The


Hall induction is'shining moment


Doug Wise among three to be honored Feb. 9


By JAMES COULTER
NE %S CORRESPONDENT
When Doug Wise helped initiate
the Frostproof Athletic Hall of Fame
eight years ago, he never imagined
he would one day be inducted into
it.
"It's a shining moment," Wise said.
Wise is one of three former
Frostproof athletes who will be
inducted into this year's hall of fame
at the Seventh Annual Hall of Fame
Gala on Feb 9.
The gala is being held by
Frostproof Bulldog Boosters, Inc.,
a coalition of school staff, parents,
and local residents to help support
the Frostproof Middle Senior High
School athletic program.
Wise was on the board of direc-
tors when the Boosters program
started eight years ago. Since then,
he has volunteered countless hours
into the program and its many
fundraisers.
Born May 3, 1950. Wise has been


involved in sports all his life, start-
ing with Little League baseball at
age 6.
In high school, graduating in 1968,
he played center on the football
team and catcher on the baseball
team. He was named All-Conference
. football for two years, and earned
Most Valuable Lineman honors as
well as all-state accolades. He was
All Conference baseball his senior
year, and was also active with the
FFA.
After graduating high school in
1968, Wise would spend two years in
Polk State College and South Florida
Community before working in his
family's agriculture business.
Though he never played sports
in college, he did play competitive
softball for several years after high
school. In 1982, he joined the local
volunteer fire department. And, his
"Boston butts" are always barbecued
to perfection. Wise is a regular at
fundraising events in and around

Free lunch if you know where to look


By GEORGE FANICEVICH N
NEWS CORRESPONDENT


If you're in your 60s, all your life
you've heard there's no such thing as a'
"free lunch."
More often than not the suspicion
was justified, because getting the one
usually meant sitting through some
1igh-pressured sales pitch for every-
thing from financial consultations to
time-shares.
Back in 1994 Joyce Albritton learned,
contrary to popular belief, that there
was such a thing as a free lunch. She
then spent the next 16 years helping
other seniors learn that there is such a
treat and a whole lot more if you know
where to look.
Albritton retired Jan. 4 from her
position as the manager of Frostproof
Fellowship Dining. The following
Monday Albritton returned to the
Fellowship Dining Center as a client,
under the direction of interim manager
Karen Ferman.


PHOTO BY K.M. THORNTON SR.
Not only is providing a great lunch an impor-
tant part of the Fellowship Dining experience,
so too is just getting a chance to have some fun
with friends, whether it be a game of cards or a
friendly chat.
...................................!. .....................
"I've been busy filling Joyce's shoes,"
Ferman said. "Having her back even as
a client makes my job easier."
When asked if she had anything she
wanted to say to our readers, Forman
responded, "Just tell them to come on


down and say hello!"
Frostproof Fellowship Dining is a
Polk County program operated under
the auspices of Elderly Services. The
program operates each weekday and
provides free hot meals to individuals
age 60 and older.
Meals are also provided to any
spouses and/or disabled children who
are living at home, regardless of age.
There are no income or asset require-
ments in regards to participation in this
program.
"You can participate in this program
even if you're a snowbird," stated Bobby
E. Warf, while having his application
filled out by Ferman. Warf, who's down
here for about three or four months,
advised, "When I'm home, I participate
in a dining program up there."
In addition to the meals, daily activi-
ties are offered to all who are able and
care to participate ranging from so-
cialization with the other members, to
LUNCH 5s


Albritton

happy to pass

on the cooking
By GEORGE FANICEVICH
NEWS CORRESPONDENT
Frostproof Fellowship Dining's newest
client, loyce Albrinon, for the last 14 years
has been the mainstay of Frostproof's
premier senior gathering place, also
known as Frostproof Fellowship Dining.
Confused?
The explanation is really quite
simple. On Jan. 4, Albritton, Frostproof
Fellowship Dining's beloved manager
retired from her position, took the week-
end off, and then returned the following
Monday, as a client
"I've already started missing the people
here," she said.
Her local roots ran deep long before
she got involved in helping make sure
local seniors got hot, nutritious meals

Local man arrested in 9th St. stabbing


A Frostproof man is facing a
charge of aggravated battery follow-
ing an alleged stabbing incident in
the city last week.
According to reports, Polk County
Sheriff's Office deputies responded
to 9th Street West and Overocker
Circle in Frostproof, on Tuesday,
Jan. 15, after a reported stabbing.
.According to a spokesperson,
Collis Morris, age 23, of 22 Monroe
Street, Frostproof, was charged with
aggravated battery with a deadly
weapon. He has a lengthy arrest
record, according to the Polk County
Jail website, including previous
charges of kidnapping and robbery.
Reports indicated that through
the investigation, it wag learned the
victim, 25-year-old Earl Chandler,
Queens Court, Frostproof, was walk-
ing eastbound on 9th Street West
when he heard someone walking


behind him.
When Chandler turned, police
said that Morris shouted at him,
then allegedly rushed toward him.
As Morris approached, there was a
physical altercation during which
Morris is believed to have pulled
a knife from his pocket stabbing
Chandler in the abdomen, the sher-
iff's department alleged. Morris then
left the area. Chandler was trans-
ported to Lakeland Regional Medical
Center where he was treated for
non-life threatening injuries.
Morris was later located at
910 Lake Reedy Blvd. South in
Frostproof where he was taken into
custody, according to law enforcers.
.Chandler told detectives he
believed the altercation was a result
of the two men being involved with
the same woman, police added.

