NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
There were two pieces of good no
make that great news at Frostproof's
Nliddle Senior High School commence-
ment exercises last Tuesday.
The greatest, of course, was the cel-
ebrating of 101 graduates in the Class of
2012. The second best development of
the night Was Mother Nature, playing her
part, keeping rain showers that dotted the
Ridge just far enough away to complete
the ceremony.
Four student speakers highlighted the
occasion, including Valedictorian Jenna
Lanoue and Salutatorian Zack Jenkins.
Lanoue noted the year came with the
potentially hard-to-deal-with change of
principals during the Christmas holiday
when then principal Stephen White
retired, replaced by Fort Meade assistant
principal Kyle Windham.
"The most difficult thing for us this year
was the transition of principals," Lanoue
noted.' "Suddenly, 'good morning number
one staff and number one students and
working bell to bell' became'doing what
you're supposed to be doing, where you're
supposed to be at, completing every task
with quality and excellence.' Knowing that
everyone missed Mr. White, Mr. Windham
did an amazing job coming in and taking
over as our principal. He may not always
get the recognition and thanks he de-
serves but I know that we appreciate what
he did."
Salutatorian Zack Jenkins spoke about
strength, both of person and spirit.
"I believe there is another kind of
strength other than physical strength; it's
a strength that comes through adversity,"
he said. "Physical strength is great but
that's not what gets us through life, that
kind of strength is inside of us. This inner
strength is the might and the confidence
we have inside of ourselves that helps
us make those tough but very important
choices in the face of adversity that have
a direct correlation to where we will be in
the future."
Several special guests from the Polk
County School District attended the
Tuesday, June 5 event at Faris Brannen
Stadium, including school board mem-
bers Debra Wright and Lori Cunningham,
athletic director Don Bridges, government
affairs liaison Wendy Dodge and director
of grant acquisition Marcia Ford.
Hanna Nicole Sikes led the even in the

VIEWPOINT


More efficient management of prisons


A recent study by the Pew Center on the States
highlights the high costs of the nation's get-tough-on-
crime policies and Florida's in particular.
To be sure, it also notes a payoff in public safety.
Prison expansion and longer prison terms are given
substantial credit for the decline in the rates of
serious crime in the past two decades. To put a rough
number on it, the study says, "Experts differ on
precise figures, but they generally conclude that the
increased use of incarceration accounted for one-
quarter to one-third of the crime drop in the 1990s.
"Beyond the crime control benefit, most Americans
support long prison terms for serious, chronic and
violent offenders as a means of exacting retribution
for reprehensible behavior."
However, the Pew Center maintains that more
prisons and harsher sentences from here on won't
do more than siphon money from state budgets. The
study calls for more alternative rehabilitative services,
particularly for non-violent offenders, a strategy that
could slow the rate of recidivism while saving costs in
a time of budget shortfalls.
Among the states highlighted in the report, Florida
-stands out. The report notes:
The average offender released in 2009 served


Our Viewpoint
3 years in custody, compared to 1.1 years in 1990,
which was the low among all states at the time. Most
of the rise in time served took place during the 1990s
as Florida cracked down on crime following a number
of horrific cases. The Legislature enacted a law requir-
ing offenders to serve 85 percent of their sentence.
Tougher penalties were enacted for most offenses.
The result? A 166-percent increase in the average
offender's time served.
Violent offenders went from less than one year in
custody in 1990 to 5 years in 2009, an increase in 137
percent.
Property crime offenders went from .9 years in
1990 to 2.7 years in 2009. That was a drop, however,
from a high of 3.2 years in 2000. Overall, it represents
an increase of 181 percent.
Those jailed for drug crimes spent an average .8
years in jail in 1990. By 2009, that number was up to
2.3 years, a change of 194 percent. Again, though, it
was down slightly from a peak in 2000.
As for the cost, the 22 additional months in prison
for the average offender cost taxpayers an estimated


$38,477. Multiplying that by the number of offenders
released in 2009, the total cost for the longer prison
stays came to $1.4 billion.
How to save money while ensuring public safety?
The Pew Center study removes violent offenders
from its calculations and proposes a model that bring
a reduction in length of prison stay that "would not
compromise public safety." The bottom line is 14
percent of the prison population could be considered
for release with minimal risk to the public and a
lesser likelihood they'd re-offend.
The hard number they come up with is 2,640
offenders, or 3 percent of the prison population. Not
a huge number, but it would have brought a savings
to the state of $54 million in 2004. Considering the
smaller budget savings touted by prison privatization
proponents in Florida, it's certainly something the
state should follow up on.
As the report says: "There is a point when offenders
become a low risk for release and more time served
does not result in additional crimes prevented ...
At that point, greater time served begins to provide
diminishing returns in crimes prevented at a substan-
tial cost to the taxpayer."
It's just a matter of efficiency.


A better way for Florida

to ensure accurate voter rolls


Over the past few weeks, I've been
asked to comment on the state's efforts
to purge the voter rolls, the methodol-
ogy by which it came up with the initial
and revised lists, and the propriety
of the U.S. Department of Justice's
intervention.
As a brief history, Gov. Rick Scott
directed Florida's Secretary of State
to undertake an effort to purge non-
citizens from the voter rolls. Initially,
the Division of Elections identified
roughly 180,000 potential non-citizens
by searching a computer database from
the state's Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles. After making
comparisons to the voter registration
database, it whittled the list to 2,600
voters and sent those names to the
counties just months before the 2012
elections.
At the top of the list was Miami-Dade,
where 359 voters have had to prove they
were Americans, and an additional 26
were determined to be citizens by the
county. A mere 10 voters were either
ineligible, or requested to be removed,
from the rolls.
In Broward County, 259 voters
were given 30 days to prove they
were Americans. Among them: Bill
Internicola, a 91-year-old Army veteran
of World War II, who earned the Bronze
Star and Legion of Honor for his service
at the Battle of the Bulge.
Also in Broward, Maureen Russo got
a government letter challenging where
she was born. She sent a copy of her
passport immediately. She was born in
Akron, Ohio.
The stories don't stop there. In
Hillsborough, another World War II vet,


Paula Dockery
FMIT93


Archibald Bowyer, 91, was forced to
prove his citizenship. And in Seminole,
Supervisor of Elections Mike Ertel
posted a picture of a so-called ineligible
voter holding his passport.
Across the state, stories about mis-
takes raise doubts about the integrity
of the voter purge. It will be interesting
to see how many of the original 180,000
voters or even the 2,600 targeted vot-
ers will be removed. The preliminary
data indicates a very small percentage,
as evidenced by Miami-Dade, which
found 10 illegal voters out of 395 a
mere 2.5 percent.
Broward Supervisor of Elections
Brenda Snipes told the Miami Herald:
"List maintenance is ongoing. We would
have gotten folks off the rolls if they are
not supposed to be there." To put this
in perspective, Broward has more than
a million registered voters and its list
of potentially ineligible voters had 259
names.
We can all agree that we want our
voter rolls to be as accurate as possible,
eliminating non-citizens and voters
that have died. Where the disagree-
ment begins is in the manner that this

Coffee, tea,
Just when it appeared that the only
competition left in the airline industry
was to see which carrier could rip you
off the worst, Air Baltic is doing some-
thing to make flying more pleasant.
Holy Airline Food, Batman!
Air Baltic (which admittedly I had
never heard of) has introduced its
"SeatBuddy" system.
Whether it lets you choose to sit next
to your child, spouse, or significant
other which the big name airlines
now charge extra for is unclear.
But it does let you choose the degree
of social interaction you would prefer at
35,000 feet.

