Frostproof officials are hoping a
creative refinancing of long-term
debt, and perhaps a dip into the city's
more than $2.7 million in unrestricted
reserves, might help keep city utility
rates in check for the near future.
They will discuss options at a 5 p.m.
workshop on Monday, May 21, prior
to their regularly scheduled 6 p.m.
council meeting.
In hand is a report from Gollahon
Financial Services which outlines sev-
eral options the city might consider
after Frostproof's auditor warned
early this year that water and sewer
rate hikes were strongly suggested
since that operation is basically at a
break even point when revenues and
expenses are balanced out.
The council reviewed several
refinancing options at a special work-
shop May 2.
At the center of the proposal
is water and sewer system bond
taken out in 2001, when the city was
under a direct federal mandate to


begin improving its sewer system,
and a loan from Citizens Bank and
Trust with a current balance due of
$181,862.
James Gollahon told city commis-
sioner in late April that the city could
realize savings on the bond debt
with a conventional bank loan if that
rate came in at 3.8 percent or better.
About $1.725 million is still to be
repaid on the 11-year old bond. The
interest rate on the bond is slightly
above 5 percent, according to city
officials, which has another 19 years
of payments remaining.
Over the remaining life of the bond,
Gollahon estimated the city would
save just less than $285,000, of the
outstanding amount.
"Refunding (refinancing) savings
are considered attractive when they
are at least 3-5 percent of the debt,"
he noted.
Gollahon indicated that interest
rates spiked about a month ago, but
have since come back down into a
range that should save the city money.

Depot coming alive


Frostproof hosted a special ceremony last Friday to honor three city law enforcers, David
McCall, Richard Clark and Johnny Smith, who died while serving. Mayor Kay Hutzelman
gives flowers to the families of the fallen officers, from left: Annette Whaley (David McCall's
sister), Mary McCall (McCall's mother), Lillian Whaley (mother-in-law of Annette Whaley and
family friend), and Karen Williams (McCall's sister). McCall was killed in 1981 when he was
shot while responding to a bank robbery in Frostproof. A suspect was never caught. Not
pictured is Tiffany Smith, Johnny Smith's daughter, who also attended.

Dusk falls upon the Historic Frostproof
Depot two blocks east ofWall Street along
the rusty railroad tracks.
The wooden whitewashed doors stand
'wide open. Two ceiling fans and one
wire-frame fan in the corner circulates the
otherwise stale summer air. The florescent
lights cast their artificial glow, soon to
encapsulate the depot and attract mites
come evening.
Inside, an assortment of chairs is set be-
fore two tables, each covered with plastic
tablecloths, one gingham. Each table bears
an interesting selection of merchandise
ranging from a box of barbecue spices
and three portable stoves to six orange
Craftsman weed wackers and a dollar store


bubble blower.
Around 16 people are present that
Thursday evening, though head auction-
eer Glen Whaley boasts that he has seen
larger.
The auction starts around 6 p.m. First
item up for bid are four orange bottles of
folic acid, each selling for one dollar, all
bought by one elderly lady in the front.
It's one of several events going on at
the depot, or will be going on in the near
future, making it a center of renewed
activity in the city.
The auction continues with a plethora,
of items ranging from pocket knives and
knife sharpeners to all-purpose cleaners
and mechanical scales.

VIEWPOINT


Common sense can prevent gator attacks


Straight out of a basic cable reality TV series,
personnel from the Polk County Sheriffs Office, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
and a private trapper have been chasing alligators all
over the county in recent weeks.
Just a couple of weeks ago, a nine-foot alligator
grabbed a 75-year-old golfer near a lake in the Lake
Aston subdivision in Lake Wales. The gator grabbed
the man and was close to having his prey completely
under water when other golfers forced the gator to
release the golfer.
Folks in the subdivision report that several people
routinely fed the alligator.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission reported its Statewide Nuisance
Alligator Program, SNAP received 13,047 nuisance
alligator complaints in 2010, resulting in the removal
of 5,856 nuisance alligators. To report a nuisance
gator, residents can call the agency's hotline at
1-866-FWC-GATOR (866-392-4286).
The program has succeeded in reducing the
number of injuries and deaths from alligator attacks
over the five years, according to FWC statistics. As
recently at 2007, a total of 14 attacks were reported,


Our Viewpoint

including one fatality. From 2000 to 2007, the
number of attacks ranged from 10 to 16 per year,
including 12 deaths over that period. In 2010 and
2011, only a total of five attacks were reported.
The sheer number of alligators in Florida FWC
estimates there are 1.3 million of them makes
interaction with people highly probable. Such
interactions range from siting one sunbathing along
a canal or golf course pond to waking up to one on
your patio or swimming pool.
There are a number of ways to avoid becoming a
victim, with most falling under the category of com-
mon sense. Among the suggestion from the FWC
include:
Do not feed alligators. The reptiles are naturally
wary of humans, which are their only natural preda-
tor. Under the state's harvest program, 7,736 alliga-
tors were captured in 2010. Trappers sell the gators
for their meat and hides. Feeding gators causes them
to associate humans with food and they lose their


natural wariness.
Do not swim outside posted swimming areas.
Avoid swimming at night. Gators are most active
between dusk and dawn. Pets tend to attract alliga-
tors' interest, so do not allow pets to swim in areas
known to be inhabited by gators. Avoid swimming
with your pets.
Do not harass or handle alligators, even small
ones. Small alligators bite just like large ones. In
addition to tissue, and bone damage, alligators bites
can cause serious, even deadly, infections.
The May and June courtship and mating period
is the cause of the heightened activity and aggres-
siveness of gators. In late June and early July, females
will lay their eggs in mounds of soil, vegetation and
debris beside ponds and rivers. Do not disturb nests,
which is a crime and also could trigger a defensive
attack by a nearby gator.
Alligators are an important part of Florida's
ecosystem. We share many of the same habitats.
Generally if you leave them alone, they leave you
alone.
When that changes, call the FWC and let the
professionals take care of it.


Clear to partly cloudy


When I was a kid, I once came
up with a remarkable blueprint for
happiness:
I would become a chronic pessimist,
I decided, always assuming that the
worst would happen.
Then, I reasoned, when things
turned out well, I would be pleasantly
surprised.
I would be happy.
If that's not the most cockamamie
plan for happiness ever devised, it will
do until something more bizarre comes
along.
It's a little like trying to borrow your
way out of debt.
It took me only a few hours to aban-
don this convoluted route to happiness.
Yet somehow it survives to this day in
TV weather forecasting.