VIEWPOINT


We can be a healthier Polk County


Nat West has a message for Polk County and
that message is ... shape up!
West is a retired executive with Winter Haven
Hospital who is also a force behind the program,
"Building a Healthier Polk," a three-year initia-
tive that seeks to reduce the obesity rate in the
county by October 2015.
Polk County has a higher obesity rate that the
rest of the state and West's group aims to do
something about it.
"We know the actual statistics of health in Polk
County," West told the Polk County Board of
County Commissioners recently. Obese adult Polk
County residents total 37.6 percent, compared
to the state average of 27.2 percent. West added
that and other figures came from four separate
assessments. "We have a long way to go."
The Building a Healthier Polk organization is
made up of several community partners brought
together by Polk Vision.
West had appeared before commissioners to


Florida's legislature has started its
committee meetings in advance of
the 2013 legislative session. The big
news out of Tallahassee so far has
been the Senate's desire for ethics
reform.
I am cautiously optimistic that
lawmakers will enact some reforms,
and I am particularly pleased
about the House's desire for cam-
paign finance reform, which I find
intriguing.
Several years ago, while serving
in the Senate, I tried to raise the
contribution limits for political cam-
paigns in Florida, which are among
the lowest nationally. I did not think
campaigns needed more money,
quite the contrary. I proposed higher
limits because I thought candidates
needed more control of their cam-
paigns, more responsibility for their
message and more focus on their
constituents instead of powerful
people in Tallahassee. Current efforts
to change campaign finance laws
cite transparency and accountability,
which are valid and laudable goals.
More importantly, though, is restor-
ing control and responsibility to
candidates and making them more
responsive to the people in their
districts rather than the leadership
of their chamber, the lobbyists with
,big money and the political parties,
which lately have been anointing the
primary winners.
When constituents and community
donors are the primary contributors,
candidates will be more accountable
to those they represent.


Our Viewpoint

introduce "Building a Healthier Polk." He was
also there, to receive a proclamation of support
from the county on the initiative.
"Obesity has been described as the fastest
growing public health problem in the United
States," said.West. "The Lakeland-Winter Haven
area has been deemed as the seventh fast-
est growing metropolitan service area in the
country."
Obesity contributes to the three major
causes of death: Diabetes, stroke and heart'
disease.
West called for an increase in leisure time
activities at low and/or no-cost facilities. He
pressed the county commission on the need for
neighborhoods to have complete sidewalks, bike
paths and parks. In the workforce, the strategy


are thousands of these committees.
So even though the contributions
and expenditures are public record;
good luck following the money
transfers from one to the other. The
result: less transparency and more
candidate interest in pleasing the
benefactors.
The committees known as 527s
can spend unlimited money in any
campaign as long as they do so
independently. That means they
cannot coordinate directly with the
campaign.
It would be naive to believe that
the consultants running these Super
PACS are not doing precisely what
the candidate or the campaign
is anticipating. With little way of
knowing which PAC is helping which
candidate, it is almost impossible-to
prove that coordination occurred.
Also, the PAC can cut one check


Paula Dockery
GThVlte


Under the current system, once
candidates raise the maximum $500
contributions from businesses and
individuals in their district, they
turn to the money machines in
Tallahassee.
Because the $500 limits apply to
them as well, the political players
employ various legal methods to
circumvent the limitation. They
"bundle" money by collecting
checks from numerous individuals
within an organization, handing
over $10,000 or so with a single
handshake.
Those with matters before the
Legislature, or legislators seeking
to lead their chamber or political
consultants seeking candidates as
clients can form numerous political
action committees (PACs), commit-
tees of continuous existence (CCEs.i
and other committees allowing inde-
pendent expenditures under section
527 of the federal tax code.
The most effective and legal use of
these committees is to move money
from one to another, disguising
original contributions while skirting
the $500 limit. In Florida alone, there


will be to increase by 5 percent positive employee
behavior.
We applaud West and the Building a Healthier
Polk group for their efforts and hope the com-
mission and other local governments get behind
the initiative.
What can local governments do?
Provide as much recreational opportunities as
local budgets will allow to their residents. Parks
where people can walk, tennis courts and basket-
ball courts where they can play and gyms where
they can work out.
As West would tell you, money spent on recre-
ation activities is money not spent on obesity-
related diseases.
The Building a Healthier Polk group meets the sec-
ond Tuesday of each month at 3:30 p.m., in Lakeland.
Want to attend? Call Colleen Mangan,
Community Health Improvement Planner
with the Polk County Health Department at
863-519-7900, ext. 11334.


covering a large media buy or a
consultant's activity that includes
the costs for numerous candidates
disguising how much each candidate
received. The result: A candidate
can hide behind the "independent"
nature of an inappropriate ad or
mail piece.
When the party gets involved, party
officials can offer nearly unlimited
services. More importantly, the fi-
nancial backing sends a strong signal
to donors that they should not sup-
port the opponent even in a primary
election. The result: candidates are
more concerned about pleasing the
party elites than their constituents.
So when a well respected organi-
zation that advocates for ethics in
government proposes a change to
campaign finance law that removes

