IT'S OPEN Main Street has reopened to traffic and only one
block of Wilson remains closed as demolition continues on two build-
ings which burned in the 200 block on June 6. This morning most of
the old Ritz Theatre was in a file of rubble and twisted metal (above).
On Friday most of the building was still standing (below). Antol
Restoration, based in Boca Raton, is in charge of the demolition. Th"


company also restores and constructs buildings. Main Street mer-
chants will have it a little easier now with the street open. Work con-
tinues on the streetscaping (right), as a worker with Nelson
Construction takes a moment to check on the demolition progress
Friday. (Staff photos by Peggy Kehoe)

Bartow city commissioners
voted unanimously Monday to
impose a $45 per year stormwa-
ter fee to pay for improvements
to the city's storm drainage sys-
tem, effective in October.
Two people spoke in opposition
to the new tax at a public hear-
ing.
Commissioners made one last
.minute change to the ordinance,
deleting a provision that would
have increased the tax each year
by the rate of inflation. They said
they may review the tax levy
annually, but struck the auto-
matic increase.
With Mayor Leo Longworth
and Commissioner Pat Huff out
of town, Vice-Mayor Rosie
Thornburg presided. She and
Commissioners Brian Hinton
and Andy Laurent voted to
impose the fee, which will be
billed on tax bills that go into the
mail in October.
Owners of mobile homes and
apartments will pay $33.75 per
unit.
The '$5 fee is for an
"Equivalent Residential Unit," or
ERU.
Chastain-Skillman, Inc., the
city's consulting firm, computed
that the average Bartow single-
family home has 2,525 square
feet of impervious surface, which
is surface through which water
will not pass. That figure, 2,525
square feet, is designated as an
ERU. Commercial property will

be assessed based on that num-
ber.
Businesses will pay the fee
based on the amount of impervi-
ous surface (buildings and paved
parking lots). A commercial prop-
erty with 5,050 square feet of
impervious surface, or two ERUs,
will pay $90.
Owners of vacant land will
pay $11.25 for parcels of up to 25
acres, $22.50 for parcels from 25
to 50 acres, and $45 for parcels of
more than 50 acres.
Owners of property with
approved storm retention basins
will get a discount of 25 to 75 per-
cent, depending on the capacity
of their retention systems.
Although called a "user fee"
and not a tax, the fee will be col-

Polk County commissioners
have approved spending $250,000
to begin planning for new or
expanded parks and recreation
facilities to be funded by a new ad
valorem tax on property in unin-
corporated areas of the county.
The amount of the tax will be
decided on July 27; a levy of
three-quarters of a mill has been
discussed by county officials.
Don W. Wilson, county leisure
services director, requested allo-
cation of planning funds for pro-
jects to be funded by the new
Municipal Services Taxing Unit
for parks and recreation.
Possible projects, he said,
include:
Purchasing land for a Four
Corners Regional Park in north-


assessed on government-owned
property, churches, and other
entities exempt from ad valorem
property taxes.
It is projected to raise
$639,700 next year, and revenues
will rise each year as more homes
and commercial buildings are
built.
The four largest sources of the
new tax will be residential prop-
.erty (35.8 percent), government
property (21.8 percent), commer-
cial property (21.5 percent), and
industrial property (10.7 per-
cent).
Other categories are miscella-
neous (5.6 percent), institutional
(4.0 percent), and agricultural
(0.6 percent).

Polk Vision 1


County Tax ]


The steering committee of
.Polk Vision, Inc., has endorsed
the action of the Polk County
commission in increasing several
taxes to pay for infrastructure.
, Closing what county officials
$;all a $600 million "infrastruc-
ture gap" is one of the priorities
et by Polk Vision in a plan that
ivyas developed in 2004 with the
participation of more than 5,000
residents from across Polk
County.
' "An integral component of
their shared vision of Polk Coun-
tys future was the need to elimi-
sate the infrastructure deficit
withinn Polk County and expect
4ew growth to pay for the addi-
tonal infrastructure needs it
creates," Colleen Burton, execu-
tive director of Polk Vision, said

Medicare
Seminars Set

:' Congressman Adam H. Put-
ilam (FL-12) will hold a series of
Medicare 'seminars next week.
Norma A.. Lanier, state out-
reach coordinator for First Coast

sent information regarding the
netv Medicare-approved Drug
Discount Cards: and the upcom-
ing Medicare Part D Drug Bene-
fit that will be available in 2006.
S"The new Medicare prescrip-
tion drug benefit will help sen-
ifrs in Florida pay for the cost of
lirescription drugs, and those
iho can least afford to pay will
get the most help. Seniors who
lIck coverage today will be able
to cut their drug bills roughly in
lalf for a modest monthly pre-
mium," Putnam said.
,- A local seminar is set Thurs-
day, June 30, at 10 a.m. at the

in a press release.
"The estimated $600 million
infrastructure deficit has a di-
rect impact on education, eco-
nomic development, infrastruc-
ture, and quality of life strate-
'gies. If Polk County is to reverse
the downward trend of our tax-
able values as a percentage of
Florida's taxable values, reverse
the trend of becoming a bedroom
community heavily dependent on
residential tax revenues, in-
crease the per capital income of
its residents, increase job
growth, and improve education
and its measurable outcomes,
the board of county commission-
ers must take the necessary
measures to eliminate the infra-
structure deficit and ensure that
new residential and business
growth pays for both initial cost
of infrastructure and annual op-
erating costs.
"The commission's recent ac-
tions increasing the public serv-


