Festival has deep, distant roots


Saturday. Orange
By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Frostproof's Saturday shindig will
bring antique cars and tractors down-
town, not to mention a few thousand
people who will marvel at the vintage
machines.
But the Orange Blossom Festival,
which will feature the cars and all kinds
of vendors, food and music and runs
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., has its roots many
years ago and quite a distance away.
The current event has its genesis
in the work of Bob O'Hara or O'Hara
Restorations, which relocated in
Frostproof from Florida's southwest
coast around 2000.
- "This event started 25 years ago in
Naples as an informal gathering to thank
our customers and suppliers," O'Hara
said. "Most of the customers came with
their cars. It just grew from that begin-
ning. When we moved to Frostproof we
continued the informal meet"


Blossom event downtown will bring cars
O'Hara was just last fall named ..
Frostproof's Man of the Year, in large .'.- -
part for his efforts in growing the (
festival to its current size and scope.
Again this year, for example, the
Florida Flywheelers will have their an-
nual Antique Tractor Drive in conjunc-
tion with the festival.
In the beginning, however, not ev-
eryone downtown was a fan of O'Hara's
event.
"Some of the restaurants complained
that we were taking all the parking,"
he remembered. It didn't take long for
the eateries to change their minds.
"As it worked out they were sold out
completely before noon. Even after the
minor lumps it continued to grow and
the event has really blossomed into
something extra-special."
While the parade kind of kicks things
off, most of the vehicles will stay for the
length of the event, giving festival-


and crowds

Closing gun

'loophole'

By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Polk County commissioners will
not do anything to close a loophole
that allows the sale of firearms
between private parties at gun shows
in the county.
The request to do so was made
by Arthur Hayhoe at the Tuesday,
Feb. 5, regular commission meeting.
Hayhoe, of Wesley Chapel, is the
director of the Florida Coalition to
Stop Gun Violence, which he said
is the only organization in the state
addressing the issue of gun control.
"I'm here specifically today to ask
you folks to put it on your agenda,
so that everyone gets the chance to

VIEWPOINT,



Public/private partnership would work better


Over in Tampa, citizens particularly citizens
who own small businesses got all riled up over a
proposal to spend $6.25 million in tax money to. sub-
sidize the construction of a Bass Pro Shops megastore
in the Brandon area.
They drew little consolation from the fact that the
original proposal was $15 million, and was reduced
first to $8.25 million, then to "only" $6.25 million.
At issue is the murky principle of concurrency,
the concept that before a major development can
take place, roads and other infrastructure must be in
place.
Practically everybody thinks that is a good idea ...
as long as somebody else pays for it.
It's not quite as simple as the county writing a
check to the franchise or to'the developer of the retail
complex which it would anchor.
But the facts, simplified for easier understanding,
are these:
If the development is to be built, at least $6.25 mil-
lion in highway improvements must be made.
Without the $6.25 million in highway construc-
tion, the store will not be built.
And without the development, the $6.25 million
in improvements are not needed. (The road project is
not even in the county's long-range plan.1
So opponents who say the expenditure would be
made to subsidize development are right on the
money.

Over in Pinellas County, baseball's Tampa Bay Rays
are insisting that the county allow them out of a
multi-year contract under which tax funds were used
to build a stadium for the team.
Major League Baseball now says it was built in
the wrong place. Whose fault that is may be subject


Our Viewpoint
to debate, but presumably somebody noticed the
location as it was being built. It was not fabricated in
a mobile home factory and moved in overnight.
. Bottom line: Millions of taxpayer dollars were spent
to build a stadium in which millionaire team owners
pay players millions of dollars a year to play baseball,
and now the owners want out of their end of the deal:
to play baseball in it.

One might ask why local governments entertain the
idea of spending millions of dollars in tax funds to
build improvements for the benefit of multi-million-
dollar enterprises, be they national retailers or sports
franchises.
And the answer appears to be "because everybody
else is doing it."
Parents are familiar with that argument from their
children, and most of them don't buy it.
We believe stewards of public funds should follow
their example.
It is doubly absurd that small business owners, who
never got a dime in tax money when they put their
life's savings into a small enterprise and may not be
able to withstand competition from the megastores,
are paying the very taxes used for such incentives.

There are better approaches.
One of the simplest is for local governments to
become proactive in assisting new businesses large
or small in navigating the labyrinth of permits
and approvals required by government ... to remove
obstacles to development.
Assisting customers and potential customers is the


way the private sector works, and taxpayers are owed
the same courtesy from the public sector.
Another approach, used successfully in the neigh-
boring city of Bartow for years, is to use Community
Redevelopment Agency funds to provide assistance
and incentives, primarily to small retailers, the type
of business that is the lifeblood of small-town Main
Street, USA.
Several approaches have been used over the years.
One is facade grants to help existing enterprises as
well as new businesses spruce up the appearance of
their stores.
Another program that proved successful offered
start-up assistance over a limited time to help new
,businesses become established.
That program has helped several small entrepre-
neurs fill a row of vacant stores by offering low rents
initially.
In each case, recipients of assistance were required
to meet certain criteria, such as hours of operation.
To the best of our recollection, not a single business
helped through this approach has put an established
enterprise out of business.
The programs of the CRA are an example of how
success breeds success. Successful businesses
bring about higher property tax revenues, which,
under the CRA model, are plowed back into further
improvements.
Bartow's approach has generated public sup-
port and little controversy. It helps those who need
help, not those who threaten to take their business
elsewhere if they are not given the keys to the public
treasury.
Development incentives like those mentioned
above, in our opinion, are vastly better than throwing
millions of dollars at millionaires.


Marketing lesson #1:

Know whom you're pitching


American Motors Corp. had a little
image problem with one of its cars
starting about 1970 and made a market-
ing decision similar to what the state of
Florida has done with its new business-
promotion sales pitch.
The company wanted to sell cars to
young men, just when the name of its
AMC Rebel was taking on some unsa-
vory connotations in the civil rights era.
So AMC redesigned the car and called it
the Matador, hoping for a Hemingway-
esque aura of the macho conqueror
who stands alone in the center of the
ring, cheered by everyone except PETA.
Unfortunately, in bullfighting, that
word means "the one who kills" and
the Matador came out right around the
time consumers were starting to de-
mand more safety features. There were
some amused commentaries about
AMC's supposed advertising gaffe.
But Madison Avenue knew what it
was doing. The nameplate received
research, test-marketing and design
to catch the fancy of shoppers in the
Mustang, Charger and GTO market a
niche that doesn't exactly suggest mom
and the kids running down to the mall.
(Oh, and AMC did bring out a family-
friendly version of the marque, too,
even a station wagon.) That's like what
happened last week with Enterprise


Bill Cotterell

ll~hss


Florida's new "business brand." As
you're probably aware, Gov. Rick Scott
and the state's industrial-development
strategists introduced a green and
orange symbol that says "FLORIDA,"
written above the slogan, "The perfect
climate for business."
That would be unremarkable, except
that the letter "I" in the state's name
is drawn like a necktie. Compounding
this alleged affront was a minute-long
YouTube video about Florida commerce
featuring, almost entirely, andro-Ameri-
cans in various business settings with
a male voice-over touting the state's
business attractions.
Such details didn'tjust happen. Just
as AMC knew not everyone associates
"Matador" with death, the ad mavens
for Enterprise Florida probably know.
a tropical orange neck tie does not say
"men only."


