ridians save money while pre-
paring for the new school year."

The Frostproof Art League
had a very successful 2 week
Art Camp with approximately
30 children in attendance. They
enjoyed creating a geometrical-
ly based painting the first week.
The second week, they
made pinch pots, coil pots and


slab boxes in clay. These were
painted. They also created
Caricature heads with Polymer
Clay. They ended the second
week by creating their own
unique designs on cake with
colored icing which was then
gleefully consumed.


v i q -.


Frostproof Art League would
like the Pizza Box for donating
cakes, the Rehab Center for
monetary donation and the
members of the Frostproof Art
League and volunteer teachers
for donating their time. The Pro-
gram was coordinated by Pat
Bowen and Kay Hutzelman.

Occupational licenses


appearance will change


The old "Occupational Li-
cense" name has a new face
- it's now called a "Business
Tax" and if you are engaged in
a business in Polk County you
will need to get one by Septem-
ber 30.
On Aug. 1, the Polk County
Tax Collector's Office will be
sending out over 40,000 busi-
ness tax receipt renewal forms,
according to Joe G. Tedder,
Tax Collector for Polk County.
The name change from 'oc-
cupational' to 'business tax',
changed in the Legislature last
year, will take effect on this
date.
"We don'twant the business
community to be confused.
This tax is in lieu of the annual
Occupational License that Polk
businesses have always filed.


There is no increase in cost to
local businesses," Tedder ex-
plains. "However, all entities of
any kind doing business in Polk
County are required to obtain a
Business Tax Receipt."
The state-wide name change
was made to clarify the purpose
for the tax assessed on busi-
nesses. This tax money is col-
lected by the Tax Collector and
distributed to the Polk County
Board of County Commission-
ers to be used exclusively for
economic. development. Last
year, more than $1 million was
spent to recruit business and
promote the economy in our
community.
Any businesses operating in
Polk County without a county
occupational license should
immediately contact the Tax


Collector's Office. Failure to
timely renewal or obtain an
initial license will result in sub-
stantial penalties.
Businesses that have not
received a renewal package
or need to obtain an applica-
tion for a county business tax
receipt can go to the Tax Col-
lector's website, www.polk-
taxes.com, to renew online or
download an application. Re-
newal transactions and appli-
cations can also be obtained at
any one of the Tax Collector's
branch offices.
To report businesses operat-
ing in Polk County without an
Occupational License, please
telephone the Tax Collector's
Toll Free Hotline at 1-866-687-
8876.


Did you know?
Armadillos are the armored mammals of the family Dasy-
podidae. The defining feature of armadillos is their "shell."
This structure consists of bony scutes covered with thin
keratinous (horny) plates. The scutes cover most of the
dorsal surface of the body. They are interrupted by bands
of flexible skin at least behind the head, and in most spe-
cies, at intervals across the back as well. The belly is soft
and unprotected. Some species are able to curl into a ball.
The top of the head is always covered by a shield of kera-
tin-covered scutes, and the tail is covered by bony rings.

Is aging affecting your memory? Speak Out


24-hour opinion line. Call (863) 635-2171 to


The Counseling Corner
By the American
Counseling Association
A common problem associat-
ed with getting older is the mem-
ory loss most of seem to encoun-
ter. Forget a couple of names or
misplace those car keys again
and we begin to think it's a first
sign of Alzheimer's and that we'll
soon be forgetting everything.
While Alzheimer's and other
types of dementia are certainly
very real problems, ,he reality is
that gradual, mild memory loss is
usually just a part of the normal
aging process, although not one
that we have to simply sit back
and accept. In reality, there are
many things that can be done
to maintain and improve your
memory. It's simply untrue that
every elderly person is going to
have a poor memory, or that it's
impossible for an older person to
learn new things.

The

Counseling

Corner
From the American
Counseling Association


For most of us, memory de-
cline is usually very gradual, gen-
erally not even noticeable before
the age of 70. And it doesn't oc-
cur in the same way for every-
one, since loss of memory can be
affected by our physical health,
lifestyle habits and even level of
education.
Most importantly, there are
things we can do Ito help over-
come the natural weakening of
memory that may occur as we
age.
One important step is to keep
an active mind. Just because you


Activities that engage your mind and make you
think all help improve memory.


are older does not mean you
can't learn something new, like
playing chess, how to cook, or
any of dozens of other new ac-
tivities that get you actively using
your mind.
Activities that engage your
mind and make you think all
help improve memory. When
you read a book or go to a movie,
and then discuss with friends its
details, themes and what did or
didn't work, you're keeping your
mind active and forcing your
memory to work.
If memory loss is worrying
you, check your library or book-
store for books with suggestions
for improving memory. Some
provide tips on how to organize
materials and information to


make remembering easier. Oth-
ers offer strategies, training sug-
gestions and practice sessions
to help improve memory skills.
The bottom line is a that some
memory loss as we age is perfect-
ly normal, not necessarily a sign
of serious mental deterioration.
But if you are worried that
your memory problems seem
more serious, talk to a counseling
professional or your family physi-
cian. They can offer tests to help
pinpoint any possible problems.

