Fire destroys many homes

Red Cross responds
to large brush fire

LAKE WALES, Fla. Residents
off Walk-in-Water Road off State
Road 60 should not be surprised if
they see a convoy of American Red
Cross vehicles in their area. Red
Cross disaster volunteers are out in
force to make sure everyone who
needs help as a result of Friday's
brush fire get the help they need.
On Friday afternoon, March
2, the American Red Cross Polk
County Chapter responded to a
large brush fire with shelter for
evacuees and food and water for
emergency responders. That
evening, volunteers served

approximately 500 meals,
snacks and drinks to emergency
personnel who had been bat-
tling the fire all day.
They also established a shelter
at 324 East Central Ave., Lake
Wales adjacent to the First Bap-
tist Church to help evacuees who
could not return home, or didn't
have a home to return to. That
night, the shelter housed two peo-
ple and helped a family of six.
Reportedly, as of 8 p.m. Friday,
the fire had already destroyed one
hundred acres and fourteen struc-
tures with more than one hundred
more in danger. This was a five
alarm fire which involved crews
from the Polk County Fire Depart-
ment, Polk County Emergency
Management, Frostproof Fire

Department, Bartow Fire Depart-
ment, Polk County Sheriff's.
Department, the Division of
Forestry, Lake Wales Fire Depart-
ment and the State Fish and'
Wildlife Department.
On Saturday morning, volun-
teers from ARC loaded up the
chapter's Emergency Response
Vehicle (ERV) and two chase
vehicles to do outreach and fami-
ly services in the areas heaviest
hit by the blaze.
"We are doing outreach and
family services to provide assis-
tance where assistance is need-
ed," said Emergency Service
Director Linda Scialo. "We will not
be clearing the scene until all fami-
lies have been helped."

Generous offer: WIU campus expands thanks to bank

Submitted photo/Citizens Bank
Webber alumni from Citizens Bank and Trust join bank president Greg Littleton for cer-
emonial transfer of building. To demonstrate its commitment to community service and
higher education, Citizens is leasing its 2,900-square-foot building in Babson Park to
Webber for $1 a year. Pictured Left to Right: Webber Vice President Keith Wade, Chuck
Thornton (class of 2005); Carl Kampman (1995); Brian Marbutt (1995); Citizens Bank

Citizens Bank provides building

Demonstrating its community
spirit and support for business-
related higher education Citizens
Bank & Trust is providing a build-"
ing for Webber International Uni-
% ersity in Babson Park to convert
into a new campus book store.
Webber will pay a nominal $1
per year to lease the 2,900-
square-foot bank building on SR
17 across from the university
campus. Constructed in 1984,
the building has an estimated
value of $562,000. The initial
lease is for three years, and on the
commercial market would be
worth more than $75,000.
"Rather than have the build-
ing sit empty, it made sense to
support higher. education
through a partnership with Web-
ber," said P.T. Wilson, Chairman
of the Board. "This is just one
more way Citizens Bank & Trust
can give back to the community."
\W'ebber President Rex Yenles
said the university is just begin-
ning work on the building, but he
expects the bookstore to be oper-
ational sometime this summer.
"It is absolutely wonderful of
Citizens Bank to give us this
opportunity," Yentes said. "It will
help us to expand our Student
Union on campus where the
Bookstore is currently located.

"Having a top quality university in our area
that offers undergraduate and graduate pro-
grams in business and accounting gives a
real boost to Polk County's economic develop-
ment initiatives."
Greg Littleton,
president of Citizens Bank & Trust

As our student body has grown,
we have been pressed for room
in the Student Union to add
good leisure time activities for
the students."
Citizens Bank & Trust employs
a significant number of Webber
graduates and believes the univer-
sity is a great asset to Polk County,
said Greg Littleton, president of
Citizens Bank & bust.
"Having a top quality universi-
ty in our area that offers under-
graduate and graduate programs
in business and accounting gives
a real boost to Polk County's eco-
nomic development initiatives,"
said Littleton, who is also imme-
diate past president of the Central
Florida Development Council.
"We are pleased to be able to
partner with Webber Internation-
al by providing them with the
space to expand."

