WS College holds ceremony

Groundbreaking held for new Residence Halls


Warner Southern College
hosted a groundbreaking cere-
mony for construction of new
student housing on Tuesday,
April 26. The event took place
just south of the Cleary Center
on the college's west campus.
President Greg Hall led the
program. Doris Gukich, Vice
President of Advancement,
Brian Harvey, President of the
Student Government Associa-
tion, Faith Brown, Vice Presi-
dent of the Student Govern-
ment Association, and Rob
Quam, Warner Southern
Trustee and alum who is Exec-
utive Director of the Lake
Wales Care Center, also partic-
ipated in the groundbreaking.


A $1.3 million dollar gift
from an anonymous donor
received earlier this year
launched the campaign for
student housing. President
Hall said, "We are enormously
grateful to the individual who
gave this very generous gift,
which will fund the initial
phase of our building cam-
paign for new student hous-
ing. Plans are set to construct
the first of three cluster-hous-
ing units arranged in town-
house style."
President Hall broke
ground first with a 'historic'
shovel, the same one that was
used to break ground in 1997
for the Rigel Student Center


and in 1999 for the Pontious
.Learning Resource Center.
"I'm very excited to see
what the new dorms will look
like," said Shelly Godefrin, jun-
ior. "Being able to see that it is
actually happening is very
encouraging."
Rachel Peacock, senior, is
glad that construction is
underway, even though she
won?t be able to enjoy the
dorms herself.
"It's another step in making
student life at Warner South-
ern better," she said.

The Senior High Officers

tional closing ceremony.


Polk school officials are voic-
ing opposition to the House of
Representatives Education Bud-
get that could lower Polk Coun-
ty's funding from the state.

Background
In 2004-2005, the calculation
for determining funding to local
school districts changed as a
result of a state study that
revealed medium-sized counties
like Polk were under funded
compared to larger counties.
Large counties received an aver-
age of $500. more per student
than medium-sized counties.
The study centered on the dis-
trict cost differential.
The district cost differential
(DCD) is an important part of
our state funding formula for
schools. It is designed to provide
equity in funding among school
districts so each child can be
offered the same level of quality
of education.
Districts whose funding was
lowered as a result of the calcu-
lation used in 2004-05 were
given transitional dollars. These
districts have requested twice as
much transitional funding this
year. They have mounted a legal
challenge to the DCD calcula-
tion, which is pending in state
court.

This Year's
Proposals
The House Budget contains
over $44.5 million in transitional
supplement dollars and requires
that if these funds are not allo-
cated, the state must return to
the method of calculating the
DCD used prior to 2004-05. Pre-
dictably, much of the support for
this provision comes from the
large counties.
The Senate Budget utilizes


the DCD calculation adopted for
2004-05, and contains an alloca-
tion designed to equalize discre-
tionary millage levied by school.
districts with state dollars. This
allocation would benefit Polk
County.
According to Wendy Hosk-
ing, legislative liaison for Polk
County schools, legislators rep-
resenting Polk County citizens
have advocated vigorously for
equitable ,education funding.
"Our Polk County delegation has
remained solid in its support of
last year's DCD change which
strengthens the equity of fund-
ing formula," Hosking said.
Hosking noted that state Sen.
J.D. Alexander, R-Lake Wales,
Senate Education Appropria-
tions Chair, is maintaining his
support and continues to fight to
maintain last year's funding for-
mula.
"Last year's study identified a
need for change so that the for-
mula was fair and equitable for
all students throughout Florida,"
said Kay Fields, Polk School
Board Chair. "To revise it would
undo all of the hard work and
would be detrimental for us."
"These are operational funds
earmarked toward teachers'
salaries," said Dr. Gail McKinzie,
Polk Schools Superintendent.
"These are essential funds to our
budget."
"The delegation did diligent
and hard work last year on this
issue," said Polk School Board
member Jack English who
served as board chair last year.
"It is not fair that bigger more
populated counties will have an
edge when our cost for things
such as textbooks and buses is
the same as theirs. Last year's
work fixed the inequities and it
does not make sense to go back
to an unbalanced system."

