Three City Impact Fee


Ordinances on Tap Tonight


THIS FIRE HYDRANT at the corner of Main Street and Wilson time of the fire, it was connected to a four-inch branch line, which may
Avenue the corner in front of the old Tate-Phillips Hardware Store have been a factor in the inability to draw as much water as fire-
building that was destroyed by fire on June 6 will be reinstalled on fighters wanted to fight the blaze. (Democrat photo by Peggy

Tests Show Hydrants Can't



Produce 3,000 GPM Flow


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

Tests conducted in the wake of
the devastating June 6 fire that
destroyed two Main Street build-
ings have determined that fire-
fighters were not able to get the
3,000 gallons per minute of water
that the fire chief said was need-
ed to fight the fire.
The city's water engineering
consultant told the city commis-
sion last month that 3,000 gallons
per minute is the Insurance
Services Office standard for fire
protection, and that his computer
modeling showed that volume
was available during the fire.
The city's tests show it was
not.
Fire Chief Jay Robinson and
Public Works Dir. Bill Pickard
agree that the additional volume
of water could have been achieved
by connecting to hydrants several
blocks from the fire scene.
(Pickard's department is respon-
sible for the installation and
maintenance of the water distrib-
ution system, including fire
hydrants.)
It would have required more
equipment and more manpower,
and it would have been difficult to
run hose lines up to 1,000 feet
through the downtown area
because of the volume of traffic,
Robinson said.
: Both department heads agree
that reinstallation of one fire
hydrant the one at the corner
where the fire started will pro-
vide at least a little bit of


improvement.

More Pre-Fire
Planning Needed
And both agree that the key to
improved fire protection in the
downtown area lies in more pre-
fire planning.
"There are some the things we
are going to look at. We always
felt like we have good hydrants
near the scene," Robinson said.
"We're going to try to put
together a plan of attack to know
that the first truck on the scene
goes here,, and the second truck
goes there. We haven't had that
as part of our pre-fire plan."
The hydrant at the corner of
Main Street and Wilson Avenue,
in front of the former Tate-
Phillips Hardware building
where the fire started, was fed
from a four-inch "branch line"
coming off a six-inch line buried
beneath Main Street. Branch
lines are required to take water
from water mains to the
hydrants.
That hydrant and the branch
line serving it have been dug up.

Branch Line
Was Corroded
Robinson said he has seen pic-
tures showing substantial corro-
sion within that four-inch line,
which would have reduced the
flow. Pickard said he hadn't seen
the photos, but that it would not
be unusual for a branch line to
build up corrosion, because any
given fire hydrant doesn't get
used often. Without water flowing


through the line, corrosion occurs.
That hydrant will be relocated
by 10 or 15 feet, and will be fed by
a six-inch branch line drawing
from an eight-inch water main,
which both officials said will
improve water flow.
As recently as 30 years ago, it
was common to use four-inch
branch lines to supply fire
hydrants, but in more recent
years, six-inch branch lines have
become the standard, Pickard
said. As'far as he knows, all the
other Main Street hydrants are
fed by six-inch lines. Those lines
tap into water mains that range
from six to 16 inches in diameter.
At the July 18 city commission
meeting, Robinson told the com-
mission that he needed 3,000 gal-
lons per minute at the fire scene,
and that he was only able to get
about half that amount. The con-
sulting engineer, Harold Bridges,
told the commission that his com-
puter model showed that the
water system was furnishing that
volume.

Simulation Showed
Available Volume
On July 27, the fire depart-
ment used two trucks in a simu-
lation to determine how much
water could be drawn from two of
the hydrants that were used dur-
ing the fire. The hydrants used in
the test are at Wilson Avenue and
Summerlin Street, and Wilson
Avenue and Davidson Street,
locations that are one block south
and one block north of the fire
scene.


RECONSTRUCTION of this corner of Main redesign, now includes a new six-inch line to the
Street and Wilson, part of the overall Main Street fire hydrant. (Democrat photo by Brett Lowe)


With the/water treatment
plant operating with a pressure
at 60 pounds per square inch, the
pressure maintained during nor-
mal operations, the two trucks
together drew 1,985 gallons per
minute from the system. When
the water plant increased the
pressure to 80 pounds per square
inch, the pressure that was pro-
duced during the Main Street
fire, the volume went to a maxi-
mum of 2,165 gallons per minute,
or about 72 percent of the 3,000
gallons per minute standard.
The Main Street hydrants
were not part of the simulation,
because it would have disrupted
work on the reconstruction pro-
ject now under way, but the Main
Street hydrants probably would
have been competing for the same
volume of water, Pickard said.
In a second simulation, one
truck was hooked up to the
hydrant north of the old civic cen-
ter. That hydrant is attached to a
16-inch line, ,the largest size in
the city. That truck was able to
pump 1,775 gallons per minute,
and the hydrant was capable of
providing even more water but
the truck's capabilities were oper-
ating at maximum, Deputy Fire
Chief Bruce Munroe reported.
Because it is connected to
another water main, water from
that hydrant would not have
drawn down on the water in the
downtown fire hydrants, Pickard
said. As a result, water from that
hydrant, plus water in the down-
town area, would have exceeded
the 3,000 gallons.per minute. '
But it's not quite that simple,
Robinson said.
Most of Bartow's fire trucks
carry 1,000 feet of five-inch hose
to take water from the fire
hydrant to the truck. (Smaller
hoses connected to the trucks to
put water on the fire.)
The hydrant on the 16-inch
main is just short of 1,000 feet
from the fire scene.

