Tests show problems with


city fire hydrants

More than a dozen deemed unusable because of low water flow


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Frostproof Mayor Anne
Dickinson thought she should
be pretty safe if a fire were to
break out at her house. After
all, there is a fire plug right in
front of where she lives.
But these days, when she
looks out the front window,
all she can see is an ugly black
plastic bag covering that
hydrant.
That's because a recent
test of the city's hydrants
found that more than a dozen
simply don't provide enough
water flow to work properly.

Miss Frostproof event signals


return of Frostproof 'Fourth'


By BRIAN ACKLEY
BACKLEY @HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

Even Ramona and JeremyWaibel
probably didn't imagine that reviving the
Miss Frostproof pageant would be this big
of a job.
Not because there's no interest, but
because more than two dozen local
young ladies have registered to be part of
Saturday night's big event.
It is has been a few years since the
pageant has been held. The Waibels
have invested plenty of sweat equity
and time to bring it back, in large part
because they were saddened that the
city, over time, had seen its Fourth of

July celebration fade away.
The Pageant is set for 6 p.m. in the
American Legion Post 95 Memorial
Auditorium at city hall. Tickets will be
$5 and sold at the door.
The big room was abuzz with activity
Monday night when the 25 contestants
went through a rehearsal session.
The actual "Miss Frostproof," the one
that will represent the city publicly, will
come from the age 15 to 18 age group,
although there will be other age division
winners as well. Call it a Queen and her
court.

Palace Pizza opened its doors at 105 E. Main St.,

"It has to be fresh to taste the best'."
While the menu is filled with traditional pizza
offerings, the Palace menu also suggests Strombolis

folded pizza shell filled with cheeses, meats and veg-
gies) submarine sandwiches and a variety of pasta
dishes.
Topping the pasta menu is the spaghetti or baked
ziti, stuffed shells, ravioli, manicotti, lasagna or egg-
plant or chicken parmigiana. The pasta dishes range
from $5.95 at lunchtime and $6:95 at dinner, to a high
of $9.95 for the dinner meals.

Among the offerings on the specialty menu is
penne rustica which is a pasta sauteed in marinara

$8.95 for dinner. There are also chicken and veal dish-

generations, Lamuto says.
Every day, diners can get the new daily special

VIEWPOINT




Tax favoritism raises questions


The continuing efforts to attract or run off- an
Amazon distribution center in central Florida have
raised two significant tax issues.
At first, Gov. Rick Scott didn't want Amazon ware-
houses in Florida because, by his reasoning, this was
the road to a sales tax "increase." That position created
consternation in Polk County, and particularly in
Winter Haven, which appeared to be a likely site for
the Amazon complex and perhaps 3,000 new jobs.
Scott, who is expected to have a real battle on his
hands in his bid for a second term, yanked away the
welcome mat for Amazon because if the giant mail
order firm has a facility in Florida, it must collect
Florida sales taxes, just like all other sellers of retail
goods in the state.
Scott, who is trying to take credit both for barring
new taxes and for attracting new jobs, first decided
that barring taxes was more important in this case.
While paying sales tax on Amazon. purchases would
be a new experience for most Floridians, state law
clearly requires payment of such taxes. But there is
a loophole of massive proportions: Mail order busi-
nesses are not required to collect the sales tax, so it
falls on customers to rat themselves out to the Florida
Department of Revenue and voluntarily pay taxes that
the seller, by all rights, should be collecting.
Businesses know that they better pay what is
called a "use tax" for untaxed purchases, because


Our Viewpoint
they are subject to DOR audits. But Joe and Minnie
Lunchbucket don't even know how to go about paying
the tax if they wanted to.
Congress is considering, but thus far has not en-
acted, legislation to require major national mail order
houses to collect state sales taxes. The task would be
incredibly simple with a computer program match-
ing ZIP codes of purchasers to tax laws from their
jurisdiction.
Instead, brick-and-mortar stores, which provide
jobs and pay taxes in the communities in which they
do business, must charge sales tax, while mail order
houses sell for 6 percent or more discounts by virtue of
not having to collect state and local option sales taxes.
A new tax? Hardly! This law would simply require
mail order vendors to collect taxes already on the
books.
When Scott decided that 3,000 new jobs (not to
mention fairness for Florida retailers) were more
important than a bogus "no new tax" stand, and put
the welcome mat back out, Florida cities and coun-
ties began a "can you top this?" competition to try to
attract the Amazon warehouse complex.
Last Wednesday, Hillsborough County commission-
ers offered a $6 million tax giveaway; it would charge


Amazon only half the property taxes the mail order,
giant should pay for its first six years.
We expect the tax giveaway bidding will continue.
We acknowledge that the game is played in this
tawdry fashion, and for the worst possible reason:
"Because everybody else does it."
Taxes are intended to generate the revenue neces-
sary to provide government services. They are not
imposed to punish some taxpayers, and they should
not be waived to favor others.
When one taxpayer pays less than his share, the
burden falls on other taxpayers to pay more than their
share.
If such favoritism is inescapable, we would rather
see it benefit mom and pop entrepreneurs who
put their life's savings into a corner hardware store
or a Main Street gift shop, not multi-billion dollar
businesses.
As a practical matter, Florida does not have to bribe
national firms to locate in the Sunshine State. We have
business-friendly tax policies, a diverse transportation
network, and a plentiful labor force.
And, as they say, when is the last time you heard of a
Floridian retiring and moving to North Dakota? Florida
tax policy may not be perfect, but making exceptions
to it for the benefit of high rollers at the expense of
those who have been paying their full share of taxes for
years is abundantly unfair.


