Through fingerprint analysis,

driver of the 2007 Toyota Corolla in
'Tuesday's crash as Efren Martinez-

The wreck, that occurred early

Numbers confirm citrus

greening's destructive swath

Billions of dollars, thousands of jobs lost to disease


Since 2006, the bacterial disease
citrus greening has cost Florida's
economy an estimated $3.63 billion in
lost revenues and 6,611 jobs by reduc-
ing orange juice production, according
to a new study from the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences issues last week.
The study is the first complete assess-
ment of greening's economic impact on
Florida, said Jack Payne, UF senior vice
president for agriculture and natural
resources. He called the study an im-
portant step in the fight against green-
ing, because it quantifies damages and


could show legislators and funding
agencies why the invasive disease is
one of the state's biggest challenges.
"This study shows plainly just how
imperative it is that we find a cure
for citrus greening," Payne said. "We
have dedicated a huge amount of IFAS
resources toward that end, and we are
very appreciative of the significant
support our research is receiving from
the citrus industry. Growers are the
people most obviously impacted, but
the study demonstrates that many

VIEWPOINT



Prison bill latest sham by Florida GOP


We thought we knew how private prison
companies could promise to save Florida
money running our correction institutions.
Cut salaries and benefits for correctional offi-
cers and slash anti-recidivism and educational
programs for inmates. Pretty simple, really.
Silly us.
Oh, private prison operators like GEO Group
and Corrections Corporation of American do
all of the above with the blessing of our elected
officials. But the real trick, we discovered this
week, requires those elected officials to act as
accomplices in a classic bait-and-switch con
game that doesn't save any money and puts
the remaining correctional officers still on the
public payroll at risk.
An email discovered by a Sun Coast Media
Group reporter last week revealed that so-
called close management inmates were trans-
ferred from several state prisons to prisons
that weren't about to be privatized by the state
Legislature.
'As of April 19, 2011, all close management


Our Viewpoint
inmates were removed from Charlotte CI and
the mission was changed," wrote Tommy Mag-
gitas of the department. "There are no facili-
ties in (South Florida) that accommodate close
management inmates."
It wasn't the only operational change made
ahead of a steamroller push by the Legislature
to accommodate their private prison benefac-
tors, who have bestowed hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars in campaign contributions
on their supporters. In testimony on the latest
version of the prison-privatization bill that
passed a Senate committee on a party-line
vote this week, the Orlando Sentinel reported
toilet paper rationing one roll per inmate
every 10 days had led to a rash of clogged
toilets as a result of inmates using scraps of
sheets and clothing when they run out of toilet
paper.
Even the cost-benefit analysis required by


the new bill is a sham. Private operators taking
over state-operated prisons will be allowed to
compare their costs with the state's 2010-11
costs, which won't reflect the recently reduced
expense of housing higher risk inmates. So
when you read about private operators provid-
ing "equal service" at a savings over state-run
prisons, you might want to remember this
line from George Orwell's "'Animal Farm:" "All
animals are equal, but some animals are more
equal than others."
As Lakeland Republican state Sen. Paula
Dockery revealed, the legislative leadership
ignored all of the normal bill-filing deadlines
and bypassed the relevant oversight commit-
tees to ensure the prison bill would have the
smoothest, least-critiqued path to approval.
Along that path, we will hear lawmakers-utter
platitudes like, "I don't have a particular bias
for public or private, but I am charged with
making every dollar count."
That s easy to say if the bill you wrote doesn't
count all the inmates or all the dollars.


Of horns


and dipsticks


As I was Walking up to the front door
the other night, I gave the "lock" but-
ton on my car key fob an extra press,
getting the reassuring honk of the
horn with which we are all familiar.
A moment later, a neighbor a couple
of houses down the street did the
same, sounding the same note.
And I was struck by a question: If
Detroit can manufacture every car
made in America with a horn on the
same pitch, why can't they put the
dipstick in the same place on the same
model of a car two years in a row?
It was not always thus.
For one thing, remote key fobs are a
relatively recent development.
Though today's twenty-somethings
must wince at the thought, you used
to have to push down on the locking
knob, get out of the car, and hold in
the button on the exterior door handle
when slamming the door.
It sounds quite complicated by to-
day's standards, but we coped.
Before that, there were other ways
to lock your car door, but why would
you? Unless you were drafted and
leaving for a two-year tour of active
rHlilitarv service, you just left the keys
i the ignition.
Those were the days when you left
.tour house unlocked, in case your
neighbor needed to get into your
-Wtchen while you were gone to bor-
rbw a cup of sugar.


S.L. Frisbie

slfrisbie@polkcountydemocrat.com


Dipsticks are another story.
When I was a kid, to be called a
.'dipstick" was sort of an insult, sug-
gesting that you were not the sharpest
Crayola in the box.
But the dipstick ofyesteryear was a
user-friendly device. It was straight,
maybe eight or nine inches long, in-
cluding the handle.
It may have moved from place to
place on the engine block from one
year to the next, but it was, as I said,
both straight and short.
Once you found it, it was easy to
use, but you seldom had to use it, un-
less you were broken down on the side
of the road.
In those days, the guy who filled
your car with gas, cleaned your wind-
shield, and checked your tire pressure,
adding air if needed all without
charge or expectation of a tip also
checked your oil level.
If you were a quart low, as was often
the case, he brought you the dipstick
to show you that you needed oil, then


I *g g g^ ^'**


added it for you.
You paid him three bucks or so for
10 gallons of gas and the quart of oil,
and you were on your way.
Today, dipsticks are reminiscent of
the swords used by bullfighters.
They are about the same length,
often curved, and your average van or
minivan vehicles to which I am par-
tial are about as happy to receive
the dipstick as your average bull is to
receive the matador's sword.
The gastroenterologist who gives
you your colonoscopy probably has
trouble checking the oil in his mini-
van. And that is not an encouraging
thought.


(S. L. Frisbie is retired. A number of
years ago, he drove the company mini-
pickup to St. Augustine, and upon
gassing it up, checked the oil level. The
dipstick came out dry, with a light
coating of dust. It took three quarts of
oil, one less than the crankcase capac-
ity. When he returned, he asked the
two women who customarily drove
the delivery truck when they had last
checked the oil.
They looked puzzled. He asked them
if the' knew where the dipstick was.
"Dipstick?" the', replied in unison. A
lesson in oil checking Dipstickery
101 ensued.)

Spend a few minutes


with Melony

By DIANE NICHOLS
DNICHOLS@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
If you have ever wanted to sit down and share a cup of cof-
fee with a county commissioner to tell them what's on your
mind, you're about to get your wish.
'"A Few Minutes With Melony," an informal series of intimate
sessions between the public and County Commissioner Melony
Bell, began two weeks at Perkins Restaurant in Bartow and will
continue in the coming weeks in other places. The sessions are
free and open to anyone who is interested
in sharing thoughts, ideas and to pose
questions in a one-on-one casual forum.
Bell was elected as county commis-
sioner for District 2 in 2010. Prior to
taking her seat as a county official, Bell
served 14 years as a Fort Meade city
commissioner, served,three terms as the
mayor of Fort Meade, was the American
Cancer Society "Relay for Life" chairman
for two years, and has served on the Par-
ish Relations Committee at First United
Methodist Church in Fort Meade where
MELONY BELL she was also a Sunday school teacher.
The announcement for the "A Few Minutes With Melony"
sessions was made at a recent county commission meet-
ing where Bell shared that she is looking forward to meeting
people and listening to what is on their minds, taking notes
and seeing how she can better address their concerns. Bell
plans on holding these meetings in various cities around the
county in an effort to reach people who might not have the
opportunity or feel comfortable with addressing the commis-
sioners at their public meetings.
Bell is married, has two daughters, and enjoys gardening,
reading, tennis and travel.
She will next sit down with those who wish to chat in her
hometown of Fort Meade on Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 7:30 a.m. at
the Broadway Cafe. A future stop in Frostproof will also be
planned.


