Kitchen area, and a well.
' "\Ve really wanted to do something special
for the Wounded Warriors," Fedeiation mem-

resident and himself a naval veteran.
"So last year, we got together with the Forest-
ry Department and decided to build them their
own campground."
Cotton hopes the tournament becomes an
annual event. He said they had a similar event -
last year, and despite the bad weather, which
only allowed seven boats to show up, they suc-
cessfully raised money for their charity.
"When people heard the tournament was for

VIEWPOINT



Don't limit local control of water quality


A new bill has surfaced in the state
House and Senate that would allow com-
mercial landscapers to sidestep strict lo-
cal fertilizer ordinances that some coun-
ties have enacted.
It would weaken the ordinances by
removing the most important segment of
the public from the purview of the rules.
And why?
You can bet heavy lobbying by the fer-
tilizer and commercial landscaping has
something to do with it. And there's little
doubt the special interests are feeding
on lawmakers' desire to be as business-
friendly as possible right no\w.
Polk County currently has no local
fertilizer ordinance, but we do have 554
natural freshwater lakes which occupy
approximately 135 square iniles, or over
seven percent of the total area of the
county. We should think about dealing
with the issue.
No one questions why counties and cit-
ies along state's coast have enacted spe-
cial fertilizer ordinances in recent years.


Our Viewpoint

The people who live there accept the fact
that limiting the amount of nitrogen and
phosphorus that runs off into the water-
ways improves the quality of the natural
ecosystems that residents and visitors
enjoy and rely on, and it helps protect an
economy that depends on clean water.
Homeowners who use less fertilizer
while losing nothing in the vitality of
their lawns and landscapes are win-
ners. As we've said repeatedly, the local
rules that limit the type and amount of
fertilizer that canlbe applied are smart,
economical and painless ways for ho-
meowners, property associations and
businesses to be good stewards of the
environment.
Still, the move to protect the fertilizer
and landscaping industry persists. The
latest effort House Bill 421 and Senate
Bill 604 would exempt state-certified
fertilizer applicators from local ordinanc-


For whom the bowl tolls


When it comes to football, I am an
FSU fan.
That \ill come as no surprise to my
friends.
There is a difference between being a
football fan and being a fan of your own
team.
Football fans keep track of who has
recruited whom; who has the toughest
schedule; how many of last year's start-
ers have graduated; how many upper-
classmen are on academic suspension
or are in prison or otherwise are not
returning; how many coaches are under
indictment; and stuff like that.
Being a fan of your own team means
remembering whether you beat your
arch rival (the Gators, in my case) and
whether you and your arch rival both
beat your mutual nemesis (Miami) to
win State Champion bragging rights.
All the rest is window dressing, and I
have no interest in dressing naked win-
dows. Sounds a little kinky at best.
FSU beat Notre Dame on Thursday
in what used to be the Tangerine Bowl
game. It is played in Orlando.
This year, it was named for a sports
apparel store, possibly one that imports
athletic shoes manufactured by second
graders in some Third World country
and sells them for more than I paid for

my first car.
FSU beat Notre Dame the same way
Bobby Bowden used to win most of his
games: spot 'em two or three touch-
downs in the first half, then walk.all
over 'em in the second. It was just like
old times:
When I was a kid, playing Cowboys
and Native Americans with real bows
and suction cup arrows, bowl games
meant something.
There was the Rose Bowl, the Cotton
Bowl, and the Sugar Bowl. Each had its
parade, which often was more enter-
taining than the game.
And the winner of one of those three
was declared the National Champion.
By whom, I do not recall, but we were
a more compliant, less litigious nation
back then. When somebody in authority
declared that Podunk U was the nation-
al champ by virtue of beating Sawgrass


es. To opt out, all operators would have
to be certified in the state's Best Manage-
ment Practices as they must already.
Under the proposed state law, those
businesses would be exempt from lo-
cal controls, including a blackout period
June 1-Sept. 30, when no fertilizer may
be applied.
The whole thing makes even less sense
considering the state and federal govern-
ments are about to enact numeric nutri-
ent limits to pollution. We all know it's
easier and cheaper to keep nitrogen and
phosphorus from getting into the water
in the first place, rather than removing it
once it gets there.
SAs one local official told our newspaper,
"It's a disappointing maneuver, one of
many that have been offered by the fertil-
izer industry in a way to circumvent what
we consider our lawful right to maintain
our local control of protecting our water
bodies."
Yes, it is. Unfortunately, it seems par for
the course.


Tech, we just said, "OK, pass the black-
eyed peas."
Back then, all bowl games were
played on New Year's Day, and tradition
had it that'you would make a buck in
the New Year for every black-eyed pea
you consumed on NewYear's Day. It was
the only day of the year I ate 'em.
Today, any company with enough
money to buy a member of Congress
can purchase naming rights for its own,
bowl game.
When you have a venue in Tampa
that is named for a phone number, the
standard has gotten pretty low.


Bowl games selling naming rights is a
little like parade hawkers selling flash-
ing necklaces. It is not pretty.
In that spirit, I wish you prosperity for
the next 12 months in the name of the
book publishing company established
by my parents which I now own:
I wish you a Happy Imperial Publish-
ing New Year.

(S. L. Frisbie is retired. He does not
understand the BCS system for: picking a
national champion, nor does he intend
to learn it. And he now eats black-eyed
peas three or four times a year:)

Crew hikes through the preserve


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

For the seventh year Polk County
Commissioner Bob English led a group
of people on a tour through Circle B
Ranch to celebrate the new year.
Up to 75 people came to the ranch off
County Road 540 and made the two-
mile trek along Lake Hancock and were
delighted to see the wildlife and enjoy
the 80-degree sunlight as they strolled
through the preserve on the annual
Here's to Your Health Hike.
"We had a great time," said Alice O'Reilly,
who has gone on the hike with English
every year since he started doing it.
"The alligators were my favorite
part," said 8-year-old Haley Garcia. "I
saw eight of alligators."
Haley and her sister Hannah, 11,
were visiting from Tallahassee and took
the walk with their grandparents Alice
and Frank.
"It really has grown over the years,"
Frank said.
But the children weren't interested
in the crowd which has numbered up
to 200 in the past. They were more
interested in what they saw while they
walked.
"I saw a lot of the turtles," Hannah
said. "I saw about 14 of those'.
'And ducks," Haley said quickly. "I
saw one with a red beak. I also saw a
blue heron."
English has been taking residents
on the hike for seven years and started
doing it because just wondering what
he could do on NewYear's Day. He said
the hike's been held at Circle B for the
last five years; He frequently takes tours
through Circle:B as he lives nearby.
"It's a nice, healthy way to start the
new year," he said.


Jeff Spence, the director of the Parks
and Natural Resources for Polk County,
told those walking that there more than
200 species of birds that make homes
along Lake Hancock and the walkway
features two nesting eagles. There are
a myriad of alligators, turtles and other
species along the frail, but he warned
them, "Please don't pet the wildlife."
He told people to not try to keep
with English on his walk and walk at
your own pace as the trail is long and
afternoon was warmer than in the past.
And, most did keep their own pace
throughout the trek and English was
not leading the pack. He managed to
stay somewhere in the middle.
The 1,267-acre park is a county man-
aged environmental land it bought in
2000. It plays a role in the preservation
efforts of the Upper Peace River / Lake
Hancock system with Banana Creek
and Upper Saddle Creek both flowing
through the property.

Twelve stories to watch in 2012


Political stor/lines will have local, national implications


By MICHAEL PELTIER and DAVID ROYSE
NE, SERi\EL FLORIDA
Instead of rounding up the week's
news, which again was in short supply
this week we look forward to next year
with a roundup of the stories we think
may be the biggest next year in state gov-
ernment and politics. Happy New \ear.

12. A NEW LEGISLATURE,
OR MORE OF THE SAME?
When voters approved constitutional
amendments numbers 5 and 6 last
year, some undoubtedly thought that
they were laying the groundwork for
a sea change in how the Legislature
is chosen. For decades, many have
bemoaned that voters don't choose
lawmakers, lawmakers choose voters.
In drawing the legislative and con-
:gressional boundaries, gerrymander-
ing has always featured prominently,
and some say the result has been too
many non-competitive elections that
pre\ ent true change in the makeup of
political representation. Republicans,
while roughly even in registration, have
a lock on the Legislature for a variety of
reasons, and many observers say most
seats won't turn over unexpectedly even
with the new amendments in place.
The new rules say lawmakers can't
draw boundaries to favor themselves,
each other or their parties, but some
think that's pretty difficult. Come
November, we'll find out and whether
we have mostly the same faces in the
Legislature, or a crop of unexpectedly
competitive races that makes some
seats turn over will be one of the most
closely watched stories of 2012 for
Legislature-watchers.

11. U.S. SENATE
RACE MATTERS
Whether U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson can
win a third term is part of the national
political calculus in the coming elec-
tion year with control of the U.S. Sen-
ate possibly in the balance. Decisions
not to run for re-election by a number
of U.S. Senate Democrats mean a battle
for the control of the Senate that makes
every race matter.
Nelson, a Democrat first elected to
the Senate in 2000, doesn't yet know
who he'll face, but recent polls make
it look likely that the GOP candidate
could be U.S. Rep. Connie Mack. Re-
publicans will put massive amounts of
money and effort into the race if they
think they can win.