Letters to the editor

America, repent or perish


America was founded on the premise
that our rights come from God (see the
Declaration of Independence). The God
of the Bible clearly states that we are to
live a moral life and that we will give an
account to Him for our conduct Even as
the human body requires pure drink-
ing water, so individuals and society
require moral living. Polluted water
contaminates pure water, and immoral-
ity pollutes individuals and society.
In recent decades, America has been
fed a heavy dose of atheistic evolu-
tion. Whenever a society ignores God,


immorality comes to the front. Someone
has said that, "When we play God, we act
like the devil."
Adolph Hitler and Mao Tse-Tung
played God. George Washington and
Abraham Lincoln believed God. What
we believe determines what we choose
to do.
"Repent or perish" has never been
a popular message, but instruction to
turn around and go the right direction
is the most loving advice we can hear.

The humanist vocation


A half-century ago, 14 percent
of college degrees were awarded to
people who majored in the humanities.
Today, only 7 percent of graduates in
the country are humanities majors.
Even over the past decade alone,
the number of incoming students
at Harvard who express interest in
becoming humanities majors has
dropped by a third.
Most people give an economic ex-
planation for this decline. Accounting
majors get jobs. Lit majors don't.
And there's obviously some truth to
this. But the humanities are not only
being bulldozed by an unforgiving job
market, they are committing suicide
because many humanists have lost

faith in their own enterprise.
Back when the humanities were
thriving, the leading figures had a
clear definition of their mission and
a fervent passion for it. The job of
the humanities was to cultivate the
human core, the part of a person we


might call the spirit, the soul, or, in
D.H. Lawrence's phrase, "the dark vast
forest."
This was the most inward and el-
emental part of a person. When you go
to a funeral and hear a eulogy, this is
usually the part they are talking about.
Eulogies aren't resumes. They describe
the person's care, wisdom, truthfulness
and courage. They describe the million
little moral judgments that emanate
from that inner region.
The humanist's job was to cultivate
this ground imposing intellectual
order upon it, educating the emotions
with art in order to refine it, offering
inspiring exemplars to get it properly
oriented.


Somewhere along the way, many
people in the humanities lost faith in
this uplifting mission. The humanities
turned from an inward to an outward
focus. They were less about the old
notions of truth, beauty and goodness
and more about political and social
categories like race, class and gender.
Liberal arts professors grew more mor-
alistic when talking about politics but
more tentative about private morality
because they didn't want to offend
anybody.
To the earnest 19-year-old with lofty
dreams of self-understanding and
moral greatness, the humanities in

Judges will be looking for lots of
qualities in the young ladies, who will
also be part of a casual and formalwear
competition.
"The whole package is what they are
looking for," Ramona said. The Saturday
show will also include a special salute to
veterans, because the pageant is a precur-
sor to a day of activities they have also
been organizing next Thursday, July 4.
Whoever is crowned Miss Frostproof
will be featured in a July 4 parade that will
start near the football stadium and move
down Scenic Highway to B Street.
Other activities that day will include a
softball tournament at Henderson Field, a
flag raising at 9 a.m. at the park near Lake
Reedy on Veterans Way, a cornhole tour-
nament, barbecue cook-off, live music
and family fun and games and vendors at
the historic Depot on Wall Street.
"The Depot will have a lot going on,"
Waibel added. Those events will start at
10 a.m. "Things are just kind of falling
into place. It's coming right along. We're
pretty excited about it."
They are hopeful that with the backing
of the city and community, the July 4th
celebration will again grow into some-
thing the city can look forward to on an
annual basis.
"The city of Frostproof has been
absolutely tremendous," in their support,
she added.
For any information on any of the
events, including vendors, the one-pitch
co-ed softball tournament, cook-off,
car show and parade, contact Waibel at
853-934-3979.'

Although the event is this Saturday, the 2013 Little Miss Frostproof Pageant will kick off July 4th festivities in the city since the winner will be one
of the featured attraction in the Independence Day parade. More photos on page two. These youngsters, who will be part of the pageant, were
part of a show rehearsal Monday night, and didn't seem to mind being in the spotlight.

this guise were bound to seem less
consequential and more boring.
SSo now the humanities are in crisis.
Rescuers are stepping forth. On
Thursday, the American Academy of
Arts and Sciences released a report
called "The Heart of the Matter,"
making the case for the humanities
and social sciences. (I was a member
of this large commission, although I
certainly can't take any credit for the
result.) The report is important, and
you should read it. It focuses not only
on the external goods the humanities
can produce (creative thinking, good
writing), but also the internal trans-
formation (spiritual depth, personal
integrity). It does lack some mission-
ary zeal that hit me powerfully as a
college freshman when the humani-
ties were in better shape.
One of the great history teachers in
those days was a University of Chicago
professor named Karl Weintraub. He


poured his soul into transforming
his students' lives, but, even then,
he sometimes wondered if they were
really listening. Late in life, he wrote
a note to my classmate Carol Quillen,
who now helps carry on this legacy as
president of Davidson College.
STeaching Western Civ, Weintraub
wrote, "seems to confront me all too
often with moments when I feel like
screaming suddenly: 'Oh, God, my
dear student, why CANNOT you see
that this matter is a real, real matter,
often a matter of the very being, for
the person, for the historical men and
women you are looking at or are
supposed to be looking at!' "I hear
these answers and statements that
sound like mere words, mere verbal
formulations to me, but that do
not have the sense of pain or joy or
accomplishment or worry about them
that they ought to have if they were
TRULY informed by the live problems
and situations of the human beings
back there for whom these matters
were real. The way these disembod-
ied words come forth can make me
cry, and the failure of the speaker to


probe for the open wounds and such
behind the text makes me increas-
ingly furious.
"If I do not come to feel any of the
love which Pericles feels for his city,
how can I understand the Funeral
Oration? If I cannot fathom anything
of the power of the drive derived from
thinking that he has a special mission,
what can I understand of Socrates?
... How can one grasp anything about
the problem of the Galatian commu-
nity without sensing in one's bones
the problem of worrying about God's
acceptance? Sometimes when I have
spent an hour or more, pouring all
my enthusiasm and sensitivities into
an effort to tell these stories in the
fullness in which I see and experience
them, I feel drained and exhausted. I
think it works on the student, but I do
not really know."
Teachers like that were zealous for
the humanities. A few years in that
company leaves a lifelong mark.

