Local Restaurant Closes for 3rd Time


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher
For the third time in as many
years, what used to be Bartow's
finest and most popular restau-
rant has closed.
Dissension between the co-
owners John loannidis and Bill
Lyristis was behind the abrupt
closure Monday morning, both
men said. The men are "distant
relatives," Ioannidis said.
The restaurant, known for
most of its more than 70 years of
existence as John's, became
Bartow Family Restaurant when
it was reopened in 2004 by
loannidis and Lyristis.
Toannidis said that last week,
Lyristis "took over the restau-
rant," but that when loannidis
took the papers to Lyristis to sell
his half-ownership of the busi-
ness, Lyristis refused to sign
them.
Lyristis agreed that the two
didn't get along.
"I told him 'Either you take it
or I take it'," he said.
SLyristis said the first he knew
of the impending closure was
when he got word Sunday night
that loannidis, who also owns
Wauchula Family Restaurant,
was removing food and equip-.
nient from the restaurant. He
said he called the Bartow police,
and was told that it was a civil
matter.
SIoannidis denied taking equip-
ment, and said he removed food to
keep it from spoiling when the
electricity was cut off.,
About 8:15 Monday morning,
loannidis contacted Karen
Hielscher, customer accounts
supervisor at city hall, told her he
ad closed the restaurant, and
asked her to cut off the electricity.
Later in the morning, Lyristis
checked with her to be sure that


the electric bill was current, Ms.
Hielscher said. She determined
that the deposit posted when the
restaurant reopened was suffi-
cient to cover the current bill.
loannidis said he has paid his
share of the lease to Trifon


Houvardas, owner of the building,
in return for a release from the
lease.
Asked about the possibility
that'he might reopen the restau-
rant, loannidis said: "Myself, I
don't think so."


A FIVE-MONTH-OLD baby and a woman were
rushed to Lakeland Regional Medical Center early
Friday morning after a tractor trailer crashed into
a car stopped at a traffic light at the intersection of
SR 60 and CR 555. According to Bartow Police
Traffic Homicide Investigator Bryan Dorman,
Patricia Sue Blankenship of Babson Park was trav-
eling west in a 1983 Toyota on SR 60 when she
stopped for the light. The tractor trailer, driven by
Frank Capote of Hialeah, also was traveling west
and failed to stop, Dorman said. To avoid hitting the
car, Capote swerved left and struck the left rear of
the car, launching the car forward, sending it
swerving and rotating until it rolled over and
crashed into a mailbox. Capote was not injured in
the crash. Ms. Blankenship complained of minor


Asked the same question,
Lyristis replied: "Honestly, I
would love to very much. We had
good food. We did a great job."

chest and leg pain, and a passenger in her car,
James Blankenship, complained of head pain. Both
refused medical treatment, Dorman said. Another
passenger in the car, Christine E. Fanz of
Frostproof, was incapacitated at the scene and
taken to LRMC with head trauma, but was treated
and released. The baby, Matthew T. Rydenbark,
also of Frostproof, was not injured, but was taken to
the hospital as a precaution. Capote told police that
the light was green, and that Blankenship stopped
for no reason; however, a witness said the traffic
signal was red when Blankenship stopped. Capote
was charged with careless driving. (Photo by

Polk County commissioners
voted 4-to-1 on Wednesday to
increase the public service tax
charged in unincorporated areas
of the county from eight percent
to the state-imposed limit of 10
percent.
The tax is collected on sale of
utilities, including electricity,
natural gas, LP gas, and water
service.
Most cities already impose a
10 percent tax.
The increase will take effect
on Oct. 1.
Several members of the audi-
ence spoke against the tax.
Beverly Kruger, speaking on
behalf of several residents'
groups, said the county "is piling
tax after tax on us."
Ed White of Lakeland asked if
the new revenue would be dedi-
cated to any particular purpose.
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
said the money would go mostly
to expanding the jail, to build a
new sheriff's administration
building, and to create more
space for the court system.
White said that "the suburbs
would subsidize the cities" for
those facilities.
County Mgr. Mike Herr said
the county would use state rev-
enue sharing funds for the jail,
and would use the public service
tax revenue to make up for that
funding.

tration building, the present
sheriff's operations center could

Fire heavily damaged Fowler's
Grocery store in Fort Meade,
which also is known in the area
for catering many events and
meetings.
Firemen got the call
Wednesday at 1:47 p.m. to
respond to the store on Highway
98, east of Fort Meade.
Firefighters from Fort Meade,
Bartow, Hardee, Polk County and
Frostproof, along with EMTs, and
the Polk County Sheriff's
Department, assisted with the
emergency. The state fire marshal
also was there. Firemen con-
tained the blaze by 3 p.m., but
were on the scene until much
later.
Scott Fowler, owner/operator
of the grocery/gas store, said the
fire started in an open shed area
at the back right of the store.
"We heard a loud explosion. I
went back to look and saw flames.


