Rally for missing manger figures


Officials still hoping for return after theft leads turn cold


By LANE DeGREGORY
TAMPA BAY TIMES
Saturday night, Dec. 1, while the high
school band was marching and Santa
was waving from a flatbed and his elves
were handing out stuffed animals,
someone snuck into the town's nativity
scene and stole baby Jesus.
A public works employee, walk-
ing back to his car from the parade,


noticed the empty manger and called
his boss.
"We'd like to think it was some kid
walking by who picked up the doll,
maybe their parents didn't even no-
tice," said public works director James
Keene. "But it couldn't be just that
because of the donkey."
That would be the "4-foot tall by
6-foot wide realistically painted ply-
wood donkey," as recorded in the Polk


County Sheriff's Office report.
More than 1,000 people lined the
parade route that night, which followed
Scenic Highway U.S. 27, right past the
spotlit creche. But no witnesses came
forward. The thief left no ransom note
or clues.
The Sheriff's Office asked the public
for information that might help catch
the criminal. Crime stoppers offered a
$1,000 reward.


Last Thursday, detectives got two
anonymous tips and set out to track
them down.
And City Council member Diana
Biehl found her daughter's old doll and
slipped off its pink dress.
The Department of Justice doesn't
keep statistics about Nativity-
nappings. But in the last two decades,

'Financial Fitness' really helps during the holidays


Classes are one of Care Center's most important outreach programs


By JAMES COULTER
CORRESPONDENT
They say a penny saved is a penny
earned, and for 6-year-old Jessica
Martin, she managed to save her
pennies all 2,150 of them!


Ever since she and her mother,
Hailey Martin, 25, attended the
Financial Fitness Program last
spring, Jessica has been collecting
her spare change in a piggy bank she
made in a group activity with her
class.


Within six months, she collected
$21.50 in pennies. With extra money
from her mother, her end total was
$25.
And when given the choice to buy
a toy or open a savings account, she
chose to open the savings account


where she keeps her remaining
savings.
"She collects what she can, and at
the end of the month, we roll it all
up and add it to her account," her

We're happy to report that Ray Odom is not

incorrectly inferred. While true that he has had two
knee replacements, he is otherwise doing well, he
happily told us last week. We regret for the error.

VIEWPOINT



At last, hope for statewide texting ban


Could next year be the year Florida finally bans
texting while driving?
Could it be the year utterly sensible tax-ban
legislation makes it through both the House and
the Senate?
Could it be that Gov. Rick Scott actually signs it
into law?
And that Florida's roads are a little safer?
Signs are pointing to a "yes."
Rep. Doug Holder, is picking up the House side
of a bill offered by Sen. Nancy Detert, for the past
two years. It is a simple, straightforward bill that
states:
"A person may not operate a motor vehicle
while manually typing or entering multiple let-
ters, numbers, symbols or other characters into a
wireless communications device or while sending
or reading data in such a device for the purpose of
non-voice interpersonal communication, includ-
ing, but not limited to communication methods
known as texting, mailing and instant messaging."
Got that? In other words, no typing on a cell-
phone, iPhone, smart phone, iPad, whatever, while
you're behind the wheel of a car.


Our Viewpoint
Sound harsh? Hardly.
The fact is the bill would make texting a second-
ary offense, meaning police would need another,
primary reason to pull someone over before giving
them a ticket for texting. A first-time offender
would be fined $30 for a non-moving violation; a
second offense within five years would cost $60.
No points on the license. And there are even excep-
tions for GPS devices, for emergency workers and
for anyone simply reading cell phone messages. In
short, the law bans the action of typing only.
Simple enough?
You'd think, especially considering an AAA study
found 95 percent of American motorists thought
texting apparently other people's texting -
threatened their personal safety. Thirty-nine states
already ban texting for all drivers; another five
impose a ban on "novice" drivers.
A slam dunk? Not so fast.
Strange things happen in the State House. Two
years ago, Detert's bill passed the Senate 34-4. It


moved to the House and disappeared. This past
year, it suffered a similar fate. The bill won 20-1 ap-
proval in the Senate Budget Committee. But, again,
it was doomed by problems on the House side.
Rep. Ellyn Bogdanoff, a powerful committee
chairman, was dead-set against it. House Speaker
Dean Cannon didn't like it either: At one point, he
told the Tampa Bay Times, "I've got personal liber-
ties concerns."
So RIP texting bill.
The good news is those two House members are
gone. Longtime legislator Detert should have more
clout. And Holder's standing has increased in the
House; he is reportedly tight with new Speaker Will
Weatherford.
So maybe this time, it may get done. We hope so.
We'll skip the statistics that demonstrate just how
dangerous texting-while-driving can be. We won't
harp on the fact that younger people are growing
up with an all-text-all-the-time mindset. A state
driving-while-texting ban may not stop the behav-
ior, but it will discourage it.
Texting while drivingis distracted driving. It is
dangerous. Let's get this law on the books.


There goes a


perfectly good world


At first, I was going to write another
ponderous tome on government and
trying to keep it responsive to the
interests of the electorate.
It's a dark and lonely job, as they say,
but somebody's got to do it.
-And then it occurred to me that
today's date is 12/12/12. Trivia like that
catches my eye, particularly since 12/12
is my friend Mary's birthday, making it
easier to remember than random dates
like July 4 or Oct. 31.
It will be another century before
12/12/12 rolls around again on the
odometer, and by then I may have quit
writing this column, or FSU may have
beaten Florida, or something.
Then again, if the Mayans got it right,
we might actually be wasting our time
with Black Friday/Cyber Saturday/
More-of-the-Same Monday and all
those other pre-Christmas celebrations
this year.
It has kind of gotten crowded off the
front page by really important news
like Lindsey Lohan's latest arrest, the
hiring of USF's new football coach,
and whether Brad and Angelina will
heed their kids' pleas to get married by
Christmas, but it may all end on Dec. 21
(12/21/12, if you please).
All of what, you ask?
All of everything.
The final curtain.
Or as Porky Pig used to say, Duh-
duhba-duh-duhba-duh-That's all folks.