You get three choices.
The first mode is "work," in which
your chosen seatmate is supposed to let
you get some work done.
The second is "business talk," in
which your next seat neighbor is

The third option is "relax," which calls
for a traveler who will shut up and let
you take a nap, or at least allow you to
pretend to read the book that you took

signal for "Leave me alone!"

Since your air conditioning and heating unit uses as much as
half of your energy costs, it only makes sense to see if it needs
replacing. In most cases, the energy savings can help make up
for the cost of a new unit, especially if yours is over ten years old.

Love of reading, kids drove retiring school media specialist


Merkle brings 40 year career to

After 40 years of fostering a love of
reading in students, with 22 years spent
in Polk County, Joanne Merkle has
retired as library media specialist from
Frostproof Middle-Senior High School.
"I love reading and I wish to foster
that love into others," Merkle said. "I'll
do whatever it takes to get a book into
the hands of students."
Born in Bridgeport, Conn., in 1950,
Merkle always wanted to teach when
she grew up. She fondly remembers
playing teacher with the neighborhood
children in the attic of her parents'
house at age 5.
During her years at St. James School
and St. Joseph High School, the nuns
provided her with an excellent influence
and inspired her to further pursue a
career in teaching.
She attended Lesley University in
Cambridge, Mass., for two years be-
fore transferring to the University of
Bridgeport. After graduating with her


bachelor's in Elementary Education in
1972, she began her career as a fourth
grade teacher in Live Oaks Elementary
School in Milford, Conn.
She began considering her options
for a master's degree, which is required
of Connecticut teachers, but could not
decide upon a field of study. She did
not care for any of the conventional
fields such as reading or elementary
education.
Her principal, Dr. Bob D'Ambrose,
suggested that she master in what was
then a revolutionary new field: library
science.
"This was a new degree, he saw the
trend, and I took his advice and I'm so
glad I did," Merkle said.
It was then that she decided to switch
her focus from being a teacher to a
library media specialist. The new career
path was fitting for her considering
her prior experience in media: she was
a photographer and her father was a
videographer.
"I knew most of the stuff, so I decided
that I might as well go with it," she said.

Merkle shares a memory with some students. Tables were filled with memories from the golf
team and media center, and there was a brief Powerpoint presentation that also played.
"Media sections were an up and coming the right place at the right time."

She graduated with her master's de-
gree from Fairfield University in 1978.
She would go on to earn post-gradu-
ate credit at the University of Wyoming
where she worked in the university
library and later as a teacher at Linford
Elementary in Laramie, Wyoming.
She moved to Carroll County,
Maryland, where she worked in several
greater Baltimore Area schools until
moving to Florida in 1990.
While most people would consider
moving a disadvantage, Merkle saw it
as the exact opposite.
"Moving around, you get to teach
different students and experience
different ideas," she said. "I was very
fortunate. Even when moving around,
I always had a job and had multiple
offers."
Her career in Florida began at Elbert
Elementary in Winter Haven before
transferring to Lake Alfred Elementary
for seven years, where she was con-
ferred Teacher of the Year in 1993.
She was later hired at Frostproof
Middle-Senior High School to help
open the new library, which had moved
from the main building upstairs to a
separate building that now held the
main library, two computer labs, and a


Longtime friend Annette True, left, was one of

of well-wishers.
television studio.
During her career, she always con-
ceived of ideas to better serve students
and attract them to reading.
"Students are our customers and we
need to meet their needs," she said.
One of her suggestions was to open
a caf6 similar to those found in book-
stores such as Barnes and Noble or
Books-A-Million.
"Not only did it increase visitation,
but it also raised money to help us
provide better services," she said. 'All
the money went back to the library to
help provide new books, resources, and
technology that other schools didn't
have."


PHOTOS PROVIDED
Okay, someone might have a little too much time on their hands. But whoever came up with
these clever decorations for Merkle's retirement soiree sure should be commended!


Aside from inspiring students to
read, she also coached 10 years of girl's
golf, even winning the Polk County
Girls Golf Coach Of The Year in 2009
and 2011.
Merkle lives with her partner Don
Hattery and has two children and four
grandchildren.
. Now that she has retired, Merkle has
planned several trips for the next three
years, including one this fall to New
England.
Working with students and faculty
will be the one thing she will miss the
most now that she has retired.


"Every day was a new challenge with
the kids I taught and people I worked
with, and I will miss them dearly," she
said.
Merkle has become concerned with
the state of education in this country
and feels that it needs serious reform.
"Much has stayed the same consider-
ing that we haven't changed our edu-
cational model since the 1800's," she
claims. "The world has changed and
so have students, and education needs
to change with them, and it has not.
We're under using technology when we
should be using it to the maximum."


Merkle has built quite a good girl's golf program at the school. Players that were on hand for her
farewell included, from left: Maddie Aldrich, Samantha Franks, Lissa Raines Maisol Espinoza and

NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET

Jenna Lanoue, 18, achieved her dream of
graduating valedictorian from Frostproof
Middle-Senior High School last Tuesday night.
"It feels great," Lanoue said. "I'm very
honored. I worked hard to achieve it, and I-
accomplished what I wanted to do."
Lanoue always wanted to be valedictorian.
Her teachers and parents always commented
on her intelligence and good grades, but she
never truly believed them.
"Ever since I was in seventh grade, my teach-
ers always said I was smart but I never saw it,"
she said. "But the more I went on through high
school, the more I began to see it. Around my
junior year, my college counselor said I was
top in my class. It was then that it hit me that I
was as smart as people said I was."
Lanoue excels in both math and science,
though her toughest class was calculus. Her
favorite class was physics; her least favorite,
English.
"I could barely pass an English class if I
wanted to," she said, jokingly.
She attributes her success to the motivation
she received from her parents and teachers.
The teacher she claimed motivated her the
most was William Harben who teaches chem-
istry, physics, and SAT/ACT prep.
"He always pushed me to do more, ask
questions, and figure things out on my own
without having to explain everything," she
said. "That's a concept I feel more students
should have."
Another thing that aided in her success was
the relationships she made with friends and
teachers, her favorite aspect in high school
and what she considers the most important.
"Relationships you make in high school are
what make or break you," she said. "If you
have wrong friends, you're more likely to be
pulled down and not succeed; but if you make
the right friends, they will give you a support
system both in and out of school to get you
through and make you more likely to succeed."
Lanoue has received much support from her

commencement exercises at Faris Brannen Stadium.


parents Pammy MacCurrah and Bill Lanoue,
her older brother Will Stafford, 23, and young-
er sister Lanoue, 16.
She was the brass section leader and the
band captain.
She has been dual-enrolled at Polk State
College taking basic college courses during the
summer.
She plans on earning a nursing degree from
Florida Southern University in Tampa. She
dreams of working at a children's hospital.
Her advice to other students is to work hard
and buckle down: "Keep your head on straight
and don't let things change who you are and
what you want to do and what you think is
important."