Employment figures


signal economic recovery


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
The unemployment rate in Florida last week
dropped to its lowest level in 21/2 years, and while
Polk County is still in double digits it feels like a
recovery is coming, the Central Florida Develop-
ment Council economic development director
said.
"We're making progress and moving in the right
direction," said Rodney Carson. "We're making a
turn."
Unemployment in Florida dropped to
9.9 percent. In April 2009 the rate was 9.7 percent.
The current rate is still higher than the national
figure of 8.5 percent.
In Polk County the unemployment rate for
December was at 10.7 percent, down from
11 percent the previous month and down from
12.6 percent in December 2010. Though the
figures show that 28,742 are still looking for jobs,
prospects and hiring have noticeably changed,
Carson said. That figure is down 1,145 from
November.
"Obviously we've been in a transition the last
couple of years, particularly in Polk County," he
said. "But there is more manufacturing hiring and
more industry employment now."
Carson said he's also noticed bank lending has
increased.
"There has been a change in sentiment with
banks. More loans are being made," he said.
Statewide, Gov. Rick Scott, who has billed him-
self as a person who will create jobs in the state,
has shown some glee with the news.
"A good way to judge the direction of Florida's
economy is to look at the percentage of people
who were unemployed one year ago and now
have jobs," Scott said in prepared remarks. "To-
day that number is 2.1 percentage points lower


"Economies don't
stay down forever."
Scott Brown,
Chief economist, Raymond James Financial
than it was in 2010, meaning more of Florida's
families are finding jobs."
However, some economists cautioned against
politicians taking too much credit for a natural
economic cycle of recovery.
"Economies don't stay down forever," said Scott
Brown, chief economist with Raymond James
Financial. "Recessions are typically followed by
recovery, and this was obviously a major reces-
sion, so the recovery is a lot more gradual than
usual."
The state's workforce grew by 7,300 jobs in
December, raising the total job count by 113,900
for the year.
The jobs market is still not doing totally well,
especially given tens of thousands of discouraged
workers have temporarily stopped looking for
work and are no longer counted among the job-
less, Brown said. Add in discouraged workers and
part-timers unable to find full-time work, and the
unemployment rate would be 17.8 percent.
But there is some optimism that can be taken
with the numbers as confidence has risen and
the housing crisis, which is among the worst in
the nation, is somewhat recovering.
"Some of the fundamental ingredients for a
sustained recovery are now in place," said Mekael
Teshome, an economist with PNC Financial
Services Group, who tracks the Florida market.
"You have stronger confidence; you have stron-
ger corporate profits; and the housing market
depression is unwinding."

Researching and writing a book about
the history of Frostproof is certainly a
challenge.
The other day, I was chatting with a
long-time resident and mentioned that
I would like to read the series on the
history of Frostproof that appeared in
the 1955-56 Highland News that was
the name of Frostproof's old newspa-
per. I have a copy of the first article in
the series, but was missing the rest. The
series was written by Major Edward
Keenan, a renowned expert on the
Seminole Indians and local resident.
He was a thorough researcher and the
series was bound to be accurate.
I went on to explain that I had been
unable to locate certain 1950-era


newspapers at the Frostproof Histori-
cal Museum, the Latt Maxcy Memorial
Library, the Frostproof News archives,
or the Bartow Historical Museum. He
told me that up until a few years ago,
his wife had saved all of the newspapers
from the time they moved to Frostproof
in the early 195.0s, but added they had
been thrown away.
That gave me an idea. Maybe there
were other residents who saved news-
papers, or at the very least, interest-
ing articles. So, here I am, writing this
article asking for help.
If you have any of the following items
and would allow me to read them,
please give me a call at (863) 635-2523.
Or if you want to donate them to the
Frostproof Historical Museum, they
will be scanned and then bound for
safe-keeping, and I can help you with


that too.
We are missing all editions of the
Highland News dated 1914-1938 and
1955-1960; also the Frostproof News for
1963-1964. If you don't have complete
newspapers, maybe you have loose
articles from these same time periods.
Items of interest would include the
following topics: all obituaries, story
of the accident and death in February
1935 of Frostproof's police chief Wil-
liam E. 'Pogy Bill' Collins, articles telling
about the 'old days' in Frostproof,
names of Frostproof's town officials for
1928 and 1929, grand opening of the
Ramon Theater 1926, grand opening of
the Highland Hotel 1923, tent theater


in Frostproof early 1920s, building of
Thompson building 1916, the impact
that World War I had on Frostproof and
the operation of the Red Cross here
in 1918, incorporation of the town of
Frostproof 1918 including the advertise-
ment of the meeting to vote on incor-
poration, fires and the fire department,
church building and church news,
effects of the depression on Frostproof
and the WPA 1930s, businesses and
business ads, school buildings and
school news.
Thank you for your support. The
proceeds from the sale of the book will
benefit the restoration of the old high
school.

Miller brings unique act to Ramon on Saturday


If you don't believe that Laurie
Miller is a unique talent, listen to New
York City critic Nancy Jones.
"Laurie Miller is nothing short of a
singing-dancing miracle up there on


PHOTOS PROVIDED


Laurie Miller will bring her acclaimed one-
woman show to the Ramon this Saturday.


the stage," Jones said. "We become a
rapt audience as she relates the sweet
and funny story of a consummate tal-
ent named Laurie, who, from an early
age was performing for family, friends
and later the world. She can do it all
- the showgirl high kicks, the love
songs, and her signature showstop-
pers as she belts out song after song
and becomes (before our very eyes!)
Cher, Barbara, Judy or Liza. Don't miss
this!"
In some ways, Miller's one-woman
revue is a return to the Ramon's
roots, when Vaudeville acts regularly
stopped when the theater was opened
in the mid 1920s.
Originally from Miami, Miller
spends most of her time performing
on some of the world's most presti-
gious cruise lines as well as at corpo-
rate events and theatrical productions
worldwide.
Her professional appearances range
from musical theater to lavish revues,
intimate jazz clubs and major label
recording projects.
She is known in the industry as one
of the original members and creators
of the pop-hit group Expose. Their de-
but album "Exposed" is documented
in the Rolling Stone Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame history book for having more
Top 10 hits than the Beatles or the
Supreme's had on their debut album.
Laurie is also the CEO and found-
er of XICA Productions. Known


internationally, XICA Productions is
acclaimed for creating unique and ar-
tistic atmosphere in diverse entertain-
ment venues using unusual entertain-
ers, creative lighting and decor.
Wrote Porthole Magazine of her
show, "Guest entertainer Laurie Miller
- whose gutsy presentation calls to
mind a very young Barbara Streisand
- shined above the rest. I'd like to
watch entertainers of Ms. Miller's cali-
ber more frequently a truly original
performance."
Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at
the door for Saturday's show, which
starts at 7 p.m. For more information,

Action was fast and furious when the Green Dragons hosted the Class 2A District 10 tournament. Frostproof bumped Lake Placid from the tourney last week.


Bulldogs snag runner-up spot in soccer districts


By DAVID H. RINALD
NEWS@ FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
Despite an incredibly valiant effort,
the Lake Placid Green Dragon boys'
soccer team went down to a 5-4 loss to
the Frostproof Bulldogs Tuesday night,
Jan. 24, and were eliminated from the
Class 2A, District 10 tournament. This
match was the third between the two
teams this season, with each winning
one from the other. The loss rang
down the curtain on the soccer season


for the Lake Placid boys.
The Bulldogs "owned" the first half,
scoring four goals, three of them com-
ing from Humberto Alvarado in a hat
trick with Roberto Aguilar adding the
fourth.
The second half belonged, however,
to the Green Dragons who came up
just short of overhauling Frostproof
and taking the win. With 12 minutes
gone in the half, Jorge Gomez pro-
duced Lake Placid's initial score. Jose
Hernandez promptly blasted in a


second goal for Lake Placid, making it
4-2 in favor of Frostproof. A direct kick
brought about by a Frostproof foul
allowed Jorge Medina to notch Lake
Placid's third goal.
Frostproof came back to score the
winning goal with a little less than five
minutes remaining as Rhett Pooley
knocked one home, but Lake Placid
kept battling and Osvaldo Orduna tal-
lied during "extra time."
The clock, however, was not Lake
Placid's friend, and time ran out with


the Dragons still "knocking at the
door," desperately seeking a chance to
tie the game.
Hardee defeated Frostproof, 3-2, in
the district title game. The Bulldogs
were up for much of the game as
Pooley and Alvarado got single mark-
ers. Hardee scored twice late to rally
for the win. Frostproof moves on to
regional play, however, and will meet
Berkley Prep, in Tampa in the first
round of regional play. That game was
last night, too late for News deadlines.


A Green Dragon was sent
tumbling when his header
was met by a Frostproof
defender.

