City To Hear Engineer's


Report on Water Supply


The Jacksonville engineering
firm that studied downtown
Bartow water supply and pres-
sure after the devastating June 6
fire that destroyed the one-time
Tate-Phillips Hardware and Ritz
Theater buildings on Main Street
will present its findings to the
city commission this afternoon.
Harold Bridges of Jones
Edmunds and Associates, Inc.,
will discuss the report at the com-
mission's 5 p.m. work session.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
ordered the study after firefight-
ers and witnesses to the fire said
that the water supply appeared to
be inadequate to fight the fire.
In his written report to the
city, Bridges said that the city's
water system is adequate to meet
"peak day flow plus the required
fire flow" based on "normally
accepted design practice."
The commission will hold its
work session at 5 o'clock at city
hall, and will reconvene at 6:30
p.m. for its regular meeting.
Other items on the agenda:
Discussion of three appoint-


ments to the citizens advisory
committee.
Consideration of nominating
a city official for the Municipal
Officer of the Year Award of the
Ridge League of Cities.
Presentation of
Neighborhood Watch awards to
the police and fire departments.
Consideration of changes to
the Internet use policy of the
Bartow Public Library.
Public hearings and final
reading of ordinances to:
(1) Annex 19.5 acres of land
west of Crown Avenue, north and
south of the railroad tracks. The
land includes the old citrus pro-
cessing plant, a convenience
store, and some vacant residen-
tial property.
(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
U.S. Highway 17 North, between
the Bear Creek Canal and the
rear entrance to Wal-Mart, from
conservation lands to C-3 (high-


way commercial).
(4) Approve the final plat of
Old Homestead Acres, a four-
acre, four-lot subdivision at the
northeast corner of Lyle Parkway
and E.F. Griffin Road.
(5) Eliminate automatic annu-
al increases in the charges for
water and sewer service, readopt
previously imposed increases,
and require individual notifica-
tion to customers and annual
adoption of ordinances increasing
rates. The change is being made
to comply with Florida law.
Consideration on first read-
ing of ordinances to:
(1) Annex 8.3 acres of land
south of Taylor Road and zone it
R-1 (single family residential, up
to 5.8 units per acre).
(2) Annex 6.7 acres of land
adjoining the 8.3 acres and zone it
R-1-B (single family residential,
up to 4.4 units per acre).
Local cable television telecasts
of commission meetings have
been moved from Channel 26 to

facilities, and have extended the
fees to non-residential construc-
tion, including schools.
The county acted in response
to a consultant's study, which rec-
ommended extending correctional
impact fees to non-residential
structures.
Impact fees are assessed on
new construction to pay for public
facilities, such as roads, schools,
parks and jails, that support
growth.
Commissioner Bob English
asked how the numbers would
change if the fees were based on
the assumption that houses will
last 50 years, rather than the 27
years used by the Internal


Revenue Service. The consultant,
Randy Young of Henderson,
Young & Co., said the difference
would not be great.
At present, the fee is $152 for
homes, and is imposed only on
residences. That fee is charged for
both site-built homes and mobile
homes.
Under the new plan, that fee
will drop to $131.84 for site-built
homes, $122.59 for mobile homes,
and $72.44 per unit for multi-
family dwelling units.
Commercial, property will be
assessed "its fair share," Young
said. Those costs range from
seven cents per square foot for
industrial plants and group living


homes to $1.48 cents per square
foot for restaurants, bars and
lounges.
Schools and colleges will be
assessed $1.01 per square foot.
The fees are based on the con-
sultant's assessment of the
impact on jails generated by each
type of development.
Asst. County Mgr. Lea Ann
Thomas estimated that the new
rate structure would bring in
about $2.2 million, compared to
$1.6 million under the residence-
only fee.
The new fee schedule goes into
effect on Oct. 1.


