County Raises Impact Fee for


EMS; Imposes New Parks Fee


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

With virtually no public oppo-
sition, county commissioners
voted on Wednesday to raise
impact fees for emergency med-
ical service equipment and sta-
tions and to impose a new impact
fee for parks, effective Oct. 1.
Impact fees are 'imposed on
new construction to reimburse
the county for capital expendi-
tures made necessary by growth.
The EMS impact fee will go
from $49.to $96.77 for single-fam-
ily homes. The money will pay for
new ambulances and EMS sta-
tions.
The new parks impact fee -
$443.84 for a single family resi-
dence will provide money for
purchase and development of new
parks and enhancement of exist-
ing ones.
By the time the commission
took up the EMS fee, a few min-
utes before 5 p.m., there were few
people still in the audience.
David Huff of Winter Haven
noted that the impact fee commit-


tee determined the useful life of a
house to be 27 years, based on
Internal Revenue Service rules.
He said that number is unreal-
istic, and "is meaningless" for
determining the true impact of
new construction. Mortgages
commonly are written for 30
years, he said. Forty years would
be more realistic, he said, adding
that the "27-year assumption
means that impact fees would be
at least 25 percent too low.
"We need to make growth pay
its own way," he said.
Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson said all impact fee
studies have used the IRS figure
of a 27-year life cycle for homes.
Commissioner Paul Senrft said
mortgage decisions are linked
more closely to the age of the bor-
rower than the age of the house.
Ed White of Lakeland called
the impact fee a tax "on people
who aren't here yet." He told the
commission it should cut spend-
ing instead.
He also said that ambulances
last longer than the impact fee
advisory committee estimated.
Commission Chm. Jack Myers


commended the advisory commit-
tee for its work. He said that the
fact that only two people
appeared at the public hearing
was a reflection on the commit-
tee's work.
Raymond Chatlos, EMS direc-
tor, said EMS stations typically
cost $500,000 to $550,000.
Wilkinson asked how many
additional stations are needed.
Chatlos said that there is no
projection on that, because sever-
al existing stations have room to
add another EMS crew,
Wilkinson said the impact fee
is expected to bring in about
$500,000 a year, and that he
would like more information on
how the money will be spent.
Myers said the county needs to
put more EMS crews in service.
Senft said that growth in
northeast Polk County alone
would justify three new EMS sta-
tions.
Wilkinson said that doubling
the fee for homes after 15 years
without an increase was not
unreasonable, but that the
impact fee for schools would go
from $47 to $1,160.


Senft said the new impact fee
for schools is $1.16 per square
foot. It will be assessed against
charter and private schools, but
not against public schools.
Wilkinson said the county is
penalizing private schools.
The impact fee on churches
would be increased 25-fold, he
said.
Randy Young of Henderson,
Young and Co., the consultant
who did the study, said EMS is
making an average of one call per
day to churches, reflecting the use
of churches for activities other
than worship services. That has
resulted in an increase in calls to
churches, he said.
Wilkinson voted against the
increase, which passed on a 4-to-1
vote.
The parks impact fee drew no
comment from the audience, and
was adopted with little discussion
by the commission.
As recommended by Young, the
fee will be $443.84 on single-fam-
ily homes.
Wilkinson moved approval of
the parks impact fee, and the vote
to impose it was unanimous.


County Delays Action



On Calling Referendum


K-9 XENA "stops, drops, and rolls" (below) dur-
ing a demonstration at the State Fire Marshall's
open house last week. Xena, a labrador retriever, is
trained to do many tricks, but her main job is sniff-
ing out different types of accelerants at arson
scenes. She showed those skills to her audience, as
well, by locating some tiny drops of evaporated gas


near a car (above). Labs are commonly used as
accelerant detection dogs because they are hunting
dogs instinctively and have a mild temperament,
said Xena's handler, Eric Saccasyn. The open house
was held as part of Arson Awareness Week. (Staff

County Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson failed to persuade his
fellow commissioners on
Wednesday to schedule an elec-
tion to consider two citizen-pro-
posed charter changes to make
constitutional officers elected
department heads and to limit
them to two consecutive terms in
office.
"It may be construed that we're
being obstructionist," Wilkinson
said, noting that Circuit Judge
John Laurent has ruled Elections
Supv. Lori Edwards acted within
her authority when she found
that enough petitions were sub-
mitted to put the two proposals
before the voters, A third initia-
tive, to cut their salaries by half,
was short 61 signatures, Ms.
Edwards said.
The issue on which Judge
Laurent ruled was that the char-
ter requires signatures to be col-
lected within one year, but gives


petition circulators 30 days to get
additional signatures if there are
not enough valid ones submitted.
Ms. Edwards concluded that the
30 days was in addition to the one
year. Sam Killebrew, who leads a
group that is opposing the peti-
tion drive, filed suit, asserting
that the 30 days has to be within
that year.
Judge Laurent upheld Ms.
Edwards' decision.
Wilkinson said the charter
requires the commission to take
action within 60 days after the
elections supervisor reports the
results of a petition drive.
"The clock is already running,"
he said.
County Atty. Joseph Jarret
said lawyers for both sides have
petitioned the court for a further
ruling, so the commission does
not have to act yet.
"There's no issue at this point
that the commission could be
accused of being dilatory," he said.
Wilkinson accused Jarret of fil-
ing "a friend of the court brief on
behalf of Mr. Killebrew."


