"7 Taylor Road, Old Eagle Lake


Road Traffic Problems Cited


Residents of Sago Palms
renewed their plea to city com-
missioners to widen Taylor Road
and the Old Eagle Lake Road to
accommodate a growing number
of developments in the area.
But they did not oppose the
two most recent annexations and
residential developments. Bill
Konrad, the developer of two sub-
divisions located between Sago
Palms and the new Taylor Brooke
subdivision, has promised a tran-
sitional development with larger
homesites facing Sago Palms,
scaling back to smaller lots facing
Taylor Brooke.
Six related ordinances dealing
with annexation, land use and
zoning were passed on final read-
ing by the city commission
Monday night.
Konrad, who previously told
the city he will develop lots with
100 feet of frontage facing Sago
Palms, scaling back to lots of 90,
80, and 70 feet in three additional
rows of houses, said on Monday
that he may have a greater num-
ber of the large lots, because he is
finding a market for them.
The parcel facing Sago Palms,
comprising 6.7 acres, will be
zoned R-l-B, which requires lots
of at least 90 front feet and 10,000
square feet, while the 8.3-acre
parcel facing Taylor Brooke will
be zoned R-1, which allows 70-
foot lots and a total lot size of
7,500 square feet.
Diane Goss, who lives in Sago
Palms, said that Konrad's two
developments plus ." lor Brooke-

conjunction with National Night

event sponsored by the National
Association of Town Watch and

department. (Staff photos by

Subdivision will increase the
number of homes using Taylor
Road from 29 to 149. She said
both Taylor Road and the Old
Eagle Lake Road, onto which
Taylor Road discharges traffic,
are inadequate for that volume of
cars.
Tony Goss said: "Our main con-
cern is Taylor Road" and its inter-
section with Old Eagle Lake
Road. "No one's paying any con-
cern to Taylor Road. It's like a
poor stepchild."
Gordon Thompson of Sago
Palms said he and his wife moved
to Bartow from Orlando for a


small town lifestyle. "We look to
you to take good care of us," he
told the commission. "Make sure
growth happens in a way that will
protect us.
"Too many pristine areas have
gone under."
He asked who would be
responsible if new developments
caused flooding.
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
said that subdivision plans are
approved by the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District, and that subdivisions
designed to current standards
usually don't have flooding prob-


lems.
Konrad, the developer for the
two newest subdivisions, told the
audience: "These are valid con-
cerns. We will continue to work
with you."
Commissioner Brian Hinton
asked Konrad why he chose to
seek annexation, rather remain
in unincorporated Polk County.
"It was logical to deal with the
city; it's a good thing to do," he
replied.
The vote to approve the annex-
ation and development ordi-
nances was unanimous.


Mother, Daughter Die


In Two-Truck Crash


An Alturas woman and her
young daughter were killed
Saturday evening when their
pick-up truck was hit head-on by
another pick-up on County Road
17A near Lake Wales.
Kristen Sowell, 25, and
Savannah Sowell, 2, died in the
crash. Their husband and father,
Mark A. Sowell, 27, the driver,
was injured and taken by ambu-
lance to an area hospital, accord-
ing to Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper S. Stephens.
The Sowells were traveling
.north on CR17A in their 1991


Cheverolet Silverado shortly after
5 p.m. Saturday, and a 1999 Ford
F-250 pick-up, driven by David L.
Metheney, 35, of Lake Wales, was
headed south on the two-lane
road.
"For unknown reasons,"
according to FHP, Metheney trav-
eled into the southbound lane
into the path of the other truck.
Mark Sowell tried to steer his
truck to the right to avoid the col-
lision, but the two trucks hit
head-on at the edge of the road,
according to the report.
S.Metheney and his passenger,


Ruby Metheney, 66, were taken to
hospitals with minor injuries,
FHP reported.
Damage to each truck was esti-
mated at $8,000.
Mrs. Sowell was a pharmacy
technician at Walgreens in
Winter Haven. Funeral services
for mother and daughter will be
Friday, Aug. 12, at 10 a.m., at
Whidden-McLean Funeral Home
in Bartow, with Rev. Robert
Sowell officiating. Interment will
follow in Homeland Cemetery.


