It's Official: Polk Charter


Change Vote To Be Held


In 2006 General Election


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

Now it's official: Polk County
voters will decide on Nov. 7, 2006,
whether they want to bring the
county's five constitutional offi-
cers under the county charter,
and to limit them to two consecu-
tive terms in office.
The first change would make
the sheriff, courts clerk, tax col-
lector, property appraiser, and
elections supervisor elected
department heads, answerable to
the county manager.
The term limits would be effec-
tive only if the constitutional offi-
cers were brought under the char-
ter. If the first charter amend-
ment failed, the term limits
would be a moot point, since the
constitutional officers would con-
tinue to be independent officials.
The two proposed charter
changes were brought to referen-
dum by petition. Civic activist
Dewey Smith led the effort to put
the two issues before the voters. A
third petition drive, to cut the
salaries of the officials in half,
came up 61 signatures short.
Smith led a successful effort
several years ago to limit county
commissioners to two consecutive


terms, and to cut their salaries by
half. Both of those proposals
passed with the support of more
than 70 percent of the voters.
The rationale offered for bring-
ing the constitutional officers
under the charter is to give the
commission more authority over
their budgets. Opponents say the
commission already has full bud-
getary authority.
County Atty. Joseph Jarret
told the commission that it had
only two options: to schedule the
charter amendment vote for the
November 2006 general election,
or to call a special election before
then. The estimated cost of a spe-
cial election is $250,000 to
$300,000, he said.
There is a court challenge
pending, but a ruling by Circuit
Judge John Laurent set in motion
a 60-day deadline for the commis-
sion to set the date of the election.
No one appeared to speak at a
public hearing on the two ordi-
iances placing the questions on
the agenda.
"Our motion in no way sup-
ports or does not support the
changes," Commissioner Sam
Johnson said.
"We are a large county; we
need professionals in these
posts," he said, adding that he


hopes the vote "will not be a knee-
jerk reaction."
"From a textbook standpoint it
is not a very manageable
arrangement," Commissioner
Paul Senft said. "That will be
aired extensively."
"It has been done in Volusia
County and other counties,"
Commissioner Randy Wilkinson
said.
Jarret said Sarasota County
voters made the sheriff's post
appointive, then reversed course
and made it elective again.
Wilkinson said he signed peti-
tions for the two issues that will
go on the ballot, but did not sign a
petition for the pay cuts.
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
said that some term limit efforts
have been held to be unconstitu-
tional, and asked if he were
"breaking the Constitution of the
state of Florida" in voting to put
the issues on the ballot.
Jarret said there is "no defini-
tive case law from the Supreme
Court" regarding term limits in
charter counties.
"If you err, you should err in
favor of your county charter," he
said.
The commission's vote to put
both issues on the ballot was
unanimous.

As the budget season nears,
Polk County commissioners are
considering an update to the jail
impact fee.
And residential developers will
be getting a break if the proposed
new rate is approved.
Impact fees are levied on new
construction to assist in paying
for 'county or city facilities that
the new development will use.
Impact fees are often imposed for
roads, schools, sewer and water,
and Polk County has just
approved new impact fees for
parks and for libraries, and raised
the impact fee for emergency
medical services.
And now commissioners are
looking at the jail services.
"In the past, the jail impact fee
has only been imposed. on resi-
dential development, but we are


now looking at commercial and
industrial development," Randy
Young, of Henderson, Young and
Co., who conducted the study, told
the commission.
A change that will bring down
the residential fee, but would levy
jail impact fees for business
development.
"Our total revenue will
increase significantly. I don't
want to mislead people into
thinking the rate is going down,"
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
said.
Initial estimates are that the
county will go from collecting $1
million in jail impact fees to $1.8
million in the next fiscal year.
The impact fee for residential
development is determined by the
annual cost per jail bed ($1,021)
divided by the number of inci-
dents per bed per year (18.06) to
get a total cost per incident
($56.56).


Bartow Teen 'Gigged'

In Wal-Mart Parking Lot


By JENNIFER STARLING
Staff Writer


ni i A verbal scuffle turned into a
. Each stabbing for a Bartow teenager
ites to and an aggravated assault charge
ds the for a Fort Meade teen last week.
;o the Bartow police say Quinton
Roux, 19, of Bartow, was stabbed
multiple times in the back by 17-
year-old Charles McGhee of Fort
Meade, in the parking lot of Wal-,
Mart in Bartow late Tuesday'
night, June 7.
After the stabbing, police said,
McGhee fled the scene along with
another suspect, Franklin D.
Brown, 19, of Lakeland, and was
apprehended by K-9 officers a
short time later after being spot-
ted hiding in heavy undergrowth
by a Polk County Sheriff's air
unit.
Upon his arrest, McGhee told
police that he and two of his
friends, Brown and David T.
McCutchen, 19, of Fort Meade,
went to Wal-Mart to meet a fami-
ly member.
While in the parking lot,
McGhee said, Roux, along with
two other males, Kenneth Hayes,
20, and Prince Fredderick, began
verbally antagonizing him and
Brown, and a fight ensued.


During the, altercation,
McGhee said, he armed himself
with a pocket knife and stabbed
Roux in the back to "get the guy
off of me."
"It's not like I gutted him," he
said, "I just gigged him a few
times." /
McGhee was charged with
aggravated battery, and Brown
was charged with resistirig arrest
without violence.
McCutchen told police he had
not witnessed the fight. He said
that when he exited the store,
McGhee and Brown began run-
ning, and he began running with
them, having "no idea" why they
were running; however, he
returned when police responded
to the scene, and "waited as
directed," police said.
He was not charged in the inci-
dent.
Roux was taken to Lakeland
Regional Medical Center, where
he was treated for five stab
wounds.
He told police he did not know
McGhee, and that he was con-
fronted by McGhee and Brown as
he exited Wal-Mart with Hayes.
He said he believed the fight
stemmed from some prior contro-
versy between Brown and Hayes.


Then, the average number of
incidents at homes (11,462) is
divided by the number of homes
in the county (135,215) to get a
total of incidents per home
(.08477).
The total of incidents per home
(.08477) is multiplied by the cost
per incident ($56.56) to determine
the cost per home per year
($4.79).
The cost per year ($4.79) is
then multiplied by the number of
years the Internal Revenue
Service says the home will be in
use (27.5) to come up with a life
cost ($131).
That total of $131 is a decrease
of $21 from the fee Polk currently
imposes on residential customers.
Of the counties in the state
that impose jail impact fees,


Polk's is the highest, but the new
rate will bring the county under
Marion County, who now is sec-
ond highest at $140.
Commercial development will
pick up the slack.
Using the same formula, the
consultant determined that
offices should pay 19 cents per
square foot, retail establishments
should pay 50 cents per square
foot, and restaurants and bars
should pay $1.48 per square foot.
The wide disparity of the num-
bers comes from differences in the
number of arrests leading to jail
at the different types of business-
es and the number of businesses
in each category to share the bur-

Polk County Hires

Efficiency Consultant


Polk County will pay $625,000
to a Cincinnati-based consulting
firm to serve as executive director
of its newly-created efficiency
commission.
The contract was awarded to
Management Partners, Inc.
Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson said the firm has cre-
ated substantial savings for sev-
eral government clients.
Last year, Polk County voters


approved a charter amendment
requiring appointment of an effi-
ciency commission to examine all
operations of county government.
and to look for economies.
Government officials must
respond to each recommendation.
County Mgr. Mike Herr said
the consultant's first task will be
to review the county budget.
"We are looking forward to this
process," he added.

til 1944, wherinhewas transferred to San Diego for shore patrol. The
award came just in time for Mr. Swain, who also was celebrating
his 81st birthday. (Staff photo).

Ingrid Walker, wife of Senior
Pastor Jon Walker of Corner-
stone Church of God in Fort
Meade, was honored by the la-
dies ministries with a baby
shower on June 13 in the fellow-
ship dining hall of the church.
The birth of the couple's sec-
ond child, Ethan Grant, is sched-
uled for June 24. Their daugh-
ter, Hannah Katherine, is 13
months old.
A close line decorated with
new clothes, shoes, socks, and
other items for little Ethan, was
part of the decorating theme.
Mrs. Walker was presented with
a corsage.
The serving table was laden
with items that said "baby" or
"blue for boy," including closed
sandwiches shaped like ducks,


chicks, teddy bears, etc.
Dips for chips and fruit were
blue, as well as the coconut on
butter cookies, and the punch
bowl was not only filled with
blue punch, but also with several
pacifiers. A large watermelon,
cut into the shape of a basket
and filled with fruit, adorned the
table as a centerpiece.
As Mrs. Walker opened many
gifts for little Ethan, people giv-
ing the gifts were asked to tell
about themselves, their families,
or offer advice about raising chil-
dren. This humorous activity en-
abled the new church pastor's
wife to get to know her church
family, while everyone partici-
pating enjoyed the laughter and
got to know each other better, as
well.


