I-3 Public Hearings Tuesday


On City's Rural Estate Zoning


The Bartow city commission equates to a density of 5.8 homes percent of the cost of infrastruc-


will hold a public hearing on
Tuesday on an ordinance to create
rural estate zoning, establishing
zoning districts of allowing one
house per acre (RE-1) or two
houses per acre (RE-2).
The proposal came from the
zoning board at the urging of res-
idents of E.F. Griffin Road, many
of whose homes, are on sites of at
least one acre.
Rural estate zoning would
allow the city commission, at the
recommendation of the zoning
board, to establish these low den-
sity zones, though it would be up
to developers to seek such zoning.
The same ordinance would
eliminate reference the number of
houses per acre allowed by vari-
ous zoning categories, leaving it
to citizens to divide the number of
square feet per building lot into
the number square feet in an acre
(43,560) to figure out the density.
For example, R-1 zoning allows
lots of 7,500 square feet, which

with a concert by the Bartow Adult Concert Band at
the civic center, and continue throughout the after-


noon at IMC Park. Fireworks are set to go off at
9:30 p.m. (Photo montage created by Dawn
Wade)


per acre. The lowest density zon-
ing presently in the code is R-1-
5A, which requires lots of at least
16,000 square feet,. for a maxi-
mum density of 2.7 homes per
acre.
The ordinance will be consid-
ered on second reading Tuesday
night, and a public hearing is
required on final passage of any
ordinance.
The commission's meeting nor-
mally would be held tonight, but
was moved to Tuesday because of
the Fourth of July holiday.
The commission will hold a
work session at 5:30 p.m. the
time has been moved back a half-
hour from the previous 5 o'clock
work sessions and will recon-
vene at 6:30 for its regular meet-
ing.
Other items on the agenda:
Public hearings on ordi-
nances to reduce the performance
bond required of subdivision
developers from 100 percent to 25


ture, and to allow modular struc-
tures in all zones within the city.
First reading of ordinances
to:
(1) Annex 19.5 acres of land
west of Crown Avenue, north and
south of the railroad tracks.
(2) Increase the allowable lot
coverage of homes in residential
zones from 35 to 45 percent of the
lot size.
(3) Rezone 2.3 acres of land on

Bartowans will be able to build
substantially larger houses on
building lots if a recommendation
by the zoning board is approved.
At the recommendation of
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers, the
zoning board voted to endorse a
code change to allow houses to
occupy up to 45 percent of a lot.
At present the lot coverage
limit is 35 percent.
Wiegers said the change would
be particularly helpful to owners
of houses on smaller lots who
want to add a room onto their
homes but are prohibited from
doing so by the 35 percent limit.
An ordinance allowing 45 per-
cent lot coverage will be consid-
ered by the city commission on
first reading on July 5, and will
come up for a public hearing on
July 18.
The zoning board also:
Voted to recommend rezon-
ing a 2.3-acre parcel of land on


U.S. Highway 17 at the back
entrance road into Wal-Mart from
conservation to highway commer-
cial. Pete Bell, land planner for
Kenneth Farrer, said plans are to
build a 25,000-square-foot com-
mercial development on the prop-
erty. That issue also will be con-
sidered by the commission on
July 5 and 18.
Noted Wiegers' report that
survey and design work is being
done on upgrading the intersec-
tion of Wilson Avenue and the Old
Eagle Lake Road. Improvement
of that intersection will make pos-
sible construction of the sec-
ondary entrance to Bartow
Regional Medical Center, he said.
Was told by Wiegers that he
will return to scheduling zoning
board meetings for the fourth
Monday of the month so that City
Atty. George Dunlap can attend
the meetings. The board has met
on the second Monday for the last


few months, and Dunlap has been
unable to attend because that is
the same night that the city com-
mission holds its airport authori-
ty meetings.

Polk County commissioners
have taken the next step toward
enlarging the South County Jail
in Frostproof by selecting Peter
R. Brown Construction and
Semco Construction to provide
pre-construction services for the
project.
The contract will be for a fee
hot to exceed $89,000.
Earlier this year, commission-
ers listed enlargement of the jail
as a major priority.
The contract is for construc-


tion management services for the
first phase of adding new dormi-
tories and renovating existing
dormitories at the jail.
The contract will be funded
with revenues from the correc-
tional impact fees levied on new
construction.
Funding for the construction
itself has not yet been locked in,
but County Mgr. Mike Herr has
proposed using the two percent
increase in the public service tax
for that purpose.