He attributes his success in life to
the values and lessons he learned
from mentors such as his parents
and his coaches, including Jim Boyd,
George Jackson, and Farris Brannen.
"Having a good solid background,
a good Christian background, some
good mentors, and seeing at an early
age people giving commitments and
unselfishly giving back to the commu-
nity taught me great values." he said.
Being a third generation Frostproof

he had growing up has given Wise

contribution limits to a candidate's
campaign account, resist the urge
to dismiss it as allowing unlimited
political contributions. Our exist-
ing campaign finance law not only
allows that but also rewards it but
only to the politically connected and
dependent.
In the 2012 elections, three out of
every four dollars flowed through
political committees and not direct-
ly to individual campaign accounts. -
The Legislature should remove the
direct contribution limit, as several
other states have done, and limit or
eliminate the "outside" money.
Then, all candidates would
have the opportunity to raise the
money they need, and they would be


system and athletic program.
One of the ways he has given
back has been through coaching
Little League baseball for 18 years
and coaching Little League football
when it was still around.
But the main venue through
which he has contributed to the
athletic program has been through
the Frostproof Bulldogs Boosters,
which he considers a vital aspect of
the program.
"Boosters clubs are a great asset to
any school's athletic program, espe-
cially in today's time with cutbacks
in funding," he explained. "Without
a good booster program, an athletic
program cannot make it on its own."
Tickets for the event are $50 a

campaign. Most importantly, they
would rely less on special interests,
Tallahassee insiders and the politi-
cal establishment and more on the
community members they hope to
represent.
Perhaps the unlimited contribu-
tion limit could be a tradeoff for
agreeing not to take campaign com-
mittee money. It's time for an honest
discussion on the topic without the
reform-killing rhetoric.

"There are many seniors in our area
that would benefit from participation

Albritton noted. "Anything from they

may have heard about it, but may
not understand how the program

She rioted that the program's goals

"The idea of the program is to get

each weekday.
"I was born and raised in Frostproof,"
Albritton said. "It was here I met and
married my husband, Arthur. It was here
I enjoyed living and raising my family."
Two daughters, KellieWilbanks and
Debbie Brown, each of whom are married
still reside in the area.
"Mom was always a hard worker,"
Wilbanks noted. She spent 22 years at Latt
Maxcy's while also working for 20 of those
22 years at Citizens Bank and Trust. For a
period of time she was also helping out in
a doctor's office in Avon Park, thus work-
ingthree jobs, not leaving her much time
to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming
a nurse.
But that never stopped her from caring
and helping, which is what being a nurse
is all about.
"Mom was always there when someone
had a need, whether it be a neighbor or
fellow church member, or myself needing
someone to pick up my son from school
or baby-sit while I was working," Wilbanks
added.
As Albritton approached 60 years of
age, an opportunity presented itself that
would fulfill the spirit of her dream, if
not the dream itself. She was given the
chance to become part of an organization
whose mission it was to help people.


"Back around
1994", Albritton
said "through
Greenthumb, I
became as-
sociated with
Frostproof
Fellowship
Dining".
Greenthumb
(today known
as "Experience
Works" was an
organization that JOYCE ALBRITTON
offered job train-
ing and place-
ment to mature workers in various
area community service operations."
Two years later, the Frostproof
Fellowship Dining manager's posi-
tion became available. Albritton was
offered the position and accepted. For
the next 14 years, Albritton, with the
exception of an occasional volunteer,
functioned not only as the manager,
but also the cook, dishwasher, chauf-
feur, maintenance person, and meal
delivery support person, all while
handling inventory and receiving and
functioning as her own administrative
assistant.
"Joyce is more like family than
just an employee" added Ruth Stark
when she retired from the Maxcy
Corporation. "It is so like Joyce to give
everything a personal touch just to let
us know how much she cares for us.'

Rex Dimmig was sworn in as Public
Defender for the 10th Judicial Circuit
Jan. 15, staff and friends filling the Polk
History Center's historic courtroom.
He succeeds Marion Moorman, who
held the position for 28 years. Dimmig
said he chose Jan. 15 at 3:30 p.m. to
honor a significant event in the annals
of public defense; the case of Gideon vs.
Wainwright.
Dimmig noted in his speech that, "It
was on this day 50 years ago that the U.S.
:Supreme Court heard the oral arguments
in Gideon vs. Wainwright. Gideon had
been convicted in a trial without a lawyer
despite his request for one. In March of
1963 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that
Gideon should have been provided with
a lawyer for his trial. When Gideon was
retried with a lawyer, he was acquitted."
In response to this verdict, Florida cre-
ated its public defender system.
Moorman in his opening remarks
recalled another case, the first where
he saw Dimmig in action. At that time,
Moorman was with the prosecutors office
and Dimmig was the public defender, on a
case actually tried in the historic court-
room, back before the new courthouse
was constructed.
"Some of us here remember that this
courtroom didn't look this good then,"
he quipped. Becoming serious about
Dimmig's performance as a young-
attorney, though, Moorman said, "I was
treated to an example of trial craft that I
remember to this day. All day long, I had-
to be on my game, because this young
lawyer was doing a fantastic job."
Eventually, they ended up on the same


side. Moorman was elected to his post as
Public Defender and worked with Dimmig
until the young attorney went to the State
Attorney's Office, working under Jerry
Hill's predecessor, QuillianYancy.
"But in 1988, he came home to the
Public Defender's Office, where he has
been ever since," Moorman said.
He noted that Dimmig rose to the
position of administrative assistant public
defender and director. He noted that
Dimmig had lobbied statewide for reform
and for equitable funding for defense of
the indigent. In a brief interview before the
ceremony, Moorman said Dimmig was a
candidate for his former post whom he
felt he could unconditionally support.
Following Moorman's remarks, Dimmig
was sworm in by his adult children,
Heather, Travis, and Tyler, with his wife
Lois holding the Bible.
Dimmig noted that no one could
replace Moorman, but he.was proud to be
his successor.
He delivered a passionate speech in
defense of the indigent clients the Public
Defender's Office represents. He quoted
the Public Defender Creed first spoken by
Jim Doherty, Cook County Illinois Public
Defender. In part, it states, "My clients are
the indigent accused. They are the lonely,
the friendless. There is no one to speak for
them but me. My voice will be raised in
their defense. This will be my credo, this
and the Golden Rule."
Dimmig said "The largest mental health
receiving center is the Polk County Jail."
"The revolving door which our criminal
system has become must be stopped,"
Dimmig said. He also lamented the num-
ber of remedial courts that have prolifer-
ated, noting that judges are basically being
put in the role of social worker.

