Relay For Life?
Relay For Life is the Ameri-
can Cancer Society's signature
activity. It is a unique event that
offers communities an opportu-
nity to participate in the fight
against cancer. Relays are 18 to
24 hours in length and are
overnight. Teams of 10 to 15
people camp out at a local high
school, college, park, or fair-
ground and take turns walking,
jogging, or running around a
track or path. Each team is
asked to have a representative
on the track at all times during
Since Relay For Life is a com-
munity gathering rather than an
athletic event, anyone and
everyone can participate. Busi-
nesses, clubs, families, friends,
hospitals, churches, schools,
and service organizations form
teams. These teams share a
common purpose -- their sup-
port of the American Cancer
Why Relay For Life?
The power of Relay allows a
community to grieve for those
lost to cancer and to celebrate
those who have survived. For a
newly diagnosed patient, Relay
For Life offers an opportunity to
meet others who have fought
this battle and won. For the can-
cer patient in treatment, Relay
offers the opportunity to share
experiences with others. For the
long-term survivor, Relay brings
recognition that the community
cares about their struggle and
closure to a trying time in life.
Another group finding hope
in Relay For Life is caregivers.
These individuals give their
time, love, and support to
friends, family, and neighbors
who face cancer. At Relay,
everyone understands the chal-
lenges and joys of being a care-
giver. There is peace of mind in
knowing that together we can
face the challenges ahead.

Military Life in Kunsan
By Dona Fair
KUNSAN AIR BASE, South
Korea Normally one would
think that being surrounded by
rice paddies, in a small fishing
village on the Yellow sea, would
be calm and serene. But for the
men and women stationed here,
it's not uncommon to be awak-
ened at 5 a.m. from a deep sleep
by a thunderous loudspeaker
voice announcing an invasion,
resulting in the need to jump out
of bed, grab chemical warfare
gear and rush to work.
Just 100 miles from the demil-
itarized zone that separates dem-
ocratic South Korea from the
communist North, training like
this is commonplace for the
daughter of a Lake Wales resi-
Air Force Staff Sgt. Bonny F.
Alexander, daughter of Lorene
Thomas of Carriage Drive, Lake
Wales, is a budget analyst with
the 8th Comptroller Squadron,
serving a year-long assignment
at this remote base.
"I am a budget analyst for the
Operations and Maintenance
Groups here. I make sure that
each group appropriately exe-
cutes their provided budgets,"
said Alexander, who graduated
in 1991 from Newark High
School, Ohio, and received a
bachelor's degree in 2004 from
Western New England College,
At Kunsan, the men and
women in the 8th Fighter Wing
also know as the "Wolf Pack,"
are kept busy conducting air-to-
ground and air-to-air missions in
support of the F-16 aircraft. As a
warrior base, they are at the front
lines to deliver lethal airpower
when and wherever directed.
Recent events in North Korea
have reinforced the need for the
airmen to always be alert and
ready for action.
"The situation in North Korea
has caused us to provide
increased support to the Opera-
tions and Maintenance groups
due to the increase in vigilance
and operation tempo," she said.
Life in Korea is often a dra-
matic contrast for Americans sta-
tioned here. "I see a nation that is
flourishing from the support we
provide here. The Korean nation-
als I work with show a sincere
appreciation for our presence
and give us a great sense of wel-
come," explained Alexander.
Missing family birthdays,
anniversaries and holidays can
make it hard to stay focused on
readiness. "I was able to spend
Christmas with my family during
my mid-tour leave. However, it is
important to make friends here,
both in and out of the organiza-
tion, because we are all experi-
encing the same separation from
our family and friends back in
Although the hours are long,
the training is intense and the
loneliness can be overwhelm-
ing, Alexander and her fellow
Wolf Packers know that whether
a 5 a.m. drill or the real thing,
they'll be ready to respond.

