City Finances Tight,


FIF Wright Tells Council
'11;" aS ^ ^ S '^-' ...* sS '" "


Bartow's finances are getting
tight, Fin. Dir. David Wright told
the city commission on Monday.
"I'm starting to be a little con-
cerned about cash flow," he said.
"We have enough money in the
bank to pay our bills, but it could
blow up in our face.
"I've never seen prices go up so
fast," he continued.
The city's expenditures for gaso-
line are up $100,000 from a year
ago, and personnel costs are up
$500,000, he said.
Wright made his comments at a
work session which preceded the
regular commission meeting.
In other business, the commis-
sion:
Held a closed meeting with its
attorney to discuss a lawsuit
brought by John and Terry Frost
in an attempt to block high-densi-
ty zoning near their home.
Referred to City Mgr. Joseph
J. DeLegge complaints from Frank
Webster about the condition of the
little league football field at the
Bartow Park complex on County
Road 555, and the closing of a road
into the park.
Passed on first reading ordi-


nances to:
(1) Allow modular buildings to
be erected in all parts of the city,
provided they meet Dept. of
Community Affairs standards. At
present, they are restricted to res-
idential zones.
(2) Reduce the performance
bond required of subdivision devel-
opers from 100 percent to 25 per-
cent of the value of streets, utili-
ties, and other infrastructure in
their developments. Planning Dir.
Robert Wiegers, who recommend-
ed the action, said that in the
future, he may recommend a fur-
ther reduction.
(3) Create "Rural Estate" zon-
ing classifications of RE-1 (one
home per acre) and RE-2 (two
homes per acre), including land for
street rights-of-way, and to delete
reference to the number of homes
per acre allowed by the code. The
code will specify the minimum lot
size, leaving it to people to do their
own math to figure out how many
houses will be allowed per acre.
"It's one of those numbers that
scares people," Wiegers told the
commission.
Rescheduled the commission's


July 4 meeting to Tuesday, July 5.
Waived the city's ban on fire-
works to allow the city to put on a
fireworks display on the Fourth of
July. The waiver applies only to
the city's display.
Adopted a resolution allowing
the city to borrow up to $2 million
from its "rainy day fund" for con-
struction of a new gym at Carver
Recreation Center and purchase of
property adjoining Bartow
Municipal Airport for the electric
department. The money is to be
repaid when funds are borrowed
for those projects.
Ratified an agreement with
the Polk County commission for
removal of debris from future hur-
ricanes.
Ratified an updated agree-
ment with the Florida Dept. of
Law Enforcement for access to its
Florida Crime Information Center
and National Crime Information
Center data bases.
Noted Gerald Cochran's com-
plaint that the city is hiring con-
sultants to do work that he says
department heads should be
doing.


Consultant To Examine


Main Street Water Data


;TWO BROOMS and a couple of shovels (top photo) won't be old Ritz Theatre) collapsed Wednesday, sending rubble all the way
enough to sweep away the rubble from two Main Street buildings dev- across the street. A dust cloud billows frori the old Tate-Phillips build-
astated by fire on June 6. The front wall of the middle building (the ing (above) as a bite is taken from the second floor. Experts will eval-
uate the first floor to determine if it needs to come down, as well.

The city has called in a consul-
tant to examine data compiled on
water pressure in downtown
Bartow and determine if improve-
ments are needed to insure ade-
quate fire protection.
"I think a third party opinion
will be good to resolve this issue,"
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge told
the city commission on Monday.
The city has conducted exten-
sive testing of water pressure at
Main Street fire hydrants after a
disastrous fire on June 6 that
destroyed three businesses locat-
ed in the former Tate-Phillips
Hardware building and the old
Ritz Theater building next door.
Main Street has been closed
ever since that fire, out of concern

lapse onto traffic. Razing of the
building began on Tuesday and is
expected to be completed this
week.
When the demolition is com-
plete, Main Street will be opened
to traffic, DeLegge said.
After the fire, City
Commissioner Brian Hinton,
owner of Bartow Consulting
Group, one of the businesses that
was destroyed, said there was
inadequate water pressure to
fight the fire. His opinion was
supported by firefighters and by
several witnesses to the fire.
DeLegge, who was on vacation
but returned to Bartow while the


fire was still raging, said his
information indicated that water
pressure was adequate.
Hinton's business was in the
old movie theater building, and
Jerue Trucking and Gateway
Insurance were in the old Tate-
Phillips building.
All three businesses are oper-
ating in other locations.
Asst. City Mgr. Linda Weldon
has made a "preliminary investi-
gation" into problems encoun-
tered by firefighters, DeLegge
said.

Downtown Dollars Promotion Offers

Shopping Sprees For Downtown Shoppers


Bartow Chamber of Commerce
Committee of 100 and The Polk
County Democrat have partnered
with a promotion to assist retail
businesses affected by the closing
of Main Street due to the recent
fire that consumed a good part of
the street's 200 block.
The promotion, called
"Downtown Dollars," will run for
four consecutive weeks and con-
sist of two weekly drawings for
$50 shopping sprees.
To be eligible for the drawings,
individuals must fill out entry
forms located in The Polk County
Democrat's Thursday editions
beginning with today's paper.
Entry forms are also available
at 21 downtown retailers:
Appleseeds, Bartow Christian
Books and Gifts, Bartow
Electronics, Bartow Jewelry &
Pawn, Birch Tree Coffee House,
Chinoiserie Antiques, Cookie Jar
Bakeshop, Cool Shoppe, Extreme
Limits, Family Book Exchange,
Great Wall ('hinie- Restaurant,
Johnny's Sports Cafe, Main
Street Gym, Main Street Tailors,


Mr. & Mrs. Mac's Antiques,
Philip's Antiques, Sarah's
Flowers, Shady Oak Cafe, Town
& Country Interiors, Turnkey
Signs, and Yesterday & Today
Antiques.
Entry forms should be placed
in the "Downtown Dollars" entry
barrel that will move each
Thursday. The barrel will begin
at Great Wall Chinese
Restaurant on Thursday, June
23, and remain there until the
first drawing on June 29 at 5 p.m.
It will then move to Mr. & Mrs.
Mac's Antiques from June 30
through July 6; Philip's Antiques
from July 7 through July 13, and
Bartow Christian Books and Gifts
from July 14 through July 20.
After each Wednesday draw-
ing, the drum will be emptied to
accept the next week's entries.
A task force, implemented by
the Chamber's Committee of 100,
met on June 15 to address the sit-
uation, which has slowed busi-
ness at downtown shops and
restaurants.
Task force chairman Jim


Duane, executive director of
Bartow's CRA, said that business-
es had already seen a decline in
shoppers due to the streetscap-
ing.
It was the fire, however, that
forced the closing of Main Street
and some of the side streets
severely curtailing business for
the retailers.
"We needed to do something to
bring people back downtown,"
Duane said. "The sidewalks are
open and access to the downtown
businesses is not difficult."
Other Committee of 100 mem-
bers serving on the task force
with Duane are Karen Guffey,
Gibson & Wirt; Linda Holcomb,
Polk County Democrat; Pam
Mitchell, Citrus & Chemical
Bank; Pam Renew, Ray Willis &
Associates; Anita Stasiak, Citrus
& Chemical Bank; Brian Strout,
Clear .Springs Land Company,
LLC, and Jeff Clark, Chamber
executive director.
Ad space for the promotion is
being donated by The Polk
County Democrat.