ice tax, adopting Municipal Serv-
ices Taxing Unit ordinances for
parks/recreation and libraries,
and considering an increase of
the county-wide ad valorem tax,
support strategies within the
Polk Vision document.
"Therefore, the Polk Vision
steering committee expresses its
support for the commission and
its efforts to eliminate the infra-
structure deficit as well as fu-
ture actions, to include adoption
of appropriate county impact
fees, they may take to ensure
that new growth pays for the in-
frastructure needs it creates.
"The future of Polk County
and the successful implementa-
tion of our vision for our future
rely heavily on thd actions of the
commissioners but also on the
active participation of residents
and organizations from across
the county as we create a pre-
miere place to live, learn, work
and play for years to come."

"Florida received help from
more than 35 states during the
unprecedented 2004 hurricane
season," said.Gov. Bush. "We are
all too glad to return the favor
and help out the citizens of Cali-
fornia."
The FDOT team is scheduled
to arrive in California on Mon-
day, June 27, for a 60-day de-
ployment.
The state-trained personnel
will work together with Califor-
nia state officials and staff from
the Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA) to process
the Public Assistance, or govern-
ment infrastructure, claims as a
result of the landslides in the


southern part of the state.
"Emergency management per-
sonnel in our department be-
came quick experts in Public As-
sistance work as a result of last
year's storms," FDOT Secretary
Jos6 Abreu said. "We also know
first hand how difficult it is to
rebuild after nature's devasta-
tion. We look forward to doing
anything we can to help Califor-
nia."
The original request was coor-
dinated through the Florida
State Emergency Response
Team (SERT) and the Division of-
Emergency Management (DEM)
staff. In 2004, more than 725
emergency management and
first responders from the U.S.
assisted in Florida's hurricane
response and recovery efforts.

THINKING OUT LOUD / By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
So Much for Property Rights


Editorial

0 D 4W. a 0 1 0 b"%A


When it comes to emotional
reaction to Supreme Court deci-
sions, the strongest reactions are
reserved for such topics as flag
desecration (see accompanying
comment), abortion, school
prayer, and nude dancing.
These are issues deeply seated
in beliefs about religion and
morality.
In my opinion, last week's
* decision on property rights or
* the lack of .property rights is
more offensive than those relat-
ing to the other topics listed.
It is a long-established princi-
ple that government, represent-
ing the Will of the People, can
take private property for a legiti-
mate public purpose. Typical are
condemnation for schools, high-
ways or other uses vital to the
public interest. Government offi-
cials are fond of complaining


about the cost involved, but I
have no problem with it.
If you own a piece of property,
it is not your fault if government
decides later that it wants it. Sure,
unfairness takes place, but when
you purchase a piece of property,
you do so in the belief that you
own it, and will continue to own
it until you decide to dispose of it.
If government wants to take it
from you for a legitimate public
purpose, let government pay a
price fixed by a jury of your
peers.
Don't blame government;
blame your peers.
A number of years ago, some
of my neighbors asked me to
oppose expansion of school
board offices virtually up to our
back yards.
I declined.
I checked the local building


code, determined that the school
board was within its rights to
come up to my back yard, and I
blamed only myself for failing to
try to buy a buffer years earlier.
I wasn't keen on the location of
the buildings, but I had no basis
to try to block the owner from
lawful use of its property. (And in
retrospect, the school board is a
pretty good neighbor.)
That principle applies,
whether it's before the United
States Supreme Court or in my
back yard.
But the principle at issue is
Public Purpose.
If local government needs my
property for a new location for
city hall, or an electric power sub-
station, or some other govern-
mental purpose, that is one thing.
If local government thinks my
property would be better suited


as a shopping center or an apart-
ment complex, that is something
else entirely.
Let them meet my asking price
or take a hike.
It is not my responsibility to
give up my property for commer-
cial development.
That is my opinion.
By a vote of 5-to-4, that is not
the opinion of the United States
Supreme Court.
The Court has decided that if
government wants my property
so it can sell it for commercial
development, I am out of luck.
It is a reprehensible ruling.
Right is right, wrong is wrong.
This is wrong.
Unfortunately, only four of the
nine justices of the Supreme
Court agree with me.

Our Flag Does Not Need


Constitutional Protection

L 416 '


There are a lot of things in life that are
discourteous, rude, or downright dis-
gusting.
Most of them are not illegal, nor
should they be.
If every discourteous, rude, or down-
right disgusting person were put behind
bars, there wouldn't be enough of us left
on the outside to pay the taxes to sup-
port the jails and prisons.
In a populist move timed for the
approaching Fourth of July celebration,
the House of Representatives has voted
to place an amendment banning "physi-
cal desecration of the flag of the United
States" in the United States
Constitution.
The Senate is believed to be within a
vote or two of approving the same
amendment. Then it would go to the
Legislatures of the 50 states, where it
undoubtedly would be passed, because
any lawmaker who votes against it will
be accused of being unAmerican in the
next election.
Baloney!
The United States of America is strong
enough to stand up against a lot of chal-
lenges, including people who don't
salute its flag.
America is not a piece of cloth; it is a
nation of 200 million or so people who
believe in the Constitution and the Bill
of Rights, the latter of which protects the
rights of those who dissent, even when
their dissent is discourteous, rude, or
downright disgusting.
America is not threatened by that
minuscule number of Americans who
disrespect its flag; it is strengthened by
the vast majority who respect it.


