'Evil Never Dies'


neither does the fun


Landlords seek city's

help to rent properties


Cite utility rates, high fees

as roadblocks to finding tenants


Dundee residents Brittany Marshall and Marvin Lawrence were in attendance last Friday
when the Frostproof Chamber hosted another murder mystery dinner theater. We're not
sure if they were going for the gangster look, or just a sharp dressed young couple who
brightened the evening. More coverage on Page 5A.


By BRIAN ACKLEY
NEV\'. s@FF OST- P (F'OOtE A S.N1F
Citing high vacancy rates, Frostproof
landlords turned Monday night to seek
help from city leaders in finding ten-
ants for their vacant properties.
Randy Scott, one of about a dozen
people in attendance at a special Frost-
proof City Council workshop called
specifically to discuss this issue, said
there are four major areas of concern
that are problems for landlords, and
scare off potential renters before even
giving Frostproof a chance,
One person who deals in the business
on a daily basis says high utility rates
and fees are the biggest problem.
"The reputation of the City of
Frostproof precedes us," said Realtor
Michelle Hutto from Keystone Realty.
"A licensed real estate broker out of
Lake Wales called me today looking
for a property, but she said do not
bother looking within the city limits.
It is impacting us,. This is what we're
being known for, that you can't afford
to live in the city limits of Frostproof. I
just wanted to give you my professional
opinion."


Scott said high water and sewer rates,
high water hook up deposit fee, so-
called "ready to serve" fees and a new
interpretation of how the city should
charge for business licenses are the
four areas of concern.
City o officials agreed to re-examine a
city ordinance, and how it is interpret-
ed, regarding licenses. For many years,
the city charged $30 for the first rental
property a landlord owned, and $5 for
each additional property.
However, the code was changed by
the council last year, and is now inter-
preted to read that each rental property
must have its own individual business
license to go with it, at a cost of $30 for
each unit.
Council members agreed that that
was not the intended consequence of
their action, and they would re-isit the
matter once again when they meet in
regular session, perhaps as early as next
Monday.'
But city leaders offered little relief, at
least in the short term, on the other two
financial issues all related to the city's
sewer and water fees, and the water

By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY @LAKEWALESNEWS.COM
It was "War of the Worlds" minus
Orson Welles, in the sense that some
did not know it wasn't real.
It was startling, no doubt, to see an-
out-of town police car, lights flashing,
parked in front of the Food Court door
Monday at Eagle Ridge Mall. Swarms
of officers ran around inside, some
with guns drawn. An overheard con-
versation revealed that a few patrons,
particularly those who were not aware
of a movie being filmed, were sure
there was a crisis at the mall.
But to the contrary, it was a good
thing, and for at least two days a boon
to the local economy. The crew was
filming a mall scene for "Two Days," a
thriller about a cop who goes insane
on the eve of his retirement. The
movie, produced by an Italian film
company, needed lots of extras for
the mall shoot, and extras they got.
Second assistant producer Samantha
Uveda said that on Sunday, the first
day of local filming, they plugged in
about 80 people. Only "featured" ex-
tras were paid, according to producer
Steven Shea, an Orlando resident and
the local producer.
But they had crowd scenes and
other venues where participants may
at least have the thrill of seeing them-
selves on film.
Shea said the production team
scouted a number of malls, but liked
Eagle Ridge best, and considered the
mall's carousel a nice touch. Shea said
he had actually produced a movie of
his own, "Andre the Butcher," in Lake


HMUOIU BY MAHY UANNAUAY
A police officer in the movie gets made up.
Wales a few years back. In that case,
local back roads and orange groves
were the backdrop.
Uveda said that in brief, "Two Days"
is about a veteran police officer, Guy
Marks, who is nearing retirement.
The "Two Days" refer to his last day
of work, and the ill-fated day after he
retires. All the evil and sadness he has
seen on the job start running through
his mind, and on the evening of his
retirement, he starts hearing voices,
and the things they tell him to do are
not good.
Led by the voices, not by his own
will, Guy sets out on a shooting spree,
tracked by his friends in the depart-
ment who hope he will come back to
reality. The crew didn't want to give
too much of the plot away, so those
who want to know the outcome, (or
who are in the movie) will have to
await until its release date, which Shea
said will be sometime in 2012.
Meanwhile, the mall has returned to
normal and the lights, monitors and
mics have moved on down the road.

The 2011 property tax notices for all of
Polk County's property owners were mailed
out on Saturday, Oct. 29.
"We make every effort to inform taxpay-
ers that their taxes are due regardless of
whether they receive their bill. Florida law
clearly places the burden of responsibil-
ity for payment of taxes on the property
owner. So, every year we remind taxpayers
to contact our offices if they do not receive
their bill," says Joe Tedder.
Last week, 334,674 property tax bills went
out in the mail to Polk's property owners.
Property owners who have opted to pay by
installment will not receive a November bill;
instead, they will be notified of third quarter
installment payments due Dec. 1.
Taxes for 2011 have a total taxable
amount of $514,206,073 as compared to
last year's tax roll which had a total taxable
amount of $544,666,391. This year's tax roll
represents a 6 percent decrease in taxes
and assessments billed from the prior year
and down 27 percent from three years ago,
the tax collector's office reports.
Tedder's office provides an informational
insert with the tax notice to help answer
taxpayer questions. The insert includes a
listing of taxing and levying authorities and
their telephone numbers as well as a brief
description of taxes and/or assessments
that may appear on an individual's tax bill.

SSince your air conditioning and heating unit uses as much as half of your energy
costs, it only makes sense to see if it needs replacing. In most cases, the energy
savings can help make up for the cost of a new unit, especially if yours is over
ten years old. Carrier's Infinity System is the most energy-efficient heating and

VIEWPOINT


39 miles of beauty and


The high sandy Ridge of eastern Polk County
has long been known for its scenic beauty, but
it is a recognition that has taken root locally. To
much of the rest of Florida, the Ridge is 'terra
incognita,' unknown land.
Our area's reputation for natural beauty began
to enjoy a bit of outside respect when the state
designated what we had long known as Scenic
Highway as an official Florida Scenic Highway
about seven years ago. That designation came
after many months of hard work on the part of
local citizens who were determined to help pro-
tect and share the natural beauty of our region.
Many of those same dedicated volunteers are
still at work promoting the Scenic Highway, and
inviting visitors to enjoy the pleasant 39-mile
drive down State Road 17 from Haines City to
beyond Frostproof. The rolling hills, lakes and
miles of citrus groves, scrub and forest make an
inviting contrast to the miles of endless asphalt
parking lots and eighty-foot signs that embroider
much of central Florida.
This Saturday, November 5, from 8:00 a.m. to


Our Viewpoint
2 p.m., visitors and locals alike have an opportu-
nity to take part in the 4th annual edition of the
road's biggest event: the "39-Mile Yard Sale."
Stretched out along the length of the Scenic
Highway, the 39-mile sale is the annual fundrais-
er for both the Scenic Highway organization and
several other local charitable efforts.
The sale is one way to raise the profile of
our hidden corner of the world, and invite our
neighbors from outside our area to come over
and make a day of exploring and enjoying.
Last year's event, held in bitterly cold weather,
drew thousands of shoppers who cruised the
highway, stopping at the many stands along the
way. This year, better weather and more partici-
pation promise an even greater turnout.
Vendors can rent table space at several sites
along the highway. Residents will be offering an
amazing variety of merchandise and collectibles
in the regions' largest annual sale. Homemade
jams, locally-produced honey, fresh fruit and


The pain of Vietnam


Several weeks ago, I was invited to
introduce the two keynote speakers -
Fort Meade men who served in Vietnam
at the ceremony last Thursday wel-
coming the Traveling Vietnam Memorial
Wall to Fort Meade. It is difficult for me
to turn down an opportunity to don the
uniform that I wore for two years in the
active Army and 30 years in the Florida
Army National Guard, doubly so when
the occasion is to recognize those who
served in Vietnam, which I did not.
Like many of my generation, Ilosta
good friend in Vietnam, Jerry Woodall, a
Marine captain on his third tour. Gene
Hill, the father of one of my favorite
young people, Tammy Hill Putnam, was
killed almost on the day she was born.
In my brief introduction of the two
keynote speakers, J.W. NManley and Jay
Blaine Fitch, I said it is disingenuous,
when talking about the war in Vietnam,
-to ignore the 500-pound gorilla in the
room.
Vietnam was one of the darkest hours
in our history. Our national leadership
sent men and women to the battlefield
without a clearly defined mission, and
far worse, lacked the resolve to see them
through to victory.
It is a familiar theme for me.
J.W.'s and Jay's speeches were right
on point and well-delivered, sometimes
emotionally, as they remembered some
of their fellow soldiers who died in
Vietnam.
But for me, the most emotional as-
pect was sitting on the stage and look-,
ing at the row of veterans on the front
row of the audience.
All were in wheelchairs. One had no
feet, another had no legs.


