On Friday, April 1, Health
Management Associates, Inc.,
purchased Bartow Memorial
Hospital from LifePoint
Hospitals, Inc.
It immediately unfurled a ban-
ner renaming the hospital Bartow
Regional Medical Center, and
installed a 29-year-old chief exec-
utive officer who pledged to speed
up service in the emergency
department, make the operating
rooms more efficient, and install
the latest in medical equipment.
By Friday afternoon, replace-
ment of all computers in the hos-
pital was in full swing.
Justin Davis, who was
installed by HMA to replace
LifePoint's David Darden as
CEO, said the community will see
improvements in facilities, med-
ical care, community involve-
ment, and even in landscaping of


the grounds.
Changing the
Bartow Memorial


name from
Hospital to


Bartow Regional Medical Center
reflects that commitment, he
said.
HMA's goal is to have emer-
gency room visits average no
more than two-and-a-half hours
from arrival to departure, and
Bartow RMC will strive to
achieve that standard, he said.
"We at HMA are committed to
providing quality medical care
close to home. It is our goal that
this hospital become a true
regional medical center through
medical staff recruitment,
enhancement of all the services
we offer, expansion of all the ser-
vices we offer, and community
involvement."
A regional medical center has a
wider offering of specialties and
services, he said.
"It's my goal that this hospital
become the provider of choice for
Bartow, south Lakeland,
Highland City, Mulberry, Fort
Meade and the surrounding
areas," he said.
HMA brought in Tonja Mosley
from its Brandon, Miss., hospital


to be chief financial officer, and
Ken Emmitt from Heart of
Florida Regional Medical Center
in Haines City as interim chief
nursing officer. Emmitt had been
employed at BMH previously.
No other staff changes are
planned, the new CEO said.
Davis has been chief operating
officer at Heart of Florida for the
past three years, and was COO of
the HMA hospital in Lancaster,
Pa., for two years before that.
A native of Pennsylvania, he
grew up in Bayville, N.Y, "a com-
munity much like Bartow" on
Long Island.
His undergraduate degree
from Binghamton (N.Y.)
University is in anthropology, and
he has a master's degree in
health care administration from
Cornell University.
He presently .lives in Orlando,
but has bought a home in south
Lakeland.
"The first projects we'll work
on are emergency department

Main Street Disruption


Will Last Six Months,


But Will Be Worth It


Bartow Voters To Choose


City Commissioner Tuesday


Bartow voters will go to the
polls on Tuesday to decide
whether to elect City
Commissioner Cal Adams to a
third term on the city commission
or to replace him with one of
three challengers.
Since Bartow has eliminated
run-offs in city elections, the can-
didate who receives the most
votes will win the election, even if
that is fewer than half the votes
cast. With four candidates, that is
a distinct possibility.
Challenging Adams are Gerald
J. Cochran, Brian Hinton, and
William A. Read, Jr.
Adams, a retired building con-


tractor, has served on the com-
mission for six years, including
one year as mayor.
He was the county.commis-.
sion's first building and codes
supervisor, and was a member of
Bartow's zoning board of adjust-
ment for 36 years.
Cochran, a perennial critic of
city government and city man-
agers, has run for the commission
a number of times, hut has never
won. He has attended city com-
mission meetings for many years.
He is retired from Crown Can.
Hinton, making his first bid for
election, is president of BarLow
Consulting Group, Inc., and is


executive director of the Bartow
Community Health Care
Foundation, Inc.
He has served on the city's
recreation advisory board, and on
a Community Redevelopment
Agency advisory group.
Read owns W.A. Read, Jr., and
Associates, an engineering firm,
and has more than 60 years expe-
rience in public works engineer-
ing.
In 1960, he won election to the
office of county surveyor. ('That no
longer is an elective office.)
All four are candidates for Seat
4 on the commission, one of two
at-large seats, meaning that can-


didates may live anywhere within
the city limits.
' Leo Longworth, who repre-
sents the eastern election district,
won a new term without opposi-
tion.
All registered voters who live
within the city limits are eligible
to vote in the election.
All voting will take place at the
Bartow Civic Center. Hours of the
election are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The city commission will meet
as a canvassing board at the
supervisor of elections office at 7
p.m. to count absentee ballots and
certify results of the election.

For six months or so, Main
Street merchants will have to put
up with minimal parking,
impaired access to their stores,
and closings of intersections.
But in the long run, it will be
well worth it.
That was the message for
downtown merchants and proper-
ty owners at a forum Tuesday
night on plans for the redesign
and reconstruction of Main
Street.
The work will begin today and
is to be completed no later than
Nov. 5, just in time for the Winter
Crafts Festival.
James Q. Duane, executive
director of the Community
Redevelopment Agency and the
Main Street program, and repre-
sentatives of the general contrac-
tor, engineer, and streetscape
design firm met with downtown
interests for a preconstruction
workshop at the Bob Crawford
Agriculture Building.
"There are going to be difficult
problems," .Duane acknowledged.
"We'ri asking you tIo nlk to us.
Work with us; be patient.


