Hall inductee


blazed new trails

Athletic prowess led to

Olympic and NFL tryouts


ByJAMES COULTER
NEH S CORRESPONDENT
When John Lewter Sr. learned,
he would be inducted into the
Frostproof Athletic Hia ofrFane-lis
year, he smiled ear to ear.
"I couldn't believe it," Lewter said.
"It never crossed my mind that I
would be in it."
Lewter will be one of three former
Frostproof athletes to 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 Bulldogs Boosters, Inc., a
coalition of school staff, parents, and
other local residents to help support
and promote the Frostproof Middle-
Senior High School athletic program.
Lewter was a star athlete in high
school and college in track, of which
his specialty was the high hurdles.
He owes his athletic success to his


desire to win and
to push himself
in any sport he
participated in.
"Whatever
events that I
participate in,
I go all out,"
Lew-ter said. "And
I have to admit,
I exceed in every
event that I
participate in. JOHN LEWTER
Lewter
was born in
Frostproof on -
Sept. 24, 1954. And his exceptional
athletic run in Frostproof came
between 1970 and 1973, when he
participated in track, football and
basketball.
He was a member of the football
Bulldogs in 1971 and 1972 when

At the urging of her family, Carol
Thornburg Grimes took the piles of
writing she has written and turned it
into something mostly for them.
She surprised her family with publi-
cation of a book called "We Laughed at
her Funeral."
The title of it is for her mother,
Mildred, who was so unique that at
her funeral she, family and friends
laughed about her antics and the way
she lived.
S"People were telling funny stories
about her," Grimes recalled. "Literally
anything about her was funny and we
were not laughing at her ... everybody
loved her."


She told stories about her mother to
her children as they were growing up
and they loved them and always asked
for "granny stories."
For example, Grimes writes,
"Actually she always turned heads
because when she wasn't fixed up she
was a mess. No matter what length
her dress was, her slip was longer." It
wasn't that important to her because
in the same story in the book, "Meet
my Mother," she wrote, "Mother
didn't spend a lot of time shopping for
clothes. When she did find something
she liked, she rarely tried it on. If I told
her I thought it was too big, she would
tell me that she was sure it would fit
because the color was just right."
The stories about her memories of
her mother is one of three parts in the


.240-page self-published book. The
other two parts cover conversations
with God and the third section is on
letters she's written or should have
written. The letters don't name anyone
who maybe involved in them. And,
she adds, while there are some Biblical
quotes in them the book is not reli-
gious in nature.
"They're stories of interest and
spiritual insight but not religious," she
said. "It plants a seed for thought."
The months-long task to put
together the book has impressed her
brother, Tom Thornburg, who owns
Bartow's WWBF radio.
I'm just really proud of her," he said.
"This really wasn't a business venture

VIEWPOINT



Riley richly deserves to be in Hall of Fame


In America's Culture of Celebrity, there are basi-
cally two personality types.
One is rooted in the attitude: "It's all about me!"
Examples are endless: Entertainers with names like
GaGa and BooBoo; TV interviewers whose "ques-
tions" begin with arrogant phrases like "You have to
admit..."; weathermen who double over in laughter
at their own lame jokes; celebrity talk show hosts
who express amazement over revelations of the ob-
vious, such as Lance Armstrong's confession that he
was a doper; and of course, the Kardashians, whose
claim to their overly long place in the spotlight is
best described as "being famous for being famous."
They are not team players; they upstage their col-
leagues, their guests, and their audience, making it
clear that, at least in their own minds, "It's all about
me!" Fortunately, they are the exception. But they
are obnoxious exceptions.
In sports, perhaps more than in other celebrity
venues, teamwork not showboating is prized.
Most professional athletes are team players.
For every successful pitcher, there are infielders
and outfielders whose throws can beat a batter to
first base.
For every successful quarterback, there is an
offensive line giving him time to throw or hand off


Our Viewpoint
the ball.
Pitchers and quarterbacks are seldom showboat-
ers; they appear to understand who makes them
look good.
But there are exceptions. Many of the guys who
catch the passes and score the points in the National
Football League appear to have missed the class
where they taught humility and gratitude. They are
the "It's all about me!" guys on the gridiron.
After every scoring pass, they beat their chests
as if they had just single-handedly defeated all of
our enemies in the Middle East, or found a cure for
cancer.
And they point the obligatory raised finger toward
the sky, to make it clear that the Almighty person-
ally ordained that they would catch that perfectly
thrown pass and strut effortlessly into the end zone.
It is enough to make one wonder what God has
against middle linebackers and free safeties.
But in this cult of gridiron celebrities, there are
players who give it their all, year in and year out,
without chest-beating or finger-pointing.
Such a player is Polk County's Ken Riley, who


played 15years for the Cincinnati- Bengals, not chas-
ing the highest bucks from coast to coast, but giving
his best efforts to his team and its fans.
As a cornerback from 1969 to 1983, he intercepted
65 passes for returns of 596 yards and five touch-
downs. Few defensive players have more than 50
interceptions to their credit. He led the league three
times in interceptions.
Little known in football circles, Riley was a Rhodes
scholar.
On retirement, he became athletic director at
Florida A&M University, where he was a four-year
quarterback in his college years, and later took a low
profile but essential job as an educator in the Polk
County school system.
In his youth Riley played on the Union Academy
High School football team in the days of segregated
schools
Ken Riley is being considered for induction into
professional football's Hall of Fame.
He is richly deserving of the honor, not only for
his performance on the gridiron, but for the dignity
he displayed as a player and the leadership he has
displayed since his retirement.
We hope the NFL will recognize his contribution
to the sport and its reputation.


Florida still faces


uncertainty in


health financing


We are inching toward the hour when
the Affordable Care Act the health care
law known as Obamacare will become
reality. And some of us have more than
a passing interest in what that is going
to mean for our own specific family
situations.
The law calls for each state to have
a health insurance exchange set up
beginning next January so that indi-
viduals without coverage can find af-
fordable policies. Florida's state leaders,
Republicans all, were counting on the.
November 2012 elections to sweep away
the necessity of complying with that
mandate and have done nothing to set
up an exchange. That means it's virtu-
ally certain that the federal government
will set it up and run it for Florida.
This background has led to an inter-
esting dilemma for the Republicans,
who live by the motto that the states
know much better than the feds how to
run things. There's not a shred of evi-
dence to support that claim, of course,
but it makes them feel better to believe
it. At a hearing last Tuesday l Jan. 22) in
Tallahassee, two Republican senators
on the Senate Select Committee on the
Affordable Care Act posed questions
that capture both sides of the dilemma.
"Why should we turn over control of
our healthcare to the Feds instead of
Floridians running it for Floridians?"


Cary McMullen
IIKTe


asked Sen. Joe Negron of Palm City.
"Why on earth would Florida want to
run an exchange when it's just the fed-.
eral government telling us what to do
with very, very little flexibility?" asked
Sen. Aaron Bean of Fernandina Beach.
The committee heard testimony from
two witnesses who gave very different
reasons for the same conclusion let
the feds run the show for now.
Prof. Jonathan Gruber of MIT, who
designed much of the state program
in Massachusetts that was the model
for Obamacare, argued that the point
is expanding Medicaid and providing
insurance for everyone, never mind the
cost. Michael Cannon, director of health
policy at the libertarian Cato institute,
said that cost is the point and the more
responsibility read "blame" gets
shifted to the federal government, the
better.
Either way,. many Floridians will


be looking to the new exchange for
affordable healthcare insurance come,
January. That includes an adult son in
our family who turns 26 in December
and is therefore going to be on his own
for medical coverage. He's employed as
a teacher in a private school but doesn't
have benefits.
My question is, just how affordable
will the affordable coverage be. Even
those like me who have coverage
through an employer pay a share of
the cost that can run upward of $600 a
,month. A high-deductible policy paid,
out of his own pocket would cost much
more than that, and I'm sure that our
son wouldn't be able to afford it.
I know, there are supposed to be sub-
sidies to ease the burden for those who
earn below a certain level, but the devil
is in the details. How much will the
subsidy be? How will it be applied? How
good will the coverage be? Who knows?


