Internet Tax sale is a hit
For the first time in county his-
tory, Polk's public tax certificate
sale was conducted entirely on
the Internet. And, with over 7.6
million 'hits' on the ebay style
website, this year's sale was, by
all accounts, a success.
"We couldn't be more
pleased with the overall results of
this sale," Tax Collector Joe Ted-
der stated, at the conclusion of a
3-day meeting of the Florida Tax
Collector's Association spring
The annual sale was conduct-
ed on May 31st of this year, sell-
ing 15,460 tax certificates at a
value of $12.68 million dollars,
reported Bid4Assets, the online
auction firm who conducted the
sale. This figure represents 96%
of the total property value
offered, and 78% of the total
parcels, up from 66% last year, a
significant 12% increase in one
year. The remaining 4565 parcels
that were not bid, totaled
$436,546, were struck off to the
Every year, in an attempt to
collect unpaid property taxes,
Florida counties auction off thou-
sands of tax certificates. This
year, however, instead of spend-
ing two weeks in a live auction
setting, Joe Tedder, Polk County
Tax Collector and his staff decid-
ed to lead a trend, that involved 'a
whole lot less shouting' but drew
a great deal of interest among
investors. In years past, the live
auction drew approximately 125
local participants and, according
to Asst. Tax Collector Jack Fouts,
"was your typical auction, with
lots of hollering back and forth.
You're trying to figure out who
yelled out the bid first."

Last year was the first time
this online approach was taken
by only four Florida counties.
Throughout the process, Lien-
Pro, Bid4Asset's online service
was also able to provide valuable
statistical analysis unique to each
county. Those statistics reported
a field of potential bidders from
37 states throughout the country,
registering 1619 unique partici-
pants with more than 1350 actual
In November of 2004, Mana-
tron, a national leader in special-
ized tax software, and provider to
the local tax office, announced a
partnership with Bid4Assets, to
deliver Internet tax sale function-
ality to the Florida market. They
conducted sales for seven ,of the
22 counties who held Internet
sales this year. Due to the suc-
cesses throughout the state, the
industry is projecting as many as
40 counties may be involved next
Tedder said the Internet firm
collected a fee for each transac-
tion but charged the county noth-
ing. Yet, the benefit to delinquent
taxpayers was just as favorable,
with 92% of the certificates sold'
at .25% interest rate. Auction bid-
ding starts at 18 percent interest
and proceeds downward. This
year's average percentage win-
ning bid rate was 5.50%.
"It's a benefit to everyone. We
strike off less parcels to the coun-
ty," Tedder shared, "and the tax-
payer benefits because the more
bidders we attract, the lower the
The life of a tax certificate is
seven years. After that, the certifi-
cate becomes null and void.
Tax certificate investors gener-
ally expect delinquent tax
account holders to pay their
delinquent back taxes plus inter-
est.- If the delinquent account
holder does not pay after two
years, the certificate investor can
assume all the outstanding real
estate property taxes due on the
property in question and apply
for a tax deed. This allows the
property to be sold at auction
where the investor may recoup
some or all of the return on their
investment. Jack Fouts, a 33-year
employee with the tax office,
reminisced that the live auction
traditionally ties up at least 10
employees for two weeks. This
year, that labor-intensive period
lasted just one day and required
only a few staff members. A jubi-
lant Fouts noted, "We have saved
a lot of man-hours."