"This project is being done to
enhance your business."
Duane and spokesmen for
David Nelson Construction Co.,
the engineering firm of Post,
Buckley, Schuh and Jernigan,
and the consulting firm of
Glatting Jackson emphasized
that they will work with individ-
ual merchants to minimize the
inconvenience.
For example, they agreed not
to work on the second Saturday pf
each month, when Main Street
sponsors an antique fair.
"I think it's an exciting day ...
a wonderful adventure," said
Mayme Clark, chairman of the
CRA, which is a major source of
funds for the project.
Pat Steed of PBS&J said the
entire length of Main Street, from
the west end of Van Fleet Drive to
the east end of the State Road 60
bypass, a distance of 2.1 miles,
will be repaved, and live oaks and
smaller shumard oaks will be
planted for the entire distance.
Decorative gateways will be
established at Van Fleet on the
west. and U.S. Highway 17 on the
east, she said.
The most intensive work will
be in the" five blocks between
Broadway and Jackson AvOenue.


The 100 blocks of South Wilson
Avenue and South Florida Avenue
also will be redesigned.
"Wayfinding signs" will be
posted in the downtown area to
help visitors find their destina-
tions and parking lots.
The PBS&J engineering firm
will be the clearing house for
dealing with problems and con-
tacting the construction company.
The phone number is 533-
7000.
Parking on Main Street in the
heart of downtown Bartow will be
disrupted for about six months,
said Sam Allen, project manager,
and Mike Shain, superintendent,
for David Nelson Construction.
Signs will point visitors to off-
street parking.
When the project is completed,
there will be a net gain of three
parking spaces on Main Street,
from 58 up to 61, Pete Sechler of
the Glatting Jackson firm said.
The street will be narrowed to
two 12-foot traffic lanes, and side-
walks will be widened by up to
four feet on both sides of the
street "to create a pedestrian-ori-
ented retailing venue," he said.
Wrought iron streetlights.

Fifty years ago on April 8,
1955, Margaret and Amos Skip-
per said "I do" at their wedding
ceremony in Bartow.
Margaret, who was from

anna, Fla., was fresh out of the
U.S. Army and went to work for
the phosphate mines. He met
Margaret at the A & W Root
Beer stand, where she worked as
a waitress.
After they were married, Jim
Emmitt of Bartow, who owned
the A & W Root Beer stand in
Bartow and one in Fort Meade,
asked the couple to operate the
one in Fort Meade for him.
The Skippers did this for five
years.
They have lived HDrt Me-
ade since 1959, and have owned
or managed several other busi-
nesses through the years.


Mrs. Skipper retired after
working for Western Auto for 24
years.
Mr. Skipper was in the grass-
ing business with Royce McDon-
ald and worked for Helms Broth-
ers. He is now retired. He is a
Mason and a member of the
board of trustees at First Church
of God in Fort Meade, where the
couple attends church.

and son-in-law, Wanda and Va-
ciel Newman of Fort Meade, and
a grandson, Chris Newman, who
teaches surgical technology in
Deltona.

versary celebration Saturday,

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

One Giant Step for Inchworm 101


When I was in high school,
doing my lessons on a slate by the
light of an open fire, walking to
school five miles through the
snow, uphill in both directions,
math was not my best subject.
Come to think of it, I'm not
sure what was my best subject,
but I recall being pretty good at
REE-cess in kindergarten.
As for high school math, I
Made an A in Algebra I and
_ Algebra II, a B in Plane Geometry,
a C in Solid Geometry, and a D in
Trigonometry. Are we seeing a
pattern here, one that unfolds
with mathematical predictabili-
ty?


In college, I exempted (I can-
not imagine how) nine hours of
math, and went directly to Math
109-B, which I believe was enti-
tled Theory of Mathematics.
I flunked it in 1958, and if I
were to take it again today, I
would flunk it again. In retro-
spect, I'm pretty sure it was the
precursor to Modern Math,
which eventually made its way


into the public school system,
where it became to math educa-
tion what frontal lobotomy was
to the practice ot psychiatry.
I could have done a lot better
under terms of a bill being con-
sidered by the Florida
Legislature.
Proponents speak of it in terms
of "academic freedom" and "bill
of rights" and "fair and bal-
anced" curriculum. The chances
are it's also low in calories and
carbohydrates and harmless to
the aquifer.
"I believe there are spots in. the
universities I call them totali-
tarian niches where, in the
cover of the classroom dictator,
professors are completely in
charge of' what is taught,"
declared Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-
Ocala, sponsor of House Bill 837.
As explained by a capitol
reporter for The Tampa Tribune,
HB 837 would pretty much allow
students to demand that their
professors teach what the stu-
dents want to be taught, rather




ap1~


than vvwat the professor wants to
teach.
For instance, if a history pro-
fessor taught about the
Holocaust, a student could insist
that hle also teach the view of
those who claim the Holocaust
never happened. a(ust big, misun-
derstood pizza ovens, right,
Professor?)
If a biology professor taught
evolution, a student could
demand that the Big Bang Theory
be given equal billing. (We could
call it "Scopes Trial Florida, 21st
Century.")
The bill is intended to require
liberal professors (whom I sus-
pect to be in the majority in pub-
lic universities) to teach views
more accommodating to conserv-
atives. (As an unapologetic con-
servative, I hate to be associated
with the "Holocaust never hap-
pened" crowd, but sometimes
you just have to take the bitter
with the sweet.)
Any student who didn't get
his way could do what any red-


blooded American would do: hire
a lawyer and sue. The Florida
Dept. of Education estimates that
the state would spend at least
$4.2 million a year defending
lawsuits against professors who
insisted on teaching what they
insisted on teaching, and not
what students insisted on being
taught.
This could have helped me in
Math 109-B.
"Excuse me, Dr. Know-It-All, I
know this 'Theory of
Mathematics' stuff is of great
interest to you, and yes, it's prob-
ably what the syllabus calls for.
But it's not what I want you to
teach.
"I'd like to see you get back to
Inchworm 101 ... you know ...
one and one are two, two and two
are four, four and four are eight,
eight and eight are sixteen."
I bet I could have made at least
a C in Inchworm 101.

