Business Leaders Hear Main


Street Plan; Offer Ideas


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

Business leaders offered sup-
port and ideas regarding a newer,
even more charming Bartow, at
the Chamber's Committee of 100
meeting Thursday.
With the lovely North Carolina
mountain towns, Celebration and
Mount Dora all brought up for
inspiration, the members of the
committee warmed quickly to the
idea of a fashionable downtown
with a mix of retailers, upscale
housing and, of course, restau-
rants.
"You have a crown jewel in
Florida," Jim Duane, Community
Redevelopment Agency executive
director, said. "Bartow could be
one of the finest small towns in
Florida."
Drawing on nostalgia from his
own past, growing up in a small
town with a bustling Main Street
area, Duane asked committee
members to embrace the plan to
make Bartow's Main Street the
"heart of the city."
"All it takes is you, the leaders,
deciding this is what you want for
Bartow," he said.
Like many cities in the sur-
rounding area, Bartow's down-
town has struggled to keep and
create a mix of retailers and
restaurants, especially those
offering some sort of nighttime
entertainment, shopping or din-
ing, but the CRA plan hopes to
change all that.
Currently, Main Street is being
completely streetscaped, at a cost
of $4,619,951, split between the
Florida Dept. of Transportation
and Bartow's CRA.
When the redesign is complet-
ed, Main Street will have two 12-
foot travel lanes with parallel
parking on both sides. Sidewalks
will be rebuilt with decorative


brick surfaces, trees, directional
signage, old fashioned-style
streetlights, and black "street fur-
niture."
But Duane said this is only the
first step. He showed placards of
a proposed townhouse, retail and
restaurant space to be built near
the site of the Talisman, and
other upscale housing proposed
on East Main Street.
"I like the idea of having a
restaurant in the space," commit-
tee member Pam Mitchell said.
"When the Talisman was there, it
brought people to that corner and
into town. That is 'a great corner
for traffic."
Members seemed to like the
idea of more housing, especially
upscale housing in downtown,
and member Barbara Lawn
Newell discussed the idea of
using the second floor of the exist-
ing Main Street buildings.
"Apartments could be on the
second floor of shops, or the own-
ers could at least make it appear
there is someone living there with
curtains or something. When I
drive down Main Street now and
see broken windows, i.t just looks
awful," she said.
In addition to cosmetic
changes, members also discussed
cultural and other activities to
draw in tourists and what was
dubbed the "wandering retired
couple."
With the city's strong perfor-
mances by the adult band and
growing Friday Fest and
Saturday Antique Fair and Main
Street Market, some cultural and
entertainment events do reach
citizens, but committee members
banded around the idea of even
more such as inviting the
Imperial Symphony Orchestra for
performances and forming cultur-
al institutions from members of
the Art Guild and Bartow Garden
Club.


The city's tie to the county,
which has been rumored in the
past to be looking for a new base,
also was discussed.
"The county does not need us,
but we need them very much,"
Mayme Clark, chairman of the
CRA, said.
A major complaint of county
employees and anyone visiting
that area of town has been park-
ing, but a plan is proposed to pur-
chase a trailer park to the west of
the county buildings and erect
temporary parking there, later
building more permanent options.
Bartow city commissioners
have recently begun a parking
garage study with the engineer-
ing firm of Post, Buckley, Schuh
and Jernigan, recommending the
construction 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.
At the close of the breakfast
meeting, members were remind-
ed of the Magic on Main event,
when the new Main Street will be
officially revealed, on Saturday,
Nov. 19.
Additionally, members were
asked to remember the Main
Street merchants, some of whom
have seen a dramatic decrease in
business since the renovations
began.
"I encourage you to adopt a
business," Duane said. "Some of
them are really hurting. They
need your help now and over the
next six months."

Showing a trace of hesitation,
Bartow city commissioners voted
unanimously Monday night to
impose a $45 per year "stormwa-
ter fee" on all homes in Bartow to
pay for drainage improvements.
There was a moment of hesita-
tion before the motion to impose
the fee drew a second, and sever-
al commissioners paused briefly
before voting for the.new fee.
Although called a "user fee"
and not a tax, the fee will be col-
lected on tax bills.
It is projected to raise $639,700
next year the first year it is
imposed and revenues will rise
each year as more homes and
commercial buildings are built.
As proposed to the city com-
mission by a consultant, the
amount would be increased auto-
matically each year, but two com-
missioners opposed the automatic
increases, saying the increases
should be considered by the com-
mission each year.
While all single-family houses
would pay $45 (the rate would be
$33.75 for mobile homes and
apartment units), commercial
property would be charged based
on the amount of impervious sur-
face.
Steve Dutch of the Chastain-
Skillman, Inc., consulting firm,
said that the average Bartow
home has 2,525 square feet of



Early Morning

Fire Destroys

County

Facilities
Early Wednesday morning, at
approximately 12:45 a.m., Polk
County Fire Services responded
to a commercial structure fire at
the Polk County Traffic
Engineering and Operations
facilities located at 3000
Sheffield Road in Winter Haven.
When fire units arrived on
scene, three structures were com-
pletely engulfed in flames.
No injuries were reported, and
early assessments estimate the
damage to be more than $1 mil-
lion.
The Traffic Engineering and
Operations Division serves the
county through the fabrication,
installation, and maintenance of
traffic signals.
This division also is responsi-
ble for the layout and installation
of pavement marking on road-
ways, conducting traffic studies,
and accessing capacities for road-
ways and intersections such as
stop signs and speed limits.
County officials are currently
working to relocate the 43
employees who work in these
facilities in an effort to provide
uninterrupted service to citizens,
a county spokesman said.

Holiday

Garbage

Schedule
Changes in the garbage sched-
ule for the Memorial Day holiday
are planned by both the county
and the City of Bartow.
Landfills will be closed on
Monday, May 30, and there will
be no garbage collection service
in the unincorporated areas of
the county. The Monday pickup
will not be rescheduled.

In Bartow Monday and
Thursday pick-up areas will be
serviced on Tuesday and
Thursday the week of May 30.
Tuesday and Friday areas will be
serviced on Wednesday and
Thursday.
No yard waste will be collected
the week of May 30. That collec-
tion will resume on June 6.
For more information, call the
solid waste department at 534-
0181.


impervious surface, which is sur-
face through which water will not
pass. That figure, 2,525 square
feet, is designated as an
Equivalent Residential Unit, or
ERU. Commercial property will
be assessed based on that num-
ber.
A building with 5,050 square
feet of impervious surface, or two
ERUs, would pay $90.
Owners of vacant land would
pay $11.25 for parcels of up to 25
acres, $22.50 for parcels from 25
to 50 acres, and $45 for parcels of
more than 50 acres.
Owners of property with
approved storm retention basins
would get a discount of 25 to 75
percent, depending on the capaci-
ty of their retention systems.
As proposed by Dutch, the
"stormwater utility" would have
five employees, only one of whom
- the superintendent would
be a new position. The other four
employees would be transferred
from the public works depart-
ment, which presently handles
drainage work, to the stormwater


utility.
Two new pieces of equipment
- a dump truck and a Grade-All
- would be purchased for the
stormwater utility, while the
streetsweeper and a "crew truck"
would be transferred from public
works.
The first year's proposed bud-
get is $640,000:
Salaries and benefits,
$250,000.
Operations, $65,000.
Capital equipment debt,
$95,000.
Maintenance and capital
improvements, $230,000.
Dutch projected equipment
purchase costs at $225,000 for the
Grade-All and $75,000 for the
dump truck.
He listed two initial projects:
improvements to the Hacklake
drainage system, $8 million, and
improvements to drainage on
Park Avenue, $320,000.
Other projects have not yet
been defined, he said.
The new fee would provide a
dedicated funding source for


storm drainage projects, Dutch
said, and revenues could be used
for bonded indebtedness for that
purpose.
He said that having a dedicat-
ed source of money for drainage
would made an additional
$400,000 in public works funds
available for street projects.
Having the stormwater tax
would make the city eligible to
apply for grants from the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District and other
agencies, he said.
He presented figures showing
a range of stormwater fees from
$24 a year in Lakeland to $72 a
year in St. Petersburg and
Dunedin. At $45 per year, Bartow
was eighth highest on the list of
14 cities. Fort Meade charges $51.
A comparison of ERUs the
square footage figure used to com-
pute the tax on non-residential
property showed a range from
1,708 square feet in Dunedin to
5,000 square feet in Lakeland.