LAKELAND -I submit that
the vast majority of Republicans
who believe in the six principals
of conservative governance,
which are less government, lower
taxes, personal responsibility,
individual freedom, stronger
families, and domestic tranquility
and national defense, have been
betrayed by four of our five
Republican-in-name-only county
commissioners who ignore the
first two principles and have
greatly weakened the other four.
I further submit that the vast


The issue is not whether those
choose to disrespect our flag are jerk
our opinion, they are.
The issue is whether those
choose to disrespect our flag are ci
nals.
In the case of Dallas vs. John
which stemmed from a protest at
1984 Republican National Conventic
Dallas, -the Supreme Court ruled
burning the flag was not a crime.
At present, the only crime define
the Constitution is treason.
Founding Fathers, sensitive to Br
law on that subject, defined it, not
but twice, in the Constitution.
Objectionable behavior is not treat
nor is it unConstitutional.
America is no more threatened
burning of flags than God is threat
by the banning of recitation of a pr
at the start of the school day.
God will survive; the spirit of Am(
will survive.
Neither needs the blessings of
United States Constitution.

majority of those who elected

against the Republican principle
- that workers should keep
more of their hard-earned money
which stimulates the economy.
This principal called elemen-
tary economics by rise and sub-
terfuge is being cast aside in King
George III fashion and the door
has been slammed shut in the
faces of common taxpayers.
I quote Herman Cain, chair-


man of the Media Research
Center's free market project:
"They think you are stupid. Why
Democrats lost your vote and
what Republicans must do to
keep it." Then quote Zel Miller:
"Herman Cain writes: "They
Don't Get It." I think he should
add to that: "And They're Gonna
Get It." Politicians who don't care
for their constituents are going to
be tossed out on their ears."

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS
A Bad Weekend


Our Although S.L. doesn't tell me
ritish what to write, my columns are
once usually light and, hopefully,
humorous. At least, I like to think
they are occasionally fairly amus-
tson, ing.
This column should be posted
I by with a black border somewhere
ened in the back of the paper along
ended with the legal notices.
prayer I don't know why I have been
in such a depressed mood. It
erica could be Newt Gingrich's warn-
ing about the gangs of young
men coming up from Mexico. He
the maintains that the gangs of
young Mexicans crossing our
borders are up to no good. He
says they get together to rape,
loot and pillage.. He foresees
t them taking over the country.


That depressed me, but so does
Newt Gingrich.
And then, they still haven't
found out what happened to
Natalee, the high school student
who went to Aruba on a gradua-
tion outing and disappeared.'
She has been missing for three
weeks. This is a really big news
item.
They even have Geraldo
Rivera covering it. He let his hair
grow out and his mustache has
gone wild.
I did have a rather nice
Saturday afternoon. I went to the
Ladies with the Red Hats meet-
ing at a French restaurant. There
were a lot of them present,
including some from London
who were fun. They laughed and


had a good time talking about
our differences. One nice thing -
I wasn't the oldest lady there. The
minimum age for membership is
50.
I came back home and turned
on the news to see if they had
found Natalee.
They hadn't, but they had
arrested a couple more suspi-
cious men.
I decided the best news was on
Classic TV Movies, so I watched a
couple of movies that took place
long before Natalee Halloway
turned up missing.
One was "The Farmer's
Daughter" with Loretta Young
and Joseph Cotton; the other was
a "Thin Man" film with Myrna
Loy and William Powell. I never


saw so many women in designer
ball gowns and so many men in
their cups.
I was hoping I would run
across a Ma and Pa Kettle movie.
They were my favorites. I hate to
think what Ma Kettle would look
like in the skimpy dresses the
girls wear in the movies today.
I remember when men used to
be heroes. Now I don't know.
what you'd call them. Where are
our heroes today? Out getting tat-
tooed? Singing in a rock band? I
can just picture Harry Truman or
Wallace Beery singing in a rock
band!
There is just too much going
wrong these days. I think I will
climb in bed and find a Shirley
Temple movie on the tube.

Commissioners Violate GOP Principals








June 27, 2005 The Polk County Democrat


Two Promoted At

Cypress Gardens Park


Adventure Parks Group, LLC
has named George Vitello to the
position of vice-president and
general manager of Cypress Gar-
dens Adventure Park effective
immediately.
"In the time he has been with
Adventure Parks Group, George
has demonstrated an exceptional
ability to foster a spirit of team-
work," Kent Buescher,
president/CEO of Adventure
Parks Group, said. "That ability,
combined with his ,extensive
theme park and management ex-
perience, will be a great asset for
the future of Cypress Gardens
Adventure Park, especially in
light of the park's strong
growth."
Vitello will oversee all park
operations, including manage-
ment and the day-to-day activi-
ties of Cypress Gardens Adven-
ture Park.
The move comes at a time
when planned growth and the
success of Cypress Gardens war-
rants an increase of on-site man-
agement.
The park is poised to open
Splash Island water park in
early July, as well as a new
Transportation Services depart-
ment.
The department will oversee
Cypress Cove Ferry Line, the
park's water taxi service and the
Cypress Belle dinner and excur-
sion boat, as well as the park's
tram and bus systems.
"George will be working to-
ward putting together a cohesive
team utilizing our existing em-