10. HIGHER EDUCATION
This is down the-list because, frankly,
it may be that not much happens. But
Sif something does happen, it could be a
pretty big deal. Gov. Rick Scott is start-
ing to talk to anyone who will listen
about the need for Florida taxpayers
to.get more for their money from the
state university system and about the
prospects for turning the university
system from a, well, university system
for students, into an economic devel-
opment tool for the state.
Building a better workforce through
technology (actually through science,
technology, engineering and math), is a
new, big part of Scott's idea for creating
jobs, something he's staked his gover-
norship on. The universities are well
aware of where Scott wants to go, and
are starting to try to figure out ways
they can help drive the train rather
than being just hitched to it and pulled
down the tracks.
So something is moving, but how

long it will take isn't clear. It's a pretty
big, fundamental change that is being
talked about putting the state's needs
ahead of the student's needs as a recent
report by the Higher Education Coor-
dinating Council put it and it may be
a multi-year project. Some lawmakers
and even Scott have acknowledged it
will be tough to do a lot on this issue.
quickly. But it will be looming in the -
background all year.
Of course, locally, don't expect that
the USF Poly brouhaha will settle down
anytime soon.

9. PIP: BEYOND
FRAUD DOME
Fraud is bad. That is about the only
consensus that could be reached as
players in the game of personal injury
protection car insurance met in 2011 to
map out reforms to curb the dramatic
rise in the cost of the coverage cre-
ated in the 1970s to establish a way for
injured motorists to get medical atten-
tion without going to court.
Gov. Rick Scott and Chief Financial
Officer Jeff Atwater have called for.re-
forms. Tougher penalties for fraud will
be a likely outcome, but other sugges-
tions to limit coverage, cap attorneys
fees and place more scrutiny on physi-
cians and clinics may be too heavy a
left during an election year session.

8. HEALTH CARE REFORM
Perhaps the biggest policy ques-
tion mark is expected to be answered
this year by the U.S. Supreme Court.
The nation's highest tribunal has. been
asked to determine if the Obama
Administration's sweeping health care
reform package is constitutional. The
high profile case which is pushed by
Florida will determine the shape of
health care for the foreseeable future
and beyond as it settles the question of
whether a mandatory, national health
insurance,requirement is legal.
Florida and 25 other states have
brought their objections to the high
court, which has scheduled oral argu-
ments for March. What happens to
almost everything else in health care
reform hinges, at least in part, on this
case.
Meanwhile, Florida will press
forward in trying to get the federal


government to OK its own Medicaid
overhaul to push patients into private,
managed care, consider changing the
reimbursement system for Medicaid
to payment schedules based on what
problems people face, rather than on


what services they get. and consider
whether to make changes to the laws
governing public hospitals and their
-taxing districts.

7. BUDGET BATTLEGROUND
In a related matter ... the current
year budget is still bigger than the
amount of money lawmakers generally
expect to be able to bring in from taxes,
so cuts are in order. This is related
to the health care item for a simple
reason: the biggest budget battle of
the 2012 budget fight may Medicaid
funding. Gov. Rick Scott has proposed
a $1.8 billion cut to the program by
reducing reimbursement rates to some
hospitals. Scott wants to use the say-
ings to bolster initiatives in higher edu-
cation and K-12. Hospitals and their
affiliates are expected to fight hard
against the cuts, which they say will be
taken from inadequate reimbursement
to begin with.

6. REDISTRICTING
For the inside-the-Capital Circle
crowd, the once-a-decade reshuffling
of political boundaries will take center
stage shortly after lawmakers return
following the start of the New Year. This
one is closely related to several others
in the list, but the actual drawing of
the districts and whedier it is political
or not the so-called sausage making
rather than the outcome of it discussed
in No. 12 above will be one of the
most closely-watched activities of the
first half of the year in Tallahassee. It
also. may drive much of what happens
in the courts over the late spring and
earl- summer, too.
Wiih session slated to begin lan. 10,
the Republican-led Legislature must
decide how it wants to addtwo con-
gressional seats and redraw congressio-
nal and state districts to reflect popu-
lation change over the past 10 years
while complying with the aforemen-
tioned arfendments aimed at making
the process less politically driven. Both
chambers have pledged to get the work
- done-early-so the courts have time to
do their jobs.

S5. GAMBLING: WILL
BACKERS HIT JACKPOT
S OR CRAP OUT?
Some have already called it the Lob-
byist Relief Act of 2012 but combatants
Sin the battle over opening up South
Florida and maybe other places to
multi-billion resort gambling devel-
opments should get a fair amount of
attention early on.
The question is whether backers of
"destination resorts" have the political
clout to overcome objections by existing
pari-mutuel facilities, additional anti-
gambling groups and Indian gaming
interests. In Mliami, there's talk of the
world's biggest gambling resort which
some are kind of excited about and oth-
ers are frankly seared to death of.
,


SThe issue may come down to jobs
and whether backers can convince a
skeptical governor that the develop-
ment of resorts in Broward and Miami-
Dade Counties is worth the potential
loss of revenue from the Seminole
tribe. In addition, loopholes in state law
that have led to a proliferation of barrel
racing at Gretna and other potential
venues and could open the door for
slot machines -- could also jeopardize
the deal with the Seminole tribe.

4. RECOVER FOR REAL?
Recent economic indicators have
given some hope that the U.S. econ-
omy is on the mend. With home sales
and housing starts improving while the
national jobless rates begins to fall, the
answer as to whether this recovery is
the real deal will be largely decided by
the end of 2012.
Persistently high unemployment has
led some to believe that the jobless
numbers are decreasing because dis-
couraged workers have given up. Only
a sustained reduction on that front
would quell those concerns. Europe
will play a key role in the recovery as
major trading partners grapple with
runaway debt.
In Florida, eves will continue to be on
the unemployment rate, right now 10
percent. Whether that goes down a lot
or doesn't will be the primary gauge on
the success or failure of Gov. Rick Scott.

3. WHO WILL IT BE FOR
THE GOP/REPUBLICAN
CONVENTION?
For politics junkies, the primary elec-
tion will still be abig story even if the
question of who will carry the Republi-
can standards decided rather early in
the year. Florida has moved its primary
up to Jan. 31, arid some think that not
long after that it %will be apparent who
the nominee is long before the Republi-
c.an Convention in Tampa.
Then, in late summer, the nation's
political attention will fix on Tampa,
where the GOP will convene its con-
xention. All discussion aside.on..wheth-
er the convention really matters much
anymore in an environment where the
nominee is decided in primaries, for
_.political theater, it's hard to.beat it in
this country.

2. WILL GRASS ROOTS
GROW, OR WITHER?
The last year has been notable to
politics watchers for the rise of tw-o
different groups the more mature Tea
Party movement on the conservative
side could have been the political story
of the year, and the Occupy movement
that arose more recently on the liberal
side is also influencing the national
political discourse.
The qpestioq for 2012 is whether the
Tea Party will continue to have the im-
pact on elections that it has arguably'
those with tea party leanings elected
Rick Scott, and forced a number of


Polk County's JD Alexanderwill start his final year in the Florida Senate as chairman of the
senate's budget committee, making him a powerful-voice in Tallahassee.


There is sure to be plenty of discussion in Tallahassee about casino gambling, how much and how
big, in 2012.


Republican candidates on the state and
national levels to a more populist posi-
tion on a number of issues. Another
question is whether the Occupy move-
ment will grow into anything beyond a
curiosity and annoyance to park-goers
and begin to have an impact on policy
- could it reinvigorate liberals, for
example, who have come down hard
from their 2008 high?
Throughout the nation's political
history, there have been a number of
strong populist movements that have
aimed to take back the mantle of power
from the corporate interests, the "fat
cats" and the entrenched iriterests.
Most have faded after a couple years.

.1'. FLORIDA,
FLORIDA, FLORDA
Go ahead and call.us out for taking
the easy way out. But since the.dead-
locked presidential election of 2000, the


conventional wisdom in presidential
elections is that Florida is the key that
unlocks the door to the White House.
After the virtual tie, the state has
gone back and forth, voting %with
George W. Bush in 2004 and then with
Barack Obama in 2008, both winners.
The state is unique among the big 5
in its swing state nature. Illinois, one
of two home states of the incum-
bent president, votes for Democrats
in presidential elections, as do New
York and California. Texas is reliably
Republican.
Only Florida is a toss-up among the
states with the biggest electoral col-
lege votes. So the political story of the
year in Florida will be whether a cur-
rentlynot so popular sitting president
can withstand a challenge by an as-
y'et-to-be-determined GOP candidate,
and whether the winning of Florida
will continue to mean winning the
election.

