Just as Sand Mountain in Fort
Meade, was for years, synony-
mous with recreation, fun and
play, Sand Mountain Speedway is
taking on the same characteris-
tics, only this time nationally.
The tall stack of clean white
sand pilled up from phosphate
tailings just west of town, for
years was a drawing card for
folks to come to Fort Meade.
Sand Mountain Speedway is
becoming a nationally known
ATV race track that attracts not
only locals, but national champi-
ons as well.
John Natalie, grand national
ATV champion, featured in maga-
zines, televised on ESPN and
known throughout dirt bike rac-
ing circles, has chosen Sand
Mountain Speedway to complete

worked in his family's cabinet-
making business.
In March of 2003, he complet-
ed officer candidate school and
became a chief'warrant officer.
He then went on to flight school.
Jackson was born and raised
in Sarasota, and graduated from
New Directions High School. He
was an outdoorsman who enjoyed
shooting guns and riding motor-
cycles.
Along with his grandparents,
Jackson is survived by his wife,
Betsy Jackson; two daughters,
Aliah Farley'and Keira Jackson;
his parents, Gary and Susan
Jackson; and two brothers,
Thomas Jackson and Michael
Jackson.

ment, such as' tires, motors,
shocks and everything connected
to championship winning.
The upcoming circuit will
include eight races televised by
ESPN, and 14 GNC races in 28
weeks from California to
Michigan to Florida with many
stops in between those places.
Natalie was available to his
fans to sign autographs and take
pictures at Sand Mountain
Speedway on Jan. 1, and several
times since then. He said he
enjoys meeting people and will be
available again for Fort Meade
fans as his schedule allows him to
come back to the. area.
Matt Bremer, a four-year Class
B rider from Palm Bay, along
with his team and sponsors, have
said that Sand Mountain
Speedway is the best track they
have ridden in Florida' that does
not have national sanctions.

Mountain Speedway, said sanc-
tions would be coming in the near
future.
"So far I have spent a half.a
million dollars," Dierks, who pur-:
chased the 60-acre tract in 1994,
said. "Hurricane Charlie brought
two tornadoes into the area and
wiped us out. We basically had to
start over."
Track design and maintenance
generate most of the expense.
"With 90,000 yards of clay on
the tracks, bulldozer work, loader
work, sprinkler system to keep
the proper level of water on the
dry dusty tracks, it gets spendy"
he said.
Sand Mountain Speedway is a
one-third mile, all-clay, oval
track, built and designed to race
sprint cars. The MX track, or
Motocross track, is an advanced
all-clay, 1.3 mile track. The site

How much control should I ex-

money is hers. She can spend it
as wisely or as foolishly as she
wishes. Controlling your daugh-
ter's use of her money might
keep her from making a mistake
today.
But this will also prevent her
from learning the management
skills that she needs for the fu-
ture. And forcing your daughter
to save teaches her to follow or-
ders, not to develop money man-
agement skills.
Let your daughter learn from
disappointments. Her own expe-
rience is a powerful teacher. She
may have to give up a special ac-
tivity she's been looking forward
to because she spent all her
money on the latest music video.
Don't 'spoil the lesson by pay-
ing for the activity yourself.
Don't scold, or reprimand her
that it was her fault that she
spent all her money.
Let her know you understand
how miserable she feels staying
home. Express hope that another
week she might decide to spend
her money differently.
Throughout life, your daugh-
ter will have to make important
decisions about money.
Here are some ways you can
help her now:
Discuss the difference be-
tween needs and wants. Make
sure her allowance adequately
covers necessary items and
agreed-upon activities. Include a
little extra for savifigs.
Help her open a bank ac-
count and deposit money for
short- and long-term goals.
Teach budgeting skills.
Make a chart. List'days of the

spending to see if she's under or

Encourage saving money.
Let her have the experience of
wanting something without hav-
ing the money to have or do it.
Shell learn she needs to save to
fulfill her wishes.
Involve your daughter in
family financial decisions, such
as choosing a restaurant that
gives the best value for the
money. Include her in long-range
budgeting, too.
Talk with your daughter
about sharing. She can donate
money to a cause that is impor-

Don't make threats or with-

IThe Polk County Democrat

Most community (once a week or twice-a-week) newspa-
pers are delivered by mail and through single-copy sales
from vending inachines-and at retail stores. The Polk
'County Democrat is an exception (as is The Fort Meade
Leader). We have had home delivery since the newspaper
was established in 1931. Initially, the newspaper was deliv-
ered by full-time staff members, sometimes with the assis-
tance of a kid or two. (When cars had running boards, the
youngsters would stand on the running board to throw
papers.) As circulation grew, The Democrat switched to
delivery by a dozen boys on bicycles, (In that era, Florida
law limited newspaper delivery jobs to boys.) Around
1960, delivery was converted to adult drivers again, with
three contract carriers hired, each assisted by two of the
previous bicycle carriers. (As one of the boys ruefully
acknowledged at the time, "We know, you kept the best six
of us.") Over the years, we have expanded to five contract
drivers in Bartow and one in Fort Meade. S. L. Frisbie,

