Townhouse plans considered


By Cindy Monk
Frostprof News
UrbanCore Development is
hopeful the city will approve their
plan to build a six unit town-
house condominium on the
property located on the northeast
corner of First and Oak Street.
UrbanCore is requesting the
property to be rezoned by the
City's Planning Board. If the


rezoning passes, they will apply
for a variance.
UrbanCore/Orange Bend rep-
resentative and spokesperson
Carl Cheatham expressed con-
cern over the lack of adequate
posting of scheduled Public Plan-
ning Meetings. He said he had
almost missed last Monday's
meeting because of this.
The city and Mr. Cheatham


would be looking into handicap
laws regarding parking and
access pertaining to townhouses.
Local resident Henry Smith
said he opposes the townhouses
being built in this location. He
said he felt it wasn't the best loca-
tion for that type of housing and,
feels the city would be making a
mistake by allowing them to be
built.


Councilmember Kay Hutzel-
man said she had traffic con-
cerns since the Elementary
school is so close to the pro-
posed site. Councilmember
Larry Sullivan said he was doubt-
ful that a six unit townhouse with
a 12 space parking lot would cre-
ate a large increase in traffic.
Councilmember' Mike Denby
said he didn't have a problem


with the townhouses being built
in Frostproof. He went on to say
didn't think that was the best
location.
Estelle Sullivan stepped up to
the podium and stated Frostproof
is "behind the times" and
because of this there would be
growing pains. She also said
housing development is desper-
ately needed in Frostproof.


Will budget cuts


eliminate FPPD?


By Cindy Monk
Frostproof News
The Frostproof City Council
is in search of ways to save
money. According to the coun-
cil they've been contacted by
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd
with an offer to provide Frost-
proof City limits with deputy
service. The council said that
the city could save anywhere
from a quarter of a million to as
much as 375,000 dollars by
allowing the PCSO to provide
service hours. The council.
agreed to contact Sheriff Judd
and invite him to attend a Pub-
lic Forum.
This topic raised a lot of
questions from residents
attending the Regular City
Council Meeting held July 24.,


Residents spoke out concern-
ing their willingness to be
annexed into the city limits for
the benefit of being provided
with timely ,police response.
Some citizens living outside the
city limits attending Monday's
meeting said the usual
response time from the PCSO is
45 minutes to an hour if you're
lucky.
Several residents expressed
enjoying the' peace of mind
knowing if you call the FPPD,
the response is anywhere from
two to ten minutes. Concerns
rose over the amount of cover-
age hours and .manpower the
city limits would receive, if the
council decided- to allow the
PCSO to add Frostproof to the
co ur ni 's coverage area.

Ready your boat for storm season


By Midde Anderson
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE Boat own-
ers should prepare for a hurri-
cane now, not when a storm is'
bearing down on them, a Univer-
sity of Florida Sea Grant specialist
warns.
Bob Wasno, based in Fort
Myers with the UF-affiliated
coastal research and education
program, reminds boat -owners
that preparation is imperative and
procrastination can be danger-
ous.
"Each and every boat is going
to be a little different," he said.
'"And there's a whole checklist of
things that need to be done."
First on that list: Decide where
to put your boat when a storm is
on the way. '
Boats that are stored ashore
are much more likely to escape
damage than those stored in the
water, officials say.
"It's not necessarily the safest
place when you're in a, marina
with 50 other boats. Chances are
that one of them is not going to
be tied down right," he said.
"And just one loose boat can
damage many others," Wasno
,said.
If your boat is on land, the best
place is inside a garage. If that's
not feasible, parking the boat and


trailer away from trees but close
to a building is a good bet.
Let some air out of the trailer
tires and block the wheels so it
woh't roll. Wooden. blocks
should be placed between the
trailer's frame and springs, and
the boat filled rno more than
halfwaywith water. Then lash the
boat to the ground at all four cor-
ners.
For boats kept at a marina,.
preparations are even trickier.
That's why Leif Lustig, dock-
master at the Fort Myers Yacht
Basin, says he and his staff begin
reminding their patrons many
of them people who live on their
boats early in the season to start
preparing.
Though procrastination is
human, Lustig says they do their
best to counter it.
"I think that's pretty much the
way people think. But I think
we've got 'it a little more in their
minds to get ready here," he said.
"And if we can keep anybody's
insurance premiums down, the
better offwe all are."
One of the most important
things boat owners forget is to
have duplicate copies of owner-
ship paperwork, such as the
boat's registration, stored some-
place other than on the boat,
where it can easily be damaged,
Lustig said.


