Committed. to the eradication


of neuromuscular diseases, the
International Association of Fire
Fighters (IAFF) is a longtime
friend and supporter of the Mus-

the-Boot drives are the primary
means by which the IAFF has
raised nearly $300 million for
MDA since 1954.
"Time and again, these lifesav-
ing heroes give so much of them-
selves for 'my kids,'" MDA Nation-
al Chairman Jerry Lewis said.
"They've made a tremendous dif-
"ference in the lives of so many, and
as they begin their 2007 cam-


paigns, I hope people will see their
tireless dedication and be moved
and inspired to do their part."
In 2006, fire fighters in Hillsbor-
ough and Polk Counties raised
over $185,000, one boot at a time.
Fill-The-Boot funds support
MDA's services locally and nation-
ally, including medical clinics
staffed with specialists in muscle
disease and accessible summer
camp for kids. Local clinics and
camps benefiting from Fill-the-
Boot funds include the two local
MDA clinics, St. Joe's Children's

Preparedness:
An everyday task
for everyday life

Being- prepared for emergen-
cies is crucial at home, school,
work and in your community.
Disaster can strike quickly
and without warning. It can
force you to evacuate your
neighborhood, workplace or
school or can confine you to
your home. What would you
do if basic services water,
gas, electricity or telephones -
were cut off?
Local officials and relief
workers will be on the scene
after a disaster, but they can-


not reach everyone right away.
The best way to make you and
your family safer is to be pre-
pared before disaster strikes.

The American Red Cross
encourages you to:
a.. Get a kit
b.. Make a plan
c.. Be informed
The Polk County Chapter of
the American Red Cross will be
giving a presentation on Disaster
Preparedness at the Latt Maxcy
Memorial Library, 15 N. Magno-
lia Avenue, in Frostproof on
Thursday, April 19, at 6:30 p.m.

So, what does it take to build a
positive credit history? Sullivan
describes what not to do:
Don't go on a spending
spree Just because you have the
credit, doesn't mean you should
spend it all. Your first credit card
should have a low limit, such as
$100 or $500. This will help pre-
vent large impulse buys. If you
know you're an impulse shopper,
you can further restrict tempta-
tion by applying for a store or gas
card, as opposed to a general
bank credit card that can be used
at almost any location.
Don't test your credit limits -
Make a small purchase to kick off
your credit history and then make
consistent payments. You don't
want to be caught in an emer-

On Saturday, April 14, 2007, the
Florida Sheriffs Ranches Youth Villa
for Girls, in Bartow, will open its
doors for their First Annual Open
House. This year marks a signifi-
cant milestone in the history of chil-
dren's charities, as the Florida Sher-
iffs Youth Ranches celebrates its 50
year anniversary.
The Youth Ranches was found-
ed in 1957 by two sheriffs who
wanted to provide a brighter and
more promising future to Florida's
at-risk children. Since then, the
Youth Ranches has reached thou-
sands of children and their families
through a broad range of services,
including residential, camp, and
community-based programs.
The Youth Villa in Bartow is one
of 4 residential sites operated by the
Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches. The
Villa provides a home for girls with


agency situation with a maxed out
credit card. If you withdraw over
your credit limit, you will be faced
with exorbitant fees. Plus, the
overdraw shows up on your cred-
it report, and that could prevent
you from receiving other forms of
credit at reasonable interest rates
in the future..
Don't share your credit infor-
mation No one should have
access to your credit information,
including close friends. Don't
leave your monthly bill in plain
sight, nor ask anyone to hold onto
your credit card. This could leave
you susceptible to fraud and iden-
tity theft.
Don't ignore the fine print -
You need to know exactly what
you are getting into before you
sign the contract. Financial jargon
can be confusing, so ask ques-
tions if you don't understand the
terminology. You will be held
accountable for all information
listed in the fine print, whether


structure, education, and tradition-
al family values. Girls from ages 8-
18 come to the Youth Villa from a
variety of backgrounds. Some have
been abandoned or abused, others
might be struggling academically
and socially. Each child entering the
program is encouraged to set goals
and strive for personal achieve-
ment. Community involvement,
including the Bartow Chamber of
Commerce's Annual Youth Villa
Classic Golf Tournament, has been
the key to success at the Villa.
If you would like to visit the
Youth Villa located just east of Bar-
tow on Highway 60, come out on
Saturday, April 14 from 11 am to
1:30 pm. The girls will be providing
tours of the campus and a barbe-
cue lunch will be served from 11:30
am until 12:30 pm. For more infor-
mation, call Joyce at 863-533-0371.

