Mystery surrounds man who died in house fire


By DIANE NICHOLS
DNICHOLS@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
A friend's gut feeling led firefighters
to a Winter Haven home last Tuesday
where they came upon a grim discovery.
The body of 49-year old Keith Flournoy
was found inside the dwelling along
with signs of a recent house fire.
"His friend frequently took Flournoy
shopping and about town because he
had an illness that made doing those
things difficult," said Brad Ruhmann,
public information officer for Polk
County Fire Rescue. "He grew con-
cerned about him after he had been un-
able to reach him for a while and went
over to see what he could find out."
According to Ruhmann, the friend
had gone to the home at 629 Hart Lake
Drive at approximately 11:15 that morn-
ing. When Flournoy failed to answer the
door, the man entered through the front
door and found Flournoy's body, along
with extensive fire damage to the inte-
rior of the house. He summoned help


and when firefighters arrived on scene
at 11:30 a.m., the immediate investiga-
tion revealed black soot throughout
the inside of the house thick enough
to leave white footprints where they
walked.
Reports state there were no signs of
smoke or flames and that the fire had
burnt itself out. There also were no
neighbors or eyewitnesses who claimed
to have seen anything suspicious and
no calls were made to fire dispatch for
that address.
The Polk County Sheriff's Office is
investigating the death while the county
fire marshal continues to search for the
cause and time of the blaze.
Flournoy was born in Bartow and
attended Bartow High School. He later
began a real estate career at Realty
World on Broadway in Bartow before
becoming a single family property ap-
praiser for the county. He worked as an
appraiser for 14 years until health issues

Brett gets the CRA job

New director touts doing 'more for less'


By BILL RETTEW JR.
BRETTEW @ POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
Patrick Brett got the gig.
After serving as Community Redevelop-
ment Agency's interim director for three
months, Brett was chosen by the CRAs
board as the agency's permanent execu-
tive director, at Monday's meeting. Brett's
hiring is contingent on both sides signing
an employment contract.
The board chose Brett for the job rather
than NewYorker and former Floridian,
Glenn D. Weiss. Weiss interviewed via
Skype from an office in Times Square,
while Brett met face-to-face.
A pool of nine applicants was whittled
down to three applicants, with one finalist
pulling out of consideration at the last
minute. The board decided Monday to
only interview two candidates.
Brett powered past Weiss on the
strength of his record serving Bartow.
The new permanent director noted that
he believes in transparency and open.
communication, works closely with city
staffers, has experience making long-term


redevelopment plans and
encourages board members
to seek an education.
With CRA revenues down,
Brett talked about market-
ing the agency.
"We need to get the work -
out faster and for less do
more for less," said Brett. Brett
Weiss said he wants to
return to Florida, partly to be closer to
family.
Weiss said he is a very "hands-on"
person, listens well and is experienced in
graphic design and creating Web pro-
grams.
"My goal is to be a part of a small com-
munity like Bartow," said Weiss, an avid
gardener. "I just want to be a part of small
community."
Brett was the urban analyst for North
Miami Beach, was the assistant director of
the North Miami CRA and held a fellow-
ship with the Hallandale Beach CRA. He
earned an undergraduate degree from

Electric bills may cost less


By BILL RETTEW JR.
BRETTEW @ POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
The cost to cool and light the
house could go down if commis-
sioners take the advice of an energy
rate consultant.
Craig Shepard, principal analyst
for SAIC Energy, Environment and
Infrastructure, presented a study to
commissioners, at Monday's meet-
ing, promoting a 6.6 percent over-
all decrease in electricity rates for
11,068 city customers.
Shepard projected a yearly city
savings of $2.163 million following
the city's January switch from Prog-


ress Energy to Orlando Utilities.
"It's a rare occasion when we're
promoting that the rates be lower,"
said Shepard.
Commissioners seemed happy
with the projected decrease, but
any rate drop must first pass muster
with the Florida Public Service
Commission. A board vote to pos-
sibly decrease customer rates is at
least a month away.
"A rate decrease is.not a hard
decision," said Commissioner Leo
Longworth.
Mayor Pat Huff hopes to attract

Commissioners voted at Monday's
meeting to pass a S89.7 million city
grand budget with a 8.56 cut in prop-
erty taxes.
City Manager George Long said after
the meeting that city staffers "worked
hard" to prepare the 2011-2012 budget
with more than $4 million less expen-
ditures than last year. State statutes
dictate that municipalities must pres-
ent a balanced budget by Oct. 1, the
start of the fiscal year.
No city employees were laid off,
electric bills will likely drop and there
was an increase in average sewer rates
of $1.80 per month/per customer.
The fire assessment rose from about
$23.41 to $55.05 per single family ho-
meowner and will generate $448,000.
Last year, the fire assessment added
$222,000 to city coffers.
Long said that the additional $30
fire assessment "still only recovers half
of what it costs" to run the fire depart-
ment.
City property owners will be as-
sessed at 3.9996 mills which is 8.56

percent less than the roll back rate of
4.3075 mills. With decreasing property
values, if the rollback rate had been
assessed, overall city income from ad
valorem taxes would have stayed at
the same rate.
The commission voted 4-0 to pass
both the millage rate and budget.
Commissioner Wayne Lewis was
absent.
Gerald Cochran was the lone public
speaker and said the tax rate was
"mighty excessive" and the commis-
sion "needs to consider the people's
needs."
Cochran said that the city should
cut "high salaries" by hiring the "same
quality" of employees from the ranks
of unemployed residents willing to
work for less.
"I see something wrong with our
system," said Cochran. "We need to
find out where that money is going
and not take the easy way out."

VIEWPOINT


Check it out: Cancer screen can save lives


After a routine checkup four years ago,
Florida State's Hall of Fame football coach
Bobby Bowden discovered he had prostate
cancer. He received treatment and told only
a small family circle about it.
Then, this happened: Nothing.
There was no public impact on this very
public figure. He just went about his busi-
ness. His condition was not obvious; his
assistant coaches and players knew noth-
ing about it. Only last week, during Prostate
Cancer Awareness Month, did Bowden make
a splash with an announcement.
"I felt good; I was active; I never have done
anything if my doctor hadn't called after
my blood tests. The big thing I learned was,
don't ignore it and don't be afraid to talk
about it," he said.
Bowden is talking about it now as a paid
consultant for a prostate cancer awareness
organization. He joins other sports figures
and coaches who are-trying to reinforce the
essential message that realmen don't ignore
the very real possibility that they may be
afflicted with prostate cancer at some point
later in their lives. Live long enough and it


OUR VIEWPOINT
becomes an increasing possibility.
Bowden's message is one that should
resonate with our aging population in Flor-
ida. One in six American men will develop
prostate cancer, and one in 36 will die from
the disease. The American Cancer Society
estimates more than 240,000 men will be
diagnosed with the disease this year; nearly
34,000 will die as a result.
Here's how Bowden put it in perspective
last week: "That's pretty dad-_ummed heavy
numbers, kind of like women breast can-
cer."
The good news is that prostate cancer is
a very treatable disease: Well over 2 million
Americans right now dre prostate cancer
survivors. The key, though, is early detection.
The first step is for men to talk to consult
with a doctor during an annual checkup to
determine whether prostate specific tests
are appropriate. Prostate cancer commonly
develops during middle age. Men are ad-
vised to get a checkup at 45. However, any


earlier difficulties with urination or impo-
tence may be warning signs. Family history
also matters, so men should be wary if any
family members have had the disease. Pros-
tate cancer is also more prevalent among
African-American men. Earlier checkups
are recommended for those in higher-risk
categories.
As with any cancer, earlier detection helps.
Again, consult a doctor, but remember also
that the incidence of prostate cancer rises
significantly after age 50. Anyone over 65
who hasn't been tested or checked out by
a doctor is ignoring reality. Prostate cancer
is detected in roughly four of five men who
reach age 80.
The reality is that prostate cancer can
be treated and beaten through a variety of
methods. Many men continue to maintain
their quality of life after treatment. But the
key is early detection. See a doctor. Get
screened. Get treatment if necessary. Live
long and prosper.
Just take it from Coach Bowden: "If you get
it early you can get it. If you wait too late, it's
too late."


Government can be the problem


Throughout my newspaper career,
readers often told me how much power
the press has.
My heartfelt response:
"Yes, we have a lot of power. Most of it
is the power to do harm; our power to
do good is much more limited." I wish
it were not so, but it is.
Through malice, or more often,
simple carelessness, it is easy to hurt
feelings, damage reputations, or create
needless public apprehension.
Making good things happen is more
difficult.
Through editorial leadership both
reporting the news and making com-
ments on the editorial page it is pos-
sible to make a few good things happen,
and a little easier to stop bad ideas in
their tracks.
(To judge the accuracy or merits of
these efforts, listen to what critics have
to say. Legitimate critics will cite errors
in facts or logic; people who realize they
are in the wrong and have been caught
and exposed will simply implore you to
ignore what they call "foolishness" or
"misinformation.")
It is far more difficult for a newspaper
to identify a need, propose a solution,
and spur the "powers that be" to imple-
ment that solution.
In that regard, newspapers have
much less power than the public and
the press itself often believes.
I have long believed that the federal
government, particularly in its influ-
ence over the economy, is in a similar
situation. It can do and often does more
harm than good.


In 45 years of newspaper ownership
and management, I experienced far
more instances in which government
hindered economic success than when
it actually helped.
One of the most dramatic: when
a business reaches a certain level of
employment (20, unless the law has
changed) a company's private health
insurance plan becomes the primary
payer for employees who are covered by
Medicare.
For quite a number of years, we had
at least two older employees on Medi-
care who had large medical bills. We
kept an employment cap of 19, because
if we added a 20th employee, their
medical expenses would be assessed
against our experience factor, and our
costs would have risen dramatically.
As a result, we quit hiring part-time
employees, and rarely hired inexperi-
enced young people fresh out of high
school. We had to "reserve" our staff
positions for full-time, experienced
employees in order to stay at 19 jobs on
the payroll.
As government tries, with little suc-
cess, to bring the nation out of the


Great Recession, it often does more
harm than good.
It spent trillions of dollars to rescue
mega-banks, auto manufacturers, and
other economic giants deemed "too big
to fail," while smaller enterprises were
unable to survive, or were able to do so
only by laying off employees, often for
the first time in their history.
Government loaned more than half a
billion dollars to Solyndra, a California
energy firm with close ties to the White
House, and reacted with little more
than a shrug a few days ago when it
went belly up.


Oops.
Well, it was only $535 million.


At the same time, President Obama
demands that Congress fund his $447
billion jobs program immediately. No
time to ask questions.
And after rushing into the "stimulus,"
the subsidy of Solyndra, and Obam-
acare, all without adequate study or de-
bate, Congress ponders how to respond
to Obama's call to pass his jobs plan
immediately, without the due diligence

With unemployment not getting worse in last week's


numbers, do you


see the economy as getting better?


. . "I don't think hte
economy is improving.
It's very slow and it's
a shame. I hope it will
improve soon. It's hared
in this state and it looks
like it's hard all over the
country."


Ivanhoe Craney

... "No. I just don't see
any improvement. I see
businesses closing down
and I see a lot of new
businesses closing down
too."

Bartow


... "I work at
Guardian Ad Litem in
Bartow and I can tell
it's definitely getting
worse. We see a dip
with volunteers and the
people who come here
can't even afford to get
gas. Retired people are
moving away to live
with their kids to help
them with their kids."


Protecting our natural environment for future generations

So America Grows


"For three generations, my family has worked in
Florida Phosphate my father, his father and
now me. And I hope my kids will too. I study the
natural balance between the water and land.
I'm proud that we recycle 95 percent of the water
we use and plant nearly a million trees each year.
It's a good way of life, with respect for the land.
You might just say it's a family tradition."

FRISBIE: Government problem


FROM PAGE 4A
that should accompany such massive
spending programs.
It's only 200 pages long; couldn't pos-
sibly have any flaws, right?
Obamacare has demonstrably hin-
dered job creation, as businesses shud-
der at the healthcare costs that this new
program will create.
Banks are paying laughably low inter-
est rates, giving people minimal incen-


tive to save, because of the unrealisti-
cally low cost of money for banks from
the federal government.
Perhaps the government, despite its
record of failures thus far, can lead the
nation out of the Great Recession.
Or perhaps government, to a large
degree, is the problem, and could do
more good by getting out of the way.
(S. L. Frisbie is retired. As much as
he enjoyed entrepreneurship, he finds
retirement a lot more fun.)

Tag Art taking off


Art teachers will find even more creative
ways to provide art instruction as Kids
Tag Art kicks off its sixth year augmenting
classroom funding in Polk County schools:
Last year, the program raised more
than $25,000 and this year the project
hopes to surpass the $100,000 mark for
total dollars raised, organizers said.
Southern Homes of Polk County
has joined with a focus to expand the
opportunity for tag sales and even
more classroom funding through this
one-of-a-kind art contest and recogni-
tion program. Southern Homes is also
offering monetary awards to teachers
demonstrating exceptional effort. Other
sponsors are Douglass Screen Printers,
Polk Education Foundation and Alpha-
graphics. Southern Homes, Florida
Heart Research Institute, Grasslands &


OakBridge, and the law offices ofVec-
chio, Carrier and Feldman, PA, are the
newest sponsors
Joe Tedder, the Polk County Tax Collec-
tor, started this program in 2006 to inspire
fifth grade art students to learn about and
design their own specialty plate art and in
the process, raise supplemental monies
for classroom art supplies.
The Tax Collector's Office has raised
more than $89,000 for classroom art
supplies.
"Our museum partners say the
artwork continues to get better every
year, not just tag art, but other artwork
submissions throughout the year. We
are glad to know our program is making
an impact on the quality of instruction,
which is most important to student
achievement," Tedder said.

