The citrus industry got welcome news this
week.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has
awarded a $9 million grant to help support citrus
research to eradicate citrus greening, an insect-
carried disease that threatens an industry and
our way of life in the entire region.
The Florida citrus industry creates a $9 billion
annual economic impact, employing nearly
76,000 people, and covering more than 500,000
acres. The $9 million grant is a bargain com-
pared to the financial boost citrus historically
delivers.
Stopping citrus greening or HLB, a bacte-
rial disease that attacks trees, is crucial. Citrus


Our Viewpoint

greening is endemic to the state and has caused
billions of dollars in losses over the past five
years. "This is a tremendous opportunity to
advance research into citrus greening so we
can save our $9 billion industry," Florida Citrus
Mutual VP/CEO MichaelW. Sparks said in a
press release." ... the key to beating this insidi-
ous disease lies in the laboratory."
The $9 million to finance that lab work will
come from the USDA's Specialty Crop Research
Initiative, a Farm Bill program designed to
promote specialty crop research, the press


release said. The funding will support a five year
project, submitted by the Citrus Research and
Development Foundation, exploring the use of
biological controls to neutralize the Asian Citrus
Psyllid, the small bug that vectors HLB.
The $9 million SCRI grant augments $2 mil-
lion in funding the USDA appropriated to the
Agricultural Research Service facility in Ft. Pierce
earlier this year to study citrus greening.
Combining research efforts and techniques
appears to be a wise approach to a complex
problem that, left unchecked, could cripple the
citrus industry. We believe spending $11 million
dollars to preserve 76,000 jobs and the resulting
economic impact is a responsible decision.


Letters to the c.-lit44-

If you vote, please take it seriously


A recent letter to the Editor "BE
HAPPY, DON'T WATCH FOX NEWS"
Certainly has some merit. It reminds me
of song, "Don't Worry, Be Happy" or for
those of you old enough to remember
Manard G Krebbs famous saying of
Dobie Gillis fame, "What, me Worry?"
For those of us that do worry about our
country, our ever escalating unemploy-
ment, our top heavy welfare programs,
our shrinking standing in the world
while we give vast sums of money we
don't have to buy favor. Our friend and
enemies burning our flag, killing our


people while our administration tells
us different stories. Our broken/failing
Medical system, our broken Social
Security System, our failing Medicare WIW'. RE-P ARE
system, a new "Affordable Care Act" ALLIl* ie
(Talk about a contradiction of terms)
which defies logic. The list goes on '/
and on. Guns, not guns, thousands of
Automatic Machine Guns, given away
by our Administration to Mexican drug
cartel, not tracked, while the admin--
istration complains about Gun Shows

GOLLEDGEI 5 __ --._


Robbed of representation by a rubber stamp


Just 10 of Florida's 160 legislators
voted recently on a $58-million budget
amendment that carries large policy
implications for citizens across the
state. And although the change will
affect constituents in my district, they
had no representation in this decision
- or any other decisions passed by the
Legislative Budget Commission. When
you enter the ballot box, your vote is
supposed to have the same weight as
any other citizen's. "One person, one
vote" is essential to our republican sys-
tem of government. For this reason, the
U.S. Supreme Court says both houses of
state legislatures must be comprised of
voting districts with equal populations.
But by allowing only a handful of
lawmakers on the Legislative Budget
Commission to make important
policy decisions, our state is increas-
ing the value of some citizens' votes,
while completely robbing others of
representation.
The Legislative Budget Commission
was originally established for a rational
reason. Because Florida's part-time
legislature meets in session only 60 days
a year, small budget issues can arise
later that need minor legislative fixes.


The commission seven members
from the House, seven members from
the Senate is there to pass these
small changes.
For example, in August the commis-
sion approved transferring $59,032 from
an expense fund to a deferred-payment
fund so that the Department of Juvenile
Justice could improve its outdated
telecom and data equipment.
For a decade, the commission
performed as intended. But recently,
legislative leadership has begun to
abuse the powers held by its hand-
selected commission members.
Undeterred by a court ruling that
prohibits the legislature from changing
policy through budget language, the
Legislative Budget Commission last


week approved a major policy change
- privatizing prison health operations
with only six legislators voting in
favor.
Last year, the courts struck down
similar end-arounds designed to
privatize general operations and health
services at state prisons, saying such
large policy changes must be made in
stand-alone laws, not through budget
language.
The legislature followed up by killing
leadership's attempt to pass a stand-
alone prison privatization law with a
razor-thin, 21-19 Senate vote. The bill
failed after weeks of delay and arm
twisting because proponents were
unable to show that privatization would
save money.
There may be good arguments for
privatizing healthcare services at our
prisons. Perhaps it would improve
healthcare for inmates and save the
state money, but it also may result in
reduced care and higher costs.
Regardless, last week the Legislative
Budget Commission ducked scrutiny
and privatized prison healthcare after
an hour of discussion among just 10
members, seven of whom were not even


