Deputy Speirs nominated


Polk Sheriff's Deputy Doug
Speirs has been nominated as
an America's Most Wanted All-
'Star, honoring his outstanding
service to the community.
As you know, Deputy Speirs
was shot by Angelo Freeland on
Thursday, Oct. 28, 2006 during
the same incident where Free-
land murdered Deputy Matthew
Williams and killed his K-9 part-
ner DiOGi. Deputy Speirs
exchanged gun fire with Free-
land as Freeland was standing


over Deputy
Williams.
Sheriff
Judd wasn't
surprised to
learn of Speirs
being nomi-
nated. "Doug
laid his life on
the line trying
to save his Deputy Doug
comrade," Speirs
said Judd.
"This agency has the finest men


and women in the nation; Doug
is an outstanding example of
our team of heroes."
For the third year in a row,
America's Most Wanted has
teamed up with Nextel to find a
way to honor first responders,
by creating the AMW All-Star
Awards.
Through online voting,
members of the community
recognize one All-Star Finalist
each week through mid April.
Go to the America's Most Want-


ed website at www.amw.com
to cast your vote for Deputy
Speirs.
Anyone can vote and it is
important to vote once a day.
The All-Star who receives the
most votes in a week is selected
as a finalist. Finalist will be pro-
filed on the America's Most
Wanted television show, and
they receive an AMW duffle bag
filled with AMW gear. Finalists
will be entered in the voting for
the grand prize, $10,000 and a

FHS Boys Basketball Team District Champs


By Donna Carter
The Frostproof varsity boys
basketball team are the District
Champions for the second year
in a row beating Lake Placid for
the victory. The team won 15
straight games until the Region-
al Semi-final playoffs getting
defeated by Ft. Myers Bishop
Verot Catholic ending their sea-
son with an impressive 21-7
record. The Bulldogs had a
good bench this year. There
were always one to two strong
players per position ready and
waiting to show their stuff out
on the court. Head coach
Aubrey Whitaker said "There
wasn't a stand out. They all con-
tributed." He also went on to
say, "Our defense was our
strength sometimes our defense
won us the game."
Not only is this a talented
team, they also make the grade.
Over half the team has a GPA of
3.0 or higher and are members
of the National Honor Society.
The team had 2 seniors this

St. Louis. Cox scored his
1000th point in the Wauchula
game earlier in the season. Cox
has been accepted to South-
east Missouri State on an ath-
letic scholarship and St. Louis
has had offers but is undecided
at this time.
I know it is only March but
October is right around the
corner and with only loosing
two seniors the team will be
ready to go with the hopes and
anticipation of a winning sea-
son next year.

Chamber announces 12th Annual Fun Nite

tomer Maria Percy.


Chalet Suzanne and


Citizens Bank unite


Citizens Bank & Trust and
the Chalet Suzanne Restau-
rant and Country Inn, have
joined together to promote
their shared Polk County her-
itage and commitment to qual-
ity customer 'service. Citizens
was founded in 1920 by the
Maxcy family, and the Chalet
was founded in 1931 by the
Hinshaws, and both still have
family members at the helm.
For opening a bank
account, Citizens is offering
new customers a Magical
Morning full country breakfast
for two at the world-famous
Chalet, north of Lake Wales.
Every Tuesday in March, Citi-
zens bank branches also are
serving free gourmet Chalet
Suzanne soups in the lobby
from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
"Citizens and the Chalet
both have been around a long
time so we thought it would be
a natural partnership," said Cit-
izens Board Chairman P.T. Wil-
son. "Both of us share not only
a rich heritage but a commit-
ment to customer service."
While Citizens is using the
Chalet offer to promote-its free
checking account, new cus-
tomers can earn the incentive
with any type of deposit
account, excluding CDs. The
bank also added a new twist.
Existing customers also can
earn the breakfast for 2 at the
Chalet by bringing in a new
customer. Both the new cus-
tomer and the existing account
holder sponsor get the free
breakfast for two gift certifi-
cate after the account is open
60 days.
"Many banks are giving
away inexpensive small appli-


