Crowd ushers in season

Parade draws joyful onlookers from across the Ridge


By JAMES COULTER
NEWS CORRESPONDENT
The high school band marches
along Scenic Highway playing "Let it
Snow!"
Old-time jalopies and other an-
tique cars putt-putt down the road
and blare their horns.
Young martial artists march along
and pose in fighting stances.
A giant gift box contains a real
truck with a motorcycle beside it.
These were a few of the sights
and sounds during the 20th Annual
Frostproof Christmas Parade last
Saturday evening, which drew a
couple of thousand holiday revelers
to Scenic Highway for the annual
extravaganza.
Over 45 holiday floats, vehicles,
and other processions participated
in this year's parade, each decorated
with this year's theme of "A Family
Christmas."
Notable participants included
the Frostproof Middle-Senior High
Band, the Frostproof Bulldogs
football team, the local Girl Scouts
chapter, the Florida Forestry
Service, and local law enforcement
and rescue services.
Two prominent couples were
featured in the parade. The first
was the Frostpoof Middle-Senior
High's Homecoming King and Queen
Reggie Allen and Megan Maxwell.
This was Allen's first time in
the parade, but Maxwell had par-
ticipated many times before with

The star of the show, Santa Clause, as usual brought up the rear and delighted children of all
ages. More parade coverage on pages 15-17.


the Frostproof Cheerleaders, Girl
Scouts, 4H Club, and her church.
Of all the parades she had partici-
pated in, this one was her favorite.
"I'm excited about this one be-
cause I'm the Queen," she said.
The other prominent couple
in the parade was the Man and
Woman of the Year, the two highest
awards conferred by the Frostproof


Chamber of Commerce.

This year's titles were conferred to
Bob O'Hara of O'Hara's Restoration
and DeDe LeFils of Watson's
Pharmacy, both whom rode in a vin-
tage Rolls-Royce dressed in evening
wear.
SEASON15


Grinch


strikes city's


manger

By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Let's just say it was an unusual week
for the Polk County Sheriff's Office in
Frostproof, capped by the disappearance
of several figures from the city's manager
scene erected recently at the comer of B
Street and Scenic Highway.
City Manager T.R. Croley made a plea
during Monday night's city council meet-
ing that the items be returned to the city
hall parking lot if someone knows where
they might have ended up.
Police say they do not no exactly when
the items were stolen, and believe the
last time they were seen was during
Saturday night's Christmas parade. The
items were reported missing on Monday
morning.
Missing is Baby Jesus, which police
said was a plastic doll figure, and a ply-
wood donkey. Much of the manger scene
had been refurbished for the current
holiday season.
"This is the first year I've known of
anything to go missing," Croley noted.
Anyone with information related to
the theft who wants to be anonymous
and eligible for a cash reward can contact
Heartland Crimestoppers at 1-800-
226-TIPS, or go online to www.heart-
landcrimestoppers.com. Anonymity is
guaranteed.
LastWednesday, police were on the
scene of an unusual accident on U.S. 27
when a beer truck overturned, spilling
most of its contents. Fortunately, there
were no serious injuries reported in that
incident.


Local vet to mark Battle of Bulge 67th anniversary


By JAMES COULTER
NEWS CORRESPONDENT
About 67 years ago, following the
Normandy Invasion, Allied Forces
marched across Europe to combat the
Axis Powers.
Unbeknownst to them, the Germans
were plotting an offensive within the
Ardennes region to split the Allied
Forces, contain them, and forced them
to surrender.
On Dec. 16, 1944, blinded by their
own self-confidence, the Allies were

caught off-guard when the Germans
attacked.
With limited intelligence on enemy
plans, and the wintry elements against
them, the Allies were at a grave disad-
vantage; but yet they stood their ground
and held back the Germans over the
next month.
Under the command of Lt. Gen.
George S. Patton, Allied Forces
drove north and relieved the town of
Bastogne, where they fought off the
Germans, and with one push forward,
forced them back to the Siegfried Line,


turning the war back into ally favor, and
sealing the inevitable defeat of the Axis
Powers.
This counteroffensive became known
as the Battle of the Bulge, and with
89,000 casualties and 19,000 deaths,
was the biggest battle on the Western
Front in World War II.
Its 67th anniversary will be com-
memorated by the Polk County chapter
of the Veterans of the Battle of the
Bulge this Saturday, Dec. 8 at 11 a.m.
at the Cleveland Heights Golf Club in
Lakeland.


While most of these veterans fought
valiantly to combat enemy forces, one
brave soul held the sole duty of main-
taining the faith during these uncertain
times.
Gerhardt Gerke served as the chap-
lain of the Forward Medical Battalion of
the 9th Armored Division.
Born May 1, 1911, in South Dakota,
Gerke determined in high school to
follow his father's footsteps and join the
ministry.

Local electric customers

will get slight rate break


By JIM SAUNDERS
NEWS SERVICE FLORIDA
TALLAHASSEE Customers of
Progress Energy Florida, which ser-
vices the greater Frostproof area, will
see their monthly electric bills drop
in 2013, after state regulators last
week finalized critical costs related
to fuel and an idled Crystal River
nuclear plant.
Progress residential customers
who use 1,000 kilowatt hours of
electricity a month will see their
bills drop from the current $123.19
to $116.06, according to the Florida
Public Service Commission.
Florida utilities have been buoyed
by relatively low costs of natural gas
that fuels power plants. Such fuel
costs are passed through to custom-
ers in their monthly bills, offering
direct benefits when prices are low.
The Public Service Commission,
however, couldn't finalize Progress'
projected costs until it dealt with a
complicated issue stemming from
the Crystal River nuclear plant,
which has been shut down since
2009 when cracks were found in
a containment building wall. The
plant was expected to start gen-
erating electricity again in 2011,
but additional cracks were found,
creating still-unresolved questions
about whether the facility should be
repaired or closed.
A key part of the Crystal River
decision centers on how much
money Progress can recover from an
insurance policy on the plant. That


includes how much money Progress
will receive for what is known as
"replacement power" essentially
power that it has to buy elsewhere to
make up for the lost production at
Crystal River.
Progress projected that it would
receive $327.6 million from the
insurance policy in 2013 to go
toward replacement power costs. But
the Florida Industrial Power Users
Group, a business coalition that
frequently intervenes in utility issues
at the PSC, argued that the projec-
tion should be higher, which would
have reduced the amounts of money
Progress customers would have to
pay.
FIPUG contended that the cracks
at Crystal River should be consid-
ered two separate events for insur-
ance purposes, which could increase
the amount Progress would recover
from the insurer, Nuclear Electric
Insurance Ltd. But the PSC, with
little discussion Tuesday, agreed
with the utility's $327.6 million
projection.
In a written recommendation, PSC
staff members said the insurer had
only recognized one event at Crystal
River and had not made a determi-
nation about whether to consider
the 2011 discovery of cracks as a
second event.
Customers' monthly electric bills
are made up of a series of costs,
such as base rates, fuel charges and
environmental-project costs. Fuel
charges are the second-largest part
of bills and change every year.