Jarret denied the accusation,
and said he had only given an
interpretation of the charter. The
county was a defendant in
Killebrew's suit.
Wilkinson read a memo that
Jarret sent to Ms. Edwards say-
ing she had the authority to reject
the second batch of petitions, and
a later memo to the county com-
missipn saying he believed the
petition drive to be "null and
void."
Referring to Ms. Edwards,
Jarret told the commission on
Wednesday:
"Until such time as she does
her job, you can't do your job.
"This case has not been decid-
ed by the court."
The commission should act
only after the validity of the peti-
tions has been certified by Ms.
Edwards, he said.
Jarret said Ms. Edwards sub-
mitted two sets of numbers, one
based on the one-year deadline,
the other based on the 30-day
extension.
Wilkinson said that both Judge


Laurent and Ms. Edwards had
deemed the second batch of peti-
tions to be valid.
He said that when results of a
previous petition drive were sub-
mitted to the commission by
Helen Gienau, then supervisor of
elections, Mark Carpanini, then
the county attorney, advised the
commission that it had no author-
ity not to order an election.
That petition drive, which
passed with more than 70 percent
voter approval, cut the pay of
county commissioners in half and
limited them to two consecutive
terms.
Jarret told Wilkinson he could
make a motion to call for an elec-
tion in spite of the fact that the
case is still in the court.
Wilkinson declined to make a
motion, saying that if he did so
and it failed, he would be barred
from making another motion on
the issue in the future.
At that point, Commission
Chm. Jack Myers declared a halt
to the discussion.

Wildfire and Juvenile Arson

Focus of Awareness Week


State Fire Marshals based in
Bartow observed Arson
AWareness Week last week with
ait open house, while state offi-
cials called attention to wildfire
anrd juvenile arson.
-Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson said that arson and
escaped debris burning continue
td be .the. top' two causes of
Florida wildfires.
j:"Arson is a malicious crime
that destroys valuable resources
a#d property," Bronson said.
"Arson fires are also a threat to
4 1 I


public safety and unnecessarily
risk the lives of firefighters."
Since January of this year, 179
arson fires have burned a total of
4,194 acres. Over a five-year
period, arson fires have con-
sumed 170,260 acres.
Florida has a 12-month wild-
fire season, but most large fires
occur during the spring. April,
May and June typically receive
less rainfall than other months,
which tends to increase the num-
ber and severity of wildfires.
Floridians can report any sus-
picious fires by calling 911 or the


Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services toll free hot-
line at 1-800-342-5869. A reward
of up to $5,000 is available for
information leading to the arrest
and conviction of woods arson-
ists.
In. the last 10 months, 39
arrests have been made by
Bronson's Office of Agricultural
Law Enforcement for intentional
burning of wildlands, reckless
burning of wildlands or failing to

How difficult is it to change the
time that the Bartow city com-
mission holds its meetings?
More difficult than you might
think.
For several months, commis-
sioners have toyed with the idea
of changing the hour to begin of
their regular meetings now
6:30 p.m. based on when their
work sessions end.
The work sessions begin at 5
p.m., and sometimes end well
before 6:30, and occasionally last
longer.
Commissioners instructed City
'Atty. George Dunlap to suggest
one or more ways for commission-
ers to avoid wasted time between
the work sessions and their regu-
lar business meetings.
Florida law makes no distinc-
tion between work sessions and
regular meetings; both are open
to the public under Florida's
Government in the Sunshine
Law. Work sessions tend tobe less
formal.
Dunlap presented three possi-
ble formats for the commission at
Monday night's work session, but
warned that things aren't as sim-
ple as they might seem.
His three proposals:


(1) Begin the work session at 5,
with the regular meeting to follow
immediately thereafter. If there
were no work session, the regular
meeting would begin at 5.
(2) Begin the work session at 5,
with the regular meeting to follow
immediately thereafter. If there
were no work session, the regular
meeting would begin at 6:30.
(3) Begin the regular meeting
at 5, and make a work session the
first item of business.
Mayor Leo Longworth suggest-
ed a fourth alternative: allow the
city manager; and the mayor to


change the starting time of the
work session, based on how much,
or how little, business was on the
agenda
Commissioners were on the
verge of adopting that suggestion
until City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
pointed out that the city needs to
advertise a change in starting
times. Since the commission's
agenda usually isn't completed
until Thursday, that leaves little
time to notify voters that the fol-
lowing Monday's meeting would
begin at a different hour.
He asked if the commission


would like to schedule a work ses-
sion a week ahead of the regular
meetings, doubling the number of
meetings from two to four. That
idea went down in flames.
City Clerk Linda Culpepper-
suggested that the commission
begin its regular meetings at
5:30, but start with the work ses-
sion. That idea failed to gain sup-
port, either.
Commissioners decided at
6:25 p.m. to postpone a deci-
sion on changing the time for the
meetings, and reconvened for
their regular meeting.


City Likes Garage Idea If Someone

Else Will Pay Construction Cost


Bartow city commissioners
would like to see a four-story
parking garage built in the coun-
ty governmental complex ... if
somebody else will pay for it.
Commissioners received a
parking garage study from Pat
Steed of the engineering firm of
Post, Buckley, Schuh and
Jernigan, recommending the con-
struction of a parking garage
between the county administra-
tion building and the sheriff's
office operations center.


PBS&J suggested a two-phase
project, with 560 spaces in the
first phase and an expansion to
either 830 or 1,015 spaces in the
second phase.
The survey projected that the
garage would cost $7 million to
$10 million, and would operate at
a $400,000 per year deficit initial-
ly, approaching a break-even
point after 10 years.
Revenue to pay for the struc-
ture would come from rental of
spaces on both a monthly and an


hourly rate.
PBS&J has found no source of
state funds for the -project, she
said.
The firm has asked
Congressman Adam Putnam to
see if federal funds might be
available.
The commission received the
report without extensive discus-
sion, and indicated that a source
of funds is the key question.

Time for a Garden Party!


