Would allowing the city to
require larger residential lots
next to upscale subdivisions cre-
ate a smoother transition to
denser development, or would it
create an easy way out for devel-
opers to achieve an artificial
appearance of compatibility?
City Planning Dir. Robert
Wiegers told the planning and
zoning board that his compatibil-
ity recommendations would
answer concerns of owners of
spacious residential lots who
liave complained-iabolt high den-
sity subdivisions 'beig. approved
next to their homes.
But Brent Geohagan, a lawyer
who .specializes in representing
clients in fighting high density
developments, told the board:
'This is real scary, real scary."
Wiegers' proposal would
require that "compatibility issues
between adjacent residential
developments shall be addressed
during the development review
process."
It would permit, but not
require:
An increase in the frontage
of lots that face lower density
homes.
An increase in minimum
setbacks on lots facing existing
homes.
Larger houses on lots facing
existing homes.
Additional landscaping or
other buffering.
Any combination of these


out a path along the lake. In the background is part
of the Bartow High School campus. Crossroads will *
build the courts and trails, and the city is con- H holiday
structing a restroom facility. See story in today's

features "or acceptable alterna-
tive proposed by an applicant."
Wiegers' proposal to require
larger lots only on the perimeter
of a high-density subdivision "is a
superficial one," Geohagan said,
adding:
"The entire development
should be compatible."
He predicted that lawyers for
developers seeking approval of
high-density developments
would use larger lots around the
edges of subdivisions as the basis
for claiming compatibility, and
that city commissions would buy
the argument.
Geohagan, who represents
John and Terry Frost in a lawsuit
challenging the density in the
planned Silver Companies active
senior citizens development on
U.S. Highway 98 at the north
entrance to Bartow, suggested
that as a minimum the code
should allow overall reduction of
density as another option.
Board Member Bo Raulerson
proposed adding that option to
Wiegers' list of ways to address
compatibility issues.
Speaking of high-density sub-
divisions, several of which have
been approved on E.F. Griffin
Road, Geohagan said:
"The quality of life is lost; the
investment is lost."
He asserted that larger build-
ing lots "are selling like hot-
cakes."
He said that some zoning
codes require that entire subdivi-
sions not just lots on the
perimeter be compatible with
existing housing.


"No one wants to stop develop-
ment," Geohagan said. "Nobody
is that stupid."
Board Member Drew Guffey
spoke in support of Wiegers' pro-
posal, saying that "it gives the
ability to work with adjacent
property owners."
He said the Geohagan's pro-
posal would be "rezoning after
the fact," by applying one density
standard through zoning, and
then requiring lower density in
the development review stage.
Pete Bell, a land planner, told
the board: "I see this as offering
an additional tool."
Compatibility of land uses
usually refers to different type of
land use, such as commercial and
residential, not to lot sizes, he
said.
Terry Frost urged the board to
add a provision to the compatibil-
ity standards to allow the city to
require lower density.
Board Member Susan Brewer
moved approval of the list sub-
mitted by Wiegers, saying that
requiring larger lots on the
perimeter would decrease hous-
ing density.
Her motion died for lack of a
second, with other board mem-
bers saying they wanted more
time to study the proposal. Mrs.
Brewer then joined other mem-
bers of the board in voting to
table the issue until the board's
July 25 meeting.
Geohagan suggested that the
board listen to an ad hoc group
that has been formed to look at
development issues.


It was a rare occurrence: resi-
dents of an upscale development
praising a developer for his plans
to build a subdivision next to
their homes.
Residents of Sago Palms devel-
opment on Taylor Road off the
Old Eagle Lake Road have resist-
ed other developments in their
neighborhood, but praised Bill
Konrad on his plan to create larg-
er building lots adjacent to their
homes.
Last month, Sago Palms resi-
dents cried "foul" when the zon-
ing board received Konrad's
application for another R-1 subdi-
vision on Taylor Road. R-1 is the
city's highest density standard for
single-family homes, allowing
homes on 70-foot wide lots.
In recommending approval of
previous high density develop-
ments in the area, Planning Dir.
Robert Wiegers had assured Sago
Palms .residents that he would
insist on lower density zoning
next to their homes.
Unaware of that representa-
tion, made in 2002, Konrad told
the neighbors in May that he
would rework his plans for the
40-home subdivision he has
named Taylor Landing.
In resubmitting his plans at
the board's June 27 meeting,
Konrad asked for R-1-B zoning,
which requires 90-foot minimum

Our biggest event of the year is
nearly here!
Bartow's 25th anniversary
Fourth of July celebration is just
around the corner and promises
to be as fun-filled as ever.
This year's theme is "Bartow
Celebrates a Salute to America
the Beautiful," and celebrate we
will, beginning with
Congressman Adam Putnam's
annual family barbecue Friday,
July 1, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., at
IMC Park.
But the big event comes
Monday, July 4, with the Bartow
Adult Concert Band, conducted
by John DeYoung, starting out
the day with a free patriotic con-
cert at the Bartow Civic Center.
The concert begins at 2:30 p.m.
After the concert, everyone's
invited to walk over to IMC Park
for carnival rides, food, drinks,
children's activities, entertain-
ment, and much more.


frontages, and said that lots fac-
ing Sago Palms would be at least
100 feet wide.
The next row away from Sago
Palms would have 90-foot lots,
next row (in an R-1 zone) would
have 80-foot lots, and the fourth
row would have 70-foot lots.
"It's exactly what we needed,"
said Diane Goss, a Sago Palms
resident who previously has
opposed high density zoning next
to Sago Palms. "This develop-
ment is wonderful."
But she said the city still needs
to do something about Taylor
Road, which at some points is
only one lane wide, and the grow-
ing number of residents who will
use that road to enter the Old
Eagle Lake Road.
"Is anybody thinking ahead?"
she asked.
Other neighbors echoed her
remarks.
"It's going to be wonderful for
us," Mae Wynns said of plans for
Taylor Landing. But she said the
width of Taylor Road presents a
problem.
Gordon Thompson asked
Konrad who would buy in Taylor
Landing.
Given that the homes likely
will sell in the $250,000 to

(See Page 10A Col. 4)