Bartow Explorers tops in competition


Physical and mental challenges
were overcome by Bartow Police
Explorers to win the first Explorer
Competition hosted by the Polk
County Sheriff's Office this summer.
Post 631 competed against eight
other teams from Polk County Sher-
iff's Office, Hardee County Sheriff's
Office, Lakeland Police Department
and Haines City Police Department.
Competition held July 25-29 includ-
ed scenarios presented in Unknown
Risk Traffic Stop, Crime Scene, Do-
mestic Violence, Officer Down, and
Crisis Intervention.
The Bartow Police Department Ex-
plorers stepped up to the challenge,
bringing home first place in the ob-
stacle course, second place in Traffic
Stops and third place trophies in the
Officer Down scenario and Crime
Scene. Members of the first place
obstacle course team were Dalton
Lyon, AC Christie, Tavores Smith and
Billy Saunders.
Explorer Dalton Lyon received
an individual third place medal for
shooting. Smith received an indi-
vidual second place medal for the
completing the Physical Abilities
Test in a blazing 2:09 minutes. Taylor
Patterson tied with Haines City Ex-
plorer Jane Combs for third place in
the female Physical Abilities Test.
Explorers are youth between the
ages of 14 and 21 who have ex-
pressed an interest in a career in law
enforcement. Members attend bi-
weekly meetings where they receive
training in various aspects of law
enforcement. Emphasis is placed on
community service work with orga-
nizations such as the Supervisor of
Elections Office and all city parades
or carnivals. Special "fun-days" such
as an upcoming canoe trip are also
offered.
The Bartow Police Explorers Post
currently has 10 members. Anyone
interested in becoming an Explorer
should contact Officer Michelle
Smith or Officer Tommy Stokes at
534-5034.

"It's not often we get to reduce
rates," said Huff. "This makes us
more competitive to other cities."
The city expects to enact an eco-
nomic development rate that would
give new larger power users a dis-
count for five years.
City Manager George Long said
that in the long run revenue would
increase with more customers.
"This is just the first step in a rate
reduction," said Long.
"The projections are based on
prior year's sales and anticipated
sales," said David Wright, director of
finance.

forced him to leave.
Friends and former co-workers
speak of him as a kind man who kept
to himself. Ken Jolly, Flournoy's next-
door neighbor, remembered him as
being quiet, but very pleasant.
"He was a real nice guy," said Jolly.
"He lived next to us here for the last
10 years, but we didn't really see him
a whole lot. My wife would take him
to stores and things since he was ill
and he'd come by and bring our son
birthday presents. It's shocking what
happened. It's really too bad. We've
been neighbors for a very long time."
Polk County Property Appraiser
Marcia M. Faux worked with Flournoy
beginning in 1991 and can't help but
smile when remembering the kind of
person he was.
"I was fortunate enough to have
worked with Keith from 1991 until
2005 when he left," said Faux. "He was
very quiet and shy. He kind of kept to
himself and did his work. He was just
very well-liked by everyone in the of-
fice."
Sarah Bruce was working at the
property appraiser's office when
Flournoy was hired in March of 1991.
Although saddened by his recent
death, she remembers him fondly as
an attractive man with a flair for bak-
ing sweets.
"I can't say enough good things
about him," said Bruce. "He was very
handsome and enjoyed baking all
kinds of desserts. When it was mostly
the women bringing in homemade
cakes and goodies for holidays and
parties, in came Keith with something
he had baked. He really enjoyed doing

that further decreasing rates for
commercial users would make the
electric costs more equitable across
the board.
The average residential customer
using 1,000 kilowatt hours might pay
$130.35 monthly rather than a cur-
rent bill of $135.19 a $4.84 savings.
Residential customers using 2,000
kilowatt hours per month would pay
$18.74 less toward a $281.30 bill.
New commercial customers using
500 kW and 200,000 kWh per month
will save for five years.
A commercial user consuming
200 kW and 80,000 kWh would see
the monthly bill go from $10,161 to
$9,329.

ment rider, new commercial custom-
ers would save on a sliding scale

things like that."
One of his dearest friends, Reba
Bryant, knew Flournoy before he had
started his career as a property ap-
praiser. The two worked together at
Realty World in Bartow in 1984, then
Bryant went on to work for the Polk
County Property Appraiser's office in
1984. When an opening became avail-
able for another appraiser to join the
team in 1991, Bryant didn't hesitate to
recommend Flournoy.
"He was awesome," said Bryant. "He
had such a wonderful personality and
was always doing something to make
you laugh. He was a constant practical
joker and would do things like tap you
on the shoulder and then jump in your
face when you turned to see who it
was. His best pranks were offering me
one of his french fries and when I went
to take one, he'd lick it or I'd get in his
car and just when I went to get my seat
belt on, he'd reach for the lever that
makes your seat fly back and we'd just
laugh and laugh."
Bryant treasures the many photos
she had taken with Flournoy during
a friendship that spanned just more
than two decades. Although she knew
he had left his career due to health is-
sues, he still didn't complain and kept
the details to himself.
"All he told me when he got sick was
that he had a blood disorder," said
Bryant. "He never elaborated. I was
aware he was ill for a very long time,
but I never really expected something
like this. He will be sadly missed."
Donna Wood, a spokesperson for the
Polk County Sheriff's office, said toxi-
cology results are still pending at this
time and it could take months before a
cause of death can be determined. Ac-
cording to Wood, there is no evidence
of foul play and from all appearances,
the fire looks like a tragic accident.

The world is coming to Bartow


The 2012 sports year looked pretty
bleak for the region. Tampa was
unsuccessful in its bid for the
Olympics, losing out to London. An
effort to get the 2012 Super Bowl played
at Raymond James Stadium fell short,
sending the big game to Indianapolis. It
looked like Florida was going to be out
of the big game spotlight until Bartow
stepped up.
Thousands will be coming to Bartow
late next summer as the Bartow Dixie
Youth Baseball organization will serve
as the host team for the 2012 World
Series. Teams in two age groups will be
playing their final games at the George
Pittas Complex with one team in each
division going away as world champion.
Now before you make the mistake of
saying, "That's several months away,
what's the big deal?" the big deal is the
fact that it takes more hours than you
would care to imagine in order to make
this happen.
The 2011 event for the 10 and under
group (AAA) and 12 and under group
(Majors) was held in Carthage, N.C. A
contingent from Bartow was on hand to
see how it's done. Included in the group
was Bartow player agent Jennie Walker.
"Our biggest goal right now is get-
ting full sponsorships in place and
start lining up volunteers," said Walker.
"Our executive board will start form-
ing committees so we can start getting
the community prepared for this. The
community needs to be aware that it is
happening and how everyone can come
together to make this the best experi-
ence possible."
The news of Bartow securing the
World Series broke last year with little
fanfare. In fact, some have let it slip
their minds. "We had one mother tell
us that she had no idea that Bartow
was going to have the World Series in
2012 and her kids have been to a World
Series," said Walker.
While the idea of getting such an
event in town is well beyond notewor-
thy, there's another element to this suc-
cess that makes it even better for those
who call Bartow home. According to
the Dixie Youth Baseball structure, the
World Series competition is composed
of the 11 state champions. Because you
can't have an odd number, the 12th
team is the squad from the host city.
In a nutshell, that means two Bartow
teams will have a chance for a world.
Now if that doesn't get you wanting to
support your community, I'm not sure
what it's going to take.
The "to do" list to prepare a World Se-
ries is daunting. The bid requirements
alone, something that has already
been done, filled 11 pages. It included
requirements such as meals and hous-
ing for visiting teams and officials
(Team- cannot stay at the same facility
as official-). There are requirements
like photos and laundry service, retriev-


ing home run balls for batters to keep
as souvenirs, consolation bags to be
awarded to teams eliminated, a series
program, specific dugout requirements
and even birthday cakes for the players
who are celebrating their birthdays dur-
ing the run of the tournament.
The biggest tasks will get the most
attention. This endeavor will need
sponsors and it will need volunteers,
lots of both.
"In North Carolina, they had over
200 volunteers. We're going to need
volunteers as host families, helping
with opening ceremonies, working the
concession stands, you name it. We're
starting to put our sponsorship packag-
es together now and will hit the ground
with those when they are ready. There
is a lot of work to be done. We wanted
to reach out to the community and let
them know what is going on. We are go-
ing to be very busy and we want it to be
the best it can be. We want the world to
see who we are. With the right support
from the volunteers and the sponsors,
this can be great," Walker added.
Bartow last hosted a World Series in
1987. The kids who played on those
teams are now old enough to become
President of the United States. There is
a certain buzz throughout the region
because Florida is a destination.
"The Dixie Board is excited to be
coming to Florida," Walker pointed out.
"They're coming to an area that really
caters to kids with all of the attractions
like Disney and Legoland, so it's going
to be whole families. I'm sure some will
plan to stay on after the tournament
and visit the attractions. We want them
to have a positive experience. The pres-
sure is on."
The visitors will be coming from
North Carolina, South Carolina, Geor-
gia, Texas, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkan-
sas, Louisiana, Virginia, Mississippi and
Florida. For some, it may be their first
chance to visit Central Florida.
It's never too early to get involved. For
those who want to play a role in one of
the biggest sporting endeavors to hit the
town, you're invited to contact Walker at
the email address bartowplayeragent@
yahoo.com. The team websites and
Facebook pages will soon be abuzz with
news as it happens. While the planning
is under way, the best time to jump on
a project is at a place where you can
make a difference. That time is here to
do your part, big or small.


US 17 Bowl Friday in Fort Meade


By LARRY JEWETT
CORRESPONDENT
The word "rival" gets tossed around
a lot, diluting the meaning of the word,
but when you use it in the context of
Fort Meade and Bartow, it's real.
You have all of the components of
a rivalry a long history of matchups,
close proximity in location and emotion,
lots of it. Fort Meade doesn't want to lose
to Bartow. Bartow doesn't want to lose to
Fort Meade. It's that simple.
In a game that has become known as
the "US 17 Bowl," bragging rights are
on the line. The community that gets
those rights for the year will be decided
Friday night.
Fort Meade comes into the game with
an uncommon losing record of 1-2.
They picked up their first win of the
season with a road victory over Haines
City last week, 24-21. Prior to that, Lake
Region came back to beat them, 28-27
in the last minute, something Bartow
can relate to.
Bartow Head Coach Brett Biggs would
have loved to go into this game unde-
feated, but it didn't quite work out that
way after the Jackets fell to Lake Region
27-25.


"This is a tough loss, but there were
a lot of positives," he said. "When you
win the turnover battles, you're sup-
posed to win the game. The penalties
killed us. You can't make foolish penal-
ties. We're a better team and we can't let
that keep happening. We just have to go
back to work for this week."
In addition to the numerous offensive
penalties, Biggs is troubled by the ex-
ecution of the point after team. Bartow
was able to get into the end zone four
times Friday night, but only able to at-
tain one extra point.
"We didn't see it all week during prac-
tice," said Biggs of the confusion and
lack of execution. "We get into a game
situation and all of a sudden some
guys forget that they're part of the extra
point team and they're staying on the
sidelines and we have to take a time out
to get the right guys out there."
As a former Bartow High School
player, Biggs understands the intensity
of the Fort Meade matchup. Last year,
the Miners captured a 31-6 blowout win
on Bartow's "Senior Night."
Those seniors are gone and it's a dif-
ferent world for both teams these days.
Kickoff is 7 p.m.

REPORT


Polk was home to'Champion of Freedom'


By PEGGY KEHOE
PKEHOE @POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
Polk County has a personal connection with the na-
tion's most important document, the Constitution, the
foundation of America's government.
Members of the Daughters of the American Revolution
learned about this connection at their annual Constitu-
tion Day luncheon hosted by the Bartow DAR on Sept. 15
at Peace River Country Club.
Lloyd Harris, Summerlin Academy teacher and Bartow
historian, told area DAR members, joined by a few mem-
bers of the Sons of the American Revolution, and guests,
that Polk County is home to a "Champion of Freedom ...
often overlooked for his influence and contribution to the
Civil Rights of our people and our Charter of Freedom,
the Constitution."
That champion is the late Spessard Lindsey Holland,
a Bartow native who served as a prosecuting attorney,
county judge, Florida governor and United States senator.
It was in that position that he "drafted and sponsored the
24th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States
which outlawed the poll tax as a prerequisite to voting,"
Harris told the group.
Holland "is often overlooked for his influence and con-
tribution to the Civil Rights of our people and our Charter
of Freedom the Constitution.
"President Lyndon Johnson called him, 'one of the five
most powerful men in the Senate.'
"In response to a reporter's question, President Dwight
Eisenhower named him as 'The Democrat who would
make an outstanding president.'
"ABC newsman commentator Howard K. Smith said he
was 'the most respected member of the U.S. Senate over
the longest period of time.'
"Back home, he is called by many experts, 'the great-
est Floridian ever,' and by others, 'the greatest governor
Florida ever had.' And from a small two-man law office
(Holland and WE Bevis) in Bartow in 1916, he changed,
grew and merged the firm into one of the world's larg-
est." That is the firm of Holland & Knight, created in 1968
when Holland's firm merged with that of the late Peter 0.
Knight in Tampa. Today Holland & Knight has 1,000 attor-
neys in offices around the country and in China, Mexico
and United Arab Emirates.
Holland was bom on July 10, 1892, in Bartow, the son
of Benjamin Franklin Holland and Virginia Spessard Hol-
land. He was a 1909 graduate of Summerlin Institute and
received a Ph.B degree, magna cum laude, from Emory
University.
An athlete who played football, basketball, track, and
baseball, Holland "was offered a contract to play profes-
sional baseball with the Philadelphia Athletics," Harris said.
Holland also received a Rhodes Scholarship, but World
War I interrupted his plans. An Army captain, he earned
the Distinguished Service Cross for heroism after an aerial
mission behind enemy lines.
In 1919 he married Mary Agnes Groover of Lakeland in
1919. Holland served as Polk County Prosecuting Attor-
ney 1920-21; County Judge 1921-1929; trustee, Southern
College, Emory University; Florida Senate 1932-1940;
war-time Governor of Florida 1941-1945; instrumental in
purchase and establishment of the Everglades National
Park; United States Senator, 1946-1971 (elected four times,
served five presidents); one of the original sponsors for
Alaska's statehood, and Hawaii.

