Mid-Youth junior Bulldogs

fall in playoff semi-finals


The playoff run
for the Frostproof
Bulldogs in the
Mid Florida Youth
Football Junior
Division came
to an end this
past weekend at
the hands of the
Osceola Panthers.
Still, it was a
great season for
the local side. It
was just that kind
of day Sunday,
as the picture
shows, as Chester

Frostproof lost,

Frostproof trailed
Osceola 18-7 in
the first half,
but the Panthers
pulled away in
the second half
for a victory that
ended Frost-

City gives OK on



police cameras


Decades-old tax funds will be

used to keep crime in check


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Smile, Frostproof, you'll soon be
on the sheriff department's candid
camera.
City leaders last week decided to
spend more than $130,000 intax
money collected back in the 1980s
to fight crime in 2013 and beyond
by approving a video surveillance
system that will train its camera lenses
on business areas near downtown
and near the intersection of Scenic
Highway and County Road 630.
A total of five cameras would be fo-
cused on Wall Street Park, Fewox Park,
city hall and the downtown business
area. Councilwoman Diana Webster
Biehl suggested, and her city council
colleagues agreed, to also fund a cam-
era in the north business district area
around McDonald's, Dollar General
and two banks. That camera would
add about $10,000 to the total cost of


the plan, meaning the city's total cost
would be around $140,000.
"It's not for snooping, it's simply for
crime prevention," Croley noted.
"We don't like the idea of everything
being surveyed all the time, but on the
other hand, it provides a great deal of
security," Biehl added.
Croley said the system might actually
save taxpayers money by cutting down
on property crimes that the city ends
up paying for.
"We've had quite a bit of vandalism
at both parks," she said.
The money has actually been in an
account for more than three decades,
and stems back to a city council
meeting in August, 1985, when council
members suggested a special fund
to be used to fight drug crimes in
Frostproof, according to City Manager
T.R. Croley. Voters approved the special
one-year tax of one dollar per mil in a

Greathouse fundraiser Saturday


The Frostproof community will
come together this weekend, like no
other community can, with a special
fundraiser for the Greathouse family.
Candy Greathouse and her 4-month-
old daughter Leilani lost their lives in
a car accident in late October, and a
4-year old daughter Arianna continues
to battle with life-threatening injuries at
Tampa General Hospital, where family
members including husband Teddy
have kept a round-the-clock vigil.
Although improved from the hours
right after the U.S. 27 crash, she re-
mains in critical condition, according to
information supplied Tuesday from the
Polk County Sheriff's Office.
The centerpiece of the fundraiser,
which will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at
Frostproof's First Baptist Church, 96 B
St., will be a special "Mexican" dinner,


which for $8 will feature pulled pork,
rice, beans and a drink. During the
event, there will also be a raffle, as well
as bake sale.
Funds will be used to help defray
family and medical expenses incurred
by the tragedy.
Tickets are available from a number
of the event organizers, including Laura
Sherrill, Estella Bass, Lori Lyles, Brittani
Weidemann, Diane Cannon, Karen
Williams and Jennifer Lightsey. For
information or ticket information, or to
make a raffle or silent auction donation,
contact Sherrill at 863-528-6089 or Bass
at 863-605-1524.
For those who might not be able
to attend, but would like to make a
donation, check's are payable to "Teddy
Greathouse" can be mailed to P.O. Box
1253, Frostproof, FL 33841.

VIEWPOINT



Solve testing problem through checkbook


At this point, you'd think the dangers of
texting while driving would be obvious to
everyone.
Not long ago, right here in Polk County,
a 34-year-old man received and sent more
than 50 text messages during an hour-long
spree that ended when his Chevy Camaro
collided head-on with another vehicle, kill-
ing two people.
You would think we would be ready to pass
a texting ban.
All distracted driving is dangerous driving.
But texting has become so commonplace
that many people think nothing of it.
They don't put down the phone while
driving.
Distractions occur.
People die.
Some quick statistics from the National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration:
A texting driver is 23 times more likely


Our Viewpoint
than a non-texting driver to get into an
accident.
Nearly 20 percent of all fatalities in
distracted-driving cases involved cell phone
use, according to a 2009 report. The death
count was 995.
The under-20 population made up the
largest proportion of distracted drivers.
A 2011 poll indicated nearly 50 percent of
all drivers younger than 35 sent or received
texts while driving.
One survey showed 86 percent of teen
drivers admitted driving while distracted,
even though they knew it was dangerous.
A third said they didn't think "anything
bad" would happen.
Why is it important to have a law against
driving while texting? The obvious answer is
that it will save lives.


But how?
One way is through the power of the purse.
When police officials are required to fill out
reports about the cause of crashes and there
is a violation given for texting, then insur-
ance companies will begin to take note and
most assuredly, rates will rise.
Those who violate the law will pay more
and some will decide that it is not worth the
cost.
They may think of their own checkbook
before the safety of others.
Sad but true.
Remember, though, the state of Florida
also eventually got around to enacting laws
that made it illegal for people to drive with-
out seat belts. The threat of a ticket goes a
long way toward changing behavior.
That needs to happen with texting. We
need to join the other 39 states that have
already banned the practice.


Letters to the editor


They made it

hard for us to vote


My father taught me some time ago,
the tactics used by those in political po-
sitions at times are contrary to the most
basic rules of morality and decency. He
taught me in the game of politics, the
way this game is played in which power
and ability to govern reigns supreme, is
not what the electorate desires, and the
electorate is totally disrespected by the
politically powerful.
He mentioned illegal registrations,
movements of voting precincts to
another section at the last minute,
shortening of voting hours, etc., as
some of the examples of egregious
violations to the integrity of the system.
This type of tactic in which the pri-
mordial idea is to make it hard for the
electorate to vote was clearly on display
of this unconscionable political misbe-
havior was present, the political party in
power had the majority of votes in their
governments, and had total control of
the same. it is clear Florida is one of


those states. To come now and hide
behind useless studies, ordered by the
governor, to find out what happened in
the last election.
Florida's government knows clearly
what happened. This government was
the laughing stock of this nation, the
governor was an active participant in
the charade; now he comes with the
idea that a study must be done to see
what went wrong during last election.
That idea is as ludicrous as a "three
dollar peso." The party to which these
people, devoid of moral character
belong, should expelled them from
the party summarily. This nation, who
professes to be the bastion of democ-
racy before the free world, should not
tolerate these politicians that suppress,
harass, intimidate, or deny the vote
to the electorate in any way, shape or
form. These politicians should be jailed.
Manuel Crespo
Lake Wales


What do you think?

What do you think the state should
do to fix the voting situation in Florida?
What do you think of what Mr. Crespo wrote in his letter to the editor today.
Another election has come and gone and Florida seems to have become the
laughingstock of the nation.
Do you think the Florida officials did a good job when they changed election
laws this year or should they have left things the way the were before?

Kudos to the woman


behind new, fair districts


The game changer in Florida's 2012
elections is a woman who wasn't run-
ning, who did her campaigning more
than two years ago and whose name is
little remembered in the ebb and flow
of political events.
The Democratic Party, President
Obama's statewide organization,
Sen. Bill Nelson's campaign and all
the party's nominees and volunteers
deserve credit for the significant step
toward a comeback Democrats scored
last week. But Ellen Freidin's work mat-
tered a lot.
She and a few dewey-eyed optimists
produced the "Fair Districts Florida"
amendments. They didn't do it for the
Democrats, the Republicans or any
candidate, but everyone knew which


Bill Cotterell


party would benefit from the new rules.
The twin constitutional amend-
ments, setting forth criteria for the state
Legislature must follow in drawing new
political boundaries for legislative and
congressional districts, were adopted by

