Tearing Down to Build Up


Six More Parcels Approved

For 'Low Density' Housing;


TAKING A BITE out of the old Bartow Ford building, demolition additional 28,000- square-foot garden center will be filled with flow-
equipment works to clear the site at Van Fleet Drive and Wilson ers, bushes, trees and garden supplies tailored to the Florida climate.

Publisher

In the face of increasing oppo-
sition from neighbors who see
new, high density subdivisions as
a threat to their lifestyle and
property values, Bartow's plan-
ning and zoning board moved for-
ward six parcels of property for
residential development.
Zoning board members said
that their recommendations to
zone and/or classify the parcels as
"low density residential" does not
mean that they will be zoned with
the city's least restrictive develop-
ment standard, R-1.
The low density residential
classification, or LDR, allows up
to six homes per acre. But
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
said that because of the amount
of land taken up by streets and
other infrastructure, and with the
minimum standards for lot
frontages, it is not possible to
build more than 3.3 homes per
acre.
That was little comfort to oppo-
nents, several of whom predicted
that developers will try to find
ways to approach six homes per
acre.
Some suggested that the city


needs a lower density standard
than LDR, a standard that would
permit only one or two houses per
acre. Zoning Board Members
Drew Guffey and Bo Raulerson
agreed that might help promote
larger lots.
For nearly three hours of pub-
lic hearings, the board listened to
assertions by Wiegers that the
proposed densities were in keep-
ing with the neighborhoods, and
heard opponents voice concerns
about the number of houses
which potentially could be built
on each of the six parcels. In each
case, the board voted to recom-
mend to the city commission
approval of the annexations and
LDR land classifications, though
in one instance, the vote was 2-to-
1 with one abstention.
These were the parcels on
which action was taken:
Annexation of 16.7 acres of
land on the north side of Gandy
Road, between Units 1 and 2 of
Peace River Estates. Bill Fritze,
appearing for the applicant,
Gandy Grove, LLC, said the
developer plans to build three
units per acre. The land is next to
the Peace River drainage canal,
but is not in the floodplain, he
said.


Kay Blocker, who owns a home
on a six-acre site adjacent to the
land, expressed concern about the
density, saying "we don't want
another low income housing pro-
ject."
Sharon Manfready, whose
home backs up to the land, was
even more emphatic. "I don't
want it; a lot of us don't want it.
We want to be left alone," she told
the board.
Assignment of the LDR land
use to 66 of 183 acres of land pre-
viously annexed. The land is
owned by Jack and Bett James,
and part of it is in the proposed
Silver Companies "active adult"
development between U.S.
Highway 98 and E.F. Griffin
Road. The northern 66 acres will
be LDR, and the balance will
remain agricultural. The property
was annexed last Summer.
Brent Geohagan, attorney for
John and Terry Frost, who have
threatened to file suit to block the
Silver Companies development,
reiterated his past arguments
that the development is incom-
patible with surrounding proper-
ties and is "a proliferation of
urban sprawl."

Commercial, Residential


New Shopping Center Development Proposed


In Prospect Near Wal-Mart On State Road 60 West
i .. Plans to develop 300-plus acres said. Plans call for two e


Another shopping center may
be in prospect on a 19.2-acre par-
cel of land west of Wal-Mart, if a
prospective buyer can persuade
Wal-Mart to allow it.
In 1991, Wal-Mart gave the
city the parcel in order to avoid
going through the development of
regional impact process for its
shopping center at Van Fleet
Drive and U.S. Highway 17,
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers told
the planning and zoning board.
The transfer carried the stipu-
lation that the city would main-
tain the land as "recreation and
open space," which- prohibits
development on the site.
The city has had "a number of
inquiries" about purchasing the
property, prompted not only by its
proximity to Wal-Mart but by the
widening of Van Fleet Drive,


Wiegers said. He has told each
interested party that it would be
up to the purchaser to negotiate
with Wal-Mart for removal of the
prohibition on development, he
said.
The city has made no progress
in attempting to get Wal-Mart to
allow development, he added.
Frontier Development has
asked the city for first option on
the property, and is willing to
work with Wal-Mart to remove
the restriction, Wiegers said. In
return, Frontier wants the city to
waive its usual policy of calling
for bids.
He recommended that the city
establish a fairly short timetrame
for Frontier to negotiate with
Wal-Mart.
Another firm has asked for
next place in line behind Frontier


if that company is unable to work
out a deal with Wal-Mart, he said.
Wiegers said he didn't want to
put the property out for bid
"because you might have Joe
Schmoe from the public come in
with a high bid."
Mike Gallagher of the Peterson
and Myers law firm in Lake
Wales said that Frontier, his
client, has worked with Wal-Mart
in other cities, and has estab-
lished a rapport with the compa-
ny.
Mort O'Boyle with Frontier
said the four-year-old company
builds shopping centers, and
would negotiate with Wal-Mart
not to build a facility that would
compete directly with it.
Zoning Board Member Drew
Guffey asked if the public could
object to the development, based


on the restrictions placed by Wal-
Mart when the property was
given to the city.
Gallagher replied that since
the agreement was between Wal-
Mart and the city, those are the
only two parties who would have
standing to object.
He said that the agreement
sought by Frontier would riot
obligate the city to sell the prop-
erty to his client, but would com-
mit the city not to negotiate with
any other potential purchaser.
Wiegers recommended that the
zoning board recommend to the
city commission that it declare
the property surplus and waive
competitive bids.
The board approved that rec-
ommendation by unanimous vote.


Carver, Summerlin Projects


Are Ready To Go Out for Bids


Two major recreation projects
- a new gymnasium: at Carver
Recreation Center and
Summerlin Park east of Bartow
High School are ready to go to
bid.
Terry Hunter, architect for
both projects, told city commis-
sioners that he is ready to send
.out bid packets for both projects.,.
The new Carver gym will be
regulation size, and can be subdi-
vided into small cross-court areas
for recreational 'play. It will be
built on the northwest corner of
the Carver Rec complex, about
where the old swimming pool was
located before it was demolished
in 2001.
U.Unlike the existing Carver
gym, it Will not be a multi-pur-
pose facility, Hunter said, and
will be only for basketball games.
After the new gym is built, the
present gym will be remodeled for
use as a meeting hall and a ban-
quet hall.
Existing Carver facilities will
remain in use during construction
of the new gym, he said.
The gym will have two locker
rooms, though the initial plan
does not call for finishing them.
The structure will be, a pre-
engineered metal building with
12 feet of scored block wall.


The projected cost of the gym is
in the neighborhood of $1.3 mil-
lion to $1.4 million, Hunter said.
'Funding will come from the city
budget and from the commitment
of 'three years of federal
Community Development Block
Grant funds.
In addition to the base bid on
the building, the city will ask for
prices on three alternates:
: A wooden gymnasium floor.
Finishing the interior of the
locker rooms.
Additional parking and exte-
rior lighting.
Bidders will be given 30 days
to submit bids, and the city will
award the contract within anoth-
er 30 to 60 days, Hunter said.
Construction should take
about 10 months, meaning that
the building should be ready for
use by Summer of next year, he
said.
Hunter said there is a lot of
contractor interest in bidding for
the job, but cautioned that the
price of concrete and steel has
risen by 25 to 30 percent in the
past year.
Future phases call for renova-
tion of the existing gym, a new
swimming pool, and other recre-
ational facilities, and for removal
of the small meeting room/audito-


rium known as the East-West
Building.
The park tentatively named
Summerlin Park in honor of the
early Bartow benefactor who gave
land for schools, churches, and
the county seat will be built
just east of Bartow High School in
what is commonly called Wilsons'
Pasture.
The central feature will be a
three-quarter-mile asphalt track,
eight feet wide, circling the reten-
tion pond on the property. The
depth of water varies from a large
puddle to a small lake, depending
on rainfall.
There will be paths connecting
Summerlin Park with Nye Jordan
Park to the east and Mary
Holland Park to the south.
The walking/jogging/skating
track will be lighted with antique-
style streetlighting to make it
safe for use around the clock,
Hunter said.
The facility will be open to the
public as well as to the school,
and the student parking lot will
be available for public use after
school hours.
The school board will build an
outdoor basketball court and
other recreational facilities on the
land.
The Bartow Rotary Club will


pay for a gazebo overlooking the
pond as a commemoration of the
100th anniversary of Rotary
International.
Other facilities will include
restrooms and park benches.
Space will be reserved for a
"tot lot" playground.
A gateway arch will mark the
entrance, and Hunter hopes that
a local organization will under-
write the cost of the gateway.
The estimated total cost of the
park is $473,000, Public Works
Dir. Bill Pickard told the commis-
sion.
Of that amount, $122,500 will
come from a state recreation
grant and '$50,000 from the
Rotary Club. The city will pay
$242,500 toward the cost of the
park, and will provide $58,000 in
labor as an "in-kind match" for
the state grant, he said.

of vacant land on State Road 60
at the west city limits of Bartow
for homes and businesses were
outlined to the planning and zon-
ing board Monday night by John
Hutto.
Hutto, president and owner of
Nustar Enterprises, Inc., said the
development will have 2,700 feet
of frontage on SR 60, and will
stretch about a mile to the south,
ending due west of the Bartow
Park recreational complex on
County Road 555.
Some, but not all, of the prop-
erty is mined-over, reclaimed
phosphate land.
The commercial and light
industrial development would
front on SR 60, turning south for
a short distance on CR 555, Hutto


The property, 324.6 acres, has
100 acres of "deep water lakes,"
and would have additional ponds
for stormwater retention, he said.
Hutto, emphasizing that the
project is still "an initial, concep-
tual plan," said he proposes to put
apartments in the northwest cor-
ner of the tract, on SR 60.
The middle section of the
acreage would be single-family
homes and multi-family homes on
lots ranging from 50 to 70 feet
wide. The housing density would
be 2.5 units per acre, including
the acreage with retention ponds
but not the acreage with deep
water lakes, he said.
The southern end would be
preserved as recreation and open
space, and conservation lands.


entrances


from SR 60 and one from CR 555,
Hutto said.
The zoning board voted unani-
mously to recommend to the city
commission that the property be
annexed, with land use designa-
tions of low density residential,
commercial, recreation and open
space, and conservation.
While the city has annexed a
lot of property north of Bartow
and some to the east in recent
months, this is the first major
annexation on the west side of
Bartow in years.
If approved by the city commis-
sion, it will extend the city limits
to the west by more than half a
mile.