Citrus crop estimates decline Classifieds work!


On April 8 the U.S. Department
of Agriculture (USDA) released
the April citrus crop forecast for
the 2004-2005 season, showing a
decrease from the March esti-
mate.
The USDA now expects the
state's orange crop to produce
151.2 million boxes during the
2004-05 season, a decrease of 1.8
million from March. Bookkeeping
adjustments reconciling the Early-
Mid forecast with final harvest
data of 79.2 million boxes for
those varieties accounted for the


entire 1.8 million boxes. The
Navel estimate of 2.5 million
boxes that is included in the Early-
Mid estimate was unchanged
from the March estimate.
The Grapefruit estimate
remains steady at 13 million
boxes, with white Grapefruit
increasing 500,000 boxes to 3.5
million and colored Grapefruit
decreasing 500,000 boxes to 9.5
million boxes. For specialty fruit,
the USDA predicts 650,00 boxes
of Temples; 1.55 million boxes of
tangelos; and 4.45 million boxes


of tangerines, including 2.45 mil-
lion boxes of early varieties and 2
million boxes of Honeys.
The Florida citrus industry has
a $9.1 billion economic impact to
the state, employs nearly 90,000
people and covers 750,000 acres
in the state.
Florida Citrus Mutual, founded
in 1948, is the state's largest citrus
grower's organization with more
than 11,000 grower members. For

Bronson responds to Court decision


TALLAHASSEE-Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles Bronson says he
is pleased the Florida Supreme
Court has issued a ruling in a cit-
rus canker eradication compen-
sation case that has been before
the justices for more than two
years.
Bronson says the case,
Patchen vs Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer
Services leaves intact the court's
previous opinion which upheld
the constitutionality of the citrus
canker eradication program. The
Florida Supreme Court ruling
also upholds section 581.1845,
which was added to the statute
to provide compensation to eli-
gible homeowners. The court
pointed out that the 2002 statute
"clearly intends that the petition-
ers be included within the home-
owners covered by section
581.1845 (2)." The plaintiff in
this case, Brian Patchen is eligi-
ble for a $100 Shade Florida
voucher for the first citrus tree
removed and $55.00 cash pay-
ment for every subsequent tree
removed from the property.
The Supreme Court ruling
overturned a decision from the
3rd District Court of Appeals that
indicated residential citrus trees
within 1900 feet of infected ones
were not due compensation. It
also sends the case back to a trial
court for further proceedings.
"The Department has a con-
stitutional duty to eliminate plant
pests and diseases from Florida,"
Bronson said. "Legal delays and
hurricanes have resulted in the
spread of this terrible disease
and we must focus our efforts on
eradication. The courts are the
proper venue for any additional
interpretation of this ruling."
The Department in coopera-
tion with the United States
Department of Agriculture
(USDA) has been involved in the
citrus canker eradication effort
since 1995. Citrus canker is a


bacteria which causes prema-
ture fruit and leaf drop, weakens
citrus trees making them more
susceptible to other diseases and
scars the fruit.
The Department anticipates
completing the eradication of all
known infected and exposed cit-
rus trees by July of next year.

Once eradication is declared, a
two year waiting period is
required before citrus can be
replanted. The CCEP has
removed more than 720,000 resi-
dential citrus trees and more
than 3.2 million commercial
trees during the eradication
effort.