Friction Reduces
Water Flow
And while it is capable of pro-
viding at least 1,775 gallons per
minute at the hydrant, the vol-
ume would be reduced substan-
tially by friction as it flowed
through 1,000 feet of hose,
Robinson said.
That problem could be partial-
ly overcome by having one truck
at the hydrant, pumping water
into the hose, and another truck
at the fire sdene, he said. Doing so
would tie up an additional truck
and firefighter.

Imposition of three impact
fees on new construction one
for recreational facilities, one for
roads, and one for other public
facilities will be considered by
the Bartow city commission
tonight.
The recreation impact fee ordi-
nance was adopted on first read-
ing on Aug. 1, and a public hear-
ing will be held on that ordinance
tonight.. It would impose a fee
ranging 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.
Because the city already has
enough recreational facilities to
meet the needs of the comprehen-
sive plan through 2025, the
recreation impact fee is called a
recoupmentt fee" and could be
used "in any lawful manner as
deemed appropriate by the city
commission."
The other two impact fee ordi-
nances will be considered on first
reading tonight, and if passed,
will come up for a public hearing
at the commission's Sept. 6 meet-
ing.
The transportation impact fee
would be $1,050 for single family
homes, regardless of size. Impact
fees for various commercial uses
would be based, in most cases, on
the size of the buildings.
The public facilities impact fee
for homes and commercial build-
ings would be based on the size.
For homes, the fees would range


County Mgr. Mike Herr and
County Atty. Joseph G. Jarret
both received five-figure pay rais-
es from the Polk County commis-
sion on Wednesday and high
marks from commissioners in
their annual evaluations.
Herr received a raise of
$28,000, a little more than 21
percent. His salary went from
$132,000 to $160,000 a year.
Jarret received a raise of
$20,500, nearly 17 percent, tak-
ing his salary from $121,000 to
$141,500.
The raises were approved on a
4-to-1 vote, over the dissent of
Commissioner Randy Wilkinson.
He said that the county's top
executives shouldn't be getting
raises of that amount when the
commission is on the verge of
raising taxes by 30 percent.
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
replied that the proposed one-
mill increase in property taxes
would go entirely for roads, and
would not be used for the pay
raises.
Commissioner Paul Senft
moved the raise to $160,000 for
Herr, noting that Lakeland's city
manager is paid $150,000 and
the school superintendent is paid
$180,000. Herr supervises about
2,100 employees, substantially
more than some county man-
agers whose salaries are much
higher, he said.


from $474 for houses of less than
800 square feet to $844 for homes
of more than 3,600 square feet.
Impact fees are imposed on
new construction to pay for addi-
tional public facilities which are
made necessary as a result of
growth.
The amounts are based on a
consultant's calculations of how
much demand each type and size
of building will create for addi-
tional facilities.
The commission will meet at
5:30 this afternoon for a work
session, and will reconvene at
6:30 for its regular business
meeting.
Other items on the agenda:
Public hearings and final
passage of nine land use and
development ordinances:
(1) Changing the comprehen-
sive plan designation from "low
density residential" to "medium
density residential" on a 1.1-acre
parcel of land in East Bartow,
most of the block bounded by Bay
Street, Sixth Avenue, Magnolia
Street, and Seventh Avenue.
(2) Assignment of "low density
residential" (LDR) land use to a
parcel of 16.7 acres of property on
Gandy Road between Peace
River Estates Units 1 and 2.
(3) Assignment of LDR land
use to 64 acres of James property
on the south end of the Silver
Companies development between
U.S. Highway 98 and E.F. Griffin
Road, and assignment of agricul-
tural land use to 117 acres imme-
diately south of that parcel.
(4) Assignment of LDR land


In their annual performance
evaluations by the commission,
rankings made on a scale of 4 to
10, Herr received an overall rat-
ing of 9.5 from four commission-
ers. Wilkinson declined to rate
him. He said he could not give
Herr a passing grade, but did not
want his numerical evaluation to
pull down Herr's score.
Jarret received an overall rat-
ing of 9.2.
Herr scored 9.6 on general
skills and traits, and 9.4 on spe-
cific job responsibilities. He
received grades of 9 or 10 in most
of the 14 areas on which he was
evaluated by each of the commis-
sioners, with no score lower than
8.
Jarret received scores of 9 or
10 in all 10 areas on his evalua-
tion, except from Wilkinson, who
assigned a score of 5 (needs
improvement) for quantity of
work and 6 (satisfactory) for
quality of work. Jarret's overall
scores were 9.2 on general skills
and traits and 9.24 on specific job
responsibilities.
In their individual comments
on job performance, all commis-
sioners, including Wilkinson, had
positive comments for Herr.
Commissioner Bob English
said: "Well organized; under-
stands the operations of each
county agency, and how best they
function together as a team."

