Polk

Officers

Sworn .In

By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

Seven new Polk County
Constitutional officers were
sworn in Tuesday afternoon at a
ceremony in the -Polk County
Historical Museum's 1908 court-
room.
Jerry Hill, state attorney; J.'
Marion Moorman, public defend-
er; Richard M. Weiss ,clerk of cir-
cuit court; Grady Judd, sheriff;
Marsha M. Fox property
appraiser; Joe G. Tedder, tax col-
lector and Lori Edwards, supervi-
sor of elections all were sworn
into their respective positions.
For Hill, this was the seventh
consecutive time he was sworn in
by Judge Oliver Green. He
pledged to recommit the state
attorney's office, and "remain
progressive."
Hill also said his office needs
to "recognize the fact that we can
never say there is nothing left to
improve."
:,Moorman credited success to,
his staff, many of whom were
hired by Hill. He said he appreci-
ated the support and under-
standing, especially from the
local media.
"We can't continue to do the
same old things." Moorman said.
"We need to take our business
seriously without taking our-
selves too seriously."
Weiss said his life and career
could be summed up by the word
"fortunate." He said he wished he
was responsible for his reelec-
tion. but credited the staff in the
clerk's office for making him and
his office look good.
"Just call me rookie," opened
Judd in his speech. He credited
his wife, Marisa, ,who quit her
career to run his campaign, for
his recent success.
Judd pledged to people who
supported and voted for him that
the Sheriff's office will "continue
to provide honest, ethical, and
efficient law enforcement."

Few can honestly call them-
selves "the best in the world" at
anything. An even more exclusive
group can make that claim twice.
So imagine Bartow High
School International
Baccalaureate Principal Dr. Ed
Vetter's surprise when he
received not one, but' two letters
notifying him that his students
had ranked first on the planet in
passing their advance placement
(AP) exams.
You read that right. Not the
state, not the country, not even
the North American hemisphere
- the whole\planet.
"It was unbelievable, I was
overwhelmed," Dr. Vetter said of
his reaction to the news.
Among schools with less than
500 students, Bartow IB was rec-
ognized by the College Board, the
company that oversees AP test-
ing, as having the strongest AP
English and AP World History
courses in the world.
"We knew they were great stu-
dents, but we had no idea we were
performing at such a high level
compared to the world," Dr. Vetter
said.
As part of their "Advanced
Placement Report to the Nation,"
the College Board compares the
number of students scoring a
three or higher on the exam to the
total high school enrollment for
individual schools across the
globe. The report: is slated to be
released on Jan. 25.
On MV6nday, the students were
recognized at- a small assembly,
where each received a sticker
with the school's 16go and a pen.
Dr. Vetter said the students
are .well deserving of the honor
because of the extreme amount of
effort they put into their work,
but the teaching staff and cur-
riculum should get credit as well.
The secret to Bartow IB's suc-
cess, Dr. Vetter said, is the "verti-
cal alignment" of the IB curricu-
lum. The teachers work together
to make sure there is carry over
in the lesson plans from year to
year and class to class.
"It's a continuum of learning,"
Dr. Vetter said.
While the entire faculty is in
part responsible for the high test
scores, Dr. Vetter said two teach-
ers in particular were deserving
of praise.
Sharon Smith, who teaches
AP/IB English 'three, and John


Rhoden, who teaches AP
American History, are the ones
responsible for preparing stu-
dents before they undergo the
grueling, four-hour advanced
placement tests in their respec-
tive subjects.
Rhoden, who had been teach-
ing at Bartow High School for six
years, just began teaching AP
World History this year. Rhoden
says he uses levity in the class-
room to keep the students
engaged, as well as' discussing
current events and how they
relate to the coursework.,
"You just don't lecture the
whole class," Rhoden said.
"Nobody likes that."
Mrs. Smith, who has spent the
last five years teaching AP
English, has been at Bartow High
School for 14 years. She credits
her success. with students by
being emotionally honest with
them from the onset.
"Primarily, you have to love the
kids," Mrs. Smith said. "If you
don't really, they will know."


Mrs. Smith also makes herself
very accessible to students, by
providing .them with her home
phone number and e-mail
address, both of which, she said,
the students take full advantage.
The two teachers said having
the opportunity to teach the IB
students was a "dream job," but
that doesn't mean it is a cake
walk.
"(The IB students) are the
cream of the crop, but the infor-
mation must be presented in Oa
way that makes it interesting,"
Rhoden said.
"You really have to be able to
admit when you are wrong," Mrs.
Smith said.
Rhoden also faces a similar
problem with his students. "They
catch me every time," he said. "I
have to do so much outside work
just to keep up with them."
The two also said the cama-
raderie between teachers, not just
at Bartow IB, but Bartow High
School as well, really contributes
to a positive atmosphere for


teachers and students alike.
Rhoden, who taught university
classes for four years, said his
experience at the collegiate level
was almost the polar opposite of
the atmosphere at Bartow IB.
"(At a university), it's like
you're almost isolated from every-
one else," he said.
So far, both teachers have been
enjoying the students' reactions
to the accolade. Rhoden said he
gets pats on the back and con-
gratulations from random kids.
Mrs. Smith is now frequented
with flattery.
"Students have walked up to
me and said, 'Mrs. Smith,' do you
realize you're the best English
teacher in the world?' said a
smiling Mrs. Smith.
But are the kids letting this get
to their head?
"They are just proud," said
Mrs. Smith, sounding like a true
English teacher. "They are not
haughty at all."