All should have to pay something for
their own healthcare. But the cost of
healthcare has always been the unequal
side of the equation in Obamacare.
There have been no attempts to rein in
for-profit Big Medicine and Big Pharma,
and the solution of Obamacare is just
for everyone some with government
help to pay them what they want. '
That's better than the solution offered
by Republicans, which is for everyone,
to pay them what they want without
government help. And Medicaid, what's
that? We may yet get to a point where
the equation is balanced, but the next
year will be full of anxiety as we wait for
answers about how the medical bills
will get paid.

Carol Thomburg Grimes shows her recently published book"We Laughed at her Funeral,"a book
she wrote for her family.


BOOK
FROM PAGE 1

... it was something for the family."
The stories in the book are short in
length and is directly taken from the
writing she's done through her lifetime.
Family members have urged her to put
it into some coherent form because
when she dies it would lost forever.
"(The writing) is something I've
always done and this came about
because my kids said get it together
because when you're gone all we'll have
is scribbles and napkins," she said.
And as one can see from the writing,
Grimes has a talent for it. She describes
it by comparing her writing to Erma
Bombeck where it is short and witty,
and where one can draw a moral.
"The way the author weaves her story
of family and faith is terrific. The stories
of her colorful mother add some spice
to what is already a wonderful book
of observations of God's affect on her
life," Kari Dailey wrote on amazon.com
where the book is for sale fdr $12.
Monica Leatherman on that website
wrote that the book is so inspiring it
was delightful to read.
"Carol does a wonderful job in both
poetry and prose. It brings out the
feelings of family ties and our personal
walk with God on our journey through
life."
Teaching people is something Grimes
has done most of her life. She worked
for the Polk County School District for
30 years; 19 of those years the Lake
Wales resident worked at Frostproof
High School as a counselor.


And while she never pictured herself
writing a book, she was taken by the
compliments to her writing from so
many people. It really wasn't meant
for public consumption, though the
publisher obviously wants to make
money, she said.
"It's a collection of thoughts and
feeling and I wrote it for my family, but
it's good for anyone."
And the response from others has
been a surprise, she said.
"It's amazing to me the responses
to it," she said. She said she was
impressed by the those who told her
they liked it, including colleagues from
the school district, friends and people
from her church.
"People want to know how to get
copies and that's wonderful," she said.
It doesn't surprise her husband,
John.
"I've read it two times and I already
knew the stories," he said.
He said the writing is an addiction
to her.
"She's been doing it ever since I
knew her. She gets up in the middle
of the night and writes things down,"
he said. The two of them have lived in
the same house in Babson Park for 43
years.
The book is available on line at
amazon.com, Barnes and Noble,
Books-A-Million, and Bartow Christian
Books and Gifts.
She doesn't know if she'll do it again.
Now in her 60s, she doesn't picture
herself taking the time to do it but she
doesn't know.
"I doubt it as it's getting kind of late
in life, but I don't know. Grandma
Moses did it."

Frostproof was state runner-up. He
also played basketball then, earn-
ing Most Improved Players honors
in 1971.
His best sport, however, was
track, where he blazed a spectacu-,
lar trail. In 1973 he won the state
120-yard hurdles title in a record
time of 14.4 seconds.
After graduating in 1973, he
attended Auburn University on a
track scholarship
"I never had any idea I would
be going to college if it weren't for
the scholarship," Lewter said. "I
couldn't afford to go to college."
While in college, he ran track
for four years for the Tigers and
competed in the 1976 Olympic
Trials. He won the Southeastern
Conference 60-yard high hurdles
crown in 1977.
After graduating in 1977, he had a
tryout with the Dallas Cowboys.
Despite not making the cut in ei-
ther the Olympic trials or the NFL,
Lewter would not allow his failures
to let him down.
"Everything happens for a rea-
son," he said. "So it wasn't meant
for me to be in the NFL. That's why
everything turned out the way it
did."
Lewter would return to Polk
County where he worked for a few
years as an assistant P.E. coach at
Garner Elementary in Winter Haven
and worked part-time for the Winter

the Sheriff's Department."
He worked for the Sheriff's Office
for 21 years before retiring on
Dec. 7, 2005.
Following his retirement, he
worked for a security firm in Tampa
for nearly four years.
Since then, he has moved to
Georgia with his fiance, Mary,
where they married last year.
He considered putting time and
effort into his job in order to retire
to be his greatest achievement
outside of sports.
In sports, he owes his success to
his natural talent and the opportu-
nity to utilize it.
"Some people are just a natural,"
he explained. "Because if you are
a natural, you got talent, you got
speed and agility, and you can do
whatever you can in sports."
Tickets for the event are $50 a
person for the evening, which will
start at 6 p.m. at the Lake Wales
Country Club. For more informa-
tion or tickets, call 863-528-2888 or
863-632-0139.

'Spirited' duo will bring show for Frostproof church


Described as a heart warming
Broadway style show laced with
comedy and filled with inspiration,
Frostproof's First United Methodist
Church is next week hosting colum-
nist/ humorist, Jonathan Richard Cring
and artist/musician Janet Clazzy, dur-
ing their 2013 Tour "Finding a Njessage
in a World A Twitter."
The show includes comedic and in-
spirational essays from Cring's national
column at www.jonathots.com, with
original musical runes played by Clazzy
on the oboe and WX-5 Wind Machine.
The event at the First United
Methodist Church will be performed on
Monday, Feb. 4, at 7 p.m.
Cring is the author of eleven titles,
including "Digging for Gold," "20
Other Reasons to Kiss a Frog," and
"Mr. Kringle's Tales ... 26 Stories 'Til
Christmas." He is the recipient of the
Best Screenplay Award at the Top Ten
Films in America.
"We take some time to bring you
music, humor fresh insights into life in
these United States and ways to find
a message," Cring said. "The program
is a non-stop, inter-generational
explosion."
Music, in some form or another, has
been part of his life for decades.
"I started a family early and a music
career at the same time, which, by the
way, doesn't jive. But the key is, I stayed
with it," he recalled. "Twelve years
working in Nashville.Tennessee. in the
music industry, and touring the coun-
try. I wrote 11 books, 17 screenplays
for movies, won some awards, and
I got the opportunity in 1996 to join
forces with the musical talent of Janet
Clazzy. Along with being the father of
seven sons four of my own making
and three I adopted I have traveled
this great country so many times that
I-can recommend a good mechanic in
almost every local.
Clazzyis a musical original, having
played in orchestras from coast to 1,-
coast, and often proclaimed to be "the
female Kenny G."
"I have this fabulous instrument
called the WX-5 Wind Machine, which
gives me 250 sounds at my fingertips,"


she said. "We call the music clazzy -
the spirit of classical with the soul of
jazz pop-minded. My background
is in music. In high school they stuck a
saxophone in my mouth and when the
got too many of them they asked me if I
would play oboe. I innocently said yes.
Now, many decades later, I still have
the thing hanging out of my mouth."
Her background included a variety of
genres.
"Classically trained but growing
up with rock and roll, with a masters
degree in Music from Northwestern
University and having played in five
symphonies, I now combine all of my
tastes and experiences to write music
for movie soundtracks and perform
with Jonathan Cring all across the
country, playing what we call "clazzy"
music, the blend of classical with jazz,
pop minded."
A free-will offering will be taken and
copies of books, CDs and DVDs will be
available for purchase. For information
call the church at 863-635-3107. For
more information on the pair, check
out their website at www.spirited2013.
com.
Cling said that despite the fun and
frivolity of the show, there is an impor-
tant underlying message to their work,
and even the tour's title.
"People are always asking me why
we named our 2013 tour Finding a
Message in aWorld Of Twitter. It never
hurts to simplify things. People who
complicate matters only do so to try to
keep control or frustrate us," he noted.
"Last year as I traveled, I realized that
we need a common message. Dare I
call it a theme? And with all the mean-
ness and fussing and blame being
passed around, I landed on my favorite
six words: No-one is better than anyone
else. If you just let yourself to begin to
believe that, it takes all the pressure off
of you to try to hurt anyone, destroy
Anyone or even get on top of the game.
We entertain with the idea; we inspire
with it. We laugh about it and probably
it produces some tears. But at the end
of an hour, you will be glad that your
job is to be human and God's job is to
be God."


