Agencies unite to urge Radon home testing


The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) joins with the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) in recognizing January as
Radon Awareness Month. The
observance aims to educate Florid-
ians about the dangers of exposure
to elevated indoor radon.
"Exposure to high levels of
radon has been shown to cause
several health complications,


including lung cancer," DOH Secre-
tary John O. Agwunobi, M.D.,
M.BA., M.PH. said. "I encourage all
Florida residents to protect them-
selves and their families through
proactive testing of radon, and by
addressing any hazards found."
Radon is a naturally occurring,
invisible, odorless, radioactive gas
emitted from soils. While outdoor
levels produce little risk, higher


concentrations found indoors can
create a potential health hazard.
According to the National
Academy of Sciences, radon is the
second leading cause of lung can-
cer, causing approximately 21,000
deaths nationwide each year. In
Florida, 750 residents died from
long-term radon exposure last
year.
To prevent dangerous radon


exposure, the DOH and EPA sug-
gest:
All homeowners test for
radon. Test kits are available at sev-
eral retail outlets and through
DOH-certified radon businesses.
DOH-certified radon contrac-
tors can also be hired to test homes.
Address any radon-related
problems immediately-this can be
done for a relatively low cost.


New homes should include
radon-resistant features which can
be installed by the builder-these
features are especially important
in areas reporting elevated radon
levels.
For more information on
radon, its health effects and testing
procedures call the DOH Radon
Hotline at 1-800-543-8279, or visit
www.doh.state.fl.us.

Governor proclaims 'Pace Believing in Girls day'


Celebrating 20 years of years
of helping girls find an opportu-
nity for a better future through
education, counseling, training
and advocacy
Since its founding in January
1985, PACE (Practical Academic
and Cultural Education) Centers
for Girls, a nationally recognized
non-residential program for girls
at risk of dropping out of school,
criminal involvement or who are
struggling for success, has
strived to reduce the numbers of
girls ages 8-18 entering the juve-
nile justice system.
In recognition of PACE's


twenty year dedication to
"Believing in Girls", Governor
Bush has bestowed this honor to
the statewide agency. While the
public may perceive Florida's
Juvenile Justice System as com-
posed of mostly males, nearly 30
percent of juveniles arrested in
Florida are female.
The harsh reality in Florida is
that girls now make up the
fastest growing segment of the
juvenile justice and criminal sys-
tem. In 2004 alone, PACE provid-
ed assistance to more than 2,360
girls, an increase of 15% since
2000-01.


Girls share many of the same
risk factors as males, yet they
typically come with additional
needs. More than three quarters
of the girls that attend PACE
exhibit risk factors in three out of
the four areas of poor school
performance, family conflict,
victimization, and personal
health and safety.
Moreover, growing up in
today's society, girls face issues
with self-esteem and sexual
abuse, and are often the victims
of violent crimes.
"At PACE, we deliver juvenile
justice programming built


around girls and young women
by helping them discover the
core of who they are and what
they hope to become," said Deb-
orah Panariello, Executive Direc-
tor of PACE Center for Girls Polk
County, "Girls need specialized
attention and direction in deal-
ing with issues like peer pres-
sure, self-image and goal-set-
ting."
The PACE Model
The PACE Model begins by
reducing the risk factors and
increasing the protective factors
in every girl's life. This is accom-


Lakeland's 9th Annual Pig festival


Lip Smackin' fun for the entire family


Over 20,000 individuals are
expected to experience the
ninth annual Lakeland Pig Festi-
val at Tigertown in Lakeland,
Florida, on Saturday, January 29,
2005, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sanctioned by the Kansas City
Barbeque Society and the Gover-
nor of Florida as a State of Flori-
da Barbecue Championship, Pig
Fest is a qualifier for the Ameri-
can Royal Invitational. It also
provides eligibility of the Jack
Daniels World Barbecue Cham-
pionship Invitational Pool.
Approximately one hundred
professional and "Back Yard"
contestants are expected to par-
ticipate.
The Grand Champion winner
of the Kingsford Professional
Division receives $2,500 (must
compete in all four categories of
chicken, ribs, pork and beef
brisket). Reserve Grand Champi-
on winner receives $1,500.
There is a total of $10,000 in


prize money that will be award-
ed to winners within the four
meat categories.
The Publix Backyard Division
showcases cook teams that
work together to generate great
barbecue. Many use special rubs
and their own sauces to create
mouthwatering entries that are
critiqued by officially sanctioned
Kansas City Barbecue Society
judges. The Publix Backyard
competition has created many
teams that have decided to turn
pro. Competing at this level is a
great way to test cooking meth-
ods against other teams to see
exactly who has the best Back-
yard barbecue.
There is no admission fee for
the event. Attendees can pur-
chase BBQ bucks to try food
from the various cooks. A crowd
of 20,000 is expected for this
year's Pig Festival. Major spon-
sors for the event include Publix
Super Markets Charities, Citrus