It doesn't happen often.
The word spreads of the unexpected
death of a community leader. The key
word is "unexpected."
So it was Friday when word spread:
throughout B'artow, and Polk County, of
the death of George Harris.
"George Harris? Are you sure?"
Those who know him best say he had
four passions: his family, his community,
his business, and tennis. He died sud-
denly while playing tennis with his per-
sonal trainer.
He was 71, but could have passed for
10 years younger.
There was no gray hair; he began shav-
-: ing his head years ago. It was his trade-
mark.
George.- almost nobody called him
Mr. Harris was majority owner and
CEO of Citrus & Chemical Bank.
Not long after C&C opened, Florida
National Bank, which had been Bartow's
Only bank from the "Bank Holiday" of
1933 until C&C opened in 1954, adver-
tised how many hundreds of years of
Banking experience its staff had. George
and his handful of key executives num-
bered their collective years of experience
at a dozen or so.
What C&C Bank had was George
Harris, and in him, a style of leadership
which few businesses can boast.
C&C was founded in the building in
which Polk County Bank was established.
in 1886. That bank closed in the Great
Depression.
From that modest location, C&C
Moved into the former Publix store on
East Main Street (now the tax collector's
office). '
It then purchased the city ballfield on
North Broadway from the City of
Bartow, and built a bank which would
become headquarters of a countywide
banking group.;
At the time of George's death, C&C
Bank had 10 branches in Polk County,
and was about to announce the opening
of C&C Bank Lending Services, a loan
-.: production office in Hillsborough
County.
Its staff of a few employees boasting a
dozen or so years of combined experi-
ence had grown to 217.
As with any successful business, the
key to C&C's growth and prosperity is
its staff. George recruited and trained
good people, and turned over to them
Sthe day-to-day operations of the bank.
But he kept a hand in the business,
particularly in personnel (human
resources as it is known today) and mar-
keting. Six-figure financial decisions he
entrusted to others, but he stayed


involved in staff and community rela-
tions.
Many businesses boast that their staff
"are like family." George's family includ-
ed' his wife, three children, five grand-
children, and 217 employees.
Turning over day;to-day decisions to
staff means accepting some decisions
that the boss would have made different-
ly. And George was quick to let them
know, and quick to get over it.
"When I made a decision and learned
that George wasn't happy with it, I was
upset for 15 minutes," one key executive
told us. "But after 20 minutes, I knew
everything was okay."
George was not a man to hold a
grudge, or to throw his weight around.
What defined his approach to banking
was his commitment to the communities
his bank served.
He didn't mention it that often, but he,
was committed to returning seven per-
cent of the bank's net earnings to the
community: the arts, education, minority
affairs, and other interests.
Less well known was his personal
financial commitment to people in
needae. He did not give to get his picture
in the newspapers.
George often told his staff and his
*friends that he looked forward to going
to work every morning. Few people are
so fortunate.
George and .l shared a commitment to
local ownership. We often agreed that his
would be the last locally owned banks in
Florida, and ours would be the last local-
ly owned newspapers.
His day typically began at 8;30 in the
morning, and often lasted until mid-
night, when he would leave voicemail
messages for his key employees.
His life ended too soon, in his 71st
year, but he packed 90 or 100 years of liv-
ing into that span.
As the business grew, he moved his
office to Lakeland'. But his heart and his
home remained in Bartow.
His was the definition of a life well
lived. -- S. L. Frisbie, IV

THINKING OUT LOUD / By S. L. FRISBIE, IV

Oldsters Are Healthy (and Funny)


