It was Frostproof vs. Ban

and Frostproof won

International Practical Shooting Confederations World Championship coming in 2014

It was Frostproof vs. Bangkok and
Frostproof won. The two cities were
finalists for the 2014 International
Practical Shooting Confederations World
Championship, an event held every
three years that is projected to bring in
at least 1,500 competitors for a 10-day
stay here. The last time the world cham-
pionship was held in the United States
was in 1986.
"It will have a $7.7 million impact to
this area," said Neal Duncan, sponsorship
sales manager of the Polk County Tourism
and Sports Marketing said.
He said the key was in the presentation
they made to the.IPSC General Assembly
which has representatives from 88 differ-
ent countries.
SFor the presentation the PCTSM
dreamed \ich Frank Garcia the onier of
Universal Shooting Academy in Frost-
"We promoted the family friendly at-
mosphere and Floiida has appeal around

the world," Duncan said.
Garcia, who was the IPSC champion in
1999's event, said it was more than that
and itwas all due Polk County's sports
marketing bureau. He didn't take any V i
part in the presentation they made at the
World Shoot XVI event in Rhodes, Greece. .
But, he said, using his name with
it and working hard for the last three
months helped Polk County win the
championship. He said it was a one-vote
victory for Frostproof to beat Thailand,
which is known as a vacation capital of
the Philippines.
There was some selling to do. While -- -
Frostproof is notthe kind of place that can
accommodate 1,500 people and while Polk
County is "spread out" all over the place,
Duncan said, they vere able to tackle the
problem for the General Assembly.
"That was asked and because Polk is
spread out we're able to move people and ..
show people all around the place and
handle it," he said.

Council may change code on house lands
By STEVE STEINER "He is grandfathered in," said Smith, and added the I
SSTEINER@LAKEWALESNEWS.COM particular business was in operation more than 40

Frostproof Council members were asked to con-
--sider amending a regulation to the land development
code regarding pre-existing home occupations.
SThe proposed changes included recognition of
Snon-conforminghome occupations that existed prior
to the adoption of the unified LDC; requirements of
a business tax receipt within 60 days of enactment
to be recognized as a pre-existing home occupation;
and home occupations to comply with therequire-
r. rents of non-conforming use of buildings and land.
Proposed amendments to the latter included
reference regarding pre-existing home occupations;
.a provision that "All materials used in the operation
of home occupations shall be stored, contained, and
disposed of consistent with applicable local, state and
federal laws"; andreference to definitions for exam-
ples of home occupations.
Councilwoman Diane Biehl questioned businesses
attached to "accessory structures" (homes) and cited
an example without specifically naming the particu-
lar business, but leaving no doubt to which business
she referenced. It prompted a reply from city attorney
Mark Smith.

Smith also added the purpose of the amendment
was to grandfather other businesses. Biehl asked him
as to the necessity for such an action, to which Smith
said, "They were non-conforming when they started."
Biehl asked for a clarification regarding that part
of the code that addressed the storage, containment
and disposal of materials. She asked if, as written, did
the language mean all business must be conducted
inside. The reply was, no, that the wording allowed for
flexibility. In response, Biehl cautioned fellow council
"We've gotten ourselves in hot water no thinking
about the issues," she said.
Council unanimously approved the proposal. This
will allow for the advertisement of a short title, to be
followed by a public hearing at the Nov. 21 session.
In another related matter, council members con-
sidered a request from Habitat for Humanity. Not
originally on the agenda, Mayor Kay S. Hutzelman
asked council members at the start of the public ses-
sion if they would add the request to the agenda. The
request was granted and placed at the end of new

Stop by a public library on any weekday and
you are likely to find people looking through the
shelves of books, magazines, puzzles, CDs and
Others are picking up books they ordered online.
At least one person guaranteed will be scour-
ing the movie DVDs. Someone will be sitting near
the window reading a newspaper. The reference
librarian may be offering advice. The computer
terminals likely will be filled. A book club or the
Extension Service may be using a meeting room.
In Polk County, libraries are busy places. Statis-
tics tell us they've become busier places since the
recession took hold a few years ago. Library visits
rose as the economy sank.
People borrowed more books, DVDs and CDs,
and computer use increased. It just goes to show
if there's one government service our population
holds dear, it's this one.
Last Wednesday, Florida libraries joined the
National Library Association for an event called
"Snapshot Day," which is intended to give a one-
day-in the-life picture of library use with photos,
stories and statistics.

