Volume 92 Number 13


A December wreck on State Road 60
near Lake Wales that took the life of a
Frostproof resident has now resulted in
charges filed against another Frostproof
man.
Polk County Sheriff's traffic deputies
reported Tuesday they have made two
arrests in~ a fatal traffic crash investiga-
tion that occurred on Dec. 15.
According to police reports, at around
4 a.m. that morning, Jesus Marti, 55,
of Riverview, was operating a semi


tractor-trailer in
Lake Wales when
he stopped at a .
railroad cross-
ing that had its
barriers down and
lights flashing in
the eastbound lane
of S.R. 60 just west
HEAH WITEKER ofWest Lake Wales
Road.
While he was stopped at the crossing,


a 2002 Kia Sportage SUV being driven
by Heath Whiteaker, 33, of Lauterbach
SStreet in Frostproof, slammed into the
back of the trailer, which did not have a
load on it at the time, police said: After
crashing into the trailer, the Kia then
crashed into a guardrail, the sheriff's of-
fice reports. The impact killed Wrhiteak-
er's passenger, 33-year-old Adam Walker
of Frostproof.
Neither Whiteaker nor Walker were
wearing seat belts, the report shows.


Whiteaker also received injuries during
the crash, police said. After the crash,
Marti fled the scene in the tractor-
trailer.
A statement from the PCSO said that
after the crash, upon detecting the
strong odor of alcohol on Whiteaker,
deputies obtained a blood sample from
him for analysis. Lab results returned
to PCSO revealed that Whiteaker had a

Noemi (ruz was honored last month as Frostproof Elementary School's Volunteer of the Year.0On ~hand for the celebration, which
honored all the school's volunteers, were Shay Hixenbaugh, assistant principal, left, and Principal Kim Van Hook.

Honoree moved to Frostproof 12 years ago


It was only natural that Noemi Cruz was named
Frostproof Elementary School's Volunteer of the Year
recently.
After relocation here more than a decade ago,
much of her efforts have in one way or another cen-
tered around children.
Cruz moved to Frostproof 12 years ago from West
Palm Beach where she left her profession in banking
to pursue her passion of working with children.
She became a therapeutic foster parent for 11 years
and through this touched the lives of many troubled
children. Cruz has been involved in volunteering as
the parent representative for the ALPI Preschool in


Frostproof for two years and also serves on the Policy
council committee.
In just one short year of volunteering at Frostproof
Elementary, she has put in nearly 200 hours work-
ing in our school store, being the breakfast mom,
and working with many of our ESOL students who
are just learning English. In addition to volunteering
several days, Cruz is also a member of the School
Advisory Council and has taken the time to come to
every meeting.
"Our teachers really appreciate that she helps to

22 students in grades fourth through
eighth. Polk County is using this
pre-registration time to assure that it
has all students enrolled correctly to
comply with the law.
It is also important for parents


to bring your child with you to this
event. Each child will be given a short
readiness test to help with placement
for the next school year.
Additional booths will be also be
set up, including PTO and Pre-K
information. School T-shirts will be
available for purchase, and partici-
pants can get a ticket for a free hot
dog.
School officials noted that parents
need to bring the following items:
*Child's birth certificate, Bible
record, or Passport.
Physical card, not over a year old.
*Up-to date immunization record
on Florida blue card.
*Two proofs of residency from any
of the four categories: Category 1:
property tax record, mortgage docu-
ment, deed, lease, or rent receipt;
Category 2: current utility bill (elec-
tric, gas, phone, cable, water); Cat-
egory 3: voter registration; Category
4L: Proof of government benefits
disabilityy, Medicare, food stamps,
HRS correspondence).

The calls have already started. Every day more and
more of our part-time residents call the newspaper
office to let us know it's time to put their paper on
hold for the 'summer. So before everyone heads north,
we wanted to take~ the time to- say "Thank you" to all
the wiinter residents who make our community a bet-
ter place to live.
It's easy to see the economic benefit of our winter
residents -just go shopping or out to dinner 'but
let's not forget what else they: bring to our commu-
nity. Our part -timie residents tirelessly give of their
time andl effort. T~heyr volunteer at area organizations,
Lake Wales and Bartowi hospitals and other places
tha~t need help, like the Care Center or Church Service
Center.
Residents of Lake Ashton's RV community donate
thousands of dollars each year to our local school .
systerns. The group holds fundraisers and a banquet
each year that are always well attended.
We regularly receive pictures of volunteers who
have donated thousands of hours of their time to
make someone's stay; at the hospital a little more
bearable; some of these volunteers rack up their