Bartow and Banking


Have Lost a Great Leader


Having just celebrated Bartow's most publicized
65th birthday, I was moved to reflect on the
advances in medical science during my lifetime.
For the most part, things have gotten remarkably
better, but we seem to be determined to find a new
disease (and a prescription drug to cure it) for every
disease that we conquer.
Perhaps the most dramatic advances have been
in heart disease.
When; I was a kid, and you heard somebody had
a heart attack, the whispered
question was: "How long do you
tlhik he has?"
Today, the question general-
ly directed to the patient is:
"How soon will you be back to
work?"- Whispers are no longer
required.
The most remarkable recovery
I have, ever seen was a Bartow
mayor who' had a mild heart
attack on Friday, and attended the
following Monday night's city
commission meeting. Out: of
respect for his privacy, I won't say
who it was, but if you ask Bubba
Smith past Mayor Bubba Smith
- he'll probably tell you.
Perhaps 30 years ago, a Florida
National Guard physician confid-
ed to me that he took an aspirin a
day to ward off heart disease,.but
virtually sore me to secrecy
about his health regimen. Today,
Mary and I are among millions of ',.
Americans who take what is still
commonly called "baby aspirin"
every morning for the same rea-
son; I only hope there is enough ----
stuff on the market to take care of
babies, too. My Gran
Cancer, though frightening, is 65 isn't rea
no longer a death sentence, nor is old. I don't

ical secret. If you don't have a "What do y
friend or two who are cancer sur-
vivors, you need to broaden your
circle of friends.
Hopefully, a cure for Alzheimer's will be medi-
cine's next major victory. Like cancer; itis nd longer
considered a family secret. Dad suffered from it, as
did Mary's mother.
May their souls share in God's everlasting glory.
And then I reflect on my youth.
Measles and mumps and chicken pox were part
of growing up, like skinned knees and twisted
ankles and unrequited love. Today, the first three
are immunization-preventable. That means you can
avoid them with a shot. The latter three will still be

OUR READERS SAY

A Remarkable Person


WINTER HAVEN Those
who have met George Harris will
all agree with me on what an
amazing person he was. He was
one of the most generous and
thoughtful people I have ever
had the privilege, of meeting.
It never mattered what organi-
zation, school, or charity; he was.
always willing to help out and
get the bank involved. He was


always aware of the community
and things going on and it never
failed that if he was in town and
there was an event going on, he
would pop in to make an appear-
ance.
He loved to socialize and have
a good time. Quite the dancer
too.
He always remembered peo-
ple's names and was concerned


with how everyone in the family
was doing. That is who he was.
That is what made him so special.
To his family, my deepest syn-
pathy goes out to you. Ile was
such a remarkable person and I
am so happy to have been able to
call him a friend and neighbor.
He will be missed.

To take their place, we have ADD and ADHD.
Meaning no disrespect to today's youngsters who
are diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder and
its big brother, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity
Disorder, they hadn't given them names when I
was a kid, nor did they have prescription drugs.
I am inclined to think, however, that I had a
touch of both.
ADD was called "not paying attention in class,"
and the remedy was mediocre
grades. I could never understand
why Mother was not pleased
with the number of "SP" grades
on my elementary school report
cards. "Satisfactory Progress"
sounded okay to me, especially
-since I avoided the .dreaded
"NMI," or "Needs Much
Improvement."
ADHD struck me along about
the seventh grade. Only back
Then it was called "talking too
S much in class." The prescribed
treatment was detention hall.
I proudly claim to have been
,. Polk County's first vocational
student. The blackboards at
Bartow Junior High were never
'' ] again as clean as when I scrubbed
.'- them almost daily after class in
the 1952-53 school year. Today,
the custodian's union would file a
grievance against me.
Heartburn is now called Acid

and let's not even talk about
-.- Irritable Bowel Syidrome. I will
I y s s only say that while journalists
d y s s tend to think that cameras should
lly all that be allowed everywhere, there's
know ... it nothing like a colonoscopy every
y old to me. five years to give you cause to
ou think? wonder.
I graduated from Surnmerlhn-:
by-Gosh Institute in 1958. As the
baby of the class, I am the last to turn 65. Fifteen or
20 of us who still live in or near Bartow get togeth-
er every month or so for a luncheon. WIe talk about
grandchildren, Medicare, and our prescriptions.
And we laugh at ourselves tor doing so.''
Laughing at ourselves is the most important
part.
Laughter probably does us more good than the
prescriptions,. the vitamins, and even the baby
aspirin.
But I'm not taking any chances.

- FO A M ^& I-L AL -M OI w %.AN w- or -W


From December through Feb-
ruary, Florida strawberries
dominate the U.S. market.
They're ubiquitous in grocery
stories, packed in plastic con-
tainers. We also find them in
profusion at our local farmers'
markets -just picked, plump,
ruby red and sweet.
"Our first peak in production
is the first week of January,"
Chip Hilton, president of the
Florida Strawberry Growers' As-
sociation, said. "We hit another
peak the last week in February
and the first week of March, but
by then we're competing with
strawberries from California.
For Floridaians, the choice be-
tween a Florida strawberry and
one from California should be a
pretty easy one to make.
Strawberries are among the
most tender and perishable of
fruits, so the best-tasting ones
will probably be those that have
traveled the fewest miles to the
tables.
If you are trying farm-fresh
strawberries for the first time,
you'll be pleasantly surprised at
the sweetness and sharpness of
the flavor.
But supermarket berries are I
tasty, too, especially if shoppers
know what to look for when
making selections.
The biggest berries are not
necessarily the most flavorful
ones, but color is important.
Look for berries that are fully
and deeply red.
Don't choose a berry with
white or green spots in hopes it
will ripen up on a windowsill.
Strawberries stop ripening as
soon as they are picked.
"Be sure the color has spread
from one end of the berry to the


