Council starts ball rolling toward utility rate hike


By BRIAN ACKLEY
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
Frostproof residents already knew
they faced a utility rate hike later this
year, and Monday night the city council
began to change the local law that will
allow them to do that.
The current local ordinance allows
the city to only increase rates by the
Consumer Price Index, according to


the law's interpretation by city attor-
ney Mark Smith. In fact, the city has
technically been in violation of that
ordinance the last two years, he said,
since there is little wiggle room in the
law which mandates such an annual
increase.
City officials, however, have not
opted to raise rates the last two years.
Of course, it's highly unlikely that
anyone would file suit against the city


for not raising its rates, Smith said,
but if they did, officials might have to
retroactively raise the rates for those
two years to be in compliance.
To remedy the problem, council
gave unanimous approval to a first
reading of a new ordinance that would
give the city council freedom to adjust
rates however they see fit, and not be
handcuffed by being tied solely into
the CPI rate. Smith was not the city's


attorney when the current ordinance
was drafted several years ago.
"If you want the council to have total
control of up or down on water rates,
no restrictions in the future, it's better
to eliminate all of this language that
was here before," Smith said.
Mayor Kay Hutzelman said the CPI
tie in was there to make it easy each

School peddles positive-support, with community help


Frostproof Elementary


'store'


looking to stock up for new year


By GEORGE FRANICEVICH
NEWS@FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
Frostproof Elementary School's staff
and students have deemed the school's
version of the "Positive Behavioral
Support System" a resounding success.
And with the community's support
the program will continue to grow


next semester.
While you may not recognize the
program by its name, you may rec-
ognize the program by its goals and
accomplishments.
The program as'implemented
in Frostproof is reminiscent of the
schools of decades past; schools
where the teaching of basic values


and rewarding of good behavior
were part of the curriculum and
schools where the rules emphasizing
positive behavior were clearly
stated and inappropriate behav-
iors were responded to swiftly and
consistently.
While the program was developed
and is maintained by the school staff


under the auspices of the Frostproof
Elementary Positive Behavior Team,
the core of the reward program is
the Frosty Store, maintained and
stocked primarily through the efforts
of Frostproof Elementary's Volunteer of
the Year, Noemi Cruz.

VIEWPOINT


Florida loses ground on sales tax collection


Florida is falling behind once again. This time the
state is late to the starting gate in a national effort to
reap tens of millions of dollars in unpaid sales taxes
on Internet purchases and in recruiting online mer-
chants such as Amazon to build distribution center
in the state as other states, including California and
New Jersey, have done.
The latest GOP convert to break from rapidly
disintegrating party orthodoxy on the issue is New
Jersey Gov. Chris Christy, who was featured in a front-
page story in Monday's Wall Street Journal that also
highlighted a bipartisan consensus on a federal bill
that would strengthen states' hands in forcing virtual
retailers to collect sales taxes.
The Florida Legislature balked at passing a state
law during the last legislative session, despite Scott's
support for the measure, although Scott compli-
cated matters by insisting on matching cuts in state
spending.
The jobs governor also has failed to initiate the kind
of growth-boosting effort to lure Amazon, the world's
largest online retailer into building a distribution
center in the state that would effectively trigger an
existing requirement that it collect sales taxes. State


Our Viewpoint
lawrequires companies that have a physical presence
in the state to do so.
The Journal article noted Amazon, among other
competitors, is making significant investments in
distribution centers to enable it to offer same-day
delivery of purchases. Due to its size and distance
from existing delivery hubs, it makes sense for
Amazon to locate a shipping center somewhere in
Florida. Amazon has already reached out to the state
in anticipation of some movement on the Internet
sales tax, offering to invest up to $200 million in
Florida to build distribution centers, according to a
January 2012 Tampa Bay Times report. (Why not here,
Polk County commissioners?)
The state's business community, including the
Florida Chamber of Commerce, Associated Industries
of Florida and the Florida Retail Federation, is
uniformly behind implementing an online sales tax,
mainly because of the advantage Internet firms gain
over their "bricks-and-mortar" members. Florida
TaxWatch also backs the tax, saying "Not requiring
Internet sellers to collect sales tax not only erodes
i


Florida's tax base, but also creates an unfair advan-
tage over 'bricks-and-mortar' retailers and 'clicks
and bricks' retailers with both online and traditional
stores."
A February 2012 study by the Florida Center for
Fiscal and Economic Policy estimated the lack of an
Internet sales tax costs Florida between $250 million
and $800 annually. Other studies put the figure as
high as $1 billion a year.
The social cost pushes that figure even higher
considering the role locally operated businesses play
in their communities, ranging from jobs and property
taxes to sponsorships and charitable contributions.
When's the last time you saw a Little League team
sponsored by Amazon?
Florida's inability to enforce existing sales tax col-
lection on residents and its unwillingness to shift the
burden for collecting owed taxes to retailers puts its
struggling stores at a disadvantage and robs the state
of resources it desperately needs.
With common sense and the majority of the state's
most powerful business groups solidly behind reform,
it's comical that our political leaders in Tallahassee
can't figure out how to get it done.