But for Scott's critics, it was what
political strategists call a dog whistle -
a buzz word, a wink and a nod meant
to reassure a target audience. They
pounced.
Not only was the necktie a symbol of
male hegemony, they said, the pro-
motional campaign had been hatched
mostly by a company in Nashville. With
no sense of irony, they demanded to
know why Enterprise Florida did busi-
ness out of state.
Just a guess, but perhaps when devis-
ing a sales strategy to attract companies
from other states, Florida doesn't want
to say we want their business, but they


needn't bid on ours.
But it was the necktie-styled letter "I"
that drew the most heat.
Former Florida CFO Alex Sink, the
Democrat who lost the 2010 race for
governor to Scott, had her Florida Next
foundation publish a satire poster
headlined "Ditch the Tie," above a pair
of sunglasses with a sunny reflection
of Florida palm trees. Sink is widely
considered a candidate for a rematch
with Scott next year and, if she runs,
we'll surely hear more about this.

a dent in helping to solve mass shootings.
And, some say that solving the prob-
lem has to come from the community
and not the government.
"I think it's a mistake that the govern-
ment needs to solve this problem," Polk
County Sheriff Grady Judd said. "The
people (in the communities) need to
solve this."
And, Cassey St. John, a Bartow High
School graduate who now lives in
Fairbanks, Alaska, an area that has a
lot of hunters, said, "Not one thing can
solve this. There's a culmination ... we've
become desensitized to crime in our
culture. Look at what is popular in the
films."
The conversation has come more to
the forefront since the massacre at the
elementary school in Newtown, Conn.,
in December. This week the Polk County
Commission hesitated on voting to
close the background loophole at gun
shows here after hearing citizen after
citizen talk against any legislation. And,
also this week, police in California went
on a manhunt for Christopher Dorner,
a former Los Angeles police officer and
Navy reservist, believed to have killed
one police officer and injured two oth-
ers in Riverside, Calif.
St. John is concerned about her chil-
dren's safety as she has three children in
public-schools, and while armed police
officers in the schools doesn't make
her uneasy, it's how to handle it that
concerns her.,
"It probably doesn't matter (what
Congress does), maybe it's the environ-
ment," she said. She said school boards
and other government agencies can
talk about what should be done, but the
reaction from parents has to be para-
mount and you "have to proceed with
it thought out and consider the pros
and cons of what is appropriate for that
(community's) structure."

People: Background
checks helpful
People feel increased background
checks may solve a problem that some
people who should not have guns won't


get them, but in fighting mass shootings
the evidence from the number of mass
shootings that have happened increased
checks wouldn't have stopped them.
"It may prevent some shootings," said
Rick Hodges. "In Connecticut the boy
went to get his mom's gun and she had
the right to own one."
However, one gun shop owner said in
doing background checks that may not
be so. If there is someone in the house-
hold that may not allow a person to own
a firearm.
Lamar Collins, who owns Hal's Gun
Supply on Davidson Street in Bartow,
said three things should be done to
make background checks more effec-
tive. There needs to be a list of guns.
Anyone with a Florida Firearms License
has to have a storefront, which he said
will not be popular among FFL hold-
ers, and make promoters liable. That is
supposed to be the case, but it doesn't
happen all the time, he said.
He said the way background checks
are now in Florida it is gun dealers who
are being punished while those who do
not have FFL licenses and criminals can
too: easily get a gun through transac-
tions. He said the waiting period of
three days in Florida doesn't speak to
anything in the Second Amendment on
gun ownership but it does hurt legiti-
mate businesses while others who sell
guns don't have to deal with it.
And, most people who have criminal
intentions when purchasing a gun can
still get guns easily. He gave an example:
'A guy came in here and he was nicely
dressed," he said. "I did a background
check" and the FDLE determined he
couldn't own a gun. "You know what the
first thing that came out of his mouth?
I'll go to a gun show. That's where the
loophole has to be closed. I'm not for
gun control, I'm for criminal control."
Collins said he has spoken with
county commissioners for years about
background checks but he hasn't gotten'
anywhere. Doing background checks
costs a gun shop a little extra money -
the price of envelopes and stamps to the
FDLE and storage area for transaction
records as well, of course of rent, utility
bills and other things about owning a
store but promoters should be liable
for guns. The transaction involving a
firearm is different from buying most
items because of the danger factor that


can be involved.
"Any transaction has to have a back-
ground check," he said.
The idea, which came up at the
county commission meeting from one
protestor Tuesday, that people won't
come to gun shows in Polk County is
silly, he said. A majority of the people
who go to gun shows are doing so to
find cheaper guns and they don't travel
a long way to do it. He said they're not
staying in hotels here and "Polk County
is making money on the sales tax. You
can't set up at a craft show without sales
tax paper."
Anna McLeroy, the co-owner of MC
Gunsmithing with her husband in Fort
Meade, felt the same way. People who go
togun shows are looking for bargains,
she said.
And, while people with FFL licenses
have to have storefronts, there are still
many who are operating out of their
homes and can skirt the law and the
government may not have noticed they
don't have a store, though that is the law.
That was the case with the McLeroys.
Selling guns for about 35 years they
operated from their house from the
early 1980s until 1997 when the FDLE
told them that in order for them to
continue to hold their license they had
to get a store.
However, making background checks
more strict is a tough road to travel,
McLeroy said.
"I don't know how to make it stricter,"
she said. "There are questions there.
There's a question (on the background
form) now about being mentally
affected, about child abuse and there's
one on felonies," she said, adding that
probably the best thing to do is 'leave
it like it is. Government is probably not
going to do it, but it would be better to
do (background checks) on everybody."

Whether Congress
will do something
The government hearings on gun
legislation on Capitol Hill have shown
that their hands are relatively tied. In a
CBS News/New York Times poll taken in
mid-January, 92 percent of Americans
favored universal background checks
and in households with NRA members,
85 percent favored universal back-
ground checks. However, in testimony


before Congress, NRA president Wayne
LaPierre has been against more back-
ground checks and Congress appears to
be heading nowhere. Instead, a political
battle between parties rises and the
tragedies that started the conversation
are overshadowed.
U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland,
objected to the 23 executive orders
President Obama put into his gun legis-
lation, many of which called for studies
to get numbers of ownership and for
mental health patients.
"That has more to do with the style
of leadership of the president. It's done
more to divide us than bring us to-
gether," he said.
He added Diane Feinstein, a
Democratic congresswoman from
California, filed a bill and he said
Congress has to debate "because we
owe it to the American people," but
guns are mainly a conduit for carrying
out violent acts. "If it's not a gun it can
be a baseball bat," Ross said, citing there
are other objects that can cause the
same kind of damage.
And, that may be the reason why
communities have to take up their own
measures in reference to guns and how
each act. One community is bigger on
hunting than other communities and
not all can be treated the same way.
Increasing background cheeks could
certainly be helpful in some respects,
but to have to help solve mass shoot-
ings, Tim Jones doesn't believe it will
work.
"I don't know if that's a cure, but how
can you be against it?" he said.
Hodges then chimed in, "I don't think
there's one answer but limiting back-
ground checks to get a gun can only
help security, but we've all got to get
together to help eliminate it," he said.
Judd said something has to be done
and we can't continue in the same
pattern because more mass violence
will happen, but it should be up to the
people who live here.
"If you pay attention to who has
access to firearms and those who have
mental illness," we may be able to
accomplish something. "Can we stop
it completely?" he asked. Probably not,
he said, but added he felt something
can eventually get done if we're willing
to put forth the effort.
"The mistake is do nothing," he said.

entrepreneurs," said the green script
on the Florida Next poster. "We are
diverse. We are modem. Ditch the tie &
join us."
Sink's satire bounded around
Facebook and other social media for
days. But while calling attention to the
necktie in the Enterprise Florida piece,


it missed the message of the new busi-
ness brand.
That reference to "the perfect busi-
ness climate" is meant two ways.
With sledge hammer subtlety, it
reminds companies that moving to
Florida means they won't have to
budget a certain number of snow days
for lost production. And it says the
Republicans have been happily giving
away the treasury with corporate tax
breaks, port deepening and repeal of
business regulations the better to


"perfect" Florida's commercial climate.
Even the type face is casual, suggest-
ing the relaxed air of a resort, rather
than a stuffy Wall Street boardroom.
The YouTube video clip features some
big city skylines, but ends with a guy,
on a beach checking out Florida on an
e-tablet.
But if the state fears its new business
brand will offend too many people who
wouldn't vote for Scott at gunpoint
anyway, there's only one thing to do.
Enterprise Florida could keep the "I"


drawn as a necktie (too late to untie
that now) but append a little cross to
the bottom of the "0" the universally
recognized mark of Venus.
Or it could double down, and add an
upright arrow at about 2 o'clock on that
circle. That would really get some buzz
going.