Our Viewpoint
Public and school libraries in Polk County par-
ticipated. The Nov. 9 statistics haven't been released
yet, but here's what was compiled on the previous
Snapshot Day held Jan. 25:
On that day, 253,168 people visited one of the
365 participating libraries.
2,900 people got new library cards.
They checked out 332,552 items.
16,755 children, teens and adults attended pro-
grams at 1,285 library programs statewide.
44,139 people asked questions at the informa-
tion desk.
61,664 used a library computer and 10,090 were
helped or taught how to use a computer.
2,667 job seekers received assistance. Another
2,299 received assistance in applying for govern-
ment benefits
With numbers like that, it's clear libraries play a
vital role in the daily life of the community. Still,
the continual budget squeeze means libraries must
adapt to leaner realities. And they are.

brary system
Libraries in Polk County that offer free internet
access are:
Auburndale Public Library
Bartow Public Library
Dundee Public Library
Eagle Lake Public Library
Fort Meade Public Library
Haines City Public Library
Lake Alfred Public Library
Lake Wales.Public Library
Lakeland Public Library
Latt Maxcy Memorial Library (Frostproof)
Mulberry Municipal Library
Polk City Municipal Library
Polk County Historical & Genealogical Library
Polk County Law Library
Winter Haven Public Library
Members of any Polk County library can, in addi-
tion to checking out books, download audiobooks,
books, music and videos.
As electronic services expand, we can expect to
*see even much more use and interest in our public
libraries. It may be tougher to take a snapshot of
that, but we know it will be there.

The Opus Magnus

becomes reality

It started with just seven words: "That
sounds like a book to me."
In my first 20 years at the newspaper
publishing company founded by my
grandfather and great-grandfather, I
learned 10 things about management.
It occurred to me that I really owed it to
our staff, and particularly f(oour super-
visors, to commit them to writing.
Thus was born "Management Phi-
losophy of Frisbie Publishing Co., Inc.,
or Frisbie's Laws." One page, 10 laws, 10
Over the next 20 years, I learned 10
more things, and; at the rate of one ev-
ery other year, Frisbie's Laws grew to 20.

After 45 years of managing the
company, first as junior member of a
team made up of my father, Loyal, and
his brother, Richard, and me, and later
with my friend Man'. it was time to start
looking seriously at retirement.
None of our three children chose
to go into the newspaper business, so
Mary and I approached Derek Dunn-
Rankin, longtime friend and majority
stockholder of Sun Coast Media Group.
In negotiations described by our
lawyer as the most harmonious he
ever saw in a corporate sale, Sun Coast
purchased the publishing company that
had been in the Frisbie family for 75
years, with Mary and me remaining on
the staff under three-year management
contracts.And no, it was not a difficult
decision, as many friends assumed that
it was.
There is a time in life for all things,
and it was time for us to retire. We
would make the same decision again.

Among the mountains of paperwork
we furnished to Sun Coast was a copy
of Frisbie's Laws. Apparently copies
were circulated among Sun Coast's top
Over the course of the next few weeks,
I got numerous favorable comments on
them, in particular from Richard Hack-
ney, vice president for operations.
I chanced to mention that to Bo
Raulerson, lifelong friend and owner of
Bartow Christian Books and Gifts.
He responded. "That sounds like a
book to me."-
With those seven words, he created
an itch that I had to scratch.

It's a long story, but today, "Frisbie's
Laws: 20 Surefire Rules for Management
Success" is a book. Mary and I took
delivery of the first 250 copies of a 1,000
print order on Friday, 11/ 11 11.
Marilis Hornidge ofWaldoboro,
Maine, a fellow columnist until her
death last January and one of the five
people who agreed to edit the book,
called it my Opus Magnus. I don't know
Latin, but it has a classy sound to it, and
it stuck.
.Under the watchful eye of Sandy

Knowles of Winter Haven, owner of
Three Rivers Books, I am self-pub-
lishing. That means I make all the
decisions, pay all the costs, do all the
marketing, and keep all the profits (if
there are any) until Tax Day.
The difference between self-publish-
ing and "vanity press" is that self-pub-
lishers are supposed to know what they
are getting into. I think I do.
Time will tell.
I do not expect Sun Coast to let me
use my column as a twice-a-week free
ad for Frisbie's Laws, so I will try to give
it my best shot with this one.
Frisbie's Laws costs $14.95 ($16 with
tax) and I will mail it anywhere in the
United States (we self publishers think
big) for another four bucks.

The first 1,000 copies will be signed
and numbered, and whenever possible,
will include a note to the purchaser.
Personalized, in other words.
That's one of the things they teach
you in Self-Publishing 101.

journalism. Does writing a book, by defi-

That depends on how many copies he

Making smart Frostproof kids even smarter!

Above: Erkajah Robey made sure to
write her name in the book right away,
while Zachery Mullally checked out
some of the interesting facts and trivia
in the back of the book which acts
as an almanac with facts on states,
presidents and more. In all, the book
contains 524 pages of information.
At right: Student were told as the books-
were being passed out that there was a
certain word in the book that if any student
could pronounce correctly, all the kids in
that dass would get an A from their teacher
on their next test. Here, Ambria Walker
checks out the word, which just happened "
to be the longest word in the English
language, which contains 1,909 letters.
Needless to say, despite the best efforts of
some students, no one in any of the dass-
rooms earned a free A on their next test.

The Lake Wales Breakfast Rotary wishes to thank all
of our sponsors who helped make our event a success.