Letters to the editor


Stop the leaks
The country needs to find out who
was the source of several classified top-
secret intelligence information to the
national press-media and do it quickly.
These leaks have badly damaged our
national security and severely impeded
our ability to recruit new intelligence
sources. If true, these leaks have sent
one Pakistani doctor to prison for
the rest of his life, outed intelligence
sources within Yemen Al Qaita, and a
possible cyber attack on Iran.
These leaks have caused various
sources of intelligence to no longer
feel that the U.S. Government can be
trusted to keep secrets. This loss of
faith limits our ability to ward off future
terrorist attacks against our country. We
must identify the leakers and if possible
prosecute them to the fullest extent of
the law. If we cannot do that, then they
need to be excluded from any future
intelligence briefings.
The quickest way to find the traitors
is for the President to order all of the
people who were in the intelligence

claims of confidentiality. Then anyone
who refuses to do that would be
barred from top-secret information. All
persons the list is small who were
privy to the leaked intelligence could be
investigated including lie-detector tests.,
This investigation could be done right
now by the appropriate Congressional
committees-Armed Service and
Intelligence.
These committees are already set up
to handle classified information and
could start their search right now, not 6
months or more from now, which will
be the case if the Department of Justice
does it.
It is vitally important that these leaks
be stopped and the sooner the better,

year for the city to raise rates a little bit.
"The idea was to eliminate the de-
bate," she said. "It just made it simple
that there was a minimum amount it
would be increased each time. We never
looked at it from the fact we might not
(raise rates)."
Officials are looking at two rate
increase options that would be imple-
mented this fall. One would keep the
current tier structure for rates in tact,
and raise prices across the board by the
CPI, which is about 2.4 percent. In the
current setup, the minimum usage
charge for water and sewer is 3,000
gallons per month.
The second option would more
greatly impact a larger number of
residents. It would lower the mini-
mum usage amount to 2,000 gallons
per month, which would lower those
bills. A new tier, from 2,000 to 5,000
gallons would then be created, which
covers the majority of the system's us-
ers. When the CPI increase is figured
into this set up, those people in the
second tier would see their bills rise
by approximately $10 a month.
Council members agreed to continue
the rate option discussions in conjunc-
tion with budget planning for the new
fiscal year which starts Oct. 1. The city
has scheduled a budget workshop for
4 p.m. on July 30.

It is no sin to take money. That is the

expansion of the waste-water treatment
plant and $100,000 that will be needed
to relocate water lines in conjunction
with a state sidewalk project along
Scenic Highway.
This spring, city auditor Turner
Wiggins "strongly" recommended
that the city look'at raising additional
revenue, since its sewer and water
operations were essentially just break-
ing even.
Besides revenue, officials have been
looking at ways to cut expenses.
At a special meeting on June 25, the
council agreed to dip into its general
fund reserves, estimated at around
$2.7 million, to pay off a Citizen's
Bank Loan that had been taken out to
purchase a well near the Church on
the Ridge. A total of $185,732.01 was
approved to retire that debt early, a
measure that will save the city about
$32,000 in costs this year.
In addition, the city has started in
motion the process to look at refinanc-
ing about $1.7 million in debt still
attached to the utility expansion work
done in recent years. It is hoped that a
lower interest rate might save the city
an additional $30,000 or so as well,
but any actual savings amount, if
any, won't be known until refinancing
offers are actually in hand later this
summer.
City officials indicated this week
that refinancing packages have been
submitted to more than a dozen
financial institutions who have until
mid-September to make a formal
proposal. The city's consultant earlier
this summer said he was hopeful that
number would come in around
3.8 percent. If it's lower, the savings, of
course, would be greater.

an old theory that has never worked. I
can also see the class warfare against
the middle class these politicians are
waging. The poor do not have to worry
about paying taxes since they are poor,
and you can not squeeze juice from
a rock. The rich get richer with all the
tax breaks they get. The middle class is
the one who gets the burden of paying
for the rich tax exemption, and for the
poor inability to pay taxes. Indeed there
is a class warfare against the middle
class.

There was a time when police
departments were looked at as "profit
centers" for local governments. In 45
years of covering city commissions in
three cities, I have seen police chiefs
taken to task by city commissions for
not bringing enough revenue into the
city treasury.
That paradigm has changed, and for
the better.
Hopefully that change comes at
least in part from a realization
(except in speed trap towns, and most
motorists know which ones they are)
that law enforcement actions should
not be motivated by municipal profits.
The fact that the state now rakes
off a lot of the fine revenue probably
reduces the incentive for such chica-
nery. And many officers will privately
acknowledge that fines for minor
traffic infractions that exceed a small
family's weekly grocery budget make
them reluctant to issue tickets.

A Tampa motorist named Bud Nelson
made headlines last week when he re-
ceived two speeding tickets because the
thieves who stole his car were caught
on camera running red lights.
He notified local law enforcement

Frostproof Elementary "recognizes

"Through your donation, you can

and sent a letter of protest to the
company that sends out bills for the
fines and sets license suspensions in
motion. It didn't work; his license was
suspended because he didn't file the
specific paperwork that the company
requires. His lawyer said this is a classic
example of being presumed guilty until
proven innocent. And it most assuredly
is.

Florida law does not make it unlaw-
ful to own a car that runs a red light;
it makes it unlawful for a driver to
run a red light. And Florida law most
assuredly does not make it unlawful
to have lost an auto to car thieves who
then run a red light.
But that is the offense for which
Nelson's license was suspended.

Red light cameras are a throwback to
an era when traffic fines were a major
revenue source for cities. The only
difference is that now the private sector
has figured out how to profit from
them, too. It's not the principle of the
thing.
It's the money.

(S. L. Frisbie is retired. Despite the
tone of this column, he has never been
nabbed by a red light camera. For him,
it's not about the money; it's about the
principle of the thing. That's his story
and he's sticking to it.)

Jason Todd Roe.
Even though
Jason was born

never an option to
live an extraordinary life. An extraordi-

Jason went to be with the Lord on
July 13, 2012 at the Good Shepherd
Hospice House in Sebring, Fla.
He was born into an amazing family
on March 22, 1972 in Steubenville, OH
to Billy and Leanna (Lacy) Roe. Being
the son of a minister, he learned at an
early age how to love people well as
well as how to have fun. Jason attended
Warner University from 1992-1996.
He began working there in 1997 until
now. The students at Warner University
had his heart. His passion was to help
others realize their potential and allow
them to know the Love and Forgiveness
of Jesus. Up until his last breath he
proclaimed that all should, "Live life to
the fullest."
Jason also loved his church and the
people he worshiped with at South
Lake Wales Church of God. God
equipped Jason to minister to others
through song and working with the
teens and college students. He would
want them to know, "Don't wait!"
When looking at his life he was a
devoted husband and a proud father.
He loved his family. He and Lana, his
wife, were joined at the hip and en-
joyed every moment of their 17 years

COUNTY REPORT


Faux: Half of Polk mortgages'under water'


By PEGGY KEHOE
PKEHOE@POLLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM .

While "we're kind of headed in the right direction,"
next year will probably still be negative for Polk
SCounty, Property Appraiser Marsha Faux told Bartow
Kiwanis Club members Friday.
As of July 1, the tax roll is down 4.79 percent from
last year, Faux reported, but something positive in
that is that there was an 11 percent drop in 2009, then
14 percent the next year, and now 4 percent, "so we're
kind of headed in right direction."
Forty-five percent of Florida mortgages are under
water (meaning the mortgage is more than the house
value), according to figures on zillow.com, but in Polk
County, that number is 52 percent, Faux said. The
county currently has 3,041 single family homes for
sale, which is about 5.1 months of housing inventory.
"To get demand up and get rid of that inventory,
the price has to come down," she said.
More than likely we'll have another negative in the
tax roll in 2012, Faux predicted, so 2014 may be the
first year "we level out."
One in every 401 homes in Florida is in foreclosure,
Faux said, and one in 320 homes in Polk County. In
April that number was one in 310 and in May, one
in 290; now it is back up. Florida still has the third
largest number of foreclosures in the country behind
California and Nevada.
"I'm not giving you any great news, and I'm sorry
about that, other than we're alive and well."
The average median house value has gone from
$174,476 in 2008 to $92,000 in 2012, a 43 percent
decline in the tax roll.
Faux also discussed four constitutional amendments af-
fecting property taxes that will be on the November ballot.
Amendment 9 adds surviving spouses of emer-
gency first responders to the law allowing total or
partial property tax exemptions to surviving spouses
of military service veterans killed in the line of duty.
First responders are defined as a law enforcement of-
ficer, a correctional officer, a firefighter, an emergency
medical technician, or a paramedic.
Amendment 11 is an amendment that would allow
counties and municipalities to grant an additional
homestead tax exemption to seniors equal to the


assessed value of homestead property valued at
less than $250,000 to an owner who has maintained
permanent residency for at least 25 years, who is at
least 65, and who has a legally-defined low household
income.
Faux said she is not really concerned about those
two amendments and explained that no fiscal impact
has been given yet on these two possible amend-
ments, Faux said.
However, Amendment 10, allowing an exemption for
tangible personal property valued at between $25,000
and $50,000, could result in a revenue loss of $600,000
to $640,000 to the county, Faux said. Tangible personal
property includes assets in a business that are not part of
the structure or the walls, such as shelving units and cases.
The amendment would allow local taxing au-
thorities to offer the exemption in addition to those
allowed by the state.
Most complicated and potentially most costly
would be the fourth dealing with property tax,
Amendment 4, which is supported by the state
Chamber of Commerce and Realtors, Faux explained.
It has three pieces. The first part says that the as-
sessment "of homestead and specified nonhomestead
property may not increase if the just value of that
property is less than the just value of the property on
the preceding Jan. 1," the amendment reads, subject
to adjustments in the assessed value due to changes
or improvements to the property.
Secondly, the amendment "reduces from 10 percent
to 5 percent the limitation on annual changes in
assessments of nonhomestead real property."
The third piece would allow an additional home-
stead exemption for first-time home buyers over and
above the regular homestead exemption. It would
apply to all taxing authorities except the school
district and to those who have not owned homestead
property in the previous three calendar years.
The additional exemption would apply for 5 years,
unless the house is sold before that. The amount of the
additional exemption would be reduced by 20 percent
each year.
Property appraisers across the state would have to
validate that those applying for the exemption are
actually first-time home buyers. With 67 counties,
"how on earth can we check" them all to validate the

Club Friday.

people are first-time home buyers.
"A person could potentially have a house for four-
and-half years and pay no taxes," Faux said, depend-
ing on the home's value, adding that this amendment
"could be huge" in impact. "There's still a bunch of
stuff about this that isn't clear."
The effects of Amendment 4 could be an "account-
ing nightmare," Faux said. There's "no way of knowing
the fiscal impact.
"Right now there's now way to estimate what
Amendment 4 would cost us," not only in revenue to
the county and municipalities. "It will be very expen-
sive to administer." "

Goodman quits USF faculty position


By KIM WILMATH
TAMPA BAY TIMES
Marshall
Goodman the
former chan-
cellor of the-
University of
South Florida
Polytechnic who
led the campus
on a quest to
independence,
who made head-
lines for buying
giant slides and Marshall Goodman
Star Wars statues
on the school's
dime, and who was being investigated
following complaints about a hostile
work environment under his reign -
is leaving the campus for good.
Goodman had been on paid "pro-
fessional development" leave from
USF since December, when USF
President Judy Genshaft demoted
him. She had given him the option of
returning to campus after a year and
retaining a $150,000-a-year faculty
position.
But on Thursday, he resigned.
A memo spelling out the terms
of Goodman's departure offers few
details about what made him jump
ship.
It does, however, reference that
investigation into his leadership an
investigation rendered "impractical


and unnecessary" now that he's out
the door, according to the memo.
"The university takes its responsi-
bility to review employment concerns
seriously," wrote Frank Brown, an
attorney consulted to oversee a USF
investigation into complaintsaired
by Poly staffers months ago amid a
separate look at questionable spend-
ing at the campus. "We have met with
several employees and have recently
interviewed Dr. Goodman and heard
his explanation of the issues.
"Dr. Goodman has since voluntarily
resigned."
We may never know exactly what
kinds of issues the memo is talking
about, or Goodman's explanation of
them.
Now that he's leaving, the investiga-
tion is kaput. Any interview notes
gathered during its course are not
public records, a USF spokeswoman
said.
"There's no written product to
produce," said Lara Wade-Martinez.
Goodman is leaving with some
$147,000: About $58,000 for earned
and accrued annual leave time and
.$88,600 for the remaining balance
of his professional development
compensation, which was equal to his
$254,000 regional chancellor salary.
If he gets another job before that
annual leave is up in November,
though, he'll have to pay USF back
money for whatever time remains at
that point.

