'Sneak Splash' preview July 29

The latest weapon in the bat-
tle against the summer heat
arrives Friday, July 29th, when
Cypress Gardens Adventure Park
opens the first attractions of
Splash Island for "Sneak Splash,"
a preview of the much-anticipat-
ed water park.
"Sneak Splash" will allow
guests to lazily float down the
crystal clear waters of Paradise
River, over a thousand feet of
twisting, turning lazy river fun.

Conquer the Polynesian Adven-
ture, a large interactive play struc-
ture with more than 100 plat-
forms, slides, water cannons,
blast buckets and other water
features. Then, get set for a tub-
ing adventure on the "Tonga
Tubes," the twin-slide complex.
Slip down more than four stories
of twisting, turning tubing fun
and splash into the pool below.
And that's just the beginning;
more Splash Island fun will fol-

low in the weeks to come! Keep
an eye out for the wave action at
"Kowabunga Bay and lightning-
fast adventure on the speed
slides of "Voodoo Plunge."
In keeping with Cypress Gar-
den Adventure Park's retro-Flori-
da theming, Splash Island fea-
tures a Polynesian atmosphere,
hearkening back to the days of
tikki bars and surfboards. The
water park will also include sev-
eral restaurants, such as Volcano

Jim's Snack Shack and Tikki Bar,
which will dish up hamburgers,
fries, pizza and other delectable
snacks. The Kahuna Bathhouse
will be the changing and shower
area, complete with rental lock-
ers and guests will want to make
one last stop at Island Traders for
that perfect keepsake to highlight
their Polynesian Adventure.
Construction of the water
park is being overseen by D&D
Construction of Lake Buena

Vista. Engineers for the park are
North Beach Engineering of Jack-
sonville and David May & Associ-
ates of Winter Haven. White

Annual alligator hunt planned

The Florida Fish.and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) is offering hunters a great
opportunity to take part in its
annual statewide alligator har-
vest, which runs Sept. 1 through
Oct. 8. Since 1988, Florida has
offered these alligator hunts,
which provide a thrilling, hands-
on, face-to-face hunting adven-
ture that is unlike any other hunt-
ing experience imaginable.
This season, more than 4,000
Alligator Harvest Permits will be
available on a first-come, first-
served basis. Permit holders are
authorized to take two alligators
from designated areas during
specific harvest periods.
Sale of these permits begins at
10 a.m. (EDT) July 6. Applicants
have their preference of applying
at any county tax collector's
office, license agent (retail outlet
that sells hunting and fishing
licenses), online at
MyFWC.com/license or by call-

ing toll-free 1-888-HUNT-FLORI-
DA (486-8356) from anywhere in
the United States or Canada.
To reserve a permit, appli-
cants must submit payment for
an Alligator Trapping License and
two alligator-hide validation tags,
or provide proof of a valid Alliga-
tor Trapping License (must be
valid through Oct. 8) plus pay the
fee for the two hide validation
tags. No other hunting licenses
are required.
The cost for a Resident Alliga-
tor Trapping License and hide
validation tags is $272, and non-
residents pay $1,022. Any hunter
who takes an alligator must com-
plete and send in an Alligator
Harvest Report Form. The infor-
mation gathered from these
forms enables FWC biologists to
monitor population trends and
impacts of the annual harvest.
An Alligator Trapping Agent
License is also available for $52,
which allows the license holder

to assist a trapper in taking alliga-
tors, but only in the presence of
the permitted trapper. All per-
sons seeking a harvest permit
must be at least 18 years of age
by Sept. 1, 2005, and only one
harvest permit per person will be
To educate participants on the
rules and regulations of the
hunts, the FWC offers a no-cost,
three-hour training and orienta-
tion program, which is held
throughout the state. Permit
recipients are not required to
attend, but first-time participants
are strongly encouraged to do so.
Courses will be offered in July
and August, and permit holders
will receive, by mail, permit
packages listing exact dates and

