Engineer's Report:


Water System Adequate,


But Problems Do Exist


By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor

Bartow's water system is "ade-
quate" to meet normal usage and
fight a major fire, according to an
engineering report commissioned
by the city after a June 6 fire
destroyed two downtown build-
ings.
Complaints about the water
pressure and flow began while
the fire ate at the first building,
and continued as it burst into the
second, both on the 200 block of
East Main Street.
Harold Bridges, vice-president
of Jones, Edmunds & Associates,
Inc., a Jacksonville engineering
firm, said the study concludes
that Bartow's system is adequate
to meet "peak day flow plus the
required fire flow" based on "nor-
mally accepted design practice."
Commonly accepted practice is
to meet peak daily water flow
plus required fire flow while
maintaining a minimum pressure
of 20 pounds per square inch.
That doesn't mean everything
was jake.

Main Street Traffic to Shift July 16


Nelson Construction, the firm
in charge of the redesign of Main

In one of the largest perma-
nent layoffs in recent phosphate
industry history, Mosaic Co.
announced on Monday that it will
close its Kingsford phosphate
mining operations on Sept.. 12.
After 40 years of mining, phos-
phate rock at the Kingsford Mine
southwest of Mulberry has been
depleted, company officials said.
Closing the mine will mean the
layoff of approximately 275
employees, of whom about 250
are hourly workers and 25 are
salaried.
"A limited number of employ-
ees at the mine will be retained
for up to three months following
the closing date to complete post-
mining shutdown activities," the
company's announcement said.
"In addition, Mosaic will con-
tinue to reclaim land in mined-
out areas at the Kingsford site."
That process is expected to take
several years, according to Mosaic
spokesman Diana Youmans.
Part of that work will be con-
tracted out, with a small number
of Mosaic employees put on that
project, she said.
The state requires that
restoration of "initial vegetation"
be completed within two years
after mining. Additional work
extends beyond that phase.
Reclamation already has
occurred on much of the
Kingsford -acreage: upland prop-
erty for development, agriculture
and recreation, and low-lying
property as wetlands.
Employees laid off from
Kingsford will be considered for
vacancies in other Mosaic opera-
tions, but how many can be


north side of Main Street on
Saturday, July 16. The orange
caution fences on the south side
will be removed as soon as the
brickwork is completed. However,
there will be no parking on Main
Street until the project is com-
plete."
Allen said the upcoming sched-
ule will be as follows: On
Saturday, July 16, the switchover
will take place so demolition can


absorbed is not known, Ms.
Youmans said.
Hourly employees affiliated
with International Chemical
Workers Union Local 35 will be
placed in other Mosaic operations
according to seniority and qualifi-
cation provisions in the union
contract.
Some salaried positions also
may be absorbed into Mosaic's
other operations.
Mosaic, created by the merger
of IMC and Cargill Fertilizer, is
one of only three mining compa-
nies still operating jn the central
Florida phosphate industry,
which has had close to a dozen
companies in past decades.
USS Agri-Chemicals has pro-
cessing facilities in Fort Meade
and west of Bartow, but has not
mined its own rock for a number
of years.
CF Industries has a mine in
Hardee County and a fertilizer
plant in Hillsborough County,
and offices west of Bartow at its
Bonny Plant.
Mosaic operates six other
phosphate mines in central
Florida: Hopewell, south of Plant
City in Hillsborough County;
Four Corners in Hillsborough and
Manatee Counties; Fort Green in
Polk, Hardee and Manatee
Counties; Wingate in Manatee
County; Hookers Prairie in Polk
County; and South Fort Meade in
Polk County.
Rock mined at Kingsford is
shipped to various Mosaic pro-
cessing plants for manufacture of
phosphate fertilizer products.
For the past several years,
Kingsford has been mining the
former Agrifos reserves, once
owned by Mobil and later
acquired by IMC.


begin on the north side of Main
Street. Crews will be working on
all five blocks at once.
Once the new sidewalks and
brickwork are completed in the
fall, the road will be resurfaced
with new asphalt paving. The last
step is to install the street furni-
ture, signage and the new trees,
shrubs and other landscaping.
"We are appreciative of the
care the contractor has taken to


Ore mined from Mosaic's
Wingate Creek and South Fort
Meade facilities will replace the
ore from Kingsford, and will pro-
vide adequate rock to meet the
needs of the company's cus-
tomers, Mosaic's announcement
said.
Kingsford is located southwest
of Mulberry, south of State Road
60 and south of County Road 640.
The original mine was south of
CR 640.
The federal Worker
Adjustment and Retraining
Notification (WARN) Act requires
large manufacturers to give 60
days notice of impending shut-
downs to the work force and to
the union. That notification was
given on July 11.
After the Kingsford layoffs,
Mosaic will have approximately
3,500 employees in its Florida
operations.


keep downtown businesses
informed and the extent to which
they work with business owners
to solve problems that may arise
from the construction," said
James Duane, Bartow. CRA
Executive Director. "In particular,
I want to thank Construction
Managers Sam Allen and Mike
Shain, and their work crews for
being sensitive to the needs of the
downtown businesses."

Channel

Changed
There's a new channel in
town, at least for public
access.
Bartow and Fort Meade
city commission meetings will
be shifting from Comcast
Channel 26 to Channel 5, a
spokesman said.
Church services and other
public access programs also
will be on Channel 5 as of
Sunday, July 17.

Fire Conditions
When the fire was reported at
7:01 a.m., Bartow Fire
Department connected its 2,000
gallon per minute (gpm) pumper
to a hydrant at Main Street and
Wilson Avenue. At 7:22 a.m., the
Polk County Fire Department
connected its 1,500 gpm fire
pump to two hydrants at
Davidson Street and Wilson
Avenue.
Later the Winter Haven Fire
Department connected its 1,250
gpm pumper to a hydrant at Main
Street and Central Avenue. With
all three trucks pumping, they
could pull 4,750 gallons per
minute.
Bartow also connected to a
hydrant at Summerlin Street and
Wilson Avenue, and later moved
the 2,000 gpm pumper to a
hydrant at Davidson Street and
Central..
At 7:30 a.m. pressure and flow
from the water treatment plant
were increased. High service
pumps HS-2 and HS-3 were oper-
ated continuously.
Pump HS-1 was manually
turned off and on to keep the
pressure from going over 80


pounds per square inch (psi). Too
high pressure could have affected
dialysis machines at Bartow
Memorial Hospital, Bridges
explained.
Turning the pump on and off
varied the water flow from about
3,500 to 4,700 gpm and varied the
discharge pressure from about 71
to 80 psi on a four to five minute
cycle.
At 1:10 p.m., flow from the
plant was reduced to 3,000 gpm
until 10 p.m., when it dropped
back to normal. Water plant per-
sonnel estimate that 507,000
additional gallons were pumped
from the plant to fight the fire.
A six-inch valve northwest of
the fire, at Church Street and
Central Avenue, is believed to be
broken in a partially-closed posi-
tion, according to the report.
Bridges used International
Organization for Standardization
(ISO) procedure to calculate the
fire flow needed for one nonsprin-
klered building, and determined
the water flow necessary for each
building, which was 3,000 gpm.

