By the end of the year, Polk
V County's once-vibrant phosphate
industry will be down to a single
major player.
This week, The Mosaic
Company, created last October by
the merger of IMC and Cargill,
announced that it has reached a
multi-millon-dollar settlement
with U.S. Agri-Chemicals Corp. to
terminate a long-term agreement
under which IMC and Mosaic
have sold phosphate ore to USAC
since 1994.
USAC, which operates a phos-
phoric acid plant in Fort Meade
and a dry fertilizer products plant
in Bartow, will close both facili-'
Carver ties. The Bartow plant produces
', C.C. diammonium phosphate and
I Rick monammonium phosphate.
creation That will leave Mosaic as the
only phosphate company with
production operations in Polk
County. CF Industries still has an
office at what used to be its
Bonnie Mine, but its processing
plant is north of Plant City in
do all Hillsborough County.
A few decades ago, there were
more than a dozen phosphate
fee for companies digging up phosphate
rock and processing it into fertil-
Street izers and other products in Polk
508. County. The field has become
smaller as some companies
merged and others ran out of
phosphate ore reserves,
Mosaic's announcement said
that the two companies "intend to
finalize definitive agreements
and close on the transactions by
mid-December, 2005."
The announcement alsosaid
that USAC "has informed Mosaic
that it intends to cease phosphate
operations at its Bartow and Fort
Meade, Fla., facilities upon the
exhaustion of its remaining raw
materials inventories."
USAC officials have been
instructed by their Chinese corpo-
rate owners, Sinochem Corp., not
to comment on the company's
plans, but word of the impending
closure of the USAC plants
spread quickly throughout what

is left of Polk County's phosphate
industry.
Employees have been told that
the plants will be closed when
existing inventory of phosphate
ore has been processed into phos
acid, DAP and MAP, which
reportedly is expected to occur
before the end of the year.
At the heart of the closure was
IMC's decision last September to
terminate a long-term agreement
to sell approximately two million
tons a year of ore from its phos-
phate mines to USAC. The latter
company has not operated its own
mines for many years.
Under terms of the agreement,
IMC was to sell phosphate rock to
USAC until 2014, but IMC had
the option to terminate the agree-
ment before then.
One month prior to the merger
of IMC and Cargill that formed
Mosaic, IMC gave notice to USAC
that it would exercise that termi-
nation option on Oct. 1, 2007.
After the merger, Mosaic,
which assumed all the prior con-
tracts and obligations of IMC and
Cargill, reviewed that decision
and decided not to change it.
USAC officials reportedly tried
to negotiate an extension with
Mosaic, but in the end, the two
companies agreed to terminate
the contract much earlier than
2007.
Mosaic's phosphate reserves
are believed to provide enough
phosphate rock to keep the com-
pany's Polk County plants in
operation for another 30 years.

An escapee from the Bartow
Work Release facility was caught
early this morning in Zephyrhills.
Marcus M. Holloway, who
turned 27 on Aug. 3, left the
Department of Corrections facili-
ty at 550 Westwood Ave. some-
time between 11:20 a.m. and
12:14 p.m. on Wednesday.
According to Polk County
Sheriff's Office spokesman Carrie
Rodgers, Holloway was present at
the 11:20 a.m. headcount, but not
at the count about an hour later.
He was found at a motel in
Zephyrhills around 2 o'clock this
morning, after his girlfriend
called the Department of
Corrections facility in Polk City.
Holloway has been working at
the Denny's restaurant in Bartow
as part of his work release condi-
tions, but Wednesday was his day
off.
He was sent to state prison in
1997 for a third degree murder in
Lakeland the year before. He was
transferred from state prison to

between Mosaic and USAC,
announced from Mosaic's head-
quarters in Plymouth, Minn., is
subject to approval by the boards
of directors of the two companies
and by various regulatory agen-
cies in the United States and
China.
The agreement between the
two companies, called "a global
resolution" by Mosaic because of
the variety of issues that it
resolves, provides that:
The agreement by Mosaic to
sell rock to USAC will be termi-
nated.
Mosaic will pay $84 million
to USAC in exchange for that
early termination. Included in the
settlement is compensation for
prepayment of $57 million made
by USAC to IMC in 2000.
Mosaic will pay an addition-
al approximately $10 million to
USAC to settle a lawsuit over the
price that IMC had charged
USAC for the rock under the con-
tract.
Mosaic will issue approxi-
mately $38 million in Mosaic
stock to USAC in exchange for
land owned by USAC which is
estimated to contain approxi-
mately three million tons of phos-
phate ore, plus various equip-
ment and spare parts.
USAC will "be restricted" in
its ability to sell those shares for
18 months.
Mosaic will not assume any
liabilities, "including closure lia-
bilities," of USAC. The primary
closure liability in the phosphate
industry is gypsum stacks.

