PHOTO BY MARIA TRUJILLO By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate The case of a Wauchula busi nessman accused of stealingover a half-million dollars fromhis clients is expected to reachits final conclusion next week. Michael Douglas Manley, 54, a former accountant and Eco nomic Development Council of ficer, is set to appear in HardeeCircuit Court on Wednesday.The hearing, which will begin at9:30 a.m., has been docketed tolast all day. In it, according to Chief Assis tant State Attorney Brian Haas,both the prosecution and the de fense will be presenting witnesstestimony to Circuit Judge JohnK. Stargel. “If the defendant enters a plea to the charges, it will be an openplea to the court, as no plea agreement is in place,” Haassaid. “Sentencing should takeplace during that same hearing,”he added. If so, the case will reach its final disposition on that day. All courtroom proceedings are open to the public. An earlier attempt to conclude the matter failed. Manley had pleaded guilty to two of the 23 charges againsthim in a Dec. 20 plea hearingbefore Stargel in Hardee CircuitCourt. In that hearing, Stargel noted Manley’s negotiated plea agree ment was contingent upon firstreimbursing his victims for themissing money. He ordered Manley to pay nearly $600,000before his sentencing date. Stargel then set sentencing Friday, Feb. 14. But those pay ments never were made. Court records show that on Feb. 13, a day before the sen tencing hearing was to takeplace, Manley’s attorney, JamesR. “Rusty” Franklin, filed a mo tion to withdraw the pleaSee MANLEY 2A FILE PHOTO Former Wauchula accountant Michael D.

Allen Ellison, who is running for County Commission, doesn’tdeny that, but explains that hewas merely following “proto col” as he sees it. The officer involved, Capt. Brett Dowden of the BowlingGreen Police Department,viewed Ellison’s candidacystatement otherwise, however. “Iwould have charged him withthe attempt to corrupt an officer,except that he made no threat,”said Dowden on Monday. “It was just a matter of proto col, how I address myself whentalking to others,” said Ellison,33, of Wauchula, who has an-nounced as a Democratic candi date for Commission District 4. Ellison said he “in no way, shape or form was trying toleverage his position” to obtainhis goal of getting a vehicle ac cident report amended. According to the taped phone conversations, Ellison called theHardee County Sheriff’s Officedispatch line on Sat-urday after noon, identified himself byname and as a candidate for theHardee County Board of Com missioners. He said he wished tohave a report amended for er rors. When the dispatcher learned that it was a Bowling Green Po lice Department crash report,she obtained phone numberswhere Ellison could be reached,noting that the only officer onduty in Bowling Green was onpatrol and would be contacted. Capt. Brett Dowden, who was the officer on duty Saturday af ternoon, also happened to be theofficer who had investigated theApril 18 crash, which was duefor a hearing in traffic court injust two days, on Monday morn ing. ` When Dowden returned the call on Saturday, Ellison identi fied himself and stated he wasrunning for the Hardee CountyBoard of County Commission-ers. He said he “represented”the person in the crash andwished to have the record of thecrash amended as “it was factu ally inaccurate.” Ellison said his client did not speak English well and was say ing that the diagram of the acci dent was wrong and shouldSee PRESSURE? 2A Ellison Get Ready For Hurricanes Tax-Free! 4 CitySeatsOpen By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate The first of several sales tax holidays continues through Sun day.

