'Sweet Sixteen' will vie for $1K


Acts of all kinds, ages move on to Saturday's talent championships


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
And then there were 16.
And one of those 16 will walk off the
stage of Frostproof's Ramon Theater
with a $1,000 check in their pocket
Saturday night in the finals of the sixth
annual "Frostproof's Got Talent!" show.
The curtain goes up at 7 p.m.
One of the biggest fields in recent
memory played, sang and danced their
way through the first two preliminary
rounds last Friday and Saturday at
the Ramon, making the job of judges
difficult to say the least.
"With such a great field of talent, it
should be a tremendous finals," noted
Frostproof Rotary Club President James
Keene. "It was the largest field we have
had in several years, and as always, we
were amazed at just how much talent is
in our area."
Part of the judging criteria, in ad-
dition to just talent, is a performer's
ability to excite and connect with the
crowd, Keene noted.
"The more people they have whoop-
ing and hollering for them, the more
chance a judge or two might be


influenced maybe just a little," Keene
added. "It helps the performer's confi-
dence and creates a level of excitement
in the theater when their supporters
are in the audience."
Finalists include: Keiana Hamilton
of Frostproof (grades 9-12 division),
Josh Blevins of Lake Wales (adult),
Cassandra Warner of Avon Park (K-3),
Maegan Weir of Frostproof (adult),
Rodney Cannon of Frostproof (adult),
Moriah Finney of Avon Park (grades
6-8), Kailynn and Kaden Gibson of
Frostproof (K-3), and Taylor Waters of
Lake Wales (6-8).
Also, Nala Price of Sebring (6-8),
Hannah Corlew of Winter Haven (9-12),
The Teope Siblings of Avon Park (adult),
Chasity Kincaid of Lake Wales (adult),
Makayla Snyder of Babson Park (4-5),
Elisha Corlew of Winter Haven (9-12),
Jasmine Nava of Babson Park (4-5), and
Danny Becton of Lake Wales (senior
division).
All division winners receive either a
$50 or $100 cash prize for winning their
group, and the overall winner will go
home with $1,000 total.

Would Sunday alcohol sales

entice grocery store here?

Recent change in nearby
Fort Meade expected to help their bid


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Fort Meade officials are hoping that a
recent change in their alcohol ordi-
nances that will allow for Sunday sales
might be a big carrot at the end of their
grocery store stick.
And at least one Frostproof city of-
ficial is wondering if the same incentive
here might make a difference in attract-
ing a supermarket.
As the city continues to look at
ways to try and bring a food retailer
to Frostproof, Councilwoman Diana
Webster Biehl asked if such a change
might be in the city's interest if it wants
to have a chain grocer here.
"Recently, it was brought before


the (Fort Meade) council that Publix
wouldn't consider relocating unless
alcohol sales were approved on Sunday.
We have that same issue in Frostproof,"
Biehl said during a meeting a few
weeks ago that featured Polk County
Community Development Director Jim
DeGennaro reporting on his view of the
city's effort to attract a grocer.
He said he couldn't say specifically
if it was a criteria a store might use in
locating a store in a certain spot, but
that a change probably wouldn't hurt.
"I can just say in general that the
21st century calls for the sales of
alcoholic beverages on Sunday after-
noon," DeGennaro said. "There are

The Mosaic Company, a fixture in the Polk County
economy, has an outsized impact on communi-
ties from Florida's Gulf Coast to the Heartland. Its
phosphate mining and fertilizer production facilities
are the bedrock of local economies in Polk, Hardee,
Manatee and Hillsborough counties and a planned
14,000-acre mine in DeSoto County will produce
$275 million in tax and severance revenue over the
life of the mine. Mining impacts on the environment
from Bone Valley to the coast and the permitting
and legal challenges they entail often color people's
perceptions of the company and its employees.
But often unnoticed in coverage and discussions of
Mosaic is the philanthropic role the company plays in
our communities and around the world.
This week The Committee Encouraging Corporate
Philanthropy awarded Mosaic its 2013 Excellence
Award in Corporate Philanthropy for its Mosaic
Villages Project, which works with farmers in
Guatemala, India and eight African countries to
improve crop yields. It's an impressive program and
a deserved honor that prompted us to take stock of
the charitable efforts that company has undertaken
locally.
With thanks to Mosaic's Communications Manager
Kaley Miller, who coordinates most of the giving to


Our Viewpoint
local non-profits, we'd like to share some of the com-
pany's recent grants, donations and partnerships. It is
by no means a complete list, but we think it illustrates
Mosaic's sincere record of corporate citizenship.
In Polk County, Mosaic recently provided the rock
trail to Bok Tower Gardens as part'of its new 1.5-mile
preserve trail. The material, from phosphate mines, is
rich in fossil material and will add to the experience
at the beautiful new trail.
At the regional level, Mosaic has partnered with
the American Red Cross regional chapter since 2008,
supports the Charlotte, DeSoto and Sarasota county
fairs and funds hunger relief programs in central
and Southwest Florida with grants to the Florida
Association of Food Banks and several of its member
food banks. In 2012, the company awarded grants to
the Harry Chapin Food Bank for a refrigerator truck
and to DeSoto's County's All Faiths Food Bank for an
expansion of its mobile food cupboard.
In Charlotte County, Mosaic last year awarded a
grant to the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition
for new kitchen equipment and renovations at its
Kennesaw Street shelter and has been an annual


donor since 2005. It awarded a grant to the Charlotte
Harbor National Estuary Program for the Charlotte
Harbor Water Atlas project, and provided funding
for conferences and festivals. The Charlotte Harbor
Environmental Center received a Mosaic 2012 grant
for its Watershed Education Program as well as an-
nual support for its youth education programs. The
Charlotte County United Way has honored Mosaic as
a "Top 10 Business Partner" since 2008.
In DeSoto, Mosaic partners with the DeSoto County
Chamber of Commerce, Arcadia Rodeo, and DeSoto
County Education Foundation and donated to the
renovation of McSwain Park in downtown Arcadia.
In Sarasota County, the company is a member of
the county and North Port economic development
councils and is a supporter of Vision North Port.
The Mosaic Company Foundation supports the
Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast in Osprey
and awarded a grant for the expansion of Robinson
Preserve. A long-time Mote Marine Laboratory
partner, Mosaic supports its snook enhancement and
aquaculture program and awarded a grant last year
for its Sea Trek Distance Learning program.
We commend Mosaic for its generosity and com-
munity-mindedness and encourage companies of all
sizes and industries to follow their lead.