"Mail it to your mother in Pad-
ucah, I don't .care, just have it
someplace olf the boat," hesaid.
Among their other recom-
mendations:
Remove any gear, such as
canvas tops, that can act as a sail.
Anything on deck that can't
be removed, such as chairs, cush-
ions or grills, should be lashed.
Dock lines should be dou-
bled, at a minimum, and should
be as long as possible to accom-
modate storm surge.
You'll need chafing gear at
all rub points. There are ready-
made types of chafe protection,
or garden hose is another option.
In a pinch, using duct tape to bind
heavy canvas or denim to the
lines can work.
Make sure bilge pumps
work.
If the boat is in a slip,. it's
best to tie it so that it's in the mid-
dle, rather than close to the dock,
to keep the boat from banging
into the dock.
When the boat is secure
and the storm is imminent, head
for higher ground. Trying to ride
out a storm on a boat is a terrible
idea.
If you're a part-time resi-
dent, make sure there is a perma-
nent resident who can act as your
boat's caretaker.

Child saft

WASHINGTON, D.C. Con-
gressman Mark Foley (R-FL), Co-
chairman of the Missing and
Exploited Children Caucus,
applauded Senate passage last
week of legislation he authored
and introduced overhauling our
nation's sex offender registration
and notification laws.
"For too long our nation has
tracked library books better than
it has sex offenders. That day is
coming to an end," said Foley.
"Senator Hatch and Leader Frist
have been resolute in keeping this
legislation on track. We are clos-
ing loopholes that sex offenders
and pedophiles have used to prey
on children."
Included in the legislation are
provisions Foley authored and
introduced last year. Highlights of
the Foley Provisions in H.R. 4472,
the Adam Walsh Child Protection
and Safety Act of 2006 include the
following.
The bill creates new, tougher
registration requirements for sex
Offenders.
It expands existing offenses
against children: The bill adds,
among other things, the "use of
the Internet to facilitate or commit
a crime against a minor" as one
that will trigger registration.
For the first time, the sex
offender law will cover "federally
recognized tribal lands."


WEST PALM BEACH With
back-to-school shopping on the
horizon this month, Consumer
Credit Counseling Service of Palm
Beach County and the Treasure
Coast (CCCS) recommends that
consumers develop a manage-
able budget plan to cut costs
when preparing children and col-
lege students for a new school
year.
"Today's students often need
more sophisticated supplies than
their parents needed," said Jessi-
ca Cecere, president of CCCS.
"The demands of their academic
programs may require personal
computers, calculators and
expensive lab fees. Without care-
ful planning, families may be
forced to choose between their
child's educational needs- and
household bills. Back-to-school
sales, thrift stores and recycling

Consumer Credit Counseling
. Service, a non-profit organization
serving consumers in Palm Beach
'County and on the Treasure
Coast, offers free confidential
budget counseling, including an
analysis of a farhily's financial sit-
uation and a forum to ask ques-
tions and resolve debt issues. A
certified credit counselor can dis-
cuss income, debt, assets and lia-
bilities and help the family devel-

Summertime means heat, and
with it comes the deluge of
insects that thrive in warmer
weather. A fly swatter and insect
repellant may be the weapons of
choice for humans, but: animals
need something more to keep
the threat of insects at bay. ,
"Fleas, ticks and mosquitoes
are the three most threatening
insects to all pets in :Texas,
whether the pets are strictly
indoor, outdoor or both," says
Patty Hug, a registered veterinary
techniciari at the College of Vet-
erinary Medicine & Biomedical
Sciences at Texas A&M Universi-