Bartow, was killed when he was struck by a train. (Photo by Bartow Fire Dept. Deputy Chief Bobby

Bartow Man Killed


When Hit By Train


George Williams, 49, of
Bartow, was killed Saturday
when he was struck by a train on
Dunbar Street.
Williams, who was deaf, was
walking west on Dunbar shortly
before 1:30 p.m. CSX train
Conductor Jim McKee told police
he was concerned because
Williams was walking toward the
tracks and showed no signs that
he was aware of the train.
McKee gave several loud blasts
of the horn, but Williams didn't
respond, and the train hit him,
knocking him to the side of the
tracks, Bartow Police Officer Max
Kretzer reported. The conductor
stopped the train and found
Williams on the east side of the


tracks.
Randy Williams, who was vis-
iting his uncle's home near the
scene, told police he saw Williams
walking toward the track
between East Magnolia and East
Bay. As soon as he lost sight of
George Williams, he heard the
train brakes lock up, he told
police. He said he had seen the
victim walking in the area on
other occasions.
Polk County EMS was called
and CPR was started by EMS
employees Lori Barberce and
James. Albritton, but Williams
died moments after being taken
from the scene, according to the
police report.
A Life Net Polk helicopter also


was called, landing at Laurel
Street and U.S. Highway 17,
backing traffic up for some time.
Because of Williams' condition,
emergency personnel decided to
transport him to Bartow Regional
Medical Center by ambulance.
Also on the scene was Polk
County Fire Department
Battalion Chief Joe Butler, who
was stopped for the train on Main
Street and saw it go into emer-
gency stop mode.
Acquaintances of Williams
said he also had been hit by a
train a couple of years ago.
Bartow police filed no charges.
CSX Transportation also is inves-
tigating the accident.


New Bartow Facility Named:

Summerlin Park At Wilson Lake


The new park being developed
on the east side of the Bartow
High School campus will be
known as Summerlin Park at
Wilson Lake.
That name was recommended
by the recreation advisory board
after a survey conducted by the
Bartow Chamber of Commerce,
and was approved by the city
commission.
The greatest number of recom-
mendations were to name the
park for Bartow pioneer Jacob
Summerlin, followed by recom-
mendations to name at least part
of the park for the Wilson family.
For decades, the 17-acre par-
cel has been called Wilsons
Pasture, though it has been


many years since livestock were
kept on it.
Summerlin, a wealthy 19th
Century cattleman, gave proper-
ty in Bartow for public education,
for its first two churches, and for
establishment of the county seat
in Bartow.
The largest feature on the
property is a stormwater catch-
basin in the center of the proper-
ty which ranges in size from a
small lake in the rainy season to
an oversize mud puddle in time
of drought.
The park is being developed as
a joint project of the city of
Bartow and the Polk County
school board.
The city will pave an eight-


foot-wide, three-quarter-mile-
long asphalt
walking/jogging/skating track
around the lake, and will provide
antique-style streetlights, bench-
es, and public restrooms. The
school board may build physical
education facilities on the south-
ern end of the property.
A $245,000 state parks grant
is paying for much of the project.
The Bartow Rotary Club will
pay $40,000 to $50,000 for a
gazebo at the water's edge as a
project to commemorate this
year's 100th anniversary of the
founding of Rotary International.
Private sponsorship of other
facilities is under consideration.

active, cooking food, loading it
into their vehicles and delivering
to where ever they find homeless
people.

By LETA WRIGHT

The other night I attended the
production of the play "Grease,"
performed by the Fort Meade
High School Chorus.
I commend Karen Lewis, the
director, for this spectacular per-
formance.
The setting was the 1950s. A
time of bobby sox, saddle shoes,
doodle skirts and black leather
jackets. The 1950s was the era
after World War II and people
were turning away from the sad
time to brighter days of lively
music, school sports and sock
hops in the gym.
SThe girls and boys portraying
the characters of Rydell High
School were well chosen. Each
ne portrayed the parts so effec-
ively.

heard. I know the parents and
grandparents were so proud to
see their young loved ones per-
forming with such gusto. Every-
one must have been just burst-
ing at the seams with pride.
I left the theater bubbling
over with the good evening that I
had watching our own teenagers
in their element. I am so proud
of them.
The volunteers had a big cele-
bration at the train last Tuesday
noon with a covered dish lunch-
eon honoring Olma Hendrick on
his 92nd birthday. Each train ta-
ble was decorated with white
place mats and mixed spring
flowers. The dishes brought in
were beautiful to look at, and so
good to the taste. We do have
good cooks.
During the feast, plaques of
appreciation were given to Caro-

britton for their faithful service
of work all these years.
Just before Olma blew out his
candles, we all made a wish and
sang "Happy Birthday." It was a
joyous occasion.

DONATE TO THE DEWEY E. SMITH LEGAL FUND!
You have an opportunity to strike a blow for freedom by
donating to the Dewey E. Smith Legal Fund. Mr. Smith
has been the victim of vicious politics in the abuse of our
Grand Jury system. Almost no one anymore speaks up
for the interests of taxpayers and the "small people" who
keep this great nation going.
Mr. Dewey E. Smith, along with others, has worked to get
salary reductions of many top-paid county officials and term
limits, etc. For this, he was singled out as no other. There
was nothing in this for Mr. Smith but better government.
Don't let this man be persecuted by letting them lead the
Grand Jury system by the nose. One famous lawyer once
said that he could get a Grand Jury to indict a "ham sand-
wich." Don't let Dewey E. Smith be that "ham sandwich"
because he wanted to do.something about our runaway
government costs.
To give to the Dewey E. Smith Legal Fund, cash or checks,
go to any SunTrust Bank Office and tell them you want to
donate to the Dewey E. Smith Legal Fund, account num-
ber 1000031054819, or mail to SunTrust Bank, 4828 South

The Polk County Democrat


Stormwater Tax Is


A Fair Revenue Source


Bartow's proposed new stormwater tax
is probably as fair a way as any and fair-
er than some to raise more money for
city government.
The fairness comes from the fact that it
would be levied against government prop-
erty, which is exempt from ad valorem
property taxes, as well as against homes
and businesses. The city's consultant pro-
jects that 21.8 percent of the revenue
would come from government agencies.
It also would be levied against churches
and other tax-exempt entities. That is per-
haps an unintended consequence, but
given that the tax will be levied on the size
of buildings and parking lots, it will have
minimum impact on small churches, and
will fall more heavily on larger and pre-
sumably more prosperous churches.

We call it a stormwater tax, because
that's what it is.
Government calls it a "user fee," which
is a politically more palatable term for a
new tax. When you pay an impact fee on
new construction, it's a tax; when you pay
a water and sewer connection fee, it's a tax;
when you pay a stormwater fee, it's a tax.
When the city charges you for electricity,
water, sewer service, and garbage collec-
tion, that is a fee for services or goods you
have received, paid more or less in propor-
tion to your consumption.
When you pay money to cover the oper-
ating costs of government, not in direct
exchange for the value of goods or services
received, that's a tax. There's nothing evil
about that, but let's not pretend that the
stormwater tax is something other than a
tax.

In imposing a stormwater tax, the city, in
the consultant's estimate, will free up
about $400,000 for street projects. That is
because stormwater drainage costs
presently are in the public works depart-
ment budget.
If anything, we suspect that number is a
little low. But even $400,000 is a substantial
increase in the city's funds available for
street work.
That is a "plus" in the stormwater tax
proposal.

Another plus is that by imposing a
stormwater tax, the city would be eligible
to apply for grants from the Southwest
Florida Water Management District and
other agencies.
The revenue could be leveraged in a
way that most other taxes cannot be.

The $45 per home fee represents about
what a one-mill increase in property taxes
would produce. (A house on the tax roll at
$70,000, with $25,000 homestead exemp-


tion, pays taxes of $45 per mill per year.)
When the city commission considers
inevitable increases in ad valorem proper-
ty taxes in the years ahead, it should
remember that the stormwater tax already
in place is roughly the equivalent of one
mill.

Two commissioners expressed opposi-
tion to a provision in the stormwater tax
ordinance that would make automatic
annual increases. They are correct.
Taxes should be increased only when
elected officials face their constituents and
justify the need for additional revenue,
and the source from which it is to come.
The automatic increases in the city's
water and sewer rates make sense; they are
based on bonding requirements and the
fact that the value of water and sewer ser-
vices rises with the cost of living.
A stormwater tax is in a different catego-
ry.

And while the commission probably
doesn't fully appreciate the unpaid advice
it gets from Gerald Cochran at almost
every meeting, the city's most voluble crit-
ic said something that makes sense
Monday night.
He questioned the wisdom of spending
$8 million to upgrade the Hacklake
drainage system in relation to the area
which would get drainage relief.
There comes a point, as the Polk County
commission already has acknowledged,
when it's cheaper to buy a few homes in
harm's way than it is to spend millions of
dollars to protect them from flooding.
Whether or not that is the case with
Hacklake, we do not know. But it's a ques-
tion that needs to be addressed.