handle expansion of the court
system, Herr said.
The two percent increase
would be earmarked for services
in the unincorporated areas,
Herr said.
Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson suggested that the
county could increase its charge
for ambulance runs by $100 to
generate $5.5 million in addition-
al revenue. Leon County is
charging $200 more than Polk
County, he said.
Wilkinson said he supports a
400-bed work release center, but
not a 1,000-bed expansion of the
jail.
Gene Horton told the commis-
sion: "We about have enough
taxes." He suggested a "user's
fee" for people who use libraries,
rather than supporting them
with county taxes.
"I believe some people in this
room go to bed at night trying to
figure out how to raise taxes," he
told the commission.
Another speaker said the
county has been steadily increas-
ing taxes and imposing new taxes
for the past four or five years.
Al Whittle said the public ser-
vice tax is different from ad val-
orem property taxes. The county
started with a two percent public
service tax for roads in unincor-
porated areas, he said.
A couple of years ago, the tax
was raised to eight percent and
the money went into the general
fund, he said.


I do not know if a fan blew out
and caught a refrigeration line on
fire or what," said Fowler.
He and all of the employees got
out of the building and called 911.
Fowler said there is a condenser
back in the shed that has refrig-
eration running through it. He
said fans cool off the refrigeration
unit.
"I do not know if a fan blew up
and caused a refrigeration line to
blow up or what, but that was
where the fire started," he repeat-
ed.
Neighbors from behind the
store, near the flame and smoke
area, heard the explosion. Houses
near the rear of the store area
were evacuated in the event there
was another explosion.
Fort Meade Fire Chief Bill
Gunter said the fire started at the
right rear of the building under
the shed area, spread to the area
where the store has its barbecue
operations, then to the area
where food is fried. The fire then


He said an increase in the ad
valorem property tax on all prop-
erty in the county would be more
equitable than increasing the
public service tax only in unin-
corporated areas.
Carlton Hodges warned that
an increase in the public service
tax might cause hotel and motel
and other short term rental oper-
ators to raise their rates so much
that business visitors would stay
in Orlando or Tampa, which have
more nightlife and a greater vari-
ety of restaurants than Polk
County.
That could cause a decrease in
both tourist tax and sales tax
revenue, he said.
Myers said that both Orlando
and Tampa have higher tourist
taxes than Polk and a 10 percent
public service tax. As to nightlife,
Myers said: "That's why we live
here and they live there."
Wilkinson said that gasoline
taxes are lower in Tampa and
Orlando.
He said that some Polk
Countians, including his father,
are paying monthly water bills in
the hundreds of dollars.
"All these things are hitting at
the same time," he said. "People
can only give so much."
He said higher taxes discour-
age new businesses from moving
to Polk County.
Commissioners adopted the
tax increase on a 4-to-1 vote, with
Wilkinson voting against it.

Memorial Day: A Time


For National Resolve


Next Monday, Americans will pause to
celebrate Memorial Day, honoring the
memories of American men and women
who lost their lives in the military service
of their country.
Though sometimes regarded as the
Springtime equivalent of Veterans Day,
which is celebrated on Nov. 11, there is a
significant difference.
Veterans Day recognizes former mem-
bers of the armed forces who can look back
and reflect on their service; Memorial Day
honors those who never had that opportu-
nity.
Regular readers of this page will recog-
nize these Memorial Day sentiments from
past years; they bear repeating.
America owes its men and women who
are committed to the battlefield one thing
above all else: the national resolve to see
them through to victory.
In many parts of the world, including
the Middle East, war is a way of life, a
daily reality ... a contest to be won this
year, lost next year, won again the follow-
ing year.
The value that Americans put on human
life rejects that notion. When we put
America's most precious asset the lives
of its men and women in harm's way,
we don't do it casually; America does not
go to war to giveit our.best try. ...
America goes to war to win, and while
that mission is carried out by the soldier on
the battlefield, on the high seas, and in the
air, it must be grounded in national
resolve, from the White House to the man
on the street.
We had that resolve in World War II, and
America and her allies joined forces to
defeat powerful armies of Germany and
Japan.
The.Korean War ended essentially in a
stalemate.
America lost the war in Vietnam. The
words stick in the throat, but they must be
spoken: we lost the war in Vietnam.
SDefeat came: not because American sol-
diers lacked theskills and the battlefield
courage to win; defeat came because
Americans lacked the resolve-to win.
The objective of President Nixon
became not victory, but "peace with
honor." His lack of resolve trickled down
Pennsylvania Avenue to Capitol Hill, and
eventually to Main Street, USA.
There is plenty of blame to be shared by
the two Presidents who served before


