Solid Waste Division awarded
BARTOW, Fla. The team
effort of the Polk County Solid
Waste Division and the engi-
neering firm, Jones Edmunds &
Associates has kept 3,000 tons
of daily waste flowing to Polk's
North Central Landfill (NCLF),
recycled 10 million gallons per
year of wastewater and earned
nationwide recognition for their
efforts. In fact, the team received
two national awards of excel-
'lence for innovation and efficien-
cy, as well as one local and two
state level awards. Together, they
completed the ambitious project
on time, under budget and with-
out service interruptions or fee
increases for citizens.
Nationally, the new 60-acre
landfill and its bioreactor were
recognized by two organizations.
"American City & County" mag-
azine named Polk County one of
four 2007 Crown Communities,
and the American Council of En-
gineering Companies bestowed
a National Recognition Award
for Engineering Excellence. Both
organizations recognized the
outstanding merit of the proj-
ects based on the evaluation of
innovation, cost efficiency and
benefit to the community.
The lifespan of the North
Central Landfill (NCLF), origi-
nally projected to last until 2008,
was significantly impacted by
the 2004 hurricane season. As a
result of the damage and debris
left in the wake of Hurricanes

cell (Phase III) had to be com-
pleted much sooner than an-
ticipated. Engineers and county
officials had just 24 months to
get it open a time frame that

the lined, 60-acre landfill cell,
the work included clearing land,
filling in phosphate pits, build-
ing roads, mitigating wetlands
and constructing a new storm
Polk was recognized for inno-
vation this was the first landfill in
Florida that was designed from
the ground up to be a "biore-
.actor" landfill. Bioreactors re-
cycle the rain water and liquids
that leach through the waste,
called leachate. This prevents
the landfill from drying and adds
microbes that speed decomposi-
tion so the landfill will last lon-
ger, much longer. The NCLF al-

that has proven to save taxpayer
dollars. Each day, up to 50,000
gallons of leachate is no longer
trucked off-site for disposal a
savings of $1.1 million per year.
The bioreactor paid for itself in
one year of operation and is ex-
pected to save $12 million taxpay-
er dollars over the next six years.
Even with the shortened time-
line and competition for con-
struction services, the project
was completed three months
ahead of schedule. Additionally,
amidst an unstable market and
increased construction costs due
to Hurricane Katrina damages
in Louisiana and Mississippi, the

Mutual announces resolution to FSA disaster payment
LAKELAND, Fla. Florida Cit-
rus Mutual is pleased to announce
that the U.S. Department of Agri-
culture (USDA) has reached an
equitable resolution to the issues
surrounding the 2004 hurricane
In recent weeks, Farm Service
Agency (FSA) sent many citrus,
vegetable and nursery growers
letters saying they may have to
pay the disaster money plus in-
terest back if certain guidelines
- mostly dealing with crop insur-
ance had not been met. -The
refunds would have reached into
the tens of millions of dollars.
Under the proposal an-
nounced by the USDA, producers
can avoid having to pay refunds
by providing FSA with proof of
2008 federal crop insurance, or
NAP coverage. If the sales closing
date or application, closing date
for 2008 crops has passed than
evidence of 2009 coverage is ac-
In other words, if growers get
crop insurance now they won't
have to refund the disaster pay-

the facts in this case and mak-
ing a fair decision," said Michael
W Sparks, Executive VP/CEO of