Student achievement,


higher teacher pay budget goals


District looks at new way to juggle finances


By PEGGY KEHOE
PKEHOE @POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
Polk County Schools should set priori-
ties and budget to achieve those goals, a
consultant told School Board members
and staff in a work session Friday.
Jim Hamilton, a former Hillsborough
County principal and deputy superin-
tendent, facilitated the workshop. He
now owns HBEC Group Inc. in Pensacola
and is a consultant for the Florida School
Board Association.
School Superintendents Sherrie Nickell
suggested looking at a budgeting ap-
proach that is "priority driven." With
changes to mandates and funds occurring
frequently, the budget is an "evolutionary
process." Within the span of one day the
budget numbers change in Tallahassee.
"I have heard from the board loud and
clear that we are focused on advancing
student achievement in Polk County," she
said. Polk will probably not be receiving a
huge influx of funds, so the district has to
find ways to help students achieve goals.
"The budget is not a document; it is a
process," she said, "a little bit different way
of thinking."
Polk County "really is a very pleasant
living and working environment," Ham-
ilton said. "Prospects for the future are as
bright as we can make them.... Things are
never as good as we like and never as bad
as we fear."
School systems can no longer have
business as usual, Nickell said. "It's a new
world. The state has created that for us,"
with new FCAT cut scores and a new
teacheLevaluation system among the
-d-ianges.
The new FCAI.scoring levels may mean
more students have to take remedial
classes, which will cost more. The new
teacher evaluation program is a "game
changer," Nickell said, a "big, different way
of looking at things."
Major initiatives also come from
Washington. Hamilton called No Child
Left Behind "the largest intrusion of the
federal government in local education in
the history of the country." That and the
state Constitutional amendment reducing
classroom size have been big budget driv-
ers the last eight years," Hamilton said.
"This is a sea change" for those in
public education, Nickell said. In the past
kids went to the school they were zoned
for. Now there are many options to tra-
ditional public schools, such as charter,
private, virtual and home education.
Individual public schools need to market
themselves, she said.


In this market-driven world, 12 percent of
Polk's students have left for charter schools,
she said. "Many are top performers."
"It doesn't matter if you like it or not,"
Hamilton said, adding, "There's no reason
on God's green earth why we shouldn't
have the best school system in the U.S.
right here."
While the state has its priorities, Nickell
said, "we must focus locally on our stu-
dents to ensure they have a bright future."
If students don't have the tools they
need, "Their future won't be a good place,"
Hamilton said. "Kids will need to be more
like Steve Jobs rather than just taking a job."
Based on the district's current strategic
plan, Hamilton suggested two priorities
be focused on in the budget: academics
and instruction, with the goals of:
Improving student achievement and
increasing the graduation rate to within
3 percentage points of the state rate, and
By 2013-14, achieving a district grade
of A, and increasing the number ofA and
B schools from 56 to 70 percent.
Strategies to achieve this include:
improving teacher salaries to be com-
petitive with Osceola and Hillsborough
counties; establish a performance-based
salary structure according to Florida
statutes; create a rigorous academic
program for gifted students in elemen-
tary and middle schools; extend career
academies into selected middle schools;
create peer assistance and support for
teachers and principals; move D or F

schools to a 200-day school year, with
each day extended by one hour.
These strategies would mean squeeze
some $75 million from the current budget
to use for teacher raises, Hamilton said.
Student performance and salary
structure are inextricably linked, Nickell
asserted.
"Without the best, brightest and most
enthusiastic teachers, we won't improve
student achievement."
As students are .pushed forward from
the top and bottom, the middle will im-
prove, Hamilton said. "Every school has a
top quartile and they should be treated as
such" with advanced and gifted classes.
This new budgeting process will
need participation from the board and
district administrators, Nickell said. A
committee will be named to start the


new budget process.
Hamilton urged having a list of ex-
penses and revenues, and the priorities
for spending, by February.
"We haven't done it this way before,"
Nickell noted. "It's not accounting; it's
visionary budgeting that serves as a tool
to get us to our priorities."
Board members were enthusiastic
about the prospects. Chairman Hazel
Sellers agreed Hamilton "has reener-
gized us. "We're going to do some things
people won't like, but we'll be able to
explain why we need to do these things,
and what the results will be, increasing
student achievement."
Tim Harris agreed it was "an energiz-
ing morning. I wish all the employees
could have heard it," and caught the
enthusiasm.

breakthrough against new citrus threat


University of Florida researchers
have discovered a key amino acid es-
sential for human nutrition is also an
effective insecticide against caterpil-
lars that threaten the citrus industry.
The Lime Swallowtail, or Citrus
Swallowtail, is a well-known agricul-
tural pest from southern Asia discov-
ered in the Caribbean in 2006, and
researchers say its potential impact
on the U.S. citrus industry is cause for
serious concern.
"Everything that's in the Caribbean
eventually gets to Florida Florida is
an invasive magnet," said UF lepidop-
terist Delano Lewis, lead author of the
study published in the current issue of
the Journal of Economic Entomology.
"That's why we're trying to make the
first strike to see how to stop it."
Experiments conducted on the
UF campus at the Florida Museum
of Natural History's McGuire Center
for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity and
the College of Medicine show when
methionine is sprayed on leaves it is
100 percent effective in killing lar-
vae related to the Lime Swallowtail
caterpillars within two to three days.
If not controlled, the caterpillars can
completely defoliate young wild lime
plants.
Because the Lime Swallowtail, Prin-
ceps (Papilio) demoleus, is invasive
and cannot be legally brought into the
U.S., researchers experimented using
a genetically related surrogate with a
similar life history and appetite for cit-
rus, the Giant Swallowtail, Heraclides
(Papilio) cresphontes. Because these
pest caterpillars have the same body
structure and biology, researchers are
confident methionine will also control
the Lime Swallowtail, Lewis said.
"Its effectiveness is based on the
biochemistry of the insect gut, so
although this work was done on a sur-
rogate, the methionine will block the
ion channel in the same way," Lewis
said.
Methionine is needed in the hu-
man diet for many reasons, including
protein-building and metabolism. It is
environmentally safe and harmless to
citrus plants, mammals and birds.
"It's a very curious phenomenon to
have this nutrient amino acid that hu-
mans can't live without, yet at the con-
centrations we put on the leaves, it is
toxic to crop-destructive caterpillars,"
said study co-author Bruce Stevens,
professor of physiology and functional
genomics in the UF College of Medi-
cine. "It's a completely different class
of pesticides that has not been seen

the state.


before most are toxic to not only the
pest, but to people and animals, too."
Stevens first discovered the pesti-
cide properties of methionine while
cloning genes that regulate amino acid
metabolism in 1998. Working with
co-author James Cuda of UF's depart-
ment of entomology and nematology,
Stevens later found this amino acid to
be effective against yellow fever mos-
quito larvae, tomato hornworm and
Colorado potato beetle.
Methionine disrupts an ion chan-
nel that controls nutrient absorption
in larvae with an alkaline intestine,
such as in caterpillars of the Citrus
Swallowtail. In 2004 and 2007, Stevens
obtained two patents for the use of
methionine as a pesticide, through the
UF Office of Technology Licensing.
"The methionine is sprayed on the
leaves, and when the caterpillars begin


to eat the leaves, they ingest the com-
pound it's not in the plant itself,"
Lewis said. "Once they take those first
few bites, they don't feed again and
remain stationary until they die."
Methionine is low-cost and serves
as fertilizer if it reaches the ground
because it's a biodegradable nitrogen
source, Stevens said. The amino acid is
mass produced and has been used as
a nutritional supplement in outdoor
livestock feed since the 1960s. The U.S.
Department of Agriculture recently
approved the use of methionine for
organic poultry production.
"This is a neat idea and I'm hoping
that more work will be done on this
in the future because there's a lot of
potential there," said John Ruberson,
a professor in the entomology depart-
ment at the University of Georgia,
who was not involved in the study.


"The one challenge I can see from a
grower's perspective is that it tends to
work kind of slowly. Typically, it takes
two to three days to kill the insect, but
they do show that [insect] feeding .
reduced, which is a good thing."
Patent rights for the use of methio-
nine to control turf and ornamental
pests have been licensed to Phoenix
Environmental Care LLC, which is
developing a pest control product.
While researchers are unsure how
the Lime Swallowtail reached the
Caribbean, its proximity poses a
potential threat to Central and South
American citrus industries, as well.
"We suspect someone could have
brought them to release the adult but-
terflies in weddings, or perhaps they
arrived with imported citrus stock,"
Lewis said. "Regardless, it's in the
Caribbean and it's a very strong flyer."