S.L. Frisbie


S.L Frisbie can be contacted at
slfrisbie@polkcountydemocrat.com.


One struggled to stand and remain
standing during the National Aiithem.
It clearly took every ounce of resolve he
could muster.
Another, who remained seated, sa-
luted with his left hand. I assumed that.
his right arm wasn't sufficiently strong.
These are veterans who returned from
the battlefield to be cursed by anti-war
zealots who called them baby killers,
and worse.
They deserved better. They deserve
the respect that at last they are receiv-
ing.
After the program, a number of men
wearing T-shirts identifying them as
Vietnam veterans came to shake my
hand and salute me.
It should have been the other way
around. As an American citizen, I owe
them, not vice versa.
One young man told me his father
returned from Vietnam and kissed the
soil of America, and as he and his fellow
soldiers stood up, they were spat upon.
I asked him to convey my thanks to
his father for his service.
Perhaps the most memorable mo-
ment was when I looked down at a little
girl, perhaps 4 or 5 years old, standing

In Lake Wales, official group locations are to be

large part of Frostproof's Wall Street will also be
dedicated to the sale.
As one of the sponsoring organizations, the
Lake Wales Association of Realtors will be add-
ing their proceeds to their scholarship fund to
benefit a local Polk State College student.
Everyone can take part in this year's event,
either as a vendor or a shopper, or perhaps both.
In participating, we take part in the life of our
community in an easy way, meet our neighbors,
make new friends, and perhaps learn of the ad-
vantages of sharing natures bounty and natures
beauty. This is, after all, a very nice place to live.


Letters to the editor

Why not Splenda?


You would think that in this day and
age we live in that the soda companies
would put out a soda that diabetics
could and would be able to drink.
Most all.diet soda contains a product
called aspartame which is not a healthy
thing to intake to your body.
This is not good for anyone to drink.


So I want to know why not Splenda in
diet soda, it does not contain aspartame
and if it is healthier for everyone.
I don't need or want aspartame in
anything I eat or drink.

There is always a suspect cast of characters, or is that a cast of characters that are all suspects?: Anyway, those who were part of the murder
mystery included, from left: Jim Reddick, Gayle Reeder, Paul Webb, Eric Hill, Robbie Taylor, and Martha Neher. The murder mystery dinner "Evil
Never Dies" was a huge success. People came from near and far to Reaper Junction and helped solve the mystery of who killed Grimsby Graves.
A good time was had by all as many came in costume to enjoy the evening.


Robbie Taylor and Martha Neher are "veterans"
of several past productions. The chamber hosts
such events once every three months, with the
next one scheduled for New Year's Eve, Dec. 31.
Get your tickets early because they are almost
always a sell out.


Dede Lefils (Lady Gaga), Robert Goering (Pimp), Veronica Espinoza
(Princess), Jim Lefils (Vinnie Gaga's Manager) were among the most
colorful and creative costumes of the night. Espinoza won for prettiest
costume, while Dede and Jim were voted best celebrity costume. There
was a tie for most original between Harvey Sims and Patti Chinski of Lake

Libraries gain huge fanbase for eBook program


By DIANE NICHOLS
DNICHOLS@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
You might say it's the perfect library
book. The pages don't yellow or tear,
the binding won't split, it will never
get lost and would never ever cost you
a late fee. Those are only a handful of
reasons why checking out eBooks is
the new craze in more than 67 percent
of libraries across the country.
"This is really taking readers by
storm," said Andrew Beman-Cavallaro,
a computer/reference librarian at
the Bartow Public Library. "Young,
old, everyone is jumping on board to
download free eBooks from their local
library. Although eBooks have been
around for a while, it really peaked last
Christmas when everyone got Nooks,
Kindles, iPads and iPhones. Every
month, I see the use of our eBook pro-
gram increase with no end in sight."
Frostproof's Latt Maxcy Memorial Li-
brary is one of the county outlets that
is participating in the program.
"It has been very well received here
in Frostproof, as well as, in the county
as a whole," said Missy Hadden, who is
in charge of the library here.
Until only a month ago, the avail-
ability of free eBooks from libraries
was far less visible than it is now.
Although library eBooks were acces-
sible on Barnes & Noble's Nook, the
Sony Reader, smartphones, laptops
and other devices, Kindle users felt left
out. On Sept. 21, Amazon announced
that it was now going to open up its
popular Kindle device to library eB-
ooks, making Kindle books available at
more than 11,000 local libraries around
the country.-
Since Kindle is the world's biggest
selling e-reader, this move broke the
library eBook market wide open by
giving it massive exposure. Demand
for library eBooks will increase, pub-
lishing analysts predict, estimating
that roughly 15 million e-readers will
be purchased in the United States this
year.
Winter Haven Library was the first
to offer eBooks in Polk County in
November of last year. The concept
has since caught on and is offered in
seven more libraries in the county.
Using a subscription to OverDrive, a
global leader in digital books for li-
braries with support for iPod, iPhone,
iPad, Android, Sony Reader, Kindle,
and thousands of other mobile de-
vices, anyone with an e-reader device
can access thousands of book titles
with just one requirement a library
card. Simply browse categories in-
cluding audio books by genre, subject
or author name, choose your books,
download them to your e-reader and
when the determined loan period is
up, the file simply dissolves, making

the library now.


it a thing of the past to have tb worry
about returning your library books
on time to avoid the penalty of a late
charge.
"Some people have a stigma about
electronic books taking the place of
a real book in a person's hands," said
Beman-Cavallaro. "I tell them that
eBooks haven't taken the place of a
book, but put thousands more into
your hands. You can access count-
less titles from every category you
can think of, download books of your
choice in mere seconds and do it all
from the comfort of your own home
or even when you're on the go. It
makes reading easier, which encour-
ages people to read even more. This is
something that is here to stay."
Since Beman-Cavallaro teaches
computer classes at the library, he
is also in charge of assisting patrons
with the process of getting started
with eBooks. While most of his client
base are the older adults who aren't as
tech-savvy as the younger generation,
he claims their enthusiasm for the
new technology is generally "off the
charts," with fiction being the most
popular genre in demand by readers.
"They get a taste of it and then
they're hooked," said Beman-Caval-
laro. "When they see how easy it is to
download eBooks to their devices and
the brand new world that this opens
up to them, it's like seeing a kid with a
brand new toy. They go from curious
beginners to avid eBook fans who
obviously can't get enough of it."
Despite the many advantages to
accessing thousands of books on a
device small enough to fit into your
purse, pocket or briefcase, there are


still some gray areas to this new amaz-
ing avenue of technology. Beman-Ca-
vallaro points out that it is not inex-
pensive as Nooks, Kindles, and other
e-reading devices can range from the
low hundreds of dollars on up. Also,
in this economy people often can't
afford a higher electric bill or Internet
access. Although the Winter Haven
Library loans iPads in-house to their
patrons, if a person does not have an
e-reading device or a way to access a
computer in other areas of the county,
the amazing world that eBooks puts at
a person's fingertips will unfortunately
be out of reach.
Although the popularity of eBooks


"Andrew Beeman-Cavallaro holds a Kindle at
the Bartow Public Library.
has forced many book stores to close
down over recent years, traffic at pub-
lic libraries still remains strong. For
one thing, certain reference materials
are unlikely to make the jump into dig-
ital editions and there is an increasing
demand for the free Internet service as
more and more people are needing to
create job resumes.
More than 64 percent of libraries
report they are the only source of free
Internet access in their communities
with 70 percent of libraries report-
ing public use of Internet computers
increased in 2010.
"The boom of eBooks hasn't nega-
tively impacted the number of people
we see here at the Bartow Library at
all," said Beman-Cavallaro. "Librar-
ies aren't going anywhere just because
eBooks are now available. If anything,
our popularity is soaring because of it."

