What is Aplastic
Aplastic anemia is a disorder
in which the bone marrow
greatly decreases or stops pro-
duction of blood cells.
Description: The bone mar-
row (soft tissue which is locat-
ed within the hard outer shell of
the bones) is responsible for
the production of all the types
of blood cells. The mature
forms of these cells include red
blood cells, which carry oxy-
gen throughout the body;
white blood cells, which fight
infection; and platelets, which
are involved in clotting. In
aplastic anemia, the basic
structure of the marrow
becomes-abnormal, and those
cells responsible for generating
blood cells (hematopoietic
cells) are greatly decreased in
number or absent.

bers and 21 community partners,
business leaders, teens and volun-
teers represented Polk County's
diverse population of all ages, eth-
nicities and cultures working
together to improve our communi-
ty. According the National Civic
League, the All-America County
Award application is purposely
arduous to ensure only the most
deserving of communities apply
and are selected. A panel of judges
representing government, business
and civic organizations from across
the U.S. listened, learned, ques-
tioned and ultimately determined
Polk County deserved this presti-
"Polk County, once a very
homogenous "Old Florida" com-
munity, has, like many other Flori-
da locations, struggled with the
challenges of growth and a rapidly
diversifying population with
diverse needs. We've worked hard
to create a new sense of communi-
ty identity that is truly deserving of
the coveted title "All-America Coun-
ty," said Cindy Price, Vice-Chair of
Polk Vision. "This award is the tan-
gible proof that a once fragmented
community has embraced the
ideal of creating a great place to live
- turning our collective dreams into
reality, together, to become the
County of Choice! To be recog-
nized by the National Civic League
is an honor and a tribute to the pas-
sion and spirit that IS Polk County!"
As America's original and most
prestigious community recogni-
tion, the All-America County Award
encourages and recognizes civic
excellence, honoring communities
in which citizens, government,
business and nonprofit organiza-
tions demonstrate successful reso-
lution of critical community issues.
"This has been a tremendous
learning experience," said Polk
County Commissioner Bob Eng-
lish. "We visited with other finalists,
discussed programs working
across the country and have
brought back some fabulous ideas
to share with and further build our
Since 1949, more than 4,000
communities have competed and
more than 500 communities of all
sizes (cities, towns, counties,
neighborhoods and regions) have
earned this distinguished title.
These communities exemplify
community members, govern-
ment, businesses and nonprofit
organizations working together to
address critical local issues.
Polk County's winning applica-
tion and presentation featured
three grassroots programs: Hurri-
cane Heroes, Park Partners and
Teen Pregnancy Prevention
Alliance Youth Leadership Team.
Hurricane Heroes The 2004
hurricanes caused Polk's residents
and business owners to test their
survival skills, and left them won-
dering how the local economy
could overcome such destruction.
The Hurricane Heroes campaign
markets Polk County to the thou-
sands of out-of- county electric
company line workers, insurance
adjustors and FEMA staff who
assisted with the 2004 hurricane
recovery. This initiative has helped
increase sales of overnight accom-
modations, providing a much
needed boost to our economy after
a devastating hurricane season.
Park Partners Park Partners
focuses on park rejuvenation
through community commitment,
asking residents to assume owner-
ship of a park by signing an adop-
tion pledge to care for and maintain
park facilities. Park Partners also
has developed a system by which
plants can be propagated, planted
and maintained solely through
community volunteers with pro-
grams such as Backyard Nurseries,
Schoolyard Nurseries, Boot Camp
Nursery, "How To" Clinics, pre-
ferred customer discounts, and a
plant delivery network.
Teen Pregnancy Prevention
Alliance Youth Leadership Team -
This team provides outreach and
education to teens through school
and community based events. Its
mission is to educate teens and
encourage them to set healthy
goals and make appropriate and
responsible choices. The team
members, students ranging in ages
from 10 to 19 years, also advise the
Teen Pregnancy Prevention
Alliance on many aspects of their
work and give a voice to the unique
perspective of Polk's teens.
"To be selected as an All-Ameri-
ca County speaks volumes of the
leadership, civic pride and strength
of community that is evident in Polk
County," said County Manager
Mike Herr. "The camaraderie and
team spirit that evolved during
rehearsals and unified those direct-
ly involved, the lives they touch and
Although technically a "designa-
tion" and not a cash award the All-
America County honor, has provid-
ed tangible and intangible benefits
for past winners. Communities that
earn the title realize numerous ben-
efits, including national recogni-
tion, greater civic collaboration and
economic stimulus. Award win-
ners have reported increases in
tourism, grants, bond ratings, new
businesses and new residents as a
result of the designation. The All-
America County designation indi-
cates to businesses and individuals
that the County is an ideal place to
live, work and play.