U'


BEST IN THE WORLD? The College Board
thinks so. Among high schools with less than 500
students, Bartow International Baccalaureate was
recognized as having the strongest Advanced
Placement English and World History courses in
the world. John Rhoden teaches AP World History
and Sharon Smith teaches AP/IB English three.


These teachers are the ones responsible for prepar-
ing students for the two tests, but IB Principal Ed
Vetter credits the entire staff, the "vertical align-
ment" of the curriculum and the carryover in mate-
rial from year to year. (Staff photo by Rustin

Architecture Ordinance With Some


'Teeth in It' Adopted by Commission


AN UNIDENTIFIED MAN died in Fort Meade yesterday after he
apparently fell off a bicycle he was driving and landed face down in
some water off :abridge on Mount Pisgah Road. Joe Belcher of the
Fort Meade Fire Department said the cyclist may have run off the
road and hit a sign near the bridge guardrail, sending him down the
embankment and into the creek. Another cyclist at the scene told fire-
fighters he had just met the older man some 10 minutes before the
incident, and the two traveled together talking. The older man told
him he had lost a son in a cycling accident five years ago, and the
younger man shared his story, that 15 years ago he had been involved.

Heard a sound and turned to see the older man had wrecked and fall-
en into the creek. The younger man said he flew back, pulled the older
man out of the creek, and performed CPR, but was unsucce.. fial The.

A 107-page ordinance to pre-
serve historically-significant
architecture, one "that has a little
bit of teeth in it" in the words of a
former city commissioner, was
adopted on first reading by the
Bartow city commission on
Monday.
The ordinance will come up for
a public hearing on Jan. 18 one
day later than usual because of
the Martin Luther King Day holi-
day and Mayor Leo Longworth
urged anyone with concerns
about its provisions to speak out
at that meeting.
The ordinance would increase
the authority of Bartow's historic
architecture review board to regu-
late changes to or destruction of
Bartow's hundreds of historically
significant structures.
It would require a "certificate
of review" by the board before a
building or demolition permit
could be issued.
Among changes requiring a
"certificate of review":
Changes to the facade of a
building, including a change of
wall material (such as aluminum
or vinyl siding), altering or addi-
tion ( f C.irhiI.-.:tuiiral features, and
"major repairs."
Changing or removal of roof
features, including dormer win-


dows, cupolas, cornices, chim-
neys, weather vanes and light-
ning rods.
Changes of windows, doors
or porches, including the adding
or removal of doors, windows,
awnings or shutters.
"All proposed demolitions."
Pat Crisman, former city com-
missioner who now serves on the
historic architecture review
board, made the "teeth in it" com-
ment to the city commission,
adding that the intent of the ordi-
nance "is to protect our heritage."
She noted that the ordinance
applies to 50-year-old buildings
deemed to be "contributing struc-
tures," and does not apply auto-
matically to all homes more than
50 years old. The ordinance, in
her words, applies to "facade
changes or major things."
Herold Green, chairman of the
historic architecture review
board, said the ordinance spells
out guidelines for preservation of
historically significant structures.
Commissioner.Pat Huff under-
scored that the ordinance does
not apply to every structure with-
in the expanded boundaries of
historic districts.
The new boundaries start at
the north with the historically
significant homes on East Church
Street, encompass most of
Downtown Bartow, and extend
south through a residential dis-


trict to Stuart Street.
Also in the district are much of
East and West Bartow, the city's
three cemeteries (Oak Hill,
Wildwood, and Palm/Evergreen)
and an area east and southeast of
Nye Jordan Park.
The ordinance, with numerous


photographs of existing struc-
tures which typify various build-
ing styles, and sketches of modifi-
cations that are considered "inap-
propriate," "not recommended," or
"not acceptable," is available for
inspection at city hall.
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers


noted that property owners can
apply for designation of their
homes as "contributing" struc-
tures.

Putnam Urges Floridians to
Support Tsunami Relief Efforts


Congressman Adam H. Put-
nam (FL-12) offered his condo-
lences to victims and families of
the earthquakes and tsunamis in
Southeast Asia and East Africa,
and urged Floridians to aid in
the tsunami relief efforts.
"With the death toll from the
tsunami in Southeast Asia and
East Africa still rising and thou-
sands still missing, I. urge
Floridians to do what they can to
make a difference and contribute
as they are able to do. so," said
Putnam. "The most effective way
people can assist relief efforts is
by making cash contributions to
humanitarian organizations that
are conducting relief operations."
Putnam encouraged Ameri-
cans to visit www.usaid.gov to
find out how they can provide as-
sistance to those in need.
USAID encourages cash dona-
tions because they: allow aid pro-
fessionals to procure the exact
items needed (often in the aT-
fected region); reduce the burden
on scarce resources (such as
transportation routes, staff time,
warehouse space, etc.); can be
transferred very quickly and
without transportation costs;
support the economy of the dis-