Wilkinson said: "Excellent
customer service skills."
Myers called Herr "hard work-
ing, easy to work with depart-
ment directors," and praised him
for improved relations with
municipalities.
Senft credited him with creat-
ing an atmosphere "where
employees are comfortable being
creative and innovative.", :-
Commissioner Sam Johnson
called him "hard working,
responsive to (commission) direc-
tion, willing to make decisions."
But in his final comments,
Wilkinson wrote: "As much as I'd
like to, I cannot give the county
manager (or county commission)
a passing grade due to the failure
in stewardship oftax dollars and
30 percent tax increase called
for."
All commissioners except
Wilkinson, who added no com-
ments to his evaluation, had good
things to say about Jarret: "Goal
oriented ... strong leader who
leads by example.. very knowl-
edgeable ... very protective of
(commission) ... on top of the
issues."
The county's evaluation form
assigns grades ranging from 4
(unsatisfactory) to 10 (outstand-
ing). The form does not allow a
rating lower than 4.

with fines collected from individuals convicted of
criminal offenses, other than capital felonies.
"These vans will be rolling all over the county, dis-
playing prevention tips and safety messages, and
criminals wrote the check," Sheriff Grady Judd
said. (Staff photo by Jennifer Starling)

Citiheat To Perform In Lkld.


City of Lakeland will play
host to the fall season of Lake-
land Electric's Music on the
Promenade starting Friday, Aug.
19, when jazz guitarist Les Sa-
bler and the band Citiheat take
the stage from 6 to 9 p.m. during
the free music series.
Sabler is a national recording
artist that has been described as
"dynamic like John Scofield, me-
lodic like George Benson, and
compelling like Jeff Beck."
He can be heard on Tampa's
jazz radio station WSJT and his
single "Reasons" continues to re-
ceive substantial play in many
markets across the country.
Citiheat has pleased crowds
at many Florida jazz clubs as
well as area performing art cen-
ters. Their musical style ranges


from instrumentals to tender
ballads to covers of Carlos San-
tana and Al Jarreau.
The monthly music series
takes place at the Lake Mirror
amphitheater, between Hollis
Garden and the Lake Mirror
Center.
The event is free to the public
and families are encouraged to
attend. There will be food and
drink vendors on site, and fami-
lies should bring blankets or
chairs to enjoy the music.
The fall music schedule also
features Democracy (reggae) in
September and Jr. & the MD's in
October.
For more information regard-
ing the series, contact Kevin
Cook at 834-6264.


Cypress Gardens Opens

New Coaster Wednesday


Cypress Gardens Adventure
Park heads for the final frontier
as its fifth coaster, Galaxy Spin,
blasts off on Wednesday, Aug.
17.
Festivities will continue
through the weekend and in-
clude a ribbon-cutting at 11 a.m.
on Wednesday and other special
events.
Galaxy Spin is a spinning
mouse coaster, a twist on the
more traditional mouse style.
Passengers are strapped into
cars, not a coaster train. The
cars themselves spin as they dip
and dive through the hairpin
twists and turns of the track,
taking passengers on a unique
coaster experience.
"We're proud to launch the
fifth coaster and 39th ride at Cy-
press Gardens Adventure Park.
Galaxy Spin is a wonderful com-
plement to our ride selection, in
keeping with our effort to offer
great family excitement," Kent
Buescher, President/CEO, said.
"I think guests of all ages will
find it a thrilling ride, with'
enough exhilaration to keep the


thrill-seekers happy, but not too
intense for our younger and
older guests."
The alien theme is in keeping
with the park's retro atmos-
phere, recalling the fascination
America had with UFO's in the
middle of the last decade.
"When Cypress Gardens was
in its first hey day during the
1950s and 60s, there also was
another phenomenon occurring.
More and more Americans were
looking to the skies for signs of
'little green men,' Buescher
said. "Roswell was a big deal and
reports of alien abductions and
UFO sightings were growing.
When we were searching for our
fifth coaster, the spinning cars
just lent themselves to a UFO
theme. This is our tongue-in-
cheek tribute to that facet of
Americana."
The park is located in Winter
Haven, Florida two miles west of
SR 27 on Cypress Gardens
Boulevard.

Underage drinking is one of
America's most pervasive prob-
lems, causing death and injury
to far too many young people
every year.
According to the 2004 Florida
Substance Abuse Survey, alcohol
( is by far the most commonly
used drug among Florida's stu-
dents with a lifetime use rate of
57.5 percent and 32.3 percent for
past-30-day use.
Mothers Against Drunk Driv-
Sing (MADD) believes that young
people must be an integral part
of the solution to this serious
problem. That is why MADD
Florida is organizing its first
state youth summit to prevent
underage drinking.
One high school student from
each of the 160 legislative dis-
tricts will be selected to attend
the State Youth Summit and ad-
dress the problem of youth ac-
cess to alcohol.
During the three-day summit,
students will work with their
peers, law enforcement officials
and media. The students will
present their solutions on how
they think the underage drink-
ing crisis should be handled to
key policymakers and the public.
In addition, the Summit will
educate youth about the physical
damages and consequences of al-
cohol and drugs so they are
equipped to make healthy life
choices and train youth as capa-
ble leaders who have a powerful,
positive influence on their peers


and communities.
The MADD Florida State
Youth Summit to Prevent Un-
derage Drinking will be held in
Tallahassee, Oct. 9-11, 2005.
Applications can be obtained
by visiting www.madd.org/fl or
by contacting Terri Sue Ald-
ridge-Russell at MADD Florida
via e-mail at maddfll@earth-
link.net or by calling 1-850-681-

Card of Thanks
Words cannot express our
deep appreciation of the
kindnesses that were
shown to us during the ill-

outpouring of love and
concern was overwhelm-
ing. Thanks for all the
prayers and support. We
really do live in a wonder-
ful community.