The carnival will begin with

Recount Request Denied


On Pay Cut Petitions


There will be no recount of
petitions seeking to amend the
Polk County charter to cut the
pay of constitutional officers in
half, Circuit Judge John Laurent
ruled on Thursday.
Dewey Smith,. head of the
Home Rule Charter Committee
which led a petition drive to put
three proposed charter amend-
ments on the ballot, asked for a
recount of the pay cut petitions.
Elections Supv. Lori Edwards
said that there were 61 too few
valid petitions to put that issue
before the voters. The other two
petitions to make constitution-
al officers elected department
heads under the control of the
county manager, and to limit
them to two consecutive terms in
office were validated by the
elections supervisor, and will go
to the voters in the November
2006 general election.
In trying to get the pay cut ini-
tiative on the ballot, Smith asked
the court to:
Order Ms. Edwards to pro-


duce the 704 petitions which
were invalidated.
Examine the standard of
review used in verifying the peti-
tions.
Appoint an independent
evaluator to examine the invali-
dated petitions.
Judge Laurent ruled that
Florida law holds that "the judg-
ment of officials charged with
carrying out the election process
should be presumed correct if
reasonable and not in derogation
of the law."
He said that Ms. Edwards
"used her best judgment in deter-
mining the process for verifying
signatures by relying on the
Florida Administrative Code."
That code, he said, requires
that petitions contain the
signee's name, street address,
voter registration number or
birthdate, and signature, and the
date that the petition was signed.
It is the second time that
Judge Laurent has upheld Ms.
Edwards' action in counting and


certifying the petitions.
Polk Committee for Effective
Government brought suit asking
the court to reject all the peti-
tions, charging that Ms. Edwards
had misinterpreted the county
charter with regard to the dead-
line for submitting petitions.
Judge Laurent found that her
actions were "rational and not
outside legal requirements."
County Atty. Joseph Jarret
said the county will not appeal
either ruling, adding: "The coun-
ty is not taking sides."
The five constitutional officers
- who are called that because
their positions and duties are set
forth in the Florida Constitution
- are the sheriff, courts clerk,
tax collector, property appraiser,
and supervisor of elections.
At present, they are elected by
the voters, and are not answer-
able to any other officials.
If brought under the charter,
they would answer to the county
manager, who in turn answers to
the county commission.


UNCOVERED BY DEMOLITION, this mural decorates the east
wall of the Jerue Trucking-Gateway Insurance building which burned
on June 6. A few stories about what it might depict have been heard
around town, but it actually appears to be dolls and other toys, with
the heading "Since 1995." It was part of the decor when the old Tate-
Phillips building housed Dolene's antique and gift store. (Staff

Juvenile Detention Center Is

Topic Of Civic Club Luncheon


Jon W. Loftheim, superinten-
dent of Polk Regional Juvenile
Detention Center, spoke to the
Fort Meade Civic Club on Thurs-
day, June 23.
Loftheim has held several ad-
ministrative positions with the
Department of Juvenile Justice.
For more than 28 years, he
had an impressive military ca-
reer, retiring as a colonel with
,,the U.S..Army.
I ':. He received his education at
US .Military Academy at West
:"Point and attended US Army
'War College in Carlisle, Pa.
He called the last 10 years of
his career unexpected, interest-
1,ing, and, in.many ways, reward-
ing. : : :: :. :
Loftheim explained that the
mission of the Department of Ju-
yenile Justice is to protect the
public, to reduce'juvenile crime
Sand to bring young people to "a
standard society can work with.
"The detention center is only
.one. element in the Department
Sof- Juvenile Justice," he said.
,"Qtiher elements include preven-
tion, which is to., keep kids from
coming into: the system to begin
with, probation and community
,control.
"These include court ordered
residential programs which
monitor kids as they reenter
community life, training skills
programs and help with mental
health issues," he said.
The average stay for kids,
who range in age from 6 through
22, is normally 14 days.
At least 50 percent return,
some again and again.
"If the kids are court ordered
to our detention center it usually
means they have committed an
offense which is the equivalent
of a felony in the adult commu-
nity.
"Today we see a lot more do-
mestic violent crimes, assault or
:battery to a teacher, kids in-
volved in drug related problems,
many more broken family prob-
lems, single parent. families and
especially females who have
been sexually abused," Loftheim
said.


At least 30 percent of children
entering the program have men-
tal health problems.
"This is also true in adult
jails," he said. "The children
have the same problems. Chil-
dren often have serious health
problems when they come in."
When a child enters detention
they are given three days of ori-
entation.
They are trained how to get
along in the center, how to react
in court, and they are tested for
basic skills.
They are then required to at-
tend school five days a week, six
hour days.
"Do they want to go to school?
No! Many of them have not been
in school for a long time," he
said. "We have our own teachers
who live in Polk County. Each
child is evaluated and a special-
ized plan is designed for their
education while they are there."
They are fed according to die-
tary guidelines mandated by the
state.
"Our food contractor, Trinity
Services, furnishes three meals a
day and a snack. At least two of
the meals are hot, sometimes
three. These meals afford 3,200
calories per day," he said. "They
are not pizza, hot dogs, ham-
burger, and soda pop. They are
nutritious, balanced with re-
duced sugar in the evenings.
Kids are served milk, water or
fruit juice."
The children shower daily,
but many of the kids must be
taught to wash their hands,
brush their teeth, and other ba-
sic life skills which most of their
parents have overlooked, he
said.
Depending on their behavior
they are rewarded with movies,

have been supportive helping
kids with life skills, learning
how to read, conducting special
projects like making baskets for
the elderly or care packages for
the troops.
Youth For Christ always fol-
low up with the kids after they
leave detention.
As far as recreation, the chil-
dren do still enjoy time off.
"We have Yoga classes be-
cause it teaches discipline," Loft-
heim said. "They love it. They
have at least one hour a day,
sometimes two hours outside
recreation where they are able to
work off energy."
Kids are allowed one-half
hour visitation from a parent,
guardian or grandparent. No vis-
its are allowed from brothers,
sisters, other relatives or friends.
"We have two contract nurses.
The doctor comes twice a week.
We offer good mental health
care. For emergency services, or
Baker Act, we have an agree-
ment with Peace River Center
until the child is stabilized. Our
center focuses on prevention
rather than treatment. That
comes later," he said.
Loftheim said the facility at
2155 Bob Phillips Road in Bar-
tow is old. It has been built in
three different phases. One part
in the 1970s, the other in 1980s
and another part two years ago.
One maintenance mechanic is
hired to care for the entire com-
plex. It has 90 beds.
"We can house 112 and have
had 120 to 130. The facility
serves Polk, Hardee and High-
lands. We are authorized to have
94 staff. We currently have 82.
This is not a lot when you con-
sider 24 hours a day, seven days
a week coverage," he said. "We
must have a minimum of eight
people on the floor at any given
time with the lowest population,
just to man the building. We
must have three people ready for
transportation to three different
courts, plus the medical staff.
"Our staff is highly trained.
They must have 240 hours spe-
cialized training and at least 128
hours at the academy, yet they
are paid, start off, only $24,000 a
year. It is very hard to keep
help. There is a large turnover,
because of the stressful work.
"Employees are also required
to be role models who teach kids
to live life in another manner
than what they are accustomed
to living. They are required to
maintain disciplined behavior in
the face of physical, verbal, emo-
tional abuse from wounded indi-
viduals who need a lot of help,"
he said. "Our employees are
dedicated.
"I need to tell you some posi-
tive things," Loftheim said. "Last
year we had two kids graduate
from high school. We had a high
school student write an essay on
black history and win a $1,000
bond. Several of our teens won
$25 gift certificates in a contest
offered by Teen Pregnancy.
"We have had kids win the
National Day of Prayer contest.
It is amazing when you read the
notes and cards some of these
kids write to troops and the eld-
erly. They are hungry for com-
panionship they are not getting
at home," he said.
Loftheim encouraged grass
roots support, visits to help kids
learn to read, serving on the ad-
visory board, taking a tour of the
facilities and help with legisla-
tive changes that would increase
salaries for workers and provide
more funds for maintaining fa-
cilities.

