Relay ready to reach major money


Community has raised almost

quarter-million dollars in cancer fight


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY @HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COMI
People dealing with cancer often reach
important individual milestones in their
fight.
But the Frostproof community is ap-
proaching an important collective mile-
stone when the city hosts its 10th annual
American Cancer Society's Relay for Life
next spring.
Chairman Sandy Sackett was review-
ing the numbers recently, shortly before
Frostproof's official Relay 2013 kickoff event
which drew a standing room only crowd at
the Wall Street depot last Tuesday evening.
What she discovered is a generous com-
munity ready to reach an impressive figure.
"In the past 10 years, we've raised almost
a quarter-million dollars for Relay for Life,"
she said to loud applause from the crowd of
Relay supporters. "That's because of what
folks like you do, plain and simple, coming
together and working together. That's what
relay is about."
Last year, a total of 16 teams participated,
and they are hoping for more in 2013. In
fact, the night of the kickoff, two new teams
pledged their support for the community
event which will be held April 5 and 6 at the
Wall Street Play Park.


Last year's relay collected more than
$20,000 for the fight against cancer. Teams
included Ben Hill Griffin Jr. Elementary,
Frostproof Church of God, First
Presbyterian Church of Frostproof, The
Doenators, Ferguson Sinkers, Frostproof
Elementary, Federations of Christian
Sportsman, City of Frostproof, Frostproof
Church of God Youth, Citizen's Bank and
Trust, First United Methodist, The Coffee
Club, The Deer Hunters, Frostproof Middle
Senior High School Interact Club, First
Baptist Church of Frostproof, Nancy Bell's
Family and Friends, and Zeta Phi Beta
sorority.
"Thank you for the effort you put forth,"
Sackett said. "The whole goal tonight is
to get everyone informed about what we
are doing for relay this year. It's our 10th
anniversary so we are really excited."
Team chairman Missy Hadden said
the ground is just being broken for next
spring's event.
"We will be working very hard over the
next several months to plan the relay and
make it a big success," she said.
There will be several community wide
fund raisers planned in coming months.
One will be an old-fashioned barn dance,
with details on that to be announced
shortly.

Uptick in citrus production predicted


Official calls estimate manageable,


expects good growth


By JAMES COULTER
NEWS @ FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
-The citrus crop in Florida was
predicted to grow.by 5 percent in the
coming year, farmers heard at the
annual crop estimate breakfast last
Thursday.
The 2012 Florida Citrus Crop
Estimate Breakfast was held about
14 miles from Bartow, down a se-
cluded dirt path off of Marshall Road
where nestled within the orange trees
is Ray-Bob Groves.
Early Thursday morning, as the sun
peaked over the horizon and dissi-
pated the morning fog, more than 60
visitors gathered under its aluminum


canopy for the event.
Every year members of the local
citrus industry attend the breakfast to
hear the United States Department of
Agriculture announce its annual crop
estimates.
This year's guests included Sen.
Bill Nelson, Florida Commissioner of
Agriculture Adam Putnam, and state
legislators Steve Crisafulli and John
Wood.
Around 8:30 a.m., after enjoying a
hearty breakfast, every guest became
silent as they listened intently to the
radio broadcast from Arcadia an-
noincing the estimates for the 2012-
13 season.
This year, Florida has been


estimated to produce 154 million
boxes of oranges, a 5 percent increase
from last year.
It was also estimated to produce
74 million boxes of navel oranges a
slight decrease from last year and
80 million boxes ofValajea oranges -
a 10 percent increase.
"The figure released by the USDA
today is smaller than the private
estimates circulating around the
industry," said Michael W. Sparks,
executive VP/CEO of Florida Citrus
Mutual. "It's certainly a manageable
crop for Florida citrus growers and I
am hopeful at this size the market will
continue to put upward pressure on
fruit pricing."


Other Florida citrus estimates in-
clude 20.3 million boxes of grapefruit
- an 8 percent increase 12 million
boxes of tangelos a 4 percent
increase and 44 million boxes of
tangerines a 3 percent increase.
"It's a manageable number,"
said Andrew Meadows, Director of
Communications for Florida Citrus
Mutual. "We had a couple good years
in a row, and we're expecting another
good year this year."
FCM has hosted the breakfast for
five years. With 8,000 growers in mem-
bership, the group represents Florida's
citrus industry.

VIEWPOINT


Circuit Judge, Group 7 recommendation


In the race to see who gets to be a new
Circuit Judge in the 10th Circuit, Group 7,
there are two candidates vying for the posi-
tion. The race is a runoff between attorneys
Christine Trakas Thornhill and Bill Sites who
competed in a three-way race in August.
Neither one won more than 50 percent of the
vote, forcing the runoff election.
Christine Trakas Thornhill is a 37-year-old
attorney who grew up in Polk County and after
graduating law school at St. Thomas University
School of Law took a job in the Public
Defender's Office.
Thornhill said that experience gave her a
keen insight into the scope and complexity
of a judge's job. She has also volunteered with
Teen Court in Polk County.
Bill Sites is a Polk County attorney who has
been in private practice for 23 years. Sites looks
at the courtroom as a big part of his life. "My
life has been in the courtrooms. I've been a
good lawyer and a good businessman, he said.

Christine Trakas Thornhill


Sites has been endorsed by Larry Helms, a
Winter Haven attorney who has been practic-
ing law for 37 years and was the loser in the
October three-way race. Sites also said he
would have his courtroom proceedings start
on time. "There is no reason why court can't


start on time," he said. Everyone involved in
a court case has other things that they should
be doing and making sure court starts on time
respects everyone's time, he told our editorial
board.
We were impressed by Sites' demeanor and
candor. He exhibits a visible love and respect
for the law that would serve the court and the
county well.
Both candidates in this judge's race are
intelligent, thoughtful attorneys. Both have
differing levels of experience. Thornhill is a
capable, intelligent and community-minded
individual who would make a great judge. She
does, however, have a little less experience
than her opponent.
We believe that Bill Sites has the experience
and temperament that would be well suited
to sitting on the bench and would make an
excellent judge.
We recommend Bill Sites for Circuit Judge,
Group 7.


Letters to the editor


Which peaceful nation?


Sometimes I receive from a stock
brokerage firm, invitations to invest
-in specific companies or funds. Each
solicitation includes a statement that
past performance is no guarantee of
future performance. I wonder whether
such a statement should be applied to
nations. Is a nation's history any indica-
tion of its future actions? Let's take Iran
and the United States of America as one
test comparison. Our political leaders of
both major parties perpetually pro-
claim that Iran is a dangerous nation,
a threat to us and to its neighbors. So
let us compare Iran's and the U.S.' past


actions and project a future based on
them.
During this past decade, the United
States has initiated two wars: one
against a dictator in Iraq, and the
other against the former ruling party in
Afghanistan. Neither country had ever
militarily threatened U.S. soil, and had
little power to do so. During the same
period, Iran invaded nobody.
During the Twentieth Century the
United States fought in two world wars.
Of course there are good argtunents for
MEADE 15


Addressing voter fraud or causing it?