Commissioners Won't


Star on Polk Govt. TV


Polk County commissioners
will not be given an opportunity
to star in their own individual
television shows on PGTV, the
cable television channel operated
by the county.
Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson said he wanted the
opportunity to go on TV to oppose
a series of tax and fee increases
proposed by Commissioner Bob
English: to pay for hundreds of
millions of dollars in infrastruc-
ture forthe county.
Wilkinson said that English
had been given time on PGTV to
promote higher taxes and fees,
and he wanted the opportunity
for rebuttal.
English responded that he had
appeared in a panel discussion of
the Polk Vision agenda, which
calls for closing an "infrastruc-
ture gap" in county facilities. Polk
Vision has endorsed a package of
new or increased impact fees and
taxes.
Cindy Rodriguez, the county's
director of communications, out-
lined a proposal developed by the
PGTV advisory council in
response to Wilkinson's request.
The council's duties include keep-
ing the channel from becoming a
forum for advancing political
interests of individual office hold-
ers.
It proposed a "Commissioners'
Connection" program which


would feature a different commis-
sioner each month.
Each month's 30-minute show
would debut on the second
Sunday of the month, and be
repeated daily.
Commissioners seeking re-
election are not allowed to appear
on PGTV in the 90 days preceding
the election. The exception is the
telecast of the commission's
twice-monthly meetings.
Wilkinson said that
Commissioner Paul Senft was on
PGTV within 90 days of the elec-
tion in which he was elected to his
present term.
Senft replied that he took part
in a panel discussion of the indi-
gent health care sales tax, and
that it was the only time he had
appeared on the channel.
"I don't desire to be on there
every month," he added.
Senft moved to reject the
"Commissioners' Connection" pro-
gram, and. English seconded.
English said each commissioner
has a forum on PGTV twice a
month when the commission's
meetings are telecast.
Wilkinson, saying he could see
the handwriting on the wall,
joined in a unanimous vote to
scrap the concept.
Wilkinson then made a motion
that he be allowed to put together
a 30-minute panel discussion
show. Commissioner Sam


Johnson seconded so that the
motion could be discussed.
Senft opposed the motion, say-
ing that Wilkinson would select
both the topic and the panel
members.
"I think we're getting into dan-
gerous territory," he said.
Wilkinson said that several
constitutional officers appear reg-
ularly on PGTV.
"If you want to be upset with
somebody, be upset with me,"
County Mgr. Mike Herr told
Wilkinson. He said it was his
decision to allow the Polk Vision
show to be aired.
"PGTV is still a relatively new
concept," he said.
Wilkinson's motion to let him
air a panel discussion was reject-
ed on a 3-to-2 vote, with
Wilkinson and Commission Chm.
Jack Myers voting for it, Senft,
English and Johnson voting "no."

$425,000 Allocated


For Drainage Relief


Polk County commissioners
have allocated up to $425,000 to
rush flood relief for southeastern
Polk County.
They authorized an engineer-
ing contract with the Chastain-
Skillman firm to design a fix for
flooding in the area of Crooked
Lake, Lake Reedy, Lake Clinch,
County Road 17 (Scenic Highway)
and the Frostproof community.
The Saddlebag Lake Resort,
located eight miles east of Lake
Wales, has been particularly hard
hit.
Commissioners also autho-
rized expenditure of up to
$350,000 to implement the engi-
neering firm's recommendations.
Commissioners and residents
of the area said they believe the
answer will be to replace smaller
drainage pipes with a 48-inch
pipe.
Bryan Starford of the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District said that a
SWFWMD permit will be
required for an installation of
that size, but that the agency will
process the application "very
quickly" because of the emer-


agency need for better drainage.
The agency will evaluate the
downstream impact of dumping
that much more water into the
existing drainage system, he said.
Jeff Spence, the county's nat-
ural resources director, told the
commission that in the past year,
the county has received 75 inches
of rain, about half again more
than the average rainfall.
Lakes in southeast Polk are at
what is defined as their 10-year
flood stage, he said, adding:
"These lakes haven't been this
high in 45 years."
Scenic Highway south of Lake
Wales is flooding, and SWFWMD
has put an eight-inch pump in
service to keep the road open to
traffic, he said.
Two private contractors are
working on cleaning out Reedy
Creek, which will improve
drainage from Lake Reedy,
Spence said.
'There's nothing more we can
do on Crooked Lake," he said.
Some drainage through the
area is in open ditches, but in
some places, property owners
have installed and buried


BRICKS AND BLOCKS are all that remain of
two buildings which burned in the 200 block on
June 6. Antol Restoration is nearing completion of


drainage pipes believed to be as
small as 24 inches in diameter.
No as-built drawings have been
found to show where the under-
size pipes are located.
Spence recommended thatthe
county speriniup to $75,000 fpr a
study by Chastain-SkiU man, and
said that the city: of Frostproof
and SWFWMD each has agreed
to reimburse the county $25,000
of the cost.
Doug Wise, who lives in
Frostproof, urged the county to
find a long-range, solution to the
problem, and not simply put more
pumps in the area.
The water level in Lake Clinch
behind his home has risen 40
inches in the past few months, he
said, and is 18 inches higher now
than it was after last year's three
hurricanes.
He said a local contractor has
told Frostproof residents that a
48-inch drain pipe could be put in
place for $300,000.
Based on that estimate, com-
missioners approved expenditure
of up to $350,000 to implement
Chastain-Skillmai's recommen-
dations.