Cable Service Is Substandard


Uh-oh.
The chads are dangling again.
And we can't blame this one
on Broward County snowbirds.
Or even on Katherine Harris.
Eighteen hanging chads have
been found in Oklahoma, in the
vote by which the General
Council of the Seminole Nation of
Oklahoma expressed its outrage
over Florida State University's
use of the Seminoles as its athlet-
ic mascot.
The vote to take umbrage over
my alma mater's mascot was 18-
to-2.
Against.
That's right.
Ninety percent of the big
kahunas were not offended.
David Narcomey (since when do
tribal chiefs have names like
David Narcomey?) forgot to men-
tion that when he informed the


National Collegiate Athletic
Assn. about the council's resolu-
tion of outrage.
In earlier times it would have
been said, at least by the Indians
in those cowboys-and-Indians
movies of my youth, that he
spoke with forked tongue.
The tribe's attorney general
has told the NCAA that
Narcomey was not authorized to
speak on behalf of the council
and that he had "misrepresent-
ed" its position.
Even lying has a politically
correct term.
The NCAA already had
acknowledged that the Florida
Seminoles, for whom Florida
State's Seminoles are named,
kind of like having their name
and stylized image attached to a
national championship football
team. The NCAA based its decla-


ration that FSU's mascot was
"hostile and abusive" on the
opposition of the Oklahoma
Seminoles.
Turns out, it was based on the
opposition of two Oklahoma
Seminoles. Probably graduates of
the Other University of Florida in
Gainesville.
The NCAA's Walter Harrison,
whose lame-brained committee
came up with the idea of ordering
all 18 collegiate teams with
Indian mascots to change their
names by next February, said that
FSU just might win an appeal to
the NCAA's executive commit-
tee.
"I don't know how we would
vote on it, but it would seem to be
good grounds for a waiver
request," he said. In fact, he
acknowledged that he already
had decided to listen to FSU


before he discovered that the total
opposition to the team name
comes from two people in
Oklahoma, one of whom has
been labeled a liar by his tribe's
attorney general.
FSU President T.K. Wetherell
already had vowed to fight the
ruling all the way to the Supreme
Court, if necessary.
And FSU has hired Barry
Richard, the lawyer who success-
fully argued that George W. Bush
had won the Presidential election
fair and square, or at least fair
and square enough for govern-
ment work.
I'm not sure we even want to
give the NCAA a chance to
reverse its stupidity; it might be
more fun to take them to court.
I smell victory.

styles, legitimate needs, help to
re-establish workable budgets
and set priorities for what needs
to be done first, etc.
Commissioners and our new
city manager have been working
on the 2005-2006 budget and
there is serious consideration
about raising the city tax rate
from 1 mill to somewhere.up to 5
mills. Having watched past city
managers struggle to make ends


meet, just as every family does, it
is apparent to me that some tax
hike seems justified if our city
,infrastructure is to be maintained
and we are ever to grow and
prosper as a city.
At the last commission meet-
ing on Aug. 9, I watched with
mixed emotions, a decision that
was made that I felt is a wonder-
ful opportunity for Fort Meade,
slipping through our fingers: I
know first hand that Dennis
Guenther has worked long and
hard to obtain a grant of $112,500
to bring a sports complex to our
city. It is my understanding that
the cost to procure 40 acres at
approximately $3,750 per acre
would be about $150,000. After
deducting the $112,500 grant, we
would still need about $37,000 to
fund this project. The Polk
County school board has agreed
to contribute $15,000 toward this
effort, leaving balance of only
$22,500 or less to fund this pro-
ject. It is my understanding that


we will lose this $112,500 grant if
we don't make some decisions
and select a site and notify the
appropriate authorities authoriz-
ing the grant by Oct. 31.
As I pondered this dilemma
and realize how little the city
needs to come up with, it seems
to me that is would be a
"tragedy" if the city were
deprived of this opportunity to
have a sports complex that would
provide an adult softball field,
youth football field, youth soccer
field, girls' softball fields, a public
swimming pool, concession stand
and restrooms. It is also my
understanding that the county
has agreed to provide substantial
support in the maintenance of
this sports arena. I can foresee
many sports competitions taking
place in Fort Meade, with com-
petitors from surrounding cities,
and our city taking in a lot of
money through a concession
stand and developing many
strong athletes we can be proud


of.
I recognize that budgets are
tight, but it seems reasonable to
me that this new proposed sports
complex should rank as an
extremely high priority com-
pared to many other more rou-
tine items. The kids in this town,
and the adults too, deserve the
opportunity to have a sports
complex. We owe it to our chil-
dren to give them something con-
structive to improve themselves
and derive the feeling of achieve-
ment and keep them off the
streets and out of the "crime and
gang scene."
If it's funding of the $20,000
plus it takes, I will personally
head up a city-wide fund raiser to
procure the monies needed to
make this beautiful opportunity
happen. It's time to step up to the
plate and do what it takes to sup-
port the efforts to being the sports
complex to Fort Meade.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Where Is Everything?


