Don't get to comfy, hurricane season not over yet


National Hurricane
Survival Initiative
offers survival tips

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Fifteen
years ago, Hurricane Andrew
ravaged Florida, striking as a
catastrophic Category 5. In all,
Andrew caused 15 deaths di-
rectly, 25 deaths indirectly and
.: i~.0-tiilo'n in property damage,
making it the costliest disaster
in U.S history at the time.
Since then, no other named
storm has made landfall at this
magnitude that is until, this
past Tuesday when Hurricane
Dean pounded the Caribbean
coast at 165 mph. Fortunately,
despite its powerful impact,
Dean landed in a sparsely pop-
ulated area and no lives were
lost.
With several months still
remaining in the 2007 Hurri-
cane Season, these devastating
events should serve as a re-
minder to residents who live in
hurricane-vulnerable areas, that
preparation is the key to saving
lives and property. History often
shows the final months of hur-


ricane season bring the most
hurricane activity.
Partners with the National
Hurricane Survival Initiative
(NHSI) today encourage all
residents to remain vigilant
in the coming months. As we
have seen in the past', when 'a
hurricane does strike, a lack
of personal preparation and
awareness can lead to more
devastation.
"While no major storms have
hit the US coast this season, we
cannot let our guard down,"
said Major Steve Hedgren of The
Salvation Army. "Every resident
in a coastal area should know
the risks associated with a ma-
jor storm and make common
sense preparations. Now is a
good time to review your disas-.
ter plan with family members
and to recheck or restock your
emergency survival kit with no
less than three days worth of
food, water and medicine. And
for those who haven't prepared
at all, it is not too late.".
At the start of hurricane sea-
son, the NHSI released alarming
statistics from a Mason-Dixon
poll, which revealed a danger-
ously high percentage of resi-


dents in hurricane-prone states
were unprepared, didn't take
the threat of hurricanes serious-
ly and were uninformed about
the real.risks. hurricanes pose
to our homes and families. Poll
results confirmed:
52% have no family disas-
ter plan,
53% don't feel vulnerable
to a hurricane or related torna-
do or flooding, .
.. .61% have no hurricane
survival kit,
88% have taken no steps to
make their homes stronger,
And 16% said they might
not or would not evacuate even
if ordered to do so, leaving thou-
sands of residents at grave risk
in the path of any given storm.
"We are at the height of hur-
ricane' season," said Rob Fee,
Plylox president. "The time to
prepare for hurricane is not
when a storm is approaching.
And, for those of us who can
fend for ourselves, it is our per-
sonal responsibility to be pre-
pared and stock-up way in ad-
vance of a hurricane watch or
warning."
Emergency.officials recom-
mend taking steps to strengthen


your home or business before
storm season begins. The poll
found that residents wait too
long to make last-minute prepa-
rations to their structures.
One in four people indicat-
ed they would not begin to pre-
pare their home until hurricane
conditions were 24 to 36 hours
away. Hurricane watch.
One in five said they would
not prepare their home until
hurricane conditions were::ex-
pected within 24 houri~i.Hurri-
cane warning.
The NHSI is a public educa-
tion and safety outreach partner-
ship that includes the National
Hurricane Center, FEMA, The
National Emergency Manage-
ment Association, The Salvation
Army and the State of North
Carolina. 'Corporate partners
in the project include Plylox,
Travelers and AT&T. The public
safety campaign features an in-
formative and interactive Web
site, www.HurricaneSafety.org,
public service announcements
and a 30-minute television pro-
gram reminding people to take
the proper steps in advance to
protect their families, pets and
homes.


The Counseling Corner


Learn to disagree fairly with your loved ones


By the American
Counseling Association
Of course you love your
spouse, (or children, parents or
best friend). Of course you would
never want to fight or argue with
any of them. And, of course, those
are exactly the people with whom
you have the most arguments.
No, you probably aren't con-
stantly fighting with each other
(though if that is the case, go
talk to a counseling profes-
sional, because that's not how
relationships with those we care
about are supposed to work),
but even the best of relation-
ships are going to have disagree-
ments and misunderstandings.
Working through those mo-
ments honestly and fairly can
help strengthen a relationship for.
both parties, but make disagree-
ing an' emotional shouting match
and you can easily do real dam-
age to an important relationship.
Instead, try these tips for dis-
agreeing without causing harm-
ing?
Remember your goal is to


solve the problem, not "win"
the argument.
Don't let anger be your first
reaction. When anger clouds
judgment it's easy to insult and
disrespect the other person,
resulting in an emotional fight
rather, than an attempt to deal
with the issue.
*Don't let misunderstanding
be the basis for the argument.
If you think you've been misun-
derstood, ask the other person
to tell you what he or she heard
you saying. Simply restating what
you really meant may straighten
things out.
Listen to the other person's
side and make sure you really
understand his or her position.
We can be just as guilty of not
understanding, or sometimes
not even hearing, the other side
of the argument.
Be sincere and open. Don't
resort to code words and innu-
endo which will only confuse
meanings. Say what you mean,
but say it respectfully;
Stick to real issues those
things that really can be fixed.