The talented duo of Janet Clazzy and Jonathan Richard Cring will perform in Frostproof next
week.

New senator gives vision for 2103 legislature


Soto supports furtherfunding for citrus greening research


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER @ HEAR TL ANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
With the holidays now behind them,
the first Tiger Bay Club of Polk County
luncheon for 2013, held Monday, Jan. 28,
featured freshman State Sen. Darren Soto
(D-14th District).
Although the majority of his district is
in Oceola County, a portion of it is in Polk
County- Haines City and Poinciana.
Soto opened his presentation with a list
of things he intended to bring onto the
floor of the legislature, chief among them
concerns over citrus greening.
"It's a big issue for this area, especially
Haines City" said Soto. Among the things
he will endeavor to accomplish regarding
citrus greening will be restoring funding.
(According to the Central Florida
Development Council of Polk County, U.S.
Sen. Bill Nelson sponsored legislation in
2010 to create what would be called the
Citrus Disease Research and Development
Trust Fund. The amended bill would
have provided $30 million per year over
five years for scientific research on citrus
through the proposed Citrus Trust Fund.
Nelson had no luck in moving the citrus
bill during the regular session of Congress.)
Soto also said he would strive to keep-
ing money for tourism marketing up and
made mention of Legoland.
"Even though it's not in my district, a lot


of the people who live in my district work
there," he said.
Soto touched upon several other areas,
ethical issues among them, such as closing
loopholes so that either legislators, or
family and friends of legislators would not
directly profit.
On several occasions, he spoke of
the $300 million settlement made with
lending institutions regarding foreclosures
(The banks -Wells Fargo, JP Morgan
Chase, Bank ofAmerica, Citigroup and
Ally Financial agreed to the national
settlement after allegations surfaced that
homeowners were being foreclosed on
with fraudulent documents. Source: Tampa
BayTimes; Nov. 2,2012). Soto said one of
his aims will be to introduce legislation
that will limit how many years lending
institutions would be allowed to pursue
foreclosure victims to recoup some of their
losses.
"We don't need a generation of
Floridians declaring bankruptcy," declared
Soto.
When he look questions, Soto was con-
fronted immediately with a "hot button"
issue. Where did he stand regarding Stand
Your Ground.
"1 don't support the repeal of the Stand
Your Ground law," he said.
Queried what his position was regard-
ing pay raises not just for teachers, Soto
favored them for those government


employees who are underpaid. Many had
not received raises in at least five years. In a
related matter, government pensions, Soto
said he was flexible. Government employ-
ees should be allowed to make a choice.
However, he was concerned where would
funding come from if too many opted out,
or if the legislature eliminated the state run
pension plan.
Because only a small portion of his
district includes Polk County, Soto was
challenged how he would vote in an issue
arose that pitted Orlando against the
county. After a clarification that the major-
ity of his district was composed of Oceola,
not Orange County, Soto's answer was
should anything like that arose, he would
deal with it on a case-by-case basis.
Soto was also questioned about health
care (favors letting the federal government,
not state, be in charge, at least at first); red
light cameras (voted for itl; andhis stance
on the 85 percent rule (Those sentenced
to prison in Florida who committed their
crimes on or after Oct. 1, 1995, must serve a
minimum of 85 percent of their sentences.
This applies to all inmates, regardless of the
type of crime they committed). Soto called
for flexibility.
"We need to use our dollars wisely," he
said. Those who commit violent crimes
upon others need to fulfill at least 85 per-
cent of their sentence. However, for those
-whose crime was of a non-violent nature

Bonuses debated for district's IT employees


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY HEARTL ANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

It was probably not the best timing
in the world, but Human Resources
Assistant Superintendent Denny Dunn
gave it a shot anyway approaching
the school board Jan. 22 about consid-
ering bonuses for the school district's
information technology employees.
The request came after a long discus-
sion on ways to cut the budget, in an
effort to trim $16-$19 million.
According to a presentation by Dunn
and Abdu Taguri, who is Assistant.
Superintendent for Information
Systems and technology, employees in
the IT department are highly skilled, but
make far less than their counterparts in
the private sector. This results in many
employees leaving the department after
time and money has been invested in


training them, Dunn said. Taguri, who
usually does the training, said "I tell,
you, honestly, it gets old."
The request was for a one-time bonus
of $1,500. The general consensus of the
board was that it was bad timing fora
bonus, based on a number of factors.
Board member Lori Cunningham said
that although it was a small bonus, she
did understand the need to "stop the
bleeding." Taguri told the board that he
was losing three key employees soon.
He said he had met with his staff,
and the remaining employees said they
would make the commitment to stay if
the bonuses were approved.
Most of the opposition was to singling
one department out for bonuses, when
others also were underpaid.
"We should look at all the highly
skilled departments, such as account-
ing," Interim Superintendent John


Stewart said.
Board member Debra Wright added,
"We are not adequately paying them (IT
employees) but we have other depart-
ments with the same dilemma. We're
trying to raise morale in this district.
When you start giving bonuses to select
departments, that sends a message.
Also, this is not timely,, in view of our
trying to cut the budget."
"I adamantly oppose this, and I
think this is something that should
be discussed in salary negotiations,"
Wright added.
Board chairperson Hazel Sellers
agreed with Wright, but noted the cost
for Taguri to continually retrain people
was far more than that of the bonuses.
"The IT department is crucial to the
operation of the district," she said.
Board member Kay Fields said, "If you
give a bonus to one department and not


others, you are opening a can of worms."
Cunningham suggested that other
departments be looked at for bonuses
as well. "Our human capital is the most
important thing. We set as a goal that
we want to be the best, so we're going
to have to start doing this even in hard
times, to let people know we value
them."
Board member Dick Mullenax made
the point that the remaining employees
are going to have to pick up the work
load of those who were leaving.
And Taguri and Dunn had suggested
that the bonuses be paid from budget
already earmarked for the vacant posi-
tions, so it would not really be a new
expense.
No decision was made on the pro-
posal, but school board counsel Wes
Bridges said it would likely come up for
a vote in the future.

Just as school officials are winding
up a feasibility study on offering
classes in Frostproof, Gov. Rick
Scott hailed Polk State College and
the Florida College System for their
responses to his challenge to offer
$10,000 bachelor's degrees during
an appearance in Miami.
Since it began delivering bach-
elor's degrees several years ago. Polk
State students have been able to
acquire fully accredited, four-year
degrees for less than $10,000 out-
of-pocket, according to Polk State
College President Eileen Holden.
"We're proud that we have met the
challenge," Holden said.
When the challenge was issued in
November Holden, quickly voiced
support for the Governor's vision of
affordability and access and pointed
out Polk's tradition of affordability.
In the weeks since the initial chal-
lenge was issued, colleges around
the state have worked to develop
proposals that hit the target price
point established by Scott.
"I congratulate Polk State College
for accepting my 10k degree chal-
lenge. Higher education is key to
helping our students succeed in
the 21st century economy and to
grow jobs in Florida." Scott said. "It
is important that our students can
get an affordable education, and
our state colleges have stepped up
to the challenge to find innovative
ways to provide a quality education
at a great value."


