Supermarket sweep for incentives comes up short

Meeting doesn't provide many answers in getting grocery store for city


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
City officials didn't make much progress
last week in their efforts to find ways to
attract a supermarket chain to Frostproof.
Polk County's Community Development
Manager, Jim DeGennaro, said the city
should continue its efforts to attract a
grocery store here, but that much of the


decision is driven by things out of the city's
control, like market demographics.
And, if a chain was to locate a store
here, it would more than likely be near the
intersection of U.S. 27 and U.S. 98, not at
the site of the now closed Foodway store
on County Road 630 near Scenic Highway.
The meeting with local leaders Feb. 25
came after Kim Walker, who is interested
in locating a Save-A-Lot food store at the


former Foodway site, asked officials for
a number of financial incentives to do
so, including the city holding a $400,000
promissory note, and a number of building
and site repairs.
City council members declined to offer
those incentives, but wanted to explore
possible other options to bring that store,
or another chain, here.
DeGennaro said the Foodway store is


now in foreclosure, and thatWalker, who
was not at the meeting, was trying to
negotiate a "short sale" of the property.
"He's in a hurry to negotiate, at least with
the lender," DeGennaro said.
"They've got to get a good short sale
deal to make it cost effective, because
they already know that we're not going to

VIEWPOINT



Sinkhole coverage? Check your policy


Last week's catastrophic sinkhole in Seffner
should serve as a wake-up call for central
Floridians.
The Seffner sinkhole claimed a life, a rarity in
sinkholes. The only other sinkhole-related death
in this area that we recall relying on an admit-
tedly imperfect memory occurred many years
ago when a motorist driving on an unlighted road
drove into one.
The primary cause for concern from sinkholes
is not loss of life, but loss of a home. And that is a
loss that many central Florida residents notably
including persons living in Bartow and Lake Wales
- have experienced.
In the wake of the Seffner sinkhole, which swal-
lowed up a bedroom and killed a person sleeping
in that room, we researched Florida law and
talked to an insurance agent.
Briefly, Florida law requires insurance compa-
nies to cover "catastrophic ground cover collapse,"
but that is not synonymous with sinkholes.
To meet the definition of "catastrophic," a house


Our Viewpoint

must be "condemned as uninhabitable."
But as thoseof us who live in sinkhole-prone
areas are well aware, sinkholes can cause dam-
age let alone sleepless nights without the
"catastrophic collapse" for which coverage is
mandated.
One majestic two-story Bartow home ("man-
sion" would not be an overstatement) was actually
moved a few feet many years ago to avoid the
danger of extensive damage from a sinkhole in the
yard.
Small depressions or subsurface voids have
been filled beneath other homes to prevent
development of greater problems.
Typical warning signs are unexplained cracks in
walls or foundations. Modern subsurface test-
ing devices are now available to determine if the
cause is a potential sinkhole.
Insurance companies are required by Florida


law to offer sinkhole coverage for an additional
premium for these non-catastrophic perils, and
we suggest that for homeowners in our readership
area, it's worth exploring.
While we generally prefer to let private en-
terprise regulate itself, this is an area that the
Legislature might need to revisit.
Sinkhole coverage, regardless of the extent of
damage, used to be mandated by law for all policy
holders, but a change in Florida Statute 627 es-
tablished a differentiation between "catastrophic"
damage and the worrisome damage that results
from smaller sinkholes.
If your house is damaged (but not destroyed) by
fire or windstorm, insurance pays to fix it. We fail
to see the difference when damage caused by a
sinkhole can be repaired.
For the insurance industry, exposure to sink-
holes represents a far smaller risk than fires and
hurricanes.
But to the homeowner, the perils can be equally
devastating.


Letters to the editor


The Teflon administration


We Americans know that every
President will do some things you like
and some you dislike, and occasionally,
the President will make an error or a
misjudgment. But, in Obama's case, it
seems every time you turn around, he
is doing something we dislike. From
Obamacare, to the cover-up of Fast-
and-Furious, to the Bengazi catastro-
phe, to releasing the jailed illegals in
Arizona in a feeble attempt to prove
a point, to refusing to hold his AG to
enforcing the laws of this country, to
the scare tactics of the Sequester, etc,
etc, etc., and guess what: none of this
is Obama's fault .(according to him).


Obama won't take any blame, Holder
won't take any blame, Napoitano won't
take any blame, Clinton won't take any
blame; none of these will take any re-
sponsibility for these nefarious actions.
Folks, this is ridiculous. I was taught
in the military you can delegate
authority to a subordinate but you
can never delegate responsibility the
responsibility remains with you, and if
your people screw up, then you screwed
up. So to Obama I say, it's time to own
up to your failures. You have screwed
around with this country long enough,

HILLIARD 15


Scott's teacher conversion is questionable


Rick Scott really our next education
governor? In his proposed 2013-'14
budget, Scott suggests that Florida
classroom teachers receive an across-
the-board $2,500 raise. He sent a letter
to the chairman of the state Board
of Education for presentation at the
board's Feb. 25 meeting outlining the
plan, which would cost a hefty $480
million. The governor also recommend-
ed spending an additional $14 million
for teachers' classroom supplies.
It's easy to be cynical about such
announcements. Scott proved to be a
virtual nemesis of rank-and-file teach-
ers over the past two years, cutting the
state's education budget and support-
ing the elimination of teacher tenure.
Political realities have set in, and he
seems amazed people don't love him
for the job he's doing. In the wake of
fellow Republicans' drubbing in the last


Cary McMullen

[MATA0


election, Scott suddenly faces the pros-
pect of a very tough re-election, likely
against now-Democrat Charlie Crist.
So Scott's about-face could be his
attempt to woo voters, especially teach-
ers, with a kinder, gentler side.
In his letter to the education board
proposing pay increases, he said they
would be a way "to strategically invest
in statewide priorities that will encour-
age job creation for generations to


come." In other words, he's justifying
the raises on the same grounds that got
him elected an appeal to job creation.
He also said in the letter that the state's
teachers earned the raise because of
Florida's improvement in one national
review and rises in test scores and
graduation rates.
Even assuming those results are
sound, they owe no thanks to Scott's
policies, but never mind. I offer another
reason for raising pay for all teachers:
simple economics. Does anybody in our
owned-by-the-Chamber-of-Commerce,
free-enterprise-forever state legislature
believe teachers are exempt from one of
economics' basic rules that talented
workers will follow higher pay? If we
want to know why our public-education
system fares poorly compared with
other states, could it be our best
teachers run to other states that pay


more? Here's another reason to support
higher pay for teachers. In its zeal to
ferret out whom they believe to be lazy,
indifferent or incompetent teachers,
our legislators put the blame for poorly
performing schools on the wrong side
of the equation. It's students who ought
to be held accountable, as they were in
the past.
When I attended public school, the
common assumption was that if a
kid brought home a bad grade, it was
because he was lazy, indifferent or
incompetent. The onus was on students
to take personal responsibility there's
a Republican phrase for you for their
educations. It was not the teacher at
fault when a student brought home
straight Ds. When did we start assuming
the blame lay with a bad teacher? But of
course that is not the political mantra

buy their roof or repave their parking lot,"
Councilwoman DianaWebster Biehl said.
According to information supplied to
council members, the former Foodway
store was purchased in 2008 for $865,000
by Orlando Lorenzo of Miami, and that
he took out a 20-year loan of $1.19 million
with UPS Capital Business Credit on
March 5,2008.
DeGennaro said Save A-Lot requires a
population base of at least 20,000 people in
a rural area, with and median household
income of $40,000 or less. Aldi's requires
a trade area population of 35,000 people,
and a traffic count of 20,000 cars per day
outside its markets.
He said the U.S. 27 and 98 intersection
has a traffic count of about 16,000 cars a
day
'Aldi would be an uphill battle, and obvi-
ously we have A Save-A-Lot guy looking.
Just because they say 20,000 cars or 35,000
people, that doesn't stop us from marketing
to them" DeGennaro added. "There's other
things they might look at to."
Former council member Wesley
Wise, who is president of the Frostproof
Chamber of Commerce, was at the meet-
ing. As a local Realtor as well as elected
official, he has spent many behind the
scenes hours trying to get a store here.
"The Aldi representative told me out-
right, absolutely no," Wise said. "They go
by rooftops. They consider traffic counts,
but the main thing they're looking at is
rooftops."
He did indicate that the chamber has
accumulated about $50,000 that could be
used to provide incentives for a grocery
store or other enterprise to come to the city.
"We have talked about it and dedi-
cated that money to bringing business to
Frostproof," he said.
One possible thought was the idea of a
federal Housing and Urban Development
grant that gives out as much as $35,000 per
full-time job created.
A second would be a more local deal,
similar to the one negotiated with Ferguson
Enterprises in 2007 which called for the
city to pay $1,000 to Ferguson for each job
created. Eventually, the city wrote a check
for $75,000 as its part of the incentive deal
to bring their distribution warehouse here,
city officials indicated.
Also possible would be the waiving of
some building and impact fees.