Launching a personal attack on
the other person, focusing on
emotional issues, or dragging up
past problems and events will
do nothing to solve the current
problem.
Disagreements with loved
ones happen, but that doesn't
mean you both don't.still love
and respect each other. Dis-
cussing problems openly and in
detail can often lead to a solu-
tion, but. even when it doesn't,
it's important to remember that
the relationship itself is always

marking a formal induction to
an office. Collegiate presiden-

Submitted photo/Tom Dowling-PCC
Dr. Eileen Holden
the United States in the 17th
century and established the
custom of formally acknowl-
edging a change in leadership
at a school's highest level. The


inauguration of Dr. Holden of-
fers the community a special
opportunity to unite in com-
mon purpose, to reflect on the
past, and to envision a bright
future.
The Inauguration Commit-
tee, co-chaired by PCC Trustee

Director Tracy Porter, is com-
mitted to hosting an event that
will be reflective of Dr. Hold-
en's personality and inclusive
leadership style.
The event also provides an
opportunity for faculty, staff,
alumni, college stakeholders,
and the community to support
PCC students by the establish-
ment of scholarships one in
Eileen Holden's name. There
are three opportunities to sup-
port students: The Dr. Eileen
Holden Endowed Scholarship,


the Greater Lake Wales Schol-
arship Initiative and the Dis-
tinguished Alumni Endowed
Scholarship.
"The Inauguration Commit-
tee and I are passionate about
using this occasion to raise
funds to establish endowed
scholarships that will benefit
PCC students in perpetuity," Dr.
Holden said. "It is truly an hon-
or to serve as the fourth presi-
dent of PCC. I am thrilled that
members of our community
are celebrating with us through
their participation and pres-
ence at the scheduled events."
All events are free and open
to the public, but reservations

Simple tips can help everyone conserve more water


Remember the quote from
'The Rime of the Ancient Mari-
ner' by Samuel Taylor Coleridge,
"Water, water everywhere, nor
any a drop to drink?" The an-
cient mariner was stuck in the
middle of.the ocean, so all the
water around him was salty and
not fit for consumption.
With more than 700 freshwa-
ter springs, 1,350 miles of coast-
line and 50,000 miles of rivers
and streams, water is just about
everywhere in Florida. Two
months ago, however, Florida
experienced the worst case of
wildfires since 1998 while the
period from November 2005 to
March 2007 ranked as the third
driest period in recorded his-
tory. With drought conditions
occurring throughout much of
the state, it is important that
each of us do our part to con-
serve water.
How much difference can an
individual make when it comes


to conserving water? With pre-
dictions of water use in Florida
increasing from 7,551 million
gallons a day (mgd) in 2005 to
more than 9,200 mgd in 2025,
every little bit saved can help.
Although, it really isn't just a
little bit when it's all added up.
A family of two
adults and one child,
practicing water
conservation can save:
* 20 gallons per day -- for every
leaky faucet that is repaired.
* 500 to 800 gallons per month -
- installing water-saving shower
heads or flow restrictors.
* 700 gallons per month --
shortening shower time by just
one or two minutes.
* 200 to 300 gallons a month
-- catching the water that runs
while heating a shower in a
container for other uses.


* Three gallons a day -- turning
off the water while shaving.
* 200 to 300 gallons a month --
keeping a bottle of drinking wa-
ter in the refrigerator instead of
letting water run cool from the
tap, and
* 500 to 1,500 gallons each
month -- setting lawn mower
blades one notch higher to pro-
duce less evaporation.
Other simple ways to
save water around our
homes include:
* Landscaping with native and
drought resistant plants.
* Watering lawns during early
morning or evening hours when
temperatures are lowest.
* Avoiding over fertilizing which
increases the need for water,
and
* Using mulch to retain mois-
ture in the soil.


