City To Get $2 Million


Up Front for Main Street


.. 1


The Florida Dept. of
Transportation has agreed to pay
the city of Bartow up front for the
FDOT's share of the cost of
redesigning Main Street.
Under terms of an agreement
approved by the city commission,
the FDOT will pay the city
$2,023,724 in advance, rather
than on a reimbursement basis.
The city is planning to make
Main Street sidewalks wider and
the pavement narrower as a way
to slow traffic and make the
downtown area more "pedestrian
friendly." Van Fleet Drive will
become the primary State Road
60 route, and Main Street will
become a city street and will no
longer be State Road 60.
In addition to the $2 million-
plus from the FDOT, the city's

Superintendent Discusses

Proposed Military Academy


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

A meeting between School
superintendent Dr. Gail
IcKinzie and Bartow High
school officials involved with the
proposed Summerlin Military
academy have both sides very
)timistic about the academy
ending possibly in the near
ture.
The proposed 500-student
pacity military-style academy
plied for charter status last
r, but at the urging of Dr.
[Kinzie, the charter application
s withdrawn. Now school offi-
ls are pursuing the project as a
iool of choice.
"I think it's a viable program,"
McKinzie said about opening
academy as a school of choice.
i said she did not agree with
first attempts to create the
demy as a charter school.
\s a charter, "it sets it apart,
d of on its own," Dr. McKinzie
1, adding that as a school of
Ice, the academy could draw
existing district staff and
Id be similar to Bartow
national Baccalaureate or


Harrison School of the Arts.
"As a school of choice, it makes
it very much a part of the existing
program," Dr. McKinzie said.
The meeting was merely a dis-
cussion, to see how far along each
side was, and both said they were
very optimistic about the project
moving forward in the near
future.
Right now, the I',I---l issue is
land acquisition. While the school
is slated to be built near the exist-
ing BHS campus, the district is
looking into what site would be
the most accommodating and cost
efficient.
Some issues need to be
addressed with the Office of
School Choice. Dr. McKinzie said
BHS Principal Pritchard already
has a meeting scheduled with
Director Carolyn Finch.
Dr. McKinzie said the issue
was not yet ready to be discussed
by the school board, but once a
property was secured, the district
could move forward. However,
there are no garauntees on how
soon that day will come.
"When you talk about land
acquisition," said Dr. McKinzie,
"it can take a long time."


honored, the children of Happy Times said they are "daring to dream."

Fun Things Planned

In Downtown Bartow


Downtown Bartow is becoming
a mecca of activities.
From buying antiques to seek-
ing treasures to listening to the
legendary music of Patsy Cline,
there is something for everyone.
"Sweet Dreams A Tribute to
Patsy Cline" is coming to Bartow
at the next Friday Fest on Jan.
21, 5:30 8:30 p.m. on South
Central Avenue in Bartow.
During the show, C.J. Harding
will pay tribute to the legendary
Patsy Cline.
Ms. Harding will be singing
many of Ms. Cline's hit songs that
have been loved throughout the
years, such as "Crazy," "I Fall To
Pieces," "Walkin'After Midnight,"
"Sweet Dreams" and more.
Growing up in Savannah, Ms.
Haring fell in love with the music
of Patsy, Hank Williams, Elvis
and the folk songs of Joan Baez.
"Patsy Cline is all my mother
played," she said. "I learned to
sing from listening to Patsy.
When I was 14, I bought a guitar
and taught myself how to play
from a songbook."
In the 1990s, Ms. Harding
moved to Tampa and continued to
pursue a singing career. After
playing local venues, she formed
an all female band and eventual-
ly began playing on cruise ships.
Working with the band, Ms.
Harding found the Patsy Cline
hits were among the most
requested, so she created a trib-
ute show for Patsy.
The event is free, and beer,
wine and other beverages will be
for sale.


The event also will feature
children's activities, food from
local restaurants, and shopping
opportunities in downtown
stores.
Friday Fest is held on the third
Friday of every month and is
hosted by Main Street Bartow,
Inc. and the City of Bartow. This
month, Citrus & Chemical Bank
also is sponsoring events.
For more information on the
Friday Fest, call Main Street
Bartow at 534-4030.
On Saturday, Feb. 12, get up
early and head on downtown to
visit the Downtown Antique Sale.
The sale will feature Bartow's
first boot sale.
Have some treasures you'd like
to sell, yet not enough to bother
with a yard sale? Or perhaps
you'd like to have a sale, but don't
want people traipsing through
your landscaped yard?
Main Street Bartow, Inc., has
the perfect solution for amateur
retailers a car boot sale.
As the name may suggest,
these sales originated in the
United Kingdom, where a car
trunk is called a boot.
Sellers may load up their car
trunk, SUV or truck with items to
sell and drive to an allotted space
during the monthly Downtown
Antique Fair to begin selling.
Sellers are required to pay a
$10 fee for their space during the
fair.
The sales are being held to
coincide with the Downtown

