if the offer is too good to be true.
A motion was passed at Mon-

Grady Judd and request a more

Residents as well as city oft-
cials are concerned as to what
type of service will be provided by
the sheriff's office proposal for an
approximate cost of $437,491.
The council reassured resi-
dents in attendance they have not
yet made a decision about the
Polk County Sheriff's Department
taking over law enforcement with-
in the city limits.
If the PCSO contract is
approved, the Frostproof Police
Department wouldn't be the only
municipal service affected. The
Frostproof Fire Department
would go through several changes
during the conversion, the most
significant one being the FPFD
would loose their local dispatch.
Frostproof Firefigluer Doug
Wise;said it Awould be a great
injustice to the Frostproof resi-
dents if the city turned the dis-
patch service over to the County.

make the change, but the
response time would be greatly
impacted, he explained. He said
residents calling for emergency
service would be in line with the
county's dispatch calls.

Hope Hospice pleased to support Polk County
By Samira K. Beckwith,
and CEO Hope Hospice
Every year, thousands of Ameri-
cans with life-threatening illnesses
suffer needlessly, without access to
the special care and comfort that
could add real quality to their lives.
Many of those people reside in Polk,
Highlands and Hardee counties.
The State of Florida, through the
Agency for Health Care Administra-
tion, has recognized a need for addi-
tional hospice care in this area, and
they have given approval to Hope
Hospice to provide those services.
We are pleased and honored.
Hope Hospice, a not-for-profit
health care agency, has served south-
west Florida for 25 years. Currently
we are caring for more than 800 peo-
ple each day, in support of our mis-
sion is to provide exceptional care
and support to all people who are
touched by end-of-life issues.
Hope Hospice serves people suf-
fering from any type of illness, from
all walks of life, of all ages, from new-
borns to centenarians. However, we
treat the person, instead of the dis-
ease; we focus on the family in addi-
tion to the individual; and we
emphasize the quality of life rather
than its duration. To do this, it takes
a team of caring people. Each Hope
Hospice Care team includes physi-
cians, nurses, pharmacists, social
workers, personal care specialists,
specially trained volunteers, chap-
lains, homemakers and bereavement
counselors, as needed to care for the
unique needs of each person and
Care at the end of life requires
much more than pain medication.
Hope Hospice will offer therapies
that have been proven to give the
patient even more comfort and relief.
The art and music therapies we pro-
vide have become widely recognized
for their contributing role in health
care, as they can decrease anxiety
and offer greater relaxation. We also
offer moving touch therapy, also
known as massage therapy, and
Hope Hospice was chosen to partici-
pate in a major national study to
determine if the therapy reduces the
burden of symptoms of patients in

of life and reduces physical and emo-
tional symptom distress among
Letter to the Editor:
The Frostproof Baseball Field
(Henderson Field) is being painted,
repaired, and cleaned by volunteers.
New signs will be put in the out-
field, new roofs are being re-con-
structed and other repairs made. Its
expected to take a few more work
days to finish all of the work; howev-
er, the following people have
worked hard to put this field in the
best shape it has ever been: Ralph
Blount, Shellie Castle, Chris Castle,
Ginny Kinard, Chris Payne, Pete
Payne, Pat Spence, Tom Elyard,
Thomas Elyard, Andrew Mac-
chione, Glenn Cutts, Jeremy Jack-
son, Pinky Gra ley, Gary Gravley,
Reggie Gravley, Mason Gravley,
Austin Gravley, and Trent Gravley.
We would like to thank Bagwell
Lumber Co. for donating the paint
and Kelly Payne Tree Service for fur-
nishing the wood chips. Signs are
being sold so it won't cost the city
tax payers any money. The only cost
is for wood to repair bleachers and
dugouts and metal for roofs and
signs painted for the businesses that
have already purchased signs. They
include: Bagwell Lumber Co., Har-
vey's Minit Market, Frostproof Fam-
ily Restaurant, Keystone Reality, Ben

The volunteers have made good
progress, however, 10 more signs
are needed for completion.