Bartow Hospital Chief Tells
Lions of Changes in Progress


"There is no reason why you
should feel that you must drive
by your local hospital for good
medical treatment," Bartow Re-
gional Medical Center CEO
Justin Davis told Bartow Lions
Club members at their June 14
luncheon meeting.
Davis told his audience that
major changes have been made
at the local hospital, and that
many more improvements are
under way or will be made there
in the near future.
"The time that it takes for a
patient to come to the Bartow
emergency room, receive treat-
ment, and walk out the door
with a prescription has been cut
from five and one-half hours to
one hour and 47 minutes," Davis
said.
Health Management Associ-
ates Corporation, operator of
Bartow Regional, is a 58 hospital
conglomerate, with 17 hospitals
in Florida. Davis came here from


the Haines City hospital, which
is thd fastest growing hospital in
the HMA group, with bed occu-
pancy running more than 100
percent;
Davis explained that the title
"regional" hospital is appropriate
for Bartow, since the medical fa-
cility not only serves Bartow, but
Fort Meade, Mulberry, and
south Lakeland as well.
Growth and improvement
plans there include an enlarged
medical and nursing staff; open-
ing of a cardiac cath lab by Octo-
ber; hyperbaric treatment facili-
ties; and eventual addition of a
third floor to the hospital, which
would increase patient bed ca-
pacity there to more than 100.
Davis said he had no answer
to when the auxiliary road to the
hospital might become a reality,
saying that the delay apparently
lies with other agencies.
The speaker was introduced
by Kenny Quinn.

A proclamation honoring June
as Florida Rivers Month, recog-
nizing the more than 50,000
miles of meandering rivers and
streams throughout the state,
was signed by Governor Jeb
Bush.
Florida's famed waterways in-
clude the historic Suwannee
made famous by folk musician
Stephen Foster, the 310-mile St.
Johns, one of the only rivers in
North America flowing north,
and Northwest Florida's Apala-
chicola, which supplies 90 per-
cent of Florida's oysters.
"Florida's waterways are pre-
cious resources that provide sig-
nificant environmental and eco-
nomic benefits for Florida and
its residents," said Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP) Secretary Colleen M. Cas-
tille.
"Florida is using innovative
partnerships coupled with strong
environmental management to
prevent pollution and improve
the quality of the state's rivers
and streams."
Over the last six years, Flor-
ida has acquired more than 1.1
million acres of environmentally-
sensitive land to protect water


quality in rivers, lakes, estuaries
and streams through Florida
Forever and its predecessor,
P2000.
The acreage includes more
than 270,000 acres of natural
floodplains, nearly 500,000 acres
protecting significant water bod-
ies, more than 520,000 acres of
functional wetlands and nearly
153,000 acres of significant
groundwater recharge areas.
Florida is currently trying to
identify and restore degraded
rivers based on the first state
law of its kind in the nation.
Through water quality stan-
dards, environmental permitting
requirements and a commitment
to reuse, the state has elimi-
nated more than 230 discharges
of industrial and domestic waste-
water into Florida's rivers over
the last decade.
In addition, Florida has in-
vested more than $1.5 billion
over the last six years to protect
the state's rivers by cleaning up
stormwater pollution and im-
proving wastewater treatment.

ida rivers, visit the website at

"People often neglect to pre-
pare for the transportation is-
sues they may face during hurri-
cane season," said FDOT Secre-
tary Jos6 Abreu. "We want every
citizen to be prepared before
they get on the road during an
emergency.
Following 2004's four major
storms in six weeks, FDOT has
replaced thousands of road signs
and traffic signals while recon-

Florida with '$928 million in hur-

burse the state for 2004 storm
damages to the transportation
system.
"Last year's hurricanes were a
perfect example of why Floridi-

changing road conditions," Abreu
said. "We experienced every-
thing from road flooding: to the

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

Father's Day A Time for Reflection


Last week's devastating fire that
destroyed the Tate-Phillips building was a
disaster not only for the three businesses
whose property was destroyed, but for the
heart of the Main Street business district.
Jerue Trucking, Gateway Insurance, and
Bartow Consulting Group all are operating
in temporary headquarters, and we are
confident they will come back as strong as
ever.
Hit almost as hard were downtown
retailers and restaurants in the five blocks
of Main Street between Broadway and
Jackson Avenue.
Main Street is now closed, not only to
parking, but also to vehicular traffic.
But sidewalks temporary, in some
cases are open. Every merchant is acces-
sible.
Navigating the pedestrian pathways can
be a bit of an adventure, but most of us can
use a little more adventure in our lives.
Main Street merchants don't seek your
pity; they seek your patronage. Their val-
ues are good.
The adventure is free.

The fire has focused attention on two
vital areas in fire prevention: water supply
and firefighting manpower.
This is no time for posturing on either
issue. It is a time to look for solutions, not
to find fault.
There are conflicting reports on the ade-
quacy of the water supply and water pres-
sure. The city manager said it is adequate;
the fire chief said it is not.
City Commissioner Brian Hinton, whose
Bartow Consulting Group offices were
destroyed, and members of our own staff
who were on the scene; observed what
appeared to be inadequate water pressure,
especially when additional units arrived
from other fire departments. It appeared
that there was not enough water to supply
all the trucks that responded.
The fire department is checking hydrant
pressure; the city manager has promised
an investigation.
Main Street is torn up because of 'the
downtown redesign. If new water lines are
needed, this is the ideal time to put them
in.
It shouldn't take long to determine the
needs.
If city department heads can't agree on
the need, a consultant should be brought
in.
Decisions must be made quickly, not
only to insure the safety of downtown
property, but to make any needed
improvements while the Main Street
reconstruction is still.in its early stages.

The second issue is manpower.
The fire department has 18 firefighters
manning three shifts. At first blush, that
looks like six firefighters per shift; but
with vacations, sick leave, and other
absences, the actual daily manning typi-
cally is four firefighters.
Four skilled firefighters can handle a


BARTOW Gov. Jeb Bush
signed in a law on Tuesday
giving police the authority to
seize the vehicle of street rac-
ers who commit repeat offens-
es within five years. I believe
the car should be seized after
the first offense. There are safe
places where people can take
their cars that have been
designed for speed and race.


small fire, at least until reinforcements
arrive. They cannot be expected to extin-
guish a fire in a large two-story building
built largely of heart pine.
Fortunately, from a manpower stand-
point, the Tate-Phillips fire occurred at
shift change time, so there were two shifts
of firefighters on hand.
For many years, Bartow's primary fire-
fighting force lay in a large, skilled and
dedicated volunteer organization. That
force has become smaller as the paid orga-
nization (21 people, including the chief
and two deputy chiefs) has grown.
The Tate-Phillips fire showed the need
for additional trained firefighters who can
respond before mutual aid units arrive
from other cities and the county fire
department.
Rebuilding the size of the volunteer
force is, one option; cross-training of other
city employees is another.
This idea probably won't make us many
new friends in either the fire department
or the police department, but we urge the
city to explore cross-training as firefighters
those police officers who are interested.
Like firefighters, police officers are on duty
around the clock, and like firefighters, they
have the courage to perform dangerous
work in service to their community.
Traditionally, there has been resistance
to such cross-training, not just in Bartow,
but throughout the public safety commu-
nity. We have never understood that.
Emergency medical service welcomes
first response by firefighters who are cross-
trained as emergency medical technicians
and paramedics. And it is a duty that fire-
fighters proudly perform.
We don't see why a comparable symbi-
otic relationship could not exist between
firefighters and cross-trained police offi-
cers.
A city the size of Bartow cannot afford a
fire department large enough to handle a
fire of the size that occurs once every 50 or
100 years.
But the department must have the assets
- water pressure and trained manpower
- to respond to those rare but catastroph-
ic fires.

To reiterate, this is no time to look for
blame; it is a time to look for solutions, and
to implement them.
Quickly.

Editorial





Pane


I have written on this topic
many times over the years. The
words change; the sentiments
don't. This column is a slightly
edited and updated version of my
2004 Father's Day column.

