BHG Elementary


grade miscalculated


By BRIAN ACKLEY
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
They're back to being above aver-
age, although folks in these parts
would have told you that all along.
Frostproof's Ben Hill-Griffin Jr.
Elementary was one of more than
200 schools statewide that had their
recent scores calculated incorrectly,
education officials indicated late last
week.
It had previously been announced
that BHG's grade for 2011-12 had
slipped to a C. In fact, it stayed a B
school, the state now says, much to
the delight of principal Patti McGill.
"Of course, we were thrilled at BHG
to get our grade changed back to a
B," McGill said Monday. "It shows
the hard work of our teachers and
students really paid off. In a time
where the cut scores were raised, we
met the challenge and I'm so proud
of the staff and students."
School grades in 40 of the state's
67 school districts were bumped up
after they were miscalculated under
a questionable evaluation system,
education officials say.
The agency said last Friday it
alerted district superintendents that
many of the grades should have
been higher because of an error in


calculating student learning gains.
The error raised further questions
about the state's system of evaluating
students and comes as the grading
system is under some of the sharp-
est criticism it has endured in the
years since former Gov. Jeb Bush first
pushed it into place.
More than 100 schools jumped
from a B to an A grade. Fifty-five
school grades changed from a C to a
B. Thirty-five school grades changed
from a D to a C, and seven school
grades changed from an F to a D.
Although pleased with the higher
grades, Polk Schools Superintendent
Dr. Sherrie Nickell had some reserva-
tions about this year's grading.
"While I am always pleased when
grades go in a positive direction,
I feel a bit unsettled with all the
changes this year," Nickell said.
"Nonetheless, we know the game has
changed, and we want to operate
successfully under the new:condi-
tions. I know the principals and the
schools are thrilled with the latest
developments."
Commissioner of Education Gerard
Robinson said he will look for ways
to improve the grade calculation
process.

much more quickly than they can right

City officials gave their blessing last
h week to a plan that will dramatically
increase the speed of searching online
thanks to an upgrade in the facility's

Internet broadband connection from

Sto benefit the current provider, according to a
memo from Hadden to the city council.
PRAYER1 5 Gladys Roberts, herself a former


librarian in Frostproof who today
servers as the coordinator of the Polk
County Library Cooperative, said the
upgrade is needed.
"It was fast at the time when we
signed the agreement, but it's not now,"
she said of the current upload capa-
bilities. "We've run into a lot of speed
issues, and Missy has been very patient
with us as we try to work through
those."
Roberts said the county looked at
options from Brighthouse and Comcast,
but settled on the latter.
"Comcast was very attractive to us
for this location. We can get you a 12
megabits per second connection which
is four times the speed that you have
now," she said.
Mayor Kay Hutzelman was pleased
with the news.

VIEWPOINT



County Commission, District 3


There are two Republican candidates running
for Polk County Commission, District 3. Because
there is no Democrat in the race, the winner of
the primary wins the race. Because of that, all
voters, regardless of party affiliation, are able to
vote in this primary race.
The race pits Tracy Garcia against incumbent
Ed Smith.
Coincidentally, both candidates used to be
mayor of Lake Alfred.
Smith, had a 28-year career in the Navy and
a 16-year-career working for the Polk County
School District. He has a Masters of Science
Degree from Old Dominion University.
Garcia is a project manager for a Winter Haven
engineering firm. She has a bachelor's degree
in business administration from Southern
Wesleyan University.
Smith has been a commissioner during a very
difficult time in our county's history. Dwindliig
tax revenues have caused our county leaders to
make some tough decisions.
Smith hasn't been afraid to tackle those tough
issues during his first term as a commissioner.
Both candidates say that creating jobs and


Our Recommendation
strengthening the economy. How does a county
commission do that? Both candidates say they
were in favor of the recent impact fee morato-
rium, citing the fact that some new businesses
broke ground after impact fees were waived.
We think this decision was made without any
real facts to back up that claim. We have no facts
that point to whether the businesses would have
come if the impact fees were still in place.
We hope the winner of this race takes a hard
look at impact fees and asks county officials
to base their decision to forgo tax revenue so
that another McDonald's can build a little less
expensively.
Garcia says that her experience on the Lake
Alfred commission and her short stint as mayor
of that city qualifies her to sit on the county
commission. She likes to say that she would also
be a more compassionate commissioner than
Smith.
Both of these folks are smart, capable people
who have proven themselves to care about their
communities and shown a willingness to work


Ed Smith


Tracy Garcia


hard.
However, when you compare their work,
education and public service experience we feel
that Ed Smith has the edge over Tracy Garcia
and that he deserves another term on the
commission.
-We hope Garcia, if she is not elected, thinks
about running again in four years. Because of
term limits, Smith will not be able to run again
and Garcia will still be a qualified candidate.
We recommend Ed Smith for Polk County
Commission, District 3.


Few things strike terror in the hearts
of the armed forces of the strongest
nation on earth as much as three words:
"Quadrennial Defense Review."
The concept sounds great: every four
years, the federal government takes
.a look at all sorts of military policies,
ranging from force structure to military
pay.
Every bureaucracy governmental,
,military, civilian, even religious can
benefit from a mandated review of the
assumptions on which it operates. That
is life as it should be.
In practice, such introspection too
often inspires a movement to fix things
that aren't broken, to meddle for the
sake of meddling, to trash time-hon-
ored traditions for the politically correct
cause du jour.
Such is the case with the recently
released Quadrennial Defense Review of
Military Compensation.
This QDR recommends that pay for
National Guard and Reserve forces be
modified to mirror pay for active duty
forces. At first blush, this appears to be
a no-brainer. Why shouldn't Guardsmen
and Reservists be paid the same as
active troops?
On even cursory inspection, however,
it becomes obvious that this is an
apples to pineapples comparison.
It sounds easy to say that Guardsmen
and Reservists "get two days pay for
every day of drill," and let it go at that.
The key to understanding this is that
the pay is indeed "for every day of drill,"
and that does not begin to cover the
unpaid time requirements and unre-
imbursed expenses incurred in a career
as a part-time soldier/member of the
militia.