ployee base and a planned staff-
ing expansion," Buescher said.
"The goal is to have everyone up
and running in anticipation of a
very strong series of events that
will kick off in September with
Kidzpalooza, our all-new chil-
dren's fun festival. Following
that will be Phobia, the park's
Halloween event and Christmas
Wonderland, a holiday celebra-
tion."
.Vitello transfers from the
group's other park, Wild Adven-
tures Valdosta, LLC, where he
held a position as director of
revenue services.
He joined the park last Sep-
tember after having worked in
the amusement park business
since 1989, including manage-
ment positions at Sea World and
Stone Mountain Park in
Atlanta.
Prior to joining the amuse-
ment park industry, he worked
at Mountain Bell for 18 years.
Cody Fleming has also trans-
ferring from Wild Adventures to
Cypress Gardens, assuming the
position of games manager.
The move is being made in an-
ticipation of Adventure Arcades'
complete opening and staffing
increase.
Fleming worked as a supervi-
sor in the Games department of
Wild Adventures, coming to the
park after previously owning his
own satellite installation service.
Prior to founding his own com-
pany, Fleming worked several
years in retail management.

America's Health Insurance
Plans (AHIP), the industry's top
national trade association, se-
lected Blue Cross and Blue
Shield of Florida (BCBSF) as a
finalist for the AHIP 2005 Com-
munity Leadership Award.
According to AHIP, the award
recognizes health insurance
plans that have "demonstrated
success in identifying and ad-
dressing a community need
through innovation, creativity
and purposeful leadership."
BCBSF's efforts to promote
lasting solutions to ease the
critical nursing shortage in Flor-
ida were commended.
Known as Generation
RN(sm), BCBSF's Nursing and
Allied Health Signature Pro-
gram has successfully increased
public/private partnerships in
nurse education as well as estab-
lished endowments to provide
scholarships to more than 200
nursing students each year in
perpetuity.
Through strategic philan-
thropy the BCBSF initiative lays
a foundation for sustained
growth in nursing into the fu-
ture, when Florida's growing eld-
erly population is anticipated to
increase the need for nurses.
"Realizing the significant im-
pact nurses have on the quality
and availability of health care,
BCBSF is focusing its philan-
thropic investments to generate
more nurses," said Catherine
Kelly, vice-president for public
affairs, BCBSF. "We are hon-


ored that these efforts have re-
ceived recognition by our peers
and hope to continue building co-
operation among our colleagues
in Florida to address the nursing
shortage."
Currently, Florida is experi-
encing a critical shortage of
nurses in hospital settings, one-
in-eight RN positions remaining
vacant.
Workforce projections antici-
pate a continuing shortfall of
nurses an estimated 61,000
by the year 2020 even as the
demand for health care is ex-
pected to rise with an increasing
and aging population.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of
Florida (BCBSF) is a leader in
Florida's health industry.
BCBSF and its subsidiaries
serve more than 6.6 million
Floridians. The company has
been dedicated since 1944 to
meeting the diverse needs of all
those it serves by offering an ar-
ray of choices.
Headquartered in Jackson-
ville, BCBSF is an independent
licensee of the Blue Cross and
Blue Shield Association, an asso-
ciation of independent Blue
Cross and Blue Shield compa-
nies.

STATE REP. JOHN STARGEL (center) was
presented an award for his business-friendly vot-
ing record for the 2005 Legislative session. Bar-
bara Newell, Bartow Chamber of Commerce


president, and Doug Wheeler, Florida Chamber
Federation vice-president of grassroots advocacy,
made the presentation.


Legislative Summary, Awards Given

At Chamber of Commerce Breakfast


Florida Chamber Federation's
Legislative Briefing and Awards
Breakfast was hosted by the
Greater Bartow Chamber of
Commerce Thursday at the Bar-
tow Civic Center.
Nearly 150 attended the
event, which included represen-
tatives from 10 of the 12 Polk
County Chambers of Commerce.
Doug Wheeler, Florida Chamber
vice-president of Grassroots Ad-
vocacy & Political Action Com-
mittee Development, was key-
note speaker. Four Florida legis-
lators, Sen. Paula Dockery, Sen.
J.D. Alexander, Rep. Denise
Grimsley and Rep. John Stargel,
were honored for their business-
friendly voting records.
Wheeler highlighted several
key issues from the 2005 legisla-
tive session:
Constitutional Amendment
Reform (HB 1723)
The Legislature approved a
joint resolution for the Novem-
ber 2006 ballot that if approved
by the voters will require that all
initiatives pass by 60 percent of
the voters. This measure was
consistently supported by more


than 72 percent of Florida voters
in several statewide polls.
"Florida's ballot initiative
process has been hijacked by
special interest groups and fi-
nally the voters will have the
ability to return the initiative
process back to the citizens it.
was designed to serve," Wheeler
said.

Tax Relief Retroactive re-
peal of the Substitute Com-
munications Tax (SB 2070)
A retroactive repeal of the
state's multi-billion dollar sub-
stitute communication tax was
one of the first bills passed by
the House of Representatives
and one of the last bills passed
by the Senate on the final day.
The Legislature finally realized,
Wheeler said, that taxing a busi-
ness's internal communications
was counterproductive to pro-
moting sustained economic de-
velopment and creating new
jobs.

