Fouts retires from tax office

real estate tax, is retiring from
the Polk County Tax Collector's
office with distinction.
During his 35 years in tax col-
lection, Jack Fouts was tapped
twice by Governor Lawton Chiles
to be Tax Collector in two differ-
ent counties.
Gail Jones was Assistant
Tax Collector in 1,993 in Glades
County when the Tax Collector
there was removed from office.
Governor Chiles asked Fouts to
serve as the Interim Tax Collec-.

tor until a replacement could be
Fouts rose through the ranks
to become Polk's Assistant Tax
Collector under Hobson Strain
in 1983. When Strain retired in
1994, Governor Chiles appointed
Jack Fouts to complete his unex-
pired 2 year term.
As a result, Fouts has made
tax collector history, becoming
the only person to ever serve
in the top slot for two different
According to state records,
no tax collector has ever served

more than one county before.
The Honorable Ray .Valdes,
Tax Collector for Seminole Coun-
ty, commented, "No other Assis-
tant Tax Collector in the known
history of the State of Florida has
ever been asked by a Governor
to become the appointed Tax
Collector in two different coun-
ties. Jack did it not once, but
twice with distinction."
Fouts has served as the As-
sistant Tax Collector for Polk
County under Joe Tedder for
the past 10 years. Tedder readily
acknowledges Fouts influence
in the office. "We have made a

number of outstanding changes
over the past several years and
Jack has been a driving force in
all of them. He has made me a
better Tax Collector. The citizens
of Polk County have no idea the
quality of the public servant we
are losing."
Most recently, Fouts was
given the task of overseeing the
modernization of the property
tax certificate sale held annually
in May. Fouts ran the live auc-
tion for over thirty years as the
auctioneer. Polk has conducted
its certificate sale online for the
past three years and is one of the

counties leading the state in this
Lonnie Brown, Associate Edi-
tor of the Lakeland Ledger is a
long-time colleague and fellow
Kiwanian with Fouts. "When I
think of a dedicated public ser-
vant, I think of Jack. I would trust
him with my wallet...and I guess
I do that every year."
There will be a public recep-
tion honoring Jack Fouts' 35
years of service on Thursday, July
26, 2007 from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at
the Polk County Tax Collector's
Office in Bartow.

The city of Frostproof is

High School blood drive with
Blood Banks of Mid-Florida on
Saturday, July 14 at Friendship

Summer is an exceptionally
difficult time to collect enough
blood to meet the needs of local
patients. High schools, which
typically account for about 15
percent of blood donations dur-
ing the academic year, are out

PC SO launches new web

site and MySpace account

Sheriff Grady Judd and the
Polk County Sheriff's Office
have unveiled two new crime
fighting tools that families can
use in the comfort of their own
"Advancements in technol-
ogy have :made our children
more vulnerable prey; howev-
er, as a parent or guardian, you
can use this same technology
to protect your children from
predators," said Sheriff Grady
Judd as he announced the
launching of the Polk County
Sheriff's Office new "Offender-
watch" web site and MySpace
"Offenderwatch" is a pro-
gram that offers citizens the
abilityto conduct many different
kinds of map-related searches
of the sex offender data base.

It appears directly on the main
PCSO web site, www.polksher-
iff.org, on the right-hand side
below the drop down menus.
Web visitors can click on the
green box portal and r '.\ ill take
them to an inquiry page of the
"Offenderwatch" program.
Visitors may then select
the type of inquiry they are in-
terested in conducting, be it
geographical area, a specific
address search, or a sexual of-
fender/predator name search. A
map of the location will appear
on the page with highlighted
points representing the loca-
tion of known sexual offenders.
Near the bottom of the page of-
fenders' names, addresses, and
photographs are listed.
In addition to the map
search options, safety tips for

adults and children are avail-
able. An email alert option is
also offered.
By signing up for an email
alert, residents will receive an
electronic message when an of-
fender moves within a one mile
radius of a specific address they
have listed. The alerts can in-
clude emails on more than just
one address sensitive to fami-
lies. They can also include chil-
dren's schools, parks, or even a
friend or relative's home.
The information is updated
regularly and all offenders in
the county, to include those in-
side the city limits, are listed. "I
encourage you to invest time in
exploring this site and the infor-
mation it contains," said Sheriff

Banks of Mid-Florida must collect
at least 500 units of blood to meet
the need of local patients.
If you wait to donate un-
til somebody you know needs
blood, it's too late. It takes time to
test and process the blood after it
is collected. It's the blood on the
shelves that saves.