Nobody including us, likes to pay high-
er taxes.
But the city must reduce its reliance on
utilities system profits as the primary
source of general fund revenues, and the
stormwater tax is a reasonable place to do
it.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

A Plethora of Aggravation


I could just scream.
Last Saturday I went to the gro-
cery store and put my debit card in
the machine just inside the door to
get some extra cash. I then shopped
for everything dog food, soy
milk, laundry soap, bird seed, and
the usual assortment of odds and
ends. When I got to the check-out, I
had a large assortment of things
that amounted to $97. I looked in
my wallet for my debit card and it
wasn't there. The machine had
eaten it. I had to use my cash to pay
for the groceries. This left me with
$27.... ;
'I tame 'home and called the
VISA number to report that my
card w\as in the machine at the gro-
cery store and I would need a
replacement. The lady at the bank


said she would cancel my card,
after checking it to make sure no
one else had used it.
They hadn't.
She said she would send me a
new one, which would arrive in
five to 10 days. I thanked her and
hung up.
Sunday afternoon when I
logged on to write my weekly col-
umn, I received a notice that my e-
mail was being held for non-pay-
ment of iny account and I would
first have to make a payment
before I could send anything to
anyone.
I couldn't believe it. I have had
my Internet provider automatically
charge my e-mail on a monthly
basis so I wouldn't forget it.
I do forget things once in a


while, so sue me!
I realized that my e-mail was
charged to my VISA account. I had
no idea what the number of this
account was.
My new VISA card has not yet
arrived and if it doesn't get here
soon, I will have to write checks for
spending money.
I can't find a phone number for
my Internet provider. After wading
through all kinds of instructions for
everything except what to do about
this, I am using another one that
my son has installed on this com-
puter.
Sure do hope it works.
The worst thing of all is that I
don't even know who to complain
to.


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

Keep the Faith, Graduates


utorIal


(This column was first pub-
lished in 1983, when our oldest
daughter graduated from Bartow
High School. I hope that the mes-
sage is timeless, and one which
parents of this year's graduates
might like for their youngsters to
hear.)

There are normally only two
ways to get to speak to a bunch of
graduating seniors: either be one
of the top graduates, or get a
prominent job, such as President
of the United States.
My chances of doing either are
about equal.
But I was given the opportuni-
ty to speak to a small group of
Polk County high school gradu-
ates last week, thanks to an invi-
tation from the school superin-
tendent, and it was both an honor
and a challenge to try to find
words worthy of that occasion.
High school graduates aren't
interested in hearing lectures,


and they are doubly uninterested
in hearing how I used to walk 10
miles through the snow to get to
school when I was their age.
Besides, that story rings a little
hollow in Central Florida.
But I did have a brief message,
one born of my own college expe-
rience, and I offer it to any mem-
bers of this year's class who
might find it helpful:

As your teachers have been
preparing you for the academic
challenges which lie ahead, your
families, your churches, your
communities have been trying to
prepare you for one of the biggest
steps in your life the step when
you leave home and achieve a
greater degree of independence,
whether in employment, in mar-
riage, or in college.
'We have tried to instill in you
certain values. Not all parents are
in full agreement on what those
values should be, but most of us


have tried to pass along to you
the faith we have in a Supreme
Being, however we may perceive
Him to exist; we have tried to
pass along a belief in the value of
honest effort, and in the worth of
every person.
College is a time when your
basic values will be challenged.
Peer pressures are nothing new
for you; you've already felt the
pressure of the crowd in matters
of sexual conduct, drug use, and
other areas where -tough deci-
sions have to be made.
But in college you will find
other basic values challenged, not
only by your fellow students, but
by your faculty. You will be chal-
lenged to defend if only to
yourself your personal ethics,
your beliefs.
Some in college will tell you
that any faith, any belief that
can't be proved in the laboratory
or verified by mathematic com-
putation isn't valid.

Forty-Five Years Ago


First Lieutenant Alex Fanning
(Buddy) Hatton, who was an out-
standing student at Summerlin
Institute here until his family
moved to Bradenton in 1941, was
killed over Italy April 28, accord-
ing to a War Department message
received by his parents, Mr. and
Mrs. T.T. Hatton, now of Orlando.
Page One headline: "Capt.
Billy Tomasello Praised by
Marines in His Command."

Forty Years Ago

Contract negotiations were
completed this weekend at
American Agriculture Chemical
Co., but are still in progress at
Swift & Co.
Twenty-two students now
attending Union Academy have
declined to exercise their option
to stay here, and will attend
Bartow Senior High next Fall.
Nineteen of the Negro students
will be juniors and three will be
seniors. They live in West Bartow
and other areas outside the UA
attendance zone, which encom-
passes only East Bartow. All three
White students living in the UA
zone have applied to remain at
BHS.
Bettie Ann Huff, a 19-year-old
freshman at the University of
South Florida, was named Miss
Teenage Bartow Saturday night.
In the junior competition, Bettie
Cantrell, 11, was selected Little
Miss Bartow.
Two Bartow High School
seniors who shared exact point
totals in the annual Diversified
Cooperative Training program
have shared top honors at the
annual DCT banquet. They are


Brian Raulerson, an employee of
The Democrat, and Mary Smith,
who works at the county school
board office.

Thirty-Five Years Ago

Bonnie Hunt, an 11-year-old
sixth grader at Bartow
Elementary School, will reign as
queen over events at the 1970
Dixie Youth League World Series
here Aug. 14 to 22.
Page One photo shows a heav-
ily battered overpass on U.S.
Highway 17 near the Polk-
Hardee County line where a for-
mer Bartow man was killed early
Friday morning. The reinforced
concrete buttress bears the scars
of many crashes. It has been a
hazard since it was built in 1930.

Thirty Years Ago

Bartow has a new city manag-
er today a woman, for the first
time in the city's history Miss
Louise Marquis, who has been
the right hand assistant to three
city managers, agreed to take the
job on an interim basis between


the forced leave-taking of C.T.
Clark, and the arrival of a new
manager, who is to be chosen
within the next few weeks.

Twenty-Five Years Ago

A rash of automobile accidents
on the weekend, as reported by
Bartow police, included a 4-year-
old boy severely injured when hit
by a car; seven other injuries, all
apparently minor; and damage to
a total of two bicycles and 12
autos and trucks.
Polk County School Supt.
Homer K. Addair announced that
he would not recommend A.A.
Bretz for reappointment as prin-
cipal of Floral Avenue
Elementary School. A flood of
PTA members, infuriated by the
news, began an intensive drive to
have Bretz returned to the office.
In a surprise move at the next
county board meeting, Addair
recommended that Bretz be reap-
pointed until Jan. 31.
Five Bartow and Fort Meade
members of the Florida National
Guard are among 4,000 guards-
men now in or on the way to help


restore order in riot-torn Miami.
Units from all over the state have
been mobilized since blacks,
enraged my a jury verdict in
Tampa freeing four white police-
men charged with beating a black
man to death, went on a rampage
in attacking whites in the Liberty
City area. Local guardsmen of the
53rd Infantry brigade, which was
called up, are Maj. S. L. Frisbie,
IV, Capt. Steve Mason, Capt. Jim
Burby and Pvt. Sheryl Barber of
Bartow, and Sgt. Joanita M.
Nellenbach of Fort Meade.

Twenty Years Ago

George W. Harris, Jr., president

That's baloney.
I urge you to reject the notion
that anybody you'll meet in col-
lege, whether student or faculty,
has better judgment than you in
matters of personal faith and
beliefs.
As you go out on your own,
it's time to examine the beliefs of
your youth. But do your own
examining, make your own deci-
sions.
It's great to march to the beat
of a different drummer; from
such independence can spring
greatness and personal satisfac-
tion.
But you and you alone must
choose the beat to which you'll
march. No one else is capable -
no one else is worthy of cast-
ing aside the faith and the values
which you now hold.
I have only one other thing to
say to you on behalf of your par-
ents: Congratulations, and good
luck kids; we love you.

Progress Energy Seeking

Base Rate Increase


Progress Energy Florida filed
a request with the Florida Public
Service Commission (PSC) for a
new base rate plan beginning-
Jan. 1.
The company is seeking to in-
crease base rates by roughly
$206 million annually to support
new power plants, increase the
storm reserve fund and better
reflect the costs of providing reli-
able service to customers in one
of the fastest-growing regions of
the country. If approved, the in-
crease would raise a monthly
residential customer bill of 1,000
kilowatt-hours by $3.79, or about
four percent.
"In order to meet the growing
electricity demands of our cus-
tomers, and to maintain the su-
perior reliability they expect, we
must increase our base rates,"
said Bill Habermeyer, Progress
Energy Florida president and
CEO.
Progress Energy has added
350,000 new retail customers
and more than one-third of its
current power plant capacity


during the last decade, while the
company's current base rates are
more than nine percent lower
than in 1994. Base rates were
also lowered in 2002.
A Progress Energy spokesper-
son said the company intends to
continue the substantial invest-
ments made during the last four
years to provide superior reli-
ability and meet the challenges
of customer growth, as well as
increased per-person usage of
electricity. The cost of generat-
ing, transmitting and distribut-
ing electricity and providing cus-
tomer service has increased dra-
matically over the last decade.
The PSC has scheduled public
hearings on Progress Energy's
filing in July in Ocala, St. Pe-
tersburg and Clearwater and
technical hearings in September
in Tallahassee. The commission
will rule on the issue in late
2005.
Progress Energy will post a
summary of its rate case filings
on its Web site, http://www.pro-
gress-energy.com.