Frostproof kids revel in 'Trunk or Treat'


It's fall, it's football season, so why not dress
up as your favorite college mascot? Hunter
Massey made the cutest Gator in the state
Saturday. And, hey, it's never too young to
make them Gator boosters!

"Trunk or Treat" attracted kids, and grow ups, of all ages, shapes and costumes. This past Saturday Southside Baptist Church of Frostproof held
the annual event for area children. Volunteers from the church handed out candy to children of all ages. Children came dressed as witches, power
rangers, cowboys and much more. Volunteers said the smiles on the children's faces warmed their hearts.


Above: The event would be nothing without the great
volunteers who gave up a good chunk of their Saturday
night to make sure local kids had a great time.

there was no question she was one of the good witches,
not those nasty wicked kind.

More than just fighting fires


Frostproof firefighters don't spend
all their time simply responding to
fires and accidents.
In fact, a big part of what they do,
as hundreds of Frostproof youngsters
learned recently, is try to stop fires
before they ever get a chance to start.
Trucks and personnel from the
local department made a number of
stops recently as part of National Fire
Prevention week, providing students
with materials designed to convey
the message of what to do if involved
with a situation with fire.
There were numerous places to
visit. In the end all the teachers in
Frostproof Elementary, Ben Hill Grif-
fin Jr. Elementary School. Frostproof
Middle School science department,
First United Methodist Child Care
Center, Hope Child Care Center, First
Baptist Church Weekday Preschool
and the Frostproof Child Develop-
ment center received materials to
share with their kids.
Frostproof Fire Chief Bill Lord said
a number of local businesses and
individuals made contributions to
make the program possible.
"We appreciate everyone's partici-
pation in this program," Lord said.
"The information provided to these
students through contributions may
save lives in the event of a fire."
Contributors included: Church on
the Ridge, Spurlow's Outdoor Outfit-
ters, Watson's Pharmacy, Camp Inn
Resort, Whispering Pines, Carol's
Cuts and Curls, Country Motors, Don
Hodge Auto, Earnest R. Manning,
Frostproof Auto Parts, Frostproof
Growers Supply, Juli's Party, Music
Zone and Tina's Beauty Salon.

Bulldogs hope to make amends this Friday


Playoff berth could be on the line at Lakeland Christian


By BRIAN ACKLEY
NEWS@FROSTPROOFDEMOCRAT.COM
The Frostproof Bulldogs were
hoping to use Friday night's trip to
Tenoroc as a tune-up for their pivotal
district game next week at Lakeland
Christian.
But if last night's result is any indi-
cation, the Bulldogs are in danger of
once again missing out on the
playoffs.
Frostproof was listless throughout,
falling to 4-4 on the season, in losing
20-6.
"We we weren't ready to play. That's
my job as coach to have the team
ready to play, and we weren't ready to
play," Coach Price Harris said. "Hope-
fully we learned our lesson from it,
respecting our opponents. We don't
want to fear anybody, just respect
them all."
Titan quarterback Travis Tucker,
who proved, along with Darius Frasier,
to be an elusive targets all night for
the Bulldogs, scored from 34 yards out


late in the third quarter to effectively
put the game out of reach with just a
little over a minute to go in the third
quarter.
Frostproof did show a little life on
its ensuing possession, driving to the
Tenoroc 25, but a fourth-and-a-long-
one was stopped inches short at the
Titan 25 with 9:53 to play.
The Bulldogs got brief life less than
a minute later when Xavier Gaines,
an eighth grader, picked up a Tenoroc
fumble at the Titan 14.
Two plays later, Zack Jenkins rolled
left and found Jake Smith just over the
goal line to trim the Tenoroc lead to
20-6 with 8:16 to play, but Frostproof
did not seriously threaten after that.
Tenoroc, which came into the game
2-6, had been outscored by its op-
ponents 223-82 so far this season,
including a 49-0 loss at Lake Wales the
week before.
"Coming off a poor performance
means you have to work a little harder
because we're not doing the things we
need to do," Harris added. "We've got


Frostproof quarterback Zack Jenkins finds little running room on this keeper.
.. .


to refocus. It was not the type of game
that Frostproof is used to playing. It
was an embarrassment to the coach to
perform the way we performed. There
was a lot to fix."
If Frostproof thought it was going to
have an easy night, the Titans sent the
message early on that they would not.
The hosts, who needed seven plays
to cover 43 yards for the score, put
up points on their first possession,
parlaying a short punt, pass comple-
tion and personal foul into an even-
tual first and goal on the six. Two
plays later, Frasier went off left tackle
untouched. The PAT was good and
Tenoroc had a 7-0 lead less than five
minutes into the game.
A partially blocked punt set the
Titans up at the Frostproof 45 on their
next possession after the Bulldogs'
second straight three-and-out and
it looked as though Tenoroc would
take a two-touchdown lead. In fact, a
TD pass was called back on an illegal
procedure penalty, and eventually a

Friday Night Preview


WHAT: Frostproof Bulldogs at
Lakeland Christian Vikings.
WHEN: Friday night, 7 p.m.
WHERE: Viking Field, Lake-'
land Christian High School.
VIKING PLAYERS TO WATCH:
There are two, and they can be
very impressive. Quarterback
Christian Alexander has thrown
for a county-best 1,325 yards
and 20 touchdowns this season.
Running back T.J. Simmons is
a transfer from the Lakeland
Dreadnaughts program, and is
second in the county in rushing
with 1,349 yards. True, some of
those yards have been rolled up
against a less strong schedule
than Frostproof plays, but it's still
impressive nonetheless.
BULLDOG PLAYERS TO
WATCH: Two key starters are
back for this key district game,
lineman Dustin Saiz and Tod-
drick Gaines. Both were sitting
out three-game suspensions
handed down by the FHSAA after
the two were ejected from games
earlier this year. Both mill be.


needed to hit the ground run-
ning. As dangerous as Alexander
and Simmons can be, anyone in
Frostproof's defensive backfield
will be a true "player to watch" as
well.
THE SKINNY: A win does not
guarantee a playoff spot, but the
worse Frostproof would get is
a three-way tie for the district's
top spot with a win. Fort Meade
hosts Cardinal Mooney Friday,
and a Miner win coupled with
a Frostproof win means the two
local rivals will secure the two
Class 3A District 6 playoff spots
available. Lakeland Christian
can only play a spoiler,role since
they are the only one of the four
district teams to have lost twice
already, but they have the talent
to do that if Frostproof doesn't
bring their game up several
notches from where it was last
week at another Lakeland area
school, Tenoroc. Bulldogs offense
will have to make sure to get
touchdowns when they have the
chance.