Letters to the editor


I'm glad the


sequester happened


Congress consists of two houses, (1)
the Senate who is supposed to discuss,
modify and/or reject the Bills sent to
it by (2) the House of Representatives
whose main purpose is to bring bills to
the Senate. These bills, if approved by
the Senate, are then sent to the presi-
dent for his signature or veto. President
Obama keeps speaking of a "do-nothing
Congress" but is it the entire Congress
or just a do-nothing Senate? I consider


myself an Independent, and it really irks
me when I see good, valid, proposals
(i.e., annual budgets) put forth by the
House of Representatives, and the bill is
either rejected on arrival or it isn't even
brought up on the floor for discussion
and a up/down vote.
And who makes this decision but the
leader of the Senate, Harry Reid, who is
supported by his Democratic colleagues
HILLIARD 5


'Right to speak' is past due in State Sunshine Law


State Sen. Joe Negron is on his third
attempt to get a key change added to
Florida's landmark Sunshine Law-- the
right of the public to speak before a
public board or commission takes
official action. If the general public
thinks it has that right already, that's
because people have been lulled into
the comfort zone by decision-making
boards and commissions through their
own local rule making. There is no state
law or constitutional guarantee of the
public's right to speak before a public
board or commission votes on a specific
matter.
Negron's bill, SB 50, and similar
legislation in the state House filed
by Rep. Ray Rodrigues, HB 23, would
add the right into Florida's Sunshine
Law, Chapter 286, Florida Statutes, to
speak out. Exemptions would prevail
for specific meetings as they do now


- executive sessions where boards
meet in the shade and make decisions
on pending litigation, for example. And
the public's comments, the bill speci-
fies, could be taken at a meeting on the
matter other than where the official
vote takes place.
The bill would "authorize" a board or
commission to adopt "reasonable" rules
to ensure orderly conduct of the meet-
ing. But, a board or commission could
not just announce, "We aren't taking


public comment."
That lack of the force of law came to a
head in the past three years in two state
appellate court rulings.
In 2010, The First District Court
of Appeal upheld the right of the
Community Maritime Park Associates,
Inc., acting on behalf of the city of
Pensacola, to deny the public the right
to speak at a public meeting regarding a
waterfront development. The plaintiffs
alleged the Sunshine Law's phrase
"open to the public" gave them that
right. The First DCA said no and that
the remedy would be a change in law.
In 2011, the Fifth District Court of
Appeal in Kennedy vs. St. Johns River
Water Management District affirmed a
lower court on the question of a public
speaking right. Plaintiffs alleged a viola-
tion of the Sunshine Law because the
water district board denied them the


right to speak before the vote. The ap-
peals court said no, too, because there
was no right in the law.
Negron filed his first bill for the 2011
session. But that year, his bill and a
House companion bill didn't even make
it out of their respective committees. In
2012, Negron tried again and got Senate
approval of the bill. But, the then-House
leadership refused to bring it to the
floor for a vote.
Negron and Rodrigues are confident
of passage this time around. Both bills
passed separate committees in their
respective chambers last week with
unanimous support in each committee.
Barbara Petersen, president of the:,
First Amendment Foundation in
Tallahassee, is confident, too. House
Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate

VIEWPOINT



Mosaic company a good corporate citizen











Fallen PCSO detention deputy Brown is honored


By JAMES COULTER
CORRESPONDENT

A classroom at a Frostproof jail
will be named in honor of an officer
who died four years ago from injuries
received during an altercation with
an inmate.
Classroom 4 in South County Jail
will be renamed the "Sergeant Brown
Memorial Classroom" after the Fort
Meade officer.


A proclamation renaming the cell
was offered to Sheriff Grady Judd
on Feb. 5, 2013, at a meeting of
the Polk County Board of County
Commissioners, who unanimously
conferred the offer.
Sgt. Ronnie Brown had worked for
the Polk County Sheriff's Office for
20 years. Before then, he had served
nine years in the U.S. Marines. His
career was defined by his commit-
ment to his line of work and to his


fellow officers.
On Aug. 30, 2009, Brown was
injured while responding to an un-
ruly inmate, Terrence Barnett, who,
according to an affidavit, became
violent and had broken his cell's
sprinkler, causing the cell to flood.
Brown and several other officers
rushed into the cell to remove him,
but Brown was knocked against a wall
and fell onto his back. Barnett was
subdued by a chemical agent.


Due to injuries he received to his
back, Brown had to be rescued from
the cell, and was rushed via ambu-
lance to Lake Wales Hospital, where
he received treatment before being
released.
On the morning of Sept. 1, his
back injuries had become so severe
that they left him immobilized. He
was taken to Winter Haven Hospital

just too many options for people to go
elsewhere."
The city visited the issue several
years ago, when local convenient store
owners asked about changing the law,
noting that potential customers were
driving just a short distance outside the
city limits to purchase liquor.
"Somebody's going to outflank you,
out gun you," he added. "It's something
you should look at (but) I can't tell you
where your moral compass is though. I'm
just saying the rest of the world isn't like
you. (But) yeah, I think it's a big issue."
"Most of the time we don't mind be-
ing different," Councilwoman Martha
Neher said.
While the Sunday sales issue was
defeated then, Frostproof officials did
approve by a 3-2 vote in late 2010 a
measure that would potentially allow a
downtown restaurant to serve alcohol.
The issue in Fort Meade had also
been before the commission there at
least once before, although not nearly


as recently as in Frostproof.
In 2000, city officials in Fort Meade
considered lifting the ban on Sunday
alcohol package sales at the request
of convenience store owners. But
churches and individuals mounted a
ringing protest against the idea, which
was put to a non-binding straw vote on
the November general election ballot.
More than 1,000 Fort Meade residents
voted against changing the law.
However, last month, when the idea
came up for a final vote, not a single
city resident showed up at the Fort
Meade commission meeting to voice
even an iota of concern.
City Commissioner Bob Elliott, who
has been involved with efforts to bring
a store to Fort Meade, had said that the
companies he's talked to had made it
clear that Sunday alcohol sales was an
important part of making a decision on
whether or not they would locate there.
"One of the first items that comes up
in conversation is our current ordi-
nance as it pertains to alcohol sales,"
Elliott added. "It's definitely on line two
of the contract."
He said he understood why people
might still be against such a change,


but that the greater good would be to
allow for Sunday sales.
"We need to grow commercial
business in this town. We can only tax
residents so much, and we have to be
sensible about our budgets. In some
30 years that I've lived here, we've had
these (alcohol) rules and regulations
to stay the course, and in my mind,
the course hasn't worked real good.
That was the reason to bring it up. I
felt it was important we were on the
same playing field the county was on.
I understand both sides of the equa-
tion, but it's more for the good of the
community."
Ultimately, the Fort Meade commis-
sion approved the change with one dis-
senting vote, that from Commissioner
Maurice Nelson, who didn't overtly
campaign against it. She is the execu-
tive director of Fort Meade's House of
Israel, a residential program for women
struggling with drug and/or alcohol
abuse, and domestic violence issues
and are homeless.
Fort Meade Commissioner Jim Watts
- he along with Elliott were both on
the commission in 2000 as well said
times change.


