Black History Month celebrated


Historic Bok Sanctuary cele-
brates Black History Month with
a play the whole family will
enjoy. "George Washington
Carver: From Slave to Scientist"
is a must-see inspirational and
educational program that brings
American history to life, high-
lighting the life of one of the'
most extraordinary Americans
who ever lived.
Through Jim Spencer's capti-
vating performance, you will
experience Carver's early strug-


gles and quest for an education,
career as an artist as well as what
defined his years as a teacher
and inventor. School groups are
invited to attend a special out-
door performance on Friday,
Jan. 13, at 11 a.m. On Saturday,
Jan. 14, the public can attend the
matinee performance at 11 a.m.
or evening performance at 7:30
p.m. in the Visitor Center's Ori-
entation Theater.
Born into slavery at the end of
the Civil War, Carver devoted his


later life to research projects that
revolutionized agricultural sci-
ence and the Southern economy.
Dr. Carver was not just a world-
renowned scientist and a
teacher, but also religious, artis-
tic and musical. He won the
friendship and esteem of distin-
guished people worldwide
much like Edward Bok. He com-
municated with Gandhi, was
well-acquainted with Thomas
Edison and enjoyed a close
friendship with Henry Ford.


Area News: SFCC hosts Jazz concert


Written, produced, and
directed by Robin Lane, this one-
man play has been on tour at
schools, colleges, libraries and
museums throughout the east
coast. Lane has gained a fine
reputation for her captivating
portrayals of historical figures,
and she considers Carver one of
her most endearing and interest-
ing subjects. One critic wrote of
her productions, "Lane brings
her characters to startling life
with the use of props, costumes,


a poetically-written script, and
creative performing artistry."

Duo pays tribute to saxophonists


The South Florida Commu-
nity College Jazz Series will
open its 2006 season with "A
Tribute to Zoot and Al," featur-
ing Terry Myers and John Orsi-
ni, on Saturday, Jan. 7, at 7:30
p.m., at the SFCC University
Center Auditorium on the
Highlands Campus in Avon
Park. It is co-sponsored by Bill
and Lisa Jarrett and Highlands
Today.
In the late 1940s, the Woody
Herman Orchestra produced
some of this country's greatest
jazz musicians. Among them
were two of the finest saxo-
phone players of their genera-
tion, Zoot Sims, of California,
and Al Cohn, of Brooklyn.
Despite having been raised
3,000 miles apart, Sims and
Cohn immediately discovered
that they were both disciples of
the style of Lester Young, the
legendary tenor saxophonist of
the Count Basie Orchestra.
Their phrasing, sounds, and
swinging concept of playing
forged an instant connection
between them. Their mutual
affiliation with the Woody Her-
man Orchestra became the

Young, the legendary tenor saxophonist of the
Count Basie Orchestra.


start of a musical association
and friendship that lasted their
entire lives.
John Orsini, of Kent, Ohio,
and Terry Myers, of Des
Moines, Iowa, grew up admir-
ing Sims and Cohn and have
committed themselves to
keeping their music alive. Like
their idols, Orsini and Myers
developed an immediate affini-
ty for each other's styles when
they first began performing
together in the early 1980s.
Orsini has toured with The
Glenn Miller Orchestra, The
Les Brown Band, The Tommy
Dorsey Orchestra, and The
Bob Crosby Bob Cats to name
a few. Myers has played with

The Tommy Dorsey Band, The
Bob Crosby Band, Les Elgart's
Band, Tex Beneke Band, the


Bill Allred Classic Jazz Band,
and The Black Dogs Jazz Band.
Orsini and Myers settled in
Orlando in the 1980s. Orsini
has been on the staff of Walt
Disney World for the past 23
years, while Myers has toured
internationally and performed
at jazz festivals throughout the
United States and Europe.
For tickets to this nostalgic
evening of jazz music, call the
SFCC Box Office weekdays,
11:30 a.m. 2:30 p.m., at ext.
7178, 453-6661, 465-5300, 773-
2252, or 494-7500. The direct
line is 784-7178. On the
evening of the concert, tickets
may be purchased in the lobby

