Utility customers



face rate hike

Two plans being considered as council mulls options


By BRIAN ACKLEY
NEWS @ FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
Most utility customers in Frostproof
will likely see higher water and sewer
rates this fall, but potentially not all.
The city council has narrowed to two
options for making sure its enterprise
fund, which is basically all the water and
sewer operations, has enough money in
it to meet its obligations.
One would raise the current rate by a
little over 2 percent, which would be the
equivalent of the Consumer Price Index.
A second plan would restructure
fees based on total usage. Currently, all
customers are billed for at least 3,000
gallons for both water and sewer each
month, regardless of whether or not
they actually use all of that amount.
A new proposal still being considered
would lower that threshold to 2,000 gal-
lons, meaning those who use only that


much in a month might see a lower bill.
However, the next tier of 2,000 to 5,000
gallons used, would see a rate hike.
All the plans were considered at a spe-
cial council workshop late last month.
No decisions were made, but consensus
was to move forward during upcoming
budget discussions with the two options
before making a final decision. The city's
new fiscal year starts Oct. 1.
This spring, the city's auditor "strong-
ly" recommended at least a CPI increase
in utility rates since the enterprise fund
was at the point of breaking even.-
There are also concerns over expenses
since several costly jobs have arisen in
recent months that weren't budgeted
for.
The city is also continuing to pay off
long-term debt on the sewer system up-
grade that was mandated by the federal
government more than a decade ago.

Mission possible for First Presbyterian youth group


By BRIAN ACKLEY
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
If they're asked to write a back-to-
school essay next month about what
they did on their summer vacation, a
group of students from Frostproof's
First Presbyterian Church will have
quite a tale to tell.
Instead of a trip to the beach or some
other Florida tourist destination, five.
church representatives are instead
spending their time and money in
Guatemala, doing mission work to
spread the good word.
The quintet, led by church youth
director Samuel Mills, who has done
mission trips throughout the United
States, will return from their eight-day
odyssey on Saturday, after heading out
last Friday. A big part of what they will
be doing is helping to build a house for
a local family there. Also on the trip:
Courtney Lewis, Jake Lambert, Luis
Rivera and Andrew Elder.
Mills said he's wanted to do a mission
trip for a year, but that plans for this trip
to the Catalyst Resources International
facility came together only in the last

. 7llil ,


several of months.
"I really feel like God is going to use
these four in awesome ways," Mills said. -
While the work there will be impor- :.
tant, he added that the success of the .
trip will come from what all of them 7
bring back from the impoverished
Central American country.
"It's really how they're impacted, and
seeing what they don't have there, and
what they do have here," Mills said.
Pastor Buzzy Elder said doing mission
work is part of what the church needs
to do.
"One of the things I've felt like as a
pastor, and ever since I've been one, I've
just felt like when Jesus tells us to go
into the world, sometimes that's around
the corner, that's all you can do," Pastor
Buzzy Elder noted. "But I also believe
he's commissioned us to' go as far out
into the world as we possibly can." ,
Elder said it is a goal to have the
church do more regular mission work,
usually closer to home, but perhaps
every four or five years on a more global PHOTO BY BRIAN ACKLEY
scale as well.
Frostproof First Presbyterian Church youth director Samuel Mills, center, is in Guatemala this
MISSION I 5 week with a contingent from the church to do mission work.

VIEWPOINT


Your election opinions are important


We believe letters to the editor are an
important function of a community newspa-
per. In their best forms, letters to the editor
provide an outlet for residents who feel a
need to speak to their community about
subjects that interest them.
As a newspaper, we try to include as many
views as possible in our coverage; letters
provide a megaphone for more voices.
We believe that letters to the editor and
local columns are part of the heart and soul
of a newspaper. We encourage you to write
them.
We respectfully ask letter writers to edit
submissions to keep the message on point.
It's difficult to edit the thoughts of someone
who has taken the time to organize and
write them down.
Be concise and to the point to ensure the
intent of a letter to the editor is not lost in
editing.


Our Viewpoint
Candidate endorsement letters, like most
letters to the editor should be about 250
words.
As 2012 will be a big year for elections,
we'd like to reiterate policies that may affect
those planning to use letters to the editor as
part of their campaign strategy:
No letters endorsing or critical of candi-
dates will be published after Aug. 8.
That is to allow rebuttals from candidates.
The primary election is on Tuesday, Aug. 14.
Rebuttal letters will be screened by our edi-
torial review board to determine if a rebuttal
is appropriate.
We intend to not publish letters from
"ghost" writers people who write letters,
then seek out others to submit them.
Please keep your letters coming. Your
involvement helps to make a better


conversation about topics of the day, and
helps us to become a better newspaper.
The governments that work best are the
ones closet to the people.
The newspapers that work best are
the ones that are closet to the readers.
Newspapers can help bring a community
together and they can help citizens learn
about their political candidates.
Your local newspaper is busy interview-
ing candidates for County Commission,
Supervisor of Election, local judges, property
appraiser and all of the local and area candi-
dates you will see on the your ballot.
We will provide profiles of the candidates
in an upcoming special section and we will
share our opinions about the candidates on
future pages of the Viewpoint page.
Your opinions are just as important and we
hope you share them with your neighbors
on this page.


Letters to the editor


God and the pursuit of happiness


In today's political correctness, there
are two words which many consider of-
fensive but which our Founders highly
respected: "Creator" in the Declaration,
and "Lord" in the Constitution. The
Bible was respected. Historian David
Barton documents this respect and pro-
vides further insight into early America
at www.wallbuilders.com.
"Creator" indicates that all people
belong to Him. Why would our Lord
create this universe, especially people?
John 3:16 reveals a God of love. Robots
can't love and relate; people can, if they
choose to do so.
Another question: what is the


significance of being created equal?
Hitler murdered six million Jews
because, to him, they were offensive
and inferior. Atheistic evolution does
not make people equal. Millions have
died in Russia, China, Cambodia, North
Korea, and other countries because of
atheistic dictators.
What happens when America forgets
God? Consider Roe vs. Wade: 55 mil-
lion people have been deprived of life,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Immorality destroys people. To
defend immorality requires denying our

Why do we want a monument to

Spook Hill and it's legend?


