Cold weather


As the temperatures fall,
Floridians find themselves cop-
ing with colder conditions than
they are used to.
While South Florida residents
rarely have to deal with freezes,
temperatures in the 40s and 50s
can bring health and safety risks.
Some tips for getting through
Floridians temporary cold spells:
It doesn't have to be below
freezing for a person to develop
hyperthermia, especially if you
are wet. There have been cases
of boaters in South Florida suf-
fering from hypothermia after
falling into 60 degree water.
While it is always important for
boaters to take proper safety pre-
cautions, in cool weather, it is
vital that a boater have a tele-
phone or radio available to call
for help if necessary.

The Frostproof News, Thursday, February 10, 2005


Bronson announces increased wildfire threat


Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson announced
an elevated wildfire threat in Flori-
da forests damaged by the 2004
hurricanes.
"From Naples to Pensacola,
many once-scenic stands of trees
are now tangled masses of trunks
and limbs," Bronson said. "This
additional debris will make wild-
fires more difficult to control and
more dangerous for our firefight-
ers."
SMany trees damaged by high
winds or inundated by heavy
rains are expected to 'die from
insect and disease infestations
over the next two years. This sce-


nario, combined with tinder-dry
grasses and frost-damaged brush,
means conditions in Florida are
conducive to an active wildfire
season. Bronson is urging people
who visit parks or forests to be
especially careful with lighted
materials, such as cigarettes.
In addition, smoke from wild-
fires can contribute to reduced
visibility on the highways.
"The best decision is to not
drive in poor visibility," Bronson
said. "But, if smoke or fog is
encountered on the highway,
motorists should slow down, turn
on the low-beam headlights and
remain alert."
When visibility deteriorates to


the point that continued travel is
unsafe, motorists are advised to
pull all the way off of the roadway
and turn on their emergency
flashers until the smoke subsides.
Bronson is also reminding
people to be very careful when
burning yard trash outdoors. Out-
door burning to reduce yard trash
and household paper products is
allowed in most Florida counties
(daylight hours only) provided the
fire is enclosed in a noncom-
bustible container or excavated
pit and covered by a metal mesh
or grill. The fire must be located
away from any occupied build-
ings and any nearby woodlands
and must be attended at all times.


Residents are urged to contact
their local Division of Forestry
office to find out if weather condi-
tions make outdoor burning
unsafe.

Wildfires can occur through-
out the year in Florida, but the
most active part of the wildfire
season is usually from January
through May. Florida averages
about 5,000 wildfires each year.
Since January 1, Florida has expe-
rienced 191 wildfires that burned
1,547 acres. Many of those fires
were the result of escaped out-
door yard trash burning.

egable. We hope even more peo-

recital of the season Feb. 22.

add to the hearts and flowers
theme of Valentine's Day for you
and your Valentine with love songs
from the Old and New World. Stroll
hand in hand on the winding gar-
den paths enjoying the flowers in
bloom while listening to the caril-
lon music.

dens bathed in moonlight. .

day," said De Turk, "I plan to*

dent, in addition to music appropri-
ate to a dreamy, moonlit night."

Cat scratch disease is quite common in humans


An adorable kitten shows up on
the front door step and your young
daughter falls instantly in love. They
become inseparable playmates. A
few weeks later while helping her
get dressed for school, you notice a
red bump on her arm inside what
appears to be a scratch mark. A
week later, you discover a lump
under her arm.
A scenario like this could mean
your child has contracted cat
scratch disease, a condition that is
not serious in most cases unless
you have an impaired immunity
resistance to disease, says Dr. John
August, a professor in the College
of Veterinary Medicine & Biomed-
ical Sciences at Texas A&M Univer-
sity.
"Cat scratch disease is a disease
of people rather than cats, and is
caused by an organism that lives in
the blood stream of some cats,"
August says. "It is transmitted to
people by scratches, and from cat
to cat by fleas."
People can become infected.
with the organism when a cat's
claw.is infected with flea dirt or flea
droppings; which is the excretion
of fleas, and that contaminated
material is inoculated into a
scratch, according to August.
Cat scratch disease is almost
always caused through scratches
and not bites, says August, so the


