Senator Alexander honored


New Facility will be
named the J.D.
Alexander Center

Polk Community College
President Eileen Holden
announced at the Lake Wales
groundbreaking ceremonies
held May 14 that the building
will be named the J.D. Alexan-
der Center after State Senator
Alexander, who spearheaded
the drive in the legislature to
fund the $3.6 million renovation
of the former Lake Wales City
Hall.
The building opened in 1928
and served as the Lake Wales


City Hall until 1998. It was
severely damaged by the 2004
hurricanes. Following those
storms, several community,
education, and governmental
leaders developed a plan to turn
the building over to PCC and
convert it into a modern aca-
demic center serving southeast
Polk County. A partnership was
forged between PCC, the City of
Lake Wales, the Lake Wales
Charter Schools, and others in
the community.
During the 18-month long
renovation, the structure will be
outfitted with five general edu-
cation classrooms, a large com-
puter classroom, and a first
floor classroom/meeting room


that will be available for com-
munity use.
PCC anticipates that the new
facility will have a substantial
impact on the local economy
starting with an estimated $1.1
million in construction spend-
ing that will occur during the
renovation.
Among those participating in
the groundbreaking, held in a
large tent setup in front of the
building, were: State Senator
J.D. Alexander, PCC student
Jerry Lewis, Rev. James Cleare,
Pastor of Allen Temple AME
Church, Lake Wales Mayor Alex
Wheeler, Lake Wales City Man-
ager Tony Otte, and PCC Presi-
dent Eileen Holden.

PC SO begins training Letters to the Editor


Army Reserve Team


In January 2007, the Polk Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office was asked to
assist the Department of the Army,
317th Military Police Battalion in
Tampa, by training their Army
Reserve Special Reaction Team in
basic SWAT, techniques. This
advanced SWAT training was held
at Camp Blanding, Jacksonville, in
February2007.
The US Army Reserve Com-
mand Staff was so impressed with
the PCSO Special Weapons And
Tactics, or SWAT, Team, and the
instruction that was provided in
February 2007, Army commanders
have asked to continue a partner-
ship with additional training to be
held in July and September.
The Army's Special Reaction
Teams, or SRT, will be used in a
similar capacity as law enforce-
ment through techniques such as,
but not limited to, marksmanship,
barricaded incidents, drug enforce-
ment raids and high risk suspect
apprehensions.


In a memo forwarded to Sheriff
Grady Judd, LTC MP Commander
Milton S. Busby said that SRT, "will
increase the unit's ability to respond
to dangerous high-risk incidents
that require tactical operational
skills which goes beyond those
obtained by Military Police Officers
in Advance Individual Training."
Sheriff Grady Judd was pleased
to learn of the Army Reserve's inter-
est. "We are proud to be a part of
the Army Reserve's elite training
program. Our commitment is to
provide our very best professional
training for these outstanding mili-
tary heroes," said Sheriff Judd.
Sheriff's Office SWAT instruc-
tors will provide the training to the
317th Battalion before they are
deployed to Iraq. The instruction
will take place on the PCSO Burn-
ham McCall Training center July 9
through July 20,2007.
Additional training will be pro-
vided during September 10
through September 21,2007.


In Appreciation,
We would like to take this
opportunity to thank each and
everyone that has helped our
family during the past few
months. There were a number of
people who helped with the ben-
efit gospel sing and benefit dinner
to whom we would like to
express our thanks. The support
of this community has been awe-
inspiring and it makes us proud to


be from Frostproof. Mere words
cannot express our gratitude and
appreciation. Our daughter has
been home for three weeks now
and is doing well. Her treatments
are still ongoing with continual
clinic visits in Tampa for evalua-
tion and transfusions. Your
prayers are appreciated and may
God bless each and everyone for
your continued support.
Sincerely,
The Brianna Harper Family