Lawsuit Abuse Reform -
Streetlight Maintenance (HB
135)


Bartow Fire Department

Weekly Summary


The Legislature agreed with
the Florida Chamber's conclu-
sion that exposing utility compa-
nies to lawsuits for accidents
near a streetlight does nothing
to improve safety, but rather
serves to ensure that Florida's
taxpayers will be left holding the
tab. This legislation clarifies the
responsibility a utility owes to
the public for the public benefit
of streetlights.
"The Florida Chamber's Fed-
eration network consisting of
members and local chambers
from around the state once again
contributed significantly to the
Chamber's legislative successes
by generating more than 100,000
grassroots messages to the Leg-
islature," stated Wheeler.
This is the second year in a
row the Greater Bartow Cham-
ber of Commerce hosted the re-
gional briefing, which also was
sponsored both times by Citrus
and Chemical Bank. C&C Bank
CEO George Harris introduced
the speaker.

tact the Bartow Chamber at 533-

Internet Tax Sale Proves Popular


For the first time in county
history, Polk's public tax certifi-
cate sale was conducted entirely
on the Internet.
' And, with more than 7.6 mil-
lion "hits" on the e-Bay style
website, this year's sale was, by
all accounts, a success.
"We couldn't be more pleased
with the overall results of this
sale," Tax Collector Joe Tedder
said, at the conclusion of a three-
day meeting of the Florida Tax
Collector's Association spring
conference.
The annual sale .was con-
ducted on May 31, selling 15,460
tax certificates at a value of
$12.68 million, reported Bid4As-
sets, the online auction firm who
conducted the sale.
This figure represents 96 per-
cent of the total property value
offered, and 78 percent of the to-
'tal parcels, up from 66 percent
last year, a 12 percent increase
in one year.
The remaining 4,565 parcels
that were not bid, totaled
$436,546, and were struck off to
the county.
Every year, in an attempt to
collect unpaid property taxes,
Florida counties auction off thou-
sands of tax certificates. This
year, however, instead of spend-
ing two weeks in a live auction
setting, Tedder and his staff de-
cided to lead a trend that in-
volved "a whole lot less shout-
ing."
In years past. the live auction
drew approximately 125 local
participants and, according to
Asst. Tax Collector Jack Fouts,
"was your typical auction, with
lots of hollering back and forth.


You're trying to figure out who
yelled out the bid first."
Last year was the first time
this online approach was taken
by only four Florida counties.
Throughout the process, Lien-
Pro, Bid4Asset's online service
also was able to provide valuable
statistical analysis unique to
each county.
Those statistics reported a
field of potential bidders from 37
states throughout the country,
registering 1,619 unique partici-
pants with more than 1,350 ac-
tual depositors.
In November of 2004, Mana-

tron, a national leader in special-
ized tax software, and provider
to the local tax office, announced
a partnership with Bid4Assets,
to deliver Internet tax sale func-
tionality to the Florida market.
They conducted sales for
seven of the 22 counties which
held Internet sales this year.
Due to the successes throughout
the state, the industry is project-
ing as many as 40 counties may
be involved next year.
Tedder said the Internet firm
collected a fee for each transac-
tion, but charged the county
nothing.
Yet, the benefit to delinquent
taxpayers was just as favorable,
with 92 percent of the certifi-
cates sold at a .25 percent inter-
est rate.
Auction bidding starts at 18
percent interest and proceeds
downward. This year's average
percentage winning bid rate was
5.50 percent.
"It's a benefit to everyone. We
strike off less parcels to the

Or The Fort Meade Leader

county," Tedder said, "and the
taxpayer benefits because the
more bidders we attract, the
lower the interest rate."
The life of a tax certificate is
seven years. After that, the cer-
tificate becomes null and void.
Tax certificate investors gen-
erally expect delinquent tax ac-
count holders to pay their delin-
quent back taxes plus interest.
If the delinquent account
holder does not pay after two
years, the certificate investor
can assume all the outstanding
real estate property taxes due on
the property in question and ap-
ply for a tax deed.
This allows the property to be
sold at auction where the inves-
tor may recoup some or all of the
return on their investment.
Jack Fouts, a 33-year em-
ployee with the tax office, remi-
nisced that the live auction tra-
ditionally ties up at least 10 em-
ployees for two weeks.
This year, that labor-intensive
period lasted just one day and
required only a few staff mem-
bers, he said.

Florida's Chief Financial Offi-
cer Tom Gallagher released the
Department of Financial Serv-
ices' annual Top 10 Fraud List,
which summarizes 10 of the cost-
liest or boldest securities, finan-
cial and insurance fraud scams
that resulted in arrests or con-
victions by the Division of Insur-
ance Fraud during the fiscal
year that began July 1, 2004,
and ends June 30, 2005.
"Fraud schemes are becoming
more complex and more costly,
and the cost is passed on to
every consumer in higher insur-
ance premiums and higher costs
for goods and services," said Gal-
lagher, who oversees the depart-
ment. "But working together, we
can fight back against these
criminals and hit back hard. The
most important thing consumers
can do is verify before they buy."
This year's Top 10 fraud
schemes ranged from title insur-
ance trickery to the perennial
list maker, Personal Injury Pro-
tection auto insurance fraud, or
PIP fraud.
On the list is one PIP fraud
case in which eight individuals
posed as journalists to gain ac-
cess to police accident reports in
order to solicit crash victims to
go to unscrupulous medical clin-
ics.
In another, more than two
dozen individuals were arrested
in a complex scheme that in-
volved staging crashes in order
to create "patients" for fraudu-
lent medical clinics.
The ringleader is suspected of
staging more than 90 auto
crashes. The 10 cases, listed in
no particular order, add up to
more than $2.7 million in finan-
cial losses. Additional potential
losses in these 10 cases losses
that may have occurred if an ar-
rest had not been made when it
was add up to more than $1
million.
The department has a num-
ber of online resources, including
a "Verify Before You Buy" page