Over-watering can make Florida landscape care a washout

Irrigation + rain
= landscape

woes and runoff
Flourishing blankets of emer-
ald grass, trees soaring to spectac-
ular heights, and lush ornamental
plants are the roots of homeown-
ers' dreams. Pursuing landscape
perfection, however, is grounds
for landscape woes when over-
watering is sprinkled in the care
Over-watering too much or
too often is most common dur-
ing rainy season, when irrigation
systems should be adjusted to
match nature's natural rainfall.
More is not better, and keeping
landscapes over saturated can
damage plant materials, making

them susceptible to root and leaf
infestations. The problem packs a
double whammy when the land-
scape fails to thrive and weeds
flourish. The homeowner often
thinks more fertilizer will help,
more pesticides too, and a double
dose of herbicide is added for
good measure. More water, more
runoff, more leaching, more land-
scape failures, more fertilizer
"In fact, landscapes need less
of everything, especially water,"
said Bruce Adams, water conser-
vation officer with the South Flori-
da Water Management District.
"Too much water washes away
fertilizers and other treatments,
the landscapes still look sick, and
the cycle of more water, more
treatments, more runoff starts all
over again."
Southwest Florida entered the
first weeks of this year's rainy sea-

son which runs from June
through October with over a
foot of rain.
Rain and runoff
"Runoff, is a silent but serious
problem," noted Adams. "After all
the recent rains, our ground is so
saturated that watering is a waste
of our valuable resource, harmful
to landscapes and pollutes our
waterways." Watering now will
run off land, lawns and hard sur-
faces like parking lots, winding up
in Southwest Florida's natural
waterways rivers, creeks and
bays as well as our lakes and
canals. During the journey to the
waterways, runoff takes with it
pollutants such as fertilizers, pesti-
cides and herbicides used on land-
The District advises to turn off
irrigation systems when adequate

rainfall has occurred, and irrigate
only when landscapes truly need
to be watered.
Raindrops keep
falling on my lawn
"This annual rain pattern is
Southwest Florida's natural cycle
that replenishes the water supply
stored in underground aquifers,"
Adams said. "We rely on the sum-
mer rains to meet water demands
year-round. But because rain in
the summer is usually so plentiful,
it's easy to slip into the mindset
that careful use is a winter-only
Watching rain pelt the pave-
ment day after day can mislead
people into believing the District is
off the mark in its message about
the area's ongoing water short-
ages. Over time, population

growth, dramatic increases in the
number of winter residents and
visitors, and years of rainfall that
fell short of the average 53 to 56
inches a year resulted in precari-
ously low underground water lev-
els in Southwest Florida.
The rainfall is not evenly dis-
tributed from year to year. So
while the first half of June 2005,
overflowed with more than three-
and-one-half times the normal
annual amount, it's helping to
compensate for June 2004, when
rainfall was just 69 percent of the
normal average for the month.
The good news is that a few
simple changes in landscape
maintenance practices have huge
benefits: help protect the area's
waterways and save water, while
nurturing healthier landscapes.
Use the District's "Water on
Wilt" (WOW) method to recog-

nize when the lawn shows signs
of needing water:
Footprints are left in the
Blades of grass are curled;
A blue-gray tinge begins to
show on a normally green lawn.
"Irrigating only when it's
essential and cautious applica-
tions of fertilizer, pesticides and
herbicides benefit everyone,"
Adams said. "Landscapes are
healthier, the foreign substances
that reach the waterways are
reduced, and some of the fresh
water supply is replenished."

Oyster season in two

harvesting areas open

Tallahassee -Florida Agricul-
ture Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced the reopen-
ing of two of five summer oyster
harvesting areas in Apalachicola
Bay. The reopening of those
areas comes 10 days after the
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services had closed all
of the bay to oyster harvesting as
a result of potential impacts from
Hurricane Dennis.
"Public safety is our number
one concern, and we had to
make sure that the waters open
for harvest meet FDA standards,"
As a result of extensive moni-
toring of the bay, officials say they
are reopening Areas 1652 and
1662 as tests show that oysters
are safe to consume from those
areas. Area 1652 is north of the
John Gbrrie Memorial Bridge
while 1662 is south of the bridge.
Bronson emphasized that testing
is ongoing, and the remainder of
the shellfish harvesting areas will
reopen as soon as tests indicate
that shellfish from those areas are
safe to consume.
The Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services, which is