Furlong Awarded Bronze Star

2 Other Medals For Iraq Service


Chief Warrant Officer 2 Jerry
"Gator" Furlong has been award-
ed the Bronze Star and two other
medals for his service in
Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Furlong, a graduate of Bartow
High School, served in Iraq from
January 2005 to February 2005
as a UH-60 maintenance test
pilot, and also was tactical opera-
tions officer. While deployed in
Iraq he flew more than 400 com-
bat hours and 150 missions.
The Bronze Star was awarded
for "outstanding meritorious ser-
vice. CW2 Furlong has distin-
guished himself as a UH-60
maintenance officer and mainte-
nance test pilot during actions in
support of Operation Iraqi
Freedom II," the award read.
"Through his actions and his
many outstanding accomplish-
ments, CW2 Furlong has served
as a sterling example for all to
follow. He has brought great
credit upon himself, B Company
1-171st Aviation, Task Force
Voodoo, and the United States
Army."
Lt. Col. Martin Hersey of the
1-111th Aviation Battalion in
Jacksonville presented the
award.
Furlong also received the
Army Commendation Medal for
displaying "unusual resourceful-
ness, technical ability and
mature judgment in the execu-
tion of many important aspects of
the tactical operations officer,"
Capt. Paul Daniel said. He said


that Furlong took a non-existent
training program and, in three
months, created a program which
is used by other units in the
Army National Guard.
His third award was the Air
Medal for "exceptionally merito-
rious service," Major Benjamin
Lacy, III, said.
"Jerry's courage and commit-
ment to duty are shown on a
daily basis as he pushes the
unit's aircraft to their limits and
ensures that they are ready to
perform under harsh environ-
mental conditions. He has flown
several maintenance test flights
at altitudes requiring more expo-
sure to enemy threats, regardless
of personal risk," Lacy said.
And when Furlong "is not per-
forming his primary duties as a
maintainer, he is relied upon as a
pilot-in-command. He has
planned, executed and led many
of his missions throughout the
Iraqi theater under enemy fire in
harsh environmental conditions
with 100 percent mission suc-
cess," Lacy continued. "He is
directly responsible for the suc-
cess of the task force on every
mission and he is relied on with-
out concern or questions that the
mission will get done."
While in Iraq, Furlong flew
Secretary of State Colin Powell,
Ambassador Paul Bremer,
Ambassador Negroponte and
Iraqi heads of state.
Bartowans may remember
Furlong as the pilot who flew a


UH-60 helicopter to the 2003
Fourth of July celebration.
Gator has always wanted to
fly, and began building model air-
planes in elementary school. He
joined the Florida National
Guard at 17, between his junior
and senior years at BHS.
He was an honor graduate of
basic training at Fort Jackson,
S.C., and after, graduating from
high school, he went to advanced
individual training at Fort
Rucker, Ala., as a UH-1 heli-
copter mechanic, graduating sec-
ond in his class.
A year later, in 1996, he
trained as a UH-60 mechanic at
Fort Indiaritown Gap, Pa.
Furlong completed Officer
Candidate School and initial
entry rotary wing training at
Fort Rucker in 1998-99. At 21, he
was the youngest in his class.
The awards were presented
June 5, when the Florida
National Guard unit in
Brooksville held a Freedom
Salute for Operation Iraqi
Freedom, an awards ceremony to
recognize soldiers who. had dis-
tinguished themselves in a com-
bat situation. The Company B, 1-
171st aviation unit: ceremony
was held in Army Aviation
Support Facility #2, and was fol-
lowed by a catered buffet lunch
for soldiers and their guests.
Furlong's parents, Sheila and
Jerry L. Furlong, and friends,
Jackie and Ben Ewing, of Bartow,
attended the event.

Bartow Library Featuring

'Freedom Bookshelf


A new feature at the Bartow
Public Library, the We The Peo-
ple Freedom Bookshelf, is now
on display and in use.
The books on the, shelf were.
given to the library through a
grant from the National Endow-
merit for the Humanities and the
America Library Association.
The bookshelf itself was. pro-
vided by the Friends of the Li-
brary.
The books, classic literacy
publications that reflect the
theme of freedom, are grouped
into age categories, ranging from
kindergarten through 12th
grade.
The Bartow librarians encour-
age students to read all the


books in the age category and
also would like parents to read
these books with their children
,and discuss the importance of
freedom.
Upon completion, readers are
asked to write a story that shows
the theme of freedom, either a
true story or a fictional one. All
freedom stories will be posted by
the bookshelf to inspire other
readers.
The Freedom bookshelf is cur-
rently on display on the main
floor of the library, located at
2150 S. Broadway, and is acces-
sible throughout the year.
For more information, call the
library at 534-0131.

All nine routines received a
gold or high gold award.
Four routines finished in the
top 10 overall. Two routines also
received special awards for their
outstanding performances.
The youngest dancers, per-
forming to "Boot Scootin' Babes,"
placed second overall, and quali-

PC Foolishness


On a Global Scale


We have seldom, if ever, had anything
good to say about the "political correct-
ness" movement.
To us, it serves no purpose other than
to give people who go out of their way to
get their feelings hurt some artificial
grounds to take offense.
Two little-noticed events in Europe in
the past week underscore the fact that
this PC '.lishness can be played out on
a global scL Both were reported in a
weekly magazine called The Week,
which boasts of itself: "All you need to
know about everything that matters."
MIvore than 150 ships from 35 countries
sailed into the English Channel to com-
memorate the 200th anniversary of the
Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.
As students of European naval history
of the early 19th Century surely that
includes you will recall, that naval
engagement took place between .. the
red team and the blue team.
Huh?
Actually, it took place between the
British Navy and the French and Spanish
Navies. The Brits won.
But rather than offend the French and
the Spanish by reminding them of a 200-
year-old battle loss, the re-enactors
staged the battle between the fleets of
two nameless teams, identified by color.
"Anna Tribe, 75, the great-great-great-
granddaughter of (Admiral Lord)
Nelson and his mistress, Lady Emma
Hamilton, said the euphemisms were a
ridiculous exercise in political correct-


ness," the magazine reported.
"I am sure that the French and the
Spaniards are adult enough to appreciate
that we did win that battle," Lady Emma
said.
Think so, huh?
On the same page, the magazine
reported that French politicians cam-
paigning against ratification by their
countrymen of the European Union con-
stitution raised the specter of a "Polish
plumber" who would move into the
neighborhood to take away French jobs.
(Okay, you probably have to live in
Europe to fully appreciate the symbol-
ism; we don't, and we don't.)
At any rate, the Polish tourism board
responded with a tourism poster that
"features a studly blond plumber bran-
dishing a wrench and saying, 'I'm stay-
ing here. Come visit.'"
And to think, America used to live on
French fries and make Polish jokes.

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

Whither Courtesy, M'Lords and M'Ladies?


Like most of my contempo-
raries, I was raised in an age
when children were expected to
address adults as "Sir" and
"Ma'am."
It was second nature.
Sure, an occasional reminder
was required, but it was as com-
mon as "Please" and "Thank
You."
It was not, by and large, a
show of unwilling subservience.
That was the tradition in the
South, where historically life has
been a little more genteel, a little
less rushed, than in the Nawth.
That is not an attack on New
Jersey-Americans or other
Nawthunuhs, many of whom I
count among my friends.
"Yes, Sir" and "No, Sir" and
"Yes, Ma'am" and "No, Ma'am"
started falling into disuse during
my children's generation. Mary
and I okay, maybe it was just I
- tried to instill that habit in our
children, with varying degrees of
success. One of our daughters did
it to humor me, the other to
amuse me; the words are not syn-
onymous.
I served two years in the active
Army, a culture in which "Sir"
and (infrequently in the early
1960s) "Ma'am" were mandated
by a code called military courtesy.
When courtesy is mandated, it


loses a bit of its impact, and when
I got out of the Army in 1964, I
swore I would never address
anyone as "Sir" except perhaps
my father and, as a Florida
National Guardsmen, "those offi-
cers appointed over me." Their
number was legion.
But Clyde Gibson every-
body under the age of 50, or
maybe 70, addressed him as Mr.
Clyde who was my insurance
agent, addressed all males as
"Sir," even me. It was a little
strange at first, but I quickly real-
ized that it was a gesture of
respect he showed toward every-
one, regardless of station.
Not altogether proud of my
brief resolve to drop courtesy
titles, I instead chose to emulate
Mr. Clyde, and to this day,
address my wife, our staff, and by
all means our customers, by the
courtesy title appropriate to their
gender.
Early in my Guard career, I
remarked to 'an officer from
another state that I even
addressed senior NCOs as "Sir."
"You can't do that!" she
exclaimed.
"Oh yes I can," I replied.
"They're twice my age, and they
worked a lot harder for their rank
than I worked for mine."
I am reminded of the story of