Neil Sadaka In Concert

July 23 at Cypress Gardens


Cypress Gardens Adventure
Park will host Neil Sedaka in
concert Saturday, July 23.
With more than six decades of
hits, Sedaka may be most known
for chart-toppers like "The Di-

to a world tour and CD.
And with the trend of every-

he has enjoyed a resurgence in
his popularity with appearances
on the "Today" show and "Ameri-
can Idol" in recent years.
The concert will start at 7

DEP Sets Up Hydrogen

Back-Up Power System Children Can Help Parents Quit Smoking


As hurricane season gets un-
derway, the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP) is purchasing 12 hydrogen
fuel cell systems. Operating on
pure hydrogen with zero emis-
sions, the systems will provide
pollution-free backup power for a
dozen DEP offices around the
state.
"Using hydrogen as a renew-
able power source decreases
America's dependence on foreign
oil, protects air quality and di-
versifies our economy," said DEP
Deputy Secretary for Regulatory
Programs and Energy Allan Bed-
well. "These state-of-the-art fuel
cell systems use existing, proven
technologies to deliver reliable
backup power in case of a service
interruption. They will also pro-
vide simple, cost-effective envi-
ronmental benefits."
The GenCore is a five-kilo-
watt fuel cell system that oper-
ates on hydrogen, producing wa-
ter and heat as byproducts. The
fuel cell systems will convert the
hydrogen gas into electricity and


provide backup power for DEP's
offices during an electricity in-
terruption with reduced operat-
ing costs and zero emissions. The
systems will be purchased from
Plug Power, Inc., and warranted
for two years.
"We commend the state of
Florida for taking a leadership
position in promoting the use of
hydrogen-powered alternative
energy systems," said Mark
Sperry, chief marketing officer,
Plug Power.
"This purchase represents
Florida's commitment to clean,
renewable energy, and specifi-
cally hydrogen fuel cells. Our
fuel cells can endure the harsh-
est weather conditions and will
provide critical backup power
during Florida's stormiest sea-
son. We are pleased to be a part
of their initiative and look for-.
ward to making this the begin-
ning of tomorrow's hydrogen
economy."

In 1910, Victor L. Berger became the first Socialist
elected to the U.S. Congress. He was reelected
twice before being convicted of sedition for
opposing U.S. involvement in World War I. The
U.S. Supreme Court reversed the conviction in
1921, and Berger's Wisconsin constituents
reelected him three more times.
In 1919, Kentuckian General John Thompson
invented what became known as the
"Tommy Gun."
In 1938, Reader's Digest determined that smoking
was addictive. "Sooner or later, nearly every
cigarette smoker discovers that he is not smoking
by choice but by habit. He tries to break free of
it, but finds that he doesn't know how."


In 1636, the first university in the United
States received its charter in Massachusetts.
Three years later the new school was named
Harvard University, after philanthropist
and colonial clergyman John Harvard.

Sunday, July 24, is National
Parents' Day and the Smoke
Free Society urgently reminds
parents that they are the most
important role models in their
children's life.
If parents engage in self-de-
structive behaviors, such as
smoking, chances are their chil-
dren will too.
Research indicates that chil-
dren whose parents smoke are
twice as likely to become smok-
ers as children of non-smoking
parents.
According to the Federal Cen-
ters for Disease Control (CDC),
every day in the U.S., nearly
4,400 children between the ages
of 12 and 17 years start smok-
ing.
More than 6.4 million chil-
dren living today will die prema-
turely because of a decision they
will make as adolescents the
decision to smoke cigarettes.
"I was sadly troubled when I
witnessed a two year old child
imitating his father's movements
of lighting up and puffing on a
cigarette," Carla Wakeman, vol-
unteer for Smoke Free Society,
said. "How long will it be before-
that toddler is smoking for


