A proposal to build an 8.30-car
parking garage east of the Polk
County administration building
and across the street from the
court house drew an enthusiastic
response from Bartow's
Community Redevelopment
Agency.
All that is needed make it hap-
pen is $7 million to $10 million.
The CRA hopes that
Congressman Adam Putnam can
-obtain a federal economic stimu-
lus grant.
Pat Steed of the consulting
firm of Post, Buckley, Schuh and
Jernigan presented a parking
study that recommended that the
new parking garage be built in
two phases on the site of the
parking lot between the county


administration building and the
sheriff's office operations center.
At present, there are 1,430 off-
street parking spaces for county
employees, jurors, and visitors to
,the county governmental com-
plex, the report said.
The report proposes that a
560-car, three-story parking
garage be built in Phase 1, with
expansion to 270 spaces in Phase
Ii.
"Trhe county knows it has a
serious shortfall in parking," Ms.
Steed said. What is not known is
where the county commission
would put that shortfall on a list
of 17 unfunded needs that were
presented at a county commis-
sion retreat earlier this year.
It would take 10 years for the


garage "to start paying for itself,"'
both construction costs and oper-
ating expense, she said.
The key to making the garage
a financial success is to have a
mix of spaces rented to county
employees by the month prob-
ably at $50 a month and
spaces rented to visitors by the
hour, she said. The hourly
rentals are projected to produced
lot more revenue than the
monthly rentals, -she said.
She predicted that the month-
ly rentals at $50 a month would
go quickly.
To be financially feasible, the
garage should be located in the
most convenient location, to
make it more desirable than the
free parking in the county's park-


ing lots, she said. It is essential
that it be built west of Broadway,
she added.
CRA Board Member Terry
Hunter moved to accept the
report, adding that he thought it
made more sense to build both
phases at once.
"I think we should continue to
be interested in it," he said.
His motion passed unani-
mously, with other board memr
bers agreeing that the entire
structure should be built at once.
The next step will be to see
how interested the city and coun-
ty commissions are in pursuing
the project ... and to rind money
to pay for it.

Thanks to the construction of
portable classrooms and new
schools, Poll; County was able to
get within the parameters of the
state class size amendment, but
with growth still on the upswing,
there ~are no guarantees that will
happen next year. 1
That was the Superintendent


Dr. Gail McKinzie and the school
board's rationale on Tuesday
when they voted against institut-
ing a universal voluntary pre-
kindergarten (VPK) program free
of charge to parents.
"For one year we may be able
to do this program," said School
Board Member Frank O'Reilly.
"W~e can do it and jam the little
children in the classrooms and
then tell them next year to go


away.11
The author of the proposal,
Mattie Friedt, the senior coordi-
nator for child care services, said
in order for the program to be
funded, the district must sign off
on class size compliance'.
"Trhe district met it this year,
but there are no assurances
beyond '052'06," she said.
Originally, the state
Department of Education (DOE)
requiired a school to show they
'Could meet the class silze require-'
ments through 2010, but this
year that was lifted. Now schools
only have to meet it on a year-by-
year basis, much to the dismay of
O'Reilly.
"Trhis is not fair to the children
of the state of Florida," he said.
"Trhe DOE is very negligent to go
and throw, this out there to a
school system with out a guaran-
tee for next year.
"Trhen when this falls apart,
(the DOE) will say 'Oh well, it
was the school's fault."'"
In addition, the state only
would have covered .540 hours of


class time per student, equivalent
to 180 half-day, sessid~ns. The.-pro-
posal called for a y ear df V,111`day
classes, or 1,080 class hours. In
order to cover this, the plan asked
parents of students'who did not
qualify for the school. readiness
program (similar criteria to the
free and reduced lunch,program)
to pay for the first 90 days of class
time, while the next 90 would be
free to them as, space permit. _
The plan could have'shuit out
parents who did not qualify for
school readiness.
This was the issue O'Reilly
said was not in the spirit of what
voters asked for'- when they
approved an early learning pro-
gram for 4-year-olds in 2002.
"We will not take a seco nd-
class option," he said. "If we are
going to do this, let's have a good
one. This is far from a first class
one."
O'Reilly said that Mrs. Frie~dt
was "the last per-ion I wantedto

SBartow police and Polk
County Sheriff deputies teamed
ujp Monday night to catch a
Winter Haven man who allegedly
siole merchandise from Wal-
M~art, then escaped from police.
According to police, 42-year-
ol& Edward Jay Odom entered
tlje Wal-Mart on East Van Fleet
Drive with two Duracell cam-
c~rder batteries and a lithium,
bbhttery, which activated the
store's security alarm's, attract-
inlg the attention of one of the
store's loss prevention officers.
O dom presented the batteries,
to the door greeter, who placed
pink return stickers on the items.
O~dom then walked to the grocery
di~ipartment, removed some bone-
Wss barbecue chicken wings from
a ,helf, and began eating them as
he` walked toward the tool section
of: the store.
-Once there, he removed a pink
sticker~from one of the batteries
and affixed. the sticker toa
Sianley brand tool. set valued at
$1.27.44, placed the remaining
b~tterie~s and. chicken bag. on a
shelf, and excited the. store with
the tool set, without paying for
the merchandise.
When he got outside, Odom
was confronted by two loss pre-
vention officers. He then dropped
the tool set and told the officers
to. "just take the merchandise."
The officers told Odom that he
was being detained, and Odom
removed- his shoes and tried to
wl Both o ffcers attempted to


