Bank cuts another ribbon


Citizens Bank and Trust cut
another ribbon on May 18, 2005.
A group of city officials and Lake
Wales Chamber of Commerce
dignitaries were on hand as bank
management and staff and board
members held a Lake Wales
Office Re-Grand Opening at
8:15am. It was a dual celebration
of the completion of a remodel of
the Lake Wales office at 222 State
Road 60 E., both inside and out,
as well as marking the one year
anniversary of the acquisition of


American Bank & Trust by Citi-
zens Bank. The official comple-
tion of the merger was June 1,
2004.
"The facelift of the building
was a project that has taken.sev-
eral months but we are proud of
the attractive improvements",
said President Greg Littleton. "Its
hard to believe it has been one
year since the official merger of
Citizens Bank and American
Bank & Trust. A lot of work has
gone into this successful joining


of two fine banks and we are
very pleased with the results thus
far".
Both the first and second
floors of the Lake Wales office
were remodeled, including the
relocation of the Trust Depart-
ment to a more prominent and
visible location on the second
floor. The lobby has new furni-
ture, new decor, and a new con-
ference room.

P.T. Wilson, Chairman of, the
Board of Directors of Citizens
Bank and Trust. "As is expected
in bank mergers, we were antici-
pating some run off of deposits
during the transition but have
been delighted with the continu-
al growth of all of our offices. We
want to thank our customers,
both longtime and newly
acquired customers, for sticking
with us."

merger date of the two banks,
Citizens Bank and Trust boasts
an increase of 14% in deposits

Dr. Keith Wade has been
appointed Chief Academic Offi-

Wade's affiliation with the
SUniversitybegan nearly ten years
ago when he was adked to join
its Business Advisory Board. As a
member of this board, Wade
provided input into the curricu-
lum telling the University, as a
local hiring executive what he
hoped to see in its graduates to
'help them excel when they
entered the business world.
With nearly a decade of part-
time university teaching under
his belt, in 2003, Wade joined the
full-time faculty at Webber Inter-
national University and, in he is
works, "never looked back..."


"It's truly a great place to be,"
says Wade. "We're small
enough that I know at least half
of the student body by name.
We don't have graduate assis-
tants...if my name is on the
course; I'm the one actually
teaching it. It really is hard to
imagine having more fun while
still getting paid for it. While the
Chief Academic Officer role car-
ries a lot of responsibility, we
have a caring, dedicated, highly
competent faculty, and that
makes the job much, much easi-
er."

Yentes, describes Wade as a

PCTS awarded for efficiency


Although most of its employ-
ees had never lived through a hur-
ricane, Polk County Transit Ser-
vices, A division or the Polk
County Board of County Com-
missioners, weathered Hurri-
canes Charley, Frances and
Jeanne with amazing efficiency
thanks in large part to their annu-
al Hurricane Simulation Training
Program. The program was
implemented just four years ago
in anticipation of a possible
severe-weather-situation, and has
earned the Division the presti-
gious "2005 National Association
of Counties'(NACO) Achieve-
ment Award."
The award recognizes coun-
ties for improving their services
by implementing "effective and
creative programs with measura-
ble results." Transit Services
Director Sandra Winegar began
requiring Hurricane Simulation
Training of all her employees and
contractors in 2001 because of


the critical role Transit Services
plays during a hurricane or other
severe weather-related event.
Transit Services is responsible for
transporting Polk County resi-
dents to public and Special Needs
shelters, distributing emergency
relief supplies afterward, and
assisting with various other trans-
portation needs throughout such
an emergency.
During Hurricanes Charley,
Frances and Jeanne, Transit Ser-
vices employees transported, 699
dialysis patients for treatment,
evacuated 168 patients from two
nursing homes, evacuated resi-
dents from a condemned apart-
ment complex, transported 327
individuals to public shelters,
transported 53 residents to hospi-
tals and nursing homes, and pro-
vided 802 trips for other medical
reasons. They also delivered
food, water, ice and baby sup-
plies throughout Polk County and
as far away as Wauchula, in Hard-


ee County.
"Transit Services employees
are on the front lines during a hur-
ricane,yet most had never experi-
enced one hurricane, let alone
three," Winegar said.
"Without the Hurricane Simu-
lation Training Program, there is
no question that employees
would not have been able to
respond as smoothly 'and effi-
ciently as they did."
Offered in May of each year,
the hurricane simulation training
is designed to let staff members -
drivers, dispatchers, customer
service representatives and
administrative staff know what to
expect during a hurricane. The
training combines traditional
PowerPoint presentations with
speakers, group activities, interac-
tive testing and role-playing. The
training emphasizes individual

