Whidden's Mobile Home Park

dedicates memorial'to veterans


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
A two-year effort to create a special
memorial to honor U.S. veterans came
to an emotional and sun-splashed
conclusion last Thursday at Whidden's
Mobile Home Park.
A special site, near the park's en-
trance, was dedicated to those who
served the nation, including 71 veter-
ans who currently call the park home.
U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Jonathan
Currea, who recruits for the Army in the
area, including in Frostproof, was the
featured speaker.
"Serving your country is making
a decision in your heart, mind and
soul that you are willing to protect the
freedom of the United States against
all enemies," Sgt. Currea said. "Serving
your country is a decision to sacrifice
personal family time, relationships,
and the everyday pleasures of life that


individuals take part in every day. As
soldiers, we understand that our mis-
sion is a sacrifice and a responsibility."
In attendance was Pvt. Joshua Smeal,
who graduated from Frostproof High
School last spring.
"He volunteered to serve his country
as a young American at 17 years of
age," Sgt. Currea noted. "Pvt. Smeal has
been one of my best recruits, and I am
confident he will do great things for our
nation and United States Army"
Sgt. Currea first enrolled in the
Army in 2004, and recently re-enlisted
through at least 2018.
He saluted those who have lost their
lives in the line of duty.
"They have served our great nation
with loyalty, duty, selfless service and
personal sacrifice. I want to personally
thank them. They will never be forgot-
ten," he said.
The idea for a veteran's memorial was

Frostproof's Weir proves


to be a 'grand' talent


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
As some of the other acts were on
stage at the Ramon Theater Saturday,
Frostproof's own Maegan Weir found
herself wandering around the building's
small lobby, trying to make sure her
nerves were in check when the time
came for her to perform.
She need not have worried.
The former talent show finalist she
was one of 12 that competed for the
top prize when the show started six
years ago broke through in a big way
Saturday, taking home the $1,000 top
prize in the annual "Frostproof's Got
Talent" show.
Her performance of "Broken Wing"
shook the Ramon, and impressed judges
to put her atop a field of 16 finalists.
"It was a tremendous performance
that capped off a tremendous night of
talent," noted Rotary Club President
James Keene. "Maegan was great, but
so was everyone else who performed.
Everyone seemed to agree that it might
have been the deepest field of talent
we've ever had for the final round."
All proceeds from the event go to-
wards the local service club's Frostproof

The bikers are back. And that's a
good thing in the eyes of most.
The 2nd Annual Frostproof Bikefest
will be held Sat., March 23, from
10 a.m.-2 p.m. along E. Wall Street and
Orange Avenue.
This year, the event is being or-
ganized by the Frostproof Chamber
of Commerce, and will benefit the
Wounded Warriors Project, after last
year's organizing group, Riding With
Angels, was unable to step forward
again this year.
The central attraction for the event
will be the Poker Run, where bikers will
trek to four stops across Polk County
before returning to Frostproof.
The poker run stops include Just
One More Bar in Plant City, Fuzzy's


Tavern and Liar's Lair Saloon in Lake
Wales, Main Street Tap Room in Avon
Park, & P&J's Recreation Center in
Frostproof.
Other activities include a 50/50
drawing, bike games, food, vendors,
and live music.
Over 35 vendors are expected to set
up along E. Wall Street and Orange
Avenue providing food, games, and
other merchandise. This is a change
from last year, when West Wall was the
focal point of events, but the Chamber
wanted to move it awaw from the Play
Park area there since many youngsters
like to use that facility on weekend
days.
"This is the first year we've taken it
on ourselves," said Chamber President
Wesley Wise. "So we're just going

Polk State Lake Wales Arts Center celebrates ribbon cutting


Polk State College will celebrate
the opening of its Polk State Lake
Wales Arts Center with a ribbon
cutting ceremony on March 21
from 3 to 5 p.m. The ceremony will
take place in the building's Updike
Hall. The Polk State Lake Wales Arts
Center is located at 1099 State Road
60 East.
Polk State President Eileen Holden
will speak at the event and Polk
State Music students will' perform.
Self-guided tours of the historic
building will also be available.
In late 2011, the College and the
Lake Wales Arts Council announced
an innovative collaboration that
involved the College accepting title
to the Lake Wales Arts Center, which
was built in 1927. In exchange, the
College agreed to renovate and
maintain the facility, which has
since been renamed the Polk State
Lake Wales Arts Center. Renovations
have included installing a steel sup-
port system to reinforce the rotunda
of the building's sanctuary, making the
structure stronger than ever before in
its more than 80-year history. Also, new


roofing tiles have been installed.
Among other work that has been
completed:
Two classrooms have received cos-
metic upgrades, including new flooring
and paint, and modern 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 repaintedand 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.
The College's first classes at the Polk
State Lake Wales Arts Center began in
January.