LOOPHOLE
FROM PAGE 1

called the loophole a very strange
item because counties have the abil-
ity to regulate closing the loophole
at the local level.
"I think we are the only state
that we have the ability to do this
because we passed a ballot initia-
tive some years ago that allows each
county commission to make that
decision."
The problem, as Hayhoe said
he saw it, regarding private sales
conducted at gun shows was that
such sales generate no registration
of buyer, seller or firearmss. He
also informed commissioners that
currently there are only two laws on
the books in Florida regarding gun'
control.
One is the gun show loophole,
and the other is a three-day waiting
period. He said that House Bill 45,
which he claimed was sponsored
by the National Rifle Association,
all local gun control laws had been
"destroyed." In a nutshell, HB 45
prevents communities from enact-
ing local gun control laws; that only
the state has the right to determine
such.
"We are, in effect, a state without
any gun control laws, except the two
I just mentioned," he said. Hayhoe
said he was willing to stand for any
questions the commissioners had,
but no one on the board spoke.
However, the public did, and in
numbers.
A total of eight people stepped up
to the podium, all of them in oppo-
sition to Hayhoe, starting with Pete
Smith, of Lake Alfred.
"I'm a law-abiding citizen. Gun
control only affects law-abiding
citizens," said Smith. "It does not
affect the criminals, who could care
less. Gun control provides a safe
environment for the criminals."
His may have been the gentlest of
all statements. More than one per-
son raised the Second Amendment,
and the belief gun control laws not
only were an infringement of their
rights as citizens, but a further ero-
sion of the freedoms the Founding
Fathers intended when the U.S.
Constitution was drawn.
Harry Sharpe, also of Lake
Alfred, said that recent measures
by legislatures and the courts had
chipped away freedom of speech
and religion. Due to the Patriot
Act, so too had thdie right to habeas
corpus. (Habeas corpus is a writ
that is used to bring a party who has
been criminally convicted in state
court into federal court. Usually,,
writs of habeas corpus are used to .
review the legality of the party's
arrest, imprisonment, or detention.


(Source: Cornell University Law
School) Sharpe said if the county
did close the loophole it would be to
little effect.
"If the law passes, people will sim-
ply go to surrounding counties. This
will only serve to inconvenience and
harass law-abiding citizens," Sharpe
said.
Glenn Smith, who identified
himself as a former deputy sheriff
with Levy County, recited a list
of what consequences and costs
might entail, such as (he claimed)
background checks that would be
entered into a federal database, as
well as the necessity of law enforce-
ment to inventory every gun in
the U.S. Smith, who exceeded the
three-minute time limit but was not
interrupted by the BOCC, concluded
his remarks, stating that Chicago
has the most gun control laws of any
city yet is the "murder capitol of the
U.S." He also said if the BOCC went
forth closing the loophole that it
could count on a lawsuit being filed.
Sporadic applause rang out follow-
ing his remarks, as it would a second
time following remarks by Col. (Ret.)
Royal A. Brown III, of Winter Haven,
who disparaged the mass media.
"To my knowledge, none of the
guns used in any of the tragic mass
murders of late came from gun
shows, but rather were obtained il-
legally and used by unstable people
with mental conditions," asserted
Brown. "I'm sure you would agree
with me had any of the gun control
loving mass media had been able to
find out if any of these guns came
from gun shows, they would have let
us know."
Following the last person to speak,
Commissioner George Lindsey
called for a decision to be made and
asked whether fellow commissioners
felt likewise. Commissioner Edwin V.
Smith said the issue was premature
and suggested tabling it.
Lindsey disagreed.
"The times are ripe for this," he
said. "Anxieties are fever-pitched."
It was not enough to sway the
BOCC.
"There's no reason to create angst
in our community about this,"
voiced Commissioner John Hall.
"Let's wait and see what our federal
government does." Both Bell who
earlier stated her feeling that state
laws had to be abided concurred,
as did Commissioner Todd Dantzler.
"I'm not hearing the great swell
of support to do anything," said
Dantzler. "So I'm ready to move on
to the next agenda item."

COUNTY B


Stewart spells out hopes, concerns for schools



Interim superintendent featured guest at Tiger Bay luncheon


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Members of the Tiger Bay Club of
Polk County unable to attend Monday's
Feb. 10 luncheon missed out on the op-
portunity to hear John Stewart, interim
Polk County Schools System superinten-
dent. Before a sparse crowd estimated
between 20-25 people (excluding the
media), Stewart held forth on a number
of issues of concern to the school system
and Polk County residents.
He launched his presentation by
rhetorically asking his audience what
did they believe mattered most when it
comes to teaching students.
"The most important thing in educa-
tion today is not graduation rates, not
test scores and not funding," he said.
Important as they are, those are only
components, he said. "The most impor-
tant thing in education today is early
childhood education."
His question whether anyone was
familiar with the term "sofa surfer"
drew little response, perhaps one or two
hands were raised, prompting Stewart
to explain the term referred to a student
who is homeless, who "crashes" in the
homes of others.
"What chance does that youngster
have being successful in life?" challenged
Stewart. Not only were the chances very
poor, the situation did not get better as
the years pass. Again he emphasized the
key rested with early childhood educa-
tion, and pointed out the dire conse-
quences of not being prepared. "The
same number of students not ready to
learn is the same percentage that won't


graduate."
By the time children enter kindergar-
ten, they need to know basic shapes and
colors, as well as know some letters of the
alphabet and numbers. They also need
to know how to sit in their seats. Those
who are not "equipped" also have few or
no social skills, and much of this has to
come from parents and family.
Stewart would come back to this topic
during the question and answer session.
.He cited a study in which fathers were
questioned how much time they spend
with their pre-school children. Most
fathers believed they spent between
30-60 minutes per day. In actuality
fathers spent to to three minutes per day.
Before relinquishing the floor to
questioning, Stewart spoke also on
school safety. Earlier Monday, an inci-
dent occurred in which a man Stewart
termed deranged, entered Oscar J. Pope
Elementary School in Eaton Park, and
attacked the principal; the man was later
identified as Elester ludell, and the prin-
cipal he struck was Qvonda Birdsong.
Stewart is against arming teachers. Too
many things could go wrong, he said, if
you don't have qualified personnel, and
those most qualified are law enforce-
ment. To address the issue, Stewart
said Sheriff Grady Judd was working
with Greg Bondurant, the Director of
Safe Schools for Polk County Schools
System to deal with safety, "and they are
enormous."
Not everything discussed was of a
somber note. Among the questions,
submitted, most likely by someone of a
certain older age, regarded the so-called
"permanent record," especially when it


OfP 0

,..










came to discipline. Stewart confessed
there is no such thing as a permanent
record and never has been. Turning
serious, he did say that when it comes to
discipline, there is a record kept, but only
for the school term.
While Stewart has made strides since
taking over on an interim basis, such
as resolving the long-standing dispute
between Lakeland High School and
Harrison School for the Arts "We all
wanted to work together because we
decided to put the children's interests
first before the adults'" he confessed
to goals unattained. Throughout his
career he has strived for proficiency at
grade level in reading and mathematics.
"Thus far I have not attained my goal,"
he said. "It's my biggest challenge and my
biggest frustration."

