Grant could change

Frostproof schools

If the Polk County School system is.
successful in landing a $10 million fed-
eral grant it is applying for, the nature of
Frostproof's schools and how they serve
students and families could dramatically
That was the message delivered by
new School Superintendent Kathryn

:a meeting with parents of mosdy
Hispanic students at Beri Hill Griffin Jr.

There, are only 15 such'grants to
be awarded nationwide, LeRoy said,
acknowledging that it will be "very com-
petitive" in getting the money, but that
the Polk application has some innovative
things-going for it, and that Frostproof is
exactly the type of situation the grant is
looking to cover, local officials believe.
Among the major changes, should the
funds materialize, is students in schools
on a year-round basis, and that the
school district would provide services

Practice take-out food safety

Dining out or ordering in is often more con-
venient than cooking your own meals. Grabbing
a quick bite to eat on the way home from work
or kids' sports practices is a blessing for many
time-strapped families. However, improper han-
dling of take-out food can put family members
at risk for foodborne illness.
According to a survey from the Institute
of Food Technologists, less than one-third of
American families are cooking their evening meals
from scratch. While the majority of families eat
their meals at home, survey findings indicated
nearly half of those meals are fast food, delivery
or takeout from restaurants or other eateries.
More and more people are turning to fast food
as restaurants have increased their offerings of
healthy meals.
As with any-other type of meal, take-out must
be handled properly to avoid food-borne, illness.
Whether items are delivered or carried home,
care should be given to handling and storage.
Maintain consistent temperature. Hot
foods should remain hot, ideally at 140 F or
Sabove. That tepid delivered pizza may not taste
good cold, and it may be unsafe to eat as well:
Cold food should be kept chilled. Bacteria can
grow quickly, between the temperatures of 40
F and 140 F Foods should not be left at room
temperature longer than two hours. If it is hot
outside, then food should not remain out for
more than one hour or it could begin to perish.
Eat food promptly. There is no
guaranteed way to calculate just how
long take-out food has been in transit
.;; or at an inconsistent temperature.
Therefore, it is adviseable to eat such
food as soon as possible. If you will be
dining later, separate the foods into
smaller containers and put them in the
refrigerator so they will cool down
quickly and resist bacteria growth. Then
reheat food again prior to eating.
Store leftovers in small containers. If
you purchase a roast, turkey, chicken,
or ham, slice and cut it into smaller
portions before storing. This enables
the food to freeze or cool evenly and
more quickly. Date doggie bags and
leftovers so you know when they were

Take-out food needs to be handled and stored safely to prevent illness.
purchased. Discard leftovers within three
to five days of storing them in the
Heat foods evenly in the microwave.
Take-out foods and microwaves seem to
go hand-in-hand. When quickly
heating up take-out foods and leftovers
in the microwave, be sure to heat
everything evenly. If your microwave
does not have a turntable, stir and
rotate food midway through the heating
process. This will eliminate cold spots
that allow bacteria to survive.
Keep in mind that pizza is a
perishable food. Pizza cannot be left
on the counter for a long period of time
and then safely eaten. As with any other
food, pizza that has remained at room
temperature for more than 2 hours
should be thrown out.
Store a cooler in your car. For those
who dine out frequently and bring
home leftovers, having an insulated
lunch bag or small cooler in your
vehicle to preserve the food on the.
way home.
People routinely turn to take-out food and
restaurant dining as a convenient means of sus-
tenance on busy days. Ensuring the foods eaten
are safe can help prevent food-based illness.

An LPD reality check is overdue
An LDrealitycheek is v

Given the rapidity with which the Lakeland Police
Department scandals have unfolded, it is easyto lose
sight of the fact that it was three months ago when
State Attorney lerry Hill first reported immoral on-duty
behavior to the LPD's leadership.
Several members of the department were having
sex drinng duty hours, in the police station and
patrol cars with an employee, Hill reported. Many
of the officers and the administrative employee with
whom they were carrying on a relationship reportedly
admitted to the truth of the allegations.
Thus far, 24 officers, up to the rank of captain, have
been disciplined, including 13 who resigned in the face
of termination.
In other words, this was not the misbehavior of a
couple of rogue rookies.
The officers disciplined apparently did not include
those on the force, including supervisors, who were
aware of the misconduct and did not report it.
Hill's office determined that the veracity of seven
officers was so suspect that they will not be called to
testify by his prosecutors.
Though it received less notice, at about the time Hill
made his report last June, posts on Facebook showed
risque remarks about police misconduct allegedly
writtenby Lakeland's 911 dispatchers on mirrors at an
Orlando bar.
- No disciplinary action was taken.
The most recent scandal developed last week when a
Lakeland officer was charged with two counts of sexual
battery and one count of stalking. The accused officer

Our Viewpoint`
is entitled to his presumption of innocence.
But no such presumption exists in a publicly-aired
radio conversation between a 911 dispatcher and an
officer sharing laughter about a victim's call for help,
saying that she was being pressured to have sex by a
Lakeland police officer.
Was the alleged perpetrator emboldened by the lack
of criminal prosecution of his 24 colleagues? Or was
he reassured by the fact that an officer who required
a young woman to shake her bra after a traffic stop
was disciplined only for failing to key his microphone
during the incident, not for his conduct? As state
attorney, Jerry Hill finally has had enough.
Last week, he wrote a letter to the city's governmental
leadership saying it was apparent that Chief Lisa
Womack is "incapable of leading the Lakeland Police
He said the city's "course of action has been to stone-
wall, filibuster, and hope the problems go away."
City Manager Doug Thomas said Hill's charges are
"both wrong and reckless." Mayor Gow Fields also
defended the city's inaction.
Hill has questioned why the city is spending money
to try to block release of a grand jury report on its
investigation into conduct at the LPD. In its investiga-
tive role, the grand jury is held in our system to be the
ultimate fact-finding authority. Hill said that the police
chief's defense that she inherited her problems from

her predecessors doesn't excuse what has happened on
her watch.
A whisper campaign has suggested that the criticism
of the chief is related to the fact that she is a woman.
Oh, please! Haven't we gotten beyond that lame
response when a woman or a minority is held to ac-
count for his or her performance in public office? Chief
Womnack's response was to say that Hill doesn't like her.
Only Hill and Womack know if that is true.
Even if it is, does that excuse rampant misconduct on
duty, unreliable testimony, and an "Isn't that funny?"
attitude by a dispatcher and an officer over a charge of
sexual intimidation by another officer? It could be per-
suasively argued that our city, like others in Polk County,
doesn't really have a dog in this fight. But Lakeland is
the 500-pound gorilla among Polk's municipalities, and
its widely-publicized problems have attracted endless
unfavorable attention throughout Central Florida.
Visiting motorists driving through Lakeland are
entitled to see an LPD police car without wondering
about the professionalism of the officer behind the
wheel. All Polk Countians have an interest in seeing the
county's largest municipal police force earn the respect
of the entire county.
A reality check at the LPD is long overdue.
The police chief answers to the city manager; the
manager answers to the mayor and the city commis-
sion; the mayor and commissioners answer tothe
Somewhere in that pecking order, corrective action is
long overdue.

Free to be hungry

The word "freedom" looms large
in modem conservative rhetoric.
Lobbying groups are given names like
FreedomWorks; health reform is de-
nounced not just for its cost but as an
Assault on, yes, freedom. Oh, and remem-
ber when we were supposed to refer to
pomnmes frites as "freedom fries"?
The rights definition of freedom,
however, isn't one that, say, FDR would
recognize. In particular, the third of his
famous Four Freedoms-- freedom from
want seems to have been turned on its
head. Conservatives seem, in particular, to
believe that freedom's just another word
for not enough to eat
Hence the war on food stamps, which
House Republicans have just voted to cut
sharply even while voting to increase farm
In a way, you can see why the food
stamp program or, to use its proper
name, the Supplemental Nutritional
Assistance Program (SNAP) has become
a target. Conservatives are deeply commit-
ted to the view that the size of government
has exploded under President Barack
Obama but face the awkward fact that
public employment is down sharply, while
overall spending has been falling fast as
a share of GDE SNAP, however, really has
grown a lot, with enrollment rising from
26 million Americans in 2007 to almost
48 million now.
Conservatives look at this and see what,
to their great disappointment, they can't
find elsewhere in the data, runaway, ex-
plosive growth in a government program.
The rest of us, however, see a safety-net
program doing exactly what it's supposed
to do, help more people in a time of
widespread economic distress.
The recent growth of SNAP has indeed
been unusual, but then so have the

