to that facility. Other shelter

shot records for each pet, which
will be reviewed upon arrival at
the shelters; an airline approved

Dear Editor
In the past three years, Frost-
proof has had four city managers
and four interim city managers.
Our finances have suffered.
I agreed to run for office solely
to stabilize our government and
help us out of the fix we're in.
First, I believe we should pro-
vide full disclosure to the public
as to the state of our finances.
From what, I've seen, it's not.
Second, we should hear from
the public as to how we should
right the ship. Unless disclosure
reveals dishonesty or criminal
activity, fault finding at this stage
will not be constructive. Cost cuts
and revenue 'enhancement
should both be on the table.
Third, our City Council will

A genuine concern
Now that the elections are
behind us, our hope is that all our
newly elected Members of Con-
gress will get on with an agenda to
.achieve affordable and accessible
health care for everyone in need
here in Polk County. Fortunately,
we have a good model already in
place our local Community
Health Center. The federal pro-
gram has a forty-year record of
proven success reducing disease
and keeping down health care
costs. The program has
unmatched bi-partisan support
and now serves nearly 16 million
people across the country. Central
Florida Health Care, Inc.(CFHC,
Inc.), provides a health care home
to thousands of people right hefe
in our community, by being their
regular source of care. We help all

our clients to lead healthy, produc-
tive lives and to stay out of over-
crowded hospital emergency
The new Congress has a
chance to put politics aside and do
something positive to meet the
need for affordable and accessible
health care. Supporting health
centers offers Congress the chance
to hit the ground running and join
a bipartisan consensus around a
proven solution in an otherwise
contentious debate around health
care. All they have to do is help pass
legislation that will increase funding
for the program so it can reach
more people. Let's hope the new
Congress doesn't waste time and
does the right thing for everyone.

Sponsor a FHS Senior for graduation

Pictured above is Arthur (Arti)
Bethel with his grandparents,
Roger and Barbara Coulson. Sun-
rise Trailer Park, a community for
the 55 and over, is sponsoring him
for Project Graduation. Sunrise
Trailer Park is owned and operat-
ed by the Coulson family and has
been for more than 30 years.
Arti is a senior at Frostproof
Senior High, and he is known to
his classmates as the "Class
Clown". There are always smiles
and laughter around him. There
isn't a frown that he can't turn
upside down.
After graduation, Arti intends
to pursue a military career. He
will be going into the Army's
Avionics Division. His goal is to
become an Apache' helicopter
pilot. He will, also, be taking

advantage of the military's col-
lege program. Arti will be taking
courses to become an Architect.

Submitted photo/Teresa Bethel
His plan is to open his own office
after finishing his military career.
Project Graduation is a coor-

dinated community effort, com-
mitted to keeping our graduating
seniors safe on graduation night
with an all-night chaperoned,
drug and alcohol free event. It is
estimated this all-night adventure
will cost a minimum of $100 per
The Project Graduation Com-
mittee challenges everyone in
the community to sponsor a sen-
ior for this event. Please con-
tribute to this worthy cause and
accept the challenge! If you
would like.to sponsor a senior,
contact Russ Flood, or you may
send donations (along with a
note about which student you are
sponsoring) to Project Gradua-

Independent Newspapers will
; never accept any advertise-
ment that is illegal or con-
sidered fraudulent. In all
cases of questionable val-
ue, such as promises of
guaranteed income from
work-at-home programs if
it sounds too good to be
true, chances are that it is.
If you have questions or
doubts about any ad on-
these pages, we advise that
before responding or send-
ing money ahead of time,
you check with the Better
Business Bureau at
772-878-2010 for previous
Some 800 and 900 telephone
numbers may require an
extra charge, as well as
long distance toll costs. We
will do our best to alert our
reader of these charges in
the ads, but occasionally
we may not be aware of the
charges. Therefore, if you
call a number out of your
area, use caution.

Think twice about pets for gifts

When it comes to giving pets
as a gift, experts say think twice.
Pets aren't like fruitcakes some-
thing to be handed .oit that no
one wants and is eventually dis-
Giving a pet as a gift can often
:be a present the recipient doesn't
want, and both the animal- and
.the owner end up unhappy, says
Dr. Bonnie Beaver, an. animal
behavior expert at Texas A&M
University's College of Veterinary
Medicine & Biomedical Sciences.
"If you think you might want to
give someone a pet, make very
sure the recipient wants a pet,"
Beaver says.
"A person getting a pet as a gift
should know about it beforehand
and should be in the decision-
making process. He or she should
have a say in the selection of an
animal the person will have for

the next 10 to 15 years."
Another reason to think twice

Electrical cords. are more
prevalent at Christmas and these
are often chewed on by puppies
or kittens, Beaver notes. Christ-
mas tinsel can be an attractive toy
but one that is deadly for animals
if they swallow it, she adds, and
plants such as the Poinsettia can
harm animals if they should chew
on the ever-present red leaves.
"Often at this time of year, peo-
ple haven't had a chance yet to
'kitty-proof' or 'puppy-proof'
their homes," she continues.
"Puppies and kittens like to eat
things they shouldn't, and there

are lots of these untouchables
around at Christmas time. You
have to be more careful about
things left ou' than at other times
ofthe year."
Beaver says if you are consid-
ering giving someone a pet, espe-
cially a child, show the recipient a
.picture of a pet at a.pet store and
let he or she go later to select one,
or give a gift coupon to the person
for a selection at a later date.
Sometimes giving a stuffed toy
to a youngster lets the child know
a pet is coming and he or she can
be part of the decision on which
one to select, Beaver adds.
"If the child doesn't like the
pet, .the parents wind up caring
for it, which often they don't want
to do," she adds.
Unwanted' pets at Christmas
usually show up at animal shel-
ters a.few months later, Beaver

