Women enjoy



right to vote



for 85 years


Polk women have enjoyed
the right to vote for 85 years
Friday, August 26th marked
the 85th anniversary of the date
that women were granted the
right to vote in the United States..
Polk County Supervisor of Elec-
tions, Lori Edwards explains that
here in Polk County, women
have been putting their vote to
good use.
"We have more women reg-
istered to vote than men, and
more women voted in the 2004
Presidential Election in Polk
County than men," she
explained.
Many women on Polk's voter
rolls were born before the 19th
amendment to the US constitu-
tion was ratified. "Awoman who
is 104-years-old voted last
November. More recently, a 97-
year-old woman requested an
absentee ballot for the Septem-
ber 6th Winter Haven Municipal


Election," said Edwards.
The youngest female voter in
Polk County turned 18 on
August 26th.
"A young woman eligible to
vote for the first time this year
was born in 1987. It's likely that
she is a third or fourth genera-
tion female voter," said
Edwards.
When the United States
approved the 19th amendment
to the Constitution in 1920, it
was the result of 70 years of
campaigning by political
activists supportive of the effort.
The U.S. was not the first nation
to allow women the right to
vote, New Zealand, Finland,
Norway, Denmark, Canada,
Latvia and Poland, all granted
suffrage to women before the
U.S.

READ hosts spelling bee


READ Polk, the non-profit
coalition of dedicated to
improving adult and family lit-
eracy, has announced that a
new and improved corporate
spelling bee will be held on
Thursday, October 6 at the Bar-
tow Civic Center. The purpose
of the spelling bee, a take-off on
the long-standing school
spelling bee, is to increase
awareness about literacy issues
and to raise funds to increase
literacy efforts in Polk County.
Businesses will compete
against each other to deter-
mine which company has the
county's best speller.
"The corporate spelling bee
was very popular through the
mid-1990s," said Brenda Redd-
out, READ Polk president.
"When the countywide literacy
effort stalled around that time,
the countywide spelling bee fell
by the wayside. Only Lake
Wales Literacy Council has
continued the tradition of a
spelling bee." Reddout said that
the READ Polk board, some of


whom have been involved in
literacy efforts for years, had
discussed how much fun busi-
ness people had at the earlier
spelling bees. The board decid-
ed to re-institute the bee to raise
awareness about literacy needs
in the county, and to raise funds
to meet the needs. "We know
that northeast Polk County is an
underserved area," said Redd-
out. "We also have other pock-
ets around this county where
there are many families and
individuals in need of tutoring
services. Even in areas we cur-
rently serve such as Lakeland,
Lake Wales, Winter Haven and
Auburndale, there are many
people who still need service. If
we can help the community
make the connection between
the goals of Polk Vision and
READ Polk as a vehicle to meet
some of the goals, we know we
can improve literacy rates in
our county. The Spelling Bee is
a fun way to help achieve this
goal."
The Spelling Bee will begin


with social time and a cash bar
at 5:30 followed by dinner
catered by Harry's Seafood Bar
and Grille. The Spelling Bee will
begin at 7 PM, and will feature
some of the best adult spellers
in our county. The cost of a
table for eight is $500 and
includes three people from
each business to compete as
"Spellers". Individual tickets to
the event are $50 per person.
There are also opportunities for
underwriting the event.
Corporate Spelling Bee
Dr. Gail McKinzie, Superin-
tendent of the Polk County
School District, will pronounce
the spelling words. Mr. Bob
Macey will serve as master of
ceremonies. There will also be
special "judges."
For more information, con-
tact Monica Schreiber at 646-

We thank you in advance for
your participation.