Hooyman with the Traffic En-
forcement Division told Bartow
Lions Club members at their
June 21 luncheon meeting of the
primary function of their divi-
sion to reduce accidents
through enforcement of traffic
laws, education, and engineer-
ing.
Deputy Hooyman said that
138 people died in traffic acci-
dents in Polk County last year.
"Traffic safety effects us all,"
Hooyman said.
Tools employed by the divi-
sion in an effort to reduce traffic
accidents include an aviation
unit, radar monitors, laser guns,


and speed limit enforcement.
The deputies told their audi-
ence that professional truck driv-
ers and persons driving in the
left .hand lane must adhere to
speed limit laws just as any
other driver does.
A driver stopped for exceeding
the speed limit by 10 miles per
hour in a 55 miles per hour zone
may be fined up to $189.50,
Hooyman said. Speeding fines
may go as high as $305.50, and
aggressive driving fines go up to
$500.
Fines collected for traffic vio-
lations are used for training ex-
penses, the deputies said.
Lion Kenny Quinn was pro-
gram chairman.

Mother-In-Law: Henry Albritton A


June 23, 2005 The Polk County Democrat


Story of 'Strength and Resilience' Bartow Winn-Dixie Store To Stay Apple School
The story of the murder of Elwood North, and the trial fol- cation because of epilepsy. His Open; Company Closing 326 Others Accepting
Betty Albritton in Fort Meade in lowinge have been published in seizures frightened the children A rt'lir atio srC


.7aiL, aim ilte exeAULUII US k.
Elwood North, the undertaker
who tried to hide her injuries, has
been told many times.
Little attention has been
focused on her son, Henry, who
was a teenager at the time of her
death.
His father had died earlier -
some have suggested that North
may have had a part in his death,
too and Mrs. Albritton's death
left him an orphan.
His mother-in-law, Willie Lou
Bearrentine, whom he calls
"Mama," gave The Leader this
account of Henry Albritton.

Two lengthy articles about the
murder of Betty Albritton by


By JENNIFER STARLING
Staff Writer

Former Bartow Sonny's Real
Pit Bar-B-Q cashier Monica Hope
Jenkins was sentenced to two
years state prison Tuesday for
stealing some $50,000 over two
years from the restaurant.
A jury convicted Jenkins of
scheming to defraud and grand
theft in April. She will serve 18
years of probation after she is
released from prison.
Jenkins, now 29, was arrested
in 2001 after then restaurant
Manager Kenny Congdon report-
ed to Bartow police that he
believed Jenkins was "holding"
tickets so they wouldn't be print-
ed by the cash register.
Congdon had researched the
daily totals and found several
'tickets that were not printed,
which totaled a "high amount of

Jenkins was "the only employee
able to do these type of transac-

During the 2004-2005 year,
Benevolence Chairman Jajuania
Lott of Annie H. Darracott No.
791, United Daughters of the
Confederacy, donated 435
pounds of empty prescription
bottles to the Talbot House Mis-
sion in Lakeland.
This was accomplished with
the help of friends, family, aAd
UDC members from as far away
as St. Augustine.
Each prescription bottle is
used for daily medication to indi-
viduals who are homeless and
seeking medical care at the facil-
ity. If the Talbot House receives
more prescription bottles than
" they can use, the excess is do-
: nated to foreign missions in
third world countries.
Donations of empty bottles

Episcopal Church in Lakeland
on the fourth Tuesday of each
month between 7 and 9 p.m.

Over the years, the story has
been in papers and magazines
again and again. It was news
when it happened, and it's still
news that draws people's atten-
tion.
The tragedy of it is still real,
especially to the man who was
that teenaged boy who lived
through the heartbreak and hor-
ror of this time Betty
Albritton's son, Henry.
His life has been a positive'
story, in spite of all that hap-
pened. He is a survivor, and I
think that should be added. As
Paul Harvey would say it's time
for "the rest of the story."
Henry was deprived of an edu-


tions."
In her position as head cashier,
Congdon said at the time,
Jenkins had opportunities to con-
ceal money while in the back
office of the business while she
was alone counting it.
Bartow police detectives sub-
poenaed Jenkins' checking and
savings account records, which
showed that she had deposited
$90,462.62 for the years 1999 and
2000, while reporting a
$14,802.67 income to the Internal
Revenue Service on her W-2 form,
and she had deposited $3,845.54
in a separate savings account.
Detectives then examined
restaurant sales tickets from
1999 and 2000, determining that
$93,245.21 had been stolen.
Jenkins was fired on Jan. 1,
2001. She then went to work as a
waitress at Cleveland Heights
Golf Course in Lakeland, where
she was arrested.
She could have faced up to 30
years in prison for the thefts.


in tLie IILLiu country school, uso te
teacher told his mother not to
send him to school any more.
He was deprived of most of the
inheritance that should have
been his, but he's worked and
made his own way. He has
worked for the same company for
more than 30 years.
Henry attends church regular-
ly, and is active in the church. He
loves his family, his in-law family,
since he has no family of his own.
He has reached retirement
age, but still plans to work as
long as he's able.
Henry is a good example of the
strength and resilience of the
human spirit.

Summerlin Street or Davidson
Street, the two streets which par-
allel Main Street, he said. That
option would cost less than
putting a new line under Main

Lateral lines from Summerlin

John Alvarez, owner of Shady

Quilt To Be Raffled For
Speight Memorial Scholarship


In 1992, when Karla Speight
lost her battle with breast can-
cer, a scholarship fund was es-
tablished with memorial gifts
that were received from friends
and family.
Because Ms. Speight was a
nurse, and because she and her
family were reminded of the ex-
treme importance of compassion-
ate nursing care during her ill-
ness, a nursing scholarship was
set up for Fort Meade High
School graduates who were at-
tending the nursing program at
Polk Community College.
Ms. Speight was a graduate of
both of these institutions.
This scholarship is in part
dedicated to nurses everywhere
who have devoted their lives to
the care of others.
Over the years, 27 scholar-
ships have been awarded in the
amount of $11,000.
In order to continue the schol-
arship after the initial seed
money became short, a cookbook,
"With Love from .Karla's
Kitchen," a compilation of favor-
ite recipes used by Ms. Speight
and her friends, was published
and sold in the Fort Meade com-
munity.
The cookbook was so popular
that a second and third printing
of the book was necessary. In to-
tal, 1,000 books were sold.