"People just can't afford to drive to
Bartow to get a loaf of bread," Watts
added. "We have to do what we can to
make it more compatible for a grocery
store here."
Fort Meade City Planner April Brown
backed Elliott's contention that Sunday
alcohol sales were important for a store
to locate in a city.
"One of the first questions asked not
only in discussions, but on their appli-
cations as well, is the city's regulations
for alcohol sales, most particularly on
Sunday," she noted.
The approval for Fort Meade's change
came about a month ago, but there
has been no announcement to date as
to whether or not Publix, Winn-Dixie,
Save-a-Lot or any other chain store
might locate there.
Frostproof most recently has been
having discussions with an investor
considering a Save-a-Lot franchise
store at the site of the former Foodway
store on County Road 630. However,
the developer asked for a number of
financial and other incentives which
the city council rejected as being too
expensive and in some cases, perhaps
illegal.

Dean Cannon was not. That surprised
me because his first degree was from
the University of Florida College of
Journalism and Communications
where the Sunshine Law had its genesis
in 1958 in the Society of Professional
Journalists Chapter. That year, then-
State Rep. J. Emory "Red" Cross was


a speaker and raised the idea of a
sunshine law.
Negron's persistence reminds me of
Cross. The law finally took effect on
July 1,1967. It was Cross' fifth attempt.
He filed the first bill in the House
in 1959. "He was laughed out of the
House," said Horance G. Davis, Jr.,
legendary journalism professor and
Pulitzer Prize winner. After election to
the Senate in 1961, Cross tried again
and again in 1963, 1965 and 1967.
I interviewed Cross for The St.
Augustine Record's 1998 series on the
Sunshine Law. I asked him what he did


to change the minds of lawmakers. A
federal court order that reapportioned
the Legislature made the difference,
he said. Before then, the Legislature
had equal numbers of lawmakers from
rural and urban counties. "The pine
trees and the cows had been voting for
years," Cross said. "When they started
letting the people vote, the law passed."
While confidence abounds in passage,
the public needs to voice its support
to legislators and Gov. Rick Scott. The
ultimate prize, the right in law, rests
with Scott.
Petersen said, "I can't imagine


that Gov. Scott would veto a bill that
restores a fundamental constitutional
right to the people of Florida the
right to speak to their elected represen-
tatives at a public meeting."
I can't either.

Polk State Lake Wales Art Center renovations near completion


By CASSIE JACOBY
CJACOBY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
The hammering is done. Except for a
few punch list items like adjusting locks
and touching up paint, the renovations at
the Polk State Lake Wales Arts Center are
complete. An unexpected roofing repair
has made the building stronger than ever
before in its more than 80-year history.
The public is invited to see the improve-
Sments at the Lake Wales campus at a
ribbon-cutting ceremony led by Polk State
President Eileen Holden on Thursday,
March 21 from 3-5 p.m.
I 7 C ;'?^^-


Crossroads Construction Superintendent Kevin
Whitlock completes punch list items at the newly
renovated Polk State Lake Wales Arts Center.


In late 2011, the College and the Lake
Wales Arts Council announced an innova-
tive collaboration that involved the College
accepting the title to the LakeWales Arts
Center.
In exchange, the college agreed to
renovate and maintain the facility, built in
1927 as the Holy Spirit Catholic Church.
Those renovations, meant to enhance
the building's structural integrity and-
functionality without altering the historic
character, began last summer and will be
finished this month.
"From the moment the college accepted
this building, we have maintained an
unwavering commitment to two things:
carefully preserving the building, which
is truly an iconic treasure for LakeWales;
and providing residents of the area with an
exciting place to learn and to experience
the arts," said Polk StateWminter Haven
Provost Sharon Miller.
Earlier this year, the College focused
on repairing the rotunda of the building's
sanctuary a project that proved more
involved than originally anticipated.
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.
'After further investigation, we found
that the structure had the possibility of
collapsing," revealed Robbie Manilkis, plan-
ning and construction project engineer
for Polk State Winter Haven. Manilkis said
when the building was originally built, its
rotunda was supported by wooden beams.
"Over time, the wood deteriorated from
the weight of the roof. You could visually
see that the roof was sagging," Manikis
added.
A new steel structural support system
to reinforce the rotunda of the building's
sanctuary was installed in mid-February,
and new roofing tiles were installed im-
mediately afterward.
Among the work that has been completedI


Renovations on the Polk State Lake Wales Arts Center included a new steel structural support
system to reinforce the rotunda of the building's sanctuary.


Two classrooms have received cos-
metic upgrades, including new flooring
and paint, and modem instructional
technology.
Restrooms have been remodeled to
meet code requirements and have received
upgraded finishes.
A student seating area has 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.
A waterproofing barrier has been
installed around the exterior of the
basement.