Charter, private schools ask for FHSAA alternative


By BRANDON LARABEE
NEWS SERVICE FLORIDA


Prodded by a number of private
schools chafing at the authority of the
Florida High School Athletic Asso-
ciation, lawmakers are considering a
measure that would allow private and
charter schools to break away and cre-
ate their own, parallel organization.
The bill (SB 1704), which passed the
Senate Education Committee on 4-1
vote Monday, would create the "Sun-
shine Independent Athletic Associa-
tion." Under revisions approved by the
committee, private and charter schools
would be free to choose either mem-
bership in the FHSAA or the SIAA.
"This is a choice," said Sen. Steve
Wise, R-Jacksonville, who sponsored
the measure. "It's not a monopoly."
The legislation stems in part from
clashes between some private schools
and the FHSAA, based in part on the
,..,ic:i;il iii'.. rules barring private
schools from ai'crniiinii students from
public teams. But some private schools


also say they have other grievances,
some of them stretching back years,
with the association.
Representatives of those schools say
they have a hard time lining up op-
ponents and participating in tourna-
ments. Wise's bill would prevent the
FHSAA from prohibiting competition
with schools from the SIAA.
Tom Parlier, principal of the West
Oaks Academy in Orlando, said the
school which is about 95 percent
black was almost kept from play-
ing recently at a United Negro College
Fund" event when officials balked at
overseeing a game with a non-FHSAA
member.
Parlier said events like that offered
students a chance to show their skills
and potentially snag an athletic
scholarship.
"This is their way out," he said.
"They are, according to them, denied a
chance to even compete in the United
Negro College Fund [event]."
Parlier said his school left the FHSAA
over a dispute that dated back to the


mid-1990s, when officials with the
association pushed ahead with a fine
for a violation by the school that was
higher than the rules called for.
Roger Dearing, executive director
of the association, said many of the
schools that left were irked by "reason-
able" limits on who can play in what
is supposed to be an amateur, high
school setting. He said private schools
are free to set up an organization at any
time.
"But it doesn't take legislation to do
it," he said. "A private association may
start their own association and play
among themselves."
Dearing said FHSAA.members
wouldn't be allowed to play the schools,
though, unless and until the private
schools agreed to abide by the same
national rules for high school athletics
that members of the organization have
to follow.
Many private schools oppose the
legislation. James Herzog, associate
director for education of the Florida
Catholic Conference, said some private


schools feared even a voluntary mea-
sure could be a "Texas two-step" leading
to a mandate.
"They feel like this could be a first
step, and something else could happen
a year or two later," he said.
But Wise said he was worried about
preserving programs that often keep
kids in school and out of trouble and
suggested the FHSAA might have other
motivations.
"They're here to protect their turf,"
he said. "And I'm here to protect the
kids and to make sure that they have
the opportunity to get scholarships and
better their life."
The House K-20 Competitive-
ness Subcommittee is scheduled on
Tuesday to take up a.proposed com-
mittee substitute to the House com-
panion measure (HB 1403) that would
substantially weaken the bill. That
measure would double the maximum
size of private schools whose students
can participate in public highschool
athletics and ease the transfer rules for
student-athletes.

fewer oranges are harvested, there are
fewer dollars circulating in our state's
economy."
First detected in Florida in 2005,
greening causes citrus trees to drop
fruit prematurely and eventually kills
the trees. The disease is caused by a
bacterium, and was first described in
1919 in China. The bacterium is trans-
mitted by an invasive insect, the Asian
citrus psyllid.
The study compares actual harvests
of oranges used to make juice with
projected harvests that would have
taken place if greening had never struck
Florida groves; it covers the grow-
ing seasons from 2006-2007 through
2010-2011. During those five years, the
disease caused substantial crop losses,
said citrus economist Tom Spreen, a
professor with the UF/IFAS food and
resource economics department.
The state's juice-orange harvest for
the period was 734 million boxes, and
would have been an estimated 951
million boxes without greening, Spreen
said. To develop economic impact

In the show's first three years, judges
were only allowed to vote on one win-
ner in each category each night. Now, if
there are two deserving "finals worthy"
acts in the same age category on the
same night, judges will have the option
of passing both on through the finals.
"In the past, some really talented per-
formers who deserved a chance to be in
the finals didn't make it, largely based
on the luck of the draw," noted Rotary
Club Past President Brian Ackley. "This
works well since it gives judges a little
more leeway in picking finalists, and
making sure our finals night is better
and more competitive than ever. It just
makes it fairer and more competitive."
A complete set of rules and eligibility
requirements, as well as a breakdown of
the different age categories, are out-

department, analyzed both scenarios
using statistical models and data on the
citrus industry and Florida's economy.
To estimate lost revenues and jobs,
the economists took into account direct
losses to growers, indirect losses to in-
dustries affiliated with citrus production
and the resulting cuts in spending by
employee households and government.
When focusing strictly on juice-
orange production during that five-year
period, Florida growers lost $1.36 bil-
lion in revenues, and 2,125 permanent
jobs were lost.
Florida Citrus Mutual, the state's larg-
est citrus grower organization, funded
the study. The study did not address
production of other citrus varieties,
such as grapefruit, or oranges sold fresh
to consumers, Spreen said.
Florida is the nation's largest citrus
producer and the world's second-larg-
est orange juice producer, after Brazil.
Florida's citrus industry generates
about $8.9 billion a year, mainly from
orange juice production.

COUNTY REPORT


Horse rescue shelter lives on faith


Feb. 18 competition to help raise needed funds


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
It's a leap of faith to take on
the care and feeding of some
25 or 30 large animals that all
do what? Eat like horses. But
that's what Dawn Bazemore
and a handful of dedicated
volunteers do at Faith Equine
Rescue.
Started barely a year ago
when an earlier Polk County
horse rescue organization
folded, Faith Equine Rescue is
built on that ... faith. The faith
of Bazemore and her family is
what keeps the horse rescue
going. Faith that volunteers will
come, faith that the vet bills
won't be too high, faith that do-
nations keep coming and faith
that the next call for help can
be met and most of all, faith
that "forever homes" can be
found for the horses, Bazemore
says.
Bazemore's childhood love
of horses has never faded and
as the economy worsened and
finances tightened, she saw
more and more animals being
neglected and abused, with no
hope after the earlier rescue
organization folded.
"I knew I had to do some-
thing," she said recently while
keeping watch on her most
recent acquisitions, part of a
22-animal herd of Arabians and
mixed breed horses. "And Faith
Equine Rescue was the answer
I found. I just had to do it."
Fortunately, Bazemore isn't
alone. There's her family, hus-
band Lane, daughter Elizabeth
and son Tyler plus 10 stalwart
volunteers like Bobbi Zabrocki
and her husband Daryl. There's

Lane's daughter, or the horse she is snuggling with.


also her experienced farrier Jan
Nemeth and her associate Deb
Papovich, all of whom were
busy during a recent weekend
visit to one of several rescue
sites in south and southwest
Polk.
The Ewell Road five-acre
location was leased from Larry
and Jeannie Sturgis after an
earlier fundraiser and provides
a temporary home for eight of
the recently-acquired animals.


"There are four stalls here
and two more shelters, so these
are pretty comfortable," Baze-
more explains. The most recent
acquisitions were not abused,
but had been somewhat
neglected, Bazemore added.
They had belonged to a woman
near Bartow who just could no
longer afford to keep them, she
said.
"These guys were pretty
much pasture ornaments, and


most of them were pretty wild.
We're having to train them to
respond to a halter, a human
touch and ultimately be broken
to saddle," she says. "It's an
undertaking that will prob-
ably take us about six months
before we can begin adopting
them out." And, at about $100 a
month per horse just for feed.
While talking, Bazemore was
keeping an eye on Nemeth
who was trying to calm down
a mixed breed quarter horse
who wasn't keen on having a
pedicure.
"That's a perfect example
of what we find," Bazemore
said. "This horse has probably
never had its feet tended to, so
it takes more time to get the
basics done."
Walking to another section of
the five acres, Bazemore points
out two Arabians, one with its
eyes shielded with a fly screen.
"These two are a bit under-
weight, but seem pretty healthy
other than that. One is blind in
one eye, but the other is fine.
These two have always been
together, so we'll be trying to
find someone willing to take
them both."
Both horses were feeding
eagerly on newly-strewn hay
and oblivious to their former
homelessness.
"All they know is that now
they will be fed and cared for,"
Bazemore explains.
Bazemore found these latest
acquisitions through the Polk
County Sheriff's Department,
but others have been acquired
through calls from the public.
"We take the horses and re-
habilitate them if they need it,


bring them up to their proper
weight and get them healthy.
Then the search for new homes
begins."
The latest herd is comprised
primarily of the Arabians, most
of which are at least 11 years old,
she says. Horses are harder to
place the older they get, she adds.
"There's no way we'll find
anyone who wants a horse that
old," she said. "But she's a good
old girl, and we'll take care of
her."
Another immediate problem
with this latest bunch, accord-
ing to Bazemore, is their breed.
"The breed of choice in this
area is a quarter horse, so their
placement may take us more
time," she said.
When horses are acquired
by Faith Equine Rescue, they
are all given new names, to "go
with their new start in life."
And, it's not just show up and
take a horse home.
"We do a reference check; we
check to see if their property
is adequate to support a horse
and then watch their interac-
tion with the animal," Baze-
more said.
But it all costs money. To help
Bazemore's group is hosting
a fundraiser on Feb. 18 at the
Bartow Horse Arena on U.S.
Highway 17 South where there
will be shows, English, Trail and
Western classes, speed events,
and other competitions.
"It's thanks to people like
Beverly Lay and the Dan An-
drews Family Foundation that
we're able to do what we all
love help horses in need,"
Bazemore says.
That, and a lot of faith.


