Collegiate High School opens


WINTER HAVEN High
school classes were held on
Polk Community College's Win-
ter Haven campus for the first
time on Aug. 7 with the launch
of the Chain of Lakes Collegiate
High School.
Some 65 junior and senior
high school 'students will be
attending both high school and
college classes on PCC's Winter
Haven campus. (PCC's academ-
ic year began Aug. 21.)
CHS represents the next level
in PCC's dual enrollment,
which allows students to take
college-level courses while
completing their high school
curriculum program.
The goal of some CHS stu-
dents will be to earn an Associ-
ate in Arts degree (transferable
to a state university) while oth-


ers will be pursuing an Associ-
ate in Science degree in various
technology and health care
fields.
Collegiate High School has
been operating for the past four
years on the Lakeland campus.
The success stories are numer-
ous. CHS, Lakeland, was recog-
nized by the state this past year
as one of the top ten schools in
the division for advancing stu-
dent learning and services
through technology. PCC's Col-
legiate High School 11th
graders scored the second high-
est marks among Polk County
Schools on the FCAT and much
higher that the state average.
CHS, Lakeland students
received a total of over $955,000
in scholarship monies.
Criminal Justice classes


available
There's one difference
between Lakeland CHS and
Chain of Lakes CHS.
At the Winter Haven cam-
pus, students will be able to
take courses in Criminal Justice.
A retired Tampa Policeman,
Doug Bingle, will be one of the
CHS teachers. The normal age
requirements for these criminal
justice courses have been
waived.
"Sheriff Grady Judd has a
strong commitment to provid-
ing internships and future
employment to our students,"
said Bridget Fetter, new Director
of the Chain of Lakes CHS.

Teens and Cars a dose of reality


Take Charge America recom-
mends running the numbers
before getting behind the wheel.
Phoenix, Ariz.- Sweet 16 sig-
nals "vroom, vroom" for many
youngsters, yet the road to free-
dom comes with a lot of financial
responsibility. Just how much
may surprise teens and parents
alike.
Mike Sullivan, director of edu-
cation for Take Charge America, a
national nonprofit credit counsel-
ing agency, says the cost of a car is
only part of the picture.
"Additional insurance premi-,
ums for a young driver can put a
financial strain on parents who
are living paycheck-to-paycheck,"
he said. "Premiums for another
vehicle can be very high, especial-
ly when the primary driver is a
new, young driver. Even if the teen
driver doesn't have his or her own
vehicle, there is still the added
cost of gas and maintenance on
the family vehicle from the addi-
tional use."
According to the 2005 Autoex-
tra.com "Kids' First Car Survey,"
76 percent of students aged 16 to
22 have their own cars. About 54
percent of those students paid
$10,000 or less for their vehicle.
Sullivan says some teens may
need help putting that cost into
perspective.
"Many students work mini-
mum wage jobs. It would take
more than 1,900 hours of work -
an entire year at a full-time job -
just to purchase a $10,000 car on
that wage," he said.
Sullivan describes-five "must-

Protect your trees from future storm damage


By Mickie Anderson
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE University of
Florida researchers have released a
booklet that's full of practical
advice about how to protect your
trees from storm damage and
what to do if they're damaged
despite your best efforts.
"We wanted to help homeown-
ers with their trees. We've learned
a lot about trees in our studies of
the last 10 hurricanes and hope
that our tips will help make urban
trees more healthy and wind resist-
ant," said Mary Duryea, associate
dean for research at UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences.
The booklet answers every-
thing from when and how to
prune, to choosing the sturdiest
trees for your part of the state to
knowing when a damaged tree
needs expert help.
The 12-page, color booklet -
called "Assessing damage and
restoring trees after a hurricane"-
is available at any of the state's 67
county extension offices, Florida


Division of Forestry offices or can
be downloaded at the Florida
Cooperative Extension Service's
Web site:
http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/EP291.
The publication begins with the
worst-case scenario of a hurri-
cane's aftermath and how to safely
remove felled trees, then moves on
to how to distinguish storm-dam-
aged trees that should be removed
from those that have a chance for
survival. It gives detailed informa-
tion on pruning, specialized advice
on pine trees and palms, and the
final section is on prevention: how
to choose the right trees for your
yard, how many to plant and
where to plant them.
UF/IFAS researchers have been
tracking tree damage since Hurri-
cane Andrew in 1992 and much of
the advice in the booklet stems
from that work.
Duryea, an urban forestry
expert, says laurel oaks are among
the worst at withstanding hurri-
cane-force winds.
"I've measured four hurricanes
in the Pensacola area," she said,