We enjoy many freedoms in America
because "we the people" choose our
leaders though open and fair elections.
Previous generations have battled for
the right to vote due to their race or
gender. And the brave men and women
of our military have put their lives on
the line to protect these freedoms and
rights. An open, transparent and fair
election is the bedrock of our political
system. So any change to how elections
are held should be considered with the
utmost caution and always with the
goal of ensuring every legitimate voter
can access the polls with no barrier,
delay or intimidation.
So it was troubling last year when a
massive piece-of legislation suddenly
changed many procedures for voter
registration and'early voting in Florida.
Then, as many of these changes were
being challenged in the courts, the state


Paula Dockery
[Th e


began a questionable purge of "illegal"
voters. As justification for these affronts
to citizens' rights, the state cited "voter
fraud."
Clearly, if fraud exists, the 67 locally
elected supervisors of elections should
aggressively address it, while ensuring
that legitimate voters remain on the
rolls and that their votes are counted.
But first, the supervisors must confirm
that fraud exists.Then, they should


address it with a properly measured
remedy. But this approach doesn't
describe recent history in Florida.
It all started in the spring of 2011
during the legislative session. A bill
passed the Senate ethics and elections
committee that addressed one issue:
making it easier to put legislative-
sponsored constitutional amendments
on the ballot after the courts determine
the language is misleading or confus-
ing, by allowing the attorney general
to simply make any needed changes.
After passing out of committee as a
relatively small bill, this piece of legisla-
tion morphed into a 158-page bill filled
with controversial changes, including
reducing the number of early voting
days from 14 to 6, and requiring the use
of provisional ballots for voters who, as
one example, want to note their new
addresses at the polls.


The first opportunity many of us had
to question this legislative train was on
the floor of the Senate when it faced
final passage. Where was the justifica-
tion for making these changes? Where
was the chance for meaningful debate?
Why should we make it more difficult to
register, change your address and vote?
While there was no credible evidence of
fraud, nor any claim of fraudulent activ-
ity from the supervisors of election, the
actions were defended with the noble-
sounding cause of "preventing fraud."
At the same time, Gov. Rick Scott
produced a questionable list two, in
fact of potentially "illegal" voters. The
larger list was quickly abandoned, but
a purge list with roughly 2,000 names
was sent to counties with the sugges-
tion that these voters be removed from

"We expect to produce a quality
crop, we grow the best citrus in the
world here in Florida, and now that we
got the estimate behind us, growers
are going to get back at what they do
best and that's growing Florida citrus,"
Meadows said.


Sen. Bill Nelson speaks of his accomplishments
in Congress obtaining research funding to help
combat the Citrus Greening Disease outbreak
in Florida.


The increase in citrus production
was good news for citrus growers,
especially in light of a citrus disease
outbreak.
Spread by the Asian citrus psyl-
lid, Huanglongbing (HLB), or Citrus
Greening Disease, has been devastat-
ing Florida citrus crops including
those in Polk County.
More than $3.63 billion in revenue
and 6,000 jobs have been lost in
Florida over the past six years due to
the disease, according to a University
of Florida study released earlier this
year.
But despite a lower number of bear-
ing trees this season, the remaining
citrus trees have seen an increase in
their fruit, thus leading to this season's

higher fruit production.
"I think we came within in the range
of expectations of most growers,"
said FCM president Mark Wheeler.
"The prime estimates that came out
a couple months ago seemed a little
on the high side for most growers, so
I think this number is a little more
in line than what our first estimates
were."
Before the estimates were released,
Nelson opened the breakfast with a
speech where he spoke of his efforts
in Congress to get research funding to
help combat the greening epidemic.
He said that he had helped obtain
$11 million from the USDA and a
permanent citrus research trust fund
expected to pass the Senate later this
year.
Needless to say, he was pleased with
the citrus crop estimates.
"It looks like it's going to be a good
year," he said. "Barring some major
-disaster, which we don't anticipate, it
looks like the prices are going to be
good, and they are going to have a


good, healthy crop."
Every year guests participate in a
guessing contest over the orange and
grapefruit crop estimates.
This year, three men guessed cor-
rectly: Marty McKenna, Steve Curuso,
and Jason Pate.
McKenna was selected as the winner
by Nelson and received a pair of field
binoculars as his prize.
"I thought there might be a few lush
trees, a few more drops, so I picked
154 out of the air and happened to get
lucky," McKenna said.
The winner of the grapefruit esti-
mate was Mark Wheeler.
Citrus harvesting should run into
June.
The USDA says Polk County leads
the state's citrus-producing counties
with 82,572 grove acres and 9.9 million
trees in 2012. It historically leads in
citrus production, as it did in the
2011-12 season.
It ranked No. 1 in orange, tangerine
and tangelo production and third in
grapefruit.


Every year, members of the local citrus industry gather to enjoy breakfast while listening to the
annual crop estimates from the USDA.

your actions are directly responsible
for it.

Brady Baschlor, 23 months, took some
time Saturday to imitate his older

whip-cracking contest at the 24th annual
Cracker Storytelling Festival. Though too
young to participate, Brady has been
playing with the whips for months and is
likely to be a future competitor.

An emergency closing of Lake Reedy Boulevard between Chesney and Lakeview should be in
place about a week while repairs are being made.

Water issues close Lake Reedy Blvd.


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
The Frostproof City Council on
Monday night authorized spending
up to $70,000 for emergency repairs
needed on Lake Reedy Boulevard.
Officials closed the street Monday
because of ongoing issues connected to
a stormwater pipe that is broken in the
area, creating a situation that could be
dangerous to motorists.
"It's been an issue we've had for some
time, but it's really escalated due to the
rainy weather," City Manager T.R. Croley
said.
She said a simple fix of putting in
a new layer of asphalt isn't practical
anymore.
"It's just going to wash away because
there's an undercurrent of almost like
spring water coming up through the
road," she noted.
The council approved the hiring of
Empower Construction of Frostproof to


fix the problem at a cost not to exceed
$70,000. Empower's Mark Granger said
he believed the actual cost of the repair
might be closer to $50,000. He was
down at the site of the problem Monday
along with Frostproof Department of
Public Works Director James Keene.
"This thing has grown since I've
looked at it before," Granger said. "It's
starting to get larger and larger. I'm
surprised you haven't had a vehicle fall
in."
Residents on the west side of the
Lake Reedy Blvd., known as the "double
drive" still are being allowed to access
their houses with their vehicles, but no
traffic is being allowed near Lakeview.
Granger said he would have workers
on site yesterday to begin the work,
which he estimated would take about
five or six days to complete.
Because it was designated as an
emergency, no bids were required.
' "We're trying to hold the costs down
as much as we can," Granger added.

