New Toll-Free number

Governor's Office
launches new
phone number

spirit of Florida Governor Charlie
Crist's Office of Open Govern-
ment and Plain Language Initia-
tive, the Agency for Persons with
Disabilities has secured a toll-free
phone number to better serve
Florida citizens.
The agency's new phone num-
ber is 1-866-APD-CARES or 1-866-
273-2273. It will be manned Mon-
day through Friday from 8 a.m.
until 5 p.m. (EDT). The phone
operators will answer questions
directly. For more complex ques-
tions, however, the caller will be
transferred to the best person to
respond in a timely manner. The
goal is to answer a citizen's ques-
tion quickly and accurately while
not making the citizen incur long
distance phone charges.
"Toll-free telephone service
will make the Agency for Persons
with Disabilities more open and
accessible to the people of Flori-
da," said Governor Crist. "I am
pleased with the work the agency
is doing to better assist and serve
the people of Florida."
Interim Agency Director Ray
said, "The Agency for Persons
with Disabilities is continually
looking for ways to improve the

relationship with our customers.
Providing a toll-free phone num-
ber is long overdue. We want our
services to the public to be trans-
parent and we want to resolve
questions as quickly as possible.
We think having a mechanism
in place to encourage dialogue
and feedback is a good idea."
The agency currently serves
more than 35,000 Floridians with
the developmental disabilities of
mental retardation, autism, cere-
bral palsy, spina bifida, and Prad-
er-Willi syndrome. Of those citi-
zens, 25,360 are currently
enrolled in the Developmental
Disabilities Home and Communi-
ty-Based Service waiver. There
are 6,092 people on the Family
and Supported Living waiver and
over 13,000 waiting for waiver
services due to state funding lim-

ever central Florida's dry winter
and leftover dead brush from active
hurricane seasons has left the
region especially prone to wildfire.
Florida is prone to wild fires,
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 every person to follow
all fire safety precautions, indoors
or outdoors, and to make and prac-
tice a family fire escape plan, espe-
cially from wildfire.
For more information on how to
protect yourself from a wildfire or a
house fire, contact your local Ameri-
can Red Cross Polk County Chapter

cross.org for a list of American Red
Cross wildfire safety tips.
All American Red Cross disaster
assistance is free, made possible by
voluntary donations of time and
money from the American people.
You can help the victims of thou-
sands of disasters across the coun-
try each year, disasters like the tor-
nados in Central Florida, by making
a financial gift to the American Red
Cross Disaster Relief Fund, which
enables the Red Cross to provide
shelter, food, counseling and other
assistance to victims of disaster.
The American Red Cross honors
donor intent. If you wish to desig-
nate your donation to a specific dis-
aster please do so at the time of

Community invited to become 'Dottie's Donors'

Red Cross celebrates
90 years in Highlands

The first charter issued for a Red
Cross Chapter in Highlands County
dates back to 1917 90 years ago
this year. That makes Highlands
County one of the nation's oldest
local Red Cross presence. To cele-
brate that anniversary and to
ensure the Red Cross stays in High-
lands County another ninety years,
a new campaign to raise the
group's profile has begun.
Dottlie Pope, a member of the
Red ICross for many years, served as
both a day-to-day office staff and as
a Disaster Services volunteer until
2004. when she passed away in the
middle of that year's taxing hurri-
cane season. Since then, the High-
lands County Service Center has
- established "Dottie's Donors," also
known as "Dottie's List," to honor
andt father Red Cross supporters.

"Dottie was one of the people who were the
lifeblood of our volunteer force. It's fitting that
she be memorialized by a program dedicated
to the long-term survival of the Red Cross in
Highlands County."
Art Harriman,
Director of the American Red Cross
Highlands County Service Center

"Dottie was one of the people
who were the lifeblood of our vol-
unteer force," said Art Harriman,
Director of the American Red Cross
Highlands County Service Center.
"It's fitting that she be memorial-
ized by a program dedicated to the
long-term survival of the Red Cross
in Highlands County."
'Dottie's List' will consist of busi-
nesses and individuals who make
pledges, starting at $125 per quar-
ter, to support Highlands County