Lk Wales

Government

Center Now

Reopened
Lake Wales Government Cen-
ter has reopened, 10 months af-
ter hurricane damage tore off
roofs and water damage forced
the government offices within
the complex to close.
Since that time, the offices of
the tax collector, clerk of courts
and sheriff have been under ma-
jor renovation to restore services
as soon as possible.
In mid-August of last year,
Hurricane Charlie swept up
Highway 27, wreaking havoc up
the ridge area of Polk County.
The Lake Wales area was espe-
cially hard hit.
Immediately after Hurricane
Charlie, all offices in the Govern-
ment Center were closed.
However, before roof repairs
could be made, subsequent dam-
age from hurricanes Francis and
Jeanne compounded the damage,
resulting in extensive repairs to
the interior of the building.
In the meantime, many resi-
dents in the southeast corner
needing tags and title work have
had to use other branch offices of
the tax collector, such as the one
Bartow.
All government center activi-
ties were ceased during the con-
struction. For many residents of
Lake Wales, this re-opening is a
welcome return of Clerk and Tax
Collector services.
The government center, lo-
cated at 658 State Road 60 West,
in the Lakes Wales Plaza Shop-
ping Center, has opened with
newly-renovated offices.

Compatible Development


Can Be Achieved


Is it possible for present residents and
residential developers to reach accord on
new subdivisions adjacent to upscale
homes?
It is.
That was demonstrated Monday night
when residents of the Sago Palms develop-
ment off the Old Eagle Lake Road praised
developer Bill Konrad for keeping a
promise that the city planning department
made three years ago.
After hearing concerns of Sago Palms
residents at the May meeting of Bartow's
planning and zoning board, Konrad came
back with a plan that balances their con-
cerns about housing density with his own
objective of creating a saleable subdivision
and making a profit in the process.
Specifically, 'Sago Palms residents are
concerned about the proliferation of
homes built on 70-foot lots the densest
single-family standard in Bartow's devel-
opment code adjacent to their own
homes on lots about twice that size. Their
concerns are well taken.
Konrad responded with a proposal to
create 100-foot lots facing Sago Palms, scal-
ing back to 90 feet, 80 feet, and 70 feet in
successive rows of houses. In giving up a
few building lots, Konrad established larg-
er lots on which he believes homes will
command prices of $250,000 to $400,000.
Developers' are fond of saying that
homeowners are clamoring for high densi-
ty subdivisions -with minimum lot sizes;
that clamor, if it exists, is a function of the
fact that the vast majority of development
is occurring on such lots. Purchasers have
little choice. '
We commend Konrad for figuring out
how: to work with neighbors to preserve
existing ambiance while creating a mar-
ketable development.

Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers, who
promised Sago Palms residents in 2002
that he would insist on the type of transi-
tional development that Konrad will
deliver, has proposed establishing the
option of similar planning in other areas


where high-density subdivisions are being
approved next to existing one-acre home-
sites.
Brent Geohagan, a lawyer who repre-
sents citizens in fighting high-density
development in Bartow and elsewhere in
Polk County, warns that Wiegers' proposal
would give developers an easy way out. It
would create a mechanism to achieve the
appearance of compatibility by requiring
only the lots nearest existing homes to be
larger than the high-density standard in
the rest of the subdivision.
Geohagan said that the way to achieve
true compatibility is to require the entire
subdivision to be compatible with the
neighborhood. He is absolutely correct,
but thus far, the city has shown little inter-
est in establishing that standard of com-
patibility.
So is Wiegers' proposal for a single row
of houses that are compatible with existing
homes better than nothing?
Or is the city willing to require entire
developments to meet a standard of transi-
tional compatibility?
Geohagan was correct when he
declared: "No one wants to stop develop-
ment; nobody is that stupid."
It's a statement that needed to be made.
High quality and real compatibility do
not equate to opposition to development.
They are objectives that willbe appreci-
ated or missed long after the devel-
opers have moved on.

OUR READERS SAY

Edwards Showed Political Courage


Regarding Dewey Smith's
petition efforts, Mr. Smith has
done the impossible four times
(twice in 1999 and twice in 2005).
In defiance of an onerous seven-
percent petition per district
requirement, according to the
elections office Dewey was just 61
petitions short of getting a fifth
petition on the ballot. That'peti-
tion would have given the voters
the opportunity to cut the consti-
tutional officers' pay by 50 per-
cent. According to a. recent court
ruling there willbe no recount,
but Mr. Smith and The People,
are still the big winners.
We will all get a chance to vote
whether or not we want to bring
the constitutional officers under
the charter arid to term limit
them. What is even better we still
have more than a year to get
another politicians' pay cut pro-
posal on the ballot:. Knowing Mr.
Smith as I do, he'.s.just started to
fight. He'll get this important
proposal on the 2006 ballot.
With respect to this latest court
development, I find no fault in
Supervisor of Elections Lori
Edwards' performance, just
respect and admiration.
Lori Edwards showed courage
in the face of a relentless political
evil that, + "'y reasonable
assumption: .-:."attempted to
undermine her sacred duty and
influenced a 'grand jury to
defame her she stood the test of


greatness.
Ms. Edwards calmly forged
ahead and proved all charges
against her to be unfounded. Per
the following transcript excerpts,
the politicians who tried to com-
promise her are the tax collector,
the clerk of courts, the property
appraiser, the sheriff and possibly
even the state attorney.
Excerpts from Lori Edwards'
deposition:
Attorney Johnnie Byrd: Did
you at any point contemplate that
there was a conflict of interest for
you to be involved in this petition
process?
Ms. Edwards: Not in the peti-
tion process. I did contemplate
that it would be a conflict of inter-
est for me to be involved in the
Committee of Continuous
Existence that was put together
by the other Charter officers.
Byrd: And you were recruited
to be a contributor or member of
the Committee of Continuous
Existence?
Ms. Edwards: Yes.
Byrd: And you declined to do
so?
Ms. Edwards: Yes.
Byrd: How do you understand
the object[ive]s of that committee
as it relates to this particular peti-
tion issue?,
Ms. Edwards: It is fund raising
in an effort to put together money
to fight the passage of the three
petitions that we've been dis-


cussing today, the Polk Charter
petitions.
Byrd: And were you contacted
by Mr. Killebrew or others or
who were you contacted by to
become of member?
Ms. Edwards: The other con-
stitutional officers.
Byrd: Do you personally sup-
port their object[ive]?
Ms. Edwards: No.
Byrd: All right. Do you person-
ally support the objects of the
Home Rule Committee?
Ms. Edwards: No.
Byrd: All right. So you're com-
pletely and totally neutral per-
sonally and in an official posi-
tion?
Ms. Edwards: No. I have some
personal opinions.
Byrd: What is your personal
opinion?
Ms. Edwards: My personal
opinion is that it really wouldn't
bother me too much if they cut
the salary my salary in half.
And it's my personal opinion that
it is up to the voters of Polk
County to make this decision ...
It is also my opinion that the
other constitutional officers are
taking a very self-serving stance.
And I've told them all that. And I
don't think that it washes pub-
lic[ly].

