City's 10Oth Relay for Life this weekend

Cancer fundraiser getting close to $250,000 in contributions


By JAMES COULTER and BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
More teams, more fun, and the
number one goal, more money
for cancer research.
Expect it all this weekend as
Frostproof celebrates its 10th
American Cancer Society Relay
for Life, starting at 6 p.m. at the
Wall Street Play Park.
This year's chairman, Sandy
Sackett, said that Frostproof
has raised nearly $250,000 over
the first nine years, and hopes
that with this year's event, that


milestone number will be passed.
"We're really hoping to go big
this year," she said.
There are all kinds of reasons
to visit and be part of the com-
munity event. There is lots of
food for sale, including several
teams that will be selling break-
fast on Saturday morning, there's
a DJ that will be on hand to keep
things moving all night long,
and even a special Zumba event
scheduled for midnight Saturday
morning, a sunrise service
Saturday and a fun corn hole
event.


"We have something going
all night long. We have a full
schedule," she added, "and it's
supposed to be good weather.
We're all very, very excited that it's
finally here."
Sackett said her involvement
comes from not only knowing
people who have had cancer, but
her hope for a cure as well.
"It's pretty much as everyone's
story We've all lost friends and
relatives to cancer," she said. "My
big motivation are my daughters.

Each year, the Relay for Life is kicked off by the special "Survivor's Lap,'
honoring those who have defeated cancer. This was the group last year at
Frostproof's ninth Relay event.


High School seeking students from Frostproof

Charter school also recruiting in Dundee, Winter Haven


ByCASSIEJACOBY
CJACOBY @HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Turning Blue Devils and
Bulldogs into Highlanders.
That's the dream of Lake Wales
High School as it expands its
recruitment efforts to neighboring
communities.
"We're happy to announce
plans to expand bus service to
include Frostproof, Dundee and
downtown Winter Haven," said
Daniele Shick, LWHS assistant


principal. "We already have more
than 100 students from Winter
Haven and hope to accommodate
the increasing desire of other area
students who wish to attend our
school."
Shick pointed to a wide range
of core classes, electives, Career
Academies, an International
Baccalaureate Program, after-
school activities and sports that
add to the desirability of LWHS.

In the stands, friends and relatives
are holding their breath.
You're on the mound, you can
hardly breathe, your heart is pound-
ing, sweat dripping off your brow,
you're getting ready to pitch fastballs
to such baseball greats as Otis Nixon,
Marquis Grissom, Javy Lopez and
David Justice, men that for years have
been your heroes.
For most baseball fans this would
only be a daydream, but for Chris
Edwards of Frostproof, this Major
League Experience became a reality


when he attended the Atlanta Braves
Fantasy Camp at ESPN's Wide World
of Sports complex in Kissimmee this
winter.
In all, 66 fans ranging in age from
25 to the mid 70s, made the journey
from as far north as Canada and as
far west as California to participate in
this five-day dream.
The first day was spent with the
campers checking into their accom-
modations at theWyndham Bonnett
Creek Resort, and an orientation
where the staff let them know what to
expect during their stay.
Next was the welcome night party
where they met not only their fellow


and students might consider her
school.
"I think the biggest draw is the
teaching staff," added Donna
Dunson, LWHS principal: "We
have worked in the past year and a
half to hire teachers who have high
expectations and keep the future
of each student clearly in mind as
they design a program for them.

you are a struggling reader, you

Family Elder Law
A Firm Helping Seniors & Those Who Love Them

Attorney Jason A. Penrod is announcing the opening
of Family Elder Law at 225 E. Stuart Ave. in Lake Wales.


Family Elder Law is dedicated to assisting the elderly
and theifamilies with the challenges that accompany
aging. Whether it is Crisis Nursing Home Medicaid
Planning; VA Benefit Planning; Special Needs
Planning; or Proactively Planning for one's affairs,
our team prides itself in providing solutions.


Jason would like to thank his previous firm, especially
partners, Jim Weaver and Jay McClendon, for all of
their support. He also appreciates his clients and
those involved in helping make his vision become a
reality. "I am truly blessed to call Lake Wales home."





In their rush to distance themselves from the
scandal involving former Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll
and the ballyhooed bust of alleged Internet cafe
scam artists, Florida legislators seem poised to
shut down any other type of amusement center
that is vaguely similar.
They are going overboard.
As far as we can tell, the Internet cafes that
proliferate in strip malls throughout our region
(but not Polk County) do nothing more than
provide a little afternoon's fun and excitement for
the Social Security set. Do they seem tacky? Sure. Is
it possible gambling addicts will drop the mortgage
payment into a slot machine? It is.
With the help of our crusading Sheriff Grady
Judd, Polk County has discouraged and all but
eliminated anything remotely resembling non-
state sanctioned gambling.
But, come on, let's not pretend to be so prissy
when it comes to gambling. The state-sponsored
lottery is everywhere.
Or sports betting? How's your bracket?
Casinos? Interstate billboards entice the

gaming-minded. Large groups of retirees take bus
trips to Tampa or Immokalee. A gambling ship
leaves regularly from Fort Myers Beach. "Fun and
games on the Big M.Casino," as-the website says.
No, this isn't really about gambling. It's about
scandal and the desire for elected officials some
of whom accepted campaign funds from gambling
companies to distance themselves from the
appearance of sleaze.
Early this month, federal and state law enforce-
ment officers attested 57 operators of Internet
cafes affiliated with a group called Allied Veterans
of the World. Under the guise of helping a charity,
Allied Veterans supposedly took in profits of $300
million since 2007 and paid out only 2 percent.
It soon came out that Carroll had worked as a
consultant for the company while she was in the
Legislature. She quickly stepped down from her
post as lieutenant governor.


In the aftermath, ban bills began sliding through
the Legislature. Recently, the House passed a bill
that would effectively put all the Internet cafes out
of business. The legislation would make any type of
slot machine illegal. It would prohibit gift cards -
a common form of payoff at the strip-mall casinos.
It would prevent patrons from accumulating points
from games over time and would limit cash prizes
to 75 cents per game.
Bingo.
We have to admit we're not huge fans of Internet
cafes. They are a bit unseemly. But many people
enjoy them. For some, it's a good afternoons
entertainment, like going to the track or playing a
game of bingo at the clubhouse. It seems harmless
enough.
The Allied Veterans of the World allegedly en-
gaged in fraud. That's against the law. We really
don't see why all Internet cafes should suffer from
a broader association with a fraudulent business.
Regulate them a little more. Tax them. Whatever.
But don't shut them all down just to scrub your
hands of the taint of scandal.


Emotions not fact,


drive gun-law debate


When I was in the service, the camp
theater used to show stirring, heroic
World War II or Korean War movies
once a week. We scoffed at "John Wayne
night" but went anyway mostly to
chuckle at little errors in the films.
One had a scene with a guy firing
a Browning Automatic Rifle for about
a full minute (which would be a neat
trick) and then holding it on his shoul-
der by the barrel, like a baseball bat, as
he pondered the nature .of life, death
and the universe. We wondered if they
peeled the actor's melted skin off the
white-hot barrel of the BAR, after that
scene.
More than 40 years after leaving the
Marine Corps, I don't know much about
guns. But I've watched a lot of politi-
cians campaigning and a lot of legisla-
tors debating tragic topics. I know when
they're letting their hopes overrule
their heads on heart-tugging topics like
drunk driving or child abuse.
There isn't much of a gun debate in
Tallahassee compared to what we see in
Congress and some other states. There
are a couple of bills to require universal
background checks for all gun sales, but
they have no chance of passage, even
Though a Quinnipiac University Poll last
week said nine out of 10 Floridians like
the idea.
Legislators will also talk about the
2005 "Stand Your Ground" law, allow-
ing use of deadly force in self-defense.
Nothing much is expected to change.
Many citizens reacting to the mass
murders in Newtown, Conn., Aurora,
Co., and Tucson or yearning to curb