I speak from experience.
I was in the active Army for two years,
and the Florida National Guard for
30. Both have a vital role in national
defense, and my comments are not
meant to disparage the service of active
duty service members. Like I said, I was
one for two years.
For starters, active duty troops (with
the dramatic exception of those in a
combat theater) work five days a week,
with two weekend days. That's 104 days
off a year.
Active forces, like other government
employees, get 10 federal holidays a
year. That makes 114 days off.
Military forces get 30 days of paid
leave a year. That makes 144 days off.
Guardsmen and Reservists typically
get one day off a year when in a duty
status, and that is the middle Saturday
of a two-week encampment. They are
typically released from duty at the end
of the day Friday, and must return to
duty on Sunday.
If a federal holiday occurs during an
encampment, it is a regular workday for
'Guardsmen and Reservists.
So in a typical schedule of 24
weekend drill days and 15 days of
annual training (what used to be

Letters to the editor


Quit blaming the president


I am writing because I am sick and
tired of hearing people blame our
President for the way the economy is
and for the job situations. The economy
and the jobless situation was in a mess
when he took office. It's not his fault. He
is doing the best he can with what he
has to work with. It's regrettable that the
Republicans are giving him such a hard
time.
The truth, the 'real' truth, is that tech-
nology and our seemingly 'insatiable'
taste for bigger and better things is the
real blame but then we have been at it
for over a hundred years or more.
Every time a new invention comes
out, or an improvement to one, hun-
dreds (perhaps thousands) of people
lose their jobs.
It seems the more we get, the more
we want. From Benjamin Franklin


discovering electricity to Thomas
Edison and the light bulb to Henry
Ford and the automobile to the Wright
Brother and flight to the Cotton Gun
in the south to radio and television to
Alexander Graham Bell and the tele-
phone to Bill Gates and the computer
and the list goes on and on.
There seems to be no slowing down
anytime soon. We are so obsessed with
trying to make our lives easier and sav-
ing time to enjoy the good life. We don't
stop to think about the real cost of our
appetite for more leisure jobs.
It doesn't matter who is in thepresi-
dent's seat. The situation will be the
same. We are advancing ourselves right
out ofjobs. Machines and technol-
ogy are taking their toll on the jobless

GRADES
FROM PAGE 1

Each year the state hands out
A-to-F grades that are used to
financially reward top schools and
sanction those that get failing marks.
The grades are based primarily on
student performance on a series of
high-stakes tests in reading, math,
writing and science. Part of the grade
is also based on whether students
demonstrated learning gains over
the previous year. This year's writing
scores were surprisingly low.
Robinson had warned earlier this
month that the school grades would
drop because of recent changes to
the state's grading system, but said
it didn't necessarily mean that the
schools aren't doing as well as they
were before.
Education officials said the error
came from the way they weighted
students' learning gains. The state
passed a rule last year saying that
students who scored at levels 1 and
2 on last year's FCAT and got a third
more points than was needed to be
considered to have made learning
gains on the FCAT this year, would
receive a weighted learning gains
score.
But the state failed to include stu-
dents who were at levels 1 or 2 last

First Presbyterian Church Pastor
Buzzy Elder said the idea was born
many months ago at a meeting for the
Frostproof Ministerial Association,
a consortium of about a dozen local
churches whose leaders meet once a
month from September to May.
"Probably a year ago we started talk-
ing about it," Elder recalled. "We said
how do we do it without stepping on
someone else's service?"
Elder, Joe Maddox of the Babson Park
Community Church and Ralph Waters
from the Care Center, who also is a
minister with Frostproof's Family Life
Church, will lead the July 29 service.

"The cooperative is upgrading no

year, but scored at higher levels this
year when calculating the weighted
points.
"School grades are important to
students, parents, teachers, princi-
pals, administrators and the com-
munity," Robinson said. "And, while
I am pleased that the continuous
review process has resulted in better
grades, we will continue to look for
ways to improve the grade calcula-
tion process." -
The department informs districts
of anticipated changes to initial
school grades as they are identified
throughout this phase of the process
to assist them in local planning
decisions pending the release of the
final school grades, which will occur
during the first week in September.
"The fact that eight percent of
school grades will increase not only
affirms the hard work of Florida's
students, teachers and district
leadership, it demonstrates the value
of the continuous review process," he
added. "The strength of our account-
ability system depends on the part-
nership between school districts and
the department, and these revisions
are a direct result of that process."
Robinson was a guest Monday of
the Tiger Bay Club in Bartow. (See
story, page 12.)

(The Associated Press contributed to
this report.)


Elder said. He said a former church he was
affiliated with used to do a "Psalm" sing
every fifth Sunday, and that Frostproof's
service will feature plenty of music.
"We have to show people that we
have a love for Christ. We're trying to
reach the unchurched," he said. "It's a
show of unity and a way to reach out.
Just show up, that's all we want."

Continuing education is a major
requirement of both active duty and
Guard and Reserve troops for retention
and promotion.
Active duty soldiers are sent to
schools in a paid status, as indeed they
should be. Guardsmen and Reservists
typically complete their educational
requirements through correspondence
schools and night classes, for which
they receive no pay.
In my case, I completed my branch
career course by correspondence and

all unpaid.
Each was a three-year curriculum.

a daily reality.

don't have that option. Guardsmen and

New Ag program fills crucial role for county


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY@LAKEWALESNEWS.COM

Although Polk County's interests
over the years have branched out to
development, tourism, and technology,
its agricultural roots run deep and wide.
Farmlands, citrus groves, ranching and
aquaculture still underlie the founda-
tion of Polk's economy, and now there
is a university program to support these
interests.
Warner University in Lake Wales will
offer a degree in Agricultural Studies,
officially starting in the Fall of 2013.
The school is taking applications for
the program now however. According
to Lauren Lewis, the program's director,
ag students will begin in the General
Studies program of Warner University
in preparation for course work in
Agricultural Studies which begin with
the sophomore year.
"As in any degree program, they have
math and English classes and such,
which they can begin in the Fall of
2012," Lewis said. The school is plan-
ning a pilot agriculture class in Spring
of 2013.
"We hope, by Dec. 1 of this year to
have an outline of courses that will be
offered as well as our faculty needs and
any facilities to be built for the pro-
gram," Lewis said.
"We want the courses to be taught
by industry professionals, so they will
probably be adjunct instructors," Lewis
said. This is the only four-year agricul-
ture program in Florida that covers such
a broad agricultural spectrum, Lewis
said. Students will be able to take elec-
tives in environmental science, animal
science, citrus, or a number of other
specialties, as well as being well-versed
in agri-business and marketing.
The department will have a very
hands-on approach, Lewis said, and
every year students will serve an intern-
ship, giving them opportunities to earn
experience in the field.
"I spoke to the Florida Future Farmers
of America convention two weeks ago,
attended by over 4,000 students, and
there was a huge interest in this pro-
gram," Lewis said.