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

Call 'Em the Ten Suggestions?


Part of the charm of the United
States Supreme Court is the
extent to which it goes to split
hairs and then to justify the split-
ting thereof.
Okay, perhaps you never
thought of the Supreme Court as
charming, but I think it sort of
fits.
The court split 5-to-4 (is the
United States Constitution really
so hard to understand that nine
of the sharpest legal minds in the
republic can't agree on what it
says?) in deciding that, it is okay
to display" the Ten
Coinmandments in front of the
state Capitol in Austin, Texas.
But the court also decided, 5-
to-4, that it is not okay to display
those same Ten Commandments
in two rural Kentucky court


houses.
Part of their reasoning (set
forth in an opinion by Justice
Stephen Breyer) is that the Texas
monument has been in place
since 1961, and had drawn little
reaction, while the displays in
Kentucky have drawn fire since
they were first put up in 1999.
And the Texas display is
deemed to be of historical impor-
tance, while apparently some-
body was concerned that having
the same words on display in
Kentucky court houses might
actually inspire local judges to be
guided by their principles.
Who knows when some
Kentucky mountaineer might
build a graven image, or speak ill
of his parents.
It seems to me that maybe the


whole thing might be solved by
adopting the terminology that
has been proposed in the light of
today's more permissive society:
simply changing the name to the
Ten Suggestions.

Meantime, a guy in the town
of Weare, New Hampshire, has
garnered his 15 minutes of fame
in reaction to the Court's earlier
ruling that government can con-
fiscate private property through
eminent domain, and then sell it
to another private party.
Logan Darrow Clements has
faxed a request to Chip Meany,
code enforcement officer for the
town of Weare, applying to build
The Lost Liberty Hotel on proper-
ty at 34 Cilley Hill Road. That
home owned by one David H.


Souter, the same David H. Souter
who is a justice of the Supreme
Court, and voted with the major-
ity to allow government to take
private property for private use.
Clements points out that the
hotel would generate more taxes
for local government than Justice
Souter's home, hence making it
to the advantage of the town
council to condemn 34 Cilley Hill
Road so he can build his hotel.
He says he's serious.
He also-said that Lost Liberty
Hotel would have a Just Desserts
Cafe and a museum featuring "a
permanent exhibit on the loss of
freedom in America."
Clements didn't say if he
planned to display the Ten
Commandments.

Thirty-Five Years Ago

The fiercest electrical storm to hit Bartow
in many years struck Monday night, inter-
rupting power service all over town and cut-
ting off telephone service to-two rural areas.
City Mgr. Richard Barton said the city
received more than 300 calls from persons
whose electricity was interrupted.
A resolution requesting the federal court to
modify certain areas of Polk County's inte-
gration plan was adopted Wednesday night
at the county school board's session.
The salary schedule of all personnel in


Polk County's public schools received the
approval of county board members during
their Wednesday meeting, with teacher sup-
plements being given, and raises for "merit
and accountability and positive perfor-
mance."
A silent robber who spoke only two words
robbed the Kwik Serve food store on South
Orange Avenue, Sunday night. Mrs. Eunice
Heberline, the assistant manager, was alone
in the store, when the man walked in about
10:45, walked straight to the counter, "poked
a gun at me, waved the gun at the cash regis-
ter, and said nothing but 'Hurry up'."

Thirty Years Ago

Roy L. Perdue, 89, prominent citrus grow-

Friday afternoon.
Polk County's "poor farm," established in
1893 with one inmate, was discontinued 10
years later because there weren't enough
poor folks in the county to justify its exis-
tence, former Congressman J. Hardin
Peterson, Sr., told the Polk County Historical
Society at the group's first anniversary lun-
cheon Wednesday.
C.T. Clark, forced out last month as


Bartow's city manager, has been appointed
police chief at Mount Dora.

Twenty-Five Years Ago

A police union contract calling for raises of
$1,500 a year for each of the next two years
was negotiated by the city and Teamsters
Union 444 in record time on Wednesday. The
contract is similar in many details to the fire-
fighters contract worked out last week.
Polk County old-times ranging in age from
80 to 102 were honored Thursday at the annu-
al luncheon of the Polk County Historical
Assn.

Polk Transit Services Wins Award

For Hurricane Training. Program


Although most of its employ-
ees had never lived through a
hurricane, Polk County Transit
Services, A division or the Polk
County Board of County Com-
missioners, weathered Hurri-
canes Charley, Frances and
Jeanne with amazing efficiency
- thanks in large part to their
annual hurricane simulation
training program.
The program was imple-
mented just four years ago in an-
ticipation of a possible severe-
weather-situation, and has
earned the Division the prestig-
ious "2005 National Association
of Counties' (NACo) Achieve-
ment Award."
The award recognizes coun-
ties for improving their services
by implementing "effective and
creative programs with measur-
able results."
Transit Services Director San-
dra Winegar began requiring
Hurricane Simulation Training
of all her employees and contrac-
tors in 2001 because of the criti-
cal role the program plays dur-
ing a hurricane or other severe
weather-related event.
Transit Services is responsi-
ble for transporting Polk County
residents to public and special
needs shelters, distributing
emergency relief supplies after-

ward, and assisting with various
other transportation needs
throughout such an emergency.
During Hurricanes Charley,
Frances and Jeanne, Transit
Services employees transported
699 dialysis patients for treat-
ment, evacuated 168 patients
from two nursing homes, evacu-
ated residents from a condemned
apartment complex, transported
327 individuals to public shel-
ters, transported 53 residents to
hospitals and nursing homes,
and provided 802 trips for other
medical reasons.
They also delivered food, wa-
ter, ice and baby supplies
throughout Polk County and as
far away as Wauchula, in Har-
dee County.
"Transit Services employees
are on the front lines during a
hurricane, yet most had never
experienced one hurricane, let
alone three," Ms. Winegar said.
Offered in May of each year,
the hurricane simulation train-
ing is designed to let staff mem-
bers drivers, dispatchers, cus-
tomer service representatives
and administrative staff know
what to expect during a hurri-
cane.
The training combines tradi-
tional PowerPoint presentations


with speakers, group activities,
interactive testing and role-play-
ing.
The training emphasizes indi-
vidual responsibilities before,
during and after the hurricane,
relying heavily on scenario-
based learning. Transit drivers,
for instance, act out how they
would handle road flooding or
downed power lines; dispatchers
practice how they would respond
to the various problems drivers
may encounter; and supervisors
practice resolving all conflicts in
a way that ensures the safety of
Transit Services employees and
Polk County residents.
Ms. Winegar designed the
training program at an esti-
mated cost of $600 per year.
"Training like this is invalu-
able to our employees and to
every constituent we serve," Ms.
Winegar said. "This program al-
lowed Transit Services to meet a
critical, even lifesaving, need
when Polk County residents
were most vulnerable."
Recognizing the need for
training beyond just her divi-
sion, Ms, Winegar opened the
program to all other interested
agencies. The low-tech" nature
of the training also allows it to
be easily replicated and adapted
to local or specialized needs.

