Care Center hoping


to do even more


this holiday season

Meeting the need a challenge

around the holidays


Christmas

officiall'


arrives


By JAMES COULTER
NEws CORRESPONDENT
The Frostproof Care Center hopes
to give food, toys, and gifts to more
families this holiday season than they
did last season.
To do so would be quite a feat, and
will require the contributions and coor-
dination of many.
The faith-based community service
organization handed out 280 food
boxes and 530 Christmas gifts last year.
Executive Director Ralph Waters said
they have already collected toys for over
300 children, adding they have enough
food for now, but they would like to be
able to restock their shelves for their
other needs.
"Around this time of year, people give
a lot of food," he said. "But for the rest
of the year, we need to keep our shelves
stocked to meet our needs throughout
the rest of the year."
Waters said the community has been


very responsive donating food and
gifts. Several local businesses, banks,
schools, and mobile home parks have
held toy and food drives in order to as-
sist the center.
"Our community has been very
generous," he said. "We want to thank
them all for their support for their com-
munity."
The Frostproof Care Center has
been assisting local disadvantaged
families for over 22 years. Following
the motto of "give a man a fish, he eats
for a day; teach a man to fish, he eats
for a lifetime," the center offers both
short-term aid by providing basic needs
(food, rent, utilities), and long term aid
by offering educational and mentoring
programs.
"Our mission is to demonstrate
Christ's love by helping those in need,
by loving your neighbor," Waters said.
"We always stress that this is 'your'

VIEWPOINT



Day of infamy followed by greatest resolve


Seventy years ago today, everything changed
when, as President Franklin Roosevelt put it,
"the United States of America was suddenly and
deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of
the Empire of Japan." It was, Roosevelt famously
said, "a date which will live in infamy."
He was right about that, of course. The date
is carved deeply into our national conscious-
ness, and we expect it will remain there long
after the last Americans breathing on that day
have passed from the world they saved from an
unimaginable tyranny.
Dec. 7, 1941, was the hinge point of the cen-
tury that would later become known as the
"American Century." To no small extent it took
on that title because of the events of Dec. 7. But
what happened on the day itself was simply the
trigger: What mattered was the response. The
attack on Pearl Harbor on a quiet Sunday morn-
ing shocked the American public into a unified
resolve that came to define the nation and the
century.
In a radio address two days later, Roosevelt


Our Viewpoint

sketched the immediate future: "On the road
ahead there lies hard work grueling work -
day and night, every hour and every minute. I
was about to add that ahead there lies sacrifice
for all of us. But it is not correct to use that word.
The United States does not consider it a sacrifice
to do all one can, to give one's best to our nation
when the nation is fighting for its existence and
its future. ... Rather it is a privilege."
But it was, indeed, a sacrifice. The nation
mobilized. Men and women rallied and sac-
rificed on the home front. Men and women
went to war. Some 16 million joined the armed
forces. More than 400,000 were killed and nearly
700,000 wounded before the Japanese signed
terms of surrender on Sept. 2, 1945.
Roosevelt closed his "Fireside Chat" of Dec. 9,
1941, with these words: "The true goal we seek
is far above and beyond the ugly field of battle.


When we resort to force, as now we must, we
are determined that this force shall be directed
toward the ultimate good as well as against the
immediate evil. We Americans are not destroy-
ers; we are builders.
And then: "We are going to win the war, and
we are going to win the peace that follows.
"Again in the dark hours of this day and
through the dark days that may be yet to come
- we will know that the vast majority of the
members of the human race are on our side.
Many of them are fighting with us. All of them
are praying for us. For, in representing our cause,
we represent theirs as well our hope and their
hope for liberty under God."
Today, we reflect on the incalculable debt we
owe to the Americans of that era the aptly
named "Greatest Generation," whose privilege it
was to sacrifice and create a world where liberty
could flourish and grow. One hundred years
from this date, we expect, the world will still
wonder at their remarkable ability to fulfill those
hopes.


It's not easy being Pope


II Papa.
His Holiness.
The Pontiff.
The Holy See.
Vicar of Christ.
Leader of Roman Catholics through-
out the world.
Admired by millions of non-Catholics.
Arguably the most recognized leader
of the faithful in the world.
German scofflaw.
Say what?

An unnamed German citizen filed a
complaint against Pope Benedict XVI
for not buckling a seatbelt while riding
in the Popemobile on a recent visit to
the southern German city of Freiburg.
Adding to the indignity of trying to
get the pope fined under Germany's
version of the Click It or Ticket law, the
anonymous complainant identified the
offender as "Mr. Joseph Ratzinger," the
pre-papal name of the German-born
pontiff.
The complaint alleged that the infrac-
tion occurred for more than an hour on
Sept. 24 and 25, and the complainant's
lawyer, Christian Sundermann, even
provided a YouTube clip of the unbelted
pope.

For those unfamiliar with the pre-
ferred form of papal transportation, the
vehicle commonly referred to as the
Popemobile (or Papamobile in Italy) is
a three-ton bulletproof Mercedes Benz
modified to look like a glorified golf
cart.
Actually, as with the fleet of airplanes
all bearing the title of Air Force One,
there are a number of Popemobiles,
more than 50 over the past 80 years,
from my research. The most elaborate

one I could find looked like an old
television quiz show isolation booth
mounted on a Volkswagen mini-bus.
The seating for the pope actually is a
throne, suggesting to me that perhaps
the appropriate term would be throne-
belt.

Violation of Germany's seatbelt law is
punishable by a fine of from 30 to 2,500
euros, the equivalent of 40 to 3,340
bucks American.
So will His Holiness have to pony up
that kind of money?
Happily, he will not.
First, there is the issue that even
though born in Germany, he is now the
head of a foreign state. I am not sure
what that means in Germany, but in
Washington, D.C., if you drive a car with
so much as a diplomatic license plate,
you have the closest thing this. country
issues to a license to kill.
However, the German charges were
dismissed on less esoteric grounds: the
street on which the Holy See was travel-
ing was closed to all other traffic, and
the seatbelt law did not apply.
"There will be no fine for the pope,"
government spokesman Edith Lamers-
dorf told the daily newspaper Bad-

ushers in holiday season


-Hu'-Tj-, I-' TH,-,RriT,' 1 IJ l H


Temperatures were a little chilly Saturday night, well, maybe seasonal would be a better descrip-
tion, but the hundreds and hundreds of parade goers did need to pull out jackets to keep warm.


