Man Takes Cab to Commit


Bartow's First Bank Robbery;


Shot After Releasing Hostage


By JENNIFER STARLING
Staff Writer

Misty Spurlock, manager of
MidFlorida Federal Credit Union
in Bartow, has been in banking
for some 18 years, and never
imagined she'd experience a bank
robbery.
But on Monday afternoon, a
man walked into the bank and
handed one of the tellers a note:
"Give me everything in your
drawer. I have a gun. I don't want
to hurt anyone, but I will kill you
now."
A somewhat typical story in
many towns, this was the first
real bank robbery Bartow has
ever known. (One reported bank
robbery a few years ago turned
out to be an inside job.)
"This really was a big deal
because it's Bartow," Mrs.
Spurlock said. "But we were pre-
pared."
When the man left, the teller
told an off-duty sheriff's deputy
who was waiting in line that she'd
just been robbed, and Bartow
police, Polk County sheriff's
detectives, and the FBI were
called in.
"The teller did a fantastic job
identifying (the suspect)," Mrs.
Spurlock said. "She remained
very calm and cool. An FBI inves-
tigator said that, with her
description on paper, he knew
exactly who the guy was."
He was 39-year-old Wesley
Caruthers, a man already being
sought for allegedly committing
four other robberies in and


FISTS OF FLAME destroyed a woman's home
Wednesday night, sending dark smoke skyward just
after sunset. Owner Marlene Padgett was able to
get out of the house at 1035 South Dudley Avenue.
Firefighters got the alarm at 6:34 p.m. and had the
firie.under control in about 50 minutes. Three dogs
and a cat were thought to be in the
house. Two of the dogs have been
found alive, but the other two animals A
are still missing. Sparks from live elec- 7
trick wires popped frequently on the
metal porch roof (below) until city
utility workers arrived to cut the
power. Because the cause was unde-
termined, the state fire marshal is


investigating. Bartow Fire Department sent three
engines and 11 firefighters to the blaze. Mulberry
Fire Department was on standby for any other calls
in Bartow and responded to a traffic accident, BFD
Lt. Ken Wiggins said. (Staff photos by Peggy
Kehoe [above and below left] and Dawn Wade)


around Polk County since Jan. 4,
officers said.
Caruthers used a taxi cab to
get to and from the Bartow bank,
instructing the driver where to
wait in the parking lot for him,
and where to enter and exit the
parking lot, according to PCSO
spokeswoman Carrie Rodgers.
After leaving the bank in the
cab, he picked up Sandra Gibbons
of Lakeland, and checked into a
room at the Crossroads Motel on
U.S. Highway 98 North in
Lakeland, police said.
Deputies found Caruthers
there around 8 o'clock Monday
night, and asked him to come out
of the room, but he refused.
The PCSO crisis negotiation
team and emergency response
team were called to the scene, and
at 9 p.m., it became clear to the
deputies that Caruthers had a
female hostage in the room with
him, Ms. Rodgers said.
They made several pleas to
Caruthers to let her go, to no
avail.
Deputies were unsure whether
or not Caruthers was armed, as
he had shown no weapon during
any of the robberies, but they
wanted to bring about a peaceful
resolution to the situation, Ms.
Rodgers said.
Around 10:40 p.m., the woman
opened the motel room door and
attempted to escape, but
Caruthers grabbed her, using her
as a shield, officers said. He then
pushed her out in front of him,
then shoved her out of the way
and fled down the hall.


MidFlorida Heist Ends

108 Years Without

A Local Bank Robbery


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

In the 153 years since the
Readding Blount party put down
roots in October, 1851 to estab-
lish the settlement that would
become Bartow, the city has
experienced fires, hurricanes,
tornados, sinkholes, plane crash-
es, and its share of crime.
But the one thing that Bartow
had never experienced was a
bank robbery.
Bartow's first bank opened for
business in 1886, just four years
after the settlement established
as Fort Blount and later known
as Peace (or Peas) Creek was
incorporated as the City of
Bartow.
Not since the Polk County
Bank opened (with $25,000 capi-
tal) on the southeast corner of
what is now Fort Blount Park
had a Bartow bank been robbed.
That ended on Monday after-
noon, Jan. 24, 2005, with the rob-
bery of the MidFlorida Federal
Credit Union office at the corner
of Broadway and Van Fleet


Drive.
While we know of no place
that keeps such records, we sus-
pect that Bartow is one of the few
towns in America that can boast
108 years of banks without a rob-
bery.
(Polk County Bank was closed
on the Depression-era "bank hol-
iday" and never reopened; its
competitor, Florida National
Bank, survived. The old Polk
County Bank building would
later become the first location of
Citrus & Chemical Bank, found-
ed in 1954.)
Once, in the mid 1950s (if
memory serves as to the date),
Bartow police got a tip that a
bank robbery was planned. One
of Bartow's police officers armed
himself with a submachine gun
and took up a conspicuous post in
the middle of the 100 block of
East Main Street, half-way
between Bartow's two banks.
Florida National Bank was at
the southeast corner of Main
Street and Central Avenue (what

(See Page 9A Col. 1)


After ignoring several verbal
commands to stop, Ms. Rodgers
said, Caruthers was shot twice by
Deputy Sheriff Shawnee
McCawley.
He was rushed to Lakeland
Regional Medical Center, where
he initially was listed in critical
condition. His condition has since
been upgraded to stable.
Caruthers has an extensive
criminal history, not limited to
Polk County, Ms. Rodgers said.
He has been in an out of the Polk
County jail eight times since 1991
for various charges including
grand theft auto, burglary, and
attempted armed robbery.
He was released in May of
2004 after serving seven years of
a 10-year sentence for committing
18 bank robberies in Florida,
Mississippi, Texas, and
Louisiana, in 1996 and 1997,
Rodgers said.
In December, he failed a drug
test conducted as part of his pro-
bation requirements, and a feder-
al warrant was issued for his
arrest on Jan. 4 when he failed to
appear in court for the violation.
He had not been found prior to
the bank robberies.
Caruthers also is a suspect in
four other robberies this month in
Plant City, Kissimmee, Altamonte


Springs, and Mulberry, authori-
ties said.
When he is released from the
hospital, he will be booked into
the Polk County jail.
Officers did not say how money
was taken in the robbery.
As for Bartow's MidFlorida,
anyone entering the bank today
would not suspect that such a
frightening incident had occurred
there just days ago.
"Everything's back to normal,"
Mrs. Spurlock said. "We're back to
business as usual."

day, Manager Misty Spurlock said. They would have reopened the day
of the incident, she said, but investigators suggested the bank remain
closed for the evening. The suspect in the robbery, Wesley Caruthers,
was found Monday night at a motel in Lakeland, and was shot by a
deputy as he tried to flee. He is in stable condition at Lakeland
Regional Medical Center, and will be booked into the Polk County jail
upon his release. (Staff photo by Rustin Dwyer)

