VIEWPOINTr



Protecting your right to speak


One of the better measures to come out of the
2013 session of the Florida Legislature is Senate Bill
50, popularly known as the Right To Speak Bill.
We hope that local governments in Polk County
will be quick to implement it, and that citizens will
take advantage of its provisions.
We have often commended local governments in
our communities for their responsiveness to their
constituents.
The chances that Joe and Minnie Lunchbucket
can propose a bill that will make its way through
Congress, or even the state Legislature, and become
law are limited.
But when it comes to city commissions, county
commissions, and school boards what we have
called "friends and neighbors government" the
chance to have an impact on government improves
dramatically.
We have been critical when these agencies seek to
limit or discourage public input.
As a minimum, there customarily is a place on the
agenda of meetings of elected bodies for members
of the public to be heard on any subject.
While some agencies make it inconvenient to
exercise this right by putting that item at the end of
the agenda, many encourage exercise of that right by
placing the opportunity at the start of the meeting.
Putting public comment at the start of a meeting
makes it possible for citizens to speak up, then go


Our Viewpoint

about their day's activities, rather than waiting for
hours of business to be conducted before they can
make a 5-minute statement of their concerns.
Equally important, it ensures that constituents will
be heard before, not after, action is taken.
Government junkies, a term that includes most
journalists, understand the differences between
work sessions and regular meetings, between
ordinances and resolutions, and between first and
second readings.
The average citizen doesn't understand the dis-
tinction, and there is no reason why he should.
The First Amendment, best known for its guaran-
tees of freedom of speech, religion, and the press,
also guarantees the right of the people "to petition
the Government for a redress of grievances." Note
the absence of qualifiers ,about work sessions,
multiple reading of ordinances, or other procedural
issues.
Note further that this is a right of citizens, not a
privilege granted by government.
The typical citizen exercises the right to "petition
the Government" only once or twice in a lifetime,
when he feels strongly about an issue, and he should
not have to be an expert in government processes


- or even a government junkie to do so.
Florida's new "Right To Speak Bill" (signed into law
last week by the governor) requires that "a member
of the public be given a reasonable opportunity to
be heard by a board or commission before it takes
official action on a proposition."
To us, that means, at a minimum, that the public
should be heard at the start, not the end, of a meet-
ing, and should be permitted to speak on an item of
business at any time, whether or not a formal public
hearing is required.
The typical bureaucratic response to allowing
greater access to the governmental process will be to
present the worst case scenario: "But if we do that,
such-and-such might happen."
The concern should be: "If we don't listen to our
constituents at every opportunity, government will
be less responsive."
Years ago, when Florida's Government in the
Sunshine Law was passed, one government attorney
in Polk County met in secret with his elected body to
give members a list of ways to get around the law.
Another explained the law to his board with these
words: "If you think you're cheating, you probably
are."
Which position better represents the public inter-
est? We encourage local governments in Polk County
to seek ways to implement not restrict the
intent of the Right To Speak Bill.


From the mouths of babes


Like many observers, I usually read
reports about political goings-on with
a sort of weary cynicism. Every once
in a while, however, politicians do
something so wrong, substantively and
morally, that cynicism just won't cut
it; it's time to get really angry instead.
So it is with the ugly, destructive war
against food stamps.
The food stamp program which
these days actually uses debit
cards and is officially, known as the
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance
Program tries to provide modest but
crucial aid to families in need. And the
evidence is crystal clear, both that the
overwhelming majority of food stamp
recipients really need the help and
that the program is highly successful
at reducing "food insecurity," in which
families go hungry at least some of the
time.
Food stamps have played an espe-
cially useful indeed, almost heroic
- role in recent years. In fact, they
have done triple duty.
First, as millions of workers lost
their jobs through no fault of their
own, many families turned to food
stamps to help them get by and
while food aid is no substitute for a
good job, it did significantly mitigate
their misery. Food stamps were espe-
cially helpful to children who would
otherwise be living in extreme poverty,
defined as an income less than half the
official poverty line.
But there's more. Why is our econo-
my depressed? Because many players
in the economy slashed spending at
the same time, while relatively few
players were willing to spend more.


Paul Krugman

m1~te8


And because the economy is not
like an individual household your
spending is my income, my spending is
your income the result was a general
fall in incomes and plunge in employ-
ment. We desperately needed (and
still need) public policies to promote
higher spending on a temporary basis
- and the expansion of food stamps,
which helps families living on the edge
and lets them spend more on other
necessities, is just such a policy.
Indeed, estimates from the consult-
ing firm Moody's Analytics suggest that
each dollar spent on food stamps in
a depressed economy raises GDP by
about $1.70 which means, by the
way, that much of the money laid out
to help families in need actually comes
right back to the government in the
form of higher revenue.
Wait, we're not done yet. Food
stamps greatly reduce food insecurity
among low-income children, which, in
turn, greatly enhances their chances
of doing well in school and growing up
to be successful, productive adults. So
food stamps are in a very real sense an
investment in the nation's future an
investment that in the long run almost
surely reduces the budget deficit,


because tomorrow's adults will also be
tomorrow's taxpayers.
So what do Republicans want to do
with this paragon of programs? First,
shrink it; then, effectively kill it.
The shrinking part comes from the
latest farm bill released by the House
Agriculture Committee (for histori-
cal reasons, the food stamp program
is administered by the Agriculture
Department). That bill would push
about 2 million people off the pro-
gram. You should bear in mind, by the
way, that one effect of the sequester
has been to pose a serious threat to
a different but related program that
provides nutritional aid to millions of


pregnant mothers, infants and chil-
dren. Ensuring that the next generation
grows up nutritionally deprived now
that's what I call forward thinking.
And why must food stamps be
cut? We can't afford it, say politicians
like Rep. Stephen Fincher, R-Tenn.,
who backed his position with biblical
quotations and who also, it turns
out, has personally received millions in
farm subsidies over the years.
These cuts are, however, just the be-
ginning of the assault on food stamps.
Remember, Rep. Paul Ryan's budget
is still the official GOP position on
fiscal policy, and that budget calls for

