Sheriff's Office awarded grant
On Sept. 26, 2007 the U.S.
Department of Justice Office of
Justice Programs announced
that a newly-formed Central
Florida Internet Crimes Against
Children (ICAC) Task Force
will be funded through a grant
for FY 2007-2008, and that the
Polk County Sheriff's Office has
been awarded "host agency"
status for the task force.
The Polk County Sheriff's
Office has been an active
member of the North Florida
ICAC task force for the past two
and a half years, and its dedi-
cation to the investigation and
prosecution of these crimes
has made it a leader in the
area. In August 2007, the Polk
County Sheriff's Office applied
to become the host agency.
for a new ICAC task force for
the Central Florida area. The
agency received notice that it
had been awarded $265,000 in
grant funds to serve as the host
agency for an eighteen month
The ICAC program was
developed in response to the
increasing number of children
and teenagers using the In-
ternet, and heightened online
activity by sexual predators
seeking contact with under-
age victims. The program is a
national network of 46 multia-
gency, multijurisdictional task
forces engaged in proactive
investigations, forensic exami-
nations, and prosecution of
online child sexual predators.
The task forces also provide
forensic, prevention, and inves-
tigation assistance to parents,
educators, prosecutors, law
enforcement and others con-
cerned with child victimization
Sheriff Grady Judd says, "To
be named the host agency for
a new Central Florida ICAC
Task Force is an honor. The
Polk County Sheriff's Office
has been involved with ICAC
for years, and we have always
put to good use the grant mon-
ies we've received to thwart
predators' efforts, and catch
the ones who attempt to.prey
on our children."'
Phillips 'Teacher of the Year'
Constance Phillips, a Spanish teacher at Frostproof
Middle-Senior High was named as Polk County's World
Languages 'Teacher of the Year' for the 2006-2007 school
year. Mrs. Phillips has more than 20 years teaching expe-
rience. She has been a board member of the World Lan-

Checking your smoke
alarms could save your life
BARTOW, Fla. It's Fire
Prevention Month so what bet-
ter time to check your smoke
alarms ensuring the safety of
your home and loved ones.
According to the National
Fire Protection Association
(NFPA), in one-quarter of the re-
ported fires in homes equipped
with smoke alarms, the devices
did not work. Homes without
working smoke alarms now out
number those with no smoke
A smoke alarm should be
placed outside of every sleeping
area, as well as on every level of
your home. Check your smoke
alarm at least once a month by
pressing the test button until
you hear the audible sound.
Persons who are deaf or
heard of-hearing should con-
sider the installation of an alarm
that provides flashing lights, vi-
bration and/or sound.
Alarm units that are more
than ten years old should be re-
placed. If you are not sure how
old your alarm is, it is probably
a good idea to go ahead and re-
place it. Monthly maintenance
of alarms should be performed
according to the manufacturer's
instructions. Replace the batter-
ies in your smoke alarm at least
once a year.
Installation should be made
following the manufacturer's
instructions. Wall mounted
alarms should be placed no
less than four and no more than
twelve inches from the ceiling.
Homes with vaulted ceilings
should place the alarm at the
highest point of the ceiling. Do
not install smoke alarms near
windows, doors, or ducts where
drafts might interfere with their

Insect flies to the rescue of native plants
WEST PALM BEACH To an
untrained eye it might be mis-
taken for an average housefly, but
Lixadmontia franki has a greater
purpose. This species of fly is the
latest weapon in a biological bat-
tle to control an invasive species of
weevil threatening native plants in
Florida's Everglades and beyond.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District, in partnership
with the University of Florida In-
stitute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, is releasing dozens of
these tiny flies today as part of
an ongoing study to determine
their effectiveness in controlling
the Mexican bromeliad weevil,
Introduced species control is
a key component of the District's
environmental restoration mis-
sion, including the Comprehen-
sive Everglades Restoration Plan
(CERP). The District has invested
$442,000 this year on continuing
efforts to reclaim Florida's native
habitat from hostile invasive plant
and insect species, including
$17,000 on the fly research. Alto-
gether, Florida has invested close
to $2 billion toward CERP proj-
ects designed totorestore, protect
and preserve the water resources
of central and southern Florida,
with a primary focus on reviving
the nation's unique Everglades
Invasive species such as me-
laleuca, old world climbing fern
and Australian pine, as well as
the Mexican bromeliad weevil,
can dramatically change Florida's
habitat. In moving to Florida, these
species left behind natural preda-
tors that kept them in check in
their native habitat. Scientists look
for natural control methods in the
species' home ranges to identify
ways for controlling them here.
"Great solutions to some of our

