Mixed Use Development Said


Key To Progress In Downtown


HURRICANE KATRINA'S outer bands may
have contributed to this weekend's rain storms, but
an overly wet rainy season has already made flood-
ing a problem in Polk County, especially near Lake


Wales. Downtown Bartow takes on an abstract
quality when viewed through the wet window of a
car at Summerlin Street and Broadway. (Staff
photo by Peggy Kehoe)


Bartow should encourage
mixed use of downtown buildings,
with shops and offices on the
ground floor and residences on
upper stories, a planning consul-
tant told the Bartow Community
Redevelopment Agency.
"Retail will follow" if down-
town becomes a major residential
area, Emily Fischbein, a planner
with Civic Design Associates of
Delray Beach, told the CRA. Civic
Design conducted the agency's
marketing study.
The half-block on Main Street
that was destroyed by fire on
June 6 is an ideal location to con-
sider construction of a three-story
or four-story mixed use building,
she said.
That property, at Main Street
and Wilson Avenue, the vacant
property on which the Talisman
Restaurant was located before it
was destroyed by fire, and the
Oaks Parking Lot due south of
the post office are&all prime candi-
dates for mixed use development,
Ms. Fischbein told the CRA.
She suggested that the agency
consider creating an incentive
program for the first two or three
investors who come to the down-


GOP Executive Committee


Opposes New Polk Taxes


town area.
These could include low inter-
est loans, a refund of tax incre-
ment taxes, or subsidies to build
on vacant downtown property or
to rent vacant downtown build-
ings, she said. For instance, the
CRA could offer to pay half of the
rent for a specified period of time,
or could pay the cost of relocating
a business to the downtown area.
She also suggested that an
incentive could be established for
developing residential units in
the downtown area.
She said that any incentives
should be offered for a limited
time to create momentum in
downtown development.
The property on which a
mobile home park is located on
West Main Street would be a good
site for development of housing
for county employees and
lawyers, she said. She called it "a
really important site."
The CRA is considering mak-
ing an effort to purchase that
land.
CRA Board Member Ann
Dunlap asked Ms. Fischbein to
look at the financial feasibility of
buying that property.
Ms. Fischbein suggested that
the CRA expand its support of
downtown activities, to include
outdoor concerts during the lunch
hour to encourage "brown bag"
lunches by county employees and
others.
It is important for the CRA to
continue supporting such activi-
ties as the monthly Friday Fest


events and antique sales, she
said, and perhaps the creation of
a Thursday night event.
She suggested that the CRA
combine its support of such
events with the city, the Chamber
of Commerce, and the Main
Street program.
"You want people to see that
things are happening," she said.
She said that the CRA should
examine the city's land develop-
ment regulations to see if they
create obstacles to downtown
development.
CRA Board Member Terry
Hunter said that the LDRs create
problems with fire codes and
access requirements.
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
said developers could apply for
variances to any troubling
requirements.
Variances create another
obstacle to downtown develop-
ment, Ms. Fischbein replied.
CRA Board Chm. Mayme
Clark said she would like to see
the agency achieve "one really
neat thing," such as attracting a
major restaurant or retailer to
the downtown area.
Turning to the agency's budget,
Hunter moved to create a
$500,000 reserve fund to offer
special incentives for downtown
development. His motion passed
by unanimous vote, as did other
tentative budget appropriations:
$156,00 for administrative
expenses.
$255,000 for 20-year debt
service to pay for Main Street


redesign and improvements to
the intersection of Wilson Avenue
at Van Fleet Drive.
$25,000 for maintenance and
cleaning of the downtown area,
including maintenance of decora-
tive lighting.
$25,000 for the L.B. Brown
House, with priority going to
installation of a sprinkler system
and insurance on the historic
home on Second Avenue.
$50,000 for affordable hous-
ing program incentives.
$30,000 for marketing of
local events, including the
Bloomin' Arts Festival, Historic
Bartow, Inc., and the Juneteenth
Festival.
$147,000 for economic incen-
tives for Downtown Bartow devel-
opment.


Wrong Plant

Site Listed

In Story
A story in Thursday's issue of
The Democrat about the closing
of the Florida's Natural Growers
citrus processing plant in Bartow
gave the wrong location.
The Florida's Natural plant is
located on Spirit Lake Road just
off U.S. Highway 17 North.
The former Orangeco citrus
processing complex on U.S.
Highway 17 South is now Peace
River Cold Storage.