there in person.
History gives us reason to be skeptical
of recent commission moves. Last year,
it was given authority to approve a plan
to migrate all state agency emails into a
single system. The plan was supposed
to save money, but commission mem-
bers complained the projected savings
didn't add up. Still, they voted for the
deal and signed a $70 million contract
with Xerox.
The deal was so poorly reviewed that
the legislature reversed the decision
and removed all future funding for the
contract. Nevertheless, this summer
Gov. Rick Scott asked the commission
to overrule the 160-member legislature
and fund a $10-million contact.
The Legislative Budget Commission
also plays a significant role in approv-
ing hundreds of millions of dollars for
cash incentives to corporations. These
corporate-welfare deals come with se-
cret project names and promises of job
creation. But the recent news of Digital
Domain's (aka Bumblebee) bankruptcy
shows how poorly our policy of picking
business winners and losers works.

good season.
"As always Ben Hill Griffin, Inc. will
be shipping high quality fresh Florida
citrus grown, harvested and packed by
a great team," he added.
The USDA is expected to release its
first official crop estimated on Oct. 11.
Several independent analysts have
pegged the number to be between 155
and 165 million boxes for the upcom-
ing season.
But, the new season comes with
the news backdrop that Florida citrus
production costs are the highest in
history and could continue to climb
as growers battle exotic diseases:
That was the focus of a presentation


by a well-known citrus economist at
the International Citrus and Beverage
Conference last week in Clearwater
Beach.
Ron Muraro of the University
of Florida Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences said citrus
production costs have increased more
in the past eight years than any time
period in four decades.
He reported statewide, growers are
spending up to an average of $1,700
an acre on disease management, irri-
gation, fertilizer and tree re-plantings.
That's up from $771 an acre just eight
years ago. In some regions, growers
are spending more than $2,100 an
acre.
The news came as no surprise to
the industry which is locked in a
battle with several diseases including
canker, black spot and HLB.


"We are lucky fruit prices have been
firm over the past two seasons be-
cause growers are spending more and
more to keep these diseases at bay,"
said Michael W. Sparks, executive VP/
CEO of Florida Citrus Mutual. "We
are doing a good job managing them
however it is expensive and cuts into a
grower's bottom line."
The IFAS report blames the
increased costs in part on world
demand for fertilizer and high energy
and chemical costs. Find the entire
presentation at http://conference.ifas.

The Florida citrus industry creates
a $9 billion annual economic impact,
employing nearly 76,000 people, and
covering more than 500,000 acres.
Polk County is Florida's largest citrus
producer, with some 80,000 acres of
land dedicated to growing.

School Board concerned over November referendums


Voter approval on tax amendments


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

There are 11 referendums on
November's ballot, and more than
several of them are of concern to Polk
County Public Schools District board
members (if not the entire education
system statewide)..Those concerns
were expressed by board member,
Tim Harris at the Sept. 25 work ses-
sion to Wendy Dodge, Director of
Governmental Affairs for the schools
district.
"Amendments three and eight
possibly have the most impact,"
Dodge told the school board. If ap-
proved, Amendment Three State
Government Revenue Limitation -
would impose a stricter formula for
calculating the revenue limit. It would
be based on annual population growth
and inflation, instead of personal
income. Opponents fear this would af-
fect spending on necessary services like
schools and public safety (according


to a flyer distributed by the League Of
Women Voters of Florida 2012 Special
Edition Voter Guide), while proponents
say it is need to cap government
spending.
Amendment Eight would repeal a 126
year old prohibition funding religious
institutions. Known as the "No Aid"
provision, states funds will not be
spent directly or indirectly in support
of any entity that promotes religion.
As it relates to school funding, in the
past, religiously-affiliated schools were
deemed ineligible. A yes vote will repeal
that restriction, which will (according
to the flyer) "allow parents to remove
students from failing public schools
and send them to private schools
at taxpayer expense." Opponents
argue money will be diverted from
public schools and blur the separation
between church and state.
I "Either way, it's asking for us to
reduce services to the citizens," said
Harris. His tone of voice made it clear
he was being sarcastic.
School Board Chairwoman Hazel


may mean loss of

Sellers asked Dodge what this would
cost if approved. Dodge said there
currently are 2.5 million students in
Florida public schools. If Amendment
Eight passes, it will raise the total to 3
million. From there, the state will have
two choices on how to fund. Either
take the existing amount of funds and
further divide it, or add another $2
billion to the budget.
Harris expressed concern whether
there would be language that called for
equal accountability regarding student
and school results. "Otherwise, there is
not a level playing field," he said.
Sellers called for the Board to take
an action of principle. She stated
the board has a choice whether to
adopt the resolution at the next board
meeting. She was backed in that call
by Board Member Lori Cunningham,
who also reinforced some of Harris'
concerns.
"We need to take a stance," said
Cunningham. "People don't under-
stand, there is going to be the need
of an additional $3 billion. Without


money to schools

accountability, those students may not
be ready if they come into the public
school systems."
Although Amendments Two, Nine
and 11 were also of concern, consensus
was these three items would pass with
little opposition. All three called for
additional homestead exemptions for:
Veterans Disabled Due to Combat
Injury
Surviving Spouse of Military Veteran
or First Responder
Low-income Seniors Who Maintain
Long-Term Residency on Property;
Equal to Assessed Value
If Amendment Two passes, school
districts and local governments could
lose a total of $15 million over the first
three years. If Amendment Nine passes,
an estimated $600,000 would be lost to
school districts and local governments
the first year. A yes vote on Amendment
11 could mean a reduction to local gov-
ernments across the state an estimated
$18.5 million combined over the first
two years.