"and in every one of them, laurel
oaks have wreaked havoc."
Laurel oaks that are more than
50 years old are most likely to fall,
she said. Pecan trees and sand
pines don't hold up well in high
winds, either.
A Spanish-language version of
the booklet is expected to be
released Sept. 15.
A $500,000 grant from the Flori-
da Division of Forestry and U.S.D.A.
Forest Service's southern region
paid for the booklets, the first com-
ponent of an Urban Forest Recov-
ery Program. Fourteen more publi-
cations will be made available to
the public via the Internet.
Ed Gilman, a UF urban horticul-
ture professor, said that while the
booklet is chock-full of valuable
information, he hopes the section
on prevention will hit home.
"I think, in a sense, the preven-
tion or reduction of problems
through proper tree care espe-
cially pruning is the take home,
long-term message," he said.
"Let's try to reduce the damage
next time."


AP/UF/IFAS/Marisol Amador
UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Associate Dean for Research Mary Duryea
and Ed Gilman, a UF urban horticulture professor, look over their recently published booklet
that gives tips on how to prevent storm damage to urban trees. The booklet is free and avail-
able on the Internet or at any county extension office.

Recreation planned in the Kissimmee River Basin


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
The Kissimmee River Recre-
ational Use Advisory Committee
met Saturday, August 5 at the
Basinger Community Center with
representatives of the diverse
groups attending. Hunting, fish-
ing, hiking, horseback riding and
other outdoor recreation takes
place in the area of the Kissim-
mee River and its contributing
areas throughout the year.
Updates of South Florida
Water Management District proj-
ects were given by Jeff McLemore
of the land management, division
of SFWMD and Fred Davis, Direc-
tor of the land stewardship divi-
sion.
Work continues on the river
restoration. In Reach 4 Phase I,
backfilling and weir removal
began in June and will continue
for 18 months. Backfilling from
the south end of phase I (Pool C)
to the CSX railroad bridge in Pool
D is scheduled for completion by
2012.
Turbidity (cloudy water) has
been a problem south of the
backfill area, but the contractor is
modifying his technique to lessen
this. This is a Corps of Engineers
project.
Modifications to structure S-
65D to give a larger flow will be
complete by December 2006.
Modifications to the Istokpoga
Canal and boat ramp will be
under construction this fall.
Glades Electric is relocating
the power lines at Micco Bluff in
Basinger at the old school house
site. Prescribed burns continue.
Slash pines were planted at
Hickory Hammock and 4 E's Fish
Camp.
Floodplain restoration of 1,200
acres is underway at Packinghamn
and Buttermilk Slough. This site is
closed to the public during con-
struction.
The South American Leaf Bee-
tle has been released on SFWMD
properties to control Tropical
Soda Apple. The beetle does not
feed on vegetable crops or native
plants.
A three-mile long entrance
road to the equestrian area camp-
ground at Hickory Hammock will
take six months to build and con-
struction will start after Oct. 1, the
coming fiscal year. The barn roof
there has been repaired.
In St. Lucie County, two large
parcels of abandoned citrus will
be opened for small game hunts.
The Allapatah Flats property will
be open for hunting, including a


INI/South Florida Water Management District
The Kissimmee River area is used for hunting, fishing, hiking and equestrian activities
throughout the year. Restoration of the river to its natural, winding course will increase pub-
lic use.


dove hunt. Contact the Florida
Game and Freshwater Fish Con-
servation Commission (FWC) for
details.
There will be a grand opening
of Micco Landing on Saturday,
Sept. 16, with a-ribbon cutting
ceremony and buggy tours of the
property.
FWC reported that the hog
harvest in Pool A is down because
hurricane damage limited access
to the area. Deer harvest is the
same. FWC continues to work
with SFWMD on local projects.
The Mother's day fire in
Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State
Park is out. It was started by light-
ning and burned 650 acres. There
will be buggy tours this fall and
winter.
The Florida Trail Association is
looking forward to being able to
create a trail on the east side of
Chandler's Slough.
The next meeting of the com-
mittee is scheduled for Nov. 4.