Stained-glass windows have been rebuilt
and protected behind a layer of hurricane-
rated glass.
All broken sidewalks and handrails have
been repaired.
Upgraded signage and landscaping has
been installed.
In addition to the Polk State College
LakeWales Arts Center, Polk State offers
classes in downtown LakeWales at the
Polk State JD Alexander Center, as well as
at campuses and centers in Lakeland and
Winter Haven.
The Lake Wales Arts Council will
maintain an office in the building located

COUNTY


Historical resources shared with DAR


Genealogy, cooperative, and history center


objectives


discussed


By MARYCANNADAY
MCANNADAY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

Daughters of the American
Revolution and friends heard a sum-
mary Friday of services provided by the
Polk Library Cooperative; the geneal-
ogy library and the history center as a
whole.
The Bartow chapter of the DAR held
a public seminar for people to learn
what is available in the building that
was once Polk County's main court-
house. Featured speakers were Gladys
Roberts, coordinator for the Polk
County Library Cooperative; Gail Seger,
senior library assistant; and Myrtice
Young, historic preservation manager.
The audience was also treated to
a tour of the 1908 courtroom, set for
renovations to add a jury box and
judge's bench to the historical venue.
Original jury chairs and an ornate
judge's bench were recently donated
and SEMCO Construction is building a
jury box.
Roberts, the library cooperative
coordinator, traced the history of the
co-op, which was formed in 1997 when
the county's municipal libraries joined
forces to allow libraries to courier
materials among themselves, as well as
allowing patrons access to any library
in Polk by use of a single card.
"We were so pleased, because every
city with a library joined the co-op;
there were no holdouts," Roberts said.
Additional programs offered by the
cooperative include books-by-mail,
for those who can't come to the physi-
cal facility; bookmobiles, which bring
reading materials into the community,
and a website with frequently updated
resources. Roberts noted that the co-op
also had specialized collections under
its umbrella, such as the Judge Steven
Grimes Law Library in the current
courthouse, and the Polk Genealogical
Library.
The Polk County Commissioners
took over funding of the library, back
when Joe Spann was librarian, after
assembling a task force to study the
collections. One of the recommenda-
tions was to hire a historical coordina-
tor the rolenow filled by Myrtice


Young. The two entities which had
been separate the museum and
genealogical library were merged
and renamed The Polk History Center,
Roberts said.
Roberts, who also has a position on
the Polk Historical Association, said,
"We feel the county commissioners
valuethe collections and the center.
And rest assured that you have people
in charge of your collections who value
them."
Currently, the challenge is to spread
the word about the many services, ex-
hibits and events at the history center,
Roberts said.
"We don't want the History Center to
be the best-kept secret in Polk County,"
she said.
When Seger took the podium fol-
lowing Roberts, she told the gathering
that.Polk's genealogical library was
the second largest collection in the
Southeast.
Among other resources, the library
has more than 10,000 books, DAR lin-
eage materials, Civil War Confederate
and union rosters, and the original
probate records (indexed) for Polk from
1862 to 1927. There are oral histories -
recorded tales of the old days shared by
the residents who lived them.
Computers on the second floor
allow patrons access to Ancestry.com,
and Dorinda Gerrard is available to
assist researchers, Seger said. Over the
past five to six years, a number of on-
line data bases have been developed
by the library, including Polk marriage
records, obituaries and cemetery
records. These resources are just the
tip of the iceberg.
Seger also shared that there is a
strong chance the genealogy library
may be moved completely from the
first floor, so that the collections will
all be housed on the second and third
floors.
"This will centralize staff, rather than
being strung out over three floors. This
is a good move, if it takes place," Seger
said. "We're not losing anything, it's
just being relocated," she assured the
group, which had many researchers
among its ranks.
She noted an engineering study had


been commissioned to ensure that the
second and third floors of the vintage
building could bear the weight of the
collections, and the study showed that
they could.
Seger said the library served about
87,000 people last year.
During her presentation, Myrtice
Young told the audience, "I was hired
to help create a vibrant program and
to maximize the building's use." These
goals, and that of diversifying fund-
ing have led to the idea of renting of
rooms for meetings, weddings and
special occasions, and perhaps offering
naming opportunities (such as, the
Jones gallery, etc.) Gift shop purchases
and donations are other revenue
sources. "I'm looking at every possible
resource," Young said. She assured the
group that admission to the museum
and library would still be free, however.
In answer to a question from the
audience, Young said the decision
to rename the facility "The History
Center" was actually made a few years

ago, to cut down on the verbage that
was confusing to some.
Young noted that the center has a
lot to offer in the way of exhibits; some
permanent, such 'as the pioneer life
exhibit, and some temporary, such as
the Spanish Pathways exhibit.
Young noted that two new museum
positions are being created by "repur-
posing" the curator position formerly
held by Tom Muir, Who has relocated
to another museum Out of state. These
will be Curator of Collections and
Exhibitions and Curator of Education
and Programs. The positions are reclds-
sifications and therefore are budget
neutral, Young said. The salaries are
funded by the General Fund at pay
grade 22 at $19.55 per hour.

Citrus growers face some good news, some bad


Research gaining ground on combating


citrus greening, but other pests persist


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT

Hundreds of Florida citrus growers
didn't hear exactly what they wanted to
hear at a recent packed-house meeting
at the Citrus Researchand Education
Center in Lake Alfred. In fact, they got
some good news and some bad news.
The good news growers got was that
there are potential chemicals being
developed that can combat citrus
greening, an insect-spread disease
that decimates crop yields, destroys
trees and is running rampant through
Florida's groves.
More good news, according to Citrus
Research and Development Foundation
chief Harold Browning, is that about
nine antimicrobial chemicals that early
research shows can counteract or even
eliminate the deadly bacteria in trees


are on the horizon.
"These chemicals can be sprayed
or injected into a tree or root system,"
Browning explained to the standing-
room-only crowd attending the March
seminar. He added next year's research
will identify which one of these new
chemicals will work best in Florida.
The bad news is that scientists have
learned that the tiny flea-like psyllid
isn't the only pest that is spreading the
disease. Entomologist Michael Rogers
of the CREC told the 400 growers that
the striped mealybug can also be
another Typhoid Mary by hosting and
spreading the greening bacteria to
citrus trees. He did, however, add that
the mealybug isn't nearly as rampant in
acquiring or spreading the disease.
The almost-always fatal greening
disease, known to the scientific com-
munity as huanglongbing or HLB, has


been affecting Florida's citrus crops for
the past several years with the latest
statistics showing its dramatic effects
on production. Scientists said the
premature dropping of fruit during the
2012-13 season is higher than it has
been in more than 40 years.
The new anti-microbial chemicals
will require intense development and
the Foundation would need a partner
willing to pick up the cost of obtain-
ing approval from a host of regulatory
bodies and the cost of manufacturing,
according to Browning. But, he added,
some of the promising germicides are
natural substances that aren't so strin-
gently regulated, and could be available
to growers soon. Others, he said, will
take years of regulatory review by
federal agencies that will cost millions
before approval.
Growers presently rely on amped-up


nutrition through sprayed-on fertilizers
and timed pesticide applications to
fight the elusive psyllids and hamper
the disease's spread.
"We're still supposed to keep doing
what we're already doing," said Frank
Hunt of Hunt Bros. Inc. of Lake Wales.
"But we're encouraged for the future."
Gene Paul of Bob Paul Citrus
in Winter Haven, wasn't quite so
encouraged.
"I don't know how long we can stay in
business," he said. "This is not invigo-
rating, it's depressing."
The two growers have a combined
7,000 acres of citrus in Highlands,
Hendry, Collier and Polk counties.
Rogers said the best strategy for
now is for growers to keep up their
enhanced fertilization and regular
insecticide spraying schedules to keep
psyllids in check.

