County announces

the new fire chief

On Friday, June 17, The Polk
County Board of County Commis-
sioners announced that David
Cash, current emergency man-
agement director, has been select-
ed as the new fire chief-effective
July 7. Among Cash's initial goals
are to: ensure the Fire Services
Division is community-oriented in
its focus, review the level of
inspection services to businesses
throughout the county, and
expand the effectiveness of exist-
ing public education programs.
Cash, a Lake Wales native, has
served the Polk County Public
Safety Department for more than
twenty-nine years. He began his
career in 1974 as a volunteer fire-
fighter in the City of Lake Wales.
He attained his State of Florida
Professional Firefighter Certifica-
tion in 1976 and joined the Polk.
County Fire Department that
same year. He continued to work
for Fire Services for twelve years,
during which time he earned the

ranks of lieutenant, captain and
deputy chief.
In 1988, Cash was promoted
to Polk County Public Safety
Coordinator, where he was
responsible for managing the
County's Emergency Communi-
cations Center, as well as over-
seeing the radio and county tele-
phone operations.
In 1992, he became the Polk
County Emergency Management
Director, where he was responsi-
ble for disaster preparedness,
managing the County's Emer-
gency Communications Center,
and managing the 9-1-I/county-
wide Addressing Operations.
Cash, who was part of the top-
level Public Safety team that
brought Polk County through the
historic 2004 hurricane season,
said, "I look forward to returning
to an area of endeavor I've always
enjoyed and serving my home
county as Fire Chief."

Police cars are not

co m mercial vehicles

Attorney General Charlie Crist
concluded that a police officer can
park a police car in the driveway
of his home even though a home-
owners association rule bars
"commercial" vehicles from being
parked in the neighborhood. Crist
determined that police cars are
not commercial vehicles, and
therefore the association's rules
cannot prevent the officer from
leaving the cruiser in his driveway
when he is off duty.
Crist issued Attorney General's
Opinion 05-36, at the request of
Davie Town Councilmember
Susan Starkey, who on behalf of
the town asked for a formal deter-
mination of whether a marked
police vehicle assigned to a law
enforcement officer is a commer-
cial vehicle.
"Public safety is the first duty of
government, and law enforcement
officers are among the most heroic
citizens in our society," said Crist.
"To suggest that these officers
are somehow engaged in commer-
cial activity stretches common
sense beyond the breaking point.
Officers provide an invaluable pub-
lic service, and the visible presence
of a police car in a residential neigh-
borhood can only contribute to the
safety of that neighborhood."

The opinion was requested in
response to the situation of Miami
Beach police officer Kevin Millan, a
resident of the Davie neighborhood
of Carlton Ranches. The neighbor-
hood's homeowners association
said Officer Millan's practice of
parking his police cruiser in his
driveway violated association rules
against commercial vehicles. The
Attorney General traveled to Officer
Millan's home to present the opin-
ion personally to Councilmember
Starkey and Officer Millan.
In the Attorney General's
Opinion, Crist wrote: "The provi-
sion of law enforcement services
is an integral and constituent
part of government. It is the per-
formance of a governmental
duty owed to the general public
at large. This office has previous-
ly recognized that the assign-
ment of a police vehicle to an
officer to drive during off-duty
hours to provide quicker
response when called to an
emergency would be of a direct
benefit to the public. In addition,
the presence of a police vehicle
in a neighborhood may serve as
a deterrent to crime. Clearly, the
provision of law enforcement
services does not constitute a
commercial enterprise."