MANLEYContinued From 1A PRESSURE?Continued From 1A4 CITYContinued From 1ATAX-FREEContinued From 1A Kelly’s Column By Jim Carl Simmons, 89, of Wauchula knows a lot about local history. In the late 1930s or early 1940s he worked part-time at Beeson’sDrug Store. He recalls someone would weekly deliver several gallons of “white lightning.” The liquid would be mixed with some cherryjuice and sold to customers as cough medicine. –––––– In mid-April the unemployment rate in the U.S. was 5.9 per cent, in Florida 5.7 percent and in Hardee County 6.3 percent. Oneyear ago the rate was U.S. 7.1, Florida 7.1, and Hardee 7.5, reportsthe Florida Department of Equal Opportunity, Bureau of Labor Mar ket Statistics. Florida’s population in 2013 was 19.2 million. In the Heartland, Hardee had a population of 27,682, a loss of 80 from 2012; DeSotohad 34,367, down 41 from 2012; and Highlands had 99,092, up 137from 2012. The state reported for 2012 the average annual wage was Florida, $43,213; Hardee, $29,821; DeSoto, $32,840; and High lands, $29,617. The Heartland lost 778 jobs this past year. There was job gains, however, in leisure and hospitality, trade, transportation, utilities,government, financial activities, and information. There were joblosses in natural resources and mining, education and health serv ices, professional and business services, manufacturing and con struction. –––––– Hardee County third graders recently beat the state average in FCAT grades for reading and math. Our third graders ranked firstin reading and math in the Heartland, and our third grade mathscores tied for first in the state, Hardee Superintendent of SchoolsDavid Duristanti recently reported. In math 73 percent of our third graders scored a level of 3 or higher, compared with a statewide average of 58 percent. Some 59percent of our third graders in reading scored a level 3 or higher,compared with a statewide average of 57 percent. Duristanti thanks the teachers, parents, faculty, staff, support personnel, administrators, students, and School Board. He alsothanks business partners, churches and civic organizations. Hequotes Proverbs 22:6: “Train up a child in the way he should go,and even when he is old he will not depart from it.” –––––– Carl Simmons, 89, of Wauchula also remembers seeing his first airplanes as a first grader at Bowling Green School. Two planeslanded in a pasture south of the school. Students were allowed to see the airplanes. The pilots offered a plane ride around the edge of town for 50 cents. Carl did not have50 cents then. He does now. –––––– Simmons also remembers a couple of men in Hardee years ago who caught and sold frogs for their legs, which are good eating.They taste a lot like chicken, with a hint of eagle and manatee. –––––– The Seventh Day Adventist Church in Wauchula voted re cently to borrow about $70,000 to jumpstart building a new church on Carl ton Street near Florida Hospital Wauchula, which is part of the Ad ventist Health System. Construction is likely to start this year. Thecongregation of 20 to 40 members has already raised $126,000. A church member donated the property for the new chur ch, which will be built by Maranatha International, affiliated with theworldwide Seventh Day Adventist Church. Maranatha will donatethe labor, which will reduce the $600,000 church project cost to$300,000, which includes landscaping. The current church is locatedon 11th Ave., a half block south of the Wauchula Family YMCA. –––––– AARP Bulletin reports eating a daily serving of peas, beans or lentils can result in a 5 percent drop in bad cholesterol, reducingheart disease risk. –––––– AARP reports Muhammad Ali, 72, has been battling Parkin son’s Disease for over 20 years. His fourth wife Lonnie, 57, and hersister Marilyn, 51, are his chief caregivers at their home in ParadiseValley, Ariz., writes Jon Saraceno. Ali doesn’t talk much and has be come more reflective and pensive. Lonnie grew up across the street from Ali — then Cassius Clay — and at age 17 knew she would spend the rest of her life with him.They married in 1986 when he was 44 and she was 29. The deaths of his mother and his archrival Joe Frazier really af fected Ali. The Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center is part of the renowned Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix and handles about 10,000patient visits a year, including 1,000 new Parkinson’s patients lastyear. About 1.5 million Americans suffer from the disease. Ad vanced age is the biggest risk factor. Lonnie says Ali has a remark able attitude toward life and never lets anything stand in his way. –––––– Renowned cardiologist Dr. Dean Ornish says people can re verse heart disease. “Our bodies have this remarkable capacity tobegin healing, if we simply stop doing what is causing the problem— making poor lifestyle choices.” He recommends getting no more than 10 percent of your calo ries from fat, exercising 30 minutes a day, reducing stress throughyoga or meditation, enhancing personal relationships, a plant-baseddiet low in sugar, and showing compassion for others such as vol unteering, says Dr. Ornish, whose program is approved by Medicare and many private health insurance programs, reports AARP. –––––– A.J. Baime has written a book describing how Ford Motor Company in World War II shifted from making automobiles to air planes that would help America win the war. Ford’s Willow RunPlant in Ypsilanti by the summer of 1944 was producing 400bombers a month. It was probably the greatest single manufacturingplant in the world, big enough for eight baseball stadiums and onefootball stadium, holding 270,000 fans and nine games, reportsBaime. His book is “The Arsenal of Democracy: FDR, Detroit, andan Epic Quest to Arm America at War.” –––––– The price of unleaded gasoline in Wauchula Tuesday was $3.52 a gallon. City Of Wauchula Comission Districts be changed. Dowden told Elli son that the client could explainhis version of the accident incourt on Monday, when bothparties would be present andcould tell the judge how they feltthe accident happened. The captain explained that the diagram was limited by the soft ware available, but that numer ous photographs more fullyexplained the accident and hisconclusion on who needed to becharged. According to the tape, Ellison continued to want the reportchanged and the police officerexplained this could not bedone. Ellison said he had donethis several times before andbeen able to get reports changed.Dowden repeated that it couldnot be done. Dowden’s report on Saturday’s call questioned El-lison’s involvement. “I cannotsay for certain what Ellison’smotivation was to identify him self as a potential powerful po litical figure in order to have anofficial record altered to suithim, but I cannot view it as any thing other than highly irregularand improper, unethical conduct. “It is especially troubling that Ellison indicated that he rou tinely participates in this type ofactivity and is a current candi date for office,” Dowden wrote. Ellison said in a Tuesday morning interview, that he juststated his position as commis sion candidate as a matter offact. “Whenever I’m in a partic ular position, I identify myselfwith it. For instance, if I’m asports agent, I identify myself inthat way when I make a call fora sports client.” He continued, “My concern was for the gentleman whom I felt was being taken advantageof, to represent someone whocan’t do it for himself. Underagency rules, anyone who repre sents someone has verbal, im plied consent or authority. “I make such calls frequently and rather than go through theexperience of ‘who are you andwhy are you calling?’ I just iden tify myself. I was never trying toleverage authority; it’s how I ad dress myself when I call. I havefound that it is customary to getreports amended. It’s what nor mally happens,” he concluded. According to an “Ellison For Congress” website that he main tains, Ellison is a 1999 HardeeHigh graduate who also carriesa 2007 Florida Southern CollegeBachelor of Arts degree in polit ical science with a minor inbusiness administration. Whilein college, he was treasurer ofthe Phi Alpha Delta Law frater nity in its international chapterand the first African-Americanpresident of the fraternity. He also helped create The Community Economic CouncilInc., was its treasurer and the or ganization’s advocate in Wash ington, D.C. As part of thatgroup, he hosted community fo rums, town hall meetings andevents to strengthen the commu nity in areas of business andhome ownership, public-privatepartnerships, government con tracting, financial literacy, tradeand commerce. In addition to noting that he speaks Spanish, Ellison’s web site lists 20 areas of expertise invarious areas of marketing, lead ership, negotiating, event plan ning, contracts, proposalwriting, strategic planning andpublic speaking. one. So, everyone should plan for their families, and where to go iftheir home becomes unlivable.Disaster supply kits should thengo with you to a shelter (whichdoesn’t supply such items), orwherever you are staying tem porarily. First, and foremost, is water, at least one gallon daily per per son for three to seven days. There should be non-perish able food, such as bread, crack ers, peanut butter, snack foodsand canned goods. Along with the First Aid kit, there should be a two-week sup ply of medications taken byadults and children in the family,and toiletries needed by eachfamily member. Blankets, pillows, and spe cialty items for that elderly per son or small child, are essential.Have the toys, games and booksavailable to keep people occu pied. There should be a supplyof clean clothing easily accessi ble. It’s also essential to have a waterproof carrier for importantdocuments, (marriage and birthcertificates, deeds, etc.) to takewith you if you are forced toleave your home. If able to stay at home, have tools available for those emer gency repairs, attaching a tar paulin, etc. Before the storm hits, get all vehicles fueled up. It could be a while before that could happenagain, when electricity takes outthe gas pump abilities. For families with pets, it’s im portant to have a supply of petfood, pet care items and sup plies.

