Disposal rates questioned


Mobile Home
residents question
disposal rates

According to Polk County's
Solid Waste Division, phone calls
and inquiries from mobile home
park residents are on the rise
because of recent rate hikes for
garbage collection and disposal
services. The County does not
dictate which waste hauler these


commercial customers, includ-
ing mobile home parks, use. In
fact, mobile home parks are
specifically not covered by the
County's mandatory residential
collection ordinance. The ordi-
nance also excludes apartments
(over 10 units) and condomini-
ums.
Florida Refuse is the contrac-
tor that Polk County selected to
provide curbside waste collec-
tion for other homes in the unin-
corporated areas of the County.


Residents in those areas, as the
County's customers, are billed
$174.50 annually for collection
and disposal.
Mobile home park owners
and other commercial rental
park owners are free to negotiate
rates and service for garbage col-
lection with any of the County's
15 licensed commercial haulers.
The negotiated type of service
can vary from curbside collection
to dumpsters, and may also vary
in how billing arnd collections are

handled some are added to
monthly rents while others may
be charged annual fees. Addition-
ally, the rates can also include
costs and/or profit for the park
owner.
The County's current fee of
$174.50 per household (in unin-
corporated Polk) is a blended
rate established for a large con-
tract servicing 137,000 homes.
This fee is collected once annual-
ly as an assessment on property
tax bills, a method that saves an


estimated $2 million in adminis-
trative and mailing costs for the
county (taxpayer dollars), and
saves residents an additional
$600,000 in postage since they
don't have to mail in payments.
Though the County utilizes a
blended rate, haulers' costs are
actually different for each collec-
tion zone based on the number
of homes, the distance between
homes, and the distance from the

Red Cross seeks


sponsors and


motorcyclist


Polk and Highlands Counties,
FL The American Red Cross
Polk County Chapter and High-
lands County Service Center
have begun gathering riders and
sponsors for this year's fall
motorcycle poker run.
The Fun Bike Center Ride for
the Red to benefit the American
Red Cross of Polk County will
mount up at 10 a.m. Saturday,
Nov. 18, in two locations with
two motorcycle packs. One pack
will leave from the Circle in
Sebring. Another will leave from
Central Park in Winter Haven,
the site of the original ride. Riders
will have their choices of eight
stops lour in Highlands County
and four itrPolk Count, to end
at the Winter Haven Bikefest at 5
p.m. For those who haven't pre-
registered, registration begins at
8:30 a.m. at the two locations.
Linda Scialo, Emergency Ser-
vices Director for the Polk Coun-
ty Chapter, organized the original
Ride for the Red and was thrilled
to have Fun Bike Center agree, to
be title sponsor for this year's


event. Not only was Fun Bike
Center in Lakeland an original
stop and sponsor from the inau-
gural Ride for the Red in Polk
County, Scialo and several mem-
bers of her family purchased
their motorcycles from Fun Bike
Center and met many of their rid-
ing friends two years ago
through rides sponsored by Fun
Bike Center.
Highlands County Service
Center Director Art Harriman
first learned of the ride last fall,
he and Scialo immediately
began discussing plans for a dual
event, giving avid motorcyclists
in Highlands County who
showed tremendous support for
the American Red Cross during
the last t\vo years a chance to
have fun in a family-oriented
event. Harriman looks forward
to having this ride on a regular
basis every year, and is so excit-
ed about the ride, he's joked
about getting a motorcycle and
training to do the ride himself.

PCC celebrates



Fallfest Oct. 21


Fallfest. The word conjures
up a cool autumn day on Polk
Community College's Winter
Haven campus filled with happy
families participating in a variety
of activities. Thou-sands and
thousands of area residents trek
to the campus each October to
enjoy the event. This year PCC's
Fallfest, which will be held Satur-
day, Oct. 21 from 9 am to 4 pm,
will celebrate its 20th anniver-
sary.
"Who would have dreamt
that this event would have
grown to this size?" asked Tom
Dowling, Chair of the Fallfest
Committee. "I remember the
firstyear there were 30 or so craft
booths setup around the center
of the campus and the people


attending the fund raiser consist-
ed mostly of faculty and staff
from PCC."
During the two decades the
family event has grown and
expanded adding new exhibits
here or there. This year Fallfest
will feature: Hundreds of Home-
made Crafts, a Kids Zone, music
by PCC groups and area profes-
sional entertainers, a Haunted
House, La Sertoma's Pumpkin
Patch, Police and EMS exhibits
and all kinds of food and snacks.
"Today, we have over 160
crafts booths fanning out in all
directions on our Winter Haven
campus. As Fallfest has grown so
has our attendance," Dowling