County To Reimburse


Abercrombie Lawyer Fees


Polk County commissioners
voted 4-to-1 to reimburse James
and Erin Abercrombie for lawyer
fees incurred by them in success-
fully chaHenging a land develop-
ment decision made by the coun-
ty commission.
For months, the couple has
asked the county to pay their
attorney fees, saying they went.
deeply into debt to fight the com-
mission's approval of a 39-home
subdivision near their home. The
court ruled in their favor, over-
turning the commission's
approval on a finding that it did
not comply with the county's
comprehensive plan. But the
judge did not award them lawyer
fees.
County Atty. Joseph Jarret
said he researched the issue


extensively, and got a six-page
opinion from Florida's attorney
general which said that under
narrowly-defined circumstances,
counties can voluntarily pay the
lawyer fees incurred by plaintiffs
in lawsuits against the county.
The attorriey general advised
that reimbursement is "generally
not required," but may be made
when the lawsuit "serves a stated
public purpose."
"We got a luke warm opinion
from the attorney general"
authorizing the reimbursement.
"I was hoping we would get a
definitive decision from the attor-
'ney general," Jarret said. "It's a
difficult decision for the board."
In a resolution approving the
reimbursement, the commission
declared that the Abercrombies'


suit "is found to serve a county
purpose" because it led to a find-
ing that the county's action was
inconsistent with the comp plan.
The resolution said that the
action "is not to be interpreted as
a policy" to pay attorney fees for
everyone who successfully brings
suit against the county.
Commissioner Paul Senft
moved approval of the payment,
and Commissioner Bob English
seconded.
Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson expressed concern
that developers could use the
commission's action as a prece-
dent for collecting lawyer fees
when suing the county over
development decisions.
At issue was a 39-home devel-
opment on 13 acres near the


Abercrombies' home.
"You give an attorney $90,000,
they can find something wrong
with just about .anything,"
Wilkinson said .:
He predicted that lawyers
would take cases against the
county on aw contingency fee
basis, hoping to. recover their fees
from the county. ..
He asked Jarret if the county
had ever spent $90,000 on a law-
suit, other than the county's
multi-million dollar lawsuit to
corrects major flaws in the court
house.
Commission Chmin. Jack Myers
said the county had spent more
than that in one other case, but

Democrat Wins 4 Weekly Awards


County Seeks Flooding


Solution Near Lake Wales


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

For homeowners living in the
flooded land on Peninsular Drive
south of Lake Wales, relief may
be coming, but how and when it
will come remains to be seen.
Homeowners first took their
plight to the city, which listened
with sympathetic ears, advising
homeowners to address the coun-
ty, since their homes are outside
the city limits.
Last Wednesday, they did,
with the support of Lake Wales
City Mgr. Tony Otte..
"Instead of fighting, we want
our homes back," resident Marcia
Mudd told the commission.
"We're all frustrated, and we


want an answer today."
Resident Tom Allen said he
has seen the water in Lake Belle
behind his home rise 10 feet in
the past year, and has since had
to battle water moccasins invad-
ing his yard.
"Our floors are rotting, we're
walking on plywood," he said.
'"We need help, and we have to
look to you for help."
Natural Resources Dir. Jeff
Spence told commissioners that
the area has about 12 to 14
homes threatened or flooded.
Some, but not all, homeowners
have flood insurance.
The two main problems with
the area, he said, are a lack of
historical data about the flood-
plain and ambiguity about where
the water was coming from.


Otte said the city is willing to
do what it can, which includes
reopening a canal, but he felt this
would be of little help in alleviat-
ing the problem.
"We're doing all we can do," he
said.
Spence explained that if the
county wished to pump away the
flood waters, pumps would have
to be rented, borrowed or bought,
at a conservative estimate of
$60,000 a month in operating
costs.
Commissioners instructed
Spence to continue to communi-
cate with the city, the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District, and residents to attempt
to develop a concrete plan and
cost estimates to bring back for
their consideration.


The Polk County Democrat
won four awards in the 2004
Better Weekly Newspaper
Contest conducted by the Florida
Press Assn.
The awards were presented at
the FPA's annual convention in
Key West.
The awards were:
First place for best editorial,
for an editorial captioned
"Homicide Is Not a
Misdemeanor." The editorial was
critical of a decision by
Hillsborough County prosecutors
to file only misdemeanor assault
charges against two men accused
of beating to death a Bartow
High School graduate, Matt
Lewis, at a party in Tampa. The
contest judge wrote: "Logical
argument. Can understand issue
without reading any other story."
Second place for sports col-
umn, for a Thinking Out Loud
column by S. L. Frisbie, IV, enti-
tled "The Real Pros Are at
College." It contrasted the action
of athletic directors at Clemson
and South Carolina, who decided
not to let their teams compete in
post-season bowl games because
of a fight that took place between
the teams, with the action of pro-
fessional basketball players who
whined when they were suspend-


ed for attacking fans. "Good anal-
ogy of two separate events," the
judge wrote.
Third place for website
development for The Democrat's
Internet website, PolkCounty-
Democrat.com. Webmaster for
that site and for the Fort Meade
site, FortMeadeLeader.com, was
Rustin Dwyer.
Honorable mention, equiva-
lent to fourth place, for communi-
ty service. That award was for an
editorial opposing a proposal to
increase the salaries of city com-
missioners automatically each
year. After the editorial was pub-
lished, commissioners rejected
the proposal.
In addition, The Lake Wales
News, another newspaper owned
by Frisbie Publishing Co., Inc.,
won third place for best photo
series in one issue. That award
was for a full page display of pho-
tos of the Bok Tower Sanctuary
taken by Sarah Grenier. The
same page was published in The
Democrat and The Fort Meade
Leader. The photos were taken
when Bok observed its 75th
anniversary.
In addition to doing photogra-
phy, Ms. Grenier is webmaster
for the News' website,
LakeWalesNews.com.


