fund more than $13.8 million to
its customers. The Commission
determined the utility company
that serves more than 1.5 mil-

.excessive fuel costs from 2003
to 2005.
Following a careful analysis
of the evidence presented and
much debate, the Commis-
sion determined that Progress


should have started purchas-
ing coal from the Powder River
Basin (PRB) in southeast Mon-
tana and northeast Wyoming
beginning in 2003. PRB coal is
relatively low in cost, has low
sulfur content, and is a reliable
supply. If the shift to PRB coal
had been made, consumers
would have saved considerable
expense.

host two public meetings in the


next few weeks to invite pub-

Heat brings health dangers


When the dog days of sum-
mer deliver hot temperatures
and high humidity, the Ameri-
can Red Cross urges residents
to take precautions against the
heat.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention,
approximately 400 Americans
die each year due to summer's
sweltering heat. Furthermore,
the National Weather Service
asserts that excessive heat was
the number one weather-relat-
ed killer, causing more fatalities
per year than floods, lightning,
tornadoes, hurricanes, winter
storms and extreme cold from
1994 to 2003.
Everyone is at risk when
temperatures rise above 90
degrees but the elderly and the
very young are most suscep-
tible to heat and heat-related
illnesses. Heat-related illnesses
can cause serious injury and
even death if unattended. Signs
of heat-related illnesses include


nausea, dizziness, flushed or
pale skin, heavy sweating and
headaches. Victims of heat-re-
lated illness should be moved
to a cool place, given cool
water to drink and ice packs
or cool wet cloths should be
applied to the skin. If a victim
refuses water, vomits or loses
consciousness, call 9-1-1 or
your local emergency number
immediately.
"At the Red Cross, our main
goal is to help prevent emer-
gencies by educating our com-
munity on how they can protect
themselves and their families
from heat-related illness," said
Phil Attinger, Public Relations
Director for the American Red
Cross Polk County Chapter.
Red Cross
Heat Safety Tips
Dress for the heat. Wear
lightweight, light-colored cloth-
ing. Light colors will reflect


away some of the sun's energy.
It is also a good idea to wear
hats or to use an umbrella.
Drink water. Carry water
or juice with you and drink
continuously even if you do not
feel thirsty. Avoid alcohol and
caffeine, which dehydrate the
body. Avoid using salt tablets
unless directed to do so by a
physician.
Eat small meals and eat
more often. Avoid high-protein
foods, which increase meta-
bolic heat.
Slow down. Avoid strenu-
ous activity. If you must do
strenuous activity, do it dur-
ing the coolest part of the day,
which is usually in the morning
between 4 and 7 a.m.
Stay indoors when pos-
sible. If air-conditioning is not
available, stay on the lowest
floor out of the sunshine. Re-
member that electric fans do

not cool, they simply circulate the
air.
Be a good neighbor. During
heat waves, check in on elderly
residents in your neighborhood
and those who do not have air
conditioning.
Learn Red Cross first aid and
CPR. While the above tips can
help prevent emergencies, it is
crucial to know what to do if an
emergency situation arises.
Know what these heat-
related terms mean
Heat cramps: Heat cramps
are muscular pains and spasms
due to heavy exertion. Although
heat cramps are the least severe,
they are an early signal that the
body is having trouble with the
heat.
Heat exhaustion: Heat ex-
haustion typically occurs when
people exercise heavily or work
in a hot, humid place where
body fluids are lost through heavy
sweating. Blood flow to the skin
increases, causing blood flow to
decrease to the vital organs. This
results in a form of mild shock. If
not treated, the victim may suffer
heat stroke. Signals of heat ex-
haustion include cool, moist, pale
flushed or red skin; heavy sweat-
ing; headache; nausea or vomit-
ing; dizziness; and exhaustion.
Body temperature will be near
normal.
Heat stroke: Also known as
sunstroke, heatstroke islife-threat-
ening. The victim's temperature
control system, which produces
sweating to cool the body, stops
working. The body temperature
can rise so high that brain dam-
age and death may result if the
body is not cooled quickly. Sig-
nals include hot, red and dry skin;
changes in consciousness; rapid,
weak pulse; and rapid, shallow
breathing. Body temperature can
be very high-sometimes as high
as 1050 F.

General Care for
heat emergencies
Heat cramps or heat exhaus-
tion: Get the person to a cooler


place and have him or her rest
in a comfortable position. If the
person is fully awake and alert,
give half a glass of cool water
every 15 minutes. Do not let him
or her drink too quickly. Do not
give liquids that contain alcohol
or caffeine.
Remove or loosen tight cloth-
ing and apply cool, wet cloths,
such as towels or sheets. Call 9-1-
1 or the local emergency number
if the person refuses water, vom-
its or loses consciousness.
Heat stroke: Heat stroke is a
life-threatening situation! Help is
needed fast. Call 9-1-1 or your lo-
cal emergency number. Move the
person to a cooler place. Quickly
cool the body. Immerse victim in
a cool bath, or wrap wet sheets
around the body and fan it. Watch
for signals of breathing problems.
Keep the person lying down and
continue to cool the body any
way you can. If the victim refuses
water or is vomiting or there are
changes in the level of conscious-
ness, do not give anything to eat
or drink.