Seventy-one years ago Friday, people around
Polk County, as was true throughout the nation,
were shocked and horrified when they learned
that the United States had been attacked by the
Japanese at Pearl Harbor.
The late Charlie Swain, a Bartow resident and
the father of long-time newspaper employee
Anita Swain, was a proud survivor of the Pearl
Harbor attack. His ship, the USS Vestal, was
attached by line to the ill-fated USS Arizona.
Swain's ship was hit two times in the same at-
tack that sank the Arizona.
Swain said he watched as a Japanese pilot
fired a torpedo his. The missile passed beneath
the Vestal and struck the USS Arizona, sinking it.
"The pilot circled around us. I could see his
teeth; he was smiling," Charlie said.
He and several of his shipmates, including the
captain, were thrown into the water by the blast.
The captain ordered the other men to swim to
shore, and then swam back to his ship.
Seventy-one years ago Friday, teenaged
machinist's mate Miles Carpenter was on the


Our Viewpoint
USS Phoenix, docked at the U.S. naval base at
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, when waves of Japanese
fighters and bombers attacked. Carpenter was
one of the lucky ones: The USS Phoenix was not
hit. The ship, a light cruiser, got under way in
about 15 minutes time, but was blocked from a
full escape to open water by the battleship USS
West Virginia, in flames and smoking. Still, it
survived.
Some 2,402 American service men and women
died as a result of the attack; 57 civilians were
killed. Another 1,282 on the base were wounded
on what President Roosevelt called a "date
which will live in infamy." That was true. It is
one of the most significant dates in this nation's
history.
As everyone should know, the attack on Pearl
Harbor led to America's entrance into World War
II. Before the Axis was beaten and the Japanese
surrendered on Sept. 2, 1945, some 16 million
men and women had joined the armed forces.


More than 400,000 lost their lives; nearly 700,000
were wounded.
The emotion, the anger and sense of collective
angst was probably not felt again until terrorists
attacked New York on Sept. 11, 2001.
Carpenter survived it all on that day in 1941.
He went on to meet wife-to-be Jeanne at a Navy
Mothers Hostess House while the Phoenix was
being reconditioned at the NavyYard there.
They were married soon after the war and
moved to Florida four decades ago. This week,
Carpenter stopped by one of our offices to pay
a visit. He is a little unsteady on his feet these
days, but still extremely proud to have served.
Swain is gone now but not forgotten. He never
forgot his public service and was always proud
that he was Pearl Harbor survivor.
Florida is home to many thousands of World
War II veterans, but their ranks are growing
thinner day by day.
All present and passed away deserve our
respect and thanks. Friday, and every Dec. 7, we
remember.


Letters to the editor


Who elected


our president?


Barack Obama was re-elected presi-
dent of the United States of America
because the majority of "voters' wanted
him to keep changing the 'future' of our
country.
I know the actual process is as fol-
lows: The ballots are counted and added
up and the candidate that has the ma-
jority of votes wins the Electoral College
votes assigned to each state, according
to their population. The political gurus
announce the winner by colors:


Republican is red and Democrat is
blue. Each state won by the Republican
candidate is marked red. If the
Democrat wins,that state is considered
blue. The independent votes count but
are diluted into those two colors. There
are not white, green, purple, black or
yellow states. Just red and blue.
That determines the Electoral College
votes that finally decide who occupies

'They had a lot of warnings


When he heard explosions outside his
home on the north rim of Pearl Harbor,
71 years ago this week, young Walter T.
Oka's first thought was: "The Army was
mad at the Navy."
He rushed outside to see what was
going on, and continued to believe the
attack on the Pacific Fleet moored at
Pearl Harbor was a training exercise
until he spotted "the meatballs" the
colloquial term for Japan's rising sun
insignia on the attacking planes.
Oka was 13-and-a-half years old, and
knew that in 1938, the Army Air Corps
had launched a mock surprise attack on
Pearl Harbor.
Today, at age 84 and as men-
tally sharp as the auditorium full of
Southeastern University students he ad-
dressed in mid-November, he chuckles
at his mistaking Japan's sneak attack for

an Army exercise, and his family's fool-
ishness in watching the attack outside
of their home instead of taking cover.

Beginning his lecture with a history
lesson, Oka said that toward the end of
1940, a decision was made to consoli-
date America's entire Pacific Fleet at
Pearl Harbor. The move was opposed by
Admiral James Richardson, commander


of the Pacific Fleet.
He took his concerns to President
Roosevelt, who responded by replac-
ing Richardson with Admiral husband
Kimmel, who also feared that Japan
would attack Pearl Harbor.
The Peruvian ambassador to Japan
warned his American colleagues that
he heard about plans for a sneak attack
on Pearl Harbor. His warnings were
ignored, as were Kimmel's concerns.
Minutes before the first wave of
Japanese planes attacked from the
northwest, a radar installation at the
naval base picked up 130 blips of
approaching aircraft, and that fact was
reported to a second lieutenant on duty
that Sunday morning.
He replied that an incoming flight of
American bombers was expected that
day, and said to ignore the blips.


"They had a lot of warnings," Oka
said. "Somehow they ignored them."

The first wave of the attack, which
began at 7:40 a.m. on Dec. 7, 1941, was
such a total surprise that the Americans
did not have a chance to put their
anti-aircraft guns into service, Oka said.
To the best of his knowledge, the only
Japanese planes lost in the initial attack
were those that ran out of fuel.
A second wave arrived an hour later,
coming from the northeast. This time,
defensive fire came from anti-aircraft
guns and machine guns. Two machine
gun rounds landed on the roof of Oka's
home.
"You just stood there, shocked, look-
ing at the whole thing," he recalled.
Oka compares watching the attack on

Both were chosen for their efforts
within their hometown.
"I do a lot because I feel like do-
ing a lot, and that's something you
do when you live in a small town,"
LeFeece said.
The parade climaxed with the
arrival of Santa Claus riding with
his eight tiny reindeer pulling his
sleigh.
His float was crammed with
hundreds upon hundreds of stuffed
animals, to the point where some
fell off the trailer as it made its way
down Scenic Highway.
Every last stuffed animal was
passed out to children along the
parade route with the help of
volunteers from the Frostproof
Middle-Senior High Interact Club.
For the past ten years, the
Frosproof Care Center has pro-
vided the Santa Claus float and
the stuffed animals, all which have
been donated throughout the year.
This year, the Care Center believes
it collected between 1,000 and
1,500 stuffed animals.
Portraying Old Saint Nick himself
was the Care Center's Joel Grenke,
who participated in the parade
before, though this was his first
time as Santa Claus.
"I've lived here for 33 years, and
it's always been a great ordeal,"
Grenke said. "I think it's an honor
to be offered to play such a good
role, someone that everyone wants
to see and wave at," he said.
The parade floats were judged
and awarded in three categories
this year: Best Theme, Best Overall,
and Mayor's Pick.
Best Theme was conferred to
the Frostproof Health Hut for its
float "Family Vacation to Hawaii,"
an exotic Christmas beach scene
with grandparents seated in beach
chairs in front of the Christmas
tree while their grandchildren
sculpted sand castles with actual
sand underneath a tree of Herbalife
containers.b