What's next... "I Watched Terri Die" T-
shirts, $10 apiece or three for $25?
A junk mail vendor has advertised that it
will sell its mailing list of people who
responded to an E-mail plea from Terri
Schiavo's father for support in his efforts
to keep his daughter on life support.
The New York Times discovered that an
outfit called Response Unlimited has post-
ed on its web site an offer of "$150 a month
for 6,000 names and $500 a month for 4,000
E-mail addresses of people who responded
last month to an E-mail plea from Ms.
Schiavo's father," The Times reported.
"These compassionate pro-lifers donat-
ed toward Bob Schindler's legal battle to
keep Terri's estranged husband from
removing the feeding tube from Terri," the
web site boasts. "These individuals are
passionate about the way they value
human life, adamantly oppose euthanasia
and are pro-life in every sense of the
word!"
Yeah, but how will they feel when they
discover that their support of the
Schindlers put them on another sucker
list?
The Times article said that privacy
experts called the sale of names "legal and
even predictable, if ghoulish."
"I think it's amusing," the Times quoted
Robert Gellman, a privacy and informa-
tion policy consultant. "I think it's
absolutely classic America. Everything is
for sale in America, every type of personal
information."


CHAPEL HILL, N.C. I
know this is ancient history in a
country that moves so far,, so
fast, but I want you to know the
history of "Wilsons' Pasture."
In the 1870s, my grandfather,
Charles Cooper Wilson, home-
steaded the land between what
is now Orange Avenue, Clower
Street, Wilson Avenue, and
Stuart Street At that time he
built the house at 1115 South
Oak Ave, for his wife and chil-
dren, a "cracker house" if there
ever was one.
My grandmother told me sto-
ries of parrot-like birds in the
trees and hearing Florida pan-
thers scream in the darkness. She
woke up one night with a rac-
coon licking her toes.
When the house was renovat-
ed in 1947, we found his trea-
sure trove in one of the roof's
eaves, shiny, pretty things that
he had gathered in his nightly


Gary McCullough, a spokesman for the
Schindlers, said that Bob Schindler had
agreed to let Response Unlimited "rent out
the list" as part of the deal for sending out
his solicitation.
How you "rent out" a list is unclear to
us; it has been our experience that once we
get on a spammer's list, we're on it forev-
er.
Pamela Hennessy, another spokesman
for the Schindlers, called it "possibly the
most distasteful thing I have ever seen.
Everybody is making a buck off her."
Given the circus-like atmosphere at the
hospice where Terri Schiavo died, singling
out this one macabre action as "the most
distasteful" couldn't have been easy.
Asked for comment by The Times,
Response Unlimited, the. junk mail
provider, had no response.

raids.
What was done with the pas-
ture in those early days would
take a better historian than I to
discover, but as long as I can
remember, there were dairy
cows there and a red barn and a
calf barn and a silo and the
sweetest smells one can imagine.
It is heaven to lie in that grass on
a brisk and leaping Winter day
and watch the sun and the
clouds move across that open
sky.
My uncle, Milton D. Wilson,
gave that herd of Jerseys to the
county, and for many years their
milk went to underprivileged
children. Nye Jordan would
gather the bottles at morning
milking time and make his
deliveries early early as the
sun came up.
I can remember the day the
cows were moved to county
land. There was a cattle drive


going straight up Stuart Street to
the east.
This is all to say that that land
has history and it is Wilson his-
tory and it is Bartow history
from its earliest days. So this is a
letter asking that the park be
named for the Wilsons who
went before us, so many of them
have given so much to our home
town.
Whatever you name the park,
try to go there as often as you
can to watch the sun go down. I
used to watch it from my back
steps and it gave me peace.
It will give you peace, too.
LAURA VIRGINIA WILSON

(Editor's note: The recreation
advisory board is soliciting sugges-
tions from the public on naming the
park that will be developed on the
property just east of the Bartow
High School campus. It is this par-
cel that Ms. Wilson writes about.)


I don't remember the first per-
son that called me Four Eyes, but
I do remember the last. It was at
the Sigma Chi house at the
University of Florida where I had
been invited by my future hus-
band to attend some big event or
other.
I made a really knockout for-
mal for the occasion. It had about
a zillion yards of red organdy in it
and a bouffant skirt in three tiers.
I made a red taffeta strapless slip
to wear under it. When I went
into the living room wearing that
slip and asked my mother to
please pin up the hem, my father
rose out of his chair where he had
been reading the paper and said


in righteous indignation, "You're
not leaving the house in that!" I
told him I wasn't leaving without
it because it was my slip. I was
quite pleased with it when every-
thing was finished.
I don't remember much about
the rest of the party, except that I
threw the president of the frater-
nity over in a bed of purple petu-
nias with the sprinkler watering
them. I was going down a gravel
path from the fraternity house to
the party house and he was com-
ing up the path toward me.
He said, "Hello, Four Eyes," as
though that was a new thought. I
wasn't even mad at him, but
thought a grown man would


4 10 k %
.1 N'~ 8 ~I
eep1~ ~ ~
~ k~'antw~


have better manners, so I threw
him over in the petunias with a
judo move that I learned when I
worked for the FBI.
I didn't wait to see what the
sprinkler and petunias had done
to him, and went on down the
path. I imagine the petunias
made an interesting print on his
white dinner jacket.
My fiance, Ed Sims saw the
whole thing and said, "Do you
know who that was?" I didn't, of
course. Turned out that he was
the president of the fraternity.
That was just another thing
that young man learned at the
University of Florida.
I bet he never again called any-

Whom Does Killebrew Represent?