The Mayans, who are widely recog-
nized as mankind's all-time authority
on, well, Maya, predicted a long, long
time ago that the world would come to
an end as the result of some cataclysmic
event on 12/21/12.
It is not clear just how this event
would affect our lives, but it certainly
would seem a downer for manufactur-
ers of 2013 calendars.
On other hand, sales of multi-million
dollar "apocalypse-proof villas," a
better marketing term than "doomsday
shelters," are reported to be booming
from Kansas to the Swiss Alps.
And there are iPhone apps for count-
ing down our remaining days.
No less a seer than Nostradamus
made some predictions about this
stuff back in the 16th century, but after
doing a little on-line research on both
Nostradamus and the Mayan calen-
dar, I concluded that by comparison,
Obamacare may not be that hard to
understand after all.

Are you old enough to remember
those brilliant old Tareyton cigarette
ads that ran in the 1960s and 1970s (or
cigarette commercials at all)?
For those readers who are not,
the actor in this commercial would
appear with a black eye, saying, "Us
Tareyton smokers would rather fight
than switch," implying that they would
fight, or even take a punch, for a cause
or to make a principled decision they
believed in, like smoking Tareytons.
Those commercials were popular in
a turbulent political era when not only
popular politicians but the average
American, took principled and some-
times unpopular stands on either side

newspapers have published 353 stories
about such crimes.
Figures are pilfered outside city
halls and shopping malls, from
churches and old folks' front porches. In
Massachusetts, a thief left a note: "We
have Jesus. We will hang him unless the
police leave five cases of Budweiser here
Jan. 1." In Oklahoma, a company offered
GPS devices so if someone swiped your
Jesus, at least you could track him.
People in Frostproof say manger
crimes are unprecedented in their tiny
town, where everyone knows everyone.
"The Friendly City" is home to about
3,000 people and a dozen churches.
"The Christian presence in everybody's
life around here is quite strong," said
council member Biehl. In the spirit of
forgiveness, Biehl doesn't want whoever
took the town's doll to go to jail. She just
wants the baby back. "Whoever did this
needs a serious talking-to," she said.
Frostproof's nativity figures are life-
size: three wise men, two shepherds,
three camels, two lambs and the proud
parents. Town workers carved them
from plywood more than 20 years ago
and repainted them last fall.
Jesus was the only three-dimensional


character, a cloth doll with a plastic
head and painted eyes. "I'd be sur-
prised if the whole thing was worth
$50," said Keene, whose employees also
built the palm-frond stable. "But it isn't
about the money. It's about: Why would
anyone take Jesus?"
Five days after the parade, Flat Mary
and Joseph were still staring down at
the Spanish moss that filled the empty
crib.
And detectives still had no suspect.
"We got two leads, which they're
checking out right now," Sheriff's Office
spokeswoman Carrie Eleazer said
Thursday.
A woman directed investigators to
a man she said had taken the doll. He
was with a friend that night, he said.
His alibi checked out.
"Turns out the tip came from a
disgruntled girlfriend," said Eleazer.
Another caller said the plastic savior
was in a cemetery. Detectives combed
all four graveyards around Frostproof,
but didn't find the doll or donkey.
"We have stepped up patrol around the
nativity," Eleazer said, in case someone
tries to take other figures. And in case the
thief returns to the scene of the crime.
Biehl couldn't bear the stark sym-
bolism: Christ was missing from the
Christmas tableau.
She called her daughter, who is 37.
Remember that baby doll you used


to take everywhere? The one that's
still sitting in the rocking chair in the
guest room? Of course her daughter
remembered Cynthia. And she would
be honored to donate her to such a
worthy cause.
"I didn't have anything to dress her
in, so I just wrapped it in white trash
bags," Biehl said.
On Thursday, she laid the replace-
ment Jesus in the manger and called
the public works manager. "Can you
find some better clothes?"
Keene draped a cranberry tea towel
across the toy, but he wasn't sure about
this imposter. This baby had a huge
head and thick, brown hair. It looked
older than a newborn, not so holy.
That night, he asked his wife: Was
there a better doll he could borrow?
"You can have mine, Daddy," said his
10-year-old daughter, Brana. "Just make
sure you bring her back."
So on Friday morning, with the city
manager at his side, Keene took the
hairy baby out of the manger and set
the bald doll in its place. Keene tucked
the tea towel around its cloth body,
then walked to his truck. "Oh wait," he
said. "I better find something to secure
it."
By noon, Frostproof's third holy
infant seemed to be slumbering
peacefully, his tiny wrists zip-tied to the
manger.


Crop estimate falls

five percent
The U.S. Department of Agriculture
Tuesday said its estimate of the 2012-
2013 Florida citrus crop has decreased
more than 5 percent to 146 million
boxes.
The majority of the decrease will
occur in early-mid varieties which de-
clined 7 million boxes to 67 million from
the USDAs initial October estimate.
Valencias decreased 1 million boxes to
79 million boxes. The USDA makes its
first estimate in October of each year
and revises it monthly.
"This decrease was not entirely
unexpected as we have been hearing
reports of severe fruit drop throughout
the state," said MichaelW Sparks, execu-
tiveVP/CEO of Florida Citrus Mutual.
"The dry weather coupled with intense
disease pressure growers are facing is
most likely causing the drop. I anticipate
the decrease in crop size will continue to
put upward pressure on fruit pricing."
The USDA reported in November a
case of so-called "citrus black spot" near
U.S. 27 north of the Highlands and Polk
county line. Only one infected orange
was found in a nine sqaure-mile area
around the site. The area will be looked
at again later in the growing season. It is
the first reported case in Polk.

former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist
had announced on Twitter that he
had switched his registration to the
Democratic Party.
Suntanned Charlie switched parties,
choosing to avoid the fight for modera-
tion in the GOP and take that black eye
on his perfect Adonis face.
People had been expecting Crist
to jump ship for quite a while. Yet
his decision marked not only a new
phase of a political career along a path
of populist expedience in building
his peculiar brand of "conservative
liberalism," a somewhat middle ground
politically. It also illustrated a lack of
that '60s fortitude to fight rather than
switch. Some GOP moderates, includ-
ing former Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen
Specter who switched parties after
30-plus years as a Republican to avoid
a bloody primary fight, lost anyway in
2010.
For a tuned-in politician, Crist has


made some really bad decisions in the
last few years. FIrst, he didn't appoint
himself to the U.S. Senate seat Mel
Martinez vacated. Then, he decided he
wanted to be a Senator after all instead
of staying in the governor's mansion.
Finally, he wasn't up to the fight and
decided not to take on Tea Party favor-
ite Sen. Marco Rubio as a Republican.
Crist is a truly gifted politician yet
somewhat a political enigma. He's
polished and enormously attractive
when in front of a lens but also likable
to the common man and woman. No
one works a room better than Charlie
Crist when campaigning, whether for
himself or for another candidate.
Yet his detractors say he has no true
principles, that he will take a stand
on an issue only after consulting his
pollster first. And now, worse, he is a
traitor, a dubious politician who has
proven in his abandonment of the
Republican Party that he is entirely out
for himself, a 21st century Benedict
Arnold.
And as governor, he ran the state
well, his term, in fact, marked by a
number of righteous decisions that ran