"There's too many unknowns here to
make any real commitment (right now)
in my opinion," City Manager TR. Croley
noted.
"I just want to make sure we're not
missing something in our tool bag," Biehl
added.
DeGennaro said the earliest Frostproof
could apply for a HUD grant would be
toward the end of 2013.
Walker told DeGennaro that six full-time
jobs would be created, along with 15-20
part-time jobs, if the store were to actually
open. DeGennaro also noted thatWalker
would have to be an "active" participant in
any HUD grant program, providing finan-
cial information, a business and marketing
plan, and the like.
"It sounds like there's not a whole lot we
can offer to do at this point," Councilman
RalphWaters said. "There's not enough
information to even guess."
DeGennaro said the important thing was
to keep trying.
"You can look at the (demographic)
numbers and do nothing, but at least we're
trying, reaching out," DeGennaro said.
"We're going to continue to reach out. We'll
keep swinging. You won't do anything sit-
ting on your hands. I'm working with your
city manager on several levels. We're going
to keep trying until it happens."
Biehl asked if Frostproof could become a
regional destination for a "boutique" grocer
like Trader Joes orWhole Foods.
But DeGennaro said their requirements
were well beyond what regular grocers
require.
"Whole Foods wants 200,000 persons in
a 10-mile radius, and they want them all
college educated," he noted. "They want
to go where the level of education is higher
because what does that mean? More dis-
posable income. They won't be anywhere
in Polk County, not even Lakeland."
Croley says she constantly hears what
local residents are looking for in a store.
"They want fresh produce and fresh
meat That's a must with whatever comes
here for a store to be successful in my
opinion," she said.
Councilwoman Martha Neher said the
feedback she has gotten from community
members is they don't want to see taxpayer
dollars go toward store incentives.
"They're glad we made the decision we
did," she said. "It's their money. We would
just be giving it away"
Mayor Anne Dickinson said she had
heard similar sentiments.
"We didn't need to be in the grocery store
business," she added.


$150 million


proposed to fight


citrus greening


THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA

The majority of Florida's congres-
sional delegation is backing a bill
that would set aside $150 million
over five years to combat a bacte-
rial disease that for nearly a decade
has threatened to cripple Florida's
$9 billion-a-year citrus industry.
The legislation announced last
week by U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan,
R-Venice, would set up a trust -
funded through existing tariffs on
citrus imports to research citrus
greening, which the University
of Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences says has
cost the Sunshine State's economy
an estimated $3.63 billion in lost
revenues and 6,611 jobs since 2006.


"Citrus greening threatens not
only the existence of Florida
citrus farmers and producers, but
the entire U.S. citrus industry,"
Buchanan said. "Finding a cure to
this destructive disease is vital to
sustaining a strong economy and
protecting Florida jobs."
State legislators are also look-
ing at a proposal, backed by
Agriculture Commissioner Adam
Putnam, to put $9 million into
fighting citrus greening. The
federal proposal submitted by
Buchanan, and supported by
21 other members of Florida's
congressional delegation, is a
companion to the Citrus Research
and Development Trust Act previ-
ously filed by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson,
D-Fla.

these days. Reports are that legisla-
tors are cool to Gov. Scott's proposal
for across-the-board pay increases
because they favor instead wait for
it merit increases. Never mind that
teacher and school evaluations based
on test scores are increasingly proving
to be failed policy.
SScott in his letter touts teachers
as "the cornerstone of educational
success." He's right, of course, but who


is listening? Not the tea party or even
the legislative leadership. Not teachers
themselves, after the way he treated
them in the past.
The same political fear that drove
Scott might actually get through to
enough legislators to give Florida's
teachers boosts in pay and morale.
But Rick Scott shouldn't expect anyone
who supports public education to
tumble over themselves rushing to
thank him.

caused severe racial tension, put our
economy in shambles, and degraded
our great country's standing around
the world. You are by far the worst
president this country has ever had.
To Holder I say, you and Obama are


the ones responsible for the Fast and
Furious debacle, for not enforcing the
laws of this land, and you also have
been responsible for the racial divides
we see happening. To Napolitano -
you are also a jerk. When you claim our
borders are secure (ha!) and you refuse
to enforce immigration laws, and back
up your people (ICE) and THEN claim
you know absolutely NOTHING about
several hundred illegals being released


on society, what are you drinking? More
of Obama's Kool-aide perhaps? And
Secretary Clinton, with your ever-last-
ing concussion, blood clots, fainting,
sickness, etc., etc., all to avoid telling
the truth about Bengazi, you also are
another joke on the American people.
And you want to run for President
in 2016? Whatever happened to "the
buck stops here?" In this administra-
tion, it seems no one will take any


responsibility for anything. It's "pass
the buck," or just keep talking until the
people weary of hearing it and it will
go away. Is it any wonder we call this
the Teflon administration? Kind of re-
minds you of Sgt. Shultz from Hogan's
Heroes "I know nothing -
I see nothing."'

Agri-Fest celebrates 25 years

Dinner for sponsors offestival coming Friday


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
In 1988, Polk County's Agriculture
Extension Agent Jim Stricker and
then Polk Farm Bureau Director Leah
Lauderdale brainstormed an idea that
took root and grew into today's Agri-
Fest that gives about 6,000 Polk County
fourth- graders a hands-on glimpse of
Polk County's economic backbone.
This month's Agri-Fest at the W.H.
Stewart Agriculture Center on U.S.
Highway 17 in Bartow will be held
March 11-15 and March 18-22 from
8:30 a.m. until noon, according to this
year's leader and chief organizer Polk
Farm Bureau Director Carole McKenzie.
But before the hundreds of kids
descend on the ag center, past and pres-
ent volunteers and sponsors will be feted
Friday, March 8 at a 25th anniversary
celebration reception and banquet, also
at the agriculture center.
'Agri-Fest couldn't happen without our
volunteers and sponsors," McKenzie said,
"and it is time they were recognized for
all they have done to help us educate our
children on the importance of agriculture
to Polk County's economy.
"Agri-Fest helps children understand
where their food comes from and how it
is produced," she explains. 'And it takes
dozens of volunteers countless hours to
make it happen."
Each day of the agricultural education
extravaganza, students will spend half a
day in four of eight areas where they will
learn hands-on about various segments
of Polk's agricultural output.
New to the line-up this year, according
to McKenzie,will be a station dealing
with a relatively new endeavor in Polk
County aquaculture. She explained
that extension ornamental aquaculture
agent Carlos Martinez of Lakeland will
show kids how tropical fish are raised,
how aquariums are maintained and
which types of tropical fish flourish in
Polk's climate.
Also new this year will be the Florida
Department of Agriculture's Viva 500
exhibit that traces Florida's agricultural
history from the beginning with the na-
tive peoples and through it's 500 years
of history since the Spaniards landed on
Florida's shores.
DOA educational liaison Erica Durr will
be on hand for both the Agri-Fest activi-
ties but will also be the keynote speaker
at the banquet. Viva 500 is a statewide
celebration of the 500th anniversary of
Juan Ponce de Le6n's arrival on Florida's
east coast. Durr explains that what makes
this anniversary so unique is that Ponce
de Le6n's convoy of explorers was the first
group of Europeans to document their
landing and gave Florida its name.
Other stations at which students will