Mrs. Previno's father walked
her across the lawn and into the

The sky was overcast, but it

'Faithful Interpretation'

Is the Court's Job


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

Tom Cruise's Mid-Life Crisis


Like every other red-blooded
American male, I loved the per-
formance of Tom Cruise in "Top
Gun."
I suspect every red-blooded
American female enjoyed it just
as much, if for different reasons.
Tom Cruise is the Paul
Newman of his generation.
That he appears to be going
through a mid-life crisis, with his
., trophy wife-to-be and his adoles-
cent public displays of affection,
does not diminish his skills as an
- actor, though they make him look
a little silly.
But when he took to the air-
waves to criticize Brooke Shields
for seeking psychiatric care and
taking antidepressants for post-
partum depression, he stepped
over the line.
Now a Scientologist, Cruise
has declared psychiatry to be a
"pseudo-science."
I'm not sure what Cruise
would have her do. Perhaps turn-
ing around three times, clicking
her heels, and saying "I am not
depressed! I am not depressed! I


am not depressed!" would work
the same magic for her that a sim-
ilar procedure did for Dorothy in
"The Wizard of Oz."
The older ... no, let's say the
more mature ... I get, the more
willing I am to acknowledge that
just because I don't understand
something doesn't mean it's not
legitimate.
Chiropractic medicine, herbal
supplements, acupuncture, acu-
pressure, reflexology, meditation,
yoga, and other disciplines all
have their advocates in the med-
ical community.
Mary gives me an antioxidant
vitamin pill each morning, and so
far, I have not started to rust, so
there must be something to it.
If somebody wants to live his
life by whatever precepts it is that
Scientology teaches, he assuredly
does not need my permission.
Brooke Shields has always
been a class act in my book.
Though we have never met, I saw
her in person when she and my
older daughter graduated from
college together, and you could


not ask tor a less pretentious,
more genuine person, at least not
when it comes to Hollywood's
megastars.
When someone of her caliber
is willing to go public and
acknowledge that she needed,
and sought, help for a psychiatric
problem, she makes it possible
for thousands, perhaps hundreds
of thousands, of other people to
do the same. She validates the
need.
As a man, of course, I have no
experience with postpartum
depression. It's like stopping to
ask directions: it's something not
required of the male of the
species.
But in addition to making a
fool of himself, Tom Cruise's
"ridiculous rant," as Brooke
Shields so accurately labeled it,
did a great disservice to the sci-
ence and practice of psychiatry,
as well as to the patients and
potential patients in need of psy-
chiatric care.
The world would little know
nor long remember (I love that


phrase from the Gettysburg
Address) Cruise's opinion on
psychiatry had not Matt Lauer
opened the door in an interview
on NBC's Today Show.
It started out as just another
puff piece on "War of the
Worlds," but then Lauer, who
normally shows better judgment,
asked Cruise to expound on his
opinion on psychiatry.
Compounding the error, Lauer
started arguing with him, which
served only to allow Cruise to
further expand on his theories.
When he's pretending to blow
MIGs out of the sky or to save the
world from aliens, Tom Cruise is
a convincing actor.
When he holds himself out as
an expert on psychiatry, he looks
like a fool. As to Matt Lauer, I am
reminded of a bit of generic
advice I learned long ago:
Never argue with a fool; some
people will lose track of who's
who.


Surprise.
It was Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, not
Chief Justice William Rehnquist, who
announced on Friday morning that she
will retire, at the age of 75, after 24 years on
the United States Supreme Court.
History will record that she was the first
woman on the Supreme Court, a distinc-
tion that will have less and less meaning as
the United States accepts the proposition
that except for interior linemen and Sumo
wrestlers, gender is meaningless as an
indicator of ability or chances for success.
Already the nation has a second woman on
the Supreme Court.
Can you name her?
SThe point is made. (Justice Ruth Bader
Ginsburg.),:
Immediately the battle lines were being
drawn between the right wing and the left.
Right wingers want a reactionary who
will reverse Roe vs. Wade.
Left wingers want an activist who will
rewrite the Constitution to say what they
wish it said, not what it says.
Hopefully, neither side will prevail.
Justice O'Connor often was the swing
vote on the Court, aligning herself with
neither the left nor the right. Court
observers classify her as a "moderate. con-
servative," but more important, a person
whose vote often established the majority.
In one of her last cases, she voted in the
minority in a 5-to-4 decision to allow an
all-powerful government to confiscate pri-
vate property, using the power of eminent
domain, and sell it to another private enti-
ty3. ., ,
"The specter of condemnation hangs
over all property," she wrote. "Nothing is
to prevent the state from replacing any
home with a shopping mall, or any farm
with a factory." It is a little frightening that
a majority of the Court couldn't see that,