Teachers get identity lesson


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKC:1I NT'i iEMO1c NT.iHC_

Teachers were given three homework
assignments on Monday.
Assignment number one was to put
your Social Security card in a lock box.
Assignment number two was never
use your PIN number except in your
bank ATM machine.
Assignment number three pull your
credit report now and do it at least
quarterly.
Those assignments came from Gina
Butler with Fifth Third Bank. She and
Tony Sasso gave selinaurs at five differ-
ent schools Monday during the Teacher
Workday around Polk County. Their
lesson was on identity theft. Fifth Third
two years ago began seminars for dif-
ferent businesses on how people can
protect themselves an their money in
today's world that involves less human-
to-human contact and become more
computer-to-human contact. Monday's
lesson on identity theft showed teachers
how an identity can be compromised,
what to do if it happens and how to be
proactive to make it not happen.
"The question is \ill it happen to ou,"
Sasso asked the crowd in Bar ow High
School's auditorium. "Probably so."
Butler said statistics show that a
person's identity is stolen n tius country
ever four seconds. In 2010, 9.6 million
peoplein the United States had their
identities stolen. This year, Sasso said,
that number could go to 14 million.
In explaining how easily it could hap-
pen he asked how many people had a
gaming system in their home. Many
hands were raised.
"Sony was compromised last July and
numbers were taken," Sasso said. "Be
cautious going forward."
In further explaining how easy it could
be td steal numbers and identifica- .
tion, he used an example of a gas pump
showing one on the overhead projection.
Asking.v.hat wa,s wrong, no.one could
spot it. On the punp w\as a skimmer that
was installed that looked like someplace
you put your card. The pump looked like
it had two places to put yor card. Those
who used the fake one, the number,
would be taken into it and the ID thief
would later take the device off and either
steal the identity or sell it.
That's one of the reasons Butler told
the teachers to lock up their Social
Security card rather than carrying it in a
wallet.
"When was the last time you used it?"
she asked.
Identities can be stolen from people
in a handful of ways where the victim
may never realize. Some of those ways
include dumpster dining, skimming,
phishing, filling out a change of address,
old-fashioned stealing and pretexting.
Sunday night on the television show


"60 Minutes," people learned of dump-
ster diving. There was a story on how a
high school student was able to make
fake identities by items found in dump-
sters. B\ doing that, he was able to take
the SAT test for dozens of students for
$2,500.
Butler told a story of how a waitress
at a restaurant had her own skimming
device in her apron and "she'd steal your
credit card numbers if you were rude to
her."
Butler also warned of answering
texting messages and answering email
where people pretend to represent
companies seeking information, an item
referred to as phishing.
The most common fraud practice in
this area, Sasso said, is tax fraud. That is
a system where people get information
from you, file a fake tax fraud and keep
the money. Those who commit the fraud
don't get caught because the Internal
Revenue Service can only get in touch
with you. Sasso said Hillsborough is the
top county in Florida experiencing this,
but said Pinellas and Polk are not far
behind.
"They target a lot of retirees and the
military," he said.
For the second assignment, Butler
warned people to not use their PIN.
numbers.
"Thieves are buying ATM machines,
rewiring them tirelessly and use to steal-
Ids," she said. "Before we started this
class I did a search and saw there were
400-500 ATMs for sale on eBay."
She also said that with a law that went
into effect last year if an identity theft is.
not reported to the bank within 48 hours
the bank does not have to pay back the
consumer for the money that was stolen.
Credit card companies will pay back
within 60 days.
"This (identity theft) is something that
is evolving," she said.
To explain, Sasso told of a law firm that
allows its employees to use Facebook on
theil computers at work. -
"Fraudsters were able to take all 240
employees bank accounts and transfer
their funds to out of country banks," he
said. "And they were able to close down
their phone system so they couldn't call
the police or the bank."
For their third assignment, Butler
told the audience to frequently check
their credit rating. There are three items
that have to be checked: Make sure the
primary address is correct, check the
accounts and make sure they belong to
you and check the inquiries and be sure
the names are correct. And, the pair said
do it quarterly.
Sasso said though it has to be checked
regularly, the best time to check is in
February. That is the month the most
theft goes on. He said it was after the
holidays and it's a time that is frequently
after someone may check their report..

Tony Sasso talks to teachers at Bartow High School Monday in a seminar showing them how to
protect themselves against identity theft. Here he shows a gas pump and shows them a device
on it that would steal their ID. He appeared at the school with Gina Butler, both of whom work at
Fifth Third Bank.


"Eighty percent of you will find some-
thing wrong," he said.
In checking on her credit report, Butler
said she was able to find out that some-
one was trying to set up a fake identity
on her having enough information to set
up a bank account.
If anything does happen to your iden-
tity, Butler said there four things people
must do. Close down allyour accounts.
"I don't care if you have direct deposits
going in there. If you think things are,
cleared up, eventually someone will try
to go in there again."
Place a fraud alert on your credit
reports. That way you will be notified

when your card may be used.
File a complaint with the Federal Trade
Commission. And, finally file a police
police report.
"If you don't, there's always a chance-
the financial institution won't deal with
it," she said.
SWhile it is easy for thieves to steal
someone's identity, Sasso did let people
know companies are trying to combat
it. Showing a Red Box machine where
people can rent a movie with a swipe of
their card, he pointed out a metallic box
on top of it.
"So that eliminates people putting on
skimmers," he said.

Florida was weird as only it can be in 2011


By BRENDAN FARRINGTON
ASSOCIATED PRESS

TALLMIASSEE Did you hear about
the giant Lego man that washed up on
Siesta Key beach? What about the man.
who walked into a bar, ordered a beer
and disappeared for 30 minutes to rob a
bank, only to return and finish his drink?
Or hotv about the puzzling story of the
baby grand piano that showed up on a
sandbar near Miami?
That's Florida, where weird is an every-
day event.
*Over the past year, a 92-year-old
woman fired four shots at a neighbor
who refused to kiss her, a Delray Beach
man cut off a piece of a dead whale that
washed ashore -- planning to eat it -
and an 8-year-old, girl gave her teacher
some marijuana and said: "Thisis some
of my mom's weed."
The piano \was a mystery for about a
month. On Ian. 1, 2011, the charred in--
strument showed up on a Biscayne Bay
sandbar, a couple hundred yards horn
shore. A 16-year-old student eventually
admitted he put it there as part of an
art project. A day after it was removed,
someone set up a table with two chairs,
place settings and a bottle of wine.
It's still not clear how the 100-pound,
8-foot-tall Legd man washed ashore.
The local tourism bureau hoped to use
Lego man to promote the area, but the
man who found it has placed a claim
on it. He can keep it if the owner doesn't
collect it before early next year. As for
the bar-bank robber, he was arrested at
his watering hole, not too long after the
holdup.
Author Tim Dorsey, whose novels in-
clude Florida strangeness both real and
fantasy, said the state is an odd place
because of its diverse, highly transient
population.
"There's pockets of strangeness all
over the country, but here it's a baseline
lifestyle. There, it's the aberration. There,
it's the tail end of the bell curve. Here, it's
the peak of the bell curve," Dorsey said.
It's probably why Lego man received
more media attention than the $1.25
million worth of cocaine that washed
up on a beach south of Port Canaveral
in September and the $2.2 million in
cocaine that washed up on a Fort Pierce
beach the next month. There are a lot of
odd drug stories in Florida.
Like the Boynton Beach Police Depart-
ment's 2010 "Officer of the Year" who
was accused of selling drugs in 2011.
Or the marijuana found growing on the
property of Oak Hill's 84-year-old mayor.
There were also several younger
Floridians that contributed to this year's
odd news.
In Palm Beach County, an elementary
school teacher opened an end-of-the-
year gift from an 8-year-old student's
grandmother and found toiletries and
a loaded handgun. A Tampa woman up-
set with her 15-year-old son's bad grades


forced him to stand on a street comer
with a sign that read: "Honk if I need an
education."
A 15-year-old Florida Keys girl who
is a big fan of the "Twilight" books and
movies was afraid that her mother would
get upset by the bite marks her boyfriend
gave her after they acted out her vampire
fantasy. She made up a story about being
attacked; doubtful investigators got her
to tell the truth.
Deputies arrested an 18-morith-old's
father after they found the man passed
out in his mobile home while the toddler
was in the yard picking up beer cans and
drinking from them.
Pasco County deputies said a woman
walked into a bank with a 3-year-old boy
and robbed it. A homeless man held up
a Tampa bank, fled on a city bus and
handed out stolen cash to passengers.
Police say a man robbed a Gainesville
credit union then began throwing money
from his car as he fled on Interstate 75.
And while-he didn't rob it, an unhappy
Palm Coast bank customer left quite a
deposit. He urinated in a drive-through
bank tube and drove off..
Animals always account for a fair share
of odd news..At the Miami airport, a
Brazilian trying to get through security
was caught with several baby pythons
and tortoise hatchlings in his underwear.
A woman found a 7-foot alligator in her
bathroom, and a man stored his dead
cougar in a freezer.
Wildlife officers arrested two men with
sacks containing about 260 alligator
hatchlings near Lake Apopka. A 10-foot
gator attacked an Alachua County sher-
iff's cruiser, damaging the front bumper.
as the office waited for a trapper.
A Jupiter condominium association is
requiring residents to pay for DNA test-
ing for their dogs so they can track down
who doesn't pick up dieir pooches' poop.
Offending poop is mailed to Tennessee
where a company seeks a match.
A dog ate $1,000 in cash a St. Augus- i
tine couple left on a table.
Among creatures found in Florida '
pools were an alligator, a python, a bear
and a retired racehorse. -
A Fort Pierce woman came to her
husband's rescue when a cow attacked
him, ramming the animal several times
with a pickup truck and then picking up
a'pistol and shooting it in the face.
In an unusual crime stories, two man-
agers of a Lake City Domino's Pizza were
charged with burning down a rival Papa
John's as a way to increase business.
Two deaf men using sign language were
stabbed at a Hallandale Beach bar when
another costumer thought they were
flashing gang signs.
Police in St. Petersburg said two
would-be carjackers forced a couple out
of their car at gunpoint, but then ran
away after they couldn't figure out how
to drive a stick shift.
A North Naples man who was pulled
over for a traffic violation called 911 and