It's Time To Prepare


Storm Emergency Kit


If you haven't prepared a hur-
ricane emergency kit, you're al-
ready several weeks behind
schedule.
Hurricane season began on
June 1.
"You are responsible for you,"
Katy Hitchcock of the county's
emergency management division
told the Bartow Rotary Club.
When a major storm is ap-
proaching, the county activates
its emergency operations center
at Bartow Municipal Airport; af-
ter the storm passes through,
the county opens a recovery op-
erations center in the Stuart
Center at the county agriculture
center in Bartow.
In last year's three hurri-
canes, some 55,000 Polk County
structures were damaged and
2,699 were destroyed, she said.
Polk County recorded 14
storm-related deaths, the high-
est of any county in the state.
This year, forecasters are pre-
dicting 15 named storms, of
which eight will be hurricanes
and four will be severe hurri-
canes.
When a storm is approaching,
.residents should-fill their gas


tanks, and after the storm
passes, should watch for washed
out roads, Ms. Hitchcock said.
Preparations should include
assembling a disaster kit and de-
termining medical needs of fam-
ily members who might need to
be taken to one of the county's "
special needs" shelters.
It also is important to plan for
the care of pets, who currently
are not permitted at any. public
shelters. The county is trying to
find shelter locations that would
accept pets.
Ms. Hitchcock recommended
keeping disaster kits at work, at
home, and in the car.
The kits should contain:
One gallon of drinking wa-
ter per person per day for three
days.
Non-perishable food, includ-
ing "comfort foods."
A manual can opener.
A flashlight.
An AM/FM radio.
Batteries.
Medicines.
Clothing.
Bedding.
Hygiene items.
SImportant papers and pho-


tographs.
A first aid kit.
A waterproof container.
"Rethink your needs each
year," she recommended, and ro-
tate food items.
The best hurricane shelter is
your own home, if it is built to
standard. The best protection
from a hurricane or tornado is in
an interior room without win-
dows.
Other shelter options are
homes of a friend or family mem-
ber, evacuating the area, and ho-
tels and motels.
Public shelters are a last re-
sort, she said, and offer minimal
comfort.
Shelters prohibit pets, fire-
arms and alcohol.
Preparation of homes should
include boarding up (not taping)
windows, trimming trees and
shrubs, and bringing in loose
items from the yard.
When a storm is approaching,
residents should turn their re-
frigerators to the coldest setting,
to preserve food in the event of a
power failure, and fill a bathtub
or other large container with wa-
ter.


Celebrate The Fourth Safely


Independence day means fun,
barbecues and fireworks, but
Florida's Chief Financial Officer
and State Fire Marshal Tom
Gallagher is urging Floridians to
think about fire safety as they
make their Fourth cf July plans.
"The Fourth of July is a great
time for families and friends to
relax together and reflect on the
freedoms we all enjoy," Gal-
lagher said. "But don't let the
celebration turn to tragedy. If
you're buying fireworks to cele-
brate, remember that if it
launches or explodes, it is illegal
in Florida."
Gallagher encouraged Floridi-
ans to instead attend a profes-
sional fireworks display or enjoy
any of the hundreds of legal
sparklers listed on the State Fire
Marshal's web site at
www.fldfs.com/sfm.
Illegal fireworks include
shells and mortars, multiple
tube- devices. Roman candles,
rackets and firecrackers. Floridi-
ans should not sign "waivers" in
order to purchase fireworks.
Signing a waiver will not
clear you of responsibility should
you be caught using them, and
using fireworks illegally is a
first-degree misdemeanor pun-
ishable by up to one year in jail
and a $1,000 fine.
Even if you are using legal
sparklers there is still a risk of
injury. When lit, some sparklers
can reach temperatures between
1,300 and 1,800 degrees, at least
200 degrees hotter than a stan-
dard butane lighter.
Illegal fireworks aren't the
only fire hazard facing Floridi-
ans looking to celebrate this
weekend. Gallagher said grills
and campfires also can pose real
risks.
The Consumer Product Safety
Commission reports that each
year about 30 people die and 100
people are injured as a result of
charcoal and gas grill fires, ex-
plosions and misuse.
Many of these fires and explo-
sions occur when consumers first
use a grill that has been left idle
for a period of time or just after
refilling and ieattaching the
grill's gas container.
Meanwhile, campers can suf-
fer serious and, fatal burn inju-
ries if they use" candles, portable
stoves, cigarettes, lanterns, or
matches around camping tents
and sleeping bags. ,
Sparks can also blow from a
nearby campfire 'and ignite a
tent or sleeping bag.
Gallagher advises Floridians
to follow these precautions to
celebrate safely:
Sparklers
Use sparklers and other le-
gal novelties on a flat, hard sur-
face. Do not light them on grass.
Use sparklers in an open
area. Keep children and pets at
least 30 feet away from all ig-
nited sparklers. '
Light only one item at a
time and never attempt to re-
light a "dud."
Don't use any unwrapped
items or items that may have
been tampered with.
Keep a fire extinguisher or
water hose on-hand for emergen-
cies. It's a good ,idea to drop
used sparklers in a bucket of wa-
ter.
Grills
Check the tubes that lead
into the burner for any blockage
from insects, spiders, or food
grease. Use a pipe cleaner or
wire to clear blockage.


Check for gas leaks, follow-
ing the manufacturer's' instruc-
tions, if you smell gas or when
you reconnect the grill to the LP
gas container. If you detect a
leak, immediately turn off the
gas and don't attempt to light
the grill until the leak is fixed.
Check grill hoses for crack-
ing, brittleness, holes, leaks or
sharp bends.
Move gas hoses as far away
as possible from hot surfaces and
dripping hot grease. If you can't
move the hoses, install a heat
shield to protect them.