The FPA weekly newspaper
contest, one of the largest in the
nation, drew 2,410 entries from
88 Florida newspapers, compet-


ing against newspapers of com-
parable size.
Journalists from Michigan
judged the entries.

temperature Ichange? Should I
talk back to ghosts?

gance" are part of Ghost Hunt-
ing 101 scheduled for Sept. 12-
13, 14-15, 19-20, and 21-22.
Moon conducts a half-day ses-
sion, educating ghost hunters on
the tools and tricks of the ghost
hunting trade, sharing his exper-
tise for seeking out paranormal"
activity.
Guests will meet resident


ghosts, learning techniques and
devices used by the pros as they
enjoy a two night stay at one of
the inns.
Guests will be taken to the
hot spots of each inn with back-
ground information on the para-
normal investigations already
conducted by Moon.
Included in the Ghost Hunter
University package is a dinner
at A1A Ale Works, a guided after
dark walking ghost tour through
historic St. Augustine, a book, of
the ghosts of America's oldest
city and a subscription to

commodations, which includes
each inn's signature breakfast.

tion, call 1-877-616-6444.


Math isn't typically consid-
ered to be something that most
of us enjoy.
But the Online Math League
(www.onlinemathleague.com), a
new organization dedicated to
improving students' skills and
enthusiasm for math, is hoping
to change that. '
The online organization has
announced its first annual
"America Loves Math" contest
with $1,500 in college scholar-
ships.
Founded to generate enthusi-
asm for math in the classroom
and at home, the Online Math
League provides a series of math
competitions for third through
12th grade homeschoolers,
school teams, and individual stu-
dents.
After each competition, stu-
dent scores are immediately

Judge Rejects
Injunction On
Parental
Notification

A federal judge has rejected a
request for an injunction that
would have prevented the imple-
mentation of the 2005 Florida
Parental Notification of Abortion
Act, Attorney General Charlie
Crist said.
U.S. District Judge William
Stafford, based in Tallahassee,
ruled from the bench, enabling
the law to be implemented as in-
tended.
The plaintiffs sought to block
implementation of the law,
which was enacted after Florida
voters approved a constitutional
amendment stating that parents
or guardians should be notified.
whenever a minor child is to un-
dergo the medical procedures as-
sociated with a termination of
the minor's pregnancy.
Solicitor General Chris Kise
argued the case on behalf of the
Attorney General, contending
that the plaintiffs had not estab-
lished their entitlement to an in-
junction that would have prohib-
ited enforcement of the law.
Judge Stafford agreed.
"This is an important victory
for Florida's families, especially
parents who should have a voice
in vitally important health is-
sues concerning their children,"
Crist said. "The people of Florida
expressed their wishes through
their votes, and their will is con-
tained in this statute."

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

The Gospel According To Daddy, Part 2


Editorial

A Garbage Landfill Is


Incompatible with Homes


Over the years, our language has been more benign construction and demolition
tidied up in an effort to make a silk purse debris and yard trash, is subject to specu-
out of a sow's ear. nation.
Sewage is now "wastewater." Are coffee grounds and eggshells and
Sewage treatment plants are now orange peels household garbage? One
"wastewater recycling facilities." might assume so.
Garbage has become "solid waste." But if they come from school cafeterias


And garbage dumps have become
"landfills."
The new terms probably sound better on
resumes; more impressive to have been
employed at a wastewater recycling plant,
for example. .
And the technologies in these two essen-
tial areas of public service have advanced
dramatically.
But garbage is still garbage, and a land-
fill is where it is dumped.,
It is little short of mind-boggling that
operators of the Cedar Trail landfill on E.F.
Griffin Road plan to ask the Florida Dept.
of Environmental Protection for a permit,
to accept garbage.
When established as a construction and
demolition landfill, it was relatively isolat-
ed, though it .overlooked the Highland
Lakes subdivision. Today, it is adjacent to
what is shaping up as the fastest growing,
most densely populated residential area in
the city. .- '
In private meetings .ih yi o.f.fficials,
operators of Cedar Trail. have said that. the,
city could "save ,aton oi .money,'. y. ha,il.
ing its garbage to this landfill, rather than
to the county'landfill. The figure of $1 mil-
lion was mentioned to at least one city
commissioner.
City Mgr. Joe DeLegge has properly'
avoided negotiating for disposal of
garbage at.a site which presently does,not
hold a permit for that purpose.
A number of years ago, when 'a federal
lawsuit with the;previous owners of the
landfill was.settled, an agreement stipulat-
ed that the facility could never be used as
a site to- dispose of "household 'garbage."
Whether that was a' loophole intention-
ally written into 'the agreement by the
plaintiff's lawyer, or whether it was meant
to distinguish between garbage and, the