Bureau, looks through the papers for the Agri-
Fest which begins March 11.

spend part of their morning will include
phosphate, water conservation, blueber-
ries, horticulture, citrus, forestry and beef.
Among the fun stuff,-says McKenzie,
students will learn the parts of plants,
photosynthesis and they will plant
seedlings and take one home.
"The hands-on approach gives them an
inkling of what goes into raising the foods
we eat," she says. McKenzie adds that
virtually all eight stations will have hands-
on activities, including a real-life Florida
cowboy and calf at the beef station.
The phosphate rotation will give
students a chance to dig for ancient
shark's teeth and tour "Big Mo" a mobile
education station that shows what mining
is all about and what phosphates do to
facilitate agricultural growth.
In the citrus station, students will not
only learn how oranges are grown and
harvested, but will get to squeeze their
own juice. At the blueberry station, the
students will get to see how bushes are
planted and harvested and taste a hand-
ful of the berry-luscious crop.
None of this would happen, the Farm
Bureau educator explains, without
sponsors.
"We can't thank our sponsors enough,"
she said. "Without their support, none of
this could happen."
Among the sponsors for this year's
Fest are Mosaic, Dole, Florida Farms,
Clear Springs, Fred's Southern Kitchen
Restaurant and the Polk Cattlemen's and
Cattlewomen's Associations.
McKenzie asked that former volunteers
or participants who would like to attend
the March 8 banquet should contact
the Farm Bureau office at 863-533-0561.
Inquiries about the activities also should
be directed to McKenzie or Program
Coordinator Sharon Wheeler at the same
number.

helped with various school activi-
ties including reading to students,
reviewing high-frequency words,
aiding in accelerated reading tests,
chaperoning field trips and other
school events, serving on the student
advisory committee, and assisting
teachers and staff.
Three times a week, he visits
Melony Gaffney's first-grade class
where he helps three of her strug-
gling students with their reading
skills and high-frequency words.
Lee believes that the students have
improved in their reading skills and
fluency within the short time he has
spent with them. But as Gaffney ex-
plains, it has been the boost in their
confidence that has been his most
significant impact on her students.
"When you have a struggling read-
er, and you have to sit in a reading
block up to 120 minutes, and you're
not a very good reader, you don't feel
successful; but when you get with
Mr. Lee, they feel so good about what
they are doing," Gaffney said.
"He's encouraging them," she
continued. "He just builds them up,
which is what we need."
Lee was born 1947 in New
Hampshire where he attended high
school before being drafted and as-
signed to Vietnam in 1968.
He served as an Aviation
Ordnanceman with the Helicopter
Attack Squadron (Light) Squadron
Three (HAL-3), or the "SeaWolves,"
the only helicopter attack squadron
and the most decorated squad in
naval history at the time.
For his outstanding service, he was
conferred a Navy Achievement Medal
with Combat "V" along with various
other medals and ribbons.
Both his Post Traumatic Stress
Disorder and his arthritis have left
him fully disabled.
After the war, he desired to have
children and to study elementary
education in order to become a
teacher; but he never had any
children of his own, aside from his
stepchildren, and finances prevented
him from pursuing a career as a
teacher.
He would work as a mechanic for
the rest of his life until retiring and
moving to Florida in 2001.
Being able to raise his grandchil-
dren and volunteer at the school has
allowed him the opportunity to teach
and mentor children that he always
desired to have.
"It seemed like an opportunity to
get in there and steer the kids in the
right direction, to get a head start"
Lee said.


POlTU IrO-VIiIU-U
Frostproof Elementary School's Volunteer of
the Year is Alan Lee, who has used many of his
life experiences to connect with students.
"He has really taken to the fact that
he gets to be involved, and feels like
these children are his own, and that's
why he loves to come to school,"
Gaffney said. "He just loves children,
and this is a new experience for him,
to take these children under his wing
and help mentor them."
Lee has used his military experi-
ence to help the students with their
education, as he would often share
his stories with them.
One morning during the Pledge of
Allegiance, he noticed some students
were not participating. He used that
moment to share with them the sig-
nificance of the pledge, the freedoms
guaranteed within it, and the brave
souls whose sacrifices helped pre-
serve them.
He shares a reciprocal love with the
children, who will often call out to
him in the hallway and even rush up
to him for a hug, Lee said.
Whenever he is not in her class,
Gaffney is asked by her students
about his absence and when he
will return. Aside from the love
he receives from the students, the
teachers and staff also consider him
a valuable asset.
"I cannot say enough good things
about him," Gaffney said. "He is a
willing, able, caring man, and I am
so glad he is volunteering in my
classroom."
As for Lee, his feelings toward the
school and its staff are more than
mutual. Of all the schools he has vis-
ited in his travels across the country,
he claims that this school is the best
and has the best staff.'
"They love the children, and they
love teaching," he said. "To them, it's
not just a job, it's a calling."

COUNTY


U=1-


CRAC seeks



equality in



county's hiring

County-run board redrew charts for

county hiring, contracting vendors


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

The Community Relations Advisory
Council is looking to make the gov-
ernment examine the way it hires
minorities and have it look at getting
bids from more minority businesses
when awarding
contracts.
a Recently the
CRAC remade two
organizational
S charts to start in
that direction.
The charts show
the county's
hiring prac-
t ices and how it
awards contracts.
However, a chart
Shandale Terrell showing the
January 2013
statistics showing the county's popula-
tion compared to the government's
statistics show things are already pretty
even.
Statistics show the percentage of
men and women living in Polk and
those working at the county are
far apart and the same is true for
Hispanics. But, the numbers for black,
white, Asian, Indian and Hawaiian are
pretty even.
However that doesn't mean there
aren't flaws and there could be some-
thing the county should be working
toward.
Shandale Terrell, who is the chair-
man of the CRAC board, made a
presentation to the county commis-
sion and it unanimously OK'd the new
charts.
"With the hiring process of mi-
norities we had this past year there's
a survey that was sent out," he said.
There was a mild lack of participation
in the survey and so it was done again,"
he said.
The survey sought the input
from vendors and minorities. Those are
the two areas the county is seeking to
increase more minorities. In the vend-
ing process, Terrell said, there is a small
number of minority businesses taking
part and that could either be because
they don't know about the opportuni-
ties or they don't think they have the
supplies and ability to handle the jobs.
The other area is to hire people who
are minorities to the county.
Statistics show the county's
population of 602,095 residents in the
2010 Metropolitan Statistical Area is
50.95 percent women and 49.05 men.
In January 2013 the county government
has has 37.93 percent women on the
working force and 62.07 percent men.
For Hispanics, the numbers show
the county has 17.69 percent of the
people living in Polk who are Hispanic
while the county has 7. 56 percent of
its workers who are Hispanic. County
population and those who work for the
county show for blacks, 14.76/14.75,
whites 75.21/75.35, Asian'1.62/1.57,


Indian 0.45/0/61, Hawaiian 0.6/0.5.
Of course the numbers alone
don't tell what position of authority
or influence this means. And, an area
where the county has to be
cognizant when hiring is to make sure
those applying are not only qualified
for the work but can carry the job off.
Just matching people to their back-
grounds obviously won't do.
"With all things equal, we not only
have to look at the experience level,
the skills and we always have to look at
how people interview... We don't care
how well qualified, if they blow the
interview that will mean something,"
said Equal Opportunity Director
Kandice Buford.
In order to get better Terrell said
more has to be understood. He said
one goal in looking at the numbers and
areas where people work is to get the
word out better.
In the contract area, putting vendor
offers on the video portion of the web-
site may be a way or letting minorities
know what is required to get a job may
be the key.
"We have monthly meetings ana-
lyzing the data and find out about
minorities and women that are hired.
The same is true with recruiting...
how do the vendors know about the
jobs?"
Buford said her office looks at how
the county delves out contracts.
"We need to see how many women-
owned and minority-owned busi-
nesses get a piece of the pie," she said.
"We've heard various .reasons as the
why. I can name a million reasons
of the whys I've heard and there has
been a perception that Polk County
was not open to doing business with
women and minorities."
But she said that is not true.
"Part of my job is my office goes out
and does outreach in our communi-
ties," she said.
They speak to the groups about
what contracts may be out there and
get them education on how to do
business with the county.
She added the county needs the
help from the businesses that are out
there as well.
"Another way is grassroots," she
said. "We need your help and go out in
your companies and tell them we may
not know you exist."
Formed about a decade ago, the
CRAC began the process of making
jobs within the county aim toward
including everyone and though it
started out slowly it has come a long
way, said the commission's represen-
tative on the CRAC, Todd Dantzler.
"We want the minority hiring to
have the county reflective of the
county's population," he said.
He said the committee is starting to
accomplish what it should do.
The CRAC meets once a month at
the Neil Combee Administrative Center
in Bartow, the fourth Monday of each
month.