Many newspapers aggressively push the opinions of their publishers
or corporate owners.

But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think, or to try
to control public opinion. Our editors insist on purposeful neutrali-
ty. We try to report the news fairly and facilitate a fair but vigorous
discussion of public issues.

We are proud to be journalists, not power brokers. And we're proud
to understand the difference.

j Plants help clean


= = stormwater runoff


Brittany Alderman was wide
open on the pitching mound
at the Ocoee Fast Nationals.


Frostproof News/Cindy Monk
positioned to make the catch and through the North


Ocoee displayed several
signs welcoming the thou-
sands of softball players,
coaches and family members
for the Fast Nationals.


During a three-day airlift, the
South Florida Water Management
District this week began trans-
planting 23 tons of water-loving
plants to revitalize Florida's storm-
water treatment areas (STAs) .
The constructed treatment wet-
lands use 'green technology' to
absorb harmful nutrients and im-
prove the quality of water flowing
into America's Everglades.
The large-scale transplant-
ing is revitalizing specific areas
within the 6,700-acre STA 1-west,
the 9,000-acre STA 2 and STA 3/4,
which at nearly 17,000 acres is the
largest constructed wetland in the
world. As part of the $30,000 op-
eration, water managers are har-
vesting healthy batches of South-
ern Naiad, commonly referred to
as pondweed, from within the
STAs and moving the plants to ar-
eas where old plant life has died,
or construction and maintenance
work was recently finished.
After the pondweed is harvest-
ed, it is loaded into a large cargo
net and carried by helicopter to
a drop spot targeted with global
positioning system technology.
Hovering at about 500 feet, the
helicopter pilot releases the load
into very shallow waters. Known
as submerged aquatic vegeta-
tion because it grows at or below
the water's surface, pondweed
quickly re-establishes itself and
begins removing phosphorus
from water flowing into the treat-
ment areas.
District scientists and engi-
neers work constantly to main-


tain the appropriate balance of
plant life in the STAs, so the sys-
tems can continue removing ex-
cess nutrients from water found
in stormwater runoff. These nutri-
ents, including phosphorus, flow
from farms, lawns, roadways and
other developed areas. STAs help
remove these nutrients by chan-
neling water through a system of
treatment cells filled with wetland
vegetation.
As part of its intensive sched-
ule to improve water quality in the
Everglades, the State of Florida is
operating more than 41,000 acres
of constructed wetlands. Last
year, the STAs combined treated
nearly 1.5 million acre-feet of wa-
ter and prevented 176 metric tons
of phosphorus from reaching the
Everglades.
Stormwater treatment areas
have also become prime loca-
tions for native wildlife: Their vast,
.shallow waters and rich plant life
attract a wide variety of birds and
fish, as well as alligators, wild
hogs and deer. For more informa-
tion on Everglades restoration,

Florida Stunners dive at Nationals


The Florida Stunners traveled
to Ocoee, FL. last week to play in
the Girls Softball Fast Nationals.
After seeding 11 out of 42 teams
in the 16U bracket the Stunner
team fell short of placing in the
playoffs on Saturday.
According to Stunner Head
Coach Tommy Chatlos the girls
played exceptionally defensive-
ly, but they just weren't hitting
the ball as they had been. No
homeruns were hit but Deloach,
Dukes, Franklin, and Hutto all


had doubles.
Brittany Alderman a junior
from George Jenkins helped to
carry the Stunners with her pitch-
ing skills. Brittany was awarded
three game MVP's. The Stun-
ners defensive players Sidney