and community restaurants, they become
"commercial garbage," or so the line of,
reasoning goes.
Cedar Trail's position is that the agree-
ment with the city allows "commercial
garbage,".though we have heard no expla-
nation of how the landfill proposes to
inspect incoming garbage and figure out
whether it came from your kitchen or the
restaurant where you had lunch.
Can all the cities which would use the
landfill be relied on to segregate their
garbage according to where it came from,
passing up savings of "a ton of money" for
the stuff that comes from households while
taking only "commercial garbage" to the
landfill? We'll leave that answer to your
imagination.
Unfortunately, the city's permission is
not required to convert Cedar Trail from a
construction and demolition landfill to a
garbage disposal site. But the city can and
should work long and hard to get the state
to deny this application. .
...There's a right place for. every lawful
.lard.. .use, including sewage- treatment
plants and garbage dumps.
Neither belongs in a fast-growing resi-
dential neighborhood.

In my last column, I reprinted
one of the clever bits of humor
being circulated on the Internet.
It was Daddy's Laws, pro-
pounded in Old Testament style,
governing where food could be
consumed (i.e., not in the living
room) and rules for mealtime
behavior.
Those two sets of rules were
codified as Laws of Forbidden
Places, and Laws When at Table.
This second installment of the
Gospel According To Daddy
completes the scripture.

Laws Pertaining To Dessert:

For we judge between the
plate that is unclean and the plate
that is clean, saying first, if the
plate is clean, then you shall have
dessert.
But of the unclean plate, the
laws are these: If you have eaten
most of your meat, and two bites
of your peas with each bite con-
sisting of not less than three peas
each, or in total six peas, eaten
where I can see, and you have
also eaten enough of your pota-


toes to fill two forks, both forkfuls
eaten where I can see, then you
shall have dessert.
But if you eat a lesser number
of peas, and yet you eat the pota-
toes, still you shall not have
dessert; and if you eat the peas,
yet leave the potatoes uneaten,
you shall not have dessert', no,
not even a small portion thereof.
And if you try to deceive by
moving the potatoes or peas
around with a fork, that it' may
appear you have eaten what you
have not, you will fall into iniqui-
ty. And I will know, and you shall
have no dessert.

On Screaming:

Do not scream; for it is as if
you scream all the time. If you are
given a plate on which two foods
you do not wish to touch each
other are touching each 1 other,
your voice rises up even 'to the
ceiling, while you point 'to the
offense with the finger of your
right hand; but I say to. you,
scream not, only remonstrate
gently with the server, that the


server may correct the fault.
Likewise if you receive a por-
tion of fish from which every
piece of herbal seasoning has not
been scraped off, and the herbal
seasoning is loathsome to you
and steeped in vileness, again I
say, refrain from screaming.
Though the vileness overwhelm
you, and cause you to faint unto
death, make not that sound from
within your throat, neither cover
your face, nor press your fingers
to your nose. For even I have
made the fish as it should be;
behold, I eat it myself, yet do not
die.

Concerning Face and Hands:

Cast your countenance
upward to the light, and lift your
eyes to the hills, that I may more
easily wash you off. For the stains
are upon you; even to the very
back of your head, there is rice
thereon.
And in the breast pocket of
your garment, and upon the tie of
your shoe, rice and other frag-
ments are distributed in a manner

OUR READERS SAY

Astronaut Safety Is Management Responsibility


BARTOW Space travel will
never be free of risk. We need to
learn to manage the risks in space
flight to make it as safe as practi-
cal: We need to learn from our
mistakes and move ahead. Are
we doing -.-i? .
NASA's. space program has
had three disasters with loss of
life. ..
The first, on Jan. 27,. 1967, was
a fire on the launchr pad during a.
static test: of Apollo 1. A smalj fire
in the Apollo command module,'
aggravated by .flammable materi-
al and a pure oxygen atmosphere,
took three lives. Lessons were
learned and safety was enhanced.
The second was the launch of
Challenger on Jan. 28, 1986. A
gasket failure caused destruction
of the Challenger and loss of both
solid rocket boosters and seven
astronauts.
The third was the loss of
Columbia on Feb. 1, 2003, when
the spacecraft disintegrated dur-
ing re-entry. Wing damage sus-
tained'on launch caused the loss
of seven more astronauts.
The Apollo tragedy was an
accident which no one foresaw.
The nature of the fire made
escape impossible. The escape
and rescue procedures were not
workable. Accidents happen in


