Cyber Hawk leads to arrests

On Sunday, April 1, 2007, a
total of 28 adults were arrested
and charged with soliciting sex
from a child. Operation Cyber
Hawk, an undercover operation
led by the Polk County Sheriff's
Office The week-long operation
included detectives, officers,
and special agents from the
Internet Crimes Against Children
Task Force, the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement,
Immigration and Customs
Enforcement or ICE, Plant City
Police Department, Rocky
Mount Police Department North
Carolina, Nash County Sheriff's

Office, North Carolina and
members of the State Attorney's
Office along with Attorney Gen-
eral Bill McCollum's Office of
Statewide Prosecution.
The multi-agency effort,
directed by PCSO detectives, will
enhance prosecution extending
across several jurisdictions, and
is an alliance that demonstrates
law enforcement's continuous
commitment to fighting Internet
crimes against children. Internet
Crimes Detectives used chat
rooms and instant messaging to
direct suspects to the location.
National statistics indicate

that one in seven children receive
an online sexual solicitation, one
in 11 has received an aggressive
online sexual solicitation and
one in three has been exposed to
unwanted sexual images online.
The shocking fact is that only
10% of those solicitations were
reported to authorities.
The suspects traveled to an
undercover location with the
intention of having sex with a
child. Detectives met them

his commitment to protecting

cal well-being. "These deviants
came to the undercover location.
to have sex with a child. We
stopped them," said Sheriff
Judd. "I don't know any other
way to say this; we will not toler-
ate anyone preying on our chil-
dren. We will not allow these
criminals' behaviors to escalate
to kidnapping or murder."
Sheriff Judd expressed his
appreciation to all the agencies
that assisted with Operation
Cyber Hawk and encouraged all
law enforcement agencies
around the nation to join in
cooperation in an aggressive

fight against Child Exploitation
via the Internet.
Those arrested either lived or
were staying in cities around
Florida and traveled to Polk
County to the undercover loca-
tion with the purpose of having
sex with a child. Their ages and
occupations were varied. One
individual stopped and asked a
uniformed deputy for directions
to the undercover location.

District School superintendents to fight cybercrime

General Bill McCollum and Bill
Montford, Chief Executive Officer
of the Florida Association of Dis-
trict School Superintendents, has
announced a new partnership to
address the threat of cybercrime
against children. Attorney General
McCollum and the superintend-
ents will be building a coopera-
tive approach to reach students
and parents throughout the state
to educate them on safe practices
of internet use.
"Internet predators are able
infiltrate our homes and exploit

our children through our home
computers with one click of a but-
ton," said Attorney General
McCollum. "Working with the
Superintendents Association, we
will create a coordinated
statewide effort in order to give
children the skills needed to be
safer while online."
Speaking at the Association's
2007 Leadership Conference
recently, Attorney General McCol-
lum noted that as technology
advances, so do new threats to
Florida's children. As a result, he
encouraged, his audience to be

diligently aware of the online dan-
gers confronting students and
families. He stressed to the super-
intendents that the internet has
become the weapon of choice for
people who prey on children
because it is easy for them to gain
access to their victims while
remaining faceless.
"I am excited about the oppor-
tunity to work with the Attorney
General as we develop this pro-
gram to target safe internet use by
our students throughout the
state," said Bill Montford, Chief
Executive Officer of the Florida

Association of District School
Superintendents. "The threat of
internet predators is very real and
dangerous and I am pleased that
Attorney General McCollum has
made protecting our children his
top priority."
The Federal No Child Left
Behind Act of 2002 mandates that
school children receive education
about cyber-safety. The new
efforts by the Attorney General's
Office and the superintendents
will focus on expanding this edu-
cation to address new technology
and risks associated with internet

use. When the program is com-
plete it will also include an out-
reach component to parents in an
effort to increase their knowledge
of internet-related threats to their
Today, approximately 77 mil-
lion children use the internet
daily, and one in seven children in
America between the ages of ten
and 17 are sexually solicited
online. According to a Federal
task force on internet crimes
against children, Florida ranks
fourth in the nation for the vol-
ume of child pornography. To

combat the growing cybercrime
problem facing the state, Attorney
General McCollum stressed the
importance of empowering stu-
dents, teachers and parents
through the multi-faceted educa-
tional outreach.
More information about the
Attorney General's efforts to
combat cybercrime, including
legislation that will increase
penalties for computer-facilitated
crimes against children, is avail-

Don't give into your fear of decorating

Did you ever glance at those
well lit pictures in a magazine
and wish for a room that looked
as inviting as the images in their
pages. We want the "feel of those
pictures but we have no clue
where to start to accomplish it.
Don't feel bad, because I can
help you get started on your
dream home and it can be done
in babysteps.
Our biggest problem is that
we don't know where to start!
We see the beautifully put
together rooms and we get over-
whelmed. Then we put the mag-
azine down and give up before
we ever get started.
I was scared to death to
remodel our home. When Robert,
and I married ten years ago; I had
a houseful of clutter and so did
he. We put our clutter together
and then went to estate auctions
to buy more. We called ourselves
upgrading the furniture that \%e
already had. Oh. we got some,
great deals but it is so hard to see
what you have when your home
is filled with clutter.
It was only when we started to
get rid of our clutter that we could
selectively know what we needed