only 21.3 percent of Floridians did any volunteer
work, ranking us 49 among the 50 states and Wash-
inigton D.C. Only Nevada and New York had worse
showings. We ranked a little better in the hours we
spend voltmteering with' 31.5 hours per person, rank-
ing us 37th in hours worked.
It doesn't have to be that way.
Volunteering may not come with a pay check, but
that doesn't mean there's nothing in it' for you. If you
lost your job, your home, both or worse, volunteer-
ing to drive some nails for Habitat for Humanity or
helping to deliver food for Meals on Wheels might ~be
the farthest thing from your mind, but it shouldn't be.
Helping others can put your own life into perspec-
tive, it's a great networking opportunity and doesn't
look bad on a resume. No one exter walked away from
a day of volunteering feeling regret for the way they
spent the last few hours.
We always hear, "You only get out of it what you put
into it," but that doesn't apply when it comes to giv-
ing your time to a worthy cause. You get much more,
and the best way to thank our part-time neighbors is
to keep rip their good work while they're away.


Discussions about the effcacv and
needs of the public schools in Florida
tend to become rancorous.
Those who see them as the great bul-
wark\ of democracy; believ-e that spend-
ing evler-increasing amounts of money
wiill solve whatever problems the!- may~
have.
Others believe the public schools do
too Little for too man\ and that mlone\
is not the solution.
Put me in the latter group.
Those who support reform efforts
cannot allow themselves to be bullied
by those in the first group, or by; the
mefcrnens hae much better argu
ments. The correct tactic is to first ask
what evidence proponents ha\e dial
spending more money on schools im-
proves educational outcomes.
This is constantly asserted but in my
experience no evidence is presented
to support the argument. The fact
that some other states spend more on
schools is irrelevant unless it is used in
that context.
Evidence against it is that spending,
both state and national, grew by leaps
and bound for some three decades,
while educational achievement was
stagnant. There was slight improvement
but not in relation to students in other
nations who will be competing with
Americans in the global economy.
The stagnation, incidentally, coin-
cided with the ascendancy of teacher
unions, which in some states virtually
control the schools and school policy

By BILL KA(ZOR
ASSOCIATED PRESS

TALIAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) The Flori-
da Supreme Court heard oral arguments
Tuesday on the constitutionality of term
limits for county commissioners in a pair
of cases that potentially could affect' all
20 of the state's charter counties.
The only opposition came from .
Bruce Rogow, a lawyer for Rio Vista
resident William Telli, who had chal-
lenged Broward's 12-yeai term limit.
In the second case, lawyers for Sara-
sota~ County and a citizens group~ both
argued in favor of the eight-y;ear term
limit there.
The case could have local imp~lica-
tians. Two sitting commissioners in Polk
County are being "termed"~ out of office
this fall, Sam Johnson in -District 5 and
Robert Eriglish in District 1. Both have
said they don't necessarily like the limit,
although Erhhglis has said he would not
seek a third term even if the court were
to rule against term limits.
Polk County voters in 2000 approved
the charter change to two consecutive


four-year terms for commissioners.
ROgOW cited a 2002 Supreme Court
ruling that struck down term limits for
county constitutional officers: sheriffs,
court clerks, supervisors of elections,
tax collectors and property appraisers,
That 4-3 decision was based on the
Florida Constitution's "Eight is Enough"
amendment, which sets eight-year
term limits for legislators, the gover-
nor, lieutenant governor and Cabinet
members but does not include county
officials.
"County home rule charters do not
trump the constitution," Rogowv fold
the justices. He argued it' would take
another constitutional arnendinefit
to add other disqualifications from
office such as term limits for county
commissioners.
Joni A. Coffey, a lawyer for Brolviard
County, contended the opinion on
constitutional officers' termn limits does .
not applyl to county commissioners
because their positions are establlished .
b!- a separate constitutional provision. It
makes an exsception-ftw charter counties
to requirements for county governing


boards that include having five or seven
members serving staggered fodr-year .
terms from single-member districts
redrawn after every 10-year census.
"The constitution itself establishes
a basis on which the people, not the
Legislature, can establish a disqualifica-
tion," Coffey said.
The 4th District Court of Appeal
upheld Broward's term limits while
a trial judge ruled against Sarasota's
limits. The- 2nd District Court of Ap-
pe'al bumped the Sarasota case to the
Supreme Court without a decision.
Justice Barbjara Parienlte noted the 4th
Distr-ict ruled county commissioners
are differentfrom constitutional officers
because they have statewide duties.
She asked Rogow if that was- an "honest
distinction."
"It's an honest distinction, but I don't
think it's a persuasive distinction," .
Rogow said.
One option w~~ould be for the high
court to recede from its 2002 decision, ,
Pariente suggested, but Rogow warned
that could lead to unforeseen results.
Three current justices participated