complex programs.
Challenger's launch was
scheduled for the morning of the
State of the Union speech. The
temperaturee was near freezing
'and several engineers voiced con-
cerns, about launchiinrg at such
k':. temperatures. The solid rock-
et boosters (SRBs) were manufac-
tured ,as segments which were
bolted, together to form large
rockets.., The segments were
.sealed by elastic gaskets similar
to 0O-rings.
The SRBs were recovered and
reused after each launch. Past
.launches had exhibited erosion of
the gaskets, but no complete
burn-through had occurred.. The
erosion, hi.:-.,e'.er, was tempera-
ture-related. The colder the SRB
was at launch time; the more ero-
sion was found: No shuttle had
.been launched .at 'this tempera-
ture before. Burn-through would
only be catastrophic if the flame
burned through a seam and hit
the external fuel tank.
It came down to a manage-
ment decision. Which manag-
er/engineer would say "Do riot
launch"?
If a manager stopped the
launch, he would never be able to
prove his decision was right and
his career would be ended. If he


said nothing and another manag-
er stopped the launch, he would
be safe and so would the mission.
If he said nothing and the launch
was a success, he would be a
member of a successful manage-
ment team. And if he said noth-
ing and the launch failed, he
would be a team player on a
failed management team, but
would not be singled out for
blame.
Changes were made to the.
solid rocket boosters,, but the,
management problems were not
fixed. Perhaps they never will be.
, Columbia was struck on
launch by a piece of thermal insu-
lation foam from the external fuel
tank. While foam had been flak-
ing from the tank in the past, no
serious damage had ever been
done, and the foam was consid-
ered too light to be dangerous.
When Columbia's wing was
struck by a rather large chunk of
foam on launch, the managers
did not' become overly con-
cerned.
There was no way short of a
special Extra-Vehicular Activity
(space walk) to check for damage.
When offered high resolution
photography by another agency,
the management team said "No
thank you." The cost of the pho-


tography would have come out
of the shuttle budget, which was
already tight. And there was no
provision for making repairs to
the shuttle in space.
Two-and-a-half years later,
there is a very good system for
inspecting the shuttle in orbit.
There are limited repair capabili-
ties to handle minor damage to
the shuttle before re-entry.
With all, of the improvements
made since the' disaster, why is
there no solution to the insulation
problem with the external fuel
tank? Astronauts take risks, but
those risks should be managed
well. The biggest problem that
has not'been -solved seems to be
the management system prob-
lem.
This problem is not exclusive
to the space program. Still, that is
no excuse for placing our astro-
nauts, or anyone else, at risk of
bad management decisions.

Thank you all for your accep-
tance of a brand new teacher just
out of college. You embraced me
fully as if you had known me all
my life, and you accepted me into
your community as one of your
own. Over the years, sincere car-
ing relationships !developed
among us all.
I have had a privilege not
awarded to all educators, which
was to have had the opportunity
to instruct a second generation of
children. Thank you for the honor
of your trust and respect.


It was difficult for me to disas-
semble my room of 32 years, but
it gave me an opportunity to see
everything in it with new eyes,
and carefully pack it away. Lynda
Belle Black, a home economics
teacher at Bartow High, in 1973
brought me a little "welcome"
gift for my classroom on my first
day of teaching. Her daughter
Meg was to be in my first sixth
grade class. Mrs. Black, the little
gift was the last thing I removed
when I left.
My last memory, I want to be


of the flowers and standing ova-
tion I received at our graduation
and awards ceremony. It seemed
like something that only hap-
pened in the movies, but it was
happening to me.
Bless you all for making my
life a charmed one for over three
decades. Keep growing. Mighty

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Hair


My hairdresser, Mr. Sonny of
Mr. Sonny's Haircare and Front
End Alignment Salon, passed
away some time ago, and I
haven't been to a hairdresser
since. I bought a. wig instead.
Then I bought another and after
that, a box to keep therm in. I grew
to like wigs and they sure saved a
lot of time.
I used to envy Miss Bernice
Lyle's hair; it was like the story of
her life red at the end and
gradually working up to the
scalp where it was white. She
wore it wrapped around and
around her head into a sort. of
turban. Miss Bernice taught
home ec and biology at


Summerlin Institute and I believe
she was-an Army nurse in World
War II. She was ramrod straight
and a very interesting person.
I hadn't thought about Miss
Bernice's hair until last week,
when I decided to go have my
hair done and get a permanent. It
was extremely long and sort of an
indiscriminate color. I gave no
thought as to what it would look
like when it was cut and curled.
Well, I found out! When the
hairdresser had finished, it
looked like a hair explosion in a
-"mattress factory.
Ever notice how the person
doing your hair always turns you
around so you can't see what


they are doing?
Now I know why. They want
to surprise you. Actually, I
believe they want to shock you.
When I got home, Sparky
growled at me. He got all stiff-
legged and backed up until he hit
the wall. I told him it was really
me, but I don't think he believes
it.
I now look like I stuck my fin-.'
ger in a light socket. I doesn't-,
bother me, but Sparky still
growls at me and backs up. My
hair is about the color of dande-.
lion fuzz. At least, it is out of my
eyes.