According to Holden, the average
out-of-pocket cost for Polk's students
pursuing four-year bachelor's degrees
is $7,680 and does not involve
student loans. Overall, the degree
costs a little under $14,000, school
officials indicated, but that figure did
not account for federal,financial aid
which many students receive.
Holden credited the school's
board, the support of donors to the
Polk State College Foundation, and
the Polk's administrative team with
keeping student costs low.
"For almost 50 years, Polk State
has worked to provide high qual-
ity, locally relevant degrees to the
region we serve. I can't imagine a
better value anywhere than a Polk
State bachelor's degree for less than
$8,000."
Polk State's CFO, Peter Elliott, in-
dicates that the difference between
the "sticker price" of a Polk bach-
elor's degree and the amount that
students pay out-of-pocket is made
up through state and federal grants
and the variety of need and merit-
based grants provided through
the Polk State College Foundation
and the College's own financial aid
services.,
"Federal Pell grants and Florida
Bright Futures funding are critical
components of affordability for our
students," said Elliott. "And our
Foundation has a phenomenal tradi-
tion of filling the gaps."
According to Elliott, the cost of


a four-year degree at Polk is ap-
proximately $13,700, exclusive of
any financial aid, but, he says, "The
College has always been committed
to maximizing awards for students
- and we continue to be the most
affordable bachelor's degree in our
region, by far."
Tracy Porter, executive director of
the Foundation, is quick to credit
local community support.
"Our College enjoys an incredible
relationship with our local stake-
holders. Our alumni are generous
and proud, and the companies that
hire our graduates have been quick
to support the very programs that
train the local workforce, Porter
said. "Throughout our community,
donors have stepped up to recog-
nize and underwrite the value of a
Polk State degree. That's what lets
us keep our degrees within reach
for our students without burdening
graduates with student loans."
Asked to comment on the gov-
ernor's Monday event in Miami,
Holden was all smiles. "We couldn't
be happier to know that the gover-
nor is using his influence to spot-
light affordability within our system.
Now we will turn our attention to
the challenge of securing appropri-
ate state support during the upcom-
ing legislative session. The Governor
can be a key ally in that task."
Polk State College, established
in 1964, serves over 20,000 stu-
dents annually with a range of


workforce-related associate's and .
bachelor's degrees, as well as a
variety of continuing education and
certificate programs.
City officials noted last fall that
Polk. State had agreed to look into
the possibility of using space at city
hall, which is the former Frostproof
High School, for Polk State offerings.
Funding for converting the space
into current, useable classes would
come from sources other than the
school itself, officials indicated.

Journey of healing from sexual abuse to brighter side


Book from newspaper


editor hopes to inspire many


By CASSIE JACOBY
CJACOBY@ HEARrLANDNE\WSPAPERS.COM
Kathy Leigh Berkowitz is a survi-
vor. As managing editor for The Lake
Wales News, she greets everyone with
a bright smile. Her cheery disposi-
tion and happiness is genuine,
achieved after a long-fought battle
with her inner demons.
In a riveting, 176-page autobiogra-
phy, "The Brighter Side of a Darker
Thing," Berkowitz reveals the trauma
of her broken childhood that was
filled with sexual abuse.
"It was a long time before I un-
derstood the brighter side," said
Berkowitz, brutally raped by an
unnamed family member when she
was 9. The "strange squeezes" began
when she was 7 or 8. The abuse con-
tinued until she was in the seventh
grade. She felt like a freak, alone and
afraid.
"My mother and aunt were both
his victims as well. It's one of those
things that's so heinous people don't
want to believe it really happened."
Peeling away layers of pain, she shared
her innermost thoughts about her shat-
tered self-esteem, but had to walk away
from the book a few times and wasn't
sure she could finish the tell-all.
"I started writing down the
vivid memories, revisiting those
old rooms. I forgave myself in 2004
when I realized it wasn't my fault and
thought I had forgiven my perpetra-
tor. I never wished my perpetrator
harm or confronted him. It wasn't
until was crying and shaking during
a church service last September,
what I call a forgiveness portal, that
it happened. I've been praying for
him ever since. Forgiveness sets you
free," Berkowitz recounted as her
eyes filled with tears.
Healing for the mother of four, now
in a loving marriage with her second
husband, is a lifelong journey.
"I have a strong spiritual connec-.
tion with my pastors, my counselors
and my family. I'm more comfortable
in my skin that I ever have been. At
some point you have to sit back and
say, 'I love myself.'"
Certain smells still give her what
she calls "the creepy."
"I take five seconds to focus on
something else because you can
get overwhelmed. The healing for
me has come in increments of five
seconds."
After writing what she called the
most important part of the book, "An
Open Letter to the Darker Thing," she
did a dance of victory in her kitchen.
"It's my statement of freedom."


"This is a sick epidemic and it's
time that somebody puts a face on
a victim," explained Berkowitz. who
said she wrote the book to give hope
to other survivors.
"The larger message is to know
that you're not alone. You are
special, your life has value, you
were created with a purpose and
you are loved by God. It wasn't your
fault. Abuse is abuse and you don't
deserve it. If you decide you want to
deal with things you've buried, let
someone else in."
The book details the challenges
Berkowitz overcame, including time
spent in a Texas orphanage, the
death of her baby sister, poverty and
suicidal thoughts. Her mother, at one
time a "go go" dancer to support her
family financially, suffered with men-
tal illness, and her father moved his
family often in search of a better life.
An over-achiever and perfectionist
who spent three decades trying to
show that she was "good enough" by
continually raising the bar, Berkowitz,
soon completing her Associates col-
lege degree in mass communications
and journalism, is both excited and
scared about the future.
"I'm taking a deep breath. I want to
share 'The Brighter Side of a Darker
Thing' with every dark place in the
world. It is my prayer that captives
will be set free, that light will shine
in those dark places, that healing
will take place, and that new life and
beauty will be born."

CCC too much for


Undefeated season comes to an


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACK..EY @'HE .RTL ANDNE SPAPERS.COM"
Less than three minutes into the .
game, Frostproof netminder Moriah
McCullers scrambled to her right, after
a loose ball.
Fortunately, the Clearwater Central
Catholic shot went off the goal post.
But the Lady Bulldogs weren't so
fortunate much of the rest of the night
as the Marauders traveled to Faris
Brannen Stadium lastWednesday for
a regional quarterfinal soccer playoff
game, and went home with a 6-0 win.
The visitors led 2-0 after 40 minutes
of play, and really poured it on after
intermission to hand Frostproof its first
and only loss of the season.
While it was a disappointing end, it
was still a spectacular run that brought
the Lady Bulldogs their eighth district
title in the last nine years.
"This season has been a real team
effort. I am proud to be their coach. An
undefeated regular season is something
they could look back on with a good
memory," Coach George Wrye noted.

end in first round of regionals


"I am real proud of the effort from all
the girls this year."
McCullers faced an incredible
21 shots in the game. In the previous
19 games, she and her teammates had
only given up 9 goals and had recorded
135 saves.
"She did an outstanding job in goal,"
Wrye added.
The team is still young as only four
seniors will be leaving.
"The senior class provided leadership
Ashton Robillard, Cacie Kincaid, Sonia
Perez, Taylor Hepler, and Samantha
Franks," Wrye noted.
Kincaid led Frostproof with 24 goals
and five assists on the season, while
Robillard, named the Class 2A, District
10 player of the year, had 11 goals and
three assists. Dorothy Alvarado had
10 goals and 10 assists, while Amanda
Robillard contributed with three goals
and seven assists. Playmaker Taylor
Helper had two goals and 11 assists.
while Samantha Franks chipped in with
four goals and seven assists.
The Bulldogs ended the year at
18-1-1.