TALLAHASSEE-Florida
Department of Health (DOH) offi-
cials remind Floridians that
although skin cancer is the most
common of all cancers, it is also
one of the most preventable.
Today, May 2nd, is designated by
the American Academy of Derma-
tology (AAD) as "National Skin
Self-Examination Day" and
"Melanoma Monday" to raise
awareness about melanoma and
encourage Americans to begin a
lifelong habit of regular skin self-
examination.
"There are safe ways for resi-
dents and visitors to enjoy the Sun-
shine State's natural wonders
while protecting themselves from
overexposure to the sun and harm-
ful UV rays," DOH Secretary John
0. Agwunobi, M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H.,
said. "Before heading to Florida's
beaches, trails or simply for an
afternoon at the community park,
be sure to apply sunscreen with an
SPF of at least 15, and follow the
manufacturer's recommenda-
tions."
According to the American Can-
cer Society, most of the more than
one .million cases of non-
melanoma skin cancer diagnosed
yearly in the United States are sun-
related. Melanoma, the most seri-
ous type of skin cancer, will
account for about 59,600 cases of
skin cancer in 2005 and most
(about 7,800) of the 10,600 deaths
due to skin cancer. As seen at the
national level, age-adjusted inci-
dence rates for melanoma in Flori-
da increased from 1981 to 2001.
However, the age-adjusted mortali-
ty rates for melanoma declined
over the ten-year period from 1991
to 2001. More than 3,000 new
melanoma cases are reported each
year to the statewide cancer reg-
istry, the Florida Cancer Data Sys-
tem.
The American Cancer Society
recommends that individuals
check for possible melanomas by
carefully examining all moles and
birthmarks, and look for signs by
remembering the "ABC's" of possi-
ble melanoma: Asymmetry, Bor-
der irregularity, Color variation,
Diameter greater than a pencil
eraser and Enlargement. See a doc-
tor if self-examination results in any
suspicious areas on the skin.
Exposure to the sun's ultraviolet
(UV) rays appears to be the most
important environmental factor in
the progression of skin cancer. This
makes skin cancer a largely pre-
ventable disease when sun protec-


tion measures against UV rays are
used consistently. People can take
many simple steps to plan ahead
and protect,themselves from the
sun's UV rays. These options are
important to use all year round.
To protect yourself:
*e Seek shade under a tree,
umbrella or shelter
Cover up with lightweight
clothing
Wear a hat to protect your
face, scalp, ears and neck
*Apply sunscreen liberally with
at least a sun protection factor
(SPF) of 15, and reapply at least
every two hours or after swimming
Wear sunglasses that deter

UV rays, which can cause cataracts
Individuals particularly sensi-
tive to the sun, may want to avoid
exposure between the peak sun
hours of 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM (even
on cloudy days)
. The Florida Department of
Health encourages individuals to
not only protect their skin, but to
also get screened for skin cancer.

'Magic' diet pills can be dangerous Obituary


The diet pill industry just
doesn't' give up. They know the
American consumer dreams of a
magic pill that will let them shed
pounds without any lifestyle
changes. Every time I turn on
the television someone is trying
to convince me to send money
for a revolutionary diet pill.
Over the years, some of these
diet pills have been found to
have very dangerous even life
threatening side effects. But as
one diet pill is banned, the mar-
keters find something else to
push on the consumers.
Diet pills can help you shed
pounds but side effects could
be more dangerous to your
health than the extra pounds
were. Others simply lighten your
wallet.
Most nutritionists and doctors
agree that the only healthy way
to lose weight is to exercise and
eat a healthy, balanced diet.
Dozens of diet books are printed


A
Healthier
Life \


with Katrina Esken


each year with that same mes-
sage, each with their own gim-
mick.
Before starting on any new
diet, discuss your plan with your
doctor. Make sure the diet is safe
for you. Diets are not "one size
fits all." There may be some
foods that you should avoid or
some you should consume -
due to your own health prob-
lems. This is especially impor-
tant if you are on any prescrip-
tion medications. Some drugs.
interact badly with foods that


would otherwise be considered
"healthy."
Book publishers often send'
me diet books to review. I found
an interesting theory in "The
New Enzyme Catalyst Diet." This
book claims that overweight
people are just too well organ-
ized and efficient. They don't
have to move very much
because they have organized
everything at their fingertips.
The book actually suggests mov-
ing things around to make it less
convenient for example, stor-
ing pots and pans in the bed-
room to force yourself to get
up and walk around more!
I have no intention of rear-
ranging my house to make it less
convenient. (1 had'enough of
that.after last year's hurricanes.)
But it is nice to think that losing
my car keys on a regular basis -
and running around the house
in a panic.looking for them is
at least burning calories!

