The


Price not right for supermarket


City council

By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY @HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
While city officials acknowledge the
need for a new supermarket, they are
unwilling to go to any lengths to get one.
Although no official vote was taken, ev-
ery member of the city council indicated
Monday night they could not support a
proposal from a group hoping to place
a Save-A-Lot grocery store in the former
Foodway Market on the comer of County,
Road 630 and Scenic Highway.
The city got a proposal Monday that
had a lengthy, and expensive, list of con-
ditions that would have to be metbefore
the market would move to Frostproof,
according to City Manager T.R. Croley
who outlined details of the request dur-
ing this week's council meeting.
Croley said the proposal included,
having the city hold a promissory note
along with a security agreement for
approximately $400,000.
"They want to hold the title and us
basically be a mortgage company for
them," Croley said.
In addition, the store owners asked the
city cover costs for any leaks or structural
repairs needed on the building's roof, to
resurface and restripe the parking lot and


not willing to meet


upgrade the landscaping, and be allowed
to subdivide the building without any
new zoning codes or permits.
Kim Walker of Walker Grocery, Inc. is
attempting to purchase the 26,000 square
foot building from Orlando Lorenzo, and
operate a Save-A-Lot that would cover
about 20,000 sqaure feet, according to
Walker's letter of intent. The letter set a
deadline to be fully executed on or before
Feb. 14.
City attorney.Mark Smith said not only
is the language of the proposal unwise, it
is likely illegal.
"That's probably an illegal action,
pledging the city credit for a private
endeavor," Smith said. "To use existing
city funds, to just loan those out, prob-
ably would not be legal."
Councilwoman Diana Webster-Biehl
said she recognizes that having a modem
supermarket in the city is high on
everyone's priority list, it can't come at
such a cost.
"I think we're unanimous in our enthu-
siasm for a comprehensive grocery store,
but I don't think we are in the business
of financing privately owned property,"
she said. "I do think we should give the

VIEWPOINT



Scott's teacher pay hike is good business


Florida Gov. Rick Scott's Wednesday proposal to
give Florida's public school teachers a $2,500 raise
has been panned by critics as a political ploy or even
a bribe ahead of his 2014 re-election campaign. The
Orlando Sentinel churtled, "We're surprised he didn't
throw in a promise of dark chocolate, red wine and
foot massages."
It's amusing when people feign surprise that
politicians make political calculations. We have little
doubt Scott's flagging popularity his approval
rating is a dismal 36 percent in recent polls is
cause for concern in the governor's mansion, but our
sense of the still-fledgling politician is that popular-
ity is not a guiding force in his decision-making. If it
were, would he be pushing for the state-run Citizen's
Property Insurance to raise rates and reduce the
number of policy holders? Risking the wrath of more
than 1.4 million policy holders strikes us as a more
risky political move than currying favor with 168,000
teachers.
Beyond the political calculus, the pay raise pro-.
posal strikes us a fair first move in restoring balance
to the state's education budget, which Scott and the
Legislature cut by $1.3 billion in the governor's first


Our Viewpoint

year in office. Not only have teachers gone for years
without pay raises, a Scott-backed plan to force all
public employees, including teachers, to contribute
3 percent of their pay toward their pension plan
will take thousands of dollar out of their paychecks.
Granted, a one-time pay bump won't erase yearly
drops in teachers' take-home pay, but it helps make
up lost ground and sets a new baseline for salaries
going forward.
Some have argued against an across-the-board pay
raise when reform proponents, including Scott, have
worked to implement merit-based pay programs.
Again, we have long said teacher pay and employ-
ment should be linked in part to the success of
students. As those criteria are developed and tweaked
to ensure accuracy and fairness, it is appropriate to
make a tangible show of good faith. There will be
some losers under the new merit-pay regime, as there
should be. We shouldn't be grading teachers on a
curve and accepting a perpetual bottom 10 percent of


underperforming teachers.
For the first time since the Great Recession began,
Florida won't be heading into the annual legislative
session forced to slash services, infrastructure and
staff. The rebounding economy has produced a pro-
jected surplus in the state budget and funneling $480
million into the pocketbooks and wallets of teachers
will produce a sizable stimulus in the coming year.
Self-imposed educational austerity in Tallahassee
deepened and prolonged the recession, as thousands
of teachers and support personnel were let go. We
don't expect Scott or legislators to admit they cut too
deep, but it's no coincidence the $1 billion added to
the state education budget last year and this $480
million pay raise proposal nearly equal that $1.5 bil-
lion meat-cleaver Tallahassee took to school budgets
in 2011.
Finally, the pay raise shows once again that Scott
is increasingly hard to pin down. He is unafraid to
change his mind or risk angering the very base of
supporters who helped put him in office.
He sold Florida voters on his business acumen to
win office. He knows an executive who can't adjust to
market realities will soon find himself out of a job.