South Florida Water Management District is releasing bio-
control flies to fight invasive species in the Everglades.
complex, environmental restora-
tion challenges are coming from
the application of cutting-edge
science," said South Florida Water
Management District Executive Di-
rector Carol Wehle. "The District
is optimistic that these biological
controls will prove to be another
valuable tool in protecting our na-
tive species and the Everglades."
Scientists anticipate that this fly
will provide an environmentally
friendly way to control what bro-
meliad enthusiasts have dubbed
the "evil weevil." This invasive,
introduced species lays its eggs in-
side the leaves of several varieties
of native bromeliads. When the
weevil larvae emerge, they feed
on the leaves and stems, often de-
stroying the plant in the process.
The weevil is native to Mexico
and was first sighted in Broward
County in 1989. Today it can be
found in 21 Florida counties.
Throughout South Florida,
bromeliads are a significant part
of the ecosystem. While contrib-
uting to native plant bio-diver-
sity, bromeliads also have deep
centers that serve as water-filled
reservoirs, providing homes and
hunting grounds for native frogs,
birds and insects.
Extensive study by University of
Florida scientists has shown that
Lixadmontia franki combats the
weevil by laying its eggs inside the
weevil's body. Working from with-
in, the fly maggots then destroy the
weevil, preventing it from harm-
ing bromeliads. Rigorous research
has demonstrated that the fly will
not impact agriculture, humans or
native plants and animals.
Scientists hope that the flies
released today will establish sus-
tainable, breeding colonies to
protect native bromeliads. They
have also been released at the Big
Cypress National Preserve in Col-
lier County, the Enchanted Forest
Sanctuary in Broward County and
the Lake Rogers Park in Hillsbor-
Lixadmontia franki is a species
first scientifically identified in 1993
in the Honduran mountains. All of
the flies released todaywere raised
at the University of Florida's Nor-
man C. Hayslip Biological Control
Research and Containment Labo-
ratory near Fort Pierce. Today's
fly release and others in recent
months are the culmination of
17 years of research to ensure the
flies will attack only Mexican bro-
meliad weevil larvae. The permit-
ted releases required approval by
several government agencies.
"We are grateful to the Florida
Council of Bromeliad Societies
and to the South Florida Water
Management District for their gen-
erous support of this research,"
said John Capinera, Ph.D., Uni-
versity of Florida professor and
entomology department chair.
"Officials with the two organiza-
tions have seen the devastation of
our native bromeliads, and they
understand its value to Florida's
environment. We are all working
together for the same goal to
save Florida's native bromeliads
Ag program application deadline coming soon
The U.S. Department of Ag-
riculture's Natural Resources
Conservation Service has a con-
servation program that can help
farmers and ranchers pay for con-
servation practices that prevent
erosion, improve water quality,
and provide habitat for wildlife.
The Environmental Quality In-
centives Program (EQIP) is a key
program under the 2002 Farm
Bill that provides federal cost-
share funds to working farms
and ranches for conservation im-
provements. The 2008 EQIP ap-
plication period will remain open
until Nov. 13;
EQIP provides incentive pay-
ments and cost-share funds to
private agricultural and livestock
producers to implement conser-
vation practices. The program
promotes agricultural produc-
tion and environmental quality as
compatible goals. Like all NRCS
programs, participation is volun-
The early deadline is a con-
tinuing effort to improve the
funding process. The accelerated
program cut-off date will allow
producers time to complete prac-
tices during the first years of their
contracts. The earlier application
deadline date will also help ac-
commodate field work in prepa-
ration for fall projects.
The accelerated process makes
early contact with the NRCS staff
more important than ever. NRCS
would encourage our farmers
and ranchers to come in and visit
with our local field staff now. We
know that producers that get in
early have more time to resolve
certain program or land eligibility
As with all NRCS programs,
EQIP is a voluntary program that
is intended to yield high quality,
productive soils; clean and abun-
dant water; healthy plant and
animal communities; clean air;
an adequate energy supply; and
working farms and ranchlands.