Community garden growing in Bartow


23 trees growing at district office that employees planted


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT -

A visitor to the Polk County School
Board's Bartow campus may have
noticed some new landscaping.
There are 23 citrus trees scattered
on the Floral Avenue campus in
Bartow, including loquat, oranges,
lemons, limes, tangelos, tangerines, red
grapefruit and tangerines, all part of a
community garden.
If you look closely, you will also see
50 blueberry bushes spread in two
smart rows and hidden in the orna-
mental landscaping, you might even
find herbs like lavender.and rosemary.
It's a community garden.
It started in January when school
district employees like Brenda Taguri,
David Byrd, Walter Draffin and Tom
White got together to mull over ways to
do something for their fellow employees
and the community at large, Taguri said.
"We see this garden as having the
potential to improve employee health
in ways such as: increasing access
to fresh, healthy fruits & vegetables,
increasing access to fresh air and sun-
shine, and reducing stress through the
act of gardening," Taguri said. "We also
foresee the garden-fostering an atmo-
sphere that values teamwork, where we
take pride in our accomplishments."
The school board demographics
coordinator also said, "We also see this
gardening project as a good example
for both adults and the children we
serve in Polk County. We hope that we
will cultivate involvement and partner-
ships from the community."
She added the garden will let school
board employees "use our many talents
in a way that will benefit us all."
The garden started in March and
kicked off with the planting of the trees,
followed by the blueberry bushes and
herbs. She explained that the trees were


purchased with a $1,500 grant from
Mosaic and the blueberry bushes were
donated by Clear Springs and Mixon
Farms.
The group initially met on Saturdays
and their contingent was augmented
by area students earning community
service hours. "But some of us work in
the garden after work and on our lunch
hour," she said.
She explained that the gardening
group opted for the citrus trees first
because they would be less labor
intensive and then added the rows of
blueberries.
"Those were first, but we have also
tried some bucket planters. We started
with 15 planters but are down to 10
right now," she added.
Taguri said the group, as many as
40, is also planning to install raised
vegetable beds.
"We've got some surplus materials
from playgrounds including interlocking
timbers that will form the raised beds.
"We also have compost bins. They
are enclosed and are using scraps from
the complex cafeteria to augment the
yard waste collected," she explains.
The gardening group also uses
recycled water to water the fields and
trees.
"We figured out how to trap the
drainage from the air conditioners
that was just going into the ground
and now, we're using it to water the
gardens," she said. She adds that the
watering of freshly planted trees "was
a pain, since we had to haul buckets
and buckets of water," but it appears
to be successful since all the trees and
bushes have survived an unusually dry
spring. "We got a work out with that."
Taguri said the trees are interspersed
across the campus and the blueberry
patch is located by a pond on the cam-
pus grounds.
In addition to the trees and blueberries,

the community gardening group plans to _. (
expand their orchard to include avocado, '
mulberry and peach trees., .
"We'll just have to see from there," ,i
she said. "But, we're all looking forward
to raising some vegetables." She said a .
winter crop including collard greens is
next on the planting agenda. -
All employees of the district office -
were invited to join the gardening -
group when it was initially formed and
added that members of the community '-" -.. '
are also invited to join in this project.
"We welcome anyone who wants to .
join us," she said.
Anyone interested in participating
in the community garden may contact
Taguri at the school board office in A unique water gathering system was installed
Bartow or email her at brenda.taguri@ to use drainage from the air conditioning
polk-fl.net. systems to water the community garden.

culminate next Tuesday with the grand
opening of a parent resource room.


Paul Webb and Ramon Guillen weren't afraid
to get their hands a little dirty, and brows a
little sweaty, volunteering their time to do
landscaping work around the new Parent
Resource Room at Frostproof Elementary. The
room will have its grand opening next Tuesday
at 4:30 p.m. and the community is invited.


Federico Avellanedo and parents of students at Frostproof Elementary lent their time and talents
as well.


Noah Ogburn and George Wrye were among
the more than two dozen volunteers who
recently spent time working on the outside of
the new Parent Resource Room at Frostproof
Elementary. The spiffy new area, which will
serve as a way for parents to get informa-

students, will officially open next Tuesday.


Getting the grounds looking their best were kids from the Frostproof High School Interact
Club, as well as parents who volunteered their time to help create a new and improved Parent
Resource Room at Frostproof Elementary. The room's opening will be celebrated Tuesday.

