Fire Destroys 2


Downtown Buildings


Firefighters Able To Save Third Building


By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor
Firefighters waged battle
todayy against an intense blaze in
downtown Bartow a battle that
will continue into the night.
Firefighters, now in building
overhaul mode, will remain on
;he scene through demolition,
although the fire was declared
inder control at 11:56 a.m. by
LDeputy Chief Bobby Pitman.
Two buildings in the 200 block
)f the north side of Main Street
vere destroyed, but a third build-


ing was saved. Fire Chief Jay
Robinson said he was confident
that the third building in the
block could be saved.
Responding to a smoke alarm
around 7 a.m., firefighters
entered the building housing
Gateway Insurance and Jerue
Trucking, at the northwest corner
of Wilson Avenue and Main
Street. That building formerly
housed Tate-Philips Hardware.
They fought the fire on the sec-
ond floor with a 2-1/2" hose, but
didn't have enough personnel to
keep the fire in check, Fire Chief


Jay Robinson said. The fire start-
ed about the time shifts change,
at 7 a.m.
"If we'd had three or four more
people, we could have stopped it
at Gateway," he said.
Calls went out for mutual aid,
and at least five other depart-
ments responded with ladder
trucks, engines and personnel.
"By the time we had enough peo-
ple, it was too hot" to stay inside


the building, the chief said.
Another concern was the heavy
air conditioning units on the roof,
which could kill someone if they
fell.
Emergency medical units and
the Red Cross also were on scene
as the fight continued.
Streets were cordoned off for
several blocks, so people walked

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

Stem Cell Research Is Not Abortion


Editorial











Weather Service Bill


Defies Explanation


When it comes to the issue of
abortion, I am, as are many oth-
ers, both pro choice and pro life.
Pro choice, in that I don't
believe this is a decision to be
made by government (or by me)
for anybody else.
Pro life, because that is my
choice.
For the life of me, I cannot
understand why a government
that allows abortion on demand
- and until recently, the horren-
dous procedure commonly called
"partial birth abortion" oppos-
es stem cell research.
To the extent that I understand
it, stem cell research involves tak-
ing microscopic cells from human
embryos that have been created
in a laboratory through artificial


fertilization procedures and
using them to develop cures for
everything from spinal injuries to
Alzheimer's disease.
These are embryos that were
created for couples who were
unable to conceive a child
through the normal process.
Again trusting to my incomplete
understanding, these apparently
are embryos which will not be
brought to term, presumably
because there are multiple
embryos created in the laboratory
for some couples.
An article I read last week in
"The Week" magazine reports
there are 400,000 such embryos
currently in existence, embryos
for which there is no intent to
bring to term. They are clinical


byproducts with no future.
President Bush puts stem cell
research in the same class as abor-
tion, which he opposes. To me,
that's like putting a haircut on a
par with removal of a ruptured
appendix.
That scientists are able to cre-
ate embryos in a laboratory set-
ting for otherwise infertile cou-
ples is a marvelous advance in
science.
That there is a byproduct of
that process that could be used to
make wounded bodies and dys-
functional minds whole again is
equally marvelous.
Abortion is an intensely emo-
tional issue, and I do not expect
(or even wish) to change even
one person's mind on the topic.


To put stem cell research in the
same category is absurd, and, I
would suggest, even irresponsi-
ble.
Hopefully members of
Congress will come to that real-
ization in sufficient numbers to
override a promised Presidential
veto.
It is too late for stem cell
research to repair Christopher
Reeves' spinal cord or Ronald
Reagan's or my father's -
mind.
But there are millions more
whose lives could be made infi-
nitely better through stem cell
research. They should not be
denied that possibility for such a
spurious reason.


In politics, as in life, we are often con-
strained to look at a decision and ask
"What were they (or "What was I) think-
ing?"
And the most honest answer often is: "It
seemed like a good idea at the time."
But sometimes even that one-size-fits-all
answer is insufficient.
Such is the case with a bill in Congress
that would prohibit the National Weather
Service from giving weather forecasts to
the public.
That's right.
Except for issuing severe weather warn-
ings, the forecasts of the National Weather
Service would remain a state secret.
Except for private weather-forecasting
services.
Neither the Weather Service nor its par-
ent organization, the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration, has com-
mented on this convoluted legislation.
Florida's senior United States senator,
Bill Nelson, (D-Tallahassee) has.
Nelson has written to President Bush,
urging him to oppose the legislation.
The act was introduced by Congressman
Rick ,Santorum (R-Pennsylvania) on the
premise that it would keep the federal gov-
ernment from competing with private
weather services.
The absurdity of that premise is that the
National Weather Service was created by
Congress in 1870, while AccuWeather, Inc.,
one of the largest and best known private
weather forecasters, was founded in 1962,
which is 92 years after the federal govern-
ment entered the still-imperfect science of
forecasting the weather.
Two days before Santorum filed his bill,
Accu-Weather, Inc., made a $2,000 contri-
bution to Santorum's political action com-
mittee.
Santorum said that was a coincidence.
Sure. Accu-Weather could have given
two grand to any of the 595 members of
Congress at;any time; it was just coinci-
dence that the gift went to Santorum two


