From May 21 to June 3, 2007

Agencies lead this effort by show-

the Florida Department of High-

shows that of the 32 vehicle fatal-

period, 66 percent of motorists
were unrestrained at the time of
the crash.

fatalities on Florida's roadways.
With support from NHTSA
and the Florida Department of

across Florida join forces with
more than 12,000 agencies

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go
wrong, and citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you
clip and tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The
vast majority of what happens in our community IS good.)

Richard Weiss warns residents of jury duty scam

Richard Weiss, Clerk of the
Circuit Court of Polk County,
Florida, reminds residents of a
growing identity theft scam.
Weiss, who serves as Jury
Manager for the court system,
wants you to know about an
ongoing scheme that starts with
a phone call from someone iden-

tifying themselves as a jury coor-
dinator. You are told that you
failed to report for jury duty and a
warrant has been issued for your
arrest. In order to clear the mat-
ter up, the caller asks for your
Social Security number and date
of birth. The appropriate
response? HANG UP THE

The phone call is a scam, and
providing the requested informa-
tion will lead to identity theft.
The gimmick has been report-
ed so far in eleven states. It is an
effective method of fraud; vic-
tims are vulnerable and fright-

ened when told they face the
possibility of arrest.
Weiss emphasizes that the
Polk County Jury Department
personnel never ask for confi-
dentially identifying information
on the telephone. He also states,
"Jury duty is important and
should be taken seriously by all

American Red Cross summer safety pool tips

Memorial Day marks
start of 'pool season'

TIES, Fla: Summer safety is
more than remembering sun
screen when going outside. It's
about being informed and pre-
pared when going in or near
water, especially at your local
pool, lake or beach. During the
Memorial Day Weekend, many
local outdoor pools will open for
the summer. The following tips
are important to note to reduce
the chance of an unfortunate
Learn to swim. The best
thing anyone can do to stay safe
in and around the water is to
learn to swim this includes
adults and children. The Ameri-
can Red Cross has swimming
courses for people of any age and
swimming ability. To enroll in a

course to learn or improve your
ability to swim, contact your local
Red Cross.
Never leave a child unob-
served around water. Keep your
eyes on the child at all times.
Adult supervision is recommend-
Install a phone by the pool or
keep a mobile phone nearby so
that you can call 9-1-1 in an emer-
Learn CPR and insist that
babysitters, grandparents, and
others who care for your child
know CPR.
Post or ask your homeown-
ers association or apartment
complex to post CPR instructions
and 9-1-1 or your local emergency
number in the pool area.
Keep toys away from the
pool when it is not in use. Toys
can attract young children into the
For homeowner's with

pools: Enclose the pool com-
pletely with a vertical-bar fence
with a self-locking, self-closing
gate. Openings in the fence
should be no more than four
inches wide. The house should
not be included as a part of the
barrier, and never leave furniture
near the fence that would enable
a child to climb over the fence.
*Always keep basic lifesaving
equipment by the pool and know
how to use it. Pole, rope, and per-
sonal flotation devices (PFDs) are
Pool covers should always
be completely removed prior to
pool use.
*If a child is missing, check the
pool first. Go to the edge of the
pool and scan the entire pool,
bottom, and surface, as well as
the surrounding pool area.

Take Charge America
offers 7 small changes
that yield big savings

PHOENIX As gas prices hit
record highs, and impending
summer vacations drain our wal-
lets, many consumers are search-
ing for newways to save. If you're
one of the many looking for extra
cash, you may not need to look
further than your own home, says
Mike Sullivan, director of educa-
tion for Take Charge America, a
national non-profit credit coun-
seling agency.
"There's a tremendous oppor-
tunity to save money in nearly
every room of your home," said
Sullivan. "By making several small
changes, we can save sizable
amounts of cash that can be used
more effectively, like paying off
debt or saving for retirement."
According to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Energy, Americans spend
more than $160 billion a year to
heat, cool, light and live in their
Sullivan offers seven house-
hold tips to help you cut your bills
and save:
Laundry Wash your clothes
in cold water, and wait until you
have a full load before running the
washing machine. This will help
you save money on energy and
water. You can also hang dry your
clothes, as opposed to using a
dryer, to save even more.
Lighting Use compact, fluo-
rescent light bulbs in all lamps,
which use less energy and last six
to 10 times longer than standard
incandescent light bulbs. And don't
forget to turn off the lights when
you leave the room.
Electronics Did you know
many electronics use energy (and
money), even when they're turned
off? For instance, your cell phone
charger still uses electricity even if