Spessard and Mary Holland are buried in Bartow's Wildwood
Cemetery, near his parents. Holland's gravestone commemo-
rates his accomplishments, concluding with "Father of the 24th
Amendment to the U.S. Constitution."
He was a member of numerous civic, fraternal, and
professional organizations, and clubs, and was awarded
six honorary doctorate degrees.
But his fight against the poll tax is one of his most
memorable accomplishments and it took 14 years of Hol-
land introducing anti-poll tax legislation to finally get a
measure passed in the Senate, Harris explained.
People often think the poll tax was only a Southern
device, used to keep blacks and poor whites from voting,
but actually it was used around the country for various
reasons, including as a per capital tax "simply to raise
revenue," Harris explained.
"Poll taxes are per capital taxes; that is, each individual
taxpayer pays the same flat tax," he said. While poll taxes
aren't necessarily charged as a requirement to vote,
"that became their most notorious use through the 20th
century."
In practice, though poll taxes were "an ineffective
means of raising revenue, and appeared to be less about
revenue and more about the suppressive effects of a price
increase on voting," Harris learned.
"Taxes as a voting qualification developed initially as an
alternative to property qualifications. Urbanization, de-
mographic changes and population growth put pressure
on state constitutions to adapt to new realities."
As far back as 1821, the New York Constitutional
Convention proposed abolish property ownership and
substituting "virtue and morality" as qualifications for


voting. That was defeated in favor of a tax, residency
requirements or military service. However, black voters
were required to own property.
The controversy in New York over requirements for
black voters "foreshadowed the prevalent use of poll
taxes to disenfranchise blacks (and poor whites) primar-
ily in the post-Reconstruction South," Harris explained.
"Whereas poll taxes had broadened suffrage in the early
19th century in many places, by the late 19th century the
poll tax requirement served a directly contrary purpose,
that of restricting the suffrage."
It became common after the Civil War for new South-
emr state constitutions to include a flat poll tax, with the
revenue going to schools.
Delaware enacted a poll tax prerequisite for voting in
1873; Florida in 1889. "The poll tax was not limited to the
South, but it longest lived use as a precondition for voting
was in Southern jurisdictions."
There were efforts, both judicial and legislative, made to
abolish the poll tax before Holland took up the cause, but
they were not successful.
Starting with the 81st Congress in 1949, Holland intro-
duced an anti-poll tax constitutional amendment in each
session. "The subcommittee on constitutional amend-
ments would hold hearings, report the amendment favor-
ably to the Senate Judiciary Committee, at which point
the effort would languish."
Finally in 1962 amendment allies bypassed the com-
mittee by substituting the anti-poll tax language into
another resolution.
"Some civil rights groups opposed a poll tax amend-
ment because they believed it would set a precedent
under which all subsequent civil rights measures would
proceed via constitutional amendment," Harris ex-
plained, which would slow down civil rights reforms.
Holland once again introduced legislation to outlaw the
Poll Tax. The 1962 Senate floor debates stalled, opposing
senators led an 11 day-filibuster. Holland said that "every
citizen should, as a matter of right, be entitled to vote."
The Senate finally approved the Amendment 77-16 and
went to the House of Representatives.
Amendment XXIV reads: "The right of citizens of the
United States to vote in any primary or other election
for President or Vice President, for electors for President
or Vice President, or for Senator or Representative in
Congress, shall not be denied or abridged by the United
States or any State by reason of failure to pay any poll tax
or other tax."
After the bill passed the Senate and House it was sent to
the states for ratification, which happened within a year
and a half.
"On Jan. 23, 1964, the Constitution of the United States
received its newest declaration of Freedom on behalf of
the People of the United States the 24th Amendment,"
Harris said.
He and his wife are buried in Bartow's Wildwood Cem-
etery. A "long gray, granite slab" recites his accomplish-
ments, closing with "Father of the 24th Amendment to
the United States Constitution."
Harris closed by noting: "In the words of the 1963 Presi-
dents Commission's Report on Voting and Registration:
'No American should have to buy his right to vote in any
election.' And no American will... due to the Father of the
24th Amendment, our very own National Treasure, United
States Senator Spessard Lindsey Holland."


Publix looking to recharge your electric car


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

There hasn't been a lot of publicity or
recognition that electric cars could be on
the way lately, but Publix is getting ready
for it.
This month the chain opened its first
electric vehicle charging station. And,
no, there's not going to be one at the new
Publix in Bartow and there won't be one
installed at the store that's being remod-
eled in Lakeland, either.
The first one is in Florida, though. It's at
the Green Wise Market location in Tampa.
That's in Hyde Park. Customers can
charge their cars for free at this location.
"We've had a handful of customers
who have used it since it was installed,"


said Publix spokesman Shannon Patten.
"This one was the first one in Florida,
but we have six more in the works and
one more planned."
She added that there isn't one planned
for Polk County. With the first one open-
ing on Sept. 1 it is far too soon to tell if it
is a successful concept. Patten said the
places the company is thinking of install-
ing the stations are where there is some
abundance of electric cars.
She said Publix started this because
the company is anticipating an increase
in electric cars. The charging station is in
a parking garage.
Another area where Publix is looking
to move forward is curbside delivery,
now known as Publix Curbside.
The service has been in operation for


about a year and is at two Atlanta loca-
tions and one Tampa store. Patten said it
is working well but the company is still
studying the three different concepts it
has in place and currently does not have
plans to expand it.
"We're studying the concept," she said.
"We piloted in three different stores and
all the stores have differences (in how it
works)."
In one store in Atlanta people pull up
to the store and the groceries they've
called in the order for are loaded into the
car. In another store in Atlanta there is a
drive-through. And the store in Tampa
has its own storefront.
"The models and study have similari-
ties and differences," she said. "We're still
studying it."


She said generally customers like it but
there are some problems they are deal-
ing with.
Publix charges customers $7.99 for the
service and people pay for their orders
when they pick them up.
Right now payments cannot be made
online. Shoppers can use cash or credit
cards; however, to use a debit card, the
customer has to go inside the store.
There is no difference in using coupons.
It generally takes about four hours for
a shopping order to be filled, the Publix
website says. And if you find out you
can't make your scheduled time to pick
up the order, Publix wants you to call
them to set up a different time. It's also
possible to pick up prescriptions this
way.

Before death woman may have had to write letter


By JESSICA VANDER VELDE
THE ST. PETERSBURG TIMES
LAKELAND At the home of Jeremi-
ah Fogle, the man accused of shooting
his wife and two pastors Sunday, depu-
ties found a journal, three letters and a
"sordid" note detailing sexual infideli-
ties.
The note confessing to cheating
was written in the voice of the victim,
Theresa Brown Fogle, 56. It contained as
many as 25 names. Sheriff Grady Judd
said she may have been forced to write
it.
At the scene, along with her body,
deputies also found a Bible, opened to
Matthew 5:17, part of the Sermon on
the Mount in which Jesus discusses the
law:
"Do not think that I have come to
abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have
not come to abolish them but to fulfill
them..."
Fogle had served as deacon at Greater
Faith Christian Center Church until
about six years ago, when Pastor Wil-
liam Boss asked him to take a tempo-
rary sabbatical. The reason, according
to Judd, was that several women in the
church complained about the way Fogle
hugged them.
Pastor Boss was among the victims
shot Sunday.
Fogle has been married at least seven
times, Judd said. In 1986, Fogle shot a
previous wife dead.
On July 6, 1986, police found Fogle,
then 32, at his Highlands County house
holding a Winchester rifle.
His then wife's body was on the
bedroom floor, an arrest affidavit states.
Diane Fogle was already dead.
Her daughter, Shekema Clark, then
6, was home at the time. So was Diane
Fogle's son, Thomas Black.
.The son told deputies he was watch-
ing television in a bedroom at their
Avon Park home when Jeremiah Fogle
told him to leave because he and his
wife needed to talk, a police report
states.
The son went to another bed and
fell asleep. He woke up when he saw a
bright light and heard Jeremiah Fogle
say on the phone that he had shot
someone and was going to shoot him-
self, the report states.
Then police arrived.


Church members hug each other after a
shooting. A gunman killed his wife at their
Florida home and then burst through the front
door of a nearby church on Sunday, shooting
two pastors, police report.

Laura Gardin, sister of Theresa Fogle, and Jon Gardin, Laura's husband, talk about the shooting
Sunday. A gunman killed his wife at their Florida home, police say, and then burst through the
front door of a nearby church on Sunday,


Fogle refused to leave his wife's side
and had to be pulled out of the bed-
room and handcuffed, the report states.
He was initially charged with first-
degree murder, but it was reduced to a
manslaughter charge, according to the
Highlands County Clerk of Court.
He got 10 years probation in a plea
agreement.
It was not clear why the state offered
the agreement. Records with the 10th
District State Attorney's Office were de-
stroyed a year after the completion of the
sentence, said Chip Thullbery, a spokes-
man with the office. The Highlands Clerk
of Court's records were sparse.
The state attorney prosecuting the
case, who has since retired, did not
return a phone call seeking comment.
The judge who heard the case has since
passed away.
Sheriff Judd said his own investigators
had run into the same problems. He wants
to know why Fogle never went to prison.
"Had he been in jail for the first degree
murder of his then-wife," Judd said, "this
current wife would be alive today."
Shekema Clark said Monday she


blames herself for not being able
to work harder to get justice for her
mother.
"It plays on my conscience," she said.
She didn't get any sleep after hearing
about Sunday's shootings in Lakeland.
After Fogle killed his wife, he walked to
a nearby church, where he shot pastor
William Boss once and then shot associ-
ate pastor Carl Stewart three times be-
fore being tackled by two parishioners,
the Polk County Sheriff's Office said.
Fogle has been charged with one
count of first-degree murder and three
counts of attempted murder in Sunday's
shooting..
The 911 calls capture the chaos.
"Lord have mercy," someone told
an operator. "People are running and
screaming from the church."
Another man: "People have been
shot."
"Have you been shot?" an operator
asked.
"Yes ma'am."
"Stay with me on the line," she told
him. "Stay on the line."
In the background, as the operator

ties investigate a shooting in Lakeland Sunday.

dispatched authorities, the man contin-
ued to plead, "Please help us ma'am.
"Please, ma'am, please."
When deputies apprehended him
at the Greater Faith Christian Center
Church on Sunday, he told them to go
to his house.
"You will find a full confession and
my wife," he said, according to an arrest
affidavit.
Deputies went to the house at 740
Savannah Ave in Lakeland and found
Fogle's wife dead.
In an interview, deputies asked Fogle
if he forced his wife to write the note.
"You can't force anyone to do anything,"
he told them. When asked if he felt
remorse for what the church members
witnessed, he said there weren't many
people present, adding "tell them 'I'm
sorry,'" the arrest affidavit states.
He said he had purchased the
.32-caliber gun from a friend, whom he
refused to name. -
He then said he loved his wife with
all his heart and invoked his right to
remain silent, the affidavit states.


Bea Dickey was highest ranking civilian


By STEPHAIIE WANG
ST. PETERSBURG TIMES

PLANT CITY- Lawrence Douglas
Dickey drove to the police department past
midnight Saturday and started talking.
"Lock me up," an officer recalled him
saying. "I just beat my wife with a bat. She
is hurt real bad."
That's the confession Plant City police
say Dickey, 44, gave before he was arrested
Sunday morning and charged with first-
degree murder.
At Dickey's home on Paddock Drive, au-
thorities found his wife, 44-year-old Beatrice
Ann Dickey, in the master bedroom with
blunt-force trauma to the head. A bloodied
aluminum baseball bat lay beside her.
Beatrice Dickey, the highest-ranking
civilian employee of the Polk County Sher-
iff's Office, was flown to Tampa General
Hospital and pronounced dead.
"Bea was an incredibly special person to
all of us at the Polk County Sheriff's Office,"
Sheriff Grady Judd said in a statement. "She
was not just our colleague, she was our
dear friend. Our Sheriff's Office family is
hurting. This is a tremendous loss."
She had joined the Sheriff's Office in
1996, rising to her position as executive di-
rector of business affairs. She led and man-
aged finances, human resources, training,


fleet operations, information technology
and business services. On the executive
chain, she ranked third, below the sheriff
and the chief of staff.
On the Facebook page for the Sheriff's
Office, a note about Beatrice Dickey gath-
ered dozens of comments within hours.
Former classmates, co-workers and strang-
ers left prayers and mourned what they
called a tragedy and a shock.
It had all started, Plant City police said, af-
ter Lawrence and Beatrice Dickey returned
home from a Saturday night concert.
Lawrence Dickey woke up a son both
husband and wife each had two children
from previous relationships who had
been sleeping on a couch. He hugged the
boy and said, "I love you, your mother is an
angel and will get you through this."
The son, who was not named in a police
report, heard Lawrence Dickey go into the
garage and drop an object, a sound the son
said he recognized as an aluminum bat
hitting the floor.
Lawrence Dickey walked into the bed-
room, and the son heard three thumps.
Then Lawrence Dickey went to the
police and turned himself in. He was be-
ing held in the Hillsborough County Jail
without bail.
Plant City police spokesman Tray Towles
said he wasn't aware of any history of do-


in sheriffs office


mestic violence between the couple, who
records show wed in 2007.
Lawrence Dickey has faced charges in
Florida only once before, according to
state records: In 1986, he was convicted
of reckless driving and resisting an officer
during arrest. A third charge of eluding law
enforcement was dismissed.
Jail records list his employer as Walmart
and his job there as asset protection.
Family members could not be reached
or would not comment Sunday. The father
of Beatrice Dickey's two sons declined to
comment, saying only that she was a loving
mother.
Beatrice Dickey was also a cancer survi-
vor, according to the Polk County Sheriff's
Office. She volunteered as the executive
director of Polk Sheriff's Charities, which
supports public safety causes. She served
on several organizations' boards and was
the treasurer of the Lakeland Kiwanis Club,
where president Jim Malless remembered,
"She always said 'yes' to doing anything."
She was a creative force, Malless said,
brainstorming and listening with a calm,
"let's get it done" attitude. He last saw her
at a Kiwanis meeting Friday, where she was
smiling.
"That never changed with her," he said.
Funeral arrangements have not yet been
announced.