Nixon set foot in the Oval Office.
America entered an ill-advised war -
initially as advisors but eventually as com-
batants with no real concept of the mis-
sion. Even in retrospect, it is not clear why
we were there, and even less clear what
our objective was.
A popular sardonic suggestion of the era
was: "Let's just declare victory and leave."
America once again is at war half-way
around the world. It will be for history to
judge whether the invasion of Iraq -
America's first pre-emptive war was a
good idea. The weapons of mass destruc-
tion which were the justification for that
war apparently do not exist.
But the world unquestionably is a better,
safer, more civilized place with Saddam
Hussein removed from power. And in the
future, when the world's despots are
warned by the United States, they will be
well advised to listen.
But these are issues of national policy
and international politics.
The soldier on the battlefield follows his
or her orders, because that's what soldiers
do. The soldier fights to achieve victory,
not a stalemate.
Whatever our individual beliefs on the
wisdom of President Bush in taking the
nation into war in Iraq and Afghanistan,
let us resolve to suppor.t.tie soldiers, on;he.,,
battlefield. :, : ... -- .
Let us be united in our commitment to
see them through to victory.
For it is in victory that the deaths of
1,600 American service members in Iraq,
and of hundreds of thousands of soldiers,
sailors, airmen and Marines who made the
ultimate -sacrifice from American
Revolution forward, have meaning.
May God grant rest eternal to their.
souls; may each of us resolve that their
deaths were not in vain..

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

Air Guard Cuts Make No Sense


"We've yet to meet the senator
or representative who liked the
idea of closing a local military
base," observed The New York
Times in an editorial on the rec-
ommendations of the Base
Realignment and Closure report
from the Pentagon.
The same can be said of gover-
nors, state legislators, mayors,
city and county commissioners,
Chambers of Commerce, veter-
Sans organizations, and every-
body else who has a vested inter-
est in the presence, payrolls,
pride, and convenience of a major
military base.
Floridians breathed a sigh of
relief when most of its bases
escaped the BRAC cuts. In central
Florida, MacDill Air Force Base


was a survivor.
It is easy, then, to say "Tough
luck!" to places like the Groton,
Conn., submarine base, Fort
McPherson, Ga., the Pascagoula


Naval Station in Mississippi, and
other historic landmarks of the
military community.
Less noticed, but no less signif-
icant, is the plan to ground nearly
one-third of the nation's 88 flying
units of the Air National Guard.
Twenty-eight Air Guard units
would lose their aircraft.
The Air Guard even more
than the Army National Guard,
in which I served for 30 years -
is an integral part of its active
component counterpart, the
United States Air Force.
Air Guard pilots regularly fly
active missions, alongside or
even in the place of active Air
Force pilots. The Air Guard is
more than a standby organiza-
tion; it flies "real world" missions
on a daily basis, not just when
mobilized for extended periods
of active duty.
The cost of training of pilots
and flight maintenance crews


vastly exceeds the cost of training
most Army specialties. To kiss off
one-third of that investment, one-
third of the pilots and mainte-
nance crews, makes no sense.
The Guard and Reserve are
highly cost-effective; part-timers
are paid for as little as four days a
month plus 15 days of annual
training, but are held to the same
standards of physical condition
and job performance as are 365-
days-per-year soldiers and air-
men.
And in my hardly impartial
view, Guardsmen and Reservists
are more highly motivated than
their active duty counterparts.
They serve because they love it,
not because it is their sole source
of income.
And just how much money
will the Pentagon save by cash-
iering one-third of the Air
Guard's flying units?
According to the National


"Copyrighted Material

,,4' ., -ae


Guard Assn. of the United States
(of which, in the interest of full
disclosure, I am a life member)
the closing of Air Guard stations
at Birmingham, Ala., Fort Smith,
Ark., and Capital, Ill., will save a
total of $8.8 million over the
course of 20 years.
The Dept. of Defense projects
that closing of Cannon Air Force
Base, N.M., an active Air Force
base, will save more than $2.7 bil-
lion over that same period of:
time.
The Guard and Reserve prop-
erly has to justify its force struc-
ture, as do the active compo-
nents.
Of all the Guard and Reserve
units, some of the easiest to justi-
fy are the flying units of the Air
National Guard.
Clipping their wings is folly.

Benjamin L. Durrance was
hired Monday night as Bartow's
city manager by a 3-1-1 vote.
George Coker, favored by two of
Bartow's five commissioners,
criticized the majority for.hiring a
non-applicant and not interview-
ing the applicants who did apply,
and said he plans to run for the
commission in October.
W.D. Helmuth has been

mine a wetland area in Hooker's
Prairie appeared in numbers


Wednesday night at the Bartow

Fort Meade returned Thursday
from four days of riot duty in
Miami.

see a return to the severe industry
slump which lasted from 1981 to
1983.


PALMETTO My name i
Jody Britt, aka The Souther:
Assassin. You ran an article ii
your May 16 edition of The Poll
County Democrat on local
professional wrestling, Mr.
Chris Rain, and his FWE pro-
motion.
I have read the article on
the Internet, and I want to
thank you for the article and
the exposure you have given
to local entertainment and
professional wrestling. With
the giant world wide WWE
television, local wrestlers
sometimes go unnoticed, but
it's the local promotions, the
shows in the local arenas,
armories, bars, clubs, and
even backyards that it all
begins, and ends, and the
fans that keep it alive.
Thank you from all of us
for your contribution to our


cause, which is entertainment,
and presenting a great family ori-
ented show each and every time
we lace up our boots, get into


character, and put our bodies on
the line. We do this because we
love it, and we love our fans.

also allows us to have additional
office hours.
"Dr. Khurana will see pa-
tients on Mondays and Wednes-
days, while Mr. Kennedy will
continue his Monday evening,
Tuesday and Thursday hours.
Mr. Kennedy has been a real as-
set to the medical community in

what the doctor ordered," Ken-
nedy said.
Dr. Geldart is board certified

Muriel E.