Stronger hurricane season predicted


NOAA predicts up to 20 named


By ALIDA SCHAT
ASCHAT@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM


Hurricane season officially began
Saturday and Polk County residents
remember the 2004 hurricanes as an
example of the damage that could
be done. Prior to 2004 a hurricane
had not directly hit Polk County
since 1960.
"Since then, the population has
increased greatly to about half
a million. A lot of those people
had never experienced a hur-
ricane before, so that was quite
an eye opener," said Pete McNally,
Emergency Management Director in
Polk County.
It's been a few years since Florida
has been impacted by a hurricane
hitting land. However, this year the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration predicts there is a
70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20
named storms of which seven to 11
will become hurricanes and three to
six will become major hurricanes of
Category 3 or larger. That, it says, is
higher than the average season.
"This year oceanic conditions
are expected to produce more and
stronger hurricanes," said Jerry Bell,
a hurricane forecaster.
In 2004, Polk County did not just
get hit once though. Between August
and October, the county was devas-
tated by three hurricanes: Charley,
Frances and Jeanne. Mike Henry,
owner of Parakeet Mobile Home
Park in Lake Wales, is still repairing
the damage that was done to his
home in 2004.
"I've been putting it off," Henry
admitted.
Though all of Polk County was af-
fected by the 2004 hurricanes, Lake
Wales got hit the hardest. Hurricane
Charley came as a surprise for Polk
County, as it was originally predict-
ed to hit Tampa. Around 2 p.m. the
storm changed directions and came
in through Charlotte Harbor. At the
time, Henry had campers coming in


from Tampa to escape the predicted
path of the hurricane.
"I sent them back to Tampa
around two in the afternoon," said
Henry.
The 55-pIus mobile home park
was destroyed by the series of
hurricanes in 2004. The wind was
so strong that Henry recalls the
damage that was caused by a brick
cinderblock flying a 150-foot dis-
tance and hitting his window.
"We lost to my calculations,
30,000 pounds of aluminum. I have
receipts for over 100 trips to the
dump and most of that was just
insulation," said Henry.
Parakeet Park lost six homes
completely and suffered damage to
the rest of the homes. Porches came
out and trees and picnic tables went
flying.
As soon as Henry heard the storm
was coming toward Lake Wales he
gathered all of his residents into
the clubhouse a sturdy one-story
brick building. But as the storm
worsened Henry realized it would
be safer to send them to the high
school shelter. However, one couple
decided to wait out the storm in the
clubhouse. During the storm the
clubhouse filled with two inches of
water, the windows broke, and most
of the roof shingles came off.
"They were just huddled in (the
clubhouse) scared to death," said
Henry of the couple.
After the storm subsided, the
campers staying in the shelter were
forced to stay overnight because
officials said the streets were still
too dangerous.
"Oddly enough the only place in
town that had no running water was
the shelter. So they're stuck up there
with no food, no water, no plumb-
ing. It was a mess. They were very
upset," said Henry.
Parakeet Park did not receive
emergency help until Monday, three
days after Charley struck.
"It was like living on a desert
island Friday night, Saturday night

and Sunday night. We saw nobody,"
said Henry.
Perhaps the worst of the hur-
ricanes was the aftermath. More
than 55,000 structures in Polk
County were impacted by the storm.
McNally said 2,699 of those struc-
tures were completely destroyed.
Additionally, parts of Polk County
were without power for up to two
weeks.
"We were lucky that we got our
power back in five days, but it was
miserable because it was so hot and
muggy you couldn't sleep. The bugs
were horrible so you had to sleep in
your house with the windows shut
and no breeze. Your screen porch
that you normally would have slept
on was gone so you couldn't sleep
there," said Henry.
Further complications arose dur-
ing the cleanup stage when looting
became a problem.
"With all this aluminum every-
where, there were trucks and trail-
ers coming into this park left and
right. I was constantly jumping off
my tractor to stop somebody," said
Henry.
Tonya Parker, a resident of Fort
Meade, was without power for nine
days.
"My mom lived probably 12 blocks
north of my dad and it took us an
hour and a half to get from my
mom's to my dad's," said Parker of


remember 2004

the hectic roads after the storms. "It
looked like a war zone. Trees were
down, power lines were down," said
Parker.
Charley caused the most destruc-
tion, arriving in Polk County as a
Category 3 hurricane. Frances and
Jeane, both Category 1 storms,
followed shortly after Charley and
increased the damage already
caused by Charley.
"We wound up having to replace
signs three times. You try to get
your community back to normal
by replacing signs but little do you
know, another (storm) is coming,"
said McNally.
In 2004, McNally was in charge of
the Emergency Operations Center.
His response and recovery team had
hurricane emergency plans laid out
but never had to actually implement
them before then.
"We hadn't seen a storm like
this before, so people were really
overwhelmed," said McNally of the
traumatic event.
In total, Polk County suffered
14 fatalities from the three storms.
Many of these fatalities were a
result of the response and recovery
phases. The aftermath of the storms
left 1.8 million cubic yards of debris
enough to fill a football field
stacked more than 70 stories tall.
The cost of this cleanup was more
than $33 million.
"It was quite an eye opener when
people saw how vulnerable we
were," said McNally, who hopes that
more residents will learn from the
2004 hurricanes and get prepared
for an emergency.
Randy Morris, a resident of
Sebring is more prepared now for
a hurricane after his neighborhood
was struck by the storms in 2004.
"I was out of power for two weeks
during Charley and two weeks dur-
ing Jeanne," said Morris. His family
has since bought a generator and
stocked up on extra water. "If we
know something is coming we get
extra canned food," said Morris.

on fiscal policy, and that budget calls
for converting food stamps into a block
grant program with sharply reduced
spending. If this proposal had been in


effect when the Great Recession struck,
the food stamp program could not have
expanded the way it did, which would
have meant vastly more hardship,
including a lot of outright hunger, for
millions of Americans and for children
in particular.
Look, I understand the supposed
rationale: We're becoming a nation of


takers, and doing stuff like feeding poor
children and giving them adequate
health care is just creating a culture
of dependency and that culture of
dependency, not runaway bankers,
somehow caused our economic crisis.
But I wonder whether even
Republicans really believe that story
- or at least are confident enough in


their diagnosis to justify policies that
more or less literally take food from
the mouths of hungry children. As I
said, there are times when cynicism
just doesn't cut it; this is a time to .get
really, really angry.

Expo prepares hundreds for hurricane season


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT

More than 350 Polk County residents turned out
on Saturday for the annual Polk County Hurricane
Expo held in Haines City where experts shared
preparedness tips for this year's hurricane season.
The annual event was held at the Lake Eva
Banquet Hall in Haines City and featured speak-
ers who offered various perspectives on the hur-
ricane season and some 38 vendors also offering
survival tips and materials.
The Hurricane Expo is an educational event for
the entire family, according to officials. In addi-
tion to" guest speakers other activities included
safety demonstrations, a K.I.D. Korner (Kids in
Disaster) and emergency vehicle displays. Vendors
of safety products, personal disaster preparedness
and home retrofit products were also on hand to
assist in showing how residents can prepare for
the storm season.
Sponsors of the annual event included AAA
Insurance, Allstate Insurance, the Ledger Media
Group, Lowe's, Paul Davis Restoration of Polk
County, ServiceMaster Restore of Polk County,
Simply HealthCare Plans and WelldyneRx.
Among the speakers were Leigh Spann and
Brian McClure, both meteorologists with Tampa
television stations, representatives of the
Environmental Protection Agency who discussed
sinkholes, Jessica Whitehouse of the Florida SPCA
who talked about preparing your pets for the
storm season and how to evacuate with them, and
Polk emergency services personnel who explained
their roles should a disaster strike the county.
The annual event, under the mantle of Polk
Emergency Manager Pete McNally, is to "stress
preparedness," McNally explained.
"We want people to know what to do, when to
do it and how to make sure they are ready should
a storm hit the county," he said.
McNally said the Emergency Operations
Center in Winter Haven is ready to respond

should the need arise.
"We coordinate with numerous agencies
throughout the year so if we have to activate the
center, we are ready," he explained.
All governing bodies, disaster relief agencies
and law enforcement agencies are represented at
the EOC and continually coordinate throughout
the year so "everyone can react immediately," he
added.
One display that drew a crowd was a unique de-
vice depicting how a tornado develops which was
designed and built by Emergency Management
specialist Bill Abernathy.
"The kids love this," he said, showing how he

simulated the rotating winds in a tornado using
an exhaust fan and dry ice. "It gives everyone,
not just the kids, an idea of how cyclonic winds
work."
Also available at the expo were hurricane track-
ing maps and shelter information.
"We encourage anyone who couldn't come to-
day to go to our website and get a map. You never
know whether you'll need one or not," McNally
said.
The website is www.polkfire.net/emergency-
management. Information may also be obtained