For the immoralists, love is doing
whatever feels good for the moment,
regardless of the tragic consequences.
For those who follow God's example, love
is doing what is best for others, regard-
less of the cost.
By ignoring God and endorsing
immorality, America has increased our
woes and has often made us blind to
the intention of our foes. Repentance
submits to God and acknowledges, "My
immorality is wrong, your morality is
right."
Some two thousand years ago, there
stood three crosses. Two were for thieves.
One thief repented, and one perished.
The perfect Person on the third cross
gives us an opportunity to repent and
live eternally If not, we perish.

Jaroszeski learning


about Washington


The 2012-13 academic school year is
history. But during the summer, some
Polk County Public Schools' history
teachers are preparing for next year by
taking advantage of opportunities for
professional development, including
one from Frostproof.
Deanna Jaroszeski from Frostproof
Middle-Senior will attend the George
Washington's Teachers Institute located
in MountVernon with the help of a grant
from the organization.
The competitive program, scheduled
to begin in July, brings together teachers
from across the country for a history
immersion program that explores the
presidency of George Washington,
the history of government in the 18th
century, and how to integrate history into
English, Science, Math and Geography
curricula.
Marcia Baali who attends Gause
Academy will be in attendance to learn
about history and culture that created
the colonial city of St. Augustine and
to explore why the historic city is often
overlooked in the study of U.S. colonial
history. And, Bartow International
Bacalaurete history teacher Ted Wright is
currently in Iran to learn about Middle
Eastern culture and history.
This comes through fellowships
and grants. Some are using their


own personal finances to spend time
enhancing their knowledge.
Other examples include Elizabeth
Rasmussen from Fort Meade Middle-
Senior is the recipient of the James
Madison Memorial Fellowship.
Each year, the foundation based in
Alexandria, Va., chooses 56 recipients
from across the country. The fellowship,
named after the fourth president of
the United States, funds up to $24,000
of each fellow's coursework towards a
master's degree. Rasmussen is pursuing
a master's degree in curriculum and
instruction-secondary education with
a concentration in social studies at the
University of South Florida.
Stacy Moser from Lakeland High and
Michelle Hubenschmidt from Mulberry
High were selected by the Society of the
Cincinnati are attending the second
Master Teachers Program. The program,
takes place in Washington, D.C., and
teaches about the American Revolution
through the experiences of those who
fought the war.

Transportation tax back on county ballot


If voters approve, surcharge will replace one mill currently assessed property owners


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

In a unanimous vote last week with
no discussion among themselves, Polk
County Commissioners have approved
a resolution that will place on the 2014
November ballot a referendum seeking
approval of a one cent regional trans-
portation system surtax.
However, while commissioners did
not deliberate the proposal, it did
not go unopposed by several in the
audience.
Deputy County Attorney Linda
McKinley explained that if approved,
the extra penny would be split, with
one half toward a county-wide bus
system, and the other half to be used
for the development of, construction,
operation and maintenance of roads
and bridges in the county.
The proposal contained a second
part. Beginning in fiscal year 2015-16,
the county would no longer levy the
one mill for roads it currently charges
homeowners; that 1 mill has been in
place since 2005.
Similar transportation tax resolutions
on the ballot have failed twice before.


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
Opinion is divided whether passage
of the resolution in 2014 seeking voter
approval of a one cent Charter County
and Regional Transportation System
surtax will benefit homeowners.
Under the current method, property
owners are being assessed one mill to
cover Polk County transportation costs.
The revenues budgeted for this current
fiscal year, according to Todd Bond,
Budget and Management Services
Director, is between $22-$23 million.
Should the referendum, which will be
on the November 2014 ballot, win voter
approval, Bond said it could generate
between $64-66 million, according to a
Polk State College study.
However, approval may prove to be
a negative to homeowners. Currently,
homeowners in unincorporated areas of
the county pay $62 per year on aver-
age. If the switch is made to a sale tax,
homeowners may end up paying more.
Bond said he based his figures on
the IRS national standard of a family of
three with an income between $40-
$50,000. Because the proposed surtax is
divided into a half-cent going to mass


Fort Meade has one county bus route
that services the city, running here six
times each day, and three times on
Saturday. There is no Sunday service.
Cost for a one-way ride is $1.50, and
riders may transfer to other buses in
Bartow to reach other destinations in
the county.
Board Chairwoman Melony Bell an-
nounced that the public could respond
after the presentation.
Two people spoke against the
transportation surtax. One of them was
Dan Frodge, of Alturas, who owns and
operates Frodge Engineering PA., who
stated he strongly opposed all of the
proposed tax increases. He challenged
commissioners on both mass transit
and road infrastructure.
"Has there been any study as to
the cost effectiveness of the present
program? What is the current rider-
ship?" Frodge demanded regarding
mass transportation. He added that
the government fosters an entitlement
mentality. "Are we too quick to inter-
vene where the family, the extended
family or church should be involved?"
Frodge questioned the need for a
half-cent for road maintenance.


transit and the other half-cent to be
used on roads and bridges, the actual
cost to homeowners may double when
the half cents are totaled together, to
possibly as high as $116.
That may not necessarily be so, said
Tom Phillips, executive director of
Lakeland Area Mass Transit. The differ-
ence, he said, is the data used. While
Bonds used an IRS template, Phillips
said he used "Polk-centric" data, which
he termed a more accurate measure.
That template, he said, takes into
consideration more variables. Because
the proposed sales tax is a consump-
tion tax, savings would vary. However,
on average, he said, homeowners
could realize at least a $62 reduction
in their tax bill in unincorporated Polk
County. Phillips did add that was not
a guarantee. Depending upon income
and variables such as the value of one's
home (as per the assessment from
Marsha Faux's Property Tax Assessor
Office) car payments, etc., it was pos-
sible some homeowners will actually
end up paying more once a surtax is
in place (if it wins voter approval) than
they now pay.
That was the one thing on which he
and Bond both agree, Phillips said.


