City getting closer to having its own sign

By BRIAN ACKLEY
NEWS @ FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
The City of Frostproof is one step
closer to having it's own $33,000 elec- ,
tronic sign, although not everyone is
happy about it.
By a 3-1 vote Monday night, the city
council approved amendments to the 1 "
city land code that would allow the sign
to be placed in the downtown business lV 34
district to help disseminate city infor- r.ie 1
mation and promote local events. u
The measure was unanimously rec- A
ommended for approval by the Plan-
ning and Zoning Board in a meeting
held just prior to the council session.
Many members of both boards .,.- .. .. -..
gathered at 5:30 Monday for a dem-
onstration of the approximately 30 ,4
square-foot board which can generate .
full color images.
Council member Anne Dickinson .-:- -
voted against the code change propos- .A .
al. She has consistently been against
the sign, largely because of its price, .
since the idea first came up during '
budget workshops this summer. In the -
end, city officials agreed at that time, by PHOTO BY BRIAN ACKLEY
a 4-1 vote, to leave $35,000 in this year's
Frostproof Mayor Kay Hutzelman, left, and Planning and Zoning Board Chairman Jeff Futral, right, discuss information related to an electronic sign
SIGN I 14A that was being demonstrated outside city hall Monday. They are chatting with Jim Crum of Daktronics, makers of the board.


Second local man

isseriously injured in

early-morning accident

A Frsotproof man lost his life, and a second was
seriously injured, following an early morning crash on
State Road 60 west of Lake Wales last week.
Polk County Sheriff's Office Traffic Homicide depu-
ties located the semi-tractor trailer truck involved in a
fatal crash on Thursday, Dec. 15.
According to reports, Jesus Marti, 54, of 13326
Prestwick Drive, Riverview, has been identified as the
driver of the truck which left the scene. The truck is a
1998 Volvo Tractor with a 1983 Hardee Dump Trailer.
Marti and the truck were located in Mulberry at ap-
proximately 8 a.m., Friday, Dec. 16, 2011.
According to the sheriff's office, at approximately
4:15 am last Thursday on State Road 60, West of Lake
Wales Road, Lake Wales, there was a two vehicle col-


lision involving a 2002, silver KIA Sportage SUV and
what was described as a dump style semi-tractor
trailer truck.
Thirty-three-year-old Adam Walker of Frostproof
died at the scene. Also injured was 33-year-old Heath
Whitaker, also of Frostproof. Whitaker was originally
transported to Lake Wales Hospital, but later trans-
ferred to Lakeland Regional Medical Center where he
is listed in serious condition.
Through their investigation, PCSO Traffic Homicide
deputies determined that the SUV had been observed
driving erratically between Bartow and Lake Wales.
Traffic on SR 60 had backed up for a train that had
passed when a semi tractor-trailer truck changed lanes
from the outside lane to the inside lane and the SUV
rear-ended the "suspect" semi which was stopping for
the train.
Another truck, or third vehicle, changed lanes to avoid
the crash. The suspect vehicle did not suddenly change
lanes in front of the SUV before the crash, police said.
Neither of the SUV occupants was wearing a seat
belt.
Charges are pending in this ongoing investigation.


Bartow man

NEWS @FORTMEADELEADER.COM
SQuestions about Ackerman may come up,
Page 1B
Almost from the time the meeting opened last Fri-
day it seemed apparent that Bartow resident Douglas
R. Ackerman was going to be hired as the executive
director of the Florida Department of Citrus.
"During my interview with him he said, 'I'm your
worst enemy. My job is to put Sunny Delight and
other sugar products with the orange juice,"' commit-
tee member Martin McKenna said about the market-
ing manager at Publix. "I feel like he gets it."
McKenna began the meeting singling out his posi-
tive thoughts on Ackerman, though that feeling wasn't
shared by all the members of the citrus commission
selection committee. The vote to recommend him to
the Florida Citrus Commission was 4-2, with Michael
J. Garavaglia Jr. and MichaelW. Haycock dissenting.

Polk County teachers


to get raises next year


ByJEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@ ( POLKCOUNIY1YD1EMOCRAT.COM
After months of negotiation edu-
cators in Polk County got an early
Christmas present as a tentative salary
agreement was met this week.
The Polk Education Association
and the Polk County School Board
reached agreement and both sides left
the room Tuesday night with warm
feelings about the future in their
relationship.
"We are pleased for two reasons,"
said Marianne Capoziello, the presi-
dent of PEA. "The teachers and sup-
port (staff) get a STEP raise and there
was a more open communication."
Superintendent Sherrie Nickell was
also happy with the concerted effort
to reach an agreement. "This agree-
ment on salaries is significant, and
it was made possible by the ongoing
cooperation of the Polk Education
Association, the strong support of the
members of the School Board and the
hard work of the District's negotiating
team," she said.
It is the first pay increase for teach-
ers in Polk County since February
2010. The increase covers teachers,
para educators and support staff.
Some highlights of the agreement
was a STEP increase retroactive to
July 1, 2011 for all eligible employees
of the PEA. Also $500 will be added to
employees who are at the top of the
STEP scale and were not eligible for
any more pay increases. Teacher train-
ing pay, that is pay for work done out-
side the classroom, will increase from


$8.50 per hour to $18.09. Longevity
supplements for eligible para educator
and ESP employees will be reinstated
retroactive to July 1, 2011, which will
provide those people reaching the 15-
year service milestone and increments
of five years after.
In August 2010 the school board had
imposed a freeze on teacher raises cit-
ing the tough economic times and to
follow that the PEA filed an Unfair La-
bor Practice over the changes and an
impasse in bargaining., but with the
newfound communication, Capoziello
hopes for a new relationship in the
future. Both sides cited a transparency
in Tuesday's negotiation.
Even with the new salaries Polk
County teachers earn less than others
around the state. Currently, she said
teachers here are being lost to Hill-
sborough, Pinellas, Orange, Osceola
and Seminole counties because the
pay there is higher.
"We're not competitive with sur-
rounding counties and they draw
Polk teachers away," she said. "They
earn more and these are very difficult
economic times. "We have to look at
the school board budget early and not
look at salaries as an afterthought."
That thought could work from the
school board's side as well, as Nickell
praised both sides for working togeth-
er to.reach this pact.
Only in the proposed stage, the next
thing that has to happen is for the
PEA's union members to approve the
agreement which will likely come next
month.