Career academies add value to Polk education I ., I


By PEGGY KEHOE
PKEHOE @POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
A graduation rate that's 17 to 18 percent higher than
traditional high schools is just one of the pluses that
gets members of the Polk Academies District Advisory
Council excited about Polk County's nearly 40 career
academies.
Some members of the council met with different
school board members at lunches at The Stanford Inn
in Bartow last week to discuss their plans for creat-
ing awareness of the academies and how to help the
program grow.
After a visit to Nashville, where the school system
is filled with "wall-to-wall" academies, essentially a
number of different units or pods within each school,
members of the council and the school system's Work-
force Education Department came back excited about
the possibilities for Polk County. They hope board
members will visit Nashville's school system in March,
and said Nasvhille leaders want to visit Polk County's
academies, as well.
Although commonly called career academies, these
schools within schools could be based on arts, such as
band, and other interests. Students would have com-
mon academic classes such as English, but also have
their "pods" to belong to.
They have been spreading their message around the
county, speaking to Polk Vision, the county commis-
sion and other groups to create awareness of what
academies are about and how they're helping redesign
high schools, Debbie Burdett of United Way of Central
Florida told School Board Members Dick Mullenax
and Tim Harris last Wednesday. They met with Chair-
man Hazel Sellers, Vice Chairman Lori Cunningham
and Member Frank O'Reilly the day before.


Also at Wednesday's meeting were John Small,
Polk Schools' senior director of workforce education;
Ashley Barnett and Mark Dunsford, from that depart-
ment; and Naomi Boyer of Polk State College.
"We need to make the community more aware of
the value academies add" and "how they help kids,"
Burdett said, noting the county commission and Polk
Vision weren't aware that Polk County already has
nearly 40 academies now.
Their graduation rate is about 91 percent versus
73-74 percent in traditional high schools, Burdett said.
Groups like Polk Vision and the Florida Chamber are
realizing that we have a talent gap statewide and Polk
County's academies line up perfectly with their plans.
Kids who can't read by third grade often fail to catch
up, often turn to drugs, drop out of school, and popu-
late future prisons, Burdett said.
"Why not let Polk be known for redesigning high
schools and not have to build more jails?"
Small said they visited the Nashville school system
because many of its demographics are similar to Polk
County's. In 2006 Nashville was awarded a $6.5 mil-
lion Smaller Learning Communities grant from the
U.S. Department of Education and used it to restruc-
ture the whole high school system.
Within five years they changed all their high schools
into wall-to-wall academies, Small explained, not
necessarily career academies, but small learning com-
munities, somewhat similar to Polk County's Harrison
Center for the Performing Arts, International Bacca-
laureate.and Summerlin Academy.
Every child in the Nashville school system is in an
academy. These are just geared to technical careers,
but cover a variety of interests, including academics.
"They've had tremendous results," Small said, rais-
ing the graduation rate more than 10 percent in five

years. The system had one of the lowest graduation
rates in the country for its size and now its 83 percent.
It was named a Ford Next Generation Learning Hubs
in 2011, one of seven in the country.
"We're this huge system, with a lot of entities push-
ing in lots of directions," Small said. "If you look at
what we've done fragmented, think what we could
have done together."
Polk County has gone up to 5,500 students in acad-
emies now, he said. "We have some academies that
are probably as good, if not better, than anywhere else
in the country."
Business partners have helped accomplish this, he
noted.
The academies are "one of the greatest things we
can market in the county," Burdett said.

Man charged in priest's



death found dead in jail


By HOLBROOK MOHR
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
JACKSON, Miss. A
man accused of killing
a Roman Catholic priest
and setting off in the
victim's car for a family
vacation to Walt Disney
World was found dead in
his prison cell Thursday,
Jan. 26, in an apparent
suicide, corrections of-
ficials and his attorney
said.
Jeremy Wayne Manieri,
33, was charged with
shooting the Rev. Ed
Everitt of Hammond, La.,
in July 2011 at a beach
house in Waveland, Miss.
Corrections officials
said Manieri was found
dead in his cell at the
Central Mississippi
Correctional Facility in
Rankin County. Details
of his death were not
released. Manieri's at-
torney, Brian Alexander,
confirmed the death.
Manieri was a handy
man at the house used
by a group of priests as
a beach retreat. Manieri
had claimed he shot


Everitt after he passed
out from alcohol and
marijuana use and found
the priest fondling him.
But investigators believe
robbery was the motive,
because Florida authori-
ties said Manieri had the
priest's car, gun and wal-
let when he was arrested.
Authorities said Man-
ieri's former wife and two
children were with him
when he was arrested at a
hotel near Winter Haven.
They had purchased tick-
ets to Walt Disney World
but never made it to the
resort, investigators said.

TALLAHASSEE Teachers would
grade not just students, but the students'
parents, under a bill that cleared its first
House committee Wednesday on a party
line vote.
The measure, which gained national
attention when it was filed last year, would
have teachers of students up through
grade five evaluate each parent's involve-
ment in their kids' education, and require
districts to report on parental involvement
to the state.
"Studies have shown that the most
important thing in the life of a child is the
parent," bill sponsor Rep. Kelli Stargel said.
"We've done a lot in education to focus
on making sure we have quality and high
standards. But all of those things are only
going to be as successful as the input and
the involvement of the parent."
The Lakeland Republican said she's got-
ten feedback from many teachers who like
the idea of being able to grade parents.
Florida has been assigning schools
and districts letter grades for more than a
decade. Last year, legislators approved a
new law linking teacher pay in part to how
students perform on tests.
But during that debate over merit pay,
many teachers complained that often
a student's performance is helped or
hindered more by their parents than by
anything the teacher does. Essentially,
many said, lawmakers were making it
so that teachers could be limited in their
ability to get pay raises by the bad, or
indifferent, parenting of the students they
teach while making higher pay available
to teachers who happen to teach kids with
good parents.
Under the proposal (HB 543), a teacher
would be able to rate a parent on a scale
of satisfactory to unsatisfactory, based on
a child's attendance, whether or not the
parent has signed all of the emergency
contact forms and whether the parent
has responded to requests for meetings
or communications. Only the parents of
elementary school students would receive


the rating, and it would be given to parents
along with their child's report cards.
"It's a difficult situation, because we
have free public education, and we can't
demand too terribly much of our parents,"
said Stargel, whose five children have gone
to public schools. "That's why there are no
repercussions in the bill. And I can't punish
a parent for not doing something."
The bill was approved 10-3 Wednesday
in the House K-20 Competitiveness Com-
mittee, but has several more stops before
the floor. A Senate companion bill carried
by Steven Wise, R-Jacksonville, has not had
any committee hearings yet.
The measure has the support of parents
like Christy Crump who has two daughters
enrolled in public schools in Leon County.
"I think it's wonderful, because I would
get an A-plus," Crump said. "Parental
involvement is extremely important. The
first thing we tell a teacher is, 'We know
what your job is, but we also know what
our job is.' It's not just the teacher's respon-
sibility.
While that's been an argument long held
by teachers' groups in opposition to efforts
to more closely tie pay to student perfor-
mance, the state's largest teacher union
opposes the Stargel bill.
Florida Education Association spokes-
man Mark Pudlow said while his group
may agree with the general idea of trying
to foster better parental involvement in
education, the union is worried that the
information used to grade parents, would
also be used against teachers.
"We're concerned that it's going to give
the department another way to grade
schools and disparage public education,"
Pudlow said.
The bill is opposed by some Democrats,
including Rep. Gwendolyn Clarke-Reed, a
former teacher.
"I just do not like to put everyone in the
same box. Sometimes there's an involve-
ment with parents that we don't under-
stand, but the child and the parent un-
derstand," said Clarke-Reed, D-Deerfield
Beach. "So I just don't subscribe to the idea
of grading parents."

MCT NEWSPAPERS
Nearly 14 percent of orange juice
imported to the U.S. since early this
month has been seized by the Food
and Drug Administration because it
contained trace amounts of a fungi-
cide, carbendazim, according to the
agency.
FDA officials said the juice was safe
to drink but that carbendazim, used
to combat a fungus that leaves black
spots on tree leaves, was not allowed
in the U.S.
"We don't feel that this is a safety
problem," FDA spokeswoman Siob-
han DeLancey said last week. "This is
more of a regulatory issue.
"We don't have any plans to call for
a wholesale recall of orange juice."
The FDA has also been testing
domestically produced orange juice
products. DeLancey said results of
those tests would be released next
week.
The agency began testing imported
orange juice in liquid and concentrate
form Jan. 4. Beverage giant Coca-Cola
Co., which distributes orange juice
under the Minute Maid and Simply
Orange brands, said it had found the
fungicide in its juice and rival juices,
and reported the findings to the
agency.
Coca-Cola spokesman Dan Schafer
declined to comment Friday except
to say, "All our products are safe and
wholesome, and consumers can enjoy
them with confidence."
The FDA has collected samples
from 80 shipments of juice and con-
centrate since testing began. Six of the
seized shipments were from Canada
and five from Brazil, DeLancey said.
She said she did not know the volume


of product in those shipments.
The U.S. imported $438 million
worth of orange juice in 2010, ac-
cording WiserTrade, a Massachusetts-
based research organization.
Juice Product Association spokes-
woman Stephanie Meyering said it
was too soon to know how the FDA's
action might affect orange juice sales
or prices in the U.S.
The FDA said it would hold on to
the seized orange juice products for
up to 90 days. The shippers can take
the products back during that time or
destroy them under agency supervi-
sion, DeLancey said.
FDA seized shipments it tested
that had a minimum of 10 parts per
billion of carbendazim. The agency
said the highest level of carbendazim
discovered was in a shipment that
came from Brazil it had 52 parts
per billion.
DeLancey said the federal Envi-
ronmental Protection Agency has
determined that carbendazim poses
no health risks at up to 80 parts per
billion.
The Juice Products Association said
the standard the FDA is following is
too strict for concentrated products.
"The juice industry endorses and
applauds FDA's oversight of imported
orange juice concentrate," the trade
group said in a statement. "How-
ever, juice processors maintain that
evaluating orange juice on an 'as
consumed' basis rather than as con-
centrate, which no one drinks as is, is
the logical and practical way to assure
safety for the consumer."
The trade group said concentrate
should not be seized unless it's found
to have the fungicide at 60 parts per
billion.