safety, contact your local Ameri-
can Red Cross:

The American Red Cross
helps people prevent, prepare
for and respond to emergencies.
Last year, almost a million vol-
unteers and 35,000 employees
helped victims of almost 75,000
disasters; taught lifesaving skills
to millions; and helped U.S. ser-
vice members separated from
their families stay connected. Al-
most 4 million people gave blood
through the Red Cross, the larg-
est supplier of blood and blood
products in the United States. The
American Red Cross is part of the
International Red Cross and Red
Crescent Movement. An average
of 91 cents of every dollar the
Red Cross spends is invested in
humanitarian services and pro-
grams. The Red Cross is not a
government agency; it relies on
donations of time, money, and
blood to do its work.

Hospice plans children's


'Back to School Bash'


LAKELAND, Fla. The start
of school is getting close, and
children across Polk, Highlands
and Hardee counties are getting
ready to hit the books.
As a sendoff to summer, the
Bethany Center of Good Shep-
herd Hospice is planning a "Back
to School Bash" on Saturday,
Aug. 25, at the Main Street Baptist
Church, 1140 East Main Street in
Bartow. The free event runs from
11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is open to all
children who have attended the
Bethany Center programs, Camp
Brave Heart or families who want
to learn more about Good Shep-
herd Hospice grief support ser-
vices. Children from across Polk,
Highlands and Hardee counties
are invited to attend, along with
Bethany Center and Camp Brave
Heart volunteers;
"Our 'Back to School Bash'
is a reunion for the children and
volunteers who have taken part
in Good Shepherd Hospice be-
reavement programs," said Ally-
son Moskowitz, Good Shepherd
Hospice bereavement manager.
"This is a day that children and
volunteers can share memories
and catch up with one another
before they get wrapped up in
school activities."
A waterslide, games and
clowns are just some of the fun
events planned for the "Back
to School Bash." Lunch will be
served and snow cones will help
everyone cool off.
The Good Shepherd Hospice
"Back to School Bash" is free;


however, registration is required
and one parent or guardian must
also attend. Call 863-802-0456 to
register in Polk County. Call 863-
402-1066 to register in Highlands
and Hardee counties.
The Bethany Center of Good
Shepherd Hospice addresses the
unique grief needs of children and
teens who have experienced the
death of a loved one by offering
bereavement support for children
ages 6 to 17. Through specialized
programs, children receive sup-
port and learn how to cope with
their grief. All support programs
offered through the Bethany Cen-
ter are free, and participants need
not have used Good Shepherd
Hospice programs in the past.
Good Shepherd Hospice em-
braces its mission to make the
most of life by relieving the suffer-
ing of patients and their families
affected by life-limiting illnesses
or end-of-life issues. The orga-
nization is a community-based,
not-for-profit hospice that has
been a part of Polk, Hardee and
Highlands counties since 1979.
Good Shepherd is the only local
agency offering hospice programs
accredited by the Joint Com-
mission, which sets the national
standards for healthcare accredi-
tation. Community bereavement
programs offered by Good Shep-
herd Hospice are funded in part
by United Way of Central Florida.

Ag Institute meeting explores emerging technologies


MAITLAND Download-
ing podcasts and checking blogs
may not be standard practices
for farmers, but that may soon
change. As more people rely on
the internet to gather informa-
tion, receive news and express
opinions, internet-based "social
media" technologies offer unique
opportunities for agricultural or-
ganizations to connect with an in-
creasingly non-farm public, both
as customers and to convey key
messages about the industry.
These technologies will be the


focus of the Agriculture Institute
of Florida's 2007 Annual Meeting,
set for Wednesday, Oct. 10, at the
Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront
Resort in Daytona Beach. Josh
Hallett of hyku, LLC, an inter-
nationally recognized expert on
new media communication tech-
nologies, will serve as this year's
keynote speaker. For over 10
years, Mr. Hallett has worked with
public relations practitioners and
corporate communicators world-
wide on integrating these tools
into their organization's public


and media relations strategies.
"So much of what we do in
our business depends on how
information is shared," explained
AIF president Heather Nedley,
who also serves as the director
of the Polk County Farm Bureau.
"Those methods of communi-
cation seem to change daily, so
we look forward to Josh sharing
his expertise on emerging me-
dia trends." The Ag Institute will
also unveil plans for a multi-year
communications campaign, em-
phasizing agriculture's economic


value to the state and highlight-
ing the industry's environmental
stewardship, and will present the
first-ever AIF "AG-Vocate" award,
recognizing an outstanding
spokesperson on behalf of agri-
culture. The meeting will be held
from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and
includes lunch. Seating is limited
and reservations are required. For
registration information, contact
Betsy McGill at (863) 675-2144
or email info@aginstitute.org.
This year's AIF meeting is be-


ing held in conjunction with the
Florida Farm Bureau Federation's
Annual Meeting. Those attend-
ing the Ag Institute annual meet-
ing are also invited to attend the
Florida Farm Bureau conference.
For more information, visit http://
FloridaFarmBureau.org floridafarmbureau.org/> The Ag
Institute Annual Meeting is also
a great way for folks who are at-
tending the Farm Bureau Annual
Meeting to increase their under-
standing of new media.