LANOUE'S SPEECH
(Editor's Note: This is the speech given by Valedictorian Jenna Lanoue at last week's
graduation ceremony.)
Friends, family I'd like to thank you all for coming tonight to support the class
of 2012. There is no way that we could have made it where we are now without the
support of our families, friends, and staff of Frostproof that stood behind us and,
wanted to see us succeed. The most difficult thing for us this year was the transition
of principals.
Suddenly,"good morning number one staff and number one students and working
bell to bell" became "doing what you're supposed to be doing, where you're supposed
to be at, completing every task with quality and excellence" Knowing that everyone
missed Mr. White, Mr. Windham did an amazing job coming in and taking over as our
principal. He may not always get the recognition and thanks he deserves but I know
that we appreciate what he did.
I would also like to thank all of the teachers that stood behind us. Every student
has a different teacher and we'd be here all night if we let them tell their stories. But
there are three teachers.
I would like to thank specifically. Ms. Kincaid your classes were always the
highlight of my week. From learning calculus to the random gossip there was
never a dull moment. But you were also there to give advice if we needed it or would
listen.. .or just give your opinion. Thank you.
Mr. Harben I don't even know where to begin. You were the teacher that pushed
me. Forced me to be able to learn on my own because you knew it was a skill that all
students needed. But you were also the one that drove me insane for three years with
your sarcastic comments.
Now looking back, you were just showing me what could happen if I ever dropped
the ball and I thank you for that.
And Mr. Blackmon -- you were more of a friend than a teacher. I could go to
you about anything and just talk- no matter what it was about. You were there to give
me advice, or improve my music abilities. Our history lessons with Mr. Carter during
your planning periods helped me pass my class (even if you guys did disagree with
my teacher). Our talks about life also helped me to become my own person and trust
my own judgement. Thank you both for always being there.
Lastly I would like to thank everyone else that was there for me. Mr. Loveless,
Ms. Youtsler, and especially my friends, and my family. Mom, you're mom but you're
also my best friend. I can talk to you about anything and we have so much fun with
our random conversations. Thank you for always believing in me, even when we
disagreed. Dad what can I say? You're my dad. We may have had our disagreements,
but you always loved me anyway. Even when I did stupid things.
Leah, Papa, Grandma, Uncle Joey, everyone. I love you guys so much and I cant
thank you enough for standing behind me and making sure I had what I needed
to succeed, but most importantly, loving me regardless of what I got into and
supporting me in every decision I made. I would also like to give thanks to God
because I know that without Him, I wouldn't be where I am today.
Finally, to the senior class. We made it' This is it guys. 2012 isn't the end of the
world, it's just the year we take over. I wish you all the best of luck in everything that
you guys do and never give up. Reach for the stars, chase your dreams, and lead your
heart. Good luck.


Salutatorian: 'Stay strong in the face of adversity


Jenkins honored as second in Class of 2012


By JAMES COULTER
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET

Zack Jenkins, 18, may not have achieved his goal
of valedictorian, but he achieved the next best thing
graduating as salutatorian from Frostproof Middle-
Senior High School Class of 2012 last Tuesday.
Ever since sixth grade when he learned that his
father had been valedictorian, Jenkins was deter-
mined to become valedictorian himself, though he
was satisfied with becoming salutatorian.
"I had worked hard for this," Jenkins said. "I gave the
best that I had and what happened happened."
His parents, Anthony and Theresa, encouraged him
to do his best in school regardless of what his best was.
"My parents always said that anything you do, do
your best and we will never be disappointed," Jenkins
said. "They said that if you get anything, get an educa-
tion, and it will remain with you for the rest of your
life."
Jenkins managed to receive a good education, brag-
ging that he never received anything lower than a B.
He loves math but hates English. His favorite teacher
was Sandra Kincaid, his 11th grade calculus teacher.
"I liked the way she taught class. She made learning
fun for me, and I learned a lot because of it," he noted.
Jenkins was also a star athlete, having played
baseball, basketball, weightlifting, track, and football,
his favorite sport which he had played since sixth
grade. As the quarterback for the Frostproof Bulldogs,
he scored the touchdown which won the last game
of the season against the Fort Meade Miners last year
during his junior season,
"They were undefeated at the time, so nobody ex-
pected us to win," he said about the highlight win over
the rival Miners. "Fort Meade was ahead by 9-0, but
we managed to beat them in overtime by one point

People still
brag about us
beating Fort
Meade last
year."
Jenkins was
involved in
other extra-
curricular
activities
including
the Future
Farmers of
America and
the National
Honors
Society. He
was Student
Council Vice
President his
freshman
year and the
leader of the


Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
He enjoyed an active social life in high school, and
claims that life has become slightly boring now that
he has graduated. Jenkins will attend Wittenberg
University in Springfield, Ohio, where he will major
in biology. He plans on seeking a career as a physical
therapist
The value he wishes to share with his fellow
students is strength, which he shared during his
salutatorian speech.
"I challenged them to stay strong in the face of
adversity," he said. "It's how I got by in high school and
my career, through hard work, and if you go by it, you
would have it in you to succeed."


(Editor's Note: Following is the complete speech given by Jenkins during last week's graduation ceremony.)
Well, we finally made it All of our hard work and perseverance has paid off. But it wasn't just us; I think
that all of our parents, teachers, and administrators deserve a big THANKYOU for all of their hard work in
helping each of us succeed.
How do you measure strength?
In 2011 Stephen Paea broke the NFL Combine record by bench-pressing 225 pounds 49 times...
does this make him strong? Back in 1982, Lee Moran squatted 1,003 pounds. On his first attempt he was
knocked unconscious and it wasn't until his third attempt that he succeeded... is that strength?
This year one of our classmates lost both of her parents in a car accident less than a month before
graduation and she is sitting here with us tonight, is that not strength?
I believe there is another kind of strength other than physical strength; its a strength that comes
through adversity. Physical strength is great but that's not what gets us through life, that kind of strength
is inside of us. This inner strength is the might and the confidence we have inside of ourselves that helps
us make those tough but very important choices in the face of adversity that have a direct correlation to
where we will be in the future.
We are all a product of the choices we have made in the past. Let me saythat again, we are all where
we are today because of the choices we have made. You can bet adversity will come, in fact, the Bible says
in John 16:33"... in this world you will have trouble. But take heart I have overcome the world."This is a
promise from God that He will help us through our troubles and He will give us the inner strength to make
those tough choices.
As I look back on my high school career and the choices I have made, I've learned a lot of things. But I
think the things that are more important than Math, Reading and Science are things like how to work hard
for something you want, or making friends with someone who is a little different from you, and how to
have fun while still being yourself.
Those are the things that will carry on in my life after I'm out of college and in the real world. Those
are the kind of things that will last and bring meaning to my life because I chose to grow through my
hard times and not just go through them. Rem embering those funnymemories like our court session that
turned into a brawl in seventh grade in Mrs. Hood's dass orwhen Hannah Sikes walked in on Dylan Willis in
the bathroom, those memories help me get through those days when nothing seems to be going my way.
And looking back on those victorious moments like beating Fort Meade in overtime last year or making
it to the playoffs in football for the first time in three years, those help me get through the times when I
seem to fail at everything I do. I think that's what high school is all about, hanging out and making memo-
ries with your dosest friends. Laughing together, crying together, and getting through hard times together.
Proverbs 24:10 says, "if you falter in times of trouble, how small is your strength!"
You don't measure the inner strength of a person when everything is going rightfor them; you
measure their strength when everything is going wrong for them. That's the time when they show who
they really are, that's when they show how strong they are. Will they grow through those hard times or will
they merely go through them. Which choice will they make? See that's the thing, we always have a choice,
whether or not we make the right choice is up to us.
So the dcass of 20121 ask," Which choice will you make? How strong will you be? How will you react in
the face of adversity?" Because ultimately that's how the word will identify us, by the choices we make.
Thank you and congratulations again to the Class of 2012.