Chamber Honors Champions

After carving a 16-block area
out of a newly-expanded "historic
district," Bartow city commission-
ers unanimously adopted a
tougher version of the city's his-
toric architecture preservation
ordinance.
The ordinance came under
strident criticism by a small but
vocal group of detractors.
W.A. Read, Jr., whose profes-
sional offices are within the dis-
trict, announced his plans "to
secede," saying of the 107-page
ordinance: "There's a lot of
baloney in here."
The ordinance could have been
reduced to three pages, he said.
"This is cluttering the public
record with a bunch of garbage.
"I defy you to tell me what to
do with my own property," Read
said.
Gerald Cochran, frequent crit-
ic of city government, told the
commission: "A person should be
able to do what they want with
their own home." Of the ordi-
nance, he said: "That's dictator-
ship."
He said the ordinance should


be submitted for public approval
in the city election in February.
Julie Cochran, whose Lightsey
Avenue home is in a 16-block
square bounded by Orange
Avenue on the west, Stuart Street
on the north, Kissingen Avenue
on the East, and Georgia Street
on the south, asked the commis-
sion to remove that section from
the district.
Mayor Leo Longworth recom-
mended that the commission do
so, and his colleagues agreed to
do so. Commissioners asked the
historic architecture review board
to take another look at that
neighborhood and see if it really
belongs in the historic district.
That area is in the extreme south-
west corner of the district.
Susan Henry, who lives in the
Church Street historic district,
said the ordinance "is good for the
city of Bartow." Restoration of
Church Street homes "virtually
eliminated crime" in the area,
and increased property values,
she said.
The new ordinance "is the cul-
mination of a lot of hard work


over the past three years" by the
historic architecture review
board, Planning Dir. Robert
Wiegers told the commission.
It gives extensive guidance on
appropriate renovations and new
construction in the historic dis-
trict, and requires a "certificate of
review" from the board on modifi-
cations to "contributing struc-
tures" within the district.
Copies are available from city
hall for $15 for a printed version
or $1 on CD-ROM, he said.
However, printed copies may be
obtained for free from the Central
Florida Regional Planning
Council.
There are three historic dis-
tricts. The largest by far includes
downtown Bartow and many of
the older residential areas in
Bartow, stretching from Church
Street on the north to Stuart
Street on the south, from
Woodlawn Cemetery on the west
to U.S. Highway 17 on the east.
Two other smaller sections
take in the heart of West Bartow
and the Palm and Evergreen
Cemeteries.


Bartow High and Public


To Share Summerlin Park


Perhaps as soon as June,
Bartowans will have joint use
with Bartow High School of a
new park, to be built on the one-
time Wilsons Pasture property
east of BHS.
It is a joint project of the city
of Bartow and the Polk County
school board, with an assist from
the Bartow Rotary Club.
Tentatively named Summerlin
Park, the facility will be for use
by BHS students during the
school day and by the rest of the
community after school hours.
The park draws its name from
Jacob Summerlin, the Bartow
pioneer who contributed land for
establishment of what is now
Bartow High School, as well as
property to make Bartow the
county seat and land for Bartow's
first two churches.
Plans for the park were out-
lined to the Bartow Rotary Club
by Terry Hunter, the architect
who developed the BHS master
plan.
That plan was created in 1998,
plotting the location for new cam-
pus buildings and projecting the
need for additional property to
expand the campus.
As a result of that study, the
school board purchased 17 acres
of land east of the high school
campus.
Since part of the land has a
stormwater catchbasin which
ranges from a large puddle in the
dry season to a lake during the
rainy season, the school board
would have been required to
fence the body of water, Hunter
said.
But by transferring the land to


the city for use as a park, the
need for the fence was eliminat-
ed.
Through property swaps and
joint use agreements, the city
closed the south end of Wilson
Avenue to allow expansion of the
campus across the street right-of-
way, and extended Jackson
Avenue south past the high
school.
The pond will be the focal
point of a park, around which the
city will build an eight-foot-side
asphalt walking and jogging
path. It will be lighted with
antique-style street lighting to
make it safe for use around the
clock, Hunter said.
The Bartow Rotary Club will
purchase a six-sided steel gazebo
to be placed at the water's edge, a
project to commemorate the
100th year of Rotary
International. Every Rotary club
in the world has been encouraged
to underwrite a major communi-
ty project to commemorate
Rotary's centennial year.
Farther around the park will
be a paved basketball court,
restrooms, and benches, Hunter
said. In the future, the school


board may add soccer fields and
play courts on the south end of
the property.
Other plans include linking
Summerlin Park to Nye Jordan
Park to the east and to Mary
Holland Park to the south.
The student parking lot at the
north end of the park will be open
for public use after school hours.
The city has received a
$245,000 grant for development
of the park, and Rotary has
pledged the estimated $40,000 to
$50,000 to purchase and install
the gazebo.
The bid date for the park is
Feb. 24, with construction sched-
uled to begin on or about April 4,
Hunter said. The target date for
completion is in June, with a fall-
back completion date of Sept. 30,
the end of the city's fiscal year.


Some Residents
To Lose Water
Late Tonight
Residents living in the
Wheeler Heights and Twin Pines
subdivisions, as well as the coun-
ty natural resource and sheriff's
offices along Endurance Road,
will be without water for a period
of time this evening
(Thursday, Jan. 20).
City crews will be replacing a
water main and hl:iir,-: out a
bad valve.
Residents in those areas will
lose water services starting
around 11 p.m. but should have
service returned around 4 or 5
a.m. Friday.