Katherine Harris Brings Campaign To Hometown


ByS. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

On the first/day of her 15-
month campaign to unseat U.S.
Senator Bill Nelson, Katherine
Harris returned to her roots in
Bartow on Tuesday for a pep
rally attended by hundreds of for-
mer neighbors and classmates,
many of them wearing Harris for
Senate T-shirts.
She made her official cam-
paign announcement in
Sarasota, headquarters of her
Congressional district, Tuesday
morning, and after more than a
score of interviews, came to
Bartow on her campaign bus to
renew friendships in the town in
which she grew up: .
The talk yas more of commu-
nity value than politics, though
she pledged 1.6 represent, the
interests of senior citizens, to
strive for preservation ,of the


quality of life in Florida, and to
oppose efforts to drill for oil off
Florida's Gulf shore.
Dr. Paul Coury, who once lived
across the street from the Harris
family on Margaret Avenue,
noted that Bartow has produced
Spessard Holland, who served as
Governor of Florida and U.S.
Senator; Adam Putnam and Ms.
Harris, current members of the
U.S. House of Representatives;
Chesterfield H. Smith, past pres-
ident of the American Bar Assn.;
Stephen H. Grimes, past chief
justice of the Florida Supreme
Court; and John Laurent, circuit
judge and former Florida
Senator; and Bob Crawford, past
president of the Florida 'Senate
and former Florida
Commissioner of Agriculture.
"If I were a politician in
Florida, I'd come to Bartow to
start my campaign," Dr. Coury
said.
Byron Walker, a classmate of


Ms. Harris, said their Bartow
High School graduating class just
held its 30th reunion.
"Welcome home," he told her.
"I can't think of a better place to
come home to.
"So much of what she learned,
she learned here in Bartow.
"The kids from Bartow are dif-
ferent, but they're different in a
good way."
Both of them started their
educational careers at Martha
Hunter's kindergarten, he
recalled.
"I was a yellow bird. I was
always jealous of the blue birds
and the red birds."
It wasn't until 10 years ago
that he learned that the young-
sters were grouped by birthdates,
not intelligence levels.
Walker said he has played ten-
nis with Ms. Harris, both as a
partner and an opponent.
"She likes to win, but she does-
n't want to win at all costs," he


said.
Mrs. Gundy Costello, retired
executive director of the Heart of
Florida Girl Scout Council, told
of Ms. Harris' skills as a Scout
and a camper.
She was one of a small group
of girls who went to the Isles of
Nevis in the Caribbean Sea to
teach a group of 150 youngsters
there how to swim. On a return
trip 30 years later, Mrs. Costello
found some of those same stu-
dents, who still remember Ms.
Harris, she said.
George Harris introduced his
daughter, observing: "I could go
on for a few hours, as you know."
She lived in Bartow from the
age of 2, having been born in Key
West, where her father served as
a Naval officer.
"The hospital bill was $7.50,"
Harris recalled. "She was cer-
tainly a great investment."
For more than 70 consecutive
years, Polk County sent a


Senator to Congress, he said:
Park Trammel (1917 to 1936),
Charles 0. Andrews (1936 to
1946), Spessard L. Holland (1946
to 1971), and Lawton Chiles
(1971 to 1989).
"It's time to bring back that
tradition," he said.
Her political career has been
marked by "integrity ... honesty
. hard work," Harris said of his
daughter. "She's been a positive
force for Florida."
Ms. Harris told the crowd:
"There is no place more nurtur-
ing than Bartow, Florida," adding
that people always looked out for
her when she was growing up.
"Every time I did something
wrong, my parents got dozens of
phone calls," she recalled.
Of the campaign, she said:
"We are embarking on a very,
very difficult journey; we can't
wait to begin that journey."
She said that for the next 15
months, she will tour Florida "on


a listening tour.
"We want to preserve this
piece of paradise for future gen-
erations. It's not about making
promises; it's about keeping
promises."
Americans have a vital inter-
est in both national security and
financial security, she said.
Unemployment is the lowest in
decades, and the federal deficit is

declining, she said.
She quoted President John
Kennedy as saying that the way
to increase federal revenues is to
cut taxes.
Saying that her Congressional
district has the largest popula-
tion of citizens over the age of 60
in the country, she said: "We will
honor our commitment" to
retirees.
Another major issue with her
is affordable housing.
She said she voted against the
federal energy bill because it
called for an inventory of oil


reserves beneath the Gulf of
Mexico, widely interpreted as a
predicate to drilling.
"It's so very good to be home
with my Mom and Dad, and all
the other moms and dads who
helped raise me," she said.
On Tuesday, the opening day
of her campaign, she made
appearances in Sarasota and
Bartow.
The balance of her itinerary
for the week:
Wednesday: Tampa, Orlando
and Jacksonville.
Thursday: Jacksonville,
Tallahassee and Pensacola.
Friday: Palm Beach, Fort
Lauderdale and Miami.
Saturday: Little Havana,
Naples and Charlotte County.
"It's going to be a very tough
election," she said.

ing skills taught are carpentry,


computer applications, culinary
arts, housekeeping, and hospital-
ity.
LATCH also offers job place-
ment to graduates of their voca-
tional training program.