thoughts.
"It seems like just yesterday we

Babbington said she was, at first,

going to say good bye to all of you,"
she said. "It's quite surreal that this is

Freeman: There will be cuts

County manager believes deficit will .
cause reduction in services or projects


By BILL ROGERS
BROGERS@LAKEWALESNEWS.COM

Polk County Manager Jim Freeman is
crunching the numbers for the 2012-13
budget and is looking for ways to cover
a deficit he thinks will be $1.3 million.
Freeman said after last Friday's
budgetworkshop with the county
commission in Bartow that he has not
identified exactly where the cuts will
come from but they will be in either
services or projects.
"It's doable," Freeman said about
making up the deficit.
Freeman may have already found a
way to wipe out a good portion of that
deficit. He told the board that Polk
County is currently negotiating with
Plant City to take that city's trash to the
landfill at a cost of between $500,000
and $600,000.
Freeman noted there will be no
increase in staff or equipment if an
agreement can be worked out with
Plant City.,
Freeman is scheduled to submit his
proposed budget July 9.
Two public hearings on the budget
will be held in September. The first is
set for Sept. 6 and the final hearing is
scheduled Sept. 13.
Sheriff Grady Judd will present his
budget July 6.
Freeman made a presentation filled
with numbers that were not encourag-
ing. Ad valorem revenue has been
declining since 2006-07. In 2007-08 the
revenue was $192,165,973. It dropped
to $131,568,600 this year and is pro-
jected to go down to $125,137,379 in
2012-13.
The goal is to work toward sustaining
the general fund and sustain essential
services. In trying to do that Freeman
said the county has eliminated 205
general fund positions including
department director level, merged Fire
and EMS, reduced CRA increments,
reduced general fund subsidy to parks
and moved Medicaid to Indigent
Healthcare Fund.
"It has been a challenge year to year
to balance it," Freeman said.


Jim Freeman said there will have to be cuts
next year as the county will be facing a larger
deficit than it anticipated.
PHOTO BY STEVE STEINER
The preliminary information on
taxable value the value on which
property taxes are calculated shows
that it has dropped by almost 5 percent
this year in the county.
The taxable value is down in all of
the county's municipalities as well. The
percentage is 6.45 in Bartow, 8.18 in
Fort Meade, 5.48 in Frostproof and 6 in
Lake Wales.
The commissioners paused during
the workshop to learn about the Polk
Works preliminary budget for next
year.
Its preliminary budget for 2012-13
is $11,731,968. The 2011-12 budget is
$11,576,025.
This is the first year that the county
commission has gone over the bud-
get. The Regional Workforce Boards
Accountability Act that was adopted
earlier this year requires regional
boards to submit their annual budgets,
as approved by the chief local elected
official, to Workforce Florida for review.
The commission apparently has the
authority to make changes and cut the
budget if it wants to. What effect that
will have is not known.
"I can't tell you; it has never hap-
pened before," said Stacy Campbell-
Domineck, CEO and president of Polk
Works.
"We're trying to figure this out,"
Commissioner Sam Johnson said.
After going over some of the acro-
nyms that include TANF (Temporary
Assistance for Needy Families) and
WIA (Workforce Investment Act),
Campbell-Domineck was asked to
provide more information about
the organization including a list of
directors.
Commissioner Melony Bell said she
would like to meet with the executive
board of Polk Works.
The Polk Works budget is scheduled
to be on the county commission
agenda for the June 26 meeting.

Walk-in-Water boaters rescued


By KATHY LEIGH BERKOWITZ
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
A father and son out fishing on
Walk-in-Water Lake last week were
forced to send up a distress flare af-
ter their engine quit and their boat
sank, according to reports from the
Lake Wales Fire Department. LWFD
Deputy Chief Perry Daughtry notes
the aluminum boat was close to the
middle of the lake and headed to
Walk-in-Water Creek when firefight-
ers found them. The LWFD has a
rescue boat, which was deployed
last Wednesday morning.
Under overcast skies, father and
son were pulled to safety, fire of-
ficials reported.
"That lake is always rough," notes


Daughtry, who said that waves kick
up with "the slightest bit of wind."
A Polk County Sheriff's Office
helicopter was also used in the
search. It is not known whether
the father and son had forgotten
to put the plug in the boat before
embarking on their day of fishing.
The son was a young man in his 20s,
notes the fire department. Both men
suffered no injuries as a result of the
accident.
Daughtry notes it's not the first
time firefighters have responded'to
a call at Walk-in-Water Lake. "We've
done it several times, in that lake, as
a matter of fact;" noting they have
been called upon mostly for boats
whose engines have quit, or to assist
in dragging the lake for a body.

to remove someone, shouldn't it be

improperly? Shouldn't this be initiated
through the 67 locally elected supervi-

a non-election year and in a non-redis-

is that some eligible voters might be
purged incorrectly and prevented from
voting.

accurate to say, "in order to remove a
handful of ineligible voters, a thousand
or so legitimate voters were inconve-

appropriate response should be for the
state to voluntarily cease the purge and
direct the 67 elections supervisors to
implement an ongoing process to clean
up the voter rolls, with state agencies
sharing their databases. That way, local
supervisors could check the voter's
status without issuing alarming letters

Crash witness: 'Oh my god mom, that plane is going down'