'Tow To Go' Program Offered

Again This Fireworks Season


For the sixth year, AAA Auto
Club South and Budweiser are
offering the "Tow to Go" pro-
gram.
Created in 1998, the program
offers a free ride home and a free
tow to adults who have drunk
too many alcoholic beverages
and are unsafe drivers.
"Tow to Go obviously helps
those drivers who find them-
selves in a dangerous situation,
but more importantly, it keeps a
major hazard off our roads," Ed
Schatzman, senior vice-president


of automotive services for AAA
Auto Club South, said. "This pro-
gram protects countless motor-
ists who may otherwise be left in
the path of a potential drunk
driver."
Any adult who needs a ride
home from bars or restaurants
during the Independence Day
weekend may call 1-800-AAA-
Help. After the call, AAA Auto
Club will dispatch a tow truck to
take the driver and car home
free.

great community, and then take it upon himself to make
it happen. We're very fortunate that Guy chose to make
his home in this area. Our thanks as a board and as a
community go to Guy, his family- and the whole

community to help us fulfill that mission," Anastasio
said. "Philanthropic gifts of all sizes major and
modest combine together to make a dramatic
difference in the quality of life that we all enjoy here.
Each of us who have worked with Mr. Bostick over the
years owe him a debt of gratitude. On behalf of the
medical staff and the professional staff and the 2,500
employees at Winter Haven Hospital, we thank him for
this investment in our organization's mission."

Headquartered in Auburndale, Florida, Comcar
Industries is a family-owned business led by Guy
Bostick and his son Mark Bostick. The company was

The focus of the school cross-
ing guard is to encourage stu-
dents to cross at proper intersec-
tions. Guards also provide infor-
mation regarding pedestrian and,
bicycle safety.

frequently, but not limited to, re-
tired residents who feel a sense
of community commitment.
Deputies often rely on school
crossing guards to advise them
of traffic problems in the commu-

Crossing guards also have
been able to provide important
information regarding criminal
events occurring in their as-
signed areas.

'Scrappy' Lady Jacket Works Her

Way to PCC Softball Scholarship


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer
The scent of extinguished can-
dles still fresh in the Allen
household, but on Wednesday
the celebration was not for a
birthday, but a college scholar-
ship.
Exactly one week after turn-
ing 18, Bartow High School grad
Jenna Allen signed her letter of
intent to play softball for the Vi-
kings of Poik Community Col-
lege.
"I'm kind of excited," Allen
said just moments after accept-
ing her scholarship. "I wanted to
stick around close to home."
Allen was recruited by cur-
rent PCC softball coach Sonia
Cook, but in the upcoming sea-
son will be playing under incom-
ing coach Dottie Cupp.
Although she played catcher
for the Lady Jackets, Allen was
recruited as an outfielder with
the possibility of moving around.
"She's very versatile and can
play multiple positions," Cook
said. "She's also extremely quick
and that's an asset to any team."
Allen's road to this point
wasn't easy. She began her ca-
reer in 1995, playing recrea-
tional softball in the Highland
City league, but didn't start
playing travel ball until high
school.
"I know what it's like to start
.out from the bottom," Allen said.
; At BHS, Allen struggled to
:find a roster spot on the junior
varsity team and finding a place
:-on the varsity field seemed like
just a dream. After two years of
:battling, including being moved
on and off the bench for the JV
squad, Allen finally broke
.through to the varsity squad as a
reserve player.
She had to compete with BHS
:alumnus Jessica Sanchez, who
"had firmly established herself as
,the Lady Jackets' number one
catcher.
After the 2004 season, San-
chez graduated and Allen finally
had her chance to shine. She

started nearly every game for
the Lady Jackets last season un-
til embarking on a student-ex-
change trip to Germany. Once
back, she was required to earn
her position back. Allen did and
went on to finish out the season
behind the plate in a state cham-
pionship year for Bartow.
"She's scrappy," said Bartow
Head Coach Glenn Rutenbar.
"She's come full circle. It's a real
success story."
With Allen's signing, all five
seniors on the 2005 BHS softball


squad have received athletic
scholarships. The other four sen-
iors, Lindsay Littlejohn (Flor-
ida), Jerrica Sanchez (Santa Fe
CC), Staci Fernandez (Santa Fe
CC) and Britta Giddens (USF)
have already signed on to their
respective colleges.
Rutenbar said it "feels great"
to see all of his seniors go on to
play under scholarship.
"We never pressure them to
go to college," Rutenbar said.
"It's nice to see and I think it's a
reward for them."


Gators Name New Softball June 30, 2005 The Polk County Democrat A
pfI r% avt+. Florida Southern Names


University of Florida signee
and four-time high school state
champion Lindsay Littlejohn
now knows the faces involved
with the Gators' softball pro-
gram.
On June 21, Athletics Direc-
tor Jeremy Foley named Tim
Walton as the new head softball
coach at UF and on Tuesday,
Walton named Jennifer Jaime
and Sondra Hall as his assis-
tants.
Walton comes to Florida from
Wichita State University in
Wichita, Kan., where he has
been the head coach for the past
three seasons. Both Jaime and
Hall served as assistants under
Walton at WSU.
"First and foremost, my goal
is going to be to achieve success
at the Southeastern Conference
level. From the first day of meet-
ings we are going to be geared
toward working hard to win that
conference title. The SEC is one
of the top three conferences in
the country, so if we take care of
that goal we can work on re-
gional and national success."
Walton has been a part of na-
tional championship teams as an
assistant softball coach and as a
baseball player, both for the Uni-
versity of Oklahoma.
Jaime, who coached with Wal-
ton for all three seasons he was
at WSU, will work with Little-
john and the rest of Florida's
pitchers.-
Jaime was an assistant coach
at Oregon for a year before going
to WSU. She began her coaching
career as a graduate assistant at
Oklahoma in 1999.
Jaime is a graduate of the
University of Oklahoma and
played for the Sooners from
1996-1998.'
"Jennifer is a great pitching
coach," Walton said. "She has a
calm, collected presence about
her. She is a good teacher as well
as a good game day coach."
Hall is no stranger to the
Southeastern Conference as she
played at South Carolina. She
played third base for the 1997
Gamecock team that went to the
College World Series.

Prior to her year at Wichita
State, Hall served as assistant
softball coach at Crescenta Val-
ley High School in California.
While at CVHS, Hall had re-
sponsibilities as a hitting and
catching coach, duties in home
game management and served
as director of camps and clinics.
"Sondra is one of the hardest
working young coaches I have
seen," Walton said. "Not only
does she have the ability to
teach, she has the ability to
learn. She is going to help every-
body and be able to learn and get
better at the same time. A
strength for her is not only being
familiar with the SEC, but with
the College World Series as
well."
Florida returns 17 of its 21
team members from 2005 for the
2006 season, including starters
at every position. In addition,
Florida adds a talented fresh-
men class including two pitch-
ers, Littlejohn and Stacey Nel-
son, infielders Brooke Johnson
and Kim Waleszonia, and utility
player Alicia Spack.