Paul Krugman


times, in the worst possible way. The
Great Recession of 2007-09 was the worst
slump since the Great Depression, and
the recovery that followed has been very
weak Multiple careful economic studies
have shown that the economic downturn
explains the great bulk of the increase in
food stamp use. And while the economic
news has been generally bad, one piece
of good news is that food stamps have
at least mitigated the hardship, keeping
millions of Americans out of poverty.
Nor is that the program's only benefit
The evidence is now overwhelming that
spending cuts in a depressed economy
deepen the slump, yet government
spending has been falling anyway. SNAP
. however, is one program that has been
expanding, and as such it has indirectly
helped save hundreds of thousands of
But, say the usual suspects, the reces-
sion ended in 2009. Why hasn't recovery
brought the SNAP rolls down? The answer
is, while the recession did indeed officially
end in 2009, what we've had since then is
a recovery of, by and for a small number of
people at the top of the income distribu-
tion, with none of the gains trickling down
to the less fortunate. Adjusted for inflation,
the income of the top 1 percent rose
31 percent from 2009 to 2012, but the real
income of the bottom 40 percent actually

fell 6 percent. Why should food stamp
usage have gone down?
Still, is SNAP in general a good idea?
Or is it, as Paul Ryan, the chairman of
the House Budget Committee, puts it, an
example of turning the safety net into "a
hammock that lulls able-bodied people to
lives of dependency and complacency."
One answer is, some hammock: last
-year, average food stamp benefits were
$4.45 a day. Also, about those "able-bod-
ied people": almost two-thirds of SNAP
beneficiaries are children, elderly or
disabled, andmost of the restare adults
with children.
Beyond that, however, you might think
that ensuring adequate nutrition for chil-
dren, which is a large part of what SNAP
does, actually makes it less, not more
likely that those children will be poor and
need public assistance when they grow
up. And that's what the evidence shows.
The economists Hilary Hoynes and Diane
Whitmore Schanzenbach have studied the
impact of the food stamp program in the
1960s and 1970s, when it was gradually

rolled out across the country. They find
that children who received early assistance
grew up, on average, to be healthier and
more productive adults than those who
didn't and they were also, it turns out,
less likely to turn to the safety net for help.
SNAP, in short, is public policy at its
best It not only helps those in need; it
helps them help themselves. And it has
done yeoman work in the economic crisis,
mitigating suffering and protecting jobs
at a time when all too many policymakers
seem determined to do the opposite. So
it tells you something that conservatives
have singled out this of all programs for
special ire.
Even some conservative pundits worry
that the war on food stamps, especially
combined with the vote to increase farm
subsidies, is bad for the GOP, because it
makes Republicans look like mean-spirit-
ed class warriors. Indeed it does. And that's
because they are.

How to make a home

hndicap accessibe.....

Many homeowners have found
themselves scrambling to make their
homes handicap accessible after a
sudden injury or illness. In addition,
some homeowners have found
themselves looking to make adjust-
Sments to their homes in anticipation
of welcoming elderly, less mobile
relatives into their homes.
Converting a home into a hand-
icap-accessible space can seem
like a daunting task that requires
adjustments to nearly every part of
the house. While the extent of those
adjustments depends on. the individ-
ual who needs to be accommodated,
some of the areas homeowners must
address when making their homes
handicap accessible are univer-
sal regardless of the individual's
A home's entryways often must be
addressed when making the home
more handicap accessible. Portable
ramps can be a affordable option
and are often an ideal for those
who only need to make temporary
adjustments, such as when a resident
suffers an injury that requires he or
she spend some time in a wheelchair.
When the adjustments will just be
temporary, a folding wheelchair
might be necessary, as the doorways
might not be able to fit a standard
wheelchair that doesn't fold.
When adjustments figure to be per-
manent, homeowners might need to
expand the doorways in their homes.
Contractors typically recommend ex-
panding doorways to at least 32 inch-
es, which provides some maneuver-
ability when wheelchairs, which are ,
typically between 24 and 27 inches
wide, are entering the home.-
Doorways at the most commonly
used entryways, including front doors
and doors to the bathrooms as well as
the individual's bedroom, will likely
need to be widened.
The bathroom might be the area of
the home that needs the most atten-
tion. Slippery conditions common to
bathrooms can make things especial-
ly difficult for people in wheelchairs

or with disabilities. Grab bars should
be installed in tubs and shower stalls
and next to toilets.
But grab bars aren't the only ad-
justment homeowners should make
in the bathroom as they attempt
to make a home more handicap
accessible. Safety treads, which can.
provide a secure, slip-free surface on
the floors of showers and tubs, can
be installed. Add a hand-held shower
head to the shower stall to make
it easier for those with a disability
to shower. Portable transfer seats,
which enable wheelchair-bound men
and women to transition from their
chairs to showers and bathtubs, can
be purchased and kept in or near the

Water fixtures
An often overlooked adjustment
homeowners must make when
transforming their homes into
handicap-accessible spaces concerns
the sinks throughout the home.
Disabled persons may find it difficult
to access faucets on sinks throughout
the home, especially when there are
vanity cabinets beneath the sinks.
Replacing such sinks with pedestal
sinks can improve maneuverability,
but make sure such sinks are lower
to the ground than standard pedestal
sinks. A sink that's just a few inches
lower than a standard sink is consid-...
erably more accessible to people in
Closets are rarely hanfidicap acces-
sible. Homeowners can address this
issue by creating multi-level closet
spaces so individuals can place their
clothes at accessible heights. Closet
shelves can be lowered and doors can
be widened so disabled persons can
easily manage their wardrobes. In
addition, consider installing a light
inside the closet and make sure the
light switch can be easily reached
from a wheelchair.
Making a home more handicap
accessible can be a significant
undertaking, but many of the adjust-
ments homeowners must make are
small in scale and won't take long to

Converting a home into a handicap-accessible space can seem like a daunting task that requires
adjustments to nearly every part of the house.

..-COLTS kicked off

Free bus rides for public school students already

has 36 percent of those eligible signed up


Dozens of Polk County high school
students joined a cadre of city, county and
transit officials Monday as they formally
launched a program that lets the students
ride county public transit system buses
Only the second such program in the
nation, the COLTS, or Community of
LearningTIansportation Services, program
is free to any high schooler whose parents
have signed a permission slip OKing their
use of the public transportation system.
The program involves buses belonging
to the Citrus Connection in the greater
Lakeland area, WHAT (Winter Haven Area
Transit) in the Winter Haven area and the
Polk County Transit System which covers
the remainder of the county.
According to Polk County Schools
Transportation Director Rob Davis,
the county school board chipped in
- $47,000 from its transportation budget
for the first year of the program. Transit
Director Tom Philips said Monday the
school board, the transit authorities and
the county had been in talks for "about
a year" before the program informally
kicked off this summer for "a trial run."
Philips said the program was opened
to some 600 students involved in
summer learning programs and garnered
about 250 riders during the six-week

Polk County Transit Director Tom Philips and
Hanison School of the Arts student Ca'Rinthya
Johnson talked about the COLTS program Monday.
trial period. As of the formal opening
on Monday at the Harrison School of
the Arts, there were more than 10,000 of
Polk's 28,000 eligible high school riders
signed up.
Students interested in using the bus
-service must have the signed permission
slip and a stick-on decal on their student
ID cards to ride the bus free.
'All they have to do is get on the bus,
show the driver their sticker and they're
ready to go," Philips explained. Without
the sticker, a student rider will have to
pay the fare, he added. Students may ride
the buses any time on any day regardless
of whether they are going to or from a
school program.
Superintendent of Schools Kathryn
LeRoy claimed Monday was "an exciting

County Commission Chair Melony Bell
touted the collaborative effort the COLTS
program represents.
"This is the sign of a village coming -
together, a reaf collaborative effort to
help our leaders of tomorrow," she said.
"When I was in the school system,
there were so many students who
couldn't participate in sports or af-
ter-school programs," explained County
Commissioner Ed Smith. "They just
had no way to get home. Now they have
the opportunity to do it and I'm elated
about it. This is a fantastic day for Polk

the ceremonies during their lunch break
and many raised their hands when
asked if they had taken advantage of
the program. One Harrison student,
Ca'Rinthya Johnson has been taking
advantage of the free program since
school started in August.
"I take it from school to my af-
ter-school job," she said, "and anytime I
need to go somewhere. My mom works
so it was hard to get involved in anything
before this became available. I love it"'
Less than six weeks into the program,
ridership on the county's buses has gone
from "about 60 students per week to into
the thousands," said Bell.