& Chemical Bank, Badcock &
More, Kingsford Charcoal,
Watkins Motor Lines, T. Mims
Corporation, COMANCO,
McDonald Construction and the
Junior League of Lakeland. The
,Pig Festival has generated over
$100,000 in contributions to
charitable organizations within
Polk County since 1997.
A certified barbecue judging
class will be held on Thursday,
January 27, 2005.. There will be
cooking classes/demonstrations
for the up and coming BBQ
champions; participants can test
their skills in real NASCAR simu-
lators; there will be live music at
the central sound stage; and an
interactive children's area.
There is even a Kids Q spon-
sored by Badcock Home Fur-
nishings & More. The Kids Q lets
young grill masters have a
chance at some friendly compe-
tition. Each participant in the
Kids Q receives a free grill that
they cook on for the event and a


$20 savings account with Citrus
S& Chemical Bank. There is cate-
gory for children 10 and under
and another category for older
children ages 11-15. All fires for
the Kids Q competitions will be
started by members of the Lake-
land Fire Department and they
will be on hand during the cook-
ing portion of the Kids Q compe-
tition.
Held at Tigertown located at
2220 N. Lake Avenue (off Lake-
land Hills Blvd.), the spring train-
ing facility for the Detroit Tigers,
the venue offers large space in a
central location with activities
for the entire family. For further,
information or to register as a
BBQ team, call the Junior
League of Lakeland at 863/666-

DOH recognizes January


as cervical cancer month


The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) recognizes January
as Cervical Cancer Month.
Screening for cervical cancer is
crucial because, with early detec-
tion, it is nearly 100 percent cur-
able.
"Worldwide, cervical cancer is
often the most common type of
cancer among women,"
Women's Health Officer Nancy
Humbert, A.R.N.P, M.S.N., said.
"We are committed to supporting
cervical cancer screening to
reduce the effect of this disease
for all. We encourage women to
be proactive in its detection."
Each year, approximately
15,000 women in the United
States learn they have cancer of
the cervix. The American Cancer
Society reports that between 60
and 80 percent of American


women with newly diagnosed
invasive cervical cancer have not
had a Pap test in the past five
years and may have never had
one. The unscreened population
groups include older women, the
uninsured, ethnic minorities
(especially Hispanic women,
African Americans and Asian
Americans), and poor women,
particularly those in rural areas.
Since the early 1970s, howev-
er, incidence of and mortality
from cervical cancer have
declined nearly 40 percent, due in
large part to early detection
through increased use of the Pap
test. A simple, painless procedure
that detects abnormal cell growth
in and around the cervix, the Pap
test can be performed in a doc-
tor's office or health clinic. Often,
such cell changes can be treated

Wise named

'Realtor of

the Year'
The Frostproof Chamber of
Commerce is proud to announce
that Wesley Wise has been
named Lake Wales Realtor of the
Year. Wesley, 54, started his real
estate career just four years ago
after working in the institutional
food business, selling products to
restaurants and schools. Wesley
was shocked to find out that he
was awarded the award due to
the fact that he has only worked
for Sullivan Real Estate four years.
The decision to go into real
estate, Wise said, is one that's
paid off.
The Frostproof area Chamber
is proud of Wesley Wise and Sulli-
van Real Estate for this Honor.
For information on the Frost-
proof Area Chamber of Com-
merce call 635-9112.

Edfors named Head


Volleyball Coach


Tim Edfors, an alumni of
Webber International Universi-
ty, will take over the position of
Head Volleyball Coach for the
Warriors. Edfors brings 15
years of coaching experience.
During his time in the coach-
ing ranks, he has worked with
many levels of athletes ranging
from beginners at the age of 12
to working with the Florida
Gators volleyball team. Over
the past two years, Coach
Edfors has held the position of
Assistant Coach for the South
Florida Community College
volleyball program. At SFCC,
he has helped raise the volley-
ball program to the next level;
they have enjoyed two very
successful seasons.
With all of his experience


Every


Counts.


and energy, Edfors plans to
motivate the Warriors to work
hard and take pride in the pro-
gram. When this is accom-
plished, he feels the team will
start showing the victories he
expects on and off the court.
As a former teacher of seven
years, Edfors demands his
team to be more successful in
the classroom than on the
court; while saying this, he will
settle for nothing less than
their best on the court. Edfors
believes that his three
strongest strengths are: com-
munication skills, experience
and ability to motivate. Coach
Edfors expects to see big
things over the next few years
for the WIU volleyball pro-
gram.