Parents air concerns over class reductions

Meeting format with written questions only frustrates some


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
It had the air of a silent auction, with the
audience allowed to write their questions
but not to speak directly to the school
board and staff.
About 25 to 30 showed up at the school
board auditorium Tuesday, despite short
notice, for the first of three public meetings
regarding proposed school budget cuts.
The format provided for written questions
only, with index cards handed out as
people arrived. The cards were collected by
two district office employees and given to
communications director Leah Lauderdale
to read aloud to the board and staff, who
answered as best they could.
The board decided at their Feb. 19 work
session to hold the town hall meetings, to
allow public input. They reported getting
several emails regarding proposed budget
cuts; in particular, the proposal to cut
middle and high school schedules by one
class next year.
The district group was well-prepared,
with a power-point presentation, a Q and
A handout on the proposed schedule
change, and a structured format Not ev-
eryone was happy with the written format,
but in spite of several people requesting to
speak at the end, only one, a teacher, was
allowed to do so.
Mark Grey, assistant superintendent of
Business Services, told the gathering that
"No actions have been taken yet, at this
time these are just suggestions."
Among the suggestions, the ones that
drew the most concern were the schedule
changes, bus route changes, and ques-
tions not on the agenda, regarding district


salaries, teacher raises and possible top-
heaviness in the district office.
David Lewis, associate superintendent
of Learning, said in planning the class
reductions, "best practices" have been
built in (such as tutoring.) "The district no
longer gets additional funding for having a
seventh period, but we have continued to
do it anyway."
Some questions from the audience
were: "Will the high school day begin and
end at the same time, and what about the
effect this will have on students who work
after school?" Lewis replied that hours
have not been determined yet, but the
number of hours required by the state will
of course be adhered to. Interim School
Superintendent John Stewart conceded
there might be fewer hours available for
employment, but "Our job is to make sure
the students get an education."
Other concerns about scheduling
centered around having time for sports
practice if school got out later, and students
losing electives should the new system take
effect. As to electives, the current plan is
to offer particular electives based on the
number of students who ask for them at
registration.
One question read from the cards asked
why, with the current budget restraints, the
district is going to pay the new superinten-
dent a "six-figure salary."
Board member Tim Harris said the
district has a $1.5 billion budget, and
compared to the private sector, the
$200,000-$250,000 pay range was more
than reasonable. And, "You have districts
with half as many employees as Polk mak-
ing that much," he noted.
Another question was whether there

David Grey, Assistant. Superintendent, for Business Services, answers a question from a parent
at the first of three public meetings being held around the county. The purpose is to explain
proposed budget cuts to residents and to answer questions, which are being taken in written
form rather than having speakers at the podium.


were too many administrators at the
district office, to which Stewart replied,
"Administrators are an easy target, because
people don't always know what they do."
Harris added that several district posi-
tions have been eliminated and more may
be still.
Someone asked what would be done
for honor students who did not need the
tutoring being built in with the new sched-
uling, and Donna Nicolodea, director of
online learning, said, "We will work with
the schools to provide opportunities and
programs for the students."
After the meeting, a parent, who


declined to give her name because she has
a child in school, said her daughter is an
advanced placement student, and she is
worried about her not getting the electives
that will help her toward college and career.
She feels students such as those are going
to "get lost in the shuffle."
The public meetings still upcoming are:
Monday, March 11 at Harrison School
for the Arts, 750 Hollingsworth Road and
March 14, at Ridge Community High
School, 500 Orchard Drive, Davenport.
All the meetings are from 6:30-8 p.m.
The meetings will be televised on PGTV

Your kitchen can become a science lab. Your back-

Here are a couple of fun, educational activities to
try with Your school-age children this spring break.

This is a fun experiment to teach kids about surface
tension, when water molecules hold on so tightly to
one another that they create a strong, sketchy skin
on water's surface. It's because of surface tension, for
instance, that some insects can run across a lake or
other body of water.

Student
Spotlight


A year ago, Dervin Green didn't know a bas-
ket toss from a back spot, a tuck from a toss.
In February, as the only male member of
Polk State Cheerleading, he competed in the
Cheersport National Cheerleading & Dance
Championship, where he put his newfound
knowledge of the sport not to mention
teamwork and perseverance on nationwide
display.
"Ten years ago, I never would have
thought I'd be a cheerleader," said Green,
22, a Lakeland resident, who contributed to
the squad's recent win in the Junior College
Division of the Florida State Fair Cheer
Competition.
The story of how Green ended up at Polk
State and eventually a member of its cheer-
leading squad is the kind that evokes both
watery eyes and beaming smiles.
A couple years ago, Green was a student
at George Jenkins High School, making good
grades and headed toward graduation. Then,
in 2010, when he was halfway through his
junior year, his younger sister, Kenya, trans-
ferred to Gause Academy, a school where
students who have fallen behind can get back
on academic track.
Green didn't want his sister to go to school
alone, so he transferred with her. It was a move
that meant leaving behind friends and not
sharing in their senior-year events, but being
with his sister was more important.
"She's my best friend," he said.
Kenya said going to a new school is always
hard, but having her older brother there made
all the difference.
"I didn't know anybody. You know that
awkward feeling you get when you don't know
anyone?" she said. "With him there, I didn't


have to go anywhere alone, I had someone
with me all the time."
Green graduated from Gause in 2010. In
the two years that followed, he spent much
of his time at his church, St. Luke's Ministries
in Lakeland, where he sings in the choir and
works with the youth ministry.
His sister, meanwhile, had graduated from
high school, too, and was enrolling at Polk
State. That's when Green realized he had to
refocus on his own education.
"I knew I needed to further my education to
get a good job. Polk State is close to home, so
here I am," he said.
He began classes in the summer of 2012,
and by the fall, had learned about Polk State
Cheerleading, a program resurrected four
years ago by Head Coach and Polk State
alumna Brittany Carson.
Green had always been naturally acrobatic,
flipping and cartwheeling in his backyard.
When he saw the energy and success of the
squad, which in 2012 made its first-ever ap-
pearance at Cheersport, he thought he might
be a good fit.
He was right.
"I got an email before our season was even
over from this student who wanted to know
when tryouts were," Carson said, recalling her
first interactions with Green last summer.
"Then, the week before tryouts, he already
had all his information turned into the
Athletics Department. You don't even have to
do that, you can just bring all the paperwork
to tryouts, so he had really gone above and
beyond to be part of the team."
During his tryout, Green explained that
he'd never had any cheerleading, tumbling or
gymnastics experience, which naturally made
Carson a bit wary.
But then Green started flipping across the
floor of the Winter Haven Health Center, and
Carson knew he belonged on her team.
"He's just been practicing in his backyard,
but you would think he's been a gymnast for
10 years," Carson said.
Green, of course, easily made the team,
but the months that followed were far from a
breeze.
"It's a lot harder than I thought. It's taught
me that you can't just look at something and
CHEER 13


IDEAS
FROM PAGE 1

Several pennies
White paper
Clear drinking glass
Medicine dropper
Liquid soap

What to do:
Fill the glass to the top with water,
add a few drops of food coloring, set
the glass on white paper.
Add pennies, one at a time.
Count the number of pennies you
drop into the water and notice the
strange bulge on the water's surface.
Stop when water drips over the
edge.
Repeat the challenge, but this time
add several squirts of liquid soap
to the water. Answer the following


questions: Does the glass hold more
or fewer pennies? Does the bulge
form on the water's surface?
Place a penny on white paper.
This time, use a medicine drop-
per to place water on the penny's
surface. Count how many drops the
penny can hold. Does a bulge of
water form on the penny?
Another tip: Take the kids to a
nearby lake or pond to observe bugs
running on the surface.