Valedictorian: Knowledge gaines through time, experience


ByJOSEGONZALEZ
FROSTPROOF 2013 VALEDICTORIAN

(Editor's Note: This is the speech
delivered by Frostproof Class of 2013
Valedictorian Jose Gonzalez during
graduation Friday night at Faris Brannen
Stadium in Frostproof)
Good evening, friends and families,
teachers and staff, board members, and
last but not least fellow graduates.
We are gathered here today to com-
memorate the first step toward our
future. I am honored to have been
chosen to speak before such a diverse
and talentedgraduating class; a class
composed of athletes, musicians, artists,
and scholars.
When I sat down to write this speech, I
did not know really where to begin. I had
been given the task of giving inspiration
and words of advice to a graduating class
that is about to let loose into a vast world,
a daunting task to say the least.
I would think that there are plenty of
people more qualified at giving advice
and inspiration then a seventeen-year-
old who has not faced many tribulations
other than having to pass a couple of
tests and exams; maybe when I am much
Solder, and have a better understanding of
the world we are about to enter, I would
be better adapt at giving out guidance
and words of encouragement.
You see knowledge is something you
gain from time and experience; it is a
game of trial and error. Instead of relying
on my own experiences to draw inspira-
tion from, which are not very many to say
the least, I give you the words a great and
innovative man once said; 'Around here,
however, we don't look backwards for very
long. We keep moving forward, opening
new doors and doing new things, because
we're curious... and curiosity keeps lead-
ing us down new paths."


Those words were uttered by a man
who managed to build an empire from
the ground up, Walt Disney His words are
still true today, to "keep moving forward"
and not dwell on the past for long. Don't
stress over the little things in the coming
years. We can all remember the down-
pour that we faced on our Homecoming
game. The court was forced to walk
through the rain, but we did not let that
ruin our day and instead embraced it.
We are leaving the safety of a constant
seven period day, five days a week
routine, to enter a world that holds many
uncertainties for us; I will try not to sugar
coat it. We will all eventually struggle
through tough times in our lives, but we
must not panic if we fail every once in a
while. We are not perfect or meant to save
the world. If that were true, we would
have been all been born in colorful tights
and a cape.
Take those failures and make the best
out of them in order to find the answer, a
very unique man with a knack for rhyme
once stated that, "Sometime the ques-
tions are complicated and the answers
are simple."
A man who never lost his creativity or
child-like imagination gave the world
this little thought to process. His name
was Dr. Seuss, and it goes to show us
the power of simple answers in such a
complex world.
The achievements that we have
accomplished these past four years
would not have been possible without
those people in our lives that pushed
us to grow; for they were the ones that
nourished qualities within us such as
leadership, curiosity, determination, and
independence. These qualities will help
us years from now when we don't exactly
remember what that capital of Nicaragua
is or the role that a mitochondria plays
in a cell.

Albert Einstein once said, "Education
is what remains after one has forgotten
what one has learned in school." Take
the lessons we have learned from these
important people and apply them to the
life you have planned out for yourself.
Without these mentors, coaches, teach-
ers, counselors, family members, and
parents none of us would be ready to


exit those white and red walls that we
have come to know as Frostproof High
School.
Our success is your success; The Class
of 2013 thanks you.
Thank you everyone for coming to
celebrate this day with us, and once
again, Congratulations to the Class of
2013.

Salutatorian: Time to reveal extra in extraordinary


By TIARA GAINES
FROSTPROOF 2013 SALUTATORIAN

(Editor's Note: This is the speech
delivered by Frostproof Class of 2013
Salutatorian Tiara Gaines during
graduation Friday night at Faris
Brannen Stadium.)
Welcome fellow graduates, families,
faculty and guests to the Frostproof
Middle Senior High class of 2013
Graduation Ceremony.
Today is the day I send a formal
thank you to Mrs. Demarco for allowing
me to practice getting comfortable at
speech presenting on the sidelines with
the Cheerleaders. I wasn't really forget-
ting the cheers every Friday night, I was
practicing for tonight.
I am thankful for the many top of the
line teachers I have been blessed with
throughout the years. The teachers
like Mrs. Demarco, who anyone could
depend to be just around the corner,
working indefatigably yet happily ready
to shed a tear, encourage, and even
share a piece of homemade pie with
you.
And teachers like Mr. Corlew who
somehow seemed to sneak knowledge
into your mind while you laughed the
entire period. All of my teachers have
challenged me, strengthened me and
molded me into the person I am today.
I am forever grateful.
I would also like to thank our families
and friends, your unending love, sac-
rifices, and support. We couldn't have
made it this far without you.
My mom would often stress the
importance of education to me as I
grew up. Often times she would preach
"If that door closes," to find a window.
Mom I think I finally found an open
door. She had a way of encouraging me


to pursue my dreams, no matter what
obstacles seemed to stand in the way.
I will never forget the many memo-
ries I've been blessed with here in
Frostproof. My favorites are playing
soccer under Coach Wrye and King, and
also the seven years of family bonding
on the track field with Coach Brewner
and Brantley.
My coaches taught me that although
we can't win them all; we sure can
come back next year and show them
who's boss! I'll miss them as much as
I'll miss singing my lungs out, off key of
course, with my teammates during bus
rides, until coach begged us to stop!
With all the lessons I've learned, the
most valuable way to sum them up is
this. Life is hard, and will continue to
be. But at the same time we become
exactly what we work to become. If we
do only what is required we become
one of many, ordinary.
But when we give, give and give
more effort the extra in extraordinary
is revealed. As Mr. Harben would say,
"chance favors the prepared mind."
With that being said, a prepared mind
may get you to the doorstep, but the
person who never gives up gets to walk
in first.
No such thing is a waste of time,
every experience increases knowledge
or burns calories! Congratulations Jose,
you have proven the most knowledge-
able, an honor you have won rightfully.
Class of 2013 we made it! Let's continue
to represent a number one staff and
students with quality and excellence.