Attorney General warns against price gouging


,TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist warns
unscrupulous businesses opera-
tors against taking advantage of
Florida residents and visitors as
they cope with emergency con-
ditions brought on by heavy
rains and severe flooding. Crist
mobilized his office and staffed a
toll-free hotline at 1-866-9-NO-
SCAM (1-866-966-7226) to han-
dle consumer calls over possible
price gouging. The Attorney
General's action follows Gover-
nor Jeb Bush's official declara-
tion of an emergency for Polk
County.
"This year's storm season has
brought unusually high amounts
of rainfall to citizens of Polk
County, subjecting them to
severe flooding and electrical
power outages," said Crist. "The
last thing they need to worry
about now is someone trying to
take advantage of them. We will
thoroughly investigate every


credible allegation of price goug-
ing brought to our attention."
Those who suspect price
gouging should call the Attorney
General's hotline at 1-866-966-
7226, and investigators will look
into the complaint. Florida law
prohibits extreme increases in
the price of such commodities as
food, water, hotels, ice, gasoline,
lumber and equipment needed
as a direct result of an officially
declared emergency.
During last year's record-set-
ting hurricane season, the Attor-
ney General's Office received
8,91.1 complaints through its
price gouging hotline. The office
initiated 58 formal investigations
and filed 13 price gouging law-
suits against hotels, generator
businesses, tree removal compa-
nies and other businesses. To
date the Attorney General's
Office has recovered more than
$700,000 in restitution for Flori-
da consumers from settlements


and other resolutions. Other
investigations and settlement
negotiations are ongoing,
including two subpoenas served
as a result of Hurricane Dennis
price gouging allegations.
Under Florida law, a com-
modity's price is uncon-
scionable if the increase in the
price represents a "gross dispari-
ty" from the average price of that
commodity during the 30 days
immediately, prior to the
declared emergency. This
applies unless the increase is
attributable to additional costs
incurred by the seller or to
national or international market
trends.
Violators of the price gouging
statute are subject to civil penal-
ties of $1,000 per violation, up to
a total of $25,000 for multiple
violations committed in a single
24-hour period. A new law
enacted this year criminalizes
price gouging and provides that
during a declared state of emer-


agency, any person who offers
goods and services for sale to the
public without possessing an
occupational license commits a
second-degree misdemeanor.
Crist also cautioned con-
sumers to be wary of business
scams that might arise in the
wake of the flooding, including
building repair and tree removal
companies that come into
storm-affected areas. The Attor-
ney General said residents.
should deal whenever possible
with established local compa-
nies when they contract for
repairs or arrange financing to
pay for any repairs that might not
be covered by insurance.
Consumers should be wary
of any unsolicited "contractor"
who knocks on the door with an
offer to fix a damaged roof or
windows. Before signing any
contracts, Floridians should
check the contractor's license,
payment terms and other provi-
sions, Crist said.

State Farm and FHSAA promote sportsmanship


GAINESVILLE -In a new part-
nership designed to promote
sportsmanship and recognize
schools and individuals who
exemplify it, the Florida High
School Athletic Association
today announced State Farm
Insurance Companies as the sole
sponsor of the State Farm Sports-
manship Program and the
FHSAA's new Play Strong. Play
Hard. Play Fair. sportsmanship
campaign.
"This is an exciting relation-
ship because State Farm exem-
plifies the same values of team-
work, sportsmanship and
citizenship that our more than
175,000 student-athletes learn
through their participation in
interscholastic athletics," Dr.
John A. Stewart, Commissioner
of the FHSAA, said in making the
announcement. "State Farm has
a superb reputation as a corpo-
rate citizen on the national, state


and local levels. The FHSAA is
fortunate to have State Farm join
with us in this important endeav-
or."
State Farm has more than
2,900 employees, agents and
agents, staff in Florida and is the
state's largest insurer of homes
and automobiles. Its Florida
zone office is located in Winter
Haven.
"Good sportsmanship fits
perfectly with State Farm's 'good
neighbor'- philosophy," said Joe
Formusa, State Farm Senior Vice
President. "The value of sports-
manship is understated in
today's sporting arena. By
encouraging students to play
strong, play hard and play fair
we empower them to be not
only good sports but also good
neighbors."
The State Farm Sportsman-
ship Program will be conducted
on both statewide and grass-


roots levels. As a major corpo-
rate partner of the FHSAA and
sponsor of the Play Strong. Play
Hard. Play Fair. sportsmanship
campaign, State Farm will have a
visible presence at all FHSAA
Finals state championship
events, and will be recognized
during preliminary playoff
rounds on the district and
regional levels through the cam-
paign itself, which will consist of
'how to' sportsmanship manu-
als, posters, flyers, public-
address announcements and
other media. Locally, State Farm
agents will have the opportunity
to partner with FHSAA member
schools in their respective com-
munities to recognize student-
athletes in the various sports
programs who best exemplify
sportsmanship throughout the
season.
State Farm's sponsorship also
will extend to the FHSAA Fred E.


