Tax holiday begins July 22


Nine-day sales tax holiday
expected to generate $39 million
in savings
Tallahassee -Governor Jeb
Bush encourages Floridians and
out-of-state shoppers alike to take
advantage of the state's sales tax
holiday, which takes effect on Sat-
urday July 22nd and runs until
midnight on July 30th. The sales
tax holiday is on books, clothing,
footwear, and certain school sup-
plies and is expected to save tax-
payers more than $39 million.
"1 am delighted that millions of


Floridians will again have the
opportunity to save money during
the sales tax holiday," said Gover-
nor Bush. "I'm particularly
pleased that shoppers will again
be able to save money on books.
Reading is a critical part of lifelong
learning and success, and the
sales tax holiday is a great way for
families to save money while
encouraging reading."
Under the sales-tax holiday
law, no state or local sales tax will
be charged on clothes, footwear,
books, and certain accessories


selling for $50 or less. School sup-
plies selling for $10 or less will be
tax-exempt as well during this
sales tax holiday period.
Savings include:
Shoppers will pay no state or
local option sales tax when buying
books with a sales price of $50 or
less.
Shoppers will pay no state or
local option sales taxes on pur-
chases of clothing, footwear, and
certain accessories with a sales
price of $50 or less per item.
Shoppers will pay no state or


local option sales tax on purchas-
es of certain school supplies with
a sales price of $10 or less per
item.
"This sales tax holiday has
always coincided with back-to-
school shopping timed to have
the maximum impact for Florida's
families as they purchase clothes,
shoes, books, and supplies," said
Senator Daniel Webster. "This is
an excellent tax break that helps
all Floridians."
"This legislation has become
an annual opportunity to support


Florida families with a back-to-
school shopping tax break," said
Representative Ray Sansom.
"We're helping millions of Floridi-
ans save money while preparing
for the new school year."
The sales tax holiday will save
shoppers an estimated $32.1 mil-
lion in state sales tax and an addi-
tional $7.2 million in county sales
taxes. Regular sales tax holidays
also were held in 1998, 1999,

ARC seeks students and instructors


Highlands County, FL You
walk into a room and find some-
one on the floor, apparently
unconscious, or you witness an
accident that has injured a co-
worker or a total stranger. Would
you know what to do?
The American Red Cross High-
lands County Service Center
wants to help. Health and Safety
trainers can help businesses,
schools, homeowners associa-
tions and private individuals to
have as many people as possible
certified in first aid, cardio-pul-
monary resuscitation, and the
proper use of an automated exter-
nal defibrillator (AED).
Knowing how to perform the
skills isn't enough. Training
includes how to assess a situa-
tion, asking for consent to care for
someone, contacting emergency
medical services early and provid-
ing the care needed until those
services arrive.
Art Harriman, service center
director, not only. wants to bring
people in to' take classes, he
needs people to teach them. Right
now, the county has 50 people
trained as instructors, most
assigned to their employers.
About 10-15 of them teach out-
side of work and about five make
up his corps of volunteer instruc-
trS ,
"\\e need to increase the
,iurnbt)et of classes, but also the
number of instructors who will
teach off hours," Harriman said.
That includes not only first aid
and CPR instructors, but .also
babysitting class instructors..
.Some versions of the class teach
CPR and first aid training.
Even people who have been
trained need fresh training. The
Occupational Safet\ and Health
Admniristiration recommn-endation
Is, to retain people ever\ year.
Techniques have changed. Once
.a person once gave a breath \\ ith
every 15 chest compressions,
Sno\I it's tw c breaths for e ery 30.
S Harrimadn has taught CPR for
rnore than 25 sears, even while a
teacher in both public and private
school. He's used it only four
times including once on the,
; gh\\.a at a motor vehiclee acci-
' dent
It's also ]-erNyeasy to forget the
physicaeffort needed to perform
CPR Exercises in training may last.
for t\wo minutes straight, he said.
In ealitv, a person may be doing.
CPR ,five or .seven minutes for
emeigericy medical services to


arrive, Harriman said. It can't stop
once it starts.
Even in the best of times, that's
a critical amount of time to give
CPR, Harriman said. During a hur-
ricane in a shelter without power,
phones, a nurse or emergency
medical services available, a per-
son trained in CPR may be the
only difference between life and
death for a person, Harriman
said.
"You feel inadequate even
when you are doing it. You worry
if you can do it better. 'Am I doing
it right?'" Harriman said. "With-
'out training and retraining, I
wouldn't feel confident to do it."
Harriman said all new parents
should have this training, for the
sake of their children. Whenever
he's invited to a baby shower, he
gives free CPR and first aid classes
as gifts.
For more, information on
Health and Safety training classes
through the Highlands County
American Red Cross Service Cen-
ter, contact Art Harriman or Emer-
gency Services Specialist Glenn
Fowler at (863) 386-4440, or by e-
mail at hcarc@strato.net.

