Homecoming for new principal


By BRIAN ACKLEY
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
There's a new principal at Frostproof Elementary
School, but it's hardly a new face in the community.
Dart Meyers was named to replace KimVanhook
several weeks ago, and will be at the helm when
school officially starts for students Monday morning.
But Meyers is no stranger here. His parents moved
to Frostproof many years ago when they retired, and
Myers himself did a turn as assistant principal at Ben
Hill Griffin Jr. Elementary School a few years back.
Polk County made a number of principal reas-
signments in July, including former Frostproof
Elementary Principal Kim Vanhook, who was moved
to Dundee Elementary, allowing Meyers to come back
"home," so to speak.
"I grew up in Ohio, and when I graduated from
high school, my parents were already retired and had
friends in the Frostproof area," he said, explaining
how he arrived here in the early 1990s. "I used to visit
and liked the area, and ended up going to Webber."
AtWebber, he started in marketing, but then
switched to take his teaching courses through USE
His education master's is from Nova Southeastern
University.
He started out at the middle school level as an
ESE teacher, and then worked as a staffing special-
ist. He spent four years as assistant at BHG, from
2001 to 2005, and then to Dundee Elementary as an
assistant as well.

Black bear's big adventure













PHOTO PROVIDED
This black bear caused quite a stir in Frostproof Friday
afternoon and early evening, and was quite a star for a period
as many city residents came out to take a look and take a
picture of the furry creature. The Polk County Sheriff's Office
got a call of a sighting in mid-afternoon at Lilly Lake. The
bear worked its way toward the city around the south end of
Lake Clinch, eventually winding up in a tree on North Avenue,
after possibly being scared by the PCSO helicopter that was
monitoring the bear's path. After being left alone for about
15 minutes, the bear came down from the tree, and was last
seen heading into the wooded area behind Ferguson Enter-
prises distribution warehouse early Friday evening.

VIEWPOINT


State should head Integrity Florida's call


Florida led the nation in public corruption from
2000-10, with 781 federal convictions. The state ethics
commission is so toothless, investigators can't initiate
probes of suspected corruption and even those fined
for violating ethics rules routinely flout the penalties
by not paying.
. Enter Integrity Florida, a newly formed nonprofit,
nonpartisan ethics watchdog whose mission is to
"promote integrity in government and expose public
corruption." The vision of the group, led by former
staff members of Florida TaxWatch and Common
Cause Florida, "is a Florida with the most open, ethi-
cal, responsive and accountable government in the
world."
Report co-author Dan Krassner, who visited with
the our editorial board last week, noted that the
group is already drawing high-level support in the
Legislature. It also demonstrated a streak of fearless-
ness when it published a scathing report about lax
corruption controls in the state's economic develop-
ment arm, Enterprise Florida, which has been the
focus of criticism elsewhere for a spotty job-creation
record despite spending tens of millions of state tax.
dollars on incentives. It highlighted repeated acts
of self-dealing among the agency's members, who
pay $50,000 to serve on its board, and criticized its


Our Viewpoint
penchant for secrecy. Among the reforms Integrity
Florida recommended for Enterprise Florida:
Post all board meeting material, agendas, minutes
and call-in numbers for all of its board, executive
committee and stakeholder group meetings.
Close public records loopholes and require it
to post all agency contracts within 48 hours (with
business names redacted to honor important confi-
dentiality agreements).
Use a return-on-investment calculator to gauge
whether the state should offer incentives to prospec-
tive businesses.
Implement a claw-back mechanism to enable the
state to recoup incentive money from businesses that
fail to produce promised jobs.
Corruption is so widespread in Florida that Forbes
magazine put three Florida cities on its America's
Most Miserable Cities list in large part due to perva-
sive corruption.
"Florida faces a corruption crisisthat threatens
the state's reputation, its economy and its ability to
attract new jobs and capital," Krassner and research
director Ben Wilcox concluded in their report,
"Corruption Risk Report: Florida's Ethics Laws."


That report recommended several common sense
reforms to strengthen Florida's ethics laws and
give ethics enforcement officials more authority to
investigate and prosecute violations. Among the
recommendations:
Grant the ethics commission authority to initiate
investigations.
Create a corruption hotline for whistleblowers.
Require public officials to report all financial
transactions more than $1,000.
Create an online disclosure filing system to make
reporting easier and more transparent.
Public corruption undermines Florida's economic
growth in myriad ways. It dissuades companies from
ifivesting in the state because they perceive the play-
ing field is not even.
It wastes public resources by expending scarce
incentive dollars on dubious deals that don't provide
promised returns on investment. It contributes-to a
culture of wrong-doing because people assume cor-
rupt practices are simply business as usual.
We applaud Integrity Florida and its supporters for
undertaking this critical mission and call on Gov. Rick
Scott and the Legislature to move swiftly to imple-
ment reforms that will reverse the dangerous course
Florida is on.


Letters to the editor



Vote no on Amendment 4


Going before the voters is a modi-
fication to our property tax system
(Amendment 4). Florida's property tax
system took a turn for the worse in 1995
when Save Our Homes went into effect.
The property tax system has been going
downhill ever since. Floridians used
to enjoy an easy, simple property tax
system that treated property owners
fairly. Look at your upcoming TRIM
notice, and behold a monstrosity.
Moreover and against logic, the
continued mutilation of the property
tax system is a result of a Republican
led Florida. This really makes my skin
crawl, because we Republicans do not
like complex tax systems that pick win-
ners and losers, which gives handouts
to special interest.
The proposed property tax changes


will have no effect on the Florida
Legislature's budget. The property tax
changes will continue to erode Cities
and Counties, as they are all turning to
storm water and fire assessment fees.
A law-enforcement assessment fee is
coming in a few years.
Homeowners cannot use these fees
in their federal tax return. We can use
the property tax as a deduction, but the
fees are not deductible. I want a simple
property tax system, and no fees.
I ask you to vote no on the flawed&
Amendment 4, and support a return to
a simple and fair property tax system.
Property taxes should not require an
accountant!

