REMEMBERING THOSE whose lives were taken by war, veterans from American Legion Post #3 held a Memorial Day service this morning at the veterans'
memorial walkway near Bartow Public Library. A group of less than 30 came to the service to sing the National Anthem, hear a brief speech by Post Commander Tom
Sage and listen to Taps, played by
bugler Fred Russell, followed by
a 21-gun salute. Walking on the

Charter Amendments


Go To Voters Next Year'


On Nov. 7, 2006, Polk County
voters will decide if they want to
make the county's five constitu-
tional officers elected department
heads who report to the county
manager, and to limit them to two
consecutive terms in office.
County commissioners will
hold a public hearing on June 15
on scheduling the charter amend-
ments for next year's general
election, but at Wednesday's com-
mission meeting, they left no
doubt as to their intent.
The alternative would be to
hold a special election sooner
than that.
County Attorney Joseph Jarret
told commissioners they had two
options calling a special elec-
tion at an earlier date, at an esti-
mated cost of $250,000 to
$300,000, or holding the referen-
dum during the general election
in 2006, at no added expenditure.
"I am not inclined to cost this


county any money,"
Commissioner Sam Johnson said.
Other commissioners agreed,
most vocally Chm. Jack Myers,
who said he was even questioning
the idea of continuing a charter
form of government.
Polk is one of only 19 charter
counties out of Florida's 67, a sta-
tistic which Jarret called
"telling."
Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson took exception to the
remark, and asked Jarret to
explain what the statistic meant.
"I would think logically, if this
way was so beneficial to the coun-
ty, all 67 would be using it,"
Jarret said.
Wilkinson also asked if the
amendments were approved, if
the commission would be able to
exercise a "line item veto" on bud-
gets of the sheriff, courts clerk,
tax collector, property appraiser,
and elections supervisor.


Courts Clerk Richard Weiss
said that commissioners can hold
line item discussion on constitu-
tional officers' budgets, but that
any unresolved disputes between
the commission and the officers
could be appealed to the governor.
Jarret said Florida law is
unclear as to whether this appeal
system would change if the char-
ter amendments were approved.
Ending further discussion,
Myers called the question, and
commissioners voted unanimous-
ly to hold a public hearing in June
on setting the charter referendum
for November of next year.
The two amendments were
proposed by citizen initiative, in
which voters signed petitions to
place the two charter changes on
the ballot. A third amendment,
which would cut the pay of the
constitutional officers in half, fell
61 signatures short.


Education Dominates Senator's


Tiger Bay Club Appearance


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

With this year's legislative ses-
sion in the books, it's time for crit-
ics to come in and grade how the
elected officials in Florida faired.
At the monthly Tiger Bay
meeting in Bartow on Monday, a
crowd of about 40 heard what
happened right from the source
when District 12 StateeSen. J.D.
Alexander explained how the ses-
sion will affect Polk Countians.
As the education appropria-
tions chairman, many of
Alexander's remarks centered on
education, especially education
issues in Polk.
He said the session allocated
$1.3 billion for the K-12 public
school system, including $50 mil-
lion in new money, and allocated
$110 million for reading pro-
grams, but problems still exist
about the distribution of the
Funds. Because taxable property
values vary greatly between poor
-ural counties and wealthy urban
counties there is great disparity


in the per-child funds raised by
property taxes, he said.
Alexander said there needs to
be an equalization of millage
rates, but doesn't foresee that
happening anytime soon.
"The political horsepower it
takes to do that is extreme," he
said.
Because not all students are
college bound, he said, workforce
development programs need to
become more specialized and in
depth.
The session set aside an addi-
tional $20 million for workforce
development programs across the
state, but problems still exist
because the funding mechanism
for disbursement is "lumpy" and
"not equitable," Alexander said.
"In the interim, I have request-
ed a study," he said. "We need to
find an equitable distribution
model. Right now, we just can't do
it. It ends up being a lot more
political than needs based."
When asked about problems
with schools f6r at risk children
being evaluated by the same stan-


dards as mainstream schools, the
senator said it was "a two-edged
sword."
While he supports programs
for at risk students, he said some
schools are using those programs
to filter students out of the main-
stream student body for the pur-
pose of inflating grades.
Alexander said Polk County
could learn from Broward County,
which, instead of spending more
money to meet class size require-
ments, increased teacher salaries
to the highest in the state and
subsequently attracted better
teachers.
He said that no study has
found smaller classes show any
increases in student achievement
after fourth grade.
"With regard to school class
size, as a ballot initiative that
sounds good to the voter when he
or she reads that, but economical-
ly, we are spending more money
on 'bricks and sticks' for school
construction instead of money on
teachers."
While he opposed the class size