the command sergeant major
who, in welcoming a new lieu-
tenant to the battalion, explained:
"Lieutenant, each morning when
we meet, I will salute you and say
'Good morning, Sir,' and you will
return my salute and reply 'Good
morning, Sir.' The only difference
is, you will mean it."
All this was brought to mind
by an article from The Dallas
Morning News, reprinted in
Mother Trib, about the almost lost
social grace of courtesy titles.
"There is a decline, but any
time you use it, you can't go
wrong," said Lynda White, who
operates a Dallas business called
Texas Etiquette.
She says that when she uses Sir
and Ma'am in New York, the
response is "You must be from
the South." That's not such a bad
thing to be accused of.
"People in the South have
always valued courtesy and
polite behavior," said Guy Bailey,
a linguistics expert at the
University of Texas at San
Antonio. Bailey grew up in
Alabama, where a steady diet of
Moon Pies and Arah-C Colas
clearly reinforced his under-
standing of the way things are.
Elaine Gathy, who runs the
Creme de la Creme pre-school in
Colleyville, Texas, said children


are taught to use "Mr." and
"Mrs." but not "Sir" and
"Ma'am."
"It's taboo and has kind of
died out," she said. "I would love
for it to be popular again."
Well, Ms. Gathy, Ma'am, as
one who teaches tykes in the
more-or-less Southern state of
Texas, you have my permission to
do your part to restore the tradi-
tion.
On the other hand, at the
Junior Cadet Corps in Fort Worth,
Texas, seventh and eighth
graders are required to address
their superiors with courtesy
titles.
"If they forget, we drop them
for push-ups or have them write
an essay," Chief Warrant Officer
Jeremiah Marshall told the news-
paper. That'll teach the little
blighters.
At the Arlington, Texas, Police
Dept. Training Academy, cops in
training are required to use the
courtesy titles, and generally con-
tinue to do so after graduation. To
which, I might add, any police
officer who expects to be
addressed as "Sir" or "Ma'am" is
well advised to extend the same
courtesy.
There's nothing quite like
being addressed as "Sir" when
you're being handcuffed.


OUR READERS SAY

Escapee or Escaper (or Escapor)?


BARTOW Last week the
editor of The Polk County
Democrat wrote a column
lamenting the incorrect use of the
word literally. His agony
stemmed from the fact that peo-
ple use the word when they mean
the opposite or something close
to it. I liked that editorial because
I share this editor's (S. L.
Frisbie's) dismay at poor lan-
guage usage. It set me thinking of
some my own agonizing over
what is happening to our lan-
guage.
First, let me tell you that this
poor use of language is not really
recent. About 25 years ago I was
dismayed by the use of the word
"attendee." We have opposites in
the language such as donor and
donee. A donor is the giver and
the donee is the one given to.
In conformity with that lan-
guage rule, or convention, an
"attender" is one who attends


something, while an "attendee"
would be something or someone
attended or attended to. A shop-
per is one who shops and a
shoppee is whatever or whoever
gets shopped. A worker is some-
one who works and a workee is
someone who gets worked. A
swimmer, not a swimmee, is
someone who swims. It gets bad
because now I can't remember,
and this is important, which is
the mortgagor and which is the
mortgagee.
Anyway, I wrote to the well
known columnist James
Kilpatrick about it because I
knew that he was interested in
language. He sent a personal
reply, urging me to be patient. He
told me a story of how, when he
was a young reporter, he and
some of his colleagues com-
plained to their editor about the
use of the word "escapee." One
who escapes should be called an


escaperr," right? The editor
advised them to forget it because
the battle was already lost. Well,
think about it, when was the last
time you heard of an escaperr"?
But there are many places in
today's English where the speak-
er or writer uses a kind of oppo-
site of what is meant and yet
expects us to understand.
Youngsters who think something
is grand will refer to it as "bad."
People will say "I could care
less," when what they mean is
that they could not care less.
I was shocked when in San
Francisco I boarded a cable car
and saw a sign "Only two
standees on a step."
Well, as a lover of language I
find it very hard to be patient, so
once in a while I, like S. L. Frisbie,
have to sound off.
Literally.

Mark Felt: My Hero


Since I wrote this column sev-
eral weeks ago, I have been read-
ing up on Mr. Mark Felt, better
known as, "Deep Throat."
I am so pleased that he is now
getting the recognition he so rich-
ly deserves. I logged on to his
web site and read all sorts of
interesting things about "Deep
Throat" meeting with the two
reporters from the Washington


Post when Nixon was president.
Mr. Felt is scheduled to appear
on Meet The Press this coming
Sunday, July 17. He has to be one
of the most interesting men
around today. He had guts,! He
should have been a diplomat or
the head of the F.B.I. How he kept
everything to himself, I will never
know. This is a fascinating story.
He is now living in Santa Rosa,


Calif, with his daughter. There
was a picture of the two of them
in the paper last week at the door
of his home, giving the world a
big smile and a wave.
In a statement in the paper on
June 1, Woodward and Bernstein,
the reporters from the
Washington Post said, "W. Mark
Felt was Deep Throat, and helped
us immeasurably in our


Watergate coverage."
I was at the F.B.I. back then
and didn't know who Deep
Throat was. It is too bad Mark
Felt was never made head of the
F.B.I., but it isn't too late to
express our admiration to him.
Way to Go, Mark Felt!! You are
my hero!

the past few days.


A first faint glimmer of hope
that the industry-wide phosphate
strike may end in the foreseeable
future appeared today. The

Manatee's Eyeballs May Help

Foretell Future in Florida


Courtesy of the
University of Florida
Health and Science Center
For Florida manatees, the
eyes may have it, say University
of Florida researchers studying
whether the mammals' unusu-
ally thick tear film helps protect
against disease and could be
used to gauge the endangered
sea cows' ability to fight stress,
from cold water temperatures.
Manatees depend on both
natural and artificial warm wa-
ter refuges like those found near
coal-burning power plants to
survive cold winters. As older
coal-burning power plants are
phased out in the next 10 to 20
years, researchers fear chronic
exposure to cooler waters could
weaken the large herbivores' im-
mune system, and they could
sicken or even die.
By sampling manatees' tear
film in addition to performing
other standard tests, scientists
think they might be able to more
efficiently evaluate manatees'
immune system function and
better determine strategies for
rescue, treatment and rehabilita-
tion.
The current tear analysis pro-
ject, believed to be the first of its
kind, builds on work UF veteri-
nary scientists published re-
cently in the journal Veterinary
Ophthalmology that described
the abundance of blood vessels
found in manatee corneas. Blood
vessels could have a tendency to
move into the cornea to supply
oxygen because the tear film cre-
ates a barrier so thick that oxy-
gen present in air can't pene-
trate it, said Don Samuelson,
Ph.D., a professor of ophthalmol-
ogy in the Marine Mammal
Medicine program at UF's Col-
lege of Veterinary Medicine.
Manatees are believed to have
the thickest tear film of any sea
mammal, and possibly of any


animal, Samuelson said. In gen-
eral, mammals produce tears to
protect against infection, be-
cause the eye itself does not have
immune system components.
"Through this protection
against the potential for infec-
tion, the manatee is able to enter
murky waters just rich with po-
tential pathogens," Samuelson
said. "For that reason, we think
this very thick tear film, un-
doubtedly rich with antimicro-
bial components, serves to pro-
tect in areas that could other-
wise be devastating."
Researchers speculate that
tears, which can be collected
without removing manatees
from the water using a small,
soft cotton swab, may one day be
used along with or instead of
blood tests to assess health
status and to gauge whether the
mammals were recently exposed
to health threats such as red
tide. Ongoing UF studies are ex-
ploring the relationship between
the tear film and blood vessel
formation.
"One of the findings of our
earlier work was that there is
absolutely no pathology involved
in the formation of these mana-
tee blood vessels, which in other
species occur predominantly be-
cause of trauma or disease,"
Samuelson said. "So the question
is, why do these mammals have
such thick tears that corneal
blood vessels form naturally,
even in the fetus?"
Samuelson collaborated with
Roger Reep, Ph.D., a UF profes-
sor of neurology, and Jenny Ha-
roer, Ph.D., a recent doctoral
graduate who is now an assis-
tant professor at Coastal Georgia
Community College. Together
they examined 26 eyes from 22
individual manatees and con-
structed 3-D images of the cor-
neas.
"We've completed the evalua-