Dora Ca

By LETA WRIGHT


For three years Dora Capito,
Violet Sheffield and I went to
lunch at a different restaurant
every Wednesday.
When Mrs. Capito moved to
Ohio in April, we promised we
would go visit her.
We left last Wednesday, and
came back this Wednesday.
We had a wonderful trip, and
Dora sends her greetings to all
her friends.
We toured through the Amish
country, went to Dora's home as
a child, and drove through the
farm lands that were owned by
her family.
We traveled the whole circle
of the Amish country, stopping
at gift shops, Lehman's Famous
Hardware at Kidron, and ate at
the Amish restaurants.
We drove through miles and
miles of corn and soybean fields.
All along the way were the
Amish horse and buggies.
We went north of Toledo and
spent a night with Dora's niece
and family, who live in a man-
sion on the shores of Lake Erie.
That cool air off the lake was
heaven sent and they served
corn on the cob fresh out of the
field that afternoon. Boy, was it
good.
All in all, we put 2,734 miles
on the yellow streak .. a long
way.
Dora was one our very sup-
portive volunteers at the Fort
Meade Historical Museum, and
we miss her not being around.
Some more history of Fort
Meade, this being the third in a
series from the History of Polk
County book that was owned by
Nat. J. Patterson, one of our
prominent lawyers.
"The settlement was made in,
what was known as 'The Dead-
ening' a tract of land about 20
miles square on the west side of
Peace Creek.
"It may be stated that Peace
Creek is a corruption of the origi-
nal name, Pease Creek, which
name Was given it because of the
wild peas which grew in great
profusion along its course.
"No treaty of peace was ever
made on or near that river, and


apito

the impression that it was
named Peace Creek because of
its being the scene of such a
treaty, is erroneous.
"A newspaper, published in
Tampa in 1858, refers to what is
now Fort Meade as 'Peas Creek,'
that being the name of the post
office at that time.
S"There was an advertisement
of the store of R.R. Blount, and
this apparently was the first
store of the settlement. Polk
County did not exist at the time.
"The lands, which included
the site of the settlement were
called 'The Deadening,' from the
fact that years' before all the
large timber in the area had
died. Indians say that there was
a very heavy hail at one time,
and the stones were so large and
fell with such force, that they
bruised the trees, and worms got
in the bruised places and killed
the trees.
"'This explanation is plausible,
as the death of the trees was not
likely to have been caused by
fire, as fire does not kill pine
trees when the woods are
burned.
"It cannot be said that in
1881, the curtain goes up on the
scene of Fort Meade in its infant
stage, but rather that we get a
glimpse of the setting of that
time.
"A sleepy village of perhaps
150 souls, two dry foods stores,
one fancy goods store, and a
drug store. The following year, a
church building was erected, and
on' May 7, the Methodist Church
was dedicated, this being one of
the first church buildings in the
county.,
"The structure cost $1,200.
Rev. Pelot officiated, and Rev.
Carson, of Mississippi, preached
the dedication sermon.
"That the people were eager
for the spiritual advantages of a
church in the community is evi-
denced by the circumstance that
a couple of days after the dedica-
tion, a church festival was held,
and although there was less
than 200 population at that
time, $635 was realized."
More of this history next
week.

berry as part of the "You Drink
& Drive. You Lose" Labor Day
national program.
The "You Drink & Drive. You
Lose" crackdown runs from Aug.
19 through Sept. 5.
"Many people choose to cele-
brate with alcohol during the
summer," Mulberry Police Chief
Lawrence Cavallaro. "Unfortu-
nately, some of these people also
choose to drive after drinking.
The saturation patrol has been
planned for an area where im-
paired driving 'crashes fre-


quently occur. Our goal is to ap-
prehend all impaired drivers in
the area before they cause
crashes."
Preliminary crash statistics
for 2004 indicate that more than
1,050 people were killed in alco-
hol related traffic crashes last
year. During the official Labor
Day holiday periods in 2002 and
2003, a total of 35 people were
killed in alcohol-related crashes.
"We encourage everyone to act
responsibly during the Labor
Day holiday," Chief Cavallaro,
said. "If you intend to drink,
make arrangements to get home
safely. Use a designated driver,
public transportation or a taxi."

