Zoning Issues Dominate


City Commission Agenda


Nine zoning and land use ordi-
nances several of them contro-
versial will come up for consid-
eration by the Bartow City
Commission tonight.
Included are two subdivisions
in the Connersville community
that would be built with septic
tanks because the city does not
have sanitary sewer lines in the
area; rezoning of a small parcel of
land on East Hooker Street to
permit duplexes; and rezoning of
a small parcel owned by the city's
planning director to permit
smaller lots and homes than
presently would be allowed on the
site.
Also coming before the com-
mission will be a proposed 324.5-
acre "master planned communi-
ty" on reclaimed phosphate land
on State Road 60 West, and
approval of "mixed use develop-
ment" on 897.1 acres of the
C. Wilson Ranch property north
of town.
Two ordinances will come up
for action on first reading, and
seven will be the subject of public
hearings as they are considered
on second (final) reading.
The commission will hold a
work session at 5:30 p.m. at City
Hall, and will reconvene for its
regular business meeting at 6:30.
One ordinance coming up for
the first time would assign
"planned development" zoning
324.5 acres on SR 60 being devel-
oped by John Hutto's develop-


ment company,. Nustar
Enterprises.
As presented to the zoning
board last week, the development
would have up to 600 homes on
166 acres, of which 200 or more
would be town houses, and the
balance single-family residences.
Hutto said the town houses would
be priced at $170,000 to
$175,000, and the detached
homes at $185,000 to $250,000.
Sixty-one acres would be des-
ignated for commercial develop-
.ment, and 97.5 acres, much of it
in wetlands and lakes, would be
designated as recreation and
open space.
The zoning board voted unani-
nmously to approve the rezoning,
with the condition that pur-
chasers be notified that the prop-
erty is next to an industrial park
and a motocross park.
The other ordinance on first
reading would downgrade zoning
from R-1-A to R-1 on a parcel of
1.95 acres owned by Planning
Dir. Robert Wiegers and his wife
to allow eight homes on the site.
Under present zoning. six homes
would be allowed. The property is
located at Mann Road and
Kissengen Avenue, just north of
the Catholic Church.
The zoning board voted 3-to-2
to deny the rezoning request after
hearing protests from neighbors.
Ordinances to be considered
for final passage after public
hearings would:


Rezone four-tenths of an acre
on East Hooker Street from R-l-A
(single family residential to R-2
(duplexes), and changing the land
use from low density residential
to medium density residential.
Rezone 13 acres of land in
the planned Silver Companies
development on U.S. Highway 98
North to allow another commer-
cial parcel in the development.
Allow "low density residen-
tial" development on two adjacent
parcels of land in Connersville.
Both would have homes with sep-
tic tanks.
Establish a new "mixed use"
zoning category and revise the
criteria for "on-site sewage dis-
posal systems."
Assign "mixed use" to the
C. Wilson Ranch property to
allow 1,350 homes on 337.7 acres,
37.5 acres of commercial use. and
521.9 acres of recreation, open
space, and conservation lands.
Approve a 72.5-acre
"planned development" in
Connersville to allow 172 homes
on septic tanks.
Also on the agenda:
A presentation by Roger
Fontes of the Florida Municipal
Power Agenc,.
Discussion of h:ow to fill a
vacancy on the Bartow Housing
Authority
An appointment to: the water
conservation committee
A public hearing on an
amendment to the cit\ budget

-Jim and Kae Eason grow their
strawberries in stacks of foam,
not in mounds of dirt Their KJ
Hydro Farms offers hydroponical-
lyi-rown strawberries, vegetables
and herbs at its location on
Count, Road 640, just east of
U.S. Highway 17.
Strawberries are planted in a
50-50 mix of .'ermiculite and per-
lite. A volcanic glass, perlite
replaces soil as a host for the
roots. Vermiculite absorbs 98 per-
cent of its volume in water and
nutrients. Each foam stack has
five sections, each with four
plants. The stacks are arranged
in rows along the feeding and
watering pipes. A dispersing
agent in the top of each stack
evens out the flow of water and
nutrients.
Plants are fed three times a
day, one quart for each stack. Jim
Eason said he feeds their 16,000
strawberry plants 1,300 gallons
of nutrients and water each day,
versus the many more thousands
it' would take if they were planted
in the ground.
The Easons also grow collards.
onions, tomatoes, cabbage, hot
and sweet peppers, eggplant,
lemon balm, sweet basil, cinna-:
mon basil, pomelo and blueber-
ries, Kae E'son said. Broccoli has
already be. harvested, and the
blueberries won't be ready until
the last of March or first of April.
This is their first year growing
strawberries hydroponically, but
the Easons have grown blueber-
ries in pine bark since 1999.