Different occasions invoke
various emotions.
Birthdays remind us how old
we are.
Independence Day reminds
us how patriotic we are.
Father's Day reminds us how
fortunate we are.
When I was a young man -
at 64, I am a long way from
elderly, but arguably even a
longer way from young I had
a young man's ambitions.
I wanted success, as mea-
sured by the world; stuff that
would look good in my obitu-
ary.
A successful career in jour-
nalism; a second career in the
Florida National Guard; the
presidency of the Rotary Club,
the Florida Press Assn., and a
few other organizations; an


occasional term on the vestry of
my church.
Positions of responsibility.
Positions of influence.
It's the male ego. Or at least
that's my excuse.
It was not until I became a
father that I realized that the
greatest opportunity to shape
the future, the most important
position of responsibility and
influence, is in the home, not
outside of it.
And of all the positions of
influence, it is the easiest to
achieve. No schools to attend.
No memberships to achieve. No
qualifications to be established.
No votes to win; okay, maybe
one.
I realized that some men
spend a lifetime pursuing posi-
tions of greater influence and
responsibility that male ego
again without realizing that
there is no higher rank in the
organizational hierarchy than
that of father.
It was both an inspiring and
an humbling realization, and it


has become no less so with the
passage of years.
The other stuff is interesting.
Some of it provides a living,
paying for food and shelter,
transportation and medical
care, education and an occa-
sional luxury. Some of it feeds
that male ego.
It is easy to remember the
high points, and the low points,
of parenthood.
It is easy to remember the
mistakes made, the moments
that I would give anything to
take back. The voice raised
without justification; the impa-
tience when it was uncalled for.
They happened too often.
It also is easy to remember
graduation days and nights,
Christmas mornings, Easter egg
hunts, and the two words that
melt a father's heart, "Daddy's
home!" In 30 years of National
Guard duty, you hear that one a
lot.
Fathers feel a lot of pride for
achievements of their children,
achievements for which they

are due little if any credit. Every
success is met with the declara-
tion spoken or unspoken -
"That's my kid."
There is the unexcelled pride
of being asked by your son to be
best man at his wedding, and
receiving as a gift a pocket knife
engraved: "Dad, My Best Man."
And there is no match for the
overwhelming sense of pride
for an event for which a father
has less responsibility than any
other: becoming a grandfather.
The bond between grandson
and grandfather defies descrip-
tion.
Father's Day is a day for
being catered to, for cards that
are too complimentary, gifts
that are too generous, recogni-
tion that is overstated.
More appropriately, Father's
Day falling always on a
Sunday is a day to reflect on
how fortunate we are.
And to thank God Almighty
for blessings beyond imagina-
tion.

Public Relations Society of
'America (PRSA).
The Silver Anvil, which recog-
nizes outstanding achievement
in strategic public relations plan-
ning and implementation, was
presented during the Silver An-
vil Celebration Event held June
9 in New York City.
Badcock received the 2005 Sil-
ver Anvil Award in the category


of special events observances
more than seven days.
Along with Hill and Knowl-
ton, their outside public rela-
tions firm, Badcock was tasked
with promoting their 2004 cen-
tennial to consumers and educat-
ing potential dealers about the

Mosaic Employee Receives Help


As many as 30 Mosaic em-
ployees found additional work to
do after they completed a day's
work, Monday, June 13.
Community work, they call it.
And it was completed not for a
check, but to help a fellow em-
ployee.
Jane Thompson, administra-
tive assistant to Mine Manager
Howie Stoughton at Mosaic,
South Fort Meade, showed up to


work with a broken ankle.
After reroofing the back part
of her home, as she was trying to
finish the front section, working
in the rain, she slipped, fell and
broke her ankle.
Maintenance Supervisors Joe
Matz and Shawn Morrison, Mine
Superintendents Carrol Moye
and Denny Tucker, Maintenance
Engineer Carl Madsen, along
with many other employees,


showed up, and worked as many
hours as they could reroofing
109 South Pine.
"They are digging with crow
bars, several layers of old roof, I
don't know how many, in order
to put the new roof on. I'd be
right up there with them if I
could," Ms. Thompson said.
Ms. Thompson has an 11-
year-old son, Lawrence Thomp-
son, who lives at the residence
with her.

American Red Cross preparedness guide for hurricane season


What To Do Now
>- Read this guide carefully.
r Decide where you plan to go if you are requested to
evacuate. You may go to a hotel or motel, stay with
friends or relatives in a safe location or go to a Red Cross
shelter.
> Put together your disaster supplies kit as recommended in
this guide.
> Plan for pets. Pets are not allowed in public shelters. If
you need to make arrangements for your pet, contact your
vet, local SPCA or Humane Society.

When the Storm Approaches
Listen for weather
updates. Hurricanes are -
unpredictable, so remain
informed.
> Have your car ready.
Check gas, oil, water and

>Check your emergency
evacuation supplies.
> Board up or put storm
shutters on windows.
When windows break,
homes are destroyed.
SClear your yard of loose
objects, bicycles, lawn
furnituretrash cans, etc.
O- Secure your boat. Remember that most drawbridges and
swing bridges will be closed to all boat traffic after the
evacuation order is issued.
Leave swimming pools filled. Supei-chlorinate the water
and cover pump and filtration systems and intakes.

If You Can Stay Home
> Obtain and mark clean containers for storing water. You
should have a minimum of one gallon per person per day
for seven days.
> Obtain a week's supply of non-perishable foods. Don't
forget a non-electric can opener.
Check your disaster supplies kit.
SBe a good friend. Offer your home as shelter to friends or
relatives who live in vulnerable areas or mobile homes.
> Stay inside, away from windows.
Wait for official word that the danger is over. Don't be
fooled by the storm's calm eye.

If a Warning Has Been Issued
In the event of a hurricane .
warning for this area, your
local TV will provide
frequent updates about the '
storm as well as advice
from local officials. Keep I
listening to local radio and iV
.television for information, as
the intensity and the path of
the hurricane can change
quickly, and without notice.

If You Must Evacuate
- Pack what you will need.
I, Turn off water and electricity at the main valve, breakers or
fuses.


0 Turn off propane gas tanks that serve individual appliances
like a stove or grill. Do notturn off natural gas unless
local officials advise to do so.

After a Storm
> Have valid identification. You will not be allowed back into
your area unless you can show proof of residency.
> Stay at home and avoid sightseeing, which can impede
emergency and recovery response from officials.
> Beware of snakes, insects and animals driven to higher
ground.
> Avoid downed or dangling utility wires.
> Enter your home with caution.
> Be cautious with fires. Do not strike matches until you are
certain there are no gas leaks.
> If a power outage occurs, turn off or disconnect all motor-
driven appliances and.fixtures to avoid damage from
sudden surges when power is restored.


American Red Cross preparedness guide, continued


Helping Children Cope With Disasters
- During a disaster, your
family may have to leave
your home and daily
routine.
SAs an adult, you'll need to
cope with the disaster in
a way that will help 1. B
children avoid developing,
a permanent sense of ,
loss.
> How you react to an emergency gives them clues on how
to act. If you.seem overcome with a sense of loss, a child
may feel losses more strongly.
Children's fears may also stem from their imagination, and
you should take these feelings seriously. A child who feels
afraid is afraid.
SWhen talking with your child, be sure to present a realistic
picture that is both honest and manageable.

Lessons Learned From Past
Hurricanes
> Remember that some
areas of your state may 1
have been asked to .
evacuate before yours, so
even if you leave early,
roads may be congested.
> If possible, you should
know where you are
going and how you plan .
to get there before you
leave home.
> Using alternate routes may lessen your travel time. Know
what alternate routes are viable before you leave.
' Leaving early will shorten your travel time. Leaving later
may not allow you enough time to reach safe shelter.
> You will need a full tank of gas, and cash.


TOGETHERWE PREPARE


Make a plan
Design a family (home)
disaster plan. Work with
neighbors and co-workers
to crntle community and
workplace disaster plans.


How to Prepare for a Tornado

What to listen for
Tornado watch: Tornadoes are possible in your area.
Remain alert for approaching storms.
Tornado warning: A tornado has been sighted or indicated
by weather radar. If a tornado warning is issued for your
area and the sky becomes threatening, move to your pre-
designated place of safety.
Severe thunderstorm watch: Severe thunderstorms are
possible in your area.
Severe thunderstorm warning: Severe thunderstorms are
occurring.
What you can do before the storm
> Develop a plan for you and your family for home, work,
school and when outdoors.
Have frequent drills.
> Know your county and keep a highway map nearby to
follow storm movement from weather bulletins.
0 Have a NOAA weather radio with a warning alarm tone
and battery backup to receive warnings.
> Listen to radio and television for information
> If planning a trip outdoors, listen to the latest forecasts
and take necessary action I liie.ei-giirj weather is
possible.
I a warning is issued or if threatening weather
approaches
SIn a home or building, move to a designated shelter.
> If an underground shelter is not available, move to an
interior room or hallway on the lowest floor and get under
a sturdy piece of furniture.
0 Stay away from windows.
- Get out of automobiles.
o Do not try to outrun a tornado in your car.
> If caught outside or in a vehicle, lie flat in a ditch or
depression.


1 Avoid using candles, as they may result in fire. Use a
flashlight.
Fill clean containers with water for drinking and cooking.
Store water in a bathtub for washing and to flush toilets.
Turn the refrigerator and freezer controls to the coldest
settings.
N To keep spoiling and thawing of food to a minimum, open
the refrigerator or freezer as seldom as possible during a
blackout. Food will stay frozen for up to'48 hours if a
freezer is full and tightly packed and the door is kept
closed. Food in a partly filled freezer may keep for 24
hours.
> Fill empty freezer spaces with reusable ice containers, or
fill empty milk containers about four-fifths full of water, cap
the containers loosely and place in empty space.
> If food in freezer does defrost, use it within one or two
days. Never refreeze food that has thawed completely.
How do you tell if food has gone bad? The rule of thumb
is, "If in doubt, throw it out!"