to win anything, but it sure was
wonderful to know that people did
recognize the hard work that we
put into the float," said Rosemary
Smith of the Health Hut.
The hardest part for them was
getting one of their wheelchair-
bound club members, Raymond
Odum, onto the float via chairlift.
Their gratitude is extended to one
member, Gerald Crumbley, for
providing the truck and trailer for
the float.
Best Overall went to Family Life
Church, whose float was divided
into three scenes: a family gathered
before a Christmas tree and fire-
place, a wedding procession and
banquet, and the heavenly throne
of Jesus Christ.
Pastor Kelly Galati, who humbly
played the role of Christ with his
wife as the bride, explained that
the float "represented the family
in relation to Christ and Christmas
where the bride represented the
church, and Jesus on his throne
representing the church in Jesus,
which celebrates the whole culmi-
nation of Christmas and why he
came."
"We're very honored," he said
of winning the award. "Our team
worked hard to make a positive
statement about the Christmas
season and why we celebrate it."
The float chosen as Mayor's
Pick was "Christmas at Grammy's
House" by Ferguson Enterprise.
The float featured a family
gathered before a fireplace and
Christmas tree reading "Twas The
Night Before Christmas" with the
self-titled giant storybook serv-
ing as the backdrop along with
"Grammy's House."
The entire float was built and
designed by Eric Martin, who
claimed the hardest part was com-
ing up with the design. The idea
was inspired by his family's annual
tradition of reading the classic
Christmas story "Twas The Night
Before Christmas."
"I remember growing up and my
parents reading me that book every
year for Christmas," Martin said.
"I'm 41, and they still read that
book to me for Christmas."

concussion." It was the USS Arizona,
sunk when its ammunition magazine
was struck.
"Battleship Row" was the main target
of the Japanese attack, even though the
World War I-era craft were considered
by many to be obsolete in the combat
environment of World War II, Oka said.
The attackers did not target nearby
submarines or fuel storage.


County tourism study: 'Things are good'


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS .COM

With Streamsong set to open the
first part of its $70 million Streamsong
resort near Fort Meade in the coming
weeks, a consultant painted a positive
picture Tuesday about the area's tourism
potential.
"Things are good."
Those were the first words Judy
Randall, president of Randall
Travel Marketing, told Polk County
Commissioners at the Tuesday, Dec.
4 regular meeting. She stood before
the board, presenting the Destination
Analysis Study for Polk County that had
been undertaken by the Central Florida
Visitors and Convention Bureau. Randall's
company had been selected because
in the words of Mark Jackson, who
introduced her, "They do, in my opinion,
the best tourism analysis in the county."
Jackson is the director of tourism and
sports.
The report Randall's firm had done,
first in 2003, with a follow-up in 2006 and
the 2012 update, determined that tourism
in Polk County was doing well and would
continue to improve.
"I'm happy to report, you're looking
great," said Randall. She reeled off several
examples, such as lodging, which stats
showed were on a par with state averages.
What her survey also revealed was

considered his followers (evidently one

50 percent. She further complimented
the county on how it has blended certain
aspects of its diverse history, nature and
culture.
"What I see you doing more is mixing
the authentic with the new," she said.
That included the citrus and cattle
industry as well as its numerous lakes, in
addition to certain attractions, particu-
larly Legoland and numerous sporting
events.
Regardless, Randall pointed out
areas the survey indicated needed
improvement.
The county, she said, needed to do a
better job promoting what she termed
a "sense of place." As an example, when
Randall Travel Marketing did its 2003
survey, one of the things that was a
personal disappointment to Randall was
how rundown certain parts of the county
looked. A former Winter Haven resident,
she pointed out how that community had
turned itself around. There still are areas
of the county where improvement -
especially visual needs doing, she said.
She pointed out three areas in par-
ticular: traffic, signage (also termed
wayfinding) and accommodations. It also
needed to refine its web site. Of those, she
focused most attention upon matters of
lodging. A number of accommodations
need upgrading, and locations need to be
spread throughout the county.
In the final analysis, though, Polk
County was headed in the right direction
concluded Randall.
"This looks like a very bright future,"
she said.

I personally do not believe that a 47
percent group voted for Obama as a
block!
I wasn't to know what percentage of
the 'legit' voters in those blue states
stayed home for one reason or another
and ignored the moral and patriotic
obligation to cash their vote. I do not
claim or believe all those absent voters
would cast their votes against Obama
but, I am convinced they are certainly
who re-elected him.

He led Zion Lutheran Quarter Church
in Missouri with his wife and two
daughters until the outbreak of the war.
"We had a great number of men
within the congregation who were in
the service," Gerke said. "So I decided I
should take my place beside them and
volunteer for the chaplaincy."
After attending chaplaincy school,
he was shipped to Europe where he
was stationed at Headquarters in Paris.
He was one of 11 chaplains
within his division who traveled across
France, Germany, and Luxemburg
conducting services for the troops.
"My driver and I covered many miles
running around," Gerke said. "And
we had one warning: don't make the
wrong turn, or else you'll end up with
the enemy troops."
Because of the hectic manner of the
battlefield, his biggest challenge was
making adjustments to situations that
arose. His military service would teach
him to be more flexible and less rigid.
"The big thing was to learn to adjust
to the situation that confronted you,"
Gerke said. "I may have been sort of
ridged before, but after, I had lost my
rigidness."
One adjustment he frequently made
was with music. He carried around an
organ, but had no organist to play it.
His division chaplain sergeant would
play, but other times, Gerke was forced
to improvise. Once he had an accor-
dion player provide the music.
Gerke also held services for civilians
and would mediate in civilian matters
and disputes. During his service, he
held several weddings, baptisms, and
one funeral.
Though he held one civilian funeral,
he never held one for an American
G.I., as most deaths were in the front,
and the funerals were held by the
chaplain within that division.

Traveling with the Forward Medical
Battalion, his division would imme-
diately receive the casualties from the
battlefield, to which he would minister.
One of the soldiers he tended to was
a Yankee pitcher whose pitching arm
had been injured and who requested
prayers for its healing.
Before the Battle of the Bulge,
the Allies remained unaware of the
Germans' plans, and though they
received several hints, they failed to
take them seriously.
"The end result was that there was a
lot of uncertainty," Gerke said. "Nobody
knew for sure what was happening. Our
troops all along the line were caught
unawares by the sudden advance of the
Germans."
The uncertainty of the battle and the
carnage from both it and the war shook
the faith of Gerke and his division. The
aftermath of Normandy was especially
troubling for him.
"The loss of life was tremendous,"
Gerke said. "I saw many of them,
soldiers, laid out. When you think of
Normandy, with the loss of 30,000,
life was cheap. Seemed to be no value
place on human life. There were so
many losses."
Gerke himself experienced per-
sonal losses, as one member of his own
congregation was killed and a seminary
classmate of his had been captured as a
prisoner of war.
Despite these circumstances, Gerke
solidified his faith through daily Bible
reading and study, and the faith of
his division through his services and
personal contact with them.
"I treated this like any other op-
portunity to share the gospel of Jesus
Christ and the gospel of forgivingness,
which was high on the list requested for
services," he said.
Gerke served from 1943 to the end
of the war, after which he served
throughout Europe in the First Infantry