ballot initiative, he said he saw it
as a "mandate that the voters
wanted more money and atten-
tion to education."
Alexander said that education
spending is a key component of
growth management, along with
roads and infrastructure. He
called them, "investments that
will pay long term dividends.
"These are important issues.
They are important for the quali-
ty of life, and important for the
economic climate in the county
and state."
He said it is impossible for the
state and Polk to stay ahead of
growth, but there are studies
available for counties to use to
better manage growth.
The senator said he plans to
run for reelection in 2008. He said
he has been asked by some to con-
sider running for Senate presi-
dent in 2010, but that his political
aspirations end there.
"I have no intentions to run for
anything beyond state senate," he
said.


Scouts Honor Ernest Smith


The name Ernie Smith is not
an unfamiliar one around Bartow,
and maybe even more familiar in
the ranks of Scouting, which
sounds strange because the octo-
genarian was never actually a
Boy Scout.
On Thursday, members of the
Thunderbird District of the Boy
Scouts of America honored Smith
with the Distinguished Citizen
Award, recognizing his lifetime of
service to Scouting.
After a stint in the Army Air
Corps, Smith moved to Tampa in
1946, where the minister of Hyde
Park Presbyterian recruited him
to be help out with the local
Scouting group, Troop 23.
"Coming out of the service, the
minister said everybody had to
have a job, so he asked me to help
out with Troop 23," Smith said. "I
wasn't a Scout as a boy, but I said
'okay, I'll try it.'"
Smith found a home in
Scouting as the ideals are similar
to those of his Christian faith.
"The church is the logical place
for Scouting to come from," he
said. "That's where you learn
about living and how to be a
respectable person."
The next thing he knew, Smith
was completely in charge of the
troop, a position he held for two


years, before relocating to Bartow
in 1948, where he started the
Bartow Ford Company.
He jumped into troop leader-
ship for Troop 147 in Bartow and
has been involved ever since.
At the ceremony, city


Commissioner Brian Hinton
called Smith, "a friend to all of
us," and attributed his reputation
as an upstanding citizen to his

levels of Scout leadership. (Staff photo by Rustin Dwyer)

Why


An enhanced state website
has been created with a feature
that for the first time lets par-
ents and other Floridians zero in
on registered sex offenders and
predators who live nearby.
The sexual offender website,
which is maintained by FDLE,
now offers the ability for citizens
to more easily identify sexual
predators and offenders living in
or around their specific neigh-
borhood or local schools.
With almost 35,000 registered
sex offenders and predators, the
FDLE database is one of the
largest of its kind in the nation.
Over the past 10 years, FDLE
has provided a website giving
Floridians the ability to search
for sex offenders by zip code,
county, city or name.
As of now, the updated site in-
cludes a user-friendly Neighbor-
hoodTrac search system devel-
oped by Pitney Bowes to give
parents and others a more tar-
geted search area ranging up to
five miles.
This new feature, which will


allow parents to search specific
areas near their home, child's
school or neighborhood park,
should greatly assist parents
who are trying to protect their
children, said Attorney General
Charlie Crist.
The improvements to the web-
site are the result of a new soft-
ware program recently donated
to the State of Florida by Pitney
Bowes.
The total value of the system,
including software, mainte-
nance, database subscriptions
and professional services, is ap-
proximately $647,000.
The website enhancements
can be accessed through the At-
torney General's home page at
myfloridalegal.com or the FDLE
home page, located at www.fdle.
state.fl.us.
These links also lead to infor-
mation about Florida sexual of-
fender and predator registration
laws, highlighted offenders who
are wanted for failure to regis-
ter, and other related informa-
tional links.

Looking for Adventure?