The State Attorney’s Office did not oppose that motion, asHaas noted the prosecutor in thecase, Assistant State AttorneyLori Winstead, was notified thatthe restitution had not beenmade as ordered. Stargel canceled the Feb. 14 sentencing and returned the caseto pre-trial status. Talks betweenthe prosecution and defensebegan anew, but no new pleaagreement ever was reached. Haas said witnesses will be heard on Wednesday and Stargelis expected to rule on the matter. Manley’s Dec. 20 change of plea to “guilty” from “notguilty” was all part of extensivenegotiations between Franklinand Winstead. Ultimately, Man ley agreed to plead to charges ofgrand theft of $100,000 or moreand of $20,000 or more. In exchange for that plea, the state agreed not to prosecute 21other counts and to recommenda prison sentence of five years.Manley could have faced a max imum penalty of 60 years inprison. Manley was ordered to pay $380,762.96 to Evelyn Bailey;$118,988.42 to the UnderwoodTrust; $59,494.21 to EsterAlbritton; and $35,696.53 to theArthur Womack Family Trust. Added to that was a $39,195 reimbursement to the FloridaDepartment of Law Enforce-ment for its investigative ex-penses. Those payments were to be made as part of the plea agree ment and before his sentencingdate. Stargel cautioned Manley on Dec. 20 that if full restitutionwas not made in time, he couldface up to 60 years in prison. voters on the Primary Election ballot on Aug. 26.

DeAnnaMullins was and still is the event chair. She and her fellow commit tee members are the brains behind the event, with help from RelayFor Life staff partner Lee Ann Hinskey. Boy, are we gearing up for 2015! DeAnna already has most of her committee in place for 2015. This year’s Relay For Life contained 17 teams and 22 commit tee members (chair and subcommittee). So far the amount of moneythat was raised by the teams was $59,300. We still have until Augustto reach the goal of $100,000. The way the money is raised is through fundraising activities held all year long as well as the night of Relay. Every team does dif ferent fundraisers, such as yard sales, car washes, bake sales, etc. And let’s not forget the “flamingo flocking” of yards done by thefamily team Cure Crazy, or the arrests of bosses the team TOZman ian Devils held. Every team works very hard to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Teams are still fundraising, so remember to supportthem. This year’s track maker sponsors were Paul’s Small E ngine, Charles and Linda Adler, and Heartland Gold. Survivor dinner sponsors were Miles and Suzanne Judah. Every year they sponsor this portion of the event. She is a cancer survivorherself. Boy, let me tell you, the ladies that serv e and prepare the meal are really great. The food is always wonderful! They serve youwith a smile and they know your name. Just like the TV sitcom“Cheers,” everybody knows your name. Love the small-town friend liness! The gold sponsor was Joe L. Davis while Mosaic and Vandolah Power Co. were silver sponsors. The bronze sponsors were Semi nole Electric Cooperative, Peace River Electric Cooperative andFlorida Hospital. Mission sponsor was Vandolah Power. The sponsors for the meeting venue were the Hardee County School Board and Florida Hospital Wauchula. We are grateful tobe able to have access to these rooms. In-kind and media sponsors were The Herald-Advocate, 106.9 The Bull and the city of Wauchula. Without your help we could notlet the community know about the event. Others that helped make Relay For Life a success were Home made Creations, Carl “Elvis” Bryant, Rachel Burton, C aylah Dixon, John T. Rhey, Pastor Jim Harris, Jahna Concrete, Badcock,PhosChem, Hardee Senior High Athletics, Hardee County PublicWorks and Hardee Senior High Junior Reserve Officer TrainingCorps. Without each and every one of our sponsors and supporters, we could not make Relay For Life possible. We are truly grateful tohave the support of fellow Hardee County residents. If you would like to start a team or be on a team, watc h the paper for more info in the coming months. If you are a cancer sur vivor or know a survivor, I would love to meet them and hear theirstory. E-mail me at Goin’ For A Cure By Trayce Daniels Cancer Society Publicity Chairwoman 6:5c


6A The Herald-Advocate, June 5, 2014 DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 75-plus-year-old female in ex cellent health. My doctor'scomment on my most recentannual physical results was:"Great results on all tests. Ex cellent report." My question:Is it necessary to have anothercolonoscopy at my age andwith my good health? My mother died of colon/rec tal cancer at age 85 in 2002,and all family members wereadvised to have this procedure.My initial results were two orthree polyps removed thatwere not the type that wouldrecur and were not cancerous.The recommended follow-upwas five years. That examshowed no polyps and no rec ommendation for future fol low-up. My previous doctor has re tired, and I just received a let ter from his replacement that Iam due for another procedure.I am not inclined to do this atmy age, and considering the"all clear" reports of the pre vious exams and my generalgood health. I would appreci ate your thoughts and recom mendation. —B.J.M. ANSWER: The odds are low that the colonoscopy would findsomething there, but there is stilla small chance, especially withyour mother having had coloncancer. Not having it is reason able. But since you seem to be otherwise healthy and can expecta longer life than average, Iwould still say to get it. In fact, Iwould encourage you to have it. The booklet on colon cancer provides useful information onthe causes and cures of this com mon malady. Readers can obtaina copy by writing: Dr. Roach —No. 505W, Box 536475, Or lando, FL 32853-6475. Enclosea check or money order (no cash)for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada withthe recipient's printed name andaddress. Please allow four weeksfor delivery. DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 92 and have spinal stenosis inmy lower back and neck. Theneck stenosis is causing a bal ance problem. Who wouldtreat and/or operate on this —orthopedist or neurologist? —J.W. ANSWER: I would be very slow to recommend surgery onthe neck at age 92. I would tryother treatments, including med ication, physical therapy andpossibly injection, before consid ering surgery. Balance problems may benefit from problem-specific exercises.A neurologist may be very help ful in evaluating whether thesymptoms are indeed comingfrom the spinal stenosis, becausebalance problems can have manydifferent causes. If symptoms were intolerable despite everything that could be done short of surgery, I wouldfind the most experienced sur geon around, which could be ei ther a neurosurgeon or anorthopedic surgeon. DEAR DR. ROACH: I have been reading your articles re garding gout and blood pres sure medications. I suffer frompseudogout and take Diovan/HCTZ. Would changing thismedication have any effect onmy condition? —E.S. ANSWER: Pseudogout (liter ally, "false gout") looks a lot likegout, and both diseases arecaused by deposition of crystalsinside joints. In gout the crystal is uric acid, whereas in pseudo gout, the crystal is calcium py rophosphate. Pseudogout tendsto affect larger joints, such as theknees, whereas the big toe is theclassic place for gout. Hy drochlorothiazide (HCTZ), acommon diuretic, can make goutworse, but should have no effecton pseudogout.Dr. Roach regrets that he is un able to answer individual letters,but will incorporate them in thecolumn whenever possible.Readers may email questions toToYourGoodHealth@med.cor To view and orderhealth pamphlets, visit www.rb, or write to P.O.

