Kissimmee, Florida – Mr. Robert J. Bornstein was recently appointed to the Board of Supervisors of Toho Water Authority by the Polk County Board of Commissioners. Mr. Bornstein is replacing former Polk County representative supervisor Fernando Valverde. Mr. Bornstein’s term will run thru September 30, 2012.

When asked about his newly appointed position, Mr. Bornstein pledged to respond to Polk County resident’s suggestions, concerns and complaints. He encouraged residents to contact him at his web site

Mr. Bornstein has been a resident of the Solivita community on the Polk/Osceola line since 2006. Prior to that move, he lived in Seminole County for six years. He and his wife Ingrid have resided in the south since moving from his native state of New York in 1995. At that time he retired from his position as a hospital C.E.O., after almost thirty years as a hospital executive.

Mr. Bornstein has many years of experience in the business sector. He has also served in many volunteer positions for numerous community organizations, including Board positions and twice as Board Chair. Mr. Bornstein’s extensive career in hospital administration provides a good business and management background for the Toho Water Authority Board of Supervisors.

Established in October 2003 by a special act of the Florida legislature, Toho Water Authority is the largest provider of water, wastewater, and reclaimed water services in Osceola County. The Authority currently serves 80,000 water, 74,000 wastewater, and 10,000 reclaimed water customers in Kissimmee, Poinciana, and unincorporated areas of Osceola County.

A man who drove a pickup into a loaded Amtrak train in Osceola County this afternoon now faces a careless driving citation, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

A 1997 Ford F-150 driven by Frank Rosa struck the side of a northbound Amtrak train at a crossing at Old Tampa Highway and Poinciana Boulevard about 3:50 p.m., FHP spokeswoman Sgt. Kim Montes said.

Tire marks at the scene indicate Rosa, 40, skidded through the crossing and into the train’s engine car. A crossing gate was down, Montes said.

Rosa and two of the truck’s passengers were taken to Osceola Regional Hospital with minor injuries.

No passengers on the train were injured, she said.