UDC Visits Historical Stanford Inn


Annie H. Darracott #791, 100-
year-old chapter of the United
Daughters of the Confederacy,
held its annual Christmas party
at the historical Stanford Inn in
Bartow.
Innkeepers George and Carole
Robertson-Burnett opened their
doors to approximately 25 mem-
bers. The Inn was decorated in a
Victorian holiday style.
During the evening, he inn-
keepers gave tours and enlight-
ened the guests of the local his-


tory of the house, which included
the movie debut of "My Girl."
Cakes, pies, cookies, and
other sweets, along with bever-
ages, were provided for the occa-
sion.
Commander Melvin Sellers of
the Sons of Confederate Veter-
ans, Maj. E.M. Law Camp
#1323, presented a program on
the "Major E.M. Law Park of
Bartow The Park that Never
Was."
This park was to be designed


like Munn Park of Lakeland.
Monies were collected by the
then local UDC Father Ryan
chapter and Bartow residents,
but the city's vision for the park
faded when the money was lost
in the stock market collapse of
the 1920s, Sellers said.
All are welcome to attend
UDC meetings held every fourth
Tuesday of the month.

Turkey Creek Middle Buys Gifts For Troops


BEFORE Thanksgiving break, the liberty
team of Turkey Creek Middle School was asked
by student Brittany Tidwell to participate in an
effort to raise money for the Bravo Company in
Iraq. The funds raised were used to purchase
Christmas gifts for the medical team and others


who have families and were not able to provide
them with gifts during Christmas. The students
raised more than $200 with their efforts. Many
students even donated their lunch money to sup-
port the cause. (Photo provided)

Hey Mom and Dad,

With security the way it is, and our camps being so spread out,
it's taking a little longer than expected for the letters for the kids.
But trust me, I'm working on it hard. I wanted to send you the
Thank You letter for the paper, so we could at least get that out.
So here it goes:

To the Great town of Fort Meade, surrounding community,
churches, schools, businesses, families and friends:

On behalf of the men and women of 2nd FSSG, 2nd Medical
Battalion, Bravo Company DET D, I would like to Thank You for
bringing Christmas to the desert for us. Your gifts, prayers and
support have touched our live in a way that words could never
fully express. Being born and raised in the Fort Meade and grow-
ing up in the surrounding communities, was truly a blessing.
Now with all the support that you all have shown me and my
brother's in arms, has proven what I have always known.
Myself and Soldiers would like to Thank You from the bottom of
our hearts, because without your support, Christmas would not
have been nearly as great as it was. Thank You again and God
Bless You and your families for everything you did for us.

I'm also including our website, so you all might see the lives
your gifts have touched. www.bravocompanykuwait.com

Summerlin Park: A Product


Of Working Together


Within six months, Bartow High School
students and adult Bartowans may be
sharing a new park.
It's a classic example of what can be
done when government agencies work
together for the mutual benefit of their
constitut.t.ns.
Tentattvlry (and appropriately) named
;,inimCrli1i Park, the new facility will be
b,i. ,:cist side of the Bartow High
J.c. i.O01 .'di ll rci :i .
A t-.,L:- ,I .uarter-mile asphalt walking
a.d jogging pxth, eight feet wide, around
the :tormwater catchbasin will be the focal
point. (That body of water varies in size
from a large puddle to a small lake
depending on the weather.) The track will
be lighted with the antique-style street-
lights that have been installed in the down-
town area and in the new BHS student
parking lot, making the track safe for use
around the clock.
Public restrooms and wrought iron
benches will add to the convenience.
A paved basketball court will provide
facilities for physical education classes by
day and pick-up games by night.
The major funding source for the park
will be a $245,000 grant secured by the city.
The Bartow Rotary Club will underwrite
a six-sided gaLebo at the edge of the pond
at a projected cost of $40,000 to $50,000. It
will be the club's gift to the community to
celebrate the 100th year of Rotary
International
The school board may add soccer fields
and play courts in the future.
Plans call for linking Summerlin Park to
Nye Jordan Park on the east and Mary
Holland Park on the south.
Planning for the park has been a cooper-
ative venture of the Polk County school
board and the city of Bartow from the
beginning. This once-rare concept has
been developed to an art form in Bartow,
and is being emulated throughout the
county.
When a campus master plan showed the
need to expand BHS to the east, the deci-
sion was made by the school board to buy


the 17-acre tract commonly known as
Wilsons Pasture (though it has been years
since any livestock grazed on it).
Since there was a body of water on the
property, slate school regulations required
that it be fenced. But by transferring title to
the city for a city park, that requirement
was eliminated.
As the agreement developed, the city
closed the south end of Wilson Avenue to
permit expansion of the campus across the
right of-way, and paved Jackson Avenue
on the eastern edge of the Summerlin Park
property.
The project goes to bid in February, with
a projected starting date of around April 4.
With luck, it should be completed in June;
with not-so-good luck, it should be com-
pleted by the end of the fiscal year on Sept.
30.
It is fitting that the park should be
named for Jacob Summerlin, a Bartow pio-
neer whose gifts of land provided for a
school and two churches, and insured that
Bartow would become the county seat of
Polk County.
It is doubly fitting that the park will
have links to Nye Jordan Park, named for a
man who served publicly as a city com-
missioner and privately as a milk delivery-
man to the poor, and to Mary Holland
Park, named for "the woman behind the
man," U.S. Sen. Spessard L. Holland.
All three of these distinguished
Bartowans served their community well.