Cooper receives recognition


Bartow, Fla. Kenney Coop-
er, support manager for Polk's
Roadway Maintenance Divi-
sion, was recently named
national evaluator of the year at
the. 64th annual Employee
Involvement Association (EIA)
Conference held in Indian
Wells, CA.
SCooper's involvement with
Polk County Government's
SHINE (Suggestions Help
Increase and Nurture Excel-
lence) Employee Suggestion
Program made him an ideal
nominee for the EIA Evaluator
of the Year award. The award
recognizes those who make
the most impact to employee
involvement programs.
On a local level, Cooper


helps generate ideas from his
co-workers that ultimately
boost working conditions,
enhance safety, improve cus-
tomer quality service and save
money. As an evaluator, Coop-
er works with his co-workers to
determine an idea's value and
feasibility making his own
suggestions for improvement
for ultimate effectiveness.
"Kenney is top flight and
extraordinarily deserving of this
honor," said Linda McDonnell,
Polk County's organization and
employee development direc-
tor. "This award is about excel-
lence and attitude, and Kenney
represents both as he's
embraced his role as an evalua-
tor, while still performing his


regular assigned duties."
While Cooper acts as an
evaluator and also serves as
support manager, he does not
view his role .as additional
workload. He considers it an
honor and challenge to assist
coworkers as they work to
improve roadway mainte-
nance for Polk County's resi-
dents.
National finalists for the EIA
award participated in an inter-
view with a committee of
judges during which they dis-
cussed their evaluation process
flow.
The winner was announced
at the awards banquet and was
presented with an etched glass
award to be proudly displayed.

landfill. For a small commercial
account, like mobile home parks,
the' hauler typically develops a
quote taking all these same fac-
tors into consideration. It is usual-
ly the case that smaller mobile
home parks may pay more than
larger ones. It is also quite possi-
ble that a mobile home park near
the landfill may pay less than one
in a remote area of the County.
Regardless of the fee formula
used by the chosen hauler, it is
important to remember that each
mobile home park owner is free
to negotiate the best deal for the
type of service they have prom-
ised their residents.

said. "During the last couple of
years some 12,000 people turned
out for this family festival. "We've
been so successful that one of our
major challenges has been to make
sure everyone has a place to park."
To handle all the tremendous atten-
dance, grassy areas on campus
have been turned into temporary
parking lots.
"When you talk to people about
Fallfest they each have their favorite
area," said "For me and many oth-
ers Fallfest wouldn't be Fallfest with-
out the hundreds of handmade
crafts on display. The craft show is
the backbone of Fallfest."
Fundraiser: Fallfest is a fund rais-
er with proceeds going to various
student organizations and to the
PCC Foundation. The PCC Founda-
tion financially supports PCC's edu-
cational mission in many ways
including establishing scholarships
and purchasing equipment. The
.fees from the craft booths and other
sales go to the PCC Foundation.
Kids Zone: One area of the cam-
pus will be transformed into the
Kids Zone complete with LaSer-
toma's Pumpkin Patch. The Kids
Zone also features magic shows
and balloon art by Luis Campan-
erfa hands-on activities and face
painting. A big hit every year is the
Haunted House. Once again, the
Physical Therapist Assistant stu-
dents will be converting their class-
room into a spooky place full of
ghosts and goblins.
Food: Tables will be setup in the
center of the Winter Haven cam-
pus. There PCC's various athletic
teams will sell hot dogs, hamburg-
ers, and soft drinks. There will also
be popcorn, cotton candy and
other snacks sold by various stu-
dent organizations.
Music: Fallfest visitors can sit
under the oaks and listen to PCC's
many talented musical groups: The
PCC Concert Choir, The PCC Jazz
Band, Over 55 Show Band, The


Haven pack opening ceremony
will include the U.S. Marine Corps
Honor Guard and the national
anthem sung in two-part harmony
by Polk County American Red
Cross staff members Phil Attinger
and Eric Carroll.
All proceeds from the event will
go to support American Red Cross
disaster services and health and
safety programs in Highlands and
Polk counties. Scialo said last year's
riders have been calling to pre-reg-
ister, stating they had so much fun
last year that they' cant wait tO run
in thisyear's ride. ; ;::