Division, 25th Armored Division,
and finally arrived home in the 90th
Infantry Division. For his service, he
was conferred a bronze star.
"I often said that I wouldn't take a
million dollars for my service, but I
wouldn't give $25 for another," he said.
He attended Chicago University to
pursue his master's degree, which he
later obtained in seminary.
"Time after time, as I met chaplains,
and saw their signatures, they had de-
grees," he explained. "I had four years
of high school, two years junior college,
three years of seminary, plus summer
school, but not a degree."
He would continue his parish minis-
try for 45 years until retiring in 1991.
The following year, his wife suffered a
stroke. He became her primary care-
taker from then until her death in 1997,
one year after their 60th anniversary.
He later moved to Florida where
he has settled in Babson Park for the
remainder of his years.
As a lifetime chaplain and pastor,
Gerke credits his long life and the
accomplishments within it to his faith
in God.
"For the victory, for Normandy,
the Battle of the Bulge, and the final
Rhineland Campaign, I think God gets
all the glory," he said. "For sparing my
life through the campaigns, I praise the
Lord too."

Warner holds Brahma



Island fundraiser


By KATHY LEIGH BERKOWITZ
KLBERKOWITZ @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
This is the stuff that makes for sweet
collegiate memories.
A new program has been born at
Warner University: the Warner University
Ag Studies Program, and that is some-
thing that has college officials very
excited.
Saturday, Dec. 1, WU held a fundraiser
with Lightsey Cattle Co. entitled "Brahma
Island Family Day."
Now, anyone who wants to get a
Bachelor of Arts in Agricultural Studies
can head straight to Warner to pursue
that desire.
The Ag Degree Task Force consisted of
Steve Maxwell, Tony DiMare, Hill Griffin,
Keith Mixon and special consultants:
David Byrd and Sonia Tighe, who as-
sisted in the research and development
of the Ag Studies Program.
The welcome was given byWamer
University President, Dr. Greg Hall, and
the guest speaker was Adam Putnam.
Putnam is a fifth generation cattle
rancher and citrus grower from Bartow
and is Florida's Commissioner of
Agriculture. He oversees the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services and serves as a mem-
ber of the Cabinet. He spent 10 years in
the U.S. House of Representatives.
Cary Lightsey brought the challenge to
the community, and Marty Higginbotham
was the auctioneer for the live auction. A


barbecue lunch was catered by Southern
Gourmet of Plant City.
Events and activities included Island
Tours in land buggies and airboats,
children's games and activities. A replica
of the proposed Agriculture complex was
on display, and Architect Scott Crews
was available for questions regarding
the design. The WU contractor, Ed Locke
of Semco Construction, will begin the
building phase once all funds have
been raised. Music was provided by a
live band, the Back Porch Revival Band,
with Jim Robertson, Melanie Robertson,
John McClure, Ginger McClure, Matthew
Clotharp, James Dion, and Jim Rigel.
Items sold at the auction included a
Brahma Island Overnight package for
two days and one night guided hunting
trip, including two trophy Axis bucks,
meals and lodging; a Grape Hammock
Fish Camp Cabin for a 3 day, two-night
stay with cabin and airboat tour for four;
an original Brahma Island scene created
at the event by Rick Powers Painting;
from Max and Jayne Linton, a Duck Key
beach house, two story, five bedroom
home with pool, deep water dock and
pool table; from Steve and Bev Maxwell,
a two-story oceanfront Ponte Verde
Beach home, occupying 3,200 square
feet with four bedrooms (featuring two
master suites), three full baths and two
half baths; an Andy Thomal "Limon De
Francais, custom pear-shaped Citrine
pendant of 5.75 carats set in 14 K solid
gold mount with vintage diamond bale.

Jury listens to recordings in Lottery trial


By JOHN BARRY
TAMPA BAY TIMES

TAMPA Jurors continued to
wade through hours of recorded
conversations Tuesday between Dorice
"DeeDee" Moore and informer Greg
Smith.
During a January 2010 chat at
Denny's, the pair questioned how
much time she could get. Smith
guessed five to seven years, not life.
"You can't be caught in that situa-
tion," Smith said.
According to the recordings, if
Abraham Shakespeare were found
dead, they would blame a nonexistent
drug dealer named Ronald. The pair
bought a cellphone in the name of
Ronald Watkins. Moore was going to
use the "Ronald phone" to make calls
to herself, to make Ronald seem real.
Lawyers expect to play five hours of
calls between Dorice "DeeDee" Moore
and the informer in court today.
The trial, which was expected to last
until the end of the week,-may stretch
beyond that time frame, lawyers say.
Moore faces one count of first-degree
murder in the death of Shakespeare,
who won a $30 million lottery in 2006.
He took a $17 million payout.
Shakespeare's bullet-ridden body
was found buried on Moore's Plant City
property in January 2010.
On Monday jurors heard Moore wore
a surgical cap, a mask and latex gloves.
For hours, she typed on a new laptop in
a room at the Comfort Inn & Suites in
Lakeland rented for one night, accord-
ing to a sheriff's informer, whom she
made wear a mask and gloves, too.
It was a pretend letter. Moore hoped
Shakespeare's mother would believe it
was from her missing son, the informer
said. It bore no salutation, no "Dear
Mom," and no signature at the end, no


-/


- -.------- --c.,-------- I


"Your Loving Son."
"I like being missing," it said.
The letter was read Monday to
the jury in Moore's first-degree mur-
der trial. Prosecutors believe that
Shakespeare was already dead when
the letter was written in January 2010,
that Shakespeare lay buried in Plant
City with two bullet holes in his chest.
Moore had acquired Shakespeare's
million-dollar mansion in Lakeland
and the remnants of the $17 million
jackpot he'd won in 2006, they say.
The letter to Elizabeth Walker,
Shakespeare's mother, was read to the
jury by an old friend of Shakespeare
named Greg Smith, who testified that
he pretended to help Moore create a
myth that Shakespeare was still alive.
All the time he wore a recorder at the
behest of Polk County detectives.
The long, rambling note praised


Moore for being honest, so honest
she wouldn't help Shakespeare evade
child support payments. "Don't worry
about DeeDee," it said. If she got ar-
rested "the charges won't stick." It said
Shakespeare had too many people
after him for delinquent payments and
domestic violence to show his face in
Lakeland.
"I like my life too much to sit in jail,"
the letter said.
On the recording, Moore could be
heard explaining that she bought a new
laptop so the letter couldn't be traced
to her hard-drive. Smith offered to bury
it in the woods afterward.
Smith also repeatedly warned Moore
to edit herself out of the letter. "You're go-
ing too far," he told her in the recording.
"You mention yourself more than once.
You got too much mention of you."
Jurors endured interminable lulls


Dorice "DeeDee" Moore sits in court in
Tampa during her murder trial in the
2009 death of Lakeland Lotto winner
Abraham Shakespeare. She is charged
with first-degree murder in the 2009
shooting death of Shakespeare, who
won a $30 million lottery in 2006.