FORT MYERS NEWS PRESS
Alico Inc., Fort Myers-based land
management company that owns
130,400 acres in Lee, Collier, Glades,
Hendry and Polk counties, announced
it has formed a special committee
to explore a sale or merger to take
advantage of federal tax changes.
The company announced it has
hired Deutsche Bank Securities Inc.
as a financial adviser and Greenberg
Traurig, P.A. to act as legal counsel,
said Ramon Rodriguez, chairman
of both Alico Inc. and the special
committee.
"It's a matter of exploring all of the
possibilities that exist," Rodriguez
said.
The Lake Wales based Atlantic Blue
Group, the largest shareholder of Alico
Inc., with 50.6 percent of shares, noti-
fied the Alico board that it intended
to explore its options, prompting the
creation of the committee.
Federal tax law changes enacted this
year would help Atlantic Blue Group
avoid paying both federal corporate
taxes and federal income taxes
charged to shareholders if it sells its
shares this year.
Otherwise, Atlantic Blue would have
to wait until at least 2017 to sell if
it wanted to avoid taxes both at the
corporate and individual shareholder


level, Rodriguez said. That's be-
cause the company converted to a
Subchapter S corporation in 2007, and
was obligated to pay corporate tax on
any sales proceeds within 10 years.
"The board of Atlantic Blue thought
it was in the best interest of their
shareholders to explore the sale of
those shares," Rodriguez said.
The tax change isn't generating
many other business sales locally
because most companies already are
Subchapter S corporations and con-
verted long ago, said Randy Wright,
tax specialist with Markham Norton
Mosteller Wright & Co. in Fort Myers.
"I haven't seen that kind of activity,"
he said.
Atlantic Blue Trust represents the
interests of three daughters of Ben Hill
Griffin Jr. He was largely responsible
for building up Alico until his death in
1990. He left control of the company
to his son, Ben Hill Griffin III, who
was forced by his sisters to give up
control of the business in 2003.
The special committee does not
include representatives of Atlantic
Blue.
JD Alexander is the President and
Chief Executive Officer of Alico. He
has held that position since February
2010. He is the Vice-Chairman of
the Alico Board of Directors and was
appointed to that position in October
2009.

Drone debate pits rights


Will the state Legislature take the podium
from Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, and protect
Floridians from drone surveillance?
Legislation in Tallahassee appears headed that
way and it may not be a bad thing.
A bill from state Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart,
would prevent law enforcement agencies from
using unmanned drones unless they had a war-
rant or saw an explicit threat of terrorist attack.
It also would prevent the use of information
collected by drones to be used in court.
No doubt fueled by Sen. Paul's recent congres-
sional filibuster, Florida's legislation is finding a
favorable reception so far. Last week, Negron's
drone bill passed its third committee in a
unanimous vote. A companion bill has passed
two House committees. The measure has been
embraced by libertarians (the Rand Paul wing of
the Republican Party), as well as the American
Civil Liberties Union.
The big question: Is this really necessary?
It seems far-fetched to imagine squadrons
of unmanned drones patrolling the beaches,


VS.


Our Viewpoint
downtown and highways of the Sunshine
State. Then again, we must admit it gives us an
extra layer of comfort to know police agencies
wouldn't be tempted to go off in weird new direc-
tions just because they have the technology and
can feed citizens' fears.
Law enforcement is.-drawn by lure of new
technology, if it comes at a justifiable price and
helps them do their jobs.
Police already use manned helicopters to
search for suspects on the run. Nearly 20 states,
.including Florida, already permit highway
surveillance from manned aircraft. It isn't often
used.
Remember also that cities and counties
throughout Florida have now installed cameras
at intersections to record and ticket motorists,
arguing that it deters accidents caused by motor-
ists running red lights. Is the unmanned spy-in-
sky that much different?

public safety

It seems too close for comfort. There's a pos-
sibility that as costs drop the use of drones might
become widespread. A slippery slope, if you will.
Many people already are uncomfortable with
manned aircraft search and surveillance, even
when the argument for it is overwhelming, as in
the case of escaped convicts. Negron's bill does
allows for some uses for explicit probable
cause that leads to a warrant.The possibility of
wider use may be far off, but it seems downright
spooky. Why not set narrow parameters now?
The American experience has always seen a
tension between individual liberties and public
safety. The debate is contained in our DNA. It's
no surprise the emerging spy-cam technology -
as well as the military's use of unmanned drones
overseas sparks strong debate.
That's good. As for domestic uses, law demands
the Federal Aviation Administration open U.S.

and have the debate now.

and services to make the monument a
reality.
"Richard Munson started this project
about two years ago," Lee Huntsman
said. "He wanted a veterans memo-
rial somewhere in the park. He really
wanted it, so we carried it out."
The Winter Haven VFW Honor Guard
offered a 21-gun salute, and trumpet
players from Frostproof Middle Senior
High School played taps. The "Whidden
Warblers" gave a rendition of the "Battle
Hymn of the Republic," and all guests
were invited to the park's clubhouse of
cake and drinks after the ceremony.
Getting the privilege of raising the
American Flag and a POW flag to start
the event were Bob Mikolajczyk, Wayne
Miles and David Stalker. Chaplain Low
Kovack offered both the invocation and
benediction.
The park's four oldest living veterans
- Maurice Thompson (Army), Homer
Clark (Navy), Harold Boik (Army) and
Lewis Patton (Navy) got special
recognition during the program.

Local youngster


critical after shooting


A local youngster is still in critical
condition as of Tuesday morning fol-
lowing what investigators believe was
an accidental shooting with a BB gun.
Polk County Sheriff's Office detec-
tives are investigating a shooting inci-
dent in which a 10-year-old Frostproof
child was critically injured. According
to the sheriff's office, the latest infor-
mation they had was that the victim,
Skyler Richardson, was in a medically
induced coma as of Monday.
At approximately 6:53 p.m.,
Wednesday, March 13, 2013, law
enforcers received information about
a child being shot with a BB gun at 860
Otto Polk Road, Frostproof.
According to reports, detectives
investigating have learned the victim,