PCSO investigate


home invasion report


At approximately 5:18 am, Sat-
urday, April 7, 2007, Polk County
Sheriff's Office deputies responded
to 220 Aldo Road, Babson Park, in
reference to what was first reported
as a Home Invasion. Upon their
arrival, deputies immediately
began to interview several subjects
in and outside of that residence and
a second residence nearby.
A number of dogs were on the
property and one unleashed pit
bull charged a PCSO K-9 team to
include the deputy and K-9. Fear-
ing for their safety, a second
deputy took protective action
and shot and killed the attacking


pit bull. Deputies were not
injured in the confrontation.
PCSO Detectives were called to
assist in the investigation.
At this point, detectives are
classifying the incident as two res-
idential burglaries, to include 220
Aldo Road and 210 Aldo Road.
Detectives anticipate four or more
arrests in the case with narcotics
violations being a consideration
in the incident.
This is an ongoing investigation
and detectives remain on scene as
they continue to sort outthe details.

All it takes is one spark for thou-
sands of acres to go up in flames.
"The biggest problem in Okee-
chobee is with the 4-wheelers," said
Forest Ranger John Phillips. "They
either take the spark arrestor out to
get a little more horsepower, or they
don't care of them and the spark
arrestor doesn't work."
The ranger explained that the
spark arrestor is a screen that keeps
hot pieces of carbon from coming
out the back of the ATV. Without
the spark arrestor, large particles of
carbon at temperatures of 2000
degrees or higher can come out the
exhaust. These sparks are large
enough and hot enough to start a
brushfire.
Since Jan. 1, ATVs have caused
fires that burned a total of 781 acres
in Okeechobee County, according
to Department of Forestry records.
Most of the ATV fires are in the
area known as "The Prairie" or
Viking Properties.
Ranger Phillips said other off-
road vehicles, such as four wheel
drive trucks can also cause brush
fires. "Even gas powered cars can
start a fire. If the catalytic converter
is in bad shape, it can throw out
sparks," he said.
Another problem with ATVs is
,that drivers sometimes drive in the
fire areas while the firefighters are
trying to control the fires, he said.
When the Forestry equipment
plows a fire line in an attempt to
control a brush fire, ATV riders will


use the plow line as a road.
They often ride the ATVs across
the plow line and then back into
the brush. This can drag hot
embers back across the fire line
and start another brush fire, the
ranger explained.
"The people on ATVs need to
stay way from the fires," Ranger
Phillips said. "When we're in there,
let us put it out. Stay away until it's
done smoking." He said it can take
two days or longer for a brush fire
to stop smoking. As long as it is
smoking, there is still a danger that
the fire can start back up, or that
embers carried from the smoking
area to an area of dry brush can
start another fire.
He added that ATV riders should
take away from brush fires for their
own safety. When Division of
Forestry officers are fighting a fire,
visibility is often very limited. A trac-
tor driver might not be able to see
past a tall stand of palmettos he is
plowing through to make a fire
break. If someone on an ATV is on
the other side of the brush, the trac-
tor could hit the ATV, he explained.
The DOF is conducting a Fire
Weather Education Campaign this
week in order to educate people
about the effect weather can have
on fire behavior. At the heart of the
campaign will be a contest where
newspaper readers are eligible to
win a Fire Danger Weather Kit. Par-
ticipants become eligible to win by
correctly answering questions pro-
vided by the DOF each day.