Warmer spring weather is the
perfect time to get the kids out-
side for the first outdoor party of
the year.
Penny Warner has these ideas
for a Garden Party from her
book, "Kids' Outdoor Parties"
(Meadowbrook Press).
You might even get the kids
to help you in the garden!
Invitations:
Buy seed packets and write
party details in permanent felt-
tip pen on the back.
Attach a card with party de-
tails to a bunch of artificial flow-
ers.
Ask kids to dress in garden-
ing clothes, or decorate their
clothes with leaves and flowers.
Decorations:
Tie paper flowers around
the yard.
Hang posters of fruits and
vegetables.
Set out real or plastic fruits
and vegetables.
Games:
Buy unusual foods and flow-
ers. Have guests guess the
names by look, smell, or taste.
Give each kid a garden
glove and materials such as
small pompoms, wiggly eyes,
felt, puffy paints, felt-tip pens,
etc. Have kids decorate the fin-
gers to make Garden Glove Pup-


pets.
Give each guest a flat metal
tray filled with a layer of potting
soil. Have the kids "write" their
names in the soil with grass
seeds. Spray the dirt lightly with
water and set the tray in indi-
rect sunlight. After the party,
send the trays home with the
guests and in a few days, their
names will start to grow.
Have a variety of small
vegetables and fruits on the ta-
ble. Ask kids to create a Veggie
Monster by using toothpicks to
attach the different pieces of
fruits and vegetables.
Refreshments:
Frost a sheet or round cake
with white icing and sprinkle on
green-tinted coconut. Top with
edible or candy flowers.
Put cut-up fruits and vege-
tables on a skewer stick.
Have bowls of nuts and
seeds.
Decorate sandwiches with
fruits and vegetables to make
funny faces.
Favors:
Packets of seeds
Children's gardening books
Small gardening kits, in-
cluding gloves, a trowel, a
sprayer, seeds, etc. (Feature-

Husband and Wife Artist

Team on Display at Bok


Husband and wife artists, the
Hofreiters, joined together for
Florida's Vanishing Landscapes,
an exhibit on display through
June 2 at Historic Bok Sanctu-
ary.
Mark Hofreiter draws with
pen and ink and paints in oil and
watercolor, and said he is in-
spired mostly by dreams.
"My art is more line driven as
opposed to tonal," he said."My
colors tend to be warm; I identify
contrasting edges, color and ele-
ments quickly. My paint place-
ment is loose and fast, some-
times splashed on the surfaces."
Brenda Hofreiter, wheel-
throwing potter and sculptor, be-
came interested in European
masters and switched her artis-
tic work to two-dimensional art.
During her two-year fellowship


at Crealde School of Art in Win-
ter Park, she discovered her pas-
sion for painting landscapes "en
plein air."
"The sensory experiences of
painting directly frdm nature;
hearing the birds and insects,
smelling the land and water and
feeling the warmth of the sun,
have helped to create the inti-
mate sense of place you see in
my painting," she said.
Viewing the exhibit is free
with general Sanctuary admis-
sion and to members 9 a.m. to 5
p.m. daily. Admission is $8 for
adults and $3 for ages 5-12.
Members and children under
five are admitted free. For ques-
tions about the exhibition or art
purchases, contact Pirjo Restina

Lakeland Government Center

Lease Extended Through 2011


Polk County commissioners
voted on May 4 -to extend the
lease on Lakeland Town Center,
which serves at the Polk County
Lakeland Government Center,
but said they want a county-
owned facility in the future.
The new lease, which will ex-
tend the rental term through
2011, was approved with Gold-
mine Associates.
The county will pay $454,326,
or $9.39 per square foot for the
space, per year.
The former lease offered the
space at $9.17 per square foot
per year.
Terry Pittman, facilities man-
agement director, said, the
county staff had considered relo-
cating the center north, but de-
cided against this option.
"We think this would force
people in central Lakeland and
Winter Haven to make more

trips to Bartow," he said. "As we
all know the current parking
deficit in Bartow is a problem."
The center was studied for
purchase, but the staff decided
against this option, as the gov-
ernment uses only a portion of
the larger center, which has sev-
eral buildings.
Commissioners approved the
plan, but expressed the hope the
county would fund a more per-
manent solution by the end of
the new lease agreement.
"In the future, we want to
have some of these facilities paid
for and use tax money for parks
and other items, maybe roads,"
Commissioner Sam Johnson
said. "We want to have a feasi-
bility 'study completed before'
this lease term is up."
The county operates three
outreach centers: the Lakeland*
Government Center, 930 East


Parker Street; a Northeast Gov-
ernment Center, 3425 Lake Al-
fred Road, Winter Haven; and
the Lake Wales Branch, 642
State Road 60 West.
The centers offer services
from county probation, Healthy
Families Polk, the property ap-
praiser, public defender, state
attorney, tax collector and super-
visor of elections' voter registra-
tion office.
Additionally, the centers
serve as branch court houses.
The Lakeland Government Cen-
ter hears county civil cases; ac-
cepts filing of general civil, small
claims cases, and circuit civil; ac-
cepts applications for marriage
licenses and U.S. passports; and
handles county criminal and
traffic court cases filed by the
Lakeland police department.

DOT Holding Forums

About Long-Range Goals


The Florida Department of
Transportation is hosting re-
gional forums to introduce the
public to the Florida Transporta-
tion Plan (FTP), which estab-
lishes long-range goals that will
guide the investment of over
$100 billion in Florida's trans-
portation system over the next
20 years.
The Florida Department of
Transportation is updating this
plan to respond to new trends
and challenges to meet Florida's
future transportation mobility
needs. The FTP is the plan for
all of Florida. Implementation of
the FTP depends on the collec-
tive efforts of many entities.
Though the DOT has princi-
pal responsibility for statewide
movement of people and goods, it
shares responsibility with other
public and private interests in
addressing system safety; pres-
ervation, and local and metro-


politan mobility needs.
The regional forums will give
citizens an opportunity to learn
about the 2025 FTP development
process and to provide input on
identifying and addressing key
issues directly related to Flori-
da's transportation system.
The 2025 FTP regional forum
will be held:
In Sebring on Tuesday, May
10, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the High-
lands County Agricultural Cen-
ter, 4509 George Blvd.
In Tampa on Thursday, May
12, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the FDOT
District 7 Office Auditorium,.