By S. L FRISBIE, IV

In a rare, perhaps unprece-
dented, move, the Polk County
Republican Executive Committee
voted 30-to-4 Thursday night to
urge four Republican county com-
missioners to abandon their sup-
port for a one-mill property tax
increase plus a one-and-a-quar-
ter-mill levy for parks and
libraries.
At the urging of Eric Allen,
chairman of the committee, mem-
bers refrained from individual
attacks on the four commission-
ers, and directed their two-page
letter at the proposed tax
increase.
The letter, which quoted at
length from President Ronald
Reagan, expressed "disappoint-
ment" and "chagrin" at the pro-
posed tax increases, and said the
four commissioners have depart-
ed from the Republican tradition
of smaller government and lower
taxes.
More than 50 people attended
the meeting, but only the 34 com-
mitteemen were allowed to take
part in the discussion.
The letter is addressed to the
four commissioners who have
indicated support for the increase
- Jack Myers, Paul Senft, Bob
English and Sam Johnson.
The only commissioners to
attend the meeting were English,
who has been making speeches
supporting what he calls the
"Renaissance Plan" budget, and
Randy Wilkinson, the only com-
missioner who has vocally
opposed it. Wilkinson is not a tar-
get of the letter, and did not speak
at the meeting.
Allen, chairman of the commit-
tee, said the county tax increase
was discussed at length at the
committee's June meeting. He
was directed to draft a letter
opposing the increase.
"We're not here to bash com-
missioners individually," he said.
"I tjink we have very good
commissioners as a whole. We
may disagree with them on a
position they have taken."
The letter said:
"In 2004, you represented to us
that you were a Republican, you
specifically campaigned on
Republican principles and sought
the support of the Polk County
Republican electorate in the pri-
mary.
"We Republicans believed your
campaign pledge to govern in con-
formity with the Republican prin-
ciples of limited and responsible
government, as well as loWv and


lower taxes on the citizenry.
"We are confident that given
more money to spend, govern-
ment will find a way to spend the
funds."
Polk Countians already are
paying a five-cent local option
gasoline tax and local option sales
taxes of a half-cent for school con-
struction and a half-cent for indi-
gent health care, the letter said.
It said the indigent health care
tax has raised more money than
the county needs.
It called for a commitment to
"limited government and con-
trolled spending."
It asked the four commission-
ers to change their position on the
increases.
Commissioner English
explained his decision to support
the new taxes after campaigning
on a "no new taxes" platform.
"I intend to govern as a
Republican and a businessman,"
he told the committee.
He said he had pledged not to
raise taxes "unless there is a cat-
astrophe," and said that he was
running to improve Polk County
"with a thriving economy and a
first class quality of life."
English said that after being
elected, he determined he could
not meet both promises, and
decided to support higher taxes to
create an improved county.
The Polk Vision program iden-
tified a $372 million "infrastruc-
ture deficit" in roads, parks,
libraries and public safety facili-
ties, he said.
The county staff first told him
there was a $582 million deficit,
he said.
"There was no way we could
eliminate the infrastructure gap
without a tax increase," English
said.
"You are going to hurt Polk


County" if the tax proposal is
defeated, he told the committee,
adding that infrastructure needs
cannot be met with impact fees on
new construction.
One committee member sug-
gested that the tax increase
include a sunsettingg" provision
once the infrastructure gap has
been eliminated.
"Nobody ever likes taxes,"
another committeeman said, but
people whose homes are flooded
need help.
He said his neighbors will
accept the new taxes if the com-
mission will hold firm on higher
impact fees.
Committeeman Scott Wilder, a
high-ranking official in the sher-
iff's office, urged the committee
not to make a firm commitment to
oppose any new taxes. He was one
of the four who voted to oppose
the letter. %
Committeeman Allen Sale said
that Frank O'Reilly, a
Republican, ran for school board
on a platform of raising taxes for
better schools, and won the elec-
tion.
He said county 'commissioners
ran for office on a platform of not
raising taxes.
Committeeman Gene Roberts,
who ran unsuccessfully for county
commission, said commissioners
need to be reminded that they are
accountable to the voters.
"We elected them to represent
us, not to represent their own
beliefs. As a Republican, I believe
in less government and less
taxes," Roberts said.
Committeeman Bill Whatley,
who served on the county zoning
board for 22 years, said develop-
ers presented grand plans for
developments, without providing
for sidewalks, playgrounds, or
land for schools and other public


facilities. He said those facilities
cannot be provided without new
taxes.
He also voted against the let-
ter.
The motion passed by a show-
of-hands vote with four opposing
votes.
Votes in favor were not count-
ed, but Allen said that 34 mem-
bers attended the meeting and
only four voted against it, leading
him to declare the vote to be 30-
to-4.

In a presentation on county
taxes which preceded the vote,
Property Appraiser Marsha Faux
told the committee:
"We have had a 14.1 percent
increase in our tax base. About 35
percent of the addition to the tax
roll is from new construction; the
balance is from revaluing proper-
ties to market values."
Those figures are based on
"willing buyer, willing seller"
home sales, she said.
"We had some substantial
increases in our values," she said.
The market value of her own
home went up 35 percent, she
said.
But for homestead property,
the increase is limited to 3 per-
cent.
That limit applies only to
homestead property homes
that are lived in by the owners.
She said that in the past 25
years, the county commission
village has varied from a low of
4.177 mills in 1984 to a high of
8.727, the proposed rate for 2005.
Last year, the taxable property
value was $20.6 billion. With the
14 percent increase, the tax roll is
$23.5 billion this year.

Worker Drowns Clearing Peace River


A 19-year-old Auburndale man
was found dead Sunday in Peace
River near Oponay Trail, approx-
imately one-half mile east of
Highway 17 near Fort Meade.
Harris, employed by Tampa
Contracting, was assigned to
clean debris near an old private
property access bridge near the
City of Fort Meade, according to
Polk County Sheriff's spokesman
Carrie Rodgers.
He and another worker were
working on the project Saturday
and were attacked by wasps when
they accidentally disturbed a
nest, Ms. Rodgers said.


