Frostproof child is diagnosed with Hepatitis virus
A child attending a local day-
care center has been diagnosed
and treated for Hepatitis A.
A spokesperson for the day-
care confirmed that there was
one child found to have contract-
ed the illness. The child appeared
to be feeling ill one day last week
and a staff member noticed the
whites of the child's eyes were
quite yellow and immediately had

day, she said. The child and all
staff members have been treated

have been in contact with the
Dr. Daniel Haight from the Polk
County Health Department said
Polk County has about 15 to 20
cases of Hepatitis diagnosed in a
He said the most common is
Hepatitis A, and the victims are
Symptoms of Hepatitis A
include nausea, fever, abdominal
pain, yellowing of the eyes and
dark urine. He said children may
have mild cases of the disease
and not have the eye yellowing.
"Young children may not have
a lot of symptoms," he explained.
The disease is most often
passed by direct contact or
improper handling of food, he
said. The key to preventing it is
proper hand washing.
Young children are at risk
because they may put things in
their mouths or not wash their
hands properly after going to the
bathroom, he said.
Dr. Haight said if a person con-
tracts Hepatitis A, it takes about
30 days for the symptoms to
develop. They are contagious a
few days before the symptoms
show until about a week after the
eyes turn yellow. He said those
exposed to a person with Hepati-
tis A can be treated by immuniza-
tion within two weeks of expo-
He said when a case is con-
firmed, all of those who have
been in contact are notified by the
health department and treated.
In the case of a daycare center,
he said, they can identify all of the
staff members, children and fami-
lies who may have come into con-
tact with the infected child, and
they contact them directly.
He said in some cases where
exposure might have been at a
public event, they have to put out
public notices because they have
no way to track who might have

In a July 29 report, the engi-
neers notified the county they had
achieved maximum flow in the
system of lakes in the Frostproof
area. The discharge system from
Lake Clinch to Lake Reedy is
operating at maximum flow with-
out restrictions other than those
inherent in the system.
The remaining work at Frost-
proof is limited to restoration and
stabilizing inlets and outlets plus
designing and providing concrete
covers for the new open boxes,
according to this report.

"I just want to be sure none of
our employees ever goes through
this sort of thing again," replied
"Sexual harassment is well
defined by Title 7 of the Federal
Civil Rights Act and Florida Statute
760," said Brian Haas, Frostproof
City Attorney, "Case law has
refined and expanded the original
laws. To prove Sexual harass-
ment, the harassment must be
shown to have altered the terms

There were no fewer than
four motions made regarding
City Manager Elly Johnson's
employment with the City. The
Council was divided, since the
allegations of sexual harassment
were a "he said, she said," situa-
tion, according to the investiga-
tor's report. But five other City
employees attested in the report
to sexually suggestive personal
remarks and shouting by Mr.
Johnson at City Offices.

Johnson was asked to release his
past job records. He refused.

to continue to employ Mr. John-
son after he refused the request to
release past job records," Mr.
Haas said. "Should the City con-
tinue to employ Mr. Johnson after
that refusal, there could be an
issue of negligent retention."
"The City failed to obtain a
background check before hiring
Mr. Johnson," said Mayor Damon
Nicholson in an interview Friday.
"Stella Heath was asked to get a
background check for the city
manager we wanted to hire,"
"She didn't do it," he said.
"Not having a background
check for an employee such as
the City Manager opens the City to
a charge of negligent hiring with
respect to future lawsuits by
employees," said Attorney Haas.
Although Ms. Heath has
reportedly worked as a City
employee for a number of years,
there is neither an employee job
application nor resume on file
with the City, according to Mayor.
"We have no information
about where she worked before,"
Mr. Johnson did submit to the
City a resume which detailed his
career: jobs, lengths of employ-
ment;- duties at each position,
education and professional
awards, certifications and organi-
zations. The resume includes
names of personal references and
their telephone numbers.

Cypress Gardens Adventure
Park will hold an open audition for
anyone interested in being a mem-
ber of this year's Phobia Hal-
loween Event Cast. If you've ever
been interested in portraying one
of your favorite ghoulish characters
or have an interest in providing
spine-chilling entertainment for
families to enjoy, this is your
The auditions will take place
Tues., August 16th from 6:30 p.m.
to 9:30 p.m. Please park in the
main guest parking lot and pro-
ceed to the main entrance to sign-
in and complete an application.
Auditions will then be held in the
Ice Palace Theater, home of
Cypress Gardens on Ice. Those
interested in applying must be 18
years of age or older and willing to

We ask all interested in applying
to first e-mail us and let us know of
their interest. Please send an e-mail
to firstname.lastname@example.org and in
the Subject Line please type, "I
want to be a part of Phobia."
"We are looking for highly ener-
getic and motivated people who
are ready to work hard and have
some fun, while ensuring our
guests receive a special experience
during Phobia," said Kent Buesch-
er, CEO of Cypress Gardens Adven-
ture Park. "We invite all interested
to come out and join our team."
"Scare Zones" will pop up
around the park and you never
know around what corner they lie.
"Misery Mansion" hides spooks
and specters in its midst, just full of
things that go bump in the night.
There are definitely monsters in the
closets and under the beds of this
place! Venture into the realm of the
undead in the "Adams Family
Crypt," as the inhabitants do any-
thing but rest in peace! Hair-raising
wails fill the night as otherworldly
creatures try to escape their graves
and put you in their place! If that's
not enough, plundering pirates fill
the night with fear in the "Pirates of
the Dead" 3-D haunted house. The
walls literally come alive with the
ghosts of pirates still searching for
their ill-gotten booty and they think
you have taken it!
We haven't forgotten the littlest
ghosts and goblins; with a cute-as-
a-button "Boo House" featuring
much friendlier seasonal fun. Face
painting and storytelling are also
offered and on Halloween night,
trick or treating is held in Jubilee
Crist announces new protection tools
TALLAHASSEE Attorney Gen-
eral Charlie Crist last week
announced the creation of a new
tool designed to provide con-
sumers with immediate updates
on fraud protection measures.
Through the new Consumer Alerts
service, citizens can subscribe to
an electronic notification network
and receive fraud warnings directly
as they are announced.
"In a world of rapidly changing
technology, criminals are constant-
ly coming up with newways to pull
off old scams," said Crist. "This
new service lets us fight fire with

By subscribing to the Consumer

General's Office issues a warning
or notice to consumers. Consumer

ney General's website, but prior to
the introduction of the new service
were not otherwise delivered
directly to consumers.
Citizens may subscribe to Con-
sumer Alerts by visiting the Attor-
ney General's website at
clicking on the red "Subscribe to
the Attorney General's Electronic

for other subscription services
available to the public, including
the Attorney General's weekly elec-
tronic newsletter News Briefs and
the semi-monthly consumer news
publication Consumer Bulletin.
The Consumer Alerts service is
the latest addition to anti-fraud

Office. Since January 2003, the
office has operated a toll-free fraud
