City Commission Enters



oHousing Density Debate


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

Bartow city commissioners are considering
the housing density issue raised by the plan-
ning and zoning board last week, specifically
whether the city should insist that some of
the thousands of potential homesites being
annexed into the city limits be reserved for
low density development.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge and Planning
Dir. Robert Wiegers both defended the city
staff's support of maximum density housing
under the city's R-1 single-family residential
zoning classification.
R-1 zoning allows up to six residences per
'acre, though Wiegers has said that when land
is carved out for streets, drainage and other
infrastructure. the density is about 3.3 homes
-per acre.; : -'
".Commissioners took no formal action, but
some said thev want the zoning board, which
recommends both planning policy and specif-
*ic:approval of each development, to look at
' d:thedengity question.
." Both DeLegge and City Atty. George
Dunlap said the commission should not try to
Sgivethe .zoning board.specific direction on
individual parcels. The board acts in an advi-


sory capacity to the commission, which has
the final say on annexation, land use, zoning,
and approval of subdivision plats.
The commission could tell the board,
DeLegge said, that it wants to see the board
recommend a zoning category that would
allow only one house per acre.
"Let's do that," Commissioner Andy
Laurent responded.
Wiegers said that R-1 zoning allows build-
ing lots 70 feet wide, with a total size of 7,500
square feet, and a minimum house size of
1,200 square feet of living area. Single family
homes on parcels zoned R-2 (duplexes) and R-
3 (apartments) can be even smaller, and can
be built on smaller lots, he said.
The city's most restrictive zoning category,
R-1-5A, allows 2.7 homes per acre, Wiegers
told the commission.
Even that standard is "fairly dense devel-
opment" Laurent said.
A major issue is the city's profit on sales of
electricity, water and sewer service.
Profitability goes up as housing density rises,
allowing more homes to connect to each mile
of electric, water and sewer lines.
"We want to pay attention to city govern-
ment's concerns. We're not going to make
money off of all R-1-5A lots," Mayor Leo


Longworth said.
"It may not be cost effective" to serve
homes on one-acre lots, he added.
"Money is not the primary goal, but we
ain't doing it for free."
But Longworth said he is concerned about
the ability of E.F. Griffin Road to support all
the traffic that would be generated by houses
planned on that road.
Adequate roads typically aren't built until
after subdivisions are developed, he said.
"I think there's room for one or two houses
per acre," Longworth said. He suggested that
the zoning board be encouraged to provide for
a mixture of densities in E.F. Griffin Road
subdivisions.
'We're trying to address the residents' con-
cerns, aren't we?" he asked.
"There's got to be something for every-
body."
If the city insists on one-acre building lots
in some areas, fewer builders will be inter-
ested in building homes, Longworth predict-
ed.
Most existing houses on E.F. Griffin Road,
built before the city began annexing the prop-
erty, are on lots ranging in size from one to

On Monday, April 4 one day
after Bartow's 34th Annual
Bloomin' Arts Festival draws to a
close work will begin on a mas-
sive redesign of Main Street.
Five blocks of Main Street in
the downtown area, from
Broadway east to Jackson
Avenue, will be narrowed, and the
sidewalks made wider, to make
the business district more con-
ducive to pedestrians and less
conducive to through traffic.
And the entire length of Main
Street, from the west end of Van
Fleet Drive to the east end of the
State Road 60 bypass, will be
Resurfaced.
The state is turning over Main
Street to the city as a city street,
and is redesignating Van Fleet
Drive as State Road 60, no longer
the SR 60 bypass.
"There's an initial shock," said
Sam Allen, project manager and
public relations representative
for David Nelson Construction
Co., general contractor for the job.
But Pat Steed of Post, Buckley,
Schuh and Jernigan, engineers
for the project, said Nelson

Egg Hunts

Saturday

In Bartow

Hey, kids! Three "egg-cit-
ing" events are planned in
Bartow this Saturday, March
26.
The Kiwanis annual Easter
egg hunt will again be held at
IMC Park beginning at 10
a.m. This event is open to chil-
dren ages one through 10, and
will feature refreshments, and
prize baskets and.eggs.
Or, hop on over to the Polk
Street Community Center for
the Westside Men's Club
annual egg hunt at 11 a.m. All
kids are welcome to partici-
pate.
Main Street Baptist
Church, at 1140 East Main,
also has planned a communi-
ty-wide egg hunt, to be held
from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This
event will include games,
prizes, hotdogs, and bever-
ages.


mize the impact on both vehicles
and pedestrians.
In some of its previous pro-
jects, Allen said, merchants have
adopted a promotional theme of
"Open for Business." Some work
will be done at night to minimize
the impact on the merchant com-
munity, he said.
The project is scheduled for
completion in early November, in
time for the Winter Crafts
Festival. The timing was picked
to see the job completed between
Bloomin'Arts and the crafts festi-
val, the two biggest downtown
Bartow activities of the year.
The engineering firm will con-
duct a pre-construction workshop
on Tuesday, March 29, at the
Crawford Agriculture Building on
East Main Street. A display will
be opened to the public at 5:30
p.m., and a program will begin at
6.


When the redesign is complet-
ed, Main Street will have two 12-
foot travel lanes with parallel
parking on both sides. Sidewalks
will be rebuilt with decorative
brick surfaces, trees, directional
signage, old fashioned-style
streetlights, and black "street fur-
niture."
The project, with a budget of
$4,619,951, will be paid for by the
Florida Dept. of Transportation
($2,023,000), and Bartow's
Community Redevelopment
Agency ($2,696,951).
The Nelson Construction
paving contract is $3,544,100,
with the balance of the money for
engineering, gateways, signage, a
five-percent contingency fund,
and an early completion bonus.
For more information, call the
PBS&J engineering firm at 533-
7000 or the city public works
department at 534-0100.


Former Chief's Grandson

Joins Police Department


By JENNIFER STARLING
Staff Writer

Matthew D. Cromartie has
joined the Bartow police force, fol-
lowing in the footsteps of his late
grandfather, Lewis H. Cromartie,
Jr., a former Bartow police chief.
Matthew, a native of Bartow
and a 2003 graduate of Bartow
High School, completed his stud-
ies in law enforcement at Polk


Matthew D. Cromartie


Community College in January,
and joined the department in
February.
He is the son of Nancy
Cromartie and David Cromartie
of Lakeland. His grandmother,
Mary Cromartie, resides in
Bartow.
Matthew, who has always
dreamed of being a law enforce-
ment officer, said he chose to
work at the Bartow Police
Department because of his grand-
father's history there, and
because he was raised in Bartow
and feels "more at home here."
Presently, he is working as a
patrol officer for the department.
"I'm just making some ground
first seeing what my cup of tea
is in law enforcement," he said.
"It's going real well. It's really
cool to be able to come to work
and enjoy what you do."
Matthew's grandfather, Lewis,
was Bartow's police chief from
1967-69, and he supervised the
construction of the existing police
department building. He spent
most of his life in law enforce-
ment, also working as a deputy
for the Polk County Sheriff's
Office, a Florida Highway patrol-
man, and a Winter Haven police
officer.
He retired in 1989, and passed
away in September of 1995.