other," Hilton said. "If you can
touch the berries, check to see
that they are firm but not hard.
There should be no obvious mold
or bruised spots. The calyx, the
strawberry's leafy cap, should be
fresh and green."
It's best to eat strawberries on
the same day you buy them. The
sooner you eat them, the sweeter
and firmer they will be..
"Don't wash strawberries un-
til you-are ready to eat them,"
Hinton said. "That's the most
important thing. You do need to
refrigerate strawberries if you're
storing them for any time.
They're not like tomatoes, which
are destroyed by refrigeration."
Florida is the nation's second-
largest producer of strawberries.'
The largest is California. The
Plant City/Dover area in'East
Hillsborough County is the cen-
ter:of Florida's strawberry prod-
cution, but substantial commer-
cial.acreage also can be found in
Alachua, Pasco and Polk coun-
ties.
"The two most common straw-
berry varieties grown in Florida
are Strawberry Festival and
Treasure," Hinton said. "Straw-
berry Festival is a Florida vari-
ety developed at the University
of Florida. It's colorful and good
tasting, and it's medium sized,
which means you really get your
money's worth in a clamshell
container because you are get-
ting more strawberries and less
air.
"Treasure also is a Florida va-
riety.,It has a great taste and
color, and it's ready a little ear-
.lier than Strawberry Festival.
The complementary production
cycle of the two varieties is good
for growers."


By growing both, producers
can extend the season.
Low in calories and free of so-
dium and fat, strawberries are
packed with potassium, fiber, fo-
lic acid and anti-oxidants. Ounce
for ounce, they have more vita-
min C than oranges.
So don't wait for a special oc-
casion to add Florida strawber-
ries to your shopping list.
This winter, take advantage
of the abundance of fresh berries
by including them in everything
from desserts, breakfast treats,
and snacks to savory dishes.
Slice -them over cereal, dip
them in chocolate, mix them into
salsas, toss them into salads, or
try this fun recipe:

Strawberry Fritters
2/3 cup flour
1 pinch salt
1 egg, slightly beaten
: 8 teaspoons beer
4 egg whites, beaten stiff '
28 large Florida strawberries
2 quarts oil
6-1/2 tablespoons Grand Mar-
nier liquor
1/4 cup granulated sugar

Make a batter by combining
the flour with'the salt, egg and
beer. Let the batter rest for at
least two hours, then carefully
fold in the egg whites.
Heat the oil in a deep, fryer
until it reaches 300 degrees.
Wash and dry the strawber-
ries and marinate in the Grand
Marnier and sugar for 1-5 min-
utes.
Dip each in the batter and,
deep fry until golden brown.,
Serves four.

" G-uidance for Grown-Ups


The typical criminal defen-
dant represented by the public
defender's office in the 10th Ju-
dicial Circuit is:
White.
A native of Polk County.
i A school,,drpp-out who quit,
school in the eighth grade at the
age of 16. ,
Unemployed.
"Pretty much unemploy-
able."
"Just about functionally il-
literate."
"Most of them aren't bad peo-
ple," Public Defender Marion
Moorman told the Bartow Ro-
tary Club.
"They made poor judgments.
MMost of them aren't very
bright."
When a defendant is arrested,
he is given a small, '16-page
pamphlet from the public de-
fender's office explaining how
the judicial process works, in-
cluding access to the public de-
fender. The pamphlet, Moorman
said, is written at an eighth-
grade reading level.
"Fifty percent if my clients
cannot read this pamphlet," he
said. Of the half who can't read
at the eighth:grade level, half of
those cannot even read'at the
third grade level, he said._
"Some of them are bad people;
that's a very small percentage of
our people."
His office represents about
30,000 clients a year.
Assistant public defenders
typically carry a caseload of 120
to 150 county court cases or 100
circuit court cases.
Staff turnover is about 20 per-
cent a year.
"We are not able to give the
personal care and attention that
we would like and that our cli-
ents would like," Moorman said.
A staff of investigators and
secretaries gives excellent sup-
port to the lawyers, he said.