tion and mapped the blood ves-
sels, so we know where within
the cornea they are located and
how many there are," Samuelson
said. "Our next goal is to start
examining the tears and evalu-
ate them with regard to the
whole animal's health status."
He added that the recent
study clearly documented the
fact that these blood vessels are
present, do not appear to inter-
fere with manatee vision and ap-
pear to be a part of manatee
anatomy beginning in the em-
bryo.
'With that in mind, we are ex-
amining the tears to see what
they exactly consist of, particu-
larly with regard to the anti-in-
fectious component,"
Samuelson said. "This may even-
tually be an opportunity to ex-
amine an individual manatee's
state of health with regard to
their immune system by analyz-
ing their tears."
Tear analysis is being used in
human ophthalmology and is in
its early stages in veterinary
medicine, he said.
Kendal Harr, D.V.M., assis-
tant director of UF's Marine
Mammal Medicine program, is
collaborating with Samuelson on
a large federal Fish and Wildlife
Service research initiative to as-
sess the immune function of
manatees at Homosassa Springs
State Park. She is coordinating
sample and data collection for
the UF veterinary college as part
of the project.
"We suspect that manatees'
thick, mucusy tear film likely
contains proteins, such as anti-
bodies, that would prevent bacte-
ria and other pathogens from
causing disease," Harr said. "We
are currently developing qualita-
tive assays to measure antibod-
ies in blood as well as in tear
film and milk."

Lost and Found
Pet Site
Looking
To Expand
Globally

More than 80,000 pets go
missing every day with only 18
percent of them ever getting re-
turned. These vulnerable little
members of our families are
traumatized without a means in
which to communicate how to
get them back to their families.
The web site is located at
www.thepetrescue.com.
The Pet Rescue LLC will send
lists of lost and found pets to all
veterinarians, pet shelters, and
pet-related centers for the local
areas. It is the only service
which aggressively advertises all
lost and found animals with pho-
tos throughout the U.S. and
Canada.
They cooperate and exchange
help with all pet-related serv-
ices. They offer many free serv-
ices; listings of veterinarians, pet
shelters, adopt-a-pets which are
local to each state. Their site of-
fers a forum which allows pet
owners to exchange thoughts
with each other about anything
and everything.
They even have their own lit-
tle weekly magazine, Paw Prints
Weekly, which has animal-re-
lated news and helpful hints in
maintaining healthy pats.
"I think the problem has been
evident to many considering
more than 3,300 pets disappear
every hour in the U.S. alone,"
said Mary Heiler, managing
member. "But it takes a lot of co-
operative effort."
They are proud of being the
first of this much needed service
to promote the return of lost ani-
mals on such a broad scale utiliz-
ing cooperative efforts. Heiler ex-
pects The Pet Rescue to generate
such interest that volunteers
will be needed to assist to help
bring the pets back home to their
families.
They hope you won't be need-
ing their "lost and found pet"
service, but hope you will utilize
the other services available on
the site.

Water Pressure Report


(Continued from Page 1A)
Calculations take into account
the space and connections
between the buildings, so the
needed water flow is not cumula-
tive, resulting in a total 3,000
gpm flow needed for both build-
ings, according to Bridges' report.

Testing Scenarios
After collecting data on the
city's water system and the con-
ditions during the fire, the engi-
neering firm ran eight scenarios
to simulate flow and pressure
conditions:
1. Average daily water
demand
2. Average daily demand plus
3,000 (gpm) fire flow
3. Maximum daily water
demand
4. Maximum daily demand
plus 3,000 gpm fire flow
5. Average daily demand plus
4,750 gpm fire flow (amount the
three fire pumper trucks can
pull), with two high service
pumps running at the water
treatment plant
6. Same as above plus a third
high service pump
7. Same as #5, with a six-inch
valve closed on Church Street
8. Same as #5, with third
pump running and Church Street
valve closed

All the scenarios, except five
and seven, predicted that pres-
sure in the distribution system
near the fire remained above 20
pounds per square inch (psi), the
required residual amount. Based
on these results, the report says,
"it appears that the water distri-
bution system meets normal
design criteria (maximum day
plus 3,000 gpm fire flow)."
However, the report adds, the
system couldn't support the
4,750 gpm pumping rate of the
fire trucks with only two high
service pumps running at the
water plant. That amount could
have been available with all
three high service pumps run-
ning, but the other pump was
being manually turned off and on
at the plant.
The broken valve on Church
Street could have affected the
pressure a little bit, Bridges said,


perhaps a couple of PSI. The city
was aware the valve was broken,
he said, and Bridges assumed for
the report that the valve was
closed. It could have been partial-
ly closed, which typically hap-
pens when it is closed too tightly
and the stem breaks, he
explained.

Testing Results
Scenario models tested
showed that, assuming the
trucks were trying to pump the
full 4,750 gallons per minute,
"with normal flow conditions,
plus that amount of fire flow,
with the three high service
pumps, they still should have
been able to maintain 20 psi,"
Bridges said.
A problem appears to have
occurred when water plant per-
sonnel had to manually jockey
pump one every four to five min-
utes to keep the pressure from
building up to 80 psi.
When the pump was off, the
pressure dropped to 10 psi or so.
"That would be the pressure in
the water line underground,"
Bridges explained, "so when
they're trying to pump, they
could have pressure loss in the
hydrant and hose, and could
have been pulling negative pres-
sure," which could cause a hose
to collapse. That did happen dur-
ing on June 6, Bartow Fire Chief
Jay Robinson said.
The report also noted that
"Data from the water treatment
plant indicate that, during the
fire, flows ranged from 3,500 gpm
to 4,700 gpm, while model runs
predicted delivery flows of over
7,000 g p.m. This reduced flow
could be the result of a number of
factors; however these can not be
determined within the time
frame allotted for this cursory
model analysis."

Recommendations
The engineering firm made
four recommendations to the city:

1. Further investigate reasons
for differences between flow and
pressure recorded at the water
treatment plant versus those
predicted by the model, and
update the computer model.
The existing WaterCad com-
puter model was created in 1997.


Attorney General Charlie
Crist today warned Floridians of
a scam that requires "winners"
of a lottery or sweepstakes to
submit payments in order to
claim their prize.
The scam lures Florida citi-
zens, particularly elderly resi-
dents, into paying unnecessary"
processing" or "premium" fees in
order to collect the "free" prize.
The Attorney General's Office
recognized the growing trend af-
ter receiving numerous com-
plaints from consumers across
the state. The solicitation typi-
cally comes as an official-looking
document that promises thou-
sands or even millions of dollars
in cash.
The scam stresses the need
for immediate action, often re-
questing verification of personal
information or some other action
on the part of the recipient. The
document also states that a
small fee, usually between $10
and $20, must be submitted in
order to process the claim.
"Many people get so caught
up in the excitement of winning


that they don't realize these con
artists are lining their pockets
with money rightfully belonging
to the consumer," Crist said. "In
addition, consumers could be-
come victims of identity theft by
revealing personal information.
Floridians should immediately
be suspicious of any supposed
prize that requires them to pay a
fee in order to claim their win-
nings."
The companies solicit dona-
tions so aggressively that con-
sumers will receive several noti-
fications per week, or even per
day. A response to the notifica-
tions generates even more offers,
perpetuating a cycle of empty
promises and absent prizes. Con-
sumers should note that solicit-
ing fees to collect a "free prize" is
illegal, and they should not send
money to companies engaged in
this practice.
If you believe you have been
victimized by this type of
scheme, call the Attorney Gener-
al's Fraud Hotline at 1-866-9-
NO-SCAM (1-866-966-7226).

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE.

PERSONAL INJURY

5 35 00, w SO a sle- ood Sm


The Polk County Democrat


Several changes have occurred
in the wa+er system since then,
the report says, including reloca-
tion of the water treatment
plant, expanding the system
with installation of additional
water mains, revising the elevat-
ed water storage tank profile,
and decommissioning or taking
some wells offline.
Bridges also recommended
that the city: .
Check all valves along the
24-inch transmission main from
the new to the old water plant to
be sure they are fully open. Also
check that all other valves in the
surrounding area are fully open.
Check high service pumps to
verify that the proper pumps
were installed (horsepower,
impeller diameter and number of
stages). Develop performance
curves through field testing and
compare to manufacturer's pump
curves.
Check intersections of major
water mains to verify if the
mains are connected.