ances, but we wanted to do
something really special for our
existing and new customers,"
said Citizens President Greg Lit-
tleton. "The Chalet is a special
place, and we like to think our
bank is very special also. We
plan to prove that to these new
customers."
The Chalet Suzanne is
world famous for not only
gourmet food, but the dining
experience itself. The essence
of the Chalet's reputation is its
cuisine, food that Gourmet
Magazine calls "glorious,"
served in a unique setting of
five quaint rooms on many lev-
els, overlooking the lake. Every
corner glows with antiques,
stained glass and old lamps
from far away places.
"Citizens is our bank
because it provides great serv-
ice to the business customer,"
said Eric Hinshaw, a Chalet
owner in the third generation
of the fouitling family. "We
are pleased to join with Citi-
zens in offering our special
dining experience to more
people in Polk County."
Founded in 1920 and under
the same family management,
Citizens Bank & Trust is the
oldest 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
locations in Lake Wales, Win-
ter Haven, Auburndale,
Dundee, Frostproof, Haines
City and Indian Lake Estates. A
ninth office will be opening in
the Spring of 2007 in the Win-
terset area in the High Point
Office Centre on Cypress Gar-
dens Boulevard.

Art League announces


Open House celebration


A handful of local artists got
together ten years ago and decid-
ed to form the Frostproof Art
League. One hundred plus'mem-
bers later, the League is going
strong, with a wonderful facility
to call home and to showcase
the many talents of area artists.
The League will host the tenth
anniversary open house on Sat-
urday, March 31, 2007 from 1
p.m. 4 p.m. in the afternoon at
12 East Wall Street, the public is
invited to attend. .
As the old Frostproof High
School was being renovated,
(now Frostproof's City Hall)
some of the old windows were
salvaged which have now been


hand painted by local artisans. A
number of these works are on
display at local businesses. All of
the windows will be at the open
house. Proceeds from the sales
of the windows will benefit the
'Historical Preservation Commit-
tee and the Frostproof Art League
and Gallery. As a limited number
of windows are available, they
will be sold on a first come, first
serve basis. More windows will
be made available from the reno-
vation in the future and visitors
may be able to advance order a
particular design at the open
house. For more information call
the Art League and Gallery (863)

Shine your light with persistence and consistence


Our success in FLYing comes at
the heels of two important words:
Persistence and Consistence.
When we look at our own history
we see an inconsistency in how we
looked at our housework. You
know the old story of stash and
dash, crisis cleaning and then crash
and burn. This left our homes in
shambles after a few short days.
Then we would beat ourselves up
because of it!
I had to deal with this when I
made my final attempt at getting
organized in 1999. On Jan. 1, I
spent all day looking at why Pam
and Peggy's card file system never
worked for very long for me. It was
not that it'was not a good system; it
was, but it was how I did it was the
problem. I would go gung ho for
several days and then run out of
steam. Then the guilt would enter
into the equation and I would not
want to look at the box and stick it
under the counter.
As I examined why their system
only worked for a little while; I real-
ized a major factor. I was working
too hard and not letting the system
to work for me. I had not ever estab-
lished habits. I only let the cards
guide me and it didn't matter what
order theywere in. If getting dressed
popped up at 3 in the afternoon that
was when I did it, that is so alien to
me now. I also had way too many
cards. With my perfectionism, I
thought if one card was good then a
card for everything I do would be
much better. Boy was I wrong. That
abundance of cards was over-
whelming! I would give up!
Giving up is our lack of persist-
ence. We do this all the time when
we say we don't have time or that is
too hard. We just throw in the,
towel and begin to whine, "that's
too hard, too many emails or she
doesn't understand my situation is
different." We are persistent in one


area of our lives; we hate change. If
you are not finding success it is
because what you have been doing
is not working. Doesn't common
sense tell you that you have to
change something and try again.
Thomas Edison, through trial
and error and persistence eventual-
ly discovered the filament that
would glow in a glass bulb. Every


failure for him was one less thing
that he was going to have to try!
Failures are a good thing. They
teach us what not to do the next
time. That is if we don't get hung up
in our failures and beat ourselves
up for them. Use them as a learning
experience and keep plugging
away.
Every mistake I have made in
my life helps me to grow and
become wiser! If I had given up I
would not have become FlyLady. If
we don't learn from our mistakes
we are destined to make the same
ones again and again! So looking
back on that fateful January 1,
1999, I realize that I had never
established a habit and I had been
too hard on myself. That day I
determined that I would be nice to


me and practice one habit. Shining
my sink was all I had to do for the
whole month!
Let's just say I was persistent in
my quest to get organized and
along with that persistence I used
the consistency of doing one thing
every day to help me find the peace
that I knew was out there! It
worked for me and it has worked
hundreds of thousands of people
as well. When you find something
that works you stick with it. We
don't try to reinvent the light bulb
every time we screw one in a sock-
et; we trust it and don't waste our
time trying to improve on it. We are
very creative people and we love to
do things our way or shall I say try
to make better a system. Visit the
web site at www.FlyLady.net.