. For the first time since 1992,
no Karla Speight Nursing Schol-
arship was offered to this year's
graduates of Fort Meade High
School because of lack of funds.
The scholarship committee
decided that another fund raiser
was necessary and the result is a
handmade quilt that will be raf-
fled.
The red, white, and blue Ohio
Star quilt was pieced by Nancy
Kitchings and hand-quilted by
Verna Atwell. The large quilt
will fit a king sized bed with a
dust ruffle, or a queen sized bed
without a ruffle.
Tickets for the quilt will go on
sale at the Fort Meade Fourth of
July celebration at Peace River
Park.
After that, the quilt will be on
display around the community
with opportunity to purchase
tickets until the night of the Fort
Meade Christmas Parade, when
the winning ticket will be drawn.
Contributions to the Karla
Speight Scholarship fund will be
accepted at the Fort Meade
branch of Sun Trust Bank.

Airport Challenge:


Keep New Terminal


Within the Budget


The challenge facing Bartow
Municipal Airport is to keep its
planned new terminal building
on budget as construction costs
are rising rapidly.
Steve Henriquez and Susan
Nute of URS Corp., the airport's
consulting engineering firm, sug-
gested to the city commission,
meeting as the airport authority,
various building materials and
construction modifications to
keep the project within budget.
The budget for the project is
$2,575,705 for construction of an
18,000-square foot terminal
building, and $1,361,997 for an
aircraft apron providing access
to the building.
The Florida Dept. of Trans-
portation will pay 80 percent of


the cost of the terminal, with the
airport paying 20 percent, Henri-
quez said:
The Federal Aviation Admin-
istration will pay 95 percent of
the aircraft apron, with the city
and the FDOT each paying 2.5
percent, he said.
The challenge is to stay
within the budget, because nei-
ther the FAA nor the FDOT can
be expected to increase its share
of the cost if the project comes in
over budget, he said.
The airport authority will
hold another work session on
June 27 to start tying down de-
tails on the terminal, which will
include a restaurant and a mu-
seum in addition to airport of-
fices and flight support facilities.

Bartow's Winn-Dixie grocery
store survived the cut and will
remain open, after the company
decided to sell or close 326 stores
in an effort "to strengthen" its
performance.
Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc., an-
nounced Tuesday that it would
reduce its store "footprint" from
913 stores in the United States
and the Bahamas to 587 stores.
The Jacksonville-based
chain's plan focuses "on its
strongest markets, where it typi-
cally has a significant market
share position," and reducing the
number of stores.
Peter Lynch, president and
chief executive officer of Winn-
Dixie, said: "Creating a smaller,
but more profitable store base
will best position Winn-Dixie for
long-term financial health and a
successful future.
"We will be focusing our re-
sources on markets where Winn-
Dixie has a strong presence and
there are compelling opportuni-
ties. This will allow us to build
on our strengths and take ad-
vantage of the considerable po-
tential we see to improve the
shopping experience for our cus-
tomers. Already, 'we have made
significant strides. The steps an-
nounced today will help us to
continue our progress as we
strive to make Winn-Dixie a
stronger company, better able to
compete in the marketplace with
a strong foundation for the fu-
ture."
Winn-Dixie currently operates
901 stores in nine states and 12
in the Bahamas. These stores
are located in 37 designated
market areas (DMAs). Once the
footprint plan is implemented,
Winn-Dixie will operate approxi-
mately 587 stores in 23 DMAs in
Florida, Alabama, Louisiana,
Georgia, Mississippi, and the Ba-
hamas.
Of the 326 stores that will be
sold or closed, 233 stores are in
DMAs the company is leaving
entirely. The other 93 stores are
located in DMAs in which Winn-
Dixie will remain, but these par-
ticular stores do not meet the
company's financial require-


ments going forward.
Winn-Dixie's anticipated an-
nual revenue following these
store dispositions will be ap-
proximately $7.5 billion, com-
pared to approximately $10 bil-
lion today. A full list of the
stores affected by today's an-
nouncement, along with a map of
the current and future footprint,
is available at www.winn-
dixie.com.
Winn-Dixie is also making
changes in its distribution and
manufacturing plant operations,
closing three of its 10 distribu-
tion centers. These facilities are
located in Atlanta; Charlotte,
N.C.; and Greenville, S.C. The
company also will close the por-
tion of the Montgomery, Ala.,
distribution center that handles
dry grocery. The "perishables"
portion of the Montgomery dis-
tribution center will remain
open, and the Hammond, La. dry
grocery facility will be expanded
to accommodate the dry grocery
items now handled in the Mont-
gomery facility.
In addition, Winn-Dixie is
marketing for sale its manufac-
turing plants, including its six
dairy and culture plants, its
pizza plant in Montgomery, and
its Chek Beverage/Deep South
Products plant in Fitzgerald,
Ga., which produces Chek soda,,
shelf-stable juices and condi-
ments. If buyers are not found,
the company'will continue to op-
erate the Chek Beverage plant
and the Hammond, La., and
Plant City dairies. The company
is looking for a third party to
produce elsewhere the items
made at its Astor Products plant
in Jacksonville, and the condi-
ments'at the Deep South plant.
Once third parties are secured,
those plants will be closed.
A Deep South egg distribution
facility in Bartow closed a few
years ago.
The company, with its outside
advisors, is conducting an active
marketing effort to find potential
buyers for the stores, distribu-
tion centers and manufacturing
plants that it will no longer oper-
ate. Stores that cannot be sold

will be closed. The company ex-
pects to announce the results of
this marketing effort within sev-
eral weeks.
"Our hope is to sell as many of
our affected stores, plants and
DCs as possible to new owners
who will continue to operate
them," stated Lynch. "We are
asking potential new owners to
offer employment opportunities
to our associates." Winn-Dixie
will provide severance and other
assistance to each associate who
is not offered employment.
In the 14 areas Winn-Dixie is
leaving, it has either had a diffi-
cult market position, unsatisfac-
tory financial performance, and
limited opportunities for profit-
able sales growth, or it has de-
termined that the stores are too
distant from its continuing dis-
tribution facilities to be operated
on a cost-effective basis.
Those DMAs are Alexandria,
La.; Atlanta; Augusta, Ga.;
Charleston, S.C.; Charlotte,
N.C.; Chattanooga, Tenn.; Co-
lumbia, S.C.; Columbus-Tupelo,
Miss.; Greensboro-High Point,
N.C.; Greenville-Spartanburg,
S.C.; Huntsville, Ala.; Jackson,
Miss.; Raleigh-Durham, N.C.;
and Savannah, Ga.
Winn-Dixie expects that its
workforce will be reduced by ap-
proximately 28 percent, or
22,000 positions. Where practi-
cal, the company will offer af-
fected associates positions at
other Winn-Dixie operations. In
addition, the company is review-
ing its corporate organization
and plans to make reductions in
headquarters and support per-
sonnel.
"We regret the impact these
tough decisions will have on
many of our associates, custom-
ers and local communities,"
Lynch said. The actions are "es-
sential to restore Winn-Dixie's fi-
nancial health. We are commit-
ted to doing what we can to help
minimize the impact, including,
wherever possible, attempting to
find new owners who will con-
tinue to operate the stores, dis-
tribution centers and plants that
we are exiting. In addition, we
will offer assistance to affected
associates to help them through
a transition period."