Founded in 1920 and under
the same family management,
Citizens Bank & Trust is the old-
est bank in Polk County and
consistently ranks as one of
Florida's safest five-star institu-
tions. The bank has assets of
$300 million and has eight loca-
tions in Lake Wales, Winter
Haven, Auburndale, Dundee,
Frostproof, Haines City and Indi-
an Lake Estates. A ninth office
will be opening in the Spring of
2007 in the Winterset area in the
High Point Office Centre on
Cypress Gardens Boulevard.
Established in 1927 and
accredited by SACS and IACBE,
Webber International University
is a private, independent, not-for-
profit university offering degrees
at the associates, bachelors, and
masters levels exclusively in the
areas of business.

especially in winter and spring
before summer rains replenish
ground water. While home fires
still top the list as the most com-
mon American Red Cross disaster
response, wildfires become far
more common at this time of year
as vegetation dries out. The Red
Cross urges ever)' person to follow
all fire safety precautions, indoors
or outdoors, and to make and
practice a family fire escape plan,
especially from wildfire.

to protect yourself from a wildfire

majestic 205 ft. marble and
coquina Singing Tower at His-
toric Bok Sanctuary will become
a vertical stage when Project
Bandaloop, an aerial dance
troupe from Oakland, Calif., per-
forms high above the audience
on Friday and Saturday, March
16 and 17 at 8 p.m. During their
first public appearances in Flori-
da, Project Bandaloop's choreo-
graphed flips, twirls and spins as
well as carillon music will mes-
merize the audience during two
shows only. Ticket prices are
$20-50, based on row seating.
"Combining the beauty of the
setting, aerial dance and carillon
music will offer an unprecedent-
ed'cultural event in':entral Flori-
da," remarks Robert P. Sullivan,
Sanctuary president. "Project
Bandaloop is widely recognized
as one of the leading aerial and
vertical dance companies in the
world so we expect tickets to sell
out very quickly."
Project Bandaloop's perform-
ance will be choreographed
specifically for the site to explore
the relationship between move-
ment and gravity to stimulate the
viewers' awareness of the
dancers, the architectural mas-
terpiece and the natural environ-
ment. Lighting and sound will
enhance the .drama of the
evening performance.
Amelia Rudolph is founder
and artistic director of Project
Bandaloop, a name derived
from the word "Project," which
suggests something continuous-
ly developing and changing, and
the word "Bandaloop," which is
borrowed from a Tom Robbins
novel. Under Rudolph's direc-
tion, the aerial dancers create a
stunning synergistic blend of
dance, sport, ritual and environ-
mental awareness. As they per-
form, pairs of dancers are linked
by a single rope that runs from
one dancer up to an anchor
point and down to the other
Project Bandaloop has per-
formed in such well-known ven-
ues around the world as the
John F. Kennedy Center for the
Performing Arts, New York Stock
Exchange, Times Square, San
Francisco Airport, El Capitan at
Yosemite National Park, Seattle
Space Needle, de Gamma Tower

ety of settings helps free both the
dance and dance space from

tor Rudolph.

Polk County Youth Fair celebrates 60th Anniversary

The Polk County Youth Fair will
celebrate its 60th Anniversary of
service to the youth of Polk County
on March 10 16, 2007. What
began as a vision of a group of Polk
County businessmen, is now a
major part of youth development
for many of Polk County's youth.
"I am proud to chair our 60th
Celebration," said Maria Wether-
ington chairman of the Anniversary
and Publicity Committee for the
fair. "My family has been part of this
fair from day one forward.
The Youth Fair is family orient-
ed and admission is free. The fair
will consist of market animals,
ornamental plants, consumer sci-
ence exhibits, competitions and
much more.
"This fair is truly remarkable in
itself," said Kitty Hunt, Past Presi-
dent of the Polk County Youth Fair.
"Polk County comes together as
volunteers to support and educate
our Polk County Youth. Not only are

these exhibitors learning to care for
their projects, they are learning to
take responsibility for their project
and see it through to the end."

Dr. Canter Brown, Jr., a Flori-
da historian and professor of his-
tory at Fort Valley State Universi-
ty, Fort Valley, Ga., will share
stories about. "Florida's Peace
River Frontier, 1818-95," at 2
p.m., Sunday, March 11, in the
South Florida Community Col-
lege University Center Auditori-
um, Highlands Campus, Avon
Park, His program is part of
SFCC's Kaleidoscope Series.
As a native of Bartow, born
into a family that settled in Fort
Meade, Dr. Brown's childhood
was steeped in the stories, of a
bygone people he came to care
deeply about. "I grew up living
and breathing Peace River histo-
ry," he said.
,Dr. Brown's passion was
flamed in high school while he
worked at his hometown news-
paper, the Fort Meade Leader. He
immersed himself in its catalog
of old issues going back to 1908
and read the recollections that
aging pioneers continued to
share. "They were fascinating,
but they didn't always make
sense," he said. He set the goal of
researching the period accurate-
ly and recording its history. His
efforts culminated with the publi-
cation of his book, "Florida's
Peace River Frontier," in 1991.
The population of the Peace
River Valley sprang up around
Fort Meade, one of the oldest
,settlements in Florida. As Dr.
Brown pointed out, the original
inhabitants, Redstick Creek Indi-
ans from Alabama and Black
Seminoles, were followed by
American military who built the
fort that gave the town its name.
Fort Meade was at the center of
the eight-year Second Seminole
War, which Dr. Brown described
as the nation's longest war and
its largest slave rebellion.
The American Civil War
impacted the Peace River Valley,
though no battles were fought
there. "The area was torn down