Japanese students polish English skills at Warner
of thir lerningexperence" ute


By MARY CANNADAY
NEWS @ FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET


Forty female students from Japan are
having a three-week whirlwind at Warner
University, combining class time with
fun. The goal: to enrich their conversa-
tional English skills while learning more
about American culture.
On Tuesday, the girls were treated to
a demonstration featuring Gatorland's
collection of small reptiles. And contrary
to the expectations of the handler, the
students showed little fear of the toothy,
crawly creatures.
For 22 years, junior and senior
high school students from Tamagawa


Seigakuin, a Church of God school
for girls in Tokyo, have been guests of
Wamer. The three-week program each
summer provides a faith-based cultural
and educational experience. According
to the program's director, Ruthie Moyer,
"The Japanese people place a high
premium on education and cultural
and international experience. More
than 120 students compete each year to
participate."
According to Cody Moyer, who coordi-
nates the program along with his sister,
Lindsey Woods, the students already
know how to speak English, and this
gives them a chance to put their knowl-
edge into practice. Certainly they were


challenged by the reptile handler, Joel,
who did not initially realize the girls were
tentative in the English language. Three
teachers come to Lake Wales with the
girls each year. Their classes in English at
Warner are taught by university students.
The girls live in dorms on campus for
most of the three weeks, staying with
local host families two of the program's
weekends.
While at Warner the girls attend
classes, participate in chapel services
and experience a birthday party, school
officials said. Outings include trips to
Bok Tower Gardens, SeaWorld, Islands of
Adventure and Epcot.
"Journaling is an important part


of their learning experience, Ruthie
Moyers said. "Each student is required
to keep a daily journal to record her
experiences in words and pictures and
what she finds different from her own
culture."
The Council of Christian Colleges and
Universities (CCCU) has recognized
Warner University's Tamasei program
for Best Practice on Internationalization
in "efforts to promote and foster cross-
cultural awareness on institutional cam-
puses," according to literature provided
by the university.
Warner University, a Christian lib-
eral arts university, is located at 13895
Highway 27 in Lake Wales.

He said he doesn't anticipate any
major changes, and will spend time in
the classrooms to learn what Frostproof
Elementary is all about.
"I'll kind of observe and go around to
the classrooms and go from there, see
what's going well, what's working and
successful here, and get input from staff
and the leadership team," he said about
the coming weeks.
Shay Hixenbaugh remains as the

noted.
Knowing a few familiar faces from
his time at Ben Hill Griffin has made
the transition go more smoothly than
might be expected too.
In fact, he has a close connection to
his new secretary, Deanna Norris.
"Her mom was secretary at Ben Hill
Griffin when I was there," he said. "It's
' nice coming in knowing some people.
When I heard Frostproof, I was excited.
It's like coming back home in a sense."
He said because Frostproof
Elementary is only pre-K through grade
two, it is important to work closely with
BHG to make sure students are ready
for FCAT testing and other academic
challenges.
"We're all in this together for the
community of Frostproof, and not only
with Ben Hill, but with the middle and
high school," he noted.

City leaders did note that there was
some concern about the entertainment
going late into the evening. Brackin said
*that would be addressed.
City Manager T.R. Croley said she took
one call from a resident who lived near
the park, and that person was speaking on
behalf of several neighbors as well.
"They weren't opposed to the relay, they
just asked if they would reconsider that
the louder bands be earlier in the evening
and not later in the evening," Croley
noted.
Brackin said that when their group
recapped this year's events, and assessed
positives and negatives, that the loudness
problem had already been identified as
something that needed to be changed.

A caveat: the formula for computing
taxable values is far more complex
than determining if you are a first-time
homesteader. The numbers cited above
work for a tax bill of $1,000.

Let's assume for the sake of these
questions that you qualify as a "first-
time" Florida homesteader.
Would everyone who would be
willing to have one-fifth as many law
enforcement officers raise your hands?
One-fifth as many firefighters?
One-fifth as many ambulances?
How about closing four of every five
public parks?
And four of every five libraries?
How about taking five times as long
to bring criminals to trial?
And one-fifth as many prison cells to
hold them?
Where are all those hands now?
If everyone paid only one-fifth
of their tax bill, those would be the
consequences, unless four-fifths of
the people who provide government

people into buying homes. And the
exemptions would be phased out over
five years. That $200 tax bill would go
up by $200 each year for five years.
Isn't this the way the present hous-
ing debacle was created ... by making
it possible for people who could not
really afford their mortgage payments
to borrow the money anyway?
And finally, if first-timers pay only
20 percent of their share of taxes, who
will pay the other 80 percent?
Look in the mirror and raise your
hand.

first-time Florida homesteader in 1964.
He has long defined "tax reform" as a
restructuring of the tax system to let
him pay less than his share of taxes by
making someone else pay more than
their share.)

Washington, D.C., on and grew up
in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and

other ships deploying with units to the
Atlantic, Pacific, Mediterranean and
Caribbean in defense of his country.
He was stationed in Norfolk, Va.; San
Diego, Calif.; Barbers Point, Hawaii; and

Navy Relief Society, was a volunteer
campground host and worked in

quick to defend.

By ANITA WHITAKER
CORRESPONDENT
Jocelyn McIntee isn't your ordinary
elementary school student. The fourth-
grader is-earning a reputation for selfless-
ness. In April, having just recovered
from a near fatal case of viral meningitis
encephalitis, Jocelyn wasn't contemplat-
ing her recovery or just how sick she
had been for nearly a month. Instead,
she started to plan what she could do to
prevent the same thing from happening
to her classmates.
The Bethune Academy student's goal is
to raise enough money to purchase elec-
tric hand sanitizers for each classroom at
the school. Once that's achieved, she said
she'd like to help provide the sanitizers
for all Polk County schools.
"Kids need to be in school. They don't
need to be at home sick," said Jocelyn. "I
told my mom that I wanted to help make
sure that my friends didn't get sick like I
was."
Jocelyn and her mother, Ashlee, who
is a teacher at Bethune Academy, initially
met with the school nurse who became
an immediate advocate of the project.
"I admire Jocelyn's battle and how she
keeps kicking back. Right now, her fight
is to educate her peers and adults on the
importance of hand washing and sanitiz-
ing," said Mamie Hall, Bethune Academy
school nurse. "I look at her and think,
'Wow. She is only 9 years old and look at
what she is doing. She truly is a dreamer
and doer.'"
Even Disney thinks so, because in May
2011, she was recognized and named a
Disney Doer and Dreamer Shining Star
(District Elementary School Level), one
of only 15 students across central Florida.
Jocelyn received that honor after forming
a "Go Green Garden Club" in order to


revive a butterfly garden on the school
. campus.

Her illness
After nine scary days in the hospital
with several wrong diagnoses, Jocelyn
finally began treatment for viral menin-
gitis encephalitis.
Meningitis the inflammation of
the meninges, the tissues that cover the
brain and spinal cord, caused by a virus
is contagious and is spread through
either poor hygiene or mosquitoes.
That combined with encephalitis an
acute inflammation of the brain -
made Jocelyn's case more serious.
"The doctors aren't sure how Jocelyn
got sick since she wasn't diagnosed
immediately," Ashlee said.
Even after they knew what they were
dealing with, Jocelyn fell into a coma
for four days, prompting the doctor to
inform her parents that she may not
make it. But ever resilient, Jocelyn not
only fully recovered but got back to
school in April, just in time to take the
FCAT and begin "Jocelyn's Story."