2008 EQIP program, contact your

Bronson announces new food safety partnership
TALLAHASSEE Florida Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son has announced that the Flori-
da Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services will work with
the University of Florida, Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences
(IFAS), to develop and deliver
statewide food safety educational
materials and training for agricul-
tural producers and workers.
The Food Safety Partnership
Program will enhance the safety
and competitiveness of Florida
specialty crops. The program
is funded by the USDA Specialty
Crop Block Grant in the amount
of $253,000 and will be a multi-
"It is critical to develop and
provide materials, training and
outreach activities, so that pro-
ducers and production personnel
adopt and adhere to good food
safety practices to protect the
public," Mr. Bronson said.
The training and materials,
which will be printed in both Eng-
lish and Spanish, will be provided
statewide by Florida extension
professionals to producers, field
workers, packers and re-pack-
ers of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Currently, few materials exist to
train farm workers in food safety
practices. Food safety require-
ments must be clearly commu-
nicated at all levels of production
and handling, Mr. Bronson said.
To keep Florida specialty crops
competitive and to ensure safe
consumption, a series of prac-
tices must be followed to prevent
and reduce microbial or chemical
contamination. The Food Safety
Partnership Program will target
crops associated with the highest
risk of food-borne illness and at
the greatest level of production in
Florida -- tomatoes, leafy greens,
melons and berries.
Florida is the No. 2 producer
of fruits and vegetables in the na-
tion. Cash receipts for agriculture
production in Florida for 2005
were $7.759 billion. According to
USDA data, more than 45 percent
of this amount was derived from
specialty crop production of fresh
fruits and vegetables. The U.S.
Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) reports that 12 percent of
food-borne illnesses associated
with outbreaks are caused by pro-
Mr. Bronson said the food safe-
ty training and educational mate-
rials will address safe handling,
production and packing of fruits
"While this issue is important
for our growers to remain com-
petitive in the global marketplace,
it is critically important for the
safety of the consuming public,"
Mr. Bronson said.
Everglades projects help rural economies
WEST PALM BEACH Boost-
ing South Florida's economic
outlook is successfully proving to
be an added bonus of Everglades
restoration as employment and
business opportunities continue
to expand with the South Florida
Water Management District. The
District recently strengthened its
partnerships with workforce de-
velopment organizations, com-
munity colleges and non-profits
to train area workers and provide
the goods and services needed to
tackle $1.8 billion in Everglades
Two District initiatives, the
Small Business Enterprise pro-
gram and Workforce Training Ini-
tiative, are functioning in concert
to boost contract prospects for lo-
cal businesses in the Palm Beach,
Hendry, Lee, Martin and St. Lucie
county areas, while at the same
time increasing the availability of
skilled workers needed to oper-
ate bulldozers, drive dump trucks
and pour concrete. These efforts
are helping to expand contract
prospects for minority businesses
STo date, more than $11 million
has been spent throughout Flor-
ida on subcontractors and direct
purchases for restoration projects
-- approximately 75 percent of the
total service dollars -- with more
than $5 million spent within the
District's 16-county region. In the
immediate Pahokee, South Bay
, Belle Glade and Clewiston ar-
eas, approximately $2.2 million
has been spent to date. One ex-
ample is the purchase of vehicles
needed to support work on the
Everglades Agricultural Area Res-
ervoir project near South Bay .
More than 30 vehicles have been
purchased from Belle Glade area
"Everglades Restoration proj-
ects are bringing measurable
improvement to local economies
and the environment," said Dis-
trict Governing Board Member
Patrick Rooney. "It's a winning
To increase the availability of
qualified local workers, the Dis-
trict contracted with the Educa-
tion Center of Southwest Florida
and with Palm Beach Community
College to train and certify work-
ers in heavy equipment operation
and construction trades.
The District has invested more
than $1.2 million in partnerships
with these two institutions. To
date, their training programs have
produced 131 construction craft
graduates and 130 heavy equip-
ment graduates. Depending on
experience and certifications,
construction graduates can earn
$12 to $35 an hour; heavy equip-
ment graduates can earn $12 to
$22 an hour.
To date, Southern Everglades
Restoration work has created
more than 250 jobs, and generat-
ed more than $5 million in payroll
to area residents.
To expand its vendor lists, the
District has certified more than
1,000 small businesses to work
on Everglades Restoration proj-
ects. Through the Small Busi-
ness Enterprise program, these
businesses are given additional
consideration when the District
solicits project bids and propos-
als. The list of certified businesses
is also made directly available to