VIEWPOINT


Legislature she

One of the most overused phrases in govern-
ment is "expand the tax base." Typically the
phrase is linked with economic development ini-
tiatives. Adding new businesses does expand the
tax base, so this cliche like most is true and until
recently doing so was considered by people of all
political persuasions to be a good thing. Not in
the mind of at least some Republican legislators
who like nothing better than micromanaging
their communities' governments from Tallahas-
see. We feel like a broken record by repeating
this observation, but if legislators want to run
counties and cities or schools for that mat-
ter they should run for seats on their county
commission, city council or school board.
The latest GOP Tallahassee tinkering come
courtesy of two bills one filed in the state
House of Representatives, the other in the state
Senate to be considered in the upcoming
legislative session would repeal the authority cit-
ies and counties now have to levy local business
taxes. Local government experts and advocates


)uld focus on sta

Our Viewpoint
immediately decried the bills as yet another at-
tack on home rule and fear the proposal is only
the first round of cuts aimed at city and county
revenue generated from occupational licenses,
permits and franchise fees. Local governments
would lose $156.4 million a year beginning in
2012, if the measure were to pass.
Bob Lee, executive director of the Center for
Florida Local Government Excellence at Florida
State University, called the bills the latest in a
long line of unfunded mandates he counted
nearly 2,000 stretching back to 1968. He told
the Naples Daily News the change would have
"no impact" on that state budget, but would sap
even more revenue from falling local budgets.
The bill faced strong headwinds after failing
to get to the House floor for a vote during this
year's session and has not even received a com-
mittee hearing so far for the January session.
He said the Florida Association of Counties and


ite government
the Florida League of Cities are lobbying heavily
against the bill.
A separate business tax bill has been filed that
we do support, which would exempt individual
real estate agents from paying the business tax
their employer must pay. The bill would specify
that an "individual licensed and operating as
broker associate or sales associate is not re-
quired to apply.for exemption from local busi-
ness tax." The issue came up earlier this year
when the Attorney General's office issued an
opinion stating such individuals were not ex-
empt from the tax.
A better bill for the Legislature to take up
would be one limiting the number of bills it can
consider each session. That would effectively
prevent busybodies with bad ideas from using
up their quota meddling in local government
and focus on what voters sent them to do in
Tallahassee, such as running an effective and
efficient state government for the benefit of its
citizens instead of trying to dismantle it.


CW: Reliving our heritage


Colonial Williamsburg preserves a
culture of American heritage during
the time when our fledgling nation
was casting off its bonds with England
and rejecting political, economic, and
religious repression from the Mother
Country.
As in the Civil War nearly a century
later, it must have been difficult for the
Colonials to choose between historic
ties and an uncertain future.
Patrick Henry was not exaggerating
when he declared that the choice was
between liberty and death.

Mary and I have visited CW a couple
of times, but never during the Christ-
mas season, when the community goes
all out with decorations.
(Locals refer to Colonial Williams-
burg as CW to distinguish between that
preserved and restored Colonial era
community and the rest of the modern
day city of Williamsburg.) We spent last
week in CW, celebrating Mary's birthday
and soaking up culture.
Having chosen to travel by train, we
chartered a transfer service to take us
from the Richmond Amtrak station to
the Williamsburg Lodge, one of five
lodging establishments operated by
the non-profit Colonial Williamsburg
Foundation. The foundation carries out
preservation and restoration of CW and
its historic ambiance.
A friendly driver for Groome Trans-
portation, Dave Wells, gave us a num-
ber of hints on getting the most from
our six days in CW, and filled us in on
operation of the historic enclave and
on the nearby historic sites ofYorktown
and Jamestown.
Such helpfulness is typical of the
attitude we encountered at every turn
during our visit.


S.L. Frisbie




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


On each visit, I am surprised to learn
(again) that some of the houses in CW
still are occupied as private homes, and
some are available for tourist rentals.
They are faithful to the historic theme,
but are not open to tours.
We were told that 88 of the buildings
are restored originals, while more than
500 others have been rebuilt on the
original foundations, faithful to their
Colonial design and contents.
Among the latter is the second Capi-
tol of Virginia (the first being at James-
town). Visitors sit on benches in the
House of Burgesses and are transported
back to June of 1776, when Virginia's
Declaration of Rights was adopted.
Many of its rights were incorporated
into America's Declaration of Indepen-
dence and Bill of Rights.
At nightfall, as we shivered in Vir-
ginia's approaching winter (we chose
to take windbreakers, not overcoats,
which was a mistake) we watched an Il-
lumination ceremony. In Illuminations,
torches (called cressets) are lit in front
of several major buildings; salutes are
fired with muskets; and a large fife and
drum corps performs.
It is an impressive ceremony, per-
formed today, as in the Colonial era,
only on auspicious occasions. We as-
sumed this one was in honor of Mary's

birthday the following day.

CW one mile long by a half-mile
wide abounds with craftsmen, from
printers to blacksmiths to basket weav-
ers to gunsmiths.
Excellent Colonial era food and bever-
ages are served at taverns which date
back to the 18th Century.
Costumed docents and guides bring
history to life for 21st Century visitors.

Preservation and restoration of CW
was the lifetime dream of the Rev.
W.A.R. Goodwin, priest of Bruton
Parish. The church, now an Episcopal
church, was the one-time house of wor-


ship in Williamsburg for the Church of
England.
In 1926, Goodwin recruited John D.
Rockefeller as CW's benefactor, and
the first four restored buildings were
opened to the public in 1934.
The rest, in more ways than one, is
history.

(S. L. Frisbie is retired. While at Wil-
liamsburg, he played the role of a lawyer
representing the plaintiff in a mock trial
in the county courthouse. He won. He
probably would have won even if the
defendant had shown up, but there's no
way to be sure, since he didn't.)