Blake to run for

property appraiser
Steve Blake, a Polk County business-
man in construction, real estate, and
management, announced his candi-
dacy for Polk County Property Ap-
praiser earlier this month.
This is Blake's first foray into politics
after three decades in the private and
non-private sectors.
"I looked at what is being done and
is not being done currently and de-
cided it was time to run," says Blake.
"It's all about fairness. Life isn't fair,
but property values for ad valorem
taxation certainly ought to be."
No one else has declared candidacy
for that position. Marsha Faux cur-
rently holds the post and has been
serving in that office since 2000.
The property appraiser determines
the value of property by appraising it
and gives the county a tax roll. The mill-
age rate passed last week for the coming
fiscal year is $7.50 per $1,000 for those
who live in unincorporated areas and
$6.87 for those who live in cities.
Blake, 51, lives in unincorporated
Polk County with his wife of 23 years,
Doris. They have three children, ages
21, 12, and 10.
Blake is active in the community,
coaches youth football, and serves as
an elder in his Lakeland church.
He has a website at www.stevefor
propertyappraiser.webs.com.

P5 Conference: Should we pay attention?


Central Florida will be crawling with
presidential candidates this week as
the state Republican Party on Thursday
kicks off its three-day Presidency 5 con-
ference at the Orange County Conven-
tion Center in Orlando.
Here's your guide to P5:

What's the big deal? Why should I
pay attention?
Well, Florida, Florida, Florida for one
thing. Republicans can't win the White
House without Florida's 29 electoral
votes, and by many estimates Florida's
not-yet-scheduled presidential primary
will decide the 2012 Republican race
early next year.
At P5, the candidates will be court-
ing nearly 5,000 of Florida's most active
and influential Republican activists and
leaders, and the events will signal who's
hot and who's not in this pivotal battle-
ground state. It's Florida's biggest politi-
cal event of the election cycle besides
the presidential primary, 2012 Republi-
can National Convention in Tampa, and
the actual election.

What is it?
It's a three-day conference that kicks
off Thursday with a Faith and Freedom
Coalition rally and then a live Fox News
presidential debate at 9 p.m. On Friday,
the American Conservative Union,
coordinating with the state party, holds
its CPAC-FL conference featuring the
presidential contenders, a myriad of
'prominent conservatives and a debate
by the Republican candidates for U.S.
Senate. On Saturday, most of the presi-


McKeel on panel to

pick presidential

primary date
Lakeland's Seth McKeel was among
the six state legislators to pick the date
for Florida's presidential
primary.
McKeel, a Republican
state representative was
named by Gov. Rick Scott
along with former state
Sen. Al Lawson; Scott's
deputy chief of staff, Jenn ?
Ungru; state Sens. John MCKEEL
Thrasher, Rene Garcia
and Gary Siplin; and state Reps. Carlos
Lopez-Cantera and Cynthia Stafford.
The committee is scheduled to hold
its first meeting Sept. 23.
Some GOP leaders want Florida be
the fifth state in the nation when it
comes to choosing a presidential
nominee.
That means Florida would have to set
its primary before Feb. 28.


dential candidates will address nearly
3,500 P5 delegates from across. Florida
who will hold a straw poll, or mock
presidential primary election.

Can anyone attend these events?
The Presidency 5 events Thursday's
debate and Saturday's speeches and
straw poll election are open only
to registered delegates and registered
guests.
But on-site registration is available
for people who want to attend Fri-
day's CPAC-FL powwow, featuring all
the presidential candidates and many
prominent conservatives. The full
schedule is at cpacfl.conservative.org.
Registration is $45 for adults and $25 for
students. It will be in the South Con-
course of the Orange County Conven-
tion Center, 9899 International Drive,
Orlando.

members of the Florida Cabinet, leaders
of the Florida Legislature, bestselling
author Ann Coulter and conservative
leaders like Bill Kristol, Grover Norquist,
Ralph Reed and former U.S. Sen. Jim
Talent.

Who are the P5 delegates?
About 3,100 were chosen by their
county Republican parties, after paying
a $175 registration fee. Another 300
or so were selected by the state party
chairman, and overall the delegation is
supposed to represent the geographic
makeup of the state.

P5? What about P 1, 2,3 and 4?
Florida has a history of holding sig-
nificant "Presidency" conferences with
debates and a straw poll, and actually,
every winner of a Presidency straw poll
has gone on to win the GOP nomina-
tion. Ronald Reagan won Presidency
I on Nov. 12, 1979. George H.W. Bush
won Presidency II on Nov. 14, 1987. And
Bob Dole won Presidency III on Nov. 18,
1995. Then-Gov. Jeb Bush and the GOP
opted not to hold a Presidency event in
2005. And in 2007, the party's Presiden-
cy IV featured a debate and speeches
by all the major Republican candidates,
but at the urging of several campaigns,
particularly John McCain's, the party did
not hold a straw poll.

Are the candidates campaigning
hard for the straw poll?
No. Unlike prior years when some
candidates spent hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars courting Florida del-


egates, there has been minimal cam-
paigning. Trying tb lower expectations,
Michele Bachmann and Mitt Romney
have declared they aren't competing
for PS, and won't address the delegates
before they vote Saturday.

Doesn't that make the straw poll
meaningless?
Not at all. It won't tell us anything
about the campaigns' organizational
muscle, but it's an excellent gauge of
how these candidates stand at this
point in time with thousands of
Florida's most active and influential
Republicans. These delegates will have
ample opportunity to size up the field:
All the major candidates will be on the
straw poll ballot, and the delegates will
be sitting in the audience at Thursday's
debate and many will watch them at the
CPAC conference Friday as well.
Will the more obscure candidates like
former Govs. Buddy Roemer of Louisi-
ana and Gary Johnson of New Mexico
be on hand?
They won't be at the debate, but the
confirmed speakers at CPAC-FL are
Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gin-
grich, Jon Huntsman, Johnson, Thad-
deus McCotter, Ron Paul, Rick Perry,
Romney and Rick Santorum.

Will we even remember this a year
from now?
Most people, probably not. But presi-
dential campaigns are all about build-
ing momentum, and P5 offers a prime
opportunity in a pivotal state.

Florida unemployment at 10.7 percent in August


STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS

Florida's unemployment rate in August
remained at 10.7 percent for the third
straight month, state labor officials said
Friday, while the numbers in Polk County
improved by almost a point.
Florida remains well above the national
average of 9.1 percent for August and is one
of nine states with double-digit unemploy-
ment.
With the state's unemployment rate
stalled at 10.7 percent and 987,000 able
Floridians still out of work, Gov. Rick Scott
pointed to the addition of 71,000 jobs
since the first of the year as a positive sign
that his administration is making the right
decisions in regard to getting the economy
back on track.
"The addition of more than 71,000 jobs
since the beginning of the year is positive
news for all Floridians and businesses and
is a potent reminder that by making tough
choices, we are doing the right things to
turn the economy around," Scott said.
In Polk County the unemployment num-
bers for September were at 12.1 percent,
down from 13.2 percent in August. How-
ever the number of people employed for
those two months show a decline. There


were 240,170 people employed in August;,
in September that number was 238,004.
The number of workers in the labor force
also showed a decline over those two
months from 276,753 to 270,789.
The Washington-based Economic Policy
Institute noted Friday that California, Flori-
da and Texas have the largest job deficits.
The economist's group said too many
states are seeing the harmful effects of
meeting revenue shortfalls by cutting bud-
gets. They noted that unemployed teach-
ers, police officers and firefighters aren't
able to contribute to a sound economic
recovery and urged the federal government
to pass a substantial jobs bill as soon as
possible.
The counties with the lowest unemploy-
mentin Florida are those with a relatively
high number of government jobs or sea-
sonal increases in tourist-related positions.
After improving for five consecutive
months earlier this year, Florida's unem-
ployment rate has flat-lined, but Scott re-
mains confident of his campaign pledge to
create 700,000 new jobs in the state within
seven years of his taking office earlier this
year.
"There is still a long road ahead, but
by removing the red tape that restricts

Job Resources.


economic development we are on the right
path to getting Florida back to work," Scott
said. "The August job numbers prove that
when you reduce the size, scope and cost
of government, it allows the private sector
jobs to grow."
The Agency for Workforce Innovation
reported that 20,400 government jobs at
the state, local and federal all levels have
disappeared this year the most in any
category.
"For every job lost in the public sector,
Florida gained two jobs in the private sec-
tor," Scott said.
The construction industry, which has
lost 17,600 jobs this year, wasn't one of
those referred to by the governor.
The leisure and hospitality industry is
the fastest growing job sector in Florida
with an increase of 46,400 jobs, and private
education and health care also reported
adding 22,200 jobs.
Hendry County in Southwest Florida
had the highest unemployment with 17.9
percent of its workforce idled, followed
by Flagler County in east-central Florida
with 14.9 percent while Monroe County
reported the lowest at 6.7 percent. Polk
County's figure is the 13th highest unem-
ployment rate in the state.

Where to get poked in Polk


It's flu shot season and
By DIANE NICHOLS
DNICHOLS@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
With summer fading into fall, it's time to take a
moment out of our busy schedules and get our-
selves a flu shot, medical experts say. The annual
vaccination is the best way to prevent contract-
ing the virus, which affects up to 20 percent of the
population.
Influenza (the flu) is a contagious respiratory
illness caused by influenza viruses. It spreads from
person to person and can cause mild to severe ill-
ness. More than 200,000 people are hospitalized
from flu-related complications and 3,300 to 48,600
flu-related deaths are reported each year.
Those who should get vaccinated against influ-
enza are all persons who want to reduce the risk of
becoming ill with the virus or of transmitting influ-
enza to others, health officials report. All children
from 6 months through 18 years of age should also
get the vaccine, as well as anyone 6 months of age
and older with certain chronic medical conditions
such as diabetes, asthma, heart disease, a compro-
mised immune system or with a condition that can
compromise respiratory function. Another prime
population would be pregnant women and people
who live with, care for or come into close contact Th

accepted as payment with pre-verification prior to

Only those 6 months of age and older will be vac-
cinated.
Flu season typically peaks in Florida from August
through March. Symptoms include body aches,
headaches, sore throat and fever. Complications
from the flu can include bacterial pneumonia, ear
or sinus infections, dehydration, and worsening of
chronic medical conditions.
Central Florida experienced a-major flu epidemic
last winter with some hospitals reportedly seeing 17
times their usual number of patients. With the state
receiving so many visitors from across the country,
flu activity can typically spike in and around tourist
areas. Physicians recommend for added protection
against contracting the virus, people should wash
their hands frequently and stay away from those
coughing or showing signs of sickness.
"I just got my flu shot at Walmart the other day,"
said Vicki Striker of Bartow. "I hate needles and all,
but it's well worth it. I've gotten it every year for the
last six years and I've yet to catch the flu. Why take
the risk if there's something that can protect you?"


Parkview Medical Clinic helps put clients on path to health


A $100,000 grant from Blue Cross and
Blue Shield of Florida Foundation will
make it possible for Parkview Medical
Clinic to expand provision of medical
services to medically needy persons in
Haines City.
The grant was made during the an-
nual Business and Industry Awards
Luncheon of the Haines City Northeast
Polk County Regional Chamber of Com-
merce on Sept. 15.
Since 2002, Parkview Medical Clinic has
helped low-income, uninsured adults and
children in Haines City access needed
health care services. Using volunteer phy-
sicians, nurses and other medical profes-
sionals and community volunteers, the
clinic provides free primary care services
to financially eligible patients.
When appropriate, the nonprofit clinic


connects patients to "medical homes,"
utilizing health care services provided
through the Polk Health Care Plan, and
to federally qualified primary care clinics
such as Central Florida Health Care.
Limited volunteer specialist physician
services are provided through association
with the Polk County We Care network
and local specialist physician volunteers.
Lab services are provided by Heart of
Florida Regional Medical Center.
Patients get help in accessing prescrip-
tion assistance programs through West
Central Florida Health Council's MedNet
Program. The clinic is covered under the
sovereign immunity of the state through
the Florida Department of Health.
Paul Senft, deputy director of the
Haines City Economic Development
Council and a former Polk County com-


missioner, called Parkview "a well-kept
secret in Haines City. We are proud of
the wonderful work this clinic is doing
by providing care to hard working, low-
income members of our community
that find themselves in need of medical
care. I have known the leaders of this
organization for some years and the
quality of care that these patients are
receiving is excellent."
Roosevelt Thomas, chairman of the
Board for Parkview Medical Clinic,
said, "Combined with the support of
our faithful volunteers and community
partners such as the Polk County Board
of County Commissioners, Polk County
Health Department, Heart of Florida
Regional Medical Center, First Presbyte-
rian Church and First Christian Church-
es of Haines City, and others unnamed


we are able to serve many Haines City
community members.
He said the grant will be disbursed
over the next three years and will al-
low Parkview Medical Clinic to expand
clinic operations and increase access
to primary care, health education and
referrals to specialty care.
Specifically, funds will be applied to
salaries for a health system navigator, as
well as medical supplies and equipment.
"The BCBSF Foundation is com-
mitted to the health and well-being
of Floridians and their communities,"
said Susan Towler, vice president of the
BCBSF Foundation. "Parkview Medical
Clinic continues to fill a critical need in
the community for accessible medical
services. We are honored to help them
serve the people who need it most."

Hospital expanding care to women and children


Winter Haven Hospital Foundation has
established a new charitable fund dedi-
cated to expanding access to medical care
for women and children in Polk County.
Proceeds raised from the upcom-
ing Winter Haven Hospital Foundation
Gala on Nov. 10 will be contributed to
the new fund. Beyond that, the founda-
tion is expanding its efforts to work with
philanthropic-minded organizations and
individuals to address the unique health-
care needs of local women and children.
The Foundation's Women & Children's
Fund initially will use its resources to
target initiatives for "talent, technology,
training and facility improvements,"
at the Regency Center for Women and
Infants, said Eric Adamson, chairman of


the foundation's board of trustees.
"We want to make sure that we have
the best available personnel, state-
of-the-art facilities/technology and
the most well-trained staff that we
can find," Adamson said. "This is the
product of months of discussion by the
leaders of our foundation, our hospital
and our community. The consensus
among our trustees is we must take this
next step as an organization to continue
to create the world-class healthcare that
all of us want."
In 2006, the Regency Center for
Women and Infants was awarded the
national Premier Award for Quality for
Maternal and Neonatal Care.
The award recognized Regency as a


national leader in healthcare, achiev-
ing excellence in both quality of care
and operational efficiency. In 2007, the
Regency celebrated its 20th anniversary
and the fact that more than 37,000 ba-
bies had been delivered since its open-
ing. That number today exceeds 40,000.
Roughly 2,000 babies are born each
year at the Regency. Of those, about 300
babies each year require the services of
the Regency's Level II neo-natal inten-
sive care unit, or NICU. The NICU spe-
cializes in care for premature infants,
defined as birth before the 37th week of
gestation.
"We recognize that providing health-
care services to women and children is
a unique proposition and that there are


circumstances where a special setting
may be beneficial or that a particular
service should be offered in a distinctive
way," Lance Anastasio, president and
CEO of Winter Haven Hospital, said.
"That's why the effort to create a special
fund is so important. We can train our
focus on this critical area of need in a
directed, purposeful way."
Lynn Oakley, a foundation trustee
and chair of the Gala Planning Com-
mittee, said, "We are very excited about
bringing this new focus to the mem-
bers of our community who attend the
Gala. Creating services that address the
special healthcare needs of women and
children is something around which we
can all rally."