Weatherpersons meteorologists,
in this age when everybody needs a
fancy title are the embodiment of my
childhood premise that I could scowl
my way to perpetual happiness.
Each day, they tell us that the day's
weather is not quite right, but that
things will be better in a few days. Or
maybe not. Maybe things will be worse.
And if they are going to be better, the
weatherperson warns us that better will
be only temporary, and worse will soon
follow.
And to amplify on how bad things are,
they tell us what the dew point is, which
they say makes us miserable even if the
temperature is mild, the skies are clear,
and gas is back to selling for 38 cents a
gallon.

And then there are the twin meteoro-
logical curses, the Heat Index and the
Wind Chill Factor.


S.L. Frisbie




5.L. Frisbie can be contacted at
slfrisbie@polkcountydemocrat.com


The Heat Index is a misery number
that tells you that even if the tem-
perature is 91 degrees, the lack of wind
makes it feel like 117. Conversely, the
Wind Chill Factor is a misery number
that tells you that if the temperature is
48 degrees, there is a wind blowing that
will make it feel like 28.
Hey, we live in Florida. We know that
91 is hot, and 48 is cold. That is why we
have air conditioning in the summer
and windbreakers in the winter.

We actually do not need weatherper-
sons to tell us that it is hot in the sum-
mer and cold in the winter. If we are in
serious doubt, we can open a door to
confirm our suspicions.
What we need to know is whether or
not it is going to rain. This translates
into decisions ranging from whether
to set the sprinklers to when to go on a
picnic.
And we are not looking for an opinion
on the good or evil of rainfall; we are
only interested in the probability of it


occurring.
But no, if rain is in the forecast, the
weatherperson frets that it will ruin our
day, not withstanding that it has not
rained here since Thanksgiving. On the
other hand, if the forecast is for clear

skies, the weatherperson frets over the
lack of rainfall, and reminds us to wear
sunscreen, noting that 93.7 percent of
us do not apply it properly.

Weatherpeople are at their most valu-
able during hurricane season, or more
precisely, during hurricanes. They give
us information about the direction of
the hurricane, the top wind speed, and
the probable duration.
This they do without telling us
whether these phenomena are.good or
bad, and for this I am grateful.
But there's one thing: when a
Category 5 hurricane arrives, they stand
outdoors on.a beach telling us all to
seek cover and not to go outside until at


least November.
Immediately after this warning, the
anchorperson comes on camera and
begs the weatherperson to come in out
of the rain before a gust of wind lifts
him in Mary Poppins fashion and drops
him to earth six miles east of Toronto.
That this warning is necessary
prompts unfavorable reflection on the
phrase: "Having enough sense to come
in out of the rain."


(S. L. Frisbie is retired. He is thinking
of sending each area TV station a map
showing where all the cities in Central
Florida are located. It's bad enough
when they show Brandon as being where
Lakeland is, and Sebring as being where
Haines City is. What makes it worse is
that every few days, they move the cities
around on the map like pieces on a
chess board.)

Nesting in the


By KATHY LEIGH BERKOWITZ
KLBERKOWITZ@LAKEWALESNEWS.COM

This is part2 ofa three-partseries
About the history oflrwin Arthur Yamell,
his.contribution to Lake Wales, and later,
the home he built for his wife, La Casa de
Josefina in Highland Park. Look for Part 3
in Wednesday's edition of The Lake Wales
News.
Perhaps building was always on his
mind, but then, Irwin ArthurYamell always
seemed to have a project in the works. After
falling in love with the Highlands around
LakeWales, he rolled up his sleeves and got
to work.
Though history says Yamell practiced
no particular religion, he is credited with
building the Holy Spirit Catholic Church
in LakeWales, at 1099 Hesperides Rd.
Family records note that Yamell, his wife,
Josephine, and his children attended this
church.
The church and the home he built for
his wife, La Casa de Josefina, shared similar
Spanish architecture.
That original church is now known as the
Lake Wales Arts Center.
The first African Methodist Episcopal
(A.M.E.) church in Lake Wales was also
built, according to records, "so that his em-
ployees could worship somewhere besides
the shore of a lake or someone's home."
According to Blair Updike, the deputy
clerk of Highland'Park, "in gratitude, the
AM.E. choir would visit the Casa and sing
spirituals in the music room, and these
were among the most cherished family
memories."
Yamell loved spiritual music and enjoyed
taking his family to the A.M.E. services from
time to time.
Updike notes that because he "paid fair
wages to his employees and allowed them
to take home company trucks, no matter
their race, the Ku Klux Klan twice burned
crosses on his property, but he told them

it


he could respect no man who hid
Other history records note that Yar
"knew by their shoes" who they w(
"reminded them that he had madE

Citrus group may


appeal anti-dumping order


The country's largest citrus grower
organization has filed a summons with
the U.S. Court of International Trade
initiating an appeal of the International
Trade Commission decision to re-
voke the anti-dumping order against
Brazilian orange juice processors.
"We continue to believe that the ITC
made the wrong decision in this case
for a number of reasons," said Michael
W. Sparks, executive vice president and
CEO of Florida Citrus Mutual. "There's
been extreme volatility in the market-
place since the revocation of the order
providing clear proof that the order
was doing what it was supposed to do
- make the Brazilian processors play by
the rules."
"We will continue to consider our
options to appeal and if necessary, we
will file a new petition because we know
the dumping isn't going to stop."


Some of the ITC's findings that
Mutual could challenge in an appeal
include concluding there are significant
supply constraints in Brazil, concluding
the United States is not an attractive
market for Brazilian juice, assuming
that Brazil's processing presence in the
United States evens the trade playing
field, ignoring the carbendazim issue's
affect on demand, relying almost exclu-
sively on unsupported Brazilian pricing
data, concluding that Brazilian imports
do not affect on U.S. prices, focusing
on grower revenue without considering
increased costs and failing to properly
consider the effects of revocation on
growers
Since the Commission revoked the
anti-dumping order on March 14, many
of their assumptions have been severely
undermined. Orange Juice futures
prices have declined by 40 percent,


the effects of carbendazim have sig-
nificantly reduced consumer demand
and Brazilian shippers expect to have
carbendazim-free concentrate back on
the market in less than six months.
In addition, Brazilian production
outstripped the commission's estimate
by 7 percent for both the current season
and next year. A week after the vote, the
Brazilian industry reported anticipated
inventories 40 percent higher than
predicted by the commission.
An anti-dumping order covering the
major Brazilian orange juice processors
was put in place in 2006. Dumping is
selling product for less than normal
value, including prices below the cost
of production. It can severely harm
domestic producers by subsidizing
cheaper U.S. sales with higher priced
foreign sales destabilizing world
markets. ,