2004.
RIVIERA BEACH A man
who sold fake motor vehicle in-
surance cards to nearly 200
South Florida drivers was sen-
tenced to three years in prison.
Howard M. McKinon, 58, of 481
W. 30th St., pleaded guilty to
nine counts of marketing a false
or fraudulent motor vehicle in-
surance card and one count of or-
ganized scheme to defraud.
State fraud investigators de-
termined that McKinon issued at
least 196 cards, most of them to
drivers in West Palm Beach and


that includes links that allow
consumers to check the licensure
status of an insurance or finan-
cial services company, broker or
agent; a Senior Resource Center
that specifically addresses con-
cerns and needs of Florida's sen-
ior citizens facing important fi-
nancial decisions; and a "Service
Point" link where consumers can
ask a question or file a complaint
and track the status of their re-
quest.
These resources and more can
be found at www.fldfs.com or by
calling 1-800-342-2762.
Gallagher said that the de-
partment is willing to pay up to
$25,000 for information that di-
rectly leads to an arrest or con-
viction in a fraud scheme.
"That's very likely a whole lot
more than one might make par-
ticipating in one of these
schemes, and we want to award
law-abiding citizens who get in-
volved and help make a differ-
ence."
So far this fiscal year, the de-
partment's Division of Insurance
Fraud has made more than 700
arrests.
Top 10 Cases:
Sarasota An attorney
who continued to work while col-
lecting more than $130,000 in
disability benefits likely won't
get a chance to cash in his fre-
quent flyer miles anytime soon.
Peter W. Martin, 58, faces up
to 15 years in prison after insur-
ance fraud detectives uncovered
that he submitted false informa-
tion on a disability claim. Mar-
tin reported that, following a mo-
tor vehicle accident, he became
partially disabled and that his
condition deteriorated making
him totally disabled in Septem-
ber 2003.
Detectives, however, found
that Martin had continued to
practice law in Florida as well as
in New York while he collected
disability benefits.
CLERMONT- A title agent
accused of stealing more than
$1.1 million in customer escrow
funds took the money along
with her boyfriend and cowork-
ers on a Las Vegas junket, but
didn't bet on getting caught.
Kathryn Knight, 37, also
known as Kathryn Weed, was
.operating Weed & Associates Ti-
tle Services when American Pio-
neer Title Insurance Company
conducted an audit and discov-
ered discrepancies in Weed &
Associates' escrow account.
Fraud detectives determined
that Knight misappropriated in
excess of $1.1 million from the
escrow account and used these
funds to buy vehicles, the Las
Vegas getaway and make a down
payment on a $9 million Lake
County land purchase.
Her title agent license was
immediately revoked and she
faces up to 60 years in prison if
convicted on the charges.
PLANTATION Eight in-
dividuals who illegally obtained
traffic accident reports from po-
lice departments throughout
Palm Beach, Broward and Dade
counties posed as reporters to
gain access to the reports.
They used the information in
the reports to solicit accident vic-
tims to go to medical clinics and
auto body shops for the purpose
of collecting money on fraudu-
lent auto insurance claims.
They pretended to work for
media publications such as Im-
pact News Weekly, South Flor-
ida Journal and Greek American
Herald.
COCOA BEACH A Bre-
vard County homeowner claimed
that renovation work to his
home was the result of hurricane
damage, but the work had begun
almost a month before the hurri-
cane hit.
Robert Milliken, 60, filed the
fraudulent claim last September
with Citizens Property Insur-
ance Corporation for his home at
423 S. Atlantic Ave., claiming
that Hurricane Frances caused
nearly $60,000 in personal prop-
erty damage.
Detectives, however, deter-
mined that Milliken contracted
with Mack Mosier of Trade Wind
Builders to remodel his resi-
dence, and the work, which in-
volved the removal of all of Mil-
liken's furniture as well as the
roof and windows, began on Aug.
10, 2004.
Hurricane Frances struck the
Treasure Coast on September 5,


fictitious purchase of property.
The lending agent was ad-
vised to wire the money to an
unlicensed broker (Chena
Henry) for the property. Henry
then followed the instructions of
Anthony Phillips and wired the
money to Phillips and Suzanne
Destefano in prescribed
amounts.
Phillips used the stolen
money to purchase property in
which he had an interest in Mi-
ami-Dade County.


