Last week's anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, did not go unnoticed at Frostproof Elementary,
where students wrote thank-you letters and had a special gift for the city's firefighters.

Quiet budget season


ends Monday


By BRIAN ACKLEY
NEWS@FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
What turned out to be a relatively
calm-budget planning season in
Frostproof will come to a close
Monday with a second and final
public hearing on a 2012-13 spend-
ing plan that kicks in Oct. 1
That's probably due in large part
to the fact that for the fifth straight
year, the city is not raising it's millage
rate, despite a continuing drop in
property values. That rate is $7.8209
per $1,000 of assessed valuation.


No one from the public spoke dur-
ing a first hearing on the budget plan
last week.
And city commissioners, despite
a rather diligent review process that
has involved a number of meetings
and workshops, made just small
adjustments here and there.
One big item, a waterline project
that should enhance the city's fire
protection capabilities, did get a
green light as well, after spending
several year's on the city's "wish list."

Vacant ball diamond,


life full of memories

75-year old has two things on

his mind, 'softball and the Lord'
ByJAMESCOULTER -
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET


Behind the Frostproof Post Office lies
a vacant lot. Within it lies a basketball
court, grass peeking from the cracks
within its faded asphalt, overseen by
two rusty nefless hoops.
Across from the court stand two
soccer goal s. one broken down. Aside
from the dilapidated sportsequipment
and graffiti-marked dumpster, and the
occasional soccer player or two, the lot
remains empty.
Pinky Gravley, 75, lives across the
street from the lot. He remembers when
the space was home to a ball field; the
envy of every softball team in Florida.
Teams would arrive from all across
Florida to play within that field. They
would come from Ocala, Jacksonville.
West Palm Beach, Sarasota.
Clearwater, Tampa, Lakeland, Fort
Meade, Avon Park, Sebring, Wauchula
and Miami.
All sought the chance to hit a home
run over its 16-foot fence, which stood
75 feet from home plate and required
the ball to be hit 300 feet to scale it.
Many tried. Most failed. But all had fun
trying.
This was a time when Frostproof
was considered the softball capital of
Florida. For 20 years, from 1971 to 1991,
tournaments were held every weekend,
and as Gravley brags, they managed to
draw in quite the crowd.
"You'll never have as many fans as
Frostproof had at a ballgame," Gravley
said.
Every weekend the field would be
lined with cars, buses and campers.
Fans would cram the stands by the
hundreds. Men would enjoy their beer
and families would grill in the outfields.
With only one field and 16 teams
playing, tournaments often dragged
on all weekend. Gravley remembers
how they would start Friday night and
continue as late as 11 p.m. Sunday.
But long tournaments were hardly
a deterrent for either fans or players,
Gravley claimed.
"Even at 3 a.m. there were 500 people
still at the ball game," he said. "Because
at that time everyone loved the game.

Pinky Gravley is working out a deal with the
city to try to revitalize Henderson Field and
bring teams here to play.

They ate it and slept it. And it brought a
lot of revenue to Frostproof. It was the
good old days."
But the good old days have long since
become faded memories. The ball field
was eventually torn down and replaced
with the post office and lot.
Gravley has since forgotten the
exact date the ball field closed, and
for the most part, he does not wish to
remember.
"I was so hurt by it that I forgot when
it was," he said.
For more than 60 years, Gravley has
been playing and coaching baseball
and softball.
"I don't believe there is a person in
the state of Florida that loves softball
like I do," he said.
Born May 18, 1937, in Brevard, N.C.,
Gravley first started playing baseball

September 19, 2012


Are you a local? A local, in our opinion, is
anyone who is in Bartow right now, whether
a full-time resident, snow bird or even
temporary visitor.
If you're a local, it's good business to do
business locally. That may sound simplistic,
but it's one of the most important concepts
of supporting the community where you
live. If you live or visit here, your dollars will
help Bartow thrive, thus helping it continue
to be the place you love. Money is like the
lifeblood of the community. It needs to flow
through town to keep us healthy.
A recently overheard conversation brought
this home. A local businessman explained
to another why he had declined to be a
sponsor for a recent fund raising event. The
reason was the event organizers had "saved
money" by purchasing supplies on line. Not
only were they asking him to donate, but
they were effectively taking money from his
business. A perfectly acceptable local alter-
native for the supplies was available and that
alternative business was a customer of his.


Our Viewpoint

The event organizers were confused. They
thought they were being frugal, when in fact,
they actually were helping cash drain out of
town. The businessman explained what we
all should know.
When you buy in town from an indepen-
dent, locally owned business, significantly
more of your money continues to stay in the
community, strengthening the economic
base of the community.
Statistics support this. For every $100
spent in independently owned stores, $68
returns to the community through taxes,
payroll, and other expenditures. If you spend
that in a national chain, only $43 stays here.
Spend it online and nothing comes home.
These statistics come from the 3/50 project
(www.the350project.net).
There are a lot of reasons to do business
locally. Local businesses and business
owners spend money here, too. They pay


employees, they pay taxes, and they pur-
chase goods and services. They support
community groups with donations of time
and dollars.
Local businesses help reduce environmen-
tal impact; it takes less gas to drive around
Bartow than it does to go out of town. You
generally get better service from an indepen-
dent retailer, with employees who actually
know their product or service. They know
many of their customers personally. Try get-
ting that in a big box store! Local businesses
choose their own merchandise; they don't
rely on goods chosen by someone in New
York and shipped from a warehouse. Local
businesses hire your friends and neighbors
and keep our community unique.
We live in a small town with limited re-
sources: there's no way we can be considered
self sufficient, but there's more here than
meets the eye. It pays to shop Bartow first.
Many of the things you need can be found
here. The result can be savings for you, and
it's good for the community.