Portable steamers. Fans. Heaters. Dog
treats. Pasta. Pudding cups. Chips.
Antique model airplanes. Pots. Pans. And
a small exercise tool, the "Spin Gym," that
not even the auctioneers can identify.
Every last item is sold by evening's end.
Whaley and his assistants display a
kitchenware-set. He starts the bid at $10
and rounds off the prices through his
headset: "Ten. Now 15. Give me 15. Twelve
and a half. Twelve. Fifteen. Ten."
A lady up front accepts one pot.
Whaley continues spouting out prices
until a family in back agrees to buy the
whole set for $31.
The last item is sold around 9:30 p.m.
This is the first of many auctions to be
held at the Depot Thursdays at 6 p.m.
Several will be fundraisers for the
Frostproof Chamber of Commerce and
Rotary Club.
"We really want to help them out,"
Whaley said. "They've been nice enough
to let us use the facility here."
Whaley has been auctioning for 12
years, having started in Georgia before
moving to Florida.
The auctions sell liquidated items from
local retail stores. Some items are new,
others used, and some are from recently-
closed businesses.
"We never know what type of merchan-
dise we expect to sell, but we always have
a good selection of quality items," Whaley
said.
All items are sold with a 13 percent
buyer's fee, with a three percent discount
for those paying with cash, check, or debit
card.
"It's a fun way to buy stuff," Whaley
claimed. "You save a lot of money too."
All food stuff is sold on a guarantee: "We
guarantee the food to taste. If you buy
something you don't like, we'll give you a
full refund."


The auctions are one of several events
to be held at the Historic Frostproof
Depot. Two other events include the
Frostproof Market and Chicken Swap.

Frostproof Market
The Frostrpoof Market will be held
Saturday May 19 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
More than 25 vendors will be offering
a plethora of merchandise including
handmade gifts, jewelry, home decor,
creative cards, art, woodworking and
auction items.
Vendors include local businesses such
as Jennifer Hamric Photography, Jewel
Kade, Scentsry Independent Consultant,
Eye Candy, The Pampered Chef,
Tupperware, Stampin' Up, P&J Recreation,
Seacret, Twice is Nice Consignment and
Boutique, Fantasia Home Parties, Capo
Security and Mary Kay.
The event is sponsored by the
Frostproof Chamber of Commerce and
Princess Wiggle-Bottom Boutique.
"Every other city in Polk County has
a market once or twice a month but
Frostproof has nothing, so we decided to
start something like this," Kelly Banks of
Princess Wiggle-Bottom Boutique said.
"We're hoping for a big turnout," she
said. "This will be a great way for people
to see local events and talents right here
in town."
Proceeds will go to the American
Cancer Society's Relay for Life, an event
that raises money for cancer research and
awareness.

Chicken Swap
A Chicken Swap will be held Saturday
June 9.
Don't let the name fool you: the swap
will feature other small animals includ-
ing ducks, geese, quails, rabbits, and
guinea pigs, as well as produce from local
farmers.
The event will not only allow local
breeders to buy, sell and trade livestock,
but also provide an educational experi-
ence for children, especially those with


Future Farmers of America.
Head organizer RamonaWaibel was
inspired last year while helping her son
raise chickens for his FFA project. They
had visited other chicken swaps in the
state, and realized that not only were they
unaware of important information about
raising chickens, but so were other local
children.
"Basically what we are trying to do
is create an environment where kids
can meet with people that breed and
sell recognized quality birds a neat
environment where they can get local
produce, local birds, and support local
folks," Waibel said.
Representatives from the American
Poultry Association, American Bantam
Association, and Department of
Agriculture will be present to offer infor-
mation and answer questions.
Proceeds will directly fund the local
charter of the FFA and will go to purchas-
ing textbooks with APA/ABA guidelines


for raising chickens.
"Those books list the standards of
perfection for each individual breed of
chicken," Waibel said. "It's very important
that they be up to standard when they
have these books, but our local charter
doesn't have them, and it's a necessity for
helping the children get ready for show."
Chicken dinners will be served with fried
chicken, baked beans, corn, rolls, and tea.
Dinner tickets are $5 and may be pur-
chased either at the event or beforehand.
With 15-20 vendors scheduled to
appear and 200 dinners planned, Waibel
is expecting a large turnout and hopes
the swap will become a yearly or biyearly
event.

swap, contactWaibel at 863-934-3979.

Lots of oranges, but low juice prices linger


By MARVIN G. PEREZ
BLOOMBERG NEWS
NEW YORK Orange-juice fu-
tures, the worst performing com-
modity in 2012, are headed for the
biggest monthly loss since at least
1967 as Florida citrus supplies climb
as demand wanes.
Prices may end the month as low
as 90 cents a pound on ICE Futures
U.S. in New York, down 37 percent in
May, said Michael K. Smith, presi-
dent of T&K Futures and Options.
Florida's orange crop will climb
3.5 percent to 145.15 million boxes
for the season that ends in July,
according to the average estimate
of five traders and analysts before
a U.S. Department of Agriculture
report Thursday. That would be the
biggest harvest since 2009.
The commodity has plunged
49 percent from a record $2.2695
reached on Jan. 23. After jumping
24 percent in January, as the U.S.
government began a probe of im-
ports from Brazil, prices fell as the


investigation showed that levels of a
banned fungicide were so low they
weren't a public health concern.
Since Oct. 1, U.S. retail sales of
the beverage have tumbled
11 percent from the same period a
year earlier, the Florida Department
of Citrus said April 30, citing data
from Nielsen Co.
"We had this huge ridiculous run-
up for reasons that did not mate-
rialize," Smith said from Port Saint
Lucie, Fla. "People are factoring
that demand will fall more with the
slowing economy, and there's plenty
of supplies. People have their selling
shoes on."
Prices have tumbled 32 percent
in 2012, the biggest decline among
the 19 raw materials tracked by the
Thomson/Reuters Jefferies CRB
Index. Orange juice for July deliv-
ery dropped 0.6 percent to $1.16 a
pound at 8:36 a.m. on ICE Futures.
The commodity is headed for an
eighth straight loss.
Falling prices may lower costs for
Coca-Cola Co., which sells Minute