reported a shooting nearby to get out of
a ticket. He still got a ticket and was also
charged with making a false 911 call.
A Lake County jail inmate discovered a
glitch in the phone system that reim-
bursed him twice for calls that didn't
connect, so he made a lot of them and
hung up. He earned more than $1,250,
which he used to post bond. Later that
day he was charged with grand theft.
Investigators found a piece of severed
finger inside a glove near a house that
had been set on fire and used it to track
down the arsonist.
In other odd fiery news, a man in Fort
Lauderdale injured himself when he
was smoking a cigarette while using an
oxygen machine and the unit exploded.
A Fort Walton Beach man set his house
on fire while smoking a cigarette and
cleaning his foot with rubbing alcohol.
A Boynton Beach man splashed rubbing
alcohol on his roommate's boxer shorts
and set them on fire because he was
late with the rent. In similar fashion, but
perhaps for a different reason, a Marion
County woman was charged with setting
her boyfriend's genital area on fire.
A Flagler County woman who bought
what she thought was a.novelty ciga-
rette lighter called authorities when it
turned out to be a real, though not live,
grenade. Police in Greenacres evacuated
a neighborhood v, hen a woman digging
in her yard uncovered aWorld War II-era
grenade and a Jacksonville man found
a World War II-era bazooka round while
tearing down a shed
A celebrity boxing promoter sued Jose
Canseco when the former baseball star
sent his identical twin Ozzie to the bout
instead.
A Pensacola Toyota dealer lost a
$7.5 million lawsuit filed by an Iranian-
born competitor. The lawsuit said the


dealer told customers that his competi-
tor was funneling money to terrorists
and called his business "Taliban Toyota."
A South Florida man accidentally
threw out his wife's engagement ring
then went to the dump the next day and
sifted through a 9-ton pile of trash. He
found it.
Not that romance always flourished in
Florida. A Broward County woman was
arrested after holding a steak knife to her
husband's throat and demanding he sign
divorce papers.
A Gainesville woman was arrested
after her ex-boyfriend accused her
of throwing an urn with his mother's
ashes through a window and an Orange
County man lay down in front of a car
to try to stop his girlfriend from leaving
after a fight. But the driver didn't see him
and he was run over. Panama City police
say a man crashed through a Waffle
House while trying to run over his wife, a
waitress at the restaurant.
Deputies said a Walmart employee in
Naples pepper sprayed a coworker and
then bit the tip.off her finger after hear-
ing a rumor that the victim was sleeping
with the attacker's husband.
And in just plain odd news, an Ocala
ice cream shop got rid of its costumed
mascot a xwa\ing vanilla cone --be-
cause passers-by kept mistaking him for
a hooded Ku Klux Klansman.
Also, a \woman with two uteruses gave
birth to twins in Clearwater- one from
each.
And speaking of uteruses, a Democrat-
ic lawmaker accused the House speaker
of admonishing him for saving the word
during floor debate, a charge Speaker
Dean Cannon denied. Still Demo-
cratic lawmakers and others around the
Capitol began wearing pink buttons that
Simply said "UTERUS."

Just talking about it brings tears to
Max Mayer's eyes.
The first thing the local jeweler want-
ed to do when he heard of the death of
Lakeland OfficerArnulfo Crispin was
to somehow let Crispin's family know
that there was an entire community
who were keeping the family in their
thoughts and prayers as they grieved
the young officer's death.
Crispin, 25, was shot in the line of
duty on Sunday, Dec. 18, and passed
away Dec. 20.
The death grieved Mayer, for his son,
Sterling, 21, is studying to be a law
enforcement officer at die University
of North Florida at Jacksonville. He
said it hit close to home, as the world
is changing, and it does cross his mind
how dangerous an occupation his son
is entering.
So Mayer got busy.
He crafted an angel pendant out of
silver and placed it on a silver chain.


The angel held a heart with the letter
"A" for Arnulfo.
Mayer wrote a letter from his family
to Crispin's family, and then commis-
sioned Lake Wales Police Chief Chris
Velasquez to deliver the necklace,
nestled in its velvet box, along with the
letter, on the day of Crispin's funeral,
Tuesday, Dec. 27.
Meanwhile, in the Lake Wales Police
Department, there is at least one of-
ficer who is dealing with a loss of her
own.
Detective Mary Jerome will attend a
funeraltoday for a former coworker at
the Seminole County Sheriff's Office,
Deputy Matt Miller.
Miller was on his police motorcycle
pursuing a speeding vehicle, accord-
ing to records, when another vehicle
pulled out in front of him.
Jerome said, "It's always personal
when any law enforcement official
is killed in duty," noting that Miller's
death is the second time she's had to
deal with the loss of a co-worker.
But how do officers deal with news

This is the pendant and

of those who have paid the ultimate
sacrifice?
"You reflect on the good times, and
you try to understand why, but there is
no understanding why," she said, add-
ing that largely, "you just go forward."
They go forward, no doubt, because
the job goes on, this calling in which no
day is completely predictable.
Not that they aren't already aware of
the job's dangers, Jerome admits it is
a sobering thing which makes officers
more aware and conscious of what is
going on around them.
And Mayer?
He hopes that the necklace he sent to
Crispin's family will in some way help.
Pausing to wipe away tears, he said,
"Maybe it will bring them closure.
Maybe not."
"I just wanted to offer them some
support."

Max Mayer. of Mayer Jewelers wanted to offer
some support to the family of late Lakeland
Officer Arnulfo Crispin, who died in the line of
duty recently.

Project seeks to save Peace River quality


Swiftmud recreating 1,000-acre wetland at Lake Hancock


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT

Dozens of bulldozers, tractors and
sleds are moving earth on a 1,000-acre
swath of Polk County just north of
Bartow as the South West Florida Water
Management District takes steps to
improve water quality in the meander-
ing Peace River.
That, in turn should provide a boost
to Fort Meade's efforts to further capi-
talize on its new "Blueway" status.
Centering on long-polluted Lake Han-
cock, Swiftmud is recreating a 1,000-
acre wetland that will take the polluted
lake water, filter it through wetlands
and dump it back into Saddle Creek, the
Peace Creek and other small waterways
that feed Peace River that leads into
Charlotte Harbor.
More than seven years ago, the water
management district's environmen-
tal engineers started devising ways to
cleanse the waters of Lake Hancock,
and decided that the recreation of a vast
natural wetland rife with wetland plant
and animal life was the best way to
improve the water's quality.
In the $20 million project, stretching
from the south shores of the lake almost
to U.S. 17 near the Bartow Air Base,
PCL Constructors Inc., will be not only
recreating the massive wetland, but
will build numerous concrete control
structures, pumping stations, levees
and drainage pipe systems to take the
water from the wetlands into the feeder
creeks; according to Janie Hagberg, an
environmental engineer and project
manager for the water district.
"Over the next 20 months, there will

will be installed in the wetlands which
will filter the water before it is directed
into Saddle and Peace creeks," Hagberg
explained.
The plants will be installed in strips
and nature will fill in the gaps between
the strips, she adds. More than two
million cubic yards of earth -ill be
"moved by huge tractors and sleds to
restructure the formerly mined lands
into a viable levee-protected wetland.
Some of the steel reinforced concrete
structures measure 15 feet deep and 15
feet across, Hagberg says. She adds the
cleansed water will be fed into these
huge tanks before being released back
into the creeks.
-The wetland is being constructed on
Old Florida Plantation property north-
east of Bartow once scheduled for de-
velopment, she explains. The land was
obtained when the development failed
and the water quality project solidified.
When the project is completed in
.May 2013, H-agberg expects the full
wetland regeneration to be accom-
plished within a year.
"We believe that within a year, when
growth has filled in the gaps in vegeta-
tion and the wetland system is fully
functioning, water quality will see

This structure will be cloaked in concrete and act as a holding basin for treated water to feed
Peace River.


marked improvements downstream,"
Hagberg said.
In 2011, Fort Meade was designated
as an official "Blueway" destination by
the Florida Paddling Trails Association.
Only a handful of places in Florida
have received such .a designation,
designed to highlight the outstanding
paddling and kayaking opportunities
in the designated area.
The Lake Hancock project is not only
expected to improve water quality, but
water flow as well as additional lake


waters heldback during \et periods.
\\ill be released during drier months.
_Mso helping the effort to attract
outdoor enthusiasts was the open-
ing of Heritage Landing, a launch site
on the Peace River east of Homeland
on County Road 640, part of Mosaic's
Peace River Park complex. The launch
site is on the south side of County
Road 640, about a half mile east of the
main entrance to the park which fea-
tures a boardwalk down to the river's
edge.

