A tough beginning!
For some unexplained reason, MaMa Great Horned Owl
disassembled the nest several weeks early, and one of
her babies fell out of the tree. It was rescued by its Frost-
proof neighbors and was transported to Auburndale to be
cared for by a bird caretaker. After it learned to fly, it was
taught to hunt and then released to a nature preserve.

Prenatal screenings


help save babies


By Mary Jo Plews
Every baby deserves a healthy
start in life, but the unfortunate re-
ality is that too many babies are
at risk for health problems before
they are even born. Recently,
there has been extensive news
coverage about high infant mor-
tality rates in Florida, a key indica-
tor of a community's health. In
response, the Florida Legislature
has taken strides to reduce infant
mortality, an issue that affects all
Floridians.
Likewise, there is something
that ALL pregnant women and
new moms can do themselves to
help address this issue complete
a Healthy Start Risk Screening
Form.
Since 1991, Healthy Start, a pro-
gram of the Florida Department
of Health, has been encouraging
women who even suspect they
are pregnant to visit their doctor
or health clinic right away to be-
gin early prenatal care and to ask
for and complete a Healthy Start
Prenatal Risk Screening Form.
Healthy Start offers education
and counseling before, during
and after pregnancy and offers
targeted support services that
address identified risks. In 2005,
the program provided voluntary
services to 112,196 women and
70,025 infants.
Completion of the Healthy Start
Prenatal Risk Screening Form is
the first step in linking pregnant
women to services that can help
them have a healthy pregnancy.
The screen is a simple form that
takes just minutes to complete.
Screening results identify risks for
both the mom and newborn. The
results are also the gateway to
learning more about the Healthy
Start program and local resources
that are available to help ensure
babies receive a healthy start. Ev-
ery pregnant woman can benefit
from cimrrpleting. ihe scieerning
+ form.
That was the case for Alicia, an
expectant mom from a married,
dual-income household in Bre-
vard County. She says she didn't
expect to be referred to the pro-
gram because she thought it was
only for low-income women. Af-
ter her screening form was com-
pleted, she was found to have an
existing medical' condition that
increased the chance of having a
low-birth-weight baby. This trig-


gered the referral to the Healthy
Start program and a call from a
program care coordinator.
Alicia says that she didn't know
anything about Healthy Start, and
was surprised by the services
offered to her, including nutri-
tion counseling, information on
breastfeeding and car seat usage,
and resources for finding pediatri-
cians and child health insurance.
The risk screening is a free,
one-page, confidential question-
naire available to all women, re-
gardless of income, designed to
identify factors about a pregnant
woman's health, current living
environment of everyday activi-
ties that may negatively impact a
mom or baby. Ideally, it should
be completed at the first prenatal
visit, though it can also be filled
out during any prenatal care visit.
The real advantage of completing
the screen early is the mom can
learn about risk factors that could
affect her health and the health of
her baby sooner in pregnancy.
We are encouraged by the
state's commitment to reduce in-
fant mortality, but it's also impor-
tant that pregnant women know
about the resources already avail-
able in the community that .are
proven to be effective in address-
ing factors that may result in poor
birth outcomes.
Healthy Start has helped re-
duce the infant mortality rate from
8.9 per 1,000 live births in 1991 to
7.2 in 2005. In addition, the num-
ber of completed immunizations
for two year olds has risen over 20
percent over the last 15 years. The
birth rate among teenage women
ages 15-17 has dropped from 4.4
percent in 1991 to 2.2 percent in
2005 and the percentage of wom-
en beginning prenatal care during
the first trimester rose from 75
percent to 84 percent over a 10-
year period.
We are on the right track. Let's
continue to support lawmakers
as they strive to improve our ma-
ternal and infant care system by
identifying gaps and opportunities
and continue to improve Flori-
da's infant mortality rate. Let's
urge more women to complete
the Healthy Start Prenatal Risk
Screening Form, identify risks and
subsequent community resources
available to them and, most im-
portantly, ensure that all Florida's
babies get a "Healthy Start."