Frostproof aims to get some of county's arts money


Mayor is part of

By BILL ROGERS
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
There is about $409,000 available for the
arts and cultural events in Polk County and
the group that will play a key role in how
the bed tax money is spent met for the first
time this week.
The Arts and Culture Committee, which
is an advisory committee of the Polk
County Tourist Development Council, held
its initial meeting last Wednesday at the
Polk County Tourism and Sports Marketing
offices in Auburndale. The committee was
established in July by a recommendation
from the TDC and through an amendment
to Ordinance 86-27 by the Polk County
Commission.
Commissioner Melony Bell, who chairs
the TDC, picked the 21 members of the
committee, which will make recommenda-
tions to the TDC regarding funding for arts
and cultural special events and marketing
initiatives. Bell is Frostproof's representa-
tive on the county commission, and
Frostproof Mayor Kay Hutzelman, who


new board that will help split up more than $400,000


is also executive director of the Ramon
Theater, is one of the members of the
committee.
The commissioner said she tried to
make it a representative group with people
from different cities in the county and
varying backgrounds.
"We have business people to serve on
this board so that we can make good deci-
sions about where our money is going to
grow the arts and culture," she said.
There has been money spent on the
arts and culture in the county in the past.
But Bell said there is now a designated
fund that "we know that so much money
is being spent on arts and culture in Polk
County."
"It is so important to our county not only
just for economic development but for
professionals to bring them here ..." Bell
said. "There is so much to offer here in Polk
County."
Polk County Tourism/Sports Marketing
Director Mark Jackson spoke to the
committee.
Jackson said tourism is a $1.1 billion


industry in Polk and employs 20,000
people.
Jackson encouraged members to take a
long-term view and asked, "Where do we
want to be in five years?"
He also suggested they should be
patient.
"This will be a process," he said, noting
that it will be tweaked along the way.
Kris Keprios, marketing manager for
Polk County Tourism/Sports Marketing
Director, showed the committee a draft of
the guidelines applicants will have to fol-
low in seeking funding; Polk is modeling its
guidelines after Sarasota County. The draft
includes eligibility, criteria for sponsorship
evaluation and the review process.
Linda McKinley, assistant county
attorney, told members the committee is
subject to the Sunshine Law and added
that "compliance is required."
The law prohibits any two members
from communicating, including telephone
calls and emails, about anything that pos-
sibly will come up at a meeting.
"It's a very serious issue," she said.


She also mentioned that members need
to be aware of conflicts of interest.
Committee member Dave Connor, a
Lake Wales attorney, said he was "very
satisfied" with the way the meeting went
and that some substantial progress was
made in creating a system of grant funding
for the arts.
Artistic merit and contribution to tour-
ism are going to be important factors in
deciding what is funded, Connor said. He
added that it doesn't matter the size of the
event if the criteria is not met.
'A lot of details have to be worked out
because we're treading uncharted ground,"
he said.
Committee member Tina Peak, library
-director for the Lake Wales Public Library,
said she is "very encouraged" and believes
the group can make a big impact on what
arts and culture can do to help tourism.
"It looks like an exciting committee to
serve on," Peak said.
The committee's next meeting, which
is open to the public, is set for Oct. 11 in
Auburndale.


County Commission split on funding outside agencies


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER @POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
No matter how you sliced it, Polk County -
Commissioner Edwin V Smith opposes
spending $855,586 to outside agencies.
He was supported in that opposition by
Commissioner Bob English, whose tone
was more conciliatory. They were outvoted
3-2 on the matter when it came before the
BOCC at its Sept. 18 public session.
Most of the discussion on the topic came
from Commissioner Melony Bell. Since the
Sept. 6 public meeting, and the Sept. 13
meeting in which the FY2012-2013 budget
was approved, dispute over how much
money should go to the local SPCA arose.
Bell was in favor of drastic cuts while
English pushed funding remain intact for
that agency. Bell made several tweaks to
the proposed allocations. She advocated
giving:
$5,000 to the Imperial Symphony
Orchestra
*$30,000 to the Polk Arts Alliance
$20,000 to the SPCA
$20,000 to Circle of Friends
$27,500 to Polk County Animal Services
Last year the SPCA received $75,000,
part of it $25,000 which went for its
spay and neuter program, but Bell was in
opposition to it. English found the cuts too
severe, and cited the issue with feral cats.
According to him, there currently are more
than an estimated 320,000 feral cats. The