Stricter FCAT scoring angers board


By DIANE NICHOLS
DNICHOLS @POLKCOUNTYDEMOCXRAT.COM
Only one day after the Florida De-
partment of Education announced that
the state's high school graduation rate
has hit an all-time high, a presentation
was made to the Polk County School
Board about impending changes to the
Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test
scoring system that would set many
students up for certain failure.
Wilma Ferrer, senior director of as-
sessment, accountability and evaluation,
gave the board a description at Tuesday's
work session of the proposed proficiency
changes for reading and math for 2011-
12 and the possible impact. The new cut
scores, which will determine a student's
level of proficiency, will raise the bar
on standardized testing making the test
more difficult to pass.
"The graduation rate just came out
yesterday and it was so great," said Dr.
Sherrie Nickell, superintendent of Polk
County Schools. "The standard our stu-
dents are achieving is an international
standard and we are making that, but


now this new scoring system will mean
we can't meet our own state standards."
It's been 10 years since state education
officials reset the scoring system for the
FCAT. The new FCAT 2.0 and Florida End-
of-Course Assessments were given for the
first time in the spring, based on Florida's
updated, more rigorous curriculum
standards that were adopted by the state
Board of Education several years ago.
With the projected proficiency chang-
es, a student would need to make a 245
as opposed to the existing 243 to score a
level three achievement in reading. For
a level five achievement, the score has
been bumped up from 267 to 268. These
more rigorous scoring practices come
at a time when Polk County is already
showing some alarmingly low percent-
ages of students scoring at achievement
level 3 or above in 2010-11.
Only 29 percent of 10th graders
reached that milestone in reading and
59 percent made the cut in math. Tests
are scored from 1 to 5 with 3 considered
proficient.
Ferrer predicts the changes will not
only impact the students' success rate,


particularly at elementary school levels,
but also make it harder for the district
to have A and B schools. With county
schools carrying such a scarlet letter,
state funding will also take a plunge
because the higher a school's scores, the
more additional funding they receive
for such needs as books and equipment
along with teachers' bonuses.
Educating parents about the new
scoring system is going to be key ac-
cording to Board Member Hazel Sellers.
"Parents are going to be confused as
to why grades have dropped and their
kids are scoring at lower levels. Parents
will need to understand what the new
cut scores mean so we don't send the
community into a panic."
One of the most vocal opponents to
the proposed proficiency changes was
Board Member Frank O'Reilly who feels
the government has ulterior motives
behind the impending Dec. 19 vote.
"What is the purpose of this?" O'Reilly
asked. "We have worked so hard and
now we have to raise the scoring system
and kick everyone in the teeth just in
time for Christmas. The state is saying,


'Whoop, the graduation level is getting
up there so let's change the game plan.'
If anybody thinks the government isn't
doing away with the public school-
ing system, they are fools. We're seeing
charter schools all over the place and
it's done on purpose."
Board Member Debra Wright said
this issue was not going away and will
be detrimental to schools. Referring to
the Education Commissioner, Gerard
Robinson, Wright felt the impending de-
cision will come from "a commissioner
not vested in schools" and because he
was appointed by the governor "his
agenda is very clear."
Nickell and other superintendents met
with Robinson Thursday to voice opin-
ions and make recommendations before
the vote comes down. Nickell said data
was given to the state board outlining
the harm this new strategy would do to
the students if it moves forward, but she
sees the writing on the wall.
"This thing is coming at us like a
freight train this spring," said Nickell.
"We're going to have our work cut out
for us."


Polk County sues state over charter school law


By JIM SAUNDERS
THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA

Arguing that a new charter-school law
could violate their constitutional rights,
Polk and Seminole school districts are try-
ing to temporarily block the state Board
of Education from ruling in a pair of dis-
putes about proposed charter schools.
The boards filed lawsuits last week
against the state board and Renaissance
Charter School, Inc., which unsuccess-

fully sought approval from the districts
this year to open charter schools.
Renaissance in November appealed
the rejections to the state board. But
Polk and Seminole contend that a new
state law prevents them from taking
part in the appeals to try to counter
Renaissance's arguments.
The lawsuits, filed in Leon County
circuit court, come just months after
lawmakers took a series of steps aimed
at expanding the use of charter schools,

which are publicly funded but are oper-
ated by private organizations and are
free from many typical regulations.
Charter-school supporters say the pro-
grams offer more educational choices to
students. But even before this year's legisla-
tion, some school boards have clashed with
charter-school operators about whether
new programs should be allowed to open.
The Polk and Seminole cases center
on a legislative change that created
a designation of "high performing"

charter schools. Operators of high-
performing charter schools can apply to
open similar schools in other districts,
with the law making it harder for school
boards to reject those applications.
Also, as part of the high-performing
school issue, lawmakers created a dif-
ferent appeal process than is used for
other proposed charter schools.
In the lawsuits, Polk and Seminole
contend lawmakers effectively shut
them out of the appeal process.

Sun Ray celebrates the season


Sarah Rogers, Sean Baerhold and Betty Rogers in a decorated golf cart.


PHOTOS BY BECKY DONADIO
The Sun Ray Christmas parade was held on Saturday, Dec. 10. Neighbors lined up on the bikes,
motorcycles, lawn mowers and golf carts to take part in the parade. There were around 11
entries. All entries were very festive. The winner was Al Rogers, who decorated a float pulled
by his lawnmower. The second place winner was Dalton Wilbanks, who decorated his bike and
pulled a wagon of Christmas goodies behind him. The third place winner was the Marlow
family, who decorated a float full of little elves. The parade was escorted by the Sun Ray Citizen
Assisted Patrol (CAP) cart. The route went up and down a block of each street and ended at the
Community Center. A huge thank you to all those who attended. A special thank you to the City of
Frostproof for providing the fire truck. Among the parade participants: Zachary Rogers (with deer
antlers on), Ryan Wilbanks, Dalton Wilbanks and Ryan Donadio (back bike).


We wouldn't suggest hitting the
S. open road this way, but Clarence
Lefever looked pretty spiffy, and in
:, the holiday spirit, on his motor-
cycle and Santa hat.