Frostproof News, Thursday, August 9, 2007 3


College expands health programs


Polk Community College will
establish a center in southwest
Lakeland, which will house of-
fices, classrooms and labs used
by PCC's Corporate College and
three Allied Health programs. The
new 25,000 square foot facility is
located in the Lakeland Airside
Center, off of Pipkin Road, just a
short distance from the Polk Park-
way.
PCC has signed a long term
lease with the City of Lakeland,
which will .enable the College to
begin offering classes at the Air-
side Center as early as this fall
with full operation by the spring.
"We are very excited to be ex-
panding into this growing area
of Lakeland. This new site will
enable PCC to provide a higher
level of service for citizens of all of
southwest Polk County," said PCC
President Eileen Holden.
Dr. Holden noted that the facil-
ity is well suited to the needs of


PCC since it previously housed an
educational institution. "I appreci-
ate the cooperation of the City of
Lakeland officials and PCC staff
who worked diligently to final-
ize this agreement. This center is
part of PCC's goal to expand col-
lege offerings to all regions of Polk
County. The Airside Center will
help PCC meet the needs of busi-
ness and health care partners in a
way that will be second to none in
the county," she said.
The Airside Center will be the
intermediate home of PCC's Cor-
porate College while plans are be-
ing developed for the Advanced
Manufacturing and Technology
Center that will be housed at the
Clear Springs Research Park in
Bartow. The Corporate College of-
fers a wide range of educational
and business outreach programs,
including the newly established
Supply Chain Management Insti-
tute.


"The classroom and meeting
facilities at the PCC Airside Cen-
ter campus will enable us to take
the PCC Corporate College to the
next level," said Rob Clancey, di-
rector of Corporate College. He
noted that with the new site be-
ing a short distance from the Polk
Parkway makes it easy to reach
for students and members of the
business community.
In addition to the PCC Corpo-
rate College, the PCC Airside Cen-
ter campus will house three Allied
Health programs: Diagnostic Med-
ical Sonography, Cardio Vascular
Technology and Radiography.
These programs train students
for high paying jobs in the health-
care field. An estimated 150 stu-
dents are annually expected to
enroll in these programs.
"We're very excited with the
benefits this new facility offers for
the Allied Health division," said
Steve Hull, PCC's Lakeland pro-


vost. "For starters, it will enable
us to begin offering two new pro-
grams Cardio Vascular Technol-
ogy and Diagnostic Medical So-
nography- starting this fall. These
will complement our already
strong Radiography program."
In addition to offering expand-
ed classroom space for the medi-
cal programs, Hull said the Air-
side Center also will provide a lab
where students can gain hands-
on experience with modern med-
ical instrumentation that will be
shared by the three programs.
"Our program directors, clini-
cal coordinators and the adjunct
professors from area hospitals
and clinics, who serve as faculty
for our healthcare programs, are
very excited with this new facil-
ity because it will give them the
opportunity to acquaint students
with the latest diagnostic equip-
ment in their fields of study," Hull
concluded.

Safe hunting is 'no accident'


With the dog-days of summer
upon us, it's hard to think about
hunting. But if you're between
the ages of 16 and 31, and haven't
yet taken the state's hunter safety
class now's just the time to be
thinking about it. Many of these
classes, offered statewide, fill up
fast during hunting season while
people scramble to get certified.
Summer months offer smaller
class sizes and make for a better
opportunity for students to attend
because they often have more
free time.
Everyone 16 years old or older
and born after May 31, 1975, must
complete the FWC's hunter safety
requirement before they can buy
a Florida hunting license.
There is an exception though.
A law passed last year allows indi-
viduals to hunt under the supervi-
sion of a licensed hunter, 21 years
old or older, without having to
complete the state's hunter safety
certification.
It's called the "Hunter Safety
Mentoring Exemption" and en-
ables those persons to purchase
a Florida hunting license and hunt
on a one-year trial basis. It's de-
signed to encourage experienced
hunters to teach novice hunters
about our sport and is a great in-
centive for getting more people
to give hunting a try. Individuals
taking advantage of this would
have to pass a hunter safety class
to be eligible to hunt the follow-
ing year.
- If you're a youngster and al-

ready hunt, I suggest you go
ahead and take a hunter safety
class before you turn 16. Of
course, until then, you may hunt
under adult supervision.
You can register for a hunter
safety class by going to MyFWC.
com/huntersafety or by contact-
ing your nearest FWC regional of-
fice. Also, there are two versions
for your convenience.
There's the traditional course,
which is 12 hours of classroom
instruction plus a four-hour "field
day," or you can opt for taking
the online or CD-ROM version at
home. But, you'll still have to sign
up for the "skills day" part.
The traditional course is of-
fered during four weekdays or on
a Saturday/Sunday. If you take it
during the week, each session is
three hours and offered after nor-
mal working hours. On the week-
end, you'll' 'spend eight hours
Saturday and four hours Sunday
morning in the classroom. The
remainder of Sunday you'll move
over to the shooting range to
complete your certification.
The first thing you'll learn
about taking the traditional class