State honors Ben Hill Griffin Elementary worker

Mary Lou Perez cited for work with migrant students


A special employee at Ben Hill Griffin
Elementary has been recognized by the state for
her work with students of migrant workers.
The Florida Department of Education recently
named Mary Lou Perez as the Florida Migrant
Home-School Liason of the year, one of several
local students and adults recognized for their
efforts.
Lizbeth Macedo and Jovanny Nava 2012 Florida
Exemplary Migrant Scholars. Lizbeth Macedo
graduated at the top of her class at Fort Meade
Middle-Senior High where she was named the
2011-2012 Salutatorian. Jovanny Nava is the 2011-
2012 Salutatorian at Mulberry High.
Honorees attended the FLDOE's 2012 Florida
Exemplary Migrant Scholars Banquet held
in Tampa recently. Additional students who
have been acknowledged by FLDOE's Migrant
Education Program includes
Mayra Morales Hernandez (Traviss Career
Center) and Clemencia Pineda (Mulberry) as
Florida Migrant Scholars of the Year.
Each year the state recognizes exemplary
migrant students who have overcome obstacles
to reach academic excellence. Adult recipients
are celebrated for their dedication to migrant


students, youth and families as they unconscious-
ly remind everyone that one person can make a
difference. All recipients inspire others to follow
suit and become pillars of the community, county
school district officials noted.
Perez works for the Polk County Migrant
Program as a home school liaison, serving migrant
parents and students. She was raised in a migrant
household in Texas and worked many long hours
and days alongside her family throughout the
United States.
Her dedication to the migrant program and mi-
grant families is unmatched, school officials note.
The mother of three understands the difficulties
and obstacles that the parents and students
struggle with. This drives her and makes her work
harder to be as accessible as possible.
She also does a wonderful job of partnering with
the community and local churches to accumulate
donations of food, clothes and other essentials
needy families and out of school youth might
need, district officials'added.
Her office is located at Ben Hill Griffin, Jr.
Elementary but she also handles the same-duties
at Frostproof Elementary and Frostproof Middle
Senior High School. Other liaisons are often -

THE ONLY SUMMER BARBECUE THAT SAVES YOU MONEY


GOING ON NOW AT SORENSEN & SCHADE JEEP-


CHRYSLER-DODGE- RAM


Jeep ---- i


LAKE WALES, FLORIDA It's a
fact that backyard barbecues are
popping up everywhere around
Lake Wales this summer, even in
one place that's sure to surprise.
A most unlikely spot, the car lot.
General Sales. Manager. Wayne
Weathersby is donning an apron
and getting ready to do some
grilling of his own.

But be warned: it's not meat he's
grilling up! Instead of corn on
the cob, they'll be roasting your
old ride and offering up car on
the cob at Sorensen & Schade
Jeep Chrysler Dodge Ram
this weekend during the Back-
yard Car-B-Q.



TOO HOT FOR

THE AUCTIONS
Weathersby explained, "It's hot-
ter than Hades right now. I'm just
plain exhausted.. The last thing
I want to do is spend my days
scrambling for cars at the auc-
tion. Problem is, July is my busy
time of year and I need cars now
more than ever."

"That's why I'm inviting everyone
down to my summer Backyard Car-
B-Q. I know people can't resist a
summer soirde so when they trade
in any car over 2 years old, I'll
give them up to $4.704.00 off any
vehicle in stock so they can stop
driving a car they hate and upgrade
to a nicer, newer car. I'll bypass the
auction and they'll get to go home
in their nicer, newer ride and have


some summer fun in the process."
Everybody knows that car dealers
rely on sales during the summer
months to keep their business in the
red from year to year. 75% of their
annual profit comes from sales dur-
ing these peak summer months.
With the increase in sales comes
the need to restock inventory. It's
very important for car dealers to
take in as many trades as they can
to keep up with demand especially
when fuel prices and inventory lev-
els are as unpredictable as they are
right now.

So right now is the best time to up-
grade your car and life; trade in any
vehicle over 2 years old and get
up to $4.704.00 off a nicer, newer
car so that you can stop driving
a car. you hate at the Backyard
Car-B-0 where Weathersby is
flipping' cars instead of burgers!

OF 2012-Braggin' Rights' go to the

As Weathersby made very clear, "I
don't want anyone to stay away from-
my Backyard Car-B-Q because of
bad credit. I don't care a hoot about
what that report says. I work hard to
help as many people as I can get ap-
proved,-especially those who really
need my help. I really do want ev-
eryone to leave the party in a nicer,
newer car. I believe no one should
have to drive a car they hate."

way to treat [his/her] customers

Latt Maxcy


Memorial Library alive with magic


Monday's night program at the Latt Maxcy Memorial Library drew a nice crowd of kids and parents.


PHOTOS BY K.M. THORNTON SR.
This young lady, Yvette (Lyndel made her last name disappear), got to help out with one of the
tricks.


One of Lyndel's tricks was combining a white hanky and a black hanky
into a combined black and white one.


As the finale, Lyndel picked roses from his magical bush, which somehow grew back, hopeful
inspiring the youngsters to remember that opportunities are endless, and to dream big and read.


