Floridians set peak record


ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (July 6,
2005) Customers of Progress
Energy Florida set a one-hour
record for summer electricity
usage July 5, as air conditioners
worked overtime to combat the
stifling heat and humidity.
"The heavy-use periods of sum-
mer and winter are good
reminders of why Progress Energy
is continuing to invest in power
plants, transmission lines and the
overall reliability of the electric sys-
tem," said Eric Grant, director of
system operations for Progress
Energy Florida. "We want to
ensure that our customers have
electricity when they need it most,
and because of our ongoing sys-


ter improvements, we do not
anticipate problems meeting the
high customer demand."
On Tuesday, July 5, between 4
and 5 p.m.; Progress Energy Flori-
da customers used approximately
8,991 megawatt-hours (MWh) of
electricity, eclipsing the former
summer mark of 8,519 MWh set
June 24,2004.
The company generates power
at 14 sites in Florida, using nuclear
fuel, coal, natural gas and fuel oil.
Progress Energy will complete its
third natural gas-fired generating
unit at the Hines Energy Complex
in Polk County later this year, and
will soon begin construction on a


fourth unit to be on line in 2007.
Each of the new units will add
approximately 500 megawatts of
generation capacity, or enough to
supply electricity to about 320,000
homes and businesses.
The largest peaks in energy use
on Progress Energy Florida's sys-
tem normally occur during the
winter. Progress Energy Florida's
all-time system peak of 10,131
MWh was set Jan. 24,2003.
Progress Energy recommends
the following tips to save money
on energy bills:
Set your thermostat on the
highest comfortable setting. You'll
save 7 to 10 percent on your cool-


ing costs for each degree above 78.
Change air conditioner filters
monthly. Dirty filters can increase
operating costs by 20 percent.
Use ceiling and portable fans
to keep air moving. Fans only use
about as much energy as a light
bulb.
Close blinds, drapes and
shades during the hottest part of
the day. This keeps the sun's rays
from heating your house.
Because humid air holds
more heat, take lukewarm show-
ers and baths and run the bath-
room exhaust fan to reduce
humidity in your home.
When possible, use your


microwave or countertop appli-
ances for cooking instead of the
oven or stove.
Residents can also take advan-
tage of Progress Energy programs
designed to help customers con-
trol electricity use. Some of these
programs include:
Budget Billing: Customers on
fixed incomes or others who need
a bill that is a consistent amount
are encouraged to take advantage
of Budget Billing. The program is
free and helps customers forecast
monthly energy costs and better
plan their finances. Customers pay

Class of 1955 attends 50th reunion


TWenty two members of the
Frostproof High School class of
1955 attended their 50th reunion
during the weekend of June 10-
12.
They came together on Friday
night, at Selph's MHP Recreation
Hall, for a buffet meal and visit-
ing. Not even a severe rainstorm
could dampen their sprits. On
Saturday some of them golfed
while others did the "Frostproof
Tour" of the Historical Museum
(former Frostproof Library); City
Hall (former Frostproof High
School); Ramon Theatre and
Frostproof Art League Gallery.
That night they met at Inn On The
Lakes, in Sebring, for a banquet
and dancing. Sunday morning
found them back at the Rec Hall
for brunch and an inspirational
message from classmate Wayne
Langford.
At the class meeting that fol-
lowed, it was decided to pur-
chase additional sidewalk bricks
in memory of deceased mem-


bers, Gretchen Simmons Web-
ster and Mary Lou Thompson
Duckett. These will be put near
the memorial bricks already
placed in front of Citizen's Bank,
which in 1955 was Watson's
Drugstore, for Eugene Salters,
Keith Pippen, Freddy Wooten
and Ethel Wainwright Habury.
They also agreed that five years
between reunions was too long,
deciding to set a tentative date for
the next one in April, 2007.
Those attending included
Benny Backus, Peachtree City,
GA; Betty Jean Brown Mann and
Bob Griffon, Houston, TX; Patsy
Barbaree Joyner and Ray, Frost-

Thursday.