Edward Jones, a financial
services firm, has been ranked
first in the J.D. Powers and As-
sociates' annual survey of cus-
tomer satisfaction among full-
service investing.
"I'm thrilled about our place-
ment on the J.D. Power and As-
sociates ranking," Douglas E.
Hill, managing partner of Ed-
ward Jones, said. "We are com-
mitted to providing the highest
level of service to our clients.
Everything we do is focused on
building and maintaining strong
relationships."
The 2005 satisfaction study
was conducted in January and
February. The results were
based on responses from more
than 6,600 investors. The factors
considered include integrity, in-
formation, account management,
cost and customer service.

tives is Shane K. Nelson of Bar-
tow.

sharing joys and sorrows and
learning to recognize mental ill-
nesses as brain disorders that
may have environmental trig-
gers.
This group will keep members
informed about upcoming NAMI
activities for both family mem-
bers and their mentally ill loved
ones.
The new Lake Wales group
will meet May 23 at 10 a.m. in

Polk Health Department To

Participate IN CDC Assessment


Polk County Health Depart-
ment in cooperation with the
Florida Department of Health
and the Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention (CDC) will
be conducting a National Public
Health Performance Standards
assessment.
This assessment will identify
local public health system
strengths and areas for system
improvement.
The local public health system
includes all public, private, and
voluntary organizations, as well
as individuals and associations
that contribute to the delivery of
public health services within
Polk County.
"This assessment will help en-
hance coordination and collabo-
ration among public health sys-
tem partners in our community,"
Dr. Daniel Haight, director of
the Polk County Health Depart-
ment, said. "This important en-
deavor will ultimately lead to a
public health system improve-
ment plan that benefits all
county residents. We encourage


our community health partners
who play important roles in pro-
moting and preserving the
health of the citizens of Polk
County to provide input into this
process."
All of Florida's 67 county
health departments are coordi-
nating this effort by utilizing the
Center for Disease Control and
Prevention's (CDC's) National
Public Health Performance Stan-
dards Program (NPHPSP) as-
sessment instrument.
This tool, developed by CDC
and seven national public health
organizations, is designed
around the CDC's Ten Essential
Public Health Services which are
to:
Monitor the health of the
community
Diagnose and investigate
health problems and hazards
Inform, educate, and em-
power citizens about health is-
sues
Mobilize partnerships to
identify and solve health prob-
lems


Farmers in the Southeastern
United States can now learn
about changes in seasonal cli-
mate patterns earlier than ever,
thanks to a new long-term fore-
casting system developed by the
Southeast Climate Consortium
(SECC), a partnership among six
universities in Alabama, Florida
and Georgia.
SECC researchers are using
data that has been collected
daily for the past 50 years from
214 weather stations in Ala-
bama, Florida and Georgia to
make county-by-county forecasts
that farmers can view on the
Internet. The SECC, which pro-
duces its forecasts at Florida
State University in Tallahassee,
has issued the first in a series of
quarterly forecasts aimed at
helping farmers reduce risks to
their crops and increase their
odds of a successful growing sea-
son.
The SECC's new spring out-
look indicates that unseasonably
heavy rain in March has re-
charged soil moisture, thereby
allowing crops to flourish.
Recent heavy rains have also
reduced the risk of wildfires this
season, the SECC spring outlook
said. The outlook is based on the
Keetch Byram Drought Index,
which provides a monthly as-
sessment of wildfire risks in the
Southeast.
"The SECC approach to fore-
casting is based on climate
phases and works great during
an El Nifio or a La Nifia phase,
but it's less useful during what's
called a neutral phase," said
David Stooksbury, a SECC re-
searcher and state climatologist
at the University of Georgia in
Athens.
"For the past two years, the
Southeast has been in a neutral
phase," said Jim O'Brien, direc-
tor of the Center for Ocean-At-
mospheric Prediction Studies at
FSU. "People often assume that
a neutral phase will bring aver-
age weather."


But, he said, that's not true.
"Weather can be all over the
place from dry to wet or aver-
age in a neutral phase. Still,
there's currently no indication of
drought this summer, so chances
are good that crops will have
adequate moisture," he said.
Stooksbury also said that,
with the variability associated
with day-to-day weather during
the neutral phase, a cold spell or
two is still possible across much
of the Southeast.
SECC's Web site, http://agcli-
mate.org, is available to the pub-
lic and provides monthly fore-
casts of rainfall and temperature
for all counties in Alabama, Flor-
ida and Georgia.
It also allows farmers in some
counties to get personalized pre-
dictions of the probability that
their yields for peanuts, potatoes
and tomatoes will be good, aver-
age or poor. Users can tailor
their crop yield forecasts based
on the soil type of their land,
whether or not they irrigate and
their average yield in the past.
The Web site's highly specific
forecasts are important because
what a producer is experiencing
frequently is quite different than
what's happening in neighboring
counties, said John Bellow, an
SECC extension specialist at
FSU.
"We hope that more growers
will use our Web site when they
plan their planting and harvest-
ing, and prepare for freezes,"
said Clyde Fraisse, an extension
specialist and SECC researcher
at the University of Florida's In-
stitute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, or UF/IFAS, in Gaines-
ville. "Growers also can use it to
link to other information about
climate, crop management and
crop insurance."
SECC member institutions
are the University of Florida,
Florida State University, Uni-
versity of Miami, University of
Georgia, Auburn University and
University of Alabama at Hunts-

Polk Museum Sets Free Reception


Polk Museum of Art will open
new exhibitions.
The public is invited to cele-
brate these exhibitions at a free
community reception on Sunday,
May 22, from 2 to 4 p.m.
During the reception, Dr. and
Mrs. August Freundlich will
speak about their collection of
graphic works. The reception
will include refreshments and
live entertainment.
Exhibitions at the museum:
From the Good Earth: Ce-
ramic Artworks from the Perma-
nent Collection, through July 24
in the Dorothy Jenkins Gallery.
This exhibition brings to-.
gether dozens of objects from five
continents and more than 2,000
years of human activity to pre-
sent the similarities and differ-
ences in the construction and use
of ceramic objects from these
many cultures.
Included are Pre-Columbian
figurines and vessels, 20th cen-
tury Japanese bowls and flower
bottles, 7th century Korean jars
and warming stands, Zulu beer
pots, French, English, Spanish,
and Italian bowls and plates
from the 16th-18th centuries,
and contemporary American
sculptures and vessels.
From the Good Earth is the
first exhibition at the Polk Mu-


seum of Art that brings together
all five areas of its permanent
collection. Perhaps more than
vany other material, clay has
been widely used across the con-
tinents for thousands of years.
Ancient peoples quickly
learned shaping, firing and glaz-
ing techniques that turn mere
mud into functional, ritual, or
purely aesthetic objects.
On June 21 at 10:30 a.m., Cu-
rator Todd Behrens will conduct
a tour of this exhibition. Light
refreshments will be available
prior to the tour, which is free
with museum admission.
Drawn from Life: Works on
Paper from the August L. and L.
Tommie Freundlich Trust,
through July 24 in the Emily S.
Macey Gallery.
The Freundlich Trust in-
cludes drawings and other works
on paper by many of the most
important American artists of
the early to mid 20th century.
Drawn from Life consists of
nearly 60 artworks by artists
that include six members of "The
Eight" Arthur B. Davies, Wil-
liam Glackens, Robert Henri,
George Luks, Everett Shinn, and
John Sloan as well as Milton
Avery, Peggy Bacon, George Bel-
Slows, Thomas Hart Benton,
Charles Burchfield. John


Steuart Curry, Stuart Davis,
Dorothy Dehner, William Grop-
per and others.
As in Europe, artists in the
United States at the turn of the
20th century were struggling to
find styles that suited the faster
pace of modern life.
In 1908, under the leadership
of Robert Henri, a group of eight
artists presented an exhibition
at Macbeth Gallery in New York
as a protest against the formal
constraints of the academic style
that still dominated the Ameri-
can art world.
The group's styles and sub-
jects were diverse, but they
pointed to different solutions to
the question of what a modern
American style was. Most of the
artists in this exhibition either
played a role at the beginning of
this transformation of American
art or helped redefine it in suc-
ceeding generations.
Museum hours are Tuesday
through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5
p.m., and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.
Admission is $5 for adults, $3
for students, and free for mem-
bers and children 5 and younger.
Admission is free to everyone
on Saturday from 10 a.m. to
noon.