restrain Odom, and a struggle
ensued. Three unidentified, peo-
ple jumped in and helped the offi-
cers restrain Odom, and the
police were called.
-When Bartow Police K-9
Officer Michelle Smith respond-
ed to the scene, Odom identified
himself as Jay Edward Odom
and gave a false Soial Security
number, which came back' as
belonging to a female.
While speaking with Odomn
and the loss prevention, officers,
Officer Smith noticed small cuts
and abrasions on' each of them
and offered to get them medical
attention, which they all refused.
After leaving the scene, how-
ever, Odom asked to be taken to
the hospital. He was taken to
Bartow Regional Medical Center,
where he was treated and
released.
When Officer Smith attempt-
ed to handcuff him and take him
back into custody, Odom pushed
her on the chest, knocking her
down, and fled through the park-
ing lot into a wooded area.
Officer Smith deployed K-9
Vegas, .who located Odom in a
swampy area,'which was too
deep for the K-9 to enter. The
sheriff's office was then, called to
assist in the chase with their air
unit.
Odom was located about an
hour later on the Wvest side of the
swamp, where K-9 Deputy C.
Romano responded with K-9
Reno and Bartow Police Officer
Bryan Dorman.,
Odom ignored, commands to
give himself up, and was appre-
'hended by. the. K-9. Odom still


refused to follow commands by
the officers to show his hands,
and while Officer Dorman
attempted to handcuff him, both
fell to the. ground', injuring the
officer's elbow.
Odom wNas taken back to the
hospital for treatment, of a K-9
bite to one of his arms, and was
later booked into the Polk County
Jail.
Officer Dorman also was
treated and released for his
injury.,
Odom faces charges of escape,
resisting'an officer with violence,
battery on a law enforcement
officer, resisting a merchant, giv-
ing false information to law
enforcement, petit theft, and
resisting an officer without vio-
lence.
He is being held without bonr


Three children were treated
for minor injuries after their
school bus was struck by a car
Monday afternoon at the inter-
section of East Laurel Street and
Sixth Avenlue in Bartow.
According to Bartow Police
Officer Johnny Zorn, the bus, dri-
ven by Mary Lou Wagner Moyer,
61, of Fort Meade, was slowly
traveling west on Laurel. A 1987
Toyota, driven by Kristy DeAnna
Fason, 24, of Bartow, was headed
north on Sixth, stopped at the
intersection, then turned right
onto East Laurel, hitting the bus
on the left front end.
Police determined that Fason
crossed the center line, and also


discovered that the temporary
tag on the Toyota appeared to b(
altered.
Three children, Sierri
Richardson, 10; Tate Seger, 10
and Nicholas Britt, 4, all o

Memorial Hospital for minor:
injuries. Six other children on th(

FM Garden Club Members Visit

Hollis Gardens In Lakeland


A tour of Hollis Gardens was
a highlight of the April 27 meet-
ing of the Fort Meade Garden
Club.
The brief meeting was called
to order by President Bettye
:Barnett.
Caroline Loadholtes pre-
sented the devotional and Alice
Spieth led the club in the Pledge
of Allegiance.
Minutes of the previous meet-
ing were read and approved and
Treasurer' Eunice Manley re-
ported a balance of $339.
A discussion followed concern-
ing the galardia seedlings that
are to be part 'of the "Blanket
Polk County With Flowers" pro-
gram.
June Shirley announced that
her husband, Bob, hopes that the


plants will be large enough to
distribute to members by the
May meeting.
It is the hope of the Garden
Club that plants also may be
given to Fort Meade area schools
and the City of Fort Meade in
the future.'
The plants produce large and
showy daisy-like flowers that
bloom spring and summer.
The nominating committee
submitted its slate of officers for
the year 2005-2006: President -
Bettye Barnett, First Vice-presi-
dent Marian Clyatt, Second
Vice-president Alice Speith,
Recording Secretary Nancy
Kitchings, Corresponding Secre-
tary June Shirley and Ruby
Moody, Treasurer Eunice
Manley, Chaplain Lenora Cul-


pepper, Sunshine Marilyn
Gunter. The slate was elected by
unanimous decision.
Installation of officers will
take place at the May luncheon.
The meeting was adjourned
as nine members and two guests
traveled to Hollis Gardens in
Lakeland.
The formal gardens are lo-
cated on 1.2 acres within the his-
toric Lake Mirror Park and con-
tain more than 10,000 flowers,
ornamental shrubs and shade
trees.
Members viewed a brilliant
display of seasonal colors in the
flower beds, and were given cut-
tings of herbs and other vegeta-
tion to take home to their own
gardens.
Interspersed throughout the
gardens and around the lake are
exhibits from the J. Seward
Johnson Collection.
Twenty of these life-size, real-
istic cast bronze figures, depict-
ing ordinary people performing
everyday tasks have been on dis-
play since January.
This charming collection of
sculptures can be seen through
April.
After the guided tour through
the beautiful gardens, members
ate lunch at the Garden Bistro
at tables overlooking Lake Mir-
ror.
Bettye Barnett will hold the
spring luncheon at Peace River
Country Club on May 25.
S Members may pay their dues
for 2005-2006 at this meeting.

Every Tuesday morning from
September through August, the
Bartow Public Library's Crafty
Kids program has brought art
and fun to children ages 3 to 5.
Carrie Wharton, children's li-
brarian at the library, presents
stories during the event, and
brings the characters to life
through dramatic reading and
interactive songs.
Following the stories, the chil-
dren gather to make something
to take home.
"Sometimes we get messy,"
Ms. Wharton said. "Parents
know if they come in and see the
vinyl smocks out and the paint
set on the table, it's going to be a
messy day. But then we have
days that we only use crayons
and paper, and parents relax."
The crafts are simple and de-
signed for the preschool aged
child. They don't have to be pro-
fessional artists, but Ms. Whar-
ton said often times the children
are talented.
Sometimes the projects do re-
quire guidance and an extra set
of hands, and parents are en-
couraged to make it a family fun
project by being available and
helping when needed.
"At this age it's important for
children to begin to make some
choices and decisions on their
own, even if they are unconven-
tional choices," Ms. Wharton
said. "This also is a great time
for them to develop those fine
motor skills..
"These skills will be impor-

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

To Shoot or Not To Shoot?


Editorial

Charter Changes Deserve a Vote;

That Vote Should Be 'No!'