"What scrutiny has been exercised
to determine if the current staff,
equipment, materials and supervision
are being effectively used?" he asked.
"Why is it that the knee-jerk reaction
of government leaders is always to
raise taxes?" As he continued, Frodge
wanted to know whether any com-
missioners had actually gone to road
construction sites and observed the
performance of both supervisors and
workers while on the job. Only Bell
indicated she had, and was thanked
by Frodge. "I think it's important to get
your feet on the ground and see what's
happening."
Carol Castagnero also spoke in
opposition, but hers was a qualified re-
sistance. While she opposed the idea of
a surcharge, stating the residents were
being asked to pay for "their" (Polk
Transit's) business, she could support
the surcharge provided it addressed
a segment of the population whose
needs, she said, were going unmet.
It would be of great benefit in Polk
Transit for people who hold second
and third-shift jobs.
"They can't get to their jobs," said
Castagnero. She added this was a con-
stant complaint she frequently heard.
Mild applause followed her remarks.
In response, Tom Phillips, execu-
tive director of Lakeland Area Mass
Transit (which is a district in the Citrus
Connection), addressed some of the
challenges, assumptions and questions
raised.
Over the past year, more than 10,000
residents had been asked what good


quality transit looked like to them.
This was done through 31 listening
sessions over 60 days. They met in
people's homes, coffee shops, grocery
store aisles and other public hearings.
The result was to develop a "tailored
transportation solution" that would
meet the needs of each of the 17
municipalities in Polk County, as well
as Poinciana and unincorporated areas
of the county.
"We do believe in being good
stewards of the taxpayer dollars, and I
believe over the last year we've shown
that. Ridership is up 27.8 percent,"
he said, indicating there have been
over 25,000 more rides per month
this year than a year ago. "During
that time we were able to decrease
our costs8.6 percent, which returned
$100,000 to the Board of County
Commissioners."
That money, he pointed out, went
to the six communities involved with.
mass transit as refunds.
While acknowledging shortcomings
in providing transportation for second-
and third-shift workers, there were
alternatives that had been worked out,
such as a program named My Ride,
which contracts with taxicab compa-
nies. There also were eight private/
public partnerships, in which busi-
nesses and certain public organiza-
tions mostly colleges subsidized
rides for employees or students. In
an arrangement with Legoland, for
example, nearly 1,600 employees take
mass transit. It has led from 64 rides
per month to over 1,800 rides.

New MSTU tax OK'd by BOCC


By-STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM

In the recent past, commission-
ers from several municipalities have
witnessed vociferous opposition to
proposed stormwater fees imposi-
tions. That was not the situation at
the Tuesday, June 19 afternoon public
hearing session of the Polk County
Commissioners regular agenda.
Turnout was sparse by the time item
21 on the Public Hearings section of
the afternoon BOCC agenda the
creation of a "Municipal Service Taxing
Unit (MTSU) to fund a Comprehensive
Stormwater Management Program
starting with Tax Year 2013" ap-
peared before the BOCC. In fact, more
people spoke on the issue during the
morning session, with several of them
identifying themselves as members
of the 9-12 tea party from various
communities.
Speaking for himself, Dan Frodge, of
Alturas, who has his own firm, Frodge
Engineering PA., derided the BOCC.
"What assurances do the citizens of
Polk County have that there will be any
improvement in water quality in our
lakes after spending millions of hard
earned dollars?" said Frodge. "Have
you forgotten that practically every
lake in this county has and will always
have high levels of phosphate that is
endemic to this region?"
Frodge reminded commissioners
what occurred in 2012, when the then
BOCC tried to assess a fee which
Frodge said was actually a tax and
tried to base it on a concept that not


only was unworkable, but which he
said was grossly unfair. That fee would
have been based upon the square
footage of impervious surfaces, such
as roofs and driveways that might
contribute to storm water runoff. In his
particular situation, his property slopes
away from the roadway, so any runoff
goes into either his grove, yard or pond.
In his instance, he rhetorically asked,
why should he pay a tax.
"To be honest, this is and always
has been simply another effort to raise
additional funds for Polk County to be
used at the discretion of county admin-
istrators," said Frodge. "And that, ladies
and gentlemen, is unacceptable."
Del Lawson was further strident in his
comments. He told commissioners his
father was a long-time mayor of a small
town in the Florida Panhandle. His
father had an expression Lawson said he
never understood but got the gist: "Take
a flying leap off a rolling donut."
Lawson termed the entire matter a
grab for both power and money on the
part of one particular agency.
"The EPA is totally using this to have
more control over our properties," he:
said. He then asked what would be the
next step? Individual test kits to test the
ground to make sure it meets EPA crite-
ria. "And if it doesn't, we get fined, have
to clean the level of phosphates down
to a ridiculous level that we'll never,
ever meet? And be fined constantly?
"This is a money stream and what all of
this money is going to be used for, we
have no real, true idea."
Lawson urged the BOCC to resist.
Don't pay fines. If ordered to court,


don't attend. If about to be arrested,
contact him and other people he
knows. They will go to the sheriff's
office and voluntarily turn themselves
in, but not quietly They will contact the
press, TV, bloggers and anybody else
they can think of.
"We will cause such a stink that I
think they might want to back off," said
Lawson. His remarks drew a round of
applause.
When the BOCC reconvened for the
afternoon session, they faced a large
audience. However, the majority of
people there were present because of a
proposed Racetrac convenience station
to be built on County Road 540A near
an area that contains several upscale
neighborhoods. After that issue was
heard, the chamber became practically
empty, and only one person from the
public addressed the BOCC on the
proposed storm water MSTU.
At the end of public comments,
Commissioner John Hall took the op-
portunity to speak.
"Everything we've heard today, this is
the one I feel most conflicted over," he
said, adding he had received a number
of calls from people, including friends
who are in agriculture as cattle ranch-
ers. "I have a little bit of concern over
this one."
Regardless, Hall felt it necessary to
point out that the action the BOCC is
taking is not an actual vote on a tax,
only if it want to determine within the
next 21/2 months whether it wants to
impose a tax that can be anywhere
from zero to 1.37. Commissioner
George Lindsey carried that further.