Bill Cotterell


the daily toll of domestic violence or
gang shootings all over the country
- have gone to their legislators with
excellent intentions. But emotion
overwhelms the logic of their ideas.
President Obama, Sen. Diane
Feinstein, D-Calif., and other
Democrats say the grieving parents
of Newtown "deserve a vote" on an
assault-weapons ban. But Majority
Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., blocked it
from the Senate floor last week for a
shrewd political reason he doesn't
want five or six Democratic senators in
"red" states defeated next year, if the
Senate passes a gun bill and sends it to
certain death in the House.
The trouble with banning assault
weapons, but not regular rifles, is that
it contradicts Isaac Newton. He's the
physicist who came up with all that
stuff about bodies in motion obeying
natural laws of force and momentum.
A gun is a machine that accelerates a
small ounce of lead from zero to about
2,500 feet per second. Once the projec-
tile leaves the muzzle, it doesn't matter

Here's what we really want

from our government


The Legislature is in session, bus-
fly carrying out the wishes of Special
Interests Inc., and Gov. Rick Scott is
moving toward the middle. But that's a
mere canard, as any left-winger con-
spiracy theorist knows.
Scott just wants to dupe the middle-
of-the-road folks into re-electing
him next year, at which point he will
promptly revert to Oscar the Grouch
mode, dispossessing orphans and wid-
ows, paving the Everglades and banning
Medicaid to make Florida even more
"business friendly."
If the Legislature and Scott really
wanted to help the working men and
women, its members would get busy
passing a bunch of laws that would
improve our quality of life.

we can find. The transformations
happen in the classroom and we are
determined to give this community the
best teaching staff around."
Dunson also described how private
funding has paid for six academic
coaches, local college students who
concentrate on math instruction and
a massive tutoring program along with
one who is the students' researcher for
college.
She detailed another major improve-
ment in falling rates of discipline issues.
"In many cases, the rate has fallen
more than 65 to 75 percent," Dunson
added."Fights are a rarity at the high
school. I attribute much of the change
to students who want to create a better
community; a community that is
focused on their future and not focused
on filing another discipline referral. We
still have issues, but we have a staff and
student body who believe they deserve
a better environment in which to learn.
A group of 60 students who serve on the
Principal's Council helped design the

Online registration and numerous
meetings to accommodate a family's
busy schedule will make it extremely
easy for parents to register their child
for LWHS.
"We are offering several opportunities
for 8th graders to apply to LWHS and
register for classes," Shick explained
about the enrollment sessions at LWHS
for students from 7:30-8:30 a.m. on

if the thing that launched it is shaped like a pistol,

silhouette may feel good but does not make us safer.
Similarly, Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York is
retooling a ban on ammunition magazines holding
more than seven bullets. But nobody makes a seven-
round magazine. Or maybe somebody does. They're
not real sure but, never mind, they just really wanted
to pass a law.

Pass a law requiring disclosure by the Tea Party, Tax

this will provide convenience for fami-

A Saturday workshop will be provided

media center.
"Parents and students will be able to

in gun control on the part of the news media.
There probably aren't many NRA members at the
New York Times, for instance.
After Cuomo's news conference, the paper's
Albany bureau last week reported that "seven-round
magazines are not widely manufactured." But the

require that stores post it prominently fo.r all the
idiots to see when they line up to buy Florida Lottery
tickets. The message: "Caution, you have less chance
of winning the big prize than Dennis Rodman has of
winning a spot in the Diplomats Hall of Fame."
If lawmakers really were on our side, they would
pass legislation to make convenience stores and
coffee shops for those of us now forced to wait in
line behind dipsticks who deliberate at length over
whether they want some beef jerky along with their
lattes. All stores should have to post signs above each
cashier line: "Decided" or "Undecided."
Here's a law that citizens would unanimously enact
in a constitutional amendment: "No clerk shall make
a customer wait to make a purchase while said clerk
answers the telephone."

There's a little four-part harmony
coming to the Ridge later this
month.
On Sunday, April 14, at 3 p.m.,
the Lake Wales Music Club will
be sponsoring an "Old-Fashioned
Sunday Afternoon Spring Concert"
at Lake Wales High School.
This will be a "family fun"
event, featuring the Sentimental

Winter Haven based barbershop
chorus, and the Tag Team Quartet.
Tickets are $4 individually, and a
family ticket is $7. The family ticket
is for adults and children, including
five people.
Root beer floats will be avail-
able for $1 at the intermission and
following the concert. For informa-
tion or tickets, call 863-676-8986 or
863-635-4431.


same story quoted Cuomo, "There is no such thing
as a seven-bullet magazine. That doesn't exist. So you
really have no practical option."
So which is it? "Not widely manufactured," or
"doesn't exist?" Like those Hollywood filmmakers
who knew little of guns, like reporters who aren't
clear on the concept of "no such thing," some well-
meaning legislators don't let facts get in the way of
feeling virtuous.

OBITUARIES


Minnie Lewis Shelley, 93,;went home to
be with the Lord Saturday, March 30,2013,
due to natural causes.
She was born Aug. 14,1919. Minnie was
a lifelong resident of Florida and moved
to Babson Park as a young child. She was
among the first of those to attend Babson
Park Elementary. Minnie was married to
Malley Shelley and they celebrated many
happy years of marriage before his passing.
She was a loving wife, mother, grandmoth-
er, great-grandmother and sister. She never
missed an opportunity to hug her family
and tell them how special they were to her.
In addition to fulfilling her family's needs,
Minnie worked for many years at the Lake
Wales Citrus Growers Association.
Minnie didn't learn to drive until the
passing of her husband. She knew she must
take this step to be independent, and so she
began a new stage of her life. She was the
friendly, smiling greeter atWal-Mart until
her upper 80s.
Grace Healthcare became her home in
the last years of her life. Although she was
sad to leave her house, she soon began


to see Grace as her home. She loved the
workers there and made many fond friends.
She took pride in reaching out to those that
she felt needed attention and love at the
home. She felt it was her calling to minister
to these people and even said that she led
11 people to the Lord while there.
In addition to her husband, Minnie
was preceded in death by her son, James
(Johnny) Earl Shelley.
She is survived by her daughters, Carolyn
(Scott) Smith of Lake Wales, Fla., and
Sharon (Mitch) Bunner of North Carolina;
four grandchildren, Scott (Jill) Smith of
Lake Wales, Andy (Kim) Shelley of Boston,
Mass., Alexa Shelley of Boone, N.C., and JP
(Beverly) Shelley of Memphis, Tenn.; and
Seven great-grandchildren.
Graveside service is 2 p.m. Friday April 5,
2013, at the LakeWales Cemetery with the
Rev. Walter Nelson officiating.
Condolences may be sent to the family
and the webcast of the service can be viewed

"sooo nice! And being out on the field in
that uniform was everything I could ever
hope for."
Next came a hearty buffet breakfast,
then onto the field so each camper could
participate in five different position drills
(outfield, infield, catching, pitching and
hitting), to determine their skill level.
Following lunch there was a skills
evaluation of the campers who were then
divided into six teams of 11 players. Each
team would engage in daily skills training
sessions with the Braves' veteran players
and coaches.
Edwards was on team #1 with coaches
Marvin Freeman and Javy Lopez. It was at
this time that Freeman notified Edwards
that he was the Atlanta Braves "newest
number one draft pick".
'An almost surreal experience", Edwards
proudly recalls.
In addition to the skills training, each
of the six teams would play six games. On
the last day of camp, Sunday, each team


would play one inning against the A team
made up of the all-star cast members aka
the Legends. The campers teams would be
known simply as the All Stars.
"Everything possible was done to make
the Major League experience as realistic
as possible," said Edwards explaining that
"the clubhouse service which cleaned their
uniforms daily in addition to all the other
clubhouse services was big league from
start to finish. We were treated just like real
Major League players. The training staff
and coaches did their best to take care of
the campers just as if they were million
dollar players that the team couldn't do
without."
Edwards recalled a first-day injury
"where his calf cramped up and he couldn't
push off the pitching mound,"
They took him out of that game, telling
him "this is your first day, you don't need to
aggravate that injury You paid too much to
miss out on the rest of this experience.".
The training staff iced his leg and gave
him some medicine and he was OK within
an hour. As a precaution, however, they
still kept him out of the rest of that first
game.
"It's important that you have your own
insurance in case of a serious injury such.
as a broken bone, because while the train-
ing staff can handle minor injuries such as
pulled muscles and sprains, major injuries
must be treated in'the hospital and are the
camper's responsibility," he noted.
Edwards lauded the all-star cast noting
just how helpful and approachable they
were, "just the nicest bunch of people you
could ever meet."
He also recalled how each coach took


four campers for a golf outing where they
were able to socialize and" pick their
brains not only about baseball, they would
answer questions about most anything."
Other highlights included things like
Kangaroo Court, where campers and even
members of the all-star cast are called
before a mock court, tried and fined for
certain violations that might be considered
disrespecting a major league uniform,
(such as missing a belt loop or one of the
campers strong odor of Bengay). It was all
in good fun.
Because Justice was one of his boyhood
baseball heroes, his talk was especially
meaningful to Edwards.
"He seemed sincere in everything he
said. Just as much as the campers enjoyed
meeting him, he enjoyed meeting and
talking to them," Edwards added.
The Major League Experience didn't
end when the camp closed. All campers
are invited to a camp reunion party at 2013
Braves home game in Atlanta and each
camper is allowed one guest.