tion), Hannah Shoop(first base),

Arsenic may have come from variety of sources


Reports of high concentra-
tions of arsenic in the muck re-
moved from Lake Okeechobee's
shores have some area residents
concerned. Arsenic consumption
or exposure can be dangerous
- even fatal.
Where did the arsenic in Lake
Okeechobee come from? There
were probably a lot of sources. Ar-
senic is occurs naturally in the soil
and in some kinds of rock. When
rock ores are put in a smelter, the
arseric can be released and go
up the smokestack and is spread
by the'wind. Arsenic has been.
used in fertilizers and pesticides.
It is pumped into the air by volca-
noes and by coal-burning power
plants. Arsenic is also released if
you sand or burn wood that was
treated with arsenic as a preserva-
tive. According to a University of
Florida study, arsenic-treated lum-
ber debris in landfills could also
leach arsenic into the groundwa-
ter.
Arsenic has been used in rat
poisons and in some kinds of


Healthier

medicines.
In the, early 1900s, Florida
ranchers used dipping vats to
control cattle disease spread by
ticks. The pesticide in those dip-
ping vats was arsenic. When they
were no longer needed, the vats
were buried along with their toxic
residue. Rain fall in the areas of
these vats -- the locations of most
are unknown -- can spread the ar-
senic into the soil.
Until just a. few years ago, a
popular brand of lawn fertilizer
sold in Florida contained high
levels of arsenic. Well-meaning
gardeners had no idea their lush,


green lawns were sources of ar-
senic, which washed into swales
and drainage ditches with each
rain.
Should Floridians be con-
cerned that the soil and water
near their homes might also be
contaminated?
I found the following Frequent-
ly Asked Questions (FAQ) about
arsenic on the Center for Disease
Control's Web site.
What is arsenic?
Arsenic is a naturally occur-
ring element widely distributed
in the earth's crust. In the envi-
ronment, arsenic is combined
with oxygen, chlorine, and sulfur
to form inorganic arsenic com-
pounds. Arsenic in animals and
plants combines with carbon and
hydrogen to form organic arsenic
compounds.
Inorganic arsenic compounds
are mainly used to preserve wood.
Copper chromated arsenic (CCA)
is used to make "pressure-treated"
lumber. CCA is no longer used in
the U.S. for residential uses; it is


still used in industrial applications.
Organic arsenic compounds are
used as pesticides, primarily on
cotton plants.
What happens to arsenic
when it enters the environ-
ment? '
Arsenic occurs naturally in soil
and minerals and it therefore may
enter the air, water, and land from
wind-blown dust and may get into
water from runoff and leaching.
Arsenic cannot be destroyed
in the environment. It can only
change its form.
Rain and snow remove arsenic
dust particles from the air.
Many common arsenic com-
pounds can dissolve in water.
Most of the arsenic in water will
ultimately end up in soil or sedi-
ment.
Fish and shellfish can accumu-
late arsenic; most of this arsenic is
in an organic form called arseno-
betaine that is much less harmful.
How might I be exposed to
arsenic?
Ingesting small amounts


present in your food and water or
breathing air containing arsenic.
Breathing sawdust or burn-
ing smoke from wood treated
with arsenic.
Living in areas with unusu-
ally high natural levels of arsenic
in rock.
Working in a job that involves
arsenic production or use, such as
copper or lead smelting, wood
treating, or pesticide application.
How can arsenic affect my
health?
Breathing high levels of inor-
ganic arsenic can give you a sore
throat or irritated lungs.
Ingesting very high levels of ar-
senic can result in death. Exposure
to lower levels can cause nausea
and vomiting, decreased produc-
tion of red and white blood cells,
abnormal heart rhythm, damage
to blood vessels, and a sensation
of "pins and needles" in hands
and feet.
Ingesting or breathing low lev-
els of inorganic arsenic for a long
time can cause a darkening of the


skin and the appearance of small
"corns" or "warts" on the palms,
soles, and torso.
Skin contact with inorganic
arsenic may cause redness and
swelling.
Organic arsenic compounds
are less toxic than inorganic arse-
nic compounds. Exposure to high
levels of some organic arsenic
compounds may cause similar ef-
fects as inorganic arsenic.
How likely is arsenic to
cause cancer?
Several studies have shown
that ingestion of inorganic arse-
nic can increase the risk of skin
cancer and cancer in the lungs,
bladder, liver, kidney and pros-
tate. Inhalation of inorganic arse-
nic can cause increase risk of lung
cancer. The Department of Health
and Human Services (DHHS) has
determined that inorganic arsenic
is a known carcinogen. The Inter-
national Agency for Research on
Cancer (IARC), and the EPA have
determined that inorganic arsenic
is carcinogenic to humans.