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

PC Madness at the NCAA


Editorial











Make Your Voice Heard


On Garbage Landfill


Do you want to make your views known
to the Florida Dept. of Environmental
Protection about the application by the
Cedar Trail landfill to expand its opera-
tions by accepting "commercial garbage"
in addition to the yard trash and construc-
tion and demolition debris already
allowed?
Callers to the FDEP office have been
advised to send a letter to:
Florida Dept. of Environmental Protection
Attn: District Director Deborah Getzoff
3904 Coconut Palm Drive
Tampa, Fla. 33619
For added impact, send copies of the let-
ter to:.
Florida Dept. of Environmental Protection
Solid Waste Department
Attn: Manager Susan Pelz
3904 Coconut Palm Drive
Tampa, Fla. 33619
and to
Florida Dept.. of Environmental Protection
Attn: Secretary Colleen Castille
3800 Commonwealth Blvd.
Tallahassee, Fla. 32399
The FDEP is the agency that will decide
'if garbage can be landfilled within the city
limits of Bartow, a short distance from the
fastest-growing, highest-density residen-
tial development in Bartow, on the E.F.
Griffin Road.
The relatively benign yard trash and
Construction and demolition debris
already accepted are less than an ideal
neighbor to residential development, but
they do co-exist today.
Adding garbage to the mix not just
from Bartow, but from any other commu-
nities that want to "save a ton of money,"
in the words of the landfill operator is
something else..
And then there's the issue of "commer-
cial garbage," a distinction that we've


never heard made.
The agreement to settle a federal lawsuit
over the construction and demolition land-
fill prohibited burying of "household
garbage," a, term that would seem to be
universally understood.
But the landfill operators maintain that
this wording allows "commercial
garbage," a term we understand the FDEP
does not even define.
This raises the specter of convoys of
garbage trucks bringing in garbage which
the drivers thereof solemnly promise is
"commercial garbage," and not "house-
hold garbage." How that distinction
would be enforced has not been explained.
To us, garbage is garbage, and whether it
comes -from a residential kitchen or a
restaurant, it shouldn't be buried on the
edge of a growing residential area.
We think it's a terrible idea, as do most
of the folks we've discussed it with.
Perhaps you agree, perhaps you don't.
Whatever your position, now is the time
to make your opinion known to the state
agency that will make the decision.
Don't sit silently by, assuming that
"somebody else will take care of it."'

Once again the Political
Correctness inmates have taken
over the asylum.
In college football, where
coaches rule with, an authority
(and at a salary) that would make
a Third World dictator envious,
and starting quarterbacks
become campus deities, the
NCAA has decreed that because
somebody's feelings got hurt, 18
colleges must change their team
names.
By next February.
Among them, of course, are
my Seminoles of Florida State.
The use of Indian names and
symbols must cease on Feb. 1, the
National Collegiate Athletic
Assn. has decided.
Somebody, somewhere, is
offended by them.
And if they're not offended,
then .. well... they should be.
FSU President T.K. Wetherell
calls the rule "both outrageous
and insulting." The man can turn
a phrase.
Max Osceola, who is on the
five-member Tribal Council of the
- ft


Seminole Tribe of Florida, reiter-
ated his tribe's position that it is
not offended by the name. I
should think not who would-
n't want to have his or her culture
affiliated with a multiple national
championship team?
Oh, the NCAA is aware that
Florida's Seminoles take no
offense at Florida State's
Seminoles, but the Oklahoma
Seminole Nation does.
So fine.
Don't let Oklahoma State
University call its team the
Seminoles. Call 'em the Okies or
something, bring them to
Tallahassee, and let Bobby
Bowden whip 'em with one wide
receiver tied behind his back.
Seven of the offending teams
are simply called the Indians, and
given that the Politically Correct
term for American Indians is now
Native Americans (as opposed to
20th or 30th generation European
immigrants such as myself), one
might argue that the term
"Indian" has been abandoned.
I have long, pondered the


notion that Christopher
Columbus "discovered Amer-
ica," since the first thing he dis-
covered when he got here was a
culture which he called Indians,
because he thought he was in
India. That's what happens when
you don't take along a woman to
ask directions.
The concept that you can "dis-
cover" a continent on which sev-
eral million people already are
living puzzles me, but I wouldn't
propose that history books be
rewritten to explain that interpre-
tation.
The Fighting (or even peace-
loving) Irish get no protection
from the NCAA; neither do the
various varieties of fauna whose
names and likenesses have been
claimed by Florida colleges:
Gators, Bulls,, Moccasins, and
other critters with from zero to
four legs. Hurricanes have no
advocate with the NCAA.
Since I have been bypassed by
the Political Correctness crowd -
nobody would think about
throwing around a name like