Tales of tails in line, for five dollar shots

One of the first to have his pet receive
an inoculation was David Lockhart of
Lake Wales, who had brought his cat,
Guinevere. Her behavior at the time of
injection left him in wonderment.
"I'm actually surprised she didn't
make any noise," he said.
However, had he wanted, all Lock-
hart needed to do was listen to those in
line whose dogs were barking and cats
meowing.
Some of the people patiently waiting
had (no pun intended) tales to tell. An-

Despite the growing crowd, many of
the people appeared to be in good hu-

"It's quite an event, isn't it," said
Marie Hasse, of Haines City. "I just

Haines City to 'steel' itself


for half-Ironman marathon in 2012


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@YOURHAINESCITYHERALD.COM

Haines City and east Polk County scored a major
sporting coup with announcement that in May 2012 a
major Ironman competition will be held here the next
five years.
For the past six to eight months, Mark Jackson and
MarcZimmerman (both with the Tourism/Sports di-
vision of the Central Florida Visitors and Convention
Bureau), along with Kelly Callihan, who heads up the
Haines City Park and Recreation Department worked
with World Triathlon Corporation to bring its annual
half-Ironman event for the next five years. In the past,
the event has been held in the DisneyWorld complex.
Already the excitement is palpable.
"It's exciting. It's really going to help Haines City,"
said Cyndi Janotomaso. Although she is a staff mem-
ber with the Haines City Economic Development
Council, she was speaking for herself as a private citi-
zen. Part of her excitement, she said, stemmed from
the fact she is a runner and belongs to a local running
club. Again speaking just for herself and not the EDC,
she believed this event would aid the city in its efforts
to attract a major hotel.
She was not the only person to use the word "ex-
citement" or express similar sentiment when discuss-
ing her reaction to the news.
"I'm excited," said Callihan, who said that the num-
ber of months it took to work out the arrangement
came to fruition on Dec. 8. "We're hoping we will
have the event beyond five years."
Like many, the economic impact cannot be ig-
nored, he said. "With the economy the way it is, we
really think it will be a shot in the arm."
This is not the first time such an event by the World
Triathlon has been held in Polk County, Callihan said.
He recalled it being held in Grenelefe, but was moved


when that site was no longer deemed viable.
Businesses are also heartened by the news.
"We are thrilled from a Chamber standpoint," said
Betsy Weddington Aycock, president of the Haines
City-Northeast Polk County Regional Chamber of
Commerce. She added that along with two other'
events that grow with each succeeding year its
Ribs on the Ridge and Thunder on the Ridge (the July
4 celebration) the half-marathon will add to the
city's luster. "We get people from out of the county,
not just Polk, coming to these events." She expects
the same will occur with the half-marathon.
Like Janotomaso, the chamber is aiding Haines
City in its effort to attract a major hotel. Part of that
is being accomplished by tracking inquiries for the
city. Meanwhile, whenever inquiries arrive seeking
lodging, the chamber refers people to either Vacation
Home Rentals, in Davenport, or first to hotels that are
chamber members, many which are located immedi-
ately off the U.S. 27-Interstate 4 interchange.
"We definitely want to "put heads in beds," she
said. Aycock added she would like occur is that peo-
ple who come to Haines City and east Polk County
for the Ironman half-marathon is for them to make
return visits. "We'll do our part," she declared.
Aycock paid tribute to those who succeeded in
bringing the event. "We're really proud."
So, too, is Polk County Commissioner R. Todd
Dantzler, who represents Haines City, who said he
had spoken with Jackson, who told him that he (Jack-
son) estimates nearly $10 million will be generated
from the event.
"It's the multiplier effect. There's going to be a
number of jobs created. "People are going to be going
to restaurants, buying gas, food shopping," said the
commissioner. "It will be fantastic."
For his part, Marc Zimmerman errs on the side of
caution. He believes at least $5-$6 million in rev-


enue will be generated. Headded, however, that he
deliberately placed his estimation on the low side.
Regardless how much is generated, this definitely is
an honor.
"We're very excited being able to secure the event
for five years," said Zimmerman. "It's going to be a
showcase for Haines City and Polk County."

Why Haines City?
Zimmerman said that Tourism and Sports Market-
ing scouted a number of locales and that Haines City
worked out the best. Callihan confirmed that assess-
ment when he spoke of the reaction the people of
World Triathlon had when they inspected Lake Eva
Park, which is where all marathon activities will start.
"They couldn't believe we have such a nice park in
Lake Eva," said Callihan.
Zimmerman said the fact The Scenic Highway also
runs through Haines City was an added incentive.
That is because the bicycling part of the half-mara-
thon will be from the city to Bok Tower in Lake Wales
and back.
"The Haines City Police Department and the Polk
County Sheriff's Office will make sure all the partici-
pants are safe (when bicycling)," said Callihan.
Further logistics, he added, will begin when all the
parties meet Jan. 10.

About the half-marathon
Haines City and Polk County will be the site of the
event for the next five years. The county will pay a
total of $250,000 ($50,000 per year) to host the half-
marathon, which is expected to attract at least 2,500
athletes. Their stays are projected to last at least a -
week, for training as well as participating in the event.
The half-marathon itself will include a 1.2 mils
swim, a 56-mile round trip bike ride, and a 13.1 mile
run.

Full ban on driver calls could be tou toto enforce


WEST PALM BEACH (AP) A driver in the next
lane is moving his lips. Is he on a hands-free cell-
phone? Talking to someone in the car? To himself?
Singing along to the radio?
If lawmakers follow the advice of a federal board,
police officers will have to start figuring that out -
somehow.
The National Transportation Safety Board said this
week that drivers should not only be barred from
using hand-held cellphones, as they are in several
states, but also from using hands-free devices. No
more "Sorry, I'm stuck in traffic" calls, or virtually an
other cellphone chatter behind the wheel.
Though no state has yet implemented such restric-
tive rules, the NTSB's recommendations carry weight
that could place such language into future laws, or
motivate the federal government to cut funding to
states that don't follow suit.
Many of the men and women patrolling the na-
tion's streets and highways wonder how they would
sort the criminally chatty from the legally chatty.
"It would be almost impossible to determine if
someone was talking on a phone or exercising their
vocal cords," Said Capt. Donald Melanson of the West
Hartford, Conn., police department, which took part
ina national pilot program aimed at cracking down
on drivers' cellphone use. "That would be much
more difficult to enforce, almost to the point where it
would be impossible."
Officer Tom Nichols of the Port St. Lucie, Fla.. police
said a law written like the NTSB suggests would be
difficult to enforce because so many variables would
be at play.
"Ifyou identify someone who has a hands-free set
hooked up to their ear that doesn't mean they are
talking on the phone," he said. "They could be talking
to a passenger. They could be talking to a child in the
back. They could be singing."
Police could end up turning to technology for help.
They might even end up with the cellphone equiva-
lent of a radar speed gun.
Fred Mannering, a Purdue University civil engi-
neering professor who is associate director of the
Center for Road Safert, said that since all cellphones
emit signals, a simple Bluetooth detection device
could spot them. .
Computers are already common in patrol cars, and


Mannering said a relatively cheap add-on could fit
them to track cellphone signals.
"It would be really easy for police to have a com-
puter on board and pick up those signals," Manner-
ing said, "but it is sort of Big Brother."
The NTSB's proposal, announced Tuesday as a
unanimous recommendation of its five-member
board, urges all states to impose total bans except
for emergencies. It cited deadly crashes caused by
distracted drivers across the country, and noted that
many studies have shown that hands-free cellphones
are often as unsafe as hand-held devices.
The recommendation poses an astounding number
of questions. What about chauffeurs and traveling
salesmen \ho spend their entire day on the road?
And roadside Amber Alert and Silver Alert notifica-
tions that implore drivers to call in if they spot a spe-
cific vehicle? \'hat comes of phone lines dedicated to
those "How's NMy Driving?" signs on trucks? How will
you let someone know you're stuck in traffic?
Joe Schwieterman. a DePaul University professor
who studies people's use of technology while travel-
ing, said he can't envision a la\w so restrictive ever hit-
ting the books because phone use has become com-
monplace for drivers. He called such an approach
"draconian" and said that if such a la\\ were passed,
the public would despise it as "imperial overreach,"
then ignore it.
"It's a little like speeding laws where it will become
just culturally acceptable to violate," he said. He said
a no-call law would be followed only if violations car-


tried stiff penalties like those for drunken driving.
Lewis Ka tz, a law professor at Case Western Reserve
University, said a nationwide ban on using cellphones
while driving would be wildly unpopular, and likely
the target of legal challenges. But he believed such a
law, and the methods police might use to enforce it,
ultimately would be deemed as constitutional as seat-
belt enforcement.
"I'm sure that it would be challenged on all sorts
of constitutional grounds, including free speech," he
said in a phone call from his car. "But it seems to me
that it doesn't in anyway infringe on any constitu-
tional rights. It's a simple safety issue."
Whether the NTSB's recommendations \will mo-
tivate lawmakers remains to be seen. but the\ ha-e
certainly caught their attention..
Florida House Speaker Dean Cannon, a Republican,
said he was wary. His state is among those that have
resisted passing laws restricting drivers' cellphone
use.
Cannon said future technological advances may
prove more effective than legislation at addressing
driver distraction issues. As an example, he cited his
new.iPhone, which can make phone calls and send
text messages via voice command.
"In these attempts to try and prevent every bad
thing from happening," he said, "it's all too easy to
overly restrict personal freedoms and individual
rights and responsibilities."
.Sheriff Ric:Bradshaw, the top law\ enforcement of-
ficial inPalm Beach County, Fla., said that if lawmak-
ers take the NTSB's suggestions to heart, they should
address all manner of distracted driving.
"I see women putting makeup on. I see a guy with
an electric shaver. I see one woman with a newspa-
per. I see a guy with a dog in his hands. All of those
are worse than texting," he said.
Monique Bond, a spokeswoman for the Illinois
State Police, said training would be key to enforcing
any ban. Officers are already looking for unbuckled
seat belts and swerving drivers; they'd have to add to
their mental checklists.
"It's something that is not insurmountable," Bond
said. "How you're going to spot it, or how you're going
to look for it you have to acclimate the troops and
acclimate the operations as to how to do this."

USF to rename med school after Morsanis

SPhilanthropists Frank and Carol Morsani donate $20 million


By LETITIA STEIN
TAMP. BAY TIMES .