concern. The money raised is
central to supporting the Ameri-
can Cancer Society's mission,
which aims to focus efforts in four
main areas: research, education,
advocacy, and service.
Research -The American Can-
cer Society is the largest non-prof-
it, non- governmental funded of
cancer research in the United
States, having spent over $2 bil-
lion dollars on cancer research
Education -Teach people how
to avoid preventable cancers,
when to get early detection tests,
what treatment options exist and
how to care for the cancer
patient. We sponsor support
groups, hold classes, seminars
and forums, do outreach to health
professionals who need to know
the latest information on treat-
ment and clinical trials, and we
develop programs aimed at youth
and adults on the advantages of
healthy lifestyle choices (don't
smoke, eat fruits and vegetables,
exercise regularly, use sunscreen,
follow early detection guidelines).
Advocacy -Legislative advoca-
cy at the federal, state, and local
levels is another area where the
American Cancer Society makes a
difference. Advocacy is a force
multiplier in the war against can-
cer. Changes in laws can impact
millions of people, exponentially
expanding and enhancing the
American Cancer Society's mis-
sion to eliminate cancer as a
major health problem. The public
policy arena can be as powerful a
tool against cancer as the lab.
Service We provide free,
and support by phone at 800-ACT-
2345 or computer at www.can-
cer.org every day and night of the
year. With upwards of 80,000 vol-
unteers in Florida, we provide
services directly to cancer
patients and their families. We
have three Hope Lodges in Flori-
da, providing free lodging to
patients who need to travel for
treatment. We provide transporta-
tion for cancer patients to their
doctor's appointments and treat-
ments, help people cope with
their illness through support
groups, offer scholarships to
young cancer survivors, make
possible summer camps and
recreational outings for children
with cancer, and provide organ-
ized opportunities for the public
to join the fight against cancer.
Every dollar raised by the
American Cancer Society is strate-
gically invested in the fight against
cancer -. 15.9 percent going
toward research, 22.4 percent
toward prevention programs,
14.6 percent toward detection
programs and 22.7 percent
toward direct patient services.
The Wall Street Journal has called
us "the very model of an efficient
charity" because only about 18
percent of our money goes
toward fund raising and less than
7 percent goes toward overall
management of the organization.
We keep our administrative costs
relatively low because we are a
volunteer-led organization that is
fortunate to have more than one
million volunteers working on
our behalf across the country.

the Synergy Brass Quintet, spon-
sored by Gibson & Valenti, will
perform on stage at the Lake
Wales Arts Center. This energetic
group of world class performers
will also be participating in
bringing their music, talent and
techniques to area children in an

their technical virtuosity, out-
standing showmanship and
diverse programming. They
have emerged as one of the
country's most exciting brass
ensembles. Already in their
young career, Synergy has per-
formed across the country and
has participated in some of the
world's most prestigious music
J festivals including the Ravinia
Music Festival, the Bethlehem
Musikfest, the Tanglewood Festi-
val and even the Boston Early

ensemble at Tanglewood in
2003, Samuel Adler invited Syn-
ergy to perform on the premiere
recording of his "Transfigura-

PCC offers Free financial aid session Feb. 24
Polk Community College and
the Polk County Schools will be
participating in a statewide initia-
tive that will provide Financials Aid
information and help to high
school students and their parents
who attend a free workshop called
College Goal Sunday.
The event will be held in PCC's
Student Center on the Winter
Haven campus on Saturday, Feb.
24, 1- 3 p.m. A $500 scholarship
that can be used at any college will
be given away to someone attend-
ing the session.
Financial aid counselors will be
assisting high school :students in
40 counties throughout the state.
"We realized our state had to take
steps to help with the process,"
said David Armstrong, Florida's
Chancellor of Community Col-
leges. He expects the event will
draw 2,000 high-school students,
most from low-income families
and many the first in their families
to attend college.
Millions of dollars are available
in student aid, but many parents
are confused and discouraged by
the forms. One of the biggest barri-
ers that college bound low-income
and minority students is the eye
glazing federal form, Free Applica-
tion for Federal Student Aid, also
known as FAFSA. Students who
show up for the College Goal event
at PCC will get help filling it out.