Dear Editor:
My manufactured home in the
Sterling Mobile Home Park was
one of the homes improved
under the Manufactured Housing
and Mobile Home Mitigation and
Enhancement Program last year.
Over 90% of our park participated
in this program and has benefited
from having their homes strength-
ened and made storm ready. I am
glad to have read that this pro-


gram is continued for next year
and that its funding has increased
thanks to Senator JD Alexander.
This program is vital and helps
thousands of mobile home resi-
dents improve their homes a
comfort we now know first hand.
Thank you, Senator Alexander, for
helping us make this funding a
reality for more of our neighbors.
Thankyou,
George Goodenough


Floridians beware when smoke is in the air


Lately the air in South Florida
has been noticeably smokey due
to wildfires burning as far away as
the state of Georgia. There are
many steps you can take to pro-
tect yourself and your family from
the health effects of the smoke:
Be your own health judge. If
you can see smoke outside, or
you feel the effects of the smoke,
avoid prolonged outdoor activi-
ties. It is especially important to


limit time spent outdoors for chil-
dren and persons with existing
medical conditions.
Stay indoors whenever pos-
sible. Run your air conditioner
with a clean filter and the fresh air
intake closed to prevent addition-
al smoke from entering your
home. If you don't have an air
conditioner and are at a comfort-
able temperature inside with the
windows closed, stay inside. If


your home is too warm, seek
alternative shelter.
Keep particle levels inside
your house lower by not smoking
tobacco or using anything that
burns, such as wood fireplaces,
gas logs, gas stoves and candles.
* Delay vacuuming when possi-
ble. Vacuuming stirs up particles
already inside your home.
Follow your doctor's advice
about taking your medications


and adhere to your asthma man-
agement plan if you have asthma
or other lung disease. Call your
doctor if your symptoms worsen.
Stay alert to any news cover-
age or health warnings related to
smoke. Pay attention to local air
quality reports. For more informa-
tion on the air quality index and
recommendations: please visit:

quality.htm.


American Red Cross

of PC celebrates 90 years


POLK COUNTY, Fla. May 17,
2007, marked the 90th anniversary
of the American Red Cross serving
Polk County.
The chapter first organized on
May 17, 1917, at the home of Mrs.
J.A.G. Allen in Winter Haven.
Ladies gathered there to make
shirts and bandages. As their activi-
ties and fundraisers grew, they
asked for a charter. The national
organization suggested they invite
other towns to join, so the "Eastern
Polk County Chapter" included
Auburndale, Davenport, Eagle
Lake, Eloise, Haines City, Lake
Alfred, Lake Hamilton, Loughman,
Mountain Lake, and Winter Haven.
Some towns formed the Haines
City Chapter for a time, but the orig-
inal office in Winter Haven was on
Central Avenue, between Second
and Third Streets West.
Eventually, the chapter
merged with other chapters, and
then with the Greater Lakeland
Chapter in 1985. What was then
called the "Ridge Area Chapter"
became the "American Red Cross
Polk County Chapter." The office
in Winter Haven sits only two
blocks from the original office,
but the Polk County Chapter has
come a long way.
From those humble beginnings,
chapter services would branch out.
Over the years, services included a
district health nurse to oversee


health in public schools; the Lakes
Life-Saving, of which current Exec-
utive Director Thomas E. Costello
and his father served as members;
assistance to military servicemen,
helping cut red tape for medical
treatment or compensation; first
aid, cardio-pulmonary resuscita-
tion, swimming and babysitting
classes; mass care feeding for dis-
aster victims and emergency per-
sonnel; and Disaster Action Teams
that respond to home fires and
other disasters within two hours of
being called.
The Polk County Chapter brings
together volunteers and supporters
from all over the county; and also
oversees the Highlands County Ser-
vice Center in Sebring.
No matter what time of day, no
matter how far or close to home,
Red Cross volunteers stand ready to
assist disaster victims. The Polk
County Chapter has sent volunteers
and staff to assist with disasters in
every city in the county, throughout
the state to assist with tornado,
flood and hurricane relief, and
through the nation and world to
help with relief efforts.
To learn more about your
American Red Cross, visit
http://polkeountyfl.redcross.org,
or call (863) 294-5941. Be part of a
tradition of helping others. Sup-
port your American Red Cross
Polk County Chapter.