in that decision. Pariente and R. Fred
Lewis yoted with the majority while
Peggy Qluince dissented.
Andrea Flynn Morgensen, a lawyer
for the Sarasota citizens group, said
there was no difference between the
two cases. She said there was a sense of
urgency, though, because th~e Supreme
Court's decision will determine if two
Sarasota incumbents' will be able to
seek re-election this year or be term-
limited out of office. ITwo Broward com-
missioners are~in the same situation.
The high court did not indicate when
it would rule.
Ten charteropunties currently have
term limits. The other eight are Brevard,
Clay, Duval, Hillsboroughi, Orange;, Palm
Beach, Polk and Volusial
SIn January, voters in Miami-Dade,
the state's largest county rejected term
limits linked to a pay- raise for commis-
stoners. A new proposal without a pay
raise will be on the November ballot.
The cases are William Telli v. Bro-
ward County, et al.; SC11-1737, Cathy
Antunes, et al. v. Sarasota County,
SC12-109.


Some talented Polk County
fifth gradersarecently took center

four to five times per~year. .
"It is taxing at times, but it is my
passion," she said. "I would have
done this anyplace I was." '
Those are not idle boasts. Hard-
man grew up in Kentucky, and her
family played a founding role in he
community it founded. They stressed
upon her the importance of knowing
her history and her lineage.
"I've always been proud of my heri-
tage," she~ said. "They [her parents]
instilled in you your heritage."
After she moved to Atlanta to attend
school, she met the man who would
become her husband, William Hard-
man. Once he finished medical school
and then his military obligation, the
two moved to Lake Wales in 1975, where
he was raised. As she put it, she moved,
"kicking and fighting." But she quickly
grew to love Lake Wales.
Hardman said.her involvement
with the heritage and lore of Lake
Wales began a year later.
"In 1976, I got named to the
Bicentennial Commission," she said.
It meant learning everything she
could about her newly adopted new
home, becatise "'people exp ected you,


to know the anwers. That was fine
with her. "I've been a history buff
since I was a little girl."
Accepting another term is no pic-
nic in the park, she said.
"There's a lot of politicking, and
sometimes you have to call a spade
a spade," she said. "'You make it a
point of knowing the people who are
going to know you."
Serving on the committee is going to
be a greater challenge this year than in
past years. There is not going to be as
much money as in the past. In addi-
tion, success at the Florida Historical
Commission has proven to be a double-
edged sword. In recent past, the Flor'ida
Historical Commission was able to -


secure a number of grants. It led to
more that 150 applicants last year.
"It's enormous (the number of
applicants) when they see your suc-
cess," said Hardman,
Although Hardman is 76, she doesn't
see herself taking a break or retiring.
One reason is, who else knows what she
does? Besides, with her being retired,
who else is available? She reluctantly
conceded there could be a situation
that could prompt her to step down.
"If I didn't think I could do it better,"
she said; that, or whatever the Lord
has in store for her. In the meantime,
the likelihood of her stepping away is
practically near impossible.
"This is what I enjoy," she said.


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER LAKEWALESNEWS.COM

Serving on innumerable committees,
boards and commissions dedicated to
saving and preserving Florida history is
nothing new to IVimi Hardman. In fact,
just the mention of her name usually
evokes one or two or both thoughts:
her passion for fed in her wardrobe and
her knowledge of practically aill matters
great and small that have figured into
The lore of Lake Wales and the Ridge.
Thus it was perhaps no surprise
when Gov, Rick Scott recently reap-
pointed Hardman to the Florida
Historical Commission, a commission
she has long been associated with,
"I've been there nirle years," she
said. The work the commission does,
she added, includes judging grants
that will~be used to "'preserve won-
deriiul, old buildings, grav;e!'ards and
othefthings that are precious."'
Hardman, also president of the
Historic Lake Wales Society, said
serving on the state historical com-
mission does not impose a hardship
for her, save having to occasionally
travel to Tallahas~see. But that is only

PHQTO BY K.M. THORNTON SR.
Frostproof's Family Life Church picked an appropriate time Easter Sunday -- to break ground
on their new chuch campus to be located on over 14 acres of land just south of Frostproof Middle
Senior High Sch'ool. Ultimately, the congregation has approval for a complex of six buildings,
although church officials say it could be a decade before their plans come to full fruition. The first
phase is a 5,000 square foot building that' will house the site's first sanctuary which should be
able to accomdate around 200 worshipers. Plans for the church's vision were given a final green -
light by the Frostproof City Council on April 2.