The wasps got into their cloth-
ing, and the workers both
removed their life jackets and
jumped into the water.
Harris was last seen floating
south down the river with his
hands flailing above his head as
though he was in distress, Ms.
Rodgers said. His co-worker was
able to once again gain the safety
of the barge.
The river current was extreme-
ly strong, with a high level of
water overflowing the banks in
the area under the bridge, Ms.
Rodgers said.
Fort Meade fire and EMS, as


well as Polk County Sheriff's offi-
cers, responded to the scene
Saturday to conduct search and
rescue efforts. The search lasted
throughout the day, but was
called off late Saturday night due
to bad weather.
The search resumed at 6 a.m.
Sunday, when the PCSO USART
Dive Team was called in. The
team located Harris' body at 2:50
p.m., approximately one-fourth
mile from where he entered the
water.
No foul play is suspected, Ms.
Rodgers said.

UF Opens Fooc
Described by researchers as
the first of its kind in the world,
a new Center for Food Distribu-
tion and Retailing has been de-
veloped by the University of
Florida to help the nation's $950
billion retail food industry pro-
vide consumers with high qual-
ity products at affordable prices.
The center will conduct re-
search and education on the en-
tire food distribution chain from
farm to fork, with an emphasis
on perishable food products such
as fresh produce, meat, fish, and
baked goods, said Jeffrey Brecht,
director of the center at UF's In-
stitute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.
He said the center also will fo-
cus on improving packaging de-
sign and developing new tech-
nologies, such as radio frequency
identification on food products to
replace the current bar code sys-
tem and speed customers
through the checkout counter.
"When it comes to perishable
food products which account
for half of all retail food sales -
high losses translate into razor-
thin profits that average about
1.4 percent," Brecht said.
"For perishables, only 19 per-
cent of the retail price represents
the amount paid to growers," he
said. "The balance covers mar-
keting and distribution as well
as losses, which means there are
real opportunities for improving
the process from growers to the
shelves of a retail store."
One of the best ways for a re-
tailer to keep or gain market
share is by presenting a perfect
produce section, Brecht said. The
positive image gives customers a
better perception of the overall
quality of the business.
"In the minds of many cus-
tomers, if the store provides high
quality fresh produce, it is
probably maintaining the same
high quality for other products
in the store," he said.
"However, keeping this 'fres-
hness image' requires an inven-
tory turnover of almost 50 per-
cent each day the highest per-
centage in a retail store after the
meat and fish sections."
As a result, the average lost
revenue for a fresh produce sec-
tion in a supermarket is about
$200,000 per year, said Brecht, a
horticultural sciences professor.
The interdisciplinary center,
which includes scientists from
five UF departments working hi
cooperation with major national
food distributors and retailers,
will generate research-based in-
formation for the food industry,
consumers, and students. Par-
ticipating UF departments in-
clude agricultural and biological
engineering, food and resource
economics, food science and hu-
man nutrition, horticultural sci-
ences, and plant pathology.
Jean-Pierre Emond, an associ-
ate professor of agricultural and
biological engineering and co-di-
rector of the UF center, said
their advisory board includes ex-
ecutives from major supermar-
ket chains such as Ahold, Publix,
and Wal-Mart. More than $1
million in research support com-
mitments have already been re-
ceived from firms such as Fran-
well Inc., in Plant City; Inger-
soll-Rand Co. Ltd., in Bridgeton,
Mo.; and IPL, Inc., in Quebec,


d Disribution, Retailing Center Brake Safety Awareness
Week Is This Week


K










N ~ ~

/


Florida Department of Trans-
portation's Motor Carrier Com-
pliance Office will participate in
Brake Safety Awareness Week
Aug. 28 though Sept. 3.
Brake Safety Awareness
Week is part of the Operation
Air Brake Campaign, an ongoing
effort (since 1998) that is dedi-
cated to improving inspection,
compliance, maintenance, and
performance of commercial vehi-
cle brakes throughout North
America.
Operation Air Brake is spon-
sored by the Commercial Vehicle
Safety Alliance, North America's
leading commercial vehicle
safety enforcement organization.
Braking systems on commer-
cial vehicles are complicated and
contain many parts which need
constant inspection to ensure
proper operation. Brakes com-
prise the largest percentage of


out of service violations cited in
roadside inspections.
During Brake Safety Aware-
ness Week, MCCO will empha-
size education and awareness on
the safe operation of commercial
vehicles.
Officers will visit trucking
companies to speak with drivers,
mechanics and others who im-
pact the safe operation of com-
mercial vehicles, about the im-
portance of commercial vehicle
brake safety.
Variable message boards will
be used to communicate the slo-
gan "Have you checked your
brakes today?"
If you would like to observe
the activities or if you would like
additional information about
this event, contact Lt. Jeff Frost
at 850-245-7908, or 850-251-
2088.