against his party's wishes and his po-
litical future including keeping early
voting polls open later during the 2008
election and vetoing a bill eliminating
tenure for Florida teachers.
Crist's biggest mistake as a
Republican leader was embracing
too enthusiastically both the Obama
Stimulus package and the president
himself when the Wall Street meltdown
occurred. His actions at the time were
basically no different than what New
Jersey Gov. Chris Christie did recently
in working together with President
Obama as storms battered his state.
Both governors, as moderate
Republicans, correctly recognized
that in times of crisis, they must cast
politics aside and take the appropri-
ate action to protect the interests of
citizens.
The difference is that Christie,
while taking the black eye from GOP
loyalists for his Obama embrace, did
not continue a love affair with the
president. He turned around and
quickly vetoed legislation establish-
ing a state-run health insurance
exchange, blaming the Obama


administration for not providing the
answers he said he needed to make a
fiscally sound decision on the presi-
dent's health care law.
Christie is the same moderate
Republican he was before Hurricane
Sandy-and is looking pretty both for
reelection and as a possible presiden-
tial candidate in 2016.
Crist, on the other hand, chose
to continue to embrace Obama,
ditch the moderate wing of the GOP
and abandon moderate Republican
principles. And he did all this in 2010,
just when the social-conservative and
Tea-Party surge lead to initial, but not
sustainable, voter support.
Now, what remains to be seen now
is if Crist's tortured political journey
will continue if he decides to run for
Governor as a Democrat and make a
Specter of himself.

ABC News did a story suggesting that while the


Mayans may have been onto something, the actual
global endgame may have been miscalculated by 50
to 100 years.
Every little bit helps.

mother Hailey said.
Hailey and her family struggled
through hard financial times after
moving to Frostproof more than a
year ago.
Her husband went into a coma for
six months following a severe brain
injury caused by an accident.
With her husband incapacitated,
and her without a job, Hailey was
forced to rely on his Social Security
earnings to keep her family afloat.
She found relief from the
Frostproof Care Center which
offered furniture for her home and
clothes for her children.
The advice she received from the
center's Financial Fitness Program
helped her family weather their
financial situation.
"The program is really good for
young people who need to know
about savings, especially when
you're living off paycheck to pay-
check," she said. "You learn little
things to save here and there, and
by the end of the month, it really
adds up."
Since then, Hailey has been
volunteering at the center as a way
to repay them for their kindness.
"These are wonderful people,"
she said. "They are willing to help
anyone in this area who needs it
and they ask nothing in return."
The Financial Fitness Program is
a free six-week course that teaches
families and individuals how to
achieve and maintain financial
self-sufficiency.
"We teach families how to man-
age their money instead of having
their money manage them," said
Director of Programs and Client
:Services, Michele Lescard, MSW.
The program is offered by the
Frostproof Care Center, a Christian
organization partnered with United
Way that aids disadvantaged
families with their long-term and
short-term financial needs.
The program sessions include a
free dinner followed by child and
;adult classes that teach important
,skills including budgeting, saving,
banking, credit score repair, job
skills, resume writing, and basic
literacy.
The program's age-appropriate
curriculum was developed by
Independent Financial Literacy
Consultant/Educator Christie Sitek
who also teaches the adult classes.
"The purpose of the program is to
stop the generational cycle of poor
budgeting and lack of savings,"
Lescard said. "Too often you have
an entire family who remain in the
same financial difficulty generation


to generation, from grandparents to
parents to children, all because they
lack the necessary skills to escape
it."
In partnership with Citizens
Bank and Trust, the program allows
families to open their own savings
accounts free of charge. Families
are then encouraged to save and
maintain a budget through subse-
quent sessions to show their con-
secutive budget deposits.
If they attend five of the six
classes, arrive for two budget ses-
sions, and make four consecutive
deposits over four months, families
will be eligible for the center's
match program which will add to
the person's savings account.
Financial mentoring through the
Care Center is offered during and
after the program to families for as
long as they require it.
"There are no quick fixes to the
generational cycle, which is why
mentoring is important," Lescard
said. "This is a process which takes
time."
Everything in the program is free
and available to anyone wishing to
participate: the six sessions with
dinner and classes, the savings
accounts, child care for children
under 3, transportation for those
who require it, financial mentoring
from the center, along with door
prizes, gift cards, and a chance to
win $150.
"Most financial education pro-
grams like this would require a high
fee in order to participate, but we
offer it for free along with initia-
tives," Lescard said.
The program originally started
as individual monthly classes, but
since 2010, has evolved into six-
week courses offered every spring
and fall.
Since then, attendance has grown,
with 23 families having attended
the spring program.
Last year, 40 families successfully
completed the program with eight
eligible for the Match Program.
"Just recently a participant stated
she was able to apply what she had
learned from the program to raise
her credit score," Lescard claimed.
The program has proven both
successful and popular with mas-
sive support from Frostproof and its
surrounding areas.
"The community has been very
receptive to helping us, encourag-
ing people to get the word out on
it," Lescard said. "This is a much
needed service and we only wish
there were more families making
use of this opportunity."

of scheduled classes, contact the
Frostproof Care Center at 863-635-
5555, or visit their website at www.

High time for a Christmas High Tea


Although we're not sure they had any fancy titles, like co-chairman of
the decorating committee, when Frostproof Baptist Church recently
hosted a special Christmas High Tea event, Alice Brantley and Leslie
Robarts made sure it was a festive looking affair.

The pouring of the tea was of great interest to everyone at the table during a recent Christmas
High Tea celebration ot Frostproof Baptist Chuch.


Cierra Anderson sips on her tea. High Tea is a hearty,
simple, sit-down meal that originated during the Indus-
trial Revolution in 19th century England. It often served
as the main meal of the day for workers. The menu can
feature foods such as meat pies, sausage, breads, cheese,
relishes, desserts, fruits, and, of course, tea.

