Permit

By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher *

Officials of the Cedar Trail
Landfill on E.F. Griffin Road told
city officials privately this week
that they intend to apply for a
permit to allow dumping of "com-
mercial garbage" at the site.
At present, the landfill is limit-
ed to construction and demolition
debris and yard trash. It cannot
take kitchen scraps, disposable
diapers, and other forms of
garbage.
That would change if it got a
permit from the Florida Dept. of
Environmental Protection to
accept "commercial garbage."
Commissioner Brian Hinton
met this week with Mike Frost,
manager of the landfill, and his
lawyer, Ron Clark.
Hinton said that when the city
entered into an agreement with
the landfill operators several
years ago to resolve a federal law-
suit, the agreement prohibited
the dumping of "household
garbage."
Cedar Trail's position is that it
didn't restrict dumping of "com-
mercial garbage."
"They're looking at a loophole
somebody didn't close several
years ago," Hinton said.
"On that basis, they are appar-
ently in the process of applying
for a permit from DEP, probably
in October, to take in commercial
garbage," Hinton said.
"They are planning on doing it,
and from what they related to me,
they think they can do it because
of the old agreement.
"I don't know; I'm certainly not
a lawyer.
"I told him: 'You don't think
you're going to get opposition on
this?' He said he was sure they
would. He said they would be
required to cover it up every day,
and there won't be any noxious
odor."


'Save a Ton
Of Money'

"Their pitch is that the city will
save a ton of money by not having
to drive to the county landfill."
Hinton said there was no dis-
cussion of how the landfill opera-
tors would determine whether
garbage came from commercial
dumpsters or homes.
"They're required to give
Bartow 45 days notice before fil-
ing with DEP. He wanted the
commission to know ahead of
time what they are doing.
"He didn't really ask for sup-
port from the city. The carrot he
threw out is the dramatic eco-
nomic savings for the city of
Bartow for dump fees.

"He said he thought Bartow
could save $1 million a year."
Hinton said the city may look
at the economic advantage of hav-
ing a garbage dump within the
city limits, but added: "I don't
consider us as being for sale."
The Cedar Trail officials told
him there is another 25 years of
capacity in the existing landfill,
but said that with expansion to
the west, that life of the facility
could be extended, Hinton said.
"I would not want it in my back
yard. There are a lot more people
living out there than when it first
came up," Hinton said. "I would
think all those people would have
a vested interest in turning it
down."

Will Seek
Class I Permit

City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
met with Mike Frost and Guy
Thompson from Cedar Trail.
He said the operators will
apply for a permit for a Class I
landfill, which accepts garbage.
Under terms of the federal court
settlement, any modification to
the landfill requires that the city
be notified, he said.
He said no mention was made


of how the operators would deter-
mine whether the garbage came
from commercial sites or homes.
"It was more of a courtesy type
of discussion," he said.
"They said they plan to put the
garbage cell to the west of the
present construction and demoli-
tion landfill.
"They said they want to work
with the city, and there could be
savings to the city if this happens.
"My comment was that I didn't
want to discuss any type of
arrangements at this time."
The Class I landfill "would be
open to anybody," not just the city
of Bartow, he said.

Got Permission
To Lobby

City Atty. George Dunlap told
city commissioners at their work
session on Monday that operators
of Cedar Trail wanted "to lobby
the commission" about changes to
their operations. He did not elab-
orate.
Dunlap said he had given the


operators his permission to lobby
commissioners individually,
something he has recommended
against in the past on "quasi-judi-
cial matters," such as zoning
issues that would come before the
commission. This issue is differ-
ent.
He said Cedar Trail does not
need the city's permission to
change the nature of the landfill,
because that permit would be
issued by the Florida Dept. of
Environmental Protection.
What the business wanted was
to get the endorsement of city
government, or at least an agree-
ment not to contest the applica-
tion, Dunlap said.
"You can make them come to a
public meeting and talk about it,"
he told the commission.
Commissioner Rosie
Thornburg said 'on Wednesday
that she and Commissioner Andy
Laurent have appointments to
talk to the landfill officials next
Monday.
Mike Frost, manager of the
landfill, did not return calls seek-
ing information for this story.


Groundbreaking Set

For Carver Gymnasium
A Bartow Chamber and City of Bartow groundbreaking ceremony
for one of Bartow's newest projects will be held Tuesday, Aug. 9, at
9:30 a.m. at Carver Recreation Center, 520 S. Idlewood Avenue.
Carver Recreation Center's phase one project is a new g mrnrasium,
to be built where the old swimming pool used to be.
The contract has been awarded to Everett Whitehead and Sons of
Winter Haven.
Ryan Whitehead, vice-president of the company, said the 13,000-
square foot gymnasium would be built in nine months.
The original Carver Center was founded in 1952 with construction
of a swimming pool, followed around 1960 with a meeting hall with a
small stage, and a small kitchen.
That building is commonly referred to as the East-West Building.
The present Carver gym, built in 1970, is a multi-purpose building,
used for meetings and banquets as well as for basketball. The pool
was demolished a few years ago, because it was considered beyond
economic repair.
For more information about this or other Greater Bartow Chamber
of Commerce events, call 533-7125.