About the program
"Jocelyn realizes the power of her
imagination and creativity and she has
a passion that has allowed her to create
opportunities for a positive transfor-
mation of those circumstances," said
Bethune Academy Principal Sharon
Knowles. "Jocelyn is always thinking
'What if?'"
Knowles and the rest of the staff and
students are supportive and excited
about the project; but, in order to get
the word out to a wider audience,
the family created and published a
YouTube video (http://tiny.cc/wul5gw)
called "Jocelyn's Story Sanitize to Save
Lives."


PHOTO PROVIDED
Earlier this year, Jocelyn Mcintee contracted viral meningitis encephalitis. It was touch and go for
awhile whether she would survive, but she did.


So far, the three-minute video has
had nearly 800 hits and about
10 percent of what is needed has been
deposited into a bank account (also
named Jocelyn's Story) set up for the
project.
Jocelyn's plan, provided there have
been enough in donations, is to have
the $30 electric hand sanitizers installed
outside each of the 24 classroom doors
at the beginning of the school year.
"When I was in the hospital, I
watched the doctors sanitize their
hands outside my door before they .
came in and when they left," Jocelyn
said. "They kept everything clean that
way, so we can too."
Although the butterfly garden benefit


the entire student body, as will pro-
ceeds from Jocelyn's Story, her current
project is more personal for Jocelyn
and her family.
"I was just a regular girl. I played
with my dog, swam in the pool, loved
to go outside as much as I could,"
Jocelyn said in the YouTube video. "It
happened to me. There are viruses and
diseases out there. That's why I wantto
get money to get hand sanitizers to go
around the school, to keep the kids as
clean as possible so they don't have to
go through what. I went through."

It's been rainy but that's normal


June set a downfall record, but now it's just Florida summer


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
Heavy rains that kicked off summer
coupled with fallout from a tropical
storm have allayed drought condi-
tions that persisted in Polk County for
several years, according to both the
U.S. Weather Service and the Southwest
Florida Water Management District.
Tom Doughtery of the NWS says that
June brought Polk County more than
15.inches of rain, followed by some
7 tIches in July, bringing Central
Fl6rida back into its normal rain pat-
terns. The more than 15.5 inches that
fell in June nearly doubles the average
of 8.02 inches and broke the 1968
record of 14.86 inches. The amount
that fell in July was under the monthly
average and less than an inch has been
recorded this month.
"We saw a lot of rain but with no
El Nifo, we're now back into our nor-
mal weather patterns," Doughtery said.
June's normal rainfall hovers about
7 1/2 inches, he said, while July's rains
at near that level may be slightly low.
National media reports indicated
Polk County was among those 2,000
plus or minus counties across the
nation listed as "in drought," but Robyn
Felix of SWFWMD explains that as of
July's end, drought conditions had been


erased.
"We're not feeling any more major
drought impacts," she said. "We've had
good rainfall and have been able to
ease watering restrictions throughout
the district."
The Southwest Florida Water
Management District governs water
usage throughout most of Polk County
and West Central Florida, she added.
"We had tightened water restrictions,
but are now back to normal, with most
people being able to water their lawns
twice a week now," Felix says. She also
says the underground Floridan Aquifer
which feeds most of the area with drink-
ing water also appears to have been
recharged with the early summer rains.
"We've seen a resurgence of the water
levels in the aquifer and lake levels,
which means our water supplies are
adequate once again," she said.
"All our levels are back to normal,
except the lakes," she added. "The lakes
have never recovered from the '05-'10
drought situation and it takes longer
for them to recover."
Restored water levels are also having
a positive impact on the upcoming
growing season, according to Dan
Sleep of the Florida Department of
Agriculture.
"As long as we continue to get decent
amounts of rainfall, our upcoming


MOSQUITO SPRAYING
The Mosquito Control Section of the Parks and
Natural Resources Division is spraying in some areas
this week to control adult mosquito populations
to eliminate breeding and biting mosquitoes.
Among areas sprayed Monday were East Lake
Hancock, Eagle Lake, Highlands City and Bartow.
On Tuesday East Lake Wales, Eagle Lake and
Mulberry were sprayed.
Today, Bartow Municipal Airport, Wahneta, Lake
Eloise, Indian Lake Estates, River Ranch, Lake
Buffum and West Frostproof are to be sprayed.
Thursday Green Swamp, Auburndale and Haines
City will be sprayed.
production season looks very promis-
ing," he said.
And while the restoration of water
levels on almost all fronts is good,
there's also a downside.
- The Florida Department of
Transportation says there was a
washout on State Road 60 west of
Mulberry that had to be rebuilt and
the myriad of ongoing construction
projects have seen some minor delays.
Cindy Clemmons, FDOT spokeswom-
an, said one U.S. Highway 98 widening
near Lakeland will be impacted by
about almost two weeks; those nearer
to Bartow only lost four days due to
the rains.
The Polk County mosquito control


department is also dealing with the
result of heavy rains: a significant in-
crease in biting mosquito populations.
"Most of the county is afflicted by
unusually high populations of flood-
water and standing-water mosquitoes,"
county spokesmen said.
The county has stepped up its
inspections and treatment of known
mosquito breeding areas and is spray-
ing as needed based on those results.
Some residential inspections are also
under way to help curb the burgeoning
biter population.
The county issued alerts to residents
to avoid outdoor activities at dusk
when the biters are busiest, but also
cautioned that floodwater varieties
can bite during daylight hours. Anyone
who must be outside when the pests
are most active are encouraged to
cover up and use repellents with DEET,
picaridin, oil of lemon and eucalyptus.
Homeowners are also encouraged to
repair or replace broken or damaged
screens to keep the insects out.
Summer rains are what most
Floridians expect, but Felix added,
there may be more in store after the
end of the hurricane season. "We are
being told that this winter is predicted
to give us more than normal rainfall
during the upcoming winter months,"
she said.

Education and the communities for 2012-13 school year


W th the changes and chal-
lenges taking place in schools
and student academics, it is
imperative for parents to be involved in
their child's or children's education.
The Florida Comprehension Assessment
Test (FCAT) 2.0 and Common Core
State Standards (CCSS), which will be
fully implemented in 2013-14, and the
Partnership for Assessment of Readiness
for.College and Careers (PARCC) are the
major changes that are taking place locally,
state and nationally in education.
In order for students to achieve aca-
demic and assessment success at an early
age, parental involvement must take place
as soon as possible, not when he or she
enters third or fourth grade, is disruptive
in the classroom, is suspended or expelled.
This involvement must take place at the
ages of 1 through 5 and continue..