According to statistics from the
county government website, Polk
County has the second largest amount
of farmland in the state with an estimat-
ed 626,634 acres. Polk remains the sixth
most productive agricultural county
in Florida. The $878 million citrus
industry employs approximately 8,000
people in Polk County. Polk ranked first
in the state for total citrus picked for
the 2003-04 season with an estimated
total of 42.2 million boxes harvested.
Polk also ranked first in the state in the
amount of commercial citrus groves
with approximately 95,050 acres (2004
estimate). In addition to citrus, Polk
was ranked third in the state in 2004, in
number of beef cattle with an estimated
105,000 head of beef and dairy cattle,
according to the Florida Agricultural
Statistics Service. Total receipts from
the sale of crops and livestock in Polk
County rose to $284.8 million in 2002
based upon a report released by the
Bureau of Economic Analysis at the U.S.
Department of Commerce.
.Warner Universiry is located in the
center of one of the most productive
agriculturalregions in the state. Over
200 acres of university-owned land are
also readily accessible for students to
study agriculture and conduct hands-
on learning projects. The H.E.A.R.T.
(Hunger, Education and Resources
Training) Institute, located on campus,
provides a unique training ground for
agricultural needs in a Third World
country.
Lewis, the new director, is a Polk
County native, having grown up in
Haines City, "So I have a lot of local
connections," she said. Lewis has an
undergraduate degree in Agricultural
Business and Economics from Auburn
University and a master's degree in
Agricultural Education from Texas A&M.
She has a longtime association with
the FFA as well.
The program was carefully researched
and vetted before launching. President
Greg Hall appointed a task force of
agricultural industry professionals,
board of trustees, and university staff
to explore its feasibility. Task Force
members included: Doris Gukich, Dawn

One of the first experts the task
force contacted was Commissioner
of Agriculture, Adam Putnam, who
encouraged Warner to move forward
with an Ag degree program. He was in-
terested in a program that would allow
students to develop a solid foundation
of knowledge and skills in the area of
"General Ag" studies, according to the
school's website.
"I'm excited about this new program.
It's a good opportunity for students
to get a four-year degree with a broad


base," Lewis saidin closing.
Note: On Dec. 1, afundraiser will be
held on Brama Island, an environmen-
tally protected portion of the Lightsey
ranch holdings. The island is noted
for having a wealth of wildlife species.
The fund-raiser will include tours of
the island, Lewis said, andfirmed-up
information about the program's course
offerings and specifics will be available
to visitors at that time.

COUNY REPORT


Four times the blessing


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT


In eight minutes on an early morning
on March 29, two Davenport women's
lives were changed forever. On that
day, their two-year quest for a baby was
over and they were the proud parents
of not one, not two, not three, but four
babies.
However, it was touch and go during
the pregnancy and delivery. The qua-
druplets, carried by Carrie Bell, were
delivered via Caesarian section,
more than three months early. They
each weighed just over one pound.
Sophia Grace was the biggest at one
pound, 14 ounces, with Emily Hope
tipping the scales at one pound, four
ounces. The others, Noah Robert the
only boy and Olivia Faith, weighed
in between the range of their sisters,
said Jenn Klawiter, Bell's domestic
partner.
The same-sex couple's odyssey to
parenthood started after they met
about eight years ago; they committed
to each other in 2006 and got married
in Washington last year. Florida does
not recognize same sex marriages.
"We started talking about having
a baby almost two years ago," said
Bell. "Since I am younger than Jenn,
we decided I should be the one to get
pregnant."
She said she took fertility drugs to
help the process and after several tries,
artificial insemination, too.
"Boy, did it," said Klawiter.
The couple learned of their impend-
ing parenthood as they were complet-
ing their enrollment in the county's
foster care program.
"We found out we were pregnant on
the day of the foster care home visit,"
Bell said.
"She took about four pregnancy tests
that day," Klawiter says, and then, "We
had to go to the doctor to make really
sure."
The pair said they knew the potential
for multiple births was a possibility.
"But we just wanted a baby and
would be happy with whatever God


gave us," said Bell, who then exclaimed,
"Of course, we didn't know He would
give us four."
Bell continued her teaching job at
Horizons Elementary School until
January when she was put on full
bed rest at Winnie Palmer Hospital in
Orlando. Klawiter, a labor manager at
Disney, says the entire pregnancy was a
series of highs and lows.
"We were so excited and so scared,
too," she said. 'And it was that way the
whole time. It's still that way."
While Bell, 35, has fully recovered
from the surgery, she says it has still
been a strain.
"It was so hard because the babies
had to be in intensive care and they
were so tiny," said Bell. "It was scary
at first and I couldn't even hold them.
Jenn had to do that."
The babies have steadily improved
and two, Sophia and Noah, are already
at home, even though Noah still needs
oxygen. Both weigh more than six
pounds now.
"That's what they should have
weighed if they had been full term,"
Klawiter said.
Bell adds that the babies were all in
"fairly good health" when they were
born, but like most extremely prema-
ture infants,"had trouble breathing"
despite special injections she took
while carrying the quads.
All are doing well considering how
early they were born, agreed the two
women. The babies had to be able to
maintain their body weight, suckle, swal-
low and breathe on their own before they
could or can be released. Both moms
expect theother two infants to leave the
hospital before the end of July.
But getting the babies healthy and
home isn't the couple's only worry.
Financially, they are in a crunch.
"We were a two-income family
that lived paycheck to paycheck like
everyone else, and suddenly, I can't
work," said Bell. "We hadn't expected
that I'd have to quit working so soon
and that I can't go back to work for at
least a year."
They've tried to get some help with a