responsible for ensuring the safe
harvest of Florida shellfish, is
reminding high-risk Floridians to
avoid consuming raw oysters,
which often harbor the naturally
occurring bacteria Vibrio Vulnifi-
cus. Those at-risk for developing
serious illness from the bacteria
include heavy drinkers with liver
damage, as well as people with
certain health conditions, includ-
ing those with liver disease, dia-
betes, cancer, stomach disorders
or any illness or treatment that
weakens the immune system.
There are several cooking
techniques that individuals in
high-risk groups can use to enjoy
oysters while remaining safe.
Thoroughly cooking oysters,
either by frying, stewing or roast-
ing, eliminates harmful bacteria
and viruses in the meat. Con-
suming raw oysters that have
undergone a post-harvest treat-
ment process to eliminate the
bacteria can also reduce the risk
of illness.
Information on the status of
shellfish harvesting areas is avail-
able at the Division of Aquacul-
ture web site at http://www.Flori-

Committee lauds School Board

National Committee for Quali-
ty Assurance cites school district
program for excellence in dia-
betes management
The National Committee for
Quality Assurance, a leading
accrediting organization and eval-
Suator of health care practices, has
recognized the Polk County
School Board's "ABCs of Dia-
betes" as a program of excellence
in the management of diabetes in
health plans, health care organi-
zations and employers across the
The school district's ABCs of
Diabetes program is featured in
the NCQA report "Quality Profiles:
The Leadership Series-Focus on
Diabetes." The Quality Profiles
publications are designed to pro-
vide organizations with proven
examples, best practices, case
studies and resources in a specific
therapeutic area that they can

apply to their own quality
improvement efforts.
Polk County Public Schools,
with About 12,000 employees and
4,000 retirees, is the largest
employer in Polk County. The
impetus for ABCs of Diabetes was
an examination of claims data
that showed a large number of
services related to obesity, heart
disease and diabetes. In a single
school year, the school district
spent $16.7 million on diabetes
related care, 34.8 percent of its
total health care expenditures.
The cost of programming for
one year was approximately
$700,000 for staff and materials.
At the end of the first year of
implementation, claims were
$456 less per person for employ-
ees enrolled in the program. Sav-
ings yielded in medical expenses
was approximately $2.2 million
based on the number of workers

The school district embarked
upon a two-pronged approach to
address diabetes care, focusing
on health promotion and disease
management. The approach uti-
lized included health risk
appraisals, one-on-one counsel-
ing, behavior modification educa-
tion, biometric screenings, nutri-
tional counseling, physical fitness
testing, stress management semi-
nars and other strategies.
Individual schools used grant
funding to develop a worksite
wellness team at each site that
implemented services, promoted
the initiative among teachers and
tailored the wellness program to
the specific needs of employees
and health care services available
in the area. This site-specific
approach was significant since
Polk County consists of 160
schools located over a broad geo-

graphic area roughly the size of
the state of Rhode Island.
Incentives for participation in
the program included "Wellness
Bucks" that could be redeemed
for pedometers, workout, yoga or
pilates packages at fitness centers,
fitness equipment or therapy.
Employees could also earn other
benefits for making lifestyle
changes, providing testimonies
on the impact of the wellness pro-
gram or by demonstrating well-
ness leadership at their schools or
worksites. If an employee com-
pleted specific guidelines and
services, they could also receive a
50 percent reduction in pharmacy