A Law Enforcement Auxil-
iary (Reserve) Academy-
designed to provide the basic
law enforcement training
required to serve as a reserve
law enforcement officer- is in
the works at Polk Community
College's Kenneth C. Thomp-
son Institute of Public Safety.
The 6-month long academy
would provide the state-
required training and certifica-
tion necessary to serve as a
reserve/auxiliary law enforce-
ment officer in Florida. Classes
would be offered in the
evenings to help accommo-
date work schedules. Upon
graduation from the program,
candidates will possess the
required training and certifica-
tion to serve as reserve/volun-
teer with full law enforcement
powers, when under the


supervision of a full-time offi-
cer.
The program is in the plan-
ning and implementation
stages, and could possibly be
offered in early 2006. Interest-
ed participants should contact
Mr. Mark LeVine or Ms. Belinda
Brown at 863-297-1030 to
obtain additional information
about the future program.
The Polk County Sheriff's
Office strongly supports the

Science Fair project ideas now online


Tallahassee Do you know a
student who is looking for a sci-
ence fair project idea? The Flori-
da Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services would like to
help in the search by encourag-
ing students to consider a topic in
agriculture.
The Department has devel-
oped "Planet Ag," a web site
designed to assist middle and
high school students in develop-
ing a science fair topic and seeing
the project through to comple-
tion. The site can be accessed at
http://www.florida-
agriculture.com/PlanetAg.
"A science fair project is a
great way to begin to learn about
agricultural science," Florida
Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson said. "Agricul-
tural science is the science of
growing plants, breeding ani-
mals, and producing food. It's an
exciting field, and it's vital to the
future of Florida and our nation.
This web site allows students to
begin to explore the world of
agricultural science and to start to
think about the many interesting
questions and challenges associ-
ated with food production."
Planet Ag provides students
with an explanation of the scien-


tific method, the step-by-step
process that will enable them to
complete their science fair proj-
ect. Students learn how to come
up with a hypothesis, decide on a
procedure for the experiment,
record the results, and come to a
conclusion based on those
results.
Planet Ag also offers practice
projects for students to review
and presents topic ideas in the
areas of biochemistry, botany,
chemistry, engineering, environ-
mental sciences, medicine and
health, microbiology, and zoolo-
gy. Among the dozens of topic
ideas included on the web site
are:
How can animal pests be
genetically controlled?
Why do salts build up in
soils? How can this be avoided?
Do different colors attract
different kinds of pollinators?
How many insects will a
common insect predator, such as
a toad or a praying mantis, eat in
one day?
How is seed shape associ-
ated with seed dispersal?
Integrating agriculture into the
science curriculum is a very
important process. More and
more rural areas are becoming


urbanized and families are
becoming further removed from
their agricultural roots. Bringing
agriculture into the classroom
provides students with an oppor-
tunity to learn where their food
comes from. It also allows them
to move beyond book learning
and get hands-on experience in
science.
"Associating science lessons
with 'real world' experiences like
growing a garden or raising ani-
mals makes learning relevant to
students' lives," Bronson said.
"Performance improves, and kids
begin to think about career
ideas."
A visit to Planet Ag might be
the first step toward a career in
agricultural science. The web site
examines many interesting
career possibilities in agriculture-
including veterinarian, aquacul-
turist, plant pathologist, forester,
and agricultural economist-and
offers suggestions to students on
courses to consider in high
school and college. It also pro-
vides an overview of the impor-
tance of agriculture in Florida.
There's an added incentive for
students to consider an agricul-
tural topic for their science fair
project. Bronson will present a


$1,000 United States Savings
Bond to junior and senior division
students whose agricultural proj-
ects are selected as winners dur-
ing the 51st Annual State Science
and Engineering Fair of Florida in
2006.
The winners of the savings
bond at the 2005 science fair
were Sravya R. Keremane of
Gainesville in the senior division
and Briana E. Lytton of Naples in
the junior division. Keremane
analyzed transgenic citrus and
tomato for cold tolerance, and
Lytton studied the effects of acid
on sugarcane growth.
The State Science and Engi-
neering Fair of Florida is a three-
day display of science project
exhibits prepared by aspiring sci-
entists and engineers in grades 6
through 12 from throughout the
state. The fair is administered by
the Florida Foundation for Future
Scientists, which promotes activi-
ties that encourage young people
to pursue careers in science,
engineering, and research. The
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services is
among numerous government
agencies, businesses, and organi-
zations that contribute awards for
the fair.