PCSO Luncheon Thursday

To Benefit Tour of Hope


JEFFREY BRECHT (left) and Jean-Pierre Emond, co-directors
of the University of Florida's new Center for Food Distribution and
.Retailing, check pineapples for freshness and quality after ship-
ment from Costa Rica. Brecht said the center the first of its kind
in the world will conduct research and education on the entire
food distribution chain from farm to fork, with an emphasis on per-
ishable food products such as produce, meat, fish, and baked goods.
Emond said the center also will help test and develop new technolo-
gies such as radio frequency identification tags that will eventually
replace traditional bar codes on packages. (AP photo by Thomas
Wright/University of Florida/IFAS)


Canada.
"While the primary focus is
the Florida food distribution and
retailing industry, the UF center
will have an impact on the
worldwide industry," Emond
said. "The center also will intro-
duce new concepts in food distri-
bution and retailing at the un-
dergraduate and graduate levels
as well as through continuing
education programs.
"Outreach efforts will target
the entire food industry, ranging
from growers and packers to
shippers and transportation
services, as well as warehouse
operators, wholesalers, and re-
tailers."
He said radio frequency iden-
tification or RFID is one of
the hottest new technologies in
the distribution and retailing in-
dustry, and it will eventually
make bar codes on products ob-
solete.
"RFID tags will revolutionize
the checkout counter," Emond
said. "Instead of waiting for indi-
vidual food items to scanned,
customers will be able to have
the cost of all their purchases to-
taled electronically in a matter
of seconds."
The tags contain a microchip
and a tiny antenna that send the
price and other information
about the product to a computer.
In the future, the technology will
allow products to be tracked
through every stage of the sup-
ply chain, recording tempera-
ture, shock and other conditions
during shipping, Emond said.


"We will work closely with the
industry to help them adopt
these new technologies to limit
losses and make further im-
provements in freshness, qual-
ity, and safety," Emond said.
He said 40 percent of the per-
ishable produce from Central
and South America enters the
United States through Florida,
making the state a logical site
for the new center. Because of
the rapid globalization of agri-
cultural trade, the center is ex-
pected to become a valuable
source of information for food
distribution.
Scott Charlton, senior vice-
president of manufacturing and
distribution at Publix Supermar-
kets, Inc., in Lakeland, said the
UF center is "a valuable partner
providing a unique level of ex-
pertise that is not readily avail-
able to our industry. It will help
us improve overall quality and
service to our customers."
Jeff Wells, president and chief
executive officer of Franwell Inc.,
said its relationship with the
new food distribution and retain-
ing center is an important stra-
tegic alliance.
"The center provides a plat-
form for our retailing customers
who are competitors to collabo-
rate in solving difficult problems
that affect us all," he said. "This
shared cooperation would not be
possible outside the center,
which provides a framework for
research on neutral ground for
all its members."


A luncheon will be hosted by
the Polk County Sheriffs Office
Thursday, Sept. 1, from 11 a.m.
to 2 p.m., at the Stuart Center
on U.S. Highway 17 in Bartow.
Bunky's barbecue will be
served at $7 per plate.
Live entertainment also will
be provided.
All proceeds will go to the
Tour of Hope event to help PCSO
Sgt. Alan Cloud and Deputy
Sheriff Mark Trexler earn
enough money to participate.
Sergeant Cloud and Deputy
Trexler have to raise at least
$500 to ride in the event.
The Tour of Hope is organized
into four teams of six that will


ride bicycles in a relay fashion
from four to five hours per day
for nine days, Sept. 29-Oct. 8,
from San Diego to Washington,
D.C., to show their commitment
to cancer research, and to invigo-
rate and inform the public about
the importance of participating
in clinical trials.
The ride culminates on Satur-
day, Oct. 8, at the Ellipse in,
Washington, D.C., where partici-
pants in the smaller 50-mile and
10-mile fundraising rides (like
Sergeant Cloud and Deputy
Trexler) will meet with Lance
Armstrong and his 24-person
team in a grand finale.

75th Anniversary Anedotes

The Polk County Democrat

The Polk County Democrat published its first issue
on Aug. 28, 1931. The paper was established by Sayer
Loyal Frisbie and his son, Sayer Lloyd Frisbie. The two
had worked together at newspapers in several states. The
elder Frisbie had moved to Bartow 12 years earlier, where
he bought Bartow Printing Co. and two magazines, The
Citrus Industry and The Fish and Oyster Reporter. His
son moved to Bartow from Tampa, where he was an adver-
tising executive for more than 10 years at The Tampa
Morning Tribune. S. L. Frisbie, IV

Labor Day Is No Holiday For Manatees


,Boat traffic on Florida's wa-
terways can double or even triple
on busy holiday weekends in the
summer.
For the large, slow-moving
manatees who share the crowded
waterways with power boats, jet
skis, and other vessels, this cre-
ates a very dangerous environ-
ment.
Wildlife officials respond to
several rescue calls during a
holiday period.
"Just because a dead manatee
doesn't turn up right after a holi-
day, it doesn't mean that mana-
tees haven't sustained serious
injuries," said Suzanne Tarr,
Save the Manatee Club staff bi-
ologist. "Some manatees live
with permanent injuries, while
others may eventually die."
The increased risk to mana-
tees on the Labor Day weekend
is why it's especially important
for everyone to boat safely.
"In fact," Tarr said, "collisions
with watercraft are the largest
known cause of manatee
deaths.".
There are many ways to be
"manatee smart" on the water-
ways this Labor Day weekend.
For starters, stay in deep wa-
ter channels and follow all
posted boat speed regulations.
And if you see an injured mana-
tee, call the Florida Fish and:
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion at 1-888-404-FWCC (3922)
or #FWC or *FWC on your celli-
lar phone, or use VHF Channel
16 on your marine radio.
Often, people are uncertain
whom to call in an emergency


situation, so having this impor-
tant information handy could
help save a manatee's life.
The club receives many calls
and letters from citizens who are
concerned about the manatees'
safety, as well as their own fam-
ily's boating experience.
"If you follow safe boating
practices, it stands to reason
that it's going to be safer for the
family boater and everything
else out there," said Tarr.
"Manatees are out there every
day, and it's their home we're
just visitors. So be a good stew-
ard by throttling back and giving
manatees a break."
Florida boaters can request a
free, "Please Slow: Manatees Be-
low" banner by contacting the
Save the Manatee Club by e-
mail at education@savethemana-
tee.org, by regular mail at 500