City May Purchase Airport Land

To Relocate Electric Department


BY RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer
City commissioners, who also
serve as members of the Bartow
Municipal Airport authority, had
to choose where their allegiance
lie regarding a recent land pur-
chase at the monthly airport
authority meeting on Monday.
The decision involves what to
do with a 10.9-acre parcel of land
northeast of the main runway
the airport purchased at an auc-
tion last month for $737,000.
The. purchase used up most of
the airport's reserve funds, and
airport authority members were
to discuss taking out a loan to re-
plenish the reserves.
The parcel was purchased
with intentions to lease the land,
along with the warehouse facil-
ity and paint spray booth located
on it. Airport Mgr. Cynthia Bar-
row said it could easily become a
good revenue producer for the
BMA.
The sheriffs office, which cur-
rently has a facility next to the
parcel, has expressed interest in
leasing the land.
It seemed like a done deal un-
til City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge


made a proposal to purchase the
land outright to relocate the ci-
ty's electric department.
"I don't want to put you in
this dilemma, but I do want to
put you in this dilemma, in the
interests of the city," said
DeLegge.
The move would be a signifi-
cant investment for the city,
with construction costs esti-
mated between $2 million and
$2.5 million, including the pur-
chase of the land, which was ap-
praised prior to the hurricanes
at $1.5 million.
"It's too remote to bring public
works or other city operations
out there," DeLegge said. "But
electric is a separate entity."
Airport authority members
were torn between the possibility
of a yearly income producer as a
leased parcel and the opportu-
nity to help the city while ifak-
ing a profit on the sale of the
land.
"I like the idea myself, but I
want to protect the airport," said
Commissioner Cal Adams.
"Selling to the city is a little
different than selling to someone
else," said Commissioner Pat

Huff.
Mrs. Barrow said that while
the sheriffs office has been a
good tenant over the years, until
she gets a signed lease, she has
nothing but a verbal statement
of interest. She hopes that a deal
can be struck that satisfies all
parties.
"We're all sisters and brothers
here," she said.
The board decided to table the
issue until the city's fiscal review
committee comes up with con-
crete numbers and assesses the
viability of the purchase. While
the board members were all in
favor of allowing the city to pur-
chase the land for a reasonable
price, alternative plans were dis-
cussed on how to help out the
sheriffs office as well.
The fiscal review committee
will meet on Monday, Feb. 21, at
3 p.m. at city hall. At that
night's city commission meeting,
commissioners will address the
issue.
Depending on the outcome of
the proposed sale, the airport
authority will decide whether or
not to take out a loan at its next
meeting on March 21.

A resolution honoring the late
S. Loyal Frisbie, III, for a news-
paper career that spanned 80
years from the age of 9 until a
few months before his death at
the age of 89 was adopted by
the Polk County commission.
Frisbie died on Dec. 5, 2004.
He was publisher, until the
first of several retirements in
1981, of The Polk County Demo-
crat and The Fort Meade Leader,
and president of Frisbie Publish-
ing Co., Inc., owner of those two
papers plus The Lake Wales
News and Polk County Times.
As noted in the resolution, he
began his newspaper career at
age 9 "when he carefully typed
each of the six copies of the
Neighborhood News in his fam-
ily's home in Tampa."
In his journalism career, he
won numerous awards for edito-
rials, columns, news stories, and
journalistic excellence in the an-
nual Better Weekly Newspapers
Contest conducted by the Florida
Press Assn.
A combat veteran of World
War II, he served in the Battle of

High School
Voter Drive Nets
New Voters
A high school registration
drive netted enough new voters
to increase Polk County's voter
rolls above the 300,000 mark.
During Government week, Janu-
ary 14-18, 412 high school stu-
dents registered to vote, bringing
the number of registered voters
in Polk County to 300,141.
Bartow High School won the
competition for most registra-
tions, with 110, while Homer Ad-
dair academy won for the high-
est percentage.
At Addair, 100 percent of stu-
dents eligible to register to vote
did so. Addair was also a winner
in the 2004 government week
competition.
Although most of Polk
County's voters are older, recent
trends show an increase in
young voters. About 30,000 of
Polk's voters are aged 18-25,
compared to more than 75,000
who are 65 years old or older.

If a purchase price is negoti-
ated, funds will come from the

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

What's a Mother To Do!


1


Pap.





Bartow Needs a Really Low


Density Category


The continuing controversy over the
density of development on E.F. Griffin
Road has brought to fore one major flaw in
the city's comprehensive plan.
The comp plan sets the overall pattern of
development, while zoning implements
the specifics of the comp plan. It's a con-
fusing system, established to comply with
Florida's growth management law.
The city has three levels of residential
development in its comp plan: Low
Density Residential (LDR), Medium
Density Residential (MDR), and High
Density Residential (HDR). Without get-
ting bogged down in details and excep-
tions, LDR means single-family homes,
MDR means duplexes, triplexes, and HDR
means apartment houses.
The big flaw is that by the comp plan's
definition, "Low Density Residential"
allows up to six homes per acre. That is
hardly low density.
In fact, according to Robert Wiegers, the
city's planning director, under the city's
present code, it is impossible to put more
than 3.3 homes per acre in a subdivision,
because of all the land that must be
reserved for streets and other infrastruc-
ture. Nonetheless, LDR indicates the city's
willingness to pack six houses per acre, if it
were possible to doso, and still meet the
zoning rules.
We suspect that most folks (who bother
to think about such things) would consid-
er one or at the most two homes per acre to
be true "low density" development. In
unincorporated areas of Polk County, low
density development is one dwelling per
five acres.
It is not realistic to expect many homes
within the city limits to be developed on
five-acre tracts. But there are a few too
few, in our opinion homes being built in
Bartow on one-acre tracts. This is high
quality, high cost housing for which there
is a need, albeit a fairly limited need. It is
important that housing of this quality be
available for high income families, house-


holds which too often are living in other
communities even while working in
Bartow.
Under Bartow's present comp plan,
there is no way to insure that truly low
density housing is developed on a piece of
property until zoning, which is the last
step in the development process.
And once a developed has achieved LDR
status, he has a strong argument that he
should be allowed to build up to six hous-
es per acre, if he can meet the zoning code.
Further, neighbors have every right to be
concerned that this is the density that may
be built next door.
It was suggested at Monday night's zon-
ing board meeting and we wholeheart-
edly concur that Bartow's comp plan
should have a designation for genuinely
low density residential development.
Call it Rural Estate, for lack of a better
term, perhaps RE-1 for one-acre lots, RE-2
for two homes per acre.
If the zoning board and city commission
wanted to insure that some parcels of land
- and sections on E.F. Griffin Road are a
prime example are developed at a den-
sity of no more than one or two houses per
acre, it could designate those parcels as
RE-1 or RE-2. That would put the develop-
er on notice, and give reassurance to
neighbors, that the land would be
reserved for really low density residential
development.

News item: Prince Charles, at the
age of 56, was required to get the per-
mission of his mother, Queen
Elizabeth II, before he could marry
his long-time paramour, Camilla
Parker Bowles, 57. Failure to get
parental approval would violate the
Royal Marriages Act of 1772, and
conceivably deny him of his
birthright to become King of
England. Some day.