Despite his shirt, Al Rogers really got into the Christmas spirit as he brought Santa Claus to town,
behind his riding lawnmower. OK, it wasn't a sleigh and reindeer, but in Florida, one has to
improvise!

Holiday homes light up the city


PHOTOS BY K.M. THORNTON SR.


As usual, some Frostproofians have gone all out to decorate for the holiday season. A must see
sits at the corner of South Lake Clinch Boulevard and Sunset Shores Trailer park, featuring some
time-tested decorations as well as a lot of new stuff. "I'm still a kid when it comes to Christmas
lights" says Jeannette Boshears. She has added a Santa in a hot air balloon, a seven-foot reindeer
and Santa peeping out of an outhouse. Yes, we said Santa peeping out of an outhouse. On a
windy night some items may not be blown up but they will be lit up as often as possible.


At 10 Beverly Drive, Dr. Joan Thurman says she does it for the kids that ride by to see the lights
but we think she enjoys it just as much!

Two local teachers get water grants


Sixteen Polk County teachers, includ-
ing two in Frostproof, have been awarded
Splash! school grants through the South-
west Florida Water Management District.
This year 157 Splash! grants were
awarded across the District's 16-county
region to educate students on Florida's
water.
Lance Corlew, Frostproof Middle-
Senior High School, will receive $2,540.
Students will test water quality at Circle
B Bar Ranch, and construct a photo diary
documenting how water is conserved.
Rachel Nicholson, Frostproof Mid-
dle-Senior High School, will receive
$455. Students will study the ecology
of a mangrove swamp, understanding
the differences between freshwater
and estuarine ecosystems, and learn
how to reduce impacts on a watershed.
Mary Margaret Hull, district lead
communications coordinator, attri-
butes the effectiveness of the grant pro-
gram in Polk County to the strong part-
nership with Polk County Schools. Milt
Huling, senior curriculum coordinator
of science for Polk County Schools,
serves as the district's liaison to teach-
ers and helped get the word out.
"The district recognizes the critical


role STiE I education science, tech-
nology, engineering and mathematics
- plays in preparing students for the
future," said I tli1. "With the help of the
grant program, students will learn the
importance of protecting and conserv-
ing Florida's water resources through
STEM-based education projects."
The goal of the Splash! school grant
program is to provide teachers with
funding to enhance student knowledge
of freshwater resources issues. Splash!
school grants provide up to $3,000 per
school on a reimbursement basis and are
available to public, charter and private
school teachers.
Past Splash! grant projects include
student monitoring of local water quality,
environmental field studies and outreach
campaigns designed to encourage water
conservation.
In addition to Splash! grant funding,
the district offers free teacher profes-
sional development workshops and
curriculum materials. The publications
are correlated to Florida's Next Gen-
eration Sunshine State Science Stan-
dards and can also be ordered on the
District's website at WaterMatters.org/
publications/.

The construction of a new multi-
purpose building on the grounds of Bok
Academy was approved Monday by the
Lake Wales Charter System Board along
with the go-ahead to investigate loan
options.
The middle school, although part of
the Lake Wales system, also has a number
of students from the Frostproof area that
attend.
There has long been a plan to expand
Bok, allowing the school to enroll more
students, and this is another step in that
direction. Financial director Brian Fisher
laid out two options for USDA loans, and
Fisher said "The project is expected to
cost between $900,000 and $1.2 million."
The actual building will be a prefabricated
metal structure which could be erected in
a relatively short time. "My recommenda-
tion is that we move forward with this,"
Superintendent Jesse Jackson said. Time is
of the essence, since student enrollment
projections are to be submitted to the
Polk County District office in February,
and any increase in students expected
for next year at Bok would need to be


included, Jackson said.
Charter attorney Robin Gibson asked
about state monies available for capital
improvements to "start-up" schools (and
Bok is a start-up school,) but Fisher and
Jackson said that with so many new char-
ter start-ups forming, state funding would
be stretched thin.
Fisher noted that the increase in
student enrollment would bring with it
additional funding.
"So as we increase the number of stu-
dents, that would help offset the costs of
capital improvement," Gibson said.
Jackson noted that area churches had
housed some of Bok's classes during
the first Bok expansion, for four to five
months, and they might be willing to
do this again. That way, new students
could be enrolled prior to the building's
completion.
The new building will have a two-part
function, Fisher told The Lake Wales News
via telephone. One part is classroom
space and the other a gymnasium-type
space. The building will be located east of
the Bok cafeteria, Fisher said.
Bok principal Damien Moses told the
board he was excited and looking forward
to the school's expansion.

CITRUS: Bartow man preferred


FROM PAGE 1A

J.A. Clark, Vernon Hollingsworth III and
G. Ellis Hunt Jr., along with McKenna
voted in favor of hiring him.
Ackerman, however, is not hired yet.
The Florida Citrus Commission meets
today to ratify the recommendation
and after that Ackerman has to appear
before a Florida Senate panel before
he is officially hired. (See related story,
page B-1, in today's edition of the
Leader.) But if the commission OKs
the recommendation he can be added
to the payroll and start his job, acting
executive director Debra Funkhauser
said.


Ackerman, as it turns out, was the
only candidate left for the search
committee to discuss Friday as the
two other finalists, Charles Powell and
Gregory Venner, dropped out this week.
Both cited as reason that they were un-
comfortable with working for a public
agency and the public scrutiny that was
involved.
Because of that, Garavaglia felt there
may be a need to start the search again
and get another list of candidates. He
didn't feel that the candidates were
fully brought to light on the scrutiny of
the job. Venner, for instance, expressed
being disconcerted that it was pub-
lished in area media that he was seek-


ing a public job.
"(Venner) said 'I dropped out
because of the publicity. Maybe the
candidates weren't advised of the
publicity and maybe we lost some solid
candidates."
Haycock added, "I had a candidate
call me and was surprised (that his
name was published in the media)."
Committee members agreed that
maybe there was something flawed in
the process, but both Hunt and McK-
enna said they explained the scrutiny
and McKenna added Ackerman didn't
seem-to have a problem with his boss
knowing he applied for another job; he
said he also understood what he (Ack-


erman) was facing, being in a public
position.
"You can explain the Sunshine and
the process and I felt like we were
somewhat successful," he said. "That's
what (Ackerman) wanted to talk about
all afternoon. So he seemed to 'get it.'"
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 consul-
tant to the department since he left,
but that ended the first week of No-
vember.
Ackerman's ratification is scheduled
at Wednesday's at 9 a.m.