Muriel E. Williams of Bartow,
died of heart failure on Sunday,
May 22, 2005, at Life Care Cen-
ter of Winter Haven. He was 66.
Born Jan. 5, 1939, in Bowling
Green, Mr. Williams moved from
there to Bartow 22 years ago.
He is survived by his brother,
Tommy Buxton of Bartow.
Visitation: Wednesday, May
25, 6 to 8 p.m., Whidden-McLean

Funeral: Thursday, May 26,
10 a.m., at the graveside in Pay-

Green, with Rev. John Holloway
officiating.


RWIs and appropriate swim-
ming behaviors plays a pivotal
role in RWI transmission.
Swimmers who are ill with di-
arrhea may contaminate swim-
ming venues; this poses health
risks for the healthy swimmers
in the pool.
In addition, high-risk groups
such as the young, the elderly,
the pregnant, and the immuno-
suppressed should also be ad-'
vised about RWI prevention and
healthy swimming behaviors.
Healthy Swimming behaviors in-
clude:
Don't swim when you have
diarrhea. You can spread germs
in the water and make other
people sick.
Don't swallow the pool wa-
ter. In fact, avoid getting water
in your mouth.
Practice good hygiene.
Shower before swimming and
wash your hands after using the
toilet or changing diapers.
Germs on your body end up in
the water.
Take children on bathroom
breaks or change diapers often.
Waiting to hear "I have to go"
may mean that it's too late.
Change diapers in a bath-
room and not at poolside. Germs
can spread to surfaces and ob-
jects in and around the pool and
spread illness.
Wash your child thoroughly
(especially the rear end) with
soap and water before swim-

MOTHER'S DAY IS a special time in the life of both the parent

Computers For
Kids Seeks
Donations

Computers for Kids, a non-
profit charity that provides re-
furbished donated computers to
children and families throughout
central Florida, announced that
it will be closing, unless more
funding is secured.
The yearly operating expenses
of the charity are approximately
$25,000 and the charity had
hoped to hire a full-time com-
puter technician.
The charity now has more
than 350 computers in need of
refurbishing, but with financial
support to pay for the office and
work area, utilities, software li-
censing and computer compo-
nents, the office will close on
June 1.
"Based on the fact that we ex-
clusively rely on financial sup-
port from our community to
cover our basic overhead, we cur-
rently find ourselves in dire
straights unless we are able to
garner financial assistance from
some generous folks in Central
Florida." Diarne Stanton, founder
and president of the charity,
said.
All donations are tax-deducti-
ble.
For more information on the
charity or the program, call 292-

Celebrate
Arthritis
Month

May is annually recognized as
National Arthritis Month.
Arthritis encompasses more
than 100 diseases and conditions
that affect joints, surrounding
tissues and/or connective tissues.
These diseases include rheuma-
toid arthritis, osteoarthritis, fi-
bromyalgia, gout, lupus, bursitis,
rheumatic fever and juvenile
rheumatoid arthritis.
"Exercise can play a big role
in improving function and les-
soning pain related to these con-
ditions," Dr. Randel Miller, a
board-certified Watson Clinic in-
ternist and rheumatologist, said.
"Almost everyone can benefit
from various physical activities
in the water where the buoyancy
of the water takes some of the
stress off some of the joints and
back."
Physical activity will help pre-
vent joints from becoming stiff
and painful.
Strengthening the muscles
will help support and protect
Sour joints. The stronger the
muscles and tissue around the
joints the better they will be able
to support and protect joints,
even those damaged by arthritis.
If you have arthritis or any of
the related conditions, being
physically active is an important
component of self-management.
Physical activity:
keeps your joints moving
keeps the muscles around
your joints strong
keeps bone and cartilage tis-
sue strong and healthy
improves your ability to do
daily activities
improves overall health
offers weight control
helps with cardiovascular
and lung strength
gives more restful sleep
offers more energy
is important to mental well-
ness
It is important to check with
your health care provider before
beginning an exercise program.
Keep it simple at first. Strive
for a goal of 30 minutes or more
of physical activity a day, three
or more days a week. If you need
to, build up to this or break it up
into three 10-minute sessions.
Find something you enjoy and
get moving.
Choose an activity you like
such as:
Walking
Biking
Swimming
Gardening
Dancing
Low impact aerobics
Tai Chi
Yoga