If you go . .

Take U.S. Highway 17 to
the traffic light at County
Road 640 in Homeland. Turn
east. KJ Hydro Farms will
be on the right, one-tenth of
a mile from the intersection.
Look for the white and red
signs and turn right on a dirt
driveway which takes you to
the farm. Phone numbers
are 581-3965 or 519-9677.


Not only are the fruits and veg-:
etables free of dirt, they're free of
harsh chemical pesticides and
insecticides. Ladybugs and
cayen ne pepper spray help keep
the pests in check. Other bio-con-
trol agents include good mites
that eat the bad ones, such as the
two-spotted tiger mite which is
tough on strawberries, Jim Eason
explained. He also uses organic
applications of fungicides and
pesticides.
One visitor to the farm told
Mrs. Eason that even the bees
were friendly there.
Another produce buyer was
happy not to have to wash the col-
lards as many times as soil-grown
greens.
"You can run them through one
bath and they're clean." Mrs.
Eason said.
You-pick strawberries are $3 a
pound -- with no bending, no
kneeling and no getting dirty. If
the Easons pick them for the
buyer, the berries are $3.50 a
pound.
Buyers may call ahead, espe-
cially if they need large quanti-
ties. The farm is open Tuesday
through Saturday from 9 a.m. to
5 p.m., Sunday from 11 a.m. to
3:30 p.m., and closed on
Monday.
KJ Hydro Farms is at 1081
CR 640, one-tenth of a mile
east of US 17, on the south
side of the road. For infor-

'Watching' For the Dawn of a New Day


By CLIFTON) P. LEWIS

This article was written in re-
sponse to the question regarding
the meaning of the widely-cele-
brated tradition called "Watch
Night."
The first Watch Meeting oc-
curred on Dec. 31, 1862. That
was a time when people of good-
will came together to await
President Abraham Lincoln's
signing of the historic Emancipa-
tion Proclamation, which he is-
sued the following day, Jan. 1,
1863.
In describing the mood of the
crowd 20 years later, Frederick
Douglass wrote:
"We were waiting and listen-

ing as for a bolt from the sky,
which would rend the fetters of
four millions of slaves. We were
watching, as it were, for the
dawn of a new day remember-
ing those in bonds as bound with
them, we wanted to shout for
freedom and sing in the anthem
of the redeemed."
This is how Douglass de-
scribed that night. Another eye-
witness suggested that the
Emancipation Proclamation
struck the nation "like a thun-
derbolt from a cloudless sky."
And, in response to the many
technical questions that later
arose, Douglass said of the freed
men and women, "It was not
logic they cared about, but the


trump of jubilee."
There are a number of long-
standing celebrations relating to
the Emancipation Proclamation.
Some take the form of picnics,
complete with gaiety and games,
but the Watch Night Service is
almost always associated with,
some form of solemn church ac-
tivities.
It is'important that we under-
stand these types of traditions.
Dr. Carter G. Woodson
warned that. "If a race has ; o
history, if it has no worthwhile
traditions, it will become a negli-
gible factor in the thought of the
world, and one day it may cease'
to exist."