Shandale Terrell

. L iso


When parents are engaged in their child's
education, they positively influence the
child's chances of success. Children whose
parents are involved in their education at
an early age tend to perform better than
their peers who have uninvolved parents.
Parents and school personnel must
work together to ensure positive parental
involvement is taking place each year.
Communication by phone, email or news-
letter is a great way for school personnel


to express their concern about parental
involvement. If all else fails, the target
school can provide mentors for students if
needed for each grade level.
Mentoring is defined as a one-on-one
relationship between the student, adminis-
trator, educator or adult wherein the more
experienced person provides personal,
academic and career guidance and train-
ing to the less experienced person, student
or child. This relationship between the less
experienced student and more experi-
enced mentor contains both short-term
and long-term objectives which will assist
any disadvantaged child.
It is vital to provide the adolescent a
positive role model to receive consistent
support and guidance, as well as provide
the mentor with opportunities for learn-
ing, reinforcing and building the positive
characteristics and traits that are needed in


current and future school communities.
The Florida Department of Education
lists a variety of ways parental involve-
ment and mentors can impact student's
education. When parents or mentors are
involved in students' education, they will
achieve academic assessment success,
higher grades, better attendance, increased
self-esteem and motivation, and fewer
disciplinary problems in the school setting.
Too many students are being swayed
by the wrong influences, such as drugs,
and gangs. Parents, business leaders,
CEO's, government officials, big business
personnel, commissioners, and commu-
nity leaders can impact students' lives. It
'is imperative we provide the best educa-
tion and a safe learning environment for
all students. Too many of our young men
and women are being incarcerated or
living short lives.


There are ways to take part in rail study


The Florida Department of
Transportation has new ways to par-
ticipate in the Polk Rail Study and it is
inviting the public to visit two websites,
an information portal and a discussion
forum, in addition to upcoming public
workshops in September. .
The information portal, www.polkrail.
com, contains detailed information about
the Polk Rail Study
Visitors can review project details, the
range of proposed alternatives including


short term options to reduce impacts,
and schedule. The public can also down-
load project reports, maps, and other
documents.
People can join the conversation by
visiting ideas.polkrail.com/- which is
a virtual town hall where citizens can
submit ideas and suggestions. Visitors
can also interactively place points ori a
map to indicate the intersections they feel
have traffic congestion caused by passing
trains or where they would like to see


other improvements such as a pedes-
trian/bicycle underpass.
The FDOT has a series of public
workshops for people to learn about the
project. All meetings will be identical in
format, presentation, and displays and
are on Monday, Sept. 10, at the Lakeland
Center, in Lakeland; on Tuesday, Sept. 11
at Fantasy of Flight, in Polk City; and on
Thursday, Sept. 13 at the Bartow Civic
Center. All are 5-7 p.m. in an open house
format with an opportunity to view the


displays and discuss the project with
project team representatives.
There will be a presentation at 6 p.m.
During the workshops, attendees can
also visit interactive exhibits such as
a noise booth to listen to sound level
samples of trains, motorcycles, and other
examples.
The study is to identify the best
solutions for regional freight movement
through Polk County while minimizing
community and environmental impacts.

City signs on to Enterprise zone effort


Area to include more than U.S.


17 with Frostproof's interest


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
Frostproof is the latest city to join in
a league of cities that want to be part
of an enterprise in the east part of Polk
County.
The city gave it's approval to the
move at a meeting earlier this month,
and it will be included a resolution
Rep. Ben Albritton plans to give to the
state Legislature in its next session.
His bill would authorize a zone that
will include Polk County, Frostproof,
the city of Bartow, the Bartow Airport
Authority, The Bartow CRA, Eagle Lake,
Eort Meade, Lake Wales, Mulberry and
Eloise.
An Enterprise Zone along U.S. 17
would not only attract new businesses,
but also provide new jobs. The Florida
Enterprise Zone Program Annual
Report, published Oct. 1, claimed that
7,559 new businesses moved into or
were created in Florida Enterprise
Zones and 6,784 new jobs were created
by businesses located in enterprise
zones. There are 59 enterprise zones in
the United States.
Enterprise Zones offer corporate and
sales tax credits for hiring residents of
the zones. Sales tax refunds are offered
to businesses located in the zone that
purchase building materials and busi-
ness equipment for use in the zone.
But nrow with Frostproof on board and
with Lake Wales mixed in the zone could
go further than the U.S. 17 corridor.
"We're including Lake Wales and
'Frostproof and the south end of the


county, Eloise and Wahenta" Polk
County Commissioner Melody Bell
said. "That is 17, highway 60."
The idea is also to make it a Green
Zone. That would designate an area
that produces products in a green way.
Because of a vote by the Tampa City
Council to include Polk County in a
foreign trade zone last year, businesses
that locate here could apply to save
money on excise and duty taxes in the
products they ship.
"This is very important to the eco-
nomic development in Polk County,"
-Albritton said.
There already are two enterprise
zones in Polk County. There is one in
Lakeland and another one in Winter
Haven that was applied for about eight
years ago and is now getting under way.
This one would include about 20
square miles, said Jim DeGennaro, a
community development manager
with Polk County.
Part of the process of setting up
an enterprise zone is to make sure
statistics properly match according to
numbers with the U.S. Census.
To that end, Patrick Brett, who
headed up this project when he wanted
to start this last November, has com-
pleted a prospectus those involved
can see. The numbers are not available
from the Census Department.
Though Brett no longer has his
position as the executive director of
the Bartow Community Development
Agency, he said he is continuing on
the enterprise zone project because
he believes it would be useful to Polk

an Enterprise Zone.


County's future.
Others are with him on that.
"He's going to do this on his own
time," Bell said.
Brett and DeGennaro worked
together on the synopsis language for
the enterprise zone.
In the process of getting the OK from
the state House of Representatives,
Albritton will seek a colleague from the
Florida Senate for a companion bill.
Once the Florida Legislature grants
EZ consideration for a community, an
application process follows that includes
a strategic plan, a map detailing the EZ
boundaries and the formation of a local


Enterprise Zone Development Agency.
Albritton is interested in expanding
the list of incentives available to EZs if
they assist Polk County businesses and
do not necessary strengthen the busi-
ness bases of larger metropolitan areas.
There is still some way to go in creat-
ing this as an economic opportunity,
but Albritton remains.confident and
plans to get other legislative leaders
behind this.
"This is bigger than me," he said. "We
haven't met anyone yet in the entire
district that isn't focused on this thing
... what can we do make the future
better?"