In Orlando on Tuesday, May

Stetson Holding Elder

Consumer Fraud Forum


Stetson University College of
Law's Elder Consumer Protec-,
tion Program will continue its
consumer protection seminars
around Tampa Bay in May,
warning elderly citizens about
frauds and scams.
The focal point of this month's
events is an Elder Consumer
Fraud Forum May 26 featuring
several speakers and organiza-
tions handing out information on
consumer fraud.
The Elder Consumer Protec-
tion Program has been present-
ing programs around Florida
with warnings about various
frauds and scams.
"So many times, Florida's eld-
ers are targets of various con-
sumer scams. The more each of
us knows about these different
frauds and scams, the better
able we are to protect ourselves
from becoming victims," said Re-
becca Morgan, head of the pro-
gram and Stetson's Boston Asset
Management Faculty Chair in
Elder Law.
The Elder Consumer Fraud
Forum will go from 1:30-4:30
p.m. May 26 in the Great Hall of
Stetson's Gulfport campus. Stet-
son's Elder Consumer Protection
Fellow Bronwyn Stanford, a for-


mer prosecutor, will lead that
event and the following:

Funding for the program was
provided in part by the U.S. Ad-
ministration on Aging, and the
presentations are part of Stet-
son's work under a federal grant
to educate the elderly on con-
sumer fraud prevention. Stetson,
a national leader in the field of
elder law, has partnered with
the Florida Attorney General's
Office, AARP and the legal com-
munity to increase public aware-
ness of consumer fraud against
senior citizens.

Alarms With Police Department


Alarm users within the city
limits of Bartow must register
all alarms, including smoke/fire,
audible, burglary, robbery,
panic, medical, water flow, si-
lent, and/or other systems with
the Bartow Police Department.
The City of Bartow estab-
lished a False Alarm Ordinance
in 1999 to help eliminate the
thousands of false alarms that
Bartow police and Bartow fire-
fighters are being dispatched to,
a BPD spokesman said. In 1998,
the Bartow Police and Fire De-
partments responded to 1,596
alarm calls only two were
valid.
Registration forms, along with
information concerning the city's
Alarm Awareness 'Program, may


be picked up at the Bartow Po-
lice Department, Bartow Fire
Department, and City Hall. The
registration form supplies infor-
mation about homes and busi-
nesses thai is necessary for the
police and fire department.
It is the responsibility of any
home and business with an
alarm to update their informa-
tion as soon as any change oc-
curs, the spokesman said. If the
Bartow Police or Fire Depart-
ment is dispatched to a home or
business due to a false alarm,
charges may be incurred.

A Time To Remember


The Greatest Generation


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

Make Laws, Not Amendments


One of the major issues in the
2005 legislative session was
changing the procedure for
putting citizen initiative amend-
ments to the Florida Constitution
on the ballot.
It's a good idea.
There is a populist appeal to
letting citizens rewrite the docu-
ment which shapes their govern-
ment. It has a Town Hall Meeting
feel, the idea that the governed -
the Little People can reweave
the very fabric of their govern-
ment.
The problem is that we Little
People have not been the ones
rewriting our Constitution. In


recent years, the impetus has
come from well-heeled interests,
paying professional petition cir-
culators to gather signatures.
The result has been bad
amendments, from the poorly
thought out, like the one that
mandated High Speed Rail with-
out consideration of a funding
source, to the patently absurd, an
amendment regulating the size of
pens in which pregnant pigs can
be kept.
The proposal that will go to
the voters would require a 60 per-
cent majority vote to amend the
Constitution. It is a step in the
right direction.


Several years ago, I proposed
another idea, one that would
allow the citizens to propose state
laws, in addition to amendments
to the Constitution.
My proposal would set a high-
er requirement for proposing
amendments to the Constitution,
but a lower requirement for sub-
mitting statutes to the voters.
Laws enacted by citizen initia-
tive, I suggested, could only be
rescinded by a super-majority
vote of the Legislature, and per-
haps only after a period of two
years.
A few months after I proposed
that concept, a member of the


Libertarian Party stopped by
the office to ask if (1)I was
serious about the idea and (2) I
would attend a convention of
the party to pitch it.
My responses: (1) I serious-
ly thought it was a good idea,
but didn't figure it would
stand a chance with the
Legislature, and (2) I didn't
think the endorsement of the
Libertarian Party would
increase its chances of pas-
sage.
The idea is still there, float-
ing around in political cyber-
space.
Like it? Grab it and go for it.


America and much of Europe are cele-
brating the beginning of the end of World
War II.
Victory in Europe V-E Day preced-
ed by only a few months the surrender of
Japan.
The end was in sight for World War II,
the unthinkable conflict that followed the
War to End All Wars, which became
known as World War I.
God willing, there will be no World War
III.
Tom Brokaw called the young men and
women who fought World War II "The
Greatest Generation." It is a fitting honor.
Nearly sixty-four years ago, after the
attack on Pearl Harbor brought the United
States, however unwillingly, into World
'War II, the United States experienced an
unprecedented spirit of patriotism.
Young men dropped out of college to
volunteer for the armed forces.
Boys and yes, they were boys, not yet
men dropped out of high school to vol-
unteer for the armed forces, many of them
lying about their ages.
Women, though barred from combat,
volunteered for and served capably in a
number of military assignments, while on
the homefront, "Rosie the Riveter" entered
the job market to support the war effort.
These were not sons and daughters of
privilege; these were young adults who
had been children during the Great
Depression.
A generation later, two generations later,
young Americans ask: "What did they
think they were doing?"
And the answer comes: "You had to be
there to understand it."
And perhaps you did.
There was a sense of patriotism, of
national obligation, never before experi-
enced, not equaled even by the wave of