"This was not the tax proposed
21/2 years ago," he said. That proposal,
which failed, was based on a set of
factors ultimately rejected. "What we've
done in this case is provide a mecha-
nism. It simply gives seed money to do
the legwork."
Lindsey also said that the issue was
not the BOCC's doing, but that it was
imposed upon them by the state and
federal government, and that the BOCC
had no choice but to comply.
The vote was unanimous to proceed
forward and create a potential tax-
ing district regarding how to handle
stormwater runoff. How much to levy
will be determined during the Sept. 5
and Sept. 12 budget hearings.

About the issue
The EPA has determined a substan-
tial number of water bodies in the
county do not rise up to the level of
water standards predeterminedPart
of the problem stems from storm-
water runoff, some which contains
phosphates.
Instead of using a measurement
based on impervious surfaces such
as roofs, driveways and parking lots -
which do not absorb stormwater, a fee
structure is being considered. That fee,
that might range as high as 10 cents
per $1,000 of taxable land value, will
be the measurement. As an example,
a home valued at $100,000 that has a
$50,000 homestead exemption would
be assessed on the remaining value
of $50,000. That means a homeowner
would pay $5 per year on the MSTU.

Tennessee o"r.- now-. :r# ..


Although he'll only be a junior this year, Frostproof Bulldog Cecil Cherry, who has played varsity
football since the eighth grade, has mad verbal comittment to attend Tennessee after making a
visit there earlier this month. He would be part of the Volunteers Class of 2015, but the comitt-
ment is verbal only and non-binding.

Although Cherry often plays on both sides of the ball, he is a big, powerful fullback on offense, he
is expected to make his mark in college on defense. He is already considered one of the county's
hardest hitting linebackers, and had 118 tackles as a sophomore. Recent published reports say
Cherry has verbally committed to attend Tennessee, although he has two years of high school ball

Beth Saylor celebrated almost
nine months free of drugs last week.
The 48 year-old Polk County
resident graduated from the Leland
Family Ministries addiction recov-
ery program in Bartow on Thursday
and is living a much different life
now than she was a year ago.
"I did cocaine before meth, I've
been doing drugs since I was 13.
I didn't know what a normal life
was or how to have a day without
drugs," said Saylor who started
using methamphetamine when she
was 33.
Though Saylor described her
upbringing as "dysfunctional," with
an alcoholic father and being
a victim of childhood abuse, addic-
tion is rampant in all communities
and types of individuals.
"Every meth addict story is
different," said Libbie Combee,
executive director of Leland Family
Ministries. "Because of lack of
education, people have this stigma,
like 'Oh you have to be homeless or
in jail'," added Combee, who started
using drugs when she was 13 and
used meth for the last 10 years of
her addiction.
Polk County is historically an area
ridden with alarming meth usage
statistics. In February 2013, the Polk
County Sheriff's Office reported 53
pounds of methamphetamine "Ice"
seized and 42 methamphetamine
related arrests. However, Combee
is careful to point out that these
statistics do not necessarily por-
'tray an accurate picture ofPolk's-

methamphetamine problem.
"(Those statistics) are possession,
not the ones that were eating it
when the cop was walking up to the
door," said Combee. Additionally,
many methamphetamine posses-
sions go unreported.
"I did meth for 10 years and
worked for one of the largest com-
panies in the state of Florida," said
Combee. As a successful corporate
employee, Combee did not think
she had a drug problem. Her col-
leagues used meth and other drugs,
as did her family.
"I became a very functional mem-
ber of society but I used meth every
day," said Combee.
"It's everywhere. Your neighbors.
You would be surprised by the
business people using it.
Everybody's using it. I know lawyers
that are using it," said Saylor of
the misconception that addiction
only hits a certain type of family or
individual.
Now drug free and on a mission
to help others with addictions,
Combee is hosting a Lunch n' Learn
event titled, "Methamphetamine:


A National Epidemic." The goal of
the event is to educate the com-
munity about the realities of drug
use. All are welcome and a com-
plimentary lunch will be provided.
The Lunch n' Learn is from 11:30
a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, July 12 at the
Leland Family Ministries Recovery
Resource Center in Bartow, at 780
W. Main St.
Combee believes education is
the key to helping a loved one with
addiction.
"I meet a lot of families that want
to rescue. They just want to fix it
and they can't," said Combee who
encourages families to let an out-
side mentor guide their loved ones
through the recovery process.
Combee said methamphetamines
has a 98 percent addiction rate and
a 92 percent relapse rate.
She referred to the recovery pro-
cess as a "relapse roller coaster" due
to the fact that


methamphetamine destroys the
receptors in the brain with the
dopamine that controls emotions
and cravings.
"It takes 12-24 months for those
receptors to be restored. That's why
I kept relapsing. No one ever told
me that. I was so frustrated and
mad at myself," said Combee of the
discouragement she faced while in
recovery.
Addiction recovery resources have
become increasingly widespread
and Combee hoped that with time
more communities will continue to
support these efforts.
For Saylor, fulfillment came when
she restored the relationships with
her children. While living the life of
an addict, Saylor's oldest son did not
speak to her and referred to her as
Beth instead of Mom.
"Being able to look at my children
and have their love back is worth it
all," said Saylor.