Parks Impact Fee Approved


'Firefighters To Be

Honored At Friday Fest


Firefighters will be honored at
this month's Friday Fest, set Aug.
19, on South Central Avenue in
downtown Bartow.
This event was posponed from
last month, due to rain.
I The event is held from 6 to 9
p.m.
Fire departments from Fort
Meade, Lake Wales, Lakeland,
Mulberry, Polk County aind
Winter Haven assisted the
Bartow Fire Department in bat-
tling the downtown blaze, and
will be honored for their efforts
during the event.
Polk County EMS, Bartow
Police Department, Bartow


Public Works and the city's water
department also assisted in the
effort.
In addition to honoring the
firefighters, the festival will fea-
ture food, drinks and children
activities.
IThis month, music from River
Junction Band will be featured.
Main Street Bartow, Inc.,
which sponsors the event with
the city of Bartow, is still seeking
local nonprofit food vendors for
the event.
For more information on the
event or to sign up as a refresh-
ment vendor, call 519-0508.


An ordinance imposing a
parks and recreation fee on new
homes and motel rooms built in
Bartow was passed on first read-
ing by the city commission on
Monday.
Unlike most impact fees,
which are collected to pay for
new facilities made necessary by
growth in this case, parks and
playgrounds and such -
Bartow's impact fee is called a
recoupmentt fee."
That is because the city's pre-
sent parks and recreation facili-
ties already meet the city's mas-
ter plan through the year 2025,
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge told
the commission. As a result, the
city will be able to use the
recoupment fees "in any lawful
manner as deemed appropriate
by the city commission."
The amount of the fee will
range from $908 for homes of less
than 800 square feet to $1,616 for-
homes of 3,600 square feet or
larger. Most homes will be
assessed $1,067, the fee for
homes from 801 to 1,399 square
feet.
Mayor Leo Longworth noted
that the city will charge $694 per
motel room. He also raised the
issue of waiving the fee for
"affordable housing" projects, but
joined in a unanimous vote to
adopt the new fee.
The impact fee ordinance will
come up for a public hearing and
final passage at the commission's
Aug. 15 meeting.
The commission also:
Established the city's tenta-
tive ad valorem tax millage at 4.5
mills, the same level as the past
year. That millage represents
$4.50 per $1,000 of taxable value.
The millage, and the proposed
city budget, will come up for a
public hearing on Sept. 6 at 6:30
p.m. At that meeting, the com-
mission may lower, but not raise,


the millage rate. Gerald Cochran
told the commission that the bud-
get "is a disgrace," and said the
city "has too many employees."
Noted DeLegge's report that
he is waiting to hear from a
bankruptcy trustee about dispos-
ing of property of the Oaks


School, which was located in the
old civic center, a city-owned
building. The school filed for
Chapter 7 bankruptcy in July,
and its assets will be liquidated.
DeLegge has told the commission
he intends to remodel the old
building as a city hall annex.


Referred to DeLegge a com-
plaint from John Dilworth, who
owns property at 410 Second
Ave., about drainage problems.
Passed on first reading an
ordinance amending the way the

Bartow Woman Attacked By Raccoon


They may be cute, but they are
dangerous, and a Bartow woman
found out how painful the bite of
a raccoon can be on Monday, July
25.
Barbara Lane was enjoying
the warm evening outside near
her back door at around 8:15,
when a raccoon appeared and
attacked.
Mrs. Lane was bitten on the
leg, and taken to the emergency
room for stitches and the rabies
shot series.
"I often see raccoons in the
area, not just in our yard, but in
other yards also. They are all
over," she said.
The Lanes, who live on
Orange Avenue, are particularly
worried about children traveling
to and from school in the area.
Polk County Sheriff's Office
Deputies were called to the
scene, but were unable to locate
the animal.
The Florida Fish And Wildlife
Conservation Commission offers
the following information to pre-
vent the spread of rabies:
Be a responsible pet
owner:
Keep vaccinations up-to-
date for all dogs, cats and ferrets.
This requirement is important
not only to keep your pets from
getting rabies, but also to provide
a barrier of protection to you, if
your animal is bitten by a rabid
wild animal.


Keep your pets under direct
supervision so they do not come
into contact with wild animals. If
your pet is bitten by a wild ani-
mal, seek veterinary assistance
for the animal immediately.
Call your local animal con-
trol agency to remove any stray
animals from your neighborhood.
They may be unvaccinated and
could be infected by the disease.
Spay or neuter your pets to
help reduce the number of
unwanted pets that may not be
properly cared for or regularly
vaccinated.
Avoid direct contact with
unfamiliar animals:
Enjoy wild animals (rac-
coons, skunks, foxes, etc.) from
afar. Do not handle, feed, or unin-
tentionally attract wild animals
with open garbage cans or litter.
Never adopt wild animals or
bring them into your home. Do
not try to nurse sick animals to
health. Call animal control or an
animal rescue agency for assis-
tance.
Teach children never to
handle unfamiliar animals, wild
or domestic, even if they appear
friendly. "Love your own, leave
other animals alone" is a good
principle for children to learn.
Prevent bats from entering
living quarters or occupied
spaces in homes, churches,
schools, and other similar areas,
where they might come in con-


tact with people and pets.
What to do after a possible
exposure (from the Center for
Disease Control)
If you are exposed to a poten-
tially rabid animal, wash the
wound thoroughly with soap and
water, and seek medical atten-
tion immediately.
A health care provider will
care for the wound and will
assess the risk for rabies expo-
sure. The following information
will help your health care
provider assess your risk:
The geographic location of
the incident
The type of animal that was
involved
How the exposure occurred
(provoked or unprovoked)
The vaccination status of
animal
Whether the animal can be
safely captured and tested for
rabies
Steps taken by the health care
practitioner will depend on the
circumstances of the bite.
Your health care practitioner
should consult state or local
health departments, veterinari-
ans, or animal control officers to
make an informed assessment of
the incident and to request assis-
tance.
The important factor is that
you seek care promptly after you
are bitten by any animal.