Florida Poly proposes degree programs


STAFF, WIRE REPORT

Following months of research and
discussions with academic consul-
tants, Florida Polytechnic University's
Strategic Planning Committee has
recommended five degree programs
in the College of Innovation and
Technology and the College of
Engineering.
"After an extremely thorough market
investigation, these programs were
identified as meeting the real-time
response to employer needs, and are
in-line with the recommendations of
the Board of Governor's Commission
on Higher Education Access &
Attainment," said Ghazi Darkazalli,
vice president of Academic Affairs for
Florida Poly. "The introduction of these
programs and academic goals is the
culmination of extensive efforts that
have taken place over the last several
months."
This happened despite of problems
with the new school that is going on
in Tallahassee where the state Senate
last week took out millions in funds for
the school and a contentious Board of
Governors meeting last Thursday.
Question over the whether the state
can afford a 12th state university is
coming into question.
Polytech Chief Operating Officer Ava
Parker and board of governors member
Mori Hosseini exchanged words in the
meeting. She said the statute of the
new school has been thrown her way
and you have to follow it.
Hosseini said, "No, I didn't say that.
I said it's not for us to decide if we like

Lakeland. The school anticipates opening its doors in hte summer of 2014.


it or not. It's not our job to decide on
what the legislature and the governor
did ... we're over that."
The bottom line was whether the
campus was to open at the scheduled
time and whether it will attract the kind
of students it is seeking.
Other state schools have programs
already being used and have been
successful. But Polytech continues to
develop whatever it can, despite the
fact that $25 million has been striped
from the Senate's proposed budget.
Within each of the proposed degree
programs it came out with last week,
there are opportunities for students
to specialize in certain fields of
concentration.


"We want to provide students with
the education that they need to meet
the demands of global economic trends
and Florida's evolving industry land-
scape," said Darkazalli. "The objective
is to have 75 percent of students placed
in full-time jobs by the time they
graduate."
In addition to the strong focus on
science, technology, engineering and
math courses, the proposed degrees
incorporate mandatory leadership,
finance and management training into
all programs.
"Our goal is to produce students who
not only are capable of meeting the
demands of STEM-related employers,
but who are also capable of creating


that demand themselves," said Board
Chairman Rob Gidel. "We want our
graduates to have the tools to manage
the business of STEM."
Florida Poly's first students are
expected to begin courses by August
2014, and the student recruitment
strategy is already under way.
The Committee proposed agree-
ments with STEM charter and
magnet schools to serve as feeders
to Florida Poly. The University will
also collaborate with state colleges to
implement feeder programs for stu-
dents looking to transition to Florida
Poly after obtaining an associate's
degree.
SOther strategies include employ-
ing a summer studies program for
youth modeled after Duke's Talent
Identification Program and recruiting
international students from South
America and Asia.
At last Thursday's Board of
Governors meeting member Elizabeth
Webster said she doesn't think Polytech
can compete.
"Historically has that happened?
Because coming from my perspective,
I'd feel a little uneasy about taking that
chance," she said.
School officials said it can and it
hopes to get students from community
colleges.
Will Weatherford, the Florida House
Speaker, still is in favor of the school's
creation.
"We're not trying to re-invent the
wheel... you can just bring in a partner
to show you how it works," it was
reported that he said Thursday.


Child credit freeze back by subcommittee, Putnam


Consumer reporting companies
would be required to allow parents and
guardians to pay $10 to open and freeze
credit records for children under a
measure (HB 493) unanimously backed
Thursday by the House Insurance and
Banking Committee.
The freeze, already in place in
Maryland, is
intended to

information.
Agriculture
Commissioner
Adam Putnam
applauded the
subcommittee
support for the
bill that gives his
agency power to
Adam Putnam first impose a $500
fine on companies
that fail to follow the law, if approved.
"Over the past eight years, identity
theft involving minors has increased
three-fold," Putnam said in a release.
"This bill will help prevent child identity
theft by allowing parents and guardians
to block thieves from using their child's
personal information."
The bill has one more stop, the House
Regulatory Affairs Committee, before
reaching the floor.
The Senate companion (SB 566)
is scheduled to go before the Senate
Commerce and Tourism Committee on
April 1.

County Road 640 to
temporarily close
CSX Transportation has temporarily
closed County Road 640 about one mile


west of the intersection with County
Road 555, near the Green Bay fertilizer
plant southwest of Bartow, for repairs
to a damaged rail crossing. Work should
take most of the day to complete and
will require a detour of all thru-traffic
along County Road 640 between County
Road 555 and State Road 37.
The traveling public is advised to
avoid area. Motorists are urged to exer-
cise caution, be alert to detour signs and
add extra time to trips through area.
For information, call Bill Skelton
with Polk County Transportation at
863-535-2200.

Firefighters will be
in the intersections
Polk County Fire Rescue will take
to the streets the first three Fridays in
April to raise money for the Muscular
Dystrophy Association through the Fill
the Boot drive.
For more than half a century,
the International Association of
Firefighters members have stood by
the MDA, to make a difference in the
lives of those affected by neuromuscu-
lar diseases.
The money raised in Polk County
stays in the county to help fund
program services, including free clinic
visits; assistance with the purchase and
repairs of wheelchairs, leg braces and
communication devices; physical,
occupational, and respiratory therapy
consultations; support groups and
summer camp for children. The
money raised also helps fund several
ongoing research projects in search
of better treatments and a cure.
The dates for the drives are April 5, 12
and 19 at these intersections:

Senate recommends
$200,000 for Dozier Research
The Florida Senate will set aside
$200,000 to continue research at the
site of the Dozier School for Boys,
Sen. Kelli Stargel announced this week.
Stargel, R-Lakeland, said the money
would go to the University of South
Florida, which has helped spearhead
the investigation into the school in
Marianna, which was closed in 2011.
USF has used ground-penetrating
radar and other methods to search for
the remains of former residents of the
reform school, which opened in 1900
and was the alleged site of brutality


for years.
"This funding is crucial to helping
USF analyze the cemetery at the former
school," Stargel said in a news release
announcing the recommended funding.
"This the right thing to do, so that we
may provide some form of closure for
the family members who tragically lost
loved ones at this site."

New restrictions allow for
two days of watering a week
As part of the Southwest Florida
Water Management District's extended
watering restrictions, Polk County
Utilities water customers and those in
unincorporated Polk County are allowed
lawn and landscape watering from
groundwater sources two days a week.
These restrictions apply to everyone re-
ceiving water from Polk County Utilities,
private wells, surface water sources
or reclaimed water, and are effective
through July 31.
Homes and businesses with even
addresses are allowed to water on
Thursday and Sundays. Odd addresses
are allowed to water on Wednesdays
and Saturdays. All common areas and
properties where no address can be
determined are allowed to water on
Tuesday and Fridays.
Watering is allowed between midnight
and 10 a.m. or between 4 p.m. and mid-
night. Hand watering or micro-irrigation
of landscaping (not including actual
lawn areas) is allowed at all times.
Further information about water-
ing restrictions is available online
at watermatters.org. Residents with
questions or concerns should contact
the Polk County Utilities Water Resource
Enforcement Office at 863-298-4211.