Polytechnic reorganization


saves $1 million


By KIM WALMATH
TAMPA BAY TIMES
USF Polytechnic's
interim chancellor wasn't
kidding when he said
he would work to save
money at the Lakeland
campus a campus
mired in controversy
since its prior leader led
a push to make it a sepa-
rate institution.
David Touchton has
identified savings of
about $1 million after
eliminating several
international programs
and administrative posi-
tions, USF announced
Wednesday.
The 1,300-student
branch campus in
Lakeland will suspend
its initiatives in France,
Asia and Latin America,
Touchton said in a
news release. And these
positions have been cut:
director of extended
university/global part-
nerships Asia; director
of global partnerships
France/Soft Landing pro-
gram/co-director Florida
France Linkage Institute;
the senior grant special-
ist who focused on in-
ternational recruitment
in Central and Latin
America; the director of
strategy and innovation;
and senior adviser to the


regional chancellor.
"The USF Board of
Trustees has identified
fiscal responsibility as
an important task with
which I am charged,"
Touchton said. "In the
last several weeks, I have
spent much of my time
meeting with key staff to
analyze our institutional
priorities and look for
ways to increase effi-
ciency."
In the months leading
up to a vote to delay USF
Poly's independence,
there was much scru-
tiny over the spending
habits of former USF
Poly chancellor Marshall
Goodman. He pledged
half a million dollars
for a video about the
new campus' construc-
tion. He spent $10,000
on life-sized science
fiction statues, including
Darth Vader and a Storm
Trooper from Star Wars.
He traveled extensively
around the world for
conferences and meet-
ings, including many
trips to Las Vegas. So
frequent were his travels
that the campus set up
a website called "Where
in the World is Marshall
Goodman?" that boasted
about sojourns in France
and India.


His spending came
under fire by two state
senators, who never got
the full campus audit
they repeatedly request-
ed from him.
USF president Judy
Genshaft removed Good-
man from his post late
last year.
Touchton, a Lakeland
accountant who cau-.
tioned against rushing to
split USF Poly from the
mothership, has agreed
to serve in the post until
USF finds a permanent
replacement. A couple
of weeks ago Genshaft
announced the forma-
tion of a search commit-
tee and consulting firm
to get to work on the
process.
In the meantime,
Touchton told USF
trustees that he would
work to make the cam-
pus more efficient while
moving toward indepen-
dence benchmarks laid
out by the Florida Board
of Governors. Touchton
said this month that he
found someone to make
that documentary Good-
man had planned for just,
$ 2 5 ,0 0 0 ''
As for the Star Wars
statues, no decisions
have been made, a
spokesman said.

The Rotary Club of High-
lands County has its 12th
annual Bike Sebring 12/24
Hour & Ultra Cycling RAAM
Qualifier event Feb. 17-19
on the famed Sebring Inter-
national Raceway course.
"This is an international
event bringing cyclist's, their
teams and families to High-
lands County," said spokes-
man Jim Griffin. "Riders
from England, Spain,
Australia, Monte Carlo,
Germany and all over North
America travel to Highlands
County to participate in this
event."
One of the premier
cycling events held in the
world, the challenge is to
cycle for 12 or 24 hours,
stopping only for bicycle
repairs.
"That is the reason we
have so many international
riders," Griffin said. 'Also
our event is held on the
Sebring International Race-
way. This givers our riders a
safe track to ride on during
the 12 hours many of them
will ride at night."
Griffin said a 100-mile
"Century Ride" is new to the
line-up.
"Unique about our Cen-
tury is that it will be an of-
ficially timed and measured
race," Griffin said. "Riders
will start with the 12/24
riders for the first lap of the
100-mile event before riding


a route through the coun-
tryside before returning to
the raceway to finish. There
they will be presented with
an official certificate with
their time and distance.
"We expect this ride will
be very popular with local
and regional riders and
draw high participation,"
Griffin said.
Proceeds will be used
for Rotary's community
projects.
Griffin said tax deduct-
ible sponsorships are still
available. Sponsorship
levels are $75 (sign with
company name/logo); $150
(sign with company name/
logo, name in advertising,
and one free T-shirt); $ 250

PSC donates


100 uniforms to


Haitian children


Every weekend, more
than 120 children in Leo-
gane, Haiti, practice their
soccer games, dreaming
about one day playing
professionally, maybe even
scoring the winning goal in
a World Cup contest.
Soon, many of those
children will be perfecting
their moves and dream-
ing of the big time while
wearing Polk State College
uniforms.
Earlier this month, the
college donated about 100
soccer uniforms, more than
50 backpacks and several
warm-up outfits to Pascal
Million, a professional
soccer player who runs A
Million Dreams Foundation
in Leogane.
"For Polk State to do that,
it means the world to these
kids. For them to know that
someone was thinking of
them, it's like a dream for
them," said Millien, who
was born in Leogane but
grew up in Aubumdale.


Now a free agent, Millien
was a midfielder for the
Tampa Bay Rowdies for
three years.
The clothing and back-
packs were collected as
part of a service-learning
project called "Get Fit"
that students at Polk State
Chain of Lakes Collegiate
High School took on late
last year.
"Get Fit" began as a way
to increase fitness and
health awareness, said Polk
State Chain of Lakes Col-
legiate Professor Dr. Sarah
Hoiland-Brucato.
About the same time,
student Natalie Neff
learned of A Millien
Dreams. Inspired by its
mission to support the chil-
dren of Haiti, she proposed
that she and her classmates
help the cause. They ea-
gerly agreed.
The donated uniforms
all had the College's old
logo, said Polk State
Women's Soccer Coach


Bill Read.
Because of the out-
dated marking, they were
essentially useless for the
College's players, making it
a no-brainer to give them
to the Foundation.
"I don't really have words
to describe it. It's an answer
to the kids' prayers. I'm so
happy and thankful that
I got the opportunity to
make a difference in this
way," said Neff, a junior at
Polk State Chain of Lakes
Collegiate who lives in
Aubumdale.
Million recently left
for Ireland for a tryout
with the Sligo Rovers. He
said he would soon be
shipping the uniforms to
Leogane, and is excited to
see how his Foundation's
children react.
"The kids are going to
be so excited. These are
kids who don't have any-
thing. I am very grateful
that Polk State did this,"
Million said.


Clerk pushes


paper out the door


The Polk County Clerk of Courts
and County Comptroller made a step
in its journey toward a paperless
courthouse.
Each department now has the ability
to create digital images of court docu-
ments, advancing the Clerk's Office
toward its goal of electronic filing. Mo-
tions, filings, and orders are scanned
and directed to the proper location via
an electronic workflow process.
These documents are also available
to judges, the Sheriff, State Attorney,
Public Defender and attorneys on their
computers in "real-time," improving
efficiencies and s.naiing considerable
time and inu:-1..
"The improvements in County
Criminal go hand-in-hand with the
new requirements on k1 .1 ;, In addi-
tion to going live with our net. -., .ir-ni.
all documents viewed by the public


have had Social Security numbers,
bank account numbers and credit card
numbers removed," said Richard M.
Weiss, Polk County Clerk.
Weiss is referring to Florida laws
designed to protect customer privacy
and identity. Despite being an un-
funded mandate, Weiss' office met
the January 1st deadline requiring
documents viewed by the public be
scrubbed of personal information.
The final phase of this project will
include an electronic courtroom with
an estimated completion date of Oc-
tober. Polk County will then complete
its world-class electronic case manage-
ment system.
"With this recent milestone, we are
providing all our customers with a sys-
tem that is user-friendly and more ac-
I, E'.,.l1 at a savings of approximately
$1.2 niill'iii annually," said Weiss.