POLITICS
FROM PAGE 4

cling to God and guns in one breath.
I'll come back to the contradic-
tion, but there is an internal logic
here that is worth considering for a
moment.
In fact, God and guns are either
implicit or explicit in the first two
Amendments to the Constitution,
the First guaranteeing freedom of
religion and the Second (the courts
have held) guaranteeing the right
to private ownership of firearms. So
from the point of view of someone
wishing to insist on Constitutional
rights or in this case fearing that
they are threatened it's easy to
put God, guns and the Constitution
together.
For evangelicals, the fear that
their freedom of religion is being
threatened has been around for
years. While it's true that there are
occasional excessive attempts to rid
the public square of all references
to God or belief, what has mostly
been inhibited in recent years is
the hegemony that Protestants had
over the discourse in the public
square. What to some is respect for
multiculturalism is to evangelicals
a threat to their freedom to publicly
talk about Jesus Christ.
According to The Ledger, "Asked
how she dealt with critics, Palmin said
it's important to know who you are,
and that's why she speaks out for
God publicly in a country where
she said it's often frowned upon or
against the law to talk about reli-
gious beliefs ... 'What has happened


and his older brother, 13-year-old
Taylor Richardson, were outside of the
family's residence on Otto Polk Road
shooting targets with their BB rifles.
Police say the children's mother,
34-year-old Heather Richardson, was
inside the residence preparing dinner,
and that her boyfriend, Gary Brown,
was also inside the home all four share.
As the boys were playing, PCSO
reports say that Taylor pointed his
gun at Skyler and the 10-year-old boy
was struck in the head at close range.
Taylor alerted his mother and emer-
gency medical services were notified.
Skyler was air-lifted to St. Joseph's
Hospital in Tampa. Police reports
indicated that Skyler's injuries appear
to be accidental.


when we can't say his name in
public?' (she said)."
But let's return to the combination
of God and guns. The ability to be-
lieve that the nature of God does not
forbid the use of weapons requires a
particular kind of Christian theology,
one that compartmentalizes Jesus'
decidedly pacifist declarations, such
as "All who take the sword will per-
ish by the sword," among others.
Speaking as a practicing Christian
myself, I'm certainly in favor of free-
dom of religion; I have no problem
with hunting; and I'm even willing
to entertain a discussion about
whether Christians may engage in
self-defense under some circum-
stances. But that is not the spirit of
Palin's remark.
"Cling to your God, your guns,
your Constitution" is a seamless
ideology that would have Jesus
waving the American flag with one
hand and clicking off the safety of
his assault rifle with the other. It
assumes that God created America
specifically so that Christians could
stand on a public school teacher's
desk in their boots and preach that
all those who do not accept Jesus
as their savior are going to hell. It
assumes that God gave Americans
the right to fire at will with whatever
weapon they damn well want.
And I don't believe that. Dear
Ms. Palin, consider this possibil-
ity: Clinging to God might actually
require believers to throw away their
guns and turn their backs on the
Constitution.

Students crop up at Agri-Fest


ByJEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Male calves have no name but female
calves do.
On Wednesday, students from Snively
Elementary in Winter Haven weren't en-
tirely sure of the answer to the question.
They sat in the aluminum stands at
the W.H. Stuart Conference Center by
the horse arena and took questions
from IFAS' Bridgette Carlisle as arena
cattle rancher Earlow Constine sat on
his horse, Happy, and helped get an-
swers from the students whenever they
could. The student who came up with
the correct answer got a candy prize.
"Little girl cows are called heifers but
boy cows don't have a name," she finally
answered. But, she asked what do they
call (boy calves)?
Quickly she answered they're called
bulls whether they're young or old.
The questions continued and in help-
ing to celebrate the VIVA 500 which is
the Department of Agriculture's marking
of 500 years of agriculture in Florida, the
25th Annual Polk County Agri-Fest took
that theme.
"Five-hundred years ago cows were
first brought to the United States," she
told the fourth-graders. "Does anyone
know which state it was brought to?"-
Dozens of hands went up, and Texas
was answered, which was incorrect,
before one student correctly named
Florida.
They were first brought to Florida
by Ponce de Leon, who also taught the
native Americans how to raise them.
Agri-Fest, which continues every
morning until March 22, has fourth-
graders from all over the county attend
each day. Carole McKenzie, the execu-
tive director of the Polk County Farm
Bureau, said about 600 fourth-graders
a day visit the Stuart Center and about
6,000 will attend the two-week event in
the 10 days it is open.
Agri-Fest was created 25 years ago to
teach elementary school children about
agriculture as it is one of the largest
industries in Polk County. When it was
created, John Stewart, who was the
superintendent, suggested it beopen to
fourth-graders only as those students
had Florida history in its curriculum. It
was started by the agricultural commu-
nity and it has grown year after year.
This year there is an agricultural
display, a blueberry demonstration,
orange juice squeezing lesson, horticul-
tural demonstration and seed planting,
and fossil hunting at Mosaic Express,
Palmetto Elementary student Delilah
Martinez won a basket full of education
goodies because she was Big MoE's
80,000th visitor since the exhibit started
in 2010.
The mobile exhibit has 10 interactive
exhibits where students can push but-
tons and pull levers as they learn about
the phosphate industry.
"Our goal is to educate every person

who walks through that door on the role
phosphates play in growing our food,"
said Jim Johnson, public affairs coordi-
nator at Mosaic. "We have adults and
kids alike leaving here saying, 'I never
knew that.'"
The interactivity of learning about the
agriculture industry is part of what has
made Agri-Fest popular each year. In the
orange juice demonstration, students
had the opportunity to squeeze oranges
and drink the juice, testing the theory
they saw in the video where they were
told people can tell which state an or-
ange comes by the way it looks, and he
claimed Florida has the juiciest oranges.
In the horticulture display students
planted seeds in a cup they got to take
home. The fossil digging students got to
keep things they found.
They also learned while they spent
their morning there.
"Florida turned into a great place to
raise cows and Florida cattle ranchers
have a name that has become com-
mon," Carlisle asks the students. "What
are they called?"
Hands were raised, but the an-
swer didn't come from the Snively
Elementary students visiting
Wednesday. Then, giving them a hint,
Constine picked up a whip and started
to snap with a crackle sounding each
time.
Still no correct answer, though there
were offers.
Carlisle offered letters one a time.
Still no correct answer.
Finally, she said, "crackers."
"It comes from the sound that it
makes ... and do you use the whip?" she
asked turning to Constine.
He said he uses it to direct his dogs
but emphasized no animal ever gets
hit with a whip they react only to the
sound.