Frostproof's Sonia Perez tries to keep this ball away from Clearwater Central Catholic's Nicole
Melendy (10) and Katie Englert (1).











Not sure if this is lucky, or not, with a pair of
13's going after a loose ball. Luck was definitely
not on the side of the Frostproof Lady Bulldogs
as they fell, 6-0, to Clearwater Central Catholic.
The Frostproof player is Taylor Helper, while
CCC's player is Hayley Moyer.

Citrus greening: No apocalypse,


but...


Goal is to keep industry viable until resistant trees are developed


By SUSAN SALISBURY
PALM BEACH PosT

When the citrus tree-killing disease
known as greening was detected for
the first time in the United States in
Homestead, Fla., in August 2005, some
feared the end was near for Florida's
signature industry.
Now, more than seven years later, the
apocalypse has not occurred, but the
disease that results in bitter, misshapen
fruit is said to be present in every grove
to some extent. Althoughri6o one knows
the actual number of infected trees.
many place it as somewhere between
40 percent and 70 percent.
The citrus industry has undergone
a sea change. Production costs are up
about 40 percent in many cases, mostly
due to the cost of spraying for psyllids.
the insects that spread the disease, and
to nutritional programs to keep trees as
healthy as possible.
Primarily through a grower-funded tax
on each box of fruit, the citrus industry
has invested $66 million in 129 research
projects run by 30 doctoral scientists
looking for a solution to the disease, also
known as Huanglongbing or HLB.
"We understand the sense of urgency.
We are going as fast as we can," said Jude
Grosser, a professor of citrus breeding
and genetics at the University of Florida
Citrus Research and Education Center in
Lake Alfred. Grosser and others are work-
ing to develop diease-resistant trees, but
breeding is a slow process.
"You have to pursue all the avenues.
You don't know which one the home run
is going to come from," said Grosser, who
is optimistic a solution will be found.
. The industry continues to shrink. The
state's commercial citrus acreage has
shrunk to 531,493 acres as of the fall of
2012, a 28 percent decline from 748,555
acres in 2004. That's the lowest since the
U.S. Department of Agriculture began
the survey in 1966.
This season the USDA has revised
the crop forecast downward twice since
October, because the amount of fruit
dropping from trees is greater than
expected and the worst in more than
40 years. Growers ard blaming greening
and drought In October the outlook was
for 154 million 90-pound boxes of or-
anges, but the January estimate predicts
a crop of 142 million boxes of oranges.
The grapefruit forecast has dropped to
18 million boxes from 20.3 million.
Tom Spreen, a professor emeritus at
the University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences, said


that growers are planting about half the
number of new trees they would have
planted if there were no greening.
"Going forward, the industry will be
smaller," Spreen said.
But, Spreen said, growers have come
up with a whole new line of defense the
doomsayers did not predict, which has
allowed it to produce more fruit than it
would have.
Young trees are babied in enclosed
greenhouses to keep out the Asian citrus
psyllid, a tiny insect that spreads the-
greening bacterium from plant to plant.
Once they're planted in the groves, the
trees are sprayed to keep the psyllid
population down.
"The total industry is working diligent-
ly to control the psyllid population, but
the challenge is, the psyllid in Florida is
as prevalent as the mosquito," said Ricke
Kress, president of Southern Gardens
Citrus, a U.S. Sugar subsidiary south of
Clewiston, Fla. Southern Gardens owns
groves and has the only large orange
juice plant in the southern part of the
state, producing 80 million to 100 million
gallons a year.
Southern Gardens has invested
more than $6 million in research. It has
planted the fourth generation of trees
that contain two spinach genes that
provide resistance to greening. The trees
are developed in the lab by Erik Mirkov, a
Texas AgriLfe Research plant pathologist
inWeslaco, Texas.
The genetically modified trees and
fruit will have to go through regulatory
approval from the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration, the Environmental
Protection Agency and the USDA.
Although more than 80 percent of such
crops as corn, soybeans, canola and
sugar beets are genetically modified,
there's increasing public concern about
them.
"We have been meeting with the agen-
cies since 2006. They know exactly what
we are doing and how we are doing it,"
Kress said. "We know we have a disease.
We have to find a solution. When we find
a solution, we know we will have to go
through the regulatory approval process.
We will also have to work through the
consumer approval process."
Once a disease-resistant tree is
available, Kress said, many chemicals
being used to control psyllids can be
eliminated.
Although the prestigious National
Academy of Sciences recommended
three years ago that all infected trees be
removed, most growers are no longer
doing so, except for the largest growers.


Southern Gardens has taken out
approximately 650,000 trees identified as
infected, Kress said, roughly 25 percent
of the grove now at 1.8-plus million trees.
It has planted more than 363,000 trees in
the past four years.
Pete Spyke, president of Arapaho
Citrus Management in Fort Pierce, Fla.,
said Florida growers missed the window
of opportunity when tree removal might
have worked. Since everyone was not
removing trees, the infection continued
to spread.
Those who waited too long would have
been out of business because they would
have had to remove every tree.
"They did not do that. That doomed
the rest of us to living with it," Spyke said.
Spyke, who produces citrus for the
fresh fruit market, believes in a system
he is using called open hydroponics.
It delivers a constant supply of water
and nutrients to the trees through drip
irrigation.
"Trees come into production sooner
and produce higher quality fruit. You get
more fruit, and it costs you less money."
Spyke said.
Doug Boumique, executive vice presi-
dent of the Indian.River Citrus League in
Vero Beach, Fla., said he's encouraged by
a spurt of citrus planting.
"Even with the disease pressure,
people are realizing they can keep the
tree prosperous for 10 to 12 years with
the prices they are receiving. The prices
are good enough to cover the high cost of
production," Bournique said.
The goal is to keep the industry viable
until resistant trees are developed, said
Bournique, who spends the majority of
his time seeking funding and support for
research.
Although some citrus growers have
turned to producing landscape trees,
peaches or other products, or sold their
groves, a tough bunch of growers is
keeping at it.


CITRUS GREENING DISEASE:
*What it is: A bacterial disease known as Huan-
glongbing (HLB) or yellow dragon disease, it is one
of the most serious citrus diseases in the world,
killing trees.
*Its origin: Farmers in Southern China first noted the
presence of the disease in the late 1800s.
* Florida history: In 2005, U.S. Department of Agri-
culture scientists confirmed the first U.S. detection
of greening on samples of pomelo leaves and fruit
from a Miami-Dade County grove. It is now endemic
to Florida and found in every citrus-producing
county.
- Symptoms: Yellow shoots, mottled leaves, twig
death, tree decline and reduced fruit size and
quality. Affected fruit tastes bitter, medicinal and
sour. Symptoms don't show up for an average of two
years following infection.
* How it's transmitted: Asian citrus psyllids, first
found in the United States in Delray Beach, Fla.,
in 1998, transport the greening pathogen from
infected trees to healthy trees as they feed on the
plant. They have mottled brown wings and sit at an
angle to the shoot or leaf on which they feed.
* The cure: None
- "We are not diversifying," Dan Richey,
president of 4,000-acre Vero Beach-based
Riverfront Groves, a major grapefruit
producer, said. "We believe the future
is in citrus. We are staying the course.
We seem be getting a larger piece of a
shrinking pie."
Kress agrees, "Those that want to be
in business are going to be, and those
that don't, won't be. People will adapt. In
agriculture, the only consistent thing is
the inconsistencies. Florida orange juice
is not going to go away."
With greening found in the citrus-
producing states of Texas and California
for the first time in 2012, the regions are
sharing information.
"My message to California is when you
see that tree with that yellow branch, you
have to take it out," Spyke said. "We lost
our ability to make the better choice. We
didn't react quickly enough.",