Letters to the editor


Get the facts first


In response to Don Frodge's letter in
your Sept. 15 edition, Ronald Reagan
was quoted by Frodge as saying "The*
United States does not start fights.
We will never be the aggressor."
Unfortunately G.W. Bush rescinded.
that policy and caused the death of
4,000 Americans and 30,000 additional
casualties to our U.S. troops in his
and Cheney's personal war in Iraq!
Frodge continues the Republican and
Teapoison Party's lie that our President
Obama "tours the world making apolo-
gies ..." -
Multiple fact checking sources have
attempted to put that lie to rest but
the fanatical right wing continues to
slander our President.
The so-called "weak, indecisive


The events of the last few days have
shown the failure of our Middle East
foreign policy. Our President failed
to even mention the attack on our
Egyptian embassy when he gave a
speech in the Rose Garden after finding
out about the death of our ambassador
to Libyan consulate in Bengazi. The
attack on our embassy is an act of war
and he did not say anything about it
much less denounce this brazen attack.
The murder of our Libyan diplomats
was a planned terrorist attack on 9/11
that used the rioting as a cover. Where is
the outrage from our President? All we
hear is an apology and a defense of free
speech. We have been attacked and we
can't even threaten to refuse any more


president" caused Bin Ladin's death (
which a majority of Republicans still
will not acknowledge in some regions
of the country) whereas George W. Bush
said in the past he didn't care where
Ben Ladin was and that he wasn't an
important target.
It is premature as Republicans are ,
wont to say (Romney last Tuesday, the
anniversary of 9/11 politically savaging
our president is a good.example) that
we have lost Egypt as an ally. They have
cleared the protesters from the area and
order has been restored.

pecting comrades in arms, any more

aid of these countries. His lack of any
denouncement of the embassy attack
probably led to more attacks on our
embassies in our countries and sends a
message of weakness to the people who
want to attack us.
At the same time our President
cannot find the time for a face to face
meeting with the leader of Israel at a
time when Iran is developing weap-
ons to destroy the nation of Israel. It
really feels like our government has no
leadership in terms of the Middle East
at a time when real decisions need to
be made. Where is the outrage for this
total failure by our administration? Why


Here a ramp, there a ramp


It was one of the most rewarding ex-
periences of my 30 years in the Florida
National Guard.
A sergeant first class came into my
office actually, just a cubicle in
which I held court as S-1 of the 53rd
Infantry Brigade.
The S-1 of a military organization is
responsible for personnel and adminis-
trative matters. That is what is known in
military circles as the "approved school
solution."
Actually, the S-1 is in charge of
troubleshooting any of the plethora of
problems that do .not come specifically
under the jurisdiction of the S-2 (intel-
ligence and security), the S-3 (opera-
tions and training), or the S-4 (logistics,
primarily supply and maintenance).
The office of my boss, the executive
officer, Lt. Col. Bob Taaffe, was right
next to my cubicle. Whenever a prob-
lem arose, he would shout, "S-1!"

on his hometown little league team the
Maple Street Warriors.
He moved to Frostproof in 1954.
Shortly thereafter, he began playing
semi-pro baseball with the Frostproof
Packers, first as a utility player, then as
their coach.
With Gravley in charge, his team
held an 80 percent winning streak,
played three state championships, and
consistently ranked in the top three in
the state, achieving state runners-up in
1966.
In 1971, he turned the team over to
Murray Wilson who went on to lead
them to victory in the state champion-
ship later that year.
From then on, Gravley focused his
career on softball, a sport he prefers
over baseball 10-1, claiming it has
fewer expenses and more action.
Every weekend for 30 years he would
organize and participate in softball
tournaments. Winning them was
always the highlight of his career.
He won more than 300 trophies, 100
of which were first place. Most he keeps
at home, though some are displayed
in Harvey's Mini Market. Some were
displayed in City Hall until a water leak
ruined them.
The secret to his success? Prayer.
"There are two things my mind has
always been on: softball and the Lord,
with the Lord first," he said.
During his entire career, Gravley
coached six teams, and played with
more than 1,000 players.
"Everybody wanted to play with me
back then, but they were scared to play
with me because they were afraid they
weren't good enough, but they were,"
he claimed. "If I ask a ball player to play
with me, he had to be good."
And he had the keen eye to spot the
good ones.
"I have the ability to watch a ball
player for five minutes, and I can tell
you what kind of ball player they are,"
he said.
One of those players was Gary
Garrett, Assistant Athletic Director at

Webber International University and
former baseball and football coach at
Frostproof High School. After moving
to Frostproof in 1970, he played with
Gravley on the Frostproof Packers for
two seasons.
"Piiiky loved to win, and if he
couldn't win, he would find players to
help him win," Garrett said.
Garrett recounts one game when
Gravley purchased two players from
Turkey Creek but wound up with
four. With only three spare uniforms,
Gravley asked one of his players who
was not playing that game to lend the
fourth player his uniform.
"It really showed how much he
wanted to win," Garrett explained.


"I don't think that's a bad thing. As a
coach all my life, I know that you coach
to win and that's what Gravley did.
His teams often ranked within the
top 4 in the state. Six or seven times, he
skipped attending the state champion-
ships and had Johnny Harnage coach
in his stead for him.
Other notable players who played
with him included Bruce Miller, Bill
Baggett, Johnny Heash, Kenny Beasly,
Earl Beasly, Jim Spooner, and his
favorite Shortie Carter.
"He was like a vacuum cleaner on
short stop and third place," Gravley
said of him, noting how he was the best
all around defense and offense.
His favorite team to play against was


the world-famous King and His Court.
He played against them four times,
including for their 50th anniversary
game in 1997 in honor of their star
pitcher Eddie "King" Feigner.
The toughest team he ever played
against was the Jacksons of Avon Park,
a team for which he and his team
maintained a mutual and respected
rivalry.
"Anytime one of us met, the other
one was afraid to play them, scared
that they were going to lose," he said.
"I know I was because I feared the
Jacksons more than any team that
ever played. They were a good team,
probably one of the best overall teams
in the state."
His love of softball runs though his
family. He married his wife Doris Dill in
1954, and they had four sons: Garrett,
Iodine, Pinky and Gary; the latter three
played softball.
His son Gary has won six tournament
MVPs and one state MVE Gravley's
most cherished moment was watching
him play shortstop.
"It wasn't because he was better than
the other short stops, but because he
was my son," Gravley said.
Aside from sports, Gravley and his
family also run Pinky Gravley & Sons
Painting. Their most famous work
has been the Welcome To Frostproof
billboard on U.S. 27.
Ever since the original field was torn
down, softball games have been held
first at the high school field and then at
Henderson Field.
Gravley recently has been given
charge of Henderson Field and plans
to renovate it and hold softball tourna-
-ments like the ones held in the good
old days starting early next spring.
"If it hadn't been for him, I don't
think the city would have taken care of
it as he did," Basketball Coach Jim Boyd
said. "He's a very dedicated man who
has put time and money into the game.