New Men's Soccer Coach


Hugh Seyfarth, an assistant
women's soccer coach at Miami
University (Ohio) for seven sea-
sons, is the new men's head soc-
cer coach at Florida Southern
College.
Athletic Director Lois Webb
announced that Seyfarth, who
will be just the fourth head
coach in the program's 48-year
history, begins his new duties
August 1. He replaces Kris Pahl,
who resigned after 12 seasons to
enter private business.
Seyfarth (pronounced SIGH-
ferth) has been a full-time assis-
tant at Miami since 2000, after
serving two seasons as a volun-
teer assistant coach for the
school's NCAA Division I men's
and women's soccer programs.
Currently Miami has only a
women's soccer program and the
head coach is Bobby Kramig,
who was a goalkeeper and team
MVP for Florida Southern in
1980-81.
"Hugh was highly recom-
mended by Bobby Kramig and I
am very confident in his ability
to lead our men's soccer pro-
gram," said Webb.
In the seven seasons Seyfarth
has served as an assistant with
the Miami women's program, the
team has produced a record of
84-47-11 (.630), won three con-
ference tournament champion-
ships, a regular season confer-
ence title, and made three NCAA
tournament appearances. He has
been responsible primarily for
coaching Miami's defense and
goalkeepers.
A 1994 graduate of DePauw
(Ind.) University, Seyfarth was
captain and team MVP of the
men's soccer team as a senior.


After one season as an assistant
soccer coach at Centerville, Ohio,
High School, he began his colle-
giate coaching career at Earlham
College (Ind.) as an assistant
men's soccer coach in 1996. He
spent two seasons at Earlham,
including part of the 1996 season
as interim head coach, before
joining the Miami staff in 1998
as a volunteer assistant.
Seyfarth received his bache-
lor's degree in history from
DePauw in 1994 and earned his
master's degree in marketing in
2000 at Miami. He has five years
of teaching experience in Mia-
mi's Richard T. Farmer School of
Business.
In addition to his coaching du-
ties at Florida Southern, Sey-
farth also will teach classes in
the school's sports management
program.

IF YOU LOOK UP ECLECTIC
in the dictionary, you just might
find "Key VWest" listed as a syn-
onym.
The southernmost city in the
United States it is closer to Cuba
190 miles i than to the Florida main-
land 1120 miles, once declared
itself to be the Independent Conch
Republic. That action was taken
when drug enforcement officials
began stopping every car headed
down the Overseas Highway
toward Key West.
Outraged Conchs that's what
the people of Key West call them-
selvesi vowed that if they were
going to be treated like a Third
World country, they would secede
from the United States and seek
foreign aid


i From top left, clockwise]
This dramatic sunset is seen
across a harbor on Stock Key, the
island just north of Key West. It
was taken at the Hogfish Grill, a
delightful rustic restaurant whose
motto is. "A Great Place Tb Eat If
You Can Find Us." That says it
well.
This metal sculpture of three
pirates with their loot is a latter
day addition to the park at Fort
Zachary Taylor.
These dramatic archways are
over the gun positions at Fort
Zachary Taylor. Modern day brick-
layers say they could duplicate the
craftsmanship with today's equip-
ment, but have no idea how such
precision could be achieved well
over a century ago.
The American flag flies proudly
over Fort Jefferson, located in the
Dry Tbrtugas islands The light-


While the secession didn't last, it
got Key West a lot of publicity. A
large sign at Key West
International Airport welcomes
guests to the Conch Republic to
this day.
The southernmost location made
Key West a logical place for forts.
One, Fort Zachary Taylor, is on the
island, and saw limited use as
recently as the days of the Cuban
missile crisis.
The other. Fort Jefferson, is in
the Dry Tbrtugas, accessible by a
45-minute seaplane ride or a couple
of hours on a high speed catama-
ran. The price of either trip
includes mask, snorkel, and fins for
swimming in the shallows just off
Fort Jefferson.
Key West is known for its dra-


house marks one corner of the fort
Okay, we'd like to say we took
this photo while snorkeling in the
Dry Thrtugas, but actually, it's a
saltwater aquarium at the Rusty*
Anchor, a redneck restaurant on
Stock Key recommended to us by
our waitress at the Hogfish Grill.
This is one of two shipwrecks
clearly visible on the seaplane ride
from Key West International
Airport to Fort Jefferson. At the left
are several smaller boats of tourists
visiting the sunken wreckage.
A moat provided close-in defense
of Fort Jefferson, while numerous
cannon ports in the brick walls
overlook the shipping lanes.
This life-size statue of an old salt
poses willingly for photos in front of
the Shipwreck Historium, which
has a 65-foot tower from which
shipwreck salvagers, called simply
-"wreckers," watched for the numer-


matic sunsets; crowds gather at
Mallory Square every day, and
actually applaud as the sun sinks
beneath the horizon. But as the
photo at the top of this page shows,
the sunset is equally impressive
from other vantage points.
Drive time to Key West is
around seven-and-a-half hours
with a stop or two along the way.
Everything is expensive in Key
West locals are issued cards for
discreetly-offered discounts at
many restaurants and stores', but
tourist brochures and tour pack-
ages offer numerous discounts to
visitors.
On our recent trip, gasoline at
Key Largo was 10 cents cheaper
than on the mainland and 20 cents
or more cheaper than in Key West.


ous shipwrecks off the shore of Key
West. Revenue from salvage opera-
tions at one time made Key West
the richest city per capital in the
United States.
The grounds of Fort Jefferson
housed officers quarters and other
support buildings, but soldiers gen-
erally preferred to sleep in the cool-
er areas overlooking the water.
Original plans were to build up
the fort even higher, but those ;
plans were scrapped in the fear ,
that the island itself could not 4
support, the additional weight.

On Faith


Faith is the Source of Freedom


By ROGER CAMPBELL
Take a fast freedom final.
Study a map of the world,
keeping in mind where freedom
has flourished and here's what
you'll find: wherever the Bible
has traveled it has fostered free-
dom, breaking chains that had
kept people in bondage for cen-
turies.
Why not?
The head of the church
promised freedom to His follow-
ers: "You shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you
free," He said. (John 8:32).
And while not engaged in
launching a political movement,
this leader of men knew that free
people spread freedom wherever
they go.
These humble hearers of the
great emancipator of souls were
without political power, but high-
er hands were guiding them and
this enabled these pioneers of
true freedom to accomplish great
things without the politically
powerful of their time being able
to take credit for the results.
We need to remember this

when the wrong side appears to
be winning and freedom seems to
be in jeopardy.
As one of our favorite patriotic
hymns reminds us, God is the
author of liberty. Political ideas
and convictions come and go,
sometimes even floating from one
political party to another so that
over time they've switched posi-
tions.
But the message of the church
(the good news of personal free-
dom through faith) remains the
same. And the church that forgets
this is in danger of trading its
lasting message for a passing one,
a change of direction that always
ultimately brings decline.
Does this mean that people of
faith are to have nothing to do
with the government? Are
churches to be silent about moral
issues and ignore obvious social
wrongs?
Of course not!
Our Lord called His followers
to be the salt of the earth and the
light of the world (Matthew 5:14).
Churches must oppose
immorality and evil wherever
they appear, but history shows
this has been most effectively
accomplished when they have
avoided embracing political agen-
das and held tenaciously to their
assigned mission. Communities
and nations are changed by
changed people.
In his recent column,
"Church, not state, must advance
moral agenda," widely read and
highly regarded columnist, Cal
Thomas, wrote: "Fixing social ills
does not begin in the halls of
Congress or the Supreme Court,