TOGETHERWE PREPARE"

> Mobile homes, even if tied down, offer little protection
from tornadoes and should be abandoned.


Tips on Flooding
Before the flood
> Know the elevation of your property in relation to nearby
streams and other waterways.
> Make plans of what you will do and where you will go in a
flash-flood emergency.
When a flash-flood watch is issued for your area
> Listen to area radio and television stations and NOAA
weather radio for possible flash-flood warnings and
reports of flooding in progress from the National Weather
Service and public safety agencies.
1 Be prepared to evacuate at a moment's notice.
SIf you are on a road, watch for flooding at highway dips,
bridges and low area.
> Watch for signs (thunder, lightning) df distant heavy
rainfall.
When a flash-flood warning is issued for your area
, Act quickly to save yourself and those who depend on you.
You may have only seconds.
> Do not attempt to cross a flooding stream on foot where
water is above your knees.
> If you are driving, don't try to drive through water of
unknown depth. If your vehicle stalls, abandon it
immediately and seek higher ground. Rapid rising water
may sweep the vehicle away. Many deaths have been
caused by attempts to move stalled vehicles.
> Keep children away from floodwaters near culverts and
storm drains.
SBe especially cautious at night when it is harder to
recognize flood danger.
> When you are out of immediate danger, tune in to area
radio and television stations and NOAA weather radio for
additional information.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRON-
MENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE
PERMIT
7The Department of Environ-
mental Protection gives notice
of its intent to issue a modifi-
'cation to an Environmental Re-
,source Permit (File Number 53-
301981-3) to Rinker Materials
of Florida, Inc., 100 Lem Carnes
Road, Davenport, Florida
33837 for an existing said
mine. For administrative pur-
poses, the Department is re-
numbering the Environmental
Resource Permit File Number to
0237608-001. The modifica-
tion is for (1) an expansion of
the surface water management
system for the mine from
1,684 acres to 1,744 acres,
(2) a change in the expiration
date of the construction phase,
and (3) a change in the name
of the permitted listed on the
permit. The 60-acre expansion
area consists of a .citrus grove
and a road. It is'surrounded on
three sides by the existing, per-
mitted mine. No wetlands are
located in the expansion area.
This modification changes the
expiration date of the con-
struction phase from life-of-
mine to 20 years from the
date this modification is issued.
This ERP modification reflects
the current name of the per-
mittee.
An approximate total of
1,523.66 acres are planned to
be mined at the Lake Wales
Sand Mine. This permit modi-
fies, ERP No. 53-301981-3 as
noted above. The authorization
for the dredging or filling of
36.85 acres of wetlands or
other surface waters approved
in ERP No. 53-301981-3 re-
mains in effect and unchanged.
As previously required, no
dredging or filling of wetlands ,s
authorized prior to the excava-
tion and initial planting of an
equal or greater area of wet-
land creation. Mitigation con-
sists of the creation of 37.86
acres of herbaceous wetlands.
Up to a maximum of on-site
wetlands may, be impacted.
Mitigation monitoring reports
remain a requirement. No addi-
tional impervious area will be
constructed. The system is ca-
pable or retaining the runoff
from a 100-year, 24-hour
storm event.
The sand will be extracted
via an electric-powered hydrau-
lic dredge to a depth of ap-
proximately 80 feet below land
surface, which is 60 feet below
the water table. The dredge
operates in a closed-loop sys-
tem. No dewatering is author-
ized. The 1,684 acres in the
existing permit consists of
881..20 acres of citrus groves,
272.33 acres of sand mining
and processing area, 261.71
acres of pasture, 205.85 acres
of created lakes, 62 acres of
herbaceous marsh, and 1.45
acres of an inland slough. The
post-mining land use of the
1,684 acres is 795 acres of
lakes (including littoral zone),
786 acres of pasture, and 103


acres of herbaceous march.
The 60-acre expansion area
consists of 59.3 acres of citrus
grove of, 0.7 acres.of roads.
ThepriposeBd post-mining land
use of the 60-acre expansion
are is 56.6 acres of lakes (in-
cluding littoral zone) and 3.4
acres of unimproved pasture.
The combined littoral shelf
acreage will range from 9 acres
to 49 acres depending on the
final size and configuration of
the pits, The littoral zone wet-
lands are not a part of the wet-
land mitigation. The sand will
continue to be processed at
the existing plant site. The to-
tal area serviced by the system
is 1,744 acres. No offsite dis-
charges are authorized under
this permit.
The project is located on the
north and south sides of State
Road 60, in the vicinity of
State Road 60 and Story Road,
approximately 3 miles east of
Lake Wales, in Sections 33 and
34, Township 29 South, Range
28 East, and in Sections 2, 3, 9
and 10, Township 30 South,
Range 28 East, Polk County.
Under this intent to issue,
the permit is hereby granted
subject to the applicant's com-
pliance with any requirement in
this intent to publish notice of
this intent in a newspaper of
general circulation and to pro-
vide proof of such publication
in accordance with section
50.051 of the Florida Statutes.
This action is final and effective
.in the.date filed with the Clerk
of the Department unless a
sufficient petition for an admin-
istrative hearing is timely filed
under sections 120.569 and
120.57 of the Florida Statutes
as provided below. If a suffi-
cient petition for an administra-
'tive hearing is timely filed, this
intent to issue automatically
becomes only proposed agency
action on the application, sub-
ject to the result of the admin-
istrative review process. There-
fore, on the filing of a timely
and sufficient petition, this ac-
tion will not be final and effec-
tive until further order of the
Department. When proof of
publication is provided, if re-
quired by this intent, and if a
sufficient petition is not timely
filed, the permit will be issued
as a ministerial action. Because
an administrative hearing may
result in the reversal or sub-
stantial modification of this ac-
tion, the applicant is advised
not to commence construction
or other activities until the
deadlines noted below, for filing
a petition for an administrative
hearing or request for an ex-
tension of time, have e-pired
and until the permit has been
executed and delivered. Media-
tion is not available.
A person whose substantial
interests are affected by the
proposed permitting decision
may petition for an administra-
tive proceeding (Hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
F.S. The petition must contain
the information set forth below
and must be filed (received by


the clerk) in the Office of Gen-
eral Counsel of the Department
at 3900 Commonwealth, Bpule-
.'arjd, f13i Sration 35, Taliahas-
.--e Florda 3 '23 9-3'.0'0U. ..,.
Under rule 62-1,10.106(4)
of the Florida Administrative
Code, a person whose substan-
tial interests are effected by
the Department's action ma y
also request an extension of
time to file a petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing. The De-
partment may, for good cause
shown, grant the request for an
extension of time. Requests for
extension of time must be filed
with the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at
3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-3000, be-
fore the applicable deadline. A
timely request for extension of
time shall till the running of the
time period for filing a petition
until the request is acted upon.
If a request is filed late, the De-
partment may still grant it
upon a motion by the request-
ing party showing that the fail-
ure to file a request for an ex-
tension of time before the
deadline was the result of ex-
cusable neglect.
If a timely and sufficient pe-
tition for an administrative
hearing is filed, other persons
whose substantial interest will
be affected by the outcome of
the administrative process have
the right to petition to inter-
vene in the proceeding. Inter-
vention will be permitted only
at the discretion of the presid-
ing officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with rule
28-106.205 of the Florida Ad-
ministrative Code.
In accordance with rule 62-
110.106 of the Florida Admin-
istrative Code, petitions for an
administrative hearing by the
applicant must be filed within
21 days of receipt pf this writ-
ten notice. Petitions filed by
any persons other than the ap-
plicant, and other than those
entitled to written notice under
subsection 120.60(3), of the
Florida Statutes, must be filed
within 21 days of publication of
the notice or within 21 days of
receipt of the written notice,
whichever occurs first. Under
subsection 120.60(3), of the
Florida Statutes, however, any
person who has asked the De-
partment for notice of agency
action may file a petition within
21 days of receipt of such no-
tice, regardless of the date of
publication.
The petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the ap-
plicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a
petition within the appropriate
time period shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to
request an administrative de-
termination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statutes..
A petition that disputes the
material facts on which the De-

Fasel is Warner Southern College's

Professor of the Year for 2005


Linda Fasel, associate profes-
sor of teacher education at War-
ner Southern College, has been
selected by her colleagues and
the students and administration
as the college's Professor of the
Year for 2005.
Professors of the Year qualify
for national honors through the
U. S. Professors of the Year Pro-
gram sponsored by the Carnegie
Foundation for the Advancement
of Teaching and the Council for
the Advancement and Support of
Education.
Mrs. Fasel began as an ad-
junct (part-time) instructor in
the Department of Fine Arts at
Warner Southern in 1984. That
same year she taught art meth-
ods for elementary teachers in
the teacher education program.
She became a full-time professor
in 1999.
When asked why she loves to
teach, Mrs. Fasel responded, "I
really believe strongly in the lib-
eral arts Christian college for-
mat, which connects the mind,
body and spirit. There is also the

den.
Schools and colleges, public
and private, will be expected to
pay $1.01 per square foot, a num-
ber that surprised some commis-
sioners.
"I'm not saying this is stu-
dents," Young told the commis-
sion. "I am sure that most often it
is not."
When questioned further by
Commissioner Randy Wilkinson,
Young said the number reflected
anyone arrested, leading to jail,
on school grounds, including
sporting events and other activi-
ties.
A public hearing on the pro-
posed new fee will be held on
July 13.