WIU adds elementary education degree


Beginning this September, Webber
will offer the Bachelor of Arts in
Elementary Education on its cam-
pus in Babson Park. When Webber
International University announced
its merger with St. Andrews University
(formerly St. Andrews Presbyterian
College) in Laurinburg, North Carolina
last summer, there was much talk
about expanding the educational
offerings on both campuses. This is the
second such expansion in less than a
month. Two weeks ago, the St. Andrews
campuses in Laurinburg and Pinehurst
North Carolina announced that they .
were enrolling their first ever MBA
students.
In Florida, elementary education
programs are offered with two op-
tions. A student can obtain a Bachelor
of Arts in Elementary Education in
four years, or two degrees a Bachelor
of Arts in Elementary Education and
a Bachelor of Science in General


Business Studies in five years. Either
option requires a single semester in
residence at the Laurinburg, North
Carolina, St. Andrews University
campus, a 600 acre lushly landscaped
campus which is home to the univer-
sity's 128 horses and 3 championship
equestrian teams.
"It has the advantages of a semester
abroad, except, of course, you don't
need a passport, vaccinations, or a
long flight to get there!" said Dr. Keith
Wade, the University's President and
CEO. "It's a change of season, a change
of scenery, and an hour or two in any
direction will take one to any variety
of sites well worth seeing. Many
students think of it as fun since they
get to spend a semester somewhere
entirely different without having to
spend a lot of money to get there."
While the required education
courses are offered in the traditional
face-to-face format at the Laurinburg

campus, Wade thinks most Florida
students will end up taking them on-
line while taking their other classes in
Florida, rather than opting to spend
more than one semester in North
Carolina.


"That's their choice, of course, but
whether on-line or in-seat, it's our
faculty teaching, it's our curriculum,;
*and it's our program. We have the
same standards for on-line courses as
we do for in-seat courses." said Wade.

Principal change among many in county this summer


By PEGGY KEHOE
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
A number of Polk school district prin-
cipals were assigned to new campuses
at the end of July, several as part of an
intervention program to improve school
grades.
Twenty schools were affected by the
changes in leadership. Although some
of the changes were made at the request
of the principals themselves, some
reflect fallout from the recently-issued
school grades. Polk had two F schools,
which by law require dramatic change
of some sort from the district.
Former Frostproof Elementary School
.Principal Kim Vanhook was assigned
to Dundee Elementary School, which
received a D grade in the 2011-12
state rankings. Frostproof Elementary,
because it is a K through second grade
school only, doesn't get it's own grade
since there is no FCAT testing at that
level. It is lumped in with Ben Hill Griffin,
Jr. Elementary for state grade purposes.
BHG was a B school again this past year.
Other schools were affected as well,
though, those ranking from A all the
way through E
Assistant Superintendent for Human
Resources Denny Dunn stated: "In
order to continue to move the District'
forward and reach our goal of being
an "A" District, the Superintendent is


announcing that the following adminis-
trative changes are being recommended
to the School Board. These moves must
begin immediately in order to allow a
smooth transition to take place while
ensuring that our administrative teams
are secured well in advance of the start
of school.
"We appreciate these administrators
and their willingness to serve in a new
capacity during these trying times of
ever increasing state mandates. We look
forward to a successful and productive
year in Polk County Public Schools."
According to a statement from Polk
County Public Schools Superintendent
Dr. Sherrie Nickell, "In a district the size
of Polk County, there are many changes
among the leadership positions each
year. This happens for a variety of rea-
sons including retirements, requests for
transfers, promoting diversity to better
mirror our student population and not
the least of which is a school's specific
needs. These decisions are given careful'
consideration and with input from the
supervisor of each school. Placing a
principal in a particular school is one of
the toughest and most important deci-
sions made throughout the year.
"Our School Board, our parents and
our communities expect us to provide
great schools for our students. Our
focus is on meeting that expectation."
During the July 31 School Board work


session, Board Member Kay Fields
questioned the timing of the reassign-
ments, just three weeks before school
starts.
"I know some of these had to be
done once we got the grades, but not
all of them," she said. "Some schools
are losing their principal and assistant
principal, as well." She also asked
about number of changes being made;
20 schools were affected by principal
changes.
Fields added that principals "already
have a lot to contend with, with all the
stress they've been under. It's difficult to
form a team in a short length of time."
Nickell said the numbers were fairly
consistent with other summers; two
years ago, there were 27 principal
changes, she said. "I understand there
are a lot of changes," Nickell said. "If we
all work together we'll have a smooth
opening."
While most of the changes were
related to school grades, Fields said she
knew at least one wasn't.
"We are about building people,"
Nickell responded. "Our ultimate objec-
tive is to find solutions for children to
give them a quality education."
The state expects, Board Chairman
Hazel Sellers said, "when we have a
school in need, to put a strong principal
there. We've got to be sure that the
school has support," adding that she


believes Nickell has the support plan
needed.
Polk school administrators gathered
for a day-long back-to-school leader-
ship academy on Tuesday, Aug. 7,
at George Jenkins High School. The
agenda included special recognition
and break-out sessions offering updates
from various divisions throughout the
school district. Nickell gave opening
and closing session remarks.
"As we open our school doors on
Aug. 20, please take every opportunity
to allow each of your students to show
you the gifts that lie within them," said
Nickell. As instructional leaders, it is
"imperative" that administrators "speak
to the passion of your students so that
they remain interested and engaged in
learning," she added.
School leaders also heard from Winter
Haven High School student Jonathan
Allen who overcame personal challeng-
es and excelled in Advance Placement
courses. "Had I not had people who
believed in me, I wouldn't have made
it this far," he said. Allen's career plans
now include going to medical school to
become a doctor.
"Jonathan is the perfect example of
why we do what we do," said-Nickell.
"You'are people of heart and you prove
it every day through your professional-
ism, dedication and overall concern for
your students."

FEMA help available to Debby victims


By JEFF ROSLOW
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
Homeowners, renters and small busi-
ness owners in Polk County could get
some free repair money if they suffered
damage from Tropical Storm Debby that
caused a weekend of rain the last week of
June.
FEMA public information officer Dasha
Castillo said Polk is one of the counties
that has qualified to be eligible for repair
money after FEMA surveyed the county.
Though Polk County didn't suffer nearly
as much damage from Debby as many
other Florida counties did, Castillo said
there are many in Polk County who don't
realize the help is there.
"We want to create awareness," she
said. "Not a lot of people know there is
help available. Even if people removed the
debris there could be problems behind the
walls. When they register with FEMA, we
send an inspector and this is free."
She said the inspectors check everything
they can.
"Sometimes the damage is visible and
sometimes it's not," she said.
To register call 800-621-3362 (FEMA)
or 800-462-7585 if you have a disability or
hearing loss and use TTY, she said.
Though Polk was one of the more lightly
affected counties, Castillo said, she wants
to make sure people know the help is there
for homeowners, renters and small busi-
nesses. She said so far about 125 people
have registered and FEMA has given out
about $67,000 here. But, she said, she feels
like there are more.
"There are always rumors going
around," she said. "I have heard the
immigrant population is not getting the
information and if they don't have the
proper ID, they can use their children's
Social Security if they don't have one or
another family member's."