aster-stricken region; ensure cul-
turally, dietary, and environ-
mentally appropriate assistance.
"While my district and con-
stituents suffered immensely in
the aftermath of Hurricanes
Charley, Frances and Jeanne,
this pales in comparison to the
devastation in Southeast Asia
and East Africa as more than
150,000 lives are estimated to be
lost and as many as five million
people thought to be homeless,
or without food or shelter; thou-
sands more are missing, and mil-
lions more are susceptible to dis-
ease," Putnam stated.
"The generosity of the Ameri-
can people, already being demon-
strated here in Polk County, is
heartwarming td see. President
George W, Bush has already
pledged $350 million dollars for
immediate relief in affected ar-
eas and more is on the way," con-
cluded. Putnam. "I will continue
to work in the House of Repre-
sentatives to assist relief ef-
forts."
Those who are concerned
about friends or relatives who
are American citizens can call

Three January Carillon Recitals
Planned at Bok Sanctuary


In January, Historic Bok
Sanctuary carillonneur William
De Turk will perform carillon re-
citals in honor of two of Ameri-
ca's most inspiring men, Edward
Bok, Sanctuary founder, and
Martin Luther King Jr., humani-
tarian and civil rights activist.
Both men believed in peace
and unity and made lasting con-
tributions to American society,
DeTurk said.
Visitors can stroll the Olm-
sted-designed garden and hear
the 60-bell Singing Tower.
On Sunday, Jan. 9, at 3 p.m.,
the Edward Bok Memorial Re-
cital will feature "America the
Beautiful," by Samuel Ward, in-
cluding the tolling of the largest
bell in the carillon; the hymn
"Lead Kindly Light," by John B.
Dykes; three pieces grouped as
"Music for a Garden" and addi-
tional pieces composed for the
Bok Carillon: "Allegro," by Sam-
uel Barber; "Etude," by Gian
Carlo Menotti and "Festive
Bells," by Nino Rota. The pro-
gram will close with "Barcarolle
for Carillon," by Ronald Barnes.
On Monday, Jan. 17, at 3
p.m., the Martin Luther King,
Jr., recital will showcase tally recorded compositions per-
formed by De Turk on the Sing-
ing Tower.
On Jan. 22, at 8 p.m., visitors
can enjoy the first of four sea-
sonal Moonlight Recitals.
"With the moonlight perform-
ances, the experience is night
and day," said De Turk. "The
many distractions in daylight
hours disappear as the sun sets
magnificently in the western
sky. Sunlight is replaced by


moonlight, stars, flambeaux and .
subtle lighting from within the
Tower."
John Courter, composer-in- t
residence at the Sanctuary for
three months in 2004, is a well-
known international carillon
composer. De Turk has selected
' Courter's works as the featured
selections for the series of Moon-
light Recitals.
General Sanctuary admission
is $8 for adults, and $3 for ages i
5-12. Members and children un- .
der 5 are admitted free. Admis- .
sion after 5 p.m., for the Moon-
light Recitals, will be $4 for
adults and $1.50 for children .'
ages 5-12.

Public Should Review


Historic Architecture Code


If your home is 50 years old or older, and
if you live in the expanded section of
Bartow that is about to be declared its his-
toric district, you should become familiar
with the proposed update of the city's his-
toric preservation ordinance.
It can dramatically limit your options in
remodeling your house.
On ihe other hand, it can protect the his-
toric el of your neighborhood by dramat-
ically limiting your neighbors' options in
remodeling their houses.
Whether that's good news or bad from
your perspective depends on which is
more important to you: having unlimited
authority to remodel your home, or pro-
tecting the architectural ambiance of your
neighborhood.
The objective of the new version of the
ordinance is to strike a balance between
those two interests. It leans more in the
direction of preserving existing architec-
ture.
Bartow's first historic architecture pro-
tection ordinance has been on the books
for several years. The city wisely has
moved slowly in beginning enforcement.
Most people resist being told what they
can or cannot do with their homes, just as
they resist things which they believe jeop-
ardize the value of their homes. ,
A 107-page rewrite, of the ordinance, in
the words of Pat Crisman, a former city
commissioner who now serves on the his-
toric architecture review board, is to create
a code "that has a little bit of teeth in it."
As detailed in a story in today's issue,
the code most assuredly does that.
While much of, the code consists of
encouraging compatible remodeling,
terms like "inappropriate," "not recom-
mended," and "not acceptable" are found
frequently.
A "certificate of review" by the architec-
ture review board would be required prior
to any remodeling or demolition of what is
called a "contributing structure." It should
be noted that neither the age of a building.
nor its location within the historic district
automatically makes it a "contributing
structure."'


The reality of Florida residential devel-
opment is that with the post-World War II
popularity of subdivision developments, a
great many homes were built that are
structurally sound and quite comfortable,
but not of an historically significant archi-
tectural style.
On the other hand, some rather modest
homes built before then are considered of
architectural significance. It is the style of
the home not the price that counts.
Having reviewed the ordinance at some
length (but without reading all 107 pages)
we find it to be a reasonable balance
between protecting property values
(through historic preservation) and prop-
erty rights of individual homeowners.
But the new code unquestionably has
more teeth in it than the previous code,
and eventually some homeowners will feel
the bite when they try to turn a quaint
turn-of-the-century bungalow into a latter
day chateau.
As in all codes which rely so heavily on
individual judgment, the key to this new
code is reasonable enforcement by a rea-
sonable review board.
Nonetheless, the time for homeowners
- particularly those who are contemplat-
ing major exterior remodeling to
become familiar with the .new code is,,
before it is adopted.
A final public hearing will take place at
the Jan. 18 city commission meeting.
, Copies are available for review at city
hall.