thritis, visit the Arthritis Foun-
dation web site at http://www.ar-

But he expressed doubts about
reopening, He said some suppli-
ers hadn't been paid, and it
would be difficult to establish
credit. .. .
"I did the best job I could. I'm,
sorry it happened. I apologize to
the people of Bartow," Lyristis
said.
John's Restaurant, which
added a cocktail lounge when
Polk County went "wet" more
than 40 years ago, has been a
landmark at Main Street and
U.S. Highway 17 for longer than
most Bartowans can remember.
It was established by John
Pittas, who 'operated it for
decades with his brother, George
Pittas. It retained the same
name as it was sold to the Pittas'
relatives. The most recent mem-
ber of the family to own John's,
Trifon Houvardas;, ran the busi-
ness for many years before sell-
ing the restaurant to Victor
Lopez, who continued to operate
it as John's.
Lopez closed the business in
2002 after reports circulated that
a cook working at the restaurant
had hepatitis A and that a cus-
tomer had died of the disease. No
link between the employee and
the death was ever established.
John's was one of several"
restaurants identified by the
Polk County Health Dept. as
having employees with the dis-
ease. An educational program by
the department emphasized the


importance of frequent hand-
washing by people involved in
food preparation, and all the
other restaurants weathered the
storm and reopened.
But Lopez said that his busi-
ness dropped from-serving 600 to
800 meals per day to a low of
about 20, and he closed the
restaurant in April 2002.
A few weeks later, however,
Lopez remodeled and reopened
the restaurant..
He closed it again in January
2004.
When Lopez closed the restau-
rant the second time, the busi-
ness owed the city more than
$16,000 in electric bills, a debt
which Lopez had been paying on
the installment plan.:
The Houvardas family, which
owned the building (and still
does, according to records at city
hall) paid $13,566.83 of the bill,
Ms. Hielscher said.
The balance of $3,118.80,
which the city determined was
owed by Lopez, was written off as
a bad debt, she said.
When the new owners,
Ioannidis and Lyristis, opened
the business in mid-2004, they
changed the name from John's to
Bartow Family Restaurant,
expressing concern that the
John's name was still linked with
memories of the hepatitis inci-
dent.
They extensively remodeled
the restaurant, and rebuilt a
steady clientele.

Polk County
Financial Project ID: 408268-1-21-01

From SR 60A to.Manor Drive in Bartow, the approved alternative consists of
widening the US 98/SR 60A intersection to provide three through travel lanes in
each direction of SR 60A. Dual right-turn lanes will be included for the westbound
movement, and dual left-turn lanes and an exclusive right-turn lane will be included
for the northbound movement. From Manor Drive to SR 540, the approved
alternative consists of reconstructing US 98 from the existing four-lane highway
to a six-lane highway.

The next phase of the project's development, the preparation of construction
plans, is scheduledto begin in fiscal year 2005/2006 of the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) Tentative Five-Year Work Program. Right-of-way
acquisition is tentatively scheduled to begin in fiscal year 2009/2010 for US 98
from Manor Drive to SR 540. Construction is not scheduled in the five-year work

Radio Controlled Airplane Buff

Shares His Hobby With Civic Club


By JANICE JARED
Staff Writer
Twenty years ago, pilot Jim
Nunnallee took to the skies in 20
ton airplanes for the United
States Air Force. He now flys 20
pound model planes for fun with
the IRCC, (Imperial Radio Con-
trol Club), out of Mulberry.
He explained his unusual
hobby -to*the Fort Meade Civic
Club on Thurdsy, May 19.
According to Nunnallee, flying
model airplanes has, especially
in the Central Florida area, be-
come a very popular hobby, with
perhaps as many as 400 active
members in various flying clubs
in Mulberry, Wauchula, Winter
Haven and Lakeland.
"These are real airplanes.
They are built like real air-
planes. They fly exactly like real
airplanes. The controls are the
same.",
He pointed out that the layout
of the controls is very similar to
an actual cockpit, just smaller
and with one exception.
"Of course there are no rud-
ders which would be controlled
by the feet, so the rudder peddle
is on the throttle stick.
"The handheld control panel
works exactly the same as a full
sized control panel in a normal
sized aircraft. These are just
smaller," Nunnallee said.
Another reason for the in-
crease in the popularity of the
sport is because of the miniaturi-
zation of radio equipment and
electronics, which began in the
early 1960s and is heavily domi-
nated by the Japanese.
He said the sport appeals to
many types gadget nuts, ex-
engineers, ex-pilots, those who
love to build or create, the me-
chanically inclined and those
love to work with wood.
One characteristic Nunnallee
said the radio controlled affician-
dos all share is age.
"There are no members under
21 years of age. This is not a
hobby for children. It is much too
expensive and takes too much
time and effort. It is mostly for
middle aged and older men," he