Animals may act aggressive

He may be your best friend, but
when your pet's behavior leaves
you with Band-Aids and bruises, it
may be time to consult a profes-
sional, says Dr. Lore Haug, an ani-
mal behaviorist at Texas A&M Uni-
versity's College of Veterinary
Medicine and Biomedical Sci-
"If a dog is growling, lunging,
snapping, or biting, or a cat is hiss-
ing, swatting or scratching, even
in play, its behavior is aggressive,"
Haug explains.
Aggression can be a natural
response for your pet, such as
when a stranger bangs on your
window in the middle of the night.
However, when a pet is aggres-
sive at inappropriate times or to
excessive degrees, it is not normal
and requires attention.
Animals may react aggressively
if they feel frightened or defensive
in a situation, if they are protecting
something, such as a food bowl,
toy or even a person or another
animal. Playing too much or very
rough may also conjure up
aggressive tendencies.
If your pet has ever directed
aggression toward you, you know
it can be a tense moment. "When
this happens, the safest thing to do
is to get out of that situation as
calmly as possible.
You cannot teach the animal
anything productive when it's in
the middle of an aggressive out-
burst," says Haug. After the out-
burst, however, when your pet's
normal demeanor returns, don't
forget what has happened and
seek help as soon as possible.
Haug warns, "Aggressive behavior
does not spontaneously disappear
and a pet usually does not out-
grow it. Many times, the animal's
aggressiveness progressively
worsens and it becomes more dif-
ficult for the animal to unlearn bad
A behaviorist can help an
owner set up an individualized
behavior modification program to
help break the pet of unhealthy
aggression, according to Haug.
With the right treatment and
care, most pets can dramatically
improve, she adds.
"Though the owner must
maintain a certain level of vigi-
lance, it is possible to come to a
point where the pet is unlikely to
display aggression again," Haug
notes. Most behaviorists avoid
using the word 'cure' in reference
to aggression because it is a natu-
ral behavior and only problematic
when it occurs too often or in an
abnormal context.
"Owners should not approach
the treatment process with the
goal of completely removing their
pet's aggression in mind, nor
should they expect immediate
results from the pet because treat-
ment is usually ongoing and

"Socialization is one of the most important pre-
ventative factors for behavioral problems."
Dr. Lore Haug

progress is gradual," Haug says.
Being careful about where you
acquire your pet and at what age
you bring it home are good ways
to limit the possibility of getting a
pet with aggressive tendencies. A
puppy or kitten- should not be
taken home until. it is around
seven to eight weeks old. Haug
says, "Though they may be physi-
cally weaned from their mothers,
puppies and kittens younger than
seven weeks are sometimes not
psychologically ready to leave
their littermates and familiar envi-
When you get your new pet,
you should start it on a training
and socialization program as early
as possible.
"Socialization is one of the
most important preventative fac-
tors for behavioral problems,"
says Haug.
"Getting your pet started in

training classes when it is around
eight to 'ten weeks old teaches
your pet how you want it to
behave, before it's had the chance
to learn habits that you don't like
or can't control. Also make sure
your pet is healthy because dis-
comfort or injury can make a pet
irritable or defensive, especially
about being handled or touched."
Pet aggression is not a hope-
less situation but it should not be
ignored either. With proper treat-
ment and care, Haug says your
best friend usually can learn how
to behave appropriately around
both people and pets.

Florida heat brings health hazards

Soaring temperatures bring
increased risk of heat injury.
If you are working or playing
in the Florida heat, be aware of
the warning signs of heat injury.
According to the Center for
Disease Control (CDC), heat
injuries include: heat rash, heat
cramps, heat swelling, heat syn-
cope (fainting), heat exhaustion
and heat stroke.
Heat rash (sometimes called
prickly heat) is generally mild.
Red bumps appear on the skin
and usually disappear within a
few days. Heat rash is fairly com-
mon in very young children.
Heat rash can be prevented by
keeping cool with air condition-
ing, fans and cool showers.
Keep the skin dry and wear light-
weight, loose-fitting clothing.
Wear natural fibers, such as cot-
ton, which do not trap the
body's heat.
Treatments for heat rash
includes: Keep the rash area
cool and dry. Consult your doc-
tor about medications such as
calamine lotion and Benadryl. If
the rash does not clear up in a
few days, or it becomes infected,
consult your doctor.
According to the CDC web-
site, heat cramps often occur
after strenuous exercise in heat,
and tend to occur in the legs or
Symptoms include: cool,
moist skin; muscle spasms,
twitching; hard and lumpy mus-
cles: tender muscles; nausea,