the cell phone is not plugged into it.
Remembering to unplug items like
the charger, DVD player, printer or
fax machine that aren't used on an
ongoing basis can help cutyour bills
too. You should also completely
turn off your computer when you
aren't using it, rather than allowing
itto "sleep" or "hibernate."
Cable If possible, bundle
your cable bill with your phone
and/or Internet bills. This can
amount to monthly savings. In
addition, movie channels are not
necessities. Cut them if you can.
Kitchen According to the
U.S. Department of Energy, appli-
ances account for as much as 20
percent of your energy bill. Newer,
more energy-efficient models save
energy and water. When possible,
use a microwave or toaster oven to
reheat small portions of food rather
than an oven. When washing dish-
es, avoid pre-rinsing if you are using
a dishwasher, and only run your
dishwasher with a full load.
Bathroom Bathing is the pri-
mary use of hot water in most
households. You can save water
and energy by taking short showers
instead of baths. Plus, low-flow,
aerating showers and faucet heads
significantly reduces the amount of
water usage.
Cooling/Heating Install a
programmable thermostat that
automatically adjusts your
home's temperature settings
when you're away or sleeping.
According to the U.S. Department
of Energy, a programmable ther-
mostat with its four temperature
settings can save up to $150 a year
in energy costs. If you are leaving
home for an extended period of
time, turn the thermostat off or
adjust the setting to conserve
energy while you're away.

Volunteers needed to collect scrub-jay information

Watch program needs citizen sci-
entists; free training session set
for June 2.
Citizen scientists successfully
documented Florida scrub-jay
populations on the Lake Wales
Ridge in 2006 and are needed to
continue the work this summer.
The Nature Conservancy proj-
ect to gather information about

this threatened species provided
excellent comparative data,
according to Dr. Reed Bowman,
associate research biologist and
head of the Avian Ecology Lab at
Archbold Biological Station. Bow-
man said the research program,
called Jay Watch, will continue to
be helpful as long as data collec-
tion is consistent between years.
That is why The Nature Con-

servancy is asking veteran Jay
Watchers to again participate in
the project this summer and will
provide a training session for
newcomers on June 2 to help
protect Florida scrub-jays. The
Florida scrub-jay, the state's only
endemic bird is severely threat-
ened by loss of habitat. Ninety
percent of the scrub-jay popula-
tion is gone.

Multigenerational families of
scrub-jays live together in very
specific areas of oak scrub habi-
tats. The data provided by these
volunteer "citizen scientists" will
be analyzed by The Nature Con-
servancy and Archbold Biological
Station and used to further protect
this threatened species.
The Nature Conservancy will
train volunteers as part of its suc-

cessful Jay Watch Program at 8
a.m. Saturday, June 2, at Lake
Kissimmee State Park in Lake

rience. For more information,

Pet owners urged to protect pets from snakebites

encounter of the reptile kind can
be a painful experience for your
pet. As with humans, a snakebite
to a pet can be a scary time and
present a life-threatening situation.
The southwestern U.S. is
ground zero for many types of
snakes, especially the poisonous
ones. What can you do to help
your pet recover from envenoma-
tion, the medical name for a poi-
sonous snakebite?
"The majority of snakebites
in the United States are commit-
ted by pit vipers such as rat-
tlesnakes, water moccasins and
copperheads, or by coral
snakes, members of the elapid
family," says Lori Atkins, small
animal veterinary technician in
the College of Veterinary Medi-
cine & Biomedical Sciences at
Texas A&M University.
Animals suspected of being
bitten by a pit viper should receive
immediate veterinary attention.
Decreasing the amount of activity