"The liberal arts format
prepares us for that. It is also re-

students say that the Christian
campus is a haven for people

force."
Mrs. Fasel enjoys a lifelong
passion for the visual arts, which
stems from being a kinesthetic

"You don't have to be a non-

visual learner," she said. "We are
surrounded by compelling visual
images, which I see as a gift. We
can respond to the world in a
meaningful way. It is an act of
praise."

Electric Company Offers

Efficiency Tips for Summer


Even before the first official
day of summer, Florida's heat
and humidity is pushing electric-
ity usage to higher levels.
Because it's always a good
idea to use energy efficiently,
Progress Energy offers these tips
to save electricity and money
this season:
Set your thermostat on the
highest comfortable setting.
You'll save 7 to 10 percent on
your cooling costs for each de-
gree above 78.
Change air conditioner fil-
ters monthly. Dirty filters can
increase operating costs by 20
percent.
Use ceiling and portable
fans to keep air moving. Fans
only use about as much energy
as a light bulb.


Close blinds, drapes, and
shades during the hottest part of
the day. This keeps the sun's
rays from heating your house.
Because humid air holds
more heat, take lukewarm show-
ers and baths, and run the bath-
room exhaust fan to reduce hu-
midity in your home.
When possible, use your mi-
crowave or countertop appli-
ances for cooking instead of the
oven or stove.
Longer term, plant shade
trees on the sunny side of the
house to provide natural shad-
ing.

to save energy and money this
summer, visit progress-

W WFre Annul CreditReport Donation Supports Disaster
Free Annual Credit Report Prevention Education


A new law went into effect on
June 1 that lets consumers get
free annual credit reports and
Florida's Chief Financial Officer
Tom Gallagher is urging Floridi-
ans to take advantage.
"Floridians should carefully
check their credit reports for er-
rors and incomplete informa-
tion," Gallagher said. "Identity
theft can be stopped early by a
thorough examination of the de-
tails in a credit report. Good
credit is an asset worth protect-
ing."
Under the federal Fair and
Accurate Credit Transactions
Act, Floridians are now able to
take advantage of free annual
credit reports that can be re-
quested from each of the three
major credit reporting services.
Credit reports contain numer-
ous types of information de-
tails about debt such as mort-
gages, consumer loans, credit
cards and bankruptcies. Re-
questing a report will give the
consumer the opportunity to find
any inaccuracies and correct
them.
Mortgage lenders and credit
card issuers rely on credit re-
ports to make credit decisions
and to assign interest rates. Now
insurance companies and poten-
tial employers are using the re-
ports to decide whether to issue
insurance or make job offers.
Gallagher suggests Floridians
make it a habit to check their
credit reports on a frequent basis
and address any discrepancies or
errors that may exist. Reviewing
and managing your credit is im-
portant for two reasons.
First, if someone has stolen
your identity you will know be-
cause you will see inquiries and
new debt on the report that you
didn't initiate.
Second, because many credi-
tors use credit reports to rate
your creditworthiness and estab-
lish an interest rate, if yours is


correct you may save money on
loans and other types of credit.
Gallagher also offers these
tips when trying to correct infor-
mation in your credit report:
It is common to receive
mail, telemarketing pitches and
e-mail from credit repair busi-
nesses offering to help upgrade
credit ratings, remove bad credit
or even acquire a new Social Se-
curity number. These promises
are aimed at getting more money
from those of us who can least
afford it people already in fi-
nancial trouble.
Be cautious of companies
that want you to pay for credit
repair services in advance or
that recommend against contact-
ing a credit bureau directly.
Be wary of a company that
suggests you try to invent a
"new" credit report by applying
for an employer identification
number to use instead of your
Social Security number.
Understand that there are
possible crimes related to credit
repair. For example, you can be
charged and prosecuted for mail
or wire fraud if you use the mail
or telephone to apply for credit
and provide false information. It
is a federal crime to make false
statements on a loan or credit
application, to misrepresent your
Social Security number or to ob-
tain an employer identification
number from the Internal Reve-
nue Service under false pre-
tenses.
No one can legally remove
accurate and timely negative in-
formation from a credit report.
Floridians can get free reports
online at www.annualcreditre-
port.com or can download the
forms to mail in.
Call toll-free 1-877-322-8228
to obtain free reports by mail.
You may also purchase your
credit score for a fee of $6.95
when you request your free an-
nual credit report.

A corporate donation is pro-
viding $125,000 to support stu-
dent advocacy and information
campaigns to raise awareness
about the importance of building
codes and disaster preparation.
Florida schools, from kinder-
garten through higher educa-
tion, can receive State Farm
Companies Foundation funds to
have students learn about these
issues and educate the broader
public about them.
According to Joe Formusa,
State Farm senior vice-president
in Florida, the program's student
focus is intentional.
"The best way for young peo-
ple to learn about protecting
their homes and communities is
through real-world experience
and practice."
The four hurricanes that
struck Florida in 2004 impacted
all 67 of the state's counties.
This project is intended to gener-
ate participation across the
state. In addition to learning
more about building codes and
disaster preparation, students
will implement "service-learn-
ing" activities to educate and in-
fluence their peers, parents, and


communities. Activities will pro-
mote student citizenship and
civic engagement.
Student projects will take
many forms -such as brochures,
videos, tip sheets, models of dis-
'aster-resistant homes, or disas-
ter preparation kits that teach
about building codes and disas-
ter preparation, mitigation, re-
sponse, and recovery,
Students also can help seniors
prepare their homes for disas-
ters, make recommendations to
retrofit homes for greater safety,
and create presentations, public
service announcements, media
campaigns, and lessons to teach
peers, parents, and the commu-
nity about the importance of
building codes and being ready
for disasters.
The Florida Education Foun-
dation will receive the funds,
which will be awarded competi-
tively through Florida State Uni-
versity's Florida Alliance for Stu-
dent Service (FASS). Joe Foil-
man, FASS program coordinator,
anticipates that the 2,500+ stu-
dent participants will impact
thousands more Floridians
across the state.

Bartow Father Glad To Have 'Been

There' For Son, Dodgers' Draft Pick


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer
As a young boy in Bartow,
Phil "Steve" Mooneyham was de-
nied an integral part of his child-
hood his father never had
time to watch him play ball. It
was because of his loss that he
made it a point of pride to al-
ways be there for his sons.
That intimate pact, spanning
24 years now, manifested itself
last week when Mooneyham's
son, Jason, was selected by the
Los Angeles Dodgers in the 40th
round (1,214th, overall) of the
2005 Major League Baseball
First-Year Player Draft.
Never There
Growing up in the 1960s,
men's fast pitch softball was all
the rage. Still to this day,
Mooneyham vividly recalls
watching his father, Rudolph,
better known in Bartow as
Rusty," dazzle on the diamond
with passion and drive. Rudolph
managed and played for the Bar-
tow Merchants, a team from
Bartow who solicited advertise-
ments from local businesses to
wear on their uniforms.
The team even had the oppor-
tunity to play against the legen-
dary Eddie Fleinger, the softball
equivalent of the Harlem Globe-
trotters, called "The King and
his Court."
Always wrapped up in his
athletics, his father passed away
at an early age without taking a
break to play catch with little
Stevie or even attend one of his
many little league game.
"He always spent more time
with that team than he ever did
with me," Mooneyham said.
In response, Mooneyham
made sure he was always there
for his boys when it came to
baseball or otherwise. All the
Sway up to his son's final amateur
game, the Division III college
world series last month, Mooney-
ham did whatever it took just to
be in the stands to see his son
play. t
"I played catch with my sons
until my arm fell off. I can't even
throw the ball anymore,"
Mooneyham said.