Judd. "Educating and maintaining
an open line of communication
with your children is essential. I
am committed to protecting the
safety and innocence of our most
precious resource our children;
law enforcement alone cannot
get the job done. We need vigi-.
lant parents, families, and com-
munities to protect our children."
Sheriff Judd said that the "Of-
fenderwatch" is only one new
tool that families have in fighting
crime. "Protecting Polk County's
children is more than just shield-
ing them from danger while they

it is to donate blood. Most donors
will say, however that it means
just a little more when you know
there is a specific need. During
the summer months there is defi-
nitely a specific need.
Most healthy people are eligi-
ble to donate blood. Most medica-
tions including those for diabetes,
blood pressure and cholesterol
are acceptable. In addition, Blood
Banks of Mid-Florida, along with
some other blood banks has re-
cently changed our cancer defer-
ral policy. Now cancer survivors

visit parks and playgrounds, it's
about shielding them from dan-
ger even while they are at home,"
said Sheriff Judd as he spoke
about the new PCSO MySpace ac-
The PCSO MySpace account,
countysheriffsoffice, also displays
educational resources for Internet
Safety for parents, teens, and chil-
dren, to include tips on choosing
an appropriate screen name.
MySpace was created in 2003
and, according to PCSO detec-
tives, is the third most popular web
site in the U.S. and the sixth most
popular in the world. MySpace
boasts of having over 100 million
subscribers with 230,000 new ac-

who would like to donate blood
again may have to wait only 12
months from their last treatment
or removal of the cancer. Cancer
survivors or others who wish to
donate and want to verify their
eligibility are encouraged to stop
by the blood drive or may call
Blood Banks of Mid-Florida at
863-297-1840 for a confidential
assessment. Since many cancer
survivors know first hand the
value of donated blood, we are
very pleased that we can now
welcome these very motivated

counts added per day.
MySpace accounts are created
by subscribing to the web site
and creating a list of friends or so-
cial network with whom the user
wishes to communicate.
Because a user is the only
individual who can provide per-
mission for others to visit an in-
dividual MySpace account, Sheriff
Judd invites parents to sit down
with their children and include
parents, family members, and the
PCSO on their "friend list."
Once the PCSO has been add-
ed to a "friend list," detectives can
visit a user's page and help par-

people back into the donor pool.
If you are a blood donor and
donated blood at least 56 days
ago, please come by and donate
blood again. If you have never do-
nated blood, we encourage you
stop by and be a Summer Hero.
Donating blood only takes less
than an hour and can help save
up to three lives. Each life saving
donor will receive an "Art for Life"
t-shirt, a free cholesterol screen-
ing test, a mini wellness check-up,
and a coupon for 10 FREE Wings
from Beef 'O' Brady's.

ents keep an eye out for potential
danger. "But don't expect the de-
tectives to do all the work," said
Sheriff Judd. "Just as easily as we
can be added to a social network,
we can be removed. Moms and
dads must continue to monitor
online activity closely."
The goal of the MySpace ac-
count is twofold; first, it will be a
reminder to those who visit how
important it is to practice safe
online activity; and second, it will
remind online predators, Polk

USF Lakeland offers new crime course

USF offers course
in crime mapping
and analysis
Beginning this fall, the Univer-
sity of South Florida Lakeland will
offer the first crime mapping and
analysis class in the USF system.
Professor Kim Lersch, Ph.D., who
will teach the course, says it de-
veloped in response to the needs
of students.
"The advent of desktop com-
puters and easy-to-use geographic
information systems has allowed
crime mapping, and analysis to
flourish within law enforcement
agencies," says Dr. Lersch. "Map-
ping technology has been around
since the 1980s, but only recently
has it become more affordable
and more user-friendly."
Crime mapping helps explain
patterns of incarceration and re-
cidivism, helps target resources
and evaluate crime prevention
or crime reduction programs,
and furthers the understanding
of causes of crime. Using crime
mapping technology, analysts can
better understand where crime
occurs and devise strategies to
target resources, and formulate
strategies to fight crime.
The crime mapping and analy-
sis class is part of USF Lakeland's
new online program that offers a
-- bachelor of science in applied sci-