Weaving wonders, basketry a popular class


By CARTHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT

The Polk County School Board's policy
committee took steps that may open the
doors to healthier, more active children
with increased learning skills and to giv-
ing a second chance to some potential
employees.
The committee, comprised of commu-
nityr representatives and school person-
nel, approved a board policy that will
give students the opportunity for more
physical exercise on a daily basis and give
reformed felons a chance to work for the
school system.
Senior Coordinator for Physical Educa-
tion Kathleen Wright suggested changes
to existing policies that would "strive to
meet the goal" of adding 15 minutes of
physical activity to every two hours of '
classroom study. She explained physical
activity could be incorporated into existing
lesson plans and added without disrupting


ongoing learning experiences. "We're not
SUggeSting that everyone stop or change
their normal curriculum, but just try to
add some movement to it," she explained.
Marianne Capoziello, Polk Education
Association president, voiced concerns
teachers could wind up being penalized
if performance reviewers walked into a
classroom and saw children moving about
if it could be misinterpreted as a lack of
control or variation from the teaching
norm. Wright maintained reviewers would
be informed of the policy changes and
should react accordingly.
"Teachers don't have another minute for
another mandate,"' Capoziello said, "But
we know that the kids are sedentary in the
classroom and go home to exercise only
their thumbs. We just want to make sure
this is doable before we pass it."
Wright assured her additional "move-
ment" could be incorporated into what
teachers are already doing.
Wright reinforced her argument by
claiming the U.S. CDC has suggested 15


minutes every two hours would not only
enhance students physically, but that
statistics show that children who exercise
"seem to learn better and faster." -
"I just want to know where teachers are
going to get that 4-5 minutes every day,"
Capoziello said. Wright responded any
increased activity would be beneficial and
the ultimate goal should be 45 minutes of
additional activity per day.
School Board Attomney Wes Bridges
suggested the policy language read the
additional physical activity be defined as
a goal.
"That is what we aspire to," he said. "fAnd
there is no punitive component included
in the policy for failure or inability to reach
that 'goal.' He added that the school
board was "fully aware" that "we've been
lessening physical education and activity"
and believed the board would be ready to
adopt the suggested policy change.
The amended policies would say
"schools will encourage the integration of
physical activity across the curricula (class-


room based movement) and throug~h-
out the school day to enrich academic
subjects" and reinforce existing PE classes
with the caveat that "students will be
engaged in moderate to vigorous physi-
cal activity for the majority of the physical
education class."
On another issue, the policy committee
will suggest the school board readdress on
a per instance basis the hiring of anyone
with a felony conviction in their back-
ground. Previously, anyone with a felony
conviction was banned from working for
the school board.
Attorney Don Wilson suggested the ex-
isting policy be amended to allow employ-
ment of former felons if proof of rehabili-
tation was provided.
Recent statistics indicated as` much as
one in six Polk County residents "have a
criminal record," and this policy change
could prove beneficial in some instances.
The policy committee agreed to both
changes and forwarded the recommenda-
tions to the school board for adoption.


When the end of the reed is reached, it goes "in" for
the night, and the following day, takes a step back (this is
where you start the new reed.)

How he got hooked

Baker has been teaching at ~Polk State College since
Jan. 3, 1977.
He says his mother was not necessarily an "artist," but
she was "very crafty," and very handy.
As children, he and his siblings wore clothes sewn by
their mother,
"That was when the military paid worse than teachers,"
he jokes.
So Baker's mother joined a Craft of the Month club,
where for about $5, a craft arrived in the mail once a
month.
"She started that when I was younger than 10," he said.
"She would get it started, then she would say, 'Oh, I've got
Other things to do,' and she would give it to me to finish."
But Baker, being from a small Connecticut town, didn't
see his school hire an art teacher until he was a junior in
high school. That is when he met Constance Stodge, the
art teacher hired that year. She was fresh out of college,
he notes.
"Her enthusiasm kept me involved," he said.
He went to the University of Connecticut, and received
a bachelor's in education, and took all of the requiirements
for a bachelor's of fine arts.
"fAfter that first semester, I knew I was hooked," he
said. "And the work I did that first semester became my
portfolio."
He has taught every form of art at PSC except photogra-
phy, he notes, and has a degree in painting, as well as an
MFA in print making.
The basketry class at PSC came about when the college
opened an art gallery, and needed objects for display.
At the time, he was doing some weekend shows selling
his work, and met a couple of people who were selling
"really beautiful" baskets south of Sarasota at an art show.
The distance was too much for them to come to display
their work with no guarantee of a sale, but they did agree
to do a workshop, and charged.
That first class was 25 people on a Saturday morning,
and Baker was there.
He had material left over after he made his basket, so
he kept making, baskets, and soon after formed a class at
the college, complete with curriculum. And since then,
'every fall and every spring, Polk State College has offered
basketry.
Students from his class assembled their works and put
them oil display at the Polk State College Art Show, and
some came to see their works in the gallery.
This, perhaps, is the finest reward of all.
At the artists' reception held Friday night, April 6, at the
Winter Haven campus of Polk State College, people from
the community came to see the display.
"My, what beautiful baskets," exclaimed several in at-
tendance.