Maid, and PepsiCo Inc., the maker
of Tropicana orange-juice. The
drop may also help boost profits at
restaurants including those run by
Bob Evans Farms Inc. and at Denny's
Corp.
In January, Denny's, a family
restaurant chain with about 1,600
locations, said it would raise menu
prices to help make up for higher
raw-material costs. The company's
commodity costs rose more than
5 percent in 2011, including "signifi-
cant increases" for orange juice, the
company's director of planning and
investor relations, Whit Kincaid, said
on call with investors on Feb. 15.
Still, dry weather in Florida may
limit production and stem the
declines, Smith said.
"That's our biggest concern at the
moment," Smith said. "If we don't
get enough rain soon, we could see
prices rebound."
Futures may "consolidate" be-
tween $1.15 and $1.20 as "demand
picks up or selling is exhausted,"
Sterling Smith, a market analyst with


Country Hedging, a broker in St.
Paul Minnesota, said in a telephone
interview.
The Food and Drug
Administration, which said on
Jan. 11 it was testing shipments of
imported orange juice for the fun-
gicide, switched on March 1 from
weekly to monthly updates on the
probe. As of April 5, the agency had
detained 30 shipments of 144 that
were tested. The FDA has not issued
an update for May.

Schools to respond to bullying lawsuit


Parents claim move to different county because district didn't respond


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
The Polk County School Board is
"mounting a vigorous response" to a
bullying lawsuit filed against recently
it by the parents of a former Palmetto
Elementary School student, according to
the board's District CounselWes Bridges.
"We are readying our response,"
Bridges said, adding the response
should be filed in Circuit Court by the
end of May.
The lawsuit claims the school board
did nothing to protect a 10-year-old
child from continuous harassment by
fellow students while the child was a
student at Palmetto Elementary School
in the north Polk County community.
It also alleges the continuous bullying
forced the family to surrender their
home and move to protect him.
The suit says the child was "slammed
against concrete walls causing injuries,
tripped, grabbed, punched, pinched,


thrown down onto the concrete which
resulted in torn clothing, bloodied and
bruised legs and arms." The suit further
claims the child was repeatedly called
names.
"The plaintiffs can say what they
please," Bridges says, "while the school
board is restrained from discussing the
privacy of the child." He said the school
board is presenting in "a fact-finding
mode" investigating "broad allegations."
The family's attorney, Justin Clark of
Longwood, has said the school system
ignored the Jeffrey Johnson Stand-Up
for All Students Act, the anti-bullying
act passed by Florida in 2008. The
law prohibits bullying in school and
requires the school board to adopt poli-
cies to implement it.
Bridges says the board has a thorough
compliance policy that encourages
reporting and that it regularly investi-
gates such complaints and "deals with
them head on."
The parents say they lost their house


in Poinciana because they had to move
out of Polk County to escape the harass-
ment. They also claim the child was
doingwell in school while attending
Lake Marion Elementary, prior to being
transferred to Palmetto Elementary
in 2010. The student's parents were
told then that the child suffered with
attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
(ADHD). The family also says the child
has since been diagnosed with post-
traumatic stress and combined-type
anxiety disorders.
Instead of protecting their child, the
lawsuit claims, "the plaintiffs were lied
to, belittled, humiliated and treated
with complete disregard and disregard
for the safety of their disabled child."
The child's mother also claims the
district would not allow her to home
school or enroll him in a virtual school.
The child was removed from school in
late November 2010.
The family says they filed a complaint
with the schools seeking $300,000 in


damages and reportedly were told by
the district's Risk Management insur-
ance company that the board would not
accept or deny liability and would not
voluntarily settle their claim.
Meanwhile, Bridges maintains there
is a question of what is the difference
between "healthy socialization and
harmful bullying," but that the board's
policy strictly forbids "hitting, battery
or assault," and that those rules have
always been in place. "Bullying is a
subset of those offenses and they are all
off limits," the board lawyer said.
Bridges also said the board repeat-
edly stresses a heightened awareness of
what may be perceived as any form of
bullying.
"We keep tabs on our students
through our teachers' and administra-
tors' personal relationships with their
charges," he said. "We also always stress
vigilance and close observation."
The board is expected to file its
response to the lawsuit by May 30.


MOSI has mummies


About 150 artifacts on display at Tampa museum until September


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT

Tampa's Museum of Science and
Industry may have taken "creepy in a
good way" to new heights with their latest
exhibit "Mummies of the World."
More than 150 artifacts including the
mummies, one of which dates from more
than 6,000 years ago, are artfully displayed
in the MOSI main exhibit hall. Cloistered
in quiet out of respect for the dead, the
mummies and other funerary objects are
shown encased in glass which gives the
observer an amazing and close-up look at
the long-preserved dead.
Leading the list of exhibits is the
Detmold child, a Peruvian mummy that
predates Egypt's pharaoh King Tut by more
than 3,000 years. One of the more unusual
objects that greets visitors as they enter the
exhibit is a howler monkey from Argentina
with a fierce expression and a peculiar
feather skirt and headdress.
Also on display are some unusually
recent mummies, dating back only to
the 17th and 18th centuries. One is
the remains of a Hungarian BaronVon
Holz, a German soldier who died in the
1600s, who was buried in his best boots;
and a trio called the Vac mummies who
were a family from Hungary who died
in the 1700s. Tests have shown that the
man, woman and infant child died of
tuberculosis. They were found in a long-
forgotten church crypt in 1994.
One of the highlights of the exhibit is
a remarkably preserved pre-Columbian
mummy of a tattooed woman who was
locked in time in a seated position. She
has long, flowing hair and still wears an
amazingly preserved multicolored robe.
She was found in the Peruvian desert, be-
lieved to be the driest on earth. Scientists
have yet to determine the meaning of the
tattoos on her face or on her chest.
The exhibit is arranged in a series of
chambers draped in fabric that bring
the exhibit an ethereal feeling. The 10
interactive stations give the viewer an
insight into the science that explains
how these incredible objects provide
archeologists a window into the lives.

civilizations. There is even a station that
gives one the opportunity to see what
mummies feel like.
"This exhibit also shows us that
mummification, both naturally and
by design, has taken place all over the
world," MOSI spokeswoman Shannon
Herbon explains. The exhibit includes
rare mummies from South America,
Europe, Asia, Oceania and Egypt.
"We believe this exhibit will change
visitors' understanding of what mum-
mies are and what can be learned from
them," MOSI CEO Wit Ostrenko says.
"These mummies have been studied
using cutting edge, non-destructive
technology."
The other interactive stations show
where mummies have been found, how
decomposition works, how scientists
investigate mummies, what CT scans
can tell us, what the Egyptian Book of the
Dead tells us about the journey to the af-
terlife, how imaging tools have improved
the study of mummies, how mummies
can be linked by DNA, what mummy
hair can reveal about diet and habits, and
what was the cause of their deaths.
In addition to the human and monkey
remains, there are also mummified cats,,
lizards, birds, fish, a hyena and dogs.
The exhibit also includes both South