or worse, didn't think it was important.
On the firestorm issue of abortion, she
sided with neither the three members who
found no Constitutional basis for allowing
abortion or others who said it is an obvious
right. In an issue fraught with such angst
on both sides, she realized that neither
extreme held title to Final Truth.
She generally sided with states in dis-
putes with the power of the federal gov-
ernment, as is clearly the intent of the
Constitution as enunciated in the Reserved
Powers Clause in the Tenth Amendment:
"The powers not delegated to the United
States by the Constitution, nor prohibited
by it to the States, are reserved to the States
respectively, or to the people."
President Bush said he would appoint a
replacement who will "faithfully interpret
the Constitution and the laws of our coun-
try."
That, of course, is the proper job of the
Supreme Court, but it is doubtful that
either Bush or the left wing in the Senate
will really make that the standard.
There are, however, jurists capable of
applying that standard.
Sandra Day O'Connor was one.
Hopefully, another will be appointed to
succeed her.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Summerlin Class of 1944


I had planned to write a col-
umn this week about the Fourth
of July when I received an invita-
tion from Jack Hayman to attend
the 61st Summerlin Institute class
reunion.
Jack was the president of the
Class of '44 and played "To The
Colors" on his bugle at the flag
raising each morning and "Taps"
in the afternoon when the flag
was lowered and school let out
for the day. We all stood at atten-
tion wherever we were. It still
gives me goose bumps to think
about it.
The 61st reunion? It doesn't
seem possible. We had probably
the very best class that ever grad-
uated from Summerlin Institute:
the prettiest girls, the handsomest


boys, the most intelligent stu-
dents, the best teachers ever. I
remember them with great affec-
tion.
You can argue about this, if
you like, but it won't matter to
me. I will never understand why
they changed the name of
Summerlin Instiute to Bartow
High School. It doesn't fit.
I remember everyone filing
into the auditorium the day after
Pearl Harbor was attacked by the
Japanese and listening to
President Roosevelt on 'the inter-
com giving his address on the
"Day of Infamy" and declaring
war.
Rev. Russell Carleton gave the
benediction and we left the audi-
torium in silence, each of us pre-


pared to do whatever was neces-
sary to defend our country and
keep it safe.
Some of our boys didn't wait
to graduate, but enrolled in the
armed forces immediately.
Others finished the school year.
An agent from the F.B.I. visited
the school and spoke to our
assembly, asking who would like
to go to Washington and work for
the F.B.I. after graduation.
Jean Douglas and I raised our
hands and were sent to the sher-
iff's office to be fingerprinted. I
really wanted to go but was
afraid my father wouldn't let me.
I couldn't believe that he actually
approved.
I saw many things of interest
while I was in Washington, even


if we worked a 60-hour week and
got off only on Sunday. I couldn't
do that today.
I remember when President
Roosevelt came back from the
Yalta Conference. We were
allowed to go down to the
Capitol building to see him when
he returned from Yalta. He
looked very ill but waved and
smiled at everyone.
Shortly after that, he died.
We went up to the Capitol to
bid him goodbye. We were silent
as the caisson drawn by horses
came by to take him to lie in state.
I would like to wish everyone
a happy holiday. Let's all remem-
ber those who serve in our armed
forces and express our apprecia-
tion.