Children help the children


Hundreds pack food for homeless kids to make it through spring break


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

While many children may welcome
Friday afternoon for fun and games,
for the start of the weekend a group
of about 120 spent their afternoon
at the Highland Park Church of the
Nazarene packing food for homeless
children to make it through spring
break next week.
As part of the KidsPACK program,
the children raised $600 and with
some corporate donations, the
children packed enough food to feed
120 children three meals a day for
the week starting March 25, which is
spring break for Polk County Schools.
"We did it this week so it's packed
throughout next week for spring
break, that starts Friday," said
Sarah Rogers, the director of child
development for the Church of the
Nazarene.
Members of KidsPACK were on
hand for the event and the packs
will be delivered to the area schools
where they will be given to children
who will get them, she said.
Normally the children at the
church pack up weekend meals for
homeless students three Saturdays
a month, she said, but this under-
taking took a bit more of raising
money and meant collecting a lot
more food; food that is easy for the
children to use without having adult
supervision.
They raised money for the spring
break collection, she said, "with their
allowance, tooth fairy money, some


parents give checks ... anything they
possibly can."
Some of the food items they give
to students is stuff they don't need
help to eat. Those items include Chef
Boyardee, Pop Tarts, breakfast bars,
apple sauce, fruit cups, trail mix and
raisin packs to name a few.
"Some of these kids may have pizza
on Friday at school and then not eat
again until they get free breakfast at
school on Monday," she said, adding
during spring break these children
can go days without eating.
Though the students who do the
packing, mostly those in the Small
Wonders preschool, Goal Seekers and
Eagles programs, they never meet the
students they're making food boxes
for, but Rogers said, they probably
do know them.
"They don't get the names of the
kids," she said. "But, they go to
school with these children so they
probably do know them."
Because they are younger children
they probably don't know the chil-
dren off hand, but the adults do and
can spot those who need the service.
She said teachers spot children
putting a school lunch they get into a
napkin or they can see a child is not
necessarily wearing their own clothes
and sometimes the children talk to a
teacher.
"Usually classroom teachers get
the word first and it revolves every
school year," the former teacher said.
"It's sometimes hard to find them."
While the Church of the Nazarene
has adopted 120 children, there are

Friday for homeless students at the Church of
the Nazarene.
hundreds more homeless or what
is called high-risk children that fall
into this category. And, the children
are not necessarily in the same
place week to week. Some live with
other families temporarily or some
find a place to stay no matter where
it is.
"I had a student once in Bartow
living in a different motel every other
weekend," Rogers said.
Some corporate sponsors the pro-
gram has include Sam's Club, Flying
Tigers, Publix, 98.3 FM radio, 97 FM
radio, CB Citizens Trust and Garland
Insurance. To find out more about

Florida unemployment at 4-year,. low-,


STAFF, WIRE REPORT

TALLAHASSEE The jobless rate
dipped slightly in Florida in January,
but the tiny percentage point decline
marked a huge psychological mile-
stone. However in Polk County, the
figure went up .01 percent.
In dropping from 7.9 percent in
December to 7.8 percent in January,
Florida's jobless rate went below the
national rate, which was 7.9 percent
in January, for the first time since
January of 2008.
Gov. Rick Scott, who ran almost
solely on a platform of lowering the
state's jobless rate, it was more vin-
dication that his "let's get to work"
theme is showing success.
"Everything we do is geared toward
job creation today we have more


proof that: It's working," Scott said
in a statement, hitting a new catch-
phrase he's rolled out in the last
couple of months.
In Polk County, January's figure was
8.8 percent after it posted 8.7 percent
in December. But compared to last
January's figure, the unemployment was
well below then, which was 10.5 percent.
The 8.8 percent though put Polk
County as the 18th highest county
in Florida and the Lakeland-Winter
Metropolitan Statistical Area ranked
sixth in the state.
Scott went to Mitsubishi Power
Systems in Orlando to highlight
the new state numbers, while con-
tinuing to call for a tax break for
manufacturers who are buying new
equipment.
"We are glad to see our unemploy-
ment rate fall below the national


average for the first time in years,
but our work isn't done until every
Floridian who wants a job can find
one," Scott said.
In dropping to 7.8 percent,
Florida's jobless rate is now at its
lowest point since November of 2008,
near the beginning of the recession,
and down from over 9 percent just a
year ago.
And rather than simply improv-
ing the rate by losing workers from
the workforce as was the case
with some earlier gains Florida's
economy created jobs in January,
the Department of Economic
Opportunity said.
There were 15,400 more jobs
in January than in December, a
0.2 percent increase, putting the
total employment in the state
at more than 7.4 million. Trade,


Transportation and utilities led the
way in job growth among all sectors,
DEO said.
A tourism rebound is also start-
ing to be evident. The hospitality
industry continued to come back
in January, with 3.5 percent growth
in job creation. Construction was
slightly down month-to-month, but
year-over-year the building industry
is up 7 percent.
Monroe County, which is made
up of the Florida Keys, continued to
have the state's lowest unemploy-
ment rate at 4.6 percent, followed
by Walton, Alachua and Okaloosa
counties, all at 6 percent or lower.
Hendry County continued to
struggle, with an 11.4 percent unem-
ployment rate. Flagler, Putnam, Dixie
and St. Lucie counties all had rates
above 10 percent.