Riviera Beach.
The cards appeared to be is-
sued by Progressive Insurance
Company and purported to carry
the minimum statutory levels of
Personal Injury Protection and
Property Damage coverage.
The cards had the same policy
number, with different personal
and vehicle information typed on
them.
MIAMI Fraud detectives
in February arrested 25 indi-
viduals believed to have been in-
volved in a ring that staged at
least a dozen auto crashes and
fraudulently billed insurance
companies for $1 million.
If convicted, they will face a
minimum mandatory sentence of
two years in prison for organiz-
ing the staged crashes, and up to
15 years in prison on all
charges.
The 53-year-old suspected
ringleader Wilfred Cyriaque,
also known as "Lopez" or
"Blanc," is charged with 51
counts each of insurance fraud
and grand theft, four counts of
staging an accident, and organ-
ized scheme to defraud.
Investigators believe Cyria-
que may have staged as many as
90 crashes during the last sev-
eral years.
POMPANO BEACH A
man who allegedly lied on his
application for disability income
insurance and then filed a claim
one week after getting the policy
is facing felony charges that
could land him up to 65 years in
prison.
Bruce Sutherland, 43, had a
real estate license but claimed
he was unable to work due to
panic attacks. Department de-
tectives said medical and hospi-
tal records confirmed that Suth-
erland provided false informa-
tion regarding his medical his-
tory, and documents from the
Social Security Administration
indicated he provided false sal-
ary information as well.
Based on his application,
Sutherland was issued a Disabil-
ity Income policy that provided a
monthly disability benefit of
$3,000 until he turned 65. Suth-
erland's maximum benefit for
disability would have been ap-
proximately $828,000.
The claim was denied.
ST. PETERSBURG A
couple and a relative are facing
felony insurance fraud charges
after state fraud detectives de-
termined they fraudulently col-
lected $39,000 from, their insur-
ance coverage stemming from a
staged automobile accident.
Detectives determined that
Azem Jakupaj, 41, his wife, Fik-
reta, 36, and Edin Muratovic, 26,
gave false information to their
insurance company following a
January 2004 staged crash at
8th Street and 94th Avenue
North.
The Jakupajes said they did
not know Muratovic, who was in
the other car, but a witness said
they were seen talking prior to
the accident, and the investiga-
tion revealed that they are re-
lated.
The Jakupajes' two young
daughters were in the car at the
time of the staged accident.
JACKSONVILLE An in-
surance agent who stole
$366,000 by convincing at least
six elderly clients to cash in their
annuities and reinvest in other
insurance products was sen-
tenced to three years in prison
and order to pay restitution.
Thomas Larry Griggs, 48, op-
erated Griggs Financial Services
in Jacksonville and was a li-
censed insurance agent.
He persuaded several elderly
victims to surrender their annui-
ties and reinvest into other in-
surance products sold by Griggs,
but insurance fraud detectives
determined that once Griggs re-
ceived the surrender proceeds
from the annuities, he converted
the monies to his own personal
use.
Two of the victims have since
died.
PLANTATION Three
South Floridians bamboozled a
title insurance company out of
$1.2 million by playing with the
paperwork.
Anthony Phillips, Suzanne
Destefano and Chena Henry are
accused of conspiring to steal
$1.2 million from Attorney's Ti-
tle Insurance Fund through a

FWC Offers Special

Licenses To Military


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) is
providing service men and
women a new way to enjoy their
favorite outdoor activities.
Beginning July 1, the FWC
will offer a Military Gold Sports-
man's License to active duty and
retired military that are sta-
tioned in Florida or have lived in
the state for six months and
claim Florida as their primary
residence.
The reduced-fee annual li-
cense ($20) offers the same privi-
leges as the traditional Gold
Sportsman's License ($83.50).
It includes hunting, saltwater
fishing and freshwater fishing li-
censes and wildlife management


MISS BARTOW Softball, 12 and under, All-Star
team recently took first place in the Miss Florida
Softball State Championship Tournament held in
Venice. They competed against 11 teams from
throughout the state. Champions are (from left):
front Wanda Darby and Emily Sanders; second
row Lindsey Martin and Taylor Nix; third row -


area, archery, muzzleloading
gun, turkey, Florida waterfowl,
snook and crawfish permits.
The Florida Legislature voted
to create the new license during
its last session. Rep. Will Ken-
drick and Sen. Jeff Atwater
sponsored the bill.
. The Military Gold Sports-
man's Licenses are only avail-
able at tax collectors' offices.
Those wishing to purchase one
must show their military ID
cards plus a Florida driver's li-
cense or orders showing they are
stationed in Florida.
More information about hunt-
ing and fishing in Florida is
available at www.MyFWC.com.

Dove Permits Now Available


Each year, the Florida Fish
*and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) offers exceptional
dove hunting opportunities
throughout the state.
The FWC manages nine spe-
cial-opportunity dove fields
through its Dove Club, the agen-
cy's Special-Opportunity Dove
Hunt Program.
Beginning at 10 a.m. on July
1, sportsmen can apply to pur-
chase Dove Club Permits at any
county tax collector's office,
authorized license agent, online
at MyFWC.com/dove or by call-
ing 1-888-hunt-Florida (486-
8356), toll-free from anywhere in
the United States or Canada.
Dove Club permits, which are
available on a first-come, first-
served basis, allow one adult and
one youth (under age 16) to par-
ticipate in all scheduled hunts
for a designated dove field (up to
8 days).
These half-day hunts cost
$150 and enable the permit
holder and the youth to both
take a daily bag limit of birds.
Dove hunting opportunities
are in high demand, and these


special hunts offer the setting for
friends and family to hunt to-
gether in a friendly, social at-
mosphere.
Hunters who purchase these
annual permits will save them-
selves more than half off the cost
of daily permits for the season.
There are two new special-op-
portunity dove fields that will be
open this coming season.
'A 31- acre dove field has been
added to the Bayard Public
Small-Game Hunting Area (
PSGHA) in Clay County, and 50
acres has been created as a dove
field at the Fussel Road PSGHA
in Polk County.
Seven additional special-op-
portunity dove fields are proba-
bly already very familiar to some
hunters, as they were open last
year.
They are Schneider Farms (
Escambia County), Parker Road
(Alachua County), Caravelle
Ranch (Putnam County), DextWr/
Mary Farms Unit (Volusia
County), Hilochee (Polk County),
Allapattah Road (Martin
County) and Frog Pond (Miami-
Dade County i.