Bok gearing up for festive holiday season


Christmas at Bok Tower Gardens is a
celebration for the whole family with the
traditional Pinewood home tour, new
workshop activities, poinsettia displays,
member events, holiday concerts, winter
walking tours and more.
The highlight of this seasonal event
is the Holiday Home Tour at Pinewood
Estate. Now in its 18th year, volunteers
and sponsored designers have decorated
the 20-room, Mediterranean-style man-
sion on the Gardens property. Pinewood
will be open every day Nov. 23 through
Jan. 6, 2013 for self-guided tours.
This year's room design partners
include: Nettle Creek, Water's Edge
Retirement Community, Seaside Sisters
of Florida, Lori Draper's Furniture and
Accessories, Cornerstone Catering &
Events, Dr. and Mrs. Salud, Garden Party
Florals, and Citizens Bank and Trust.
"The Holiday Home Tour is our largest
fundraiser of the year thanks to scores
of visitors who have made this event a
family tradition over the years," said
Jennifer Beam, Director of Visitor
Services & Programs. "We are so excited
to finally open Pinewood the day after
Thanksgiving after a month of install-
ing more than 15 Christmas trees,
hundreds of feet of garland, masses of
faux snow and thousands of lights."
Each room has a different focus, but
they all coordinate with the master
theme of "The Nature of the Holidays,"
as the designers concentrate on making
the decor naturally classy. Every room
is decorated by a different sponsored
designer and the hallways, entrances
and other spaces are adorned by
Pinewood volunteers who have hand-
crafted most of the decorations.
"We used technology a little bit
differently than we have in the past,

63 percent of Florida voters in 2010.
The mandates require that lines be
drawn without regard to incumbency,
political party or other partisan con-
siderations, and that the new districts
be contiguous and as compact as
possible.
Legislators also have to protect
minority access under the 1965
Voting Rights Act and mandates of
federal courts, and avoid unneces-
sary subdivision of cities and coun-
ties, in crafting new districts. But,
other than that, it's just tough luck
if two incumbents wind up running
against each other, or some beloved
leader of one party winds up in a
district inhabited almost entirely by

Pinewood at Bok Tower Gardes is expected to draw some 10,000 visitors this holiday season.


the volunteer design team so they
can pin different ideas," said Elyse
Gerstenecker, Pinewood Estate
Coordinator. "We also focused on
crafting more and they made a lot of
the pieces you see in the house. Some
are as detailed as hand-painted bird-
house ornaments, and others are larger,
featured pieces like wreaths."
In the room Gerstenecker designed for
Bok Tower Gardens, she incorporated
both educational and creative elements.
In addition to her text panels that share
historical information about Pinewood,
she also decorated the room in the style
of a 1930's living room.
"I found an old article in American
Home magazine that talked about how
to make a centerpiece for Christmas,"
Gerstenecker said. And she created
exactly what they suggested-a wooden
bowl of popcorn balls with evergreens


voters of the other party.
Naturally, such common sense got
on the ballot by public petition. You
wouldn't expect the politicians to take
politics out of politics.
The Republican Party, controlling
the legislative and executive branches
of state government, fought the
amendments all the way. Democrats
supported them either out of a
warm, fuzzy sense of fair play, or a
realization that these changes would
move the ball their way.
At public expense, the GOP legisla-
tive leadership went to court in a
losing attempt to keep the public
from voting on the amendments. They
warned that the changes would be a
logistical Rubik's Cube like telling
candidates to line up alphabetically
according to age, weight and height.
As former Senate Democratic leader
Dan Gelber points out, there were 17


and red berries. "It's neat be able to give
people an idea of what things were like
back in ye olden times, even though it
wasn't really that long ago," she said.
With as much work that goes into each
detail of the home decor, the Holiday
Home Tour wouldn't be possible without
the dedicated help from the Gardens'
volunteers.
"The staff, volunteers and design-
ers who make this event happen have
worked tirelessly during the last year to
plan for a spectacular Christmas display,"
Beam said.
Visitors young and old can experience
the decked halls of Pinewood for free on
Christmas Day from noon to 5 p.m.
For tickets to the 18th Annual Holiday
Home Tour at Pinewood Estate, visit
www.boktowergardens.org/christmas, or
call 863-676-1408 for information about
all Christmas events and programs.


House races decided by fewer than six
points. The only Senate race pitting
incumbents was won by Sen. Maria
Sachs of Delray Beach, the Democrat.
The party is suing over the Senate
and congressional plans, despite a
pickup of four seats in the U.S. House.
Even with a more level playing
field, Democrats who outnumber
Republican voters in Florida are
still down 76-44 in the House and
26-14 in the Senate. In football terms,
they made a field goal last week, not a
couple touchdowns.
Legislators complied with Fair
Districts Florida, with only minor
dislocation of shoulders patting them-
selves on the back for doing right after
exhausting all options. The Florida

vote in November of that year.
Police officials from that time, when
the city operated its own independent
force, confirmed that they indeed
did spend funds from that tax in the
drug fighting effort. In fact, they said,
before voters approved the tax, the
force actually had solicited private
donations to be used in the fight.
The money was transferred in 2006
when Frostproof abolished its depart-
ment and contracted with the sheriff's
department for its police protection.
The amount totaled $130,214.84, and
Croley noted it could only be used for
crime fighting purposes.
The system's video feed will not be
available in patrol vehicles, but rather
will be transmitted to monitors in
the Frostproof sheriff's substation in
city hall where it will be stored for 30
days. If a crime is committed in an -
area where the camera is trained, law
enforcers will be able to go back and
look at the recorded images at the
time a problem is suspected.
The city would be the owners of the
system, and the initial cost includes
a three-year maintenance plan. City
officials have already traveled to
Orlando to look at a similar system
there, and Orlando officials have also
traveled to Frostproof to offer their
suggestions and expertise on how the
surveillance equipment could best be
deployed here.

the new Senate plat. The feds let the
congressional plan proceed.
We can only surmise what might
have happened without Freidin's
fair-districts work. With straight faces,
legislative leaders would certainly have
drawn safe districts for themselves and
their party, while packing Democrats
into as few districts as absolutely
necessary.
Or maybe, in a burst of public-spir-
ited altruism, they would have tossed
aside partisanship and ambition,
drawing the lines purely on the basis of
population and fair play.
Right. And maybe a fat, jolly fellow in
a red suit will slide down your chimney
next month.

Obama wins, and it wasn't close


It took until this last weekend for
Florida election officials to decide
that President Barack Obama indeed
did win the state presidential vote.
It was decided much more quickly
and decisively at Frostproof's Ben
Hill Griffin Jr. Elementary School.
Third though fifth grade students
at BHG participated in a Mock
Presidential Election on Nov. 5.
Students were given activity packets
titled "Let's Learn about Electing
the President" a week before the
election to help educate them about
the voting process.
Wes Wise, PTO President secured
the packets for each student from
the Supervisor of Elections office.
The Media Center was decorated
in red, white and blue with common
symbols of the democratic process
such as Uncle Sam, the bald eagle
and Stars and Stripes. Each class
entered the Media Center and four

The students thoroughly enjoyed
the "mock" voting process and
teachers commented it led to inter-

The votes were all tallied and an-

of the real presidential election.
There were no hanging chads or

when all the votes were counted,
Obama had won by a healthy mar-
gin with 246 ballots, exactly double
the amount of Republican chal-
lenger Mitt Romney who garnered
support of 123 students.