Circuit Judge John Laurent's finding
that Elections Supv. Lori Edwards was
within her rights to allow Dewey Smith an
additional 30 days for his petition drive
presumably was good law.
Beyond that, we believe it was the cor-
rect one, the logical one, indeed, the demo-
cratic one.
Laurent- ruled last week that Ms.
Edwards acted properly in allowing Smith
30 days to gather more petitions after his
initial batch fell short of the required num-
ber. The Polk County charter is unclear on
whether the 30 days to correct a shortage
of petitions allows an extension to the one-
year limit for circulating a petition, or if it
must come within that year.
Ms. Edwards took the position that it
was in addition to the one year, and Judge
Laurent ruled that she "reached a logical
conclusion without an abuse of discre-
tion."
Smith's Home Rule Charter Committee
circulated petitions to put three charter
amendments on ballot. They would:
(1) Make the county's constitutional offi-
cers (sheriff, courts clerk, supervisor of
elections, property appraiser, and tax col-
lector) elected department heads, answer-
able to the county manager.
(2) Limit them to two consecutive terms
in office.
(3) Cut their salaries in half;
Ms. Edwards determined that there
were enough signatures gathered to put
the first two amendments on the ballot,
and that the third fell,61 signatures short.
Several years ago, Smith led a petition
drive to limit county commissioners to two
consecutive terms, and to cut their pay in
half. Both measures passed by a margin of
more than 70 percent. We believe the vote
was an expression of the public's dissatis-
faction with bickering among commission-
ers, a condition that no longer exists.
We opposed both amendments, and we
will oppose the new proposals with even
more fervor. We believe they are bad gov-
ernment.
Making elected officials responsive to
an appointed county manager, who in
turn works for elected county commis-
sioners, is a management structure that is
unwieldy, to say the least. The purported
reason for this convoluted organizational
chart is to bring the budgets of the consti-
tutional officers under the control of the
county commission.
State law already gives the county com-
mission that authority; all it has to do is


show the political courage to exercise it,
not easy when the sheriff's department
fills the commission's meeting room with a
sea of green-clad deputies. But the author-
ity, as we read state law, is clearly there.
Term limits for the constitutional officers
is also a bad idea.
All five hold complex jobs, jobs which
call for extensive professional experience.
When novices are elected to the posts, it
behooves them to retain the expertise of
the staff built by their predecessors. In
most cases, that has been done in Polk
County.
An argument can be made for term lim-
its for policy-makers, although we oppose
that, also.
But for professionals in the areas of law
enforcement, records keeping, accounting,
auditing, appraisals, and conduct of elec-
tions, it makes no sense to throw out
incumbents who have eight years of expe-
rience for no other reason than that they
have eight years of experience.
The salary cuts are a dead issue, and
require no comment, other than to observe
that they would serve no good purpose,
and in the case of the sheriff, would make
him one of the lowest paid heads of a law
enforcement agency in the county.
Both charter amendments, in our judg-
ment, would be bad public policy.
That said, Dewey Smith and his fellow
government activists secured the reces-
sary number of petition signatures to put
them before the voters, the supervisor of
elections made every effort to give them
that opportunity, and a circuit judge said
she was correct.
The charter changes have been brought
to the ballot fair and square; the voters
properly will make the final decision, and
that is as it should be.
Hopefully, their decision will be a
resounding "No!"

OUR READERS SAY

Keep Fixed Meeting Time


BARTOW I have attended
city commission meetings regu-
larly for at least 15 years. I believe
my attendance record will com-
pare favorably with that of the
commissioners. Usually the
meetings are interesting and


worthwhile.
At other times, the cc
sioners really confuse m
this idea of starting the r
meeting on a flexible schec
at whatever time the works
completed. The commiss

complaints seem to center on the
Immis- fact that occasionally once in
e, like awhile the workshop ends
regular early, leaving them with free time
dule of a few minutes, probably less
shop is than 30 minutes. (A check of
ioners' workshop minutes should indi-
cate how often the workshop has
ended early. In my memory, it
doesn't seem very frequently.)
If it is necessary to shorten the
time allotted for the workshop,
cut the tine at the top. Start the
workshop at 5:30. Start the com-
mission meeting at 6:30.
The citizens are interested in
what time the regular meeting
starts so they can adjust their
plans evening meal, for exam-
rs" ple and get to the meeting on
time. A lot of pHysically-chal-
lenged people, especially diabet-
ics, need to adhere to a rather
strict meal schedule.
In short, the meeting time
should be citizen-friendly, and
S left at its 6:30 time.
AL SNAPP


Florida or at least the
Florida Legislature has earned
itself another 15 minutes of fame
with its new "meet force with
force" law allowing Floridians to
shoot each other if we feel suffi-
ciently threatened.
Supporters of the law, includ-
ing a vast majority of the mem-
bers of the Florida Legislature,
call it a victory for the Castle
Doctrine, the principle that a
man's home is his castle, even if
encumbered by a 30-year mort-
gage. It even holds that his auto-
mobile which probably cost as
much as us 60-somethings paid
for our no-longer-mortgaged
homes 40 years ago is his cas-
tle on wheels.
I will not attempt to explain
what the law says in any detail; it
is a feel-good measure for those
who favor it, and an invitation to
Wild Wild West shoot-outs for
those who oppose it.
Frankly, I doubt that it will
change things much, since prose-
cutors generally have been reluc-
tant to file charges against people
who may have gone beyond the
letter of the law in defending life
and property with deadly force.
A generation ago, a court deci-
sion spelled out the circum-
stances under which a homeown-
er could or could not shoot a bur-
glar. I was told by a police officer
that his advice to homeowners
was: "Go ahead and shoot 'im; if