Keep pets safe this Halloween
COLLEGE STATION Hallow-
een can be a doggone scary time
for pets, and there's no doubt little
Sparky can get easily spooked.
For pets, Halloween night can
turn into a real nightmare if pre-
cautions aren't taken to protect
them, says Patty Hug, a small ani-
mal veterinary technician in the
- College of Veterinary Medicine
& Biomedical Sciences at Texas
Like most holidays, Halloween
brings extra guests to your door-
step and into your pet's territory.
Pets accustomed to large crowds
of visitors should have little
trouble adjusting, says Hug, but
other pets may be frightened by
your new (and strangely dressed)
"If you are hosting a Hallow-
een party, it is best to designate
an area for your pet, such as the
bedroom, where they can con-
stantly be separated from the
guests," says Hug. "The scent of
the owner in the bedroom will
comfort the animal and keep it
from feeling abandoned."
If you don't have a suitable
area to designate as doggie's do-
main, consider boarding your pet
at a separate location. "Let a trust-
ed friend take care of your pet for
the night or ask your veterinarian
if they offer boarding," Hug sug-
If you prefer to keep your
kooky creatures by your side on
All Hollow's Eve, be sure to re-
strain them. "A leash should keep
the pet from frightening trick-or-
treaters and from running out the
door into danger," says Hug.
For pets that live outdoors, take
"It is important to remember that it isn't natural for
animals to wear costumes, so they may need to be
trained to become comfortable in them. Avoid any
costume that impedes their limbs or obstructs their
vision. Simple, one-piece costumes tied loosely at
the neck are the best options."

extra precautions to ensure there
is a substantial barrier between
them and potentially dangerous
"Keep your animals in a fenced
area with a ceiling, if possible,"
advises Hug. "This may keep the
animal from escaping and keep
children from throwing candy
- particularly chocolate, which
is toxic to pets into the fenced
Even when protected by a
fence, some pets become fright-
ened by the constant movement
and noise that comes with Hal-
loween. "When in doubt, move
the pet indoors to a safe area,"
That advice counts double for
owners of black cats.
While Hug warns that all pets
are in potentially serious danger
on Halloween, black cats have
particularly bad luck on this
haunting holiday. "Some people
hold superstitions about black
cats and seek to harm them as
part of a malicious joke," warns
Hug. "It is up to the owner to pro-
tect pets from increased risk."
In an attempt to protect black
cats, many pet stores refuse to sell
them on or around Halloween. If
you have black kittens to sell or
give away, November might be
a better month to find your feline
friends new homes.
If your black cat wants to dis-
guise himself this Halloween or
if he just wants to be a cowboy.
or astronaut for one night, a cos-
tume is an easy way to do just
that. "It is important to remember
that it isn't natural for animals to
wear costumes, so they may need
to be trained to become comfort-
able in them," says Hug. "Avoid
any costume that impedes their
limbs or obstructs their vision.