Laughs To Cure The

'Back-to-School Blues'


Pack up those beach towels
and sharpen those #2 pencils!
Summer is winding down and
the school year here, much to the
chagrin of many students.
For those kids who suffer
from the back-to-school blues,
poet and author Kenn Nesbitt of-
fers, with sympathy, this poem
from his most recent book "When
the Teacher Isn't Looking"
(Meadowbrook Press, $8.95;
www.meadowbrookpress.com)

I Can't Wait for Summer
I can't wait for summer, when
school days are done,
to spend the days playing, out-
side in the sun.
I won't have to study. No
homework, no tests.
Just afternoons spent on ad-
ventures and quests.

Instead of mathematics and
writing reports,
I'll go to the park and play


summertime sports.
Instead of assignments, report
cards and grades,
I'll get to play baseball and
watch the parades.

I'll swing on the playground.
I'll swim in the pool
instead of just practicing les-
sons in school.
The second, the school year is
finally done
I'll spend every minute with
friends having fuAii.

I can hardly wait for the end
of the year..
I'm counting the days until
summer is here.
It's hard to be patient. It's
hard to be cool.
It's hard to believe it's the
first day of school.' (Feature-

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

The Gospel According To Daddy


Editorial





Page





Dead or Alive,


You're Stuck on the List


America's national joke, the Do Not Call
List, has a macabre new twist.
The federal DNC law, which supposedly
stops junk phone boiler rooms from calling
people who have placed their name on the
list, is observed as faithfully as a 45 miles-
per-hour speed zone on an Interstate high-
way.
We have seen no decrease in junk phone
calls, despite a provision in the law for
thousands of dollars in penalties. The only
change we have observed is that more and
more junk calls are now recorded mes-
- sages.
The junk phone call industry now has
established a Deceased Do Not Call List, or
DDNC. It allows a family member of
someone who has died to place the
deceased's name on the list to stop junk
calls from being placed to the deceased.
While we do not make light of anyone's
death, it seems that dying is about the only
way to avoid junk phone calls.
The macabre aspect of the DDNC list is
that the industry wants to charge the sur-
vivor who makes this call $1 for the privi-
lege of having the deceased's name taken
off the sucker list.
This bizarre charge supposedly covers
the cost of verifying that the report of a
death is legitimate.
The only thing that mitigates the indig-
nity of having to pay a buck to prove that
someone in your family is dead is the
absurdity of the premise.
The junk phone call industry claims that
it doesn't want to waste its resources call-
ing. anyone who doesn't want to receive
calls. We'll put that one next to the folder
labeled "The check is in the mail."

OUR READERS SAY


The industry is incapable of taking a
hint. A range of responses from a courte-
ous "No thank you" to a curt "Not inter-
ested" is insufficient to get your -name
removed from a list that, under federal
law, it isn't supposed to be on in the first
place.
The fact that you paid off your mortgage
more than 10 years ago isn't enough to
stop callers from refinance agencies, some
of whom claim to have your mortgage,
record in front of them.
Apparently' even being told that the
uninterested prospect has gone on to his or
her greater reward is not enough to satisfy
the junk call boiler rooms.
They want proof.
We don't recommend lying as the solu-
tion to problems, but say you are willing to
fake Grampa's death (or your own) as a
way to cut down on dinnertime credit card
offers and cemetery lot sales.
Is it a crime to lie to a boiler room caller?
Let the industry spend its own buck to
find out whether you are dead or alive.

Animal Abuse Cases Are a Red Flag


NORFOLK, VA. Thank you
for your article, "Bartow man
charged with felony animal
abuse," (July 29).
Cases of animal neglect are
made all the more tragic by the
fact that without intervention,
they may repeat themselves. For
example, the relapse rate for ani-
mal hoarders, many of whom are
responsible for some of the most
egregious forms of animal
neglect, is near 100 percent,
according to Dr. Gail Steketee, a
professor at Boston University's
School of Social Work.


What's worse, offenders'
behavior often is species-blind.
While not everyone who neglects
an animal will do the same to a
family member, there are more
than enough of these cases to
warrant a keen awareness of their
connection.
Mental health professionals
and top law enforcement officials
consider the blatant disregard for
life and desensitization to suffer-
ing evidenced by animal neglect,
and all forms of cruelty for that
matter, to be a red flag. It is the
perpetrator's behavior, not the


victim's species, that is a concern.
For these reasons it is vital that
courts to take seriously this
alleged crime via vigorous prose-
cution, and if there is a convic-
tion, strict sentencing including
counseling and a prohibition on
contact with animals.

anguish for this man and he should
be forgiven. Why?
This "pre-emptive invasion"

Congressional approval or U.N.