BARTOW County commission-
ers are peering over the precipice of
enacting probably the largest cumu-
lative tax increases in Polk County
history. After already creating/rais-
ing 19 since 1988, 21 if sales taxes for
schools and indigent healthcare are
included, we're now considering
property tax hikes of 29 percent in-
county and. 13 percent for cities.
Harming all,' particularly those on
fixed incomes, this will damage the
business climate, counterproductive
to raising desired revenues for infra-
structure. improvements.
Though climbing a mountain of
seemingly insurmountable infra-
structure :needs;, we're embracing a
sheer fall. Gov. Bob Graham talked of
this inmhis mid-1980s State of the State
address.,". 7 -
"We must grasp the thorny net-
tle," he 'said of troubled economic
times. 'Though the vine growing
alone on sheer rock face is painful to
grasp, it alone :can save mountain
climbers who have.lost their footing.
Polk, too; must lea~r to live within
her meais, reaching out to a brighter
tomorrow that will attract quality
jobs for our.children.
Total county revenues since FY
2001-02 have "'doubled from
$492,308,294. to FY 2004-05 of
$999,869,798,(staff figures). On a scale
devised by David Osboume in "The
Price "of Government" Polk
Counhans sent 6._7r of total personal
income to county government in
FY2004-05. That ranks Polk higher
than yeia' 2000 numbers listed by
Osbourne for-. -Pinellas (2.1%)
Hillsborpugh (3,6%o), Orange (3.6%),
Palm Beach (2.1%) and even Miami-
Dade (6.1%). -


days before he filed a bill that would bene-
fit his modest benefactor.
AccuWeather's CEO and his brother, its
executive vice-president, have given more
than $11,000 to Santorum and the
Republican Party in the past two years.
They assert there is no connection between
the campaign gifts and Santorum's bill.
Just a couple of American entrepreneurs
supporting the political process.
Santorum's bill would not scale back the
Weather Service on the premise that it's
not needed, now that Accu-Weather and
other companies provide a similar service.
No, it specifically directs that it continue
gathering data through its satellites, bal-
loons, weather stations, and radar.
Only instead of making that information
available to the taxpayers who are paying
for it, it would furnish its data only to pri-
vate companies.
Let's assume that the contributions are
coincidental; indeed, let's hope that a con-
gressman can't be influenced to introduce
a bill for only $2,000.
Dropping that issue from consideration,
let's then try to find a reason any reason
why a government agency should work
for private industry, and be specifically
prohibited from sharing its work product
with the taxpayers.
Any reason?
S Any reason at all?

Citizens can spend their own
money better than government can.
In 1999, commissioners .voted 4-to-
Randy for a tax package chronicled
in The Democrat and other local
papers. It was "designed to generate
.$600 million over thirty years for
county roads" (Ledger 5-22-99, Billy
Townsend, reporter). Townsend com-
pared that favorably to the the "$339
million in unfunded road projects."
Thirteen capacity projects, such as
the three-mile stretch of County
Road 540-A now under construction,
were to be completed. Also thought
to be funded were intersections and
20 or so collector road projects.
In 2000 those were whittled to
numerous successful intersection
projects and a $65 million bond for
six capacity projects. Listed then at
$6.9 million, the three-mile 540-A
project is now tagged at $39 million
and growing. Most of the money for
the six projects has come from other
county, state and federal funds.
Commissioner Bob English's plan
still lists $300 million in road needs,
but staff warily has not outlined it
plans to spend the one-mill property
tax for roads to be added in
September for all residents.
Polk could be taxed back into the
Dark Ages.
Hoisting property taxes one-third
is sufficiently outrageous, but he's
opening Pandora's Box with MSTUs.
Foreshadowed by the Public Service
Tax initiated at 2% for roads in 1999,
just raised to the 10% cap for non-
necessities, English's two-mill MSTU
could quickly rise to the 10-mill cap,
doubling taxes and making you more
the serf, a vassal on your own prop-
erty.