We consider this a "Roadside America
Revival Project." Preserving one of the
country's great destinations, helps pass
along for posterity, what makes growing
up in America unique. Thousands have
fond memories of trying out the gravity
hill's quirky nature for themselves. Like
life, they say it's not all about the desti-
nation, but about the journey. Friends
& family enjoying the trip to Spook Hill,
and what they enjoyed while heading
for & leaving it, are all ingredients that
make up the experience.
As the monument's designer, I was
privileged to be part of the artist group
that developed the Cabbage Patch Kids
business in 1978. Back then, many local
people felt that dolls with adoption
papers were an aberrant, crazy idea.
However, our group realized the local


economy was below the poverty level
and few came just to enjoy downtown
Cleveland Ga.
Decades later, our crazy idea gave the
area jobs, delighted thousands, & the
average income increased tenfold. No
one doubts that Cabbage Patch Kids are
a big part of Americana.
Marking Spook Hill as a landmark,
with an innovative/interactive monu-
ment, is an idea who's time has come.
Like the people who thought we were
crazy making dolls & painting murals in
an old hospital, some are thinking the
same about our monument. But these
same people can't honestly argue that
"crazy" ideas can't energize the econo-
my, make people happy, and improve
one section of the world.

'We reserve the right


When I attended Florida State
University just over half a century ago,
shortly after the invention of the wheel,
there was a campus humor magazine
called "Smoke Signals."
The name was in keeping with the
Seminole namesake of the university,
back when "native American" still
meant someone who was born in the
USA, and the term "Indian" bore no
stigma, other than to focus on the
navigation error that led Christopher
Columbus to believe that he had landed
in India.
Oops.
"Smoke Signals" published essays,
cartoons, and other ventures into hu-
mor that were often irreverent, farcical,
boisterous, satirical, and, oh yes, funny.
One cartoon that fell into most of
these categories, and the only one
that I can still remember after all
these years, was of a revival tent with

a hand-lettered sign in front reading,
"We reserve the right to refuse to save
anyone."
That may not resonate with today's
young people, but it was a takeoff on
a pre-civil rights era sign often posted
in places of business that read, "We
reserve the right to refuse to serve
anyone." It was a not-so-tactful warn-
ing that minorities just might not be
welcomed as customers.

Although it hasn't happened in the last
couple years, the city did have to pay
a small fine several years ago.because
their debt ratio was lower than agreed to
in the city's borrowing contract.
If the city keeps the current rate struc-
ture in place, the CPI increase would
add about $30,000 to the city's coffers.
The base minimum fee would rise $1.64
per month. Currently, 494 city custom-
ers fall under the 3,000 gallon minimum.
Adopting a new rate structure, with
a CPI increase, would raise more than
$83,000. Those who use 3,000 gallons
a month would be facing a steep hike,
about $10 a month, on their utility bill,
as would those who use more than
5,000 gallons monthly. There would be
318 customers that would fall under
the 2,000 gallon minimum,.city officials
said, and 470 would fall in the 2,000 to
5,000 gallon level.
"We have to choose between what
makes sense for the city and what makes
sense for the customers, recognizing
that our auditor said we have to address
the CPI increase," Councilwoman Diana
Webster-Biehl said. "We're on the edge."

There is nothing funny about preju-
dice, then or now, and the "refuse to
save anyone" cartoon was a perfect way
of ridiculing this endemic practice of
yesteryear.

That cartoon was brought to mind
when a lifeguard named Thomas Lopez
was fired after his employer said he had
saved the wrong person.
Working at Hallandale Beach (and I
must confess that I do not even know
where that is) Lopez went to the aid of
a drowning man who was outside of his
assigned zone of protection.
His employer said he had left his
own patch of sand unprotected, and
cashiered him.
Several of his fellow lifeguards
resigned in protest.
The decision, which has been widely
ridiculed in the media, was rescinded,
and Lopez was offered his job back.
He declined, and if he plays his cards
right, he can turn his 15 minutes of
fame into a tour circuit on the late


recommended that the council adopt at
least the CPI increase.
"I don't think it gives us enough
additional money," Biehl added about
just a CPI increase. She seemed to favor
lowering the minimum usage limit to
2,000 gallons. "It provides a small but
meaningful reduction to the one and two
person families that use very little water.
They are riot going to have resources
for additional income. And while some
families would get an increase under this
scenario, it's not unmanageable. Ten dol-
lars is not a happy thing, but if our costs
are up there, we have to address it."
Councilman Ralph Waters reminded,
too, that the city is also in the process
of possibly refinancing some of its
long-term utility debt, which could save
tens of thousands of dollars a year in
payments.
Mayor Kay Hutzelman said there was
not likely anyway that rates could be
reduced or held even.
"It all sounds good until you actually
get it down on paper and start looking
at all the different scenarios and how
they match up," she said. "If we do the
CPI, we would be following something
prudent. For years we have not done it,
we've held back. It's the hardest thing
to sit up here and say we have to raise
the rates, but I think we can legitimately
handle the CPI."

According to its website, CRI was
founded by Fontaine and Paula
Greene in 2008, and seeks to partner
with Guatemalan pastors and other
Christian organizations in an effort to
meet the physical and spiritual needs '
of the people.
CRI hosts work teams and families
that come to minister in Guatemala.
The scope of the work done through
CRI is to build houses and churches, es-
tablish feeding programs, conduct VBS,
support medical and dental clinics,
and provide chicken coops for needy
families. CRI then directs the people

night TV shows and perhaps even a line
of swimwear, or at least rescue equip-
ment, marketed under his name.

It is hard to imagine a lifeguard
watching a man drown and refusing to
go to his rescue because the hapless
swimmer was 50 strokes beyond the
pile of seashells that marked his area of
responsibility.
Indeed, it is hard to imagine that
Lopez would not have been roundly
condemned in the court of public
opinion if he had refused to rescue the
swimmer because he got in trouble on
the wrong sandbar.
When it comes to life-saving emer-
gency services, "That's not my job" has
a really hollow ring.
There is nothing new about young
people who think they are smarter than
their bosses.
Sometimes they are.

(S. L. Frisbie is retired. In his career,
he probably had a few employees who
considered themselves to be smarter
than the boss, and some of them prob-
ably were. But they were smart enough
not to say so to his face. Wisdom comes
in many forms.)