4A The Polk County Democrat June 23, 2005





Editorial











Board Was Right


To Protect Salaries


The Polk County school board showed
good judgment earlier this month when it
decided to "grandfather in" the salaries of
six school-based administrators who are
being placed in jobs for which the salary
schedule is lower than their present rate of
pay.
Among them is Dr. Steve Petrie, a high-
ly-respected educator who will become
principal of Union Academy Magnet
Middle School in Bartow; his salary is the
farthest out of line from the schedule.
Others are principals or assistant princi-
pals at Bethune Academy, Elbert
Elementary, Lake Alfred Elementary,
Daniel Jenkins Academy Middle, and East
Area Adult School.
In Petrie's case, he was an area assistant
superintendent when that post was elimi-
nated by then-Supt. Jim Thornhill in 2002.
He and other administrators were allowed
to keep their salaries in their new jobs,
most if not all as school principals.
We said at the time that we didn't think
it was practical for each of the more than
100 principals in the Polk County school
system to answer personally to the super-
intendent.
Dr. Gale McKinzie, who succeeded
Thornhill and became Polk's first appoint-
ed superintendent, reorganized her staff,
creating top assistants to whom principals
report. (She organized them according to
academic level, rather than geography.)
It is important to note that the area assis-
tant superintendents were not demoted
because of their job performance; their
jobs were eliminated by reorganization.
While a sound argument might be made
for reducing salaries of the six educators to
match the new jobs, we believe a better
argument can be made for keeping faith


with six managers who presumably were
worth the salaries they were receiving
before the reorganization.
Dr. McKinzie told the board that before
administrators received a three-percent
raise this year, quite a few more were being
paid outside the salary range. By next year,
all but one will be within the prescribed
range for their jobs, she said.
It is not unusual for government agen-
cies to protect the salaries of employees
who are reclassified into lower paying jobs
for reasons unrelated to their performance.
The issue with school-based administra-
tors is a newsmaker because the salaries
are higher and the positions more promi-
nent than those of the average government
employee.
The vote to "grandfather in" the six
school executives at their salaries passed
by a 5-to-2 vote. One argument made
against the action was the question of what
message it would send to other educators.
To us, the answer is that when in doubt,
the school board will keep faith with its
employees. That's not a bad message to
send.

If you .attended last week's downtown
Friday Fest street party, you couldn't help
but notice that most of the people selling
food on behalf of four downtown restau-
rants were wearing the distinctive orange
shirts of the Cri'kette Club.

They are among many people who have
gone out of their way to support mer-
chants on the five blocks of Main Street
that have been closed to vehicles since the
disastrous fire on June 6 that destroyed the
old Tate-Phillips Hardware and Ritz
Theater buildings.'
Many Main Street merchants already


were experiencing loss of business because
of the Main Street redesign project that has
brought a temporary end to parking on
Main.
Upon hearing that some Main Street
restaurants were unable to stay open for
the Friday Fest activities because they
couldn't afford to pay overtime to their
employees, the Crickettes stepped forward
to volunteer their services.
It was a show of class that says a lot not
only about members of the Crickette Club,
'but about the community of Bartow.


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

Do the Math


Back in the early 1980s, when
my son was in elementary school,
I took him to Camp Blanding
with me for a weekend.
I. was to give a class for the
Family Support Group, and since
I wasn't getting paid for it, I
decided to make it a "boys' week-
end out."
Around Ocala, Loyal asked
how much longer it would take
to reach our destination.
"Well, Son, we're averaging 50
miles per hour, and it's about 50
miles to Camp Blanding. If we
travel 50 miles in an hour, and we
have 50 miles to go, how long
should it take us?"
Loyal beamed.
"An hour!"
Then he told me that was the
first time he realized that there
was a use for mathematics, a sub-
ject which he previously believed
was included in the curriculum
solely to make his life more diffi-
cult.
The math gene was passed
down the female side of the fam-
ily. One daughter is a math
teacher, and both daughters and
my wife are quite skilled in the


use of numbers.
My father couldn't even do
algebra (though he was smart
enough to figure out any practical
math problem in some other fash-
ion, which probably involved
using all 10 fingers and 10 toes)
and I had the distinction of grad-
uating from FSU without passing
a math course.
The school only required three
hours credit in math, which I
exempted in my admissions test-,
ing. I also exempted six more
hours without credit, which is a
mystery. That put me in an
advanced math course, which I
flunked in 1959. I could take it
again today and I would flunk it
again, unless I had Peggy at my
elbow tutoring me. I would not
be her prize student.
Anyway, Loyal made the blaz-
ing realization that there really is
a practical use for math on that
trip to Camp Blanding.
I still enjoy doing a little sim-
ple arithmetic.
Perhaps the simplest was on a
vacation to Canada that Loyal,
Mary and I took a few years ago.
In Canada, all the distance


signs are posted in kilometers. As
I drove, I would instantly trans-
late kilometers into miles.
"Seventy kilometers; that's a
little less than 45 miles.
"One hundred kilometers;
that's around 62, maybe 63
miles."
They were so impressed that I
should have left well enough
alone, but I finally confessed that
since we had rented a car in
Canada, the speedometer was
marked in both miles per hour
and kilometers per hour.
Periodically, I get an offer for
unlimited use of a web site for
1,000 hours; in the fine print, it
says the 1,000 hours must be used
within six weeks.
Curious as to just what I was
being offered, I multiplied six
weeks times seven days times 24
hours, and discovered that in
order to use all 1,000 hours, I
would get only eight hours of
sleep in six weeks. There are 1,008
hours in six weeks. Such a deal.
This week I got an offer from
one of my credit card companies
that told me they loved me so
much that they were going to


give me a $1,000 accidental death
life insurance policy for one year,
absolutely free.
Let me tell you that at my age,
any dying I do is definitely going
to be by accident; I'm not plan-
ning anything intentional. But it
might be nice to be covered if I
got hit by a falling baby grand
piano while strolling in front of
Carnegie Hall.
Anyway, the credit card com-
pany also allowed me to pur-
chase additional coverage in
amounts from $10,000 to
$250,000.
Curious as to just how much
the credit card company loves
me, I looked at the premium on
$10,000 and divided to 10 to see
exactly how much premium they
were going to pay to give me a
free life insurance policy.
The answer, based on a month-
ly premium of $1.24 for $10,000
coverage, is that the credit card
company was going to fork over
12.4 cents per month, or a little
less than a buck-fifty for the
entire year.
It's humbling to be so loved.

Dr. James M. Denham, his-

Florida Southern's Center for
Florida History, received the
Preservationist of the Year
award at the City of Lakeland's

Historic Lakeland, Inc. annual

ing to the community an aware-
ness of Lakeland's heritage and
the importance of preserving it.
He assisted in producing a
quarterly newsletter, The Lake-
land Historical Quarterly, which
keeps the community informed
of historic preservation-related
events.
"Since coming to Lakeland in
1991, Dr. Denham has taken an
active part in supporting varied
local history and preservation ef-
forts in our community," said
David Rubin, co-chairman of the
Historic Preservation Board, and
chairman of the board's design
review committee. "These inter-
ests continued in 1997 when he
joined the board of.directors of
Historic Lakeland, Inc., serving

contributions to the historic
preservation program.