Putnam: Social Security Program Must Be Modified


' If nothing is done to restruc-
ture Social Security, payments to
pensioners will exceed annual
revenue of the.program in 2018,
and in 2042, the system will
either become insolvent or will
have to cut benefits by 28 percent,
Congressman Adam Putnam told
a "town hall listening session" at
the Bartow .Civic Center on
Wednesday.
"Doing nothing is not an


option," he said.
While rhetoric varies about
how critical a problem exists,
"those dates are generally agreed
upon," he said.
"These are not Democratic
dates or Republican dates."
In 2008, the post-World War II
baby boomers will begin collecting
Social Security pensions, he said.
When Social Security was cre-
ated in 1935, the average life


CONGRESSMAN ADAM PUTNAM uses a PowerPoint presen-
tation to outline the need for revamping Social Security. (Staff
photo by S. L. Frisbie, IV)


expectancy was 63 years, two
years short of the date at which
Social Security is payable. The
Social Security tax was 2 percent.
Today, the life expectancy is 77
years, and the age continues to
rise with advances in science and
medicine, he said.
In 1945, there were 42 workers
in the work force for every Social
Security pensioner. That ratio
dropped to 16 workers per retiree
in 1950, and currently is 3.3
workers per retiree. The ration is
projected to drop to 2-to-1 when
today's younger workers retire.
At present, employer and
employee each contribute 6.2 per-
cent of the employee's salary to
Social Security.
While there are a number of
proposals advanced to implement
President Bush's proposal to cre-
ate private accounts within the
Social Security system, they boil
down to two approaches, Putnam
said:
A "carve out" option, which
would allow employees to direct a
portion, perhaps 4 percent of the
12.4 percent, into a government-
managed stocks and bonds fund.
An "add on" option, which
would allow a worker to make a
tax-sheltered contribution into a
government-managed fund, again
of perhaps 4 percent, in addition
to the 12.4 percent tax.
Under either option, the work-
er would create a "nest egg" which
would go to his heirs after his
death, an option that the present


Social Security system does not
have.
The average annual return on
Social Security is 1.8 percent,
while the average 20-year rate of
return in the stock market is 5 to
6 percent, Putnam said.
"Whatever we do, we have to
assure people who are at or near
retirement that they will not be
affected," he said. "Anyone born
before 1950 is completely.unaf-
fected by anything we do."
In 1983, the retirement age for
a full pension was raised from 65
to 67, phased in over a 22-year
period. Congress could continue
to raise the age as life expectancy
increases, or could change the for-
mula by which annual increases
are paid to retirees, he said.
Increasing the 12.4 percent
Social Security tax "could be a
job-killer," he said.
"Social Security is a very pre-
dictable program," unlike
Medicare and Medicaid, which
are unpredictable because the
cost of medical care rises at sever-
al times the rate of inflation, he
said.
Putnam said he hopes that
whatever plan is implemented
will go into effect several months
before the 2006 elections, so that
Social Security pensioners will
see that there is no impact on
their pensions.
DTrning to the national hud'get.
Putnam said the budget is now
$2.1 trillion, of which 54.3 percent
is for mandatory spending pro-


grams, primarily Social Security,
Medicare and Medicaid. This
year's budget has 38.4 percent for
discretionary spending, of which
about half goes to national
defense. The remaining 7.3 per-
cent goes to interest on the
national debt.
By 2015, the mandatory spend-
ing slice of the budget is projected
to rise to 62.1 percent.
One year ago, this year's pro-
jected deficit was projected at
$521 billion, but the House bud-
get has pared that deficit to $406
billion, he said.
In 2005, the increase in discre-
tionary spending was held to 1
percent, and the House version of
next year's budget projects a
decrease of eight-tenths of 1 per-
cent, Putnam said.
"We are on a path to cut the
deficit in half in five years," he
said.
Other comments by Putnam in
his presentation:
The new House transporta-
tion bill will increase Florida's
share of federal highway rev-
enues from 84 cents to 92 cents of
each dollar of federal gas tax that
is paid from Florida. This will add
$2 billion to Florida's federal
highway funds, part of which will
go to widening U.S. Highway 27
north of Lake Wales, and part to
widening Interstate 4. "They will
be widen~ just in time to become
inadequate again," he quipped.
The energy bill passed by the
House increases tax incentives for


"renewable energy sources" such
as solar power, and for atomic
energy. There hasn't been a new
nuclear-fueled plant built since
the Three-Mile Island disaster,
and after the terrorist attacks of
Sept. 11, 2001, concern has been
raised that nuclear plants might
become terrorist targets. "I view
that as an engineering problem,"
he said.
Congress is making steady
progress at present, but that will
change, he predicted. "When
there is a vacancy on the Supreme
Court, everything will grind to a
halt for about eight weeks while
some poor soul is raked over the
coals."
He hailed the spread of "free
and fair elections" in a number of
places, including "Iraq, Afghan-
istan, Palestine, Florida and
Ohio."
The countries "to keep an eye
on" are North Korea and Iran.
Florida's economy is stronger
than the nation's overall economy,
and Florida's unemployment rate
is one percentage point lower
than the nation's.
In a 45-minute question-and-
answer session, he fielded ques-
tions on a variety of subjects:
The difference between pri-
vate accounts in Social Security
and the existing Individual
Retirement Accounts program is
that the private account system
would be administered by Social
Security, and there would be no
early withdrawal options, as


there are with IRAs.
There are four major bills in
Congress on private accounts, all
of which are versions of either the
"carve out" or "add on" approach-
es. "This has to be a bipartisan
bill," he said, adding that he
hopes to see action by late
Summer or early Fall.
Most of the nation's foreign
aid money goes to the Middle East
- to Israel, Egypt, Afghanistan,
and rebuilding infrastructure in
Iraq and is focused on incen-
tives to countries that "are build-
ing stable democracies."
He doesn't foresee any drop
in oil prices until at least the end
of Summer.
A lot of U.S. debt is held by
foreign countries, and a conspira-
cy by holders of that debt could
trigger a plunge in the value of
the dollar against foreign curren-
cies.
"Midwestern senators put a
major ethanol component in the
energy bill," but fossil fuels are
required to produce fertilizer for
corn crops.
Congress "is highly unlikely"
to approve President Bush's pro-
posals for a major reduction in
Community Development Block
Grant funds, but the administra-
tion of CDBG grants might be
moved from the Dept. of Housing
and Urban Development to the
Dept. of Commerce.

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

How To Save on Work Uniforms


As a general rule, I'm sort of a
live and let live kind of guy.
If somebody else wants to
show his backside, so to speak,
I'm not one to rush over with a
towel. More to the point, I'm not
likely to rush over at all.
So if you can get $130 an hour
being a handyman dressed only
in a tool belt, I guess I have to
take my hat off to you, which is
more, under the circumstances,
than you could do for me.
Tuesday's Tampa Tribune had
a story on the front page of the
feature section about NakeDan
the Handyman. There's a reason
for his first name, which was sim-
ply "Dan" when his parents gave
it to him.
It has to do with his work uni-
form..
Nake is a former advertising
salesman and contractor. Given
that I employ ad salespeople and
I'm still hoping to get a contractor


to repair storm damage to our
Fort Meade Leader building that
dates back to August 13, I won't
comment on his past careers.
Referred to by Mother Trib as
"a 44-year-old St. Petersburg
entrepreneur," Nake was told by
his doctor to either start taking
blood pressure medication or lose
weight.
I don't know that this figured
into his thought process, but
when they weigh you at the doc-
tor's office, they do so in full
street clothes, including shoes,
cell phone, and a pocket full of
change. So the simplest way to
lose five pounds or so is to dress
like you're going to be dressed
for your annual physical exam in
a few minutes anyway.
The problem with that idea is
that doctors tend to put their
scales out in the hallway, a fairly
public place for being weighed in
your BVDs.


But back to Nake.
He lost 35 pounds, down to
198, and decided to combine his
less chunky physique with his
contractor experience, his mar-
keting expertise, and his hobby of
nudism.
NakeDan the Handyman was
created.
Like I said at the outset, to
each his own, but when I'm
doing handyman jobs around the
house on the weekend (for a plate
of chef salad and a low-cal beer
- not for $130 an hour) I tend to
wear not only what community
standards require, but even a pair
of shoes. There's always a chance
that I might drop a hammer or a
screwdriver, and I don't want it
hitting my bare foot.
When using a saw, I generally
wear heavy work gloves, because
I value each of my 10 fingers, if
you see where I'm heading.
And hitting my thumb with a


hammer is about all the pain I
really want to endure in my
handyman endeavors.
Nake, who requires his cus-
tomers to sign a don't touch
agreement before he starts his
$2.17 a minute clock running,
says he's heard all the double
entendre lines.
Immediately below the feature
story about Nake is the
announcement that The Trib has
hired a new features editor, a
woman named Kim Folstad,
whose job it will be to assign sto-
ries like this.
"New Editor For Features
'Thrilled' To Join Tribune," the
headline declares.
Her smiling face beams at us
from the page, less than an inch-
and-a-half from a tastefully-
posed photo of Nake in his
handyman's uniform.
Thrilled indeed.
Whatever floats your boat.