The taxpayer-supported Medi-
caid program will receive more
than $2.4 million for Florida as
part of a nationwide settlement
with a healthcare corporation
and a supply company it owns,
Attorney General Charlie Crist
said.
A federal investigation re-
vealed that Gambro Healthcare
and its supply company, Gambro
Supply Corp., improperly billed
both the federal Medicare pro-
gram and the individual Medi-
caid programs in each state.
Gambro operated a chain of
clinics that provided care for end
stage kidney disease, a terminal
condition that requires regular
dialysis treatment.
Gambro Supply was operated
as a shell company, which al-
lowed the parent company to bill
Medicaid for dialysis supplies at
a much higher rate than other-
wise would have been allowed.
"Defrauding Medicaid not
only steals from the needy, but
places an undue burden of re-
sponsibility on the shoulders of
Florida taxpayers," Crist said.
"This settlement will ease some


ence. DMD is commemorated the
third Wednesday of each Octo-
ber, in conjunction with National
Disability Employment Aware-
ness Month.
Interested mentors and stu-

The settlement resolves alle-
gations surrounding Gambro's
bogus Medicaid billings for renal
dialysis, unnecessary diagnostic
tests and associated medica-
tions, as well as allegations of
kickback payments to physicians
who refer patients.
The full amount of the nation-
wide settlement is $308.4 mil-
lion, most of which will go to the
federal Medicare program to pro-
vide healthcare for elderly pa-

A total of $36 million of the
nationwide settlement has been

How Much Do You Know About Speakers


Your Car's Cooling System?


A fairly common household
disaster is flooding of the laun-
dry area due to a split hose on a
washing machine. Also vulner-
able to a similar disaster is your
car.
A bulging radiator hose, car-
rying hot water (coolant) under
pressure, can rupture.
Cooling system neglect is
cited as a principal reason for
mechanical failure of a vehicle..
In addition to the danger and in-
convenience of a breakdown, the
damage to the engine and trans-
mission can add up to thousands
of dollars.
Discovering a leaking radia-
tor, hose connection, a sticking
thermostat or other cooling sys-
tem component that's on "bor-
rowed time" can save the life of
one's engine.
To underscore the importance
of proper care of the cooling sys-
temn, the Car Care Council offers
this multiple- choice quiz:
1. For maximum freeze pro-
tection antifreeze mixture
should be:
A. half anti-freeze and half


. water


B. pure antifreeze;
C. 70% anti-freeze, 30%


water.
2. In the cooling system the
thermostat:
A. controls engine tem-
perature;
B. works the air condi-
tioner;


C. modulates the diodes.
3. A radiator cap is designed
to:
A. keep water from slosh-
ing out of the radiator;
B. keep the cooling system
operating at a specified pressure;
C. last indefinitely.
4. A broken drive belt can
cause:
A. overheating;
B. loss of power steering;
C. dead battery.
5. Cooling systems on many
cars today:
A. have no water pump;
B. never need to be
flushed;
C. are equipped with an
electric fan on the radiator.
Answers to Cooling System
Quiz:
1. (C) is correct, although a
50/50 solution is adequate for
most climates, protecting to -34
degrees F. Never use pure anti-
freeze.
2. (A) is correct. As stated-
above, a faulty thermostat, caus-
ing an engine to run too hot or
too cold, can damage the engine.
3. (B) is correct. And when re-
placing the cap, be sure to install
the right one for your vehicle.
Pressure recommendations vary.
4. Because all three functions
are dependent upon the drive
belt (or belts) all three answers
are correct.
5. (C) is correct.

A medical alert was issued for
Polk County after a human case
of Eastern Equine Encephalitis
(EEE) was confirmed.
It takes from 4-10 days after
the bite of an infected mosquito
for an individual to develop
symptoms of EEE.
Symptoms begin with a sud-
den onset of fever, general mus-
cle pains, and a headache of in-
creasing severity.
Physicians should contact
their county health department
if they suspect an individual
may meet the case definition for
a mosquito-borne illness. DOH
laboratories provide testing serv-
ices for physicians treating pa-
tients with clinical signs of mos-
quito-borne disease.
DOH continues to advise the
public to remain diligent in their
personal mosquito protection ef-
forts. These should include the
"5 D's" for prevention:
Dusk and Dawn Avoid be-
ing outdoors when mosquitoes
are seeking blood. For many spe-
cies, this is during the dusk and
dawn hours.
Dress Wear clothing that
covers most of your skin.
DEET When the poten-
tial exists for exposure to mos-
quitoes, repellents containing
DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-to-
luamide, or N,N-diethyl-3-meth-
ylbenzamide) are recommended.
Picaridin and oil of lemon euca-
lyptus are other repellent op-
tions.
Drainage Check around.