Number Tic-Tac-Toe
This is a variation of the classic,
but with a mathematical twist. This
not only makes the game more
challenging, but it also lets children
practice their addition skills.

The objective:
Be the first player to complete a
row of numbers that when added
together equal 15.


Materials needed:
A piece of paper and a pencil for
each player

Setting up the game:
Make a standard tic-tac-toe board
- two parallel horizontal lines crossed
by two parallel vertical lines to form
nine equal spaces for each player.
Assign one player even numbers
between 1 and 9, and assign the other
player the odd numbers between the
same range. The player with the odd
numbers goes first.

Playing the game:
The first player writes an odd num-
ber in one of the spaces. The second
player then plays an even number in
an attempt to get three numbers in a
row that equals 15. The rows may be
vertical, horizontal or diagonal. Each
number can only be played once. Play
continues until one player wins by


reaching 15 in a line or all the spaces
are filled. Players then swap even and
odd numbers for the next match.
These are just a few of the many fun,
educational activities you may want
to try at home with your children this

Polk State College Athletic


Hall of Fame Inducts Softball


Superstar Greta Cecchetti


Pitcher Greta Cecchetti found the
answer to her dreams and more -
at Polk State College.
The youngster, who was a member
of the Italian Junior National Team,
wanted to play college softball in the
United States.
She lived her dream when she
was recruited by Polk State, but the
dream got even better when she was
inducted into the Polk State College
Athletic Hall of Fame on Feb. 20.
"It's a great honor for sure," said
Cecchetti, 23. "I wasn't expecting it."
Cecchetti's numbers say otherwise.
Cecchetti, who is from Bollate, Italy,
holds the Polk State College career
records for victories (46), lowest
earned run average (0.97) and most
strikeouts (460).
She owns the single season records
for lowest earned run average (0.97 in
each of the 2009 and 2010 seasons),
and. most strikeouts (260), set in 2009.
The 2010 second-team NJCAA All
American was twice named Suncoast
Conference Pitcher of the Year and
was twice selected to the FCSAA All
State team.
She led the Polk State College team
to the 2009 Suncoast Conference
Championship.
She is the eighth Polk State College
athlete and third woman to be
inducted into the Polk State College
Athletic Hall of Fame.
Looking back at her achievements,
Cecchetti remembers her first game at
Polk State College in Jan. 2009, when
coach Jeff Ellis wrote her name in the

starting lineup for the season opener.
"I thought, 'Is this man crazy?'" she
said. "Oh my God, the little girl from
Italy is going to lose the first game."
But, Ellis knew what he was doing.
Cecchetti was 19-12 in 2009.
She was 27-12 for the 2010 season.
Her No. 18 jersey was retired in April
2010.
Except for her first nervous night
in the United States, Cecchetti never
questioned her decision to attend
Polk.
"It's so great to be back," she said
the day before her Hall of Fame
induction. "I really like this school.
If it was a four-year school, I would
have stayed for sure. The campus is


beautiful. I really liked my professors.
The classes are smaller. It's kind of like
being in a big family."
She's proud to be part of the grow-
ing championship-caliber teams at
Polk.
"That first year, Coach didn't recruit
many players," Cecchetti said. "From
that to where Polk is now, is incred-
ible. I'm proud to be part of it."
Cecchetti went on to play for Texas
A&M University-Corpus Christi, where
she helped the Islanders win the 2011
Southland Conference. She graduated
with a degree in Psychology in 2012.
She currently plays for the Italian
national team and her Bollate club
team.

It's a Big Day for Polk Basketball

With Back-to-Back Wins, Eagles Claim Suncoast Conference Title


The Polk State College men's basketball team posted
two victories and won the Suncoast Conference title
all in one day on Feb. 20.
The sixth-ranked Eagles (22-8) rallied from a
19-point deficit to down St. Petersburg 62-58 on the
road in their last regular-season game.
Not only did Polk gain a much-needed Suncoast
Conference victory, but the Eagles tallied a second
victory on the same day by forfeit, giving them a 7-2
Suncoast Conference record, and thus, the conference
title.
Polk State College was given an additional victory
from the NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic
Association) after an appeal by State College of
Florida, Manatee-Sarasota was denied.
The Manatees were found to have played an
ineligible player in a contest at Polk State College on
Jan. 23.
The Suncoast Conference title is the second in three
years for the Eagles and marks the third consecutive
year the Polk State College team has earned-a berth
into the FCSAA/NJCAA Region 8 tournament, which
begins March 6 at Chipola College in Marianna. (Polk


State faces third-ranked Chipola on March 7. Watch
the game live at 7 p.m. EST at psblive.com).
It is also the sixth Suncoast Conference title in 13
years for Hall of Fame coach Matt Furjanic.
The Eagles received quite a team effort in their last
regular-season contest.
Sophomore Ralph Simmons (Charleston, S.C.) led
the Eagles with 12 points and six assists.
Freshman Nafis Walker (Philadelphia) added 11
points, four rebounds and four assists. Freshman
Bernard Samuel (Charleston, S.C.) scored 10 points.
Sophomore Ismaila Dauda (Nigeria) added four
points, 10 rebounds and three blocks.
"We got the wins we needed to," said Furjanic. 'After
finding out we won the conference, we could have
gone into the (St. Petersburg) game flat. I have to give
our players a lot of credit for winning and to keep it
up."
The win by forfeit made Polk's 81-78 victory over
State College of Florida on Feb. 17 all the more
significant, giving the Eagles two victories out of three
games with the Manatees.
The St. Petersburg victory was also important

for the team's confidence heading into the state
tournament.
"We want to make sure we keep winning," Furjanic
said. "You don't want to lose going into the playoffs.
You want to know what a win felt like."

say it's easy. You have to try it," he said.
During his first several practices,
Green said there were many times
when he wanted to give up. For in-
stance, when he kept inadvertently
hitting his teammates when trying to
catch a flyer a cheerleader who is
raised into the air.
Then there was the time, during his
first Polk State Basketball game, that he
attempted a tumbling sequence and
fell on his backside.
"I fell flat on the floor. I couldn't


tumble for three weeks," he said.
Through all those frustrating mo-
ments, Carson was right there, Green
said, encouraging him to get right back
up and try again.
"She told me that we all signed up for
the tough times. We're all going to get
hurt. But that I'm a great asset to the
team and I'll get better," he said.
Soon, Green realized, too, just how
much his teammates were depending
on him. He had previously run track,
a more solo-minded sport, but now
he was part of something bigger than
himself.
"I'm a back spot. If I'm not there,
then the flyer can't go up in the air," he
said. "If I wasn't there, I wouldn't just be


letting myself down, I'd be letting the
whole team down."
So Green kept tumbling, tossing,
catching and practicing. And, just like
Carson promised, he got better. Much
better. In early February, he contrib-
uted to the squad's win of the Junior
College Division of the Florida State
Fair Cheer Competition.
The team, Carson said, just wouldn't
be the same without him.
"Dervin has a great attitude and a
great team ethic. He makes our stunts
better and our basket tosses higher.
He's such a great role model," Carson
said. "If you could clone the perfect
team member, he'd be it."
Green, who is also a self-taught


singer and often sings the National,
Anthem at Polk State Basketball
games and other venues, is pursuing
his Associate in Arts degree from the
College. Ultimately, he plans to com-
plete a bachelor's degree and pursue a
career in massage therapy, though he
also dreams of becoming a professional
singer.
No matter where life takes him,
he knows the lessons learned while
wearing the "Polktastic P" are ones he'll
never forget.
"Don't ever hesitate to try something
new," he said. "I did and I'm proud of
myself. I'm a college student. I'm repre-
senting my school as a cheerleader. I'm
having a lot of fun."