Grimsley, McCland square off at Tiger Bay


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

It was a negative experience
dealing with a state employee that
propelled Denise Grimsley, R-Lake
Placid, into politics, and it has been
onerous regulations that prompted
rival Stacy Anderson McCland,
D-St. Cloud, to also seek out the
Florida Senate seat for District
21. Both are seeking to replace JD
Alexander, R-Lake Wales in what was
formerly the 17th District. Both ap-
peared at the Polk County Tiger Bay
club luncheon Monday, Oct. 15.
In Grimsley's situation, she spoke
of the time when she took over
the family business and found it
necessary to travel to Tallahassee to
speak with a state regulator whose
arrogant manner almost cost the
family operation to go out of busi-
ness. In that meeting, she claimed
the individual kept his back to her
the entire time and was totally rude.
When she later encountered her
representative at the time, Grimsley
was told had she contacted him that
he would have handled the situation
for her.
For Anderson, who has a back-
ground in agriculture, the family
operation almost went out of
business, but this was due to a
winter freeze. As a consequence, she
returned to college and earned her
juris doctorate to become a lawyer.
While in college, she learned how
the political system operates, which
was key to the family business,
because onerous regulations were
(and are, she said) hurting business,
especially small business.
"When it comes to small business,
we really, really need a break,"
McCland said. She added that
agriculture in Florida, as well as
throughout the U.S., is disappear-
ing, and added that just recently for
the first time, agricultural imports
exceeded U.S. Exports. In Florida,
McCland claimed the state legis-
lature is diminishing the state's
agricultural industry.
McCland also took the Legislature


Both Stacy McCland (center) and Denise Grimsley enjoy a moment of levity as S.L, Frisbie (left)
speaks of the none-too-quiet predecessor JD Alexander. The latter was state senator for District
17, which is now District 21. Grimsley and McCland are vying to fill that seat.


to task for raiding trust funds to
balance the budget.
"Trust funds are set aside for spe-
cific purposes," said McCland. "This
is like robbing Peter to pay Paul."
McCland called for an evaluation
to be conducted everywhere where
money is spent. She also mentioned
that taxes would eventually have to
be raised.
In response, Grimsley acknowl-
edged that while McCland was
correct about money taken from
trust funds, it was not as dire as her
opponent portrayed it.
"Yes, money was taken," said
Grimsley, who added a review was
conducted. It was necessary to
make up for a $4.2 billion deficit.
However, it did not have an im-
pact on stopping projects. "Even
though the money was taken from
a trust fund, it came from the


Transportation Trust Fund." That
trust fund, said Grimsley was huge,
as it comes from fuel sales tax. She
added that taking Transportation
Trust Fund money did not halt or
cancel a single road project.
Term limits was another topic the
candidates expounded upon. Both
favor them.
"I really believe in them," said
McCland. Florida, she said, is a big
state, and while there are many
currently serving who are smart, it
didn't mean there aren't others who
don't have other skills that can make
the Legislature better. McCland also
stated that too often, those who
term limit out remain in Tallahassee
and become lobbyists.
In her support of term limits,
Grimsley said the difference
between her and her opponent
was that Grimsley favored a longer


term, 12 years.
"When you first begin, you
don't know," Grimsley said,
referring to learning the ins and
outs of the legislative process.
There was also another reason: the
retention of those with institutional
knowledge. Otherwise, the situation
arises where staffers become the de
facto legislators.
One issue raised during the ques-
tion and answer session was the
amount of money each candidate
had raised. McCland has raised less
than $7,000, while Grimsley has
raised nearly $850,000. Both de-
fended their fund raising efforts.
Part of the reason why McCland
has raised a paltry amount, she
said, is because she did not enter
the race until very late, in June.
More important, though, is the fact
she has not received assistance,
she said, from the state Democratic
Party. That was because she was told
she would have to support certain
planks that she personally opposed.
To McCland, this was more than a
compromise, it meant being bought.
She encountered the same situa-
tion when she turned to unions for
their support. Unless she supported
them, they would not support her.
She claimed that one union repre-
sentative told her that it had made
arrangements with her opponent
to not contest Grimsley on certain
issues. However, McCland said this
was what she was told and had not
done any investigating into that
claim.
When it was her turn to address
the issue, Grimsley denied any
knowledge of any such agreement
or "understanding" with the unions.
However, she did not challenge
McCland to name names or cite
which unionss.
"I've never had to compromise
in order to get funds," she said. In
her defense, Grimsley added part of
the reason she has raised as much
as she has is because she began as
early as 2009, thus she has had more
time than her opponent.


Upcoming fundraiser to help the homeless, needy


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

Mariann Mossell and some friends of
hers felt it would be the right thing to
reach out a hand to those who need it
and she has reached thousands.
She's been doing it for a few years
now.
And, on Nov. 10 she is putting togeth-
er a third community outreach program
where she will provide mostly
through donations food and clothing
to people who need the help.
Mossell, who runs a prison ministry
mostly helping women in the Polk
County Jail, has developed a program
where 50 churches have gotten involved
and at the last outreach and mostly
through word of mouth more than 1,000
families showed up.
"We parked cars for six hours," she
said. "They came from the other side of
Tampa and Orlando."
The first two events were held in
Bartow, but this one looking for a more


central and larger location will be
held at 2140 New Tampa Highway in
Lakeland from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Anyone
who wants to help with donations can
do so. She said on Nov. 9 they will be
going to the site and people who want
to help can see them there from about
9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
"We'll probably divide this over two
days," She said.
And, they will be collecting donations
throughout the event too, said Kory
Farmer, who is helping with the event
next month.
"We collect donations throughout the
event," Farmer said. "Then it goes to the
people who go there."
She added while they are there to
help those who need, proof is necessary
to show you are in the right category
for those who need help. However, she
adds, there are a lot of people who need
help and being there, she. realizes it.
That thought was echoed by Mosell
and is reflected in a story she told about
her own daughter helping out at the last


program. She said her daughter who
has not always shown her drive to help
in these situations was talked into it at
the last program. She was serving food
to people at one table when she realized
that there were far more people than
there was food.
"I invited her and we pre-bagged the
food and put it on the table," Mossell
said. "Tammy came up to me and said
there would be no more food left and
lines were still out to the street. Well, I
told her to give out what we had until
there was none left and we'd just have
to pray.
"We never ran out of food. I don't
know what happened."
Whether it was more donations or
something straight from the Biblical story,
Mossell doesn't know, but what she does
know is this kind of help to the commu-
nity has seemed to grow as people come
out of the woodwork to help.
She said at the last event that was
held in Eloise, people came out with
jewelry and earrings to give people.


"Everybody just loved each other,"
she said. "It's crazy and we don't
understand it."
And, she said, she's not going to stop.
This is the first time she's let the media
know about it and figures the word
through the churches and from others
around the area have let people know
she and her friends are doing this.
"We get the word out and feed a few
people," she said. "We thought the first
time we may get 50-100 people helped.
"We were shocked that we got 1,000
families fed."
Next month's event will have a little
more than just food and clothing to give
to people. There will be a band donat-
ing time to play music. She said they
are donating their time and she's had to
turn away offers from others who want
to donate their time. Ultimately though
she just wants to help those who need
the help.
"It's doesn't matter if 50 people show
up or 1,000, it's all about getting people
what they need," she said.