Bulldogs pick up momentum boost with grid win

The Frostproof Bulldogs, heading to the
post-season for the first time in three years,
will head there with a nice bit of momen-
tum after rallying to defeat playoff-bound
Auburndale Friday night at Faris Brannen
The host Bulldogs trailed at one point,
14-3, but rallied with an early and late score
in the second half to even their season
mark at 5-5.
It was one of the Frostproof's better
efforts of the season. Just last week Auburn-
dale led Lake Wales 7-0 midway through
the fourth quarter before surrendering two
late touchdowns in losing 14-7.
Frostproof needed just three plays to
cut into Auburndale's lead as Kaleel Gains
broke free off the left side and outraced the
Bloodhounds defense to the goal line on a
76-yard TD burst. Lamar Bobb added the
extra point, and just 35 seconds into the
second half, Frostproof trailed just 14-10.
And they took the lead on one of their

most impressive drives of the season,
marching 90 yards in 13 plays, eating up
more than six minutes of game clock in the
fourth quarter.
The winning drive featured a number of
different Bulldogs chewing up key yardage.
Tyrone Hamilton had a 13-yard run, Jake
Smith added a big 13-yarder on a 3rd-and-7
play and Jaylan McKinney tacked on a
15-yarder. McKinney capped the posses-
sion by going off right tackle from two yards
out with just 1:29 to play for the winning
The two lubi, Itg l I it out defensively
over the first two quarters, or for at least
the first 23 minutes before lightning struck
for the visitors. Auburndale didn't even
get a first down until midway through the
second quarter, and after fumbling their
opening snap, went three and out on their
next three possessions.
Frostproof's only points came as a result
of that fumble. Bobb was true and through
on a 23-yard field goal less than three

Lamar Bobb has only been kicking for a couple of weeks, but his field goal was the difference in a
17-14 win over Auburndale Friday night at Faris Brannen Stadium.

We have the

generator to fit

your needs.


Tyrone Hamilton and Toddrick Gaines smother this Aubumdale runner. Frostproof will need
another big defensive effort Friday night.

minutes into the game. Kaleel Gaines had
an 11-yard run on Frostproof's second play
of the game, after taking over on the Blood-
hound 26, and the Bulldogs eventually
drove to the visitor's five yard line before an
incomplete pass on third down prompted
the successful field goal drive.
Frostproof looked like it had another gift
from Auburndale, when Toddrick Gaines
jumped on a muffed punt at the Blood-
hound 30 early in the second frame. Two
bobbled snaps and an incomplete pass left
the hosts with a 4th and 20, and it appeared
the threat was over. But Auburndale was
flagged for a personal foul for running into
punter Federico Avellaneda and Frostproof
was back in business at the 25. However,
three plays later the drive stalled and Bobb
missed from 40 yards.
Auburndale took the lead with just a
minute to go. After a short punt allowed the

Bloodhounds to take over at the Frostproof
31, quarterback Brett Taylor found Lopton
Pierre who made a nice, running fingertip
catch at the goal line for a touchdown. The
PAT kick made it 7-3.
They upped that to 14-3 on the final play
of the half. A 40-yard pass completion from
Zach Jenkins to Marcus Bobb on the ensu-
ing last-minute-in-the-quarter drive gave
Frostproof a first down on the Auburndale
20. But three plays later, Jenkins once again
found himself under a heavy pass rush,
and lost the football. Demetrius McNair
picked it up and if not for a valiant effort by
Jenkins to track him down all the way at the
Bulldog six-yard line, would have scored.
'Two plays later, however, as time in the
half ran out, Devonte London broke the
plane from a yard out. The kick was good
and the two teams trotted to their respec-
tive locker rooms with the Bulldogs sud-
denly on the wrong end of a 14-3 score.
The Bulldogs will be on the road next
week to take on Berkley Prep in Tampa in
the first round of the state's Class 3A foot-
ball olavoffs. Kickoffis at 7:30 p.m.

Friday Night Preview

WHAT: Class 3A, District 6 high
school football regional semi-finals
WHO: Frostproof Bulldogs at
Berkeley Prep
WHERE: At Berkeley Prep, 4811
Kelly Road, Tampa
WHEN: Friday, 7:30 p.m. kickoff
eyes all the time on Nelson Agholor,
who rushed for just under 1,500
yards and 23 touchdowns this year.
Last week against Arcadia, as Berke-
ley Prep completed its first unde-
feated regular season in eight years,
he scored on a run, punt return and
interception return, just to give you
an idea of his worth. Still, Arcadia
held him to just 74 yards on the
ground. And when he's not running,
quarterback Destin Nichols threw
for 1,148 yards in 10 games, and 17
see how far the seniors can lead
Frostproof, in the playoffs again for
the first time in three seasons.

