PHOTO BY MICHAEL KELLY James Stallings, trustee of the Underwood Estate, reads from a stat ement prepared by Clarrisa Underwood Timmons, the mother of heirs Virginia and Thomas, as Circuit Judge John K. Stargel listens and takes notes. By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate She testified that she slept in a car, a tent and sometimes a shed. The judge asked why, as she had a trust fund of $1.2 million. “Because Michael Manley had the checkbook,” EstherAlbritton replied. Another victim said despite her trust funds totaling morethan a half-million, Manley con vinced her to take out a mort gage on her home after asluggish economy hurt her retailbusiness. Then he stole the mortgage money, too, Evelyn Bailey toldthe judge. And so a day’s worth of “im pact statements” filled HardeeCircuit Court immediately fol lowing ex-businessman MichaelD. Manley’s guilty pleas to 23felony counts grand theft and money laundering. In accepting Manley’s pleas, Circuit Judge John K. Stargelnoted any previous plea dealwith the prosecution was nulland void, and that Manley nowfaced a sentence of 597 monthsin state prison, or 49 years andnine months. Manley simply replied, “Yes, Your Honor,” in confirming thathe understood the full implica tions of his guilty pleas. Then Assistant State Attorney Lori Winstead entered into thesentencing phase of the hearingby noting she intended to pres ent statements from three of Manley’s victims. Stargel noted a number of let ters were filed with the court onManley’s behalf. Further, de-fense lawyer James R. “Rusty”Franklin wished to offer charac ter witnesses along with testi mony of the need for restitutionto the victims. By the close of the hearing on Wednesday of last week, all tes timony had not yet been heard.Stargel ordered the hearing con tinued to a later date. That date was set this week, and will be six weeks out, onMonday, July 28, in Hardee Cir cuit Court. Esther Albritton was the first to take the stand for the prosecu tion. She told the judge Manleywas a friend, adding “my familytrusted him.” As she testified regarding the judge’s sentencing of Manley,See MANLEY 2A By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate People with certain severe medical conditions are now ableto get marijuana to help themmanage their illnesses.

Hence, Hardee County Emer gency Management will hold amock shooting exercise Fridayat Wauchula Elementary School.The realistic event will bring thesound of gunfire to the cityneighborhood, but no real gunsor ammunition will be used. People are advised not to panic; it’s all for the sake of pre paredness. Since the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in 2012, therehave been about 74 more, ac cording to The Huffington Post.That’s about 1.37 shootings foreach school week. The most re cent occurred in Troutdale, Ore.,where a 15-year-old killed an other student and injured ateacher before committing sui cide. Hardee County Emergency Management wants to be pre pared in the event of a schoolshooting here.

Plaintiff in the matter is John Terrell. Named respondents arethe Hardee County Board ofCounty Commissioners and theHardee County Industrial De-velopment Authority. The 17-page document was filed in Hardee Circuit Courtelectronically on Saturday byCape Coral lawyer Ralf Brookes. A copy also was e-mailed to Ken Evers inWauchula, who serves as attor ney for both the County Com mission and the IDA. The petition notes that on May 15, the County Commis-sion approved a rezoning appli cation from the IDA despiteApril 3 and April 24 recommen dations of denial by its ownPlanning & Zoning Board. At issue is a 104-acre parcel adjacent to the Hardee Com-merce Park on State Road 62 ashort distance west of U.S. 17. The tract had been zoned Farm Residential and MultipleFamily Residential. The rezon ing approved by the CountyCommission changed its statusto Commercial/Industrial Busi-ness Center. Terrell, via attorney Brookes, is requesting an order from theCircuit Court judge “quashingand reversing” the commission’sdecision, “rendering null andvoid” the rezone approval. Brookes claims three reasons for the court to “reverse or re mand” the county’s action, as serting: 1.) Violation of constitutional procedural due process, allegingcounty commissioners failed to“adequately disclose” the namesof people with whom they heldex parte communications out side of the public hearings. 2.) Failure to meet essential requirements of the law, whichstate that the landowner seekinga rezone has the burden of prov ing the proposal is consistentwith the county’s Comprehen-sive Land Use Plan and com plies with Zoning Codeprocedural requirements, andthe See DECISION 11A

He suffered from diabetes and wrote an autobiography entitled “Timeless Echoes.” Some of his paintings were sold toHardee County residents. she stated, “I believe MichaelManley should stay in jail for avery long time, even though hewill have food, clothing andshelter. His living conditionswill probably be better thanmine.” Albritton said she became suspicious of Manley’s handlingof her trust funds years ago. “I told the Sheriff’s Office in 2004 something was wrong, butno one would listen to me,” shesaid. “Mr. Manley did what he wanted to do,” Albritton stated. In his turn to question Albritton, Franklin showed that resti tution was essential to thisvictim’s future livelihood. Next on the stand was James Stallings, trustee of the Under wood Trust. He read a statementprepared by Clarrisa Under wood Timmons, mother of heirsVirginia and Thomas Under wood. “In writing this it is difficult not to appear vindictive,” Tim-mons said. “I believe Mr. Man ley deserves to serve a fullsentence.” She pointed out what all the victims experienced, the factthat the state was not able to goback and charge Manley for allthe years the thefts took place.Instead, a five-year time framesustained the 23 counts againsthim, but failed to represent thefull amounts of money nowmissing. “Because he embezzled” over a half-million dollars, her chil dren “were forced to sell” thefamily home which is listed onthe National Registry of HistoricPlaces and all its contents “atauction on the lawn.” Then, Timmons added, as read by Stallings, “The mostegregious thing is he tried to actas a mentor, a father, while steal ing their money.” Franklin asked Stallings about the children’s current financialstatus, prompting, “Would youagree with me they have a greatneed for restitution in this case?” But Winstead countered, ask ing Stallings, “Are they destituteand without food and shelter andwater? Does the need for thatrestitution outweigh their desireto see Mr. Manley punished?” “No,” Stallings replied.Evelyn Bailey, the widow of Walter Bailey, spoke of thetrusts her husband establishedand funded for her future as heprepared for his death from LouGehrig’s Disease. “He told me Michael Manley as trustee would take care” ofthe half-million left in his hands,she said. “He told me how muchI could draw each year and keepthe principal intact. He told meMike would give me moneywhen I needed it.” Once, when she wanted to give one of her children somemoney, her daughter noted,“Mama, he acts like it’s hismoney and not ours.” “Little did I know how true that was,” Bailey told the judge. Manley pillaged her trusts, leaving only $1,800. He keptmoney she received in takingout a mortgage on her home anddeposit money from the sale ofher husband’s State Farm officebuilding. “At age 63, I’m working 12 hours a day. This is not what Ithink Walter envisioned for me,”she said in telling Stargel shemaintains her retail sales busi ness and holds down a part-timejob as well. “Everybody’s always telling me my tires are bald. And, yes, Ishouldn’t be driving, but there’sno money at the end of themonth,” she said. Bailey told the judge that when Manley’s original pleadeal fell through because he wasnot able to pay the ordered resti tution, she was “heartbroken.” “I had to relive the whole or deal again,” she said. “Seeingthe progression made me ill,”she noted in describing all thechecks Manley wrote for hisown use. “This was not a mis take; he stole it over time.” Further, she concluded, “He’s shown no remorse to me.” Following a lunch break in the lengthy sentencing hearing,Franklin presented a characterwitness to speak on Manley’sbehalf. Dr. Nick Timmermantook the stand, telling Stargel, “Iknow he’s done a lot of charitywork, I know that for a fact.” Timmerman gave the example of a man in Bowling Green whobenefitted from an air condi tioner Manley helped to provide. Stargel asked if Timmerman knew where Manley’s share ofthat cost came from. Timmer-man noted his did not. Timmerman also said, “I be lieve he’s truly remorseful andrepentant.” He said Manley has sold his house, possessions and business,and has changed his lifestyle.“Given the chance, he wouldwork hard to pay it back,” Tim merman told the judge. Lisa Manley described her husband as “civic-minded” andsaid he was an elder in theirchurch. She said when he was arrested on Nov. 14, 2011, it came as asurprise. “That was a total shockfor me. I did know that he wasstressed financially, but I did notknow the extent. I know heworked a lot,” she said. Stargel asked Lisa Manley if her husband had expressed toher any remorse for what hap pened. “Yes, he has,” she replied. “He wants to be able to workand pay back the money.” Richard Dicks, a Polk County citrus businessman, said Man-ley has handled his business andfamily accounting for about 25years. “He’s genuinely sorry forwhat’s transpired, and he wantsto make it right,” Dicks said. Dicks told the judge he was willing to loan Manley $200,000 toward payment of restitution ofhis victims “if he’s not going tojail.” Dicks said he would want that loan repaid to him, and be lieves Manley will do so. “There’s justice and there’s mercy,” Dicks said. “Not to givehim mercy would prevent justicehere, because he’s not going tobe able to pay the money back.” Franklin ended his witness presentation by telling the judgeothers in the courtroom wereprepared to testify in much thesame vein in Manley’s behalf.He also again referred to the let ters written in support of Manleyby community members. The list of letter writers was entered into court records, andincludes: Glen Bowen anfFrieda Bowen, Donna ManleyEnglish, Lorraine Gillespie, Dr.Ernest Palmer and GaylePalmer, Dr. Nick Timmerman,Dave Travers, Mr. and Mrs.Doug Battey and Nona E.Dasher. Also, Joseph F. Smith and Ellen E. Smith, John Gill, MerleRedding, Tonda Armstrong,Brenda K. Sutton, Mark White,Michael C. Young, John W.H.Burton, Richard G. Dicks andRoy A. Jacobs. In suspending the sentencing hearing to another date, Win stead asked the judge to “re mand” Manley, meaning to takehim into custody during the in terim. “He’s looking at 49 years in prison,” she pointed out in con tending he would be a possibleflight risk. “I’m going to grant that re quest,” Stargel said. “Until I fin ish hearing the rest of testimony,it’s appropriate. He has pled to23 felonies and is looking atspending the rest of his life inprison.” Stargel ordered bailiffs to take Manley into custody. As he emptied his pockets and removed his jewelry, his wifecollected the valuables, touchedhis hand briefly and said, “I loveyou.” Manley was then led from the courtroom in handcuffs.