Scott's budget shows


he's campaigning


Gov. Rick Scott's announcement of a
record $74.2 billion state budget plan
had the unmistakable air of a re-elec-
tion campaign rally last week.
That's not his fault.
Governors always make a big splash
with their budgets, both to make a
public statement of their.priorities
and to generate a little momentum
going into the legislative session. Even
a highly popular governor can't wait
until an election year to start running,
and when polls show your personal
popularity ranking somewhere between
sinkholes and citrus canker, everything
you do gets examined for its political
implications.
Had Scott proposed another year of
belt-tightening, his critics would have
accused him of solidifying his conserva-
tive base rather than reaching out to
voters who might be persuadable. By
proposing $4 billion in new spending,
Scott is suspected of trying to broaden
that base by appealing to "Florida
Families First," the slogan printed
on his lectern at the budget news
conference.
The man who announced his first
state budget at a Tea Party rally in Eustis
two years ago then signed the pared-
down spending plan a few months later
at another big gathering of applauding
supporters and school children at The*
Villages stayed in the Florida Capitol
to roll out his new budget blueprint.
This time. Scott invited about three
dozen educators, ranging from univer-
sity presidents to classroom teachers to
applaud appreciatively.


Bill Cotterell

Falw ,


He explained the proposed budget
increases two ways.
First, he said, the state needs it -
teachers deserve a $2,500 raise because
student achievement has risen. Schools
deserve $1.2 billion in added funding if
for no reason other than that the work-
force Florida needs tomorrow is in the
public schools today. Businesses should
get a sales-tax exemption on manufac-
turing equipment, and the corporate
income-tax exemption should rise from
$50,000 to $75,000 because money em-
ployers save will mean more employees
- who will send it ripping through the
economy. Besides, the catch-all answer
to every question is: "It's the right thing
to do."
Second, Scott spins these budget
decisions not as reversals but results. It's
not that he's changed his past belief that
there's always more to be cut from state
spending; it's that painful reductions
made in 2011 and 2012 coupled with
a generally improving economy have
produced the first revenue surplus
projection in several years.
Come to think of it, the Scott story
goes, we have that surplus and the


improving economy partly because of
the austerity budgets he laid out in his
first two sessions. So he contends that
those aren't spending increases, those
are "targeted investments" that will pay
dividends for fiscal years to come.
Democrats grumbled that Scott was
trying to buy his way back into the good
graces of working families, even school
teachers, by sprinkling the state's new
revenues among target audiences. But
there are plenty of plums in there for
conservatives, too.
Like 3,647 fewer state job positions, a
3 percent reduction in the government
workforce. Like no general pay raises,
except for teachers, oh, and $1,200 one-
time "bonuses" for state employees and
renewed emphasis on performance-
based incentive pay. Like no money for
expansion of Medicaid under the new
national health-care system because
Scott wants a lot more information
about its ultimate costs.
Like making top executives pay the


same for health insurance as regular
state workers. Like no new taxes or
college tuition increases.
Then there are the expenditures that
you can't really call conservative or
liberal but go down well with the voters.
Like $75 million for the Florida Forever
conservation land-buying program and
$60 million for Everglades restoration.
Like $75 million for school safety.
These things fit well on bumper stick-
ers or into 30-second advertisements,
which live only in the present. When
touting a $1.25 billion increase for
schools, there's no need to mention that
Scott's first budget cut $1.3 billion from
education or that the $398 million
more for universities in the next budget
makes up for $300 million cut from this
fiscal year.
Apart from the budget, Scott has ca-
joled state colleges into offering $10,000
degrees. He abandoned his 2010
campaign promise of an Arizona-style

ence selection, and was twice named
team MVP He was an all Region selec-
tion, and the first Frostproof football
player to earn all-state honors as well.
He was also an honorable mention
All Southern and honorable mention
All American in football as well, and at
that time, set the'school rushing yards
record as well as the tackles per game
mark.
After graduating in 1967, Byrd
attended Memphis State University on
a scholarship where he played football
for four years. In his last two years,
he was the first Frostproof student to
earn a four-year football scholarship
to a major university.
His many feats in college included
playing in a five-touchdown game,
playing as a two-year starter on var-
sity, and being co-captain his senior
year.
His greatest accomplishment was
playing on two conference champion-
ship teams, which never lost a game
up until his senior year.
His junior year was his most suc-
cessful, as his team experienced an
8-2 season, winning the last seven
games in the final stretch, and beating
big name teams such as Florida State
and Miami.


continue to keep the.dialogue open with
the group to see if other ideas might
make more sense.
"I think there might be some incen-
tives we could look at down the road,
but I would personally feel this is not a
good way to spend taxpayer's money,
as desperately as we need a grocery
store," Croley said. "I don't believe the
city is in the real estate or mortgage
business."
The city has been without a major
grocery outlet in recent months after an
attempt to re-open the former Foodway
store failed. The store was heavily
damaged by fire in early 2011, and did
no re-open for well more than a year,
before closing again.
"They're wanting us to give them
(Save-A-Lot) a nice, big present,"
Councilwoman Martha Neher added.