he's in the wrong place when we
get there, we'll move him to the
right place."
I don't know of that ever hap-
pening, but restraint in prosecut-
ing such shootings has accom-
plished the same thing. And I'm
perfectly okay with that.
I have always gotten a chuckle
out of the No Trespassing signs
- whether real or apocryphal -
which state simply: "Anyone
found here tonight will be found
here tomorrow."
In the final analysis, we citi-
zens expect, and properly so, our
police officers, to be trained to
such a high standard that their
shoot/don't shoot decisions are
guided by law as well as by
sound judgment. And most of
them are.
We expect, and properly so,
our military to be so familiar with
rules of engagement that they
exercise proper judgment in use
of their rifles, whether on the
field of battle or when putting
down a riot. And most of them
are.
But you and me, Clyde, I don't
think we're likely to think things
through quite that well in a
moment of crisis.
I own two automatic pistols: a
9-millimeter that I bought years
ago when it appeared that
Congress might actually outlaw
purchase of handguns, and an
Army-style .45 caliber automatic


that once belonged to my father-
in-law.
Both are locked in a gun safe,
to which I carry the key with me
during every waking hour. In
other words, they don't exactly
have elephant-gun-over-the-
mantle access. If I should ever
feel constrained to use one
against a burglar, I can only hope
he is a patient one.
For a number of years, we
have had a burglar alarm system
at our house. Over the years, it
has detected several lizards and a
wasp who chanced to crawl
across or light upon a motion
detector, and once or twice ratted
out our black-and-white tuxedo
cat, Inker Dinker, when we forgot
to let him out before leaving the
house.
It lets out an alarm that would
put a hard metal rock band to
shame, and simultaneously calls
the alarm company, which then
calls the police.
I don't know how the wasp
and the lizards felt about that, but
Inker was not a happy camper.
I count on the alarm much
more to protect the house when
we are away than to protect me
when I am in it. I am well aware
that the vast number of burglar-
ies are at unoccupied houses.
A few weeks ago, in the mid-
dle of the night, the alarm went
off, awakening me with an effi-
ciency never approached by an


alarm clock.
Did I search for the key to the
gun safe and arm myself for a
shoot-out with an intruder?
It never occurred to me.
I stumbled out to hit the reset
code, steadily cussing the system
for triggering a false alarm.
Moments later, Mary found one
of the French doors from the uhop
to the living room had rot been
locked, and it had been nudged
ajar when the air conditioner
came on cycle.
I suppose that if I had been
predisposed to assume there was
a burglar in the house, and had
taken 10 or 15 minutes to find the
key, unlock the gun safe, and load
a clip of ammunition, I could
have managed to shoot out my
reflection in the French doors. If
my aim were that good at 4 in the
morning, which I doubt.
For those who don't carry
sidearms as part of our daily
vocation, I don't think many of us
are going to stop and assess the
potential threat against the con-
straints of Florida law.
Those of us who aren't dis-
posed to shoot, probably won't.
Those who are, probably will.
And what protects us is that
the burglars don't know which of
us is which.
But they should be aware that
Mary is a better shot than I am,
and she knows where to find the
key.

Congressman Adam Putnam
(FL-12) has joined Congressman
Mark Foley, Congresswoman
Katherine Harris, Senator Mel
Martinez and other members of
the Florida delegation to intro-
duce the Disaster Recovery Act
of 2005, which would make im-
provements to the disaster recov-
ery efforts of the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
(FEMA).
"Immediately after Hurri-
canes Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne
ravaged the Sunshine State,
Congress passed emergency leg-
islation providing $8.5 billion in
hurricane disaster assistance to
the Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA)," Putnam
said. "However most localities
have yet to be reimbursed for the
full clean-up efforts, in most
cases receiving only partial pay-
ment for the costs incurred for
recovery.
"Less than two months from


manuvers.
Top Gun is held at the west-
ern most portion of Lakeland
Linder Airport, approximately
one mile west of the airport ter-
minal on Drane Field Road. The
action starts at 8:30 a.m. and
continues until 5 p.m. every day.
Tickets are $10, and kids under
7 are admitted at no charge.
Parking is free.

the start of the 2005 hurricane
season, several counties that suf-
fered extensive damage due to
the hurricanes are still waiting
for FEMA to reimburse them for
debris removal," he said. "In ad-
dition, FEMA's laborious paper-
work and reviews have the po-
tential to derail budgets of
smaller counties with limited re-
sources. In many instances,
these localities withstood some
of the worst hurricane damage."
The Disaster Recovery Act
has three major components:
Requires FEMA to pay lo-
calities up to 50 percent of eligi-
ble public assistance money no
later than 60 days after an eligi-
ble claim is filed;
Requires FEMA to reim-
burse localities for the clearing
and removal of debris on all
emergency access roads (those
that require access by emergency
personnel during natural disas-
ters);


Spring Musical This Weekend
At Harrison Center for the Arts Pets Owners
Invited to


Instead of "Puttin' on the
Ritz," the musical theater de-
partment of Harrison Center for
the Arts will be "Puttin' on the
Pink" in an all-female cast
spring production.
The show, "A ... My Name Is
Still Alice," will feature musical
theatre majors all wearing
shades of pink as they perform
songs, monologues, and dance
numbers.
But don't be fooled by the
frills and froufrou of a pink
wardrobe. The 10 senior and jun-
ior students are tackling serious
female coming of age issues in
this play written by Joan Mick-
lin Silver and Julianne Boyd.
"The show is about growing
up, relationships, the work force
and making one's way through
life," said musical theater direc-
tor Laurel Renfroe.
An example of the show's ap-
proach is a number featuring a
female exhibition basketball


team. Local educator Dr. Ben
Graffam staged the piece after
coaching the girls in basketball
terminology and actual game
moves.
In addition to Ms. Renfroe's
direction, the show has two vocal
directors Rebecca Renfroe and
Ceci Ingram sharing staging,
musical direction, and theatrical
assistant duties.
Students also are assisting
Laurel Renfroe in assignments
with direction, stage work, and
choreography that will count for
a grade.
Attendees are encouraged to
wear something pink (yes, even
the guys) for a Puttin' on the
Pink raffle during intermission.
Performance dates are Friday
and Saturday, April 29 and 30,
at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, May 1,
at 2 p.m.
For ticket information, call
the Box Office at 499-2939.