Texting while driving now illegal in Florida

This is
On Tuesday Florida joined most states in
banning texting while driving.
While it took five years to become illegal
and the state is now the 40th to make it
that way, the ban is a secondary offense,
meaning drivers can only be cited for a
violation if they are pulled over for some-
thing else.
The ban is one of more than two dozen
laws that went into effect Oct. 1 in Florida
passed by the Republican-controlled
Previous attempts stalled in the face
of House Republican opposition, with
conservative members worried about
government intrusion into people's lives.
However, to people on the street in Polk
County, it just makes sense.
"I think it should be a primary offense,"
said Sheila Davis. "People of the younger
generation you can see doing it all the time
and they almost get into accidents... they
just take their eyes off the road.",
In some smaller towns it may be a-
bit easier to text while driving she said,
however, she has seen drivers with small
children in the back seat on busier roads
"where the traffic is heavy like in Tampa,
where ifs just crazy."
In many ways, the law aims at that
younger generation. And despite it being a
second offense the bill's sponsor said it will
still make the roads safer.
Sen. Nancy Detert, R-Venice and the
sponsor of the legislation, says it will still
act a deterrent among teenagers just
starting to drive.
"My whole purpose in the law is just to
be able to tell teenagers that texting while
driving is against the law," said Detert,

one of a dozen bills
who visited a Sarasota County high school
Tuesday to point out the new ban.
Meanwhile, Rep. In' Slosberg, D-Boca
Raton, has already filed a bill (HB 5) that
would make it illegal for anyone younger
than 18 to text, talk on a cellphone or
use any other type of electronic device
while driving. The bill makes exceptions
for emergency communications and for
vehicles stopped "outside the normal flow
of traffic."
glosberg, who lost a teenage daughter in
a traffic accident and took up.the cause of
seat-belt enforcement when he first came
to the Legislature in 2000, used a similar
strategyin making the case for Florida
to join the states with primary seat-belt
enforcement laws.
Amber Cook a 15-year-old Lakeland
resident who is learning to drive, said she
sees the danger potential
"I wouldn't do it," she said.
Sixteen-year-oldWilliam Maggert also
said he understands the danger saying, "If
you have passenger and you have to text,
give him the phone."
Other area drivers feel they can't
understand why they have to text behind
the wheel
"I saw something last week I thought
was unbelievable. I watched this kid in a
convertible Jeep and he had gone about
200 yards looking down the entire time,"
said Chad Barron. "When you're driving
there's a lot you have to be responsible
for... it's not a right, it's a privilege."
Lisa Cook said while driving on South
Florida in Lakeland, she didn't see a wreck
in this incident but was waiting for one to
happen when she saw it
"Just yesterday I saw someone drive right
through a light after it changed," she said

District to hold series of hog hunts

Southwest Florida Water Management
District land managers plan to holda se-
ries of hog hunts on District land during
the 2013-2014 feral hog dog hunt season
to help reduce the wild hog population.
The District will implement a three-
phase hunting system. The first two
phases of hunts will have separate
registration processes. Top producers
from Phase 1 will be awarded free hunts
for Phase 2; top producers from Phase
2 will be asked to participate in hog
management activities for Phase 3.

Phase 1 Hunts
Registration will occur on Oct. 7,
2013, beginning at 9 a.m.
Includes nine hunts that occur
October 2013 through January 2014.
Permits are transferable.
Top two producers on each hunt,
with the exception of Conner Preserve
and Coker Prairie, will be awarded a
non-transferable registration to the
same hunt location in Phase 2, free of

She also has met with civic and com-
munity leadership with speaking engage-
ments at the Lakeland, Haines City and
Frostproof chambers of commerce as well
as service organizations like the Kiwanis
and Rotary clubs.
One activity that drew kudos not only
from the board but from the non-instruc-
tional personnel's union was an early
morning visit to the district's maintenance
shops to talk with support staff.


Because it would be a school-based
program, even non-documented stu-
dents would be eligible to be part of the
comprehensive package of services that
would be offered, and potentially, would
cover youngsters from birth through
graduation from high school.
She said the year-round component,
doesn't mean 52 weeks of classes. The
summer session, which would last for
about six or seven weeks, would be more
geared to be fun and give opportunities
for field trips. Nonetheless, they would
still be regular school days in terms of
time spent in the classroom.
"It will be a great experience for
them," she said. "All of the national
research says that if you can add 300
hours to either extend their day or
extend their year, that the likelihood of

"She knows it's not just the classroom
teachers, ir's also about the custodial staff,
the cafeteria workers and administration
support people," Mululenax said. With a
schedule jammed with meetings, LeRoy
told the board, it has been hard to get to
as many of the county's 166 schools as she
originally had hoped.
The school district's website Thursday
launched a "Tr'ace Her Tacks" program
where users can see which schools she has
visited and when.
One area that still needs improve-
ment, said Board Member Tim Harris,
is the diversity of both leadership and
in the classroom. LeRoy's plan called for

their success increases greatly."
She said that component of the
plan will actually happen with or
without the grant, since next summer,
LeRoy is planning on placing one of
her "Superintendent's Academies" in
Frostproof that will provide many of the
same learning opportunities and support
that the grant would create.
SLeRoy said the district is hoping to hear
by January or February if their request is
She said the other non-educational
-components of the grant program are
very attractive options as well.
"What's really neat about it, we're
going to offer other services. We're
going to offer medical services, services
from birth to age 5, we'll have dental
services, services for eyeglasses, social
and emotional services, nutritional
services for children. That's what a
full-service approach is," she said. "Not
only does it educate our children, it
wraps around other services to ensure

producers will be free of charge and
All 14 Phase 2 top producers will
be offered participation in a minimum

Harris said the percentage of Hispanic
students countywide was not reflected in
either the classroom or in administration.
Harris said she "needs to focus on that."
LeRoy explained that the district's
Human Resources Department was
working with the Ana Mendez University in
Puerto Rico to lure more Hispanic teachers
and administrators to the county, and that
would stay on her priority list.
One of her biggest hurdles since taking
over the district was digging the system out
of a budgetary hole. The system was about

Children would all be issued iPads
under thegrant, she said, and parents
would have access to support for that
type of technology as well.
"We believe we're very competitive,"
LeRoy said about the chances of actually
getting funded. "We fit what they're
looking for and we think we've been
pretty innovative about the grant."

ESOL, served as LeRoy's translator to the
crowd of about 100 parents and students.

enrollment is almost exactly 50 percent

She also told parents that the district
is looking to add more Hispanics to the
central staff so that when parents call,
they can be helped in the language of
their choice.

LeRoy added.

Frostproof's Eric Richardson gets ready to jump on this loose ball during junior varsity football
action last week at Faris Brannen Stadium. The Bulldogs, who opened the year with three
straight wins, hosted Sebring. The Blue Streaks varsity had a bye last week, so some of their
players played in the JV game. Frostproof held a 30-114 lead, but couldn't hold it in the second
half and eventually dropped its first game of the season, 34-30. On this play, a big hit by Donique
Rosius (No. 9) caused the fumble.

Any running back is only as good as the big guys up front who open the holes for them. Here,
Frostproof linemen Shane Scmidt (No. 54), Brian Becerra (No. 51) and Brice Smith (No, 55) make
sure there is plenty of room to rumble for teammate Ricky McFarlane.

Gang tackling is a beautiful thing to a defensive coach, so this play featuring Adrian Centeno
(No. 56), Eric Richardson (No. 8) and Donique Roius (No. 9) make Frostproof coaches smile a little
last Thursday at Farris Brannen Stadium. All three of the team's remaining games are on the road
this fall, at Avon Park Thursday, at DeSoto Oct. 10 and at Mulberry on Oct. 17.

ite Outing looks to tiptoe up the near sideline in action last week against Sebring. The Frost-
of JV team came into that game with a perfect three-win start to the season, which included
a 20-8 win over Fort Meade, with an impressive effort in the red zone by the Bulldog defense, and
a 16-0 shutout of take Placid which included a goal-line stand to preserve the blanking.

Frostproof's Devil Lewis left one would-betackler in his wake, and carries another on his back, in
junior varsity football action last week at Faris Brannen Stadium. The Bulldogs no-huddle offense
proved to be explosive, but one of two mistakes against a bigger than usual JV team that Sebring
brought allowed the Blue Streaks to pull out a late win.

Polk State Theatre will kick off its 2013-14 season on Oct. 2 with Pride & Prejudice. Polk State Theatre is using the works of artist
Leonid Afremov to illustrate its posters and fliers this season, including this work, titled Tango 2, to promote Pride & Prejudice.

