Holiday season 'really' arrives here Saturday


One sure sign that the holiday season is fast approach-
ing is this week's welcomed cool down.
But another is Saturday's events in Frostproof, which
will include everything from real snow to the city's annual
Christmas parade.
Christmasfest 2011 will begin the festivities at 10 a.m. at
the Frostproof First United Methodist Church, featuring a
wide array of fun and frivolity for the whole family. Besides
the every popular pile of real snow (which might last a
little longer this year what with colder weather moving in)
there will be a bounce house, train rides, a petting zoo,
pony rides and fun holiday crafts for the children.
Always popular is the chili cook off where those who
dare to try can sample a wide variety of different chilis
and vote for their favorite. There will also be music and
entertainment.
There is no charge to attend, but those who do come to
enjoy the festive event are asked to bring a canned good
or nonperishable food item that will be donated to the

lellsions still sim-11er after USF board meeting



Alexan(li,; (1an ad(/vocate, in the eye of the storm


tsorF roof News Page A


By CHRISTINE ARMARIO
AP EoDUCAION WRITER

MIAMI (AP) A week after a conten-
tious Board of Governors meeting that
laid out the pr,-liniji.ir; steps for the
University of South Florida Polytechnic
to become the state's 12th public uni-
versity, tensions among legislators and
USF leaders are still simmering.
State Sen. J.D. Alexander, R-Lake
Wales, a leading proponent for the
branch campus' split from USE sent
a letter last week accusing university
President Judy Genshaft and others of
making "purposefully misleading" state-
ments aimed at discrediting Polytech-
nic's management and prevent it from
becoming independent.
Meanwhile, Sen. Paula Dockery, R-
Lakeland, and Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New
Port Richey, are asking for detailed
records about the campus' expendi-
tures. In a letter to Polytechnic Regional
Chancellor Marshall Goodman, Dock-
ery and Fasano request a full audit of all
contracts, salaries, and other expendi-
tures, among other records. They also
point to news reports of questionable
expenditures, including $500,000 for a
video documentary and $10,000 for a
life-sized statue of a Star Wars' figure.
The letters and records request come
a week after the Board of Governors,
which oversees Florida's public univer-
sities, laid out a series of benchmarks
the Polytechnic college must make in
order to become independent from USE


In his letter to the Board of Governors,
Alexander says USF leadership made state-
ments Lii,-,- tli r; Goodman was solely
;"i-p i-.11 for-, ii .il ing the development
and design of the campus' cornerstone
science and- rr ,I i, i 1,lig.
Alexander said in an interview last
week there was "significant criticism"
about the building's procurement at
the meeting last Wednesday, and that
no one corrected the record to state
Genshaft and other USF leaders were
involved.
A USF spokesman rejected Alexan-
der's claims, saying they never criticized
Goodman's planning of the Polytechnic
campus. In a statement, Genshaft said
renowned architect Santiago Calatrava
had been selected through a transpar-
ent, competitive process, and that the
project was highlighted and promoted
by the university.
Asked why he was raising a concern
now, after a path toward independence
was approved by the board, Alexander
said it was because inappropriate criti-
cisms about campus management had
continued, including through the letter
sent by Dockery and Fasano.
Dockery, meanwhile, said Alexander's
letter was an attempt to divert attention
from her request for a detailed account-
ing of the Polytechnic's expenses.
"It's just a very determined state
senator who wants independence for
a university that's not built, doesn't
have faculty, and doesn't have stu-
dents yet and is not happy the Board

of Governors didn't just say yes,"
Dockery said last week.
Alexander said he was "more than
happy to request a full operational audit
of all of USF to answer their questions
and any others that may come up."
In his letter, Alexander requests all re-
cords related to the building's procure-
ment, including all records of gifts.
As Senate Budget Committee chairman,


Alexander is in a position to exert strong
financial pressure on the State University
System. The Lake Wales Republican in-
cluded $46 million in construction money
for the polytechnic campus in the current
year's budget.
While Gov. Rick Scott vetoed nearly all
higher education construction projects
from the budget, he let the polytechnic
project stand.

VIE POINT


Cyber Monday costs Florida taxpayers money


On '.',nil:];, a record number of Americans
flipped on their computers, cruised the Web and did
some Christmas shopping the new-fangled way.
They enjoyed one big break: They entered a virtual
"tax-free zone."
Cyber Monday is now the largest online shopping
day of the year, and it reminds us once again that
Florida lawmakers need to drop bogus arguments
about "new taxes" and get serious about finding a
workable method to collect taxes on all retail pur-
chases made by Floridians, whether those purchases
are made at the boutique down the street or from
the cyber-warehouse 3,000 miles across the country.
Consumers may be perfectly satisfied to do their
shopping in a tax free zone, but it is intrinsically
unfair for the bricks-and-mortar businesses that are
the backbone of our communities, the businesses
that employ our neighbors, pay local property taxes
and contribute to local charities. It is also a ludi-
crous situation for a state whose budget depends
so heavily on sales taxes to let so much potential
revenue go uncollected.
And yet the tax-free zone persists.
In reality, Florida law stipulates that appropriate
sales taxes be paid for all purchases. The problem is
the burden falls on consumers, who are supposed to
calculate the tax and forward the money to the state
Department of Revenues. (There's a form on the
website for anyone who feels compelled to follow


Our Viewpoint
the law.)
In reality, some people do. Very few.
A Department of Revenue told a Florida newspa-
per recently that 5,561 people voluntarily paid their
online sales taxes during the last fiscal year, and the
state took in $8.7 million.
That leaves a huge amount uncollected. A study
commissioned by the Florida Retail Federation
estimated the state's voluntary-pay system will leave
an estimated $450 million on the table in the next
fiscal year. By 2020, the total of uncollected sales
taxes could be more than $6 billion, according to
the study. And those are conservative estimates;
other groups and other studies put the numbers far
higher.
Needless to say, that kind of money would go a
long way toward shoring up a state budget facing a
shortfall of roughly $2 billion in the next fiscal year.
The same held true last year and the year before
that. Still, the Florida Legislature hasn't been able to
work up enough critical mass on the issue, despite
the urging of business stalwarts like the Florida
Chamber of Commerce, the Florida Retail Federa-
tion and Florida TaxWatch.
The latest roadblock seems to be the Republicans'
"no-new-tax" stance and a demand that any "new"


Internet taxes be offset with corresponding cuts in
other taxes, either in the sales tax itself or the corpo-
rate income tax. A spokesman for the Florida Retail
Federation said he had lined up overwhelming sup-
port from legislators; they were just waiting for the
green light from the Republican leadership.
So it goes in Tallahassee. Legislators who want to
do the right thing are elbowed into line by a leader-
ship driven more by ideology than common sense.
And, of course, the no new taxes pledge is meaning-
less in this instance. The tax already exists; it's just a
matter of collection.
There are real problems legal and procedural
- that have to be worked out to put the burden of
collection on sellers rather than buyers, but it can
be done. California has worked out a deal with the
mega-online retailer Amazon; other states are mak-
ing progress. To get it done, though, Florida's politi-
cal leaders need to drop their "new tax" posturing
and move ahead in a unified position. It's a simple
matter of fairness for bricks and mortar businesses
who must compete with online retailers, as well as
the citizens who lose services because of budget
shortfalls.
Just level the playing field for all. If consumers
have to pay an extra 6 percent at the local toy store
or clothing store, they should have to pay the same
when shopping at Amazon or Zappos. It's as simple
as that.


Good Guys, 21; Others,


Yeah, I am a Seminole, FSU Class of
1962.
I may actually go to my 50th class re-
union next spring. I missed the first 49.
I cheer for the Seminoles, especially
against Florida, remembering that UF
agreed to play FSU only after the Legis-
lature threatened to pass a law mandat-
ing that game. I am not making this up.
Lest you missed, it, Florida lost this
year; it would be an exaggeration to say
that FSU won.
Given that this year's contest had
all the excitement (in the words of the
late, great Lewis Grizzard) of two mules
fighting over a turnip, I had more time
to focus on the fine points of the game.

For instance, there are two head
coaches, one on each side of the field.
Each is paid not only more than the
president of the university that employs
him, but also more than the governor
of his state, and if he is in at least the
third year of his contract, more than the
president of the United States.
Or even Starbucks.
Okay, if the guy is that smart, go for it.
Talent has its price.
But is he really that smart?

For a salary in seven figures, he has
developed maybe 20 football plays.
Run, pass, punt, field goal, kick off, on-
sides kick, lose an on-sides kick, fumble,
throw an interception, and a few others.
This is not rocket science.
But can he remember them?
No.
He holds a state-of-the-art clipboard,
which any second lieutenant would be
proud to own, on which are written his
20 plays. I know there are no more than


20 plays, because he never turns to the
second page of his notepad.
You don't believe there are only 20
lines on a legal pad? Okay, count them. I
am waiting.
(Whew! Faked you out!)

And in case the other team has a
space satellite to read his lips, there are
two assistant coaches holding towels to
hide the clipboard and the head coach,
who apparently moves his lips when he
reads.
The assistant coaches look as worried
as if they had been caught in the shower
with 17-year-old cheerleaders. Prefer-
ably females.
Is that what college football has come
to, intercepting lip synch plays, unless
they are hidden behind sauna towels?
The president of the United States
has multi-gazillion-dollar security when
he orders a Big Mac and fries, but a guy
making 10 times as much money has a
couple of bath towels to keep it a secret
that he is telling his team that third
down and long means pass the ball.

(S. L. Frisbie is retired. He played in
every game in high school clarinet in
the marching band. During his tenure,
the Yellow Jackets never lost a half-time
show.)