real?"
One of the best things parents
who smoke can do to improve
their children's lives is to quit
smoking, and Smoke Free Soci-
ety can help.
Support is the key to help a
smoker quit and remain smoke
free.
As part of its "Save Your
Loved One's Life" campaign,
Smoke Free Society brings loved
ones together to help them quit
smoking. Its "Buddy System" al-
lows family and friends to work
with smokers through the entire
quitting process from prepara-
tion, to quitting, to follow-up
support.
"It was a joy to see my father
smoke-free after smoking for 50
years. Even though it took some
convincing and support from his
family, he was able to quit. His
nasty cough and constant throat-
clearing were gone, their home
and clothes smelt fresher than
ever before, he had more money
in his pocket and he looked
much younger in just a year af-
ter quitting. He was also much
more of a pleasure to be with,"
Rez Seyedin, founder of Smoke
Free Society, said.

According to the Environmen-
tal Protection Agency (EPA), ex-
posing children to the hazardous
poisons in secondhand smoke
can hinder the growth of their
lungs and put them in danger of
severe respiratory diseases, ef-
fects that can last a lifetime.
The National Cancer Institute
reports that about half of the
smoke generated by every ciga-
rette smoked is sidestream
smoke.
Sidestream smoke contains
the same carcinogens as main-
stream smoke, developmental
toxins .that alter the normal
growth of cells, and mutagens
that change cell genetics. And
according to Katherine Ham-
mond, PhD, University of Cali-
fornia at Berkeley's School of
Public Health, non-smokers re-
ceive the many of the effects of
smoking.
Children of all ages may visit
Smoke Free Society's website,
www.smokefreesociety.org, to
take the first step in helping
their parents quit smoking today
for a longer, better and healthier
tomorrow.

New Death Benefit Shows


America's Appreciation


The United States has made a dramatic
improvement in its commitment to the
families of Americans who serve in the
armed forces.
The "death gratuity benefit" paid to
families of members of the military who
die in the service of their country has been
increased from $12,500 to $100,000. That
eight-fold increase was made retroactive to
Oct. 7, 2001..
And the amount of life insurance that
members of the service may purchase in
the Servicemembers Group Life Insurance
program has been increased to $400,000.
SGLI insurance is available at nominal
rates, given the high risks associated with
military service.
Unfortunately, young soldiers, like
other young people, tend to think of them-
selves as invincible, and not all take
advantage of SGLI. That is their choice.
In recognition of that fact, the Dept. of
Defense will pay the premiums for the
first $150,000 of SGLI coverage for mem-
bers serving in a combat zone.
Obviously, $250,000 or $500,000 will not
take the place of a father, mother, son, or
daughter who dies in military service. But
it will provide a large measure of financial


relief for a family dealing with the tragic
loss of a loved one.
It is a fitting gesture of support and
appreciation from a nation to the members
of the armed forces who put themselves at
risk.
And while the first $250,000 comes from
"the government," government has no
money of its own.
The $100,000 death gratuity and the first
$150,000 in SGLI benefits comes from the
people of the United States.
Americans should take pride in that.

Governor of California:


A Part-Time Job?


We in Polk County, Florida, really don't
have much of a stake in the political lead-
ership of California.
We take only passing interest in the fact
that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger stands
to receive amounts variously reported at
from $5 million to $8 million for serving as
"executive editor" of two body-building
magazines for the next five years.
And we willleave it to Californians to


decide if it bothers them that the
Governator vetoed legislation opposed by
manufacturers of dietary supplements
who are major advertisers in the maga-
zines.
If Ah-nold actually is going to don a
green eyeshade as editor of these two pub-
lications, we stand in awe at the discovery
that the governorship of California is only
a part-time job.


THINKING OUT LOUD / By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
'If You Can't Quote 'Em...


In a craft otherwise known for
rugged individualism and inde-
pendent thought, journalists tend
to walk in lock-step on legal
issues affecting our vocation.
Chief among these is protec-
tion of anonymous sources.
To suggest anything less than
carte blanche support of this
practice borders on journalistic
heresy.
That makes me a heretic.
Use of anonymous sources
relieves both the reporter and the
source from insuring the absolute
accuracy of whatever is said and
reported. Granted, some
reporters, and some sources, may
not take advantage of tlis glaring
loophole in the quest for truth,
but it is available to every anony-
mous source and to every
reporter who relies on them.
I doubt that there are many
out-and-out lies told under the
anonymous source relationship,
but I suspect that exaggerations
and unproven suppositions are
common.
This newspaper for years' has
refused to publish unsigned let-
ters to the editor. It has raised the