SIGN: City closer to having one


FROM PAGE 1A

spending blueprint for the purchase of
a sign.
The $33,000 cost does not include
installation, or the cost of electricity to
run the board. Sign company officials
estimated that figure at about $30 a
month. Officials did not discuss any
specifics about the sign plan Monday,


but in past talk, the city envisioned the
board being put up near the intersec-
tion of First Street and Scenic Highway.
The planning board recommended
the removal of one proposed change
which specified road setback require-
ments. Several of the group noted that
if the setback requirements were left
in the code change, there would be no
way to put a sign anywhere on Scenic


Highway.
"No other street besides Scenic
Highway matters," said Planning and
Zoning Board member Jimmy Taylor.
"If you can't see it from Scenic High-
way, you don't want to waste your time
doing a sign."
There is no mention in the proposal
about what hours such signs could be
used, but there are dimming require-
ments for nighttime use.
Mayor Kay Hutzelman noted that any
such signage would be subject to state
Department of Transportation rules as
well.


"That takes care of a lot of problems,"
she said.
Officials noted that the proposed
code changes would not impact the
current electronic sign board at Frost-
proof Middle Senior High School or the
time and temperature sign display by
Citizen's Bank.
Although the money is included in
the city's budget, no vote has yet been
taken to actually authorize the sign
purchase. Some council members have
suggested that the city could recoup
some of its investment by selling adver-
tising messages on the board.

board, were on hand for a demonstration of a electronic sign board the city is interested in

A square replica of Tim Tebow
was not in Millennium Park over the
weekend but he was returned Monday
after being confiscated Friday depict-
ing him as a Wise Man from a manger
scene.
"There is some question of whether
or not it violates the county policy,"
said Mianne Nelson, Polk County's
communications director.
It may and on Tuesday a disclaimer
sign was placed in the scene saying
Tebow was not put in nor endorsed
by the county but he will stay there
through New Year's Eve. After the
holidays, Nelson said, the county will
review its ordinance and may revise it.
"There is probably some verbosity
with the policy, but in consulting with
the ACLU and with their blessing their
approval is to leave it there this year."
Nelson removed the Tebow look-a-
like Friday when complaining callers
alerted her to it. She said she removed
it because of it probably didn't follow
the county policy not because it of-
fended those who called Thursday and
Friday. She returned it Monday as the
county attorney's looked into whether
it followed the policy.
Former Polk County Commissioner
Randy Wilkinson is behind putting
Tebow in the display that also in-
cludes Santa Claus, a snowman and a
menorah. He said he and others put

no longer does.
The church has put a manger scene
there for years, but in 2004 when the
ACLU and other organizations sued
Polk County which said the display
was a government endorsement of
religion.
Two years later as commissioner
Wilkinson, a county commissioner,
said he brought up the idea of the
county enacting an ordinance to allow
something on county-owned land.
Wilkinson said getting the county to
pass an ordinance was tough, but he
believes the government should ac-
commodate religion.
"Christmas is a legal, federal holi-
day. Not every religion has a federal
holiday," he said. "Christianity is the
only religion with a federal holiday."
The ordinance says a menorah or
manger and Santa Claus, reindeer and
a Christmas tree can be displayed as
long as permission is sought. If religions
other than Judaism or Christianity want
to display something on county-owned
it has to seek permission from the
county commission, Nelson said.
Nelson said though the ordinance
only specifies the two religions it
doesn't mean those with other reli-
gious beliefs will be turned away.
"We recognize all forms of expres-
sion on our properties," she said.
Wilkinson said the ordinance didn't
purposely single out Christianity and
Judaism as he
recalls.
"By the verbiage
that's what it is,"
he said referring
to it specifically
pointing to the
two religions. "The
ordinance was a
compromise."

you go to Lakeland they have more

This year, Wilkinson with the help
of Turnkey Signs and Hope Now, a
faith-based drug transition agency,
put up the display because First-Bap-
tist Church is no longer doing it. This
year for the first time the church is
sponsoring a live nativity scene on the
lawn at the corner of Wilson Avenue
and Main Street.
However, with the Tim Tebow dis-
play, Wilkinson said he may have over-
stepped himself.


"They took Tebow down because the
statue doesn't follow the policy and I
respect that," he said Monday. "I guess
over the years I forgot that myself."
Ultimately what Wilkinson wants
people to realize is the erection of
Tebow in the scene was not supposed
to be offensive as Tebow is well-known
for his devotion to Christianity.
"Tebow was a missionary and has
gone all around the world," Wilkinson
said. "He's kind of like a Wise Man
to many hanging out there. Today it
could be Tebow, Tom Brady and Aaron -
Rogers," he said referring to two other
NFL quarterbacks.

Questions about Ackerman may come up


Citrus Commission poised to approve executive director candidate


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @ POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

When the Florida Department of
Citrus board meets today, there will likely
be some discussion of Douglas Acker-
man, the man the selection committee
is recommending to be the department's
executive director.
Approved by a 4-2 vote of the selec-
tion committee Friday, Ackerman will be
voted on whether or not to be ratified by
the nine-person commission today or
if it should start the search again, even
though it just began in August. If ap-
proved by the commission, Ackerman
would still have to be approved by a
Florida Senate committee but he could
start before the Legislature convenes in
January, acting executive director Debra
Funkhauser said.
Some of the discussion on Ackerman,
who is currently the marketing man-
ager for Publix Inc., may center around
his age and marketing background, the
salary issue could come up. While much
of his enthusiasm and understanding
was discussed Friday, members of the
selection committee Friday discussed the
fact that he has never been involved in
the citrus industry and the fact that his
marketing background has not matched
what the industry needs. Also, those in
the industry that spoke to the selection