In today's issue, we continue our tradi-
tion of publishing responses to a question-
naire submitted to all candidates running
for election i fthe, city commission on April
5.
It has long .been the practice of this
newspaper to offer this forum to candi-
dates in ta., making political endorse-
ments. We feel-that drawing out the candi-
dates' vie\\:s on'major issues is of more
value in' helping .readers make a decision
than would be our opinion.
In small 'communities, city government
is "friends .and neighbors" government,
and every voter who didn't already know
all four candidates has had ample oppor-
tunity to meet,them. That opportunity for
personal interaction and a study of their
position: as set forth in the questionnaires
- is more valuable in making a decision
than anythingwe might say.
One candidate who has run for office
several times complained good-naturedly
that our questions are getting more diffi-
cult. We took that as a compliment, and
said so.
Every candidate has something to offer,


OUR READERS SAY

Libraries Nee(

LAKELAND The Polk County commission is
studying instituting a Municipal Services Taxing
Unit (MSTU) to fund parks, libraries, and roads.
Initially the libraries were slated to receive 0.5 mills
of this MSTU which would total 2.5 mills.
The breakout was to be 1.0 mill for roads, 1.0 mill
for parks, and 0.5 mills for libraries. The 0.5 mills
would accommodate the necessary .funding for
libraries which was recommended by the county's
consultant in 2001. The 0.5 mills would also bring
the per capital level of the county closer to the cur-
rent average of the municipalities who own and
operate public libraries at $24 per capital.
The 0.5 mills for libraries is concurrent with the
Polk County League of Women Voters position for

and we commend each of them for run-
ning for office. It takes a special kind of
community spirit to run for elective office.
April 5 is election day, and it is our prac-
tice not to try to beg, cajole or shame vot-
ers into going to the polls. Rather, we point
out the obvious: election day is the day
when citizens have "the opportunity to
chart the course of municipal government,
the government that can do the most for -
or to them.
That is enough motivation for us to go to
the polls; we hope you feel the same.

public library service. Funding at this level would
enable the county library cooperative to engage in
long range planning for the first time, to begin to
address' the capital improvement needs, and to
explore outreach methods of providing services.
The League of Women Voters also agrees that an
MSTU would be an appropriate source of funding
for libraries in that it could be set to equalize taxa-
tion within the county.
The county is also looking at funding the library
cooperative at .25 mills. (The other .25 mills would
be added to the roads portion.)
Funding at this level would only replace the cur-
rent funds which the county now provides for pub-
lic library service. It would not accommodate the
necessary funding to bring the coun-
ty up to the per capital level of fund-
ing the municipalities undertake,
nor would it allow for any capital
improvements necessary to provide
services throughout the entire coun-
ty. Long range planning would,
once again, fall by the wayside.
We encourage the county com-
I mission to go forward with the 0.5
mills MSTU for the Polk County
Library Cooperative to insure ade-
quate, predictable, and equitable
oviders" funding for continued effective and
efficient library service for the citi-
zens of Polk County.

The Polk County Democrat


2005 City Commission Candidates Express Views


1. Why are you running for the
city commission?








2. What makes you the best
qualified candidate in your race?







3. What is the biggest problem
facing city government, and
what do you propose to do about
it?












4. What is your opinion of the
performance of City Mgr. Joseph
J. DeLegge and his staff?











5. What action, if any, do you
propose to take to try to assure
that the growth of county gov-
ernment offices occurs primarily
in Bartow?











6. What is your opinion of the
downtown/ Main Street redesign
proposals?















7. What should Bartow do to in-
sure orderly growth and main-
tain the character of the commu-
nity?












8. What municipal servicess, if
any, do you believe most need to
be improved, and what improve-
ments would you propose?




9. What changes, if any, would
you propose to make in city gov-
ernmentt if you are elected?





10. What do you believe to be the
city's greatest needs for capital
improvements, and how would
you propose to pay for them?


A. Calvin Adams
1. To complete projects begun. To try
to operate city economically and keep
taxes and fees down.







2. My previous work as commissioner.
I know knowledge and experience of
all facets of operation. My construc-
tion experience aids city in evalua-
tions.





3. Keeping our expenses low and get-
ting most value. Held watch over
budget. Keeping rein on new building
projects.












4. He is doing an excellent job that
has much difficulties. Has hired excel-
lent staff and supervisors who are
most knowledgeable and competent in
their jobs.









5. Work with all agencies to keep
them in Bartow- including FDOT.
Work with Chamber to aid in this.













6. Yes, we will work to keep zoning to
encourage lower density; however, we
must evaluate all new proposed pro-
jects. There is also a need for over 55
retirement housing.













7. Refer to #6. Regardless, there is a
need to grow because we cannot stop
growth as more people come to our
town for the same reasons we did.











8. For city government our system is
best, as some people run for frivolous
reasons. Our system saves needless
expenses for runoffs.




9. Prepare for enlargements of our po-
lice and fire departments. Perhaps
satellite departments as out city has
already grown.




10. Continue to finish and construct
plans in progress for unified facilities.
We are already saving and allocating
funds yearly. I want to see this com-


pleted during my watch. I am proud to
live and serve Bartow.


Gerald J. Cochran
1. Bring trust back to city govern-
ment. Insist on better performance of
all city employees. Put a cap on de-
partment head salaries. Reduce the
commission salaries to 50 a month.
Give the citizens of Bartow longer
than five minutes to speak and voice
their opinion at city meetings. Stop
charging for budget books and materi-
als the citizen ask for. Elect the mayor
of Bartow other than appointment
within the commission. Lower utility
bills.
2. I have attended most city commis-
sion meeting and workshops for the
last 30 years. I have run for city com-
mission 14 times over the years. I
have studied the budgets and voiced
my opinion on management and waste
for years. The commissioners and city
manager do not have the majority of
the peoples interest at heart. I do.

3. Money is the biggest problem facing
city government. Reduce wasteful
spending and stay within the budget.
Stop paying interest on large loans
the city borrows. Reduce city employ-
ees. Stop leasing vehicles and equip-
ment. Stop hiring consultants and en-
gineers to do the work for people that
we already have on payroll.





4. I gave city manager Joseph J.
DeLegge a minus 10 the last several
years out of 10. He has not improved
Sone bit over the years. He has very
poor communication with the citizens
of Bartow. Doesn't stay within budget.
I would look for a new city manager
and replace his staff that has been
hired to do the job he is paid to do. He
is not worth $100,000 salary a year.
Golf course still in red after 10 years
of his management as city manager.


5. I see no more growth of county gov-
ernment in Bartow. Bartow has run
out of cheap land to sell or swap to
county government. When you take
the county budget money from this
area by annexation they will move
elsewhere.









6. I support low density on E.F. Grif-
fin Road. (one home per acre). Low
density will bring bigger and better
homes to the area. The larger and bet-
ter home insure greater tax revenue
for the area. It will be less congested
with traffic in that area also.











7., Stop building too many units per
acre. Demand larger lot size. People
will then have room to park their cars
in their yards instead of the street.
Let people build their house of their
choice instead of telling them it
doesn't comply to that neighborhood.









8. I do not support elimination of run-
off elections in city commission races.
If there are three people running it
should be a run-off. It gives the candi-
date who gets the less amount of votes
and chance to voice their opinion and
vote in a run-off.

9. Hire a new city manager. Make de-
velopment pay its fair share for utili-
ties and sewer hook-ups. Stop hiring
contractors to do city employees' jobs.
Get rid of city employees that don't
want to work.


10. Roads would be number one.
Maintain and upgrade sewer and wa-
ter lines in downtown Bartow. The


city should have money left over from
utilities. If not they have too many
city employees on city payroll.


Brian Hinton
1. I am running for city commission
because I think I can add to the mix of
commissioners with my knowledge
and experience in Bartow.