Hi, Mom.
It's your son.
Charles, Mother, it's Charles.
Mom, for gosh sakes, it's
Prince Charles, Prince of Wales or
some place like that, heir to the
throne of the British Empire, or
what's left of it.
Aw, Mom, you know I hate it
when you call me Chucky.
Yes, Mother, I'm calling to ask
for something, as usual, so yes, I
know you're going to call me
Chucky. That's probably why I
turned out the way I did.
What's that, Mom?
I said I am the regal prince that
I am today because of your stellar
parental leadership.
No, Mother, I am NOT being
sarcastic.
How's everything in your end
of the castle, Mom? Have you
given any more thought to hav-
ing the throne converted to a


recliner?
No, Mother, I haven't figured
out how to keep the crown from
falling off your head when you
leaned back in it. How do you
keep it on when you're in bed?
Yes, Mother, that was a joke.
Yes, I know you have weighty
affairs of state awaiting your
attention and don't have time for
small talk.
Mom, I'm calling to ask for
your permission to ... uh ... to
marry Camilla.
To marry Camilla, Mom.,
Camilla, Mom, Camilla!
You know, the woman I've
been shacking up with since
shortly after I married that
teenager, Diana.
Oh, Mother, don't act sur-
prised. It's been in all the papers.
Papers, Mom, the
NEWSpapers. You know, those
wretched TABloids.
Yes, Mother, they are disgust-
ing.
Yes, Mother, Henry the Eighth
would have dealt harshly with
those so-called journalists. Uncle
Hank ... now there was a fellow
who could keep his head when
all about him were losing theirs..
Why thank you, Mom! That's
the first time I can remember you
ever laughing at one of my little
jokes!


No, Ma'am, I won't expect it to
happen again.
Anyway, back to Camilla.
No, Mother, she doesn't have
to get her husband's permission
to marry me. They finally got a
divorce.
Oh, I really don't know. I'm
sure it was at least a few weeks
ago; maybe months. When you're
head-over-heels in lust... uh ...
love, it's hard to keep track of lit-
tle details like that.
Well, yes, Mom, if you give me
permission to marry her, and if
you ever croak, I would become
King, and yes, that would make
her the Queen.
Over your dead body?
Mother! Don't even talk that way!
Look at the Queen Mum. You'll
probably live longer than either
Camilla or me.
So Queen is non-negotiable?
Okay, Mom. She could just be the
Second Princess of Wales..I mean,
you're Queen Elizabeth II, why
couldn't she be Princess of Wales
II?
The people? You mean the
commoners? I'm supposed to
start caring what they think after
all these years?
Oh, Parliament. Yes, Mother, I
know that bunch of stuffed shirt
old fogies would like nothing bet-
ter than to have an excuse to cut


10 million pounds or so off your
already meager castlehold
allowance.
Okay, Mom, how about some
other title.
Princess of Cornball?
Mother!
It's Princess of Cornwall.
Cornwall.
Cornwall.
Cornwall.
Okay, Mother, maybe we have
a bad connection. I'm sure you
said Cornwall.
Oh, thank you Mom! I know
she'll be delighted!
Camilla, Mother, the woman
you just gave me permission to
marry. Yes, she'll be delighted.
The boys send their love,
Mom.
The boys ... your grandsons
... William and Harry. No, Mom,
they're not Camilla's, they're
mine; mine and Diana's.
SDiana, Mom, you remember
Diana, don't you?
What's that, Mom, you say the
people remember Diana, too? Is
that a bad thing?

By LETA WRIGHT

On Feb. 15 we had a piece of


history to just crumble to the
ground as the old Langford
Building was attacked by a
wrecking crew.
The crew put the building out
of its misery after the hurri-
canes. The building was so badly
damaged it could not be saved.
In recent years it was owned
by the Don Elliott family which
housed their air-conditioning
business and several other enter-
prises.
That building was built back
in the days when the old town
moved from the original location
just west of the Peace River to
the location today.
The town moved when the
railroad was laid for the train
service. Passengers for the train
rode on a street car to the depot
to catch the train. Therefore,
gradually, the businesses moved.

W. Malvin Patterson, 66, of
Bartow, died of leukemia
Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2005, at
Lakeland Regional Medical Cen-
ter.
Born in Dothan, Ala., on Aug.
21, 1938, Mr. Patterson was a
longtime resident of Bartow.
He was a maintenance me-
chanic at IMC-Agrico, South
Pierce facility, for 15 years. He
was a member of Homeland Bap-
tist Church.
Mr. Patterson was preceded
in death by one daughter,
Wanda Patterson.
Survivors include his wife, Jo
Ann Patterson; three sons, Ste-
ven Patterson and his wife,
Patti, of Bartow, W. Keith Pat-
terson of Bartow, and J. Tracy
Patterson and his wife, Tammy,
of Fort Meade; one brother, Alva
Gene Patterson of Dothan; one
sister, Janet Abbitt of Oklahoma
City; six grandchildren and one
great-grandchild.
Visitation: Friday, Feb. 18,
from 2 to 3 p.m., at Whidden-

The funeral will follow at 3
p.m., at Wildwood Cemetery in
Bartow, with Rev. Sammy V.
Haag, Jr., officiating.


The Langford Building


1800s were wood and later the
brick buildings replaced them.
Those same brick buildings are
used today.
The corner building was the
Langford Drug Store, owned by
Mr. C.W. Langford, a pharma-
cist. He stocked everything that
a drug store should have in those
days and also had a soda foun-
tain.
The best ice cream sodas, sun-
daes, root beer floats and banana
splits were made at that foun-
tain. He had the regular ice
cream parlor chairs and tables,
so everyone visited as they
sipped their sodas.
During the 1940s, Delia
Strain took over the running of
the store, and I was lucky
enough to be hired as a soda jerk
during one summer. My brother,
Lorry, worked there several
years before.
Fort Meade pioneer families
certainly have fond memories of
the Langford Drug Store. After


Mr. Langford died, his wife,
Anne, managed the dining room
at the Reif Hotel. She had beau-
tiful appointments and delicious
food with plenty of business at
every meal.
Its rather a sad day when a
famous landmark on your home
town's main street is no longer
there.
The story goes that Mr. Lang-
ford was born in the bedroom of
his home and in later years said
he wanted to be buried in the
same spot. He placed a marker
under the bedroom and was bur-
ied there.
I went to the cemetery to get
the dates. The headstone said
Langford on both sides. The foot
stones 'said "Anne Johnson Sept.
22, 1888 July 11, 1987" and "
Charles Walter May 24, 1881 -
Feb. 4, 1944."
Something rather odd was the
foot.stones are on the west side
of the headstone.

Be Aware Of Rabies


In the wake of a rabid animal
being found in Lakeland, Polk
County Health Department is re-
minding residents of the impor-
tance of rabies prevention.
"Vaccination is the single
greatest tool to prevent the
spread of rabies among our ani-
mal population," Polk County
Health Department Director Dr.
Daniel Haight said. "With the re-
port of a child being attacked by
a rabid fox in Polk County, pub-
lic health officials would like to
remind you that if you are bitten
by an animal, wash the wound
immediately and seek medical
attention."
On Feb. 14, a fox that at-
tacked a 3-year-old Lakeland
girl, later tested positive for ra-
bies.
The girl, Savannah Baars,
was playing outside her resi-
dence on Cherry Tree Drive
when a fox ran from behind the
home and attack the girl, a Polk
County Sheriffs Office spokes-.
mani said.
The girl's father was nearby
and kicked the fox away from
the girl, eventually'killing .it
with a car battery, the report
said.
The girl was transported to
Lakeland Regional Medical Cen-
ter, where she was treated for
scratches and abrasions on 'her
arms and legs.
The vast majority of rabies
cases reported to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevent.
each year occur in wild animals,
like raccoons, skunks, bats and
foxes.
Domestic-animals account for
less than 10 percent of the re-
ported cases, with cats, cattle
and dogs most often reported


rabid. Dogs and cats older than
four months are required to be
vaccinated against rabies and
wear a current rabies license
tag.
Pet ferrets also should be vac-
cinated.
Rabies is a deadly viral dis-
ease that can be prevented, but
cannot be cured. The virus is
spread through saliva and can be'
passed to another animal or per-
son, usually through a bite.
There is no treatment for ra-
bies after symptoms of the dis-
ease appear. However, the rabies
vaccine regimen provides immu-
nity to rabies when given after
an exposure or for protection be-
fore an exposure occurs.
Although rabies among hu-
mans; is rare in the United
States, every year an estimated
18,000 people receive rabies pre-
expospre vaccinations and an ad-
ditional 40,000 receive vaccina-
tions after being exposed to the
virus.
Pre-exposure vaccinations are
recommended for people in high-
risk groups, such as veterinari-
ans, animal handlers and certain
lab workers. In addition, inter-
national travelers likely to come
into contact with animals in ar-
eas with dog rabies and where
they might not have immediate
access to appropriate medical
care should be- considered for
vaccinations.
If you are bitten by an animal,
seek care promptly after any ani-
mal bites you. Wash the wound:
thoroughly with soap and run-
ning water for five to 10 min-
utes. Go to your family doctor,
hospital or, county health depart-
ment for medical attention im-
mediately.


To prevent the spread of ra-
bies:
Keep vaccinations up to
date for cats, dogs and ferrets.
Do not allow pets to run
free. If a wild animal bites your
pet, seek veterinary assistance
for the animal immediately,
Call your local animal con-
trol agency to remove any stray
animals from your neighborhood.
Feed your pets indoors.
Don't use your hands to
break up a fight between ani-
mals.
Spay or neuter.your pets to
help reduce the number, of un-
wanted pets that may not be
properly cared for or regularly,
vaccinated.
Avoid direct contact with
unfamiliar animals.
Do not handle or feed wild
animals.
Never adopt wild animals or
bring them into your home. Do
not try to nurse sick wild ani-
mals to health. Call animal con-
trol for assistance.
Teach children never to
handle unfamiliar animals, wild
or domestic, even if they appear
friendly.
Prevent bats from entering
living quarters or occupied
spaces in homes, churches and
schools. If you find a bat in your
home, contact the health depart-
ment.
When traveling abroad,
avoid contact with wild animals
and be careful around dogs in de-
veloping countries.