School


Board to discuss dress code violations


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
"Pants on the ground, pants on
the ground, looking' like a fool with
your pants on the ground."
The rap song called "Pants on the
Ground" which brought national
fame to "General" Larry Platt when
he performed it on "American Idol,"
apparently struck a cord nationwide
for its derision of wearing pants at
mid-buttock. A video of Platt's on
the TV show had 9,010,394 views on
YouTube as of Friday morning.
In spite of new Florida legislation
and increased local penalties for
those choosing to defy that part of


the dress code, Polk County School
Board member Kay Fields said at the
March 19 board work session that
she is once again "seeing too many
baggy pants" among students.
This sparked a discussion among
board members and Interim
Superintendent John Stewart about
the need to possibly tighten up the
dress code. The plan, requested by
board member Hunt Berryman, is to
have a special work session soon to
discuss the issue.
High school students are the fo-
cus, because elementary and middle
schools students wear uniforms,
complete with belts. Conceivably,
the high school students could end


THE CURRENT CODE OF CONDUCT ADDRESSES BAGGY PANTS
IN THIS FASHION:
"Pants with belt loops shall be worn with a belt that is properly fastened. Pants shall be worn so that
the waistband is worn at the waist and not below the waist.
Section 1 paragraph(d) of subsection (2) of section s.1006.07, FloridaStatutes requires each district
school board to adopt a dress code policy that prohibits a student, while on the grounds of a public
school during the regular school day, from wearing clothing that exposes underwear or body parts in an
indecent or vulgar manner or disrupts the orderly learning environment."
a. For a first offense, a student shall be given a verbal warning and the school principal shall call the
student's parent or guardian.
b. For a second offense, the student is ineligible to participate in any extracurricular activity for a
period of time not to exceed 5 days and the school principal shall meet with the student's parent or
guardian.
c. For a third or subsequent offense, a student shall receive an in-school suspension pursuant to s.
1003.01(5) for a period not to exceed 3 days, the student is ineligible to participate in any extracurricular
activity for a period not to exceed 30 days, and the school principal shall call the student's parent or
guardian and send the parent or guardian a written letter regarding the student's in-school suspension
and ineligibility to participate in extracurricular activities.":'


up with uniforms, which is what
Lake Wales High School opted
to do two years ago. There was
some parent resistance at the
time. Lake Wales principal Donna
Dunson, who took over as principal
in 2011, said that in uniformed
schools she had led, such as Bok
Academy Middle School, there was
more of a sense of pride and unity,
and the uniforms ended fashion
competition.
Polk board member Lori
Cunningham, who lives in Lake
Wales, said, "I've seen first-hand the
difference a dress code can make in
student attitude."
Board chairperson Hazel Sellers
said, "I believe we can have a
strict dress code without going to
uniforms."
Berryman said he thinks they
should review both options at the
work session.
Sellers and Stewart both said they
think school administrators are
trying to stay on top of the problem,
but there are often more pressing
matters to deal with.

Shaquille Snell, who attends Lake Wales High
School, shows the uniform students wear

the dress code changes that may involve the
high schools switching to uniforms. Lake Wales
High is in a charter school district and not part
of the public school system.

a billion dollars each year, a new study
has found.
Idaho-based Economic Modeling
Specialists, Intl., (EMSI), conducted
the study as part of a broader examina-
tion of the impact of the entire Florida
College System.
EMSI found that in 2011-12, the
College had a total economic impact of
$481.8 million.
Of the College's total economic
impact, $443 million is a direct result of
increased earnings students and alumni
receive because of their Polk State
College education.
The remainder of the College's
economic impact is comprised of
operational expenditures.
The College's total impact equates


to approximately
3.3 percent of Polk
County's economy.
"We are certainly
very proud of this
data," said Polk
State President
Eileen Holden.
"Polk State truly
impacts'the bottom
line' of its commu-
nity, adding over $480 million in annual
income to the local economy, through
the earnings of our graduates. That's
a huge impact, and we expect that to
grow in the coming decades."
The release of the study elicited
positive reaction from business leaders
across the county.
"This study quantifies what we've al-
ways known that Polk State's impact


reaches far beyond
its campuses and
classrooms," said
S Steve Scruggs,
president of the
Lakeland Economic
Development

to create a pipeline
of more highly
trained workers, which is invaluable in
attracting new businesses to the area. At
the same time, having a quality, afford-
able higher-education institution right
here at home goes a long way in retain-
ing talent in Polk County. Polk State is
an invaluable resource in the economic
development of our county."
Winter Haven Economic
Development Council Director David


Petr added:
"Polk State College is one of the best
tools I have in my economic develop-
ment toolbox. When speaking with
business leaders interested in moving
to our area, they demand a highly. ,
skilled workforce to fuel their business.
The dedicated faculty and staff at Polk
State have created the ideal setting for
success, offering exceptionally qualified
job candidates to our community every
semester."
The EMSI study also examined the
College's return on investment, both for
students and taxpayers, finding:
For students, the return on their
educational investment at Polk State is
17.3 percent. Put in another perspec-
tive, the average Polk State student's

Tops on the Test

Polk State EMT Students Now Lead State on Exam


Polk State's Emergency Medical
Services Program is now No. 1 in the
state in terms of students passing the
emergency medical technician licens-
ing exam.
More than 90 percent of students
passed the National Registry of
Emergency Medical Technicians
(NREMT) exam between Jan. 1, 2012
and March 1, 2013, according to the
Florida Department of Health.
Statewide, the average pass rate was
65 percent.
Polk State EMS (Emergency Medical
Services) Director Don Guillette said
the program has for years hovered near
the top spot, but this is the first time


since the state adopted the NREMT
eight years ago that the College has
ranked No. 1.
Guillette attributed the performance
to a number of factors.
For one, about a year and a half ago,
the program began using an electronic
classroom performance system
basically a set of handheld clickers
- to gauge students' understanding of
material. Instructors pose questions to
their classes and, based on the answers
students provide using their clickers,
know if they need to cover anything in
more detail.

Polk State Theatre Presents 'All Shook Up'


A landmark season for Polk State Theatre comes to
its rollicking conclusion in April, with the staging of
'All Shook Up," a romantic musical told through Elvis
Presley hits.
It's a performance that will be fun and lighthearted,
but for the actors, also intensely complicated and
demanding.
No matter, says Polk State Theatre Professor Paul
Carbonell, his students are up to the challenge.
They have been all year.
"Musicals are a monumental effort. There are so
many elements involved the dialogue, the sets, the.
singing and dancing. In musicals, 'bigger is better' is
the mantra; everything is spectacle driven," Carbonell
said.
"For the students, doing a musical at the end of the
year is the culmination of everything they've learned


all season. This is everything they've been working
toward."

A Season to Remember
Polk State Theatre has enjoyed bustling growth
in recent years, including a spike in the number of
students applying for scholarships to study with the
program; in 2011-12, 51 students applied, nearly
quadruple the number in the year prior.
The new talent the program is attracting, combined
with the hiring of new faculty members, positioned
Polk State Theatre to launch its most ambitious
season ever in fall 2012.
The performances ran the emotional gamut, from
Neil Simon's classic comedy, "Barefoot in the Park,"

Student
Spotlight


To have seen her present at last fall's Polk
State Honors Program Academic Showcase,
where she seemed so comfortable on the
stage, discussing biological sex determination,
it would have been easy to assume Robin
Savage knows exactly what she wants to do in
life and that those plans must involve a lab
coat and microscope.
Come to find out, Savage is still deciding on
what she'll do next. Scientific research has its
appeal. But, then again, so does helping deaf
scientists to communicate.
Whatever she decides to do, she'll do it
with newfound confidence which, as she
explains, has much to do with her decision to
study at Polk State College.
"I don't think people realize how much there
is to reap at Polk State," she said.
Savage, a resident of Auburndale, gradu-
ated as valedictorian from Auburndale High
School in 2011, and certainly could have gone
straight to a major university.
Instead, she chose Polk State, swayed by its
small class sizes and proximity to her home.
With the dual enrollment and Advanced
Placement credits she'd earned in high school,
Savage thought Polk State would be a brief
stop along her educational path. She'd finish
her Associate in Arts in just a year, and then
she'd be on her way.
Then in fall 2011, Savage took a Biological
Issues class with Professor Colleen Caldecutt.
Suddenly her one-year stint at Polk State
didn't seem long enough.
"It wasn't like any science class I'd ever
taken before," Savage said. "It was different
mainly because of Professor Caldecutt's en-
thusiasm. She was very interested in what she
was teaching. I'd never gotten excited about
science before."
Savage decided to extend her studies at Polk
State and complete all the prerequisites she'll


