Public Hearings Tuesday


On City Budget, Fees


HELICOPTER POWER was required to lift the
heavy air conditioning units to the roof of the new
Lowe's Home Improvement Center at 425 East Van
Fleet Drive on Friday. The center is expected to be
completed in November and will bring about 120 new
jobs to the area. I Photo above. by Brett Luwe and

Public hearings on the 2005-06
city budget, the property tax rate,
the stormwater tax fee, two new
impact fees, and a loan to pay for
two city facilities will be held by
the Bartow city commission on
Tuesday.
Commissioners also will con-
sider giving themselves a pay
raise.
The stormwater tax already
has been set at $45 a year for sin-
gle family homes, but the rate
must be reaffirmed after a public
hearing, City Mgr. Joseph J.
DeLegge said.
The new budget maintains the
property tax rate at 4.5 mills,
which is $4.50 per 1,000 of tax-
able property value, but under
Florida law, that is considered an
increase because the tax levy will
produce about $61,000 more rev-
enue in the coming year than it
did in the current fiscal year.
The commission plans to
impose two more impact fees, one
to pay for roads and another to
pay for public facilities. Impact
fees are imposed on new construc-
tion to pay for the additional facil-
ities that are needed to support
growth.
The proposed impact fee for
roads is $1,050 for a single family
home., Fees for commercial prop-
erty would vary with the type and
size of the facility. The highest
fees would be paid by fast food


restaurants with drive-through
service, which would be assessed
$7,003 per 1,000 square feet.
The public facilities impact fee
would be based on the size and
type of the building. For homes,
the fee would range from $512 for
homes of less than 800 square
feet to $910 for homes of more
than 3,600 square feet.
The loan ordinance would
authorize the city to borrow up to
$3 million to build the new
Carver Recreation Center gymna-
sium and to purchase and reno-
vate a former manufacturing
complex next to Bartow
Municipal Airport for use by the
utilities department.
The commission's policy manu-
al requires commissioners to con-
sider their own salaries once a
year at the time the budget is
adopted.
The commission will hold a
work session at 5 p.m. a half-
hour earlier than usual and
will reconvene for its regular
business meeting at 6:30.
The meeting is being held on
Tuesday, one day later than nor-
mal, because of today's Labor Day
holiday.
Other items on the agenda:
Presentation to the commis-
sion of the city audit by Tierso
Nunez, the city's external auditor.
A decision on a zoning board
recommendation that the city sell


a parcel of land on South
Broadway to Curtis Schley, the
adjacent property owner.
Appointment of a voting del-
egate to the National League of
Cities convention.

Sept. 17 to 23 as Constitution
Week, and September as Library
Sign-Up Month.

posed site for a new elementary
school between E.F. Griffin Road
and U.S. Highway 98 just south
of Catfish Country restaurant.

overtime to exempt city employ-
ees during a declared "state of
emergency."

'Ax the Tax Polk'

To File Suit Against

County Tax Increase


A Polk County taxpayer said
today he will file suit on Tuesday
to stop the county commission
from imposing a tax increase of
29 percent on property in unin-
corporated areas of the county.
John Long, chairman of Ax the
Tax Polk, said he will file suit in
circuit court to prevent the impo-
sition of the tax increase slated to
be approved at a county commis-
sion public hearing on Thursday,
Sept. 8. That hearing will be held
at 6 p.m. at the county adminis-
tration building.
Ax the Tax attorney Frederic
B. O'Neal of Orlando will file suit
at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Long said.
The commission has proposed
to impose a one-mill ad valorem
property tax increase on all prop-

erty in the county to pay for road
projects,., and another mill-and-a-
quarter in unincorporated areas
only to support libraries, parks,
and other recreation facilities.
Ax the Tax, a statewide politi-
cal committee, is advising and
assisting the newly organized
Polk County chapter in prepara-
tion for the county commission
vote, Long said.

the Tax, go to www.axthetax.org.