MeKeel offers spending plan for mortgage settlement


NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA

The Florida House Appropriations
Committee will be deciding how to use
about $200 million in mortgage fraud
money the state received last year as part
of a $32 billion national settlement with
five of the nation's largest loan services.
Appropriations Committee Chairman
Rep. Seth McKeel, R-Lakeland, proposed
a committee bill that would offer down
payment assistance for teachers and other
professionals with low incomes in fields
where recruitment and retention have


presented significant challenges.
It would also pay for residential reha-
bilitation and reconstruction projects in
blighted areas, encourage partnerships
with the private sector in providing hous-
ing to elderly and low income residents
and provide housing grants for low income
university students. The measure also
would extend legal assistance to homeown-
ers facing foreclosure and increase funding
for courts and clerks offices to address
foreclosures.
Earlier this year, the Joint legislative
Budget Commission approved a $60 million


package of relief that would include
$35 million in down payment assistance to
first-time homebuyers, who under federal
guidelines have not owned a home in
the previous three years. The maximum
benefits of $7,500 can be used to help
with closing costs on 30-year, fixed rate
mortgages.
The Senate proposal for the money is
expected to be released as a committee bill
by Sen. Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando, chair-
man of the Appropriations Subcommittee
on Transportation, Tourism, and Economic
Development.

By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
.A proposal to ban any and all
tobacco products from indoor and
outdoor school venues and trans-
portation is under consideration a
recommendation made by an agency
helping the Polk school district fine-
tune its policy manual.
SThis might present difficulties for
those with serious tobacco habits,
making it difficult to sit through
a three-hour sporting event, for
example. But according to Debbie
Zimmerman, the district's wellness
director, there is already a ban on
tobacco at school sports events a
policy announced at the start of each
game. Infractions can result in a $250
fine plus a six-week ban from the
activity, according to Zimmerman,
but the district's athletic director Don
Bridges said there are no fines cur-
rently levied by the schools.
He did say, however, that if a coach
or player is using tobacco they can be
ejected by the officials and the Florida
High School Athletic Association
deals with the punishment.
Asked if people are pretty coopera-
tive when they are asked not to smoke
or use tobacco at the events, Bridges
said, "Very cooperative; most school
districts have the same rules. When
the teams are from out of state we
have had some issues."
Bridges said he does not think
the current rules have cut down the
number of parents and/or visitors
who come to games or events.
The Florida Clean Indoor Air Act
was amended in 2011 to allow school
districts the authority to designate its
property as tobacco-free, according to
Zimmerman.
The proposed new policy will cover
all forms of tobacco, including snuff,
according to Zimmerman, and will
do away with designated smoking
areas on school campuses, (currently
allowed out of the sight of students.)


"Another concern that I hear a lot
from principals regards smoking in
the car pick-up and drop off zones at
schools. The tobacco-free initiative
would do away with that as well," she
said.
The bright side of all this is that free
quit-smoking programs as well as free
nicotine-replacement products (such
as Nicorette) will be available to those
wishing to give up the habit.
"All of our wellness employees are
trained in smoking cessation, also,"
Zimmerman said. The programs that
are available to our employees now
will also be available to the public. I
know it's very hard to quit."
The list of tobacco products that
would be outlawed includes common
products everyone has heard of, such
as cigars, cigarettes and pipes, as well
as some that may result in puzzle-
ment, such as snus, orbs, sticks and
strips, Periques, and Bidi.
At any rate, tobacco will be ban-
ished in any and all forms if the
policy is approved by the board when
they vote on their updated policy
manual, probably in June.
The board heard a presentation
from Zimmerman on the policy
at their Feb. 19 work session, and
were asked for their support, with
Superintendent John Stewart reply-
ing, "What's not to support about
this?" but a formal vote has not been
taken.
According to Zimmerman, six of
the 10 school districts comprising
the Central Florida Public School
Board Coalition already have such
policies. The four that still have
smoke-free, not total tobacco-free
policies are Polk, Brevard, Manatee
and Hillsborough.
Reasons given for the stepped-up
policy include serving as a positive
role model for students, reducing
children's observation of tobacco
use, providing safe environments for
children and adults by reducing expo-
sure to tobacco smoke and preparing


students for the realities of smoke-
free workplaces and communities.
According to literature Zimmerman
provided, from the Florida Tobacco
Cessation Alliance, smoking alone
costs employers $4.4 billion in work-
place productivity loss, $7.3 billion
in direct health-care expenditures,
higher average insured payments
($1,145 vs. $762) and time spent on
non-productive smoking-related
activities; four weeks per year.