OUR READER SAY

'Drinking from a Well We Did Not Dig'


BARTOW -- Most of us have
heard the words. "Secure the
blessings of Liberty to ourselves
and our Posterity." But if the
truth be known, we are all
"drinking from a well we did not
dig" when it comes to enjoying
the blessings of liberty that we
enjoy each and every day, living
in the land of the free and the
home of the brave.
Just as the Founding Fathers of
our country pledged their lives,
their fortunes, and their sacred
honor, America's patriots must
still make sacrifices to ensure that
their children and grandchildren


can live in peace in years to come.
On Independence Day, let's
remember all those in the armed
forces who have given their lives
to allow us to enjoy the purple
mountain's majesty, above the
fruited plain. Let's remember our
military veterans, who helped to
defend our great land from ene-
mies both foreign and domestic.
Let's remember those red-blood-
ed Americans who donate their
plasma and platelets on a regular
basis to help others. And let's
remember those true-blue men
and women who vote for the
leaders of our country in elec-


tions and those who serve as jury
members to make our criminal
justice system the best in the
world.
Don't wait for Thanksgiving to
let the Man Upstairs know how
much you appreciate all that He
has done on our behalf.
Remember, when you see those
fireworks on the Fourth, that we
are indeed "drinking from a well
we did not dig" as we enjoy
blessings of liberty. God bless the
U.S.A!

each new school year.
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.
School crossing guards are
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-
nities surrounding school cross-
ings.
Crossing guards also have
been able to provide important
information regarding criminal
events occurring in their as-
signed areas.

such as "End of the Road" and "
I'll Make Love to You," along
with the Mariah Carey collabo-
ration "One Sweet Day."
After a break, which saw the
departure of band member Mi-
chael McCary, Boyz II Men is
back with their CD, "Throw-
back," billed as an "impressive
tribute to timeless classics" such
as "Sara Smile," "Let's Stay To-
gether" and "Human Nature."


The show starts at 7 p.m. and
is included in park admission, so

plimentary bleacher seating.

available at an additional
charge.

Non-Native Cactus Moth Threatens

Cactus Industry in U.S., Mexico


From the Institute of Food
and Agricultural Services
In a prime example of how
Florida is becoming a haven for
exotic pests, a South American
moth is attacking valuable orna-
mental cactus plants used in
landscaping and could be a
threat to the nation's $70 million
cactus industry.
First spotted in the Florida
Keys about 15 years ago, the
tiny moth has already spread
northward to Alabama and
South Carolina. Now, University
of Florida entomologists say the
invasive pest could spread even
farther, attacking natural and
cultivated prickly pear cacti in
other areas of the United States.
Jim Cuda, an associate profes-
sor of entomology with UF's In-
stitute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, says residents should
be on the lookout for the cactus
moth (Cactoblastis cactorum)
and the damage it causes in
yards, plant stores and nurser-
ies. Suspected infestations of the
pest should be reported to the
U.S. Department of Agriculture
in Tallahassee.
Cuda, who believes the spread
of the insect may have been has-
tened by hurricanes in 2004,
said the pest is troublesome be-
cause there are no natural ene-
mies to stop it. The insect feeds
only on prickly pear cacti.
"Surveys for natural preda-
tors that could be imported for
effective biological control of the
moth are being conducted by
USDA scientists in South Amer-
ica, and they also are testing a
sterile insect release program,
but their effectiveness has not
yet been determined," Cuda said.
"Widespread use of pesticides is
not practical because the pest
potentially inhabits thousands of
square miles in Florida alone, in-
cluding habitat for the endan-
gered Schaus' swallowtail but-
terfly."
The pest could threaten rare
U.S. prickly pear cacti that are
not cultivated, said Richard
Moyroud, chairman of the Flor-
ida Endangered Plant Advisory
Council and owner of Mesozoic


Landscapes, a native plant nurs-
ery in Lantana.
"Once something as tiny as
this moth gains a foothold in
area where it has no enemies,
stopping it is almost impossible,"
Moyroud said.
The moth is one of several re-
cent insect invaders to threaten
ornamental and food crops in
Florida, along with the pink hi-
biscus mealybug, Asian citrus
psyllid and Diaprepes citrus root
weevil, Cuda said.
The moth can fly short dis-
tances, but it is believed to
spread primarily via transporta-
tion of infested plants, he said.
The moth leaves two distinct
calling cards. Female moths de-
posit stacks of tiny eggs on the
sides of the fleshy cactus pads,
and the, stacks resemble inch-
long cactus spines. These stacks
of eggs are called eggsticks.
When caterpillars hatch from
the eggs, they burrow into cactus
pads to feed, leaving tiny holes
that ooze a green, slimy fluid.
The eggsticks can be removed
from cactus pads and frozen be-
fore being discarded, he said.
Any pads infested with caterpil-
lars should be removed from the
parent plant, wrapped securely
in several layers of plastic, held
in a freezer for three days and
properly discarded.
The caterpillars, which are
tan or orange with distinctive
black traverse bands, can be
found by cutting open infested
cactus pads. Adult moths are
gray and white with a wingspan
of about one inch. Casual observ-
ers are more likely to notice
holes in the cactus pads than see
moths, Cuda said.
Stephen Hight, a USDA re-
search entomologist in Tallahas-
see, said residents should report
sightings of the pest by calling
him at 850-656-9870 or e-mail-
ing him at Hight@nettally.com .
"If the sighting is from an
area where we know the cactus
moth is found, we can offer sug-
gestions for controlling the pest,"
Hight said. "If the sighting is
from an area that's new, we need
to make sure the culprit really is
the cactus moth, and we may ask