NASHVILLE, TENN. Re: Mr.
Sam Killebrew's letter to the editor,
"Committee Wants Petitions
Thrown Out."
I am a Polk County indigent citi-
zen who lives on Social Security dis-
ability assistance. Temporarily, I live
with relatives in Tennessee because
of the lack of affordable public hous-
ing in Polk County.
I am an advocate for the initiative
and referenda process. I am a past
Home Rule Charter Committee vol-
unteer. I respect Polk County
Supervisor of Elections Lori
Edwards, a public official recently
criticized in a grand jury present-
ment. I am a friend of Home Rule
Charter Committee Chm. Dewey
Smith, a person recently indicted by
the same grand jury. I am an
uncalled witness to some of the
events reported in the grand jury
presentment. I represent no one but
myself.
Mr. Killebrew, however, wrote in
terms of "our" and "we," but he did


not write who "our" and "we" are.
Who is he and what are his interests
in suing Ms. Edwards and Mr.
Smith?
What are the names of those who
contribute to Citizens for Effective
Government? What are their politi-
cal, social, banking and judicial con-
nections? What is their real purpose
and why?
Mr. Killebrew claims to represent
himself and others in a defense of a
lawsuit against a public official and
a citizen, both of whom have distin-
guished themselves as champions of
the average citizen.
After reading Mr. Killebrew's let-
ter several times, I am left wonder-
ing. Is Mr. Killebrew a self-appoint-
ed watchdog whose purpose it is to
make sure that politicians perform
their duties?
Why has Mr. Killebrew only gone
after the elections supervisor, whose
only crime, has been her efforts to
perform her duties?
If Mr. Killebrew is a public


watchdog, then why did he not go
after both the state attorney and the
sheriff in this matter, both of whom
have obvious conflicts of interests?
Regarding the grand jury, why did
he not object to the selection of wit-
nesses, almost all of whom were
either employed by county govern-
ment or paid petition gatherers?
Why weie other witnesses not
called to testify, such as those indi-
viduals who volunteered their time
to the petition drive and other
experts whose testimonies might
have changed how the grand jurors
viewed this entire matter?
Is it just a coincidence that Mr.
Killebrew asked the court to stop the
petition counting process at a point
in time when ii appeared that Mr.
Smith's petition efforts were going
to prevail?
Is he actually concerned about
the elections supervisor upholding
the law as he interprets it, or is he
suing in an effort to keep her from
validating petitions that will result


in important citizens' initiatives
being placed on the ballot? These
initiatives would give the citizens
the opportunity to decide certain
important issues for themselves.
These issues are the manner in
Which county constitutional officers
perform their duties, their terms of
office, and their pay. The result of an
initiative-oriented election in favor
of the citizens would mean that
these politicians would have to be
doubly answerable. They would be
accountable to both a county man-
ager and the people. They would be
term limited, and they would have
their pay cut in half.
Who is Mr. Killebrew? What is
his real purpose? Surely there can-
not be more than a handful of peo-
ple standing with him. Who are
they, and why are they doing these
things?

edited for length.)


one "Four Eyes."
What brought this to mind is
that I am going to pick up my
new glasses that should be ready
this week. I now have glasses for
everything, or will when I pick
them up. Somehow, contacts
don't interest me. I now have
walking around glasses, reading
glasses, computer glasses, and
glasses that will turn dark when I
go out to the mail box.
I wonder whatever happened
to the fellow I threw over into the
petunias.
I wonder if he ever thinks of
me?

Marian Clyatt, her son, John,
and I attended the Horizon Land
Trust Company annual dinner at
Bok Tower Gardens last week in
Lake Wales.
This was truly a historical ad-
venture.
After the delightful meal, an
auction was held in behalf of the
company.
Marty Higgenbothom, the.
auctioneer, was, as always, out-
standing in his presentations.
Art was the subject of the auc-
tion. Robert Butler, the popular
and renowned artist of Polk
County, who featured Florida's
beautiful outdoor scenes was fea-
tured. Other artists included
were Butlers daughters, Aletha
and Doreen, and his son, Sam,
and Tom Freeman, Johnny Sto-
vall, Willie Reagon and Diane
Pierce.
The prices ranged from $300
to $950. It was a successful auc-
tion.
The highlight of the evening


was guest speaker Canter
Brown, Jr. Brown is a Fort Me-
ade native and has written and
coauthored around eight books.
He introduced his latest book
and signed copies. The book is
called "None Can Have Richer
Memories, Polk County, Florida,
1940-2000."
His speech was well received
by all those present. He told of
the beauty of Polk County and
how it should be preserved.
Brown is a gifted speaker, and
the words just flowed in beauti-
ful descriptions.
He is a number one historian
in the state, and we are all so
proud of all his accomplish-
ments.
I have already read his book,
and it is outstanding. It is filled
with historical facts of Polk
County. The book offers pictures
throughout, and the first picture
shows an interview of my
mother, Mrs. E.F. Mitchell, by
Caroline Girtman for the Polk
County Historical Museum Ar-


chives, what a surprise and
honor for me.
My brother Lorry Mitchell,
and I are also'in the picture. I
was thrilled out of my skin at
seeing that picture.
I recommend this book for
everyone to read as it will bring
back many memories to you that
existed in the years between
1940-2000.
Fort Meade is mentioned on a
number of pages featuring indi-
viduals, families, landmarks,
such as Sand Mountain and the
Skeleton Hotel. You will find it
very interesting.
Barbara, Brown's wife, played
a big part in the research for the
newest book.
We had many thanks for the
Easter Baskets from the "90
Year Club" members. We wish
them many more birthdays.
The beautification committee
for the bandstand yard is work-
ing diligently on the plans for
more lovely decorations. It is go-
ing to be beautiful.

