community gathering rather
than an athletic
event, anyone and every-

teams. These teams share a
common purpose their sup-
port of the American Cancer
Society's mission.
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 challenges and
joys of being a caregiver. There is
peace of mind in knowing that
together we can face the chal-
lenges ahead.

Where Does the
Money Go?
In the broadest sense, all the
money raised goes to eliminating
cancer as a major health concern.
The money raised is central to
supporting the American 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 founder of
cancer research in the United
States,, having spent over $2 bil-
lion dollars on cancer research
since 1946.
Education: We teach people
how to avoid preventable can-
cers, when to get early detection
tests, what treatment options
exist and how to care for the can-
cer 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,
around-the-clock information
and support by phone (800-ACT-
2345) or computer (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.
Relay for Life will be held in
Frostproof on Friday and Satur-
day, March 23 and 24, 2007. San-
dra Sackett is the event Chairman
in Frostproof (863) 635-5456 and
AlanaTrimmier (863) 688-2326, is
the American Cancer Society-
Polk Units representative based in

Sheriff Grady Judd: "I am so
appreciative that so many business-
es refused to sell alcohol to a
minor-it shows that the vast
majority of convenience businesses
in Polk County care about our chil-
dren and follow the law. For those
who do not comply with the law,
we will arrest them and we will
keep checking their businesses."
PCSO Vision: Polk County
Sheriff's Office members will pro-
tect the community by proactively
preventing crime and safely
detaining those arrested. Quality
of life will be improved through
innovation, education, teamwork,
community partnerships, and
exceptional customer service. We
will measure, benchmark, and
create models to ensure profes-
sional, efficient, quality service is
provided to those we serve.

Information sought

in armed robbery

Polk County Sheriff's detec-
tives are seeking information
about an armed robbery
which occurred on Friday,
March 9, 2007 at approximate-
ly 6 a.m. at the Auburndale
Food Store located at 1115 N.
Berkley Road in Auburndale.
An unknown white male sus-
pect entered the Auburndale
Food Store and asked a clerk
where he could find cigarettes.
After the clerk directed him to the
cigarette shelf, the suspect got a
carton of cigarettes, returned to
the front counter brandishing a
small silv lver and told the
clerk, "Give me all your money."
The clerk opened the cash regis-
ter and the suspect leaned across
the counter and removed the
money from the cash register.
Upon exiting the store, the sus-
pect got into a dark-colored SUV
and left the parking lot, heading
westbound on Old Dixie High-
way towards Saddle Creek Road.
The suspect is described as a
white male in his forty's with a
medium build. A witness who
was in the store at the time it was
robbed was able to complete a
composite sketch of the suspect.

Sheriff's Office K-9 Teams receive certification

Sheriff Grady Judd is proud to
announce that on Thursday,
March 8, 2007, the Polk County.
Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit graduated
four K-9 teams from a 400-hour K-
9 narcotics detection class that
ended with an intense 13-hour
day of evaluation.
The class consisted of 10
weeks of instruction in the detec-
tion of illegal narcotics as well as
beginning tracking. Certification
was designated after the teams
demonstrated the ability of their
dogs to recognize and alert to the
odor of illegal narcotics, and the
handlers to recognize these alerts

in their dogs.
The searches consisted of
inside and outside vehicles and
buildings as well as open areas to
the standards of the North Ameri-
can Police Work-dog Association
(NAPWDA), a nationally recog-
nized K-9 organization.
The following K-9 teams are
now nationally recognized:
Sergeant Jim Bryan and K-9
Deputy Russ Hilson and K-9
Deputy Kurt Walker and K-9
Deputy Bobby Boehmler and

K-9 Falco
"These teams will be working
to make the streets of our county
safer," said Sheriff Grady Judd.
"Our K-9 teams are a highly rec-
ognized crime fighting resource
in our community, and one the
PCSO is proud to provide."
Along with the newly certified
teams, Deputy Paul Leslie and K-9
Halo, Deputy Bobby Boehmler
and K-9 Falco, and Deputy Steve
Hearth and K-9 Britt were certified
through the standards of the Flori-
da Department of Law Enforce-
ment and NAPWDA in the areas
of obedience, criminal apprehen-

sion, building, area and article
searches, and tracking.
In addition to the PCSO teams,
officers from the Mulberry Police
Department and the Fort Meade
Police Department were also cer-
tified. Those K-9 teams are:
Mulberry Police Officer Sara
Movahedi and K-9 Cookie
Mulberry Police Officer Dave
Davis and K-9 Silvo
Ft Meade Police Officer Bret
Hermelbracht and K-9 Tito
Congratulations to all of the
handlers and the canines on this