Rozelle Sportsmanship Awards,
which annually recognizes
deserving schools in each classi-
fication that best exemplify
sportsmanship throughout the
school year. The awards are
named for Fred E. Rozelle, who
was Commissioner of the Asso-
ciation from 1980 through 1991.
A statewide contest to name
the FHSAA's new sportsmanship
campaign was conducted during
the 2004-05 school year. Play
Strong. Play Hard. Play Fair.,
which was submitted by Jeremy
Brenner, a student at Southeast
High School in Bradenton, was
selected from 25 submissions as
the winner. Brenner, who will be
a senior this year, received two
guest credentials to the FHSAA
Finals event of his choice and an
FHSAA Finals goody bag, and
was recognized at the FHSAA
Awards Luncheon in June.
"The Florida School Boards


Association, the Florida Associa-
tion of District School Superin-
tendents and the FHSAA earlier
this year proclaimed the 2005-06
school year to be the year of
sportsmanship," Stewart said.
"The FHSAA Board of Directors
and office staff places a strong
emphasis on sportsmanship and
that is reflected in our newly
adopted four-year strategic plan.
Our partnership with State Farm
will make it possible for us to
implement the initiatives neces-
sary to achieve our goals and
objectives that pertain to sports-
manship."

FHSAA moves softball



pitcher back three feet


GAINESVILLE In an effort to
increase the safety of high school
fast-pitch softball pitchers, the
Florida High School Athletic
Association today announced
that it has been given permission
to experiment with moving the
pitching plate back three feet to a
distance of 43 feet from home
plate during the upcoming 2006
season.
The FHSAA Office also
announced that the 2006 and
2007 FHSAA Softball Finals state
championship tournament will
be played at Plant City Stadium.
Florida will be the only state to
experiment with the 43-feet
pitching distance modification. It
will apply to all varsity and junior
varsity softball games played in
Florida in which FHSAA member
schools compete. A team visiting
from out of state will be required
to agree in writing to participate
in the experiment before an
FHSAA member school can
schedule it. The experiment has
been approved by the National
Federation of State High School
Associations, which writes
national high school softball play-
ing rules.
Cecelia Jackson, FHSAA Direc-
tor of Athletics and a member of
the NFHS Softball Rules Commit-
tee, says that growing concerns
about the safety of the pitcher
precipitated the FHSAA Softball
Advisory Committee to recom-
mend that the FHSAA apply to the
NFHS for permission to conduct
the experiment.
"The pitching plate currently
is 40 feet from home plate," Jack-
son said. "But the pitching circle
itself is 16 feet in diameter. Conse-
quently, when most pitchers
complete their delivery they. are
just 32 feet from the batter and
they have virtually no time to
react in defense if the ball is lined
back at them. There have been
pitchers who have been seriously
injured as a result of taking line


Newberry


game


cancelled
The football game between
Webber International University
and Newberry College, scheduled
for Saturday, August 27, 2005, at I
p.m. at Legion Field was been
canceled by Newberry College.
WIU officials had not been offi-
cially notified of the cancellation
by Newberry, but according to
the Newberry College website,
www.newberryindians.com, the
game was posted canceled.
According to the Newberry web-
site, next years game, scheduled
to be played at Newberry, has
also been canceled.
All of the fans that had general
admission tickets to the WIU-
Newberry football game can use
those tickets for admission to this
Saturday's game as the Warriors
will now kick-off their season
against Wingate University. Game
time is 1 p.m. Saturday, Septem-
ber 3rd, at Legion Field in Lake
Wales.
"The cancellation of the New-
berry game was very unfortunate
for our fans, coaches and play-
ers," stated WIU Athletic Director,
Bill Heath. "All of our fans that
have general admission tickets for
last week can use, them this
week." This week's game will
now be the season opener for the
Warriors. Wingate, who defeated
West Virginia Wesleyan 51-10 last
week, will be a formidable oppo-
nent for the Warriors.
For more information on this
week's game, go to www.web-