AOL. Offers Settlement To Residents As Christmas Gift Idea


Attorney General Charlie
Crist announced that his office
has reached an agreement with
America Online, resolving con-
sumer complaints about billing
issues and membership charges.
In addition to making con-
sumer restitution, the company
has agreed to forgive consumer
debts stemming from the issues
involved in Crist's investigation.
Crist's Economic Crimes Divi-
sion began investigating the
Internet provider in September
2005 after receiving more than
1,000 consumer complaints.
The investigation focused on
several areas, including con-
sumer complaints that cancella-


tion requests were not honored,
former accounts were reacti-
vated without consumers'
authorization, charges were im-
posed for "spin-off accounts," and
consumers were being mistak-
enly billed for AOL services on
their phone bills.
AOL assisted investigators in
identifying numerous consumers
who were harmed by these prac-
tices.
Under the agreement, AOL
will pay consumer restitution or
otherwise forgive outstanding
balances to consumers identified
during the course of the investi-
gation as having been poten-
tially affected by AOL consultant


misconduct, as well as to con-
sumers who have filed com-.
plaints with the Florida Attor-
ney General's Office prior to or
during the investigation.
In addition to providing resti-
tution to these consumers, AOL
has agreed to provide refunds,
credits and debt forgiveness to
all eligible Florida consumers
who file a complaint with the
company.
Consumers also are encour-
aged to file claims with Crist's
office, and can obtain a claim
form by clicking on the AOL Set-
tlement icon on the Attorney
General's website at www.my-

PCC Receives $2 Million Grant


Polk Community College has
been awarded a $2 million fed-
eral grant for workforce projects
in healthcare.
The mony came from the
Agency for Workforce Innova-
tion.
The agency announced today
that PCC is among four Florida
community colleges that have re-
ceived a total of $7.2 million
Community Based Job Training
Grants from the U.S. Depart-
ment of Labor.
"The Community Based Job
Training Grants represent stra-
tegic investments that target
* specific industry sectors within
each' community and will add to
the success of Florida's work-
force as a whole," said Linda H.
South, director of the agency for
workforce innovation. "We are


proud of the broad partnerships
within the four communities
that successfully competed for
these awards."
'"PCC plans to partner with
the Polk County School District
to create and sustain a pipeline
into the healthcare profession,"
PCC President Eileen Holden
said. "The focus of this grant will
be on cardiovascular tech train-
,ing to meet the workforce needs
of our area hospitals. We already
have a strong relationship with
our hospital partners and this
grant will serve to strengthen
those ties."
Nationwide, 72 community
college partnerships were
awarded a total of $125 million
for successfully competing under
the President's Community-
Based Job Training Grants ini-


tiative.
The grants work to
strengthen the role of commu-
nity colleges.in promoting work-
force's full potential. The grants
are employer-focused and build
on the President's High Growth
Job Training. Initiative, a na-
tional model for demand-driven
workforce' development imple-
mented by strategic partner-
ships between the workforce in-
vestment system, employers,
and community colleges and
other training providers.
The primary purpose of the
CBJTG grants is to build the ca-
pacity of community colleges to
train workers to develop the
skills required to succeed in high
growth/high demand industries,

Florida retailers run a tight
ship when it comes to the accu-
racy of their pricing scanners,
according to a just-concluded
statewide scanner survey con-
ducted by Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson's of-
fice.
The annual pre-holiday sur-
vey, which involved 50 stores in
25 cities and was conducted last
week, found that 98 percent of
the 2,625 items tested scanned
accurately.
Among the 57 pricing errors,
more were in the. customers', fa-
vor than in the stores'.
"Our retailers do an excellent
job keeping up with prices, espe-
cially sales prices which fre-
quently change, and inputting
accurate information into their
Equipment to reflect the actual
price of the merchandise that
they're selling," Bronson said.
Only six of the 50 stores vis-
ited failed their inspection,
which requires an accuracy rate
of 98 percent.
Three failed for excessive
overcharges, and three others for
too many undercharges.
In all of those cases, inspec-
tors have placed the businesses
on a higher inspection frequency
in the future. Many of the retail-

ers had no errors whatsoever.
While scanning errors are
relatively uncommon, mistakes
do occur. It means that consum-
ers need to be aware of the price:
that they should be charged,
Bronson said.
For example, among errors
detected during last week's
sweep was a $14.50 overcharge
for a sweater at a Tallahassee
department store.
The error and all others found
during the visits were immedi-
ately corrected by store manage-
ment when they were informed
of them.
"The important thing is to
know the price of the item that
you're buying, make sure that's
what you're charged at the
checkout line and keep receipts,"
Bronson said. "If there is any
discrepancy, bring it to the at-
tention of store personnel."
Bronson's Division of Stan-
dards tests checkout scanners,
as well as most other devices
that sell products by weight or
measure.
Consumers who believe that
they have been overcharged, or
who detect problems with a
store's scales, are encouraged to
call the Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services at
1-800-HELPFLA (1-800-435-