said.
"The sport must be done
through a club, because you need
area, a field and runway, a large
enough place to fly. You also
must have someone teach you.
"Most any experienced club
member will be glad to do this
for free. This is done with a
buddy box which your instructor
connects from his controls to
your controls. When you get into
trouble, he is able to take over.
"The problem learning to fly
one of these things is not when
you are going forward. The prob-
lem is when you have to fly back
to yourself. Everything is re-
versed, left is right, up is down.
If you are doing a three dimen-
sional maneuver, this is forever
reversing.
"You must teach your brain to
constantly reverse left, right, up,
down. It is an unnatural thing to
do and is learned by the young
faster than those who are older,"
said Nunnallee.
The hobby covers building
and flying every type of aircraft
imaginable, conventional air-
planes, mostly made from light-
weight wood, such as the one
Nunnallee flies, as well as heli-
copters, which are gaining in
popularity, and jets, which are
made from fiberglass.
Some do not want to spend
the hours necessary to build a
craft and just want to fly. These
people are able to buy aircraft
from others who have made
them.
Nunnallee said the hobby
could be enjoyed for as little as
$200, but the average cost of a
plane is perhaps $300. However,
there are those who have a con-
siderable amount of money in-
vested in the hobby. He has
about $1,500 already invested in
a partially finished WWI vin-
tage. It is made of balsa wood or
hardwood and covered with
cloth.
"Helicopters, are hard to learn
to fly, but very rewarding when
you do learn. They can get ex-
pensive. If you own helicopters,
it's like digging a hole in the
ground. Every couple of weeks,


you will throw $200 in it," he
added.
The hobby lures visitors from
all over the world as they engage
in their various specialty. Each
November the Lake Wales area
is a Mecca for jet lovers, who at-
tend that show. For helicopter
enthusiastic, Nunnallee said his
club in Mulberry sponsors a
show in November which will
draw 1,000 attendees.
"The range for flying is fur-
ther than the eye can see, say
4,000 to 5,000 feet, however,
flight is most likely in the 2,000
foot range, because when you get
beyond that, you are unable to
see where you are going."
Model airplanes run off etha-
nol, and five to 20 percent ni-
tromethane. The nitromethane
is used because it contains oxy-
gen in chemical storage, which is
released when heated. This extra
oxygen then can be used to burn
extra fuel and thus increase
power.
Most of the planes weigh be-
tween 12 and 14 pounds. Nun-
nallee said his WWI plane will
weigh 25 to 30 pounds when
completed.
Because of the low weights,
the planes don't reuire nearly as
much thrust. Many of the
smaller planes will lift off after
running only five or six miles per
hour.
One major difference is that
the model engines are not fired
with compression. There is no
spark plug, there is a glow plug
which is started electrically. The
glow plug continues to glow
much like the filament in a light
bulb.
Nunnallee said you can al-
ways find an enthusiast out fly-
ing at the fields seven days a
week, however, the clubs meet
once a month.
He said there is a great deal
of satisfaction when one has
spent the hours, the effort, the
money, stretched their knowl-
edge and creativity, built a
plane, and are then able to see it
fly and to bring it back safely.
"It's a good hobby, it keeps me
off the streets," he said.

AMATEUR GOLFER AND BARTOW MAYOR Leo Long-
worth (left) shares a laugh with Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd
at the Youth Villa sponsor, patron and media dinner following a
day of golf at the Bartow Golf Course. The patron tournament
was the kick-off event at the golf course before the weekend
Classic tournament. Event coordinator Debbie Burdett said of
Sheriff Judd, "It appears he is as enthusiastic about being a
part of this event as Sheriff Crow was in 'previous years."


Youth Villa Kicks Off

With Patron Scramble


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer
It's that time of year again.
Duffers from all over Polk
County and the rest of the state
are sharpening their spikes,
dusting off their plaid sweater
vests and argyle socks,,and prac-
ticing their putts. '
That's right it's time for the
43rd annual Youth Villa Classic
golf tournament.
The action got underway this
week with the warm-up tourna-
ment, the patron, sponsor and
media scramble.
According to event coordina-
tor Debbie Burdett, about 140
golfers hit the links on Tuesday
at the Bartow Golf Course.
Awards were given out for the
teams with the best and worst
scores as well as the median
score. Coming in first was the
team from Glenn Broom Insur-
ance Agency with a score of -13.
The team with the worst score
was from Clear Springs Land
Company, LLC, and the median
team, Progress Energy, finished
in the middle of the pack at 13th
place.
"From what I can tell, every-
ibody had a wonderful time and
the weather was great," she said.
Mrs. Burdett said the patron


tournament, which is non-com-
petitive and does not account for
handicaps, "sets the tone for the
weekend and begins the excite-
ment."
"It's sort of an ice breaker. It
brings everybody together in the
middle of the week," she added.
But the Youth Villa Classic is
not just about golf tournaments.
The whole purpose is to raise
funds for the Florida Sheriffs
Youth Ranches, which focus on
helping troubled teenage girls
become better adjusted and be-
come productive members of so-
ciety.
Some of the fundraising
events include a dinner and
dance show at the Bartow Civic
Center on Saturday evening and
a smaller music event at Peace
River Country Club on Friday
evening.
This year, Mrs. Burdett pre-
dicts the events to raise about
$17,000. Through 2004, the tour-
nament has raised $562,000 in
its 43 years of existence.
The women's golf tournament
will wrap up later today and the
Classic tournament will kick off
on Saturday and run through
Monday. Full results and photos
will be-posted in Thursday's edi-
tion of The Democrat.