Many were used to help harvest produce, citrus


during World War II


BY JAMES COULTER
NEWS CORRESPONDENT

When Americans think of prison
camps during World War II, most think
of the Japanese internment camps in
America or the Nazi concentration
camps of the Holocaust in Europe.
What many don't realize is that there
were prison camps throughout America
that detained German prisoners of war
from-abroad.
During the war, roughly 380,000
German POWs were held in 550
prison camps across the country. Ten
thousand of those prisoners were
detained in 27 Florida camps.
Frostproof resident Harold Boik, 88,
knows firsthand about these camps.
He was a prison guard at one of them.
Boik was born in Taylor, Mich., on
June 2, 1924. He attended Melvindale
High School but never graduated.
When the war broke out, Boik sought
to serve alongside his friends in the
Army, but was turned down whenever
he enlisted.
He was finally drafted on June 6,
1944, and stationed in Miami at Camp
Kendall, a branch camp under Camp
Blanding.
As a prison guard, he oversaw the
250 prisoners at the camp, trans-
ported supplies throughout the state,
and performed other errands for the
army.
Despite being held prisoner, the
German POWs took their imprison-
ment fairly well and actually preferred
it to their service in the German army.
"They didn't want to fight any more


than we did," Boik said.
The POWs were contracted by
local farmers to pick citrus and other
produce.
"They were glad to get out there
and do some work instead of being
cooped up all the time," Boik said.
When not laboring outside the
camp, the POWs would either perform
chores such as laundry and cooking
or they would partake in recreational
activities like badminton or soccer.
The prisoners shared the same mess
hall as the guards and ate the same
food and rations, all of which were
prepared by the prisoners themselves.
Despite occasional disputes, the
prisoners cooperated well with the
guards. In fact, when Boik was set to
go on leave, some of the prisoners
crafted a wooden suitcase for him.
"Cost me two packs of cigarettes," he
said, chuckling.
During a hurricane in 1946, the
prisoners and guards took shelter in
an army warehouse in Miami. When
the hurricane passed, the prisoners
returned to the camp and volunteered
to clean up after it.
There were rarely any prison escapes
at the camp. The only one Boik recalls
was when some prisoners escaped to
take a dip in a nearby lake only to later
return.
"We caught them coming back
through the barbed wire," he said.
This was hardly uncommon with
other prison camps in Florida, as the
state had the lowest escape rate in the
whole country.
The prisoners became so enamored

with American life during their im-
prisonment that after their release in
1946, many returned to America as
immigrants.
Following the war, Boik would
transfer to Augusta, Ga., and later to
Fort Sheridan in Chicago where he was
discharged in May 1946. He returned
to where he worked before the war at
a bomber plant, which post-war was
converted into an automobile factory.
After the factory folded in 1954, Boik
would work for the ciry of Taylor before


retiring in Frostproof.
Harold and his wife Loretta
have been married since 1948,
and have had three children,
seven grandchildren, and 13 great-
grandchildren. Two of his family
members have since followed in
his footsteps and enlisted in the
service. His grandson, Michael
Boik, 24, has recently returned
from Afghanistan, and his great-
grandson, Kevin Durham, 23, is
serving in the Air Force.

The goal:


'Building a Healthier Polk
9" ,a. e "


Program aims to shed distinction of being


seventh


most obese


in country


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANN4DAI @F'HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Polk County, especially its schools,
are often recognized for the things
they do right. For example, on
Tuesday, the Polk School District
was recognized for the third year,
for its advanced placement aca-
demic program. Last year, Polk was
number one in this category.
CThe.board heard about another
tbp ranking for Polk, however, which
was not so positive: Polk County
is number seven in the nation
in obesity rates. To be specific,
"Lakeland/Winter Haven has been
deemed the seventh most obese
Metropolitan Service area in the
country," according to a presenta-
tion by Polk Vision, the Polk County
Health Department and the district's
wellness department.
A new initiative, called "Building
a Healthier Polk" has kicked off,
with an overall goal of reducing
the obesity rate in Polk County to
less than the state average, in three
years. The hope is to go from a 37.6
percent rate to 27.2.
Wellness director Debbie
Zimmerman talked about the effect
on the school district.
"Obesity is a tremendous drain. It
causes bullying in our schools and
health problems in our employees."
Nat West, a community activist
who is representing Winter Haven
Hospital in the Polk Vision project,


said he would like to see more com-
munities emulate Winter Haven's
"Family, Fun and Fitness at the
Fountain" event, held from 9-11 a.m.
the first Saturday of each month in
Winter Haven's Central Park.
The group presented six strategies
to improve the fitness level for Polk
residents. Board member Debra
Wright especially liked the part
of strategy number one that said,
"Increase student access to before
and after school wellness-related
activities.
"Children do not move much now
- they are very dormant," she said.
Wright also praised the phrasing
"before and after school activities,"
noting that teachers have about as
much on their plates as they can
handle right now, in the way of
programs and responsibilities.
The six strategies, in'brief, are:
Increase overall wellness among
youth in Polk County.
Increase access to and partici-
pation in physical activity for all
members of a community.
Increase by 10 percent the
proportion of primary-care physi-
cians who regularly assess body
mass index tBMI) on their patients,
and by 10 percent the proportion
of primary care physicians who
provide counseling or education
to their patients on achieving or
maintaining a healthy diet:
Increase by 5 percent the pro-
portion of worksites that offer an

Mosaic officially opens golf part of


resort west


of city


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY@ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Rich Mack was a man with a
dream.
The Mosaic executive who served
as the project's chief visionary -
when Streamsong was nothing
more than an idea in the minds of
a few said Saturday what was
obvious to the hundreds of invited
guests who were finally sharing in
the reality of what company officials
are hoping becomes a world-class
resort.
"For us, great was not good
enough," Mack said about the driv-
ing philosophy behind Streamsong,
and the selection of the golf course's
architects. "This venue needs to be
exceptional. The scale of this project
needed to be more than something
that was simply local. We were
looking to create something that
was not local, or regional or even
of state significance. This needed
to be national, and indeed hope-
fully something that could have an
international draw. One of the goals
I've had from the very beginning is
the name of this wonderful resort,
Streamsong, is going to be identifi-
able whether you're in Illinois, New
York, California, Oregon, Minnesota.
We think that is a very good thing
for the local communities."
Although the golf courses have
been open to the public since Dec. 21,
Saturday was the official ribbon-cutting
for the two courses and clubhouse
that have already eariihd national and
international acclaim.
Mack, Mosaic's executive vice
president arn general counsel. not-
ed that the project's genesis came at
a time when the nation's economy
was seriouslytanking. Despite that
the Streamsong dream persevered,
driven by two main goals.
"The first one is we wanted to
develop a showcase.property that
would illustrate what could be done
on land that had been previously
mined," Mack said. "In addition, we
wanted to create a compelling and
memorable golf experience to enjoy
for generations to come. Streamsong
is a powerful site, and Mosaic is
excited to introduce this venue to
the world's golf community as a
world class model for economic and
environmental sustainability."
While land reclamation is now
a big part of what Mosaic does, it
represents the first time they have