A 40-acre parcel of land
between U.S. Highway 98 and
E.F. Griffin Road north of Bartow
has been recommended by the
Polk County school board staff as
the site for a new elementary
school.
The school would serve the
rapidly-developing areas on the
north side of Bartow and the
southeast side of Lakeland.
The site is less than a quarter-
mile south of County Road 540-A,
a little bit south of Catfish
Country restaurant, at the north
end of the planned Silver
Companies development.
The school board staff has pro-
posed that the board buy the land
from Silver, at a price not yet
negotiated. The board would then
sell part of the parcel to the coun-
ty commission to extend Crews
Lake Road from E.F. Griffin Road
to Highway 98, and part to the
Florida Dept. of Transportation
for stormwater retention, accord-
ing to Sally Myers, property man-
agement analyst for the board.
That would leave approxi-
mately 30 acres for the school,
which is at the upper end of the
board's policy of sites of 25 to 30
acres for elementary schools, she
said.
The school board's site selec-
tion committee selected this loca-
tion from a list of three parcels in
that vicinity. A site on Stokes
Road a quarter-mile south of CR
540-A was the committee's second
choice, and a site on Kitty Futch
Lane, about a mile-and-a-quarter
south of CR 540-A, was ranked


Zoning Board Opposes

Garbage Landfill in City


Bartow's planning and zoning


board doesn't want the Cedar
Trail Landfill on E.F. Griffin
Road to be allowed to accept
"commercial garbage" for dispos-
al.
Rain At the urging of Board
.50 Member Bo Raulerson, the board
-_ voted unanimously to encourage
.33 the city commission to actively
.00 oppose allowing the site to
become a garbage landfill.
At present, Cedar Trail
accepts construction and demoli-
tion debris and yard trash, but no
raw garbage.


Under terms of an agreement
to settle a federal lawsuit a num-
ber of years ago, the landfill own-
ers agreed not to accept "house-
hold garbage" at the site. The
present owners have told city
commissioners they will apply to
the state for a permit to accept
"commercial garbage."
While the decision will rest
with the Florida Dept. of
Environmental Protection, any-
one, including city government,
can go on record with the agency
either supporting or opposing the
change.


third.
In a letter to the Bartow city
commission. Bob Williams, assis-
tant school superintendent for
facilities and operations, said the
top-ranked site "has close access
to public utilities, has good acces-
sibility,. and has minimal flood
zones on the property."
The next step in the site selec-
tion process is for the county com-
mission and the cities which
would be impacted by the school
to review and rank the sites.
Final approval rests with the
school board.


Bartow's Community Rede-
velopment Agency wants to
expand its boundaries to take in
26 blocks of residential and com-
mercial property in East Bartow.
The additional property is
generally between Third and
Seventh Avenues, bounded by
Bay Street on the south and Gay
Street on the north.
The present CRA boundary
wraps around the west, north
and east sides of the property
like an upside down U. In 1999,
the CRA boundaries were
extended east to U.S. Highway
17, then south to Georgia Street,
taking in much of the property
east of the highway but bypass-


ing the heart of East Bartow.
The CRA is particularly inter-
ested in encouraging housing
redevelopment in the area,
Executive Dir. James Q. Duane
said.
A few of the homes and two
churches in the area can be
traced back to the 1880s, Duane
said.
Mount Gilboa Missionary
Baptist Church on Martin
Luther King Boulevard, was
founded on Feb.-17, 1893, and is
one of the oldest black churches
in Bartow, he said. The present
church building was built in
1928.
Within the area, about 53 per-


cent of the structures are consid-
ered "standard," while nearly 33
percent are "deteriorated" and
nearly 14 percent are "dilapidat-
ed," Duane said.
Community Redevelopment
Agencies are created under
Florida law to eliminate "slum
and blight" conditions.
As property values are
increased, 90 percent of the
increased property taxes go to
the CRA for further improve-
ments within the boundaries: of
the district.
Approval to expand the CRA
boundaries rests with the city
commission.