Inca Rose Duo performance February 18 at HBS
LAKE WALES, Fla. Historic
Bok Sanctuary will present the
Inca Rose Duo during its Music at
Pinewood concert series to be
held at Pinewood Estate on Feb-
ruary 18 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Seat-
ing is limited and ticket prices are
$20 or $15 for members.
Featuring soprano Annelise
Skovmand and guitarist Pablo
Gonz lez Jazey, the Inca Rose
Duo has received critical acclaim
for original interpretations of tra-
ditional repertoire for guitar and
voice and popular songs from
around the world. The duo
bridges classical and popular
music by melding elements from
both worlds into new musical
expressions. Their program, "Flo-
res Argentinas," is a unique inter-
pretation of classical composi-
tions colored by the characteristic
spirit of the popular folk music of
Argentina. The program will
include the song cycle "Flores
Argentines" by Carlos Gustavino
with poetry by Le6n Benar6s,
"Cinco Canciones Populares
Argentinas" by Alberto Ginestera
and works for solo guitar from the
Northwest province of Tucuman.
Both artists studied at The
Boston Conservatory where
Skovmand earned her bache-
lor's degree in voice perform-
ance and Gonz lez Jazey his
master's degree in guitar per-
formance. He teaches at the
Manuel de Falla Conservatory in
Buenos Aires, and Skovmand
maintains an active private voice
studio there also. They divide
their time between the United
States and Argentina.

Excerpt from article
"A few years ago, Polk County
introduced the use of purchasing
cards (similar to a regular credit
card) to improve the efficiency of
its accounts payable system.
Today, all of its departments/divi-
sions use the cards for purchases
under $2,500, a change that has
increased accountability among
employees and saved money for
The purchasing director
(Buddy Storey) managing the
program controls each card's
usage parameters including
spending limits, merchant accept-
ance and time of use and can
change them within 10 minutes
as needed so employees in spe-
cial circumstances can make nec-
essary purchases. The director
also can view all transactions
through a real-time electronic
statement system that tracks each
employee's expenditures as they
are made. Employees submit all
receipts to the director for verifica-
tion and tracking at the end of the
month when purchasing card bal-
ances are paid in full.
Polk County earns cash
rebates based on its total volume
of business for the year. The card
program saves time and money
on each transaction, and the Pur-
chase card transaction volume
has grown rapidly from $800,000
in 2001 to an estimated $15 mil-
lion in 2006. Storey estimates that
if the county still were using the
old system, he would have to hire
at least four more employees to
handle the county's current trans-
action volume of about 48,000
transactions per year."

Charles H. Bronson announced.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-

International Raceway to sponsor
America's oldest sports car
endurance race, which will be
held March 14-17, 2007. The win-

groves of Highlands County, the
Sebring International Raceway is
legendary for its international
sports car racing event, pat-
terned after the famed 24 Hours
of Le Mans in France. Each year
thousands of race fans arrive for
the premier race of the American
Le Mans Series to watch the
world's leading manufacturers
battle on the challenging 3.7-
mile road course.
"Sponsorship of this interna-

"We are proud of our association with the 'Fresh

excellent way to promote 'Fresh
from Florida' agricultural prod-
ucts to consumers around the
world," Bronson said. "The
growing popularity of racing,
especially with younger audi-
ences, makes this an excellent
venue for reaching an important
segment of the population."
As part of the sponsorship
agreement, the "Fresh from Flori-
da" logo will be displayed year-
round on a permanent billboard
located at front entrance of
Sebring International Raceway
and two billboards located on the
track, on 10 barrier signs around
the track during the race, on 30
banners throughout the racing
venue, in display space in the
midway area during the event, on
a full-page ad in the souvenir pro-
gram, and on the Sebring Interna-
tional Raceway web page.
"At the conclusion of the race,
all eyes will be on the winner's
circle where the victor will cele-
brate with a glass of 'Fresh from
Florida' orange juice," Bronson
said. "This is an exciting way to
advertise our state's signature
product on the global stage."
Sebring International Raceway
evolved from a World War II mili-
tary base known as Hendricks
Field. Since 1950, Sebring has
been the center of sports car rac-
ing in North America. Previous
winners at Sebring include Mario
Andretti, Phil Hill, Dan Gurney,
A.J. Foyt, Stirling Moss, Juan
Manuel Fangio and Bobby Rahal.