Alexander leaves Atlanticblue

board of directors


By BILL ROGERS
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS,NET

State Sen. J.D. Alexander has left the
board of directors of the Atlanticblue
Group, the Lake Wales-based land
development and real estate manage-
ment company.
Alexander resigned as president of
the family-owned company earlier this
year to assume a more active role in
Alico Inc., a land management com-
pany in Fort Myers. Alexander became
CEO and president at Alico in early
April.
According to a press release from
Alico, Alexander has served as the
company's chief executive officer and
president on a less than full-time basis
since February 2010. He previously
served as a director of Alico in 2004
and 2005 and has served on the Alico
board from January 2008 to the pres-
ent. He also serves as the board's vice
chairman and will continue to serve in
that capacity.
The Lake Wales Republican has
served as a Florida State senator from
2002 to the present and previously
served as a Florida State representa-
tive from 1998 to 2002. His term as a


Florida State senator ends Nov. 6 this
year. He can't run for re-election due to
term limits.
"The board believes that JD
Alexander and his team have been
very effective in reducing operating
costs and improving the efficiency of
the company's operations since his
appointment in February 2010," said
Ramon Rodriguez, chairman of Alico's
Audit Committee.
"We recognize there is work to be
done to broaden the shareholder base
and increase capital market awareness.
The Board believes that JD is uniquely
qualified to lead the company in these
efforts," Rodriguez added.
"I am excited about the opportunity
to focus my efforts exclusively on
Alico," Alexander said in the press
release. "We have made tremendous
progress since my appointment in
February 2010, and while our work is
not complete, I am confident we will
continue to build our operating results
and focus significant effort on broad-
ening the capital market awareness
of the company. I thank the Board for
their continued trust and confidence
in me and look forward to working
with them for the future of Alico."

Intern helps History Center grow


BySTEVESTEINER
SSTEINER@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

One of the most recent programs
at the Polk County History Center
(formerly the Polk County Historical
Museum) is its Lunch'n' Learn
Speaker Series. Already the program
has proven to be one of the most
popular of all the Center's offerings,
and attendance grows larger with
each event, held the third Tuesday of
every month.
A good measure of that program's
success can be attributed to its in-
tern, Chelsea Young. A Bartow native
who graduated in 2005 from All Saints
Academy, Young has already earned a
bachelor of arts degree in art his-
tory from the College of Charleston
and currently is working toward her
master's degree in museum studies
through the online program offered.
by the University of Oklahoma.
It has been an interesting journey,
said Young.
"I was in the performing arts and
scenic design for theater at the
College of Charleston," said Young.
"I did visual arts on a smaller scale."
Yet when she graduated, the question
was, what was she going to do with
a degree in art history? She did not
have to wait long to find the answer.
"I taught at the Polk Museum of Art
in Lakeland," she said. "I found that
rewarding, especially working with
children. Sharing passions is what I
like doing."
However, it was only a part-time,
temporary position: But before too
long, her stepmother, Myrtice Young,
who is manager of the museum in
Bartow, turned to her right before
Thanksgiving.
"Myrtice asked me to come out to
help one day per week," said Chelsea.
"But that quickly became five days
per week."


However, Chelsea was not immedi-
ately handed the plum assignments.
She had to prove her mettle and
began with the "grunge" work, writing
letters and filing for grants. To the de-
light of everyone, Chelsea discovered
she had a knack for finding grants
and for filing them.
"I just submitted an application for
a grant equal to $250,000,'to be paid
out over three years," said Chelsea.
"It's in cooperation with the county
library system." It will be learned this
September whether the grant has
been approved.
But Chelsea wanted to do more to
promote the History Center, and was
given the green light.
"Myrtice is really fantastic about
letting me have an idea and running
with it," said Chelsea. She looked
around to see what other museums
were doing and found herself enam-
ored of a lunch 'n' learn lecture series
being held. Thus was started the one
in Bartow, beginning this past March.
As earlier stated, it has been an
unequivocal success.
"I think we found something the
community was wanting," she said.
For those not familiar, attendees
bring their own lunch and then listen
to a lecture ranging anywhere from
45-60 minutes. Topics thus far have
included smuggling and the Florida
economy; Florida in the movies;
concerns about suburban sprawl; and
most recently, a lecture on a particu-
lar state phenomenon, the Florida
Highwaymen a group of itinerant,
self-taught black artists who have
become world-renown.
The lunch 'n' learn series has been
successful enough, she added, that
the History Center is looking at the
potential of developing partnerships
with downtown restaurants and other
businesses. But Chelsea is not one to
rest on her laurels.

Chelsea Young points to one of the more popular displays to be found at the Polk County History
Center, a plaster mold of a prehistoric alligator head that was discovered in Polk County.


"We realized we needed something
for families, so we developed Family
Fun Day, which is held the second
Saturday of each month," she said.
Turnout thus far has been strong.
The first month it was held, int May,
approximately 20 families partici-
pated. A good number come from a
surprising source.
"We're tapping into the home-
school market," she said. Regardless,
the fun day is a hands-on experience,
and children get a literary packet
to go with what they have learned
during the day. "Families that learn
together promote better education."
Young spoke excitedly about future
possibilities, such as a Saturday eve-
ning series of portrayals by present-
ers (historians who act in costume)
through the Florida Humanities
Council out of St. Petersburg.


"I think it's an interesting way of
seeing history presented," she said.
Also on slate is promoting heri-
tage tourism. That would be a joint
venture with other entities, including
other museums and arts facilitators.
As for her personally, after she
earns her master's degree, Young has
lofty goals.
"I would hope that when I graduate
I will be able to advance my career in
the museum field," she said. "I have a
soft spot for it."
She also has a soft spot for Florida;
a fifth generation Floridian, she
would like to remain in the state.
Of course; if she was to receive an
offer from a major museum, such
as the American Museum of Natural
History, or Museum of Modern Art
(both in New York City), or perhaps
The Smithsonian ...


Woman


gives


CPR to another who collapsed in line


By DAVID H. RINALD
and JEFF ROSLOW
STAFF WRITERS

Crystal Shannon found herself in a
heroic situation last week.
At about 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, June 26,
Shannon was standing in the customer
service line at the Sebring Walmart store
when a woman collapsed at a nearby
cashier line.
"It appeared that the woman had had
a heart attack and was in severe breath-
ing distress," Shannon related.
While others gathered around,
Shannon, who is beginning nursing
studies at South Florida State College in
Avon Park, went into action.
"A staff member from Walmart gave
me a CPR kit, but it was incomplete, so
I immediately began mouth-to-mouth
CPR and continued until the EMS crew
came and relieved me," Shannon said.
The woman, Deanna Sparks, 64,
collapsed because her lung was 90
percent blocked. Her husband, Victor,
said her heart stopped once on the
floor in Walmart and twice more in the
Emergency room at the hospital.
"She died once at Walmart and twice
at the hospital," Victor said. "They had
no pulse and had to use the paddle on
her and got her back. Then they got her

to the ER."
The doctor told Victor she had less
than a 10 percent chance of living.
Deanna was at Walmart picking up
some final items for her daughter's wed-
ding which was four days away.