Frisbie I have stretched my
imagination to find some basis on
which I can take meaningless
offense.
And I have found it.
Having worn the uniform of
an officer in both the active Army
and the Florida National Guard
for more then 32 years, I think I
am qualified to call myself a
Patriot. And I do not recall giving
any team in Boston the right to
co-opt that image.
And in fact, half the teams in
major league baseball have taken
another of my identities -
American without so much as
a By-Your-Leave.
Years ago, a new college gave
its student body the opportunity
of picking both the school mascot
and the school colors.
The students I am not mak-
ing this up, people chose pink
and white as its colors, and the
Artichoke as its mascot.
The school was not amused; I
was.
The Artichokes: It's a team
with heart.

nieck Into Coverage

Before College Begins


In a few weeks, nearly 40,000
high school graduates in Florida
will head off to college for the
first time.
Between deciding where to
live and what classes to take,
one important aspect of life after
high school is regularly over-
looked by college-bound students
and their parents: insurance.
According to the Florida Asso-
ciation of Insurance Agents,
more than 80 percent of students
who rent during the school year
might not have enough insur-
ance to protect their personal
property, such as computers and
stereos.
"Parents and students often
don't think about getting renter
insurance until after the first
loss," said Scott Johnson, execu-
tive vice-president of FAIA. "A
good computer and peripherals
can costs thousands of dollars,
and for a college student, that's
an investment worth insuring."
Florida's "Trusted Choice" in-
dependent agents offer the fol-
lowing tips to protect college-
bound students and their par-
ents:
Consider renters insurance.
Contrary to popular belief, rent-
ers insurance can be very afford-
able. A typical policy, providing
$15,000 in personal property
coverage and about $100,000 in
liability protection, costs about
$100 to $150 a year.
The liability coverage is for
negligence that injures someone
else and similar lawsuits should

someone get hurt in the stu-
dent's apartment.
Make sure you know what
your health insurance covers.
Health insurance is a tricky is-
sue for college-bound students
and their parents.
Many parents and students
are not always aware that once
students are older than age 18,
they can often be covered by a
parent's health insurance only if
the students are in school full-
time. And once a student reaches
age 23, that student will usually
lose coverage under a parent's
policy, regardless of enrollment
status.
But, policies differ widely. A
recent "Trusted Choice" survey
revealed that 84 percent of col-
lege students and their parents
either don't know or mistakenly
believe that the student's health
insurance will cover the student
when he or she travels or studies
abroad.
In fact, many health insur-
ance policies limit health cover-
age to the U.S.
Inventory belongings. Stu-
dents should make a list of per-
sonal belongings they are taking
to school and keep that list in a
safe place in case of theft or
damage.
The list should include insur-
able items such as electronics,
jewelry and other items of value.
Parents should have an off-site
copy of the list.

information, see Page 1B.

MICHAEL DUKES, an assistant professor
with the University of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences in Gainesville, holds
equipment that measures soil moisture in a turf-
grass research plot. He says automatic sprinkler
systems equipped with soil moisture monitors use


The cost of keeping a lawn
green could get lower, thanks to
soil moisture monitors that
make automatic sprinkler sys-
tems more efficient, said a Uni-
versity of Florida researcher.
The devices can cut sprinkler
system water usage by more
than half, according to a recent
UF study.
The findings were presented
at the annual meeting of the
American Society of Agricultural
Engineers July 17-20 in Tampa.
Soil moisture monitors con-
tinuously check soil moisture
levels and prevent sprinklers
from operating when watering is
not needed, said Michael Dukes,
an assistant professor of agricul-
tural engineering with UF's In-
stitute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences. The monitors are not
widely used despite being avail-
able for more than a decade.
On average, U.S. homeowners
use almost 50 percent more wa-
ter outdoors than indoors, ac-
cording to a 2000 report by the-
American Water Works Associa-
tiont. Because lawn care accounts
for most outdoor water use,
"homeowners who reduce unnec-
essary irrigation can save big on
Water bills, he said.
Sometimes, reduced watering
can even improve a lawn's
health overwatering encour-
ages shallow root growth, which
makes turfgrass less resistant to
stress and more susceptible to
some diseases, he said.
The soil moisture monitors
Dukes tested are marketed as
- accessories for automatic sprin-
kler systems that use timers to
schedule irrigation. These sys-
tems are convenient to use, but
often wasteful, he said.
"We conducted a survey of
Florida homeowners from 2002
to 2004 that showed mostly-
grass landscapes are typically
given two-and-a-half times the
water they need," he said. "The
monitors we studied, priced from
$75 to $350, could pay for them-
selves within one year in areas
where the cost of water is high."
Dukes' six-month study evalu-
ated four commercially available
'soil moisture monitors, using
them with timer-based sprinkler
systems on UF turfgrass re-
search plots.
For comparison, he also tested
timer-based systems with no wa-
ter-saving devices, as well as
systems equipped with shutoff
devices called rain sensors.
Rain sensors are popular wa-
ter-saving options for automatic,
'sprinkler systems, but, because
they measure rainfall rather
than soil moisture, they may not
determine a lawn's water needs
accurately, Dukes said.
The UF study showed systems
equipped with soil moisture
monitors used 56 percent less
water on average than systems
with rain sensors when the tim-
ers were set to water twice a