Come Visit Main Street


Few things except perhaps the
approach of another hurricane could
cause as much nervousness for down-
town Bartow merchants as the redesign
of Main Street.
The work began in April, and in our
estimation, it could hardly be going
better.
Yes, there is no parking on Main
Street, or on a couple of side streets.
Yes, sidewalks have been narrowed.
Yes, the appearance of disruption has
caused a fall-off in business for some
Main Street merchants.
All of this was anticipated, and from
what we're hearing, it is no worse than
expected, and probably a little less dis-
ruptive.
We at The Democrat have had a front
row seat. Although we are a half-block
off of Main Street, our parking lot has
been dug up, and will become a land-
scaped oasis. We agreed to the propos-
al enthusiastically in exchange for
dedicated curbside parking in'front of
our office.
Our customers and our staff have
been inconvenienced, forced to use dif-
ferent entrances that sometimes change
several times a day. But all of them
have kept a sense of humor, and we are
convinced that the 100 block of South
Florida Avenue will be vastly more
attractive, and more customer friendly,
by November.
Our interaction with the contractor,
David Nelson Construction Co., and in
particular with Mike Shain, superin-
tendent for the job, has been cordial
and productive. We're hearing similar
reports from others. This firm was
selected in part for its track record of
success in working with businesses to
minimize disruption while undertak-
ing such projects.
Work is moving rapidly; the contrac-
tor can win a $75,000 bonus by finish-


ing ahead of schedule.
Despite the disruption, business on
Main Street is alive and well. Some
Bartowans are making a special point
of patronizing Main Street merchants
even more than they normally would.
It is a healthy attitude.
Yes, patrons may have to park a block
or two from their destination, and that
inconvenience will continue through
much of the Summer.
On the other hand, a walk down
Main Street has become just a bit of an
adventure. Compared to the inconve-
nience of living without electricity or a
roof overhead as many Polk
Countians did less than a year ago a
stroll down Main Street is a walk in the
park, albeit a dusty park.
Like many other downtown busi-
nesses, we had our misgivings when
the proposal for Main Street redesign
first surfaced.
With each passing day, we become
more confident that the long range ben-
efits will be well worth the months of
inconvenience.
Main Street is alive and well, and will
be a more vibrant destination when the
project is completed.
If you haven't visited downtown
Bartow recently, come take a look. It's
more than a visit... it's an adventure.

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

An Oasis in the Making


As observed in the big print
on the left side of this page,
rebuilding of Bartow's Main
Street (and a couple of side
streets) is moving along
smoothly.
There's a small project with
considerably less impact on
the city's traffic flow for which
our staff and customers have a
front row seat.
Early in the planning
process, Doug Leonard
announced that he was going
to approach several down-
town merchants about the
possibility of giving up their
off-street parking lots for land-
scaped areas. He turned to me,
and told me I was on his list.
The building in which we
publish was built in 1908,
occupied on Aug. 17, 1908, by
"Dial and Read's new livery
stable."
The Courier-Informant
newspaper reported: "They
now have one of the finest liv-
ery stable buildings in this
part of the state and are to be
congratulated on its comple-
tion."
The parking lot probably
had a hitchin' rail back in the
day.
Within a few years, reflect-
ing the changes in the times,
the building became Read's
Garage.
Our parking lot, which had


10 to 12 spaces (depending on
how much attention you paid
to the faded lines on the pave-
ment and how much
encroachment there was by
the ficus tree just beyond our
property line) undoubtedly
was a major factor in our
selection of this building.
I say "probably" because I
was serving my two-year
hitch in the active Army at the
time, and nobody thought to
mention to me that Frisbie
Publishing Co., Inc., had
bought what was then the
Howell Buick building, or that
I had been elected vice-presi-
dent of the company after
Granddad's death.
Fast forward to 2005, 41
years after we moved into the
building.
A plan developed by the
Glatting, Jackson landscape
architect firm and refined in
several consultations calls for
our parking lot to be trans-
formed into six little gardens
with two Schumard oaks and
a small patio.
In exchange for providing
land for this little oasis (for
which we will assume mainte-
nance responsibilities), the city
will dedicate to our use the
angled curbside parking
spaces that will be created in
front of our building. It is, we
believe, a win-win situation


for the city and for our compa-
ny.
Over the past few weeks,
Mike Shain, superintendent
for David Nelson
Construction Co., has been
practically like a member of
our staff. He has consulted
with us almost daily as the
project has moved along, and
even moved the 11 concrete
parking bumpers into "our
temporary staff and customer
parking area across the street.
Removal of the parking lot
may not have quite the excite-
ment of an architectural dig in
St. Augustine, but it's the clos-
est thing we're likely to expe-
rience in Bartow.
When we bought the build-
ing, we had one inch of
asphalt spread over the
uneven concrete parking lot.
We never really wondered
what was beneath it, though
we had discovered a water
meter box at the edge of the
street that didn't connect to
anything.
As backhoes, front end
loaders, and a masonry saw
dug up the parking lot, we
discovered areas where there
was as much as eight inches of
concrete.
Eight inches of concrete?
We're not talking parking
lot standards; we're talking
Interstate highways.