Because of this experience she never
went to the wedding, but now she's at
home recovering after spending nine
days in the hospital.
"They told me when they moved her
from the emergency room to critical
care they didn't think she had a chance
to make it," Victor said. "It's a miracle in
progress."
The day following her arrival at the
hospital, the doctors put her into a
coma. During the operation she had
a stent put into her heart and nurses
came out to give the family updates.
Even the doctor came out once to tell
them what was happening.
Following the wedding ceremony her
daughter, husband and seven others
went to visit her and though she was
delighted to see them she doesn't
remember the visit.
"It was a real good seven-day roller
coaster ride," Victor said. "The wedding
was bittersweet. We all went to the hos-
pital afterward ... there were nine of us.
My wife was so happy but she doesn't
remember them coming in."
And that's not all. The photographer
made a collage of the wedding with
some 300 pictures and delivered them
to Deanna the day of the wedding.
"We were shocked," Victor said. "That
was above and beyond."


Victor said though she is still a little
weak while she's recovering, the doc-
tor said she should be able to resume
normal activities. She is wearing a vest
with a defibrillator and a monitor and
her blood seems to be flowing well but
she is still very sore from being shocked
three times.
"The lower part of her heart has to be
saved now. We're taking it one day at a
time," he said.
Victor pointed out Shannon did
get help in her life-saving effort from
the EMTs and from the nurses in the
emergency room, and he is grateful to
her for jumping right into action.
"God had all the right people in the
right time in the right place," he said. "If
this happened at home we're so far out
she wouldn't have survived. If she were
in a car ... we were in the right place,"
said Victor, who had just celebrated his
48th anniversary with his wife less than
a month earlier.
This has been equally life-changing
for Shannon and she has become a
frequent visitor to Deanna.
"This was a life-changing experience
for me," Shannon said. "When you take
the CPR class for the first time you don't
think you'll ever have to use it, and then
something like this happens and it's
really good to be prepared."

Middle schoolers will get new state test


By CARA FITZPATRICK
TAMPA BAY TIMES
Middle school students in Frostproof
and all across the state can look forward to
a newend-of-the-year test.
A third of Americans can't name any of
the three branches of government. Fewer
than ialf understand what separation of
powers is, and twice as many can name
a judge on American Idol than the chief
justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Survey after survey has shown that
Americans lack basic knowledge about
how their government works. That's
something Florida lawmakers hope to
change.
The state is introducing a new end-of-
course exam in civics for middle school
students, the first high-stakes test required


for middle school promotion. Students
now have to take a civics class in middle
school. By the 2014-15 school year, they'll
have to pass the end-of-course exam to
attend high school.
High-stakes tests aren't new to Florida.
Third-graders must pass the reading
Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test
to move to the fourth grade, while high
school students must pass the FCAT to
graduate. The civics exam affects this year's
incoming sixth-graders.
State education officials plan to field test
the new civics exam this year. In the 2013-
14 school year, 30 percent-of a student's
civics grade will depend on the test score.
The state also has developed other
end-of-course exams, which affect high
school graduation. This year's incoming
ninth-graders will have to pass tests in


SPECIAL NEEDS HURRICANE PROGRAM
Polk County residents with medical conditions who require assistance during disas-
tertsuch as hurricanes may be eligible for the county's Special Needs Shelter program.
This service, provided by Polk County Emergency Management shelters and transports resi-
dents with medical or physical conditions that have no other options. This includes those who
are dependent on medical electrical equipment that require assistance during an emergency.
Those eligible include Polk County residents who live in mobile homes, unstable homesite
structures orareas of the county subject to flooding. Eligible persons, regardless of age, indude
those who:
1. Are unable to administer frequently required ordaily injectable medications on their own.
2 Require daily orfrequent dressing changes because of moderate or copious drainage, such
as ulersfistulas,etc.


algebra, biology and geometry to graduate.
Students also will take an end-of-course
exam in U.S. history, but it won't affect
graduation.
The new civics exam represents a big
change for Florida, which only recently be-
gan to require students to take a separate
civics class. For years, the subject often
was included in a government class, usu-
ally taken at the end of high school.
Of Florida school districts surveyed
between 2003 and 2005, fewer than
10 percent offered a stand-alone civics
course, according to the Florida Law
Related Education Association.
Lawmakers changed that in 2010, re-
quiring students to take the end-of-course
exam and one semester of civics in middle
school. It passed without any opposition
in either the state House or Senate.


3. Need assistance with ostomy management and indwelling catheters of any kind (n/g
tube, colostomy bags, etc.)
4. Have daily activities that are so restricted by immobility that their basic needs must be
met by others and those people are unavailable for this emergency.
5. Require daily assessment of unstable medical condition by professional nursing personnel
(i.e. cardiac, diabetic, etc).
6. Have cardiac or respiratory conditions which require special equipment such as oxygen
(three liters or less), apnea monitors, or nebulizers, etc
7. Have a terminal illness, ambulatory, and need professional assistance in administering
medication.
8. Have other special medical needs deemed by a triage nurse.

