Council Meeting last Monday
night they will hold a Special
Meeting Tuesday, Sept. 19, 3
p.m. as a follow up to the pro-
posed five year contract they
received from the Sheriff's Office
late on Monday.
Council members Larry Sulli-
van and Kay Hutzelman both
voiced their concern that they
would need more time to read
Ihe late- lt ev-i.:1 contract before
making a decision.
Pending no further revisions,
the council is expected to make
a decision at the Sept. 19 meet-
ing regarding the merger.
Local resident Doug Wise
asked the following hypothetical
question: What would happen if
the city signs the five year con-
tract, phases out the current
police department (vehicles,
equipment, etc.), and as a possi-
bility Sheriff Judd is replaced
before the contract is up, and the
new incoming Sheriff decides he
doesn't want to continue to
honor the contract agreement
for whatever reason. What will
the city do and how will it re-
The response was the Sher-
ill's :, fice \\ would help the city get
their own police department re-
established. Yet. listed in the

SIn a graduation ceremony
held at Bartow High School on
July 31, AmeriCorps Polk Reads
graduated 19 members from
this volunteer service corpora-
tion. AmeriCorps Polk Reads
members served as reading
tutors to struggling kinder-
garten, first, second and third
graders at selected public school
sites around Polk County last
school year. They were trained
as reading tutors and attended a
monthly in-service to increase
their skills and knowledge to
better serve their students read-
ing needs. These members met
the hour requirement for the
year by serving 1,700 hours if
they were full time and 900
hours if part time. Their service
included tutoring students in
reading each day, and doing
community service related to lit-
eracy. By doing so they all
received a college tuition vouch-
er for their service time.
The 2005-06 AmeriCorps
members served a collective
23,405 hours this year impacting
countless students along the
way. AmeriCorps Polk Reads is
administered by the Polk Educa-
tion Foundation and funded
from a grant from Volunteer
Florida and funds from the
Foundation. Thank you goes to
the special guests who present-
ed at the ceremony: Hazel Sell-
ers School Board and PEF
Board member and David Lauer
- Assistant Superintendent of
Human Resources made the
certificate presentations. Mar-
garet Ann Wheeler, Community
Involvement Coordinator for
PCSB gave each graduate a vol-
unteer award pin.

Red Cross was ready for storm
When Tropical Storm Ernesto
looked to hit the northern Gulf
Coast as a hurricane on the
anniversary of Hurricane Katrina,
the American Red Cross called for
volunteers to get stationed in
When the storm instead
looked to hit Florida as a hurri-
cane, local volunteers stood ready
while the American Red Cross
had semitrailers and emergency
response vehicles stationed
around the state to roll as soon as
they were needed.
Even when Ernesto weakened
into a tropical storm and ended
up dumping just rain on parts of
central Florida, volunteers in sev-
eral American Red Cross chap-
ters, including the Polk County
Chapter, stood ready to roll out
and assess damage from flood-
ing, run phones to give informa-
tion, and distribute supplies, if
needed. According to Emergency
Services Director Linda Scialo, the
Polk County American Red Cross
called up 212 volunteers, and
more than 85 percent of them
were available for whatever help
Ms. Scialo said she and Emer-
gency Services Specialist Eric Car-
roll also got a great return on e-
mail notification sent out to
volunteers. They both thanked
volunteers for everything they did
and continue to do.
"It is a great feeling knowing
that if something were to happen
again we have (their) support,"
Mr. Carroll said. "We couldn't do
it without (them)."
The chapter was also able to
gather supplies from Sam's Club
in Lakeland, and carry them back
to the chapter in vehicles from
Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Winter
Haven. Enterprise vehicles also
stood ready to assist the chapter
with damage assessments, but
fortunately, damage was minimal
from the storm.
Likewise, at the Highlands
County American Red Cross Ser-
vice Center, called out 67 volun-
teers and more than 50 percent of
them responded. Volunteers
drove out in rental vehicles to
investigate flooding and possible
flooding in Venus, the SpringLake
district, Lorida, and othei low-
lying areas. Fortunately, flood
damage was minimal there, as
Volunteers did respond to a
call to open storm shelters in
Highlands County, and gained a
high level of respect from county
government and emergency
"They did an excellent job,"
said Art Harriman, service center
director. "They did what they
were asked, stayed until it was fin-
ished and then helped with the
Polk County damage assess-
ment crews even rolled out on Fri-
day, Sept. 1, to help the Highlands
County service center assess pos-
sible flood damage in trailer parks
and subdivisions. For now,
although there continues to be
flooding on Old State Road 8 in
Venus, with one house affected,
and some street and golf course
flooding in the SpringLake dis-
trict, east of Sebring, no houses
have been affected. Red Cross vol-
unteers continue to monitor the
SpringLake situation, since it
could turn into a health issue as
floodwaters compromise sewers.
As always, the American Red
Cross encourages people to go
through their disaster preparation
and make sure they have secured
their homes against wind and
debris damage, stocked supplies
for during and after the storm,
arranged evacuation or sheltering
plans, and are prepared to offer
assistance in their communities, if
called. More information is avail-
able online at www.redcross.org,
or through your local American
Red Cross office.

gency Services Director Linda

'Silence is death' in AIDS epidemic
TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
today released a report entitled,
"Silence is Death: The Crisis of
HIV/AIDS in Florida's Black Com-
munities." The report focuses on
white, black and Hispanic per-
sons living with HIV/AIDS (report-
ed cases). The report quantifies
racial/ethnic disparities and ranks
the top 20 counties in the state
accordingly. A set of recommen-
dations to combat HIV/AIDS is a
key part of the report.
"It is unacceptable that for 15
years in a row, HIV/AIDS has been
the leading cause of death among
black Floridians aged 25-44
years," said DOH Secretary M.
Rony Frangois, M.D., M.S.P.H.,
Ph.D. "It is time for us to mobilize
communities and all those who
have a stake in the epidemic to
find innovative ways to reduce the
associated morbidity and mortali-

Reduce barriers to HIV test-

having on black communities. -
"HIV/AIDS prevention and

mission is to draw what their vision
of transportation will be like in Polk
County in the year 2030. The Polk
TPO prepares the 2030 long range
transportation plan for the county
including roadways, sidewalks,
multi-use paths and mass transit.
Who can imagine what the year
2030 will be like? What kind of
technology will we have in 25
years? Will we still have fossil
fuels? Will cars be obsolete? Will
we go back to walking everywhere
or will everyone be riding mass
transit? Will we run out of land to
build new roads?
Polk County has an estimated
population of 528,000 which is
expected to increase to over
700,000 by the year 2030. That
means lots more traffic on
our already overcrowded roads.
Also more than one in five people
in America will be over the age of
65 in the year 2030; that means we
will need to have a mass transit sys-
tem that can take elderly people,
who may or may not be able to
drive, to their doctor's appoint-
ments, grocery shopping, libraries
and even to work.