Letters to the editor


Think twice before

entering big box store


I want to follow-up on your editorial
on Buying Local, and encourage folks
to think Buy Small instead of Buy Local.
The reason for this is that Buy Local,
to some shoppers, can include the big
box stores, whereas Buy Small more
properly targets our local small busi-
nesses. Places like Walmart suck great
wealth from the community while they
return a miniscule portion of it; and all
their profits go straight into corporate
headquarter pockets out-of-state (some
of it could even be going to off-shore
tax-dodging locations).
Sadly, the minimal benefits and pov-


erty wages most big box stores pay their
employees force the entire community
into a race to the bottom for wages/
benefits. According to Makingchange-
atwalmart.org, a Walmart associate
working full-time, earning the average
Walmart hourly wage, earns less than
the federal poverty level for a family of
four, while many Walton family mem-
bers are billionaires many times over;
some part-time workers are eligible for
food stamps. Because of this, taxpay-
ers subsidize the health care costs of

Board OKs new



plan for state



university system


By KIM WILMATH
ST. PETERSBURG TIMES
TAMPA In the next 13 years,
the state university system should
increase the number of degrees it
awards by almost 70 percent, have at
least five of its 11 universities ranked
in the top 50 nationally, and grow its
adult-student enrollment and online
courses.
Those are just some of the goals
outlined in the new strategic plan for
the Florida Board of Governors. With
a heavy focus on fields in science,
technology, engineering and math -
STEM, as the buzzword goes the
plan aims to better position the uni-
versity system as an economic driver.'
It's an idea that has been in the
spotlight lately thanks to Gov. Rick
Scott's new STEM-heavy jobs agenda.
Indeed, the plan was included in
a letter to Scott by state university
system Chancellor Frank Brogan,
responding to a lengthy information
request Scott sent to the universities
last month. It is the product of more
than a year's worth of work.
"What his conversation does," Bro-
gan said of Scott last week, "is make
sure we don't lose that focus."
Frank Martin, chairman of the
board committee that put the plan
together, called the final product
"nothing short of extraordinary."
Some highlights:
Degrees should be targeted to
serve both student and workforce
demands, academic research should
breed moneymaking commercializa-
tion, and there should be more col-
laboration between universities and
businesses.
Bachelor's degrees in STEM fields
should increase from about 18 per-
cent of the total degrees granted to
25 percent by 2025. Graduate degrees
in those areas should move from 21
percent of the total to 35 percent.
Universities should broaden the
way they educate students, through
online courses, digital technologies
and interdisciplinary collaboration.
Graduates should be prepared
to compete and excel in a "global
society."


All that while continuing to deal
with a major bummer: a 20 per-
cent drop in state funding over two
decades that's not likely to get any
better any time soon.
Because of that, the plan says, state
leaders must find new ways to sup-
port higher education. In the past few
years, that burden has increasingly
fallen to students, through tuition
increases.
In the future, the plan says, there
needs to be a more predictable
enrollment-growth funding formula
and increased financial aid.
After all, demand for higher educa-
tion access is only going to grow, the
plan says.
Though Scott's aggressive ideas for
education reform have rubbed some
the wrong way, particularly after he
said the state doesn't need a whole
lot more anthropologists, Brogan and
the board have praised the governor
for his interest.
"Some may worry about some of
the comments he makes, some of
the strong positions about different
degree programs we offer," said board
chairwoman Ava Parker at the Board
of Governors meeting this month
when the board approved the stra-
tegic plan. "Don't cringe. Say, 'That's
great, Gov. Scott, that you're having
that conversation.'
"The more the governor voices
those opinions, the more important.
our jobs become."
Somewhat ironically, the board
finally approved the road map at one
of its most-watched meetings ever,
in Boca Raton a couple of weeks ago.
But it was a move that got little atten-
tion thanks to the gorilla in the room:
the University of South Florida Poly-
technic's bid to become independent,
which the board delayed.
"This is a major milestone that has
been somewhat eclipsed by a few
other major issues," Board of Gov-
ernors spokeswoman Kelly Layman
said of the new plan. "But the fact
remains: Floridians need to know
that the Board of Governors landed
a compelling product, and on sched-
ule. ... We have raised the bar on
ourselves."


Science education expert


to direct STEM education


The University of South Florida Poly-
technic has named nationally recog-
nized science education expert Dr. Rod-
eric Brame to direct its STEM education
initiatives, an effort that parallels the
national push to inspire more students
to choose professions that are based in
science, technology, engineering and
math (STEM).
Poly's emphasis on STEM education
also mirrors state-wide efforts, includ-
ing Florida Gov. Rick Scott's stance to
shift state university funding away from
some liberal arts majors to favor STEM
disciplines, and State University System
Chancellor Frank Brogan's recent talk at
the 2011 Florida STEM Summit, where
he touted STEM education as a way to
help spur the state's economic growth.
Brame, who joined USF Polytechnic
in 2010, was named program director
to spearhead current and new pro-
gramming in STEM education. He is
building collaborative programs with
schools and school districts throughout
the state to support efforts to improve
STEM education and build STEM acad-
emies, a concept that goes to the heart
of Brame's work.
"The best way to open the flood gates
for building STEM careers is to build a
K-12 pipeline," Brame said.
He has spent much of his career teach-
ing teachers how to teach science more
effectively, including both undergradu-
ate and graduate level curriculum and
project development at Wright State
University, and graduate level integrated
STEM courses at Polytechnic. In addition,
he has taught science courses in high
schools and universities across his career.


"Locally, state-
wide and nationally,
the need to build
a stronger base of __.
STEM careers is criti- "
cal," said Marshall
Goodman, chancellor -
of Polytechnic. "Rod
brings us the talent '
and enthusiasm for
getting both students Dr. Rod Brame
and teachers excited
about science at all grade levels.
The cornerstone to Brame's passion
is pedagogical content knowledge -
not only understanding a subject but
also knowing how to teach it. To that
end, Brame has already put into place
several programs at Polytechnic that
bridge STEM concepts to teachers at all
grade levels.

Polk State College seals the deal


with Lake Wales Art Center


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY @LAKEWALESNEWS.COM
It's been about seven months since
the Florida Legislature approved a
$3 million appropriation for an arts
curriculum at Polk State College in Lake
Wales, and at last, the carefully designed
plan to provide classroom space at the
Lake Wales Art Center is a sure thing.
The Board of Trustees of Polk State Col-
lege on Monday approved a deal to allow
Polk State to take over ownership of the
Arts Center while enabling Arts Center
events and exhibitions to continue, ac-
cording to David Steele, PSC's Associate
Vice President for Communications and
Public Affairs.
The transaction will take some of the
financial pressure off the Lake Wales
Arts Council and will provide space for
an arts program for PSC Lake Wales. The
J.D. Alexander Center, which houses
the Lake Wales program, does not have
adequate space for an arts program.
In October, the Lake Wales Arts
Center's board of directors voted, by
unanimous vote, to transfer title of the
building to Polk State, and on Monday,
the PSC Board of Directors voted, also
unanimously, to accept the title.
The building will now be called the Polk
State College Lake Wales Arts Center.
The transition will actually occur
over a number of months, according to
Barbara Connor, president of the Lake
Wales Arts Council, with the school
taking title Jan. 1, and planning renova-
tions from January until June. The Arts
Council will continue its normal pro-
gramming in the building until May 31,
and will continue occupying an office
at the center thereafter.
In exchange for the building, Polk
State has assured the LWAC that the
building will be renovated and main-
tained by the College, and that the arts
and cultural programming at the facil-
ity will continue, Steele said.
The LWAC will continue to organize
the Lake Wales Arts Show, the Student
Art Show, the Marilyn Newell Youth
Music Festival, and Chorale, as well as
other.performances, exhibits or events
at the Polk State Lake Wales Arts Center.
According Connor, this development
will open a new chapter in Lake Wales'
arts life. The council is planning to take
more events into the community and
the goal is to include all residents. For
example, the Summer Art Camp this
year will be held at the Boys and Girls
Club rather than the Arts Center. And
if the council wants to put on a dance
recital, they may use a venue such as


the stage at Vanguard
School, the stage at the
Arts Center being too
small, Connor noted. ,
The main thing is in- -
volving the community, ', -
Connor said. On Jan. 15 .
at 4 p.m., the arts council
will sponsor a commu-
nity focus group at the
Arts Center "to find out
what Lakes Wales resi-
dents want from us. We t...
really encourage people
to come, and hope they
will. The focus group is .7 "'
open to all."
She noted that run-
ning an arts center and The Lake Wales A
running an arts council students of Polk:
are two very different Board approved
things, and that running dassroomand ga
the center had become activitiesand exi
very expensive and time-
consuming. "PSC has the means and
the staff to run a vibrant Arts Center,"
she said. "Polk State has already shown
that they have a strong commitment
to Lake Wales and to historic preserva-
tion," she said.
"This is a very exciting announce-
ment for Polk State and for the Lake
Wales community. It's a classic 'win-
win' situation," said Polk State Presi-
dent Dr. Eileen Holden.
According to Holden, the only nega-
tive feedback she has heard is from
those who have the "utterly incorrect"
impression that the College will some-
how scale back arts programming at
the location or undermine the charac-
ter of the historic facility.
"Both perceptions are not only wrong
but absolutely contrary to our institu-
tion's pledge to our local partners and to
the record we have clearly established
in the community as faithful stewards of
the historic structure we already occupy
as well as to the record Polk State has
established as a hub and patron of the
arts," Holden added.
The Polk State College Lake Wales
Arts Center is now owned and operated
by the Polk State College District Board
of Trustees and will utilize an advisory
board, consisting of six members ap-
pointed by the Polk State Trustees and
five members appointed by the LWAC.
"This transition is a move forward,
not a step back," said Holden.
Sustainability funding for Polk State's
newly acquired facility has been provid-
ed by the State of Florida, which added
operating funds to the College budget in

the underpaid employees. Additionally,
big box stores and malls generate only
slightly more taxes per acre than single
family homes, and far less than high
rises.
We can all help the little Lake Wales
community start expanding and build-
ing better paying jobs by thinking twice
before we go into a big box store. Just
do everything you can to find what


you need at a small local business
before you ever let big box enter your
mind, especially those of us who are
not forced by circumstances to always
search for the very lowest price. The
payoff for our comrriunity's health
and well-being and growth could be
startling. Let's redirect $ and promote
employment in our own home town.

Man charged with assault on deputies


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY) @ LAKEWALESNEWS.COMN
The northbound outside lane of Hwy.
27 near Avon Park remained closed off
Frid:i. afternoon as Polk County Sher-
iff's Office deputies and crime scene
technicians investigated an incident
where an apparently erratic man throw-
ing objects at p.i -in i, cars refused to be
subdued by officers at the site.
Suspect Heriberto Mejia of Winter
Haven attacked deputies along U.S.
Highway 27 South in Lake Wales, just
south of the Kangaroo Express conve-
nience store located at 14581 U.S. 27
South, according to PCSO spokesperson
Donna Wood.
Around 9:30 a.m. Friday, deputies,
29-year-old Paul Stroud and 40-year-old
Stephen Theriac were alerted to a male
subject behaving erratically and throw-
ing objects onto the roadway. Witnesses
described seeing the subject, later
identified as 52-year-old Mejia throwing
large boards and other debris onto the
road and toward traffic. One object, a
large blue pole, struck a passing vehicle
causing damage to the body of the
vehicle, Wood said.
Deputies Stroud and Theriac attempt-
ed to make contact with Mejia along-
side the northbound lanes of Highway
27, just feet from busy traffic. The two
shouted commands for Mejia to get

and he :l-gII.ll. hurled an industrial-
size chain with heavy locks attached
at the deputies, reports note. Deputy
Theriac attempted to stun Mejia with a
taser, to no effect.
Mejia's behavior became increasingly
aggressive and he armed himself with a
claw hammer, Wood said. Mejia raised
the weapon in a threatening manner
and threw it at the deputies. Fearing
for their safety and that of passing
motorists, Deputy Paul Stroud fired
several rounds at Mejia, who remained
uninjured.
Mejia was ultimately subdued and
taken into custody. Mejia is currently
charged with one count of Criminal
Mischief, two counts of Aggravated As-
sault on Law Enforcement Officer, two
counts of Resisting with Violence, and
one count of Throwing a Deadly Missile,
Wood said.