Polk Leads State in Graduate

Employment for Second Year


Polk State College is once
again the state's leader in prepar-
ing graduates for immediate
employment.
New data show that 86 percent
of students in the College's work-
force-based programs secured
employment within just months of
graduation.
Polk State outranked all other
27 Florida College System institu-
tions, and is well ahead of the
statewide job-placement average
of 74 percent.
This is the second consecutive
year that Polk State has led the
stdte in graduate employment.
Polk State President Eileen
Holden described the newly
released data as quantitative
evidence of the College's success
in serving both-students and
employers.
"Every class we schedule, every
program we offer, and every
degree we confer is tied to meeting
workforce needs in our com-
munity. We provide our business
partners with the workforce they
need to prosper and our students
with the knowledge and training
they need to enjoy gainful careers.


This is the reason we exist, and it
always will be, no matter where we
rank on the list but, yes, being
ranked No. 1 in back-to-back years
is very exciting," she said.
The data was released by the
Florida Education and Training
Placement Information Program
(FETPIP). The data pertain to
graduates in 2010-11, the most
recent year available. Workforce-
based programs include the
Associate in Science degree,
Educator Preparation Institute,
and the many certificates the
College offers.
Peter Usinger, director of institu-
tional research, effectiveness and
planning for the College, said that
it is particularly striking that Polk
State graduates were successful in
securing jobs even during a period
of steep unemployment.
During the last quarter of 2010,
the average rate of unemploy-
ment in Polk County was 12.2
percent, higher than the statewide
average during the same period
of 11.1 percent, according to the
Florida Department of Economic
Opportunity.
By the fourth quarter of


2011 -at the end of the period
examined by the recent FETPIP
data Polk County's unemploy-
ment rate had improved only to
11.1 percent, still well above the
state's 9.5 percent.
"Polk County's unemployment
is persistently higher than the
statewide average. At the same
time, Polk State's graduates are
getting jobs at higher rates than
graduates of any other public col-
lege in Florida. The data validate
the education Polk State provides
- there is real demand for our
graduates," Usinger said.
Also significant is that Polk
State workforce program gradu-
ates earned an average full-time
wage of $40,864, according to the
FETPIP data. That is well ahead
of the county average of $35,243,
according to the Central Florida
Development Council.
Polk State's state-leading gradu-
ate employment is the result of the
College's deep integration with the
local business community, Usinger
said.

PRIDE of
POLK


It wasn't that long ago that Shane Reynolds
was studying to be an air conditioning techni-
cian, a field he didn't love but that would pay
the bills.
Today, he's the recently promoted rescue
chief of the Lakeland Fire Department.
The path from there to here began with one
pivotal conversation and eventually led him to
Polk State College -and he's so thankful that
it did.
"Polk State was exactly what I was looking
for. It restored my faith in education," he said,
Reynolds grew up in Mulberry, graduating
from Mulberry High School in 1992.
"At the time when I graduated, I wanted
to start a business," he said. "As a native
Floridian, I thought, 'What is something that
we can't live without in Florida?' The answer I
came up with was air-conditioning."'
So he headed to Traviss Career Center in
Lakeland, and started a two-year air-condi-
tioning training program.
Reynolds was just six months from gradu-
ating when he got to talking with a fellow
student, a former New York Police Department
detective.
"He said to me, 'This isn't what you want to
do for the rest of your life.' He said I looked
like a firefighter and that I should check that
out," Reynolds said.
Reynolds kept thinking about the con-
versation. He'd never thought about being
a firefighter he wasn't even one of those
young boys who dreams of driving a fire truck
when he grows up.
But something about his classmate's com-
ment stuck with Reynolds, and he soon
contacted his cousin, who was working as a
firefighter inYbor City. He visited his cousin at
the fire station and watched firsthand as the
firefighters responded to a call.
He knew then that he had to change his
career plans.


"I knew that I had to be a firefighter, that
this was what I was meant to do," he said. "I
wanted to be part of something bigger than
myself."
Reynolds soon enrolled in the Fire Academy
at Hillsborough Community College, where
he continued on to earn his certification as an
Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).
In 1995, he began working as a firefighter
for the City of Lakeland, and soon he was
back in school, this time at Polk State College.
He earned his Associate in Science in Fire
Science Technology in 2003 and his Associate
in Science in EMS in 2005. He is now currently
enrolled in the College's Bachelor of Applied
Science in Supervision and Management
degree program.
Polk's EMS program, he said, offered him an
education unrivaled by any other program in
the area and much of that has to do with
EMS Program Director Don Guillette.
"Don is tough on everyone. He's not there to
be your buddy, but he does a great job at what
he does," Reynolds said.
"He teaches you to be a professional. He
gives you respect, but if you are out of line, he
will let you know. Education doesn't have to
always be relaxed and laissez faire. It can be
tough and challenging. We need people to take
direct orders and get the job done right and
that's what Don teaches you."
Reynolds said that the quality of the EMS
program is enhanced by the fact that Guillette
and his instructors all have real-world experi-
ence; in fact, many still work in the EMS field.
As Reynolds furthered his education, his
career flourished, too. He was promoted to
lieutenant in 2004, and earlier this year was
named rescue chief.
In his new role, one of his major responsi-
bilities is to maintain certifications for EMTs,
paramedics, advanced life support personnel,
making sure the department is abiding by
local and state guidelines. He also plans and
oversees all in-house medical training for the
department.
In addition to his new position at the LFD,
Reynolds also recently agreed to serve on the
advisory board for Polk State's EMS program.
The EMS advisory board, like those for other
College degree programs, is comprised of

Center will be located off State Road
60 in Bartow, and will house high-tech
degree programs and the Polk State
Corporate College, which provides in-
demand workforce training for indus-
tries as varied as information technol-
ogy and supply chain management.
Construction began at the 20-acre
site in late 2012, but it wasn't until
recent weeks that the building "went
vertical" as they say in the construc-
tion business.
'All the floors have been poured,
and we have walls," said Travis Altman,
project engineer at Polk State Lakeland.
The major focus of the project now
is constructing interior walls and the
roof, Altman said.
While production progresses,
Clancey has been forging new


partnerships to ensure the most
advanced training opportunities for
students.
One of the key developments of
those new partnerships is a $1-million
process training unit (PTU) that is be-
ing sponsored by Rockwell Automation,
a leader in industrial automation;
Endress + Hauser, a supplier of indus-
trial measurement and automation
equipment; TriNova, a provider of
measurement and process services for
a variety of industries; and AMJ, the
Florida division of TriNova.
The PTU, Clancey explained, is
exactly the same equipment that
students whether they're seek-
ing a degree through the College's
Engineering Technology program or
completing workforce training through
the Corporate College will use on the
job.
"This is the same equipment used by
almost all our process plants and juice


plants," Clancey said.
"Having this equipment here will be
a huge advantage for our students. As
they learn about manufacturing and all
the automation and instrumentation
that characterizes today's manufactur-
ing sector, it is imperative that they
become acquainted with this technol-
ogy as early as possible."
Another key partnership is with
RETA, the Refrigerating Engineers &
Technicians Association, which will
sponsor an ammonia cooling training
system.
"We will be the first RETA training
site in the southeast. All the big plants
- Publix, Florida's Natural should
use it," Clancey said.
In the case of both partnerships, the
College will be the beneficiary of indus-
try instructors who will be "embedded"
on-site, providing students with their
real-world experience.
"We're not going to be using people


who have been out of the industry
10-15 years," Clancey said.
All of it the equipment, the
partnerships, the instructors will put
the Polk State Corporate College on a
whole new map, Clancey said.
"This is going to propel us to become
a regional service center," he said. "We
will also become a showroom for the
companies' latest products, which will
bring in companies all over the south-
east to see us. It's all going to mean a
tremendous amount of exposure."
During the tour of the site Clancey
fielded a variety of questions, from how
many people the building will serve
daily between 250 to 300 to when
the building will open.
Answer: 2014, just in time for the
College's 50th anniversary.
"We started in Bartow" he said.
"Now, 50 years later, we're coming back
to Bartow."