This time of year, it would be
especially tragic to lose a loved'

Unfortunately, all too often,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission

boating accidents which result in
drowning deaths, during the
holidays as well as throughout
the year.
. The death of her son, just
prior to the Christmas holiday,
was how Gay Kite became in-
volved with FWC.
Gay Kite said her son, John,
was someone who loved the out-
doors and was a good swimmer.
John and a friend, Allan Morone,
died while boating on Half Moon
Lake, near Ocala, Dec. 19, 2004.
FWC investigated their deaths.
"I worried about him driving
his motorcycle,".Kite said.
John Kite and Morone were
testing a new boat motor, which
may have been too large for their
small johnboat when they tried
it out on the lake near Kite's
home. .
Investigators suspect water
came over the stern and flooded
the vessel. Neither of the men
was wearing a life jacket

Polk Principal
Honored By
State For Gains
The Florida State Board of.
Education honored middle school
principals who improved their
school's grade by two or more let-
ter grades this past school year.
Since 1999, when the A+ Plan
for Education was implemented,
schools have improved from only
515 schools earning an "A" or "B"
to 2,077 schools in 2006 four
times the number of high-per-
forming schools seven years ago
and 234 more than last year (up
from 1,843).
Three of every four Florida
schools were considered high
performing in 2006.
Among those recognized was
John Barber, principal of Lake
Gibson Middle School, which
jumped two letter grades from a
"C" to an "A" this year.
"These principals are role
models for their peers," said
Florida State Board of Education
Chairman Philip Handy. "The
State Board of Education is
proud of their work and intends
to honor other such principals

Once again society is wringing its hands
Over how to make the administration of
-. the death penalty as convenient and com-
i; fortable as possible for those felons con-
victed of the most heinous crimes against
Humanity.
We cannot get caught up in the fervor.
We support the death penalty. We
.j believe there are some crimes so heinous
i' that nothing less will satisfy the public's
Demand for justice. The availability of the
: death 'penalty after years and years of
Appeals and reviews is clearly a better
Sway of carrying out justice than the lynch-
: ings of yesteryear.
We respect those who say that the taking
gH of a human life by the state under any cir-
cumstances is wrong.
There is no way to resolve that dichoto-
my, and we rely on our Legislature, our
: governor, and the courts to establish pub-
:F lic policy on this matter and to insure that
in those states which allow capital punish-
ment, it is reserved for the worst of the
worst and carried out humanely.
"Humanely," we. suggest, does not
require an execution that is an idyllic pas-
sage into the hereafter. A government
which does few things flawlessly cannot
be expected to make capital punishment a
pleasant experience. With all due respect
to the profession of dentistry, medical sci-
ence has not yet made root canals or den-
-;. tal implants a pleasant experience.
The days of public hangings in the town
square are history; drawing and quarter-
;ing is dearly an affront to humanity.
But those few criminals whose crimes
are deemed so heinous as to require that
.' they be put to death, following inter-
minable appeals, are less deserving of our
: concern than their victims.
In the execution of Angel Diaz last
week, it took a second injection of lethal
chemicals to caus e his death


nessed the execution reported that the cc
demned prisoner "appeared to be speak
ing, it was my observation that he was
pain. His face was contorted, and he g
maced on several occasions. His Adan
apple bobbed up and down continual
and his jaw was clenched."
In an imperfect world, his was an imp
fect execution.
In that same imperfect world, Dia
according to the findings of',a jury, to
part in the robbery and murder of a I
manager in 1979.
It has not been reported.how painfu
Joseph Nagy died from a gunshot wou
to the chest.
Perhaps he :grimaced; perhaps
Adam's apple bobbed up and down; p
haps his jaw was clenched. Because
execution by Diaz and an accomplice w
not conducted in the presence of state w
nesses under the sterile conditions ol
lawful imposition of the death pena
such details are unavailable.
Imposition of the death penalty shot
be humane, yes, but let's not lose sight
the conditions under which the victim
died in comparison to the methods unc
which their murderers are put to death.
We suggest that our compassion shot
be reserved for the victims.