By KATHY LEIGH BERKOWITZ
and ROBERT BLANCHARD
NEws @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
Babson Park resident CorinnaVaughan
was on the phone with her mother last
Thursday when she heard what she
described as a "loud, really weird noise."
"I said what in the world is that it's not
thunder," she said.
Her mother, a resident on Libby Road,
also heard the noise.
"And then we happened to look up in the
air and we just see this airplane, and it's got
smoke coming out of it, and the left wing,
half of it missing... and I said oh my God,
mom, this plane is going down, oh my
God," Corinna said.
"I said, 'Oh my God, they're going to get
killed. It's way up in the air and it's going
down fast It's smoking and the left wing is
on fire," she added.
Corinna's mom heard the plane's impact
"I just knew that was pretty high in
the air, that was pretty high in the air, you
know, for somebody to survive," Corinna
said.
In the blink of an eye, a beloved Kansas
family was wiped out in what is being
called Polk County's worst air disaster. A fa-
ther, mother and four children were killed
when their plane went down just northeast
of Frostproof, in a scene that played out
before the eyes of many on the Ridge.
Another neighbor called, and Corinna
said they told 911, "We don't knowwhat
direction it's going, we just know it's
crashing."
Christopher Lee Hunt, recently moved
to Lakeland from Babson Park, said he was


in the Tiger Creek Preserves helping his
brother-in-law move and was in the front
yard.
"That's when we heard the noise and
kind of didn't know what it was. I looked
in the sky and that's when I noticed the
plane," he said.
"When I first noticed it, the plane was
upside down," he said.
"He was out of control ... I noticed the
left motor was smoking and then I noticed
also that it didn't have a right wing. I knew
that something wasn't right then."
He describes a sound that resembled a
transformer from a telephone pole, "Off
and on, an awkward noise."
"Then the engine shut off."
"He looked like he was struggling, and he
was trying to gain control of his plane. But
obviously with no wing and a fire, it's going
to be hard to do that," Christophersaid.
"I watched it all the way to the ground,"
he said, but added he did not hear the
impact.
Police say that about 12:30 p.m., a 2006
Pilatus PC- 12/47 (single-turboprop, fixed
wing), carrying the pilot, Ronald Bramlage,
45, a businessman in Junction City, Kan.,
'who owned Roadside Ventures LLC, his
wife, Rebecca, 43, and the couple's children
- Brandon, 15; Boston, 13; Beau, 11; and
8-year-old Roxanne crashed in the Tiger
Creek Preserve.
Boston was the last to be found. The
PCSO noted that his body was found by
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission at 2:20 p.m. Friday about
four-tenths of a mile southwest of the main
crash site where the main part of the plane
rested on the ground.

Emergency officials were flown to the scene following a plane crash in the Tiger Creek Preserve
around 12:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon. On board the 2006 Pilatus PC-12/47 (single-turboprop,
fixed wing),was pilot and Junction City businessman Ronald Bramlage, his wife, and four chil-
dren, who were returning to Kansas from a trip to the Bahamas. Reports note the entire family
perished in the crash.


Polk County Sheriff's Office reports note
the aircraft had taken off from Treasure
CayAirport in the Abaco Islands, Bahamas.
The aircraft stopped at the St Lucie County
International Airport located in Fort Pierce,
Fla., to clear customs, reports note, then
took off from Fort Pierce at 12:05 p.m. en
route to Junction City, Kan. Over southeast
Polk County, the plane began to break
apart and crashed. Investigators do not
know what caused the crash at this time.
Reports say parts of the aircraft have
been located as far as two miles from the
crash site.
"It is apparent that parts of the aircraft


separated before the crash," said a press re-
lease from the Polk County Sheriff's Office,
which added "the aircraft was traveling
at approximately 26,000 feet when it first
began experiencing trouble."
Bramlage was a businessman who
owned Roadside Ventures LLC.
"It's just a horrific loss," Junction City
Mayor Pat Landes said.
Landes said the couple supported
many local projects and provided college
scholarships. The family was well known in
town and at Kansas State University, where

the basketball arena is named for Ron
Bramlage's grandfather.
Dozens of flower boquets lined the
black wrought-iron fence surrounding the
family's ranch-style home by Thursday
evening. A trampoline sat in the front
lawn, and a hammock hung between two
large trees in the wooded yard.
"Standing in his front yard across the
street, Rick Bazan said he'd been friends
with Ron Bramlage since childhood. He
said his friend would often help local
families financially, such as paying for kids
to go to wrestling camps if their parents
couldn't afford to send them.
Bazan said Rebecca, who was president
of the local school board, "never stopped
working. She was tireless." She would be
embarrassed by the outpouring of support
now at her home, where at least a half-
dozen friends of the couple's children were
always running around, Bazan said.
"It's going to be a long time getting over
this one," he said as he watched the fam-
ily's neighbors and friends gather outside.
Meanwhile, Bella Omann, 14, who went
to middle school with the two younger
boys, said Beau "was really the funniest
kid I've ever met."
She had an advanced geometry class
with Boston, whom she said "loved read-
ing books. We would always talk about our
favorite books," including the Harry Potter
novels. He read so much, she said, that
their teacher wouldn't allow extra mate-
rial on students' desks to keep him from
reading.
Another neighbor, JoannWilliams,
recalled driving by the home and seeing
the children bouncing on the trampoline.
"They were just a beautiful family. They
were just so together, cohesive," she said.
The couple were graduates of Kansas
State University and members of the
K-State Alumni Association, President's
Club, Foundation Trustees and Ahearn
Fund.
"The Bramlage family holds a special
place in the history of Kansas State
University and K-State Athletics, and Ron
and Becky have been loyal supporters
and great fans of K-State. Our thoughts
and prayers are with the Bramlage family
during this difficult time," University
President Kirk Schulz and Athletics
Director John Currie said in a joint
statement.


Ron was the grandson of the late Fred
Bramlage, a 1935 graduate of K-State
and Junction City businessman. Fred
Bramlage was the lead contributor to the
construction of Bramlage Coliseum, a
multipurpose arena that opened in 1988
and is home to the K-State men's and
women's basketball teams.
A library in the city is named for
Ron Bramlage's grandmother, Dorothy
Bramlage.
Ron Walker, superintendent of the
local school district, said the family was
down-to-earth despite their wealth and fa-
mous name. He said Rebecca, along with
heading the school board, was a board
member of the local school foundation.
"I've been here about 10 years now. She
and Ron, they were among the first people
to greet me. I didn't even know they had
any wealth at all for about five years. It
was just, 'How can we help you, how can
we serve?'"
James A. Sands, vice mayor of Junction
City, said the Bramlage family has been a
huge influence.
"I know Ron is very much into the city.
He knows real estate and he tries to better
the city anyway he can," he said. "My
goodness. Just great wonderful people.
He said the Bramlages at one point
owned the loan on the building for a local
homeless shelter and "one day, Dorothy
Bramlage just said, 'Nah. It's paid off. You
don't owe any more.'"
The 4,900-acre Tiger Creek Preserve
about 50 miles southwest of Orlando
contains hardwood swamps, hammocks,
scrubby flatwoods, pine flatwoods, sand-
hill and longleaf pine/wiregrass habitat,
according to its website.
"This is a tragic and painful investiga-
tion. Our heart-felt sympathies go out to
the family and friends of the Bramlage
family," noted Polk County Sheriff Grady
Judd, who added that a search and recov-
ery party was established to continue the
search for Boston.
"We are treating this effort like we are
searching for a member of our own fam-
ily," he said.
Additionally, the PCSO asks the public
to call 863-298-6200 if plane debris is
located, and not to touch the debris.
The crash site was only reachable by
helicopters and all-terrain vehicles. The
National Transportation Safety Board will
lead the investigation, which the Federal
Aviation Administration said would take a
long time.

report.)