Polk State Theatre Kicks Off 2013-14
Season with "Pride & Prejudice"

'Polk Sfate'Theatre will kick off its
love-themed season with the Jane
'Austen classic Pride & Prejudice.
The show will run Oct. 2-5
and 9-12 at the Polk State Winter
Haven YFine Arts Theatre, 999 Ave.
H N.E. All shows are at 7:30 p.m.
Shows are free to College students
and employees with ID, and all
high school students. Tickets for
the general public are $8. The Oct.
2 show is a free preview.
Polk State Speech and Theatre
Professor Paul Carbonell said this
is the first time the department's
performances will follow a season-
long theme.
"It reflects a deeper level
of planning within Polk State
Theatre, and a more cohesive
approach to the season among the
directors and set designers," said
Carbonell, who is the producer of
Pride & Prejudice.
For the first themed season, he
said, "love" was a natural choice.
"Everyone can relate to love,
audience members and perform-
ers alike," he said.

"Even our students, who may
be inexperienced in romantic
love, can channel the feeliiings of
love they have known into their
performances. They may be think-
ing about beloved grandmother
who died, but they're still able to
conjure those emotions to connect
with their characters."
And for a season all about love,
Carbonell added, Pride & Prejudice
is a perfect fit.
"This is a timeless romance,"
he said. "This play and this story
will be done forever. It is literally a
cornerstone of English literature.
It's going to live on for generations,
so why not expose our students
and our community to it."
Based on Austen's novel, Pride
& Prejudice is a love story set
among the British upper class of
the 1800s. It's an enduring tale full
of romance, scandal and humor
that inspired a 2005 film version
starring Keira Knightley.
Polk State Theatre will put a
couple creative twists on the play.
For one, it will be performed in an

intimate, "in the round" format,
vith just 115 seats positioned
around a platform atop the Fine
Arts Theatre stage.
.The setup of the show is meant
to complement the delivery of the
play. Polk State is using an adapta-
tion by British director Marcus
Goodwin. Rather than following a
dramatized script, it is performed
in a style called activated narra-
tive, which means every word of
the story is acted out.
"Because of the style, we
wanted it to be very intimate,"
said Director Ilene Fins. "For the
audience, it's going to feel like they
dived right into the book."
Taken together, the staging and
style of Polk's Pride & Prejudice
may be unlike anything else audi-
ences have experienced, Fins said.
Polk State Theatre's love-filled
season will continue with The
Fantasticks in November, Brighton
Beach Memoirs in February, and
William Shakespeare's Romeo &

Polk State Approved

For Bachelor's

Degree in Aerospace

Polk State College has received approval for
its fourth baccalaureate degree, the Bachelor of
Science in Aerospace Sciences.
The State Board of Education in September
granted unanimous approval for the new degree.
The College plans to launch the new degree
in fall 2014. It will be the first public college or
university in the state to offer the degree.
"This is a huge milestone for the College and
the region we serve," said Polk State President
Eileen Holden.
"Our Aerospace Program was developed to
address, on a local level, an international need
for pilots, flight instructors, and other aviation
personnel. Now, with the bachelor's degree, we
willbe able to provide more advanced training
to better address those needsand prepare our
students for successful careers in aviation."
The Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Science

As Polk State alumna Renee Heacock knows
well, a single moment can change everything.
For Heacock, "the moment" came on a Fort
Myers soccer field and led her to play for Polk.
Now, in her work as a Registered Nurse at
Lakeland Regional Medical Center, Heacock
makes moments count for her patients,
comforting them when she doesn't have to,
reassuring them when
they need itmost. PRIDE
"I just always ask PRID
myself, 'Would I want of
my nurse to treat me like O
this?'" said Heacock. "It's POLK
about treating others
like you would want to
be treated."
Heacock, 25, a resident of Lakeland, grew up
playing soccer in Tirusuille, defending against
dithe opposing team as a stopper and loving
every second of the game.
As high school graduation approached,
however, Heacock figured her playing days
were done.
"I'm 5'3," and at the time probably only 110
pounds," she said. "I'm not big and powerful,
and I just didn't think I had what colleges were
looking for."
During the State Cup in Fort Myers, where
Heacock was playing with her club team, her
post-high school plans began to change -
and it all started with one conversation with
former Polk soccer coach Bill Read.
"He walked up to me and asked me where
I was going to play the next year," she said. "I
ended up getting a full scholarship and finding
a great place to go to school."
Read. who was at the State Cup to recruit,
said he recognized in Heacock that special
blend of attitude and athleticism.
"She was tenacious and had a lot of spunk,"
Read said. "She's a great girl who always
worked hard."
Playing outside defender, Heacock contrib-
uted to the Eagles going 14-1 and capturing
the Region8 title in 2006. The next season
was even bigger, with the Eagles going 20-3,
capturing the Region 8 and District F title, and
earning a bid to the NJCAA Division 1 National

a special spot in Heacock's heart, she said.
"It was really easy to transition to Polk.
There were maybe 30 students in a class, and
if you needed to ask your professor a question,
you could do it right there in class," she said.
"We had soccer practice every day. Coach
Read was really laidback and calm. He wanted
us to play but also love the game.",
When she completed her Associate in Arts,
Heacock planned on staying at Polk to contin-
ue in a Health Sciences field, but the chance
to play her game for a bit longer lured her to
Florida Southern College. .'
While there, Heacock was named Second
Team All-South by the National Soccer
Coaches Association of America, becoming the
first FSC defender to earn the honor.
It was also at FSC that she decided to study
nursing, a challenging, exciting, fast-paced
field full of opportunities.
She graduated with her Bachelor of Science
in Nursing from FSC in 2010 and went straight
to work in the- emergency department at
In the years since, she's developed a repu-
tation as a nurse who makes time to give a
little extra to her patients even despite her
stressful, nonstop surroundings.
"We work in a very fast-paced environment,
but she manages her time very well," said
Sara Neu, a nursing supervisor at the hospital.
She's able to multitasklso that she cain spend
more time with her patients."


Crump said s rudents who earn the new
degree have a competitive advantage in
the aviadon labor market.
"Abachelor's degree is needed to be:
hired at any major airline," he said.
"Even if you're not trying to get hired
at a commercial airline, having knowl-
edge bey ond just your pilot certificates
will make your resume stand out. On
the Aerospace Administration side, a
bachelors degree is going to be required
for any mid-level or higher position."
Crump added that even those who
didn't earn an associate's degree in
Aerospacebut who hold Federal
Aviation Administration pilot cerdifi-
cations will be able to earn the new
bachelor's degree, preparing them for
career advancement.
Development of the new degree in-
volved months of research and intensive

collaboration Iwith the area aviation
community and other Florida College
System institutions working together as
the Florida College System Aerospace
The College also surveyed its students
and aviation employers to gauge the
need for the new degree.
Among the findings the College sub-
mitted to the state was that, according
to the Florida Department of Economic
Opportunity, there were 8,093 aviation-
related jobs statewide in 2012, with 375
annual job openings projected through

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University,
and the Florida Institute of Technology,

Plus, College research showed that
- with an impending global pilot shortage

- Boeing predicts one million com-
mercial airline pilots and maintenance
technicians will be needed in the next
two decades and other factors at

Polk's Bachelor of Science in
Aerospace Science will go a long way in
addressing that need by offering aspir-
ing pilots, flight instructors and airport
managers the most affordable option in
Florida for attaining a bachelor's degree.
In its degree proposal submitted to
the state, the College included letters of
support from a wide range of airlines

Polk Graduate Receives

Full Scholarship to

Sarah Lawrence College

Mayra Hidalgo Salazar, an undocumented immigrant, graduate
College and has received a full scholarship to attend Sarah Lam
It was moving day for Mayra Hidalgo Salazar
recently, and never had the sight of cardboard boxes
been so sweet.
That's because she was on her way to Yonkers,
N.Y., where in early September she began classes
at Sarah Lawrence College, one of the nation's top
private liberal arts colleges.
It's a destination that for years Hidalgo Salazar, an
undocumented immigrant from Costa Rica, could
only dream of, and one she reached after having
first studied at Polk State College, an institution that
gave her a chance when she needed it most.
"If Polk State College hadn't opened its doors to
me, I don't think I would have any hope of finishing
my education," Hidalgo Salazar said.
Hidalgo Salazar has lived in Lakeland since she
was just six montb.s old, when her family came from
Costa Rica in search of a better life and new oppor-
tunities. Her undocumented status was of little con-
sequence as she grew up, attending Rochelle School
of the Arts and the Lois Cowles Harrison Center for
the Visual and Performing Arts, where she sang and
dreamed of becoming a chorus director.
She graduated from high school in 2009 and was
accepted to Florida State University's vocal perfor-
mance program, but it was also about that time that
all the difficulties that come with being undocu-
mented became her harsh reality.
No law at either the federal or state level bars an
undocumented immigrant from attending a college
or university, said Polk State Director of Student
Enrollment Services and Registrar Kathy Bucklew.
However, as Hidalgo Salazar found, that doesn't
mean it's easy for undocumented immigrants to get
a higher education.
"Think about it... I didn't have a driver's license,
so I couldn't get around town. I didn't have an ID to
get an apartment. And the cost I didn't qualify for
(the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program) or