Hanukkah, o Hanukkah, Come Light the Menorah


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

It did not matter whether one was
Jewish, all were welcome to and
did join in and attend and partici-
pate in the third annual Hanukkah
menorah lighting Sunday, Dec. 9, at
Lake Mirror in Lakeland.
Sponsored by Chabad of Polk
County, children and adults alike had
the opportunity to indulge in games
and entertainment, as well as nosh
on foods associated with the holiday,


"I'm here with Keden, said his grandfather,
Owen Heatwole, "so he can learn about other
traditions"' Neither are Jewish. Keden, 6, said
the Hanukkah menorah lighting party was
exciting.






Depending upon who you asked, the question
was either yes or no whether Hanukkah went
to the dogs ... in this case, Gizmo Geodog, who
sports a pair of dreidels.


such as latkes (potato pancakes).
In addition to Rabbi Moshe
Lazaros, guest of honor Michael
Wiener who had the honor of
lighting the nine-foot menorah as
well as Lakeland Mayor Gow Fields
and Polk County Sheriff Grady
Judd, greeted those in attendance.
All spoke on the significance of
Hanukkah.
Hanukkah, which is known as the
Festival of Lights, began Saturday night,
Dec. 8, and will last eight days, with the
last lighting the night of Dec. 15.

State rules could cost $20M to fix county jail


Legislators also hear

By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Monday morning Assistant County
Manager Lea Ann Thomas presented
gave state lawmakers the county's top
five concerns in a legislative delega-
tion meeting.
State Senators Denise Grimsley, Kelli
Stargel and Darren Soto were present,
as were Florida Representatives Seth
McKeel, Ben Albritton, Neal Combee,
Mike LaRosa and John Wood.
County Commission chairperson
Melony Bell introduced the delegates
then moved quickly to the business
at hand; letting lawmakers know the
top issues on the minds of county
residents and elected officials.
Thomas presented the county's top five
concerns, in the morning session by:
A legislative proposal to shift a
number of state prisoners to county
jails, which in Polk's case could add
as many as 300 inmates to the current
population, increasing the annual cor-
rections budget by $7.5 million as well.
Changing Medicaid oversight back
to state and federal authorities; agree-
ing to chip in a specified amount from
the county without being responsible
for administration.
Increased fees for issuance of
driver licenses and identification
cards. The county tax collectors are
now responsible for issuing driver
licenses, and the $6.25 fee they collect
for each transaction is short of the
estimated actual cost of $16.83.
A proposal to construct a new
Lower Floridian Aquifer wellfield in


that ESE student testing unfair in legislative delegation meeting


southeast Polk County, east of Lake
Wales, to increase and support the
water supply for the eastern part of
Polk County. The water withdrawn
from the wellfield would be trans-
ported to a regional treatment facility
for advanced treatment.
Allow cities and counties to
continue levying local business taxes,
including occupational license fees,
reported to be a primary source of
monies for economic development.
Individual county commissioners
have been assigned to these priorities,
to oversee their progress throughout
the year. New commissioner John Hall
is the representative for the jail issue;
Ed Smith for the Medicaid concern;
Melony Bell, the driver license fee
increase request; new commissioner
George Lindsey the alternative water
supply item; and Todd Dantzler the
occupational license fee question.
As the day passed, it became ap-
parent that water supply and quality
loomed as the issue of the day, but the
jail inmate shift would no doubt have
the most immediate impact, through
inmate overcrowding, cost of admin-
istration, and the need to expand
facilities.
The Department of Corrections is
suggesting that the state cut by one
day, the sentence needed to send
inmates to state prison. Current law
states that inmates must be sentenced
to a year and a day to serve their time
in state prisons. The new proposal
asks that only inmates with a year re-
maining at the time of their sentence
would be sent to DOC.


So an inmate in county jail, for
example, for 30 days awaiting trial
and sentencing, then sentenced to
364 days, would stay in the county jail
under the umbrella of "time served."
The costs of this shift would be
enormous to Polk, according to Andria
McDonald and Maj. Michael Allen of
the Polk Sheriff's Department.
"We would have to build another
tower at the jail, at a cost of $20 mil-
lion," McDonald said. "It would cost
another $7.5 million annually to run
it."
Albritton, R-Wauchula, noted that
those were 2008 figures, based on the
cost of building the first tower, and
undoubtedly it would now cost more.
"We would have to change the
design of the 'pod' also,"Allen noted,
referring to the large residential area
where as many as 125 inmates are
housed. Allen oversees jail operations
for the county.
"Staffing would have to be ramped
up to accommodate the new inmate
influx, and they would have to meet
certain behavioral standards to be in
the general population pod, which
might not met by the state prisoners,"
Allen said.
Wood, R-Haines City, said "If things
are that close, it doesn't sound like you
have adequate capacity."
Freeman explained to Wood that
initially two towers were planned, but
budget constraints and a drop in the
inmate population drove the decision
to cut back to one. "Unfortunately,
the inmate population has increased
about six percent over the past year,"


he added.
The county's position paper given
to the delegates and opposing the
measure, noted that the change would
likely result in judges giving longer
sentences, to ensure time in state
prison. The year-and-a-day sentences
might go up to 18 months, "which
would ultimately not be in the best
interests of DOC or counties," the
report concluded.
Also at Monday's session, the Polk
School Board, represented by interim
Superintendent John Stewart, asked
for fairness to ESE students, whose
centers are threatened with closure
due to their low showing on the state's
"school grading system."
Both Stewart and Polk Education
Association President Marianne
Capoziello noted there is unfairness
in testing students with severe dis-
abilities students and holding their
schools and teachers accountable for
the scores.
"Some of these students have no
cognitive function," she noted. "What
sense does it make to do this?"
The district also asked for local
decision-making flexibility, particu-
larly in evaluating teachers. Capoziello
noted under the new rules for evaluat-
ing teachers, educators at even "A"
schools were not getting the top scores
under the "value-added" formula the
state is requiring this year.
The afternoon legislation featured
a number of representatives of non-
profit organizations asking for consid-
eration at budget time and thanking
the delegates for past funding.

Fall Fest serves up family fun at FES


Frostproof Elementary recently hosted its always popular "Happy Fall Y'all" festival. Staff got
very creative with their decorations for the many parents and family members who visited their
students during the school day.


Students were able to grab lunch in the cafeteria, but instead of eating inside, festival fall-
themed tables were set up outside in the covered PE area.