SPCA has been effective in controlling the
situation as best as possible.
"There is not another organization
that can spay and neuter 19,000 cats for
$75,000," he said. He added it was not
charity, but performing a public service.
"It's money well invested."
Otherwise, the cost to the county to
euthanize and the impact would be
much greater. He said there is docu-
mentation that has been received by the
BOCC that demonstrated the impact in
Gainesville, as well as in Orange County.
Bell reversed herself prior to the vote
as English defended the program and
restored the $27,500, instead of it going to
Polk County Animal Services.
She also opposed giving $20,000 to the
SPCA to renovate its kennel. However,
English prevailed upon the BOCC, saying
that the renovations would improve the
noise situation endured by the upscale
community that neighbors the kennel,
Victoria Lakes. He has received numerous
complaints from the subdivision, which
contributes many dollars to the ad
valorem tax base.
Bell made it known she appreciated the
effort made by the SPCA. She reminded the
BOCC, however, that the SPCA is in com-
petition with private veterinary practices.
"They have $4 million they raise in
their accounts. It's not our responsibility
to build kennels for them," she said. She
felt it was irresponsible for the BOCC to


support the SPCA in that matter.
The whole matter of funding out-
side agencies did not sit well with
Commissioner Edwin V Smith.
"It disturbs me very greatly, we see so
many areas up there," he said, pointing


to a chart projected onto a screen. "I feel
(it is) not appropriate of taxpayer dollars. It
just bothers me.
"If we've got $855,000 we don't need for
other things, maybe we ought to return it
to the taxpayers," he said.

Market draws a Depot gathering

Chris and Kelly Banks were at their booth with their 14-month old daughter Emma, who is the
inspiration for the name of their company. When trying to decide on a name that was unique,
her dad remembered he liked to call his daughter "princess" and also nicknamed her "wiggle
bottom." Thus, the "Princess Wiggle Bottom Boutique" was born, offering small toddler-size
custom dresses, shirts and hair pieces.

The second ever "Frostproof Market" event at the historic Wall Street Depot was held last

Frostproof again in 39-mile yard sale Nov. 3


Now is the time to mark your calen-
dars for a great day of shopping and
stopping to enjoy the views along the
Ridge Scenic Highway (State Road 17)
from Frostproof to Haines City.
If you have too much clutter and want
to clear out some closets or the garage,
now is a great time to start getting it all
ready to sell.
Now in its fifth year, the 39-Mile Yard Sale
will be on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 8 a.m. to
2 p.m. and promises to be full of bargains.
Scenic Highway residents, churches
and community organizations, and


businesses located all along the
highway are taking the opportunity to
sell all manner of things from antiques
to clothing, furniture, and collectibles.
Some restaurants along the yard sale
route will have shopper's specials.

munity locations" for area residents or
vendors who don't have property along
the route to set up items for sale There
is a $10 charge for spaces in the com-
munity locations.
"It is really a lot of fun," said Diana
Webster-Biehl, one of the volunteer


organizers and a Frostproof City Council
member. "I've had a couple of tables and
had a great time meeting new people
and welcoming visitors to the area. I also
made more money with odds and ends
than I would have ever imagined."
This annual event is organized by
the Ridge Scenic Highway Corridor
Management Entity to bring people
from the region to the communities
along the Ridge Scenic Highway, stimu-
lating the economy and exposing them
to the unique vistas of historic homes,
charming towns, lakes, citrus groves

School district, teachers reach pay pact


By MARY CANNADAY
NEWS @ FROSPROOFNEWS.NET
As part of an effort to stem the exodus
to other counties, a pay increase is
included in this year's budget for Polk
School District teachers.
School psychologists will see a higher
paycheck as well, as will paraprofes-
sionals and clerical staff.
According to a joint statement from
the district and the Polk Education
Association recently, the raise is not based
on a percentage or specific dollar amount
but rather based on becoming more
competitive with surrounding counties.
The new pay scale, when ratified by
the board and union, will move teach-
ers at each level up one step. Teachers
and psychologists are paid by steps and
levels, according to years of experience
and degrees held. All teachers, except
those with no experience, will move up
a notch. Teachers with no experience,
designated "step zero" will still receive
an increase of $750.
In a letter to PEA members, President
Marianne Capoziella said, "Not only will


you receive step movement, but each
step has increased in value."
To illustrate, a "step one" teacher
who under last year's pay scale would
have earned $35,657, will now be paid
$36,950, which is the former "step two"
salary with a $1,293 raise added in.
"We've tried to ensure that there's
equal pay increase between each step,"
Capoziella said. The idea is to "smooth
out" the salary steps, increasing pay for
teachers in the beginning and middle
steps, encouraging them to stay in Polk
County, she said.
In her letter to members, she noted
that the current salary structure (before
the increase) provided for small step in-
creases near the beginning of a teacher's
career with some much larger increases
near the end of the scale. Under the
new contract, the biggest increase is
for teachers with 10 years of experi-
ence, who will see an annual increase
of $3,023 over last year. There are 25
steps and four levels on the Polk District
teacher salary scale. Teacher pay, under
the new schedule, tops out at $59,395
for a 25-year, level-four educator.