After playing football, Byrd would
take time off from school. He
later attended the University of West
Alabama as an assistant graduate
where he graduated in 1974.
He entered the business world in a
sales position at AT&T where for 20
years he moved his way up the career
ladder into sales management.
With a strong desire to lead, he
retired early and bought his own
franchise which he ran successfully
for eight years.
Since then, he has owned several
businesses and is currently work-
ing in his own financial planning
organization recruiting and training
salespeople.
Of all of his successes in sports and
business, he considers his close-knit
family to be the highlight of his career.
He currently resides in Birmingham,
Ala., with his wife Mary, his two
daughters, and his two grandchildren.
Byrd claims that his success in
sports was instrumental to his success
in the business world.
"I think sports gives you a unique
opportunity to learn a lot about
yourself, and it's training you to un-
derstand that no one else can do it for
you," Byrd said. "Your success or your
failure is a direct result of what you do
and how you prepare."
He went on to explain that this
understanding of self-reliance tran-
scends into the business world.
"Especially if you own your own
business, everything is dependent
upon you," he continued. "Your suc-
cess or your failure is dependent upon
you and you learn not to depend upon
other people to do it for you."
Now that he has led a successful
life in both sports and business, Byrd
has now dedicated his life to helping
others become successful in their own
lives through his training facility.
"I thought I wanted to be a sports
coach, but now I coach people more
in life than anything else," he said.

Downtown comes alive


with First Friday Artwalk


Jenny Grenke looks over the shoulder of Joe Piatt of Rainbow Resort where he has taught
painting classes for better than two decades now. Tina Miller, second from right, and Judy
Jackson were also on hand to enjoy the festivities.


PHOTOS BY K.M. THORNTON SR.
The Frostproof Art League held its most recent First Friday Art Walk event last weekend, under
sunny but cool skies, still better than the rain that greeted the inaugural event last fall. Here,
newly elected Art League President Jenny Grenke explains painting on the gallery wrap to young
Samuel and Faith Manner of Frostproof. Samuel is in the art league's after school program. In
the background is Debra Cunningham who has set up shop as a licensed massage therapist at the
Market Square building, and offered free "samples" of her service.


The show wasn't only about local artists.
Elaine Moore of West Palm Beach heard
about the Frostproof Art Walk from a
friend and brought her hand-painted
shells and art work.


The Kitchen Band played in the courtyard at Roscoe Cafe.


Hip Hillbilly Farm Soaps was on hand to try and "clean up." Mary Higgins was pinch-hitting for her
mother Lyric who was a little under the weather Friday. Mary displayed the talented hands that
help make the goat milk soaps with the help of her brothers and father, Anthony Higgins.

MARDIG S



Laissez le bon temps roulor



That means let the good times roll


and they will Saturday downtown


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
Look out ... the good times are rollin'
into Lake Wales when the rollicking
Krewes deck out and let loose to
celebrate Fat Tuesday ... Mardi Gras, the
last feast day before the Lenten season
of fasting before Easter begins.
"Laissez le bon temps roulor" or
let the good times roll is the famous
phrase that will inspire thousands as
they gather at 3 p.m. for the 29th annual
celebration and parade through the
downtown area.
More than a dozen Krewes (secret
fun-loving organizations) with Polk
County Sheriff Grady Judd as grand
marshal, will parade their floats, regale
the community with their music and
antics and gift everyone with those
ubiquitous, if tacky, Mardi Gras beads
that kids and grown-ups alike clamor
for.
Krewes like Rex, Aphrodite, Pegasus,
Wild Shiners, Zazu, Kaos, Rebbew,
Sirens, Tatas, Elks Lodge, Hubo,
Parrotheads and Moose have been
working for weeks on their floats that
will work their way from City Hall to


Central Avenue to Scenic Highway, then
on to Stuart Avenue, to First Street to
Park Avenue and finally to Third Street.
Ironically, Lake Wales' Mardi Gras cel-
ebration started as a memorial for late
restauranteurVinton Davis who asked
his family and friends to honor his pass-
ing with a New Orelans-style wake. And,
it's grown each year from the original
one band and four krewes to more than
a dozen crews and who-knows-how-
many marching and dancing revelers.
While the parade doesn't start until
3 p.m. on Saturday the festivities will
have long been under way. Various
krewes will have already had their
masked balls and crowned their royalty
who will be the honored atop the color-
ful floats. The Pegasus Krewe's annual
Coronation Ball is Feb. 8 at the Lake
Wales Country Club, just to name one
of the gala events, Kinloch said.
On Friday, Feb. 8, from 6-11 p.m.,
there will be a live band Hubo perform-
ing at the downtown Marketplace and
a beer and wine garden will beckon to
party-goers. There will be food vendors
as well,according to this year's Mardi
Gras committee treasurer Katie Kinloch.
She said there will be tables and chairs


inside the beer garden tent. "Even
though beer and wine will be available,
this is a family-friendly event," she says.
"We want everyone to come out and
enjoy themselves."
The children's activities also precede
the parade and will start at about noon.
The children' activities area will be
at scenic Highway and Stuart Avenue
where their will be a video arcade, a
rock climbing wall, hamster ball and
bungee jump, just to name a few.
Kinloch also said there will be more
than a dozen craft vendors to add to the
merriment.
Like the sister celebrations in both
New Orleans and Mobile, Ala., the
Lake Wales celebration also offers
continuous music. This year, there
will be bands playing downtown start-
ing at 11 a.m. with Jon and Debbie
Corneal, followed by Mustang Sally
and the Hamjos at noon, Sticky Steve
and the Pollinators at 1; then the Jug
Band at 2. After a break for the pa-
rade, the bands resume play at 5 p.m.
when Joe Willy takes over the mike
with Beebs and the MoneyMakers
capping off the evening from 7 p.m.
until 9.