Take steps to prevent peripheral arterial disease


Although commonly associated with the
heart and brain, atherosclerosis can affect a
body right down to its toes.
Peripheral arterial disease, or PAD, occurs
when blood vessels in the legs are narrowed
or blocked by fatty deposits decreasing the
flow of oxygen.
'According to the National Institutes of
Health, one in every 20 Americans older
than 50 has PAD. If left untreated, it can
lead to lower limb amputation and death,"
said Katy Rowland, chief clinical officer
for National Healing Corporation whose
nationwide Wound Healing Centers treat
chronic wounds with underlying condi-
tions of the disease as well as perform tests
for PAD and counsel patients on how to
manage the illness.
People with PAD are also at increased
risk of heart attack and stroke and are six
times more likely to die within 10 years
than those without the disease. The fact


that the majority of patients with PAD show
no symptoms in part led the U.S. Senate
to declare September as Peripheral Arterial
Disease Awareness Month in 2007.
There are many noninvasive tests to
detect PAD. Treatments include making life-
style changes to reduce risk, taking medica-
tion to reduce blood pressure or thin the
blood, physical therapy, improved foot care,
advanced therapies such as hyperbaric oxy-
gen therapy and in extreme cases, surgery.
The local experts at Highlands Regional
Wound Center, a National Healing Corpora-
tion Wound Healing Center, outline com-
mon risk factors:
Slightly more men than women have
the disease and, according to the American
Heart Association, African-Americans have
higher incidences than other ethnic groups
as do people with a family history of hyper-
tension or atherosclerosis.
Because the disease develops gradually,


a much higher incidence is seen in elderly
patients.
The most common symptoms are pain
or cramping in one or both legs (often the
calf) that occurs with exercise and subsides
with rest as well as foot pain that strikes
when a patient is lying down in the face up
position.
Other signs and symptoms are chronic
toe and foot sores, numbness in the ex-
tremities, weakness and atrophy of the calf
muscle, a feeling of coldness in the legs or
feet, feet which turn pale when elevated or
dusky red in the dependent position and
hair loss on the top of the foot
The American College of Physicians
states that not smoking or quitting is the
most important behavior to prevent PAD
or slow it down. According to the Periph-
eral Arterial Disease Coalition, smoking
even half a pack of cigarettes per day
may increase the risk of having PAD by


30 to 50 percent.
High blood levels of LDL cholesterol
and triglycerides and low blood levels of
HDL cholesterol are common risk factors.
Lifestyle changes for controlling cholesterol
levels include: eating less saturated fats and
cutting back on foods high in cholesterol,
increasing fiber in the diet, being more
physically active and losing weight.
People with diabetes are two to four
times at greater risk for PAD than the gen-
eral population and it is important for those
with PAD to regulate blood glucose, blood
pressure and cholesterol levels. The Ameri-
can Diabetes Association recommends that
people who have diabetes and are over the
age of 50 be tested.

and treating chronic or infected wounds,

Gout diet not restrictive


DEAR DR. DONOHOE: Will you give
me information on the low-purine diet
for gout? C.J.
ANSWER: Years ago, before effective
gout medicines were available, diet was
the major treatment for gout. Now, with
modern medicines, diet doesn't play
such a big role.
Elevated blood uric acid sets the stage
for a gout attack. Uric acid infiltrates
joints as needle-shaped crystals. Most
uric acid comes from the recycling of
body cells, a daily process. Only a small
amount comes from food. It's still wise
for gout patients to take it easy on foods
that are high in purines, but they don't
have to be as strict about diet as former
patients had to be. Purines are the sub-
stances that produce uric acid.
Gout patients ought to scale back a
bit on meat and fish. Anchovies, organ
meats like liver and sweetbreads, and
gravies have lots of purines in them, and
should be taken only once in a while,
if at all. Patients need to watch the
amount of alcohol they drink. Beer, in
particular, often triggers a gout attack.
High-fructose corn syrup and table
sugar ought to be used in moderation.
Soft drinks have a large amount of high-
fructose corn syrup in them. These are
the only foods that bear some watching.
Milk and other dairy products lessen
the chance of gout attacks. All fruits
and vegetables can be eaten without
any restriction.
Weight loss is important for over-
weight gout patients. That's about all
you need to know about the low-purine
diet for gout.
The gout pamphlet explains this quite
common and often misunderstood
illness. Readers can obtain a copy by
writing: Dr. Donohue No. 302, Box


The hormonal roller coaster that
women ride during and after pregnancy
is well-known and well-documented.
Men, it's popularly presumed, just sit on
the sidelines, watching, maybe eating
popcorn and smiling sympathetically.
But a new study out of Northwest-
ern University suggests that guys in
particular, new fathers face their own
less-than-thrilling drop ... in
testosterone.
Researchers tested 465 men partici-
pating in the Cebu Longitudinal Health
and Nutrition Study, which began in the
Philippines in 1983 when the volunteers
were all just a year old. In 2005, when
the men were all approximately 21,
those who were single had their testos-
terone levels measured when they woke
and when they went to sleep. Four years
later, the measurements were repeated
with the same men; half had become
fathers.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am 48 and
have been diagnosed with probable
tarsal tunnel syndrome. I had an MRI
scan. I have seen three podiatrists, one
neurologist and an orthopedic surgeon.
I currently am taking ibuprofen and
am seeing a physical therapist. I am
desperate to avoid surgery. As far as I
can see from research, the outcome of
surgery is not always positive. I be-
lieve physical therapy is causing more
inflammation. Can you recommend
physicians in my area who are knowl-
edgeable on this disease? M.S.
ANSWER: Tarsal tunnel syndrome
is the ankle's equivalent of the wrist's
carpal tunnel syndrome. In both,
there's compression of a large nerve
that passes through a tunnel of bones
and ligaments. In the ankle, the nerve
is the posterior tibial nerve. Pressure on
that nerve brings on numbness, burn-
ing pain or abnormal sensations in the
ankle, heel and the foot up to the toes.
Swelling in the tunnel through which
the nerves passes to enter the foot is


The scientists found that men who
had remained single had only a small,
age-related decline (12-15 percent) in
testosterone levels while new fathers
- those with a baby between 1 month
and 1 year showed levels dropping 30
percent on average. Hormone levels in
fathers of newborns declined four to five
times those in single men and twice as
much as fathers of older children.
Researchers suggest that, like new
mothers, new fathers adjust biologically
to their parenting role. "Newborn babies
come with really intense physical, emo-
tional and psychological changes," study
author Lee Gettler told LiveScience. "We
kind of see men's biology responding to
that."

the cause of the pain. Ibuprofen not
only reduces pain, but it also quiets
inflammation responsible for nerve
compression. An injection of cortisone
in the area of the nerve can be most
helpful when oral medicines are not.
You can call the local hospital for a
physiatrist (fizz-EYE-uh-trist), not a
psychiatrist. People get the two names
mixed up. Physiatrists are doctors who
specialize in the nonsurgical treatment
of many illnesses, especially bone and
joint illnesses.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My EKG
report, sent to me, says "left axis devia-
tion." Is that a big deal? M.Y.
ANSWER: It means that the electric
signal originating in the upper heart
chamber and responsible for each


heartbeat takes a different route to
reach the lower heart chambers, the
pumping chambers.
In the absence of symptoms, it's not
a dangerous thing. You don't have to
dwell on it. I take it you have a doctor
who ordered the EKG. That doctor will
follow up to see if you have any hidden
heart trouble. The condition is not an
emergency situation.

USF Poly could be state Sen. JD Alexander's legacy college


By KRIS HUNDLEY and KIM WILMATH
ST. Pi-TERSBLRG TIMES
Heads turned when the man who
controls the state's budget dropped
by a meeting in Miami last week of
the board that oversees Florida's uni-
versity system.
State Sen. JD Alexan- "
der, a Republican from '
Lake Wales and head of
the Senate Budget Com-
mittee, wasn't on the
agenda. But a matter of '
critical importance to
him was: a proposal to
make USF Polytechnic in ALEXANDER
his home county of Polk
an independent institution.
"I heard there might be a couple of
questions on funding, so I decided to
stop by," Alexander said casually as
he took the podium.
He assured Florida's Board of
Governors that the costs of trans-
forming the commuter college into
an independent polytechnic, capable
of churning out engineers and math
majors, would be "very minimal com-
pared to the return for the people of
Florida."
Indeed, the cost of not approving it
might be more than the board and-
the 11 universities that rely on Alexan-
der for funding are willing to bear.
Saying legislators will always find
money for educational programs that
put people to work, Alexander sug-
gested he might take a harder look at
some liberal arts programs.
"If you really scrub the numbers,
there could be degree programs
somebody can't find a job in," he
warned. "But if you've got a polytech
that can revolutionize training and
help grow the economy, that's an-
other thing."
Time is of the essence for Alexan-
der. He will be forced out of office by
term limits at the end of 2012. And
five board members leave at year's
end, meaning the proposal would
have to be reintroduced in January
if no decision is made at the board's
next meeting in November, when it is
set to discuss the proposal again.
Rick Dantzler, a former state legis-
lator from Winter Haven, has known
Alexander for decades and thinks he's
looking to leave a legacy.
"I assume JD sees this as something
he can be very proud of long-term,"
Dantzler said. "He's told me that in
a term-limited environment, you
sometimes have to be a little heavy-
handed or you run out of time before
you can get anything done."
* *
In throwing his considerable clout
behind a new university, Alexander,
52, appears to be carving out the next
notch in a family tradition. He's the
grandson of legendary Florida ranch-


er and citrus grower Ben Hill Griffin
Jr., whose name is emblazoned on the
stadium at the University of Florida.
His uncle, Ben Hill Griffin III, has a
hall named after him at Florida Gulf
Coast University in Fort Myers, which
was built on land donated by the
family.
Alexander, a multimillionaire who
runs two family-controlled compa-
nies with vast land holdings in Polk
and southwest Florida, last week de-
nied that he stands to gain financially
from an independent USF Poly. "I
have no property closer than 10 miles
away," he said, referring to a strug-
gling housing development in Winter
Haven in which he is a partner.
Alexander has represented Polk
County since 1998 and has long been
a strong supporter of USF Polytech,
which now shares a campus in Lake-
land with Polk State College. Alexan-
der was instrumental in getting land
along-Interstate 4 for the new campus
in 2003 and securing $35 million this
year to start construction the only
new-construction money for univer-
sities not vetoed by Gov. Rick Scott.
Now Alexander wants to see the
commuter school, which has about
1,660 students and graduates, mostly
business and elementary education
majors, transformed into an indepen-
dent university churning out engi-
neers and math majors.
It's a vision, Alexander told the
Board of Governors, that is "funda-
mentally at odds with the general
consensus of what USF is," hence the
need for separation.
In 2007, a consultant hired by the Board
of Governors warned against political
interference in choosing university sites.
"A new campus is a prize indeed
for any community and a feather
in the cap of-any legislator who can
deliver one," said the Pappas Con-
sulting Group report. "Often the most
'misplaced' campuses were in rural,
thinly populated areas where legisla-
tive power resided."
Alexander's power was evident in
his ability to get community lead-
ers on the secession bandwagon. In
late July, Wayne Watters, a longtime
Polk County resident and lobbyist
with ties to Alexander, asked dozens
of community leaders to sign a letter
supporting the split. He gathered
more than two dozen signatures, in-
cluding that of Publix Vice Chairman
Barney Barnett, in a matter of days.
The authorship of the letter, which
cites "regional needs and priorities"
as rationale for independence, is
unknown; Watters, who had several
clients among the signers, did not
return a call for comment.
Victor B. Story Jr., a Babson Park
citrus grower, signed the letter
despite clashing recently with Alex-

ander over major changes the legisla-
tor rammed through at the Florida
Department of Citrus.
"The senator doesn't worry about
style points he doesn't have time
for tea and crumpets, he's more
interested in results," Story said.
"But overall, he's represented me, my
industry and my county well."
David Touchton is a certified public
accountant and member of the Cen-
tral Florida Development Council,
which was recently asked to support
independence for USF Poly. Touch-
ton, 68 and a Polk County native,
declined. He worries that a "me-too
attitude" has prevented supporters
from asking hard questions.
"They tell me it will be better for
economic development, but I said
show me how, show me the study,"
said Touchton, who graduated from


USF's Tampa campus in 1965. "I can-
not think of a good reason to lose
USF's footprint in Polk County."
* *
Before community leaders had even
mailed their letter to the board, Alex-
ander was telling the Tiger Bay Club in
Bartow that USF Polytechnic "needs to
become Florida Polytechnic" during
his last term in the Legislature.
During that same speech on July
25, Alexander said he wished he'd
been able to be successful without so
many conflicts. But he claimed to be
driven by a higher goal: "To lay out
the strategic foundation to change
the economic future of our region
and to help our children and grand-
children want to live here and have
opportunities. I think we've made
amazing progress in making those
happen."

Florida is much more than white, sandy beaches


Agriculture plays


an important role in state's economy


By ADAM PUTNAM
FLORIDA COMMISSIONER OF AGRICULTURE
When many think of Florida, white
sandy beaches, blue waters and bright
sunshine come to mind. Given the
important role it plays in the state's
economy, agriculture should be top of
mind as well. There are 47,500 farms,
approximately 766,000 individuals and
more than 9.2 million acres of land
that make up Florida agriculture and
contribute more than $100 billion to
the state's economy.