Heartland Crime Stoppers

Information sought in two

Cases of disturbing grave


The Polk County Sheriff's Office
is seeking information about two
separate incidents in which graves
of Military Veterans were disturbed,
and the tombstones removed.
The first incident occurred on
April 26, 2007 when deputies
responded to a location on Berkley'

dale area, where four tombstones
had been discovered by ATV bik-
ers. The tombstones were of mili-
tary veterans who all served in
either World War I or World War II.
None of the tombstones had mark-
ings to indicate from where they
might have come.
The second incident occurred
on May 8, 2007 when deputies
responded to Biscuit Lake Ceme-


tery on Eddie Flood Road, Frost-
proof, where three military grave
sites had been disturbed, and the
brown metal grave markers identi-
fying the deceased veteran had
been removed.
If you have any information
regarding the identity of this person
or information regarding this inves-
tigation, please contact Detective
Michael Haygood, Polk County
Sheriff's Office, at (863) 534-6291
or (863)533-0344.

wants to remain anonymous and
be eligible for a CASH REWARD is
asked to call HEARTLAND Crime
Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS.

State acts to keep wildlife from endangerment


TALLAHASSEE In support
of America's wildlife, Florida's
Sen. Bill Nelson along with more
than half the Senate and 162 rep-
resentatives signed a letter urging
increased funding for federal State
Wildlife Grants. The letter sup-
ports a funding level of $85 mil-
lion for the State Wildlife Grants
program in fiscal 2008.
"Many of us in Congress agree
that more should be done to help
states protect wildlife before
more species become endan-
gered," said U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson.
"Since the federal wildlife grant
program enjoys strong support
from both sides of the political
spectrum, I'm hopeful we'll see a
funding increase this year."
Created by Congress in 2001,
State Wildlife Grants allocate fed-
eral dollars to state wildlife agen-
cies to address pressing wildlife
needs. This year Florida will
receive $2,522,570 in state wildlife
grant funding. Projects range
from habitat restoration to inva-
sive species management and
have created new conservation
partnerships between Florida's
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission and private conser-
vation groups. As the largest sin-
gle source of funds for state
wildlife diversity programs, State


Wildlife Grants have enabled
Florida to address preventing
wildlife from becoming endan-
gered.
"We are extremely grateful to
our representatives and senators
who have joined together in this
strong show of support for
wildlife conservation," said The
Nature Conservancy's Tina Sulli-
van.
In an ambitious effort to
address conservation for all of
Florida's fish and wildlife, The
Nature Conservancy joined with
the state of Florida to produce
wildlife action plans for conserv-
ing the state's terrestrial, freshwa-
ter and marine habitats. This
process has set the stage for state,
federal and private funding for
conservation in Florida for years
to come.
The president's FY08 budget
proposes a small increase in State
Wildlife Grants to $69.5 million
from last year's $67.5 million.
Congressional supporters believe
this program needs greater fund-
ing $85 million to imple-
ment wildlife action plans. Flori-
da's wildlife action plan is a
component of the State Wildlife
Grants program specifically
required by Congress. The strate-
gy outlines proactive actions to