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

Stop This Nouveau Cool 'Inaugural' Foolishnes


In the closest pageantry that
America can create to the corona-
tion of a new king or queen, the
United States is inaugurating a
President this week.
It is an inauguration, not an
inaugural.
Inauguration is a noun, a
thing; in this case, a ceremony.
Inaugural (in its preferred def-
inition in Webster's Third New
International Dictionary,
Unabridged, which was new in
1976, but which retains its like-
new appearance in our news-
room, because when in doubt Is
to the spelling of a word, we are
more likely to take a vote among
the news staff than to look it up)
is an adjective.
Even George W. Bush knows
the difference, and in some cir-
cles, that's saying a lot.
There are inaugural speeches,
inaugural motorcades, inaugural
galas, and undoubtedly a thou-
sand kinds of inaugural gim-


cracks for sale by sidewalk huck-
sters along the inaugural parade
route.
But hear this well: the event is
an inauguration.
From time to time, somebody
decides it would be cool to
change a word, or the pronuncia-
tion of a word. When that hap-
pens, the faux cool, seeking to
emulate the nouveau cool, pick
up on the misused or mispro-
nounced word, and it spreads
like citrus canker, and does about
as much good.
Some years ago, some nou-
veau cool person decided to start
pronouncing "divisive" with a
short I, as in "is," (whatever the
meaning of "is" is). It was wrong,
but it was cool, so the faux cool
followed the nouveau cool, and
everybody who wanted to look
"with it" picked up on the mis-
pronunciation div-is-ive.
Even countries are not
immune from nouveau cool mis-


pronunciations, but my now-64-
year-old brain cells can't come up
with an example at the moment.
For years, weather forecasters
talked about when hurricanes
would reach land.
Understood.
Hurricane is over water.
Hurricane is headed toward
us.
Hurricane will reach land.
A few years ago, some nou-
veau cool meteorologist started
talking about when a hurricane
would "make landfall."
"What the flibberdedigit
bleepedlyflop does 'make land-
fall' mean?" I asked my friend
Mary.
"That's when it reaches land,"
she replied, calmly, for Mary is
always calm. As our kids often
say, Mom knows everything.
Some years back, I heard one
of my favorite county commis-
sioners talk about flooding that
would occur "with a major rain-


fall event."
A major rainfall event?
Are we talking about may
- a storm?
A "major rainfall event"?
I suspect that is why she 1
the next election.
It is hard to trust the reins
government to someone wl
uses terms like "major rainf
event."
So let us bask in the pomp an
ceremony of inaugural EVENT.
but let us solemnly vow to vo
against any politician, tune ot
any newscaster, or cheer again.
any reality show contestant wh
refers to the event as "the inau
gural."
Class is dismissed.
Except for you there, the on<
who muttered about my "div-is
ive" comments on the language.
I have a nouveau cool dunc
cap in your size.

History From Our Files
Compiled from the files of The Democrat by Loyal Frisbie


Fifty Years Ago

Twenty-eight people received
hospital treatment Wednesday
night as the result of a collision of
two trucks, and eight are'hospi-
talized today. Bartow's 50-bed
hospital, already nearly full, was
swamped as four ambulances
and two automobiles screamed in
with victims from the wreck.
Four persons died violent
deaths in Polk County over the
weekend, as a rash of automobile
accidents gave the western half of
the county one of its bloodiest 48-
hour periods. Two drowning
deaths were reported Saturday
night before the highway acci-
dent toll began piling up.


Forty-Five Years Ago

As the result of a new nation-
wide numbering system just
adopted by the telephone indus-
try, Bartow will be one of
Florida's first two cities to have
all numerical, seven-digit tele-
phone numbers, effective April 4,
S1960. Telephone book containing
the new numbers will be deliv-
ered before the change.
The newly-completed Negro
wing of the Polk County juvenile
home here will be dedicated at 2
A p.m. Sunday with Dean Thomas
M. Jenkins of the Florida A&M
University law school as princi-
de 1 pal speaker, Judge G. Bowdon
riders lHunt announced today.


Forty Years Ago

Ralph Price has been named
Jaycee of the Month for
December. He was in charge of
the Jaycee Christmas Party for
underprivileged children and
was manager ot the club's soft-
ball team.
Bartow's first Ireezing weather


in a little more than a year -
unexpected until Friday sent
grumbling growers and garden-
ers out to protect their plantings,
and squealing children out to see
ever-so-light snow.
Polk County school officials
apparently have about six weeks
in which to come up with a plan
to eliminate racial segregation at
all levels, but still don't have the
official word.
Polk County Hospital facilities
may be more than doubled in the
next few years, if a study now
being made by hospital trustees
bears the fruit that county offi-
cials expect it will.