most important way to prevent this

disease in people is good flea con-
trol.
"A combination of newer topi-
cal insecticides applied monthly
and year-round is recommended
for effective flea control,"'August
says, "and in houses that are
already infected, people should ask
their exterminator to do a flea con-
trol program."
August adds that in warm parts
of the world like Texas, between 25
to 40 percent of cats are infected
with the organism known as Bar-
tonella henselae, which is the most
common cause-of cat scratch dis-
ease.
"Fortunately, although lots of
cats are infected, the incidences of
cat scratch disease in people are
quite uncommon," August
explains. "So, many people get
scratched without ever contracting
the illness." The people who are
most likely to get the illness are:
People who handle cats a lot,
like veterinarians
Children who play with kittens
who have fleas
People who have impaired
immunity and resistance to dis-
ease, such as HIV or someone
undergoing cancer chemotherapy
Typical signs and symptoms of
cat scratch disease include a pus-
tule or reddening within the scratch


about a week or so after the
scratch; and within the next week
or 10 days, the lymph glands near-
est to the scratch become enlarged
and tender, says August. Some peo-
ple will have. flu-like symptoms
such as fever and muscle aches.
"Anybody who thinks they might
have cat scratch disease should see
their physician to get advice about
treatment," recommends August.
"The symptoms will go away by
themselves in most people, but
antibiotics are available to help
shorten the duration of the illness."
August recommends that peo-
ple continue to enjoy cats a pets,
but to also remember that good
flea control is an important well-
ness procedure for any cat.
"Good flea control will mini-
mize the chances of this disease
happening in people," August
stresses. "Also, if somebody has a
very impaired immunity to disease,
for example is on cancer
chemotherapy or is infected with
ilyV and wants to adopt a new cat,
they should talk to their veterinari-
an about what cat would be safest
for them since this disease and
other diseases are more severe in
people who have poor immunity."

It was a good thing the
Wild Shiners 'Skool of
Crazy Fish' float was the
last entry in the Lake
Wales 2005 Mardi Gras
Parade in the final
stretch of the parade
route it broke down
(briefly!) and needed to
be pushed down Park

Wild Shiners and spec-
tators didn't let that hin-
der their good time, the
entertainment and
beads kept rolling.

2005 Lake Wales Mardi Gras Parade


If you were looking for the ace of spades
you wouldn't have found it Saturday, at the
Lake Wales Mardi Gras parade, just the
Queen of Hearts was present.

Staff photo/Cindy Monk
The Lake Wales Police weren't the only City officials at the Mardi Gras Parade last Satur-
day. Members of the LW Fire Department also enjoyed the festivities.


It looked like a jungle at the LW Mardi Gras parade on Saturday, February 5, the float of
Later Gators Krewe had a Swamp theme full of monkeys, birds and yes, even a gator!


Four year old Katelyn Hodges was ready for Jewell was sporting her Mardi Gras attire
the Lake Wales Annual Mardi Gras Parade dressed in a purple shirt and beads. She
held Saturday, February 5th. She had rain- looks like she's been to a few parades in the
bow hair and cheered on the parade with past. Proud owners of Jewell are Debbie &
her horn. Billy Crow.


Lake Wales Mardi Gras brings out thousands of spectators of all ages each year. Enjoying
their weekend off these FMSHS students attended the annual parade last Saturday.


Left, Beads! Beads! Beads!
This Krewe member of
Mystic Krewe of Rex was
busy passing beads and
kisses out on the parade
route. I received both while
I was attending the LW
Mardi Gras parade last Sat-
urday.


Right, it was
party time for
many at the
Lake Wales
Mardi Gras
this group of
young folks
were full of
smiles, song,
and dance and
beads.