McCollum brings CyberSafety into Florida schools
General Bill McCollum has an-
nounced that beginning this fall;
S the Child Predator CyberCrime
Unit will take the Attorney Gen-
eral's cybersafety. program into
schools statewide. Speaking to
students, teachers and school
superintendents at Rampello
Downtown Partnership School in
Tampa, Attorney General McCol-
lum stressed the importance of
teaching Florida's children about
"Our goal is to provide a com-
prehensive online personal safety
program for all students in Florida
and empower them to recognize,
avoid and report instances of pred-
ators attempting to exploit them
through the Internet," said Attor-
ney General Bill McCollum. "As
technology continues to evolve
and have a more significant role
in our children's lives, we must
take every precaution to keep
them safe. That process begins
with education and outreach."
In partnership with the Florida As-
sociation of District School Super-
intendents and with the support
of both the Florida School Re-
source Officers Association and
the Florida Sheriffs Association,
the Attorney General's victim ad-
vocates will present the 50-minute
cybersafety program in public and
I. private middle and high schools
throughout the. state. Designed
to empower children to use the
Internet safely, the program com-
bines real-life stories and exam-
ples to help students identify the
ways they could be victimized
online as well as important safety
tips to protect themselves from
internet child predators.
The Attorney General's Of-
fice cybersafety program will
specifically target middle and
high school students and will
endeavor to educate them about
online personal safety. During the
presentations, the students will
receive information about inter-
net dangers as well as the tactics
used by online predators. They
will also learn what constitutes a
cybercrime and how to report it.
An open line of communication
between the students and the vic-
tim advocates will be strongly en-
couraged to give the opportunity
for private disclosure. Students
will be taught how to recognize
when a friend is in Cyberr danger"
and what they can do to help. The
victim advocates will offer coun-
seling to any child who discloses
victimization and can refer any
reported offenses to law enforce-
ment for investigation.
In March, the Attorney General
and the Florida Association of
District School Superintendents
formed a partnership aimed at
educating students on cybersafety,
focusing on planning, construct-
ing, and maintaining the Attorney
General's Cybersafety Educational
Initiative. Attorney General McC6l-
lum emphasized the importance
of the support provided by the
District School Superintendents
noting they will be instrumental
in helping reach Florida's school
.children with the message of cy-
bersafety, which was echoed by
the Florida Association of District
"Florida's superintendents are
eager to be a part of this creative
and much. needed approach to
ensure the safety of our children.
We applaud the Attorney Gen-
eral in his efforts and are excited
about the partnership," said Bill
Montford, Chief Executive Of-
ficer of the Florida Association
of District School Superinten-
dents. "Our children will be bet-
ter prepared to deal with the po-
tential dangers of encountering
predators through the internet."
The Florida Association of School
Resource Officers (SRO) has also
committed its support to the At-
torney General's efforts. The SRO
Program is a collaborative effort
by certified law enforcement offi-
cers, educators, students, parents
and the -community to offer law
related educational programs in
the schools. The purpose of the
program is to reduce crime, drug
abuse and violence and provide a
safe school environment.
"I commend Attorney General
McCollum for placingsuch a high
priority on our children's safety,"
said Robert Tricquet, president,
FloridaSchool Resource Officers
Association, "The association
is committed to' supporting the
Office of the Attorney -General
to .ensure Florida students are
provided with the information
needed to keep them safe while
online." The administrators of
the school program will share
appropriate information with the
school resource officers in the lo-
cal schools so they can keep' their
eyes and ears open to potential
"hot spots." They can then focus
on those students and their spe-
To compliment the school
program, the Child Predator Cy-
berCrime Unit has also developed
the Internet Student Advisory
Council, designed to match tech-
nology-savvy teenagers with the
unit's cybercrime law enforce-
ment team. The unit's investiga-
tors will work closely with the
students to identify new and
popular internet trends, includ-
ing those that could be potentially
harmful to young people. Us-
ing information provided by the
student advisors, presenters will
speak to kids in their own lan-
guage and empower them to pro-
tect themselves and one another.
CyberSafety Background: Launch
of Educational Awareness Cam-
In May, Attorney General Mc-
Collum's office launched a new
cybersafety website, located at
surf, to provide valuable infor-
mation to adults, teens and kids
about staying safe while surfing
the internet. The SafeSurf chil-
dren's page includes several en-
tertaining and educational games
that teach internet safety. The
teen SafeSurf page offers tips on
safeguarding personal informa-
tion and avoiding dangerous situ-
ations. It also provides a forum
for stories from teenagers who
were. victimized on the internet.
The web page for adults offers
a guide to popular internet lan-
guage used in chat rooms and
gives safety advice on how to
monitor what your children are
doing on the internet. Since its in-
ception in May, more than 9,000
people have visited the Attor-
ney General's SafeSurf website.
New Laws, Stricter Penalties, and
the Expansion of the Child Preda-
tor CyberCrime Unit
This spring, the CyberCrimes
against Children Act of 2007 was
passed by the Florida Legislature
and signed into law by the Gov-
ernor, championed by Attorney
General McCollum; this law now
positions Florida as a national
leader in the legal fight against.
child pornography and the inter-
net solicitation of children. The
new law increases penalties for
the possession or distribution of
child pornography online and
creates a new, separate penalty
for internet predators who com-
municate with a child online and
then travel to meet that child for
the specific purpose of further
sexually abusing him or her.
In addition to increasing the
penalties for the possession and
distribution of child pornography
and for those who travel to 'meet
children, the law also increases
penalties for offenders who mis-
represent their age to seduce a
child over the internet. This be-
havior, known as "grooming," is
intended to make a child believe
the offender is closer in age to the
child, therefore encouraging the
'child to feel more comfortable
conversing with the offender. The
new law also gives the Attorney
General's Office of Statewide
Prosecution jurisdiction to pros-
ecute child pornography and in-
ternet child sexual abuse cases.
The Office of the Attorney.
General collaborates with the
Florida Sheriffs" Association, and
Sheriffs' offices statewide, in a
collaborative effort to bring those
who prey on our children online
to justice. The association was
extremely supportive of the At-
torney General's efforts in passing
the CyberCrimes Against Children
Act of 2007 and continues to sup-
port the efforts of his office.
"Attorney General McCollum
has appropriately put the issue
of online child predators to the
forefront where it belongs,r' said
Baker Sheriff Joey Dobson, Presi-
dent of the Florida Sheriffs Associ-
ation. "These are sick individuals
who prey on our children's inno-
cence and with tougher laws and
stronger penalties we will now be
better armed in our fight to stop
The Office of the Attorney
General also received funding to
expand the Child Predator Cy-
berCrime Unit across the state.
Over the next year, they will begin
opening new units with 50 addi-
tional cybercrime staff dedicated
to investigating, arresting and
prosecuting internet child preda-
tors and child pornographers. For