PASSION for PETS


Charismatic pachyderms


Growing up in Florida, I developed
an interest in snakes and seriously
pursued herpetology as a hobby.
Even though I was fascinated by the
ophidians, secretly the tiger was my
favorite animal... until I met my first
elephant. Soon after arriving in Lake
Wales in 1982,1 was called to Circus
World, where Posner Park is now, to
examine some ponies.
After I finished with the ponies, a
man approached me and asked if I
would look at a growth on the trunk of
an elephant. This event started a long
experience with elephants. Thanks
to that man, Roman, I learned a lot
;about all aspects of elephantism and
ias I learned, he learned. The veterinary
knowledge of elephants was in its
infancy. When I started at Circus World
I soon diagnosed pregnancy in five
female Asian elephants, and the learn-
ing curve became steeper.


Thomas B. Schotman


Most of the captive born Asian
elephants were found dead or died
soon after. Almost no breeding of
African elephants had been done. After
a 22-24 month gestation, we had five
live, amazing babies.
This group of female elephants, to the
best of my knowledge, has produced
more offspring than any other captive
group, ever. A few of these pachyderms
are still thriving, and always seem to
remember me when I visit.


Elephants are a very endangered
species. Their native habitats are
constantly decreasing due to human
overpopulation and expansion of land
development for agriculture. Poaching
of elephants for their ivory is still
significantly affecting populations. Even
though the International Treaty for
the protection of endangered species
(CITES) has banned export/import
of elephants (1973) and even tried to
achieve a global ban on all ivory, more
than 600,000 African elephants were
killed for their ivory in the 1980s, more
than 25,000 were killed last year. Ten


Asian countries (China number 1) with
the most ivory seized between 1989 and
2011 has more than 225,000 pounds of
ivory confiscated. I wonder how much
made it to the markets. Asian males may
or may not have tusks, while females
do not have tusks, only smaller tushes.
The African males have tusks, and
females may or may not. Estimates of
about 40,000 Asian elephants and about
500,000 African elephants are on the
decline, mostly from loss of habitat and
competition with man.

PASSION PITS SaF


PETS
FROM PAGE 12
At one time I helped care for
more than 45 elephants, now there
are just a few. Both species are very
intelligent and require full-time
attention by their owners/keepers.
Elephants communicate with deep
low frequency sounds that can
travel long distances. I have "felt"
their talking when entering a barn.
Each animal has a unique per-
sonality, with some extroverts and
some introverts. A typical adult
will consume 50 pounds of feed
and 150-200 pounds of hay per
day. They require routine care of
their feet and skin. A life span of
up to 70 years has been possible
with good husbandry. One rule I
learned early on, always keep the
elephant keeper between you and
the elephant, as they are large and
respect their caretakers. They are
my favorite species and I have been
fortunate to have had the experi-
ence of getting to know a bunch of
elephants. I hope that everyone will
have the chance to experience an
elephant at a zoo, circus or sanctu-
ary, and never ever buy ivory in any
form.

Frostproof's Juan Flores dives back to first base to try to avoid being picked off in action last week
against Lake Placid.


There was plenty of base running last week when the Frostproof Bulldogs and Santa Fe combined
to score 17 runs. Unfortunately for Frostproof, Santa Fe had one more cross home plate than they
did, falling 9-8. Trailing 6-0 early, the Bulldogs plated eight runs in the first three innings to lead
8-6, but they could not hold on. Marcus Bobb and Casey Thomas both doubles for the Bulldogs.
Here, Assistant Coach Scott Leech gives Casey the green light ot head for second base.


Frostproof's Trevor Ard helps himself at the plate in a recent home game against Santa Fe High
School. He cracked a triple with this swing, but it wasn't enough as the Bulldogs fell to Santa Fe,
9-8, unable to recover from giving up six first-inning runs.

Polk State to open Clear Springs site in December


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT

Even though Polk State College has
been providing industrial training
for many years, the focus soon will
be shifted to the new Clear Springs
Advanced Technology Center on State
Road 60, just east of Bartow.
Rob Clancey, Director of the Polk
State Corporate College, said the new

campus should be open for business
in December. He said the multimil-
lion dollar campus, $15 million to
be exact, will be home to an initial
47,000-square-foot building that will
house a teaching auditorium, four ad-
vanced technology labs, six interactive
classrooms, a computer lab, multipur-
pose conference rooms and a student
services area.
The 20-acre building site identified
by a high-visibility sign on SR 60 sits
hidden from the busy.highway, but
shows that the building is progress-
ing on schedule, according to Rodda
Construction, the firm that is building
the new facility.
Clancey explained that the Corporate
College was founded in 2002 and has
provided workforce training for more
than 100,000 workers through its vari-
ous institutes scattered throughout the
PSC campuses.
"The Corporate College plays a vital
role in the county and region econo-
mies by providing the necessary train-
ing for high-skill, high-wage careers in
established industries," he said. "This
state of the art building will provide the
learning environment a state of the art
workforce demands.
"The Corporate College has been
thriving for years," he added, "But the
new facility at such an ideal location
positions us to truly transform the
region's workforce. Our success has
always been a reflection of the partner-
ships that sustain us and this project is
just another example of those partner-
ships at work."

said the new site will be remarkable on
many fronts.
"This facility is going to be visibly
remarkable, but more importantly, it is
going to be a remarkable educational
environment for students and corpo-
rate trainees to attain their degrees
and certificates in technical fields," she
said. "The more than 12,000 students
who seek advancement in their careers
through Corporate College offerings
annually will know they are going to
a great institution from the moment
they drive onto the Bartow Campus,
walk through the doors of the advanced
technology center and sit in a class-
room where real-world concepts can
be used as they enter manufacturing
plants, supply chain warehouses, offices
and the like."
Clancey says the new campus will
host a regional manufacturing cen-
ter with instructors from Rockwell
Automation and GP Strategies Corp;
contractor safety courses and supply
chain management strategies. 'All
these classes can lead to college credits
that may also help the students obtain
their associate's degrees in engineering
technology and supply chain manage-
ment," Clancey said.
Clancey also said the center is
negotiating with the U.S. Department
of Transportation to be one of only two
National Training Centers in the nation,
but those talks had not yet led to a com-
mitment from the U.S. DOT.
"We hope to have that worked out
in the near future," he said. Clancey
also said he was negotiating with CSX
Railroad to provide training when the