It's not quite the Polar Express, but the Ferguson's Distribution Warehouse train float is always a
colorful attraction.


With its palm trees and hammock, Project Graduation's float won the award for best use of theme.


Children of all ages got free stuffed animals during
the parade. Members of the high school's Interact Club
handed them out from the Care Center float which of
course featured Santa. Officials estimated that some
2,000 stuffed animals were distributed.


Best Overall Float honors went to this entry from Family Life Church. -2 M i w A I J

Florida spared during 2011 hurricane season


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @ POLKCOL NTYDEMOCRAT.COM'

With the departure of the 2011 hur-
ricane season there was good and bad.
The good was in the southern region with
Florida not having a storm to hit land for
the sixth year in a row, but states in the
Northeast and countries in the Caribbean
were not so lucky.
"In 2005 we had Katrina and Wilma that
impacted the state," said Pete McNally,
the emergency management director of
Polk County, who also recalled the year
before when Polk County was hit by three
hurricanes.
"We had three storms in that year. We've
earned our rest," he said. A fourth storm
that year went through South Florida.
'. i lrna was the last major storm to hit
Florida, which cut an unusually large
swath of damage across Florida in 2005.
This year, the season produced the
third-highest number of tropical storms
on record, with 19, but only a slightly
higher-than-average number of hurri-
canes, with six.
The season ended Wednesday without
a "major" storm hitting land, yet Irene was
one of the costliest storms in U.S. history,
killing at least 47 people in the United
States and at least eight more in the Carib-
bean and Canada.
Irene was not considered a major hurri-
cane because it did not have winds exceed-
ing 111 mph, or Category 3, when it made
landfall in North Carolina on Aug. 27.
In late August, Irene caught many New
Englanders by surprise as it followed a rare
path, brushing up the Eastem seaboard
from North Carolina, across the Mid-
Atlantic and near New York City, where
meteorologists said they couldn't ever
recall a direct hurricane hit. NewYork
officials ordered 370,000 people to leave
their homes and immobilized the nation's


biggest subway system.
Irene was by far the most destructive
event to hit Vermont in almost a century,
dumping up to 11 inches of rain in some
areas. The storm killed six people, damaged
or destroyed hundreds of miles of roads,
scores of bridges, hundreds of homes, and
left hundreds of people homeless.
About a dozen communities were cut off
by the storm for days, many without elec-
tricity or phone service, and had to receive
supplies from National Guard helicopters.
Repair estimates for public roads could
reach S250 rni!!,i I'
"You would think the impacts would be
somewhat light, but the damages caused
by Irene will be up there in one of the top
30 or so storms," National Hurricane Cen-
ter Director Bill Read said.
One of the reasons for storms not hitting
land this year has to do with the weather
patterns. Many storms in the Atlantic
veered northeast and continued into the
ocean.
Read said low pressure systems on the
East Coast and high pressure systems over
the central U.S. created favorable steer-
ing currents that kept the storms mostly
churning far out to sea.
Storms won't move into high pressure,
clearing the way for an easy storm season
for the U.S. Gulf Coast. An exception was
Tropical Storm Lee, which formed off the
Louisiana coast and drenched much of the
eastern U.S.
Also in the last couple of years, the
weather patterns have kept the South from
taking too much of the brunt from tropical
storms and hurricanes.
"In 1998 it was more severe and the El
Nifio dumped a lot of rain in the country,"
McNally said. He said in last few years there
has been La Nifia which is the opposite.
"It was another very odd year," said Dr.
Jeff Masters, Weather Underground's direc-
tor of meteorology.


The rare combination of near-record
ocean temperatures but unusually dry,
stable air over the Atlantic was partially
responsible for the unusually high count of
named storms, Masters said.
Hurricane Ophelia was the strongest
storm of the season, at one point strength-
ening to a Category 4 with 140 mph winds
when it was just northeast of Bermuda.
Ophelia hit southeastern Newfoundland,
Canada, as a tropical storm, but caused
little damage.
However, as odd as the season was,
McNally wants to remind people just how
dangerous a storm can be. Though it has
been years since people have experienced
one, they should not forget about not be-
ing able to get home, being without power
in the hot summer weather and not being


able to get supplies like food and gas, for
example.
"We have to continue to be vigilant
in the future," McNally said. "Hopefully
people won't get tired from hearing from
us.
The time to get prepared for next sea-
son, which starts June 1, is now, he said.
"People can get amnesia," he said of
residents and officials. "The people who
control money may want to reallocate
money to something else."
Hurricanes aren't the whole problem, he
said. It has to do with anything we haven't
had a bad experience with after a few years.
"Look at how terrorism protection
geared up after 2001. Now we're 10 years
out from it and the money toward it has
gotten tighter."

.. r,, allard. Ballard has three books in print, all of which may be purchased at Amazon.com.

Siho)r info below.) The three books maybe purchased as a set, or they maybe bought individu

Jo ,ler mystery?Try"Peace River,"set in Pinewood (Hardee) county. Like a fine, carefully-
o"ed story, but can't sit still long enough to read an entire novel? Read the 20 stories in
Bih, Snapshot & Other Stories: Tales from Flowing Wells." Like the novel, the stories are set in
I,, wood (Hardee) County and the town of Flowing Wells (Zolfo Springs). Ballard's latest book,
si rary Escapades," was released by RoseHeart Publishing in October ofthis year.
It is a selection of 65 newspaper and magazine columns, most of which are set in and around Hardee County, and 16 photos. "Escapades" contains material
that is historical, educational, and, above all, entertaining. It is fine reading for the entire family.

Journalist and Christian novelist, George L. Duncan, writes:
There are any number of good things that can be saidabout "Literary Escapades," the book of columns by teacher/writer Chip Ballard, the question is where to
begin. One critic said about John D. MacDonald's books that historians should read them because they describe Florida. The same historians should also pick up
Mr. Ballard's book. This is the essence of rural Florida, especially Hardee County, which is Mr. Ballard's residence. He tells of all the marvels, the wonders, the oddities
of the place and it makes interesting reading.
But it is notjust the past that Mr. Ballard writes about. He writes about life and humanity in general. Unlike mostpundits, he did not spend his career behind a desk.
He was a teacher and I believe spent many years handling the class where all the questionable kids were sent. It was their last stop before expulsion. Mr. Ballard has
seen and experienced a lot and many of those experiences are beautifully recreated in this book.
He takes shots at the "anything goes"philosophy of Peter Singer ofPrinceton, lacerates our justice system that lets criminals room free and offers other insights into
our culture. Lest anyone think he is a callous conservative, his "Old Man by the Side of the Road"story will resonate with readers for a long time. It will remind them o,
another old man in a short story by Hemingway. (Alas, I forget the title.) Hemingway's old man is caught in the Spanish Civil War. The story is only two or three pages
but the last line lingers forever with the reader. So will Ballard's old man.
The writer is a moral man in an increasingly immoral society, and a man of integrity in a world of deceit and lies. In a time of spin and counterspin, and where a fool
like Singer chairs an Ethics Department, Bllards language {and thoughts) are simple, direct, blunt. And, thus, refreshing.
Besides you have to love a book where one essay is titled, "Hank Williams, Hemingway and the Grim Reaper" Ballard can also be funny, as he is when he writes the
column telling the time when there were rumors of his death. It is hilarious.
A very, very goodbook."