representatives from local employers and the College.
In the case of the EMS program, Guillette explained,
represented employers include Polk County Fire
Rescue, the Winter Haven Fire Department, and other
agencies.
Through advisory boards, the College ensures that
its programs are delivering training that is in demand
by real-world employers.
Guillette described Reynolds as a welcome addition
to the advisory board.

advisory boards for the College's degree programs,
helping to guide and shape its curriculum to match
the real-world expectations, and input from the
business community is also vital to new degree
development.
A recent example is Polk State Aerospace, which
launched in January. The program allows students to
earn associate's degrees in Professional Pilot Science,
preparing them to receive their commercial pilot
certificates from the Federal Aviation Administration.
They are then ready to begin careers as pilots or flight
instructors.
Polk State Aerospace was developed to address an
international need for pilots one study by Boeing
showed 460,000 pilots will be needed in the next 20
years. The trend is particularly acute here in Central
Florida, a worldwide hub for pilot training.
The College collaborated with the area aviation
community in developing its Aerospace program,
ensuring the training it provides is in demand and
aligns with employers' needs.
Lakeland Linder Regional Airport Director Gene
Conrad was one who supported the new program,
and he said its creation presents a multitude of pos-
sibilities for Polk County.
Prior to Polk State Aerospace, students who wanted
to study aviation had to leave the area, Conrad said.
Now they're able to stay right here in Polk County,
complete their higher education, gain hands-on
experience at local airports and aviation-related
businesses and in the process, grow Polk County's
aviation industry.


and different viewpoints on how to accomplish a
task," Guillette said.
"He is persistent, proactive and positive. He was
a leader as a student, and that leadership hasn't
stopped. It means a lot to have someone like him,
who is willing, eager and able to make Polk State EMS
even better, on board."
For Reynolds, the advisory board committee is
a chance for him to positively influence the EMTs,
paramedics, and maybe even chiefs, who will follow
in his footsteps.
"It's a chance to give back to a program that did
a lot for me. What we do is a public service and the
lion's share of what we do is respond to medical calls.
You have to get the firefighters you see in the mov-
ies out of your head. I've spent my career at busy


"Having the Polk State degree here is a massive
piece of the educational pipeline and will help us at-
tract additional aviation business to Polk County," he
said. "When companies are looking at the area, one
of the things they want to know is if there is a local
talent pool."
Polk State's integration with the local industry
- whether aviation, healthcare, or other sectors -
and the resulting employment and earnings its
students enjoy are all elements of the College's overall
nearly half-billion-dollar annual economic impact.
Earlier this year, a study by Idaho-based Economic
Modeling Specialists Intl., showed that Polk State
boosts the area economy by $481.8 million each year.
Of the total impact, $443 million is a direct result
of increased earnings students and alumni receive
because of their education, the study showed.
Polk State delivers its quality, workforce-based
education at the county's lowest price point, and the
study found students receive a 17.3-percent return on
their investment in a Polk State education.
Business leaders across the county hailed the
results of the EMSI study.
"The study quantified what we've always known
- that Polk State's impact reaches far beyond its
campuses and classrooms," said Steve Scruggs,
president of the Lakeland Economic Development
Council.
"Polk State helps 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, affordable higher-education institution right
here at home goes a long way in retaining talent in
Polk County. Polk State is an invaluable resource in
the economic development of our county."
Winter Haven Economic Development Council
Executive Director David Petr added:


stations, and put my hands on a lot of people and
it's not always been roses," Reynolds said. "EMS
students need to really think about the realities of the
job and whether they can stomach the realities of the
job."
Polk State EMS students regularly outperform their
peers around the state on state licensing exams.
In addition to EMS, Polk State Public Safety offers
associate's and bachelor's degrees in Criminal Justice,
and an associate'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.


"Polk State College is one of the best tools I have in
my economic development toolbox. When speaking
with business leaders interested in moving to our
area, they demand a highly skilled workforce to fuel
their businesses. 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."
For all the big numbers, and the far-reaching
impact of its partnerships and programs, the College's
success in helping graduates secure employment
- and earn higher-than-average wages is best told
through the stories of its individual graduates.
One is Manal Awad.
Awad just graduated from the College's Nursing
program in May and knows firsthand the difference
a Polk State degree makes. When she graduated, she
had already been hired as a full-time nurse at Winter
Haven Hospital, making approximately $48,000
annually.
Even better, Awad said, is that she graduated free of
any student-loan debt. Thanks to Polk State's afford-
ability and financial aid, approximately 90 percent of
Polk State graduates do not need student loans.
With her new salary and her lack of student-loan
debt, Awad plans on buying her first new car and
heading back to school for her Bachelor of Science in
Nursing degree and eventually a master's degree.
"I'm going to spoil myself with a new car prob-
ably a Camry. (Winter Haven Hospital) will help pay
for my further education, but I'll be making enough
to pay whatever isn't covered. Getting my AS at Polk
helped me get my foot in the door at Winter Haven
Hospital and will help me get where I want to go," she
said.

New Polk State Camp Will Explore Network Virtualization


/


A new summer camp at
Polk State College will teach
high school students about
the emerging trend of network
virtualization, which busi-
nesses of all kinds and sizes
are quickly adopting for its
cost-saving possibilities.
With network virtualization,
computer users have access
to the latest applications and
software on their desktops.
The difference is that those
apps and programs aren't
housed on their individual
hard drives; they live on a
server that may be down the
hall, in another state or across
the ocean.
Through network virtu-
alization and why it's
becoming so popular busi-
nesses see huge savings on
everything from hardware to
maintenance.
During Polk State's first
Network Virtualization Camp,
participants will get an
introduction to the concept
- and the technology that
preceded it.
"We're going to start off with
a history of computing, then
move on to hardware and
hooking machines together,
and then move on to how
virtual machines are hooked
together and why it's easier to
work with virtual machines,"