The entire room, was deco-

roses and floating candles with
floating roses centered the ta-
bles. The birthday cake was done
in white and purple, and Mrs.
Wiggins' children presented her
with 70 purple roses.
The highlight of the evening
was a surprise visit from Mrs.
Wiggins' cousin, whom she
hadn't seen in several years. The
two had grown up together and
were like brother and sister, but
had lost contact 37 years ago.
Mrs. Wiggins' family located
her long lost cousin on the inter-
net, and many golfers even hung
around the party to witness the
emotional reunion.
"There were grown men cry-
ing," Mrs. Wiggins' daughter,
Janet, said. "It was something
else. There were a lot of tears of
joy and happiness. Some people
commented that it should have

her grandchildren from her
youngest to her oldest grand-
child, who is 36 years old.

National Guard On Scene Radio Station Holding

After Hurricane Katrina Hurricane Relief Drive


Units from across the nation
have descended on Louisiana
and Mississippi in response to
Hurricane Katrina as part of the
unprecedented call-up of Na-
tional Guard forces for a natural
disaster.
"It's state helping state and
neighbor helping neighbor," said
Florida Army National Guard
Brig. Gen. Michael Fleming.
Fleming, who is in Louisiana
because of his extensive experi-
ence from the four hurricanes
which struck Florida in 2004,
said the National Guard's pri-
mary focus is to save lives, pro-
vide security, and evacuate resi-
dents.
More than 12,000 Guardsmen
are operating in the devastated
areas combing the flooded
streets of New Orleans for vic-
tims, pulling survivors from the
rooftops of buildings by helicop-
ter, and handing out supplies.'
An additional 4,000 National
Guardsmen are expected to ar-
rive in Louisiana by Tuesday.
In Mississippi, Alabama Army
National Guardsmen provide se-
curity at gas stations, and Flor-
ida Army National Guardsmen
patrol the streets of Bay St.
Louis as part of the massive hu-
manitarian effort requested by


state governors.
In Louisiana alone, more than
49,000 people are living in shel-
ters around the state and an-
other 47,000 have been moved
out of state to temporary hous-
ing. Preliminary numbers indi-
cate Task Force Pelican has dis-
tributed more than 620,000 bot-
tles of water and 320,000 meals
since the storm hit.
Jeffrey Hetherington, a re-
tired Florida Army National
Guard colonel assisting the
state's logistics officer with set-
ting up staging areas for sup-
plies flowing into Louisiana, said
it is critical to get ice, water, and
MREs to storm victims.
"It is a matter of life or
death," Hetherington said. "It is
what we do and how well we do
it that will determine if people
live or die."
With late summer tempera-
tures soaring into the upper 90s,
'the National Guard is working
hard to alleviate the suffering of
storm victims.
Hetherington said currently
there are 20 points of distribu-
tion set up manned by National
Guardsmen, Texas Forestry
Service, and parish volunteers.
More distributions sites will be
set up, he said.


Radio Station WHNR Power
1360 has teamed up with M. Wil-
son Banks Trucking and The
Frankie Grover Foundation to
start a "round the clock" effort to
fill as many tractor-trailers as
possible with nonperishable
items.
Any nonperishable items will
be taken for distribution to the
victims devastated in Hurricane
Katrina's path.
The station will begin broad-
casting live 24 hours a day from


their front lawn with a trailer
(from M. Wilson Banks Truck-
ing), in an effort to fill the trail-
ers and get them on site to the
areas that need it most, in the
shortest time possible.
Some of the items needed are
water, canned goods, nonperish-
able food items, hygiene prod-
ucts, baby items, clothing (all
sizes), batteries, and radios.
For more information, call
299-1141 or 412-8949.