Tribute to veterans emotional


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

Tears welled, chins quivered
and voices choked at the Veterans
Memorial Ceremony that took place
at the Traditions adult community
clubhouse Saturday, Nov. 10. An
overflow audience of almost 200,
more than double anticipated by
organizers, were present for the
unveiling of a memorial dedicated
to those who had served.
Conducted by Mike Arangio, a
Vietnam veteran, and attended
by public servants such as Winter
Haven mayor J.P. Powell, Florida
Representative John Wood, and
Capt. William Mann (with the Polk
County Sheriff's Office, representing
Sheriff Grady Judd), the ceremony
began with a presentation of the
colors (U.S. Flag) by the Haines City
Junior ROTC, led by Lt. Col. John
Ingraham. Following the raising
of the flag and the singing of the
national anthem, Brigadier General
David MacInnes (United States
Marine Corp, retired) led the Pledge
of Allegiance. Afterward, after a
rendition of "God Bless America,"
performed by the Rays of Hope,
Arangio welcomed and thanked all
who were present.
Like several other reported cer-
emonies around Polk County, the
Veterans Day ceremony at Traditions
paid special tribute to those who
served in Vietnam.
"Mark Twain once said, 'Tis better
to deserve an honor and not receive
it, rather than receive it and not
deserve it,'" Arangio said in his
opening remarks. The time, long in
the making, had come for those who
had served in Vietnam to receive
their just due.
In his presentation, Rep. Wood
gave a brief history of Veterans Day.
Originally consecrated as Armistice
Day to honor those who had fought
in World War I, Wood told how the
change in name came about, which

was approved by both houses of
congress on June 1, 1954 and pro-
claimed by President Dwight David
Eisenhower on Oct. 8 of that same
year. Approved in 1926 by Congress,
in the intervening years since
Armistice Day and WW I, the U.S.,
said Eisenhower, had been involved
in two further military conflicts
in which Americans, living and
dead, had "joined the honor rolls."
Wood closed his remarks quoting
Eisenhower in that declaration:
"On that day let us solemnly
remember the sacrifices of all those
who fought so valiantly, on the seas,
in the air, and on foreign shores, to
preserve our heritage of freedom,
and let us reconsecrate ourselves to
the task of promoting an enduring
peace so that their efforts shall not
have been in vain."
It was also illuminated that
Florida is home to almost 2 million
military veterans.
Arangio spoke of a particular

incident that occurred while he was
serving and stationed in Vietnam. It
was, he said, the first time he would
be telling his tale in its entirety; a
tale that he only had begun speak-
ing of in drips and drabs just five
years ago. It involved an attack he
and his shipmates came under, and
how two of his mates risked their
lives racing to a munitions depot
and retrieving two full boxes of hand
grenades boxes that weighed
35 pounds apiece as mortars ex-
ploded around them. Heads nodded


in recognition as he concluded his
remarks with a statement those who
had served identified with.
"For those who fought for it,
freedom has a taste the protected
will never know," he said.
The ceremony came to a close
with the unveiling of the monu-
ment, and the closing prayer of
Pastor David Koon, who summa-
rized the day's event with a tribute
to veterans.
"We are the land of the free
because of the brave," said Koon.


New venture beckons Cindy Clemmons


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

It is with mixed emotions Cindy
Clemmons looks to the next chapter in
her career. After eight years as Public
Information Director for the Florida
Department of Transportation-District 1,
she leaves the post Thursday, Nov. 15. She is
returning to the private sector, in a related
transportation industry.
"It's a progression in my career," said
Clemmons. "I'm excited."
Her territory will be the southeastern
part of the U.S., and she will be doing a lot
of traveling. However, it will not be the first
time in her career she will be doing exten-
sive traveling. Prior to her having taken over
as public information director for FDOT in
2004, Clemmons was in the entertainment
industry.
After having earned her bachelor's degree
in design from Florida State University, she
headed to NewYork City and the "Great
White Way" (Broadway). Among her
endeavors there, she toured with Broadway
road shows. She also did costume design.
At one time she was with Parson-Meares
(which did a lot of ice shows), and later with
Vincent Costumes.
"I was their shopper," Clemmons said

of the Florida Department of Transportation.

ofVincent Costumes. "I bought all their
fabric."
That connection led to Broadway
producer Mel Howard, and eventually the
opportunity to tour Europe with actress
and author Shirley MacLaine. However,
living out of a suitcase began to pale.
"I lived on the road many years," said
Clemmons. "I got the opportunity to work
for Disney, put some roots down."


That was important for her, a 1987
graduate from Mulberry High School. While
with Disney, she was first with its internal
connection department Disney-MGM
Studios, where she oversaw the organiza-
tion's costumed cast members. They totaled
60,000. From there she moved onto Disney-
MGM Studios Disney's internal communi-
cation department and helped prepare and
communicate important messages for the
60,000 cast members.
Over the span of eight years, Clemmons
- who constantly emphasized the sup-
port and contribution of members of her
department, which she dubbed her "team"
- faced a number of challenges. One in
particular comes to the forefront.
"One of the first things we have to get
past is people's mistrust of government.
What my team and I have tried to do is be
empathetic to what people are saying," she
said. It can be daunting and not always an
easy thing to accomplish, yet it is rewarding
"One of the best things I look forward to is
getting that phone call where people are
upset, and it ending on a positive note."
Another challenge she and her team
has faced is whether the agency responds
to individual concerns. Clemmons said it
does, regardless what the issue might be.
"All it takes in one person who is


concerned and we'll put it in motion," she
said. Nor does it matter what scale the
concern is. "It doesn't matter the level. This
agency looks at it all."

Mix of emotions
Clemmons' imminent departure has
prompted deep feelings among those
who have worked with her over the years.
Including Clemmons, those in the public
information department are Cheri Kelley,
Lauren Hatchell and Ken Campbell (the
latter, the department's graphic artist, was
not available for comment).
"I feel glad and sad," said Kelley, the
department's administrative assistant, who
has been with FDOT 17 years. "Glad she is
taking the opportunity for a new venture,
and sad those new ventures are not here."
Hatchell, the public information special-
ist, has worked alongside Clemmons five
years.
"It's going to feel different," said Hatchell.
"I'm very excited for her."
She added one of the things the two of
them will miss is the teasing of one another
when a "stupid comment" either makes
appears in the newspaper. One of their
favorites was when Clemmons was quoted
about a project she had likened to "pushing
a 3,000 pound elephant through a pipe."

CSX project 'Biggest impact since orange tree' in Polk


8,500 jobs projected with new


State Road 60 rail transfer station


By BILL ROGERS
BROGERS@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
If Rep. John Mica's prediction about the
Winter Haven Rail Intermodal Terminal
comes true it will be huge for the area.
Speaking during last Thursday's cer-
emonial ground breaking for the state-
of-the-art terminal, Mica said, "It is going
to have the biggest impact since they
brought the orange tree to Polk County."
Mica was joined by many elected
officials, including Gov. Rick Scott, and
executives from several Florida-based
companies at the massive site located
on Pollard Road off of State Road 60 near
Alturas.
"This is about more than trains," said
Winter Haven Mayor J.E Powell. "It's
about putting people to work; it's about
growth."
According to an economic impact
study conducted by HDR Engineering,
construction of the Evansville Western
Railway terminal is projected to create up
to 8,500 annual jobs with a total annual
payroll of $282.2 million and generate
more than $10 billion in economic
development over a 10-year period and
add $900 million in state and federal tax
revenue.
The rail terminal will be built and
operated by Evansville Western, an
affiliate of Jacksonville-based CSX
Transportation. The terminal will serve
CSX's growing intermodal business and
allow CSX to serve customers in Orlando,
Tampa and South Florida, according to a
press release.
The terminal will be built on 318 acres
and will include five 3,000-foot loading
tracks and two 10,000-foot arrival and
departure tracks. The tracks will be
spanned by three electric Rail-Mounted
Gantry cranes that will unload and load
trains. The use of electric cranes instead
of diesel-powered cranes will help reduce
noise and emissions.
The terminal is adjacent to 930 acres
that CSX has an option to purchase from
the city of Winter Haven, the press re-
lease stated. Together, the two properties