The presence in my office of
Derek and David Dunn-Rankin,
,the top two folks at Sun Coast,
and their CFO, Alan Walrond, at
the start of the' meeting pretty
vell gave away its purpose.
But somehow the words: "My
friends, the company has been
sold," triggered a pretty emotion-
al response. It was Kleenex time.
My immediate assurance that
our 42-page contract with Sun
Coast guaranteed that each
Frisbie Publishing employee
would be hired by Sun Coast, at
their existing salary, with seniori-
ty dating back to their date of hire
by us, may have been comforting,
but it did not reduce the emotion
of the moment..
I told the staff that in addition
to the 42-page contract, I had
shaken hands on the deal with
Derek and David, and that the
handshake was more binding on
both them and us than the con-,
tract. Both of them nodded in
agreement.
David tells me that he has been
surprised by how excited the 580
or so employees of Sun Coast are
over the acquisition.
"By announcing an investment
in the community newspaper
business, it helped validate to our
existing employees our mission
of civic involvement and making
our communities a better place,"
he wrote me.

announcement helped crystallize

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Christmas Without Dad


(This is another guest column
written by Greg Wheelus, a friend of
Pat Sims.)
Christmas for me this year is a
time of reflection 'filled with
memories, of good times, of chil-
dren and parents and grandpar-
ents, of decorated trees and fami-
ly dinners.
When I was little, someone
said that in the future every man
would be able to have 10 minutes
of fame. Last week, Pat Sims was
gracious enough to allow me to
be a guest columnist in her place
in your paper.
The person of my memories
was correct. Reading my name
over an article in the newspaper
was a wonderful feeling. What a
great Christmas present. Thank
you Pat.
Like a little boy, all enthused, I
wanted to run and show the arti-
cle to my father. I ant 47 years old,
far too old for such silliness; still,
I wanted my dad to be proud of
something that I had written.
Years ago he would have made
copies of it and mailed it to
everyone in his family. He did
this several times with stories of
mine that never made into prir.t.
He never told me directly that he
was proud of what I wrote, but
his actions spoke volumes to me.
:This is going to be the first
Christmas in my life without


him. I am sad that I cannot read
him my article, maybe he is up
there in Heaven right now, show-
ing everyone.
I can almost hear him, "Look
at what my boy wrote!"
I was 14. Christmas trees were
cheaper back then, but we did not
have the money for a store-
bought tree. There were some
woods behind the house that we
rented.
I decided that we had to have
tree. With a bow saw in hand, I
searched for a long time, but
there were no small evergreen
trees. As I walked back to the
house with my head down, my
father watched me approach. He
wanted to know what was both-
ering me. I told him with tears in
my eyes.
Dad got his bluegrass axe. He
and I took turns chopping on a
large old pine tree. When it final-
ly fell, we cut the top eight feet
out of it. In the living room near
the fireplace, it was a beautiful
Christmas tree. I made decora-
tions out of popcorn on thread,
and the stars.were of aluminum
foil.
As a child, I could not under-
stand why a Christmas tree was
not important to him. He just said
that having me around was good
enough.
Now, all of these years later,


like my father, I never bother
with a tree. Just having my dad
around was good enough.
He was from the old school
and did not normally share his
emotions with me, but the last
words that he said to me were, "I
love you son."
It is the only time in my life
that I ever heard him say those
magical words. I guess I was
stunned; my stupid reply was for
him to have a good'night.
I am going to miss him dearly
this year. Thank goodness I do
have my wife, my cat, and an old
barking dog who all love me.
They will help make it a good
Christmas to remember.
So do me a favor over the hol-
idays.
Reach out and tell someone
that you love them.
Give your children a hug.
Cherish your parents and
grandparents if you still have
them.
Make a friend feel nice.
Remember that someone out
there may be hurting, for who
knows what reason; just a few
kind words or a smile can make
'all of the difference in the world.
Merry Christmas; God bless
you; Peace on earth and good
will to all.