KLBERKOWITZ LAKEWALESNEWS.COM
A little bit of reed, a little bit of dye, a few little tools, a
bucket of water, and yes ... patience ... that is all it takes
to make basket.
But to make a nice basket, or as Polk State College Pro-
fessor G;ary Baker says, "a useful" basket, takes skill.
And skill can be learned, which is why the college has
for the last three decades offered basketry class.
It is indeed a popular course.
"Relax, it's only reed," he says to the wide-eyed students
as they study how he bends the reed without splintering it.
Reed must first be soaked in a bucket of water for a
short time to make it pliable. But if flat reed is soaked too
long, it can also fall apart.
And as witrih anything "new," there are a lot of questions
from those who have never taken basketry (most of the
class, that is.)
The professor moves around the room, helping them
lay out the grid for their first "basic" basket a simple,
small, four-sided basket open at the top, with no handle.
His volunteers, on the other hand- Jessica Foote, a
young pre-school teacher, and Pam Marion, a seasoned
elementary education teacher (withi nore or less 30 years
of classroom teaching to her name) smile and say
"what do your directions say?" .
After laying out the grid work that resembles a lattice
pie, the sides are gradually brought up, and true weaving
begins. These reeds are called the "weavers" and the grid
then becomes "the stakes."
Each student receives weavers and stakes, in addition
to any other material they need, such as sea grass, or twill
to lace the basket, as part of their class fee. The tools are
checked out at the beginning of the semester, and as long
as the student returns them, they don't have to pay the
Polk State College Foundation an additional $10 for their
replacement.
Marion said she has in the past done all kinds of ceram-
ics and 3D art.
"And the idea of reed and all, and seeing how sculp-
turalyou could make it was kind of exciting," she said-
She heard of basket weaving anid asked if Professor Baker
could offer an independent study for her.
Shortly thereafter, a class was bomn, and she was in that
first class.
What do students gain from basketjry?
"A lot of patience," she says, with a devilish laugh.
"And soinetimes they are surprised at their creativity."
There is of course, a margin for error- -
"Just because there's a boo-boo, doesn't mean it's a
death sentence," the professor notes.
A few students unravel their basket and start over.
The object, Baker notes, is to "try to control the basket,
don't let the basket control you.''
Mathematics is involved, and measurement, even
calculation, may also take place if a pattern has to be
adjusted. Then there is the matter of dying.
At this, Jessica Foote smiles.
"Dying is messy business," she says, staring at the large
red dye bucket before her and the gruesome red puddles

teacher, weaves a large basket designed to be held on the hip
and carry bundles to the market.

formed on the floor after lifting freshly dyed reeds for vari-
ous takers.
The red reeds, though popular, must then be rinsed -
according to directions several times over several days,
and must dry completely before they are woven, or they
will, of course, bleed.
Some will dye, others will use tea to stain their baskets,
while others will leave their reeds natural.
Even this is a calculation.
"This is a class for accountants, people good with
numbers, because of the patterns," Foote says, noting that
sometimes people who require therapy for their hands
take the class to make their hands stronger.
She says the difference between basket weaving and
other art media is thaitwhile painting emphasizes what one
sees, colors and shapes, basketry emphasizes patterns.
And patterns can be tedious, at times, remembering
where to tuck the reed, and where to start the new one,
and the difference between a tightly-woven basket and
one that is np~t lies in how well one accomplishes this.
SFoote has developed a way to help students remember
the process of hiding the reed.
"I'm used to teaching brand new things to little people
all day long," she says, using the little bear ilustration, not
easily forgotten.

Students also will set up a table in
front of the Winter Haven Student
Center from 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on
April 10, where they will give more
information about the TOMS pro-
gram and accept shoe donations.
The Polk State -Chain of Lakes
project has been in the works since
January, and began with a simple
comment from Massey.
She and other members of the
Polk State Chain of Lakes Leader-
ship Cadre, a service-learning club,
were brainstorming service projects
and ways to turn their passions into
something meaningful for the com-
munity.
"I said, 'I really love shoes,"'
recalled Massey, 16, who estimates
she owns 30 pairs. "I wondered if
there was away to do something
with that."
She and her fellow students -
started searching the Internet, and
soon discovered TOMS. They were
immediately inspired.
"We take our shoes for granted.
We're worried about buying sexy
shoes for prom. We all own shoes
that we don't wear anymore because
they're out of style. But there are
people out there who would love to
just have a pair of plan white tennis
shoes," said Kennon, 16.
Kennon and Massey agree that the
shoe project is only the beginning.
Through Cadre, they've both dis-
covered a sense o~f selflessness and
they're eager to find other ways they
can help their community.
"We're always thinking about what
else we can cohtribute,." Kennon
said. "It's clich6 to say --- that if you
give to others, you feel better about
yourself but it's really true."