Quarterback Zack Jenkins and Jake
Smith are inspirational on and off
the field. They also need to be mis-
take free Friday night. Frostproof
must at least battle to a draw of the
up-front battles on both sides of the
ball. Lamar Bobb kicked better last
week than his debut two weeks ago.
THE SKINNY: This is not the
Berkeley Prep Frostproof fans re-
member when they were divisional
foes in 2007 and 2008. Frostproof
won both of those matchups by
scores of 43-0 and 25-7. That was
then.... Two teams had one common
foe in 2011, DeSoto. Frostproof beat
the Bulldogs, 8-6, while Bucs hung
a 35-7 loss on them. Bulldogs eked
into the playoffs, while Berkeley Prep
steamrolled in. Still, if Bulldogs play
up to their potential, and make as
few mistakes as they did last week
against Auburndale in terms of pen--
alties and turnovers, they could hang
around long enough on the road to
make it interesting late.

Passion for movies leads to hit podcast show

On any given day, Jamey DuVall has
to zip home on his lunch break from
his day job at Watkins Clinic to chat
on the phone with Brian De Palma,
Francis Ford Coppola, Jeff Goldblum or
James Cameron. Since forming Movie
Geeks United, the most popular movie-
themed podcast on the Internet and
iTunes, DuVall has more than 600 inter-
views under his belt and a following of
nearly 2.5 million loyal listeners.
"I was 12 years old when I first fell in
love with cinema after watching 'One
Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest,'" said
DuVall, 37, from Lakeland. "It moved
me like no movie I had ever seen and
I realized the power of art. From there
Started doing plays and eventually
graduated from the Harrison Arts Cen-
ter in 1991. I have always loved acting
and my fascination with movies kind of
led me to where I am today."
Movie Geeks United began with
rather humble intentions four years ago
with DuVall and two other friends, Chris
Whetton and Jerry Dennis, deciding
to take a shot at Blog Talk Radio. What
could be better than a few buddies
who are fanatics about movies to reach
a wide audience on the Internet and
iTunes talking about movie releases and
the world of cinema from the comfort
of home? DuVall had the answer to that.
"Very quickly I realized I could try
to make it into something a bit more
ambitious and actually invite filmmak-
ers to discuss their work with us," said
DuVall. "I used to fight for every guest,
but now the publicists come to us with
their clients roughly 90 percent of the
The show offered a unique forum
where interviews would run up to or
exceed 30 minutes, which is longer
than most outlets, and goes beyond
the norm of covering just new releases.
Programs shine a spotlight and pay trib-
ute to specific films, as well as directors
and actors, including such greats as Al
Pacino, David Lynch, Sidney Lumet and
Brian De Palma.
"We try to think outside the box as
often as we can," said DuVall. "One of

Jamey Duval stands before a Cobb theater. He started his own web show he does from his home
in Lakeland. It now attracts up to 3 million viewers around the world.

our most popular series is our Summer
of the '80s programs. Each summer for
the past three years, we've reviewed
the film releases from the summer 25
years previously, and speak to many of
the talents involved in those films. For
lovers of '80s nostalgia, it's paradise to
hear conversations with people like
Dee Wallace from E.T. and Cujo, or Lea
Thompson from Back To The Future."
When DuVall is not lining up inter-
views, planning shows, and going live
on air with film legends, he holds down
a 9 to 5 job working with the market-
ing department at Watkins Clinic in
Lakeland where he has been for the
last six years. As much as he dreams of
one day supporting himself full-time
with the Movie Geeks United show, he
finds great fulfillment in writing news
releases and videotaping interviews
with doctors as his main bread and
butter since it allows him to work in a
creative environment. The only draw-
back, DuVall said, is after working a full
day and going home to devote up to six
hours on the show, it leaves little time

for anything else.
"Then again, when you get to talk to
the best actors and filmmakers in the
business from your own living room
and share it with the rest of the world, I
couldn't think of anything else I'd rather
be doing with my time," said DuVall.
After conducting hundreds of inter-
views, DuVall recalls some of the more
memorable moments. One that stands
out in his mind was a taped interview
DuVall did with director Brett Ratner
(Rush Hour) for their popular "Director
Series." This particular show focused on
the films and career of the acclaimed
and controversial French-Polish film
director, actor, producer and screen-
writer, Roman Polanski (Rosemary's
Baby, Chinatown). The interview was
taped just hours before Polanski's arrest
in September of 2009 for the sexual
abuse of a 13-year-old girl back in 1977.
In Ratner's interview with DuVall, he
revealed that he was putting together
a sequel to "Roman Polanski: Wanted
and Desired," which examined the case
in painstaking detail. The timing of his