whole life is little children," but'
, that he, or any of the other board'
members, could not support this-
proposal.
"I was disappointed (by the
refusal)," said Mrs. Friedt, "but I
could understand the logic of the
board."
While the board turned down
the proposal, they still must offer
a 300-hour summer program free
to parents.
Preschool options will still be
available, including .a school
readiness program (dropout pre-
vention targeting poor, at-risk


children), an ESE program (for
children with identifiable disabil-
ities) and a fee for services pro-
gram 'as space 'permits. Private
providers, such as day-care cen-
ters, will continue to pick up the
slack. .
In the future, Mrs. Friedt said,
if there are "significant changes
in requirements," she would
gladly present the program to the
board again.
Parents looking for a school
readiness program, Mrs. Friedt
said, should contact their local
elementary schools or call 534-
0211 to request an application.

Makes debris removal from
private lands an eligible claim
for federal assistance.
On March 15, Putnam and
the chairman of the Committee
on Homeland Security held a col-
loquy on the House floor to clar-
ify FEMA's statuary authority.
Under the Stafford Act, the
President is currently authorized
to render federal assistance to
states, localities, and certain
non-profit organizations to pro-
vide care, restore damaged or de-
stroyed facilities, clear debris on
public and private lands when
found to be in the public inter-
est, and aid individuals and
families with uninsured needs.
"My colleagues on both sides
of the aisle in.the Florida delega-
tion are joining me in sending a
letter to the President urging
him to exercise his current
authority under the Stafford Act,
and allow recovery efforts to
move forward," Putnam said.

Visit Weedon Island
Through Film And Photos


Through photographs and
film, visitors to Weedon Island
Preserve Cultural and Natural
History Center, 1800 Weedon
Drive, St. Petersburg, can enjoy
a magical journey into the living
waters of Florida's aquatic pre-
serves.
The exhibit and award-win-
ning documentary, "Living Wa-
ters: Aquatic Preserves of Flor-
ida," showcases a dozen of the
state's 41 aquatic preserves,
highlighting their natural and
cultural significance.
"Living Waters: Aquatic Pre-
serves of Florida highlights
the environmental and economic
significance of Florida's diverse
water wonderlands," said Flor-
ida Department of Environmen-


tal Protection (DEP) Secretary
Colleen M. Castille. "This film
encourages environmental stew-
ardship, increasing awareness
and understanding for protecting
Florida's liquid parks, their wa-
ters and important wildlife."
Florida designated its first
aquatic preserve, Estero Bay,
nearly four decades ago. Recog-
nizing the environmental .diver-
sity and beauty of Florida's
coastal waters, the 1975 Florida
Aquatic Preserve Act ensured
that aquatic preserves' "natural
condition.., their aesthetic, bio-
logical and scientific values may
endure for the enjoyment of fu-
.ture generations."
The exhibit is on display
through April 30.

Study Links Smoking to Kidney Disease


Most everyone knows that
smoking can cause lung cancer.
But how many people realize
that inhaled tobacco smoke can
wreak havoc on their kidneys?
A study in a recent issue of
the International Journal of
Cancer revealed that the link be-
tween smoking and kidney can-
cer is much greater than ex-
pected.
The researchers analyzed
data front, 24 -.-;epar3te stidies
and tound tha te prevalence of
kidney cancer was much higher''
among smokers than nonsmok-
ers. They also discovered that
the more a person smoked, the
greater the danger for his/her
',kidneys.
"The risk of kidney cancer
peems to increase with tobacco
consumption," said Paolo Bof-
fetta, M.D., lead researcher of
the study and head of the Gene-
Environment Epidemiology
'Group in Lyon, France.
SHistorically, a larger number
mf men have smoked cigarettes
than women. The gender gap ap-
pears to be closing however, as
the decline in smoking rates
among adult women seemed to
Stall in the 1990s, while the
number of teenage girls using
cigarettes increased signifi-
bantly.

school seniors currently smoke,
according to a report from the
U.S. Surgeon General. Almost
all women who presently smoke
started the habit as teens.
The study found that male
smokers were at greater risk of
disease than female smokers.
"This might reflect a true bio-
logical event," Boffetta said. "But
it also might be due to the fact
that the tobacco epidemics have
not yet fully matured in women.
For example, smoking women"
have on average smoked less and
for a shorter duration than


smoking men."
In the United States, men
were smoking cigarettes in large
numbers after World War I.
Most women in this country did
not start smoking until after
World War II.
According to the surgeon gen-
eral, there has been a 600 per-
cent increase in lung cancer
deaths for women since 1950.
The number of women ssuffer-
ing from smoking-related kidney
disease may reflect the same
trend, as America's female smok-
ing population ages.

2004 Quality on Tap Report

City of Fort Meade

We're very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Quality Water Report. We want to keep you informed about the
Excellent water and services we have delivered to you over the past year. Our goal is and always has been, to provide to you
a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. Our water source is three wells that draw water from the Floridan aquifer. The
water is then aerated to remove volatile contaminants, disinfected with chlorine, and then delivered to your home or business.

We are pleased to report that our drinking water meets all federal and state requirements.

If you have any questions about this" report or concerning your water utility, Please contact Kenny Pollard at the City of Fort
Meade, (863) 285-9222. We want our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more,
please attend any of our regularly scheduled City Commission meetings. They are held on the second Tuesday of the month
at City HAIL This report will not be mailed to our customers or the general public, unless requested. Copies are available at
City Hall.