One of the popular spots was the old-time tractor which provided adults a great photo opportu-
nity with their kids.

of the Court and County Comptroller,
Richard Weiss had exceptionally
good news to convey to Polk County
Commissioners at the Dec. 4 regular
BOCC meeting.
"I want to tell you, as the elected
comptroller of this Board, one of the
areas I really enjoyed over the years is
overseeing the bonding of the county,"
Weiss said, "And this last issue we dealt
with last week let me go out with I
point (out) the word the 'bang.' It's a
real pleasure."
Discussing the Series 2003 Utility
Bond funding, his office had started
in August 2011 monitoring the pos-
sibility of refunding bond holders. At
the time, there was a net value savings
of $700,000, and was getting better.
Consequently there were those who
urged the county go ahead with the
refunding, but Weiss opted to wait. He
told the BOCC he was glad the decision
to wait prevailed. It resulted in a net
savings of more than $8 million on a
$43 million bond.
Weiss added that strong ratings from
Moody's, S & P (Standard & Poor), and
Fitch helped eliminate the need to
insure the bonds which would have
cost the county $300,000.
The "net present value savings" on the
$43.8 bonds was $9.7 million.
"Which is a 20 percent savings, which
is, at least in my lifetime, unheard of,"

LOCAL ARRESTS
Nov. 13
Collis Morris, 23, of 68 Lincoln Street, Frostproof -
charged with failure to appear and violation of probation.
Nov. 17
Manu Aguillon-Gomez, 23, of 1380 Otto Polk Road,
Frostproof charged with possession of blank, fictitious
drivers license and driving without a valid license.
Ayala Baltazar, 44, of 406 Thomas Avenue, Frostproof
- charged with driving with an expired license. Olga
Chavez, 43, of W. Frostproof Road #3, Frostproof -
charged with driving with a suspended license.

Nov. 26
Troy Collins, 48, of 285 Lake Avenue S. Lot 3, Frostproof
- charged with possession of cocaine.

Nov. 28
Jason Pinion, 35, of 10 Lantana Road, Frostproof


he said. The standard to consider before
refunding is 3 percent, "And we hit 20
percent."
Annual savings will average about
$500,000 per hear from 2013-2017,
then jump to $720,000 per year from
2018-2029.
Yet another benefit Weiss told the
BOCC was that the bonds were tax-
exempt, and will remain as such. The
only concern might be the federal
government will limit the amount an
individual based on income can
save on tax-exempt bonds.
Weiss concluded by reiterating his
elation.
"It's been a total joy for me to handle
that for you (the BOCC) and the coun-
ty," said Weiss. "It's nice to go out with
such a positive..."
"Bang," interjected BOCC
Chairwoman Melony Bell.
When Weiss stood for questioning,
Commissioner George Lindsey asked
whether this would allow the county
to build up its financial reserves. Weiss
replied it would do more.
"The county will be in a good position
to refund current bonds and sell new
bonds," said Weiss. At this point, County
Manager Jim Freeman stated that the
current county budget assumed the
need for additional bonds in order to
expand its current utility system.
After being thanked by Bell, the final
words Weiss had to say were of a jovial
nature.
"It's nice to be in Polk County," he
said. "It's cold in NewYork."

Nutrition is the same for our furry friends


Nutrition is an important aspect of
our lives and it should for our pets also.
What we eat and how much we eat can
affect our overall health; the same is
true of our furry friends.
There are certain ingredients that are
necessary for proper health of skin, fur,
teeth and other parts of the body.
These ingredients include protein,
carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins.
All animals should receive a complete

the correct amounts of these key
ingredients.
Your veterinarian can be a good
source of information about what type
of food your particular pet should eat
based on breed, age, lifestyle, overall
health and activity level.
But, if you are looking for food at the
store, labels can be confusing (just like
labels on our food, too).
Here are just a few tips to help you
navigate ... 1) ingredients are listed in
descending order by weight; 2) byprod-
ucts means anything clean other than
meat, such as spleen, lung, kidney;

Whiskey's owners passed away and

3) each brand of food has a different
amount of calories per cup, which
currently is not required on the label,
but hopefully will be soon; 4) the life
stage of the food should be appropriate
for your animal's age. That is a puppy
should not eat senior food and an old
dog should not eat puppy food.
So what about treats? Snacks should
be less than 10 percent of the pet's total
diet. So you can feed treats, just do not
overfeed.
Healthy treats will help to maintain

an animal's ideal weight. Some animals
like apples or carrots or string beans;
these are great low calorie treats if your
pet will eat them. Do NOT feed grapes
or raisins as these can cause kidney


failure in some animals. Although
many people feed table food, it is not
an ideal source of nutrition. If you feed
the fat from your steak, or the bone
from your pork, you can create many
different problems (obstruction, pan-
creatitis, diarrhea, just to name a few.
Please be careful with rawhide chews
and pig's ears as some dogs will chew
off large pieces of these treats which


can lead to intestinal obstructions.
Also, some items are not manufactured
in this country, and are not held to the
strict standards of the U.S. Look for
products made in the U.S.
Dog biscuits are good, so long as you
do not feed too many. Moderation is a
good thing. Be careful to choose treats
that do not have too many chemicals,
as these are no healthier for our pets


than they are for us.

Lake Wales mayor floats casino idea


Long odds as city looks for ways


to help Grand Hotel


renovation


By BILL ROGERS
BROGERS@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
A casino in Lake Wales?
Mayor Mike Carter believes the
question needs to be asked to the
citizens and he plans to request that
the Lake Wales City Commission
consider placing it on the ballot for
the election next April.
"I'm not yet convinced it's the
right thing," Carter said Thursday.
"The citizens need to decide.
"There is a lot of potential upside
- and some concerns," he added.
The idea of a casino came about
as a use for the old Grand Hotel,
Carter said. The mayor said he
wants to see the hotel preserved
and a casino is a way to do that.
The hotel is currently undergoing
a massive renovation by developer
Ray Brown.
A casino could be an "economic
shot in the arm" for Lake Wales and
revitalize downtown, Carter said.
The mayor noted people now get
on a bus in Lake Wales and travel to
the casino in Tampa. Carter said if
the question appears on the ballot it
might say should the city staff pur-
sue the possibility of converting the
Grand Hotel into a casino? Voters
would respond "Yes" or "No."
Carter realizes that there are other
agencies that would have to get
involved. A casino would require
state approval, he said.