Sad Story, Happy Ending


BARTOW On, Friday, Dec.
31, I had joined my mother,
daughter, and grandson for lunch
at the very busy McDonald's in
Bartow.
I had received a beautiful and
valuable diamond bracelet for
Christmas. Unfortunately, the
safety clasp was not working
properly, and on Friday, I lost it.
You cannot imagine how upset
I was with myself for even, wear-
ing it that day.
After leaving McDonald's, I
had gone to the post office to


drop some mail, before heading
out of town. I was just outside of
Bartow, when I realized that the
bracelet was gone. I frantically
stopped and searched the car and
my purse, hoping to find it there;
no such luck.
I returned as quickly as I could
to McDonald's. I searched the
parking lot, the booth where we
had lunch, and the path in
between, with no luck. I
approached the front counter
* with a heavy heart and asked if
anyone had turned in the


bracelet.
You can imagine my surprise
when they, said it had been
turned in to the manager!
It would have been so easy to
slip the bracelet into a pocket or
purse and just to keep it. I would
like to thank the woman who
found my treasure and did the
honest thing: she gave it to
McDonald's personnel. May she
be blessed as I have been this
week.

THINKING OUT LOUD / By S. L. FRISBIE, IV

Quillian Yancey: An Honorable Man


Several decades ago, the
Florida Legislature granted itself
an exceptionally generous raise
-- the vague memory is that the
salary went from $1,200 to
$12,000 a year, though the years
may have magnified the numbers
- and I joined journalists
throughout the state in criticizing
that action.
I called them "our nouveaux
riches legislators," a characteriza-
tion that merited a note of com-
mendation from the editor of the
Lakeland Ledger.
Only one member of the Polk
County delegation, I opined, was
worth that much money, while
another had the potential of
reaching that value. I did not
identify either, which certainly
must have given every incum-
bent legislator confidence that he
was the first, or at least the sec-
ond.
Lawton Chiles was the first;


his worth to the body politic con-
tinued to grow, in the Legislature,
the United States Senate, and as
Governor.
The second was Quillian
Yancey, who established his cre-
dentials early as a worthy public
servant at the county and state
level.
He served in the Army in
World War II, then became an FBI
agent after graduating from
Florida Southern College.
After earning his law degree,
he served in the Florida House of
Representatives for six years.
Four years after leaving the
Legislature, he was elected state
attorney, where he computerized
-the office, years before that was
common practice. He also created
a white collar crimes unit.,
In August of 1976, just prior to
assuming the office of state attor-
ney, he was appointed as interim
sheriff after the indictment of the


incumbent sheriff and two
deputies on charges of election-
related misconduct. (They were
later acquitted.)
One of his first actions as state
attorney was to hire Hagan
Parrish, one of the best sheriffs in
Polk County history, as his chief
investigator.
After eight years as state attor-
ney, he chose not to run again,
but came out of political retire-
ment six years later, in 1990, to
run for the Florida Senate, defeat-
ing Charles Canady, who later
served four terms in Congress.
Yancey chose not to seek a second
term, publicly complaining about
the influence held by special
interests.
He was a man of strong princi-
ples, with a strong handshake
and a broad smile.
Today, they probably would
name a building, or at least road,
after him. They didn't do as


much of that when Quillia.
retired from politics.
But there once was a cat -
Siamese cat, if I recall correctly -
in the Georgetown district o
Washington, D.C., who wa
named for Quillian. My gooc
friend, the late Francis Pipes
honored Quillian, or perhaps th(
cat, in that fashion.
Quillian died on Monday al
the age of 82.
He was an honorable public
servant, and yes, he did grow tc
earn the raise that the Legislaturc
gave itself early in his political
career. He earned that, and the;
honor of having a Siamese cat
named for him.
They won't put that on his
tombstone, I suppose, but if you
know how discriminating
Siamese cats are, it is a fitting
honor.

Availity Wins Internet Award


Availity, L.L.C., was recog-
nized as the gold winner for best
interactive site and the gold win-
ner for best overall Internet site,
both in the business/process im-
provement category, at the fifth
annual eHealthcare Leadership
Awards ceremony.
The awards were presented in
Las Vegas in November during a
health care Internet conference.
The eHealthcare Leadership
Awards program was developed
and first presented in 2000 by
eHealthcare Strategy & Trends,
a leading Internet resource pub-
lished by Health Care Communi-
cations.
More than 1,200 entries were
received from firms representing
17 industry classifications, from
hospitals and health systems to
pharmaceutical firms and online
health companies.
One hundred-four judges fa-
miliar with health care and the
Internet evaluated the websites


and awarded prizes in 10 catego-
ries.
The judges looked at how sites
compared with others iin their or-
ganization's classification and
reviewed sites based on a pro-
prietary multi-point standard of
Internet excellence.
The best overall Internet site
category had to pass muster on
as many as 56 factors, including
delivery of strong health content,
interactivity, medical care sup-
port, integration with the organi-
zation's operations, as well as
strength of web design and ease
of navigation.
"In some cases, only a point or
two made the difference in win-
ning an award," Mark Gothberg,
eHealthcare leadership awards
chairman, said. "Competition
continues to be intense in the
large hospital, health care sys-
tem, and managed care classifi-
cations."


