Polk State to finalize Frostproof study soon


Consideration being given to classes at


city hall


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Polk State College is expected to wrap
up in a few weeks a study to determine
whether or not offering classes at
Frostproof City Hall might be feasible.
A school spokesman said the study
should be completed by "mid January."
Frostproof's city hall is the old high
school, and Polk State is considering
offering classes there if it is deemed to
be economically feasible.
"Polk State College has a tradition


of exploring partnership requests to
determine a'best fit' in regards to the
institution's mission, vision and strate-
gic initiatives," noted a school spokes-
person. "The City of Frostproof has
initiated conversation with Polk State
College to explore a possible partner-
ship to offer classes in the Frostproof
community. Therefore, at the request
and approval of the City Council of
Frostproof, the College is exploring
costs that would be associated with
renovating the current Frostproof City
building for instructional purposes."


The study is just the first step in a
process that would need to address
several issues, including the expense
of making some of city's halls rooms
classroom ready again.
"If the project is ultimately deemed
to be logistically feasible by the college
administration and strategically appro-
priate by the college's District Board of
Trustees, any costs associated with the
project would need to be covered by
sources external to the college, whether
private or public," they added. "In the
meantime, Polk State is proud to be


the College of choice for communities
throughout our county. We continue
to lead the region in access, affordabil-
ity and quality and the continued
engagement of communities such as
Frostproof is critical to that legacy."
One of the school's most recent
outreach efforts, in Lake Wales, is just
now coming to fruition.
Polk State will begin offering its first
classes at the Polk State College Lake
Wales Arts Center on Jan. 7.

Safety concern hits the top


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
We are entrusted with
your children, Page 4
Today I cried, Page 5
If you want to know if parents in Polk
County are concerned with safety in
the schools after Friday's mass killing in
Newtown, Conn., consider this: When
Greg Bondurant, Polk County's Director
of Safe Schools, returned from a morn-
ing of meetings Monday he was handed
a list of parents he said he had to call


back that day and it was three pages
long.
And, that doesn't even include the
parents who called him Friday. Were the
question concerning the current safety
situation or what the school district
intends to do?
"It's a little of both," he said. "We're
already doing some things and have
been all along, but it's also what are we
going to do."
What the public school district has
been doing is keeping in constant com-
munication with parents and staff about
the safety concern that has been on the


top of people's minds since the shooting
happened on Friday.
'One thing is we (he and Interim
Superintendent John Stewart) sent an
email out to principals over the week-
end and we asked as it has been in the
past to make sure classroom doors are
locked," Bondurant said. "If someone is
in the school who is supposed to be in
there, then it's OK."
Bondurant has gotten with Polk
County Sheriff Grady Judd who is put-
ting officers at the elementary schools.
Bondurant said this is not an over-reac-
tion because it is evident from the calls


that "parents want to see something."
"Other counties are doing the same
thing," he said.
High school and middle schools in
Polk County have school resource offi-
cers but the elementary schools do not.
Bondurant said the reason for this is
two-fold: safety concerns and the cost.
He said there is less likelihood of
in-school violence at the elementary
school level than there is in the other
schools, less breaking up of students
where students go about things without

VIEWPOINT



Pay attention in dry season


because your outdoor fun could be deadly


Yes, we got a little moisture recently. But
still, don't ignore warnings from fire officials
about the threat of wildfires.
Consider it "winter cleaning." Or "dry
season protection."
And now that winter is here, we can't ex-
pect a lot more rain. Good for beach-lovers
and campers but consider the downside.
"Winter holidays provide a great op-
portunity for Floridians to enjoy time with
friends and family outdoors," said Florida
Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H.
Putnam. "Whether it's a bonfire or yard
work, it is our responsibility to be good stew-
ards as we recreate and be careful with fire
outdoors."
In the fall and winter months, cold fronts


Our Viewpoint
move through the state and dry out vegeta-
tion. As a result, the underbrush is extremely
vulnerable to wildfire.
Late November saw freezing temperatures
reach from the Panhandle down into parts of
central Florida.
These freezing temperatures dry out the
grasses and small brush making them more
likely to catch on fire.
Relative humidity below 35 percent, lack of
rainfall for two weeks or longer and strong
dry winds are all components that create
extreme fire danger.
Any fire that starts during these weather
conditions could get out of control and


spread quickly.
Fire officials are sending out warnings.
Among their suggestions:
Don't toss lit cigarettes. It's illegal to
throw butts from a vehicle anytime. It's
particularly stupid now.
Clear flammable vegetation around your
home. Keep a zone of 2-3 feet.
Clean pine needles and leaves from the
roof and gutters.
Don't leave piles of dead yard waste,
bush and tree branches in lots.
Make sure home smoke alarms are
working. (Actually, that's always smart.) It's
the same drill every year. Wise to pay atten-
tion, just in case. For more tips, go to www.
floridaforestservice.com.