Commissioner Christopher Lutton
said that considering it has only
been about five years since the
community approved the sale of
beer and wine on Sunday it would
be "kind of a real stretch" to think
there would a lot of support for a
casino here.
Lutton thinks the vast majority of
people will have "heartburn" about
it.
The commissioner said he under-
stands Carter's point of view but
would rather have a manufacturing
company come to Lake Wales.
Lutton pointed out that the hotel
is owned by Brown and added that
Brown hasn't asked the city to do
this.
Commissioners Jonathan
Thornhill and Terrye Howell could
not be reached for comment Friday.
Commissioner Betty Wojcik declined
to comment when asked about the
mayor's idea on Thursday.
In terms of any crime potential,
Lake Wales Police Chief Chris
Velasquez said he would need to
have a lot more information about
it.
If it does happen Carter said he
would like to see a portion of the
proceeds from the casino set aside

Helping those who need help for holiday


With the holiday season approaching
there are many in the community who
who do not have the same opportunity
as others to provide for the season they
hoped and there are organizations that
are lending a helping hand. They are
looking for help from the community to
make that happen.

Bartow Fire Department
The Bartow Fire Department is
continuing its yearly plans this year
to bring a brighter Christmas to
families in need in Bartow with a toy
drive.
For people who want to help with
the seven families it has chosen
toys must be delivered to the fire
department by Tuesday, Dec. 18. The
Bartow Fire Department is at 110 E.
Church St., which is on the corner of
Broadway and Church.
"We are open between 7 in the
morning and 7 at night and we'll
store them there and separate it and
we're planning to deliver them on
Dec. 21," said John Calandros who is
organizing the drive.
The collection and distribution has
been done by the fire department
for years and through word of mouth
some donations have come in but
more are needed.
Calandros said ultimately he chose
seven families and about 15-20
children.
With people knowing what the fire
department does every year there
have been others in the commu-
nity that have lent more help than
providing toys.
"We've had a couple of anonymous
donors. One school that didn't want
to be mentioned adopted a family
and one anonymous family donated
$500," he said.
Anyone with questions about do-
nating, can call the fire department
at 863-534-5044.

Church Service Center
The Church Service Center will
distribute its gifts and food on Dec.
14 and hopes to have enough for
more than 250 families in the Bartow
area, said Dixie Sylvia.
This year they started an Angel
Tree where people can adopt a fam-
ily and she said the families are off
all different sizes all with one com-
mon theme: they don't have enough
to get by.
"It can be for senior, a single mom.
with children or large families," she
said. "One family has 14 children,
most are foster children."
While toys are always needed food
items to help are always necessary,
too.
"The big item is meat," Sylvia said.
Sylvia said she would like to get
the items by Dec. 15 but anything
anyone wants to donate after that
would be welcomed.
"I would have to know to get
everything delivered," she said.
And, she said if people want to
adopt a family, she can give them the
number of people in the family and
the ages of the children. And, she
said the people can remain anony-
mous if they prefer that.
To find out more about helping the
organization call 863-533-5822 or
email bartowcsc@hotmail.com

Help Of Fort Meade
HELP of Fort Meade plans to
distribute holiday food and gifts on
Dec. 19 and 20 and has a deadline of
Dec. 14 for applicants and those who
want to donate to get with them,
said CaSandra Bevis.
The organizations gives to families
a Christmas basket with either


turkey or ham and the whole meal
and the size depends on the size of
the family. And it gives Christmas
presents to somewhere in the neigh-
borhood of 105-125 children.
She said the donations and re-
quests for help is about the same
as it has been in years past but the
amount of donations has waned a
bit and she said it may have to be
capped because of that.
She said though donations have
been lower, this year she has gotten
some extra help from corporations,
giving as an example that Mosaic
helped with the turkey drive.
We've had organizations come in
and do support. Mosaic helped with
turkey drive.
For people who would like to help
they can call the organization in Fort
Meade at 863-285-6600.

Frostproof Care Center
In the effort to help about
160 families and 500 children in
Frostproof the center has a special
holiday assistance program where
they provide a meal of hams, chicken
or turkey and the rest of meal and
toys for children in the family.
The organization is currently
taking applications from families
who need help through Dec. 14 and
while it doesn't have a deadline for
the public to make donations it
does need them as soon as possible
so they can provide stuff for the
families.
"We take donations from the
community and the community has
always given us yearly holiday dona-
tions," said Michelle Lescared, the
director of programs and services.
She said they use the donations usu-
ally to buy what it is needed because
it is mostly financial donations and
applicants fill out what the children
are interested in so they can match
gifts to the child's desires as best
they can. However, people do donate
a lot of new toys which should be
unwrapped and specified whether it
is for a boy or girl. While donations
usually do well for the people in
Frostproof, Lecared said, "We defi-
nitely need more. We always need
donations for the holidays."
There are a number of ways to
make donations. People can consult
the www.frostproofcarecenter.com
or they can come to the office at 17
S. Scenic Highway, Frostproof, the
can call 863-635-5555 or they can
mail their donation to the address
with the Zip code 33843.

Lake Wales Care Center
The Lake Wales Care Center serves
families in Lake Wales, north to
Dundee, south to Babson Park and as
far as the Alutras area. The organiza-
tion has organized a drive to help
those in need and while it has just
started on the Christmas drive with
the Thanksgiving drive over, they are
taking appointments for applications
and donations are always needed, said
Gayleene Gilbreath, the director of
office and volunteers.
Last year the organization helped 600
families during Christmas Gilbreath
said and while donations are usually
enough, help is always needed.
"We have a wonderful community
that comes out," she said, adding while
donations are helpful, they do also
need help in wrapping and delivering
gifts and other items.
"At a certain designated day we'll be
packing the food boxes for Christmas,"
she said. "That will be a big program
that we can use volunteers. It's a busy
time of year and we can use all the
help we can get."


Lake Wales
Library Giving Tree
The Lake Wales Library Association
Friends of the Library invites
businesses, organizations and indi-
viduals to contribute to the annual
Giving Tree fund drive. Each holiday
season a tree covered with orna-
ments bearing names of books and

The Mission
The Mission was started by 71-year
old Tom Beauregard shortly after he
was converted to Christ in 1972.
Beauregard has a 41-year legacy
of ministry in Winter Haven. He
founded the Mission as a result of
his work with foster-care children.
He began feeding people by offering
meals at a local park. A number of
churches came together to progress
from these humble beginnings to
a storefront to the current location
in a 100-year old two-story home in
downtown Winter Haven. The orga-
nization has been in their current
location since 2000.
To accommodate those in need
The Mission for the 12th time is
organization a drive to provide toys
and food for those in need.
On Dec. 15 at Polk State College
there will be a celebration set up
that will have kids games and a
tent filled with toys where parents
will be allowed to go in and choose
Christmas gifts for their children.
"The parents can go shopping for
Christmas," said David Barry the
associate pastor of the New Hope
Church. "the children are not al-
lowed in ... that's Santa's toy shop.
All the toys are new unwrapped gifts
separated by ages and gender."
Barry said the organization focuses
on those generally in the Winter
Haven area who have "fallen trough
the cracks.
"They fall through somewhere and
something happens when they can't
get help," he said.
For those who would like to
donate, contact The Mission at 863-
299-2348. Financial donations can


be made at the organization's web-
site lovemakingadifference.com.