Rains continue to flood roads


Above, flooding is becoming more and more a problem
for many Floridians and communities. "Unless you have a
four wheel drive vehicle you won't make it in or out" stat-
ed Jude Monk, of Jewell Road located just off Walk -In-
Water Road. Top right, Julius 'Jude' Monk a resident of
Jewell Road and neighbor Cecil 'Guy' Richards prepare
the gas powered pumps to try to alleviate some of the
flooded water on the road brought by daily rains. Unfortu-
nately after running the pumps for more than twenty-four
hours, the water level was back up the very next day.
Right, folk's in the Crooked Lake Park and Saddlebag
Lake areas aren't the only one's having flood problems. If
there isn't some help to drain the water out at Walk In
Water, residents are going to need boats to travel in and
out on their roads.

responsibilities before, during and
after the hurricane, relying heavily
on scenario-based learning. Transit
drivers, for instance, act out how
they would handle road flooding or
downed power lines; dispatchers
practice how they would respond
to the various problems drivers
may encounter; and supervisors
practice resolving all conflicts in a
way that ensures the safety of Tran-
sit Services employees and Polk
County residents. Winegar
designed the training program at
an estimated cost of only $600 per
year.
"Training like this is invaluable
to our employees and to every con-
stituent we serve," Winegar said.
"This program allowed Transit Ser-
vices to meet a critical, even lifesav-
ing, need when Polk County resi-
dents were most vulnerable."
Recognizing the need for train-
ing beyond just her division, Wine-
gar opened the program to all other
interested agencies. The "low-

allows it to be easily replicated and
adapted to local or specialized
needs.
Jacqueline Byers, Director of
Research for NACO, touted the
efforts of counties such as Polk to
implement high-impact programs
at low cost. "This year's achieve-
ment awards demonstrate that
counties are willing to tackle the
tough problems to try to do more
with less," Byers said. "Counties are
taking on problems that no one
else is addressing and finding realis-
tic solutions."
Since its inception in 1970, the
NACo Achievement Award Pro-
gram has honored hundreds ol
county governments for initiatives
that have improved service deliv-
ery, achieved greater cost efficien-
cy, provided better customer serv-
ice and helped develop a
better-trained workforce. This
year's winners represent 25 states
and 93 counties, with award cate-
gories ranging from Arts and His-
toric Preservation to Volunteerism.
NACO will present the 2005

Comcar Industries founder


Guy Bostick makes major


donation to Mid-Florida


Medical Services Foundation

The donation will go toward expanding the availability of quality
cardiovascular healthcare services in east Polk and Highlands
counties. In recognition, the cardiovascular care program at
Winter Haven Hospital will be named the Bostick Heart Center.


Mid-Florida Medical Services Foundation is
pleased to announce that it has received a major
donation from Guy Bostick, founder of Comcar
Industries, Inc.

Bostick's philanthropic gift will be directed
toward supporting the expansion of cardiovascular
care services at Winter Haven Hospital, including
a new open-heart surgery center, a new
cardiovascular intensive care unit and new
outpatient cardiac rehabilitation program. In
recognition of the donation, the heart-care program
will be named the "Bostick Heart Center" at
Winter Haven Hospital.

"On behalf of the Foundation Trustees and the
thousands of east Polk and Highlands county
residents whose lives will benefit from Winter
Haven Hospital's new cardiac care center, I'd like
to express our deepest thanks to Mr. Guy Bostick
and the Bostick family," said Richard Straughn,
Chairman of the Mid-Florida Medical Services
Foundation. "We are grateful and humbled by this
most generous donation."


"As Mr. Bostick knows from his service as an
emeritus Board Chairman for both Winter Haven
Hospital and the Foundation, our mission at the
Foundation is to develop the philanthropic
Resources needed to support Winter Haven
Hospital and the rapidly growing communities it
serves," Straughn added.

Guy Bostick said: "I have always believed in
having the best health care available where you
live and do business. I hope this contributes to
improving patient care in east Polk and invite
others to join me in this important cause."

Mark Bostick, son of Guy Bostick and currently
second vice chairman of the Winter Haven
Hospital Board of Trustees," said: "With this gift,
my father continues his strong record of
community leadership."

Richard Dantzler, Chairman of the Winter Haven
Hospital and MFMS Board of Trustees, said, "For
more than 50 years, Guy Bostick has been a
visionary businessman and community leader.
He's one of those rare people who can identify


what it takes to make a great community, and then
take it upon himself to make it happen. We're very
fortunate that Guy chose to make his home in this
area. Our thanks as a board and as a community go
to Guy, his family and the whole Comcar
organization for this magnanimous gesture."