Other questions touched
upon teacher evaluations, charter
schools, as well as career academies and
magnet schools. Stewart also had words
of praise for County Commissioner
Melony Bell getting a career academy
in Fort Meade, as well as for John Small,
who oversees the career academies.
Stewart called Small a "treasure." He
wisely sidestepped answering whether a
return to electing the school superinten-
dent was preferred rather than sticking
with the current policy of appointing
one.
The luncheon drew to a close with a
question asking Stewart what he would
do or wish if he had a magic wand.
"It would be to give every child in
America a loving father and mother," he
said.


Polk TPO honored with Awards at Heart of Florida meeting


The Polk transportation Planning
Organization was presented with two
Awards of Merit at the 2013 Heart of Florida
American PlanningAssociation's meeting.
The TPO received anAward of Merit
in the category of Master Planning and
Urban Design for its implementation of
a Complete Streets program and the Jan
Johnson Public Involvement Award for its
participation in helping create the MyRide
public transit initiative.
The awards were handed out as part of
a luncheon hosted by HOF at the Woman's
Club ofWinter Haven on Feb. 1.
The Complete Streets program is the
TPOs strategic effort to help ensure that
streets are built and updated to accommo-
date all types of users, including walkers,
bikers, transit riders and motorists. In
October mayors and/or representatives
from all 17 Polk County municipalities, and
a representative from the county, signed
a declaration of intent to utilize Complete
Streets techniques withinth e physical and
fiscal constraints of their communities.
The MyRide plan was launched by Polk
Transit last year, in partnership with the
TPO, as an effort to reach out to residents
throughout Polk County to find out what
kind of transit services would benefit them.
The results of the study and intensive pub-
lic outreach sessions include new routes
and services that continue to be rolled out.

assistance effort, which provides profes-
sional consultation, entrepreneurial
training and resources to small startup and
mature businesses, will become a stand-
alone entity with a new business model
that more closely reflects the needs of the
county's business community.
For the past 16 years, Polk County has
had a relationship with the Florida Small
Business Development Center Network at
the University of South Florida.
"Polk County's small business assistance
effort will undergo transition while the '
CFDC determines what programs will best
address the needs of our business com-
munity," said Mary Jane Stanley, interim
director, of the CFDC. "We will continue
our relationships with our cities, chambers
of commerce and business leaders as we
go through this process, and we will work


jointly with the FSBDC to provide our
community partners a seamless transition
of services."
The FSBDC will continue to serve Polk
County's small business community
through personnel in the Tampa office,
according to Eileen Rodriguez, regional di-
rector for FSBDC. The CFDC will continue
to offer seminars, marketing assistance and
financial guidance with the same present
county staff. No jobs will be eliminated in
the transition.

Norris soaring for Eagles, set to continue career at Stetson


Polk State College pitcher Trey
Norris of Frostproof has been a
valuable contributor to the Eagles'
early success this spring, and has
already decided to keep his pitching
talents in state next fall when he is
signed to join the Stetson Hatters.
The defending state champion
Eagles are ranked third in the Feb. 5,
FCSAA/state poll with a 8-1 record
through Feb. 9.
Norris, a sophomore, has been
right in the thick of the action,
which includes three dramatic,
come-from-behind victories and
a win over No. 1-ranked Santa Fe
College.
Norris is the team's closer who
has picked up where he left off in
2012. Norris finished last season
with a 3-0 record and four saves. He
gave up 21 hits over 33 innings for a
2.18 ERA. He also struck out 36 and
walked just four.
"He did a great job for us last
year," said Polk State College coach
Al Corbeil. "He really came on the
second half of the spring and pitched
some big innings for us. This year we
expected him to shut the door for us.
So far he's been doing that."
Plus, Norris pitched in state
tournament pressure last year as the
Eagles captured their first state title
and advanced to the NJCAA World
Series in Colorado in May.
Norris has picked up victories '
over Palm Beach State College and


Daytona State. He also earned saves
over Indian River State, St. Johns
and Santa Fe on Wednesday..
His live fastball, clocked in the
low 90s, is his main weapon. He's
also been working on two second-
ary pitches. Although he decided
on Stetson, he also had offers from
Florida Southern, University of
South Florida, Southern Alabama
and the University of Tampa.
"He's got a good breaking ball
and developed a split-finger fast-
ball in the fall that's become an
extra weapon that he's using now,"
Corbeil said.
Through Saturday's 4-2 victory
over Seminole State in which he
earned his fifth save, Norris is 2-0
with a 1.29 ERA over seven innings.
He comes in when the heat is on.
The Eagles have won four, one-run
games. Polk also defeated Indian
River State College by a 2-0 score
and Seminole State 4-2 on Saturday.
With games that close, Norris has
shown success and maturity.
"In all the games that are close like
that, you feel one hit or one pitch
can change a game," said Corbeil. "I
feel good giving Trey the ball know-
ing the situation. It's been fun to
watch him mature as a player."
This past summer, he also pitched
for the Leesburg Lightning of the
Florida Collegiate Summer League,
where he led the loop in saves with
12 while posting an ERA of 2.70.


PHOTOS PROVIDED
Of all the impressive stats former Frostproof Bulldg Trey Norris posted for Polk State College last
spring, the best one was fanning 36 while walking just four all season as the Eagles doser.


"He will step into our bullpen and
make a huge impact right away. Trey
is extremely athletic, has a great
arm and a plus pitch in his breaking
ball," Stetson Baseball Coach Pet
Dunn said. "He is also a very good
student who will represent the base-
ball program well in the classroom.


We are looking forward to getting
Trey into the Hatter fold next year."
Norris said there were several '
reasons the Hatters were his choice.
"I liked the small town atmo-
sphere, the coaching staff and the
tradition of winning for the Stetson
baseball program," Norris said.


Norris led the Florida College Summer League with 12 saves last year for the Leesburg Lightning.

Polk State Lake Wales Arts Center open for classes


The Polk State College Lake
Wales Arts Center is officially
open, allowing residents of the
area to study in a one-of-a-kind
setting under the direction of
expert faculty members.
And the excitement of these
early days at the Center will
only grow in coming weeks, as
work to improve the building is
completed.
"This building, long before


it came under the scope of
Polk State College, was a hub
for creativity and arts activity
in the Lake Wales commu-
nity. Polk State is honored
and pleased to continue that
tradition for the residents of
southeast Polk County," said
Polk State President Eileen
Holden.
"Careful structural improve-
ments are being made and


we've brought in incredibly
talented faculty members to
teach our students. The result
is a beautiful, exciting and truly
special place to learn."
In late 2011, the College and
the Lake Wales Arts Council
announced an innovative
collaboration that involved the
College accepting title to the
Lake Wales Arts Center. In ex-
change for the 1920s building,


which has been renamed the
Polk State College Lake Wales
Arts Center, the College agreed
to renovate and maintain the
facility.
Those renovations, meant to
enhance the building's struc-
tural integrity and functionality
without visually altering the
historic character, began last
summer.
The building's gallery


was unchanged, but its two
classrooms have received
cosmetic upgrades, including
new flooring and paint. Both
classrooms are also now outfit-
ted with modern instructional
technology.
The building's bathrooms
have also been remodeled to
meet code requirements and

Polk State Theatre will present"Anna in the Tropics" beginning Feb. 6. Director Ilene Fins is pictured here in Ybor City, the setting
of the play.