Rotarians Seek Funds

For Hurricane Relief


The Highlands County Rotary
Club has challenged other Ro-
tary Clubs throughout central
Florida to contribute an amount
equal to $50 per member for re-
lief work in the wake of Hurri-
cane Katrina.
Members of the Bartow Ro-
tary Club may make gifts
through the Bartow Rotary
Foundation, President Chuck
Bentley told the club.
Bentley also announced that
the gazebo that Bartow Rotari-


ans are purchasing to go at the
edge of Wilsons Lake at Sum-
merlin Park should be delivered
soon and installed by November.
The $46,904 gazebo is being
given in commemoration of the
100th anniversary of Rotary In-
ternational.
The club will be distributing
student dictionaries to two local
schools, he said.
Dan Brawley was inducted as
a member of the club.

The spirit of volunteerism is
alive and well in Vancouver.
Our neighbors to the north
boast a 40-member organization
of junkies called the Vancouver
Area Network of Drug Users -
VANDU for short who make
the rounds of a "slum and open
drug market" in Downtown
Eastside, shooting up heroin
addicts who are too sick or inex-
perienced to do the job them-
selves.
According to an article in
Canadian Press, 12 of these noble
souls "are trained and walking
the alleys now." The article does-
n't explain what the other 28 do,


but apparently they are not yet
trained to VANDU's high stan-
dards for mainlining.
Got to maintain the integrity of
the profession, eh?
Diane Tobin, the first female
president of the group (another
great advance for womankind)
said they hope to acquire a room
where junkies can come to them,
sort of a storefront clinic in
reverse.
Madam President, incidental-
ly, "is back on heroin to deal with
withdrawal from methadone."

Post-Hurricane T thievery


Is Not All in th- Streets


Not all the thievery in the wake of
Hurricane Katrina is taking place on the
streets of. New Orleans.
The thugs there are easy to spot; they're
wearing jc-a n s and wife-beater undershirts,
and are steAling as much as they can carry.
The other thieves are wearing turbans
and robes, ten--gallon hats and silk suits,
and they're stealing more money 'thi1 i
most of their victims could hope to earn in
10 lifetimes, or 100.
The rising price of crude oil and gasoline
is unconscionable; it is thievery, just as
much as the looting on the streets of New
Orleans. And, as in the Crescent City, vic-
tims are powerless to do anything about it.
We understand-the Law of Supply and
Demand, and that the temporary; reduce
tion in oil production as a result of damage
to offshore drilling rigs in the Gulf of
Mexico has ie-sulted in a modest reduiction
in the worldvw id" upply of crudeoil.
But that shortage is hardly,. enough to
justify increases of 50 .cents or ,a dollar a
gallon, even more in some places, in the
price of gasoline within three days after
the storm hit the Gulf Coast.
It does trot cost one dime more to pump
oil out of the' ground today than it did
before the hurricane struck. It does not
cost one dime more to convert it into gaso-
line and other- end products than it did
before the hurricane struck.
Somebody is getting wealthy actual-
ly, wealthier overnight, adding nation-
wide economic pain to the, tragic loss ,of
life and property on the Gulf Coast.
We do not know'enough about the
petroleum industry to know, where the
thievery is talOng place at the wellhead,


at the refinery, or somewhere else along
the line. We do know enough about the
industry to doubt that the mom-and-pop
operator of the service station on the cor-
ner is getting much benefit from the sky-
rocketing cost of gas at the pump.
In foreign lands, oil rich countries like
Saudi Arabia and Kuwait that would be
suburbs of Iraq today had America not
fought and won Gulf War I are benefiting
from the artificial spike in oil prices.
In the United States, the inflated prices
add to the raid on the public treasury that
was written into the energy bill just a few
weeks ago.
Ti I rie-- paperr is more committed than
no'.; t, free market principles. Price fluc-
.' idon -- b-oth up and down are a fact
of life .in the commodities market (includ-
ing, incidentally, the price of the newsprint
you are holding in your hands).
At some point, fluctuations rise to the
level of thievery, and in the wake of
Hurricane Katrina, that level has been
reached in the petroleum industry.