Thirty-Five Years Ago

Page One headline: "Mobile
Home Plant With 150 Payroll
Planned at Airport"
Leads are still coming in but
thus far sheriff's deputies have
been unable to identify the young
girl whose body was left in an
orange grove more than a week
ago. An autopsy showed that
death was caused by a blow on
the head but lack of other injuries
lead authorities to believe the
death may have been accidental.
A purse containing an estimat-
ed $400 in cash and checks was
snatched from a woman cus-
tomer as she started to pay for
purchases.in the Kwik Serve mar-
ket at Orange Avenue and Pearl
Street. Her purse was grabbed by
a man as she opened it and
revealed a roll of bills.

Thirty Years Ago

County Judge William A.
Norris, Jr., will be sworn in as
Polk's newest circuit court judge
this afternoon, succeeding Allie
H. Lane, who resigned from the
bench to re-enter private practice.


A lifetime Lions Club member-
ship was presented to William P.
Allen, retired appellate court
judge, during ceremonies at the
club meeting Tuesday. Allen is
the second lifetime member of
the Bartow club. W.O. Gibson, Sr.,
is the other.
Two Fort Meade policemen,
both former members of the
Bartow police department, were
hospitalized with injuries they
suffered just after Saturday mid-
night in a high speed chase south
of Fort Meade. Patrolman Joey
Ellis today is listed in "good"
condition at Bartow Memorial
Hospital. Patrolman Talmadge
Strickland was released from the
hospital today.

Twenty-Five Years Ago

Dr. Janet B. Sutton and William
G. Davidson have been selected
to receive the Bartow Rotary
Club's two community service
awards, President Ben Johnson
announced today. Dr. Sutton will
receive the Medal of Merit for ser-
vice within the recipient's voca-
tion; Johnson will receive the
Medal of Honor for service out-
side the recipient's vocation, for
his work with the Boy Scout pro-
gram.
The Democrat has been a
recipient of an annual media
award from The Florida Bar "in
recognition of outstanding jour-
nalism aimed at increasing public


understanding of the system of
law." The award was given for a
"Thinking Out Loud" column
written by S. L. Frisbie, IV, and
published on May 17, 1979. The
column "Defending the Guilty,"
discussed the obligation of the
legal profession to defend the
rights of the guilty just as vigor-
ously as the rights of the inno-
cent. This was the third Florida
Bar award won by The Democrat.

Twenty Years Ago

Eighteen Bartowans were
arrested this morning on drug
related charges, capping a three
month investigation of what
police described as street-level
dealers of cocaine, marijuana,
heroin, and other controlled sub-
stances.
Page One headline: "Old
Homeland School Slated to-
Become County Park"
A 3.5 percent increase in air-
port industrial park rental rates
was approved by the Bartow city
commission Monday night along
with increases in aircraft hangar
rental fees.

and two adults from two burning:
vehicles which had collided o0

Chamber
"Champions of the Chamber"
were celebrated at the Greater
Bartow Chamber of Commerce
annual meeting last Saturday
evening at the Bartow Civic Cen-
ter.
Some 500 people attended the
sold-out event and were treated
to a program centered around an
Olympics theme.
The program began with
Trish Pfeiffer, of Dreamstreet
Studios, bringing in the Torch of
Bartow to the stage from the
back of the civic center. The sym-
bolic torch had been passed
among Chamber businesses as
part of the countdown to the
event.
Once on stage, she presented
the torch to businessman Ernest
Smith, founder of Bartow Ford,
who lit the Olympic cauldron sig-
naling the start of the program.
Smith received a standing ova-
tion and was presented a plaque
and proclamation identifying
him as the official Chamber
Champion. Bob Ambrose, Cham-
ber board member and partner
in Bartow Ford Company, made
the presentation.
George Harris, chairman-and
CEO of Citrus & Chemical Bank,
also was honored for his contri-
butions to the Chamber's Lead-
ership Bartow program. The
Leadership Bartow award, pre-
sented annually to an alumni of
the program, was renamed in
Honor of Harris as .the George W.
Harris, Jr. Leadership Award.
The presentation was announced
:.by Holly Wilson, Leadership
!,Bartow Alumni Chairperson.
Harris did not know about the
,'honor previous to him being
--called on stage. "George, I know
:you don't like surprises. And, for
'that, we offer our sincere apolo-
'gies," Mrs. Wilson said. "But, we
'hope that. you will accept this
honor in the spirit of our appre-
ciation and gratitude for your
contributionss to the Leadership
Bartow prograni."
Harris founded Citrus &
Chemical Bank in Bartow in
1954. Since then, he has been ac-
tive in the Chamber of Com-
merce, and is the largest con-
tributor to Leadership Bartow.
In addition, more than 30 Citrus
& Chemical Bank employees
have completed the two-year
training program that exposes
class members to all facets of the
community including local in-
dustry, government, health and
human services and quality of
life issues. The program has
graduated more than 250 indi-
viduals since its inception in
1984.
"I've never had anything
named for me," Harris told the
audience after receiving a
plaque. "This is very special."
Harris remained on the stage
to assist Mrs. Wilson as she re-
vealed the. 2004 recipient of the
award, Brian Hinton, president
of Bartow Consulting and execu-
tive director of the Bartow Com-
munity Healthcare Foundation (
BCHF). He was praised for his
involvement in a number of pro-
grams that function to improve
the Bartow community.
Originally from Miami, Hin-
ton moved to Plant City in 1979,
and then to' Bartow in 1980.
"Though not originally from
Bartow, he has, adopted Bartow
as his home and has worked tire-
lessly on' its behalf," Wilson told
the audience. "He is truly a
champion, not only of the cham-
ber, but the entire community."
Through his work with
BCHF, Hinton was instrumental
in bringing Good Shepherd Hos-
pice, the Peace River Center and
Heartland for Children to the old
Bartow Memorial Hospital loca-
tion at the corner of Main Street
and U.S. 17. In 2004, the Univer-
sity of Soiuth Florida opened the
Rath Senior Conn'extions center
there largely through Hinton's
efforts. ": '
'Hinton also. is' active with
Bartow High School's Commu-
nity Advisory Board, is chairman
of the Chamber's Committee of
100 and co-chairs Bartow's Com-
munity Relations Committee. He
was recently named to the
County's 'Indigent Healthcare
Oversights Cbmmittee.
He is a member of the Ki-