Board members not surprised by Nickell retirement


Group has not
By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

Last week's announcement that Polk
County School Superintendent Sherrie
Nickell was going to retire at the end
of this school year may have been a
surprise to some, but not to members of
the district's board.
Neither District Four School Board
member Dick Mullenax nor District
Two's Lori Cunningham said they were
surprised by the announcement.
"I knew Dr. Nickell had some issues
with the health of her family members
for some time. That's a heavy burden on
anybody. I respect her decision, although
on a selfish level, I hate to see her go,"
Mullenax said.
Cunningham echoed this, saying that
in view of the need for her to be available
to her family, Nickell had "probably made
a wise decision."
Mullenax, who is in his third year on
the school board, recalled that prior to
Nickell's hiring, he described her as "an
unknown quantity," and took a wait and
see attitude, "but I've seen a woman
who works extremely hard. She found a

County. Nickell, superintendent of Polk County
Schools, will retire in June.
mess when she started, and has worked
tirelessly to correct the deficiencies,
especially in the area of curriculum. And
we've started to turn around," Mullenax
noted.


Cunningham said she was very
pleased with Nickell's performance as
superintendent.
"She has an unparalleled work ethic.
I've learned a lot from her during the
short time she's been superintendent,"
Cunningham said.
Nickell took the helm as superin-
tendent in November 2010. She had
worked in the field of education since
1979. Previously serving as Associate
Superintendent for Learning at Polk's
school district and supervising as
number of district departments prior to
that. She taught for nine years and was
a school-based administrator for nine
years, as well as teaching educational
leadership at the graduate school level.
Neither Mullenax nor Cunningham
knew yet what approach would be
taken to filling the vacancy. Mullenax
said he assumes the topic will be dis-
cussed soon in a public forum, probably
at a work session. Cunningham said it
would of course require the approval of
the entire board, whether or not to name
an interim superintendent and what type
of search to initiate, be it local, statewide
or nationwide.


In an email, Nickell said, "If they
choose to conduct a national search
(typically done by a search firm), those
searches take several months. I wanted
to ensure there is ample time in the
event the Board wishes to go in that
direction. Alternately, they may decide
to work with the Florida School Boards
Association to conduct a state-wide
search. That would likely take a bit less
time. Nonetheless, it is a process that is
time-consuming."
Although Nickell intends to stay on
board until June, when her contract
expires, she said will be stepping back a
bit, relying on the assistance of associate
superintendents Ann Tankson and David
Lewis. "While my family's needs require
more of my attention, we will continue to
implement the Board's priorities through
the transition period. We will continue
to implement high-yield strategies and
move this district forward. Please know
that I couldn't be more proud of you
and your dedication to ensuring student
success," Nickell wrote in her letter to
employees.
The superintendent's base pay is
$180,000 annually.

Bulldogs gut out bizarre win over Hardee


By BRIAN ACKLEY
NEWS @ FROSTPROOFNEWS.N ET

Halloween is still a few weeks away,
but weird and strange play haunted
Frostproof's Faris Brannen Stadium
Friday night.
It was weird enough, and strange
enough, that the Bulldogs were flagged,
unbelievably, for more than 200 yards
in penalties. They also saw starting
quarterback Xavier Gaines get benched,
and still won.
Sometimes, ya just gotta overcome.
And the Bulldogs did. They almost blew
a three TD lead, but managed to hang a
28-21 defeat on visiting Hardee.
The game wasn't decided, ap-
propriately enough, until a roughing
the kicker penalty against Hardee, as
Frostproof attempted a punt from its
own end zone with three minutes to
go in the fourth quarter. That allowed
the Bulldogs to retain possession of the
ball and run out the game clock, thanks
in part to the hard running of Cecil
Cherry and the gutty effort of backup
quarterback Marcus Bobb who played
despite being helped off the field by
two teammates earlier in the fourth
quarter when he injured his leg playing
defense.
The unofficial press box count was
11 personal fouls whistled against
Frostproof, which accumulated 230


yards in total walk-offs.
The Bulldogs scored twice in the first
five minutes Friday night and then held
on for dear life, improving their season
mark back to the .500 mark with the
non-district triumph.
The.hosts were up 21-7 at intermis-
sion in what would kindly be called
a penalty-filled game which featured
more turnovers than fans might have
expected on a dry, pleasant evening.
Midway through the third quarter,
the teams had combined for 220
yards in penalties, 135 of that against
Frostproof.
It didn't take long for Frostproof to
strike, and they did so on the defensive
side of the ball when Reggie Allen
stepped in front of a Kris Johnson
pass and raced 65 yards to pay dirt
on Hardee's first possession of the
night. Sebastian Avellaneda booted the
extra point he was three-for-three
on PAT kicks in the first half and
the Bulldogs led 7-0 just 1:40 into the
game.
A Frostproof interception on the
Wildcats next possession set up a
second score. Marcus Bobb picked off
a Johnson aerial at the Bulldog 30, and
on the very next play, Xavier Gaines
found Daniel Knighten wide open and
well behind the Hardee defense for a
70-yard touchdown strike and 14-0 lead
with more than seven minutes to play

in the first.
The Bulldogs looked like they
would really make it a rout early, as
Allen recovered the kickoff which was
fumbled at the Hardee 16. Two plays
later, however, the Frostproof offense
coughed it up themselves to end the
threat.
Hardee then marched 90 yards in 13
plays, eating more than six minutes off
the game clock, to cut the lead to 14-7.
Aaron Barker capped the drive with a
four-yard run.
Frostproof had a touchdown called


back on its ensuing possession, but
tacked on a third touchdown with just
a little more than four minutes to play
in the half. The Bulldogs took over
after a Hardee punt at its own 45, and
Xavier Gaines found Major Plain open
on a 50-yard pass play to the Wildcat 5.
Gaines then lined up in the backfield,
took the handoff, and went around left
end for the score and a 21-7 Frostproof
advantage at intermission.
The hosts took advantage of another

Hardee miscue early in the second half
to continue to build the lead. A punt
snap sailed into the end zone on the
Wildcats first possession of the third
quarter. Allen field a very short punt
after the lose ball was recovered, and
the Bulldogs offense took over at the
Hardee 5. Two plays later, Xavier Gaines
went around right end, uncontested,
for a 28-7 lead four minutes into the
third quarter.
That when things really started to get
confusing, for the teams, the fans and
the referees.
The Wildcats did not wilt, how-
ever, putting together a 65-yard drive,
capped by a two-yard run from Keyonte
Holley to cut the lead to 28-14 with 3:40
remaining in the fourth quarter.


Frostproof's next possession is when
Xavier Gaines was benched for complain-
ing over a flag for illegal helmet contact
- a borderline call at best made on
what would have been a big pass play for
the Bulldogs, which continued to turn
the tide in Hardee's favor.
Hardee then made it a one pos-
session game with 8:36 to play in the
fourth, converting two fourth downs
after starting a drive at the Bulldog 48,
when Barker went up the middle from
15-yards out to cut the lead to 28-21.
Those turned out to be the final points
of the night.
Both teams came into Friday's action
with records of 2-3.
Frostproof will be back in action
next Friday in its second district game
of the season. Having lost already to
Fort Meade, the Bulldogs are 0-1 in the
four-team district, and will make their
longest road trip of the fall, to Cardinal
Mooney High in Sarasota.