Mardi Gras in the Americas started
as a religious holiday more than 350
years ago when the French landed in
Louisiana, but today is completely
secular. The Lake Wales event is coor-
dinated by the Mardi Gras committee
which is comprised of volunteers
from each of the Krewes and mem-
bers of the community.
"It's all strictly volunteer," says
this year's Mardi Gras President Bill
Ouellette. He and Kinloch said the
committee starts working in early
summer to make the festivities hap-
pen. "It's a lot of work to pull some-
thing this big together," Kinloch says,
"and it isn't cheap.
"We couldn't do this without our
sponsors," she adds.
Among the sponsors for this year's
Mardi Gras are Budweiser, Lake Wales
Medical Center, chalet Suzanne,
97 Country, Killebrew, Inc., Paublix,
Beef O-Brady's, republic Services,
Max 98.3, Lake Wales Country Club,
Lake Wales News, Bullard Insurance,
Action Signs, All-Star Grill, Party Rental
Unlimited, Crazy Fish.Grill, Texas Cattle
Company, Sizzlin' Grill, Rent-a-King, Joe
Miranda Inc. and Downtown Deli.

Regional loss closes super soccer season


Bulldog seniors help lead team


to undefeated


regular


season


By BRIAN ACKLEY
B-iCKLEI (IHEi RTL NDNEV.SP.,PERS.CIjr .I
A talented group of seniors, aug-
mented with a nice group of impres-
sive underclassmen, was the formula
for success this year for the Frostproof
Bulldogs on the soccer pitch.
Although the season came to a close
at Tampa Berkeley Prep last Wednesday
in a 6-0 loss in the first round of:
regional playoff action, it only put a
temporary tarnish on an otherwise
super season that included an unde-
feated regular season.
First-year coach Sean Smith said
there were some reasons, in retrospect,
that die season ended as it did, and
that the final score last week wasn't
indicative of the difference between,.
the Bulldogs and Berkeley Prep.
For example, Berkeley beat DeSoto.
just 2-1 in the second round of regional.
play. Frostproof defeated DeSoto twice
during the regular season, and lost the
district title to them on penalty kicks.
In that game, Frostproof lost its
leading scorer, Robert Aguilar, who
likely would have been one of the
Bulldogs to take a penalty kick, which
could have easily changed the out-
come. Aguilar was out against Berkeley.
Prep too.
And, Frostproof lost its starting
goaltender, Rhett Pooley, just six games
into the regular season rafter he and the
Bulldogs defense posted four shutouts
at the beginning of the year.
m^ 16 regular season games,
FTkstproof went 15-0-1, the only


blemish a tie at Ridge Community
early in the season. When the two
teams met to close the regular season
at Faris Brannen Stadium, the Bulldogs
posted a 5-0 triumph.
"We showed them what we could re-
ally do when we played in Frostproof,'"
Smith said.
He said he thought early on his team
would be pretty good, just not sure
how good.
"After tryouts, I knew we would
have a very competitive team. The
attitude, the skill level, the seniors, I
had 12 seniors, all contributed. These
guys have been together for a while,"
Smith said.
The Bulldogs hung with Berkeley
Prep in last week's regional game, at
least for the first 20 minutes. But a
questionable foul call led to a quick
restart goal for the hosts, and that
seemed to set Frostproof back on
their heels for much of the rest of the
night.
"I kind of feel that district loss kind
of took the wind out of our sails,"
Smith added. "But an undefeated
season, you couldn't expect. It was
a great experience, a great season.
It's just not the way we wanted to go
out, but I can't say enough about the
attitude and the commitment level of
all the guys. It was great. They really
worked hard for that undefeated
regular season."'
The Bulldogs also brought home
a bushel full of awards. Humberto
Alvarado was named the Class 2A,"
District 13 Player of the Year, while

All state all-star nominees include
those two along with Estevan Rivera,
Jorge Callegaes, Ambrosio Suarez and

Robert Aguilar and Rivera both net-
ted 12 goals this year, while Aguilar
added six assists and Rivera three.
Alvarado scored 11 goals, while Bobb

and Espinoza each netted six.
Defensively, they only allowed
23 goals against all season.
Smith said there is a good group
coming back, despite the big loss of
senior talent.
"There are definitely parts coming
back that if they can stay healthy they
can still have a very successful year,"
Smith said. "We're going to have a
very strong nucleus."

School district has ideas if budget money comes through

School district has ideas if budget money comes through


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Florida Gov. Rick Scott rolled out his
proposed budget last week, emphasiz-
ing a $1.2 billion increase in education
funding over last year.
And if the funding increase comes
through, Polk County school officials
have an idea where some of the money
will go.
"I think Gov. Scott did a very good job
ofprioritizing needs. He did an exten-
sive tour of Florida schools (in the fall)
and listened to teachers and staff about
their,concerns," Interim Superintendent
John Stewart said.
Asked if the increases were adequate,
Stewart said no, but added, "The state
is so large and the needs so great, I give
him credit for trying."
Of the budget increases, the teacher
salary increases may be most easily
understood, but what do those other
categories mean, and how would more
money for them affect Polk County?
School safety is a primary concern
these days, following the Sandy Hook
attack that took the lives of 20 children
and six adults in December. Polk is in
the process of beefing up its security,
particularly at the elementary schools,
according to Safe Schools Director
Greg Bondurant, and the $10.5 million