Wales opens. ...
Most of the Corporate College and the
new technology center is financed via
grants, the director further explained.
He said PSC was awarded nearly
$7 million in quick response training
grants for Polk County businesses and
to date, the grant total for the tech
center hovers around $17 million. He
added the grants are from various
sources, including the federal govern-
ment. The state was supposed to cough
up some matching funds, but due to
budget constraints, that has not yet
happened, Clancey added.
"We are continuing to pursue those
funds," he said.
Clancey stressed that all the training
at the new tech center will be "hands-
on" and classes will be held in "an
executive board room setting."
He also told the Rotarians the campus
will be 'open-entry' allowing students
access to the labs, either on-site or via
computer "24/7."
The programs planned for the
initial opening include: Supply Chain
Management Institute; Advanced
Manufacturing Institute;.Design
Construction and Sustainability
Institute; Workforce Safety Institute;
Information Technology Institute;
and high-tech degrees including,
Engineering Technology, Supply Chain
Management and Computer Network
Technology.
Students are expected to begin using
the new Bartow campus when the new
term starts in January.

Parents vocal to school board



Second input session on budget nearly fills auditorium


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
The Harrison School of the Arts
auditorium was about three quarters
full Monday for the second town hall
meeting designed to explain and take
questions about suggested school
board budget cuts. The board is consid-
ering cuts of about $16 million to help
offset additional expenses of almost
$24 million anticipated in 2013-14.
At least 200 people gathered at the
school, compared to the 20 or so at the
Bartow meeting, held Feb. 26.
Some among the Lakeland group
were also more vocal, at times calling
out comments or questions in spite
of the format ground rules that all
questions be written and given to the
district's communications director,
Leah Lauderdale, to be read aloud.
Four board members and the school
superintendent as well as four key staff
were on the stage to answer questions.
They explained items causing the
spike in the budget include two new
charter schools opening ($841,684 for
a total enrollment of 163 students,)
three middle school IB programs losing
their grants, necessitating funding by
the district ($120,000,) an increase in
the number of McKay Scholarships
($480,000) and an increase in the
amount that must be paid in to the
Florida Retirement system ($6,244,601,)
among other items.
The biggest ticket item is the pay
increases approved for teachers this
year, at a cost of $14,490,705 annually.
The raise is being paid from reserve
funds this year, but a more permanent
funding source needs to be found for
upcoming years.
As at the first meeting, concerns
focused mainly on the proposal to cut
one course from both high school and
middle school schedules and changes
to student transportation.
Perhaps hoping to avoid a charge
leveled in the Bartow meeting, that the
district is top-heavy in administrators,
finance administrator Audra Kurtz
told the group that 306 positions have
already been cut among that group,
leaving a hole in needed student
support.
Assistant Superintendent of Learning
David Lewis addressed the main
concern of the night which is cuts
from seven down to six courses in
high schools and eight courses down

Interim school superintendent John Stewart (far right) and board members Debra Wright, Hazel Sellers, Kay Fields and Hunt Berryman listen to a
question from a parent at the second of three town hall meetings designed to acquaint the public with budget cuts being contemplated for the
2013-2014 school year, mainly to fund pay increases approved for teacher and para-professional staff this year.


to seven in middle schools. Lewis said
there would be a 14 percent reduction
in staff as a result, but added attri-
tion, such as teachers retiring, would
probably prevent layoffs. He also said
in restructuring the school day, the
district is building in "best practices"
such as time for remedial, tutorial or
acceleration activities.
"Career, technical and fine arts
activities will continue to be offered at
middle schools as well as high schools,"
Lewis said. Electives, however, will be
offered based on student preference at
registration and some poorly attended
electives will be dropped. International
Baccalaureate and performing arts
schools will not be subject to the
reduction in courses, because of their
unique requirements, he said.
One parent note suggested the
district go to a four-day school week,
rather than cutting a course. Interim
School Superintendent John Stewart
replied that from what he has read, that
is not good practice. "And it puts an
additional burden for childcare on the
parents," he said.
Board member Kay Fields, who is ex-
ecutive director of Girls Incorporated,
added, "This would put the children
in danger of being home alone all day
when they're out of school."
Asked if bus transportation would be
dropped for magnet and charter school
students, Stewart said, "There will still
be transportation, but we will have

hubs, where students go to a central
location to catch the bus, rather than
being picked up at the end of their
street or at their front door."
Written questions were so numerous
that many were left over at the end.
Board chairperson Hazel Sellers told
the audience that the remaining ques-
tions would be compiled and answered
online.
The meeting wrapped up with one
person being given the floor to speak.
Savanna Collins, a Lakeland High
School junior, asked the board why


there was no student representation in
the meetings and budget talks.
"That's a good question," Stewart
said. "We're inviting you to the last
meeting (March 14 at Davenport.
School of the Arts) and if you'll leave
your name and phone number, we will
get in touch with you."
Collins told The Polk County
Democrat after the meeting that she is a
reporter for her school newspaper. "So
many students have had questions,"
she said, "that I felt I had an obligation
to let them know what is going on."

That's why there's a burn ban in Polk County


PHOTOS BY BRIAN ACKLEY
Frostproof firefighters were called to a brush fire near the intersection of U.S. 27 and U.S. 98
Monday afternoon that threatened several structures. Several acres were scorched, and flames
were within several hundred yards of the Town Star BP gas station, but there was no damage
reported.


The liurned out vegetation left an eerie sight. A burn ban is in effect for all of Polk County
because we are well into the driest part of the year.