Adam Putnam



Florida (ommis ner If Aarculture


Florida farmers produce nearly 300
commodities during the state's year-
round growing season. Florida is the
nation's leading producer of oranges,
grapefruit, sugarcane for sugar and
seed, fresh market snap beans, fresh
market tomatoes, fresh market cucum-
bers, squash, watermelons and sweet
corn. It is second in the production of
tangerines, strawberries, bell peppers
and cucumbers for pickles. The state
takes fourth place in the production of
honey.
Agriculture is especially important in
Central Florida, where citrus, cattle and


sod production generate approximately
$400 million each year. Polk, Hardee,
Highlands and DeSoto counties rank as
some of the most productive agricul-
tural counties in the state. Collectively,
more than 60 percent of the land across
these counties is used for agricul-
tural purposes and more than 10,000
residents are employed by this vibrant
industry.
Given its importance in this area,
protecting these vulnerable com-
modities from various threats, includ-
ing pests and diseases, is one of the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services' top priorities.
The Department is focused on finding
new and innovative ways to detect and
prevent the spread of citrus canker,
greening, H1N1 and exotic Newcastle
disease.
Under the state's Citrus Health
Response Program (CHRP), the Depart-
ment works with the U.S. Department
of Agriculture and industry leaders to
protect the Florida citrus industry from
pest and disease challenges.
Recent accomplishments of the
CHRP program include the approval
to move citrus nursery stock to other
markets, improvements in citrus psyl-
lid biological control mass rearing
techniques, a renewed effort to abate
abandoned citrus acreage that pose a
nuisance to citrus production areas, the
implementation of an urban outreach
program to educate the public about
citrus diseases and what can be done to
manage them and prevent their spread
into commercial areas, and the devel-
opment of Citrus Health Management


Areas (CHMA).

nership between the Department, Uni-

Tomkow sees cattle everywhere


Action busy on Tuesdays at Livestock Market, but that's the only day people see all the work


By CATHERINE PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
Lakeland's Dave Tomkow sees cattle
everywhere, hundreds of them, on his
own land, his leased land and most im-
portantly on a seven-acre site off U.S.
Highway 92 east of Lakeland.
Tomkow and his brother Mike see
hundreds of cattle every Tuesday when
they are sold at the brothers' Cattlemen
Livestock Auction Market.
Selling cattle has been a family affair
since the 1980s when Tomkow's father
bought the livestock market from the
McCollums, who started it in 1951.
Since Florida is a cow-calf state,
which means the cattle are only raised
until they reach a certain weight, most
of the cattle bred and raised in the state
are sold to out-of-state buyers through


local brokers, Tomkow said.
"They buy them here and ship them
somewhere where feed costs are lower
to finish them," he said.
The mostly crossbreed cattle are de-
livered to the auction market on Mon-
days and early on Tuesdays, and the
sale starts at noon. Cattle are sold at a
rate of about 170 an hour, according to
the veteran rancher and marketer.
"Today's markets are pretty good," he
said. "Nationwide, cattle production is
low, so those produced are bringing up
the demand and the price."
According to the cattleman, dur-
ing the last six or seven years some of
Florida's prized pasture lands were sold
to developers, which resulted in many
ranchers who stayed in the business
cutting their herds.
"The cost of operations just went up,


for our customers and for us," Tomkow
said. "So, with fewer cows on the mar-
ket, the prices have gone up."
And Tomkow's job, he says, is to
"work for the seller" and get top dollar
for each and every head sold. The cattle
are usually sold in groups, but can be
sold individually, depending on the
seller's request.
"They are sold by the pound and oc-
casionally we have to reweigh one, or
if a cow comes in the owner thinks is
pregnant, we'll do an individual sale."
The average weight of a cow sold is
400-500 pounds, he adds, and each
animal is weighed prior to the sale.
Tomkow says the average sale is about
800 head.
While the Tomkows see hundreds of
cattle every Tuesday, that's nothing new
to them.


"We've got about 1,000 head our-
selves," he explains. "So we know how
important it is to the seller that we get
him top money for his cows."
He adds the price gained at auction
can decide what the rancher's herd size
next year will be.
"If they don't get enough money for
their cows, they may have to cut their
herds for next year," he said.
The auction/market isn't just teeming
with cattle on Mondays and Tuesdays.
"We have about 25 employees on sale
days, including the auctioneers," he
said.
While the vast majority of the mar-
ket's sales are in cattle, Tomkow says,
they occasionally sell a horse or two.
"But that's unusual," he adds.
He's just happy to see cattle, lots of
cattle.


Agriculture may be the silent giant in Florida


12 percent of state's 48,000farms located in


this area


By CATHERINE PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
While most Florida news focuses on
the tourist trade, a silent giant keeps a
majority of four Central Florida coun-
ties going in tough economic times.
The state's silent supporter is mostly
low key, but agriculture in Florida uses


10 million acres of Florida land, gener-
ates billions in annual income and
provides almost 800,000 jobs.
These farms cover more than one
and a half million acres and generate
a wide variety of crops and livestock,
making Florida a leader in agribusiness
that feeds some $100 billion into the
state's economy and $3 billion in state
and local taxes.
According to the Florida
Department of Agriculture,
there are 47,500 farms in
the state, with 2,768 in Polk
County, 1,081 in Hardee,
832 in Highlands and just

Citrus in Hunt's and area's blood


It's tougher than it used to be but provides for area's


quality of life


By CATHERINE PALMER
CORRESPONDENT


Citrus is in the blood. At least it's in
G. Ellis Hunt Jr.'s blood. He's lived it
all his life, worked at it all his life and
loved it all his life.
Hunt, one of Lake Wales' Hunt Broth-
ers, is a third-
generation grower,
racking up 35
years of watching
his groves, count-
ing his harvest
and doing his
part to improve
the industry. He '-
not only man-
ages groves and
markets fruit but
represents the
Heartland on the Ellis Hunt
state's Citrus Com-
mission. ,
Hunt Brothers has 2,500 acres of
groves in Lake Wales along with an-
other 2,500 acres to the south of Polk
County in LaBelle and Immokalee, so
Ellis Hunt walks the walk and talks the
talk.
"People love the business," he says,
"and have pride in it. "My family has
been growing since 1922 and we all
work together. We have a big family and
all want to do this. We work very hard
to stay in business."
And, according to the grower, that's
a little harder to do these days. He says


the increased cost of diesel fuel in the
past two years has affected operations.
"Everything we do is diesel-pow-
ered."
He explains that without abundant
rain, new plantings need to be watered,
driving up the amount of time the
pumps have to work. And the pumps
run on diesel fuel.
"We can't pass that cost on, so it af-
fects our bottom line."
Hunt Brothers grows several varieties
of oranges, tangerines and grapefruit.
And, it's not easy. He says today's
economic climate has had an affect on
retail sales.
"When people have limited budgets,
things beconie a matter of individual
priority. Orange juice still is one of the
top food values in the world. We hope
it stays on the top 10 list for grocery
purchases," Hunt says.
Besides the escalating cost of opera-
tions related to fuel, Hunt says there
are two major issues facing growers:
citrus greening and a stable legal work-
force.
Citrus greening is a virus spread by
insects that affects the quality of the
fruit and ultimately kills the tree. Hunt
explains that while older trees are more
resistant to the virus, the additional
spraying for the psyllids that spread the
disease adds to the cost of production.
He likened the greening disease to HIV
in humans.
"One of the biggest problems we
have is keeping the insects under


The Hunt family.
control," he said, "But when there are
more than 140,000 abandoned and
unsprayed groves where the psyllids
are unchecked, the slightest breeze can
spread them to a healthy grove."
He added that the Florida Citrus
Commission has made the halt of the
disease a number one priority. He also
said there are studies under way to
develop the means both to control the
insects and to kill the virus.
The second issue, according to Hunt,
is the ability for growers to maintain a
stable legal workforce.
He maintains that better immigra-
tion programs for guest workers could
facilitate harvests and alleviate growers'
concerns about properly-documented
migrant workers. Hunt Brothers has a


seasonal high of 250 employees in its
workforce.
Despite the issues, Hunt says he
recognizes the prominence agriculture
plays in both the state's and the nation's
future.
"We have to protect our commodities
production," he said. "If we lose them,
there is a downward domino effect.
We have to provide safe and abundant
food production for the preservation of
all that we have in this country."
He also says many people "don't
realize and appreciate what agriculture
does for them. Not only do we provide
food for the table, but we provide green
space, water quality and oxygen re-
charge. That's why it is all so important,
and important to me and my family."

Take that Georgia, Polk farmer plants peach trees


By BILL RETTEW JR.
BRETTEW@ LAKEWALESNEWS.COM
Farmer Clint Updike of Sunny Florida
Peach Company in Alturas is making
fundamental changes.
Updike oversees 37 Polk County
acres of peaches the quintessential
Georgia fruit. He hopes to take delivery
this week and plant another 15,000
peach trees on an additional 200 acres.
He expects the resets or seedlings will
produce a money-making crop within
two years.
Most of the
pitted fruit will -
replace long-
established orange -
groves.
Farmers don't
typically make a
profit on new or-
ange plantings for
four to five years.
The farmer hires
24 full time em-
ployees and leases
large tracts of land
from property
owners. Clint Updike
"There's not
going to be a
town left in the county that won't have
peaches," said Updike.
Mercy Olmstead, assistant professor
of the horticultural sciences depart-
ment at University of Florida in Gaines-
ville, said the Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences had cultivated a
handful of peach varieties for growers
south of Interstate 4.
"Citrus is king and will continue to
be king in the state of Florida," said
Olmstead. "Peaches will not replace
citrus but is a good diversification for


the farm."
She said there are 24 different variet-
ies of peaches that can be grown in
Florida temperatures.
Updike said a year-old reset or new
tree will produce eight to 15 pounds of
fruit and a 2-year-old tree will yield 40-
50 pounds, or enough fruit within two
years to yield a quicker profit.
"It's like eating a tangelo," said Up-
dike. "You get dirty eating it."
Growing peaches in Polk County
is "a perfect fit" for the crop requir-
ing less chemicals and fertilizer than
citrus groves do, while using the same
irrigation system, said Updike. Updike
is one of several peach farmers in Polk
County, an industry that started here in
the 1990s.
Farmers are at risk. Updike said there
is no insurance available to Florida
peach farmers. Last year a hail storm
wiped out Updike's crop.
."It's a big, huge gamble we're mak-
ing here," said Updike about Sunshine
State peach farmers who have grown
the fuzzy fruit since the mid-1990s.
But the rewards can be high, said
Olmstead.
Florida peaches are the first domestic
ones on supermarket shelves, while
commanding two and a half times
higher prices than ones grown to the
north of the state line. Georgia peaches
are worth 80 cents a pound, while
Florida fruit collects $2 a pound.
Olmstead said that harvesting of
Florida peaches is delayed, with newly
developed varieties spending longer
on the tree than California fruit which
needs to be shipped longer distances.
More time on the tree results in a more
favorable, juicier peach, with more
sugar.
"Consumers are used to being able to

them."


access fruits and vegetables year round
in supermarkets, including apples and
celery," said Olmstead. "And consumers
have come to expect that from other
fruits and vegetables."
The new IFAS varieties of Florida


peaches require from 100-200 "chill
units" or hours of temperatures from
32 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
Polk County temperatures are suit-
able to create buds on trees and then
"kick start" developing fruit.

Polk may be going peachy


Peach farming shows


potential in this area


By CATHERINE PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
A year ago, former Polk County home
builder and real estate developer Sean
Harper made what could be a life-
altering decision. He opted to replace
frost-killed orange trees with Florida's
up-and-coming money crop:
Peaches.
He took the plunge when economic
pressures adversely affected the hous-
ing sales and production market.
"I had to look for other revenue
sources, and since my family had


always been farmers, I opted to go back
to my roots."
After many hours of research, Harper
wound up planting designer peaches
- two varieties genetically designed by
the University of Florida to flourish in
the state's center farmlands.
"We planted UF Sun and Tropic
Beauty, and, so far, they are doing real
well."
Harper's first 1,200 trees are divided
into orchards on Gandy Road and Gan-
dy Cemetery Road, just east of Bartow.
"We planted 1,200 in late spring of
last year," he says, "and now we are


expanding that to 2,400."
While you couldn't say this year's was
exactly a bumper crop, Harper said
his trees produced about 20 pounds
of fruit per tree, which he sold as U-
pick. He said the crop should steadily
increase as his trees mature. He
maintains his trees should double their
production this coming year and reach
the full production of about 90 pounds
of peaches per tree by 2015.
"We're hoping to sell commercially


this year as Sun Sweet Peaches," he
said, "but it will depend on the quantity
and quality of the crop."
Much of his crop was damaged by
hail storms in March, rendering it unfit
for commercial sale.
"But our U-pick was great. I just had
to explain to people that the cosmetic
damage was from the hail, not bugs."
Harper plans to sell his UF Sun

To the Phvoers h


happiness is caladiums


Family


has been farming


caladiums


for 40


years


By CATHERINE PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
Happiness is defined by Webster's
Dictionary as a pleasurable or satisfy-
ing experience.
Happiness Farms on County Road
621 East in Lake Placid is a Phypers
family, multi-generational operation
that helped define the small Highlands
County community.
About 40 years ago Paul Phypers, Sr.,
decided that flower farming wasn't for
him anymore and he leapt into growing
an unusual South American plant that
now claims Lake Placid as its capital of
the world.
Caladiums are a beautiful back yard
plant that had gone virtually unnoticed
by gardeners, because from all ac-
counts, it was not in plentiful supply.
In 1964, Phypers bought part of a
sod farm, added more acreage, and
Happiness Farms was born. It rapidly
became the largest caladium farm in
Lake Placid, and has been passed down
to Phypers' sons and their children.
Now at 400 acres, Happiness Farms
produces some 50 varieties of the hardy
bulb plants.
Happiness Farm's 40 employees start
the caladium process in April when the
caladiums are planted.
"They grow throughout the summer,"
Darlene Phypers explains, "and we har-
vest the bulbs in November and ship in
November and December."
The delicate leafy plants are pack-
aged on site and sold to garden centers,