Low-interest loans help improve wells


Certain low to moderate in-
come individuals or families
in Florida may be eligible for
money to construct, repair or
improve household water well
systems through one percent
interest loans from the Foun-
dation for Affordable Drinking
Water.
Florida is the latest state to
be added to those served by
the loan program created by
the foundation, which was es-
tablished through the National
Ground Water Association.
Qualified applicants can bor-
row up to $8,000 at one percent
interest for a term not to exceed
20 years. To qualify, households
must:
Own the home and use it
as the principal residence;
Have as the primary drink-



ing water source an individual
household well system located
on the property of the home;
Must meet income and
other eligibility requirements;
and,
Be located in a city, town,
or unincorporated area with a
population of less than 50,000.
The foundation will not un-
derwrite a loan once a project is
underway or has been complet-
ed. Most new home construc-
tion projects are not eligible.
Another important aspect
of the loan program is to edu-
cate loan recipients on the im-
portance of regular well main-
tenance and annual testing of
their well system.
Complete information, in-
cluding application forms and
requirements and income eligi-


ability limits, can be accessed by
going to www.ngwa.org and
clicking on the link for the Foun-
dation for Affordable Drinking
Water. Applications and ad-
ditional information can also
be obtained by contacting the
foundation at (800) 551-7379,
(614) 898-7791, ext. 544, or by
mailing Peg Leach at pleach@
ngwa.org. You also can learn
more about the program by
going to www.wellowner.org
and clicking on "Financing."
"Water is essential, and the
Foundation is committed to
helping those in greatest need,"
said Paul Humes, foundation di-
rector. "If you have a real need
and meet the qualifications for
this program, we encourage
you to apply."


Crop disaster assistance deadlines change


GAINESVILLE -- The U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture's Farm
Service Agency (FSA) has an-
nounced FSA is now able to set
application closing dates for its
Noninsured Crop Disaster As-
sistance Program (NAP) based
on geographic regions, said
Kevin L. Kelly, Florida FSA State
Executive Director.
"The changes in dates will
allow producers to report their
crops in a timelier manner with-
out having to guess what kind
of crops they will be planting in
advance," said Mr. Kelley. The
state's NAP regions will be split
into three areas: North, Central
and South.
This change also requires
changes in the National Crop


Table with regards to NAP ap-
plication closing dates.
The first crop to have an ap-
plication closing date change
for 2008 is okra. Okra will have
an application closing date of
Dec. 31, 2007, for the North and
Central regions and Nov. 30,
2007, for the Southern region.
These changes apply to the
2008 crop year.
NAP provides financial as-
sistance to producers of non-in-
surable crops when low yields,
loss of inventory or prevented
planting occur due to natural
disasters.
Eligible producers must ap-
ply for coverage of non-insur-
able crops using Form CCC-471,
"Application for Coverage," and


pay the applicable service fees
at their local FSA office. The
application and service fees
must be filed by the application
closing date as established by
the producer's FSA state com-
mittee. The service fee is the
lesser of $100 per crop or $300
per producer per administrative
county, not to exceed a total of
$900 per producer with farming
interest in multiple counties.
Limited resource producers
may request a waiver of service
fees.
For more information on
NAP or other disaster assistance
programs, visit FSA online at
http://www.fsa.usda.gov.


By making just minor chang-
es in our day-to-day routines,
we can all help conserve the
water that defines our quality
of life.

tion tips, visit www.dep.state.

Those 'little bits' sure can add up to a lot


We all know how just, "a
little bit" can add up. The im-
pact of doing "a little bit" can
mean the difference between a
neat or cluttered home. It can
also influence your job perfor-
mance and even help you con-
nect more successfully with
family and friends. A little bit
can really add up.
But there is a juxtaposi-
tion that needs to be looked at
when it comes to a "little bit".
It's thinking that "a little bit
won't hurt" when it comes to
eating. A little bit of dessert. A
little bit of a second serving. It's
those "little bits" of whatever in
the food department of life that
will get you into a pair of elastic
waist pants faster than you can
say Krispy Kreme. Just that "lit-
tle bit" can push you over the
edge of.what you need and give
you an extra size or two before
you realize it. Think of it this
way...if a bathtub is full and
to capacity, it only takes a few
drops to make it overflow onto
the floor. Everything has its lim-
it and our intake on calories be-
fore we start increasing in girth
is certainly no exception.