BUDGET
FROM PAGE 1

That project, which is expected to
cost around $1.2 million, will be paid
for from the city's growing reserves.
Even with that, the city is expected to


have some 60 percent of it's general
fund budget available in fund bal-
ances. City auditors have indicated in
the past that the city should have at
least 30 percent of one year's general
fund budget expenses in reserve.
General fund revenues for the
coming fiscal year are projected
at $2,416,620, according to the


city's Finance Director Melody
Walsh. Expenses are expected to be
$2,108,400.
The enterprise fund revenue -
money that comes in as utility pay-
ments is forecast to be $1,778,000
as compared to $1,286,330 in ex-
penses. There are slightly more than
$4 million in capital projects also on


the books.
I Including available reserves
counted as revenue, the total budget
is about $12.3 million.
.There are no employee raises, but
for the second straight year, full time
city workers will get a $1,000 one-
time bonus payment, while part-
timers get $500.

are like that. And they have my unlim-
ited respect.
"We have a disabledVietnam veteran
who is now a member of the Florida
Legislature who will be the keynote
speaker at our brigade review on
Saturday, and we need a wheelchair
ramp built to the reviewing stand so we
can push his wheelchair to the stage.
I can't find anybody who can build a
-wheelchair ramp."
"Sergeant," I said, "you are right
in your belief that I do not have the
resources to build a wheelchair xamp.
But before you leave my office, you will
have the name, phone number, and
building number of someone who can
build your ramp."
It took only one call, to the post
engineer's office. It helps to know who
has the capabilities to get a simple job
done.
"Sir, send your sergeant to my office
and we will have the ramp built by to-
morrow afternoon," the post engineer's
senior NCO told me.

Bartow has a gazebo in a park. The


park is not owned by the city, and the
gazebo was not built with city funds.
Some people don't realize that.
The city has been told that the ga-
zebo needs to be made ADA compliant,
government jargon for a wheelchair
ramp.
.City commissioners, told by the
city administration that it would take
$6,000 to build a wheelchair ramp,
decided it was not worth the money.
Nqt a bad decision.
Little note has been made that the
gazebo is on private property, or that it
was built many years ago without city
funds by two city commissioners, Bill
Goddard and Bill Simpson.
It was Goddard's idea, and he pulled
Simpson into the project. It is, in my
opinion, a masterpiece of engineering.
How much did it cost the city?
Not a dime.
Bill and Bill bought the materials,
and provided all the labor for free.
And what did the materials cost?
$400, Bill Simpson told me a few days
ago.
That's four hundred, not four
thousand.


that I may need one some day.
But I cannot understand why it
would cost $6,000 to build a wheelchair
ramp to a $400 gazebo.
I don't know that much about
construction costs, but I doubt that
my contact in the Camp Blanding post
engineer's office blew $6,000 on a four-
hour wheelchair ramp project.,
Happy ending: one city commis-
sioner has assured me that the city is
not going to tear down the gazebo. It
just is not going to build a wheelchair
ramp. That works for me.

COUNTY REPORT


Shopper marketing results vague

After a year program marketing department doesn't have all data it hoped it would


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

After spending a year in shopper
marketing Florida Department of
Citrus commissioners heard an update
on what the agency has accomplished.
Though the marketing department
expected some results after this period
of time, there were not many to report.
But, they were told they are reaching
some conclusions and getting some-
where positive.
"We hoped for quick results at that
time and were led to think it would be
easier," said Leigh Killeen, deputy ex-
ecutive director of domestic marketing.
"No one has been more disappointed
than I have been, or the team has been,
that this is taking so long. You've been
patient but we've worked real hard to
create a measure for these programs
and we know what's important."
In his -presentation to commission-
ers, Qaisar Shareef, a senior vice presi-
dent at MARS Advertising Inc., with 26
new programs the shopper marketing
program -which uses in-store promo-
tions, online and social media to reach
those doing the shopping, orange juice
sales increased last year by $1.96 for ev-
ery dollar spent and in grapefruit sales
rose 10 cents per every dollar spent.
Now, he says, research into what
works and what doesn't and where to
head'is the direction to take. In-store
promotions where shoppers are re-
minded of sales and partnerships, like
the agreement it had with Jimmy Dean
sausage on Father's Day that included a
coupon, worked well. Online and social
media aspects did not work as well.
"The best programs are pre-store and
post store elements," he said. "There
was something in the store that jogged
their memory again. They would leave
the store with the need to come back
again."
He added, "Where the program had
a reliance on digital and not focused in
the store didn't do as well."
Shareef spent nearly 30 years with
Proctor and Gamble before joining
MARS about a year ago.
He said currently there is about a
$3 return on the shopper marketing
program and he's looking for $4-$6,
though that may not be a realistic goal
for a single product as opposed to an


Violence in the media is a major
concern and has been a much dis-
cussed issue for a number of years.
With the advancement of technol-
ogy, many media formats are reaching
citizens, and in particular our children.
Children of prior generations were fa-
miliar with text materials, newspapers,
scholarly articles, journals, cinemas,
radio and broadcast television. Today,.
however, children have unrestricted
access to numerous cable television
channels, video games and an abun-
dance of Internet sites.
The majority of the research to date
suggests that violence is a learned
behavior, so children who are acting
out in violent and aggressive ways may
have learned violence by repeating the
violent behavior seen in the media.


overall set of products.
The return in sales didn't look
so great to Commissioner Michael
Haycock who said, "We spent $3 mil-
lion to get $5 million in sales. That's
doesn't look great to me."
Shareef said things could get better.
"The extent that we are learning from
this is not giving the return we want
now."
He also pointed out that what they
are doing is looking at juice sales; fruit
sales are not included.


"We may be missing part of this,"
he said. "I think we will go back and
look at grapefruit, too, and learn
more how to read it."
The effort to help the industry
further was pushed by a report from
Bob Norberg, the deputy executive
assistant director for the FDOC, who
said sales have continued to decline
and citrus prices are near the highest
they've been.
Total retail sales in the United
States up until Aug. 4 show a


6.6 percent decrease with the aver-
age price at $6.36 per gallon. That's
down a little from $6.40 that was
reported in July, he said. The sales of
NFC not from concentrate juice
went up 0.5 percent. Reconstituted
orange juice sales are closer to last
year's price, but'sales are not being
recognized by the consumers, the
data shows.
Grapefruit juice sales have
dropped 9.3 percent on a $6.99 per
gallon average price, he said.