BARTOW Why do the peo-
ple of the Bartow area have to
keep putting up with probably
the worst cable in the nation? 'I
can't imagine that another cable
service would be allowed to stay


in business for more than a few
months with the kind of service
we get from Comcast.
For the past few days the cable
has been on and off so many
times I stopped counting. And


we pay over $50 a month for the
minimum service, a service
where half the channels are fuzzy.
I've tried to watch channel 44,
and for weeks it has been snowy.
I won't go' into all the others that
look as though there is a snow-
storm.
Why can't the city award a
franchise to a cable company that
will give us "viewable" service
and not charge us an arm and a
leg for something that is so irri-
tating?
I know I'm not alone with
these opinions. I guess the best
way to resolve this problem is for
people to call city hall and com-
plain to the powers that be.
I hope somebody will do
something about this problem
instead of letting it go on and or.
and we all buy the discs.
J.E. BRISCOE


I had been thinking that I was
losing my mind. Couldn't find
anything.
Didn't remember where I had
put it, whatever it was. And then
last Friday I started finding
things, all sorts of things..
Thought I should make an
appointment to have myself
checked for Alzheimer's. And
then I looked under the sink in
my bathroom.
I will not mention any names
here, but the lady who comes in
occasionally to clean the house is
evidently a neat freak. She puts
things away. When she leaves,
everything is put away.
Everything: If there is a little
space somewhere, she will put
something in it. I won't. I will put
it where I can find it. Silly me.
This popped into my mind last


week when I found my new
string of pearls.
They were in a little black vel-
vet box in a drawer in the middle
of the dresser. That drawer is sup-
posed to contain scarves, gloves,
and handbags. That is it. The
pearls were supposed to be in a
drawer on the left side at the top
of the dresser. If I hadn't opened
it by mistake, I would have never
known what happened to them.
My cleaning lady is a neatnik
freak. I am relieved to find out
that I am not losing my mind and
am canceling my appointment
with the shrink.
I had wondered why the hall
closets looked so neat. The closet
that contains the vacuum cleaner
looks like it is a picture out of
"Symmetrically Clean." The hall
closet never looked symmetrical,


but I did know where everything
was. The linen closet the same
thing. It looks great, but I can't
find anything.
I am still writing this column
in e-mail. My Word Perfect is still
printing everything I write in let-
ters so tiny you can't even tell


they are letters. I know the clean-
ing lady didn't do that. I am not
mentioning her name because
she is a very good cleaning lady
and I don't want her to read this.
Shhh.
Mum's the word.

Ribbon Cutting For Deb's Collection

Used Furniture and Antiques Store


A Greater Bartow Chamber of
Commerce ribbon-cutting for
Deb's Collection Used Furniture
and Antiques took place on

Hydrants

(Continued from Page 1)
"I believe theoretically that
could be done if you had enough
personnel and equipment,"
Robinson said.
"I made the decision that it
wasn't going to make a difference
in the outcome of that particular
fire. The whole issue is that it's a
more labor intensive operation if
we have to use relay pumps."
With assistance from the
Winter Haven and Polk County
fire departments, Robinson had
four trucks attached to hydrants,
but because of the water supply,
it was never possible to have
more than three in operation at
the same time, he said.
The fire started in a lighting
ballast on the second floor of the
old Tate-Ph illips buldin v' and"g
spread to the adjoining building,
which was once the Ritz Theater.
Both were demolished.
The fire was stopped before it
could destroy the remainder of
the block.
Pickard said that several
Main Street water lines and fire
hydrants are -being relocated
because of the Main Street
redesign project.
"I think when we do flow tests
after the work is finished we're
going to see some increase in
flow," Robinson said.

Flow Tests
Provide Estimates
Flow tests are conducted by
attaching a meter to a hydrant,
then turning on the hydrant to
measure the volume of water
coming from it..From that, a for-
mula is used to estimate the vol-
ume of water that could be
pumped from the hydrant by a
fire truck.
That number is only an esti-
mate, given ideal circumstances,
Pickard said. Simulations, in
which trucks actually draw
water from the hydrants, are a
more accurate test.
The city has more than 1,000
fire hydrants, and it takes a two-
man crew a year to flow check
each' one of them. That was done
around 1994, and again in 2004,
Pickard said.
Other work is planned.
The hydrant located at the
northeast corner of Main and
Broadway has defective for a
year, and will be replaced,
Pickard said.
Another task on the drawing
board is replacement of an
underground water valve near
the fire scene. It is broken, and
until it is dug up, there's no way
to tell whether it's open, closed,
or partially closed, Pickard said.
That work will be done at
night, because water service to a
wide area around the defective
valve will be shut off, he said.
At the July 21 city commission
meeting, City Mgr. Joseph J.
DeLegge told the commission
there was a lot of "defensive pos-
turing" by Pickard, Robinson,
and Water Department Director
Ronald Johnson.
Robinson said that a few days
later, the three department
heads met with DeLegge and
Asst. City Mgr. Linda Weldon.
"It was a very productive
meeting," he said.
"It kind of cleared the air."