Today's needs can be met through
creative use of current funding
sources (I've detailed $16 million),
cuts ($11 million), raising impact fees
and economizing. Storefront libraries
as I proposed were high-balled by
county administration at $2 million
each. Meanwhile, Lakeland is
proposing one for $150,000 with a
$300,000 grant.
We have an "Efficiency
Committee" -as voted by the people,
just beginning. They are looking at
ways to reduce cost of government
throughout Polk County as their con-
sultants initiated in
Louisville/Jefferson County, Ky. The
county commission will fund those
consultants by as much as $600,000.
They will also examine whether
putting the constitutional officers
under the charter would make them
more efficient as will citizens before
voting on that very issue next year.
Why hastily pile on inefficiency pro-
ducing tax increases?
"Taxation is necessary, but it could
become confiscation; Police are nec-
essary but they could become
Gestapo," said an apropos George
Will, Sunday, on ABC News "This
Week." As Ronald Reagan said,
"Government big enough to give us
everything we want is big enough to
take everything we have." Maybe
S. L. Frisbie is right, "We don't get all
the government we pay' for, and for
that we can be thankful."

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Once To Every Man and Nation


Last week, Deep Throat, was
revealed! What excitement! What
memories!
He is a benevolent, white-
haired man in a wheelchair. His
identity has been concealed for
many years, since Richard
Nixon's last days in the White
House. Probably the best kept
secret of all time.
The Washington Post head-
lines on Friday, August 9, 1974,
announced that "Richard
Milhouse Nixon will resign the
presidency of the United States at
noon today." I suddenly feel very
old.
Sort of like the days when peo-
ple asked each other, "Where
were you when Kennedy was
shot?"
I was the organist/choirmaster
at an Episcopal church and my

---t


best friend was the church secre-
tary at the time. She was older
than I was and a Yellow Dog
Democrat, who really had a hissy
when Nixon was re-elected.
She just knew he was a crook
- don't ask me how. We went
together to vote when he was
elected for the second time.
Shortly after that election, she
had a stroke and was confined to
the hospital.
The country was full of unrest.
The Watergate hearings had
droned on and on, and
Haldeman, Erlichman and even
Rosemary Woods, the President's
secretary, were under suspicion.
She had meddled with a tape
from the President's office that
had mysteriously been erased in
the most damning places.
I was responsible for selecting


the hymns and giving the list to
the secretary in time for them to
be put in the program for the
Sunday service. The Episcopal
hymnal had hymns for every
occasion. The closing hymn for
that Sunday was, "Once to Every
Man and Nation." I had selected
it early in the week. As the con-
gregation sang it and the choir
processed from the choir loft, it
seemed like it was written espe-
cially for that Sunday.
"Once to Every Man and
Nation, comes the moment to
decide.
"In the strife of truth and false-
hood, for the good or evil side.
"Some great cause, God's new
Messiah, offering each the bloom
or blight,
"And the choice goes by forev-
er, twixtt that darkness and that


light."
I don't know if that hymn is in
the new Episcopal hymnal, but it
is a powerful hymn and seemed
appropriate for the occasion. I
went out to the parking lot, got.
into my VW Beetle, and turned
on the radio just in time to hear
that Nixon's plane had left
Washington to return him to

A list of Florida's top 10
scams used to cheat investors
was released by Florida's Chief
Financial Officer Tom Gallagher.
e Gallagher said that while his
department is always on the
lookout for crooks peddling bo-
gus investments, the best de-
fense against these characters
pften is a vigilant citizenry.
"The calls we get from Floridi-
ians to check out an investment
or the person selling it often lead
us to unregistered investments
and unlicensed salesman and
brokers," said Gallagher. "When
the public calls us to verify a
deal, they not only protect them-
selves, they might also protect
'others by tipping off our investi-
gators."
The top 10 threats to Florida
investors for 2005 are:
S1. Ponzi Schemes The
demisee is simple: pay early in-
,estors with money raised from
lter investors. The only people
]ho make money are the pro-
moters who set the Ponzi in mo-
tion. On July 30, 2004, Charles
William Cox, of Fort Myers, and
Charles D. Gregory Jr., of Pensa-
cola, were sentenced for running
the schemes "European Market-
ing Group," "Mammoth Capital"
and "Skyward Enterprises." In-
vestors' money was laundered
through various U.S. and off-
shore businesses and bank ac-
counts and then misappropri-
ated by the defendants. Cox was
sentenced to 48 months and
Gregory was sentenced to 23
months in prison. They agreed to
pay more than $2.7 million in
restitution.
2. Unlicensed Individuals
Selling Securities Anyone
selling securities without a valid
securities license should be a red
alert for investors. Call 1-800-
342-2762 or go to www.fldfs.com
to verify before you buy.