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

We're Beginning Our 75th Year


Editorial





p e

HI m



Base Closings Don't


Have To Be Traumatic


BRAC.
Even the pronunciation of the acronym
has a harsh, almost rude, sound.
Base Realignment and Closure
Commission. The words strike terror in the
hearts of community leaders in every city
and town in America that has a military
installation.
And there are a lot of them.
Arguably, too many.
The immensely unpopular mission of
the BRAC Commission is to decide which
ones will be closed, or at least downsized.
It starts with recommendations of the
Pentagon, fine tunes them, then, sends its
own recommendations to Congress and
the President.
Last week, the BRAC Commission
reversed the Pentagon's recommendation
to close the historic New London, Conn.,
submarine base, but agreed to close Walter
Reed Army Medical Center, replacing it
with a smaller facility at the nearby Naval
Medical Hospital at Bethesda, Md.
The smaller the town in relation to its
military installation, the more traumatic
the closure. TV clips have shown small
business owners saying that three-fourths
of their business comes from members of
the armed forces,
For such businesses, survival will be
tricky indeed.
But closure of a military base need not,
precipitate a: crisis. .... .
Bartow Air Base was opened in 1942 to
train Army Air Corps pilots. After World
War II, some barracks were converted to
apartments for returning soldiers, and the
property was deeded to the city with the
stipulation that it be operated as an air-
port.
From 1950 to 1960, it gained new life as
an Air Force pilot training facility, operated
by two successivee civilian contractors.
It was one of four Florida facilities
closed by the Pentagon in an economy
move in 1960. While the other three com-
munities fought the decision, Bartow will-
ingly resumed operation of the facility as a
community airport, renaming it Bartow
Municipal Airport.
In 1964, a number of vacant buildings
were converted to an industrial park.
Grass grew in the runways, and the indus-
trial park was right Spartan. The airport
was operated as something of a stepchild
of the city manager's office.
In 1967, after a group of local business
leaders sought to lease the airport and


develop it to its potential, the city commis-
sion persuaded the Legislature to create an
airport authority, made up of the five city
commissioners.
The airport authority hired an airport
manager (Ben Durrance, a former city
commissioner and a Naval Reserve avia-
tor) and began aggressively marketing
both the industrial park and the flight
operations.
Bartow Municipal Airport soon became
one of the most successful general aviation
airports in Florida, and it remains so to this
day. Cynthia Barrow is only the second
manager the airport has had in its 38 years
under the airport authority.
Little by little, vacant buildings that
were beyond their useful life were torn
down (one the old gymnasium self-
destructed when the roof and part of the
walls collapsed) and new buildings were
built.
T-hangars for small aircraft and larger
corporate hangers for small jets were
added in phases.
Both the industrial park and the hangars
operate at dose to 100 percent occupancy.
Airport tenants create hundreds of jobs
in fields as diverse as food preparation and
home building.
For the coming year, the budget exceeds
$3.1 million, evenly divided between
industrial park rentals and aviation opera-
tions.
Because of its reputation for sound man-
agement, Bartow Municipal Airport has
become a magnet for both federal and state
aviation funding.
Plans are moving forward for a new ter-
minal building and restaurant.
Closure of a local military installation
can be traumatic for a community, but it
can also open new opportunities.
Bartow Municipal Airport is a classic
example.

OUR READERS SAY

'Colors of Life': A Biblical Perspective


BARTOW Changing of the
seasons. Opening of schools.
Bring on the colors!
How important colors are to
our lives. How would we even
communicate without them? We
get angry, we see red; happy,
we're in pink; feeling sad, we're
blue; mean-spirited, black-heart-
ed; cowardly, yellow; money is
green.
We fight for the red, white and
blue of our flag. But the colors of
life, the, colors God sees, ever
wonder what they are?
Many people would say sin is
black, but that's not what God
says. Isaiah 1:18: "Come now, and
let us reason together, saith the
Lord. Though your sins be scar-
let, they shall be white as snow;
though they be red like crimson,
they shall be as wool." In the eyes
of God, our sins are red.
The word red .is the Hebrew
word "Adam". When used as a
verb, it means "to show blood in


the face;" that is, to flush or turn
rosy. The word also means "to be
dyed or made red." Actually, this
,is the very word God used to
name the first man. He was made
out of red clay of the earth the
dust off of it so, God called
him "Adam." Really, God was
calling him "Red."
But why does God call our sins
red? Fire is a red color and
devours and destroys like sin,
Red is the color of passion and
desire, which like sin is consum-
ing. Red is the color of Adam, the
father of sin. Red is also color of
violence crimes of passion -
the ultimate sin of killing some-
one. Red is also the color of sacri-
ficial blood, the only covering for
sin.
So what is God's color for the
absence of sin? It is Isaiah who
tells us: "Though your sins be as
scarlet, they shall be white as
snow." The word "white" is the
Hebrew word "Lavan," and


though its primary meaning is
the color white, it also means "to
make bricks." If you visit
Jerusalem, all the buildings are
made of white brick. White is the
color of the local stone and clay
used for building.
Though the stone is white, it is
more of a dull, or impure white.
Perhaps that's why Isaiah didn't
say "white as,bricks," but rather
white as snow.
When the sun comes out right
after a snow storm, you need
sunglasses to look at it. It is so
incredibly white it's blinding.
When a person receives Christ as
their Savior, God changes them
from being "red" like Adam, to
being "white" like Christ. A
transformation of color takes
place when God cleanses people
from sin. That's what Isaiah
wanted us to "reason together"
about, how we can go from being
red to white.
ESTELLE HUMPHRIES