American and Egyptian burial objects,
Egyptian salts and resins used in mum-
mification and a pharmaceutical price
list that includes ingredients for medi-
cines made from ground mummies.
The concept for the exhibit began
with the German Mummy Project's 2004
rediscovery of some 21 specimens origi-
nally thought lost from a Mannheim,
Germany, museum. The exhibit was
formed with collaboration and exhibits
from some 21 museums, organizations
and collections from seven countries.
The exhibit, which opened in late
April, will be at MOSI until September
when it moves on to another city. Since
this is a timed-entry exhibit, reservations
are encouraged and may be made by
calling 813-987-6000. Tickets also maybe
purchased by phone. The museum is at
4801 North Fowler Avenue, Tampa.


CORRECTION
Florida Gulf Coast University opened for students in
1997 and earned accreditation from the Southern
Association of Colleges and Schools in 1999, the
fastest SACS ever awarded accreditation. The year
it opened for students was incorrect in a story
published Wednesday, May 9.

PSC's program sees



growth reflecting



national trend


For the unacquainted, early child-
hood education is all about nap times
and finger-painting, silly songs and
afternoon snacks.
In truth, the field is far more com-
plicated and growing more so all
the time. Training requirements are
more stringent than ever. Employers
are taking a more selective approach
to hiring. Research continues to
emphasize the importance of early
education in a child's long-term suc-
cess. Economic pressures have forced
many stay-at-home moms to return
to the work force, putting increased
reliance on childcare providers.
Factors such as these have
converged at Polk State College,
fueling remarkable growth in its
Early Childhood Education and
Management program.
"In the last few years, it's just ex-
ploded," said Karen Greeson, program
director.
In fact, in December 2011, the pro-
gram graduated its largest class ever,
with 32 individuals receiving either
Associate in Science or Associate in
Applied Science in Early Childhood
Education degrees, or childcare
certificates. The December total was
double the number of graduates in
previous classes, Greeson said.
The program's success has much
to do with how easy it is for students
to advance their education farther
than they ever expected to, Greeson
explained.
"They find that they can be really
successful in this field. It can be a
career, not just a job," she said.
Many times, childcare workers start
out seeking only that "just a job."
They enroll at Polk State intending
to complete 12 credit hours that
satisfy requirements for the Preschool
Certificate; the Preschool Certificate
program includes coursework for the
state-approved Florida Child Care
Professional Credential, a credential
that helps childcare centers meet
the requirements of the Florida
Department of Children and Families
and other agencies.
While some are satisfied earning the
initial 12 credit hours, with increasing
frequency, students are continuing in
the program, applying those credits
toward a childcare center manage-
ment certificate or associate degree.
Those who earn an associate degree
find that it's easy to continue even


farther in their education, pursuing a
four-year degree.
In many cases, Greeson added,
students in the program are already
working in the field. To accommodate
their work schedules, the program
offers courses during the evenings and
on weekends, as well as online.
The growth of Polk State's
Early Childhood Education and
Management program corresponds
with a national trend. The Bureau
of Labor Statistics estimates that
employment of childcare workers will
increase by 20 percent from 2010 to
2020. The employment outlook for
preschool teachers who have an asso-
ciate degree is even more optimistic,
with a 25 percent increase from 2010
to 2020 expected.
Childcare workers are wise to
advance educationally, said Polk State
adjunct instructor Cherry McClellan,
giving them an edge in an increasingly
demanding field.
"Because of mandated rules and
regulations, and with the background
research that's proven that it is
possible to increase intelligence in a
child's first five years of life, childcare
centers have to have quality employ-
ees who understand child develop-
ment," said McClellan, who directs
First Steps at First United, a childcare
center in Lakeland.
"Employees have to be well-trained
and understand social, cognitive and
emotional development. Teachers
are going to have to be increasingly
educated."
McClellan added that more than
half of her 30 employees recently
committed to pursue associate's
degrees at Polk State as part of First
Steps' efforts to meet more stringent
accreditation standards.
Student Andrea Williams is currently
working toward her associate degree,
and dreams of one day opening a
childcare center strictly for infants -
an age group she feels is underserved.
Just one semester into the program,
she said she already better under-
stands the way children think and
learn.
"A big way they learn is by watching
adults model things like handwriting
and other skills. They copy you and
that's how they learn," she said. "In
just my first semester, I already know
and understand much more about
children than I did a few months ago."

It begins with the natural feeling that
one wants to serve. These leaders are
more like dream makers, assisting the
person or persons they severe, making
their dreams reality," said Terrell.
He said the class wants to make
a positive impact on students, their
lives as well as their education and
objectives. They want to provide
the students with the resources to
enhance their educational output and
productivity.

Baptist Church in Auburndale. The ben-
efit organized by Spradlen Promotions
was held in Brady Hutto's memory to
help the Hutto's family with expenses.
Brady was a 2-1-month-old who per-
ished April 27 when an SUV backing
up in a parking lot ran over him. It
happened prior to the Auburndale High
School Bloodhounds' regional semifinal
against Titusville.
The benefit featured numerous gospel
music groups, barbecue, raffle tickets,
face painting, bounce-houses for kids
and demonstrations by Auburndale Fire
and Police Departments.
More than $15,000 was raised for fu-
neral expenses with the combined help
of Spradlen Promotions, Auburndale
High School, local businesses and
private citizens.
If anyone would like to donate to the
Brady Hutto family, contact Spradlen
Promotions at 863-528-1140.