Progress Energy finalizes merger deal


By IVAN PENN
TAMPA BAY TIMES
Progress Energy and Duke Energy
finalized their merger agreement last
week, creating the nation's largest
utility with 7.1 million customers
across six states. Progress is the
company that supplies electricity in
the Greater Frostproof area.
The close of the merger ended a
year and a half of regulatory wran-
gling that twice nearly derailed the
$26 billion deal. But officials at the
two North Carolina-based utilities
remained committed to completing
the agreement.
The combined company will be
called Duke Energy and headquar-
tered in Charlotte, N.C.
Progress Energy CEO Bill Johnson,
who had been slated to be chief
executive and president of the com-
bined company, resigned by mutual
agreement, and Duke's Jim Rogers
will assume the role as the merger
between the two utilities closed.
Duke's 11th hour decision to
replace Johnson with Rogers invoked
memories of another Charlotte mega
merger that led to an executive's
departure: Bank of America ex-chief
Hugh McColl's ouster of David
Coulter in 1998.
The issue with McColl and Coulter
was the writing off of hundreds of
millions of dollars on a $1.4 billion
loan backed by Bank of America
under Coulter for a hedge fund.
"The two CEOs had a falling out in
the final stages of the merger having
to do with the size of some losses
having to do with Bank of America,"
said Peter Schwarz, an economic
professor at the University of North
Carolina at Charlotte.
In the case of Progress and Duke,
the issue, Schwarz said, it appears to
be the billions related to the broken
Crystal River nuclear plant.
"There does seem to be a parallel
possibly opening up," Schwarz said.
"It could be the recognition that the
cost of the Crystal River plant could
be a larger concern than perhaps
Duke had realized when they first
had undertaken things."
Rogers, who originally served as
Duke Energy's CEO, was initially
slated to be the executive chairman
of Duke Energy after the merger.
"The new Duke Energy will be
better able to serve our 7.1 million


customers' energy needs in a safe,
reliable, affordable and increasingly
clean manner," Rogers said. "As a
combined organization, we will work
Sto deliver benefits to our customers,
create value for our shareholders,
and enhance the career opportuni-
ties of our employees."
Because of a 1-for-3 reverse stock
split and Duke reclaiming some of
its shares, the company's stock price
soared Tuesday almost 200 percent
from $23.28 at Monday's close to
as much as $69.89 in early morning
trading.
There's no change in actual value
of Duke stock. Duke simply gave
investors one new share at the value
of three shares they had before the
merger.
Opponents of the merger took a
more ominous view.
"Creation of the nation's largest
electric utility will require enhanced
vigilance and action by public
advocates to protect our economy,
our environment and our democracy
from a giant corporation well-known
for its use of political muscle to
pursue profits and expansion," said
Jim Warren, executive director of
the environmental and consumer
watchdog organization N.C. WARN.
Robert Gardner, Greenpeace's
climate campaigner, said Duke
Energy has touted itself as a leader
"in innovating the energy market-
place," but he questions the utility's
commitment to the protecting the
environment and consumers.
"As all signs point to continued
use of fossil fuel and nuclear power
as the primary means of generating
electricity, we have doubts about the
sincerity of their rhetoric," Gardner
said.
After Progress and Duke an-
nounced the merger in January
2011, the Federal Energy Regulatory
Commission twice rejected the deal
because of concern it would hurt
competition in the Carolinas.
The two North Carolina-based
utilities Progress in Raleigh, Duke
in Charlotte eventually submitted
a plan to dilute the combined com-
pany's grip on power, and on June 8,
FERC approved the deal.
State regulators in North Carolina
approved the deal on Friday, fol-
lowed by South Carolina regulators
on Monday.
The merger is expected to result


in more than 1,800 job cuts, many
of which have already taken place.
More than 1,100 come from volun-
tary severance, 368 from vacancies
and about 350 through cuts, includ-
ing some potentially in Florida.
The Progress-Duke deal follows
another big utility merger between
Illinois-based Exelon Corp., and
Maryland-based Constellation
Energy Group. When that merger
closed, the combined Exelon compa-
ny ranked it first in the nation with
6.6 million customers and 17 million
megawatts of.power generation.
Exelon now falls to second.
But the new larger Duke will have a
myriad of challenges.
The company's new board must
decide whether to repair the bro-
ken Crystal River nuclear plant in
Citrus County, and whether to move
forward with the construction of
the $24 billion Levy County nuclear
plant.
Rogers told the Charlotte Observer
that the Crystal River plant ranks No.
1 on the new Duke's to-do list.
Because of its size, the combined
company is expected to attract
more capital for projects. But it's the
customers who will ultimately pay
for new construction, which means
bills are going to rise.
The added strength of the com-
bined companies already has led

some 30 lenders to promise $6 bil-
lion in credit after merger closes.
Rogers and Johnson have said
nuclear power is a necessary part of
the energy mix.
Both companies have proposed
nuclear projects on the books,
including Progress' Levy plant
in Florida and expansion of the
Shearon Harris plant in North
Carolina.. Duke is proposing to build
two new reactors at its Lee plant in
South Carolina.
And both utilities also have plans
for new natural gas plants, while
looking to retire some of their older
coal fired plants.
Before the merger, Duke had
constructed an advanced coal-fired
plant that will produce low emis-
sions. That project ran $1 billion
over budget and the utility agreed in
a settlement not to pass those costs
onto customers.
A former top Duke executive and
Indiana's utility regulator lost their
jobs after exchanging e-mails about
it.

PSC alumni help unravel decades-old mummy mystery


In the decades since it was unearthed,
a hulking mummy stored at a museum in
Lima, Peru, had perplexed scientists and
researchers, taunting them with questions
about what could be contained within its
nearly 200-pound bundle.
Now, thanks to two Polk State-trained
radiographers, the mummy's story is
beginning to form -just as they begin an
exciting personal chapter.
About a year ago, Patrick Phillips, who
holds two associate degrees and a bach-
elor's from the College, and who works
as an adjunct in Polk State's Radiography
program in addition to his full-timework as
a radiographer atWinter Haven Hospital,
learned about the use ofX-rays to study
mummified remains as old as 4,000 years
in Peru.
The mission immediately appealed to the
well-traveled Phillips, as well as his then-
girlfriend Megan Dennis. Dennis earned
her associate degree from Polk State in
.2010, and is now studying for her bachelor's
at the College. She works as a radiographer
atWinter Haven Hospital and Bond Clinic.
In late May, they traveled to Ilo, Peru,
accompanying a team of researchers led
by Sonia Guillen, a Lima, Peru-based
bioarchaeologist While there, Phillips and
Dennis X-rayed nearly 250 specimens,


all perfectly preserved by the region's arid
conditions, with hair and connective tissues
still intact.
In particular, Phillips and Dennis were
looking for signs of trauma to the remains
- broken bones, stab wounds, anything
that might speak to whether the deceased
lived peaceably or were prone to violence.
Each scan proved fascinating, Phillips
explained.
"We didn't find a lot of trauma. These
were peaceful people almost like hip-
pies," he said.
Many of the fractures the pair did find
were from falls which is determined by
the location of the injury and other details
- further lending to the idea that the
people got along with one another.
"When we did find fractures, many times
they had healed. If you break your leg today,
in 2012, it's a big deal and alot of things
can go wrong. The fact that the bones had
healed tells us that thousands of years ago,
these people had ways for dealing with
those kinds of injuries," Phillips said.
The most incredible discovery, however,
involved that huge museum mummy. Its
sheer mass had led to years of speculation,
with some researchers contending it must
belong to a single, larger person, while oth-
ers were sure that at least two bodies were