IN ADDITION TO giving out gifts and being jolly, Santa met
with children from Best Academy and danced to the music of the
Sherman Davis Band while visiting the Rohr Home. Santa is pic-
'tured with residents Patsy Giles and Selma Alexander. (Photos

Deadline for Crop Insurance

Coverage Program Looming


Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson re-
leased a statement reminding
farmers and other eligible stake-
holders of the approaching dead-
line for purchasing crop coverage
under the Non-insured Crop Dis-
aster Assistance Program (NAP).
The NAP, which is adminis-
tered by the U.S. Department of
Agriculture's Farm Service
Agency, provides financial assis-
tance to producers of non-insur-
able crops when low yields, loss
of inventory, or prevented plant-
ing occurs due to natural disas-
ters.
To be eligible for NAP assis-
tance, crops must be non-insur-
able crops and agricultural com-
modities for which the cata-
strophic risk protection level of
crop insurance is not available.
Interested parties should contact
a crop insurance agent regarding
whether a crop is insurable in a
specific county.
Contact the local Farm Serv-


ice Agency office for information
on whether a crop is eligible for
NAP coverage.
An eligible natural disaster
must occur before or during har-
vest and must directly affect the
eligible crop. The coverage pe-
riod for NAP may vary depend-,
ing on whether the producer
grows annual, perennial, or
value loss crops. To remain eligi-
ble for NAPiassistance, specific
crop acreage information must
be reported annually.
When a crop or planting is af-
fected by a natural disaster, the
local Farm Service Agency office
must be notified within 15 calen-
dar days.
For more information about
NAP, 'visit http://disaster.fsa.

Petition Seeks Fair Orange,

Juice Pricing From Brazil


A coalition consisting of Flor-
ida Citrus Mutual and a group of
Florida-based orange juice proc-
essors, representing the majority
of the domestic growing and
processing orange juice industry,
has petitioned the U.S. govern-
ment for antidumping duties to
offset the unfair prices offered by
Brazilian processors on both
bulk frozen concentrated orange
juice (FCOJ) and not-from-con-
centrate (NFC) orange juice.
Both FCOJ and NFC have
been dumped in the U.S. during
the past year by Brazilian im-
porters at prices below both their
European prices and below their
costs of production, with dump-
ing margins ranging from 37
percent for FCOJ to 78 percent
for NFC ... .

Your


Finances In 2005


Most people provide their cars with the
right maintenance in order to make their
investment last a long time.
That same approach can work with plan-
ning your financial future.
Rather than following a regular "mainte-
nance" schedule, many people think about
their long-term financial health mostly when
they need to take care of a current "life event:"
buying a house, having children, -facing a
medical emergency and so on.
That leaves a lot of us feeling unprepared.
A new study from A.G. Edwards & Sons,
Inc,, shows that 72 percent of Americans sur-
veyed are concerned about their lack of cash
assets on hand in the event of a job loss or
unexpected major expense.
The survey conducted by MarketTools,
Inc., also found 60 percent of respondents are
concerned about being able to build a nest egg
in order to retire in their desired time frame.
"It's amazing how a little planning can do a
lot to give you some comfort about being pre-
pared for your long- and short-term financial
needs," Sophie Beckmann, a certified finan-
cial planner and CPA for A.G. Edwards, said.
'The trick is to create a scheduled approach
- similar to a maintenance schedule for your
car that keeps up with you as you move
through different periods of your life."
Beckmann said one way to take care of our
future is by keeping financial strategies
updated based on our life stages, the same
way we'd perform regular auto maintenance.
Here are a few tips for doing so:
Starting Out and Moving Up (ages 18
to 34):
Think about your short-term goals. Start
funding a nest egg so you're prepared for
emergencies or buying a house.
With every paycheck, pay yourself first by
setting a little aside in a money market
account or other conservative cash invest-
ment.
Create a foundation for long-term
growth. This is the age to open and regularly
fund an IRA and enroll and contribute to your
employer's 401(k) plan.
Seek professional help. The people who
seem happiest with their cars also seem to
have longstanding relationships with
mechanics or dealers they trust.
A good early financial step is to establish
relationships with a trained financial consul-
tant and other advisers, such as an accoun-
tant or attorney (for estate planning), who can
provide expert advice about various aspects of
your financial future.
Focus on family finances. If you're start-
ing a family, consider how you'regoing to take
care of its financial future. Areas to explore
include life insurance, long-term disability
insurance, a basic will, and if you have chil-
dren perhaps contributing to a college sav-
ings plan or making arrangements for
guardianship,
Looking Ahead (ages 35 to 54):
Keep your retirement savings current.
Review the growth of your long-term retire-
ment investments (IRA, 401(k), company-
sponsored pension plans) regularly to stay
abreast of-whether you're likely to meet your
objectives; adjust your contributions accord-
ingly and rebalance your assets to maintain
the mix that's appropriate for your goals.
Review your financial obligations. As you
advance in your career or your family grows,
regularly review your financial plan to make
sure it's keeping pace. If your salary rises over
time, check to see that your family has
enough life insurance protection, for example,