Writes Professor Rick Wilber of Ballard's accumulation of work:
"Chip Ballard writes with heart and compassion about a part of Florida that's too often overlooked, the interior of the state. His writing is comfortable and
approachable, buthe's never afraid to see the dark edges aroundall that bright, Florida sunlight. He's earned a place among the best of those Florida writers
who understand their state and its joys and sorrows, its promise and itsperilous f6,tr"
-Rick Wilber, author of "The Cold Road,""My Father's Game,"
"Media Writir.g," "Future Media," and the bestselling mystery, "Rum Point."

charity collects only tabs because it is
much more sanitary than the whole
can. In 2010, the Fort Myers facility
reported that it raised about $6,100 on
pull tabs alone.
Bottle caps are also very collectible.
"The school as a whole, as well as
the community, have collected plastic
bottle caps for over a year and a half
now," noted Sheila Britt, a teacher at
the school who helps in the effort. "Last
year alone, we collected over 35,000
caps which was sent to a company in
New York to be recycled into various
plastic containers."
Hanna Terrebonne and Erin Sullivan
are involved in the collection of plas-


tic bottles for the FFA's Plastic Bottle
Recycle Project.
In addition to keeping the bottles out
of landfills, there are put to good use
when they are donated to Highland
Corporation for the manufacture of
clamshells, plastic boxes that are used
in the display of fruit for sale in stores.
That effort has been going on for over
three years, and has netted some 900
pounds of bottles.

Officers take on agri-terrorism


Many law agencies team up in exercise


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@LAKEWALESNEWS.COM
Training and practice. In addition to carrying out their
day-to-day responsibilities, it is what Polk County law en-
forcement, firefighters and emergency medical personnel
do on a constant basis.
Sometimes it is self-contained within an agency, while at
othI r tin w- it is a coordinated effort. Upon rare occasion, it
is done in conjunction with state or federal agencies, such
as the exercise conducted Tuesday, Dec. 6.
In a field on U.S. 17, several miles outside of Bartow city
limits, the Polk County Sheriff's Office hosted a multi-agen-
cy exercise, Operation Bovine Reclamation.
"Homeland Security called and asked us to do this," said
Carrie Eleazer, a public information officer with the PCSO.
She added that at first, Hillsborough County had been con-
tacted, but the exercise was moved to Polk County because
it had more rural land on which to do the exercise.
The operation focused primarily on preparing local
emergency responders and selected state agencies to effec-
tively respond to and work together during an agri-terror-
ism event in Florida. The exercise measured each agency's
capabilities in animal disease emergency support, commu-
nications, counter-terrorism investigation and law enforce-
ment, food and agricultural safety and defense, and on-site
incident management. Those participating considered the
full-scale exercise a valuable training tool.
"This is our first time," said Hillsborough County Sheriff's
Office Corporal Danny Connell of the group he was with.
"It's an opportunity for us to learn."

The exercise
Approximately 15 minutes following a debriefing by a
FEMA representative, the first to roll out in the training
exercise was the Bartow Fire Department, followed by Polk
County Emergency Medical Services. They responded to a
call on State Road 60 and County Road 630. A pickup truck
towing a cattle pen had been struck, broadsided by another


pickup truck. The driver of the cattle truck was injured. The
driver of the other vehicle, along with a passenger, had fled
the scene.
In the course of the collision, the gate to the pen was
sprung open and cattle were now wandering about; in ad-
d ir ij, r, several barrels in the other vehicle, later learned to
contain chlorine, had been tossed. In the scenario at least
one had sprung a leak, emitting a plume of chlorine into
the atmosphere.
Shortly after PCSO had secured the perimeter, it nabbed
the first of the two suspects. Handcuffed, he was pat-
ted down, and a deputy detected what appeared to be a
marijuana joint in the headband of the hat the suspect had
been wearing.
"That's not mine," the suspect said. "I don't know where
that came from."
The deputy immediately contacted his superior.
"Sergeant, I've got to meet up with you," he said. "I've got
some 10-43 to report." With that, he placed the suspect in
the back seat of his vehicle, then drove from the scene.
As the scene unfolded, people wearing either red, green
or black baseball caps watched. Several made notations.
Those wearing green caps were controllers. Their pur-
pose was to make sure objectives were being met, to keep
responses from going off-course. If they believed responses
were straying, their other purpose was to inject "measles,"
that is, route the exercise back to its stated objective.
The people wearing red caps were the evaluators. They
recorded how certain activities were performed. The pur-
pose of observers, said a FEMA coordinator who requested
in in', niti,, was to take in the entire activity, to see what
worked, what could perhaps be eliminated, as well as
where improvements could be made; not only to the ele-
ments of the scenario, but also the involvement of those
actively participating. At its conclusion, all of this would be
reviewed in what is termed a "hot wash."

The first of two suspects who fled the scene of the accident has
been captured during Operation Bovine Reclamation.

Bovine Reclamation with the U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture, Florida Departmnent of Agriculture and Consumer
Service, Florida Division of Emergency Management, State
Agricultural Response Team, Polk County Sheriff's Of-
fice, Polk County Department of Health, Polk County Fire
Department, and Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.
In addition, the Polk County Cattlemen's Association and
several local veterinarians and businesses volunteered and
contributed their time and resources.
The exercise, made possible by the Regional Exercise
Support Program (RESP) grant, took between six and eight
months to plan and prepare. Preparations included plan-
ning, designing a three-dimensional topography/model, all
followed up by a review that would include both what was
done best, as well as where deficiencies were noted.