FWC to expand hunting program


TALLAHASSEE In Tallahas-
see last week, the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) voted to move
forward in developing a process
to expand statewide, a registra-
tion program for deer-dog hunt-
ing on private lands for the 2005-
06 hunting season.
Commissioners based the deci-
sion on the overall success of a
pilot program in the Northwest
Region during the 2004-05 hunt-
ing season.
According to a report present-
ed to the seven-member Com-
mission by Lt. Col. Mike Wiwi,
deputy director of the Division of
Law Enforcement, Commission-
ers determined that adopting
rules torequire deer-dog registra-
tion statewide could help main-
tain the traditional sport by reduc-
ing conflicts between hunters
and landowners.
FWC staff reported the addi-
tional time and costs associated
with the pilot program were
manageable. Due to the pro-
gram's effectiveness in address-
ing conflicts between landown-
ers and deer-dog hunters, and the


positive feedback received from
everyone involved, including law
enforcement personnel, FWC
staff recommended statewide
-expansion with no significant
rule changes.
The report stated that 70 indi-
vidual properties representing 57
deer-dog hunt clubs participated
in the Northwest Region pilot
program. These properties
ranged in size from 40 to 31,000
acres and were located in 14 of
the 16 counties within the region.
Only Escambia and Franklin
counties were not represented,
because they did not have any
registered deer-dog hunting
clubs.
During the past hunting sea-
son in the Northwest Region,
there were only 87 deer-dog
hunting complaints, down 36
percent from.137 during to the
2003-04 hunting season. More
importantly, only five of these 87
complaints were associated with
registered deer-dog hunting
clubs. In contrast, a review of the
complaint data for the North Cen-
tral and Northeast regions, which
did not have such a program, did


not show a decrease.
This proposed program would
require a no-cost registration for
anyone.using deer-dogs statewide
during the deer-dog training sea-
son and during any open deer-
hunting season when taking deer
with dogs is permitted.
Wiwi said verifying ownership
of participating properties in
cases where someone other than
the landowner is applying was
one of the few components need-
ed to improve the program.
The FWC will focus on mak-
ing sure the public is fully
informed about the new registra-
tion program by doing a compre-
hensive mail-out to all involved
parties. The agency also plans to
solicit input and feedback during
future public meetings that will
take place in May. All comments
submitted at these public meet-
ings, along with a final report, will
be on the agenda for considera-
tion at the FWC's June 15-17
meeting in Daytona Beach.
More information about the
proposed statewide deer-dog reg-
istration program is available
online at MyFWC.com/hunting.

Crist. "We look forward to this
bill being heard by the full Sen-

"forcible felony violator" to
cover any probation violator
who has a forcible felony in his
or her past. This group of pro-
bation violators could not be
granted bail without first hav-
ing a hearing, and before a
court could release a forcible
felony violator the judge would
be required to hold a "danger
to the community" hearing to
assess the offender's likeli-
hood of committing another
crime that could cause physi-
cal harm. If the court finds that
the forcible felony violator
does not pose a danger to the


community, the judge must
enter a written order stating
that fact. The proposal would
give judges the opportunity to
affirmatively decide that a
forcible felony violator is or is
not too great a risk to be
released. Offenders found to
be a danger to the community
may not be returned to proba-
tion and must be sentenced to
prison.

The Anti-Murder Act has
been endorsed by the Florida
Sheriffs Association, The Flori-
da Police Chiefs Association,
the Florida Prosecuting Attor-
neys Association, the Florida
Police Benevolent Association,
the Florida Coalition Against
Domestic Violence, the Nation-
al Rifle Association and Unified
Sportsmen of Florida. It is
sponsored by Senator Rudy
Garcia and 20 Senate co-spon-
sors, and by Representative
Bruce Kyle and 80 House co-
sponsors.