Florida ma natees still listed as endang ered


S: he state of Florida recently
""bowed to political pressures to
redefine the World Conservation
Union's ILICN criteria for endan-
gered species, calling them
"Threatened" instead of
"Endangered." Patrick Rose,
recently appointed as executive
director of Save the Manatee
Club, advises the public not to
be misled. into thinking the
endangered manatees' future is
secure.
Although the manatee is still
l listed as Endangered at the led-
eral level and is recommended
; for endangered status at the
international level, the state's
plan to downlist manatees pre-
maturely could have grave
future consequences for the
manatee population since most
protections for manatees are
S implemented at the state level,"
Mr. Rose said. "Even though Ihe
Florida Fish & Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWCi
insists protection for Florida's
official state marine mammal
S won't change, a review of Flori-
da law shows endangered
species receive more protection
than threatened species." The
.commission claims [he Manage-
ment Plan they'll devise will pro-
tect the manatees, but Pat Rose
,says Florida's Legislature will be
pressured by powerful lobbying


aThe Kidz Korner, a Children's
Ministry of First Baptist Church of
Frostproof, invite all children
Kindergarten through grade 5 to a
special Back to School event. Sal-
urday, Aug. 5, 4:30-7:30 p.m.
Play Off- compete with your

cific games and activities
Cool Off- with water activi-
ties (Slip and Slide, Water Slide,
Water Balloon Dodge Ball, and


interests to reduce the agency's
authority) and funding used for
manatee protection efforts
According to F\\C's scien-
tists, the manatee population
could be reduced by as much as
50 percent in the future from
growing human-related threats,
red tide, and habitat loss. Statis-
tics also show boat strikes con-
tinue to kill manatees in near-
record numbers.
During winter months, mana-
tees use the warm %wa[er dis-,
charges of power plants ,-s
aging plants are closed, these
discharges will no longer be
available to manatees seeking
refuge from the cold. Similarly,
-the natural springs that mana-
tees also depend on for winter
refuges are being degraded from
pollution, and spring flows are
decreasing from development
pressures w within spring water-
sheds. There are mounting con-
cerns that the loss of these win-r
ter habitats could cause
catastrophic future losses in the
manatee population.
Mr. Rose; who officially
assumed the title of Executive
Director on July 1, is no stranger
to the manatees' plight or to the
organization. He has been
Director of Government Rela-
Stidns for the Club since 1996 and
,has over 30 years' experience

working with' manatees His
extensive background includes
advocating for manatees before
the Florida Legislature, Gover-
nor and Cabinet. Rose was the
first federal Manatee Recovery
Activities Coordinator and Flori-
da's first Manatee, and Marine
NMammal Coordinator,. Working,
at the state's Marine Research
Laboratory in St. Petersburg. he
implemented and oversaw Flori-
da's manatee and marine manm-
mrial research and management
programs. He also went on to'
head the state's Office of Pro-
tected Species in Tallahassee
where he provided overall poli-
cy guidance and direction for
statewide recovery efforts for
endangered and protected
marine species until 1996. Rose
served as a member of each fed-
eral Manatee Recovery Team


and is a former remember of the
I.U.C.N World Conserainon
Union Sirenia Specialist Group.
He has won numerous profes-
sional awards and has a Mas-
ter's degree in aquatic biology
from the University of Missouri
at Kansas City and a Certifica-
tion *in Public -Management
(CPM) from Florida State Uni-
versity.
Judith Vallee, who was Save
the Manatee Club's Executive
Director for the past 21 years,
handed the torch over to Pat so,
she could pursue other interests,
hut she will also continue to be
involved with the Club as a part-
time fund raiser. "I'm happy that
such a dedicated and qualified
professional will lead .the Club,"
Vallee said.
When Patrick Rose isn't bus\
working, he often can be found


diving and taking photos of man-
atees or enjoying a day fishing
with friends and family. "Ever
since the fourth grade, I knew I
wanted to work with manatees,"
said Mr. Rose. "They are victims
of our fast-paced, non-stop
growth. With good, long-range
plans, we can and must.
ensure a place in Florida's future
for the manatee. The FWC
would have you believe that
manatees are doing just fine, but
their own data show' that in
some parts of their range their
numbers are already decreasing.


Wilh the human population ol
Florida growing by leaps and
bounds, the future of the mana-
tee is far Irom secure," stated Mr.
Rose.
Helen Spivey, Co-Chair of
Save the Manatee Club's Board
of Directors said, "I have known,:
Pat .Rose for years and can.
assure everyone he will wor)
diligently to ensure that mana-
tees are actually recovered and
help others understand that
manatees are just not ready to
be do\ enlisted or have protec-
lion measures weakened."