committee said the salary range listed as
low and that may have kept the industry
from getting some responses, though 114
people responded to the advertisement
for the executive director's position.
"I was wondering if we considered a
higher rate of pay?" Edward Dickinson,
from Improcrop in Winter Haven asked
the selection committee Friday. He sug-
gested the pay should be in the range of
$300,000-$500,000. The advertisement
had the range from $200,000-250,000.
He said with the range being low he
felt like the industry may be settling for
someone.
Funkhauser said certainly the cap
could be reviewed, which is $275,000,
but it would take some doing, but Marty
McKenna said took exception to the word
settling when it comes to Ackerman.
"Maybe I didn't make myself clear
enough in my opening," he said. "At
.every juncture of the way, I picked Acker-
man. I'm not settling."
Others however, felt that while the
salary level is lower than in the private
industry, it is still a good salary.
"It's not big in the national private
industry, but with citrus growers fighting
to break even it seems to to look like a lot
of money," selection committee member
G. Ellis Hunt Jr. said.
Committee member Jay Clark felt
similarly "I've talked to growers and they


tell me this is a decent salary. We have to
look at how we spend our money and we
have to spend it wisely. I'm not feeling
many growers would find it acceptable to
cut marketing money or raise box taxes
to raise the salary."
Those who spoke in favor in Acker-
man, liked his background working in
Publix as well as his leadership in Af-
ghanistan when he led a troop in the U.S.
Army. Though his background doesn't
show he supervised a lot of people where
at the DOC he would, those who favored
his hire, felt he could rise to it.
There was some talk about his market-
ing background and whether it was what
the citrus industry is seeking.
"My concern is in his marketing back-
ground," MichaelW. Haycock said. "It's
not in consumer products, it's in restau-
rants," adding that those were smaller
operations.
He was also concerned that he jumped
around a lot, saying, "I'm always con-
cerned when someone jumps around
every year or so."
He added his background of being
with Publix was a definite plus, but
"When I look at his background and the
job description, some of it matches but
there is a bit of a stretch."
Michael J. Garavaglia Jr. said he felt like
Ackerman thought the position was a
stretch for him when he interviewed him.


"I feel, and this is a gut feeling, when
Ackerman applied for the job himself he
felt like it might be a stretch," he said.
"He's very energetic and that can work
to your advantage, but when you're in a
job like this you might find yourself in
trouble as well as you making great deci-
sions. One thing this department doesn't
need is distractions."
Garavaglia and haycock were the two
committee members who voted against
Ackerman's recommendation.
The fact that he has moved a bit in his
career didn't bother Clark so much as he
felt it was a way of being moving up and
getting better, but he admitted the DOC
is looking for someone to serve for the
long term.
His leadership ability didn't seem to
concern McKenna who said Ackerman
scored a 95 on the leadership exam and
though his marketing background is
not directly related to what the industry,
Hunt pointed out Friday he seems to
understand what the industry needs.
"He said orange juice is food of our
lives," he said. "I feel he's going to fight to
death to accomplish this."
Wednesday's meeting is scheduled
to start at 9 a.m. at the Florida Depart-
ment of Citrus Building, 605 E. Main St.,
Bartow. It is also scheduled to be shown
live on PGTV at www.polk-county.net/
pgtv.aspx.


NY Times Co. in talks to


sell regional newspapers


STAFF, WIRE REPORT
The New York Times Co. is in
advanced talks to sell all of its small,
regional publications.
The company said Monday that
Halifax Media Holdings LLC., owner
of the Daytona Beach News-Journal in
Florida, is preparing to purchase the
Times' Regional Media Group division.
The unit consists of 16 regional news-
papers, including The News Chief in
Winter Haven, the Ledger in Lakeland.
Financial details of the transaction
were not disclosed.
The New York Times, The Boston
Globe, The International Herald
Tribune, The Worcester Telegram &
Gazette in Worcester, Mass., and the
About Group are not part of the sale.
"We regret that the area will no
longer be served with the fine
journalistic traditions of the New


York Times Company. They've been
a quality competitor. Competing
against them has made us a better
newspaper," said David Dunn-Rankin,
president of the Suncoast Media
Group which owns the Polk County
Democrat, Lake Wales News, Frost-
proof News, Fort Meade Leader and
Your Haines City Herald. "We like the
prospects for the community newspa-
per business and would have liked to
been contacted as a potential bid-
der for several of the New York Times
Florida newspapers."
The announcement comes less than
a week after the company's CEO Janet
Robinson stepped down.
The Times Co., like many newspa-
per publishers, has struggled in recent
years as advertisers shift from news-
papers to cheaper alternatives on the
Internet.


Consultants hired for Brownfield Program


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @ POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
The Central Florida Planning
Council hired three companies to
consult on the Brownfield Program.
Those three firms are Cardno, TBE,
ECT Environmental Consulting &
Technology Inc. and Kimley-Horn and
Associates. They will be paid through
a five-year revolving grant that won't
cost the local taxpayers, said CRPC
Executive Director Patricia Steed.
The Brownfield Program is a way
for the areas in certain areas to be


assessed for contamination before a
business buys land and locates there.
A current company, U.S. EcoGen,
wants to start a plant in Fort Meade
in 2014, and is having land tested.
The biomass energy plant it wants
to locate also wants to plant hun-
dreds of eucalyptus trees around
Fort Meade to use the bark in them,
EcoGen President Bill Quinn said.
That is just one example, Steed
said there are hundreds of areas be-
ing tested.
"The cigar factory (in Bartow) was
previously on the list," Steed said.


The reason for picking three firms
is because because there is a lot of
work that needs to be done.
"It's a matter of options," she said.
"If one needs help the help is there.
Or some firm may not be available."
The firms were recommended by
a selection committee. Those on the
committee were Steed, Julie Davis of
the Central Florida Regional Plan-
ning Council, Fred Hilliard, the city
manager of Fort Meade, Amy Palmer
of the Central Florida Regional Plan-
ning Council and Richard Spaulding
of the Department of Health.


In other business:
Pat Huff was reappointed by the
Central Florida Regional Planning
Council as the chairman at its meet-
ing Dec. 14. Huff, who is currently
the mayor of Bartow, will serve his
second consecutive year as chair-
man. Minior Bryant from Hardee
County, will serve in his second con-
secutive year as the vice chairman.
Huff and Bryant were also appointed
to the finance committee as were
Barbara Stewart and Edith "Edie"
Yates.

she won in the 20th
Florida International
Senior Games and State
Championships.