Reptiles and readers

Latt Maxcy Library .

K.M. THORTON SR.


John Storms and his World of Reptiles show is always a crowd pleaser, and it was no exception
June 10 when the slimy, slippery and cold-blooded show made a stop at the Latt Maxcy Memorial
Library in Frostproof. Librarian Missy Hadden reported that almost 200 kids and family members
showed up for the fun.


No handlers or animals were harmed in the taking of this picture, we promise. But it's quite a site
indeed to see Jesse, a python, and John Storms interact. Jesse weighs about 150 pounds and is 15
feet long. He's about 10 years old, and, we guess, lovable, just not cuddly.

- County seeks 'vision' for growing arts offerings


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS.COM
The arts are alive and well in Polk
County; in fact, thriving. That's the
good news. The challenge is not only
getting the word out, but getting
individuals, families and businesses
to incorporate the arts into their lives
and structures.
How to do so was the main ques-
tion raised at the first Polk Vision
program, LEAD (Learn, Engage,
Assess, Discuss), which took place
Tuesday, June 18 at the Polk Museum
of Art in Lakeland. The forum, said
moderator and PolkVision executive
director Sara Roberts, arose from a
survey taken of Polk Vision members
and other related groups.
"The arts was at the top of the list,"
said Roberts.
For the sake of discussion, Roberts
would soon add, the forum would
center solely around the visual arts.
To address that, six members from
various arts organizations sat on
the panel and included:. Meri Mass,
executive director of the Polk Arts
Alliance; Osubi Craig, director of
Polk State College's Lake Wales Arts
Center; Barbara Connor, president
of the Lake Wales Arts Council;
Patricia Lamb, art coordinator for
Polk County Public Schools; Jane
Waters-Thomas, president of the Arts
Ensemble; and Claire Orologas, ex-
ecutive director of the Polk Museum
of Art.
Mass said that when she first
moved to Polk County six years ago
she had no knowledge what was
available.
"It's the best kept secret," Mass
said, but not one she wanted to
remain secret. Needed was getting
word out about the high quality of art
to be found in the county.
Craig, who mentioned he had only
been in Polk County 33 days also ...
expressed astonishment.
"I am surprised at what is avail-
able," said Craig, adding he was
encouraged by the support of all the
arts.
Connor, who at one time was a part
of the museum staff had a different
take on the question.
"It's a real serious endeavor to have
the arts a part of every day life," she
said. "People are realizing people are
hungry for the arts."
S Children, according to Lamb, are
the linchpin. In every school there is
an art and a music teacher, she said.
She then took the time to point out
how The Harrison School of the Arts
has repeatedly been cited as one of
the top schools in Florida and the
U.S. Its relevance cannot be denied.
"Creativity is the currency our

children have to offer as they go into
the world," she said.
Art is an equalizer, according to
Waters-Thomas.
"It crosses all divides," she said.
"Art touches every life. It builds
bridges." She added she was par-
ticularly excited about the growing
involvement of local government.
Enthusiasm for the arts is simmer-
ing, said Orologas, who related it to
outreaches to the business commu-
nity and getting exposure to the arts
in the workplace.
"It's fun to see the arts enter into
their consciousness," Orologas said.
"People are realizing how important
arts is to raise the quality of life."
When it came to shortcomings,
Orologas said one of the problems
was a lack of partnering with one
another, although that is slowly
changing. Another gap was a lack of
awareness.
"A number of people are 'aware,'
but not really," she said. The impres-
sion left was while people are aware,
there is a lack of understanding.. 1
Waters-Thomas said families need
to be educated, so they will not be in-
timidated or afraid to go to a museum.
This theme was built upon by Lamb
who said many people do not believe
the arts are for them. Word needs to
get out that proves the opposite.
"It doesn't take special knowledge,
it just takes enjoyment," said Lamb.
Connor re-iterated Lamb.
From Craig's perspective, the main
shortcoming was developing new
audiences. He rhetorically asked how
does one connect the museum expe-
rience to today's technology, and how
are diverse target markets reached?
"How do we get the kids to get the
parents to come to the museum?"
Craig asked. "How do I get the foot-
ball and beer crowd?"
He then told of a college alumni

friend who arranged a performance by
the Philadelphia Ballet in which coach-
es and players from the Philadelphia
Eagles were included. The performance
was a sellout.
Each panelist also spoke of the vari-
ous approaches the organization they
head up takes and has taken up. Those
included talking to politicians; getting
businesses engaged by framing things
with an eye toward economic impact;
putting together a successful series of
programs.
Projects between the arts and the
schools included the CHART program,
in which Waters-Thomas sends an art
professional to the charter schools.
Another program was All Kids Read. In
that program, second grade students all
read the same book. Later, they viewed
a performance of the book by actors.
Integrating the arts into the every day
curriculum was being studied.

"How do you teach chemistry through
dance," asked Craig, who answered his
own question. "Cross teach. Give teach-
ers a different set of tools. Integration,
instead of 'in addition to.'"
Drawbacks acknowledged the lack of
staff and resources; fighting the urge
to get "territorial;" transportation and
the size of the county which is larger
than the state of Rhode Island; the
belief people have that their museum is
not really theirs.
For her part and that of Polk Vision,
Roberts was pleased with the event.
"I think the main achievement was
the beginning of a dialogue," she said.
She would add the hope that this first
gathering would serve as a catalyst for
future conversation among the various
art organizations, and that word spread
beyond just the past meeting. "Our
county has a quality arts program that
our citizens need to know."