Best from the


12th district on display


Polk Museum of Art is showing the
work of high school art students from
around the 12th Congressional District in
the annual "Creative Youth Competition."
This exhibition, which is organized

The Creative Youth 12th Congressional
District Competition features artwork
by art students in grades 9-12 from high


schools in Polk County, part of Osceola
County and part of Hillsborough County.
Ninety-four students from 22 schools
submitted 650 artworks for the competi-
tion, and 105 were chosen to be shown
in the exhibition. The competition was
judged by two art professionals from
outside the 12th Congressional District.
An awards ceremony and student re-
ception is scheduled at 11 a.m. Saturday,
Feb. 18, at Polk Museum of Art. Awards
and cash prizes totaling $530 will be

In many ways, Alex Manjarres is
your typical high school student.
He speaks with the shyness
of someone who is still learning
about himself. He spends hours
playing video games. He's not a
fan of writing essays.
But in truth, Manjarres is
hardly ordinary. At 13, he is the
youngest student ever served by
Polk State College, and by the
time he is 15 he will have earned
both his high school diploma
and his Associate in Arts degree.
Manjarres is a junior at Polk
State Lakeland Collegiate High
School, one of two public, charter
high schools the College operates,
allowing students to complete
high school requirements while
also earning college credits.
Manjarres was accepted to
the school when he was 12, after
his parents had tried home-
schooling and other public and
charter schools.
None of those options posed
enough of a challenge for Man-
jarres, who was reading well
before kindergarten, said dad
Armando Manjarres. At Polk State
Lakeland Collegiate, however, the
family has found what it needed.
"It's like someone gave us
shoes that fit, and he can walk,"
said Armando Manjarres. "This
environment is a perfect fit."
Students accepted to Polk
State's collegiate high schools
must meet eligibility require-
ments, including a 2.5 grade-
point average and a passing
score on the PERT (Postsecond-
ary Education Readiness Test).
The schools serve only juniors

youngest student ever served by Polk State College. His 15-year-old triplet
siblings are also students at PSC.


and seniors.
Academically speaking,
Manjarres' admission was no
problem he had a 4.0 and had
already scored high on the SAT
and PERT.
That's not to say, however,
that there wasn't any hesitation
- both on the part of his family
and on the part of the College.
"We were proactive in consid-
ering all the variables that could
hinder him from being success-
ful," said Polk State Lakeland
Collegiate Director Sallie Bris-
bane. "For example, we looked
at the content of courses. If we
know that there is a particular
class that might have mature
themes, then we will point him
to a different course."
Such concerns aside, Man-
jarres said so far only his instruc-
tors have taken notice of his age,
and only in passing.


"Everyone's treated me like an
equal," he said.
Manjarres plans to study at Yale
or Cornell, with the goal of be-
coming an anesthesiologist. If he
maintains the academic pace he's
shown so far, he could be practic-
ing medicine by his mid-20s.
With Manjarres' impressive
academic resume it already
spans two pages, filled with
honor roll recognition, certifi-
cates and awards it would be
easy to imagine his parents as
drill-sergeant types who demand
endless study sessions.
That assumption would be
incorrect.
Manjarres estimates he spends
30 hours a week playing his fa-
vorite video game, "Halo: Reach,"
and as long as his homework is
finished, his parents eagerly ap-
prove of his couch-potato ways.
"He can play 20,000 hours of


video games in a week, but he is
expected to do his schoolwork,"
said Armando Manjarres. "His job
is to do well in school, but relaxing
and playing video games and
watching TV are a part of life, too."

Triplet siblings also
attend the college
Impressive as Alex Manjarres'
story is by itself, it also isn't
complete without his 15-year-
old triplet siblings Armando E.,
Raphael and Monica.
The triplets also all boast
numerous academic achieve-
ments. Armando E. and
Raphael are also students at
Polk State Lakeland Collegiate.
Monica is home-schooled
and is taking dual-enrollment
courses at the College; she
plans to attend Polk State Lake-
land Collegiate later this year.
The triplets are on track to earn
their high school diplomas and AA
degrees by the time they are 17.
Armando Manjarres says the
family's emphasis on academ-
ics began when the triplets were
born 13 weeks prematurely.
After 66 days at a hospital in
New Jersey where the family
lived until 2006 -- the babies
were sent home, but with a
warning: Because they were
born so early, they could have
developmental delays.
Armando and wife Daisy, now
an accounting manager at DCR
Business Solutions in Mulberry,
decided that she would work to
support the family. Armando,
meanwhile, would stay home


to care for the children, making
their development and educa-
tion his full-time job.
"I am so proud of the children
and my husband. Every minute
of the day, he's thinking of ways
to help them and do things for
them," said Daisy Manjarres.
Armando and Daisy re-
searched ways to stimulate their
babies' premature brains and
followed through on many of the
suggestions, including reading to
them daily and playing different
types of music in the home.
When Alex came along, he
simply fell in stride.
As the triplets grew older, they
proved to be free of setbacks, but
the family's learning-first culture
didn't wane. Recently, the family
moved from Mulberry to a subdi-
vision located just outside the Polk
State Lakeland campus, solely to
make it easier for the kids to get
out of bed and get to school.
Such a move may seem ex-
treme to some, but for the Man-
jarres family, it's all part of helping
their children to succeed.
"As parents, we feel that if we
give our children the right tools,
then they will do a good job,"
said Armando Manjarres.
All the Manjarres children
plan on pursuing their bach-
elor's degrees, but they have a
variety of career interests. While
Alex is focused on anesthesiol-
ogy, Armando E. is interested in
a music career and Monica is
interested in being a writer and
musician. Raphael, meanwhile,
is still deciding what he will do

If you want to lower your

becoming an Eagle Ridge
Mall Walker.
The official kick-off of Mall
Walkers was Tuesday, Jan. 24,
at the Eagle Ridge Mall.
"This is our second year in
partnership with the mall. We
had 125 registered mall walk-
ers last year and we currently
have 75 new people and
counting," said Maryemma
Bachelder, Lake Wales Medi-
cal Center marketing director.
The kick-off included
various health screenings
performed by the Lake Wales
Medical Center staff includ-
ing blood pressure, blood
sugar, and peak flow (lung
capacity) testing. Keep-
ing track of your individual
progress should be easier
this year because Mall Walk-
ers has added a new twist to
the usual logging of time and
distance.
"This year we are going to
monitor not only individual
progress but mileage as a
group," said Bachelder.
Some of the more festive
things going on included
the ribbon cutting, balloon
art and the free breakfast
provided by Steel City Grille.

Hospital, Poly open memory clinic


Winter Haven Hospital's Center for
Behavioral Health and Rehabilitation
Service and USF Polytechnic's Applied
Neuroscience Lab to plan to launch a
memory clinic that will offer treatment
for memory loss associated with Alzheim-
er's disease, dementia, stroke and other
brain injuries.
The service is based at the Center for
Behavioral Health at the hospital's Sweet
Center at 1201 1st St. S. in Winter Haven.
The new Memory Clinic was developed
by Iftikhar Rasul and Takkallapelli Rao,
geriatric psychiatrists at the Center for
Behavioral Health. It is staffed by an inter-
disciplinary team that provides outpatient


evaluation, education and treatment for
adults with acquired neurological difficul-
ties that affect their physical, cognitive,
emotional and behavioral well being.
Patients are now being accepted.
Memory issues can arise from a num-
ber of causes, including illness, injuries
and other disorders. The new clinic offers
disciplines such as neuropsychology,
speech / language pathology, occupa-
tional therapy, vocational rehabilitation
and nursing / case management.
"Treatment for memory loss associ-
ated with early-stage Alzheimer's disease
is already in trial stages of development
throughout the nation," said George


Winny, medical director of Winter Haven
Hospital's Center for Behavioral Health.
He said the partnership will be able to
offer access to research trials for some of
the latest non-pharmacological interven-
tions for early-stage memory loss.
Aryn Bush, co-director of the Applied
Neuroscience Lab and Megan Janke, from
USF Polytechnic, are providing some of
these non-pharmacological interventions.
Bush said new intervention techniques
can have a positive effect on the quality
of life and cognitive skills of patients with
early-stage Alzheimer's disease.
"There is no cure for Alzheimer's
disease, but there are a number of


drug-based and non-drug-based treat-
ments available than can help with cogni-
tive and behavioral symptoms," Bush
said. "This is an exciting new partnership
for USF Poly that puts us at the forefront
of this exciting field of study."
Jeffrey Reddout, a licensed clinical
neuropsychologist and director of Winter
Haven Hospital's ESTEEM Outpatient
Neurorehabilitation program, added,
"Early detection and intervention are the
keys to optimizing treatment. We can
have a positive impact at any point in the
progression, but treatments often have
the biggest and most long-lasting impact
when they are started early on."