drives in the face."
Jackson continued: "Moving
the pitching plate back to the col-
legiate distance of 43 feet, and the
pitching circle with it, will give
the pitcher the extra split-second
of reaction time she needs to
avoid those types of injuries."
The FHSAA Office will collect
data relative to the experiment
from member schools sponsor-
ing softball programs throughout
the season and present a summa-
ry of its findings to the NFHS Soft-
ball Rules Committee in June
2006.
The School District of Hillsbor-
ough County and the City of Plant
City Recreation and Parks Depart-
ment will co-host the FHSAA Soft-
ball Finals in Plant City. The tour-
nament will expand to six days
and will duplicate the single-

DOH urges prevention of mosquito-borne illnesses


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Department of Health (DOH) offi-
cials emphasize the importance
of Florida's residents and visitors
protecting themselves against
mosquito-borne diseases.
Throughout the year, DOH works
with partner agencies, including
the Florida Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Services,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission, mosquito control
agencies and state universities, to
monitor for the presence of mos-
quitoes carrying illnesses. So far
in 2005, Florida has reported four
confirmed cases of Eastern
Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and
eight confirmed cases of West
Nile (WN) virus. Nearly 20 coun-
ties have detected the presence of
WN virus in surveillance popula-
tions, while 46 counties have
reported EEE virus activity to
date.
"Mosquito-borne illnesses are
preventable by taking a few sim-
ple steps to avoid mosquito
bites," said DOH Secretary John
0. Agwunobi, M.D., M.B.A.,


M.P.H. "With most of the coun-
ties in Florida reporting the pres-
ence of at least one virus trans-
mitted by mosquitoes, it is critical
that all Floridians work to curb
the spread of these illnesses."
Symptoms of WN virus infec-
tions, St. Louis Encephalitis
(SLE), and EEE may include
headache, fever, fatigue, dizzi-
ness, weakness and confusion.
Physicians should contact their
County Health Department if they
suspect an individual may have a
mosquito-borne illness. DOH
laboratories provide testing serv-
ices for physicians treating
patients with clinical signs of
mosquito-borne disease.
There were a total of 42 con-
firmed human WN virus disease
cases resulting in two deaths in
Florida in 2004, compared to 94
cases with six deaths in 2003. In
2002, there were 35 cases with
two deaths. Additionally, no
human EEE or SLE cases were
reported in 2004 to the Florida
State Health Office.
DOH continues to advise the


public to remain diligent in their
protecting themselves from mos-
quito bites by following the "5
D's," which include:
Dusk and Dawn Avoid
being outdoors when mosqui-
toes are seeking blood. For many
species, this is during the dusk
and dawn hours.
Dress Wear clothing that
covers most of your skin.
DEET When the potential
exists for exposure to mosqui-
toes, repellents containing DEET
(N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide, or
N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide)
are recommended. Picaridin and
oil of lemon eucalyptus are other
repellent options.
Drainage Check around
your home to rid the area of
standing water, which is where
mosquitoes-can lay their eggs.
Tips on Repellent Use
Always read label directions
carefully for the approved usage
before applying a repellent to
skin. Some repellants are not suit-
able for children.
Products with concentra-


tions of up to 30 percent DEET
are generally recommended.
Other potential mosquito repel-
lents, as reported by the Centers
for Disease Control and Preven-
tion (CDC) in April 2005, contain
picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyp-
tus. These products are generally
available at local pharmacies.
Look for active ingredients to be
listed on the product label.
Apply insect repellent to
exposed skin, or onto clothing,
but not under clothing.
In protecting children, read
label instructions to be sure the
repellent is age-appropriate.
According to the CDC, mosquito
repellents containing oil of lemon
eucalyptus should not be used on
children under the age of 3 years.
DEET is not recommended on
children younger than 2 months
old.
Infants should be kept
indoors or mosquito netting
should be used over carriers
when mosquitoes are present.
Avoid applying repellents to
the hands of children. Adults