The Phypers Family


brokers or direct to greenhouses, she
adds. Individuals also buy the bulbs at
the farm or via the company's website.
Lake Placid recently celebrated this
colorful leafed ornamental plant with
the annual Caladium Festival when
thousands of festival-goers take over
the community for one weekend every
August.
Darlene Phypers explains that part
of the caladium's appeal to gardeners
is the vast variety available. Her farm


grows 50 varieties, one of which was
developed by the senior Phypers. It is
called Galaxy because it resembles a
field of colorful stars, she says, and it
is quite rare. Only Happiness Farms
grows it and only six acres are set aside
for Galaxy production.
The colorful plants are grown in
large fields which have been compared
to the tulip fields in the Netherlands.
But keeping up those wonderful fields
hasn't escaped the recent economic


instability.
"The price of fuel has affected us the
most," Phypers says. "We have to keep
our greenhouses heated in the winter
and transportation costs have esca-
lated."
She explained that the operating
costs related to fuel have risen about 31
percent over the last several years.
"With that kind of increase, it limits

Cattle farming was heart of Florida economy


Still large but it has faded in the last century


By CATHERINE PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
Early Florida cowmen should not
be confused with the cowboys seen in
Western roundups and cattle drives on
Hollywood movie sets.
In the 19th century the cattle drives
started in March and lasted until Au-
gust. Cow camps were scattered over
the woodlands about one day apart.
They consisted of crude shelters and
log pens to gather wild cattle. The ani-
mals had to be flushed from the Florida
palmetto scrub and swamps with
whips, dogs, and horses.
The men who
accomplished
that difficult and
dangerous task
were known as
cow hunters.
Wolves, bears and
panthers fre-
quently spooked
the cattle and
killed strays. It
was a tough job
Moby Persing of Lake keeping the skit-
Wales tish wild cattle
together.
When artist Fredrick Remington vis-
ited Florida in the late 19th century he
produced several illustrations including
a Florida cowman, or cow hunter, with
his horse and dog.
Remington described a rough and
ragged lot that, in his opinion, did not
compare with the dashing, romanti-
cized cowboys of the West. In an article
published in the August 1895 issue of
Harper's New Monthly Magazine he
wrote: "... they are picturesque in their
unkempt, almost unearthly wildness."
During the Civil War Florida sup-
plied an estimated 50,000 head of
cattle to the Confederacy. The beef was
described as stringy and unappetiz-
ing, but was often the only source of
protein available to soldiers.
A tax roll dated 1862 indicates the
size and number of herds in Polk
County: John Lanier, 2,700 head; N.R.
Raulerson, 2,515 head; William Holden,
1,800 head; WH. Willingham 1,550
head; Berrian Platt, 1,015; J.M. Pierce,
830 head; John Skipper, 730 head; Al-
bert J. Hendry and George Washington
Hendry, 590 head.
Drovers pushed their range cattle
northward following old military roads.
They moved toward Gainesville, then
to rail lines at Baldwin, Atlanta and
Savannah. Cattle were driven north
from Central Florida prairies at the rate
of 600 a week from April to August. The


drive took about 45 days. A 700-pound
animal lost about 150 pounds in the
process.
A considerable number of cattlemen
supported the Union Army because
they could sell their cattle at Fort My-
ers for United States currency. Others
found ways to run the Union blockade
and sell their cattle to other countries.
By 1863, Union raiding parties and
Confederate deserters were hamper-
ing cattle drives, rustling more than
400 head. By early 1864, from Fort
Myers, Union soldiers were raiding up
and down the Peace River Valley. They
burned homes and other buildings,
destroyed crops, and took horses and
cattle and other supplies that would be
useful to the Union Army.
In Polk County a skirmish occurred
just south of Fort Meade. On April
7, 1864, the Little Battle of Bowlegs
Creek was fought between Co. B. 1st
Battalion, Fla. Special Cavalry, C.S.A.,
the "Cow Cavalry" and Company "A"
Second Florida Cavalry, U.S.A.
One Confederate soldier, Jim Lanier,
was killed and probably buried on site
in an unmarked grave.
Henry A. Crane, captain of Union
troops stationed
at Fort Myers,
stated in a let- ,
ter written April
13, 1864: "The
detachment sent
to Fort Meade in
my last had a fight
with the Rebs &
drove them from
the place Thurs-
day last destroy- The cattle industry has
ing all their stores been a part of Florida's
complete, & economy since the mid-
killing a leading 19th century.
Guerilla named
Lanier & rounding out several others
with horses & without any loss what-
ever."
In the 10-year period after the Civil War
an estimated 1.6 million head of cattle
were sold to the Spanish in Cuba. Span-
ish gold boosted Florida's economy at a
time when paper currency was virtually
useless.
With the coming of the railroads the
tradition of the cattle drive began to
fade away. The cattle trade with Cuba
began to die out in the early 1900s with
competition from Texas and South
America. Cattle were moved north by
rail to yards in St. Louis and Chicago.
For almost 500 years, the cattle indus-
try has contributed significantly to
Florida's economy and natural resourc-
es. Today, almost a quarter, perhaps 12

been a state.
million acres, of all Florida's acreage is
grazing land for an estimated 1,740,000
cattle. Nearly one-half of all Florida
agricultural land is involved in beef and
dairy production.
By the 1960s, due to many years of
introducing new breeds, and cross-
breeding with Brahman, Hereford and
Angus bulls, only a few examples of
historic Cracker cattle remained.
While there are more than 70 rec-
ognized breeds of cattle in the United
States, in Florida the vast majority of
cattle are either Brahman or some sort
of Brahman composite.
In 2005 Polk ranked as the fourth
largest cattle county in Florida with


nearly 100,000 head. Many of the
Florida ranches are cow-calf opera-
tions. Ranchers breed and raise calves
for six to 12 months.
When they reach about 400 pounds
they are auctioned and shipped out
west, closer to the Corn Belt, where
they grow to a finished size of around
1,100 pounds.
Florida cattle producers are "stew-
ards of the land" as owners and care-
takers of thousands of acres of pristine
native range and pasture land.
Multi-generational family ranches
have cared for the land, provided em-
ployment for residents and contributed
greatly to the local tax base.

Milking starts early and runs all day


It may be natural but


it also never ends


By CATHERINE PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
Freda Pirkle-Carey's day starts early.
4:30 a.m. to be exact. That's when the
first 18 of her 600 Holsteins head to the
barn to be milked.
By 4 p.m., she and her dairy staff will
have milked all 600 of her cows, tallied
up about 6,000 gallons of milk and
shipped it in a huge tanker truck.
And, that's every day. All 365 days a
year. Year in, year out.
But she's not in it alone.
Her husband, Mike, and, when they
are at home, her six kids help out.
"A dairy is a 24-hour operation,"
Freda says, "You can't turn the cows
off."
Freda and Mike Carey are the owners
and operators of the H.C. Dairy Farm in
the Winston area of North Lakeland.
The H.C. Dairy is the only active
dairy left operating in Polk County
today.
Mike bought the dairy in the 1970s
and the family has run the operation
steadily since then. They don't do it all
alone though. There are eight full-time
workers who help out, Freda explains.
She says it isn't just a matter of milk-
ing. It's a matter of cleaning the cows'
udders, cleaning the machines between
cows and maintaining the equipment
that pumps the expressed milk into
3,000-gallon chilling and holding tanks.
The milk is transferred to the tankers
for shipping to the Southeastern Milk
Cooperative which markets it.


"Running a dairy is a highly manual
job," Freda says. You have to drive the
cows to the barn, attach the milking
units, keep everything sanitized, check
to see if the milk is good, all of which
takes time. Then, each cow is attached
to the milking machines for five to
15 minutes, depending on the cow's
yield."
But it all starts with the cows, mostly
Holsteins.
Cows calve at about 2 years old, she
explains, and are bred again when their
calves are about 3 months old.
Bovine gestation periods are about
the same as for people, about nine
months. The milk production all
depends on the breeding cycle, she
explains. Cows are first bred when they
are about a year old, and usually con-
tinue their peak milk production until
they are about 5 years old.
Then, they are sold at market and
replaced, if not via market, then via
the dairy's in-house breeding program.
Freda handles that.
She sees that the cows are artificially
bred from the best available Holstein
gene pool to maintain the quality of the
herd. She says they artificially insemi-
nate the heifers with X-heavy semen,
which enhances the potential for
female calves.
"We do keep a few bulls, but mostly
we keep the females."
All but the very best of the best bull
calves are sold.
Keeping up with the economy is also
a chore, according to the dairywoman.


Freda Pirkle-Carey tends to a calf on the family's dairy farm.


While the price of milk is fairly stable,
the cost of production has escalated
recently.
"We feel the economic pinch in the
cost of fuel, the cost of corn, soybeans
and other feed and health maintenance
products," she says.
"It's constantly keeping up with


stuff," she says. But, she's no stranger to
that. She's had to keep up with hus-
band Mike and six children: three now
in college and a ninth grader still at
home.
When every day is done, Freda Pirkle-
Carey's still happy every time she hears:

If in the ag business,


is probably what you

They've usually got what small and big farmers need


need


By CATHERINE PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
For more than 22 years, many of
Polk County's farmers and ranchers,
whether big or small, have headed to
one place when they needed what their
own operation couldn't provide: Florida
Farm and Ranch Supply.
The Fussell family owns and operates
the agricultural supply store on State
Road 60 just east of Bartow and have
supplied premium goods for horses,
cattle, goats, chickens and almost any
other farm animals as well as domestic
pets from dogs and cats to rabbits.
The shelves are lined with food,
medicines, tack and even Western wear,
all aimed at Polk County's agrarian
consumer.
Gloria Fussell and her son Mike are
at the helm of the business with Mike
doing most of the day-to-day heavy lift-
ing, Gloria says.
The Fussells have served ranchers
in both Polk and Hardee counties for
generations and are also ranked among
the county's top ranchers as well. Mike
presently sits on the board of the Polk
Cattlemen's Association.
Gloria says that despite the national
economic downturn in recent years,
the farm and ranch supply business
has been "fairly stable.
"We have had some downs, but by
and large, our market has been pretty


good."
She and Mike maintain that regard-
less of the economy, "people still take
care of their animals."
Gloria said recently that ranchers or
small farmers may have cut down the
size of their herds or number of stock,
but Polk agriculture remains fairly
static.


Mike Fussell shows some horse feed at Florida
Farm and Ranch Supply.


"We've had some concerns about
the price of grain, which controls a
lot of our business," she added. "But,
people are always going to feed their
livestock."
Fussell explains that the increased
production of corn-based ethanol has
affected the availability of cattle and
horse feed, but has little effect on the


other products and merchandize found
in the store.
Mike also said while ranchers may
be cutting down on their stock, other
markets have opened up. He said that
backyard or small farms are expanding.

Clear Springs: A little of a lot all in one


Part farm, ranch, packing house, development company


and think tank


By CATHERINE PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
Clear Springs ... what is it? A farm?
A ranch? A packing house? A develop-
ment company? A think tank? Well, it's
all of the above.
Clear Springs, which took its name
from a defunct phosphate mine, is
unique in that it incorporates agri-
culture production, conservation and
economic development all under one
umbrella.
Its agricultural endeavors include
farming blueberries, strawberries,


and grape tomatoes. It also raises
cattle.
Clear Springs, the brain-child of
Connecticut entrepreneur Stanford N.
Phelps, started in 1999 with the pur-
chase of the old Clear Springs mine
land, some 18,000 acres wrapped
around Bartow, Polk County's seat of
government.
"Agriculture is an important part of
Clear Springs and will remain a land-
use priority," said Clear Springs Vice
President David Royal.
The mega-land holder re-
mained solely a land
S development company
for several years and only
branched into agriculture
pursuits in 2005 when
the ranching, strawberry
and blueberry operations
began, he said.
To make its future
easier, according to
Royal, Clear
Springs
spent two
years


Clear Springs' latest development east of
Bartow on State Road 60 is a joint endeavor
with Polk State College that will be for
educational purposes, future businesses and a
technology center.


drafting a sector plan which outlines its
future plans in one document avoiding
the need for a development of regional
impact (DRI) statement for each seg-
ment of the vast holdings.
In that plan, he adds, "Clear Springs
commits to only developing 21 percent
of the land, with the rest remaining
in agriculture, conservation and open
green space."
Kicking off Clear Spring's agriculture
endeavors was the establishment of its
360 acres of blueberries. Royal explains
there are 290 acres in regular settings,
20 acres of high density and 50 acres of
high density under development. He
adds that CS uses every possible means
of water conservation in all its agricul-
ture pursuits.
The farm consists of eight varieties
and every four rows have a different va-
riety to enhance pollination. A unique
part of the blueberry operation is that it
sits on an old clay settling pond aban-
doned after phosphate mining halted,
he said.
The blueberry operations are over-
seen by Jack Green, Jr., with assistance
from Jack Green, Sr., and Bill Braswell.
CS's strawberry operation is on 235
acres, and is starting its third season.
Also included in the strawberry op-
eration is the group's successful grape
tomato growing efforts.
To make it easier to market its crops,
in 2006 CS also purchased the old Sun-
Pac Citrus processing plant on Spirit
Lake Road.

"We took a plant that had been va-
cant for a number of years and turned
it into a state of the art packing house
and distribution center," says Royal.
"We've finished our fifth year of pack-
ing blueberries and our second year of
packing grape tomatoes. We brought
our strawberries here this past year to
distribute to the retail and wholesale
business we've built up.

Cooperative Extension Service


offers much to agricultural community

Service addresses range of ag, environmental science issues


By CATHERINE PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
What's that sprawling complex on
U.S. Highway 17 South in Bartow?
The Ag Center? The 4-H Club head-
quarters? The Youth Fair?


PHOTO BY MIKE CREECH
The Youth Fair is one activity the cooperative
extension service helps with. Here, Brianna
Jones of Bartow Middle School shows her hog
during the 2011 Polk County Youth Fair.