OUR READERS SAY

A Report on Help for Victims


WASHINGTON, D.C. As the nation
continues to witness- the destruction and
aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, many
Floridians have contacted me to ask how they
can best help in the relief efforts.
I have included helpful information on my
website to assist you in helping our friends
across the Gulf Coast region as they continue
recovery efforts from one of the worst natur-
al disasters to ever hit our nation. I have pro-
vided the link below which contains informa-
tion on finding the status of missing relatives,
organizations to contact for donations and
volunteer information, as well as the latest
news on the affected region.
I also want to assure you that I am working
with my colleagues here in Florida and across
the nation to respond effectively to this crisis.
Just as the Federal Emergency
Management Agency responded to Florida
during our hurricane crisis last year, FEMA
has deployed unprecedented resources to
help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. This
includes more than 50 disaster medical assis-
tance teams and 25 urban search and rescue
teams to help save as many lives as possible.
The United States Coast Guard continues
conducting search and rescue missions in
some of the most devastated areas in New
Orleans, which continues to be flooded.
The Dept. of Health and Human Services
and the Centers for Disease Control are work-
ing to place victims with medical needs into
operating hospitals, and are providing
important resources to medical personnel to
help ensure the health of Hurricane Katrina's
victims.
The Dept. of Defense has deployed per-
sonnel and resources to provide for search
and rescue missions, disaster response equip-
ment, and a hospital ship to provide medical


care. In addition, the National Guard has
nearly 11,000 Guardsmen to assist with the
growing need for security and other disaster
response efforts.
We are also continuing efforts to ensure
that adequate food, water, shelter and med-
ical supplies are provided to survivors. The
Dept. of Transportation has provided more
than 400 trucks to bring millions of meals,
gallons of water, and ice, along with tarps,
generators, disaster supplies, blankets, cots,
and other important supplies to the dislocat-
ed citizens along the Gulf Coast.
We also are working to remove debris,
where possible, and restore critical infrastruc-
ture that is necessary to begin the important
process of recovery, including establishing


power lines, communication centers, and
roads.
This is a devastating time for the Gulf
Coast region, particularly Louisiana, and I
stand committed to help serve the needs of
the region and state. I hope you will join me
in the important recovery efforts during the
coming weeks, months, and years as the peo-
ple of the Gulf Coast rebuild. Please visit the
link below to learn more in how you can help
in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Labor Day Pains


All of a sudden, our country is
suffering the consequences of a
cataclysmic freak of nature.
We have had storms starting in
the Caribbean that worked their
way up the Gulf side of Florida
until they reached the mainland
and diminished into wherever
they came from.
Now it seems that Bruno, the
evil spirit of hurricanes, has'
stirred up a real humdinger of a
storm. He looked at the beaches
of Louisiana, Alabama and
Mississippi and said to himself,
"Yummy! That really looks deli-
cious! I will give those people


something to remember about
this Labor Day. They think they
have seen hurricanes? They ain't
seen nothing yet."
I worked for the Florida.
Highway Patrol when it was in
Bartow. I rather .enjoyed hurri-
canes.
Mother used to cook dinner in
the fireplace and although it was-
n't a gourmet meal, it was sort of
fun.
The Highway Patrol office was
in the basement of the old State
Road Dept. building. Among my
duties there, aside from relief
radio operator and secretary,


were to answer the phone and it blew over. When the water


stand by with the mop when we
had a hurricane. It seems to me
that we had sort of interesting,
friendly hurricanes, not the kind
they are experiencing in New
Orleans.
The Highway Patrol office was
one of the few places that had
electricity when the lights went
out all over town. The police
radio kept going, too, and it was
always interesting to talk to
tourists who wanted to know
how to get to Miami. I would tell
them to stop at a restaurant and
have lunch or dinner and wait till


went down in the ditches would
be the time to start.
You couldn't tell tourists any-
thing. Most of them would head
south and get stuck in a ditch.
Then they would call back and
ask how to get out of the ditch. It
was sort of fun for me, at least.
Now that Florida has so many
good highways that go to Miami,
I guess you can get to Miami fair-
ly easily, even in a storm. It was
more fun back then.