For Mom


Frostproof star shines for USC,


dedicates game played on late Mother's birthday


By GARY KLEIN
Los ANGLdis TIMES
LOS ANGELES Watch Nickell
Robey after he makes a big play. USC's
sophomore cornerback subtly shifts his
left hand over his right wrist to where
".' !ia," is scrawled on white athletic
tape.
Then he touches the word twice. Tap,
tap.
Robey is letting his mother know he is
doing OK. That he's thinking about her.
Tap, tap.
Maxine Robey died of heart failure in
February 2010, not long after her son
signed a letter of intent to play football
at USC. She was 44.
Since then, her son has established
himself as a playmaker and leader for
the Trojans, who host Washington on
Saturday at the Coliseum.
Game days are always special to
Robey, but this one 10 days ago fells on
his mother's birthday, Nov. 12, 1965.
His younger sister Maranda and other
relatives traveled from Florida to attend
the game.
Robey is convinced his mother also
was watching.
"I know at times she's there right
there," Nickell says, tapping his wrist.
"I know she's watching and she's just as
excited as me."
Tap, tap.
Two Saturdays go, the Trojans
shocked No. 4 ranked Oregon. USC qui-
eted Autzen Stadium and made a bold
statement to the nation. Robey summed
it up in two words: "'SC's back."
Head Coach Lane Kiffin's message
to the defense before it took the field,
according to Robey, was: "We need you
right here, right now. Let's go."
And Robey's message in the huddle
was: "This is what we live for. This is
why we came to USC."
Last weekend, USC crushed crosstown
rival UCLA, 50-0
"We just had to come out and show
them who the king of L.A. is," Robey
observed.
Nickell Robey says he feels it on his
shoulder, especially when he is ponder-
ing a decision.
Go to class or stay in bed? Tap, tap.
"I can never hide," Robey says, laugh-
ing, "because if I'm thinking of doing
something wrong, she'll be watching to
put me in a good spot."
Robey, 19, had not planned to attend
college so far from his family's home
in Frostproof, a town of about 3,000 in
central Florida.
He played varsity football for Frostproof


Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck is shoved
out of bounds by Southern California corner-
back Nickell Robey, left, during a game earlier
this year. Robey is fourth on the team in
tackles this fall.

Robey is tied for the team lead in interceptions this year.


High as an eighth-grader and then be-
came a four-year starter, just like his older
cousin Carlton Thomas.
Size was never an issue for the 5-foot-
8 Robey, whose father, Earl, first put
him on the football field at age 6.
Robey's high school coach, Brad
Metheny, can still see the time an op-
ponent tested the smallish cornerback
by sending a 6-6 tight end his way.
'After the fifth throw to him, and the
third interception, they quit doing that,"
Metheny says. "Eventually, people real-
ized, 'We're not going to throw it over
there near Nickell.'
Robey originally committed to
Georgia, where Thomas had gone to
play running back. But when Georgia's
defensive backs coach was fired, Robey
began looking elsewhere.
He attended a camp at Tennessee,
drawing a scholarship offer on the spot
after wowing Lane Kiffin and his staff
with his athletic ability and desire.
"You could see it even then," Kiffin
says. "He had heart."
Home visits by Tennessee coaches,
especially ones that included Kiffin's
father, Monte, made Tennessee Robey's
choice.
"My mom loved Monte Kiffin," Robey
says. "She was like, 'He's more than a
coach. He's bigger than a coach. He
stands for something.' "
Robey committed-to the Volunteers
in December 2009 and then watched in
shock as the Kiffins and most of Ten-
nessee's staff headed west to USC in
mid-January.
"The first thing I said was, 'They're
not going to come to Florida to come
get me,' "he recalls.
But recruiting'coordinator Ed Org-
eron was soon on the phone, asking
demanding, really- in his gravelly
voice, "You want to be a Trojan?"
Robey visited USC later that month.
He knew he would play for the Tro-
jans the minute he saw palm trees and
beaches that reminded him of home.
Robey and Maxine celebrated after he
signed a national letter of intent with
the Trojans on Feb. 3, 2010.
Two weeks later, she was gone and his
world changed forever.
Despite a heart condition and high
blood pressure,-Maxine Robey worked


two jobs, volunteered at church and
made it to all of her son's athletic
events.

morning, put on one of his favorite
shirts and got ready for school. But
before he left, an uncle who had stayed
the night at the family home told him
to check on his mother.
Robey found her on the floor of her
bedroom. He instructed his uncle to
call 911 and immediately began admin-
istering CPR.
"She was trying to talk, but she
couldn't," Robey says. "I just tried to tell
her, 'Everything is going to be OK.' "
Paramedics arrived and continued
attempts to stabilize his mother's
condition. Robey was instructed to go
to school, but he eventually made his
way to the hospital with his high school
coach.
"I walk into the (hospital) room, see
my family and the look on their faces
and I knew right then and there she
didn't make it," he says.
Robey asked for and received time
alone with his mother's body. He
spoke gently, tearfully, reaffirming the
promise he had made to earn a college
degree.
"I told her what I was going to do
with my life," he says, "that I was
sincere about it and that I'm going to
come through."
Robey wasn't sure how he would
adjust to new surroundings, West Coast
culture and new teammates.
"The only thing I knew was I was com-
ing here to do something great," he says.
Teammates noticed. "He was here for
one thing," says former Trojans corner-
back Shareece Wright. "To graduate and
then go to the NFL."
Robey did not need to be motivated.
Tailback D.J. Morgan, a fellow fresh-
man, discovered that the first day they
spent together as roommates.
Morgan walked into their dorm room
and saw a notebook on the desk. Writ-
ten on the pages were the names of
every USC defensive back, along with
their strengths and weaknesses.
"He was just going after guys' spots,
marking people out," Morgan says. "I

saw that and I was just like, 'Man. This
guy is going to be good.'"
Robey quickly earned a starting spot
at cornerback and also returned kicks.
To stay grounded, and remind
himself of where he came from, he
continued a practice he began in high
school, writing "Mom," his sister's
name "Maranada" and "Lakeview Park,"
the neighborhood where he grew up,
on the tape over his right wrist on game
days. He also scrawled references to his
favorite biblical passages.
After some hard lessons in the first
three games, Robey broke through
against Washington State. He inter-
cepted two passes, returning one for a
touchdown.
Tap, tap. "I just knew she was smil-
ing," he says of his mom.
Robey finished his first season with
four interceptions and was determined
to establish himself as a lockdown de-
fender this year.
He took a big step in that direction
three weeks ago when he shut down
Notre Dame star Michael Floyd and
intercepted a pass to secure a victory.

The next week, he picked off a pass

from Heisman Trophy front-runner An-
drew Luck and returned it for a touch-
down. Tap, tap.
Last week he shut down Colorado
receiver Paul Richardson.
Although his game against Washing-
ton Nov. 12 wasn't anything spectacu-
lar, individually, the Trojans rolled to
a 40-17 win. Robey had three tackles
and a pass breakup. He is fourth on the
team so far this year in tackles, and tied
for the lead in interceptions.
Kiffin allowed his sophomore to lead
the Trojans onto the field that night.
"It was great leading the guys out of
the tunnel, man," Robey said. "I got my
team behind me, and I knew we were
ready to play. "I felt like I had an'S' on
my chest," He told ESPN afterwards.
"My emotions were great, My family
was at the game, I was happy for that,
and it was just an amazing win for us."

A settlement resolves claims against General
Motors of Canada, Ltd. ("GMCL") in related
lawsuits currently pending in California, Florida,
New Mexico and Wisconsin. This notice is for
Florida class members (defined below). The
lawsuits are about an alleged conspiracy among
several automakers, to keep Canadian new
car exports out of the U.S. The settlement will
provide $20.15 million to pay claims of class
members in all four states. If you qualify, you
may submit a claim form to get a payment, or
you can exclude yourself from the settlement, or
object to it.
Who Is a Member of the Florida Class?
You are a Florida class member and could get a
payment from the settlement if you purchased or
leased a new passenger car, light truck or SUV

dealer located in Florida during January 1, 2001
through April 30, 2003:
Acura Honda Mini
Audi Hummer Nissan
BMW Infiniti Oldsmobile
Buick Jaguar Plymouth
Cadillac Jeep Pontiac
Land Rover Saa
Chevrolet Lexus Saab
Chrysler Lincoln Saturn
Dodge Mazda Toyota
Ford Mercedes VW
GMC Mercury Volvo
What Are the Lawsuits About?
The lawsuits claim that several automakers
conspired with each other to prevent cheaper,
but virtually identical, new cars from being
exported from Canada to the U.S. The lawsuits
allege that this violated state antitrust and
consumer protection laws and caused new
vehicle prices in C .aliifrrna, Florida, New
Mexico and Wisconsin to be higher than they
should have been. GMCL asserts that it has
acted lawfully and independently and that
there is no legal or factual basis for these
lawsuits. This is just a summary-for more

cause they didn't challenge him much.
Washington's No. 1 receiver, whom
Robey guarded for most of the night,
had two catches for 10 yards.
"I'm dedicating the game to my mom
to wish her a happy birthday," Robey
says. "I know she'll be watching."
Robey is estranged from his father,
but having his sister and relatives in
town helped deal with the difficult an-

Genshaft faces new twist in USF Poly split


By KIM WILMATH
ST. PE-TERSBURG TIMES
TAMPA Judy Genshaft says she
isn't rattled.
Yes, a powerful state senator has
lashed out at the Uni-
versity of South Florida
president, calling for an .*
investigation into her
leadership. And now here
comes a fellow university -
president with a diss, say- :
ing he's "willing to help"
one of her campuses GENSHAFT
break away if asked.
As the USF Polytechnic-split saga
continues to unfold, Genshaft stayed
on message this week: "It's about get-
ting things done."
She stands behind the USF model -
unique, Genshaft says because the
campuses are autonomous in gover-
nance and finances. And USF will work
to meet the conditions set by state
leaders to make the Lakeland campus a
new university.
Allowing its transition to indepen-
dence under a different university
- like, say, the University of Florida -
would not be "economical or neces-
sary," Genshaft said.
Her comments came a day after UF
president Bernie Machen joined in
the brouhaha, following suggestions
by Sen. JD Alexander that USF Poly
might fare better under the Gainesville
school.
It's an idea Alexander has been floating

Poly's quest to niier t, ..,.rilnjiion:.. for Irdeper,-
dence, including increased enrollment and separate
accreditation: Board members are Dick Beard,
a Tampa real estate developer; Morteza "Mori"
Hosseini, the Daytona Beach construction company
CEO; and Norman Tripp, founder of a Fort Lauderdale
law firm who will give quarterly reports to the board
starting in March.
since moments after the Florida Board
of Governors voted to impose, conditions
on the Lakeland campus' split, delaying
it by several years. It also interested a few
board members, Machen said.
"Several members," Machen said in a
statement, "asked if UF would consider
assisting in the transition-to indepen-
dence, and I said that, if asked, we
would be willing to help."
The UF president supports an inde-
pendent Polytechnic; he wrote, "in part
because I do not endorse the branch-
campus model of research universities."
Genshaft said the presidents hadn't
discussed the possibility. And until
she sees a plan, she can't comment on
hypothetical.
But she did point out that UF has
a broad-reaching Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences extension
program, which "could be viewed as a
branch campus."
Still, "We haven't seen a plan."