Yes, it is all of the above. It's techni-
cally the Polk County Cooperative
Extension Service and its seven-agent
staff addresses a wide range of agricul-
tural and environmental science issues
affecting the residents of the county.
The CES provides educational and
professional expertise and practi-
cal demonstrations of science-based
research in both agriculture and the
environmental sciences, according to
Director Nicole Walker.
"Our research is linked to the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences (IFAS)," Walker
says. "We develop educational pro-
grams based on research that address
critical issues like water quality, water
quantity, green space protection, natu-
ral resource conservation and life skills
for our youth."
The Extension Service offers work-
shops, classes, consultations and
demonstrations as well as educational
materials, she adds.
The Extension Service is the public
outreach component of IFAS where
experts relate research findings to daily
life.
The extension agents provide infor-
mation to agricultural and livestock
producers as well as the general public.
"We are a go-to information source
that takes what research shows us and
translates it into practical application
for the average person," she says.


Walker explains that the program was
originally part of the early 20th Cen-
tury Land Grant Program and included
education, research, and the extension
services.
In Florida and particularly in the
Heartland, the major emphasis is on
agriculture.
"Agriculture is a major economic
factor in Florida and particularly in this


area. We have a lot of different out-
reach programs that can help families,
the communities and our youth," she
explains.
The seven full-time agents work in
five disciplines: commercial livestock,
commercial citrus, small farms, urban
horticulture and landscape manage-

Smaller corn surplus could push food prices higher


By CHIP CUTTER

this year's corn
crop.

lion bushels of corn will be left over at
the end of next summer. The estimated
surplus is down from last month's
forecast and well below levels that are
considered healthy.
This spring, farmers planted the
second-largest crop since World War
II. But high temperatures stunted the
plants.
"We just didn't have a good growing
year," said Jason Ward, an analyst with
Northstar Commodity in Minneapolis.
"It was too hot, too warm, too dry at
the wrong time."
The price of corn was relatively un-
changed at $7.33 a bushel on Monday.
While that's down from its peak of
$7.99 reached in June, it's still nearly
twice the price paid last summer.
More expensive corn drives food
price; higher because corn is an ingre-
dient in everything from animal feed to
cereal to soft drinks. It takes about six
months for corn prices to trickle down
to products at the grocery store.
But mrnany food producers are already
being squeezed by the higher prices.
Chicken producer Sanderson Farms
Inc. reported its third straight
S, quarterly loss late last month, in
'*. part, because of increased costs
for feed. Smithfield Foods
I. Inc., the world's largest hog
producer, said last week that
i 4'V high feed costs would re-
main a problem this year.

ment and 4-H/youth development.
Taking priority in this area, she says,
is the small farms program.
"We, in Polk County, have the highest
number of small farms in the state," she
adds, saying a small farm is an agricul-
tural operation with less than $500,000
generated in a year. "We help small
farmers or those who want to start a
farm with a needs assessment and offer
information that can help their farm
become successful."
The Extension Service also shares a
nutrition program agent with Hillsbor-
ough County to help educate people on
how to provide better nutrition to their
families.
"There has been a resurgence of inter-
est in food preservation, so our agent
has been offering classes in canning
and preserving food," Walker explains.
The agents have already led three
classes in home canning this year, she
added.
4-H has always been a key segment of
the Extension Service's activities.
"We've always been known for our
4-H activities, but we teach the kids
much more than just how to raise a
steer or a hog," Walker says. "Our pro-
grams include nutrition, daily life skills
and other areas to help our youth grow
up to be productive citizens who con-
tribute to our overall quality of life."
While the Extension Service is closely
associated with the Polk County Youth
Fair, Walker says there is a separate en-
tity that organizes and runs the annual
event. She quickly adds, however, that
the Youth Fair has paid for most of the
facilities at the Ag Complex.
The 2012 fair is scheduled for Jan.
21-27.


Another of the service's well received
programs has been the Master Garden-
er program, Walker says.
"We've always had a lot of interest in
the gardening program and that contin-
ues," she said.
The 98-year old Extension Service is a
joint University of Florida and Board of
County Commissioners endeavor.
Walker says 60 percent of the pro-
gram is funded by the state with the
rest paid for by the county.
"That's the present funding scenario,"
she says, "but we also have grant funds
available to us."
Walker also says sister counties
Hardee, Highlands and DeSoto have
similar programs for the residents of
those areas.
Contact and program information
can be found on county and the Uni-
versity of Florida Institute of Food and
Agriculture websites. In Polk County,
inquiries may be directed to 519-8677.

and Consumer Services. "Once it be-
comes established, it becomes a huge
problem."
Feiber added that the fly may develop
an interest for other kinds of citrus or
other vegetables.
"You don't know how they're going
to behave in a new country or environ-
ment," Feiber said. "There are so many
unknowns. That's why we're taking this
so seriously."
The Aug. 23 discovery was only the
sixth time that a guava fruit fly was
found in Florida since 1991, including
one in Apopka and another in Oviedo
in 2001.
State inspectors have breathed a sigh
of relief because as of Friday, no other
guava fruit flies had been found since
they started the trapping program.
Still, the guava fruit fly tinier than
a housefly and not harmful to people -
is not considered as serious a threat as
the Mediterranean fruit fly, or Medfly,
which can damage a wider array of
crops.
In 1997, a Medfly outbreak in the
Tampa area spread to several other
counties, including Lake and northwest
Orange, and it took more than a year to
bring it under control.
It is likely the guava fruit fly snared
in Gotha made it into the state either
by latching onto a plant or fruit or by
hatching from eggs brought into the
country by an unknowing traveler.
This summer, the state and U.S.
agriculture departments and Homeland
Security launched a "Don't Pack a Pest"
campaign that encourages travelers
entering Florida to declare agriculture
items in an effort to prevent pesky
or harmful critters from invading the


state.
"So many times, travelers might have
an orange or a fruit in their baggage,
and they get to their destination and it
had an egg on it," Feiber said. "It's really
important to educate travelers."
It's likely the fly found on the tanger-
ine tree flew into the area from else-
where, according to state agriculture
inspectors.
Even so, inspectors with the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture recently visited
the west Orange County community to
ask property owners if they had previ-
ously traveled abroad or shopped at
local food markets.
"Early detection is our best line of
defense against these highly destructive
pests," Feiber said.
Resident Cynthia Logsdon, who owns
the tangerine tree, said she wasn't even
aware that a guava fruit fly was found
on her property until the inspector
visited her home. State officials said
"it is very unlikely" the fly originated
from her property. Neither Logsdon nor
anyone from her family traveled out of
the country recently, she said.
"It used to be a wonderful tree, but it
hasn't produced much fruit for a while,"
she said. "It's really half-dead."
The guava fruit fly is only the latest
worry Florida growers and farmers have
to contend with, on top of citrus green-
ing, canker and other harmful pests
and diseases.
"Our borders are so porous, and you
can't check everyone, and obviously
some slip through," said Nick Faryna of
Faryna Grove Care & Harvesting, which
manages about 1,800 acres of citrus in
north Lake County. "It's not malicious
on anyone's part. ... But it's a long list
of problems that we can't completely
control or eradicate."

PUTNAM: Playing an important role


FROM PAGE 2
Agricultural Sciences and the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture, allows neigh-
boring citrus growers to coordinate
efforts to control and minimize the
movement of the Asian citrus psyllid,
the source of citrus greening disease.
Participants in a CHMA coordinate
psyllid control sprays to minimize the
movement of psyllids between groves
and reduce the time needed before ad-
ditional sprays are required.


FOOD: Price may rise
FROM PAGE 19
because of the damaged crops.
Farmers are expected to have a sur-
plus of 920 million bushels when the
harvest begins this month, the USDA
said. That's roughly a 26-day supply
of corn, slightly less than the previous
month's estimate.
But the USDA said the corn surplus
could dwindle next fall to about a 19-
day supply. A 30-day supply is consid-
ered healthy.
When crop reserves are low, mar-
ket prices can jump quickly, said
Scott Irwin, an agriculture economics
professor at the University of Illinois.
When reserves are at adequate levels,
a decline in grain supplies tends to
cause prices to rise modestly. But when
reserves are unusually low relative to
demand, short-term supply disruptions
can cause prices to jump exponentially,
Irwin said.
In part, that's because unlike with
other goods, rising food prices gener-
ally don't cause people to buy less food.
Rather, they typically cut spending on
other things so they can keep the diets


In support of CHMA activities, the
Department conducts routine psyllid
scouting of each CHMA in three-week
intervals to provide real-time informa-
tion on psyllid populations.
The data is used to generate reports,
maps, graphs and charts, so growers
have the most up-to-date data before
making pest management decisions.
The Department also assists in strategic
planning and grower recruitment.
The Department also recently
completed the successful eradication


they're accustomed to. Prices tend to
stay high until demand finally slackens.
A smaller surplus drove corn prices
higher earlier this year. Global demand
for corn, soybeans and wheat has
outstripped production for the last 10
years. Surpluses, vital to a stable food
supply, have shrunk.


of the Mediterranean fruit fly in both
Palm Beach and Broward counties.
When medflies were detected in Febru-
ary 2011, the Department launched a
medfly eradication program to stop the
spread of this pest, which can have an
adverse impact on many crops within
Florida and beyond.
With more than 56,000 traps still in
place, the Department continues to
monitor our growing areas for invasive
pests that can have a devastating im-
pact on Florida's agriculture industry.
Other programs benefiting the citrus
industry include a 2010 appropriation
of $2 million by the Florida Legislature
to the Department for the construction
of a state-of-the-art citrus germplasm
introduction facility.


The new facility will increase ca-
pacity and reduce the time it takes to
make new citrus varieties available to
growers.
The location and design phases for
the facility are complete. Construction
should begin in September and will be
completed in early 2012.
The state's citrus nursery certification
program has been extremely success-
ful and will continue to evolve as new
pests and diseases modify structure
and management requirements. The
state currently has 63 registered citrus
nurseries 18 in Polk County and
nursery propagations have doubled
in four years, from nearly 1.5 million
in 2006 to more than three million in
2010.

PEACHY: Farming shows potential


FROM PAGE 7
peaches to the commercial market
since they are non-melting stone fruit,
which he explains means the fruit
doesn't separate from the pit as readily
as the Tropic Beauty does.
"The Tropic Beauty is a melting fruit,
which means it comes away from the
pit easily when ripe."
He plans to continue to sell the
Tropic Beauties as his U-pick crop.
Harper says it was an easy decision
to switch to the peach crop, since the
basics are the same as oranges.
"They take the same amount of irri-
gation and fertilizer as oranges, but are
much more labor intensive." He added,
"It takes about 10 times the labor," and


he spent hours and hours culling the
trees so individual peaches had room
to grow.
"You have to pick each tree while
the fruit is forming so the growth can
produce bigger fruit. It takes about 20
minutes per tree to do that, and I did it
myself this year. It took a lot of time to
pick 1,200 trees."
As one of Florida's up-and-coming
crops, the UF developed trees, he said,
are hard to come by.
"I have more trees under contract
and you have to order your trees about
a year in advance," he said.
Like citrus, the genetically developed
trees are grafted to root stock and he's
even grafting both varieties onto one
root, he says.


"It's going to be interesting this year,"
he added, "because I'll have some
trees with both varieties, so I'll have
some trees that will produce the whole
season. The UF Suns will come in first,
followed by the Beauties."
One local resident who picked fruit
in Harper's groves this year said both
varieties were excellent. "They made
great jam and an even better cobbler."
Presently, according to Harper, there
are 1,500 acres planted in peaches in
Central Florida, another 2,000 acres are
being planted.
"It takes about 10,000 acres to supply
just the Florida market, and that's the
goal. We want to supply local fruiit for
the local market."
Harper said he and other peach


farmers are in the process of forming
an association and may look to the
state Department of Agriculture for
help in marketing, too.
"We may see if they can help us with
that," he said.
While Harper's concentrating on his
peaches right now, he's also looking
at other niche crops. After attending a
small farmer conference recently, he
also is exploring two other potential
crops for former citrus land.
"We are looking at olives and pome-
granates," he said.
"This area is perfect for so many
kinds of crops, we just may try them
all."
But for now, for this Polk County
farmer, everything is just "peachy."


PHYPERS: Happiness is...
FROM PAGE 8
what we buy and how we use it."
She says that translates into slightly
lower wholesale sales, but homeowner
purchases don't seem to be as affected
by the escalating costs.
"The individual gardener still wants
to keep his garden beautiful and still
buys our plants to do that," she said.
The colorful tuberous plants pro-
vide a riot of color that is unrivaled in ',
Florida's Heartland.
And, to Darlene Phypers and the rest
of the Phypers family, that is what hap-
piness really is.


Workers tend the gorgeous plants.

CLEAR SPRINGS: A little of a lot


FROM PAGE 16
company also markets South American
fruit so blueberries are available in the
South and Eastern U.S. market for 10
months of a year.
"We also handle outside growers'
fruit and hope to expand the packing
house to a year-round operation in the
near future," Royal explains.
The packing house is more than
100,000 square feet of space that
provides areas for grading, packing,
pre-cooling, controlled temperature
storage, marketing and distribution. It
can store produce for up to six weeks.
Some 1,200 brood cows also call
Clear Springs land home. The cattle op-
eration started with just 100 head and


has steadily grown to the most recent
tally. Royal said initially Clear Springs
leased out a majority of its pastures,
but has since decided it could manage
it better and be more productive with
internal control. The present set-up is a
cow-calf operation with calves mar-
keted in the spring and fall.
Clear Springs has an employee roster
of about 50, which swells to 150 and up
to 900 depending on the crop and the
time of year, Royal says.
"These numbers will grow as we
grow," he adds.
While the agribusiness' major thrust
is in that arena, Royal says the com-
pany is also working closely with Polk
State College to develop a 348-acre
corporate park located on State Road


60 east of Bartow. The park is being de-
veloped for educational purposes, and
as a location for future businesses and
technology centers.
CS partnered with PSC to launch the
Advanced Technology Training Cen-
ter that will house the PSC Corporate
College along with a global university
center. CS donated $12 million and 20
acres of property to build the center.
The purpose is to attract innovative
high tech businesses that will create
high value products, highly skilled
workers and higher paying jobs.
Planning also is under way to de-
velop a 385-acre corporate research
park geared toward the development of
manufacturing facilities, distribution
centers and business services. Com-


panies locating in the park will benefit
from the collaboration of technology,
education and workforce training
within the educational centers planned
for the park and campus, according to
Royal.
Also under study is development
of larger industrial services with easy
access to air, sea, and rail transporta-
tion and clustered mixed-use residen-
tial areas with retail space, hotels and
restaurants.