wanis Club of Bartow and is the
treasurer for the First Presbyte-
rian Church in Bartow. Hinton
and his wife, Diane, have two
children, Nlatt, 24, and Laura,
20.
"The Leadership award repre-
sents the chamber's highest
honor and is given to recognize.a
Leadership Bartow graduate
who provides consistent leader-
,ship in enhancing the quality of
life in the community," said
Chamber Executive Director Jeff
Clark. The recipient must con-
tribute significantly to the cQm-
vrfit~fdt-ith iA n mpiasAs 'on
government, civic and social
service. They also must have cre-


Champion
ated a definite positive impact
on the community and be in-
volved on a continued basis. The
selection of each year's winner is
made by secret ballot of the past
recipients and the Chamber's
President. Hinton is a graduate
of the Leadership II class.

row, Bartow Municipal Airport;

Mart; Brian Hinton, Bartow

ceremonial passing of the gavel
by the Chamber's past presi-
dents to the current year's
leader. Barbara Lawn, director
of Parks and Recreation for the
City of Bartow accepted the
gavel from Royster.
Mrs. Lawn thanked the
Chamber members for their sup-
port of the organization. Becom-
ing Chamber president will be a
high point to her work in the
community and her career, Mrs.
Lawn said, as she begins looking
at retirement. She jokingly
promised her boss, City Manager
Joe DeLegge, that after retire-
ment, she had no plans to run
for City Commission where she
would then become his boss.

Chemical Bank won the coveted
red jacket earning the top spot

Avoid The Sun's Rays

No Matter What Season


During the winter months,
aany people are more concerned
vith protecting their skin from
he effects of the wind and cold
leather than from the sun.
But protecting skin from the
tom's rays is a must all year.
Ultraviolet (UV) rays can
cause skin cancer, the most com-
mon type of cancer in the United
States, and the rays do not stop
when the weather turns cold.
UV radiation also is reflected
or scattered by different sur-
faces. Snow, for example, can re-
flect as much as 80 percent of
UV radiation. Winter sports and
northern vacations can present
as much exposure as a day at the
beach.
Sand and sea foam also reflect
the harmful rays. While the sun
may not climb as high during the
winter, UV levels are still
strong.
Winter trips to tanning booths
also expose users to UV rays just
like the sun. In fact, a study by
the National Cancer Institute
found that using a tanning booth


more than once a month can in-
crease the risk of getting skin
cancer by 150 percent.
"Skin cancer, especially mela-
noma, can be deadly," Dr. Lily
Lai, a skin cancer doctor at City
of Hope Cancer Center in Los
Angeles. "Fortunately, skin can-
cers are preventable and highly
curable if found and treated
early."
To protect your skin, follow
these tips from City of Hope:
Avoid the midday sun from
10 a.m.. to 3 p.m.
Always use sunscreen with
an SPF of 15 or higher whenever
you spend time outdoors. Re-
member to reapply every 90 min-
utes or after swimming or exces-
sive activity.
Wear protective clothing,
such as hats and long-sleeved
shirts to block the sun's rays.
Avoid sun lamps and tan-
ning booths.
Always protect your chil-
dren. Damage from the sun can
begin in childhood.


THE ALLSTATE Foundation has set aside $50,000 through its *
Agency Hands in the Community Program to be given to fire sta-
tions across the state of Florida. Some of these fire stations were in
the direct path of the storm and sustained damage to buildings and
equipment. Others were spared the brunt of the hurricanes, but
joined in the the recovery by sending personal and equipment to
storm damaged areas. The Allstate Foundation received grant ap-
plications from more than 250 eligible fire stations. Out of those ap-
plications, 100 were chosen to receive a portion of the grant. Pic-
tured here, local Allstate agent Glenn Broom presents a check to
Rick Parnell of the Polk County Fire Departmant. (Photo pro-