vehicle that will hold four infant seats,
but have not had any luck. They even
applied to gay advocate and talk-show
host Ellen DeGeneres for a minivan,
but failed. Local car dealers have also
rebuffed their requests.
"But we have faith," Klawiter says.
"We prayed for a baby and we got four.
The Lord hears our prayers," she said,
holding Sophia in her arms, "and here's
the proof."
The couple's mothers live nearby
and will be pitching in when all four
babies come home, plus they have had
volunteers from the Community of
Faith Church to which they belong.
In the interim, adjusting to the
babies at home one at a time has given
them a chance to try to set schedules
and establish routines, they said. Bell
spends part of her day expressing
milk for the babies at home and some
that is delivered to the two still in the
hospital. Doctors told the mothers
that breast milk was crucial to the
babies' health, so that routine was
established before Bell was released
from the hospital.
"They had supplemental breast milk
from donor mothers at first, but now
they get mine mixed with formula,"
she said. "Breast milk is life-saving for
preemies," Bell explains, "even if they
have to get it through tubes until they
can take the bottles."
While it appears the couple is adapt-
ing to the huge change in their lives,
they know there are hurdles they have
yet to face. Legally, the babies are only

their quadruplets, Sophia and Noah, at their
Davenport home.
Bell's since only her name could be on
the babies' birth certificates.
"I know that, legally, I'm nobody
here," the 43-year-old Klawiter says.
"But the people atWinnie Palmer have
never questioned my-parenthood.
"We have trust in our relationship
and we both know these are my chil-
dren as much as hers," she continued.
"We don't care what the rest of the :
world thinks. I've been there and will,
always be there."
Bell says that while she was recov-
ering from the Caesarian, Klawiter
stepped in and was there for the ba-
bies. She added that the staff at Winnie
Palmer Hospital was great.
"They always treated Jenn like the
parent she is," said Bell.
The couple realizes there may be
issues as the children grow up with two
mothers.
"We know they may face things as
they grow up, but we're ready for that.
We have absolute faith in each other
and in the power of prayer," said Bell.
"Those babies are living proof of that.
We have faith and trust that we'll
be able to handle it and bring these
babies up in the loving home we've
established."
"We know it won't always be easy, for
us or for them," said Klawiter.-"But with
love, we can get through it. We've got
through this, we can do anything."

READ Lakeland


spreads literacy -


On Saturday, July 14, a typical
Florida summer day of hot and humid
weather, First Baptist Church of Eaton
Park hosted the Red, White and Blue
Community Event along with a large
number of volunteers.
There was something for everyone
who attended. Participants could find
many community organizations with
pamphlets regarding their services
set up in the fellowship hall. Children
enjoyed the inflatables like the popular
Bouncy Castle. A lunch of hamburgers
and hot dogs was provided for those
people who had registered for the
event.
READ Lakeland joined the group
of volunteers and provided and dis-
tributed more than 150 free books to
children. The children were allowed to
choose books to take home for creating
or adding to their own personal library.
One boy, getting ready to enter fifth


grade, not only chose some of his
favorite authors but also chose books
for his sister who was unable to attend
the event.
"My sister will be starting kindergarten
this year, and I want her to enjoy reading.
She'll love these books," he said.
Parents and grandparents were given
a booklet Grow a Good Reader that
reviewed tips to use when reading with
children. Examples of some of these
tips included "Watch over their child to
see how he/she reads and talks about
what has been read. Help the children
to make connections between places
he/she may go and things children do
with the books read."
Dale Terrell, an administrative
assistant at Crystal Lake Middle
School, assisted Diane DeOropeza,
program director, and Lynda
Wolverton, president of READ
Lakeland. He helped the children locate

specific books based on their personal
interests.
Most of the book selections were
based on nonfiction content similar
to what is found on the state's Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test such
as nature, social studies, sports, or
science.


Having grown up in the Eaton Park
neighborhood and knowing that
many in the community have sig-
nificant socio-economic challenges,
he encouraged children to develop
a love of reading as a means to excel
in academic work they encounter in
school settings.

Despite C grade, school officials also see positives


By PEGGY KEHOE
PKEHOE@POLcKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
While still smarting from a district
grade of-C this year, Polk Public Schools
administrators are encouraged by other
results and are looking ahead to im-
prove that standing.
"We are certainly not satisfied with a
district grade of C, but we also realize it
is based on a single measure within the
state's accountability system that has
undergone significant changes this year,"
David Lewis, associate superintendent of
learning, said. "However, we are encour-
aged by the positive results we are seeing
in other key areas that we believe will
lead to improvement in the future."
District grades are based on Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test results


and were released
this month by the
state Department
of Education.
Polk had a C last
year, as well, but
had Bs in 2010,
2009 and 2008,
rising from a C in
2007. .
State standards
were raised this
year with a more Sherrie Nickell
rigorous FCAT
exam and new
grading levels.
"While a district grade of C is cer-
tainly not where we wish to stay, it
appears as though many school districts
also received that grade," Polk Schools


Superintendent Sherrie Nickell said in
an email. "We knew that school grades
would likely drop as the bar has been
raised. The game has changed, and
we must play by the new rules. We
are working hard to meet the higher
expectations. We're on it."
Nickell and the School Board had a
special meeting Wednesday morning
with consultant Tom Freijo to plan the
agenda for their strategic planning
meeting on Aug. 6.
At the meeting, board members and
the superintendent reviewed a first-year
report, based on goals set last year,
compiled byWilma Ferrer, senior direc-
tor of assessment, accountability and
evaluation.
The report noted that Hillsborough,
Osceola, Pasco and Pinellas also were


C districts this year. Of the 68 districts
(including Florida Virtual School) Polk
ranked 58th in reading 3+ and 60 in
math 3+, but in serving the lowest 25
percent of readers, Polk ranked 47, and
in math, 43, while neighboring counties
were below Polk County.
Nickell said this is a "big point" that
Polk is in the 40s with the lowest stu-
dents, better than Hillsborough County.
In reading learning gains Polk ranked
50 out of 68 districts, while it was num-
ber 58 last year. In math learning gains
Polk rose from 63 of 68 to 53.
While not happy being in the 50s,
"that's movement in the right direction,"
Nickell said.
Late last week, the state revised
grades for 14 district schools, but that
did not change the overall C grade.