conserve wildlife and wildlife
habitat before it becomes more
costly to protect.
"The state wildlife grant pro-
gram is an important tool in pre-
venting wildlife from becoming
endangered," said Rep. Timothy
Mahoney. "I am hopeful that sup-
port for the program in both the
House and Senate will result in
increased funding for FY08. Clean
air and water are things our chil-
dren and grandchildren will thank
us for."
"In its first few years, the State
Wildlife Grants program already
has helped restore degraded habi-
tat, fill important research and
information needs on wildlife
species and encourage the effec-
tive stewardship of private lands,"
said Dr. Thomas Eason, Florida
Fish and Wildlife Commission.
The State Wildlife Grants pro-
gram is supported by Teaming
With Wildlife, a national coalition
of more than 5,000 groups, 104 in
Florida, including state fish &
wildlife agencies, wildlife biolo-
gists, recreational conservation-
ists, nature-based businesses and
others who support the goal of
restoring and conserving our
nation's wildlife. Teaming With
Wildlife has launched a renewed
campaign to boost state and fed-


eral funding for wildlife conserva-
tion, outdoor recreation and con-
servation education in every state.
Increased funding of the State
Wildlife Grants program is an
important component of this
campaign, which supports the full
implementation of the state
wildlife action plans.
Teaming With Wildlife is guided
by a steering committee of 13
organizations, including The Nature.
Conservancy, American Fisheries
Society, Association of Fish and
Wildlife Agencies, Association of
Zoos and Aquariums, Congression-
al Sportsmen's Foundation, Nation-
al Wild Turkey Federation, National
Wildlife Federation, Theodore Roo-
sevelt Conservation Partnership,
Wildlife Conservation Society, The
Wildlife Society, and the Wildlife
Management Institute. Additional
information on the State Wildlife
Grants program, the Teaming With
Wildlife campaign and a complete
list of signing members is available
at http://www.teaming.com/. For
more information on the wildlife
action plans, go to

The Nature Conservancy has
helped protect more than 1.1 mil-
lion acres in Florida since 1961.

U.S. Sugar responds to 'Sour on Sugar' editorial


In response to an editorial,
"Sour on Sugar" which
appeared in an Orlando newspa-
per recently, Mr. Robert E. Coker,
senior vice president of public
affairs of U.S. Sugar in Clewis-
ton, made these comments:
"(The editorial) does not
reflect the real world that we
have been doing business in for
more than 80 years.
"In the real world, mega-food
companies are paying 35 per-
cent less today for sugar than in
the 1980s, yet the price of sugar-
sweetened products has gone
up more than 50 percent over
the same time.
"The sad truth is that price
savings at the expense of the
American sugar farmer have not
been passed on to their cus-
tomers and never will be.
"In addition, American con-
sumers pay 30 percent less for
sugar at the supermarket than
consumers in other developed
countries. Restaurants give it
away for free. That is because
American sugar farmers are effi-
cient sugar producers. In fact,


even with much higher wages,
labor and environmental regula-
tions, Florida sugar farmers are
among the lowest-cost sugar
producers in the world.
"Our sugar policy is vital
because foreign governments -
which subsidize their sugar
farmers to below the cost of pro-.
duction, pay slave-labor wages
and have virtually no environ-
mental regulations would
wipe us out. American farmers
can compete with foreign farm-
ers but not with foreign govern-
ments. That is why we need a
sugar program in the United
States.
"Furthermore, the current
administration has been negoti-
ating trade agreements right and
left, so obviously U.S. sugar poli-
cy is not holding them back. In
fact, the sugar program is one of
the few American farm pro-
grams that does not include
direct subsidy payments to
growers, it is World Trade Orga-
nization legal and operates at
zero cost to American taxpayers.
"More good news. In 2007, as


a result of more than a decade of
water-quality initiatives, the
water flowing off of sugar farms
is about the cleanest water that
now goes into the Everglades.
"Orlando's urban runoff flow-
ing south is a large part of the
problem damaging Lake Okee-
chobee, the coastal estuaries
and the Everglades. The Florida
Legislature recently passed legis-
lation allocating more than $200
million of taxpayer funding to
begin to address pollution in
Lake Okeechobee and the St.
Lucie/Caloosahatchee estuaries.
"The sugar industry is an
important part of Florida's econ-
omy, and with the progress that
has been made on the environ-
mental front, it is an integral part
of keeping Florida green. Except
for the extreme anti-sugar crowd
that the Sentinel panders to, rea-
sonable people realize that
growing sugar just south of Lake