Red Cross operations. The timing
couldn't be better, said Harriman.
"After the 2004 hurricanes, Red
Cross was at the top of peoples'
minds, and support for both our
operation here and nationally was
strong," Harriman said. "The com-
bination of the 2005 weather disas-
ters like Hurricane Katrina and a
very quiet 2006 season changed
that. People supported national
efforts in the Gulf Coast very well,
but locally we dropped off many

radar screens."
Over the last year, donations to
many Red Cross local chapters
have dropped significantly, in many
cases by almost half. That's a prob-
lem anywhere, but in Highlands
County, smaller numbers leave less
room for error.
Meanwhile, the county has had
a very busy season of home fires
and wildfires, supporting both the
victims and emergency personnel
at each incident.
Please help support your local
Red Cross by volunteering time,
energy, and funds to help provide
for people in your community
who are victims of large natural
disasters or small single-family
ones, like home fires. Helping the
Red Cross will ensure the Red
Cross can help you.

Chamber hosts benefit with benefits

Out in the middle of nowhere it
is easy to hear the wind in the
pines, the call of the hawk, a hoot
owl waking up. There are no grind-
ing gears of garbage trucks, no wail
'f emergency vehicles running,
i st tie sounds of nature and a few
friendly voices. That is the side ben-
efit for ticket purchasers who come
a little early to Florida Flywheeler's

Village for the Frostproof Area
Chamber of Commerce's annual
fund raiser, April Fun Nite.
A slow driving tour through the
village, or a nice walk for those
who would care to, will be the first
thing on the late afternoon, early
evening agenda. Before turning in
tickets, vendors will have displays
to peruse. Soft, mellow sounds of

Claude Vance and the River Sage
will drift through the air, while*
steaks sizzle on the grille and folks
all slow down a bit to socialize with
friends in the barn.
An excellent dinner prepared by
Chef Jerrold Kuchinskas will be
enjoyed and many door prizes col-
lected. A Silent Auction held, Tom
Freeman's freshly painted work

auctioned, and there will be
demonstrations by Art League
members and more.
The question is, will you be
there on Saturday, April 14? Will
you win the great grand prize? Call
635-9008 or 635-2593 or 635-9112
for more information. Tickets sales
are limited, sold on a first come,
first served basis.

lowing locations:

Residents warned of phony telephone scam

Polk County residents should
beware of a telephone scam that
involves someone calling and
saying he or she is conducting a
test for a phone company. The
scam can bill your telephone
number for long distance calls

you didn't make.
This is how the scam works:
A person will call your home
or cell phone and identify him-
self as a service technician for
AT&T, Verizon or another phone
carrier needing to conduct a test

on your telephone line.
The caller will ask you to dial
the numbers 9 and 0 and the
pound (#) sign and then hang
He may also ask you to push
the numbers 7 and 2 and the

pound sign.
If the procedures are fol-
lowed, the caller will have access
to your phone line, enabling him
to place long distance phone
calls that will be billed to your
telephone number.

PCC receives huge donation from Clear Springs

Clear Springs donates $12 mil-
lion and parcel of land in Bartow to
PCC for Advanced Manufacturing
and Technology Center.
Clear Springs has committed
to donate $12 million and a parcel
of land in Bartow to the Polk
Community College Foundation.
The funds, to be matched by the
state, will be used to build an
Advanced Manufacturing and
Technology Center that will serve
as a permanent home for PCC's
Corporate College, which is a key
provider of training for business
and industry in Polk County.
The generous donation was
formalized in a letter of commit-

ment signed by Stan Phelps,
Chairman of Clear Springs, and
presented to PCC President Eileen
Holden on March 8. Clear Springs
sits on a total of 18,000 acres of
land with approximately 11,000 of
those acres in the City of Bartow.
The PCC Corporate College will
be located in Bartow.
"We are extremely grateful and
excited to receive this generous
donation," said Dr. Hoiden. "It is a
wonderful example of a public/pri-
vate partnership that will benefit
the entire community."
According to Clear Springs Pres-
ident Jura Christine Zibas, "This
partnership will provide a 2 lst-cen-

tury education and training facility
designed to retain and recruit busi-
nesses to our community. We are
proud to have PCC's Corporate
College and the Advanced Manu-
facturing and Technology Center as
a core part of the overall plan for.
our property. We are working with
additional colleges and universities
to further expand the manufactur-
ing technology and training oppor-
tunities as well as speaking with
companies about the opportunities
available in Polk County."
PCC's Corporate College, cre-
ated in 2002 in response to the
needs of the county business
community, delivers industry-spe-

cific training. Since its inception,
the Corporate College has trained
thousands of Polk County workers
with standard and customized
training programs focusing on:
safety, security, manufacturing,
supervision, advanced leadership,

Foursome tees up charity golf

challenge for second year in a row

Last year, four
golfers played 100
holes in a single day
and raised $30,000
on behalf of Winter
Haven Hospital's
nationally accredited
Stroke Center. This
year, the foursome
has set its sights
even higher.