More than 1,00.0 senior citi-
zens were served last year by the
University of South Florida's
senior center in Bartow, Julia
Thrasher, coordinator of human
services at USF, told Lions Club
members during their luncheon
meeting Jan. 25.
Known as the Rath Senior
ConNextions and Education

a vision of Alfred Rath and the
Coalition of Aging Think Tank
(CATT), supported by the Uni-
versity of South Florida in Lake-
land.
Located in the medical build-
ing adjacent to the former Bar-
tow Memorial Hospital at 1350
East Main, it is the only such fa-
cility in Polk County.
The center represents 17

cent Florida hurricanes.
Those interested in receiving

Every year on the third Friday in January,
Florida's Arbor Day, the Lakeland Chapter of
Daughters of the American Revolution and the
Garden Club of Lakeland, Inc., plant two trees in
Lake Bonny Park. This year, two "little gem"
magnolias, provided by the Lakeland Parks and
Recreation Dept., were planted side by side and
dedicated in two ceremonies. DAR Regent Gay
Harlowe welcomed the 24 members and guests of
both clubs. Charlotte Cook, representing both the
DAR and the Garden Club, presided over the pro-
grams, which included a song she had written for


their fifth grade class some years ago about plant-
ing trees. Roberta Yori sang the song to the tune
of "Finlandia." DAR Chaplain Marjorie Wagner
read Bible verses pertaining to trees and gave
closing prayers. At the close of each service, mem-
bers added shovelfuls of dirt to the pre-planted
trees. Each year, the DAR honors its deceased
members while adding beauty to Lake Bonny
Park, the spokesman said. Both clubs show their
dedication to the Arbor Day tradition by giving
the valuable gift of trees for this and coming gen-
erations to enjoy. (Photo provided)

Here are some tips for taking those
first steps toward a healthy lifestyle:
Know what's healthy. Read nutri-

for fat content but also calories,
sodium and fiber. Include low-fat
dairy products, lean meat, fish, poul-

and cereals, and fruits and vegetables

Congress Should Make


Death Payment Meaningful


Survivors of each of the victims of the
terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center
on Sept. 11, 2001, received payments rang-
ing from the hundreds of thousands to mil-
lions of dollars.
A nation that was both grieving and out-
raged gave generously, and it took
Solomonic logic to decide how to divide
up the money.
Americans have a tradition of respond-
ing wilh their checkbooks when they can
find no other \ .,!y of trying to mitigate the
results of a tragedy. And a fine tradition it
is.
With the exception of the firefighters,
police officers and other emergency ser-
vices workers, the people who died in the
World Trade Center attacks had the tragic
misfortune of being in the wrong place at
the wrong time. The heroes were, for the
most part, those who tried to rescue them
at risk to, and often loss of, their own lives.
Survivors of a member of the armed
forces killed in the War on Terrorism get
$12,420 as an expression of gratitude from
the nation their loved one served in uni-
form. These are men and women who vol-
unteered for a job which they knew might
put them in harm's way, and who willing-
ly accepted that risk.
The inequity borders on the absurd.
Granted, no amount of money can make
up for the loss of a parent, a spouse, a son
or daughter. In this nation that prizes
human life above all else, life is priceless in
the truest sense of the word.
But a death gratuity to survivors of men
and women who die in the service of their
nation is a gesture that says: "We want to
help you in some tangible way to cope
with your loss."
And $12,480 doesn't say much.
Indeed, until last year, the death gratu-
ity was only $6,000. It was doubled last
year, with an annual adjustment for infla-
tion that increased it to the present level.
A move which appears to be enjoying
widespread public support, matched by


support in Congress, would increase the
death gratuity dramatically, perhaps to
$100,000.
Members of the armed forces can buy
$250,000 in term life insurance at prepos-
terously low rates, paid for by payroll
deduction. A soldier must specifically
decline the coverage, or elect a lower
amount; otherwise the payroll deduction is
automatic.
But for whatever reason, some do
decline the coverage.
A logical action by Congress would be to
pay for the $250,000 term life coverage by
government appropriation, rather than
offering members of the armed forces the
chance to buy it for a premium of a few
dollars a month.
By whatever means it chooses, Congress
should increase the death gratuity to a six-
figure sum.
It would not replace a member of the
family; it would do little to mitigate the
grief over a death.
But it would help the family move on
with their lives despite the loss of the ser-
vice member's income.
And perhaps most important, it would
add meaning to the nation's expression of
appreciation to the families of those who
willingly place themselves in harm's way
so that the rest of us can live in a safer-
nation.

OUR READERS SAY

Smith Started Petition Investigation


LAKELAND Regarding the
Home Rule Charter Committee peti-
tion effort (calling for charter
amendments to bring constitutional
officers under the charter as elected
department heads, limit them to
two consecutive terms in office, and
cut their salaries by half), because of
illness and financial hardship I
could not assist as much as I would
have liked. Because I believe so
strongly in the initiative and refer-
endum process, in Chm. Dewey
Smith's integrity, and the goodness
of all the volunteers involved, how-
ever, I pushed myself to personal
mental and physical limits.
I wish to make as many people as
possible aware of some facts which
to this point have not been reported
in the media.,
First, it was Mr. Smith who first
reported his suspicions of fraud to
Elections Supv. Lori Edwards when
Mr. Smith turned in the first peti-
tions to her. At that time, Mr. Smith
told Ms. Edwards that he suspected
at least one contract petition gather-
er of charging him for bogus peti-
tions, and that he wanted Ms.
Edwards to make sure that every
petition was legitimate.
Second, it was Mr. Smith who
first reported his suspicions of fraud
to the Florida Dept. of Law
Enforcement. FDLE advised him to
contact the Polk County sheriff's
department. On or about Oct. 12, he
met with Polk County sheriff's
investigators. Present were Mr.
Dewey Smith, Mr. Dave Montel,
Deputy Sheriff J. Ken Hall, Sgt.


William Nichols, Fraud Unit
Detective Stephen Menge, and me.
When all is said and done, Mr.
Smith will surely be a hero on two
accounts: (1) If truth prevails he will
be a hero for being the reason why
We The People will have the oppor-
tunity to decide for ourselves the
manner in which certain politicians
will serve, their terms of office and
their pay, and (2) Mr. Smith will be
the reason for the wrong-doers in
this case being brought to justice.
Third, Mr. Killebrew is a Polk
County business person and lobby-
ist. According to the Ledger,
"Killebrew's successful pipe-laying
company and behind-the-scenes
political acumen have quietly
turned him into an insider in the
halls of Polk County power. His
company, Killebrew Inc., made
.more than $12 million in public
money over the last thee-and-a-half
budget years laying sewer and
water pipes for Polk County utilities
customers."
Mr. Killebrew reportedly filed an
injunction against the elections
office to keep the supervisor from
performing her-duty. At issue was
the supervisor's decision to give the
Home Rule Charter Committee an
additional 30 days to gather extra
signatures in order to comply with a
7 percent per district requirement.
This decision was based on a
reading of the charter which Ms.
Edwards, Mr. Smith and other intel-
ligent individuals obviously had
reason to believe was the intent of
the charter.