Pete McNally, director of Polk County's
emergency management, said his depart-
ment has found damage mostly in the
Winter Haven area where a tornado came
through the weekend of June 22.
"The major damage we had from that
tornado that went through the center of
the county was to about 120 homes, and
that's a rough number," he said. "Teams
went out over the last couple of weeks and
found some roofs that had been blown off
or a loss of shingles."
He said the main impact of the tornado
was in the Lake Winter area which is in
'the Cypress Gardens area justsouth of
Thompson Nursery Road.
"There were a couple of developments
impacted," he said. "It went through a
mall at Legoland and affected a shopping
area where Publix and Walmart are. It was
almost a straight line of about six or seven
miles."
He said there were also some damaged
areas in Lakeland.
FEMA declared 22 counties in Florida
that can get help. Aside from Polk, they are
Baker, Bradford, Citrus, Clay, Columbia,
Duval, Franklin, Gilchrist, Hernando,
Highlands, Hillsborough, Lafayette,
Manatee, Nassau, Pasco, Pinellas, Sarasota,
Suwannee, Taylor, Union and Wakulla.
Castillo said the help is available to
those who have insurance and to those
who don't have insurance.
"If they have insurance they can
register with FEMA," she said. It can
cover furniture and it covers renters and
homeowners.
If home repairs are needed, FEMA can
provide money for the repair or rental as-
sistance. She also said if people have to be
out of their homes up to 18 months worth
of rent is available if needed.
"I don't see it happening in Polk County
for that length of time but we just want to
create the awareness."

Locals give great effort in triathlon


PHOTOS BY K.M. THORNTON
Several Frostproof residents tried their hand at the recent Webber International University's
Scenic 17 Triathlon, which included a 15-mile bike ride from campus to Frostproof and back.
The event also included quarter-mile swim in Crooked Lake and a 3.1 mile run. Here, 13-year
old Dalton Hanger exits the water and heads for the bikes. It was his first-ever triathlon. He
finished the course in 1:56.02, good for 107th place.


A Polk County Sheriff's Deputy makes sure Frostproof's lan Oransby, a sophomore at
Frostproof Middle Senior High School, returns safely to campus after his 15-mile bike trek.
Oransby finished an impressive 16th overall in a time of 1:13.50.


Those things buzzing around up
in the skies today, they aren't big
mosquitoes.
Rather it will be Polk County's
Mosquito Control Section of the Parks
and Natural Resources Division which
has intensified inspections and treat-
ment of known mosquito breeding
areas, and is conducting ground and
aerial spraying as needed to control
adult mosquito populations based
upon mosquito trap results and citizen
service requests.
Residential inspections are also per-
formed to find and eliminate breeding
and biting mosquitoes.
Wednesday's spraying schedule
includes the Lake Buffum and West
Frostproof areas.
Mosquitoes are generally most
active at dusk and dawn; however the
floodwater mosquitoes can bite during
daylight hours. The best protection
from mosquito-transmitted diseases is


avoiding exposure to infected mosquito
bites. If you must be outside when
mosquitoes are active, cover up. Wear
shoes, socks, long pants and long
sleeves when outdoors. Apply mosquito
repellent to bare skin and clothing.
Always use repellents according to the
label. Repellents with DEET, picaridin,
oil of lemon, eucalyptus, and IR3535 are
effective, county officials noted.
They also encourage residents to keep
mosquitoes out of your house. Repair
broken screens on windows, doors,
porches, and patios.
Polk County residents experienc-
ing mosquito annoyance should call
534-7377 ext. 237 from 7 a.m, to 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday, send an email
to skeeter@polk-county.net, or visit the
Mosquito Control Website at
www.polk-county.net.
The treatments are scheduled based
upon mosquito trap data. All treatments
are subject to favorable weather.

Two years ago, Tom Mims, a
Lakeland businessman with real
estate holdings, complained to Polk
County Commissioners about be-
ing charged for garbage pickup on
undeveloped property. Believing his
complaints were falling on deaf ears,
he turned to the State Attorney's
Office for relief.
In January it contacted Richard
Weiss, Clerk of the Courts and
requested an audit. Weiss said one
would be done and completed in
February. However, that deadline
came and went and it would not be
until July 30 when an audit was finally
submitted to the SAO.
On Aug. 9, the SAO released an
investigative report, which spurred
a controversy over who or what
department was to blame for the
solid waste fiasco depends upon who
is asked. The investigative report re-
leased Aug. 9 by the State Attorney's
Office, authored by David W. Lyon,
places the blame squarely upon the
shoulders of the Clerk of the Courts
office.
Not so, countered Stacy Butterfield,
Clerk of the Courts finance and
accounting director, who made that
assertion at a presentation at the
Monday, Aug. 13, meeting of the
Tiger Bay Club. She laid the blame
at the feet of the Board of County
Commissioners, as the Solid Waste
Department reports directly to the
county commission and not the Clerk


Who's to blame?

clerk's office under fire, commissioners to


of the Courts office.
Regardless who and/or what de-
partment bears the ultimate respon-
sibility, the matter will be a topic of
discussion.
"We're taking up the issue next
Tuesday," said Commissioner Todd
Dantzler; the county commission
next meets Aug. 21 meeting.
He agreed with Lyon's assessment,
that the matter never rose to the level
of criminal activity, and indicated he
was not alone in that consideration.
The main thing now is to get at what
the final numbers are, in order to
begin working out reimbursements
from Republic Services, sole provider
of garbage collection in the county's
unincorporated areas. Those charges
are for fees collected on vacant
properties that should never have
been assessed.
"I think we will work something
out," he said. "We'll be as fair and
equitable to the people as we can."
He did not believe Republic
Services should be punished for the
overcharges, nor should the county
commission cancel the contract.
"It's like any business contract."
If there is a problem, it should be
reviewed between the parties, he
added.
Dantzler declined comment.on sev-
eral aspects, stating he did not want
to "try the case" through the media.
However, he did attempt to strike a
positive note.
"I think we've all learned something
from it," he said.
Commissioner Melony Bell was not


so conciliatory, although she stated as
of yet she had no precise knowledge.
"I haven't received the report yet,"
she said. In addition to herself and
Dantzler, who are not up for re-
election, she expressed the hope that
whoever is elected and/or re-elected
in Tuesday's primary and general
election in November takes a look at
the report.
Bell did not believe the responsibil-
ity lies with the county commission,
at least not in part.
"I think as far as the auditing part,
it's the Clerk of the Court," said Bell.
She saved her harshest words for
Republic Services. While she did
not believe the contract between
Republic Services and the county
could be terminated, she was not
against the prospect that when the
contract comes up again, or that the
commission look at contracting more
than one hauling service, given -
among other aspects the size of the
county.
Whether that might include
Republic Services would remain to be
seen, but Bell indicated no enthusi-
asm for the company.
"The trust is no longer there," she
said. Her lack of zeal was based not
only on the overcharges, but the fact
Republic Services had not honored
the part of the contract that called for
cleaning of trash barrels,which never
was performed.
"They should reimburse; they