In an effort to help Americans
stick to their resolutions to be
healthier, the USDA is offering
several tips to stay strong in the
new year.
Don't try to do everything at
once. Set one or two specific, re-
alistic nutrition and physical ac-
tivity goals and you will be more
likely to stick to them.
Focus on changing behavior
in small steps. Drink water or
low-fat milk instead of high calo-
rie beverages with your meals.
Eat a salad as a first course with
your dinner. Start your day with
breakfast. Walk an extra 2,000
steps per day. When dessert is a
must, make it fruit.
Write your goals down and
post them in a visible place, like
the refrigerator door.
Keep a journal or chart to
track your progress.
Reward yourself with a fa-
vorite activity when you reach
your goals. Watch a ball game or

Florida Southern Back on Track

With Much Needed Scoring Burs


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer
Florida Southern men's bas-
ketball may have appeared down
for the count after the longest
losing streak in 35 years, but af-
ter Wednesday night's 79-72 win
over conference rival University
of Tampa, the Mocs have re-
turned to .500 in the conference
and are right back up again.
Florida Southern Head Coach
Tony Longa likened it to a box-
ing match, saying Tampa, a
team that the Mocs have played
129 times now, seems to know
everything FSC tries to run on
both sides of the ball.
"You just have to find a way
to stay around, stay on your
feet," Longa said. "Hopefully you
can get into the second half and
give yourself a chance."
The Mocs (12-4, 3-3) did just
that. FSC trailed by as much as
11 and took a 34-29 deficit into
halftime but rallied to beat the
Spartans (11-5, 2-3) for the sixth
straight time.
"This is such a huge win for
our seniors," Long said. "They
have now swept Tampa at home
in their four years and have won
their last six games. That
doesn't happen too often. Tampa
is really good."
The 79 points of offense by the
Mocs breaks a four-game streak
of being held to less than 60
points, the first such streak in
more than 50 years at FSC.
Longa said his team had a
horrible first half, but come the
second, FSC was able to do two
things that have eluded them in
the past few weeks making
stops and scoring points.
Senior guard Reggie Richard-
son got in on one of the Mocs' 10
steals but, more importantly, fi-


With Fields Ravaged, Dixie Youth Tennis

Baseball Season Lies in Limbo New.


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

The destruction of last year's
hurricanes may have left Fort
Meade's baseball fields in tat-
ters, but one woman says she
won't let it destroy the 2005
Dixie Youth baseball season.
"Oh, we will have a season,"
said Lisa Shields, president of
the Fort Meade Dixie Youth
Baseball board. "It will be a little
different than normal, but noth-
ing has been normal since Char-
lie anyway."
Despite her.strong words, the
2005 season for Fort Meade
Dixie Youth won't be easy. Right
now, the youth ball field adja-
cent to Fort Meade High School
is in total disarray. Only two
dugouts remain standing, the
stored food in the concession
stand has long since spoiled and
the lighting and sound systems
need to be completely replaced..
According to Mrs. Shields;
FEMA has come by to inspect
the damages, to all but the con-
cession stand, and repairs may
take a while.
Despite all the setbacks, she
guarantees there will be a sea-
son, no matter what the prob-
lems might be.
"If there's 20 kids who want to
play, we'll have a season," she
said.
A town meeting is scheduled
for next week for parents to get
together and discuiss options for


the upcoming season. The time
and location of that meeting will
be scheduled after county parks
and recreation officials meet
with Fort Meade High School
representatives concerning alter-
native sites. An announcement
is expected by Monday.
Fort Meade is facing the very
real possibility of having to play
the first half of the season at
other cities' ball parks. The
county is scrambling to get the
fields back up to snuff, but the
process takes time, said Dennis
Harpe, recreation supervisor for
Polk County Leisure Services.
The county is working on set-
ting up an new, much more ad-
vanced lighting system, as well
as a new fence around the area.
If everything runs smoothly,
Dixie Youth Baseball in Fort
Meade will have a new, state of
the art lighting set-up that is
ready to go by mid-season. ,
"We know what we have to re-
place," Harpe said. "We just
have to get the time tables in
place."
"(The Fort Meade ball field) is
one of our highest priorities right
now," Harpe said. He added that
the two worst hit fields in the
county were the Fort Meade fa-
cility and IMC Park in Home-
land.
A joint effort between city and
county crews has begun the proc-
ess of dismantling the current
lighting system,, after it was
deemed unsafe and beyond re-.



pair.
In the meantime, Mrs. Shields
said she is currently sending out
sponsor letters to local organiza-
tions, including the Detroit Ti-
gers, which routinely sponsor
area baseball programs. She has
already gotten offers from Bar-
tow and other area Dixie Youth
Leagues to use their facilities
and play games against their
teams. East Lakeland has even
offered to share equipment.
Mrs. Shields says she is doing
all she can to prevent kids from
funneling off to other baseball
programs. She said she had al-
ready signed off 1'2 children to
play in Bartow and expects
much more.
Mrs. Shields is also working
with Bartow's Dixie Youth presi-
dent Joey Williams, in an effort
to persuade kids to return to
Fort Meade after a year or not to
leave at all.
She blames the lack of com-
munity support for the baseball
league's dire situation in Fort'
Meade. Only three people volun-
teered to become executive board
members for the league, and one
stepped down after sending her
son to play in Bartow.
"Nobody wants to' step up to
the plate," Mrs. Shields said. "If
the community cared, the county
would have been fixing the fields
in December."'