She made sure her friend had on her seatbelt but did not takethe same precaution for herself. Christina’s mother Sue had al ways said to call her for help ora ride if she was unable to drive.

Christina’s head hitwindshield, and she wound up inthe backseat from the impact.Her neck and spinal cord werebroken. On June 6 she spoke to the Hardee High School seniors at abreakfast sponsored by HardeeAlliance for Substance Abuseand Teen Pregnancy Prevention(ASAPP), held at the HardeeAgri-Civic Center. “One simple mistake can change your life forever,” said the Wauchula native and 1990HHS graduate. “One year aftergraduation I had a drug-relatedaccident and was in the hospitalfor eight months.” Christina was 1999 Miss Wheelchair Florida, works atFlorida Department of Educa-tion Vocational Rehabilitation,and in a few weeks will have amaster’s degree in rehabilitationcounseling. “At age 19 I worked for a group of nine doctors and wasgoing to school. I had broken upwith my boyfriend earlier in themonth. I went to River Ranchwith a girlfriend. We were par tying, and I was not carded.”The legal drinking age is 21. “My friend was pretty drunk.” I could have called for help butdecided to drive my friendhome. I did not put my seatbelton but made sure my friend hada seatbelt on.

She and theparamedic who found her in the wrecked car remain friends.They are thankful for each other.The paramedic admiresChristina’s courage and outlook. “I can never go back and redo that night. It is so easy tomake a mistake. You need tothink ahead.” Christina said she knew a boy who said, “If you can’t play withthe big dogs, stay at home.” Hedied six months later in an auto mobile accident. “In the blink of an eye things can change. One night of drink ing 24 years ago ... it’s not worthit.

8A The Herald-Advocate, June 19, 2014 Wauchula NewsBy Jan Wilkins 773-0618 I love to write, and this col umn has given me an outlet for a bit of creativity. I still need your help to make it much bet ter. Please feel free to contact me. I am sure many of you have great items of interest to those of our Wauchula community The rain, over three inches at my home during the past week or so, has really helped to get plants growing and showing off the beauty of their foliage. I am one that needs to get plants re potted and reset before I lose them completely. The getting started is my holdup, but once I do I will have some beauties. New Hope Baptist Church was happy to receive their sec ond mission team home on Monday, the 16th. Those who were involved in this last ven ture were Talmadge and Cyndi Albritton and their son, Garrett. Timmy Murphy and Chela Calves also were a part of this team that went to Grenada, Nicaragua, to aid in the mission work of Mitch and Judy Marsh and the local pastors and their churches. While there, Timmy Murphy was hospitalized for a short time, but we were glad to hear that he was up and going in a short time and that he made it home safely. The third mission team going to Nicaragua will leave on Mon day. These teams go in total service to the Lord as they share Christ with the native people in the area of Grenada, while meet ing many of the physical needs of the locals. New Hope Baptist Church has a boys mission study group that is led by Adam Bunch and Scott Henderson. They are known as the Royal Ambas-sadors. These young men chose to do an out standing mission project. They held a scrap metal drive and earned over $2,000. They even decided how the funds were to be divided. They sent $1,000 to Nicaragua to the Marsh ministries to build two homes; $500 was sent to foreign missionaries Shannyn and Elizabeth Bradley, who are stationed in Prague; $500 was given to the Baptist Chil drens Homes; and the remain ing $400 was added to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering which is used for North American missions. Great job! Well done, guys! On Friday the 13th, my son, Joseph, had surgery on his left shoulder. The surgeons thought they were repairing a rotator cuff, but when they opened the site, they found calcified growths on the bones that were removed, taking recovery time from six months to six weeks. Good news for everyone! Fathers Day was also Baby Dedication Day at New Hope Baptist Church. Meg and Danny Moore dedicated their son, Dean Moore, and Ryan and Amanda Abbott dedicated their son, Levi Abbott, with their declarations of faith and godly abilities to raise these youngsters in the grace and admonition of the Lord, with the church body agreeing to stand with and help these young families in their endeavors in the years ahead. Justin and Sommer Worden and children Emily and Ethan, our former youth pastor and his family, pleasantly surprised the church family during the morn ing worship service by being guests while on vacation from their new church home in Al bertsville, Ala. After visiting with family in Naples, they will return to Alabama. Our sympathies and prayers go to the family of Charlie Klin gle now and in the days ahead as he has gone to be with the Lord. Also, Margie Gatesman is having shoulder surgery and Kay Crews is having knee sur gery and would appreciate our prayers for Gods healing during the next few weeks. During our Wednesday evening prayer meeting, I be came totally astounded at how many on the prayer list are vic tims of cancer. It seems that the larger part of health needs were cancer related. Please remember those who are facing this most dreaded of all diseases, and for their caregivers. Until next time, remember, Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord of Hosts, Zechariah 4:6. Its kind of slow as summer officially starts at the end of this week. One sport getting going is the summer competitive swimming. The Hardee Swim Team was small in numbers last Saturday because of graduation and hand only 10 boys and 26 girls. Own Schraeder, Emma Johnson, Ivy Pazzaglia, Lilly Edwards and Carlie Knight won at least one of their events at the meet held in Sebring, with Lake Placid also participating. Some of the events had a dozen to 18 competitors and some as little as three. Participation is from ages 5 (actually 1-6) up to 18. Hardee had only one or two in the high school age levels at this meet. Coach Tracy Pate will have her teams more ready for the next meet. Speaking of swimming, Carl Coleman and his staff are continuing swim lessons mornings for little ones age 18 months and older to tweens who may not have learned to swim at an earlier age. Theres still time to sign up for one of the last two sessions. Stop by the Recreation Center pool off Altman Road north of the high school or call Coleman at 773-3872. Open swimming is afternoons from 2 to 5, weather permitting. Check at the pool for costs to use the pool. Summer Womens Church League and Mens Community Softball is starting. Play is on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the Rec. Complex fields. Again, check with Coleman at 773-3872 for more information. Information from school and community athletic events is always welcome. Please call me at 773-3255 or e-mail me at with news for this biweekly column. Please note that the deadlines for weekday or upcoming events is 5 p.m. Thursdays. For events which happen after that time, sports is due by noon Mondays in order to have any chance of getting in that weeks paper, and is always on a space available basis. Sports UpdateBy Joan Seaman By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-AdvocateIt was a unique experience, even for a seasoned firefighter. A lightning strike about 9:35 p.m. Friday hit the peak of a home on 7053 George Marsh Road, outside Sweetwater and burst a two-foot hole in it. In 41 years of doing this, Ive never seen a blast like that, said Hardee County Fire-Rescue Lt. Don MacGregor. The incident caused a small fire in the peak and underlying roofing. There were no injuries. The home owner, builder Michael Scheipsmeier, was already busy with powder fire extin guishers putting out the fire. Firefighters joined him with a pair of water fire extinguishers and checked with thermal imaging for any hot spots, removing a couple of shingles. They also helped put a tarp over the roof. MacGregor said the incident was unique because it wasnt the highest point. There was a nearby oak tree that was higher. The lightning also did not carry down to the ground or groundout as it normally would. And, it did not continue to burn the home as might be expected once it hit. Fire-Rescue sent an engine and pair of tankers, since it was in a more remote area, as well as Lt. Keith Patterson, who was acting deputy fire chief for the incident. The incident prompted MacGregor to remind people of the dangers of lightning. Stay away from trees or metal structures. It is best to get inside a house or other solid structure. If neces sary, get inside a vehicle with rubber tires that will ground out. But, its best to be inside a build ing, if at all possible, cautioned the fireman. He noted an incident on a beach on the west coast of Florida recently where a man and a woman, walking sepa rately a few feet away from each other, were struck and killed by a lightning bolt on a seemingly clear day. Taking precautions when lightning is in the area, even miles away, is the best way to handle that, he said. Lightning Blasts Home placement can be found.