Tennis tourney to aid premature infants


The inaugural Polk County Cup, a
new tennis tournament that seeks to
raise awareness of the needs of new-
borns requiring special care due to
illness or premature birth, is scheduled
March 30-April 1.
This first-of-its kind event will be
hosted by John and Tracy Scheck of
Winter Haven at the Lake Region Yacht
& Country Club.
Proceeds will be administered
through a donor-advised fund estab-
lished with the Community Founda-
tion of Greater Winter Haven and will
be used to help fund services provided
by the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
at Winter Haven Hospital's Regency
Center for Women and Infants. It will
provide scholarships to individuals at


Polk State College aspiring to a career
in nursing and who upon their gradu-
ation are willing to give back to the
community through employment at the
Regency Center for Women and Infants.
The event will be held over three days:
Friday, March 30: Kickoff dinner at the
Scheck home for players and sponsors.
Saturday, March 31: Tournament
play
Sunday, April 1: Tournament finals
"Tennis is easy to play and exciting
to watch so we think everyone who
participates will have a lot of fun. We
are also very pleased to be able to bring
attention to one of the most important
healthcare issues in our community,"
John Scheck is a wealth advisor and
branch manager of Morgan Stanley


Smith Barney in Winter Haven, said.
Eric Adamson, chairman of the Win-
ter Haven Hospital Foundation Board
of Trustees, said: "We have a history in
Winter Haven of community-minded
individuals stepping forward to improve
our quality of life. We couldn't have a
locally owned, not-for-profit healthcare
institution like Winter Haven Hospital
without leaders like the Scheck family
stepping forward. The Polk County Ten-
nis Cup promises to be another out-
standing example of that tradition."
Lance Anastasio, president and CEO of
Winter Haven Hospital, said: "On behalf
of the more than 2,500 employees at
Winter Haven Hospital, I want to offer
our thanks to the Schecks and all of those
who have committed to participating in


the Polk County Tennis Cup. Expressions
of support like this mean more to our
staff than I can express."
Joel Thomas, vice president Develop-
ment, Marketing & Public Relations for
Winter Haven Hospital, said: "Form-
ing philanthropic partnerships with
visionary community leaders like John
and Tracy Scheck is key to creating the
future of healthcare we all want to see
right here where we live. We are very
grateful to John and Tracy for their com-
mitment to this initiative and we look .
forward to working with them for years
to come."

JL -LL-- l.ACL. ,...L-L I _/."ILJLJ
MIAMI (AP) Federal officials ap-
proved the expansion of a five-county
Medicaid privatization pilot program
that allows for-profit providers to deter-
mine the health care of recipients, but
there's no indication whether a state-
wide expansion will be allowed.
Centers for Medicare and Medic-
aid Services spokesman Alper Ozinal
said the agency was insisting on new
protections, more accountability and
quality reporting.
Florida needed federal approval of
the five-county waiver if it hopes to ex-
pand statewide. The approval was first
reported by The Associated Press.
The state must also agree to a provi-
sion that would require private health
plans to spend 85 percent of funds on
patient care, according to a spokes-
woman for the state Agency for Health
Care Administration. That issue has

long been a sticking point, with state
lawmakers instead pushing for a profit-
sharing plan requiring providers to gen-
erate a 5 percent savings the first year.
Federal health officials have not sig-
naled whether they will allow Florida to
continue with an overhaul that would
privatize the program statewide for near-
ly 3 million Medicaid recipients. Officials
want to make sure the state addresses
concerns about access to health care in
the program raised by some residents.
A denial for statewide expansion could
send state lawmakers scrambling for a
solution to fix the $20 billion a year Med-
icaid costs they say are a strain on a tight
state budget. About half of the funding
comes from the federal government.
The five-county waiver is effective
through June 30, 2014, but federal

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I'd like to tell my story
about tetanus shots. When
I was 14 or 15, I1 worked on
my grandfather's potato
farm and was dirty from
head to toe. We picked up
potatoes and put them
in crates. My cousins, of
which I had many (I am
one of 52 grandchildren),
all worked on the farm. I
accidentally put my hand
through a window and cut
my wrist, which required
stitches. Because I was so
dirty, I was given a dose of
tetanus antitoxin. My arm
immediately swelled and
ached all over. I lay on a
couch for three days. From
then on, I wouldn't take
another tetanus shot, but
I became a nurse and had
to have a booster. I took it,
and several hours later my
arm became swollen and
fire-red. Ten years later,
when the time for another
booster came up, the doc-
tor suggested taking half
a dose. I did and got some
swelling but nothing like
the previous shots. I am
81 now and don't think I'll
have another shot. M.C.
ANSWER: Tetanus is
a dreadful illness. The
tetanus bacterium is widely
found in soil and is also
acquired from some indoor
locations. The organism
produces a poison (toxin)
that causes severe and
painful muscle spasms, in-


Ask Dr.
Donohue

Donohue


cluding lockjaw. Adults are
told to get a booster shot of
the tetanus vaccine every
10 years. Few do.
When people talk about
the tetanus shot, confusion
arises. One shot is tetanus
vaccine, called tetanus tox-
oid, a product made from
the inactivated tetanus
poison. It spurs the body to
make antibodies that neu-
tralize the bacterium's poi-
son. It takes a little time for
those antibodies to arise.
Therefore, tetanus anti-
toxin, a product containing
antibodies to the poison,
is given along with the
vaccine for a contaminated
wound. In these days, the
antibodies are derived from
humans. In the old days,
they came from horses and
caused many to react badly
to the injection.
I believe your reactions
happened mostly from
the antitoxin, which, in
those days, was probably
the horse product. All the
same, if I were taking care
of you, I wouldn't give you


the vaccine or the antitox-
in. It sounds like you react
to both. People should real-
ize the difference between
the two shots. And people
should get the vaccine
every 10 years.
TO READERS: Many
people have come down
with the mysterious illness
chronic fatigue syndrome.

the illness and its treat-
ment. To obtain a copy,

DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Help. My uric acid is
elevated, which my doc-
tor says is a sign of gout.
I'm not a rich old man. I
am a 75-year-old woman.
The doctor recommends I
drink cherry juice, which is
expensive. Can I substitute
cranberry juice? Can I con-
trol this with diet? G.R.
ANSWER: High uric acid,
which comes from the
daily metabolism of cells,
is associated with gout.
You, however, do not have
gout. You have asymptom-
atic hyperuricemia (HI-
purr-YOUR-uh-SEE-me-
uh), a higher-than-normal
blood level of uric acid
without having any signs


or symptoms of gout. Two-
thirds of people with such
elevation in uric acid never
develop gout. The cutoff
point for blood uric acid is
7 mg/dL (416 mmol/L). Do
you know how far above
that number your uric acid
is? Rich old men aren't the
only ones who get gout.
Neither of your two
medicines raises the uric-
acid level. Some water pills
(diuretics) do. HydroDIU-
RIL is one.
You're not sitting on
the edge of a cliff. Making
some changes will bring
down the uric acid without
spending any money. If
you're even a little over-
weight, lose some pounds.
Decrease your intake of
red meat, and don't eat
organ meat like liver. Go
easy with shellfish. Don't
drink pop. Dairy products
lower uric acid. Low-fat
dairy products are the
best, since they do not
raise cholesterol. Cut way
back on any alcohol, espe-
cially beer, which boosts
uric acid.
I have heard that cher-
ries and cherry juice bring
down uric acid. I can't give
you figures on how effec-
tive the cherry treatment
is. I don't believe it works.
If you make the dietary
changes I mentioned, you
ought to see a drop in uric
acid without spending a
penny.

For cosmetics

users, a bit

of 'tad' news
WELL NEWS
Scott LaFee



It's not time to toss the mascara and
blush, but a new study out of Brown
University suggests that even very low
concentrations of a chemical commonly
used in cosmetics hinders brain develop-
ment in tadpoles.
The chemical is called methylisothiazo-
linone or MIT. It's used as a preservative
and biocide in personal care products, from
cosmetics to shampoos, and it is considered
to be safe in humans in concentrations of
less than 100 parts per million. However, lab
studies have found that lower concentrations
affect the growth of model animal neurons.
"The lower concentrations we studied
didn't kill the animals or cause any big defor-
mities or affect the behavior you'd see just by
looking at them," says Carlos Aizenman, an
associate professor of neuroscience at Brown
and the study's senior author.
"But then we decided to do a series of
functional tests and we found that exposure
to this compound during a period of devel-
opment that's critical for the fine wiring of
the nervous system disrupted this period of
fine tuning."
Aizenman and colleagues found that
tadpoles exposed to different concentrations
of MIT displayed varying deficits in behavior
and basic brain development. The changes
weren't lethal, but they were measurable.
Aizenman said there's no evidence that the
same thing happens in humans, but that the
findings merit further investigation.
And maybe wearing less make-up.

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.
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