Lyndel made quite an entertaining baby, believe it or not.


Jacob, Gabe and Shayla were all part of the audience, and they got picked as "volunteers" on one trick.

County


gives


OK for new police academy


School will be located at


PCSO operations center


By STEVE STEINER
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
Approval was granted by Polk
County Commissioners at their July
10 regular meeting for the creation of
a police academy that will be located
on the campus of the Polk County
Sheriff's Office Operations Center near
Winter Haven.
In an interlocal agreement, 10 acres
has been authorized by the Board of
County Commissioners to be sold to'
Polk State College for $1. In addition
to the police academy, other courses
in public safety, such as emergency
management services, will also be
taught at the new facility.
Upon completion, the facility will
have a total of 100,000 square feet,
10 times larger than the site, where
classes are now being taught at another
campus, also located in Winter Haven.
According to Linda McKinley,


deputy county attorney, this was
first broached by Sheriff Grady Judd
in 2009. However, it was not until
this year that the Florida Legislature
approved $9.25 million toward the
venture.
"This is the latest in a number of
very successful partnerships with the
sheriff," McKinley said.
However, that initial funding only
covers one-third the estimated cost,
which is projected at $30 million, ac-
cording to Peter Elliott, vice president
of administration for PSC.
Response by commissioners fol-
lowing a PowerPoint presentation by
Elliot was positive.
"When's the groundbreaking?" asked
Commissioner Todd Dantzler. That was
yet to be determined Was Elliott's reply.
In addition to raising additional funds,
more groundwork needs to be done,
including having an architect and
engineer design the proposed facility,


as well as hiring a contractor. The plans
are necessary, said Elliott, to demon-
strate to the Legislature that progress is
being made, as PSC intends to petition
for more funding during the 2012-2013
legislative session.
Elliott later noted that PSC would
be applying for a bachelor's degree in
criminal sciences once the facility is
up and running.
"How many students do you expect?
Are there other facilities in the state?"
asked Commissioner Bob English.
Taking the second question first,
Elliott told English that although he
did not have that information with
him, there currently are several; he
knew of one in Broward County.
As to the number of students, Elliott
stated ultimate enrollmenthad not yet
been determined.
"Will we be attracting students
from out of the county?" English then
asked.


"Absolutely," said Elliott.
What the current space would
be used for was of interest to
Commissioner Edwin V. Smith. That
space will be refurbished and used for
other classrooms, Elliott said.

FCAT falling short


Local


officials


agree to


Gov.


Scott's questions about test


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
Like Gov. Rick Scott, Polk County
school officials say students may be
overtested and that recent Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Tests don't
show a true picture of how good or bad
Polk County schools and students are.
Polk County School Board
Chairman Hazel Sellers and Assistant
Superintendent for Learning David
Lewis maintain that changing FCAT
standards "in mid-stream" have af-
fected the test results and fall short of
representing what Polk students are
actually learning and at what level.
"The scoring this year is so different,"
Sellers said, "and we just don't really
know what they mean."
"Parents and taxpayers expect mea-
surement. We've got to measure, we've
got to find out who the best schools
are," Scott said at the Florida Press
Association awards banquet last week.
"We've got to have a good measure-
ment system, but we have to make sure
we don't have too much of it."
About half of Florida's ninth and 10th
graders failed the reading portion of
the new and more rigorous FCAT tests,
which has prompted school officials
statewide to call for scrapping the
controversial testing system.'
"Testing is just flat out of hand,"
S Sellers said. "The scoring this year is
so different, we really don't know what
they mean. The scores were so heavily


weighted, we don't believe they show
the real picture."
She blames the changes in FCAT
results on changes to the testing which
were implemented in December, well
after the school year's curriculum had
been set and standards based on last
year's tests were expected.
"Our schools are doing so much
more and better than the tests reflect,"
the board chairman says, "and there'is
just too much emphasis on these tests."
Lewis says the school system rec-
ognizes a need for "accountability,
stability and reliability" in the school's
measurements, but that sometimes
mandates resulted in "unintended
consequences."
He said the "unintended conse-
quences" include residual costs for
additional courses and classwork that
is not budgeted and that the school
system budget is already strained.
"We want accountability, but not
in this way," Sellers said. "These tests
can't and don't show everything the
state says they do."
Sellers and Lewis both agreed Polk
teachers are doing more and more.
"Our teachers have more training and
more technology," Sellers says, "and the
tests results are not showing the results
of their work or their students."
I Sellers, who is also a board mem-
ber of the Florida School Board
Association, says the association
passed a resolution at its summer ses-
sion calling on Scott and his education


administration "not to rely on these
tests as a measure of our success." She
also said the association hopes the
governor's staff will listen to the school
leaders when his office reviews the
existing testing systems.
Lewis adds local administrations are
"frustrated" by existing measures of
accountability.
"We know our schools are good,"
Sellers says. "We have kindergartners
who can read and our students are
progressing properly.
"We just need a better way of reflect-
ing what our children can do. These
tests just can't show everything. We
need alternative ways for account-
ability in our system. This is just not
working," she said.
In recent news reports, many schools


had their overall grades fall, but both
Lewis and Sellers say those reports
are bdsed on the mid-stream test-
ing changes and do not reflect lower
performances by either teachers or
students.
"It's the tests," Sellers said. "It's just
the tests."
Lewis added that the system is con-
stantly monitoring district-wide trends
to "see what's working and what needs
to be adjusted."
He added the test results can, how-
ever, give administrators "a baseline"
from which to work.
The FCAT test results are used
to determine whether children are
promoted and in secondary school,
are also used to determine whether
students can graduate.