Okeechobee is by far the pre-
ferred land use.
"In the last decade, sugar
farmers have cleaned our water;
we have complied with all state
and federal water-quality regula-
tions; we have reinvented our
business to compete with more
foreign imports; we have a high-
ly paid union.work force with
excellent benefits; and we have
invested in the latest sugar tech-
nology because we are commit-
ted to remaining in the sugar
business for the long term.
We have vigorously support-
ed the Comprehensive Ever-
glades Restoration Plan and
Lake Okeechobee/estuary
recovery legislation. We have
not filed lawsuits, and we do not
appreciate the Sentinel's and
others' refusal to recognize
progress.
"It is time to move on."

Vitamin enhancements


added to foods


New on the market, Diet
Coke Plus is being publicized
as the first diet soft drink
enhanced with vitamins. One 8-
ounce can has 15 percent of the
Recommended Daily
Allowance (RDA) of Niacin, Vit-
amins B6 and B12 and 10 per-
cent of the RDA for zinc and
magnesium.
Out of curiosity, I sampled
Diet Coke Plus and I think it
tastes just like Diet Coke. The
vitamin enhancement probably
won't make me buy more Diet
Coke. I prefer green tea to diet
sodas, and interestingly
enough, green tea already
comes with natural vitamins.
Still, for those who already
drink regular Diet Coke, switch-
ing to Diet Coke Plus might
make sense.
If the Diet Coke Plus goes
over well, we'll probably see
other sodas offering vitamin-
enhanced versions too.
Enhancing foods with extra
vitamins is nothing new.
Remember "Wonder Bread"?
To counter the complaints that
white bread had so little nutri-
tional value, the makers of
"Wonder Bread" came up with
ways to add nutrients but still
keep the white bread look, fla-
vor and texture.
Ovaltine, which was one of
my grandfather's favorite
drinks and which is still a
favorite at my house, adds

At today's supermarkets you
can find orange juice with
added calcium, milk with
added vitamin D and cereals
that boast 100 percent RDA of
key vitamins and minerals.
Do we really need all these

"enhancements"? And what
about all those vitamin supple-
ment choices in the supermar-
ket's vitamin aisle?
Ideally, human beings are
designed to eat whole foods
and absorb all the nutrients
they need from the foods they
eat. However, Americans tend
to eat so many processed foods
that getting your RDA of essen-
tial vitamins is sometimes diffi-
cult.
Should you opt f6r the vita-
min-enriched foods or even
take a multi-vitamin? Ask your
doctor.
There is no "One size fits all"
answer to the vitamin question.
Different people have different
nutritional needs. And some
people have vitamin-related
health issues. For example,
while most people consider
bananas a healthy food choice,
eating bananas can be risky for.
those who have problems with
excess potassium.
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise plan,
consult your doctor. This is
especially important if you are
on any prescription medica-
tions. Some drugs interact
badly with foods that would
otherwise be considered
"healthy."


Pet owners should prepare for storms


With an above-average hurri-
cane season predicated for 2007,
now is the time for pet owners to
get prepared by creating a plan
and gathering supplies so you are
ready when a hurricane strikes.
"The key to survival during a
disaster for you and your animals
is to be as prepared as possible
before the storm hits," comment-
ed Randy Covey, director of disas-
ter services for The Humane Soci-
ety of the United States. "Take the
time to create a plan and 'assem-
ble an emergency kit for you and
your pet. By taking these steps
now, you will greatly increase
your pet's chances of survival."


