throughout many difficult days of

again for the school. The Ladv

The Lady Dawgs were seed-

playoffs. On Thursday evening, .~ ,
Feb. 2, the games started off
with Mulberry Panthers playing
the Lake Placid Dragons. Then
the Lad\ Bulldogs played McK-
eel Academy Wildcats. Mulber-
ry and Frostproof advanced to
the Championship game on Sat-
urday night. n
The Lady Dawgs played in
front of a crowd of 150 plus
spectators. Both teams came to
play basketball. But the Pan- I
others 'were not ready for our
Bulldogs. The Lady Dawgs held
Mulberry down for the whole
game. The final score was Frost-

The Lady Dawgs are now
concentrating on Regional play-
offs. On Thursday, Feb.9, 7 p.m.
the Lady Dawgs will host the
first round of the playoffs at

Oral rabies vaccine distributed
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced Feb. 2, that
his department, along with the
assistance of other state and
federal agencies and six coun-
ties, will begin baiting opera-
tions on February 14 to reduce
the incidence of rabies along
the highly populated Interstate 4
corridor south of Orlando.
Officials will distribute about
700,000 bait packs containing
an oral rabies vaccine from
fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters
,and trucks starting Feb. 14 and
continuing for two to three
weeks. The bait attracts rac-
coons, which are the primary
carriers of rabies in Florida.
"Our goal is to control rac-
coon rabies in this highly popu-
lated area," Mr. Bronson said.
"We are attempting to establish
a zone of immunized rac-
The six counties in which bait
will be dropped are Hernando,
Hillsborough, Lake, Pasco, Polk
and Sumter. Officials in those
counties, as well as those from
the Florida Department of
Health and the U.S. Department
of Agriculture's Wildlife Service,
will assist Bronson's department
in the program. The I-4 corridor
program is being funded by a
grant from USDA.
This will be the fourth year of
distributing oral rabies vaccine
from the west coast of the I-4
corridor to U.S. Highway 27. In
all, some 2,957 square miles will
Residents are asked to leave
bait packs alone and to keep pets
confined as much as possible
during the baiting period. While
the bait is not harmful to pets,
officials want to make sure that
there are a sufficient number of
them to treat the raccoons. The
bait poses no particular hazard to
humans either, but officials sug-
gest that anyone who handles
the material, especially the red
liquid vaccine portion in the mid-
dle of the bait, wash their hands
thoroughly with soap and water.
The bait will come in two
forms: The traditional version is a
matchbook-size fish meal block
containing a liquid oral rabies
vaccine inside. A new type of bait
is a small sachet similar in size to
a ketchup condiment packet that
will have an attractant applied to
its exterior to encourage rac-
coons to bite into the vaccine.
For more information, resi-
dents are encouraged to call their
local Health Departments or a
toll-hotline at 1-866-4USDA WS

WIU Professors to
chair symposium at
Webber International Univer-
sity's Chief Academic Officer (and
Associate Professor of Marketing)
Dr. Keith Wade and Assistant Pro-
fessor of Marketing Dr. Kelly
Wolfe have been selected to chair
the Incorporating Older Workers
into the Workplace symposium at
the 5th Global Conference on
Business and Economics to be
held at Cambridge University, in
Drs. Wade and Wolfe both did
human resources related
research for their respective doc-
toral dissertations. "The need to
keep workers working beyond
traditional 'retirement age' is clear
and evident" said Wade. "The
constantly changing workplace is
one of the many things we
emphasize to our students," said
Wolfe, "and the more age diverse
workplace is becoming a reality."
Wade and Wolfe are optimistic
about the quality of papers they
can expect to receive: "We are
hoping to get a wide array of
papers for our session. It's at
Cambridge, so we're sure there
will be some cutting edge
research presented," said Wade.
"We just couldn't be prouder,"
said University President Rex
Yentes. "International is not just
our middle name, but an impor-
tant part of our educational expe-
rience. We encourage scholar-
ship among our faculty and
administration, and we're certain-
ly excited to have a leadership
role in the global discourse on
business and economics."

da, Webber International Univer-
sity is a private, SACS accredited
independent university, offering
associate's, bachelor's, and mas-
ter's degrees exclusively in the

Camp Mack's River Resort,
known for fishing tournaments,

a 40-room motel to add to it's list of

of several visions new park own-

planned for the camp.
Liar's Lodge Motel was built out
of an opportunity the owners saw
to recruit more tournaments and
bring in additional anglers.