in the recording, while Moore typed.
Several appeared to struggle to stay
awake.
Smith fretted that his wife, who w'as
going through the police academy,
wouldn't believe why he was out so
late.
After finishing, Smith testified that
Moore drove him to Shakespeare's
mother's house that night. He said
he quickly slipped the letter into her
mailbox while Moore circled the block.
Smith and Moore got together a
couple of days later at a Denny's
restaurant in Plant City. The letter had
not seemed to throw detectives off
Moore's trail.
If she got arrested, she asked Smith,
did he think her bail would be more
than O.J. Simpson's?
Smith said not to worry. His uncle
was a bondsman.

be the first acronym-free zone in
Florida?
That's the wish of interim superin-
tendent John Stewart, who half-jokingly
made the request Monday at a work
session when people started talking in
"alphabet soup."
"Can Polk County be the first to be
acronym-free?" he asked the adminis-
trators and board members assembled
at the Jim Miles Center in Lakeland. His
query brought laughter from the group,
including Stewart, but he persisted.
"Seriously, people don't know what we
are talking about half the time."


A quick look at
the Nov. 13 school
board agendas il-
lustrates his point.
If you're a non-
school-related
reader, how many
of these acronyms
can you relate
to? IBC, FRSEB,
AFSCME, SAC,
NEOLA, VPKAI,
MIP PEA? (Keep
reading if you
want to know
what these mean.)

Granted, with education's multitude
of programs, rules and departments,
it would be cumbersome to spell out
every word. And journalists are guilty
of the same sin, even though they are
supposed to spell things out in the first


reference. For example, Polk County
Sheriff's Office, thereafter referred to as
PCSO.
But the field of education probably
takes the top prize.
Reportedly, Stewart has been allergic
to alphabet soup for quite a while.
The District Wellness program
manager Debbie Zimmerman
laughed when Stewart's comment was
mentioned in the course of a recent
conversation.
"Back in the '90s, when he was school
superintendent here, he had a contest
to see who in the school system could
interpret all the acronyms. He listed, if I
remember, more than 100."
There actually was a person who got
them all right and won the contest. It
was Ruth Yearwood, who for years as
administrative assistant dealt with the
truncated words on a daily basis.


Below are the full terms for the above
acronyms:
The Independent Benefits Council
(IBC), Florida Retired School Employee
Benefits Program (FRSEB), American
Federation of State County and
Municipal Employees (AFSCME),
School Advisory Council (SAC).
NEOLA may stand for NEOLA. On
their website, the organization calls
itself as NEOLA in every reference.
(They provide school districts with a
service for developing and updating
board bylaws and policies, administra-
tive guidelines and procedures, etc.)
VPKAI means Voluntary
Prekindergarten Assessment
Implementation and last but not least,
MIP means Master Inservice Plan and
PEA is the Polk Education Association
(teachers' union.)
OMG!


State school official calls degree idea a gimmick


THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA

Gov. Rick Scott's effort to get colleges to
offer $10,000 bachelor's degrees "is not a
serious policy" and will be "perceived as a
gimmick," the vice president of the state
Board of Education wrote in a letter to Scott.
"Respectfully, I think that you have been
provided with very poor advice on this por-
tion of you plan," Roberto Martinez wrote to
Scott, asking him to work with the board on
an alternative idea for making college more
affordable and to consider providing
more state help.


"... With the deep budget cuts over the last
five years, it is difficult to conceive cutting
the cost of instruction even further while
maintaining a quality education," Martinez
wrote.
"The cost of a Bachelor's degree at many
of our colleges cost the students on aver-
age approximately $12,000. Reducing this
further, to create a cheap four-year degree,
will undermine the quality and value of the
education, hurting our students' chances to
compete successfully in our 21st Century
economy."
Scott has challenged the state col-
leges formerly known as community


colleges but many of which now offer
four-year degrees to come up with
ways to offer a four-year bachelor's degree
for under $10,000. Polk State is one such
school, and is in the midst of a study to
see if offering classes at Frostproof City
Hall is feasible. Currently, the closest
offerings are at the JD Alexander Center
in Lake Wales.
Last wee, four state colleges Brevard
Community College, Northwest Florida State
College, South Florida State College, and
Chipola College said they will do so, and
now more than half of the 28 state colleges
have said they will at least consider the idea.


Polk State president Eileen Holden said
last week that the local school already
provides good educational value. A four-year
degree currently costs around $14,000 there,
school officials indicated.
"Over 90 percent of our graduates are
free of student loan debt. That says a lot
about the affordability of a degree at Polk
State and about the contribution we are
making to the local economy," Holden said
in responding last week "Those students
bring a degree to the workforce, and they do
so without being burdened by the massive
loan debts that so many other recent college
graduates carry."

Toll road plan could bring highway west of Frostproof


'Heartland


By MICHAEL VAN SICKLER
TAMPA BAY TIMES

TALLAHASSEE To make way for a
proposed network of sprawling toll roads
including one proposal that would
bring such a highway near Frostproof
Florida transportation officials are
considering reserving tracts of remote
timberlands, cattle ranches and phos-
phate mines from some of the state's
largest landowners.
According to a memo released last
week by the Florida Department of
'Tansportation, five companies that
own a combined 5 percent of the land in
the state support the concept of Future
Corridors, a series of massive toll roads
that would crisscross the state's rural
areas to spur economic growth.
"While the need for future roads may
be far off in the future," the memo states,
"reserving land now provides certainty
for planning and may be more cost
efficient than future condemnation or
acquisition."
Land acquisition can be a deal killer
for any road project, so the memo, while
brief and vague, could boost the pros-
pects of a project that until recently
had appeared dead. Hatched by former
Gov. Jeb Bush, Future Corridors was
shelved by former Gov. Charlie Crist, who
instead emphasized improving existing
infrastructure and urban areas. Gov. Rick
Scott, who like Bush killed a high-speed
rail plan linking urban centers upon tak-
ing office, revived the Corridors project
and views it as an economic engine for
rural counties that will create jobs.
One idea that has been floated in the
state capitol is a toll road dubbed the
"Heartland Parkway" which would run
from Interstate 4 to State Road 82 east
of Fort Myers, a length of over 140 miles,
going through Polk County.
"The corridor location would be
approximately centered between two
competing free roads through the heart-
land, U.S. 17 and U.S. 27. Interchange
access to the Heartland Parkway would
be provided at major crossing roads,"
according to a 2007 FDOT document,
which estimated the total construction
cost five years ago at $6.9 billion.
"Possible benefits of the Heartland
Parkway may include support for revital-
ization of an area of the state where the
traditional agricultural economy has suf-
fered in recent times from weather and
S crop disease related impacts," the DOT
report added. "Preliminary traffic studies
have indicated the corridor would pro-
vide some level of relief in future years to
congestion on the parallel U.S. 27 and,, to
a lesser extent, on U.S. 17."
One major project that ground was
just broken on last month is expected
to dramatically increase truck traffic
in southern Polk when it is completed.