All-Star football game this weekend


Twelve players from the Bartow,
Frostproof and Lake Wales high school
football teams will be among the
46 players on the field Saturday in
the South Central All-Star Classic in
Sebring.
The 13th annual game's kickoff is at
6:30 p.m. at the Sebring Fireman's Field
which is in downtown Sebring on the
east side of Lake Jackson. The game has
four seniors from eight high schools
representing the South and nine repre-
senting the Central.
"It's kind of a chance to play in their last
game," said organizer Austin Maddox.
Coaches from the teams picked
seniors who stood out for them in the
past year and some of the players on
the field are going to Division I schools.
Maddox said the game was organized
because the teams playing didn't get a
chance to play in an All-Star contest. It
has grown every year since it started in
1998. Each year scholarships are given
to players in the game and four $500
scholarships will be given to players
mostly based on their grade-point aver-


ages. Trophies will also be given to the
MVP and defensive MVP in the contest.
"This thing has been growing every
year," Maddox said. "Over the last
13 years we've given away $30,000 in
scholarships."
Teams in the game gathered in
Sebring Saturday to get to know each,
get ready for the game and to have the
coaches name their players.
Teams representing the South in the
game are Clewiston, Charlotte, Port
Charlotte, Lemon Bay, North Port,
DeSoto, Hardee and Moore Haven.
Teams representing the Central area are
Sebring, Lake Placid, Avon Park, Winter
Haven, Lake Wales, Lake Region, Frost-
proof, Bartow and Lakeland Christian.
Area players in the game are Diante
Baker, Montel Collins and Jeremy Man-
ning from Bartow High; Eddie Chadwick,
Antwan Hadley, Rolan Milligan, Ladaran
Wilson and Marvin Wright from Lake
Wales-High School; and Tyron Hamilton,
Zach Jenkins, Dakota McCullers and Jake
Smith from Frostproof.
Tickets are $10 and parking is $5.

Citrus growers explore USDA research lab


By SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
SH OFFMAN@ SUN-HERALD.COM
FORT PIERCE The Peace
River Valley Citrus Growers re-
cently toured the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture's Horti-
cultural Research labs in Fort
Pierce to learn more about the
studies being done to help the
grove manager.
One of 100 research fa-
cilities across the country,
the Fort Pierce Agricultural
Research Service lab leads
in citrus research. In two
85,000-square-foot buildings,
30 research labs look at every-
thing from insect mouth parts
to plant genetics to find ways
to reduce pests and improve
fruit quality.
Laboratory Director Calvin
Arnold said, "Sixty percent of
the work done at this lab fo-
cuses on citrus. With an annu-
al budget of $20 million, $13
million is spent on citrus, and
$11 million of that is on HLB
(citrus greening disease)."
"So more than half the total
budget is for HLB."
The work done here is
complex. In Paul Robbins' lab,
for instance, researchers are
working with the psyllid fly
pheromone a chemical that
gives off a scent that attracts
male flies to females. Formu-
lated to be applied in groves,
"the idea is to put so much of
it in the grove that male flies
can't find the females," Rob-
bins said. If mating fails, the
flies don't lay eggs and there
is no next generation. Con- ,
trolling psyllids is one key to
eliminating greening because
the fruit-fly-sized insects
carry the bacteria that cause
greening.
Another angle of attack
involves crippling the flies'
feeding mechanism. The
fly's proboscis is like a drill-
ing tube: a firm outer tube is
needed to breach the plant
tissue and get down to the
juicy part on which flies feed.
As they dine, the flies inject
some bacteria, the real culprit
in greening. But if they can't
drill into the plant, they can't
feed and, hence, they can't in-
ject the bacteria. Bob Shatters'
research is looking at ways to
cripple the feeding process.
Wayne Hunter is conducting
genetics research. Using de-
signer RNA to deliver species-
specific genes, scientists are
looking for ways to inter-
rupt the pest's life cycle, for
instance, by preventing them
from laying eggs. Genetics
allow researchers to target a

Researcher Anna Sara Hill passes around small containers in which larval
stages of psyllid flies grow. Members of the Peace River Valley Citrus Growers
Association had a guided tour of the USDA Horticultural Research Labs in Fort
Pierce last week.


The proboscis of a psyllid fly looks
monstrous under a microscope,
where researchers can test ways to
prevent the pest from feeding on
citrus plants.
specific species while leaving
others unaffected.
Down the hall, Randy Niedz
is developing stronger, more
vigorous varieties of plants
through genetics. His lab is
working on ways to make a
citrus plant resist diseases
while producing fruit that still
pleases consumers.
Duan Yong Ping is learning
how altering a virus that re-
sides inside the bacteria that
cause greening can weaken
the bacteria. Applying high
temperatures that stress the
virus can make the bacteria
unable to complete the cycle
that causes greening.
Studying all these control
methods means the research-
ers must have a steady supply
of insects to test, in all stages
of their life cycles. That is the
role of the lab's Insectarium,
where varieties of psyllid flies,
weevils and other six-legged
pests are carefully grown by
the thousands, to be ready
whenever another lab needs
them.


Lab researchers prepare test plants at the USDA's Agricultural Research
Service lab in a quest for more vigorous, disease-resistant plants which will
produce delicious fruit. The Peace River Valley Citrus Growers Association
toured the USDA-ARS lab last week to learn about the latest research.

For the better part of a day,
PRVCGA members toured the
labs, asking probing questions
of white-coated scientists to
understand how this research
will ultimately help them grow
stronger, better fruit. Their-
livelihoods depend on being
able to control pests and raise
vigorous plants. Hence, they
must learn what these sci-
entists are doing at almost a
Ph.D. level.
Their survival, and that of
Florida's citrus industry,
depends on it.


Researcher Paul Robbins explains
how a product called SPLAT may help
control psyllid flies by mimicking the
scent of female flies. In a cloud of the
substance, males can't distinguish
the real females from the copycat
odor; hence, mating does not occur.

facility in Fort Pierce, hybrids and
grafts are tested to see how well
they perform. Plants may be selected
for quality of fruit, resistance to
disease or vigor in the grove.

Citrus executive director position at three candidates


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

It's down to three people from the
original list of 114. And, the three can-
didates for the executive director's
position at the Florida Department
of Citrus will be interviewed by the
search committee Friday.
The board selected the three can-
didates Nov. 28 from a group of 11
picked by the Anchor Planning Group,
a search firm the department hired.
Now the six people on the committee
will interview them individually on
Friday and choose a new executive


director at a meeting Friday, Dec. 16.
That meeting is at 605 W. Main St.,
Bartow.
Then at its regular meeting on
Dec. 21 the new candidate will have to
be ratified by the Florida Citrus Board.
But that doesn't mean the new can-
didate is permanent yet. Under rules
passed by the Florida Legislature last
year the executive director's position
has to be confirmed by the Florida
Senate. The Senate comes into session
on Jan. 10.
"The person could start before the
confirmation," acting executive director
Debra Funkhouser said.