will form the Winter Haven Integrated
Logistics Center.
Approximately 110 people will be
needed to operate the terminal on 24/7
basis, CSX spokesman Gary Sease said.
Some will probably be people that are
already working for CSX or Evansville
Western.
"It's a big deal because intermodal and
containerized freight is really growing
and is going to continue to grow," Sease
said. "The very basic reason for that is
that trucks have the flexibility to move
goods from a manufacturer's dock to the
rail terminal, place it on a train and then
we can take it for the long haul 600, 800
miles with incredible fuel efficiency.
"The truck on the other end can deliver
it right to the receiver's dock," he added.
"Like wise when containers come in from
overseas. In our global marketplace a lot
of manufacturing is taking place in Asia.
Those containers of goods can come in
and take a train to a distribution center
and then trucks can deliver from there.
Trucks and trains that used to be very very
tough competitors with each other are
now finding a lot of ways to work together
to the benefit of both industries."
Construction of the Evansville Western
terminal will create an estimated 200
construction jobs. Its contractors have
partnered with Polk Works to identify
qualified local suppliers and subcon-
tractors to provide jobs and supplier
opportunities.
Gov. Scott said unemployment in
Florida has dropped faster than any
other state in the country in the last two
years, but, "We still have 800,000 people
out of work.
"Days like this and all the jobs that will
be created here, I'm very appreciative of
everybody involved," he said.
Florida could be the number one
place in the United States for trade, the
governor said, adding that trade markets
around the world are growing.
From 2010 to 2011 trade worldwide in
Florida grew by 18 percent. He noted that
$149 billion in goods flowed through the
state during that period.
Scott talked about the expansion of
the Panama Canal. The volume of freight
moving through the Panama Canal will
double by 2025, he said.
"That means Florida will capture more
Asian and Latin American trade," the
governor said. "Today Florida handles
about 15 to 20 percent of Panama Canal
traffic. It's only logical that we will see
more commerce when we see that
project finished in 2014."
Scott highlighted several Florida-based
companies that have benefited from the
construction of the rail terminal.
"One thing that is great about this is
that there are a lot of local businesses
that are going to do well," he said.
Michael Ward, president, chairman
and CEO of CSX, said the project is on
schedule and the terminal is expected to
be operational by May 2014.
There has been concern about the
heavy truck traffic that is anticipated for
U.S. 27 and State Road 60. The answer to
that may be the proposed Central Polk
Parkway.

struction, the beginning phase of design

According to the Florida Department

just west of Pollard Road.
DOT Secretary Ananth Prasad attended


the ground-breaking event.
Prasad said he would like to see trucks
get off U.S. 27. He would prefer they use
the Florida Turnpike and noted that he
is working with a trucking association on
that issue.

Polk leaders have a new weapon in
their arsenal to attract new busi-
nesses here, thanks to county voters
which approved a ballot initiative in
voting last week.
The last time the "County Property
Tax Exemption" question appeared
on the ballot, in 2010, it failed by
less than 500 votes; it was the second
consecutive time, as it had appeared
on the 2008 ballot.
The exemption asked voters to
consider a property tax exemption
for new businesses, as well as the
expansion of existing businesses that
are considering creating new, full-
time jobs in the county. Its purpose
is to woo new businesses while at the
same time assist current employers.
This time voters gave Polk County
Commissioners the authority to


grant property
tax exemptions
by a vote of
123,483 to "
106,068, or
53.79 percent vs. -
46.21 percent.
Now-former
Commissioner
Bob English
attributed the
success this time
to the better Bob Engish
effort the BOCC
made explaining what the exemption
would mean; English was a chief
proponent of the measure during his
tenure.
"We spent $25,000 educating
voters," said English, This was
accomplished, he said, through
mailers and as the election ap-
proached, newspaper ads that were
published three times. "The ads were


well-worded, clear in what we hoped
to accomplish."
One of those goals was to dispel
erroneous perceptions the BOCC
learned about from voters following
the 2010 ballot. A number of them,
continued English, said they had
voted against the measure because
they feared it would bring in compe-
tition to existing businesses.
"Another objection was, people
were afraid we wouldn't come
through with our promises," he said.
The BOCC, through its effort to make
voters aware what was contained
in this year's proposal, addressed
those concerns. Yes, the measure
would safeguard against competi-
tion. English said one way it will
accomplish this is the effort to target
certain industries that have no, or
a very limited, presence in Polk
County, such as those in high-tech
and bio-tech, to name but two.


Stipulations were also tightened,
he said. As an example, a new busi-
ness would have to guarantee to
create a minimum number of jobs.
English offered another example.
Existing businesses that qualify for
the exemption would be eligible if it
purchased new equipment.
"Unfortunately, I won't qualify,"
quipped English. With his time in
office at an end his final day as
commissioner was election day he
will be returning full-time to the busi-
ness he owns, Lakeland-based Valiant
Products. He now will be turning his
attention to building the business up.
Looking back on the past eight
years, English said he was honored
the citizens gave him eight years
to serve, and said he accomplished
what he set out to do.
The "County Property Tax
Exemption" was one of his crowning
achievements.


First United Methodist Christmas Festival Dec. 1


It may be a few weeks out, but
there's a good chance of snow on
Dec. 1 in Frostproof, regardless of
the temperature.
That's because First United
Methodist Church will be holding
its annual Christmas Festival that
day, right before the Festival of
Trees debut at the Ramon and of
course everyone's favorite, the "of-
ficial" arrival of Santa during the


city's huge Christmas parade which
will be that evening.
The church event will feature
many of its popular offerings from
the past, including a chili-cook off,
and tons of fun for kids, including
maybe a little snow. We do know
for sure that there will be bounce
houses, pony rides and a petting
zoo for the little ones.
There will be games, vendors


and food for sale. The best news is,
other than the chili cook off and
food, everything is free.
For the chili cookoff, you can
vote for your favorite's, and there
will be prizes for the top three chili
vote getters.
Everyone is welcome to
help come celebrate the holiday
season. The church is located at
150 DeVane St.

may require surgery and can be very
serious.
Electric cords can be very danger-
ous if chewed. Please make sure the
cords are grounded and well hidden.
Small animals can be seriously af-
fected and even killed by electricity.
Make sure that your tree is secured
so that curious ones cannot knock it
over by playing around, under or in
it. Be sure not to put any chemicals
in the water because it will be a new
source of drinking water for your
furry friend. And if you have a dog
with a long tail, or a feline who likes
to play ball, be sure all your break-
able ornaments are up high so that
happy tails and friendly feet cannot
knock them down and break them.
This would create two problems,
one the loss of your favorite orna-
ment and two a potential source of
injury to your pet by either walking
on the object and cutting himself, or
by ingesting the pieces and causing
internal damage.
Holidays often mean lots of people
coming in and out of the house
for short or long visits. If your pet
is not used to a busy house, make


provisions for him to be able to get
away from the crowds. Some animals
do not appreciate too much attention
and will get irritable, this may cause
him to snap, bite or scratch. But if an
escape route is available, these types
of incidents can be avoided. Also, be
sure to instruct your guests about
how to take your pet outside (if he is
allowed outside) so that no one acci-
dentally lets the pet run away and you
have to spend your holiday searching
the neighborhood for your little furry
friend. I think we all know the poten-
tial dangers to a pet that gets outside
- cars, wildlife, poisons, etc.
Everyone makes extra special treats
for the holidays, which of course is
part of what makes them so special.
But do not feed your pet these special
treats (unless you bought dog or cat
specific treats for them), or let anyone
else feed them these people treats.
The rich foods we eat at the holidays
can cause vomiting, diarrhea or pan-
creatitis. These conditions can range
from mild to severe and may cause
you to make an emergency trip to
your veterinarian. And be sure to take
the trash outside as curious noses
will often find the trash can while you
are occupied elsewhere. Remember
that bones can splinter (all bones, not
just poultry) and cause damage and
should not be given to your pet. The

Bulldogs set sights on longer playoff run


'Second season


opens on the road against CCC Friday


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY I@. HARTLANDINE\WS'PAPERS.COM
Neither the Frostproof Bulldogs nor
the Auburndale Bloodhounds had
much on the line Friday night in their
regular season finale.
Both qualified for post-season play
with district wins Nov. 2, so it didn't
figure that their matchup would have
many fireworks. Auburndale is a Class
5A school. Frostproof is Class 3A.
Auburndale scored three times in the
first two quarters, including a bit of a
back breaker in the closing seconds of
the second quarter, and scored three
times in the final quarter to post a
47-15 win over Frostproof.
The good news is the Bulldogs
exited the game relatively healthy, and
with their eyes squarely trained west,
where they travel Friday night to face
Clearwater Central Catholic in the
opening round of the Class A playoffs.
It is Frostproof's second straight trip
to the post-season, and they are hoping
for a better run than last fall when they
got knocked out in the first round by
Berkeley Prep, another private Bay Area
school, 41-6.