Machen isn't the only one
criticizing Genshaft's system.
At the board meeting last :' ,1
month, several members ques- IJ ,
tioned whether branch cam-
puses were really a good idea.
Genshaft, who has led USF ,
for more than a decade, says
the system serves students
effectively and efficiently. And
because they have more auton-
omy than traditional branch
campuses, she says they are With ev
better equipped to develop USF Pol3
curricula they want. USF pre
"It is working," she said. to get ti
Ironically, it's that freedom
that may make them easier to
break off.
The campuses each are separate line
items in the state budget. Alexander
said last week that moving USF Poly to
UF would require a simple legislation
wording change.
Though Genshaft acknowledged that
"there isn't any insurance" against her
campuses trying to break off, she says
she didn't see the USF Poly push
coming.
She was also surprised by a letter
sent to the board last week by Alexan-
der, accusing Genshaft of making mis-
leading statements in what he called
an effort to thwart a split and discredit
USF Poly's leader.
While the board criticized USF Poly's
lavish new campus construction plans,
Genshaft never volunteered that she

signed off on the contracts the
linchpin of Alexander's letter. But the
board members never asked, Genshaft
said.
As for Marshall Goodman, the USF
Poly chancellor who was called "in-
competent" by a board member and
who has come under fire by two state
senators for "questionable spending,"
Genshaft said his "evaluation" simply
depends on meeting the conditions
laid out by the board.
Last question: Does Genshaft feel
threatened by Alexander?
Pause.
"Michael Long," Genshaft said, re-
ferring to the student Board of Gover-
nors member who called the senator
out for behind-the-scenes intimida-
tion, "is a very unique and strong
young man."

"The American Cancer Society
combines an unyielding passion with
nearly a century of experience to save
lives and end suffering from cancer.
As a global grassroots force of more
than three million volunteers, we fight
for every birthday threatened by every
cancer in every community" Cur-
tis added. "We save lives by helping
people stay well by preventing cancer
or detecting it early; by helping people
get well by being there for them during


and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding
cures through investment in ground-
breaking discovery; and by fighting
back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws
to defeat cancer and by rallying com-
munities worldwide to join the fight. As
the nation's largest non-governmental
investor in cancer research, contribut-
ing about $3.4 billion, we turn what we
know about cancer into what we do.
As a result, more than 11 mil-
lion people in America who have had
cancer and countless more who have
avoided it will be celebrating birthdays

FIREFIGHTERS: Train at home

volunteers the opportunity to get up to
30 hours of online training in a year, 10
more hours than is presently required
by the city's operating agreement with
the department.
Currently, two-hour training sessions
are held once a month, according to
department officials, meaning that only
24 hours a year is available, and that
each member must attend at least 10 of
the 12 meetings.
"In reality, that doesn't happen,"
said department official Keith Jenkins.
"They are volunteers. But they're not
just sitting at home. They're working,
or illness. What it will be used for is to
supplement what we do monthly."


Nine members of the department
are currently employed as fire rescue
workers in other jurisdictions, so they
meet the current training requirement.
However, the remaining 18 current
members do not, department officials
indicated at last week's council meet-
ing.
The 30 hours of training will cost the
city $49 per firefighter, and there is an
initial $850 set up fee with the online
company that provides the video ses-
sions.
Some council members expressed
concerns that the video sessions might
actually encourage less attendance
at the monthly meetings, which can
sometimes provide more hands on
training.


Fire Chief Bill Lord noted that the
website being used for the training
closely monitors when department
members log in and log out. Topics
are selected in advance by the depart-
ment's officers.
And, he said, they will make sure the
work is being put in.
"They have one year to make it
right," he said about meeting the mini-
mum training requirement, "or they're
out. Every six months, all members are
reviewed, including myself. They are
aware they must maintain the stan-
dards required of them. If they have not
brought themselves up to the stan-
dards, they are no longer members of
the department."
Jenkins indicated that more than 100


Florida departments already use Target
Safety, the company that provides the
service. Locally, departments in Bartow,
Auburndale, Haines City and Lakeland
participate.
"We're proposing a solution because
more than half of the volunteers aren't
meeting their training requirements,
and they are not coming to the meet-
ings," Councilwoman Diana Biehl
said. "We want them trained, we want
them involved, or we need to look for
another way to provide fire services.
It's a professional responsibility to get
training. It's got to get done. "
Lord said each member of the de-
partment will have to sign an operating
agreement that spells out the training
requirement.

Middle schools honors

'cooperative' students


Frostproof Middle School's new pro-
gram honoring different character traits
is now in its second month.
For November, school leaders picked
"cooperation" as its special trait, defined
by a willingness and ability to work with
others to accomplish a common goal.
Students from each grade level in
the middle school are selected to be
recognized. For sixth graders, Rebecca
Briggs was picked.
"Rebecca always turns in fundraisers'
on time," teacher Clay Brantley noted.
"She never has to be told twice in class
what her assignment is, and she helps
clean up without being told to."
Jasmine Navarro was selected among
the seventh graders.


"Jasmine has taken on the task of help-
ing a new student from Cuba that speaks
no English," noted one of her teachers,
Holly McGraw. "She has allowed this -
student to become her shadow in almost
all of her classes. Jasmine does this with
a smile on her face. She takes the time to
translate and help her understand what
-is expected of her."
Angelica Ramirez was honored among
eighth graders.
"I would like to nominate Angelica
Ramirez because I have watched her on
numerous occasions step in and help out
other students who are having trouble
in class or not quite sure how to do the
assignment," said teacher Angela Cain.
"She is always willing to help others."

Pinewood Estate features cinematic theme for Christmas tours


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY@ LAKEWALESNEWS.COM
The glitz and glitter of Hollywood
came to Pinewood Estate on Nov. 25 as
the holiday home tours debut. Christ-
mas events are planned throughout the
gardens, with Pinewood a focal point
featuring tours and on Dec. 16 and
17, h,,li.i ,, concerts by singer Asunta
Fleming. The gardens will be open
seven days a week during the ',I'li
season, including Christmas Day and
New Years Day, according to David
Price, president of Bok Tower Gardens.
I'iv.t...n. I's rooms will be themed
to a number of all-time favorite films,
including \',l (h In iiii,.r ""How
the Grinch Stole Christmas," [-,lu,'
Hawaii," "Love Actually," Breakfast at
I iltw,.'s," "Christmas in Connecticut,"
and "Out of Africa." Three Central
Florida Designers and a host of Bok
Tower volunteers put their creative
skills to work, and visitors to Pinewood
can vote on their favorite room. The
winning designers of this "People's
Choice Award" score the opportunity
to host a private event for 25 people
at Pinewood. And visitors may pur-
chase tickets for a drawing, with prizes
including a private dinner for eight at
Pinewood Estate.
"The holiday home tour is an annual
tradition for f1.Mii ,n- whd iii '- to get
new decorating ideas while capturing
the holiday spirit," Price. said.
The three featured design firms are
Seaside Sisters, who designed the "Blue
Hawaii" room; B. Taylor's Expressions,
decorator of the Breakfast at Tiffany's
Theme in the loggia; and Van-Go In-
teriors, creators of the elegant dining
room based on the film "Out of Africa."


This elegant shell-encrusted bust and mirror
is part of the landscape of the "Blue Hawaii"
room; part of the holiday tour at Pinewood
Estates. The design is by The Seaside Sisters,
and the room is based on the famous Elvis
Presley movie "Blue Hawaii."
The volunteer designers came up
with vibrant design themes for "Puttin'
on the Ritz," Christmas in Connecti-
cut," and a number of other vintage
blockbusters.
The soft glow of the pantry-kitchen
area invites visitors to a tea-time
theme.
The kids will no doubt love the
"Grinch" room, as they are greeted
at the door by a replica of the grinch
himself, riding in his sleigh. This year,
rather than stealing Christmas. he is
joining the festivities.
Pinewood Estate is elegant year-
round, the 20-room 1930's estate
replete with vintage furnishings and
the delightful nooks and crannies
that are built into homes of that era.
Speculation inevitably arises around


"Out of Africa" is the film featured in the dining room designed by Van-Go Interiors, as part of
the cinematic theme transforming Pinewood Estate during the holiday home tour. The estate is
on the grounds of Bok Tower Gardens, and tour tickets can be purchased at the gate. The tours
begin Nov. 25 and run until Jan 1.

ing the holiday season, the home takes
on a whole new level of glamour and
mystique, harking back to an era of
American innovation and pr, ':,pe iii, as
the nation began finding its way back
from the Great Depression.
Tickets for the holiday home tour
can be purchased at the gate to Bok
Tower Gardens, and tour admission is
additional, not included in the regular
price of admission to the gardens.
Admission to Bok Tower Gardens
is $12, and $3 for children. With the
tour included, as a "combo," admis-
sion is $18 for adults, $9 for children 5
through 12, with special member tour
tickets priced at $7 for adults and $6
for members' children. All children
younger than age 5 are admitted free.
Special events and concerts are priced
separately, and details can be found
on the Bok Tower website; www.
BokTower.org. Spokesperson Cassie
Jacoby noted that tickets to Asunta
Fleming's concerts sell out quickly, so
guests may want to buy early.
Tours at Pinewood start Nov. 25 and
continue through Jan. 1. Hours are
Monday Saturday from 10 a.m. -
5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 5 p.m. On
Christmas Eve, Pinewood will be open
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Christ-
mas Day, from 1 to 5 p.m..