What are the VA’s health-care priority groups?A.

Salute By Larry Pelton Hardee County Veteran’s Services JUST A ‘NORMAL’ DAY Continued from last week. As the family of firefighters starts to pray, they begin to have this sense of overwhelming peace, a peace that defi es all human un derstanding and comprehension. So much so that the tears stoppedflowing and a look of steadfast determination came over the facesof Frank and his men. By the time the helicopter arrived the children were ready for transport to the burn center. Just as the ambulance was preparing to leave with the father/grandfather, one of the firefighter paramedics asked the off-duty fire fighter to come into where his father was. As he entered, heexperienced a peace he had never had in his life and he watched hisdad take a breath on his own. “We got pulses, weak and thready, butwe got’m,” said the charge medic. The son began thanking Jesus for answered prayer, but his mind began to get involved and say, ”Well, Dad isn’t out of the woodsyet, and my babies are still in rough shape. Can’t get my hopes up.” However, at that instant a “still small voice” began to enter his heart and say, ”All things are possible for those who believe.” Im mediately his faith was strengthened and he exited the ambulancewith hope on his face and thanksgiving in his heart. The firefighters and family continued to pray as they “took-up,” a firefighter phrase that is commonly used to say they are puttingthe hose back on the trucks and preparing to get back into service,able to respond to more alarms. As the ambulance responded lights-and-sirens to the local hospital, the fire engines went en-route non-emergency to the hospital, praying and interceding on the behalf oftheir brother firefighter’s injured family. The ambulance crew radioed into the hospital providing vital information, and before the ambulance arrived at the hospital, thegrandfather died three times and each time the firefi ghter paramedics were able to revive him. It was really touch-and-go but they weredoing everything they could. The hospital was ready for the “code blue,” a typical phrase used when working a cardiac arrest, when the ambula nce arrived with the grandfather. The nurses, doctor and ER staff did all theycould. The family had gathered in the chapel to pray and intercedefor their loved one and the firefighters gathered around the family,their “family,” in support. Nobody knew what time it was when the doc came in and told the family that their father/grandfather had passed away, but theydid notice that there was an overwhelming peace within the chapeland the ER. They had that “blessed assurance” that they so oftensung about in church and could remember their grandfather talkingabout how he was “ready to go.” Amidst this time of sorrow there came some news of the chil dren at the burn center. The children had firstand second-degreeburns and would need skin grafting. It seemed as though this testingwas greater than they could endure — and it was, if they were to de pend upon their own strength. However, they knew through the lifewitness of their beloved grandfather/father, and in the faith of theirchildren, that “greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.” This has been a fictitious story. However, it is not an uncommon scene that is experienced by the men and women of Hardee CountyFire Rescue that are there to answer when you call. Please continueto keep us in your prayers as we are there to serve 24/7 with HonorCourage Fortitude Respect (HCFR). God bless.

Atthis point, he said, she lost con trol of the vehicle and it headedback to the right and struck thefront of the Nissan Titan. The collision carried both ve hicles to the east shoulder of I-75, the FHP said. There, the Myricks’ Nissan began to overturn. McArthur Myrick, who was driving at the time and waswearing a seatbelt, was partiallyejected. His passenger, wifeLinda Myrick, was not wearinga seatbelt and was ejected fromthe vehicle, the trooper noted. Linda Myrick died at the scene, the FHP said. McArthur Myrick was trans ported to Shands Hospital,where he was treated and thenreleased later that night. Frampton’s injuries were minor, the FHP said. Charges in the crash are pend ing completion of the homicideinvestigation.

TOPOf TheCharts as of June 2, 2014 Q: I have an enclosed front porch that has a moisture andmildew problem. Even on daysthat are just humid, not rainy,the porch smells musty andmildewy. There also is a carpetacross the porch floor thatstays damp. If I take up thecarpet, will that cure the prob lem? —Doreen in Cleveland A: Carpets retain moisture, so it could be a major contributor tothe mildew smell, even if it's an"indoor/outdoor" type carpet thatdries quickly. But another impor tant question is why so muchmoisture is getting into the en closed porch area, and why itisn't drying out quickly enoughto prevent mildew. Unseen damage and deteriora tion are usually the biggest cul prits in moisture problemsanywhere within a home. Youneed to look from top to bottomfor possible trouble spots. If theporch has an overhanging roof,look for damaged shingles orwhether the overhang has pulledslightly away from the walls.Check windows for cracks andthe frames for damaged or warp ing. Look for water stains belowwindow frames and at any poten tial entry points, such as doors,roof eaves and wall corners. Outside, check the gutter sys tem. Make sure rain gutters arein good repair and note wheredownspouts are placed and howfar from the house they extend.Downspouts that drain next tothe foundation can cause all sortsof moisture problems. Extendingthem is an inexpensive solution.Now it's time to look underneaththat carpet. Wear a filter mask toprotect yourself from moldspores, and carefully pull back acorner of the carpet. Underneath, you may find plastic sheeting, aninexpensive moisture preventionmethod for front porches. Thesheeting keeps water from dam aging the porch floor, andweather-resistant carpet providestraction. It's not an optimal solu tion, but the alternative involvesreplacing the flooring and im proving the underlayment, andthat can be expensive. Lift up that plastic sheeting as well, drawing both carpet andplastic back a foot or so, andcheck the floorboards. If they ap pear to be in good condition,that's a good start.You also need to check under neath the porch to see what theflooring looks like from there.This may be tricky, depending onhow your house is built. If theporch extends separately fromthe foundation, you (or a con tractor) can likely shimmy intoor shine a flashlight into thecrawlspace to check the under side of the floorboards and thejoists, and look and smell formold. If the foundation extendsunder the porch, access thecrawlspace or basement andcheck under the porch for poten tial water entry spots. Once you've located potential moisture trouble spots, workwith a contractor to resolve theseproblems. Be sure to get esti mates from more than one con tractor before agreeing to anywork. The faster you address theproblem, the less expensive itmay be to fix.