The University of South Florida plans
to rename its medical school today
after philanthropists Frank and Carol
Morsani, whose $20 million donation
to construct a new college of medicine
is the largest in USF's history.
The gift brings the couple's contri-
butions to health initiatives at USF to
$37 million, which is why the medical
school will bear their name. The Morsa-
nis' donations to the university now
total $43 million, another record.
Their past:donations have helped to
build an outpatient medical clinic, a
women's softball stadium and a football
practice complex, all at the main cam-
pus in north Tampa.
But the Morsani College of Medicine
will leave a legacy like no other.
"This university, we feel, is on the
cutting edge of making things happen,"
said Frank Morsani, 80, who made his
fortune on car dealerships and spent
years trying to bring Major League
Baseball To the Tampa Bay area.
USF officials intend to leverage the
money into a $60 million campaign
to replace the medical school's four-
decade-old facilities, seeking additional
private donations and state funding.
By late next year, they hope to break
ground on a prominent building de-
signed to encourage greater collabora--
tion across the USF health professional
schools in medicine, nursing, phar-
macy and public health.
The donation comes at a critical
juncture for USF's medical school.
Dean Stephen Klasko has been retool-
ing the school's ambitions in response


to sweeping consolidation across the
health care landscape and new com-
petition from four medical schools
created in Florida in recent years.
Klasko is backing away from an ag-
gressive push to build a standalone
hospital at USE which he once saw as
essential to bolstering its reputation in
national rankings. Instead, he thinks
the new building will bring students in
closer contact with patients and build
on recent successes in forging unortho-
dox partnerships to expand the medical
school's reach.
"Instead of saying,,'Poor us, money
Sis going down,' we're saying, "What an
opportunity,' Klasko said. "A $2 trillion
(health care) industry is going through
cataclysmic change."
Although the Morsaniname is not
unfamiliar in charitable circles it
graces an outpatient medical clinic at
USE a lobby at the Tampa Museum of
Art and a theater at the Straz Center for"
the Performing Arts the couple said
they were reluctant to have the medical
school named in their honor.
"We're not Donald Trump or those
people that want their name on some7:
thing. That's never been why we have
Given a nickel to anything." Frank NMor-
sani said. "We hope this encourages
others to say, 'Let's examine what we
are going to do with our resources.'"
USF would join the ranks of 19 medi-
cal schools nationally that have been
named after a donor, according to the
Association ofAmerican Medical Col-
leges, including the private University
of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
An undetermined portion of the
lMorsani donation will also launch
the Klasko Institute for an Optimistic
Future in Healthcare. The institute is


envisioned as an incubator for ideas
like USF's alliance with the Villages
retirement community to improve the
health status of seniors.
But the $20 million donation mostly
will help to replace the medical school's
outdated facilities, whose age and
space limits were problem areas in its
last accreditation review. Officials hope
to begin construction late next year in
space that has housed the outpatient
medical clinics along Bruce B. Downs
Boulevard.
The $60 million, five- orsix-story
building will feature an open design,
'encouraging collaboration between


students and educators in USF's
health-related disciplines, including
the schools of medicine, nursing, phar-
macy and public health.
Along with classrooms, lecture halls,
auditoriums and a fitness center, the
facility will house d full-time health
clinic run by students to serve the un-
insured for free, expanding on a service
they now are able to offer only one
evening a week.
"What we really want to be able to do
is to teach, learn and provide care as
part of our learning process," said Dr.
Alicia Monroe, vice dean for education-
al affairs at the medical school.

Adherents of Kundalini Yoga mark 41st celebration


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@LAKEWALESNEWS.COM


Say the word yoga and it probably
would not be surprising that the first
image that comes to the minds of many
is someone twisting him or herself into
contortions. But there is more to yoga
than that, as well as the fact there are
different forms of yoga, and from Sun-
day, Dec. 18 through Sunday, Dec. 25,
the 41st annual Winter Solstice Sadha-
na Celebration was held at the Circle F
Dude Ranch campground. It has been
held there since 1989, having been held
S at another
location

the move.-

Religious connection
While many of the estimated 2,000
attendees now follow the Sikh faith as a
result of practicing Kundalini Yoga, it is
not necessary, and not all present have
taken the vows. Of those who are Sikhs,
many were not born into the faith.
Singh pointed out that Yogi Bhajan did
not proselytize.
"The practices of his religious faith
he only taught when they were request-
ed," said Singh. "What happened was,

the positive experiences practiced that
many wanted to learn more, Singh

of Superior, Colo., who was raised in an

in the solstice celebration was pro-

something in everybody that craves
spirituality. I wanted that sense of
connection to the larger universe, that
sense of belonging."

Awakenings and awareness
For Beth Fincke, originally from Pitts-
burgh but who now lives in Boston, this
was her first time at the winter solstice.
.Fincke, who teaches ESL (English as a
Second Language) at Boston Univer-
sity, had begun practicing hatha yoga,
primarily because she also is a dancer,
and it was through that path she dis-
covered Kundalini Yoga.

ABOUT KUNDALINI, KARMA
AND WHITE TANTRIC YOGA
For those seven days, attendees practiced three
ancient yogic traditions: Kundalini Yoga, Karma Yoga.
(selfless service, also known as "seva"); and White
Tantric Yoga.
Kundalini Yoga, according to Wikipedia, is a physical,
mental and spiritual discipline for developing
strength, awareness, character, and consciousness.
Practitioners call Kundalini yoga theyoga of aware-
ness because it focuses primarily on practices that
expand sensory awareness and intuition in order
to raise individual consciousness and merge it with
the Infinite consciousness of God. Considered an
advanced form of yoga and meditation, its purpose
is to cultivate the creative spiritual potential of a
human to uphold values, speak truth, and focus on
the compassion and consciousness needed to serve
and heal others.
Karma Yoga basically consists of entirely selfless
service, in which the ego is given up to the desire to
serve the divine in every thing, be it man, animal,
plant or an inanimate object (source: www.sanatan-
society.org). White Tantric Yoga (source: /www.3ho.
com) can be one of the most life altering experi-
ences one will ever have. It builds a person's etheric
energy to give that person the ability to easily
transcend the lessons of the earth by opening one's
intuition to give an awareness to what one's soul is
currently working on. Then the White Tantric Yoga
energy can support one to release or heal issues by
working in the realm of the soul. All are part of the
legacy of Yogi Bhajan, who dedicated his life to the
creation of a healthy, happy and holy humanity.


"Yoga is like different branches of a
tree," she said. What she found particu-
larly appealing about KundaliniYoga,
she said, was that it does not focus on;
the physical, it encompasses a'wider .'
range. "This is like a tool kit, what I
need.
"It's like a stage in my journey. It's lik;
peeling away layers, remembering wh6o
you are," she said.
What she and others were going ::
through was not unusual, said Amrit
Singh Kahlsa, of Trinidad, whose grand-:,.
parents were yogis, and who, at age 40, ,:
had been practicing KundaliniYoga 31
years.
"We're constantly growing in con-
sciousness," he said. "Life shifts and we
(have to know how to) shift with it." '

Watch your wei hand our wallet


By IRENE MAHER
TAMPA BAY TIMES


It's the first week of the new year, and for many
people that means one thing: Time to diet.
But who can afford all the fresh produce, lean pro
teins, whole grains and fat-free everything else that
you need to lose weight?
You don't have to invest in special ingredients
and expensive foods to eat more healthfully. But you
will have to set aside a little time for planning and
preparation.
The payoff will come when you see your cash
Sregister.receipts and slip on those skinny jeans that
l haven't fit for months or years.
Take it from me: I've lost 25 pounds since 2009,
and I did it by eating healthy foods from local grocer-
ies and working out at an affordable gym. Conve-
nience and economy were key for me and my unpre-
dictable schedule. Here are some tips I'm still using,
to maintain my weight loss. I hope they help you with
your personal resolutions.

Make a rough menu plan for the week and use
it as the basis for your shopping list. No need to be
-too detailed, but if you don't have the basics for your
meal plan, the temptation to hit the drive-through or
a pricier restaurant is too great. Here's one of mine:
Breakfast: cereal, milk, fruit, toast.
Lunch: meat, cheese and bread for sandwiches.
Dinners: Monday, pasta and salad; Tuesday, chick-
en and-broccoli; Wednesday, beef and green beans;
Thursday, vegetarian zucchini casserole and salad;
Friday, fish or shellfish with brown rice pilaf; Satur-
day, thinly sliced pork chops with baked potatoes;
and Sunday, roast chicken with mixed, oven-roasted
vegetables.
SSnacks: fruit, baby carrots, nuts, yogurt.

Check the ads at a few nearby grocery stores, in the


newspaper and online. See whicfifishe best deal.
Before Christmas, Publix ha~fittBerball turkey for
$1.09 pound, while Target had it for 97 cen-ts-a pound.

Double check the day sale prices go into effect.
- On a recent Wednesday, fresh pineapple was $4.99 at
Publix; the next day you could get two for $5.
Don't assume boutique g ocery stores are always
pricier. A Fresh Market nearnme.as- the best price on
fresh raspberries, one of h te-healthy snacks.
Don't assume the storibr~'sa7isIheapest. One
example: the Publix brand of c- ied chick peas (a
great source of lean protein to sprinkle on salads) was
89 cents on a recent day; the Hanover brand \\as 81
cents.

Watch those BOGOs. They're not automatically the
best deal financially I\ill you eat all that spring mix
before it rots?) or calorically (are you strong enough
to keep nx-o bags of kettle chips in the house?)