under all the layers of fabric and llama fur.
Phillips, Dennis, and their research
partners carefully collected a series of X-ray
images that when pieced together revealed
something unexpected: The mummy
contains the body of a child, probably no
more than 10 years old.
"Everybody was shocked to see what was
in there, we weren't expecting it at all," said
Dennis.
The discovery, while significant, spurs
numerous other questions.
"It raises all kinds of avenues and pos-
sibilities about what these people believed
about the afterlife," Phillips said.
Phillips theorizes that those who pre-
pared the child's body were distraught by
their untimely loss, and therefore wanted to
send the child into the afterlife in the form
he or she should have achieved on earth -
big and strong.
"That was a moment where I realized
that the work we were doing had a global
impact," he said. "We were answering ques-
tions that will benefit the world about
these people and how they lived."
Though momentous on a global,
historical level, the trip was also intently
personal with Phillips getting an answer
to a burning question of his own.
Phillips proposed to Dennis during an


excursion to Machu Picchu, an ancient
Incan site in the Andes Mountains.
She accepted.
"Words can't describe that experience. It's
such a beautiful view. It doesn't seem like it
was real," Dennis said.
Still reveling in his incredible journey,
Phillips said none of it would have been
possible without Polk State and he was
glad to share his Eagle pride during his time
deep in the southern hemisphere.
"It was important to me to represent
Polk. The whole reason why I was able tb
go on this journey, both professionally and
personally, was that 10 years ago I decided
to go to college and I decided to go to
Polk State."
Radiography, and the related medical-
imaging programs of Cardiovascular
Technology and Diagnostic Medical
Sonography, all fall under Polk State's
Health Sciences umbrella. Other Health
Sciences programs at the College include
Emergency Medical Services, Nursing,
Occupational Therapy Assistant, Physical
Therapist Assistant and Respiratory Care.
These programs attract students from
throughout Central Florida, and Polk State
Health Sciences students regularly outper-
form their peers in the state and nation on
required licensing exams.

Diverticulosis rarely painful; Diverticulitis always painful


DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I haven't
seen anything in your column lately on
diverticulosis or diverticulitis. Will you
please explain the difference between
the two? What can a patient eat or
not eat? What medication is taken for
them? What causes them? L.M.
ANSWER: A colon diverticulum is a
small (one-fifth to two-fifths of an inch,
a little smaller than a pea) protrusion of
the colon lining through the colon wall.
It's hollow.
The theory behind diverticula
formation is that hard, dry food
residue requires the generation of great
pressure by the colon to push it along.
That pressure pushes the colon lining
through the colon wall. Experts say that
this comes about because our diet has
too much refined grains (grains without
their bran covering). Unrefined grains
(whole grains) retain their outer bran
coat, which serves to keep undigested
food moist, soft and easily propelled
through the colon.
Diverticulosis is the condition in
which the colon has developed diver-
ticula. Usually it causes no pain. It's
quite common. Around 20 percent of
people with diverticulosis will come
down with inflammation of these pro-
trusions. That's diverticulitis, and it is


painful. The pain most often is located
in the lower-left side of the abdomen.
Mild cases of diverticulitis can be
treated at home with antibiotics and by
taking clear fluids only. In more-severe
cases, hospitalization is required, and
the person is hydrated with intrave-
nous fluids and given antibiotics.
The diet for diverticular disease is a
diet high in fiber (25 grams a day for
women; 35 for men). Whole grains, veg-
etables and fruits are high-fiber foods.
If you can't get enough fiber from
foods, then products like Metamucil,
Citrucel and Konsyl will furnish it. It's
also wise to cut back on red meats
and fats. This isn't a restrictive diet.
In former days, doctors insisted that
their patients steer clear of popcorn,


nuts, corn and seeds. That's not today's
advice. These foods are now permitted.
They don't block a diverticulum or lead
to diverticulitis.
The booklet on diverticulosis/diver-
ticulitis explains the common malady
in detail. Readers can obtain a copy
by writing: Dr. Donohue No. 502,
Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Can. with the

Please allow four weeks for delivery.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I take lisino-
pril daily. I have looked up some of its
side effects, and I have experienced
many of them. I had a rash, a persistent
cough (which has now gone), tinnitus,
trouble sleeping and muscle weakness
and pain. Do you think lisinopril is
the cause? Are there other medicines I
could replace it with? D.L.
ANSWER: Lisinopril (brand name
Prinivil) lowers blood pressure. It's one
of many ACE inhibitors, angiotensin-
converting inhibitors. They block the
conversion of angiotensin I to angioten-
sin II. Angiotensin II constricts arteries
and thereby raises blood pressure.
Lisinopril is only one of a huge horde
of blood pressure medicines. Talk to your
doctor. He or she can prescribe another


with no difficulty. Everything you men-
tion except for tinnitus (ear ringing) is a
potential side effect of ACE inhibitors.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have meant
to write you in response to the man
who thinks he might be an alcoholic.
I was shocked that you didn't mention
the 12-step program of Alcoholics
Anonymous. I know the program isn't
for everyone. I encourage people with
an alcohol problem go to a meeting
to check it out. I now have a new life
without alcohol or medicines, thanks to
AA. C.C.
ANSWER: Not mentioning AA was
an inexcusable omission on my part.
It is a program that has rescued many
alcoholics from an addiction to alcohol,
and it's done without having to resort
to medications.
I have nothing but praise for the
program.