DOH issues norovirus safety reminder Church Directory


Handwashing helps
prevent spreading of
this contagious virus

TALLAHASSEE As part of
an ongoing effort to help Floridi-
ans stay healthy, Florida Depart-
ment of Health (DOH) Secretary
Ana Viamonte Ros, M.D., M.P.H.
reminds all Floridians to take the
necessary precautions to avoid
preventable illnesses. One such
illness is norovirus, which is
commonly called the "stomach
flu." While symptoms are similar
to those associated with the flu
(influenza), norovirus is not
related to the flu. Norovirus is
one of several hundred causes of


food poisoning and can easily be
transmitted person to person.
Norovirus is highly conta-
gious and may cause vomiting
and diarrhea. Most people begin
to feel better within one or two
days and have no long term
health effects.
"Thorough and frequent
handwashing is the key to pre-
venting the spread of gastroin-
testinal infections like
norovirus," Deputy State Health
Officer Bonita Sorensen, M.D.,
M.B.A. said. "This simple step
can help Floridians avoid numer-
ous illnesses and ward off pre-
ventable sickness."
Floridians can decrease their
chance of coming in contact with
noroviruses by following these


preventive steps:
Wash hands frequently,
especially after going to the bath-
room, changing diapers, before
eating and prior to preparing food
Carefully wash fruits and
vegetables, and cook foods thor-
oughly before eating them
Thoroughly clean and disin-
fect contaminated surfaces
immediately after an episode of
illness by using a bleach-based
household cleaner
Immediately remove and
wash clothing or linens that may
be contaminated with the virus
after an episode of illness (use hot
water and soap)
Flush or discard any vomit
and/or stool in the toilet and make
sure that the surrounding area is


kept clean
Persons infected with
norovirus should not prepare food
while they have symptoms and for
three days after they recover from
their illness. Food that may have
been contaminated by an ill per-
son should be thrown away.
DOH promotes and protects
the health and safety of all peo-
ple in Florida through the deliv-
ery of quality public health serv-
ices and the promotion of health
care standards. For more infor-
mation regarding disease pre-
vention, please visit

tional information, visit

Florida teachers invited to Mount Vernon


MOUNT VERNON, VA. His-
toric Mount Vernori invites Florida
teachers, grades 3-12, to apply for a
complimentary one-week study
program at George Washington's
home in Northern Virginia, June 9-
15, 2007. The George Washington
Teachers' Institute provides an
intensive study of George Washing-
ton and his world through discus-
sions led by noted Washington
scholars and hands-on workshops.
Teachers enrolled in the Institute
reside in lodging on the grounds of
Mount Vernon, within sight of
Washington's Mansion. Each par-
ticipating teacher receives room
and board and a stipend of up to
$350 for travel expenses.
In addition to meeting with
Mount Vernon's historians, cura-


tors, and educators, teachers will
explore 18th-century colonial life
and politics by spending a day
exploring Monticello, the home of
Thomas Jefferson, and Montpelier,
the home of James Madison. Upon
completing the Institute's study
program, teachers are required to
prepare a lesson plan on teaching
about George Washington and
conduct a seminar for their col-
leagues in their home districts to
share the information they have
gained at the Institute.
The George Washington
Teachers' Institute is made possi-
ble for Florida teachers by the
William R. Kenan Jr. Charitable
Trust. For information and appli-
cations, please e-mail educa-
tion@mountvernon.org or call

Mount Vernon strives to preserve
George Washington's place in his-
tory as "First in War, First in Peace,
and First in the Hearts of His Coun-
trymen." Mount Vernon is owned
and operated by the Mount Vernon