and keeping the pet calm is bene-
ficial, Atkins says.
Despite the potential threat of
a severe reaction, the vast majori-
ty of bites can be effectively treat-
ed. Veterinary care may include
antihistamines, intravenous flu-
ids, antivenin or antibiotics,
Atkins says.
"Antivenin is administered
intravenously to counteract the
toxic effects of the venom and is
most effective when adminis-
tered early in the course of treat-
ment," Atkins says.
Most of the toxic effects are
due to the ,enzymes in the
venom. Atkins notes there are
two types of venom neurotox-
ic, which affects the nervous sys-
tem, and hemotoxic, which
affects the blood and vessels.
The venom of many snakes con-
tains both components.
Signs that your pet has been
snake-bitten include puncture
wounds, immediate severe pain,
swelling and tissue necrosis, or

localized death of living tissue.
"The more severe signs may
take up to several hours to appear
and include shock, lethargy and
weakness, muscle tremors, and
neurological signs such as the ani-
mal having a hard time breath-
ing," Atkins notes.
"The severity of envenomation
- snakebite depends on the size
of the victim, site of bite, amount
of physical activity following the
bite, and the time elapsed prior to
medical treatment," Atkins said.
Where the bite occurs plays a
direct role in the rate the venom is
absorbed. Venom is absorbed rel-
atively quickly from bites on the
body, while bites to the legs,
head, and neck result in a slower
rate of absorption due to localized
swelling and subsequent change
in circulation, Atkins adds.
"Bites on the tongue are the
equivalent of intravenous injec-
tions," she confirms.
"The primary functions of
venom are to immobilize the prey

and predigest tissue. The bite
received from a snake that is sim-
ply startled will generally be less
severe than one from a snake that
is cornered. The snake will typical-
ly empty its venom glands when it
feels threatened," Atkins said.
Pet owners can prevent
snakebites by controlling dogs on
a leash and not allowing pets to
explore holes in the ground or dig
under logs. Staying on open paths
where snakes are more visible
may help your pet avoid a close
encounter of the reptile kind,
Atkins adds.

There is no 'magic' diet or food

Week after week, month after
month, the magazines proclaim
in bold print that they can help
you lose up to (fill in the blank)
Pounds per week just buy the
magazine and follow their
,,"breakthrough" plan. You see
:-this stuff when you check out;
we all scoff at it, but someone is
.keeping those magazines in
print! People BUY them. They
-buy them thinking "maybe this
will be The One". And do you
-know what? You might see a
good hint or idea, or a new idea
or two, but that's it. Know why?
Because there is no magic food!
It's like anything you want to
.,do, whether it's get your house
-in order or lose a little body clut-
ter, there is no magic cleaning
potion, no magic food and no
magic pill to make this all hap-
pen. It comes with consistent
babysteps done daily, period. It's
so simple, yet we spend so
much time looking for that
Magic something.
FlyLady says that all you need
to clean is a little soap (any kind
of soap) and some elbow grease
to clean. It's the same thing with
-food and losing that body clut-

6- Ely

ter; all you need is a little bit of
food (you need to be able to
identify it; no processed chemi-
cal foods) and you need to eat it
(in portion controlled sized serv-
ings) at regular intervals
throughout the day. Just like you
NEED a morning routine AND
an evening routine, you need a
routine for your eating you
can't save it up for one meal -
you'll be so ravenously hungry,
you'll overeat and that puts your
body working overtime to digest
everything. Not only that, but by
NOT eating at regular intervals
during the day, you put your
metabolism in PARK. There is no
need for your body to work at
optimum capacity; it thinks a
famine is approaching and it

needs to hold on to the very
thing you're trying to deal with:
body clutter!
We need to move ourselves
toward good, wholesome, easily
identifiable food eaten at regular
intervals. This was a big lesson
for me and resulted in 50
pounds less body clutter. Why
so effective? Because your
metabolism kicks in when its
given fuel (food) and burns
more efficiently. If you starve it,
it won't do what.you want it to
do! Your car will not go any-
where without gas, your body is
no different.
Breakfast is the most impor-
tant meal of the day as it gets you
started off right AND it gets your
metabolism going. Here are 8
ideas for good, easy breakfasts
from the Body Clutter Menu-