Tampa Mayor. Pam lorio
helped The Mosaic Company
christen its sulfur barge "S/B Ba-
hia de Tampa", at a ceremony
Wednesday, June 15, at The
Florida Aquarium.
Mayor lorio opened the cere-
mony by pouring the one mil-
lionth gallon of seawater deliv-
ered by Mosaic to The Florida
Aquarium since September 2004,
when Mosaic and the aquarium
began their partnership.
"Mosaic is a great corporate
partner," Mayor Iorio said.
"They strive to strike a balance
between meeting the world's
growing need for food and pre-
serving our natural environ-
ment. I'm honored to recognize
the work Mosaic donates to our
aquarium by being a part of this
ceremony."
The Florida Aquarium is
home to more than 10,000
aquatic plants and animals from
Florida and all over the world,
and is in constant need of fresh,
seawater to sustain its various
marine ecosystems.
Mosaic donates the use of its
"S/B Bahia de Tampa" barge to
transport seawater from the
Gulf of Mexico to the aquarium,
where it is treated, balanced,
and released into the tanks of
the sharks, stingrays, sea drag-
ons, and other creatures that
have been seen by nearly 6.5
million visitors since the aquar-
ium opened in 1995.
The 472-foot-long Bahia de
Tampa carries molten sulfur to
Mosaic's processing plant in Riv-
erview. The water that Mosaic
delivers to the aquarium is
stored in the ballast tanks of the
barge and is separated from the
areas where molten sulfur is
stored.

In efforts to 'prevent heat-
stroke fatalities among children,
the Polk County Health Depart-
ment (PCHD) joins the National
Safe Kidp Campaign and the lo-
cal Polk County Safe Kids Chap-
ter in educating the public on
the dangers of leaving children
unattended in motor vehicles.
People are urged to contact
emergency services immediately
if they see children alone in a ve-
hicle. It could save a child's life.
Even in mild weather, the in-
terior of a parked car can rise to
dangerous temperatures in just
a few minutes.
Since a child's body tempera-
ture increases three to five times
faster than an adult's, every
minute counts when a child is
trapped in a hot vehicle. The re-
sults can include permanent or-
gan damage or death.
Approximately 30 children na-
tionwide die every year from
heat-related illness after being
trapped in a motor vehicle.
Many of these, deaths happen
when a child is left behind or for-
gotten by an adult, while others
occur when a child gains access
to an unlocked car and can not
get out.
According to research done by
General Motors (GM) since 1996
a total of 228 fatalities have
been identified based upon me-
dia reports. The actual number,
however, could be higher.
Here are some tips to help
keep children safe:
Never leave a child unat-
tended in a motor vehicle, even
for a quick errand with a window
slightly open.
If you find a child left alone
inma parked car, call 911 and get
some air into the car, even if you
have to break a window. If you
are in an OnStar-equipped vehi-
cle, simply push the red emer-
gency OnStar button. You will be
quickly connected with an On-
Star emergency services advisor
who will expedite the call to pub-
lic safety.
Always lock your vehicle -
especially at home and keep
keys out of children's reach.

Also, if your vehicle has child-re-
sistant locks, teach older chil-
dren how to unlock the doors if
they unintentionally get locked
in. To prevent children from be-
ing locked in the trunk, ask your
dealer about getting your car ret-
rofitted with an interior trunk
release.
Make sure all children leave
the vehicle upon arrival at a des-
tination. Be especially careful if
transporting children on a spe-
cific day or time that is not part
of your normal routine. In the
case of infants that may be
sleeping, get into the habit of
placing your purse or briefcase
on the floor of the rear seat near
where the child is seated to
make sure you have to go into
the rear seat before leaving the
vehicle.
Teach children not to play
in, on or around vehicles, even in
your own garage. Children can
enter an unlocked car parked at
home and be unable to get back
out.
Before you buckle up a child
in a car that has been parked in
a warm spot, check the tempera-
ture of the car seat or uphol-
stery. These surfaces can burn,
and a burn is one of the most
painful and devastating injuries
a child can suffer. Because chil-
dren have thinner skin than
adults, their skin burns more
deeply and at lower tempera-
tures.
Watch children closely.
around vehicles, especially when
loading and unloading.

passenger seat beside you as a
reminder if you're dropping off a
child at school or day care and
that's not part of your daily rou-
tine. You might think you could
never forget your a child is with
you, but it can happen.
If your kids do get locked in a
, car, get them out and call 911
immediately for follow-up as-
sessment. Heatstroke is a life-
threatening medical emergency.
Get immediate medical help
any time a child's skin is hot to
the touch (with or without per-
spiration) or if a child has a sei-
zure or becomes disoriented after
exposure to high temperatures.
Folding windshield shades
help keep the interior of a
parked car from getting hot to
the touch, but they don't make it
safe to leave a child inside. Also,
window shades that attach with
suction cups can become danger-
ous projectiles in the event of a
crash, and Safe Kids does not
recommend using them.
Finally, note that state and lo-
cal prosecutors can file criminal
charges of child endangerment
against an adult who leaves a
child alone in a car anywhere,
even for a minute.
The most foolproof precaution
is also the simplest: never leave
your child alone in a vehicle.

POLK COUNTY, FLORIDA,
UNDER THE
NATIONAL FLOOD IN-
SURANCE PROGRAM
On December 20, 2000, the
Department of Homeland Secu-
rity's Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency identified
Special Flood Hazard Areas (
SFHAs) in the unincorporated
areas of Polk County, Florida,
through the issuance of a Flood
Insurance Rate Map (FIRM). The
Mitigation Division has deter-
mined that modification of the
elevations of the flood having a
1-percent chance of being
equaled or exceeded in any
given year (base flood) for cer-
tain locations in this community
is appropriate. The modified
Base Flood Elevations (BFEs)
revise the FIRM for the commu-
nity.
The changes are being made
pursuant to Section 206 of the
Flood Disaster Protection Act
of 1973 (Public Law 93-234)
and are in accordance with the
National Flood Insurance Act of
1968, as amended (Title XIII of
the Housing and Urban Devel-
opment Act of 1968, Public
Law 90-448), 42 U.S.C. 4001-

Under the above-mentioned
Acts of 1968 and 1973, the
Mitigation Division must de-
velop criteria for floodplain
management. To participate in
the National Flood Insurance
Program (NFIP), the community
must use the modified BFEs to
administer the floodplain man-
agement measures of the NFIP.
These modified BFEs will also
be used to calculate the appro-
priate flood insurance premium
rates for new buildings and
their contents and for the sec-
ond layer of insurance on exist-
ing buildings and contents.
Upon the second publication
of notice of these changes in
this newspaper, any person has
90 days in which he or she can
request, through the Chief Ex-
ecutive Officer of the commu-

eration must be based on
knowledge of changed condi-
tions or new scientific or tech-

are on notice that until the 90-
day period elapses, the Mitiga-
Stion Division's determination to
modify the BFEs may itself be