ty.
Fire ants and bees also endan-'
ger pets, Ms. Hug says, but when'
it comes to deciphering which
insect transmits which disease'
and how it can be prevented, a
pet owner can get lost. A list of
summer pests:
Mosquitoes transmit heart-
worms. When a female mosqui-
to bites an animal, it injects lar-
vae that potentially develop into
worms
that live inside the heart.
Fleas cause tapeworms.
When a pet uses its teeth to
relieve the itch from, fleas, the
animal ingests the fleas. When
the fleas are digested, they cause
tapeworms that feed on the
- intestinal walls of the animal,
causing anemia. These long, flat
parasites exit through the feces,
looking like moving rice grains.
Fleas are not normally life-threat-.
ening, but they can be if left
untreated, especially with young
animals.
Ticks transmit Lyme dis-

ease. Ticks are common in heav-
ily wooded areas and can easily
hitch a ride on an animal's coat.
Ms. Hug says that most pets in
these areas are at risk of getting
deer ticks. These insects cause
Lyme disease, and the side
effects in pets are similar to those
in humans, Hug says.
Bees, wasps and fire ants
just plain hurt. Pets can be stung'
just like humans, and they have
similar reactions.
"A dog can have anything
from a very mild, localized reac-
,tion, like most people get, all the
%\\ay to an anaphylactic reaction-
it is relatively rare, but it's there,"
says Lori Atkins, also a registered
\eterinary technician at the Col-
lege of Veterinary Medicine &
Biomedical' Siences at Texas
A&M University.
Older or debilitated pets are
also at risk because they cannot
move quickly when insects pose
a threat.
"They lay down in an anthill,
then they start getting bit and
can't get away in ;time," Ms,
Atkins says..
To prevent insects from caus-
ing harm to an animal compan-
ion, Ms. Hug advises taking sev-
eral steps.
"The number one thing a pet
owner can do for a pet is to take
it to the veterinarian every year,"
says Ms. Hug, "and the second
best thing is to test canine pets
for heartworms."
Asking the veterinarian to

place the pet ori heartworm, flea
and tick preventatives is another
important step, Ms. Hug adds.
Several products are available,
such as. the tablet, topical treat-
ment or chewable beef cube for
heartworm prevention. For fleas,
treatment comes in the topical
and tablet form, and for ticks,
topical prevention is most com-
mon.

Foundation.2006 Gala
Sounds of the '60s will ente'Hain the audience at the,
171h annual Gala at Nora Mayo Hall. Funds raised
will go toward supporting the thousands ofpatients
that Winter Haven Hospital cares for.


.The Mid-Florida Medical Services
Foundation is pleased to announL-c that '6N--
era pop legends, The Swingin' Medallions
and The Tanvs will perform as the, beadiine
entertainment at the Foundation's 17th
annual Gala. schejuled'for Fridav. Nov. 17
at Nora Mayo Hall in Winter Haven. q.

The. annual fund-raising event has raised in
recent years 'hundreds of thousands of
dollars to support the Foundation's various
health care initiatives.

"The Gala gets better every year. The
Swingin' Medallions and The Tana are two
of those bands whose songs will bring back
a ton of great memories," said, Richard
Straughn, Foundation' Chairman. "At the
same time, it's -a chance to celebrate the
successes .'of the' Hospital and the
Foundation, and tio 01 the community our
plans for the, future- It's a. fun night t.o
bbsem the community-wide effort that
brings quality health cam to our region."

The Swingin'Medallions became famous in
1966 with the release of their multi-million-
record seller, "Double Shot of My Baby's


Love," %-,,hich remiins the signature. song of
the Proup today. Rock star- Bruce
S&ihgsteen once labeled the song "the
greatest fraternity bit song of dll time."

The SwIn2in' MedAwrW popularity today,
"according to one critic, "stems from. the
catchy, make-you-want-to-dance feeling
that radiates throughout the band's rhythm-
and-blues', beach-music sound."

The Tams gained fame in the '60s -Aith hits
such'as "What Kind of Fool and "Be
Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy." The band's
name is taken from the fact that all of the
band members wear Tam 9Shanter hats on
stage.

Larry Tucker, gala committee member and
Foundation Trustee, said that although
several organizations in east Polk and
Highlands counties already have made
sponsorship commitments to the Gala, a
number of additional opportunities remain.