There are over 358 million com-
panion animals living in Ameri-
can homes. According to nation-
al surveys post-Hurricane
Katrina, 61 percent of pet owners
will not leave their companion
animals behind during a disaster,
which highlights the need for pet
owners to prepare.
The Humane Society of the
United States advises all pet own-
ers to have a kit for their pet,
which should include:
Three-or-more-day supply
of food in airtight, water proof
container, and drinking water
Bowls for food and water
Current photos and physical


description of your pets, includ-
ing details on markings
Medications, vaccination
records and first aid pet supplies
Comfort items such as a toy
and blanket
Small garbage bags
For dogs include-leash,
harness and a sturdy carrier large
enough to use as a sleeping area
For cats include-litter and
litter box and a sturdy carrier
large enough for transport and for
your cat to use as a temporary
"apartment" for several days
Planning is key, and Mr. Covey
also advises:
Placing the pet emergency


supply kit by the door or directly
in your car so it is ready to go if
you need to evacuate quickly
Making sure your pet has vis-
ible identification on right now,
before you have to leave home
Talking with a trusted neigh-
bor who is home during the
workday and can evacuate your
pets if you are away

Florida students continue to beat national average


TALLAHASSEE Education
Commissioner Jeanine Blomberg
recently announced the reading
and mathematics Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment Test (FCAT)
Norm-Referenced Test (NRT)
scores for third through 10th grade.
Each year, a portion of the FCAT
includes a national NRT. This is
used to measure how Florida stu-
dents are performing compared to
students nationally. In each grade,
Florida students have beaten the
national average score of 50.
"Teaching the Sunshine State
Standards in our schools is helping
our students remain nationally


competitive," said Commissioner
Blomberg. "When we equip our
children with the proper learning
tools we help them to succeed on a
multitude of levels."
The most common scores
reported for the NRT are national
percentile ranks. These scores tell
how a student ranked when com-
pared to a national comparison
sample. The scores range from the
first percentile to the 99th per-
centile, with the average student's
score at the 50th percentile. For
example, in fifth grade reading this
year, Florida's national percentile
rank is 74. This means that the aver-


age Florida fifth grader scored equal
to or better than 74 percent of the
national comparison sample.
The purpose of using the NRT is
to provide parents with an indica-
tion of how well students are doing
compared to their peers across the
nation. The national comparison
sample currently being used was
tested in 2002. Comparing the cur-
rent results to the national sample
indicates considerable learning
improvements by Florida students.
In fact, Florida's NRT performance
is well above average in all grades
on both reading and mathematics.
Mathematics scores for grades four


and five were in the top quarter of
the national sample.
The Stanford 10 is the national
NRT used by Florida. The content
assessed on the Stanford 10 is a
generalized national curriculum. It
includes some of the same con-
cepts of reading comprehension
and mathematics problem solving
as the FCAT, but does not assess
them in the same way. More infor-
mation about the Stanford 10 is
available on the department's web-
site at http://fcat.fldoe.org/pdffcat-
nrt-sat l0.pdf (PDF).

Corps of Engineers battles current drought issues


CLEWISTON, Fla. In
response to current drought
conditions, the U.S. Army COE
of Engineers, Jacksonville Dis-
trict (COE) is expediting evalua-
tion of a request from the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) to change the
COE's regulation rules for Lake
Istokpoga and Water Conserva-


tion Areas 1, 2A and 3A.
The COE is working with the
SFWMD, the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service and the Florida
Departments of Environmental
Protection and Agriculture to
identify the extent of any poten-
tial environmental concerns and
other issues, and to streamline
processes to address them.


The SFWMD has determined
that the 2007 drought requires
management actions that are
different than those used in 2001
and is adapting their request to
the COE as the drought persists.
To conserve water, the COE is
currently limiting the use of the
locks on the Okeechobee Water-
way.


Use of the locks may be fur-
ther limited as conditions con-
tinue to change.
Representatives of the COE'
South Florida Operations Office
report that the lower lake level
has allowed controlled burning
activity on portions of the
exposed lakebed, disposing of
debris and oxygenating the soil.