At Polk State, Art Professor Finds What New York City Was Missing


Standing among a dozen scattered
easels in a Polk State College class-
room, Holly Sailors is a long way from
where she's been but exactly where
she wants to be.
intil a few months ago, Sailors' story
was the quintessential aspiring-artist-
makes-it-big kind of tale. She's studied
art at the graduate level, shown her
work around the world, taught other
aspiring artists, and made a name for
herself in NewYork City's art circles.
For all her success, however, some-
thing was missing, something she's
found right here as Polk State's newest
art professor.
"I wanted to teach, and Polk State
has given me the chance to do that full
time. Being here has brought me back
to the core values of art," said Sailors.
Sailors grew up in rural North
Carolina, dreaming of becoming a
professional artist. She studied at the
Savannah College of Art and Design,
the University of Georgia, and East
Carolina University before finally
landing in New York City, where she
received her Master of Fine Art from
the NewYork Academy of Art.
Her works oil paintings and prints
that are also commentaries on women's
issues and rights are in permanent
collections from Georgia to NewYork
to Germany. Her teaching experience
is just as extensive, including stints
at the New York Academy of Art and


Long Island
University.
To the
outsider, living
and working : _
in New York ... .
City would
seem the
ultimate goal
for an artist.
But as Sailors
explains, she's
always con-
sidered herself
equal parts art-
ist and teacher.
She can't do
one without
the other.
Coming to Polk
State has af-
forded her the
opportunity to
teach full time,
and in this
ever-connect-
ed world, the
move doesn't Polk State Art Professor H
mean she has titled, When a Rose Speakl
to leave New
York's art scene entirely.
"New York is only a flight away.
Contemporary culture is so Internet-
driven that it is easy to stay connected
to a lot of art scenes," she said, adding
she'll be showing her work in Body


oily
s to t


Politic, an up-
S" coming show at
I- 'New York City's
e ,rveGrand Salon of
the National
a gArts Club, proof
tof the balance
she intends
on striking
between the
two locations.
"I can have the
best of both
worlds."
At Polk,
Sailors is teach-
ing courses in
drawing, paint-
ing and design
at both the
Lakeland and
Winter Haven
campuses,
as well as the
Polk State Lake
Wales Arts
Center. No
Sailors with her painting matter where
he rave. she is around
the county on
a given day, she's gaining new perspec-
tive on art.
"There's an intensity to the New
York art scene, a nature that is not
very grounded. It's been refreshing to
simplify, to get back to the basics," she


said.
"My students here are interested in
things that I haven't been interested in
for. a long time. They're very influenced
by Disney, and are interested in anima-
tion and cartooning. Being here already
has broadened my sense of creativity,
of what art-making can be."
Longtime Polk State Art Professor
Gary Baker said Sailors has infused his
department with exciting new energy.
"She's bringing, not to be cliche, a
breath of fresh air. She has a very posi-
tive, healing kind of attitude," he said.
"If you remember the movie Jerry
Maguire, there was that catchphrase,
'You had me at hello.' Holly, during
her job interview, she had me when
she said, 'I want to teach.' There was
something about the sincerity and
humbleness in that statement that just
got me right then and there.
"She has an enthusiasm that makes
the students want to work and a
relaxed and gentle way of teaching that
will help them improve their skills."
Sailors said helping her Polk State
students develop and improve their
skills is exactly what she aims to do for
many years to come. This is her home
now.
"I'm going to invest my time here,
working with my students one-on-one
to expose them to as much knowledge
as possible for their educational path,"
she said.


POETRY
FROM PAGE 1

Program but for the entire College," she said. "In
addition to working full time, and pursuing a degree
to reach her future career goals, she dedicates her
time and energy to her passion poetry. She's a
wonderful example of the students at Polk State, who
are hard-working, determined, and won't let anything
stand between them and their goals."
Roper has been writing poetry since childhood.
"For me, poetry is a way to process my feelings,"
she said. "It's a way to vent in a constructive way."
About a decade ago, when she discovered online
forums for poets'- where she could receive feedback
and encouragement Roper took her hobby to a
new level. Since then, she's published a book of her
works, and another is in development.
'As I've gotten older, I've gotten better about using
metaphors and similes to mask what the actual situa-
tion is in my poems," Roper said. "By using creativity
to hide the personal aspect of it, my poems are more
universal to the readers. They come away with their
own meanings."
Roper's winning poem "Semele" is a perfect
example of the complexity of her work.
On the surface, it's about the Greek god Zeus and
an affair he had with Semele, a priestess and his
great-granddaughter. Zeus inadvertently kills Semele,
but takes from her body his child, who becomes
named Dionysus, the god of revelry and alcohol.
However, the title which is pronounced just like
"simile," a figure of speech that compares two unlike
things hints at deeper meanings.
"It is about something else that happened in my


life," Roper said, "but I don't have to tell anyone what
I'm talking about and they can still appreciate the
poem and take away from it their own meanings."
Roper has worked as a Polk County Sheriff's Office
911 operator and dispatcher for 16 years. She is
studying for her Associate in Arts degree at Polk State,
and plans to eventually transfer to a university to
study chemistry. Ultimately, she would like to work as
a crime lab technician for the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement.
Her winning poem, "Semele," follows:

Semele

Every time the eyes turn away
I cease to exist -
Dying a numbered death
Roaming in solitary, spectral form
The evidence of my existence foregone.
A returning glance won't bring my resurrection...
Hovering bee-like around you,
Minimally acknowledged
This distant yeast mouth
Expands and swallows me.
In the absence of the buzzing wings
The mead waits for Dionysus
To be reborn.

More Conference Highlights

Roper's win came during Polk State's most success-
ful appearance yet at the FCHC Conference.
The College had 21 students attend the event,
nearly double the participation of last year. Also, the
College had nine students make presentations, three
times the number of presenters last year.
In addition to Roper, presenters included:


Brandon Crotchett, Polk City, "My First Love"
Ryan Darley, Auburndale, "STEM-Powered Change"
Slade Fernandes, Davenport, "Maslow's Hierarchy
of Needs"
Sarah Massey, Lakeland, "Political Activism: Finding
a Voice for America's Youth"
Rosemary Reynolds, Winter Haven, "Mountain Lake
Memories"
Robin Savage, Auburndale, "Human Sex
Determination: A Biological Analysis"
Katie Widner, Winter Haven, "Voter Identification in
America's Political Theatre"
Jacob Wilson, Lake Alfred, "A Long Hard Look at the
American Political System"
Faculty attending the event included Brad Massey
and Ana Maria Myers, both Honors Program coor-
dinators; and professors William Caldecutt, Colleen
Caldecutt, Anthony Cornett, Greg Harris and Logan
Randolph.
Also, Polk State President Eileen Holden was the
event's keynote speaker.
The FCHC is a professional association of under-
graduate Honors Programs and colleges in Florida.
Since the 1990s, it has hosted an annual conference,
allowing Honors professionals and students the op-
portunity to network and share expertise.
Polk State College began attending the conference
in 2009, as part of its emphasis on growing its Honors
Program and to offer Honors students the oppor-
tunity to connect on a professional level with other
Honors programs.
The Polk State Honors Program offers smaller,
more rigorous classes, field trips, priority registration,
and numerous scholarship opportunities. To qualify
for the program, students must meet certain GPA
requirements and score highly on tests such as the
ACT or SAT.


Polk State Professors Organize Science Field Experience to Bahamas


Polk State students will leave the classrooms
behind this summer, fulfilling their science require-
ments during a first-ever field experience in the
Bahamas.
Polk State science professors Anthony Cornett,
Logan Randolph and Natalie Whitcomb have orga-
nized the International Science Field Experience.
Students will complete six weeks of online
coursework, then head to Andros, the largest but
least developed of the Bahamian islands, for the lab
portion of the courses.
During their two-week stay, students will be based
at Forfar, a research station operated by International
Field Studies, a nonprofit for teachers who run field
S study programs. Each day of the two-week trip will be
filled with eight to nine hours of field work, study-
ing topics such as the 160-mile Andros Barrier Reef,
erosion patterns and the effects of saltwater intrusion
on the island. Students will also participate in a beach
cleanup, which will include analyzing collected items.