"It usually takes a couple of
months for the recipient to deter-
mine the pet is not something he
or she wants to keep, and it's in
the early spring that shelters see
an increase in animals coming
through their doors.
"The novelty has worn off and
the animal is no longer wanted. A
pet should be something people
enjoy, and with holiday stress and
not much time during Christmas,
a pet is often just not a very sensi-
ble gift."

Check out health clubs before signing contracts

TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
.Commissiorner Charles H. Bron-
son is reminding Florida resi-
dents to check out health clubs
.before signing any contracts or'
all they might end up losing is
Getting in shape is one of the
top New Year's resolutions and
many people may be consider-
ing buying a gym membership
for a loved one over the holiday.
But Mr. Bronson urges con-
sumers to do their homework
and not assume they can cancel
a contract if they simply change
their minds about attending a
"A gym membership is a great.
gift, but it is an investment and
buyers should be sure that it is a
gift the recipient will use before
they invest the money," Bronson
said. "Health club contracts are
legally binding like any other
contract and require .some
thought and investigation."

The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices administers the Health Stu-
dio Law, which provides con-
sumers with some rights but also
spells out their responsibilities.
Health clubs are required to reg-
ister with the Department's Divi-
sion of Consumer Services and
many must also post a bond that
can be used to repay members if
the facility goes out of business.
The. refunds are provided in
cases where members pay pre-
paid memberships.
In fiscal year 2005-06, the
Department registered 1,948
health clubs, of which 422 were
new applications. Halfway
through fiscal year 2006-07, 752
health clubs have registered, 184
of which are new applications.
"Unfortunately, many people
are so focused on getting in
shape, they sign up for a mem-
bership without bothering to
read the fine print of a contract,"
Mr. Bronson said. "But there are

issues that are covered that con-
sumers really need to know
about from the onset, such as
under what conditions they can
cancel, what activities are cov-
ered in the membership and
other aspects that may be impor-
tant to the consumer's needs."
The law provides consumers
with the right to cancel a con-
tract for certain reasons includ-
ing: cancellation within three
days of signing a contract, exclu-
sive of holidays and weekends,
but it must be done in writing; if
the facility moves more than five
miles away from the original
location and fails to provide,
within 30 days, a facility of equal
quality located within five miles;
if a person becomes physically
unable to use most of the servic-
es for which they contracted,
until the disability ends.
Mr. Bronson also recom-
mends consumers follow these
tips before signing a contract:
Call the Department's

helpline at 1-800-HELPFLA (1-
800-435-7352) to make sure the
health studio is registered and to
check its complaint history.
Find out if the studio has
posted a bond with the Depart-
ment, as most that collect fees in
advance are required to do.
Prior to joining, ask about
the club's cancellation policy
should you move or become
physically unable to use the facil-
Before signing up, visit the
club during the hours you intend
to use it to determine whether it
is overcrowded and the equip-
ment you plan to use is avail-

Fields-Huston Gives Keys to

Cadillac XLR Winner Carla Porter

congratulations to Carla Porter of
Winter Haven! She held the winning
Ticket in Mid-Florida Medical
Services Foundation's raffle for a sleek new 2006
Cadillac XLR convertible from Fields-Huston
Cadillac in Lake Wales.

But the big winners are the patients and families
served by the Mid-Florida Medical Services
Foundation and Winter Haven Hospital. That's
because the raffle's proceeds close to $30,000 -
will go toward patient care initiatives underway
at the hospital. As part of the recent Foundation
Gala, the raffle was key to pushing the event's
total proceeds to over $475,000.

It was a record for the fourth consecutive year.
And it could not have been done without the
commitment and support of community sponsors
such as Fields-Huston Cadillac.

"We can't thank our corporate sponsors like
Fields-Huston Cadillac enough," says Richard
Straughn, Foundation Chairmain. "Without their
support, it would be tough to achieve advances
like the Bostick Heart Center, the new UF Shands
Cancer Center, our nationally accredited stroke
center and the nationally recognized Regency
Medical Center for women and children."

Why do east Polk County's corporate philanthro-
pists support the Mid-Florida Medical Services

"For us, it's about having access to world-class
physicians and health-care services locally" says
Dave Huston. "All of us at Fields-Huston
Cadillac are proud to be part of ensuring that we
have state-of-the-art healthcare when we need it."

And the work continues.

"We're thankful for the support of organizations
like Fields-Huston Cadillac," says Joel Thomas,
the Foundation's executive director. "Because we
have an exciting story to tell about the services
Winter Haven Hospital provides and those we are
striving to create for our patients. We look
forward to sharing our story with other
individuals and organizations that want to help us
take health care in east Polk to the next level of

Mid-Florida Medical Service;