DIRECTOR

and beyond.
It's an intriguing balance that gives
him unique perspective in his new role
as the first director of the College's Arts
Center.
Polk State College officially opened
the doors to the Arts Center, 1099 State
Road 60 East, earlier this year, after
taking ownership of the building from
the Lake Wales Arts Council in 2011
and completing a number of structural
improvements.
Since it opened, the Center has of-
fered arts-centered events for families,
credit courses for students of the
College, and free gallery exhibits for the
public.
S Now with Craig on board, the College
will significantly increase program-
ming at the location, positioning it as a
countywide arts resource.
"As the Polk State Lake Wales Arts
Center, we will broaden the draw of
this location to extend throughout
Polk County," said Polk State President
Eileen Holden. "It will be a place where
S children in Lakeland and Lake Alfred
come to learn, where aspiring artists
in Frostproof and Fort Meade come
to refine their crafts, and where art
enthusiasts from Bartow and Babson
Park come to hear great music and
view new exhibits. Like everything this
College does, the Arts Center will serve
Small of Polk County. We are excited for
the future of this location and all that it
will mean to Polk."
As director, of course, Craig (whose
first name is pronounced O-shoo-bee)
will play an integral role in the future
of the Arts Center, all the while draw-
ing on his personal experiences in the
Starts both on the administrative and
creative sides.
For as long as he can remember,
Craig has played the djembe, a West
African instrument that is shaped like
- an hourglass and is played with bare
hands, and the conga, which has its
roots in Africa but is also a mainstay of
Latin American music.
After graduating from high school
in Gainesville, Craig went to Florida

ship; while there, he played with its
Marching 100 and jazz ensemble.
Always strong in math and science,
Craig earned a bachelor's degree in
Industrial Engineering, though he also
has a minor in Jazz Studies.
While studying at FAMU, he got
get his first taste of arts administra-
tion with the university's Orchesis .
Contemporary Dance Theatre, which
he directed while still a student.
"It was my first taste of arts admin-
istration on a big level," he said. "From
then on, I was always interested in both
sides of the arts not only the artistic
side, but also the administration side.
I knew I could do the administration
side, and do it well," he said.
After graduation in 1999, Craig found
himself at a crossroads earn a good
living as an engineer or pursue his
lifelong passion for music.


He chose the latter.
After college, Craig packed up and
headed north to Philadelphia. For
years, the life of a professional musi-
cian worked well for Craig, who filled
the time with performances and
teaching stints at a wide variety of
venues, including the renowned Alvin
Alley American Dance Theatre in New
York City.
By 2003, that interest in arts admin-
istration led him back south, where he
enrolled at Florida State University;
he graduated with his master's in Arts
Administration with an emphasis in
Grants Management and Program
Development.
"The field of arts administration is
still evolving, but I found that it was full
of people who were performing artists
and still wanted to be around the work.
That was appealing to me," he said.
Immediately before joining Polk


State, he worked in grants and research
at Florida Memorial University, eventu-
ally becoming director of grants and
sponsored research and Historically
Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU)
Title III programs.
Polk State Winter Haven Provost
Sharon Miller said all of Craig's previ-
ous work will serve the College well.
"He has a very neat package of skills
that will help propel the Arts Center to
where it needs to be and will help the
College build necessary partnerships. I
think that we're most fortunate to have
found the skill set that we've found in
him. He has such a unique repertoire of
skills," she said.
"He will help us build our partner-
ships within Lake Wales but also
throughout the Polk county community
at large."


said Polk State Professor of
Computer Science John Huff,
who will be teaching in the
camp.
Polk State's Network
Virtualization Camp will
take place from 9 a.m. to 5
p.m. July 22-26 at Polk State
Lakeland, 3425 Winter Lake
Road. It is free, but limited to
only 20 high school students.
During the week, students
will get hands-on experi-
ence with networking and
will visit the Mulberry
headquarters of Badcock &
More Home Furniture, where
they will learn about the'
company's computer hard-
ware, help desk, and use of
virtualization.
"This will be a very hands-
on experience that will stir the
students' interest and inspire
them to learn more about the
computer industry," Huff said.
Students will.end the week
by making presentations on
virtualization using Prezi, a
web-based presentation tool.
Interested students must be
recommended by a teacher.
They should visit polk.edu/

Ending on a high note


Bulldogs sharp in Spring Jamboree win


over


Lake Region


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
A spring football season that started
with questions marks ended with some
pleasant answers for the Frostproof
varsity football team.
The Bulldogs hit the road to wrap up
a month of practice last Tuesday and
defeated Lake Region, 14-7, although the
visitors dominated the play much more
than the score indicated.
From the performances of rotating
quarterbacks Kaleel Gaines and Marcus
Bobb, to the offensive line, to the
defensive unit, Coach Price Harris found
things to like in almost each of them.
"We did some good things and we did
some bad things, but overall I was pretty
happy with the guy's effort," Harris said.
"The attitude has been great all spring,
and we were real physical. Anytime
you're physical, good things happen.
We've got some little things to work on
that are very important, but when that
stuff get's rolling, we're going to be all
right."
Gaines and Bobb were pressed into
action when Xavier Gaines, expected
to be the team's starter at quarterback
as he has been for the past two years,
was forced to the sidelines because of a
school suspension. However, Harris said
he hopes the suspension was a learn-
ing experience for the talented but still
young signal caller, and that he should
fully participate in the team's summer
conditioning and seven-on-seven
camps.
"He'll be going the whole time with


us," Harris said about the team's summer
work. "He had a great attitude about it
(the suspension). He will be just fine,
we just have to make sure we're all on
the same page, that some things are
unacceptable."
The good news is Kaleel Gaines and
Bobb got a chance to learn the offense
from a different perspective.
"They're athletes. They're used to being
on the field. We tried to play to their
strengths, and for both of them, that's
rolling out, getting outside the pocket,"
Harris said. "I was proud of the way they
performed. What's good is we found
some depth, that we don't have to rely on
one person. The guys just worked their
butts off all spring. It's going to help us
all."
Kaleel Gaines put Frostproof on the
board in the first quarter on a three-
yard scamper, and the Bulldogs second
touchdown came midway through the
third period on a 60-yard run by Trevis
Herrington. Both extra point kicks were
missed, but the final two points came on
a defensive safety in the last minute of
the third quarter.
Gaines had what would have been the
highlight play of the night taken off the
board. He broke off a 75-yard touchdown
run in the final seconds of the first half,
but the play was called back on a penalty
The Bulldogs did a nice job on the
other side of the ball too.
"I thought the defense played lights
out," Harris added, noting that the
Thunder's only score came against
Frostproof's back up unit. "I was proud
of they way they all handled themselves."

Waiting is the hardest part, or at least that's what they say. But, after 12 years, what's a few
more minutes, as from left: Sonia Rodriguez, Carolina Callejas, Elizabeth Lizdale and Anna
Patricia Montanez wait for graduation to begin.