Children and adults can enjoy
d free sample of Florida water-
mhelon on June 25.
SFlorida Department of Agri-
dulture and Consumer Services
has teamed up with Wal-Mart
and the Produce for Better
Ilealth Foundation to encourage
children to eat more fresh fruits
and vegetables for a healthier
lifestyle.
Families who visit Wal-Mart's
700 Supercenters and Neigh-
rhood Markets on June 25
om 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. will find
,oduce sections featuring char-
ters and themes from the up-
ming "Fantastic Four" chil-
en's action movie.
r The movie, which will be re-
lased on July 8, is based on the
cassic comic book strip that fo-
cses on astronauts who have
become super heroes.
"These popular comic book he-
rbes will help capture children's
attention about the importance


3. Unregistered Invest-
ment Products Con artists
bypass stringent state registra-
tion requirements to pitch viati-
cal settlements, pay telephone
and ATM leasing contracts, and
other investment contracts with
the promise of "limited or no
risk" and high returns. James
Dent, of Plantation, was sen-
tenced in April of 2004 for the
sale of unregistered securities.
Dent is serving eight years pro-
bation and was ordered to pay
$290,000 in restitution.
4. Promissory Notes -
Empty promises can leave these
notes worth less than the paper
they are printed on. On Feb. 23,
2004, Alfred Michael Jaillette, of
Altamonte Springs, president of
World Vision Entertainment,
was sentenced to 51 months in-
carceration and ordered to pay
restitution of $18,973,279 for the
sale of guaranteed promissory
notes which were backed by a
shell company with no assets.
5. Senior Investment
Fraud Because of their access
to a lifetime of savings, seniors
continue to face investment
fraud by con artists peddling un-
secured promissory notes and
other investments that are ei-
ther fraudulent or unsuitable for
them. On Aug. 12, 2004 Philip
Mehl, age 65, of Stuart, was sen-
tenced to 20 years and ordered to
pay restitution for running work-
shops and advertisements that
offered 10 percent returns on in-
vestments that were guaranteed
against loss. The scam sold more
than $20 million of these bogus
securities.
Last year lawmakers passed
the Senior Annuity Suitability
law which was proposed by Gal-
lagher. It requires annuities to
be compatible with the needs of
the person purchasing it.
6. High-Yield Investment


of healthy eating," Florida Agri-
culture Commissioner Charles
H.'Bronson said. "Attracting
children to the grocery store pro-
duce section and encouraging
them to sample fresh fruits and
vegetables can help them dis-
cover that healthy eating can be
fun, too."
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Serv-
ices is providing free samples of
fresh Florida watermelon, a tra-
ditional summertime favorite, in
107 Florida Wal-Mart Supercen-
ter produce sections during the
June 25 event.
The "Fresh from Florida" logo
also will be featured on point-of-
sale and display materials pro-
moting watermelon and other
Florida-grown produce.
The Produce for Better Health
Foundation's "5 A Day The Color
Way" encourages young people
to get their five daily servings of
fresh fruits and vegetables.


Schemes Con artists lure in-
vestors with promises of triple-
digit returns through access to
"risk-free guaranteed high-yield
instruments" or something
equally deceptive.
7. Internet Fraud Stock
promoters are using online
"boiler rooms," instant messag-
ing, and fake websites to lure in-
vestors into "pump-and-dump"
stock schemes.
8. Affinity Fraud Con art-
ists are increasingly targeting
religious, ethnic, cultural, and
professional groups. The Miami
Herald recently reported on a
Miami Beach couple who was
told about an investment by a
neighbor who attended the same
church. Their $25,000 was stolen
along with $180 million that a
bogus company scammed
through churches across
Florida.
9. Variable Annuity Sales
Practices Senior investors
should beware of the high sur-
render fees and steep sales com-
missions agents often earn when
they move investors into vari-
able annuities.
10. Viatical Settlement
Agreements Many Floridi-
ans have been the victims of vi-
atical investment companies
that promise very high returns
with very low risk. Gallagher
has been fighting to have law-
makers pass a bill toregulate vi-
atical investments as securities,
but many in the industry are
trying to block this oversight.

For more information call the
Department of Financial Serv-
ices at 1-800-342-2762 or goto
www.fldfs.com. Information is
also available at the North
American Securities Administra-
tors Association Fraud Center at

During the Wal-Mart event,
children will receive an activity
book that includes kid-friendly
recipes.
Parents will receive the "5 A
Day The Color Way" guide,
which introduces them to the
benefits of choosing a variety of
health-promoting fruits and
vegetables'from each of the five'
color groups, and provides other
helpful information including a
serving size guide.
"Our goal is to educate fami-
lies about the new Dietary
Guidelines for Americans' recom-
mendation to eat more fruits and
vegetables than any other food
group about half your plate,"
said Dr. Elizabeth Pivonka,
president of the Produce for Bet-
ter Health Foundation.