This Is A Hammer By Samantha Mazzotta DEAR PAW'S CORNER: Is it possible to have too manypets? My neighbor's two chil dren were proudly showing offtheir numerous house pets dur ing their first-communionparty a few days ago. Theyhave four budgies, two rabbits,a cat, a dog and an iguana!Isn't this a bit much for twoyoung children to handle? —Concerned Next Door DEAR CONCERNED: If the pets all appeared to be well-caredfor, then it's probably not a prob lem. And without knowing any thing about the situation, I'mwilling to bet that the iguana iscared for by the parents, sincetheir care and feeding is prettytricky. With caged pets — like birds, rabbits and lizards — it's usuallypretty simple to tell whetherthey're receiving good care. Iftheir cages are really dirty (pilesof waste, very smelly sawdustbedding) and if there isn't cleanwater available, then there is likely a problem. With other pets,behavior and living area can besigns. Was the dog badly be haved, or was it well-socialized,or kept in a quiet room to staycalm during the party? Did younotice or smell an overflowinglitter box? If none of these signs were ap parent, then the family is proba bly taking pretty good care of alltheir pets. The fact that the kidsproudly showed off their pets toparty guests is a good sign. With younger kids, parents' in volvement in keeping, caring forand training pets is important.Parents have the opportunity toteach children not just responsi bility, but awareness of andcompassion for other living crea tures. In the case of your neigh bors, if the pets appear to becared for, then I'd say the parentsare doing their jobs, and youhave no more cause for conern.Send your questions or com ments to (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

June 5, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B Smoke-free multi-unit hous ing, a growing trend throughoutthe country, is making its wayto Florida. Across the state, there are more than 500 smoke-freemulti-unit housing propertiesand 73,000 smoke-free units.Locally, the Hardee CountyTobacco Prevention Program isencouraging local residentialbuildings to go smoke-free aswell. Smoke-free policies can pro tect residents from secondhandsmoke and smoking-relatedfires, the local group notes. For property managers and landlords, smoke-free policiescan have economic benefits.More than 80 percent ofFloridians are non-smokers.Many people who do smoke donot permit smoking in theirhomes. Given these numbers,many properties have very suc cessfully marketed their smoke-free policy as an amenity, not arestriction. Smoke-free policies can save money by eliminating the needto repair or replace carpeting,floors, fixtures, countertops orappliances damaged by burns ornicotine stains. At the end of alease, smoke-free units requireless turnover time due to fewerpreparation and repaintingneeds. In one Florida survey of 421 managers of smoke-free proper ties, 99.5 percent of the man agers agreed that smoke-freepolicies do not hurt occupancyand 30.1 percent believed thatthey increased occupancy. Tobacco smoke can move along air ducts, through cracksin the walls and floors, throughelevator shafts and alongplumbing and electrical lines,affecting units that are nearby.Tobacco smoke contains morethan 7,000 chemicals, hundredsof which are toxic and at least70 known to cause cancer.Exposure, even for short peri ods of time, can be dangerous. “A home should be a safe place for everyone, especiallyfor children, people with exist ing health conditions and theelderly, who are more vulnera ble to the effects of secondhandsmoke,” said Patty Saunders,tobacco prevention specialist. “By making sure that residen tial buildings are 100 percentsmoke-free, property managersare protecting tenants from thedangers of toxic smoke andfrom the risk of deadly smok ing-related fires,” she added. The following are some of the reasons to protect tenantsfrom exposure to secondhandsmoke: 9$".-#' -#2,.*$(2 causally linked to heart disease,stroke, several cancers, lowerrespiratory illnesses, and im-paired lung function. 9 "'8$ 1$7/.241$3.2$" ondhand smoke causes an esti mated 33,000 premature deathsfrom heart disease and about3,400 premature deaths fromlung cancer. 9.-2,.*$12$7/.2$#3. secondhand smoke at home orat work increase their risk ofdeveloping heart disease by 25to 30 percent and their risk ofdeveloping lung cancer by 20 to30 percent. 9$".-#' -#2,.*$" trigger an asthma attack.