Coming soon National



Folic Acid Awareness week


Healthy Start Coalition of
Hardee, Highlands and Polk
Counties, Inc., is joining with
the National Council on Folic
Acid (NCFA) in launching
National Folic Acid Awareness
week, January 9-15, 2006. This,
initiative will increase aware-
ness of folic acid consumption
as a key strategy for optimal
health as well as before preg-
nancy.
Folic Acid is a B vitamin nec-
essary for proper cell growth. It
helps the baby's neural tube,
the part of a developing baby
that becomes the brain and
spinal cord develop properly
when taken before and very
early in pregnancy. A baby is
born with a very serious birth
defect called a neural tube
defect (NTD) when the neural
tube does not close properly.
About 3,000 children are born
each year in the United States
with a neural tube defect: Spina
bifida, the most common NTD,
is the leading cause of child-
hood paralysis and presents life-
long challenges for affected
families.
Research has shown that if
adequate amounts of folic acid
are consumed before concep-
tion and during pregnancy, up to
70% of neural tube defects can
be prevented. The U.S. Centers


for Disease Control and Preven-
tion recommends that women
consume no more than 1,000
micrograms of synthetic folic
acid a day.
Women of childbearing age
should consume 400 micro-
grams of folic acid by taking a
multivitamin daily as part of a
healthy diet, in addition to a vari-
ety of foods that contain folate,
the natural form of the vitamin,
(fortified breakfast cereals,
beans, leafy green vegetables
and orange juice) are some
examples of foods containing
folic acid.
Folic acid plays an important
role in the production of normal
red blood cells. Folic acid may
reduce the risk of birth defects,
such as cleft lip, cleft palate,
heart defects, and of cardiovas-


cular disease, Alzheimer's dis-
ease, and colon, cervical and
breast cancer. We encourage
everyone to take 400 micro-
grams of folic acid every day.

folic acid and National Folic Acid
Awareness Week, visit the Web
site of the National Council on
Folic Acid, www.flicacidinfo.org
or contact your local Healthy
Start Coalition of Hardee, High-
land and Polk, Inc. at: (863) 297-

The Healthy Start Coalition of
Hardee, Highland & Polk, Inc., is

tion whose mission is to build

promote and support healthy
pregnancies, babies and fami-
lies in Hardee, Highlands and

Arrest made in


investment scam


IALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son announced today the arrest
of a Central Florida man in a
$51,000 investment scam.
Charged with grand theft,
sale of securities without being
registered, engaging in fraudu-
lent transactions and failing to
register as a securities dealer
was William R. Holbrook Jr., 55,
of Auburndale. He was arrested
by Bronson's Office of Agricul-
tural Law Enforcement (OALE)
earlier today and booked into
the Polk County Jail in lieu of
$15,000 bail.
According-to OALE officers
who investigated the case, Hol-
brook swindled a Central Flori-
da couple by persuading them
to invest more than $51,000 in


cattle future contracts, promis-
ing them they would get their
initial investment back plus 50
percent of the profits. The
defendant received 9 checks
irom the investors during the
past year, authorities said.
While the couple received a
portion of their money back,
they did not receive it all and
no evidence whatsoever was
uncovered to suggest that Hol-
brook invested any of it in any
cattle-related activity.
Bronson's law enforcement
office was assisted in the case
by the Department of Financial
Services, which investigates
securities fraud. The case will
be prosecuted by the State
Attorney's Office in Hillsbor-
ough County.