Three Parma wallabies, in-
cluding a baby just out of the
pouch, can now be seen at
Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gar-
dens as part of a national breed-
ing program to ensure the future
of this endangered species.
Parma wallabies were once
thought extinct in the wild. They
are the smallest of the kangaroo
family being more than 15 times
smaal th 4th. e eed kangarpqs,
which can be::seen along with
two other kangargo species at
Naples Zoo.
Parma wallabies, a small
marsupial from Australia, were
unknown to the scientific com-
.munity until the 1840s. But lit-
tle more than a century later
they were declared extinct in
1957 because of over-hunting,
clearing of forests, and predation
by the foxes and cats introduced
by Europeans.
But unlike the dodo bird or
Javan tiger, the tale of the
Parma wallaby doesn't end sadly
there.
For the reason why, we turn
to tiny Kawau Island, located
northeast of New Zealand.
In the 1860s, a wide assort-
ment of exotic plants and ani-
mals were introduced to the is-
land with the vision of creating a
unique place for visitors.
Lost to the outside world, one
of those species was the Parma
wallaby.
But life on Kawau for Parma
wallabies was a dream island va-
cation turned nightmare. Walla-
bies happily, ate away at first,
but just as rabbits had done on
Australia, the wallabies began
wreaking ecological havoc by
contributing to the loss of hun-
dreds of native plant species and
the animals that depended on
those plants.
And so, in a desperate act to
preserve 'the island's own flora
and fauna, the government be-
gan a systematic extermination
of wallabies.
Two thousand or more Parma
wallabies were killed in less
than a decade. But in 1965, the
true identity of this marsupial
was discovered and the extermi-
nation efforts were put on hold
while many of these endangered

'Four

Agreements'
Program Set
"The Four Agreements," a
book by Don Miguel Ruiz, will be
the focus of a Winter Haven Hos-
pital's Learning Series program
on Tuesday, Aug. 23, from 7 to 8
p.m.
The program is planned in the
hospital's classrooms.

animals were secured from Ka-
wau Island and dispersed to fa-
cilities around the world for
breeding.
"It's as if rabbits went extinct
across Europe and no one knew
that Australia was littered with
them," explains Tim Tetzlaff, the
Zoo's director of conservation.
The renewed interest in
Parma wallabies brought about
a, historic surprise much like
the recent .sighting of the for-
merly thought- extinct ivory-
billed woodpecker in Arkansas.
A remnant population of se-
cretive Parmna wallabies was dis-
covered back in Australia in the
forests of New South Wales in
the 1960s.
"Were it not for the Kawau
discovery, I wonder if the main-
land population would have qui-
etly faded away without protec-
tion," said Tetzlaff.
Still facing environmental is-
sues after all these years, the
New Zealand Department of
Conservation determined in
2002 that all wallabies must be
removed from the island and a
final opportunity was given to a
new generation of zoo conserva-
tionists to preserve this endan-
gered species.
Through the cooperative ef-
forts of many institutions accred-
ited by the American Zoo and
Aquarium Association, a new
group of Parma wallabies was
rescued.
One of the Zoo's wallabies was
part of the last exodus in 2003.
The future of this endangered
species now rests in its limited
range in New South Wales and
in the hands of accredited zoos
that care for these amazing ani-
mals resurrected from extinc-
tion.
So just what is a Parma wal-
laby?
Parma wallabies are marsupi-
als which live in rainforests and
dry forests with ,thick under-
growth and grassy areas.
Adults resemble tiny kanga-
roos with rich brown fur and
weigh between eight and 12
pounds. As herbivores, more
than 90 percent of their diet is
grass.
Parma wallabies are the most'

nocturnal, have the longest tail
length relative to its body size;
and are the most endangered of
all wallaby species.
Like other marsupials, Parma
wallabies carry their young in a
belly pouch. After just a 35 day
gestation period, the joey makes
its way to the mother's pouch
where it remains for another
seven to eight months.
Wallabies, like other macro-.
pods, often give birth to a second
offspring while the first is still
nursing.
Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gar-
dens is located at 1590
Goodlette-Frank Road in Naples
across from the Coastland Cen-
ter mall.
In addition to innovative pres-

Fiction and Planet Predator, the

DUI Patrol
Planned This
Weekend

Mulberry Police Department
will conduct a DUI saturation
patrol on Friday, Aug. 19, in the
vicinity of State Road 60 in Mul-
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."


Health
Program
Planned
"Living Life To the Fullest," a
Winter Haven Hospital program
is set Wednesday, Aug. 24, from
6 to 7:30 p.m.
The class will be held at the

Meeting for the first time this
school year on Tuesday, the Polk
County school board recognized
the achievements of several of its
schools and students, and spent
time discussing the impact fee
controversy.
Progress Energy was recog-
nized for its donation of $31,000
to the Polk Education
Foundation in order to further
improve the study of math and
science.
Student winners of the
Family, Career and Community
Leaders of America and Health
Occupations Students of America
state competitions also were rec-
ognized, including Natasha
Winniczuk from Winter Haven
High School, who scored highest
in the nation in her FCCLA cate-
gory.
Twenty-one Polk County
schools earned the Five-Star
School award from the Florida
Dept. of Education, the second
highest number of schools named
in Polk since the start of the
Five-Star program.
Three of those schools -
Inwood Elementary of Winter
Haven, Lake Gibson Middle and
Lawton Chiles Middle of
Lakeland have received this
distinction every year since the
program's inception, for a total of,
nine awards each.