undertaken such a commercial
project on former mining property.
"There's a lot of risk associated
with this. We have never as an or-
ganization said, let's make a state-
ment. Streamsong is about making
that statement," he said. "It's about
economic vitality, it's about job
creation, and it's about showing the
world, and our neighbors, our local
communities, the state of Florida
and beyond, what an organization
can do if it puts their minds to it."
Mack made it a point to thank
company officials for green-lighting
the resort, and having the "courage
and conviction to approve the proj-
ect. There was a lot of head scratching
going on when we said what about a
destination resort and premier golf
destination in Central Florida."
The land, known as the Payne
Creek Mine, produced 100 million
tons of phosphate ore, Mack said,
primarily in the 1960s and '70s. That
resulted in about 60 million tons
of phosphate fertilizer, enough to
fulfill the entire requirements of the-
entire United States in that time.
"You can argue that it's not neces-
sarily a natural site," Mack said.
"But I would argue that it's been
sitting here for 30, 40, 50 years, that
nature has actually overtaken this
property. It is a fantastically beauti-
ful property."
The three men most responsible
for its golf look, including two-time
Masters golf tournament champion
Ben Crenshaw, were all at Saturday's
grand opening event. Crenshaw was
joined by Bill Coore, his design part-
ner, and Tom Doak of Renaissance
Golf, all of whom have marveled at
the 16,000 acre site.
"This property has some of the
most unusual, interesting and
dramatic land forms we have ever
encountered," Coore noted. "The
landscape is different than anything
we've worked with before."
Coore and Crenshaw ultimately
were responsible for the 18-hole Red
Course, while Doak was in charge of
the Blue Course. The names reflect
the resort's minimalist, "old golf"
theme, and were chosen because
of the color of ink that was used to
originally map out the 36 holes.
"The land at Streamsong was
naturally conducive to uncovering
great golf holes," Crenshaw said.
Doak agreed.
"This is such a good piece of land
f6r golf," he said. "The variety of

contours created by the mining
process allowed us to create a layout
unlike any other."
Streamsong Red was recently
tabbed as Golf Magazine's "Best New
Course You Can Play" for 2012. The
clubhouse includes 12 guest rooms,
a steakhouse themed restaurant,
pro shop, and 4,500 of meeting and
banquet space. Restaurant Fifty-Nine
is open to the public seven days a
week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.


The main lodge is presently under
construction, and Mosaic officials
are targeting a completion date in
November. It will include 216 rooms,
a conference center, full-service
spa, lakeside pool, casual and fine
dining, hiking and birding trails,
guided bass fishing and a sporting
clays range.
When fully up and running, the
resort is expected to employ more
than 300 people.

It's important to poison-proof your home


Anyone who visited our office
during the holiday season prob-
ably noticed we were almost
over run with beautiful poinset-
tias, both inside and outside our
clinic.
That surprised a few people,
because one of the most endur-
ing wives' tales of veterinary
medicine is the toxicity of the
popular Christmas plant. Now,
I don't recommend that you
actively try to get your dog or
cat to chow down on one, but
the truth is, while the leaves and
flowers can indeed create a little
irritation, their overall toxicity to
animals is a bit overrated.
But those questions, which


Dr. Lori Shank
M[5


are as annual a tradition in our
business as holiday greeting
cards and Christmas cookies
(and thanks to everyone who
brought some to our office,
we loved them all), got me to
thinking about those common
things around the house that
are indeed harmful to our cud-
dly companions. In short, if you


have an animal, and especially if
you are getting one for the first
time, it's important to poison
proof your home.
But, even as hard as it is to try
to think of everything, some-
times, as they say, stuff happens.
When I was in vet school, my
boyfriend (now husband) had a
young black lab, who managed
to eat an entire bag of Hershey.
nuggets off the kitchen counter.
He didn't discover the missing
treats until very late at night.
All he had ever heard was how
chocolate can be deadly in
animals, so of course he was
worried.
Being so late, he did a quick


Internet search and learned that
milk chocolate while not great,
isn't truly fatal unless eaten in re-
ally, really large amounts, espe-
cially because she was a bigger
dog. Still, he stayed up all night
with her to monitor for distress.
By three or four in the morning,
the only distress shown by Verde
was her annoyance with being
poked and prodded every hour
or so to make sure she was OK.
Here's the rule of thumb on
pets and chocolate: the darker
(and less sweet) the chocolate,
the more toxic it is to your pets.

Flu season not coming to close yet


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT

It's late January, so the flu season's
almost over, right? NOT ... says Polk
County Health Department Director Dr.
Ulyee Choe. According to Choe, we've
got another two or even three months
to battle the disease that has already
caused the death of one Polk County
child and sent 1,555 people to area
hospitals.
It's not as bad as Boston where a
health emergency has been declared,
but it is still a time to be vigilant in pre-
cautionary preventative measures like
a flu shot, he says, but it is occurring at
an elevated level throughout the state.
Reports indicate that'more than 5,000
cases have been reported in Florida.
"There's still another few months that
we consider the flu season," Choe says.
"Even though we believe the season
is peaking right now, there will still
be cases reported from now until late
spring."
The illness is crowding emergency
rooms and doctors offices and may
have even forced one area hospital to
reroute emergency patients to other
facilities.


We all know
the symptoms:
fever, cough,
sore throat,
runny nose,
headache and
muscle aches,
but many of us
ignore them
and continue
to our work-
place, school
or church


-\ .-


where we \ -
will unknow- I I
ingly infect PHOTO BY CATHY PALMER
our coworkers, Dr. Ulyee Choe, director
fellow students of the Polk County Health
or church Department.
members.
"We need
to let people
know it's not too late for a flu shot,"
Choe says, "especially for people over
65, children under 5, pregnant women,
people with underlying illnesses or
chronic respiratory or heart disease and
diabetes."
He adds that obesity can also be a.
factor in those most susceptible to the
illness.


Choe says the flu shot isn't a cure-
all, but is "the best tool we have."
He also adds there is no shortage of
the vaccine in the county and can
be obtained from doctors and local
pharmacies.
So what can we do to keep from
getting the flu?
Choe says anyone with flu-like
symptoms should stay home for 24
hours after the fever has subsided; any
pregnant woman or with a chronic
illness should head to the doctor if
they think they could be coming down
with the flu.
He adds that everyone should cover
his or her nose-and mouth with a
tissue when coughing or sneezing and
dispose of the tissue; avoid touching
your eyes, nose and mouth. Wash your
hands with soap and water often and
if soap and water isn't available, use
hand sanitizers.
In children, the emergency warning
signs are more ominous and need
immediate attention. Fast or labored
breathing, bluish skin color, not
drinking enough fluids, not waking
up or interacting, irritability and
fever with a rash should prompt
care-givers to take a child to a doctor


or emergency room, according to the
state Department of Health.
The DOH also warns that people
may be able to infect one another a day
before symptoms occur and for up to 10
days after being sick.
Health officials also say that residents
of nursing homes and long-term care
facilities may be at increased risk
Choe also says that Polk's high num-
ber of winter visitors could be a contrib-
uting factor in the rise in flu statistics.
"Since the incidence of flu cases
seems to be higher in the Northeast, it
could be that our visitors could be play-
ing a part in the rise in the number of
cases here," he adds. "It's a very strong
possibility."
The department director says it's hard
to get definitive data on the incidence
of flu, and that most of the statistics are
anecdotal.
"Flu isn't a normally reportable
disease," he explains. "So most of the
data we have is coincidental. But, that
doesn't mean it isn't reliable. There's no
doubt the incidence is very real."
Flu not only takes its toll on one's
individual health, national sources say,
but takes an economic toll as well in
lost wages and decreased productivity.


Baldree, Kilpatrick picked as employees of the month


Nurse Annette Baldree in the
Ambulatory Surgery Unit, was named
Employee of the Month for November
at Lake Wales Medical Center, and Jon
Kilpatrick, receiving distribution clerk,
was chosen as Employee of the Month
for December.
Baldree has worked at LWMC since
August 2000. In nominating her, a
co-worker wrote, "Annette has done
a tremendous job taking on the PICC
(peripherally inserted central catheters)
line program and getting it up to speed.
She is always willing to pick up shifts
when others are not able to and is
always willing to train new staff on PICC
lines. She is always willing to go the
extra mile and encourage staff to take
on new challenges."
Kilpatrick has been with LWMC since
December 2004. In nominating him for
the award, a colleague wrote, "Jon is
great. He is always polite and efficient.
He continuously goes out of his way to
make sure the departments have what
they need, and he always has a smile on
his face."