The three to be interviewed Friday
are:
Douglas R. Ackerman of Bartow is a
category marketing manager for Publix
Super Markets, Inc. He has been with
that company since 2005. His experi-
ence is in retail, packaged goods and
integrated marketing communications.
He graduated from the University of
Tampa's Executive MBA program this
year.
Charles E. Powell from Lake Forest,
Ill. He is a marketing and strategic man-
agement consultant who has worked in
consumer products. He developed the
"Got Milk" campaign while he was with


Chicago's Dairy Management, Inc.
Gregory M. Venner from Newburgh,
Ind., is executive vice president with
Smart Balance. The company focuses
on milks and spreads. His background
includes 20 years of marketing. He was
previously senior vice president with
the Bristol-Myers Squibb pharmaceuti-
cals company.
The new executive director will
replace Ken Keck who resigned Aug. 3.
Funkhouser has-been acting executive
director since his absence. Keck had
been working as a consultant to the de-
partment since he left, but that ended
the first week of November.

FROM THE ST. PETERSBURG TIMES
In the latest attempt to crack down on
Florida's pain pill epidemic, CVS phar-
macies have told some doctors that they
no longer will fill their prescriptions for
widely-abused narcotic medications.
"CVS Pharmacy Inc. has become
increasingly concerned with escalating
reports of prescription drug abuse in
Florida, especially oxycodone abuse,"
read the letter sent to a Florida pain
specialist.
"We regret any inconvenience that
this action may cause. However, we take
our compliance obligations seriously
and find it necessary to take this action
at this time," the letter concludes.
While it's unclear how many doctors
have received similar notices, the pain
management community is buzzing
about the development. The Florida
Academy of Pain Medicine sent out an
email alert with the letter that was sent
to a Central Florida physician, one of its
members, blacking out his name.
"I don't want to be subject to the
scrutiny of CVS," said Dr. Jeffrey Zipper,
chairman of the academy's medical af-
fairs committee. "They've made a busi-
ness decision, and from my perspective,
I'm going to make a business decision to
send my patients elsewhere."
In the email alert, he informed col-
leagues that CVS appears to "have
initiated an internal program where
they are profiling physicians' controlled
substance prescribing habits and pos-
sibly their patients' prescriptions," wrote
Zipper, a Delray Beach physician and
CEO of the National Pain Institute, which
has seven locations across Florida.
He said the academy member receiv-
ing the CVS notice had extensive training
in pain management and had never been
disciplined by state medical regulators,
but did not wish to be identified.


In response to questions from The
Times, CVS said in a statement that a
"small" number of Florida physicians
recently received the notification.
The corporation also said it had noti-
fied the U.S. Drug Enforcement Admin-
istration of its actions but declined to
comment further.
CVS customers are being told about
the move when they see their phar-
macists. The doctors' prescriptions for
other kinds of drugs still will be filled at
CVS, a company spokesman said.
Some CVS pharmacies appear to be
flagging prescriptions for a specific
combination of medications with
high potential for abuse -
oxycodone, Xanax and Soma, said
Ashley VanDercar, attorney and risk
manager at the Tampa Pain Clinic.
The trio of a narcotic pain reliever, an
antianxiety medication and a muscle
relaxant has been widely prescribed
at pill mills, noted VanDercar, whose
clinic hasn't been the target of any CVS
action.
The CVS effort to target certain physi-
cians appears to be unique among
pharmacies, although pharmacists
are professionally obligated not to fill
prescriptions they find questionable,
according to the state Department of
Health.
The Florida Pharmacy Association
was unaware of any other efforts like
CVS's. But the pharmacists it represents
have become increasingly cautious
about filling prescriptions for medica-
tions now responsible for more than
seven overdose deaths a day, more than
from heroin and cocaine combined.
Some pain management providers
say the crackdown has gone too far. "It's
pretty damning of CVS to be sending
out a letter like that," said Paul Sloan,
who owns pain clinics in Venice and
Fort Myers.


Skip a week of watering


CVS won't fill all

pain pill prescriptions


! .. .A J' .-) ..S^ --


The Southwest Florida Water Man-
agement District is reminding resi-
dents who irrigate their lawns to skip
a week or more of watering during the
cooler months of December, January
and February.
According to research by the Univer-
sity of Florida, grass doesn't need to
be watered as often during the cooler
months. One-half to three-quarters
of an inch of water every 10-14 days
is sufficient. In fact, if your lawn has
received any significant rainfall, then
you can turn off your irrigation system
and operate it manually as needed.
"Overwatering can encourage pests
and disease in your lawn," said Sylvia
Durell, Florida-Friendly Landscaping
project manager. "Too much irriga-
tion can also make lawns less able to
survive droughts."
Skipping a week of watering is as
easy as off for residents with irrigation
timers.
"Turn the timer to 'off' for the week
that you want to skip, and 'on' for the
week that you want to water," said
Durell.
You can determine when your grass
needs water when:
Grass blades are folded in half
lengthwise on at least one-third of
your yard. *
Grass blades appear blue-gray.

Grass blades do not spring back,
leaving footprints on the lawn for sev-
eral minutes after walking on it.
Watering only every other week
at most during the winter will help
conserve drinking water supplies that
the public needs for critical uses dur-
ing the dry season. In fact, if everyone
skipped one week of irrigation this
season, it could save an estimated 1.9
billion gallons of water.
Most of the region experienced a
disappointing summer rainy season.
In addition to entering the dry sea-
son, drier-than-normal conditions are
expected to continue through next
spring. All 16 counties within the Dis-
trict are under a Phase I water short-
age alert. Those 16 counties it covers
includes parts of Levy, Marion, Sumter,

Try getting food past these gums


For the first time, American and Aus-
tralian researchers have shown that a
hormone involved in telling people when
they feel "full" from eating can be delivered
into the bloodstream orally
So what's the value of an edible
hormone?
The scientists suggest it might be pos-
sible to stick the hormone in a stick of
gum, which would make it easier to avoid
over-stuffing your face by first stuffing
your mouth with hormone-laced gum.
The hormone in question is called
human PYY, part of the body's chemi-
cal system for regulating appetite and
energy. When people eat, PYY is released
into the bloodstream. The more food
consumed, the more PYY released until
the "full" signal registers. Past studies
have shown that people who are obese
have lower concentrations of PYY in their
bloodstream, both when fasting and after
eating than their non-obese counterparts.
"PYY is an appetite-suppressing
hormone," said Syracuse University
chemist Robert Doyle. "But, when taken
orally, the hormone is destroyed in
the stomach and that which isn't de-
stroyed has difficulty crossing into the


WELL NEWS
Scott LaFee


bloodstream through the intestines."
Doyle and colleagues solved this di-
lemma by disguising the hormone using
the vitamin B12. Now, they report, the
ingested hormone gets into the blood-
stream in significant amounts. The next
step is to figure out how to make a chew-
ing gum with it, presumably one that
keeps your breath hormone-y fresh.