2. Develop a formalized
hydrant testing program with
annual testing at key locations
and all other hydrants on a
schedule.

3. Color code all hydrants in
accordance with recommended
practice of the American Water
Works Association.

4. Convert at least one high
service pump to variable frequen-
cy drive to allow automatic con-
trol of discharge flow and pres-
sure, instead of manual on-off
control during a fire.

The report is to be presented
to city commissioners on Monday.
City Manager Joe DeLegge said
he wouldn't comment on the
report until after that.
Fire Chief Robinson said
there were no problems with the
fire trucks or equipment on the
day of the fire. He had not seen
the engineer's report, but on
Wednesday confirmed that the
trucks could are rated to pull
4,750 gpm.
"If that amount of water is
available, that's what they can
flow."

Take Stock in Children Kids Hope United

Celebrates Decade of Service Launches New Website


Florida Lieutenant Governor
Toni Jennings and state law-
makers joined more than 1,000
Take Stock in Children students,
mentors, and sponsors at a cele-
bration to honor mentoring. The
Lt. Governor honored the men-
toring and scholarship program
as it celebrated 10,000 students
served and ten years of success.
Held annually, Take Stock in
Children's "Rally in 'Tally" recog-
nizes its mentors and demon-
strates the.impact of its scholar-
ship and mentoring program to
lawmakers in Tallahassee. Stu-
dents and mentors statewide
travel to Tallahassee each year
to meet their local legislators
and show their support for the
organization that is changing
the lives of low-income children
and working to break the cycle of
academic failure and poverty.
Jennings presented Champion
of Children Awards to Bank of
America, Publix Super Markets
and the GEO Group. The Cham-
pion of Children Award recog-
nizes companies who give of
their time, money and resources
to provide educational opportu-
nities to Florida's underserved
children.
The Florida Lottery, a state-
wide sponsor of Take Stock in
Children for eight years, spon-


sors the Take Stock in Children
rally annually. The Florida Men-
toring Partnership has recog-
nized the Florida Lottery for the
past four years for achieving out-
standing participation and lead-
ership for mentoring.
The event included state lead-
ers such as; Attorney General
Charlie Crist, Education Com-
missioner John Winn, and The
Florida Lottery Secretary Re-
becca Mattingly. Secretary Mat-
tingly is a member of the state-
wide board of directors for Take
Stock in Children.
Alfton Turner, a recent Take
Stock in Children high school
graduate spoke about how the
program has changed her life,
"I have had a lot of rain in my
life, but that is okay because
Take Stock in Children is my
rainbow. When I was promised a
college scholarship and intro-
duced to my mentor I realized
that I didn't need to possess ma-
terial things, Take Stock in Chil-
dren gave me everything I
needed to become successful,"
she said.
Turner told the students in
attendance to always remember
that their income does not deter-
mine their outcome.

In loving memory of Robert Lee
(Andy) Anderson who passed away
July 12, 1969. Have you ever lost a
loved one who was very close to
you? As we did 36 years ago to the
yonder deep and blue? Have you
known the heartache or ever felt the
pain or wept those bitter tears that
drop like falling rain? If you've
never had these feelings Then I
pray you never do. For when Jesus
takes a loved one, he takes a part
of you.

On July 20 Warner Southern
College will welcome 40 students
and five teachers from Tama-
gawa Seigakuin, a junior senior
Church of God high school for
girls in Tokyo, Japan, to partici-
pate in the Tamasei English Pro-
gram.
The Tamasei program is of-
fered for three weeks each sum-
mer and provides a faith-based
'cultural and educational experi-
ence for sophomore students.
"Tamasei provides a unique
opportunity for the mission field
to come to us," said Dr. James
Moyer, Chair of the Communica-
tion Arts Department and pro-
gram director. "The Japanese
place a high premium on educa-
tion and cultural and interna-
tional experience. More than 120
students compete each year to
participate. This is the 15th year
we have offered the program."
While on campus the students
will attend classes, practice con-
versational English, participate
in chapel services and experi-
ence a birthday party, Christmas
and Easter events. Cultural
tours are scheduled for them to


visit Historic Bok Sanctuary, Ep-
cot, Kennedy Space Center and
Islands of Adventure. Shopping
excursions will include Wal Mart
and Eagle Ridge Mall.
Journaling is an important
component of the Tamasei stu-
dents' learning experience. Each
student is required to keep a
daily journal to record her expe-
riences in words and pictures
and what she finds different
from her own culture. The jour-
nals are turned in at the end of
the program.
While housing for the stu-
dents is provided in the college
dormitories, two weekends are
spent off campus with a host
family.
"The home stay provides a
look at daily American life. We
are fortunate to have host fami-
lies who open their homes to the
students each summer," Dr.
Moyer said.
To learn more about the Ta-
masei English Program, call Dr.
James Moyer at Warner South-
ern College at 638-7267 or e-mail

Following the unprecedented
2004 hurricane season, the De-
partment of Environmental Pro-
tection (DEP) secured $180,000
in funding to help Florida's
drinking water and wastewater
facilities prepare for and recover
from disasters.
A web-based information net-
work established with the fed-
eral grant is already assisting
utilities, such'as those in Port
St. Joe and South Walton Beach,
following the landfall of Hurri-
cane Dennis along the Florida
Panhandle. A
"Using the lessons learned
during from the 2004 hurri-
canes, water facilities are now
better prepared for storm condi-
tions," said DEP's Division of
Water Resource Management
Director Mimi Drew. "Thorough
and thoughtful planning, along
with the sharing of resources,
can minimize problems and en-
sure an expedited recovery.
Utilities are already seeing the
benefits that new technology
provides. "
With the $180,000 federal
grant, DEP established the Flor-
ida Water/Wastewater Agency
Response Network (Florida
WARN) at www.flawarn.org.
The virtual clearinghouse for
water utilities facilitates the
sharing of emergency prepared-
ness and response equipment
like backup generators along
with information on mutual aid.
Since most water utilities do
not have the resources to pur-
chase, store and maintain back-
up power generators for every
pump station, a mutual aid ap-
proach, like an insurance policy,
helps to distribute the cost and
allows utilities to protect public
health and waterways by mini-
mizing service interruption and
more quickly bringing facilities
back on line.
In the wake of last year's hur-
ricanes, water facilities across
the state took monumental
strides to restore services. Most
affected drinking water and
wastewater facilities in Florida
were operational, serving cus-
tomers and protecting public
health and water resources in a
matter of hours or, at most, a
few days.
Last year, widespread power
outages led to shut downs of wa-
ter utilities in storm affected ar-
eas. Residents used alternative
sources of water until service
was restored. Altogether, 386


drinking water systems and 31
domestic wastewater facilities
were affected during the 2004
hurricane season.
DEP oversees more than
10,000 drinking water and
wastewater facilities in Florida.
The Florida WARN website is
managed by the TREEO Center
of the University of Florida un-
der contract from the DEP. For
more information, visit www.fla-
warn.org.

FRIENDSHIP AND SERVICE. Broadway serve the residents of Fort Meade. (Staff photo
Cafe has opened in Fort Meade. Owners Cheryl by Janice Jared)

Long Time Friends Open Broadway Cafe


Cheryl Lewis and Tammy
Schultz, good friends for years,
have taken up a new venture -
the Broadway Cafe, 119 West
Broadway in downtown Fort Me-
ade.
The two purchased the busi-
ness from Bettye Warburton who
had operated the restaurant and
called it Bettye's.
"We want to get the word out
that we are here, we want all our
friends to come so we can con-
tinue to offer delicious home
style southern cooking to folks in
Fort Meade and those passing
through," said Mrs. Lewis.
"We have daily specials,
chicken and dumplings, beef tips
and rice, good meatloaf, fresh
soup and a delicious fresh salad
bar," said Mrs. Schultz,
Both owners said they will be
offering a broader variety with
an improved menu in the future.
"We have excellent employees,
Marion Baker, who has cooked
here for 30 years, Silvia Benitez,
Maria Stinnett, Kathy Simpson,
and several part time employees
who make the business operate
smoothly," said Mrs. Lewis.