the -middle," Dr. Brown said.
"The war literally pitted brother
against brother and father
against son. There was wide-
spread destruction."
Following the war, the area's
economy was boosted by a
thriving cattle industry that
found a ready market in Cuba.
Fortunes built during that era led
to the construction of railroads,
which, in turn, brought an influx
of English settlers who left their
mark on all of Central Florida,
including Highlands County.
One of the arrivals, Dr. Brown
noted, was O.M. Crosby, the
founder of Avon Park.
Even today, modern Floridi-
ans find themselves facing many
of the same problems that
plagued the early Peace River
Valley settlers, said Dr. Brown:
devastating freezes and hurri-
canes, diseases, the pressures
one population placed on
another, and the cyclical eco-
nomic impact of inflated and
deflated land prices.
Along with sharing the histo-
ry of Florida's fascinating pio-
neers, Dr. Brown will show pho-
tos of the period and the men
and women who became the
subjects of his research.
A prolific writer on Florida's
history, Dr. Brown has produced
numerous books on aspects of
Florida history, including "Fort
Meade, 1849-1900," "Florida's
Black Public Officials, 1867-
1924," and co-authored and co-
edited "Florida's Clerks of the
Circuit Court: Their History and
Experience," "Florida's Heritage
of Diversity: Essays in Honor of
Samuel Proctor," and the two-
volume work on "The Supreme
Court of Florida." ,
Dr. Brown holds a doctoral
degree in United States History
from Florida State University
(FSU), a Juris Doctor degree from
the FSU College of Law, and a
bachelor's degree in History from

Daylight Saving Time
is arriving early
and staying longer

Set clocks one hour ahead on
Sunday, March 11. Starting this
year, Daylight Saving Time has
been changed from its traditional
calendar dates to a start three
weeks earlier Sunday, March 11
- and a finish one week later-Sun-
day, Nov. 4. Daylight Saving Time is

practiced in order to gain an extra
hour of daylight during the early
evening, resulting in the conserva-
tion of energy by substituting natu-
ral sunlight for electrical lighting.
According to The Old Farmer's
Almanac, Daylight Saving Time
first began in 1918 during World
War I to allow for more evening
light and save fuel for the war
effort. Since then, Daylight Saving
Time has been used on and off,
with different start and end dates.
Benjamin Franklin first sug-

gested the idea in 1784. It was later
revived in 1907, when William
Willett proposed a similar system
in the pamphlet The Waste of Day-
light. The Germans were the first
to officially adopt the light-extend-
ing system in 1915, followed by
the British, and in 1918 the United
States, when Congress passed the
Standard Time Act, establishing
our time zones.
The Old Farmer's Almanac is
one of several publications pub-
lished by Yankee Publishing of

Dublin, New Hampshire. The
Almanac family of products also
includes several themed calendars
for 2007. Folks who can't find The
2007 Old Farmer's Almanac where
books and magazines are sold can

scriptions at Almanac.com (where
you can also find articles on a vari-
ety of Almanac topics, recipes, triv-
ia, and a unique home-page per-
sonalization option) or by calling

babysitter in a fun and interactive
class. The course provides training
to develop skills in five critical areas:
Leadership, safety and safe play,
basic care, first aid and profession-
alism. During the boot camp, not

then translate these skills into a pro-
fessional regular occupation.
Graduates of the course have
moved on to become the
babysitters for their churches,

neighbors, and communities,
providing a valuable service and
doing so with American Red
Cross safety standards.
The course will be March 26-29

dents will need to bring a bag lunch
each day. The cost to attend is $125.