Friday night's contest figures to be
a defensive battle, Frostproof Coach
Price Hlarris said.
"Great defense. That's what they
(CCC) have been winning on. They've
got a solid offense, but on defense
is really where they've been beating
everybody down."
The Marauders come in at 9-1,
their lone loss back in week one.
Quarterback Blake Gomez has only
tried 121 passes this year, but is
completing them at a 64 percent clip.
Dequan Walker is the featured back,
with over 800 yards rushing, but
remarkably, they have nine different
running backs who have gained at least
100 yards this season.
Defensively, CCC has pitched six
shutouts this season, and hasn't been
scored upon in its last three games.
"They play well as a team. They're
decent up front, they're not huge, but
they really get after it," Harris said.
"They've got two really good corners
that they play a lot of man coverage
with which allows them to blitz a lot, so
no one's been able to throw much on

them, or run much on them. I've been
told by quite a few coaches that I've
talked to that they're the best defensive
team they've seen."
Harris said his defensive unit will
need to match what the Marauders
throw at them.
"It's going to be a game where our
defense really needs to step up and
stop them," Harris added. "It's probably
going to turn into the team that scores
21 points will probably win. But we
have some weapons, and we feel like
we have a couple of things to attack
them on."
The team's have two common oppo-
nents, Lakeland Christian and Cardinal
Mooney. Each have wins over both.
Frostproof defeated Cardinal Mooney
33-19 and LCS, 33-29, while CCC
defeated Lakeland Christian 35-0 all
the way back on Sept. 7 and Cardinal
Mooney, 17-7.
Auburndale's ground attack was on
display early, as eight of its nine plays
on a 63-yard scoring drive on their first
possession of the night were running
calls. The only pass was an important
one, however, a 15-yard catch and run
by Artavis Pierce on a 3rd-and-8 play.
Charles Taylor finished the possession
with a 17-yard run off right tackle for a
7-0 Bloodhound lead with 5:34 remain-
ing in the first quarter.
But the Bulldogs came right back
with their own answer, a 10-play,
80-yard scoring march. The drive got
a major assist from the host Hounds,
who were flagged for a pass interfer-
ence call on a 3rd-and-12. On the very
next play, Kijana Gaines hauled in a
40-yard pass to the Auburndale 15.
Three plays later, after a 14-yard pass
to the hosts' one-yard line to Kijana


Gaines, quarterback Xavier Gaines took
it the final yard on a keeper. Lamar
Bobb kicked the extra point with 1:31
to tie the game at 7-all.
Despite their usual ground prowess,
Auburndale moved the ball mostly
through the air on its second scoring
drive of the night. This one was a nine-
play drive that covered 83 yards, and
only the first play and the last two were
running plays. Pass completions of 20
and 39 yards moved the Bloodhounds
to the Frostproof five, and two plays
later, Derwin James bullied his way
over the goal line from the two for a
14-7 Auburndale lead.
But the Bloodhounds were not
finished, taking a 21-7 lead to the
lockeroom, scoring with 30.7 seconds
to play before intermission. Jessie Britt
hauled in a 25-yard pass, out dueling
a couple of Frostproof defenders, for
the hosts third touchdown of the night,

their own 48 with 62 seconds left in the
second quarter.
The Bulldogs sliced into that ad-
vantage on their first possession of
the second half. Starting at their own
43, Frostproof was aided by three
Auburndale penalties, including a
pass interference flag, to pull within
21-15. The drive also featured a pair
of 10-yard passes to Daniel Knighten,
both on third down. After the pass
interference call, Xavier Gaines hit
Kaleel Gaines on a 20-yard touchdown
pass. Kaleel made a nice sliding catch
and kept in bounds at the same time to
put the six points on the board. James
again did the honors, carrying it in
from two yards out. He also had the
key play of the quick six-play, 52 yard


drive when he broke up the middle on
a 27-yard scamper.
But the Bulldogs defense, which has
been pretty stout all year, didn't have an
answer as Auburndale went back to the
ground on its ensuing possession and
upped the lead to 28-15 less than two
minutes later. They needed just six plays
to dive 56 yards, with James going in
from two yards out, after ripping off a 27-
yard scamper earlier in the possession.
Frostproof, which finishes the regular
season with a 6-4 mark, drove deep
into Auburndale territory late in the
third, but missed a field goal try, and
the host Hounds scored on a long pass
play and two short running plays in the
last 10 minutes for the final margin of
victory.

Stewart 'thrilled' at idea of interim appointment


Former schools

By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
John Stewart, former three-term
Polk School superintendent, said he is
"thrilled and honored to be considered"
for an interim position coming up much
sooner than anyone anticipated.
Sherrie Nickell, who had planned to
retire in June due to family health con-
cerns, this week moved her departure
date up to Nov. 16 which left the school
board about a week and a half to install
an interim superintendent.
Early in a school board work session
Nov. 7, actually called for another
purpose, Stewart's name came up as a
possible temporary replacement for the
retiring leader.


superintendent

The school
board on Tuesday
made the move
official by a
unanimous vote.
Wayne Blanton,
executive direc- .
tor of the Florida '.
School Boards
Association, told
the board that by
Florida statute "
they could not be John Stewart
without an acting
superintendent,
even for a short
time, adding further urgency to the
situation.
Contacted at home on Nov. 9, Stewart


not interested in

told Sun Coast Media that he would be
glad to fill in if selected for the position
a decision that was expected to
be made official yesterday at a school
board meeting.
Asked if he was interested in coming
back permanently, Stewart said, "No,
not at all. I think they need a younger
person for that." Stewart is 68, but said
he is OK with the fact that his retire-
ment keeps getting deferred. "God has
blessed me with good health, that I can
keep working," he said.
Stewart will be coming back into
familiar territory, and he said it would
be a "labor of love."
Stewart said his first order would be
working with Nickell during her last
three days, to be briefed on district


permanent post

priorities. "Then, of course, I would
meet with the board," he said.
Stewart was the district's last elected
superintendent, before they went to the
appointed model. Some highlights of his
tenure include bringing the International
Baccalaureate program to Polk County,
and helping establish the Lois Cowles
Harrison School for the Arts.
Also under his leadership, the county
went to a uniform policy, requiring
school uniforms for students kinder-
garten through eighth grade.
The board expressed high praise for
Stewart at the meeting Nov. 7, and retir-
ing board member Frank O'Reilly said
he his temperament is "always even,"
and he would help improve morale in
the district.

Lori Cunningham said she has
heard nothing but good things about
Stewart from people in Pinellas. The
only board member to hesitate was
Tim Harris, who was afraid personnel
changes would come with Stewart's
tenure as interim, and that with a ca-
pable, experienced person in place,
the search might drag on longer than
July 1; the current target date.
Sellers committed to bringing a


contract offer for Stewart to the next
board meeting, and told members
she would send it out to them ahead
of time so they could look it over.
In a letter to staff and the board,
Nickell said to better balance her
family's health needs and to provide
the level of loving support that she
wished to give, "I have now decided
to leave at the close of business on
Friday, Nov. 16, 2012."
She hopes one day to return to

southern Polk County.
That's because several hundred stock-
holders and citrus producers for Florida's
Natural Growers learned that the com-
pany's previous fiscal year was a record
breaker.
"Despite unprecedented cost increases
for energy, operations were successful in
managing costs through productivity in-
creases and we close the year experiencing
a record high market share, record gallons
sold, record dollars sold and record loyalty,"
said Chief Executive Officer Steve Caruso.
Overall, gross sales for 2012 were
$624.8 million, company officials indicated.
"In virtually every aspect, the financial
condition of Florida's Natural Growers
indicates not only an improvement from
recent years' already impressive results, but
in many cases represented new records
with a return of $1.90 for oranges and
grapefruit at $1.55 per pound solid," said
Florida's Natural Chief Financial Officer
Chip Hendry. "The company also gener-
ated a profit on non-member business
that significantly strengthens the Co-op's
balance sheet."
Hendry also noted that the company
had made more than $73 million in capital
investments in the past five years, but has
long term debt of only about $40 million,
the lowest in five years. Improvements
included the automation of the not-from-
concentrate juice blending system, a