B B y y M M A A R R L L E E N N E E R R I I C C K K E E L L S S H H Y Y D D E E Special To The Herald-Advocate Memorial Day brings to mind images of backyard bar-b-ques,picnics in the park, wavingAmerican flags and parades.For many it has simply becomea day off from work with spe ical sales for the holiday.However, for most of us, it is aday of rememberance; a day toreflect and honor those whopaid the ultimate sacrifice in thename of freedom. The origins of special servic es honoring those who died inwar can be found in antiquity.The great Athenian leader,Pericles, offered a tribute to thefallen heroes of the Pelopon-nesian War over 24 centuriesago that could be applied todayto the 1.1 million Americanswho have died in our nation’swars. The history behind Memorial Day begain in 1868, three yearsafter the Civil War ended.General John Logan, nationalcommander of the Grand Armyof the Republic, established“Decoration Day,” as it wasfirst called, as a time for thenation to decorate the graves ofthe war dead with flowers.General Logan urged that “weshould guard their graves withsacred vigilance ... and testify tothe present and future genera tions that we have not forgottenas a people the cost of a free andundivided republic.” The month of May was cho sen as the flowers would be inbloom by then. The first largeobservance was held atArlington National cemetery tohonor the Civil Ward dead in1868. Many states lay claim to being the first to celebrate“Decoration Day.” In 1966,President Lyndon Johnsondeclared Waterloo, New York,as the official “birthplace” ofMemorial Day, due to New York being the first State to rec ognize the holiday in 1873. Itwasn’t until after World War Ithat the day was expanded tohonor those who died in allwars. The tradition of wearing a red poppy on Memorial Day beganin 1915 when a poem was writ ten in response to “In Flander’sFields.” The idea quicklyspread to other countries that by1922 it was a national programto wear a red poppy to honor allwho have died serving theirnation in time of war. We cherish too, the Poppy Red, That grows on fields wherevalor led, It seems to signal tothe skies That blood of heroesnever dies. In 1950, Congress passed a resolution requesting thePresident to issue a proclama tion calling on all Americans toobserve each Memorial Day asa day of prayer for permanentpeace and designate a portion ofthat day when people of theUnited States might unite inprayer. In 1968, President Johnson signed into law the renaming of“Decoration Day to MemorialDay.” Almost every state nowcelebrates Memorial Day on thelast Monday in May; Congresspassed the National HolidayAct in 1971 to ensure a three-day weekend observance. Traditional observance of Memorial Day has diminishedover the years in many places.But, ever since the late 1950s, on the Thursday beforeMemorial day, the 1.200 sodiersof the 3rd US Infantry placesmall American flags on each ofthe more than 260,000 grave stones at Arlington NationalCemetery. They then patrol 24hours a day during the weekendto ensure each flag remainsstanding. To help remind Americans of the true meaning of MemorialDay, the “National Moment ofRememberance” resolution waspassed in December 2000which asks that at 3 p.m. localtime, all Americans “voluntari ly and informally observe intheir own way a Moment ofRememberance and respect,pausing from whatever they aredoing for a moment of silenceor by listening to the playing of“Taps.” For me personally, Memorial Day will forever have a specialmeaning—my brother, Freder-ick D. Rickels, United StatesMarine Corps, who died inVietnam, was buried with fullmilitary honors on MemorialDay, 1968. He is in the compa ny of our dad, Ralph W.Rickels, a verteran of WorldWar II and our grandfather,William C. Rickels, a verteranof World War I. Many of you in the audience today are military veterans andhave seen combat; you werewilling to sacrifice your life forthe cause of freedom. For that Isay “Thank You.” Many of youhave lost loved ones in militaryduring combat. Nothing canreplace the loss of a loved onebut know that they walk thestreets of Heaven and we honorthem all here today! For it is written in the scrip ture of John 15:13 — “Greaterlove hath no man than this; thata man lay down his life for hisfriends.” I think this rings trueof a soldier’s love and devotionto his country as well. The History Of Memorial Day The flag-folding ceremony represents the same religiousprinciples on which our greatCountry was originally found ed. The portion of the flag denot ing honor is the canton of bluecontaining the stars represent ing states our veterans served inuniform. The canton field ofblue dresses from left to rightand is inverted only whendraped as a pall on the casket ofa veteran who has served ourcountry honorably in uniform. In the U.S. Armed Forces, at the ceremony of retreat, the flagis lowered, folded in a trianglefold and kept under watchthroughout the night as a tributeto our nation’s honored dead.The next morning it is broughtout and, at the ceremony ofreveille, run aloft as a symbol ofour belief in the resurrection ofthe body. Symbols for the Folds of the Flag: The first fold of our flag is a symbol of life The second fold is a symbol of our belief in eternal life The third fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veteran departing our ranks and who gave a portion of his orher life for the defense of ourcountry to attain peace through out the world. The fourth fold represents our weaker nature ; as American citizens trusting God, it is toHim we turn in times of peace,as well as in times of war, ofHis divine guidance. The fifth fold is a tribute to our country, for in the words ofStephen Decatur, “Our country,in dealing with other countries,may she always be right, but itis still our country, right orwrong.” The sixth fold is for where our hearts lie. It is with ourheart that we pledge allegianceto the flag of the United Statesof America, and to the republicfor which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with lib erty and justice for all. The seventh fold is a tribute to our armed forces, for it isthrough the armed forces thatwe protect our country and ourflag against all enemies,whether they be found within orwithout the boundaries of ourrepublic. The eighth fold is a tribute to the one who entered into thevalley of the shadow of death,that we might see the light ofday, and to honor our mother,for whom it flies on Mother’sDay. The ninth fold is a tribute to womanhood, for it has beenthrough their faith, love, loyaltyand devotion that the characterof the men and women whohave made this country greathave been molded. The 10th fold is a tribute to father, for he, too, has given hissons and daughters for thedefense of our country since heor she was first born. The 11th fold, in the eyes of Hebrew citizens, represents thelower portion of the seal ofKing David and King Solomonand glorifies, in their eyes, theGod of Abraham, Isaac andJacob. The 12th fold, in the eyes of a Christian citizen, represents anemblem of eternity and glori fies, in their eyes, God theFather, the Son and Holy Ghost. When the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost,reminding us of our nationalmotto, “In God We Trust.” After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it has theappearance of a cocked hat,ever reminding us of the sol diers who served under Gen.George Washington and thesailors and Marines who servedunder Capt. John Paul Jonesand were followed by theircomrades and shipmates in theU.S. Armed Forces, preservingfor us the rights, privileges andfreedoms we enjoy today. Meaning Of Flag-Folding Program June 5, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 11B Hello Community: I would like to take this opportunity to let you knowabout some exceptionalemployees at McDonald’s,Sonic and the Wauchula PoliceDepartment. I recently lost my purse which had some things I couldnot replace inside. It fell of thebumper of my truck on the roadin between Sonic andMcDonald’s. I did not realize ituntil I returned home then Iimmediately retraced my trav els but to no avail. I then called the WPD and they responded within minutesto my home where I made areport. The officer met me atSonic where we spoke to amanager and some employeeswho did not see what happenedbut would keep and eye out forany information. As I was leaving I saw anoth er Sonic employee stop the offi cer and point in the direction ofMcDonald’s as he was talkingto him. I watched in my rearview mirror as the officer thencrossed over into Mcdonald’sparking lot. I am a volunteer at the Avon Park Bingo Hall, and I was run ning late for my shift so i justcontinued on not knowing whatwas going on. Before I got toPeace River bridge I received acall from the officer telling methat he had my purse! I call mymanager and told him I wasrunning late but would be thereand turned around and met theofficer at my house. He told me that this Sonic employee had seen theMcDonald’s employee stop inthe road and pick up a blackbag, he wasn’t sure what hap pened after that but to check atMcDonald’s. So, the officerwent to McDonald’s and foundthat the female employee hadturned the purse into her man ager! I retrieved my purse from the officer. Everything was stillinside. I had been praying toGod to please help me find mypurse! I prayed that a goodChristian person would find itand return it to me. God answered my prayers, and I want to thank the Lord,the girl who found my purse,the boy who helped locate her,the other Sonic employees whohelped with gathering informa tion, the Sonic’s manager, theMcDonald’s manager, and theofficer who took the time toinvestigate immediately! I am writing this public thank-you to let the communityknow that there are many greatpeople in this communitybehind the scenes in the busi nesses that we frequent. I wantto praise these employees fortheir honesty and dedication tothe positions they hold in theirjobs. Thank you, thank you, thank you ... I cannot thank youenough!

Of course, it would have meant a sizeable cut inpay, but let’s face it. Which is worse, a cut in pay or a slit throat. –––––– Thomas Edison did not invent electricity but harnessed it, and we the people have been paying the light bill ever since. –––––– I told her she would just have to come to grips with my drinking and to her credit she did come to grips with it. In factmy neck is still bruised because of both her hands around mythroat. –––––– Sanity is born but once, but insanity a thousand times over. –––––– Recently in my column I asked all my readers out there in Paperville had any of them ever seen a photo of Adolph Hitler ina short-sleeve shirt. The ones I talked to say no they hadn’t, onlyin heavy coats and what have you he wore in the pictures. Well,I’ll tell you why.