TonoVet: Quick, non-invasive and


important for your pet's eyes


We've all heard the expression that
"eyes are the windows to the soul."
I've always believed that to be true in
our pets, too. Our fuzzy friends can be
pretty good at communicating with the
way they look at us, everything from a
dirty glace to a long and loving look.
But eyes, in the veterinary world,
can also be a trouble for pets as well,
especially as they grow older. There are
some breeds, too, that are susceptible
to glaucoma at a much early age than
you might expect.
Not all that long ago OK, longer ago
than I got into the business but not so
long that many practicing veterinar-
ians still remember it we used to use
something called a Schiotz Tonometer.
For a little perspective, this device


Dr. Lori Shank
\mw


was invented by Norwegian doctor in
1905. The last clinic I worked at before
coming to Fort Meade actually had one
at the practice, but no one really ever
used it much because it was difficult to
operate.

while, back, as being "like something
you'd find on Galileo's desk a cross
between an old-fashioned scale and a
compass used for drawing circles." To
use it, you literally had to balance the
contraption on the pet's cornea and
then try to take a reading! Suffice to say,
it was far from easy, which is no doubt
one of the main reasons they ultimately
were so rarely used.
Happily, one of the investments
we've made at the Fort Meade Animal
Clinic is a much more modern device,
known as a "TonoVet." It is a hand-held
device that is a lot like that machine
at the ophthalmologist's office that
shoots quick puff of air into your eye to
measure its pressure. Now, the TonoVet
doesn't actually use air, but a very tiny
probe that quickly touches your pet's
cornea. It's so quick and non-invasive


that most pets don't even react much to
it at all. There are other more modern
devices that are similar in concept, but
require that your pet's eye be numbed
first. Our new machine does not
require that.
The test results are immediate. Once
pressures get high, that can be an indi-
cation of a growing issue like glaucoma.
And there are dog and cat breeds that
are more predisposed than others to
what I would call hereditary glaucoma,
and signs of the disease will often show
up at between three and seven years
of age. Those breeds include Cocker
Spaniels, many of the terrier breeds,
poodles, beagles, Chow-Chows, Basset
Hounds and Dalmatians. Like most
afflictions, the earlier treatments can
begin, the better the chance for a
positive result. Because changes can be
subtle at first, and not real noticeable
to even the most observant owner, a
quick annual TonoVet test is the best
way to catch unseen, pardon the pun,
trouble. It is somewhat less common in
cats, but those breeds who tradition-
ally have higher incidences of primary
glaucoma include Persians, Siamese


and domestic short hairs. As your pets
grow older, even if it's not one of the
prone breeds, a yearly check can be a
wise investment.
Glaucoma basically occurs when
eye fluid drains more slowly than it
is created. The Best Friends Animal
Sanctuary in Utah, where I was most
fortunate to do one of my veterinary


internships, describes it like "overfill-
ing a balloon, and the eyeball becomes
larger and tightly stretched." It is
a very serious disease which undi-
agnosed and untreated can lead to
blindness, so that's why early detec-
tion is so critical. You might say, when
it comes to preventive medicine, the
eyes have it!

FEELING


Polk residents learn about getting healthy


First of two health fairs draws hundreds to event in Fort Meade


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
There was an obstacle course, laser tag,
human hamster balls, Wii games and Hula
Hoops to help give Polk County residents
ideas in how to get healthier and in better
shape Saturday
Oh, and there were blood pressure
checks, dental checks and tables set up
to show people wherein Polk County a
person can get into shape and how to be
healthier.
Currently Polk County- specifically
the Lakeland-Wminter Haven MSA- ranks
seventh in the nation as the heaviest
county, according to a 2012 Gallup Poll.
Polk County obesity rate is 10 percent
higher than the state average 37.6 to
27.2 percent, the Centers for Disease
Control. The health fair Saturday at the Fort
Meade Middle Senior High School was the
second time Polk County had this event.
It is part of a state grant under a program
called Building a Healthier Polk. It is the
first of two of these health fairs. The second
one is scheduled on Saturday, March 16, at
Munn Park. Last year that event drew 1,100
people in its debut.
Some items given to residents on tips on
how to stay healthy is not so much on run-
ning and working out Heather Donhauser,
a teacher resource specialist with the Polk
County School District, said there are parks
in every part of the county that encourages
hiking. There are swimming pools, places
to dance and cities frequently have activi-
ties that encourage people to keep moving.
At the fair Saturday there were other
areas to encourage people to stay healthy
-in other ways. For instance, Students
Working Against Tobacco also known
as SWAT had a table and a health food

Senior High. Desiree was there with SWAT a high

schoolers from starting to smoke cigarettes. She
goes to Winter Haven High.
professor gave a number of lectures on
how to eat better.
Angela Forte said through SWAT
she believes the students are making
progress in Polk County. She said cur-
rently 12.4 percent of the students smoke
cigarettes while four years ago the statistic
was at 20.4 percent.
"It's been tremendous," she said of what
the team has done. "It's students talking to
their peers. Our message is empowering
and educating and this education can help
students decide to never start."


She said talking to those who don't
smoke may go further than talking to those
who already smoke because the reaction
is different. Many times when talking to
those who don't smoke the smokers get
annoyed and many who do smoke won't
quit until they personally decide to do so.
"We have members who are in the group
who are users," Forte said. "There are two
who have been tobacco free for two years."
She said the two users have joined
under different circumstances. One joined
because that person needed the com-
munity service hours. And the other joined
because the SWAT team does "cool things,"
Forte said.
"Something like this, for example," she
said, pointing to two members who were
swinging Hula Hoops during a more quiet
time at the health fair.
"They don't even know they're working,"
she said.
In another way to show people on how
to be healthier there is eating.The music
in the gymnasium had to be lowered to
hear Judy Buss speak. Buss, who works
as a nutritional cooking instructor at
the University of South Florida, is also a
monthly health food columnist for The
Polk County Democrat, The Lake Wales
News, Frostproof News and Fort Meade
Leader.
Buss handed out two sheets of paper,
one with every day ingredients available in
the grocery store for relatively cheap prices
and one with recipes that have dishes that
are tasty and nutritious and don't take long
to make.
"It doesn't take a lot of time to fix and it's
so much fun to make... it's heaven and
you can't say that about a hospital," she
said. "You've never heard anyone said it
was heaven to be in the hospital. It reminds


me a a joke I heard one time where the
doctor said the patient if you want to get
well you have to stop eating hospital food."
She gave tips on how to steam veg-
etables, not to use bottled salad dressings
while homemade dressings take "a minute
to make and don't have a list of ingredients
you can't pronounce," and how to arrange
other foods that are just as good as any-
thing anyone's ever eaten. In fact, she said
she often hears from her husband that her
kitchen is the best restaurant in Lakeland.
When asked jokingly from the audience
when the restaurant is open, she answered
it is only for her small audience.
. "There was one lady in one of my classes
who lived and always ate at McDonald's,"
she said. Buss frequently cooked three
dishes at these classes and had the
students taste them.
"She said she was shocked. I asked why
and she said it tastes so great," she said.
And, in being able to prepare three dishes-
in a class shows this doesn't take long to
prepare. All it takes is dedication to change
the lifestyle, she said.
"Start with what takes the longest, then
do what takes less time. We can't talk on the
phone. Checking your health is serious. I
don't answer the phone when I'm cooking
even if the Pope is calling."
She emphasized a method called KISS.
"It means keep it simple, stupid and you
can make almost anything," she said.
The overall message Saturday was
anyone can be healthier with even the
smallest effort and there are many things
people can do to make it happen.
"We take for granted what we do," Forte,
whose group was a sponsor of Saturday's
health fair, said. "Walking up the stairs
instead of taking the elevator for instance.
We just need to create habits."


LRMC to move ahead in becoming a teaching hospital


Upon the recommendation of hospital
President Elaine Thompson, the Lakeland
Regional Medical Center Board of Directors
is moving forward with its goal of becom-
ing a teaching hospital by developing an
academic affiliation with USF Health.
"Our principal goal is to transform
into a teaching hospital. We believe
pairing the research and education
innovations of academic medicine with
LRMC's top-notch patient care provides
the best healthcare for patients and


their families," said Thompson. "Since
announcing our intention to partner
with USF Health in September 2012, we
have spent months performing a careful
evaluation and due diligence, which has
concluded that the first step in achiev-
ing our goal is executing an academic
affiliation."