Criteria for Award
The Five-Star Award is given
to schools which score at least a
C and have strong community
service and involvement efforts'
which include family, volunteers,
school advisory councils, and
business partners.
Also recognized were Caldwell
Elementary and Lena Vista
Elementary of Auburndale; Dale
R. Fair Babson Park Elementary
of Babson Park; Bartow
Elementary Academy, Bartow
High, and Bartow International
Baccalaureate of Bartow;
Pinewood Elementary of Eagle
Lake; Highland City Elementary
of Highland City; Hillcrest
Elementary of Lake Wales; Blake
Academy, Dixieland Elementary,
Lincoln Avenue Academy, North
Lakeland Elementary, Padgett
Elementary, Rochelle School of
the Arts, and Wendell Watson
Elementary of Lakeland; and
Brigham Academy and Snively
Elementary of Winter Haven.
Board members also recog-
nized Sam Bennett for winning
the state Teacher of the Year
award.

History Grant
The board approved the
Teaching American History
Grant of $999,807, which will
support extensive professional
development of teachers' knowl-
edge and understanding of tradi-
tional American'history in order
to raise student achievement.


WIU Football
Open House
Set Thursday
Webber International Univer-
sity will hold a "Business After
Hours" event on Thursday, Aug.
18, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Rex R.
Yentes Conference Center on
campus.
The event, billed as a WIU
football open house, will feature
members from the Frostproof,
Winter Haven and Lake Wales
Chambers of Commerce.
For more information on the
event, or to RSVP, call 638-2953.


The most discussed issue of
the day was the question of
increasing impact fees for new
homeowners and businesses to
provide more funds for the con-
struction of new schools.
Board Member Jack English
was concerned that the impact
fees were being tied to the class
size amendment, which he
believed should be funded by the
state Legislature.
He also questioned the concept
of impact fees, stating that as the
longest resident of Polk County
on the board, he could not under-
stand why some of the trans-
plants wanted to "close the door
behind them" now that they had
arrived.

$227 Million Short
In disagreement was Board
Member Margaret Lofton, who
focused on the urgent need for
more money, saying that the
board could not. afford to wait
until the Legislature sends more.
She said the county is $227 mil-
lion short of what it needs in.
order to construct the 12 elemen-
tary schools, two middle schools,
and one high school required by
the class size amendment:
The impact fees would raise a
projected $50 million per year.
At the end of the day, the
school board members recognized
that their role would at most be
an advisory one, as the ultimate
decision rests in the hands of the
county commission.


Meals On Wheels Has New Head Chef


Few people would have
blamed Kathleen Walsh if, upon
learning her Florida dream
home was hit by three hurri-
canes in less than two months,
she had reconsidered.the move.
Fortunately for the hundreds
of Winter Haven area residents
who depend upon her daily for
hot, nutritious meals, Mrs.
Walsh did not give up.
"I love Florida," she said. "I've
wanted to live in Florida for as
long as 'I can remember."
Mrs. Walsh said she found the
perfect job shortly after making
the move to Winter Haven from
her native Connecticut.
After volunteering several
months as a driver delivering
food for Meals on Wheels of
Greater Winter Haven Inc., Mrs.
Walsh became the head chef in
May.
"I was very much interested
in working with elderly people.
This is a wonderful job. I get to'
cook for them and later I deliver
the meals," she said. "I'm ecstati-
cally happy."
Kathy Lister, the executive di-
rector at Meals on Wheels, is
glad hurricanes Charley, Fran-
ces and Jeanne didn't scare Mrs.
Walsh and her husband, Jim,
away.
"We saw that she already had
a lot of good training," Ms. Lister
said. "It showed up in her profes-
sional behavior and handling of
food."
Mrs. Walsh, who earned a
bachelor of science degree in nu-
tritional sciences from the Uni-
versity of Connecticut in 2004,
also works with Ms. Lister in
planning, special menus for
nearly 40 Meals on Wheels cli-
ents with special needs, such as
low sugar, fat or salt.
The Walshes had family living
in Florida and had visited the
state many times, so they began
planning to move from Norwich,
Conn., to the Sunshine State
long before Jim Walsh retired as
the Norwich fire chief this Janu-
ary.
Their new Winter 'IHaveen
home was nearly completed
when Hurricane, Charley caused
minor damage on Aug. 13. Fran-
ces and Jeanne caused addi-
tional problems, but the storms


did not deter the Walshes.
In fact, the closing was sched-
uled three days after Jeanne
passed. Unfortunately, the Wal-
shes hadn't reserved ,a' hotel
room in Winter Haven for the oc-
casion. After many calls to local
hotels went unanswered, Mrs.
Walsh finally reached one and
asked about a room.
"There was just a laugh. Then
finally he said, 'Lady, we don't
even have electricity,' she said.
"It was nerve wracking, but it all
worked out in the end." ,
The couple was prepared to
use sleeping bags on the floor of
their new home until the real es-
tate agent found a room in a ho-
tel with electricity, Mrs. Walsh
said.
On a drive through their new
hometown after the closing, Mrs.
Walsh saw the Meals on Wheels
office. She knew the Norwich
Meals on Wheels as a UConn
student, and made a mental note
to inquire about becoming a vol-
unteer.
When she made the call in
March to inquire about volun-
teering, a Meals on Wheels staf-
fer asked Mrs. Walsh if she could
. come over in an hour and a half.
The kitchen was short staffed
that day with people putting to-
gether meals for each client.
For the first several weeks,
Mrs. Walsh did kitchen prep
work and delivered meals for
about two days a week,
Then she moved up to five
days a week, and her profession-
alism in the kitchen caught Ms.
Lister's eye.
Meals on Wheels had an open-
ing for a head' chef, and Ms.
Lister, offered the job to Mrs.
Walsh, who quickly accepted.
The job allows her to use the
skills she developed at UConn
plus the more than 13 years with
the southeast Connecticut social
services agency.
Ms. Lister said she prepares
the menus and that Walsh takes
them home to run them through
her computer.
Mrs. Walsh brings the analy-
sis back the next day.
"We're a good team," Ms.
Lister said. "She's doing well."
At home each night, Mrs.
Walsh uses menu-planning soft-