need to study Bioscience at the university
level. Under Caldecutt's supervision, she also
began an independent study to learn more
about the development of biological sex, a
topic that had intrigued her so much in class
that she couldn't wait to learn more on her
own.
In particular, Savage is interested in
research that shows human gender is not
as simple as "male" or "female," but that it -
actually ranges along a continuum and is
influenced by factors including genetics and
environment.
Caldecutt said Savage may have been the
student during the independent study, but she
certainly wasn't the only one learning.
"Robin is a voracious reader and pulls a
'Good Will Hunting' about once a month,
bringing a thoroughly digested pile of gradu-
ate-level textbooks or medical journals to my
office. We share reading material back and
forth, so the learning is certainly on both sides
of the desk. Her independent study project
has become a custom-built, graduate-level
course for me as well," Caldecutt said.
Savage is also taking American Sign
Language this semester at Polk State. Through
her studies, she's learned that there are no
universal signs for many scientific terms a
situation that is frustrating for scientists and
one she's interested in possibly helping to
resolve one day.
"I don't know what I want to do yet, but I
know that I want to help people," she said.
As she contemplates life after Polk State -
which will come after she graduates in 2014
- Savage says that no matter what she does
next, she will do it with a newfound sense of
confidence that has developed through her
leadership of the Honors Program Student
Council at Polk State Lakeland.
A self-described "introvert," Savage ran for
president of the Student Council and was
elected in fall 2011.
The experience of leading the chapter has
changed her in ways that can't be undone, she
said.
"I am introverted, that's just the way I am.
I've learned, though, that people have differ-
ent leadership styles. Some people are very
enthusiastic and others, like me, are observers
but we will speak our minds when we need
to," she said.


IMPACT
FROM PAGE 1

lifetime earnings will increase by $6.60
for every dollar they invested in their
education at the College, in the form
of tuition, fees and foregone earnings
during their studies. Thanks to their in-
creased earnings, students will recoup
the cost of their Polk State education
within about nine years.
The rate of return taxpayers see
on their investment in the College
is 10 percent, which far exceeds the
3-percent rate generally expected for
long-term government investments,
as well as the 7-percent average return
on stocks and bonds. As such, the state
actually makes money off its invest-
ments in Polk State College.
A more detailed look at wages in Polk


County found that those who have an
associate's degree earn $36,500 annu-
ally by the midpoint of their careers;
this is 35 percent higher than those
who have only a high school diploma.
Because they earn higher salaries,
Polk State's graduates help to expand
Florida's tax base by $54 million each
year, the study found.
Not only do Polk State alumni earn
more money, they also have greater
success in being hired after they gradu-
ate from programs designed to lead
straight to the workforce (such as
Business Administration, Public Safety
and Nursing). Polk State was ranked
No. 1 for student employment in 2010
and 2011, outperforming all other
Florida College System institutions
according to the Florida Department of
Education.
Polk State attributes these results
to the fact that it works closely with


industry partners, from large corpora-
tions to hospitals to small businesses,
in developing and refining its curricu-
lum. In doing so, the College ensures
that its students acquire the skills and
knowledge Polk County's employers
demand.
"The data from the FLDOE speaks
to Polk State's integration with the
local labor market," said Peter Usinger,
director of institutional research, effec-
tiveness, and planning for the College.
"Our programs produce people who are
immediately employable."
Polk State delivers this workforce-
based, in-demand education at the
county's most affordable price point.
Polk State's affordability contributes to
approximately 90 percent of students
graduating without any student-loan
debt.
Thanks to its blend of affordability
and sought-after degree programming,


Polk State has seen remarkable growth
in recent years. Between the 2006-07
and 2011-12 academic years, the
College experienced a 63 percent jump
in its full-time equivalent enrollment.
Also, during the same time period, the
College more than doubled its degree
output.
The EMSI study showed that the
need for the quality, affordable educa-
tion Polk State provides will continue
to grow in the future. By 2022, the
study estimates there will be about
97,000 available jobs in the county
that will require at least an associate's
degree.
Polk State's study was part of a
broader look at the impact of the entire
Florida College System (FCS). The
results of that study showed that the
28 FCS institutions pump an additional
$26.6 billion per year into the state's
economy.

Polk's Smith Tapped for



State Softball Hall of Fame


Polk State's Laurel Smith will be inducted into the FCSAA's
Softball Hall of Fame this month.

Former Polk State College softball coach Laurel
Smith has been called a lot of things: a pioneer, a
visionary, a hard worker, a mentor. Now she can also
be called a Hall of Famer.
Smith's election to the FCSAA's Softball Hall of Fame
was announced in late February, and she will be for-
mally inducted during the state softball tournament
in Pensacola in April. She is the only inductee into the
Hall of Fame this year.
Coaches and others within the FCSAA voted to
include Smith in the Hall of Fame.
"It's an honor," said Smith, now professor and
department coordinator for physical education and
wellness at the College.
"These are my fellow coaches and colleagues. I
worked with all of them, some when I was coaching.
That's special."
The Hall of Fame induction recognizes Smith's long
career and her dedication to the sport of softball.
Smith grew up in Long Island, N.Y. While in high
school, she got her first organized experiences with
the sport, playing for Bellport Senior High School.
After high school, she went on to play outfield and
third base for SUNY Cortland.
The end of her career as a college athlete also
marked the beginning of her administrative and
coaching roles in the sport, starting as a graduate
assistant at Emporia State University in Kansas.
Through the years, she ascended to new levels of
responsibility within the sport, and with each posi-
tion she had a front-row view of sweeping changes
in the world of athletics from the inception of Title 9,
the 1972 legislation that made sports equitable for


women, to the emergence of the NAIA and NCAA,
which replaced the AIAW as the governing agencies,"
for college sports.
By 1980, she was coaching softball, basketball
and volleyball, and teaching physical education at
Salem State College in West Virginia, now Salem
International University. While there, she was
nominated to be treasurer for the first NAIA softball
committee.
In that role, she learned the administrative side of
sports from Mary Nutter of Pittsburg State (Kansas),
a softball coach and clinician who served as the first
president of the NAIA softball committee.
"She taught me about planning and how to get
things passed through committees," Smith said. "She
also taught me how to run national tournaments and
about their structure and format."
The lessons learned under Nutter served Smith well
when she later became the NAIA's softball president,
taking on duties such as seeding teams, selecting All
Tournament teams, tournament preparation, making
brackets and running coaches meetings.
Smith's next coaching stint was at St. Andrews
Presbyterian College in North Carolina, before finally
ending up at Polk State in 1991.
Her accomplishments at Polk are many and
varied. She started the College's softball program
in 1995 and quickly won two Suncoast Conference
Championships. She's also built a respected reputa-
tion for her quiet, self-effacing style of leadership.
"She can do everything," said Polk State Athletic
Director Bing Tyus. "She's a good listener. She's
decisive and her ethics are beyond question. She's a
good person."
Added current Polk State softball head coach Jeff
Ellis:
"She's the best and (the Hall of Fame honor) is well
deserved."
In addition to her work at Polk, Smith has also
taken on numerous volunteer positions with the
NJCAA and FCSAA to advance and promote softball
across the state and country. She is currently NJCAA
Region 8 assistant women's director, NJCAA vice
chair, NJCAA softball section director, a member of
the NJCAA National Softball All Tournament Selection
Committee, and a member of the NJCAA All America
selection committee.
With the FCSAA, she serves as softball chair,
softball tournament committee member and assis-
tant women's commissioner. She was also named an


FCCAA Hall of Famer in 2009.
"She's a one-man show who gets stuff done for no
other reason than she wants to," said Chris AheP,
head softball coach at Santa Fe College.