You have to be a real trivia buff
to notice stuff like this, but the
folio line (I think that's what it's
called) on the front page of
today's Democrat reads:
"Democrat Vol. 75, No. 1."
(If you are reading this in
Tuesday's Fort Meade Leader,
that's not what it says, but humor
me, okay?)
That means that today's issue
of The Democrat is the first issue
of our 75th year. (No, it does not
mean we are 75 years old. Being
math challenged, I have a hard
time figuring this stuff out. When
you're born, it's Day 1. It's not for
another year that you are one
year old.)
We'll run a brief weekly fea-
ture all year, anchored on Page 3
of our Monday issue (and in
Tuesday's Fort Meade Leader),


with some nugget about the his-
tory of our newspaper. Today's
nugget (please do not call it a
"blurb;" that's like calling a stu-
dio portrait a "snapshot") gives
the date on which the paper was
established, and the names of the
founders (my grandfather and
great-grandfather).
I don't think I'll have any
problem coming up with 52
blurbs ... uh ... nuggets; I'm
tempted to go for 104, one in
every issue, but sounder judg-
ment advises against it.
Where did The Democrat get
its name?
When did we make our first
endorsement of a Republican
candidate for President?
How many publishers have
we had, and how many of them
corralled their wives into work-


ing at the paper?
When and why did we estab-
lish our Fort Meade edition, and
how did it evolve into The Fort
Meade Leader?
When and why did we estab-
lish Polk County Times?
When and why did we buy
The Lake Wales News?
How many locations have we
been in and why did we make
each move?
How many tons of paper and
how many gallons of ink do we
use in a year? (A wise politician
- no, that's not an oxymoron -
is credited with the advice:
"Never argue with a man who
buys his paper by the carload and
his ink by the barrel.")
How many presses have we
printed on, and why did we
make each change?

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Aunt Freida's Cookbook


While going through my col-
lection of cookbooks and mar-
veling at the changes in cooking
over the years, I ran across the
piece de resistance of them all,
Aunt Freida's cookbook.
Aunt Freida was a sturdily-
built lady, the next to youngest of
six children. She had red hair and
it was naturally curly. I envied
her hair and as a close second to
that, Ij envied her cooking.
As a vocation, she ran a beauty
shop and gave me my first per-
manent. She could cook anything
you could mention, and her cakes
and pies were memorable. She


left me her cookbook when she
went on to that Big Kitchen in the
Sky.
The cookbook is about six
inches thick and is encased in a
ring binder with plastic sleeves
just jammed full of recipes. It is
amazing how times have
changed.
Here's an example:
Fresh Spinach Salad: Wash one
bag of spinach torn into pieces. 1
small can drained bean sprouts, 1
small can water chestnuts sliced
thin, 2 hard boiled' eggs, sliced, 8
slices of bacon sliced crisp and
crumbled, 1 small onion sliced


and then separated into rings.
Dressing: 1 cup salad oil, salt,
blend well 1/2 cup wine vinegar,
1/2 cup sugar. 1/3 cup catsup,
chill and then pour over salad.
Mississippi Mud Cake: 1 cup
of butter or margarine, 4 eggs, 1
cup flaked coconut, 2 cups sugar,
1-1/2. cups sifted all purpose
flour, 1/3 cup cocoa, 1 tsp. vanil-
la, 1 cup coarsely chopped wal-
nuts, 1 13-oz. jar marshmallow
cream, 1 can ready-to-spread
chocolate frosting.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees,
grease 9x13x2-inch pan. In large
bowl, beat butter or margarine

Nursery Industry Feels Wrath Of Katrina


Nursery operations in Miami-
Dade County have suffered sig-
nificant damage as a result of
Hurricane Katrina, Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son said.
Florida's nursery industry,
which includes decorative
plants, shrubs, bushes, trees and
sod, is the single largest segment
of the state's agricultural indus-
try, and Miami-Dade County is
the top nursery county in Flor-
ida.
Preliminary reports from
USDA's Farm Service Agency
and reports from industry repre-
sentatives themselves indicate
that nurseries in the county sus-
tained significant structural


damage to greenhouses and
other buildings from Katrina's
high winds, and many plants
were flooded by the heavy rains
associated with the storm.
Moreover, plants that escaped
heavy rainfall may not survive
unless power is restored quickly
as most such operations rely on
electricity to irrigate their
plants.
"The strong winds, heavy rain
and loss of power have combined
to wallop our nursery industry in
South Florida," Bronson said.
"We will do all that we can to
assist our growers."
The commissioner plans to
visit the Homestead area, where
most of Miami-Dade nursery op-
erations are located, next week


to view damage and meet with
industry officials.
Bronson said it will take sev-
eral days before his department
and USDA can determine a dam-
age estimate for the industry.
In addition to nursery dam-
age, Bronson said tropical fish
farms in the area were flooded,
acreage prepared for vegetable
plantings next month experi-
enced flooding and up to half of
the avocados on trees were
blown off.
The state's Florida City Farm-
ers' Market in Homestead and
Pompano Farmers' Market in
Broward County are both under
water and without power. State
officials are currently assessing
the damage to the facilities.