Putnam Introduces Head Start
Accountability Act of 2005


The Head Start Accountabil-
ity Act of 2005, which would en-
sure greater accountability for
Head Start agencies so that they
remain competitive, responsive
and compliant with federal law,
was introduced by Congressman
Adam H. Putnami (FL-12).
"Currently, Head Start grant-
ees who have a history of misuse
and abuse, unethical use of
funds, or known noncompliance
with federal law are still eligible
for federal funding and are given
preference for redesignation of
grants by the Administration for
Children and Families (ACF),
which is who administers Head
Start program funds," Putnam
stated.
"My legislation ensures that
the proper financial manage-
ment of Head Start grantees is
being met by streamlining the
audit process and specifying
oversight board compilation, and
calls for the automatic recompe-
tition for agency designation
every five years, regardless of
performance," said Putnam.
"Agencies also must submit
an independent financial audit
carried out by a certified public
accountant no later than 60 days
after the end of the fiscal year."
Grants for the operation of
Head Start and Early Head
Start programs may be awarded
to either public or private, for
profit or nonprofit organizations,
or public school systems. Funds
will be awarded to new grantees
through a competitive process,
particularly in a geographic area
that requires more service to
meet the needs:of the popula-


tion.
"The Head Start Accountabil-
ity Act will also ensure that
there is no conflict of interest for
members of the oversight board
of the agencies and that they op-
erate independently of the local
agency," said Putnam.
Important elements of the leg-
islation include:
Allowing high performing
agencies to be given priority
when up for recompetition;
Specifies composition of an
oversight board in order to en-
sure that all interests are prop-
erly addressed;
Requires those board mem-
bers to function autonomously
from the agency staff, and be
knowledgeable of general con-
cepts of accounting, law and
business management;
If an agency is known to be
deficient in a program area (i.e.,
financial management), it is sub-
ject to review, on-site evalua-
tions and possible termination
of grant designation by Head
Start; and
Requires agencies to per-
form an audit, performed by a
Certified Public Accountant, no
later than 60 days following the
end of the fiscal year. The ac-
countant must be chosen by the
oversight board, through a com-
petitive process. No accountant
may'perform audits of an agency
for more than two consecutive
years.
The Education and the Work-
force Committee is expected to
reauthorize the Head Start pro-
gram later this year.


Fine Arts Gallery Offers PCSO Seeking Crossing Guards

Natural Art jxjftl1Diitiof


Auburndale artist Jarred Bo-
gan will be exhibiting his art-
work in the Fine Arts Gallery at
the Winter Haven campus of
Polk Community College
through Feb. 18.
For the past decade, Bogan's
work has developed from ab-
stract natural forms to objects
that change over time. His sculp-
tures include natural items that
cause reactions to his work.
After creating a sculpture con-
structed of a cement mixture and
beeswax, Brogan take the piece
into a natural setting, such as a
field 'or woods, where the object's


surface begins to change. Salt
crystals ,take form, animals and
insects crawl across the surface,
wind and rain contribute, leav-
ing their various imprints in the
beeswax.
Later, Brogan reclaims the
sculpture.
Brogan earned his master of
fine arts degree in sculpture
from Ohio University. He served
a residency at Bemis Center for
the Contemporary Arts.
The gallery is open weekdays
from noon to 2 p.m. Admission is
free.

Historic Bok Sanctuary

Sets Performance Feb. 27


Acoustic Eidolon will bring its
special brand of music to His-
toric Bok Sanctuary's Pinewood
Estate Feb. 27 at 4:30 p.m.
The musical duo of Joe Scott
and Hannah Alkire blends folk,
bluegrass, rock and classical tra-
ditions.
They performed in 2004 at the
Kennedy Center, Millennium
Stage, Washington, D.C., as well
as recently at Florida State Uni-
versity's "Seven Days of Opening
Nights." They have released
their fifth album, "Live to
Dance," and filmed a PAX TV
"Joy of Christmas" special at
Pinewood Estate.
Performers Scott and Alkire
offer a "new acoustic" sound
blending Celtic, folk and classi-
cal genres.
Their music has been de-
scribed as "pure musical poetry."
The revolutionary instrument
used is called the guitjo (pro-
nounced git-jo) and is custom
built by luthiers Rich Mermer of
Sebastian and Denny Stevens of


Oregon.
The double neck instrument
with 14 strings gives an "incredi-
ble" tonal range that is impossi-
ble with a traditional guitar.
The range, along with Scott's
harmonies and open tunings, al-
lows the duo to discover new
sounds.
Alkire's classical training on
cello was enhanced by studying
with G. Magyara of the Hungar-
ian String Quartet.
In 2004, she was invited to
perform at Westminster Abbey's
Easter program. She also has
performed with Symphony Or-
chestras and Festivals, including
the Boulder Bach Festival.
Seating is limited and reser-
vations are required. A reception
will follow the concert.
Tickets cost $19 for nonmem-
bers and include all-day sanctu-
ary admission. Tickets are $14
for sanctuary members.

contact Pirjo Restina at 676-

The Polk County Democrat' February 17, 2005


(Continued from Page 1A)
Assignment of LDR land use
to previously annexed acreage
owned by Henry Groves, Inc., on
the west side of E.F. Griffin Road,
one mile north of Lyle Parkway.
Sam Thomas, one of several
people who live on one-acre lots
in the area, said he and his
neighbors were visited by a real
estate agent who tried to buy
them out. He said Bartow has
larger residential lots near the
"urban core" of the city than in
outlying areas.
Frank Black said that if the
LDR land designation allows six
units per acre, developers will try
to build to that density. "You're
going to come into our area and
build tract homes," he said. "Why
not make this unit one-acre lots?
This is a good place to build high
end homes."
Robert Collins, another neigh-
bor, urged the zoning board "to
give a little less thought to num-
bers and a little more thought to
compatibility."
Geohagan told the board:
"Y'all have something special
here; be careful with density." He
suggested that the comp plan
should provide a category for
one-acre lots, or for a maximum
of two houses per acre, to which
both Guffey and Raulerson
agreed.
Assignment of LDR land use
to a 15-acre parcel adjoining the
previous one.
Frank Black told the board


(Continued from Page 1A)

churches have benefited from his
generosity when it comes to
catering events.
He often donates the food and
only charges for his labor costs.
He also opened his kitchen to
some Polk Life and Learning stu-
dents to help them learn the
basics of cooking.
The Sheriff's Youth Villa, the
Polk County School Board, and
the Bartow Chamber of
Commerce have also benefited
from his generosity. Mills was
generous once again, during.
Bartow's hurricane's last fall by
serving many of the volunteers
helping those in need.

ERNIE COOPER
Ernie Cooper has been a pillar
in the Bartow education commu-
nity for many years as well as
serving numerous civic organiza-
tions. After serving the Polk
,County School system for 35
years, Cooper retired last
September.
He had served as area super-
intendent for the Northwest and
South Central Area Schools,
principal for Bartow High School,
Gause Academy, and Bartow
Junior High School. While he
was at Bartow High School, he
helped start the successful IB
program.
He worked with the Chamber
to start the parent/community
support group at the high school,
B.E.S.T.T., and initiated the
Dress for Success program.
One of his major accomplish-
ments was starting the "Just Say
No" program for area fifth
graders and he has been chair-
man for this program for more
than 15 years.
Cooper's civic endeavors


there are already 4,000 home-
sites approved on E.F. Griffin
Road, with no schools and no
recreational facilities. "Where do
you stop?" he asked. Wiegers
replied that the number of home-
sites on E.F. Griffin Road "is clos-
er to 1,500 homes."
"Is somebody keeping count?"
Terry Frost asked. "Certainly the
people making the decisions need
to have that information."
Wiegers said the school board
plans to build a new elementary
school on E.F. Griffin Road to
serve that area and ease pres-
sure on Stephens Elementary
School and Highland City
Elementary School.
Annexation of 16.8 acres of
land on the west side of E.F.
Griffin Road, three-quarters of a.
mile north of Lyle Parkway, and
designating it for LDR land use.
The property is owned by John
Thomas.
Sam Thomas asked why devel-
opers were seeking annexation in
the area. Mike Joachim replied
that the motivation is access to
city utilities and city police and
fire protection.
Annexation of 15 acres
owned by Michael and Judy
Bedenbaugh on the west side of
E.F. Griffin Road, a mile-and-a-
quarter north of Lyle Parkway,
and designation of the property
as LDR.
Sam Thomas produced a copy
of the deed from Emmett Griffin

He is currently serving at the
Education Co-Chair' even in
retirement. He is a past presi-
dent of the Bartow Rotary Club
and a Paul Harris Fellow. He has
served on the board of directors
for Bartow Memorial Hospital
and the American Cancer Society.
His church service for the ARP
church includes serving as a dea-
con, Sunday school, and choir
member. Cooper has been mar-
ried to his wife, Sheryl, for more
than 27 years and they have five
children and four grandchildren.
He's mostly known for his per-
sonal motto, "Together we make
great things happen."