Wilson Ave., in Bartow is a drop off
point to participate in helping the
Toys for Tots drive and the organiza-
tion for the Polk County area will pick

place at the Carver Recreation Center
in Bartow where up to 1,000 children
will get Christmas presents in a
party that will go from 1-5 p.m. on
Saturday, Dec. 22.
The foundation is currently taking
donations for the drive which should
include new, unwrapped presents for
those from newborn to 16 years olds
for boys and girls. People can drop

ful business owner of a dry cleaning

60 years to create opportunities for
youth in the community including
paying tuition for those who oth-

enough to see the first toy drive when
it started out with just two children.

Dream for a perfect Christmas party


The holiday season will be packed
with parties, so it's a good idea to have
detailed plans.
Any party planner will tell you that
the key to having the perfect party is to
plan.
Spend five or 10 minutes visualizing
your party. This will help with place-
ment of foods, drinks, table setup and
traffic flow for your guests.
Make sure you have enough seating
for each guest. Make it easy on yourself
with after party cleanup by using nice
plastic ware unless your party is formal.
Choose a menu of heavy finger foods.
This type menu alleviates the added
worry of choosing dinnerware. Some
recipes may even be prepared ahead
and frozen until ready to use.
Set the mood with nice Christmas
music in the background and glowing
candles throughout the party area.
Guests love little party favors. Send your
guests' home with something special, a
candy cane tied with red ribbon, a bag
of candies or cookies will make all your
guests feel special.
Happy Party Planning.

Winter Haven Hospital has an in-
novative procedure called bronchial
thermoplasty for the treatment of
severe asthma.
The procedure is being performed
by Dr. Perwaiz Rahim, a pulmo-
nologist skilled in bronchoscopy
and is specially trained to perform
bronchial thermoplasty. The treat-
ment is intended for adults with
severe asthma who continue to have
asthma-related symptoms despite
standard-of-care medications.
Bronchial thermoplasty is an out-
patient procedure that treats severe


asthma by going to the source of
trouble. The lungs consist of mul-
tiple airway passages surrounded
by tissue known as "airway smooth
muscle." For people with asthma,
this airway smooth muscle is more
susceptible to triggers and irritants
that can cause it to constrict and
reduce the amount of air that flows
through the lungs.
Bronchial thermoplasty uses a
small catheter to deliver controlled
energy to the airways of the lung to
reduce the amount of excessive air-
way smooth muscle. This reduction


decreases the muscle's ability to
constrict the airways, resulting in
decreased frequency of asthma
attacks.
Bronchial thermoplasty with the
FDA-approved Alair System for
adults with severe asthma who are
not well-controlled on current medi-
cations. It is expected to comple-
ment asthma medications by provid-
ing long-lasting asthma control.
The procedure is routinely per-
formed under sedation and the
patient goes home the same day.
In clinical studies, the benefits of


bronchial thermoplasty included
reduced severe asthma attacks,
decreased visits to the emergency
room and hospital for respiratory
symptoms, and less time lost from
work or school due to asthma.
There are risks, including a tem-
porary increase and worsening
of respiratory-related symptoms
immediately after the procedure
that could require hospitalization.
Patients may also need to contact
their medical insurance provider
to confirm reimbursement for this
procedure.


Lee named Cornerstone president CEO


Cornerstone
Hospice and
Palliative Care has
named Charles
"Chuck" Lee as
president and chief
executive officer.
Lee is a vet-
eran in the hospice
industry who has
led patient care
operations, stra-
tegic planning,
fund raising, business development
and volunteer recruitment at several
hospice organizations.
"We are fortunate to welcome
Chuck to our leadership team," said
John Moore, Cornerstone Hospice
Board chairman. "His proven ability
to work collaboratively to provide
exceptional care while sustaining
and expanding programs will benefit
the organization as we move into


a challenging time for health care
providers."
Lee said, "Cornerstone has a long
tradition of excellence in serving
dying persons and their loved ones
in Central Florida, and I'm excited to
play a part in keeping that tradition
strong in the years ahead."
Lee, who most recently has served
as chief operations officer at Hospice
of Chattanooga in Tennessee, will
assume his role at Cornerstone
Hospice, which serves seven Central
Florida counties, on Jan. 2.
Prior to Chattanooga, Lee
served as senior vice president of
Operations at Covenant Hospice in
Pensacola. and worked with hospices
across the country as a leader with
the Studer Covenant Alliance.
"In the coming years, hospice
programs including Cornerstone -
will face daunting challenges," Lee
said. "Tighter regulations, changes


in reimbursement,
and increased
competition will
demand that ..
Cornerstone
enhance the qual- /
ity of its service :.
delivery, keep costs
under control, and
find creative new
ways to ensure that David Jones
our caring mission
remains intact."
Cornerstone Hospice has been
providing compassionate care for
people facing life-limiting illnesses
and their families since 1984. In
2011, the agency served 4,281
patients, plus, the agency said.
"While challenges certainly ex-
ist, great opportunities lie ahead
for Cornerstone," Lee said. "More
people request hospice care each
year, and Cornerstone's reputation


for excellence positions us as the
provider of choice for hospice and
palliative care across Central Florida.
That's a powerful combination for
growth in the years ahead."
Lee replaces interim CEO Mary
Manrique, who has led the organiza-
tion since February and who did
not pursue the permanent position.
Manrique will resume her role as
chief operations officer.
Additionally, David L. Jones has
been named Cornerstone Hospice's
Chief Financial Office after serving
as interim since January 2012. Jones
has more than 23 years experience
as a controller or chief financial
officer for health care facilities and
organizations.
-He has led an initiative to re-
engineer the organization's financial
reporting, which improved gover-
nance and allowed management to
better focus on key issues.