Public hearings will be held
by the Bartow city commission
tonight on ordinances annexing
four parcels of property into the
city limits and designating one of
the parcels for "low density resi-
dential" development.
The largest parcel is 324.6
acres, part of which is the south
end of the planned Silver Com-
panies development" on U.S.
Highway 98 on the north side of
Bartow. Two smaller parcels are
on E.F. Griffin Road, and one is
near Peace River Estates. A
hearing assigning the "low den-
sity residential" (up to six houses
per acre) category to one of the
parcels on E.F. Griffin Road will
be held.

doctors and employees have all
the sophisticated equipment to
provide for the highest level of
medical care," Davis said.
"We started fresh today
(Friday). All our billing and col-
lecting efforts will apply to
patients who were in the hospi-
tal from 12:01 a.m. today on."
Bartow RMC will maintain a
close working relationship with
Heart of Florida, but will answer
to an HMA vice-president, Davis
said.
He plans to expand Bartow's
56-bed capacity "as we grow our
volume to meet the growing
needs of the community."
Included with the hospital
sale were the two medical office
buildings on the hospital cam-
pus. Davis is still evaluating the
need for more such buildings in
the future.
The hospital will have a local
"advisory board," which at least
initially will be the Bartow
Community Healthcare
Foundation appointees, com-
monly referred to as "the old
BMH board" that oversaw opera-
tions of the hospital when it was
a community-owned, non-profit
institution.
Davis is impressed by the wel-
come he has received in Bartow.

benches and trash receptacles
will enhance the pedestrian
environment.
Two to four live oaks will be
planted in most blocks, generally
near the corners, with smaller
shumard oaks in the middle of
the blocks.
Wheelchair ramps will be
built at every corner.
There will be power outlets at
every corner for public address
systems and food vendors, and
smaller receptacles at trees to
allow merchants to display twin-
kle lights.
Brick pavers will be used in
the sidewalks and to define
crosswalks across Main Street.
Kevin Coughlin of PBS&J
said that work will begin with
two lanes of traffic channeled to
the north side of Main Street
while work is done on the south
side. In the second phase, the
traffic will be channeled to the
south side of the street while
work is done on the north side.
A milling machine will grind
away the top two inches of
asphalt, and the street will be
repaved.
That work will be done at
night, he said. The milling will
take about three weeks.
The builder will close two


"This is my fourth hospital
with HMA. I've been honored by
the welcome all of us have
received here.
"We are looking forward to
working with the physicians,
employees and community mem-
bers."
Last year, HMA and LifePoint
entered into negotiations to
swap ownership of BMH and
another HMA hospital. Those
negotiations were terminated,
but HMA said it would continue
negotiating to buy the Bartow
hospital.
Although the deal had been
common knowledge for the past
few weeks, no announcement
was made until April 1, the date
when the sale became effective.
Terms of the sale were not
revealed.
In a press release issued from
HMA's headquarters in Naples,
Fla., Joseph V. Vumbacco,
HMA's president and chief exec-
utive officer said:
"We are very pleased to wel-
come Bartow Memorial Hospital
into HMA's expanding family of
non-urban hospitals, and we are
eager to begin serving the health
care needs of this growing com-
munity. With the growth that is
taking place in non-urban and
rural communities throughout
Florida, we believe hospital ser-
vices will be in greater demand,
and HMA is poised to be the


Main Street

intersections at a time to install
the brick crosswalks. Each clo-
sure is expected to last for two to
two-and-a-half weeks. Traffic
will be diverted to the two
streets that run parallel to Main
Street: Davidson on the north
and Summerlin on the south.
Sam Allen, on-site construc-
tion manager for the contractor,
said the firm has extensive expe-
rience in streetscape projects.
"We're going to need your
help," he told the audience, par-
ticularly on ways to maintain
access to businesses. For exam-
ple, he said, at businesses with
double doors, access may be kept
open for one side at a time.
Work will begin at Main
Street and Broadway, and will
move east, he said.
Mike Shain, superintendent
for the contractor, assured the
audience: "I have to work with
you; we're going to do our best."
Work will begin on Monday
with surveyors marking the loca-
tion of underground utilities,
using spray" cans of colored
paint, he said.
While the project is scheduled
to take eight months, most
downtown disruption will be
over a six-month period.
Each given block will be dis-
rupted for about three or four
weeks, merchants were told.


health care provider of choice in
communities like Bartow."
With the purchase of Bartow
Memorial Hospital, HMA now
operates 17 hospitals in Florida,
and has completed five acquisi-
tions in fiscal year 2005, achiev-
ing its fiscal year objective to
acquire between four and six
hospitals, Vumbacco said.
Bartow Memorial Hospital's
annual net revenue is approxi-
mately $33 million, he said.
HMA operates non-urban
general acute care hospitals in
communities throughout the
United States. It has generated
16 years of uninterrupted oper-
ating earnings growth and oper-
ates 57 hospitals in 16 states.
with approximately 8,259
licensed beds, the press release
said.
In LifePoint's press release
announcing the sale, issued from
its headquarters in Brentwood,
Tenn., Kenneth C. Donahey,
president and CEO, said, "We
are pleased to complete the sale
of' Bartow Memorial Hospital,
and we are confident that the
hospital, its staff, and the resi-
dents of Bartow and the sur-
rounding communities will be
well served by HMA."
LifePoint operates 30 hospi-
tals in non-urban communities,
and is affiliated with approxi-
mately 9,900 employees.