Car fire leads



to explosion


Last Thursday, the Frostproof
Fire Department received an
emergency call at 19:27 hours
about an explosion at the corner
of Highway 17 and 11 th Street. At
19:30 hours, several members of
the fire department, EMS, Frost-
proof Police Department and
volunteers were on the scene
and in action securing the site.
Local resident Margaret Kelly
of McClellan Road and her three
children escaped injury when
the 1999 Chevrolet Astro Van
they were traveling in caught fire,
just south of Southside 'Lil' Dixie,


The Frostproof City Hall Audi-
torium was overflowing with

when Margaret's four year old
son (Gabriel Torres) whom was
sitting in the seat located behind
his Mom, said "Mommy there is
fire under your seat". Ms. Kelly
stopped the Van immediately
and began to remove her three
children. Upon removing her
children away from the Van, the
Van exploded. Two oxygen tanks
located between the two front
seats in the Van when it caught
fire and exploded, blowing
debris from the Van in different
directions.

On Monday, June 27, the Lake
Wales Government Center re-
opened, 10 months after hurri-
cane damage tore off roofs and
water damage forced the govern-
ment offices within the complex
to close. Since that time, the
offices of the Tax Collector, Clerk
of Courts and Sheriff have been
under major renovation to restore
services as soon as possible.
In mid-August of last year, Hur-
ricane Charlie swept up Highway
27, wreaking havoc up the ridge
area of Polk County. The Lake


Wales area was especially hard
hit. Immediately after Hurricane
Charlie, all offices in the Govern-
ment Center were closed. How-
ever, before roof repairs could be
made, subsequent damage from
hurricanes Francis and Jeanne
compounded the damage, result-
ing in extensive repairs to the inte-
rior of the building.

dents in the southeast corner

Gasoline pricing report released


TALLAHASSEE Attorney Gen-
eral Charlie Crist released the
results of a study of gasoline pricing
in Florida, concluding that two fac-
tors besides high crude oil prices
purposely low inventory and a
shrinking number of suppliers in
the industry were the primary con-
tributors to statewide gasoline
price spikes experienced by Florida
consumers in 2004. The report fol-
lows an antitrust investigation
launched by the Attorney General
in May 2004. While the examina-
tion fond that there was no clear
evidence of state or federal antitrust
violations, it concluded that the fol-
lowing factors contributed to the
high prices:
Major oil refiners intentionally
maintained low inventory levels in
order to maximize profits. With no
cushion in inventory levels, when-
ever demand increased beyond
expectations, supplies became
unusually tight. Unexpected dis-
ruptions such as refinery fires,
pipeline breaks and barge acci-
dents, in the absence of sufficient
inventory, added further pressure
to push prices higher.
With the expansion of mergers
by companies, especially in recent
years, the industry has developed
an economic climate in which
there are too few sellers, the mar-
ketplace is interdependent and
actions taken by one firm affect all
others. Consequently, if one firm
raised prices, others were likely to
follow.


"Clearly the petroleum compa-
nies have been maintaining low
inventories in order to maximize
profits," said Crist. "Inadequate
inventory combined with a limited
number of suppliers adds up to
high prices at the pump. We urge
the oil companies to consider the
effects that the lack of sufficient
inventory is having on everyday
consumers and on the economy.
We hope they will look to other
ways to find a better balance
between their corporate goals and
the generalwelfare of our citizens."
Simultaneous to the release of
this report, the Attorney General
sent a letter to Federal Trade Com-
mission Chairman Deborah Platt
Majoras voicing concerns about a
proposed merger in the industry. In
April, Valero Energy
Corporation announced its
agreement to acquire Premcor
Incorporated.
Further consolidation in the oil
refining segment of the industry
will only lessen the competitive
forces that ultimately benefit con-
sumers through lower prices, Crist
said in his letter.
In its investigation over the past
year, the Attorney General's
Antitrust Division issued dozens of
subpoenas, reviewed nearly
240,000 pages of documents and
reviewed computer disks contain-
ing nearly 60,000 files in order to
examine the gas price increases of
the past year and determine their
likely causes. To assist in this


endeavor, the Attorney General
retained two well-known experts
with substantial expertise in the
study of the petroleum industry, Dr.
Keith Leffler and Mr. Peter Ashton.
Dr. Leffler is an economist with
the Department of Economics at
the University of Washington, while
Ashton is a financial consultant
specializing in the economics of
the petroleum industry.
"Gas prices have risen sharply
over the last year and the Attorney
General's Office conducted this
study to ensure that our state's visi-


tors and citizens were not unfairly
taken advantage of," said Crist.
"This study provides greater insight
into the complex petroleum indus-
try and highlights factors that con-
tributed to the gas price spikes of
2004."

Cesar Asuaje, an extension agent with the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences, has launched a new program to educate migrant farm workers about all
aspects of farm safety. In recent years, these workers have accounted for a growing number
of injuries and fatalities in agriculture and related fields.