late Mary and me on the sale, and
rejoice with me at the prospect of
going from a five-day week of 12-
hours-plus to perhaps four 10-
hour days in a few months.
But they also express reserva-
tions about what our papers will
be' like without a Frisbie at the
head of the organization after 75
years. Believe me folks, that
makes me feel great; you flatter
me more than I deserve.
SI will tell you what they will be
like: .
,; They will be better.
Sun Coast just about has a lock
on the Florida Press Assn.'s top
awards every year in the Better
Weekly Newspaper Contest.
We're going to make the Venice
Gondolier Sun work a little hard-
er to keep that distinction.
There will be more advertise
ing, greater circulation, and high-
er profits. I have seen these folks
in action. All of these translate
into a better newspaper.
Mary and I aren't, going any-
where. We have a' three-vear
employment contract with Sun
Coast, and an understanding that
it might be extended. For the first
time in many years, we plan to
take more than one week of the
four weeks of vacation to which
our personnel policies (and Sun
Coast's) entitle us.
Trust me: our papers will
improve, and you will notice the
improvements. Just do me a big
favor, okay? '
Tell me once that our papers
are better under Sun Coast's
ownership; don't tell me every
time you see me.
I do have an ego, you know.

Polk FPRA Drive Nets 502 Teddy Bears,

But More Needed for Children's Advocacy


While local chapters' of the
Florida Public Relations Assn.
(FPRA) donated a record 502
teddy bears, the Children's
Home Society needs some 1,000
more to comfort children in trau-
matic situations.
The Dick Pope/Polk County
chapter of FPRA and its affili-
ated Florida Southern College
(FSC) chapter closed out their
2006 Christmas Teddy Bear
drive by'donating a record 502
teddy bears and other stuffed
creatures to the Bartow-based
Child Advocacy Center program
of the Children's Home Society.
Despite the windfall of 502
stuffed toys from..the annual
FPRA drive;, thq Children's
'Home Society needs even more
of these comforting "furry
friends", to meet its anticipated
annualneed.
Social workers and law en-
forcement officials use the teddy
bears to bring comfort to chil-
dren who' are victims of sexual
abused physical abus6 and negli-
gence, or may have witnessed a
-violent event. :
To underscore the need, Di-
onne Hbdgson, director of the
Children's Home Society, said
that in' 2005 alone, th, agency
handled a total of 1,755 cases in


Polk and Hardee counties where
teddy bears were needed to com-
fort children"'facing traumatic
situations arising from abuse
and neglect. Thus far this year,
Hodgson added, the organization
has handled 1,333 such cases.
"Even though our Teddy Bear
Drive for 2006 is over and was a
tremendous success,swe:encour-
age citizens of Polk and Hardee
counties to help the Children's
Home Society meet its year-
round needs by continuing to do-
nate teddy bears and other
stuffed animals directly to the
agency," said Susan Clayton
Black of United Way of Central
Florida and president of the
FPRA chapter.
Teddy bears can be dropped,:,
:offlbetween 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on
any weekday at the Children's
Home Society at 1260 Golfview
Avenue in Bartow. More infor-
mation, including directions to
the office, is available by calling
519-3900, ext. 242.
"The teddy bears are very
comforting to children facing
traumatic events in their lives.
SWe thank FPRA as well as other
organizations and individual citi-
zens for donating to this cause,"
Hodgson said, noting that 1026
girls and 729 boys in the two


Eberhard Faber, a Bavarian immigrant, built the first mass-produc-
tion pencil factory in the United States in 1861.


)


counties, ranging in age from in-
fancy to 17, were involved in dis-
tressing situations in 2005.
The two FPRA chapters pre-,
sented the 502 teddy bears to
Hodgson during a recent meet-
ing on the FSC campus hosted
by the student chapter. An esti-
mated 180 teddy bears were
gathered on the FSC campus by
a cOmmaitee headed by Rachel
Barnes, member of the FSC
student FPRA chapter. FSC pub-
lic relations professor Chris Fen-
ner is the chapter's faculty advi-
sor.
The remainder of the teddy
bears were donated by individ-


ual FPRA members and by em-
ployees of organizations where
FPRA members set up collection
boxes. Members of the general
public also dropped off teddy
bears at United Way headquar-
ters in Highland City while the
drive was underway.
The previous record, of 300
was set two years ago. The. Dick
Pope/Polk 'County chapter initi-
ago, with the student chapter ac-
tively involved for the past two
years

This holiday season,
Adopt-A-Manatee,
for someone you love
and help protect an
endangered species.