Clark & Daughtrey to join LRHS
Clark & Daughtrey Medical Group PA
and Lakeland Regional Health Systems,


Inc. have signed a letter of intent that
outlines how they will bring their two
organizations together.
"We know that in order to provide the
best healthcare to patients and families at
lower costs, doctors and hospitals must
work together in new strategic, operational,
and financially aligned models," LRMC
President and CEO Elaine Thompson said.
"We understand that there are a multitude
of appropriate ways physicians and hos-
pitals can partner. Our relationship with


Clark & Daughtrey is just one way in which
providers in our community can come
together to center care around patients
and their families."
The two organizations will work going
forward on several key initiatives including
increasing access to primary care, exceed-
ing national level quality of care outcomes,
and participation in the newly developing
graduate medical education programs.
Clark & Daughtrey has been in Polk
County since 1949.

By TAMARA LUSH
ASSOCIATED PRESS

ST. PETERSBURG Florida's citrus
crop has suffered huge losses this
year, with fruit falling from trees and
the overall forecast declining about 10
percent, but the problems shouldn't
translate to a price increase at the
breakfast table yet.
Experts and growers say warm, dry
weather; too much fruit on each tree;
and citrus greening disease are the
likely culprits.
Some say this is the year that
greening which is caused by
a fast-spreading bacteria and is
also known as HLB, or, in Chinese,
Huanglongbing finally translates
into crop losses. Greening is spread
by insects, and there is no cure. It
leaves fruit sour and unusable, and
eventually kills the infected tree.
"I don't think there's any doubt that
we're beginning to see the effects of
citrus greening on the industry," said
Adam Putnam, Florida's agriculture
commissioner. "This is a situation
where the state's signature agricul-
tural commodity faces an existential
threat."
Most of Florida's biggest crop,
Valencia oranges, is used for juice,
and because of a surplus from last
year, consumer prices are not ex-
pected to increase this year. But they
could in the future.
At the beginning of the season
last October, the U.S. Department of
Agriculture predicted that the state's
total citrus crop would yield 154 mil-
lion boxes of fruit. But that forecast
has been downgraded to 141 million
boxes. A box of oranges, temples or
tangelos is 90 pounds, grapefruit
boxes are 85 pounds, and tangerines
are 95 pounds.
"The USDA has reduced the es-
timate three times in one season,"
Putnam said. "For a non-freeze, non-
hurricane year, that's extraordinary.
I'm very concerned."
The total impact of citrus in
Florida's economy is about $9 bil-
lion a year, and seasons like this one
can set farmers on edge. The state's
citrus harvest is about halfway over.
The early-season varieties have been
picked, but Valencia oranges are
scheduled for harvest in the coming
weeks.
"We were more than disappointed
for the early fruit," said Michael
Sparks, the CEO of Florida Citrus
Mutual, the state's largest grower
organization.


According to the Florida Citrus
Mutual, the state boasts 473,000 acres
of citrus groves and more than 70.6
million citrus trees. The citrus indus-
try directly and indirectly contributes
some 76,000 jobs in Florida.
About 90 percent of Florida's orang-
es are used for juice; by contrast, the
majority of California's orange crop is
sold as fresh fruit. Florida is second
in the world for orange juice produc-
tion, behind the country of Brazil.
Sparks said that even though lots
of early fruit fell from the trees,
the dropped fruit won't end up on
consumers' breakfast tables.
. "We do not allow that fruit to be
made into juice," he said.
Sparks said a "rather significant"
inventory last year will prevent price
increases for consumers, but such
a raise could come in later years if
researchers and growers don't find a
solution to the greening bacteria.
Putnam said he's asked the state
Legislature to increase the research
funding for treatment and cure of
citrus greening by several million
dollars this year.
Greening has been found in every
citrus-growing county in Florida.
Harold Browning, chief operating
officer for the Citrus Research and
Development Foundation in Lake
Alfred, said some trees in Florida
have been infected for five or six
years.
"Progressively, those trees look a
little less healthy each year," he said.
"The trees showing the most fruit
drop are those that look the most
unhealthy."
Browning said it's clear greening
has played a role in the dropped
fruit. But other tree stressors such
as drought also contribute to fruit
drop.
And some varieties of Florida citrus
are known as "alternate bearing"
crops, which means that during some
years, they produce heavier crop
loads. "This is a heavy crop season,"
Browning said.
Beyond oranges, Florida is the
nation's No. 1 producer of fresh
grapefruit. It's sent overseas to 24
countries, and consumers in places
such as Japan love it. Last Tuesday
was declared Florida Grapefruit Day
in the country, kicking off a two-
month media blitz for the fruit.
Much of Florida's grapefruit is
grown on the state's east coast along
the Indian River region. The fruit
is not immune to the problems
other citrus crops face. In October,


the USDA estimated that the state
would produce 20.2 million boxes,
but by February, it downgraded the
grapefruit crop forecast to 18 million
boxes.
"It's been a challenging year," said
Doug Bournique, the executive vice


president of the Indian River Citrus
League in Vero Beach. "Everybody
was hopeful that the crop would be
bigger. But we'll get through it, we
always do. Every year is a surprise
when you have your investment in a
limb of a tree."

Bulldogs break through with baseball win


After opening the season with back to
back losses to much largerWinter Haven,
the Bulldogs broke into the win column
with wins over Bayshore and Santa Fe.
Ard turned in a strong two-way perfor-
mance in the team's first win of the season,
picking up the win on the hill. He didn't
allow an earned runi, and only gave up three
hits. He walked four and fanned two during
his four innings of work.
At the plate, he cracked a homer in the
fifth and had two RBI for the game on two
hits.
Frostproof scored twice in the third, with
Marcus Ramos getting credit for a sacrifice
fly. but Bayshore cut that in half with a run
in the top of the fifth.
But the Bulldogs quickly quelled any
thoughts of a comeback by the visitors,
scoring four times in the bottom of the
fifth on RBI doubles by Ramos and Dustin
Baber and Ard's two run bomb.
The Bulldogs followed that
up with a 1-0 win over Santa
Fe, who returned the favor at
home Monday night in hand-
ing Frostproof a 9-8 loss.
The Bulldogs are at home
again Friday night when they
host Lake Placid.



Cody Wilson slides safely
across home plate with one
of the Bulldogs'six runs.


Frostproof's Brant Howell takes a throw in an
attempt to make an out at second base on
Bayshore runner Abis Peralta.


Some highlight defense, including this diving catch by centerfielder Casey Thomas supported
strong pitching by Trevor Ard. Shortstop Marcus Bobb (2) and rightfielder Clary Barnes arrive a
little too late to do much other than offer moral support for the great catch.





Somewhere in this
home plate mob is
Trevor Ard, who hit a
fifth-inning homerun
to help Frostproof
to a 6-2 win over
Bayshore in recent
action.

How do I determine the original offer?


We, the real
estate agents like
to help you make
an informed offer.
Meaning, we first
take into consider-
ation of the seller's
asking price. Then
we compare that
price to other homes
similar that have sold
ideally
within the
past six
months.
As an ini-
tial offer,
especially
if the sold
compa-
rables
are lower
than the asking price
we encourage you to
start there.

What is earnest
money? It is the
- initial deposit you
place with the ac-
cepted offer. I like to
say, "placing money
where your mouth is".
How much should
I set aside? REO,
foreclosures and such
are now requiring a
minimal of $1,000.00.
This money will be
credited towards
your purchase at
closing. Except for
the financing contin-
gency, you will forfeit


the earnest money
deposit should you
cancel your contract.

What is a mort-
gage? Likely the larg-
est debt you'll ever
take on, a mortgage
is a loan to finance
the purchase of your
home.

Your home is col-
lateral for the loan,
which is also a legal
contract you sign to
promise that you'll
pay the debt, with
interest and other
costs, typically over
15 to 30 years.
If you don't pay the
debt, the lender has
the right to take back
the property and sell
it to cover the debt.
To repay the debt,
you make monthly
installments or pay-
ments that typically
include the principal,
interest, taxes and
insurance, together
known as PITI.