Dove Day Permits also are
available at a cost of $35.
These daily permits enable
one adult and one youth (under
age 16) to hunt together, but
only allows one hag limit of birds
to be harvested 'between the
two.
Additionally, there is an op-
tion to buy a $10 youth permit at
the same time a Dove Day Per-
mit is purchased.
The youth permit enables one
youth, while hunting under the
supervision of the adult Dove
Day Permit holder, to harvest an
additional daily bag limit of
birds.
The Dove Day and Youth per-
mits go on sale at 10 a.m. on
Sept. 18, and they are transfer-
able.
Interested hunters are en-
couraged to purchase permits
early as demand for these hunts
often exceeds their availability.
For more information on these
great dove hunting opportuni-
ties, visit www.MyFWC.com/


Tees will be filled on Satur-
day, July 16, as the Royal Rang-
ers Golf Tournament is held at
Torrey Oaks Golf Course, 218
Bostick Road in Bowling Green.
Entry fees, payable to Corner-
stone Royal Rangers is $45 per
person. The tournament will be
limited to only 72 players. Hole
sponsorships cost $50 per hole.
Mulligans are $10 each.
Registration will begin at 7
a.m. A shotgun start for the four-


person scramble and best ball
tournaments will begin at 8 a.m.
A barbecue lunch will be
served at noon, at which time
awards and presentations will be
made.
Special events will include
longest drive contest, closest to
the pin and a raffle.
Beginners, scratch golfers,
everyone is welcome.
For more information, call
314-8996 or 285-8966.


Unique Hunts Offered


In addition to regular and
special quota hunts, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is offering
sportsmen some unique hunting
opportunities for the coming sea-
son.
The FWC is providing sports-
men' mobility-impaired hunts,
supervised youth hunts, a family
hunt, quail hunts and track ve-
hicle and airboat hunts on wild-
life management areas (WMAs).
Applications will be available
June 30 from FWC regional of-
fices and online at www.wildflor-
ida.org/hunting.
The application period for
submitting applications to be in-
cluded in the random drawing is
July 13-29.
Like the regular and special
quota hunt applications, these
applications must be submitted
through the internet, at tax col-
lector offices or at any license
agent.
Applications are no longer ac-
cepted by mail.
Mobility-impaired hunts are
for persons who require special '
equipment. These hunts are not
intended for hunters who have
Florida Disabled Person Hunting
and Fishing Certificates, but
rather those who are perma-
nently confined to a wheelchair,
persons who require the use of
mechanical aids (crutches and
walkers) to walk or those with
complete single-leg
amputations.
Another unique hunt is for
hunters 8-15 years old. Two
WMAs in the North Central Re-
gion (Camp Blanding and An-
drews) offer opportunities for
non-hunting adults to supervise
young hunters on public hunting
areas where the number of hunt-
ers and the hunting areas are


rigidly controlled to provide an
optimum learning experience
and maximum safety.
These hunts are popular, and
the number of applicants ex-
ceeds the number of spaces
available each year.
The new Matanzas WMA will
offer a family hunt this year. Ap-
plicants age 18 or older may ap-
ply for a permit. The permit
holder is required to bring one or
two children ages 8-15.
Unlike the youth hunt, the
family hunt allows the adult su-
pervisor to hunt with the chil-
dren.
Wildlife management areas in
the southern part of the state of-
fer hunters an unusual challenge
because of their open-marsh
landscape.
Hunting these areas requires
special vehicles, and the FWC
has established quotas on the
number of vehicles allowed.
Permits to operate track vehi-
cles on the Rotenberger, Ever-
glades and Holey Land WMAs
and permits to operate airboats
on the Everglades and Francis S.
Taylor WMAs are issued in two
random selections.
A quota hunt permit will be
required to hunt quail on the
Blackwater WMA Hutton Unit
and Blackwater Field Trial Area
in the Northwest Region.
There are seven two-day
hunts available on the Hutton
Unit and two four-day hunts on
the Field Trial Area.
The quota is two groups per
hunt on the Hutton Unit and
three groups per hunt on the
Field Trial Area. A group may
consist of up to three hunters.
Shooting hours end at 3 p.m.,
and the bag limit is 12 quail per
group per day.


Stormwater Tax


(Continued from Page 1)
Gerald Cochran told the com-
mission that the fee "is another
way to take money out of my
pocket," and said the public
works department should be able
to handle the work. He also said
the new fee should be submitted
to the voters for approval.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
said the storm drainage division
will be in the public works
department, and that no more
than one new job will be created.
Ray Bridenbaugh said: "I find


it a stretch to believe it's not a
tax. Our city taxes are extremely
high as they are." He also said
the city should be doing a better
job of maintenance with existing
revenues.
Laurent moved passage of the
ordinance, amended to eliminate
the automatic annual increase in
the tax, and Hinton seconded.
Mrs. Thornburg joined in the
unanimous vote.
The commission passed two
companion ordinances, one to
create a "stormwater utility," the
other to impose the tax to fund it.