-- is a low grade narcotic that is
used to help heroin addicts
through withdrawal. Neither CSI
Miami nor Steve King ever heard
of using heroin to cope with with-
drawal from methadone.
VANDU's tender mercies are
directed at those whose health
has been so damaged by drug
abuse that they can't poke their
own needles in themselves. The
article also reports that "women
and young injectors are also more
likely than other injection drug
users to need help injecting."
I will not be drawn into a sex-
ist or agist comment.

great.
An organization called Health
Canada wants Canadian law
changed so that nurses can shoot
up addicts who are too wasted to
inject their own heroin.
At present, a health care work-
er "can only supervise and offer
medical assistance if a user hurts
themselves and gets sick or over-
doses," Canadian Press reports.
A nurse who gives an addict
an illegal injection could be
charged with possession of hero-
in.

County Manager Mike Herr

Defends Proposed Tax Increases


Obituaries


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer

Polk county's commission has
recently come under fire for its
proposed tax increases. Wonder
where that money is going?
County Mgr. Mike Herr ex-
plained the county's budget dur-
ing his "state of the county" ad-
dress a Bartow Chamber of Com-
merce OJ breakfast.
He told the audience that gov-
ernment jobs should have pay
that is competitive with jobs in
the private sector, both to be fair
and to ensure that quality em-
ployees can be hired.
Herr said that the existence of
two unions among county work-
ers is because too often the
county "has pulled the rug out
from under them."

With that in mind, he ex-
plained that the county had de-
veloped a $1.3 billion budget.
In the unincorporated areas of
the county, there is a proposed
two-and-a-quarter-mill property
tax increase. If the budget
passes, one mill will be for roads,
three-quarters-of-a-mill for
parks, and a half-mill for librar-
ies. Herr said that there was a
huge inequity between spending
in incorporated versus unincor-
porated areas, despite the fact
that the difference in popula-
tions (524,000 and 349,000, re-
spectively) is not nearly as vast.
Of the tax increase, one mill
would be imposed on all property
in the county, and commission-
ers have said that money would
be used for road improvements.
The mill-and-a-quarter for
parks and libraries would be im-
posed only in unincorporated ar-
eas, because city residents al-
ready are paying for municipal


parks and libraries with city
taxes.
Emergency medical services,
fire departments, and law en-
forcement are top priorities in
the new spending plan. In 2000,
the ratio of law enforcement
deputies to population was 1.7
officers per 1,000 people, which
is on par with national averages
and agreements about what is
acceptably safe. Since then, the
number has dropped to 1.6 offi-
cers per 1,000 people, so the
spending plan calls for hiring 16
new officers.
Herr also expressed concern
that EMS response time is slip-
ping to an unacceptable level.
The new spending plan is ori-
ented to decrease the response
time from the current 10 to 12
minutes to its previous standard
of 7.5 minutes.
EMS and law enforcement
were the two top-rated property
tax-funded services in a recent
survey of Polk County citizens
on which services they believed
were most critical.
In addition to the standards of
living and safety of residents,
Herr expressed the need to close
the "infrastructure gap" in Polk
County in order to encourage
economic development.
Boasting about an increase in
employment, without mention-
ing that few of those jobs are
high-paying and high-quality,
unfairly masks the relative lack
of development of the Polk
County area, he said.
The county needs $40 million
on top of existing revenues in or-
der to encourage that develop-
ment, he said. This would be
used for the library system, im-
proving outreach, the Citizen's


The Mosaic Company (NYSE:
MOS) announced Monday that
its Louisiana phosphate opera-
tions suffered only minor dam-
age from Hurricane Katrina.
This damage was mainly the
loss of insulation at one of its
plants, which is expected to be
repaired within a week.
These operations remain idle,
however, due to a lack of sulphur
supply.
Mosaic has two facilities lo-
cated about 50 miles northwest
of New Orleans. Its Uncle Sam
plant has the capacity to produce
870,000 metric tonnes of phos-
phoric acid annually, which is
used to produce up to 1.9 million
tonnes of diammonium phos-
phate (DAP) and monoammo-
nium phosphate (MAP) annually
at its nearby Faustina plant.
Mosaic's Uncle Sam plant