any financial aid, none of that,"
she said.
With FSU out of reach, Hidalgo
Salazar turned to Polk State.
According to Bucldew, Polk State
currently has about 1,100 interna-
tional students enrolled, and 10 of
those are undocumented.
For those students like
Hidalgo Salazar the College
opens the door to a degree.
"You put in your application like
any other student and you can
attend," Bucklew said. "We really
ed from Polk State do want to help these students."
Arence College. Like at other institutions,
undocumented students at Polk
Sf must pay out-of-state tuition, but
evenstill, the College is still the most affordable
option in Polk.
Indeed, for Hidalgo Salazar, the College was
what she could afford, but once she arrived on
campus, she also found the academic and student
life she craved. She studied in the College's Honors
Program, participated in theStudent Governument
Association at Polk State Lakeland, and was a
member of the College's chapter of SWER, Students
Working for. Equal Rights, an organization that
advocates for immigrant rights. She was also able to
receive a Hispanic Heritage Month scholarship-from
the Polk State Foundation.
"Polk State really served as not only an invigorat-
ing academic outlet, but it also gave me a sense of
progress. If it hadn't been for the opportunity that
Polk State gave me at that time in my life, I feel like I
would have gone crazy," she said.
In 2011, Hidalgo Salazar graduated with her
Associate in Arts degree. A bachelor's degree was
still cost-prohibitive, so she put her education
on hold she didn't know for how long and
threw herself into activism, including serving on
the boards of United We Dream, a national immi-
grant organization, and the Florida Immigration
Last year, a new federal policy, Deferred Action
for Childhood Arrivals, went into effect. It allows
undocumented immigrants under 31, who were
brought to the country before they were 16 and
meet other criteria, to be exempt from deportation
and to apply for a two-year work-permit.
Hidalgo Salazar received her work permit earlier
this year, as well as a modified Social Security card,
which allowed her to get a driver's license.
It was also in 2012 that a personal connection

Hurtin' Highlanders look forward to district matchup

Talented Haines City duo help Hornets buzz past Lake



Rod Shafer will look through his team
bus Friday and be worried about the
number of empty seats it has.
As the head football coach of the Lake
Wales Highlanders, Shafer is facing a
real injury problem. LWHS is trying to
plug holes in every area from offensive
line to quarterback to defensive back to
defensive line..
The Highlanders play at Poinciana
Friday night in a Class 5A, District 10
game. Lake Wales is 2-3 overall but is
tied for first ri the district at 1-0.
"Right now, we're playing with about
half a team," said Shafer. "In all my
years of coaching, I've never gone into
a season with a team that had so much
promise and then had so many injuries.
As a coach, I don't know what to do."
And adding to the problem is a real
possibility that Lake Wales will even lose
a player to suspension.
"This week, we are just trying to survive
a district game. The hard part is not having
any depth. We've got six or seven kids who
have to go both ways," Shafer explained.
"We've gone through years where we
didn't have any injuries. It is so bad that
we have had to stop contact in practice.
We haven't had contact in three weeks.
I really don't want to bring JV kids up.
If we have to bring some up, we will,"
Shafer added.
The Highlanders dressed out 37 play-
ers early in the season. Then they were
down to 35, Now, they are hoping to
field 30. For their first game, their roster
covered the front and part of the back of
a sheet. Now, it is contained on the front
with some room at the bottom.
Among the injured are wide receiver
Marcus Walker, who was the leading
pass catcher; offensive lineman ,
Luke Hiers, who was a sophomore


Lake Wales at Poinciana
WHEN: 7p.m. Friday
RECORDS: Lake Wales is 2-3 overall, 1-0 in Class 5A district play. Poinciana is 2-3 overall, and this istheir
first district game of the season.
WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT POINCIANA: The Tigers are enjoying a little early season success. In fact, with
their two wins, they will at least equal the most number of wins in a season (two), a streak going all the way
back to 2000. Quarterback Johnathan Lindstrom runs a spread offense that will throw the football. At 6-4, 215,
he's got classic QB size. It's not uncommon for Poinciana to run their offense with an empty backfield. Joshua
Lopez can run, however, when called upon. Lost last week at Lake Placid, 14-6, surrendering two touchdowns
in the final four minutes. Two wins this year came against Celebration and Brooksville Central.
WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT LAKE WALES: Tough to tell you who will be where Friday night, in terms of
which players will play what spots, but the Highlanders will show up and play hard, being a district game at all.
Events of theearly part of the season have changed the Highlanders approach a little, but it is likely that even
with depth problems, Lake Wales will have more talent on the field than the Tigers. But the gap isn't as big,
necessarily, as it has been in past years.
THE SKINNY: You wouldn't have thought it when you looked at the schedule before the season began, but;
it's kinda true, this is a fairly big game for both teams. Despite what's gone on, Lake Wales is still the team to
beat in the division. But Poinciana is catching the Highlanders at a vulnerable point, and with the rest of the
division (Mulberry, Tenoroc and Auburndale) all struggling, the Tigers believe they could not only improve their
win total this year, but earn a playoff spot as well. (The top two teams in the district earn playoff berths). So the
Tigers not only have more talent than in past years, but plenty of motivation too. It's probably not enough to
stave off a Lake Wales team that will be pretty motivated too, but it could make for a more entertaining game
than some. Lake Wales will try to power run the football, and Poinciana will throw it all over the lot, so it will
be a contrast in styles to, be sure.

all-American last year; starting quarter-
back Railond Garrett; and starting tight
end Robert Wimbley.
Garrett took most of the snaps last
Friday in a 55-20 loss at Haines City.
Hiers injured a leg in that one, and did
not return to the game after leaving on
a golf cart.
The Highlanders didn't have the
bodies, or enough speed, to catchtwo
of the Hornets top backs, DJ. Law and
Derwin James accounted for six of their
clubs touchdowns, James score on three
runs and Law twice on the ground and
once in the air. After a 14-14 score at the
end of the first quarter, the worn down
Highlanders were outscored 41-6 the
rest of the way.
Alsomissing might be senior receiver
Dedric Brinson.

According to Shafer, last Friday,
Brinson felt he was blocked in the back
on a play but no penalty was called.
Brinson wanted to tell a referee about
it and reached for the ref's shoulder.
But the referee started moving and
Brinson knocked him down. That was
an automatic ejection and might draw a
"We don't know what will happen,"
Shafer said. "The official was looking in
the other direction. On the field, it was
raining so hard that you can't see it in
the films. This could cost Brinson his
senior season, but we hope that won't

Frostproof hopes loss propels Dogs to greater heights

Coaches generally don'tsound real
upbeat after a loss.
And make no mistake, Frostproof
Coach Price Harris would have liked to
come home from Hardee last Friday with
But in many ways, a close 14-12 loss
to an always-good Wildcat team might
just be what the doctor ordered for this
SFriday night's showdown at Faris Brannen
Stadium with Tampa Catholic, undefeat-
ed, ranked, and the team to beat in the
Class 3A, District 4 race in 2013.
Frostproof opened the season 4-0, and
rolled through all of its lesser opponents
without virtually a challenge along the
way. While it looked good on the stat
sheet, it was still tough to assess exactly
how good the Bulldogs might be, or where
there was work to be done.
If the team's reaction after Friday's loss
is an indication, Harris noted, the team
will be a big factor in the district that has
tough Fort Meade, Lakeland Christian and
Berkeley Prep still on the schedule.
"Right after the game, they were ready
to get better," Harris said. "Nobody
pointed fingers. Nobody put the blame
on anybody. We all took responsibility for
we played. That's a great step in the right
direction. They were like 'Coach, I should
have done this, and I should have done
that' And the coaches were saying 'well,
we should have done this, and we should
have done that' It think it's going to be a
good learning experience, the effort that
you're playing at, the level that you're
playing at, has to be right."
One thing that you can always count on
against Hardee is good, solid, fundamen-
tal football, Harris noted.
"I Was concerned going in with their
front seven. They're a great football front
seven," Coach Price Harris said. "They
took away our run game, and we weren't
able to do what we wanted to do. And we
just didn't have a great answer for it, so
we're going back to the drawing board to
get it right and make sure we don't get in
that situation again."
Harris said it wasn't a case that the
Bulldogs were being manhandled up
front, but that most of the battles were a
draw, and that wasn't quite good enough.
"When you're on offense, and you're'
getting stalemated, you're losing the
battle," Harris said. "We've got to fight
for every inch. No one is going to give
you anything. We really only made two
mistakes on defense, and otherwise we
played a fantastic game on defense."
The Wildcats had less than 100 yards
rushing in the game, and more than 60 of
those yards came on just two plays.
A tough Hardee defense stifled the