Most attorneys in private.
practice charge $5,000 up front
to take on a criminal case, he
said.
"Our job is to be there for
them, to zealously defend them.
Some people have a hard time
with that."
Moorman recalled when his
parents sat in court one day to
watch him defend his first mur-
der case in 1973.
At the end of the day, his
mother told him they would not
return the next day, adding: "We
hope you do a good job, and we
hope you lose."
'I didn't let them down on ei-
ther point," Moorman said.
Only a small percentage of de-
fendants go to trial in Florida, he
said. Most accept plea bargains,
pleading guilty or no contest in
exchange for a sentence less
than they would face if convicted
by a jury.
"That's the way it works," he
said.
Moorman acknowledged that
public perception of plea bar-
gains, cases dismissed for proce-
dural errors, and other opera-
tions of the court system often
draws public criticism.
"The dynamic that changes it
all is if you're involved," he said.
On another topic, Moorman
criticized the practice of sentenc-
ing motorists to jail for driving
with a suspended license, an of-
fense which he said some judges
consider "a serious, mortal
crime."
Typically, motorists lose their
licenses when they don't pay a
speeding ticket, he said.
"These people are not very re-
sponsible," he said. "They don't
pay the fine, they get picked up
again, they go to jail.
"Thousands of days, a year are
spent in the county jail.
"I don't want to pay their


room and board" in jail for mo-
torists picked up for driving
without a license, Moorman said.
He estimated that there are
60,000 motorists driving on Polk
County highways without valid
licenses. ',i *i : i-\
The public defender's office
also provides a brochure to high
school and middle school stu-
dents entitled "The Police Officer
and You." It urges youngsters
who are stopped or arrested by
officers to remain calm, show re-
spect, and avoid threatening
movements or "fighting words."
Moorman blamed the'combat-
ive language of some contempo-
rary music, an attitude rein-
forced by many young people,
with encouraging "bad attitudes
about law enforcement."

A retired special agent for the
Diplomatic Security Service of
the U.S. State Dept. painted a
grim picture of the terrorist
threat against America in a
speech to the Bartow Rotary
Club.
Worley Lee Reed of Winter
Haven said he largely disagrees
with federal policy and activities
on terrorism, making it clear
that he-is not a spokesman for
government agencies.
"We are experts at solving
yesterday's problems," he said.
Federal bureaucracies "move
extremely slow" and are ham-
pered by inter-agency jealousies
and rivalries, he said.
Al Qaeda's objective is world
domination, he said.
"To them, we are the bad
guys, the anti-Christ," in large
part because the U.S. supports
Israel, he said.
The biggest threat comes from
use of weapons of mass destruc-
tion by "militant Islam," he said.
"You cannot negotiate with
these people," Reed said. "You
have two choices: kill them or
capture them.
"Al Qaeda has shown that
they will operate anywhere," and
will attack "shopping malls,
churches, back yards," he said.
"It is not if it will happen


here; it is when it will happen
here."
He .said that martyrs are
taught that they can choose 70
friends and family members to
go to Heaven.
To strengthen defenses
against terrorism, Reed advo-
cates: .
Closing America's borders.
"Accept temporarily limiting
our rights."
.- Strengthening law enforce-
ment and intelligence agencies.
"The vast majority of Ameri-
can Muslims are not the enemy,"
he said.
Ninety percent of the world's
Muslims are poor, and they are
growing in population and
power, he said..
The first line of defense
against terrorism is local law en-
forcement agencies and firefight-
ers, he said.
Reed is president of American
Society for the Support of In'-
jured Survivors of Terrorism. He
said the Labor Dept., the Veter-
ans Administration, and Social
Security provide little assistance
to terrorism survivors.

10th Annual Florida

Rock-Off Competition Set


What started as an event to
showcase original high school
rock bands in the Tampa Bay
area has grown into a large-scale
competition for bands in the en-
tire state.
Reindeer Records, a Portland,
Maine-based independent label
that has produced the annual
Florida Rock-Off competition (
FLARO) in the .Clearwater area
the past nine years, has an-
nounced plans for its 10th an-
nual event with an expansion
statewide. ,.:
SReindeer is inviting original
high school bands from across
the state to sign up' for this
year's event.
The deadline to register is
Feb. 1.
Louis Philippe, who produces
FLARO (as well ,as a similar
event in Maine for more than 20
years), describes the competition
as an in-depth musical triathlon
- the "Survivor" event for local
musicians.
Bands are judged by numer-
ous evaluators, from peers to in-
dustry reps, who rank each band
in many categories for original
material, live showcase perform-
ance, and marketability." -'
"FLARO is an excellent oppor-
tunity for bands to hone their
stage craft, gain media exposure
and plenty of networking oppor-
tunities. The event is designed to
benefit every band whether they