Off-season training for boaters

By Hank Parker
Whether you just got a new
boat or your old one spent the win-
ter months parked in the garage,
you've got to be excited about the
fact that the calendar now says it's
March. Regardless of what the
weather is like at your place right
S now (I thought the groundhog did-
n't see his shadow this year), we're
only a few weeks away from
spring. And if you're like me, spring
means getting back out on .the
water and catching some big fish.
It's during the first few trips to
the lake each year that I am
reminded of what a high school
Spanish teacher once told me: "If
you don't use it, you lose it." Of
course, she was referring to my
international language skills, but
the same thing holds true for boat-
ing. Whether it's backing down a
ramp in a safe, timely manner so
you don't cause a traffic jam or
towing a trailer or running your
boat on the water, all of these activi-
ties take a certain amount of prac-
tice. Doing them well will ensure


GAINESVILLE The extended
deadline to sign up for seven 2005
Hurricane Disaster Programs is
now March 30th, announced
Kevin L. Kelley, State Executive
Director for the USDA's Farm Ser-
vice Agency (FSA).

Authorized by the Emergency
Agricultural Disaster Assistance Act
of 2006 (the Act) in June 2006,
these U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture (USDA) programs offer finan-
cial assistance to farmers and
ranchers who suffered losses due
to Hurricanes Katrina, Ophelia, Rita
or Wilma in 2005. Under the Act,
USDA's Commodity Credit Corpo-
ration (CCC) will provide payments
to eligible producers in certain
counties of Alabama, Arkansas,
Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi,
North Carolina, South Carolina,
Tennessee and Texas. The Farm
Service Agency will administer the
funds on behalf of CCC.
In Florida 37 eligible counties
are eligible for assistance as a result
of the damage caused by Hurri-
canes Katrina and Wilma, said
Kevin L. Kelley, State Executive
Director for the USDA's Farm Ser-
vice Agency (FSA).
Eligible Florida counties include
37 counties: Bay, Gulf, Liberty, Palm
Beach, Brevard, Hardee, Manatee,

more time for you on the water and
make you far more popular among
others at the lake.
Launching a boat is always easi-
er with two people: one person
backs the tow vehicle; the other
drives the boat. Backing the trailer
takes a lot of practice. Consider
practicing in a large, empty parking
lot before heading to the lake. The
lines for the parking spaces make
ideal reference points for backing.
Make sure that everyone who is
going to be using the boat gets
plenty of practice time. Once
you've mastered the parking lot, try
the boat ramp but remember the
addition of traffic and people
watching your every move can
make some people nervous. But if
you've practiced enough you
should have no problem.
When I'm launching my Ranger
bass boat, I make sure that every-
thing is on boardbefore I begin
backing down the ramp so I don't
slow the process down any more
than I have to. Put your ice chests,
fishing gear, the dog, batteries,
whatever you take with you on the

lier, Holmes, Okaloosa, Volusia, De
Soto, Indian River, Okeechobee,
Wakulla, Escambia, Jackson,
Orange, Walton, Franklin, Lee,
Osceola, Washington and Glades.
Eligible counties are those
declared primary natural disaster
areas by Secretary Johanns or desig-
nated a major disaster or emer-
gency by President Bush for 2005
calendar-year hurricanes Katrina,
Ophelia, Wilma or Rita. Counties
contiguous to a primary county are
also eligible. The Act did not include
counties declared disaster areas by
Hurricane Dennis. Program fact
sheets include the list of eligible
counties, as well as program details,
and can be found online at
http://www.fsa.usda.gov, click on
Disaster Assistance Programs. To
receive benefits, producers must
meet other eligibility requirements.
2005 Hurricanes Livestock
Compensation Program provides
payments to livestock owners and
cash lessees for certain feed losses.
2005 Hurricanes Livestock
Indemnity Program II provides
benefits to livestock owners and
contract growers for certain live-

water, in the boat before you take
your place in line. This speeds up
the process a lot.
* As far as trailering your boat, this
requires just as much practice.
There are a lot of things to keep in
mind (also, check with the manu-
facturer of your tow vehicle to
make sure it's suitable for towing
your make and model of boat),
especially the added length of your
entire rig. Allow extra room for
turning and for getting by arid
around traffic. That extra 20 or so
feet and a couple of thousand
pounds that you are towing can sig-
nificantly impact your acceleration
and maneuvering. In addition to
making sure that you use all of your
safety equipment (lights, chains,
etc.) when you tow, it would be a
good idea to test drive your rig
before going to the lake just to see
how the vehicle (whether old or
new) handles the towing duties.
See how it turns and accelerates

and how much clearance you need
to back up and get around obsta-
cles. Believe me, it pays off.
Once you are on the water,

make sure you observe all the post-
ed signs concerning boat traffic.
Don't drive the boat beyond your
limits to control it and never oper-
ate it while under the influence of
intoxicating substances. Just know-
ing how to safely and respectfully
maneuver your boat around other
boats and into fishing and docking
positions will greatly increase your
enjoyment of your trip.
We all own boats because we
love the lifestyle, enjoy getting out
of the house and fishing or just
spending time with family and
friends. To make sure we continue
having fun, these last few weeks
before the days get longer and the
weather gets warmer is the perfect
time to polish and perfect every
aspect of our boating skills. It's time
well spent and something the
whole family can be a part of, just
like every member of the family
takes part in enjoying the boat.