After intense discussion with
a college professor (who is a psy-

Okay, I admit it.
Today, I'm being a little bit
lazy, putting forth minimum cre-
ative effort and instead reprinting
part of an E-mail forwarded to
me by my son-in-law.
With my little grandson Liam
approaching the age of 3, it
seemed particularly appropriate.
I am resisting the temptation,
the next time my number comes
up as Old Testament lector at my
church, to begin with a few
choice verses.

A Father's Lamentations:
Household Principles
For Children
(from the Old Testament)

Laws of Forbidden Places:

Of the beasts of the field, and
of the fishes of the sea, and of all
foods that are acceptable in my
sight, you may eat, but not in the
living room.
Of the hoofed animals, broiled
or ground into burgers, you may
eat, but not in the living room.-


Of the cereal grains, of the corn
and of the wheat and of the oats,
and of all the cereals that are of
bright color and unknown prove-
nance, you may eat, but not in the
living room.
Of quiescently frozen dessert
and of all frozen after-meal treats
you may eat, but absolutely not
in the living room.
Of the juices and other bever-
ages, yes, even of those in sippy-
cups, you may drink, but not in
the living room, neither may you
carry such therein.
Indeed, when you reach the
place where the living room car-
pet begins, of any food or bever-
age there you may not eat, nei-
ther may you drink.
But if you are sick, and are
lying down and watching some-
thing, then may you eat in the liv-
ing room.

Laws When at Table:

And if you are seated in your
high chair, or in a chair such as a
greater person might use, keep


your legs and feet below you as
they were.
Neither raise up your knees,
nor place your feet upon the
table, for that is an abomination
to me. Yes, even when you have
an interesting bandage to show,
your feet upon the table are an
abomination, and worthy of
rebuke.
Drink your milk as it is given
you, neither use on it any uten-
sils, nor fork, nor knife, nor
spoon, for that is not what they
are for; if you will dip your blocks
in the milk, and lick it off, you
will be sent away from my pres-
ence.
When you have drunk, let the
empty cup then remain upon the
table, and do not bite it upon its
edge and by your teeth hold it to
your face in order to make noises
in it sounding like a duck: for you
will be sent away from my pres-
ence.
When you chew your food,
keep your mouth closed until you
have swallowed, and do not open
it to show your brother or your


sister what is within; I say to you,
do not so, even-if your brother or
your sister has done the same to
you.
Eat your food only; do not eat
that which is not food; neither
seize the table between your
jaws, nor use the raiment of the
table to wipe your lips. I say
again to you, do not touch it, but
leave it as it is.
And though your stick of car-
rot does indeed resemble a mark-
er, draw not with it upon the
table, even in pretend, for we do
not do that, that is why.
And though the pieces of broc-
coli are very like small trees, do
not stand them upright to make a
forest, because we do not do that,
that is why.
Sit just as I have told you, and
do not lean .to one side or the
other, nor slide down until you
are nearly slid away. Heed me;
for if you sit like that, your hair
will go into the syrup. And now
behold, even as I have said, it has
come to pass.

Florida's Workers Comp


Rates Second Highest


Florida's Workers Compensa-
tion Law was established in
1935 to correct "a totally unfair
situation" in which workers in-
jured on the job were not enti-
tled to compensation unless they
sued their employer.
When that happened, they
typically were kicked out of com-
pany housing, their children
were kicked out of the company
school, and their "chits" at the
company.store were called in.
Today, Florida has the next
highest Workers Comp insur-
ance rates in the country, second
only to California.
Chuck Bentley, a board-certi-
fled Workers Comp lawyer, ex-
plained how the law works to the
Bartow Rotary Club.
The high cost in Florida, he
said, is because Florida law "en-
courages litigation," provides for
payment of lawyers' fees to
plaintiffs, and assesses 12 per-
cent interest on judgments.
"Strict liability is the prem-
ise," he said, meaning that an in-

jured worker doesn't have to
show negligence on the part of
the employer. In most on-the-job
injuries, the employer is respon-
sible for disability, whether tem-
porary or permanent, and for
medical expenses.
In return for that "strict li-
ability," employers who carry
Workers Comp are not responsi-
ble for other issues, such as pain
and suffering, Bentley said, and
cannot be sued for anything ex-
cept Workers Comp benefits.
"It's the most cost effective
way to avoid civil liability," he
said.
Workers Comp claims must
be paid within 14 days, he said.
Every workplace death must
be reported within 24 hours, and
the accident scene must be pre-
served until the appropriate gov-
ernment agency makes an inves-
tigation, he said. Bentley recom-
mended that whenever there is a
death or serious injury, the em-
ployer make a prompt investiga-
tion, and get names of everyone
who saw the employee on the


date of the accident.
Ninety percent of workplace
accident claims are straightfor-
ward and uncontested, Bentley
said. It's the other 10 percent
that can end up in court.
"Fraud happens every day" in
Workers Comp claims, he said.
"It's amazing what people will
say."
Two defenses against Workers
Comp claims are intoxication
and use of illegal drugs, though
in rare cases the courts have
held that these defenses do not
apply.
Employees are not covered
while enroute to or from work,
but a "traveling employee," such
as an airline crew member, is
covered during travel, even
when off-duty.
To hold down Workers Comp
premiums, Bentley said, employ-
ers -should make a, prompt inves-
tigation of every injury, should
emphasize training of employ-
ees, and should provide a safe
workplace.