or increase your retirement or education plan
contributions.
Dodge the tax man. Tax laws change fre-
quently, and you need to be up to date on how
they'll affect your investment and income
strategies. This is especially important now,
during your peak earning years.
Review with your financial consultant and
accountant whether federally tax-free or tax-
deferred investments make sense or whether
the current tax laws, interest rates and divi-
dend yields make it advantageous to use tax-
able investments for your income needs.
Think healthy thoughts. Statistically,
about one-third of all Americans requiring
long-term health care are below the age of 65.
As you near the age of 50, long-term care
insurance may be a prudent protection to add
to your financial mix to help protect against
the'potentially devastating costs of providing
long-term health care for you or a family
member.
Hitting Your Stride and Making the
Long Haul (ages 55 to up):
Keep planning. If you haven't already,
now is the time to speak with your financial
consultant, attorney and accountant about
creating an estate plan that ensures your
assets get distributed as you wish, with a
minimal tax bite.
Build an income stream. Besides the


There are a number of difficult con-
versations parents have with their chil-
dren along the path to adulthood.
One topic that parents rarely tackle
is money management, but having a
heart-to-heart about money and how to
manage it may save your child from
financial heartache down the road.
Today, the average annual cost of an
education at a public university is more
than $10,000 and at a private universi-
ty it is upwards of $27,000, according to
The Princeton, Review.
In addition, graduates typically
accrue more than $3,260 in debt on a
total of six credit cards, according to the
latest figures from student loan
provider Nellie Mae.
While students today are inundated
with offers of credit, many don't fully
understand the power of credit or its
long-term impacts.
Now, more than ever, it is imperative
that parents discuss the basics of the
credit process and share money man-
agement tips with their children.
Knowing the nuts and bolts of credit
and the benefits of successful money
management provides a solid founda-
tion from which your child can grow as
his or her income and financial respon-
sibilities increase.
With this in mind, here are some
helpful tips:,
Start off on the right foot. If you
have not filed the Free Application for
Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the first
step in the federal financial aid process
for the upcoming school year, do it now.


investment capital you've been building up in
your retirement plans, start looking at other
ways to create future streams of income, such
as annuities or dividend-paying stocks.
Stay ahead of taxes. Especially after
retirement, it's important to keep up to date
on tax laws. Review with your financial con-
sultant and accountant whether federally tax-
free municipal bonds make sense or whether
the current tax laws, interest rates and divi-
dend yields make it advantageous to use tax-
able investments for your income needs.
Weigh your assets. Just as at an earlier
age, you need to review your asset allocation
and investment performance regularly to
ensure they are keeping up with your needs
for income or long-term asset growth.
Depending on your health and other fac-
tors, retiring at age 65 could mean you'll still
have a couple more decades left be sure
your money is likely to be around just as long.
Taking the money. Depending on your
retirement plan, when you turn 70-1/2, you
may have to begin taking money out of the
plan through "mandatory distributions,"
which are set according to an IRS schedule
based on life expectancy.
Should this apply, work with your financial
consultant to review your income and deter-
mine the most appropriate use for this money.

Federal student aid is a great way
for college students to gain funding for
their educations and includes low inter-
est loans that are not required to be
paid until after graduation.
If you have to pay for school, one of
the best techniques to escape with as
little debt as possible is through this
process.
The fastest way to file a FAFSA is
online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/.
Which credit card is right for you?
As your child enters the world of credit,
it is important to understand the basics
of the .industry as well as the most
appropriate type of credit card for his or
her potential spending needs.
Discuss interest rates, how they
work and the impact they can have on
credit in the short and lhg i 'erm. Help
your child create a budget and make
sure they are aware that credit is not
just "free money," but must be paid and
has repercussions if not.
Know the consequences. In addi-
tion to explaining the credit card indus-
try, be sure to make clear how these
convenient pieces of plastic fit into the
bigger picture. Make your children
aware that late payments on credit
cards now or even possessing too many
cards can affect whether or not they
will be able to afford their dream home
in 10 years.
Be alert. Discuss the methods and
tools that will allow your child to better
manage money, and check his credit
report.


If you're thinking about buying
a house or car, applying for a
credit card or even purchasing
insurance, there are three digits
you need to know.
Those three digits make up
your credit score and greatly
influence virtually every impor-
tant financial transaction you
make.
So it makes sense to know
what your score is, understand
what it means and learn what
you can do to improve it.
Q. How do you get a credit
score?
A. Every person who has ever
borrowed money or utilized credit
has a score that reflects how well
he or she has handled that credit
in the past.
It considers factors like how
much credit you have, how much
money you owe and whether you
have made past payments on
time. Essentially, lenders believe
how you've handled credit in the
past is a good indicator of how
you will handle it in the future.
So your credit score, serves as a
quick, objective and reliable pre-
dictor .of how likely you are to
repay your next loan on time. If
you've had credit problems in the
past such as late payments or
even a delinquent account
charged off chances are your
credit history has some strikes
against it.
If that is the case, many banks
and credit unions may shy away
from loaning you money.
Fortunately, there are companies
experienced in providing credit to
consumers who have less-than-
perfect credit scores.
"Today, one-third of people who
seek automotive financing have
some blemishes on their credit
records. However, just because
they don't qualify for prime-rate
loans doesn't mean there aren't
other resources they.can turn to,"
Steve Bowman, chief credit officer
at AmeriCredit, one of the
nation's leading non-prime auto-
mobile financing companies, said.
Many lenders rely on a credit-
scoring system that ranges from
350 (poor credit risk) to 850
(excellent credit risk) and is
based on more than 30 pieces of
information, including a person's
payment history, the amount they