Sushi to go? Don't let it languish in your refrigerator
AP photo/University of Florida/
Food safety expert Keith Sch-
neider scrutinizes day-old su-
shi rolls in his office at UF's
main campus in Gainesville.
Mr. Schneider says consum-
ers who buy ready-to-eat
sushi from supermarkets
should throw away any left-
overs after 24 hours, due to
spoilage concerns. Take-out
and doggie bags from sushi
restaurants should be con-
sumed the day they're pur-
chased, he said.
By Tom Nordlie

a box of ready-to-eat sushi from
the grocery store? Say sayonara to
any leftovers still in the fridge after
24 hours,.a University of Florida
food safety expert says.
"Any signs of spoilage are bad,
but just because it looks good
doesn't mean it's safe," said Keith
Schneider, an associate professor
of food science with UF's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
Take-out and doggie bags from
sushi restaurants should be eaten
when you get home or thrown
away, he said.
That's because foods can inter-
act when they're placed together.
Inside a sushi roll, bacteria some-
times find ideal conditions in the
spaces where moist ingredients
come in contact with dry ones
or where foods with different pH
meet. The result: faster spoilage.
"Sushi is meant to be con-
sumed the day you buy it," said sites. -

Jeff Seiler, AFC's compliance

24-hour recommendation and
suggests consumers eat ready-
to-eat sushi as soon as they get
home to ensure the best flavor.
Though sushi is often associ-
ated with pricey restaurants, in
the past decade inexpensive sushi
has become more available and
popular in the United States, said
Sasha Issenberg, a Philadelphia-
based journalist who authored
"The Sushi Economy: Globaliza-
tion and the Making of a Modern
Delicacy," published in May.
"Wal-Mart opened in Piano,
Texas, with a sushi bar in it," he
said. "I think people see it as sort

Statistics on ready-to-eat sushi
sales are sparse, but Issenberg re-
ported in his book that one survey
indicated 30 million U.S. adults
eat sushi regularly.
And though the idea of grocery
shoppers picking up packaged su-
shi along with dog food and dish
soap may rankle some aficiona-
dos, Mr. Issenberg says from a
historical perspective, this trend is
simply a return to sushi's roots.
In the late 19th century, sushi
was a low-cost snack sold by To-
kyo street vendors, he said. Only
later did this proto-fast food be-
come glamorous and expensive.
The first U.S. sushi bar opened in
Los Angeles' Little Tokyo in 1964,
an upscale establishment fre-
quented by Japanese-American
"In Japan, (sushi's) origins are
far closer to the experience of go-
ing to a supermarket and getting
takeout and bringing it home,
than actually sitting down in a
sushi bar and spending $100 on
your dinner and eating it there,"