No idea, is, so outlandish that it should not be considered with a
searching but at the same time with a steady eye.

people to contact their local
county extension service agent
for confirmation. Or, we may ask
for a digital photo."
Cuda said there are some 31
species of prickly pear cactus in
the United States, including six
that are native to Florida. Also
known as opuntia, prickly pears
are used in drought-resistant
landscapes across the country.
Some species are also used in
foods, particularly in salads and
Mexican dishes. The U.S. cactus
industry has a total estimated
value of $70 million per year.
In Mexico, home to more than
50 species of prickly pear, the
cacti are important food sources
for people and cattle. Mexico's
cactus industry generates $50
million to $100 million per year,
so the cactus moth would have a
devastating impact if it finds its
way into the country, Cuda said.
"We don't want this pest to
spread any further if we can
determine exactly where it is
now, we can concentrate our con-
trol efforts," Cuda said.

By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

Racking up six state titles in
the past nine years is nothing to
laugh at. That's why Bartow
softball coach Glenn Rutenbar
doesn't joke around when it
comes to the off-season.
Most of the Lady Jacket ros-
ter plays on a competitive travel
ball team 'in the summer
months, but Rutenbar said he
likes to instill the fundamentals
of softball as early as possible,
even in the under 10 ranks.
What was started as just a
way to get in extra practice time
for his players has evolved into
somewhat of a farm system for
the perennial state champs.
"It's been good for us," he
said. '"Obviously it's worked real
well for us in the past few years
in particular."
In 1995, when the softball
program in Bartow was less than
a decade old, Rutenbar said he
felt it was time to "jump in" to
the world of travel ball, and set
up a team to keep his players
sharp in the off-season.
At first, Rutenbar delegated
the responsibility of coaching it
to one of the junior varsity
coaches. With only a small inter-
est in fastpitch softball in Bar-


tow at the time, the team was
comprised of mostly players from
outside the area.
In 1997, however, Rutenbar
decided to take over the coaching
duties to get the chance to work
more with his daughter, Kelli.
"It was real hard to get
started. At first we couldn't do it
because there weren't enough
players from Bartow," he said. "
Summer ball' started with really
a few teams throughout the state
and it has been continuing to
grow and the players are getting
better."
As the program at Bartow
High School began to gain noto-
riety, younger players' interest
in softball in Bartow began to
grow as well. Soon, Rutenbar
was coaching a team of only girls
who lived in Bartow.
In a few years time, the pro-
gram began to expand and teams
were being formed of younger
and younger girls, all from Bar-
tow.
Now the Jacket coaching staff
heads up four travel ball teams:
U-18, U-14, U-12 and even U-10.
"Players need better coaches
at younger ages," he. said. "You
try to work on fundamentals.
You want to catch all the prob-
lems with their fundamentals as
early as possible."


Year by year, coaches from
around the state began to pick
up the practice as well, but Ru-
tenbar said some of the coaches'
competitive nature comes as a
hindrance in prepping them for
the high school season.
"Most travel ball coaches
worry about winning too much.
If we get beat in travel ball, it's
no big deal," he said, adding that
some coaches try to recruit play-
ers from around the state to im-
prove the team.
"That kind of defeats the pur-
pose of being a high school
coach."
Instead, Rutenbar has main-
tained rosters of almost entirely
Bartow players and the results
have-spoken for themselves.
The Lady Jackets became in-
volved in off-season play 10
years ago. Since 1997, the team
has made it to the state final
four every year and has won the
title all six times, including the
last four years.
With his other daughter,
Kara, now a senior, Rutenbar
said it might be time to pass the
coaching duties off to someone
else.
"It might be time, I don't
know. I can't foresee myself just
not doing anything. I enjoy it too
much."