Ridge Landing Fly-In benefits

Wounded Warrior Airlift


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY@LAKEWALESNEWS.COM
Eleven Cirrus private aircraft
descended onto the field at Ridge
Landing Airpark near Frostproof
recently for a "Salute to Veterans"
fly-in. They were members of COPA
(Cirrus Owners and Pilots Associa-
tion.) And according to the private
airport's manager, Chris Dies, the
day's proceeds were designated for a
worthy cause, the Wounded Warrior
Airlift.
This is the second year of the fly-
in, Dies said, and plans are to make
it an annual event. Ridge provided
the site for the fly-in and food for
the 50 or so people at the event, ask-
ing visitors to pay on a volunteer
basis. Both last year and in 2011,

Fly-in, held earlier this month at Ridge

Force colonel.

they collected several hundred dol-
lars for the designated recipient.
One visitor this year who caught
the eye of aviation buffs was Abner
Aust, who according to the American
Fighter Aces Association is one of
about 250 certified World War II aces
still living.
According to The Air Force Times,


"Aust was a 23-year-old captain
from Mississippi when he flew 14
combat missions in a P-51 Mustang
from the captured island of Iwo Jima
to the Japanese mainland in 1945.
According to numerous accounts, he
shot down at least five enemy fight-
ers and damaged three more in dog
fights over Japan. The five confirmed
"kills" certified him as a flying ace,
one of the last of World War II."
"Aust served in various posts
around the world after the war,
making colonel in 1963. He was sent
to Vietnam where he logged 300
combat support missions and com-
manded a tactical fighter wing in
1968-69. The Pentagon was among


his last postings before he retired in
1972 with the Legion of Merit, Dis-
tinguished Flying Cross, Bronze Star
and other decorations pinned to his
chest," the Times reported.
Aust now lives in Polk County.
The Wounded Warriors airlift,
designated recipient of the fly-in's
proceeds, is a part of the Wounded
Warriors project, providing sup-
port to service personnel returning
to the United States as casualties.
Part of the airlift's function is to fly
troops to their designated homebase
or hospital, or even home, as well
as making sure they have the basic
necessities of life while enroute.


These veterans from Highlands County led the flag ceremony at the Salute to Veterans Fly-in held
earlier this month at the Ridge Landing Airpark. Proceeds from the day's activities were donated
to the Wounded Warriors Airlift.

Ross: Country looking for leadership


2012 election
By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
The 2012 election won't be a landslide,
but it will be a turning point for America,
U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross-told the Polk County
Tiger Bay audience Monday.
"The 2012 election will be a turning
point election," he said at the Peace River
Country Club.
Ross said the election will hinge on cred-
ibility and may show the country wants
a change from what they've experienced
from the previous two elections.
"In the 2008 elections, we saw something
we've never seen," he said. "There was a
massive turnout of voters. They were hang-
ing on to what they saw as an opportunity.
I don't see that American people want to
stay on that path. They've got to have some
leadership."
While he emphatically said he is staying
aside from the Republican nomination
and doesn't support anyone seeking the
nomination, he said the constant changing
of who is leading in polls is a cry from the
voters for a leadership.
However, he is not saying there is a total
lack of leadership.
"It comes down to different philoso-
phies," he said of the difference between
Republicans and the Democratic president.
"This president has been an effective leader
in his philosophies. The Republicans are
craving for a similar leadership."
He said the GOP is looking for a leader of
philosophy of the party but he doesn't think
it has found one yet.
He said the races will be close, and he
doesn't think there will be any mandate
from it. He has sensed the frustration
from voters and the anger they have. He


will be a turning point, but no landslides,

Country Club where Ross spoke

RetireSafe, which represents 400,000 seniors honored U.S.
Rep. Dennis Ross Monday for his efforts to protect the health
benefits and security of Florida's seniors and disabled citi-
zens. From left are Lakeland City Commissioner Don Selvage,
Maureen Kelly, president and CEO of West Central Florida Area
Agency on Aging, Ross and Alice O'Reilly, president of VISTE.
Ross was recognized for being on a committee that will ensure
access to affordable medications through Medicare Part D, and
opposing proposals that threaten to limit access to health care
and increase premiums for seniors in the Medicare program.


understands the frustration from the Oc-
cupy Wall Street crowd, but because he feels
its agenda doesn't have a focus, he doesn't
think they'll be around much longer after
the election.,
"It came around because people are
angry. There is justification for what they're
doing," Ross said, adding that those on Wall
Street and in the banking industry made
millions of dollars on something that didn't
produce anything.
Similarly, the Tea Party will remain a
factor in the 2012 election depending on
the employment levels and the housing
situation.
"They will have an impact on the election
and it will continue with its conservative


agenda. How effective it will be I don't know. It
depends bn employment and housing."
In his first term as a U.S. representative,
Ross said the voters need the credibility
in office. It's not so much the message
but the messenger, he said. This election
will offer the voters a choice they have to
make in order to move ahead. The most
frustrating thing he experienced in his
first term in office is that nothing seems
to be getting done.
"This Congress gets blamed for every-
thing. We have to offer the voters a choice
in 2012, either go back to where we were
or make a change," he said. "We can't be
everything to everybody. I believe we have
dissension on both sides of the legislature


he said


and Congress seems to be reactive as
opposed to proactive, but we are still the
country where people want to come to."
He said congressmen need to make the
tough decisions; those decisions could cost
them re-election but action has to be taken.
That was among the primary reasons he
was against the Super Committee that was
charged with making a decision on raising
the debt ceiling, which failed last week. He
-said it was his job to make this decision, not
the Super Committee's job.
"I see it as a usurping of my job as an
elected member of Congress," he said. "We
in Congress should make the cuts."
Ross made his appearance Monday
shortly after accepting an honor from
RetireSafe, an organization that represents
400,000 senior citizens. The group recog-
nized him for ensuring access to afford-
able medications through Medicare Part
D, and opposing proposals that threaten
to limit access to health care and increase
premiums for seniors in the Medicare
program.
In the meeting, when asked how he
voted on the Paul Ryan budget proposal
that would have cut money from Medicare
and Social Security, he said he did because
something had to be done.
"To do nothing wasn't a choice. In 11
years we will see Medicare and Social
Security go bankrupt," he said. "Those are
sometimes called the third rail of politics
for the reason that no one wants to touch
it. We have to do something and with the
Ryan budget, it took a stab at it."
He said options looked at include things
such as raising the retirement age or else
"we're doomed for failure."
"If we don't (do something now) God
help us."


Luxury hotel furniture store in Lake Wales


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@LAKEWALESNEWS.COM
Until several months ago,
residents in and around Lake
Wales looking to buy or ac-
quire quality used furniture at
reasonable prices basically had
few options. They could scout
garage, yard and estate sales.
They could hit consignment
shops. Those technically savvy
could go online to such sites
as Craigslist.com. Sometimes
they might get lucky and find
furniture sitting on the curb.
Excluding upper-end con-
signment shops, the potential
issue quite often but not
always is the quality of the
furniture found elsewhere. Is
it something a person would
be comfortable having in the
home, especially when enter-
taining family and friends?
Granted, some furniture takes
on a "patina" or "character"
when well-worn; case goods
such as tables, cabinets, and ar-
moires are good examples. But
with perhaps the exception of
top-of-the line, genuine leather
couches without rips and tears,
upholstered furniture that is
well-worn and shows it is not at
all desirable.
Seeing a need not addressed,
Ali "Alex" Benjama, who owns
the Royale Inn on U.S. Highway
27 in Lake Wales, opened 5 Star
Hotel Furniture on State Road
60 headed toward Bartow.
Inside the nondescript one-

story cinder block building,
with little room to maneuver,
is furniture that has been
purchased from luxury hotels.
The price, according to Gen-
eral Manager Dana Mackey, on
average is one-third that were
the furniture brand new. There
are several reasons for that, he
said.
"The reason we can sell at a
reasonable price is because we
buy it in bulk," said Mackey.
"That gives us the freedom to
not charge a lot and still make
money." As a result, quite often,
he said, clients "get a lot more
furniture than they anticipated."


Mackey explained 5 Star
buys entire floors of furniture.
Its most recent acquisition
came from a highly-rated
national hotel chain near the
theme parks in Orlando that
has several buildings on its
campus. 5 Star purchased the
furniture and fixtures from
one of the buildings; 10 stories
worth, with an average of 20-25
rooms per floor. The rooms
were stripped bare, including
carpeting, drapes, light fixtures
and other accessories. From
there it was shipped to a ware-
house near the store on SR 60.
Sometimes, Mackey said, the

stored furniture towers up to
the ceiling.
Mackey attested to the high
quality of the furniture.
"They (the hotel chains) buy
solid furniture that can stand
up to the test of time," he said.
He added this is a plus for 5
Star clients. "The buyer gets to
enjoy the furniture for a good
number of years yet to come."
Francis Lewis agreed. A for-
mer Bartow resident who now
lives in Gainesville, he came
across 5 Star several months
ago and was so impressed
with what he found he made a
return trip. He was looking for
outdoor furniture for a back
porch he had just built.
"It's pretty good stuff. Not


beat to pieces," said Lewis. "It's
well worth the money."
Some of the furniture is
seeing a second life at another
hotel. Benjama, who has been
in the hospitality industry 25
years, has also furnished his
hotel with furniture he earlier
purchased from another quality
hotel. It is, he said, much better
than what previously was in
place when the Royale Inn used
to be a Red Carpet Inn.
"I put in the best for my
guests," Benjama said. He also
wants a better site for 5 Star
clients and said he is consid-
ering a more visible location.
Plus he is exploring the option
of opening another store, in
Winter Haven.