Stunners play at Wide World of Sports
On Thursday, June 16th, the
Stunners 18 and under travel
softball team, traveled to Dis-
ney's Wide World of Sports.
The team played in Disney's
Super Southern Summit. This
was the first tournament the
team has played in. There are a
lot of new faces on the team, as
well as a new coaching staff.
The team played Thursday and
suffered their first defeat from
the Georgia Rockers. But that
did not stop the ladies from
playing their hearts out on Sat-
urday the 18th. They played
three back to back games. They
played hard against the Sun-
coast Outlaws and won their
first game. Then they played the
Palm Beach Cool, which gave
the ladies their second lost. But,
they had to win their third game
to be allowed to come back on
Sunday and play. Which they
did. The ladies won over the vis-
iting Colorado Bulldogs. When
Saturday's games were over the
team had six ladies injured.
The Stunners were deter-
mined to play ball on Sunday,
and who did they draw to play
first thing, the Georgia Rockers.
The ladies played hard and won
that game to go on to the cham-
pionship game against the Palm
Beach Cool. The team was run-
ner up over all. Each lady
received a medallion and the
team received a Wide World of
Sports globe. After the game the
ladies were told by the coach of
the Palm Beach Cool, that they
had played a great game and
not to hold their heads down.
He also told the team that sever-
al of the ladies on the Palm
Beach Cool where already col-
lege players. The ladies all had a.
great time and are ready to play
in more tournaments.
If anyone is interested in
making a donation to the team,
you may contact their coach
Melissa Maiel at 863-381-2416.
The team will be holding sever-
al fund raisers to raise money to
travel to all the tournaments
they have lined up. Some of
these tournaments are also col-
lege showcases which could
help them in getting scholar-
ships to play softball after they
graduate high school.

Keep fireworks away from pets
When it comes to fireworks,
animal experts agree on this cardi-
nal rule: keep the booms away
Pets and fireworks don't mix,
period. The possible dangers to the
animal are numerous, plus there's
little doubt that most animals are
bothered if not terrified by the loud
explosions and noises fireworks
"It's not a very wise idea to keep
pets anywhere near where fire-
works are being set off," believes
Dr. John August of Texas A&M Uni-
versity's College of Veterinary Medi-
cine and Biomedical Sciences.
"There are several reasons why
pets and fireworks don't mix. Many
animals are frightened even during
normal occurrences such as thun-
derstorms. It can be a terrible time
for them, and the sounds from fire-
works can cause even greater fear."
Another big reason is that ani-
mals especially dogs can chew
on exploded or unexploded fire-
works and the ingredients in them
are toxic. They can cause severe
stomach and digestive trouble,
possibly even death, if ingested,
August says the loud noises of
fireworks can cause some dogs to
.have seizures, developing into a
life-threatening situation. Some-
times such illnesses as epilepsy can
be triggered by loud explosions, he
Some studies show that animals
frightened by fireworks may start to
shake or tremble. Excessive drool-
ing, barking and howling can also
result from pets being kept too
close to a fireworks show, and
some can lose all bladder control.
August recommends the fol-
Keep pets indoors if fireworks
are being set off nearby. "It's best to
have a TV or radio on because
these are sounds the animal is used

yard, such as a dog house or ani-

If the animal is outdoors, try to
keep it as far away from the fire-
works as possible to prevent it from
being burned. Pet hair can easily
catch fire, he notes, and small grass
fires are not uncommon where
fireworks are set off.
If scared, indoor cats can usually
find a hiding place under a bed or
table, August says. And in severe
cases, pets may have to be sedated
under the supervision of a veteri-
"If sedation has been done in
the past and has worked, it might
be best to continue the practice,"
"But this should only be as a last
resort. A good pet owner will use
some common sense and not let
his or her pet anywhere near fire-
works. The possible dangers to the
pet, not to mention the stress it cre-
ates for the animal, are very real
and pets should not be in the vicini-
ty of exploding fireworks."