An Unceremonious Rise
A lifetime of encouragement
and praise has come to a head
with an unceremonious $1,000
signing bonus, a modest sum for
a player with an equally uncere-
monious rise to the major
leagues.
After graduating as a cele-
brated three-sport athlete from
Trabuco High School in the base-
ball rich area of southern Cali-
fornia, Jason was A little unsure
of where to go next. Despite
some success at Irvine Valley
College, earning team defensive
MVP as a freshman, he trans-
ferred to Mt. San Antonio Col-
lege, another junior college in
California.
After a season there, Mooney-
ham and Jason had their hearts
and sights set on Long Beach
State University, a four-year Di-
vision-II school. Jason worked
out with the team but was the
very last player cut from the ros-
ter.
Not one for sour grapes,
Mooneyham plans to send a
"thank you" note to the baseball
coach at LBSU for cutting his
son, along with a notice about
his draft pick.
The memory is full of levity
now, but at the time, Mooney-
ham and his son were, devas-
tated. Jason had to sit out for
the season, unsure if he would
ever play competitive baseball
again.
"Something happened to him
that year," Mooneyham said. "He
approached me and said, 'Dad,
okay, I'm gonna play ball.' And
that was that."
The next year, Jason made
the team at Chapman College, a

Division III school about an hour
away from Rancho Santa Marga-
rita.
Once at Chapman, Jason be-
gan to flourish, leading the team
in home runs and RBIs in each
of his two seasons.
This season was especially ex-
citing for the Mooneyhams as
Chapman advanced to the Col-
lege World Series. Chapman
wowed the major league scouts
in attendance there with a world
series batting average of .636.
Despite the individual effort,
Chapman fell in the semi finals.
Despite the loss, the entire
ride has been great for all the
Mooneyhams.
"This has all been so exciting.
Starting off in little league, you
can only dream of this situation,"
Jason's mother, Kathy, said.
"Just to hear his name being
called on draft day, it's it's
something you can't even de-
scribe."
"He's gonna have fun,"
Mooneyham said, adding that


his son had already been forced
to shave off his goatee before get-
ting on a plane to Ogden, Utah,
to play for the Dodgers' rookie
team.

Just a Fantasy?
Steve grew up in Bartow with
his mother, Ruby Atkins
(Mooneyham), and was able to
play little league baseball.
Although he never got the sat-
isfaction standing at the plate,
looking behind him to see his fa-
ther, waving at him and shout-
ing words of encouragement. The
scenario played out many times
before in his mind.
That was many years ago, in
a different time. Now, Mooney-
ham has a new fantasy, only this
time it won't be a little league
game at a tiny field in Bartow -
this time he will be in the stands
shouting praises.
This time the stage will be the
biggest in the world.
This time it will take place in
Dodgers' Stadium.


AS THE 1,214TH OVERALL PICK of the 2005 Major League
Baseball First-Year Player Draft, 23-year-old Jason Mooneyham,
son of Bartow native Phil "Steve" Mooneyham, didn't take the most
direct route to the majors, but made it all the same. The Los Ange-
les Dodgers' 40th round pick was given a $1,000 signing bonus and
is off to Ogden, Utah, to play for the Dodgers' rookie league team. -

2004 Second Overall Draft Pick

Leads L-Tigers All Star Selections This Week
-~~~~~To 10 _.^^- ^-j


Nine Lakeland Tigers were
selected to take part in the 44th
Annual Florida State League
All-Star Game on Saturday,
June 18, at Bright House Net-
works Field in Clearwater.
Five position players along
with four pitchers were plucked,
from the West Division leading
Tigers.
Leading the way for the pitch-
ers is Justin Verlander, who has
come to Lakeland and dominated
Florida State League batters by
going 7-2 in 10 starts. Verlander
leads the league in Strikeouts
(76) and ERA (1.66) and has
been very impressive in his first
season of professional baseball
after being drafted second over-
all last summer.
Joining Verlander in Clearwa-
ter this summer will be starters
Jordan Tata and Nathan Bum-
stead as well as closer Chris
Homer.
Tata has picked up where he
left off last season for West


Michigan, posting a 4-1 record
while sporting a 2.13 ERA for
the Tigers. He has struck out 53
batters and walked only 13 in
62.2 innings of action.
Bumstead has been equally
impressive, going 6-1 with a 2.73
ERA thus far.
Rounding out the pitching
staff is FSL saves leader Chris
Homer. Homer has struck out
24 batters in 26.1 innings
pitched.
While the Lakeland pitching
staff leads the league in runs al-
lowed, the Lakeland offense
maintains the lead in runs
scored. The Lakeland lineup has
been mashing the ball all season
long and now they have been re-
warded with five position play-
ers getting named to the team.
SS Scott Tousa, CF Vince Blue,
C Danilo Sanchez, 2B Juan
Francia, and RF Brent Clevlen
will be representing the Tigers
in Clearwater.
Tousa, has been slick in the


field and an on-base source all
year for the Tigers. He is fourth
in the league in batting average
and third in on-base percentage.
He's now batting .337 on the sea-
son.
Center fielder Vince Blue is
hitting .309 this year with 15
stolen bases and has made sev-
eral spectacular plays in the out-
field.
Second baseman Juan Fran-
cia has been excellent all year at
the top of the Tigers order. He's
hitting .332 on the year and has
stolen 20 bases, good for second
in the league.
Right fielder Brent Clevlen
has made a remarkable turn-
around this year. After strug-
gling for most of last season at
the plate and in the field, Clev-
len has been one of the best hit-
ters in the league this season
and has played a steady right-
field for the Tigers. Clevlen is
hitting .302 and.leads the Tigers
with 10 home runs.,Clevlen's 48
RBIs lead the Florida State
League.
The final Tiger all-star is
catcher Danilo Sanchez. He has
displayed patience and power
this sea.iun, hitting .245 while
catching nearly every day for the
Tigers.

Pitching in and winning four
consecutive state title games ap-
parently isn't good enough to be
considered "Ms. Softball," at
least according to the Florida
Dairy Farmers Association
(FDFA).
With the release of the
FDFA's Mr. Baseball and Ms.
Softball for the state, Bartow fell
short in both the player and
coach of the year categories, de-
spite the superfecta of state ti-
tles.
Senior pitcher Lindsay Little-
john was edged out by Palm Har-
bor University's Dani Hofer in
the player of the year category,
despite the four state titles and a
lower ERA.
Bartow Coach Glenn Ruten-
bar, who has won the coach of
the year accolade before and is
an annual fixture on the ballot,
tied for second by three votes be-
hind Palm ,Harbor University
Coach Chuck Poetter, who won a
repeat state title with a perfect
31-0 season.
"I was disappointed with the
outcome because Lindsay's ac-
complishments 'should have
weighed in for all four years,"
said Bartow High School Ath-
letic Director Marnee Cobb.
Littlejohn went 21-1 on the
season with a 0.05 ERA and 229
strikeouts and had two shutout
victories at state to become the
first pitcher to win four state fi-
nals in four years. She finished
her high school career with 83
wins and an 0.11 ERA.
Meanwhile, Hofer was a per-
fect 25-0 with a 0.07 ERA and


403 strikeouts as her team re-
peated as state champs. Hofer
closed her career as a .483 hitter
with 1,163 strikeouts, 58 shut-
outs and 13 perfect games.
While the individual acco-
lades would have been nice, Mrs.
Cobb said the important fact is
that Bartow High School gets to
defend a state championship for
the fourth year in a row.
"Neither Lindsey or Coach
Rutenbar would ever want indi-
vidual accomplishments to over-
shadow what the team did," Mrs.
Cobb said.
As a coach, Rutenbar led the
team to its fourth consecutive
state title with a 30-2 season.
He has compiled a record of 514-
90-1 through 19 seasons, includ-
ing 14 district titles, 13 final
fours, four state runner-up fin-
ishes and six state titles.
"We know that they are the
best," Mrs. Cobb said. "We just
wish the rest of the state real-
ized it too."
In baseball, Fort Meade's An-
drew McCutchen was named Mr.
Baseball, and will be able to put
that trophy next to his Gatorade
Florida Player of the Year tro-
phy, which he won earlier this
year.
McCutchen should be able to
afford the shelf space after sign-
ing with the Pittsburgh Pirates
on Tuesday with a $1.95 million
signing bonus.
He will begin play for the
Bucs' rookie team in Bradenton
in the next few weeks.

Facts About Father's Day


of Spokane,


Wash., wanted to do something special
for an important man in her life her
father. He had singlehandedly raised her
and her five young siblings after the
death of his wife during childbirth.
As an adult, Dodd realized her father's
selfless ways and the sacrifices he made.
So, in the early 1900s, Dodd organized a
celebration of fathers in Spokane during
June, the month of her father's birthday.
Across the nation, towns and cities
began to hold similar celebrations. But
Dodd's efforts took awhile to become offi-
cial.
In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge
publicly supported plans for a national


Father's Day.
In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson
signed a presidential proclamation
declaring the third Sunday in June as
Father's Day.
But it wasn't until President Richard
Nixon signed Father's Day into law in
1972 that it became a permanent
national observance.
Today, people gather on Father's Day
to honor the men in their lives. The day
is not only for honoring fathers. It recog-
nizes all men who act as father figures,
from stepfathers and grandfathers to


uncles and cousins.
Thank the "father"
Father's Day.