Work on S.R. 60 begins


By BILL ROGERS
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET

Work has started this week on
more than $8 million in improve-
ments to State Road 60 just west of
Lake Wales.
The road project extends from
east of Alan Loop Road east approxi-
mately 4.1 miles to west of Peace
Creek and from Peace Creek east
approximately 4.7 miles to U.S. 27 in
Polk County.
The improvements include re-
moving asphalt and resurfacing
the roadway with new asphalt,
widening, concrete approaches for
existing bridges and CSX and Florida
Midland Railroad crossings, base
work, shoulder treatment, drainage
improvements, curb and gutters,
guardrail, bridge rail retrofits, side-
walks, new signage and pavement
markings and lighting adjustments.
Motorists can expect lane closures
and temporary detours for the proj-
ects. Lane closures may be in effect
during the day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.


and at night.
During the road work, access will
be maintained to businesses and
residences in locations where there
is more than one entrance. At least
one entrance will be maintained at
all times.
In a situation where there is only
one entrance, only half of that
entrance may be closed at a time.
Flagmen will be used to direct traffic
in those instances.
Ed Ponce, district roadway design
engineer, said during the open house
at the James P. Austin Community
Center, said making the improve-
ments was based on an assessment
called the Pavement Condition
Survey. Ponce said all roads are
graded to determine ride quality and
if there is rutting and cracking.
The Peace Creek to U.S. 27 project,
which will begin Monday, will cost
$5.2 million, while the Alan Loop Road
to Peace Creek segment will cost a
little more than $3 million.
APAC is the contractor for the
projects.

Frostproof's Dixie Youth Major All Stars hit the road last Friday afternoon, with their destination
of Brooksville, for this week's state playoffs. The team won a berth in the event with a win in
June over DeSoto in the District 7 championships.


Unfortunately for Frostproof, they dropped their state playoff opener, 12-1 to Bushnell, in action
on Saturday. The good news is, it was a double elimination event. They met Franklin County in
the second game and kept their title hopes alive with a 6-5 win. Their third game was scheduled
for late yesterday afternoon, past the deadline for The Frostproof News. Win or lose, however,
they have done us all proud.

AAA reported an increase in call
volume for roadside assistance during
recent Florida storms and warns motor-
ists to avoid driving through rising
waters during any heavy rainstorms this
hurricane season.
That means the time to respond has
increased.
A majority of calls during a heavy storm
can be avoided if drivers heed the advice
from local law enforcement and state
departments of transportation to stay
off roadways until conditions improve.
Motorists should always monitor local
news reports and listen to the advice of
their emergency management officials.
If a vehicle shuts down while in standing
water do.not try to restart it. Restarting
a vehicle in standing water can cause
more water to enter the engine and cost
thousands of dollars to repair.
"Although Tropical Storm Beryl didn't
cause a large spike in AAA's call volume,
we still had a lot of people out in the
storm," said Gerald Gutowski, Sr., vice
president for AAA Automotive Services,
The Auto Club Group. "However, the
week prior, during the severe storms in
South Florida, call volume spiked more
than 30 percent in areas impacted by
local flooding because people thought it
was safe to run their errands when they
should have parked their cars in their
driveways."'
As AAA prepares its emergency
response teams to respond to call
volume during the 2012 hurricane
season, it's critical to remind motorists
to avoid driving through standing water.
Motorists may not only be at risk for
losing control of their vehicles, they can
also cause severe damage, such as:


Flooding the engine
Warping brake rotors
Loss of power steering
Cause a short in the electrical
components
It's critical motorists know what to
expect when they call for emergency
roadside service during floods. AAA's
emergency response service vehicles are
designed to handle mechanical adjust-
ments, battery and starting service, flat
tires, vehicle lockout services, and can
safely drive through no more than one
foot of water. AAA's tow trucks can drive
through 18 inches of water in order to
extract a vehicle from standing water,
but anything deeper than that can risk
the safety of the AAA service techni-
cians and tow trucks. Motorists who are
at home or in a safe location will receive
service as soon as conditions allow.
"Floods can have a devastating
impact on some neighborhoods and we
can't get help to people with flooded
cars when there is a state of emergency
and the Department of Transportation
has implemented road closures," said
Gutowski.
At all times, the safety of everyone
on the roadways, including AAA's own
employees, is paramount, he said.
Service will return to normal when
state departments of transportation lift
road closures and AAA has been able to
respond to all emergency calls from law
enforcement in order to safely clear the
roadways from broken down vehicles.
AAA's busiest call volume usually occurs
on the first day following a major flood
when the sun is out and cars are acces-
sible to tow trucks. This is when most
motorists call for tow service.

Co-op Cash spurs first aid training


By DERRILL HOLLY
ELECTRIC Co-OP TODAY STAFF WRITER

An investment by consumer-mem-
bers of a Florida electric cooperative
into first aid training for young
people could help save lives in the
community for years to come.
Board members from Peace River
Electric Cooperative's Operation
Round Up charitable foundation
recently donated two automated
external defibrillator machines to an
Explorer post sponsored by the Polk
County Sheriff's Office.
"The Sheriff's Office sought a
grant of nearly $6,800 to buy one
defibrillator and offset the cost of
first aid training," said Mark Sellers,
the Wauchula-based co-op's com-
munications coordinator.
"The board felt so strongly about
the project's potential for saving
lives that they increased the grant by
$1,000 for an additional defibrillator."
These two defibrillators will be
used. to train up to 50 young cadets
how to use the technology to save
lives, Sellers said. "Needless to say,
the deputies are thrilled."