Diabetes program is available

ness manager for Polk public
schools, at 291-5355.-

Consumer tips offered for school shopping

Consumer Credit Counseling
Service offers tips getting kids
ready to go Back to School doesn't
have to break the bank
With a new school year just a
few weeks away, many parents
are facing one of their largest sin-
gle expenses of the year-getting
their kids ready to go. "Buying
school supplies, along with new
shoes and clothes, can put a strain
on the family budget," said Jessica
Cecere, president of Consumer
Credit Counseling Service of Palm
Beach County & the Treasure
Coast (CCCS). "And waiting until
the last minute to shop can lead to
frenzied shopping, overspending,
and unnecessary credit-card debt.
A little planning can save time and
money." CCCS offers tips to help
families get ready.
Start by taking a thorough
inventory of what you already
have. Round up all your excess
school supplies and check the
closets for clothes and shoes that
fit and are still in good shape.
Make a list of things you still need,
and develop a budget. Then, prior-
itize your list, with the most
important at the top. If your budg-
et requires you to cut items from
your list, start at the bottom.
The next step is to compare
prices of different items. If a store
five miles away is offering a low
price on blue jeans or uniform
prices;. iti.ay. be worth ~ he drive.
Buy underwear, socks, and other
basics in quantity when they are
on sale, making sure to allow for
growth. Check as many newspa-
per advertisements and catalogs
as possible before you finally
make your purchases. And don't
forget to check consignment, dis-
count and outlet stores, as many
carry quality school clothes and
uniform components at lower
prices. For younger children, who
grow so quickly, consider swap-
ping clothes with friends, family
and neighbors.
Another important strategy is

to remember that what you buy is
as important as how you buy.
Basic, durable clothing will stretch
your dollars significantly. Check
for strong buttonholes, secure
buttons, reinforced stitching, firm-
ly woven or knitted fabric, and
basic styles. And avoid fad items,
as they will likely be 'cool' for only
a short time.
Some important things to
remember about back-to-school
Children grow quickly. What
fits in August might not fit in Janu-
ary. So look for clothes that your
kids won't outgrow too quickly,
like blouses and shirts with long
tails, or shorts and pants with
elastic waistbands. During the
school year, you can turn pants
into shorts or make short sleeves
out of long sleeves, as your child
grows. Consider consigning
clothes that no longer fit as a way
to earn money for new clothes.
Kids like 'easy' clothes. For
younger children, getting the best
value for your dollar means buy-
ing clothes they like to wear. Look
for articles they can manage with-
out much help. For example,
front openings, flat buttons, easy-
to-reach pockets, elastic waist-
bands, and large necklines make
it easier for kids to get dressed in
the morning. Remember, the eas-
ier it is for them to dress them-
selves, the less stressful your
Save on school supplies.
Before you run to the "Back to
School" section at an expensive
retailer, compare prices with
lower-priced outlets and office-
supply stores. You might find that
the spiral notebook with the really
colorful cover is more expensive
and has less paper than the one
with the. plain cover. Some
schools will bundle school sup-
plies and offer them for sale-this
may be a less expensive way to
get what you need, and will cer-
tainly save you time.

Shopping for school clothes
and supplies also gives parents a
great opportunity to teach their
children about spending habits.
Sit down with your children and
talk about the budget for supplies
and clothes. Let them do the com-
parison shopping and point out
that if they get the more expensive
sneakers, they have to cut back in
other areas. Not only will they
learn about smart shopping, they
will value what you buy for them
much more.
In Florida, parents can also
take advantage of a sales tax holi-
day. From July 23 through July 31,
shoppers will not pay sales tax on
the following back to school
items: Clothing and related items
with a sales price of $50 or less,
books with a sales price of $50 or
less, and school supplies with a
sales price of $10 or less. This can
help your back to school budget
go a little further.
The most important strategy
for Back to School shopping is.to
stick to the budget you set. Bring
only as much cash as you need,
based on your budget, and leave
your credit cards at home. You will
prepare your children for another
wonderful school year without
breaking the family budget.