Tallahassee Attorney General
Charlie Crist announced the arrest
of a Polk County man on multiple
charges of possession of child
pornography. Joseph Bass was
arrested last night after investiga-
tors conducting an investigation
through the internet located his
collection of pornographic videos
Bass, 61, had the pornographic
images on his computers, where
they were discovered by an internet
investigator with Crist's Child
Predator CyberCrime Unit. The
investigator was able to trace the
images back to Bass's previous Lee
County residence. Investigators
then tracked Bass to his new Polk
county residence and obtained a
full confession regarding the child
pornography. Bass was arrested by
officers with Crist's Child Predator
CyberCrime Unit and other law
"Child pornography repeats the
horrible sexual abuse of a child
every time an image is viewed or
distributed," said Crist. "We must
remain aggressive in pursuing
those who exploit our children in
such a heinous manner."
Law enforcement officers exe-
cuting a search warrant at Bass's
Bartow residence discovered more
than 50 images of child pornogra-
phy on his computers. Many of the
images portrayed sexual activity
with victims as young as infants
and toddlers. The computers were
seized and will undergo further
forensic analysis to unearth addi-
tional images or videos.
Authorities with the FBI Inno-
cent Images Task Force, the Polk
County Sheriff's Office and the Lee
County Sheriff's Office assisted
with the investigation and arrest.
Bass is currently being held at
the Polk County Jail. He is charged
with 10 counts of possession of
child pornography, a third-degree
If convicted on all charges, he
faces up to 50 years in prison.
The Child Predator CyberCrime
Unit's mission is to protect chil-
dren from computer-facilitated sex-
ual exploitation. The unit does this
by working cooperatively on a
statewide basis with law enforce-
ment agencies and prosecutors to
provide resources and expertise,
while preventing the spread of
these crimes through education
and community awareness. Bass's
arrest is the 25th made by officers
with the unit since its inception in
October 2005. The Child Predator
CyberCrime Unit is a member of
the Internet Crimes Against Chil-
dren Task Force (ICAC) of North
PCC'S Talent Search Program a success
Natalia Wagner of Davenport
is attending Rollins College on a
scholarship today, majoring in
International Relations, thanks to
Polk Community College's Edu-
cational Talent Search Program.
She wouldn't have learned about
the scholarship opportunities
without ETS' help. ETS is a feder-
ally funded TRIO program that
assists 6th through 12th graders
graduate from high school and
enroll in college. Natalia started
with Talent Search when she
attended Haines City High
School. Since joining the pro-
gram, she duel enrolled in PCC,
earned 45 college credits and
graduated from HCHS with high
HCHS is one of 10 Polk Coun-
ty schools that are targeted by
PCC's Talent Search. The primary
focus of the program is to help
low income and first generation
students from families without a
history of college graduates. "Tal-
ent Search has a great record of
helping our students," said Pedro
"Pete" Rodriquez, Director of
Educational Talent Search.
The ETS students high school
graduation rate has been very
high-over 90% have graduated
during the past four years and
about the same number have
enrolled in college, he said.
The program will continue
helping Polk County students for
another four years thanks to a
$250,261 annual federal educa-
tional grant, Congressman Adam
Putnam's office announced.
"Every American should havethe
opportunity to pursue the Ameri-
can dream through education
and training," Rep. Putnam said.
Rodriquez and a team of three
advisors: Rebecca Knowles, Mist-
ie Parson and Matina Wagner reg-
ularly visit the target schools and
help some 700 students, ensur-
ing that they are excelling aca-
demically and preparing for col-
lege. The ETS team provides
academic counseling, informa-
tion about college admission
financial aid, career decision
making and goal setting.
The program ratchets up when
the students enter the ninth and
tenth grade. They do a career
inventory and research three
careers that they find interesting.
Each ETS student narrows their
choices down to one career and
they shadow a professional in the

community with that career.
Then in eleventh grade, the stu-
dent does an in-depth college
search, culminating with them
choosing and applying to col-
leges. Along the way, the ETS
advisors work with the students
to achieve the object of being
accepted at one or more colleges.
"ETS helped me achieve my
goals!" declared Natalia Wagner,
who is majoring in International
Relations with a minor in Ger-
man. She hopes to be an intern in
German's House of Representa-
tives next year and her ultimate
goal is to work at the U.N.
Rodriquez said that Natalia
not only reached her short range
goals, but assisted others in the
program achieve their objectives.
"This young lady is very car-
ing. She goes out of her way to
kids," he explained.
Rodriquez said that it would
have been impossible to assist all
the students in the ETS program
without the aid of numerous peo-
ple, both in the program and out.
"I want to thank the college com-
munity for their overall support
of the Educational Talent Search
Program." he said.