uses sulphur as a raw material
which is sourced from nearby oil
refineries.
The impact of Hurricane Ka-
trina has idled many oil refiner-
ies and, as a result, Mosaic's
Louisiana operations are ex-
pected to re-start production as
sulphur becomes more available
in this region.
Approximately 83-percent of
Mosaic's phosphate capacity is
located in Florida which was un-
affected by Hurricane Katrina.
Mosaic's Florida operations are
currently operating at or near
capacity in order to meet market
demand.
In support of the Hurricane
Katrina relief effort, Mosaic is
making a $50,000 donation to
the Red Cross and is matching
employee contributions to the
Red Cross.

September 5, 2005 The Polk County Democrat 5



75th Anniversary Anecdotes

The Poll County Democrat

The Polk County Democrat drew its name from the
political orientation of its founders, Sayer Loyal Frisbie
and his son, Sayer Lloyd Frisbie. The senior Frisbie began
his newspaper career at the age of 18, when he was hired
by the few Democrats in heavily Republican Eldora,
Hardin County, Iowa, to publish a Democrat-oriented
newspaper The Eldora Democrat in 1884 to spread
the Democratic message during the Presidential election.
Lloyd, editor and manager of the paper, wrote in his edito-
rial in the first issue of The Polk County Democrat, pub-
lished on Aug. 28, 1931: "The politics of our publication
is irrevocably emblazoned in the name of our paper." The
Democrat did not endorse a Republican candidate for
President (or probably for any other office) until after his
death in 1963. S.L. Frisbie, IV

Academy program to teach citi-
zens about their local law en-
forcement services, facilities
management, and wireless com-
munications technology.
Wireless technology is vital
because of its ability not only to
attract businesses, but also to al-
low the government to become
more efficient by cutting back on
the number of positions needed,
Herr said.
The increased spending also
will be used for the creation of a
311 system. The 311 system is
meant to reduce traffic on the
911 system by handling non-
emergency information calls,
such as providing numbers for
the police department or the hos-
pital. This in turn will allow the
911 system to be more efficient
in responding to emergencies.
Finally, $2.7 million would be
used to build reserves in the
event of future hurricanes.
Herr saod that the property
tax increase would create a 14
percent increase in revenues. Of
that, 47 percent would be used to
maintain existing projects, and
the rest would go toward these
new programs designed to make
Polk County a better place to
live, he said.
Herr also responded to sug-
gestions that the needed funds
could be derived from increased
government efficiency instead of
increased taxes. While he be-
lieves that there is always room
for improvement, he also be-
lieves the Polk County govern-
ment to be about as efficient as
possible. The proposed budget
includes many cutbacks on un-
necessary positions and man-
dates consolidation of some serv-
ices, he said.

Tuesday at FSC
A Polk School District College
Fair will be held Tuesday, Sept.
6, from 6 to 8 p.m., at Florida
Southern College's Jenkins Field
House, 111 Lake Hollingsworth

Approximately 100 colleges
and universities are expected to
participate, and all students and
parents are invited to attend and
speak with college and univer-
sity representatives about pro-
grams of study, admission, hous-
ing, scholarships, financial assis-
tance, and other issues.
Contact Kay Noble, Polk

Parking is on the Florida

"It is still fresh in the minds
of teachers and students here
how great it felt when many 'out
of state' schools came to our res-
cue when we were in trouble
with the hurricanes," she said.
"How great it was to be able to
purchase canned goods, supplies,
water, and other things we
needed with the checks they
sent."
Ms. Lyle said the encouraging
notes and pictures that out of
state students sent also were
healing therapy for the students.
"Our students will be writing
notes, drawing pictures, and ex-
pressing their sympathy to these
children," she said.
Checks are to be made pay-
able to Lewis Anna Woodbury
Elementary.