CELEBRATION
FROM PAGE 1
Norris encouraged graduates to invest
their time wisely and to remember their
time in high school, not through years,
but through moments and friendships.
"I know that as I look out to all of you,
I will measure my time here in a much
different way," she said. "I will measure it
in all the friends that I enjoyed these last
four years. Some are pretty palatable, and
others were much closer, but I'll remem-
ber at least one fondly, as I'm sure you
all will too. And when many of our high
school memories begin to fade, that's
how we'll ultimately measure the time we
spent here: not in periods, or semesters,
or years, but in the friendships that we
made and the time we spent together."
Following her opening remarks,
Salutatorian Tiara Gaines and
Valedictorian Jose Gonzalez offered their
addresses. (Their complete speeches are
printed elsewhere in this edition of The
Frostproof News.)
Gaines shared her fondest school
memories and thanked her parents and
mentors who helped her reach the point
where she is now.
"With all the lessons that I have
learned, the most valuable way to sum
them up is this: life is hard, and will
continue to be, but at the same time, we
become what we work to become," she
said. "If we do only what is required, we
become one of many, ordinary. But when
we give and give and give more effort,
extra and extraordinary is revealed."
Gonzalez confessed that writing
his speech was a daunting task, as he
humbly claimed there were others more
qualified than him to offer advice and
inspiration.
Nevertheless, he reminded his fellow
graduates that the values they learned in
school have prepared them to overcome
the challenges that awaited them in the
real world.
"The achievements that we have ac-
complished these past four years would
not have been possible without those
people in ;ur lives that pushed us through,
for they were the ones who encouraged
qualities such as leadership, curiosity,
determination, and independence," he
said. "These qualities will help us years
from now when we don't exactly remem-
ber what the capital of Nicaragua is."

The farewell address was offered by
Allyssia Raines, who boasted of the
greatness of the class and mentioned
how honored she was to know everyone,
either personally or indirectly.
"I wish the best of luck to everyone as
we close this chapter of our lives, and
open up the next, because honestly, the
best is yet to come," she said.
This was the final graduation to be
attended by assistant principal Claire
Bush, whose 40-year long career will
draw to a close upon her retirement
this year. Special guests attending that
evening included Debra Wright and Dick
Mullenax of the Polk County School
Board, Polk County Director of Athletics
Don Bridges, Frostproof Elementary
Principal Dart Meyers, Assistant
Principal Shay Hixenbaugh, Ben Griffin
Elementary Principal Patti McGill, and
Assistant Principal Beth Wilkin.
The class song was "Hall of Fame" by
Script and Will.i.am, and was played
during the recessional.
The senior class motto was: "Though
no one can go back and make a brand
new start, anyone can start from now
and make a brand new ending" by Carl
Bard.
The Pledge of Allegiance was led by
Chelsea Jacobs, and the singing of the
Alma Mater was led by Ashton Robillard.

State could step in on school s-


ng


If school district doesn't cut budget, DOE could tell them what to do


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
While Polk County teachers' and school
administrators' jobs are safe for next year,
the school board will have to take an axe to
its $1 billion budget to make up a fluctuat-
ing deficit which, for right now, is hovering
around $12 million.
If the board doesn't find a way to bal-
ance its budget fairly soon, the worst-case
scenario is that the state Department of
Education will step in and tell the school
district how to handle its money and
where and what may have to be cut to
bring the general operating and self-
insurance accounts back into the black.
"The reality is that we're going to have
to cut personnel or programs. We've cut
everything else and we're still $12 million
off," said school board member Dick
Mullenax during a meeting last week. "It
looks like we're going to have to bite a
really tough bullet."
Part of the problem stems from a 2012


legislative directive mandating teacher pay
raises, but that's exacerbated by a rising
number of "baby boomer" teachers who
are retiring, according to Audra Curts, the
school district's budget guru. The district is
being forced to come up with the cash to
pay for retirees' accrued vacation and sick
leave and supplemental pay for teachers
who take on other duties, she explained at
the Board's Tuesday meeting.
Curts told the board that their reserve
funds, set aside to cover emergencies, will
drop to a third of the 3 percent the state
requires-and well below the 5 percent its
own policies dictate. Falling below that
state level could bring the state DOE into
play, she said.
Internal auditor Sheila Phelps told the
board it may have to consider putting
employees on furlough days off without
pay or eliminate jobs.
Those jobs safe are those covered under
the teachers' union contract. District
Human Resources Director Dennis Dunn
told the board it had to approve the


2013-14 school year contracts with teach-
ers and principals because it (the board)
had already missed its two-weeks-before-
school-is-out deadline. Dunn said cuts in
teachers or administrators could not be
made because the board had waited too
late to take action under the existing union
contract.
The board asked union president
Marianne Capoziello if the union would
give the board another extension, but
Capoziello said no.
"This isn't the first time we've extended
the time," she said, "We are willing to work
with a new superintendent. We're looking
for more transparency and hopefully can
come to an agreement to keep people
working."
Board member Hunt Berryman
countered, saying, 'A budget deficit is go-
ing to be hard to dig out of without some
compromise," and added he was "disap-
pointed the new superintendent won't
have more time to work this out."
Berryman echoed Mullenax's comments


saying he didn't see how the budget could
be balanced without cutting jobs.
"But, we need to keep our 5 percent
threshold," he added.
Outgoing interim superintendent John
Stewart added: "Unless you turn to where
the people are, you aren't going to get the
cuts you need in the district office. You
have a new superintendent coming in
and you can tell her to look at where those
reductions must come from."
The new Superintendent of Schools
Kathryn Leroy takes over the reins of the
schools on May 31.
Meanwhile, board member Lori
Cunningham iterated that it was upto
staff to recommend where cuts must be
made.
"I don't know where to make these cuts.
If I did, I'd be making those decisions," she
said.
The board will reassess the budget at its
regular workshop and meeting on June 11
and again at a special budget meeting on
June 19.

Noise phobia is relatively common,
and with storm season approaching,
can be very serious for some owners.
Signs of noise phobia include panting,
drooling, whining or barking, hiding in
small spaces, shaking, trembling, cling-
ing to the owner, not wanting to eat or
pacing. Occasionally there may be a
specific event that starts the problem
(such as a loud clap of thunder imme-
diately over the house or the neighbors
setting off fireworks), but often times
the trigger is not known. There does
seem to be a higher incidence in some
breeds collies, Golden Retrievers and
German Shepherds being among the
highest.
While noise phobia can be seen
whether the owner is present or absent,
separation anxiety is triggered by the

dogs will jump out of windows or try to
chew through walls seeking to get to the
owner), excessive vocalization, house
soiling and vomit. These signs occur
only when the owner is absent. This is
stressful for the owner and can lead to
the dog being placed in a new home or
a shelter.
Travel fears often arise from going
places that are perceived as being
negative, such as the veterinarian or the
groomer, or from being affected by the
motion and noise of the vehicle. Many
animals vocalize or become nasties outs
on the car.
Proper socialization is important for
all dogs, but especially young ones.
Expose the animal to what he or she will


need to be used to in the household, for
example traveling to ball games, visitors
staying in the house, the owner being
gone for long hours at work, etc. Do not
overwhelm the animal with too many
stimuli, but be sure to get the animal
used to your lifestyle. If something
changes in your life, work schedule, liv-
ing arrangements, etc., try to adjust the
dog gradually. Many of them do not like
change any more than most people.
Treating anxiety can be difficult in
some cases, but your veterinarian can
help develop a proper treatment plan
for your dog. Some treatments may
involve medications, but there are

alternatives to medication also. Adaptil,
a pheromone product, can be very
effective. It comes as a diffuser, spray or
collar and helps to keep the dog calm
by releasing the pheromone the mother
dog releases when she is nursing the
puppies. There is also a product called
the Thunder Shirt, this works by ap-
plying pressure around the dog's chest.
This pressure keeps the dog calm either
by distracting him from the actual
cause of anxiety or by comforting him,


no one knows exactly. But it does work
in many cases.
A few things to remember ... do not
coddle your dog during an anxiety
attack as this can reinforce the anxiety
and make it worse. Also do not scold
the dog as this too can increase the
anxiety level. There are are also behav-
ior modification techniques that work
very well for separation anxiety; your
veterinarian can discuss these with
you. There are some techniques that
can help noise phobia also, but must
be done carefully. Always consult your
veterinarian before trying behavior
modifications on your own.