Drive With Extra Care

During School Day


As students return to school,
AAA Auto Club South reminds
motorists to slow down and
watch out for pedestrians.
"Children get caught up in the
excitement of being back at
school, and forget to watch for
vehicles," said Kevin Bakewell,
senior vice-president of AAA
Auto Club South.
Many youngsters have trouble
making accurate judgments
about traffic speed and distance,
so drivers need to be particularly
aware.
Almost 20 percent of all chil-
dren ages 14 and younger who
die in motor vehicle crashes and
24 percent of children who are
injured in motor vehicle crashes
are pedestrians, according to the
National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration.
Drivers should be alert for
children who may dart out into
the street near school zones,
playgrounds, bus stops and in
neighborhoods. Children may be
especially vulnerable in areas
with heavy traffic volume,


parked vehicles on the street,
higher posted speed limits and
few pedestrian-control devices.
Here are a few tips to help
keep children safer:
Slow down in or near school
and residential areas, and be
sure to come to a complete stop
in all intersections.
Drive with your headlights
on even during the day so
children and other drivers can
see you.
Look for clues, such as
crossing guards, bicycles and
playgrounds, which indicate chil-
dren could be in the area.
Scan between parked cars
and other objects for signs that
children could dart into the road.
Pay extra attention during
adverse weather conditions.
Pay particular attention
around schools in the morning
and afternoon.
Always stop for school buses
that are loading and unloading

and helped to clarify relation-

Ms. Caroniti and Ms. Lewis

the Heritage Rose Foundation,

2004 regional Beta Beta Beta bi-

Bells are ringing at Bartow
High School, but cell phones
should not be.
Cell phones are not to be used
at all during the school day, a
staff member said.
Teachers have expressed con-
cerns about the number of par-
ents who place phone calls to
students during class time.
"That interruption affects all
30 students in that class, and
stops the flow of the teacher's
lesson," BHS Principal Ron Prit-
chard said. "For this reason, cell
phones are to be kept turned off
during the entire school day.
"We are emphasizing high-in-
tensity learning focus in every

he said. "We can give students

A call to the school office can

In recent meetings, teachers
and other staff also discussed
strategies for raising reading
levels at the school.
It was decided that teachers
in all subject areas will focus on
reading assignments aimed at
raising test scores and reading

"All teachers need to empha-

Out of My Range by Pawn Wade


Back to school is a happy time for parents.
The house returns to quiet during the day, and there
are no more complaints of "I'm bored."
And although the house will eventually be quiet again,
the morning can become a hectic time. With dressing,
gathering homework and eating breakfast, some times it
is just easier to send children off with lunch money.
But health is important, and when children become
older, trading for and simply buying unhealthy food can
become the norm.
And while the school attempts to provide nutritious,
balanced meals, we have all heard stories of middle
schoolers drinking a soda for lunch or getting double
orders of fries as a side dish for pizza.
Only the strangest child will be delighted by a lunch
full of veggies, fruits and whole grains, but most will eat a
lunch with many of the food groups covered, so long as
there's some sort of treat.
Here are a few tips to make a packed lunch a little more
palatable for children:
Ask your child what he would enjoy. Children are a lot
more likely to eat foods they have chosen and like. Allow
him to make one or two decisions about lunches, with final
approval from you.
Make lunch an event. Cut up a variety of veggies or
fruits into bite size pieces, or buy them cut. Include a
small container of peanut butter or dressing for dipping.
This also works with sandwiches. Instead of bread, use
whole wheat crackers, small cheese cubes and cut turkey
to make your own "Lunchables." Use whatever cold cuts
and cheeses your child likes, and top with half a cherry
tomato.
For older children, don't assemble the sandwich. Pack
the parts of the sandwich for your child to assemble at
mealtime. The sandwich tastes much fresher if assembled
at lunch.
Use whole wheat bread and pita pockets instead of
white bread on sandwiches. For some reason, whole wheat
bread just seems to hold up better in a lunchbox.
Additionally, it is much healthier.
Try yogurt with a few cut up strawberries and blue-
berries instead of pudding. With a little low fat granola,
your child may even enjoy this healthy snack.
Add veggies to the sandwich. A little broccoli slaw
tucked into a pita pocket instead of iceberg offers a nutri-
tional punch.
Pack 100 percent fruit juice instead of soda. Water
and bought milk also are good choices. Freeze packed bev-
erages to thaw and keep food cold during the day.
Add a little note or treat at least once a week. Your
child will appreciate knowing you are thinking of him.
Don't forget a treat. Children are children and should
enjoy the occasional sweet.
Try to pack lunches the night before, but on crazy
mornings, don't worry, just hand out the lunch money and
serve an extra veggie with dinner.
Recipes this week come from the Reynolds Kitchens,
www.reynoldskitchens.com, and www.meals.com.