Study: We're going to get bigger


Statistics show

ByJEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
A recently-released study shows
the percentage of adult Americans to
reach overweight or obese status is
going to rise 7 percent in the next 18
years and Polk County is following the
trend.
Kicking off a government-led
conference on the public health
ramifications of all those expand-
ing waistlines, the authors of a new
report estimated the cost of treating
those additional obese people for
diabetes, heart disease and other/
medical conditions would add up to
nearly $550 billion over the next two
decades.
In a recent presentation to the
Polk County Commission, Dr.
Daniel Haight, director of Polk
County Health Department, said the
county ranks 33rd in overall health
of Florida's 67 counties. He said later
of overweight and obese people, Polk
County is in the fourth quartile in the
state, and the fourth is the worst.
He said not eating correctly is only
one reason people are overweight.
Other factors include how we live.
"Obesity is.tied into a number of
things," he said.
He said the individual is a huge part
of it, not saying to ignore going to the
doctor, but a lot of it takes place aside
from what the doctor tells a person.
"One good start to getting healthy is
something you do outside the doc-
tor's office. First get that and they can
give you advice and they can tell you
something that may be wrong," he
said. "Then figure out exercises you
can do. For instance I hate to jog and
you won't get me to jog. But I love
tennis. You can tailor make it to your
need."
He also said don't just tie in your
weight to your health status. While
being overweight is dangerous in
many health concerns, people should
be aware of their BMI, which is the
body mass index.
The BMI takes into account a
person's height and "evens everyone
out," Haight said. There are websites
that can figure out a person's BMI.
A BMI of 20-24.9 is overweight and
25-30 is obese.
"Knowing where you stand is some-
thing where yot can have a baseline,"
he said.
In the national report the most
important aspect was the aging
of the population, which tends to
nudge many overweight adults into
the obese category and to push

obesity a growing concern in Polk and elsewhere


many of those who are already obese
into "severely obese" territory. The
number of severely obese Americans
is expected to grow from about
5 percent today to 11 percent in 2030,
according to the study.
'The findings are based on data-
collected from 1990 through 2008
as part of the Behavioral Risk Factor
Surveillance System, a survey by
the Centers for Disease Control and
health departments in the states.
Measures of obesity were based on
body mass index, which is calculated
as weight in kilograms divided by
height in meters squared.

Preventing obesity
Public health experts have con-
cluded that the best way to attack
the obesity crisis is to prevent people
from becoming obese in the first
place.
They place a particular.emphasis
on children, based on a statistic
that emerged from the landmark
Bogalusa Heart Study: 77 percent of
obese children become obese adults,
while only 7 percent of non-obese
children do.
In Polk County the percentage of
overweight children decreased from
14.1 percent in 2008 to 11.7 in 2011.
Haight said neighborhoods can
help take the lead in this.
"We have groups doing the best
they can. But when it comes to doing
something attacking the greater
community," we need everyone to be
involved, he said.
He said the United Way is provid-
ing funding to help weight loss and
that causes a direct impact, but Polk
County government can help design
communities with sidewalks and
playgrounds and businesses can also
help.
Debbie Zimmerman, wellness
manager for the Polk County School
District, has a program working
toward better health. The mission of
the program is to improve employee;
health and well-being and reduce
risk factors that can lead to death
and disability.
The school district is self-insured
and has 13,000 employees. Including
those who have retired or are no
longer with the district but are still
on the health plan, there are 19,000
people.
Zimmerman said the subject of
obesity is a huge issue in terms of
a person's health and cost to them-
selves and health policies.
"With this you have to also look
at the cost the obese person is


incurring in the health plan itself.
The average cost per employee
nationwide is costing the health plan
a lot more. It can lead to diabetes,
it's connected with osteoporosis
and many cancers. A lot of the costs
you're incurring is because the
employee is obese," she said.
The school district's program also
helps those not in the school district
and has partnerships for the district's
employees with Gold's Gym and is
looking into a weight-loss program
called LOSE, which stands for
Lessons on Sensible Eating.
The program deals in a small way
with the students but, she said,
the school district is going to have
a meeting on policy changes on
May 22 and health issues are on the
agenda.

How to deal with obesity
Tackling the obesity problem is
not something that will happen
overnight, and watching what you
eat is only one part, Haight said.
"It's diet and exercise," Polk County
Health Department nutritionist Susan
Kisler said. "We recommend a food
intake of fresh, frozen or canned fruits
and vegetables."
She said people need to concen-
trate on eating whole grains, corn,
bread, rice and lower-fat meats and
poultry.
"And stay away from the processed
foods," she said. "The chips, cookies


and candies ... most are buy one,
get one free, but I say it's no value if
it's not healthy."
She said use no-fat or low-fat
milk. Children who are younger than
2 should drink whole milk, but once
you get older it is healthier to stay
away from the fattier milk.
She also emphasized exercise.
"It's such an important compo-
nent to do for about 30 minutes
a day," she said. "We need to find
something fun. Not everyone likes
to run, but maybe something like
swimming is a viable option," she
said.
She said once a person is obese
the downward spiral starts and it
moves quickly. And, she said it af-
fects every age group.
"We've seen evidence that reduc-
ing video time, television, computer
games or whatever, it really does
affect the weight status of children.
We say limit those video items."
She also said limit the sweetened
beverages and the fruit juices.
"Those have a lot of calories. It's
better to eat the fruit than drink it
because the fruit has the fiber in it.
The juice is processed," she said.
Making the change is also some-
thing people have to get into their
heads and know it's a quality of life
issue.
"Obesity is a contributing risk
factor. We know what we can do,"
Haight said. "Turn off the television
one night a week and get out there
with your family."

Guilt over sudden death of young man


D EAR DR. DONOHUE; My son died
suddenly at age 45. An autopsy
found that he had aortic valve ste-
nosis. Two years previous, his doctor had
him take a transesophageal echocardio-
gram because he had a heart murmur.
The cardiologist told my son to come
back in three years. He said he might
need a valve replacement when he was
in his 60s or 70s. Should he have been
under a cardiologist's care all this time?
He saw a dentist four days before his
death. Could bacteria have entered his
blood from the dental work? Would they
have killed him that fast? I have lots of
guilt. Can you help me understand how
a big, strong, healthy-looking man can
drop dead in the early morning? S.L.
ANSWER: I know of no words to
soothe your sorrow. You and your family
have my sincere condolences.
The aortic valve is the heart valve
that closes after the heart has pumped
out its blood. Closure keeps blood from
leaking back into the heart. "Stenosis"
indicates that the valve has narrowed.
A narrowed orifice for the valve makes
the heart beat harder in order to pump
blood. .-..-.
Signs and symptoms of aortic stenosis
don't appear until later in life, when the
area of the aortic orifice has diminished

considerably. Your son had the ultimate
test in inspecting the aortic valve, a
soundwave picture of the heart with
the camera close to the heart in the
body's esophagus-- a transesophageal
echocardiogram. The valve had not nar-
rowed to the point that treatment was
indicated. The dental work done four
days before his death no longer requires
antibiotic treatment to prevent mouth
bacteria from attacking the heart. In
only a few unusual heart conditions is
this still the practice. Aortic stenosis is
not one of those conditions.
Three signs indicate that aortic
stenosis needs immediate attention:
breathlessness when active, chest pain
when active and fainting spells. Your
son had none of these. An uncommon,

unpreventable and rare complication of
aortic stenosis is the sudden onset of a
heart rhythm that often is fatal. I believe
that's the cause of your son's sudden
death. His death was unanticipated
and unable to be anticipated. No one is
guilty of neglect.