Migrant workers face



health and safety hazards


WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -
Down on the farm, it can be down-
right dangerous especially for
thousands of Florida migrant farm
workers who may not be familiar
with rules and regulations
designed to ensure their safety on
the job. But help is on the way,
thanks to a new University of Flori-
da farm safety-trainiiigprogram
aimed at the state's 200,000
migrant farm workers.
"What these workers don't
know about agriculture, it seems,
can truly hurt them," said Cesar
Asuaje, an extension agent with
UF's Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences. "In recent years,
Hispanic workers have accounted
for a growing number of injuries
and fatalities in agriculture and
related industries such as landscap-
ing."
He said immigrants from Mexi-
co and other countries in the trop-
ics make up the majority of Flori-
da's seasonal agricultural workers,
and some have received little
instruction in farm safety.
"As a result, injuries and fatali-
ties among Hispanic workers are
increasing, and the language barri-
er is one reason for that," Mr. Asua-
je said. "In a lot of cases, people are
hurt because they cannot read
signs or safety instructions, and
some don't want to let on that they
don't understand."
Working out of UF's extension
office in West Palm Beach, Asuaje
is offering farm safety training in 11
counties, and the training program
is being expanded to meet a grow-
ing demand from the state's His-
panic population. He goes to citrus
groves, sugarcane fields, tomato
farms and other agricultural enter-
prises throughout South Florida,
teaching a one-day, on-the- job
training course to migrant workers.
The training, which is presented in
Spanish, covers topics ranging
from operating tractors and other
heavy equipment to handling pesti-
cides and avoiding back injuries.
The program is currently being
offered in Broward, Collier,
Hendry, Hillsborough, Manatee,
Martin, Miami-Dade, Orange, Palm
Beach, Pinellas and St. Lucie coun-
ties.
Mr. Asuaje said the most recent
statistics from the U.S. Occupation-
al Safety and Health Administration
(OSHA) indicate fatal injuries
among Hispanic workers on the
farm rose more than 18 percent
while nonfatal injuries rose by 33
percent between 1999-2003.
In the landscaping industry a
sector of Florida agriculture that
employs large numbers immigrant
workers nonfatal injuries
increased by 63 percent over the
same period.
"It's a trend you see every-
where, particularly in Florida," said
Luis Santiago, director of OSHA in
the Fort Lauderdale area. "They're
doing work that others won't do -
and that usually means dangerous
work."
For example, when you can't
read instructions on heavy equip-
ment, just about any work can
become dangerous, Mr. Santiago
said. He cited recent deaths among


workers using heavy-duty industri-
al lawnmowers in landscaping
operations in South Florida resi-
dential areas. Workers unfamiliar
with warnings often use them on
steep slopes near canals and
sometimes tumble in and get
pinned under the mower.
Santiago said federal regula-
tions require safety training for
every worker. While some employ-
ers usually show a Spanish- lan-
guage video, that's no guarantee
that every migrant worker will
receive effective training.
"Most growers are honest, but
some don't train workers because
they want to avoid claims against
them if something goes wrong,"
Mr. Santiago said. "For example, a
lot of these workers have never
seen a respirator before working
here. If they're spraying pesticide,
they might not know that a respira-
tor is required for protection."
While video training materials
may help, Mr. Asuaje said it's better
to have someone teaching in per-
son. In addition to training workers
at farms around the state, he
organized the Hispanic Health and
Safety Fair in Homestead, Fla. on
June 4, and he is planning a similar
program in Kissimmee on August
20. More than 1,000 migrant farm
workers are expected to attend.
The popularity of the farm safe-
ty program has led Mr. Asuaje to
begin offering other Spanish-lan-
guage classes. His office is one of

the few places where Florida resi-
dents can take Spanish- language
classes for a license to apply pesti-
cides something that can give a
new landscaping company a leg
up on competitors who are not
licensed to apply pest-control prod-
ucts to lawns and shrubs.
Asuaje said the pesticide train-
ing class is popular among immi-
grants who started as landscape
workers and then opened their
own landscaping businesses.
The test for the license is in Eng-
lish, and applicants need some
basic reading skills in English to
pass the examination, but instruc-
tion in Spanish can make a differ-
ence in how well the students
understand basic concepts, he
said.
"We start with Spanish and
include more and more English as
the class goes along," he said. "If
someone has a problem under-
standing something, we can work
it out in Spanish, which is easier."
Mr. Asuaje said workers with
acceptable reading skills seem to
benefit most, while those who
have lower reading skills will begin
to learn the process for pesticide
certification.
With the growing number of
Spanish- speaking people in Flori-
da, Mr. Asuaje says he has only
begun to scratch the surface in the
demand for instruction in farm
safety and farming.