BULLDOGS
FROM PAGE 13
35-yard field goal try sailed wide left.
But they did make good on their third
possession, which featured their third
c consecutive drive start in Frostproof
territory. Three plays after taking over,
and on a third-and-11, quarterback
Travis Tucker scampered down the left
sideline and outraced the Frostproof
defense for a 41-yard score. The PAT
kick was missed right, and with 6:56 to
go in the first half, the Bulldogs found
themselves in a somewhat surprising
13-0 hole.
Tenoroc got its great field position
when Frostproof failed to convert a fake
punt try at its own 39. A direct snap to Ty-
rone Hamilton instead of the punter on a
fourth-and-two came up a yard short.
Frostproof's offense struggled might-
ily in the half. Four of its five posses-
sions were three-and-out efforts, and
the fifth managed to get one first down
before punting.
The highlights were a blocked 32-
yard field goal try by Tenoroc on the
last play of the half, and a 51-yard punt
by Caleb Sharpe to put the first two
quarters in perspective. A 45-yard run
by Reggie Allen, which would have
been the highlight of the half, was
called back on a holding penalty.
The Bulldogs will vie for a possible
playoff spot next Friday when they
travel to Lakeland Christian. Although
a win doesn't guarantee a post-season
spot, it is likely that it would result in
one. Fort Meade would have to lose
to Cardinal Mooney Friday in order to
create a three-way tie for first among
Frostproof, Fort Meade and Cardinal

Mooney. That would prompt a three-
way tiebreaker. Should Frostproof and
Fort Meade both win two nights from
now, they will both advance to post
season play.
"We've got to stop MichaelWheary,"
Harris said of their showdown with the Vi-
kings. "He's their best player. Second best
player is their running back T.J. Simmons.
He is pretty special. That's two guys that
we make sure we keep in control."
Wheary is number one on Polk
County with 723 receiving yards so far
this fall.
"We feel like Coach Merson has
a good game plan against them on
defense, and offensively, we've got to
do a better job of blocking on offense,"
Harris said. "We've got to do a bunch
better job blocking and taking what the
defense gives us. We didn't do a good
job of that last week. If there's some-
thing they are giving us, we have to take
advantage of it."

RENT: Help needed
FROM PAGE 1A
hookup deposit cost which currently is
$300.
City Manager T.R. Croley said Frost-
proof's auditors are just starting to
review the books now from the period
when about 300 new customers came
on line as part of the city's sewer line
expansion project. She cautioned, how-
ever, that with new customers came
new expenses, so it is not yet clear if
the additional revenue, when balanced
against the new expenses, would be
sufficient enough to consider reducing
customer charges.
She said the audit would likely be
done in February.
"We are looking each month at the
revenues versus the expenses that
come in," Croley said. "We do not have
an average yet because the final ones
(customers) that came on haven't been
on long enough yet."
Much of the reason the rates are so
high, she explained, is to pay off debt
service on phase one of the sewer proj-
ect, which was mandated by the federal
government, about 12 years ago. City
officials at that time were counting -
on a grant that eventually never came
through, and put the city in about a
$500,000 hole.
Last year was the first time in six


years the city was able to sufficiently
meet its debt requirements and obliga-
tions on that project.
"We are recovering and have recov-
ered from six years ago, but its minimal
at this point," Croley said. "Our audi-
tors stood before us last year and said
'you're looking much better bet let me
caution you to not become complacent
and not forget where you've been and
how easy it will be to return there if
you're not cautious.' So that's why we
want to come back to adjust the rates
until we have some firm figures to show
you where we are."
Hutto suggested that the minimum
gallon requirement be raised, even if
the rates are not, to help customers.
Currently, the minimum usage is 3,000
gallons a month. Croley said it used to
be 6,000 a month, and Hutto thought
there was a time when it was as high as
10,000 gallons.
"I've got customers who don't flush
their toilets but once or twice a day,"
she said.
Croley said it would be potentially
more damaging to change fees and
rates now, and then have to go back
and raise them again if the audit num-
bers came in out of whack.
"We're not putting any change out
until we have some firm figures,"
Croley reiterated. "It would be more
disruptive to you and the residents
of the community if we reduced your


rates and two months later turn around
and realize we made a mistake because
we didn't have the exact figures."
The readiness to serve fee is a
monthly minimum charge imposed by
the city when utilities are shut off but
not disconnected, in effect for example
when homeowners go north for the
summer, or landlords are in between
tenants.
That fee is about $37 a month, or one
half the monthly minimum charge for
water and sewer.
The matter was further complicated
because three of the five current city
council members are themselves land-
lords in at least one form or another.
Councilman Ralph Waters said he has a
house he owns in which a family mem-
ber lives and gives him money toward
the monthly expenses there. Other than
that, he does not own any additional
properties.
Councilwoman Diana-Webster Biehl
owns one rental property in the city
limits, and additional rental units out-
side Frostproof. Anne Dickinson also
has rental properties within the city's
boundaries.
City Attorney Mark Smith was di-
rected to get a written opinion from the
Florida Commission on Ethics to see if
in fact the council member's property
ownership would disqualify them from
voting on any or all of the four issues
identified at the meeting.


Biehl said she too has encountered
difficulties in finding a tenant to live in
the city.
"They refused to consider anything
in the city because they knew what
was involved," she said. "Perception of
the renters is very real. All that counts
to them is the utility bill has garbage,
water, sewer and wastewater-and they
see $96 minimum and that's very in-
timidating."
Despite that, she didn't offer much
encouragement to those at the meet-
ing.
"I don't know what options we have,"
she added. "I don't know that we have
it our power to change the rates in a
sufficient enough manner to have it
have the results that we would like.
I'm not sure that we have within our
grasp, while being fiscally responsible
to the city, the mechanism to do some
dramatic rate change or fee structure
changes, but I do want us to take a look
at it."
A number of people, those in the
audience and city officials alike, agreed
that it was not only an issue for land-
lords, but everyone in the city limits.
Several city leaders did also express
concerns that making exceptions
for one type of business, in this case
landlords, could lead to others who
have multiple business locations in the
city asking for the same treatment in
regards to their business license fees.

CRASH: Victim loses life


FROM PAGE IA

were not able to airlift any of the vic-
tims to get more immediate treatment
because of inclement weather that
afternoon, a spokesperson said.
While the investigation is continuing,
police added that they did not think
impairment was not a factor in the ac-
cident.
According to law enforcers, Crossman
was operating a Ford Taurus heading
north on U.S. Hwy. 27, about a half-
mile north of the intersection with
County Road 630, when for unknown
reasons she left the roadway. Police
said she over corrected, and began to
rotate, propelling the vehicle into the
southbound lanes of U.S. 27. Police also
noted that is was raining at the time of
the accident.
The Taurus collided with two ve-
hicles, a blue Chrysler Dodge Dynasty
and a beige Buick Rainer SUV.
Crossman's boyfriend, Randolph
Douglas Vanderzee, 46, who was in the
passenger seat and his son, Douglas
James Vanderzee, 19, who was in the


backseat, were both transported to
Lakeland Regional Medical Center in
critical but stable condition. The pair
also had a listed address of 126 Lincoln
Road NW in Lake Placid.
Crossman was pronounced dead at
the scene. Police said she was wearing a
seat belt, but that the other two occu-
pants of the vehicle were not.
The occupants of the Dodge, Mat-
thew Bass and Kylen Pisklo were taken
by ambulance to Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center in Sebring
with what were described as "non life
threatening" injuries. Police said it is
not known whether or not the two were
wearing seat belts. The pair live at 725
Triumph Drive in Sebring.
The sole occupant of the Buick, Di-
ana Gross, 58, of 381 Blue Jack Trail in
Frostproof was also transported to the
Sebring hospital with minor injuries.
Police say she was wearing her seat
belt.
A portion of U.S. Hwy. 27 remained
closed for about six hours while the
accident investigation was ongoing.
Police said no charges are pending.


FRISBIE: The pain of Vietnam

alone and waiting patiently to get my
attention.
When our eyes met, she snapped me
as sharp a salute as ever I have gotten.
I returned her salute and made a
most non-military response: "Thank
you, Sweetheart."
Perhaps some day she will serve her
country in uniform.
Or perhaps she will be on hand to
greet soldiers returning from some fu-


ture war, and will greet them with that
same sharp salute.
In either event, she will serve her
country well.


(S. L. Frisbie is retired from both
journalism and the military. One of the
keynote speakers at Fort Meade said that
Colin Powell was a classmate of his in
Officer Candidate School. "When the rest
of us would go out partying, he would
go back to his quarters and study.")