nally gave his team a lift offen-
sively. Richardson scored a ca-
reer-high 22 points on 5-8 shoot-
ing, including 2-2 from behind
the arc to lead the team in scor-
ing. He did his most damage
from behind the line (10-12),
many coming late in the second
half to ice the game. Richard-
son's slam dunk as time expired
was an exclamation point on a
much needed conference win.
"Reggie's a warrior. He just
gives you so much energy and so
much passion," Long said.
Longa also was impressed
with senior forward Kenny
Ebanyat's inside game. Ebanyat
scored 18 points on six of 11
shooting and pulled in a team-
high seven boards.
Senior center Terrence Tho-
mas added 10 points and fresh-
man guard Braxton Williams
added 12.
In a game that saw 56 fouls
and three players foul out, the


Mocs were able to benefit frn
the tightly-called game. Ma
Borders, Tampa's leading scoi
and the div-II assist leader, h
his first half minutes limited t
ter picking up two early foul
which Longa said, "got him o
of his rhythm."
The Mocs also caught a brea
when Tampa's 6'6" center Chri
topher Evans fouled out in th
second half.
"That was huge. Evans xa
kicking our tail in there," Longi
said.
Now that the Mocs have got
ten back even in the Sunshine
State Conference at 3-3, they
will have to play back-to-back
road games against two of the
conference's best.
On Saturday, Jan. 22, the
Mocs will travel to St. Peters-
burg to take on SSC leading Eck-
erd College. On Wednesday, FSC
will take on second place Saint
Leo.

EVERYONE NEED ENCOURAGEMENT


Usually, it is easier to find fault in someone,
rather than to appreciate the good qualities that
they may possess. Constantly criticizing a person
will only weaken their incentive to do their best,
or to be a better person; however, constructive
encouragement bolsters a person s enthusiasm
and ambition. Parents, teachers, and employers
who use the encouragement approach usually
achieve good results, and having a good attitude
is essential to doing a good job. Everyone likes to
feel good about themselves, and giving an honest
compliment to a friend or stranger will help lift a
person s spirit. I once knew an owner of a busi-
ness who would never compliment his employ-
ees, because he thought if he told them they were
doing a good job they would ask for a raise in
pay. .With this kind of attitude it is difficult to
keep loyal and good employees who feel that
they are contributing to the business; and in fact,
they may actually feel that they are being taken
advantage of. God wants us to treat others as we long
want to be treated, and sharing a kind word of you
encouragement to those we come in contact with nes,
reflects God s love and good will.

Reflections 0:


SFaith

By Roger Campbell


Did you find 2004 poor or, at
best, mediocre?
Why not thrive in 2005?
Here are five daily disciplines
to make this your greatest year:
Rise thankfully.
"Are you having a good day?"
I asked a bank teller.
"This morning I was able to
place my feet on the floor," she
replied, breaking into a smile.
And I knew immediately that
I was talking to a woman who
had discovered the joy of culti-
vating an all-day attitude of
gratitude.
Each morning when we rise
we choose to either be grateful or
grumpy; pouting over yesterdays
problems or praising God we're
alive and able to live another
day.
Pray expectantly.
Most people pray especially
when going through tough times.
Since many of these praying
ones don't expect answers to
their prayers, they keep fretting
over their problems even after
they've asked God to solve them. 1
According to the Bible, we can
pray and believe and receive, or
pray and doubt and go without (
James 1:6-7).
Speak kindly.
Through the centuries, care-
less and cutting words have
wounded hearers and brought
regret to those who spoke them.
Churches have been divided,
family ties broken, and friend-
ships torn asunder by unkind
words harshly spoken.
Many unpleasant memories
have to do with words, some spo-
ken to those we love and others
spoken to or about us. Let's
trade all cross words for kind
ones this year.
What we say reveals what
we're thinking; what we're really
like on the inside.
Kind words flow from kind
hearts.
Knowing this, the Psalmist
prayed for the words of his
mouth and the meditations of his
heart to both be acceptable to
God (Psalm 19:14).
Forgive quickly.
While the guest speaker at a
church, I stressed the impor-
tance of forgiveness. Five years
later, I was invited back to the
church to speak while the pastor

STEDEMapol


was away.
Following the morning s
ice, a woman said, "When
were here five years ago, ,
talked about the importance -
forgiveness. I needed to forg
someone, but didn't do so. I w
you to know that this morning,
have forgiven him."
It was a bittersw
moment. I was pleased to k -
the woman had experienced t
joy of forgiving, but sorry
had waited five unhappy ye
to do so.
Work worshipfully.
Some work to make a livin
others live to work. Wise on
make every hour of work an e
perience in worship.
One of the greatest discover
ies in life is learning our wal
with God is not to be limited 1
one day a week or one place tha
seems worshipful: "And wha,
ever you do, do it heartily as -
the Lord and not to men" (Colo,
sians 3:23).
A wise woman placed the fol
lowing sign over her kitchen
sink: "Divine Worship Conducte
Here Three Times A Day."
To her, the mundane had be.
come miraculous and all her
daily work worship.
The next time a friend ex-
tends a hand, saying "Give me
five," remember the five essen-
tials for thriving and apply them
to your life.
You've been down and de-
feated long enough. After all,
2005 is your year to thrive.