42nd Annual ART SHOW ____________


Artfully born


How the art

By CASSIE JACOBY
CJACOBY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

The Lake Wales Branch of the
American Association of University
Women started the arts show as part of
the 'Arts Festival Week." The dedicated
group of art patrons was concerned
about a lack of knowledge of the arts
among local students. In 1972, the
first festival was a week-long event at
the Southgate Shopping Center that
incorporated musical events, a history
of fashion show, the Baroque Players of
Rollins College, the Warner Southern
Chorus and, almost as an afterthought,
a sidewalk art
show.
Local artists
were invited to
enter the side-
walk show
and 15 were
accepted for
the first event.
Refreshments
were pur-
chased and
passed
around dur-
ing the day
to the artists.
This was the
birth of our
hospitality
committee.
To
encourage -,.
students, .. '

prizes
were
given for
winners
of an Art Show
poster contest. A student ceramic
show also was held at the Lake Wales
Library.
In 1973, due to the popular and suc-
cessful art show, the event was moved
to downtown Lake Wales. Booths were
added this year along with set-up
committee.
In 1974, the Arts Council dropped the
festival and began offering a concert
series. Serious consideration was given
to providing a quality fine art show.
The number of artists participating that
year rose to 45.
In the late 1970s, Helen Aufford was
the first Lake Wales Arts Council chair
and local artist Reggie Strange came
up with the idea of a Purchase Prize
program that continues to this day. The
Student Art Show moved from the li-
brary to the Lake Wales Depot Museum.
In 1987, the Lake Wales Art Show
moved to its current location along the
shores of Lake Wailes.
; Today the show has expanded to
include family fun for the whole family
throughout the weekend.

- 42nd Annual ART SHOW A"



In the beginning



How the 44th Annual Student Art Show began


By CASSIE JACOBY
CJACOBY @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
The "mother" of the Lake Wales
Student Art Show gave "birth" to the first
show 44 years ago. In 1968, when Ann
Norton was the first full time art teacher
at the junior high school in Lake Wales,
she wanted to show off the talent of her
students.
"I thought 'gee, their work is so beau-
tiful,'" the youthful 84-year-old recalled.
- "We were placing the artwork on easels
in the cafetorium at PTA meetings and
I thought 'we have to do better than
this.'"
Her good friend Historic Lake Wales
Society Depot Museum Executive
Director Mimi Hardman, whose chil-
dren were in her classes, suggested hav-
ing the art show at the Depot since there
was no arts center at the time. Norton
had a hand in solving that problem, too.
When she and two other friends, Fran
Updike and Milford Myhre, then the car-
illonneur at Bok Tower Gardens, found
out that Holy Spirit Catholic Church
planned to build a new church and tear
down the historic 1927 building to make
space for a service station or doctor's
offices, a dream was born.
"Fran attended the church and knew
where a key was hidden so we snuck in
and started prowling around the build-
ing," she revealed. "We all dreamed each
in our own way about turning it into an
arts center."
Updike donated $100,000 as the seed
money to create the Lake Wales Arts
Center. In 1989, it was purchased by the
Lake Wales Arts Council. In 1990, the
Center was accepted on the National
Register of Historic Places. After exten-
sive restorations and repairs, the Center
opened in 1991. Updike Hall became the
Student Art Show's permanent home.
After ownership of the building was
Transferred to Polk State College last

Norton and current chair Melody McKenna

at the Lake Wales Depot Museum. The show
runs through April 6.


year, even more extensive renovations
were made. Norton's art classes have al-
ready resumed even before next week's
grand opening. The public is invited to
attend a ribbon cutting ceremony from
3-5 p.m. on Thursday, Mar. 21.
Even though she never intended
to be a teacher, Norton's fingerprints
have left her artistic touch throughout
the community.
Melody McKenna, Lake Wales
Student Art Show chair for the past
six years, sent her own children to
Norton's arts camp each summer.
Norton inspired the retired classroom
teacher to take on the huge volunteer
project.
"I don't have a lot of art in my
background, but I'm an organizer,"
described McKenna. "When we had
the space in the Center, we expanded
to include 24 schools in the show. With
all the renovations, we had-to con-
dense this year's show to 14 schools
from Dundee, Frostproof, Haines City
and Lake Wales students, but we plan
to have more schools in the future."
Due to renovations at the Center,
this year's 44th Annual Student Art
Show will return "home" to the Depot..
Sponsored by Sorensen and Schade,
the show will open on Saturday,
March 23. The Depot, located at 325
S. Scenic Hwy., also will be open on
Sunday, March 24th. The exhibit will
be open from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Monday
through Saturday. On April 6 from
10 a.m.-noon, winners will receive
their cash awards at a special ceremony
and ice cream social at the Depot. The
exhibit and awards ceremony will be
free to the public.
Ridge area schools showcasing
student art this year include: Alturas,
Babson Park, Ben Hill Griffin, Bethune
Academy, Dundee, Eastside, Frostproof,

ART SHOW


Community Chairs and Letter from the Chair


By CASSIE JACOBY
CJACOBY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
It's been an honor and pleasure to
serve as.the chair of this year's art show.
Thanks to the dedication of our profes-
sional team of volunteers, we're soaring
to new heights. We've added many new
improvements to make the show even
more enjoyable including 95 of some
of the most talented artists who will
showcase their artwork.
We have significantly improved the
public parking by moving the area to
North Lakeshore Blvd. across from the
ball fields. Please follow the signs for
FREE PARKING.
Continuing our Purchase Prize
"Gifts of Art" program, we're thrilled to
announce that we've collected more
than $7,000 in commitments to pre-
purchase art. That combined with our
cash prizes totalling $22,500 brings the
total amount of prizes close to our goal
of $30,000.
We also added more entertainment,
artist talks and demos with Molly
Doctrow, Rita Wickramasinghe and
David Price.
The Lake Wales Charter Schools have
planned creative and engaging activi-
ties which include a robotics exhibit,
steel drum performance, an instrument
petting zoo and other activities to open
young imaginations. Check the sched-
ule at the Children's Activities Tent and
your child sign up for a wide range of
artistic explorations appropriate for
pre-school to high school age children.
- Last, but not least, delicious new
food choices will be served by Little
Joe's.
Your support makes our art show one
of the finest in the Southeast.