As a kick-off event for Na-
tional Public Works Week (May
16-22) the Polk County Board of
County Commissioners will team
up with Eagle Ridge Mall to edu-
cate citizens on the work done by
its public works employees.
The public is invited to come
out and meet Polk County's pub-
lic works employees during the
weekend of May 21 and 22, both
inside and outside the mall with
informational displays and an
outdoor equipment viewing
area.

available from County Public
Works booths and prizes from
mall merchants and local busi-
nesses throughout the weekend.
On Saturday, radio station
WPCV will be having a live re-
mote during the event with DJ
Sarah Michaels.
Many of the things people
take for granted like trash be-
ing disposed of properly, con-
sumption of drinking water,
paved roads and working traffic


signals are some of the many
functions provided by public
works employees.
The objective of the mall ex-
hibit is to increase public aware-
ness of the county's public works
professionals' contributions as
well as- enlighten the public
about the duties, practices and
goals of the county's public
works departments.
Public works professionals in-
clude those who manage water,
sewer, public transportation and
refuse removal systems as well
as those responsible for main-
taining public buildings and
grounds.
Participating offices include:
County Engineer, Fleet Manage-
ment, Leisure Services, Natural
Resources, Roadway Mainte-
nance, Neighborhood Services
Administration, Solid Waste Di-
vision, Traffic Engineering and
Operations, Transit Services,
Transportation Administra-
tion, Transportation Engineer-
ing, Polk Transportation Plan-


ning Organization, Utilities Op-
erations, Utilities Customer
Service, Utilities Technical Serv-
ices and Neighborhood Partner-
ships.
Eagle Ridge Mall merchants
such as Sbarro Restaurant, Bath
& Body Works, Gray Fox and
Get-Away Travel will be giving
away prizes.
Local Polk County businesses
also are joining in the fun by of-
fering prizes' throughout the
weekend such as The Lakeland
Center, Chalet Suzanne Restau-
rant, Historic Bok Sanctuary,
Explorations V Children's Mu-
seum, The Polk Museum of Art,
and The Polk Imperial Sym-
phony Orchestra at the staging
area.
Shoppers who visit all the
booths will have their names en-
tered in a drawing for the
prizes.

Bank, said.
Tampa Bay businesses were
honored recently at the inaugu-
ral event.
Businesses were chosen for
their innovative workplace prac-
tices.
According to one C&C associ-
ate, "As an example of C&C's
dedication to its employees, they
provided free day care services


at our Bartow office for those of
us with children while the
schools were closed due, to hurri-
canes."
With 214 employees, C&C
Bank competed in the "Biggest"
category for businesses with
more than 100 employees. The
winners were selected based
upon employee measurement of
40 attributes known to drive em-
ployee engagement.
George Harris, CEO, said,
"We are pleased to have received
these accolades from our employ-
ees."

Prepare For Health During Hur_ cane Season

Prepare For Health During Hurricane Season


As May marks both Mental
Health Awareness Month and
the eve of the 2005 hurricane
season, the Department of Chil-
dren & Families is urging
Floridians to mentally prepare
themselves for what is expected
to be a stressful period.
"The psychological effects of
last year's storms are still being
felt by many Florida residents,"
DCF Secretary Lucy D. Hadi
said. "Once again, DCF is pre-
pared to offer disaster mental
health services if the need arises
again this hurricane season."
The Department's Mental
Health Program Office offers the
following self-help tips for resi-
dents to alleviate hurricane-re-
lated stress:
Have a hurricane prepared-
ness plan for you and your fam-
ily.
Be aware of public emer-
gency resources available in your
community.


Draw on the support of your
family, friends, neighbors and
clergy.
For parents, know that chil-
dren are affected more by your
reactions and that of other
adults to an emergency than the
emergency itself. Be mindful of
your behavior during that time.
Optimal physical and psy-
chological health before and dur-
ing hurricane season are impor-
tant.
Rest, exercise and maintain
a healthy diet. Strive to find a
balance between quiet time and
activity.
Try to maintain personal
and family routines as much as
possible.
Some residents of hurricane-
impacted areas will require help
in coping with storm-related
stress. Ready to follow up on its
work last year, Department staff
is prepared to provide them cri-
sis counseling.


Disaster mental health serv-
ices last year were funded upon
DCF's request by the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency.
Services this year would
again be contingent on FEMA
funding that DCF would seek in
the event of a major storm caus-
ing widespread damage.
Crisis counseling is short-
term help for individuals trying
to recover from traumatic
events.
While working in storm-dam-
aged areas last year, counselors
found many hurricane victims
suffering from increased stress
levels, anxiety, depression and
other conditions requiring more
in-depth help.
DCF responded with Project
Recovery, a program to prevent
or treat situational stress, and
maladaptive and addictive be-
haviors.

BARTOWS FIVE SENIOR SOFTBALL play-
ers will be looking to win the fourth straight state
title for the Lady Jackets. Seniors (from left) Jenna
Allen, Britta Giddens, Staci Fernandez, Lindsay
Littlejohn and Jerrica Sanchez have all had stellar
careers at BHS and are hoping to go out on a high


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

Bartow High School's appear-
ance in yet another state softball
final four might seem like busi-
ness as usual, but with the op-
portunity to set an unheard of
Florida high school record, noth-
ing about the next few days at
Ed Radice Sports Complex in
Tampa will be conventional.
This afternoon the team is
competing for the chance to play
in its ninth straight champion-
ship game. With a victory today,
the Lady Jackets would be
poised to win BHS' sixth softball
title since the program started in
1987.
But for a select group, the
chance to win it all just one more
time isn't just about taking it
home for the Orange and Blue -
it's personal.
None would welcome a possi-
,ble four-peat than senior pitcher
Lindsay Littlejohn. Littlejohn is
expected to ride out the rest of
the season for the Lady Jackets
after 'taking them to three
straight state title games and
getting the "W" in all three. A
fourth victory would not only be
spectacular, it would be unprece-
dented.
BHS Head Coach Glenn Ru-
tenbar said winning four in a
row had been done by a team be-
fore (Naples), but never all un-
der the same pitcher.
"She's (Littlejohn) had only 20
runs scored on her in four years,"
Rutenbar said.
' "Anything can happen on the
field, but when you look at her
percentages you can't help but
feel confident that she will do
well (this post season)."
Two of her fellow seniors, Jer-
rica Sanchez and Britta Giddens
also will have the chance of play-
ing on a state championship
team all four years as well.
Staci Fernandez will be bat-
tling for her third title as a Lady
Jacket.
Meanwhile, senior catcher
Jenna Allen will be gunning for
her first as a position player. Al-
len saw playing time in last


note. For Littlejohn, the senior hurler has the
chance to do something no other high school softball
pitcher in Florida has done pitch in and win four
straight state championships. (Staff photo by
Rustin Dwyer)


year's state title game, but only
as a pinch runner. This time
around, she will be catching Lit-
tlejohn in what could be a his-
toric event, for both the program
and the players.
The five seniors all said they
are confident, but never over
confident. The next two days will
be two of the most important
days of their young athletic ca-
reers, but all said they are
ready.
Fernandez said the secret to
being prepared is simple "We
practice. For three hours. Every
day."
There's a reason why Ruten-
bar coaches a summer travel
team, combined with an intense,
daily practice regimen. The re-
sults, so far, have been apparent
on the field: four state titles in
the past five years and the possi-
bility of another one is just two
victories away.
Rutenbar loves the winning,
but said it's not as easy as it may
seem to maintain a state cham-
pionship level of play. One thing
that is easy, though, is keeping
the girls from getting too full of
themselves.
"We're pretty blunt with them
all season long," he said. "Until
it's all over with, we're not going
to pat them on the back and
praise them too much. We'll let
them know when they do some-
thing right, but well be on them
when they make mistakes."
Another state title would be
nice, the coach admitted, but he
has another reason to take pride
in the squad. Currently, four of
the seniors have accepted schol-
arships to play softball in col-
lege, with another still being
scouted.
Littlejohn has signed, on to
play Division I ball at the Uni-
versity of Florida. Sanchez and
Fernandez won't be far away as
both have signed on to play at
Santa Fe Community College,
also in Gainesville.
Giddens is staying a little
closer to home, attending the
University qf South Florida.
Allen, who has not decided
her college plans yet, has been


scouted by Florida schools and
said she is currently talking with
some of them. Rutenbar said he
has no doubt Allen will be play-
ing somewhere in Florida next
spring.
"Five starters on a team
(signing scholarships) is a high
number. It doesn't sound like it,
but it is," he said.
"It's great, because that's
what softball is all about. That's
why we play to give these
girls a chance to get money for
college. To see all of them do it,
it is special."