Deputies and other staffers work
with Explorer cadets, many of them
former Boy Scouts, who are at least
14 years old. Participants in the post
programs learn various law enforce-
ment and public safety skills.
"The Explorers learn about fire-
arm safety, how to direct traffic, de-
velop some crisis intervention skills
and other critical topics needed by
law enforcement," said Sellers. "The
Operation Round Up grant will be
used to teach them how to assess
patients, perform CPR and use the
AED devices. They will also learn
other life-saving techniques."
In recent years AEDs have become
familiar fixtures in many businesses
and institutions. The devices auto-
matically detect potentially deadly
heart rhythms and deliver an elec-
tric shock to assist in reestablishing
a normal heartbeat.
"Over time, dozens of young
people will learn more about life-
saving techniques," Sellers said.
"If they are ever called upon to use
those skills, they could wind up
giving someone in our community
another chance at life."

Bartow hospital gets a


new knee resurfacing tool


Bartow Regional Medical Center now
has MAKOplasty partial knee resurfac-
ing, a minimally invasive treatment
option for adults living with early to
mid-stage osteoarthritis that has not yet
progressed to all three compartments of
the knee.
MAKOplasty is less invasive than
traditional total knee surgery and is
performed using RIO, an advanced;
surgeon controlled robotic arm system.
Bartow Regional Medical Center is the
first to acquire this technology in the
county, it said.
MAKOplasty potentially has benefits
compared to total knee surgery such as
it has less pain, there is minimal hos-
pitalization, there is generally a more
rapid recovery, there is less implant
wear and loosening, a smaller scar and
provides better motion. "MAKOplasty
allows us to treat patients with knee


osteoarthritis at earlier stages and with
greater precision," said Dr. Stephen
Beissinger of Bartow Regional Medical
Center.
People can see and meet orthopedic
surgeons who are certified to perform
these procedures at an open house at
Bartow Regional Medical Center on
Thursday, July 19, from 5-7 p.m. For
information on the open house call
863-519-1442.
There are also seminars scheduled
at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 25 at the
Courtyard Marriott at Lakeside Village, at
11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7 at the Bartow
Regional Medical Center classroom,

UF targets known barriers to

preventing cervical cancer


The human papillomavirus vaccine
can protect against cervical cancer, yet
only one-fifth of adolescent girls on
Medicaid in Florida receive the vaccine,
even though it's free for them, University
of Florida researchers say.
Now, with the help of a $150,000 grant
from the Society of Adolescent Health
and Medicine, UF researchers have
launched a pilot project aimed at increas-
ing vaccination rates in girls. Led by
Stephanie Staras, Ph.D., the UF research-
ers will develop and test a multifaceted
approach to increase awareness about
the vaccine among girls and their parents,
and to prompt more doctors to offer it.
"In Florida, girls enrolled in Medicaid
are about half as likely as the general
population to protect themselves from
cervical cancer by getting the HPV
vaccine,"said Staras, an assistant profes-
sor in the UF College of Medicine depart-
ment of health outcomes and policy. "We
aim to decrease the vaccine inequalities
among adolescents enrolled in Florida
Medicaid and KidCare by addressing
what we found to be the biggest barriers
- provider recommendations, cost and
concerns about safety."
The study is one of 10 public health
demonstration projects the Society of
Adolescent Health and Medicine is fund-
ing through a grant from Merck & Co. Inc.,
the makers of Gardasil, a vaccine for the
human papillomavirus, or HPV which is
the main cause of cervical cancer.
The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention recommends that girls and
boys receive an HPV vaccine at age 11
or 12. The two vaccines approved by
the Food and Drug Administration for
protection against cervical cancer are
Gardasil and Cervarix, which is made by
GlaxoSmithKline. Both vaccines are given
as a series of three shots and protect


against some of the most common types
of HPV The CDC also recommends that
young women ages 13 to 26 get the vac-
cine if they did not receive it when they
were younger.
UF researchers have teamed with
five Gainesville health care providers to
complete the 18-month study, which
will focus on teens enrolled in Medicaid
and Florida KidCare, the state children's
health insurance program. Both Medicaid
and Florida KidCare provide the HPVvac-
cine at no cost to patients.
To increase the number of girls who
start an HPV vaccine series, the UF team
will test different ways of getting facts
about the vaccine to adolescents and their
parents. Postcards will be sent to parents
in an effort to educate them about cost
and safety. In addition, the researchers will
raise awareness about HPV and the vac-
cine among adolescents through a system
that invites teens to respond to health-re-
lated questions on a tablet computer while
they're waiting in their doctor's office.
The same device then prompts their
health care providers to discuss the HPV
vaccine and other resources during their
visit. These techniques will be tested
against standard practice, which varies
from doctor to doctor and often results in
missed opportunities to offer the vaccine
to patients, Staras said.
Typically, vaccines are offered to pa-
tients during routine child wellness visits.
But as children age into adolescence, the
frequency of such visits tends to decline,
with patients becoming more likely to
visit the doctor only when they are sick,
Staras said. Using the tablet computer
in these instances not only will help
educate the patient but also should help
remind physicians to offer it during visits
when they are typically not focused on
vaccines.

two years ago. We had never heard
of MSA. Information we got from the
Internet provided all of its symptoms
and a predicted longevity of seven to
10 years. He took Sinemet, medicine
for Parkinson's disease. It and other
medicines did not help. He went from a
healthy man to a cane, then to a walker
and then to a wheelchair and finally to
a hospital bed.
How prominent is this disease?
Where does it originate? It's devastat-
ing. G.M.
ANSWER: MSA, multiple system atro-
phy, is a degeneration of certain brain
centers from causes yet unknown. The
more common variety of MSA mim-
ics in many ways Parkinson's disease.
Patients have the muscular rigidity
and stiffness of Parkinson's disease.
They're bent forward at the waist.
Speech becomes a mumble. They walk
in a shuffle and are inclined to fall.
Standing up brings on dizziness and
fainting due to a drop in blood pressure
with a change of position.
The average age of onset is 54, and
longevity is predicted to be seven to 10

years. I can't explain why your husband
had such a rapid course. Perhaps it was
due to your husband's older age when
he came down with it. MSA affects
about three people in a population of
100,000.
The Parkinson's disease medicine
Sinemet is often tried, but no medicine
has had resounding success in control-
ling symptoms and extending life.
You're right. MSA is a devastating ill-
ness for the patient and for the family.
You and your family have my sincerest
sympathy.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have suf-
fered from major depression for most
of my adult life. I have tried nearly.
every antidepressant and mood-stabi-
lizer in various doses, but nothing has
helped for more than several months.