The raging flames were too
strong to keep from the middle
building on the block, occupied by
Bartow Consulting Group, Inc.,

Brian Hinton said that Jerue
Trucking also had some offices in
that building and that a remodel-
ing project is under way on the
first floor. Years ago, the building
was the Ritz Theatre.
Keeping water on the third
building, firefighters fought to
stop the blaze from burning the
, home of URS Corporation. That
red brick building has been a
< drug store and bank in the past.
A narrow alleyway runs between
it and the old theatre building.
Just one street away is Polk
County's Historic Courthouse,
but Robinson said he didn't
believe that was in any danger,
with Central Avenue providing a
fire break.
Robinson believes if more per-
sonnel had been available; the
fire could have been stopped at
the Gateway building. Another
negative factor was the lack of
water. .

'Parade Of Champions' Planned


When Bartow has something
to celebrate, it's not unusual for
a parade to be included in the
festivities.
With the Bartow High School
girls softball team recently win-
ning the Class 4A state champi-
onship, and the school's weight-
lifting team winning its state ti-
tle, its seems only fitting that a
parade be held in their honor.
After all, events such as these
are why Polk County's capital

Correction

In our last issue, we fea-
tured a story about Cody
Wheeler, .a 13-year old boy who
suffered a serious mishap with
a lawnmower, but printed the
wrong phone number to get in
contact with him. We apologize
to .Chief Gary Weiss of the
Mulberry Fire Department,
whose number we accidentally
printed on Thursday.
Friends wishing to get in
contact with Cody can call his
mother Karen Wheeler at 860-
4114.
Mrs. Wheeler said Cody is
doing well after a surgery on
Friday, but will have to have
another one tomorrow and may
have to endure a 13-1/2 hour
thigh muscle transplant de-
pending on the outcome.

For the ninth time in school
history the Florida Southern
College Moccasins have captured
the NCAA Division II baseball
national championship. '
Overcoming" an early 8-3
deficit, the Moccasfis scored six
runs in the final four innings to
beat North Florida 12-9 in
Saturday's title game at
Montgomery, Ala. It was the
Moccasins' 22nd come-from-
behind victory this season.
The championship win capped
a string of five straight wins by
FSC, after losing the opening
game to Central Missouri State 5-
2. The Moccasins finished the
season with a. record of 51-11; the
most wins since the 1995 team
went 51-10 and also won the
national title.
Senior 'catcher Jeff Howell's
five-hit performance in his final
game led a 20-hit attack by the
Moccasins. Eight of the nine
starters all had at least one hit,
scored at least one run and drove
in at least one run. Nick Diyorio,
Geoff Strickland and Fred Popp
each had three hits, while Alexy
Hernandez and Adam Calderone
each had two. Diyorio, Popp,
Calderone and Matt Mercurio
each had two RBI.
John Milton, who pitched to
just one batter-and retired him,
was the winning pitcher, giving
him a 6-0 record. Dan Albritton
pitched seven strong innings out
of a starting role in the 5-3 win
over Central Missouri on
Thursday. He came out of the
bullpen and worked the final
three innings to record his first
save.

The Moccasins did not have to
use closer Kyle DeYoung, who
was named the tournament's
most outstanding player with
three saves and a win in the
Moccasins' five previous tourna-
ment games. Joining DeYoung on
the all-tournament team from
FSC were Howell, Popp, and
Diyorio.

After spotting North Florida
(48-16) three runs in the first on
Marion Knowles' 18th home run
of the season, the Mocs tied .it in
the second on a sacrifice fly by
Hernandez and a two-run triple
by Calderone. North Florida re-
gained the lead right back in the
bottom of the inning with a five-
run outburst.

Mercurio's two-run double and
Paul Ryan's RBl-single cut the
lead to 8-6 in the third. The score
stayed that way until the sixth,
when Popp singled in two runs
and Howell doubled home Popp to
put the Mocs ahead 9-8. The
Ospreys came right back in thI'
bottom of the inning to tie the

Diyorio's two-out single in the
seventh scored Hernandez, who
'had tripled, with the run that put
the Mocs ahead to stay. They

ninth when Hernandez doubled

Diyorio and Strickland tripled in
Calderone.
North Florida's leadoff batter
in the ninth, Sadry Cafe, reached