Docks can be vital habitats for fish life


When fishing a tournament
or just for fun at any of the great
fisheries we have across the
nation, there's undoubtedly
more than one way to catch
some fish. With that many fish
and that many surface acres of
water, it's not uncommon to see
two different people have great
fishing days while doing com-
pletely different things. Some
people like to cover a lot of
water and rush from spot to
spot, but I prefer to pick a cou-
ple of different areas to target
and focus my efforts there.
More and more homes are
being built on lakes around the
country, and one of the first
things that the new homeown-
ers do once they've built their
home on the lake is build a
dock. These docks aren't just for
tying up, boats they make for
great fishing. A lot of tourna-
ment money has been won fish-
ing docks over the years and yet
it's still an underrated pattern for
too many anglers. But hopefully,
by knowing how to fish a dock
thoroughly and effectively, you
can have more success when
fishing docks.
Docks are vital fish habitats
because they address the basic
needs: food and shelter. Espe-
cially on wooden docks and pil-
ings, algae growth draws in
small baitfish like shad. These
shad will feed on the vegetation
that clings to the docks and pil-
ings, and in turn draw in
predatory bass looking, for an
easy meal. Also, these docks
draw in smaller fish like the bait-
fish and bluegill, which hover
around docks to avoid preda-
tion. When the sun is high and
the water is warm, bass also like
to shade themselves under and
around boat docks. Also, a lot of
times, people who own boat

docks or have them near their
lake homes will sink brush piles
nearby to hold crappie. These
brush piles can also hold a lot of
bass. I normally stay away from
floating docks, since they don't
have pilings, but any stationary
dock especially wooden ones -
can be a potential honey hole.
An important part of knowing
whether the dock fishing is going
to stay consistent, say throughout
a tournament, is the water level.
Sometimes, docks may only have
a few feet of water under them. If
the lake is dropped six inches
during the week, the pattern
probably won't hold. But if the
docks are in deeper water, you
can be reasonably certain that
lakes levels won't affect the fish-
ing there. Docks are pretty much
an effective location anytime
except the dead of winter. Once
the water temperature gets high-
er than 50 degrees, try looking for
bass there.
There's two ways to fish a
dock: flipping and skipping.
There are a lot of great flippers
these days and it's a great way to
catch fish. I use an Abu Garcia
REVO STX spooled with 25-
pound Berkley Big Game line to
flip baits like PowerBait Chigger
Craws and Classic Jigs. Usually
in pre-spawn months, mid-day,


once the water has warmed up, I
can flip the shade side of these
docks and trigger a reaction
strike from the bass. I try to use
colors and patterns of baits that
match the bluegill or shad in the
area and use a heavy weight.
The heavy weight is helpful if
there's any wind, plus it makes
the bait fall faster a must when
going for a reaction bite.
Skipping can be even more
effective for fishing docks
because it allows you to get
much further underneath the
dock than you can with flipping.
For skipping, I prefer an Abu
Garcia spinning reel spooled
with Trilene Maxx, because it's
sensitive enough to detect
strikes but tough enough to use
around structure like docks. I
use a Cardinal spinning reel on a
medium-heavy to medium-light
rod, what I call 70/30 70 per-
cent back bone and 30 percent
tip to get the right kind of
skip. It has to give a little. The

water, you have to raise the rod.

Docks can hold a lot of fish,
but knowing why the fish are
there and what they're looking
for will put you a long way
towards catching more and big-
ger bass.

Health Department encourages colon cancer screenings


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) rec-
ognizes March as National Col-
orectal Cancer Awareness Month.
Throughout the entire month of
March, efforts are dedicated to
educate and increase awareness
about colorectal cancer for all
people over 50 years old.
"Colorectal cancer can be cur-


able if found early. Colon cancer
starts with a small growth and
testing can help physicians find
and remove these growths before
they even become cancerous,"
DOH Secretary Ana M. Viamonte
Ros, M.D., M.P.H. said. "I encour-
age all individuals over 50 and
everyone who is at risk to get test-
ed. Screening saves lives."


Colorectal cancer, most com-
monly known as colon cancer,
develops in the colon or rectum
and is the second most diag-
nosed cancer in both men and
women. According to Florida's
cancer registry, the Florida Can-
cer Data System, there were
10,620 colorectal cases diag-
nosed for 2003, the most current


data year available.
Men and women are affected
by colorectal cancer every day.
Through screening, colorectal
cancer can be detected early, and
upon early treatment, colorectal
cancer can still be curable.
Risk factors that increase a
person's chance of getting col-
orectal cancer include aging -


the average age at diagnosis is in
the mid-60s, polyps or bowel
disease, family or personal histo-
ry of colorectal cancer, fatty diet,
and smoking.
The Florida Department of
Health encourages Floridians' 50
and older to consult with their
physician to assess their risk for
colorectal cancer, if there is a


need for colorectal cancer screen-
ing, and seek treatment if diag-
nosed. For more information
about colorectal cancer, please
visit the DOH Web site at
www.doh.state.fl.us and select
"Cancer" from the drop down
box, visit the CDC's Web site at
www.cdc.gov or call the National
Cancer Institute at 1-800-4-CANCER.