ence (BSAS) degree with a con-'
centration in Criminal Justice.
"This class will be very hands
on," says Dr. Lersch. "The sfnaller
class sizes at USF Lakeland make
an ideal learning environment for
this type of class. It fits perfectly
with our polytechnic vision."
According to Dr. Lersch, the
class is filling rapidly, but some
slots are still available.
"We think students, many of
whom will be working law en-
forcement officers, will appreci-
ate the convenience of online
learning as they prepare for future
opportunities," says Dr. Lersch.
"My goal is to help them better
understand and use crime map-
ping and analysis, which in turn
gives them another skill for career
advancement. "
Local law enforcement offi-
cials have responded positively.
"I'm excited to see this class
being offered at USF Lakeland,"
says Sheriff Grady Judd. "By using
cutting edge technology, such as
crime mapping analysis, the Polk
County Sheriff's Office has been
able to successfully fight crime.
Having this class taught online
emphasizes the importance of
our community's commitment
to keeping law enforcement per-
sonnel well trained and using the
most sophisticated tools avail-
To prepare to teach this new

course offering, Dr. Lersch, re-
cently promoted to full professor,
is taking a geographic informa-
tion system class in the Geogra-
phy department at USF's Tampa
campus this summer. Last year
she took part in USF Lakeland's
Faculty Technology Integration In-
stitute, which helped her become
familiar with such teaching tools
as Blackboard, Smartboard and
Elluminate. She is also working
with local law enforcement agen-
cies to acquire "real world" crime
data for student use.
For more information on the
crime mapping and analysis
course or other criminal justice
courses, contact Dr. Jackie Reece
at (863) 667-7727 or (800) USF-
5636. Email jacreece@lakeland.
The University of South Flor-
ida is one of only 10 universities
ranked nationally in the top tier of
public research universities and
community-engaged universities.
With campuses is Lakeland, St.
Petersburg, Sarasota/Manatee,
and Tampa, USF has over 44,000
students and is one of the nation's
10 largest universities. The Lake-
land campus is establishing a
niche as a polytechnic campus,
focusing on applied learning
and research with solid technical
components. USF Lakeland offers
over 20 undergraduate, graduate
and certificate programs.

Public rate hearing set for insurance companies

Farm Bureau Insurance Group is
scheduled to meet with the Office
of Insurance Regulation in a pub-
lic rate hearing to be held on July
10, in Tallahassee. The rate hear-
ing examines the second of a two
step rate change process imple-
menting a mandated residential
property rate reduction passed by
the Special Session of the Florida
Legislature in January. The net
effect of this two step filing pro-
cess is an average statewide rate
reduction of 1.6 percent for Farm
Bureau companies. Florida Farm

Bureau Insurance Group stands
fully ready to cooperate with the
Office and to answer any ques-
tions they may have regarding
this rate filing.
During the 2007 Special Ses-
sion, the Florida Legislature
passed legislation requiring ev-
ery residential property insurer to
make a filing with the Office to re-
flect the savings or reductions in
loss exposure to the insurer from
the newly expanded reinsurance
capacity of the Florida Hurricane
Catastrophe Fund (FHCF).
On February 19, 2007, the

Office issued an order advising
residential insurers to make a fil-
ing to reduce rates based on new
discount factors ("Presumed Fac-
tors") as calculated by the Office.
This filing was limited in scope to
reflect only the estimated effects
of the "Presumed Factors" and
the elimination of the 25 percent
rapid cash buildup portion of the
insurer's Florida Hurricane Ca-
tastrophe Fund premium on the
rates currently in effect.
After making the "Presumed
Factors" filing, insurers had to
submit a "True-Up" filing to re-

flect actual savings due to all of
the provisions of the new legis-
lation and the anticipated 2007
reinsurance program. The "True-
Up" filing is subject to the "file
and use" provisions of Florida
Insurance Code, and must be a
complete rate filing meaning it is
not limited in scope as was the
"Presumed Factors" filing.
The Florida Farm Bureau In-
surance Companies manage-
ment feels it is in full compliance
with all provisions of the special
legislation and the Office order.