week. Systems with the monitors
used 70 percent less water on av-
erage than systems without wa-
ter-saving devices on a twice-
weekly watering schedule.
Use of the soil moisture moni-
tors did not produce visible dif-
ferences in turf quality, Dukes
said.
The monitors are particularly
suitable for residential land-
scape irrigation because they re-
quire little effort from homeown-
ers, he said.
"For a timer-based system to
be water-efficient in a climate
like Florida's, it has to be ad-
justed seasonally to account for
heavy rains in the summer and
reduced water requirements in
the winter," Dukes said. "Home-
owners can avoid that inconven-
ience if the sprinkler system ad-
justs to soil conditions on its
own."
Soil moisture monitors are
composed of two elements: sen-
sors that track the soil's water
content aid an electronic con-
troller that can override the
sprinkler system's watering
schedule if the sensors indicate


sensors, which detect moisture
by measuring how well the soil
conducts electricity, are buried
three or four inches underground
to monitor the region where turf-
grass roots are densest, he said.
Dukes plans to continue test-
ing the monitors, and is cur-
rently recruiting homeowners in
Pinellas County to participate in
a study investigating how much
water the devices save when
used on actual residential land-
scapes, he said.
The devices will have to over-
come some skepticism to gain a
foothold in the residential mar-
ket, Mecham said. Some users
have had bad experiences with
soil moisture monitors, but he,
believes problems are often re-
lated to poorly planned or im-
properly maintained sprinkler
systems.
"People who install one of
these devices should understand
it will take some time to fine-
tune its performancee" .he..said.
"But we need to learn to trust
this technology we need better
residential water management,
and soil moisture monitors are a
viable way to achieve that."

Polk County Transit Services

Honored With Two Awards


Polk County Transit Services
came away a two-time winner
Wednesday evening when it
earned the Florida Commission
for the Transportation Disadvan-
taged (CTD)'s "Innovation of the
Year" and "Driver of the Year"
awards for 2005.
At its 13th annual Transpor-
tation Training and Technology
Awards Banquet, the CTD hon-
ored Polk County Transit Serv-
ices (PCTS) with the "Innovation
of the Year" award for its annual
Hurricane Simulation Training
Program and named Transit
Services' employee Brenda
Bland as 2005's "Driver of the
Year."
The purpose of the annual
awards program, held this year
at the Renaissance Orlando Re-
sort at Sea World, is to honor
those programs and people who
champion the causes of the
"transportation disadvantaged"
- those who can't drive them-
selves or purchase transporta-
tion because of a physical or
mental disability, income or age.
Because these people must
rely on others to obtain access to
health care, employment, shop-
ping or other life-sustaining ac-
tivities, the CTD strives to en-
sure that they have access to "ef-
ficient, cost-effective and quality
transportation services."
Polk County Transit Services'
Hurricane Simulation Training
Program received Innovation of
the Year for its part in preparing
employees to meet the many
needs of the transportation dis-
advantaged population during
2004's unprecedented hurricane
season.
During Hurricanes Charley,
Frances and Jeanne, Transit
Services employees transported
699 dialysis patients for treat-
ment, evacuated 168 patients
from two nursing homes, evacu-
ated residents from a condemned
apartment complex, transported
327 individuals to public shel-
ters, transported 53 residents to
hospitals and nursing homes,
and provided 802 trips for other
medical reasons.