She is proud to have estab lished Leadership Hardee and a business advocacy committee for the Chamber. She also led a lobbying trip to weigh in on local issues in Tallahassee, redesigned the agencys website and estab lished a social media presence during her time as director.

Casey Dickson informed the Chamber board of her decision on Tuesday morning. Dickson felt it was time for her to try something new but added she does not have any plans in place at this time. She would like to stay working in Hardee County, she said. Before joining the Chamber, Dickson served as a legislative aide to U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan. Dickson said she would be available to assist the board dur ing the transition period while it searches for a new director.

Proverbs 22:6 Letter To The Editor Hardee Elementary Schools Lead Heartland In Math And Reading SPECIAL SOCIAL SECURITY EARNINGS For U.S. veterans under certain circumstances, special earnings from time served in the military from 1940-2001 can be credited to records for Social Security purposes. These extra earnings may enable a person to quality for Social Security or increase the amount of the Social Security benefit. The special extra earnings are granted for periods of active duty or active duty for training. Special extra earnings are not granted for inactive duty training. Veterans should pay close attention to this ruling. Social Secu rity cannot add these extra earnings to any record until that person files for Social Security benefits. The following information only applies to active-duty military service earnings from 1940 through 2001. Heres how the special extra earnings are credited: 1978 through 2001 If enlisted after Sept. 7, 1980, and the individual did not complete at least 24 months of active duty or a full tour of duty, may not be able to receive the additional earnings. Check with Social Security for details. For every $300 in activeduty basic pay, the veteran may be credited with an additional $100 in earnings up to a maximum of $1,200 a year. 1957 through 1977 Veterans are credited with $300 in additional earnings for each calendar quarter to which they received ac tive-duty basic pay. 1940 through 1956 Those who served in the military during this period, including attendance at a service academy, did not pay Social Security taxes. However, Social Security records may be credited with $160 per month in earnings for military service from Sept. 16, 1940, through Dec. 31, 1956, under the following circumstances: of service; or was released because of a disability or injury received in the line of duty; or eran died while on active duty. Individuals cannot receive the credit for these special extra earnings if already receiving a federal benefit based on those same years of service. There is one exception: Those on active duty after 1956 can still get the special earnings for 1951 through 1956, even if receiving a military retirement based on service during that pe riod. SaluteBy Larry PeltonHardee County Veterans ServicesQ: Last winter, under the weight of all the snow and ice we had, one part of my roof gutter busted wide open. We actually heard it: The snow inside it had solidified to ice, and the entire block of ice fell out of the now-open side of the gutter in the middle of the night with a loud crash. It looks like just a hinge on the end of the gutter run busted, though. Do you think I can just fix that hinge portion rather than replace the whole section? Larry in Melrose, Mass. A: You'll need to take a closer look at the gutter section before making that call, so grab a helper and a sturdy ladder, and climb up there -being careful not to set your ladder next to any power lines or other hazards. Gutters will give way or even tear away under extreme stress, like an ice dam forming in or around them. In a way, it's better for them to give way than cause severe damage to your roof eaves. But the damage usually requires the entire section to be replaced. You can patch the gutter temporarily if the end can be re paired (using a bit of wire or a screw to reattach the point that gave way) and the rest of the run is not seriously warped or torn. Make sure there are no leafor debris dams in the gutter run, so that it can drain freely during rainstorms. Once the patch is made, you need to plan on replacing it be fore this coming winter. The gutter section was weakened by the ice dam, and it likely won't drain as well, will collect debris, and won't hold up to another load of snow and ice. You also need to check the roof eaves and soffits near the damaged section. Any damage to these critical roof components needs to be addressed so that water and pests don't get into the house through tears or holes, and so that the area can continue to support your gutter system. You also should consider in stalling gutter covers along the entire run, and look into the feasibility of installing ice and snow guards along the edge of the roof to reduce the chance of ice dams forming in the first place. Do an energy audit of your home (many utility companies offer a lowcost audit or audit kit) to find out where heat may be escaping warm spots near the gutters or roof eaves can cause snow to melt and then refreeze, leading to ice buildup. HOME TIP: A dab of roofing cement can quickly patch small holes in gutter runs, keeping water flowing away from your house until a permanent repair can be made.