Taylor energy center to suspend plant permitting

in the Taylor Energy Center an-
nounced plans on July 5, to sus-
pend permitting activities while
they are participating in a state di-
alogue on Florida's energy future,
but stopped short of saying the
project is dead. A final decision
concerning the coal proposal
must be confirmed by the govern-
ing boards for the four participat-
ing municipal electric utilities: the
Florida Municipal Power Agency,
the Jacksonville Electric Authority
(JEA), Reedy Creek Improvement
District (Disney) and the City of
Many Sierra Club members
in Taylor County and across the
state of Florida have opposed
the partners' plans the past two
years. Though the people of Tay-
lor County have not been allowed
by their county commission to
vote on the issue, county com-
missioners have repeatedly curi-
ously referred to the "silent ma-
jority" as if most residents were
in favor of the coal plant. Local,
regional and statewide opposi-
tion has mounted steadily to the
partners' plan to burn dirty coal
at a time when climate change

"We all commend them. This administration
commends them for what they are doing today."
Charlie Crist,
Florida's Governor

and global warming are increas-
ingly growing concerns.
Florida's Governor Charlie
Crist praised the decision to halt
work towards a coal-fired power
plant in Taylor County. "We all
commend them. This administra-
tion commends them for what
they are doing today," Governor
Crist said during a news confer-
ence to discuss a climate change
workshop next week in Miami.
According to the partners, the
suspension will allow the utilities
time to assess how best to meet
their customers' electricity needs
in ways consistent with growing
concerns about greenhouse gas
emissions. The partnership ex-
pects to close its permitting pro-
cesses through the Florida Public
Service Commission and the Flor-
ida Department of Environmental
Protection. A spokesman for the
partnership maintained that the
partnership will continue to seek

a land-use change for the nearly
3,000-acre site next to the Buck-
eye Florida pulp mill and said that
some or all of the utilities in the
future may still wish to use the
site for a power plant.
Joy Towles Ezell, Sierra Club
Energy Chair said, "When only
4 people (aside from those who
were paid to represent the power
companies) spoke in favor of
the plant at the recent land use
hearing, with over 60 voicing
their firm objections, along with
serious objections raised at the
public service commission hear-
ing, it became very obvious that
a filthy coal plant is not accept-
able in Taylor County. The Public
Service Commission's decision
denying the Glades coal burner,
with the praise of Governor Crist,
was an unmistakable sign that
the partnership's coal proposal
was in trouble. Florida must
move beyond dirty coal and de-

velop a smart energy plan, one
that includes solar, wind and cur-
rent power. The Florida Chapter
of the Sierra Club looks forward
to playing a part in developing a
progressive clean energy plan for
the state."
Susie Caplowe, Florida Chap-
ter Sierra Club Legislative Affairs
said "Amidst increasing aware-
ness and concern about climate
change, dirty energy must not
be allowed in Florida. Rather
than continue with plans for a
dirty coal burner, it's more im-
portant that we develop a clean,
efficient, energy plan for Florida.
We look forward to working with
the Governor, the Florida Energy
Commission, ard the Legislature
to develop a better future for our
state, its citizens, and Florida's
fragile environment."

Southern Pine Beetle

prevention cost shared

culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son has announced that begin-
ning July 30, the department's
Division of Forestry will re-offer
the Southern Pine Beetle Pre-
vention Cost Share Program to
eligible non-industrial private
forest landowners.
The goal of the program
is to minimize southern pine
beetle damage in Florida by
helping forest landowners re-
duce the susceptibility of their
pine stands to this destructive
insect pest. Periodic southern
pine beetle outbreaks in Florida
have resulted in millions of cu-
bic feet of pine timber killed on
thousands of acres. Forest man-
agement practices, such as thin-
ning and prescribed burning,
can improve the health of pine
stands and decrease the likeli-
hood of developing southern
pine beetle infestations.
The program offers up to 50
percent cost reimbursement for
pre-commercial thinning and

prescribed burning treatments,
and a $50 per acre incentive
payment for landowners who
.conduct a first pulpwood thin-
ning. The program is limited
to 44 northern Florida counties
located within the range of the
southern pine beetle. Qualified
landowners may apply for one
approved practice per state fis-
cal year. The minimum tract
size requirement is 10 acres and
funding requests may not ex-
ceed $10,000.
For an application and more
information on program re-
quirements and procedures,
landowners can visit their local
Division of Forestry office. Con-
tact information for the county
forester office is available at
www.fl-dof.com. Applications
cannot be submitted before
July 30 and will be evaluated on
a first-received, first-served ba-
sis. The program is supported
through temporary grants from
the USDA Forest Service and
will be offered only as long as
funding is available.