sure to drink plenty of fluids.
Water is always a good choice,
but if you are sweating a lot, you
might want to also sip sports
drinks such as Gatorade, which
replace lost electrolytes. Consult
your doctor about sports drinks
if you are on a diet that restricts
sodium intake. Some sports
drinks are high in sodium.
Treatment for heat cramps
includes drinking lots of fluids,
massaging and stretching mus-
cles and limiting exercise. If
symptoms do not ease after one
hour, consult your doctor.
Heat swelling usually occurs
in the hands, legs, ankles and
feat. It happens after standing or
sitting a long time in the heat. It
can be prevented by periodically
stretching and moving, so you
don't sit too long in one posi-
tion. Treatment for heat swelling
is to rest in a cool place and to
elevate the legs.
Heat syncope is a form of
fainting. It can be related to heat
swelling. If blood pools in the
legs during a long period of

avoided by staying as cool and
hydrated as possible and by
avoiding standing or sitting in
one position for long periods of
The CDC's recommended
treatment for heat syncope is to
lie down in a cool environment.
If fainting spells last longer than
one minute, or if the person
seems agitated or disoriented,
consult your doctor.
Heat exhaustion, also known
as heat prostration and heat col-
lapse, requires immediate med-
ical attention. Left untreated, it
can lead to heat stroke.
Symptoms of heat exhaustion
include dizziness, fainting,
headache, rapid heartbeat, rapid
breathing, confusion or irritabili-
ty, blurred vision, fatigue, heavy
sweating, clammy skirt, pale
skin and heat cramps.
Heat exhaustion can be pre-
vented by staying as cool as pos-
sible and drinking lots of fluid.
It's also important to recognize
the early signs of heat injury and
take them seriously, so you don't

Treatment for mild cases of
heat exhaustion includes drink-
ing lots of fluids and cooling the
body. However, if symptoms are

Vitello will oversee all park

Left untreated, heat exhaus-
tion can lead to heat stroke,
which can be fatal.
Heat stroke occurs when the
body can no longer cool itself
and "shuts down."
Symptoms include hot skin
(wet or dry), high fever, vomit-
ing, diarrhea, unconsciousness,
confusion, hallucinations,
seizures, rapid heartbeat, rapid
breathing and difficulty breath-
Heat stroke requires immedi-
ate medical care. Call 911 or
take the victim to the emergency
room. While waiting for emer-
gency help to arrive, keep the
heat stroke victim as cool as pos-
sible by moving the person to a
shaded or air conditioned area;
remove any clothing made of
synthetic materials (which can
trap heat), fan the body, use ice
packs on neck and armpits. If
the person is awake and not
nauseated, give fluids. Do not
give aspirin or acetaminophen.
According to the CDC, extreme
body heat from heat stroke is not
treated the same as a normal
fever; taking these medications
may cause further problems.
Editor's Note: Before making
any changes in your diet or exer-
cise plan, consult your doctor.
This is especially important if
you are on any prescription
medications. Some drugs inter-
act badly with foods that would
otherwise be considered

Water, water everywhere

By MaryAnn Moris
Water is a big subject in South
Florida's rainy season. For new-
comers, the "rainy season",
extends from late spring through
early fall, roughly from May or
June through October or Novem-
ber, depending on the year. Daily
rainfall on the relatively flat land of
South Florida means that water
can be a problem.
Government water managers,
such as the South Florida Water
Management District, local
drainage districts, such as the
Coquina Water Control District,
cities and county governments
and homeowners associations
have the responsibility to manage
rainfall runoff for their areas,
canals, ditches and lakes as their
codes and charters require. Prop-
erty owners, ranchers, farmers
and individuals are also responsi-
ble for the runoff from the land
they own.
Dished medians in interstate
highways, roadside ditches and
swales along lot lines and resi-
dential roads all work to drain
water away from roads we drive
on and the buildings where we
work and live.
Sometimes water can be
drained off through public ditch-
es, canals and swales, or caught