Letters to the editor


Casino idea is bad idea


I recently heard that a casino was
being considered for the Grand Hotel in
Lake Wales. I was born in Detroit, and
lived in the suburbs most of my life.
We currently live in Troy, Mich., just
14 miles north of downtown Detroit
where three casinos are now located.
As most people know, Detroit has
continued to slide downhill, and more
people are moving out than moving
into the city. Casinos were presented
to the City Council, and subsequently
to the citizens as a cure all for the cash
problems of the city, and the schools.
Detroit, and the school system


continues to deteriorate.
Only the casino owners reap any real
gain. Yes, the city and the school system
have received some money, but nothing
like what was promised. A few years
ago the Detroit News/Free Press ran an
article about the casino's attendance,
their gross proceeds, and other informa-
tion related to the Detroit area gambling
business. At that time, the net loss per
casino attendee was about $87 per day.
Do the citizens of Lake Wales really want
this kind of business in their city?
Paul Clark
Lake Wales


Look for reasons for violence


I pray for the survivors of the victims of
the horrendous killings in Connecticut. No
words, regardless of how eloquent or good
intentioned can bring back their loved ones
that died because an obviously deranged
perpetrator of these senseless murders.
Many voices will rise once again claim-
ing and demanding for a strict control of
firearms. As far as I remember, I owned at
one time or another rifles, shotguns, and
handguns, but it never crossed my mind to
aim one at any of my fellow human beings.
You may want to know my reason for having
a gun that could cause harm or even death.
I can enumerate some of them here: I like
target shooting, and even knowing that
some of my friends don't like it, hunting. One
very personal reason is that I like to have
weapons for self-defense. Yes, self-defense...

REASONS
FROM PAGE 4

remember reading in the Bible that Cain
killed his brother Abel with no reason-
able justification. Why did he do that? I
don't know. I learned Cain did not use a
firearm. Is it possible that from the very
beginning of time violence was in hu-
man minds? I do not have any answer...
I don't know.
I believe it is time to pinpoint the
reasons for these current common
tragedies.
On a daily basis, the printed or tele-
vised media makes a point to inform all
of us in a detailed form of any incidence
involved in firearm killings. It permeates
our minds to the point that even though
we condemn these actions we accept
them as a common occurrence in their
lives.
Why is that? I don't know and I leave
it for the psychologists to answer that


question. One thing games to mind. The
cinematographic industry is 'regulated'
and their movies are categorized for the
audience that could watch the product.
Some afb for'general' audience and
some are'restricted' by ages because
of the super violent and/or almost
pornographic scenes or contents within
that production. (With parent ap-
proval some children can watch scenes
showing some violence up to a certain
degree).
What about the television programs
and episodes aired every day and night?
I accept that some are not as graphic
as the restricted movies but the mean-
ing is the same: violence and killings
are normal as breathing and we must
'accept' that as a fact of life.
Can we believe that it could and/or
would feed the sick mind of a deranged
person? I am not a'shrink' and I can't
offer a professional answer to that but I
believe it could. A mentally sick person
watching those violent movies/pro-
grams might tell him/her self: oh my,


that's nothing ... I could do better than
that. Could that be true? Maybe that is
very possible.
And, how about our young children?
From a very tender age they are unfor-
tunately subject to the indoctrination
that violence is part of our 'normal' life
and daily routine. Did you ever watch
some of the 'games' our'kids' play
on their television sets? Even though
there are regulations and approved age
for those 'games' I personally believe
parents should and must read their
contents and approve them before their
young ones can play them. Some are
violent, gory, and very graphic.
These are a lot of things that can,
should and must be done to control
the present violence. I do not believe
that 'weaponry' control is the absolute
answer to the problem. For starters we
can stop publishing, describing and
glorifying violence in any form by our
general media.

confidence in their ability.
We thank our law enforcement part-
ners throughout the county and in each
municipality. We take our emergency
management guidance and procedures
from them. Officers will remain active
in our schools given the recent events in
Connecticut. Their continued support
and expertise is of vital importance.
We will continue to mourn the loss of
these beautiful young students and their
brave instructional leaders but we will
persevere. Hope springs eternal even in
the darkest days. God bless the Sandy
Hook community as well as everyone
in the educational community in our
country.