2. I am the best qualified candidate
because of my experience in business
and economic development as well as
in the renovation and rehabilitation of
facilities. I know how to develop a
budget and administer a budget as
well.





3. The biggest problem facing city gov-
ernment continues to be sources of
revenue to fund the basic city opera-
tions. Bartow is dependent on its util-
ity revenue to support most city pro-
grams. New sources of revenue need
to be pursued and quality develop-
ment needs to take place in order to
enhance our share of ad-valorem
taxes. I think that this can be
achieved by pursuing the right mix of
the right kind if development in our
expanded city limits.


4. I think that our city manager does a
good job in the day administration of
city government. I think he has excel-
lent staff in his various department
heads.









5. I think the first and most important
step in assuring the growth in county
operations in Bartow is to develop a
good working relationship with the
county manager and his department
heads. I would encourage the con-
struction of adequate parking facili-
ties around the court house complex
and I would encourage the CRA to ac-
quire additional facilities around the
complex to provide land for future ex-
pansion of county government.




6. I think that lower density resided-
tial development is of a much higher
quality than some of the density that
has been currently proposed along
E.F. Griffin Road. While not everyone
can afford a larger tract of acreage in
their homestead, it is clear that many
can. In addition there are already
many homesteads along this road that
will be affected by mass development.
I think this can be improved by
ting up some new zoning classifica-
tions that are in the best interest of
Bartow.

7. I think that to insure growth and
maintain our community's character,
we need to stand up for stronger zon-
ing. I would like to see a plan submit-
ted that would allow for the kind of
growth that we want: real neighbor-
hoods and access to parks and recrea-
tional facilities. We also need to pur-
sue business relocation's in our area
that will provide quality jobs. We can-
not all be in the service industry, and
that is the type of jobs that have been
created in Bartow in the last few
years. We need career jobs for skilled
and unskilled workers to replace those
that are gradually going away as
phosphate mining moves south.

8. The elimination of run-offs was de-
signed to save the taxpayers money in
not hosting multiple elections. I think
it was a good idea.

9. I would like to see continued im-
provement in the customer relations
in the utility department. I would like
to see the city offer a year round rate
for utilities for the elderly and those
less fortunate. This would smooth out
their payments and allow for im-
proved cash flow for all parties.


10. I think the biggest needs for capi-
tal improvements may fall in the mo-
tor pool both in terms of facilities and
equipment. In addition, with the
growth of the city we will be facing the
need to add a new fire station and pos-
sibly a police substation to cover the


expanded service area. A portion of
the land requirements could be negoti-
ated with future site developers as a
required dedication and contribution.
We might be able to do some joint use
facilities with other agencies that will
make the capital and operating costs
more palatable. We might be able to
acquire some of these items by way of
grants; other than that it will take
some borrowing and belt tightening to
fund the most urgently needed items.


Bill Read
1. I would like to give the public the
benefit of my life in the public sector.
When I ran for county surveyor in
1960, and won, I asked my opponent
why he thought I had won. He said
that the people must have thought
that it was time for the "ins" to be
"out." So let the people speak. I would
like to be known as "the people's
choice".
2. I have more than 60 years experi-
ence in public works engineering in
both the public and private sector. I
have worked with many public issues
and solved them with the application
of a little common sense. Throwing
money at the problem is not the solu-
tion.

3. The biggest problem facing city gov-
ernment is facing all of us in the pri-
vate sector as well. It is the lack of
education, moral standards, wisdom,
ability, and general knowledge in the
work force to perform even the most
menial task; absenteeism, tardiness,
and waste of time are the great prob-
lems of our generation. I find that our
general work force which claims to be
nervous, depressed, and otherwise dis-
tressed is perpetually plagued by per-
plexing personal problems and would
be only too happy to work for us if
they just had the time. I would recom-
mend aptitude tests, merit promotions
and pay incentives.

4. Mr. DeLegge and his staff are "pub-
lic servants" (they are our servants)
and are responsible to the city com-
mission. That's where the bucks stop.
"There is so much good work in the
worst of us, and so much bad in the
rest of us that is doesn't behoove the
most of us to talk about the rest of us."
--Mary Roberts Reinhart
"The bad that men do lives after them,
but the good is oft interred with the
bones. So be it with Caesar."-- William
Shakespeare

5. I would hope there would be no
more growth of county offices in Polk
County, but. Alas, the empire grows.
Can we afford more parking lots? Who
else benefits from these offices? Does
the county pay the same water, sewer,
electric rate that we do? How much
revenue does this generate? What true
planning has been done for this com-
plex? How many employees brown bag
it? How many restaurant seats are
within easy walking distance? How
many shops? With the advent of
Osama Bin Laden, moving to complex
to River Ranch Acres, next to the
bombing range, would be advisable.

6. High density "cookie cutter" hous-
ing and subdivision are not desirable
anywhere. One only needs to look at
Pinellas County, where suburban
sprawl has gobbled up all of the avail-
able land. Ride down U.S. 27 from
Clermont and see it happening here.
Or is that Lakeland sprawling down
from the highlands? How about a golf
course along E.F. Griffin Road with
one per acre density to be compatible
with the neighborhood? Multi family
with 20 per acre density in the inte-
rior with the entrance and exit boule-
vard terminating at the traffic light
opposite the temple of the four
wheeled god from Detroit.

7. Eliminate zoning. Encourage "crea-
tive" planning, i.e. parking areas for
downtown merchants (if any left), but
instead of orderly (regimented) growth
how about disorderly growth. Isn't
this what made America great? Why
improve Main Street at public expense
when private enterprise could do it
better if it wasn't so restricted. Let us
consider the production of wealth
rather than the consumption of public
funds in making unneeded improve-
ments. We need industrial growth to
bolster the economy. The biggest in-
dustry we have is government agen-
cies.

8. Winner takes all-- a runoff is not
necessary-- usually the winner pre-
vails in the run-off, and, who knows,
Swift Mud may require a permit for
the runoff.


9. More service and less government.
More efficiency and less busy work.
Reduce payroll costs by the reduction
of employees through attrition. Re-
duce utility rates charged by the city,
stop extending credit to favored indi-
viduals.


10. Improve traffic conditions. Im-
prove parking conditions and parking
lots. Sell window stickers for parking
finance. Create "Gray Panther Trails"


over existing ways to be used by golf
carts, skateboards, roller blades, hik-
ers, and bicyclist. Build an overpass
over State Road 60 to connect to the
hospital, Fort Frasier Trail, Wal-
Mart-North gate area, even Bartow
Ford to the rest of Bartow. Under-
ground electric lines to residences,
sewage pumping stations, and vital
services. Raw sewage ran into the
streets in many areas after our recent
hurricanes.

Canter Brown To Sign

New History Volume

At Bartow Book Store I


Dr. Canter Brown, Jr., who
has written a definitive two-vol-
ume history of Polk County un-
,der commission from the Polk
County Historical Assn., will be
.in Bartow Friday afternoon to
introducee the second volume.
S.: The second volume is entitled
"None Can Have Richer Memo-
ries, Polk County, Florida, 1940-
2000."
The first volume, entitled "In
the Midst of All That Makes Life


Worth Living, Polk County, Flor-
ida, to 1940," was published in
2001.
Brown will meet the public
and sign books at Bartow Chris-
tian Books and Gifts from 2:30 to
3:30 p.m.
Advance reservations may be
made by calling 533-2991.
Brown will be accompanied by
another Polk County Historian,
Dr. Mike Denham of Florida
Southern College


Craig Hite (left), executive manager/managing partner at Mi-
chael Holley Buick, Pontiac, GMC in Bartow, passes a check to John
Hutto, corporate sponsor chairman of the 2005 Bartow Relay For
Life. The dealership is one of the Relay's corporate sponsors, which
are very important to the overall success of the Relay event, Hutto
said. "(Corporate sponsorship) shows commitment and involvement
in our community's welfare and the work of the American Cancer
Society," he said. Bartow's Relay will be held Friday and Saturday,
April 15-16, at the Bartow Memorial Stadium at BHS. (Photo