Most had cover prices of about 25 cents and included Western, detective and science fiction. I was attracted mostly by the covers, which could be quite lurid. I now have about 200 paperbacks, but have really no idea of how much many of them are worth. Can you help me? Chet, Albuquerque, N.M. A: Colorful, edgy illustrations depicted on paperback book cov ers from the 1940s and '50s are one of the main draws for book collectors. Gary Lovisi, a longtime expert on collectible paper backs, is the author of one of the better guides, "The Antique Trader Collectible Price Guide," published by Krause Books. It features up-to-date values for thousands of the most collectible American mass-marketed paper backs in three grades of condi tion. As with most collectibles, con dition is extremely important. For example, a copy of Richard Foster's "Invisible Man Mur ders" published in 1945 in the Five Star Mystery series, is worth about $60 in excellent to mint condition, and with wear as little as $6. Q: I purchased a factorysealed LP of Aretha Franklin's "Live at Fillmore West." I paid a dollar for it at a thrift store and think I probably got a bar gain. Kirk, Jefferson City, Mo. A: I checked with several used record dealers in St. Louis, Denver and Phoenix, and they seem to agree that your record is worth about $15. In cidentally, it was issued in 2003. A good refer ence is "Goldmine Record Album Price Guide," by Dave Thompson. It has updated prices covering more than 100,000 American vinyl LPs released since 1948. Q: Can you recommend a good reference for baseball cards? Tyler, Fort Smith, Ark. A: There are several baseballcard references but my personal pick is "The Standard Catalogue of Vintage Baseball Cards," pub lished by Krause Books. It covers more than 5,000 sets and cards issued between 1863 and 1980. The book's easy-to-read listings make for quick searches of cards, and prices listed seem to accurately reflect the market place. At $29.99, this almost 700-page reference is a bargain.

June 19, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9A G G r r e e e e n n I I s s t t h h e e N N e e w w B B l l a a c c k k If asked, "What's your favorite veggie?" you might name that in augural vegetable, likely one ofthe first you ever tasted, as thewinner. You know, the one youhad on your plate at least twice aweek growing up: green beans!You might have had them servedcamo green from a can, or neonbright from a bag ... hanging outwith a mix of frozen peas andcarrots. Maybe, if you werelucky, it was a pile of fork-tenderpods just picked from the garden,cooked with a slab of bacon.Whatever their incarnation,green beans hold a place in bothour culinary history and our per sonal memories that is as indeli ble as Wednesday-night meatloafor the annual Thursday Thanks giving feast. It wasn't kale thatMom bought pureed in a small,fat jar and fed you as your firstbites of "real food." It was greenbeans. The thing about green beans is that in this age of kohlrabi,chard, sunchokes and celeriac,they seem so ordinary, maybeeven a little plain. But that's ex actly what we like about greenbeans, especially these days. Ithink we'd all admit it's nice tohave an uncomplicated, straight KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis forward vegetable around. Greenbeans are a simple side that wecan count on when we see it onour plate. With green beans,there are no questions, no sum moning up our courage, becausethey taste like home. Mother knew what she was doing when she served up greenbeans, snap beans or string beanstime after time. Green beans arehigh in dietary fiber and a tastysource of vitamins A and C. Justmake sure not to overcook them.For crisp, tender beans, lightlysteam for a just few minutes toretain their nutrients. In the garden, green beans also are highly desired and very ben eficial. As a member of thelegume family, green beans pro duce their own nitrogen and aresometimes grown by gardenersand farmers to improve soil qual ity. Early Native Americans grewa garden called "Three Sisters,"composed of corn, beans andsquash. The corn provided thestructure on which the beanscould climb, the squash providedshade from the sun to retain soilmoisture, and the beans providednutrients for them all. Of course, when we say green bean we are talking about thepod, not the bean itself. And inthis class of legumes there are many varieties, from the stan dard Kentucky Wonder polebean and the Italian flat bean, tothe haricot verts and wax beans(which are not green at all). Eachtype has its own slightly uniqueflavor and characteristics. While the United States grows more green beans than any othercountry, they also are prevalentin dishes from many cuisinesfrom around the world. Fresh,tender green beans are best inpreparations that allow theirbright flavor and crisp texture toshine, like my recipe for this de licious Green Bean, Tomato,Corn and Sweet Onion Salad. GREEN BEAN SALAD You can make this salad up to 24hours ahead, making it the per fect dish for a busy week or asummertime party.1/4 red onion or sweet onion,sliced thin1/4 European cucumber, cutinto thin sticks resembling theshape and size of green beans1/2 pint grape tomatoes, halved3 tablespoons extra-virginolive oil1/2 lemon, juiced1 teaspoon salt, plus 1 table spoon for salting water1 teaspoon black pepper1 teaspoon poultry seasoning1/4 teaspoon sugar or sugarsubstitute1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper1 pound fresh green beans,washed and trimmed1 cup fresh corn kernels (1 ear)or 1 cup frozen corn kernels 1.

ROACH: Can you tell me why there is somuch emphasis on small por tions for diabetics or predia betics? If you are watchingcarbs and are extremely un derweight, is there still a rea son to limit portion sizes? —C. ANSWER: The majority of people in North America with di abetes and prediabetes are over weight or obese, so limitingportion size makes sense formost people. However, for theminority of people with diabetesor prediabetes with normal orbelow-normal weight, portionsize no longer has the importanceit does in overweight people. A careful diet is important for everyone with diabetes. I wouldbe cautious about the term"carbs," since there are severaldifferent types of carbohydrates.Simple sugars and starches arethe problem for diabetics, sincethey are rapidly converted toblood sugar. However, fruits,vegetables and whole grains aremuch more slowly turned intoblood sugar, and along withhigh-quality protein and healthyfat, form the basis of a healthydiet for everybody — diabeticsand non-diabetics alike. Being underweight with dia betes should raise the possibilityof Type 1 diabetes, which iscaused by autoimmune destruc tion of the cells in the pancreasthat make insulin. Type 1 diabet ics have no or almost no insulin,and absolutely need insulin byinjection. Most people with Type1 are children or adolescents, butit can happen in adults. Type 2 diabetes is caused by resistance to insulin. Most Type2 diabetics have normal or even high levels of insulin. Insulinhelps bring sugar from the bloodinto cells, but it also acts as agrowth hormone. That's one ofthe reasons Type 2 diabetics havetrouble losing weight, since thehigh insulin levels promote fatdeposition. Type 2 diabetes ismore common in adults, but asNorth Americans continue tohave increasing rates of obesity,Type 2 diabetes is showing up atyounger and younger ages. The situation is even more complex than I have made ithere. There are people with ele ments of both Type 1 and 2 dia betes, and even rarer types. Ibelieve Type 1 diabetics shouldbe managed by an endocrinolo gist. Sophisticated blood tests,including insulin, C-peptide andinsulin antibodies, occasionallyare necessary to sort out whatkind of diabetes is present. Diabetes is a serious, lifelong condition that can affect almostevery part of the body.

ROACH: Would someone who has agluten intolerance be able touse psyllium products (Meta mucil) without any problems?What I really want to know is,does psyllium have gluten,since it comes from wheathusks? Thank you for your an swer. —S.S. ANSWER: Psyllium is gluten-free. It is made from thehusks of the Plantago plant, notwheat. Psyllium is an excellentsource of fiber, but should bestarted at a low dose and gradu ally increased to avoid bloating.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.