Taking a trip back 170 years


Public days for Alafia River Rendezvous this weekend


By STEVE STEINER
SS E[NER @'HEARrlANDNE% SP.kPERS.C)M

It was a trip to the past at the Bartow
Kiwanis weekly luncheon this past
Friday, Jan. 18. It was also a break from
the (recent) past, program-wise. Lately,
and often, programs center around
children and youth and education. If
not that topic, the subject matter is
often of a civic nature; in other words,
what people and organizations do and
are doing to improve the lives of Polk
County residents. Regardless, whatever
is presented at the Bartow Kiwanis
Club luncheon is always an opportu-
nity to learn something in a manner
informative and fun.
On behalf of the Florida
Frontiersmen Inc., Casey Fletcher, vice
president of finance for PallettOne,
as well as a member of the Kiwanis
Club, spoke on the 42nd Alafia River
Rendezvous' beginning with its storied
tradition. As the United States moved
westward in the early part of the
19th century, especially following the
Louisiana Purchase, fur and pelts were
a valued commodity in high demand
particularly in Europe.
"Free trappers and traders would
meet at a rendezvous that lasted two-
to-three weeks," explained Fletcher.
There they would buy and trade goods.
These rendezvous lasted nearly a
month because not all the trappers
could meet in a shorter period of time,
Fletcher explained. These rendezvous
lasted until the 1840s, when fur and
pelts mostly beaver fell out
of fashion in Europe. However, the
memory of these have been kept alive,
thanks to organizations such as the
Florida Frontiersmen.
The Alafia River Rendezvous (this
year's theme is "Howl at the Moon"),
is one of the largest ones held, said
Fletcher. He explained part of the rea-
son is because it takes place in Florida
during the winter, and as a rule, the
weather is mild. More than 1,500 adults
participate, coming in from all across
the U.S., and Canada.
"There are no strangers," said
Fletcher at the close of his brief presen-
tation. He then introduced Butch and .
Kathy Snider, along with Barbara Davis
and Mary Betts, who performed several
songs. Some of the songs were fun,
some were serious, and at least one was
of a mournful nature.

Want to go?
The 42nd Alafia River Rendezvous
will be open to the public on Friday
and Saturday, Jan. 25-26. From Bartow,
take U.S. 17, and turn right onto County
Road 640 (from Fort Meade, turn left).
Go approximately a quarter of a mile
toward Homeland and turn left onto
Azalea Avenue/Old Fort Meade Road.
The parking lot opens at 8 a.m., and
all guests will need to exit by 4 p.m.
Admission is $10 adults/$5 Seniors (age
60 and above), plus children ages 4-15/
children free under age 3.

What is/was a rendezvous
According to the Florida
Frontiersmen web site, a rendezvous
was a predetermined place and time
set for fur trappers to meet up with fur
traders. This kept the fur trappers from
having to come all the way back to
civilization to cash in their beaver pelts
(called plews, from the French word for

pelt) and other furs they had collected.
Usually the trappers (also known
as "mountain men" would spend
11.months of the year in the moun-
tains trapping beaver. Beaver was
in great demand because of its fur.
The fur was made into the felt for the
top hats that became popular in the
1790s.
Beaver fur was most desirable in
the winter. So the trapper-would
struggle through the Rocky Mountain
winter in order to trap them. With
winter's cold the trapper faced the
possibility of frostbite, bone numb-
ing cold, running into grizzly bears,
unfriendly indigenous tribes, or
illness. It was a fact that not many
greenhorns made it through the first
year.
To the fur trapper, rendezvous was
like our present day state fairs. It was
a great time to socialize with other
trappers and to find out what is going
on back home. It was also payday.
They would bring their furs and
trade them for necessities they would
need for the upcoming year. When
the trading was over it was time for
fun. There was singing, dancing, horse
races, foot races, target shooting, knife
throwing, gambling, whiskey drinking
and yam telling.

Perfection on the pitch; ready for districts


Humberto Alvardo steals this ball from a Ridge player
during high school action Friday in Frostproof. The Bull-
dogs will play in district competition this week with games
at Hardee.


Frostproof's Humberto Alvarado, left, teams up with
Federico Avellanada during action last Friday night at Faris
Brannen Stadium. It was the regular season finale for the
Bulldogs, who defeated Ridge Community, 5-0. Frostproof
ended the regular season 13-0-2, and avenged one of their
two ties on the season which came on the road earlier in
the season at Ridge. Alvarado had two goals in the win.


Right: Jose Espinoza works hard to keep control of the
ball during play last Friday as the Bulldogs hosted Ridge
Community on Senior Night. Frostproof won 5-0 to cap a
regular season of 13-0-2. Robert Aguillar had two goals in
the win, while Lamar Bobb also scored on an assist from
Espinoza. Eddie Gonzalez got the shutout in goal with four-
saves.