I Parkway' is one

Officials have estimated that the CSX rail
transfer facility between Lake Wales and
Bartow on State Road 60 could generate
at least 1,000 truck trips a day above what
currently uses the four-lane highway.
"The Southwest Florida region has
a high rate of population and traffic
growth, but has few options for high-
speed, high-capacity travel in the region
today beyond 1-75 and U.S. 41. This
limited connectivity is one of the factors
which has limited the region's economic
development potential," wrote Dick
Kane, communications director for DOT,
last fall.
Under the plan, DOT, in conjunc-
tion with the Department of Economic
Opportunity, state Department of
Environmental Protection and the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, would study these corridors
so that they are preserved for the future.
"One of the purposes of a future cor-
ridors initiative is to identify where future
corridors may be needed over the next
50 years, so we can begin planning for
these corridors today," Kane wrote. "If
FDOT, local governments and partners
do not begin planning for these corridors
now, we will not have plans in place
to address these long-term statewide
mobility needs."
The Polk County Transportation
Planning Organization has endorsed a
new toll road in the Heartland corridor,
according to DOT.
Earlier this year, the DOT hired two
former St. Joe Co. executives who are
also staunch Scott supporters to conduct
an "outreach effort" to Florida's major-
landowners. Billy Buzzett and Chris Corr
were to conduct up to 20 interviews with
owners of land where the roads could go.
The pair conducted interviews with
just five landowners. Buzzett and Corr
cut the interviews short, turning in
invoices for $15,600 despite a contract
that allowed up to $106,000, said DOT
spokesman Dick Kane. Companies
interviewed are supportive of Future
Corridors, which could help with develop-
ment projects they are planning.
Foley Timber and Land Co. is a private
company based in Perry, about 50 miles
southeast ofTallahassee. It owns 562,000
acres in Florida, making it the state's larg-
est landowner. In Taylor County, it plans
to build 25,000 homes on 30,000 acres,
and commercial and industrial develop-
ment on another 14,500.
Plum Creek is a real estate trust based
in Seattle that owns 520,000 acres in
Florida. It wants to transform 500 acres
in Columbia County into a giant freight
rail "gateway" project.
Deseret Ranches is a Florida-based
land investment firm and cattle ranch
operation owned by the Mormon
Church. It has 290,000 acres in Central
Florida, including Hillsborough, Orange,

Osceola and Brevard counties. It is plan- s
ning a large-scale project of nearly 30,000
homes in Osceola County.
The Mosaic Co., which is based in
Plymouth, Minn., is the world's leading
producer of concentrated phosphate.
It owns 250,000 acres in Central Florida
and is planning its first development
project in southeastern Polk County on
16,000 acres once used for phosphate
mining. Called Streamsong Resort, it
would include a hotel with more than
200 rooms and two golf courses.
Representatives from four of the five
companies reached confirmed that they
support the concept of Future Corridors,
but would want more details before
endorsing it or selling off land. More
skeptical of the project are environmen-
tal groups that were not interviewed by
Corr or Buzzett.
Representatives from several groups -
met for three hours on Nov. 8 with DOT
officials to discuss Future Corridors.
Some, like Janet Bowman of the Nature
Conservancy, say they are open to the
project as long as existing transporta-
tion corridors like Interstates 75, 95 and ;. -
4 are maintained and expanded first.
"You don't want to determine that-
there will be a future corridor without 2
going through a careful assessment
of what can be done to existing corri-
dors," Bowman said. "How this fits into
enhancing our current corridors is a bit
unclear."

echnic becomes a reality


Business plan for new school expected in two months


By CASSIE JACOBY
CJACOBY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
"The animal is alive," said archi-
tect Frank Loreno about Florida
Polytechnic University. "It's extreme-
ly gratifying to know there's a real
desire for something excellent."
Loreno represented Santiago
Calatrava, the internationally known
modern architect and designer of
the $100 million Innovation, Science
and Technology building, at the first
general membership meeting of
Florida Poly Vision on Nov. 29.
Nearly 80 of the more than 100
members of the group who con-
tributed $500 to support the new
university were joined by politicians
and dignitaries. For many, it was the
first opportunity to see how much
progress has been made at the
530 acre site near Interstate 4 and
the Polk Parkway since construction
began last March.
And, eager to hear plans for
the future, the group met Florida
Polytechnic University Board of
Trustees Chairman Robert H. Gidel,
the 60-year-old managing part-
ner of Liberty Capital Advisors in
Windemere who has served on the
board of the University of Florida
Foundation since 2002.
"If you're going to do something
disruptive about how education is
delivered in the future and about
where you want the state to go,


you've got to go outside the lines
and that's what this is," said Gidel,
sharing his vision for the state's 12th
university.
"Disruptive is not a negative thing,
it's just doing things differently."
Although disruptive is an under-
statement regarding the fledgling
university's split from the University
of South Florida, Gidel is focused on
the future.
"Some people are not on our side,"
he commented about critics he
called doubters. "We've had a train
of events in the past that no longer
matters. We're here now and ready to
go."
In addition to appointing Gidel
on Aug. 1, trustees recently agreed
to accept an estimated $31 million
being transferred from USE Hiring
Jacksonville attorney Ava Parker as
the interim chief operating officer
was another important step forward.
Gidel, who vows to have a busi-
ness plan ready in 60 days, asked for
honest feedback from members and
promised to be transparent.
"I'm an open book. There aren't
going to be any secrets. It's about
getting this right."
After commenting on plans for
where students will eat and sleep,
Gidel addressed opportunities for
private corporate funding that
Gov. Rick Scott wants as well as
public funding.
Accreditation, which will not be


considered until the first class gradu-
ates in 2015-16, makes attracting
students more challenging.
"Look, we're in the state university
system. There's no way they're going
to have this sitting here unaccred-
ited. We will get accreditation," Gidel
stated, adding that the first class will
receive accreditation retroactively.
"Florida has to take an aggressive
step to change the economic diversi-
fication, how we think about delivery
of education and make sure our
kids are properly placed into a new
economy that has competition you
can only imagine."
JD Alexander, the former senator
from Lake Wales who led the drive
for the new university, smiled with
pride watching as the "baby" he
helped deliver is born.
"We're not quite there yet, but
under Chairman Gidel and now Ava
Parker's leadership, I think the baby
will be healthy and growing quickly,"
Alexander commented. "This is a
critical, strategic institution to help
create future opportunities for our
region and state. It was worth fight-
ing for and I make no apologies."
Other supporters agreed with Gidel
that the university will transform the
future of the county.
"The kind of impact this will have
over the next 30 years will be mind
boggling," stated Ingram Leedy,
president and CEO of Elephant
Outlook. Leedy is part of the team


that will make sure the university is
connected to the most advanced fi-
ber optic networks in the Southeast.
"This university is what we need to
attract the types of businesses, high
tech wages and things that we want
in our county and our region. Not
only is this good for Polk, it's a good
thing for Florida and the country."
Two million new jobs are ex-
pected to be created in the Science,
Technology, Engineering and
Mathematics (STEM) fields.
"This takes the ceiling off the po-
tential," said John Small, Polk County
School District's senior director of
workforce education.
"We have 96,000 students in our
county with about 7,000 in career
academies who have to leave our
community to go to college. This is
an opportunity to keep our best and
brightest right here."
Along with designs for an outdoor
garden terrace, the 100,000 square-
foot building will house classrooms,
laboratories, community spaces,
administration offices and a large
amphitheater.
Calatrava is well known for his
designs of transportation centers,
bridges and cultural institutions. He's
also designing a futuristic train sta-
tion at the demolished World Trade
Center in New York City.