10A The Herald-Advocate, June 19, 2014 I recently went down to the pay as you go funeral home and made my pre-funeral arrangements. I spoke to a Mr. Greenback, theowner and mortician of the establishment, and asked him quitefrankly, what if I die before I get my bill paid off? He reared hishead back laughing and said, “Don’t worry, pal, you’ll never knowabout it.” We laughed and laughed but to be honest he never an swered my question. I’ll say one thing, Mr. Greenback sure knowshow to make somebody laugh. –––––– Back in the Old West when the sheriff and his posse hung some cattle rustlers they usually played some old Western swing tune. –––––– My cousin Boris was so ugly when he was born they gave him a facelift, and his daddy apologized to the doctor. –––––– What is love? It is many thousands of true emotions wrapped upinto one, however coming unraveled during divorce proceedings. –––––– Billy Willy, my cousin, just told me our cuz Marco had just diedfrom a cold. I asked him how could a head cold kill anybody? Hesaid the doctor told them his nose was so big it was the worst caseof double pneumonia he had seen. –––––– I was afraid it would happen, and now it has. I have recently been notified by the trustees of the bank where I carry the lion’sshare of my financial structure they are no longer a ble to incarcerate my money due to lack of space. I understand several workers haverecently suffered severe ruptures while toting several bags of mymoney. I hope my trade with said bank is not playing a role con cerning the sale of their bank. –––––– It is very difficult for a man to run his wife off. Then in a few days he goes and begs her to come back home, while his eyes areall watering and tearful, looking somewhat like a ca lf in a hail storm. By the way, I’ve done that myself. –––––– I just don’t trust nobody until I catch them being honest. –––––– Years ago when I married Maudene Claudhopper the preacher asked was there anyone there who had any reason why the two ofus should not marry, and Maudene spoke up and said she did. –––––– Back in time if you will to ancient Egypt, sitting there upon his throne be a great pharaoh of his time, who has thousands of soldiersunder his command, who with the tilt of his thumb may have a manexecuted, but with all of this and yet never had a taste of an ice coldCoca Cola. –––––– Throughout time and life, mankind has gone through the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, and now through the Credit Card Age and theBankruptcy Age together. –––––– I believe in giving credit where credit is due. I modestly say if it wasn’t for old-timers like myself funeral homes would probablygo out of business. Jokes & Philosophies With A Little Dab Of Common Sense By Truman A. Thomas APPLY NOW FOR FALL QUOTA PERMITS How many of us hunters are on Facebook? Well, did you know that the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission now hasits own “HuntFlorida” Facebook page? Next time you log in, give us a “like,” so you can stay abreast of the many advertised hunting opportunities and hear about any up coming regulation or quota application changes. And please “share”the page with your hunting buddies too! Speaking of quotas, every hunter knows you have a better chance of catching a monster buck off guard during the first part ofhunting season. That’s why many of us enjoy hunting the archeryand muzzleloading gun seasons — and why we can’t miss openingweekend of the general gun season. After that, multitudinous gunshots often break out, and those mature bucks start feeding mostly at night, making hunting ’em alot more difficult. If you hunt public land, you should know that many of Florida’s wildlife management areas (WMAs) require a quota permit to huntduring archery, muzzleloading gun and all or part of the general gunseason. A quota is the maximum number of hunters allowed on a par ticular WMA. The FWC’s Quota Hunt Program prevents over crowding on such areas and provides quality hunts. Quotas also helpcontrol game harvests. The FWC sets quotas based on an area’s size,habitat, game populations and regulations. There are several types of quota permits, and most are issued by random drawing. This year there’s been a change: The wild hogapplication periods will now be grouped with the other fall quotahunts. The first-phase application period — for archery, muzzleload ing gun, general gun, wild hog, youth, family, track vehicle (aswamp buggy with tank treads), airboat and mobilityimpaired quota hunt permits — runs June 1-30. You may submit one application for each of the hunt types, and there is no fee to apply. One thing to remember though: Unless ex empt, you must have an up-to-date management area permit (or alicense that includes one) when applying for a quota permit, or thesystem won’t accept your application. The FWC offers youth deer hunts on Camp Blanding WMA in Clay County and on Andrews WMA in Levy County. If you havechildren between the ages of 8 and 15 and you want them to have achance to experience one of these great hunts, apply for a youthquota hunt permit, because only 160 kids will get t o participate. Dur ing these hunts, only the youngsters may hunt, and they and theiradult supervisors are the only people allowed on the area. This coming season, there will be family quota hunts on 25 WMAs scattered throughout the state. You must have a family quotahunt permit to hunt these areas during specific time periods. If you are drawn, the permit requires one adult to take one or twoyouths hunting. The adult may not hunt without taking along a kid. If you want to get the jump on one of these hunts, make sure you have the correct quota hunt application worksheet so you canapply for one or more of these great opportunities. All applicationworksheets can be found at by clicking on“Limited Entry/Quota Hunts” and then looking under “QuotaHunts.” Once you’ve completed the application worksheet, you may use it to apply at or submit it to any license agentor tax collector’s office. To find out if you’ve been selected, you can simply log into your customer account at Drawing resultswill be posted after 10 a.m. on July 8. Here’s wishing you luck in drawing one of these great permits! Tony Young is the media relations coordinator for the FWC’s Divi sion of Hunting and Game Management.

He was told by city attorney Gerald Buhr this could not bedone. City manager Jerry Con erly said the city has no moneyto buy the inn, owned by GaryDelatoree and listed for sale at$400,000. Dixon said restorationwould cost $2.2 million. Sam Fite said the inn is in bad shape, has been vandalized andis not worth $300,000, saying,“it would be cheaper to tear itdown and rebuild. My heart is tosave it, but sometimes you haveto cut it loose.” Mayor Tucker also said the city has no money. Buhr said itwould be illegal for the city tobuy and own a building and turnit over to a church. Conerly said the city would soon have a recycling bin forplastic, glass and metal so cityresidents can recycle. The binwill be located behind the fenceat Pyatt Park on West MainStreet. The recycling bin was re quested by Dixon and Barone. The commission told Rev.

Thecity must get a tenant before get ting more of the grant money. City Recreation Committee chairperson Jean Kelly said 20 more U.S. flags will be dis played along Hwy. 17 for theFourth of July.