JOE DELEGGE
As City Manager Joe DeLegge
was the "go-to" man during
Bartow's hurricanes last fall.
He played a crucial role in
helping Bartow recover from
three hurricanes last fall.
DeLegge is a graduate of the
University of South Florida and
served four years in the Navy.
After a stint in the private sec-
tor with Sears and Roebuck, he
began his government work with
the City of Bartow in 1981 as
assistant auditor and clerk.
He left Bartow in 1989 to
become city manager in Madison.
He returned to Bartow as city
manager in August 1993. He is a
'member of the International City
Manager's Association and the
Florida City and County
Managers Association.
His local commitment to
Bartow includes past president of
the Bartow Lions Club,
Leadership Steering Committee,
Committee of 100, Youth Villa
Golf Classic Planning Committee'


development to one home per five
acres. He said Griffin had told
him of the limitation placed on
the sale.
Wiegers said that covenant is
binding only on the buyer and
the seller, and predicted that the
property would be developed at
three units per acre.
Mrs. Frost told the board:
"We're depending on you to be
the guardians at the gate. We're
selling away what makes people
want to come to Bartow. Let's not
sell away what makes us mar-
ketable."
The vote to recommend annex-
ing that parcel was 3-to-0, with
Guffey declaring a conflict of

Being Agreeable May Help Land A Job


Housing Approved


By CATHY KEEN
University of Florida

Sucking up or apple polishing
are more likely to work in a job
interview than boasting of one's
accomplishments, a new Univer-
sity of Florida study finds.
"Kissing up, being nice and
agreeing more than disagreeing
do seem to be effective tactics for
people to use when looking for a
job," Timothy Judge, a UF man-
agement professor who did the
research, said. "This approach
succeeds because it leads recruit-
ers and interviewers to believe
the applicant will fit into the or-
ganization."
The findings show there is a
large social component to the
workplace, despite business
schools spending a great deal of
time and effort training people to
master technical skills, said
Judge, whose study appears in
the August "Journal of Applied
Psychology."
People like being compli-
mented and having others agree
with them, and practicing such
social niceties can't help but
make a favorable impression in
the workaday world, he said.
"One might view these ingra-
tiatory behaviors negatively as
apple polishing or bootlicking,
but by the same token one could
consider them social skills," he
said. "In fact, one social psy-
chologist once said that one of
the key findings in the history of
psychological research is the
'similar-to-me bias,' which
means we like people who are
like us."
That similarity-attraction the-
ory suggests people are attracted
to those with whom they have
something in common, so when
an applicant agrees with a re-
cruiter's opinions, the recruiter
may believe they share many be-
liefs and attitudes, he said.
"Judge's paper is a well-con-
ducted study that gives insight
into the fact that it is more use-
ful to compliment others than it
is to compliment ourselves," said
Daniel Cable, professor of man-
agement and organizational be-
havior at the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill, who has
studied the job choice process for
nearly a decade. "On the other
hand, agreeing 'outwardly with


an interviewer when you really
disagree could wind you up with
a job where you don't really fit
the culture of the organization."
For their research, Judge and
Chad Higgins, a University of
Washington management profes-
sor, studied 116 undergraduate
students majoring in business or
liberal arts at the University of
Iowa who were interviewed for
jobs they sought through the col-
lege placement service.
The applicants completed sur-
veys asking them to rate on a
seven-point scale their use of
various ingratiatory and self-
promotion tactics.
Examples of ingratiatory be-
haviors included agreeing out-
wardly with the recruiter's opin-
ion while disagreeing inwardly,
and complimenting the inter-
viewer's appearance.
Self-promotion tactics in-
, luded playing up one's accom-
plishments or experience levels
and overstating one's qualifica-
tions.
In turn, the recruiters were
asked to assess the applicants,
including stating how strongly
they agreed or disagreed with
statements such as, "This appli-
cant is a good match or fit with
my organization and its current
employees" and "This applicant's
values reflect the values of my
organization."
Ultimately, recruiters were
asked to rate how likely they
would be to recommend hiring
the applicant, using a seven-
point scale ranging from "
strongly agree" to "strongly dis-
agree."
While the results showed a
strong relationship between the
use of ingratiating behaviors and
favorable attitudes on the part of
recruiters, self-promotion tech-
niques had no effect, Judge said.
"We know that on the job,
self-promotion has never seemed
to work too well, probably be-
cause the supervisor has much
more of ah opportunity to find
out the reality," he said.
On the other hand, studies
have found the use of ingratiat-
ing behaviors to be effective in
influencing performance ratings,
he said.
Complimenting supervisors or
co-workers and agreeing with


A law enforcement captain
with the Office of Agricultural
Law Enforcement (OALE) was
installed as President of the
Florida Police Accreditation Coa-
lition at the organization's an-
nual conference last week.
Captain Cheryl DeGroff-
Berry, OALE's accreditation
manager, has assumed the Coa-
lition's top position.
"Captain DeGroff-Berry's ele-
vation to this important position
is testimony to the skill and pro-
fessionalism she brings to our
department," Charles H. Bron-
son, Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner, said. '

their opinions may not be as dis-
honest as it would appear; some
people are simply more agree-
able by nature, Judge said.
In order to ensure they get
the best-qualified applicants,
though, recruiters should strive
to get more detailed information
from prospective job candidates
rather than simply accepting
comments that are designed to
please, he said.
"A certain level of agreement
and trying to get along is fine,
but I think the interviewer needs
to be careful that there's sub-
stance behind the style," Judge
said. "There are questions that
can test that. For example, if you
asked an applicant, 'Have you
broken a rule?' that may be a
way to test whether a person is
agreeing with everything that is
said or is just an agreeable per-
son."
The results, showing that in-
gratiation tactics have such a
strong effect during the inter-
view process, raise the question
about whether businesses are
really looking for people with
their own ideas.
"Probably if you were to ask
most managers, 'Do you want
"yes" people?' they would say,
'No, 1 want people who disagree
and represent themselves,"' he
said. "But if you look at what
they actually mean, you get a
different picture."


DeGroff-Berry served for 20
years in the Orlando Police De-
partment. While there, she
served in a variety of positions,,
including overseeing the depart-
ment's re-accreditation and ulti-
mately supervising the depart-
ment's Internal Affairs, Plan-
ning and Evaluation, and Fiscal
units.
In her current position with
OALE, DeGroff-Berry, a Univer-
sity of Miami graduate, is in the
process of guiding the Office into
becoming an accredited state law
enforcement agency.

Bigfoot Myth Persists Because It Depicts

Human Motives UF Researchers Said


By CATHY KEEN
University of Florida

There's plenty to debunk
about the Bigfoot myth, but peo-
ple may not listen because they
have a love-hate relationship
with the gigantic hairy monster,
says a University of Florida re-
searcher.
"People express a reverence
for the grandeur of the animal
and derive meaning from Bigfoot
because it represents where we
came from," said UF anthropolo-
gist David Daegling. "I think
Bigfoot depicts the wild and un-
cultured side of who we are, a
side we are both attracted to and
repulsed by."
Bigfoot has captured the
popular imagination with tanta-
lizing clues and alleged sightings
since 1958, when mysterious gi-
ant footprints were found in the
northern California wilderness
and documented on the front
page of a local newspaper in
1958.
In his new book "Bigfoot Ex-
posed: An Anthropologist Exam-
ines America's Enduring Leg-
end," published this month by
Altamira Press.
Daegling examines some of
the most celebrated Bigfoot
claims regarding the number,
size and frequency of footprints
found deep in the forest, hair
samples that defy description
.and famous film footage that
some people hold up as the
strongest proof of the creature's
existence.
"The problem historically has
been that investigators have
been too quick to believe in Big-
foot rather.than be critical about
the. evidence from the start,"
Daegling said.
Michael Dennett, scientific
and technical consultant to
Skeptical Inquirer, a magazine
that tells what the scientific
community knows about para-
normal claims,, said in his 20
years researching Bigfoot,
Daegling's work is the "best book
've seen. way above anything
previously available.
"In truth, many of the issues
are far more complex than might


'Florida Forever'

List Increased B:
Revisions t6'the Florida For- s
ever land acquisition lists were h
approved by Governor Jeb Bush
and the state Cabinet, adding
four new conservation projects to
the conservation program.
The new projects total more
than 12,000 acres in four coun-
ties.
Caber Coastal Connector
Tract Levy County (6,052
acres): Connecting the Suwan-
nee River.National Wildlife Ref-
uge and Cedar Key Scrub State
Reserve, the project will help
preserve rare scrub and coastal
species including the Florida
scrub-jay. ,
Little River Conservation
Area Gadsden County (2,000
acres): The project connects ex-
isting public lands along Little
River with Lake Talquin State
Forest to protect floodplain areas
that will enhance the entire eco-
system and safeguard rare wild-
life dependent on the. river's wa-
ter quality.
Ochlockonee River Conser-
vation Area Leon County
(3,105 acres): Proposed as a.con-
servation easement, the land is
important to the water quality of
the Ochlockdnee River, Lakes
Talquin and Iamonia and Apa-
lachee Bay.
Promise Raich Lake
County (1,418 acres): Proposed
as a conservation easement, the
parcel is located on the eastern
shore of Lake Yale. The project
protects' wetlands, swamps,
marshes, large live oaks and an
Indian burial mound.
In addition to'the new pro-
jects added, the Governor and
Cabinet approved recommenda-
tions to reorganize the Florida
Forever "A" and "B" lists. Bear
Creek and Lafayette Forest were
elevated to the "A" list, while 30
projects, were moved from the
"A" to the "B" list, which re-
quires a 50/50 funding'partner-
ship with the State. Seven pro-
jects were removed from the
Florida Forever lists because the
properties were sold or had un-
willing sellers.