Committee files appeal on recall ruling


By BILL QUINLAN
CORRESPONDENT
The committee seeking to recall two
Haines City commissioners from office
filed an appeal Nov. 21 with the Dis-
trict Court of Appeals for the Second
District.
The appeal seeks to overturn Polk
County Circuit Court Judge Randall
McDonald's ruling that killed their peti-
tion drive to recall embattled Commis-
sioners Horace West and Joana Wilkin-
son for their role in granting outgoing
city manager Ann Toney-Deal a sever-
ance package worth over $334,000.
The committee had obtained the vali-
dated signatures of over 15 percent of the
city's registered voters on its petition.
By a 10-0 vote the committee unani-
mously reversed its earlier decision
not to appeal. Committee member Bill
Watts said the decision was prompted
by a public outcry from citizens.
"I received tons and tons of phone
calls begging us to continue on with
the appeal."
The fact that West and Wilkinson
recently requested that the city pay


their legal fees which total $50,355.54
was also a consideration, according
to Watts. He added the committee
believes McDonald erred in determin-
ing that the commissioners did not
commit misfeasance by voting last
April to grant Toney-Deal the severance
package. Because Toney-Deal is col-
lecting unemployment, a move the city
agreed in the severance package not
to oppose, the value of that package
continues to rise.
Then-Mayor West, Wilkinson and
then-lame-duck Commissioner Philip
Hinkle voted for the package. Current
Mayor Roy Tyler and Commissioner
Adam Burgess voted against it. Com-
missioner Don Mason, who defeated
Hinkle in the city's April election, has
gone on record against the package.
The city is seeking outside legal
counsel from William Grob on whether
to pay the bill for legal fees. It decided
not to consult City Attorney Tom Cloud
who was involved with reviewing the
severance agreement without the
knowledge of two of the commission-
ers. It ignored Cloud's recommendation


to use the city's labor attorney after City
Manager Ken Sauer told the commis-
sion that the firm had already declared
that it has a conflict of interest in the
matter.
West remains undaunted.
"We were proven right in court."
He said he and Wilkinson are entitled
by state law to collect their legal fees
because they won the case. He said he
would file suit against his fellow com-
missioners if they deny the request to
pay their attorney, Robin Gibson of Lake
Wales. West said the recall committee's
appeal is "a tactic to make it look like
we're spending the city's money."
West characterized the recall com-
mittee as "a bunch of angry individuals
who have nothing better to do."
He declined to say whether there
would be any limit on the amount of
legal fees he would run up on the city's
tab if need be in order to get paid.
Watts declined to react to West's
comment except to point out that the
committee represents over 1,500 voters.
The city has an insurance policy that
would pay Gibson's bill, except for a


$2,500 deductible, according to Sauer.
"I'm happy to continue to represent
West and Wilkinson. I'm disappointed
for the citizens who will have to pay
more money in legal fees," said Gibson.
He said, win or lose, the city is, by state
law, on the hook for his fees because
his clients "acted within the scope of
their duties."
"I respectfully disagree (with Gibson
regarding who pays legal fees)," said Cliff
Shepard of Maitland who continues to
represent recall committee chair Gerald
Amos. He said that, in order for West's
and Wilkinson's legal fees to be paid by
the city in the event they were to lose,
they would have to establish not only
that they were acting within the scope of
their duties but that "some public pur-
pose was served by their action."
Shepard said he will look to the ap-
peals court to define misfeasance be-
cause, under McDonald's ruling, it is dif-
ficult to see that there is any such thing
as misfeasance despite the fact that it is
in state law as grounds for a recall.
Neither Wilkinson nor Tyler could be
reached for comment.


Lookin' beautiful, doll face


Woman rescues dolls for a living ,"o.... .


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEfNER@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
Over the past years, a number of
rescue organizations and individu-
als have sprung up. The majority of
them focus on animals such as par-
ticular dog breeds, horses and oth-
ers. But Dottie Smith has a different
mission. She rescues dolls. Yes, dolls,
and several of them are among those
currently on display at the Historic
Dundee Depot.
In a "rescue," Smith, 77, does not
remove dolls from abusive situa-
tions although sometimes some
of the dolls look as if they have gone
through a war she restores them.
She pointed to a large doll, one that
stood approximately three feet tall, a
Patty Play Pal, from the 1950s.
"I paid $2 for it at a flea market in
Hollywood (Florida)," Smith said.
"She had gum in her hair and was
filthy."
Smith put the doll in the shower,
just like she used to do when her
children were small. She also put
peanut butter in the hair to get the
gum out, then shampooed the hair.
"She turned out pretty neat."
Smith did not start out to rescue
dolls, and she does not do it for a
living. However, she has the ability
to rescue that is, restore dolls
where and when professionals have
failed, and that is what Smith finds
appealing.
"I like that part best," she said,
"making them look better."
Another Patty Play Pal at the de-
pot, the "Miracle Doll," is not part of
Smith's collection, but is one Smith
restored.
"It was in an attic, about to be
thrown out with the garbage when
Margaret Kampsen got it," said
Martha Lowe, who is active with the
train depot committee. Kampsen,
now deceased, was director of the
depot at the time the doll was ac-
quired.
"When she found it, she tried to
clean it up and couldn't."
Kampsen then gave the doll to
Lowe, who also was not successful in
her attempts, so Kampsen contacted
Smith. Unlike Kampsen and Lowe,
Smith rescued the doll.
Smith remembered another time

Dottie Smith, 77, shows the before and after
pictures of the Shari Lewis doll she restored
back in the 1990s. After returning the doll to
its owners, she heard from them that the doll's
value was assessed at $6,000.
she restored a doll, and claimed just
thinking about it still makes her
shudder.
"People I worked with at Motorola,
in Plantation, had a Shari Lewis doll;
Shari Lewis was a children's TV per-
sonality who first rose to fame in the
late 1950s-early 1960s. The doll was
in a doll hospital over a year. All they
did was fix the dress," said Smith,
who said the face still appeared
"rusty." She asked them if she could
try restoring the doll's face and was
given the doll. She succeeded where
the doll hospital people had not. "It
took about a week."
In that time, the doll's owners did
some research, and what they told
Smith came as a shock. The doll, by
Madame Alexander, a leading doll
manufacturer, was valued at $6,000.
"I almost had a heart attack think-
ing, 'What if something went wrong?'
But it didn't," a relieved Smith said.
Smith said she came by her ability
to clean and restore dolls through
trial and error. However, she would
not elaborate upon her technique


Among the number of dolls on display at the
Historic Dundee Depot is a series known as
Baby-Face Dolls, so named because of the
expressions.
and what she uses that allows her to
succeed where others have not.
Smith now has more than 300 dolls
of all sizes and from many eras. Most
come from garage sales and flea
markets. She began to actively col-
lect dolls about 20 years ago, but her
start began years earlier, when her
daughter was about 12. The daugh-
ter felt she was too old for dolls and
was about to throw them out when
Smith's mother intervened and took
the dolls and stored them. Twenty
years ago, she returned them to
Smith, who discovered one of them
was a Shirley Temple doll. That was
all it took to get Smith started.

This Patty Play Pal doll was in rough
shape when Patty Smith acquired it
for $2 at a flea market.

Wednesday Novembe 1


Take a trip back to


1770s for a bit of Christmas


Colonial Christmas is returning
and every 15 minutes guests can go
through Josh and J. Lenora Bresler's
home to take a trip back to the 1770s.
Presented by Geneva Classical
Academy, a private classical Christian
school in Lakeland, the unique inter-
active holiday event at Kingscliff at
987 Lake Hollingsworth Drive, is the
second year 20 costumed interpret-
ers will greet guests in seven themed
rooms, where they will participate in
15-minute vignettes of how Christ-
mastide was celebrated in 1770s'
America.
Guests will join in colonial dances,
eat tavern food, participate in period
political discussions, learn about
holiday, wedding, and hospitality
traditions, play colonial games, watch
excerpts from colonial-era plays,
and engage in storytelling as told by
slaves who celebrated the holiday.
The event is a fundraiser but also an
awareness-raiser for Geneva, which
teaches in the classical model the
education America's early patriots
enjoyed.
Colonial Christmas is the brain-
child of J. Lenora Bresler, a leadership


and motivational speaker, who has
consulted with experts from Colonial
Williamsburg, Va. A descendant of a
medic in Washington's army during
the Revolutionary War, Bresler enjoys
sharing the nation's past with others.
"When we think of an old-fash-
ioned Christmas, we are thinking
about Victorian traditions that came
into practice 50 years after Washing-
ton and Jefferson's lifetimes. How our
founding fathers celebrated is a mys-
tery to most of us, but they certainly
celebrated for all the 12 days of
Christmas," said Bresler.
The 90-minute event takes place
from 6-9:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3,
and from 1:30-5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4.
Guests will enjoy wassail drink and
colonial caroling on the front porch
while they wait to enter the colonial-
style home patterned after South
Carolina's Orton Plantation, which
was built in 1775. Groups will enter
every 15 minutes.
Tickets are $15 for adults and
$10 for youth up to 18. They can be
bought at Geneva Classical Academy,
4410 East CR 540A, Lakeland or at the
event. Call (863) 644-1408.

PSC Chain of Lakes


Collegiate High School


tutors teach fire safety


There were lots of wide eyes, bright
smiles and excited gasps recently as a
group of elementary school students
and their Polk State Chain of Lakes
Collegiate High School tutors ex-
plored a fire truck and learned about
firefighting equipment.
Since March, a group of 17 Polk State
Chain of Lakes Collegiate High School
students have made weekly visits to
the Winter Haven Housing Authority's
Journey Learning Center at the Lake
Deer Apartments. During the hour-
and-a-half sessions, the tutors work
with students who attend Pinewood
and Eagle Lake elementary schools.
The tutors typically emphasize
reading, writing and vocabulary skills,
but during October designated as
National Fire Prevention Month the
tutors also taught fire safety tips. Their
lessons complemented a fire safety
poster contest sponsored by the Hous-
ing Authority Insurance Group.
The tutors taught the students about
preventing fires, when to call 911,


and how to recognize fire alarms and
extinguishers. They also helped the
students to develop individualized fire
escape plans for their homes. The stu-
dents used that information in creat-
ing their posters.
"Some of them knew to call 911, but
we taught them about things like mak-
ing sure the stove is off and to have a
meeting place where they'll be able to
find their parents if there is a fire," said
Cole Duncan, a junior at Polk State
Chain of Lakes Collegiate who lives in
Winter Haven.
The underlying message of the fire-
safety lessons was that the children
and their parents need to talk about
fire prevention and safety well before a
flame sparks.
"We want them to know that it's
important to be informed about fire
safety," said Marssiel Mena, a senior
who lives in Poinciana.
Earlier this month, a visit from a Win-
ter Haven Fire Department crew helped
bring those fire-safety lessons to life.