patriotic fervor that followed Sept. 11,
2001.
The future of the Free World, including
the United States of America, was threat-
ened by Adolph Hitler and his unholy
alliance with Italy and Japan.
Today, the Germans, the Italians, and the
Japanese are our allies. Past animosities
have been put behind us.
Perhaps it is beyond the ability of
today's generation to understand the spir-
it of The Greatest Generation.
But let us resolve that it will not be
beyond the ability of today's generation to
appreciate that patriotism.
The members of The Greatest
Generation are, quite literally, a dying
breed.
Without their patriotism, their heroism,
we might well be speaking a different lan-
guage, saluting a different flag, and far
more frightening, pursuing a government-
mandated commitment to the annihilation
of religious or racial minorities.
The Greatest Generation they are our
heroes.
Chances are you know a few of them.
Express your thanks to them. They
deserve it.

OUR READERS SAY

No Glamour Photos for Crooks


LAKELAND Each time an
extremely notable crime is pub-
lished and the public is besieged
with overwhelming information
regarding an accused violator of
one of society's laws, the media
will talk it to pieces and large
photographs representing glam-
our pictures are pasted on front
pages of most newspapers.
My reason for this is to ask
why are the law-breakers are
given preferential publicity and
when a military .person dies, it


appears they aren't worthy of
more than a photograph the size
of a postage stamp, and that pic-
ture will be lost within pages of
the publication. The death most
times is listed with very little fan-
fare.
It would appear that students
who are preparing for law
degrees are being coached or
taught fashion and cosmetology
courses, to accomplish methods
of providing improved images of
culprits to the. courts, in an


attempt to convince the world the
violator has changed their way of
living.
Just because a person charged,
has improved their mode of
dress, had a haircut and some-
times clean shaven, does not.
improve the results of the way
the public perceives their image.
Present them as they are, ugly
and bad.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

The Disappearing, Lying Bride


I think we have all been led
down the garden path by Jennifer
Wilbanks.
She was the 32-year-old
woman who told a pack of lies.
Yes, lies. First, after disappearing
from the scene and having half of
the county looking for her, she
called the Albuquerque police
department to come and get her.
They went right away and got
her.
After she had been checked
out by the local hospital and no
injuries were found, they turned
her over to her father, who came
on the next plane and took her


home. She arrived at the Atlanta
Airport with a tacky shawl hang-
ing over her face.
At some point, the sheriff's
office and the F.B.I. interviewed
her and broke her down to admit-
ting that the whole thing was a
lie.
What a whopper!
Her father took her home
where, at this writing, she has
remained in seclusion. Word is
emerging from the house that she
and her fiance are still planning
to get married, but she must first
get herself back in control.
Back in control? Hoo ha!


It has since come out in the
Atlanta papers that this isn't the
first time this has happened. She
got right to the point of marrying
another man and then called it
off. I don't know what happened
there, but the man's wife told the
papers all about it.
She also has a police record for
two separate incidents of
shoplifting.
She didn't just pick up a lip-
stick or a stick of gum, she report-
edly stole more than 2,000 worth
of merchandise, more than $1,000
worth each time.
She hasn't come out of her


house yet. I wonder when she
will. I would hate to be a prospec-
tive bride with 14 bridesmaids
waiting in the wings.
I don't imagine they will be
too interested in going through
that again.
The only suggestion I have for
them is to form a club honoring
bridesmaids who have been left
at the altar. They could put on
their dresses and be guests on the
Today show, the Bill O'Reilly
show and every other talk show
and charge for each appearance.

GMC Celebrates Ribbon Cutting


When Michael Holley bought
Big Oaks Buick Pontiac GMC in
February, he decided that the
dealership would be one of Polk
County's largest Pontiac Buick
GMC dealerships.
With the motto "Big City Sav-
ings, Small Town Hospitality,"
he also made a commitment to
his customers that they would be
treated right.
The new dealership, Michael
Holley Pontiac Buick GMC, cele-


. brated a ribbon-cutting on Fri-
day, May 6, that was hosted by
the Greater Bartow Chamber of
Commerce. More than 50 indi-
viduals, including the dealer-

participated in the event.
Holley also owns Michael Hol-
ley Chevrolet in Lakeland, Mi-
chael Holley's New Car Alterna-
tive, and Michael Holley KIA in

Tax Collector's Office History Topic Of

Polk Historical Association Meeting


* It turns out the history of tax
collection in Polk County is a
darn good story, according to re-
cently compiled historical infor-
mation now available through
the Polk County Tax Collector's
website, www.polktaxes.com.
In fact, it is a fascinating look
back through the early records of
Polk County, complete with de-
pictions of the colorful characters
that helped shape our pioneering
days and establish its "Imperial"
moniker.
On Tuesday night, May 10,
the Polk County Historical Asso-
ciation will hold their monthly
meeting at the tax collector's
main office in Bartow.
Tom Sailer, a member of the
group and part-time employee
with the tax collector's office,
will present a program high-
lighting his research on the tax
office.
"Tom has been instrumental
in helping us gather historical
data on the office," Joe Tedder,
Polk County tax collector, said.