"We do not want to overwork
the employees we have now. If
we could find another crew as ef-
ficient as they are, we would
open longer hours," Mrs. Schultz
said.
Current hours for the restau-
rant are Monday through Friday
from 5:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. and
Saturday at 6 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Both owners also work every
day at the cafe and "wear all the
hats."
Both say they will not let the
wilds of business come between
their close friendship, and that
the thing they like best about
the venture is the friendships
with those in the community, the
relationships with regular cus-
tomers, the feeling one gets be-
ing a part of what's going on in
Fort Meade.
They enjoy their morning
regulars, whom some refer to as
the "Breakfast Club" or "Knights
of the Rectangular Table."
Their conversation, they say,
contains'a lot of the same sto-
ries, but with different endings.
Members themselves placed a
large shovel and a pair of high


top boots permanently, near
their table, which the owners
say, should be self explanatory.
It is thought Homer Shirley
must be the king of the table.
When he enters the door, who-
ever is in his seat at the head of
the table, promptly moves.
Mrs. Lewis and Mrs. Schultz
both said Don Marchman was
valuable to them, not only for
crowd control purposes but he
also helps serve coffee when the
table is full.
Tammy Schultz moved from
Sarasota 16 years ago. She and
her husband, Kenneth Schultz,
have two sons and two grand-
children, with one on the way.
She worked for Dr. Black for 11
years and began food service
four years ago.
Cheryl Lewis has been in Fort
Meade for 25 years and is mar-
ried to Richard Lewis. The cou-
ple has two sons between them.
She discontinued work with
an automobile dealership in Bar-
tow to begin this adventure.
For more information on the
restaurant or for take out, call
285-7077.

the increased prescription bene-
fit is projected to cost the coun-,
ty's health plan $567,000 per
year. That cost will be paid from
* a health plan surplus estimated
to be about $5.2 million at the
end of the fiscal year, he said.
If employees choose generic
drugs over brand name drugs,
the overall cost of the prescrip-
tion benefit will be lower, he
said. It also is expected to en-
courage employees to take pre-
scribed medications.
The county offers two health
plans.
The bi-weekly cost for single
coverage is $184.97 under one
plan, $180.97 under the other.
County employees pay 21 per-
cent of the premiums, and the
county pays 79 percent.
Kushner told the commission
that from 2000 to 2002, the in-
surance program lost about $12
million.
In the three years since then,
the plan has established a "plan
equity" of $11.2 million, and has
achieved adequate reserves for
the first time, he said, adding:
"The plan has completely turned
around."
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
cautioned that costs are bound to
increase in future years.

Now Is The Time To Check

Business Insurance Policies


Many business owners count-
ing their blessings after Hurri-
pane Dennis could be in for a
rude awakening if the next hur-
ricane damages their business.
That's because new construc-
tion codes and increased costs
For building materials mean the
cost to rebuild could be signifi-
cantly greater than the value of
their policy.
Many business owners found
that out the hard way after last
year's four-storm season. That's
why Florida's "Trusted Choice"
independent agents recommend
business owners meet with their
local agent before the next storm
strikes to make sure policy val-
ues and estimates are up-to-
date.
"Some business owners put off
dealing with insurance the same
way they put off going to the
dentist or getting a physical,"
said Scott Johnson, executive
vice-president of the Florida As-
sociation of Insurance Agents.
"But it's just not a gamble worth
the risk or the expense.
"If necessary business owners
can work with an appraiser or
contractor to get an accurate cost
per square foot to replace."
The Florida Association of In-
surance Agents offers business
owners these tips:
Make sure your business
has adequate business-interrup-


tion protection. A new national
survey conducted for Trusted
Choice agents revealed that
three out of four businesses don't
have business-interruption in-
surance or are confused about
what protection it provides.
Business-interruption insur-
ance pays for lost income should
a business be temporarily closed
because of storm damage, and
covers operating expenses that
continue after business has come
to a temporary halt such as rent,
salaries and operating at an-
other location.
Make sure you know what's
insured and what's not.
The basic policy form might
not cover outbuildings, signage,
security lighting and other spe-
cial property. Make sure these
items are identified and the ap-
propriate endorsement is added
to your policy.
If your business is depend-
ent on certain equipment to
function, look into "boiler and
machinery" coverage.
This old-fashioned sounding
coverage covers equipment
breakdown including computers,
air conditioning and refrigera-
tors.
For more information on busi-
ness coverage, visit www.trust-
edchoice.com and click on "con-
sumers."


-SunTrust Banks, Inc., has an-
nounced that it has made $24
billion in loans to low- and mod-
erate-income clients, minority
borrowers, and to small busi-
nesses in Florida over the past
five years.
"This level of community-ori-
ented lending not only compares
favorably to that of other large
banks, but is a clear indication of
our continuing commitment to
Florida's communities," said
Thomas Kuntz, chairman, presi-
dent, and CEO of SunTrust
Bank, Florida.
Kuntz said he anticipates that
SunTrust's community lending
in Florida over the .next five
years will exceed the $24 billion
level achieved over the past five
years.
SunTrust's $24 billion in
loans includes:
$8 billion in the form of
79,000 mortgage-related loans to
low- and, moderate-income bor-
rowers, minority borrowers, or to
people living in low- and moder-
ate-income neighborhoods. In-
cluded is $1.68 billion, in the
form of 14,000 loans, last year
alone.
$4.6 billion were other con-
sumer loans to low- and moder-
ate-income borrowers or those
living in low- and moderate-in-
come areas.
$10 billion in loans to small
businesses.
$1.2 billion in loans for com-
munity development purposes.
"We have long recognized that
helping ensure the social and
economic vitality of the commu-
nities in which we operate is con-
sistent with the interests of our
shareholders. In that context,
SunTrust Bank is committed to
serving low- and moderate- in-
come, and minority communities
in Florida and in all of the mar-
kets we serve. We are proud of
the job we do and the reputation
we enjoy with recognized com-
munity leaders," said Kuntz.
Kuntz also said that SunTrust
is proud to have received an
"Outstanding" rating from the
Federal Reserve Board for its
Community Reinvestment Act
programs.
Deana Lewis, SunTrust's
Florida Community Develop-
ment manager, said that Sun-
Trust maintains long-standing,
deep and positive working rela-


tionships and in many cases
holds leadership positions -
with more than 500 community
organizations throughout Flor-
ida.
The bank also invests in the
community development initia-
tives of many organizations with
proven track records, including
the Florida Community Loan
Fund, Community Enterprise In-
vestments, Inc., Neighborhood
Lending Partners, and Local Ini-
tiatives Support Corporation
(LISC), among others.
"We have always welcomed
constructive dialog with commu-
nity leaders to help ensure that
SunTrust is focused on where we
can make a real and a positive
difference," Ms. Lewis said.
SunTrust Bank Florida is
comprised of five banking re-
gions: Central Florida, North
Florida, South Florida, South-
west Florida, and Tampa.


First-Class Restaurant


Standards Established


For New BMA Terminal


Bartow city commissioners
want a first-class restaurant
- not a glorified snack stand -
at the planned new terminal
building at Bartow Municipal
Airport.
Urged by their consultant,
URS Corp., to create a "profile"
for the restaurant, commission-
ers outlined their vision for the
facility:
A restaurant that is open
seven days a week, serving three
meals a day on Friday, and at
least two meals breakfast and
lunch the other six days of the
week.
Table service and perhaps a
buffet line.
"Real" plates and silver-
ware, rather than disposable
plates and plastic utensils.
The commission, meeting as
the airport authority, instructed
Airport Mgr. Cynthia Barrow to
give first refusal to operate the
restaurant to Chris and Suzie
Scott, who operate Kathy's Too,
a small restaurant already on
the airport. If they decline the of-
fer, other operators will be in-
vited to submit proposals.
Commissioners have said they
hope the restaurant will attract
visitors to the airport, as well as
serve the needs of pilots and air-
port industrial park employees.
The 18,000-square foot termi-
nal building, with the restau-
rant, airport offices, flight opera-
tions, and a museum, will be lo-
cated at the apex of two run-
ways, where diners will be able
to watch planes arriving and de-
parting.