Mail-outs from one of Mr.
Killebrew's companies encouraged
citizens not to sign the petitions.
Mr. Smith has proven himself to
be a selfless non-politician populist
activist worthy of the highest public
praise.
SFourth: State Attorney Jerry
Hill is a constitutional officer who is
twice on public record opposing the
Home Rule Committee referenda.
On Feb. 13, 2004, Mr. Hill went
before the Polk County Commission
and spoke against the referenda for
more than 15 minutes. On March 3,
2004, he went before the Lakeland
Republican Party Men's Club and
spoke against the referenda.
Does there not exist an obvious
conflict of interest? Should he not
recuse himself from further involve-
ment. As this kind of identity theft
has been reported in other areas of
our state in the past several years,
should the matter not be the subject
of a statewide grand jury investiga-
tion?
Is there also not a conflict of
interest with Sheriff Grady Judd
being involved? Mr. Judd is also a
constitutional officer on public
record opposing the referenda.
Mr. Smith told me that he has
been defrauded out of between
$6,000 and $10,000 by certain paid
petition gatherers. Such loses, how-
ever, are not his greatest concern.
Mr. Smith stated that he is more con-
cerned about the damage these peo-
ple nmay have done to the initiative
and referenda process.

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

TV Junkies Lost a King


"The King of ..." is an over-
worked phrase.
A recent magazine article
declaring Dick Clark to be "the
King of New Year's Eve" is a glar-
ing example.
But there are two performers
for whom the honor was appro-
priate:
Elvis Presley was the King of
Rock and Roll.
And Johnny Carson was the
King of Late Night Television.
I am a television junkie.
The first show I ever saw was
the Howdy Doody Show, which
was being aired at the moment
that the first black-and-white
television set was installed in my
parents' living room some 60
years ago. It got Channels 6, 8
and 13, with the help of a high,
motorized antenna that you
aimed toward Orlando or Tampa
using a control box on top of the
set. Programming ended with


sign-off around 11 each night.
A few years later, Dad and I
enjoyed watching Jack Paar, who
preceded Carson as host of the
Tonight show. Dad often com-
mented that Paar's ridiculing of
key members of the staff caused
frequent turnover.
But Carson's sidekick, Ed
McMahon, shared Carson's entire
30 years on the show, and outra-
geously dressed band leader Doc
Severinson was with him for
most of those three decades.
Carson succeeded Paar in
1962, the year I graduated from
college, and as life brought mar-
riage and children, my family
picked up my enthusiasm for late
night TV.
Our first child came toddling
out of her bedroom one night in
1969 to join me in watching the
marriage of Tiny Tim and his
teenage girlfriend, "Miss Vicki."
This is the same daughter who,


not yet in kindergarten; was
watching with me when Carson
broadcast a few shows from the
West Coast. The set was
rearranged.
"Daddy, Johnny's desk is on
the wrong side," she pointed out,
correctly.
Later, Carson had the show
permanently moved to "beautiful
downtown Burbank."
Of the various characters he
created for himself, my favorite
was his first, Carnac the
Magnificent, who chose ques-
tions to match answers that had
been "stored since noon in a her-
metically sealed Mason jar on
Funk and Wagnall's front porch."
A close second was the lecher-
ous Art Fern, who was host of
"Tea Time Movies." He hawked a
variety of products, including
"Dickie the Stick," which was to
sticks what the Pet Rock was to
stones. As Art Fern, he always


had a buxom young woma
his side.
He was a master of the dj
pan expression, delivering
long stare into the camera, e,
cially when a female guest inr
vertently delivered a dou
entendre line.
It has only been since his de
a few days ago that the pub
learned how shy and withdraw
he was off the set of the show.
Or that he drove himself
work for all 30 years, rather th
riding in a limousine.
Or that he took his lunch to t
studio in a brown bag.
SJohnny Carson set the sta
dard for late night television;
that doesn't make him "king" <
the genre, I don't know wh,
does.
Two generations of TV junkie
still stay up too late every night t
watch those who have followed
in his footsteps.

ter board were W.E. Blount, Jr.,
Earl M. Hatton, W.P. Tomasello,
J.H. Willson, Ernest M. Smith,
Leonard F. Blankner, Jr., and Miss

Thirty-Five Years Ago

Polk County school board
members once again find them-
selves in U.S. district court in
Tampa. A U.S. deputy marshal
interrupted a regular board ses-
sion to serve each member with a
summons to appear in the federal
court in a suit filed by a Lakeland
teacher.
Polk County voters soon will
be asked to approve a 2.25-mill
tax levy to pay for a $7.7 million
building program over the next
two years.
County commissioners are
studying what to do with Polk
General Hospital. Efforts have
been made by Lakeland interests
for several years to have the
Bartow facility closed and a new
one opened in Lakeland.
Commissioners are considering
whether to keep the present
building and expand it, build a
new one somewhere else, or get
out of the hospital business and
pay private hospitals to provide


indigent health care.


Thirty Years Ago

E.A. Bosarge, 76, first recipient
of the Bartow Lions Club's
"Outstanding Citizen" award
and a longtime Boy Scout leader,
died Monday night in the Rohr
Home after a lengthy illness.
By a 3-to-2 vote, Bartow city
commissioners have reaffirmed a
decision made last month to
allow telecast of city commission
meetings over cable television.

High School, was chosen Miss
Florida National Teenager from a
field of 46 contestants from
throughout the state Saturday
night at Winter Park.
A woman who just wouldn't
take "no" for an answer finally
got her way and was put in the
city jail Monday night. The
woman told the dispatcher that
she wanted to be locked up
"before I kill somebody." Told
that she could not be locked up,
she pulled a brick from some
books she was carrying, and
pitched it through the one of the
glass doors of the police station.
An acting sergeant promptly put
her in a cell on a charge of
destroying city property, under
$500 bond. The glass door will be
replaced with unbreakable plas-
tic.