Girl with golden shoes


By KATHY LEIGH BERKOWITZ
KLBERKOWITZ@LAKEWALESNEWS.COM
Claudette Braswell has done it again.
The woman who has bathed her sporty
path in gold, gold medals that is, this year
took home eight gold medals from eight
events in the 20th Florida International
Senior Games and State Championships.
And is her husband of 52 years, Jim,
proud?
"Amen to that," he says.
Braswell's events included pickleball at
Kelly Center in Lakeland on outdoor ten-
nis courts. It was her first time competing
in that event at the state level.
She played doubles with Pat Deacon
and mixed doubles with Russ Putnam,
and singles.
Then there was the horseshoe event
held at Rotary Park in Winter Haven.
"I had the highest scores of all the
women. I averaged 58 percent ringers,"
she said.
Her basketball shooting ability was
equally impressive.
That took place at Simpson Commu-
nity Park in Lakeland.
"This was the best shooting since 2003
when I first competed," she said.


Free throw shooting found her at 22
out of 30 shots, a 73 percent average. Spot
field goal shooting at five different spots
bagged her a score of 11 out of 15 shots.
She scored 102 points in the timed field
goal shooting.
The second highest score in her age
group for women was 44.
SShe played singles in racquetball as
her doubles partner was recovering from
surgery.
This year marked the first time she has
participated in eight events.
"The reason I am able to continue to
compete is because the Lord has healed
me of several problems. One of His many
names in Hebrew is Jehovah Rophe,
which means 'the Lord who heals,' taken
from Exodus 15:26 and 1 Peter 2:24,"
Braswell said.
"I am to be diligent about my stretching
and flexibility exercises as well as being
pure in heart. The Lord wants to heal
people," she said.
And she does have someone she wants
to thank.
The Lake Wales First Presbyterian
Church allowed her to practice in their
gym as the Kirkland Gym was under
construction.

FDOT construction


projects changed


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
A number of projects the Florida
Department of Transportation has
planned were changed in recent
weeks because of about $1 billion
going away, Jennifer Stoltz told the
Central Florida Planning Council last
week.
Four projects in Polk County were
affected with three deleted and one
deferred. However, one of the de-
leted projects is going to be added to
construction already going, another
was deleted because the rating of
the road was better than originally
presumed, and two were deleted due
to the money going away.
"DOT was informed to reduce
$1 billion statewide," Stoltz said. "At
that time we didn't know the im-
pacts and when we found out what
our share was going to be this is the
result."
Projects in Charlotte, Collier,
DeSoto, Hardee, Henry, Highlands,
Lee Okeechobee, Polk and Sarasota
were reevaluated.
In Bartow, $189,000 was budgeted
for road signs and road marking on
U.S. 98 from Manor Road to County
Road 540A. Though that was deleted,


"DOT was informed to reduce
$1 billion statewide. At that
time we didn't know the
impacts and when we found
out what our share was going
to be this is the result."
Jennifer Stoltz FDOT
it was added to the current construc-
tion going on, so that work will still
be done, Stoltz said.
Work on Interstate 4 from State
Road 33 to County Road 557 to
resurface the road was deleted
because the pavement rating came
back better than the DOT thought.
That saved the DOT $20,202,443.
However, two projects in Polk -
intersection improvement at County
Line Road at U.S. 92 and work on
U.S. 27 from the Highlands County
line to north of State Road 60 were
deleted because of funds. Combined
they totaled $3,737,462.
"Everybody (at DOT) tried to
minimize major impacts," she said,
adding the cities that have projects
under way are OK with the cutbacks,
"but they will certainly remind us of
the projects (in the future)."


LWHS needs 'recycled'


caps and gowns


If your winter holidays
include house cleaning,
check your closets for any
slightly used Lake Wales
High School caps and
gowns.
With 2012 graduation
preparation under way,
school leaders already
know that paying $50-plus
for a new cap and gown
will be a hardship for some
students.
"We want to start.a Cap
and Gown Closet so we
can to help more students
in the future," said Jill
Rickman, one of the Senior
Class sponsors.
Last year, some business
partners donated money
to help sponsor students.
When school re-opens in
January, donations caps
and gowns, or finan-
cial donations may be
dropped off at Lake Wales
High School. Rickman and
Krista Thompson are coor-
dinating the program.

Baby's projectile vomiting often due to Pyloric Stenosis


DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I've been
helping my daughter manage her
home and three other children after
she delivered a baby. The baby, a boy,
has started to throw up after most
feedings. He's not losing weight, but
this is trying on everyone.
The pediatrician says he might
have pyloric stenosis. I am not fa-
miliar with this condition. Can you
explain what's going on and how it's
treated? R.R.
ANSWER: The pylorus is the
last part of the stomach, the part
that joins the small intestine. It's a
somewhat-narrow passage. The walls
of the pylorus are sturdy muscles.
With pyloric stenosis, its normally
muscular walls are even more mus-
cular. That narrows the food passage
channel to a degree that food cannot
leave the stomach. This isn't a rare
problem. It happens in up to three
out of every thousand births. Boys
are the ones more likely to develop
it, and the firstborn, for unclear rea-
sons, has it more often than brothers
or sisters.
Quite often, pyloric stenosis runs
in a family.
The signature sign is throwing up
after a feeding. Vomiting might oc-
cur after every feeding, or it might
be more intermittent. The problem
shows up two to eight weeks af-
ter, birth. It can occur immediately
after being born, but that isn't the
most common scenario. The serious
complications of this condition are
dehydration and weight loss.
Projectile vomiting regurgita-
tion in a forceful stream of partially
digested milk is a classic sign, but
it's not always present. Seeing or
feeling a hard lump, an "olive," in the
abdomen is another tip-off.