Without any doubt Allen’s name should fit comfort ably among such other names as Einstein, Darwin, professor B.K.Brocton. Oh, I forgot. Someone shot him. Well anyway Allen likeEinstein is somewhat of a phizzelogist himself. It truly tears myheart out knowing that bunch of bureaucrats snatched him out ofhis laboratory and hauled him off in a government car. Shame,shame on them. Allen, best of luck, sleep tight, my friend. –––––– I think I finally know why we are having so many lawsuits across America today.

C The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, June 5, 2014 PAGE ONE A veteran Hardee cheerleader will change uniforms after grad uation. Lacey McClenithan was among those recently named tothe University of South Floridacheerleading squad. The 18-year-old daughter of Ross and Renee’ McClenithanof Hollandtown Road, Wau-chula, will enter the college inthe fall to begin a major in mar keting. “I have intentions of be coming a fashion merchandisemarketer, marketing de-signedclothes and fashion worldwide.” She follows the example of older brothers, Brenton, a USFgrad with a degree in computerengineering, and Brek, a Warn-er University grad with a majorin exercise science and minor inbusiness administration. Lacey says it was the help of the Edge Cheer Center in Se-bring, Leanna Himrod and herfamily for pushing her to strivefor success that made herdreams become a reality. “Over the years, nothing has become more real to me than re alizing that with God as my per sonal Lord and Savior, I canachieve the things that mayseem impossible,” she says. It took all of that to become a Bulls cheerleader. Trying outwas a three-day process withmultiple cuts throughout thelong weekend. “There were cer tain requirements of skill youhad to perform at tryouts and ittook a great amount of determi nation and faith, with faith beingthe most important,” she ex plains. She had a lot of experience to draw from. She has been acheerleader for seven years, be ginning way back in junior high.She was a co-captain in herfreshman season and captain inthe sophomore year. “Cheering is my passion and I’ve been able to obtain thosequalities over the years that willbetter my future. From responsi bility to leadership and commu nication skills and volunteeringin the community, being some one who is looked up to mymany young girls. It’s all helpedme,” she says. “Now, I strive to continue this opportunity as a University ofSouth Florida Coed Cheer-leader and I will represent USFjust as I have my home town,Hardee County,” she concludes. Local Cheerleader Goes Collegiate COURTESY PHOTO Lacey McClenithan (first row, far right) has been a Lady Wildcat c heerleader. Now she turns to cheering for the Uni versity of South Florida Bulls. COURTESY PHOTO A trio of Hardee Wildcat baseball players will continue to use their ta lents at the college level. Under the enthusiastic eye of Coach Steve Rewis, who led the Wildcats to a district championship this year with an all-time high 20-4 record, the trio a nnounced their choices recently. At left, catcher Kramer Royal will play for the Fire at Sou theastern Uni versity in Lakeland. In center, pitcher/fielder Garrett Albritton will play for the South Florida State College Panthers in Avon Park. At right, pitcher/infielder Kris Johnson will suit up for the Webber Warriors of nearby Lake Wales. BASEBALL FUTURES Not All Roads Lead To Heaven The greatest Christian compromise is now progressing at an unprecedented rate of speed. The ideas expounded by thismovement are that all religious roads lead to heaven and nomatter what particular beliefs anyone holds, it is not import ant enough to matter. This is surely — unity at all cost. The goal is the unification of everyone in the world. As the only Way (John 14:6) to heaven is misrepresented, the path is paved for satan, working through that great paganinstitution disguised as the supreme universal Christian c hurch, to compel everyone to submit to his counterfeit day of rever ence and worship of the true God — The Creator of Heaven andEarth (Exodus 20:11). But Jesus says to come out, lest y ou share in her sins and receive her plagues (Revelatio n 18:4). See Revelation 14:9-12 and Revelation 3:5 now. This is the greatfinal gathering of many into the highway of eternal loss (R eve lation 13:3). These statements are not given as an attack on anyone or any groups of people but is a warning against a satanic souldestroying error (1st Thessalonians 5:21). God desires all t o re pent and be saved!!! For information about this vital subject write to: Bible Studies Unlimited P.O. Box 2385 Wauchula, FL 33873 5:29,6:5p 6:5c 5:22-6:5c

June 5, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3C SFSC Class of 2014 Celebrates Commencement It was a time of endings and a time of beginnings, a time to saygoodbye to friends and mentors,a time to look to the promise ofthe future. For the South Florida State College graduates who gatheredin the SFSC Theatre for the Per forming Arts on May 6, the 2014Commencement Ceremony wasa time to celebrate. The joy of the occasion was evident as graduates waved tocheering relatives and friends asthey crossed the stage to accepttheir baccalaureate degrees, as sociate degrees, college and vo cational certificates, and highschool diplomas. Over 905 students met SFSC graduation requirements. Ofthese, 755 received their associ ate degrees, vocational certifi cates or college credit certif-icates, and 136 are graduates ofthe adult education program.Fourteen students were the firstto receive a Bachelor of AppliedScience in Supervision & Man agement degree from SFSC. Participating in commence ment were 285 students. “To my fellow classmates, be both proud of and thankful foryour degree,” said AnthonyEvans of Wauchula, commence ment speaker. “It is going toopen so many doors of opportu nity for you that would havebeen closed without it.” Evans went on to quote from the movie “Ferris Beuller’s DayOff.” “In that movie, FerrisBeuller says, ‘Life moves prettyfast. If you don’t stop and lookaround once in a while, youcould miss it.’ The older you get,the more you begin to appreciatethat phrase,” said Evans.“Take your education and futureprofessions seriously, but don’tforget to enjoy this time in yourlife as well. This part of yourjourney is one that you are going to reminisce about for the rest ofyour life. Embrace it, enjoy it,build new relationships, main tain the old ones, don’t ever stoplearning, don’t ever take forgranted how much your educa tion will better your future, andmost importantly, remember totake a step back from it all fromtime to time to appreciate howamazing your life truly is.” Evans participated in SFSC’s rigorous Honors Program,worked full-time, and was ayoung parent all while maintain ing a 4.0 grade-point averageand earning his Associate of ArtsDegree in physics. Evans has already been ac cepted into the University ofFlorida and will pursue a Bach elor’s Degree in physics. Speaking on behalf of the Dis trict Board of Trustees, chair man Joe Wright encouraged thenew graduates to embrace futureeducational opportunities and tocelebrate the enhancement oftheir employability in the work place. “We celebrate your hard work, and we celebrate the sac rifices made not only by you butalso those sacrifices made byyour family and friends in help ing you get to this joyful occa sion,” he said.