Save the Manatee. Club
500 N. MAINLAND AVE. MAITLAND, FL 32751
1-800-432JOIN (s646)

.-.--... ...... ....................


The holiday season is a time
of giant expectations for young
children. Kids face enormous
marketing efforts from every
front about the toys they "must
have" this year.
Even adults get affected by all
the advertising. We. may find
ourselves fantasizing about foot-
ball games on thatgiant screen
TV, or looking great in that new
sports car.
Of course, as adults, we usu-
ally can put such fantasies aside
as we remind ourselves.that our
lives have limits. But for a young
child it's much harder to accept
the reality of day to day life.
That, fantasy about how much
better that "hot" new toy will
make his or her life is very real.


This happens because young
children have the ability to move
from reality to fantasies and
dreams much more easily than
adults. Our life experience has,
taught us that allowing dreams
'to run wild for too long increases
our chances for disappointment
when we face the reality of our
everyday lives.
But kids are programmed to
spend a lot more time in their
fantasy worlds and to see their
dreams as realities that are pos-
sible. It's all part of normal hu-
man development. This ability to
play and imagine is the root of
creativity.
Belief that a particular toy
will help them live out their fan-


tasy is very strong for young
children. Your adult reasons
why their request can't be met
have little meaning. Saying,
"That toy is too expensive," may
just make the child cling harder
to the fantasy of how wonderful
it would be to have it.
Rather than fighting the re-
quest, try allowing your child to
enjoy the fantasy by showing you
'understand. Saying, "That really
does look like a great toy," or
asking "What do you like about
that toy?" or "What would you do
if you had it?" allows the child to
keep the dream alive without
your giving in to the demand or
just saying no.
By not resisting the fantasy


you allow your child to return to
reality at his or her own pace,
and you avoid feeling guilty or
being responsible for a broken
dream. Then, when the passion
for the toy is not as high, try
having a calm discussion about
why getting that particular toy
is not a good decision.

Limit Video Game Time For Health


SMove over Tickle Me Elmo.
The recently released Nintendo
Wii and Playstation 3 video game
systems are rivaling the giggling
red monster as the gifts children
beg their parents for most this
holiday, season.
As coveted as these new video
game systems and other models
are, some .parents may want to
think twice before buying them
for their children and teens, a
University of Florida child psy-
chologist says.
With more educational games
hitting store shelves and one sys-
tem, the Nintendo Wii, actually
requiring players to peel them-
selves off the couch to use it, video
game makers seem to be address-
ing concerns about how playing
affects children.
But too much gaming still puts
children more at risk for behav-
ioral and health problems, which
is why parents should consider
how they will control children's
playing before they buy a system,
said Dr. Eric Storch, a UF assis-
tant professor of pediatrics and
psychiatry.
"If you're concerned it is going
to be difficult to control how much
your child is playing, then one
recommendation would be not to
tempt them," Storch said. "Don't
purchase one of these systems."
Video games can be a good out-


let for children who like them, but
they shouldn't consume their
lives, Storch added. Setting limits
on playing time may help prevent
casual gaming from spiraling into
hours spent in front of a televi-
sion screen with a controller.
Children and teens who play
excessively often do so at the
expense of homework, and play-
ing solo can isolate children from
their peers, potentially causing
problems for them later in life,
Storch said.
"Social interactions teach you
how to deal with other people as
well as what's appropriate and
what's not," he said. "You learn
how to handle situations. Social
interaction is also one way of cop-
ing with stress and receiving
emotional support."
Serious gamers who spend
hours sitting in front of a TV also
risk becoming obese and develop-
ing associated health problems,
such as cardiovascular disease
and type 2 diabetes, Storch said.
The American Academy of
Pediatrics advises patents to
limit children's total TV, video
game and computer time to two
hours each day.
Unlike typical gaming sys-
tems, the new Nintendo Wii uses
a wandlike controller that
requires players'to physically per-
form the action they want to see