~1~~


Transit Services employees
also delivered food, water, ice
and baby supplies throughout
Polk County and as far away as
Wauchula in Hardee County.
The majority of the people re-
ceiving these services were
transportation disadvantaged.
"The transportation disadvan-
taged in Polk County depend on
us and we need to have the
preparation and practice neces-
sary to be dependable," said
Transit Services Director Sandra
Winegar, who created and imple-
mented the program. "We
couldn't be more pleased that the
commission has recognized our
efforts."
The CTD also recognized
PCTS paratransit driver Brenda
Bland, of Winter Haven, with
the "Driver of the Year" award.
Each year, the CTD honors
one driver who has "performed
in an outstanding manner and
has shown care and concern" for
passengers who are transporta-
tion disadvantaged.
"Many of Brenda's clients
can't walk, and Brenda is always
there to courteously give them
the special assistance they
need," said Paul Simmons, op-
erations manager for PCTS. "She
helps them into the bus, carries
groceries when needed, and can
always be counted on for a sin-
cere hug."
During the 2004 hurricane'
season, Simmons said, "Ms.
Bland's dedication was phenome-
nal, and can only be described as
compassionate and selfless."
Before each of Hurricanes
Charley, Frances and Jeanne hit
Polk County, Ms. Bland spent
countless hours transporting cli-
ents to and from shelters and de-
livering the supplies needed to
sustain them during the storms.
She stayed in the shelters and
helped feed the clients "while
calmly comforting and reassur-
ing each of them," Simmons said.
"Brenda always gives 110 per-
cent of herself to her job and to
her clients," said CTD Commis-
sioner Marybeth Nayfield, who
presented the award. "Her com-

passion and dedication exempli-
fies everything a transit driver
should strive to be."
As an example of Ms. Bland's
dedication to her job and her cli-
ents, Nayfield cited an incident
on Aug. 11, 2004, when one of
Bland's paratransit clients did
not answer her door.
"Brenda looked in the window
and saw [her client] lying on the
floor," said Bonnie Ewing,
Bland's supervisor. "She called
for help and then she knew
the woman's daughter lived
down the road so she ran to
get her."
Ms. Bland stayed by the
woman's side until help arrived.
Later that afternoon, she
stopped by Winter Haven Hospi-
tal to check on her client. Family
members told her they were con-
cerned because they hadn't been
able to locate the woman's hus-
band, so Ms. Bland drove to the
home and found him working in
the garden.
She drove him to the hospital
to be with his wife and family.
"Brenda goes out of her way
more than we'll ever know to
help her clients, and they love
her for it," Ewing said. "If she
doesn't tell them when she's go-
ing on vacation, they'll call here
to find out if she's okay."
The commission also praised
Bland for her "dependability,
quality of work and overall dedi-
cation for her job."
During her five-year tenure as
a driver, she has not had a single
accident and she has never
called in sick.
"As [my supervisor] knows,"
Ms. Bland said, "if I'm not out
there to get 'em, I'm dead."

Ninth in World Series


The Bartow Intimidators 12,
and under softball team survived
110 degree heat, rain, lightning,
roller coasters, water rides, rock
wall climbing, laser tag, and go-
cart racing to finish ninth out of
92 teams at the National Soft-
ball Association World Series
held in Rock Hill, S.C.
The Bartow team beat four
state champions en route to their
top ten finish. They finished first
in their pool by beating the
North Carolina state champs 3-
1.
They won their second pool
play game by beating the Mary-
land state champs 4-2. They be-
gan the elimination play by beat-
ing the New Jersey state champs
12-0.
Then they had a come-from-
behind victory over the Delaware
state champs. Facing their first
loss of the tournament down 3-1
in the top of the sixth inning, the
Bartow girls rallied to score six
runs and win the game.
Next the Bartow girls faced a
local opponent, the Orlando No
Fear. The No Fear, ranked in the
top five teams from Florida, had,
split two previous meetings with
the Bartow Intimidators in pre-
vious tournaments. But this
time they were no match for Bar-


tow as the girls beat the Orlando
team 12-0 in three innings.
On the following day, Bartow
lost its first game to the Illinois
Aurelios 4-1. After falling into

Musings From God's Penman


Still In Love After All These Years


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER

A great delight of being a min-
ister is watching a relationship
grow into a wonderful romance.
Often the pastor is the first to
recognize the signs, even before
the couple realizes it.
My wife and I play a little
game to see which of us can pre-
dict how long it will take for a
couple to realize they are a cou-
ple. My wife is better at this than
me and to date I owe her $17 mil-
lion.
Actually, the only romantic
things about me are my "love
handles," which is why I have
spent so much energy developing
them over the years.
It is not that men are less
romantic than women are; they
just have different ideas of
romance.
For most women, romance is
flowers and candy in heart-
shaped boxes.
For men, it is a Big Mac with
fries and a soda and super size
it, please.
Why are women so complicated
and men so simple?
Err, did I say that right?
If it were not for women,
romance would have died a long
time ago.
Hollywood tries to define
romance for us, but their idea of
romance is raw sex and lurid lust.
Hollywood would not know
romance if it nibbled on their
ears.
Romance is not a fling in the
spring, but a lifelong relationship,
experiencing all the ups and
downs of life together.
There is no picture quite as
refreshing as a couple still togeth-