A building at an abandoned car lot was the

Monday on U.S. 27 near the intersection of

FEELING



Olives, a nutritional powerhouse


Since ancient times, the act of extend-
ing an olive branch has been considered
a symbol of peace. For the health-minded
it can also mean a symbol of good health.
Olive trees which originated in the
Mediterranean basin eventually spread to
other parts of the world. From the begin-
ning, various elements of the trees were
used for medicinal and culinary purposes.
References to the benefits of the olive leaf,
oil and fruit can be found even in the Old
Testament.
Not all fats are created equal. The body
needs certain amounts and types of fat to
support numerous biochemical process-
es. Olives are high in monounsaturated
fat which is particularly beneficial. Their
oil has been shown to help protect against
heart disease, stroke, cancer, arthritis
and other chronic diseases. Olive oil also
contains valuable antioxidants, vitamins
and minerals.
Several different grades of olive oil are
most commonly found in U.S. supermar-
kets: Cold-pressed EXTRA VIRGIN, which
was not heated or chemically treated
during extraction, retains its magnificent
taste and aroma, and is the purest and
most nutritious form of the oil. REFINED
olive oil, sometimes labeled as "cooking" or
"pure" olive oil, was chemically and heat-
treated, in part, to eliminate the strong
olive taste. EXTRA UIGHT olive oil is further
processed and is far removed from its
original wholesome state. Some especially
high grade olive oils are produced by small,
private growers. This oil is often more
expensive and harder to find, but is well
worth the effort because of its high quality,
flavor, and nutritional content.
For all your cooking needs stock up on
extra virgin, and cooking olive oils. Because
heat during the cooking process destroys


some of the oil's nutrition, it is best to use
the extra virgin kind for cold dishes, such as
vegetable and pasta salads, or grain pilafs.
If olive flavor is undesirable in a particular
(cold) dish, then the cooking olive oil ver-
sion can be used. For cooking and baking
use the cooking oil version.
Green, black, and purple olives come
in different shades, shapes and sizes.*
Canned ones tend to be over processed,
mushy and tasteless. The fruit is best
bought in jars or from olive bars. Olives
are included in hundreds of dishes
because of their unique, tangy taste and
meaty texture. The fruit and its oil are
used around the world in pasta, meat,
fish, grain and lentil recipes, as well as in
salads, appetizers, and in some baking.
They are also a staple of the healthful
Mediterranean-style cuisine.
Most recipes can be altered to include
olive oil instead of butter, mayonnaise or
margarine. Chopped or whole olives may
be added to dishes to enliven them and
increase nutritional value. Please note: a
doughnut does not morph into a health-
food by bathing it with olive oil... Roll out
the red carpet for the olive tree!

Senior hunger tackled head-on


The people in line at the local phar-
macy would never imagine that the
senior couple standing next to them
had not eaten a meal for more than
24 hours. The couple simply did not
complain nor reach out for help. They
stood together waiting to spend their
last $175 on much needed medicine
and there was no money left that week
for groceries.
"Seniors are more vulnerable to hun-
ger and have more difficulty obtaining
healthy foods than the average person.


A new AARP Foundation study shows
that nearly 9 million older adults face
the risk of hunger meaning they are
forced to skip meals or buy poor qual-
ity food," said Deb Harley, executive
director at Cornerstone Hospice www.
cshospice.org "The study also warns
that out-of-pocket medical expenses as
well as a growing senior population will
lead to more and more senior reliance
on food banks and assistance" added
Harley.
Cornerstone Hospice caregivers have

seen first hand how hospice families
struggle to pay for groceries in the face
of mounting medical bills. It is for this
reason that the agency began its food
pantry several years ago.
"Cornerstone Hospice Feeding
Families Food Drive kicked-off in March
with outreach to the community and
education on senior hunger. The goal
of the program is to lessen the gap
between the need for food in senior
homes and undernourished seniors by
partnering with civic-minded commu-
nity organizations focused on address-
ing community hunger needs" said Nick
Buchholz, executive director for the
Cornerstone Hospice Foundation which
is spearheading this food drive effort.
Border also added that several local
concerns have agreed to partner in the
cause. Donations and food could be
dropped-off at the following locations
throughout Polk County:
Donations and Food Drop-Off Points:
Cornerstone Hospice, 2590
Havendale Blvd. NW, Winter Haven

Hatton Insurance Agency, 322 E.
Main St., Bartow
Frostproof Chamber of Commerce,
15 E. Wall St., Frostproof
Haines City Chamber of Commerce,
35610 U.S. 27, Haines City
All local concerns will accept
monetary donations on behalf of the
non-profit hospice, grocery store gift
cards, as well as nonperishable food
donations. Some suggested food items
include canned meats, vegetables and


fruits, peanut butter, beans, jars of
apple sauce, canned stews and soups,
grains, boxed pasta and sauces, dried
beans, beverages (non-refrigerated),
shelf stable milk, juices and supplemen-
tal shakes.
"Studies are pointing toward the
epidemic of senior hunger in the next
decade and the need for community re-
sources now. Access to enough healthy
food is important to everyone, but it is
especially important when people are
particularly vulnerable to disease, or
when their life circumstances such
as limited mobility make obtain-
ing a healthy diet more difficult," said
Kathleen Border, regional development
director for the Cornerstone Hospice
Foundation. "There is a direct link
between a difficulty getting healthy
food and reports of declining health.
Poor diet among seniors has proven to
increase disability, decrease resistance
to infection, and extend hospital stays.
This is because many seniors skip meals
to purchase medications that ultimately
need to be taken with food to be safe
and effective," concluded Border.
Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative
Care, Inc., a nonprofit, community or-
ganization since 1984, provides comfort
and care to Central Florida families
experiencing life-limiting illnesses. Over
5,000 people in Lake, Sumter, Orange,

Herpes is a lifelong disease, not a life sentence


DEAR DR. ROACH: My 20-year-old
son is intelligent, handsome and popu-
lar. However, he has just confided in me
that he has contracted herpes. He and
I are devastated, since we understand
that he will have it forever. I'm worried
about the effects on his self-esteem. He
wants to be truthful with women, so he
feels most of his relationships are over.
He feels a future with marriage and
children is now out of the question. He
takes college classes, has a successful
music business and does not do drugs
or drink alcohol. Please explain what he
is up against, and advise. -T.E
ANSWER: Genital herpes simplex,
HSV-2, is extremely common about 1
adult in 6 in the U.S., 1 in 11 in Canada,
has HSV-2. Only about 20 percent of
them know they have it. He is abso-
lutely right, and should be commended
for his decision to be truthful with
potential partners. Condoms can reduce
the risk of transmission. Medications
like valacyclovir can reduce outbreaks.
And although some women may lose
interest in him once they know, I am