news along with the arrest of Polanski
put Movie Geeks in the forefront as the
world heard of the legendary movie
producer's arrest.
Another "wow" moment for DuVall
came when Brian De Palma, a favorite
director of DuVall's and his crew, had
listened to a tribute show Movie Geeks
United did in honor of his work dur-
ing the first few months of the show.
De Palma was anxious to be a guest
on their show and later responded
how much he liked the "geeks" and the
program. The De Palma show ultimately
ended up being sourced in an upcom-
ing book which celebrates and exam-
ines his classic horror film "Carrie."
Other greats that DuVall has inter-
viewed include actor Robert DuVall, Jeff
Goldblum, and the director of Titanic ,
and Avatar, James Cameron. A personal
guest highlight that DuVall still pinches
himself over was with someone who
didn't involve movies at all namely
Barry Manilow. DuVall listened to his
music while growing up and attended
over a dozen concerts over the years.
When one of the publicists DuVall
worked closely with presented him with
the opportunity to interview Manilow
about his latest CD release, DuVall
jumped at the chance and told Manilow
how much he admired his talent.
Just when you think that DuVall has
done it all with founding a mega-hit
podcast show on the internet and
speaking with hundreds of acclaimed
stars, he does admit that there is some-
thing he has yet to accomplish that is
number one on his "bucket list."
"There is one dream guest that I
would give anything to interview and
have been trying to do just that for the
last five years," said DuVall. "Actor Al
Pacino would be the ultimate. I won't
give up until I can personally ask him
about the craft of acting."

Polk County Family Week kicks off for fifth year

The Family Reunion started Saturday and runs
through the end of the week. Celebrating its fifth year,
Family Week is a week of activities and events are
designed to unite, honor, and celebrate families.
"We want to recognize the different cultures in our
community and celebrate our own heritages," ac-
cording to Lori Waters, founding chair of Polk County
Family Week and Director of Public Affairs for The
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. "It is our
hope Polk County will unite and see ourselves as a
large, extended family that supports and appreciates
each other."
A kickoff event was at Central Park in Winter Haven
Saturday and it included a cultural parade, cultural
entertainment, bounce houses, fun booths and
informative booths to create awareness of resources
available to families in Polk County. The kickoff also
had a free pet-friendly 5K or 1 Mile Run/Walk.
Bears for Joyce, a teddy bear drive, will continue
this year.
"My mother Joyce passed away last year after a long
battle with cancer," said Waters. "This drive began as
a way for me to honor her memory but has become
a way to share love and comfort with our community
by participating. We too can feel love and comfort in
our lives as we give bears to hug."
Thursday is "Be the Best Neighbor Day."
"This is my favorite part of FamilyWeek each year. I
have a vision of seeing everyone in our county think-
ing about being kind and doing service for each other
that day. Maybe making cookies for their neighbor,

letting someone go in front of them at the grocery
check-out, even just to smile," said Waters.
Get free admission with the donation of a new
or gently loved book to Bok Tower Gardens from
8 a.m.-5 p.m. The gardens is at 1151 Tower Blvd. in
Lake Wales.
Family Fun Day is on Friday. There is a free movie
in the Park is available in Haines City.
The YMCA's will be open to all Polk families. The
Arts Ensemble located at 1000 American Superior
Blvd. in Winter Haven is offering free painting also
for Polk families. Libraries throughout the county are
hosting fun, free activities for families.
"This is a day to just have fun and relax with your
family. "Wholesome recreation is an essential part of
a successful family," said Waters.
There are hundreds of service ideas on the website
of ways we can be the best neighbor. Participants
can share the kind act that they do on this day on the
Facebook page of Polk County Family Week to be en-
tered in a drawing for prizes sponsored by State Farm.
The website is at www.polkcountyfamilyweek.com.
Updates are continually being added to the website,
Waters said.
"As we celebrate Polk County Family Week, Heart-
land for Children acknowledges families are the foun-
dation for healthy communities. We also recognize
the importance of supporting parents in their role
as they nurture, value and develop our community's
children," Teri Saunders, CEO of
Heartland for Children said.

Bears for Joyce is returns this week as part of Family Week. Lori
Waters started the drive in memory of her mother who died of
cancer, it is a drive to get teddy bears to distribute.

PSC mourns loss of former president

Teachers and administrators at Polk
State College paused to recognize
and remember former President Dr.
Maryly VanLeer Peck, whose legacy
includes a heightened presence for
the college and its dynamic athletics
Peck, 81, died Nov. 3 in Palm
Beach Gardens. Funeral services will
take place at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday,
Nov. 18 at St. Mark's Episcopal
Church in Palm Beach Gardens.
Peck was named the second presi-
dent of Polk State then Polk Com-
munity College in 1982, becoming
one of the first females to lead an
institution of public higher education
in the state.
"It is an honor to walk in herfoot-
steps," said Polk State College Presi-
dent Dr. Eileen Holden. "Maryly was
a true pioneer, and I know that she
helped blaze a path that has certainly
impacted my own career, as well as
the prospects for many other lead-
ers within Florida's systems of higher
While becoming one of the first
females to lead a public higher edu-
cation institution in Florida is signifi-
cant, it also was not the first time or
last that Peck would make history
At a time when many colleges and
universities didn't admit women,
Peck was determined to achieve
the highest levels of education. She
earned her bachelor's degree from
Vanderbilt University in 1951, be-
coming its first woman to earn an
engineering degree. She went on to
earn both a master's and a doctorate
degree in engineering from the Uni-
versity of Florida, becoming the first
woman to earn those degrees in the