Floridians Encouraged to

Celebrate Arbor Day Early


In recognition of Florida's Ar-
bor Day, Floridians are being en-
couraged by the Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
to protect the state's natural
woodlands, hardwood hammocks
and mangrove forests by planting
native trees and preventing the
spread of invasive plants.
In Florida, late winter is an
ideal time for planting native
trees, including the sabal palm,
the state tree, making Florida's
Arbor Day several weeks earlier
than the national observance.
"Trees play a primary role in
environmental protection by con-
serving energy, reducing soil ero-
sion, cleaning and replenishing
the air and protecting our rivers
and streams," DEP Secretary
Colleen M. Castillesaid. "Plant-
ing native trees will provide habi-
tat for wildlife and beautify our
communities."
Arbor Day, the creation of Ju-
lius Sterling Morton, first took
place in 1872 in Nebraska.
Throughout his career, Morton
worked to improve agricultural
techniques throughout the
United States, serving as Presi-

Spath Promotion To Benefit Bartow Chamber

snow called the Southeast Bank
building, though that bank dis-
ppeared from the local land-
scape years ago) and the other
(presumably C&C) was at the
northwest corner of Main Street
and Broadway.
Whether the rumor was false
or the robbers) were deterred by
the presence of a heavily-armed
Police officer, there was no rob-
bery.
A few years ago, police
responded to the report of a rob-
bery at the MidFlorida branch
then located on the south end of
the Bartow High School campus.
But after a short investiga-
tion, police concluded that it was
not a robbery, but a theft by a
teller and her boyfriend that was
made to appear as a robbery.
Fort Meade, on the other
hand, with one-third the popula-
tion of Bartow and only two
banks, has had five or six bank


robberies over the years.
The most bizarre involved two
robbers one of them drunk -
who hijacked the town marshal,
robbed the bank, then used a
stolen airplane for their getaway.
That robbery, which occurred
more than half a century ago,
still resurfaces occasionally in
newspaper and magazine arti-
cles.
The perpetrators were caught.
Less spectacular was a more
recent robbery, in which the rob-
ber attempted to flee the scene on
a bicycle, but was captured after
a "dye pack" of red dye in a bun-
dle of money exploded before he
got out of the parking lot.
In nearby larger cities, includ-
ing Lakeland and Tampa, bank
robberies have become so com-
monplace that they don't even
make front page news.
But in Bartow, after 108 years
without a bank hold-up, the rob-
bery at MidFlorida made history
as well as news.

Remember The Farmer On Check Out Day


It happens to the best of us.
You lose your job, your invest-
ment, your portfolio takes a nos-
edive, your debt gets out of hand,
or you're facing divorce.
Whatever the financial set-
back, taking corrective actions
early will help you weather the
storm.
The Florida Institute of Certi-
fied Public Accountants (FICPA)
offers the following guidelines
for coping with financial prob-
lems:
It's important to look realisti-
cally at your situation and bring
the family together to discuss
the matter.
Children sense difficulties at
home and being uninformed only
increases their anxiety.
You should work together, as
a family, to decide on a plan of
action.
One of the greatest challenges
involved in managing a financial
crisis is realizing that you can-
not spend the way you did be-
fore.
Careful planning and wise
spending decisions are critical to
Maximizing your income, accord-
* ing to FICPA.
If you are faced with reduced
income, cut back on spending
and develop a plan for paying
bills.
First, add up your current
monthly take-home income from
all sources. Consider whether.
other family members can con-
tribute income from a job, divi-

through other means, such as le-
gal recourse.
If you've lost your job, one of
the first things you should do is
apply for unemployment bene-
fits.
Each state has different eligi-
bility requirements for unem-
ployment insurance and bene-
fits. In Florida, you may get
more information and apply for
benefits by visiting the website
of the state unemployment
agency, located at http://www.
floridaj obs.org/unemployment.
Take advantage of job train-
ing, counseling, money manage-
ment classes, government pro-
grams and community resources
that can positively impact your
financial situation, FICPA rec-
ommends.
If your debts become unman-
ageable, contact the Consumer
Credit Counseling Service near-
est to you.
Coping with the stress and
pressure of reduced income is
not an easy task. There is often a
great deal of emotion involved in
financial setbacks. Take the time
to assess your financial situation
and determine whether profes-
sional help makes sense.
A CPA can provide overall fi-
nancial advice that can help you
overcome a financial setback, so
be sure to consult with a CPA in
your area to learn more about-
weathering financial setbacks
wisely.


dend, rent or other sources.
Then compare the total of this
income with the total of your
monthly expenses. Budget for
the most important items: hous-
ing, utilities, insurance, food,
credit payments, transportation
and medical care.
Remember, some bills are
only due a few times a year, so
you'll need to set aside some
money each month for those ex-
penses.
If your expenses exceed your
income, figure out the most im-
portant things you must spend
money on, and give up, reduce or
delay less important expenses.
Borrow only as a last resort.
And don't make any quick de-
cisions about your retirement
money, an FICPA spokesman
advises. If you tap into your re-
tirement funds, it's possible
you'll pay income tax, a signifi-
cant penalty and jeopardize your
financial future as well.
When your income can't meet
your expenses, do not ignore
your bills. Contact your creditors
and try to work out temporary
repayment arrangements. In
most cases, businesses are will-

Offer to pay a realistic
amount until you get back on

not to overestimate how much

in step with your agreement, the
lender may seek repayment


Winter Haven Hospitc.


During the long weeks of deep
winter when the weather is bad,
we are drawn toward warmth
and comfort.
Rich, calorie-laden treats be-
come more appealing, but as a
new year turns, many of us
make resolutions to eat less, ex-
ercise more and cut down on
empty calories. ...
There are lots of good ideas to
assist in our efforts. For exam-
ple, Taking Pounds Off Sensibly
or the TOPS Club recommends
soup as a healthy alternative to
high calorie, high fat entrees.
Soup has the advantage of low
cost, variety, ease of preparation
and versatility.
Before you reach for a can or
packaged mix, however, be
aware that its convenience is fre-
quently offset by high sodium
and fat content. One cup can
contain up to half of your total
recommended sodium intake for
the day.
Your best bet is homemade
soup and there are many recipes
that are not complicated. And
when you make soup yourself,
you have the added advantage of
a wonderful aroma surrounding
you for hours.
The following tips can help
you keep the calories down and
make you an accomplished soup
chef:
Use a blender. You can pu-
ree vegetables such as potatoes,
cauliflower or carrots to thicken
the broth. For those people who
have difficulty reaching the opti-
mum five to nine daily servings
of vegetables, pureeing vegeta-
bles in a hearty soup can help fill
in that gap.: It also is an effective
way to increase vegetables in the
diet of resistant children.
Make your own stock to use
as a base. Prepare it a day ahead
and chill it, removing any fat
that rises to the top before use.
'Or use low fat, sodium-reduced
canned broth as a base. You
won't miss either the fat or the
salt when you add all those vege-
tables and lean heat or seafood.
Boost the healthfulness of
soup by adding brown rice or
whole wheat pasta or serve the
soup with crusty whole grain
bread.
Many soups can be made
several days ahead and refriger-

The need for open-heart

surgery in East Polk and

Highlands Counties has

been clearly demonstrated

and we are anxious to

provide this vital service. j

We are in the process of building two
new large operating rooms which will
connect to our Ambulatory Surgery &
Diagnostic Center. We anticipate that they will
be completed in July 2005 and we will begin
doing open heart surgery at that time.