In a question-and-answer ses-
sion, speakers said:
Main Street drainage will
be improved, but "it won't be per-
fect." The street will be repaved
at the present grade, but side-
walks and curbs will be raised in
some areas to improve drainage.
There is no drainage work
planned to reduce flooding on
Summerlin Street, but improv-
ing drainage on Main Street
should relieve problems on
Summerlin.
Access of some sort to every
store will be maintained "most of
the time."
The Nelson firm has a."no
excuses" contract, and will be
paid ,$5,000 a day for each day
ahead of Nov. 5 that it completes
the work, or will pay a fine of
$2,000 a day for each day that it
is late.
Trees planted on Main will
be 18 to 25 feet high, and limbs
will be trimmed at least six to
eight feet above the sidewalk.
The oaks should be sturdy
enough to withstand hurricane
winds, even before they firmly
take root.
Landscaping will come
toward the end of the project.


Public hearings are required
on all ordinances when they are
considered on second (final)
reading.
Also coming up for a public
hearing is an ordinance author-
izing the city to buy from Bartow
Municipal Airport a 7.58-acre
tract of land for use by the elec-
tric department. The price is
$840,000. The property is the
former Hi-Way, Inc., industrial
plant.
Ordinances correcting zoning
map errors on the Precisionaire
plant and the Palm Cemetery
will be considered on first read-
ing. The Precisionaire property
will be rezoned from institu-
tional to industrial, and the
cemetery will be rezoned from
industrial to institutional.
The commission will meet at 5
o'clock this afternoon at city hall
for a work session, and will re-
convene at .6:30 for its regular
business meeting.
Other items on the agenda:

Bartow Overpowers Competition

At Home Weightlifting Meet


By HEATHER JAEKEL
BHS Sports Information
Diiector/Teacher

Lifters from area high schools
converged on the campus of
Bartow High School, the site of a
weightlifting meet on Wednesday,
March 31.
Teams from all over the county
showed their stuff in an exciting
competition, filled with great
sportsmanship and truly amazing
talent.
Weightlifting is a sport that is
rich in tradition and success at
Bartow High School.
Yellow Jacket athletes were
urged to do their best by Head
Coach.Danny Williams, Assistant
Coach Shawn Killets and
Assistant Coach Bobby
McGlohorn. Every time there was
a student preparing to lift the
coaches would gather around and
yell to motivate and pump up
their athletes.
The atmosphere is unlike any
other individual sport.
Weightlifting is more like a team
sport because all the weightlifters
and coaches rally around the
lifter to encourage them:
There were six schools that
participated: Bartow (team score
81), Hardee (team score 43),
Sebring (team score 30), Fort
Meade (team score 27), Lake
Wales (team score 24) and
Vanguard (team 'score 6).
Bartow High School blew away
their competition with very
strong performances from its stu-
dent athletes.
Wilfredo Zabala placed first
and Alberto Mendez placed sec-
ond in the 119 class. Zabala lifted
a total of 125 pounds more than
anyone in his class. His bench
press was 220 and his clean and
jerk was 205.. The lower weight
classes, are especially amazing
due to the proportion of the
weight they lift to their own body
weight.
Todd Sims placed first and
Josh Smith placed fifth in the 139
class. Sims' bench press was an
impressive 280 pounds and his
clean and jerk was 225 pounds..
T.J. Jackson and Tim
Daughtry placed second and third
in the 154 class.
Brandon Bridges placed first
and Lamar Reese placed second
in the 169 class. Bridges tied with
Reese with a bench press of 295,
but pulled out first place with his
275 pound clean and jerk.
Wallace Bell placed first and,
Mike Siebert placed sixth in the
183 class. Bell outscored his

BIG Dividends
'. .


nearest opponent by 65 pounds.
He had an incredible bench press
of 360 and had a 275 clean and
jerk. Geno Johnson placed first
and Albert Rodriguez placed sec-
ond in the 199 class. Johnson
dominated his class by lifting a
total of 105 pounds more than his
nearest competitor.
Steven Rodriguez,placed first
and Jose Bristol placed second in
the 238 class. Rodriguez had a
very strong performance with a
300 pound bench press and a 255
pound clean and jerk that placed
him first.


Brad Hiers placed first in the
heavyweight class. Brad Hiers
had an impressive performance
with a 315 bench press and a 245
clean and jerk.
This is Williams first year as
the Head Coach. He was the
assistant coach for the previous
two years. Coach Williams feels
strongly that the weightlifters
have an excellent opportunity to
do well at Sectionals and State.
In the meantime, the Jacket
wrestlers are preparing for sec-
tional and state competitions in
the coming months.