Beware of some conveniences. Compare the cost
of boneless, skinless chickenbreast with bone-in,
skin on or better yet, whole chicken and you'll
see what I mean. Besides, white meat is leaner, but
cheaper dark meat is far more flavorful. Lose the skin
and you lose most of the fat. Save the bones for stock.

Let the butcher help you with portion control. We
love steak, but to keep cost and calories down, we
limit it to once a week and buy what I call "skinny"
steaks, quarter-inch NewYork strips. They cook in
a flash, and the lean, 4-ounce portion comes out to
about 275 calories. Butchers can cut "skinny".pork
chops, too.

Skip the $3 or $4 bags of prewashed salad greens,
and buy lettuce by the head for $1 or $2.
Consider frozen vegetables. My husband loves
brussels sprouts, but a small package of fresh was al-


most $4 on a recent shopping trip. I found a 12-ounce
package of frozen Birds Eye sprouts for $1.97.
Put blinders on, and stick to your list to save both
your wallet and your waistline. If tempting foods
aren't in your home, it's easier to stick to your plan.

More tips
Always check the clearance table. I recently found
a package of my favorite green tea bags for $2,-about
half-price.
Grow your own herbs. Stop paying $2 and $3 for
small bags of fresh herbs that you likely won't even
finish before they expire. Put a $2 plant in a pot, park
it in a sunny spot, and you'll always have a fresh sup-
ply.
If all you need is lunch meat for two sandwiches,
order 6 slices at the deli; you don't have to buy a
Sound or even a half-pound. Need just a handful of
green beans? Ask the produce clerk to break the pack-
age. Don't let the rest deteriorate in the fridge.
You canrget good deals from bulk bins at stores like
Whole Foods and Rolling Oats on healthy items like
dry beans and brown rice, but make sure you shop at
busy stores with lots of turnover so you're assured of
freshness.
Low-fat bakery items are expensive. Instead, make
homemade bran muffins with egg whites and fat-
free milk. Keep them in the freezer for a high-fiber,
healthy snack.
Buying fresh and in season is smart, and a great
way to do that is at local farmer's markets. You're also
likely to find unusual.produce, which can add interest
to your healthy plate. But do know that costs may be
higher for organic produce though the quality and
idea of supporting local entrepreneurs may make it
worthwhile to you, A friend says she gets the prettiest
and cheapest sunflowers anywhere at St. Petersburg's
Saturday.Morning Market. Visit tampabay.com/
things-to-do and search "market" to get a list of local
fresh food outlets to investigate.


New year's resolutions, small changes big results


By LETITIASTEIN
TAMPA BAY TIMES

Today's gung-ho enthusiasm for get-,
ting healthy in the new year may not
last. But the latest science tells us that
even short bursts of effort matter.
Small changes that you stick with can
yield big results. Even if you backslide,
some benefits can remain.
S Get in a good workout, and days
later your body still is doing a better'
job ofregulating.blood sugar.
It's discouraging to lose a few
pounds and then put them back on
again. But experts say such weight cy-
cling generally is not harmful. Plus, you
may have improved your health during
the time you weighed less.
Heavy drinkers who stop can repair
much of the damage to their livers -
provided they take charge before an
irreversible condition such as cirrhosis
has set.in.
Quitting smoking is famously
tough. But scientists say to keep trying;
the benefits of kicking the habit are
v--ajor, and they start within hours of
taking your last puff.
Whatever your resolutions, make
sure they are well-chosen and not too
extreme. Modest adjustments, prac-
ticed repeatedly, become habit more
easily than radical change. And if you
overdo a health kick, you actually can
. hurtn y ourself.
So if you're thinking that starting on
New Year's Day oLI will all at once quit
smoking,, quit drinking, run live miles a
day and lose 50 pounds on a macrobi-
-otic diet, it's time to get real.
"Nothing in excess," advised Barbara
Hansen, a professor at the University
of South Florida and director of its
Obesity, Diabetes and Aging Research
Center. "It's trite."
But true.
S.When calories count
SLost in the constant chatter about
losing weight is how much science
doesn't know about the long-term ef-
fects of dieting. Individual factors like
age. genetics and body type determine
Sour ideal weight a number that has
litde to do with those skinny jeans you


dream of wearing.
"There's not a nice, eas- formula to
apply," Hansen said.
Consider a Swedish study of 2,000
obese people who underwent bariatric
surgery to lose weight.
Fifteen years later, many of the
study participants are still overweight
or obese though less severely than
when they started. But they are report-
ing fewer cases of diabetes and hyper-
tension, said Claude Bouchard, chair
in nutrition and genetics at the Pen-
nington Biomedical Research Center in
Louisiana. He is involved in the Swed-
ish study.
But what about a person who is not
obese (defined as a body mass index
over 30), but just 10 or 20 pounds over-
weight? Is dieting a health imperative
at that size?
"It's very hard to tell whether it's
advantageous for an overweight person
to lose weight or not," said Bouchard.
Since the risks of excess weight rise as
the pounds increase, it's clearer that an
obese person does benefit from weight
loss.
And while many will regain weight
over time, most researchers no longer
consider weight cycling also known
as yo-yo dieting harmful, even if the
benefits are limited, Hansen said.
"The longer you keep it, off, the bet-
ter," she added.
By losing-weight and keeping it off,
she noted, you can postpone or control
Type II diabetes, improve your cho-
lesterol and reduce your risk of deadly
heart attack and stroke.
But the USF professor cautioned that
too-rapid weight loss can be detrimen-'
tal, especially in the elderly. That's be-
cause when large quantities of weight
are lost quickly, significant amounts-
of lean muscle are lost along.with fat.
And if the weight is regained, it's likely
to come back in the form of fat. So ul-
timately, you're less healthy than when
you started.
Baby steps to exercise
Don't consider it a failure if you can't
stick with a NewYear's resolution to
exercise daily.
And don't think your workout isn't
working until you see sleeker thighs


and bigger biceps. Inside, your body is
reaping benefits from the start.
Even a few times a week of modest
exercise is worth your time, according
to the Pennington Center's Bouchard.
"The glass is not full, but it is only
half empty," he said of limited exercise.
"A little bit helps, and more is better
- and a great deal is even better. But
we've got to begin to walk before we
run, and that applies to changing your,
behavior as well."
With regular exercise, he noted, your:
body improves its ability to regulate
blood sugar. The benefits linger for
days after your last workout, but are
largely gone if you don't exercise again
for a full week.
Exercise has similar impact on blood
pressure and cholesterol, Bouchard
said, although it's not.clear how long
these benefits last.
Relief from depression, insomnia
and anxiety also are benefits of modest
exercise you may enjoy from the start.-
The main danger in exercise is push-
ing to the point of injury. In the elderly,
a misstep that leads to a fall can break a
joint-such as a hip, a devastating event.
On the other hand, seniors who stay
active, particularly with yoga and tai
chi, are less prone to balance problems.
Even younger athletes can land in
the emergency room with life-altering
sprains, strains and tears if they overdo
a health kick.
So if you're new to exercise, start with
walking. For more, seek advice from
a trainer at your local gym or senior
center.
Drinkers: Less is more
Some studies show that moderate
drinking canreduce the risk of heart
disease and stroke and even help
people with Type II diabetes. (And by
moderate, scientists mean one drink
per day for women and two for men.)
But a recent study found that women
who have as few as three drinks a week
can see a small increase in their breast
cancer risk.
Such contradictions are one reason
researchers generally don't suggest that
nondrinkers pick up a cocktail solely
for health benefits. And it's never wise
to drink if you are pregnant, taking


.medications that could react with alco-
hol or have a family history of alcohol-
ism.
What is clear are the harmful ef-
fects of excessive drinking. Over yeais,
alcohol can harm almost every organ,
from the liver to the heart, which can
become enlarged, and the brain, im-
pairing memory and decisionmaking
ability.
Yet even heavy drinkers can improve
their health by scaling back if they
do it in time.
"It depends when you quit and after
how long," said Sam Zakhari, direc-
tor of the Division of Metabolism and
Health Effects at the National Institute
on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
If you haven't been diagnosed with
a serious problem, such as cirrhosis or
brain damage, he said, it's probably not
too late.
"If you quit before you inflict irre-
versible damage, then you are fine," he
added. "The liver can regenerate and
the muscle can be strong again."
Job One: Quit smoking
If you do nothing else for your health
in the new year, quit smoking.
"It really represents the most im-
portant health behavior change that
an individual can make to impact
their health," said Vani Simmons, a
researcher in the tobacco research and
intervention program at Moffitt Cancer
Center in Tampa.
That applies even to patients who
have already developed tobacco-re-
lated cancers. Treatment can be more
effective, with fewer side effects, in
patients who quit, Simmons said. And -
breaking the halit can prevent a new
cancer from developing.
"Some patients maybe even some
(health care) providers might say
once somebody has got cancer, what's
the point" in quitting, Simmons said.
"There still is a point."
Don't throw up your hands if you've
failed before. It often takes a half dozen
or more attempts for a smoker to suc-
cessfully break the habit. And think of
it this way:
"Any time you spend not smoking is
an improvement.