explosive Frostproof offense during the
first half Friday night at Wildcat Stadium
The Bulldogs came alive in the third
quarter to make it a close game. With
seven minutes left Hardee was leading
14-12, but the visitors would get no closer.
Neither offense could get anything
going on their first possession. Hardee
also went three and out on its second
A 10-yard punt by the Wildcats gave the
Bulldogs great field position at the Hardee
After a short drive Lamar Bobb booted a
37-yard field goal with 4:55 left in the first
period to put the Bulldogs on top 3-0.
The Wildcats got things going on their
next possession. They drove 70 yards to
take the lead on a 16-yard touchdown
pass from Kris Johnson to Tisten Lanier.
Rodrigo Rodriguez kicked the extra
point to put the Wildcats in front 7-3 with
1:39 remaining in the quarter.
Hardee caught the Bulldogs off guard
on the ensuing kickoff. The Wildcats used
a pooch kick that no one from Frostproof
fell on.
Hardee had good field position after
recovering the ball on the Bulldog,40.
They moved inside the Frostproof 20, but
the Bulldogs came up with a big play to
stop the threat.
Harrison Johnson picked off Johnson's
pass for the Bulldogs.
Penalties hurt the Bulldogs once again.
They had major penalties back to back in
the second quarter and at onle point had a
first down and 40 yards to go.
Amazingly, they managed to pick up
the first down and got down to the Hardee
26. On fourth and five a Gaines' pass feD]
The score remained 7-3 at halftime. :
It was the first time Frostproof, which
racked up more than 100 yards in penal-
ties in the opening half, had trailed after
two quarters this season.
The Bulldogs took the second-half kick
and got to the Hardee 40 before turning
the ball over on downs.,
Hardee took over and used only two
plays to march 60 yards. A 59-yard
pass from Johnson to Lanier set up the
Wildcats at the one. Keyonte Holley ran
it in from there. The PAT by Rodriguez
pushed Hardee's lead to 14-3 at the 9:20
mark of the third quarter.
Frostproof started its next possession
at midfield. An interception by Sahmaud
Blandin at the Hardee 2 gave the Wildcats
the ball.
The Bulldogs defense came up with an-
other big play when Johnson was tackled
in the end zone for a safety. The visitors
cut the lead to 14-5 with 5:46 remaining in
the third period.
Frostproof drove 48 yards following


Hardee's free kick after the safety to score
its first touchdown of the game. Cecil
Cherry carried it from two yards out.
Lamar Bobb's extra-point kick closed
the gap to 14-12 with 7 minutes left.
Tampa Catholic comes in on a roll,
including a 39-13 win at home against
Fort Meade two weeks ago.
"They're a very well-coached team,"
Harris said. "It's going to come down

to who makes the most plays and least
amount of mistakes."
One thing is for sure, the Crusaders
shouldn't present any big surprises to the

Harris said. "It's going to be like playing

Tampa Catholic at Frostproof
WHEN: Friday, 7p.m. at Faris Brannen Stadium
RECORDS: Tampa Catholic is4-1,1-0 in district play. Frostproof is 4-1, also 1-0 in district play.
WHATTO KNOWABOUTTAMPA CATHOUCThe Crusaders are ranked No. 2 in the state's Associated Press Florida prep
poll. Rolled through Fort Meade, 39-13.two weeks ago, although the Miners were tied with private school team at half
before injuries and Attrition began to catch up withthem. Quarterback Kyle Ploucher is one of many weapons. Coming off a
16-for-19 performance last week in a 43-0 win over previously unbeaten Cardinal Mooney (a former Frostproof district foe).
Of the 16 catches, there were nine different receivers. Needed overtime in Week two to defeat Clearwater Central Catholic,
13-10, afterfalling in season openerto Madison County, 30-15. TJ. Harrell is one of several backs who have scoring ability.
WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT FROSTPROOF. One of the benefits of some easy games early is the fact that the Bulldogs
have plenty of healthy bodies, which is a plus at the midway point of the season, especially since Frostproofs bye doesn't
come until the last regular season weekend in November. Bulldogs will have the benefit of home field advantage, and they
have the talent to go toe to toe with Crusdaers if they play smart, tough football. Fort Meade matched up well with Tampa
Catholic, but only dressed 26 players forthe game, and when injuries hit in the second halfthey couldn't keep up. Patience
might also be a key for Frostproof, because they'll make some big plays, and probably have a few made against them too.
THE SKINNY: Frostproof could establish themselves as the team to beat in the district with a win. Bulldogs were ranked
No. 6 in Class 3A in lastweek's AP poll, but didn't gamera whole lot of respect on the Gulf Coast it didn't seem when district
realignment put them in with private schools from that area again.
A loss won't kill Frostproofs district playoff hopes, but will mean that two or three teams will end up fighting for a playoff
spotwhile Tampa Catholic likely looks down at everyone else. If Frostproof plays upto its capabilities, this has the chance to
be one of the more entertaining games played at Faris Brannen Stadium in a while.

Warner better, but falls in first home game

The first-ever home game forWarner
University football took place on Saturday
afternoon at Jahna Field on the campus
of All Saints Academy. The game featured
the Royals and Ave Maria University. The
Gyrenes used 20 second half points and
four Royals' turnovers to pick up their
first win of the season (1-2) overWarner
University 27-3.
The loss keeps the Royals winless in
their inaugural season and drops them to
The Royals and Gyrenes played a
scoreless first quarter to open the game.
Warner held the edge in total yards (77)
and time of possession (9:28) in the first
quarter but had nothing to show for it on
the scoreboard. Oscar McGee picked off a
Clayton Uecker pass on Gyrenes first drive
to spark the Royals' defense.
After Uecker connected on a 25-yard
touchdown pass to Karim Bryant, the
Royals answered with a Connor Killeen
26-yard field goal just prior to halftime.
Pierre Chatman set up the scoring drive by
forcing a Uecker fumble.
At halftime with the Gyrenes ahead 7-3,
the Royals held a slight edge in time of pos-
session (15:49) but two turnovers helped
keep the Royals out of the end zone.
Ave Maria took the opening kick-off
of the second half 85 yards for a touch-
down to go ahead 13-3 after missing the
point-after try. The Royals' offense had the

ball for seven drives in the second half but
could not get inside the Gyrenes' 30 yard
line. The, Royals turned the ball over twice
through air and turned the ball over on
downs following a nine play, 40 yard drive
to start the fourth quarter.
The Gyrenes took advantage on one of
the Warner turnovers and turned it into six
points, their final touchdown of the game
at 12 minute mark in the fourth quarter.
The second half was not kind to the Royals
as they churned out 87 total yards while
giving up 216 yards to the Gyrenes. The
Royals finished the game with 226 total
yards on 61 plays.
Andrew Rodriguez posted season-highs
in attempts, completions and yards. The
freshman went 20-of-37 for 177 yards but
was sacked three times and tossed three
interceptions. Trey Schley added one more
catch to his first half tally and finished with
eight catches for 84 yards. Marcel Jenkins
and JamariWalker had 47 of the Royals' 49
rushing yards.
Loronza Smith made his return to the
defensive lineup for the Royals and had an
immediate impact with a game-high 9.5
tackles. Fellow linebacker CarlosWooten
had six tackles in the game including two
for a loss.
The Royals take to the road next
weekend when they travel to face Alcom
State University (Miss.). Kick-off for next
Saturday's game is 2 p.m. (EST).

I admit, I found myself at the pet
store the other day, trying to decide if
our our clinic blood donor dog Roscoe
would look better this year in a Tigger
or Eyeore costume for Halloween.
I didn't decide on either, although
Roscoe wouldn't care which one I
picked. With his gentle soul (around
people and animals he knows well)
and my love of the color blue, it will
probably be Eyeore if we decide on a
little whimsy.
Halloween is synonymous with
many things, but there is a common
concern that veterinarians invariably
hear about almost every year. That is
the myth and realities of the toxicity of
chocolate in dogs. You'd be surprised,
but I've heard everything from its
an old wives (or witches) tale to pet
owners who panic if one Hershey's kiss
is unaccounted for.
It is true, chocolate and dogs
shouldn't mix. Dogs are no different
from many of us chocoholicss unite!)
in that the smell and taste of chocolate
is very appealing to them.
One of the reasons veterinarians
often talk about this problem around
holidays, and not just Halloween, is
celebrations often can involve making
special desserts and treats. Problem
is, Baker's Chocolate is by far the
most toxic. The rule of thumb is the
darker the chocolate, the more toxic
it is. Even a small amount of Baker's
chocolate, one or two ounces, can
cause serious problems in even bigger
dogs. One or two ounces ingested bya -
small dog is a true medical emergency
if it's Baker's Chocolate. Semi-sweet
or dark chocolate is next on the most
toxic list, followed by milk chocolate
and white chocolate, which is the least
toxic of all.,
The reasons chocolate is a problem
is because dogs don't process the
chemical Theobromine very quickly
at all (unlike humans, who process
it with relative ease and quickness).
One of the reasons that any ingestion
of chocolate deserves your close and
immediate attention is that different
brands of the same chocolate might
have varying levels of Theobromine.
Another is, like humans, some dogs
might have more sensitivity issues -to
chocolate than other dogs.

