Red Cross aids local couple


The local Polk County Chap-
ter of the American Red Cross
has provided assistance to a
couple whose home was dam-
aged in a fire early Saturday eve-
ning in Frostproof.
Disaster Action Team volun-
teers from the American Red
Cross Polk County Chapter re-
ceived the call at 5:15 p.m. Satur-
day, July 21, and drove to the fire
scene on West B Street in Frost-
proof. They were able to provide
the couple with personal hygiene
kits, odor-control concentrate
to help salvage items from the.
home; emergency assistance for


groceries, and a Mickey Mouse
stuffed toy to comfort them, be-
cause their pet cat reportedly did
not survive the fire. The cat's five
kittens survived and the couple's
dog survived after receiving car-
dio-pulmonary resuscitation
from emergency responders.
The house was not totally
destroyed, but power has been
shut off. Red Cross volunteers
offered to provide temporary
shelter, but the couple declined
and chose instead to stay in a
travel trailer they have on-site.
Any time of the day or night,


on any day of the year, local
American Red Cross volunteers
stand ready to assist people in
their communities who need
help after a large or small disas-
ter. Home fires make up the ma-
jority of local Red Cross disaster
calls. The Red Cross can provide
emergency assistance for food,
clothing and/or shelter, depend-
ing on what people need in each
case, and also works with part-
ner agencies to refer people for
any further assistance they may
need.

on line to find men
who target children

through Monday, July 23, 2007,
a total of 25 adult males were
arrested and charged with so-
liciting sex from a child via
the internet during Operation

emonies and marched in the


forcement (ICE), and the Plant

ing in conjunction with mem-
bers of the State Attorney's

rected by PCSO detectives, is
the third such operation con-
ducted in Polk County that dem-
onstrates law enforcement's
continuous commitment to
fighting Internet crimes against
children. Undercover detectives
used chat rooms and instant
messaging to direct suspects to
the location.
Sheriff Grady Judd ex-
pressed his ongoing commit-
ment to protecting children's
emotional and physical well-

ployment rate (2.2 percent), fol-
lowed by Monroe County (2.7
percent). Franklin, Liberty, and
Okaloosa counties followed

County (5.6 percent); and Her-
nando and Madison counties
(5.4 percent each).
In Polk County, the unem-
ployment rate for June 2007

lowest unemployment rate of
the ten most populous states
and continues to be below the

being. "It's obvious that these
deviants never learn, and it's
disappointing to know that we
have arrested child predators
who come from public service
industries. This reconfirms our
dedication to our number one
cause, and that's keeping chil-
dren safe," said Sheriff Judd.
"The message to the predators
is this: If we didn't arrest you
this time, we will get you next
time. You are going to leave
Polk County's children alone."
Sheriff Judd expressed his
appreciation to all the agencies
that assisted with Operation
Guardian.

Collum joined the Sheriff in

those "snow birds" to hurry back
soon and just how much they are
missed. A video was also made
here to send down to our Florida
Church Family. There were a lot
of photos from various church
activities this past winter, and a lot
of reminiscing and we even got to
enjoy a video of our Church's First
Easter Cantata, in which many of
those present were involved, be-
fore heading North to Ohio.
Plans were made for the 2008
reunion, to be held at Der Dutch-
man Restaurant at Plain City

Christian friends at this upcoming
reunion.

eration is an excellent example of
what cooperation between fed-
eral, state and local law enforce-
ment can accomplish.
These individuals would have
victimized helpless children were
it not for the efforts of these dedi-
cated men and women fighting
for the safety of Florida's young-
est citizens. My office will work
to ensure that these internet child
predators will be shown no mer-
cy in the courtroom, just as they
would have shown no mercy to-
wards their intended victims."

were staying in cities around Flor-
ida and traveled to Polk County

a child. Their ages and occupa-

Prenatal screening benefits all pregnant women


All babies deserve a healthy
start in life, but the unfortunate
reality is that too many babies are
at risk for health problems before
they are even born. Many times,
these risks can be eliminated
when the mom-to-be receives
some basic education, guidance
and encouragement.'
To ensure that possible risk
factors are considered, expectant
moms should ask their doctor or
nurse to complete a Healthy Start
Prenatal Risk Screening form.
The form asks a series of simple
questions that allows healthcare
providers to identify potential
risks and link moms to available
services provided through their
local Healthy Start coalition and
community resources.
Completing the Healthy Start
Prenatal Risk Screen is valuable
for all mothers regardless of age,
race or economic status. Risk
factors that could result in a pre-
term or low-birth-weight baby do
not discriminate, and identifying
them early enough can make a
significant difference.