When dressing your home
for Halloween, place decorations
out of your pet's reach, says Hug.
"Never leave your pet alone in a
room with a burning candle or
candy decorations. If you suspect
your pet has eaten candy, look for
vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy and
seizure-like activity. Immediately
contact your veterinarian if your
pet displays these signs."

Are you ready, willing,
and able to
By Mary Ruth Prouty
To succeed at.making lifestyle
changes you need to answer YES
to the question; "Are you ready,
willing, and able to change?"
The experts say that for people to
change, making the change must
be important to them. In other
words, you must have good rea-
sons to change. You must have
more reasons to change than rea-
sons not to change. The experts
also say that you must be con-
fident and believe that you can
To succeed, take what you
want to do and break it down into
small steps. Then think about a
few things you are -ready, willing,
and able to change. Leave other
habits that you don't feel ready,
willing, and able to change for an-
What are you ready, willing,
and able to change? To answer
this question,, think about your
current eating and activity habits.
What foods do you buy? Are you
ready to leave some of the less
healthy things on the shelf instead
of putting them in your cupboard?
How active are you? Are you will-
ing to give up some tube time to
get active? Try to keep an honest
food record for a few days to get
a true picture of what-you eat.
Based on your current habits,
start with a few changes that are
easy to tackle. Pick some changes
that you want to do the most, and
that will make the biggest impact.
Perhaps choose one change in
your eating habits and another in
activity. Remember: don't try to
change everything at once.
For example, maybe you tend
to eat a bowl of ice cream every
night while you watch TV Can
you switch that ice cream to a
healthier snack? Maybe you can
eat a fruit or a small bowl of ce-
real or just a smaller portion of
ice cream. Maybe you have the
unhealthy.habit of skipping meals
and usually means you'll make up
for it later. Can you plan for those
skipped lunches or breakfasts
with a piece of fruit or a healthy
granola bar? For physical activ-
ity can you take 15 minute break
from the TV and go for a walk? Or
maybe you can walk for 15 min-
utes in the morning or at lunch
time. It's your decisions what
are you ready, willing and able to
do for you?
Florida Farm Bureau honors
three state legislators
GAINESVILLE The Florida
Farm Bureau Federation recog-
nized Sen. Mike Haridopolos and
Reps. Denise Grimsley and Baxter
Troutman as Legislators of the
Year for 2007 for their leadership,
vision and support of Florida 's
agriculture industry. The awards
were presented at the Federation's
2007 annual meeting Oct. 10-12 at
the Daytona Beach Hilton.
"As the state's general agricul-
tural organization, we are pleased
to recognize these legislators for
their efforts to support the state's
second-largest industry," said
John L. Hoblick, Florida Farm Bu-
Sen. Haridopolos represents
Senate District 26, which includes
parts of Brevard, Indian River ,
Osceola and St. Lucie counties.
He has been featured in Florida
Trend magazine as one "...who
could shape Florida politics." The
Hotline recently named him one
of six rising stars among Repub-
lican state legislators. He chairs
the Senate Committee on Finance
and Tax and is Majority Whip. In
the 2007 session of the Florida
Legislature he sponsored legis-
lation that will encourage agri-
tourism activities on farms and
Rep. Grimsley represents
House District 77, which includes
Hendry, Glades and parts of Col-
lier and Highlands counties. In
only her second term in office,
she chaired the House'Agribusi-
ness Committee. She is also a

ronment and Natural Resources
Council as well the Healthcare
Council. "Widely respected for
her integrity, she has become an
excellent advocate for the agricul-
tural industry, championing both
our substantive and our fiscal is-
Rep. Troutman represents
House District 66, which includes
parts of Hardee, Highlands and
Polk counties. He currently serves
as vice chair of both the Envi-
ronment and Natural Resources
Council and the Environmental
Protection Committee. In 2007,
Baxter was instrumental in the
fight to remove the sales tax from
all electricity used on farms and
authored a bill to protect agricul-
turalists from trespassers.