More sour news[


By RICHARD MARINI
SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS NEWS

Funny how often science discovers
things it didn't know it was looking for.
Twenty years ago, Canadian re-
searcher David Bailey was preparing
to study alcohol's effect on the blood
pressure medicine felodipine. To
properly "blind" participants, Bailey
and his wife rummaged through their
fridge looking for something that
would mask the taste of the alcohol.
They settled on grapefruit juice.
Once the study began, however,
Bailey was surprised to discover
concentrations of felodipine in the
volunteers' blood were many times
higher than expected. Suspecting
the grapefruit juice was somehow
to blame (and in a decision either
brave or foolhardy), Bailey tested his
hypothesis by running an experiment
with a single subject: himself.
His study, published in the medi-
cal journal The Lancet in 1991, has
since been replicated many times and
today, grapefruit's ability to cause pre-
scription drugs to build up in the body
is a medical fact. It happens because
substances in grapefruit juice disrupt
enzymes in the body that metabolize,
or break down, drugs. Without the
enzyme, the drug keeps accumulating,
sometimes to dangerous levels.
Bailey, today a senior scientist at
Lawson Health Research Institute in
London, Ontario, recently published
a follow-up article in the Canadian
Medical Association Journal warning
that as' iew'drugs are introduced,
the number that may interact with
grapefruit juice is skyrocketing. In
2008 there were 17 drugs that Bailey
calls "worrisome." Today there are 44,
an average of about six new drugs a
year.
"Taking these prescription drugs


with grapefruit juice is like taking
several tablets at once," says Bailey,
adding that this is perhaps the most
profound food-drug interaction
known. (Other citrus fruits that can
have the same effect include Seville
oranges, pomelos and limes.)
Depending on the drug, side effects
can include gastrointestinal bleeding,
a heart rhythm disruption that goes by
the pleasant-sounding name torsade
de points, abnormally low blood
pressure and sudden cardiac death.
And it doesn't take much. Drinking
as little as 6 to 7 ounces of grapefruit
juice can hamper drug metabolism for
as long as 72 hours.
At greatest risk? The elderly, who
tend to take more prescription drugs
and, yes, consume more grapefruit.
While computer programs help alert
physicians and pharmacists about
drug-on-drug interactions, preventing
food-drug interactions is trickier.
"Adding a question, about grapefruit
juice to a patient's pharmaceuti-
cal profile is certainly something
worthy of consideration," says Oralia
Bazaldua, a pharmacist with the
University of Texas Health Science
Center. "We shouldn't scare people,
but we should make them more aware
of the problem."
Bailey doesn't prescribe an across-
the-board prohibition of grapefruit.
Instead, he's developed a list of alter-
native drugs that don't interact with
grapefruit juice. Patients can discuss
these with their doctor. You can find
the list here: http://bit.ly/So0w8c.
It may sound scary, but it's better to
know you're at risk. While researching
this column I discovered the simvas-
tatin I take for high cholesterol can
cause kidney failure when combined
with grapefruit juice. My doctor never
mentioned a thing.

not hesitate to take action, "I raced for the gun vault and had my gun in my hand in five seconds,..."he
explained. Fugate ordered the intruders not to move and to keep their hands up. While Fugate held the
intruders at gunpoint, his brother was able to call police.There were no serious injuries reported. Matt
Fugate later commented on the ordeal, "I was scared and angry... [but] I'm relieved that nothing bad
came of it... that it ended the way it did, peacefully"' (TheBlaze.com, Evansville, IN, 4/27/13)

Please respect wildlife


Florida is blessed with a large native
population of wild birds, and even
more that are migratory, coming to us
in the fall to feed and breed away from
the stress of winter.
The United States Department of the
Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service has
some specific rules relating to the care
of injured or orphaned wildlife (birds).
It is AGAINST THE LAW to keep wild
birds as pets.
The FWS has licensed trained
rehabilataters that can house, feed and
cared for orphaned or injured birds.
Every spring and summer our hos-
pital receives many birds. The FWS
rules state that we have 90 days to try
to rehabilitate them for release back
to the wild... some cases may take
longer, and extensions can be attained.
Because it is unlawful to keep wild
birds captive, the choice is to euthanize
un-releasable birds and treat the ones
we can rehab for release. Unfortunately


Thomas B. Schotman






the most common "injury" to birds is
due to altercation with a car resulting in
serious fractures. I have repaired some
with a great feeling of accomplishment
when they are released. Most wing and
leg fractures are severe enough to justify
euthanization.
Every year we have many juvenile
birds that are dropped off, having been
found on the ground beneath the tree/
nest. Blue jays, mockingbirds, doves
and more are included.
While it is possible to feed/care for


these teenagers, it is best if they are
cared for by their parents. Usually these
birds are just learning to fly and fall off
or are blown off of the edge of the nest.
The best thing to do is to try to
replace them in the nest. If that is not
an option, call the State of Florida, Fish
and Wildlife Commission for advice as
to find a rehabilataters. Injured birds
should be transported to a local veteri-
narian or a rehabber for care.
Remember that it is illegal to posses

pretty cool to see but this
animal and all wild birds are
illegal to own.










wild birds (Migratory Bird Act), but the
Game and Fish agents are usually OK
with transport to the veterinarian or
rehabber.
A reminder about Sand Hill Cranes
... it is against the law to feed these
wonderful birds. I have had to eutha-
nize too many due to mis-nutrition
(corn is not a balanced diet) and car
injuries because the birds are not afraid
of people/cars.
Please respect wildlife.

Month brings awareness to animal shel-
ters across the U.S. that are inundated
with kittens, the result of felines produc-
ing more litters beginning in the spring
and peaking in summer. In addition
to the adoption special, SPCA Florida
is addressing feline overpopulation by
offering $25 off spays and neuters at the
McClurg Animal Medical Center and im-
plementing a multi-faceted Community
Cat Program, which includes free neuter
surgeries and vaccinations for free-
roaming, un-owned cats.
"We encourage the public to become
involved with the welfare and well-
being of animals in the community,"
said SPCA Florida CEO Sean Hawkins.
"Whether you adopt a new feline family
member, open your home as a kitten
foster parent, or bring your neighbor-
hood cats in to our stateof-the-art
medical center for surgery to prevent
future litters, we need your support to
end cat overpopulation in Polk County,"
Hawkins said.