but in individual human hearts.
"Government can't go there.
God can. But if God's servants
prefer government to God, or seek
to attach God to political parties
and earthly agendas, they are
doomed to futility."
We're marking another
Independence Day with many
Americans in harm's way. Let's
not forget to pray for them.
Duty demands it and our her-
itage of faith proves its effective-
ness. The situation is serious and
we should be, too.
Of all the periods of history,
ours may cry the loudest for
churches to focus on their God
given task of setting individuals
free who, through prayer and
pure living, produce a spiritual
awakening powerful enough to
result in a new birth of freedom.

IMusings From God's Penman


The Age-Long Query: Who Am I?


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
Last week I was tootling along
without a care in the world.
Actually, I did haye several
cares, but I was ignoring them as
much as possible.
My basic philosophy is this, the
more you ignore something the
less you have to deal with it. This,
however, does not apply to the
Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage.
Experience has taught me one
lesson concerning women, espe-
cially wives. They will not stand
to be ignored, particularly by
their husbands.
I have learned the less atten-
tion I pay to my wife the more I
pay in other areas of life, if you
know what I mean.
So, ignoring the cares I had
last week, I was caught off guard
when I received a letter from my
credit card company.
This was no friendly, "how are
you," kind of a letter. Nor was it a
cheery birthday greeting.
I can't tell you how many times
I have reminded them of my
birthday, but to date they have
not picked up on my hint.
The ominous', letter I did
receive informed me that, along
with millions of other customers,
my identity had been stolen. The
letter went on to assure me I had
nothing to worry about and they
had the situation well in hand.
That's easy for them to say.
They know who they are, but
what about me?


When I got the letter I ran to
my bathroom and looking into my
mirror nothing!
My identity was indeed gone.
I assure you I will worry until I
get to the bottom of this. I will not
rest until I know exactly who I am
and my identity is fully restored.
Of course, there is one problem
here. What if when I do recover
my identity I don't like myself?
Can I exchange it or get my
money back?
For some reason the personal
information of millions of people
had been lost or stolen from the
security of my credit card compa-
ny, which begs the question, how
secured is my personal informa-
tion?
While I'm in the begging mood,
another question comes to mind.
If someone has stolen my, identity,
who in the world am I? And, how
do I reclaim my identity?
Actually, I have wrestled with
this problem all my life.
As a young person, whenever
my mother was upset with me
about something I had done or
didn't do, she would always look
at me and ask, "Who do you think
you are?"
The reason this always both-
ered me is because if anybody in
the world should know who I am
it would be my mother. And if she
he was wrestling with the same
question I was wrestling with,
how in the world could I ever
come to grips with my personal
identity?
It is hard enough discovering


who you are without somebody
casting dispersions upon that
very thing. Perhaps my mother
and I could work together in solv-
ing this problem.
After all, two heads are better
than one, unless one does not
know who he is.
I've spent years trying to find
myself. Once I thought I found
myself, but it turned out to be an
old pair of socks I lost three years
prior.
My problem is compounded by
this one thing, I did not really
know who I was before my identi-
ty was stolen.
I had my suspicions, of course.
However, somewhere in the back
of my mind, I really could not
come to grips with who I really
was in this world.
I spent some time on Tuesday
pondering this quandary. In the
course of time, (actually it was a
four-course lunch) I've come to
several conclusions.
My identity consists of several
things.
First, I am a man. What kind
of a man is anyone's guess at this
point.
But the truth is that at the root
of everything I am, I am a man.
Second, I am a husband. This,
of course, is the most baffling of
my identity. What it means to be
a husband differs from wife to
wife.
Fortunately, for me, I have
only one wife, but even her idea of
a husband changes from one
moment to the next.
I am never quite sure what she


expects of me as a husband. Once
I thought I had it all figured out,
but someone, I'm not mentioning
any names, changed the rules.
Third, I am a father. As a
father, my role consists of
bankrolling the childhood adven-
tures of my children, financing
their higher education career and
hope they get married before my
money runs out.
To this day, I'm not sure if I
made it or not.
And fourth, I am a grandfa-
ther. This is the most well defined
role I have.
The great thing about being a
grandfather is nobody expects
much from us. Our role is to
covertly help, our grandchildren
make the lives of their parents as
tempestuous as possible.
Revenge is sweet when laced
with jellybeans. Sugar highs are a
grandfather's best retaliation.
The most important thing
about my identity quest is, I am a
Christian. This undergirds every-
thing else I may or may not be.
My Christianity is the founda-
tion upon which everything else is
built.
I take comfort in the Bible:
"These things have I written unto
you that believe on the name of
the Son of God; that ye may know
that ye have eternal life, and that
ye may believe on the name of the
Son of God." (1 John 5:13 KJV).
When my identity is rooted in
believing in Jesus Christ, every-
thing else in my life falls into
place.

Greed, Envy

And Covetousness
The Bible tells us that we should "keep our life free
from. love of money, and be content with what we.
have." ( Hebrews 13:5) We are a competitive people,
and for many, this is not always an easy thing to do;
however, we should always be aware that envy and
greed have a tendency to consume and demoralize
one's whole being. When we are truly content with
ourselves, we become pleased for the blessings that
others receive, as well as for our ovin many blessings.
When a friend receives a job promotion, purchases a
new car, or obtains any blessing, a sincere expression
of happiness and congratulations to them will help
check the feeling of envy. This attitude is beneficial to
both the giver and the receiver, and is a gesture of the
way God wants us to act. Being a good worker and
earning money to provide for our loved ones is neces-
sary and can be difficult at times; but, it is also neces-
sary to recall and thank God for our own many bless-
'ings as well in order to be content with what we have.

Take heed, and beware of all covetousness;
for a man's life does not consist in the abun-
dance of his possessions.
R.S.V. Luke 12:15

CHANGES ARE MADE IN
DETERMINATIONS OF
BASE FLOOD ELEVA-
TIONS FOR THE UNIN-
CORPORATED AREAS OF
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
SFlood'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-
ecttive Officer of the commu-
nity, that the Mitigation Divi-
sion reconsider the determina-
tion. Any request for reconsid-
eration must be based on
knowledge of changed condi-
tions or new scientific or tech-
nical data. All interest parties
are on notice that until the 90-
day period elapses, the Mitiga-
tion Division's determination to
.modify the BFEs may itself be
changed.

edge or wishing to comment on