There are also increases for teachers
with advanced degrees, with master's
degrees in various specialties adding
from $2,206 to $2,899, and a doctorate
adding $3,220 (to the salary of a level
one bachelor's degree.)
The salary scale for school psycholo-
gists with a Master's in Arts plus intern
or previous experience ranges from
$49,737 to $64,311 under the new
schedule.
Lori Cunningham, District 2 school
board member, said, "I'm just very
excited that we can do this for our
teachers this year. The board feels very
strongly that teachers are our greatest
asset. You can have the best buildings,
the best curriculum in the world, but
the teachers make all the difference."
Although only teacher and psycholo-
gist pay scales were distributed, the
joint statement said that all employees
represented by the PEA were represent-
ed by the settlement, and a statement
from school board Superintendent
Sherrie Nickell said, "We also know that
our para-educators and clerical staff are
an integral part of the district's mission


and so we wanted to ensure that we
acknowledged them as well."
A sticking point in the past, between
the district and union, has been the per-
ceived lack of transparency in teacher
pay negotiations. The joint statement
said, "Nickell and Capoziello agree that
progress need to continue to be made,
but with open discussion, transparent
budgeting and laser-like focus on com-
mon goals, progress will be made."
A date for the increase to begin has
not yet been set, since the contract
must be ratified by both sides, but
Capoziello said employees should
receive notification of the ratification
timelines shortly.
District 6 board member Debra
Wright said she's very happy to see the
salary issue resolved.
"In these hard economic times, I'm
sure the increase will be welcomed,"
she said. "The whole staff, as well as the
teachers deserve this. I've been an ad-
vocate for this since I joined the board. I
felt we had to do something about these
salaries. This is moving us in the right
direction."

Reader feels TV neglects shingles


DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: Will you please do a column
on shingles? I have gone through 12
weeks of the nastiest, worst illness
possible. I never hear anything on TV
about it. J.C.
ANSWER: I'll have another go at
shingles. Others probably think I
overdo it. But it's such a common
problem of older people that it
deserves repetition.
Shingles is the work of the reawak-
ened chickenpox virus that has been
asleep in nerve cells ever since a
person was infected, usually in child-
hood. It's a safe bet to say you were
infected even if you don't recall it;
more than 95 percent of adults were.
The rash of shingles usually disap-
pears in two to four weeks. Pain,
however, can stay with you. The pain
is now called postherpetic neuralgia.
In making the trip to the skin, the
virus damaged the nerve roots that it
crawled down to reach the skin. Pain
is a consequence of the nerve injury.
A large number of treatments exist
for this aftermath of shingles. One is
amitriptyline, whose primary use is
relief of depression. It also has pain-
relieving properties in doses lower than
what's given for depression. Neurontin
(gabapentin) is a seizure-control


medicine that often is successful in
suppressing pain. The extended-release
form of this drug, called Gralise, is
given only once a day. Lyrica (pregaba-
lin) has had a good record in quieting
postherpetic neuralgia
Lidocaine skin patches, placed on
the skin where pain is felt, are an-
other way to ease pain without taking
an oral medicine. Lidocaine is a
numbing agent. The latest innovation
for shingles treatment is Qutenza,
another skin-patch medicine. The
doctor has to apply this patch, and
lets it stay on the skin for an hour.
Then the doctor removes the patch,
and the effect of the medicine lasts
for three months. It is expensive.
In cases where no treatment brings
relief, opioids pain relievers of the


morphine family have a place in
treatment, so long as they are super-
vised carefully by the doctor.
The booklet on shingles explains
this problem in depth. Readers can
order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue
- No. 1201, Box 536475, Orlando,
FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or
money order (no cash) for $4.75
U.S./$6 Can. with the recipient's
printed name and address. Please
allow four weeks for delivery.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: I heard that heart attack
risk rises when using the antibiotic
azithromycin. I have occasional bouts
of bronchitis for which I take this
medicine. It usually works well for
me. Is it safe? M.E
ANSWER: Azithromycin
(Zithromax) is a popular antibiotic.
It's been found that cardiovascular
deaths (heart attacks) have occurred
with greater frequency than is ex-
pected when using this medicine. The
increase in death rate is very small,
and it probably results from a distur-
bance in the heart's electrical activity.
You shouldn't stay away from
azithromycin if you truly need it.
Many cases of bronchitis are viral-
caused and don't respond to antibiot-
ics. That's a point worth remembering


when taking any antibiotic.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: I suffered from an enlarged
prostate, so I was sent to a urologist.
He checked for cancer, but I don't
have it. He put me on Flomax and
Avodart. After three years, the doctor
said the medicines were no longer
working and that I had to have
surgery or my bladder would be
damaged and I would have to carry
a bag for the rest of my life. I am 57.
I had a transurethral resection of the
prostate, TURP It's been two months,
and I still am passing blood clots. Is
this normal. J.G.
ANSWER: It's normal to bleed
after a TURP, but it's not normal to
be bleeding two months after the
procedure.
Give the urologist a call. Let him
examine you again and determine
why the bleeding is lasting this long.