Fleas are painful, itchy and disturbing


The flea is a constant contender for
the most common problem addressed
at the veterinary hospital.
The majority of the fleas found on
the dog and cat are Ctenocephalides
felis ... the cat flea. These fleas move
rapidly and jump readily. The bites are
painful and itchy and are disturbing
to the host animal. Fleas bite to feed...
on blood. The adult female flea needs


a blood meal in order to begin laying
eggs. One flea can deposit as many as
50 eggs per day ... most of which end
up in the environment around the dog
or cat.
In two to seven days the eggs hatch
into larvae about four millimeters
long (about Vs inch). These resemble
fly maggots and will "metamorph"
into pupae in another two to seven


days. The larvae typically feed on the
excrement (flea dirt) that falls of off
the animal into the environment. The
pupae can hatch into adult (hungry!)
fleas in less than a week but they can
remain dormant for up to six months.
Stimulus to hatch comes from motion
or vibration in the environment. It is
easy to see that if unchallenged, a few
fleas can become thousands in a short
period of time. Each adult flea can feed
multiple time daily with skin irritation
common in infested animals.
Veterinarians will be presented with
dogs and cats that are weak and ane-
mic due to blood loss from a heavy flea
infestation. Additionally, allergy to fleas
can result in severe skin lesions with
infection, sores, and bleeding in both

the dog and cat. While most dermatitis
from fleas is related to the amount
of infestation, an allergic animal can
break out with severe skin issues from
only one flea bite.
Fleas can transmit disease as well.
Feline infectious anemia is due to
a bacteria transmitted by flea bites.
The most common tapeworm of the
dog and cat (Dipylidium caninum) is
transmitted through the ingestion of
fleas that are infected with the larva of
the tapeworm.
The other flea seen on dogs and
cats is the sticktight flea of poultry
(Echidnophaga gallinacea). This flea
imbeds its mouth parts into the skin
and continually sucks blood. These
fleas are often found on the ear
margins.
Flea control has evolved into a mega-
industry. There are multiple products
on the market for flea control. Caution
on the use of some dog products on the
cat ... some are extremely dangerous to
the cat.
Some of the products have beenin
use for some time and are less effective;

New Chief Operating Officer



at Heart of Florida RMC


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT

Who would think an electrical engi-
neer would wind up virtually running
a hospital? The people at Health
Management Associates, that's who.
HMA, the operators of the Heart of
Florida Regional Medical Center in
Haines City, recently named an electrical
engineer with a masters degree in busi-
ness administration as their second in
command at the northeast Polk facility.
Tom Patrias, a 37-year-old Tulane
graduate who later obtained his
masters degree at the University of
Southern California, took over the
day-to-day operations of most of the
hospital this past summer and now is
in charge of everything from recruiting
new doctors to keeping the 193-bed
facility sanitary.
Patrias spent several years after
graduating from the New Orleans
university putting his engineering
degree to use in the disparate fields
of aggregate mining in California and
the automotive industry before his
move into hospital and health care
management.
"I was doing engineering work
and, after I got my master's in 2006, I
thought I would head to Wall Street,"


he said. "Then my wife Angela, who
is a nurse, suggested I look at health
care, so I applied to HMA and the rest
is history."
He kicked off his HMA career as
associate administrator at the 150-bed
East Georgia Regional Medical Center
in Statesboro, and then moved to one
of HMA's 20 Florida hospitals, St. Cloud
Regional Medical Center ,where he
took over the Chief Operating Officer's
post in 2010.
"When the opening became available
here I jumped at it." he said. "It's a big-
ger hospital and there's lots of growth
potential here."
Patrias said the major growth
planned at HOF includes expansion of
the cardiology services and the addi-
tion of facilities for comprehensive
medical rehabilitation on site.
"We're going to raise our level of
cardiac care to include open heart
surgery by 2014, and will have desig-
nated operating rooms for that," he
said, adding that other cardiac services
already are in place.
He explained that the rehab facilities
will be available to post surgery patients
who undergo major joint surgery, or
stroke patients, among others.
"Right now, we have to send those
patients off site to a rehab facility, which


sometimes creates a hardship on their
families," he said. "With the facilities
onsite, we can provide services for a
14-day stay which will help many of
them well on their way to recovery."
That will take a designated portion of
the existing facility and will require
modifications to some patient rooms,
the addition or refurbishing of an activi-
ties room and an area where patients
can reinforce their daily living skills.
Patrias also said he hopes to help the
hospital grow in other service areas,
like pediatrics.
"We're already planning to expand
pediatrics from 10 to 14 beds," he said.
Patrias said the hospital presently
has some 200 doctors with privileges
and another 750 employees including
the nursing staff.
"I don't manage the nursing staff,
but the rest of the staff, including the
laboratory, pharmacy, respiratory
therapy, cardiology, radiology, facilities
management, clinical engineering,
volunteer services, food services, and
physician recruiting all fall under me."
he said; the hospital is the largest
employer in Northeast Polk County,
according to reports.
Patrias says he's finally got his feet on
the ground.
"The hospital had operated without a

COO for several months before I came
on board, so I've been playing catch
up for the last few months. I'm finally
up to speed and can get out into the
community more," said Patrias. "I look
forward to that."


Employees donate food for Thanksgiving


Lake Wales Medical Center em-
ployees. donated 440 pounds of food
for underprivileged families for
Thanksgiving.
As part of the hospital's annual
Thanksgiving food drive, hospital
departments competed in a food
basket contest. Each department put
together a themed "Harvest Feast"
basket. Baskets were judged on con-
tents, presentation and creativity.
This year's winner was the entry
from Pharmacy/Quality. Their
creative display of food in a turkey
shaped box made of fall leaves, won
over the audience.
"Our Thanksgiving food drive is a
great way for us to give back to our
community," said Scott Smith, the
hospital's CEO, "We are proud to
be part of a community that always
looks for ways to serve those who
may have an immediate need."
All food collections were donated
were distributed in the community.

Pope Medical
Plaza makes debut
Pope Medical Plaza has opened
and the center houses three tenants
whose individual practices will meet
,a range of medical needs.
Although the practices are sepa-
rate entities, the public will benefit


from the convenience of being able
to find them all under one roof, the
hospital said. It is at 550 Pope Ave.
NW, Winter Haven.
The practices in the plaza include:
Pediatric Partners. Their skilled
and compassionate doctors and staff
provide pediatric care for children
from infancy through adolescence.
Owl Now Urgent Care. Open Dec. 1,
it is Polk County's only adult and
pediatric urgent care practice that
provides emergency medical care
seven days per week.
Trinity Medical Group, which
opened Dec. 3. Trinity also has
offices in Lakeland and Bartow. The
practice provides primary care for
the entire family.
The building also houses a
Florida Department of Children and
Families Access Center.
Construction on Pope Medical
Plaza began in April.