'Fill-a-Bag' for homeless students


Polk County Public Schools' Hearth
Project has kicked off its "Fill-A-Bag"
campaign to help students who are
homeless or at risk of becoming
homeless.
Rather than being just a holiday
project, the campaign will run all
year long, collecting and distribut-
ing hygiene necessities, as inventory
allows.
Only new items should be used to
fill gallon or larger size plastic zip-
per bags. They should be filled with
shampoo/conditioner, toothbrushes
and toothpaste, bath soap, brushes/
combs, deodorant and washcloths.
Gift cards for food, gas, and cloth-
ing are other items that can be
included in the Fill-a-Bag.
Individually filled bags (not indi-
vidual items) may be sent by mail or
courier to: Dee Dee Wright, Hearth


Portable, PCPS District Office, 1915
Floral Ave., Bartow, FL 33830.
Any department, school, business
or organization that would like to
participate on a larger scale, or any-
one who needs more information,
may call the Hearth Office at (863)
534-0801.
The Hearth Project, under the
federal McKinney-Vento Homeless
Education Act, provides Polk County
homeless students with educational
stability and assistance.
Monetary donations are also ac-
cepted for the payment of services
or items for these students. Checks
should be made payable to the Polk
Education Foundation with "Hearth
Project" noted on the memo line.

FEELING


Is the answer to Alzheimer's in your cup of coffee?



We may never know
p2ef


By RICHARD MARTIN
ST. PETERSBURG TIMES
TAMPA Chuanhai Cao
used to drink tea.
But that was before he and a
colleague at the University of
South Florida found that the
caffeine in coffee could help
prevent or delay the symptoms
of Alzheimer's disease.
"Now I drink coffee, about
two cups a day," says Cao, an
assistant professor of molecu-
lar pharmacology and physiol-
ogy at the USF Byrd Alzheim-
er's Institute, whose study on
caffeine was published a few
months ago in the Journal of
Alzheimer's Disease.
But Cao and others recognize
that despite such evidence,
caffeine may never get the kind
of attention needed to conduct
a large-scale study that might
offer more definitive evidence
that it works.
Why? The answer lies with
two things: mice and money.
Most of the research to date,
including Cao's, has involved
treating mice specially bred to
develop Alzheimer's symptoms.
And what works with mice
frequently does not translate to
humans.
But the bigger obstacle is
money. Government fund-
ing for Alzheimer's research,
already less than that for
other deadly diseases, has been
shrinking. And pharmaceuti-
cal companies which fund
most major clinical trials these
days can't make money off
something like caffeine.
"Without a doubt there are
things that are going to get
ignored because you can't
make money from it," said Dr.
Amanda Smith, medical direc-
tor of the Byrd Institute.
There are about 100 drugs
that are being tested as possi-
ble treatments for Alzheimer's.
Only five have been approved
to date, yet none do anything
to slow the progression of the
memory-robbing disease that
afflicts more than 5 million
Americans.
Could the answer be in the
piping hot beverage at your
breakfast table?
* *

Caffeine is a natural stimu-
lant found in more than 60
plants, including coffee beans
and tea leaves, and added
to various foods, drinks and
medicines. The Food and Drug
Administration estimates that
more than 80 percent of U.S.
adults consume an average of
200 milligrams of caffeine a
day the equivalent of two
5-ounce cups of coffee.
To most people, caffeine's
main purpose is to keep you
awake. But its health effects
have been studied for years,
both for its potential benefits
to treat conditions such as liver
disease, diabetes, and apnea


in premature infants; and as a
potential contributor to cardiac
arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation
and insomnia.
But lately, attention has
focused on what it could mean
for Alzheimer's disease.
In 2009, USF scientists found
that heavy jolts of caffeine
reinvigorated the brains of old,
demented mice. And this year,
Cao and then-USF colleague
Gary Arendash found that
caffeinated coffee specifically
might help prevent or delay
Alzheimer's symptoms.
Using the specially bred
mice, their study found that
caffeinated coffee caused an
increase in blood levels of a
growth factor called GCSF, or
granulocyte colony-stimu-
lating factor. GCSF is greatly
decreased in patients with
Alzheimer's, and it also has
been demonstrated to improve
memory in Alzheimer's mice.
But Cao said much work lies
ahead. He'd like to test people,
perhaps a group of 60. If results
are positive, he'd want to ex-
pand to more than 300 subjects
over a one- or two-year period.
He estimated a study of 60
people would cost $500,000,
and the larger one at least $2.5
million, but he has funds for
neither.
A major clinical trial would
cost much more. An eight-year
government-funded study on
whether Ginkgo biloba was
beneficial to Alzheimer's pa-
tients cost about $36.5 million
(the dietary supplement was
found to be ineffective).
In 2010, the government
allotted $450 million for
Alzheimer's research, down
from $600 million three years
earlier. That compares with
$5.8 billion for cancer,
$3 billion for HIV/AIDS and
$1.3 billion for heart disease,
according to the National
Institutes of Health.
Alzheimer's research is "hid-
eously underfunded," Smith
said.
"It's extremely hard," Cao
said of securing funding at
a time when pharmaceuti-
cal companies are financing
much of the research. "People
normally don't want to invest
in these kinds of therapeutics,
where there's no intellectual
property."



There are some avenues for
the study of natural substances
like caffeine. One is the Al-
zheimer's Disease Cooperative
Study, a government-funded
research consortium.
Smith, who serves on its
steering committee, said the
group is studying therapies
such as exercise, vitamins and
supplements.
There's also the National
Center for Complementary
and Alternative Medicine,
which was involved in the

has been shrinking. And pharmaceutical companies which fund most major clinical trials these days can't

Ginkgo study.
Might either group fund
major research into caffeine, or
caffeinated coffee?
Dr. William Thies, chief
medical and scientific officer
of the national Alzheimer's As-
sociation, said what's working
against caffeine is that most
of the studies on it have been
small.
"And, you'd have to have a
pretty clear body of evidence
that it works," he said. "I think
at this point, it is virtually
impossible to make a judgment
on whether caffeine or coffee
has a clinical benefit or harm
in a human being."
Then there's the mouse issue.
David Morgan, CEO of the Byrd
Institute, said there are about
200 different agents that have
shown benefits in the Alzheim-
er's mice. "But nothing has
translated to humans," he said.
There are also some well-es-
tablished side effects to exces-
sive caffeine jitters, insom-
nia, rapid heartbeat, elevated
blood pressure, headaches,
nervousness and/or dizziness.
"Many seniors find .caffeine
very difficult to tolerate," Mor-
gan said.
Smith notes another caution:
"Truth is, there are lots of peo-
ple who consume lots of caf-
feine and still get Alzheimer's."



Cao plans to press on. He's
working with a chemical
engineer to identify a compo-
nent in coffee that somehow
interacts with the caffeine to
achieve the Alzheimer's ben-
efit. He's been in touch with
a colleague in Tianjin, China,
who is interested in a caffein-
ated coffee study there.
"Our initial study is encour-
aging," he said. "And we have
people wanting to volunteer for
a trial in China."
Morgan and Smith are less
enthusiastic.
"I'm just very cautious in
showing any enthusiasm about

using caffeine, or even caffein-
ated coffee," Morgan said. "I'm
a little concerned that people
will start giving caffeine pills
to relatives with Alzheimer's.
People are desperate to try
anything."
"It's not going to be the thing
that changes the field in some


sort of spectacular way," said
Smith, who says she drinks her
fair share of coffee.
"I think maybe this will help
a little. Maybe I'll get (Alzheim-
er's) when I'm 85, instead of
80," she said. But mostly, "I
drink it so I don't fall asleep at
my desk."

Pain can be aftermath of shingles


SCMG Central Florida Page 51B


DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Two years
ago I had shingles, and I now suffer
the aftereffects of it. The sores went
away in a month, but the stinging,
burning, throbbing pain is still with
me. I cannot wear clothing over the
affected shoulder. No medicines have
eased the pain so far. Is there any
help? M.L.
ANSWER: You now are dealing with
postherpetic neuralgia, pain that
lingers long after the shingles rash has
gone. The virus that causes shingles is
the same virus that causes chickenpox.
Almost every adult on this continent
harbors that virus, now called herpes
zoster. It lives on in nerve cells. From
time to time, at older ages, it wakens
from its hibernation, travels down
the nerve to the skin and causes an
outbreak of blisters on a red base. The
outbreak goes away in about three
weeks. Pain can linger for a long time
- months, to years. In traveling down
the nerve, the virus damaged it.
I can list some of the postherpetic
neuralgia medicines. Two are antide-
pressants nortriptyline and amitrip-
tyline given not for depression but
for pain relief. Cymbalta (duloxetine)
is another antidepressant that can
lessen postherpetic pain. Lyrica
(pregabalin) is an anti-seizure medi-
cine that's approved for this problem.
Neurontin (gabapentin) is another sei-
zure medicine used for control of the
lingering pain of shingles. Capsaicin
lotion, cream or gel (Zostrix, Capsin,
R-Gel) is applied directly to the in-
volved skin. A higher concentration of
capsaicin comes as a patch that's ap-
plied in the doctor's office, left on for
an hour and then removed. Treatment
can be repeated in three months. It's


Ask Dr. Donohue

called Qutenza. Another skin patch is
the Lidoderm patch. The latest medi-
cine is Gralise, an extended-release
form of gabapentin Neurontin. It
requires fewer doses.
The entire shingles story is covered
in the booklet on that topic. Readers
can obtain a copy by writing:
Dr. Donohue No. 1201, Box 536475,
Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a
check or money order (no cash) for
$4.75 U.S./$6 Can. with the recipient's
printed name and address. Please al-
low four weeks for delivery.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: You had a
column in the paper about the shaking
illness that affected actress Katharine
Hepburn. You said it wasn't nerves. I
meant to keep the column, but the pa-
per got thrown out. Would you repeat
the information? C.R.
ANSWER: The illness is essential
tremor, also called familial tremor
because it often turns up in many
members of a family. It's isn't "nerves"
in the popular sense of that word im-
plying nervousness. It has to do with a
dysfunction of the motor-control part
of the brain. "Motor" here indicates
muscle action.
Essential tremor makes it hard to
bring a spoonful of soup to the mouth,
to write or to do anything requiring


precise use of the hands. The tremor
can affect the head, as it did in Ms.
Hepburn's case. It might even give the
voice a trembling quality.
Propranolol or primidone can sup-
press the tremor for most people, if
treatment is necessary. Some people
are so mildly affected that they don't
want treatment. Others are so pro-
foundly affected that medicines can't
control the shakiness. In such cases,
brain stimulation often can restore
normal movement.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: As someone
preparing for a liver biopsy, please
discuss the procedure, recovery and
possible side effects. R.J.
ANSWER: Doctors perform a liver
biopsy with a needle attached to a
suction device that can capture a thin
piece of the organ for microscopic
examination. The needle is inserted
through the skin over the liver. First
the doctor cleans the skin with an
antiseptic and often numbs it. The
procedure takes less than a minute.
You return home shortly thereafter.
Side effects are rare. Bleeding is pos-
sible. So is infection. Neither happens
frequently.
You don't have to prepare yourself in
any special way.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am 52. As a
teen, I developed migraines. I sort of
outgrew them. I have three children,
and with each pregnancy the mi-
graines returned. When I was 50, I was
diagnosed with osteoporosis. I already
have compression fractures due to
it. I was told to take calcium, and I
did. Taking calcium brought back the
migraines. I quit the calcium, and the
migraines went away. I began to eat
yogurt and drink extra milk daily. The