Dr. Lori Shank

(And, by the way, cat's normally
aren't at risk for this problem. That's
one advantage of being such finicky
If your dog has eaten chocolate,
or you have a strong suspicion that
he did, the first thing to determine
is how much and what type. Again,
the darker and more bitter, the more
toxic. And remember it could be as
many as 12 hours before signs of a
problem crop up, so just don't check
on Fido once or twice in an hour after
you think there might be an issue, and
then forget about him.
Visible signs of chocolate poisoning
include restlessness, panting and
-excessive thirst in mild cases to vom-
iting, diarrhea, tremors and seizures
and excessive urination in serious
And naturally, dogs don't usually
take their time and neatly unwrap
each piece. Their ill-gotten chocolate
is usually consumed wrapper andall,
which creates a potential secondary
issue of a bowel obstruction, which
can come with the same visible signs
as poisoning,
There are two other possible food
items for concern. One is raisins
(we used to avoid that house in the
neighborhood when we were growing
up, but therewas always at least one!)
which have a higher toxicity than
another similar item on the doggie
no-no list, grapes.
.Also, be aware that Xylitol is very
toxic. It is used as a sugar substitute in
some chewing gums, so animal owners
should be very careful if any of this
shows in the Trick or Treat bags.
With a little planning and fore-
thought, there's no reason your own
little Tigger or Eeyore has to find
Halloween a scary proposition.

Dogs: There are approximately 78.2 million owned
dogs in the U.S. 39% of US households own at least
one dog 28% of owners own two dogs.
Cats: There are approximately 86.4 million owned
cats in the U.S. 33% of US households own at least
one cat 52% of owners own more than one cat.

'mA t w--

Dani McVety is a rarity in the medical
profession, and not just because she
makes house calls. The Lutz veterinar-
ian's company, Lap of Love Veterinary
Hospice & In-Home Euthanasia,
provides compassionate assistance to
pets in rapidly declining health and
their owners.
Her successful formula for the
company she co-founded in 2010 has
expanded to a network of veterinarians
from California and Washington state to
Massachusetts, the Midwest and else-
where in the Southeast. "In two years,
we've gone from two vets in Florida to
over 60 vets around the United States,"
she said. She and her local staff serve
Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco
The idea for the company evolved
months after McVety graduated in 2009.
from the University of Florida College
of Veterinary Medicine, and while she
was working for Tampa BayVeterinary
Emergency Service. "It was clear that
even though I was newly out of vet
school, my strength was talking to
clients through those hard times," she
said of distressed pet owners seeking
urgent care for their dogs and cats.
When McVety had to perform her,
first humane euthanasia, she realized
the value of the service, an experience
that renewed memories of volunteering
at a human hospice while attending
Colorado State University. "It was just
an amazing experience to see how they
handled death, how they handled the
families around the death," she said of
the hospice in Fort Collins, Colo. "In
medicine we're taught how to treat,
treat, treat, and not usually taught how
to manage the case delicately.
"If you think about it, I probably have
one of the hardest jobs in medicine,
especially in the only medical field
licensed to take a life," she said. "I have
to walk into a total stranger's house and,
from their perspective, euthanize their
best friend." But she said it is an honor
to help pet owners during the dreaded
moment. Thank-you letters from clients
fill books in her home office.
To develop Lap of Love, McVety drew
upon life experiences that included
her hospice training and witness-
ing euthanizing of her 13-year-old
Doberman, Dusty. In-home services
include consultation, sedation, humane

euthanasia and memorial keepsakes
like a clay paw imprint and a pet loss
booklet with the animal's name and
date of death. Aftercare arrangements
include cremation.
McVety, who grew up in Odessa,
addresses about 10 college veterinary
student groups annually. She tells them:
"While grades are important, they're
not the only thing. It's about how you
interact with people, how well you can
help them and how comfortable you
make them feel."
Soon after launching Lap of Love,
McVey enlisted the help of a friend and
former UF vet school classmate, Mary
Gardner, then working at a general
veterinary practice in South Florida.
Gardner, whose first career was with a
software development company, left
the vet practice and joined McVety to
become co-founder of the company.
Gardner's decade-long software career
was critical to meeting the unexpected
"I had absolutely no idea what it was
going to turn into. But shortly after I
started I was getting calls from people
all over the country wanting to start
something similar," McVety said. To that
end, Gardner wrote a total web-based
practice management software program.
The company launched in fall 2009
and had its first out-of-state member in
summer 2011. "And we started taking to
vets all over the country," McVety said.
Today there are eight in Florida alone.
With two full-time employees a
veterinarian and a receptionist -
McVety's practice responds to 30 to
40 calls weekly.
McVety goes on about one call weekly.
"Now, as head of the company, I have
to work on the business, not necessarily
for the business," she said. Her obliga-

Kissimmee Ramblins: goldfish for bass? Yup!

Most fishermen always remember the
thrill of landing a big one when they're
young. You might say that's the moment
we all get "hooked."
The first big fish that I ever caught
was on the east side of Rabbit Island in
Lake Kissimmee. I was with my grand-
dad, Jack Denton, and some relatives
from lower Alabama.
We were fishing with some heavy cane
poles, up in the thick grass with shiners
and goldfish! My relatives from Alabama
were not concerned with the illegality
of goldfish. They just enjoyed pulling in
eight, 10- even 11-pound bass.
My report today is on the Camp Mack
team tournament, and I have some
exciting info on that. Bob Eddy, Camp
Mack co-owner and tournament guru
said: "All participants will surrender
their electronic equipment at the
launching ramp.
"You can't find your brush piles." This
will go into effect for next year.
The Camp Mack two-man tour-
nament held Sunday, Sept. 29, had
39 boats. They left at safe light of 7 a.m.
and weighed in at 2 pm. A couple of
Lake Wales fishermen, Richie Upchurch
and Danny Hulett, went home with
some dollars in their pockets. The
results, including prize paid, are for
weighing six fish:
1. Scott Perry and Richard Anthony,
37.05 pounds, $912, and big fish,
11.35 pounds, $380.
2. Richie Upchurch and Danny Hulett,
33.70, $506.
3. David Crews and Mike
Bedenbaugh, 33.55, $304.
4. WesleyWise of Frostproof and
Derrick Moore, 31.85, $202.
5. Dave Ochs and Wayne Combs, 25.0,

Upcoming Events
Next weekend is the Camp Mack open
(one man) with weigh-in at 2 p.m. Entry
fee $85 plus $10 for big bass. There is an
80 percent payback for the tournament,
with 20 percent held for Classic which is
scheduled for Nov. 2 and 3. For informa-
tion, call Camp Mack at 863-696-1108.
There are several school-related
events to share information on as well.
It's always good to see younger fisher-
man get involved.
Bartow will have the Bartow Ford
Jacket Challenge on Lake Istokpoga
Oct. 19. For information, contact
Derrick Boswell at 863-513-8877 or
For the college folk, the Polk State