premium pulp recovery system and high
speed packaging lines.
"There was much emphasis placed upon
improving operational efficiencies, reduc-
ing waste and costs. This has combined to
produce one of the highest gross profit per-
centages in history," he added. "Although
the amount of the fruit processed during
the 2012 season was far from a record, the
amount of member proceeds were at an
all time high. The 2012 season may well
be remembered for a number of records
broken, and it certainly is a testament to
the advantages of brand ownership."
He said that the decision 25 years ago
to create Florida's Natural brand may have
saved the firm that locally was known for
decades as Citrus World Inc.
"None of these financial results would
have been possible without the success
of the Florida's Natural brand," he added.
"In fact, and this is my opinion, there's a
very strong possibility that without the
vision of our members and our marketing
team and support of our financial partners
that we could have been one of the many
former citrus processors remembered only
in historical records if it were not for the
Florida's Natural brand."
Officials said about 37 cents of every
dollar in sales was returned to member
growers last year, a number that impressed
auditor ClayWorden of McGladery, one of
the nation's largest accounting firms.
"It was only two years ago, that figure
was 29 cents. That speaks to the efforts that
management has put in," he said. "The
history of this co-op has positioned it to
continue to pay good dividends."
One of the major developments of


the past year was the addition of a 14th
member, the Southern Gardens Grove
Corporation in Clewiston.
"Growing the member fruit supply is
necessary to support real opportunities to
increase market share," Caruso added.
Monday's meeting was a true celebra-
tion in more ways than one. In addition to
celebrating a quarter-century of Florida's
Natural brand, it also marked the final
stockholder meeting for the company's
Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Walt
Lincer, who has been with the co-op for
three decades and was there at the begin-
ning when Florida's Natural, originally
branded as "Fresh'N Natural", was created
from scratch.
Four years after its launch in 1987, the
company was forced to come up with a
new name because the Food and Drug ,
Administration said it could not use
"fresh" in its labeling because the juice was
pasteurized.
"The Florida's Natural Brand changed
this cooperative 25 years ago from a private
label packer to a consumer brand mar-
keter. Our successes for the past year in
distribution, market share, sales, consumer
loyalty are on all accounts as a result of the
Florida's Natural brand," Lincer said.
Market share has grown to just under 21
percent meaning it is making a serious bid
to reach that ofifs two biggest competitors,
Tropicana and Minute Maid. Two years
ago, at the same meeting, company officials
reported a market share of 18.1 percent
First formed in 1933, the growers'
cooperative was named Florida Citrus
Canners Cooperative, as its main func-
tion was canning grapefruit sections and


juice for its grower members. After the
development of frozen concentrated
juices in the 1940's, the cooperative
invested in the necessary infrastructure
and became one of the largest juice pro-
cessors in the state. In 1969, the Canners
Cooperative eventually changed its name
to Citrus World Inc. to better reflect its di-
verse product line. Today, the majority of
the Cooperative's sales are derived from
the Florida's Natural Brand squeezed
from 100 percent Florida oranges. The
cooperative now uses Florida's Natural
Growers as its name.
Florida's Natural Growers is comprised
of 14 grower organizations representing
almost 1,000 individual growers who own
nearly 60,000 acres of citrus in Florida.
Florida's Natural Growers operates its
processing plant in Lake Wales with a juice
packaging plant in Umatilla, Fla. The Lake
Wales facility employs 670 employees in
Lake Wales and 101 in Umatilla. That local
workforce number is down from recent
years, when as many as 900 employees
were part of the local operation.
Florida's Natural can extract more than
9 million pounds of fruit every 24 hours
in peak season. Brands produced in Lake
Wales include Florida's Natural, Florida's
Natural Growers Pride, Donald Duck, and
Bluebird.
"Your board and management staff have
accomplished a lot but the challenges that
lie ahead of us are also our greatest oppor-
tunities," said Board Chairman Dick Fort.
He was presiding over his sixth straight
board meeting, and while he will continue
to serve on the board, will be stepping
down as its chairman per the firm's bylaws.

Enchanted evening draws large crowd


By KATHY LEIGH BERKOWITZ
KLBERKOWITZ@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

It would seem that the tower and the
hill it sits on were made for moments
like these.
As more than 2,000 people sprawled
out on the ground at the foot of Bok
Tower, even nature afforded a scenic
backdrop, as the sunset gave way to an
indigo sky, framed by the gnarly trees
above their heads.
The event, Sunset and Symphony, has
become an annual Bok Tower Gardens
tradition.
Some brought picnics, fully arrayed
on tables of white linen, candlelight,
wine and cheese, while others brought
Chinese lanterns and hung them beside
a nearby tree.
And while a rustle of the occa-
sional picnic basket could be heard, the
robust, smooth music of the Orlando
Philharmonic Orchestra fully swelled


from the valley, rising, as it were, even
to the sky, where a solitary fixed wing
airplane flew overhead, perhaps oblivi-
ous to the serenity below.
People described it as "elegant," and
"beautiful," a "perfect evening."
The full program included a pre-
show featuring the Florida Southern
College Jazz Ensemble, and was later
followed by a Carillon concert by Geert
D'hollander of Belgium, Bok's new caril-
lonneur, as well as a piece from Austin
Hallock, tenor, the featured Orlando
Philharmonic soloist.
Dirk Meyer was the orchestra
conductor.
Awards were given for the various pic-
nic stars: Best Fall Theme went to Mary
Ellen Strange for Fall Harvest; Most
Original was given to the Mad Hatter's
Tea Party, Bob Young, Susanne Span and
Carole Morman; Most Elegant, Cowboy
Supper Club, David Barnes and Janice
Bargeron.

Nelson expects citrus greening fund to be approved


U.S. Senator makes prediction Monday during visit in Lake Wales


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson predicted
Monday that millions of dollars
earmarked to solve the problem of
citrus greening will likely be approved
now that the country's presidential
election is over.
Nelson was in Lake Wales Monday,
six days after being re-elected to
his third term as Senator last week,
speaking at the 79th annual stock-
holder's meeting for Citrus World
Inc., the parent company of Florida's
Natural which employs nearly 900
people in its local operation.
The money will come from a citrus
industry trust fund that would collect
$30 million a year for the next five
years, according to legislation that
has been approved by the Senate's
finance committee, but still has
not been voted on by the full U.S.
Senate. The money would come from
tariffs paid already by foreign citrus
importers which currently goes into
the general treasury. The plan would
funnel a portion of that money into a
fund dedicated to seeking solutions
to citrus problems like pests and
disease.
"This industry is threatened,"
Nelson said.
He said partisan politics were in
part to blame for the fact the pro-
posal had not yet been voted on, but
that he expected that to change once
lawmakers return to Washington this
week.


Nelson said one of his finance
committee colleagues who so far has
voted against the trust fund is John
Cornyn of Texas, who happened to
also be the Senate's GOP campaign
committee chairman this year.
Another was Arizona Sen. John Kyl,
also a Republican, despite the fact
that both states are citrus producers.
"You know what that was all about.
They did not want me to have a
successful piece of legislation right
before the election," Nelson said.
"Partisan politics was getting in the
way. The only way we're going to get
things together is to stop this silliness
of this excessive partisanship, of this
excessive ideological rigidity and to
start getting people to come together
to get things done."-
The measure did get one
Republican vote from finance com-
mittee member Olympia Snow of
Maine, long considered one of the
Senate's moderates.
Nelson predicted an improved
atmosphere in the U.S. Capitol soon,
and that a hoped for spirit of coop-
eration would benefit the citrus trust
fund's chances.
"The good news is that's going to
start (Tuesday) as we go back into ses-
sion. The fact is they don't have these
reasons to oppose it," Nelson added.
"Since the election is over, and if we
can cut through the partisan politics,
which I think we'll be able to now,
we'll be able to get this going. The
citrus trust fund is just one (partisan)
example, and it was an ugly example.