'Anna' at Polk

Polk State Theatre presents 'Anna in the Tropics'


Polk State Theatre delves into
Central Florida's rich Cuban
culture for its spring performance,
staging the Pulitzer Prize-winning,
'Anna in the Tropics," a selection
that offers actors and audi-
ences alike a unique theatrical
experience.
"This is a very intimate perfor-
mance, the subject matter has
moments of intensity and the
language is poetic. The audience
and actors will be in close proxim-
ity to one another. Depending on
what your theatre-going experi-
ence has been, it may be unlike
anything else you've ever seen,"
said Director Ilene Fins.
The play, written by Nilo Cruz
and winner of the 2003 Pulitzer for
drama, is set in 1929, in an Ybor
City cigar factory a fictional


version of the many cigar factories
that once lined the community's
streets. Its cast of characters in-
cludes Conchita, an unhappy wife
married to the adulterous Palomo;
Santiago and Ofelia, the factory
owners; and Cheche, a worker
whose share of the factory grows
with each gambling debt he covers
for Santiago.
It is against this backdrop that
the play's lector, Juan Julian, is
introduced. Lectors were often
brought into cigar factories and
paid from workers' wages to'
read, breaking up the monotony of
the hand-rolling process.
Juan chooses for his reading
material Leo Tolstoy's adultery-
ridden "Anna Karenina." The novel
provides perfect juxtaposition
for the struggles the workers


face throughout the play from
assimilating to American culture,
to the move toward mechanizing
cigar-making and the rise of the
cigarette, to their own relationship
problems.
"Anna in the Tropics" follows a
landmark performance for Polk
State Theater in "Richard III," its
first Shakespearean tragedy and
the largest, most elaborate pro-
duction in department history.
While "Anna in the Tropics"
is smaller-scale in numerous
ways, not the least of which is an
alley-inspired set design that will
allows for only about 100 seats a

In many ways, Ryan Darley has lived two
lives.
He served as a sergeant in the U.S. Army,
completing two tours in Iraq, seeing and
risking things that most people can't even
imagine.
But now he's a student at Polk State, nearing
the completion of his Associate in Arts degree,
leading the Honors Program, and working in
Enrollment Services & Outreach all roles
that are about as far from the front lines as he
could get.
Yet, though his military career is finished,
and while Iraq must seem a different world
compared to a college that has become a
second home, Darley is still a soldier at heart.
And one day, all the work he's doing as
a student, he hopes, will make it easier for
his fellow veterans to come home, to get an
education, and hit the "restart buttons" on
their own lives.

From Illinois to Iraq

Darley, 26, spent much of his childhood in
Polk City, but graduated from high school in
Illinois, where he watched on TV as America
entered wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
With every news report, every image of ser-
vicemen and women defending the country
on foreign soil, Darley knew he had to join
them.
"I knew there was a war on and it didn't feel
right not doing my part," he said.
Darley, it seems, was simply born to be a
soldier. His dad had served in the Marine


Corps though Darley doesn't think that's
what influenced his decision to enlist.
Watching the soldiers on TV, he just knew
deep down that he belonged beside them, that
they and the country needed him.
"I didn't want to be 10 years in my future,
trying to explain a war that I didn't fight," he
said.
At 19, he left his family, his friends, girlfriend
- a life headed, he said, for a "picket fence" -
and joined the Army.
Darley's first tour of service in Iraq was
2005-2007, his second from 2009-2010.
He discusses both periods of time cautious-
ly, but what it all comes to is this: Going to war
changes someone in a multitude of ways that
can't be undone.
"In Iraq, everyday you're above ground is a
good day," he said.
When he returned home his family had
resettled in Polk County while he was in the
service and he now lives in Auburndale he
spent a year feeling lost.
It was difficult to return to a life filled with
trivial problems cars not starting, a bad
day at work. He couldn't be in large crowds
of people, like at Wal-Mart. He'd spent years
taking orders and now he was just drifting,
not sure what to do next. Even worse, very few
people understood what he was feeling -un-
less they've served, most people can't.
"I was an alien in my own country. That was
strange," he said.
At the end of that first year back, he knew he
had two choices: continue to drift-- a choice
that would only get harder to undo with each
passing day or go to school.
He chose the latter, enrolling at Polk State.

Pressing the restart button

With his military educational benefits,
Darley certainly had plenty of options for his
higher education. But when he visited Polk
State, he felt welcome, like this was a place
that could help him find his way.
"I walked into Student Services and
(Enrollment Services and Out reach
Coordinator) Matina Wagner made me feel
like.I was the only person on campus. She
helped me get into classes and walked me
through the whole process. She made me feel

complexity, Fins said.
For example, Fins said, the play
deals with infidelity, but not the typical
soap-opera brand with clear villains
and heroes.
"We want to see things as black and.
white, but the infidelity in 'Anna in the
Tropics' has many grey areas. Empathy
and infidelity are two concepts rarely
associated with one another, but the
play forces you to consider the love
triangle from all points of view, to
understand why the characters do the
things they do, rather than simply pass
judgment," she said.


In addition to the emotional insights
actors and audiences gain, Fins said
students and audiences alike will likely
walk away from the play with a trans-
formed appreciation for Ybor City.
Fins and members of her produc-
tion team and the cast have visited
Ybor in recent months, touring the
Ybor City Museum, seeing for them-
selves cigar-rolling tables and the
shotgun-style houses where workers
lived. They've reveled in the area's
architecture and enjoyed its cuisine
- all of which will help them pep-
per the performance with an aura of
authenticity.
"I didn't have any idea how impor-
tant Ybor City was to the economy
of Tampa and what a huge impact it
made on the whole area," Fins said.


Polk State Theatre Producer Paul
Carbonell selected the play for this
year's performance schedule.
"This year, we got an influx of
students with Hispanic backgrounds
in the Theatre Department. I knew we
had people who would understand
the culture behind the story," he said.
For both Carbonell and Fins, '"Anna
in the Tropics" gets to their shared
passion of increasing literacy through
drama. "Anna Karenina," published
in the late 1800s, weaves a love affair
with Russian politics and religion,
making for a daunting read.
But the play offers students and
audiences an easier, roundabout ap-
proach to the landmark novel.
Fins wouldn't be surprised if audi-
ences go home and decide to read


"Anna Karenina" for themselves, espe-
cially in light of the recently released
film version.
"This is a great vehicle for increasing
literacy. I hope it inspires people to
read Anna Karenina' and rediscover
Tolstoy," she said.