er after all those years of turmoil
and temerity. The easiest thing in
all the world is to fall in love for a
few years and then, when it gets
difficult, bail out.
What kind of romance is that?
Ah, but to see a couple married
for 50 years or more now that
is the epitome of real romance
I'll have you know that
romance has not been a stranger
at the parsonage. I met my wife
(actually, she wasn't my wife
then) when I went away to Bible
college in 1970.
At the time, I was functionally
romance-challenged (it was more
dysfunctional).
Before I left home for college, I
prayed for a wife. I had the good
sense to know a minister needs a
good wife to support him in the
ministry.
The Christian ministry is real-
ly a joint affair, although the pas-
tor's wife does not always get the
recognition she rightfully
deserves.
I prayed something like this,
"God, I need a good wife and I
don't know how to go about it. Let
the first single girl I meet at Bible
college be the wife of your choos-
ing."
Now, I know this is a crazy and
dangerous prayer to make. Some
would take the high road of
romance, but I took the lowly road
of prayer. I may have been a bit
desperate, but nobody could
doubt my earnestness.
I also figured prayer was a lot
cheaper than dating.
Nevertheless, I prayed for a
wife.
My parents took me to the col-
lege, which was some 500 miles
from home. I remembered my


prayer and wondered just how
God would answer.
As we pulled into the men's
dorm, I figured I was safe. I
planned to avoid all contact with
the opposite sex as long as possi-
ble.
But just as we pulled into the
men's dorm parking lot, a young
woman exited from the men's
dorm. Remembering my prayer, I
immediately amended it. "God,
this doesn't count. I've not
stepped out of the car yet."
Have you ever noticed that
God has a marvelous sense of
humor?
The young woman emerging
from the men's dorm defied
description.
Do you remember when
women rolled their hair in big
rollers? Well, this young woman
had rolled her hair in tomato
cans! Nothing prepared me for
such a sight. She actually looked
like some space alien. (Beam me
up, Scottie!)
I do not know what she was
wearing or even what she looked
like. All I could see were those
tomato cans on her head.
At the time, I did not know
much about romance, but I knew
this was not it.
Classes were not to begin for
several days, and she and the
dorm parents were friends. She
was visiting them just as I
arrived at the dorm.
The next few days, I did every-
thing to avoid the women's dorm
for fear I would run into her.
Whenever I did see her, I
crossed to the other side of the
street. But the more I tried to
avoid her, the more I ran into her.
I thought I was making


progress in my plan of avoidance.
Then, the inevitable happened.
One week after arrival, my
roommate invited me to come
along with him and his girlfriend
to a restaurant. Being the neurot-
ic naive that I am, I said,
"Sure, I'd love to come along."
After all, I had nothing else to
do and it seemed like some fun.
When my roommate went to
the women's dorm to pick up his
girlfriend, who do you suppose
was standing with his girlfriend
waiting?
That's right. The young woman
with the tin cans on her head.
Would you believe it? The
young woman with the tin cans
turned out to be the sister of my
roommate.
It was a whirlwind romance. I
met her in September and in
February, she asked me to marry
her. In August, I found myself at a
church altar mumbling, "I do."
The Bible makes this promise:
'.Whoso findeth a wife findeth a
good thing, and obtaineth favour
of the Lord." (Proverbs '18:22
KJV).
A good wife is the find of a life-
time.

Putting Gratitude In Our Lives


It is probably impossible to overestimate the value of
gratitude. We all know how nice it is to be thanked for
some small kindness or good deed which we have done
for another. And of course, someone who is truly thank-
ful is likely to make us feel so good about ourselves that
we can't wait to perform another act of kindness for
that person. But perhaps more important than the
warm feeling that we get when someone expresses their
gratitude to us, is the positive outlook that gratitude
usually engenders in the person who is grateful. That
is, the feeling of being grateful helps to keep us focused
on the positive. Instead of harping on how bad things
are, or regretting the past, gratitude looks for the posi-
tive aspect and the silver lining. And although we all
may occasionally feel sorry for ourselves, we can allevi-
ate some of these feelings by getting into the habit of
reminding ourselves of how much we have to-be thank-
ful for. Our good health, having friends and family who
care about us, and even something as mundane as
going to work, are truly things for which we ought to be
grateful. We should spend some time each day counting
our blessings. We might be pleasantly surprised to find
that this exercise itself will make our lives better.

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
His love endILure$ 1orm/ er