I recently asked my psychiatrist if I
could explore the option of electrocon-
vulsive therapy, but he dismissed it out
of hand as being something I could not
afford and being a treatment that lasts
for only two weeks.
Is this true? I would think the proce-
dure would have better success rates
and longer-lasting results. What are
your thoughts? B.B.
ANSWER: The doctor hasn't come
up with anything that has worked for
you. I don't understand his stance.
Unless you have a physical illness that
prohibits electroconvulsive (also called
electroshock) therapy, you appear to be
an ideal patient for such treatment. You
have had no success with medicines or
talk therapy. ECT gives good results that
last much longer than you were told.
The two names for ECT (EST) ought
to be changed; they evoke fear. In the
modern form of this treatment, no
observable convulsion takes place, and
the process is done quickly.
The doctor gives a treatment three
times a week for two to four weeks,
often as an outpatient. Improvement
frequently is seen after two or three
treatments, more rapidly than with any
other therapy. After mood has stabi-
lized, maintenance therapy is given at
intervals of one to eight weeks after the


,Shifty eyes aren't necessarily evidence of deception or worse


Your mom and pretty much ev-
eryone else always told you to look a
person in the eyes when you're talking
to them. Looking away, mom said,
suggested you were hiding something
or weren't being entirely forthright.
Howard Ehrlichman is a psychology
professor at Queens College in New
York who has studied eye movements
since the 1970s. Writing in the journal
Current Directions in Psychological
Science, he says shifty eyes aren't
necessarily evidence of shame, decep-
tion or worse. They might just indicate
you're thinking, looking inward to
extract some long-term memory.
Ehrlichman is specifically referring to
saccades quick, simultaneous move-
ments of both eyes in the same direction.
Eye contact is important for humans. It's a
primary method of unspoken communi-
cation. Some experts have speculated that
because it takes so much brain power to
use our eyes as communication senders
and receivers, we naturally and necessar-
ily shift them when we want to direct our
thoughts elsewhere. Other experts go a
step further and argue that the direction


WELL NEWS
Scott LaFee


of the eye movement correlates with what
part of the brain we're accessing.
Ehrlichman offers a somewhat
different explanation. He posits that
saccades are an evolutionary holdover.
Most animals survive by constantly
surveying their surrounding for food,
shelter or predators. The constant eye
movement is automatic and instinctive.
Modern humans don't have to do the
same anymore, but our brains are still
constantly assessing what's happen-
ing around us. The eyes simply mimic
this erratic, bouncy thought process,
without actually seeing anything.
To test his hypothesis, Ehrlichman had
volunteers think about words with their
eyes closed. Visual words such as "green"
evoked no eye movement. But other
words such as "pleasant" caused volun-
teers' eyes to jerk around while the brain
rifled through its banks for memories
and information related to "pleasant."


Body of knowledge
The average hand size, from wrist to
tip of middle finger, is 7.44 inches in
men, 6.77 inches in women. The aver-
age hand width is just over three inches
for males and just under three inches
for females.

initial therapy to prevent relapses, and
then less frequently. Explore this treat-
ment with a doctor who has experience
in ECT.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband
and I are in our mid-80s. We have a
daughter in her mid-50s, and she lives
with us. She has a serious problem. She
drinks 70-proof brandy, and easily can
drink a pint in one night. What is she
doing to her body and brain? She is a
wonderful daughter. L.K.
ANSWER: The daily limit for distilled
beverages and brandy is a distilled
beverage is 1.5 ounces of 80-proof
liquor a day. Her 70-proof brandy is
close to 80. She far exceeds the limit.
She places herself at high risk for liver
cirrhosis. Her brain suffers if she is not
taking in the suggested daily intake of
vitamins. She needs the help of a profes-
sional. Start with the family doctor, or
suggest Alcoholics Anonymous to her.

Will my Real Estate Sales
Professional be present
at the closing?
SWhenever possible your real estate agent
should be present with you at the closing,
however; some closings take place remotely
or by mail-away to either the buyer or seller.
With the bank owned properties, they usu-
ally arrange the closing with a title company
and the
David McLean trans-
action
is con-
iducted by
mail or a
Prime Plus Real Estate, Inc. remote
closer will
-assist.
Your real estate agent should be involved
in the process and assist with making sure
you receive the closing documents and have
time to review them prior to the closing
date.
What makes a sales professional effective?
Seeking and finding an effective real estate
agent is no different than seeking the most
qualified person in any field of service. You
need to find someone who has a reputa-
tion for being honest, qualified, and takes
pride in their work. It always shows when
someone is just doing the job for the money.


What's HOTin the marketplace?


This 2 Br. 2 Ba. home located in Carlsberg Estates, Lake Wales, recently sold for $73,000. It was listed by and sold by Prime Plus
Real Estate Inc.


Real Estate is a service, you will only get the
service you deserve, if the agent you pick has
your best interest at heart.
How do I find the real estate sales
professional who is right for me?
To find the right sales professional you
should start by looking for someone who is a
professional. Someone who does real estate


full-time and it's their primary job. They
may turn out to be the most efficient and
knowledgeable about the current real estate
market and how best to guide you through
the process of buying or selling a home. The
key to a successful real estate transaction
is "follow-up". Staying in touch and com-
munication is very important, if your realtor
is too busy to communicate with you, find
someone who will.