"Anna in the Tropics" will play at
the Polk State Winter Haven Fine Arts
Theatre, located on the campus of Polk
State Winter Haven, 999 Ave. H N.E.
Show dates are Feb. 13-15. All shows are

Polk State students hit the


water with new fishing club


Polk State College consistently under-
scores the institution's "perfect fit" with
the region it serves, and the newest club
at Polk certainly fits a county with well
over 500 lakes perfectly.
Polk State College anglers and
business majors Austin Bell, 20,
Forrest Greenfield, 19, both of
Winter Haven, compet-
ed in a tournament on
Lake Okeechobee in January a
as charter members of the new
Polk State College Bass Fishing t
Team.
"We're glad to have the op-
portunity to fish and represent
the school as best we can,"
Greenfield said.
The club was char-
tered in September.
It's the first com-
petitive club among
the College's Student
Activities and Leadership Organization's
(SALO) 25 clubs on the Winter Haven
campus, and it's one of the first sanc-
tioned fishing clubs in the state.
Polk County is recognized across
the nation as a hotbed of competitive
angling, and Bell and Greenfield are
among many Polk State students who
enjoy the sport locally.
"One of our main goals is to offer
diversity of programs," said SALO pro-
gram director Carlos Parra. "We want to"
offer something to everyone to enhance
their college experience."
The club is sanctioned through
the North American Tournament
Association, which allows the anglers to
participate in FLW events, named after
the founder of Ranger Boats, Forrest L.
Wood.
Bell and Greenfield are dreaming of
national titles particularly the Forrest
Wood Cup, which is the epitome of


fishing.
If they win the college national
championship as a team, they earn an

automatic bid into the Forrest Wood
Cup.
Ever since he was a little boy, watch-
ing college fishermen on television, Bell,
wanted to compete in college.
"I've been trying to get the club
started for over a year," Bell said. "It's
a drive. I want to qualify for the Wood
Cup."
Bell and Greenfield began their dream
in January on Lake Okeechobee in the
FLW Southeast Regional qualifier.
They hope to finish high enough in
one of the qualifying tournaments to
give them a bid into the Southeastern
Championships, which will be held late


in the spring.
The top 10 teams at the Southeastern
I Championships
in each division
qualify for the
FLW Collegiate
Nationals.
The Eagles hit the

With the big boys
-. o against
college teams
such as Auburn,
Georgia, FSU, South
Carolina and UCF on
Lake Okeechobee.
They knew the water
well, but finished 28th in
their debut.
Fishing for the two is
as natural as putting their
shoes on.
Bell fished with his
r father on Lake Echo on the South
Chain in the Lake Alfred area while
growing up.
At age 12, he joined the Lakeland
Junior Bassmasters Club. With the club,
he qualified for the state event in 2005,
taking eighth on the Winter Haven
South Chain.
In 2006, he placed third in the
state tournament on Lake Toho in
Kissimmee.
After a break from serious fishing, he
returned to the FLW in 2010.
Bell placed 52nd in the 2010 FLW
Southeast Regional on Lake Seminole in
Georgia.
He competed again in 2011 event in
South Carolina.
"I'm very competitive," he said. "If I
don't win, it makes me drive harder and
harder."

Polk basketball coach achieves Hall of Fame induction


Matt Furjanic disliked the college coach who told
him he didn't have "IT" as a basketball player.
However, Furjanic has "IT" and more as a college
coach.
Furjanic was inducted into the Pittsburgh
Basketball Club Hall of Fame on Jan. 26 in his
hometown.
The induction, the third for the Pittsburgh
Basketball Club, was not expected.
"I was surprised," said Furjanic. "It's only the third
induction class. Pittsburgh has had so many great
coaches over the years. To be the third class it's
kind of a nice feeling."
Polk State College Assistant Coach Steve Perkins
has been working with Furjanic for four seasons.

that I wasn't alone," he said.
He had a similar experience with
Polk State Winter Haven Dean of
Student Services Saul Reyes. Darley
recalled Reyes staying late on numer-
ous evenings, helping Darley collect his
handwritten, hard-to-find transcripts
from his small Illinois high school.
Since those early days, every staff
member, every instructor, he's encoun-
tered has helped him in some way.
"I saw the personal side of Polk State.
This place helped me find my way," he
said.
Wagner recalled her first exchanges
with Darley, and said the growth she's
seen in him since is remarkable.
"When I first met him, he couldn't
be around crowds of people. Can you
imagine not being able to be around
crowds and coming to the first day
of classes here? But now, he repre-
sents our College at events and other
schools. He does tours on the campus,"


she said.
Darley added that for a veteran, Polk
State's small class sizes were especially
helpful.
"At a big university, I would have
been in one of those big auditoriums
with no personal connection. I would
have felt alienated," he said. "It's the
polar opposite here. Instead of feeling
like an outsider, I feel like an integral
part of Polk State."
Darley doesn't just "feel" integral at
Polk State. He really is.
He is president of the Polk State
Winter Haven Honors Program Student
Council and serves on the board of
My Brother's Keeper, a service to help
needy students. Even just watching
him casually interact with his fellow
students, there's an obvious sense that
he is an example-setter.
Robin Savage, president of Polk State
Lakeland's Honors Program Student
Council, said she's observed Darley's
influence on other students numerous
times.
"Ryan is very persuasive and has a
lot of charm. He's had a lot of experi-
ence with leadership. I think people are


equal parts intimidated and in awe of
him," she said.
"He's in a unique position because
he is both a student and an employee
of Polk State. All his goals are about
the school, about improving the
programs. People know that when
they need something done, they can
call him."
At Polk State, Darley said he was
able to do something that eludes
many veterans in transition from the
battlefield: press the "restart but-
ton" on his life, he said. He'd always
planned on a long-term career in the
military, but at Polk State, he began to
see a new path.
He is studying for his Associate in
Arts degree and plans on continuing
for a bachelor's degree.
Ultimately, he'd like to help Polk State
expand its resources for veterans, creat-
ing a network that can help veterans
connect with one another during the
difficult transition from service to
student life.
"I'm the exception, not the rule. Most
veterans struggle in a lot of different
areas. They're lost, floating, just waiting


for people to show them what to do,
waitingfor someone to give them an
order," he said. "Independence after
the military is very difficult to achieve."
His passion for helping his fellow
vets in their transition to college is one
shared by Polk State administrators,
including Student Financial Services
Director Marcia Conliffe, who has
worked to streamline and personalize
the financial aid process for veterans.
"How can you not be passionate
about helping people who have served
in the line of duty to defend our coun-
try?" said Conliffe
"It takes a special person to be a vet-
eran, and our goal is to be of assistance
to veterans every step of the way."
In helping other veterans, Darley
said, he can give back to a place that
has done so much for him.
"When I'm a part of something, I give
it everything I can," he said. "I don't
think this place will ever let me go."
Polk State's Student Financial Services
offers specialized assistance to veterans
and the College hosts several events
through the year to help veterans make
the transition to the classroom.

His dedication to Disney and the ex-

9. -Polk State College

Polk State internship program making first matches


Polk State College's new Internship
Program is making its first student-em-
ployer matches, and if the experience of
Richard Williams is any indication, it's
off to a strong start.
"I'm very impressed with the program
and how effective it was in helping me
get an internship," Williams said.
The Internship Program acts as a one-
stop matchmaking service for students
who seek real-world experience and
employers who want to bring new tal-
ent into their folds.
Students and employers alike add
their names to the College's growing
internship network about one stu-
dent and employer are signing up per
day. Then, Internship Coordinator Lynn
Chisholm helps connect the two based
on their needs, goals and interests.
A half dozen Polk State interns have
so far been matched with businesses
across the county, including Florida's
Natural and The Lakeland Center.
In the case of Williams, 23, a Lakeland


resident who is pursuing his Bachelor
of Applied Science in Supervision and
Management degree, his ultimate goal
is to become a chief financial of-
ficer. Chisholm used that detail to
connect him with an internship at
the Lakeland Family YMCA, working
under CFO Terri LePere.
Just as the Internship Program aims
to do, the Williams-YMCA match is
proving beneficial for both sides.
Williams is working three days
a week through the spring at the
Lakeland Family YMCA in South
Lakeland. During his internship, he
will shadow employees in adminis-
trative offices and human resources,
participate in meetings, observe the
process of planning fundraising and
community events, and perform
various day-to-day tasks. Along the
way, he'll gain insight into the opera-
tions of not only the Lakeland Family
YMCA, but also the broader orga-
nization, the YMCA of West Central


Florida, which includes locations
across Polk County.
"We're especially excited about the
opportunity to work with Polk State
interns because most of the College's
students are residents of Polk County
who live here and may remain here
after they graduate. By working with
Polk State, we're keeping everything
local and keeping the knowledge and
skills we impart to our interns here in
our community," LePere said.
For his part, Williams, who previously
worked as an air-conditioning mainte-
nance technician, his internship at the
YMCA is a minute-by-minute learning
experience.
"I'm learning to communicate and
connect with people. I feel really wel-
come at the YMCA, like I fit in," he said.