U.S. Senator Bill Nelson, right, was in Lake
Wales Monday to speak at the 79th annual
stockholder's meeting of Citrus World, Inc. at
Lake Wales Country Club. He is shown with
Florida's Natural CEO Steve Caruso.
At the end of the day, we're going to
get it done to supplement the
$11 million that is already flowing."
He urged Florida citrus leaders to
contact their counterparts in Texas
and Arizona to lobby their senators to
support the fund as well.
Two years ago, Nelson was able to
secure $2 million for greening re-
search, and a pledge for another
$9 million over the next five years. He
said he personally made a plea for the
funds to White House Chief of Staff.
"This was no fooling time," Nelson


recalled. "I said this is a way of life in
Florida. This is a part of our tradition.
This is how Florida grew. This is part
of us and it's going to kill us unless we
find a cure."
He predicted that Congress will be
able to cobble together a budget soon
as well.
"You will see that will come to-
gether pretty quickly now. It has to,"
Nelson said. "Partisan politics, mixed
up in a presidential election, is what
prevented it over the course of the
last year and a half. This should have
been done in August or July, 2011.
The body politic has not worked. I've
never seen it so polarized, so partisan
driven. You can't run this country that
way. You have to do what we've done
for two and a quarter centuries. At the
end of the day, people of good will
who respect the other fellow and the
other persons point of view, and work
out your differences. That's the best
tradition of American politics."
Nelson, who has been in public ser-
vice for four decades since first being
elected to the Florida House in 1972,
said that message was reinforced
to him when he was aboard a space
shuttle flight in 1986 for six days.
"To look back at Earth, I was
stunned by what struck me. I didn't
see political divisions. From that
perspective, the window of a space
craft, I didn't see religious divisions. I
didn't see ethnic divisions, I saw that
we were all in this together. If we just
remember that, we'd get a lot more
done."

Winter Haven hospital offers diabetes seminar


Winter Haven Hospital's Center
for Diabetes Education will offer
health screenings, lectures and other
demonstrations to teach Polk County
residents about diabetes which is the
seventh leading cause of death in the
United States.
The event is scheduled at the
Winter Haven Hospital Wellness
Center from 8 a.m.-noon Saturday,
Nov. 17. The Wellness Center is just


off the hospital's first-floor Grande
Lobby.
According to the American
Diabetes Association, 25.8 million
people 8.5 percent of the popula-
tion of the country have diabetes.
Of those, an estimated 7 million have
not been diagnosed. Many patients
first learn they have diabetes when
they are treated for one of its life-
threatening complications: heart


disease, stroke, kidney disease, blind-
ness and nerve disease. Diabetes
self-management education attended
early in the disease process has been
shown to help reduce the risk of
developing these complications.
Winter Haven Hospital's diabetes
self-management education program
has been awarded the prestigious
American Diabetes Association
Education Recognition Certificate.


The certificate means that the ADA
recognizes the Winter Haven Hospital
Center for Diabetes Education as
meeting the national standards for
diabetes education.
Participants can get blood screen-
ings during the event. Registration
for blood work is required and can
be completed by calling the Winter
Haven Hospital Health Connection at
863-291-6705.


Wholesome holiday appetizers


Appetizers have a reputation as
time-consuming to make, so we
tend to fall back on the same ge-
neric ones, such as potato or corn
chips with commercially-produced
dips made from chemicals we can't
pronounce.
When we opt instead to make
fabulously delicious and nutritious
party bites that are a breeze to make,
we will impress our guests. Holiday
hors d'oeuvres do not need to be un-
healthy, loaded with sugar, salt, and
drowning in fat honestly. Preparing
them does not mean slaving in the
kitchen and coming down with a
tennis elbow ...
For any dish you plan to make,
first read the recipe carefully and
prepare a list of ingredients you will
need to buy. This may seem obvious,
but you would be surprised how
many folks attempt to make a dish,
assuming they have all the compo-
nents only to discover, in the middle
of the process, that they are missing
an ingredient.
Before starting, read the recipe
again, assemble the equipment, and
measure out the ingredients. These
preparations save time and prevent
problems like cooking something too
long because you were busy chop-
ping ingredients.
If you are using a recipe for the
first time, try to have a cooking dress
rehearsal: make it first well before
the intended date particularly if
it is meant for a special event. This
will assure that when the occasion
arrives, you will make the new food
like a pro, without resorting to the
panic button. Bonus: you can enjoy
the treat yourself while "rehearsing"
for the performance day.
Some recipes or parts of them,
such as making fillings, washing veg-
gies, etc. can be made a day or more
in advance of an event. If you need
to use the same ingredient for more
than one recipe, nuts for example,
you can save time by measuring
out enough for those recipes, stor-
ing and labeling them in separate
containers.
Pinwheels are appetizers ideal for
busy people wishing to prepare party
food that is not your run-of-the-mill


nibbles. They are quick and fun to
make, infinitely versatile, and look
tempting and festive.
Party dips can be made from fresh,
inexpensive ingredients in minutes.
The avocado dip presented below is
one of many choices of incorporat-
ing good-for-you fat and other nutri-
tious ingredients in your holiday
cuisine.
Happy and healthy holidays.

VEGGIE PINWHEELS
(Makes 22 pinwheels)
2 whole grain 12 inch tortillas or
wraps
8 oz reduced fat cream cheese

14 pimento-stuffed olives, finely
chopped
1-1/2 tablespoons oregano
Black pepper

A few sprigs of parsley for garnish

Bring cream cheese to room tem-
perature. Measure out ingredients
into a small bowl. In a medium bowl,
thoroughly mix cream cheese with
garlic, black pepper, and oregano.
Add all other ingredients. On two
separate 14 x 14 inch pieces of
parchment paper place tortillas and
spread cream cheese mixture evenly
all over them. Carefully roll tortilla
tightly in one direction. Roll each
filled tortilla in parchment paper,
then twisting paper ends. Insert in
a plastic bag and tie to seal. Chill

Stooped posture causes require early intervention


DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND ROACH:
Help, help, help. I'm getting stooped,
I hate it, and I hope you can tell what
I can do to keep it from getting worse.
Will exercise help? S.M.
ANSWER: There are two common
reasons for a stooped posture, and both
of them need early evaluation.
The more common is osteoporosis.
Although the stoop is sometimes called a
"widow's hump" or a "dowager's hump,"
it can occur in men. It usually appears at
an older age than in women, since men
have, on average, a higher bone density
than women do and women have a rapid
loss of bone density after menopause.
Osteoporosis is the loss of calcium from
the bone, which weakens the bones and
makes them more susceptible to fracture.
Fractures in the bones of the neck tend to
make the neck protrude forward, causing
a characteristic stooped posture. This
abnormality of the spine, called kyphosis,
can happen in other parts of the spine as
well, and can cause severe loss of height,
and even an inability for the lungs to
expand properly.
There is effective treatment for osteopo-
rosis, and treatment can prevent fractures.
Once fractures have occurred, however, it
becomes very difficult to change the shape


-jl


Dr.
Donohue



Drs. Donohue
and Roach


of the spine, which is why I recommend
screening for osteoporosis before fractures
occur. If you have any kind of change in
your spine or neck shape and haven't been
examined for osteoporosis (usually by an
X-ray test called a DEXA), you should do so
right away.
The second cause of stooped pos-
ture, which also occurs in both men
and women, is spinal stenosis. Spinal
stenosis is a condition where the nerves
coming off the spinal cord are com-
pressed. It may be a result of arthritis,
bone disease or injury. Spinal stenosis
almost always is associated with pain,
numbness or weakness, usually of the
back and legs. Many people with spinal
stenosis find that they need to stop


and rest after walking a short while, but
report that if walking while pushing a
shopping cart, they can walk as far as
they want. The stooped-forward posture
relieves pressure on the nerves and
prevents the pain, numbness or weak-
ness associated with the condition. This
"shopping cart test" also helps distin-
guish spinal stenosis from similar leg
pain caused by poor blood circulation.
Treatment for spinal stenosis depends
on its underlying cause and severity,
and may include medication, physical
therapy or, in severe cases, surgery.
It is possible to have both spinal
stenosis and osteoporosis, so before
starting any exercises yourself, see your
internist or general doctor to diagnose
why you are becoming stooped.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND ROACH:
I was recently diagnosed with trigger
finger. What is the cause, and is it a form of
arthritis or carpal tunnel? Is hand exercise
beneficial, or is it better to let it rest? C.L.
ANSWER: Trigger finger is when the
tendon to the finger gets stuck in its
sheath. Tendons, which attach muscle
to bone, travel in the finger in a sheath,
which protects and lubricates the
tendon. Sometimes, the sheath can
become inflamed and the tendon sticks


there this leaves your finger in a bent
position, sometimes painfully.
It is not related to carpal tunnel or arthri-
tis. This is one instance where exercise does
not help; in fact, it helps to rest the hand.
Your doctor may have you wear a splint to
really rest the finger. The doctor (usually
an orthopedic surgeon) also may inject the
finger with a steroid anti-inflammatory,
though this may take several times to work.
Surgery for this is uncommon.