LCOUN TY REPORT



CFDC votes in favor of independence

Students believe politics is taking over

By DIANE NICHOLS I


DNICHOL S @ OL KCOULNT'DEMI'-CR AT.CMr
After a failed email voting system in
late August and a longstanding debate
on the issue, it all came down to a show
of hands Monday whether the Univer-
sity of South Florida Polytechnic should
separate from' USF.
The Central Florida Development
Council handed down a 32-6 vote in
favor of the split, which now goes to
the Florida University System's Board
of Governors to decide at its Nov. 9-10
meeting in Boca Raton.
The structure of the meeting was to
give both sides ample time to present
their \iews. Daxid Touchton, a certified
public accountant and CFDC member
kicked off the session by openly shar--
ing his opposition to the separation.
According to Touchton, a recent survey
taken showed 85 percent of students
wanted to stay with USF and in a faculty
survey. 35 responded and 27 wanted to
stay Nwith the university system.
"Business models are what deter-
mines success," said Touchton. "If we've
got a good one and it's working well,
leave it alone. W\'hat I see is the USF
Poly model has raised $21 million from
Polk County, $5 million from the City
of Lakeland and another $10 million
promised in infrastructure. It has been
gifted 550 acres with the promise of
another 600,000 down the road. I don't
think it's time to split here, folks."
In rebuttal, Sen. JD Alexander, the
chairman of the State Senate Budget
Committee, claimed having a polytech-
nic in the county would solve some of
the economic burdens in the region.
'"We've been struggling here and
across the state with unemployment for
the last number of years," said Alexan-


Some USF students are not happy about
Polytechnic being made into a separate school
induding (from left) Damon Dennis, Sage
Stevens and Jeremiah Chapman.
der. "I happen to think that this effort
will greatly serve Polk County as well as
the state of Florida."
Alexander, R-Lake Wales, said the
state is already in favor of creating a
polytechnic and has a base budget of
$21 million in their funding to support
it along with an anticipated $40 mil-
lion coming into the campus every year
from student tuition and activities. In
short, Alexander slammed those op-
posing a separate USF Polytechnic in
Polk County by saying, "The issue isn't
whether we're allowed to create one,
we've got one."
Further, Alexander stated people
should not be fooled by USF's sudden
participation as they have done nothing
to support the vision of the polytech-
nic's Lakeland campus. He stated that
anything USF was doing today was in
response to a threat rather than what
they truly want to do with the campus
and that once the pressure from the
current situation was off, they would go
back to "doing nothing."
Gene Engle serves on the board of
trustees for USF and is chairman of the
USF Poly campus board. His concern
centered on the students themselves and
the doubts he had about attendance.

Members of the Central Florida Development Council vote whether Polytechnic should split from
the University of South Florida Monday. They voted 32-6 in favor of separating.


"I'm very concerned if this will be
successful," said Engle. "I'm worried we
won't have the students because they
want a campus environment. USF has
a tremendous draw. A lot of high school
seniors say they want to go to the uni-
versity to get their diploma."
Donned in USF Bulls jerseys repre-
senting the university they love, a hand-
ful of students rallied as a way to have
a voice even though it seemed to have
fallen on deaf ears.
"The senator says there will be all
this money from student enrollment,
but I've talked to a ton of my peers and-
we're ready to leave," said Sage Stevens,
a business major and student govern-
ment senator. "If it's going to split,
then why are we here? We're losing our
brand, we're losing our identity and
that's not what we came here for. We
came for USE We came to be Bulls and
that's what we paid for as consumers.
It seems like politics is taking over our


school and it shouldn't be done that
way. We aren't heard and to me that
means there isn't any reason to stay."
Jeremiah Chapman, also a business-
major at USF, echoed that sentiment
and also warned all the "suits" in the
- room that the students won't be there
like they are counting on. Many are
already drafting a referendum to give to
the Board of Governors by their Novem-
ber negotiations.
"It's amazing to me after this meeting
that this room filled with businessmen
aren't taking into consideration where
they are going to get their income from
for their future polytechnic model," said
Chapman. "Students aren't going to go
there. They aren't going to go to a campus
in the middle of a cow pasture and lose
their brand when USF is only 40 minutes
away. These politicians are cutting off a
leg and trying to run just as fast. We're
staying connected to USF no matter what
goes down from this point on."


Ceremony inducts new POPS class


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER @LAKEWALESNEWS.COM
Twenty-five students, most who
attend Bartow and Lake Wales high
schools, and their parents were in-
ducted into the 2011-2012 POPS
(Professional Opportunities Program for
Students, Inc.) class, in a ceremony held
Saturday, Oct. 29, upstairs at Bartow
Public Library.
POPS, a non-profit, community-
based organization, provides students
the opportunity to explore, discover and
experience a series of different career
goals.
Florida Sen. Gary Siplin, D-Orlando,
instrumental in the formation of the
Orlando-based program, who was the
featured guest speaker, called Sen. JD
Alexander, R-Lake Wales, a good friend.
Stripling said without Alexander's sup-
port the program might not have come
to Bartow and Lake Wales. It was a sen-
timent echoed by a number of dignitar-
ies and guests when invited to address
the students and parents.
"We are \ery proud to have the POPS
program here in Barrow," said Bartow
Mayor Pat Huff. "It's a wonderful
program."
Because Siplin had another event he
needed to attend, the program was ad-
justed to accommodate the senator, and
instead of being last to speak, he led the
presentations. It also afforded him the,
opportunity to participate in the induc-
tion ceremony when first students and
then parents were called to the front for


State Sen. Gary Siplin (D-19th District), who
was instrumental in the creation of POPS
(Professional Opportunities Program for
Students), tells inductees and parents one
secret of success."It is hard to defeat someone
who is persistent," he said.
a pinning and congratulation line.
Not all who addressed students were
from government agencies, which
included Polk County Schools, City of
Bartow, and the Polk County Sheriff's
Office. "Words of Wisdom" were given
by Dr. Victor Wright. In his presentation
he spoke of what it takes in order to
succeed.
"You have to show up and you


have to be enthusiastic. Those are the
ones who succeed," he said. He also
counseled against taking the path of
least resistance. "Always take the most
challenging courses."
His remarks were not limited to
students. He lectured parents not to
accept "C" grades" from their children,
and to let their sons and daughters
know anything less than a "B" was un-
acceptable, which he would later tie in
with an admonition to the students. "If
your parents don't punish you, society
will."
His parting words were directed spe-
cifically to the students, to be masters of
their own destiny.
"You have to have this expectation of
yourself. You are leaders. Some people
can't or won't. You will," he said. He
added that was an imperative. "The
community needs you. The greater
community needs you. You've got to be
a leader.
"Make the choice," implored Wright.
"Make the right choice."
Speaking on behalf of Polk County
Schools, School Board Member Hazel
Sellers said the path the students have
chosen will not always be an easy one.
"I know each and every one (of you)
has potential. What makes you different
is, you have decided to 'stretch' your-
selves," said Sellers. "That, ladies and
gentlemen, is what I see in you today.
You are going to face challenges along
the way. But what you learn today is
how to get through these obstacles."

Knights of Columbus Council 7091 Youth Spelling Bee winners Melissa Baptiste (second from left)
and her sister Cindy Baptiste, are flanked by their proud parents, Emmeline and Francin Baptiste.
Melissa won the grades 5-6 spell-off in competition with 10 other students while Cindy spelled
her way to victory in the grades 7-8 contest that featured four young spellers.