Magician bringing important message to kids, parents


Sometimes it's not always what you
say, but how you say it.
For Scott Humston, it's magic and
entertainment that gets across the
ideals of honesty, respect, self-esteem,
cooperation and responsibility.
He will be bringing his unique show
to Frostproof Jan. 24, and will entertain
at all three local schools.
At 9:30 a.m., he will present a show
at Ben Hill Griffin Elementary, and in
the afternoon he will make a stop at
Frostproof Elementary.
He will also have a special, free
evening community show for all parents
and kids at the Frostproof Middle
Senior High School starting at 6:30 p.m.
This is a different show from the two
he will perform earlier in the day, and
parents are encouraged to bring their
- children.
Humston has led an extraordinary
life. Overcoming a speech related birth
defect to become a full time speaker and
performer, Scott now devotes his life
to the art of motivating through enter-
tainment. Scott holds a BA. in com-
munication studies and dramatic arts.
He entertains, motivates and inspires
hundreds of audiences each year.
Scott has been performing in front of
audiences for more than 24 years, yet he


is only 39. He started performing magic
shows at the age of 13.
"I've always had a desire to inspire
people," says Scott. "I was born with
a birth-defect known as a cleft-palate.
Chances are that you, too, know some-
one with this 'defect'. I have had six
surgeries, years of speech classes, and
lots of braces! I overcame this 'defect'
in part because my parents, teachers,
pastors and others encouraged and
inspired me and taught me that I could
accomplish great things." ,
Every week Scott performs in front
of hundreds, sometimes thousands, of
people. But Scott's show is more than
just entertainment. It has a message
revealed in wit and warmth.
The ability to reach people is a life-
time dream for Scott. "God has granted
me the talent and devotion to spread
fun in a very creative way," Scott says.
He's been invited to perform his pro-
gram in hundreds of schools, churches,
and corporations. Those places include
Warner Brothers Records, Southwest
Airlines, Saddleback Church, and even
three shows for the White House.
He lives in Grand Island, Florida,
with his wife of 18 years, Debi, and four
amazing kids, Hannah, Abby, Nathaniel,
and Rachel.

Board nails down details for superintendent search


By MARYCANNADAY
MCANNADAY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Members of the Polk County School
Board have started to lay out the criteria
they say a new school superintendent
will have to meet.
The board met Friday morning with
Wayne Blanton of the Florida School
Board Association, who is conducting
the search for Polk's next superin-
tendent. Within a few hours they
nailed down crucial details to get the
search under way. They decided on a
salary range of $210,000 to $260,000;
a requirement of 10 years administra-
tive experience (with five of those in
senior management), a minimum of a
master's degree or equivalent pref-
erably a doctorate, and experience in
districts of 25,000 students or larger.
The search is under way due to the re-
tirement of Sherrie Nickel in November
2012 due to family health issues. Former
Polk superintendent John Stewart is
serving as interim superintendent.


Blanton told the board he hoped
to place the ad in Education Week
Magazine by Feb. 1, running it for six
consecutive issues. Blanton said that
publication is by far the most effec-
tive medium for drawing applicants.
To get the ball rolling, he needed
guidance on timelines, salary range
and qualifications. He also discussed
the process for the search and what it
would look like.
Dick Mullenax, in the salary discus-
sion, initially suggested a range of
$210,000 to $240,000, and Tim Harris
wanted to start the range at a lower
figure, but Debra Wright said, "I am
concerned about the $200,000 part.
I think we may eliminate some high-
quality candidates if we make the range'
too low." The board agreed.
Polk is a huge school district com-
pared to most, with 94,000 students.
"Eighty percent of school districts
nationwide have 5,000 students or
less, so the sheer size of Polk County
is startling to some candidates,"


Blanton noted. Withathis in mind,
one of the qualifications will be that
the candidates have experience in
districts with at least 25,000 students.
"People from smaller districts don't
understand that this is a totally dif-
ferent job in a large district," Board
chairperson Hazel Sellers noted.
The board discussed the types of
applicants that would be vetted and
whether to require candidates that
are sitting superintendents or former
superintendents, or to accept appli-
cations from deputy superintendents
as well as private sector executives.
Board member Lori Cunningham
said, "We want to be inclusive, not
exclusive. I would love to have a sit-
ting superintendent, but I know that
there are many excellent deputies out
there as well."
Wright agreed, saying, "I think we
should just throw the fishing pole in
the water and see what we catch."
Kay Harris cautioned, "I want to
make sure that whoever we get can


carry their weight."
The board is aiming for a July 1
start date for the new superinten-
dent, but there's some flexibility in
that. Blanton told the board that a
search generally takes four to six
months. An application cut-off date
of March 15 was set, allowing two to
three weeks to read resum6s and do
background searches, and by April 5,
Blanton said he could bring-the top
five to the board.
The board is making sure that the
public and community stakehold-
ers such as chambers of commerce
have a say in the selection, so they
plan a series of public "Meet and
Greet" gatherings as well as putting
a questionnaire online where people
.can indicate what they would like to
see in Polk's superintendent.
The group set aside April 29 to May
10 as a time to interview, show candi-
dates around the county, and to hold
public meetings, and hopes to make a
decision by mid-May to mid-June.