win or not," the Reindeer presi-
dent stated.
FLARO has given the spot-
light to hundreds of musicians
and singled out many for their
abilities and achievements,
Philippe nteid. "There is a suc-
cess in every musician, and it's
awesome to see bands use their
FLARO experience as a spring-
board to bigger aid "better
things."
The winning band receives
$1,000 and the title .of 'Best
Young Band in Florida.": si:.
A series of showcases is sched-
uled the last two weekends in
March at Boomerz, a showcas-
ing/performing venue in Semi-
nole. Five bands will then be se-
lected tb enter the finals, slated
.for Friday, April 23. The live all-
ages showcases are open to the
public,
At last yoar's show, FLARO8 ,
winners Initial Doubt, a popular
band that represented Tarpon,
Dunedin, and East Lake High
Schools, made a guest appear-,
ance before passing the torch of
victory to FLARO9 winners Effu-
sion from Countryside! High
School in Clearwater.

Polk Community College's Oc-

(OTA) program recently received
full accreditation status for 10
years from the Accreditation
Council for Occupational Ther-
apy Education (ACOTE).
In December, the ACOTE
voted to grant a, three-year ex-
tension to the seven-year 'ac-
creditation period previously
awarded ih the spring of 2005.
The program was established
in 1998 to meet the needs for
OTAs in Polk County.
An OTA, working under the
supervision of an occupational
therapist, is responsible for
teaching individuals with physi-
cal or psychosocial conditions
,how to perform self-care activi-
ties. as independently as possi-
ble. Daily tasks: such. as bathing,
dressing, grooming, and cooking
are incorporated into the treat-
ment intervention of each indi-
vidual.
Since its first graduating class
in 2000, the program's graduates
- have had a 100 percent passing
rate on their national certifica-
tion exam. Due to the current
shortage of OTAs nationwide,
graduates are able to readily'
find jobs and earn an average of
$18 to $20' per hour in central
Florida.

Beaware Of A New Computer Seam


Tom Gallagher. Florida's chief
financial officer, today warned
Floridians to protect themselves
from a new scam designed to
steal user names and passwords
to drain online investment ac-
counts.
It is estimated that up to $20
million in stocks, securities and
cash has been stolen nationwide
with this scheme..
Those losses'are expected to
increase dramatically as the
spread of high speed and wire-
less connections nakes it easier
for hackers to steal personal
computer identity information to
gain access to online accounts.
An estimated $1.7 trillion is
invested with online brokerages.
,"The good news is that you
can protect yourself from becom-
ing a victim of these crooks,"
said Gallagher, "but you have to
be proactive. The stakes are very'
high because these thieves can
drain some accounts of hundreds


of thousands of dollars in a mat-
ter of days."
Gallagher added that the key
to stopping these scams is to in-
stall and update computer secu-
rity software. "In fact, many bro-
kers and firms are offering free
and discounted security meas-
ures to their customers," he said.
SComputer crooks reportedly
key iito online accounts by using
a key-logging program or a virus.
If they hack into an account they
can sell some or all of the securi-
ties contained in the account and
direct the brokerage to move
,cash into an account opened un-
der the same name.
The cash can then be moved
to an offshore account that is dif-
ficult to trace. Gallagher said
Floridians can shield themselves
and their portfolios from these
types of computer crimes by:
Installing anti-virus soft-
ware, spyware and firewalls to
their PCs ard wireless routers.


They should ask their broker-
ages if they provide any of these
protections.
Using a password-protected
wireless network connection.
SChanging passwords fre-
quently and making them tough
to crack; never autosave pass-
words.
Not responding to e-mails
that ask the user to verify ac-
count information.
Only accessing accounts
from their own PCs never
from public computers.
Avoiding free downloads
and music thieves often plant
spyware and viruses on these
sites.
Floridians should call their
brokers immediately if they
think they may be victims of this
crime aird call the Department of
Financial Services' consumer
service hotline at 1-800-342-
2762.