Tips on Repellent Use
Always read label directions
carefully for the approved usage
before you apply a repellent.
Some repellants are not suitable
for children.
Products with concentra-
tions of up to 30 percent DEET
are generally recommended.
Other effective mosquito repel-
lents, as reported by the CDC in
April 2005, contain Picaridin or
oil of lemon eucalyptus. These
products are generally available
at local pharmacies. Look for ac-
tive ingredients to be listed on
the product label.
Apply insect repellent to ex-
posed skin, or onto clothing, but
not under clothing.
In protecting children, read
label instructions to be sure the
repellent is age-appropriate. Ac-
cording to the CDC, mosquito re-
pellents containing oil of lemon
eucalyptus should not be used on
children under the age of 3
years. DEET is not recom-
mended on children younger
than 2 months old. -
Infants should be kept in-
doors or mosquito netting should
be used over carriers when mos-
quitoes are present.
Avoid applying repellents to
the hands of children. Adults
should apply repellent first to
their own hands and then trans-
fer it to the child's skin and
clothing.
If additional protection is
necessary, apply a permethrin
repellent directly to your cloth-
ing. Again, always follow the
manufacturer's directions.
Tips on Eliminating Mos-


ing an adult CPR, First Aid and
AED class Saturday, Aug. 13.
The class be from 8 a.m. to 6

external defibrillator in cases of
sudden cardiac arrest.

which includes materials. Pre-
registration is required.

BARTOW HIGH School Head Coach Shaw
Killets, after explaining that all of his remainir
veteran players were from World War II, take
some time to speak with some of the attendees
the annual football kickoff fund-raiser of the Bt
tow Lions Club. (Staff photos)


HEAD COACH Mike Hayde, who led th6 Fort
Meade Miners to win the 1-A state championship
,last year, was ineligible to win the crying towel,
but he still did his best to convince the audience
that his football team was in trouble.


New Lake Wales Coach


Wins Crying Towel


Will this be the year Bartow
High School wins the district
football championship?
What will Fort Meade High
School do for an encore?
When will Lake Wales High
School 'have a head football
coach?
Those questions were on the
table Thursday night as the Bar-
tow Lions Club held its annual
football kickoff fund-raiser' be-
fore a large crowd at the civic
center.
A myriad of jokes, not foot-
balls, was in the air as coaches
tried to play one-upmanship
with their cross-field rivals be-
fore the regular, season begins
Friday, Aug. 26. Most of them
will play each other as the cam-
paign progresses.
Bartow will travel to Fort
Meade to face the defending 1-A
state champion Miners later in
the fall. Fort Meade will take on
perennial powerhouse Hardee
County. Lake Wales will test
Bartow in their old rivalry,
which now has district implica-
tions.
The evening's proceeds were
emceed by Tom Thornburg, long-
time owner of Bartow radio sta-
tion WBF but a graduate of Lake
Wales High School who used to
live in Babson Park. He began
the night of good-natured jibes,
some aimed directly at individu-
als in the audience. He received
a mixed reaction, from silence to
eye-rolling to gut-busting laugh-,
ter.
Coaches offered most of their


comments in the same vein,
downplaying their ability to be
successful this fall.
To hear Bartow Head Coach
Shawn Killets talk, the Yellow
Jackets might as well just stay
home.
He started off by saying it
really is true that football is a
game of inches. "That's how far
we move the football when we
are on offense," he said. After
looking at some game films, he
said he realized the only way his
offense would move forward is if
the film was played backwards.
"We're scratching.to find ma-
terial,' Killets said. "We do have
a lot of veterans on the team but
most 'of them are from World
WarII."
"We will be in awe of the state
champions when we go to Fort
Meade."
Earlier the Miners' head
coach, Mike Hayde, said he
hopes Shawn will take it easy on
his team when the Yellow Jack-
ets come to town.
After listening to a couple of
sincere tributes to Fort Meade's
state championship season, it
was time for the head man to
talk about his 2005 team.
First he thanked the coaches
and players who have come
through the football program
since he arrived in 1997. Then
he asked people to step up and
help today's kids because they
are in need. "If you can help
make a difference in their lives,
please do," he -;aid.
As far as this year's football