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
Florida Avenue, Lakeland, FL 33813-7997, with the ac-

An Event 112 rears in the M-aking

Bartow's Class ofzoo5 Graduates -





It's been 112 years since the first group of graduating seniors in Bartow flipped the tassels on
their caps to the left. Back then it was known as the Summerlin Institute and the graduating class
was much smaller.
On Friday, more than 200 seniors from BHS and International Baccalaureate said their final
goodbyes to high school at the 2005 commencement ceremony. While it was the 112th graduation for
BHS, Bartow IB was celebrating its seventh.
Smiling seniors (center) proceeded past faculty and staff toward their seats in Bartow Memorial Stadium.
A huge crowd was on hand (counterclockwise from bottom left) to cheer on the graduates, spilling out of the
stands and around the fences.
The Bartow High School Golden Voices, directed by Glori Ann Snow, preceded the speeches with the singing
of "We Just Want to Thank You" by Mac Huff.
The International Baccalaureate seniors had plenty to be proud of, capturing recognition for having the best
advanced placement scores on the planet in English and world history as well.
BHS teacher Lloyd Harris opened and closed the ceremony by ringing the Summerlin bell, which was once
: used to ring in the school day at Summerlin Academy.
y "Bartow International Baccalaureate valedictorian Neal Bhutiani gave his address in front of an orange, blue
and white flower arrangement. Not only the valedictorian, Bhutiani showed his smarts by achieving perfect
scores on both the SAT and ACT tests.
Senior Wilfredo Zabala, who graduated with honors, received a diploma and" a handshake from BHS
Principal Ron Prichard. Zabala went out on top as a Yellow Jacket weightlifter, capturing an individual state
title and helping Bartow capture the team title as well.
BHS co-valedictorians Brad Heirs and Barbara Ganella had a tight race for the best grade point average.
After waiting anxiously for their final grades, both were surprised to have identical GPAs. As a result there was
no salutatorian named for 2005.
Neatly arranged in 20 stacks, the 200-plus diplomas rested next to the stage before they were handed out to
each graduate.
Opening speaker Ricky Johnson introduced the special guests at the event, including IB guidance counselor
Dr. Lou Katz, who is retiring at the end of the school year.

I Think I'll Just Go Fishin'


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
I said something last week I
haven't said in years.
Where it came from, I really
don't know. It's funny, you're
tootling along minding your own
business for weeks, maybe
months at a time, and then some-
thing you haven't thought about
for years pops into your noodle.
I don't remember what brought
it on, but I blurted out, "I think
I'll just quit everything and go
fishing."
Where the phrase came from is
a mystery because I can't remem-
ber the last time I went fishing.
It's tragic when a person gets so
busy he forgets about the truly
essential things of life.
There is nothing, in my mind
(at least that's my wife's opinion),
more essential in life than fish-
ing.
In the heart of my tackle box, I
am a true blue fisherman, espe-
cially if it's a cold morning and I
am waist deep in frigid water.
Two types of people indulge in
this business of fishing.
Some take up fishing as a
hobby to get away from the rat
race of life. And there is nothing
like fishing to do just that.
When at work they think of
fishing, and when fishing they
think of work. These are not real
fishermen, they just play one on
their holidays, and no self-
respecting sporting goods store


should be allowed to sell them
any fishing tackle.
Then there are those who are
born fishermen. It's not some-
thing they chose, just like nobody
chooses the color of their eyes or
the color of their skin or what
year they were born although
some fudge here a little.
My motto: a little fudge is good
for your soul.
These are just born fishermen
and there is nothing they can do
about it. Whether it's the sover-
eignty of God or predestination
I'm not sure, I just know it hap-
pens.
Sometimes the best thing a
person can do is drop everything
and just go fishing. If more people
did this, it might cut down on the
war and violence in our world.
People need to know several
things about "going fishing' and
fishermen in general. Fishermen
are an abused minority and gross-
ly misunderstood by the general
population.
As far as I know, there is no
voice standing up for these poor
souls. Maybe it's because voices
can't stand, and then there are
some voices I can't stand.
In the first place, fishing has
everything to do with the equip-
ment. And 'not just any equip-
ment will do. In some regards, it
takes a lifetime to acquire the
proper equipment to go fishing.
This is where the true blue
fishermen are greatly misunder-


stood.
No true blue fisherman would
ever think of going fishing with-
out his lucky hat. Going fishing
without your lucky hat is like
going to a restaurant without
your appetite what's the point?
This essential part of his fish-
ing equipment is lucky because it
hosts several lucky fishing lures
and flies all meticulously
arranged around the hat repre-
senting some story associated
with his fishing adventures. Some
stories may be true, but not all,
and in time the owner of the hat
can't remember which are true
and which are not.
Another misnomer about going
fishing has to do with catching
fish.
Let me state right here that
catching fish has absolutely noth-
ing to do with going fishing. In
fact, no true blue fisherman
would ever go fishing with the
idea of catching any fish. For the
most part, it is the furthest thing
from his mind.
When a fisherman goes fishing
and catches a fish, he has nothing
to talk about. And if there's any-
thing else a fisherman loves
doing, it is talking.
If, for example, a fishermen
goes fishing all day and catches
20 fish, there is only one subject
he will talk about when he gets
back.
No, it is not the 20 fish he
caught. After all, they are right in
front of you, what else is there to
say about it?
If the biggest fish, for instance,
is 13 inches, he cannot exaggerate
and say it is 18 inches.
The presence of the fish pre-