Lake Ashton residents preview LW Art Show samples

Over 250 Lake Ashton resi-
dents welcomed Betsy Stockdill,
Lake Wales Art Show Chairman,
to their March 5 residents meet-
ing. The enthusiastic group
learned about the Art Show's 35-
year history and how the level of
artistry has grown in terms of
quality and variety since the
inception of the show.
A sampling of fine art pur-
chased at past shows for the per-
manent collection of the Lake
Wales Art Center was on display
at the meeting. Guests examined
the works, which resulted in live-
ly discussions about the paint-

ings, sculptures, jewelry, and
other items that would be avail-
able at this year's art show.
Betsy advised the group that
the Lake Wales Art Show is an
event for the whole family and
encouraged the Lake Ashton res-
idents to bring family and friends
along to the show.
Music will fill the air, which
will enhance the festive mood as
visitors stroll through the show
under the canopy of oaks.
Children can create their own
art at the Children's Activity Tent.
Mom and Dad, Grandma and
Grandpa can help or watch a

baby Picasso in the making. On
Sunday, just outside the Chil-
dren's Activity Tent, a balloon
artist will be working his magic
from 12 noon to 3 p.m.
Award winning works of art
by students from Ridge area
schools will also be on display at
the Student Art Show tent.

of delicious and fun foods at the

historic downtown Lake Wales.
The area will be abuzz with
activity. Restaurants and retail

-. .By the National Wild'
Turkey Federation
0 When Florida's wild turkey
season opens in March, young and
novice hunters will be able to go
afield before they complete a
hunter education course thanks to
a new mentor program.

Anyone 16 years or older and
born on or after June 1; 1975 can
hunt under the supervision of a
licensed hunter, 21 or older, with-
out having to complete the state's
hunter safety certification. So far,
more than 6,000 mentor hunting
licenses have been sold since the
program began last year.

Mentored hunting. is a key
component of the Families Afield
program, a partnership of the
National Wild Turkey Federation,
the National Shooting Sports Foun-
dation and the U.S. Sportsmen's
Alliance that works to remove
youth hunting barriers across the

Public Service Commission
(PSC) recently confirmed that
Verizon has provided $89,708 in
refunds to 3,322 customers as
directed by agency order. Fol-
lowing the results of a recent
service quality inspection, the
PSC ordered Verizon to provide
the refunds to customers over-
charged for calling card calls
made from September 2004
through August 2006.
"The Commission closely
monitors Florida's regulated
telecommunications carriers to
ensure that established service
quality standards are being met,"
said PSC Chairman Lisa Polak
Edgar. "Staff work diligently as
consumer advocates to identify
areas of concern and guide serv-
ice providers appropriately."
--As a part of the PSC service
quality evaluation program, staff
discovered Verizon incorrectly
billed a small number of presub-
scribed customers on certain

optional long distance calling
plans. Affected customers were
-charged at a rate of $0.75 per
minute instead of $0.50 per minute
as defined in Verizon's tariff.
At the direction of the PSC,
Verizon corrected the error, iden-
tified the affected customers and
submitted a refund proposal.
The PSC approved the proposal
at its October 3, 2006, Agenda
Conference. Verizon recently
provided the PSC with documen-
tation showing that the affected
customers had received refunds.
The PSC is committed to mak-
ing sure that Florida's consumers
receive their electric, natural gas,
telephone, water, and wastewater
services in a safe, affordable, and
reliable manner. The PSC exercis-
es regulatory authority over utili-
ties in the areas of rate base/eco-
nomic regulation; competitive
market oversight; and monitoring
of safety, reliability, and service.

Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson today announced that
the Dwight W. Wilson property
in Polk County and Adams
Farms, Inc., in Walton County
have qualified as Century Pio-
neer Family Farms. Recognition
in this program means the fami-
lies have maintained continuous

ownership of the property for at
least 100 years.
"These families have been able
to retain ownership of their land
through the Depression, droughts,
freezes and the urbanization of
Florida," Bronson said. "That is a
great tribute to the many genera-
tions of these families."
The Wilson property is currently
growing citrus, but produced

strawberries, watermelon and field
peas in the past. The Adams prop-
erty consists of 1,600 acres, where
peanuts, cotton, corn were pro-
duced, as well as a cow/calf opera-
tion. The property is the site where
former Florida Supreme Court Jus-
tice Alto Adams was born.
Since the. program began 26
years ago, 128 farm families have
received the Century Pioneer Far.ily.

Farm designation. The program is
administered by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer
Services with assistance from the
Florida Agricultural Museum.