COURTESY PHOTO Anthony Evans, student speaker at SFSC’s 2014 Com-mencement Ceremony, accepts congratulations from Dr.Thomas C. Leitzel, college president. Evans, a physicsmajor, received multiple honors for academic excellence. More than a dozen students have completed South FloridaState College’s first Bachelor’sDegree program, the Bachelorof Applied Science in Supervi-sion & Management. And their plans for the future are as varied as their individual ity. Students Juana Ayala, Michael Gergen and GaylinThomas will initially apply whatthey’ve learned to their currentjobs. Others will continue theireducation, taking advantage ofthe Bachelor’s Degree as a pre requisite for entering a Master’sDegree program. While their plans vary, the program chosen for the firstBachelor’s Degree can be ap plied to many careers and that,the graduating students say, ben efits all students as does theproximity of the college. SFSC first offered the BAS in the fall 2012. The 14 graduatesof the program celebrated theirgraduation on May 6. Kevin Brown, dean, said the new Bachelor’s Degree programwas, “a mammoth leap into anew realm. What it does for stu dents is offer the whole package.The Associate’s Degree wasonly halfway. “Everybody embraced the Bachelor’s Degree. The college,the community, and I have neverbeen prouder of a group of stu dents than I am of these,” hesaid. The initial focus of the fouryear degree has been business.The focus is applicable and adaptable to many areas, ac-cording to Dr. Tina Cardenas,lead instructor of the program. But Brown said the emphasis is evolving, based on the needsof the local business community,and he mentioned a growingneed for bachelor-educated stu dents in the areas of criminaljustice and agriculture. Graduate Thomas said the benefits of the degree were im provements in her writing andspeaking techniques, criticalthinking skills and, as a non-tra ditional adult student, the oppor tunity to learn how the youngergeneration thinks, lives and op erates. “My love has always been ed ucation,” said the grandmotherof three. She not only made ed ucation her career but hasworked to further her own edu cation over her lifetime. Ayala is the assistant town clerk for the town of ZolfoSprings and the mother of four.She said a supportive family,friends and husband made itpossible to achieve her goal toearn the Bachelor’s Degree. Shehopes to someday work in fi nance for a large company. Gergen works at the Fairmont Cinema in Sebring. He lovesand respects the family-ownedoperation, has learned from itand from his continued educa tion, and hopes to continue inthe commercial theater industry. Austin Mock wants to apply his degree to government workoverseas, with a preference forGermany, where he spent much of his life. “I’ve had a life, been married, had babies, and loved my job atBlockbuster,” said Gail Cush-ing. Her plans are now to movetoward a Master’s Degree. Course work in the BAS pro gram has tested students in apositive way. Cushing de-scribed an eight-week writingsession as brutal but beneficial.“It was very exciting, but it wasnot easy,” she said. Franciso Lozano echoed her sentiments. “It was challengingand seemed impossible. But themore I wrote, the more efficientI became. My spelling and vo-cabulary improved. The wayyou speak improves. Now I geta sense of relaxation from writ ing.” He said some of the research into large, successful corpora tions and smaller, local compa nies was particularly inspiring.Lozano mentioned Ford MotorCo. and the early developmentof Disney World. He said thatnumerous methods and strate gies can be learned from thoseand other endeavors. Some, hesaid, are the same that are ap plied to local businesses. The BAS degree program is open to students who haveearned an Associate’s Degree.The upper-level work teachesmethods of applying manage ment practices, leadership de-velopment, finance, and basichumans relations practice andprepares students for supervi sory and management opportu nities within their technicalfields. SFSC Hands Out Its First Bachelor Degrees Anthony Evans of Wauchula addressed fellow graduates asthe student speaker for SouthFlorida State College’s Com-mencement Ceremony on May6. Evans graduated with honors with an Associate in Arts degreein physics, and has maintained a4.0 grade-point throughout hisstudies. He thrives on new: new proj ects, new endeavors. He haschanged professions, changedfields of study, and his life cir cumstances have changed.“Most things have a hard timeholding my interest because Ibecome bored with them after awhile,” he said. But not his love of science. “Science has always managed to hold my interest because thereis always something new tolearn, boundaries of understand ing waiting to be explored, andit is complicated enough towhere I won’t ever get boredknowing it all and feeling I haveno way to expand my knowl edge in it,” he said. His next step is working to ward a Bachelor’s Degree in as trophysics at the University ofFlorida in the fall. “I have lovedscience since I was a child. Al though it took a while for me torealize that I should be doing itas a profession, the more I learnabout it, the more I love it,”Evans said. Now Evans has a child, 1year-old Piper, who has ampli fied his goal to pursue hispersonal calling to include “pro viding her a good life.” His academic and community service life has been full. Evansis the president of the Tau Epsilon chapter of Phi Theta Kap-pa, an international honor soci ety that recognizes andencourages academic achieve ment for two-year college stu dents. Evans was also chosen to be a member of Phi Theta Kappa’s2014 Coca-Cola All-Florida Ac ademic Team. His accoladescontinue with awards such as2014 Outstanding Student of theYear for Honors GeneralPhysics with Calculus I and IIand 2013 Outstanding Studentof the Year for General Chem istry. He had several favorite in structors at SFSC, one of whomwas Erik Christensen, physicsand astronomy professor. “An thony Evans has been an ideal student in my physics classes.Not satisfied with just under standing material, he alwayswants to dig deeper, startingfrom first principles, until hefeels that he has fully mastereda concept. “He is a classroom leader, his peers look up to him, and hefreely gives his time and effortto help anyone who asks. I haveno doubt that he will excel in theworkplace as he has done in myclass and laboratory,” he contin ued. Evans’ love for his daughter heightens his need and desire toexcel both as a student and fa ther. “It’s about multi-tasking,definitely.” That keeps Evans moving for ward. And he’s not bored!