Events to honor MLK set


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

The judges at this year's Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. breakfast went through
2,600 essays to find three winners.
That's 300 more than they had to go
through last year.
Winners will be announced at the
annual event on Wednesday, Jan. 9 at
the Bartow Civic Center. First, second
and third place awards will be award-
ed to students in kindergarten through
fifth grade, middle school and high
school. The essays are on "Building the
Dream, Living the Dream."
Winners in each category will read
their essays.
The rise in number of the essays
may help in that organizer Dale
Terrell feels we've come a long way
in reaching equality, though there is
still a way to go until we reach it in
this country. He said if you look at the
leadership both nationally and locally
that can be seen.
Some examples he used of mi-
norities in leadership positions are
President Obama, Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton, Supreme Court
Justice Sonia Sotomayor, former
Secretary of State Condoleezza
Rice, former Secretary of State
Colin Powell and Florida Lieutenant
Governor Jennifer Carroll on the
national and state level. Locally,
he cited current School Board
Chairman Hazel Sellers, Polk County
Commission Chairman Melony Bell,
Lakeland Mayor Gow Fields, Deric
Feacher, the elected city manager in


Winter Haven
and Bartow
Mayor Leo
Longworth.
And, while the
names are many,
he pointed out
these people are.
not just doing the




that anyone is as
good as anyone
else, something that was not always
viewed as true.
"They're doing superior jobs and
for what it's worth and what they have
taken on they have done a tremen-
dous jobs with their resources."
He added, "The color is it, but what
you bring with your heart... that's
what's important."
He said, though, there are still
some places where we have to work
together to resolve differences that
continue to separate the different
races and sexes.
"It's going to take all of us to make
that right. We all have to work togeth-
er to make the United States strong."
The event, which will starts at
8 a.m. at the civic center, 2250 S.
Floral Ave., Bartow, not only has
become a staple of an event but has
gotten bigger in attendance each year.
The doors open at 7 a.m.
"Attendance has increased every
year," said organizer Dale Terrell.

a spot. People can also call 863-

Children testify in trial over Bea Dickey's killing


By JOHN BARRY
TAMPA BAY TIMES

TAMPA Only days before
Christmas, three children of a blended
Plant City family marched to the
witness stand to describe the violent
death last year that blew up their lives.
"I heard three whacks," said Lawson
Dickey, then 12.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys
agree that Lawson had just heard his
father, Lawrence Dickey, 46, fatally
clubbing his wife Beatrice, Lawson's
stepmother.
Lawrence Dickey is on trial this week
for first-degree premeditated murder.
Dickey has admitted to beating his
wife, a top aide to Polk County Sheriff
Grady Judd, with an aluminum base-
ball bat. But in opening statements

argued that the attack wasn't premedi-
tated. "It falls somewhere between
accidental and deliberate," he said.
Whatever it was, the children de-
scribed a horror.
The couple had returned home
from a Journey concert on the night
of Sept. 17, 2011. Both were drunk,
according to testimony.
Lawrence Dickey had called a fellow
Walmart loss prevention officer from
the concert to say that Beatrice was
upset with him "for acting like a fool."
He had fallen in mud.
When the Dickeys later got home,
Beatrice went into the bedroom of
her 16-year-old stepdaughter, Taylor
Dickey.
"We were best friends," Taylor
testified.
Taylor said her stepmother was irri-
tated that Lawrence was drunk, saying

"she would try to control him."
SAt the time, Lawrence Dickey was
in the living room talking to his
son, Lawson, sleeping on the couch.
Lawson said his father spoke senti-
mentally about the boy's biological
mother, calling her an angel. "She'll
guide you through everything," the
father promised.
Lawson said Dickey then went
into the garage, retrieved a bat, and
headed for the bedroom.
After the attack, the children said
they heard the sound of screeching
tires as Dickey drove away. He drove
directly to a Plant City police substa-
tion and turned himself in.
A third child, Dillon Kirkland,
Beatrice Dickey's son, testified
Tuesday. He said after Taylor found
her stepmother's body, he called 911.

a grassroots organization when we
pursue a collective effort."
He continued, "They make Farm

real bad."