Walking Offers Good Exercise


Walking lowers the risk for
-cancer, diabetes, heart disease
and stroke, boosts brain power
.and helps to lose weight.
With warmer weather here,
there is no better time to start
walking.
Tops Club, Inc., members are
encouraged to eat less and exer-
cise more.
Walking is one of the easiest
ways to achieve the exercise
goal, and to work exercise into a
busy day.
"Walking uses large muscle
groups that are essential for fit-
ness," Anne Ruelle, advisor to
Tops and registered dietitian,
said. "Walking at speeds of four
to five miles per hour can burn
about 100 calories or more per
mile. And walking has the low-
est drop-out rate of almost all
other forms of exercise."
To lose weight, Tops recom-
mends that members walk

Medicare seminars next week.
Norma A. Lanier, state out-

sent information regarding the
new Medicare-approved Drug
Discount Cards and the upcom-
ing Medicare Part D Drug Bene-
fit that will be available in 2006.
"The new Medicare prescrip-

prescription drugs, and those
who can least afford to pay will
get the most help. Seniors who
lack coverage today will be able
to cut their drug bills roughly in
half for a modest monthly pre-

Cats from the Hemingway house have their

the name, most of which come from show busi-

This six-toed cat, trained to pose for
tourists, is named Amadea, presumably the
feminine form of Amadeas. She.is the daugh-
ter of a cat named Mozart, as in Wolfgang

Hemingway wrote. It is in a separate building

Royal typewriter, which he once said mis-
spelled more words than any other brand.

11 Musings From God's Penman


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
The Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage and Yours Truly have
lived in parsonages most of our
married life.
Believe me when I say it has
truly been a romantic adventure
of the highest order.
If the saying is true, "mar-
riages are made in heaven," then
I believe parsonages have the
same architect.
My good wife, as opposed to my
bad wife (and she is), defines the
parsonage as the place where the
parson ages "like a good
cheese," I always add, at least
under my breath.
I don't know where she gets
her wisdom, but for some inex-
plicable reason I, the parson,
have been aging. Why the par-
son's wife never ages is one of the
glorious mysteries of parsonage
life. (I just threw that last line in
for you know who.)
Normally and when I say
normally I mean for the most
part, and when I say for the most
part I mean as a general rule, and
when I say as a general rule I
mean normally life in the par-
sonage is as blissful and serene as
two lovebirds in their' treetop
nest. As far as I am concerned, no
living quite compares to life in the
parsonage.
However, and I'm quite reti-
cent to bring up the subject, not
all has been harmonious in the
kingdom lately.
I point no finger for fear of a
broken arm, but the Mrs. has


Bartow Deacons & Stewards
Alliance will hold its annual
scholarship banquet Saturday,
June 25, at 7 p.m., at Carver
Recreation Center, 520 Idlewood
Drive, Bartow.
The banquet theme is
"Champions Giving Back."
Speaker for the evening is Rev.
G.I. Bradley.
The banquet is a fundraising
activity that provides scholar-
ships for underprivileged youth.
Businesses may support the
cause by purchasing a sponsor-
ship package or by purchasing an
advertisement in the souvenir


taken on a rather scrappy deport-
ment. Where this indisposition
has come from cannot be found in
any medical dictionary I have
recently consulted.
I am only glad the children this
woman has borne are not at home
still to see this latest develop-
ment. It completely defies all
explanation.
I became aware of the situa-
tion just a few days ago. My wife
and I had finished the duties of
the day, supper was neatly tucked
away, and we were relaxing
before the television set with our
evening coffee.
By all outward appearances, it
seemed like an ordinary evening
in the parsonage.
I look forward to these infor-
mal, relaxing evenings at home -
a time we can share together in
the comfort of our domicile
reflecting on the activities of the
day and the hopes of tomorrow.
Unfortunately, these times are
all too rare for my comfort.
We were watching some pro-
gram on television, I don't
remember what it was now, when
the Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage made what I thought
to be a casual remark.
"Honey," as a seasoned hus-
band I should know this is the
beginning of a sentence designed
to throw me off guard. However, I
was not thinking those thoughts
at the time and, as time would
tell, was completely vulnerable.
"Honey, I got a box of your
favorite ice cream. It's in the
freezer, why don't you go and get


booklet.
The cost of a table for eight is
$160.

additional information, call

yourself a nice bowl of ice cream
while we're watching TV."
I don't know what planet you
are from, but the mere mention of
ice cream throws me completely
off my orbit. With nothing but ice
cream on my mind and eyes
slightly glazed, I arose from my
recliner and zombied for the
refrigerator.
She was right. It was my
favorite ice cream, chocolate. Of
course, I have yet to met an ice
cream flavor I don't like.
As I headed back for the living
room and my recliner, I sensed
something wrong. I guess I'm just
gifted that way. When something
is wrong I sense it.
Two problems are associated
with this gift of mine. One, I
never know exactly what is
wrong, hence the befuddled look
on my face. And two, I rarely
know how to fix it.
As I situated myself in my
recliner, balancing my bowl of
chocolate ice cream in one hand
and reaching for the remote with
the other hand, I detected some-
thing wrong. The remote was not
where I had left it.
Looking at the television
screen, I also noticed it had been
changed and I did not change it.
What I saw on the screen
shocked me back to reality. The
TV had been changed to the
HGTV Network, and I am an
A&E Network viewer.
This was where the problem
started. Being the gentlemen I
am, I did not demand the remote.
When God created the remote
control He said, "Let it be under


the Dominion of man."
And so it should be. Who am I
to argue with Divine predestina-
tion?
Any suggestion I made about
returning the remote to its right-
ful owner was greeted with, "Oh,
look what they're doing now."
And, of course, I had to look.
Another ominous suggestion
brought, "How do you suppose
they do that?"
And, of course, I had to sup-
pose.
Thus, I spent the rest of the
evening.
It is not important that a
house, any house, be divided. The
importance comes in what is
dividing that house.
Jesus put it this way, "But he,
knowing their thoughts, said unto
them, Every kingdom divided
against itself is brought to desola-
tion; and a house divided against
a house falleth" (Luke 11:17
KJV).
The only way to keep a house
from becoming divided over the
wrong thing is to maintain what I
call a biblical house.
David the Psalmist knew this
only too well.
He wrote, "Except the Lord
build the house, they labour in
vain that build it: except the Lord
keep the city, the watchman
waketh but in vain"
(Psalms 127:1 KJV).
My wife and I try to keep a
mathematical house. If the divi-
sion is balanced, and the right
things subtracted, it can add up
to a blissful lifestyle.