Mark Lehigh and his daughter, Tristen, shared a bicycle Saturday at the annual Tour de Tow event held in Bartow. They were the father/
daughter winners in the Artistic Motion drawing at the event. They will appear in an artistic composition and be featured on a poster and
T-shirt. More than 225 people took part in the event, an all-time record number of participants. They came in from all over the state. "People
came in from all over the state, Virginia Condello, director of communications at the Bartow Chamber of Commerce, said. "It was a win-win, a
very positive event for downtown Bartow. The shops helped make the event a success. The event helped bring people into the shops."




Violence in media


The causes of i ,,,
youth violence
are multifaceted,
including such
variables as pov-
erty, family psycho-
pathology, child
abuse, exposure to
domestic and com-
munity violence,
substance abuse
and other psychi-
atric disorders that Shandale Terrell
contaminate our
communities.
It is imperative for parents and guard-
ians to know that children infused in
media are steeped in acts of aggression
which can increase anti-social action
and bullying.


The more aggressive behavior children
see, the more it becomes a satisfactory
method for them to cause conflict in the
school setting. Terrifying images, intense
peril, loud noises and above all, gore,
create all sorts of disturbances, including
increased anxiety and sleep interruption.
The educational setting
It's estimated that 97 percent of homes
have televisions and that more families
have televisions than telephones. The
typical child growing up in the United
States will view more than 100,000 acts
of violence, including more than 15,000
images of murder before age 18.
Violence in the media overflows into
a child's psyche, interrupting their
academic productivity in a school
setting. The topic of school violence is


one that affects all of society. Aside from
interfering with the learning process,
the long-range effects of school violence
affect us all. It is vital to the future of
our youth, that we decrease exposure to
violence in our local, state, national and
international communities.
Awareness of potentially violent
behavior and early intervention are
crucial components in helping a child
or children at risk. Equally important
is caring for children who have been
victims of school violence. Anti-violence
interventions and programs are readily
available in our schools and at commu-
nity outreach programs.

Middle School and is the chairman

Advisory Panel.

the CSX railroad crossing will be
shifted to theinside eastbound
lane. Westbound traffic will then
shift back to the westbound lanes
approximately 1,600 feet west of the
CSX railroad crossing. This tempo-
rary traffic configuration is expected
to last for approximately four weeks.
Motorists may see temporary de-
lays and are advised to use caution
and watch for construction workers
in the construction zone.
Among the improvements are
resurfacing the roadway with new
asphalt, widening, concrete ap-
proaches for existing bridges at CSX

The project consists of the removal
of contamination impacted soil from
along the old railroad bed located
along the east side of U.S. 98 and im-
mediately west of Fort Fraser Trail.
This week paving operations con-
tinue on U.S. 98 from Lyle Parkway
north to, County Road 540A between
8 p.m. and 6 a.m. For about two
weeks intermittent, temporary lane
closures on both northbound and
southbound lanes on U.S. 98 will be
required.
One lane of westbound Van
Fleet Drive from Wilson Avenue to
Broadway and one lane of Broadway
in both directions due north of Van
fleet will be closed after 9 p.m. for
concrete paving through Sept. 23.
One lane of eastbound Van Fleet
from Wilson Avenue to Walmart
Drive will be closed from 9 p.m.-
5:30 a.m. through Thursday, Sept. 20,
for drain work.
Access through the intersection
will be maintained, FDOT reports.
Work on new travel lanes, turn
lanes, curbs, sidewalks and drainage
continues behind barrier walls on
Broadway in Bartow from Van Fleet
to Manor Drive, and on westbound
Van Fleet from Walmart Drive to
Broadway.
With the Van Fleet entrance to Fort
Fraser Trail closed, people can enter
the trail from Wilson Avenue.
Access to businesses in the work
zone is being maintained, FDOT
reports.

The Bartow Northern Connector
project will required some lane
closures on U.S. Highway 17 from
9 a.m.-4 p.m. and 7 p.m.-6 a.m. of
the inside northbound lane and
alternating between the inside and
outside southbound lanes between
Crossover Road and State Road 60.
Lane closures will likely be from
9 a.m.-3 p.m. with possible closures
from 7 p.m.-6 a.m. on State Road 540
from west of Thornhill Road to east of
Thornhill Road. The FDOT is milling
and resurfacing the roadway, making
drainage improvements, working on
sidewalks, signalization, lighting and
signing and pavement markings.
This week new signalization along
the project corridor on State Road 60
from east of Alan Loop Road easterly
to west of Peace Creek continues. In
addition, the contractor will'be in-
stalling new drainage on State Road
60 at Old Bartow Road. There may
be intermittent lane closures during ,
these activities. This will be in effect
for about two weeks, FDOT reports.
On Canal Street in Mulberry, which
is State Road 60, from Southwest
Fifth Avenue to Diesel Road, a new
drainage system is being installed.
Repair to the roadway shoulder and
embankment, milling and resurfac-
ing the roadway and guardrail repair
will occur. Lane
closures will continue during the

Citrus department turns

attention to the future

New director crafts new mission statement


By JEFF ROSLOW
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
The Florida Department of Citrus, fo-
cusing on where it plans to go and what
it should be concentrating on, came up
with a new mission statement as it starts
its new year.
At its first public meeting of the fiscal
year on Sept. 12, newly-hired Executive
Director Douglas Ackerman presented
the mission statement which commis-
sioners OK'd. All members approved the
change except Commissioner Michael J.
Garavaglia, Jr., who was absent.
The new mission statement is
"Maximize consumer demand for
Florida citrus products to ensure the
sustainability and economic well-being
of the Florida citrus grower, the citrus
industry and the State of Florida."
It changes from the old statement,
which has been in place since 2005:
"Grow the market for the Florida citrus
industry to enhance the economic well-
being of the Florida citrus grower, citrus
industry and the State of Florida."
"We sat down to figure out where we
are and where we want to go and how to
get there," Ackerman said.
There-are two goals with the new
mission statement. They are to maxi-
mum consumer demand and ensure
sustainability.
He said the thing he keeps hearing is
the growers want to "make sure this in-
dustry is here for our kids and our grand-
kids," he said. "That's sustainability."
Commissioner Vernon "VC."
Hollingsworth, III, said he.was a bit
nervous about using that term.