team is concerned, Hayde didn't
have much hope.
"I think we're in trouble this
year, guys," he began. "We
graduated the best group of sen-
iors we've 'probably ever had. We
don't have anyone coming back."
"There is no quarterback. We
might get run over this year. The
band has more people than we
do."
Lake Wales does have a new
head football coach Marvin
Pavy who held the title of in-
terim since Chad Barnhardt re-
signed in April to return to his
alma mater, the University of
South Florida.
Pavy talked about the youth
of this year's team.
"Seventy showed up for prac-
tice," he said. There were 11 sen-
iors, four of whom he did not
know; 25 juniors; about 20
sophomores; and 50 freshmen.
That adds up to 96, but who's
counting?
"I don't know what we're go-
ing to throw at you," he said,
"but there will be a lot of fresh-
men involved."
Pavy said his players were
working hard and that he was
looking forward to the upcoming
season.
The crying towel, given annu-
ally to the coach who spins 'the
best yarn about his team, went
to Pavy on the basis of receiving
the most crowd noise. Fort
Meade coach Hayde, who had
won it twice before, wasn't eligi-
ble because of his state champi-
onship year.


If you are melancholy for the first time, you will find upon a little inquiry, that others have been
melancholy many times, and yet are cheerful now. If you have been melancholy many times, recollect
that you have got over all those times; and try. if you cannot find means of getting over them better.

Lawyer Fees


(Continued from Page 1)
Senft said the county was reim-
bursed when it won the case.
Myers asked if the county's
action "would open us up to reim-
burse the developer in this case,"
noting that the developer also
incurred costs in the
Abercrombies' litigation.
Jarret replied that in order to
make the case for recovery, the
developer would have to show
that its action served a "stated
public purpose."
"This is really a policy issue,"
not a legal decision, he added.
"More and more things are
being challenged," Senft said. He
asserted that the Abercrombies'
successful lawsuit would cause
him to take a closer look at devel-
opment applications in the
future.
He said the lawyers bills
would be subject to scrutiny by
Jarret and Clerk of Courts
Richard Weiss, who is the com-
mission's auditor.
Myers said the county would
pay only "unreimbursed" fees.
;He asked: "Does this entitle
future intelligent people to go to
an attorney and seek advice on a
land use case" in the belief they
could collect reimbursement from
the county commission if they
made appearances before the
commission week after week, as
the Abercrombies have done.
"I share that same concern,"
Senft said.
"There's never a guarantee ...
that somebody won't try to use it
as a precedent," Jarret said.


Myers asked if the county
would be responsible for paying
attorney fees of anyone who filed
suit to challenge the county's
decision to reimburse the
Abercrombies.
"Conceivably somebody could
make a claim, yes," Jarret
replied. "We need to be ready to
defend it."
Courts Clerk Richard Weiss
asked if any contributions made
to the Abercrombies were to be
deducted from the reimburse-
ment, and suggested that the
county require an affidavit from
the Abercrombies on what contri-
butions they had received.
Mrs. Abercrombie told the
commission that she had com-
plete records of contributions
received. She said someone made
an anonymous contribution of
$10,000 to her mortgage compa-
ny. None of the money they
received went to lawyers, she
said.
Senft advised her to find out
how the Internal Revenue
Service would treat the income.
He said he made a personal con-
tribution without restriction as
to how it was to be spent.
The motion to approve the fees
passed over Wilkinson's negative
vote.
The resolution did not set
forth the amount to be paid, spec-
ifying only "unreimbursed"
lawyer fees, and did not set forth
what contributions, if any,
received by the Abercrombies
were to be considered a reim-
bursement.

Hundreds of youngsters will
hit the links when the Mutual of

. than 35,000 kids regardless of
t their skill level.

tual of Omaha's Drive, Chip &
Putt Junior Challenge to St. Pe-
tersburg and Venice," said Mu-
tual of Omaha general manager
Jim Speers. "Everyone is a win-
ner in this fun and rewarding
program for kids between the
ages of 7 and 14."

each city will be selected to com-
rn pete. Winners from each local
Ig event will have the opportunity

A Bartow Chamber and City
of Bartow groundbreaking cere-
mony for one of Bartow's newest
projects will be held Tuesday,
Aug. 9, at 9:30 a.m. at Carver
Recreation Center, 520 S. Idle-
wood Avenue.
Carver Recreation Center's
phase one project is a new gym-
nasium, 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-presi-
dent 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 con-
struction of a swimming pool,
followed around 1960 with a
meeting hall with a small stage,
and a small kitchen.
That building is commonly re-
ferred to as the East-West Build-
ing. The present Carver gym,
built in 1970, is a multi-purpose
building, used for meetings and
banquets as well as for basket-
ball. The pool was demolished a
few years ago, because it was
considered beyond economic re-
pair.