DOACS nets million


pounds of pesticide


TALLAHASSEE -FloridaAgri-
culture and Consumer Services
(DOACS) Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson and Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
Secretary Michael W. Sole
announced recently that Opera-
tion Cleansweep has collected
more than one million pounds of
pesticides during the program's
12 years of operation. A partner-
ship between the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services (DOACS) and the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP), the pro-
gram collects canceled, suspend-
ed or unusable pesticides from
Florida farmers, nurseries, golf
courses and pest control compa-
nies for proper disposal.
"Our agency's efforts, and that
of DEP, have removed more than
one million pounds of unused and
outdated pesticides from farms,
businesses and other commercial
sites chemicals that otherwise
could pose a danger to our envi-
ronment," Commissioner Bron-
son said. "This program illustrates
what government can accomplish
when itworks together."
Operation Cleansweep col-
lects and disposes of pesticides to
protect agricultural workers,
emergency responders, the public
and the environment from poten-
tial health and environmental
risks from stored pesticides. Some
products are old and may be
stored in containers that are dete-
riorating, while others, such as
chlordane and DDT, can no
longer be used legally. To date,
more than one million pounds of
pesticide products have been col-
lected from nearly 1,500 partici-
pating farms, dairies, ranches,
nurseries, golf courses and profes-
sional pest control operations in
65 counties.
"Operation Cleansweep is a
convenient, cost-effective public-
private partnership to dispose of
unwanted or outdated pesticides,
providing free collection and dis-


"This program pro-
vides a safe method of
collection and disposal
that is more protective
of Florida's natural
resources and our
agricultural economy."
Michael W. Sole,
DEP Secretary

posal for Florida's pesticide con-
sumers," said DEP Secretary
Michael W. Sole. "This program
provides a safe method of collec-
tion and disposal that is more pro-
tective of Florida's natural
resources and our agricultural
economy."
Proper disposal of pesticides
can be costly and a complicated
regulatory burden for small farm-
ers and other pesticide users.
Operation Cleansweep offers an
opportunity to avoid these formi-
dable barriers and promotes safe
and environmentally-sound pesti-
cide use, handling and disposal.
In addition to disposal of
unwanted pesticides, participants
in the program also receive edu-
cational material that includes tips
on purchasing pesticides; inven-
tory control; stock rotation; prop-
er labeling, storage, and handling;
and how to respond to leaks,
spills, and exposure incidents.
Funded by in-kind contributions
from public and private partners
and the Florida Legislature, the
program's goal is to collect and
dispose of unwanted pesticides as
well as prevent the need for future
Operation Cleansweep collec-
tions through proper storage,
labeling and pesticide purchasing.

DOE has new way to track teacher misconduct


TALLAHASSEE Department
of Education (DOE) Commissioner
Jeanine Blomberg announced that
beginning in the next school year,
parents will be able to search an
online database to see if any discipli-
nary action has been taken against
an educator's teaching certificate.-
The Web site is one of the new
resources in development by the
Department of Education to inform
parents, school administrators and
the general public about teacher cer-
tificate actions. Similar to other
licensed professionals like physi-
cians, accountants and pharmacists,
teachers are subject to action against
their certificate for wrongdoing.
"School districts can already
access disciplinary action against
a teacher at any time and parents


should have the same informa-
tion," said Commissioner
Blomberg. "The best way to pro-
tect students is through a trans-
parent system of information."
While the new Web site,
www.MyFloridaTeacher.com is
being developed, the Department
of Education has posted new
resources to its Web site,
www.fldoe.org/edstandards/.
These include a Frequently Asked
Questions section, school district
contact information and an expla-
nation about the role of the Depart-
ment of Education. All of these
resources will be available on the
new Web site this fall, as well as a
technical assistance section for
principals and school district staff.
This week, during the Florida