Flylady 3

to purchase. It took us about nine
months to slowly eliminate our
clutter. I like to think of it as giving
birth to a new me. As the clutter
disappeared I could see in my
mind's eye what I wanted for our
home and not the piles of stuff
that clouded my vision. I began to
feel the peace that I had always
searched for and it was hiding
underneath my hot spots.
Slowly our home became clut-
ter free and peaceful. It still was
not decorated as those pictures in
the magazines, but it hugged us
when we walked in the door.
Even with the green shag carpet
from the seventies our home was
inviting and my routines were
helping me to keep our home
company ready just for us. This

was a blessing but it also created
another level of fear in me.
With the clutter gone we could
see that our home needed updat-
ing. Every room in our home
needed help. We could actually
see the forest for the first time. We
looked closely at each room. I
took a note pad and put on a dif-
ferent set of eyes to examine our
home. Just imagine that you are a
real estate agent and you are
going to help your client get their
home ready to sell. Grab a clip-
board and your pen. I am going to
walk you though your home.
We started with our one butt
kitchen and our coppertone
appliances. I began to jot down
everything that I felt made our
home outdated. Then we looked
at the outside of our home, our
bathrooms, living room, bed-
rooms and back deck. We exam-
ined our heating unit and our
side porch.
Then we went to dinner to dis-
cuss what to do first. This was so
frightening to me. I was afraid of
allowing the clutter and CHAOS to
invade our home again. Once I
realized that I could do this by tak-
ing babysteps and by taking care

of me during this process; I was
willing to take the next step.
You can do this too with your
routines in place to guide you and
by flinging your clutter so that you
have a clean palette to start with.
You will be surprised at how
much better your home will feel
when you love yourself enough to
take babysteps. I will be telling
you more about this in the future.
Many people have this same
problem and we want to help you
all have the confidence to make
your home feel comfortable.
The best compliment I have
ever received is that our home
looks just like us. This is because
we only have things in our home
that make us smile. Are you ready
to FLY into building your dream
home one babystep at a time?

your CHAOS; check out her Web

Wildflowers featured

at flower festival

Florida wildflowers will be fea-
tured during the world-renown
International Flower Festival at
Epcot in Orlando from April 5
through June 3, Florida Agricul-
ture Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced recently.
Florida Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Ser-
vices, in partnership with the
Florida Wildflower Seed and
Plant Growers Association, is
hosting a pavilion that will
showcase native wildflowers
that are seen throughout Flori-
da along roadsides and in
meadows, natural areas and
other non-cultivated sites. A
Kids' Corner activity area will
enable children to learn how to
identify various Florida'Wild-
flowers and see how seeds are
grown, harvested and cleaned.
"This festival has a reputa-
tion for featuring some of the
most beautiful flowers from
around the world and is a per-
fect place to showcase Florida's

wildflower industry," Mr. Bron-
son said. "Many residents and
visitors see the beautiful native
wildflowers throughout our
state, but don't know the story
behind them. This will be a
great opportunity to learn
about this young but growing
segment of Florida's agricultur-
al industry."
Growers in Florida are pro-
ducing seed of native herba-
ceous annual and perennial
wildflowers. Not only are these
wildflowers native, but they are
derived from naturally occur-
ring populations in Florida.
"Wildflower seed produc-
tion is ideal for those that
already produce other types of
crops," Mr. Bronson said. "In
many cases, existing equip-
ment and "tfalities -can be
adapted for wildflower seed

Learn what to look for when you set out to purchase fresh produce

A lot of the questions I get
asked frequently have to do with
fresh produce. Not just how to
buy it, but how to store it and
maximize the life of it. When
you're trying to be mindful of your
money and making sure every-
thing gets used up, this is an
important question. We've all
been guilty of opening the pro-
duce drawer of our fridges to find
a green slimy thing in a plastic bag
that used to be a head of lettuce.
To battle the slime fest in your
fridge, you need to know what to
buy that you can store for a longer
period of time, what to buy spar-
ingly and what to look for.
The first thing you need to
know is what to look for when
purchasing produce. Obviously,
the more unblemished and the
fresher your produce, the longer

it will last. Wilting, discolorations,
spots and a dried-out end will sig-
nal to you that that particular pro-
duce selection is well past its
prime and won't last long. You
want heavy melons, hard apples
and fresh smelling green vegeta-
bles. If it smells fresh, it is. If it
doesn't, steer clear.
Marked down produce,
unless used right away, is usually