15 Ways to Be a Great Dad,


You may need to pass a test in
order to drive, but being a father
doesn't require a license. While
anyone can be a dad, there is a
big difference between being just
a "dad" and being a "great dad."
Don't sweat it, though, if you
need to brush up on your "great
dad" skills. You can easily do so
at any time. Father's Day offers
an opportune time to get you
back on track. Here are some
ways to get started.
1. Don't compare siblings.
They are separate people with
varying interests, talents, etc.
2. Get ready to play. That
game of checkers in the living
room or catch in the backyard
promotes bonding and mental
productivity.
3. Be prepared for the unex-
pected. Your baby could get sick
on the night of your firm's party.
Or your wife may need to work
late one night and need you to
pick up the baby from daycare.
Flexibility on your part can help
control the chaos.


4. Get ready to work. You're
going to have to tote that car
seat, crib, diaper bag, toys and
more. It may not be the most fun
in a blizzard or heatwave, but it's
part of the job.
5. Practice the art of patience.
No matter how loud your baby is
crying, getting upset will only
make it worse.
6. Don't ridicule or put down
anyone in your home. Your goal is
to create a positive household
environment, not a negative one.
7. Listen to what your kids
have to say as well as how and
when they say it. By listening,
you'll learn about their thoughts
and lives and encourage them to
communicate with you even
more.
8. Learn to laugh. It's true
that it's the best medicine and
it's free.
9. Give hugs, especially at the
beginning and end of each day.
It's a simple way of showing that
you care.
10. Be sure to say, "I love you."


Those three words' can make a
kid's day.
11. Keep a united front with
your wife. Yoi both need to agree
on household and ,discipline
issues and tick with th4m "
12. Be aware of '.hat iD; g:ng
on at home. Does Sal:, -?eemi ne-r-
vous about something? .D.oes
Billy have a big test today? :Be on
top of the needs and concerns,-of
your children.
13. Maintain a healthy family.
Feed them a r utriti,:u-i diet.-and
promote activity. It's-'good for.niot
only their bodies. but: 'their
minds, too.
14. Promote honesty. Be truth-
ful with your kids, and teach
them the importance of telling
and accepting the truth.
15. Spend quality time with
your children. Don't just sit and
watch TV. Toss around a base-
ball, tour the zoo or bake a batch
of cupcakes.
These things are what being a
dad is all about.


Treat Dad Like the Hero He Is


From FeatureSource

The original male influence in
our lives is our father. On the
third Sunday of every June, he
gets a special day to call his own.
Many people believe that a quiet,
intimate acknowledgment is all
that dad wants.
"Your father would probably
love a party in his honor," says
Patty Sachs, author of "Pick-A-
Party: The Big Book of Party
Themes and Occasions" and "The
Pick-A-Party Cookbook: Menus,
Recipes and Serving Suggestions
for 101 Theme Parties"
(Meadowbrook Press).
"You could invite siblings, or
family and friends who think of
your dad as a father figure,"
Sachs says. "Of course, another
idea is to have your friends bring


their own dads along to make it a
group celebration of fatherhood."
Sachs says that whether your
father is the sole focus or one of
many dads being celebrated, the
first step is to send out clever
invitations. A good way to cap-
ture attention is to print the
party information on tags
attached to thrift-store neckties.
Then mail the ties out.
If your father is the only hon-
oree, decorate with pictures of
him. Blow up some favorite pho-
tos and hang them on the wall. If
other fathers will be acknowl-
edged during the party, ask their
children to send pictures in
advance so you can display them.
To build upon the theme of
fathers as heroes, use plastic
replicas of the Batmobile as hours
devours bowls. You could also


place Superman or Spider-Man
figures around the party site to
accent the comparison or just to
provide conversation pieces.
When your guests arrive,
serve them Dad's Root Beer or
whatever your father thinks is
appropriate. For once, let him
make the call.
Snacks should be basic fare -
the kind of things that dads like.
But don't be afraid to take a
stand on the main course. This is
because nothing beats hero sand-
wiches for tasty symbolism.
When the party is in full
swing, gather your guests togeth-
er. Ask each of them to tell a
favorite humorous anecdote
about your father. Again, if other
dads are present, have each child
talk about his or her father. You
could even have the guests of


honor the fathers themselves
- tell stories about their old
dads.
Then present the gifts that
your guests have brought. If
there are multiple dads present,
the gift-giving will snowball into
a joyous highlight. In any case,
make sure that at least a couple
of gag gifts are among the trib-
utes.
After the gifts have been pre-
sented and the best stories told,
have your father say a few words.
Any other dads should feel free to
speak up too, because it is their
day as well.
Then send your guests home
with fond memories of a great
day. Perhaps" on their journeys
back, they will reflect on the
presence on the original hero in
their lives: their fathers.


Gifts for Dad: Simplicity is Key


Dads also love surprises, so surprise him on Father's Day.


From Metro News

Nowadays there's a lot of emphasis on
finding that perfect Father's Day gift for this
special man with whom we've shared good
times and bad times. Our dads are always
there to lend us support and wisdom, be it
unhelpful or productive.
Ties, shirts, shoes, office supplies, and 'a
nice Father's Day lunch are some of the usual
gifts. Still there are many of us who can't
decide on what to give our dads. As the days
gets closer, frustration kicks in. One thing to
keep in mind when buying a gift for dad: sim-
plicity is key.
Although the majority of dads are happy
with just our love, they also deserve a nice
surprise to make them feel special on
Father's Day. Lots of times, deciding on that
surprise isn't easy. It's very likely that on the
days leading up to Father's Day, you still may
not know what to get your dad. Or maybe you
haven't been able to buy that ideal gift that'
will really surprise him.
Keep one thing in mind if you haven't
already done so this happens to everyone,


at least once in their lives. You are not the
exception and you are not alone.
When it does happens, ideally you should
find an easy way out that has a traditional
touch to it, like an elegant fountain pen or a
bottle of wine. Your dad will thank you for it,
because the gift in itself is not what's impor-
tant. It's the though that counts.
The reality behind Father's Day is for chil-
dren to please their dads and understand
what being a father really means. To do this,
we've come up with a list of suggestions that
will help you pick out the perfect gift this
Father's Day:
Remember that a gift is not what's most
important to dads. They value your thought
to get them anything be it the most spec-
tacular and latest gadget as in a new TV,
to the simplest and most traditional gift -
like a watch.
Try to be creative and do something
inventive that will touch his heart. You can
write him a special note on a greeting card
and invite him out to eat at a place that will
bring back memories to you both. Or find that
photo where you both appear and buy a nice
wood or metal frame for it. Put your imagina-


tion to work and you'll find simple things that
your dad will appreciate.
Seize the opportunity and let him know
how much you enjoy his company. An original
way of doing this is to get him a couple of
tickets and they don't have to be front-row
seats to a ball game or a football game. You
could also get him an elegant chess table.
Both these suggestions work well for sports
lovers. You can also plan a trip to your local
museum, beach or mountain. The main objec-
tive behind your gift is to spend some quality
time together, on ,,w ever activity he
prefers.
When you haven't had any luck finding
the perfect gift for dad, sit down, breathe
slowly and think for a while. Remember that
simplicity is key. What does your dad like?
What does he enjoy above anything else?
What brings him the most pleasure? These
types of questions will lead you on the right
path. For example: if your dad likes music,
then there's nothing better than a good
album from yesteryear. If he enjoys reading,
then a novel from a classic author may be the
'best gift for him.

I Musings From God's Penman


Go Ahead, Make Dad's Day


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER

Throughout the year, many
celebration days are tucked capri-
ciously into the calendar.
So much so, it is hard to find
* any day of the year where some-
= thing or someone is not being
Observed, which has benefited the
greeting card company you can be
sure.
I'm not positive, but I think
they've had a great deal to do
with designating these days.
Some days are celebrated a lit-
tle more enthusiastically than
others.
The Fourth of July has fire-
crackers; Halloween has funny
and scary costumes, not to men-
tion bags of candy; and Christmas
boasts the Christmas tree and
jolly old St. Nick with all his pre-
sents, and it is hard to compete,
with Christmas parties when it
comes to celebration.
Then we come to Mother's Day.
According to experts, more tele-
phone calls are placed on
Mother's Day than any other day
of the year. Also, try to walk into
a restaurant and get a seat on
Mother's Day.
There is a theory, which I sub-
scribe to personally, stating the
reason Father's Day is so lame is
because so much has been spent
on Mother's Day there is nothing
left.
I think there should be a rule
that says, whatever Mother's Day
costs fathers, mothers should
spend on Father's Day.
This would do one of two
things decrease Mother's Day
n or puff Father's Day. Personally,