"And the questions the instructors
are asking in class are questions that
the students are likely to encounter on
their exams, so we're preparing them
to succeed all along the way," Guillette
said.
Additionally, the program has
begun incorporating scenario-based
questions into its Emergency Medical
Responder training. EMR is the lowest
rung onr the EMS ladder; students must
first complete EMR training before they
can advance to the EMT and para-
medic levels.
Scenario-based questions are those
in which students are given a hypo-
thetical situation filled with all sorts of
factors and they must determine how
best to treat a patient.
The majority of questions students
encounter on the NREMT are scenario-
based, Guillette said.
"Students are good at memorizing


definitions, but in the end, the EMT
exam and ultimately the paramedic
exam is all about scenario-based
questions. We're starting the students
with scenario-based questions from
their first days in the program to pre-
pare them for later success," he said.
Guillette also attributed the students'
success on the NREMT to the quality
of the program's instructors, both those
in the classroom and who supervise
students training in the field.
The program's paramedic students
are also outperforming most of the
state on their licensing exam.
A separate Florida Department of
Health report showed that between
June 1, 2012 and March 1, 2013,
100 percent of Polk State students
passed Florida's paramedic certification
exam. Polk State tied two other pro-
grams Chipola College and Sarasota
County Technical Institute for the
No. 1 ranking. Statewide, the average
pass rate was 67 percent.
Polk State students also had the
second-highest average score on the
exam, tied with Indian River State and


just behind Sarasota County Technical.
Since 2000, Guillette said, 95 percent
of the program's paramedic students
have passed the exam on their first
attempt.
Polk State EMS in part because
of its students' performance on cer-
tification exams enjoys a regional
reputation for excellence. The pro-
gram regularly draws students from
other counties, and area employers say
Polk State students stand out in the
workforce.
"EMS is very much a specialty and
it takes a very special individual with
extremely confident skill levels in order
to face the challenges we face on a
day-to-day basis," said Jim Wilson, EMS
chief with Plant City Fire Rescue in a
2012 interview with Polk State.
"The difference between a Polk State
grad and grads of other programs is
that Polk State grads are better pre-
pared to face those challenges without
me having to do a lot of on-the-job
training."
EMS has three tiers, beginning with
EMRs. EMRs provide initial, hands-on


emergency care. EMTs are the second
tier and provide basic life support,
such as CPR, splinting and immobiliza-
tion. At the top tier are paramedics,
who provide advanced life support,
such as intravenous therapy, intuba-
tion, medication administration and
defibrillation.
Polk State EMS offers training for
those seeking to work at any level of
EMS, and an associate's degree for
paramedics interested in career
advancement.
The program also provides Pediatric
Advanced Life Support and Advanced
Cardiac Life Support training for Polk
County Fire Rescue.
In addition to EMS, Polk State Public
Safety offers associate's and bachelor's
degrees in Criminal Justice, and an as-
sociate's degree in Fire Science. In addi-
tion to EMS, Polk State Health Sciences
programs include Cardiovascular
Technology, Diagnostic Medical
Sonography, Nursing, Occupational
Therapy Assistant, Physical Therapist
Assistant, Radiography and Respiratory
Care.

made their way to the car, where they found an
unconscious man in the passenger seat.
McBrayer, currently a firefighter and emergency
medical technician (EMT) for the City of Auburndale,
called for a stretcher and a ventilation bag. Then he
and a police officer pulled the man out of the car
onto the stretcher.
Barnes felt for a pulse and, finding none, quickly


began CPR. She and McBrayer along with two
other Polk State students, Monica Layne and Allison
Skinner gave the man CPR for 37 minutes, when he
regained a pulse and began breathing on his own.
The quick thinking and actions Barnes and
McBrayer demonstrated caught the eye of hospital
employees.
"The staff acknowledged the rapid and appropriate
actions of the Polk State College paramedic students
and felt that this could be what led to the resuscita-
tion of the patient. I feel that this exemplifies the
quality education that the students of the Polk State
College EMS Program receive," wrote Brian Petterson,


a nurse at the hospital, in an email to Don Guillette,
Polk State EMS director.
The patient had suffered a massive heart attack,
Barnes and McBrayer said, and passed away a few
hours later.
Regardless, Guillette said, his students did exactly
what they've been trained to do and he couldn't be
more proud.
"Their quick actions gave him the opportunity
to have his life saved. As a paramedic, you have no
control over what happens later on in the hospital,
but they acted quickly to give the doctors and nurses
the chance to do everything they could," he said.

to the Pulitzer Prize-winning 'Anna in
the Tropics," an intimate tale of Cuban
cigar-makers whose transition to
America is fraught with infidelity and
other struggles.
The season also included William
Shakespeare's "Richard III," the largest
and most complicated performance
in Polk State Theatre history, involving
more than 100 cast and crew members
and local theatre professionals.
It's certainly been a season to re-
member, Carbonell said, even more so
because of the growth he's seen in his
student-actors as they met the chal-
lenges of each performance.
Take for instance student Austin
Thomas, 20, who acted in "Richard
III" and 'Anna in the Tropics," and
plays the male lead in 'All Shook Up."
Thomas said he's gained added con-
fidence through his experiences with
Polk State Theatre this season. He is
applying to study in the competitive
Cap 21 summer program in NewYork
City and even plans.on auditioning for
a Broadway play all thanks in part to
what he's learned at the College.
"Polk State and my professors here
have honed my skills. I've become a
better actor, especially with the physi-
cal side of acting, and a better singer,"
said Thomas, a resident of Auburndale.
"Polk State has honed my skills expo-
nentially since high school."
Mikayla Duncan, 19, a resident of
Lakeland, acted in "Richard III" and
plays the female lead in 'All Shook Up."
She's been performing on stage since
she was in the seventh grade, but said
she's learned new methods just in the
span of the few months she's been


involved with Polk State Theatre.
"At the College, they expect you
to know your stuff, to know the play
beyond just your part," she said. "I've
learned to know the lines of other
people in the play and that I have to
really get into the emotions of the char-
acter. I can't just memorize the lines."

All Shook Up'
Polk State Theatre's upcoming perfor-
mance of Joe DiPietro's 'All Shook Up"
will test all the newly acquired skills of
the student-actors.
The musical, which reviews have
described as having Shakespearian
overtones, uses Elvis Presley hits such
as "Jailhouse Rock" and "Love Me
Tender" to tell the story of 10 romanti-
cally entangled characters. 'All Shook
Up" made its Broadway debut in 2005.
Director Mark Hartfield said "All Shook
Up" is a particularly exhausting show
because of the intensity of its musical
numbers.
"There are 30 different songs, so
we're constantly going from one
musical number to another with just a
few lines in between. That's a lot. Most
musicals don't have that many songs,"
he said. "The challenge becomes how
to present so many songs with the
same 25 people. It's a lot of memorizing
and learning dances."
Adding to the challenges is that not
all of the performers have had previous
singing or dancing experience but at
an open-access institution such as Polk
State, auditions are open to anyone
who wants the opportunity.
"There are several levels of complex-
ity to this show," Hartfield said. "We
started auditioning in January so we
could start right away in February
with learning the music, then we
move on to adding the staging and the
choreography."


All the previous shows of the season
have been excellent preparation for
the season-ending musical, Hartfield
said. All the hard work, all the lessons
learned, all the progress made will
culminate in a truly fun show.
"The music of All Shook Up' is popu-
lar and it has a good story. It's high
energy entertainment," he said.
Polk State Theatre will perform 'All
Shook Up" on April 10-14 and 18-21.
All shows are at 7:30 p.m. at Polk State
Winter Haven's Fine Arts Theatre,
except for Sunday matinees, which are
at 2:30 p.m.
April 10 is a free preview. All shows
are free for Polk State students and
employees with College-issued IDs.
High school students are also free with
school ID. Tickets for the general public
are $5. The box office opens 30 minutes