Pictured above are, Joe Jensen, Pete Cassidy, Dwain Hughes, and Randy Clark.

WINTER HAVEN, FL Four golfers who teed up a
major contribution to Winter Haven Hospital's
nationally accredited Stroke Center in 2006 are ready to
hit the links again in a new golf marathon. The group is
challenging businesses, friends and family members to
sponsor their efforts with the goal of raising $50,000 for
the Stroke Center.

The four Winter Haven residents Pete Cassidy, Dwain
Hughes, Joe Jensen and Randy Clark plan to start at
dawn at the Lake Region Country Club on May 3 and
play until the sun goes down. Pledges of support for the
foursome will be contributed to the support of the Stroke
Center. In 2006, not-for-profit Winter Haven Hospital's
Stroke Center was designated by the Joint Commission
on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO)
as a Primary Stroke Care Center, making the Hospital
the only Primary Stroke Care Center serving Polk,
Highlands and Hardee counties.

"'The Los Angeles Rams had the 'Fearsome Foursome' in
the 1960s. This is Winter Haven's modem version of the

Fearsome Foursome." said Don Ingram, chairman of
the Mid-Florida Medical Services Foundation Board of

"These guys literally are putting their bodies 'on the line'
for the Hospital and for patients of the Stroke Center,"
Ingram said. "Eighteen holes of golf in a day is enough
for most people and 36 holes is typically something you
hear about professionals playing. Our Fearsome
Foursome is going way beyond that."

Pete Cassidy, who spearheaded the marathon in 2006,
said: "My mother, Kathleen, experienced a stroke
before she passed away, and so my brothers and I know
first-hand how it affects not just the patient, but the
family as well. We're convinced that having a world-
class Stroke Center is vital to our community's health
and we want to do whatever we can to help make that

Lance Anastasio, president and CEO of Winter Haven
Hospital, said: "This is one of the most unique and

inventive group of supporters that the Hospital has had
in its 81 -year history. On behalf of both the medical and
professional staff at Winter Haven Hospital, we are both
amazed and grateful for this outstanding expression of

Joel Thomas, executive director of the Mid-Florida
Medical Services Foundation, the fund-raising
organization for Winter Hospital, noted that Pete
Cassidy's brother Steve is a new Foundation Trustee and
his brother, Al Cassidy, is a hospital board member.
Thomas also noted Mr. Clark's company, Bright House
Networks, is a major corporate friend of the Foundation
as well. Dwain Hughes, owner of Hughes Corporate
Printing, is a long-time supporter of Foundation efforts,
as is Joe Jensen, owner of Reni Publishing and the
Nissen Group Advertising Agency.

Joining the group this year will be teams from Mary
Myers Realty and Condev Homes. Additional teams are
being rounded up as well.

"These four men and the teams joining them are
challenging both themselves and the community in
support of the Hospital and its mission of providing
state-of-the-art health care in east Polk County. It's a
one-of-a-kind statement about the role the Hospital
plays in the life of our community and we're thankful for
their support of our patients," Thomas said.

'Sun 'n Fun' gears up for week-long festivities

LAKELAND, Fla. Every
April, tens of thousands of avia-
tion enthusiasts "take off" to
Lakeland, Florida, for the annual
Sun 'n Fun Fly-In. Sun 'n Fun is a
week-long aviation extravaganza
that is the second largest aviation
event of its type in theworld.
This year's Sun 'n Fun Fly-In
will be held April 17-23 at Lake-
land Linder Regional Airport. Its
2007 theme "Living the Dream"
- will be featured throughout the
Fly-In's various programs and
events. They include a daily air
show featuring the world's pre-
mier aerobatic performers; more
than 500 commercial exhibitors;
a Friday night air show that con-
cludes with a spectacular fire-
works display; other evening
programs and entertainment;
admission to the Florida Air
Museum Florida's "official avia-
tion museum and education cen-
ter"; kids activities; and nearly
450 educational forums, semi-
nars and workshops led by rec-
ognized experts in a variety of
aviation-related fields.
Sun 'n Fun is recognized as the
largest festival in the state of Flori-
da, generating more that 35,000