Diets different for cats and dogs


The dog may be man's best friend
but the cat runs the household in many
families. Where affection gushes and
drools freely from our canine compan-
ions, it is parceled out occasionally at
the whim of our furry felines. And so it
has been through the battle of the ages.
Cats are definitely not small dogs. Our
discussions over the next several weeks
will have a feline friendly focus. You

are what you eat so let's find out how
a cat's nutritional needs are different
from a dog's.
Dogs and cats have evolved different
feeding strategies over eons of time.
Cats are obligate carnivores or meat
eaters, the cat cannot sustain its life
unless it consumes animal protein.
Dogs however are omnivores meaning
they can digest and utilize both plant
and animal food sources. Dogs by
nature are still primarily meat eaters
and many dogs go undernourished by
cheap grain based dog foods. Grain


based cat foods are even worse.
This basic difference is why cats
have a much higher protein require-
ment than dogs. Cats use protein for
energy as well as growth, repair and
maintenance. Many diets use grains
and carbohydrates for a cheap energy
source. This works for an omnivore,
but can lead to obesity and disease in
carbohydrate sensitive animals. This
is one theory as to why cats fed small
amounts of food can get so fat.

DIETS


FROM PAGE 22

A wild feline's natural diet is high
protein and fat and very low in car-
bohydrate content. They are Atkin's
Diet eaters with less than 10 percent
carbohydrate acquired from their
carnivorous menu. Many commercial
foods and dry foods in particularly
are 40-60 percent carbohydrate. This
unnatural blend can cause a multitude
of health consequences from obesity
and diabetes to digestive disturbances
and inflammatory bowel disease. Stick
with a high quality high protein diet
for your kitty and they will stay happier
and healthier.
There are many nutrients required by
cats specifically that are not necessary
in a dog's omnivorous diet. Cats require
Vitamin A in its active form which
can only be found in animal proteins.
Niacin, an essential B vitamin, is also
unable to be made by the cat and must
be eaten.
Several amino acids, which are the


building blocks of proteins, are essen-
tial in the cat diet. Cats are extremely
sensitive to even a single meal deficient
in Arginine, whereas dogs can make
their own Arginine.
Taurine is an amino acid not found
in plant tissues but only meats (animal
protein). It was found to be essential to
cats by Dr. Paul Pion while researching
blindness in cats in the 1970s. Taurine
is important for healthy functioning of
the retina, heart, bile fluid and certain
aspects of reproduction in our feline
friends only. A diet deficient in taurine
will cause a form of heart muscle
weakness in cats called dilated cardio-
myopathy. Now all well balanced feline
diets are fortified with taurine.
As you can see there are many
nutritional and biochemical differences
between our two most favorite furry
companions. These complexities make
dietary formulation by a nutritionist
imperative. Home cooked diets for cats
can cause serious nutritional deficien-
cies so talk to your veterinarian before
taking your cats health in your own
hands. Despite Garfield's carvings, cats
cannot live on lasagna alone.

Frostproof's Casey Thomas gets ready to go wide at home plate to try and beat this throw during
high school baseball action last week. The Bulldogs defeated All Saints Academy, 9-2, after losing
to the same team 8-6 two days prior on the road. Frostproof is in action tonight at Lake Region
and at home Friday against Avon Park before spring break.

games against the Saints,
winning 9-2 at home and
losing 8-6 in Winter Haven.


Frostproof's Marcus Ramos comes up a little short on this slide at third base in action last week

FEELING


Health Expo focused on the east side


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

On Saturday, April 13, there will be a
health fair in Mulberry that will give all
county residents updates and tests but it
is primarily to focus on those who live in
Mulberry.
In an effort to combat this problem, a
$500,000 federal grant will go some way to
create a health clinic there.
"Mulberry was chosen because of the
great need there, according to Census
data," said Helen Sears of the'Central
Florida Planning Council, which will
run the 5,000-square foot clinic. "There
are considerable needs in Mulberry that
are not being addressed. (The clinic) is
designed to serve the citizens of Mulberry,
but it is for everyone."
There are also six other health clinics,
she said, but according to a recently taken
survey of Mulberry residents the distance
to seek and maintain health is a primary
concern.
The survey showed 33.1 percent of
respondents prefer to get health care in
town and 28.8 percent would use it.
The survey also showed that 54.2 per-
cent of the respondents said the commu-
nity would benefit from having additional
healthcare providers and 38.4 percent
disagreed strongly the community does
not have enough health care providers in
the county.
SThese results come from a city that
statistics show have 7 percent more
people who-suffer from arthritis than in
the-rsto-6f the county, 2.5 percent more
tan county suffer from asthma, 4 percent
more have high cholesterol, 2.5 percent
yf the people suffer more from diabetes
than those in the rest of the county. And,
49 percent of the city's residents are obese.
This comes from a city where 56.4 have
heak&n. insurance compared to 76 percent


of the county's population have health
insurance.
Sears said that two problems faced by
Mulberry is "Diabetes and there's a high
rate of asthmaa"
At the opening of the clinic, much
of what may be needed for Mulberry
residents may not be addressed, but that
is coming. Gaye Williams, the chief execu-
tive officer of the Central Florida Regional
Planning Council, said the clinic will
serve school-age children when it opens
because that is what the grant money is
for, but eventually it will serve everyone.
And, the other thing is the clinic is not
coming soon.
The city of Mulberry donated the land
for the clinic which is about an acre on
the corner of State Road 60 and Prairie
Mine Road. A brownfield studyshows the
site has been determined to be clean. This
would be the sixth health care clinic for


Central Florida Health Care. The others
are in Frostproof, Dundee, Lake Wales,
Winter Haven and Lakeland.
The grant, which the county got in
December, allows the city two years
to build the site. Ground has not been
broken, Sears said.
"We're working toward that goal but
we're hoping it will be sooner than that,"
Sears said.
And while the expo is not directly
related to the clinic it does tie to it in two
areas. It is designed for everyone in the
county, while it is also to let people know
there is another nearby facility in east Polk
County to serve health needs. The expo
is aimed for adults whereas the clinic is
planned to treat children. Everyone who
attends the expo should get their health
checked there and there will be other
items available to keep the children from
being too bored at a health expo.