You can easily gain 15
pounds a year by eating only an
extra 150 calories a day. That's
one dress size. 150 calories is
nothing in the scheme of things
(a couple of cookies), but when
we're talking about Body Clut-
ter, it's a cumulative thing and
if you've ever asked anyone,
"Does my butt look big in this?"
then you KNOW exactly what
I'm talking about.
Here's the cool thing. You
can also LOSE 15 pounds in a
year by simply losing 150 calo-
ries a day. That's not a lot of
calories, honest. 150 calories
is a can of soda. Replace the
soda drinking with water drink-
ing and not only will you effort-
lessly lose 15 pounds (and one


dress size) in a year, but you'll
also have clearer, more radiant
skin to show for it. See how
easy.it is to babystep your way
to a healthier lifestyle?
To do this, you need to know
how much you are consum-
ing. I strongly suggest you take
advantage of a free site, called
fitday.com and start plugging
in your numbers. If you're any-
thing like me, you'll be shocked
at how many calories you are
taking in! Once you know, you
can adjust your intake accord-
ingly.
The key to losing Body Clut-
ter is knowing what's going'
in so you can have an idea of
what you need to do to get it
going out (movement; exer-
cise). Let's keep going forward
and remember' our motto for
this year, "Progress, not Perfec-
tion."
And while we're. reaching
our goals, don't forget to use
the tools you need to get there.
Healthy eating is critical! Here
is a recipe that will help you
achieve a healthier "bottom
line"-


Don't drive around in a fog


What happens to us is that
when we get overwhelmed our
brains keep trying to play catch
up and in the process, this brain
frenzy short circuits our actions.
Now don't get me wrong, we
are working like crazy but we.
don't seem to be accomplish-
ing much because we are try-
ing to do too much too fast.
We can even feel the CHAOS
start to build. So why don't we
stop the avalanche before it
comes sliding down on top of
us! It is because we think if we
just keep juggling we can keep
all those balls in the air. We are
not perfect and let's face'it; we
are never going to be. But that
is just fine with me. I don't have
to be perfect to be loved. My
home does not have to be per-
fect to be lived in. Housework
done incorrectly still blesses my
family. I can do anything for 15
minutes! What doesn't matter
just doesn't matter!
When you feel the pressure
start to mount then that is the
time to let off some of the steam
so you will not explode and the
avalanche suffocate you! I can
hear you now! "HOW DO I DO
THAT??"
Let me tell you what I
do when I start to feel over-
whelmed. I stop dead in my
tracks when I first realize that I
am beginning to feel antsy and
SIT DOWN!
Then I take a few deep
breaths and get out a piece of
paper. Automatically my heart
rate slows down and that antsy
feeling sLfbsides. The reason it
is hard for us to recognize that
we are feeling overwhelmed
is because we have been liv-

ing on adrenaline most of our
lives. We have to practice slow-
ing down when we feel antsy
instead of speeding up! Think
of it this way. You are going to
love this one.
When you are driving and,
you see a problem way up
ahead; do you drive faster to
get there quicker. No you slow
down and become .more cau-
tious. Imagine that all of a sud-
den you are driving in a fog and
you can't see where you are
going. You have to slow down.
Now you can't just stop (crawl
in bed) on the highway be-
cause there will be major pile
up (the house will fall apart).
You have to proceed slowly and
cautiously; being aware of ev-
erything going on around you.
You even turn off the music so
you can concentrate more. If
you have a phone call you ig-
nore it. Your mind has to be fo-
cused. That fog represents what
is going on in our heads when
we are trying to do too much at
one time!
We can do this with our driv-
ing, so let's start practicing it
with our race though our day.
Your day doesn't have to be one
pile up after another!
Slow your bjain down by sit-
ting down with a piece of pa-


per.
Put on some calming music
and examine what is happen-
ing to you. Ask yourself these
questions.
Have I had any food today?
Have I had any water?
Am I angry?
Am I tired?
Am I dressed to shoes?
What are the priorities?
Write them down on your pa-
per and put first things first.
Set your timer for 5 minutes
and take care of yourself so you
can think.
Then use your timer to keep
you focused. I call it a 15 min-
ute day! It is kind of like crisis
cleaning for your head. I take
my list of priorities and start at
the top and spend 15 minutes
on that one. It doesn't matter
that it is not finished then I set
my timer again and go to the
next item on the list. I do this
three times then I sit for 15 min-
utes and collect my thoughts
and rest at the same time. After
timer goes off; I start again!
Are you feeling overwhelmed
right now? Try this! It doesn't
matter if you are at work or
home? Your timer eliminates
the fog in your head! Use it!