Social Security


(Continued from Page 1A)

SHe supports the Patriot Act
"which has broken down some
walls between our police agencies
in the United States and our
intelligence agencies outside of
the United States," but realizes
there are continuing concerns
over the balancing of national
security and civil liberties.
"We do not do a good enough
job on oversight" of federal pro-
grams, and "I fault Congress for
that." The food stamp program
had a 21 percent error rate three
years ago; that has been reduced
to 7 percent. There has been
abuse of FEMA funds in Florida
counties that had little damage
from last year's hurricanes.
Federal funds for first
responders and law enforcement
agencies should be directed pri-
marily to equipping and training
agencies, and not to salaries and
other operating costs.
He favors a program that
would allow illegal aliens to
apply for United States citizen-
ship under a program under
which they would register their
presence in the country and
establish a good employment


record for as long as three years.
Federal law establishes
"parity" for mental health ser-
vices provided by health insur-
ance, and that provision is up for
reauthorization.
"Florida should be in pretty
good shape" when the Base
Realignment Closure Commis-
sion recommends military bases
for closure. MacDill Air Force
Base is home to both Special
Operations Command and
Central Command; "Avon Park
(bombing range) ought to be
okay;" "Jacksonville is fighting to
keep their aircraft carrier;"
Patrick Air Force Base tracks
both government and private
satellite launches; Eglin Air
Force Base "is in very good
shape." Smaller installations in
the Florida Panhandle are most
at jeopardy of being closed.
The campaign finance law
"is a bad law" because of the
exemption it allows so-called
"527 organizations" which are
exempt from its provisions.
There is little chance that
there will be offshore oil explo-
ration around Florida in the fore-
seeable future, "but it will be an
ongoing fight."


Housing Density


(Continued from Page 1A).

five acres, and neighbors have
protested plans to develop almost
all the vacant acreage as R-1 sub-
divisions.
"I'm not sure making money is
our main goal," Laurent said.
"Do we want to look exactly
like everything around
Lakeland?"
"Does the market have any-
thing to do with it?" DeLegge
asked.
"Right now, you don't have any
choice," Laurent replied.
"Are we going to have Bartow
look a little bit different? It's too
late to look much different."
Higher impact fees would dis-
courage high density develop-
ment, Laurent suggested. Impact
fees recover part of the cost that
new developments place on infra-
structure such as roads, water
and sewage treatment' plants,
libraries, parks, and other public
facilities.


Commissioner Rosie
Thornburg said that people who
build $350,000 to $400,000
homes "want a little bit of room."
"We're not impacting the value
of the homes," Wiegers said.
"Developers tell me the trend is
to smaller lots."
Property values are driven by
house sizes, not lot sizes, he said.
On a related topic, commis-
sioners authorized DeLegge to
retain the services of Tom Cloud
of Lakeland with the Gray
Robinson law firm to defend the
city in a land development suit
brought by John and Terry Frost.
The Frosts, who live on E.F.
Griffin Road, have filed suit to
block development of a 1,796-
unit "active adult community" on
a 550-acre tract between U.S.
Highway 98 and E.F. Griffin
Road. The Frosts allege that the
density is too high, and that the
proposed Silver Companies
development violates the city's
comprehensive plan and creates
"urban sprawl."

Workshops Set to Discuss

Future of Florida Forests


Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services is launching a
major planning project to help
shape the future of forests in
Florida.
As a result of development,
hurricanes, wildfires, insect and
disease outbreaks and the de-
mand for forestry products, Flor-
ida's forests today comprise only
14 million acres down from
more than 20 million acres in
the 1930s. Officials estimate
that the figure will decline to 12
million acres by the year 2030.
The planning effort that is
getting underway will focus on
how the state manages what are
inevitable changes rather
than merely reacting to those
changes.
Division of Forestry (DOF) of-
ficials have already taken the
first step, assessing the present
conditions of forests in Florida,
and the public can review that
assessment by visiting DOF's
website at www.fl-dof.com.
The public is encouraged to
participate by attending one of a
series of six workshops that will
be held around the state later
this month to solicit opinions on
the future of forests in Florida.
The dates, cities and locations
are as follows:
March 29: Tavares, Lake

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE
PERSONAL INJURY'


The Polk County Health De-
partment celebrates March as
National Nutrition Month, an
education and advocacy cam-
paign sponsored annually by the
American Dietetic Association
(ADA).
S This year's theme, "Get a
taste for nutrition," promotes a
balanced diet, along with daily
physical activity.
"Nutrition is important for
maintaining our health," said
Polk County Health Department
Director Dr. Daniel 0. Haight. "
During the month of March, and
throughout the remainder of the
year, we encourage all Polk
County residents to be mindful
of what they eat and take an ac-
tive part in improving and main-
taining a healthy balanced diet."
According to 2002 Behavioral
Risk Factor Surveillance Survey
(BRFSS) data, Polk County
ranked in the highest tier of obe-
sity among all counties in Flor-
ida. A little less than 30 percent
of Polk County's adults are
obese, compared to 22 percent
statewide.
The 2002 BRFSS data also in-
dicates that Polk County resi-
. dents consume fewer fruits and
vegetables then residents of
most other Florida counties.
Combining an active lifestyle
g with nutritious, low-fat foods can


help control weight and reduce
the risk of many chronic diseases
including cancer, high blood
pressure, diabetes, heart disease
and stroke.
To maintain a healthy life-
style, the PCHD and ADA rec-
ommend these tips:
Maintain a balanced diet
with a variety of foods, including
vegetables, whole grains, fruits,
non-fat dairy products, beans,
lean meats, poultry and fish.
Eat greater amounts of
fruits and vegetables, and fewer
high-calorie foods.
Enjoy foods in healthy, mod-
erate portions.
Choose foods rich in vita-
mins, minerals and fibers over
those that are processed.
Balance food choices with
physical activity to achieve and
maintain a healthy weight and
lifestyle.
The PCHD provides resources
and information on nutrition and
healthy living through programs
such as the Women, Infants and
Children (WIC) program. The
PCHD also is involved in pro-
moting healthy living within lo-
cal communities.

family," Riley said.
This workshop is designed to
explain how potential home buy-
ers may obtain a mortgage and
the various programs that are
available to help, including down
payment assistance. Another im-
portant feature of the session is
to emphasize the important role
home owners play in stabilizing
the community, Lewis said.

FHP Lauching Safety

Program For Spring Break


Florida Highway Patrol (FHP)
has announced plans for "Opera-
tion Safe Break," scheduled for
March 18 through April 28, to
coincide with spring break ac-
tivities throughout Florida.
"We have noticed through the
years that during spring break
many students attempt to drive
long distances at high speed; in
many cases, without resting in
order to reach their spring break
destination," said FHP director
Colonel Christopher Knight.
"These factors sometimes re-
sult in drivers falling asleep at
the wheel and ending up crash-
ing, sometimes with unfortunate
results," he added.
Historically, March and April
have been the peak months each
year for traffic crashes in Flor-
ida. These two months corre-
spond with several special
events in Florida which increase
traffic volumes and the types of
travel that are more likely to
lead to traffic fatalities.
The special events, which ac-
tually begin in February, cause
an increase in travel throughout
the state. Bike Week and race
-weeks in Daytona Beach, spring
.break, and Easter vacations all
contribute to an increase in the
number of vehicles on Florida's
roadways.
Add to:this the onset of the
northern migration of the state's
"seasonal" population and the
scene is set for major traffic chal-
lenges, Kight said.
In an effort to provide a safe
driving environment during this

Spring

Carnival Set

Sante Fe Catholic High
School will hold its first annual
Spring Carnival on April 8-10.
The carnival will include
rides, games, food, entertain-
ment, student artwork and other
events.
Parking and admission are
free.
The carnival will be located
on the school grounds, 3110
Hwy. 92, Lakeland.
For more information, call