increase statewide would help.
"I can tell you exactly what we would
use that for in Polk," Bondurant said.
"Security cameras and better fencing."
"We are trying to retrofit our older
schools' fencing so that the only en-
trance is to the front office." Bondurant
.said. He and the District's facilities
department are in the process of taking
an inventory of schools needing this
upgrade, along with materials needed
and cost: a process that may take
through February to finish.
"We also want to have security cam-
eras at every school," Bondurant said.
"Cameras don't stop crime, but they
sure give you a better picture of what's
going on, and if someone's on campus
who shouldn't be."
Factoring in installation cost and a
DVR monitor for each camera, each one
would run about $1,000, Bondurant
said. "We are proceeding where the
funding is available, and we are focus-
ing on the elementary schools, because
those kids are the most vulnerable,"
Bondurant said. (Also, there are school
resource officers at the middle and high
schools, at a cost of about $40,000-
$45,000 each.)
Converting textbooks to digital form is
already mandated to take place in Florida
by 2014-15. At least half the state's written
material must be accessible through


ebook readers or iPads, or other elec-
tronic devices by then.
Thus the budget allotment of
$100 million for digital learning initia-
tives, previously an unfunded mandate.
According to Abdu Tagari, Assistant
Superintendent for Information
Systems and Technology, the proposed
amount would be a drop in the bucket.
"The devices cost about $500 each, so
for Polk alone, the total would be about
$50 million," Taguri said. "And when
you have that many devices, you have
to have the infrastructure and resources
to support the system."
Taguri said the district has been
working on the conversion for about
two years now, and pretty much all the
schools have some Kindles and iPads,
but certainly not every student, as
mandated by the law.
Taguri said the district has a project
going called "Bring your Own Device,"
by which students can download
school materials to their own electronic
devices, including smartphones. He .
said the initiative has been successful to
some degree, and Bartow Middle School
is one that has had good participation.
Teacher salaries would be boosted
by about $2,500 each under Scott's
proposal, for a total of $480 million.
Polk's teachers received step increases
this year, but still struggle to catch up


with some other Florida counties.
Student Funding (FEFP is the for-
mula used to calculate per pupil fund-
ing) has been proposed by Scott to in-
crease by $412.25 per student, for a total
of $6,799 per student. The state is in the
process of converting to Common Core
standards, which will better standardize
curriculum nationwide, and this comes
at a cost. According to the DOE website,
Scott's initiatives are aimed at helping
to fund this conversion, kindergarten
through 12th grade.
Scott's budget is a proposal only at
this point, and the legislature must still
tweak and study to ensure the increase
is doable. After the budget is finalized
and voted on, it goes back to Scott for
his signature (or vetoes, as the case may
be.)
According to the Department of
Education, the $18.5 billion budget
being proposed for public schools
includes these K- 12 highlights:
$480 million for teacher salary in-
creases, $100 million for digital learning
initiatives, $10.5 million more for safe
schools for a total of $74.9 million,
a 16.2 percent increase and $412.25
per student increase overall in Florida
Education Finance Program or FEFP
(the formula used to-calculate per
pupil funding) for a total of $6,799 per
student.


Tax, stop smoking assistance at library


Got completing your taxes on the to
do list?
How about stop smoking?
If either are both are on your agenda
in the near future, Frostproof's Latt
Maxcy Memorial Library will offer pro-
grams that will help low- and middle-
income families get tax returns filed
and a separate program to help smokers
quit that habit.
From now through April 15, volun-
teers from the AARP Tax Aide Program
will set up shop at the library at 15 N.
Magnolia Ave. Volunteers will be on site
Monday and Thursday mornings from
8:30-11:30 a.m. and again on Monday
nights from 4:30-7 p.m. It is the 29th
straight year the AARP has offered the
service at the Frostproof library.
There is no charge for the service,
and electronic filing is also free. A direct
deposit refund option is also available,
although those who want that much
bring a check to verify account and
routing numbers.
Participants are also asked to bring
last year's tax return, copes of all
W-2 and 1099 forms and proof of
other income, Social Security cards
or Individual Tax Return cars or ITTN
letters for the person filing the return,
their spouse and for any other person


shown on the tax return, and a valid
picture ID.
Starting Feb. 21, weekly classes
designed to help people quit tobacco
will be held, at no charge. It is a six-
week program and runs through March
,28. The program includes free carbon
monoxide testing, free nicotine patches
while supplies last and free quit smok-
ing now workbooks and incentive items.
All groups are led by trained tobacco
cessation specialists, and cover all
forms of tobacco.
For information on either program,
call 863-635-7857. For those wishing
to pre-register for the quit smoking
program, it can also be done by calling
352-569-2971.

Community Club is 85 years old and going strong


By GEORGE FRANICEVICH
NEWS CORRESPONDENT
A Frostproof tradition that dates
back to before The Great Depression is
still going strong today.:
The Community Club is the perfect
place to meet and get to know your
neighbors, while participating in a
variety of stimulating activities.
Community Clubs or Community
Centers as they're also known,
have existed since the early 1900s.
Frostproof's Community Club was
founded in January 1928 by Hope
Hubbard Littlefield, known as a lady
who took an active interest in all civic
affairs.