Body of knowledge
One-quarter of the 206 bones in the hu-
man body are located in the feet.

Get me that. Stat!
A 2010 study by the National Institute
of Child Health and Human Development
and the National Institute of Diabetes and
Digestive and Kidney Diseases found that
American adults, on average, put on one
additional pound of weight during the
holidays.


It's not a lot perhaps, but the study
also concluded that most Americans
don't burn off the added pound, allow-
ing the weight to largely accumulate
over the years.

Treatment of the infertility due to polysystic ovary syndrome


DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am in need
of any information on how a woman
with polycystic ovary syndrome can
become pregnant. This information is
for my 29-year-old niece, now living in
Hungary, who is desperate to have a
child. She is under the care of a gyne-
cologist who is also a fertility specialist.
She feels the doctors in North America
are more advanced and would like a
second opinion. M.H.
ANSWER: Polycystic ovary syndrome,
PCOS, has come a long way since Drs.
Irving Stein and Michael Leventhal first
described it in 1935. Their criteria for
making the diagnosis were obesity, loss
of menstrual periods, enlarged ovaries
studded with many cysts and infertility.
Now the diagnosis rests on demonstrating
an overproduction of male hormones
(hyperandrogenism). The consequences
of that are many. Periods decrease or stop.
Ovulation stops. Acne, facial hair and
loss of scalp hair are other signs. Infer-
tility is common. Obesity is frequently
present. Insulin resistance the inability
of insulin to control blood sugar is
another important sign of the syndrome.
A woman might have no visible signs of
the illness but still have it. She might be

like your niece, whose greatest problem is
the inability to become pregnant.
Since your niece is interested in having
a child, I will talk only of the treatment for
infertility.
If your niece is overweight, weight
loss is the first approach in her quest
to become pregnant. If that isn't her
problem, medicines often can induce
pregnancy. Clomiphene (Clomid)
jump-starts the secretion of hormones
that are a prerequisite for ovulation
and pregnancy. Has she tried it? Some-
times it's combined with metformin,
a diabetes medicine that resolves the
issue of insulin-resistance and its influ-
ence on infertility. Metformin, in fact,
sometimes is prescribed as a single
medicine for this problem.


Since she is seeing a fertility
specialist, she has probably discussed
in-vitro fertilization. If she hasn't, she
might want to broach that treatment.
Your niece needs not be leery of medical
practice in Hungary. Hungarian doctors are
respected throughout the world. Important
medical discoveries were made there.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have never
seen you write about scar tissue. My
life has been greatly affected by it. I
have had to have two colon resections
because of scar tissue in my abdomen.
All of this was due to a car accident. You
can die from scar tissue. I wonder about
people who have unnecessary surgeries.
It must be a problem for them. G.M.
ANSWER: I've written about adhe-
sions. They're the scar tissue you are
talking about. They're thin or thick
broad bands of scar tissue that spring
up in the abdomen after trauma,
including the trauma of surgery. Your
auto accident prompted their forma-
tion. Abdominal surgery because
organs are displaced or blood seeps
into the abdominal cavity or tissues are
jostled during the operation fosters
the growth of adhesions. They can wrap
around the intestines and obstruct the


passage of food through them. If the
obstruction is complete, then surgery
is usually the best way to free the
obstructed intestine.
Laparoscopic surgery, when possible,
lessens the chance of adhesion forma-
tion. A viewing scope is inserted into
the abdominal cavity through a small
incision, and instruments are passed
through equally small incisions. Less
trauma results. Often, this process is
used for removing adhesions.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What are the
results so far with PinPointe laser treat-
ment for toenail fungus? I want to have
it done, but insurance won't cover it. Is
it worth the gamble for me? D.E
ANSWER: With PinPointe FootLaser
treatment, a laser beam is directed in
such a way that it is supposed to elimi-
nate the toenail fungus without hurting
surrounding tissue.
This a fairly new procedure. The
number of expert-reviewed reports is
few. The Food and Drug Administration
has not given a seal of approval to it yet.
Personally, since it is expensive and is
new, I would wait until more informa-
tion is available to support its effective-
ness and safety.

Wholesome ho


treats


Scrumptious holiday treats can be
enjoyed without having to punch
new holes in our belts afterward. A
wide variety of delicious appetizers and
desserts made with wholesome ingre-
dients present better options. Many of
them include little or no health-robbers,
such as loads of sugar, butter, mayo,
cream and other co-conspirators.
However, even festive fare made with
nutritious ingredients can adversely
affect health and weight if we overin-
dulge. There is no substitute for the
post-holiday feeling of having enjoyed
celebratory cuisine, while at the same
time exercising self-restraint and mind-
ing our health. One helping per event
is a better choice than two or three ...
Please note: one helping is not equal in
size to the Goodyear blimp.
With Thanksgiving behind us, it's on
to Hanukkah/Christmas, New Year's
and, last but not least, the Super Bowl.
Make appetizers from vegetables (Brus-
chetta, tapenade, eggplant, or beans).
Bake fruit and/or nut cookies, bars,
and cobblers with whole wheat flour
and little or no sugar or butter. Fresh or
frozen fruit is by far superior to canned
ones. Sweeteners may include chopped
dried fruit, honey, turbinado sugar, or
light brown sugar, all in moderation.
Succulent fruit salads are another op-
tion. Many Mexican, Mediterranean,
and vegetarian dishes offer a vast vari-
ety of healthy, mouth-watering "foods
for feast."
Great news: We live in a democracy
where we can choose what and how
much we put into our mouths. So join
the upper crust; those who refuse to be
members of the "eat-it-today-wear-it-
tomorrow" club. Below are some recipes