Internship Program, contact Chishoim:

CLASSES

have received upgraded finishes. A stu-
dent seating area has also been created'
in the lobby of the building.
The exterior of the building has been
repainted and a grassy courtyard space
has been finished with pavers and
outdoor seating, creating an inviting
gathering space for students.
Now, the focus is on the rotunda of
the building's sanctuary. Initially, the
College expected to simply replace
roofing tiles on the rotunda. As the
project got under way, however, it
became clear that the roof needed new
structural supports as well.
The work on the roof is also affect-,
ing renovations to the building's
basement to create a lecture


hall and offices.
The entire project is on track to be
finished in March.
While work continues in portions of
the building, the College has begun of-
fering credit courses in the classrooms
and gallery. Classes under way include
Design and Digital Photography.
Teaching Design is a new Polk State
hire, Holly Sailors, who most recently
worked for fashion house Chanel and
taught in New York City.
"I've always loved teaching. Teaching
is what keeps me going," said Sailors. "I
wanted to find a way to start teaching
full-time. I found out Polk was looking
for someone full-time. I grew up in a
small town and was determined at a
young age to be an artist, so I headed
for New York City. At this point in my
life, I figured I could go any-
where, so I said, 'why not.'"

and printmaker whose
paintings are also

FISHING

FROM PAGE 3
In the fall, he stepped up his game, spending a lot
of time studying lakes through topography maps, ,
weather patterns, water temperatures and lake
clarity.
Taking the advice of fellow angler Colby Cotteril,
Bell imagines himself in a lake without water and
where he would hide.
"I'm learning to think like a fish," he said.
Greenfield has been fishing competitively since his


commentaries on women's issues
and rights, grew up in western North
Carolina and holds a Master of Fine
Art from the New York Academy of
Art and a bachelor's in Fine Art from
East Carolina University. She has also
studied in Italy with the University of
Georgia, Penland School of Crafts and
at the Savannah College of Art and
Design.
Her work is in permanent collections
in Georgia, Germany and New York
City.
Sailors' teaching experience includes
work at the New York Academy of Art
and Long Island University in Brooklyn.
For all her success at the easel,
Sailors said she has always thought of
herself as equal parts artist and teacher.
"I learn just as much from my stu-
dents as they do me they just don't
know it," she said.
When she interviewed at Polk State,
two things convinced her this was the
right place for her:
"I realized there was a need for art
here. I could tell everyone was craving
it. I could also tell that the College is all
about its students and helping them
learn and working with the community
to help people have the education they
deserve," she said.
"I appreciate the education I've been
able to have and I want the students at
Polk State to have those same opportu-
nities. I will invest my time in my stu-
dents and work with them one-on-one
to expose them to as much knowledge


days at Winter Haven High School.
He finished third in the Junior Bassmasters state
event in 2010 on the Harris Chain in Leesburg.
He's got plenty of experience locally on the water
with the Winter Haven Lunker Lovers club events
and BFL tournaments.
"This is a great opportunity for us to go out and
compete with other schools," Greenfield said.
The team is sponsored by Hoppy's Marina, Angler's
Arsenal, Jethro Baits, Kissimmee Adventures, Strike
King Lures, Angler's Warehouse, Dobyn's Rods and
Quantum Reels.
The club advisors are Technology Support
Supervisor Scott Tanner and Professors of Biology


as possible for their educational path."
Teaching Photography is David
Woods, a Polk State instructor since
1989 who holds degrees from Virginia
Commonwealth University and the
Savannah College of Art and Design.
Woods has photographed presidents
and celebrities and worked as the head
photographer at amusement parks
including Cypress Gardens.
In his time at Polk State, the College
has added photography courses and
created a state-of-the-art studio and
lab space, all of which have contributed
to students receiving the education
they need to carve out viable careers in
photography. He can name numerous
students who have gone on to start
their own photography businesses.
"Our students are learning skills here
at Polk that allow them to go out and
independently support themselves.
That's huge," Woods said.
Additional credit classes includ-
ing Ceramics and Music Appreciation
- began in late January.
Polk State Winter Haven Provost
Sharon Miller said the College is
committed to the Lake Wales area and
looks forward to growing its offerings at
the Polk State College Lake Wales Arts
Center.
"We're helping to infuse the arts
deeper into this community," she said.

Anthony Cornett and Joey Maier.
With their first official meeting, the new organiza-
tion grew.
A dozen interested anglers, including two female
students, attended the first fishing team meeting at
Polk State Winter Haven's Student Center. The group
elected officers.
"I was kind of surprised," Greenfield said.
"I'm excited that the groundwork has been laid so
students who have that passion will have that option
through our office," Parra said. "It makes sense for
the area. We have more lakes than any other part of
the state. It's a great area to hit the lakes and try to
catch the big one."

County marks Hutzelman's mark in Frostproof


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
The imprint Kay Hutzelman made
upon Frostproof was not limited to
only that community, said Polk County
Commission Chairwoman Melody Bell
as the BOCC honored her at its Feb. 5
regular meeting.
N "You have been a pillar for the
county, not just Frostproof," said Bell.
In her remarks, Bell cited a number of
the achievements and contributions
Hutzelman had made throughout the
years at many levels, from private citizen
to elected leader. Hutzelman, said the
commissioner was a driving force in
restoring the Ramon Theater, active in


Relay for Life, and involved with the first
Habitat for Humanity home constructed
in Frostproof. "Polk County is a better
place because of you."
In accepting the recognition,
Hutzelman said it had been her privilege
to have served the residents of Frostproof.
"We're put here on Earth to help other
people," she said.
Before the BOCC proceeded to the
next item on its agenda, it "'sprung a
surprise" on Hutzelman, a presentation
by the Ridge League of Cities, which is
chaired by Richard Hamann, mayor of
Auburnmdale.
"It's hard to get something past Kay, but
we did it," said Hamann, much to the de-
light of Hutzelman. In his remarks, similar


to those voiced by Bell, Hamann cited the
contributions made by Hutzelman. He
called her a true servant of the people.
Hutzelman resigned as mayor on Jan. 7
as she and her husband, Paul, moved to
Nokomis on Florida's Gulf coast.
Hutzelman was the Frostproof's coun-
cil's longest tenured member, and was on
the board during some rocky financial
times in the middle of the last decade
when the city in one year ran a deficit of
some $250,000.
At the Jan. 7 council meeting, City
Manager T.R. Croley gave her a plaque
on behalf of the "city council, our staff
and the citizens of this community, with
recognition and appreciation of your
dedication, commitment, leadership


and outstanding service to the City of
Frostproof."
Vice Mayor Anne Dickinson will serve
as mayor until the group's second meet-
ing in April. She will nominate someone
to fill Hutzelman's spot on the commis-
sion until elections April 2, which would
cover just five meetings.
Hutzelman was first elected to office
in April 2004, to a three-year term, after
being appointed to fill the unexpired
term of Mary Miller two months before
that. She was unopposed in that election,
and was first named mayor by her fellow
council members in 2009. She was also
unopposed in 2007 and again in 2010 in
her council races. The couple moved here
in 2000.