Request for funding for



tobacco control programs


The American Lung Association
of Florida; Inc. (ALAF) called on
Governor Bush and the Fldrida
Legislature to address the lack of
funding for tobacco control pro-
grams. Florida, which once had a
nationally acclaimed tobacco con-
trol program, earned an "F" in
Tobacco Prevention and Control
Spending, an "F" in Cigarette
Taxes, a "D" in Youth Access and a
"B" in Smokefree Air, according to
the American Lung Association's
State of Tobacco Control 2004
report issued recently.
"Despite the high economic and
human costs of smoking, the Flori-
da Legislature has failed to enact
strong tobacco control policies to
protect the health, and ultimately
the lives, of its citizens," said ALAF
President Belle DeKoff. "Florida's
low grades illustrate our need for
immediate action on the part of our
Legislature."
Tobacco Prevention
and Control Spending: F
Due to the lack of funding over
the last two years, Students Work-
ing Against Tobacco (SWAT) has
been forced to reach out to Flori-
da's youth through grassroots
efforts and rely mainly on volun-
teers to keep the Truth movement
alive. Every day, 6,000 children
tinder the age of 18 smoke for the
first time and nearly 2,000 of them
become established daily smokers.
SWAT is working to decrease those
numbers, but cannot do it alone.
"Proper funding of tobacco
control programs is imperative for
the health and safety of Florida's
youth," said Adrian Abner, former
leader of SWAT. "It is extremely
important that our policymakers
understand these programs posi-
tively affect Florida's youth, and in
turn, Florida's future."
According to the Florida Depart-
ment of Health, when the Florida
Tobacco Control Program was prop-
erly funded from 1998 to 2002, high
school smoking rates were reduced
by 35 percent and middle school
smoking rates reduced by50 percent.

Cigarette Taxes: F
One option for funding for the
Florida Tobacco Control Program
would be an increase in the ciga-


rette excise tax. Florida's tax rate
has remained at its current level-
0.339 cents per pack of 20-since
1990. The state is ranked 41st in the
nation, one of the lowest in the
country. More than 17 states have a
tax rate of one dollar or more,
including Rhode Island at $2.46.
"A high cigarette tax prevents
tobacco companies from creating
future generations of smokers by
making cigarettes too expensive for
kids to buy them," said ALAF Assis-
tant CEO Brenda Olsen, R.N. "The
tax will also supply the needed rev-
enue to consistently fund tobacco
control programs."
Comprehensive tobacco pre-
vention and control programs
include programs aimed at pre-
venting teens from starting to
smoke, providing cessation servic-
es to current smokers and imple-
menting effective media cam-
paigns to counter the marketing
tactics of the tobacco industry.
Youth Access: D
Many studies have found that
making it as difficult and inconven-
ient as possible for kids to get their
hands on cigarettes reduces the
number of youngsters who smoke.
Currently, about half of all young
smokers report they usually buy
their cigarettes directly from retail-
ers or vending machines, or by giv-
ing money to others to purchase
the cigarettes.
"The earlier a smoker starts, the
more likely he or she is to die from
tobacco use," Olsen said. "Acknowl-
edging youth access as an important
component of a comprehensive
tobacco control policy is critical."
Enactment and enforcement of
policies to restrict the sale and dis-
tribution of tobacco products to
minors has been shown to be an
effective component of a compre-
hensive tobacco program.

Smokefree Air: B
According to the Centers for Dis-
ease Control, secondhand smoke
contains a complex mixture of
more than 4,000 chemicals. In fact,
more than 50 of the chemicals are
cancer-causing agents (carcino-
gens). An estimated 3,000 lung
cancer deaths and 35,000 coronary
heart disease deaths occur annual-
ly among adult nonsmokers in the


United States as a result of expo-
sure to secondhand smoke.
Florida has made significant
strides in improving the indoor air
quality by enacting the Clean Indobr
AirAct, which took effectJuly 1, 2003.
"Florida's residents and visitors
are healthier because of the Clean
Indoor Air Act," said Richard Thur-
er, M.D., professor at the University
of Miami School of Medicine arid
lung health advocate. "This Act is
an example of positive legislation
benefiting the everyday lives of mil-
lions of Floridians."
Despite worries the ban would
have negative effects on the econo-
my, numerous studies have shown
that smokefree air laws have either
no effect or a positive effect on the
economy. This past summer, a study
by the Bureau of Economic and Busi-
ness Research at the University of
Florida suggests Florida's statewide
smokefree law has not hurt sales or
employment in the hotel, restaurant
and tourism industries.

Methodology
The American Lung Association
State, of Tobacco Control 2004 is a
report card that evaluates federal
and state tobacco control laws
against recognized criteria and
translates each state's relative
progress into a letter grade of A, B,
C, D, or F. A grade of A is assigned to
excellent state policy, while an F
indicates inadequate state laws.
The complete methodology and
score calculations are included in
the report and can be found online
atwww.lungusa.org.
Founded in 1916 to fight tuber-
culosis, the American Lung Associ:
ation of Florida is the lead organiza-
tion in the state working to prevent
lung disease and promote lung
health. Lung disease death rates
continue to increase while othef
leading causes of death have
declined. The American Lung Asso-
ciation of Florida funds vital
research on the causes of and treat-
ments for lung disease. With the
generous support of the public, the
American Lung Association of
Florida is "Improving life, one
breath at a time." For more infor-
mation about the American Lung
Association of Florida log onto