2005 Hurricanes Citrus Pro-
gram provides benefits to citrus
producers who suffered citrus crop
production losses and associated
fruit-bearing tree damage, includ-
ing related clean-up and rehabilita-
tion costs.
2005 Hurricanes Fruit and Veg-
etable Program provides benefits
to producers who suffered fruit and

2005 Hurricanes Tropical Fruit
Program provides benefits to pro-

2005 Hurricanes Nursery
Program provides benefits to
commercial ornamental nursery
and fernery producers who suf-
fered inventory losses and
incurred clean-up costs.
. 2005 Hurricanes Tree Assis-
tance Program (TAP) provides
payments to eligible owners of
commercially grown Christmas
trees, ornamental trees, nursery
trees, potted trees, bushes
(including shrubs) and vines that
were lost or damaged due to
2005 hurricanes.
Producers may not receive pay-
ments made under other federal

programs for the same losses.
According to Kelley, producers
who received a Federal Crop Insur-
ance indemnity payment will not
be eligible for payments under the
2005 Hurricanes Citrus Program,
Tropical Fruit Program, Fruit and
Vegetable Program, and Nursery
Program. An exception to this is
that although an indemnity pay-
ment was received, producers
may be eligible for the clean-up
portion of the Nursery Program.
Some producers may have little
documentation of losses as a
result of hurricane devastation;
however, USDA will require pro-
ducers to provide all available doc-
umentation. Interested farmers
may contact their local USDA Ser-
vice Centers for further informa-
tion on eligibility requirements and
application procedures for these
and other programs.
Early this year, USDA
announced $2.8 billion in aid to
assist victims of the 2005 hurricane
season. USDA provided approxi-
mately $1.2 billion of those funds
through nine disaster programs.

aster programs are available at

Disaster Assistance Programs.

Wildfire threat

remains concern

Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson warns of a higher wild-
fire threat this spring due to
warm temperatures and a lack
of widespread rainfall. Although
wildfires can occur throughout
the year in Florida, the most
active time for wildfires is from
March to June. Because of the
higher wildfire danger, Mr.
Bronson is asking all Floridians
to be extremely careful with
outdoor burning.
"People are the major cause
of wildfires in Florida whether it
is the crime of arson, escaped
fire from land-clearing, children
experimenting with matches or
an unattended yard fire," Bron-
son said. "People are responsi-
ble for about 85 percent of all
Florida wildfires."
For many people, disposing
of yard waste (leaves, grass clip-
pings, tree limbs, palm fronds,
etc.) with a small fire is a routine
part of spring cleaning. This
activity is permitted in most
Florida counties without any
specific authorization. But Mr.
Bronson emphasized that the
"fire must be attended at all times
and be in a pile no greater than 8
feet in diameter, or in a noncom-
bustible container. In addition,
the fire must be at least 25 feet
from the home of the person
burning or any wooded area, at
least 50 feet from any paved
roadway and at least 150 feet
from other occupied buildings.
If the wildfire threat
becomes severe, counties,
municipalities or the Florida

Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services could enact
a burn ban that prohibits all
outdoor burning until weather
conditions improve. Residents
should check with their local
office of the Florida Division of
Forestry or the nearest fire
department to learn if a burn
ban is in effect and how to burn
legally and safely.
"We all need to be sure that
our carelessness does not cre-
ate a wildfire that endangers
the property of others," Bron-
son said.
Inadequate or widely scat-
tered precipitation typically
means an increased wildfire
danger and is monitored by the
Keetch-Byram Drought Index
(KBDI). The index measures the
amount of moisture in the upper
three feet of soil on a scale,
which ranges from 0 (flood con-
ditions) to 800 (desert-like con-
ditions). In recent weeks, the
KBDI has risen to a statewide
average of 404, with a simultane-
ous increase in the number of
wildfires. Twenty percent of the
state is now recording KBDI
measurements of over 600.
The Division of Forestry
maintains a toll-free Arson Alert
Hotline 1-800-342-5869 for
anonymous tips on arson in
wooded or forested areas and
offers a reward of up to $5,000
for information leading to the
conviction of an arsonist.
Since January 1, the Division
of Forestry has responded to 516
wildfires that have burned
31,470 acres.