Frostproof's Xavier Gaines bursts past some
Hardee defenders for a good gain Friday night
during first quarter action in Frostproof.


PHOTOS BY K.M. THORNTON SR.

The Bulldogs defense came up big, especially late in the game, and showed good teamwork,
demonstrated here by Devonte Perry (15), Marcus Bobb (10) and Cecil Cherry (3).



'dIlk,


Cecil Cherry
always seems to
run hard, and
it always seems
to take two or
three defenders

Heartworm Disease


Many pet owners have heard of
heartworm disease but do not fully
understand it. This article will at-
tempt to explain what heartworm dis-
ease is, how it is contracted and what
affect it can have on your pet.
Heartworm disease is a serious
and potentially fatal condition caused
by parasitic worms living in the heart
and vessels of the chest. The disease
is spread by the mosquito. Although
heartworm disease is considered en-
demic in all of the United States, it is
more prevalent in areas where there
are more bodies of water and the cli-
mate is more temperate, thus allowing
for greater mosquito development.
The life cycle of the heartworm
(Dirofilaria immitus) is relatively
long as parasites go. It takes 7-9
months for the worm to fully devel-
op.* The cycle begins when a mos-
quito takes a blood meal from an in-
fected animal, causing the immature
form of the heartworm (microfilaria)
to be ingested by the mosquito. The
heartworm goes through several lar-
val transformations within the mos-
quito and eventually migrates to the
head and mouth parts of the mosquito
where they become infective.
When the mosquito bites a dog,
the larva enters the host's body
through the puncture hole made by
the mosquito's mouth parts. The
larvae stay in the tissue under the
entrance wound for a period of time
and then they begin to migrate toward
the heart and lungs. Once the larvae
change to the adult form, they are
able to penetrate the veins and travel
into the heart and lungs.
The heartworms are male and fe-
male and they reach sexual maturity
2795928


at around 120 days post infection.
When they mate and reproduce, the
immature form (microfilaria) begin to
circulate in the blood stream and the
whole cycle starts again.
The adult heartworms, within the
vessels of the lungs and heart, create
disease, both through their live pres-
ence as well as through the inflamma-
tory reaction they create when they
die. The signs of heartworm disease
are very subtle in the beginning.
They present as exercise intolerance
and then progress to more severe
signs such as coughing, respiratory
difficulty, lethargy and eventually
heart failure.
The American Heartworm Society
recommends yearly testing for all dogs
in all parts of the United States. They
also recommend year-round adminis-
tration of a heartworm preventative.
Giving an approved heartworm
prevention year-round, dispensed by
a licensed veterinarian is important
in controlling this disease. Off-label
medications can be detrimental to a
dog's health because they are not ap-
proved for use in a dog and may not
be safe for all breeds.
If your dog is over 6 months of
age, your veterinarian will do a heart-
worm screening test to make sure that
your dog is negative for the parasite
before beginning preventative. If
your dog tests positive, he/she will
need to be treated with a product that
kills the adult worm. This product's
brand name is Immiticide and is giv-
en intramuscularly. The American
Heartworm Society recommends us-
ing a three-injection protocol for this
treatment to increase the efficacy of
the worm kill.


Fortunately, there are products
to prevent heartworm disease. They
come in oral, topical or injectable
form and are very effective if given
properly. The topical and oral medi-
cations must be given monthly. Dos-
es should not be missed because this
can cause your pet to be exposed and
possibly infected with heartworm.
If you miss doses, your veterinarian
will probably recommend testing im-
mediately and then again in four to
six months to make sure that the dog
was not exposed during the lapse in
coverage.
Changing products in between
your regularly scheduled testing is not
recommended. If you change prod-
ucts and the dog tests positive on its
next test, it will be very difficult to de-
termine which product is responsible.


Our environment here in the
state of Florida supports the devel-
opment of the heartworm all year
long. It is very important that you
start your dog on preventative as
soon as possible and keep him/her
on it for life. Yearly testing is also
recommended to make sure that
the product being administered is
working effectively.
Please feel free to contact Dr.
Thompson with any questions on this
subject or with suggestions for future
topics.

Bok welcomes new carillonneur on Oct. 20


D'hollander:


Geert D'hollander, the new Singing
Tower carillonneur at Bok Tower
Gardens, makes his debut perfor-
mances during the Boktoberfest plant
sale Oct. 20.
Visitors enjoy free admission to the
Gardens all day for the fourth annual
event, and at 1 and 3 p.m. can experi-n
ence the music of the bells from the
internationally acclaimed composer,
performer and instructor.
The Singing Tower carillon is a
collection of 60 stationary bells con-
nected to a piano-like instrument that
plays music at the top of the tower.
Much like a quarterback for a football
team or a conductor for the sympho-
ny, a carillonneur is the face behind
the music of the Singing Tower.
"It's an honor to join the Gardens
and a privilege to be chosen for this
much coveted position," D'hollander
said. "The Singing Tower carillon is
regarded as one of the world's finest
instruments of its kind and I look
forward to furthering its international
reputation."
Hailing from Belgium, D'hollander
has taught, composed and performed
all over Europe, and has played
the Gardens' carillon several times
before, including at five previous
International Carillon Festivals.
D'hollander is an acclaimed musi-
cian and has been the first prize win-
ner in about 30 international competi-
tions for carillon and/or composition.
In 2008, he was awarded the Berkeley
Medal of Honor for Distinguished
Service to the Carillon, which is The
University of California's top honor.
In 2011, he won the prestigious Dutch
"ANV-Visser Neerlandia Prize" with his
carillon composition "Ciacona."
According to Bok Tower Gardens
President David Price, "Geert had been
scheduled to be a composer-in-resi-
dence at the Gardens when we were
starting our search to fill the carillon-
neur position. I first heard him play
over 20 years ago and again several
times at our international carillon
festivals and was taken by his mastery
of the carillon and the emotion he
played with."
"We put together a search commit-
tee to find a carillonneur, but over the
course of Geert's time here I realized
he had all the attributes we were
looking for performer, composer,
teacher and on top of that a per-
sonality that can charm the public.
The planets just lined up for us both,"
Price said.
D'hollander has been playing the
carillon since his early.teens, but his
father, also a carillonneur, introduced

which dates back to 1929. His first concert

Gardens.