a traditional, tax-deductible IRA, the
amount you contribute for tax year 2011
is deductible. If you aren't as concerned
with immediate deductions but want to
save on taxes in retirement, you can still
make 2011 Roth IRA contributions. You
can contribute up to $5,000 ($6,000 if
you are age 50 or older). Roth IRA con-
tribution limits are affected by income
levels, so be sure to consult with your
financial advisor.
Don't Procrastinate Just File: Filing
a tax return is required by law, so either
file by the deadline or request an exten-
sion. There are advantages to complet-
ing your tax return early, even if you
owe money. The earlier you know how
much you owe, the more time you will
have to find -funds or adjust your budget
to prepare for the added expense,
Some Tips on Filing: Avoid the mad
rush on April1l7. If you are using the
U.S. Post Office, send your form "Return
Receipt Requested." Write the number
on the top edge of your form before
you seal it as proof the form was in the
envelope. The IRS also accepts delivery
by Airborne Express, DHL Worldwide
Express, FedEx and UPS.
File electronically. Go to http:/ /www.
irs.gov and click on "I need to file my
tax return." There are many electronic
filing options and you can e-file for free
if you earned $57,000 or less. Telephone
help for individuals is available from
7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily at 800-829-1040
(TTY/TTD 800-829-4059).
Need help? Consider the Volunteer
Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program
and AARP's TaxAide-both offer free tax
preparation for low-income taxpay-
ers. To locate the nearest VITA site, call
sit800-0-87 i Iu can fand a aT rdgi
vmis/sites/tax aide_locator.jsp.


Still working on your income tax
returns? You're not alone,
One quick tip is people have two extra
days to file because April 15 is a Satur-
day. People have until midnight Mon-
day to get their taxes postmarked. But
there are more and one firm has some
advice if you've blown off the responsi-
bility and have only this week to get it
done.
"You can definitely make tax time
less stressful and draining by taking a
little extra time to get organized," says
Richard Schram, regional president for
CredAbility, a nonprofit credit counsel-
ing and education agency that serves
clients in all 50 states plus the District
of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and
the US Virgin Islands, in both English
and Spanish. "With a little preparation,
you can file on time and enjoy your ~
refund sooner."
Some tips it is offering:
Keep It Simple: A single file to keep
important tax documents can make the
process faster and easier. If you've kept
good records of possible deductions,
such~ as out-of-pocket medical costs,
child care, car mileage and expenses,
costs for a job search and charitable do-
nations, it's just a matter of organizing
the information, filling out the forms
and doing the calculations. If you are
using a tax preparer to complete your
forms, having these items~organized will
make the process go much faster. With
so much information online, you can
also find most year-end statements and

An undated postcard shows a bird's eye view of Brewster, a phosphate town that no longer
exists. Brewster residents, workers, descendants and friends are invited to a reunion on May 5
at Bartow Civic Center.


Be TWSter TCOmmunity reunion May 5


It's been gone for years, but people
who lived or worked in Brewster re-
member it well.
On Saturday, May 5, they'll gather at
Bartow Civic Center to recall memories
and make new ones at the Brewster Re-
union. Anyone who was born, raised,
attended school, lived or worked in
that phosphate town is welcome, along
with spouses, family and extended
family. Pre-registration is recommend-
ed to avoid standing in line; one of the
organizers, Patricia Peters Prine, of Fort
Meade, said. Cost is $10 a person; those


under 12 or over 89 are free.
Each family is asked to bring a
covered dish (meat, vegetable, salad or
dessert) to serve 10 people. Coffee, tea,
ice, cups, plates, utensils and napkins
will be provided. Dishes and serving
utensils should be labeled.
All kinds of memorabilia will be dis-
played and those attending are asked
to bring theirs to share.
"Come if you can; wr-ite us if you
can't," Prine said. For information
write or call her at 815 N.E. Eighth St.,
Fort Meade or call (863) 285-8768.


For Polk State Chain of Lakes Col-
legiate High School students Holly
Kennon and Sarah Massey, shoes
are much more than just shoes.
They are opportunities. .
A pair of sneakers is a chance for
a child to- go to school. A pair of
pumps is a woman's shot at a neiv
job. A pair of loafers can help a man
get his whole life back on track.
With that in mind, the students
are spearheading a shoe drive on
Polk State's Winter Haven campus
until April 13. Kennon and Massey,
along with other members of the
Polk State Chain of Lakes Leader-
ship Cadre, will be collecting shoes
of all kinds and sizes except
flip-flops at boxes located at the
Student Center, Learning Resources
Building and Polk State Chain of
Lakes office.
SThe shoe- drive will end at noon
on April 13, and the shoes will then
be donated to The Missitin of Winter
Haven and Cheep H~outique.
TOMS Shoes is known for its
philanthropic efforts, donating one
pair of shoes to those in need for
every pair it sells. The company's
website, toms.com, explains that
without shoes, children are exposed
to disease -and injury, and, in many
places, shoes are a requirement for
attending school.
"For Tomorrow" explains the com-
pany's mission and its nationwide
"One Day Without Shoes" campaign,
which was planned for April 10.
"One Day Without Shoes" encourag-
es people to do just that go a day
without wearing shoes so they
can better understand the plight of
those who do not own shoes.
As part of the Polk State Chain of
Lakes project, students are encour-
aging their peers and members of
the College's faculty and staff to
participate in I'One Day Without
Shoes." 'Par~ticipants should still
wear shoes when they're outside