New Pastor, Brian Wilcox, Joins

FM First United Methodist Church


First United Methodist
Church of Fort Meade has a new
pastor, Brian Kenneth Wilcox.
Wilcox joined the church this
summer. Prior to moving to Fort
Meade, he held a six-year pastor-
ate at Southwest United Meth-
odist Church in Gainesville.
A Southern Baptist for some
37 years, Wilcox has served the
United Methodist Church since
1997.
He has been preaching for 28
years, including many revivals,
several interim pastorates, and
five pastorates.
His education includes Jeff
Davis High (1978); Brewton-
Parker College. (A.A. in religion,
1981); The Baptist College of
Florida (bachelor's of ministry,
1983); New Orleans Baptist
Theological Seminary (master of
divinity, 1987; philosophy doc-
torate, Hebrew Bible and
preaching, 1990), where he was,
fellow for Dr. 'Billy K. Smith,
professor of Old Testament and
Hebrew, 1986-87; Mercer Uni-
versity School of Medicine (mas-
ter's in family therapy, 1999);
postgraduate work, University of
Georgia (1996).
Wilcox served as instructor of
religion at the Union Baptist
Theological and Literary Semi-
nary in New Orleans, 1988-90;
adjunct professor at Brewton-
Parker College in 1991; assistant
professor of Christianity at
Brewton-Parker College, 1991-
1996, where, in 1996, he was
elected to Who's Who Among
America's Teachers; and volun-
teer teacher of human develop-
ment and counseling at. Mont-.
gomery Correctional Institute in
Mt. Vernon. Ga., 1995-96.
He served on the Spiritual
Formation Team, Florida Con-
ference of the United Methodist,
Church in 2002, and again
serves in 2005.


He trained in contemplative
prayer and living 1999-2004, and
founded the Contemplative
Christian Fellowship in 2001. He
also established and led the In-
terreligious Enrichment Fellow-
ship in 2001 in McIntosh, Fla.
In 2003, Wilcox published "An
Ache for Union: Poems on One-
ness with God through Love." He

he hopes that OneLife will be-
come an outreach ministry to

ence on the Board of Shade and
Fresh Water, a ministry to
clergy and their families, provid-
ing retreat, counseling, and
spiritual direction. Likewise, he
serves Shade and Fresh Water
as a spiritual director.
"My particular focus in minis-
try is on spiritual formation,"
said the pastor. "I see different
ways of prayer and applying
spiritual disciplines as integral
to growth in the spiritual life."
As an interspiritual person
and pastor, Wilcox said, he ap-
preciates people seeking God in
traditions of faith, other than his
own,
"In our time, we live in a
global village, and respect for
different ways of faith is needful
for us to work together to help
make our world a safer place for
us all," he said.
This need, Wilcox added, is
even more the case with the rise
of terrorism.
"My overall goal in ministry


and life is to help persons experi-
ence the love, joy, and peace that
all of us seek for our world and
ourselves," he said.
Wilcox said his hope is that
the congregation of First United
Methodist will be known
throughout the community as a
place of prayer and compassion.
"I pray that the church I serve
will be known in Fort Meade as
a place welcoming all persons
and celebrating the diversity
that makes our community a
richly rewarding place to live
and grow together," he said.
Wilcox was born in Alma, Ga.,
on Nov. 8, 1960. He was raised
in a farming community in Jeff
Davis County, where his parents
and brother still reside.

Musings From God's Penman


eli


I


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
A man is not a man, in my
opinion, unless he has ade-
quately mastered the art of snor-
ing.
When I say mastered, I mean
to imply there is more to snoring
than the mere act of snoring. It
is an ancient art form passed
down from generation to genera-
tion; from father to son.
It is the one thing men share
in common and one of the few
pleasures left in life that doesn't
cost an arm and a leg.
Everything of late is too ex-
pensive, too fattening, or too po-
litically incorrect.
Once upon a time, a real man
could enjoy the simple pleasures
of life without any outside inter-
ference.
Ah, for those good old days.
Now, everybody and their
tree-hugging cousin want to tell
me what I can and cannot do. I
have yet to understand how this
simple practice of snoring can
jeopardize the environment.
I was to find out.
I know while sleeping I sound
like a chain-saw cutting down .a.
tree; however, no trees are ever
harmed in my dreams, although
I once saw a tree in my dream.
Actually, this must be a man
thing, and you know how few
men there are in this world of
ours today, which may explain
why snoring has gone out of
style of late.
Women in general and the
Gracious Mistress of the Parson-
age in particular do not share
this opinion. Her verbal essays
on the subject have crystallized
her opinion firmly in my mind..
And, if I had half a mind, I
would give her a piece of it. Be-


lieve me, I have plenty to spare
since I only use about a tenth of
my mind, or so the experts tell
me.
My wife's objection concerning
my snoring can be boiled down to
one. She alleges my snoring
keeps her awake at night.
I once, to lighten up the situa-
tion, bought her a pair of ear-
plugs for her birthday.
Let me just say that for three
weeks I was incapable of not
only snoring, but getting out of
bed in general.
Some people just can't take a
joke.
I will concede to several
things on this subject of snoring.
One, it is conceivable that
snoring could in fact be offensive
to other people, particularly if
that "other people" happens to be
sleeping in the same bed. My de-
fense on this point is quite sim-
ple if you are not able to go to
sleep because of the snoring, per-
haps you're not tired enough to
be in bed in the first place.
I know when I'm tired I can
sleep through a train wreck. In
fact, when I get awake in the
morning, my bed usually looks
like a train wreck.
And, do you ever hear me
complain?
Two, I will allow that snoring
can drive the other person crazy,
particularly if the snoring is out
of rhythm and erratic. I would
cautiously point out, however,
that it is probably a short drive
and perhaps you might want to
study the bus schedule for your
next trip.
Now, after those few conces-
sions, let me put a different spin
on this matter of snoring; and
may God have mercy on my soul.
The very first thing I want to