FEELING



Gluten-free diet craze gaining popularity


By DIANE NICHOLS
DNICHOLS@POLKCOUNTYD)MOCRAT.COM
Imagine walking through the bakery at
your local supermarket surrounded by
the aroma of freshly-baked breads, pies
and cakes, and not being able to indulge
because every delicious goody in sight is
your body's enemy. No, it's not the carbs
or the fat or even the sugar for nearly
2 million people, the bad boy is now a
thing called glen
Gluten is most often found in wheat,
barley and rye, and for those who are "
sensitive to it or suffer from celiac dis-
ease, it can cause life-altering symptoms
such as abdominal bloating and pain,
chronic diarrhea, vomiting, constipation
and weight loss.
A gluten-free diet is the only answer to
eliminating such discomfort and calls for
drastic changes not only for the individ-
ual suffering from the intolerance, but
for friends and family who interact with '
them, as well.
Lois Drake, who resides in Lakeland,
is a mother of two sons, a 5-year-old
and a 7-year-old. All three suffer from
gluten intolerance, yet Drake's husband
does not. At first, they had different
menus and kept a bread cupboard for
her husband's bakery goods and boxed
crackers, but soon found out how easily
cross-contamination can happen.
"The boys and I suddenly began having
stomach issues again even though we
were sticking diligently to our gluten-free
diet," said Drake. "We finally figured out
that we had been sharing a toaster with
my husband and the crumbs from his
toast and bagels had contaminated our
gluten-free bread when we made toast.
Even sharing a cutting board or utensils
can be very risky for those who react to
gluten, so we decided it would be safer if
my husband ate gluten-free, too. It gets
tricky, especially when you want to eat
out or visit someone else's house."
It is estimated that up to 40 percent of
our population is gluten-sensitive while
celiac disease afflicts more than 1 per-
cent. Although stomach issues are a very


common symptom of a body's inability to
process gluten, there are more than 100
symptoms associated with gluten intol-
erance including fatigue, mouth sores,
depression and muscle weakness. To con-
firm a diagnosis of celiac disease a specific
antibody blood test may be performed
by a physician. Some people who test
negative still have chosen to go off gluten
and report a marked improvement in their
health, including those suffering from
such autoimmune diseases such as lupus
and children who have autism.
Because gluten acts as a toxin for many
people, slowly eroding and damaging the
small intestine, healing is a slow process,
making the switch to a gluten-free lifestyle
a permanent commitment.

Demand skyrocketing
The notion that you can no longer eat
as you please and have to dissect labels
as you go down the grocery aisle can be
a huge blow. Initially, celiac patients and
those with gluten intolerance can expe-
rience depression and feel as if there is
nothing safe to eat. Fortunately, there are
many books, blogs, and support groups
to help make the adjustment easier and
offer food and recipe ideas. Many grocery
stores, such as Walmart, Winn Dixie and
Publix, are now stocking their shelves with
gluten-free foods as the demand has liter-
ally skyrocketed.
Several restaurants have found the same
demand and have jumped on board, of-
fering patrons gluten-free menus. Even
fast-food restaurants such as Wendy's,
McDonald's, Burger King, Dairy Queen
and Arby's offer gluten-free items if you ask
for selections when you arrive or prepare
beforehand by going to their online menu.
Jason Ottinger, the grocery manager for
Publix in the Golden Gate Shopping Cen-
ter in Bartow, has seen a huge increase in
demand for gluten-free foods and there's
no slowing down in sight.
"Over the last year and a half, we have
had a lot of our customers requesting glu-
ten-free foods due to celiac disease," said
Ottinger. 'A lot of other people have gluten

Even Betty Crocker has gone gluten-free. More and more food companies are coming out with
gluten-free products to meet the demand, said Jason Ottinger, the grocery manager at Publix in
Bartow. The shelves show gluten-free products with a GF circle next to the price.


allergies and are sensitive to it, so we've
responded by supplying more gluten-free
items and labeling them on the shelves to
make them more prominent and easily
accessible to this growing clientele.
"Food companies are responding to the
demand, making more and more items
gluten-free, which gives those shoppers
more choices than they had before. We're
definitely keeping up with it."
Someof the biggest obstacles for some-
one avoiding gluten are family gatherings
and holidays. With Christmas weeks away,
those unable to eat anything with gluten
may feel like sitting in the comer while
family, friends and loved ones dig in to
the fruitcakes, cookies and fudge. It can
be awkward and celiacs do need to have a
thick skin when they get looks of confu-
sion and pity after they politely decline
a feast fit for a queen, stating they are on
a special diet. The key is to prepare in
advance for visiting and parties by making
your own gluten-free food to take along.
"We've learned to bring our own dishes
and treats, which are also perfectly fine
for others to enjoy, too," said Drake. "Last
Christmas I made gluten-free peanut
butter cookies with chocolate drizzle and
they were a huge hit. It does take some
planning and preparation, but with so


many recipes and gluten-free options for
every meal as well as snacks and desserts,
holiday gatherings don't have to be stress-
ful. We arrive with our creative gluten-free
dishes and even bring our own plastic
utensils to avoid cross contamination. It's
awkward at first, but then it just becomes
a lifestyle."
Examples of foods that are safe for
gluten-intolerant people are fresh
fruits and vegetables, natural chicken,
turkey and ham, natural cheeses and
nuts. Christmas meals can be festive by
indulging in orange juice and cham-
pagne, smoked salmon and scrambled
eggs. An elegant holiday dinner can still
provide all the trimmings by making
roast turkey with mashed potatoes,
broccoli florets with carrots and peas,
gluten-free stuffing, gluten-free gravy,
cranberry sauce and gluten-free apple
spice cake for dessert. Even eggnog is
gluten-free most of the time, but make
sure to check ingredients for wheat.
Organic Valley, Trader Joe's and Silk Nog
are some of the most popular gluten-
free selections in grocery stores this
time of year.