The City of Fort Meade routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules
and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of
January 1st to December 31st, 2004. Also included are test results in earlier years for contaminants sampled less often than
annually. For contaminants not required to be tested for in 2004, test results are for the most recent testing done in accordance
with regulations authorized by the state and approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

As water travels over the land or underground it can pick up substances or contaminants such as microbes, inorganic and
organic chemicals, and radioactive substances. All drinking water, including bottled drinking water, may be reasonably ex-
pected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. It's important to remember that the presence of these con-
taminants does not necessarily pose a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be
obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800426-4791.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and
wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in
some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff,
industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
Pesticides and herbicides; which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and
residential uses.
Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial
processes and, petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring, or be the result of oil and gas production or mining activities.

In the data table you will find many terms you might not be familiar with. To help you better understand

As you can see by the table, our system had no violations. We're proud that your drinking.water meets or exceeds all
Federal and State requirements.

MCLs are set at very stringent levels. To understand the possible health effects described for many regulated constituents,
a, person would have to drink 2 liters of water every day at the MCL level for a lifetime to have a one-in-a-million chance of
having the described health effect.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants
in water provided by Public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must
provide the same protection for public health.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised
persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people
with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections.
These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate
means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe
Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe
and dependable water supply we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit all of our customers. These
improvements are sometimes reflected as rate structure adjustments. Thank you for understanding.

"We at The City of Fort Meade work around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap," said Kenny Pollard, Chief
Water Plant Operator. We ask that all our customers help us protect our water source, which are the heart or our commu-
nity, our way of life and our children's future.

Please call our office if you have questions.

ment period provided in this

trator of the EPA that it was
impracticable to raise such ob-
jections within the comment

meet the requirements of 42
U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2)

Safety Tips For Parents


In response to the tragic cases
of child abduction and murder in
the Central Florida area, the
Polk County Sheriffs Office is of-
fering safety tips to parents.
"The protection of our chil-
dren is a growing concern and a
top priority for law enforcement,
and we are committed to doing
our part in keeping children
safe," Sheriff Grady Judd said.
"We also remind parents that
crime prevention starts at home,
and we encourage families to dis-
cuss safety tips with their chil-
dren."
Children should:
Never say they're alone
when answering the phone.
Know their full name, as
well as address and phone num-
ber.
Never answer the door if
they are home alone or without a
parent's permission.
Never invite anyone into the
house without the permission of
a parent or baby-sitter.
Never take candy or gifts
from strangers or anyone else
without asking a parent first.
Never play in deserted
buildings or isolated areas.
Move or run away from cars


that pull up beside them if they
do not know the driver.
Avoid shortcuts through
empty parks, fields or alleys.
Run home or to the nearest
public place if they are being fol-
lowed and yell for help.
Tell parents where they are
at all times or leave a message
at home.
Parents should:
Avoid clothing and toys with
your child's name on it.
Never leave your child alone
in a public place, stroller or car,
even for a minute.
Always accompany your
child to the bathroom in public
places.
Always accompany your
child on door to door activities.
Create an environment
where your child feels safe to
talk to you.
Teach children that police
officers and deputies are their
friends.
Stay involved in your child's
life by communicating daily.
For more information or to
schedule a child safety program,
contact the PCSO Crime Preven-
tion Unit at 534-6677.


ATTENTION!

Words on paper. They will always be the most powerful tools 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.

to hit each other with their hose.

By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

Long after the Lake Region
players and fans had packed up
to leave and the bus had pulled
away from the parking lot, the
Bartow High School baseball
team remained on the field, get-
ting a earful from the coaching
staff.
First year coach Eric
Danapilis had plenty to discuss
with his team after the fourth
consecutive loss by the Jackets
in nine days, in which, up and
down the order, batting averages
have fallen as the Jackets have
only been able to score one run
in each of the past three games.
"When a team doesn't play
well, it's the coach's fault and I
take all responsibility for the
team's lack of performance,"
Danapilis said after the 2-1 loss.
As of late, the Jackets (18-7)
haven't been enjoying the timely
hitting that bailed them out of so
many games earlier in the sea-
son. With the newly-silent bats,
Bartow's coaching staff says it's
not, a matter of talent, but atti-
tude.
'We've lost a lot of communi-
cation," said Bartow Assistant
Coach Greg Crum.
The amount of strike outs
without a swing over the losing
streak is indicative of the Jack-
ets' lack of focus at the plate.
From what transpired earlier in
the season, when the Jackets
were able to squeeze out come-
from-behind wins in the later in-
nings, Crum said he knows the
players can hit. It's just a matter
of getting through to them.
"Now it's time for some real
strict discipline," he said.
On Monday, the Jackets fell
behind in the top of the first to
Mulberry (13-9) and afterwards,
it was the same old story offen-
sively for Bartow as they fell 5-1.


Golf


Bartow Women's Golf Asso-
ciation held a series of competi-
tions in the last two months.
Jane Klitzing became the
handicap champion during the
championship held in March
and April.
First runner-up was Mary
Bourque. Second runner-up
was Carol Lowden. Mandy Sin-
gletary and Ethel Smith tied
for third runner-up.
In the best nines half handi-
cap competition held April 5,
Mary Bourque and Martha
Post both tied for first with
scores of 35.
Connie Stidham took first
for the Divine Niners with a
score of 45 and a half.
Yvonne Cole and Mandy
Singletary teamed up to win
the scratch and scramble com-
petition on April 12.
Connie Stidham and Lousie
Wilkie took first for the Divine
Niners with a score of 37.
At the two penny putts com-
petition held on April 19,
Carol Lowden and Martha Post
tied for first with scores of 32.
Connie Stidham took first
for the Divine Niners.