FEELING


Being a caregiver a daunting challenge


Doctor claims senior citizens an unappreciated treasure


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER @ HEARTLANDNEWSPAPERS .COM
Dr. Jamie Huysman had one question of
Bartow Kiwanis Club members and guests
on Friday, June 21, when he appeared
before them as one of two guest speak-
ers; the other speaker being Dr. Alicia
Saunders, who Huysman would later
introduce. He wanted to know whether
they knew the correct definition of what a
caregiver is. His answer, while humorous,
underscored a serious concern.
'A caregiver," said Huysman, "is some-
one who jumps off a cliff and someone
else's life passes before their eyes."
Becoming the caregiver for a loved
one is a drastic undertaking, according
to Huysman, and one of the pitfalls he
pointed out was that often the caregiver
neglects to take care of the caregiver.
"The first thing I tell caregivers is, 'Take
Your Oxygen First,'" said Huysman, who
has co-authored with Dr. Rosemary
Laird a book by that title. It comes from
instructions when traveling by jet. Should
there be a sudden loss of pressure, oxygen
masks drop. The instruction never varies:
Place the oxygen mask on one's self first
before placing it on another person, often
that of a child. "You only have about


19 seconds to put your mask on first:" He
concluded that topic urging his audience
to do whatever they find energizing.
Huysman also touched upon the fact
the same problems a loved one has can
often be faced by the caregiver. This was
not limited to the actual physical condi-
tion the loved one is undergoing, but also
the mental and emotional aspects. It was
part of what he termed the three new
values senior citizens have before them:
Being, belonging and becoming.
Having already touched upon being, he
turned his direction to belonging. There is,
he said, a community, and one should be
active within it; to rely upon it as a source
of a certain sustenance.
"One of the worst things is isolation.
It's a cancer of the soul," Huysman said-
"Don't become detached from people."
With that, Huysman lauded organizations
such as Kiwanis.
"Kiwanis symbolizes to me a 'family of
choice.'"
Family, he said, is very important,
especially when it involves senior citizens.
Although he began his medical career
in pediatrics, he eventually shifted to
geriatric care. He said that seniors are a
great source of knowledge and wisdom,
which is not appreciated in the U.S., as it


is in other countries.
"We in America have a lot to learn from
that'family,'" he said.
Huysman used the topic of becoming
as away to introduce Saunders. Health
care, he said is changing. Regardless
of age, both people and the medical
establishment have become more health
conscious. It has shifted from "disease
consciousness" to "wellness and preven-
tion consciousness." It was part of the
reason he became involved with WellMed,
based in Texas, which began 21 years ago'
and arrived in Florida three years ago.
'All health care is local," he said. In his
capacity as vice president ofWellMed-
Florida (which is headquartered in
Orlando), Huysman has been charged
with identifying doctors who fit the profile
ofWellMed. "I've met very few doctors
who'get it.'"
One of them, he said, is Saunders, with
Bartow Medical Clinic. That she is in
Bartow, he said, is striking.
"When you come to a small town,
you're not going to find greatness too of-
ten," he said. Saunders is that one person.
Huysman made no bones about how
impressed he is with Saunders and has
often said he wants to be present when
any group or organization does anything


Dr. Alicia Saunders explains to members
and guests of the Bartow Kiwanis Club the
philosophy of WellMed. Saunders is the doctor
for the organization who represents Bartow.
involving Saunders. "If I could bottle her
and take her all over to medical clinics in
Florida, I would."
Saunders was very low key when
introduced, in contrast to the loquacious
Huysman. Rather than talk about herself,
she focused her few comments on how
the arrival ofWellMed will be of benefit to
residents of Bartow and the surrounding
community.


Stefanie Thompson was promoted
to Director of Early Stage Programs at
the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter of the
Alzheimer's Association.
Thompson, a native of Dayton,
Ohio, will take her passion for per-
sons in the early stage of Alzheimer's
disease or a related dementia and
develop chapter-wide programs that
will provide education, resources,
and support to individuals who are
affected by the disease.
In addition, Thompson will
continue her exceptional work as
a Senior Program Specialist with
the Alzheimer's Association in Polk
County.
The Florida Gulf Coast Chapter
serves 17 Florida counties from Citrus
County to Collier, where there are
more than 172,000 people who are
estimated to be living with Alzheimer's
disease.
"It is an exciting time for our
Chapter as we venture into this


new territory," said Lisa Milne, Vice
President of Programs. "Stefanie, with
her leadership skills, will develop
more innovative and evidence based
programs that will enhance the
wonderful programs we continue to
provide to our families."
"Early stage" refers to people who
are diagnosed with Alzheimer's
disease or related disorders and are
in the beginning stages of the disease.
In this stage, they retain the ability to
participate in daily activities and in a
give-and-take dialogue. "A diagnosis
of Alzheimer's disease can leave a
person with the perception of feeling
disconnected, isolated, abandoned
and unsure of how to respond and
where to turn to next," said Gloria J.
T. Smith, President & CEO, Florida
Gulf Coast Chapter. "Whenever facing
difficult times, having a good support
network and supportive programs can
give the newly diagnosed individual a
sense of belonging and purpose."

fr.@ ,, A,'eaty

Buying a home is one of the biggest
decisions that you will ever make. It is
important to take this decision serious-
ly. You need to take the time prepare
yourself in every aspect in order to
make buying your home a success,
and not a negative experience. Here
are some basic steps that you should
follow when it is time to buy a home.
1. First you should determine if you
are ready to buy a home.
Home ownership is more expensive
than renting. You are responsible for
paying for all the repairs. You may
also have added utility costs, such
as garbage and water. In addition to
that you will need to pay for taxes and