tomers are anglers who have trav-
eled a distance to enjoy the world-
class bass fishing that Central
Florida is known for," said Mark
Blackwelder, General Manager.
"With the large number of tourna-

felt Camp Mack would be more
appealing for tournament organiz--

for on-site lodging. It is also allows-
us to entice fishermen to extend

School district receives energy award
Energy management program
saves district more than $43 mil-
lion over 13 years School district
received Energy Lighthouse
Award at Jan. 24 board meeting
Polk County Public Schools
received the Energy Lighthouse
Award from Energy Education,
Inc. for the school district's energy
conservation program that has
saved the district more than $43
million since 1992. It is the second
time in four years that Polk Public
Schools has been recognized for
its efforts in energy conservation.
The school district also received
the award in 2002.
Energy Education, Inc. pre-
sented a plaque to the school dis-
trict at the school board meeting
on Tuesday, Jan. 24.
School district energy manage-
ment specialists work with school
personnel on energy conserva-
tion and management measures
and track energy consumption
using energy-accounting soft-
ware. They monitor electricity,
water, sewer, natural gas and fuel
oil and work to quickly identify
and correct areas showing prob-
lems with energy consumption.
Another emphasis is an examina-
tion of facilities' air conditioning,
heating, lighting and plumbing.
Recent data from the state
Department of Education shows
that Polk schools are below the
state average for energy costs. In
the latest data compiled by the
state, the square foot cost for all
energy in Polk schools is $ 0.67.
The state average is $1.03. Polk
ranks best among the 23 largest
Florida school districts for energy
Highlights of the savings dur-
ing the 13-year period include:
Air conditioned square
footage in school buildings
increased by 46.3 percent but
actual electrical consumption had
increased by only 9.2 percent dur-
ing that time.
Overall water and gas con-
sumption during that time has
decreased by 21.9 percent and
32.5 percent respectively during

A messy desk means a cluttered mind
Three times this past week I was
asked by people who have their
own businesses how to grow their
business. In each instance I asked
them how their desk looked! Not
one wanted to tell me what their
desk looked like! This is. when I
started to describe it for them. They
were in shock that I could do this.
Then I told them that their desk
was a representation of what was
going on in their head.
Each one of these business
owners had borrowed money to
make a go of their,business. They
had to come up with a business
plan to give to the bank. It all
looked so good on paper. Then
came putting the plan into action;
isn't that what happens to us? Did
you know that we all have busi-
nesses and our home represents
that capital investment!
We have such grand ideas and
go hog wild to begin to implement
them all at once; then we get tried
and crash and burn! Beating our-
selves up all along the way! How
can we find balance and consisten-
cy? I think the key is starting small!
Breaking. the grand plan down
into its parts and then establishing
simple habits for your morning,
afternoon and evening td keep you
on track with your grand plan. This
all sounds well and good but when
it comes right down to it there is
something that is standing in your
way! It is the clutter that is on your
desk and every flat surface in your
home and office. That clutter is
what is going on in your brain. We
have to quiet the clutter to get some
focus to our thinking.
My homework assignment -for
these entrepreneurs was to clear
off the top of their desks and do it
right this minute. This is exactly
What we do when we shine our
sinks. Take all the dishes out of the
sink and pile them on the floor if
you have to. 1 instructed them to
take the piles of papers on their
desk and set them on the floor. I
didn't care if they put them in a box
or not; they just had to get that clut-
ter off their desk. All I wanted to see
on their desk was the wood top.
That clutter keeps their minds
pulling them in several directions at
one time. You are never going to
plow a field if the horses are pulling
in two different directions. It is time
to put on the' blinders and use all
your brain power on one thing at
one time. By spending just 15 min-
utes each day plowing through
those piles you will eventually get
rid of your clutter.
Their next assignment was to
get a timer and put it on their desk.
Then to get a spiral notebook to
take notes on when they had an
idea; put this notebook on the side
of their desk closest to their writing
hand. This one thing will keep us
from getting sidetracked with our
outstanding ideas. All we have.to
do is jot them down and go back to
what we were working on. We are
very creative people,and we don't
want to squelch that creativity, we
want to focus it so we can finally
see an idea come to fruition.
I told them to set their timer for
15 minutes. Then I asked them to
get one sheet of paper and write
down a three step list of the things
they needed to do each morning to
start their work day. Then a three
step list for early afternoon and
then a three step list for stopping
work. I told then- thiis list could not
be more than three steps to start
with for each part of the day. This
was their daily routines. Each item
on their three step list was a habit
they were going to practice each
day to keep their business main-
In order to grow their business
they had to develop and use a basic
We all have things we need to
do every week to keep our homes
running; the same is true for busi-
nesses. You have to work on proj-
ects a little at a time, keep invento-
ries stocked, pay bills, talk with
your employees, run errands,
.make appointments; I thinkyou get
the picture. Oh and let's not forget
about the fun parts of being cre-
ative antid planning for the future. I,
had them list each day of the week
and beside that day give a focus for
the day. This.doesn't mean you
spend all day on that focus but just
to set aside some time that day for
it. For me it is my mornings. I take
care of what I need to in the morn-
ing and this frees me to play in the
Now here is the tough part! We
have to do this! Not just think about
doing it! Establish the habit of clear-
ing off our desk each night and
starting the new day with a clear
space in which to think. I have put
together an Office Control Journal
that you carndownload for free to
help you get started, but first things
first! Clear off the top of your desk'