Few transportation projects next

five years this part of county
Most projects in Lakeland, or northern Polk County


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
As far as residents from Bartow down to
Lake Wales, as well as in Fort Meade and
Frostproof may be concerned, few road
projects are going to have a direct impact
upon them for the next five years, from
fiscal years 2014-2018; this according to
the Dec. 12 public hearing the Florida
Department of Transportation District
One held at the Central Florida Regional
Planning Council's meeting.
The meeting, attended by representa-
tives and board members of the CFRPC
from DeSoto, Hardee, Highlands and
Okeechobee counties, viewed a PowerPoint
presentation. Learned from the presenta-
tion (for the project titled Map 21 Highway
Funding) is that Florida will receive $1.8
billion in FY2013 (which translates to 93
percent of the Highway Trust Fund tax
the state made). District One is scheduled
to receive $463.5 million this year. Also
revealed was that Map 21 extends current
highway user tax through to Sept. 30, 2016.
While much of the presentation gave
an overall view, several of the projects
slated for Polk County will occur in the
northern part of the county, many of them
in Lakeland. Closer to home, there will
be a bike path trail from Peace River Trail,
from Mount Pisgah Road to U.S. 98 in Fort
Meade. Construction is slated for start and
completion during FY2014-2015.
However, in a printout, the following
projects are scheduled (or may already be
under way):.

Lightning strike repair


project underway at


Bok Tower


Work is underway to repair one of the
eight Georgian marble heron statues
atop the historic "Singing Tower" at Bok
Tower Gardens, which was struck by
lightning in August of 2011. The Gardens
received assistance from the State of
Florida, Division of Historical Resources
to help fund the repair project.
The bolt of lightning struck the
205-foot-tall carillon tower and severed
the head of the 14-foot-tall marble
heron on the NNW face on the Tower's
top perimeter. While the head was not
dislodged, the crack that resulted from
the strike cut completely through the
neck of the heron. Temporary measures
to secure the heron head in place were
taken immediately by bracing and strap-
ping the head down to the steel beam
below. The head weighs an estimated
2,000 pounds.
Scaffolding has been erected around
all sides of the damaged heron, and
stone masons will shift the marble head
/4-inch back into alignment, clean
out debris, install steel support pins,
and use epoxy to put the pieces back
together.
"We believe the electrical charge that
damaged the heron didn't come from
a direct strike, but instead traveled up
from the tower's steel structure through
a 12-foot-tall steel support column that
runs through the center of each statue,"
said Christopher Lutton, Director of
Facilities for Bok Tower Gardens. "It
wasn't dissipating properly, so all that
energy took the path of least resistance
through the neck of the heron, which is


the narrowest part of the statue."
The damage to the Georgian marble
heron is nearly identical to that which
occurred in 1999 when lightning struck
another heron atop the Tower, then
again in 2008. Prior to 1999, the Tower
had only one other documented dam-
aging strike, not long after its opening,
in 1930.
"In addition to the heron repairs,
work also includes installation of new
ground rings, ground rods, and cable
connectors that will help prevent
similar lightning damage in the future,"
Lutton said.
Shortly after the 1999 repair work
on the heron, a lightning engineer and
contractor installed a new system of
grounding and lightning protection.
However, it was discovered that installa-
tion had not included a critical connec-
tor cable between the structural column
in the center of each heron sculpture
and the down connector pole. A large
charge potential was being created at
the tip of this structural steel, arcing
directly to the lightning rod.
Lightning protection will involve
installing ground rings and ground rods
with copper leads to connect the Tower-
top lightning protection system to the
earth. The scope of work also involves
drilling holes into each of the eight
herons through to the steel I-beams and
connecting a class II copper lightning
conductor from the down connector to
this beam, allowing for energy build-up
to be vented to the outside to prevent
further damage to the sculptures.

Library starts 'artist of the month' series



Tamira J. Pickett-Steele is first to be featured


By JAMES COULTER
CORRESPONDENT
A curious fawn stares into the
morning sunlight shining through the
forest glen like a light peering through
a tunnel.
A grim scarecrow watches over a
crisp autumn cornfield, basking in the
light of the harvest moon as it peers
over the distant farmhouse.
A hunter and his dog huddle within
their bright red pickup truck with a
Christmas wreath strapped to the hood
as snow descends around it within the
wintry woods.
These are a few of the dozen paint-
ings that can be viewed at the Latt
Maxcy Memorial Library in Frostproof
throughout the month of December.
The library recently started its "Artist
of the Month" exhibit, where every
month it will host the art of a local
artist. This month features the oil
and watercolor paintings of Tafnira J.
Pickett-Steele.
Though her paintings appear to dis-
play the experience of an artist who has
painted all her life, Pickett-Steele has
only been painting for the past year.
She started painting as a way to cope
with the problems of the world and
within her own life.
"We're in a very chaotic world,"
Pickett-Steele said. "I paint to get away
from this chaos, and to offer a little bit
of beauty back into the evils."
Through her painting, she not only
escapes the chaos around her, but finds
a way to bring order to it.
"Because when I'm painting, I can
escape from my own reality," she
said. "If you have your brushes and a
blank canvas, you can make the world
anything you want it to be on there."
Pickett-Steele taught herself how to
paint with help from family, friends,
and instructional painting shows
on television, especially those on
CreateTV
Within the past year, she has cre-
ated more than 100 paintings, mostly
landscapes and wildlife.
Despite the intrinsic detail within her
art, she claims to rarely use any refer-
ences, and that everything she paints
stems from her own imagination.
"Those are places in my mind
that no man has defiled yet with
his existence," she said. "It's just
like I've gone into a solitary world
right there where it's just a place
in someone's mind where you can
go and there's a beautiful place to