tion on heart valve disorders can order

Lonely hearts are aging hearts


new study, published in the
journal Psychology and Ag-
ing, by researchers at Cornell
University, reports that the social pain
of loneliness appears to accelerate the
heart's normal aging process, increas-
ing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
After assessing the study par-
ticipants' perceived sense of isolation
(loneliness), the researchers measured
cardiovascular reactivity and recovery
in 91 young adults (ages 18 to 30) and
91 older adults (ages 65-80) who were
asked to give a speech and do some
mental arithmetic in a lab setting.
Blood pressure readings were taken
before, during and after the tests.
"The most striking thing we found
was that the cardiovascular response
of the lonely young adults to the social
stressor task looked more like that of
the nonlonely older adults," said lead
author Anthony Ong, an associate
professor of human development.
Not surprisingly, older adults had
higher resting blood pressure, greater
cardiovascular stress reactivity and
longer cardiovascular recovery times
compared with younger adults. Ong
said loneliness increased each of these
measures but had even greater negative

effects in older adults, putting them at
the greatest risk.
"I think it's helpful to distinguish the
emotional pangs that are associated
with acute loneliness from the more
chronic feelings of distress that accom-
pany perceived deficits in the quality
of our social relationships," Ong said.
"Viewed from this perspective, acute
loneliness may be seen as adaptive,
signaling us to repair social connec-
tions. However, it is the persistence of
loneliness over time that may set the
stage for health problems in later life."

Best medicine
A veterinarian was feeling ill and
went to see her doctor.


- The doctor asked he-all of the usual
questions: about symptoms, how long
had they been occurring, etc. After many
minutes of inquiry, she interrupted the
doctor and said, "Hey look, I'm a vet. I
don't need to ask my patients all of these
kinds of questions. I can tell what's wrong
just by looking. Why can't you?"
The doctor nodded, then proceeded
to look the sick vet up and down.
Finally, he wrote a prescription and
gave it to the veterinarian. "Here you
go," he said. "Of course, if this doesn't
work, we'll have to put you down."

Observation
"I am pretty sure that, if you will
be quite honest, you will admit that
a good rousing sneeze, one that tears
open your collar and throws your hair
into your eyes, is really one-of life's
sensational pleasures."

Benchley (1889-1945)

another medicine used for gout attacks,
and it's been around for many, many
decades. I'm positive that it, too, is
obtainable in Myanmar. For prevention
of attacks, medicines that lower uric
acid work well. Uric acid is a byproduct
of cell chemistry and cell recycling. It's
also responsible for gout. Crystals of
uric acid form in the joints when blood
uric acid is high. Allopurinol, a medicine
that slows uric acid production, or
probenecid, a medicine that encourages
the passage of uric acid into the urine,
are both easily obtained in your country.
They've been used for many years all
over the world.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am 85 and
a retired RN. My daughter makes our
doctor appointments for the same time.
Last week, I knew the doctor was in a
hurry. The appointment lasted less than
10 minutes. He went directly from my
room to the next. The nurse told my
daughter that the doctor was sick that
day. He did not wash his hands between
patients. I would appreciate an article
on the importance of doctors and
nurses washing their hands. L.S.
ANSWER: What can I say? You're right
on. There's no excuse for not adhering
to the most effective way to prevent the
spread of germs.

Growing industry helps diabetics

maintain active lifestyles


A whole industry has grown up
around freeing diabetics to lead less
restricted lives.
New on the market, or on the verge
of being introduced, are three "firsts":
tubeless insulin pumps, a needleless
blood-glucose monitoring system, and
diabetic-friendly frozen foods.
With the number of diabetics
growing worldwide 246 million
at last count, according to the World
Health Organization businesses are
motivated.
In 2011, diabetes therapeutic products
were a $23.7 billion industry feeding a
growing population that's starving for
a better quality of life, said Chef Robert
Lewis, "The Happy Diabetic," author
of two cookbooks for people with the
metabolic disorder.
"It wasn't long ago that Type 1 diabet-
ics had to be sure they packed ample
sterile syringes and insulin, whether they
were going to work for the day or on a
road trip," he says. "Monitoring blood
sugar levels, which is crucial to keeping
vital organs healthy, was painful, primi-
tive and hit-or-miss.
'And food? That's been the hardest.
A diabetes diagnosis can feel like a life
sentence of bland eating."
Among the "firsts" Lewis says diabetics
can look forward to:
The first tubeless insulin pump.
Thirty years ago, people with insulin-
dependent diabetes had to give them-
selves shots around the clock to control
their blood sugar levels. In some cases,
diabetics were hospitalized to ensure
they got the insulin necessary to prevent
ketoacidosis, a condition that can lead
to coma and death. In 1983, the insulin
pump was introduced. It attaches to the


body and provides continuous insulin
injections. But while it was a major
breakthrough, it can be bulky and awk-
ward, with a dangling catheter. The most
recent innovation is a streamlined ver-
sion called the OmniPad. It has no tubes,
it's smaller and it attaches anywhere
on the body with adhesive. It also has a
built-in glucose-monitoring system.
The first needleless glucometer.
The Symphony tCGM System uses
ultrasound to monitor blood-sugar
levels, which will free people from the
painful pricks needed to get a small
blood sample for testing multiple times
a day. The device, which attaches with
adhesive to the body, continuously
tracks glucose levels day and night and
can send the readings to your smart
phone. Under development for more
than a decade, Symphony is undergoing
the studies necessary to win regulatory
approval.
Diabetic-friendly frozen meals.
Meals-in-a-Bun (www.lifestylechefs.
netfwill arrive in Northeast U.S. grocery
stores beginning in July and roll out
across the country through the end of
the year. They're low on the glycemic
index, low in sugar, carbs, trans fats and
sodium, high in soluble fiber and lean
protein.
And many Americans are eating
healthier diets less meat, gluten, salt
and sugar, Lewis says. Tasty foods for
diabetics will be good choices for them,
too.
"What's good for diabetics is good for
everyone," he says. 'And you don't have
to give up one teaspoon of flavor."
"There's a reason why I am called 'The
Happy Diabetic'; I have discovered the
joy of nutrition-rich food," Lewis said.