ware with a large database of
foods and their nutritional con-
tent, including calories, salt and
fat.
It makes it easy to develop a
nutritious main menu for most
of the Meals on Wheels clients
and to substitute other food
items for people with special di-
ets.
"It's very fulfilling to help peo-
ple with special needs," Mrs.
Walsh said.
Mrs. Walsh learned cooking
while studying nutrition in col-
lege and as a mother to her own
children and stepmother to her
husband's kids.
Even before studying nutri-
tion, Mrs. Walsh was not the
kind of mother who relied on fast
or frozen food when it came to
her children.
"I've always been concerned
about good food and good eating,
especially as it relates to health,"
Mrs. Walsh said. "My children
suffered through it. They'd say
'Oh, no! We've got to eat all these
vegetables.'"
Based at 620 Sixth Street in
Winter Haven, Meals on Wheels
is a non-profit organization that
provides freshly cooked meals to
homebound Winter Haven-area
residents on a daily basis. All
meals are prepared by and deliv-
ered by a staff of volunteers.
During the past year, Meals
on Wheels' 350 volunteers pre-
pared and delivered more than
60,000 nutritious hot meals to
homebound people in Winter
Haven, Lake Alfred and Auburn-
dale.
On a typical day, 65 volun-
teers are involved in preparing
and delivering 200 nutritious
meals.
Anyone interested in volun-
teering to cook, drive or serve
Meals on Wheels in any other ca-
pacity can call Ms. Lister or Bar-
bara Levay at 299-1616.

University of Florida re-
searchers have learned how to
selectively shut down a fly-
weight-sized genetic molecule
that packs a heavyweight punch,
a discovery that may help doc-
tors better understand cancer,
birth defects and other health
problems.
The finding, which will be re-
ported this week in the online
Proceedings of the National
Academy of Sciences, deals with
tiny strands of genetic material
called microRNAs.
Once thought to be little more
than cellular debris, these short
strands of RNA may perform a
vital role in healthy development
by strategically turning off gene
activity.
By genetically modifying
mice, scientists with the UF Ge-
netics Institute were able 'to get
the first-ever picture of how
limbs would develop in a verte-
brate without the help of mi-
croRNAs. When microRNAs
were not available to turn off
certain genes, the mice grew
malformed, nonfunctional limbs.
The finding may provide in-
sight into human birth defects,
but scientists say its greater
value will be as a new technique
to study the function and mal-
function of microRNAs, more
than 200 types of which are
thought to exist in the human
body.
"We looked at limb develop-
ment because it's a great place to
demonstrate the technique," said
Brian Harfe, Ph.D., an assistant
professor of molecular genetics
and microbiology in the College
of Medicine and lead author of
the report. "We were able to
show it's feasible to eliminate.
the activity of microRNAs from a
specific tissue while the rest of
the tissue remains normal."
Had researchers inhibited mi-
croRNAs in every single cell,
Harfe-said the mouse embryos
would survive little more than
seven days after fertilization.
"That isn't enough time to
study development," Harfe said.
"Most structures, such as the
heart, the gut and the lungs, ha-
ven't even formed yet. Now we
can bypass the problem of early
mortality and study the struc-
tures as they develop. It's a new '
tool for the genetic researcher's
toolbox."

No more than five years ago,
microRNAs were considered to
be little more than light season-
ing in the genetic soup, distant
and unnecessary cousins to the
main ingredients, DNA, which
contains all the genetic instruc-
tions for the human body, and
RNA, which translates DNA's
message into proteins the
building blocks of life.
Scientists now think the pint-
sized pieces of RNA may control
as much as one-third of human
gene expression by seeking out
and binding to messenger RNA,
thereby adjusting the protein-
manufacturing process.
But for microRNAs to do their
jobs, scientists believe an en-
zyme called Dicer must be pre-
sent. Harfe, who worked in col-
laboration with researchers at
the University of California at
San Francisco and the Harvard
Medical School, genetically
modified mice so that scientists
could eliminate Dicer in specific
tissues at any stage in the devel-
opmental process, thus opening
a window into the role of microR-
NAs in limb development.
In cases where Dicer is not
present in developing limb tis-
sue, Harfe showed that microR-
NAs were not processed and
limbs were visibly smaller.
"Many of the birth defects we
see in people are mimicked by
the defects we've seen in this
mouse model," said Xin Sun,
Ph.D., an assistant professor of
genetics at the University of
Wisconsin who is familiar with
the research but who did hot
participate in it.
"It indicates mutations in mi-
croRNAs might be responsible
for birth defects, and this has
not been discovered before. Us-
ing this same approach, we can
look at other embryonic organs
and ask what microRNAs do as a
group."
Other research indicates mi-
croRNAs may play a role in dis-
eases ranging from cancer to
AIDS.
"There is indirect evidence
that if you remove two microR-
NAs from the human genome,
leukemia develops," Harfe said.
"We envision our mouse model
may be a tool to directly test how
microRNAs are involved in hu-
man cancers."