"I don't want to change anything (in
the statement), but I have a cause and
concern as an agriculturist and that is
the deal when I see the word sustainabil-
ity," he said. "Most of the time when I see
sustainability it's not whether the farmer
makes a profit."
He said farmers are not simply inter-
ested in sustaining but to grow and be as
productive as possible.
"That word has two meanings and that
word makes me nervous," he said.
Ackerman said he understands that
concern but he said he is realizes the
goal is longevity of the industry.
Ackerman said there are seven guiding
values behind the consumer statement:
accountability, expertise, principled
ethical standards, collaboration, focus,
innovation and people.
The next steps for the industry to
take are to develop a metrics advisory
committee to develop and decide on
the proper measures for success
and begin reporting, Ackerman told
commissioners.
While commissioners unanimously
voted in favor of changing the mis-
sion statement, Hollingsworth told
Ackerman, who has been executive
director for just a few months, that they
are currently riding on his word for the
future of the DOC.
"I also want to take your word to the
relevance of this and loyalty to Florida
citrus," he said. "We'll take your word
so we can move forward that this is a
high priority and what we are going to
realize."
"That is our priority, but you're going
to have to see that," Ackerman said.


Deniseim iswell p ar t eniaSa t


"As a fifth generation resident of Florida's Heartland, I understand
the needs of our communities. My varied professional career, as a
nurse, small business operator, and citrus grower gives me a wide.
perspective of the challenges faced in these fields. "I' got involved in
the public arena to help shape a government that's responsive, not
intrusive. I have worked hard to meet the challenges of the last few
years and balance our state budget without raising taxes. With your
vote on November 6, I will keep working hard for you in Tallahassee."

DeSoto does just enough


to nip Frostproof


A total of 5 touchdowns scored

during the second quarter


By BRIAN ACKLEY
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
Plenty of Terrell Gordon, with just
enough of Jordan Washington and
Zackery Beeles sprinkled in, was the
right recipe for the DeSoto Bulldogs
Friday night as they traveled north to
defeat Frostproof, 22-21.
Both teams entered the game unde-
feated, and while Frostproof dominated
early, DeSoto appeared to wear the host
Bulldogs out as the second half wore
on, ending the game on a 14-play drive
that ate the final 7:02 off the clock to
seal the win.
Neither teams scored in the final.
12 minutes, and Desoto had the only
points of the third quarter, a safety
midway through the frame when a
punt snap went out of the Frostproof
endzone, and a 10-yard touchdown
run from Gordon, capping a nine-
play, 80 yard drive with five seconds
to play in the third. Gordon carried
on eight of those plays, and and
Washington had one run for 22 yards
as well.
Those turned out to be the only
points of the final two periods, after a
crazy second quarter which highlighted


the running and throwing talents of
Frostproof quarterback Xavier Gaines, a
freshman.
DeSoto opened the scoring on the
night in what turned out to be a wild
period a total of five touchdowns
were scored thanks to a Frostproof
miscue. A bad punt snap led to a block,
and the visitors set up shop at the
Frostproof 31 late in the first quarter.
All 31-yards were negotiated by Terrell
Gordon, including runs of eight and
nine yards on the drive that lasted just
2:27. Gordon went up the gut from
five yards out to cap the short six-play
drive, putting DeSoto up 7-0 with 10:29
to go in the second quarter.
Frostproof got that right back on its
ensuing possession, needing just seven
plays to go 75 yards, capped on a 45-
yard scamper by Cecil Cherry to tie the
game at 7 with 7:11 to play before inter-
mission, and took the lead less than
five minutes later when Gaines, who at
6-3, 210 is already getting serious major
college looks, lofted a perfect 40-yard
spiral to Daniel Knighten. With the
point after kick, Frostproof was up 14-7
with 2:31 to go before intermission.

That was short lived, however,
as Desoto's Dequan Richardson
broke free up the middle on the
kickoff, eluding his last tackler at the
Frostproof 45, for a 90-yard touch-
down return. The extra point kick
was missed, however, leaving DeSoto
down 14-13 with 2:16 remaining in
the second quarter.
But the hosts were not done, driv-
ing from their own 40 in the final two
minutes, with Gaines hitting Reggie
Allen deep in the right corner of the
endzone to put Frostproof up 21-13 at
intermission. The Bulldogs rolled up
312 total yards of offense in the first
half, while DeSoto had 75, all on the
ground.
The Bulldogs actually scored, what
would have been their fourth TD of the
quarter, on a 40-yard play with no time
on the clock when Gaines scampered
40 yards, but the TD was called back
on a questionable block-in-the-back
penalty.
Both clubs came into the game
with 2-0 marks, although both of
DeSoto's wins came at home and both
of Frostproof's came on the road.


Each has a win over Sebring. DeSoto
opened its regular season with a
28-6 win over the Blue Streaks, while
Frostproof prevailed on the road,
18-9, in week two.
DeSoto will open its district schedule
on the road next Friday night against
Palmetto.
Frostproof will stay.at home to
celebrate Homecoming next Friday at
Faris Brannen Stadium with a
7 p.m. kick-off against Mulberry.

County gets new board



to boost arts, culture

Theater's executive director to represent city


By BILL ROGERS
BROGERS@LAKEWALESNEWS.COM

Arts and culture are ways to draw
tourists and Polk County is stepping
up its effort to do just that. And,
Frostproof will have a voice in that
initiative.
The county has created a
Tourist Development Council Arts
and Culture Committee. A total
of 22 people, including County
Commissioner Melony Bell, who is
chairing it, will serve on the new
committee. The first meeting will
be heldat 11:30 a.m. Wednesday,
Sept. 26 at the Lake Myrtle .Sports
Complex in Auburndale. The address
is 2701 Lake Myrtle Park Road.
The committee is rather large and
Bell, who selected the members,
said she made it that way for a
reason.
The sports marketing board has 21
members and Bell said she wanted
"to mirror" the arts committee after
the sports board.
During next week's meeting there
will be a discussion about the
Sunshine Law and that members will
have to abide by. There will also be
an explanation of the TDC's mission,
goals and objectives
In choosing the members, Bell
said she tried to include every city
and tried to make it balanced be-
tween Lakeland and Winter Haven.
Many of them are business people.
Members include: Jamie Beckett
of Winter Haven; Dave Conner of