tant topic. The booklet on the prostate

Stress now, sistress later


It's not the stress you're feeling now
that's causing health problems; it's that
bad stretch you felt years ago.
At least that's the conclusion of
a Penn State study that found how
people handle contemporary stress
significantly determines whether they'll
pay a physical price for it later.
"Our research shows that how you
react to what happens in your life today
predicts your chronic health conditions
10 years in the future, independent of
your current health and your future
stress," said David Almeida, professor of
human development and family studies.
"For example, if you have a lot of
work to do today and you are really
grumpy because of it, then you are
more likely to suffer negative health
consequences 10 years from now than
someone who also has a lot of work to
do today, but doesn't let it bother her."
Almeida and colleagues surveyed
participants in a long-term national
study of health and well being called
MIDUS (Midlife in the United States
Study). For eight consecutive nights,
they asked 2,000 individuals what had
happened to them in the previous 24
hours how had they used their time,
their moods, their physical health,
productivity and any stressful events,
including being stuck in traffic or car-
ing for a sick child.
They also collected saliva samples


WELL NEWS
Scott LaFee



from the surveyed individuals at four
different times on four of those eight
days. From the saliva, they measured
levels of the stress hormone, cortisol,
then linked this information to MIDUS
data about participants' demograph-
ics, chronic health conditions, their
personalities and social networks.
The researchers did this in 1995 and
again in 2005.
They concluded that "Velcro" people
who dwelled upon daily stressors were
more likely to subsequently suffer ill
health --especially pain, such as that
related to arthritis, and cardiovascular
issues -- than "Teflon" people who
didn't sweat the small stuff and moved
on with their lives.

Body of knowledge
At birth, a human female possesses
between 1 and 2 million immature eggs
or follicles in her ovaries. Many will die
before maturation. At puberty, a young
girl typically has about 400,000 remain-
ing follicles. With each menstrual cycle,
1,000 or so will be lost, with only one
actually maturing into an ovum or egg.
At menopause, relatively few follicles

November is Hospice Month


Hospice is a special kind of care
provided for those at the end of
life, and Gov. Rick Scott declared
November as Florida Hospice Month.
November is an opportunity for
hospice providers statewide to raise
awareness about hospice to patients
and families who could benefit from
the many services available.
Some of these services include
pain management, physical therapy,
respite care, grief and bereavement
therapy for loved ones, among many
others. Hospice provides their servic-
es wherever the patient calls home,
and works to empower the patient's
family by providing the needed sup-
port services.
"An important message we try to
get out is that hospice cares about
life," said Paul Ledford, Executive
Director of Florida Hospice &
Palliative Care Association (FHPCA).
"In 2011, over 112,000 patients
experienced the care and comfort
provided by hospice providers
throughout Florida."
FHPCA has been representing
hospice in Florida for 30 years.

November is pet diabetes
awareness month
November is National Pet Diabetes
Month and BluePearl Veterinary
Partners encourages pet owners to
become more aware of the signs and
symptoms of diabetes.
Diabetes is a relatively common
disease in which the body doesn't use
glucose properly. If left untreated,
diabetes is life-threatening. It is man-
ageable and if detected early enough,


pets with diabetes can live a normal
life when treated and medicated
properly. In some cases with cats,
diabetes can actually be reversed.
Signs and symptoms of diabetes
that owners should be aware of in-
clude the increase in water consump-
tion, increase in urination, increase
in appetite, weight loss and cataracts
may be present if diabetes has been
existent for a longer period of time.
Certain steps can be taken to pre-
vent diabetes. For example, obesity is
a risk factor that can be controlled.
In cats, diabetes is similar to the
human version of diabetes and can
often be managed with a change of
diet recommended and supervised by
a veterinarian. In dogs, diabetes must
be managed with insulin.
"If you notice any of these symp-
toms, we highly recommend seeing
your family veterinarian as soon as
possible," said Dr. Neil Shaw, chief
medical officer of BluePearl.

Swygert takes
on expanded roles
Dr. J. Scott Swygert, a Watson
Clinic, LLP, will take on the ex-
panded role of Chief Quality Officer
and Chief Medical Information
Officer for Lakeland Regional Health
Systems, while continuing to oversee
his clinical duties.
"I am honored to help lead LRMC's
continuing effort to provide the
highest quality medical care to the
people of Central Florida," Swygert
said. "We will continue developing
our newly implemented electronic
health record to optimize physician


and staff workflow, identify at-risk
patients before they have an event,
and incorporate best practices in
both quality and efficiency of care."
As a hospitalist, Swygert is part of a
Lakeland Regional team of physicians
who treat patients from the time they
are admitted at Lakeland Regional
until they are discharged.
Since 2007, Swygert has served as
the Medical Director of Hospitalist
Services at Lakeland Regional, and in
2011 was appointed as the Chairman
of Medicine. He has also assumed
leadership roles on numerous com-
mittees, to include utilization review
and medical records. Swygert was


instrumental in Lakeland Regional's
comprehensive electronic health
record implementation leading,
training and communicating with
more than 400 physicians before,
during and after its go-live in June of
2012.
Swygert has been a Watson Clinic
hospitalist at Lakeland Regional since
1996. He completed his internship
and residencies at Johns Hopkins
Hospital in Baltimore. He gradu-
ated cum laude with his doctorate
in medicine from Emory University
School of Medicine and received his
undergraduate degree in chemistry
from the University of Florida.

Focusing on home

improvements

For all the focus we put on transactions buying
and selling the truth is that for most of your life as
a real estate consumer, you'll be a homeowner. And
because your home is so much more than just a trans-
actional asset, a widget to be traded and tweaked only
for financial reasons, it makes sense to spend some
portion of your time, energy and money making it re-
ally work for
you.

thousands
of dollars to make a major move: build on an addition,
gut and remodel the kitchen, turn the basement into
a media room extraordinaire. And many times, that
means we never do the project, or we only do it when
it's time to sell and move.
The fact is, there are numerous remodeling projects
that can crank up your enjoyment factor at home, for
the much more accessible sum of $10,000. Here is the
beginning of a list, found on the Trulia website by Tara
Nicholle-Nelson, of the top 10 things you can do for
$10K, if you're in your home and planning to stay put
for a while.
The First item is:
1. Crank up the curb appeal. We usually talk about
curb appeal in the context of sprucing your home up
to prep it for sale, but I say that it's also one of the
most cost-effective home improvement projects for

homeowners who are staying put in terms of life-im-
proving bang for the home improvement buck. There's
just something about loving the way your home looks
when you drive up to it day after day, or when you
have people over, that dramatically increases your
enjoyment of home.
Depending on which projects you'd like to do and
whether you're interested in doing any of the work
yourself, you can crank up your curb appeal for just
a few hundred dollars or a few thousand. Here are a
few vision-starting curb appeal-boosting projects to
consider:
Exterior paint or power wash

Paint or install a new front door
Paint or install new trims (shutters, eaves, etc.)
New exterior hardware (door kick plate, mailbox,
house numbers, etc.)
Exterior or landscape lighting
Front yard landscaping spruce-up or makeover
If you're considering making a modest investment
in a home you plan to own for a while, you're increas-
ingly in the norm. Studies show that over 50% of hom-
eowners are now focusing on smaller home improve-
ment projects that increase their enjoyment of their
homes even if they don't increase its value.