.Stormwater Fee


(Continued from Page 1A)
The higher the number, the lower
the impact on non-residential
property.
The four largest sources of the
new tax would be residential
property (35.8 percent), govern-
ment property (21.8 percent),
commercial property (21.5 per-
cent), and industrial property
(10.7 percent).
Other categories, each
accounting for less than 10 per-
cent, are miscellaneous (5.6 per-
cent), institutional (4.0 percent),
and agricultural (0.6 percent).
Commissioner Andy Laurent
challenged Dutch's proposal for
an automatic increase in the
stormwater fee, which would
track the annual increases of 2 to
2.5 percent for water and sewer
charges.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
said the rate could be brought
back to the commission for con-
sideration each year.
Mayor Leo Longworth also
said the commission should
review the rate each year.
"Adding another rate is tough
on people," he said. "It would be


good if we didn't have to have it,
but you can't do that."
"This just gets us started,"
Commissioner Pat Huff said. "It
doesn't solve the problem."
An ordinance creating the
stormwater utility will come up
Sfor final action and a public hear-
ing at the commission's June 6
meeting, and a public hearing on
the amount of the tax will be held
at the June 20 meeting.
That would allow the charges
to be furnished to the tax collec-
tor by June 24 to go on the
November property tax bills.
Gerald Cochran, a frequent
critic of city government, spoke
against the stormwater tax, say-
ing it should be submitted to the
voters for approval.
"'all should vote this down,"
he said.
He also said it would cost less
to buy the houses that flood in
the Hacklake area than to spend
$8 million to improve drainage.

Come play with me, please... Macy is billed as "an angel in a Torti
fur coat" by the SPCA of Polk County. The last remaining kitten from
a litter, she and her brothers and sisters were fostered to a loving
family for several weeks. Now Macy is ready for a new home. In an
interview with SPCA staff, the kitten said, "I am the curious type and
love to be held I purr at the drop of a hat." She is 5 months old and
already spayed, so no there will be no waiting period to take her
home. Prospective "parents" can see her at the SPCA in Lakeland at
5850 Brannen Road South Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. Adoption fees are $70 for dogs and $50 for cats, and include

Germany as part of an ongoing exchange pro-

gram between Bartow and the town of Bochum.


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer
When it comes to interna-
tional relations between the
United States and Germany,
sometimes it's as simple as
what television station you
watch.
After chaperoning nine stu-
dents across Germany for three
weeks, Bartow High School
teacher Cathy Lewis hopes her
students' perceptions of their
European neighbors is more in
line the Travel Channel thah
with the History Channel.
"History has painted
Germany and the German peo-
ple in a certain light, and this
exchange program is doing a
very good job of breaking down
stereotypes.
"It's all so rewarding,
because they're young people
and there's a whole world out
there, and unless they become
exposed to it and in many cases
first hand, they can't possibly
understand that there are dif-
ferent cultures, ways of life and
living, and who's to say which is
the right way," Mrs. Lewis said.
SAs part of a student exchange
program between BHS and
Markische Schule, a school in
Germany, students and faculty
from each school alternate
sending and hosting an envoy of
students each year. Another
group of German students is
expected to come to Florida in
the Fall of 2006 and Bartow will
send more students back in the
Spring of 2007.
Now safely back stateside,
Mrs. Lewis and the students
gathered on April 25 to recount
their trip on "Bochum
Appreciation Night" on the BHS
campus,
Mrs. Lewis complied a photo
scrapbook, highlighting all of
the major locations visited, as
well as a collection of all the
papers and journal efitries the
students were required to write
during their trip.
During the reunion, Mrs.
Lewis got a chance to speak
with parents and find out how
the students' attitudes .had
changed after the European
tour.
"In talking with the parents,
I have found that some of their
sons and daughters are more
open now to world news.
They've become a little more
accepting of cultural differ-
ences. They've become more
accepting that while America
might be, 'the bigger, the better,'
that it doesn't have to always be
that way.
"They also- have found out
with the: inass. transportation
that you don't have to have a
car. They found it very econom-
ical to get fiom home to school,
to a club,".Mrs:.Lewis said.
Uponr arrival in Germany,
the students were treated to a
party at the school where they,
were given gifts and met their
host families.
"When you are housed with a
host family it makes the experi-
ence so much more educational,
because you can share the lan-
guage, kind of like a show and
tell, sitting down with the fami-
ly versus a train or a bus," Mrs.
Lewis said. "This was much
more educational, and that was
the purpose."
While in Bochum, the stu-


dents were the honored guests
at two receptions, held by each
of the town's two burgermeis-
ters, or mayors. The students
attended classes at the Schule
and had to give a presentation
to the school about life in
America and Bartow.
School life in Germany was
surprisingly similar, said the
students, but at the same time,
extremely different.
Students were shocked to see
.their German counterparts
smoking on school grounds and
sometimes even giving ciga-
rettes to teachers.
Only familiar with special
events at school like "Spirit
Day" or "Hawaiian Day," the
Bartow students were shocked
to see German teens wearing
suits and toting toy guns to
school on "Mafia Day."
After a while, the group left
Bochum and traveled to
Muenster, Dusseldorf,
Blankenstein, Hattingen, Koln
and Berlin.
While in Blankenstein, the
group watched a football match,
or soccer as it is known in the
U.S. The students were sur-
prised to see how similar the
crowd was to that of an
American football game.
"They were so rowdy, it was
awesome," said one student,
adding, "People were totally
drunk on the train ride to the
stadium."
The students also visited cas-
tles and cathedrals, such as the
famous Dom in Cologne, and
many were impressed by seeing
buildings erected 300 years
before the Declaration of
Independence was even an idea
in Thomas Jefferson's head.
Looking at medieval torture
devices that still hang from
some of the cathedrals was
especially interesting, said Mrs.
Lewis.
One of the more emotional
experiences was the trip to the
World War II work camp,
-Sachenhausen, one of the earli-
est constructed during the war.
Mrs. Lewis said she had trou-
ble keeping her composure
while viewing giant slabs of
concrete, once used as medical
examining tables for terribly
inhumane purposes.
After that, the group took a
trip 3,000 feet straight down in
the Prosper-Haniel coal mine.
Soon, it was time to return
and the students had a farewell
dinner, where they got a little
slice of home literally. The
students got a much welcome
reprieve from schnitzel with a
pizza party at a local club.
Mrs. Lewis said she was glad
to be home, but said she will
never forget the chance to share
new experiences with the kids
and looks forward to next time.
"Kids are kids and they are
so open to change. Like little
sponges, they absorb more than
you realize. For me, just to sit
back and to watch them and to
listen to them, the things they
bring up and the memories they
have, I can't tell you-whatthat-
feels like," she said.
"I sit here smiling because
that's all I can do. I just feel
good that I was a part of some-
thing they will never ever for-
get. For some of them it has
made them want to go again
and see more of the country, see
more of the world,. and that's
what it's all about."


Upon arrival in Bochum, Germany the students were welcomed by
a handmade sign (clockwise from top) with each of their names.
On a quick excursion to Berlin, the group visited Brandenburg Tor.
"Football," as soccer is known outside of the United States, is big
time in Germany. Students Silvia Calero and Tracee Martin enjoyed
their high vantage point while they watched rowdy fans cheer on Dortmund Borussia in a los-
ing home effort.
Students pose outside the German exchange school, Markische Schule, by a tile-covered tree
that stands near the school's entrance.
"Arbeit Macht Frei," roughly translates into "Work Will Set You Free," remains as a haunting

Knights 7091 Meeting Room Named in Honor
Of Late Gene Gayford, Former Knight of Year


eli
8 I


ion


Every time members of
Knights of Columbus Council
7091 meet in their newly-com-
pleted meeting room at the K of
C Hall at 401 Third Street
Southwest in Winter Haven,
they're now reminded of the late
Gene Gayford and the significant
contributions he made to the
council before his death in April.
In recognition of Gayford's
overall leadership role, directing
the Council's Bingo charity fund-
raiser for many years, and trans-
forming the old Red Lobster Res-
taurant into the current K of C
Hall, members of the council
named the new meeting room
the "Gene Gayford Meeting
Room."
Gayford, who served two
terms as the council's Grand
Knight and was named Florida's
Knight of the Year in 1999, is
generally credited with turning
the council's Bingo program into
one of the most successful K of C
charity fundraisers in Central
Florida in his role as Bingo
chairman for more than 10
years, a spokesman said.
He also orchestrated the con-


version of the old Red Lobster
into the new K of C Hall, provid-
ing leadership for a group of vol-
unteer workers called Geriatric
Construction.
"Gene was a tremendous
leader and an untiring worker
whose accomplishments are now
legendary in K of C circles and
throughout the Winter Haven
volunteer community," Grand
Knight Tom Habina said. "He
was the consummate knight who
has certainly left an indelible
mark on our council.
"We are proud to dedicate the
new meeting room in Gene's
honor, and hopefully this will in-
spire others to emulate him by
working hard and adopting his
'can do' attitude."
In a special ceremony con-
ducted at the K of C Hall shortly
after Gayford passed away,
Habina presented a plaque for
the "Gene Gayford Meeting
Room" to the deceased knight's
wife, Shirley Gayford.
The couple would have cele-
brated their 50th wedding anni-
versary in September.