I highly recommend, cleaning up inside

small items that can make a big difference
such as replacing burnt out light bulbs,
replacing broken window glass, have your
carpets clean. Box up any and all extra stuff
and either donate or place in a neat manner
in your shed or garage.

wash your windows, and place a couple bags
of mulch and some fresh plantings by your

COUNTY REPORT


PHOTO BY JEFF ROSLOW
Citrus farmer Scott Young, who lives in Alturas, checks on the steam engine Mosaic employees found buried in a cooling pond in an old
abandoned phosphate plant near Mulberry about a month ago. A team of historians examined the find Monday and will determine its
origins. They did discover the steam locomotive was built in 1874 in Massachusetts and it was stripped of working parts before it was left_
on the grounds. While getting the train from the cooling pond, employees found the rusted wheels still work as it was rolled to this spot.
The land is owned by the Florida Department of Transportation and managed by Mosaic.

Land


dispute



may halt



building

Birth of new
Lakeland university
may be on hold

By BILL KACZOR
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TALLAHASSEE A dispute over the
transfer of donated land could halt
the ongoing construction of a campus
for Florida's newest state university in
Lakeland.
The chairman of a Board of
Governors committee overseeing the
birth of Florida Polytechnic University
said Friday he will ask the board to stop
the project if the matter is not resolved
before its next regular meeting June
19-21 in Orlando.
Construction of the first building,
expected to cost $100 million, already
has begun.
The Williams Acquisition Holding Co.
donated land to the University of South
Florida for its polytechnic branch in
2006. The Legislature passed a law this
year stripping the Lakeland campus
from'South Florida and immediately
creating the state's 12th public univer-
sity to take its place.
The question that could complicate
construction arises from a clause in the
agreement to give Florida Polytechnic
title to the land.
Williams included a reverter clause
saying the property would return t6 the
company if the state ever used it for a
non-university purpose.
"We should not build this building
with that kind of reverter," said board
member Morteza "Mori" Hosseini, who
chairs the panel's Select Committee on
Florida Polytechnic University.
"It's mind-boggling," Hosseini said
during a conference call meeting of
the full board. "I'm in real estate. That's
what I do for a living. To me it's unac-
ceptable. Nobody would do that."
Hosseini said he wants to see what
Gov. Rick Scott thinks about the mat-
ter and asked State University System
Chancellor Frank Brogan and the
board's attorney to look into it.
Board chairman Dean Colson told
Hosseini his instincts were right.
"We can't put it a $100 million
building on property that has a reverter
clause in it," Colson said.
Stephen Mitchell, a Tampa real estate
lawyer who serves on South Florida's
Board of Trustees, said Williams has
agreed to the donation transfer but
has insisted on the reverter clause.
The original donation to South Florida
had a similar clause. It subsequently
was removed, but Williams now wants
it restored, Mitchell said. The holding
company is a subsidiary of The Williams
Companies Inc., a Tulsa, Okla., energy
firm.
Mitchell did not dispute Hosseini's
criticism, but said Williams agreed
to the transfer only after extensive
negotiations.

Yon has worked hard to earn his
reputation as "the premier independent

Lees is a Diplomat in the American
College of Veterinary Internal Medicine
and a professor in the Department of

at Texas A&M University.
The Lakeland High School graduate is
a researcher in small-animal medicine,
specializing in veterinary nephrology

groundbreaking work on hereditary
nephritis, an inherited kidney disorder

occurs in humans it's known as Alport

dogs. For this significant contribution
to his field, the European Society of
Veterinary Internal Medicine invited
him to deliver the keynote address in
2003. One year later, he presented his
research as a State-of-the-Art Address
at the Scientific Forum of the American
College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.
In 2007, Lees and his colleagues
published "Genetic Cause of Autosomal
Recessive Hereditary Nephropathy in
the English Cocker Spaniel" in which
the cause of the disease was identified
and explanation was given for how test-
ing for the mutation would allow eradi-
cation of the malady from the breed.
He is also the recipient of The Robert W.
Kirk Award for Professional Excellence
from the American College of
Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM)
and the American Veterinary Medical
Foundation (AVMF)/American Kennel

in Canine Research. Lees received his
doctorate of veterinary medicine from
Colorado State University, a master
of science degree from University of
Minnesota and a bachelor of science
degree from Colorado State University.


Polk, Seminole charter
fights going to court

Battles over the Florida Board
of Education's approval of two
new charter schools in Polk and
Seminole counties are headed
to appeals courts, attorneys said
Friday.
The state board last month over-
turned county decisions to reject
proposals by Renaissance Charter
School Inc. to open schools for
children in kindergarten through
eighth grade.
The Polk and Seminole school
boards filed lawsuits in December
in Leon County to try to block the
state board from taking up the
proposals. But a circuit judge re-
fused to grant a temporary injunc-
tion, clearing the way for the state
board's votes.
The counties dropped the
circuit-court cases this week.
Frederick J. Murphy, an attorney
for the Polk County School Board,
said the state board's Polk County
decision will be challenged in the
2nd District Court of Appeal.
Also, Seminole County is expect-
ed to challenge the state board in
the 5th District Court of Appeal.
, The disputes center, at least in
part, on a 2011 law that changed
the way "high performing" charter
schools are reviewed.
Renaissance says its proposals in
Polk and Seminole counties would
replicate a high-performing school
in another part of the state.


Volunteer reception center
helpers needed

Trained volunteers are needed
when Polk County faces a natural
disaster.
With hurricane season here,
Volunteer Polk is looking for people
who may want to lend a hand.
On Thursday, June 7, during Polk
County Emergency Management's
"Team Play" Hurricane Functional
Exercise, people can learn how to .
become a member of Polk County's
Volunteer Reception Center team.
The VRC is only activated once
county officials have declared it safe
for people to start venturing out after
a natural disaster.
VRC helpers respond only if they
are available. VRC helpers act as
greeters, register and check in other
volunteers, prepare and distribute
volunteer ID badges, answer tele-
phones and give out assignments
to volunteers helping with disaster
recovery.
Prior experience is not necessary.
Volunteer Polk will train you.
The temporary Volunteer Reception
Center open house is at Polk County
Tourism and Sports Marketing at the
Lake Myrtle Sports Complex, 2701
Lake Myrtle Park Road in Auburndale
from 8:30 a.m.-noon.
VRC workers will receive a
Volunteer Polk shirt, a Disaster
Preparedness Pail and their VRC
Helper ID badge. Refreshments will
be provided.
For information, call the Volunteer
Polk office at 863-534-5580.

FEELING .