Lake Wales, Richard DeAngelas
of Lakeland, David Grisham of
Lakeland, Kay Hutzelman of
Frostproof, Samantha Lane of Winter
Haven, Glenda Losh of Bartow, Jim
Malless of Lakeland, Meri Mass, Tina
Peak of Lake Wales, David Petre of
Winter Haven, Robert Puterbaugh
of Lakeland, Cindy Rodriguez of
Bartow, Harriet Rust of Davenport,
Greg Ruthven of Lakeland, Don
Selvage of Lakeland, Deanne
Tanner of Winter Haven, Rob Tate
of Lakeland, Susan Till Waddell of
Winter Haven and Lori Delk Walker
of Lakeland.
Myrtice Young of Bartow is a
liaison member. She is a non-voting
member because she is a county
employee. Young is the historic
preservation manager,
According to Bell, people want
the arts. With Florida Polytechnic
coming to Polk, increasing the op-
portunity for the public to enjoy the
arts and culture will be good for the
county.
"We just have to market it right,"
Bell said. "People have to know
about it.
"It's all about making cash regis-
ters ring," the commissioner added.
Bell, who lives in Fort Meade, is the
commissioner that represents the
Frostproof district.
Hutzelman is a big supporter of
the arts, in addition to serving as the
city's mayor. She is active with the
Frostproof Art League, and is execu-
tive direct or of the Ramon Theater.

Preparing for the Powder Puff


Varsity running back Trevis Herrington helps Whitley Maloy
understand the ins and outs of the backfield as she gets ready
for the annual Powder Puff football game, which pits Frost-
proof juniors against Bulldog seniors.


Reagan Mantel (pink) takes a handoff from QB Shirley Miller (blue) as Jamarius Larkin (red) looks on.
The annual homecoming game between the junior girls and senior girls (we're assuming they practiced
too, but they weren't around for our photographers) is scheduled for Thursday night at the stadium.

Of course, the guys will be switching roles as well, playing the part of the cheerleaders. And, as
the guys know, practice makes perfect, so Bulldog cheerleader Taylar Chaney worked with a
couple of cheerleading prospects teaching them the difficult "Herkie Jump."

September 19, 2012





By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
For all intents and purposes, the
Polk County Commissioners unani-
mous vote approving the Fiscal Year
2012-13 $1.31 billion budget was
anticlimactic. For yet another.year,
there will be no increases in the
village rate.
The budget is a $20.4 million
reduction from 2011-12 budget.
According to a July 10 letter from
the County Manager's office, the
reduction "reflects the continuing
sluggish economic recover, lower
property values, and spending down
of reserves set aside for capital
projects."
,Continuing, the letter further
stated the Property Appraiser
report on July 1 revealed "a county-
wide property value reduction of
4.91 percent with a reduction in the
unincorporated area of
4.59 percent.'-
Freeman's letter went on to state
that by keeping the same millage
rate, coupled with lower property
values, the budgeted ad valorem
revenue for FY 2012-13 will drop
$8.2 million. In addition, the general
fund operating value will decrease
by $6.5 million. Finally, over the
past six years, 4d valorem rev-
enues have declined $97.5 million
(37.8 percent), and that the FY
2012-13 taxable value "is less than
FY 2005-06 levels."
Other than a computer glitch that
froze all computers approximately
30 minutes into the session, the
hearing and subsequent votes (all
which were unanimous), were dis-
pensed with little, if any, discussion
among commissioners. With one no-
table exception, that of the storm-
water assessment proposal (which
was Item No. 2 on the agenda) no
one from the public commented.
As for the stormwater assessment,
County Attorney Michael Craig sug-
gested it be the first item brought
before the public, to which BOCC
Chairman Sam Johnson agreed.
Glenn Reynolds, who was


invited to come up to the podium
by Johnson, joked whether being
recognized by name was necessarily
a good thing.
Reynolds prefaced his comments by
reminding commissioners he had spo-
ken at the Sept. 6 meeting, and that
he had come back with suggestions
because "I don't believe in just criticiz-
ing," he said. He presented several.'
"The county should establish a
citizens advisory committee, in
order to draft a fair and comprehen-
sive ordinance, as well as advise on
how to implement the ordinance,"
said Reynolds. "Regular citizens
should be included on the advi-
sory committee, not just the usual
special interests that sit on these
committees."
Because he believed property val-
ues and the economy will eventually
rise, Reynolds called on the county
to cap the budget of $1.3 billion
with some sort of inflationary mul-
tiplier such as the Consumer Price
Index. In addition, he called for the
Stormwater Mitigation Fund be set
up as a CRA. Another of his sugges-
tions was for the county to return to
a zero-based budget.
Commissioners declined to com-
ment on any of the suggestions.
Following comments from sev-
'eral others in the general public,
Johnson called for a motion to
remove the stormwater assess-
ment from the proposed budget.
Commissioner Todd Dantzler made
the motion that Commissioner
Melony Bell seconded. The vote was
unanimous.
After listening to the rates on
several items on the budget, the
main proposal, adopting the millage
rate for FY 2012-13 came before the
BOCC. After listening to Todd Bond,
Director of Budget and Management
Services, commissioners voted to
leave the millage rate of 6.8665
unchanged; this will be the sixth
consecutive year at that rate. The
rollback rate, said Bond, was 7.2812
mills. As a result, ad valorem tax
revenues for FY 2012-13 is projected
to be $159,576,567, which would be

development efforts, a DOT spokes-
man explained.
This includes participating in
healthy initiatives to encourage
and increase walking and bicy-
cling, transportation events and
campaigns, offering incentives
like preferred parking, free transit
subsidies, onsite company shuttles,


bike racks/showers, teleworking
programs, along with demonstrating
a high percentage of employee and
student participation.
These include programs that
match the Best Workplaces for
Commuters criteria.and significantly
reduce the number of drive-alone

The Best Workplaces for
Commuters (BWC) designation
bestows national recognition and
an elite designation to employers
offering outstanding commuter ben-
efits, as set by the National Center
for Transit Research and the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency.
Commuter Services Outreach team


members worked with partners to
establish commuter benefits, de-
velop an employer plan, determine
application eligibility, and assisted
partners with completing the BWC
applications. What beganwith just
two partners now includes nearly 20
qualified partners, all pursuing the
BWC award.
Polk State College was the first
college in Polk County to be awarded
for their efforts by offering a variety
of commuter benefits on April 23.
The awards were presented to Polk
State College President Eileen
Holden by Lakeland Mayor and
Commuter Services Ambassador
Gow Fields, also an alumnus of


the college. Other local officials
attending the event were County
Commissioner Bob English,
chairman of Lakeland Area Mass
Transit, and Winter Haven City
Commissioner Jamie Beckett.