Food additives may increase health risks


should apply repellent first to
their own hands and then trans-
fer it to the child's skin and cloth-
ing.
If additional protection is
necessary, apply a permethrin
repellent directly to your clothing.
Again, always follow the manu-
facturer's directions.
Tips on Eliminating Mosquito
Breeding Sites
Elimination of breeding sites is
one of the keys to prevention.
Clean out eaves, troughs
and gutters.
Remove old tires or drill
holes in those used in play-
grounds to drain.
Turn over or remove empty
plastic pots.
Pick up all.beverage con-
tainers and cups.
Check tarps on boats or
other equipment that may collect
water.
Pump out bilges on boats.
Replace water in birdbaths


and pet or other animal feeding
dishes at least once a week.
Change water in plant trays.
including hanging plants, at least
once a week.
Remove vegetation or
obstructions in drainage ditches
that prevent the flow of water.
Additionally, officials encour-
age anyone who discovers a dead
bird to report it via the Internet.
The bird mortality reporting sys-
tem is located on the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission's website at: www.wild-
florida.org/bird/. If people do not
have access to the Internet, they
may report dead birds to their
county health department or
local FWCC office.
For more information on mos-
quito borne illnesses, visit the
DOH website at:
www.doh.state.fl.us, the CDC
website at: www.cdc.gov, or call
your local county health depart-
ment.


Concerns about foods contain-
ing high fructose corn syrup
(HFCS) are back in the news as
researchers link the food additive
to obesity, diabetes and heart prob-
lems.
Fruit is generally a healthy food.
Five to nine servings of fruits and
vegetables per day are recom-
mended on the USDA food pyra-
mid. And HFCS is found in a veg-
etable. So why isn't HFCS a
"healthy" choice? The answer goes
back to the issue of processed
foods: the human body is just not
designed to consume fructose in
this processed form.
When you eat an ear of corn,
you don't just consume the corn
syrup. You also consume the fiber
and vitamins in the corn. When
you consume products with HFCS,
you ingest refined sugars, without
any of the corn's vitamins or fiber,
and you consume it in a form not
found naturally.
According to the HFCS "white


A

Life


with Katrina Elsken


paper" published by the Corn
Industry, "the corn wet milling
industry makes HFCS from corn
starch using a series of unit
processes that include steeping
corn to soften the hard kernel;
physical separation of the kernel
into its separate components -
starch, corn hull, protein and oil;
breakdown of the starch to glu-
cose; use of enzymes to invert glu-
cose to fructose; removal of impu-
rities; and blending of glucose and
fructose to make HFCS-42 and
HFCS-55."


Naturally occurring sugars, like
sucrose, contain fructose bound to
other sugars. But high fructose
corn syrup has been chemically
altered and contains "free" fruc-
tose. This free fructose is metabo-
lized only in the liver and as a result
can put a strain on the liver and the
heart. According to a report by the
Weston A. Price Foundation,
research indicates this free fructose
interferes with the heart's use of
key minerals and has been linked
to elevated cholesterol levels.
Recent university studies indi-
cate there may be a link between
consumption of HFCS and. Type 2
diabetes. Type 2 is the form of dia-
betes that used to be called "adult
onset." The alarming rise in the
number of children suffering from
Type 2 Diabetes may be linked to
poor diet and consumption of too
many processed foods.
One study found that drinking
one soft drink or fruit beverage
containing HFCS per day can more

than double the risk of developing
Type 2 diabetes.
HFCS consumption has also
been linked to obesity because it
appears to promote fat storage in
the body. It's not enough to count
calories. The body processes some
calories differently from others.
Food manufacturers put HFCS
in foods because it is cheaper than
other sweeteners and because it
has a longer shelf life.
How can parents fight back?
*Read labels and avoid prod-
ucts containing HFCS. You may not
be able to control everything your
child eats outside your home, but
you can control the food and
drinks in your home.
*Encourage your children to
drink milk with meals and water
between meals.
elf they are old enough to be
concerned about their weight, start
teaching your children about nutri-
tion and how to make healthier
food choices.

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.


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