letters, but will incorporate them in the

The dark side of Black Cohosh


Actaea racemosa is a species of
flowering plant that goes by a variety
of common names, from pretty ("fairy
candle") to pretty scary ("black bug-
bane"). Most commonly, it's called
black cohosh, and for centuries,
extracts of the plant have been used as
a folksy painkiller, sedative and anti-
inflammation treatment.
When researchers discovered a few
years ago that hormone replacement
therapy increased cancer and heart dis-
ease risk in some menopausal women,
black cohosh supplements quickly
became a go-to alternative,
an herbal remedy that racked up
millions of dollars in sales annually.
Recent controlled trials of the herb,
however, show that its ability to relieve
hot flashes, sleep disruption, mood
swings and other menopausal symp-
toms are mixed at best. Sometimes it
works, sometimes it doesn't. In some
cases, it may even cause liver damage.
The problem, though, might not
be with Actaea racemosa itself, but
with herbal supplement products that
knowingly or unknowingly mix black
cohosh with other related species.
Researchers at the New York Botanical


WELL NEWS
Scott LaFee



Garden analyzed the plant DNA of nu-
merous samples of commercially-sold
black cohosh pills. Many contained
other plant ingredients. One-quarter of
the samples weren't black cohosh at all.
Supplements do not undergo the
same level of testing for safety and
efficacy as drugs. Mislabeling is much
more common. The researchers, who
did not publicly identify the errant
samples for fear of legal action, con-
ceded there's little consumers can do
at the moment to make sure they're
getting what they think they're buying.
Food for thought, if not the body.

Body of knowledge
Humans shed about 600,000 particles

Is your voter information current?
Voters who have moved or changed their
name are encouraged to notify Election
Headquarters in advance of voting.
According to Florida law, voters are
required to vote at the precinct in which
they reside on Election Day.
"By notifying the Elections office in
advance, voters will receive a new voter
information card with the correct polling
location information," explained Supervisor
of Elections Lori Edwards. Having records
updated in advance significantly reduces
processing time on Election Day. Updated
information may be submitted online at
polkelections.com.

Greatness costs what it cost


ShandaleTerrell believes that positive
feedback is key for students' success.
Greatness comes with the ability to serve
others, love one-self, to forgive, and to live
one's life with dignity. Greatness is some-
thing that can be felt within. It can also be
sensed by the people around you.
Not everyone is capable of acquiring
greatness because it requires enormous
inner strength to move forward and make a
difference everyday no matter what issues,
concerns, difficulties and troubles come
their way. They perform under pressure
and at the highest level. Great leaders,
also known as servant leaders, believe in
teamwork. This is what I convey to the
students every day. My students know that
the following great leaders in Polk County
make a difference in their life:
Polk County Sheriff Department: Sheriff
Grady Judd and Maj. Joe Halman, making
sure there is a connection and communi-
cation between the community and the
sheriff department.
The City of Lakeland Chief of Police:
LisaWomack, educating the citizenry in
order to improve the culture for the City of
Lakeland.
Newly Elected Clerk of the Courts: Stacy


Butterfield, is making a positive difference
providing financial oversight, comprehen-
sive audits and investigative services to
promote accountability and transparency
for Polk County.
Polk County Board of County
Commissioners: County Manager Jim
Freeman enhances the productivity of the
Board of County Commissioners.
Polk County Board of Commissioners: Bob
English, Sam Johnson, Melony Bell, Edwin
Smith and Todd Dantzler, serve the citizens
of Polk County with ethical leadership.
Polk County Board of County
Commissioners Equal Opportunity
Employer Kandis Buford and Office of
Supplier Diversity Cedric Joseph, educat-
ing the citizens in Polk County on business


management and diversifying business and
solicitation through a bidding process.
Polk County Emergency Fire and Rescue
Department: David Cash saves lives and
provides superiorily to serve to the citizens.
Polk State College President: Dr. Eileen
Holden transfonnrms the educational struc-
ture of Polk Community College to Polk
State College and provide students with a
rigorous higher level of learning.
Superintendent of Polk County Public
Schools: Sherrie Nickell and the School
Board Members are servant leaders, provid-
ing students with the best educational
curriculum for a learning community.
Polk County Public Schools: Diversity
Management Department with Ernest Joe
who improves the equality of diversity in
education.
Polk County Public Schools: Associate-
Superintendent of Learning David Lewis is
a guru of curriculum and instruction. He
enhances K-12 schools education.
Winter Haven City Manager: Deric
Feacher enhances the quality of life and the
work force for the citizens of Winter Haven.
Samuel Bennett educates students in
K-12 schools and in a higher education
institution to achieve academic success.


Crystal Lake Middle School Principal:
Chris Canning transforms a school of
deficiency to a learning environment that
is conducive to student achieve and high
expectations.
Supervisor of Elections: Lori Edwards
educates the citizens of Polk County on
their elective and election rights.
Polk County Work Force: Stacy Campbell-
Domineck educates the Polk County future
workforce.
City of Lakeland Mayor: Gow Fields
and the city commissioners improve the
community, economic development and
business structure for the City of Lakeland.
Our youth need to know that these great
leaders worked extremely hard to achieve
their success. These men and women
invested 110 percent in their future through
their education.
I tell students that education laid the
foundation for advancement for the
individuals listed, above to become prolific
leaders ... not only in their profession but
in their community as well.

Shandale Terrell is the chairman of the
Community Relations Advisory Committee
and is a dean at Crystal Lake Middle School.