Clinton Child, an early Community
Club organizer, described his organi-
zation as follows:
"A Community organized about
some center (club) for its own politi-
cal and social welfare and expression;
to peer into its own mind and life, to
discover its own social needs aid then
to meet them, whether they concern
the political field, the field of health, of
recreation, of education, or of indus-
try; such community organization is
necessary if democratic society is to
succeed and endure."
Such it is with the Frostproof
Community Club, also known as the
Frostproof Tourist Community Club
indicating that snowbirds and other


temporary visitors are just as welcome
as the city's permanent residents, to
join the club and participate in club
activities. It is located on East Wall
Street.
Fred Fleming, who's brother Carl is
the president of the club, described
how "the club members enjoyed par-
ticipating in shuffleboard, bingo, and
cards (pinochle) and how beginners
were always welcome to come and
participate in any of the activities."
Those are just some of a wide array
of offerings.
"Wednesday mornings we have the
Koffee Klutch," remarks Hazel Wright,
and "Wednesday afternoon there's crafts
where learners are also welcome."


For those interested in staying fit
through physical activity, they can
join member Bev Anderson in his
"daily walks all over town, weather
permitting.
"Also twice week, we bicycle out
to Lake Arbuckle and back," said
Anderson, referring to himself and
about a half-dozen other members.
Betty Williammee, the Sunshine
Representative, was on-site with her
camera memorializing some of the
members participating in the days
activities.

joined in the conversation expressing
their positive feelings about the club.
Fred tells how Fleming Road carries
the family name because when Carl got
his house back in 1959, it was the only
house at the end of an unnamed road.
The irrepressible "Bev" Anderson
chimes in "that Beverly Road where
he lives isn't named after him," but
that he moved there so that in his later
years when he gets "old and lost" it
will be easier for him to find his way
home.
Fleming explains how not only do
the members come together periodi-
cally for the a covered dish meal and
the monthly meeting, but also they
"get together once a month at an area
restaurant for a Dutch Treat meal to
celebrate any birthdays and/or an-
niversaries that occurred that month.


and a selected 'out of the season'
month."
"Members look out for each other,"
Wright says, giving an example of
how "this month they're all going to
meet her at the club and car pool to a
performance at the Lake Wales Little
Theatre."
He said there's many reasons the
club decides to do these types of
things.
"This not only makes a nice social
evening out for the couples but
also for the single people and those
couples where one may want to go
the theatre and the other is unable or
would rather not attend," he noted.
The club has a pool table and is
looking for pool players, as well as
,other card players in addition to the
pinochle players.
"We're always open to new ideas and
other activities," Wright said.
Joining the Club only costs $5 a
season..You get up to three free visits
while you're trying to decide whether


to become a member or not, except for
crafts which only allows one free visit.
"Even though the official season
runs from November till March, the
club remains open as long as there is
an interest in any of the activities. All
are welcome including visiting guests
of members who are welcome to come


and participate in Club activities,"
Williammee added.
Other activities include shuffleboard
on Wednesday mornings and penny
Bingo on Thursday evening.

at 863-635-3108, or via email at fptcc@

Citrus greenin


researchers 'atL


er


Sparks: We are fighting for our lives


A sense of urgency hung over the
opening day of the 2013 International
Conference on HLB as more than
500 scientists from across the globe
gathered Monday to discuss a disease
threatening to wipe out Florida's ,
$9 billion citrus industry.
During the five-day event,
researchers from 22 different
countries pored over a wide array
of potential antidotes to HLB, also
known as citrus greening, including
bio-controls, antibiotics and genom-
ics. The Conference was hosted by
Florida Citrus Mutual, the country's
largest citrus grower organization.
"We are fighting for our lives
against'this insidious disease and
we know a solution lies in the
laboratory," said Michael W. Sparks,
executive VP/CEO of Florida Citrus
Mutual. "A critical part of the re-
search process is getting scientists
together in one place to discuss
results, data and innovations and
this is exactly why we created the
HLB Conference."
He added: "All of these scientists
are keenly aware that the future of
our industry is at stake."
HLB, or citrus greening, is found
in all of Florida's 32 commercial
citrus producing counties. The(
bacterial disease is spread by the
Asian citrus psyllid and it attacks

University of Florida economists

ing more than 8,200 jobs since being

"The continued increase in infec-
tion in Florida citrus is cause for
alarm, and aggressive efforts of the
industry to organize research may
provide the only answers. Progress
in many areas of research offer
promise to slow spread, reverse the
health of the infected tree inven-
tory, and allow growers to eventu-
ally replant with disease-resistant
trees," said Dr. Harold Browning,
chief operations officer of the
Citrus Research and Development
Foundation. "The question is
whether we can accomplish this
soon enough. Thus the Conference
is a vital part of scientists sharing
progress and updating the industry
on progress, and warrants support
from the Florida industry."
The Florida citrus industry creates
a $9 billion annual economic impact
covering about 550,000 acres.