Get a jump on that buck during archery season
Summer's officially over even
though you can't tell 'cause it's
still so hot and sticky outside.
We've finished our preseason
scouting and hung our tree
stands along well-traveled deer
trails, hopefully next to a mature
white oak that'll begin dropping
acorns soon. Finally the time
of year we've been waiting for is
here the beginning of football
season, and better yet, opening
day of hunting season, specifi-
Archery season provides a
great opportunity to take a tro-
phy whitetail and is arguably one
of the best times to do so, along
with hunting the rut. If you're
stealthy enough and have done
your homework, you've got a
good chance of having a nice
one walk out in front of you.
Florida's divided into three
hunting zones and you'll need
to know which zone you'll be
hunting in because season dates
Hunting season comes in
first in the South Hunting Zone,
where archery season begins
Sept. 8 and ends Oct. 7. Next up
is the Central Zone, which runs
Sept. 22 Oct. 21. In the North-
west Hunting Zone, archery sea-
son begins Oct. 13 and ends Nov.
To hunt during archery sea-
son,you'll need a Florida hunting
By Tony Young
license and an archery permit.
If you're a.Florida resident, a
hunting license costs $12.50 but
only through September. Begin-
ning Oct. 1, it's going up to $17.
Nonresidents may pay $46.50 for
a 10-day license or $151.50 for
12 months. The archery permit
costs $5 for in-state and out-of-
Anyone planning to hunt one
of Florida's many wildlife man-
agement areas (WMAs) must
purchase a management area
permit for $26.50.
All of them are available at
county tax collectors' offices, re-
tail outlets that sell hunting and
fishing supplies, or by calling
or clicking MyFWC.com/license.
The most common game to
take during archery season is
deer and wild hog. During this
period, deer of either sex are
legal game, regardlessof antler
size (except for spotted fawns).
The daily bag limit on deer is
two." Bag limits on WMAs can
differ, so consult the area's bro-
Wild hogs are considered live-
stock on private lands and with
landowner permission can be
hunted year-round with no bag
.or size limits. On most WMAs,
there's no bag or size limits, and
hogs are legal to take during any
hunting season except spring
turkey. On a few WMAs, limits
do apply, so again check the area
In addition to hunting big
game, it's also legal to shoot
gobblers and bearded turkeys
during archery season. Only one
can be taken per day and there's
a two-bird fall-season limit. It's
against the law to hunt turkeys
in Holmes County during this
period, and you can't shoot tur-
keys while they're on the roost,
over bait, when you're within
100 yards of a game-feeding sta-
tion or with the aid of recorded
If you're quite the marksman,
gray squirrel, quail and rabbit
are three other species legal to
take during archery season and
there's a daily bag limit of 12 for
SOnly bows may be used dur-
ing archery season no cross-
bows allowed, except for hunt-
ers with a disabled crossbow
permit. Bows must have a mini-
mum draw weight of 35 pounds
and hand-held .releases are per-
mitted. For hunting deer, hog and
turkey, broadheads must have at
least two sharpened edges with
a minimum width of 7/8 inch.
Legal shooting hours are a
half-hour before sunrise to a
half-hour after sunset. Except
for turkeys, you're permitted to
take resident game over corn or
soybeans on private land, as long
as the game-feeding station's
been established for at least six
months and maintained year-
round. It's against the law to use
such bait on WMAs.
Some things you can't do dur-
ing archery season include pos-
sessing firearms, using explosive
or drug-injecting arrows, using
bows equipped with electronic
computational or laser sights
and possessing a bow on an air-
boat in Mjami-Dade County.
You can't use dogs to hunt
deer or hogs during archery sea-
son, but you can use bird-dogs
if quail hunting. Otherwise, the
only time you can have a dog in
the woods while hunting is on a
leash, and you're using it to trail
Here's hoping all your prepa-
ration and persistence pays off
and wishing you luck on taking
that monster buck. As always,
have fun, hunt safely and ethi-
cally, and we'll see you in the