on-screen. The system gets users
off the, couch, but it's still not like
playing soccer or jogging, Storch
said.
On the other hand, research
has shown that Dance Dance
Revolution, a game that requires
players to dance on a mat to.
mimic moves they see on their TV,
elicits the same level of motion in
children as other forms of exer-
cise -
But the game is a solo activity,
Storch said. Dancing with friends

or playing sports would get kids
moving and give them a chance to
spend time with peers, he said.
Although gamers lose time to
participate in sports and other
physical activities, video games
aren't the sole reason many aren't
more active, said Dr. Elizabeth
Vafidewater, an assistant profes-
sor or human development and
family sciences and director of the
Center for Research on
Interactive Technology, Television
and Children at the University of
Texas. :
If the video games weren't
there, many children would sim-
ply. find something else to do
inside, in part because crime and
traffic increasingly hamper their
ability to play outside, she 'aid.'
"Children in America are defi-
nitely less active," Vandewater
said. 'The question is whether


(TV, computers and video games)
are to blame."
Most parents know to 'watch
out for violent and graphic video
games, but even educational
games may not be as beneficial as
they seem in commercials.
Many games that claim to be
educational aren't evaluated to
find out if children are actually
learning from them, Vandewater
said.
"Parents need to know they are
being marketed to," she said.
Each family is different, so
deciding whether to game is best
left up to parents, Storch said.
The key she said is for parents
who do allow video games to
establish limits and rules and
stick with them.
Those concerned about chil-
dren abiding by the limits can
remove controllers or install a
new swipe-card system that only
allows them to play for a pro-
grammed amount 'of time, auto-
matically shutting off the system
when it lapses.
Another good strategy have
children.do homework and play
outside first, Storch said.
"There are certainly some posi-
tives to (video game playing),"
Storch said. "For many kids it's
really enjoyable. But moderation
is the key."


Be Careful When Signing Health Club Contracts


Getting in shape is great for
your health, but could be bad for
your checkbook.
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is reminding Florida res-
idents to check out health clubs
before signing any contracts or all
they might end up losing is
money. ,
Getting in shape is one of the
top New Year's resolutions and
many people may be considering
buying a gym membership for a
loved one over the holiday., But
Bronson urges consumers to do
their homework and not assume
they can cancel a contract if they
simply change their minds about
attending a club.
"A gym membership is a great
gift, but it is an investment and
buyers should be sure that it is a
gift the recipient will use before
they invest the money," Bronson
said. "Health club contracts are
legally binding like any other con-
tract and require some thought
and investigation."
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services administers the Health
Studio Law, which provides con-
sumers with some rights but also
spells out their responsibilities.
Health clubs are required to
register with the Department's
Division of Consumer Services
and many must also post a bond
that can be used to repay mem-
bers if the facility goes out of busi-
ness.
The refunds are provided in
cases where members pay pre-
paid memberships.
In fiscal year 2005-06, the
department registered 1,948
health clubs, of which 422 were
new applications.
Halfway through fiscal year
2006-07, 752 health clubs have


registered, 184 of which are new
applications.
"Unfortunately, many people
are so focused on getting in shape,
they sign up for a membership
without bothering to read the fine
print of a contract," Bronson said.
"But there are issues that are cov-
ered that consumers really need
to know about from the onset,
such as under what conditions
they can cancel, what activities
are covered in the membership
and other aspects that may be
important to the consumer's
needs."
The law provides consumers
with the right to cancel a contract
for certain reasons including: can-
cellation within three days of
signing a contract, exclusive of
holidays and weekends, but it
must be done in writing; if the
facility moves more than five
miles away from the original loca-
tion, and fails to provide, within
30 days, a facility of equal quality
located within five miles; if a per-
son becomes physically unable to
use most of the services for which
they contracted, until the disabil-
ity ends.
Bronson also recommends con-
sumers follow these tips before
signing a contract: '
Call the department's
helpline at 1-800-HELPFLA (1-
800-435-7352) to make sure the
health studio is registered and to
check its complaint 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
should you move or become phys-
ically unable to use the facility.
Before signing up, visit the
club during the hours you intend
to use it to determine whthter it
is overcrowded and the equip-

ment you plan to use is available.

offered require an additional fee.