Despite tying the score in the
bottom of the first on an RBI sin-
gle from sophomore Joey Man-
ning and a combined six-hit
pitching performance by Bran-
don Patterson and Mike Leckie,
the Jackets were unable to pro-
vide the rim support to get the
victory.
In the third inning, a slew of
Bartow errors prolonged the in-
ning, leading to four Panther
runs.
The Jackets were only able to
get four base runners on after
that point and left all of them
stranded.
On Wednesday evening, eight
Bartow runners were left by
their lonesome on base and the
Jackets fell 2-1 to Lake Region
(12-11), a team they had beaten
to win the Lake Region Classic
over Spring Break.
The Jackets once again were
given a chance from the pitching
staff, but a lack of run support
once again resulted in a loss.
Junior pitcher Jack Murphy
went all seven innings for Bar-
tow, allowing two runs on six
hits, but still fell to 4-3 on the
season.
Even with a minor line-up
shuffle to start the game, the
Jackets once again were unable
to get anything going, getting
only three men on base through
five innings two singles, a
Lake Region error and a hit by
pitch.
Offensively for the Thunder,
Manning was unable to hold on
to the ball for a play at the plate,
allowing left fielder Craig Grum-
bly to score in the second inning.
In the next inning, the. left


fielder, Kevin Kok, scored on a
wild pitch and that would be all
the Thunder would need.
With the prospect of scoring
only two runs in 21 innings
looming, Coach Danapilis began
shuffling the line-up once again
to try and get production.
The Jackets were able to get
on the score board after Murphy
was hit by a pitch for the second
time in the game, extending the
inning, and allowing Josh Ward
to knock in Matt Davis on an
RBI single.
Unfortunately, that was all
the Jackets could muster.
"We have one of the best
coaches in the county, and the
area he knows better than any-
thing is hitting," said Crum,
"Some of the boys just aren't lis-
tening right now, and we are go-
ing to make some adjustments."
Despite the recent unpleas-
antness, things aren't all bad.
Thanks to a loss by Lake Wales,
the Bartow High School baseball
team was able to capture the sec-
ond seed in the district tourna-
ment.
They have maintained a top
10 ranking throughout the sea-
son and are looking at a good
chance of taking on the Winter
Haven Blue Devils for a shot at
advancing to the state tourna-
ment.
All thatwon't mean anything,
though, if Bartow continues to
struggle to score runs.
The Jackets have their last
regular season chance to get the
offense back on track tonight
when Lake Gibson comes to
town for senior night.
Game time is 7:30 p.m.

By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER

In a few.months, The Gracious
Mistress of the Parsonage and
Yours Truly .will have our fifth
grandchild.
SSo far, they are all boys, except
for one girl. We're not sure what
the fifth one will be, but this one
thing I do know it will be "per-
fect" like the rest of the grand-
children.
For some reason, God has
blessed us with the world's most
'perfect grandchildren. And I have
the pictures to prove it.
I know some grandparents fal-
laciously brag about their grand-
children and how perfect and
beautiful they are, and bring out
a wallet full of pictures to bore
those of us who really do have
perfect grandchildren. No brag
here -just the facts, ma'am.
I must confess, when our chil-
dren were growing up they
showed no indication whatsoever
of producing the world's most per-
fect grandchildren. If the truth
were known, several times during
their life I did not think they
would reach the grand old age of
20.
Children have a way of push-
ing buttons. Not just buttons on
appliances in the home, but my
buttons, driving me absolutely
crazy. One thing I would like to
know, who issues all those licens-
es to children enabling them to
drive their parents crazy? It's
about time they retired that per-
son to some lonely island some-
where.
I well remember the day my
wife and I brought our firstborn
home from the hospital a high
watermark day in our life, I
assure you.
When children are first
brought home, they are so
adorable. Who knows what
shenanigans 'lie hidden behind
those beautiful eyes? Not new
parents for sure.
Somehow, and don't tell me
how they do it, unborn children
have developed an elaborate con-
spira y against parents.
The conspiracy goes something
like this: The first child born is
always a great, delight. They usu-
ally sleep well at night and
brighten up the home so much
that..after a month or so the par-
ents look at each other and say,


"Wouldn't it be nice to have a sec-
ond baby?"
And this is exactly what chil-
dren want parents to say.
The second child is vastly dif-
ferent from the first child. This
second child does not sleep at
night. They have their days and
nights mixed up, or so they would
have us believe. The fact is, the
two children have an arrange-
ment where one sleeps while the
other one cries. Then when the
one is tired of drying it falls asleep
only to awaken the first baby who
resumes the job of crying. The
whole plan is to deprive parents
of as much sleep as possible.
About this time the parents get
adjusted to a certain degree, look
at each other again, and say,
"Wouldn't it be nice to have a
third baby?"
The first two children hear this
and giggle, knowing their plan is
working out quite nicely.
When the third child comes
home, the parents discover he or
she is vastly different from the
first two. Now, with three chil-
dren in the home, they work in
eight-hour shifts. Their purpose
is to wear down those parents in
preparation for the children's
teenage years.
Every child knows that, unless
a parent's resistance is compro-
mised in their infancy, its teenage
years will be difficult if not impos-
sible. They will not be able to con-
trol those parents that brought
them into the world as well as
bringing them everything else.
Bringing those adorable babies
home from the hospital, parents
have no idea that in 13 years
their nerves will be so shot they
may even despair of life itself.
But then, miracle of miracles,
the children one-by-one get mar-
ried and move out of the home.
Some parents refer to this as the
"empty-nest syndrome."
At first, parents do not know
what to do. They go to the refrig-
erator, expecting it to be empty,
and to their surprise, it is just as
it was when they looked the last
time.
Walking to'the living room is a
treat. No dirty socks hanging
from a light shade, no shoes piled
up in the middle of thieroom, and
no lights on when nobody is in the
room. When the telephone rings,
it is actually for them.


This at first is a great shock to
most parents and it takes about a
year to adjust.
Then something happens,
changing the world for these par-
ents, making up for all those
years of torture, torment, and
trepidation.
The first child visits the
"empty-nesters" with their spouse
and makes a. formal announce-
ment that will eventually change
their world.
"Mom, Dad, we're expecting a
baby."
The months following, drag on
for an eternity, but finally the
blessed event comes. Oh, what a
day that is for all concerned.
My one question is, how can
children who have terrorized your
life for 10 years produce the
world's most perfect grandchil-
dren?
Perhaps, and I'm only conjec-
turing here, the secret to the
world's most perfect grandchil-
dren lies with their grandparents.
Be it far from me to take credit
where credit is not due, but the
facts are on my side.