him to the instrument as soon as
Geert could walk.
"I grew tup with bells, they were
in my blood. But in the beginning,
I wasn't interested in the notes,"
D'hollander said. "I was more inter-
ested in climbing all those medieval
towers and touching doors that no one
had opened for a hundred years."
When D'hollander was 13, he
decided to pursue a career in
carillon and started classes at The
Royal Carillon School in Mechelen,
Belgium while still in high school.
Four years later, at only 17 years
old, he was the youngest person to
graduate with a degree in carillon
from that school.
He first saw the Gardens in 1982
right after his graduation when his
father toured him around the United
States, visiting carillons throughout
the country. The first carillon he
played in America was the Singing
Tower.
"I was very impressed with the
instrument, the whole setting, ev-
erything. It was like nothing I'd ever
experienced before," he said. "It's an
oasis of rest and the perfect natural
concert hall."
His career has taken him to vari-
ous countries and carillons. He was
appointed carillon professor at the
University of California Berkeley

where he performed and taught. He
also served as the carillon composi-
tion teacher at the Royal Carillon
School; the same school he studied at
as a teenager. Most recently he was the
carillonneur at the Antwerp Cathedral
and Belfry of Ghent.
D'hollander is only the fourth
carillonneur since the Singing Tower
was dedicated in 1929. Anton Brees
was the Singing Tower's first carillon-
neur from 1929 to 1968. The Anton
Brees Carillon Library in the tower
was established in 1968 and is the
largest and most comprehensive
carillon library in the world. Dedicated
entirely to the carillon and related
subjects, the library includes books,
periodicals, recital programs, music
scores, recordings, slides, photographs
and vertical files on bells, chimes and
bellfounding.
The second Singing Tower carillon-
neur was Milford Myhre, who retired
in June 2004 after 36 years of musical
service to the Gardens. Myhre studied
at the University of Nebraska, the
University of Michigan and briefly at
the Royal Carillon School "Jef Denyn"
in Belgium. Two CD recordings by
Myhre are available at the Tower and
Garden Gift Shop.
William De Turk resigned in October
2011 after 18 years as the Gardens'
third carillonneur. He was assistant
carillonneur and librarian from 1993
to 2004 before being promoted to
carillonneur. De Turk's interest in
research in the field of carillons and
bells has resulted in 11 published
articles. D'hollander will now continue

Bartow is going pink this weekend
as the Making Strides Against Breast
Cancer takes place at Mosaic Park.
Starting at 7:30 a.m., the annual
walk starts at the park goes to
Broadway, down to Main Street,
where walkers will make a right on
Jackson Avenue and go to Wilson,
back to Broadway and return to
Mosaic Park.
At the park there will be family
activities and children's games, a


food area featuring food from local
restaurants to buy, live entertainment
and group photos.
And it's all to help a good cause:
finding a cure for breast cancer. The
walk raises money for research and
support programs, educates women
about prevention and early detec-
tion and celebrates breast cancer
survivors.
Statistics from the American Cancer
Society show that 12 percent women


in the United States will develop
breast cancer in their lives and about
226,870 cases of invasive breast can-
cer will be diagnosed this year. About
39,510 women will die from breast
cancer in the next year.
Breast cancer is the second lead-
ing cause of cancer death in women,
exceeded only by lung cancer.
This year there are more than
2.9 million breast cancer survivors
in the United States.


There is still time to create a team
and those interested can contact
Eunice M. Hutto at 863-688-2326, ext.
5502 or email polk.msabc@cancer.org.
The schedule for the walk is regis-
tration at 7:30 a.m. From 7:30-9 a.m.
is the survivor's reception. At 9 a.m.,
the program starts and a pre-walk
and stretch begins at that time;
at 9:15 a.m. there is a survivors lead
and Hope Doves are released and
walk begins.

Tonsil stones: Not uncommon, seldom discussed


DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: What is the best way to get
rid of tonsil stones, besides sticking
my finger down my throat as far as I
can and trying to dislodge the smelly
things? More importantly, what is the
way to prevent tonsil stones? I never
had them until a year or so ago. S.M.
ANSWER: Tonsil stones, or tonsillo-
liths, are the not uncommon (one study
reported them in 7 percent of young
adults) but seldom discussed clusters
of calcified material that lodge in the
tonsils. Your tonsils, those oval-shaped
swellings on the sides of the back of
your throat, are important for the cells
of the immune system.
Tonsilloliths form in the crypts (deep
valleys) of the tonsil, and sometimes
are visible as white or yellow spots
when looking in the mirror. They
become bothersome if they are large
enough to cause discomfort or dif-
ficulty swallowing, but often they are
noticed because of their unpleasant
odor. Tonsilloliths often spontaneously
come out of the tonsils; they usually
are described as waxy or hard, with a
peculiar odor.
I don't recommend sticking your
finger in the back of your throat. The

gag reflex can be very strong, and the
tonsils have a very good blood supply,
so damaging them can be very bloody.
Some authorities recommend removal
using the tongue attachment of a
Waterpik (or similar device), but I have
had general success with saltwater
gargles. Very large or recurrent tonsillo-
liths are an indication for a visit to the
ENT doctor.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: I am writing to see if the
medicine I get in the United States is
the same that I get from India. I took
Evista by Eli Lilly, who says there is no
generic; however, my supplier from
India says there is a generic. A.O.
ANSWER: India has no patent


protection of medications, so many
Indian companies make versions of
U.S. pharmacologic drugs at greatly re-
duced cost. Some of the companies are
exceedingly reputable, and the drugs
are identical. However, you don't have
the guarantee of purity that comes with
government regulation of pharmaceu-
ticals in the United States and Canada.
While I understand wanting to save
money on an expensive medication,
you're taking a risk.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: I came down with a bout of
Bell's palsy a few years ago. My prob-
lem is that it didn't totally leave. So
I'm left with very limited movement
on the right side of my face. I do facial
exercises daily in hopes of regaining
the lost movement. I use a portable
stimulator on my face. Yet I have a
partially paralyzed face. I would like to
know if there's something else I could
do to correct this. And I'd like to know if
acupuncture would help. L.M.
ANSWER: Bell's palsy is, as you have
described, the loss of the ability to
move the muscles on one side of the
face. It can be caused by a virus, but
the exact cause is not certain.
Treatment works if it is begun


promptly, but most people with
Bell's palsy recover within a year. For
those people who, like you, have not
recovered within a year, I don't know
of any treatment that is effective in
improving function. Acupuncture has
not had beneficial effect. Since Bell's
palsy can affect the eyelid, a visit with
an ophthalmologist is a good idea for
people with persistent facial weakness,
in order to protect the eye.

Eat your fruits and veggies; repeat six more times


Happiness and good mental health
are highest among people who eat
seven portions of fruit and vegetables
each day, according to a University of
Warwick study.
Researchers studied the eating
habits of 80,000 Britons, and found
that feelings of well-being rose with
the number of servings of fruit and
vegetables, peaking at seven. Most
government health agencies recom-
mend at least five portions a day for
cardiovascular health and to reduce
cancer risk. Less than one-third of
Americans average even two servings
of fruit and vegetables per day. A serv-
ing is measured as 80 grams, or almost
3 ounces.
The study did not distinguish
between different types of fruit or
vegetables, though we're pretty sure
Brussels sprouts were not high on
the list.

What is a mortgage,

and what are the

benefits of different

kinds of mortgages?