Governor Bush and the Florida

seem, yet this book cuts through
the fog to reveal the real as well
as the unreal parts of the story,"
Dennett said.
Daegting became familiar
with the legend as a child grow-
ing up in northern California.
These days, because of his scien-
tific background, he has been
asked to speak publicly and re-
view books on the subject, and
he worked with a colleague who
specializes in locomotion studies
to analyze the 1967 Bigfoot film.
The footage was shot by Roger
Patterson, who reportedly was
searching for Bigfoot with a
friend and caught images of
what he claims was the creature
stomping through the wilder-
ness.
While the film contains no "
smoking gun," the possibility of a
hoax can't be ruled out, Daegling
said.
Bigfoot proponents claim the
creature must be real because its
ape-like walk differs from that of
a human, but people could easily
duplicate the gait by roughly
imitating Groucho Marx's walk,,
he said.
Daegling said what's seen on
the film has been studied in bio-
mechanics literature for years.
Some Bigfoot advocates insist
it would be impossible for the
character in the film to be a per-
son in a bulky costume because
it moves so fluidly, with musdes
appearing to move as the animal
moves.
Daegling said. But that life-
like movement could be achieved
by an old Hollywood trickle of
placing water
Sbags underneath the costume,
he said.
"The guys who took this movie
did pot go to the local costume
shop and rent a gorilla outfit." he
said. "It's definitely not a cheap
carnival suit"
Adding to the confusion is
that the film was shot with
16mm film under less-than-ideal
conditions, giving it a jerky,
fuzzy quality. "It's entirety possi-
ble that in 1967 a very convinc-
ing costume in conjunction with
a rather poor-quality film could
produce a series of images that

people would find very compel-
ling," he said.
Another Bigfoot clue, the
presence of giant. footprints,
doesn't argue for the creature's
existence either because some-
one could easily have put on a
pair of fake feet or made such
impressions with their hands or
some sort of tool, Daegling said.
In fact, when Bigfoot enthusi-
ast Ray Wallace died recently,
his family revealed in widely
published reports that he had
faked Bigfoot footprints by
strapping on a pair of large
wooden feet he had asked a
friend to carve and stomping
around in the wilderness near
sites where he worked paving
roads, he said.
If any of the footprints are
real, it raises the question of
why no bones have ever been
found, Daegling said.
"These so-called footprints be-
long to an uncataloged primate
for whom we have not a single
specimen," he said. "If there is
something that exists that
weighs a ton, is eight-feet tall
and roams around the forest,
how is it we've got museums full
of bones from bears, squirrels
and badgers, but we don't have a
single Bigfoot bone?"
There was a report of a
hunter saying he shot and killed
Bigfoot, but as luck would have
it he shot it at the edge of a can-
yon, it fell into the canyon and
the body was never found, he
said.
"When you look at the evi-
dence scientifically, it's far more
likely that what's behind Bigfoot
are people for whom the legend
is meaningful and people who
perpetuate the legend through
hoaxes," he said.
Followers live in such hotbeds
of reported Bigfoot activity as
Ohio, Michigan or Texas.
Perhaps the most important
development in the hairy giant's
recent history is the technologi-
cal advance of the Internet in-
fusing new life into the legend,
Daegling said.
"The Internet assures Bigfoot
is saved from cultural extinction
by allowing a diffuse group of
people all over the country to
share stories and information,"
he said.

Reverse Mortgages May Work

Against The Elderly And Cities


By CATHY KEEN
University of Florida

The.. explosive growth of re-
verse mortgages can backfire for
both elderly homeowners and
the nation's cities, said a Univer-
sity of Florida researcher.
Reverse mortgages which
allow elderly homeowners to bor-
row against the home's equity -
encourage the elderly to remain
in older housing that may be un-
safe because of physical deficien-
cies, said Stephen Golant, a UF
geography professor who pre-
sented a paper on the subject at
a Nov. 27 meeting of the Geron-
totogical Society of America in
Washington, D.C., based on on-
going research.
That makes deteriorating
structures less available to
younger homeowners, who are
more likely to make improve-
ments to them, which ultimately
helps rejuvenate neighborhoods
in the nation's older cities, he
said.
"We have to be careful that
we don't romanticize the notion
of older people aging in place in
their own homes and be blind to
the many downsides," said
Golant, an expert on elderly
housing who reached his conclu-
sions by analyzing data from the
U.S. Census Bureau's 1999
American Housing Survey de-
scribing the characteristics of
the accommodations of more
than 17,000 older homeowners.
Golant, who has studied eld-
erly housing needs for more than
30 years, was recently a consult-
ant to the Commission on Afford-
able Housing and Health Facil-
ity Needs for Seniors in the 21st
Century, a panel created by Con-
gress.
Although the elderly gener-
ally prefer to remain in their
own homes rather than move to
nursing homes or.other assisted
living facilities, many would be
better off in new. more user-
friendly affordable rental units
designed with older people in
mind that are close to social
services and other sources of
support that could help them
deal with their frailties, Golant
S*' *

said.
Reverse mortgages allow
homeowners 62 and older to bor-
row against the equity in their
home without having to sell it,
give up the deed or take on new
monthly mortgage payments,
Golant said.
They are touted by financial
experts as a good strategy for
low-income seniors to cope with
a variety of financial pressures,
which include rising out-of-
pocket costs for medical care and
prescription drugs, inadequate
Social Security checks, meager
returns from investments and
increasing payments for long-
term care insurance premiums,
he said.
Between April 2003 and April
2004, the number of reverse
.mortgages in the United States
increased by 112 percent, accord-
ing to published figures released
by the National Reverse Mort-
gage Lenders Association.
Holders of reverse mortgages
are disproportionately poor, and,
because they often are in their
70s and 80s, more likely to live
alone, Golant said.
"In many respects, these are
some of our most vulnerable
older residents," he said.
More than half of those mort-
gage holders occupy dwellings at
least 40 years old, which means
they're more likely to live in
houses that are run-down, un-
safe, unhealthy and uncomfort-
able.
Because they are frail or fear
dealing with home repair
wokrers, older people often don't
make improvements in their
homes that could help them
avoid accidents, such as install-
ing grab bars int he showers to
prevent falls, he said.
'"This idea may sound draco-
nian to people who say, 'aren't
you sort of pushing older home-
owners out of their treasured
hones that they've lived in for
30 years or more?'" he said. "But
we're really not doing older peo-
ple a favor by encouraging them
to age in place when it's not par-
ticularly advantageous for their
health, safety and quality of
life."

Reverse mortgages also are
not in the best economic and po-
litical interests of mayors of big
cities who should be wary about
encouraging them, he said.
A new generation of younger
homeowners is likely to want to
move closer to cities' downtown,
Golant said. They are much
more likely to make home re-
pairs and initiate major home
improvements, which not only
upgrade urban neighborhoods,
but reduce poverty and crime,
and build a stronger tax base, he
said.

Only a Few Bartow Football

Highlight DVDs Still Available


WITH A YOUTH-FILLED TEAM, the sen-
iors on the Bartow High School baseball team will
have to step up, on and off the field. First year
coach Eric Danapilis expects big things from his


three seniors leaders (from left) Cameron
Mitchell, Lezon Dixon and M.J. Wilson. (Staff

By GENO JOHNSON
BHS Sports Correspondent
The Bartow Yellow Jacket
varsity football team had an out-
standing year this past season
and fans can relive the memories
at home with their DVD player.
The Yellow Jackets ended
their fun, but challenging, regu-
lar season with a 9-1 record. The
2004 season came to a close with
a final record of 10-2, losing in
the first round of the state play-
offa to Rockledge High School.
This year's highlight film was
a little unusual, so to speak. For
the first time ever in Bartow
High School history the high-
lights from the 2004-2005 season
were put on DVD instead of the
old-fashion VHS video tapes.


This year the highlight film was
put together by Pete Barber, a
fellow Polk County coach, who
makes highlight films as a side
job.
Head Coach Shawn Killets
said the film on DVD would be of
better quality than last year's
VHS version. He also thought it
would make it easier to market.
Coach Killets said he is "real
excited" when Bartow gets an
opportunity to showcase its ath-
letes. Reactions from coaches,
parents, and players have all
been very positive.
The Yellow Jacket highlight
films are still available arid
there are less than 10 left for
$20 each.
To order a copy, call Coach
Shawn Killets at 561-248-6892.