Angle For A Fishing'

Trip In Fort Meade


QwikWay Food Store, located
at 724 East Broadway in Fort
Meade, formerly the Orange
Blossom, will be a bait and
tackle shop in the very near fu-
ture, according to owners' Mo-
hammed and Begum Hossain.
The bait and tackle shop en-
trance will be inside of the Qwik-
Way Food Store located on the
right side of the store.
According to Hossain, the
shop will offer all types of live
baits including minnows,
crickets, shiners, wild shiners
and worms.
Fishing lures, bait buckets,
trolling buckets, bubble boxes,
poles, reels, and any item today's
angler might need to catch the
big one, can be purchased with-
out having to leave Fort Meade..
"When we are able to get the
bait and tackle fully stocked and
operating, we intend to sponsor
fishing tournaments," said Hos-
sain.

Of the $23.5 billion tax roll,
$14.7 billion is in unincorporated
areas, where the 1.25 Municipal
Services Taxing Unit levies
would be collected for parks and
libraries.
The parks MSTU, three-quar-

in slightly more than $11 million,
Ms. Faux said.
The half-mill tax for libraries
would bring in $7.35 million.
The parks and libraries tax
would not be collected on proper-

city residents already are paying

REAL FLOWERS may smell sweeter, but couldn't be prettier
than a creation from Silken Celebrations by Christy in Fort Meade.
The new business will offer flowers for rent. (Staff photo)

Silken Celebrations By Christy
Offers Flowers By Rental


Real flowers may fade in a
few days, but silk flowers can
last forever, or the few hours
they are needed.
Silken Celebrations By
Christy in Fort Meade offers
flower creations for rent for
every occasion.
Weddings can take months to
plan and prepare for but are
over in a matter of hours.
Flowers in particular, though
they are beautiful and important
touches, creating an atmosphere
of happiness complementary to
the affair, can cost buyers a
pretty penny.
Nevertheless, it is important
to remember that weddings are
special and every bride and
groom deserve quality memories
to last a lifetime; but who said
they have to cost a fortune?
What if there was a way to
rent flower arrangements for
every occasion? Well, now there
is.
Silken Celebrations special-
izes in silk flower rentals for
weddings, parties, business func-
tions and other events. Certain
items such as bridal party bou-
quets may be purchased.

Atty. General Warns Against

Price Gouging From Rains


Attorney General Charlie
Crist has issued a warning to
unscrupulous businesses opera-
* tors against taking advantage of
Florida residents and visitors as
they cope with emergency condi-
tions brought on by heavy rains
and severe flooding.
Crist mobilized his office and
staffed a toll-free hotline at 1-
866-9-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-
7226) to handle consumer calls
over possible price gouging.
The Attorney General's action
follows Governor Jeb Bush's offi-
cial declaration of an emergency
for Polk County.
"This year's storm season has
brought unusually high amounts
of rainfall to citizens of Polk
County, subjecting them to se-
vere flooding and electrical
power outages," Crist said. "The
last thing they need to worry,
about now is someone trying to
take advantage of them. We will
thoroughly investigate every
credible allegation of price goug-
ing brought to our attention."
Those who suspect price goug-
ing should call the Attorney Gen-
eral's hotline, and investigators
will look into the complaint.
Florida law prohibits extreme
increases in the price of such
commodities as food, water, ho-
tels, ice, gasoline, lumber, and
equipment needed as a direct re-
sult of an officially declared
emergency.
During last year's record-set-
ting hurricane season, the Attor-
ney General's Office received
8,911 complaints through its
price gouging hotline. The office
initiated 58 formal' investiga-
tions and filed 13 price gouging
lawsuits against hotels,. genera-
tor businesses, tree removal
companies, and other busi-
nesses.
To date the Attorney Gener-
al's Office has recovered more
than $700,000 in restitution for
Florida consumers from settle-
ments and other resolutions.
Other investigations and settle-
ment negotiations are ongoing,
including two subpoenas served
as a result of Hurricane Dennis
price gouging allegations.
Under Florida law, a commod-


ity's price is unconscionable if
the increase in the price repre-
sents a "gross disparity" from
the average price of that com-
modity during the 30 days imme-
diately prior to the declared
emergency. This applies unless
the increase is attributable to
additional costs incurred by the
seller or .to national or interna-
tional market trends.
Violators of the price gouging
statute are subject to civil penal-
ties of $1,000 per violation, up to
a total of $25,000 for multiple
violations committed in a single
24-hour period.
A new law enacted this year
criminalizes price gouging and
provides that during a declared
state of emergency, any person
who offers goods and services for
sale to the public without pos-
sessing an occupational license
commits a second-degree misde-
meanor.
Crist also cautioned consum-
ers to be wary of business scams
that might arise in the wake of
the flooding, including building
repair and tree removal compa-
nies that come into storm-af-
fected areas. The Attorney Gen-
eral said residents should, deal
whenever possible with estab-
lished local companies when
they contract for repairs or ar-
range financing to pay for any
repairs that might not be cov-
ered by insurance.
Consumers should be wary of
any unsolicited "contractor" who
knocks on the door with an offer
to fix a damaged roof or win-
dows.
Before signing any contracts,
Floridians should check the con-
tractor's license, payment terms,
and other provisions, Crist said,