Most of the parking lot had
at least four inches of concrete.
There were even a few
bricks beneath the concrete,
which I've got to suspect date
back to livery stable days.
There were decorative
grooves carved in one layer of
concrete.
There was a cast iron water
pipe, two to three inches in
diameter, that at one time had
been connected to the
orphaned meter box, and at
least two other smaller aban-
doned water lines, all running
diagonally beneath the park-
ing lot.
Mike and his folks have
maintained access for bur staff
and customers to one of our
front doors for all but a few
hours, and customers have
found their way into the front
office through the pressroom
when they had to.
It's a sometimes noisy,
sometimes dusty, but always
exciting project. After it's fin-
ished, we'll probably have a
little garden party to introduce
the oasis to the community.
We may even repaint the
building and replace some
carpet and invite the public
inside for a peek.
But you don't have to wait.
Come by and take a look at
our work in progress. We'll be
glad to share the excitement.

Hospice Seeks
Fix A Better Plate To Lose Volunteers


Weight This Summer


The weight-loss formula is
pretty straightforward eat
less, lose pounds and maintain a
healthy body weight.
In our fast-paced world of
quick meals and super-sized por-
tions, anyone choosing to eat
sensibly can use a tool that is lit-
erally right in front of them a
dinner plate.
In the new guide "The Choice
Is Mine," the TOPS Club, Inc.,
offers members tips to visualize
portions by dividing the plate.
Eating using the plate method
means actually feeling full with
fewer calories.
To visualize, diners should
visually divide their plates this
way:
Fill 1/4 of the plate with
whole grains, pastas, potatoes or
rice.
Fill 1/4 with meat, poultry,
fish or other protein.
* Fill the remaining half with
vegetables and fruits.
"It's a quick and easy diet
plan," TOPS advisor Anne Ru-
elle said.
Here are other tips about por-
tion control:
A 1/2 cup serving of canned
fruit, vegetables or potatoes
looks like half a tennis ball.
Three ounces of meat, fish
or chicken is about the size of a


deck of playing cards or the palm
of your hand.
A one-ounce serving of
cheese is about the size of your
thumb.
A one-cup serving of milk,
yogurt or fresh greens is about
the size of your fist.
One teaspoon of oil is about
the size of your thumb tip.
When dining out:
Eat only half of your meal
and take the other half home or
eat it for lunch the next day.
Share a meal or dessert
with a friend.
Ask to substitute. Steamed
vegetables or a side salad can be
exchanged for French fries.
Request all sauces and
dressings on side. Dip your fork
into the fatty dressing for a taste
with each bite, instead of pour-
ing it over your food.
The effects of these small
changes could have far-reaching
effects. People who eat less, exer-
cise and consume foods rich in
minerals and vitamins live
longer, disease-free lives.

TOPS Club, Inc., is a network
of nonprofit, noncommercial
weight-loss support groups. For
information, visit www.tops.org
or call 1-800-932-8677.

59-year involvement with
Scouting.
Smith was to be presented
with a statue, as all award recip-
ients are, but asked that the cost
be donated to the local Scout
troop instead. In lieu of a statue,
Smith was presented with a
plaque.
Smith remained humble
throughout the ceremony, thank-
ing everyone for "making such a
fuss" over him. He said he will
continue to work with Scouting
for as long as he can and said he
hopes more people get involved.
"If everybody in our govern-
ment would be trained in the
ideals of Scouting," he said, "We'd
really have a top notch country."

FSC Golfers Top Leaderboard Going


Into Youth Villa Classic's Final Day


Florida Southern's golf pro-
gram is well represented through
the first two days of the Youth
Villa Classic golf tournament, but
they have plenty of opposition
nipping at their heels.
Three of the top five golfers are
FSC students or faculty, including
the leaders, Brian Richey, an 18-
year-old member of the FSC golf'
team who took the youth division
title in 2004, and Robbie Davis,
the FSC women's golf coach. Both *
are tied for the lead at 140
First day leader Bruce
Scamehorn, who shot dual 33s on
the first day of action, posted a 3
over 75 on Sunday to fall into sec-
ond place at 141. He is tied with
Richey's FSC teammate, Brett
Blondell, and W.K. Himelsbaugh
of Leesburg.
In a tight 36-golfer field, seven
other golfers are within four
strokes of the lead, including
three-time tournament champion
Jeff Fleeman (144) and Webber
International golfer Tiger Godwin
(144).
Fleeman captured the title last
year, and is poised to make anoth-
er run at it with back to back 72s.
Godwin fell out of contention in
2004 with a final day triple-bogey
on the 11th hole, but followed that
with a promise: "I will win it next
year. I guarantee."
Godwin helped his case with
four straight birdies, leading to a
four under 68 on Sunday, making
up ground from his'76 the previ-
ous day.
Jim Morris, an eight-time run-
ner-up in the tournament, is sit-
ting eight strokes off the pace at
148.
Lakeland High School is domi-
nating the youth division with
first-day leader Logan Blondell
holding his lead with rounds 71
and 70. He is followed by his
teammates Kelly McHugh (148)