The painting has inconsistencies,
but the battle was successful.
The weather turned bad. It was
cold, the wind was blowing sleet
and snow, the river was starting to
freeze over and the boats were small
and overloaded. Washington and his
troops with horses, cannons, am-
munition and necessary baggage
started crossing the river at 4 p.m.
and finished at 4 a.m. Then they
had to walk nine miles to attack the
British forces at Trenton. The attack
was a success.
The Americans routed the British

changing the course and the out-
come of the Revolutionary War.
The Ramseurs used this painting
with all its inaccuracies to empha-
size the point that because of the
hardships the patriots endured and
no loss of patriot lives, General
Washington realized this amazingly
great victory to truly be a miracle by
the hand of God.

Sons of the American Revolu
tion, Lakeland Chapter, had David
Ramseur and his wife Marjorie as
their guests and keynote speakers
for this month's meeting.
David is president of the Florida
Society, Sons of the American
Revolution, and Marjorie is a past
chapter regent for the Daughters
of the American Revolution as well
as president of the FLSSAR Ladies
Auxiliary.
Their program about the paint
ing of "Washington Crossing the
Delaware" completely entranced the
audience throughout the presenta-
tion.
The work was painted in Germany
almost 100 years after the war by
Emanuel Leutze. He painted the
picture as an inspiration to the Ger-
man people during their revolution
of 1848. -i
The Ramseurs said the painting
had many inaccuracies.
For example, the people in the
boat were a cross section of the
American population. George Wash-
ington was standing, next to him
holding the flag was James Mon-
roe, a future president. There was a
frontiersman, a Scottish immigrant,
a farmer, a woman in man's cloth-
ing, an African American, a native
American, etc. The -flag was fly-
ing high and proud, but it was the
wrong flag. The flag shown in the
picture was not~created until six
months later and they pointed out

that woidld require counties to pay the
money, though he also said the Agency
for Health Care Administration would
work with counties to make sure bills
are accurate.
Polk County Attorney Michael Craig
said county officials are balking at this
because payment claims are poorly
documented.
Craig told commissioners that 25
of Florida's 67 counties are to be on
the team to challenge the law and he
recommended Polk be part of it. When
asked what the law means, he said it
could cost Polk County up to $9 million
per year.
"It's a big item," he said. "And, it will
affect us significantly."


County Manager Jim Freeman told
commissioners Polk County has $12
million in back billing and in his most '
recent look at revenue sharing there
is a concurring cost that would be $5
million and the current budget is $5.9 in
the Medicaid share.
''It's significant as far as back billing
and the source of funding is probably
from the general fund," Freeman said.
"It's a tremendous stress to the general
fund. I strong support the county attor-
ney's recommendationn"
He said the Florida Association of
Counties will apply for an injunction
but he doesn't think that will be
successful.
Commissioner Melony Bell was


particularly upset about the law.
"I'm in total agreement," she said.
"I've been going to Tallahassee (this
year) and asked that-they not give us
unfunded mandates. I don't understand
and I'm disappointed in our legislators
and the governor."
When asked why only 25 of the 67
counties are participating the lawsuit
so far, he said thei-e are a lot of smaller
counties that are "fiscally constrained,"
though he was not sure what it cost Polk
County to participate.
"Bul; there are a lot of participants,"
he said. "This is a big-ticket item for us.
We worked hard throughout the legisla-
tive session to make it better but we
were unsuccessful."

whether to file a lawsuit challenging a
legislative move to collect tens of millions
of dollars in Medicaid payments from
counties and Polk County Commissioners
voted last week to be part of the lawsuit.
Cragin Mosteller, an association
spokeswoman, said a task force of
county attorneys is studying a pos-
sible legal challenge. Legislative leaders
argue that counties owe back payments,
but counties say the state's biling sys-
tem is badly flawed.