The women were given these

Morales, whose positive attitude
and dedication to her work make her
"the backbone of nursing adminis-
tration," the hospital said.


Champino, is always dependable
in the Cath Lab, often working late,
and is also a CPR instructor, the
hospital said.
Bradley, who chooses to stay out
of the spotlight and, through quiet
hard work, keeps everything in her
department running smoothly.

Anorexia mostly an illness of young women


DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: Please do a column on an-
orexia. My 19-year-old granddaugh-
ter, who had plans of becoming a
model, is now hospitalized because
of it. She is nothing more than skin
and bones. I believe she was about
to die. This bright girl, even when
she was skinnier than a rail, believed
she was too fat. Is there hope for her?
- A.N.
ANSWER: Anorexia nervosa is an
illness that mostly strikes adolescent
girls or women in their early-adult
years. When they look into a mirror,
they don't see an emaciated body;
they see a grossly overweight body.
Their perception of their own body is
unbelievably distorted. Anorexia is a
mental illness and must be treated.
Anorexia also is a physical illness,
an illness akin to starvation. It brings
with it a host of body problems.
Anorexic young women may feel
dizzy and tired all the time. That's to
be expected, as they have no energy
stores in their bodies. Menstrual
periods often stop. Frequently, the
young woman is severely depressed.
I take it your daughter and her
husband arranged for the girl's hos-
pitalization. That was a life-saving
decision. She will get the nutritional
support she needs to function. Her
doctor most likely will begin treat-
ment with cognitive behavior
therapy, therapy that roots out from
the mind the false impressions your
granddaughter has about her body
and replaces them with perceptions
that reflect reality. She might take
medicine for depression, which is
common in people with anorexia.
Yes, there definitely is great hope for
her.


TO YOUR
GOOD
HEALTH


Dr. Paul
Donohue


I have addressed this topic as
though it were limited to young girls.
It can happen to women older than
what I described. And it can happen
to males, too. For every male who
has anorexia, 10 females have it.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: I am an 87-year-old woman,
very active and in good health. I still
maintain my own home, mow my
lawn and bowl three times a week.
My problem is'damaged nerves
in my feet. They keep me awake at
night.
My doctor prescribed amitripty-
line. It's addicting. I do not want to
be an addict. Is there anything I can
do to ease the burning of my feet?
- E.D.
ANSWER: Did your doctor say that
you had neuropathy? Neuropathic
pain does come from damaged
nerves, and the damage can take
many forms.
Amitriptyline isn't considered an
addicting drug. It doesn't affect your
thinking or your perception. Its main
use is for depression. Many depressed
people have used it for years and
years, and have not developed an
addiction to it.

Doctors discovered that amitripty-
line controls the pain of neuropathy
in many cases. You ought to give it a
try. For treating neuropathy, a lower-
than-usual dose is used, and it's
most often given at night. It will help
you get to sleep. Another medicine
used for neuropathic pain control
is Cymbalta. It, too, belongs to the
family of antidepressants.
Seizure-control medicines like
Neurontin and Lyrica also are pain-
control medicines. They are not
addicting. It might seem strange that
drugs can successfully treat unre-
lated illnesses, but there are many
examples of drugs used for two or
more unrelated conditions.
Perhaps you have heard of lido-
caine, the medicine used to deaden
sensations when a tooth is drilled
or an incision of the skin is made.
Lidocaine comes in patches that can
be applied to the skin over the pain-
ful area. That's another possibility
you have for relief of neuropathy.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: I am a female in my mid-
70s. Three years ago, I had my


gallbladder removed. My eating
habits have not changed, but I have
gained 22 pounds. I read that gall-
bladder removal affects the digestive
system. If I'm not digesting food,
where does it go, and why have I
gained weight? M.K.
ANSWER: The liver makes bile.
Bile is stored in the gallbladder. It
aids the digestion of fats. When the
gallbladder receives a signal that fat
is entering the digestive tract, the
gallbladder shoots bile into the tract.
Without a gallbladder, bile trickles
into the digestive tract on a more or
less constant basis, and fat still is
digested.
Drs. Donohue and Roach regret that
they are unable to answer individual
letters, but will incorporate them
in the column whenever possible.

Things to do with $1OK if you plan to stay in your home


Get rid of a wall. You might be a homeowner now,
but hearken back to your days as a house hunter. You
might remember seeing homes and wishing for what
is easily the #1 remodel fantasy of homeowners to
be: knocking down a wall. In my experience the wall
home buyers-cum-owners love to hate the most is the
one between kitchen and dining room, far and away.
Opening a kitchen and dining room into one larger,
brighter
space holds Joni Gerard
particular
appeal
for those .
who enjoy
gathering 5
family and
friends to Legacy Real Estate, Inc.
entertain
at their
homes, without isolating the cook/host. The next
most common wall people crave to eliminate is a wall
between two small bedrooms.
Now, agents and appraisers will tell you that turning
two small bedrooms into one poses the potential
to decrease the resale value of a home and that's
true. But if you're not planning to sell anytime soon,
it might be worthwhile doing it anyway, especially
if it renders two barely usable rooms into one user-
friendly space. And in fact, this wall is often relatively
inexpensive to remove and to replace, if you decide
to do so.
In fact, removing walls, even structural walls, is
highly feasible and much less expensive than many
home owners assume. (If a load-bearing wall is
removed, the structural component can often be
preserved and finished, by simple leaving a beam
at the ceiling.) What can jack the price up is the
relocation of plumbing or wiring contained in the wall
being removed. Reconnecting interruptions in flooring

and adding in things like an island or the other
remodeling line items that can go along with opening
a kitchen up (e.g., adding an island, new cabinets and
counters, etc.) can also add up. Check with a reputable
local contractor to consult on how such a project can
be planned and executed efficiently.
Swap out the old windows for dual-paned. This
is one of those $10K-ish projects that actually can
pay for itself over time. Switching out your old single
paned windows for new dual-paned ones might
make your home look better, but it will definitely
make your home operate more efficiently and
more comfortably. Dual-paned windows minimize
heat-loss in the winter and keep the cool air in, in
the summer, so you're not trying to heat up and cool
down the whole outdoors through the leaks in your
windows. They're also a must if you have street noise
or other noise challenges around your home; the extra
insulation traps noise before it can get to you, inside

your home.
As with everything, costs vary by location and
by the quality of window you choose, but you can
use $200-300/window, installed, as a rough rule
of thumb. Some older homes can require wood
repair of rotted out window frames, in the course
of switching to dual-paned, which can increase
the project cost significantly. Also, many cities
and states offer rebates for installing dual paned
windows (and making other energy-efficient
upgrades, by the by), which can dramatically defray
the costs of this particular remodeling project.
If you're considering making a modest investment
in a home you plan to own for a while, you're
increasingly in the norm. Studies show that over 50%
of homeowners are now focusing on smaller home
improvement projects that increase their enjoyment
of their homes even if they don't increase its value.