"It has been demonstrated
that if we can screen moms early'
in their,pregnancies, we can mea-
sure the difference made when
we identify and intervene with
problems," said Dr. Robert Yel-
verton, medical director and CEO
of Tampa Bay Women's Care.
"The rates of complications, in-
cluding low-birth weights, pre-
mature births, infant mortality
and still births go down. Prena-
tal care and screening for high-
risk moms greatly reduces these
complications."
It certainly was worth it to 17-
year-old Jewell McCray, who was
referred to Healthy Start by her
healthcare provider after complet-
ing the screening form, received a
variety of services and was intro-
duced to her Healthy Start care
coordinator, who had also experi-
enced motherhood as a teenager.
"She gave me information on
different job offers, day cares,
childbirth classes and showed
me where to go for car seats and
cribs," Ms. Mc.Cray said. "And once
in a while she would drop by my


house just to talk. She helped me
figure out what 1 should do how
to go to school and raise a baby.
To tell you the truth, I can't even
imagine what I would be doing if
I didn't have Healthy Start."
Dr. Yelverton suggests that all
moms request their healthcare
provider complete the Healthy
Start screen, regardless of their
social standing. "Many women
just feel that they are not in the
same category as those who need
supportive services," he said.
"They have a private doctor and
they think he or she will take.care
of everything for them. The risk
screen, however, identifies things
about the mom's health, preg-
nancy and environment that the
doctor may need to know about,
but might not ask."
Alicia Hendrix was one such
mom. After completing the pre-
natal screen at her obstetrician's
office, she never expected to hear
anything about it again. After all,
she thought, she and her husband
had a pretty decent combined in-
come and Healthy Start was for


low-income women.
But her completed screening
form pointed out that she had an
existing medical condition that in-
creased the chance of a low-birth-
weight baby, which triggered
the referral by her provider to a
Healthy Start care coordinator.
"I really didn't know anything
about Healthy Start, but it sound-
ed like a Medicaid program to me,
and I just thought we made too
much money to qualify," said the
31-year-old from Merritt Island.
"Receiving services from the
Healthy Start program prepared
me for a better emotional well-
being in coping with the new life-
style of having a child," Hendrix
said. "It is very reassuring to have
someone to talk to and makes
you feel so much more confident
about everything you're going
through."
Completing the prenatal screen
also can help create a blueprint
for addressing immediate, and
sometimes unforeseen, needs.
Such was the case with Laurie
and Ricky Rickett, who had their


lives turned upside down due to
a most unlikely and unexpected
pregnancy. But thanks to care co-
ordination services received from
Healthy Start, they have landed
safely on their feet.
Laurie and her then-fiance,
Ricky, had just moved to Jackson
County from Mississippi to help
care for her ailing father when
some pregnancy symptoms and
mild weight gain prompted a visit
to the county health department.
It couldn't be possible that she
was pregnant, as Laurie, age 40,
has an adult child and had been
non-ovulatory for 20 years.
They were wrong.
Laurie was not only pregnant,
she was seven-and-a-half months
pregnant, and the reality of their
situation set in quickly. "We didn't
know anyone here," she said.
"We didn't know any doctors or
nurses, and didn't have any insur-
ance." Laurie said the nurse at
the health department asked im-
mediately if they wanted to see a
Healthy Start coordinator.
"I didn't know anything about


the program, but I thought any-
thing that would help me or the
baby would be an asset,' she
said. They would soon realize
what an important decision they
had made.
"Healthy Start is unbelievable,"
Laurie said. "We received help
with transportation to appoint-
ments and information on child
safety seats, breastfeeding, how
to hold the baby, SIDS and apply-
ing for the WIC program. A lot has
changed over the last 20 years."
A healthy Richard Thomas Rick-
ett was born on March 6, 2007.
New moms also should ask
their delivery provider, pediatri-
cian or family doctor about the
Healthy Start Infant Risk Screen, a
set of questions that help moms
find out if there is anything about
their baby's health at birth that
could affect his or her first year
of life. And, as with the Prenatal
Screen, all answers are kept pri-
vate and all services are free.