Tenants have suggestions for new owner


Eagle


Ridge now owned by Tabani Group


By BILL ROGERS
BROGERS@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
More stores, a better variety and
higher quality are things that some of
the tenants at Eagle Ridge Mall say the
new owner needs to do to improve it.
Tabani Group earlier this month
purchased the property at the corner
of U.S. 27 and Chalet Suzanne Road in
Lake Wales.
Tabani is a real estate investment firm
with assets including shopping centers,
hotels, land, apartments, condos and
malls across the United States.
A press release stated Tabani has a
strong reputation for purchasing under
performing properties and bringing
them to their full potential by creat-
ing value through capital improve-
ments, increasing occupancy rates,
professional marketing and strategic
management.
The company has 26 shopping
centers, according to Claire Anderson,
marketing manager for the company.
Courtney Redner, assistant manager
at Body Central, said the mall has been
geared more toward the older genera-
tion and needs to focus on younger
people.
"We need to gear more toward the
teens and 20s," Redner said.
Hot Topic and and Hollister are two
stores she mentioned that will appeal to
younger shoppers. She said she is asked
about Frederick's of Hollywood.
"We need more stores," she said.
"There are not enough stores to make
them shop."
Tony Pantojas, senior assistant man-
ager at fye, said a book store and more
name stores such as Gap and Old Navy
would be good additions to the mall.
"I'm pretty excited to see what's going
to happen," Pantojas said.
Pantojas, who has worked at the mall
for six years on and off, said he has seen
stores come and go there. He is hopeful
that the mall can get turned around.
National tenants at Eagle Ridge,
including Dillards, Hibbett Sports and
Sunglass Hut, deferred to their corpo-
rate offices for comment.
Jeff Gray, vice president of real estate
for Hibbett Sports, said the company
has stores in Tabani malls in Natchez,
Miss., and Danville, Ill. Gray added
that Tabani did improve the Natchez
property.
"New eyes and new money can only
be a positive," Gray said.
Hibbett has had a store at Eagle Ridge
since 1997, and Gray described it as a
"good store."
"We hope they can bring in new
tenants," he said.

Bike riders make pit stop in Lake Wales


Chocolate malt hits the spot as


visitors


find out about Frostbite


By CASSIE JACOBY
CJACOBY @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Bike Florida's Orange Blossom Express
got their orange on during pit stops at
various points of the Ridge, including
Frostproof, as part of a week-long tour.
After arriving in Lakeland on Saturday
March 23, the group of 575 biked to Bartow,
Polk City, Haines City and Clermont where
they spent two days before making a "tent
city" bike camp at LakeWales High.
Highlights of their two days in the area
included a tour of Kissimmee State Park
and Frostfroofwith a visit to Frostbite Ice
Cream.
"I have a thing for chocolate malts and
it was wonderful," said Becky Afonso, ride
director. "Scenic Highway 17 is one of my
favorite rides and when you bike our aver-
age distance of 65 miles a day you can have
anything youwant"
The cyclists moved every other day with
the total distances on each tour varying
from 175 to 475 miles. A century option of
100 miles is available on each layover day
The riders are usually asleep in their tents
by 10 p.m. "We wear spandex, not leather,"
Alonso stated about the well-behaved
group, many of whom bond and make
lifelong friendships.
"It's so neat to see the country, get to
know the small towns and meet others
who enjoy the outdoors, camping and
staying in shape by bicycling," said 64-year-
old Bettie Spawal, a resident of Cincinnati,


Bike Florida cyclists Bettie Spawal and Ellie
Bergman got a taste of Lake Wales along with
575 bikers on the "Orange Blossom Express"
camping out at Lake Wales High School.

Ohio. She met 73-year-old Ellie Bergman,
a resident of Grand Rapids, Mich., seven
years ago on a bike tour of Nova Scotia
and they've been cycling companions ever
since.
With bikers spending an average of $35
each day the economic impact on each
community is tremendous.
"We hire local caterers to provide break-
fast and dinner included in their meal plan,
but they're on their own to eat and shop
the rest of the day," Alonso added.
The tour concluded with an after-hours
private sunset concert at Bok Tower
Gardens on Thursday, March 28 before
mounting the bike saddle and gearing
up to hit the road at 7:30 a.m. on Friday
March 29.
"With clear skies, a chill in the air and
the bells playing, it was truly an affair to
remember," explained Alonriso. "We enjoyed
citrus and chocolate dessert delights
created by local chefs while sipping adult
beverages, some of the carbonated sort
that are served with orange slices."
This is the first time the tour came to
Polk County, but as Bike Florida approach-
es its 20th anniversary next year, Alonso
said it won't be their last visit.
"Everyone said that this is one of
the most beautiful rides they've eVer

the rollers (rolling hills) and had never seen
so many citrus groves. We all want to say


a big thank you to all the cities, chambers

making this the ride of our dreams."

of the economy. However, every year
as veterinary visits decline there is an
increase in consumer spending on pet
products, such as collars and toys. My
perception is more so that owners do
not realize the importance of the an-
nual visit, as well as cats are just plain
tough to pack up and bring to the vet.
It is not the fault of the feline families
that they do not understand the impor-
tance of wellness exams for their cats. It
is our duty as veterinarians to keep you
informed. Cats by nature hide signs of
illness, and thus often do not present
to veterinarians until they are very sick.
Annual examination focuses on preven-
tative medicine. Our cats can live longer,


happier, healthier lives when we can
prevent disease, or identify disease at an
early stage. That is the real value of an
exam on an otherwise healthy pet.
A thorough physical exam assesses
all structures and functions of the body,
such as examining the teeth, listening
to the heart and feeling the kidneys.
Mild changes in these physical parame-
ters may indicate disease, which needs
to be addressed. Another important
component of feline preventative care
is vaccination. It is important to discuss
your cat's lifestyle with your veterinar-
ian so that an appropriate vaccination
schedule can be implemented.
While many cats are not out prowling
in the yard, very few Florida cats are
strictly indoors. Most cats have access
to a screened porch, where they enjoy
sunning themselves and catching bugs
and lizards.


The other big challenge to getting
your cat to the vet is catching them and
stuffing them in the carrier. There are
a few things that can help make this
process easier.
Cats like to climb into small spaces,
but they don't like things that are new,
or smell funny. Make the carrier a
familiar thing; don't just bring it out
once a year for the visit. You can keep
the carrier out as a bed or place treats
in the carrier at home, so they become
accustomed to climbing in.
Another useful product is Feliway,
which is a synthetic feline facial
pheromone. We all know how cats
love to rub their faces on everything


to spread their scent, and Feliway can
help to provide that natural soothing
scent. The product even comes in a
wet wipe that you can wipe down the
inside of the carrier 30 minutes prior
to travel.
Bringing your cat to the vet doesn't
have to be a daunting task. And work-
ing with some of these techniques
and your veterinarian, you can make
it less stressful for both you and your
cat. Stop by Paws and Perches Animal
Hospital the week of April 1 and we
will give you a free sample of Feliway
wipes, so you can get your cat to your
veterinarian and be an advocate for
their healthy longevity.

Bulldogs championship rally falls just short


The Frostproof Bulldogs
didn't come home with a
championship trophy from last
weeks Lake Region Thunder
Spring Classic, but the baseball
team no doubt did return with
a shot of confidence and pride
after falling to the much larger
school in the tournament finals.
In fact, Lake Region needed
10 innings to put away the
scrappy Bulldogs, who tied the
game with three runs in the
seventh inning to force extra
frames.
CodyWilson cracked a triple
to plate two runs, one he drove
in an one he scored himself on
an error, to tie the game at 4-4.
Frostproof had battled back
after falling behind 3-0 in the
third inning with the benefit
of just one hit to the outfield.


There were two infield singles
and an error that led to the
three runs.
Wilson started the comeback
in the fourth inning with a
single, scoring on a single by
Frankie Bartley.
Lake Region won it in the
bottom of the 10th on a ground
out. Frostproof had 13 hits, but
didn't bunch them together at
the right times.
The Bulldogs earned their
spot in the finals by beating
Santa Fe, 10-1, and All Saints
Academy, 8-4, in opening round
play
Frostproof and Santa Fe
were in a tight battle until the
Bulldogs broke it open with
nine runs in the final three
frames, including five in the
seventh inning; CaseyThomas


was the winning pitcher, and
also had two RBI. Marcus
Ramos scored twice and had
two hits, while Marcus Bobb
had an RBI. CodyWilson had a
double.
Clay Bamrnes picked up the
win against All Saints. Thomas
had two triples, while Wilson
and Juan Flores both had
doubles. All Saints scored two in
the bottom of the first to jump
on top, but Frostproof scored
in four straight innings starting
with the top of the second,
including three runs in both
the third and fourth innings. All
Saints manages just three hits,
and Bamrnes fanned seven while
walking six Frostproof had
11 hits in the win.
The Bulldogs will host
Mulberry Friday night.

mately 5'9" tall and weighing approxi-
mately 140 pounds. He has dark brown

State getting federal ag funds


The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services will
receive $6 million in federal funding
through the federal Farm Bill to help
eradicate pests and control diseases
that affect agriculture, it said.
"This funding will help Florida
protect its agriculture from pest and
disease invaders that are threatening
entire industries," said Commissioner of
Agriculture Adam H. Putnam. "We must
continue to fight to save our citrus, our
honey bees and our environment for
future generations."
The spending plan for the pest and
disease control section of the Farm Bill
was released last week by the USDA's
Animal and Plant Health Inspection
Service (APHIS). The purpose of the


APHIS funding is to prevent the intro-
duction and spread of plant pests and
diseases that threaten the U.S. agricul-
ture and environment.
This funding will strengthen pest
surveillance, detection and identifica-
tion and help mitigate these threats,
officials indicated.
The Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services is receiving $5.4 mil-
lion of the statewide total, with the rest
going to research programs. The state
programs that will be funded include:
Giant African Land Snail mitigation,
Florida detector dog teams, research
and development for citrus health,
traveler's "Don't Pack a Pest" outreach
program, protection of avocado produc-
tion and a honey bee national survey.