When I tell someone what I do for
a living, their response is usually the
same: "You are a veterinary oncologist?
I did not know there was such a thing.
Do people treat their pets for cancer?"
This usually prompts a response
about what my job entails and my pas-
sion for veterinary oncology.z
It is interesting that in today's society
where most households have at least
one pet, so few people realize there is
specialty care available for their pet.
Just as in human medicine, many
specialties now exist in veterinary
medicine. Some examples of the spe-
cialties available for your pet include:
internal medicine, neurology, oncology,
cardiology, surgery, ophthalmology,
and dermatology. The family physician
is the equivalent of a general veteri-
narian, who your pet visits for basic
wellness and vaccines. If the family
physician were to hear a heart murmur
or irregular heartbeat on a patient,


Karri Miller
anm


they would be sent to a cardiologist
for tests and an evaluation. It is very
similar in veterinary medicine where
a heart murmur or irregular heartbeat
found by the general veterinarian, may
be further evaluated by a veterinary
cardiologist. Your family veterinarian
may be the first doctor to assess any
medical problem that your pet has, but
they may recommend your pet visit a
specialist for additional help managing
your pet's medical condition.
Another question that I get asked

when telling people about my job is,
"Did you have to undergo special train-
ing to do oncology?" The answer to that
is yes.
Any specialist, whether it is a human


physician or a veterinarian, has to
pursue special training after medical or
veterinary school in order to specialize

Reasons for this difference include
cost, availability of the treatment, and,
the ability to tolerate the treatment.
Dogs and cats metabolize medications

FEELING :



Hospital foundation recognizes



five philanthropic leaders


Winter Haven Hospital
Foundation recognized five gener-
ous benefactors whose philanthrop-
ic investments in Winter Haven
Hospital's patient care mission have
helped to establish a sustainable
legacy at the hospital, it announced.
Their contributions help the hos-
pital continue to pursue its mission
of expanding access to health care
in Central Florida by a locally owned
and operated institution.
The benefactors were recognized
at the Winter Haven Hospital
Foundation Philanthropy Center in


the hospital's Volunteer Auxiliary
Grande Lobby last week.
Those recongized include Ben Hill
Griffin, Inc., The Paul and Jean Cate
Endowment Fund, The Polk County
Cup, an anonymous donor, who
while choosing to remain anony-
mous, has invested substantially in
Winter Haven Hospital's not-for-
profit healthcare mission.
"As a not-for-profit healthcare
institution, Winter Haven Hospital
would not exist without the con-
tinued and generous philanthropic
support of successful individuals,


families and businesses who live
here and who've dedicated their
lives to the advancement of our
community," said Eric Adamson,
chair of the Winter Haven Hospital
Foundation Board of Trustees. "The
philanthropic leaders we honored
are deserving of permanent recogni-
tion in our Foundation Philanthropy
Center."
Lance Anastasio, president
and CEO of Winter Haven Hospital,
said, "These philanthropic lead-
ers are fundamental to how Winter
Haven Hospital came into being


and how we can continue to provide
world-class healthcare services to
Central Florida. We can cite
example after example, from the
Bostick Heart Center to the Cassidy
Cancer Center to the Regency
Center for Women & Infants, where
philanthropic investrfients have
provided both seed money to get
programs off the ground and sus-
taining funds to ensure their suc-
cess. And no one should forget how
many lives in our community have
been positively affected by those
programs."

Adult grief support groups
start at Cornerstone Hospice
Cornerstone Hospice www.
cornerstonehospice.org has an-
nounced six weekly adult support
groups for anyone who has suffered
the loss of a loved one.
"By meeting others facing a
similar situation, sharing their grief,
experiences, and learning how to
work through a traumatic situations
such as the loss of a spouse or a
close friend or relative, research
shows the grief is more bearable,"
explained Don Hires, manager of
bereavement and spiritual car for
Cornerstone Hospice.
Anyone from any community in
Polk county who has lost a loved
one is encouraged to participate in
these group encounters.
"Each person carries his or
her own level of bereavement,
but the enormous weight will be
more bearable and sustainable
when talked about among others
currently undergoing similar grief
experiences,"Judy Thye, MA and
licensed mental health bereavement
counselor for Cornerstone
Hospice's Polk County operations,
said.
Thye added she intends to
bring to the group participants
who have already undergone the
grief process so they can share their
experience with new participants
who have suffered a more recent
loss.
Six Friday sessions in Winter
Haven Start March 8.
These encounters are offered
free at the non-profit's Polk
county operational center at 2590
Havendale Blvd., Winter Haven, and
run from 10 a.m.-noon every Friday.
The groups start with March 8, and
run March 15, March 22 and March 29,
continuing through April 5 and
April 12.
It is not a requirement for partici-
pants to have utilized Cornerstone
Hospice services, but participants
are encouraged to call to reserve
seating by calling 863-291-5560 or
toll-free 800-503-5756.

When abnormal lab results are normal


DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a new
reader to your column; as such, I
thought I would ask you a question
that I have never seen asked or ad-
dressed in similar newspaper health
columns.
I am in my early 40s. I am active
and generally healthy. That being
said, I have GERD, but I have suc-
cessfully been treating it with a daily
dose of 20 mg of omeprazole for the
past 10 years. Last year, I read that
omeprazole can inhibit the body's
ability to absorb vitamin B-12. I
had my B-12 level checked to see if
I was deficient. I wasn't. In fact, my
B-12 blood level was about 30 points
higher than the "normal" range,
which as I recall topped out at 900
mg/dl. -
My primary-care physician said,
"There's nothing to worry about." A
GI doctor said that he wasn't con-
cerned either.
Because everything I've read on
the subject indicates that excessive
levels of B-12 could be an indica-
tor of other disorders, I'm scared.

big part in blood sugar control. Since
then, my blood sugar has fallen by
50 percent. My insulin dose has gone
from 100 units per day to 15-20. The
surgeon thought I could have had a
low-grade infection for some time,
causing problems. What do you think?
- G.R.
ANSWER: I think your surgeon is
exactly right. A chronic infection can
cause a big increase in your insulin
needs, and the only way to restore it is
to cure the infection. The only way to
cure a chronic, smoldering appendi-
citis, or abscess around the appendix,
is to get rid of it. A sudden increase
in insulin needs can mean a hidden
infection.

One flu over ...


worse to come?


Climate change is nothing to sneeze at
Indeed, if researchers are right, you
might be sneezing more.
In a new published study, scientists at
Arizona State University say an analysis
of flu and climate patterns in the United
States from 1997 to the present suggests
that warm winters are usually followed by
heavier-than- normal influenza outbreaks.
"It appears that fewer people contract
influenza during warm winters, and this
causes a major portion of the popula-
tion to remain vulnerable into the next
(flu) season, causing an early and strong
emergence," said study author Sherry
Towers, a professor at the Mathematical,
Computational and Modeling Sciences
Center atASU.
"And when a flu season begins excep-
tionally early, much of the population
has not had a chance to get vaccinated,
potentially making that flu season even
worse;"
The current flu season may be a case in
point It began early and fiercely and still
rages in parts of the country It followed a
relatively light 2011 season and coincided
with the fourth warmest winter on record.
According to studies, flu transmission
decreases in warm or humid conditions.
The authors speculate that if global
warming continues, with warm summers
becoming more common, the emergence
of future flu seasons is likely to be more
dramatic and perhaps more devastating