Robotics tech


enables cutting-edge


treatment for cancer


Cancer patients worldwide and here in
Florida are making a new choice in their
care robotic radiosurgery a revolu-
tionary advancement offered locally by
CyberKnife Centers of Tampa Bay.
CyberKnife targets tumors with ac-
curacy unparalleled in other radiation
oncology treatment, giving patients
more control over their treatment and,
more importantly, their lives.
Robotically assisted techniques have
enhanced the capabilities of many
medical specialties, from cardiology
and gynecology, to neurosurgery and
orthopedics, and are now being used
with great success in the field of oncol-
ogy. Although it sounds like a surgical
procedure, CyberKnife treatment is
completely non-invasive and involves
no cutting. In fact, CyberKnife is the
world's first and only robotic radiosur-
gery system designed to treat tumors
throughout the body with a pain-free,
non-surgical option.
A robotic arm allows radiation to be
directed toward any part of the body
from any direction. This robotic mount-
ing differentiates the system by allowing
for instant repositioning of the radia-
tion delivery without movement of the
patient.
"Since its creation at Stanford in 1994,
CyberKnife has literally changed not
only the way we treat cancer, but who
we can treat," said Debra Freeman, a
Board-Certified radiation oncologist at
the center.
Freeman, a renowned specialist in
radiosurgery, is responsible for bringing
the second CyberKnife system to the
state of Florida in 2004.
"Because the system is completely
non-invasive, we can perform life-
saving procedures on patients who
couldn't otherwise be treated with
chemotherapy or surgery."

Robotics advantage
Other treatment options have a mar-
gin of error, where radiation directed at
the cancer can also damage surround-
ing healthy tissue.
"With CyberKnife, we can literally


paint just the tumor within a sub-milli-
meter with radiation beamlets, and all
but eliminate the damage to the sur-
rounding tissue," Freeman said. "This is
a critical component when treating near
vital organs like the lungs, spinal cord
and heart."
Another important benefit from
CyberKnife is treatment time. Because
of the high-dose, highly-targeted
radiation beams, patients are typically
finished in three to five sessions.
"Time is one of the greatest advan-
tages we can offer our patients. Some
radiation options take up to 45 sessions,
and chemotherapy can take months to
complete," Freeman said. "This tech-
nology allows us to effectively treat the
patient and more quickly let them get
back to their lives again."
"We are continuing to explore every-
thing CyberKnife can do, constantly
utilizing it in new ways in clinical
trials," she said. "In fact, just earlier this
year, treatment using the system for
a chronic nerve pain condition called
trigeminal neuralgia showed some
promising results. While there is still
more research to be done, we know
there are many other possibilities for
this machine and robotic technology in
general."
The CyberKnife system has been
approved for cancer treatment by the
Food and Drug Administration since
2001. Since then, more and more
insurance companies are recogniz-
ing the benefits of this technology for
reimbursement.
As a newer technology, CyberKnife
also works closely with several patient
advocacy organizations that offer legal
and financial assistance to educate and
promote patient coverage.
"We do all we can to ensure patients'
insurance will cover their procedures
including working out payment options.
Ultimately, it's about doing what's right
for the patient and their disease," said
Kevin Mayeski, B.S., RTT, director at
CyberKnife Centers of Tampa Bay.

Florida Hospital Wauchula hosted
an expert team of trauma medical
directors and nursing directors from
Pensacola Hospital, Tampa General,
Lakeland Regional Medical Center,
Bayfront Medical Center and St.
Joseph's Hospital to teach a one-day
Rural Trauma Team Development
class.
This statewide course addressed the
educational needs specific to rural
communities, and emphasizes a team
approach to initial care and resuscita-
tion of a traumatized patient in a
systematic, concise approach.
Attending were emergency depart-
ment nurses from Florida Hospital


Heartland Medical Center in Sebring
and Lake Placid, Florida Hospital
Wauchula, Emergency Medical
Services staff, and paramedic students
from South Florida Community
College. Funding for the training was
provided by a grant from the Office of
Rural Health. -
"Because trauma is a sudden and
unexpected life-changing event, it
has the potential to affect any of
us. Florida Hospital Wauchula was
blessed by a state grant to provide
disaster training for our area's emer-
gency staff member," said Florida
Hospital Wauchula Vice President and
Administrator Linda Adler.

How do Real Estate agents What's HOT in the marketplace?

market their listings?


Real Estate Brokers market their listings in a variety
of ways. This will differ with each individual office
somewhat.
Most Real Estate Brokers use the Multiple List-
ing System, newspapers, signs, magazines, and the
internet to market their properties. The effectiveness
of marketing will also depend upon each market area
and conditions. The ultimate goal is to sell the prop-
erty as soon as possible at the best price for the seller.
We are now experiencing a buyer's market, which-
means that the mar- ASKYOUR
ket conditions are in
the buyer's favor. REAL ESTAE
There are a lot of PRO
homes and proper-
ties to choose from David McLean
which keeps prices Prime-Plus Realty,
down. The interest Inc.
rates are very low
which also is contrib-
uting to the market activity.
What if I get a better offer after I ahve Accepted
another one?
It is not uncommon to have multiple offers on a
home or property. It must be clear that an offer is an
offer until it be comes a contract between the buyer
and seller.
You may choose to honor a verbal agreement, how-
ever, the agreement needs to be in written form and
signed by all parties to be considered enforceable in
a court of law. Real Estate Brokers are not allowed to
give legal advice, so we recommend that you consult
an attorney to review a contract before you sign it
and get any questions you have regarding legal issues
answered.

Realtor David McLean of Prime Plus Realty, Inc. says this home listed by Prime Plus Real Estate, is a 4 bedroom 4 bath pool home
located in Winter Haven, and recently sold for $144,000.


Once you have signed a contract, you will be bound
by those terms and conditions. You may accept a
back-up offer if it is clear to all parties concerned that
it is a back-up offer to the contract which is currently
in force.
How long before i should consider reducing my
homes sale price?
That will depend upon several factors, most of
which you should have considered when you decided
to put you home on the market. The most important


factor in selling a home is the price. It must be in line
with the condition of the home, the location, and the
comparable market prices of similar homes in your
area.
The time frame for reducing your price will also de-
pend on what your goal is. If you are not getting much
activity in a few months, then you should consider
reducing the price if possible. Some people put their
homes on the market at an inflated price and just wait
for a "miracle buyer". Thisis never a good idea, since
your home may become market weary.