Male sex offender receives sentence

Tallahassee Attorney General
Charlie Crist announced that an
Orange County man was sen-
tenced on July 22 to 20 years in
state prison and was designated as
a sex offender after traveling to Polk
County to meet a young boy for a
pre-arranged liaison. Walter Ham-
mel, who was convicted last
month of 15 counts of using a com-
puter to prey upon a child over the
internet, was unaware that the per-
son with whom he communicated
over the internet was actually an
undercover law enforcement offi-

In addition, to the prison term,
Hammel, 52, was also sentenced to
10 years probation. The case was
prosecuted by the Attorney Gener-
al's Office of Statewide Prosecu-
tion, which has specific jurisdiction
to prosecute cases involving sec-
tion 847.0135(3), Use of a Comput-
er to Seduce a Child over the Inter-
net. The case was tried in Polk
"Prison is where these preda-
tors belong," said Crist. "I com-
mend Circuit Judge Harvey Korn-

stein for taking this crime seriously
and protecting Florida's children
from this sex offender's potential
future acts."
The case began in October 2003
when an officer, working with a
Central Florida task force on inter-
net crimes against children, moni-
tored an internet chatroom. Ham-
mel struck up an online
conversation with the agent, who
he believed was a 13-year-old boy
named "Larry." Over a period of
time, Hammel attempted to lure
"Larry" to his home in Orange

County, and at one point sent
pornographic images of young
boys. After a month of online con-
versations, Hammel traveled to a
Wal-Mart in Haines City intending
to pick up "Larry" and take him to
his home in Winter Garden.
Hammel was arrested when he
approached a decoy arranged by
Among the agencies involved in
the joint investigation were the

ment and the Eagle Lake Police

Unusual "Tater" discovery helps Manatees

A French fry that looks like Abra-
ham Lincoln, a chip that looks like
Elvis, and now a potato that looks
like a manatee! Huh? This normally
humble vegetable in its other popu-
lar forms has certainly made some
curious headlines in the past!
Recently an Idaho "baker" caught
the eye of Kimberly Matthiensen
and her husband. One night while
they were preparing dinner in their
Virginia home, Kimberly pulled a
potato out of a bag and was instant-
ly amazed at how much it looked
like a manatee. "It was the most
hilarious thing I had ever seen!"
said Kimberly. "I had heard of peo-
ple finding silly things, but this one
was too cute."
Florida-reared, Kimberly is a
huge manatee fan and has adopted
Betsy from Save the Manatee
Club's Adopt-A-Manatee program
at Homosassa Springs. She had

heard about people auctioning all
kinds of things on eBay, and she
thought it might be a good oppor-
tunity to feature her manatee-
shaped potato, that she nicknamed
"Spud," on the online auction site,
and donate the net proceeds to
Save the Manatee Club for manatee
protection efforts. Kimberly con-
tacted the Club and made her pro-
"We're very happy Kimberly is
doing this," said Judith Vallee,
Executive Director of the nonprofit
organization. "We all got a great
laugh out of the photos she sent
and thought why not? It's a creative
way to help spread the word about
endangered manatees."
Kimberly explained how Spud
has very faint ripples on its body,
similar to a real manatee.
"There are little dimples for
eyes, it looks like there's a hint of a

smile, and there are even these little
crevices on the back which remind
me of propeller scars." Many of
these large gentle herbivores found
year round in Florida's waterways
bear real scars from propeller
blades, and, sadly, collisions with
boats are the largest known cause
of manatee deaths. Through the
Club's numerous conservation and
education programs, people
around the world are eager to help

the harmless marine mammals,
whose main agenda is eating and
sleeping very much like some of
the human "couch potatoes" we
all fondly know!
"I really don't understand how
anyone couldn't love manatees,"
said Kimberly. "I feel passionate
about them, and I'm glad Save the
Manatee Club keeps us posted on.
everything that's going on, and
how we can help." She'd like to

add Spud to her own personal col-
lection of manatee items, but feels
the eBay sale will be a special way
for her to help manatees. "I'd like to
move back to Florida some day. I
want my three kids to be able to
enjoy the manatees, just like I did
when I was little," Kimberly said. "I
really feel seeing a manatee in the
wild should be at the top of every-
body's list of things they should do
in their lives."