LINING UP Carter said the end result of reconciling the $7.25 million inexpenses and determining if thecontract was followed would re main the same. He said Continuum Labs and its predecessor company, Life-Sync, made 29 draw requests tothe IDA since the initial contractbegan in October 2011. Carterthen randomly selected seven ofthe draws to review, totaling 42percent of the $7.25 million ingrants the company wasawarded. Board member Donald Samuels took issue with the reviewchanging from an agreed uponprocedure to an examinationwithout board approval. Carter said it was because agreed upon procedures limit thefirm to looking at specific itemswhile an examination wouldallow the firm to render an opin ion of whether the expenseswere valid. He said he would refund the board’s money and terminate hiscompany’s work agreement withthe IDA if the board chose to. Board member Doug Jensen asked how the procedurechanged without the board beingmade aware. Carter accepted responsibility for changing the definition ofthe review, but said it will ac complish the board’s goal. IDA Executive Director Bill Lambert said Carter made himaware of the change. “Mike did tell me we were making the change from anagreed upon procedure to an ex amination,” Lambert said. “I feltlike the objective was to produceany and all information in the re view.” Chairwoman Vanessa Hernandez then said Lambert, IDAattorney Ken Evers and she re cently traveled to Lakeland tomeet with Carter to discuss thechange. Samuels then questioned why Hernandez went to Lakeland forthe meeting. She responded it is not out of line for a board chairman to in quire about an ongoing audit. A motion was then made to formally change the review to anexamination. It was passed with an 8-1 vote, with Samuels votingagainst it. He did clarify he was voting against the motion over the cir cumstances of how it unfolded,and that he did not have a prob lem with changing the definitionif it accomplished the same endresult. Carter will bring back the draft result at the July meeting,and then the board can decide ifit wants to review more than theinitial 25 percent. By MICHAEL KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate The initial review to deter mine Continuum Labs’ compli ance with the terms of itscontract with the IndustrialDevel-opment Authority and toverify its expenses is almostcomplete, according to the ac counting firm conducting thework. Mike Carter, of CliftonLarsonAllen, addressed the board atits meeting last week and said heexpects the review, which wasordered in December, to be fin ished in a week or so. The board had voted to begin reviewing 25 percent of thetransactions and asked Carter todetermine how much it wouldcost to review 50, 75 and 100percent of the company’s trans actions. He said the initial 25 percent review will cost $25,000 andeach additional 25 percent thefirm looked at would be an ad ditional $15,000. He also told the board the re view was now being classifiedas an “examination” in-stead ofthe “agreed upon procedure” theIDA originally ordered. Carterwent on to say the firm wouldnot consent to classify the re view as an agreed upon proce dure due to the scope of thework involved. Continuum Labs Financial Review Nearing Completion IDA Hires Energy Consultant looking to start or move toFlorida. The company would tryto decide which area would bestserve the businesses needs andobjectives before trying to locatethem in a particular area, repre sentatives said. Energy Florida will also as sist in vetting any potential com pany, assessing both thebusiness’s financial situationand the viability of the technol ogy behind the project. IDA Executive Director Bill Lambert said he would like En ergy Florida to start with threeprojects the IDA is working on.He wants the company to look atNational Solar, BioNitrogen andFort Green LNG. Lambert also said any new company seeking funds from theIDA should go through a vettingprocess. The board ultimately decided to approve the consulting agree ment subject to legal review andhave Energy Florida come backwith a quote to begin vetting Na tional Solar. National Solar is aproposed solar farm in easternHardee County that looks un likely to be built at this time. The IDA previously agreed to fund $250,000 towards the proj ect. Lambert said Energy Floridashould review the company todetermine if the project is stillviable so the IDA can determineif it should continue to allocatethe funds for the solar farm. By MICHAEL KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate The Hardee County Industrial Development Authority hasagreed to hire a non-profit con sulting company to help attractand vet energy-related busi nesses to Hardee County. Energy Florida describes it self as an organization that helpsbring energy-related productsand services to market for thestate of Florida and the South eastern United States. Representatives from the company were at the IDA meet ing last week to familiarize theboard with the group and offerhow it could help HardeeCounty with potential energycompanies. Energy Florida’s goal is to “identify and realize opportuni ties to diversify our economicbase and promote new and sus tainable pathways for economicdevelopment in our region andacross the state.” The group also said it can help improve the quality andquantity of businesses seekingassistance from the IDA to lo cate a business here.

In addition to the traditional buckle for first place, this asso ciation awards a saddle to each event winner, resulting in four moretrophy saddles, for boys goat-tying, tie-down roping, ribbon-ropingand as header in the team-roping event. Dawson also took second place in the chute-doggin’ event. And all these wins resulted in him earning the All-Around Cowboy title,and a fifth trophy saddle (his second year in a row). And just this past Saturday, Dawson won the All-Around Juniors Cowboy trophy saddle at the Top Hand Challenge in Myakka City,together with first-place buckles in the Juniors tie-down, breakawayand chute-doggin’ events. He also placed third as header and second as heeler in the teamroping event, where there are no divisions and some of the othercompetitors were as old as 18. He went home to finish packing and grab a few hours of sleep, as he and his family left early the next morning for the Cinch NationalJunior High School Rodeo Association Finals, as well as other rop ing competitions along the way. They will break up the roughly 1,400-mile trip with a stop at the Missouri family ranch of a National Finals Rodeo roper, where Daw son will spend a couple of days practicing. They will then continueon to the Iowa State Fairgrounds for the opening ce remonies and start of competition on Sunday. For the next four days, Dawson will join youth from more than 40 states, Canada and Australia in rodeo competition. He will be competing in five events for two go-rounds. The top 20 in each event then continue on to the short go, from which thewinner will be determined. After the National Junior High Finals, Dawson will also compete in the National Ro-per’s Supply team-roping competition and theRoy Cooper Junior Super Looper roping competition, both held inDecatur, Texas, with the Roy Cooper tie-down roping event beingon the Fourth of July. Last year, Dawson won his division of 12-and-under, but this year he will move up to the 13-15-year-old divi sion. Dawson is taking three horses with him to these competitions. Mudslide, Sister and Tiny are all quarter horses. One of them istrained for his header position in the team roping, and the other twohorses will be used by him for calf roping. This youngster even has his own sponsor, Cactus Ropes and Cac tus Gear. One of the other cowboys they sponsor is Trevor Brazille,through his Relentless line. Brazille is a multi-million-dollar-win ning roping cowboy.Dawson is privileged to work with several NFR ropers. Charles W.“Trae” Adams III of Ona is a frequent visitor to the Cantu arena onpractice nights, and Dawson also spends time roping with JasonHanchey in Okeechobee. In spite of all the time he consumes at roping, Dawson also spends time on his other loves – hog-hunting and fishing. He is the son of Luke and Mandy Cantu, and the grandson of Steve and Leslie Cantu of Zolfo Springs and Jimmy Parker and thelate Carole Parker of Bowling Green.DECISIONContinued From 1A governmental board has the burden of showing that main taining the existing zoning clas sification is in the public’sinterest. 3.) The county and the appli cant (IDA) failed to presentcompetent, substantial evidencesupporting the rezone. In contrast, the document goes on to contend, Terrell, who ownsadjoining land, attended the re zoning hearing and presentedexpert testimony from MaxForgey, a certified planner. Forgey stated his expert opin ion that the industrial park ex pansion failed to meet rezoningrequirements, has the potentialto degrade one or more levels ofservice, and is incompatiblewith surrounding land uses. The property the IDA wishes to use to expand its CommercePark is close to residences andschools, the appeal notes. It goes on to contend “a total 233 acres of industrial uses can not be supported by one two-lane road with one point ofingress and egress to SR 62, it self a two-lane road”; that “im pacts to the community andschools are many — noise, odor,dust, glare, toxic gas, toxicspills, water pollution, illegaldumping and loss of propertyvalues”; and that the “health andsafety of the community and itsschool children are imperiled.” Commercial/Industrial Business Center zoning allows, byspecial exception, the manufac ture and storage of explosives,chemical plants, commercial in cinerators, fertilizer plants andtransmission lines, the documentpoints out. Meanwhile, the plaintiff goes on to assert, “There is no justifi cation offered in the staff reportto show that this rezoning istimely.” Brookes claims the rezoning “is premature,” presents “no vis ible evidence of market pressureto develop this property in thenear term” and “gives every in dication of being a speculativerezoning.” He points to a 610-acre prop erty next to the Vandolah PowerPlant along County Road 663 as“already identified” as a futureindustrial park. “This is theplace where industrial uses(which are not compatible withresidences, families and schoolchildren) should go,” he says. The petition concludes by re stating the request for the courtto throw out the county’s action.‘SHOOTING’Continued From 1A eral months to bring this testscenario together. The exercisewill last about seven hours, frombriefing responders on what willbe happening to the actual“shooting” taking place.