Prior to starting open-heart surgery we are sched-
uled to begin angioplasty in March 2005.
Angioplasty is the process where'an intervention-
al cardiologist places a catheter in the patient's
artery and a balloon is inflated to expand and
open a blockage within the artery. It is often used
in combin:ition with "stents," small metal scaf-
folds used to keep the expanded artery open..


Several experienced interventional cardiology
physicians from the Watson Clinic are already on
our Medical Staff. They are assisting with the
training.of our staff and will be doing the angio-
plasties in March. Dr. Kevin Browne is the
Medical Director for this new service. These spe-
cialists have a two-year contract with the hospital
to do angioplasties and following that time the
cardiologists, already on our staff, may recruit
other interventional cardiologists to provide thi"
service as well.


Dr. Jack Messina, from the Watson Clinic, will be
the Director of our Open Heart' Surgery team.
SJoining him will be his colleagues Dr. Andy
Sherman and Dr. Larry Sowka. This highly expe-
rienced team has already been involved with
planning the two new operating rooms and help-
ing educate our staff.

Dr. Messina's team will also provide perfusion-
Sists, heart pump specialists, who oversee and
operate the "heart-lung machine" during the
phase of open heart surgery when the heart is
stopped. They will also provide
Anesthesiologists, who are experienced in man-
aging open-heart patients throughout surgery.
Like the other interventional cardiologists, Drs.
Messina, Sherman and Sowka are already on our
Medical Staff.

In addition to the two new large operating rooms,
'built specifically to handle all of the sophisticated
equipment, we are building a new 8-bed
Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU).
Specially trained critical care staff will prepare
patients for surgery, recover patients immediately
after surgery and continue to provide care and
monitoring for patients until they are stabilized -
usually 24-48 hour. The operating rooms and the


By Feb. 7, the average Ameri-
can will have earned enough in-
come to pay for his entire year's
food supply.
"Americans enjoy the safest,
most abundant and most afford-
able food supply on earth," Flor-
ida Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson said. "Based
on U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture statistics, it takes just 37
days for the average American to
earn enough disposable income
to pay for his or her family's food
supply for the entire year."
Thanks to modern farming
techniques, America's farmers
and ranchers are producing more
food on fewer acres, leaving more
open space for wildlife habitat.
Precision farming practices
boost crop yields and overall effi-
ciency by using satellite maps
and computers to match seed,
fertilizer and crop protection ap-
plications to local soil conditions.

Other preparations are taking place to ensure the
scheduled March and July start dates. This
includes extensive training for our surgical and
ICU patient care staff. Nurses and other crucial
team members will be trained onsite under the
direction of Dr. Messina, as well as offsite at
facilities with existing open-heart programs.
Cath Lab staff are receiving' training under the
direction of Dr. Browne and Cath Lab Director,
Rob Roy, RN.

Additional plans include the opening of an
Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation program, where
post-bypass and post-angioplasty patients will
receive continued care after discharge. Outpatient
Cardiac Rehabilitation provides exercise therapy
and assists patients with successfully making the
lifestyle modifications necessary to prevent clo-
sure of bypass graphs or vessels opened by angio-
plasty and/or stents. The cardiac rehab program
will complete the 'comprehensive continuum of
cardiovascular services at Winter Haven Hospital,
providing the citizens of Eastern Polk County a
full-service cardiac hospital locally.

We are fortunate to have the Watson Clinic Team
of highly qualified, highly experienced specialty
physicians join our great team of cardiologists,
who have served the community so effectively

It's an exciting time at Winter Haven Hospital, as
we constantly seek to meet our Mission To
improve the health of the communities we serve
by providing high quality, cost effective care and
services. Working together, we know that we will
provide the very best physicians, the very best
staff, and the very best facilities, equipment and

Polk Teachers Earn Standards Certification


Fifty Polk County teachers or
guidance counselors have earned
certification from the Arlington,
Va., National Board for Profes-
sional Teaching Standards (
NBPTS).
NBPTS candidates go through
a rigorous, performance-based
assessment that takes between
one and three years to complete
and measures what accom-
plished teachers and school
counselors should know and be
able to do.
Polk has a total of 195 NBPTS
certifications. The 50 certified in
2004 surpasses the high of 43
certified in 2003. The school dis-
trict began NBPTS certification
programs in 1999.
NBPTS certification, which is
voluntary and not connected to
required state certification,
earns each teacher or guidance
counselor an additional
$4,059.80 bonus from the state
of Florida for 10 years.
NBPTS-certified teachers and
guidance counselors also are eli-
gible for additional bonuses
through a mentoring program,
bringing the total bonus package
to more than $8,000 per year for
10 years.
In 2004, Florida had 1,472
teachers and school counselors
achieve national board certifica-
tion. North Carolina was the
only state with more NBPTS cer-
tifications than Florida this
year.
Florida currently has 6,365
NBPTS-certified teachers or


guidance counselors.
Further information on
NBPTS certification is available
from Kathy Giroux, professional
development senior coordinator
for Polk schools, at 534-0740 and

For more than 50 years, only
eight people have directed the
Bartow High School band, with
tenures ranging from one year to
24.
John DeYoung, who was
bandmaster from 1960 until his
retirement in 1984, briefly
traced the lineage of BHS band-
masters for the Bartow Rotary
Club.
In 1952, the year DeYoung
started his career as a bandmas-
ter, Howard Stivers completed
his tenure at BHS.
DeYoung said he recently re-
'alized that students in his first
class of band students are turn-
ing 70 or 71 this year.
Stivers was followed by Hugh
Martin, who remained for five
years before leaving education to
become a professional musician.
He was succeeded by Robert
Apfelbeck from 1957 to 1960.

After DeYoung's 24-year stint,
DaLaine Chapman, fresh out of
Florida State University, became
bandmaster for four years, start-
ing in 1984.
She was followed by Rick Av-
erill for one year.
Jan Coolman became band-
master in -1989, remaining in
that post for 15 years until his
sudden death in 2004 at the age
of 44.
He was succeeded by John
Eckman, who had been band-
master at Fort Meade High
School for six years.
Eckman, who shared the Ro-
tary program with DeYoung,
noted that DeYoung was in-
ducted into the Florida Band-
masters Assn. Hall of Fame last
year, and commended him for
his leadership and accomplish-
ments.