PASSION for PETS


Snakes
Snakes have been an interest of mine
since I was 8 years old.
It started with collecting local species
like garter snakes, watersnakes, and
rat snakes, and then evolved into large
collections of various species including


as pets
boas and pythons. They were easy to
maintain, and provided a constant
stimulus for learning.
Ophiophobia, a fear of snakes, was
early on the learning curve. Some
people are very afraid of snakes. So


First, we don't sell acupuncture as some
kind of "miracle cure" It isn't. But, in many
cases, especially chronic cases that have not
responded as well as might be expected to
conventional treatments, acupuncture offers
a viable, safe and affordable alternative often
with very good results..
Treatment is available for issues of many kinds,
including lameness, skin condition, urinary
tract and kidney issues, and neurological and
respiration ailments. Dr. Shank is one of just a
handful of vets in all of Florida certified by the
renowned Chi Institute in both small and large
animal acupuncture.

be right for your dog, cat or horse.

far it is the strongest fear that I have
observed in people. As a result, I vowed
to never purposely scare anyone with
one of my captive snakes.
. There are many species of snakes that
are very adaptable to being handled
and kept as pets. There are also species
that are not tractable and are not easily
kept in captivity.
Certainly, I do not recommend any of
the venomous species as pets, although
there are collectors that responsi-
bly keep poisonous snakes in their
collections.
Snakes reptiles in general do not
exhibit emotions. They can respond to
their owners, but tio not show affection,
love, hatred ... etc.,as their brains are
rather small and function to provide


them with an amazing adaptability
to survival in their native habitats.
They do not have vocal chords so they
are a quiet pet, and do not produce
dander or dust making them rather
hypo-allergenic.
As pets, they need a safe and ad-
equately large enclosure. Historically
the aquarium with a good lid has
worked well. Temperature should be
maintained and monitored according
to the needs of the specific species. For
example, most boas and pythons are
tropical and need temperature ranges
from mid 80 degrees F to 90 degrees E
A gradient is best.
Thermometers are a necessary part
of maintaining a snake. I prefer a heat
source that is not a light. Snakes do not
have eyelids that can close, so constant
light is a stress to the snake. A daylight
cycle with a basking light will help
mimic a natural environment.
A clean water source should be
available at all times, preferably large
enough for the snake to soak itself. This
really helps when they shed their skin
as they grow. A hiding box will provide

a secure place for the snake. Although
there are a variety of safe bedding ma-
terials available, I have always preferred
newspaper because it makes it easier to
clean the entire cage.
Carpet (indoor/outdoor) can work
well and can be washed with the
laundry. A branch of oak or citrus wood
can enhance the cage substrate and
help with the snakes shed.
It is important to keep the cages
clean. Most snakes defecate after they
have eaten, making their cage cleaning
predictable.
Because snakes eat whole "prey,"
their diet is nutritionally balanced and
simple. Mice and rats for most species,
chicks or quail for some, and fish for
some of the watersnakes. Some species
of snakes can be trained to eat thawed
(frozen) prepared snausages. One of my
favorites is the hognosed snake which
exclusively eats toads in the wild. I usu-
ally trained them to eat mice scented
with toad. Most of the animals I kept

in my collection fed readily on thawed
frozen food, which is available online
and was much easier than maintain-
ing live mice and rats, etc. Most snake
species can be fed at 1-2 week intervals.
One benefit of snakes is that they can
be left at home, alone, without issues of
separation anxiety or ill will, for weeks
at a time.
I have really enjoyed my experience
with snakes as pets. It is not a hobby for
everyone, but I encourage kids that are
interested to keep learning and to be
responsible.
A comment on the python situa-
tion in South Florida: The press has
distorted the problem with pythons
in Florida. There are not hundreds
of thousands of snakes and there are
very few really large ones. The January
prize hunt had yielded only 27 snakes
as of Jan. 23, with a significant number
of snake "hunters." I. agree that these
snakes are an issue and need to be
controlled, but the perceived concern
with these snake has deterred a lot of
people from visiting the Everglades un-
necessarily. Exotic species, both plant
and animal, are a constant challenge to
our native natural balance. We should

Pet Peace of Mind volunte


Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative
Care started a Pet Peace of Mind program
with the goal of bringing peace of mind to
hospice patients who own pets by funding
pet food, litter and routine vaccines.
The program also provides pet-loving
volunteers to assist with dog walking and,
transportation to vet appointments plus
visiting the pets' owners at home, nursing
facilities, hospitals, or wherever patients
maybe.
Jeff and Joyce Vose of Winter Haven
are volunteers for the Pet Peace of Mind
program. They hail from Pennsylvania and
have been Floridians since 1985, where
both worked for State Farm Insurance.
They love all animals, but have an affinity
for dogs, especially dogs that have been ill-
treated, displaced, homeless or discarded,
like Sugar, their 7-year-old female Lab mix
that was thrown out of a car. Sugar now
rules the Vose household, commandeer-
ing the family golf cart as she loves rides
in the open. Jeff, Joyce and Sugar are one
of several volunteer households willing to
welcome and care for pets whose owners
are Hospice patients unable to care for their


pets due to their illnesses.
Bev Johnson, president of the Dynamic
Dog Club, had a list of 14 pet therapists in-.
terested in becoming Cornerstone Hospice
volunteers. She teaches certification classes
for therapy dogs at Dynamic Dog Club. Her
interest in a therapy dog program began
with an encounter in anAlzheimer's facility.
The final stages of this disease had left her
mom in a catatonic-like state, not speaking
for the past several months. During one
visit, Johnson saw a therapy dog visit the
parlor and watched as her mother's eyes
began to track the dog. When the handler
brought the dog up closer, her mother
reached out to pet its head and put her
arms around the dog's neck asking the
handler, "What's her name?" For a brief few
minutes Johnson saw her mother smile and
come back from her foggy far-away world.