tone of our letters. We have actu-
ally gotten a few letters that say,
in effect: "Mayor Bigshot is a
crook, a liar and a thief who
should have been put in prison
long ago. P.S.: Don't use my
name; I have worked for him for
20 years and he would fire me for
writing this letter."
The same principle of standing
behind your accusations applies
to quoting your sources.
The source presumably is
going to be pretty sure of his facts
when he's talking on the record,
and he's going to expect me to be
accurate in quoting him.
There is a difference between
quoting anonymous sources and
following up on anonymous or
confidential tips. (The difference?
An anonymous tip comes from
an unsigned letter or an unrecog-
nized voice; a confidential tip
comes from someone who identi-
fies himself or herself, but on the
condition that the identity not be
disclosed.)
I get my share of these, and fol-
low up on the ones which merit
inquiry.
One of the simplest, most


m w -


straightforward approaches is to
go to the public official who can
verify or deny the tip and say: "I
have heard such-and-such. Is it
true?" I generally get a straight
answer, and never less than a
half-truth. When I get a half-truth
and later find out that's what it
was, I go back to the person and
remind him.
Another approach, sometimes
even more effective, is to use
Florida's Public Records Law.
You get a tip about a memo or a
report, and you ask for a copy
under Florida Statute 119.
Simply the term "FS 119" may
produce a grimace on the face of
the person who hears the words,
but most public officials know
what the law says. For those who
don't, a quick call to their
agency's lawyer will confirm that
the record must be released.
It has been my practice, on
those rare occasions in which I
have relied on unnamed sources,
to use the phrase that our news-
paper "has learned." In other
words, I'm staking our reputation
for accuracy on this information.
If it's wrong (and it never has








Sd


been) the responsibility rests with
me, not with the anonymous
source.
That approach also avoids
waving a red flag, as in "Nanny-
nanny-boo-boo; I know some-
thing you don't know." I think
some reporters get a kick out of
that approach.
Some anonymous sources and
confidential tipsters have only
the public interest at heart; most
have an axe to grind. That is
okay; axe-grinders help keep the
system honest.
But it is incumbent on the
reporter to understand the
source's motivation, and to eval-
uate the tip in the light of the tip-
ster's self-interest.
This has been a long discus-
sion of the issue of confidential
sources.
My friend, the late Jack Lake,
long-time publisher of The St.
Petersburg Times, had a much
simpler seven-word policy:
"If you can't quote 'em..."
You're on your own for the last
two words.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Meet the Press? Ha!


I am really put out with Meet
The Press.
They had advertised during
the
past week that Mark Felt
would be on their program
Sunday. I
naturally thought he would
have something to say like
maybe "Hello."
Mark Felt is the man who was
known as "Deep Throat" during
the Nixon administration and I
couldn't wait to hear what he had
to say.
What he had to say was zilch.
After sitting through the repeti-
tious reports of missing lost girl
in Aruba, terrorism in London,
and 45 minutes of the usual com-
ments, personal opinions and
speculation, they gave Mark Felt
about 30 seconds of air time,
which showed him in the front
door of his home with his daugh-
ter waving and smiling. Not one
word was said, not one question
was asked or answered.
I may never watch Meet The
Press again. I definitely will not
believe their' advertising of com-
ing events.
I started out to write them a
letter complaining about this. I
already knew about the terrorists
in London, Afghanistan, and
where they came from. I keep the
news on most of the time just to
stay up with things, like the price


of gas, how many people have
been killed on the freeways, the
latest smoking bans, and who is
marrying / divorcing whom.
I don't care who is divorcing
whom. I gave up smoking 10
years ago when my friend, Larry,
rang the doorbell, took one step
inside the house and yelled,
"Why do you smoke? It's stupid


'bloe'


A Availab


T


and it stinks!" He should open
his own stop smoking clinic. He
would become independently
wealthy, if he isn't already.
I am fed up with women dis-
playing their belly buttons and
tattoos. They don't seem to have
a brain in their heads. They are all
over the tube on every channel.
What ever became of the real


broadcasters like Edward R.
Murrow? Huntley and
Brinkley? They have died and we
are left with a pack of idiots.
I am going to find out how to
send Mark Felt a bouquet of
posies. He is a very special per-
son to me. I feel like we were
robbed Sunday. I hope I get over
it.