These wonderful grandchil-
dren get their "perfect genes"
somewhere, and it is certain they
don't get them from their parents.
The only logical conclusion for the
thinking person is grandparents.,
It is my personal conviction
that God gives grandchildren as
an apology for children. One
grandchild can cause any grand-
parent to forget 100 years of tor-
ture.
Even the Bible sings the prais-
es of grandchildren. "Children's
children are the crown of old men;
and the glory of children are their
fathers." (Proverbs 17:6 KJV)
If perfection is in the eyes of
the beholder, I can't wait to hold
her or him.

Developing a Loving Relationship


Q


...


God is love.
New K.J.,V 1 John 4:8


SThe Bible tells us that "God is Love, and he who
abides in love abides in God, and God in him" and that
"We love Him because He first loved us", (1 John 4:16,
19). These verses are true not only between our
Heavenly Father and us, but also when we are
involved with others. Children will develop a love for
their parents because of the unselfish love their par-
ents have for them. Also, a wife or husband will devel-
op a stronger love for each other when their love is
returned to them. When someone dislikes us or offends
us, it is a natural instinct to distance ourselves.from
them; however, when someone is loving and kind to us,
we have a tendency to want to draw closer to them.
God's perfect love for mankind is exemplified by His
giving of His only begotten Son to die for our sins. And,
just as His forgiving love is always extended to us, we
should also be forgiving of others. True forgiveness
breeds love, and discovering the good in others, and
discounting their faults, are essential for developing a
loving relationship.

"From God," I answered. "We
never askiman for anything, only
God." '
Coming to a board that dis-
played the items we were pray-
ing for, he saw a folding ma-
chine.
"Think you'll get it?" he asked.
"I knpw i." I said, "God an-
- swers prayer."
With an unbelieving smile, he
sat down and the phone rang. A
man from the west said. "Your
broadcast just blessed my heart.
What do you need?"
"A $500 folding machine," I
Answered.
"Buy it," he said. 'I'll send a

Reflections On


Faith

By Roger Campbell



Trashing Others Grieves God


By ROGER CAMPBELL

The troubled grandmother
who called was alarmed about a
decision by a major television
station in her area to start airing
a tabloid-type talk show known
for showing people at their worst
at a time when children were
likely to be watching.
After she described the show
to me, I shared her concern and
advised her to change channels
or turn off her TV at that time
and notify the station of her deci-
sion to do so.
But children aren't the only
victims of the trash talking ol
our time.
Solomon said we become what
we think (Proverbs 23:7), so con-
tinually focusing on the real or
imaginary faults of others en-
dangers us all.
People who enjoy trashing
others have been around for a
long time and Bible writers ad-
vise us to avoid them. Paul told
those in the church at Ephesus
that their slander of others was
grieving God, and called for
kindness rather than criticism to
characterize their conversations
(Ephesians 4:31).
Peter saw malicious gossip as
an indication of spiritual in-
fancy. Many who constantly at-
tack the character of other peo-
ple believe their destructive
work is a mark of maturity, but
Peter saw it as kid stuff (1 Peter
2:1-2).
It's impossible to believe and
say the worst about others and
escape emotional damage to our-
selves.
According to the Bible, we're
to always look for the best in
others (Philippians 4:8). Reject-
ing this clear command of scrip-
ture contributes to a critical atti-
tude that will result in habitu-
ally emphasizing the real or
imaginary faults of others.
And those who give them-
selves to this negative work will
invoke the law of' sowing and


reaping which promises to de-
liver trash to the world's trash
r peddlers (Galatians 6:7).
How then shall we respond to
those who trash others?
We can refuse to listen to
their sordid tales.
S C.H. Spurgeon, the highly re-
spected and still often quoted
19th Century English minister,
Wrote: "Let us be very careful not
to believe rumors about good
I people. If there are no believers
Sin lies, there will be a poor mar-
ket for falsehoods."
A brokenhearted woman
shared the reasons for her tears
f with me. She was upset over the
attitudes of the people from her
church with whom she socialized
because they spent most of their
time together complaining about
their church and pastor.
This was affecting her mar-
riage, her family, and her faith.
Times together that should
have been enjoyable and uplift-
ing were given to rehashing
negative conversations recalled
from their last meeting and add-
ing new ones.
Though this grieving woman
refused to take part in these
slander sessions, she was being
adversely affected by hearing
this crowd trash those she re-
spected.
What could she do?
She could insist that her
friends stop trashing people in
their frequent gatherings for fel-
lowship, and inform them if this
didn't happen she would find
new friends.
In his book, "How To Win
Over Depression," Dr. Tim La-
have says: "Avoid the com-


plainer, the griper, the
most of all, avoid in
them. Negativism, pes
griping, criticism, and go
not only harmful, but
gious. In fact, you reinfoi
in your mind every time
balize them. Keep your c
tion and your mind pos
all times."

Orange White
. Chocolate
Cheesecake


reamy and mouthwateringly yummy,
cheesecake is still America's
favorite dessert, popular with both
restaurant chefs and home cooks. And what
better season than spring to celebrate its
lighter texture and warm colors? Serve your
homemade cheesecake proudly on a cake
stand or plate, garnished simply with fresh
berries, chocolate shavings, edible spring
flower blossoms or paper-thin slices of citrus
fruit.
Cheesecake certainly looks luscious, but
it's the taste and texture that are the true hall-
marks of this dessert. Cheesecake can take
on just about any palate-pleasing flavor, from
S citrus, berry or orchard fruits to nuts, coffee
and chocolate. Yet it's the silky smooth tex-
ture that is the real standout. Achieving this
rich creaminess is easy when you use sweet-
ened condensed milk, a classic dessert staple
as convenient as your pantry or grocery store
S shelves.