Former Warner employee faces child porn charges


STAFF REPORT

A former Warner University em-
ployee Clinton Duane Pancake, 37, was
charged by the United States Attorney's
Office with receipt, distribution, and.
transportation of child pornography.
If convicted on allcounts, the.
Riverview resident could face a manda-
tory minimum sentence of five years in
federal prison and a maximum penalty
of 40 years.
The complaint alleges that Pancake
distributed 14 images of child pornogra-
phy over the Internet to an undercover,


agent in March, and also alleges that'
Pancake admitted to downloading child
pornography over the Internet, viewing
it on his computer, and deleting it.
According to Dr. Gregoiry Hall,
president of Warner University, Clinton
Duane Pancake did work for the uni-.
versity in their student life department,
planning events for students, including
various clubs and activities.
"He was released the first week in
June for issues that were unrelated to
the charges," said Hall, adding that
Warner University did not know about
any of the allegations at the time.
'"We are working with the FBI and


their investigation. We are quite confi-
dent that anything alleged happened
apart from the institution ... what we
know at this point, we know of no rea -
son to believe that anything happened
on the campus at Warner."
A criminal complaint is only a formal
charge that a defendant has committed
a violation of the federal criminal laws,
and every defendant is presumed in-
nocent unless, and until, proven guilty.
This case was investigated by the
Federal Bureau of Investigation and the
Polk County Sheriff's Office.
It is another case brought as part of
Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide,


Federal citrus greening bill clears major


A national effort to help battle some
of the biggest threats to.America's
citrus industry cleared a key hurdle in
the U.S. Senate last week.
The Senate Finance Committee'
passed the legislation, by U.S. Sen.
Bill Nelson, D-Fla., that establishes a
trust fund dedicated to finding cures

to the industry.
The money would be primarily
used for research and development.
on citrus greening, a disease that:
is threatening the entire U.S. citrus
market and the thousands of jobs it
supports. The disease has hit crops


in Florida, Louisiana, California,
South Carolina, Texas and Georgia.
The trust fund established by the
legislation would be financed by
tariffs foreign producers already
pay to import citrus into the United
States. The money currently goes
into the General Treasury, but under
the legislation a portion of it would
be put into the trust fund and dedi-
cated specifically for research and
development on diseases and pests
that threaten the citrus industry.
"If we don't stop this now, we'll
end up paying five bucks for.an
orange and it'll be one imported


from someplace else," said Nelson.
According to a study earlier this
year by the University of Florida, cit-
rus greening has already cost Florida
approximately $3.63 billion in lost
revenues and 6,611 jobs since 2006.
The first outbreak of greening in
Florida was confirmed in 2005. Two

Cool reception greets education commissioner at Tiger Bay


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

If judging by the questions posed
Florida Department of Education
Commissioner Gerard Robinson at
Monday's July Tiger Bay luncheon is
. any sort of barometer, there appears to
be an undercurrent of dissatisfaction.
Although the monthly gathering got
off to an amiable beginning, as usual,
thanks to moderator S.L. Frisbie, it did
not last long once Robinson made his
10-minute presentation before taking
questions.
"When I enrolled in kindergarten, the
first two words we learned to spell were
dog and cat," said Frisbie. "I under-
stand that today, the first two words
kids learn are 'doggone' and 'FCAT."'
As expected, his remarks draw gales of
laughter.
Robinson sequed that with his rendi-
tion, but his words were of a serious,
somber note.
"If you were a kindergarten student
today, the two new words would be
'good' and'jobs,'" he said. With that,
Robinson gave examples, quite often
using the two.words to compliment a
student as he/she progressed through
school, concluding with the necessity
of getting a good job depends upon
getting a good education.
' Florida, he would later say, is in a
unique position. In the next 10 years it
will succeed NewYork as the third larg-
est state in population. He spoke of the
demographics. Currently, 17 percent of
Floridians are 55-years-old and older.
In the years to come, that population
will be more than 50 percent, with the
next age bracket teens and young adult.
"We're going to need more people
involved in healthcare," he said. That
is a good thing, he added, as it is a
rewarding, well-paying career choice.
Robinson also introduced three new
"R" words: Revenue, research and
results.
Despite several further facts and bits
of information, it did not appear his
audience, which was composed of a
large number of those in the education
field, appeared convinced, beginning
with the very first question posed. It
challenged Robinson, demanding how
can people trust the FCAT grading
system when it keeps changing. He
said there were plenty of reasons to


continue trusting FCAT. For starters, he
said, over the last several years, FCAT
scores have always been adjusted fol-
lowing initial results.
"The question perhaps should be,
how can we trust a system that changes
all the time," he said. He challenged
his audience, rhetorically asking how
they can account for the advances
made by black and Hispanic students.
Continuing, Robinson said that of all
the industrialized nations of the world,
the U.S. ranks 25th. However, in the
U.S., Florida ranks No. 2, behind New
Jersey. It is, he said a remarkable leap
from 1999 to 2011.
When the questioning turned to
vocational education, he pointed to
his father who was a skilled laborer at
Lockheed (before it became Lockheed
Martin), an aeronautics firm. As
skilled as his father, now retired, was,
he would not be able to get a job at
Lockheed Martin.
"Eighty percent won't require college,
but will definitely, need post-secondary
education," said Robinson. In years
past, Vo-Tech used to mean "those
kids," the one who were not deemed
college material, or expected to suc-
ceed. That is no longer, there is not
the stigma there formally was, part of
the reason these schools have been
rebranded as Career and Technical
Training institutes.
"I know we need skilled labor," he
said.
Other questions asked whether he
supported school vouchers (he does);
whether the DOE should be abolished
(no); school uniforms (local issue);
would virtual schools put traditional
schools out of business (it is a tool to
be embraced); should his position be
an elected or appointed one (that is for
the legislators and populace to decide).
One question he disagreed with
asked if he felt there should be some
way of grading parents; and the
questioner made it a point to declare
he/she was not Rep. Kelli Stargel, who
had earlier been present but had left
to honor another commitment. That
last comments filled the room with
merriment.
Responding, Robinson made it a
point declaring he "doesn't buy that
parents don't care about their children's
education." The real matter was
' "How we encourage parents to get

involved is important," he said.
To do that required flexibility and
imagination, he said, and gave an
example how in Tampa a program
that proved successful with fathers
was based on principles expounded
upon in a book by Tony Dungy, retired
Super Bowl winning coach for the
Indianapolis Colts, and prior to that.
the head coach of the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers.
Along the same line, another ques-
tion asked Robinson what he believed
is the most significant factor influenc-
ing student success in school. His an-
swers were teachers, level of education
of the mothers and socio-economic
factors.
In closing, when asked what he
would like his legacy to be, Robinson
reeled off three::
That the Florida Department of
Education instituted changes to ac-
countability that didn't exist before.
That more students should finish
their education steeped in science and
language.
That he was able to bridge the gap
between college, business and the paid
workforce. What he would like to see
instituted, would be for businesses to
endow chairs in high school, similar in

"It's a grind,"he said.
There are eight indicators that his

include: Economic expansion, con-
sumer spending, employment growth,
core inflation, mortgage delinquencies,

According to Cambias, the economic

year calls for modest positive growth,
the GDP to grow 2 percent year over

expected to fall very slowly.

