Holiday safety tips
Halloween is a holiday that, at
its best, is carefree, fun and
appeals to the child in all off us.
Frostproof's annual Trick or Treat
night is scheduled this year on
Saturday, Oct. 28 from 7 p.m. to 9
p.m. The Frostproof Police
Department asks you to remem-
ber these safety precautions
before you light the Jack
O'Lanterns and send your little
goblins, witches and princesses
trick-or-treating:
Allow children to trick or
treat only at the homes of friends,
relatives or neighbors you know
personally.
An adult should accompany
children under 12. Older children
should have an ironclad curfew.
Inspect costumes for haz-
ards: make sure masks or cos-
tumes do not obstruct vision, gar-
ments should be short enough to
prevent tripping, avoid hard plas-
tic or wooden props such as
swords, add reflective tape to the
costume and make sure it is fire-
resistant.
Stay on sidewalks and cross
only at corners. Caution children
Sto watch for traffic and don't run.
SDon't cross the street ,from
: between parked'cars. -' -: :
S .. Carry a,.flashig.h, ChemiqFiI
light sticks are fun for kids and
provide additional warning to
motorists.
Give and accept only
wrapped or packaged candy and
inspect all treats before allowing
children to eat them. Keep home-
made food only if you know who
prepared it and cut open all fruit
to check for foreign objects.
Notify police of any suspi-
cious treats; call 911 if injury is
involved. A cell phone is a good.
safety item for groups of trick-or-
treaters.
Homeowners should make
sure their yard and porch are safe
for youngsters.

Petition may help low income Floridians


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist has filed a
petition to intervene with the Pub-
lic Service Commission in support
of a previously filed petition by Pub-
lic Counsel Harold McLean and
AARP. Their petition asked the
commission to order Florida phone
companies to automatically enroll
eligible low-income residents in the
Lifeline telephone service.
The Lifeline program provides
low-priced telephone services
designed to ensure that basic tele-
phone service remain affordable to
all residents of Florida. The services
are intended to provide consumers


who otherwise might not be able
to afford telephone service with
life-saving communications. The
petition filed by the Public Counsel
and AARP, now joined by the Attor-
ney General, noted that although
Florida has approximately 1 million
eligible households, fewer than 13
percent of qualifying Florida resi-
dents participate in the program.
"Every Floridian should have
the ability to call for help in times of
need," said Mr. Crist. "They should-
n't have to jump through hoops
and overcome obstacles to get
what they truly deserve fair rates."
Lifeline Assistance can save eli-


gible consumers as much as $160
per year on telephone services. The
program is funded by the Universal
Service Fund, a fee that appears on
monthly telephone bills nation-
wide and is distributed to all 50
states. Because of Florida's low par-
ticipation in the program, Floridi-
ans are actually paying more to the
fund than is returned to those state
residents who are signed up for the
program. In 2004, Floridians con-
tributed more than $380 million,
but the state only received $137
million in return.
Under the proposal by Mr.
McLean, AARP and Mr. Crist, tele-


phone companies would be
required to work with the Depart-
ment of Children and Families to
enroll all Floridians who would
qualify for the assistance. Exam-
ples of those who qualify include
Floridians who are on food stamps
or who request federal public
housing assistance. More informa-
tion on eligibility is available at:
http//www.floridapsc.com/utilities/t
elecomm/lifeline/engbrochure.aspx.

Texas ranch to be auctioned


Lakeland, FL: Higgenbotham
Auctioneers announced that they

west of Mobeetie, which is about
75 miles north and east of Amarillo.
Concerning the Mobeetie prop-
erty, Ben Hill Griffin, III, the Compa-
ny's CEO and Chairman of the
Board, stated "the Texas ranch has
been a highly productive asset of
Ben Hill Griffin, Inc.'s Ranch Divi-
sion and has provided not only
excellent grazing but farming and
hunting as well. However, due to a
strategic decision requiring more
focus on the Florida operations, a
decision was made to sell the
Texas holdings".


The property will be offered in
11 parcels ranging from 160 to 320
acres and will be sold at absolute
auction, meaning that it will sell to
the last and highest bidder, regard-
less of price.

tion Manager for Lakeland, Fla.
based Higgenbotham Auctioneers
"We're certainly excited to offer
such a unique property at absolute
auction. This large tract is very
diverse and offers excellent oppor-
tunities ranging from agricultural
operations to recreational activi-
ties, including hunting. This is truly
a one-of-a-kind opportunity to own
all or part of such a high quality
piece ofTexas ranchland".
The property is fenced and
cross-fenced and comes complete
with overhead irrigation equip-
ment, several high output irrigation
wells and a recently renovated and
fully furnished ranch home.
The auction will be held on site.


Potential bidders are encouraged
to contact Higgenbotham Auction-
eers to receive a sales brochure
and due diligence package.

am Auctioneers International uti-
lizes the auction method of mar-
keting to sell real estate throughout
the United States and the world.
Higgenbotham's success is attrib-
uted to the company's stellar track
record in marketing unique prop-
erties and the firm enjoys continu-
ing relationships with Fortune 500
clients such as Alcoa, Wal-Mart,
and Albertson's Supermarkets, as
well as many other publicly traded

ing begins at 5 p.m. in the George

by Putnam and U.S. Senator Bill


Nelson, D-Florida.
The Victory Against Hunger
program awards grant money to
anti-hunger organizations, food
banks, schools, state agencies
and nutrition and health groups.
A panel of experts choose
winners based on their success
in achieving the goal expressed
by this year's theme, "Fighting
Hunger through Developing
and/or Implementing Local and
State School Meals Wellness Poli-
cies." According to the Congres-
sional Hunger Center's Web site,
http://www.hungercenter.org/ch
c/news20.htm, the theme was


chosen because the organization
believes that the implementation
of wellness' plans for children's
school meals programs that
incorporate nutrition education,
physical activity and improve the
quality of foods served are the
best way to educate children to
pursue healthy eating habits and
a healthy diet.
Documents sent to the school
district notifying them of the
award read as follows:
"The Polk County School Dis-
trict (PCSD) has been successful
in developing a comprehensive
wellness policy for students that


monitors food preparation, food
choices, and physical activity. In
order to meet USDA nutritional
standards, PCSD has.moved to
eliminate all deep fat-fried foods
from its menus in elementary
and secondary schools and
replace them with fresh fruits,
vegetables and self-service salad
bars. In addition to regular
school-day physical education
classes, PCSD has also estab-
lished Supervised Preferred
Activity time that promotes
physical activity outside of PE
classes, and encourages stu-
dents and teachers to take


advantage of these opportunities
to increase movement and fit-
ness awareness."
"To maintain support of the
new wellness policies, the PCSD
Food Service department has
launched a Web site, www.polk-
fl.net/foodservice, that address-
es up-to-date nutrition topics
and provides information and
recipes to parents. Through
these efforts to uphold nutrition-
al integrity and team-oriented
service, the Polk County School
Food Service Department con-
tinues to achieve the highest
level of nutritional standards."