Ask Dr. Donohue


Readers may
write Dr
Donohueat
PO. Box
536475,
Orlando,
FL 32853-6475


If vomiting doesn't subside on its
own, a simple surgical procedure to
widen the pylorus is quite effective.
The baby can usually feed 12 to 24
hours after the operation.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I had acne
as a teenager, and my parents, in the
late 1950s, sent me for X-ray treat-
ments. Now I'm in my early 70s. I
have a lot of basal cell cancers on my
face. I will be going for the removal
of seven more this week.
My question is: Should I move back
to the North from my present loca-
tion in the South? I'm thinking that
with all the sun exposure here, it's
making the situation worse.
I've put film on my windows to
block UV rays, installed sun shades
and do not sunbathe. I do have to
walk my dog briefly at midday, but
I wear a wide-brimmed hat. Some-
times I feel like a prisoner in my
home, as I am afraid to go out.
I really wouldn't mind moving back
to the North. J.P.
ANSWER: Basal cell skin cancer
is one of the most common kinds
of skin cancer. It arises in the basal
layer of the skin, the bottommost
layer. It doesn't spread to other
organs, but it can bore deeply into


tissues beneath the skin. Having had
one basal cell cancer puts a person
at increased risk for another. Ultra-
violet light is another risk.
You don't have to be a prisoner in
your home. You can safely go outside
if you apply sunscreen to all exposed
skin and reapply it frequently. Keep
wearing your wide-brimmed hat.
Basal cell cancer is more com-
mon in warm climates, where sun
exposure is year-round. Moving back
to the North lessens your risk, but
doesn't eliminate it. Northerners get
basal cell cancers, too.
You can live with greater freedom
in the South if you become a devoted
fan of sunscreen. The choice is yours.

The biggest dieting problem is sticking with it


The biggest problem with dieting
is that, well, you have to stick with it
- day in and day out. But a new study
presented at the recent San Antonio
Breast Cancer Symposium suggests
cutting calories sometimes, in this case
carbohydrates, may result in better
weight loss than counting calories all of
the time.
British researchers said that women
who eliminated carbohydrate-rich
foods such as bread, pasta and pota-
toes from their diet for two days each
week lost an average of nine pounds
in four months, compared to women
who had a 1,500-calorie, Mediterra-
nean-style diet every day. (They lost
just five pounds in the same period of
time.)
The researchers' goal was to develop
a diet that people could stick with,
particularly women with a high risk of
breast cancer. Obesity is a known risk
factor for the disease.
Besides helping take pounds off, the
intermittent diet also boosted other
markers of health, including levels of
insulin and leptin. The latter is a hor-
mone that helps regulate appetite and
is associated with tumor development.

Body of knowledge
An adult typically breathes in seven
quarts of air each minute.
Get me that. Stat!
The top five countries surveyed with
the greatest percentage of people who
said their life was boring were Turkey,
Mexico, United States, South Korea
and Greece, according to the Organi-
zation for Economic Cooperation and
Development.

Life in Big Macs
One hour of showering burns 136
calories (based on a 150-pound person)
or the equivalent of 0.2 Big Macs. It also
wastes more than 130 gallons of water.

Stories for the waiting room
It's an old saw that marriage produces
happier, healthier, longer-lived people.
If so, we're in trouble. A new analysis of
U.S. Census data shows just 51 percent
of American adults are married today,
compared to 72 percent 50 years ago.
Folks are also putting off marriage longer.
The average age for getting married now
is 26.5 years for females, 28.7 for males.

Doc talk
Dyspnea shortness of breath.

Phobia of the week
Phagophobia fear of swallowing.

Never say diet
The world's speed-eating record for
cheesecake is 11 pounds in 9 minutes,
held by Sonya Thomas.


Hypochondriac's guide
Cold urticaria is an allergic reac-
tion to cold, resulting in hives or large,
itchy red welts on skin exposed to a
cold stimulus, such as an ice cube. The
condition is usually temporary, but
can become chronic. It can be inher-
ited or acquired, most often occurring
between the ages of 18 and 25. Some
antihistamines help treat the condition,
but the usual therapy is simply to stay
warm.

Observation
"Despite all our toil and progress, the
art of medicine still falls somewhere


between trout casting and spook writing."
American novelist and playwright
Ben Hecht (1894-1964)

Epitaphs
"Lector, si monumentum requires
circumspice" or "Reader, if you seek his
monument, look around."
English architect and astronomer
Christopher Wren (1632-1723). The
epitaph was written by his son, noting
his father's burial in St Paul's Cathe-
dral, London, which the senior Wren
designed.

We're 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.

If you experience any of these symptoms, call 9-1-1, and ask to be taken to Florida Hospital.
For more information, please visit www.fhheartland.org

She Lke Wales News

The Polk County Democrat
Welcome to our new and improved newspapers. We have been working hard during the
past few months to bring you more local news and a more attractive product. Our staff
had made several improvements that I would like to share with you.

A SECOND DAY OF YOUR HOMETOWN PAPER
We now publish our paper everyWednesday and Saturday. That means you can keep up with
Polk County news twice a week and the news you receive is much more timely.
MORE POLICE AND GOVERNMENT NEWS
It is now easier to tell how safe our community is and where crime is being committed.
MORE COMMUNITY DISCUSSION
We have added columns from our city manager, local government watchdogs, the chief of police and civic leaders.
Your hometown paper is striving to be the marketplace for local ideas and commentary.
A SEPARATE CLASSIFIED SECTION TWICE A WEEK
We've added a classified section with employment ads, garage sales and other categories
to make shopping for those hard to get items even easier.
FREE CLASSIFIED ADS
If you have an item to sell and the cost is less than $500, you don't have to give us a dime. They are absolutely free.
MORE LOCAL SPORTS
We have expanded (almost doubled) our local sports coverage.We have been hard at work working
with local coaches and sports organizations and we now have drastically increased the number
of photos and sports results we publish each week.
THE BEST BUSINESS AND SERVICE DIRECTORY FOR POLK COUNTY
Looking for an electrician, lawn service and painter?
Our business and service directory is full ofbusinesses who can fit the bill.
We are proud of our recent improvements but know that there are many things to be done.
We would love to hear from you with your ideas.
If you think there is something we could do to improve our product, give us a call. I would love to hear your ideas.

Sincerely,
Jim Gouvellis