convinced that there will be someone
more concerned with who he is than
with what he has. Self-esteem is always
an issue when one gets a new medi-
cal condition. Having family to talk to
is very important it's much harder

tal warts explains these two common
infections in detail. Readers can obtain

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 67 years
old, and the iron in my blood is 500. 1
am told 300 is normal. The doctor said
that giving blood at the blood bank will
lower it, perhaps every eight weeks.
I also was told by my doctor it could
damage my organs, such as my heart.
How treatable is my condition? I am
worried. -A.M.
ANSWER: It sounds like you are being
diagnosed with primary hemochro-
matosis. This is a genetic condition in
which the body constantly absorbs too
much iron. Iron overload damages the
heart and the liver, among other organs.
Men and women get the disease at the
same rate, but men are diagnosed more
frequently, because the iron that women
lose in their monthly periods tends to
protect them. However, I received a
letter from a reader with experience of
women with advanced disease diag-
nosed at an early age. There can be a
lot of variability in the disease. If you
do have hemochromatosis, your family
members siblings, children should
be tested as well. The first step is to be


sure of the diagnosis. Other iron studies
from the blood support it, and there is a
genetic test as well. Bone marrow biopsy
still is occasionally done to be sure.
Treatment is also straightforward you
are right that giving blood removes
the iron from the system, but at the
beginning it may need to be much,
much more frequent than every eight
weeks. The first patient I had with this
condition needed 52 blood donations
to get his iron level down to normal.
Hematologists, gastroenterologists or
internists may all be experts in this field.

The unsimple pimple: bacteria strains good and bad


No matter how much you wash your
face, it's covered with acne-causing
bacteria. Yet the degree to which
people are plagued by pimples varies a
lot. One in five fortunate souls largely
avoids acne altogether.
What's their secret? It may have to
do with the kind of bacterial company
they keep. Researchers at UCLA and
Washington University at St. Louis
have found that there are, in fact,
"good" and "bad" strains of acne bacte-
ria. The former appear to help protect
skin from breaking out while the latter
torment teens everywhere.
The scientists plucked specimens
of Propionibacterium acnes, a type
of bacteria that resides in skin pores,
from the noses of 49 pimply vol-
unteers and 52 with clear skin and
-genetically sequenced the samples.
They found that two unique strains
of P. acnes showed up in one out of
five volunteers with acne, but rarely
in clear-skinned people. A third strain
was common on healthy, unblemished
skin but almost never found when
acne is present.
It's that third strain that has skin
scientists excited.
"We suspect that this strain con-
tains a natural defense mechanism


that enables it to recognize attackers
and destroy them before they infect
the bacterial cell," said study author
Huiying Li. "This P. acnes strain may
protect the skin, much like yogurt's
live bacteria help defend the gut from
harmful bugs."
The idea, perhaps, is to develop a
probiotic cream filled with good
P. acnes that would prevent bad strains
from taking root and ruining many a
teen's prom night.

Body of Knowledge
The average person will grow six feet
of nose hair over a lifetime.
Get me that, stat!
Donated blood stored longer than
three weeks begins to lose its capac-
ity to deliver oxygen-rich red blood
cells where needed, according to a
new Johns Hopkins University study.
Current blood bank standards allow
for at least some types of blood to be
stored for up to six weeks, suggesting
the standards may need to be revised,
though a reduction in storage time
would likely reduce inventories.

Life in Big Macs
One hour of grooming (shaving,


styling hair, brushing teeth, etc.) burns
136 calories (based on a 150-pound per-
son) or the equivalent of 0.2 Big Macs.

Phobia of the week

eating record for quarter-pound
hamburgers is 11.25 in 10 minutes,

Best Medicine
A young man called his mother in
Florida: "Mom, how are you?"
"Not too good," replied the mother.
"I've been very weak."


"Why are you so weak?"
"Because I haven't eaten in 38 days,"
the mother answered.
"That's terrible," said the son. "Why
haven't you eaten in 38 days?"
"'Because I didn't want my mouth to
be filled with food if you should call."

Observation
"Refuse to be ill. Never tell people
you are ill; never own it to yourself.
Illness is one of those things which
a man should resist on principle at
the onset." English writer Edward
G. Bulwer-Lytton (1803-1837), who
is best remembered for phrases like
"the great unwashed, pursuit of the
almighty dollar, the pen is mightier
than the sword," and the opening line
of his novel "Paul Clifford": It was a
dark and stormy night.

Top things to do to your home under $10,000


Here is the final install-
ment of the list, found on
the Trulia website by Tara
Nicholle-Nelson, of the
top 10 things you can do
for $1OK, if you're in your
home and planning to
stay put for a while:
9. Paint. A few
years back, there was
a study on what home
improvements actually
could be linked to an
increase in happiness
and well-being. One of
the most affordable was
to simply paint the rooms
of your home in colors
that fostered the target
emotions that map to
the function of the room.
For instance, painting a
bedroom a soft blue or
green fosters tranquility
and rest, while painting
a kitchen or dining room
a warmer shade might
promote the cozy fuzzy
feelings of family togeth-
erness. Painting can be
very affordable, depend-
ing on your home's size
and details, and is a great
starter do-it-yourself
project, to boot. --
My personal cost-cut-
ting tip: pick your colors
from the designer paint
swatches, but have the
paint department staff
use more affordable paint
when they custom-mix
the colors to mix.
10. Connect your
home. so-called "smart
home" systems first came
out, they were the stuff
of an MTV Cribs episode,
costing tens of thousands
of dollars to put various
home systems on a re-
mote control. But as with


all technologies, costs of
connecting your home
have come down a lot.
For anywhere from $200
to $2,000, you might be
able to have your home's
systems wired so that you
can:
JDoloreslVogel


reo,-i,'at L fule, Inc.


Control lighting, heat-
ing and AC remotely
Have your HVAC
systems and window
coverings, for example,
work in sync
Monitor your home
via video and sensors for
security and other home
crises (e.g., flood, etc.),
no matter where you are.
The best part? Even the
least expensive of these
systems now is able to
be run via a smart phone
app. Home security
providers are increasingly
offering these options,
and even some home in-
ternet/telephone provid-
ers have also gotten into
the business of affordably
connecting your home.
If you're considering
making a modest invest-
ment in a home you plan
to own for a while, you're
increasingly in the norm.
Studies show that over
50% of homeowners are
now focusing on smaller
home improvement
projects that increase
their enjoyment of their
homes even if they don't
increase its value.