WASHINGTON, DC The
U.S. Department of Homeland
Security's Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA)
reminds residents of hurricane-
prone areas to prepare even
though fewer storms are' now pre-
dicted for the 2006 season.
The National Oceanographic
and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) announced today that it
expects seven,to nine humt-anes
this year, a decrease from earlier
estimates. The hurricane season,
which began June 1, ends Novem-
ber 30. So far this year, NOAA says
there have been three named
storms, but no hurricanes.
"This is not a time to be com-
placent. It only takes one storm.
People still need to develop family
disaster plans and compile kits
with necessary supplies to last
three days," FEMA Director David
Paulison said. "They also should
stay informed about local weather
conditions and pay attention to
emergency information from local
and state officials."
FEMA recommends taking
these steps to prepare for hurri-

Department of Homeland Securi-
ty's Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA) is moving
forward to address concerns that
have been raised regarding the
levels of formaldehydehyde in travel
trailers in the Gulf Coast region.
The agency has specifically
asked for and received from the
Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA), an air monitoring and
sampling plan that is intended to
validate methods that can be
used to reduce the presence of
formaldehyde in travel trailers.
The sampling plan was reviewed
by an outside expert.
Formaldehyde is a strong-
smelling, but common industrial
chemical that is found in homes
and buildings everywhere. It is
used in glue, particleboard, fiber-
board as well as furniture made
with these pressed wood prod-
ucts. Formaldehyde also is found
in a variety of materials encoun-
tered in everyday life cigarettes
and cigarette smoke and personal
care products. Some people are
particularly sensitive to it, while
others may not notice it at all
once the odor begins to dissipate.
Currently, FEMA is making
the necessary preparations for
the testing -- arranging for the
trailers to be moved, preparing
the site; and setting up trailers for
use in on-site project manage-
ment, equipment and supply
storage and to recharge and
Air samples from unused trail-
ers will be collected and analyzed
with and without the heating,
ventilation and air condition sys-
tem operating. Temperature and
humidity will be moderated by
various degrees of open windows,
static vents and exhaust fans as
well manufacturer-installed air
conditioning units. The agency is
using unused trailers because
that will allow testing of units
that have not been affected by
human activity, including the
presence of materials containing
formaldehyde that were brought
into the trailers by occupants.
Samples will be taken at differ-
ent times of the day; ambient out-
door samples also will be taken
concurrent with the collection of
the samples in the trailers. Ambi-
ent temperature and relative
humidity data will be collected as
well for each ambient sample.
Meanwhile, FEMA will soon
begin distribution of a brochure
to trailer occupants across the
Gulf Coast explaining how those
persons sensitive to formalde-
hyde may be affected by its pres-
ence and preliminary actions
they can take to reduce their
exposure in the trailers. The
advice includes taking steps to:
Increase ventilation. Open
the windows and door of the
trailer and use fans to force stale
air out and bring fresh air in.
Keep indoor temperatures
cool. Heat does cause formalde-
hyde to increase the rate at which
it releases fumes, so, after the
trailer is well ventilated, keep
temperatures cooler with air con-
Lower the humidity. Like
heat, humidity causes formalde-"
hyde to release fumes, so keep
the relative humidity at about 40
to 50 percent in the trailer.
Do not smoke inside. Tobac-
co smoking releases formalde-
hyde and other toxic chemicals.

price some 600 different pre-
scription options. A few clicks at
the website makes it easy for con-
sumers to determine which phar-
macies close to their homes offer
the best prices on the medica-
tions they need..
Since it was launched in June
2005, the website has attracted
an average of more than 4,100
visitors per week for a total of
2154,203 internet users as of
"We are pleased to offer even
more help to Floridians to