Winter Haven sisters win


youth spelling bee contest
.youth-'' tes


The Baptiste sisters of Winter Haven
spelled their way to victory in Knights of
Columbus Council 7091's 2011 Knights of
Columbus Youth Spelling Bee. A total of 15
students from the greater Winter Haven
area competed in two separate spell offs
held in the Winter Haven Public Library
Both students at the Winter Haven
Christian Academy, Cindy lean Bap-
tiste won the grades 7-8 spell off that
included a total of four contestants,
while her younger sister, Nielissa Jean
Baptiste, withstood challenges from 10
other students to win the first place rib-
bon in the Grades 5-6 competition.
In the grades 7-8 contest, Andrew
Kingham finished second, while the
third place ribbon was won by Pal Patel,
who finished first in her division in last
year's K of C Youth Spelling Bee. Srihitha
Akula was the runner-up in this year's
grades 5-6 competition, with Natalie
Chase placing third.
According to their parents, Emmeline
and Francin Baptiste, the girls obtained
lists of sample words made available by
the K of C and studied them each day in
the weeks leading up to the. competition.
"They worked together very hard to
prepare for the spelling bee," Francin


Baptiste said.
The top three finishers in each divi-
sion received ribbons. Because there
was no district contest this year, the
Baptiste sisters automatically advanced
to the regional K of C Youth Spelling Bee
scheduled for early December, and if
they succeed on that level, will compete
for the state championships.
Participation in the K of C Youth
Spelling Bee was free for boys and girls
enrolled in private and public schools,
as well as home schooled students.
Before the event, co-chairmen William
Morris and Bob Connell, and his wife,
Ellie Connell, distributed fliers and lists
of sample words to schools in Winter
Haven and other Polk County com-
munities. Fliers also were posted in the
library and other conspicuous places
throughout the community.
Members of K of C Council 7091 who
assisted Morris in staging the event
were Connell, who served as emce,.
as well as Ken Nelson, Richard Gerst,
Sr., D. J. Cloum and Frank DiLeo, all of
whom served as judges. Two spouses
- Ellie Connell and Shirley Cloum -
handled registration and helped with
other tasks.


Strike 'interim' from title;


Sauer now
By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER @YOTURH INESCITYHER ULD.COM .
"Welcome to the cuckoo's nest."
With those words, Haines City Mayor
RoyTyler officially congratulated Ken
Sauer upon being officially selected city
manager following the unanimous 4-0
vote taken at the Oct. 21 city commission
public meeting; Commissioner Joanne
Wilkinson was absent due to illness.
Sauer's ascension to permanent-status
came two weeks after "word on the-
street" had it that at the Oct. 6 Haines
City city commission public meeting
that his status as interim city manager
would officially change. However, at that
session, the matter, which was the eighth
item on the consent agenda that part_
of the agenda commissioners vote upon
without discussion was removed at the
request of vice-mayor Adam Burgess, who
asked it be revisited at the next meeting,
slated for Oct. 20. The request was agreed
to by commissioners, in order that public
input could be solicited. No one from the
public elected to address commissioners.
Just prior to the vote, though, Burgess
expressed a concern. :
"The only concern I have is, do we have
a job description?" he asked. He was told
by Tyler, that the city charter specifically
prohibits commissioners from interfering.
Tyler turned to city attorney Tom Cloud
for verification.
"There are a couple of paragraphs in
the charter in which the city manger is
the chief exeuctive," Cloud said. He also
referred to Section 10-C of the charter,
in response to another question by Tyler
whether the charter contained remedies
and penalties should commissioners
violate the charter.
The reasoning behind postponing the
vote to confirm Sauer as city manager
was done in light of the controversy that '
had ensued following the resignation of
Sauer's predecessor and then-immediate
superior, Ann Toney-Deal. She resigned
April 21, just ahead of the swearing in
of Don Mason as a city commissioner.
Mason, who made her tenure a cam-
paign issue, unseated the incumbent Phil


city manager
Hinklde. It was believed that Mason would
have provided the majority
vote necessary to have her
fired. Had that occurred,
she would have received a
lesser severance package
than the one she presented
to commissioners the night
of her resignation offer.
That package set off a SAUER
storm of protest as it was
not placed on the April 21 agenda and
was only introduced by then-Mayor
Horace West shortly before commission-
ers were to adjourn. As a result, a closed
session was hastily called in order for
the commissioners to review the terms
of the proposed resignation. The closed
session lasted less than 10 minutes ac-
cording to several estimates. When com-
missioners reconvened, they took up the
proposal but did not allow any public
input. Toney-Deal's terms were accepted
in a 3-2 vote, with Tyler and Burgess
opposing.
As a consequence, public outcry was
such that an unscheduled public session
was convened April 27. It resulted in a
slight modification of the terms of sever-
ance, from 18 to 12 months. Again, no
public input was permitted. Following a
lawsuit filed by two Haines City busi-
ness operators to invalidate the sever-
ance package, but which the court ruled
against, the Toney-Deal matter might
have rested were it not for the discovery
she was now also collecting unemploy-
ment compensation. That sparked a
recent recall petition drive that currently
is under review by the court.
Sauer was paid $81,905 as assistant
city manager, and that was bumped up
to $98,000 while he served as interim city
manager. As city manager, his annual
salary Mill be $120,000. His contract also
includes health insurance, vacation and
sick leave, as well as other terms, such
as annual reviews (after the first two
years). If terminated, all he will receive is
five months severance and any unused
sick leave, vacation and holiday pay. He
will also be required to provide 90 days
should he choose to resign.


PMoA showcasing Jessica


FROM POLK MUSEUM OF ART
Polk Museum ofArt will display pho-
tographs from Jessica Lange's Mexico
portfolio in a new exhibition, "Jes-
sica Lange: In Mexico," which will run
through Dec. 10.
.Throughout the recent decades, as
photography has been thrust onto the
scene as a legitimate art form, pho-
tographers have increasingly defined
themselves more personally. In Lange's
photography, art lovers witness a fusion
of intimacy and curiosity, a museum
spokesman explained. Far from reputa-
tions as mere journalists or commercial
sentimentalists, photographers have be-
come the eyes of the art world and the
bridge between manual creation and
technological production, and Lange is
no exception.
She focuses on the personal side of
contemporary photography. Although
the images are unmistakably Mexican,
this portfolio showcases more than
glimpses into another culture; Lange
successfully uses a photographer's sen-
sibilities to conjure a broad representa-
tion of her own experience.
Lange, a critically acclaimed and
Oscar-winning actress, studied art at the
University of Minnesota before launch-
ing a modeling and acting career. Her
movie credits include "Tootsie" and
"Blue Sky," both of which earned her
Academy Awards. She also has won
four Golden Globes and an Emmy. In
addition, she has received much atten-

MidFlorida launches website


MidFlorida plans to launch a newly rede-
signed website at www.midflorida.com on
Nov. 1.
The site is user-friendly and has improved
navigation, the bank said.
As part of a soft launch process, both the
new and older version of the website will be
available at the same time. Visitors will be
able to choose to use the new site or to con-
tinue to the former version until the middle
of December, when access to the original
site will be discontinued.
"Our website is just another Form of a
branch an eBranch, if you will and is the
way a good portion of our membership and-
the community communicates and receives
their information," said Kevin Jones, Mid-
Florida's President and CEO. "By revamping
our site, it will allow for more fluid updates
and will interface more easily with our


subsidiary sites. Plans are to incorporate a
corporate blog in the near future as well. The
new design and enhanced features will be
a welcomed change for both the novice as
well as the tech-savvy user."
In addition to the revised look, updates
include an easily accessible rate search
-on the main page, a branch listing with
mapped search results, and a consolidated
resources section offering financial tools,
forms and a glossary. Other major changes
to the site include an expanded search
feature that will return results based on a
Google search of the website as well as a
knowledge-based search, offering results
in a frequently asked question-and-answer
format. One thing that did not change was
the location of the Online Services log-in
section for the convenience of the most
common users of the site.