While the three hurricanes
that swept through Polk County
in the space of 44 days last Sum-
mer and Fall disrupted life on
campus as well as in the commu-
nity, "the band didn't miss a
beat," Eckman said.
He commended the Band
Boosters organization as "one of
the best I've ever worked with."
Band students presently are
preparing for the solo and en-
semble competition that will be
held at BHS on Feb. 11 and 12,
and for the concert competition,
also at BHS, on March 4 and 5.
The band has applied to
march in the Gasparilla parade,
and will be performing at Disney
World later this year, Eckman
said.
Students also have formed a

The exhibition, entitled "Pic-
tures from Munn Park," consists
of drawings created by students
From age six to 14, drawn from
the vantage point of Munn Park
in downtown Lakeland.
The students were taught the
importance of value develop-
ment, perspective and texture.
Mother Nature created some

Company Offers Tapes

To Deal With Autism


As awareness of autism has
increased, the role of parents
and home-based therapy has
gained importance.
Yet for parents of the more
than one million American chil-
dren with autism, finding appro-
priate resources for home use is
a struggle.
"Launch into Learning" is
helping to fill that void with Max
and Friends, a multimedia skill-
building program for children
with autism and related disabili-
ties.
The program uses DVDs,
story books and music to present
proven therapy-based exercises
in a fun, simple format for chil-
dren with special learning needs.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and the Depart-
ment of Education, diagnoses of
autism have increased more
than 10-fold in the last seven
years and may grow to one in
100 children over the next four
years.
"We'd lose the kids to Bar-
ney," said Karen Walsh, a Long
Island autism therapist who,
like many of her colleagues, had
been taping her sessions for par-
ents to use at home. "We desper-
ately needed something with the
structure of therapy, but the fun
and humor of contemporary chil-
dren's media."
Walsh served as an advisor to
Launch Into Learning, a start-up
company in Greenlawn, N.Y., de-


voted to educational children's
media.
Max and Friends is organized
into volumes of related skills.
Volume 1 of the planned series
focuses on imitation, commands,
and matching.
Each skill is the focus of a
DVD in which Max, the lead
character, models skill building
exercises in short interactive
segments.
Three story books accompany
the three DVDs, providing an
additional opportunity to prac-
tice the featured skills.
The package also includes an
instructive manual designed to
train parents in teaching, main-
taining and generalizing the
skills, as well as a CD of 18 chil-
dren's songs.
Future volumes of Max and
Friends will address more com-
plex cognitive and linguistic
skills and independent subjects
such as safety and social skills.
"It's an effective tool for teach-
ing children with autism," says
Theresa McGuire, a special edu-
cation teacher in Long Island.
"My students request Max and
Friends as a reward."
Max and Friends is available
online at www.launchintolearn-
ing.org.
A percentage of the profits
will be donated to autism
groups.

FSC Students Create Website
For Polk Historic-' associationn


Florida Southern College com-
puter science majors created a
website for the Polk County His-
torical Association as the final
project in their web program-
ming class.
The site, www.polkha.org,
contains more than 140 pages of
data on the association and re-
produces 30 years of the Polk
Historical Quarterly.
"It is a terrific website, very
user-friendly, and really tells the
story of the Polk County Histori-
cal Association," said K.C. Jar-
rett, a member of the associa-
tion's board. "There just aren't
words to express how excited
and grateful the PCHA members
are for this website."
The project was part of a class
assignment in which the stu-
dents formed groups and chose
non-profit organizations for
which to work. They followed
proscribed steps for contacting
principals, gathering require-


me)....., ,.6d peribrmi, g ontoing
reviews with their clients.
Students participating in the
PCHA project include Eliot Dill,
a senior and the son of Nichoias
and Cindy Russo of Homosassa;
David Ginn, a senior and resi-
dent of Lakeland; Christina
Parks, a sophomore and the
daughter of Richard and Mary
Parks of Nassau, Bahamas; and
Josh Rosengrant, a senior and
the son of Jeffrey and Beatrice
Rosengrant of Lakeland.
"Hats off to Professor Michael
Way and his students for produc-
ing this fine website, which pro-
vides immediate access to all
those interested in Polk County's
history," said James M. Denham,
history professor and director of
the Center for Florida History.
"This wonderful site puts the
Polk County Historical Associa-
tion, its activities, and its publi-
cations at our fingertips."

Day two of the National In-
door Football League's winter
meetings was highlighted by a
surprise visit from Jerry Jones,
owner of the Dallas Cowboys.
Jones' visit followed a day one
visit by Ron Baynes, NFL direc-
tor of officials.
Jones talked about his early
days as the Cowboys' owner and
the work and dedication re-
quired for a team's success on
and off the field. He also talked
about the National Football Lea-
gue's search for an acceptable
format for football as an Olympic
event and alluded to indoor foot-
ball as a strong consideration.
Baynes spoke of the NFL's
partnership with the NIFL and
the plan to raise the level of offi-
ciating in the NIFL by outlining
procedures put in place, includ-
ing four regional supervisors to
watch over each of the four NIFL
divisions.
Also discussed was the up-
grading of game film to include

St. Leo University's Lions
ended 20 years of frustration
against the Florida Southern
men's basketball team Wednes-
day night and it took a former
Moccasin to do it.
Behind 19 points from confer-
ence scoring leader Marquis
McCullough and 13 from Richard
Blue off the bench, St. Leo de-
feated Florida Southern 70-65,
ending a 44-game losing streak
to the Moccasins. That streak
had dated back to January 26,
1985 (20 years to the day) when
the Lions last earned a win over
the Mocs, 71-66. The 44-game
winning streak had been the
longest in NCAA Division II his-
tory by one team over another,
the third longest at any NCAA
level and the longest current one.
St. Leo ended that streak be-
hind head coach Mike Madagan,
an assistant at Florida Southern
from 1992-95.
St. Leo (8-10, 4-3) trailed 57-
50 after Allen Gilberry hit a
three-pointer for the Moccasins
(12-6, 3-5) with 7:57 to play. The
Lions then went on a 7-0 run
with Blue hitting a jumper and
three-pointer and McCullough ty-
ing the game on another jump
shot with 5:24 remaining.
The Moccasins briefly took a
59-57 lead when Terence Thomas
converted two free throws at the
4:58 mark. Two possession later,
McCullough came up with a steal
and set up Blue for a break-away
three-pointer that gave St. Leo
the lead for good, 60-59 with 4:36
to play.
Blue ended the game five-for-
five from the floor and three-of-
three from behind the arc. He

Traveling Exhibit on Roswell


Kicking off its U.S. tour, "The
Roswell Exhibit," has opened to
the public at the Southwest Flor-

Meyers.
In its debute, the exhibit arti-
facts, documents and dioramas
and lets visitors draw their own
conclusions.
The 1947 crash of something
in the desert north of Roswell,
N.M. remains a mystery. An en-
tire sub-culture has grown up
around Roswell, sparking con-
spiracy theories, accusations of
military and government cover-
ups, inspiring dozens of movies,
TV shows, documentaries and
seminars in an attempt to deter-
mine what happened.