"Lot drainage in new subdivisions is
addressed as part of the review process."
Jennifer Busbin,
Planner for the Okeechobee County
Planning and Development Department

in ponds and partially contained
in swales until it soaks in or evap-
orates over time.
Nothing seems to cause more
contention than changing things
on your property that in some
way changes the water situation
on your neighbor's property. In
short, you are expected to keep
your water and keep the ditches
flowing. This issue is known as
"lot drainage".
"Lot drainage in new subdivi-
sions is addressed as part of the
review process," said Jennifer
Busbin, Planner for the Okee-
chobee County Planning and
Development Department. When
roads and homes are built, the
areas covered with concrete,
roofs or paving no longer allow
rain watel to soak in. Plans must
be made so that no one is hurt by
the new construction.
"On existing properties," con-
tinued Ms. Busbin, "neither may
the drainage flow be blocked nor
may the lot be changed in such a
way to cause water to flow onto or
stand on neighboring property."

So, whatcanyou do?
Be you own best water man-
ager. Be sure that you understand
the path water takes as it leaves
your property. Don't block swales
or ditches by planting in them or
allow leaves, mulch and other
yard waste and sediment to
remain. Don't plant in swales and
ditches. Even tree trunks can
interfere with drainage. Older
swales should periodically be dug
out to remove accumulated sedi-
ment in the bottom and sloped, if
needed so that water will flow to
catch basins or soak into the soil.
When changes on neighbor-
ing property cause water prob-
lems on your land, it can become
a code enforcement issue.
"If, for instance, you wish to
build higher than your neighbor,
you can where permitted, but
you must keep your water on
your land with a swale. You may
not change drainage to adversely
impact your neighbor," said Ms.
Busbin, "problems with existing
homes can be an issue for the
Code Compliance Department."

Bronson files lawsuit against

Florida telemarketing company

culture and Consumer Services
Charles H. Bronson announced
that he has taken legal action
against a Hillsborough County
telemarketer for violating Flori-
da's "Do Not Call" law.
A lawsuit filed in Hillsbor-
ough County Circuit Court
alleges that Liberty One Capital
Inc. made at least six telephone,
calls to Florida residents on the
state's "Do Not Call" list during
the past 10 months. Moreover,
the company is accused of play-
ing recorded messages when
residents answered the phone,

which is a separate violation of
Florida law.
"Consumers who join the pro-
gram are entitled to be spared
the intrusion of commercial tele-
marketing calls, and this compa-
ny apparently has failed to get the
message," Bronson said.
The legal action seeks an
injunction prohibiting Liberty
One Capital Inc. from any future
calls to residents on the "Do Not
Call" list and fines of up to
$10,000 for each violation involv-
ing the calls it made to prohibit-
ed telephone numbers.
Bronson's department has

collected or obtained judgments
for more than $1 million against
companies that have called resi-
dents on the list, and several
such legal actions are pending in
courts throughout the state.
The Commissioner encourages
Floridians to join the program,
which prohibits most commercial
telemarketers from calling num-
bers on the list. For more informa-
tion about the program, con-
sumers can call the department's
toll-free hotline 1 800 HELP FLA
(435-7352) or visit the Division of
Consumer Services' website at

Many newspapers aggressively push the opinions of their publishers
or corporate owners.

But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think, or to try
to control public opinion. Our editors insist on purposeful neutrali-
ty. We try to report the news fairly and facilitate a fair but vigorous
discussion of public issues.

We are proud to be journalists, not power brokers. And we're proud
to understand the difference.