Brad Hiers took first place in the heavyweight division at the BHS

team was Lakeland High School
and that's how they suffered
their only loss.
The team is young. They only
have one senior, two juniors, and
rest of the team are sophomores.
The girls say they believe they
are really good but they couldn't
prove it because the county tour-
nament was canceled.
Hopefully the girls will make
up for it in the district tourna-
ment, since the ladies are de-
fending district champions. How
it looks now, the ladies have an
excellent chance of become back-
to-back district champs.
The greatest thing about the
team is that they get along well
and they are experienced even
though they're young.
"The girls are easy to coach
they are well discipline and re-
spectful. Dedicated to work all

Coach Kathy Lewis.
The team will be in action to-
day as they play Lakeland Chris-
tian at home.

remain at one.
In the second half, co-captain
Danny Leckie scored what would
be the winning goal.
In very wet conditions, team
captains Leo Davila and Tom
Bevis did their part defensively,
helping their keepers, maintain
the slim lead for a 2-1 victory and
the tournament championship.
"This was great," said Coach
Rick Davila. "I've been coaching
many of these boys since they
were five years old. They play
really hard."

'Get REAL!' Program Kicks

Off in Florida State Parks


A dozen students were joined
by Department of Environmen-
tal Protection Secretary Colleen
M. Castille at Myakka River
State Park to launch "Get REAL!
in Florida State Parks," a new
program to expand recreational
and educational opportunities in
Florida's 158 state parks.
Taking students from an ur-
ban environment to a natural
Florida setting, "Get REAL!"
brought the teenagers from
North Miami Beach to primitive
camp at the popular South Flor-
ida park during their spring
break.
"Florida State Parks offer rec-
reational and educational oppor-
tunities in some of Florida's
most unique landscapes," Cas-
.tille said.
"'Get REAL!' shares the won-
ders of Florida's state parks with
children and adults, forming life-
time advocates for land conser-
vation, outdoor recreation and
environmental protection."
The 12 students camped at
Myakka River State Park this
week, part of the first "Get
REAL!" partnership between
-Florida State -Parks and the
North Miami Beach Parks and
Recreation Department. In
preparation for their spring
:break trip, the students learned
primitive camping skills last
:month at Oleta River State


Park.
During their stay at Myakka
River, the students put many of
their newly-acquired skills to the
test with activities including
campfire cooking, astronomy,
fishing, Everglades study, tent
breakdown and post-camp clean-
up.
Castille, Florida State Parks
Director Mike Bullock, Dr. Mary
Jelks and City of North Miami
Beach Parks and Recreation De-
partment Deputy Director Jerry
Smith joined the students along
the Myakka River for an envi-
ronmental education program
about Florida's birds of prey,
learning about the habitats,
feeding patterns and anatomy of
owls, hawks and vultures.
"Get REAL!," which stands for
"Recreational and Environmen-
tal Adventures in Learning," fo-
cuses on using Florida State
Parks as "classrooms without
walls." The initiative builds on
the parks' broad multicultural,
educational and recreational pro-
grams to enrich learning and in-
tegrate the use'of state parks
with local community programs.
"Get REAL!" will provide pro-
grams for school-aged children,
seniors and economically disad-
vantaged individuals to boost in-
terest and participation in out-
door recreation.


Use Caution When Signing

Up For Internet Phones


SConsumers who are consider-
ing buying Internet-based tele-
phone services should be aware
that not all such services provide
access to the 9-1-1 network.
SSometimes 9-1-1 service is
provided but is not the full serv-
ice consumers are used to receiv-
ing via regular wireline tele-
phones.
When a person calls 9-1-1
from a wireline telephone, emer-
gency service providers auto-
matically know the caller's loca-
tion and can direct emergency
personnel to that location even if
the caller is not able to provide
an address.
Persons considering an Inter-
net-based service for his/her
household should ask whether
the offer includes 9-1-1 service
and if they will be connected to


the local 9-1-1 system network.
If the advertising, whether in
store brochures, media print, on-
line, or oral communications, is
silent on this issue, it is likely
that 9-1-1 is not being provided.
If the provider claims to pro-
vide 9-1-1 service, buyers should
ask whether 9-1-1 calls will be
routed to the traditional 9-1-1
network.
If yes, then the service is.just
like traditional, telephone serv-
ice.
If the provider makes it vol-
untary or mandatory to sign up
for 9-1-1 service, buyers may be
required to go on line and enter
their name and address so they
can be located in an emergency.
It will be important that the
buyer enter the information ac-
curately and keep it up to date.


A new program will allow
public access to building files on
the Internet. It was created by
Polk County Records Manage-
ment, under the Support Serv-
ices Group, in conjunction with
the IT Web Team and Image
One, Inc.
SThe software allows citizens,
builders, and developers to view
and print the building files at no
charge, directly from their own
computer.


These building files include
permit files, drawings (large
size), drawing attachments
(structural and energy calcula-
tions and small drawings), and
renewal contractor licenses.
To access the files, log on to
the Polk County webpage at
www.polk-county.net. Then click
on "County Offices," and scroll
down to "Records Management."
Next, click on "Building and
Land Development."


The sound of a kiss is not so loud as that of a cannon, but its echo

Why Is It?

A person wakes up after sleeping

bathes in an ADVERTISED shower,
shaves with an ADVERTISED razor,
brushes his or her teeth with ADVERTISED tooth-

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.