At vitamin and herb shop, customer care is foremost


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Customers who visit "I Believe in
Miracles" vitamin and herb shop in
Bartow can rest assured they and their
health needs will get undivided attention.,
The recently opened shop, at 195 S.
Central Ave., Bartow, is owned by Angela
and David Bennett.
Angela is a longtime exercise and
yoga instructor as well as a minister, and '
her husband David was in the grocery
business for 20 years. He also worked
for several years with a homeopathic
physician.
The shop features a large selection of
organic and health foods, as well as herbs,
vitamins and supplements. If you don't
find what you need, they will special-order
it for you.
An unusual feature of the shop, and one
the owners consider vital, is a computer
program that they say diagnoses with high
accuracy individual health or nutrition
deficiencies. The Zyto Compass, which
the Bennetts say operates on the same
principal as a polygraph, reads up to 400
bio-markers as you rest your hand on
a cradle attached to the computer. The
program is said to identify deficiencies
based on the results. The analysis, which
they said costs about $125 at many health
and medical centers, is free at their shop.
The results of customer's screens are
emailed to them.
According to the Bennetts, they can
often recommend dietary, supplemen-
tal or lifestyle changes based on the
reports. Angela said she lost 32 pounds
based on her analysis indicating

A recent visitor to the shop was pre-
scribed a supplement and a number of
dietary changes. She was referred to the
Bennetts by a co-worker at Winter Haven
Hospital. Another customer came in and
picked up a specially-ordered adrenal
supplement. A third customer, Polk
County firefighter Patricia Jones, came
in for advice based on the recommenda-
tion of a friend who is a body-builder.
"Information is what people need, and
they can get it here," Jones said.
"Pmr-biotics are best-sellers," Angela
said. Pro-biotics keep good micro-flora

Lakeland OKs first phases
of Master Facility Plan
Lakeland Regional announced its Board
of Directors approved the first phases of
a multi-year Master Facility Plan, which
includes building a state-of-the-art medi-
cal tower.
This expansion is part of Lakeland
Regional's ongoing commitment to
deliver the highest quality healthcare for
the region, while meeting the emerging
healthcare demands of area residents.
"Through this expansion, Lakeland
Regional will have more space for the latest
technology, a new women's and children's
center, larger operating rooms, and a


greater number of private patient rooms,
just to name a few," said Elaine Thompson,
president and CEO of Lakeland Regional
Health Systems. "By investing in this state-
of-the-art facility, we are able to ensure
the highest quality of care for our patients
by providing our physician partners and
healthcare teams the opportunity to deliver
the best possible outcomes."
The new medical tower will be located
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 connectors.
Lakeland Regional plans to build a new
clinical academic building on the south

State schools may get only Florida OJ


Department of Agriculture to get bids from distributors, processors soon


Captain Citrus is another way the Florida Citrus Commission is trying to
reach students in the state.


ByJEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
It will be a couple of weeks
until the Florida Department of
Agriculture starts looking for a
company to help it supply Florida
orange juice to the state's schools.
Shannon Shepp, the deputy
commissioner for the Department
of Agriculture told Florida Citrus
commissioners Wednesday the
department will send out bids in
the next two weeks.
"We will bid this by region," she
said. "There are so many players
in this game."
Currently Florida schools do
get orange juice for their students
but, Shepp said, it is some kind of
blend of imported and domestic
juice to most school districts. This
program would get to the schools
100 percent Florida orange juice,
which would not only help the
children because the Department
of Agriculture believes it is a better
product, but it would be good for
the industry, too.
"It's an age-old debate on the
quality of orange juice," she said
following her presentation to the
board Wednesday. 'And, if you
don't like what you're drinking
today because of the taste that
could create something that could
last a lifetime."
And there are choices the
students can take for something
to drink and right now, she said,
orange juice is low on the list.


"In many cases this is not their
first choice and we want this to be
their first choice," she said.
The program is paid for through
the Florida Agriculture Trust Fund
and through some general fund
money from the state that the
state Legislature has approved.
The money the districts spend
on food does not come from the
district's budget.
In Polk County, this may not
be an issue because it already
purchases Florida orange juice.
Susan Ehrhart, the school
nutrition director said Thursday
her department has bought only
Florida orange juice for many
years and it does bidding on
orange juice year round. Florida
orange juice always gets the nod.
"It comes right from Lake
Wales," Ehrhart said.
Shepp said the bidding process,
though it will go to every citrus
processor and food processor
in the state, should be a short
process but with so many
distributors she's not sure how
much time it will take. And, of
course, the price matters, she said.
Without knowing whether or not
having 100 percent Florida orange
juice sold to schools as opposed
to what they get now is cheaper is
still a question.
"Currently the average price
for the school district is about 15
cents a glass," said Robin Safley,
the director of the Division of
Food, Nutrition and Wellness for


the Department of Agriculture,
but she added of course the price
varies from county to county. In
Polk County, the price is 12.8 cents
per four-ounce pouch it serves
students, Ehrhart said.
She said the price could be
cheaper here because it is a local
product, but she added, served
in the pouch could make it a bit
cheaper than having served in a
carton.
"The other thing is our milk
bid is also with M&B Dairy and
because they're delivering milk
and juice that could be why (the
price is lower)."
But the lower price paid in
Polk County is no indication
of where the bids will come in
and both Shepp and Safley have
no idea what the price maybe.
Safley said the Department of
Agriculture isn't going to force
school districts to buy Florida
orange juice if they object to the
price, but she feels like that is
jumping ahead as the bidding
hasn't even started yet.
But, she also believes school
districts buying Florida orange
juice will help the industry in
Florida which is among the top
industries in the state.
"There is a goal that would
allow (farmers) to extend some
of the seasons. Sometimes places
stop buying and there's still food
on the vine. If schools still buy
them (that's a constant con-
sumer)," she said.

What types of loans are available and what are the advantages of each?


Really all the same
type of loans are still
available. Conventional
financing is a loan from
a bank that you usually
choose when you have
at least 20% of your own
funds, you usually get


a great fixed interest
rate and you don't have
to pay pmi (purchase
mortgage insurance). A
local favorite since our
whole area qualifies for
this, a USDA loan. This
is a federal back loan for
HUD a rural develop-
ment program for those
who qualify. First the
property has to be in
an approved area then
the buyer is subject to
approval based on their
credit worthiness and
household income levels.
There is pmi due each
month, however, espe-
cially for first time home-
buyers that don't have
their 20% down payment
and or closing costs, this
extra monthly fee added
to the monthly principal
and interest payment is
still affordable. There
are FHA home loans
available with 3% down
or more. There are down
payment assistance
programs available too.
The best bet is to seek
the advice of your lender
and or a mortgage broker
that handles a variety of
loans.

PRAYERS ANSWERED
The prayer Saint Anthony,
"look around, something lost
and can't be found" was
always answered. Recently,
however I became desperate
and had to apeal to the Our
Father and his son Jesus. I
even asked a friend to pray
that I would find the lost tax
file. More time elapsed, but
finally the lost file almost fell
in my lap. Thank you Father,
Thank you Jesus, thank you St
Anthony and Tom. A grateful
Christian.