be and nothing bad has happened
there yet."
She describes her process as "mental
chaos," that while she may begin with
one idea for a painting, when she is
finished, she may end with something
completely different.
"I just take a blank piece of paper,
and whatever I start with, it might not
be anything I had expected it to be, and
somewhere along the composition, all
this other stuff happens and then you
have a completely different product
than what you meant to have," she
said.
Of all the paintings she has created,
not a single one is her favorite, as she
considers each and every one an exten-
sion of her own soul.
"And parting with them is almost
hard because it's like a piece of your
heart goes away, and it's like this is a
tiny chunk of my soul that you bought
for dollars," she said.
Pickett-Steele was born in
Davenport, Iowa, where she attended
West High but did not graduate, later
receiving her GED along with two years
of nursing at Polk State College.
She spent 30 years in what she
described as a boring office job before
later becoming a supervisor at Water's
Edge of Lake Wales.
She has since dedicated her life to
her art, her four children, two grand-
children, and her husband of one year
Gregory Steele.
One of her biggest challenges starting
out was having her husband adjust to
her new lifestyle as an artist.
"At first, it seemed as though he
wasn't going to do very well with me
painting," she said. "But he's not only
accepted the fact that I have to paint,
and that he has to come home to a
mess once in a while and dinner's going
to be late, but he actually jumps in and
gives me a helping hand."
Her husband has shown his full
support for her endeavor and has done
everything he can to assist her, from
buying and building frames, setting
up her website, making sure their dog
and cat are out of her way, expecting
little from her while she is busy paint-
ing, and even helping her name her
pictures.
He has even painted his own picture,
though only reluctantly at the request
of his wife, and he admits that his art
does not compare to hers.
He claims that the best part of his
wife's artwork is being able to see the
final product after hours of painting.

Tamira J. Pickett-Steele is the Latt Maxcy Memorial Library artist of the month.


"Watching a blank canvas come to
life, seeing something she has created
with her hands, sometimes I'll come
home from work and I'll see it hanging
on the wall drying and I'll go 'wow!'" he
said.


Tamira Pickett-Steele will have her
art on display at the library until Jan. -1.
Her art can be viewed and purchased

For the most part, because turkey is
OK to feed either dogs or cats, should
either animal eat some turkey, danger
to them is minimal; of course, just as
it is with chicken, eating turkey bones
is a no-no. The same with fish. Fish
bones can puncture intestines.

day for dogs is not Thanksgiving or
Christmas, it's the Fourth of July,"
said Dwaine Smith, owner of Bartow
Animal Care Hospital. "Guys fire up
the grill, cooking ribs, see the dog
looking at them, feel sorry and give
the dog some ribs. The result is, diar-
rhea. Dogs cannot handle pork."
This year, said-Smith, there has only
been one incident where a pet had to
be brought to the clinic after eating
ham.
"It got into the garbage," he said.
According to Amanda Blaylock, a
veterinarian technician at Parkway
Veterinary Energy Clinic on U.S. 98 in
Lakeland, it was the same.
"We always see a few more cases
over the Thanksgiving holiday, but not
a noticeable number," Blaylock said.
The cause, quite often, is because
dogs and cats are eating something
they are not used to having, particu-
larly foods that are rich, or sweets.
This can bring about a condition
known as pancreatitis. "It's very pain-
ful, and the symptoms can include
bloody diarrhea and dehydration."
However, when it comes to the
holidays and pets getting sick, one
of the biggest dangers may not come
from poinsettias, mistletoe and holly.
It might come from Christmas trees.
Yes, there is a concern about ingested
pine needles, but the biggest concern
might not be the needles.


"It's ticks on the bark," said Smith.
Since many Christmas trees come
from either Michigan or North
Carolina, the ticks are in a dormant
state due to the cold weather.
However, when the trees arrive in
Florida and are set outside, the warm
weather "awakens" the ticks. "The
sellers are supposed to treat the trees
before being bought, but that does
not always take place," said Smith. As
a result, the ticks then bite both pets
and humans.