Reading and Writing

Are Good For You
Reading and writing are to the mind what diet and exercise are to *
the body. Just as food nourishes the body, so too does reading nourish.
the mind. And, just as exercise strengthens the body, so too does writ-
ing strengthen our mind. When we write, we are forced to make our -
ideas clear, and this mental exercise improves our mind. Of course,
we should pay careful attention to the particular quality of what we.
are reading and writing since much of today's popular reading mate-
rial is of questionable value, and not all writing is equally strenuous
exercise for the mind. We should seek out books which will teach us
something or that will inspire us to become a better person, and then
we should try our hand at writing things which will likewise teach or
inspire others. So, we should consider turning off the television and
instead read a good book, and then tell someone about it in writing.

SFinally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable,
whatever is just,-whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, what-
ever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything
worthy of praise, think about these feelings.

Just the Fax, Ma'am


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER

For years, I smugly prided
myself as a non-fax machine per-
-son.
I felt it beneath my dignity to
own such a technical contrap-
tion.
The quill is more my style
than a computer, but, being
practical, I reluctantly use a
computer, casting wistful
glances at the dust gathering on
my quill.
Unfortunately, in the world in
which we live, it is necessary to
fax some letter or document to
someone in some part of the
world. I don't like it, but that's
just the way it is.
On the rare occasion when I
must fax some document at an
office store, I usually sneak in
the back way.
It has been my experience,
when the fax man seeth me
cometh, he always raises the
price per page. This is just a
small service he does for Yours
Truly.
Then, when paying for this
service, the fax man usually says
with an impish grin, "When are
you going to get a fax machine of
your own?"
I always flash a smile back at
him, but if he knew the thoughts
in my head, he would charge me
more per page.
Silence truly is golden, espe-
cially for the person exercising
the virtue.
Actually, I. don't trust ma-
chines. I know a mind some-
where is controlling all of these
machines. A menacing, mischie-


By ROGER CAMPBELL

Medical waiting rooms pro-
vide interesting encounters.
Hurting and sometimes fear-
ful people are prime prospects
for encouraging words and are
often receptive to invitations to
faith.
SOccasionally, there's even a
memorable article in one of the
magazines provided for impa-
1tient patients that makes the
,wait worthwhile. Last week was'
one of those occasions for me.
A recent issue of "The Smith-
'sonian" carries an extensive fea-
ture on the bicentennial of the
1805 Lewis and Clark Expedi-
tion.
While awaiting my turn for a
routine physical, this.intriguing
story caught my eye and then
'my attention. The scenery, the
descriptions of hair raising ad-
Sventures, and the mystery of his-
tory made this wait worthwhile,
;but one statement by Captain
'Clark towered above all the rest.
Upon reading Clark's com-
ment, I quickly scribbled it on a
subscription:card in the maga-
zine lest it slip away before I
could share it with others.
Here's the scene and sub-
stance of Clark's statement that
has life changing potential -
maybe for you today:
Captain Clark and company
have reached the Rocky Moun-
tains and are headed for the Pa-
cific Ocean. A painting shows
him captivated by the beauty be-
fore him.
- Suddenly, however, he is dis-
tracted from the beauty of the
moment by thoughts about the
difficulties and hardships this
tough terrain may present to
him and his companions as they
carry out their mission. Injuries
and even death loom.
Then, moving his mood from
fear to faith, Clark says, "as I
have always held it a little short
of criminality to anticipate evils,
I will allow it to be a good and
comfortable road until I am com-
pelled to believe otherwise," a
wise decision, since he lived an-
other 33 successful years,
achieved many goals, and died of
natural causes.
We are all explorers, looking
everyday for new discoveries.
Sometimes these explorations

vous mind dedicated to the sim-
ple task of messing up my life.
When I eventually break
down and buy a fax machine,
someone will invent something
to replace it and I'll have an-
other antique on my hands to
put alongside my Underwood
typewriter and box of 8-track
tapes.
This notwithstanding, I ended
up buying a fax machine several
weeks ago. I didn't want to, but I
had no choice in the matter.
My printer finally went the
way of all printers. I hated to see
it go. The left side was cracked
where Noah, the original owner,
dropped it.
For years, it served me quite
well. My next printer will have a
big ink cartridge to fill.
I hate buying replacement
equipment. Rarely is the new
any better than the old, just
more expensive, not to mention
complicated.
But, necessity is the step-
mother of all complications in
life, and I set out to buy a new
printer.
I resolutely did not want to
buy a fax machine. Under no cir-
cumstance did I want to buy a
fax machine.
Therefore, I ended up buying
a fax machine.
It is impossible to buy a
printer anymore. In order to buy
a printer you must buy a ma-
chine that prints/copies/scans/
faxes.
I think it's a pretty sneaky
way to get me to buy a fax ma-
chine. Someone "out there" is set
on me owning a fax machine


lead us into dangerous places
and new challenges, but there is
no need to fear if our faith is in
the One who knows the future.
Looking out my upstairs office
window at this time of the year,
I see a panorama of beauty.
Spring has arrived in all its"
splendor the grass is green;
the flowering crabapple trees are'
in bloom, the mountain ash tree
is flowering all announcing
the design of God in His creation
and His love for us.
But if, like Captain Clark, I
allow myself to focus on fear in-
stead of faith, I will immediately
lose the blessings of all this
beauty.
In his book, "Letters to an
American Lady," C.S. Lewis
wrote:
"The great thing, as you have
.obviously seen (both as regards
.pain arid financial worries), is to
live from day to day and houir'to
hourI ot adding .the past or the
future to the present.
"I am sorry to hear .that so
many troubles crowd upon you,
but glad to hear that, by God's
grace, you are so untroubled."
God hasn't promised blue
skies everyday. We may experi-
ence emotional and physical
pain, face conflicts with dis-
agreeable people, and receive un-
wanted bills in the mail, but
none of these things can sepa-
rate us from the love of God.
Faith enables us to be trium-
phant in trouble (1 John 5:4).
There may be dangerous
mountains to cross, but knowing
that faith moves mountains
(Matthew 17:20) makes optimis-
tic explorers of us all.

even though I don't want to own
one.
This new machine does every-
thing but.vacuum the interior
my car. But it was the cheapest
machine I could find.
I bought the machine, but de-
termined not to use the fax part.
After all, somebody has to stand
up for what they believe. Not
everybody should succumb to the
latest trend.
I was doing fine until ending
up in the hospital. When I got
out, I needed to fax a document
to the hospital.
Now I faced a taxing di-
lemma.
Do I go to the office store and
fax my document, or do I try out
my new printer/copierkcanner/-
fax machine?
Precedence finally gave way
to convenience. I took my docu-
ment to my new machine and
figured out how to fax it to the
hospital.
Not being confident in my
technical knowledge, I called the
hospital office to check on the
faxed document.
Much to my surprise, the per-
son on the other end said in a
very cheery voice, "Yes, I have
the faxed document right here in
my hand."
I must admit, although I hate
doing so, faxing from my house
was much easier than going to
the office store.
I now knew how to fax a docu-
ment anywhere in the world, but
I had nothing to fax to anyone in
the world. I just stood there look-
ing at my machine trying to
think of something to fax.

Even though I knew how to
fax a document, I still did not
know how to receive a fax.
Several days ago, a friend
called and said he had a docu-
ment he wanted me to have right
away. He then asked the omi-
nous question, "Do you have a
fax machine?"
I began to say no, but hesi-
tated and confessed I had a fax
machine, but did not know how
to receive faxes.
It was humiliating to make
such a confession, but it was
true.
"It's simple," he said. "Hang
up the phone and I'll dial again
and let the machines talk to one
another."
This caused no small discom-
fort. To think these machines
are talking to one another be-
hind my back is most disturbing.
What are they saying behind
my back? What are they saying
about me behind my back?
Now that I come to think
about it, I have heard sounds
similar to snickering coming
from the general direction of my
printer/scanner/copier/fax ma-
chine. I don't mind Big Brother
watching over me, but I do mind
some machine making jokes with
other machines about me.
When it comes to "new
things," God is the master.
This is what He promises to
do for us. "Therefore if any man
be in Christ, he is a new crea-
ture: old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become
new." (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV)
Put that in your printer and
fax it.