One lane east is closed on State Road 60 as construction on that road is under way. The construc-
tion will be a lot busier in the coming weeks.


S.R. 60 to get busy


By CATHY PALMER
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
By the last week of July, some 8.8 miles
of State Road 60 between Bartow and Lake
Wales will be under construction, according
to Florida Department of transportation
spokesman DarrenAlfonso.
Divided into two projects, the work
is expected to cost about $8.8 million
and should take about seven months
to complete. The westernmost project
stretches 4.1 miles from Alan Loop Road
to just west of Peace Creek, Alfonso
said, with the other segment from Peace
Creek to U.S. Highway 27 in Lake Wales.
The western 4.1 mile project calls for
resurfacing, improvements to drainage,
shoulder work and updated signage,
Alfonso explained, adding the work is
being performed by Lane Construction
of Mulberry. Lane has 160 days to
complete the work. Paving is expected
to begin the week of July 29, he added.
"Motorists can expect nighttime lane


closures as the paving work gets under
way," he said.
The eastern 4.7 mile project is under
contract to Apac Southeast
of Winter Haven, which started
preliminary work on July 16. The
$5.3 million job includes not only
repaving, signing and drainage work,
but also the replacement of concrete
approaches to two railroad crossings,
Alfonso said.
As with the other project, a large
portion of the work will be performed
at night, but, Alfonso added that
motorists should be cautious when
traveling through that area because
there will be lane closures and.traffic
shifts possible. There will be major
traffic shifts in August and September
for the reconstruction of the railroad
approaches, according to the depart-
ment spokesman.
"We just want everyone to be cau-
tious when driving that stretch and to
be mindful of the signs," he added.

PSC to launch criminal


justice degree program


Polk State College got unanimous
approval from the State Board of
Education to offer a bachelor of science
degree in Criminal Justice and will now
move forward to launch the program in
the fall.
"We are thrilled with today's decision
by the State Board of Education. This is
one more example of the extraordinary
relationship our College has with the
region we serve," said Polk State College
President Eileen Holden. "We developed
this program in response to local needs,
and we designed it with our partners
in the community and the graduates
will make a huge impact right here in
Polk."
According to Holden, the bachelor of
science degree in Criminal Justice will
extend the educational pipeline that
also includes the College's Associate in
Science in Criminal Justice Technology
and a criminal justice program at Polk
State Chain of Lakes Collegiate High
School.
It willbe open to anyone with an
associate degree, or the equivalent,
regardless of whether they previously
studied Criminal Justice; students must
also have a 2.0 grade-point average.
Development of the new degree
involved months of research and
intensive collaboration with area law
enforcement agencies.
The College also surveyed its students
and local law enforcement employees
to gauge the need for the new degree.
In words directed to the State Board
of Education, Polk County Sheriff Grady
Judd offered his personal perspective on
why the degree is needed and why
Polk State is the ideal local institution to
offer it.
"My organization and many other law
enforcement organizations throughout
Polk County have a continuous need
for a highly trained, local workforce.
Higher education makes a workforce
more prepared, by providing the tools,
resources, and knowledge to be great
leaders," Judd said.
"Polk State's proposed bachelor's
degree provides us with the opportunity
to train and hire the very best and to
do so locally at a reasonable cost. I
take my role as a steward of tax dollars
very seriously, and the price-point and
value I know to expect from Polk State is
exactly what our region demands."
Polk State College, both in terms of
its associate's and bachelor's degrees, is
Polk County's most affordable higher-
education option.
Polk State's addition of the Criminal
Justice degree is in line with an estab-
lished, nationwide trend of law enforce-
ment agencies preferring higher levels


of educational attainment.
"Since the Hoover Administration in
1930, there have been seven presiden-
tial commissions whose conclusion
was that officers should have four-year
degrees," said John Sullivan, execu-
tive liaison to Homeland Security for
the Palm Beach Sheriff's Office, who
has a doctorate in Organizational
Management and who has studied
the effects of higher education in law
Enforcement.
An early-2000s study by the
International Association of Chiefs
of Police, using data from Florida's
Criminal Justice Standards and Training
Commission, found that those with
bachelor's degrees were less likely to
have been involved in disciplinary
actions.
Specifically, the study found, those
with high school diplomas, or 58
percent of officers, were the subject of
75 percent of disciplinary actions; those;
with associate degrees, or 16 percent
of officers, accounted for 12 percent of
disciplinary actions; while those with
bachelor's degrees, or 24 percent of
officers, were the subject of just
11 percent of all disciplinary actions.
Four-year degrees are also increas-
ingly becoming a requirement for those
looking to climb the ranks of law en-
forcement both civilian and sworn.
"In Polk County, the vast majority of
law enforcement agencies are moving
to bachelor's degrees in both civilian
and sworn ranks for promotion," said
Sgt. Christen Shea, coordinator of the
College's Criminal Justice program.


Pinky Gravley, longtime residential and commercial
painting contractor from Frostproof, takes a minute
to chat as his family paints the interior of the Circle
of Friends building on Stuart Avenue in Lake Wales.
Gravley's company donated the paint work, saying they
wanted to do something for the Circle.