Heavy spring rainfall spikes mosquito population


Heavy spring rainfall has trig-
gered major increases in the state's
mosquito population and resulted
in a spike of Eastern Equine
Encephalitis (EEE) cases among
horses, Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson reported.
As a result, Bronson is urging
horse owners to make sure their
animals are vaccinated against the
disease and advising all Floridians
to take precautions to minimize
their exposure to mosquitoes.
"It's critical that the public take


notice that we are experiencing
large increases in Florida's mosqui-
to population and begin taking
steps to protect not only their hors-
es but themselves, as well," Bron-
son said. "Many common mosqui-
toes are capable of carrying a
number of potentially dangerous
diseases."
As of today, 51 horses in 22
Florida counties this year have con-
tracted EEE --a virus that results in
brain swelling and is generally fatal
in horses, and sometimes fatal in
humans. No human cases of EEE


have been detected yet in 2005,
according to health officials.
By contrast, only 45 cases of
EEE were recorded for the entire
year in 2004, leading some to
believe that this year's cases could
approach the approximately 200
recorded in the two heaviest years
in recent history 2003 and 1982.
On average, Florida records about
62 cases of EEE each year.
Bronson said this year's num-
bers make it all the more important
that horse owners check with their
veterinarians to make sure that
their animals have been vaccinated


against the disease and to make
sure that booster shots are up to
date. While no West Nile Virus
cases have yet been reported this
year, horses should be vaccinated
against that mosquito-borne dis-
ease also, Bronson said.
While .no human cases of either
disease has been detected in Flori-
da this year, the fact that mosqui-
toes carrying EEE are present in at
least 22 counties means people are
also vulnerable to contracting the
disease.
Among precautions that resi-
dents should take are avoiding the


DOH urges preparedness for flu season


Healthcare Providers should
order flu vaccine for their patients
and Floridians should schedule
appointments for their flu vacci-
nation now.
Tallahassee- Florida Depart-
ment of Health (DOH) officials
remind residents that it is not too
early to prepare for the 2005 flu
season. For months, DOH offi-
cials have called on private
providers to order flu vaccine
early to ensure sufficient supplies
for all their patients. So far, DOH
clinics have ordered nearly
340,000 flu vaccines for their clin-
ic patients in the upcoming sea-
son. Most citizens are expected to
receive their flu vaccine through
their own doctor's offices or


healthcare providers this year.
"It is critical that private
providers seize this waning
opportunity to order flu vaccine
for their patients and clients. I
urge Florida residents to call their
doctors now to schedule a flu
shot for later this year," DOH Sec-
retary John 0. Agwunobi, M.D.,
M.B.A., M.P.H., said. "We were
fortunate that flu season was rela-
tively mild last year, but we can't
let our guard, down. Take steps
now to make sure you and your
private provider are prepared for
this year's upcoming season."
DOH estimates that it facilitat-
ed the distribution of almost 2.67
million doses of flu vaccine in
Florida over the 2004/2005 flu sea-


son. Nearly 252,000 of those flu
shots were administered in DOH
clinics around the state. The
majority of flu vaccine was
administered through private
physicians, clinics, hospitals,
long-term care facilities, commu-
nity-based clinics and other pub-
lic venues.
"To avoid standing in line
schedule an appointment with
your doctor now for a flu shot in
October, November or Decem-
ber. That way, you'll know when
you're getting your vaccine and
your doctor will know how much
to order," Agwunobi added.
In addition to vaccination, a
number of simple steps can
reduce the probability of contract-


ing respiratory infections signifi-
cantly:
Clean hands often with soap
and water, or an alcohol-based
hand cleanser.
Avoid touching your eyes,
nose or mouth.
Stay home when you are
sick and keep sick children
home.


out-of-doors at dusk and dawn,
when mosquitoes are most active;
wearing protective clothing -
including long-sleeved shirts, pants
and socks when venturing out-
side during those hours; and using
an insect repellent containing


either UEEI or Pcaridin.
Homeowners should also
remove standing water from their
property, as stagnant water in bird
baths, plant saucers, old tires and
kiddie pools make excellent breed-
ing grounds for mosquitoes.