Shady Oak Cafe Offering

Specials On Anniversary


To celebrate the third anni-
versary of Shady Oak Caf6 in
downtown Bartow, owners John
and Cory Alvarez are offering
specials every day this week and
on their anniversary day, July
19, every customer will receive
free cake for dessert.
On the surface, it doesn't look
like the Alvarezes have much to
celebrate. Their restaurant has
been struggling since construc-
tion began on the new
streetscaping project on Main
Street.
Then, when buildings on the
200 block of downtown caught
fire last month, it affected more
than the businesses that were


burned out. More than 20 cus-
tomers a day no longer lunched
at the restaurant, which features
family style home cooking.
These customers came from
John Jerue Trucking, which tem-
porarily located to Lakeland.
"We're hanging in there,"
John Alvarez said. "The
streetscaping will be really nice
when it's finished, we'll just be
glad when it's completed in No-
vember."
Shady Oak Caf6 is located at
195 E. Main Street. Along with
home cooking, the restaurant
also offers a catering service,
and may be reached at 534-9321.

CARLA BROWNING, nine-year-old Julien Hernandez, and
Mary Hernandez fan out the Downtown Dollars they received on
July 14. Ms. Browning and Ms. Hernandez both work' for Polk
County Facilities Management, where they made a pact with seven
other co-workers that if the dollars were won by any of them, they
would use the money to eat lunch downtown. (Chamber photo)

County Employees to Split

Downtown Dollar Winnings


It really pays to shop down-
town.
That's what nine Polk County
Facilities Management employ-
ees think now that they are the
recipients of $1,00 in Downtown
Dollars.
The actual winners in the
July 13 drawing were Carla
Browning and Mary Hernandez,
who both work at the county of-
fice, but a pact was made be-
tween nine of the staff that if
anyone won the prize, they
would split it and all have lunch
together downtown.
"When I first got the call, I
thought, oh good, that's five and
some change between all of us
for lunch," Ms. Hernandez said.
"Then when we got the call that
Carla had also won, everyone
got very excited."
Ms. Browning said they will
be going to all the downtown res-
taurants and picking up menus,
so the coworkers can decide


where the luncheon will be.
"If there's any money left,
we're going to the Cookie Jar,"
Ms. Hernandez said.
Downtown Dollars is a promo-
tion of the Bartow Chamber of
Commerce Committee of 100 and
The Polk County Democrat to as-
sist downtown retailers affected
by the streetscaping project and
last month's downtown fire.
The promotion will run for
one more week with a drawing
for four $50 shopping sprees.
The next drawing will be held at
Bartow Christian Books and
Gifts, 326 East Main Street, on
. Wednesday, July 20.
Coupons for the drawing may
be picked up at the 21 downtown
retail locations, the Bartow
Chamber, and The Polk County
Democrat.
For more information, call the
Greater Bartow Chamber of
Commerce at 533-7125.

Florida Trend magazine has
named John W. Frost, II, of Bar-
tow, to its 2005 list of the top 1.7
percent of lawyers in Florida.
Frost is included in a special
"Legal Elite" section of the July
issue, as one of only 136 civil
trial lawyers among its state-
wide "elite," and is the only Bar-
tow attorney listed.
Last October, the business
magazine began inviting in-state
members of The Florida Bar As-
sociation to cast their votes for
the state's top lawyers in their
fields.
"Attorneys were asked to
name lawyers whom they hold in
the highest regard lawyers
they have worked with or would
recommend to others," explained
Pat Dunnigan, the magazine's
law editor.
Frost is one of 958 in the com-
plete list chosen from all areas of
law practice. After original votes
were cast, nominated lawyers
were given a point rating based
on votes received and the voter's
position, whether inside or out-
side the nominee's own firm.

and history in the state profes-

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) is requesting information
and data on the biological status
of the bald eagle, gopher tortoise,
manatee, and Panama City cray-
fish.
The agency will use the infor-
mation during the first phase of
its review of listing petitions for
the four species.
During phase one, biological
review panels, consisting of FWC
staff and outside experts, will
conduct a biological assessment
of their respective species.
The commission established
these panels at its June meeting.
The panels will bring together
the most up-to-date information
and run the data through the
state's imperiled species listing
criteria to determine whether a
species should be classified as
endangered, threatened, or spe-
cies of special concern.
When biologically justifiable,
the panels may recommend a dif-
ferent classification.
"Right now we are looking to
gather scientific data and obser-
vations about the biology of
these species," said Dan Sulli-
van, who is coordinating the
FWC's review of the species. "We
will be seeking broad public in-
put during phase two, after we
complete the biological assess-
ments, but before the commis-
sion makes decisions about each
species' management plan, in-
cluding suggested regulations."
The FWC is specifically seek-
ing information on population
size and trends, distribution and
range, threats to the species,
published population viability
models, and specific aspects of
the species' life history that may
influence the status of the spe-


cies.
The FWC will accept written
submissions until 5 p.m.,
Wednesday, Aug. 31.
Those wishing to submit in-
formation and data should send
it to these addresses:

Be Aware Of Carbon

Monoxide Dangers


With hurricane season al-
ready busy, communities are
preparing for heavy rains and
wind.
As part of the preparation
process, individuals need to fol-
low the proper safety precau-
tions in the event of a power out-
age, since several dangers in-
cluding accidental carbon mon-
oxide (CO) poisoning arise
when electricity is lost.
During power failures, many
consumers turn to alternative
sources for electricity.
Among these power sources
are gas-powered generators, gas
grills, and wood and charcoal
fires.
As with any fossil fuel-burn-
ing appliance, if used improperly
or in cdhfined spaces, accidental
CO poisoning can result.
"Carbon monoxide poisoning
is a threat whenever gas-pow-
ered appliances are being used
or fossil fuels are burned," said
Mark Colello, senior vice-presi-
dent and general manager, BRK
Brands, Inc., manufacturer of
First Alert home-safety prod-
ucts. "But power outages during
a hurricane present a height-
ened risk because people tend to
forget basic safety rules when
they're rushing to restore power,
especially if they are dealing
with other aspects of a hurri-
cane's aftermath."
Carbon monoxide (CO) is an
invisible, odorless and tasteless
by-product of the incomplete
combustion of gas, oil, wood, coal
and other fuels.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention,
CO poisoning claims more than
500 lives and sends another
15,000 people to hospital emer-
gency rooms for treatment each
year in the United States.


In fact, more people die each
year through unintentional CO
exposure than from any other
single poison, reports the Jour-
nal of the American Medical As-
sociation.
The following safety tips will
help families avoid CO and other
dangers associated with power
outages:
Never run a generator in-
doors or in a poorly ventilated
area such as a garage or porch,
and use the appropriate-size
power cords to carry the electric
load.
Install a minimum of one
battery-operated CO alarm (or
AC-powered alarm with battery
backup) outside each sleeping
area, and for maximum protec-
tion install at least one CO
alarm on each level of the home.
Ensure that CO alarms
have working batteries installed.
Never burn charcoal or
other outdoor cooking appliances
indoors or in the garage.
Inspect and clean any soot
and debris, such as bird nests
and paper, out of the chimneys,
flues and stacks.
Carbon monoxide is difficult
to detect without the help of CO
alarms.
Outward physical symptoms
of CO poisoning include head-
aches, dizziness, nausea, and
vomiting, symptoms that are of-
ten confused with the common
flu.
That's why the Consumer
Product Safety Commission
(CPSC) recommends installing
at least one UL-listed CO alarm
with an audible warning signal
near sleeping areas. UL-listed,
battery-operated CO alarms are
available in most major retail
and home-improvement stores.


The first "off-highway vehi-
cle," or OHV, trail system cre-
ated under the new T. Mark
Schmidt OHV Safety and Rec-
reation Act is now open for rid-
ers in Tate's Hell State Forest.
The OHV Trail System in
Tate's Hell State Forest will give
ATV and OHM users an opportu-
nity to ride their vehicles on
more than 150 miles of desig-
nated trails on existing forest
roads. While riding the trails,
forest users can expect to see
various ecosystems including cy-
press swamps, blackwater creeks
and pine flatwoods.
It is hoped that the availabil-
ity of this and future trails will
cut down on ATV and other vehi-
cle use in undesignated areas,
which results in damage to the
ecosystem.
The T. Mark Schmidt OHV
Safety and Recreation Act re-
quires each ATV and OHM to
purchase a title, similar to those
required by car buyers, prior to
riding on any public lands that
have a designated area for OHV
riding. The titles are available
through the Florida Department
of Highway and Motor Vehicles
at any county tag office.
The law provides that the title
fees be used to develop the OHV
trails. To ride on the new Tate's
Hell OHV Trail System, each
ATV or OHM owner will also
have to purchase an annual per-
mit at a cost of $50 per year (per-
mits are prorated for each quar-