Women's Heart Day
TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) rec-
ognizes National Women's Heart
Day on Feb. 16, 2007 as part of Feb-
ruary's American Heart Month.
"National Women's Heart Day
is a great opportunity to inform
women in our state about the
prevention of heart disease and
heart attacks," said Deputy State
Health Officer Bonita Sorensen,
M.D., M.B.A. "We urge every
Floridian to 'listen to their heart'
and join us as we advocate for
Nationally, heart disease is the
number one cause of death for
women over the age of 25. For
many people, the first symptom
of heart disease is a heart attack.
Every woman should know how
to identify the symptoms of a
heart attack and how to get
immediate medical help. In 2005,
heart attacks claimed the lives of
4,408 women in Florida.
Many heart attacks start slowly
as mild pain or discomfort. The
most common warning signs are:
Chest discomfort: Uncom-
fortable pressure, squeezing, full-
ness, or pain in the center of the
chest. The discomfort may be
mild or severe, may last a few
minutes, or may come and go.
Upper body discomfort: Pain
or discomfort in one or both
arms, the back, neck, jaw, or
Shortness of breath. T'.:;
may occur with or without c ,est
Other symptoms: Nausea,
light-headedness, or a cold sweat.
Women are somewhat more
likely than men to experience
shortness of breath, vomiting,
nausea, and back or jaw pain.
If you think you or someone
else may be having a heart
attack, it is crucial to act quickly
to prevent disability or death.
Call 9-1-1 immediately. Emer-
gency personnel can begin treat-
ment to stop a heart attack on
the way to the hospital.