County's new system


aids in healthcare


Polk County now has a live
computer information system
that allows health and social
services agencies to connect to
a shared database-making it
possible for a single entry point
for the county's uninsured and
underinsured. This Shared
Client Information System
(SCIS) will assist users in finding
health promoting programs in
which they are eligible. It is
designed to assist clients in find-
ing a medical home and to
reduce overall health care costs
by reducing inappropriate use,
such as emergency room visits
for non-urgent care.
In 2004, the Board of County
Commissioners and the Polk
HealthCare Alliance submitted a
Healthy Community Access Pro-
gram (HCAP) grant to the
Health Resource and Services
Administration (HRSA) for the
development of the SCIS.
The computer system
entered into Phase I in early
December and will enter in to
Phase II (where six more agen-
cies will go on line) in January.
Agencies will continue to be
phased in until all those interest-
ed are linked to the system. Eli-
gible agencies include health or
human service agencies that
provide services to low income
and uninsured/underinsured
residents and are voting or asso-
ciate members of the Polk
Health Care Alliance (PHCA).


Talk about

the issues

effecting

you!

The Polk County HCAP pro-
gram manager will conduct
training sessions every two
weeks for new users, as well as
to teach new enhancements
made to the system.

Pet owners warned to

watch for toxic products


Tallahassee -Florida Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son today cautioned pet owners
against feeding their animals
any of 19 Diamond Pet Food
products that are made with
corn and produced at the com-
pany's Gaston, South Carolina,
facility.
Bronson's warning was
issued in the wake of the com-
pany's recall of the products,
which was precipitated by Dia-
mond's discovery of aflatoxin in
a product manufactured at the
company's South Carolina
plant. Aflatoxin is a naturally
occurring toxic chemical by-
product from the growth of fun-
gus on corn and some other
crops.
The company has halted the
distribution of the products to
retail stores, and consumers
who already have purchased the
products are being asked to
return them to the location at
which they were purchased for
a refund.
Meanwhile, inspectors in
Bronson's department are
checking feed stores, pet stores
and other locations which sell
Diamond Pet Food products to
make sure that all of the suspect
products have been removed
from store shelves.
The specific products subject
to the recall are:
Diamond Low Fat Dog Food.
Diamond High Energy Dog


Food.
Diamond
Food.
Diamond
Food.
Diamond


Maintenance Dog
Performance Dog
Premium Adult


Dog Food.
Diamond Puppy Food.
Diamond Maintenance Cat
Food.
Diamond Professional Cat
Food.
Country Value Puppy.
Country Value Adult Dog.
Country Value High Energy
Dog.

Professional Chicken and
Rice Senior Dog Food.
Professional Reduced Fat
Chicken and Rice Dog Food.
. Professional Adc~Pog Food.
Professional Large Breed
Puppy Food.
Professional Puppy Food.
Professional Reduced Fat Cat
Food.
Professional Adult Cat Food.
Pet food lots covered in the
recall have a "G" (in reference to
Gaston) as the 11th or 12th char-
acter in the date code on the
package, and contain date
codes from "Best By 01-March-
07" through "Best By 10-June-
07."
For more information about
the products, consumers and
retailers are being asked to call
Mark Brinkman at Diamond Pet
Food, who can be reached at
(573) 229-4203. They can also
check the company's web site at
http://www.diamondpet.com.
Meanwhile, Bronson is advis-
ing any pet owners whose ani-
mals may have consumed any of
the products and are showing
symptoms of illness, including
lethargy, a reluctance to eat, yel-
lowish tint to the eyes or gums,
and severe diarrhea, to consult
their veterinarians immediately.

NOTICE
Independent Newspapers will
never accept any advertise-

of questionable value, such
as promises of guaranteed
income from work-at-home

good to be true, chances are
that it is. If you have ques-

on these pages, we advise
that before responding or
sending money ahead of

Some 800 and 900 telephone
numbers may require an ex-
tra charge, as well as long
distance toll costs. We will do
our best to alert our reader of
these charges in the ads, but
occasionally we may not be
aware of the charges. There-
fore, if you call a number out