Bronson Advises

, For Health Club


---


Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is urging
consumers to get some back-
ground information onI health
clubs prior to signing a contract.'
'Many 'people "put losing'
weight and getting into shape at
the top of their New Year's to-do
list, but unless they do some re-
search in advance, the only thing
they may lose is money. State
law provides some protections
for consumers, and they should
be aware of what those are.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Serv-
ices administers the Health Stu-
dio Law, which spells out the
rights and responsibilities of the
gyms and consumers.
It also provides some recourse
against health clubs that do not
follow the law.
All health clubs are required
to register with the Depart-
ment's Division of Consumer
Services and many must also
post a bond that can be used to
repay members if the facility
goes out of business.
In 2005, the Department col-
lected $67,000 in fines against
health clubs for various viola-
tions of the law, including regis-
tration problems and advertis-
ing.
There are 1,720 health stu-
dios registered with the depart-
ment, an increase of 379 over
last year; 149 clubs went out of
business over the same time pe-
riod.
"Joining a health club can be
a positive but costly endeavor,
and it's important that people
know as much as possible about
a particular facility before enter-
ing into a contract," Bronson
said.
"They need to know exactly
what they are getting for their

money and what steps they can
take to seek redress if something
goes wrong."
The law provides consumers
with the right to cancel a con-
tract for certain reasons includ-
'ihg:' cancellation within three
days of signing a contract, exclu-
sive of holidays and weekends,
but it must be done in writing; if
the facility moves more than five
miles away from the original lo-
cation and fails, to provide,
within 30 days, a facility of equal
quality located within five miles;
if a person becomes physically
unable to use most of the serv-
ices for which they contracted,
until the disability ends.
Bronson also recommends
consumers follow these tips be-
fore signing a contract:
Call the department's
helpline at 1-800-435-735 to
make sure the health studio is
registered and to check its com-
plaint history.
Find out if the studio has
posted a bond with the depart-:
ment, as most that collect fees in
advance, are required to do.
Prior to joining, ask about
the club's cancellation policy in
case of moving or becoming
physically unable to use the fa-
cility.
Before signing up, visit the
club during the hours of in-
tended use to determine
whether it is overcrowded and
the needed equipment is avail-
able.
Find out if any of the serv-
ices offered require an additional,
fee.
Bronson said it is important
to read proposed contracts thor-
oughly and make sure you get all
promises made by club personnel
in writing. Ask questions to
make sure you understand the
terms of your membership.

UF surgeons and pediatric
cardiologists have joined forces
to establish the UF Children's
Heart Center, a move officials
say will improve care for both
children and adults born with
complex cardiac conditions.
The center will provide coordi-
nated care to patients with con-
genital heart disease at UF -
from diagnosis to treatments
that incorporate medical and
surgical management and fol-
low-up.
With more than $3 million in
funding from Shands at UF, the
UF College of Medicine and Chil-
dren's Medical Services, the cen-
ter represents a major new in-
vestment in pediatric cardiology
and congenital heart surgery
programs and unites the exper-
tise of specialists in pediatric
cardiology, invasive electrophysi-
ology, cardiac imaging and inter-
vIational procedures, heart
transplantation, congenital
heart surgery, nursing and more.
Cardiac surgeon Dr. Mark
Bleiweis, former director of the
Children's Heart Institute at the
Children's Hospital of Orange
County in California, is heading
the center.
"Our center will be able to
provide care for the entire spec-
trum of congenital heart disease.
from the smallest premature
newborn to the adult with con-
genital heart disease, which
would include complete repair of
very complex heart problems to
heart transplantation if neces-
sary," Bleiweis said.
Approximately 225.000 babies
are born in Florida even year.
Of those, about one of every
150 newborns has some form of
congenital heart disease, includ-
ing structural problems of the
heart and its vessels, and heart
rhythm abnormalities.
"The approach to care pro-.
vided through this center will
enable even the most complex
patient to be cared for by UF
physicians," said Dr. Barry-
Byrne, professor and associate
chairman of pediatrics and a pe-.
diatric cardiologist whose re-
search focuses on developing ge-
netic therapies for cardiovascu-
lar disease..
Dr. Terry Flotte, chairman of


.Often called "The Silent Kil-
ler,". carbon monoxide (CO) is an
invisible, odorless, colorless gas
created when fuels burn incom-
pletely.
Almost anything in your home
that gives off heat by burning
fuel (gasoline, wood, coal, natu-
ral gas, propane, oil, and meth-
ane) could potentially put off
variable levels of CO.
Homes should be equipped
with carbon monoxide alarms de-
signed to provide an early warn-
ing of accumulated levels of CO
in your home.
These alarms should. be in-
stalled in a central location out-
side of each sleeping area. Resi-
dents should know the difference
between the sounds of the two
alarms.
Carbon monoxide alarms are
not intended to replace smoke
alarms.
CO alarms should be tested at
least once a month,'and replace
them according to the manufac-
turer's instructions.
Also, the National Fire Pro-
tection Association recommends
that if you need to warm a veli-
cle, remove it from the garage
immediately after starting it.
Do not run a vehicle, gen-
erator, or other fueled engine or
motor indoors, even if the garage
doors are open.
Have fuel-burning house-
hold heating equipment and
chimney inspected by a profes-
sional every year before cold
weather sets in.
When using a fireplace,
open the flue for adequate venti-
lation, and never use your oven
to heat your home.
Here are some things to re-
member in the event your CO
alarm should sound:
If it is a battery-powered in-
termittent alarm, check the bat-
tery.
If it is a steady alarm or you
are unable to determine, evacu-
ate the dwelling. Do not re-enter
until the responding agency says