"The award reinvigorates a
community's sense of civic
pride," said English. "Winning
communities benefit from using
the ingenuity, wisdom and tradi-
tions of the entire community in
Many community individuals
and businesses were involved in
the successful send-off of the team
and their presentation, including
Clark/ Nikdel/Powell, Inc. of Winter
Haven, and DC Inc Portable Weld-
ing and Fabrication of Bartow who,
along with the Central Florida
Development Council, sponsored
the team's winning efforts.
The Board of County Commis-
sioners authorized up to $50,000
for the competition expenses, but
total expenditures are expected to
rest near $45,000. The board's
expenditure, will be reduced by
contributions from the community,
$10,000 in contributions from area
businesses through the Central

Pefectionism hits whole new level Church Directory
This weekend we had the pleas-
ure of attending the wedding of dear
friends of ours. It was supposed to
be a beach ceremony but Tropical
Storm Barry had other ideas. We
worry and plan so hard and then
plan B happens. The day Robert
and I got married it rained all day.
The preacher even got stuck in our
driveway! Rain is a good sign.
Our friends' wedding ceremony
was preformed in the parking area
underneath a restaurant with all
their friends and family around
them. Isn't that all that matters. At
the dinner after the wedding, the
bride asked me a cute question and
wondered how my members
would respond to this.
Before I tell you the question I
want to tell you about a question
my sweet darling asked me after
we got married. His question had
to do with how I folded towels. He
asked if he folded the towels would
I refold them. I told him that if he
folded the towels that I would
thank him and put them away. I
asked, "WHY WOULD I REFOLD
THEM?" He told me that his first
wife would refold them because
they had not been folded the way
her mother taught her. This was so
funny to me.
The groom had asked his bride
a similar question the other day.
Are you going to fuss at me if I put
the toilet paper on the holder the
wrong way? He was.serious! His
bride looked at him like he was
nuts. She said, "Do you mean there
is a way to put it on the holder that
is a right way?" The groom went on
to explain that this has been a huge
bone of contention with the last
woman he was married to and he
didn'twant to make any mistakes.
So the bride being a curious
sort decided to ask her friends and
family about if there was a right
way or wrong way to put the roll
of toilet paper on the holder;
much to her surprise they all had a
STRONG opinion on this. So her
question to me was, do I have a
specific way I load the toilet paper.
I just died laughing.
I am happy to not have to drip
dry! If this question hits too close to
home for you then we need to talk.
Perfectionism has hit a whole new
level. When we allow something
so stupid as how a roll of toilet
paper is loaded on the holder to
turn us into a raving maniac then
we need to find some relief from
our perfectionism. Now if you pre-
fer it one way and change it your-
self without pitching a fit then that
is ok but every time you flip the roll
I want you to realize that perfec-
tionism is there. I did away with the
holders in my bathroom so that
became a non-problem in my life.
This weekend I gave the bride
and groom a card with these words
What do you give someone
who has everything they could ever
want since they have found each
other? I'll give you these words.
Don't sweat the "small stuff;
what doesn't matter just doesn't
Laugh every day even if it is at
And love like there is no tomor-
Dear Friends; Do you see how
these simple words rule out perfec-
tionism when it comes to toilet
paper and towels? How toilet
paper is loaded is one of those
things that just doesn't matter. We
don't have to do this to ourselves
and our families another day.
Are you ready to FLY without
perfectionism holding you down!

Are you a victim of portion distortion?
One of the things that I have
struggled with in regard to my own
personal body clutter is learning to
eat less food than what I want to
eat. What I want to eat and what I
need to eat are often incongruous
and I have a small battle inside my
head trying to decide if I am going
to "behave" or "sin". You know
exactly what I'm talking about!- It's
an issue I know a.lot of us all share
in common. Getting a grip on how
much you really need food-wise is
tough. We are used to overfeeding
ourselves, truth be told.
Take restaurants for example.
Not only do they bring your food on
PLATTERS and not plates, they give
you enough to feed your entire
family. And what do we do? The
food comes, we oooh and ahhh
over how big the portion is and
then we dig in. We will either eat till
we're stuffed and bag it up to take
home or we'll eat it all and com-
plain about how full we are.