Volunteers

Polk County Sheriff Grady
Judd is seeking volunteers will-
ing to work with law enforce-
ment members.
Establishing a volunteer sup-
port group is a top priority, Judd
said.
In the program, volunteers
will be given the opportunity to
serve in a variety of support ca-
pacities throughout the agency,
and serve as community liaisons.
Volunteers will be able to
work flexible hours and work in
areas of their choosing. Any
training or equipment required
to perform the job will be pro-
vided.

period, the FHP will conduct Op-
eration Safe Break details in all
10 field troops statewide.
Special overtime funding pro-
vided by the Florida Legislature
will be used in order to increase
the presence of troopers on inter-
states, state roads, the Florida
Turnpike, and other areas where
law enforcement presence is es-
sential, Knight said. Troopers
will be using radar, laser, air-
craft, Mercury Marauders, and
unmarked patrol cars in their
enforcement efforts.
"Through the use of selective
enforcement details and in-
creased visibility of our troopers,
we hope to experience a safer
spring break period this year,"
said Colonel Knight.
Each FHP field troop has
planned different enforcement
activities for the duration of Op-
eration Safe Break; however, the
overall goals of the initiative are
the same:
S* To reduce traffic deaths, in-
juries, and property damage at-
tributed to vehicular and pedes-
trian traffic.
To aggressively enforce all
traffic laws.
To reduce criminal activities
on targeted roadways through
detection, prevention, and ag-
gressive enforcement.
To create a safer driving en-
vironment through public educa-
tion concerning safety belt us-
age, awareness of driving under
the influence, and the hazards of
speeding.
*' To maintain high visibility
patrol and assist the motoring
public, while ensuring safety.

Florida Highway Patrol is is-
suing an alert to citizens regard-
ing a phone scam that is spread-
ing throughout Florida.
Callers who are impersonat-,
ing Florida Highway Patrol
Troopers, as well as other law
enforcement officers, have been
contacting citizens by telephone
at random, advising them that a
family member has been in-
volved in a traffic crash.
The con artist urges the
phone owner to dial *72 or 72#
in order to speak with a doctor.
By doing this, the phone owner
will unknowingly permit the
caller on the other end to use
their phone line for making local
or long distance telephone calls
which will ultimately be billed to
the phone owner's account.
Citizens who suspect that
they may have fallen victim to a
con artist phone scam must con-
tact their local phone company to
ascertain how to remove call for-
warding from their telephone
forwarding system.
Most of these phone calls have
originated, from pay phones lo-
cated within correctional facili-
ties.
Some correctional facilities
have started playing a recording
on all collect calls dialed from
pay phones within the facility in
which the receiver of the call is
advised that they are receiving a
collect call from a correctional fa-
cility.
Many of the calls have origi-
nated from a correctional facility
in Miami-Dade.
Note that if your phone is
equipped with caller ID, these
calls begin with 1-305-459-xxxx


and the ID name will be TCG
payphones.
The Miami-Dade Correctional
Facility is not the only facility
from which these calls can origi-
nate. The above number is for in-
formational purposes only.
Victims or potential victims
should immediately contact the
law enforcement agency the
caller claimed to represent.
Anyone receiving a suspicious
call is asked to make notations
about the caller's voice, request a
call back number, and take ad-
vantage of the caller ID feature
if they have the equipment in-
stalled on their phone.
The Florida Highway Patrol
does not notify family members
of crash victims via collect calls
from pay phones, nor would they
request anyone to dial a *72 or
72# number.
Anyone who suspects that he
might have been victimized by
an individual who" identified
himself as a member of the Flor-
ida Highway Patrol is asked to
contact the local Florida High-
way Patrol station.

Glide On Over to the Florida



AquarIur a


If you haven't visited The Florida
Aquarium recently, you'll find some
new exhibits that explore not only
Florida's water story, but some exot -
creatures from other locales, as el -
Celebrating its tenth anniversary
on March 31, the 200,000-square-foot
aquarium follows a drop of water from "
its underground source to the open
sea. More than 10,000 aquatic plants
and animals can be seen in four gal- --
leries: wetlands, bays and beaches,
coral reefs and sea hunt.
The Florida Aquarium is a not-for- -
profit educational and cultural attrac-
tion which has drawn some 3.5 million
residents and visitors.
In addition to the main galleries,
the Aquarium offers Explore A Shore,
Dive with Sharks, Behind-the-Scenes
Tours, Invaders! Florida's Most
Unwanted Species, No Bone Zone and
Eco-Tours on a 64-foot catama-
ran.
The Florida Aquarium is open
9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, except
Thanksgiving and Christmas.
General admission is $17.95 for
adults, $14.95 for seniors 60+, '
$11.95 for children under 12, and '" '
free for children 2 and under.
Additional charges apply to tours
and dives. For more information, call 813-273-4000 or visit the web-. i: "5
site at www.flaquarium.org. The Florida Aquarium is in Downtown
Tampa at Channelside.
(Clockwise from top left:)
1) A beautiful, magenta anemone is one of the sea animals visiting
from outside the state. It can be seen in the touchtank, home to other'
richly-colored anemones and sea stars.
2) Cownose rays swim in the beach tank with other fishes. Just
below this cute fellow's face can be seen the spine of another ray. The
spine delivers a toxic sting to sharks and to people if they accidental-
ly step on a resting ray. The "waves" crashing on the beaches exhibit
are created by a mechanical wave generator which pushes the water
back and forth, simulating natural tides and surges.
3) Jellies may use chemical weapons to paralyze their prey, but
they create a beautiful, dreamy scene floating in their tank.
4) Corals offer secret rooms and hiding places for fish of many col-
ors.
5) It looks like a plant, but this leafy sea dragon is all animal, cov- .'~5' ,
ered with yellowish green leaves. The Australian native is kin to sea-
horses, trumpetfish and pipefish.
Real life sea dragons from the coast of Southern Australia find a
home in the Aquarium, along with Florida's dwarf seahorse. Only one
inch tall when full-grown, these little creatures live in sea grass
meadows. Habitat destruction and collection for the pet trade and tra-
ditional medicines threaten the state's native species.
Sea dragons' population is in Severe decline, and alspecial export
permit is required to display them. The Florida Aquarium in one of
only a handful of aquariums and zoos in the world to exhibit these
unique creatures.
6) Purple and orange sea stars feel soft and hard.
7) Another Australian creature is the potbelly seahorse.
8) 'Visitors can get personal with sea creatures in the S.C.U.M.
(sea stars, crabs, urchins and mollusks) Touchtank.


Baby turtles have been a popular pet for youngsters, but they are
considered an invader when let loose in the wild. These have their
own little island in the Aquarium's unwanted species exhibit.
Here visitors will learn what invasive species are, how they can
stop them and what to do about invasives already here.

FWC to Clarify How to Measure

Jackets Outscore Opposition 18-2,

Sweep Lake Region Spring Classic


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

It may only be a Spring Break
Tournament, but the Bartow
High School Yellow Jackets have
to be happy with the way it came
out.
Bartow outscored its oppo-
nents 18-2 in three games to
sweep the Lake Region Spring
Classic and improve its record to
11-1 overall.
"Pitching and defense won it
for us," said Bartow Coach Eric
Danapilis.
After shutting out Avon Park
(7-5) on Monday 6-0, the Jackets
were well on their way toward a
tournament sweep.
The next hurdle was a scrappy
Santa Fe Catholic team (8-2),
who, despite being undersized in
comparison, were able to hold a
two-run lead on the Jackets
through the fifth inning.
Initially, Bartow had trouble
with junior pitcher Nick McCully.
McCully had cruised through five
innings, striking out seven and
holding the Jackets to two harm-
less hits.
In the top of the sixth inning,
McCully began to have trouble
finding the strike zone and after
walking Lezon Dixon on five
pitches, Santa Fe Head Coach
Matt Franzino had seen enough.
Senior Jared Cauley came in for a
possible save opportunity, but the
Jackets had other ideas.
"The real key was that we
faced one of the top pitchers in
the whole county and he pretty
much shut us down," said Bartow
Assistant Coach Greg Crum. "I
guess when they changed pitch-
ers I guess our confidence went
up' and we put together quite a
few hits there."
The Jackets ended up scoring
six runs in the inning on Cauley,
starting off with an RBI for senior
M.J. Wilson, who drew a walk
with the bases loaded. Robby
Ratcliffe drew another RBI walk,
which set the table for a two-run
single from catcher Joey
Manning. Stevie Chase ended the
scoring for the inning with an
RBI ground out.
The four-run lead was more
than enough for starting pitcher
Jack Murphy to work with, but
the Jackets weren't done scoring
runs. Dixon, batting out of the
nine spot, led off the seventh
inning with a home run on a 2-2
count, his first of the season. ,
"I've been having a little trou-
ble hitting (the ball), but I've been
trying to work on it at practice
and today I guess it showed off,"