Association of School Personnel
Administrators spring conference,
K-12 Public Schools Deputy Chan-
cellor for Educator Quality Pamela
Stewart will provide training to dis-
trict school administrators about
new features on the state Bureau of
Educator Certification system. The
improved system makes final
orders and all state correspondence
available for districts to view and
download. Districts are encouraged
to regularly search the system to be
fully aware of any actions taken
against an educator's certificate. All
school districts were contacted
today regarding the new system.
As part of these enhancements,
the Department of Education will
require investigators to obtain
nationally-recognized certification,


convene an advisory council of
school personnel administrators to
assist in the development of tools
to aid districts, and increase the
quality and frequency of profes-
sional development for district-
and school-level staff regarding
teacher misconduct.
The Department of Education's
Bureau of Professional Practices
Services investigates alleged
wrongdoings by teachers in Florida
who hold a teaching certificate.
Penalties against a teacher's certifi-
cate are issued by the Education
Practices Commission. The Educa-
tion Practices Commission is a
quasi-judicial body of peers and lay
persons established in law who
determine what penalty should be
issued in the final orders.


Attorney General pushes for government accountability


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Bill McCollum announced
recently that his office has
launched the Government
Accountability Project (GAP) to
encourage state and local govern-
ment entities to provide Florida's
citizens more information and
records necessary to hold their gov-
ernment accountable. The project
was launched in partnership with
the University of Florida's Brechner
Center for Freedom of Information,
whose mission is to further
advance the understanding, appre-
ciation and support for freedom of
information and education.
"Florida is a national leader in
providing open government for
the public," said Attorney Gener-


al McCollum. "The GAP project
and partnership with the Univer-
sity of Florida's Brechner Center
aim to further advance accounta-
bility for Florida citizens. It is my
hope that this project will serve
as an example for other govern-
ment entities to follow."
Noting the advanced use of tech-
nology, Attorney General McCollum
stated government should capital-
ize on available technology to grant
public access to records and other
information. The project will devel-
op in two, phases. The first phase
will determine what discrepancies
exist between records already avail-
able and the information citizens
need but have difficulty obtaining;
the second phase will involve col-


laboration with state and local gov-
ernment entities to eliminate any
discrepancies uncovered. The proj-
ect will be showcased on a new
website designed to give Floridians
expedient access to public records
and is available through the Attor-
ney General's homepage. The new
Government Accountability Project
will be coordinated by Associate
Deputy Attorney General, Simone
Marstiller who brings extensive
experience in public service to the
project. Marstiller noted that ready
access to government records
should be a high priority for both
state and local government officials.
"The Brechner Center is'excited
to be partnering with Attorney Gen-
eral McCollum on this project," said


Sandra Chance, executive director
of the Brechner Center. "Improved
electronic access will make it much
easier for us to hold our govern-
ment officials accountable for their
decisions that affect our lives, our
families and our communities."
As a champion of Florida's open
government laws, Attorney Gener-
al McCollum reiterated his firm
belief in the principle that govern-
ment must be accountable to the
people of our state. In keeping with
his promise to safeguard the citi-
zens of Florida, the Attorney Gener-
al's Government Accountability
Project will protect the people's
constitutional right of access to
government. The website is avail-
able here.


Florida agriculture reports citrus reduced by millions


LAKELAND On March 9, the
U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) released its sixth crop fore-
cast for the 2006-07 season. The
USDA decreased the state's total
orange crop by 8 million boxes to
132 million. Early-mids were
reduced to 64.15 accounting for
7.35 million boxes of the decrease,
with navels making up the remain-
ing 650,000 box reduction to end


up at 2.85 million. Valencias
remained unchanged at 65 million.
The reduction in Early-mids is
based on the latest utilization fig-
ures. Results of a row-count survey
conducted on February 28 indicate
that harvest is nearly complete. The
survey also shows that while fruit
per tree has remained unchanged,
tree numbers may be decreasing at
a faster-than-anticipated rate.


The estimate for the state's
grapefruit crop was increased by
two million boxes to 28 million
boxes. Colored grapefruit account
for 1 million boxes of the crop, with
white grapefruit making up the
remaining 1 million.
The estimate for Honeys was
also increased 200,000 boxes to 2.4
million boxes, while early varieties
remained at 2.4 million boxes. Tan-


gelos increased 50,000 boxes to
1.25 million and the FCOJ yield was
increased from 1.61 to 1.62.
The Florida citrus industry has a
$9.1 billion economic impact to the
state, employs nearly 90,000 people
and covers more than 620,000 acres
in the state. Florida Citrus Mutual,
founded in 1948, is the state's largest
citrus grower's organization with
nearly 10,000 grower members.