discuss overcharge

need to reimburse. I don't think they
should walk away scott free."
As for county residents and busi-
nesses that had paid more than they
were supposed to, Bell said everyone
who had been overcharged should be
"reimbursed what they paid in."
Bell has had a previous negative
experience dealing with the company.
When she was a Fort Meade City
Commissioner, during the middle of
the last decade, the city was taken to
court by Republic. It was the low bid-
der for the city contract, but the city
was so displeased with the service
provided that it gave the contract to
the next highest bidder, Trash Taxi,
which prompted the lawsuit.
"That was in 2007," said Fort Meade
City Manager Fred Hilliard. The case
never went to court, instead going to
mediation. "They did not win."
However, Republic now handles
trash collection in Fort Meade. After
Trash Taxi merged with Advanced,
Disposal in 2010, it announced
shortly after that it was pulling out
of the contract with Fort Meade.
Republic offered to step in. While
it was first met with resistance, the
city grudgingly permitted Republic
to take over. However, it has not
been without controversy, and some
of the complaints registered in Fort
Meade are similar to those residents
in unincorporated regions of Polk
County have raised, especially lack of
customer service.


District still needs to fill more

than 150 teaching spots


By JEFF ROSLOW
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET

The Polk County school district is
looking to hire about 150 teachers
before school opens on Monday, Aug.
20, and accomplished some of that
with a job fair last Friday.
Job fairs are not too common but
the school district has a few of them
to help principals get the schools fully
S loaded. Before Thursday's drive there
were 157 teacher'openings among the
6,000 teaching positions in the county.
That number isn't high, but without
teachers in place the school district
will have to rely on substitutes for
some classes. Annissa Wilfalk, senior
coordinator of recruitment for Polk
County Schools, said there's a chance
the school district will be full when
school opens.
"Miracles can happen," she said,
adding that it's more than likely there
will be openings.
She said by the eighth or 10th day of
school is usually when they have all the
teachers they need.
A holdup in getting teachers hired,
including those offered jobs Friday at
the job fair, is that applicants have to
go through drug screening and other
prior commitments before starting. It
could take until Thursday before they
are ready to start, just three work days
before school starts.
Peg Brenner, director of personnel
for Polk.County Schools, said.the total
has exceeded 800 in some years so the
number of openings is not that large.
The openings are due to transfers,
retirements and other factors that
normally happen.
"We have not laid off teachers and
we were able to hire most of them
back," Brenner said. "We had some
teacher positions that were not re-
newed but we have to have a certain


number of teachers because of the
class size law."
The focus of Friday's job fair in-
.cluded principals from five schools,
mostly schools that scored D's or F's in
school grades. The schools there were
Denison, Bartow, Lake Alfred Addair
and Boone middle schools and Daniel
Jenkins Academy.
Denison Middle and Bartow Middle
earned D's, Lake Alfred Addair and
Boone Middle had F's and Daniel
Jenkins Academy had an A.
"These schools were invited because
they had a higher need," Brenner said.
Bartow Middle School, she said,
had 17 openings for teachers and the
school's new principal, Angela Gordon,
had 10 interviews that day.
Friday's job fair was "our role to help
them and give assistance," Wilfalk said.
"This initiative is for the more needy
schools."
The teachers who showed up for the
interviews were notified by the school
district and were given appointments
for interviews by one or more schools.
There were some walk-ons who found
out about the job fair and they were
given interviews that could be fit in.
The job fair was scheduled for five
hours and the appointments were
filled, so walk-ons could not be prom-
ised interviews. But, Wilfalk said, they
were trying to get interviews for them.
The teachers invited had to have the
proper background to be a full-time
teacher with Florida credentials and
certified to teach in certain areas.
Though most were from Polk County,
there were those from out of the area.
"We get a lot of applicants from out
of the state and we do an interview on
the phone and then invite them down
here" if it is warranted, Brenner said.
Background checks have to be done first.
The teachers start at level 0 and will
make $35,000 per year.

FEELING


Don't overlook dental care before school starts


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

Admittedly, a flurry of activity is
under way as adults and children are
gearing up for the new school year.
There are school supplies, along with
clothing much of which are school
uniforms to buy. There are also
immunizations scheduled by those
who may have procrastinated having
had their children inoculated. What
may get overlooked, however, is
dental care, which is just as impor-
tant tothe overall health of a child
(and adult). Research over the past
several years has demonstrated how
important good dental health is to a
person's overall health. As an ex-
ample, it has now been proven to be
a link between how healthy a mouth
is to how healthy one's heart is.
For children, it is not just a matter
of having a healthy smile. In young-
er children, many starting school for
the first time or in the early grades,
they still are transitioning from baby
to adult teeth. As a consequence,
some parents and guardians might
mistakenly believe that it is not
important for baby teeth to be
examined and taken eare of. That is
wrong, as unhealthy teeth and the


PHOTO PROVIDED
When getting checkups that schools require,
don't forget the teeth. Unhealthy teeth and
possible resulting gum disease can have a poten-
tial effect when adult teeth begin emerging and
can cause overall health problems.
possible resulting gum disease can
have a potential effect when adult
teeth begin emerging.
No matter what a child's age,
cavities are a concern, and a child
whose teeth begin hurting may find
the pain so intense as to prove a
distraction to learning. In addition,


infection from a cavity in one tooth
might spread to other teeth, as well
as into gums and roots.
For older youth, especially those
who become active in sports,
maintaining healthy teeth and gums
is a priority, not just for health
reasons. While protective mouth
gear is no guarantee an athlete's-
teeth and gums will not be harmed,
such devices greatly reduce that
chance; in those situations in which
damage does occur, the impact is
minimized.
There is also the factor of self-
image as a child enters into ado-
lescence. During those formative
years, pre-teens and teens become
very self-conscious of teeth as well
as body image. Those whose teeth
are not white, straight, or who may
have missing or broken teeth may
find themselves the object of ridi-
cule, or may be self-embarrassed to
the extent they withdraw, not only
from active school participation, but
from socializing during and outside
school days and hours.
It may be a cliche, because there
is so much truth to it, but those in
the dental profession recommend at
least a yearly exam. Ideally, dental
exams are recommended twice


per year, but at a minimum, have
at least one exam immediately or
shortly before the start of school.
Also do not delay bringing a child
to the dentist if an incident occurs
in which a tooth especially an
adult tooth might be loosened,
be it the result of injury or accident.
Time lost may result in the ultimate
loss of a tooth, which'may later
require further oral surgery days,
months or years later.
The key, say dental professionals,
in the overwhelming majority of
situations is preventive care. Start
children early on positive dental
care, which also leads to overall
general good health. With the ad-
vances in technology, the treatment
of cavities has been greatly reduced.
In addition, methods of treatments,
many which now employ laser tech-
nology and mild sedation, to name
but two advances, have minimized
if not eliminated much of the pain
and discomfort associated with
going to the dentist.
Remember, healthy teeth and
gums often result in better health,
self-image, attitude and perfor-
mance in school and in general.
What parent doesn't want to give
their children that gift?