"Too often we think that who
we are is dictated by circum-
stances beyond our control, old
baggage, past mistakes, or hard
times imposed by severe
weather, family worries, or fi-
nancial struggles," Ms. Hyatt
said.
"Sometimes the problem is as
basic as what we see in the mir-
ror in the morning, or the storm
debris outside. It's hard to meet
daily challenges, much less be
inspired to be part of the solu-
tion at home, school, or work,
when the view we have of our-
selves is overwhelmed. A new
view is needed, one that is free-
ing and empowering."
Ms. Hyatt is a professional
speaker with more than 15 years
experience helping others find
spiritual solutions to everyday
problems. She speaks from the
experience of living with an an-.
gry alcoholic father, and of cop-

Rev. Frank Derrick Joins FM First Baptist

As Associate Pastor of Youth and Educas I


By JANICE JARED
Staff Writer


Visiting with the Rev. Frank
Derrick, his wife, Connie, and
their children leads one to the
immediate conclusion that they
love people.
They want people at their
home, in their church, in their
lives.
Reverend Derrick, recently
appointed as the First Baptist
Church of Fort Meade's associate
pastor of youth and education,
and his wife have four very so-
cial, outgoing, involved children.
All of the children are home
schooled.
Jenny, the oldest, graduated
in 2004 and will be participating
in a summer missionary pilot
program designed by Lifeway
Publishing Company. She and
three other young people will
present Vacation Bible School
curriculum to churches in the
Fort Lauderdale area, as a pilot
program to determine if the ma-
terial will be chosen by the Flor-
ida Baptist Convention for con-
tinued use.
Until she leaves for her sum-
mer adventure, Jenny works as
a nanny and tutor for two fami-
lies, one with five children, one
with one child. She said she gets
plenty of exercise carrying 20-
pound babies up and down
stairs.
Seventeen-year-old Sandy,
who is in the 11th grade, is in
the dual enrollment program,
and already has six college
classes under his belt.
He loves to play the guitar,
sing, "fool around" with the pi-
ano, and has qualified for a na-
tional tournament with a speech
and debate club. His real love is
journalism. He will participate
in a.journalism leadership camp


at Patrick Henry College in Vir-
ginia in June.
Sandy will be playing guitar
and singing with the First Bap-
tist youth group for the 2005
Fort Meade High School gradua-
tion ceremonies.
Ben is 14 and in the eighth
grade. He, along with the rest of
the family, loves sports.
"We are always playing foot-
ball, basketball something,"
Ben said.
But his real love is fishing. He
said he can't wait to fish at Pat-
terson Park in Fort Meade, and
he intends to become a fishing
guide one day.
Joy, 12, is a people person.
Her greatest joy is friendships,
and "hanging out" with her bud-
dies. She is in the sixth grade,
and also enjoys basketball and
running.
Rev. and Mrs. Derrick said
they bought a big freezer and an-
other refrigerator when they
came from Lakeland, and they
are prepared to show hospitality.
They also said they are grateful
they live on Edgewater, down
from the middle and senior high
school, so that it will be conven-
ient for kids to drop by to see
them.
"We will be able to have eve-
ryone over," Pastor Derri'ck said.
"We have plenty of room, and af-
ter the church gave us a 'pound-
ing,' we have plenty of food." (A "
pounding" is when church mem-
bers bring a pound of something
to stock the pantry of a new pas-
tor's home when he arrives.)
Pastor Derrick said the family
has fallen in love with Fort
Meade.
"It is a wonderful place for
young people," he said. "People
are so easy to talk to around
here. Everyone is so friendly.
"Our family has had their eye


on Fort Meade for a long time.
We were introduced to the area,
and I met Senior Pastor Kenny
Slay over 10 years ago when I
came to conduct a Disciple Now
retreat with Mark Creech, who
was the youth minister at that
time."
The family finally made it to
Lakeland, he said, and they
worked in church planting in
that area for three years before
moving to Fort Meade.
Pastor Derrick and his wife
both grew up in Orlando.
Pastor Derrick graduated
from the University of Florida.
He and Mrs. Derrick's dads both
are University of Florida gradu-
ates. Pastor Derrick received his
master's degree in religious edu-
cation from Southwestern Bap-
tist Seminary in Texas.
For the last 15 years, the cou-
ple has been in full-time student
and youth ministry, all in Flor-
ida except for two years spent in
Pennsylvania.
Mrs. Derrick said she enjoys
reading and loves to cook, but
that she is not 'a "gourmet" cook.
They both say they are proud to
be a part of the community and
feel like they are finally home.
"When Senior Pastor Kenny
Slay shared his vision statement
for the church with me: 'To know
Christ and to make Him known,'
saying, 'it is not about religion,
not about just going to church,
but it is about a personal, one on
one relationship with Jesus
Christ,' I knew we were both go-
ing in the same direction," Pas-
tor Derrick said. "My part of the
vision, under the direction of
Pastor Slay, will center on mid-
dle school, high school, and col-
lege students' evangelism and
educational areas, and Sunday
School and discipleship pro-
grams."


Cornerstone Church of God in Fort Meade

Names Carmen Cuencas 'Mother of the Year'


By JANICE JARED
Staff Writer

Carmen Cuencas was very
surprised at the "Hats Off To La-
dies" luncheon Saturday, May 7,
at Cornerstone Church in Fort
Meade, when she suddenly saw
her sons, who live in California,
on a power point presentation,
congratulating her for being se-
lected "Mother of the Year" at
the church.
Mrs. Cuencas' sons, Marco
Garcia and Robert Cuencas, are
both ordained ministers at The
Way World Outreach Ministries
in San Berdino, Cal.
"You have been the best mom
to me that anybody could ever
dream of. Thank you," Robert
told his mother. "You have
taught me to walk in the things
of the Lord and to fear the Lord.
"I honor you for that as a
mom, because it is the best deci-
sion a parent could ever make, to
raise up a child in the things of
the Lord."
Robert also thanked his mom
for their church in California,
stating, "If it wasn't for you and

your faithfulness in prayers, I
would not be here now as assis-
tant pastor of the church."
Marco began by wishing his
mother a happy Mother's Day,
and congratulating her for being
mother of the year.
"For 37 years, you have been
my mother of the year," he said.
"Thank you for having such a
great impact... for being such a
great example in my life.
"If it wasn't for you, Robert
and I would not be the men that
we are today, both serving God
as ministers of the word, reach-
ing lives everyday with the love
of Jesus Christ, which was
transferred through you to us.
"The Bible says, 'Her children
will rise up and call her blessed,'
and that is what we do."
Mrs. Cuencas was born and
raised in Saint Croix, Virgin Is-
lands. She attended the Univer-
sity of Puerto Rico, where she re-
ceived a bachelor's degree in hu-
manities with an English major
and Spanish minor.
She taught high school for
three years in the Virgin Islands
before moving to California,
where she taught high school for
15 years.
She loves to travel and has
been to many foreign countries.
She said she especially likes to
travel to California, where she
can be with her sons, their
wives, and her six granddaugh-
ters. She returns to the Virgin
Islands to see extended family
almost every three years..
She and her husband, Ramon,
have been the owners/operators
of The Fort Meade Motel, at 220
North Charleston, for 10 years.
Also an ordained minister,
Mrs. Cuencas has attended Cor-
nerstone Church and has taught
the Sanctuary Sunday School
class for the last nine years. She
said she loves interacting with'
people, especially young people,


and enjoys her work and mneet-
ing new people at the motel.
Becky Driskell, president of
Women's Ministers, who pre-
sented Mrs. Cuencas with the
"Mother of the Year" plaque,
said, "No one deserves this
award more than Carmen Cuen-
cas. She is a wonderful Christian
lady."

SOut of My Range



by Peggy Kehoe


What could be better than your
own personal holiday? Not much
and that's just what a birthday
is, your own special day in the
whole year.
Whether or not you want a big
fuss made over the day you get
older, inside you should have that
special birthday glow.
For those who throw their own
parties, or for those who are plan-
ning celebrations for others, here
are some ideas for special
desserts from meals.com.
By the way, as some know, May
is the best month for a birthday
-just ask me!

ters comes out clean. Cool cakes

utes. Remove cakes from pans;

To Assemble:

Cut the saved trimmings into rec-
tangles to stack on top of the first
cake to form the engine car.
Frost top and sides of cakes
generously with frosting.
Decorate each side of each car
with SweeTarts to form wheels.
Use Bottle Caps for the lights on
the front of the engine car and the
back of the last car. Place


Butterfinger on its side on the
front of the engine car to form a
smokestack. To form the railway
track, line Nerd Ropes along the
two sides of the entire train. Fill
top of remaining 5 cars with the
remaining assorted candies to
form beds of candy cargo. Candles
can be placed on top of each train
car.
Note: Cake can be made the
previous day. Cake can be frosted
up to 4 hours before serving.