owe all their creditors and the
length of their credit history.
There are three primary credit
bureaus that track this informa-
tion TransUnion, Equifax and
Experian.
"Any time you open a new
credit card, apply for a loan or fail
to make a payment on time, that
information is reported to the
bureaus and affects your score,"
Bowman said.
So when it comes to improving
your credit score and reducing
your debt, the sooner you take
action, the better off you'll be in
the long run.
Here are some tips for improv-
ing your credit score:
Pay your bills on time. If you
have missed payments, get cur-
rent on your bills and stay cur-
rent. Delinquent payments have
an extremely negative impact on
your score.
Remember, you can usually
ask your creditor to move the due
date of your bills to a different
time of the month. If that would
help you pay on time, consider
that option.
If you can't pay off the bal-
ances of your credit cards each
month; meet the minimum
monthly payments. Paying the
minimums consistently and on
time will help improve your score.
Don't hit all your credit lim-
its. Using, a large percentage of
your available credit is a warning
sign that you are stretching your
limitations.
Some experts recommend that
you should keep your balances at
50 percent of your credit limit or
less.
Close accounts you don't use,
except for some of your oldest
accounts.
Lenders may see open
accounts that aren't being used as
a risk that you could go on a
spending: spree and overextend
yourself.
Closing your oldest accounts,
however, may make your credit
history appear shorter. When
deciding which accounts to close,
consider closing the accounts
with annual fees or the highest
interest rates first.
If your credit score is fairly
strong, but you still have a lot of
debt, here are some ways to


reduce your debt:
Make a plan. The experts
agree that preparing a budget
and sticking to it is the most real-
istic way to start chipping away
at debt.
Pay off the credit card with
the highest interest rate first,
while paying the minimum on
other cards. Once your highest-
interest-rate card is paid off,
move to the card, with the next
highest rate, and so on.
You are better off paying your
debt down than you are moving it
around to other cards with lower
rates.
Each month, apply a little
extra money available from your
budget to your bills, just as
though it were part .of the pay-
ment.
Paying as little as $10 over the
required minimum payment
amount can cut your repayment
time in half.
Order your credit report from
the three credit bureaus
(TransUnion, Equifax and
Experian) to learn exactly where
your credit stands and why.
When a person requests his or
her credit report, it is listed as a
"soft inquiry" and doesn't count
against your score.
"Being educated about your
credit rating, even if your rating
is lower than you'd like it to be, is
much better than being misin-
formed," Bowman said.
If your credit has blemishes on
it, you may be thinking, :"Will it
benefit me to start improving my
credit now?" Yes it's never too
late to dedicate yourself to
increasing your score. Events on
your credit record that occurred
during the last two years weigh
more heavily than events further
in the past.
After seven to 10 years
(depending on the type of event),
the information is dropped from
your credit record altogether.
If you have work to do to
improve your score, you'll be bet-
ter off the sooner you get started.

Vocalist Janet Paschal and
Christian recording artists, The
Pfeifers, will be featured in con-
cert at Union Congregational
Church in Avon Park Saturday,
Jan. 15.
The concert beings at 7:30
p.m.
Ms. Paschal has received sev-
eral Dove Award nominations
during her Christian musical ca-
reer. She has enjoyed national
and international success, and
currently serves as the official
spokesman for the international
relief organization, Mission of
Mercy, a spokesman said.
With a list of such songs as "I
Am Not Ashamed Of The Gos-
pel," "Washed In The Blood Of
The Lamb," and "Another Sol-
dier's Coming Home" to her
credit, Ms. Paschal performs in
excess of 50 solo concerts each
year, and for more than a decade
has been regularly featured on
the Bill Gaither Homecoming
Tour.