60 years of history in one building


NASCAR Hall


of


Fame can


bring


back memories


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
While some of us are still waiting
for the dust to settle after this sum-
mer's NASCAR race at Daytona, many
hard-core stock car racing fans can
relive that race and races that were held
nationwide over the last 60 years in the
recently opened NASCAR Hall of Fame
in Charlotte, N.C.
On a recent visit to the Queen
City, a trip to the uptown Hall of
Fame brought back memories of races
past and legends that are burned into
the hearts of race fans across
the country.
The NASCAR shrine is right in the
heart of Charlotte and features a plaza
for induction ceremonies, a theater
to relive the races, a great hall with
rotating displays, a "Glory Road" where
visitors can actually try to walk on
Daytona's 18-degree banking grade,


stand awed in the Hall of Honor where
racing legends are revered and join
a make-believe pit crew to fill up gas
tanks and change tires.
It's all sanctioned by the famous
racing overlord NASCAR and is trying
to cash in on one of the nation's largest
spectator sports.
The 150,000 square feet of racing
idolatry has tributes to NASCAR's
founding father Bill France as well as
great racing icons like Richard Petty,
Cale Yarborough, Junior Johnson ... and
the list goes on.
The entryway into the interactive
museum/theme park is dotted with
race cars dating from the 1950s through
today, including "The Intimidator,"
Dale Earnhart's iconic No. 3 black
race car, and gives a brief history of
dozens of racetracks across the nation,
starting with Daytona's world-famous

Glory Road shows the extent of banking on famous stock car racing tracks.


Famous race cars line Glory Road at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte.


HISTORY
FROM PAGE 19
beach races in the 1950s and climaxing
with the Talladega track in Alabama.
But it isn't just a series of monuments
to the late greats, it is chock full of
hands-on stuff for young and old alike.
There's a place where youngsters get
a feel for changing a tire and it's easy
enough for a 6-year-old girl to try her
hand. A grown woman can take a turn
lifting a gas tank to slop high-test into
a car in a high-pressure, 13-second pit
stop.
But even though the history is


amazing to a semi-interested viewer,,
the driving simulators are the star of
the Charlotte show.
There's a track with half-a-dozen
race cars and a line of eager Earnhart
wannabes, but one must qualify on
another simulator before getting
behind the wheel.
Five stations with steering wheels,
brake and gas pedals and ubiquitous
gear shifts face the would-be drivers.
On signal, the drivers have to get their
cars (video-wise) on the track and
complete a number of circuits without
crashing before they can move on to
the track.
Some would-be drivers found they
couldn't make the cut and turned away


dejectedly, knowing their winner's
circle dreams were dashed against the
simulated wall.
The multi-level museum/hall
of fame/game place is as skillfully
designed as a sleek race car. It's a maze
of acrylic, steel and bright colors,
just like your favorite race track. The
exhibits are sprinkled throughout -
from Richard Petty's signature cowboy
hat to Jeff Gordon's racing suit and
trophies discolored with age and let-
tered with names most of today's race
fans don't recognize.
But the highlights are the hands-on
displays. One can sit in a specially
designed race car seat, see how cars
are ruled eligible for today's races,


walk through a semitrailer used to
haul today's multi-million dollar race
cars and even get your picture taken
with the track of your choice in the
background.-
It's a high-tech homage to the sport.
And it isn't cheap.
It costs about $20 for adults, $17.50
for seniors and military personnel,
and $12.50 for children.
Surprisingly, it isn't even run by
NASCAR. It's part of the Charlotte
Regional Visitors Authority and is
licensed by the racing authority. But to
the visitor, it's kind of like a race. It's
colorful, it's almost gaudy, it's loud and
most of all, it's electric fun and well
worth a trip.

FEELING ,.



Bartow hospital first in Polk to offer MAKOplasty
A minimally invasive procedure for,
early to mid-stage osteoarthritis may
provide quicker recovery and more "
natural feeling knee post-surgery, doc-
tors at Bartow Regionral Medical Center ,


say.
The hospital is the first in Polk
County to offer MAKOplasty partial
knee resurfacing, a treatment option
for adults whose osteoarthritis has not
yet progressed to all three compart-
ments of the knee. MAKOplasty is less
invasive than traditional total knee
surgery and is performed using RIO@,
a highly advanced, surgeon controlled
robotic arm system, they said.
Doctors list the benefits of
MAKOplasty compared to total knee
surgery. These benefits include re-
duced pain, minimal hospitalization,
more rapid recovery, less implant
wear and loosening, smaller scar, and
better motion and a more natural
feeling knee.
"MAKOplasty allows us to treat
patients with knee osteoarthritis at
earlier stages and with greater preci-
sion, Dr. Stephen Beissinger of BRMC
said. "Because it is less invasive and
preserves more of the patient's natural
knee, the goal is for patients to have.
relief from their pain, gain back their
knee motion, and return to their daily
activities."
Through its innovative use of tech-
nology, MAKOplasty takes partial knee
resurfacing to a new level of precision,
he added.
The RIO system enables the surgeon
to complete a patient specific pre-
surgical plan that details the technique
for bone preparation and customized
implant positioning using a CT scan of
the patient's own knee.
During the procedure, the system
creates a three-dimensional, virtual
,view of the patient's bone surface
and correlates the image to the
pre-programmed surgical plan. As
the surgeon uses the robotic arm, its
tactile, auditory and visual feedback
limits the bone preparation to the
diseased areas and provides for real
time adjustments and more optimal
implant positioning and placement
for each individual patient.
"Precision is key in planning and
performing partial knee surgeries,"
said Dr. J.C. Alvarez, also of BRMC.
"For a good outcome you need to align
and position the implants just right.
Precision in surgery, and in the pre-
operative planning process, is what
RIO can deliver, for each individual
patient."
Early intervention is important as OA
is the most common form of arthritis
and a leading cause of disability
worldwide, according to the American
Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
Four seminars led by certified
orthopaedic surgeons will be held:
Wednesday, July 25, 5:30 p.m.,

Using the robotic arm, a doctor will use the
MAKOplasty machine to work on the knee(s)
of a patient who is in either the beginning or
mid-stage of osteoarthritis. Bartow Regional
Medical Center is the first in the county to have
MAKOplasty.