and Randall Anderson (149).
Leaders will tee off from the
first tee at 1 p.m. today and live


coverage of the back nine will
begin at 4 p.m. on WWBF 1130
AM.


IT'S TAKEN 35 YEARS, but if you ask the members of the Bartow
Women's Golf Association, the wait was worth it. Bartow took the cov-
eted title of low gross score in the Polk County Sheriff's Youth Villa
Classic Women's Tournament, a feat they have never accomplished. To


top it off; the team won the low net competition as well. Team mem-
bers are (from left) Ethel Smith, Yvonne Cole, Pat Lowery, Polk
County Sheriff Grady Judd, Carol Lowden, Martha Post, Mandy
Singletary, Kim Goedecke and Mary Bourque. (Photo provided)


Bartow Teams Sweep Villa Women's Tournament

S For 10 Stroke Victory and First Ever Title


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

For 35 years, the Bartow
Women's Golf Association
(BWGA) has watched as players
from all over the state annually
descend on the Bartow Golf
Course for the Youth Villa
Women's Golf Tournament.
And each year they have had
to sit idly by as the trophy was
handed to someone else.
This year, however, was differ-
ent. This year, the teams from
Bartow made sure no one would
walk away with what they consid-
er rightfully theirs the champi-
onship trophy.
They made sure of this by dom-
inating the 22-team field by 10
strokes in the low gross competi-
tion for a two-day score of 305.
Bartow also captured the low net


ON A HOT AND MUGGY SUNDAY afternoon, Florida Southern
golfer Brian Richey scrambles to get his ball out of a trap at the
Bartow Golf Course. Richey, who won last year's Youth Villa youth
division title, is gunning for a win in the championship division,
which wraps up this afternoon. He is currently tied for the lead in a
36 player field with a two-day score of 140. (Staff photo by Rustin

competition with a score of 253.
"We really had a desire this
year," said unofficial team captain
Ethel Smith. "More than we've
ever had in the past."
"In the past we've played good
on the first day but on the second
day everyone would get worse,"
she said. "This year, on the second
day, everyone pulled together and
started playing better than ever."
Playing on the A team for
Bartow were BWGA Chairman
Pat Lowery, newcomer and for-
mer Florida Southern player Kim
Goedecke, Carol Lowden, and
Martha Post.
Leading the B team were
Smith and Mary Bourque as one
duo and Mandy Singletary and
Yvonne Cole, who were playing in
their first Villa tournament.
The action kicked off on
Wednesday at 9 a.m., as
announced by a helicopter from

the sheriff's department buzzing
the golf course at a very low alti-
tude, with sirens blaring.
After the first round, the A
team from Bartow was leading in
the gross division with a score of
153, while the B team was lead-
ing the net group with a score of
127.
Lowery and Goedecke tied for
the lowest round of the first day,
both with an even par 72. Lowden
and Post both shot 81s to add to
the total for the day.
Despite the stellar efforts,
Bartow was only leading the
Cleveland Heights team from
Lakeland by one shot.
In the final round on Thursday,
Bartow's A team bettered their
first day score by one, for a total
round of 152. Lowden and Post
had the low round of the day with
a 75.
The B team also exceeded


expectations with an 88 to cap-
ture low net honors.
"This was an awesome tourna-
ment," said Post. "We've come so
close and even won the low net
one year, but to win both net and
gross, that was great."
The win was icing on the cake
for the BWGA, whose golf season
began in September and ended at
the beginning of the month. The
group will now focus on planning
future events and trying to
increase membership in hopes of
next year's title defense.
In, the meantime, they can
enjoy the fruits of their victory -
the tournament trophy which
will be on display at the Bartow
Golf Course for the rest of the
year.
"You can't imagine how happy
we are," said Smith. "We'll be
grinning for more than a month."


No man who is occupied in doing a very difficult thing, and
doing it very well, ever loses his self-respect.