Celebrate the thrill of grilling with summer recipes

The arrival of summer brings
with it reasons to celebrate; and
people honor the warm-season
tradition by firing up the grill and
hosting festive gatherings with
family and friends. And with many
Americans wanting to maintain
healthier, slimmer figures during
the summer season, grilled foods
can offer healthy eating alterna-
tives to high-calorie, high-fat choic-
es that sabotage weight-loss plans.
But grillers beware: Grilled
doesn't always equal low calorie.
Just because it's made on the grill
and not fried in a pan doesn't
mean it constitutes a healthy meal.
While grilling is a healthier way to
prepare meals, don't get tricked
into thinking that it's always the
best option. The key to delicious,
healthy grilling is smart substitu-
tions. For example, swap burgers
made from extra lean ground beef
or turkey, or even veggie burgers,
for the classic versions. And turkey
franks are a great alternative to
beef franks.
The same goes for traditional
sides, such as chips: choose baked
over regular.
Oftentimes, plain produce,
such as corn, squash or zucchini,
can be turned into a fabulous treat
by adding a few calorie-free spices
or nonfat cooking spray before
Try these fresh delicious
options for healthy grilling from
the new
Weight Watchers cookbook,
Grill It!:

Fresh Tomato-Basil Bruschetta,
a combination of juicy tomato
mixed with fresh basil and olive
oil, is sure to satisfy the taste buds.
Snapper Fillets with Summer
Vegetables offers a light, healthy
dish with loads of flavor, and com-
plements the ripe and refreshing
flavors of the Tomato-Basil
Bruschetta appetizer.
Charred Bananas with Sweet
Lime Sauce is a satisfying ending
to a meal that combines the tanta-
lizing flavors of ginger, lime, and
brown sugar to create a luscious
tropical treat. ,

can or peasant bread, three 1/2 x 6
one garlic clove, halved
eight fresh basil leaves, slivered
two teaspoons olive oil
two large ripe tomatoes, each
cut into eight slices
1. Spray the grill rack with non-
stick spray; prepare the grill for a
medium fire using the direct
2. Place the bread slices on the
edges of the grill rack; toast just
long enough to crisp and char
them lightly. Turn with tongs, and
toast the other sides.
3. Rub the bread with the garlic
halves; wrap loosely in foil to keep
4. Combine the basil and oil in

a small bowl, and gently toss the

Snapper fillets with
summer vegetables
makes four servings
four (5-ounce) red snapper fil-
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground
one medium zucchini, cut into
thin strips
one medium yellow squash,
cut into thin strips
1/2 small leek, cut into thin
one medium carrot, cut into
thin strips
four tablespoons bottled clam
juice, or fish or vegetable broth
four lemon slices
1. Prepare the grill for a medi-
um fire using the direct method*.
2. Lightly spray four (18-inch)
squares of foil with nonstick spray.
Place one fish fillet in the center of
each foil square and season each

with one-fourth of the salt and
pepper; distribute one- fourth
each of the zucchini, squash, leek,
and carrot evenly over each fillet.
Top each with 1 tablespoon of the
clam juice and one lemon slice.
3. Make the packets by bringing
two sides of the foil up to meet in
the center and pressing the edges
together to seal. Then fold the
edges of each end together to seal.
Allowing room for the packets to
expand, crimp the edges together
to seal.
4. Place the packets on the grill
for 10 minutes. The packets will
puff up as the fish and vegetables
cook. Remove the packets from
the grill and open them carefully,
avoiding the steam. Transfer the
contents of each packet to plates
and serve at once.

Charred bananas with
sweet lime juice
makes four servings
one tablespoon + one tea-
spoon packed brown sugar
two teaspoons fresh lime juice

1/2 teaspoon grated peeled
fresh ginger
two bananas, split lengthwise
1. Spray the grill rack with non-
stick spray; prepare the grill for a
fire using the direct method.
2. To make the ginger sauce;
combine the sugar, lime juice, and
ginger in a small bowl. Set aside..
3. Place the bananas on the grill
rack and grill until lightly browned,
about three minutes on each
side. Transfer the bananas to indi-
vidual serving plates and drizzle
each with the ginger sauce. Serve
Tip: The bananas become a bit
soft as they grill, so try using an
extra-wide spatula to turn them
more easily. Use bananas that are
firm with no brown spots as they
will hold up better.