is Florida's many hunting laws.
An FWC law enforcement officer
gives this introduction. Volunteer
hunter safety instructors teach
the remaining curriculum.
You'll be taught ethics, hunter
responsibility, parts of firearms,
various hunting lingo and the
proper way to shoot. You'll dis-
cover the differences between
various bullets, calibers and gaug-
es; how to identify game animals;
and 'learn wildlife conservation
and best management practices
for native species. In addition,
you'll find out about outdoor sur-
vival techniques and learn how to
administer first aid in the field. Ar-
chery and fundamentals of bow
hunting also are taught.
In your last hour in the class-
room, you'll be given a standard-
ized test of true and false and
multiple choice questions. All you
need is to score an 80 percent or
better and you get to move out-
side to the shooting range for the
field day portion.
This part takes about four
hours. During that time you'll get
to shoot clay pigeons with a shot-
gun, practice your archery skills
and target practice with a .22-
caliber rifle. You'll also receive a
muzzleloader demonstration,
where you'll have the chance to
shoot one if you'd like. All guns,
bows, targets and ammo are pro-
vided. All you have to do is take
aim.
After you complete the field
day, you'll be given your hunter


safety card. At that point you can
purchase a Florida hunting li-
cense, and get ready for opening
day.
If you choose to take the hunt-
er safety class online or by CD-
ROM, you'll learn all of the above-
mentioned material and be given
a practice test to prepare you for
the last segment the skills day.
Saturday skill days take about
five hours to complete. You'll
learn much of what is taught dur-
ing the traditional course, includ-
ing hunting laws and ethics, how
to handle firearms safely, when
to take a shot and where to take
aim. Then you'll get to shoot on
the range and be given the same
standardized test.
Register today to take a hunter
safety class 'cause the 2007-08
hunting season's just around the
corner. Remember safe hunting
is NO accident!

20 minutes of your day is
the time spent reading
with your child from
birth to age nine.



Is your teen ready for more responsibility?


One of the hardest things for
many parents to deal with is the
demand for more freedoms from
their children growing into teen-
agers. After years of making most
of your child's decisions and put-
ting your child's needs first, you
find yourself confronting a young
adult who wants the freedom to
face more of the world on his or
her own.
At some level, of course, we
all recognize that our teenag-
ers need increasing amounts of
freedom and responsibility. It's a
natural part of the developmental
process.
At the same time, we realize
there are very real reasons to go
slow in allowing our teens more
freedoms. Constant news reports
and local stories of teen substance
abuse, pregnancies, violence and
much more naturally make us


The

Counseling

Corner
From the American
Counseling Association

worry about the world our teen
is facing.
But when we constantly say
"no" to our teens' requests, try-
ing to protect and shield them
just a little longer, the result is of-
ten family conflict, with our teen-
ager pulling away and no longer
confiding in us, or. going behind
our backs seeking the desired
freedom.
While there is no magic cure,
there are steps you can take to


minimize the conflict. One is sim-
ply to improve communications.
Sit down with your teen and
try to explain your fears and anxi-
eties related to granting increased
freedoms. While hearing about
your worries may not win your
teen's, full acceptance or under-
standing, it can open up mean-
ingful dialogues that can lead to
acceptable compromises.
The next step is to allow in-
creasing amounts of freedom
and responsibilities-- opportuni;
ties for your teenager to prove he
or she really is ready to be more
independent.
How much can you trust?
How much responsibility should
you grant? There are no abso-
lute answers, just judgment calls
'you have to make based on your
teen's personality and past per-
formance.


Yes, mistakes will be made,
but also note that most of the
time things will turn out just fine.
Try to understand that this is also
a difficult and often confusing
process for your teen.
Your decisions are still going to
worry you and upset your teen at
times, but when you make a con-
scious effort to allow increased
levels of freedom and responsi-
bility, while also' fairly measuring
how well your teen handles the
changes, you should find that
the struggles with your teenager
should begin to diminish.