Ask and You Will Receive
No one is completely immune to the problems and difficul-
ties of the world, and the pressure and stress that we all
encounter when dealing with difficult situations can at times
seem insurmountable. Therefore, it is hard to understand
how anyone could possibly be at peace with themselves and
their loved ones without being mindful of our Heavenly
Father. In the Bible, Jesus tells His disciples,"I have told you
these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world
you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the
world." (John 16:33) Jesus is telling us in this verse that even
in our daily tribulations we can have peace by knowing that
all things work for the good of those who love the Lord. Jesus
also tells His disciples, "until now you have not asked for any-
thing in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will
be complete." (John 16:24) Fortunately, we don't have to face
our difficulties alone because we have a God that loves and
cares about each of us; however, we have to step out in faith
and ask God for His help. We then must have faith (even that
of a mustard seed), and trust that God wants what is best for
us. Frequent prayer and reading God's word are necessary for
our peace of mind and for building a lasting relationship with
Him.


If you remain in me and my words remain in
you, ask whatever you wish and it will be given
to you.

Reflections


On Faith


Finding Life's Silver Lining


By ROGER CAMPBELL

"Look for the silver lining,"
advises an old song, adding,
"There's a silver lining behind
every cloud you see."'
S Is this true?
One struggling -LUt'I've' said if
ill" l6cdd'd aire supposed to have
silver linings some of his clouds
" must be defective.
Is there really a reason to
expect good things to develop out
of our trials?
oo 1e writing his best-selling
book, "Strength of Soul." Phillip
Keller became so convinced that
positive things can develop out of
negative situations that he wrote:
"There'is a silver edge to life! The
tapestry of our lives is embroi-
dered with blessings. .AllM is not
dark. Our part is to search for the
silver lining.'" .. ..-..
According t6' Keller, 'who suf-
fered more t.han his share of dark
clouds, this search calls for a cer-
tain' degree of self-discipline in
vihich 'a deliberate decision -is
made to lbok -f6f life's silver edge.
He says it entails ultivtivating a
close ,personal communion" with
Christ.on (te path of life and
demands: a calm, sure faith of
quiet repose in our.Father's care,
causing fresl hope to spring up
Withinithe sufferer's soul.
In other words,. the. silver lin-
ing .is produced by the sun shin-,
ing on; the dark clouds from above
..and discovering the silver lining
depends, on how high we look.
SIn,, a ..time; of trouble, the
Psalmist said he would, lift up his
eyes to the hills from where his
hel would come, but then
exp gained the source of his help
-was' higher' than the hills: "My
help comes from the Lord, who-
made heaven and earth" (Psalm"
121:1-2). ..
Faith "bring 'a 'divine dimen-
sion to our difficulties.. .
Inevyer, problem, faith sees an


opportunity for God to show His
love and develop us into what He
wants us to be.
When Enoch Olson was a
senior in high school, he received
a scholarship to attend Michigan
'State University where he
Planned t6 study 'cn,-r -ii .: ii,
He dreamed of spending his life
tending streams, lakes, and
forests.
Then one day dark clouds
rolled in.
Enoch's father was stricken
with tuberculosis and told he
would have to be treated in a
sanatorium for an extended peri-
od of time. This meant the would-
be conservationist must cancel
his college plans in order to stay
home and care for his family...
Broken dreams are often hard
*to handle and Enoch was deeply
disappointed 'with this turn of
'events. He couldn't understand
.why his father had become so ill
and chafed under this intrusion
on his vision of a future in con-
servation.
But there's more to this story.
While rising to the needs of his
family during 'his father's illness,
Enoch made a life changing deci-
sion. After his father's recovery,
he would enter the ministry.
This ultimately led him to
establish a family camp covering
hundreds of acres and containing
streams, lakes, and flourishing'
forests a conservation wonder-
land with a higher purpose than
he had originally i imagined.
There was a silver lining to
Olsen's clouds, even though it
was almost invisible, at first sight.
To quote Keller again:
'Searching for the silver lining,
more often than not, entails
,searching our own souls. It is the
capacity, the ability, to actually
'look for the hand of God in all the
events of life, be they good or evil,
that enables us to find the silver
edge."

The express train to
Manchester, England, left the
station, on time, but. it stopped
five miles down the track.
The engine wasn't coupled
onto the cars. ,
Your faith is like the coupling
that links the cars to the engine.
It's not the coupling that pulls the
cars, but the engine.
And it's not your faith that
saves, but the Christ in whom
your faith is placed. '
Everyone has faith, but not
everyone has faith in Christ.
That's why everyone doesn't
have heaven in their hearts here,
and. why, their hearts won't be in
heaven hereafter.
Christ is absolutely necessary
and positively sufficient.
So have faith in Christ, won't
you?

'In Cadet Chapel at West Point,
you'll find the shields of great
American soldiers.
On each one, you'll find their
names.
But there's one shield that's
different. It has the date of birth
and of death, but no name. It's
the shield of Benedict Arnold.
He once was a great leader.
But he denied his country, and
his country denied him.
Our Lord said, ."Whosoever
shall confess Me before men, him
will I confess also before My.
Father who is in heaven. But,
whosoever shall deny Me before
men, him will I also deny before
My Father who is in heaven."

Years ago some experts were
sent to Australia to explore the
possibilities of gold being found
there.
They released a lengthy bul-
letin that gold was fina certain
section, but no one was interest-
ed.
One day, some shepherds came
to town with gold.
* "Where did you find it?"
begged the people.
"Upcountry," they replied.
And the gold rush was on.


Our talking about the gospel
treasure doesn't always cause
others to search for it. But if they
see the gospel nuggets in our
lives, .they'll want it.
Every Christian should stand
out like a piece of gold against a
rough background.
Do you make others want to
become a Christian by the life you
live?'.

,A camel, says an Arab fable,
came to the'door of a tent and
thrust in his feet.
There was no resistance then,
so he came halfway in. Not being
,resisted at all, he, came all the
way in.
"The tent's too small for the
two of us," complained the Arab.
"Then you get out!" cried the
camel.
Sin comes into your heart as a
guest. If you don't resist it, you
encourage it to come in farther.
Soon it becomes your master, and
it takes full possession.
Wouldn't you rather have the
Savior in your heart than sin?
Then say "no" to sin and "yes"
to the Savior now, won't you?

A man had been an awful sin-
ner.
He wanted to do'what's right,
but he couldn't. No matter which
way he turned, he couldn't make
himself do right.
One day a friend said to him,
"God challenges you to trust Him,
and if He doesn't make you good,
you can quit."
"I'll trust Him," he said; and he
became a brand new person.
A neighbor said to him, "Wow
- what a change! How did you
get victory over the devil?"
."I've got the Victor over the
devil living in my heart," he
answered.
Are you fighting a losing battle
with Satan and sin? Do you want
victory?
It's not in trying, but trusting;
not in self, but the Savior.
Trust Him now, won't you?