eludes stretching the truth no
that a fisherman would lie, h
just improves on the truth as he
sees it.
Often, when a fisherman does
catch a fish, he throws it back
under the pretense of it not beiig
big enough.
The singular subject of a fish-
ermen's talk when returning from
fishing is simply, "The One That
Got Away."
No matter how big his biggest
catch of the day is, The One That
Got Away outscales them all.
He may never'have seen that
fish, but it has nothing to do with
his recitation of The One That
Got Away. Something about that
fish, whether real or imaginary,
stirs the imagination of a trie
blue fisherman.
And, whether he saw that fish
or not, he can talk for week,
months, and even years about
that one.
A real fish in time spoils and
eventually stinks; however, The
One That Got Away always
improves with age.
I find myself in good compariy
in this area. No less a person thah
the apostle Peter did the same
thing.
He was frustrated and didn't
know what to do, so he did the
thing that came natural to him.
"Simon Peter saith unto then,
I go a fishing: They say unto hirn,
We also go with thee. They weit
forth, and entered into a ship
immediately; and that night they
caught nothing" (John 21:3 KJV).
I did not go fishing last week,
but just the thought of it was an
amazing elixir to my spirit.

Developing a Loving Relationship

The Bible tells us that "God is Love, and he who
.. abides in love abides in God, and God in him" and that
X J"We love Him because He first loved us" (1 John 4:16,
0...t:..',: 19). These verses are true not only between our


v .


I'


He who does not love does not know God, for
God is love.
New K.J.V 1 John 4:8


Heavenly Father and us, but also when we are
involved with others. Children will develop a love for
their parents because of the unselfish love their par-
ents have for them. Also, a wife or husband will devel-
op a stronger love for each other when their love is
returned to them. When someone dislikes us or offends
us, it is a natural instinct to distance ourselves from
them; however, when someone is loving and kind to us,
we have a tendency to want to draw closer to them.
God's perfect love for mankind is exemplified by His
giving of His only begotten Son to die for our sins. And,
just as His forgiving love is always extended to us, we
should also be forgiving of others. True forgiveness
breeds love, and discovering the good in others, and
discounting their faults, are essential for developing a
loving relationship.

Reflections On


Faith

By Roger Campbell


4. World Magazine reports that
4MIT student Amal Doral is
throwing a party he hopes will be
,-ne for all the ages.
r He's sponsoring the first, and
j probably the last, Time Traveler
I Convention at the Boston cam-
jpus.
j. "The chance that anybody
shows up is small, but if it hap-
jpens, it will be one of the biggest
rlevents in human history," Doral
jaid.
,s And to entice those traveling
:.back from the future, he's provid-
,ing chips and dip for all.
Cashing in on this free lunch,
however, will require proof of true
,ime traveler status.
j. Doral requires those arriving
to bring something like a cure for
cancer or a future sports
,.almanac.
SActually, we're all time travel-
ers; but we're traveling through
.,time to the future rather than
aback from it, carrying informa-
,tion about scientific break-
throughs or the names of sports
winnerss in advance to pad the
,pockets of gamblers today.
Time's great value is stressed
jn a number of Bible texts, but
the Psalmist seems to have been
jthe most conscious of using it
civisely, writing, "Lord make me to
know my end and what is the
.measure of my days" (Psalm
_.9:4).
-i He also saw the value of
investing, time wisely, praying,
"So teach us to number our days
that we may apply our hearts to
wisdom" (Psalm 90:12).
New Testament writers also
gave great attention to time.
James stressed the brevity of life
by comparing its length to a
apor that appears for a short
-time and then vanishes away.


Peter pointed out the mystery
of time by explaining that one
'day is with the Lord as 1,000
years and 1,000 years as one day
(2 Peter 3:8).
Time is priceless.
A dying queen is said to have
cried, "Millions in money for an
inch of time."
Each of us is allotted a certain
amount of time with part.of it
already spent. How then shall we
use what remains?
How do you want to use it?
How many of your remaining
-hours do you intend to spend in a
negative, critical, grumbling
mood?
Is this a needless question?
Perhaps not.
You may secretly enjoy being
down yourself or down on others
because of the attention it brings
from other complainers who
know that you will gladly furnish
them plenty of moaning material.
After a meeting with you, they
will have griping grist for weeks
to come.
Thankfully, there is a better
way to live.
We can seize each pleasant
moment and squeeze out every
ounce of joy it contains.
In' his helpful, best-selling,
book, "How to Win over Worry,"
John Edmund Haggai said:
"Give every moment your all.
Give your entire attention to the
work at hand, the person with
whom you are talking or dealing.
The Lord grants us time only in
the quantity that we can use it -
one moment at a time."
And in a return to the Psalms,
time travelers may discover the
best advice of all: "This is the day
which the Lord has made; we will
rejoice and be glad in it" (Psalm
118:24).