"The Roswell Exhibit" ex-
plores the timeline and events of
the Roswell Incident, tracing the
people, military and civilian
alike, who were involved at
Roswell.
The Roswell Exhibit will be on
display through Aug. 12.
The museum is open Tues-
days through Saturdays from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from
noon to 4 p.m.

ing the game, averaging just 6.8
points.
McCullough scored St. Leo's
next five points to put the Lions
ahead 65-60 and complete a 15-3
run that spanned seven minutes.
That took the game inside a min-
ute to play wehn a three-point
play by Thomas with 57.4 sec-
onds left pulled the Mocs within
65-63.
McCullough then missed a
shot on St. Leo's next trip down
the court, but Larry Henderson
grabbed the offensive rebound,
was fouled and hit two free
throws.
Down by four with 25 seconds
to play, Florida Southern missed
two three-pointers on its next
possession before McCullough
went to the line with 9.3 seconds
left and sealed the game with
two free throws.
Kenny Ebanyat led Florida
Southern with 18 points and 15
rebounds, including 12 and 11 in
the second half. Boykin scored 15
and had three steals while Tho-
mas added a season-high 14
points and seven boards.
With the 44-game streak
ended, the nation's longest win-
ning streak by one team over an-
other now belongs to Division III
Richard Stockton (N.J.) which
has won 40 straight over Rut-
gers-Camden. The all-time, all-
divisions record is 52 straight
wins by UCLA over California
from 1961 to 1985.
Florida Southern will be off
this weekend before hosting
Nova Southeastern on Monday
night at 7:30 p.m. at Jenkins
Field House.


Panfish...sunfish.... Here in
the Deep South, we call them
bream. They are those deep-bod-
ied fish that occupy pretty much
every body of water in Florida,
according to the Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC). Bream can be scrappy
enough to put up a decent fight
for anglers who use light tackle,
or a small child can land them
with a cane pole.
Bluegill, redear sunfish (shell-
crackers), redbreast sunfish,
spotted sunfish (stumpknockers)
and warmouth, deep-fried with
hush puppies and cheese grits on
the side make up a traditional
southern feast that's hard to
match anywhere else in the
world.
The most popular bream in
these parts is the bluegill, basi-
cally because it is the most abun-
dant and one of the tastiest.
People catch them on earth-
worms, crickets and grass
shrimp. They'll also hit little
spinner baits, popping bugs and
sinking flies. The state record for
bluegill is 2.95 pounds.
Shellcrackers taste just as
good as their bluegill cousins,
but they're bigger. In fact, the
state-record shellcracker is a
4.86-pound monster. Shellcrack-
ers go for worms, grass shrimp,
crickets, snails and clams. Fly-
fishermen. bag a few here and
there, but shellcrackers don't
seem to care much for artificial
baits.


For other types of bream,
earthworms are the bait to use.

Yoga Classes
IMusings From God's Penman Offered at

Holy Trinity


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER


One item topping my list of
New Year's resolutions could
potentially alter my life, as I now
know it.
And it has to do with my rela-
tioiship to the Gracious Mistress
of the Parsonage.
I'm not inferring any trouble in
paradise these days; I wouldn't
know if there was trouble, any-
way. Nevertheless, I think my
relationship to her could improve
100 percent which needs a fool-
proof plan.
Being a certified fool, all I need
is a plan.
Back in October, the folks at
the church we serve sent my wife
and me to St. Augustine as a gift
from the congregation. It was a
delightful surprise. We never tire
of spending time in the Ancient
City.
One negative aspect to the
whole plan: no provision was
made for our return. However, to
quote Martha Stewart, I told my
congregation, "I'll be back."
Nothing is more relaxing than
taking off for a few days of read-
ing, writing, and just plain goof-
ing off.
I have the latter down to a sci-
ence. At least that's what my wife
tells me, and no one has ever
accused her of lying.
It did not take us long to pack
a few things in a suitcase and
head for our mini-vacation.
We arrived at one of our
favorite motels, registered at the
front desk, and quickly went to
our room and unpacked all our
things.
For .me, unpacking meant
unlocking the door, walking
inside, and throwing myself on
the,bed. It doesn't take me long
unwind.
However, the Gracioius
Mistress of the Parsonage takes
more time and effort to get into
the vacation spirit. She has to
unload the car, unpack the suit-
cases, clean the motel room, and
make sure we have enough towels
and washcloths.
I got tired just watching her go
through her routine. In fact, it
was so bad I had to leave the
room and go out to the pool.
Three hours later, I returned to
the room and found her sitting on
the bed, watching TV.
"Aha," I said as I entered in the
room, "I see you're finally in the
vacation spirit.'"
And so our mmini-vacation was
under way, full steam ahead.


Episcopal


Christ Episcopal Church in
Fort Meade will hold its annual
Shrove Tuesday pancake supper
on Feb. 8, from 4:30 to 7 p.m.
The supper will be held in the

Broadway and North Cleveland
Avenue.
The annual event serves as a

Wednesday on Feb. 9.
The supper includes pancakes,


sausage, and a beverage.
The cost of a meal is a dona-
tion. Take-out meals will be avail-
able.

gram of the church.

Beware Your

Self-Serving Bias

We tend to have a self-serving bias in many areas
3 of daily life. To illustrate this, the comedian George
Carlin once said, Why is it that everyone driving
slower than me is an idiot and everyone driving
faster than me is a maniac? The reason for this is
our self-serving bias. We tend to see things our way,
and to assume that others are just wrong. Consider
how we tend to judge ourselves and others: we often
judge others harshly in exactly the same circum-
stances where we would judge ourselves charitably.
For example, when we give a small tip at a restau-
rant, we are likely to rationalize that it is because of
poor service; however, when someone else leaves a
small tip, we are likely to judge that the person is
cheap. Our judgements, whether about ourselves or
others, tend to be rationalizations, which are essen-
tially defense mechanisms designed to protect our
ego. And that, in the final analysis, may be the rea-
son we have this self-serving bias: to protect our
egos. We are naturally selfish creatures, and the
sooner we realize this, the easier it is to overcome
our self-serving biases.

Resurrection Catholic to Hold
Mardi Gras Festival Feb. 4-6


Christ Episcopal Church Plans
Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper


Stretching out before us were
five days of unrelenting loafing.
We decided to make a game of it.
We were going to see who could
loaf the best during our week.
I assumed I had the edge on
this game. After all, I've had more
experience with loafing than my
wife. I forget what the prize was,
but it seems to me it had some-
thing to do with serving breakfast
in bed to the winner.
The chief object of the game
was control of the TV remote con-
trol.
The rule stated, at least my
wife told me it did, you could not
take the remote out of the other
person's hand. I agreed to the
rules of the game and the game
was afoot.
Fortunately, I controlled the
remote control in the beginning.
The cunningness of my wife soon
came to the forefront.
I had no idea that she, the
mother of my children, would
play dirty. At times, I regret being
such a gentleman.
Let me show you what I mean.
I had the remote control for
about 20 minutes when my wife
said, "Honey, I left a book in the
car. Would you be a dear, and go
to the car and get it for me?"
Without pausing to think,
something quite common for me, I
laid down the remote control and
headed for the door.
Quick as a flash, I retrieved
the book from the car. When I get
back to the room, my wife was sit-
ting on the bed, with pillows
behind her and the remote control
in her hand.
But more than that, a grin was
smeared all over her face.
I had been snuckered. And this
would not be the last time.