Building Sale
Not Completed

Mrs. Barrow asked commis-
sioners if, in light of the tight fi-
nancial condition of city govern-
ment, the city still plans to buy
the old Hi-Way, Inc., plant which
was purchased earlier this year
by the airport.


The Hi-Way property is adja-
cent to the main airport prop-
erty, and the city plans to pur-
chase it from the airport for
$840,000 to use as a warehouse
and operations center for the city
utilities department.
The building is deteriorating,
Mrs. Barrow warned.
"It's still in the budget,"
Mayor Leo Longworth said.
But the commission may have
to reduce the budget to eliminate
a shortfall of slightly more than
$1 million, Commissioner Pat
Huff said.
City Atty. George Dunlap said
the airport has not yet acquired
clear title to the Hi-Way prop-
erty, which was bought in a
bankruptcy proceeding.

Tenant Can't
Build Hangar

After listening at length to a
request from. an airport tenant,
Gerry Butterworth, to allow him
to build a 60-foot by 60-foot han-
gar building on the airport, the
authority turned him down.
Butterworth asked for rent-
free use of land for the building,
in return for which he would
give the building to the airport
after 10 years. He said he needs
the hangar to house his own air-
plane, and that he would do air-
craft maintenance in the build-
ing for other owners.
The building would be valued
at $33,000, he said.
Commissioner Rosie Thorn-
burg, who is chairman of the air-
port authority, said that the air-
port historically has wanted to
build hangars itself and rent
them to tenants. Mrs. Barrow
said that granting Butterworth's
request would set a precedent for
other tenants, and that the air-
port has a 50-foot by 60-foot han-
gar available for rental. The air-
port does not allow tenants to set
up repair businesses in hangars,
she said.


Butterworth said he might
also build a hangar on property
he now leases for his business,
Florida Aircraft Painting, which
he has put on the market.
"It's either that or move to an-
other airport," he said.
The commission voted unani-
mously to reject Butterworth's
request.

Security Contract
Is Renewed

The commission also:
Voted to renew the airport
security contract with Edwards
Airport Security for three years.
The renewal rate is $12.21 per
hour for the first year, with a
three-percent annual increase.
The airport also will pay Ed-
wards $537.62 per month for fur-
nishing a patrol vehicle.
Noted Mrs. Barrow's report
that the property appraiser's of-
fice has reappraised airport
buildings, and that the average
increase in valuations is 24 per-
cent. That will mean higher
property taxes for airport indus-
trial park tenants, as well as for
airport-owned property that is
not used for aviation activities.
Scheduled its Aug. 8 meet-
ing to begin at 4:30 p.m., an hour
earlier than usual, to review
plans and make further deci-
sions regarding the new termi-
nal building.

Classic Coach Works Moves
Into New Saddle Creek Location


Classic Coach Works, a Lake-
land company specializing in mo-
tor home makeovers, has ex-
panded into its new 3.5 acre fa-
cility at 3340 East Highway 92,
Lakeland.
Owners Dennis Stewart, mo-
tor coach specialist, and wife,
Bev Larson, 20-year professional
interior designer, have moved
their one-stop motor home up-
grade facility giving their team
of craftsmen new quarters in
which to service their nation-
wide clientele.
The new location will not only
allow more bay space for the mo-
tor homes being revamped, but
also provides a spacious interior
design show room of upgrade' op-
tions. Customers can select their
choices of design options includ-
ing flat panel LCD TV and sur-
round sound.
"Customers can usually make
all their selections in a half day,"
says Larson, "and customers
don't have to wait around during
the upgrade of their coach be-
cause Dennis contacts them
regularly with updates and pro-
gress reports."


Customers may start with
only a few items to upgrade or
enjoy the benefits of getting a to-
tally new interior without the
cost of a new luxury motor home.
Custom cabinetry can provide a
computer office/desk so that you
never have to leave your office, if
you don't want to. Included in
the upgrade options are: carpet-
ing; Halogen lighting; furniture
(sofa, J-lounge, pilot/co-pilot
seats); reupholstered chairs; wall
covering and power shades.
Other specialty items include
lighted, mirrored ceilings; ceiling
fans; air conditioner covers; rope
lights and vinyl ceilings.
Classic Coach Works was
founded in Lakeland six and a
half years ago and was pur-
chased three and a half years
ago by Stewart and Larson.

raising funds and awareness for
local charities.
MSM presents four events for

help raise funds to build a new
memorial tribute to officers slain
in the line of duty. After accom-
plishing that goal, the mission
was expanded to provide scholar-
ships for the children of slain of-
ficers as well as other Tampa
law enforcement dependents.
MSM will be providing logis-

Florida Wrestling Entertainment

League Kicks-Off July 22 in Tampa


After months of waiting and
weeks of speculation, the Flor-
ida-based wrestling league Elite
Wrestling Entertainment, has
confirmed it will launch Friday,
July 22, in Tampa at American
Legion Post #5.
Doors open at 7 p.m. with an
8 p.m. bell time. The Post is lo-
cated at 3810 W. Kennedy Boule-
vard in Tampa.
Longtime Florida promoter
Ron Niemi, who heads the event,
has confirmed that they will hold
an eight-man tournament at its
first show, entitled "Florida's
Strongest."
The final two names in con-
tention for the first ever EWE
Championship have just been
signed. Former IPW Heavy-
weight Champion and Florida
independent veteran "Iceman"
Buck Quartermain, and one of
wrestling's hottest prospects,
"The Shooter" Vordell Walker,


will fill out the eight-man card.
Both these athletes join the
list of competitors as EWE looks
to crown "Florida's Strongest"
"The Florida area has been
dying for a new direction and I
view this new promotion as what
has the chance to be the 'breath
of fresh air,'" said Niemi. "While
these shows will include several
familiar faces from my past pro-
motions, expect a completely dif-
ferent product from EWE. The
fat has been trimmed, per se,
and I am dedicated to re-estab-
lishing the Florida area with my
ideas."
The match will pit the win-
ners of two, four-man brackets
against each other. The sched-
uled wrestlers are:
Bracket A
"Modern Miracle" Steve Madi-
son vs. Jason Cross and "Ice-
man" Buck Quartermain vs. Ray
Gordy


Bracket B
Tommy Vandal vs. Erick Ste-
vens and "Master of the Back-
breaker" Roderick Strong vs.
"The Shooter" Vordell Walker
EWE has also confirmed dates
for July 29 in Sanford and July
30 back in Tampa.
"Our first double shot the fol-
lowing weekend will be huge, to
say the least," Niemi said. "Sev-
eral names have been contacted
and we'have already locked in a
talent from Japan and Canada
to wrestle that weekend."
Ticket prices for adults are
$10 in advance and $12 at the
door. Kids 10 and under are $5
in advance and $7 at the door.
Tickets are available on the
Web via PayPal at http://www.
eweflorida.com or over the
counter at the Jimmy's Sod Com-
pany and the Pitbull Gym in

events. Through the Prostate
Cancer Awareness program, mil-
lions of men have received free
screenings at testing sites across
the country, providing assistance
in early detection, which in-
creases survival rates.
MSM will provide marketing,
media, logistics and finish line
support for the year's event.
The third annual St. Pete
Beach Classic 10K and 5K will
be held on a new course and
venue due to the growth experi-
enced in year one and two. Bene-
fiting the St. Pete Free Clinic
and the St. Pete Beach Recrea-
tion Department, the St. Pete
Beach Classic draws runners
from around the Southeast.
The event offers a family
friendly weekend with a health
and fitness expo, community
beach bonfire and post race
party.
The Bay to Bay race was re-
introduced to the Florida run-
ning community in early 2005 af-
ter an eight year hiatus. More
than 1,500 runners took to the
streets to enjoy the time-honored
course, which runs point to point
on 1st Avenue South from Boca
Ciega Bay in the western section
of St. Pete finishing on The Pier
in downtown.
The race was a landmark
event in St. Petersburg for more
than 20 years before being dis-
continued in 1997.