"We are happy to host this
group and to formally thank
Tom for his hard work."
"Since I've never published, I
cannot say that I am a histo-
rian," Sailer, a self-professed 'hi-
storian wannabee,' said.
His work is, in fact, now pub-
lished on the tax collector's web-
site, where anyone can go and
read about everything from the
origin of the name "Imperial
Polk County" to the chronologi-
cal history of the tax office, its
early officers, some with familiar
Polk County surnames dating as
far back as 1861, and what is
now believed to be one of the ear-
liest vehicle tags issued in Polk
County.
Sailer spent countless hours
in the Polk County Historical
and Genealogical Library, comb-
ing through local newspapers
and census reports available on
microfilm, as well as hardback
copies of family histories.
"Newspaper research is far
and away the hardest research


to do because it is not indexed,"
Sailer said. "But I received a lot
of help from Joe Spann and his
staff."
The Historical- Library- is lo-
cated in the old county court-
house in downtown Bartow, and
is open to the public Tuesday
through Saturday. Joe Spann is
the library manager and has
been on staff since 1993.
"Sailer's love for the history of
this county is apparent to any-
one who engages in conversation
with him," Dr. Edward Eth-
eredge, current president of the
association, said. "Tom Sailer
served for several years as a
member of our board of directors
and participated actively in all of
our functions.
"The quality of his work is re-
markable and he has contributed
greatly to our knowledge of early
Polk County."
The meeting will be held at
the Bartow tax office, 430 E.
Main Street, beginning at 7 p.m.


Arson Awareness


(Continued from Page 1A)
comply with laws governing
burning.
Meanwhile, Florida's Chief
Financial Officer and State Fire
Marshal Tom Gallagher is urged
citizens to help in preventing
youth from getting involved in
fire play or arson.
"Juvenile fire play and arson
have very costly consequences for
the youths involved, their par-'
ents and their communities,"
Gallagher said. "Even though not
all cases end in arrest espe-
cially when very young children
are involved the consequences
are just as real."
Among the cases investigated
last year by the State Fire
Marshal's Office, Bureau of Fire
and Arson Investigations:
A 4-year-old boy and his 71-
year-old grandmother suffered
third-degree burns after the boy
set fire to a kitten and the burn-
ing kitten set fire to the house.
The boy hid when the fire began
and his grandmother had to
search to find him. Detectives
determined it was not the first
time the boy had played with fire.
A 7-year-old playing with a
road flare in his bedroom caused
a fire that severely damaged his
home. The family had no insur-
ance.
A 5-year-old and an 18-
month-old left alone in an apart-


ment died after the older child
found a lighter, began playing
with it and started a fire.
The State Fire Marshal's
Office emphasizes education for
elders and children.
The department's "Safe House
Mouse" program offers tips for
kids and suggestions, for parents
and teachers to share practical
advice on how to prevent and
escape fire. That program can be
found at
http://www.fldfs.com/SFM/SafeH
ouse/index.html. And, the State
Fire Marshal's Office has created
fire-safety bookmarks specifical-
ly, targeting third-graders.
* "Parents should not underesti-
mate their children's curiosity
about fire," Gallagher said.
Parents, guardians and teach-
ers should teach children respect
for fire, Gallagher said, and
offered the following tips:
Keep matches and lighters
out of children's reach and sight.
Never play with matches or
lighters in front of children.
Teach, children to tell an
adult if they find matches or a
lighter.
Teach children to tell an
adult if they see someone playing
with matches or a lighter.
Teach them how to dial 911.
For older children, parents
should point out some hard facts.
Arson is a crime, punishable by


jail time and fines. If they com-
mit arson at school, they could be
expelled. If someone dies or is
injured, they could be charged
with murder or attempted mur-
der.
The State Fire Marshal's
Office supports and participates
in several counties' Juvenile
Firesetting Intervention and
Prevention Projects that aim to
help turn-around young arson-
ists. The April 2005 issue of the
FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin
features a cover' article on juve-
nile arson.
Among the more than 2,200
fires that the State Fire
Marshal's Office ruled as arson in
2004, 69 Floridians died, 32 were
injured and more than $50 mil-
lion in property was damaged.
Nationwide, children under
the age of 18 are responsible for
about half of all arsons. Further,
arson has the highest rate of
juvenile involvement of all seri-
ous crimes. Of the 454 arson
arrests state arson detectives
made last year, 159 were juve-
niles.
The Bureau of Fire and Arson
Investigations is a law enforce-
ment branch of the Division of
State Fire Marshal thaf assists
other state and local fire and law
enforcement agencies in the
investigation of fires of suspi-
cious origin.


Life is action and passion; therefore, it is required of a man that lie should share the passion and
action of his time at peril of being judged not to have lived.

Polk County Medical Associa-

as World Asthma Awareness
Month and encourage people to
learn more about the chronic ill-
ness that affects an estimated 20
million people nationwide.
"Asthma is a disease that af-
fects the lungs, causing inflam-
mation which results in wheez-
ing, coughing and breathless-
ness. Our current treatment of
asthma is extremely effective
and easy to administer," said Dr.
Sergio B. Seoane, local pul-
monologist and president-elect of
PCMA. "Asthma affects at least
seven percent of the population
in the United States. It is the
most common chronic childhood
disease, and the prevalence of
childhood asthma in the United
States has increased over 40 per-
cent in recent years."
Proportionately more children
than adults and more women
than men have asthma. This
chronic illness tends to run in
families and asthma attacks can
be life-threatening. Exposure to

can "trigger" an asthma attack.
"School' absenteeism, child-
hood hospitalizations, and long-
term illness can be avoided if
asthma sufferers avoid their
asthma attack triggers and take
their medication as prescribed,"
according to Dr. Ayanna Rolette,
pediatrician with Lakeside Pedi-
atrics and PCMA member. "Chil-
dren of smokers and children
with allergies are more likely to
suffer asthma attacks."
Dr. Daniel Haight, director of
the Polk County Health Depart-
ment said, "Asthma should be
taken seriously and can be con-
trolled by following a medical
management plan and by avoid-
ing contact with triggers. Those
suffering from asthma should
see their doctor regularly and
take their asthma medication as
prescribed."