I


That was Monday. On Tuesday,
I finally regained control of the
remote control and was right in
the middle of an old Western
movie when my beloved made her
next move.
"Honey, I'm so thirsty, would
you go and get me a soda from the
machine down front?"
Again, without thinking, I rose
to the occasion and bolted for the
door on what I thought was an
errand of mercy. When I returned
with the ice-cold soda, there my
beloved was, sitting on the bed,
with pillows behind her and the
remote control in her hand.
By Thursday, I was catching
up. Early in the morning, I pos-
sessed the remote.
I think my mistake on
Thursday was feeling a little too
confident in myself. Around 4
o'clock in the afternoon, my wife
looked at me and said, "You really
need to take a shower."
The tiny gray cells were not
vibrating, and I immediately
headed for the bathroom and took
a shower. On coming out of the
bathroom, I was greeted with her
sitting on the bed, with pillows
behind her and the remote control
in her hand.
Again, that familiar smirk was
smeared all over her face.
I must confess, and it's hard for
me to do it, but my wife is a bet-
ter loafer than I am.
It looks like in 2005, control
will be a remote possibility for
me.
The key to a solid marriage
relationship, however, is not con-
trol, but consent to mutual
respect.
"Submitting yourselves one to
another in the fear of God."
(Ephesians 5:21 KJV.)

Reflections On


? Faith

SBy Roger Campbell


Out of My Range


by Pawn Wade


"Somebody's made a payment
on my credit card."
Risking sounding like
Goldilocks, that was my conclu-
sion after going over my monthly
credit card statement.
There it was: the amount of
the generous payment even
the check number.
Perhaps I had made the pay-
ment and neglected to record it
in my checkbook; it wouldn't
have been the first time.
But now the porridge thick-
ened. After going over my check
register, I discovered the check
number listed on the credit card
statement didn't correspond to
any I had written; the payment
credited to me had been sent by
someone else.
This unexpected windfall
seemed too good to be true. And,
of course, it was.
A closer look at the statement
revealed that the payment on
this check had been stopped, the
amount added back to my debt,
and I had been charged a $10 fee
for stopping payment on a check
I had neither sent nor stopped.
Evidently my unknown (and
temporary) benefactor had sent
a payment on his or her account
that was mistakenly applied to
mine. When credit for the pay-
ment wasn't found on the next
statement, payment on the check
was stopped and another issued.
So the mystery was solved. Al-
most. Don't forget I was still out
$10.
A call to the 800 number on
my bill brought a customer serv-
ice representative to the phone
who was both helpful and apolo-
getic. Best of all, she was quick
to deduct the $10 stop payment
charge from my account.
When I expressed apprecia-
tion to this courteous customer
service person, I added a ques-
tion to let her know I was not
only grateful for her help with

Florida Pops is seeking sub-

tian.

my problem, but was interested
in any she might be facing.
That was when she told me
about the grief she was feeling
over the recent deaths of her two
brothers.
Now I knew that this mix-up
on my account had happened so
I could share the grief of a hurt-
ing woman in a distant state -
comforting her, praying for her,
and sending her one of my books
intended to bring faith to people
going through tough times.
While this experience had
started with a mistake, it had
placed me in the middle of a
miracle one arranged by our
loving Lord to bring comfort and
faith to a person who needed
someone to care.
Sorrow frequently lurks be-
hind smiles. We encounter trou-
bled people every day, but sel-
dom sense their pain.
Many feel like the prophet,
Jeremiah, who, when everything
was going wrong, cried, "Is it
nothing to you who pass by?"
Caring for hurting ones dem-
onstrates our faith is real (James
1:27).
God cares for us and we're ob-
ligated to care for others. Follow
the journey of faith through the
centuries and you'll find yourself
on a trail of mercy and compas-
sion.
But there is another dimen-
sion to caring revealed by our
Lord when He said: "I was hun-
gry and you gave me food; I was
thirsty and you gave Me drink; I
was a stranger and you took Me
in; I was naked and you clothed
Me; I was sick and you visited
Me; I was in prison and you
came to Me" (Matthew 25:35-36).
Reaching out to troubled peo-
ple has eternal implications:
every touch of compassion ex-
tended in the name of the Lord,
touches Him.

"The 'Super' March for Jesus
calls Christians of all denomina-
tions to unite and take the joy of
knowing Jesus beyond the
church walls and into the streets
with prayer and praise," said
Jenny Howard, 'Super' March for
Jesus coordinator. "The 'Super'
March is not a project, not politi-
cally motivated, and there is no
hidden agenda. We simply come
together joyfully to extrava-
gantly celebrate the Lord Jesus
Christ and pray for the Super
Bowl as well as, our city, our na-
tion, and the world."
Equipped with a $1 songbook
and prayerscript, every marcher
will participate by singing the
lyrics which will be broadcast
over mobile sound systems. The
march concludes with a short
prayer rally led by local pastors.
A love offering will be col-

1 teaspoon fresh basil,
chopped
1/8 teaspoon salt

pepper
Herb Oil: In a medium
saucepan blanch chives, parsley,
watercress and tarragon in boil-
ing salted water, then immedi-
ately put them in cold water to
stop cooking process and drain.
Roughly chop the herbs,
squeeze out excess water, and
place in blender with enough
grapeseed oil to cover. Pur6e

Fall In Love


With


Tomatoes


Ahhhhh tomatoes!
After a season fraught with
bad weather pushed tomatoes to
record high prices, the fruit is
making a return to the grocery
stores at a more reasonable sell-
ing price.
The tomato is nutritious and a
delicious treat, and even when
not vine-ripened can be made into
fried green tomatoes a special
southern dish.
Lycopene, an antioxidant, is in
tomatoes and research is being
done to discover all the health
benefits of this popular fruit.
And if the health benefits don't
make you want to run to the store
for a vine-ripe tomato, consider
the tomato's wild side the
tomato is related to nightshade.
That poisonous plant the tomato
family's black sheep.
Additionally, the tomato is an
American original. It is native to
the Americas, and was first culti-
vated by the Aztecs and Incas
around 700 A.D.
And while the French referred
to the fruit as "the apple of love"'
and the Germans called it "the
apple of paradise," the British
were afraid of the it and wouldn't
use it as food.
That same fear was passed to
the colonists until the early 19th
Century, when Creoles in New
Orleans made their dishes
famous with spice and tomatoes.
People now love the tomato, as
it is easy to plant and grow in
temperate regions. Even those
with a black thumb can usually
produce a tomato.
In cooking, the tomatoes uses
are legendary they can be a
sauce, side dish, part of a salad or
even a little bowl to hold egg
salad or tuna salad for a pretty
lunch.