By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
If your desk is like mine, then you're in
serious trouble.
Recently I walked into my office, and for
the first time noticed just how cluttered my
desk really is.
In fact, I had a hard time even finding my
desk. If a hurricane ever went through my
office nobody would notice; in fact, it might
straighten up in three seconds what has
taken me 30 years to mess up.
I was looking for an important paper I des-
perately needed. Why is it whenever I need
something it is the only thing I cannot find?
While looking for this paper, I found every-
thing else, including several bills I was sure I
never received, and two letters I wrote and
obviously never sent.
I also found 10 Christmas cards from
1995, addressed and stamped.
This presented me with a dilemma: should
I still send them, or keep them for this
Christmas.
After three seconds of serious pondering, I
decided to keep them for this coming
Christmas, which means I am a tad ahead of
this year's Christmas card marathon.
Having made this decision, I was left to
decide where to store the cards until
December for the time being, I decided to
leave them on my desk just until I find a prop-
er place to store them.
Time was passing, and I still did not find
the document I needed to mail immediately.
Wait a minute! There, among a myriad of
papers, was the library book I had been look-
ing for. Quickly checking the due data, I won-
dered if I keep a library book long enough, say
seven years, does it become my property?
Isn't possession 99 percent of ownership?
I think the overdue penalties are more
than what the book cost in the first place.
Again, just for the time being, I decided to


leave the library book on my desk next to the
Christmas cards. I promised myself I would
return it after I found the missing, all-impor-
tant paper.
Some people say a cluttered desk is a sign
of a creative mind; if that is true, I must have
the most creative mind in the country. With
all the accumulated clutter, one would think I
could come up with the cure for some dreaded
disease or something.
Perhaps I did and lost it in the confusion on
my desk.
After several hours of unproductive search-
ing, I stopped for a short break. Drinking my
coffee, I wondered just how many trees it took
to make all the paper piled on my desk.
Somewhere in the world, there is an area
missing a forest and it can be found on my
desk.
While on vacation this summer, I realized
just how much paper accumulates from the
daily mail.
There should be a law allowing only impor-
tant mail through the U.S. Postal Service.
Only mail I am personally interested in
should be put into my mailbox.
Nothing is more frustrating than looking
for important papers needing immediate
attention and coming up empty.
In the midst of my frantic search, I ran
across an interesting magazine article I pre-
viously clipped. I needed it three weeks ago to
illustrate my sermon.
I read it over and then placed it back on my
desk once again resuming my hunting expedi-
tion.
All along, I knew the object of my quest
was right before me. It had to be. Where else
could it have been? Where do papers go when
they are lost? Is there some place they con-
gregate until they are found? What do they do
while waiting? Do they play "Paper, Scissors,
Rock?"
A thought occurred to me: many people


search for things and never find them. In fact,
that is what religion is all about searching
for God. Some people spend their entire lives
trying to find God and never really find Him.
Seeing lives so cluttered with everything
seems so sad, especially when God always is
right before us. Unfortunately, the chaos in
many lives prevents people from really find-
ing Him.
The strenuous effort of going through so
much disorder discourages many people after
a while and they ultimately give up the
search. For the most part, religion plays a role
in this frustration by adding to the clutter in
some lives.
Sometimes finding what we are looking for
is hard because of all the stuff offered by reli-
gion.
If we could get rid of every thing but the
Bible, we could find God a lot quicker.
Through an Old Testament prophet, God
said to His people, "And ye shall seek me, and
find me, when ye shall search for me with all
your heart" (Jeremiah 29:13 KJV).
Getting rid of the clutter in our lives is just
one step toward finding God. Another step is
to develop a passion to know God.
The Apostle Paul had such a passion when
he wrote, "That I may know Him, and the
power of his resurrection, and the fellowship
of his sufferings, being made conformable
unto his death" (Philippians 3:10 KJV).
The only way to understand and know God
is through Jesus.
"Christ Jesus saith unto him, I am the way,
the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto
the Father but by me" (John 14:6 KJV).
I sat back, relaxed, and looked at the
papers on my desk.
"Aha!" I yelled as I finally found the paper.
Have you ever noticed the thing you are look-
ing for is always in the last place you look?

reason or another can no longer
live at home. The organization is
based on a 10-acre campus in
Auburndale and relies on charita-

Kidding or Exercising

Hostility
While there are many different types of humor, some
good and some bad, one of the things we too often find
humor in is making fun of others, or in ordinary parl-
ance, making others the butt of our jokes. This type of
humor is usually an exercise in hostility, and the person
who is the butt of the joke rarely fails to perceive that
the joke is a, thinly veiled attack in which, they are the
object of contempt or ridicule. When this person's feeling
are hurt, it is common for the offending party to say
they were just kidding, as if this somehow undoes the
damage. Saying that we were just kidding only adds
insult to injury, and if the person being made fun of
doesn't laugh it off after being told this, they are often
considered to be overly sensitive. Even jokes which don't
single out a particular person can be hurtful to others,
because they single out whole classes of people as
objects of ridicule. Racist and sexist jokes fall into this
category, as do dumb blonde jokes; blondes justifiably
take offense at these jokes, because they realize that the
insinuation of the joke is that all blondes are dumb. We
would do well to hold our tongue when we have some-
thing funny to say at someone else's expense. And, if we
have hurt someone's feelings with a joke at their
expense, instead of saying, "Just kidding," we should

Some scientists feel sure
there's a frozen lake lurking a few
feet under Martian sands.
A few years ago, photos of
Mars revealing lines in the sand
sparked speculation that these
might be small water washes,
causing hope to spring up for
finding life among the freezing
dunes and extinct volcanoes of
the red planet.
No one% expects to find' swim-
ming teams of little, green men or,.
the frightening hordes. of the'
recently revived "War of the
Worlds," but even the thought of
discovering a few Martian
microbes, dead or alive, is enough
to make the mouths of many sky
watchers water.
One report holds out the possi-
bility of robots with hole drilling
equipment landing on Mars to
investigate whether or not this.
theorized frozen lake exists.
And there are many other
questions: How old are these
lines in the sand?-.How could,
water be coming from an under-
ground lake, making miniature'
water washes, when the tempera-
ture of Mars is well below zero
andithe air is so thin that.exposed
water would evaporate immedi-
ately? 1 '' _
Then' there's, the most irmpor-'
tant question of all: "What'differ-
ence does it make?'" ,
Forgive me.
'Yesterday, Pauline and I

atmosphere' of this great above-
ground inland sea. "Why not
spend space travel money keep-
ing water clean in the lakes we
can see?"
To some, the reason for explor-
ing other planets is to discover
how life began, but evidence of
the work of our loving Creator of
this pleasant planet is all around
us.
In his book, "Countdown," G.B.
Hardy points out a number of sci-
entific facts: about the' earth and,
its-, relation to ,.our ,atmosphere
that demonstrate the Creator's
care, writing:
"We know the size of our earth
could not have been a thing of
chance. It is exactly the right size
for the sustenance of life. The,
height of the atmosphere is just.
right .a change by as little as
10 percent either way in the size
of our planet, and science agrees
no life could exist. As a matter of
fact, life on earth is only possible
because of an incredible number
of 'just rights.'"
An important part of God's
great plan for life on earth is His
provision of'bountiful, beautiful,
water, for which we should be
thankful every-day.
Water .also occupies an impor-
tant place, in the Bible and wa's
often.used.by our Lord to.demon-
'strate spir-itual truth.
He called fishermen to be His
disciples, was baptized in the
Jordan River and 'stilled a violent
storm on the Sea of Galilee,
where He had ministered from a
boat to a multitude gathered on
the shore.
He identified the cry within us
for fellowship with God as an
inner thirst and offered to quench
it .for those, who' respond to His.
love by faith (John 6:35). '
..The- Bible ends with a loving
invitation from the One who
cares about inner space to come.
and be satisfied: "And-let him
'who thirsts come. And whoever
desires, let him take of the water
of life freely" (Revelation 22:17).