Students to get intro to robotic surgery


For many students, summer vacation
can be a time of sloth-like laziness, the
days measured in naps and TV shows.
Or, for participants in a new Polk State
College program, it can be a time to
earn college credit, learn cutting-edge
technology and play with a robot.
Through a partnership with Winter
Haven Hospital, Polk State will offer the
Scholarobotic Academy from June 25
to Aug. 8 to those entering their senior
year of high school.
Participants will complete a three-
credit-hour course in medical termi-
nology, learn from a leading robotic
surgeon, and practice using a robotic
operating system in a real-life operat-
ing room.
"This is really an unheard-of, once-
in-a-lifetime opportunity," said Polk
State Professor Suzanne Halverson.
Halverson will teach the medical-ter-
minology portion of the program. Using
a mix of classroom instruction and
online work, she will teach participants
the basics of medical terminology -the
language that medical professionals use
in identifying organs, diagnosing condi-
tions and ordering treatments.


"Medical terminology is the universal
language for healthcare professionals.
Understanding the applications for
medical terminology, such as word
construction, operative procedures and
medical documentation is imperative
for effective communication amongst
the medical team," Halverson said.
"Medical terminology is an excellent
introductory course for high-school
students interested in a career in
medicine."
Halverson's students will also per-
form multiple dissections and build a
three-dimensional clay model of the
human body. The class will take place
at Polk State Chain of Lakes Collegiate
High School on the Winter Haven
campus.
Participants will put what they learn
from Halverson to real-life use as they
study under Dr. Sijo Parekattil, direc-
tor of robotic surgery and urology at
Winter Haven Hospital. Parekattil is a
board-certified urologist and robotic
surgery specialist who has performed
more than 400 robotic microsurgery
procedures.
With the guidance of Parekattil and


Dr. Ahmet Gudeloglu, a research fellow
of robotic surgery, students will use the
hospital's $2-million daVinci Surgical
system to build LEGO-brick structures
and practice suturing techniques.
Parekattil said the Scholarobotic
Academy offers the chance for partici-
pants to get an early introduction to a
technology that is being used more and
more frequently in the medical field.
"Robotic surgery is becoming more
common and more applications for
this technology are being developed
every day. It represents the future trend
of surgery," he said.
The daVinci system is the only one
of its kind, having been introduced in
1999. According to its maker, Intuitive.
Surgical Inc., 2,132 da Vinci systems
have since been installed in 1,718
hospitals worldwide.
Students interested in participating
in the Scholarobotic Academy must
be registered in a dual-enrollment
program at the college. An application
is available at www.scholarobotics.org.
There is a $25 registration fee.
The Scholarobotic Academy comple-
ments a broader initiative at the college


to train operating-room nurses and
surgical technicians who assist in
robot-assisted surgeries. The college's
robot-assisted surgery credential, also
offered in partnership with Winter
Haven Hospital, combines online work
and intensive, hands-on training also
using Winter Haven Hospital's da Vinci
system. The first class of the credential
program is scheduled to begin in
August.
"Robot-assisted surgery is an incred-
ible technology, and the students
who participate in the Scholarobotic
Academy will have an incredible
experience as they learn about it
from a firsthand perspective. The
Scholarobotic program will give these
students invaluable knowledge that will
help them as they select and pursue
their future careers. We at Polk State
are very excited and proud to offer our
local high school seniors this opportu-
nity," said Polk State President Eileen
Holden.

Cornerstone Hospice gets $1


.2M donation


Cornerstone Hospice Foundation just
got $1.2 million from Alfred and Vera
Reetz of Leesburg, both medical profes-
sionals and once a hospice nurse.
Both in their 90s, this philanthropic
couple witnessed early on how valuable
the need for hospice care positively
impacts life-altering experiences of
patients and families one family at a
time.
"To date, it's the largest cash gift
received on record here at Cornerstone
Hospice," said Nick Buchholz, executive
director of the Cornerstone Hospice
Foundation.
The Reetzes had been married for 65
years, originally from Long Island, N.Y.
"Earlier in his career, Mr. Reetz
worked as a hospice nurse at
Cornerstone Hospice (previously known
as Hospice of Lake and Sumter coun-
ties) from March of 1988 through March
of 1996, training which provided him a
greater understanding of palliative care
and its impact on families dealing with
life-changing experiences," Deborah
Harley, executive director for the
nonprofit's Polk, Hardee and Highlands
region. "He was a graduate of Hillsdale
College in Michigan and a member of
its "Independence Fund."
In his retirement years; he tinkered
with radios and transmitters, but his
real passion was investing and the stock
market. At 92 he was actively buying
and selling stocks online; was Internet
and investment savvy, she said.


"Gifts of this magnitude don't come
along everyday, so you can imagine our
sense of gratitude to the Reetzes. Their
legacy permeates through the care and
compassion delivered to our patients
and families," said Mary Manrique,
president and CEO of the central
Florida nonprofit who works at the
Havendale Boulevard operations center
in Winter Haven.
The Reetzes didn't have children, but
they held dear to their heart their two
Weimaraner dogs that pre-deceased
them. As soul mates, the couple would
spend hours working together on
brain-teasing tasks such as puzzles
and crosswords. The younger of the
two by one year, Vera, was a nurse. She
also was an avid indoor gardener, with
a penchant for sunflowers. In her idle
time she would also enjoy sewing. In
her final days Mrs. Reetz was a patient
at Cornerstone Hospice before she was
called home.
"The Reetz have been longtime
supporters of Cornerstone Hospice.
... During one of our most recent
conversations, Alfred mentioned they
had a sizable estate, but with prevail-
ing economic conditions we didn't
expect estate to maintain its value,
so were certainly surprised when the
full accounting had been completed,"
Buchholz said.
The Reetzes lived frugally, were
cognizant of the environment around
them and did their part in recycling

One of the exciting aspects of eating
healthy is trying new dishes. Numerous,
easy-to-find, and nutrition-packed ingre-
dients, are worth exploring and adding to
your culinary repertoire.
Let's get up close and personal with
some delicious food that is, perhaps,
less familiar to you. RUTABAGA: A large
yellow-orange fleshed root vegetable,
a relative of the cabbage. It is cooked
similarly to a potato, and is just as versatile.
Popular in Europe and rich with vitamin
A, potassium, niacin, calcium and fiber,
rutabaga can be found in all grocery store
produce departments. Peeled, cubed and
steamed rutabaga is so tasty, it can also
be consumed plain, with.just a little olive
oil drizzled on it at the table. When fully
cooked, the rutabaga flsh is firmer than
that of a cooked potato.
QUINOA (Pronounced keen-wah), is
a remarkable grain that can be found in
health food stores and some supermar-
kets. Of all the grains, this delicately tasting
food contains all 8 amino acids, thereby
providing a complete protein. Quinoa is
gluten-free, and delivers foliate, phospho-
rus, potassium, calcium and many other
important nutrients. The tiny yellow-white
balls, resembling couscous, require only 20
minutes of cooking time. Any grain recipe
is suitable for quinoa as well.
YUCA ROOT (Pronounced Yuhk-uh)
not to be confused with the ornamental
plant. It is consumed extensively in Latin
America and is also a staple in Africa. A


ew friends in your kitchen

I ] Rutabaga Salad Steamed Yuca


long, narrow tuber cooked like a potato,
yuca root should never be eaten raw as it
can be toxic. When removing the rough,
brown skin, a waxy coating is exposed.
The coating is edible when cooked along
with the flesh. An inedible "string" which
runs through the length of the tuber's
center should be discarded. Cutting into
bite-sized pieces and steaming, the root
will yield an incredibly delicious, creamy,
texture. Yuca contains vitamin C, A,
Potassium, magnesium, fiber and more.
TARRAGON: Most people have heard
of it but have never used it. This aromatic
herb, with a flavor similar to anise, is used
often in Mediterranean cooking. It has a
magnificent taste, which can turn almost
any dish into a gourmet experience.
Tarragon can be incorporated in vegetable,
fish, legume, chicken, soup and stew
recipes. When measuring the dried form
of the herb (or any herb, for that matter),
do not expose it to the cooking steam.
Measure the amount you need away from
the stove.