Quail decline linked to development


GAINESVILLE, Fla. It's quail
hunting season, but where are the
birds?
Loss of habitat for the northern
bobwhite quail the nation's
most popular game bird is
blamed for its sharp decline in the
Southeast, according to a University
of Florida wildlife conservationist,
who says improved land manage-
ment practices will help restore the
species.
More intensive forestry and agri-
cultural practices, urban sprawl,
and other types of development are
important factors in their decline,
causing bobwhite quail popula-
tions to drop by two-thirds since
1980, said Bill Giuliano, an assistant
professor with UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
Florida hunters once harvested
more than 2 million quail each year,
but they now take fewer than
250,000.
Several nongame birds such as
burrowing owls, crested caracaras,
eastern meadowlarks and spar-
rows that share habitats with bob-
whites are also experiencing long-
term and large-scale declines.
In much of the Southeast, bob-
white numbers are only a small
fraction of what they were only 25
years ago, he said. Continued loss
and alteration of habitat through
changing land management prac-
tices and development threaten the
future of quail in Florida and the
region. Similar problems are affect-


ing quail populations in other areas
of the nation where the birds live in
wide variety of habitats.
Mr. Giuliano said the length of
the hunting season November
through March does not appear
to be a major factor in their decline.
However, considering these habitat
,problems, there may be a need for
some new scientifically based regu-
lations to manage the harvest.
"To bring the bird's population
back to 1980 levels in the Southeast,
some 81 million acres of habitat
need to be restored, and we are
working with several public and
private agencies to encourage that,
primarily on private lands," Mr. Giu-
liano said.
Plans for restoring habitat are
being developed by UF researchers
in cooperation with scientists at the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission, the U.S. Geologi-
cal Survey and the Tall Timbers
Research Station in Tallahassee.
To educate landowners, man-
agers, hunters and quail enthusiasts
on the ecology and management of
bobwhite, the UF extension service
and the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Service recently held
a quail management short course
in Arcadia, Fla. Mr. Giuliano, who
coordinated the coute, said similar
programs will be presented annual-
ly.
Carlos Alfonso, a UF trustee and
outdoorsman from Tampa who
attended the short course in Arca-


dia, said quail hunting is a valuable
tradition that deserves to be pro-
tected. "There has been a dramatic
decline in quail populations, and
we welcome efforts by UF and
other public and private agencies to
restore this ecosystem in Florida
and the Southeast," he said.
Mr. Giuliano said quail biologists
generally agree that nesting and
ground- plant covers needed for
brood-rearing are important factors
across most of the species range in
Florida and the Southeast.
"While the birds still thrive on
large, intensively managed quail
plantations in North Florida, their
numbers have declined in South
Florida where changing land- use
patterns have altered their preferred
habitat," Giuliano said. "In fact, the
landscape has changed so much
that extensive tracts of land have
become completely unproductive
for quail."
He said vast acreages have been
cleared for citrus groves and
improved pastures. Concerns from
urban residents about smoke often
prevent land managers from using
controlled burns to control exces-
sive plant growth that may be unde-
sirable for quail. For example, pal-
metto is beneficial for quail when it
covers small areas of pastureland,
but it becomes detrimental when
the coverage is extensive.
Jim Selph, UF DeSoto County
Extension Director in Arcadia, said
many agricultural practices, includ-


ing livestock grazing, are often
blamed for the loss and degrada-
tion of habitat for quail and other
wildlife. However, in many range-
land systems, grazing can actually
be an effective management tool to
create and maintain a good habitat
for quail, he said.
The ideal quail habitat often
referred to as a "crazy quilt" of
plants scattered about the land-
scape includes small patches of
bunchgrasses for nesting cover,
weeds for foraging and other
shrubs such as palmetto for escape
cover, he said.
Mr. Selph, a livestock expert,
said moderate grazing, which usu-
ally results in more open and
diverse rangeland, produces the
best habitat for quail.
Heavy grazing, particularly
when shrubs and other non-forage
plants are being controlled, may
lead to a "golf-course effect," pro-
viding little forage for cattle and no
food or cover for quail.
"Unfortunately, there is no
magic stocking rate or number of
animals that will always provide
moderate grazing intensity and
maintain the crazy-quilt that quail
need," Mr. Selph said. Mr. Giuliano
said habitat restoration and possi-
bly predator management prac-
tices can boost quail populations.
Predators, which kill many quail
each year in Florida, include
armadillos, bobcats, hawks, owls,
raccoons and snakes.

Loss of habitat in Florida and the Southeast has caused bob-
white quail populations to drop by two-thirds since 1980.
Northern bobwhite quail (Colinus virginianus) is a small,
chunky, short-tailed, round-winged, ground-dwelling bird
that is about eight inches tall.