Dixon said. "Hopefully there will
be many more."
Later in the inning, Murphy
drove in what would be the final
run of the game, bringing the
score to 8-2.
Murphy, who pitched six
innings and got the win, had trou-
ble in the early goings, allowing
five hits and two walks in the
first two innings alone.
"I was getting behind hitters
and I had to throw certain pitches
and they kind of knew what was
coming," Murphy said.
Then in the third, Murphy
tried to go inside on sophomore
Nate Striz, but left a fastball
hanging, which Striz blasted out
of the park. That would be the
last run Santa Fe would score.
"(After the homer) I kind of got
mad and that woke me up a little
bit. I knew that we were playing a
1-A team and I had to step up,"
Murphy said.
I Murphy ended his night with
seven hits, seven strikeouts and a
walk in six innings, before Mark
Donhaiser came in to pitch in the
seventh and retired the Santa Fe
batters in order.
Coach Crum said the decision
not to let Murphy finish out the
game was a tough one, but he
said Donhaiser needed to get in
some playing time to be ready for
later in the season.
After the back-to-back wins,
the Jackets' next opponent was
Lake Region (4-7) on Wednesday.
With the tournament winner
decided by record, the final sched-
uled game essentially became the
championship. Like Bartow, Lake


Region also had won its past two
games. The Thunder defeated
Kathleen 6-0 on Monday and beat
Mulberry 6-3 the next day.
Bartow ace Drew Collier got
the start, and the undefeated
fastballer (5-0) went all the way,
striking out eight and allowing no
runs.
"I didn't have my best stuff,
but I had a good defense behind
me. That's what won it for us."
Collier said he used his fast-
ball to "get ahead and stay ahead"
and also to set up his breaking
pitches.
On' the offensive side, the
Jackets would score all the runs
they needed in the top of the first.
Back-to-back bloop singles
between the right fielder and first
base by Ratcliffe and Manning
scored Wilson and Brent Delph.
In the top of the fifth, Wilson
came up big with a two-out two-
RBI double that came inches
short of being a home run.
"I -came out ahead, tried to
relax and came out with a base
hit," Wilson said.
The Thunder were unable to
respond and went down 4-0 in
what was the tournament final.
For his efforts, Wilson was
named tournament MVP
"I struggled most of the tour-
nament, but I guess I came
through tonight. I had four RBIs
on the tournament, but the MVP
doesn't matter. It's how we play
as a team," the senior said.
Up next for the Jackets is a big
district match-up with Lake
Wales at home. Game time is 7:30
p.m.


MAKING THE STRETCH, senior first baseman M.J. Wilson
completes the 4-6-3 double play for the Bartow High School Yellow
Jacket baseball team on Tuesday in thq first inning of the Jackets'
game against Santa Fe. Wilson, who had four RBIs during the week,
was named tournament MVP.


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) is proposing rule amend-
ments to clarify and standardize
how fishermen should measure
saltwater finfish.
FWC's saltwater fishing rules
express size limits of marine fish
in either fork length or total
length. Size limit measurements
for fish expressed in fork length,
such as Spanish mackerel, pom-
pano, and cobia, are considered
to be easily understood by fisher-
men and do not need further
clarification beyond "from the tip
of the snout to the rear center
edge of the tail."
However, FWC rules do not
clearly specify how to measure
fish that have total length size
limits, such as red drum, spotted
seatrout, and snook, subjecting
the measurement of total length
to interpretation by anglers and
law enforcement officers.
In order to clarify how total
length size limits should be
measured, the FWC .has pro-
posed a series of rule amend-
ments specifying that total
length is determined by measur-
ing the fish with its mouth
closed and with its tail squeezed
or compressed. The goal of the
proposal is to provide a standard
measurement procedure that is
understood by resident and visit-
ing anglers and that FWC offi-
cers can enforce uniformly.
The FWC will review and dis-
cuss draft rule amendments re-
garding total length measure-

Pastor Saves Abandoned Eloise Church


Pastor Rafael Batista is cur-
Srently working to reopen the for-
mer First Baptist Church of
Eloise, located, at 108 First
Street, known as the "Primera
SIglesia Bautista de Eloise" in re-
.cent years.
The church buildings have
been abandoned for the past cou-
ple of years and have fallen into
disrepair.
Pastor Batista is seeking vol-
Sunteers to help get the church
reopened as the "Rivers of Living
'Water, Spaniih Baptist
Church."
He has scheduled his first
service for Sunday, April 10.
Despite much damage that
has occurred over the past years
by vandals,, neglect, and the
weather, the sanctuary is still in
relatively good condition, Pastor
SBatista said.
"But there is' rmnth to do," he
said.
The ceilings ini many of the
;:rooms are rotting; as are the
; eaves of the buildings due to the
poor condition of the roof. Just
recently, rooms. that formerly
held Sunday School classes and
Church offices had been used as
temporary homes by migrant
workers and others. ,
.Pastor Batista is working
with volunteers frdoi area Bap-


tist churches to bring new life to
the forgotten church. Volunteers
like Perry Kemp, a member of
Calvary Baptist Church in
nearby Winter Haven, and Ernie
Simmons, a contractor from
Parkland Baptist Church, have
donated their time working on a
variety of projects.
"There's a lot of work to do
here," Kemp said.
Members of the First Baptist
Church of Lake Wales, Ken
Johnson and his grandson,
Derek, have pitched in with la-
bor and materials as well. An-
other fellow church member,
Kent Windham, brought three
different Bible study groups, in-
cluding college students, young
adults, and senior citizens to
help with roof work, interior
painting, ripping up floors, and
debris removal.
Pastor Batista will meet with
volunteers at the church every
Saturday morning until the
church is in shape.
"Anyone is welcome to come
and help," Pastor Batista said.
"It is the effort of many people in
many churches."
The pastor said he envisions
a day when the church will
house not only a growing congre-
gation, but a children's ministry
and a daycare.

\ Reflections On


Faith

By Roger Campbell


Resurrecting Your Church After Easter


After Easter, some pack away
their religion until Christmas or
even the next resurrection cele-
bration.
But an annual dressed-up
trek to church on Easter Sunday,
without allowing this miracle to
radically change our lives,
misses the significance of the
resurrection and is a far cry from
what happened following the
first Easter.
While church attendance pat-
terns now show growth from
Christmas to Easter, decline sets
in following Easter break and
continues steadily downward un-
til summer vacations end.
The opposite was true in the
first century church. Easter gave
new hope to those who had been
in the pits following the crucifix-
ion. They now found their faith
renewed because their Lord had
risen from the grave.
The responsibility of evangel-
izing the world, given by the
risen Lord to His followers in
their post-resurrection meeting
with Him (Matthew 28:18-20),
must have seemed impossible to
achieve. Nevertheless, 2,000
years later, millions meet in
churches weekly to worship be-
cause these commissioned ones
were faithful to their assign-
ment.
Those early believers should
be examples to us all. They had
none of our present tools for out-
reach and not one church growth
expert among them, but they
were far more effective in multi-
plying their number than we are
today.
Without printing presses, ra-
dio and television ministries, or
even church buildings, they
planted thriving churches over
their world and by the end of the
first century, had grown from
120 to approximately 10 million.
Churches exist in our time be-
cause that unlikely company was
convinced death had lost the
game and they set out to spread
the good news.
We're indebted to them for
their example of faith under fire
even under the threat of martyr-
dom.
In some ways, the early