I'm in favor of puffing.
Perhaps with some effort,
Father's Day could be a \little
more exciting.
And I'm not saying this just
because I'm a father. Well, maybe
I am, but if I don't, who will?
Fathers in general are rather
humble and hesitant to speak
about themselves. Contrary to
popular opinion, every father
knows talk is not cheap, and
because he has spent so much on
Mother's Day, he simply is prac-
ticing good valor and shuts up.
However, every father needs to
know he is truly appreciated by
his family. Although you cannot
buy a father, it is possible to rent
him on occasion.
I'm in favor of celebrating
Father's Day "Any Which Way
You Can."
It really doesn't matter to the
father involved. Any father would
consider his child a "Million
Dollar Baby" if he or she would
just give a Father's Day card to,
him along with a nice hot cup of
coffee while sitting in his favorite
chair reading the newspaper. .
Nothing the children did
throughout the year would
remain "Unforgiven' if something
this simple were done on Father's
Day.
As it stands, Father's Day is
celebrated "Every Which Way but
Loose," and I believe it is time
this has stopped.
There seems to be too many
loose ends concerning Father's
Day. It is a "True Crime" the way
certain things are left hanging
concerning fathers.
Some fathers have felt like

"The Dead Pool" around Father's
Day, not knowing exactly what to
expect.
Mother's Day is rather simple.
Every mother knows that on
Mother's Day she will get certain
things flowers, a Mother's Day
card, and dinner at her favorite
restaurant.
By the time Father's Day
comes around, everybody is so
exhausted from Mother's Day -
not to mention most fathers are
broke as a result of Mother's Day
nobody knows exactly how to
make dad's day special or, more
importantly, who will finance it.
Too many people are uptight
about Father's Day and feel like
they are running "The Gauntlet."
When I say people, I am refer-
ring primarily to Yours Truly.
Nobody seems to know what to do
about good ole dad on his special
day.
Fortunately, I have some ideas
along this line.
With some of the presents I
have received over the years, I'm
beginning to think my children
imagine me as a "Space Cowboy"
or maybe a "High Plains Drifter"
:driving around in a "Pink
Cadillac" heading for "The
Bridges of Madison County."
Nothing could be further from
the truth, except Howard Dean's
portrayal of the Republican Party.
What he needs on Father's Day is
a "Sudden Impact" of truth.
When it comes to being a
father, I assure you I'm not "The
Rookie" walking on a "Tightrope"
directly "In the Line of Fire" run-
ning toward "Heartbreak Ridge."
I have quite a bit of experience

Lessons From Our

Fathers


One of the many lessons I learned from my father is the
value of family. Despite working twdojobs most of his adult
life, he always made time to be with his family, and went out
of his way to do things that brought our family closer togeth-
er. Often, when there were household' difficulties, he would
bring us all together in the living room for a fainilymeeting
where we would talk about the problems. When weker6e old
enough to start asking about the "birds and th.e bees,",.he
made sure that he and my mother were the ones to explain
sexuality to us. And, he would always'make time to play with
us, whether it was football in the street, basketball out back,
or staging a homemade play that he had put together for us.
All of these, and many more were things that I largely took
for granted as a child. Only later did I begin to realize that
not all children have such loving and caring fathers. Indeed,
many children are raised in environments where they have
virtually no father figure. This Father's Day, tell your father
how much you love and appreciate him and his efforts; and,
if you are a father, strive to be a good one.

I thank my God in all my remembrance )
of you.

A


being a father, going back more]
than 30 years.
As a father, I have three chil-
dren notched on my belt. At
times, I have felt like "The
Enforcer," and the only way to
deal with those children was to
use "Magnum Force" and "Hang
'Em High."
I must confess at times I. felt
like a "Pale Rider" sweating it out
in the "City Heat," realizing no
matter how hard I try, it is not "A
Perfect World" we live in.
What would make my day, and
other fathers' days, would be a
present I could really use, or at
least understand without spend-
ing an entire day reading the
directions.
In spite of all this, I have dis-
covered one thing being a
father is its own reward.
The Bible puts fatherhood high
on the list of important positions
in life.
David, the Psalmist, put his
feelings about being a father into
familiar words to all who have
read the Bible.
"Lo, children are an heritage of
the Lord: and the fruit of the
womb is his reward. As arrows
are in the hand of a mighty man;
so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his
quiver full of them: they shall not
be ashamed, but they shall speak
with the enemies in the gate"
(Psalm 127:3-5 KJV).
This year, my advice is, what-
ever it costs, go ahead and make
dad's day.
He deserves it.

Reflections


On Faith


Great Role Models for Fathers


By ROGER CAMPBELL

This week I've invited my
soon-to-be-50 son, Tim, to join
me in the creation of my column.
Tim is a father and a profes-
sional counselor with editorial
experience, so it's not surprising
that, in my opinion, the strong-
est line in the column came from
his pen though which line will
remain a family secret.
In his article "Our Fathers
Who Are on Earth," appearing in
the May issue of Christianity To-
day," Roland Warren (president
.~of the National Fatherhood Ini-
iative) says the relationship
people have with their fathers
ay directly affect their ability
o relate to God the Father.
One out of three children in
erica grows up without a fa-
er. Add to this scary statistic
he fact that some fathers are
abusive or sirriply self-centered
d it's easy,6 see how impor-
ant it is to develop fathers who
e not only there, but care.
Here are some role models for
en who long to become the fa-
thers they ought to be.
SJoshua was a military dad
who came to power after the
death of Moses. His responsibili-
ties were mind boggling.
Imagine taking over the tasks
of the great law giver who had
4ed his people out of slavery and-
.hrough the Red Sea to the b'or-
der of the Promised Land.
,. The pressures of Joshua's po-
4lition (military captain:and.po-
itical leader of the nation) mtist
fave been almost overwhelming.
But this working father was de-
ermined he wouldn't lose his
familyy in the process of success-
ully fulfilling his rold bn the job.'
Keeping his priorities right
seems to have. been the secret of
Joshua's fatherly success: "As for
tne and my house, we will serve
he Lord," he said (Joshua
4-'15). .


And centuries later, this dedi-
cated dad's enduring declaration
decorates many front doors.
The prodigal's father, de-
scribed in a parable told by Je-
sus (Luke 15), was approachable,
affectionate, and assuring in
every situation. When his
younger son wanted his inheri-
tance early so he could travel
and test his ability to succeed, he
felt free to approach his father.
Some might have slipped
away at night, but this son was
so confident of his father's love
that he simply asked for and re-
ceived his share of the family
fortune. When he found himself
out of money, friends, and food,
he headed for home and upon
nearing the old homestead saw
his father running to meet him
with open arms,
The father in this parable rep-
resents God, and this'is the only
example we have'in the Bible of
God running.
One writer says the prodigal's
father was out of breath, but he
wasn't out of love.
Now consider the greatest role
model of all.
SConsider the many times Je-
sus referred to God as His father
in the Lord's Prayer, on the
cross, at the ascension, to name
a few.
Indeed, the whole plan of re-
.demption rests 'on the' Father
sending His son to redeem us,
paying for.our,.sinf.... .;
'. A few yeais ago, before the
proliferatiroi of cell phones made
such .:surveys difficult, it was
said that the one day on which
the most:phone calls were made
was Mother's Day, while the
most collect calls were made on
Father's Day.
Call your father, paying for
the call if you can.
And call your Heavenly Fa-
ther. He's already covered the
cost.

Father's Day Frittata
With Crab and Three Cheeses
This recipe would work well with imitation crab, or try
lobster or chicken (for a "mother-child reunion").
Preparation Time: 30 mins, Cook Time: 15 mins
Servings: 6
8 ounces Swiss chard
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
3/4 cup crabmeat
2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8 eggs beaten
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons grated Par-mesan cheese
Remove and discard tough stems from chard. Blanch
leaves in lightly salted boiling water until just wilted,
about 2 minutes. Drain and immerse in ice water to stop
cooking process. Drain again, gently squeezing out any
excess moisture. Chop coarsely and set aside.
Preheat broiler.
Heat a large, oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
Add olive oil and swirl to coat bottom. Add onion and bell
pepper and saute until soft, about 4 minutes. Add chard
and saut6 for 2 more minutes. Stir in crab, bread crumbs,
salt and pepper; mix well. Pour eggs over top and sprinkle
with Monterey Jack and cheddar. Reduce heat to medium
and cook until bottom begins to set. Carefully lift cooked
portion with a spatula and allow uncooked portion to run
underneath. Continue to cook until bottom is a pale gold-
en and top is almost set.
Sprinkle Parmesan over frittata and place 5 inches
from heat. Broil until top is golden and set, about 3 min-
utes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Father's Day:



Happy .


and Healthy

Grills and men are forever linked, but on Father's Day
women and children can take over the barbecue chores, or
cook up a culinary treat indoors.
How about breakfast in bed for Dad? Or a delicious,
heart-healthy lunch?
Since it's a special day, splurge on dessert, even if
you're watching your weight.
Father's Day is a good day to think about Dad's health,
so we can keep him around as long as possible,to help with
homework and car repairs, to give us sage advice or tell
stories of "when I was your age."
Today's recipes include some good-for-you ideas, includ-
ing dessert, and others that may not be quite as healthy,
but substitutions can be made in some to reduce fat.
For the tiger in your father, start the day with a Jungle
Smoothie, or drink it as a quick pick-me-up during a
game of horseshoes or croquet.