Since 1970, the Agriculture
Institute of Florida has been dedi-
cated to promoting the value of
Florida agriculture and empower-
ing producers to work effectively
with the media and the public.
The Ag Institute is a volunteer
organization comprised of com-
munications professionals and
individual members from private
companies, agricultural associa-
tions and farms throughout the
state. For more on AIF, visit www.

Regional water shortage continues


Water resource models devel-
S oped by the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
based on 41 years of hydrologic
data indicate an increased prob-
ability that South Florida residents
will face a continued regional wa-
ter shortage through November,
which is the beginning of the next
dry season. Unless the remain-
der of the wet season brings suf-
ficient rainfall to replenish Lake
Okeechobee, which hit record
lows this summer, the SFWMD
would experience back-to-back
water shortage years for the first
time since the early 1980s.
Despite above average July
rainfall across most of the SFW-
MD, the Lake Okeechobee basin
has received only 18.29 inches of
rain from Jan. 1 through Aug. 8 --
about 67 percent of the historical,
year-to-date average. This repre-
sents nearly a nine inch rainfall
deficit for the year.
As a result, Lake Okeechobee
water levels for this time of year
are the lowest on record and ex-
treme water shortage conditions
persist in the Everglades Agricul-
tural Area and in portions of Hen-
dry, Glades, Okeechobee, Martin
and western Palm Beach coun-
ties. These areas remain in full
Phase III water restrictions.
Due to below average rainfall
and subsequent low groundwater
levels in the District's Lower West
Coast, full Phase II restrictions
remain in place for Lee and por-
tions of Collier, Hendry, Glades
and Charlotte counties.
"Vith,. persistently low
groundwater and surface water
levels 'in' many areas, stages in
Lake Okeechobee will determine
whether the regional water short-
+ age will continue into the next dry
season," said SFWMD Governing
Board Chairman Eric Buermann.
"Ayear ago, the water level in Lake
Okeechobee was nearly three feet
higher thin it'is today and South
*'Si *


Florida subsequently experienced
one the most severe water short-
ages in its history. With no guar-
antees of above average rainfall
to replenish the system, we must
continue to manage our personal
water use wisely and be proactive
with conservation."
By far the largest water body
in South Florida's water manage-
ment system, Lake Okeechobee
provides a substantial portion of
the dry season recharge for Mon-
roe, Miami-Dade, Broward and
eastern Palm Beach counties.
Limited storage capacity in these
densely populated areas forces
reliance on the lake as a back-
up source of water during dry
periods, when residential water
demands typically increase and
outpace system-replenishing rain-
fall. The South Florida dry season
usually begins in November and
continues through May, with lake
levels normally rising during the
wet season and falling during the
dry season.
The District's water resource
models provide a "position analy-
sis," which is a projection of future
conditions based on historical
precedents. Conducted monthly,
the position analysis considers
daily water levels, rainfall and
evaporation/transpiration rates
over a 41-year period of record
from 1965 to 2005. Beginning
with the lake elevation on August
1, 2007, which at 9.20 feet above
sea level was the lowest lake
stage ever recorded on that date,
the latest Lake Okeechobee pro-
jections found that during most of
the 41 years, the lake stage would
not have reached an acceptable
water level by the start of the sub-
sequent dry season.
"The position analysis is just
one of the tools in our tool box
and while no forecasting method
can predict the future, historical
data plays an important role in
water management," added SF-


WMD Executive Director Carol
Ann Wehle. "We know what the
lake level is today and what the
historical record shows, so based
on that data, we can say with a
fair degree of certainty how the
lake is likely to behave. Because
Lake Okeechobee is such a
strong indicator of regional water
supply conditions, this tool helps
us make informed water manage-
ment decisions and plan for the
future."
According to SFWMD meteo-
rologists, July 2007 produced 8.67
inches of District-wide rainfall,
the area's wettest July since 2001
and second wettest since 1991.
The National Weather Service has
predicted an increased likelihood
of above normal rainfall for South
Florida through October 2007.
However, a developing La Nina
weather pattern in the Pacific
Ocean suggests a likelihood of
below normal rainfall during the
next dry season. If the current re-
cord low Lake Okeechobee levels
continue into the dry season and
should the La Nina weather pat-
tern result in a drier than normal
dry season, severe water shortag-
es could occur during the winter
months.
The SFWMD continues to en-
courage both residential and ag-
ricultural water users throughout
the District to voluntarily reduce
water consumption and observe
normal water conservation prac-
tices. Water managers also have
initiated a rule development pro-
cess to create and implement
a comprehensive Year-Round
Water Conservation Program
District-wide. The program will
include substantial private sector
involvement, focusing predomi-
nantly on water-wise landscape
irrigation, to ensure the long-term
sustainability of the region's wa-
ter resources, increase water use
efficiency and curtail wasteful wa-
ter use practices.