Food soldiers that fight winter ailments


The winter months are blessed with--
memorable celebrations. They can, howev--
er, also be accompanied by a considerable
amount of misery. Unwanted guests, such
as the flu, common cold, sinus infection,
bronchitis, or a sore throat, are more preva-
lent during this season. The good news is
that we don't have to helplessly roll over.
Much can be done to prevent or mnnimize
such events.
Food remedies passed down for centu-
ries by medical mavens and grandmothers
have. later been clinically and scientifically
proven to be valid and effective. These
foods boost immunity, are muco-kinetic
(mucus moving) and contain substances
which act as decongestants, expectorants.
In addition, many are anti-viral, anti-bacte-
rial, anti-inflammatory, and help the body
detoxify and heal.
To fight respiratory ailments, drink plenty
of wholesome, home-made, steaming
liquids: lemonade, made with fresh lemon
juice, hot water and V2 teaspoon honey;
chamomile tea; fresh veggie broth cooked
for 20 minutes in water, then strained; a
glass of water and a dash of hot pepper
sauce; ginger tea made from 1 teaspoon
peeled, finely grated ginger root, boiling
water, arid steeped for 15 minutes. (Ginger
root is readily available in the grocery store
produce section). For a sore'throat, gargle
with warm salt water several times daily.
Jewish Penicillin, a.k.a. chicken soup, is
a champion: Chicken cooked-in water re-


leases cysteine, a natural amino acid, which
helps thin and expel mucus and detoxify
the body. Add a healthy heap of immune-
boosting fresh garlic, onion, parsley, celery
and carrots and you have a healing-bomb!
The hot soup should be sipped slowly, and
consumed repeatedly throughout the day.
Enhance your immune system with more
medicinal super stars: Capsaicin in hot pep-
pers is an excellent expectorant, so use hot
sauce liberally. Garlic and onion, particu-
larly in their raw state, contain a broad-
spectrum of antibiotic compounds which
act as anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-inflam-
matory agents. Yellow, orange and green
leafy vegetables are rich in beta carotene
and other therapeutic substances. A garlic
or onion breath has an added advantage:
it may keep your mother-in-law or a pesky
neighbor away...
SSome foods are notorious for lowering
immunity. It is therefore wise to shun them
whether you are sick or well. Among the
culprits are processed, fatty or fried fare


and sugar (including soda, candy, artifi-
cial sweeteners, and fruit juices). During
a respiratory sickness, refraining from the
consumption of all dairy products is helpful
because they increase mucus production.
As in any disease, a holistic approach is
necessary for recovery. Respiratory ailments
are no exception. To support the process,
dress warm (including throat and feet). In-
hale steam several times daily, and exercise
lightly to boost circulation. Rest allows the
body to focus its energy on healing. Step
into grandma's pharmacy and try the reci-
pes below: To your health!

Is there such a thing as male menopause?


DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Here's one I bet
you don't see often. I am a male, 62, and
recently have been getting night sweats,
chills, sleeplessness and low-grade fevers.
I read about testosterone supplementa-
tion, which I will not do. I am curious about
male menopause. I have led a very active
and physical life in a professional sport.
Additionally, I had a vasectomy when I was
22. I am-looking for a dietary, vitamin or
homeopathic remedy for relief. -- D.C.
-ANSWER: Men don't experience the sud-
den drop-off in testosterone production
like women do in estrogen production at
the time of their menopause. Further, male
sperm product ion continues t\hile women's
egg production stops at menopause. It is
true that testosterone production lessens
with age. Around age 40, its production
decreases by 1 percent per year.
However, unlike women, relatively few
men suffer any symptoms from this dimin-
ished production. Muscles do shrink with
less testosterone around, and bones lose
their strength. Sometimes erectile dysfunc-
tion is mentioned as a sign of testosterone
deficiency.
If demonstrably low levels of testosterone
are shown and men are having problems
from muscle weakness or sexual perfor-

mance, replacement therapy is a possible
antidote.
I understand that you don't want to take
testosterone. I don't think it would help you
or rid you of your complaints. Night sweats,
chills, sleeplessness and low-grade fever are
not signs of a lack of testosterone. Those
things can be signs of more serious condi-
tions, like hidden infections and undetected
cancers. You should submit to a thorough
examination by your doctor. You should not
try to self-medicate with vitamins, dietary
changes or homeopathic remedies. You
have to find out exactly what's going on.
Your vasectomy has nothing to do with any


of your symptoms.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am 59 and have
erectile dysfunction. Is there another name
for this "menopause"? Does it go away on
its own? Pills from a vitamin store help me
have an erection. -- J.A.
ANSWER: Those who believe in a male
menopause sometimes call it andropause
or viropause. "Andro" is a Greek word for
man; "vir," a Latin word for it.
Erectile dysfunction comes from many
different and unrelated conditions. Rarely is
it the sole sign of testosterone lack. Thyroid
disorders, plugging of arteries to the geni-
tals, diabetes, depression, high blood pres-
sure, high blood pressure medicines and
obesity are the more common reasons for '
the inability to have an erection. ED doesn't
usually go away on its own.
Viagra, Levitra and Cialis have been revo-
lutionary treatments for ED.
Even though your problem no longer is
a concern, you ought to mention it to your
doctor. The doctor can check you for artery
plugging, which; if it exists in genital arter-
ies, also could exist in heart arteries.
'What is the name of.the pill you're taking?
You have all male readers and me inter-
ested. -
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I misplaced an


article you wrote about eye pupil inequalih v..
Will you please repeat it? -- D.A.
ANSWER: I wrote about Adie's pupil,
when one pupil is large than mhe other. It
usually happens to healthy young.women.
Infections, including syphilis and other
conditions, cause the inequality, but they
are in the minority.
Horner's syndrome is another cause of
difference in pupil size. Not only is one
pupil smaller than the other, but facial
sweating on the side of the smaller pupil
stops. There's a slight drooping of the eyelid
over the eye with the smaller pupil. Most
cases of Horner's syndrome are idiopathic,'
meaning they have no discernible cause.
One cause of this syndrome is lung cancer. "
Strokes can cause it, too.

Refrigerator moms


Researchers at Ohio State University say
the quality of the emotional relationship
between a mother and young child may
affect the latter's potential to become obese
during adolescence.
Specifically, they say the lower the quality
of the relationship in terms of the child's
emotional security and the mother's sensi-
tivity, the higher the risk that the child will
be obese by the age of 15.
The study analyzed-data from the Study
of Early Child Care and Youth Development,
which surveyed and followed hundreds of
families living in nine states whose chil-
,dren were born in 1991. Among the key
components of the study was an analysis of
interactions between mothers and children
at three points in time: when the children
were 15, 24 and 36 months old.
The authors found that-among toddlers
who had the lowest-quality emotional
relationships with their mothers, more than
one-quarter were obese as teens, compared
to 13 percent of adolescents who had closer
bonds with their mothers in their younger
years.
They suggested obesity prevention efforts
be expanded to address mother-child bond-
ing and not just focus just on eating and
exercise. The study appears in the January
2012 issue of the journal Pediatrics.

BODY OF KNOWLEDGE
Everybody needs earwax. The substance,


WELL NEWS
Scott LaFee


which doctors more euphemistically call
cerumen, protects the inner ear from inva-
sive bacteria, fungus, dirt, water and even
insects. It also cleans and lubricates the ear
canal. Glands located in the outer third of
the canal produce cerumen. It's primarily a
mixture of shed skin cells and fatty acids.

LIFE IN BIG MACS -
One hour of playing the violin burns 170
calories (based on a 150-pound person) or
the equivalent of 0.2 Big Macs.

STORIES FOR THE WAITING ROOM
If you're actually reading this in a doc-
tor's waiting room, let's hope you didn't
arrive on a medical backboard --you know,
those hard, plastic boards used to stabilize
patients during emergencies before they're
lifted onto a gurney and into the ambu-
lance.
The board's are re-usable and, according
to protocol, are scrubbed down after each
use to avoid exposing subsequent patients
to any diseases, microbes or bodily fluids.
However, when researchers at the Universi--
ty of Miami examined 55 "cleaned" back-
boards in active use, they found all of them
were contaminated with at least 11 different


strains of bacteria and microorganisms.
A solution, though, is already being mar-
keted: a sheath of synthetic, non-porous
medical-grade material that's slipped over
the board and disposed of after one use.


Look for it soon in an ambulance near you.
(Though, here's hoping you won't need to.)

FEED: Cattle benefit from solstice


FROM PAGE 5B
the green team., "It enables us to give to
the community."
However, only one rancher thus far
accepts the food scraps, Bob Massey of
Massey Ranch, who has about 20 head
of cross-bred cattle.
"They call when it's ready, and I come
and get it," said Massey, who appeared
the last day of the winter solstice. "They
load it on my pickup truck."
Members of the green team, who
spent the entire week bagging food
scraps, including those parts not used
for meal preparation as well as food
leftover, followed Massey to his ranch.
Once everyone arrived, Massey backed


his pickup truck to one of several
troughs. The cattle seem to instinctively
know this would be a special meal, ac-
cording'to Massey.
"They love it," he said. "This is their
treat, the 'icing on the cake.'"
However, emptying the contents of
the food scraps was not a simple act
of opening the bags and pouring the
contents into the troughs. Members of
the green team sorted through the food
- not an altogether pleasant task to
pull out that which was not food that
was accidentally mixed into the recycle
mix. While they did that, other green
team members shooed away the cattle
until it was deemed safe.

STEINER
Before the cattle
will be allowed to
feed, green team
members sift for
non-food items that
may be mixed in.

S Andre Claude
Slifts a bag of
food scraps
onto the
back of Bob
Massey's
pickup truck.
The scraps
will be fed to
Massey's 20
head of cattle
at his ranch.

It's time to chow down --- or should we say, "cow" down on the food scraps donated.

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 every Wednesday 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.
--- m -- r .17- "


































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
.: .76 ,..3........7 -dl-.. ....














































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,