Lance Anatasio, President and. Chief Executive
Officer of MFMS/Winter Haven Hospital, said Mr.
Bostick's philanthropic donation to the Foundation
" serves as a potent reminder of the Foundation's
community-based mission and the need for broad-
based support.

"Our focus as a not-for-profit health service
organization is on serving the healthcare needs of
the communities in east Polk and Highland
counties. To that extent, we are dependent upon all
members of the community to help us fulfill that
mission," Anastasio said. "Philanthropic gifts of all
sizes major and modest combine together to
make a dramatic difference in the quality of life
that we all enjoy here. Each of us who have
-worked with Mr. Bostick over the years owe him a
debt of gratitude. On behalf of the medical staff
and the professional staff and the 2,500 employees
at Winter Haven Hospital, we thank him for this
investment in our organization's mission."

Headquartered in Aubumdale, Florida, Comcar
Industries is a family-owned business led by Guy
Bostick and his son Mark Bostick. The company
was founded in July 1953 with one driver, Mr.
Bostick himself. Since then, Comcar evolved from
its origins as Commercial Carrier Corporation -
the original name and has become an institution
in the nation-wide trucking industry.

trucking firms in the United States. It owns 11
divisions, operating five trucking operations
nationwide with 52 strategically located terminals,
allowing the company to haul any commodity,
anywhere in the United States. Comcar has 6,500
employees.

TALLAHASSEE Attorney Gen-
eral Charlie Crist issued the fol-
lowing statement on the U.S.
Supreme Court's decision in
MGM Studios V. Grokster, in
which the justices unanimously
ruled that software developers
violate federal copyright law
when they take "affirmative steps
to foster infringement" by provid-
ing computer users with the
means to share files downloaded
from the Internet. The Attorney
General's Office filed an amicus
(friend-of-the-court) brief with
the Supreme Court that argued
the position ultimately adopted by
the Court.
"The Supreme Court has sent
a clear message that illegal con-
duct on peer-to-peer computer
networks will be punished,
whether it is for stealing copy-
righted material or distributing
child pornography. Peer-to-peer
networks make it entirely too easy
for child pornographers to swap
pictures and videos with one
another and for unsuspecting
children to come across images

NOTICE
Independent Newspapers will
never accept any advertise-

guaranteed income from
work-at-home programs if
it sounds too good to be

Some 800 and 900 telephone
numbers may require an
extra charge, as well as
long distance toll costs. We
will do our best to alert our

Florida heat brings risk of 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,

Life

and tend to occur in the legs or
abdomen.
Symptoms include: cool,
moist skin; muscle spasms,
twitching; hard and lumpy mus-
cles: tender muscles; nausea,
possibly with vomiting; fatigue;
and, rapid heartbeat.
Heat cramps occur because
the body loses fluid and elec-
trolytes. If you are sweating, be
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
standing or sitting in the heat,
this can cause a sudden loss of
blood pressure.
Symptoms of heat syncope
include fainting, light headed-
ness,-weak pulse and cool,
moist skin. Heat syncope can be
avoided by staying as cool and
hydrated as possible and by
avoiding standing or sitting in
one position for long periods of
time.
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 skin, 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
get to the point of heat exhaus-
tion.
Treatment for mild cases of
heat exhaustion includes drink-
ing lots of fluids and cooling the
body. However, if symptoms are
severe (confusion, blurred
vision, fainting) or if they symp-
toms last more than one hour,
consult your doctor.
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-
ing.
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.
Before making any changes
in your diet or exercise plan,
consult your doctor. This is
especially important if you are
on any prescription medica-
tions. Some drugs interact badly
with foods that would otherwise
be considered "healthy."


Caution in

preventing

tick bites

Tallahassee Florida
Department of Health officials
are encouraging residents and
visitors should protect them-
selves from tick bites when
enjoying the Florida outdoors
this summer. Recently, fact
sheets on the tick-borne dis-
eases that are known to trans-
mit in Florida were distributed
to local county health depart-
ments for use in educating
providers and their communi-
ties about these conditions.
"Relatively few cases of
tick-borne diseases are report-
ed in Florida, yet transmission
is entirely preventable by
avoiding tick bites," said
Department of Health Secre-
tary John O. Agwunobi, M.D.,
M.B.A., M.P.H.
Tick-borne diseases report-
ed regularly in Florida include
ehrlichiosis (er-LICK-ee-oh-
sis), Lyme disease and Rocky
Mountain spotted fever. Dis-
eases such as Q fever and
tularemia may also be trans-
mitted to people by ticks.