Fortune 500 employer partner in
Polk County to achieve the regional
Commuter Services Gold Level status
and awarded the National Best
Workplaces for Commuters "elite
designation for their outstanding
commuter benefits." An official hew
bus service dedication and com-
muter awards ceremony was held

5K run/walk set at Wellness Expo


The Haines City Parks and Recreation
Department plans a 5K run/walk on
Oct. 13, followed by its annual Wellness
.Expo. Registration for the run/walk
starts at 7 a.m., and the run/walk will
begin at 7:30 a.m. The Wellness Expo
begins 9 a.m. directly after the run/walk
and lasts until noon.
Both events will be held at the Lake
Eva Banquet Hall, 799 Johns Ave., Haines
City. The expo is seeking vendors for
the WellnessExpo. The cost is $25 for a
space. The public is invited for free health
screenings and information pertaining to
health and wellness.
To learn more, call events coordinator
Holly Carter at 863-421-9963.

Nearly 760 physical given
Lake Wales Medical Center provided
more than $24,000 worth of free sports
physical and screenings to student
athletes throughout the area over the
summer. '
From May and August, nearly 760
physical were provided by LWMC physi-
cians and staff to students at Lake Wales
High School, Frostproof High SchooLand
Webber International University.
Three physicians and 11 employee vol-
unteers from LWMC helped 140 student
physical at Lake Wale's High School in
May and June. In Frostproof, three LWMC
physicians and eight staff members
helped with 120 student physical. In


August, LWMC assisted with 270 student
physical atWIU over a four-day period.
This included blood chemistry screenings
and diagnostics for student athletes as
needed, all provided at no cost to the stu-
dents or the university. In all, 216 hours
were donated by LWMC staff members-
and physicians.
_ "We volunteer our services and time
for the benefit of the students," said Chris
Jessee, who headed up the physical and
serves as Director of Rehabilitation at
LWMC. "We're just trying to do the right
thing. It's part of the hospital's commit-
ment to reaching out to our community
and being a part of the community. This
was all possible due to the kindness and
dedication of our physicians and employ-
ees who volunteer their time"

LRMC seeks to add
rehab center
The Lakeland Regional Medical Center
is seeking from the state to establish a
rehabilitation unit with 32 beds in the'
hospital, it said.
It applied for a certificate of need
from the Florida Agency for Health Care
Administration last week. It said it is
doing this to reduce the required travel
distances and to help it gain optimal
access to meet their healthcare needs.
LRMC is the county's only trauma
center and is a designated Primary
.Stroke Center. It treats patients with


complex neurological and other major
injuries, such as traumatic brain injury-
and hip fracture, as well as, brain at-
tacks, like stroke. By adding an Inpatient
Rehabilitation Unit, the hospital will be
able to extend its quality of care by offer-
ing multidisciplinary therapy services to
help patients reduce physical and mental
limitations caused by these conditions.
"Having the highest quality of reha-
bilitative care is critical after complex
illness or injuries," said Elaine Thompson,
president and CEO of Lakeland Regional
Health Systems Inc.
She added, "By having an Inpatient
Rehabilitation Unit at LRMC, patients
will not have to endure the disruption of
leaving one hospital setting to get needed
care in another hospital setting. Instead
they can remain in a single comprehen-
sive medical center, in their own commu-
nity, at LRMC."

Community lectures set
Watson Clinic's series of free commu-

FAduEELINGt Day Health Care open house Thursday



Adult Day Health Care open house Thursday


Lake Wales facility offers services to help elders,


caregivers


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
There's an affordable day care
center that can help the elderly and
the needs of the people who take care
of them in Polk County and on
Sept. 20 people can learn about it.
It's the Polk County Adult Day
Health Care Center and the facility
in Lake Wales has scheduled an open
house from 3-5 p.m. on Thursday,
Sept. 20. The facility is at 305 W.
Central Ave.
"The caregivers are shocked to find
out that Medicare doesn't pay for
things, and they're very expensive,"
said Chris Wilcox, of the Alzheimer's
Association Florida Gulf Coast
Chapter Polk County office. Wilcox is
one who will be on hand at the open
house and has been spreading the
word about the little-known facility.
The brochure for the adult care
center lists the daily cost as $70.
Compared to nursing homes, which
can cost more than $200 a day, or
home care, which can cost $20 per
hour, the prices are not only more
affordable but they allow a patient
to live at home and allow the fam-
ily member caregiver time the
person usually needs.
"Adult day care is beneficial for the
caregiver," Wilcox said. "It helps give
the caregiver time to regroup."
"A lot of people don't know the
burden," said Mike Mason, Polk
County Veterans Services supervisor.
"It's extreme. I've got this option here
and drop them off for a day and can
take care of things or get some sleep.
It's a big plus."
The adult day health day centers
have facilities in Lake Wales, Bartow,
Haines City and Lakeland. The open
house has been scheduled to let
people know about the option. It
mostly serves elderly people, but can
serve anyone who is 18 arid older and
lives in Polk County.
Donna Kay, the adult day care
program manager, said the program
takes care of one man who is 27 and
another who is-23, but, she added,
"a majority of the people are 60 and
older."
Faye Dovniing, who helps people
find out about the day care centers,
and Kay both said the centers are
somewhat of a secret and that's be-
cause most people don't know what's.
offered until they need it. Social
workers know about them and some
doctors do but the key is to remind
health care workers that this exists.
There are many county-run adult
day care centers in Florida. The
Polk program has been awarded
many times by the Health Care,

Administration that inspects it,and
calls it a model for the state. It has
also been awarded by the National
Adult Day Care Center in Washington,
D.C. Existing since 1984 and run by,
Kay since then, it operated last year
on $2.6 million from the county's gen-
eral fund. This year, like other county
departments, it is proposed to be cut
to operating on $2.5 million.
Seeing the center, one would
not know it is a health care facility,
though there are doctors, nurses and
health care available all the time.
Kay said its look is done this way on
purpose.
In order to get the word out about
the day care center, Downing is
helping it undertake a promotional
campaign. Billboards have been
plated around the county, and there
are advertising campaigns and orga-
nizations letting people know about
the centers.
"A lot of veterans don't know what
options are available to them,"
Mason said. "We started this new
show called Today's Veteran and we
do shows on education benefits, em-
ployment benefits with Polk Works.
On this, (adult day care center) we
have to get this information out."
To Wilcox one of the most impor-
tant things this facility can bring to
a family is having the person stay
at home,. It increases the quality of
life both for the patient and for the
caregiver.
"For the most part, caregivers want
to keep their loved one at home,"
Wilcox said. "As much as they want to
keep them at home, if they don't get
the services there's a good possibility
that they'll get into a Catch 22."
Wilcox added, "There's a fine line
to staying at home. If folks don't
get the social connection and make
friends, that's really why it's crucial
to keep the social network."
Wilcox said in a lot of cases the
caregiver can pass away before the
patient because of the stress it puts
on their life.
"And, it's definitely good for the
person with dementia because they
know to put like individuals together.
That could keep them away from a
live-in facility. The adult day care
program is really well established."
For information about the day
care centers or the open house call
863-519-8146.