not a good purchase. The excep-
tion being overly ripe bananas
- I buy them whenever I can,
peel them, freeze them and use
them for smoothies, but you can
use them for banana bread and
other things, too.
Potatoes, onions and garlic
can all be stored for about a
month. They need to be stored
in a cool place (not the fridge),
and not together (when stored
together, they produce gasses
that spoil both). I have two bins
in my pantry, one for onions and
one for potatoes, that keep my
produce friends cool and com-
fortable and keeps them from
sprouting, too.
In the refrigerated section,
carrots and celery will last a
good two weeks (take the tops
off of carrots to extend their life

otherwise the end; the plant part
of the carrot, will continue to
grow and sap the root part; the
part you eat, causing the carrot
to wither and dry out). While
different fruits like oranges,
grapefruits, lemons, limes,
apples and some grapes all can
be stored safely for two weeks,
maybe even three weeks. Again,
the trick is bringing home very
fresh produce.
Broccoli and cauliflower will
easily last the week in your
fridge. The stuff that is tricky is
the fresh greens lettuces and
spinach especially. These need
to be used up within the week.
The way to keep them from
going bad is to plan to have the
more perishable veggies for din-
ner as soon as you can after you
purchase them. So you'll have a

lovely big green salad for dinner
the day after you've grocery
shopped, a nice spinach salad a
day later and by the time the end
of the week comes 'round, you'll
be down to carrots or scroung-
ing the freezer for frozen green
beans. That's okay you
haven't wasted a thing; you
should be proud!
To maximize the life of your
produce, make sure they are
kept in the produce drawers of
the refrigerator (there is better
humidity in there than the rest of
your fridge), get the air out of the
bags they're in as best you can,
and check the temperature of
your drawers they should be
right at about 40 degrees.
And remember, don't refriger-
ate tomatoes they will contin-
ue to ripen if they're left out and

will taste better. Hard squashes
such as butternut and acorn
squash and sweet potatoes also
don't need refrigeration, but will
fair well in the pantry with your
onions and potatoes.
Fresh produce can be both a
healthy choice and a budget
saver when bought in season
(seasonal produce is cheaper)
and in the right quantities. Just
remember that a bargain isn't a
bargain if it rots in your fridge!

Arrest made in state-wide housing scam

Freshwater fishing is free April 7-8

Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced the
arrest of a Bunnell, Florida man
for defrauding at least 11 Florida
residents out of thousands of dol-
lars in a low income home build-
ing assistance scam.
Todd M. Findley, 42, has been
charged with three counts of grand
theft and one count of organized
scheme to defraud, all third degree
felonies, following a two year inves-
tigation by the Department's Office
of Agricultural Law Enforcement.
The investigation originated with
four complaints received through
the Division of Consumer Services'
consumer helpline against Find-
ley's business, European American
Heritage Foundation. As the investi-
gation continued, officers uncov-
ered seven more victims.
Investigators say Findley offered
$ to help low income families get a

decent home that they would help
to build. Findley took $2,500 from
families as a down payment. He
told them they would be required
to work at least 500 hours on other
foundation homes to become a
partner in the program and then
their home would be built with.the
help of the other families.
At least 11 families signed con-
tracts and gave Findley a total of
$27,500 but no homes have been
built. Investigators with Agricul-
tural Law Enforcement say Find-
ley made ongoing excuses as to
why the homes weren't being
built and did not give the victims
an opportunity to fulfill the agree-
ment they signed.
"It is outrageous that these
families pinned their hope of the
American dream on this suspect,"
Mr. Bronson said. "Not only did
they not get their homes built,
these families who least can
afford it were taken for thousands

of dollars. I hope this arrest sends
a message to scam artists that our
Agricultural Law Enforcement
officers will aggressively investi-
gate and take action against those
who would harm our most vul-
nerable citizens."
Findley has been booked into
the Flagler County jail. The eleven
victims are from throughout the
state, including Miami, West Palm
Beach, New Port Richey and Palm
Coast. Mr. Bronson said he
believes there may be additional
victims of the scam as the investi-
gation is continuing.
The Commissioner is urging
anyone who thinks they may have
been victimized by Findley to call
his Office of Agricultural Law
Enforcement at 1-800-342-5869.
Mr. Bronson credited the Fla-
gler County Sheriff's Department
and Flagler County State Attor-
ney's Office for its assistance in
the investigation.

Here's a freebie for anyone
fishing in Florida's freshwaters
April 7 and 8: you don't need a
fishing license. It's free fishing
during the first full weekend in
April in the state's freshwaters.
"Free fishing days means you
don't need a license to fish in
freshwater lakes and rivers dur-
ing this special weekend," said
Sam McKinney, regional fresh-
water fisheries biological
administrator for the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Northeast
Anglers fishing in saltwater

will still need a license.
To help promote the enjoy-
ment of freshwater fishing and
give anglers the chance to take
advantage of the peak fishing
season, the FWC moved free
fishing weekend several years
ago from the first week of June,
which is National Fishing Week,
to the first weekend in April.
"We hope that fishing for
free will remind those anglers
who haven't fished in awhile
how fun and relaxing a day of
fishing can be," McKinney said.
To encourage families to go
fishing, the FWC and local part-

ners are hosting a free event in