They areboth to be commended for theirhard work and knowledge of thistopic. Gov. Scott, by signing thisinto law agreed,” said Pigman. The original purpose of the bill was to help children with aparticularly difficult strain of pe diatric epilepsy, called Char-lotte’s Web after a 5-year-oldgirl, Charlotte Figi. She had areduction in seizures after takingthe medicinal dose of marijuanaand needed to continue to obtainthe drug without violating thelaw against buying it. Along with SB 1030 is an other one approved Monday bythe governor, SB 1700, whichremoves from public records ac cess any information on peoplewho apply for the medical mar ijuana and their medical need forit. It could be cancer, Parkinson’s Disease, multiple sclero sis or a host of other medicalconditions causing musclespasms and/or seizures, loss ofappeitie and other effects notcontrolled by other medications.At this time, it does not coverthose with HIV/AIDS,Alzheimer’s Disease, dementiaor mental disabilities, includingpost-traumatic stress disorder. A Florida constitutional amendment on the Nov. 4 ballotdiffers. “I am not in favor of the constitutional amendment … formany reasons, including the fail ure to clearly define the medicalconditions that would qualify formarijuana therapy and the fail ure to establish a post-marketingsurveillance program to measuresafety and efficacy of the mari juana therapy. … Senate Bill1030 was, in part, a reasoned re sponse to that ballot initiative,”said Pigman. Marijuana is a drug made from the flowers and leaves inthe plant Cannabis. It may becalled grass, pot, weed, tea,mary jane, sticky icky, kush,ganja, funk, greens, bud or justdope. It comes in various levelsof potency, depending on theamount of THC in it. The man ufacture or sale of it is still ille gal. The approved state legislation sets up a registration for Floridaresidents who need the medicalmarijuana and allows a Floridaphysician to make a recommen dation for the patient’s use of theparticular strain of a low-THCcannabis (marijuana) withoutthe psychoactive ef-fects oflarger or different doses andcreated for certain conditions. Physicians recommending people to the compassion reg istry must have additional train ing in order to prescribe thelow-THC cannabis (marijuana),have a written treatment plan for its use and send that plan to theUniversity of Florida College ofPharmacy, which will monitorthe safety and efficacy of thetherapy. It is to be recommended only for people with intractableseizures or spasms due to canceror a neurologic condition whichhas not responded to other treat ments. It must in-clude consentfrom the patient or his legalguardian to put him on this spe cific program. Being on the “compassionate use registry” will enable the pa tient to purchase the “medicine,”which will be made by five com panies in the state licensed tocultivate, process and dispensethe approved strain of the drug.They are in the four corners ofthe state, with one in the centerof the state. The chemical makeup of the medicinal drug will be strictlycontrolled. They will produce itin a low-THC (less than eightpercent tetrahydrocannabinol)form which would not cause thehallucinations and euphorianteffects of marijuana with higherTHC concentrations. The extract is mixed with an oil and administered orally or bya gastric tube for those not ableto swallow. It is not able to besmoked, injected or ingested inany other form. The new legislation decrimi nalizes the use of marijuana forapproved medical conditions. Itdoes not change the law aboutpossession of marijuana illegallyor driving under the influence ofmarijuana or other drugs. Pos session of up to 20 grams is amisdemeanor; more than that isa felony and can result in up to afive-year prison sentence and$5,000 fine. Production and sale of mari juana is illegal and carries penal ties of arrest, prison and fines,especially if sold within 1,000feet of a child care center, schoolor college, public park, libraryor church. Trafficking in marijuana, es pecially selling marijuana to mi nors is also prohibited, carryinghigher penalties, up to 15 yearsin prison.

Fort Green News 2%&&))*"+ nr Greetings from Fort Green!We had a good Father’s Day sermon at church, and I feelmost churches preach a sermonpertaining to fathers. Our oldestfather is James Williamson, buthe was not able to attend so TomLynn was the next oldest and hewas only 79. I don’t think thatis very old! Each father wasgiven a book about fathers and aHeresy bar. Brother Steve saidthis was filling their spiritualand physical self. Our family went to Nicholas’ in downtown Wauchula for din ner. Sherman’s son Gene,daughter Julie and granddaugh ter Lillie came up for the occa sion. Avie and Allen Eures,Kaylee and T.K. Hogenauer andSherman and I made up the fam ily. We all had a good meal andlots of fun visiting with eachother. Last Monday the youth were scheduled to go to Lake Dentonand help clean up the yard.They worked hard but got tojump into the lake and cool offwhen they got hot. The ones attending were Makayla Chancey, Kaylee Hogen-auer, Kasie Powell, Daniel andTrey Ortiz, and Grey Miller.The adults were Brother Steveand Mrs. Tara, Terrie Miller andFaye Davis. It is always workpulling weeds, but still lots offun. Like any job, when com pleted, you can look at it andfeel a sense of satisfaction. Austin, Dustin and Tyler Smith went to the University ofFlorida for a three-day basket ball course. They enjoyed it andsaid the Gator coach was reallytall. They had a good time andlearned more about the gamethey all love. As soon as school is out lots of youth begin the old saying,“I’m bored; there’s nothing todo.” K-lynn Simpson isn’t say ing that. She is spending twoweeks in Mississippi with herdad. Elizabeth and Kasie Powelltook her to Tallahassee and mether dad there. Ciara Smith had her dance recital over the weekend and dida good job. Carol and Johnnie Brown are home from a vacation. Theystopped and got grandson Aaronand went on to Ten-nessee to seeMathew and family. I under stood John to say he was ridinghis motorcycle in the mountains after they got there. They had agood time Kyle Braxton had a water melon field across from thechurch. There were lots of mel ons still in the field, but I had notseen anyone harvesting them. Icalled to see, and he said he wasgoing to spray them last Satur day. He said we could havesome for VBS for refreshments.Friday morning Aaron Brown,Faye Davis, Austin, Tyler,Dustin and Wesley Smith andSherman and I picked watermel ons. Any work you can make into fun, and Sherman was willing toshow the “boys” how the mel ons were picked in the bygoneera. He said you just stoop overand get the melon and throwover your head to the one catch ing in the trailer. No one wantedto try out this method! We reallyappreciate Kyle letting us havethose melons. We have 30 in theshade behind the fellowshiphall. On our prayer list are Ila Cox, Pat Albritton who is having sur gery and Charlton Sadler alsohaving surgery. Gary Oden isabout finished with his dailytreatments at Moffit. Betty Wa ters, Byron Allison and DoyleBryan are about the same. Wal ter Olliff is in need of prayer ashe has the dreaded “C” word.Please pray for all of these. This Saturday people will gather at the church around 10a.m. to pray for VBS, which be gins June 22 at 5:30 p.m. Theywill be decorating rooms, thefellowship hall and front of thechurch. Then Saturday nightaround 5:30, the youth willgather for a dress rehearsal forthe Youth Program on Sunday.Pizza will be served to the par ticipants I definitely have a spoiled dog. He wants to sit in my lapwhen I type the news. Does notwant that when I am on the com puter for something else. Ofcourse, I could say what a smartdog to know what I am doing! Charles and Lynda Abbott have returned from a visit toBlairsville. They always have awonderful time and the weatherwas so nice. Please pray for our nation and each other.