TREE
FROM PAGE 20

"Often, they will climb walls,"
Smith said. "If they get into the ceil-
ing, they will build a nest." Should that
happen, it becomes necessary to call a
pest control expert, and that can cost
upwards to several hundred dollars.
The problem is not limited only to


the home. After the holiday season
is -over and homeowners toss the
tree, the ticks remaining on the tree
now are outdoors and can spread to
neighboring properties.
No pun intended, but people with
pets are not "out of the woods" yet.
There are other concerns owners need
to be aware.
"People who wrap delicacies need
to be aware that dogs will sniff it out
those packages and open them," said
Blaylock. Those delicacies include (but
not limited to) chocolates, and certain
types of nuts, such as macadamia,
walnuts and pecans. "If you have a
cat, the main thing to be aware of are
electrical cords and tinsel on trees."
Poisonous (?) Christmas plants
By now, it is common knowledge
for many pet owners: live Christmas
plants are not safe to have in the
home. According to information on
About.com, the level of toxicity may
vary based upon the size and breed.
For example, poinsettias often are
either irritating or mildly toxic to a
pet, usually inducing either nausea or
vomiting. Rarely is poisoning severe,
which is an urban myth, according to
the web site.
However, reaction to mistletoe and/
or holly can range from moderate
to severe. Additionally, holly berries
can bring about tremors or seizures,
especially in cats.


But what about Christmas trees,
other than concerns about ticks?
Those can be mildly toxic, due in part
to fir tree oils. Those can be irritating
to the mouth and stomach, causing
excessive drooling or vomiting. Tree
needles are not easily digested either;
possibly causing GI irritation, vomit-
ing, gastrointestinal obstruction or
puncture.


The best decision to do, counsel
veterinarians, is not bring any live
plants into the home. But if you are
adamant about having real plants
rather than plastic reproduction,
the best thing to do is to monitor
your pet's interest in eating plants,
and place plants out of reach. Check
plants for any signs of chewing or
missing leaves.

FEEL


the benefits of light meals


Who doesn't love to eat? Of course,
most of us do. However, depending
on the choices we make, food can be
harmful or health-boosting. Even in
our fast-paced age of electronic push-
buttons and instant results, we must
accept the fact that certain aspects of
life cannot be condensed into a pill or a
click of a mouse.
Preparing nutritious meals is a
necessary part of living if we expect to
enjoy good health. And come to think
about it: what is more fun, cooking up
a scrumptious pot of soup, or spending
time in hospital surgery and rehab units
in pain?
Much has been written in this column
about the importance of eating a
healthy diet rich in fresh vegetables,
fruit, nuts, seeds, beans, whole grains
and beneficial fats. This includes break-
fast, lunch, and dinner. An important
component of a healthy eating strategy
is the avoidance of eating 2 large meals
per day (lunch and dinner). Consuming
two main meals daily is a prescription
for overeating, with all its detrimental
consequences. One of the two should
consist of lighter fare. The role of such a
meal cannot be overstated.
Delicious, scaled down meals can
be made with a minimum of effort. A
fresh raw vegetable salad should be the
centerpiece of a light meal. It can be
served with whole-grain roasted bread
or pita and a hearty homemade soup; or
a salad paired with a whole-grain pilaf;
or a fabulously delicious sandwich, of
multi-grain bread, stacked with a slice
of sweet onion, lettuce, cranberry sauce
and turkey or quality cheese (not the
imitation-plastic-cheese- slices variety).
A whole-grain pasta salad accompanied
with a veggie salad or soup is another
option.
These and countless other tempting
dishes can be altered on different days
to prevent monotony and increase nu-
tritional intake: You can add or change
herbs, sauces, toppings, dressings,
vegetable combinations, and so forth.
Most of these dishes can also be taken


to work. Advance cooking of larger
batches of whole-grains, beans, soups,
and pasta, or washing additional salad
veggies for later use, saves time.
Light meals are particularly important
during holidays and other times of
celebration. Going hungry to a party
spells trouble ... Instead, eat a light and
healthful meal before you go. This will
help prevent stuffing yourself at the fes-
tivity and sledge-hammering your effort
to live healthier. Remember: unhealthy
eating and/or overeating are optional...

First da Vinci gallbladder removal performed


On Dec. 3, Dr. Rafael Quinones
and Bartow Regional Medical Center
performed the first da Vinci robot-
ically-assisted single-site gallblad-
der removal in Polk, Hardee, and
Highlands counties.
"Our commitment to deliver cut-
ting edge technology to our com-
munity is evidenced by Dr. Quinones
being the first to deliver single
incision gallbladder removal with
the da Vinci surgical system," said
Troy DeDecker, hospital CEO.
The surgery uses the da Vinci ro-
botic system through a 2.5-centime-
ter single incision hidden by the belly
button, allowing for better cosmesis,
less pain, and quicker recovery.