university's history.
She began her career in the aero-
space industry as a research engineer
for the Naval Research Laboratory in
Washington, D.C., and Rocketdyne
Corp. in Calif.
Her interest in academia eventu-
ally prevailed, however,
and she became the first
female dean of the Col-
lege of Business and
SApplied Technology at
T the University of Guam
and founder and dean
of what is now Guam
PECK Community College. She
also held positions at
Arizona's Cochise College, Campbell
College in North Carolina, the Uni-
versity of Florida, and the University
of Maryland.
She took the helm of Polk State
during a time of high unemployment
in the county and declining enroll-
ment at the college. Undaunted, she
embraced Polk State's ambitions of
creating a campus in Lakeland, and
during her inauguration announced
plans for a joint-use campus off U.S.
98 South that would be shared with
the University of South Florida.
The first building on the Lakeland
campus was completed within the
next several years, and by the col-
lege's 25th anniversary, it served more
than 1,900 students. The opening of
the Lakeland campus contributed
to a period of bustling growth at the
college, and in 1989 Peck announced
that total enrollment stood at more
than 6,000, the highest in the col-
lege's history.
The college's students came to
study an ever-expanding slate of

programs. Among those added during
Peck's tenure were Health Informa-
tion Management, Physical Therapist
Assistant and Occupational Therapy
Peck also focused her efforts on
bolstering the college's financial
standing. She was instrumental in
raising money for the Polk State
Foundation and seeking state and
federal grants. The college's first
successful capital campaign was
completed during her 15 years as
president, and the number of Polk
State scholarships also increased
A former competitive swimmer who
often spoke about the importance
of sports, Peck was also a passion-
ate supporter of Polk State's athletic
She oversaw the college's adjust-
ments to abide by the 1984 Educa-
tion Equity Act, which required equal
athletic opportunities for men and
women. Four years later, the college's
athletics offerings included men's and
women's basketball, women's volley-
ball and men's baseball. Softball was
also established during her time as
In addition to expanding the
athletic options for students, Peck
also aimed to improve the facilities
in which they played. She helped
to form a partnership with the City
of Winter Haven to create a softball
complex on college-owned prop-
erty, and she pushed to have lights
installed at the college's baseball
She also steered more money to
the athletics program, recognizing
that increased funding would aid in

recruiting efforts.
"Maryly VanLeer Peck got us an
athletics program," said Athletic Di-
rector Bing Tyus. "She took the steps
to make us competitive. Now we're
not just competitive, we're winning."
For her support of the college's ath-
letic programs, she was inducted into
the college's Athletic Hall of Fame in
Peck, described by many at Polk
State as a trailblazer and visionary,
also led the way for technological
advancements at Polk State. She over-
saw the introduction of computers
to students and staff members, the
opening of the Teaching/Learning/
Computing centers on both the Lake-
land and Winter Haven campuses,
and the establishment of Polk State's
website, www.polk.edu.
Her retirement from Polk State in
1997 was far from the end of her in-
volvement in education. She worked
for two years as the headmaster at
All Saints' Academy, and established
numerous scholarships at the
Holden praised Peck, not only for
her successful tenure at the helm of
the college but also for the legacy she
nurtured in retirement.
"President Peck remained commit-
ted to the transformative power of
education, and she understood how
the generosity of scholarship bene-
factors changed the storyline for so
many of our students here in Polk
County. Just a week before her death,
I wrote another thank-you note to
her. She was giving right up until the
very end," Holden said.
In 2007, Peck was named to the
Florida Women's Hall of Fame.

Board OKs tuition hike

BOCA RATON (AP) -A nurse anesthe-
sia program at USF is one of the schools in
which a higher tuition will be charged as
the Florida's Board of Governors approved
a tuition hike this week for 18 graduate-
level programs at five state universities.
The board, which oversees Florida's
State University system, approved the
higher tuition rate for specific graduate
programs that are not in critical needs
areas as part of a three-year pilot. The Uni-
versity of Central Florida, Florida Interna-
tional University, Florida State University,
the University of Florida, and the Universi-
ty of South Florida all requested and were
granted the market tuition rates.
The master of science in nurse an-
esthesia at USF has a current tuition of
$26,331; the university proposed increas-
ing it to $57,600. That is about in the
middle of the highest- and lowest-cost

nurse anesthesia programs in Florida.
Budget Committee Chairman Tico
Perez said the higher tuition rate will allow
the university to expand the number of
students enrolled in the program. About
50 percent will go towardundergraduate
"What it does is bring more resources
to the university," Perez said of the new
Also at its meeting Thursday, the board
OK'd a 2012-2025 strategic plan aimed
at strengthening the state's universities,
increasing the number of graduates and
focusing on high needs areas such as sci-
ence, technology, engineering and math
(STEM). The plan calls for increasing the
number of bachelor's degrees awarded
annually from 53,392 to 90,000 in 2025,
and the number of graduate degrees
from 20,188 to 40,000.