Dry macular degeneration usually progresses slowly


DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am 72.
Recently my eye doctor told me I have
the start of age-related macular degen-
eration. At first she said I had the eyes'
of a 60-year-old, until she took another
look. She recommended vitamins and
sunglasses that give ultraviolet protec-
tion. I do not want to lose my sight. Is
there any more I can do? -V.D.-
ANSWER: Macular degeneration
comes in two varieties, wet and dry.
The dry variety accounts for 80 percent
to 90 percent of cases. It usually pro-
gresses very slowly. You must have very
minor changes the doctor had to take
a second look to see them. Wet macular
degeneration can advance rapidly.
Doctors have more drugs for the wet
version than they do for the dry one.
The macula is a small circle of cells in
the middle of the retina at the back of
the eye. It's responsible for fine vision,
the kind needed to read a newspaper,
watch television and drive. Even when
macular vision has gone, vision off to
the sides remains.
In 2001, the results of AREDS-1 (age-
related eye disease study) were pub-
lished. It promoted the use of vitamin
C, vitamin E, beta carotene (a form of
vitamin A), zinc and copper toslow


the progression of moderate macular
degeneration to a more advanced form.
This combination is found in drug-
stores throughout North America.
In 2013, the AREDS-2 study is sched-
uled for publication. Changes have
been made in the vitamin and mineral
composition of the vitamin-mineral
pill, and it now includes omega-3 fatty
acids, lutein and zeaxanthin in the mix.
They're supposed to preserve macular
integrity.
If you want to jump the gun on the
proposed new formulation, Occuvite
PresserVision with lutein and zea-
xanthin is available in drugstores.
Sunglasses that protect against ultra-
violet rays are a sensible practice.


The booklet.on macular degenera-
tion explains this process in greater
detail. To obtain a copy, write: Dr.
Donohue No. 701, Box 536475,
Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a
check or money order (no cash) for
$4.75 U.S./$6 Can. vith the recipient's
printed name and address. Please allow
four weeks for delivery.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My wife gives
me a hard time about drinking Diet
Coke. She says it's not good for me
because of the carbonation and other
ingredients. She says anything that
cleans a toilet can't be good for your
stomach. I am 72. I started drink-
ing Diet Coke less than a year ago. I
normally drink one a day. Do you feel
this is harmful? J.E.
ANSWER: Tell your wife that if she
could obtain a cup of stomach acid and
digestive juices and put a nail in the mix,
it would dissolve the nail in short order. If
the stomach can tolerate acid and diges-
tive enzymes, it can tolerate Coke.
Diet Coke has no sugar. That's a big
plus for it. It should not foster weight
gain. That has been disputed, but I
find that weight gain from drinking
Diet Coke hard to believe. It's also been
said that it increases strokes and heart


attacks. Authors of that study maintain
that there might be an association.
They don't say it causes them. Another
inscrutable suggestion. Readers, please
don't write to me about aspartame, the
artificial sweetener in these soft drinks.
It's been found safe by many regulatory
agencies throughout the world. I can't
believe that a Diet Coke a day harms
health.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Every couple
of months, someone writes to you
about a chronic cough that defiesltreat-
ment. Please read the attached article
from a medical journal. I had a cough
for 25 years. Amitriptyline broke that
cycle, and I have been free of cough for
four years. G.J.
ANSWER: According to the article
from a reputable medical journal, a
chronic cough, resistant to all medi-
cines, is sometimes due to damage to
nerves to the throat and larynx (voice-
box). I have never heard this discussed.
The dose of amitriptyline is low, 10 mil-
ligrams at bedtime. The article is from
the journal Otolaryngology Head
and Neck Surgery, by Robert W Bastain,
M.D. et al, Volume 135, No.1, July2006.
Chronic coughers might want to men-
tion it to their doctors. Thanks, G.J


Researchers develop app for monitoring skin changes


More than two million Americans are
diagnosed with skin cancer each year,
with roughly 50,000 of them discovering
they have melanoma, the most serious
form of the disease.
Unlike many forms of caficer,
however, it's relatively easy to keep a
close eye out for signs of the disease:
You just-Jlok at your skin for unusual
cbaiges, such as moles or marks that
-grow, shift in shape or color, or bleed
easily. Researchers at the University of
Michigan have developed a free iPhone
and iPad app that helps users do just
that, allowing them to take photos of
their skin and monitor changes over
time.
"Whole body photography is a
well-established resource for following
patients at risk for melanoma," said
Michael Sabel, associate professor of
surgery and lead physician in the app's
development. "However, it requires
a professional photographer, is not
always covered by insurance, and can
be an inconvenience. Now that many
people have digital cameras on their
phones, it's more feasible to do this at
home."
The app, called UMSkinCheck,
guides users through a series of 23
photos, covering the body from head
to toe. Photos are stored within the
app and serve as a baseline for future
comparisons, for which the app sends
automatic reminders. If a mole ap-
pears to be changing or growing, the
photos can be shared with a derma-
tologist to help determine whether a
biopsy is necessary.


UMSkinCheck can be found on
iTunes.

GET ME THAT. STAT!
According to various studies, more
people spend at least some of their time
in showers dreaming (30 percent) than
singing (25 percent).

Why should I sell What's HOT in the marketplace?


my home now?
Now is as good time as any to sell your
home if it is price fairly according to current
market prices. True, it may be far less than
what you would initial expect your home to
be worth. However, think of it like this, if
you waited for the prices to come back up,
look at how much more interest, taxes and
insurance you could possibly be paying
for an
Michelle Hutto unknown
[ f period of
time.
SAddi-
tionally,
Keystone Real Estate, Inc there are
buyers
out in the
market looking. The buyers can afford to fi-
nance. If you are needing to sell to relocate,
downsize or upsize, it is always a good time
to sell. Keep your home in great condition.
Make it have a fresh curb appeal attraction
inside and out.

What is a CMA?
A Comparative Market Analysis, which
a REALTOR can easily perform using data
from the MLS, Multiple Listing Service. I
would look at the subject and find at least
three to four comparable sized homes,


This home was listed for $85,000 and recently sold for $67,500 with only 28 days to contract!


yards, year built etc that are listed and have
sold within the past six to twelve months.
The report then gives you the average
price, average days on the market and
much more data to help the client make
a informed decision on listing or buying a
property.
How do I compete with foreclosures?
Make your house attractive, physically.
Even if your house is priced higher than


foreclosures, the buyers really prefer a move
in ready home.
Often times foreclosures need new a/c's
because the originals were either stolen, or
broken, light fixtures, appliances are miss-
ing, carpet needs to be cleaned or replaced,
interior needs paint inside and out etc.
These things could costa lot of money. So
it is best to have all of these show in the best
of light to the potential buyer, this would be
how you can be superior to a foreclosure.