A mortgage is a loan secured by a home buyer to
purchase a home. The loan is secured by the real
estate purchased. If the loan, or mortgage payment is
not paid, the financial institution that issued the loan
will repossess or foreclose on the property.
The most common mortgage is a fixed-rate mort-
gage which means your interest rate stays the same
for the term of the mortgage. The advantage of a
fixed-rate mortgage is that you always know exactly
how much
your mort- 1 Cynthia L. Wise
gage payme n t
will be each fF_ .
month for the '
term on the 't
mortgage. i
kind of Keystone Rellv Inc.
mortgage is
an Adjustable
Rate Mortgage (ARM). Your interest rate and monthly
payments usually start lower than a fixed rate mort-
gage. But your rate and payment can change either up
or down, as often as once or twice a year. The adjust-
ment is tied to a financial index, such as the U.S.
Treasury Securities index. The advantage of an ARM is
that you may be able to afford a more expensive home
because your initial interest rate will be lower.
There are government mortgage programs, includ-
ingVA and USDA programs. FHA doesn't actually

make loans but it insures loans so that if buyers de-
fault for some reason, the lenders will get their money.
This encourages lenders to give mortgages to people
who might not otherwise qualify for a loan. Talk to
your bank or real estate agent for helpful information.
What are the different types of lenders, and how
do I choose the right one for me?
Lenders give you the money to purchase your
home. They are named based on how they acquire
their clients and what they do with.your loan. A few
examples of lenders are; Retail, Wholesale, Mortgage
bankers, Portfolio, mortgage brokers, correspondent
and online lender. Again, discuss with your local bank
representative, real estate agent or someone you trust
to analyze your situation to make the right choice.


Are there any mortgages especially designed for
first-time buyers?
There are several programs for first time home buy-
ers. People who have never owned a home are good
candidates but in some programs first time home
buyer could be people who have not found a home
within the last three years. You may have to meet
certain income restrictions to qualify for a first time
home buyer loan. You will have to live in the home as
your primary residence.
These programs are not for rental properties. The
home most likely has to meet some requirements. It
must be in good condition and free from any safety
hazards. Again, check with your lender or real estate

Almost Ancient Pots


From Mud Pies to Marvelous

Florida weather can be weird. No argument there.
Thus, potted plants in Florida can be a pain. Without
proper drainage and air circulation, the roots stay wet
too long and can mildew. Ick! But never fear; Almost
Ancient Pots has the solution.
Using the unique Hypertufa technique that origi-
nated in Great Britain, your potted plants can be
breathe easily again. The unusual, but super ef-
fective, method is perfect for Florida's muggy, hot
weather.
It looks like rock, but it's not! Melanie Palmrose
uses a mixture of all natural ingredients, including
peat moss, perlite, vermiculite and portland cement.
Through a seemingly odd process, the finished pots
emerge with excellent drainage and air circulation,
and they're considerably less heavy than traditional
concrete.
But don't take our word for it; you have to see


these for yourself. Not only will she be selling her
rustic pots at Boktoberfest, but owner and artisan
Melanie also offers classes in making these pots
yourself at her home garden in Jacksonville. Get
down and dirty with the mud pies, or leave the
messy part to her, either way her products are un-
like any other.
An eclectically talented artisan, Melanie can be
found

.- But taking
the time
:, --. ; -,- .-., for peace


within her varied schedule is important to Melanie.
"Making planters and gardening are my daily
meditations. I truly zone out when weeding and go to
a quiet place all my own," says Melanie.
Visit her website www.almostancientpots.com for
more information about her workshops, products and
her garden.

BOKTOBERFEST


Local honey doesn't just taste good,
it's good for you, too! Help alleviate
yucky seasonal allergies by religiously
eating local Central Florida honey. The
natural, unprocessed nectar keeps bits
of pollen in the honey, which has shown
to boost immunity over time. Just a
couple teaspoons a day of natural local
honey a few months before allergy sea-
son and you'll be wondering why you
didn't start this years ago. Do yourself
a favor and help your body develop
immunity to the blooming menaces.
Eden's Nectar Honey in Dunedin only
gets their honey from Central Florida
beekeepers. Each season, beekeepers
move their hives to a different location
to keep the bees pollinating the blos-
soming fruits, like strawberries and
blueberries in the winter
and watermelon in the
summer.
S Most su-
g- .permarket
processed
honey is heated
to make the bot-
ding process faster,


which .
speeds .
production '
but also ,.
loses much -,
of the
healthiness .
that the
honey had
in the first
place.
"Making
good l
health .
sweet"
is Eden's Nectar's motto, as they help
people incorporate delicious honey into
their healthy lifestyles.

QUOTE / TESTIMONIAL
There are four seasons to choose
from: winter, spring, summer or fall,
and they're available in 12 ounce bears
and 1 or 2 pound jars. Eden's Nectar
Honey is the perfect affordable solution
to the allergy problems that afflict so
many Floridians. For more information,

Landscaping for Wildlife


Marc and Terry Godts fell in love
twice; once with each other, and again
with the Lake 7,
Wales Ridge.
"It's an ancient
beach, with spe- .
cialized, fascinat-
ing plants," says .
Marc. "So little of
it remains, we're
trying to save
some of the spe- '
cies by propagat-
ing them, growing Marc Godts
them and planting
them back into restoration sites and in
the landscape. It's very gratifying work."
The couple met at a Florida Native
Plant Society meeting 18 years ago,
trained with The Nature Conservancy
on the endangered plants of the Lake
Wales Ridge, and started growing
uplands plants as a hobby.
Together they started Central Florida's
newest native nursery: Green Isle
Gardens in Groveland. What began
as a wholesale nursery in 1998 now
specializes in landscape design and
installation for homeowners throughout
Florida.


Due to an increase in the demand for
native landscapes, they now offer 120
species of native Florida plants and love
being able to create backyard wildlife
habitats for their customers.
Marc, along with his wife Terry, owns
and operates Green Isle Gardens. Marc
is a trained hor-
ticulturalist who
.p designs native
landscapes and
-- installs them with
., the help of a small
S" staff. "I enjoy be-
S < ing outdoors and
. .' I love the Florida
. .:. -' 7' heat."


Terry Godts


Terry runs the
office and works
on marketing,
especially keeping


.1


up with social media.
Marc and Terry encourage homeown-
ers to landscape for the benefit of native
wildlife, which has suffered from loss
of habitat, and for a healthy planet.
"Native plants provide food and shelter
for wildlife, save on water, and don't
require pesticides and fertilizers. They
benefit us all!"

It's not all about selling orchids;
it's about sharing in the love of
them. Gross Orchids
loves to teach, wheth-
er you're buying your
first orchid, or you
need some help with
the ones you already
have. You won't find *'* .
garden jargon or big
biology words here,
just a friendly and
highly knowledgeable
grower ready to answer any ques-
tions in easy-to-understand terms.
"We will gladly make plant rec-
ommendations based upon your
skill level and potential growing
location," says owner and operator,
Glenn Gross. "We will never recom-
mend plants that are beyond your
ability to care for."
Glenn can even help the expe-
rienced flower collectors cultivate
their potted and mounted gardens
and he usually carries all the orchid
potting supplies that you'd need
to get started or increase your
collection. Glenn's orchids are also
perfectly suited for Florida's fickle
climate.