Alternative to cypress mulch is nature friendly
FORT MYERS Chopping
down a cypress tree to build a bet-
ter landscape is like tearing down
a historical home for lumber to
build a better garage. The end
products may be pretty to look at
but the price is incalculable and
the materials irreplaceable.
If you've been in Florida for
more than 48 hours, your vocabu-
lary has already expanded .to
include words like nature friendly
and environmental impact.
Amble along the boardwalk that
threads through a wetland sanc-
tuary and you'll discover a buffet
of ecological terms that include
the likes of otter ponds, pine flats
and the grandfathers of the
marsh, cypress trees.
Cypress are survivors. They
thrive in the rainy season and win-
ter droughts, hold ground in fires
and stand like giant exclamation
points penetrating the wetlands'
leafy canopy. .
What they cannot survive is
the lumbering operations that
have been stealing one of nature's
historical treasures an acre at a
time since the state's pioneers set-
tled Florida in the 1800s. The
hardy trees have been used for
furniture, fences and now
flowerbeds. Homeowners insist'
cypress mulch is a superior land-
escaping product and longer last-
ing than alternatives.
The ironic reality is it takes
hundreds of years for cypress
trees to develop the hardwood
cores that gave mulch the reputa-
tion for durability. However, over-
harvesting has stripped vast areas
of the large, mature trees, the
ones with hardwood cores.
Younger and younger trees are
being chopped and chipped for
mulch, which means mulch
made from the immature trees is
not likely to perform any better
than alternative products. It will
not look any better, either, since
other landscape choices are avail-
able in a range of hues, including
the hallmark gold-brown earth
tones of cypress chips.
Tons of cypress mulch piled on
pallets in garden shops make it
easy to miss some other truths
about cypress trees:
Experts estimate that when a
cypress forest is harvested,
between 70 and 80 percent will
remain barren forever;
Cypress trees can live up to
1,500 years and reach 25 feet in
It takes up to 600 years for a
cypress to grow large enough for
the base to be sliced into coffee-
"Historically, people have
taken more from the environment
than they have returned, and
today we are dealing with the
consequences," said Lee County
Commissioner Ray Judah. "Wet-
lands are among the most fragile
of our ecosystems, and recovery
from decades of damage is a
painfully slow process."
Demand for cypress has
pushed some wetlands to the
edge of ecological catastrophe
and others are close. But product
reputations die as slowly as
rumors, said John Cauthen.
"Even though there are several
landscape alternatives that are
comparable, cypress mulch sales
continue to account for about 60
percent of the entire market," he
said. "Cypress is still regarded by
many people as a premium prod-
uct and is even a status symbol
with some homeowners."
Mr. Cauthen is CEO of Forestry
Resources Inc., which he founded
The Fort Myers-based compa-
ny manufactures landscape mate-
rials for wholesale and retail distri-
bution. In 1985, long before most
people even heard the words
environmentally friendly, Mr. Cau-
then established himself as an
industry pioneer when Forestry
Resources introduced FloriMulch,
its signature product.
FloriMulch an attractive,
high-quality alternative to cypress
mulch has all the properties a
landscape likes. It is organic, acts
as a weed barrier, doesn't float
away in rains, helps prevent mois-
ture from evaporating during the
dry winter months, is nontoxic,
provides an inhospitable habitat
for termites, is certified by the
Mulch and Soil Council and is
state certified as a nematode-free
Friends of the Florida Ever-
glades endorses FloriMulch. The
Suncoast Native Plant Society rec-
ommends it. Environmentalists
salute it. A most unusual pedi-
gree, but easy to understand.
FloriMulch is made from melaleu-
ca trees, a highly invasive exotic
that proliferates everywhere in
South Florida, destroys habitat,
consumes up to 2,200 gallons of
water per acre per hour, and until
Forestry Resources started to
work, it had no natural enemies.
On an average day, five to seven
acres of melaleuca trees are
cleared and turned into mulch.
"By choosing alternative
-mulch materials, homeowners,
business owners and every single
person working in the landscape
industry can play a significant role
in helping to ease the pressure on
our cypress trees and impacts to
wetlands from logging opera-
tions," according to Rick Joyce,
former director of the Lee County
Department of Environmental
Sciences and president of the
Florida Chapter of the Internation-
al Society of Arboriculture.
"Today there are many differ-
ent kinds of mulch available that
provide the same landscape and
plant health benefits as the prod-
ucts made from cypress trees," Mr.
Joyce said. "Melaleuca mulch is
one of several excellent alternative
choices that not only look good,
they are good. It is a wonderful
way to recycle this problematic
invasive; exotic tree. Wetlands and
the biological functions they pro-
vide are critical to the balance of
the planet's natural systems. It is
simple to me, wetlands are
impacted and degraded when
cypress trees are destroyed and
ground up for mulch. The benefits
of using natural materials other
than cypress reach well beyond
protecting the native trees. By
using cypress tree alternative
mulches, I. truly believe this a rela-
tively easy way to make a positive
difference to the place we live."
"FloriMulch is an outstanding
example of a win-win for the envi-
ronment," Mr. Cauthen added.
"We have taken an environmen-
tal threat and turned it into a use-
ful product that benefits land-
scapes beyond the aesthetics of
Other high-quality alternatives
to cypress mulch are eucalyptus
and pine bark, both renewable
resources that are agricultural
crops. Pine straw needles shed
by pine trees is also an excellent
weed barrier, and is available by
the bale in garden supply stores.
"Everyone has a stake in the
health and well-being of our natu-
ral resources," said Commission-
er Judah. "That means everyone
also has a responsibility to respect
and help protect our environment
and preserve the unique lifestyle it
provides to all of us."
According to Mr. Cauthen, that
can be as easy as choosing the
right landscape materials.