Lipitor is going generic, but station will still be around


By IRENE MAHER
ST. PETERSBURG TIMES

If you are among the nearly 10 million
Americans who take the popular choles-
terol-lowering drug Lipitor, get ready to
save some money.
The U.S. patent on Lipitor expired
last week, allowing a generic version
to be sold under its chemical name,
atorvastatin. The look of the pills their
size, shape, markings and color may
*also change, but so will the price. Insur-
ance co-pays for the generic version are
expected to drop from $30 to $50 per
prescription to $3 to $10.
Without insurance, Lipitor, the world's
largest selling drug, costs $115 to $160 a-
month, depending on dosage. Atorvas-
tatin should cost 30 to 50 percent less.
And at least for a while, you may pay
the cheaper price while still getting the
brand name. In an unusual move, drug-
maker Pfizer, eager to maintain brand
loyalty to its most profitable product,
is devising discounts and incentives
that could keep the brand-name drug
as cheap as generics for the next six
months.
"It has been a tremendously success-
ful product; it made $100 billion for
Pfizer," said Dr. John Santa, director of
the Consumer Reports Health Ratings
Center, a research division of Consumer
Reports magazine. "We now enter the
phase where consumers get some return
on their investment. It's their time to
benefit."
Some insurance plans have tempo-
rarily arranged to continue patients on
brand-name Lipitor at the generic price,
while others are moving patients imme-
diately to the generic version.
Lipitor has long been the first drug of
choice for treating patients with seriously


high LDL cholesterol and a history of
heart attack or acute heart disease.
"We use Lipitor in patients who need a
30 percent or greater reduction in LDL,"
said Dr. Charles Lambert, medical direc-
tor of Florida Hospital Pepin Heart Insti-
tute in Tampa and professor of medicine
at the University of Florida. "But you
can use alternative stations in most other
patients, including generics."
Generic drugs must contain the same
key ingredients as the brand-name drug,
but the appearance and some inactive
ingredients may be different.
Santa hopes that Lipitor's going
generic will loosen Pfizer's hold on the
station market.
"We hope that this is the end of all
the marketing around Lipitor and that
consumers and physicians will be more
open to the evidence we've been point-
ing to for years," said Santa.
"For the vast majority of people on
a station, Lipitor is no better than other
generic stations that have been available
for years for about $4 a month. They are
just as good as Lipitor for
90 percent of people on a station "
Less costly alternatives include lovas-
tatin, pravastatin and simvastatin, but
they may only be appropriate for pa-
tients whose LDL cholesterol is not high.
Will the generic version of Lipitor work
as well as the original? Lambert said that
most of the time, there is no difference.
"Concern arises, however, when produc-
tion goes overseas, where manufacturing
facilities are not under the direct control
of the FDA. Based on past experience,
that's a real concern."
Initially, two drugmakers will produce
generic Lipitor: Watson Pharmaceuticals
of New Jersey and Ranbaxy Laboratories
in India.
Limited generic competition is

permitted in the first six months after
a drug's patent expires. After May 2012,
other generic versions of Lipitor are
expected to hit the market, which may
lower prices even further.

Florida health choices to offer plans next summer


By JIM SAUNDERS
THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA
Hatched in 2008 when Marco Ru-
bio held power in the state Capitol,
the Florida Health Choices program
expects to start offering health-
insurance plans to small businesses
in July 2012.
Chairman Aaron Bean on Friday
acknowledged frustrations with
the pace of Florida Health Choices,
which supporters have long touted
as a new type of "marketplace" for
buying health coverage. But he also
said officials want to make sure it is
developed correctly.
"We're building this from abso-
lute scratch," said Bean, a former
Republican House member from
Fernandina Beach. "We're building a
new marketplace."
The Florida Health Choices board
met Friday and continued trying
to resolve issues needed to move
forward. The latest: a dispute with
a key contractor about loading
information into an online por-
tal that will serve as the program's
backbone.
Florida Health Choices said earlier
this year that it hoped to start of-
fering coverage in 2011. But under
the latest timeline, employees of
small businesses would be able to
start enrolling in insurance plans in
May and June, with coverage taking
effect in July.
Nevertheless, Bean pointed to
what he indicated are encourag-
ing signs. As an example, 11 health
plans including major insurers
such as Aetna, Blue Cross and Blue


Shield of Florida and UnitedHealth-
care have indicated interest in
taking part.
"We have big companies, we have
small companies, we have compa-
nies all over the state," Bean said.
Lawmakers approved creating
Florida Health Choices in 2008
when Rubio, now a U.S. senator and
national political figure, served as
state House speaker. The basic con-
cept is to create an online market
that will allow people to shop for
coverage with more flexibility than
in the traditional insurance system.
But some critics have long ques-
tioned the program because they
fear it will lead to people buying
inadequate health coverage.
Initially, Florida Health Choices
would be available to businesses
with four to 50 employees and
would offer coverage in the small-
group insurance market. After
businesses sign up, their employees
would be able to choose among dif-
ferent coverage plans.
In the future, Florida Health
Choices would also be available
to businesses with fewer than four
employees. Also, it would offer types
of health coverage that are not tra-
ditional insurance, such as allowing
people to buy certain amounts of
visits to doctors or clinics.
Parts of the insurance industry
have closely followed the develop-
ment of Florida Health Choices,
with Florida Association of Health
Plans President Michael Garner
serving as chairman of a "vendor
steering committee."
Also, insurance agents have


worked to make sure they don't get
left out when people start buying
coverage through Florida Health
Choices.
"We're very anxious to see what
the portal looks like and how it
works," Tim Meenan, a lobbyist for
the National Association of Insur-
ance and Financial Advisors-Florida,
said during the board meeting
Friday.
Even if Florida Health Choices
begins operating in July, however,
it could face questions because of
the 2010 federal health overhaul.
That law which Florida and other
states are challenging in the U.S.
Supreme Court requires each


state to have a health insurance "ex-
change," which is a similar concept
to Florida Health Choices.
Florida Republican leaders, who
adamantly oppose the federal
health law championed by Presi-
dent Obama, have refused to create
an exchange. But it is unclear how
Florida will comply with the ex-
change requirement if the Supreme
Court upholds the 2010 law.
Florida Health Choices officials
are trying to distance themselves
from the federal requirement.
"We're not an Obamacare ex-
change," said Bean, who plans to
run for a Northeast Florida Senate
seat in 2012.

Champs at Fighting Strokes


Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center Sebring is
Now a Designated Primary Stroke Center

We are the only certified Primary Stroke Center in the Heartland. When a stroke occurs, time is of the
essence. Working closely with EMS, our Emergency Department helps to identify and begin treating
stroke patients before they arrive, because every minute can make a difference.


It is important to understand warning signs.

The symptoms of a stroke include: sudden weakness or numbness of the face, arm or leg, sudden trouble speaking
or understanding conversation, sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes, sudden trouble walking, dizziness, or
loss of balance or coordination, and/or sudden severe headache with no known cause.

Ifyou experience any of these symptoms, call 9-1-1, and ask to be taken to Florida Hospital.