Society

Naturally Native

The Heartland Chapter Florida Nitive
Plant Society returns to Boktoberfest to
promote the preservation, conservation
and restoration of Florida's native plants
and their communities. With bi-month-
ly meetings focusing on educational
presentations about native plants, field
trips and volunteer activities, the Polk
County, Society joins more than 70
non-profit organizations throughout -
the United States and Canada whose
mission is the protection of this impor-
tant component of our eco-system.
The Society will sell books including
field guides to native plant identifica-
tion and landscaping with native plants
and a large selection of native plants


which will be displayed according to
the wet, mediumor dry soils that they
are best suited to grow. Members will
answer questions as to why natives are
important for the.balance of nature. It's
especially important in Florida \\here
invasive exotic pest plants-such as me.-
laleuca, Australian pine and Brazilian
pepper crowd out natives and can be
water hogs that have an expensive price
tag to eradicate. Growing natives also
helps support local wildlife, birds and
butterflies that have a relationship with
native plants and rely on them for food,
shelter and nesting.

Visit www.fnps.org to learn about
their work and conservation efforts in
cooperation with Bok Tower Gardens.

"Unlike many other flowers, or-

Geert D'hollander Debuts


on the Bells


Geert D'hollander, the new Singing
Tower musician at Bok Tower Gardens,
will host his debut performance during
the Oct. 20 Boktoberfest plant sale
and German festival. At 1 and 3 p.m.,
visitors can enjoy the premiere of
Geert's music from the internationally
acclaimed composer, performer and
instructor.
The Singing Tower carillon is a col-
lection of stationary bells connected
to a piano-like instrument that plays
music at the top of the tower. Much like
a quarterback for a football team or a
conductor for the symphony, a carillon-
neur is the face behind the music of the
Singing Tower.
Hailing from Belgium where he
taught, composed and performed all
over Europe, Geert has played the
Gardens' carillon several times before,
including at five of the International
Carillon Festivals. He is only the fourth
carillonneur since the Singing Tower
was dedicated in 1929.
Geert is an acclaimed musician
and has been the first prize winner in
about 30 international competitions for
carillon and/or composition. In 2008,
he was awarded the Berkeley Medal
of Honor for Distinguished Service to
the Carillon, which is The University of
California's top honor.
Geert has been playing the carillon
bells since he was 13 years old but his


father, also a carillonneur, introduced
him to the instrument as soon as Geert
could walk.
"I grew up with bells, they were in my
blood. But in the beginning, I wasn't
interested in the notes," said Geert. "I
was more interested in climbing all
those medieval towers and touching
doors that no one had opened for a
hundred years."
When Geert was 13, he decided to
pursue a career in carillon and started
classes at The Royal Carillon School in
Mechelen, Belgium while still in high
school. Four years later, at only 17 years
old, he was the youngest person to
graduate with a degree in carillon from
that school. He first saw the Gardens in
1982 right after his graduation, when
his father toured him around the United
States, visiting carillons throughout the
country. The first carillon he played in
America was the Singing Tower.
"I was very impressed with the instru-
ment, the whole setting, everything. It
was like nothing I'd ever experienced
before," he said. "It's an oasis of rest and
the perfect natural concert hall."
Now at the Gardens, visitors can
experience his unique musical tal-
ent on the carillon as he debuts at
the fourth annual Boktoberfest plant
sale, performing two live concerts at
1 and 3 p.m. Don't miss this unique
opportunity!


A rose by any other name than
Nelsons' Florida Roses wouldn't be as
attractive to Florida's major attractions.
In addition to many public gardens
throughout Florida, Busch Gardens,
Leu Gardens, Epcot, Universal Studios,
Walt Disney World, Sea World and other
parks all plant Nelsons' Roses for visi-
tors to enjoy. The Rose Walk at Epcot's
International Flower & Garden Festival
exclusively features numerous varieties
of Nelsons' Roses on either side of a
long winding path that's the centerpiece


for the festival.
Located on 25 acres in Apopka with
more than 40 years in the nursery busi-
ness, the Nelson family has gained an
extensive reputation throughout Florida
and the nation. One of their secrets
for growing roses that thrive in the
Sunshine State is their fortuniana root
stock. Learn more secrets to success

A Natural Farm and Educational Center


What's better than picking fruit in
your own backyard? Knowing it was
raised completely chemically free, of
course!
A Natural Farm and Educational
Center (formerly Exotic Diffusion)
specializes in naturally-raised olive
trees, strawberry, blackberry, blueberry
and pineapple plants, grown without
any chemical fertilizer or pesticides. All
plants come in small pots to make han-
dling and transporting your new edible
plants easy. They use compost to feed
their fruit plants the nutrients they need
and plan to eventually offer classes on
organic gardening, composting and
earthworm raising at their nursery in


Howey in the Hills, Florida.
But the order of the day at
Boktoberfest will be small strawberry
pots; easy enough to plant anywhere,
and small enough to fill your wagon or
car trunk, because who can have too
many strawberries?

If you make a mess, you

For them, the "Go Green"
movement isn't just a fad; it's a
way of life.
"Our generation is responsi-

and we became a 'throw away'
society. We did not know then
the harm we were doing. If
we had, we never would have
bought into that lifestyle. Now
that w e know, we need to do
things differently. We need to
make a change," they say.
, And they have made that
Change.
Our Vital Earth uses earth-
worms to create healthier soil
because they have the ability
to convert organic waste. like

they prefer early morning sunshine,
humid conditions, open air, not much
direct light and plenty of water, but
when you consider that they can grow
on almost anything without soil, you'll
realize how versatile these persnickety
plants actually are!
A common misconception about
airplants is that they're parasitic. That's
wrong; they don't ever suck nutrients
away from the trees that they're on.

Hopkins Nursery


Quality, not quantity, is the goal at
Hopkins Nursery. Originally a plant
retailer, Hopkins Nursery has since con-
verted into a wholesaler to better serve
the needs of their customers and place
a greater emphasis on reaching more
people with their high quality plants.
Bill and Barbara Hopkins started the
tropical fruit nursery in the late 70s.
Both fourth generation agriculture and
horticulturists, they had grown up in


plant-loving homes so it was natural
for them to continue the legacy. Back
then, finding plant material for tropical
fruit nurseries was difficult and often
required traveling to other countries to
collect. Now you can find the fruits of
their labor at Boktoberfest!
Their son, Billy, became interested in
horticulture in high school after spend-
ing time with friends who also owned a
nursery. After graduating from college,


he came into the nursery full time. He
now handles the technical processes
and production.
Apparently, plant people attract plant
people because in 2006, Billy married
Rachel Lukas Hopkins, also raised in an
agricultural family. The legacy contin-
ued as Rachel gave birth to Hannah Joye
in 2007. 5-year-old Hannah is showing
an interest in the family plant business
and can identify many species already.


Hopkins Nursery provides high
quality tropical fruit, spice, butterfly,
fragrant and ornamental plants through
a combination of time-tested tech-
niques and new growing technology.
They have over 100 years combined
experience in the plant nursery industry
and they pass that extensive knowledge
to their customers.

his extraordinary Florida flora knowl-

Originally from New Jersey, George
came to Florida in 1962 to attend col-

Botany from USF Tampa. His resume
since then has been filled with various
nurseries and garden associations,

He travels each year to multiple