Citrus canker found at UF Indian River Research Center


FORT PIERCE, Fla. Citrus
canker, one of the most destructive
diseases affecting Florida's $9 bil-
lion citrus industry, has been
found in a University of Florida cit-
rus research grove at UF's Indian
River Research and Education
Center, or IRREC, near Fort Pierce.
The discovery, confirmed
Thursday by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer
Services, Division of Plant Industry,
will likely require officials to
destroy all of the citrus trees in
IRREC's groves, halting all citrus
research projects there, said Brian
Scully, director of the center and a
professor of horticulture with UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, or UF/IFAS.
"This canker infection, though
contained in the early stages, will
temporarily halt all of our citrus
research projects at the center,"
Scully said. "It will take us a num-
ber of years to recover, but ulti-
mately this setback will offer us a
fresh start and improved groves in
which to conduct research. How-
ever, we will continue to conduct
our collaborative research in com-
mercial groves with the coopera-


tion of private industry."
The disease, caused by bacteria
in the genus Xanthomonas, can
affect all citrus varieties, including
grapefruit, oranges and tanger-
ines, which are grown at IRREC,
Scully said. Trees affected by the
disease develop small brown
lesions on leaves, stems and fruit.
Citrus canker eventually reduces
tree productivity if left unchecked.
IRREC employees discovered
the outbreak Monday during a vol-
untary grove inspection, he said.
UF/IFAS officials immediately
reported the discovery to the Divi-
sion of Plant Industry, which is
responsible for the state's Citrus
Canker Eradication Program.
UF/IFAS will cooperate fully
with DPI to address the situation,
said Jimmy Cheek, UF senior vice
president for agriculture and natu-
ral resources. Mapping efforts by
the Citrus Canker Eradication Pro-
gram will establish the extent of
the infection -and determine which
groves will be affected.
"Our personnel will assist DPI
in identifying all infected trees,"
Cheek said. "After that, we'll cope
with the loss of any trees that may


occur. We now understand a little
better what citrus growers go
through when they face a canker
outbreak."
State citrus canker eradication
procedures require the destruction
of all infected citrus trees that are
found, as well as any citrus trees
located within 1,900 feet of infect-
ed citrus trees, Scully said. These
measures minimize the chances
the highly contagious disease will
spread to other sites.
Currently, six IRREC faculty and
their collaborators from other
UF/IFAS facilities are conducting
more than two dozen experiments
in the research groves, some using
trees planted 30 to 50 years ago, he
said.
Citrus research efforts at IRREC
emphasize plant breeding, ento-
mology, pathology and virology,
soil and water science, plant nutri-
tion and irrigation and post-har-
vest physiology, Scully said.
"It is difficult to quantify the loss
in terms of time, monetary value
and the potential impact that our
research findings have on the
statewide citrus industry," Scully
said.


SIn addition, citrus research pro-
grams at the U.S. Department of
Agriculture Horticultural Research
Laboratory adjacent to IRREC are
vulnerable to the effects of the
canker infection in the IRREC
groves, said Harold Browning,
statewide coordinator for UF citrus
programs in teaching, research
and extension.
Scully said he believes the dis-
ease did not reach IRREC via
human activity. "Our facility has
been strictly following the precau-
tions recommended by the Divi-
sion of Plant Industry and used by
growers," he said.
The bacteria that cause citrus
canker can spread on air currents,
in rainwater, and on people, ani-
mals, plants and farm equipment,
Scully said.
Ongoing canker sanitation and
decontamination efforts will be
stepped up at UF's other citrus
research units, including the Citrus
Research and Educatioh Center in
Lake Alfred and the Southwest
Florida Research and Education
Center in Immokalee, said Brown-
ing, who directs the Lake Alfred
center.

research grove at the center Friday, July 1, 2005. Workers
discovered the outbreak last Monday, and officials will likely
have to destroy all citrus trees at the center, temporarily halt-
ing more than two dozen experiments. Caused by bacteria,
citrus canker is one of the most destructive diseases affect-
ing Florida's $9 billion citrus industry.

WE....,


In this age of exploitive and trashy media, we're proud to be
different. We believe in operating and publishing our news-
paper as a public trust.


Fulfilling our public trust requires that we try to bring out
the best in our community and its people. We seek the high-
est common denominators, not the lowest. We don't engage
in gutter journalism. We know we can achieve success on the
high road.


How are we doing?


Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling

your editor.