Use the KISS method in your kitchen


Half the people on antidepressant
medications in this country are on them,
most likely, because they attempted to
use their new, state-of-the-art electronic
kitchen devices. In order to use these
"miracle time-savers," they were forced to
study 17 pages of safety instructions, and
297 pages of operating and dismantling
instructions. Truth is, the machines are
the brainchildren of engineers who have
never cooked or washed dishes. The
gadgets require a great deal of time to
'assemble, take apart after use, wash, dry,
re-assemble, and put away.
A major reason for our nation's health
crisis is the fact that folks are over
scheduled and have taken a permanent
leave of absence from cooking, or they
never learned the art from their busy,
over scheduled mothers. Incidentally,
cooking does not mean inserting a
frozen "convenience dinner," loaded with
unhealthy additives, into a microwave for
two minutes; it also doesn't have to mean
slaving all day in the kitchen.
Preparing fresh, nutritious fare is im-
perative for good health. Basic, inexpen-
sive ingredients can be transformed in
minutes into hundreds of body and soul
nourishing dishes. 90 percent of cooking
can be achieved without a single ma-
chine. The remaining 10 percent can be
skipped. Keeping our kitchen equipment
streamlined, and using simple cooking
methods makes meal preparation enjoy-
able, speedy and rewarding. This is the

The time we believe we save by not

of food we consume we are sicker or

Most soups do not need to be uni-

DVT is a large blood clot in leg or pelvis


DEAR DR. ROACH: Last February,
I had a massive DVT from my ankle
to mid-thigh. I had no pain at all
and walked three miles shortly be-
fore my regularly scheduled physi-
cal. I missed that my leg was very
swollen. My doctor stated that that
was one of the traditional reasons
for getting a DVT.
I have taken Coumadin for the
past 10 months. One doctor says I
should take this medication for the
rest of my life, since the clot was so
large and there was no reason for
my having gotten one. The other
says that since this was the first
clot I have ever had, I can stop
taking the Coumadin and observe
the leg for new swelling/pain. I am
otherwise in very good health. I
am totally indecisive about what to
do. What would you recommend?
- M.D.
ANSWER: A DVT (deep venous
thrombosis) is a blood clot in the
large veins of the thigh and pelvis.
These cause trouble by themselves,
by producing leg swelling that can
range anywhere from annoying to
disabling, but more importantly,
they can break off and travel up
into the lungs, called a pulmonary

Most authorities recommend life-
long warfarin (Coumadin) only after

like yours, where there is no clear
reason for having had one. However,
clinical judgment may sometimes
cause a physician to advise lifelong

thing that can be serious.
In my opinion, because the initial
blood clot was not life-threatening,
I would probably agree with your
second doctor to not continue the
warfarin for the long term. However,
your doctors should look carefully
for some other reason why you had
the blood clot in the first place.
Please let me know what they find,

DEAR DR. ROACH: Has modern
medicine come up with any remedy
for the loss of equilibrium and
balance that we elders encounter?
Surgery, perhaps? L.M.E.
ANSWER: Definitely not sur-
gery. Balance is a complex system
involving eyes, a sense of where
your limbs are proprioceptionn)
and where gravity is, through the
organ of balance in the inner ear.
Finding out which system might
be making you off-balance can be
tricky. Fortunately, balance exer-
cises ideally supervised by an
occupational or physical therapist

DEAR DR. ROACH: My company
checks cholesterol once a year. My
level is 256. I know this is in the
high range, but what is the differ-
ence between fasting against non-
fasting? Would the level be higher
or lower if I were to do a fasting
cholesterol check? M.S.
ANSWER: Eating usually has only
a small effect on total cholesterol
- raising it a little, in most people.
What is more important is the result
of the HDL cholesterol. A healthy
diet with lots of vegetables, fruits
and little red meat can help choles-
terol level in almost everybody.

ters, but will incorporate them in

How can

I keep

track of

all the

homes I

see?
Your agent will
provide you with the
listings or a list of the
homes you are be-
ing shown. You can
make notes or cross
off properties as you
see them. Agents
have the tools to help
you keep track of
your listings.

How many homes
should I consider
before closing one?
There is no specific
number. You usually
have a certain area
you are interested
in. Once you nar-
row down that area,
your choices of size
of bedrooms, condi-
tion and price will
narrow that number

Some
people
look at
one home
and makespector do, and
the deci-
sion right then and
there. Some see
50 houses before
choosing.

What does a home
inspector do, and.
how does an inspec-
tion figure in the,
purchase of a home?
A home inspector is
a neutral player in
the home purchase
process. They can
provide you with a
Four Point Inspection
Report that covers

Keystone Real Estate, Inc.

electrical, plumbing,
heating/air condi-
tioning and the roof.
They will advise you
of any problems you
may not have seen
which gives you the
opportunity to get
quotes for repair.

Usually there is
a 15 day inspection
period. This figures
in the purchase of the
home because you
have the right to back
out of the contract
during this period.