Southeastern University Head
Football Coach Keith Barefield
has announced the hiring of vet-
eran coach and Polk County native
Richard Marsh as the program's first
defensive coordinator.
Marsh comes to Southeastern after
serving as the head football coach at
Thomasville High School in Georgia
since 2005. Marsh led Thomasville to
seven Georgia High School Athletic
Association playoff appearances and
was named the Region Coach of the
Year in 2007.
"I am so blessed that the Lord
*has-called me to be part of Coach
Barefield's staff at SEU," said Nlarsh.
"I feel new and exciting opportuni-
'ties with kingdom building and com-
petition in championship college
football.awaits me at Southeastern."
Marsh's pedigree and ties to Polk
County run deep as he was a three-
year letterman at Barrow Senior High
School where he played for the late'
Paul Quinn, who was at the time
the winningest football coach in the
state of Florida. Marsh was a starting
linebacker on Bartow's 1986 team
which won the State Championship.
After high school, Marsh contin-
ued his football career at Ferrum
College where he played three years
under legendary coach Hank Norton,
who at the time was the winningest
active coach in NCAA III.
After his playing days were over,
Marsh returned to Florida to begin his
coaching career at Frostproof High
School in 1992. Marsh was on staff with
the 1992 State Championship team as


a linebackers coach. After that season,
legendary Frostproof Head Coach
Farris Brannnen decided to retire and
handpicked Marsh as his successor; a
position Marsh held until 1999.
Marsh returned home to Bartow
in 1999 where he served as the Head
Football Coach and Dean of Students
from 1999-2003. Marsh was named
The Ledger's Polk County Coach of
the Year in 2001.
"Wherever Richie Marsh has trav-
eled to be a part of a football pro-
gram, excellence and winning have
followed," said Barefield. "I expect
,the same here at Southeastern. I am
extremely excited to have Richie,
his wife, Jennifer, and the whole
Marsh family join our family here
,at SEU. When it comes to Christian
character, family values, work ethic,
and success, he fits the mold we
are searching for in a coach. Add to
those qualities the fact that he is a
Polk County native and established
his coaching reputation early in his
career at Frostproof and Bartow and
I am even more confident that we
have the right man for the job."
Marsh earned a bachelor's degree
in liberal studies from Ferrum
College in 1991 and his master's
degree from The University of South
Florida-Lakeland in educational
leadership in 2004. He and Jennifer
have five children.
Barefield and his staff have begun
recruiting for Southeastern with
plans to begin practice in the fall of
2013 and for the first game to take
place in the fall of 2014.

By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY @'HE ARL ANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
The Polk County school district
is looking toward the future and it's
goals, as they begin a process called
strategic planning.
The process, which will be done
over a six-month period, kicked off
with discussion of a new mission
statement. District officials sent out
a survey to school and district office
employees, community members and
parents asking them to choose among
a selection of mission statements. In
all, 1,875 people responded, according
to a presentation Tuesday by Wilma
Ferrer, Senior Director of Assessment,
Accountability and Evaluation.
From the favorites according to
the survey, the school board reached
consensus on "Quality Education for
all Students."
With that as a springboard, a num-
ber of meetings will be held between
parents, community members, and
school staff to come up with a working
plan encom passing student achieve-
ment, community involvement, a
safe and secure environment, a needs
assessment and a way to build morale,
as well as addressing the diversity con-
cerns of such groups as the Concerned
Citizens of Polk County.


Also folded into the process will be
a list called SWOT, which stands for
strengths, weaknesses, opportunities
and threats. School officials compiled
the list at a brainstorming session, and
some of the identified items include
the strength of "a talented, knowledge-
able staff in many areas," a weakness
of "lack of trust by schools for the
district office," an opportunity from
"an engaged and interested commu-
nity," and a threat from "unfunded and
underfunded mandates." There were
24 items in all on the SWOT list.
During the discussion Tuesday, new
school board member Hunt Berryman
asked, "Why are the goals identified
by the board in August not included?"
(in the strategic planning materials.)
"I think those should be honored,"
Berryman said. Ferrer assured him
that those goals would be part of the
process.
The initial strategic session
Wednesday included 75 people, Ferrer
noted. "We're trying to get input from
as many people as possible," she said.
Interim School Superintendent John
Stewart told the board that overall,
there should be two guiding principals:
"grade level proficiency in reading and
grade level proficiency in math."
"We want to be a Number One
Destination District," Stewart added.

PASSION for PETS


Parrot diet recommendations


More and more households are
choosing "non-traditional" pets tw .
be members of the family.
In my practice I have seen
everything from skinks and moni-
tors to coatimundi and kinkajous.
However, by far the most common
of the exotic pets are birds. The
majority of birds being kept as pets
are part of the order Psittaciformes
(parrots). These include macaws,
cockatoos, African Greys, cockatiels,
lovebirds, parakeets and many
more. '
Characteristically they have a
strong, curved beak, and zygodactyl
feet (two toes forward and two toes
facing backward). Caring for these
birds can be very rewarding, as they
can be very affectionate and inter-
active. But. their care does require
some effort on your part. By far the
most common husbandry issue, that


Dr. Ashley Lab


causes illness in birds, is diet.
In the wild the majority of psit-
tacines are seed eaters. However, as
pets our birds tend to be spoiled.
They are not out flying and foraging
for food, they have a smorgasbord
of tasty treats present to them in a
bowl every day.
Birds are very intelligent and they
know what they want. They will pick
through a mixture of food selecting
their favorites, and throwing the rest


to the ground. This often leads to an
excessive consumption of seeds and
nuts, which is not a balanced diet.
In an effort to have a healthier,
happier, more beautiful and more
active bird, formulated bird diets
have been developed. Pelleted
diets, such as Harrison's, Zupreem
and Mazuri, take all of the neces-
sary components for a healthy diet
and grind them up. A pellet is then
extruded, just like a kibble for a dog
or cat, which the bird cannot pick
apart to eat just their favorite parts.
This sounds all well and good, but
now comes the challenge. Try to
get your bird that has been used to
eating pizza and Snicker's bars all its
life to want to eat fish and broccoli.
This transition process is often sloiv
and takes patience on the parts of
both the owner and the bird.
My recommendation is to begin


feeding 90 percent of the current
diet and 10 percent of the pelleted
diet. Each week try to decrease the
amount of junk by 10 percent and
increase the amount of pellets by 10
percent.
Ideally 50-70 percent of the bird's
diet will consist of these nutrition-
ally balanced pellets. Another 20-30
percent of the diet should consist
of vegetables. Dark, leafy green and
yellow meaty vegetables have the
most nutritive value. Broccoli, en-
dive, peppers, spinach, squash and
lettuce are all good options. Avoid
avocados as these are toxic to birds.
Approximately 1-5 percent of the
diet should consist of fresh fruits.
Apples, bananasberries and melon
are good choices. An occasional
grape is good, but too many can

make sure you choice the fresh
fruits over dried which pack a lot of
sugar into a small quantity. Other
items which can and should be fed
in small quantities include meats,
legumes, whole grains and dairy.