Red Cross disaster assistance is


the County's licensed haulers or
the opportunity for any mobile
home park to participate in the
County's contract. However, to
date, there has been very little
interest in the latter. This may be
because most mobile home park
owners negotiate lower annual
fees based on the assumption that
some units will be occupied only
seasonally during the winter
months:

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog."
Most citizens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe
their public officials at work, or to determine how well public insti-
tutions are carrying out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs"
than "watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog"
role as humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a
courteous tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Grant funds school drug tests


Washington, D.C. The-U.S.
Department of Education and the
White House Office of National
Drug Control Policy announced
the release of $8.6 million in Fed-
eral grants for schools to imple-
ment random student drug test-
ing programs. Student drug
testing is an important part of the
President's drug strategy, placing
emphasis on treatment, commu-
nity action, and prevention in an
effort to keep youth away from
drugs and their damaging effects.
The student drug testing grants
will extend the benefits of early'
intervention that have proven
beneficial in government, mili-
tary, education, transportation,
and private sector workplaces.

"I believe that a comprehen--
sive drug program that includes/
random drug testing in our:
schools can be an effective pre-
vention measure for steering stu-
dents away from substance
abuse and focus on learning and
reaching their full academic
potential," said U.S. Secretary of
Education Margaret' Spellings.
"As we continue to work as
teammates at the federal, state
and local level to create school
environments that are more con-
ducive to learning, I will continue
to stress the importance of using
these types of interventions as
deterrents' to drdg use by our
nation's youth."


"Youth drug use has declined
19 percent, with 700,000 fewer
students using drugs now than in
2001. By implementing testing,
we effectively give students a
credible way to resist peer pres-
sure," said the Director of Nation-
al Drug Control Policy, John P.
Walters. "In addition to its strong
deterrent effects, testing also
helps to give parents and educa-
tors a powerful tool to identify
young people in trouble, and
help them before they are too far
down the path of addiction. More
and more schools across the
Nation are using this safe and
effective prevention tool."
Nearly 400 public schools
nationwide have implemented
random student drug testing pro-
grams with the help of Federal
resources. Federal monies have
increased more than 400 percent
between 2003 and 2006, and
President Bush has asked Con-
gress to .increase grant money
available to schools and school.
districts by 45 percent from 2006,
to 15 million dollars in 2007.
The U.S. Department of Edu-
cation will award $8.6 million in
total random student drug-test-
ing grants, with $1.7- million
going to new awardees and $6.9
million for continuation grants.
New awards will go to 11 school
districts with 52 schools through-
out the country and 55 districts
with 310 schools will 'receive


continuation grants to maintain
their programs. Each grant aver-
ages approximately $125,000.
The competitive grant program
provides local educational sys-
tems with funds for up to four
years to implement random stu-
dent drug testing programs in at
least two high schools and par-
ticipate in a national evaluation
of the impact of random student
drug testing on high school stu-
dents' reported substance use.
In order to qualify for a grant,
applicants agree that the random
testing pool will be limited to stu-
dents in grades nine through
twelve, and within that group of
students, one or both of the fol-
lowing: all students who partici-
pate in the school's athletic pro-
gram, and/or all who are
engaged in competitive extra-
curricular school-sponsored
activities.
Random student-drug testing
has a proven record of success.
In Hunterdon, New Jersey, Cen-
tral High School saw a decrease
in drug use in 20 out of 28 cate-
gories after implementing a ran-
dom testing program for its stu-
dents. A study by Ball State
University in Indiana found, that
without testing, 85 percent of
Indiana principals reported an
increase in drug use and 518 stu-
dents were suspended or
expelled for drug or alcohol relat-
ed incidents; with random test-


ing, that figure dropped to 352.
Before testing began at George
Jenkins High School in Polk
County, Florida, 19.5 percent of
students participating in
extracurriculars said they had
used marijuana in the past 30
days. Following implementation
of drug testing, the rate dropped,
to 11.8 percent. Employers fol-
lowing Federal drug testing mod-
els have seen a 67 percent drop
in positive drug tests.
The purpose of random stu-
dent drug testing is to help those
in trouble by preventing drug use
and helping drug-using students
become drug-free in a confiden-
tial manner.'The results of a posi-
tive drug test should be used to
intervene .with not-yet-depend-
ent students and get drug-
dependent students into effective
treatment. After assessing the
extent of the problem, parents
and administrators should rec-
ommend appropriate interven-
tions, such as education on the
negative effects of drugs, coun-
seling, or if necessary, drug treat-
ment.