(In some grocery stores the vegetable
can be cut for you)
(Serves 2)
1 medium rutabaga
Dressing:
1-1/2 teaspoon orange zest
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper
/ teaspoon ground cloves
Cutting rutabaga: With a large, sharp
knife cut rutabaga in half on a board. Cut
each half in half again. Holding one quar-
ter of the vegetable flat side down, shave/
peel the skin off. Continue with other seg-
ments. Rinse the root parts in a colander.
Chop each quarter into bite-sized pieces.
Steam rutabaga for 20 until soft. (Cooked
rutabaga will feel firmer than a cooked
potato). Cool. In a bowl mix dressing. Add
rutabaga. Serve hot or cold.

cut, and twist. Keep cutting/twisting into
bite-sized pieces, discarding the "string" in
center. Steam for 20 minutes until tender. In
a bowl, mix with all other ingredients. Yuca
can also be served topped with any sauce.

Chicken Salad

Shock therapy an effective treatment for resistant depression


DEAR DR. DONOHUE: In the past two
years a friend has tried several different
medicines for depression and anxiety. So
far nothing has worked for him. I recently
heard that electroconvulsive therapy,
ECT, is an effective treatment. Will you
please shed some light on this? R.O.
ANSWER: ECT electroconvulsive
therapy, which is also called electro-
shock therapy is an excellent treat-
ment for depression, especially depres-
sion that doesn't respond to medicines
and talk therapy. The names for this
treatment electroconvulsive, elec-
troshock- generate fright. Someone
ought to come up with a better name.
Equally frightening are the depictions of
ECT in movies.
No longer is the treatment a scene
of dread to onlookers. The patient is
anesthetized and feels no pain. Muscle
relaxants stop the thrashing that
signaled the onset of the convulsion. No
muscle movement is now seen. The only
evidence of it is recorded on brain-wave
tracings. If you viewed a treatment, you
would ask when it was going to take
place. You wouldn't believe that any-
thing had happened.
Memory loss also is a stumbling point
for potential patients. The-memory of
facts stored in the brain is not affected


by this treatment. Personal memories of
past events might be hazy for a time, but
most of them return.
A depressed person not responding
to medicines and talk therapy runs the
risk of suicide, a much greater risk than
anything induced by ECT.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband
was told he had hepatitis C. He took
one year of treatment for it. Then he
got diagnosed with cancer. He made a
recovery from surgery in a year. Now his
hepatitis C is back, and he is scheduled
for another year of treatment.
I got checked for hepatitis C, and the
test was negative. I got rechecked when
he was told that his hepatitis had come
back. Again, it was negative. But the
doctor said I had one point on my liver


that could be liver or bone. What does
she mean? -W.W.
ANSWER: I must admit I don't have
a clue what the doctor means. Give her
a call and tell her that you (and I) don't
understand what she's talking about.
I'm sorry your husband has had a
relapse of hepatitis C. However, it has
happened at a good time. Two new
hepatitis C drugs, boceprevir (Victrelis)
and telapravir (Incivek), are quite effec-
tive in getting rid of this disease. Either
of these drugs is given with the same
drugs your husband received previously.
These new drugs are major advances
in the treatment of hepatitis C, even for
those who relapsed after their initial
therapy.
The booklet on hepatitis explains the
three different kinds. Readers can obtain
a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue No.

recipient's printed name and address.,
Please allow four weeks for delivery.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have never
seen an article on gastroparesis. How
does one live with it? I took erythromy-
cin, but it gave me heart palpitations. I
continue to lose weight. How can I gain
some? I drink Ultimate Meal once a day.


My doctor doesn't want me on Reglan
because it caused problems for many of
his patients. Please help. M.H.
ANSWER: "Gastroparesis" indicates
that the stomach empties very slowly.
Normally, one-third to 90 percent of
food leaves the stomach in one hour;
by four hours, all food should have
left it. Gastroparesis nauseates people.
The stomach bloats and becomes
uncomfortable. Small, frequent meals
that are low in fat are better tolerated.
Reglan is the only medicine in the U.S.,
in addition to erythromycin, that is ap-
proved for gastroparesis. Have you tried
milkshakes? They have a good calorie
load and will stop your weight loss. Or
how about another supplement similar
to Ultimate Meal? I don't mean to stop '
Ultimate Meal. I mean add another
meal supplement to it during the day.
Ensure is an example.

Dr Donohue regrets that he is unable
to answer individual letters, but he will
incorporate them in his column when-
ever possible. Readers may write him or

newsletters at PRO. Box 536475, Orlando,

Touch and know: Helping autistic children respond positively


Intuitively, humans believe that when
someone touches them their brains
instantly conduct a two-step analysis.
First, we objectively assess its physical
Properties the gentleness of the
touch, the roughness of the skin, the
duration of contact. That's followed
by a second step in which we apply
knowledge and emotion. Who touched
us and why affects how we perceive
and value the touch.
Well, it turns out intuition is wrong.
In a novel set of experiments, neu-
roscientists at Caltech say the brain
processes every physical contact, no
matter how basic or fleeting, according
to its emotional context.
The researchers placed heterosexual
male subjects in a functional MRI
scanner and measured brain activity as
each was caressed on the leg under two
different conditions. In one condition,
they saw a video of an attractive female
bending down to caress them. In the
other, they saw a video of a man doing
the same thing.
Though the actual caress was done
by the same person (a woman) in all
experiments, the men described touch-
ing by the video female as pleasurable
while the video male's touch was
deemed aversive.
"It was generally thought that there

are separate brain pathways for how we
process the physical aspects of touch on
the skin and for how we interpret that
touch emotionally that is, whether we
feel it as pleasant, unpleasant, desired
or repulsive," said study author Michael
Spezio. "Our study shows that, to the
contrary, emotion is involved at the
primary stages of social touch."
The findings may have practical
applications in helping reshape social re-
sponses to touch in patients with autism.
"Now that we have clear evidence
that primary somatosensory cortex
encodes emotional significance of
touch, it may be possible to work with'
early sensory pathways to help children
with autism respond more positively
to the gentle touch of their parents and
siblings," Spezio said.