Fresh solutions for holiday leftovers


W en Homer Simpson was asked
what he does with holiday left-
overs, he replied: "Leftovers?
Never heard of them!" Hopefully, the
rest of us will not stuff ourselves during
Thanksgiving and other winter celebra-
tions. The question remains, what to do
with leftovers?
Dried out, been-there-done-that holi-
day cuisine can inspire" us to go on a
hunger strike. Simply warming them up
can lead to a creeping feeling of post-
holiday blues, and their eventual disap-
pearance into the garbage or under the
table for Fido to take care of.
This year, however, we can adopt a
new plan and help our leftovers morph
into delicious and nutritious cuisine.
To accomplish this, we need to think
outside the sugar and butter bowls.
Pastry rarely assumes the title "leftover"
and tends to vanish before the sun sets
on each holiday. Leftover veggies may
be cut up and added to soups or stews
made mainly with fresh produce (see
soup recipe below). Most leftovers con-
sist of turkey and ham. Why? Because in
the excitement of an approaching feast
we tend to buy enough meat to feed the
United States Marine Band!
Remember, the constitution does
not require us to put on extra weight
during the winter holidays. So eat and
drink less and be merry ... Below are
some leftover solutions for you to enjoy.
Happy and healthy holidays!

Number of children with Kidney stones surges


DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My 6-year-old.
very healthy, active grandson was just
diagnosed as having kddney stones. His
pediatrician said it is mosdy genetic,
but no one else in the family has had
kidney stones. A friend told us she head
that stones could be caused by drinking
Gatorade. My grandson has drunk a lot
of Gatorade. He does not eat processed
meat, nor does he have much salt in
his diet. From the Internet, I came up
with the enclosed article, which linked
Gatorade to kidney stones. I feel that
someone needs to inform parents that
too much Gatorade in children can af-
fect health adversely. G.S.
ANSWER: An increase in children
having kidney stones has been noticed.
Some authorities have speculated that
the increase in stones might be linked
to children's greater intake of salty foods
like potato chips, french fries and other
heavily salted snacks. The sodium in salt
leads to a rise in the amount of calcium
* lost in the urine, and, therefore, an in-
crease in kidney-stone production.
Eight ounces of Gatorade has 110
mg of sodium. New guidelines for daily
sodium intake is 1,500 mg. To reach
that limit by drinking Gatorade, one
would have to drink 13 8-ounce cans
or 9 12-ounce cans. Blaming the surge
in the number of children on Gatorade
seems iffy" to me.
Your grandson would be better off sub-
stituting some of his consumption of Ga-
torade with water. He needs to cut back on
his consumption of salt from other foods
too. Gatorade keeps him hydrated. but he
* can stay hydrated with water. Dehydration
is a proven cause of kidney stones.
I welcome other readers' opinions on
this issue.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Because of a
backache, my doctor ordered X-rays. En-
closed is the summary from the radiologist.
I am concerned about the abdominal
aorta, but my doctor's office doesn't
seem to be. I would like to know the
cause and what to do about it. I am 74.
Also, what does "grossly normal

alignment" mean? NM.
ANSWER: Your X-ray report remarks
on your aorta, the body's largest artery,
which travels from the heart to the
bottom of the abdomen. The report
says, "There is heavy calcification of the
abdominal aorta." [n translation, that
means you have artery hardening of the
aorta, officially called arteriosclerosis.
Most 74-year-olds have some calci-
fication of their aorta. The body uses
calcium like we use spackle, to fill in
cracks and holes in walls. The aorta
takes a pounding. It receives blood from
the heart at high pressure. Calcium fills
in defects that come to the aorta from
years of living. In addition, cholesterol.
and other material coat the lining of the
aorta, and calcium deposits on those
materials too. To minimize further depo-
sition of calcium, keep your blood pres-
sure controlled, cut back on foods that
increase cholesterol, like red meats and
whole dairy products, up your intake of
whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and
stay as active as you can.
ATour last question about normal
alignment refers to your backbones.
They're stacked up properly.

House full for Bartow's Relay for Life kickoff


Bartow ranks 15th in state in raising
money for American Cancer Society


By JEFF ROSLOW
iROSL, (' POL KCOLUN T' DL.1CR AT.COM
Wanting to know why purple was the
color most often used in fighting can-
cer? Pat Calandros looked it up on the
Internet. She said she found a lot that
was interesting.
It was the first color of dye used in the
United States. It is the color of a state
during elections when it is neither red
for Republican nor blue for Democrats.
And in Las Vegas it is the color of $5,000
chips.
"But the most important thing," she
told the 175 relayers at the Bartow Relay
for Life kickoff, is "It gives you hope."
When you're stressed, she said, wear
purple.
And in calling the hundreds who take
part in the Relay for Life each year he-
roes, captains handed their teammates
purple capes.
"Now that you have a cape, put it on
and we'll remain calm," she said.
Calandros and others who organize
the annual Relay for Life in Bartow-
this will be the 1lth year-gathered at
the Assbciate Reformed Presbyterian
Church Monday, Oct. 24, to kick off the
event. She used Batman and Superman
look-a-likes to make her point about
heroes.
"A hero is someone who does some-
thing good and doesn't get paid for it in
anyway," she said.
Last year Bartow's Relay for Life raised
about $179,000 for the American Cancer
Society, which ranked it 15th in the
.state for the most successful Relay for
Life, Chairman Joe Hall said.
"The reason for this is because of the
teams and sponsors," Hall told those

One of this year's Relay for Life ambassadors
is Bartow High School student Rissy Bustos-
Fernandez, 14, shown with Pat Calandros.
Rissy is undergoing treatment for leukemia
that she was diagnosed with in December
2010. The other ambassador is Tina Maguire,
who is recovering from leukemia.


Gerald Tucker knows he can wear pink. He and
his grandson, Tucker Bracken, attended the
kickoff of the Bartow Relay for Life Monday,
Oct. 24. Tucker earned a flag at the event
marking that his team "Can't Tucker Us Out,"
raised $25,000 for the American Cancer Society
last year.
who attended tre opening, then an-
nounced which teams were the tops in
raising money.
The team that ranked the highest was
"Can't Tucker Me Out," and its captain
Gerald Tucker received a banner for it
raising $25,000 last year. He accepted
the plaque and when asked to speak, he
didn't have anything to say.
"I've known Gerald for many years
and I've never known him for not hav-
ing anything to say," Calandros said.
Teams that won bronze medals for rais-
ing at least $2,500 were First Baptist Church
of Bartow, Lane Construction, Spessardt
Holland Elementary School, First United
- Methodist Church, Madrid Engineering,
Bartow Fire Department, Chili Can Make a
Difference andWaling Builders.
Teams that won silver medals for
raising at least $3,500 included Bartow
Police Department, Ruby Tuesday's,
Highland City Elementan School and
the Junior Service League of Bartow.
Teams that won gold medals for rais-
ing at least $5,000 were Floral Lakes,
Sumnmerlin Class of 1959, Ashland Inc.
and Polk County Clerk of Courts.
Teams that won platinum medals for
raising at least $7,500 were Mosaic Inc.
and Dund Fortune.
And while those were exciting nu m -
bers for Hall to reveal, he wants to raise
more than that.
"That is a lot but this year we're going
to raise more than that," he said.
In trying to get more teams to par-
ticipate in what has become an annual
weekend "party" in Bartow, Calandros
pointed out to make a team people do not
have to belong to a business to be part of a
team. They just need to have some people

can have the days they need. This is a
quality that often goes unnoticed, but
is vital to morale and service continu-
ity. She also prepares the technolo-
gist schedules without complaint and
works closely with me when schedul-

-point of care and does a fine job."


PSC surpasses state, nation on RN exam


Polk State College nursing students
have outperformed the state and na-
tion on the National Council Licensure
Examination for registered nurses.
Through the third quarter, an aver-
age of 97.78 percent of Polk State nurs-
ing students passed the NCLEX-RN,
the licensing exam required to become
a registered nurse.
By comparison, the state's average
passage rate through the third quarter
was 89.21 percent, and the nation's was
88.36 percent.
Polk State College President Eileen
Holden said, "Polk State Health Sci-
ences has an incredible reputation,
and the performance of our nursing
students on these standardized exams
is one of the big reasons. Our faculty
are first-rate, and our students are awe-
some. I'm afraid that sometimes folks


in our community miss the fact that
our students don't just compete with
other state and community colleges -
they compete on a national level with
the best programs around. And the
data doesn't lie: Polk is excelling. And
when we excel, that's good for health-
care in our communities."
Polk State's nursing program has been
in existence since 1965, and its students
have consistently exceeded the state
and nation in terms of performance on
the NCLEX-RN, said Annette Hutcher-
son, director of the nursing department.
"We have qualified students inter-
ested in doing well, excellent faculty
that provide a solid education and local
hospitals that provide excellent clinical
opportunities for our students to put
into practice what they've learned in
class," she said.