hotel room nights and creating an
economic impact in Polk County
of nearly $30 million.
As in years past, education is
the core around which all other
activities are built. Sun 'n Fun's
educational forums and hands-
on workshops offer pilots, air-
craft owners and future aviators
an opportunity to learn critically
important information on the
basics of aircraft design, con-
struction, maintenance and
"Education is the hub around
which the Sun 'n Fun Fly-in is
built," said Sun 'n Fun President
and Fly-In Chairman John Bur-
ton. "The enthusiastic exchange
of information between
exhibitors, participants and air-
craft owners plus the educa-
tional activities offered by the
Federal Aviation Administration
through their year-round facility
here on the Sun 'n Fun campus -
combine to create an unsur-
passed aviation experience."
This year, three big events will
combine to make 2007 the best
year ever.
First, Sun 'n Fun has opened
the flightline (where all the air-

planes are parked) to all Fly-In
guests. Previously, the flightline
area was restricted to pilots or
members of the Florida Air Muse-
um (FAM) or the Experimental
Aircraft Association (EAA).
Second, Florida residents and
active duty military will be
admitted to the Fly-In for half
price on Saturday, April 21, and
Sunday, April 22.
Third, country music star
Aaron Tippin will perform in con-
cert Saturday, April 21 at 7 p.m.
"All three of these will com-
bine to introduce our guests -
especially those from Lakeland
and Polk County an unforget-
table and affordable aviation
experience," said John Burton,
Sun 'n Fun's President and Con-
vention Chairman. "That is part
of our mission: to introduce peo-
ple of all ages to aviation and we
believe our new Flightline policy
will help accomplish that. We
invite all of our guests to experi-
ence firsthand the amazing air-
craft on display that span virtual-
ly every chapter of aviation
history. The discounted week-
end admission rate makes it
more affordable than ever. And

the Aaron Tippin concert
appeals to people of all ages and
interests. When you combine all
this with everything else Sun 'n
Fun offers throughout the week
of the Fly-In, you won't want to
miss being part of all the action."
The airshow performer lineup
includes aerobatic performers
such as the AeroShell team, Red
Barons Pizza squadron, Patty
Wagstaff, John Mohr, Bill Stein,
and many more, who will dazzle
guests during the daily airshow
that begins at 2 p.m. An addition-
al show on Friday night begin-
ning at dusk features incredible
pyrotechnics routines, and will
be followed by fireworks to
round out the evening. In addi-
tion, anticipated weekend per-
formances by military jet-teams
demonstrating the A-10

"Warthog" and F-18 Super Hor-
net will impress even the most
experienced Sun 'n Fun atten-
dees. Military static display air-
craft includes: F-16's, a KC-135, C-
130H, T-45's, A-10's, and the
National Oceanic & Atmospheric
Administration's (NOAA) AC
Shrike Commander as well as a
scheduled fly-by by both the B-1B
and the B-2 "Stealth" bombers.
Approximately 160,000 peo-
ple participate in the seven-day
event, which traditionally her-
.alds the start of the aviation year.
Sun 'n Fun, a 501(c)(3)
not-for-profit organization
based in Lakeland, Florida, is
best known for its annual Fly-In
held each April. The Fly-In is the
primary source of funding for
Sun 'n Fun's expanding
year-round aviation education

programs. These include opera-
tion of the Florida Air Museum,
the state's "Official Aviation
Museum and Education Center,"
which is also supported through
grants from the Division of His-
torical Resources and Division of
Cultural Affairs, Florida Depart-
ment of State. In addition, Sun 'n
Fun has initiated education pro-
grams for aviation enthusiasts of
all ages especially young peo-
ple featuring valuable "hands
on" learning experiences. A
growing scholarship program
provides financial support to
ensure Sun 'n Fun's education
programs are accessible to all.

Sun 'n Fun's website (www.sun-
n-fun.org) or call the Sun 'n Fun
offices (863-644-2431).