Upon returning from a short
vacation, I found so many things
to do that I decided to delay
checking my phone messages un-
til later it was a decision I
would regret.
Finally, about 10 o'clock that
night, I pushed the "play" button
on my answering machine and
started jotting down phone num-
bers of callers, as well as the rea-
sons for their calls.
Most of the messages I logged
that night were quite routine,
until the final one a shocker
that raised me to my feet to re-
wind and play again the tortured
words of an angry man who said
he was going to end his life.
He had made the call at 6:17
that morning, according to my
not-always-reliable answering
machine, and he gave no hint of
where he was or how I could
reach him. In an earlier call, he
had mentioned the name of a
.restaurant, which I now hur-
riedly tried to phone, but re-
ceived no answer.
"Too late," I sighed, hoping
those words wouldn't describe
my efforts to prevent a suicide.
My next move was to make
contacts in the area where this
suicidal man had been living. I
wanted to know why he was in
this state of mind and where I
might find him. Friends said he
had been out of money and had
started hitchhiking south, proba-
bly heading toward an area that
had once been his home.
But why this fierce anger?
And why was it directed toward
God and all churches, as his
phone message had made so
clear?
Did. he blame God for his
problems?
If so, he Wouldn't have been
the first to do so.
Nor would he have been alone
in blaming churches and their
members for not offering to help
him in his time of need.
I had heard this disturbing
phone message late Thursday
night, and .for the next three
days I tried to find the depressed
caller who was-clearly bent on
his own ':.degtT-ction. In my:
search,. I contact, police depart-
ments, missipns, shelters, a
church, and a family I thought
might have a clue to his where-
abouts; all to no avail.


My wife, Pauline, and I kept
praying for this desperate man
to be found, and with each pass-
ing hour I became more desper-
ate, causing unwanted questions
to surface: "Why had I waited so
long to check those phone calls?
How would I handle the death
of this longtime acquaintance if
we were unable to find him in
time to save his life?"
Then, on the fourth day, a call
came from a police dispatcher
bringing good news. "I've found
him," he said.
The man who had been angry
at God and all churches had
been picked up by a Good Sa-
maritan and taken to a church
shelter where praying, caring
people were providing for his
needs, encouraging him, and
helping him find a reason to live.
"You're under great stress
when you are the only one who
knows someone is considering
suicide," I said, trying to justify
my small faith during this or-
deal.
"You weren't the only one who
knew," Pauline replied.
She was right, of course.
Again.
"The Lord is good," said a
prophet long ago (Nahum 1:7).
Remembering his words will
keep us from blaming God and
His people when trouble gets us
down.
, Most of the problems we'll
face this year will be of our own
making. In spite of this, our lov-
ing Lord will meet us in them
and in response to faith bring us
safely through.

S Making Difficult Decisions


Most. everyone is involved with making numerous decisions each
and ever) J.., ..nd although most of them are fairly simple ones, occa-
sionally we are faced with more difficult situations. What we eat for
breakfast or what outfit we will wear are fairly simple choices that we
can usually make without too much thought. However, decisions
involving bour lifestyle, health problems, or financial matters, can affect
'us, or our loved ones, in a more significant way, and usually require
.more consideration and thought. Often, we may be reluctant to be deci-
sive because we are overly concerned about failing to make the right
choice. But, we must realize that everyone makes wrong decisions from
time to time, and what is more important is how we react when we have
-made a bad choice. Do we fret and condemn others or ourselves, or do
we go on with our lives and make the best of our situation? The Bible
.ells. us that, in everything God works for good with those who love
Him, who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). God
has given us the ability to use our free will to make good, prayerful
. decisions, and when we do, even apparently wrong decisions can often
be turned around for something good.

SJesus looked at them and said, With man
this is impossible, but with God all things are
possible. N.I.V. Matthew 19:26

Rosemary:





Aromatherapy for the Kitchen


Rosmarinus officinalis sounds
very well, official. Actually, it
is official, the scientific name for
the delightful herb rosemary.
One legend says that this plant
gave shelter to the Holy Family
during the flight to Egypt. The
Virgin Mary hung her blue cloak
on the evergreen, which had
white flowers. Overnight, the
flowers turned blue and the plant
was forever after known as the
"rose of Mary." Some say that she
laid her cloak over it to wrap the
infant Jesus in rosemary's fra-
grance. :
Rosemary is native to the sea
cliffs of the Mediterranean. Its
Latin name comes from two
words meaning "mist of the sea,"
because its gray-green color looks
like mist against the hills.
Ancient Greeks believed that
rosemary strengthened the mind
and improved memory. Greek stu-
dents braided rosemary into their
hair to help them with their
exams.
In the language of flowers,
rosemary means remembrance. It
was placed on .the graves of
English heroes. A gift for friends,
it also was a sign of faithfulness
for lovers. Brides often wore rose-
mary wreaths in their hair on
their wedding days.
Not only is the aroma of rose-
mary delightful, the plant is sup-
posed to be delightfully easy to
grow. Don't. believe everything
you read. Having received a plant
for Christmas, I can tell you that
the. aroma lasts long after the
plant begins to die.
Rosemary is available fresh
and dried, as a single herb or in
bouquet garni, herbes de
Provence, and seasoning blends
for lamb and Mediterranean
cuisines. The slender, .slightly
curved leaves resemble miniature
pine needles.
In ancient Greece, Rosemary
was recognized for its alleged
ability to strengthen the brain
and memory. -Greek students
would braid Rosemary into their
hair to help them with their


exams. Also known as the herb of
remembrance, it was placed on
the graves of English heroes,
"Rosemary has a distinctive
pine-woody aroma with cam-
phoraceous undertones and a
fresh, bittersweet flavor," says the
McCormick Spices' website
(www.mccormick.com). That is
where we found some of our
recipes today.
Rosemary can be found at gro-
cery stores, of course, and on the
Internet, but just don't come look-
ing for the fresh herb at my
house. The poor plant only has a
couple of tablespoons left on its
two feet of dry trunk.