Legoland form partnership

Four women are getting free an-
nual passes to Legoland Florida this
year. All for having babies at Winter
haven's Hospital on 11-11-11.
It is part of a promotional event to
celebrate the hospital and Legoland
developing an exclusive partner-
ship where the hospital will be in
the park to provide support for the
health care to visitors of the park.
The announcement was made at
last week's Winter Haven annual
gala where about $575,000 was
raised. The money this year is going
to the Regency Center for Women
and Infants where a new chari-
table fund was established, said Joe
The Regency Center has been the
site of more than 30,000 births since
it opened.
The gala featured artists and a
musical performance by rock star
Eddie Money. Some of the art-
ists who sold works for the Winter
Haven Foundation fund included
impressionist Tinia Clark, a Polk
County resident; Florida Highway-
man Robert Butler; Florida wildlife
and landscape artist Richard Powers
and "speed painter" Tony Trotti, who
creates portraits of celebrities in five
minutes or less.
Guests picked up brushes and
left their own brush strokes on the
paintings, said Jane Waters Thomas,

executive director of the Arts En-
semble of Winter Haven, who is
helped organize the performances.
The partnership between the
hospital and amusement park allows
the facility to place its brand iden-
tity within the Legoland as it sets up
baby care facilities at all Legoland
first-aid stations and at Legoland's
main first-aid clinic.
"By partnering with such a rec-
ognized medical center as Winter
Haven Hospital, Legoland will be

and Adrian Jones,
general manager
of Legoland
Florida, following
the announce-
ment that Winter
Haven Hospital
will serve as the
official hospital for
receiving excellent resources for our
health and safety initiatives within
our park," said Adrian Jones, the
general manager of the park at the
gala. "This partnership is just one of
the ways we are dedicated to being
strong members of this community."
The hospital's president and CEO
Lance Anastasio said, "It reminds us
all of the long history of community
partnerships between businesses
and philanthropists and our not-
for-profit healthcare organization."

Legoland General Manager Adrian Jones
announces that Winter Haven Hospital will be
the official hospital for the theme park.

Another part of the partnership
is the annual Citrus Classic 5K the
Foundation sponsors will be at
Legoland. The spring 2012 event
athletes will run through the
150-acre theme park.

PSC's nursing students association shines

Polk State College's chapter
of the Florida Nursing Students
Association racked up a nim-
ber of honors and distinctions
at the organization's recent
Among those was the elec-
tion of student Lisa Fussell as
president of the FNSA. Her
election means that, for the
first time ever, a representative
from a single institution will
lead both the state's student
and professional nursing as-
While Fussell will steer the
student organization, Polk State
nursing professor Dr. Mavra
Kear was recently elected presi-
dent of the professional orga-
nization, the Florida Nurses
Dr. Annette Hutcherson,
director of Polk State's nursing
department, said the leader-
ship positions are proof of Polk
State's dedication to the nurs-
ing profession.
"It shows the commitment
of faculty and students to the
profession itself- that nursing
is not 'just a job,'" she said.

Also at the convention,
which took place Oct. 27,
Hutcherson was again named
director of the year, having
previously received the honor
in 2009. She was nominated
by Polk's FSNA members, who
cited her ability to support the
organization without compro-
mising its autonomy.
Hutcherson is the first direc-
tor to win the award twice.
"It is an honor to be recog-
nized. All the directors in the
state are worthy," Hutcherson
The Polk State FNSA chapter
was also named Chapter of the
Year at the convention, a title
it has received multiple times
in the past several years. The
Chapter of the Year is selected
based on its level of participa-
tion in various FSNA events.
Polk State President Dr. Ei-
leen Holden hailed the Chap-
ter's achievements.
"These honors affirm the
values that we so often refer-
ence leadership, service,
excellence, integrity and
they are a credit to the stu-

dents involved, as well as to
the faculty mentors who have
invested in the development of
our future healthcare provid-
ers. We are very proud of what
this recognition says about
the award winners, about Polk
State's outstanding Health Sci-
ences programs, and about our
community. When Polk State
wins, Polk County wins. As we
always say, 'We are Polk,'" she
FNA Executive Director and
FNSA consultant Willa Fuller
also congratulated Polk State
on its success.
"The program director,
faculty and students at Polk
State College have a history of
dedication and enthusiasm in
its participation and commit-
ment to the Florida Nursing
Students Association," she
"Support from the director
and faculty is one of the keys
to a successful student orga-
nization, so with this kind of
support, it is not a surprise to
have the leaders of both the
FNSA and FNA coming from