Senate ok's water

Development Act

Ann Wehle, Executive Director
of the South Florida Water Man-
agement District has issued a
statement saying, "The South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict is grateful to the U.S. Senate
for their near-unanimous vote
this week to reauthorize the
Water Resources Development
Act. Diligent efforts by Florida's
delegation and many others in
Washington who support envi-
ronmental restoration have
made this important step possi-
ble. A sincere thank you to Sena-
tors Bill Nelson and Mel Mar-
tinez for their leadership and
dedication to this effort.
"Florida remains uncondi-
tionally committed to Ever-

glades restoration and antici-
pates an ongoing, strong and
successful state-federal partner-
ship to make this vision a reality.
We are now one step closer to
saving a unique habitat and to
achieving the ecological goals of
this shared, unprecedented and
far-reaching restoration plan.
"As this bill moves into con-
ference for final, collaborative
review by the Senate and House
of Representatives, we support
our leaders' efforts to finalize
and approve their landmark leg-
islation. This agency remains
dedicated to working diligently
with all our federal, state and
local partners so that restoration
of America's Everglades never
stops moving forward."

department will institute food safe-
ty regulations governing all aspects
of tomato production in Florida.
Mr. Bronson is praising Governor
Charlie Crist for his support and
'signature last night of the general
Agriculture bill which includes this
vital new program.
In response to growing con-
.-cerns over tainted pet food and
-contaminated animal feed from
China, as well as recent food-
borne illnesses associated with
California spinach and peanut but-
-ter from Georgia, Commissioner
:,Bronson and the Florida Tomato
Exchange devised a plan to assure

consumer confidence in what is
one of Florida's largest crops and
convinced the Florida Legislature
to enact the change into law dur-
ing the recently-concluded legisla-
tive session.
"Florida is the nation's largest
producer of fresh tomatoes, and
our department and industry are
committed to doing all that we can
to make sure that our crop is the
safest that it possibly can be," Mr.
Bronson said.
Added Reggie Brown, of the
Florida Tomato Exchange, an
organization representing farmers
who produce about 90 percent of
the state's tomato crop:
"We're talking about a compre-
hensive statewide program requir-
ing mandatory standards to assure
that we produce the safest toma-
toes in the world as a means of

assuring public confidence."
Mr. Bronson said that he
believes that the new tomato
regulatory program will serve as
a model both in Florida and
throughout the nation, and that
the program will trigger other
commodity groups to seek such
oversight of the crops that they
Many Florida farmers, pack-
ing houses and other processors
currently rely on what are
known as Best Management
Practices (BMPs) or Good Agri-
cultural Practices (GAPs) to
grow and process the crops that
they grow or handle. But the
programs are voluntary, and the
change enacted by the Legisla-
ture involving tomato produc-
tion will make such practices

While FDACS will be
required to adopt specific rules
spelling out the requirements
that must be followed, the rules
are expected to include testing
of water used to irrigate the
crops, the installation of
portable toilets and hand wash-
ing stations on farms and in
packing houses, and routine
inspections of such facilities.
"Consumers, retailers and
food establishments are under-
standably concerned over the
safety of the food they eat or
purchase, and this new pro.-
gram will put Florida in the fore-
front of what our citizens want
and deserve, Mr. Bronson said.
'I applaud Florida's tomato
growers for stepping forward
and requesting this regulation of
their industry.

The Senate overwhelmingly
voted May 23 to reduce the num-
ber of guest workers allowed
into the U.S. under the immigra-
tion bill being debated. The
Amendment, introduced by Sen.
Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.), would
allow only 200,000 workers into
the country, half of the original
figure of 400,000. The 74-24
approval of the measure fol-
lowed the Senate's decision the
day before to kill a proposal
from Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-
N.D.) that would have eliminat-
ed the guest worker program.
Also approved was an
amendment to institute manda-
tory prison sentences for immi-
grants who cross the border ille-
gally and another that would
increase border security.
With many additional amend-
ments and expected prolonged
debate on the horizon, House

leaders say they may consider
introducing their own bill if cer-
tain modifications are not made.
The Senate has postponed a
final vote on the bill until June.
Meanwhile, Florida Fruit and
Vegetable Association (FFVA)
released a statement May 25
applauding the Senate's efforts
to pass comprehensive immigra-
tion reform. "The good news is
that Florida's senators under-
stand the importance of this
issue," said FFVA President Mike
Stuart. "We applaud Sen. Mel
Martinez for co-sponsoring the
original AgJOBS bill, which has
been incorporated into the com-
promise now under debate. He
and Sen. Bill Nelson have shown
courage and leadership in help-
ing to move this issue forward.
It's time for their colleagues to
do the same."