The University of Wisconsin and the

outcomes and 43rd in health factors.
Community groups such as PolkVi-
sion, the Healthy Start Coalition's Teen
Pregnancy Prevention Alliance, and
Tobacco Free Florida, to name just a
few, work year-round to implement
strategies to address disparities in the
health of Polk County citizens. .
These groups bring together organi-
zations, businesses, government, and
individuals with a common goal of
improving the health of all people in
Polk County.
"Polk Vision will be hosting a com-
munity fortim on June 29th at Polk
State College in Lakeland. The topic
is Building a Healthier Polk," states
Colleen Burton, Executive Director
of Polk Vision. "Our Quality of Life
sub-committee has been reviewing
data from various community health
assessments, and has decided to focus
the June event on prioritizing strate-
gies on best practices for- addressing


obesity in Polk County."
Chronic diseases are among the
most common and costly of all health
problems in the United States, but
they are also among the most prevent-
able. By effectively addressing obesity,
we can make a significant impact on
preventing serious health problems,
such as heart disease, stroke, type 2
diabetes, ah~d cancer.
Where' we live~ matters to- our health,
and much of what influences our
health happens outside of the doctor's
office. Change begins by bringing to-
gether community leaders to identify
what steps need to be taken to build
a healthier community. Some factors
are improving in Polk, while others
are clearly warning us of future health
consequences.
The Polk County Health Depart-
ment's website, at www.mypolkhealth.

Reports page to community health
status reports that provide informa-

the health outcomes for Polk County

AssoCIATED PRESS

For years,.women have been urged to
get screened for breast cancer because
the earlier it's found, the better. Now
researchers are reporting more evidence
suggesting that's not always the case.
A study in Norway estimates that
between 15 and 25 percent of breast
cancers found by mammograms
wouldn't have caused any problems
during a woman's lifetime, but these
;umors were being treated anyway.
Once detected, early tumors are surgi-
cally removed and sometimes treated
with radiation or chemotherapy be-
cause there's no certain way to figure
out which ones may be dangerous and -
which are harmless.
"When you look for cancer early and
you look really hard, you find forms that
are ultimately never going to bother the
patient," said Dr. H. Gilbert Welch of the
Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy
and Clinical Practice, who was not part
of the research. "It's a side effect of early
diagnosis."
The study is the latest to explore over-
diagnosis from routine mammograms
finding tumors that grow so slowly
or not at all and that would not have
caused symptoms or death. Previous
estimates of the problem have varied.
The researchers took advantage of the


Polk Health Dept. offers

The Polk County Health Depart-
ment has free HIV testing on Sun-
day, April 22 at Club DeCosey's, 39
West Park Ave., Lake Wales.
The testing is from 6 p.m.-
midmight.
"W~hat you don't know can hurt -
you," the Polk County Health
Department put in a press release
and urges community
participation.
For information, call (863) 519-
8722, ext. 11233 or (863) 221-3956.
A future testing site at a later
date will be the Lake Wales BP Sta-
tion located at 704 N. Scenic Hwy.
in Lake Wales.
April is STD Awareness Month,
,and the event is part of the Face
It Florida program to educate the
community about STDs. Accord-
ing to a flyer distributed by the
Polk County Health Department,
approximately 288 new cases of
STDs are diagnosed every day,
tsbout 12 of those every hour, and
one case every five minutes. ..

"The truth is that we've exaggerated

headed to a place where we realize we
need to give women a more balanced
message: Mammography helps some
people but it leads others to be treated
unnecessarily."
An editorial published with the study
said overdiagnosis probably occurs
more often in the United States because
American women often start annual
screening at an earlier age and radi-
ologists in the U.S. are more likely to
report suspicious findings than those in
Europe.
Radiologists could help by raising
the threshold for noting abnormalities,
wrote Dr. Joann Elmore of the Univer-
sity of Washington School of Medicine
and Dr. Suzanne Fletcher of Harvard
Medical School.
A "watch-and-wait" approach has
been suggested instead of an immedi-
ate biopsy, but the editorial writers ac-
knowledge that could be a "tough sell"
for some women and radiologists alike.
They said most women aren't aware
of the possibility of overdiagnosis.
"We have an ethical responsibility to
alert women to this phenomenon," they
wrote.


Breast Center awarded 'Center of Excellence'


The Breast Center at Florida Hos-
pital Heartland Medical Center in Se-
bring has been designated a "Breast
Imaging Center of Excellence" by the
American College of Radiology.
As the only facility in the Heartland

tion, The Breast Center is very proud
to offer the highest standards in breast
imaging close to home. "Attaining the
recognition as a Breast Imaging Cen-
ter of Excellence by such a prestigious
organization as the American College
of Radiology proves our commitment
to breast health excellence for our
patients," said Florida Hospital Heart-
land Directqr of Diagnostic Imaging
Zbigniew Nawrocki.
After many peer-review evaluations
conducted in each breast imaging
modality by board-certified physi-
cians and medical physicists who are
experts in the field, the' ACR con-
cluded that Florida Hospital Heart-
land Medical Center's Breast Center
in Sebring has achieved high practice
standards in image quality, person-
nel qualifications, facility equipment,
quality cojritrol procedures, and qual-
ity assurance programs.