Celebrate the squash family year-round

It's October, and Halloween is right
around the corner. Besides ghosts,
costumes, and mountains of candy (please
pass the insulin bucket... ), the pumpkin,
a member of the squash family, is king.
This pretty fruit and its many relatives of
all shapes, colors, and sizes, deserve to
remain center-stage all year long.
Of all the fruits we eat, squash are
among the most nutritious. Mostly yellow
or orange-fleshed, they are nutrient-dense
and also contain exceptionally high levels
of potassium and vitamin A. Fiber-rich,
squash are extremely low in calories
and fat, unless you cook them with tons
of butter, cream or sorry friends -
marshmallows. Consuming squash has
numerous health benefits, particularly for
the skin, respiratory system and eyes.
Botanically, squash, which also include
the cucumber and melon, are fruits;-.the
part of the plant which grows and stores
the seeds. For culinary' purposes however,
they are used as vegetables. The squash
family is divided into two major groups:
winter and summer.Winter squash are
harvested at the end of the summer when
mature. They are cured to harden their
rind, and stored for long-term use during
the winter months. They include butternut
squash, spaghetti squash, colorful and
strange-looking turban squash, fairytale
squash, acorn squash, banana squash, etc.
Summer squash, on the other hand, are
harvested before maturation, when they
are small and their skin soft. Yellow crook-
neck and green zucchini are examples.
Most parts of the squash plants are edible;
the leaves, flowers, and seeds. The seeds
are also highly nutritious, and offer good

fats. Cleaned and dried, they are eaten raw
or roasted, as a snack, or added to salads,
granola, and quick breads.
Both summer and winter squash are
versatile and maybe consumed steamed,
saut6ed, or baked (ahh, whole-grain,
home-baked zucchini bread). Mashed
winter squash can be used instead of
cessed carned ones. They are served as a
side dish, or as chunks added to soups and
stews. Zucchini, both yellow and green,
hardly need cooking and can also be eaten
raw, sliced and incorporated into salads, or
grated and used in baking.
For easier cutting of winter squash,
bring them to room temperature after
washing and drying. Use a large, sharp
knife to CAREFULLY cut into /2- inch
thick slices. Then trim/peel the rind of
each slice holding it firmly on the cutting
board. Scrape the seeds off. -
If you are so inclined, growing squash of
any kind is easy and fun. These fast-grow-
ing plants will bless you with loads of
super-nutritious fresh veggies, and the
opportunity to share them with neighbors
and loved ones. Make squash part of your

health care support team. Below are some
eawy-to-make, mouth-watering recipes for
you to try-enjoy.

with grief
I rio

A sense of loss is one of the most
powerful feelings that we can experience.
Feelings of grief come from a close,
intimate bond that has been broken with
another person that we loved.
Grief can make us feel as if our world
is spinning out of control and that there
is no end to the rollercoaster of emotions
that we feel.
In spite of all the painful aspects of
grief, that intense feeling is a reflection of
the love for the one who has departed. In
other words, we grieve deeply because we
love deeply.
Grief experts often call feelings of grief

before death "anticipatory grief," or the
reaction to losses past, present and future.
Anticipatory grief can also be experi-
enced when the seriously ill are no longer
able to function in theirvalued roles that
once shaped their identity, such as the
role of a husband or parent. In addition,
the loss of independence and the loss of
unfulfilled plans, dreams and other signif-
icant milestones can be a part of antici-
patory grief. Many people are surprised at
their intense feelings after an anticipated
death has occurred, because they thought
they were "prepared."
In order to help with the healing
process, there is one thing that is required
of anyone who grieves and that is to
acknowledge that the journey through
grief is a long and difficult one. Try not to

be too hard on yourself or to have rigid
expectations of what your healing should
look like. During the course of your grief,
you will likely feel sad, angry, anxious,
frightened and possibly relieved that your
loved one is no longer in pain.
Grief experts agree that there are other
actions you can take that can help you
cope with your situation, such as keeping
yourself physically healthy by exercising,
eating properly and getting adequate"
sleep. Accept help from friends and other
family members so that you can make
time for yourself each day, even if it is
only 30 minutes. Please don't be timid
about getting support from a caring
friend who can listen to your feelings and
provide comfort. If your support system
is small, there are many local support

groups that are available for caregivers
where you can talk with others who are
experiencing struggles similar to your
Finally, remember that grieving is an
.up-and-down process. Be compassionate
with yourself as you encounter painful
thoughts and feelings, and try not to
set a particular course for healing. Take
things slowly and make sure that you have
lots of support from family, friends and
Good Shepherd Hospice offers many
support groups in the Polk County
community to help people cope with grief
issues. If you would like more informa-
tion or need assistance, please call the

Eyelids involved in

Myasthenia gravis

DEAR DR. ROACH: When I sit and
take a meal or drink coffee, my eyes
slowly close! But I'm not asleep. My
daughter or son-in-law will speak my
name or bump my foot to get me to
open my eyes. I was having coffee the
other day and actually dropped my
cup. I am getting worried. I'm 80 years
old and in good health. Anon.
ANSWER: The most concerning
condition that comes to mind would
be myasthenia gravis. It's caused by
antibodies at the site where the nerve
tells the muscle what to do (called
the neuromuscular junction). The
eyelids are the classic involved body
site, with more than 50 percent of
people affected predominantly in the
eyelids. Double vision.also is com-
mon in this condition.
Early on, myasthenia gravis has
intermittent symptoms, butover time
they become more persistent. I would
recommend that you visit a neurol-
ogist. Physical exam, blood tests and
sometimes an EMG (a test of nerve and
muscle activity) and a trial of medica-
tion in the office make the diagnosis.
SEarly symptoms of.myasthenia
gravis can be subtle, and it's entirely
possible that what you have is some-
thing much simpler.
DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 70-year-
old woman in reasonably good
Health. For the past 18 months or so,
I have had a vibration or fluttering
in my chest. It happens only upon
awakening- in-Lthe morning, middle
of the night or after a nap. I've had
an EKG and worn a Holtermonitor
for 24 hours. My doctor seemed to
think the results were normal, except
for onrishort episode of a heart rate
of 120.1 don't want to sound like a
hypochondriac, but it's somewhat
disconcerting, since it keeps happen-
ing. Should I be concerned or pursue
it further? -A.E.H.
ANSWER: Fluttering sensations
in the chest are very common at all
ages. Your doctor quite reasonably
worried about an abnormal heart
rhythm arrhythmiaa), and a Holter
monitor measures every heartbeat
for 24 hours. If you had the sensation
while wearing the Holter monitor,
and at the time of the symptoms you
had normal heart.rhythm, that's
very good evidence that the sensation
is not being caused by your heart
rhythm. Sometimes, if a person has
no symptoms during the 24 hours,
the doctor might order an event
monitor, which is like a Bolter that
you wear for a month, and records
only if you tell it to or if it recognizes
an abnormality.
So, if you had symptoms during
your Holter, I would be reassured that
it's not a heart-rhythm problem. If
not, you should speak with your doc-
tor about an event monitor. Not all
fluttering is caused by heart-rhythm
issues. Muscle twitching (called
fasciculations) in the chest muscles
causes similar symptoms.

America's No. 1 killer, explains what
happens, how they are treated and -

ANSWER: Sezary syndrome is a rare
disease (less than one case per mil-
lion people yearly). It is a type of skin
lymphoma, but it also has malignant
T-cells in the blood (leukemia). It is
almost always found in people over
age 30.

could increase

property taxes

If you live in New York's Nassau
County, you are possibly paying some
of the highest property taxes in the
country. Nassau County residents had
an average property tax bill of nearly
$8,500 in 2011.
Understanding property taxes is not
very cut and dry. They are supposed to
rise and fall with home values, but this
isn't always the case. There is roughly
80,000 pages of federal code on prop-
erty taxes, and each state and town
often has its own rules governing how
property taxes are assessed. State and
local budget cuts can raise taxes even if
your home value remains the same, as
will an increase of benefits for public
employees. Property tax is typically the
primary means that many jurisdictions
raise revenue. So if your community
needs money, you can probably count
on itf financing that need through higher

property taxes.
The two things that determine
property taxes are the assessed value of
your home and the property tax rate for
where you live. In many cases, making
improvements to the inside and out-
'side of your home can result in higher
'taxes on your property. MNany home-.
'owners do not think about the tax man
,when they are about to renovate their
home. But it is important to consider
that home repairs -- even planting a
garden --could lead to higher property
taxes. Although the vast majority of
,repairs that most often affect taxes
;include major renovations, there are
lesser known repairs that can catch
even savvy homeowners by surprise.
'.Here-is a look at some of the reno-
vadons that could raiseyour property
Adding a room: Converting the
garage into a bedroom or adding on
a new bathroom will increase your
home's value and the property tax
you'll pay on the home. Although tax

- assessors don't usually make surprise
trips to your home to check for renova-
tions indoors, they may peruse permits
filed at the clerk's office and then in-
vestigate. Permits are the primary way
assessors learn about improvements,
so much so that some homeowners
look to circumvent permits when
making renovations. But that can cause
a number, of problems down the line if
and when you decide to sell.
S' Pools and outdoor structures: ..
-,Changes to a home's exterior are some
of the easiest to see and document.
Permanent changes outdoors, such
as the installation of a shed with a '
concrete floor, a deck or a pool can
definitelyincrease property taxes.
Landscaping: Hiring a professional
to do your lawn and plants can result
in higher taxes. It's called "alteration
of land improvement." Repaying a.,"
driveway or adding a new cement
walkwaymay also increase your home's
value and, subsequently, your property
tax bill.
Fireplaces: The installation of a fire-
place can also increase a home's value,
leading to a higher tax bill as well.

The addition of a pool or outdoor landscaping can raise property values and property tax.