2005 Yellow Jacket Baseball Team

Short On Experience, Not Confidence


BY RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer
While experience is in short
supply among the ranks of this
year's Yellow Jacket baseball
team, they are bursting at the
seams with confidence.
With first-year coach Eric
Danapilis at the helm, a new
sense of optimism has washed
over Bill Phebus Field.
When Danapilis first walked
on the field, he was shocked to
find a group of "young babies"
consisting of mostly underclass-
men. After the departure of 10
seniors last season, the Yellow
Jackets are a little light on expe-
rience, but that doesn't bother
Danapilis.
"Being young it's kind of a
blessing. I can mold them in the
way I want to teach them to be
good ball players," said
Danapilis.
It's not limited to baseball
though. Danapilis said his in-
struction begins outside the dia-
mond and carries over into the
sport.
"My thing is not to just win a
state championship or develop
them as better baseball players,
but to teach them about life and
make them better young men,"
said Danapilis.
He said that accountability
and discipline are two traits that
are crucial not just in the ball
field, but in life as well.
While he expects results from
the young squad this year,
Danapilis said he is also looking
long term. Already he has set up
coaching clinics for Dixie Youth
players and coaches, fund raisers
and partnerships with AAU
teams.
"If this was going to be a year
or two job, I wouldn't care about-
what they're doing when they're
10 years old," Danapilis said. "I
plan on building a program."
His first move in building that
program was to combine the JV
and varsity squads during prac-
tice time, to let the underclass-
men know what is expected of
them. The set up is similar to
how Coach Glen Rutenbar runs

his practices for the three time

Senior Leadership
The youngsters might have a
bright future to look forward to,
but the seniors on this year's
squad have a big responsibility
right now. The three seniors,
captain M.J. "Big M" Wilson, Le-
zon "Leezie" Dixon and Cameron
"Killer Cam" Mitchell, have a lot
of leadership duties to fulfill on
the youth-laden team.
The seniors said it didn't take
them too long to buy into Coach
Danapilis' philosophy, all except
for the part about school before
baseball, they joked.
"The first couple words out of
his mouth, I knew he was the
real deal," Wilson said.
It's been a rough road for the
team's seniors who have seen
three coaches in four seasons.
But this year is a new season,
with a new philosophy.
"Last year, it was a case of too
many chiefs and not enough In-
dians," said Wilson.
This year, the seniors said, is
all about unity.
"As captain, I'm gonna try
and show leadership and sports-
,manship throughout the season.
Try and keep a good attitude,
keep the focus on baseball. I plan
to play hard, and give 100 per-
cent all the time," Wilson said.
Dixon said he hopes to show
his leadership by being a "hum-
ble, sound player." He is wants
to avoid all mistakes and help
the team out with his speed on
the base path. Dixon runs the 60
in 6.7 seconds.
SMitchell has his eye on the
prize and hopes to be a clutch
player.
"I want that ring, I want it
bad," said Mitchell.
The three already have set
some pretty lofty expectations
for themselves.
Their idea of a successful sea-
son?
"Undefeated."

What's Next
The most glaring issue for


.this year's Yellow Jackets is
pitching. Bartow lost two work-
horses in Jason Peacock and
Kyle Lewis to graduation, and
now Danapilis is hoping his
youngsters can handle the pres-
sure of playing a full season at
the varsity level.
"We have nine, 10 guys that
can pitch," Danapilis said. "But
we don't have anybody that
proved themselves last year."
He does have what he call
"big impact pitchers" in Drew
Collier, a transfer student from
George Jenkins; Brandon Patter-
son, who played on the JV squad
as a sophomore last season; and
Jack Murphy, a multiple sport
athlete.
Offensively, Danapilis is look-
ing for big things from Murphy,
Wilson, sophomore Joey Man-
ning, Josh Ward and Stevie
Chase.
"We've got a lot of hitters. I've
been' a hitting coach my whole
life. I love hitting, but I'm a
smart enough coach to know
that pitching and defense win
games," Danapilis said.
Over the fall, Danapilis said
the team has had a great off sea-
son. The progress some of the
younger players have made, he
said, has made it that much eas-
ier for the older ones to buy into
his philosophy.
"This is the group I have,"
said Danapilis. "The talent is
gonna be good enough, now it's
my job to mold the talent into
something that's going to be
worthwhile."

\ Reflections On

Faith

By Roger Campbell


By ROGER CAMPBELL
In his book, "There's a Lot
More tco Health Than Not Being
Sick," Bruce Larsen tells about a
friend who he says is one of the
happiest people he knows.
Larsen describes him as a very
senior citizen, now almost blind
and living on a modest income,
but who is fun to be around
because he's excited about the
future.
In contrast, many who have
good health and plenty of money
live in fear of what may be ahead,
always expecting some tragedy to
befall them.
"Whenever I board a plane, I
expect it to crash," one man told
me. "Then, if it lands safely, I feel
good."
Some have chosen this fearful
frame of mind for their outlook on
life. They make Murphy's Law
("Whatever can go wrong, will"),
their guiding light and live as if
God operated the world on this
pessimistic principle.
Nothing could be further from
the truth.
In "Letters To An American
Lady," C.S. Lewis comforted a
troubled woman by telling her
not all the things she feared could
happen to her and the one (if any)
that did would probably turn out
very different from what she
expected, adding: "The great
thing, as you have obviously seen,
(both as regards to pain and
financial worries) is to live from
day to day and hour to hour not
adding the past or the future to
the present."
Our Lord agreed, telling His
disciples to stop worrying about
tomorrow (Matthew 6:34). To fret
when we don't have the facts is
then both disobedient and faith-
less.
Sometimes when preaching, I
have asked the members of the
congregation how many of them
have ever worried about things-
that didn't happen. Many hands
have always been raised immedi-
ately.
Then I have told those who
didn't respond that I would speak
to them the following week about
lying.
In his published sermon, "The


Sin of Borrowing Trouble," the
eloquent 19th Century minister,
T. DeWitt Talmadge, said, "The
majority of the troubles of life are
imaginary, and most of those
anticipated never come."
The Psalmist warned against
frivolous fretting in one of his
most loved songs, a Psalm to
which I have often turned to build
my faith and drive away unwant-
ed fears (Psalm 37). Faith cures
fretting because they are oppo-
sites and cannot co-exist.
Looking out my upstairs office
window, I've been able to see a
beautiful yellow rose bush bloom-
ing every spring and summer for
more than 30 years. This thriving
beauty has special significance to
us because it came from Pauline's
mother's rose garden.
A few days ago, we noticed this
tough Michigan winter has taken
a damaging toll on it, and yester-
day we decided we'd have to cut it
down. Heavy ice had pulled it to
the ground, making rescue seem
impossible until a few
moments ago.
"Look out the window," my
happy wife called.
One look told me the reason for
the sound of joy in her call.
Melting ice has loosed the rose
bush from its clutches and
allowed it-to rise nearly to its for-
mer height, promising beautiful
yellow roses with the coming of
spring.
No matter what fears plague
you today, don't despair. And
don't expect the worst.
Stop that faithless
fretting. God will give strength
for today, and tomorrow will like-
ly turn out better than you think.

THE IMPRINT OF THE

CREATOR

Many thinkers, both secular and religious, have remarked upon
the fact that the belief in God (or gods) and in some kind of afterlife,
seems to be present in virtually every culture known to us, both past
and present. Secular thinkers, like Freud, consider these religious
ideas to be a kind of universal illusion. But, religious thinkers have
always been more inclined to see this as a kind of imprint of the
Creator upon the creature; the brushstrokes of the divine artist, if
not his signature. Indeed, it would be a cruel cosmic joke theory if
the idea of eternity were implanted in us but signified nothing more
than an illusion. Fortunately, the cruel cosmic joke theory has a
serious logical flaw. That is, if there is a cosmic joke being played on
us, there must be someone playing the joke, and the existence of a
cosmic prankster effectively negates the idea that God (or eternity)
is illusory. We are made in God's image, and we see this both in the
idea of eternity within us, and also in our acts of loving kindness.

He has made everything beautiful in its time;
also He has put eternity into man's mind, yet so
that he cannot find out what God has done from
the beginning to the end. R.S.V. Ecclesiastes 3:11

I Musings From God's Penman I


SMost people don't realize min-
isters are obligated to prepare
and preach onegreat sermon in
their career.
In looking over my record of
sermons preached, I noticed
many "good" sermons, but an ob-
vious lack in the list of a single
"great" sermon.
Perusing my list brought back
some marvelous memories. I
Smiled as I remembered each
Sermon and where I preached it.
S Of course, I'm at that stage of
Life where the old memory juices
Don't flow as deep as they once
did.
Occasionally, I ran across the
Sodd sermon that didn't really
look familiar to me at all. I must
have preached them because
they were on my list, but I had
' no recollection of them at all.
Every minister has three
kinds of sermons in his reper-
t oire:
Sermons that hold wonder-
ful memories as he reflects back
on them.
The preacher's main occupa-
tion, of course, is preaching. And
nothing delights him more than
pursuing his occupation with all
his might.
When a sermon comes to-
gether, it is a magnificent thing.
I grant you this doesn't happen
often, but when it does, it's won-
derful.
The bad thing about a really
wonderful sermon is you can
only preach it one time.
To me, this is not fair. A
singer, for example, can sing the
same song over and over and
Over. If it's a really good song,
people in the audience will even
request it.
SMy idea of heaven is having
people request I repeat one of my
good sermons. To date, no one
has made such a request of me,
Which may mean none are worth
repeating.
Sermons he wishes he could
forget and hopes everyone else
has.
Looking over my list of ser-
mons, I was surprised by how
many fit this category.
Here's a sermon for example,
"How to Give in To Your Wife
Without Giving Up Your Man-
hood?"