2nd Winter Haven
Hospital Foundation
Shooter Showdown set
The second annual Shooter Showdown,
an innovative charitable event that aims
to raise funds for Winter Haven Hospital's
Emergency Department, is set Friday,
Feb. 1 at the Fishhawk Sporting Clays
facility in Lithia.
Lynn Oakley, planning committee
member and a member of the Winter
Haven Hospital Foundation Board of
Trustees, said, "Our inaugural event last
year was a great success and gave us
many reasons to believe that the Shooter
Showdown will grow into one of Polk
County's premier annual charitable
events. And at the same time, it helps us
support the thousands of men, women
and children who are treated each year
at Winter Haven Hospital's Emergency
Room."
For the uninitiated, sporting clays is
a form of clay pigeon shooting that is
often described as "golf with a shotgun,"


said William Murrell, planning com-
mittee member and a member of
the Winter Haven Hospital Board of
Trustees.
"Sporting clays is considered by expe-
rienced shooters to be more challenging
than trap shooting or skeet shooting
because it involves shooting clay targets
at multiple stations," Murrell said.
"Unlike trap and skeet, which are games
of repeatable target presentations,
sporting clays targets are launched
from throwing machines in a variety of


trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations
and distances."
"The Fishhawk Sporting Clays facility
is one of Florida's premier shooting-
sports venues," said Alan Gustafson,
planning committee member and a
member of the Winter Haven Hospital
Foundation Board of Trustees.
The facility is on 77 acres of woodland
in the well-known FishHawk district
of east Hillsborough County, about
an hour's drive west of Winter Haven,
Gustafson said, and'offers two courses

Dental X-rays not too much radiation


DEAR DR. ROACH My neighbor had
to change dentists. Her initial exam
with the new doctor resulted in full-face
X-rays. She objected, but was told they
were low-dosage and would present no
problems. Six to eight X-rays were taken.
She is concerned about radiation. Gan you
comment on this? Does she need to be
concerned? -VM.
ANSWER: X-rays increase cancer risk, so
it makes sense to avoid any unnecessary
exposure. But you can't completely elimi-
nate exposure to radiation. Every year, we
are exposed to natural radiation in the
air, in food and water and from space of
about 3 millisieverts. A typical dental X-ray
is about 0.005 millisieverts about the
same you get in one day's worth of normal
living. So you and your neighbor can be'
reassured that the radiation dose from the
dental X-rays has a very small risk.
Other medical X-rays have much larger
radiation dosages; for example, a CT scan
could be 10-20 millisieverts, which is the
equivalent of up to seven years of natural
radiation, or about 4,000 dental X-rays. A


CT scan may well be worth it, since the risk
of cancer is still very low. But it still makes
sense for us as physicians to consider the
risk of radiation anytime we order an X-ray
or CT scan. It may helpful to know that the
limit for workers for radiation exposure is
50 millisieverts.
DEAR DR. ROACH: Some time ago, I
read somewhere that taking 200 mg sulin-
dac pills removes polyps from the colon.
If this is correct, please let me know, what
dose one should take, and how often.


ANSWER. Polyps in the colon are small
growths that arise from the lining of the
large bowel. They can cause bleeding, but
more importantly, a small percentage of
them can become cancerous. Polyps often
are removed during a colonoscopy, which
is how a colonoscopy prevents colon
cancer. Sulindac, an anti-inflammatory
drug usually used for arthritis, was found
in early trials to reduce the number of
colon polyps. More-recent studies have
shown a range of effect, from no benefit
in some trials to 65 percent reduction in
others. Unfortunately, even in the best
case, 65 percent reduction of polyps isn't
enough to be safe from colon cancer, so
currently the best way to prevent harm
from colon cancer is regular examination
by a colonoscopy. A flexible sigmoidos-
copy also shows polyps, but a colonoscopy
is preferred, since it looks at the whole
colon.
Everyone between 50 and 70
should have a colonoscopy or other
exam for colon cancer, and people over
70 should discuss colon cancer screening


with their doctor.
Sulindac, or another medication,
ultimately may be shown to reduce colon
cancer rates, but since studies have shown
no or modest benefit and all medicines
have risks of side effects, I don't recom-
mend sulindac as a way of preventing
polyps or cancer.
The booklet on colon cancer provides
useful information on the causes and
cures of this common malady. Readers can

Don't rely on the apps to completely monitor your health


It sounds like a smart application
of technology in the name of better
health: Smartphone apps that moni-
tor skin lesions for the risk of cancer,
providing not just information, but -
recommendations for when you should
actually go see your doctor.
And therein lies the problem, accord-
ing to Laura Ferris, an assistant profes-
sor of dermatology at the University of
Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Ferris
and colleagues studied the efficacy of
the top four smartphone skin cancer
monitoring cell phone apps.
They found that three of die four


WELL NEWS
Scott LaFee



incorrectly diagnosed 30 percent or
more melanomas as "unconcerning"
based upon evaluation of user images.
The apps work by scrutinizing cell
phone images taken of skin lesions,
assigning them a risk level. Researchers
uploaded 188 images to each of the
four applications, which analyze them
in different ways. from automated


algorithms to review by an anonymous
board-certified dermatologist. The
apps, some of which are free, are not
subject to any regulatory oversight or
validation.
Only the application that used real
dermatologists to review of user images
provided a high degree of sensitiv-
ity in diagnosis. It was also the most
expensive, costing users $5 per image
evaluation.
Although all of the apps have
disclaimers stating they're for educa-
tional purposes only, Ferris said there's
concern that some users, particularly


the uninsured, might rely upon them
instead of seeking real medical at-
tention with ultimately disastrous
results.
"If they see a concerning lesion,
but the smartphone app incorrectly
judges it to be benign, they may not
follow up with a physician," Ferris
said. "Technologies that decrease the
mortality rate by improving self- and
early-detection of melanomas would
be a welcome addition to dermatol-
ogy, but we have to make sure patients
aren't being harmed by tools that
deliver inaccurate results."

Why purchase a "short sale?"_


With the down turn of
the economy, many
people are facing
foreclosure.
They have
lost their
jobs and
no longer
able to
afford their
homes.
Many
of these
people have
decided they must
downsize and find an
"affordable" home
to suit their budget.
Therefore, these
homes have become
what we call the "short
sale" market.
Prices of homes listed
as "short sales" will be
lower to considerably
lower than other
homes. That is one
advantage of buying a
short sale home. You
can actually save a
great deal of money
by purchasing a short
sale not only in the
sales price you pay for
the home but also in
the interest you pay
out over the years.
Many investors have
been buying up short
sales, fixing them up,
and putting them
back on the market


for the most likely
selling price or renting
them. These difficult

Estelle Sullivan




Estelle Sullivan Realty

economic times have
brought about a rental
society and investors
are seizing this
opportunity.
Is a "short sale" always
a good investment?
Buying a home is a
big investment, and
you need to need to
do all due diligence
(inspections) to
determine the
condition of your
investment. If you buy


a home cheap and it
needs as much money
to fix it up as you paid
for it, then you may
not have made a good
investment after all. It
is important to have
a home inspection
by a licensed home
inspector and/or
licensed builder. It is
also important to have
the home inspected
by a licensed termite
inspector as well as
doing any and all
other inspections that
may be necessary.
It is always best to find
a realtor that you have
confidence in and
work with that realtor.
They know the pitfalls
of buying short sales
and frequently already
know the property in
question and much
about it.