church was powerless. The mem-
bers were so strapped for funds
that they had to sell their be-
longings and pool their resources
to survive.
The first century church also
was without political power. Nei-
ther the apostles nor their mem-
bers could pull strings in high
places in order to gain govern-
ment favors. And there is no evi-
dence that they ever tried to do
so.
But the church did have evan-
gelistic fervor that enabled them
to overcome all other obstacles.
And that is the area where many
churches are weak today.
Some church growth is now
nothing more than trading
sheep. Dissatisfied members go
from one church to another, and
there are enough floaters ever on
the move to keep the average at-
tendance about the same.
If these unhappy travelers
would give their energies to tell-
ing the good news of the resur-
rection instead of finding fault
with each other, they would for-
get their complaints and commu-
nities would benefit from their
dedication to the real purpose of
their existence.
A troubled church once sent
their pastor to me for advice in
helping them put away their dif-
ferences and get on the grow. He
said he couldn't understand why
he and his members couldn't
solve their problems since they
had been working on them for so
long.
"Has God done anything good
for you?" I asked.
Finally, he remembered a
church teen had found a new life
through faith in Christ. Then I
knew what to tell this perplexed
pastor.
"Go home and focus on what
has happened in the life of this
teenager," I said.
Let's get back to the example
set by those early Christians
who were more interested in peo-
ple than programs, a strategy
that will resurrect any church
any time even yours.

The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
New K.J.V. Psalm 33:5


The Goodness of God

God's goodness to each of us is demonstrated through the
many blessingsthat we receive from Him each day.
Unfortunately we may not always be aware of His goodness
because we are too involved with all the concerns and the
activities of the day. However, an unexpected meeting of a
neighbor or friend, a telephone call from a loved one, or a
warm compliment from another, are all, little gifts that
reflect how much our Heavenly Father loves us. Our physi-
cal and mental health, as well as our spiritual well-being,
can all be attributed to God's goodness. And God's way of
reminding us of how much we need Him. God cares for us,
and being mindful of His goodness helps to strengthen us,
especially when we. are-faced with the more difficult condi-
tions in our lives. And, when we are faced with hard times,
God's:never-ending love will help us grow and draw closer to
Him. Being a positive person and seeing God's goodness in
our lives is a blessing, and He asks nothing in return, except
our love, faith and trust in Him.

Musings From God's Penman



He Is Risen, Indeed Sir, Glory-Hallelujah-Amen


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER

As a young person growing up
in the church, I was familiar
with Easter.
I heard all the Bible stories
and knew them by heart. I un-
derstood this was a special time
of the year for all Christians.
The Easter Sunday service
could get quite long for a young
person. If it was not for the
Easter bonnets to admire, it
could have been rather boring
for us young folk.
"Admire" is rather a strong
word for the situation.
I do not think you could say
that we were admiring those
Easter bonnets. If you used the
phrase, "made fun of,"'you were
probably closer to the truth, but
you did not hear it from me.
There was nothing quite like
some of those Easter bonnets to
bring out the giggles in the best
of us children. Perhaps the most
notorious of all Easter bonnet
wearers in our church was Aunt
Tilly.
Aunt Tilly was not a blood
relative to anyone in the church
that I ever knew, but everyone
in the church called her Aunt
Tilly. She was an eccentric old
spinster and lived alone.
Nobody was more fashionable
than Aunt Tilly, and we all
looked forward to Easter Sunday
just to see her new Easter bon-
net. She never wore the sanie
one twice. I often wondered
whatever happened to all those-
bonnets.
Easter was not Easter with-
out Aunt Tilly's bonnet.


Aunt Tilly knew how to wear
a hat and how to make an en-
trance on Sunday morning, espe-
cially on an Easter Sunday.
Our pastor would begin the
Easter service with the invoca-
tion. We would all stand, and
sometimes that prayer would
last a good eight minutes.
I know, for I had timed him
oh several occasions. He never
let me down.
When he finished that prayer,
we would sit down and prepare
for the first hymn. Just before
that first hymn, Aunt Tilly
would make her entrance wear-
ing her Easter bonnet and sit
right in the second pew up front
by the organ side.
That Easter bonnet would fill
up the entire front of our sanctu-
ary, much to the delight of Aunt
Tilly. Her Easter bonnet usually
was the fashion statement of the
year. Each one was more elabo-
rate then the previous one.
In those days, everyone wore
hats of some sort. Each hat de-
fined the personality of the
wearer, and this was no more
evident than on Easter Sunday.
Even Fanny Diffendaffer wore
a special hat on Easter Sunday.
Sister Fanny, as we called her,
was a retired, independent mis-
sionary.
She spent her entire mission-
ary career in Africa. Several
times, she was invited to show
her slides on her work in Africa,
but she always declined.
Someone found out that she
was embarrassed by those slides.
The people she worked with
did not wear clothes and she re-


fused to show such pictures in
the "House of God."
I often wondered what those
"clothing-optional" people really
thought of our Sister Fanny. She
always wore those dresses with a
collar up to her chin, long
sleeves, and the hem down past
her ankle.
All the time I knew her, all I
ever saw was her round, smiling
face. Most of the time, she even
wore lace gloves.
My father once went to her
home to put on storm windows
for the upcoming winter season.
I tagged along to assist in the
project.
We had never been to her
home before and were a little
shocked.
Sister Fanny did not have any
electricity in her home.
Old-fashioned kerosene lamps
illuminated her home. Instead of
an electric stove, she did all her
cooking on an old wood cook
stove modified to burn coal.
She had no radio or television,
and I wondered how in the world
she entertained herself.
In the corner of her living
room was an organ unlike any
organ I had ever seen.
Being a kid, I blurted out to
the consternation of my father,
"Sister Fanny, how do you play
your organ without electricity?"
She chuckled and said, "Come
here and I'll show you."
I walked over and she began
to play. It was an old pump or-
gan. In order to play, it you had
to pump it, almost like riding a
bicycle.
She pumped and played

hymns all the time we were put-
ting on her storm windows.
Even Sister Fanny wore a
special hat on Easter Sunday. Of
course, Sister Fanny always
wore a hat on Sunday. For
Easter Sunday, she put in her
hat a freshly picked, yellow daf-
fodil.
Sister Fanny rarely said much
in church. She would come and
quietly sit in her pew and never
spoke out. The only time she
really spoke was at the prayer
meeting when she would pray.
And, could she pray.
It was nothing for Sister
Fanny to pray for an hour on her
worst day. Just when you
thought she was winding down
and sliding into the last "Amen,"
she would get an inspiration and
take off on another flight of in-
tense prayer.
Easter Sunday or Resurrec-
tion Sunday as Sister Faniiy pre-
ferred, was a special day for her.
She always came to church early
wearing her hat with the freshly
picked daffodil. It was the only
time she really seemed excited.
When anyone greeted her, she
almost shouted back, "He Is
Risen, Indeed, Sir. Glory-Halle-
lujah-Amen."
"Moreover, brethren, I declare
unto you the gospel, which I

Words on paper. They will always be the most powerful fols human beings use to
communicate. They place no limits on how much we can say, and the furthest reaches
of the imagination are the only limits on what we can show. They have the power to
make complex ideas simple, and simple ideas powerful. We do more than read them, we
hold them. And, from the advertising we see in publications to the letters we receive
in the mail, the things we hold in our hands have the quickest routes to our hearts.

Have a


Happy


Easter I


Why Is It?

A person wakes up after sleeping

under an ADVERTISED blanket

on an ADVERTISED mattress

and pull off ADVERTISED pajamas,

bathes in an ADVERTISED shower,

shaves with an ADVERTISED razor,

brushes his or her teeth with ADVERTISED toothpaste,

washes with ADVERTISED soap,

puts on ADVERTISED clothes,

drinks a cup of ADVERTISED coffee,

drives to work in an ADVERTISED car

and then...

refuses to ADVERTISE, believing that it doesn't pay.

Later, if business is poor,

the person ADVERTISES it for sale.