The probiotics story


DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My question is
about probiotics. I heard that it is good
to take them when you're on antibiotics,
to replace antibodies that the antibiotics
destroy. Then I heard it is good to take
them all the time. Please inform me and
other readers if we should be taking
probiotics. PL.
ANSWER: Probiotics are living bacte-
ria or fungi added to foods or put in pills
in the hope that these good microbes
will become the predominant organ-
isms of the digestive tract and will cure
illnesses caused by bad microbes. Some
of the good germs are lactobacillus,
bifidobacterium and saccharomyces.
The illness you describe is
Clostridium difficile infection, which
also goes by the names antibiotic-asso-
ciated colitis and pseudomembranous
colitis. In this condition, antibiotics
taken for some purpose not related to
the digestive tract kill off good bacteria.
That gives the bad bacteria a chance
to become the majority bacteria. The
bad bacterium is C. difficile. It leads
to diarrhea, which can be profuse.
Stopping the antibiotic usually stops the
diarrhea. If it doesn't, then antibiotics
that specifically target C. difficile are
prescribed. Probiotics have been used
for this condition.


TO YOUR
GOOD
HEALTH


Dr. Paul
Donohue


Probiotics also are used to combat
constipation, to calm irritable bowel
syndrome and to cure a condition called
bacterial vaginosis. They have been
proposed as well for ulcerative colitis
and Crohn's disease.
An exciting new discovery is that
probiotics might reduce artery harden-
ing arteriosclerosis, the underlying
problem for most heart attacks and
many strokes. The reputed effect comes
from the body's decreased production
of a substance called TMAO (trimethyl-
amine N-oxide). If this theory proves to
be true, it will be a major breakthrough
in curing some major diseases.
Taking probiotics while taking antibiotics
has been proposed by some as a preven-
tive step for protection against C. difficile


infection. It's not standard practice.
You don't need to take probiotics on a
regular basis.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have never
seen you recommend acupuncture for
treatment of osteoarthritis.
It does wonders for joints, especially
the knees. It takes several treatments
before the effect is felt. D.R.
ANSWER: In Canada and the U.S.,
acupuncture is called alternative
medicine. In the Far East, it has been
standard medicine for many centuries.
The theory is that meridians, 14 major
linear paths, exist on the body. The acu-
puncturist knows where these lines are
and which organs are related to which
meridians. Thin, metallic needles are
inserted into precise places on specific
meridians based on the patient's com-
plaints. Stimulating the needles activates
the production of internal energy that
blunts pain and promotes healing.
I haven't said much about acupunc-
ture because I don't know much about
it. I know doctors who have incorporat-
ed it into their practices, and 42 states,
along with the District of Columbia,
award licenses to practice acupuncture
if the candidate has fulfilled those states'
requirements.
I'm glad you've obtained relief from


your osteoarthritis through acupunc-
ture. I don't believe it hurts anyone, and
I do believe it helps some.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Does anyone
make a home cholesterol device that
gives you a reading of your cholesterol?
If so, where do I get one? Should diabet-
ics wear socks? What material should
they be?
Are there any foods, vitamins or
supplements that lower blood sugar and
cholesterol at the same time? J.
ANSWER: I don't know of any device
that provides home testing of choles-
terol. Diabetics have to be careful about
feet infections. They don't have to wear
socks. It they prefer to wear them, the
common sock materials are up to them
to choose. And finally I don't know of
any food, vitamin or supplement that
lowers both cholesterol and blood sugar
simultaneously. You pitched me three
curveballs, and I struck out.
Dr Donohue regrets that he is unable
to answer individual letters, but he will
incorporate them in his column when-
ever possible. Readers may write him or
request an order form of available health
newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando,

No more breeding like rodents


A compound originally conceived for
anti-cancer treatments appears to be
effective in controlling fertility (at least
in test mice), making it the latest and
perhaps most promising prospect for a
male birth con urol pill.
The compound, called JQ1, inhibits
both sperm production and sperm
mobility. "Both of these are needed
for fertility, but JQ1 prevents both,"
said Qinglei Li, an assistant professor
in Texas A&M's College of Veterinary
Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
A male contraceptive pill has long
been sought, all for naught. Recent stud-
ies.suggest a pent-up demand: Roughly
70 percent of men surveyed said they
would be willing to take a birth control
pill if it was available.
Contrary to female contraception
measures that often interfere with hor-
monal balances and result in adverse
side effects, Li said JQ1 appeared to
produce no side effects in the male
mice. Once injections were stopped, the
male mice resumed normal reproduc-
tion rates in seemingly good health.
Researchers must still figure out how to
create an oral form of JQ1.
"This is an exciting step in male contra-
ception," Li said. "A compound with more
specificity will be needed before clinical.
trials can be done for humans. It does not
mean a male birth control just yet, but it is
a great step forward in that direction."

your individual needs. You'll need to bring evidence

Let your Real Estate agent know that you want to
make an "offer", which is a written document, that
lets the seller know what you are willing to pay for
the property and if there are any conditions that
' need to be addressed. Once all parties agree to the
terms and conditions of the offer and fuly execute
the agreement, it will become a contract. The
contract is a legally binding document that you
will be signing and dating. Due to it being legally
binding you may want to have a lawyer review it
to be sure you are comfortable with everything.
Your offer should have a time limit for the seller
to accept it, reject it, or make a counter-offer. If a
counter-offer is made, you will have some time to
respond. Often, several offers go back and forth until
an offer is accepted, or one party decides to end
negotiations. Once the final offer is accepted by both
parties, you can then move forward in completing the
purchase.