try leader in the manufacturing of

scape materials for wholesale and

Consumer advisory issued on Florida's lemon law
General Bill McCollum has issued
a consumer advisory related to
Florida's Lemon Law. Florida's
Lemon Law applies to new vehi-
cles sold or leased on a long-term
basis in the state of Florida. The
Attorney General's Office has a
process in place to protect con-
sumers from being victimized by
purchasing a "lemon." The office
also has additional information
available on consumers' rights
under Florida's Lemon Law.
Since the program's inception,
more than 13,300 consumers
have received refunds or replace-
Florida's Lemon Law requires
automobile manufacturers to
make a reasonable number of
repairs to remedy substantial
defects in a motor vehicle. If the
manufacturer fails to do so, they
are required to buy back the
lemon vehicle and either pay a
refund to the consumer or provide
a replacement vehicle, according
to provisions in Florida statutes.
Consumers are protected under
"Often, we view our vehicles as more than just a
convenience to many Floridians, their vehicle
is essential for work, school or family obliga-
tions. The Attorney General's Office wants to
ensure that anyone who purchases a new car in
Florida is aware of their rights and knows they
are protected under the law."
the Lemon Law for 24 months
after the date of delivery of the
vehicle. Anyone who experiences
problems with their new vehicle
during that period should immedi-
ately take the vehicle to the manu-
facturer's authorized dealer.
"Often, we view our vehicles as
more than just a convenience to
many Floridians, their vehicle is
essential for work, school or fami-
ly obligations," said McCollum.
"The Attorney General's Office
wants to ensure that anyone who
purchases a new car in Florida is
aware of their rights and knows
they are protected under the law."
The Attorney General's office
administers the New Motor Vehi-
cle Arbitration Board, which
resolves disputes between con-
sumers and manufacturers under
the Lemon Law. The board holds
arbitration hearings throughout
the state during which con-
sumers and manufacturer repre-
sentatives may appear and give
testimony in an informal setting.
The panel must then determine
whether the consumer's vehicle
meets the legal requirements to
be declared a lemon.
Arbitration hearings conducted
by the New Motor Vehicle Arbitra-
tion Board are open to the public.
The process is free, fair and expe-
ditious. Consumers are not
required to be represented by
attorneys to participate in the arbi-
tration process, but may do so if
they wish. If hiring an attorney for
the arbitration process, the Attor-
ney General's Office recommends
the following informational tips:
The New Motor Vehicle Arbi-
tration Board cannot order any
motor vehicle manufacturer to
pay attorney's fees.
Some law firms that adver-
tise over the internet do not have
physical offices in Florida, nor is all
of the information on the internet
applicable to Florida. Often this
information is very general in
nature and is meant to apply to
people throughout the country.
Before hiring an attorney,
consumers should understand
exactly how the attorney will cal-
culate their fee and whether there
will be additional charges, such as
copying, faxing or telephone calls.
The attorney should clearly
explain the method by which their
fee will be calculated.
If the law firm is not in the
city where the arbitration hearing
will be held or is located outside
the state of Florida, consumers
should obtain the name and con-
tact information of the attorney
who will attend the hearing.
Floridians should also inquire
about whether the attorney has
prior experience with the arbitra-
tion process. An in-person confer-
ence or a telephone conference
with the attorney is recommend-
ed before the day of the hearing.
When consumers hire an
attorney, the attorney is required
to keep his/her clients informed
of the progress of their case. The
attorney should return phone
calls and be accessible. The attor-
ney should advise their client if a
settlement offer is made by a
manufacturer and that it is then
the client's decision whether to
accept any such offer.
If an attorney advises their
client to sue the manufacturer in
court instead of going to an arbi-
tration hearing, the client should
ensure that the attorney explains
the reasons for this advice, the
length of time it could take to pur-
sue a court action and the risk
The Florida Bar provides an
attorney referral service and a
complaint resolution process for
clients on its web site at
Every consumer who acquires
a new or demonstrator motor
vehicle in Florida, either through
purchase or long-term lease, must
be given a copy of the "Consumer
Guide to the Florida Lemon Law"
by the dealer. This booklet, pub-
lished by the Attorney General's
Office, contains valuable informa-
tion intended to assist consumers
who may have to pursue their
rights under Florida's Lemon Law.
Information about the Lemon
Law also can be found on the
Attorney General's web site at