Seeds and nuts can still be given as
occasional treats.
While feeding a pelleted diet
may not be as exciting to us as all
the colorful seeds and nuts, it is
the most balanced diet for your

tantly, be patient. It may take weeks

Three promoted at LMRC


Janet Fansler, Evan Jones and Mary
Ford were all promoted at Lakeland
Regional Medical Center "to fulfill the
health system's expanding mission and
vision," the president said.
"The principle behind these promo-
tions is our transformative vision in
becoming a clinician-led health system
committed to raising the quality of
healthcare while lowering the cost, and
in so doing, improving the health of the
broad communities we serve," he said.
Fansler was promoted to executive
vice president and will continue to
serve as chief nurse executive and chief
operating officer.
Her role will be expanded by having
Jeff Payne, vice president of Human
Resources, report to her.
During FY12 Fansler's leadership
played a key role in driving changes
in the emergency department that led
to national-level outcomes and sig-
nificandy improved patient wait times
and quality of care. By the end of 2012,
more than 80 percent of patients visiting
emergency were discharged or admitted
to an inpatient bed within three hours.
At the same time, more than 85 percent
of our patients were seen by a physician
in less than 30 minutes. In addition,
Fansler has been highly successful in
building a culture of excellence within
the nursing staff and in aligning nursing
services with overall organizational goals
and strategic initiatives.
Jones was promoted to executive vice
president and will continue serving
as chief financial officer for Lakeland
Regional Health Systems.
Since joining the LRMC team in
2011, Jones has directed efforts to make
significant improvements to Lakeland
Regional's revenue cycle and operational
efficiency. Under him, the LRMC/LRHS
income from operations improved
from $7 million in FY11 to $42 million
in FY12. This was accomplished at the
same time that LRMC provided $59
million in uncompensated care. He also
supported critical efforts to mitigate
reductions in Medicaid reimbursements
that were proposed during Florida's 2012
legislative session and played a key role
in working with the Polk County Board
of County Commissioners to increase
access to care for participants in the Polk
County Health Plan.
Ford was promoted to the role of
senior vice president and will continue
as chief information officer, providing
strategic and operational leadership
for technology; physician and clinical
informatics; quality and performance
improvement; risk management; health
information management reporting; and
support for the organization's day-to-
day operations.
Since joining LRHS, Ford has in-
tegrated risk management, quality,
performance improvement, decision
support and regulatory functions into a
unified team with a focus on collabora-
tion and strategy. This effort has led to
improved support for finance, strategic
development, compliance and clinical
and support services. Collaborating
with the leadership team and key
clinicians, Ford led the historic
digitization of Lakeland Regional
with a single electronic health record
system, resulting in 100 percent of
physicians efficiently entering medical
orders electronically and full integra-
tion of all financial, operational and
clinical systems. Moreover, she has
secured $12.5 million in healthcare
reform stimulus funding for LRHS by
meeting Federal ARRA Meaningful Use
requirements set forth in the American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act.


Barely 24 hours at the helm of Cornerstone Hospice, new President and CEO Charles Lee listens

in Winter Haven. Making a point to the new CEO is, from left, Deb Harley executive director for
Hospice's Polk-Hardee-Highlands region; nurse Pat Ludemann, patient care supervisor; Lee and
Dr. Lucy W. Ertenberg, vice president and chief medical officer for the seven-county healthcare
organization.

New CEO takes'helm of
Cornerstone Hospice
Charles Lee, started his tenure at the
helm of the seven-county nonprofit with
a Wednesday "Meet 'n Greet" at Polk
County operational center on Havendale
Boulevard in Winter Haven.
"It is worthy to note that out of our
8,000-plus square mile central Florida.
service geography, out of multiple op-
erational centers from Lake and Sumter
counties on the north to Highlands and
Hardee counties on our south, our new
CEO marks the taking of the helm of
Cornerstone Hospice on his first day on
the job right here in Winter Haven," said
Deb Harley, executive director for the
nonprofit's Polk-Hardee-Highlands re-
gion. During his Polk County staff Meet
'n Greet visit, Lee assured everyone that
they'll have the physician support, tools
and resources required for continued
growth in the huge Polk county region.
"I am committed for us to have all
resources in place to allow us to expand
as opportunities arise. I see our census
has been growing here and you have my
support and encouragement so we can
manage issues that accompany growth
and professional patient care ... Patients
and family care always comes first," said
the new CEO.