SLet me share with you how
many calories are in a typical
chain restaurant meal. For fun, I'm
going to share with you some-
thing I just ate at a major chain
restaurant (thinking a salad would
be a good choice) and how blown
away I was that it was this many
calories and this much fat it's
The Chicken Caesar Salad I ate
had 1,010 calories and 76 grams
(yes, SEVENTY-SIX) of FAT! Hello??
I was absolutely STUNNED! That's
just not doing my body any favors!
13 grams of that 76 fat grams were
saturated fat, too.
What does that tell you?
1) BEWARE of "healthy" main
course salad-options at restau-
2) Restaurant salad dressings
are usually really really over the top
fat-wise and in calories.
And that brings me back to my
original point: less food -we don't
need to eat all of that! The all-you-
eat-mentality is particularly pro-
nounced at restaurants. They BRAG
about their hefty portion size!
So how do you handle restau-
rants? Know what you're walking
into, for starters. If it is a chain
restaurant, look on line to see if you
can find the menu and the nutri-
tional info for the menu. Not all
restaurants do that, but there are
other sites out there with that info
-just google it.
Second, have a back up plan.
Order sauces, dressings and any-
thing else that you will lend a huge
caloric and often, fatty punch to
the meal, on the side. All restau-
rants will happily accommodate
Third, if you haven't split your
meal with a dining companion, ask
for a doggie bag right when your
meal comes. Cut your meal in
HALF or more, and bag it up. If it is
off your plate, you are less apt to
chow down on it and leave with a
And last but not least keep
restaurant eating as a treat and not a
part of your weekly plan. Eating at
home is always cheaper, most likely
to be more nutritious, you control
the fat and the salt and the service is
predictable, right? If you need help

Truck beds proven hazardous for dogs
You may want to think twice
about putting a dog in bed the
bed of a pickup truck, that is.
If you do, summer heat, wind
and poor restraints can not only
harm your pooch, but could also
hityour pocketbook as well.
Without a liner, the beds of
many trucks get hot enough to fry
an egg. "In the summer we really
worry about dog's paws because a
pickup bed can literally burn
them," said Dr. Bonnie Beaver, a
veterinarian at the College of Veteri-
nary Medicine & Biomedical Sci-
ences at Texas A&M University.
"Could you stand barefooted in
the back of your truck on a bright,
sunny day?" Dr. Beaver asked. She
likes to give pet owners an analogy
using people. Just as our feet
would start to blister from the hot
metal within seconds, a dog's paws
are at the same risk.
Dog's paws are not the only
concern. Debris from the wind can
cause major damage to Rover's
eyes and nose, she said. Beaver
notes that although the pressure
from the wind does not usually.
cause problems, it's the small
sticks, pebbles and acorns that are
the most common emergency.
The way dogs are restrained can
also be dangerous. Dr. Beaver
recalls one tragic incident where
the owner risked having his dog in
the back. Although the owner tried
to take caution by restricting the
dog with a rope, too much slack
"We've seen people driving
down the road literally dragging
their dog because it had enough
length of the rope to jump out of
the truck, but could just barely
reach the ground," she stated. Dr.
Beaver said that if you insist on put-
ting Rover in the back, make sure
the rope is short enough so he can-
not reach the sides or tailgate.
Before you even consider
throwing your dog in the back, you
might want to consider the penal-
.ties. Although there are currently
no national or state laws prohibit-
ing dogs in pickup trucks, many
local governments are taking their
time to save dog's lives.
Dr. Beaver said it's best to check
with your city or county officials to
see what their policies are before
you find yourself paying a hefty fine.
Between potential veterinary
bills and penalties, Dr. Beaver said
the best alternative is to leave the
dog at home. However, if it must
tag along, the safest way to travel
with your pup is with him inside
It depends on how active Rover
is as to whether a cage is needed. If
your pet is very energetic, placing a
cage in the backseat keeps the dog
from distracting the driver and run-
ning all over the car. Some calmer
dogs are content with just laying on
the floor board or backseat and
watching the scenery go by.
"We still don't have a good
restraint for traveling with cats or
dogs," Dr. Beaver explained. "There
is still a risk of the dog being thrown
around the cab or cage if a sudden
stop is made or a wreck occurs."
Next time you are road-tripping
with your furry friend, keep in mind
what the experts say: He's man's
best friend, so consider his safety
before quickly throwing him in the
back of a pickup.