IF YOU GO
WHAT: Mulberry Health Awareness & Wellness Expo
WHERE: Mulberry Civic Center, 901 E. 5th St.,
Mulberry
WHEN: 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, April 13
WHY: To promote health to county residents of any
age and focus on Mulberry residents

While the focus is on general health
awareness, careers, nutrition, home and
fire safety, fitness and health risk facts and
will have health agencies, civic organiza-
tions and other health vendors on hand
there will also be a bounce house, face
painting, games and snacks and other
items they say will both entertain and
educate the youth.
"The expo is aimed at adults but the
kids should get there too," Sears said. "The
library will be reading to the kids."


Lakeland Regional invests in future of healthcare


At its upcoming March 25 meet-
ing, Lakeland Regional's Board
of Directors plan to vote on the
first phases of a multi-year Master
Facility Plan, which includes build-
ing a state-of-the-art medical tower.
This expansion is part of Lakeland
Regional's ongoing commitment
to deliver the highest quality
healthcare for the region.
"This expansion represents one
way in which we have partnered


with the Watson Clinic and the City
of Lakeland to realize the vision and
potential of establishing a medical mall
corridor. Having our respective cam-
puses come together, like this, creates a
modern health care destination for the
region that ensures the best health out-
comes for patients and families," said
Elaine Thompson, president and CEO
of Lakeland Regional Health Systems.
The new medical tower will be across
the street from Lakeland Regional's


existing Emergency Department on
Parkview Place and will physically join
with the north side of the hospital
through interior over-the-street con-
nectors. It will include a new Surgical
Suite with the capacity for 17 hybrid-
sized operating rooms designed to
accommodate the latest technology
and equipment.
Additionally, Lakeland Regional
plans to build a new clinical aca-
demic building on the south side

MCANNADAY @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
By Friday's 4 p.m. cutoff, 23 people
had applied for the top post in the
Polk County School District, two local
administrators
among their
ranks.
John Small,
Senior Director
of Workforce
Education, and
David Lewis,
Associate
TSuperintendent
of Learning, have
each applied
for the position
David Lewis of Polk County
School District
Superintendent,
a position
currently filled
by interim
superintendent
John Stewart,
who served three
elected terms
now has previ-
ously come back
to temporarily
take the helm
John Small following the
retirement of
Sherrie Nickell.
The new superintendent, when
selected, will be paid within a range
of $210,000 to $260,000 depending on


a number of factors including experi-
ence and education. It is no longer an
elected position and the school board
will choose a person for the job.
John Small: In his resume, Small, a
Lakeland resident, lists some ac-
complishments of which he is most
proud. Among these: Creating Polk
County Schools' career academy
system of 27 middle school pre-
academies and 55 high school acad-
emies and instituting the Penn Foster
High School online program at Ridge
Career Center as a dropout retrieval
program, and implementing a post-
secondary avionics program at Traviss
Career Center and received (Federal
Aviation Administration) FAA certifi-
cation for airframe mechanics.
Small was instrumental in estab-
lishing and finding funding for the
Chain of Lakes Collegiate High School
on the Winter Haven and Lakeland
Polk State College campuses. He
wrote the charter establishing it as
a charter school focused on both
AA and AS degrees and "accepting
students exhibiting desire rather than
the highest aptitude."
Small started his career with the
school system in 1986, teaching math
and shop at Bartow High School.
Small has a bachelor's degree in
Technology Education from California
University of Pennsylvania, and a
master's in Education Leadership
from Nova University.
David Lewis: Lewis, a resident of
Fort Meade, has been associated with


education for 32 years as a teacher, princi-
pal, then administrator. As Polk's Associate
Superintendent for Learning, Lewis has
overseen and guided the advanced place-
ment programs within the county to levels
that brought the state's top honor last year
and honor roll status this year.
Also among his notable achieve-
ments, Lewis lists conceptualizing
and implementing the STEAM
(Science, Technology, Engineering,
Arts and Math academies in all Polk
Middle schools, with planned expan-
sion to feeder elementary schools. He
also developed a three-year imple-

Do I need to be present for a home inspection?


It is not a
requirement
for you to
be pres-
ent during
the home
inspection.
If you have
any noted
concerns,
make sure the inspector
is aware of the issues so
he can address them with
you after the inspection.

Are other types of
inspections required?
No inspections are
required, but it is advised
in order to verify from
an expert that there is
nothing majorly wrong
with the home. A Termite
inspection is advis-
able to help determine
any issues with "wood
destroying organisms"
or "rotten wood". Home
inspectors are trained to
identify problems that
may not be readily visible
to the buyer.
What about Chinese
Drywall or Mold?


Carrie Cornelius




Prime Plus Real Estate, Inc


There are inspectors
that specialize in these
fields. They should be
contacted if there is evi-
dence of mold or Chinese
drywall present in the
home. Chinese drywall is
most common in newer
homes built between
the years of 2004-2006.
Visible signs of Chinese
drywall include corrosion
of copper coils, faucets,
or anything contain-
ing metal. There is also
a noticeable, strong
sulfur smell. Mold could
develop from leaking
plumbing pipes, roof
leaks, or areas that are
exposed to excessive
moisture. This also has a
strong smell and is visu-
ally black in color.