Hispanic Care Team named
The caregivers at Cornerstone Hospice
www.cornerstonehospice.org have
long recognized that patients are more


comfortable and fare better when they
are able to communicate in their native
language. It is for that reason that the
.nonprofit with operational center at
Havendale Boulevard in Winter Haven
recently announced its Hispanic Care
Team to care for patients residing
anywhere in Polk County.
"So that nothing gets lost in transla-
tion, this bilingual care team is extremely
important to our Hispanic patients and
their families," said Deborah Harley, '
executive director for the organization's
Polk, Hardee and Highlands region. "We
have always put the needs of the patients
as a priority."
The Cornerstone Hospice Hispanic
Care Team brings to this effort their vari-
ous disciplines from the team's members
such as nurse and admissions manager
Violet Argo, social workers Sylvia Leddy
and Brenda Torres, nurse and clinical
liaison Vivian Norrell, hospice aide Tiara
Miles, team nurse Darlene McSwain,
team assistant Adriana Rua, and volun-
teer Marva Lewis-Fuhriman.
"Oftentimes, today's medical and
healthcare-specific terminology is writ-
ten with such degree of complexity that
it's not easy for native English speakers
to comprehend, now imagine someone
who comes from the Caribbean, Mexico,
Central or South America plus add to it
facing a life-threatening illness ... This
Hispanic Care Team is indeed a great
addition to our patient care" explained
Dr. LucyW. Ertenberg, vice president and
chief medical officer for Cornerstone
Hospice.

Wolf-Parininson-White not only cause of rapid heart beat


DEAR DR. ROACH: Can you tell me
how the WPW syndrome is detected? My
mother had the WPW syndrome, and
I think I have it. Sometimes my heart
beats fast and wobbly. My whole chest
sometimes goes up and down. I went to a
cardiologist. My stress test was good. My
echocardiogram was good.
Does my heart have to be in the throes
of beating off track for the doctor to record
and detectWPW syndrome? T.Y.
ANSWER: The "WPW" is Wolf-
Parkinson-White syndrome, a common
(1 in 100) heart condition in which the
electrical impulse coming from the heart's
pacemaker in the atria takes an alternate
pathway to the ventricles of the heart.
Normally, the electrical stimulus travels
down a pathway so that it arrives in the
ventricle precisely when needed. However,
inWPW syndrome, the impulse comes
too quickly down the alternate path.
Occasionally, this leads to a big problem,


because the electrical impulse can travel
back up the normal path and down the
fast path again, over and over, causing an
extremely rapid heart rate.
WPW usually is found on a routine EKG.
There are cases where it can't be seen, in
which case a stress test is often diagnostic.
But there are more causes for fast heart-
beats.Your cardiologist has done both the
echo and the stress test. If you keep having


symptoms, you could wear a device that
records your heartbeats continuously for
24-48 hours, called a Holter monitor, or
an event monitor for even longer times.
Speak to your cardiologist if you keep
having symptoms.
WPW can be treated with medication,
but it now is more frequently being treated
with radiocatheter ablation, where the
extra pathway is destroyed with radio
waves. Not everyone withWPW needs
treatment. .
DEAR DR. ROACH: I was wondering
what you think about the latest blow
against calcium. German and Swiss
researchers followed 24,000 adults for 11
years. They found that regular users of
calcium supplements had an 86 percent
increased risk of heart attack! I've been
taking vitamin and calcium supplements
for years. Should I be concerned? VA.
ANSWER: There have been three papers
looking at calcium and heart disease risk


published in the past year. Two of them
showed no benefit or evidence of harm,
and one showed evidence of benefit.
I carefully read the German study you
cite, and the 86-percent apparent risk
almost disappears when you look at the
data regarding the cumulative effects of
supplementation.
New data always should be reviewed
with caution, especially if it overturns ac-
cepted scientific wisdom. Once in a while,
something really does turn the scientific
world on its head, but in this case I don't
think that calcium supplementation is
likely to cause a large increase in heart risk.
On the other hand, it isn't likely to cause
a large benefit, either, so consider why you
are taking it. For people with osteoporosis,
the benefits of taking calcium clearly out-
weigh the risks. For everyone else, getting
all the calcium you need from food isn't
easy, but it may have the best outcome of
all.


Plumper fingers feel better


As anybody who's ever gone swimming
or taken a bath knows, one consequence
can be prunmy fingers (and toes). Why it
happens doesn't seem to be entirely clear.
Some researchers say it's the result of
irregular absorption and loss some
skin cells plump with added moisture
while others lose it or because blood
vessels in our fingers and toes constrict
to reduce heat loss, pulling overlying
skin surfaces inward.
Whatever the cause, the result is a
case of temporary digit wrinkles.
It's not a particularly good look, but
it might be healthful and helpful in an
indirect, odd sort of way. A 2011 study
by.Idaho-based researchers found that


WELL NEWS
Scott LaFee


the wrinkles form channel patterns that
divert water away from the fingertip,
not unlike what tire treads are supposed
to do with rainwater.
Scientists at Newcastle University in
the United Kingdom tested the idea,
timing people as they transferred wet
or dry objects from one box to
another with or without wrinkled
fingers. They found that with pruny
fingers, people moved wet objects
12 percent faster than with non-pruny


fingers. Dry objects were moved in the
same amount of time regardless of
finger condition.
The finding suggests an evolved
advantage to ancestors whose digits
pruned when wet. The obvious next
question, noted New Scientist magazine
recently, is why don't our fingers always
remain prune-like?
The Newcastle scientists had one
possible answer: Pruniness means less
skin surface touching an object, which
translates into less sensory input. In
other words, plumper fingers feel better.
Body of knowledge
In the course of an hour, roughly 600,000


particles of skin fall off your
body. In the course of a year,
that adds up to about 1.5 pounds of
flesh the equivalent weight of an
iPad.
Life in Big Macs
One hour of baton twirling burns -
272 calories (based on a 150-pound
person) or the equivalent of 0.4 Big
NMacs.