The Road to Recovery
begins with Winter Haven Hospital
"Winning" is a common feeling expressed by persons
receiving rehabilitation services. Many of the patients
served at the Joy-Fuller Rehabilitation Center feel they
have won against all odds.
One such patient is Cheryl Wilson, age 42. Ms.
Wilson was involved in a motor vehicle accident
on 2/12/04. She was air lifted to Lakeland
Regional Medical Center where she received her
initial care for a brain injury and many broken
bones. Ms. W\ licn had been in a coma for 7
days before awakening. After approximately 3
weeks, she was transferred to the Joy-Fuller
Rehabilitation Center for her intensive
rciviihli.lnion program, where she states, "it was
heaven." She, like all patients, received an
average of three hours of therapy per day at least
five days per week, and additional therapy
services on the weekend based upon her needs.
,M.mN i of Ms. Wilson's first memories are
cloudy, due to her brain injury, but she recalls
"they were so nice and patient with me. The
staff stayed with me and helped me through each
day, the sitters were great!" Her motivation
accomplish my goal; I graduated from school."
Life is not so simple since her accident. I battle
with short term memory loss and difficulty with
some physical things." "My whole life has
changed, everything I knew. However, change
is good. It woke me up a lot. With
rehabilitation I learned resources to help me get
through each day, Ultimately I won."
Serving our community is our WINNING
GOAL! During the fiscal year September
2003-October 2004, the Joy-Fuller
Rehabilitation Center served 375 people. Their
average age was 65, with 52'-7 being male and
48% female. We constantly are comparing our
patient care outcomes to those within our region
and across the nation, and our "winning" results
are comparable. In fact, 94% of our patients'
rated our delivery and quality of care as very
continued after discharge, when she went back good to excellent. The numbers of the persons
to college, and in spite of discouragement from we admitted with our most commonly served
others, finished her degree. Ms. Wilson diagnoses were Stroke (135), Brain Injuries
80% of the Joy-Fuller Rehabilitation Center
patients back to their community of choice. We
assisted them in their goal by providing
intensive rehabilitation therapies, which
decreased their length of time in an inpatient
rehab center. Our lengths of stay for the above
diagnoses have "winning" results. Stroke (17
days), Brain Injuries (18 days), Orthopedic
Disorders (9 days), Multiple Trauma with
Brain/Spinal Cord Injury (21days), Spinal Cord
Dysfunction (15 d,% s). AmIputation of Limb (16
days), and Other Neurological/Medical
Conditions (12 days).
Another of our "winning" patients was Jared
Kelley, age 18. Mr. Kelley was involved in a
motor vehicle accident on 10/8/04, and was air
lifted to Lakeland Regional Medical Center with
a severe traumatic brain injury. After
appriximatcly 5 weeks, he was tiansfi.nud to
the Joy-Fuller Rehabilitation Center. Jared's
immediate focus was to go home. "The
rehabilitation staff helped me take my mind off
of wanting to leave." "They made rehab fun."
"I played checkers with Sabrina (one of his
caregivers), and cards with the staff." "Sabrina
became his second mother;" stated Mrs. Kelley,
Jared's mother. He has noticed his strength,
endurance, and short-termt memory are not as
good as they were before his injury. However,
'the rehab programs taught me to write things
down and repeat them to myself. This helps me
remember, and I continue to work out at the
gym." Jared has continued to work on his goal,
which is to finish high school. "I'm taking some
home bound courses right now and plan to start
back in school the next school year. I have an
"A" in my class right now." Wow, what a
winner! Sometimes in life we learn lessons the
hard way. Jared comments, "Before the accident
I was on the wrong road. The wreck was a good
thing. 1 see things in a different way. I am
focusing on what is important in life, my school,
and to stay away from drugs and alcohol."
"Rehab helped me put the pieces of the puzzle
back together." The Joy-Fuller Rehabilitation

Crist praised the efforts of mem-

ing workable solutions on this
important issue, including Reps.
Mark Foley, Katherine Harris and
Ginny Brown-Waite. He pledged to
work with the federal government

ingful procedures to protect chil-
dren from sex offenders, who he
called "a blight on society."
I believe it was no accident that
the Founding Fathers stressed the
importance of safety and security
by placing in the very first line of
the U.S. Constitution the mandate
that the very purpose of our gov-
ernment is 'to insure domestic
tranquility.' Little we do as public
servants will really matter if we do
not do something to prevent our
most innocent citizens from falling
victim to the unspeakable horrors
committed by sex offenders and
predators," said Crist.
Other witnesses on the panel
with Attorney General Crist were
Laura H. Parsky, Deputy Assistant
Attorney General of the Criminal
Division at the U.S. Department of
Justice; Carol Fornoff, of Tempe,
Arizona, whose 13-year-old
daughter Christy was abducted,
raped and murdered by a long-
time sex offender in 1984; and
John Rhodes, a federal public
defender from Montana.

Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not
We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when
wrong, and citizens need to know about problems.)
Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you
clip and tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The
vast majority of what happens in our community IS good.)
How are we doing?