TRUE FORGIVENESS


One of the most difficult of human challenges can b, forgiving those
who have hurt us. Our hurt feelings usually inline us more toward
revenge than forgiveness. And at times, wie mav e'en feel that fairness
or justice requires us to punish those who have wronged us, or at the
very least, call upon them to give an account of why they. have acted in
such a way. Sometimes punishment is justified, and sometimes people
should be called to give an account of their actions, but that doesn't
mean we should not forgive them On the contrary, until we have truly
forgiven someone who has wronged us, we are held captive by the real
or imaginary wrong that was done to us; it gnaws awvay at us. eating us
from the inside out. The real and lasting value of forgiveness lies main-
ly in the way that it allows us to think about this negative event in a
more positive way. as an event that called foi'th mercy and forgiveness
rather than revenge and retribution True forgiveness is an act of God's
relations far better than justice or revenge


Give us this day our daily bread; And forgive
our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors

say is simply this: snoring is my
constitutional right. For more
than 200 years, men and women
have given up their lives to pro-
tect my right to snore.
At this late date, how can I
disregard their sacrifice? It
would be un-American to do so.
Our Constitution says some-
thing about the right to free
speech. Under this point, I have
never charged for my snoring. It
has all been given absolutely
free of charge, and I do not in-
tend to change this personal pol-
icy of mine.
So precious few things in this
world are still free.
Another point in our Constitu-
tion refers to the right to bear
arms. I assure you whenever I
am snoring, I fully bear my
arms. Moreover, I'm not
ashamed to admit it.
Recently, I have given some
serious thought to reforming my
opinion about my snoring. It all
revolves around a recent inci-
dent.
For several weeks, my good
wife had been complaining about
my snoring more than usual.
She suggested several remedies
such as sleeping strips across my
nose and nose sprays.
Once she even hinted at the
possibility of physical. harm to

To me, the only sure cure for
snoring is complete conscious-
hess at all times, but is it really
worth it?
Then something happened
that completely adjusted my at-
titude toward this entire subject.
On Tuesday morning, I awoke
with a start to find two of my fa-
vorite ribs wrapped around my
dear wife's elbow. The pain was
only matched by the dancing

menace in my wife's eyes as I ex-
tricated myself from her elbows.
Later that morning as I read
my Bible, I was able to put the
incident into some perspective.
To ignore my wife concerning
some aspect of life bears certain
consequences.
Ignoring God carries eternal
consequences, but when I open
my heart and life to Him, won-
derful things begin to happen.
"As many as I love, I rebuke
and chasten: be zealous there-
fore, and repent. Behold, I stand
at the door, and knock: if any
man hear my voice, and open the
door, I will come in to him, and
will sup with him, and he with
me." (Revelation 3:19-20 KJV).

Party


Neighbors on the 300 and 400 blocks of
Carpenter and Floral Avenue gathered for their
first End of School/Neighborhood Crime Watch
Party on June 25.
Bartow Fire Department's Engine One rolled
into the block party with firefighters/EMTs Jason
Villanueve and Mike Hancock, who gave demon-
strations on fire safety and the E.D.I.T.H. plan for
getting out of the house in case of fire, and also
passed out smoke alarm reminder stickers.
Children at the party enjoyed climbing aboard
the engine and passing through the large rear
seat area.
A few of the homes were without smoke detec-
tors, and before the fire engine pulled away, the
homes either had alarms installed, or they were
placed on a list to receive them.
It wasn't long after their demonstration was
complete that the firefighters had to leave with
lights and sirens running to answer a call.
But the party continued as all filled up on
grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, as well as sno-
cones and other refreshments, and kids young


and old enjoyed a moonwalk and waterslide.
Various businesses in Bartow donated items to
be used as raffle prizes, and the children were
given bags of goodies from the Department of
Transportation, local banks, and the Supervisor
of Elections.
Community Awareness Officiant Donna Harris
fingerprinted the children and presented them
with a fingerprint card to give to their parents for
safekeeping, as well as other goodies from the
Bartow Police Department.
Bartow Police Officer Michelle Smith and K-9
Vegas demonstrated his ability to catch and hold
a criminal by voice command. Officer Matt
Cromartie played the role of criminal in this
demonstration before some 60-plus people.
At a meeting of the Bartow City Commission
on July 18, Neighborhood Crime Watch block cap-
tains and the coordinator presented certificates of
appreciation to Officer Smith and K-9 Vegas,.
Officer Cromartie, Mrs. Harris, BPD Explorer Lt.
Autumn Joiner, and firefighters Villanueve and
Hancock, for their participation in the event.