Business allows people comfort at home


Comfort at Home allows terminal patients to stay in their houses


By JAMES COULTER
CORRESPONDENT
When Dennis Walker's great aunt,
Bera Tremper, 90, was diagnosed with
dementia, he knew she would require
professional assistance.
Though she had exceptional long-
term memory, especially with recalling
childhood memories, her short-term
memory was beginning to deteriorate.
She also had trouble walking, requiring
the use of a walker, often falling during
the night.
Since she lived 50 miles away from
his home, Walker knew his care would
not be sufficient for her, yet he wanted
to respect her wishes to remain in her
home.
"She is very independent and wants
to be alone from time to time, but she
is very understanding of her condi-
tion," Walker said.
He hired a caregiving service for her,
but having failed to perform a back-
ground check, learned the hard way
how unreliable it was, leaving both him
and his aunt with a bad experience.
Thankfully, following this trauma,
Walker was introduced to Patricia
Saunders and her caregiving service


Comfort At Home Caregivers, which
now provides them with a far better
service.
His aunt now resides under the
supervision of professional caregivers,
who not only look after her needs, but
also respect her privacy and indepen-
dence, though she also appreciates
their companionship and attention.
Walker boasts about how comfort-
able he feels entrusting the health and
'safety of his aunt to people as caring as
Saunders and her caregivers.
Started one year ago by Patricia
Saunders, Comfort at Home Caregivers
is an in-home care service that allows
senior citizens to reside at home rather
than move to a nursing facility.
Under their service, senior citizens
can receive hourly service or have
caregivers live with them. The service
may not save people money but it
allows people to live their lives where
they may be more comfortable.
Only the most professional caregiv-
ers are chosen by Saunders, who runs
extensive background checks on poten-
- tial employees, and only hires certified
nursing assistants, medical assistants
and those with more than two years of
medical caregiving assistance.


To ensure that her clients receive
the best service possible, and that her
caregivers provide it, she occasionally
pays surprise visits.
Whether through her caregivers
or through her own effort, Saunders
ensures that her clients live indepen-
dently in the comfort of their own
home.
Even when off-duty, both the caregiv-
ers and Saunders will remain atten-
tive to their clients, contacting them
occasionally, and asking if they require
any assistance.
Born in Blytheville, Ark., Saunders
has lived in Fort Meade for more than
30 years, where she owned two hair
salons and three restaurants before
pursuing her life's calling in medical
care.
"I've always had the compassion for
it," Saunders said.
After receiving her medical certifica-
tion from Florida Career Center, she
has worked as a medical caregiver for
more than six years.
One of her most influential clients
was an elderly gentleman, Olma
Hendrick, who, for her first two
weeks, did not take kindly to her, but
after enjoying a dinner and a friendly


conversation, soon became close
friends. Saunders continued to care for
him from August 2010 until his death in
March 2011. :
During her time with him, Hendricks
told her that he wanted to stay in the
comfort of his home, which inspired
the name of her business.
Her business began about a year ago,
but only recently began to get off the
ground. She currently has four clients,
and hopes to obtain more in the future.
Until then, she works tirelessly to
provide the best quality service that
others would highly recommend. And
if she continues to treat her clients,
well, then hopefully, her business will
continue to grow.
"I think from my experience with my
aunt and from my research on elderly
care, is that the number one fear of
seniors is losing their homes and not
being able to live at home, and that is
something Patty really cares about,"
Walker said.
The office of Comfort At Home
Caregivers is located at 503 East 5th St.,
Fort Meade.
For more information, call
Saunders at 863-577-9342, or email

Group forms pregnancy safe haven


Local leaders met with one goal in
mind to ensure their family, friends
and neighbors never feel as if they have
to face pregnancy alone.
The kick off meeting for the Polk Safe
Haven Coalition featured the founder
of the statewide Safe Haven program,
Nick Silverio, and Lars White, Oviedo
Fire chief and Safe Haven advocate.
Polk County Commissioner George
Lindsey has also been a catalyst for the
cause.
"I've been touched by recent events in
our area that involved pregnant women
who, for whatever reason, felt as if they
had no one to turn to for help," Lindsey
said. "I knew there had to be organiza-
tions in the county that could help, so I
began to research. I found that there cer-
tainly were and that all thought it would
be beneficial to create a platform where
these organizations could collaborate
and provide a more comprehensive


community outreach. And so the Polk
Safe Haven Coalition was born."
The coalition was formed in partner-
ship with the statewide Safe Haven
program, which operates a hotline that
serves individuals in need of guidance
or assistance during pregnancy.
Florida statute includes a Safe Haven
law, which provides a discreet and
anonymous avenue for those in distress
to surrender an unharmed newborn,
up to seven days old, to a Safe Haven
facility. A Safe Haven facility is any hos-
pital, fire rescue station or emergency
medical station that is staffed 24 hours
a day, seven days a week. The newborn
must be given directly to a member of
the staff at the facility. However, the
process is completely anonymous and
no questions are asked.
There have since been 191 sur-
renders this means 191 newborns
have been saved. Safe Haven has also


assisted more than 5,100 individuals
in need through the hotline. It's been
more than worth it, he said.
For information, contact Taylor
Carson at 863-534-6020 or taylorcar-
son@polk-county.net.
For information on the statewide
Safe Haven program, visit www.

haven@asafehavenfornewborns.com.

LWMC gets accreditation
in ultrasound
Lake Wales Medical Center has been
awarded a three-year term of accredi-
tation in ultrasound as the result of
an extensive review by the American
College of Radiology. Ultrasound
imaging, also known as sonography,
uses high-frequency sound waves to


produce images of internal body parts
to help providers diagnose illness,
injury or other medical problems.
"We are excited about this accredita-
tion because it's one more indicator of
the high quality care we deliver to our
patients every day," said Toby Edwards,
Director of Imaging Services at the
hospital. "Lake Wales Medical Center
is now ACR accredited in ultrasound,
mammography, CT and MRI."
The ACR gold seal of accreditation
represents the highest level of image
quality and patient safety. It is awarded
only to facilities meeting ACR Practice
Guidelines and Technical Standards,
following a peer-review evaluation by
board-certified physicians and medical
physicists who are experts in the field.
Image quality, personnel qualifications,
adequacy of facility equipment, quality
control procedures and quality assur-
ance programs are assessed.