Holden said Polk State is proud
to provide its community with well-
trained nurses.
"We are very proud of the fact that
someone from Polk County who wants
to fill a high-need, high-skill position
in the healthcare sector doesn't have to
leave this community to get an out-
standing education. The fact that an
excellent education can be so afford-
able and accessible that's a magical
combination," she said.
Polk State College's nursing program
serves about 400 students in any given
term, and 60 percent of the county's
registered nurses graduated from the
program. Earlier this year, Polk State
started offering an RN to BSN program,
allowing registered nurses who hold
associate's degrees to earn their bach-
elors of science in nursing.


Study: Changing old drug into new OCD treatment


By LETITIA STEIN
ST. PETERSBURG TIMES


One child feared that stepping on
a crack would harm his mother, just
like the old nursery rhyme warned.
Another child wouldn't touch any-
thing that had fallen on the floor.
For these children and thousands
like them, what at first may sound
like a silly aversion can evolve into
an all-consuming phobia. But obses-
sive compulsive disorder is difficult
to treat, particularly in children.
It's hard to find talk therapy geared
to children. And many parents are
reluctant to try drug treatment, fear-
ful of the side effects or the stigma of
the antidepressants used to control
OCD.
Now University of South Florida
researchers are offering an unlikely
alternative.
With $1.1 million from the Nation-
al Institutes of Health, the university
is studying a treatment for childhood
OCD that uses an antibiotic tradi-
tionally prescribed for tuberculosis.
The medication, D-cycloserine or
DCS, appears to enhance the brain's
ability to extinguish the fears that
feed into OCD.
Lead researcher Eric Storch, a USF
psychologist, already has seen prom-
ising results in a small, pilot trial of
the antibiotic in children with OCD.
Now, with the NIH grant, he is-
leading a study that will eventu-
ally include 150 children between
the ages of 7 and 17. Half of th6m
will receive the antibiotic, a pill
taken before each of seven therapy
sessions. The others will receive a
placebo.
All of the children will get a form


of talk therapy known as cognitive
behavioral therapy designed to ad-
dress and combat the fears at the
root of their OCD.
"The beauty is they are getting the
gold standard of care," said Storch,
noting that more than 80 percent
of children with OCD will see some
improvement with therapy alone,
although about half will still struggle
with OCD symptoms. The drug may
improve results.
"It's kind of like running a mara-
thon with a 10-pound ankle weight,"
he said of childhood OCD, estimated
to affect between one'and four per-
cent of youth. "It's very hard to do all
of the things that a child would want
to do, or would be expected to do,
such as school or homework."
That's the case for 8-year-old Ben
Watson of New Tampa, one of the
first children enrolled in the study.
Ben's symptoms began about three
years ago after he learned about
germs in school. His mother, Emily
Watson, recalls that her son came
home with lots of questions about
germs. He started requiring hand
sanitizer when they were out shop-
ping and he would trip and touch
the floor.
Soon hand-washing was an exten-
sive ritual, lasting as long as it took
him to count to 100 or say his ABC's.
Ben's germ fear made it difficult
for him to pet animals at the zoo.
Recently, he became hysterical about
touching a bird at Sea World.
"It's so different with all OCDs. It's
not always flipping the light switch
50 times," Emily Watson said of a
common phobia. "There's no rhyme
or reason to it."
Under the trial design, she doesn't


know if Ben is receiving the tubercu-
losis medication or the placebo, but
the therapy results are promising.
Ben was encouraged to take a
lollipop from the floor and lick it,
reinforcing that he had nothing to be
afraid of. Now therapists are help-
ing Ben to address other concern-
ing behaviors, such as his tendency
to erase and rewrite certain letters
when doing school work. Complicat-
ing matters further for Ben is that he
also has attention-deficit hyperactiv-
ity disorder (ADHD) and Tourette's
Syndrome, which sometimes occur
in kids with OCD.
"It is making a difference," Emily
Watson said. "He is at the point now
where he'll drop something on the
floor, he'll stick it in his mouth and
he's so proud of himself because it
doesn't bother him any more."
She said the family likes know-
ing that their participation could
help other children with OCD. And
while they have a long drive to the
research office in St. Petersburg,
it helps that Ben is receiving the
therapy at no charge, as is customary
with clinical trials.
So far, the study has enrolled a
half-dozen children, including a
family that comes from Georgia each
week. Researchers plan to see each
child for 10 sessions of therapy.
And the hope, Storch said, is that
by successfully treating OCD early
in life, children will grow up to live
as adults without the burden of the
disorder.
"A child's brain is developing at
this early standpoint," he said. "If we
can address things and teach them,
then the brain can almost reprogram
itself."

Rising for the Rays


If you insist upon exposing your skin
to the well-documented harms of solar
radiation (all in the name of getting a
glowing tan), it might behoove you to
sunbathe or visit a tanning booth in the
morning, rather than later in the day.
University of North Carolina Chapel
Hill scientists say that the timing of
exposure to ultraviolet rays appears to
influence the onset of skin cancer. In
mouse studies, they discovered that
morning exposure increased the risk
of cancer 500 percent over identical
afternoon exposures. They believe the
disparity may have something to do
with cyclical levels of a particular DNA
repair molecule, which is more abun-
dant earlier in the day.
Humans also have this molecule and
operate on a similar 24-hour circadian
clock as mice, but unlike the rodents,
people are generally nocturnal. Thus,
the researchers say the opposite finding
may hold true for people.
"Our research would suggest that
restricting sunbathing or visits to
the tanning booth to morning hours
would reduce the risk of skin cancer in
humans," said senior study author Aziz
Sancar, a professor of biochemistry and
biophysics. "However, further studies
in humans are needed before we can
make any definitive
recommendations."
In the meantime, wait inside for
further news.

most technologies are too expensive or
impractical to be applied broadly.
Over the years, a variety of natural,
cheaper alternatives have been tested
- sawdust, peanut shells, sugar cane
- but with mixed results. Brazilian
scientists say they may have found the
perfect material banana peels.
Researchers at the Univergidade Fed-
eral de Sao Carlos mixed dried, ground
banana peels with contaminated water,
then measured the levels of heavy met-
als absorbed and extracted compared
to conventional methods.
According to website Healthyl00.
org, the banana peels were 200 to 300
percent more effective at absorbing
copper compared to peanut husks,
sawdust, bentonite clay and perlite, a
kind of volcanic glass, the researchers
reported. The peels also were more ef-
fective at extracting lead and could be
reused 11 times before degrading.
More research is required, but one
thing's for sure: If the peels prove to be
the real deal, there's plenty of material
to work with. Roughly 100 million tons
of bananas are grown annually around
the world, and the only folks currently
using them are clumsy-footed
comedians.

STORIES FOR
THE WAITING ROOM
A study out of the University of
Nebraska Lincoln reports that people
who experience strong physiologi-
cal reactions to pleasant or disgusting
images a wedding scene or a man
eating worms, for example are more
likely to identify themselves as politi-
cally conservative.
A group of 27 women and 23 men
whose political leanings were assessed
through questioning were shown a
series of images, both pleasant and
disgusting. Electrodes attached to their
skin measured subtle skin conductance
charges, an indication of emotional
response.
The researchers found that Conser-
vatives responded to the offensive pic-
tures with much more intense disgust
than liberal participants.


"This is one more piece of evidence
that we, quite literally, have gut feel-
ings about politics," said study author
and professor of political science Kevin
Smith. "The proper interpretation of
the findings is not that biology causes
politics or that politics causes biology.
But that certain political orientations
at some unspecified point become
housed in our biology, with meaningful
political consequences."