Firefighter/EMTs Mike Hancock and Jason Villanueve rolled in and gave an exit plan
demonstration, plus a close-up look at the engine. They also made sure all the homes had
working smoke detectors before leaving the area.

heat while removing fallen trees
and covering damaged rooftops
with blue tarps for elderly, dis-
abled and low income families
impacted by Hurricane Dennis.
The AmeriCorps team has al-
ready assessed more than 4,600
homes for damage, removing
massive oaks and pines and

plary leadership during disaster
recovery following Hurricanes
Charley and Frances. Working
with the Army Corps of Engi-
neers, Florida AmeriCorps vol-
unteers spearheaded "Operation
Blue Roof," placing blue tarps on
damaged roofs for elderly, low
income and other special needs
hurricane victims. Over the
course of the 30 day mission dur-

served more than 10,000 hours,
covering more than 245 roofs.
Launched in 1997, Florida

tered by the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection and
operates in Florida's 159 state
narks and their surrounding
communities. In cooperation
with park staff, local organiza-
tions and schools, Florida Ameri-

9 Parks Join National Scenic Trail


WHITE SPRINGS Nine
state parks have been added to
the 1,300-mile Florida National
Scenic Trail.
In celebration of National
Trails Day, the Florida Park
Service joined national, state
and local leaders for a ceremo-
nial signing at the Stephen Fos-,
ter Folk Culture Center State
Park's Nature and Heritage
Tourism Center in June.
"Adding more trails, within
our state park system to one of
the most beautiful trail systems
in the nation demonstrates the
recreational quality of Florida's
award-winning state parks," said
Florida State Parks Director
Mike Bullock. "From walking
and hiking to biking and horse-
back riding, Florida's state trails
attract millions of visitors every
year and provide a healthy, en-
joyable outdoor experience for all
ages."
The National Scenic Trail
Ceremonial Agreement officially
certifies Blackwater River State
Park, Stephen Foster Folk Cul-
ture Center State Park, Suwan-
nee River State Park, Big Shoals


State Park, Olustee Battlefield
State Park, Gold Head Branch
State Park, Lower Wekiwa River
Preserve State Park, William
Beardall Tosohatchee State Re-
serve and Jonathan Dickinson
State Park as part of the Florida
National Scenic Trail.
Myakka River State Park,
Torreya State Park, Rock
Springs Run State Reserve,
Washington Oaks Garden State
Park and Hillsborough River
State Park are already a part of
the Florida Trail.
Designated as the Florida Na-
tional Scenic Trail in 1983 by
Congress, the Florida Trail me-
anders from Gulf Island Na-
tional Seashore near Pensacola
to Big Cypress National Pre-
serve near Miami and Naples. A
major statewide connector, the
trail today covers more than
1,300 miles and represents
nearly 40 years of work by the
Florida Trail Association.
Representatives from the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection's Florida Park
Service and Office of Greenways
and Trails joined the U.S. Forest


Service, Florida Trail Associa-
tion and local White Springs
community leaders to sign to-
day's agreement.
Nominated as a finalist for
the Gold Medal award honoring
the Nation's Best State Park
Service, Florida's state park sys-
tem is one of the largest in the
country with 159 parks spanning
more than 730,000 acres and
more than 100 miles of sandy
white beach. From swimming
and diving in rivers and springs
to birding and fishing or hiking
and riding on natural scenic
trails, Florida's state parks offer
year-around outdoor activities
for all ages. Battle reenactments
and Native American festivals
celebrate Florida's unique his-
tory, while art shows, museums
and lighthouses offer a window
into Florida's cultural heritage.

New Consumer Protection Tool


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist today an-
nounced the creation of a new
tool designed to provide consum-
ers with immediate updates on
fraud protection measures.
Through the new Consumer
Alerts service, citizens can sub-
scribe to an electronic notifica-
tion network and receive fraud
warnings directly as they are an-
nounced.
"In a world of rapidly chang-
ing technology, criminals are
constantly coming up with new
ways to pull off old scams," said
Crist. "This new service lets us
fight fire with fire by using the
latest in technology to help con-
sumers stay fully informed on
threats to their financial well-be-
ing."
By subscribing to the Con-
sumer Alerts service, citizens
add their e-mail address to a list
of individuals who will receive
instantaneous notification when-
ever the Attorney General's Of-
fice issues a warning or ndtice to
consumers. Consumer notices
are also posted to the Attorney


General's website, but prior to
the introduction of the new serv-
ice were not otherwise delivered
directly to consumers.
Citizens may subscribe to
Consumer Alerts by visiting the
Attorney General's website at
http://myfloridalegal.com and
clicking on the red "Subscribe to
the Attorney General's Elec-
tronic Newsletter and Consumer
Updates" link at the top of the
page. That link also offers the
opportunity for citizens to sign
up for other subscription services


available to the public, including
the Attorney General's weekly
electronic newsletter News
Briefs and the semi-monthly con-
sumer news publication Con-
sumer Bulletin.
The Consumer Alerts service
is the latest addition to anti-
fraud activities by the Attorney
General's Office. Since January
2003, the office has operated a
toll-free fraud hotline at 1-866-
NO-SCAM (1-866-966-7226),
which to date has handled more
than 148,000 consumer calls.