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 request an order form of available
health newsletters at PO. Box 536475,

Study on 'Pass the potatoes' shows starch top in fasting breaker


File this scientific study under "Pass
the potatoes."
Research by food scientists at Cornell
University found that study participants
who did not eat for 18 hours generally
chose to break their fast with a meal of
starch or protein rather than vegetables.
The scientists randomly assigned 128
college students to either an 18-hour fast
or no fast at all, then monitored their eat-
ing habits. At lunch after the fast, partici-
pants ate from a buffet with their choice


With the return of warmer weather, the
Polk County Health Department reminds
all residents and visitors to be aware of
standard food safety tips that will help
prevent food-borne illnesses this summer.
Few things in life are better than a sum-
mer barbecue. Taking these few minor
steps to be sure that food is prepared and
stored properly can help avoid some very
uncomfortable moments.
Always wash your hands with warm,
soapy water before and after handling
food.
Keep marinating foods refrigerated.
Pre-heat the coals on the grill for 20-30
minutes.
Use a meat thermometer to ensure
that food reaches a safe internal tempera-
ture. Beef should be cooked to at least 160
degrees F and chicken to 170 degrees E
Fish is done when the meat is no longer

Lewis Family Cancer Fund give $25K to Foundation


Third annual charity event has record participation with Zoeller on hand


The Wipter Haven Hospital
Foundation had a third major
contribution from the Lewis Family
Cancer Fund.
On June 27, the Lewis fund con-
tributed $25,000 to the Foundation
and directed that the money sup-
port patient care at the hospital's
cancer center.
The funds were raised during a,
two-day event May 18-19 sponsored
by Bright House Networks and
Fuzzy's Ultra Premium Vodka. The
event included a kickoff reception
at the Lake Eva banquet center in
Haines City and a golf tournament
on the following day at the Southern
Dunes Country Club.
The tournament attracted a
capacity field of 34 teams and the
reception was attended by more
than 450 people.
Josh Lewis, who co-founded
the Lewis Family Cancer Fund
with his brother Geoff, said par-
ticipation in this year's event was
"record-setting."
Over the past three years, the
Lewis Family Cancer Fund has
contributed a total of $70,000 to the
Winter Haven Hospital Foundation
in support of the hospital cancer
center's fight against cancer..
"We're very fortunate to have the
encouragement of so many friends
. and family members who are aware
of our family's fight against cancer
and who have their own friends and


family members whose lives have
been affected by cancer," Josh Lewis
said. "That we can make a substan-
tial contribution in the fight against
cancer to our community's locally
owned and locally operated hospital
is just so meaningful to us."
The Lewis Family Cancer Fund
is a donor-advised fund organized
through the Community Foundation
of Greater Winter Haven. The Lewis
brothers launched their fund-
raising initiative after undergoing
numerous personal experiences
with cancer. The two men lost their
mother, Ingred Mae, to cancer when
they were 10 and 11 years old, and
Geoff Lewis is currently undergoing
treatment for colon cancer. Their
father, Harry W. "Bill" Lewis, suc-
cessfully underwent treatment in
2009 for prostate cancer.
Lewis also expressed gratitude to
family friend and professional golfer
Fuzzy Zoeller, who has lent his
name .and support to the charitable
event for three years in a row.
"Fuzzy has been extraordinarily
generous with his time and his
friendship to our family," Lewis said.
"We just can't thank him enough."
Zoeller's association with the
Lewis family dates back to 1987.
The week their mother passed away
in October of that year, the two
boys were taken by their father to
a PGA tour event at Walt Disney
World. During the tournament,


word reached Zoeller about the boys
and the loss they had suffered. The
golfer reached out to the family
and invited the boys to accompany
him inside the boundaries on the
final day of the tournament and has
remained a dear friend ever since.
"The commitment of the Lewis
family and the work they have done
to rally the community in the fight
against cancer should be an inspira-
tion to us all," Eric Adamson, chair-
man of the Winter Haven Hospital
Foundation Board of Trustees, said.
"On behalf of the entire Foundation
Board of Trustees and all of the can-
cer patients Winter Haven Hospital
cares for, I offer my thanks to the
Lewis family, Fuzzy Zoeller, and all
the participants who came together
to make this happen."
Lance Anatasio, president and
CEO of Winter Haven Hospital,
said: "Throughout the history of
this community, we are continually


reminded of how this not-for-profit
healthcare organization came into
existence and why it continues to
endure. It has always been commu-
nity-minded individuals and fami-
lies, like the Lewis family, who have
rallied their friends and neighbors
together to provide for the health-
care needs of our community. We
are all blessed by their generosity
and spirit."
Joel Thomas, vice president
development, marketing & public
relations for Winter Haven Hospital,
said: "Having visionary friends and
philanthropic leaders like the Lewis
family and their friends is key to the
Foundation's ability to advance the
future of healthcare we all want to
see right here where we live. We are
,very grateful to the Lewis family for
their commitment to this continu-
ing initiative and we look forward
to working with them for years to
come."

Study: Americans taking in too much sodium


Sodium is in almost everything and many don't realize it


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @ POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
A slice of bread has about 240 milli-
grams of sodium in it. That's about
10 percent of what a person needs daily
in each slice.
S Sodium is everywhere and in a
study published in the latest issue of
the American Journal of Preventive
Medicine, researchers found that
despite warnings from the health care
community Americans are still consum-
ing too much salt in their diets.
In fact, even those who have been
diagnosed with high blood pressure are
still consuming more than the recom-
mended daily amounts. Other health
problems high sodium intake.can lead
to are diabetes and possibly stroke.
The problem is most people do not
understand that regular table salt is not
the only source of sodium in the diet.
Food does not need to taste salty to be
high in sodium.
"Table salt is sodium chloride, but
other chemicals containing sodium,
such as monosodium glutamate (MSG),
sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and
sodium benzoate are used in foods
as flavorings or preservatives," said
Umed Ajani, an epidemiologist with the
National Center for Chronic Disease
Prevention and Promotion, who took
part in the study.
"The American Medical Association
says that 98 percent of the people eat
twice as much sodium than what is
recommended for a healthy diet," said
Susan Kisler, a dietician with the Polk
County Health-Department.
She said the AMA recommends
people have 3,436 milligrams daily
and adds, "If Americans cut to 1,500
milligrams high blood pressure would
decrease 26 percent and $26 billion a

year would be reduced in health care
costs in a year."
Four thousand milligrams of sodium
is equal to about two teaspoons.
Researchers say it is important for
people to understand that sodium is
a major ingredient used in food they
buy in grocery stores and is also highly
utilized in restaurant food.
Using less pre-packaged and pro-
cessed foods is another important step
in reducing the amount of sodium in
the diet. Fresh fruits and vegetables
are low or sodium free. Salt is often
used as a flavor enhancer for cooked