migraines returned. I stopped both,
and the headaches went away.
My doctor insisted that there is no
connection and put me on Fosamax. I
began to have regular headaches every
day and migraines at least once a
month. I quit Fosamax, and the head-
aches stopped. Now my doctor wants
me to take Prolia. I don't know what to
do. Any suggestions? M.R.
ANSWER: Fifty is a young age to
have osteoporosis. Compression
fractures, collapse of the backbones,
indicate that it's an advanced stage of
osteoporosis. Those bones are so weak
that they cannot support body weight.
Fosamax and the related bisphospho-
nate drugs don't raise blood calcium;
they inhibit bone breakdown by
moderating the action of body cells
that demolish bones. Prolia is a new
osteoporosis treatment. It doesn't raise
blood calcium either. It stops bone
destruction by restraining the same
bone-eating cells, but in a different
way.
Calcium and vitamin D are almost
always recommended in an osteopo-
rosis program.
You do face a dilemma. I can't tell
you if Prolia will bring back your
headaches. I am convinced, however,
that you need osteoporosis treatment.
If your headaches return, would you
consider the newer migraine medi-
cines like Imitrex, Amerge and Zomig?
They weren't available when you had
migraines in the past. I don't want to
fill you with medicines, but I don't
want you to forgo osteoporosis treat-
ment. In the long run, osteoporosis
can be more damaging to you than
migraine headaches, bad as they are.
The decision rests with you.

EMS program honors preceptor, instructor of the year


The Polk State College
Emergency Medical Services
program has bestowed its an-
nual Preceptor of the Year and
Instructor of the Year awards.
Taking the Preceptor of the
Year honor was Carol Barnes,
the program's longest-serving,
continuous preceptor. Barnes
is a Polk County EMS para-
medic stationed in Lake Alfred.
In her role as a preceptor,
Barnes supervises aspiring
"paramedics and emergency
medical technicians, who
must complete hundreds of
hours of ride-along training.
She has volunteered as a pre-
ceptor for Polk State for more


than 27 years.
EMS Program Director Don
Guillette said Barnes equips
her students with the ability
to think about their patients'
conditions and treat them on a
more personal level.
"She makes our students
thinking paramedics, not
just cookbook paramedics,"
Guillette said.
Guillette explained that
Barnes requires her students
to talk to their patients, touch
their skin and take a manual
pulse.
While various pieces of
medical equipment will give
precise blood pressure and


temperature readings, physi-
cal contact with a patient gives
paramedics valuable informa-
tion, Barnes said.
"I'm more old-school, and a
lot of people are more new-
school," Barnes said. "The
technology is there to help
you do treatments, but you
still need to think about what
you're doing and why you're
doing it, not just hook the
patient up to a machine."
Taking the program's In-
structor of the Year honor was
RafVittone, a district chief
with Polk County Fire Res-
cue who has been an adjunct
instructor for the program for


nearly six years.
Vittone completed his para-
medic training at Polk State
College, and said he relishes
the opportunity to train those
just entering the EMS field.
"It's one of the greatest ca-
reers you could ever have and
I like lending something to the
students' beginning," he said.
Vittone is qualified to teach
any regular or continuing-
education course within the
EMS program, Guillette said.
In addition to teaching his
own courses, he also fills in for
other instructors as needed
and instructs classes for the
Polk State College Kenneth C.


Thompson Institute of Public
Safety.
"He's always here early," said
Guillette. "He does his home-
work and he leads by example.
He is truly dedicated to the
program."
Vittone previously won the
award in 2009.
Polk State's EMS program
was established in 1975. Today,
the program draws students
from as far away as Pinellas
County. The program's stu-
dents regularly exceed state
averages on the paramedic and
EMT licensing exams. The pro-
gram graduates approximately
150 students each year.


SPSC students create rain garden


A group of Polk State
College students recently
transformed a large patch of
grass and sand into a garden
that will help filter rain and
recharge the Floridan Aqui-
fer System.
For about two hours, the
students dug and raked,
planted and watered, letting
lessons learned in the class-
room take root and bloom
in the process.
The students are in

Polk County Public Schools

wins National AP Award


Polk County Public Schools (PCPS)
has been selected as the National Ad-
vanced Placement (AP) District of the
Year Award by The College Board.
The annual award was presented for
Polk's efforts to make AP classes avail-
able to "a significantly broader pool
of students and for increased student
achievement."
"We are extremely proud that we
have been selected for this national
award which recognizes significant im-
provements in both student access and
student performance in Polk County,"
Superintendent of Schools, Sherrie B.
,Nickell said.
"This is a great achievement in
excellence and equity for our students,


teachers, school administrators, and
district staff."
The 2012 AP District of the Year
awards will be presented at the AP an-
nual conference in 2012.
"This honor represents the culmina-
tion of five years of efforts to increase
student accessibility and excelling in
higher level classes," said Associate Su-
perintendent for Learning David Lewis.
"The fact that our efforts are being
recognized on a national level makes
this award all the more special. I would
certainly like to recognize the tremen-
dous work of our students and staff
and the support of The College Board.
This is truly a great partnership which
ultimately benefits our students."


ronment on a global level.
This semester, Whitcomb
incorporated service-learn-
ing into the class, allowing
her students to put their
studies into practice while
also bettering their sur-
roundings.
To complement their
classroom instruction, stu-
dents met with City of Win-
ter Haven Natural Resources
Division Director Mike Britt
to learn about the Floridan
Aquifer and how it is im-
pacted by urbanization.
He explained the concept
of rain gardens and why
they are beneficial to the
environment; the city is

gardens within its boundar-
ies. In short, rain gardens
contain native plants and
help redirect water runoff
into the ground, where it
can recharge the aquifer.
The city's Natural Re-
sources Coordinator, Mary
Thornhill, instructed the
students on the need to use
Florida-friendly landscap-
ing that can withstand the
state's weather conditions.
Inspired by what they
learned, the students
decided to create a rain
garden on the Winter Haven
campus.
"I'm very impressed,"
Britt said. "A lot of students
get the academic part, but


not many get the hands-on
piece."
The students began by se-
lecting the location, a grassy
area northwest of the Ad-
ministration Building where
rain puddles before being
sent into storm drains. Then
they got to work designing
and selecting plants. For
that, they consulted master

Read my eyes: Turning science fiction into fact


It's almost de rigueur for movies and-
literature portraying the future: Folks
have devices that allow them to see and
read information in real-time, usually
on some sort of screen in front of their
eyes.
In a case of science fiction turning
into science fact, engineers at the Uni-
versity of Washington and Aalto Uni-
versity in Finland say they've created
a "proof-of-concept" contact lens that
could potentially allow wearers to see
real-time information projected onto
their retinas.
Right now, the experimental lens
contains just a single pixel, but if the
engineers can figure out how to cram
multiple pixels and related machin-
ery into the lens, they suggest wearers
might someday be able to read short
emails, get navigating instructions or be
alerted to up-to-date health informa-
tion such as blood sugar levels.

Body of
knowledge
The adrenal glands, whose main job
is to release hormones such as cortisol
and adrenaline in response to stress,
sit atop the kidneys. In the seventh
month of a fetus' development, the
glands are roughly the same size as
the kidneys. At birth, they've shrunken
slightly, something they will continue
to do throughout life. By the time
you're an old person, the glands are
almost too small to be seen.

Doc talk
Foreverectomy a surgical proce-
dure that lasts a very long time.

Life in Big Macs
One hour of playing folk music on a
guitar while sitting burns 136 calories
(based on a 150-pound person) or the
equivalent of 0.2 Big Macs.

Counts
Sixty Reduced long-term risk, as a
percentage, of bowel cancer for people
who regularly take aspirin.
Source: Diana Eccles, University of
Southampton
Stories for the
waiting room
According to a new report in the
Archives of Internal Medicine, as many
as 1 in 5 Americans suffers from hearing
loss severe enough to affect their daily
life. That's roughly 48 million people
with at least partial hearing loss in at
least one ear.
Aging is the most common factor, but
loud music and ear buds may be big
culprits as well. The good news, though,
is that recent numbers suggest hearing-
loss risk is trending down as folks get
smarter about protecting their ears,
mostly by avoiding louder industrial
jobs.
The most common sources of noise-
induced hearing loss are explosions,
power tools, music and ordinary
machinery. Experts say the best way to


protect your ears is to wear appropriate
earplugs or noise-reducing earmuffs.

Phobia of the week
Apeirophobia fear of infinity.

Never say diet
The world's speed-eating record for
pickled whole beef tongue is 3 pounds,
3 ounces in 12 minutes, held by Domi-
nic Cardo.

Observation
"A doctor's reputation is made by the
number of eminent men who die under
his care."
Irish playwright George Bernard
Shaw (1855-1950)

Curtain calls
Henry Hall (1661-1755) was a light-
house keeper who worked on the Eddys-
tone Lighthouse, nine miles southwest of
Rame Head in county Cornwall. On
Dec. 3, 1755, an errant lamp spark
ignited the lighthouse roof. Hall and
two companions were unable to douse
the flames and retreated to the ground
where they stared upward, open-
mouthed, as they watch the lighthouse
burn to the ground.
At some point, doctors later concluded,
molten lead from the lighthouse lamp
plummeted from the burning structure,
striking Hall's face and open mouth.
Some of the lead actually reached Hall's
stomach. He died a few days later. The
chunk of lead was saved and now resides
in the National Museum of Scotland.


Stories for the
waiting room
Here's some sobering news: Roughly
4 million Americans drink and drive
each year, resulting in a whopping 112
million episodes in 2010 in which an
inebriated motorist put people (in-
cluding themselves) at risk, according
to the Centers for Disease Control.
That works out to almost 300,000
incidents of drinking and driving per
day, which in turn translates into
nearly 11,000 people killed every year-
in crashes involving an alcohol-im-
paired driver.
And who are these drunk drivers?
Based on data from the 2010 Behav-
ioral Risk Factor Surveillance Study,
they are male (81 percent of drunk
drivers), young (males 21-34 make
up 11 percent of the U.S. population,
but account for 32 percent of drunk
driving episodes) and binge drinkers
(85 percent of drunk drivers report-
edly consumed five or more drinks in
a short period before getting behind
the wheel).

Doc talk
Acute gravity attack the patient fell
over.

Phobia of the week

Chorophobia fear of dancing.