I was 28 at the time and had
been married for about seven
years. At that time, I thought I
had a good grasp on this thing
called marriage. Also, I thought I
had some wisdom to share along
this line.
If memory serves me cor-
rectly, what I thought I knew, I
didn't.
I do remember the Gracious
Mistress of the Parsonage set-
ting me straight on that sermon.
My manhood was severely chal-
lenged and I have never re-
peated that sermon since.
Here's another sermon I wish
I could forget, "When Your Get
up and Go, Got up and Went,
Where Do You Go?"
I have no idea what I was try-
ing to get at with this sermon. I
sure hope I never run into any
former parishioner who remem-
bers this one.
Finally, sermons long for-
gotten even by the preacher him-
self.
I noted that in 35 years of
preaching, I had quite a few be-
longing in this category. As I
tried to remember some of these
long forgotten sermons, one
thought struck me.
Where do forgotten sermons
go? Is there some holding tank
somewhere filled with forgotten
sermons? Is there a sermonto-
ruim for these homiletically-
challenged productions?
Missing from my list of ser-
mons was anything resembling a
"great" sermon. Then it hit me.
One sermon got away. How
sermons get away from a person
varies with each minister.
With computers these days, it
is difficult to lose a great ser-
mon. But the sermon I'm think-
ing of was B.C. (before comput-
ers).
It's hard to believe there was
a time before computers. Every-
thing had to be written by hand
and stored in some filing system.
My filing system, before my
computer, left much to be de-
sired. My system did not so
much leave much to be desired
as to be nonexistent.
I remember this sermon now.
It was a special Sunday in our
church and the worship program
was filled with special guests, in-


cluding a group of singers that
were to perform at our service.
I worked for weeks on this
sermon and had it worked out
pretty good. Everything that be-
longed to a great sermon was in
this sermon.
I reworked it until it was as
close to perfect as I could possi-
bly make it.
The Sunday arrived, and I
anxiously anticipated delivering
my great sermon. Everything
seemed to go right that Sunday.
Even the weather cooperated in
delivering a splendid day.
Looking back, however, I
overlooked one thing. Concen-
trating so much time in prepar-
ing my sermon, I forgot others
were participating in the service.
My sermon, as is usually the
case, was the last thing on the
program. The service started on
time and everything progressed
very nicely.
Then the musical group got
up to sing. They were simply
marvelous and the harmony was
heavenly. In fact, they were so
good they received a standing
ovation.
As the custom is, they re-
sponded appropriately by sing-
ing another song. Again, they re-
ceived a standing ovation, which
in turn resulted in another song
... and another song .. and an-
other song.
By this time, I was nervous.
My time to preach my great ser-
mon started 20 minutes ago and
there was no indication the mu-
sical group even sensed the time.
When the last strain of music
faded and I stepped to the pul-
pit, it was time to give the bene-
diction. With as much gracious-
ness as I could command, I pro-
nounced the benediction and dis-
missed the people.
To this day, nobody knows
(except you) my great sermon got
away.
"And how shall they preach,
except they be sent? as it is writ-
ten, How beautiful are the feet of
them that preach the gospel of
peace, and bring glad tidings of
good things!" (Romans 10:15
KJV).

Walking through a cemetery,
a boy saw this inscription:
"Sleeping, not dead."-
"Wow," he said, "he ain't
foolin' nobody but himself"
But according to the Bible,
death to a believer is sleep.
Sleep is delightful, not dread-
ful; pleasurable, not painful.
So is death to a believer.
Sleep keeps out pains and
problems, sorrows and suffer-
ings.
So does death to a believer.
To sleep is to rise again. So at
death, the believer's soul goes to
be with the Lord.
But the body sleeps in the
grave to rise at the resurrection.
The inscription is true for the,
believer: "Sleeping, not dead."

Foolish?
Yes, but not as foolish as sac-

Our Lord said, "What is a

soul? Or what shall a man give

'Learn to Live Life' Sundays
At Bartow First Assembly


"Learning to Live the Life" is
the theme of Sunday night pro-
grams at Bartow First Assembly
of God.
Recognizing the Bible's appli-
cation to the daily needs of soci-
ety, First Assembly offers classes
and courses each Sunday from 6
to 7 p.m., to help individuals dis-
cover and apply these principles
to their lives, a church spokes-
man said.
The courses are designed to
help with the financial pressures
of today, as well as to enrich and


strengthen marriages and fam-
ily. Classes designed to teach
and develop an understanding of
the Bible as it applies to one's
spiritual life, faith, prayers, and
beliefs about life also are con-
ducted.
The classes are offered free of
charge, and are open to adults,
teens, and children of all ages.
Each Sunday night, as the
adults are meeting, children and
youth join in age-appropriate
classes.


won the world, you've made a
bad trade.
If your soul's lost, all's lost.
Wouldn't you rather live for
the Lord?

Last night, a fellow said to
me, "When I die, I want to be
buried in an air-conditioned cof-
fin."
"Why?" I asked.
"Where I'm going," he ex-
plained, "I'll need it."
But wouldn't you rather go to
heaven where there is gain, not
pain; joy, not sorrow; flowers, not
fire?
"Yes," you say, "but how?"
It's not by praying, paying, or
plugging. It's by receiving the
Lord Jesus.
Say to Him, "Dear Lord, I re-
ceive Thee."
As you take Him, He'll take
away your sins and transform
your life.
Then you'll be heaven-bound
because you've been heaven-
born.

There was an awful accident.
It was sad to hear the driver
ask the sheriff, "Who am I?
Where did I come from? I don't
know where I'm going."
Have you wondered where
you came from? You came from
God.

The church is located at 215
South Perry Avenue.


You're someone He loves. He
has a wonderful work for you.
But He can't guide you unless
you accept His government.
Have you wondered where
you're.going? Back to God.
But you'll face Him as Savior
or Judge. Then you'll spend eter-
,nity with the Lord, or in the lake
of fire.
Aren't you asking, "How do I
get to heaven?"
Through Christ.
He says, "I am the way."
Say you'll take Him, won't
you?

But for a button, the world
would never have thrilled to the
music of "The Messiah."
Oh, it was just an ornament,
but it saved the life of George
Handel when he was struck by a
sword.
"Luck," you say?
No, the Lord.
Nothing comes to a Christian
by chance, only by Christ. There
are no accidents in our lives.
Everything comes by appoint-
ment by God's appointment.
"We know," says the Bible,
"that all things work together for
the good to them that love God."
Not all things are good in
themselves, but God makes all
things work for our good.
Then trust Him, won't you?

Out of My Range by Peggy Kehoe


Girl Scout cookies are so per-
fect as they are, it's hard to imag-
ine ever wanting to tamper with
their deliciousness by using them
as a mere ingredient in recipes.
Thin Mints, Tag-a-longs,
Samoas what more could you
want in a small piece of dessert
heaven?
The bakers of Girl Scout cook-
ies, however, have come up a
number of ways to use these once-
a-year delights.
Cookies purchased from the
Girl Scouts Heart of Florida
Council in this area come from
Little Brownie Bakers. Recipes
and everything you want to know
about Girl Scout cookies can be
found on their website, www.lit-
tlebrowniebakers.com, and that of
ABC Bakers, at www.girlscout-
cookiesabc.com.
These websites also have activ-
ities for Girl Scouts and tips for
selling cookies. More recipes can
be found on a number of Girl
Scout websites by doing a search
for "Girl Scout cookie recipes."
First are some recipes from
ABC Bakers. Some of the cookies
are known by different names.
If you didn't get any of these
types of cookies, perhaps you can
find a substitute in the grocery
store.
By the way, Samoas are cele-
bratihg their 30th birthday this
year.
Just remember, nothing will
taste as good as the original Girl
Scout Thin Mint!

Homemade Thin Mint
Ice Cream
3 quarts whole milk
2 cans sweetened condensed
milk
1 cup sugar
1 pkg. white chocolate instant
pudding
3/4 tube of thin mint cookies

Ice

Mix all ingredients but salt
and ice. Put into the container
and close it tightly. Put this con-
tainer into a larger one and add a
mixture of ice and salt in layers.


Turn it, shake, rattle, or roll it
until ice cream is frozen. Quit and
let it sit for a few minutes to
freeze up completely. Then enjoy.
Recipe can be made in ice
cream maker, two Ziplocs (1 quart
and 1 gallon), or two coffee cans
(one 1-lb. can and one 3-lb. can.
Recipe makes one recipe for ice
cream maker, three recipes for
Ziplocs, or two recipes for the cof-
fee cans.