Wood named new
county waste resource
management director
Pending confirmation by the Polk
County Board of County Commissioners,
Ana E. Wood will be the newWaste
Resource Management director.
"Ana brings more than 20 years of public
and private sector experience in the solid
waste industry," said County Manager Jim
Freeman.
Wood previously served as WRM direc-
tor from 1998-2005 and during that time
she successfully demonstrated her skills in
strategic planning and innovative deploy-
ment of new technologies that make the
North Central Landfill one of the finest
solid waste facilities in North America, the
county reports.
Wood, a long-time resident of Polk
County, is committed to strong financial
stewardship and providing excellent cus-
tomer service to citizens and businesses.
"Her proven passion for excellence and
her energetic leadership qualities make
her ideal for this position," Freeman said.
"I look forward to working with Ana to
ensure Polk County provides cost-effective
and quality customer service in landfill
operations, processing of recyclable ma-
terials, and collection, disposal and billing
for residential solid waste.
Wood has a Bachelor of Science degree
in Business Administration from Lynn
University, a Master of Science degree from
the University of Miami and a Certificate
in Public Management from Florida State
University Upon confirmation by the board
at their Oct 2,2012 meeting, Wood will
begin employment Oct. 3.

Solar farm
ceremony scheduled
Lakeland Electric and solar partner
SunEdison will celebrate Phase II of the
solar farm at the southwest corner of
the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport
with a Flip the Switch Ceremony
Monday, Oct. 15 at 1 p.m.
The public is invited to attend as
Lakeland Electric flips the switch to


energize SunEdison the system at 4250
Hamilton Road.
Phase II of the project generates
3 megawatts of energy through 12,528 solar
panels. The entire system is expected to
produce 5,316,220 kilowatt hours of solar
energy in the first year of operation and
more than 121 million kilowatt hours over
25 years.
Phase I and Phase II contain more than
22,000 solar panels in total on more than 40
acres of land.
Joel Ivy, general manager of Lakeland
Electric said, "The 5.3 MWac solar farm
was made possible through a strategic
solar power service agreement between
SunEdison and Lakeland Electric. In the
agreement SunEdison will finance and
deploy the solar farm with no upfront costs
from Lakeland Electric."
Lakeland Mayor Gow Fields said, "While
our partnership with SunEdison is probably
the largest and most visible green effort
from Lakeland Electric, as a municipal
government we have been installing more
energy-efficient lights in our buildings, we
have moved to LED traffic signals and we
have converted to more energy-efficient
heating, ventilation and air conditioning
systems in our larger facilities."
Over 25 years, the solar farm will produce
enough clean energy to power more than
15,500 Lakeland homes for one year. In
that same amount of time, the solar farm
will offset more than 167 million pounds
of carbon dioxide equivalent to removing
mor than 25,000 cars from the road fo one
year.

PSC plans
Hispanic Heritage Month
Polk State College's annual Hispanic
Heritage Month celebration will offer
students, employees and visitors an
array of events on both the Lakeland and
Winter Haven campuses.
Hispanic Heritage Month is one of
several annual initiatives at the College to
spotlight various areas of diversity within
the community it serves. Others include
Black History Month, Women's History
Month and Disability Ability Awareness
Month.
"These events are opportunities to
learn about the cultures, backgrounds
and histories of diverse groups. Polk State
is an inclusive institution, and we show
that by embracing the diversity found on
our campuses, which is a reflection of the
diversity of Polk County as a whole," said
Val Baker, director of the College's Office
of Equity and Diversity.
Polk State's Hispanic enrollment was
14.6 percent in 2011-12, up from 13.2 per-
cent in the previous year, and it continues


to grow. Hispanic students account for
15.5 percent of the College's total head-
count. The growth in Polk State's Hispanic
enrollment mirrors the countywide trend.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 17.7
percent of Polk's population is Hispanic,
up 132 percent from 2000.

closing.
Of course these are just a few of the important
items, each transaction is different and things you will
need to prepare for will be tailored for your purchase.
Let your Realtor guide you!
What should I look for on my final walk through?
When you meet your Realtor for the final walk
through before closing you should look to see that the
home's condition is acceptable and nothing important
has been changed or damaged. You should verify all
items that were to be left with the home are in fact
there. If repairs were required as part of your pur-
chase contract, now would be the time to verify they
have been completed. These are the major reasons
for a walk-through inspection. Ideally you should


have your walk-through a day or two before closing,
that way if there are any issues that need to be ad-
dressed you have time to take care of them without
delaying the closing.
What will happen on closing day?
The day of closing both the buyer and seller sign all
of the necessary paperwork and money is exchanged
to complete the purchase. If there is a mortgage for
the purchase all of those documents will be part of
the closing package and the buyer is required to sign
them this time. In most cases, the buyer receives keys
to the property at the closing. In some foreclosure
sales the keys are only given after the bank has veri-
fied the proper amount of money has been received
and cleared for the purchase. The seller receives their
proceeds and you own a new home!!