Local Model Aviation Event

Ends With Closest Finish Ever


* Top Gun, one of the largest
model aviation events in the
world, drew to a close at the
Lakeland Linder Regional Air-
port on Sunday, May 1, with
the closest finish in many
years.
- Among all five classes, the
:final order was determined
:from the last flight leaving
-everyone in the edge of their
:eats as the final series of ma-
'neuvers were flown.
"Just as in full scale compe-
'ition, the slightest mistake in
:any of 10 different maneuvers
fcan make the difference in the
final score which determines
the champion," said Frank Ti-
5ano, Top Gun contest director
:aind promoter.
Each aircraft at Top Gun is
first judged on the construc-
:*tion, finish and markings as it
relates to its full-scale counter-


part. This is referred to as
static judging. This is an exact-
ing process, and accounts for
one half of the total score.
"Each aircraft represents
hundreds, and sometimes even
thousands of hours of painstak-
ing effort just to compete at
Top Gun," Tiano said.
Once each pilot has com-
pleted static judging, the fly-
ing portion of the competition
begins. There are four rounds
of flying with the worst round
being thrown out. At that
point, the average of the three
rounds of flying added to the
static score to determine the
winner in each class.
The top prize is "Mr. Top
Gun," the pilot with the high-
est combined static and flying
scores of all the classes.
Thousands in cash prizes
were awarded along very spe-


cial trophies for each class
through third place. There also
were a host of additional
awards for special recognition
in many areas. More than $25,
0000 in cash and trophies were
awarded.

tion, contact Frank Tiano in

was the "Throwin' Bartowan,"
Lindsay Littlejohn, who fanned
nine Hawk hackers and held the
Hawks hitless in five perfect in-
nings of work.
Jerrica Sanchez stepped up to
finish the game in the final two
innings and struck out three
Birdie batters while allowing
two hits in the top of the sev-
enth.
Those hits allowed the Lady
Jackets to end the game in style,
with a lightning quick, game
ending 4-6-3 double play Staci
Fernandez to "Itty Bitty" Britta
Giddens, who rifled the ball to
Rachel Jackson at first with
plenty of time to spare.
"That was the best double
play we've had in four years,"
said the "Itty Bitty" one about
the play.
Bartow had seven hits in the


game, with Elizabeth Howell
racking three RBIs and Jackson,
two. Whitney Little was the only
Buzzer batter with two hits,
while Giddens, Littlejohn and
"The Big One" Kara Rutenbar
had one base hit apiece.
The win was an easy one for
Bartow, but head Coach Glenn
Rutenbar knows the competition
is going to heat up.
"I don't know a lot about
Groveland, but they have a good
record (23-5). It's going to get
tougher here on out," he said.
"And Auburndale won theirs. We
could wind up seeing them
again."
The game will be broadcast lo-
cally only on WWBF AM 1130.
Due to FHSAA regulations, no
Internet coverage is being pro-
vided.


Jackets' Season Ends In Crazy,

Rain-Delayed District Semi-Final


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

Sometimes, in baseball, any-
thing and everything imaginable
can happen on the field.
When M.J. Wilson scores four
runs on back-to-back-to-back
doubles and Lake Wales senior
John Church only needs seven
minutes and one hit to effec-
tively end a 22-hour long District
12 semi final contest on a field
coated with kitty litter, it's safe
to say that anything can and'al-
ready has happened.
With Bartow clinging to a one
run lead in the top of the sev-
enth inning, heavy rains turned
the dirt at Charlie Fountain
Field at Kathleen High School
into a muddy mess that even 100
pounds of kitty litter couldn't
save. The game was called
around 7 p.m. on Tuesday and
even after hours of work on the
field, the game was pushed back
to Wednesday at 5 p.m.
Bartow returned to Kathleen
with one out, two men on and a
2-0 count to the batter. Junior
pitcher Jack Murphy intention-
ally walked one and got another
batter to fly out before Church,
who started the game on the
mound and had to leave after al-
lowing five straight Jackets on
base, stepped up and unleashed
the biggest hit of his career, a
two-out, bases-loaded three RBI
double, putting Lake Wales up
by two.
"That's why we play all 21
outs," said Bartow Head Coach
Eric Danapilis. "(Church) came
in and he clutched up and really


came through for them. When
you have a kid like that who's a
senior and clutches up like that,
you've got to give him credit. We
just didn't make the plays
throughout the whole game that
we could have done to put them
away."
The Jackets managed to get
two men on in the bottom of the
seventh, but pitcher Justin
Green prevented any runs for a
9-7 final score, ending the Jack-
et's 2005 season.
Questions surrounded Green,
who had pitched in the first half
of the game on Tuesday as well
as all seven innings in the High-
landers' quarterfinal game on
Monday, but Highlander Head
Coach Jasone DeWitte said he
wasn't worried.
"He came to me in fourth pe-
riod and said 'Coach, I can
throw,' and I knew he was good
to go," DeWitte said.
In their final game, the three
Bartow seniors on the squad
made their presence felt in what-
ever way possible. Outfielder Le-
zon Dixon moved into centerfield
after Joey Manning moved over
to catch for Jack Murphy, where
he made a couple of clutch
catches to keep the score tight.
Senior Cameron Stevens saw
some action in the bullpen, but
was not called on due to the bro-
ken nature of the game.
Meanwhile, Wilson went
down the way you would expect
a senior captain swinging.
Wilson, a Webber Interna-
tional University signee, went
three of four, sending four run-
ners home on three doubles off