**
Business conventions are impor-
tant because they demonstrate
how many people a company
can operate without.

FWC Finds No Signs of

CWD in Floridian Deer


Florida's deer herd reveals no
signs of chronic wasting disease
(CWD) after three years of test-
ing for the fatal disease, accord-
ing to the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC).
The FWC tested 558 free-
ranging deer during the past
year and more than 1,800 deer
over the past three years, and
none tested positive.for CWD.
CWD is a pr.'gressi'.., neuro-
logical, debilitating disease that
has been detected in and affects
captive and wild herds of mule
deer, white-tailed deer and
Rocky Mountain elk in several
Midwestern and western states.
It attacks the brain of infected
animals, causing them to become
emaciated, display abnormal be-
havior and lose control of bodily
functions.
No southeastern states, in-
cluding Florida, have been hit by
the lethal deer disease thus far.
"We still need to be vigilant in
our monitoring efforts. We hope
CWD never makes it to Florida,
but early detection will be key to
limiting the spread of the dis-
ease, if such an outbreak should
occur," said deer program coordi-
nator Robert Vanderhoof of
FWC's division of hunting and
game management.
This hunting season, the FWC
is again turning to sportsmen to
help monitor the state's deer
herd for CWD.
"We are asking hunters to re-
port any sightings of sickly or
scrawny-looking deer," Vander-
hoof said.
"If you see such a deer, call
toll-free to 866-CWD-WATCH
(293-9282). Wildlife biologists
will respond and if necessary col-
lect deer tissue for testing," he
said.
"It's important to contact us
as soon as possible, because
CWD testing must take place
within 48 hours of a deer's death
to produce reliable results."
Clinical signs include exces-
sive salivation and grinding of
teeth, increased drinking and
urination, dramatic loss of
weight and body condition, poor
hair coat, staggering and finally,
death, Behavioral changes, in-
cluding decreased interaction
with other animals, listlessness,
lowering of the head, blank fa-
cial expression and repetitive
walking in set patterns may also
occur.


Wildlife experts have found
no evidence that CWD can be
transmitted to livestock or hu-
mans, but it is recommended to
avoid direct contact with any
deer exhibiting signs of CWD or
one that has died from unknown
causes.
More information on CWD is
available at MyFWC.com/CWD.
The Web site also provides links
-to human. ad wildlife .health.
agencies for more in-depth infor-
mation about the deadly disease.

By JEFF THORNBURG
A crowd of 1,200 high school
football fans held their collective
breath as a 42-yard field goal at-
tempt by George Jenkins, with
20 seconds left in the game to
win it for the Eagles, fell short.
The Bartow Yellow Jackets
held on for a 19-17 season open-
ing victory Friday night at Bar-
tow Memorial Stadium.
Jacket senior running back
Ryan Colson rushed 16 times
gaining 152 yards and scoring
two touchdowns. Junior quarter-
back Devarious Cook passed 14
times, completing eight for 122
yards, including a 23-yard touch-
down pass to Jasper Stephens,
who made a terrific catch and
dove into the end zone with 17
seconds remaining in the first
half.
The Eagles started the scor-
ing late in the second quarter,
when senior running back Shel-
don Dennis pushed into the end
zone from one yard out. The Bar-
tow defense stopped the Eagles,
forcing a field goal, which they
missed, but the Yellow Jackets
were flagged for roughing the
holder, giving George Jenkins
first and goal. Dennis scored on
the next play.
Just some 90 seconds later,
Bartow answered with the Cook
to Stephens touchdown pass, but
the extra point attempt was
blocked, leaving the Eagles with
a one-point halftime lead.
The Eagles extended their
lead with a 32-yard field goal by
Austin Parrish, midway through
the third quarter.
Bartow took the lead on their
next possession. Following a 48-
yard kickoff return by Jamal
Darling, the Yellow Jackets
started their drive at the Eagle
38-yard line. Five running plays
later Bartow's Colson scored
from three yards out, giving the
Yellow Jackets a three-point
lead.
The Jackets' lead was short-
lived. Two plays later, Dennis
sprinted 70 yards up the middle
and outrunning the Yellow
Jacket defense, for his second
touchdown of the game. For the
game, Dennis rushed 25 times,
gaining 117 yards.
On the Eagle kickoff, Bartow
returned the ball 93 yards for an
apparent touchdown, but the
play was flagged. for a Yellow
Jacket holding penalty.

Following punts by both
teams, Bartow started the fourth
quarter on their own 17-yard
line. Nine plays later, behind the
running of Colson, Bartow took
the lead again with Colson's sec-
ond touchdown, a 21-yard run,
breaking tackles and showing
good moves through the Eagle
defense.
George Jenkins would have
one last attempt to win. After
blocking a Bartow punt, the Ea-
gles started at the Yellow Jacket
49-yard-line with 94 seconds left
in the game. The Eagles man-
aged two first downs, but they
were pushed back five yards af-
ter a penalty. Three plays later
Eagles kicker Parrish's winning
field goal attempt fell short, pre-
serving the win for Bartow.