Hardee County Fire Dept. The City of Bowling Green The City of Wauchula The Town of Zolfo Springs 6:19c withFireworksat duskSaturday, July 5thPioneer Park Zolfo Springs with the musical presentation of “AMERICA ... Of The I Sing” by the Community Mass Choir Led by Tim Davis of Oak Grove Baptist Church Prior to fireworks By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate Nearly a half million dollars in federal and state grant fundshave helped Wauchula plan forits future. Completing petroleum and hazard materials assessmentsand, in at least one case, remedi ation will make it easier to mar ket or promote businesses in thelocal community, commentedJessica Newman, Com-munityRedevelopment Age-ncy/MainStreet director for the city as shemade a report to the WauchulaCity Commission at its June 9meeting. In addition, a historical docu ment evaluation of 121 vacantproperties has been done, givinga brief history of each. The pre liminary report categorizes themby priority, with possible or po tential problems, and includesthe square footage, owner/leaseand other overview informationwhich would be helpful to some one wanting to open a business.The report is available to localrealtors and potential buyers. Seven major projects were completed under the $400,000federal Brownfield grant funds,which were set up to help cities lessen the effects of vacant/-abandoned buildings in theircommunities by clearing any en vironmental issues for a devel oper to be willing to invest inrenovating a property. The project funds began with evaluating possible contamina tion problems and progressed tosoil and groundwater sampling.In one case, additional fundswere obtained for remediation. 226 W. MAIN STREET This project began with a Phase I building inspection andcontinued with the Phase II eval uation of petroleum contamina tion. It located the source to bean old gas tank buried in thecity’s right-of-way in the alley way behind the building. That resulted in additional funding, $55,000 from the Cen tral Florida Regional PlanningCouncil’s federal Brownfieldabatement dollars and $75,000from the state Department ofEnvironment Protection. The tank was removed and area treated for subsoil andgroundwater contamination.Lead and asbestos abatementwere done and the propertybrought up to code. Now, there’s a small tank pumping dissolved oxygen toensure there is no other hazard.It will remain there for at least ayear. There is no hazard in thebuilding as it gets its water fromthe city lines, not the well/-groundwater outside the build ing. The alleyway continues to be a concern for commissioners.Shell placed over the excavatedportion of the alleyway washesaway with the summer rains.The city owns the alleyway as itjogs behind the businessesfronting on Main Street andwhich are a commingled owner ship of business owners and thecity. At present, there are no cityfunds to pave the alleyway. OLD COKER FUEL SITE A Phase I evaluation sug gested further work becausethere had been gas stations onthe corners on the intersection ofMain Street and Eighth Avenue.Phase II of groundwater and soilsampling, using $19,770.72 ingrant funding was completed. The report came up clean, meaning no evidence of contam ination and clearing the way forCRA to resume its plan to builda business innovator there, aplace where small businessescan get a start and eventuallymove out to a larger location. AMERICAN LEGION LOT Before the city agreed to a swap of parking lots with theAmerican Legion, which ownedthe lot at the intersection of U.S.17 and Main Street West, thecity wanted to be sure there wereno environmental concerns. A Phase I evaluation indicated no concerns and the city pur chased the lot, which has sincebeen paved and landscaped aspart of the city downtown park ing project. 101-105 EAST MAIN STREET Federal EPA funds, which were set $200,000 for petroleumcontamination and $200,000 forlead and asbestos evaluation,were used when building inspec tors discovered problems in ren ovating the corner unit of theproperty which covers the entireblock. Already, That Sub Shop at 109 West Main Street has ex panded to the west and the JustFor Women clothing shop re cently opened on the western most corner of that half block. The main efforts now are in getting the units on the corner ofU.S. 17 and West Main Streetrenovated. Hazardous materialsevaluation and sampling haveshown lead-based paint, as bestos and chicken or pigeonpoop (which has hazardouschemicals) in the upper floors.These will be sealed off and un used until remediation can bedone when funds become avail able. Drywall, firewalls, air condi tioning, and restrooms are doneon the lower levels and the ceil ing work and rest of construc tion should be done by the endof summer and be ready for ten ants, reported Newman. OLD SCOTTY’S BUILDING The huge old building mate rial store was to be purchased bythe Hardee County IndustrialDevelopment Authority, whichwanted to be sure it was a good investment. Phase I evaluation,and Phase II sampling for as bestos and lead-based paintcame back clear. “This is a good business pro posal and we were glad to be apart of this,” said Newman. LINDER PROPERTY On U.S. 17 across from the Wal-Mart plaza, this propertywill have city water and sewerand has signed an annexationagreement when it becomescontiguous to city property.EPA approved it as a project ofinterest to the future economicdevelopment for the city. Phase I and Phase II evalua tions were done at a cost ofabout $30,000. Samplings indi cated probable asbestos and lead-based paint contaminationwhich will have to be remedi ated and an approximate cost forthat was set for the developer in terested in the property. CONCRETE With the dual purpose of re moving an eyesore and makinga saleable property, CRA usedthe Brownfield funds for evalu ation at the site at the corner ofU.S. 17 North and PalmettoStreet. Sampling came back clean ex cept for a small corner of as bestos. The majority of theconcrete can be removed andtaken to the Commerce Park fordevelopment projects there. Therest will be abated properly. “I’ll be glad to see it cleaned up. It’s been that way since 1985and I’ve seen it out my windowsince then, “ commented Com missioner Neda Cobb. Newman noted that the eight projects, including the propertyinventory and administrative ex penses have used up the$400,000 allotted. “We’ve made some good part nerships along the way and arein a good position to apply foradditional funds. EPA waspleased with our efforts, espe cially the Linder, Scotty’s andconcrete projects. It helps usmove forward on economic de velopment by lessening the costson potential developers andmaking properties ready foruse,” concluded Newman.

JOEL HUMPHREYS RETIRES PHOTOBY JIM KELLY State Sen. Denise Grimsley and State Rep. Ben Albritton on Tuesday, June 1 0, spoke to the Wauchula Kiwanis Club at Java Cafe about improving foster care i n Florida. Grimsley said there have been 477 deaths in Florida of young children in foster c are in the past five years from abuse and neglect. The deaths occurred after the Florida Depa rtment of Children and Families investigated their domestic circumstances, wrot e Fred Grimm of the Miami Herald. Domestic violence, mental health issues and substanc e abuse by adults led to the deaths in most circumstances. “We need more loving foster families in Florida and Hardee County and more adoptive families,” said Grims ley. Albritton said he went to Tallahassee 3 1/2 years ago with the goals of helping agric ulture and bringing resources to Hardee County but has found and added interest in foster child ren. He said most foster children in Florida receive good care. He helped pass a b ill to make it easier for foster children to make trips and to get a driver’s license. He encourages churches to help foster children. From left are club president Lizette Ortega, Denise Grimsley and Ben Albritton.

4B The Herald-Advocate, June 19, 2014 Q: Can you please tell me when "Witches of East End"will return? Also, do you haveany spoilers for me? —Gina R., via email A: You don't have to wait much longer. The supernaturaldrama that centers on the lives ofthe Beauchamp witches (Joanna,Freya, Ingrid and Wendy) willreturn for a 13-episode secondseason on Wednesday, July 9, at9/8c. I spoke with Eric Winter,who plays thedashing DashGardiner. Atthe end of sea son one, Dashhad his heartbroken byFreya and hispreviously un known warlock powers returnedto him upon the death of hismother, Penelope (played by Vir ginia Madsen). Eric gave mesome hints about season two, themain one being to look for adarker, ticked-off Dash this sea son. "I thought that my brother and I were very underused last year.I'm happy to see that this year weare being used, I think, more cor rectly -you're going to get anice well-rounded cast and inter action of story lines now. Thissecond season, there is a massivechange in character for Dash; hedoes a complete 180. For me,personally, it's a much more ex citing role to play. Last year setsomething up, and it was neededto tell the story, but it played onlong enough, and I'm excited toexplore more of Dash this sea son." Eric also told me about the ad dition of Christian Cooke, asFredrick Beauchamp (Joanna'sson, who until now had been inAsgard): "He definitely brings a nice strong, edgy young energyto the show. There's a bit of ten sion between him and AuntWendy, and also in forming a re lationship with his sisters. It def initely adds a nice additionallayer to that family dynamic --having that male energy thrownin there out of nowhere, whenthey didn't know it existed." Q: Will "Downton Abbey" ever come back? —Hope M., via email A: The popular Masterpiece Classic period drama — whichairs on ITV in England and onPBS in the U.S. — will return fora fifth season in January 2015. Itdoes air first across the pond(which should be sometime thisfall), so try to stay away fromspoilers, if you can, until it airshere in America.