the wall.
Brent Delph was 0-1, but led
off three innings with a walk
and scored in all three. Murphy
was 2-3 with a walk, two RBIs
and a double. Matt Davis and
Joey Manning each had singles,
and Josh Ward drove in a run on
a deep fly ball.
It wasn't enough however, as
Highlander senior John Church
hit a bases clearing double, not
10 minutes after restarting the
game on Wednesday. Moments'
later, the Jackets' season was
over, turning thoughts to next
season.
"We've got to start all over.
I've got to figure out who wants
to really play next year and get
it done," Danapilis said. "I've got
to figure out who wants to play
my style of baseball if I'm going
to be here for a while. We have
to execute. That means getting
the hits and the bunts down,
pitchers throwing first pitch
strikes, that kind of stuff. I just
have to find 12 to 13 guys who
are willing to do what it takes
and we'll just go from there."
The Jackets ended the season
with a record of 1,8-8 under the
first-year coach, but Danapilis is
looking for a lot of improvement
next season, especially in dis-
trict and post season play.
"(It was a) solid year but dis-
appointing. It doesn't matter
how many games you win during
the year if you can't win in the
playoffs. We didn't do that, so in
my mind it was disappointing,
and I'm sure it was for the kids
too."

Youth Leadership Bartow Attends

Small Business & Industry Day


The Greater Bartow Chamber
of Commerce Youth Leadership
B:artow Class 8 attended their
Small Business & Industry Day.
: The day began with a stop at
Citrus & Chemical Bank where
the class participated in different
leadership training exercises fol-
lowed by the "Teach Children to
Save" initiative that was facilitat-
ed by Citrus & Chemical Bank
employees Mrytice Young, Pam
Mitchell, Jenny Hudson, Jamie
Orth and Amy Herkel.
; "While today's kids can receive
e-mail through their cell phones
or use the Internet to do their
homework, many don't know the
basics of saving and money man-
agement," said Myrtice Young,
frst. vice-president and market-
ing director for C&C Bank.
"Studies show that people who
learn to save early in life usually
make smarter financial decisions
later. National Teach Children to
Save Day starts kids off on the
right path to saving for their
futuree"
Sponsored by the American
Bankers Association Education
Foundation, National Teach
Children to Save Day is.a day in
April when bankers make presen-
tations in schools across the coun-


try to students in kindergarten
through 12th grade.
After a lunch provided by
Citrus & Chemical Bank, the
class was transported to
PalletOne, Inc. where they got a
first-hand look at industry in
Bartow. The students learned
'that PalletOne is the nation's
largest new pallet manufacturer
and has the largest pallet inven-
tory" and greatest pallet assembly
capacity in the United States.
Additionally the class learned
that Bartow is the corporate
headquarters for the company
that operates 12 facilities in eight
states and employs' over 1,000
people.
The day concluded with a tour
of The Polk County Democrat
conducted by Publisher S.L.
Frisbie, IV. The class learned that
the paper has been in the owner-
ship (Frisbie Publishing Group) of
the same family for four genera-
tions since it was founded in
1931. The company also started a
Fort Meade edition (which is now
the Fort Meade Leader) in 1969.
The Polk County Times was
established in 1996, and The
Lake Wales News was purchased
and brought into the Frisbie
Publishing Company fold in 1998.


Bart6w Ford Company provid-
ed transportation for the day.

PCHD Focusing on Skin


Cancer Awareness in May


Polk County Health Depart-
ment (PCHD) joins the American
Cancer Society during National
Skin Cancer Awareness month,
to remind all Floridians that
skin cancer is the most common
of all cancers and can be pre-
vented.
"We want to raise awareness
about melanoma, a very serious
form of skin cancer, and encour-
age our residents to begin a life-
long habit of regular skin self-ex-
aminations," said Sheryl Cooper,
health education program man-
ager of the Polk County Health
Department..
Melanoma is .often curable in
its early stages. Without early
diagnosis and treatment, mela-
noma may spread to other areas
of the body, such as the lymph
nodes, lungs, liver, brain, or
bones.
The main cause of melanoma
is thought to be related to spend-
ing too much time in the sun,
which results in exposure to ul-
traviolet (UV) radiation. Artifi-
cial sources of UV radiation,
such as sunlamps and tanning
booths, also can cause skin can-
cer.
People with fair skin and who
tend to sunburn easily espe-
cially those with. red or blond
hair may be at greatest risk
because their skin cells have less
melanin (skin pigment). Anyone
who is exposed to large amounts
of sunlight, such as a person who
works outdoors, or who lives in
areas where sunlight is very
strong, is at a higher risk.
The chance of developing
melanoma increases with age,
but it affects all age groups and
is one of the most common can-


cers in young adults. Most skin
cancers appear after age 50, but
the sun's damaging effects begin
at an early age. Therefore, pro-
tection should start in childhood
to prevent skin cancer later in
life.
Whenever possible, people
should avoid exposure to the
midday sun (from 10 a.m. to 2
p.m. standard time or from 11
a.m. to 3 p.m. daylight saving
time). Keep in mind that protec-
tive clothing, such as sun hats
and long sleeves, can block out
the sun's harmful rays. Also, lo-
tions that contain sunscreens
can protect the skin. Sunscreens
are rated in strength according
to a sun protection factor (SPF),
which ranges from 2 to 30 or
higher. Those rated 15 to 30
block most of the sun's harmful
rays.
"Sunblock needs to be applied
often and properly to benefit
from the advertised SPF value.
Initial application should be
done 1/2 hour prior to antici-
pated sun exposure and then
every 2 hours while outdoors,"
states Dr. Stepan Oliva, board
certified dermatologist with
Gessler Clinic and Polk County
Medical Association member. "A
typical adult will need a little
over one ounce (heaping handful)
of sunscreen for full body cover-
age. That means the average
bottle of sunscreen would last
only about one weekend at. the
beach."