Loyal Frisbie


Loyal Frisbie Preaches

At Holy Trinity Church


Loyal Frisbie, V, returned to
Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in
Bartow on Father's Day to be.the
guest speaker and deliver the ser-
mons at both the 8 and 10:30 a.m.
worship services.
In honor of Father's Day, his
theme was "God as a Loving
Father."
Frisbie is enrolled in the
Reformed Theological Seminary,
and is beginning his studies at
the RTS campus in Orlando. His
intent is to earn a nondenomina-
tional ordination.
He was born in Bartow and
was baptized, confirmed, and
raised in Holy Trinity Episcopal
Church. He graduated from
Bartow High School, attended
Valencia Community College in
Orlando for one year, then trans-
ferred to Polk Community
College, from which he earned his
AA degree. He entered the
University of Florida as a junior,
and graduated with a degree in
advertising.
While in high school, he
formed a. rock band, and contin-
ued that interest through college
and beyond, writing the band's
songs, performing as lead singer,
and playing guitar. After going
through a succession of names,
the band, which ended up calling
itself simply Loyal Frisby, won a
"Battle of the Bands" in
Gainesville. They made several
tapes and CDs, and performed on
tours as far away as Texas and
New York.
The band disbanded when
Frisbie realized that it was not
God's plan for him to be a rock
musician for the rest of his life, he
said.
In his words, Frisbie told his
fellow band members that the
time to disband "is while we still
love each other."
For five years, he was full-time
director of praise ministry at
First Lutheran Church of
Gainesville. In that capacity, he
was responsible for a contempo-
rary worship service (for which
he also wrote music and directed
a musical Praise Team) and per-


formed such administrative
duties as preparing weekly ser-
vice bulletins and the monthly
newsletter.
Several years ago, he began
dating Julie Knudsen of
Longwood, and they were mar-
ried on Aug. 14, 2004, at
Kanapaha Botanical Gardens in
Gainesville.
Feeling a call to ordained min-
istry, he enrolled in Reformed
Theological Seminary. His wife,
who has a degree in psychology,
has enrolled in a "fast track"
registered nurse program at the
University of Central Florida,
and expects to earn her BSN
degree in 15 months. They have
purchased a home in Sanford.
Before they were married, Ms.
Knudsen made a trip to the
African nation of Malawi, where
she pursued her interest in AIDS
prevention and counseling. A few
months after their marriage, she
made a return trip, this time
accompanied by her husband, to
visit some of the families she had
befriended. On this trip, Frisbie
preached a sermon at a small
Baptist church in the town of
Balaka.
The loose offerings and desig-
nated gifts from the June 19 ser-
vices at Holy Trinity are being
forwarded to some of Frisbie's
contacts in Malawi for use in min-
istry and relief.
Frisbie is the son of Mary and
S. L. Frisbie, IV.
"It is so wonderful to have a
fine young man, like Loyal, who
grew up in our church, choosing
the ministry for hip life's work,"
said The Rev. Dr. Wallace
Reynolds, rector of Holy Trinity.
"We are pleased to have him
return home and speak. The
entire Frisbie family have been
valued members of our parish for
many years."
Holy Trinity Episcopal Church
is located at 500 West Stuart St.

church office at 533-3581, from 9
a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through
Friday, or visit the church's web-

Bisquick: As Good in the '50s As Today


If "Impossible Pie" and biscuits
are the only things that come to
mind when you hear the word,
"Bisquick," you're missing out on
some delicious dishes that are
made easier by that magic ingre-
dient.
Bisquick has been around
since 1930, and today there are a
reduced fat version and five fla-
vors of Bisquick Complete biscuit
mix.
In 1930, a General Mills sales
executive, Carl Smith, was
returning to San Francisco by
train, and arrived in the dining
car too late to order. However, he
was served a plate of "delicious,
oven-hot biscuits only moments
after he sat down," according to
the brand's history on the General
Mills website.
Smith went to the galley and
talked to the chef, who showed
him his secret for making fresh
baked biscuits. The chef blended
lard, flour, baking powder and
salt and stored the mix in an ice
chest. Smith took the idea to
Charlie Kress, head chemist of
General Mills' Sperry division.
With great secrecy, General
Mills tested blends of ingredients,
concerned that other companies
would soon be marketing biscuit
mixes. Bisquick was first on the
market, but just months after its
national release, 96 biscuit mixes
were on the market. Only six sur-
vived into the next year.
Promotions in the '30s included
a baking pan given with purchase
of the product. Child star Shirley
Temple's image was featured on a
small mug, pitcher and bowl.
While Bisquick was first pro-
moted as biscuit mix, recipes were
soon developed for a variety of
other foods. In the 1960s, a new
Bisquick formula added more
shortening, a new leavening sys-
tem and buttermilk.
In the mid-1950s, advertising
proclaimed that Bisquick was "A
World of Baking in a Box." The
1956 cookbook pictured here is a
perfect place to start with some
recipe ideas you might not find
elsewhere, but others are still
seen on the product boxes and the
website. Since Bisquick, and
other ingredients, may be slightly
different than 50 years ago, your
results may be a little different,
too, so just experiment. You'll also
notice that these recipes pre-date
our cholesterol and fat concerns.

From "Betty Crocker's Bisquick
Cookbook," 1956:

Bisquick Noodles
A new easier way to make real
homemade noodles.
Work 1 cup Bisquick into 1 egg,
beaten. Roll and stretch dough to
paper thinness. Cut into 1-1/2"
squares or regular noodle strips.

(mod.). Blend all together. Beat 30
seconds, until well blended. Pour
into well greased, waxed paper-
lined 9x5x2-1/2" loaf pan. Bake 1
hr. When serving cold, slice thin.


Biscuits
Heat oven to 450 degrees (hot).
Add 2/3 cup milk all at once to
2 cups Bisquick. Stir with fork

be stiff and sticky. Roll dough
around on cloth-covered board
lightly dusted with Bisquick to
prevent sticking. Knead gently 8

in size in baking. Dip cutter in
Bisquick. Cut close together to
save rerolling.

ing sheet 10 to 15 minutes; close
together for soft sides, 1" apart for
crusty sides. Makes 12 2" biscuits.


Fruit Shortcake


Add 3/4 cup cream (or 1/2 cup
milk plus 1/4 cup melted butter),
to 2 cups Bisquick. Add 2 tbsp.

shortcakes.


Butter Sticks
Different and delicious.
Make biscuit dough (above).

into 12 strips. Melt 1/3 cup butter;
pour half of it into 13x9-1/2x2"

Tips from the kitchens
Do-Ahead Tip: Make bread
bowls a day ahead, and carefully
wrap and store them in a cool, dry
place. Before serving, warm bread
bowls slightly by covering and
microwaving 15 to 30 seconds.
Special Touch: Replace crou-
tons with toasted almonds, and
serve the salad with a side of' red
grapes for added elegance.
Variation: Once you get the
hang of these bread owls, you'll
want to serve them all of the time.


You can fill them with any of your
favorite salads. They also make
great bowls for chili, soups and
stews!
Substitution: When the weath-
er outside is frightful, chicken can
be broiled instead of grilled. Or
just buy a roast chicken from the
deli to get the chicken you need
for the salads.