Saving dinner: Your skillet can be the answer


As the summer months drone
on, food done on the grill begins
to lose a bit of its savor. Not that
we don't love the smoky flavor
of chicken grilled just right or the
ease of accomplishment mak-
ing veggie kabobs at the same
time. But sometimes you've had
enough of the grill and yearn to
be back in the kitchen, instead
of outside batting away mosqui-
toes while toiling away over a hot
grill.
If the dog days of summer
have arrived at your house and
you're ready for a meal made in
your own kitchen, then try some
delicious skillet pasta dishes. I
adore the simplicity of stovetop
cooking, especially pasta. You've
got one pot for pasta (and the
water is heating while you make
the sauce) and a skillet for the

sauce, in which you'll add the
freshly cooked pasta later. Gather
together a gorgeous summer
salad and you've got a delicious
dinner everyone will love.
Here's a favorite recipe at my
house:

Greek Shrimp Pasta
Serves 4
1 pound raw medium shrimp,


shelled, deveined and cleaned
4 cloves garlic, pressed
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 ounces crumbled feta cheese
6 green onions, finely chopped
4 teaspoons fresh oregano leaves,
minced
5 fresh tomatoes cored, seeded
and coarsely chopped
Salt and freshly ground pepper to
taste
1 pound linguine freshly cooked
and drained
In a large mixing bowl, com-
bine feta, green onions, oregano,
tomatoes and salt and pepper to
taste. Let mixture stand at room
temperature for at least one hour
(this is prime time to get the salad
made, table set and water boiling

for the pasta).
In a skillet, add the butter and
olive oil and heat over medium
high heat. Add the garlic and stir
till starting to brown, then add the
shrimp, toss together and remove
from heat once shrimp turn pink.
To the shrimp mixture, add
the pasta, toss together, then top
with the feta cheese mixture and
enjoy!

Fish kills common,



should be reported


Reports of dead fish, ranging
from a few to hundreds of thou-
sands, have prompted dozens of
calls per week to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) this summer.
Apprehensive callers to the
FWC's Fish Kill Hotline worry
something must be terribly
wrong; others just want to know
the causes.
Fortunately, the mechanism
at the root of most summertime
fish kills in brackish estuaries,
freshwater lakes and man-made
retention ponds is well under-
stood by scientists. Ironically, a
lack of sunshine in the Sunshine
State is where problems begin.
The process starts with over-
cast skies, hot summer days and
rainy weather. Low water levels,
brought on by drought, add to
the mix.
Most of the oxygen fish
breathe is created when water-
borne microscopic plants use
sunlight to produce and add
dissolved oxygen to the water,
a process known as photosyn-
thesis. But when overcast skies
persist for several days, there
is often not enough sunlight to
power the oxygen-making pro-
cess that supports fish life.
Heavy rain and wind from
thunderstorms adds to the prob-
lem by stirring up bottom sedi-
ments that muddy the water,
further reducing sunlight pen-
etration in the water column.
Rainwater runoff also washes
large amounts of decaying plant
and animal material into the wa-
ter body. In the decay process,
bacteria use dissolved oxygen in
the water to break down plant
and animal matter, further drop-


ping oxygen levels.
"If these conditions persist,
and dissolved oxygen levels drop
for extended periods, fish suffo-
cate," said Jeff Willitzer, FWC
fisheries biologist.
In short, during extended pe-
riods of overcast, rainy or cloudy
weather, the biological system
uses dissolved oxygen faster than
it can produce it. Heavy weather
aggravates the situation by creat-
ing and intensifying all the con-
ditions that lower dissolved oxy-
gen levels in the water.
The good news is that most
water bodies don't suffer repeat
performances every year. In fact,
most water bodies go years with-
out suffering a major fish kill.
"In spite of summer fish kills,
most Florida lakes are in relative-
ly healthy shape and fish popu-
lations remain stable. Angling
success generally is not affected
over the long haul, even after
events that might appear seri-
ous to the untrained eye," said
Mr. Willitzer, who is also an avid
angler.
Still, it's important for biolo-
gists like Mr. Willitzer to keep
track of the location and extent
of fish kills in natural lakes and
estuaries to see if there are seri-
ous problems developing in an
ecosystem that might require
investigation or restorative mea-
sures.
Floridians can report fish kills
in natural water bodies to the
FWC's Fish Kill Hotline at 1-800-
636-0511, the FWC's Lakeland
office at (863) 648-3200 or on-
line at MyFWC.com by clicking
on "Contact FWC." It is not nec-
essary to report fish kills in man-
made retention ponds.