Polk State College. Polk will
stand out as one of the most
successful school chapters in
FNSA history."
Among other developments
at the convention:
Polk State's Denise Knapp
was elected second vice presi-
dent of FNSA.
Polk State's Monica Alday
was elected director of district
four, which includes Florida
Southern College, Hillsbor-
ough Community College,
Pasco-Hernando Community
College, Polk State, St. Peters-
burg College, University of
South Florida and University of
Tampa. Fussell was previously
director of the district.
Polk State College nursing
recruiter Lynda Schaak re-
ceived the Childhood Am-
blyopia Prevention Screening
(CAPS) Faculty Award. That
award is given to a faculty
member who has significantly
incorporated CAPS into his or
her curriculum. Amblyopia
is the most common vision
problem among children, and
can lead to poor vision or vi-

sion loss. Schaak also received
the FNSA's Community Health
Award. The CAPS and Commu-
nity Health awards are the only
ones given by FNSA to recog-
nize a faculty member.
The Chapter won the Ac-
tivities Award for staging the
most outstanding events and
activities, including hosting
blood drives, serving meals to
the homeless, and providing
health screenings.
The Chapter won two Break-
through to Nursing awards. One
was for its Miles of Pillowcase
Smiles project, which took
place in September, designated
as childhood cancer month.
That project involved collecting
donations of fabric and sew-
ing pillowcases that were then
donated to ConKerr Cancer.
ConKerr delivers the pillowcases
to children who are undergoing
cancer treatment throughout
the Tampa Bay region. Fussell
said the pillowcases serve as a
reminder to kids that someone
cares about them. The Polk
State FSNA sewed 50 pillow-
cases in September.

BRMC fair is all about health

It's not a new kids'show character with purple teeth. But it is a way to check
out your handwashing skills. Visitors to the Bartow Regional Health Fair Nov.
10 first rubbed a lotion on their hands that simulated ooky germs, shown
here. Then they washed their hands and came back to see how well they did.
When their washed hands were put back under the ultraviolet light, there
was much less purple than this, but it was easy to see spots they'd missed.

41 In honor of cancer
survivors, a
butterfly release
was held in the
garden during
a special event
hosted at LRCC.

LRCC recognized

with beautification award

The Commercial Beautification
Award given by the City of Lakeland
went to the Lake Regional Hospital
Cancer Center.
Through'a letter to LRCC, Mayor
Gow Fields expressed that it was
presented to "... places of businesses
in Lakeland who have made certain
improvements to their property which
have contributed to the overall beauty
of our city."
Lakeland Regional Cancer Center's
landscape design includes a variety
of Florida-friendly plants such as
pentas, knockout roses, and lantanas
and trees such as mature magnolias
and majestic oaks. Robin S. Stewart,
LRCC's manager of clinical research,
said when the landscape and gardens
were designed, it was done with their
patients in mind.

"The original concept was to pro-
vide a peaceful environment where
people, who are going through a dif-
ficult time, could have the calming ef-
fect that nature brings," said Stewart.
Patients, along with their families
and friends, are encouraged to walk
an outdoor path, which will take
them on a mini-nature tour, along-
side Lake Miracle. During clinic
hours, gentle music plays through-
out the landscape and those who
walk the path are bound to see two
Sandhill cranes who have made the
garden their home. The path also
leads to a butterfly garden, which is
maintained by the Lakeland Garden
Club, and features plants given to
LRCC in honor of cancer survivors
and in memory of those who lost
their fight.

Game theory

Hey, kids. Next time Mom or Dad
declares you're spending too much time
playing video games, whip out a copy
of the journal "Computers in Human
Behavior" and cite this Michigan State
University study:
Children who play video games, violent
or not, tend to be more creative.
MSU researchers looked at almost 500
12-year-olds, and concluded that the
more kids played video games, the more
creative they were in other tasks like
drawing pictures or writing stories.
On the other hand, the researchers said
that use of cellphones, the Internet and
computers (other than for video games)
appeared unrelated to creativity.
Body of knowledge
Seven in 100 men have some form of
color blindness, but only one in 1,000
women. The most common form is a red-
green deficiency (an inability to differen-
tiate either red or green).
Number cruncher
A single Wahoo's blackened fish taco
contains 175 calories, 36 from fat. It
has 4 grams of total fat or 6 percent of
the recommended total fat intake for a
2,000-calorie daily diet.
It also contains 54 milligrams of choles-
terol (18 percent); 475 mg of sodium
(20 percent); 19 grams of total carbohy-
drates (6 percent) and 3 grams of fiber
(12 percent).

Stories for the waiting room
A new study out of Johns Hopkins
University says that kidneys from older
donors, those aged 50 to 59, are some-
what more likely to fail within 10 years
compared to transplants from younger
donors. The failure rate was 33.3 percent
to 21.6 percent.
But here's the twist: Kidneys donated
from people older than 70 are no more
likely to fail than those from people in
their 50s. "A lot of people come up to me
and say, 'I wish I could donate a kidney,
but I'm too old,'" said Dorry Segev, an as-
sociate professor of surgery and study au-
thor. "What our study says is that if you're
in good health and you're over 70, you're
not too old to donate a kidney to your
child, your spouse, your friend, anybody.
"It's better if you have a younger donor,
(but) not everyone has a younger donor.
And an older, live donor is better than no
live donor at all."
Never say diet
The world's speed-eating record for
Vienna sausage is 8.31 pounds in 10 min-
utes, held by Sonya Thomas.

"I went on a diet, swore off drinking and
heavy eating, and in 14 days I lost two weeks."
Singer and comedian Joe E. Lewis