HERE ARE SOME TIPS FOR CUTTING SALT INTAKE:
*Taste buds adjust. Scientists have found that when you cut back K
on salt; you get used to it in about three weeks.
Note that pickles, cheese, smoked meats, gravies, sauces,
salad dressings, barbecue sauces, soy sauce and broths are usually
high in sodium, so use them sparingly. A tablespoon of soy sauce,
for instance, contains 1,000 mg of sodium. Hot sauces are often
sodium-free; read the labels. Si d
Ask the server for help. Request that foods be prepared without
added salt, or ask for sauces and salad dressings on the side. For
low-sodium dressings, try lemon, lime or a splash of vinegar. Get to know the delicious difference between the
taste of red wine, sherry, rice wine and balsamic and cider vinegars.
Look for menu items you can season at the table, such as a baked potato instead of mashed potatoes.
Surface salt, such as a light shake on scrambled eggs or fresh sliced tomatoes, can give you the salt flavor you
crave with just a sprinkling.
Upgrade your salt shaker. Sea salt (which by weight contains the same amount of sodium as regular salt)
Sis often brighter and livelier in flavor, so you can use less to season foods. Amy Myrdal, a registered dietitian
with the Culinary Institute of America's campus in Napa Valley, Calif., said all salts are not alike. Kosher salt, for
example, contains only 1,120 milligrams of sodium per teaspoon.
SEat more spinach, cantaloupe, oranges and other fruits and vegetables. They're naturally low in sodium and
are excellent sources of the mineral potassium, which acts as the healthy counterbalance to sodium in body
fluid regulation. Salsas made with fresh fruit and vegetables are a great way to add healthyflavors to foods.
Atlanta Journal Constitution


vegetables. Less salt is needed if
vegetables are not overcooked (which
removes flavor).
"In the grocery store, reading labels
is essential," Kisler said. "Labels were
revised a number of years ago to
include nutrients, but not everything is
on the label."
But the label does show the sodium
per serving and Kisler said it's also im-
portant to know what a serving means
when reading those labels.
"If it says 300 mg per in a serving
know what a serving is. If you buy a
can of Campbell's soup, it says 800-900
milligrams per serving, but there are
two servings per can."
And, while she said people can notice
the salty taste in some canned soups,
the salt isn't always tasted in all foods.
"The soups kind of taste salty, but
then bread when you eat a slice doesn't
taste salty, but it's there."
Kisler also warned people who feel
like they need to give up more sodium
to not be fooled by things labeled as
being lower in fat and healthier.
"Even though something is light,
it can have salt," she said. "Gererally
that's talking about fat. When things are
lower in fat they're increasing the salt
content to make the flavor better."
Check out the enhancers, too, for
sodium content, she said.
"Seasoned salt has sodium. Spices
like jerk seasons, chili powder, have salt.
You have to kind of look at what you're
getting," she said. "Flavor enhanc-
ersJike Mrs. Dash make wonderful
seasonings."


That is something people can be
challenged with in restaurants. As
restaurants create foods lower in fat
and calories salty spice blends are being
used.
Some chain restaurants provide
sodium information on their websites.
But when dining out, you're often on
your own.
Most salt comes from processed
foods such as salad dressings, soups,
cheeses, baked goods and snack foods.
So cut back on portions or choose
lower-sodium versions; there are many
better-tasting ones on the market today.
"Some restaurants buy food already
seasoned so you can't get it off it," Kisler
said. "Some buy fish fresh and cook it
there. Don't be afraid to ask. It's all for
your health."
So the big question remains. If the
sodium is everywhere and it can cause
blood pressure problems, diabetes arid
more how does someone watch their
intake to combat these problems?
"I would recommend if someone
has blood pressure problems, try first
to give up the salt shaker at the table,"
Kisler said. "The next thing I would
suggest is revise the recipe. When it says
use salt, cut in half."
See how this goes and by degrees
people will get used to it, she said.
She said don't cut out all salt because
bodies need sodium.
But, "We don't need to add sodium
to our diets," she said. "Under normal
conditions people don't need to add
sodium." Some beverages also have
sodium.

Fulfilling Lakeland Regional Health
Systems' mission of providing ex-
ceptional healthcare means offering
state-of-the-art facilities, treatments
and technologies; hiring top-notch
physicians, nurses and staff; and taking
a proactive, leadership role in deliver-
ing the quality care residents in Polk
County and beyond expect and deserve.
In assessing the needs of this commu-
nity, it is apparent that Polk County is
in critical shortage of physicians. Today,
Polk County has only 60.7 primary care
physicians for every 100,000 residents,
compared to 89.6 nationally and 96.9
in Florida. Consequently, Polk County
scores worse than the nation, state, and
other local counties in nearly all health
outcome measures, including diabetes,
cancer, heart disease, and stroke. The
lack of physician access results in
Lakeland Regional housing the busiest
single-site emergency department in
the state, with approximately 150,000
annual visits.
All of these patients could be better
treated for preventive and chronic care
by primary care physicians.
As stated in the hospital's 2011-12
strategic plans, Lakeland Regional is
addressing this community need by
evaluating the feasibility of offering
medical college graduates the opportu-
nity to complete their clinical residency
training at LRMC, thereby transforming


LRMC into a teaching hospital. Not
only would these residents deliver care
to the community, but many would be
expected to stay after residency to es-
tablish practices in underserved areas.
As a first step, Lakeland Regional has
engaged a consultant from Germane
Solutions to lead the hospital in mea-
suring the operational effectiveness of a
GME program and its potential impact
on improving the already strong quality
of care. Building upon this foundational
strength, Lakeland Regional plans to
reach new standards for healthcare
outcomes and recognition. Lakeland
Regional recognizes that all of the 17
hospitals named to the U.S. News and
World Report "national honor roll of top
hospitals" are teaching hospitals. The
ability to combine leading edge educa-
tion and research with a strong care
delivery system is thought to bring the
most advanced medicine to the bedside
in real time.

Lakeland Regional's Raeanne Cook

Cook was nominated and selected by
the students at USF for being a bright,
positive role model known for her effec-
tive communication and teaching skills.
Raeanne says sharing her knowledge
with the USF students comes naturally
because she remembers what it was like
being a student herself.
"I have only been a nurse for three
years, so I am able to put myself in
their position. I try to be patient and


lead, while providing an opportunity
for the students to have real nursing
experiences and the chance to adapt
and grow," said Cook.