Bartow Regional and Rafael
Quinones are the first facility and
surgeon to offer this approach to
patients for gallbladder removal in
the area.
"In my practice, patients with
gallbladder issues and pain are
quite common," said Quinones.
"Laparoscopic cholecystectomies
are one of the most common
surgeries performed by general
surgeons. Today, we have an im-
proved way to perform these sur-
geries. My patients have less pain
and, cosmetically, the incision is
almost unnoticeable. As a surgeon
operating on the robotic console, I
benefit from incredible vision and


dissection abilities, which enhance
my precision."
The da Vinci surgical system
integrates robotic technology to
virtually extend the surgeon's eyes
and hands. Using the system, the
surgeon operates while seated at a
console viewing a 3-D image of the
surgical area. The system mimics the
surgeon's hand movements in real
time, in a smaller scale, within the
operating site in the patient's body.
This allows the surgeon better range
of motion and the ability to see the
operative field in far greater detail.
Each year, about 1 million people
in the United States will undergo
gallbladder removal surgery. Of that


number, 40 percent of these patients
are women 18 to 44.

Go dark and lighten your mood


Want to lighten your mood at night?
Go dark.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins University
say routine exposure to bright light at night
may increase the risk of depression and
learning issues. Or at least it does in mice.
"Basically, what we found is that chronic
exposure to bright light even the kind
of light you experience in your own living
room at home or in the workplace at night
if you are a shift worker elevates levels
of a certain stress hormone (cortisol) in
the body, which results in depression and
lowers cognitive function," said biology
professor Samer Hattar.
Using mice, Hattar and colleagues
showed how special cells in the eye called
intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion
cells (ipRGCs) are activated by bright
light, affecting the brain's center for mood,
memory and learning.
"Mice and humans are actually very
much alike in many ways, and one is that
they have these ipRGCs in their eyes, which
affect them the same way."
Of course, you can't ask a mouse how
it feels, but the researchers said mice

exposed to excessive bright lights at night
displayed increased "depression-like be-
haviors," such as a lack of interest in sugar
or pleasure-seeking. They also performed
less well on learning tasks.
The researchers think something similar
might happen with people.
"I'm not saying we have to sit in
complete darkness at night," Hattar
said, "but I do recommend that we
should switch on fewer lamps and stick
to less-intense light bulbs. Basically,
only use what you need to see."
Body of Knowledge
Over the course of an hour, the average
human sheds 600,000 particles of skin. In
a year, that adds up to about 1.5 pounds
roughly the weight of an iPad.

Bartow Regional
hosts MAKOplasty
Seminar Wednesday
On Dec. 19 Bartow Regional
Medical Center has seminar on
MAKOplasty robotic surgery by Dr.
Maury Fisher.
Fisher is scheduled to speak about
this breakthrough in orthopedic care.
The seminar is from 6-8 p.m. in
Classrooms 1 and 2 at the hospital,
2200 Osprey Blvd., Bartow. Space
is limited. Call 1-800-862-5926 to

LWMC earns accreditation
Lake Wales Medical Center was
awarded a three-year term of accredi-
tation in magnetic resonance imaging


from a recent review by the American
College of Radiology.
MRI is a noninvasive medical test
that utilizes magnetic fields to pro-
duce anatomical images of internal
body parts to help physicians diag-
nose and treat medical conditions.
The ACR gold seal of accredita-
tion represents the highest level of
image quality and patient safety. It
is awarded only to facilities meet-
ing ACR Practice Guidelines and
Technical Standards after a peer-
review evaluation by board-certified
physicians and medical physicists
who are experts in the field.
Image quality, personnel qualifica-
tions, adequacy of facility equip-
ment, quality control procedures,
and quality assurance programs are
assessed. The findings are reported to
the ACR Committee on Accreditation,
which subsequently provides the
practice with a comprehensive report
they can use for continuous practice
improvement.