Pain rTed ip@r breathing will treat rib injuries


DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: I recently cracked two ribs
at home. I had a terrible accident,
and there was much pain. The doc-
tor treating me would not wrap my
chest, and only gave me pain pills.
What is the standard treatment for
rib fractures? L.B.
ANSWER: Rib fractures are not
uncommon, and can happen with
even a moderate blow to the chest.
When a rib fracture is suspected,
an X-ray usually is done to confirm
the diagnosis, to look for other
injuries and to see if the fracture is
displaced -- meaning, potentially,
that a sharp end of broken rib can
do damage to the lung and other
tissues inside. Fortunately, usually
this happens only in high-impact
injuries.
Unlike other bones, ribs cannot be
effectively immobilized, even with
the tightest chest wrap. The ribs
move every time you breathe, so
healing can be painfully prolonged.
Pain medication is necessary, es-
pecially because the body's natural
tendency is to "splint" over to one
side, causing the affected ribs to
move less. This is dangerous, be-
cause the lungs don't inflate as well
underneath the area of the fracture,
and collapse of part of the lung can
lead to infection. I have seen several
cases of serious pneumonia due
to rib fractures. Pain medication
and breathing exercises reduce the
splinting and the risk of infection.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: T\ .-nr:t. years ago, I had sur-
gery on my lower back due to disk

disease. Although the surgeon put in
plates and screws, the process was
not successful. I would have pain
all the time, were it not for hydro-
codone and tramadol. I take each
of these four times a day. I have
tried cutting down to three times
a day, but it is too painful. I saw a
different back surgeon, who said
the best hope for fixing the problem
correctly would be to go in the front
of the body and then in the back,
anchoring from both directions. I'm
scared to death to do that. I am now
72 years old.
My reason for writing is to ask you
if I am harming myself in any way.
I worry about it a lot. I do not see
any side effects of the medication --
maybe I've become a little immune
to them. V.W.
ANSWER: Yours is a very common
story. Surgery for back pain helps
most of the time -- but sometimes
IT doesn't help or even makes things
worse. I consult surgical colleagues
who are known to be cautious about

the decision to operate, since a
back surgery that fails is the worst
possible outcome. Before doing
back surgery -- especially a second
back surgery -- both patient and
surgeon need to consider that back
pain usually gets better over time,
and that surgery occasionally makes
things worse. There are certainly a
few times when back surgery needs
to be done right away: In the case of
weakness that is getting worse, back
surgery can save nerves, muscles
and the ability to function.
If you are able to do the things
you need to do, are getting enough
pain relief to get you by, even if you
still have some pain, then I would
be very cautious about getting back
surgery.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: More than a year ago, my
wife was diagnosed with CRP. Tell
me more about it. L.B.
ANSWER: CRP, C-reactive protein,
is a lab test that indicates there's in-
flammation somewhere in the body.


It's not a specific test for a specific
disease. It's slipped far down in the
rankings of important lab tests.
However, a new test called hsCRP,
high-sensitivity CRP, is used to
detect inflammation that fosters
heart attacks. An elevated hsCRP is
a value greater than 3 mg/L. This
test has to be interpreted in light of
other tests and in light of a patient's
symptoms. It can be a deciding
factor, for instance, in starting a
person on one of the station drugs,
the popular drugs for lowering
cholesterol.

No matter how good a person Aunt Joyce was, her joints
were bad. After her first knee replacement, she was driving
in two weeks. Another knee and a hip replacement later
made Joyce a "regular." And each time her recovery was
exceptional. Perhaps that's why our Orthopedic Services are
ranked in the top 10% in the nation by HealthGrades, the
leading independent healthcare ratings organization.
It certainly has made Joyce a big winner.

The final the steps involved in the loan process continued...


7. THE DOCUMENTATION FOR CLOSING
The final step in this process is completed when all
the loan documents are sent back to the title com-
pany to close escrow. Once the title company receives
the check from the lender, they make the lender's loan
security a matter of public record. They record the
note and deed of trust at the county recorder's office.
What are typical closing costs?
Owner's Title Insurance: This varies based on sales
price of the property: Starting at around $300 for
property
$50,000 and Jeff Bush

Doc
Stamps on
Niortgage b Ji
(or Note):
This is a
state tax Pi e 'l : ?."l-.t. h '
that is cal-
culated on
the
loaned amount of your purchase, at a rate of $.35
cents per $100 of mortgage amount.
Intangible Tax on Mortgage (or Note): This is
another state tax paid at the note amount x .002(no
rounding up)
There may also be additional fees, such as doc prep
($75-$150), recording (S25-$50), and title search fees
($200-$300). Typically the seller chooses the closing
agent.
Doc Stamps on Deed: This tax is calculated as the
result of $.70 cents on every $100 of sales price.
In the current buyer's market, as part of the negotia-
tion, you may also decide to agree to pay for some
of the traditional buyer's closing costs. The informa-
tion for buyers would apply to you as a seller if those
fees/costs were negotiated as part of your purchase.

Broker Compensation: The compensation a seller

Broker compensation typically comes from ., I ,
proceeds at closing from the sale of the property.
What are points and why pay them?
SAnyone who has ever shopped for quotes on a
mortgage to find out just how much it might cost has
likely heard about mortgage points. Though the term
might seem abstract, the concept is actually quite
simple. Mortgage points describe certain charges to
be paid in order to obtain a mortgage on a home.
Each mortgage point is a fee based on one percent of
the total amount of the loan.
Borrowers should bear in mind that there are two
different kinds of mortgage points-discount points
and origination points-and that lenders do not all
charge the same amount for these different types of
points. Discount points'refer to an amount of money
paid to a lender to obtain a loan at a specific interest


rate. These points are like pre-paid interest on a loan
that a borrower takes out for a new home, with each
point equaling to 1% of the total principal amount
of the loan. For example, if a loan is for $100,000,
one point is worth $1,000. Each point one purchases
will therefore lower his or her interest rate by some
amount. Origination points are used to pay for the
costs of obtaining the loan in the first place. They are
much less popular than discount points, as they do
not provide borrowers with any valuable benefits and
are not tax deductible. Borrowers are therefore better
off trying to get a loan that does not require.them
to acquire these kinds of points. The-decision to get
mortgage points depends on a few key considerations.
The length of time one plans to .live in the house and
the amount of the down payment one will be putting
down are two such. factors.A mnortgagor who plans to
live in the house for many years would benefit from
obtaining discount points because they will lower the
interest rates for the long term.