pediatrics on the Gainesville
campus, said the center repre-
sents "a modern model," and
called Bleiweis "a very gifted
surgeon and somebody who has
a very positive approach to this
integration of care between the
different disciplines.
"We're extremely enthusiastic
about his ability to make this
program-successful," Flotte said.
Bleiweis also is an associate
professor of surgery and pediat-
rics at UFs College of Medicine.
While in California,;he intro-
duced new programs such as the
comprehensive treatment for hy-
poplastic left heart syndrome
and completed complex cardiac
repairs in very small babies, in-
cluding a premature neonate
weighing less than three pounds.
As more children with con-
genital heart disease survive
longer, pediatric cardiologists
are increasingly overseeing their
care well into adulthood.
In fact, in the United States,
there are now more adults than
children living with congenital
heart disease.
In addition, these physicians
also are caring for adults with
previously untreated congenital
heart diseases. These patients
have their own unique set of
problems.
-We do have a large popula-
tion of adults with congenital
heart disease," Byrne said. "For
the most part, those patients are
cared for by pediatric cardiolo-
gists. It's an emerging specialty
within pediatric cardiology."
The center will seek to recruit
additional faculty and personnel,
including a Shands Children's
Hospital pediatric cardiac anes-
thesiologist, an additional car-
diac surgeon, a congenital heart
surgery nurse practitioner and a
research coordinator. In addi-
tion. six intermediate-care pedi-
atric beds in the pediatric inten-
sive care unit on the 10th floor of
Shands at UF will be upgraded
to pediatric intensive care unit
Sbeds.
The intermediate care beds
will revert back to a fourth-floor
unit, where they were previously
located.
Hospital officials also antici-
pate dedicating an operating


it is okay.
Report the CO alarm warn-
ing by calling the appropriate
phone number.
Call a qualified technician
to inspect all equipment.
Symptoms of CO poisoning
are severe headache, dizziness,
mental confusion, nausea, or
faintness. Many of these symp-
toms are similar to the flu, food
poisoning or other illnesses.

room and a cardiac perfusion
team to pediatric cardiac cases.
The UF College of Medicine
faculty in Jacksonville has for a
number of years teamed with
Wolfson Children's Hospital to
provide advanced pediatric car-
diology care and cardiac surgery
to patients in the region and will
work with the center to offer a
seamless set of services.
"UF and Wolfson Children's
Hospital have worked together
traditionally in many ways and
are helping to coordinate the
care of these patients," Flotte
said.
"They do have a joint cardiac
catheterization conference and
use a lot of teleconferencing and
telemedicine technology to mak
the relationship work."
The center will draw patients
from the primary referral area
of south Georgia, the Panhandle
east to Jacksonville, the Space
Coast south to Melbourne and
West Palm Beach, and the Gulf
Coast south to Ocala.
Many cardiac services are pro-
vided by UF physicians in
Gainesville and Jacksonville, but
each locale also has its areas of
emphasis.
In Gainesville, for example,
faculty have special expertise in
heart transplantation and car-
diac magnetic resonance imag-
ing, while those in Jacksonville
are particularly noted for pediat-
ric cardiac electrophysiology.
Both campuses have strong
programs in echocardiography
and catheter-based interven-
tional procedures. Patient care
also will be bolstered by a range
of clinical and basic science re-
search programs, particularly ef-
forts focused on the study of car-
diomyopathies.
UF physicians, for example,
can review echocardiograms sent
to them by community physi-
cians around the state, and if
they are normal, patients who
otherwise would have had to
travel to be seen can save the
trip, said Dr. Thomas Chiu, a.
professor and chairman of the
department of pediatrics on the
Jacksonville campus.
With the recent addition of a
new surgeon to the Jacksonville
campus, Chiu added, officials
also hope to, double the number
of open-heart surgeries per-
formed annually.
Dr. William Cance, a profes-
sor and chairman of the depart-
ment of surgery in Gainesville,
called the development of a mul-
tidisciplinary center of excel-
lence with a team of physicians
from multiple specialties "a criti-
cal step to provide the best care
to children with heart disease."
Flotte said, "As much as we're
excited about the growth in pa-
'tient volume and high-tech de-
velopments associated with this
new center, the bottom line is
we're very confident this will let
us give better care to our pa-
tients, to kids who'are born with
congenital heart disease in the.
region."