'The Gala is east Polk County's biggest
fund-raising event," Tucker said. "And so

25 by '25: Building renewable energy resources


All it takes is one stop at the
fuel pump to realize that Ameri-
cans are confronting one of their
biggest challenges in decades.
Soaring energy prices are impact-
ing all sectors of our economy,
whether you are a farmer trying to
fuel up for.field work, a trucker
hauling goods across the country
or an office worker who com-
mutes to work every day.
That's why leaders like Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson are joining forces with
others across the country to
endorse a bold new initiative:
25x'25. The goal: America's
farms, ranches and forests will
provide 25% of America's energy
needs from renewable sources by
2025. A bi-partisah group of Sena--
tors and Representatives in Wash-
ington, D.C. recently introduced
25x'25 as a national goal for the
country and more and moral peo-'
ple are endorsing this vision every
day.
"We believe .the time has
come for concerned citizens to
work collectively and bring this
vision to life," explains Bronson,
"We are convinced that America's
farms, ranches and forests can
become suppliers for a new gen-
eration of fuels and energy feed-
stocks. At the same.time, we'll


contribute to a cleaner environ-
ment and enhance rural econom-
ic development."

Diverse sources
available
Although widespread public
awareness of the 25x'25 initiative,
is relatively recent, it's been gain-
ing momentum over the last two
years. In the fall of 2004, a group
of agricultural leaders joined
forces to discuss how they could
proactively address the growing
challenges, associated with energy,
prices. "We anticipated that this
was going to continue to be a
huge issue," said 25x'25 co-chair
J. Read Smith. "But at that time,
none of us would have predicted
the hurricanes in 2005, the supply
disruptions, and some of the dra-
matic price swings and economic
impacts we are seeing now." .
After extensive dialogue with a
wide range of stakeholders and
energy advocates this steering
committee became convinced
that agriculture and forestry can
play a key role in helping the
nation move toward energy inde-
pendence. "We looked at the
energy .potential from a wide
range of sources: wind, solar,
methane, ethanol, biodiesel,"
added Bill Richards, who also


serves as co-chair. *
Since the adoption of a resolu-
tion by the National Association
of State Departments of Agricul-
ture endorsing the 25x'25 goal a
year ago, Bronson has been one
of the nation's most ardent sup-
porters of the concept.
New technologies emerging
"The technologies that could
turn this vision to reality are rapid-
ly emerging and providing new,
more efficient solutions," added
Mr. Bronson. "In the past decade,
there have been great strides, in
biofuel technology and manufac-
turing facilities, substantially
improving the efficiency of this
fuel source. Florida will be the site
of great advances in the develop-
ment of fuel and energy alterna-
tives, which is why we are push-
ing our 'Farm to Fuel' initiative so
aggressively."
"Imagine the impact that
could be made if every farm,
ranch and forestry operation in
our vast nation were contributing
energy in one form or another,"
suggested Mr. Bronson. "And
imagine the economic impact
that could result. .Landowners
who produce crops, livestock or
forestry products, would have a
second crop to sell energy. Jobs
would be created in rural America'
through the processing of agricul-


tural products and themainte-
nance of equipment forproduc-
ing electric po~ er., These
increased domestic energy sup-'
plies would help reduceilhe price
Americans pay to drive heir cars
and cool their homes."

Momentum grows
The 25x'25 Work Griup has
dramatically expanded in scope
and size since its incepton band
momentum continues to build for,
making this a national goal and
create alliances in at least 20
states. As we went to press, the'
goal has been endorsed by Flori-
da Gov. Jeb Bush, along with the
governors of Idaho, Indiana,
Iowa, Kansas, Maryland Michi-
,gan, Minnesota, Montana,
Nebraska, New York, Pennsylva-
nia and Wisconsin; state legisla-:
tures in Colorado, Nebraska, and
Vermont; and over 200 olganiza-.
tions and businesses fromaround
the country.
"We hope other individuals
and organizations will join us in
crafting this new energy para-
digm," added Bronson. 'Strong
partnerships will drive the 25x'25
vision, and the work las just
begun on that front.';