Readers describe varied effects from multivitamins


DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: I used a variety of multivita-
min brands. They all gave me a pain
in the stomach. I take the vitamins
separately and have no trouble. E.D.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: Whenever I take a multivita-
min, I feel nauseated. What's wrong
with me? J.D.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: I get dizzy after taking a
multivitamin. When I don't take one,
I'm fine. B.L
ANSWER: Most multivitamin users
have no problems with them. Some,
however, do. I'm not sure why. It might
be that a few people react to the filler
material in a vitamin, the things that
keep the pill or capsule together. The
only solution I have is for these people
to stop taking them.
A question frequently asked and
frequently answered with differing
opinions is the necessity of taking a
multivitamin. It wasn't until the early
part of the 20th century that the struc-
ture and manufacturing of vitamins
got its start. From the dawn of man's
appearance on Earth, no vitamins
were ever taken in pill form until
then. All those generations of people

lived well without them. In some
instances, vitamin deficiencies sprung
up, but the connection between the
deficiency and the lack of a vitamin
wasn't made until the 1900s. In the
18th century, James Lind fed British
sailors limes and lemons and thereby
prevented scurvy, a disease prevalent
in the British navy. He didn't know the
reason why these fruits were effective.
It wasn't until relatively recently that
scurvy proved to be a deficiency of
vitamin C.

Some people feel that taking a mul-
tivitamin ensures that they are getting
the recommended daily allowances
for vitamins. However, the average
American and Canadian has a variety
of foods available to them, all rich in
vitamins, and those foods are all they
need to stay healthy.
DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND
ROACH: My problem is nasal drainage.
It's constant during the day and has the
consistency of water. At night, it stops.
I have seen several ENT doctors and
been given nose drops to try, but they
didn't work for me. The only diagnosis
I was given: "This is a problem many
older women have." I had brain surgery
four years ago after an accident falling
down our stairs and hitting my head on
a wooden pole. I was in the hospital for
two months. Could this be related to
my draining nose? B.K.
ANSWER: A far-out possibility is
that your head injury has fostered a
leak of cerebrospinal fluid, the fluid
that drains over and within the brain
and over the spinal cord. Standing
and sitting encourage the leak. Lying
down pretty much abolishes it. This


fluid brings some nourishment to
brain cells, and it cushions the brain
and spinal cord. Cerebrospinal fluid
has sugar in it. Nasal mucus doesn't. If
the nasal drainage fluid tests positive
for sugar, that's evidence that the fluid
might be cerebrospinal fluid. This
isn't the most sophisticated test, but it
does provide enough information to
warrant a search for a leak.
A more common cause of a runny
nose not due to allergies is vasomotor
rhinitis. Astelin nasal spray works well
for this condition. If you haven't tried it,
it might work. It requires a prescription.
That's good. While you're at the doc-
tor's, you can ask him or her if you can
be tested for cerebrospinal fluid leak.
Drs. Donohue and Roach regret that
they are unable to answer individual
letters, but will incorporate them in
the column whenever possible. Readers
may write the doctors or request an or-
der form of available health newsletters

How do I know if I am ready to buy a home?


You're tired of living in your parent's home
crammed in there with your wife, kids, dog, grandma
etc; then you know you want a place of your own.
Seriously, if you have had a steady income for at least
two years, some good credit history such as credit
cards, car loans, utility bills etc with the payments
current and paid on time and ideally a savings of at
least $3,000 $5,000 to use towards closing costs and
or down payment. Then chances are you are ready.
2. How do I begin the process of buying a home?
First thing,
call your Michelle Hutto
local Real-
tor they
can help
you get pre- [
approved
and set you
up on an Keystone Real Estate, Inc.
automated
search that
can show you dozens of homes that may fit your cri-
teria. You need to show a paper trail of your income
verification, so save at least the last two months of
paystubs, two years of income tax returns, if you are
self-employed you may have to provide company tax
returns, a driver's license or other identification along
with your social security card. In some cases if you
recently were divorced you'll need to provide your di-
vorce decree. If you have any paid bills not yet show-
ing paid on your credit report, it'll be best to have
proof of payment. Biggest process is to save, save,
save your money and keep your bills paid current.
3. How does purchasing a home compare with
renting? Purchasing a home you get it all. The nice
house to set up how you want; if you want a pink
bedroom then so be it; no one is stopping you. The
money you invest into the property hopefully is equity
you are building and if you decide to sell the house

on almost an acre of land, recently was listed and sold by Michelle Hutto, Broker, Keystone Realty Inc


for $59,900.
you can regain what you put into the house. In some
cases, make money, by gaining a return on your in-
vestment. Renting, on the other hand, the money you
put into the place including the rent payment doesn't
come back to you. On the positive side, you don't
have to pay mortgage interest or property taxes either.
Renting a home maybe less expensive than purchas-


ing a home, especially if you are single and renting
only a single bedroom unit or if you are more com-
fortable living in an apartment while letting mainte-
nance handle repairs and mowing the grass. Here at
Keystone Realty, we can help you find either, a home
for purchase or a home for rent.