From The University of
Florida

Carloads of young people are
dusting off the flip-flops, icing
down the beer and heading to
warmer climes this month foi
the annual ritual of alcohol-fu-
eled partying known as Spring
Break. The participants include
many college and high school
students under the drinking age
who all too often are able to pur-
chase alcoholic beverages ille-
gally.
Now new research shows law
enforcement authorities trying
to shut off the tap might be wise
to step up the patrols year-
round, not just in the next few
weeks, report University of Flor-
ida and University of Minnesota
researchers in the current issue
of the journal Addiction.
Findings from a five-year na-
tional study they conducted re-
veal that police checks of estab-
lishments that sell alcohol
strongly deter sales to minors,
and are even more effective
when repeated as often as every
three months.
The researchers also found
that these checks, in which an
underage buyer attempts to pur-
chase. alcohol without showing
identification and violators are
cited, work far better than pro-
grams that train staff at bars
and restaurants to identify and
refuse service to minors.
"We found that enforcement
has significant effects, but just
like enforcement against any of-
fense, you can't just do it once
and think it solves everything,"
said Alexander C. Wagenaar,
Ph.D., a professor of epidemiol-
ogy and health policy research at
UF's College of Medicine. "We
have to create an ongoing per-
ception on the part of the man-
agers and owners of these estab-
lishments that they have a de-
cent chance of getting caught if
they sell to teenagers."
The study was conducted
against a backdrop of concern
about the use of alcohol by young
people on college campuses and
elsewhere. Alcohol consumption,
often to the point of intoxication,
plays a role in a range of nega-
tive health consequences, in-
cluding car crashes, risky sex,
assaults, recreational injuries,
suicide and alcohol dependence.
"We're looking at a behavior
that is a leading cause of death
among teenagers and young
adults," Wagenaar said.
"All major causes of death and


injury among teens have a sub-
stantial proportion that involve
alcohol. So if you narrow down
that pipeline flow of alcohol to
youth, and attenuate their
drinking behavior, the health
benefits are large."
In their study, funded by the
National Institute on Alcohol
Abuse and Alcoholism, Wage-
naar and his colleagues evalu-
ated two key strategies used to
limit the sale of alcohol to mi-
nors one based on deterrence,
the other on compliance.
These techniques have been
studied before but never in such
a controlled way nor over so long
a period as in this project, ac-
cording to the authors.
The study involved 942 estab-
lishments that sold alcohol in 20
Midwestern cities. They included
locations where alcohol drinks
were served on the premises -
bars, restaurants and bowling
alleys as well as "off-premise"
sales establishments such as liq-
uor, grocery and convenience
stores.
Every two weeks, these firms
were visited by youthful-looking
individuals who attempted to
purchase alcohol without provid-
ing proof of age.
The purchasers were actually
21 or older, but appeared to be
younger, as judged by members
of a panel working with the
authors.
Over the course of the study,
such purchase attempts were
made 7,242 times and alcohol:
was sold to the pseudo-underage
customer in about one out of five
encounters.
Wagenaar likened this activ-
ity to continually "taking the
temperature of the community"
with respect to its propensity to
sell alcohol to minors.
While these attempted pur-
chases continued, 959 enforce-
ment checks were conducted in-
dependently by state or local al-
cohol enforcement authorities.
By obtaining reports of these ac-
tivities, the researchers could
chart their deterrent effect over
time via follow-up attempts to
purchase at the same establish-
ments.
Law enforcement checks on
establishments selling alcohol
for off-premise consumption pro-
duced an immediate 17 percent
decrease in the subsequent like-
lihood of their selling to minors,
said Wagenaar and his col-
leagues, Traci L. Toomey, Ph.D.,
and Darin J. Erickson, Ph.D., of

the University of Minnesota.
That reduction dissipated
over time, from 11 percent two
weeks after a check to three per-
cent after two months.
Most of the residual effect dis-
appeared after three months.
A 17 percent decrease is "a
substantial effect" for one check,
said Wagenaar, noting that
many communities perform en-
forcement checks only once a
year or less.
Checks of on-premise estab-
lishments yielded even better re-
sults, with a 17 percent decrease
immediately afterward, dimin-
ishing to 14 percent at two
weeks and f1 percent at two
months.
"This study underscores the
potential for enforcement of un-
derage alcohol sales laws to re-
duce underage access to alco-
hol," said Ralph Hingson, Sc.D.,
director of the division of epide-
miology and prevention research,
at the National, Institute on Al-
cohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
On the compliance side, about
a third of the intervention estab-
lishments voluntarily underwent
a formal training program in al-
cohol risk management at the
outset of the study. Yet research-
ers found that training had vir-
tually no effect on the likelihood
of illegal alcohol sales to youth.
"Although it can be part of a
comprehensive approach, just
training the staff that serve alco-
hol without an active enforce-
ment effort is not effective,"
Wagenaar said.
The researchers looked at
other influences on an establish-
ment's propensity to sell alcohol.
They included media reports
of enforcement checks and word-
of-mouth communication be-
tween businesses.
The study was carried out
during a national downward
trend in the tendency of alcohol
establishments to sell to under-
age youth. In the early '90s, the
rate was 50 percent to 80 per-
cent, Wagenaar said. In the
study just completed, it was
roughly 20 percent.
"Communities have stepped
up enforcement," he said. "There
is much more carding going on
now than there was in the 1980s
and 1990s. There has been sub-
stantial progress, but most com-
munities still pay way too little
attention to enforcing the law
against sales of alcohol to mi-
nors."