First patient enrolls in melanoma clinical trial


Lakeland Regional Cancer Center
initiated as the only enrolling site
in the eastern United States for a
metastatic melanoma clinical trial,
and one patient, in particular, is filled
with hope because this ground-break-
ing option is offered within driving
distance from his home in
St. Petersburg.
NMilitary Veteran Carl Hall, 79,
was diagnosed with melanoma six
years ago, after inquiring about a
shiny mole he discovered on his
chest. The cancer was removed in its
entirety, along with multiple lymph
nodes which all came back clear.
Hall was cancer free and bound and
determined to enjoy every moment
of his life.
Three years later, Hall learned the
melanoma had returned. He was
referred to Lakeland Regional's Helen
Chanr, a board- certified surgical
Soncology specialist, who joined him
in the fight of his life.
"It meant the world to me to have
a specialist on my side who wanted
what I wanted," said Hall. "She has
a personality that sets you at ease.
She listened to what I wanted and
presented every option."
In 2012, his list of options grew
when he learned about LRCC's new


clinical trial, in which cancerous
tumors are treated with a potential
breakthrough therapy to include a
new medication and a mild electri-
cal current. Hall, who is known for
doing his homework and asking
for second opinions, liked what he
learned about the trial especially
since early data revealed the treat-
meht may.help destroy cancer while
leaving healthy cells intact.
With just a week into the trial
treatment, Hall says he is filled with
hope because he has already seen
the tumors in his neck shrink in size.
"To already see positive results
without the harsh treatments and
side effects I've experienced in the
past is what means the most to me,
said Hall. "I am fighting this cancer,
while still living life to the fullest."
Hall says another reason he wanted
to take part ini the clinical trial is
because it had the potential to help
many others facing cancer.
"Now that I'm in the midst of it, I
want others in my situation to know
what this treatment has' the potential
to do for them-- to-offer a cure, of
sorts, not just remission."

clinical trials program, people can

Myasthenia Gravis: A nerve-muscle disconnect


DEAR DR. DONOHUE: You probably
have discussed this disease before, but it
didn't apply then. I have been diagnosed
with myasthenia gravis. I am a 79-year-
old woman in good health. How serious
is this? Now it affects only my vision. My
doctor has prescribed Mestinon. Does
myasthenia progress? EM.
ANSWER: Muscles work only when
nerves connect to muscles by way of a
chemical messenger acetylcholine. It's
released by nerves, and that chemical
latches on to what's called a muscle recep-
tor. When it does so, the muscle contracts.
Myasthenia is a condition in which
antibodies made by the immune system
block the attachment of acetylcholine
to muscle. It's the equivalent of pulling a
lamp's cord from the electrical outlet.
Myasthenia strikes at all ages, but
mostly between 20 and 30 for women
and between 50 and 60 for men. You're
at an age somewhat advanced for its
onset. Early symptoms include fatigue,
weakness of the arms and legs, difficul-
ty swallowing and difficulty chewing.
When eyelid muscles are involved,
the lids droop. When muscles that
move the eye are stricken, a variety of
visual troubles can arise. One of the -
most common is double vision. The
two eyes are not aligned as they would
be with normal eye-muscle function.


Two-thirds of those with ocular myas-
thenia go on to develop myasthenia
at other muscle sites. A number of
approaches restore normal vision to
those with ocular myasthenia.
What will happen to you down the
road is unpredictable. You are taking
the medicine most often prescribed
for myasthenia, Mestinon. It restores
muscle function for a great many
patients. If Mestinon doesn't prove
helpful, other medicines are available.
Do yourself a huge favor. Contact
the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation.
The foundation will provide you with
the latest information, and will alert
you to local MG groups where you will
find people who have been through
the same experiences you are going
through. You can reach the foundation


at its website, www.myasthenia.org. If
you don't have a computer, a friend or
relative does.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My recent
bloodwork showed my creatinine at 3.8
and my blood urea nitrogen at 27, both.
of which are out of range.
My primary-care doctor informed
me that there are no tests to determine
the cause of this high elevation. The.
research I did on the Internet implies
that there is a possibility of kidney
failure.
I would appreciate some guidance,
as I am not comfortable ignoring the
situation. S.S.
ANSWER: Creatinine comes from
muscle turnover. A fairly constant -
amount is produced daily. All of it is
filtered into the urine by the kidneys.
If blood creatinine levels rise, that
strongly implies kidney trouble. The
normal creatinine for a woman is 0.5
to 0.9 mg/dL (40 to 80 micromoles/L),
and for a man the numbers are 0.6 to
1.2 (53-106). Your reading of 3.8 is very
high and implies significant kidney
trouble.
BUN, blood urea nitrogen, is the
end product of protein metabolism.
Like creatinine, it is a marker of
kidney function. The normal BUN is

Total cigarette consumption continues
on a decade-long decline, down
2.5 percent from 2010 to 2011, according
to the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention. That's the good news. The
bad news is that pipe and cigar smok-
ing, along with the use of noncigarette
tobacco products, is way up, largely
offsetting the overall numbers drop.
- The biggest increases were in pipe
tobacco (482 percent) from 2000 to
2011 and large cigars (233 percent). The
latter increase is largely due to tobacco
manufacturers adding weight (but not
size) to many small cigars so that they
can be reclassified and avoid higher
taxes and regulation.
"The rise in cigar smoking, which
other studies show is a growing prob-
lem among youth and young adults,
is cause for alarm," said Tim McAfee,
director of Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention's Office on Smoking-and
Health. The vast majority of smokers,
according to a recent surgeon general's
report, start the habit before age 26.
The CDC report says the disparity be-
tween cigarette consumption and other
forms of smoked tobacco is mostly
due to a lower federal excise tax on the
latter, making pipe tobacco (used in
roll-your-own cigarettes) cheaper. Also,
while Food and Drug Administration
rules prohibit the use of flavoring or


garette consumption contain

descriptors such as "light" or "low tar"