More Florida Students


Taking SAT, AP Tests


Record numbers of Florida
students are taking the Scholas-
tic Aptitude Test (SAT) and Ad-
vanced Placement (AP) exams,
with, the percentage of minority
test-takers steadily increasing
and surpassing the national av-
erages' ', -
More than 93,500 of Florida's
2005 high school graduates took
the SAT, representing 65 per'-
cent of the total number of high
school graduates. This is the-
largest number ever 6f:Florida
students who have taken the
SAT and represents a seven per-
cent increase from last year.
Florida has the second great-
est increase in public.school AP
exam-takers when compared to
all other states from 2004 to
2005.
i Florida. we have high ex-
pectations for. our students. We.
want them :to dream big and to
have the tools and skills they
need to make those dreams a re-
ality," said Gov. Jeb Bush.
"Thanks to our partnership
with the, College Board, more
Florida students have access to
higher education and more stu-
dents are including college as
part of their future plans.
"The most noteworthy in-
crease in the number of Florida
stud6enis, taking the SAT is
among minorities."
Minority student participa-
tion has increased from 39 per-
cent in 1999 to 44 percent in
2005. Nationwide, the percent-
age of minority test-takers has
been increasing, but at a slower
rate than in Florida.
In the class of 2005. there was
a 15.5 percent increase in the
number of African-American stu-
dents taking the SAT compared
to an percent increase nation-
wide. The number of Hispanic
students. taking the exam in-
creased 24.7 percent compared
to a 17.8 percent increase na-
tionw-ide.
-We are delighted to see a
seven percent increase in the
number or Florida seniors who
are planning for college by tak-
ing the SAT this year," said Gas-


ton Caperton, president of the
College Board. "This is nearly
double the increase in the per-
centage of Florida seniors who
took the SAT last year and is
evidence that the state's commit-
ment to equity and excellence for
all Florida students is working
,because more of Florida's stu-
dents want to put a college edu-
cation in their future."
Florida student participation
in the SAT is climbing, however
the average score is down two
points from 2004. According to
the College Board, the largernthe
percentage of students taking a
test, the lower the average
scores are likely to be.
The average score for Florida
African-Americans remained the
same as the prior year, and
scores for all other racial-ethnic
groups increased, Hispanics by
four points, whites by seven
points and Asians,by 21 points.
On AP exams, Florida's stu-
dents continue 'to excel in par-
ticipation and performance. Flor-
ida has the second greatest in-
crease in public school AP :exam-
takers when compared to all
other states from 2004 to 2005,
and the second largest increase
among all states in the, number,
of students passing (receiving
grades of 3-5) AP exams.
The number of African-Ameri-
' can and Hispanic students par-
ticipating has close to tripled
since 1999. AP participation for
Hispanic students in Florida's
public schools is close to double
the participation of Hispanic stu-
dents seen nationwide for the
second year in a row.
.Florida leads the nation with
the largest number of African-
American students taking AP ex-
ams and passing them.,
"We've created a c culture ofrasj
piration where students -- re-
gardless of their background -
are striving.to' succeed," said
Education Commissioner John
L. Winn "More students than
ever before are taking advanced
coursework and pre-college ex-'
ams in, high school, leading to
more students going on to post-


secondary education.
"We know that participation
in advanced level coursework
while in high school is the big-
gest predictor of post-secondary
success."
Additionally, the number of
Florida public school 10th grad-
ers taking the Preliminary SAT/
National Merit Scholarship
Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT)
more than tripled from 1999 to
2004. Last year the state saw an
increase of 16.4 percent in the
number of public school 10th
grade students taking the PSAT/
NMSQT, which is offered free-of-
charge to all Florida 10th grad-
ers.
The most significant increase
was among minorities. In the
last year alone, participation
among African-American 10th
graders jumped by more than 30
percent and among Hispanic
10th graders by more than seven
percent.

performance on SAT, PSAT/

ances, such as pool pumps.
Turn off lights when you
leave a room or when they ar-
en't needed.
Keep cooking and bathing

If someone in your home is

Cook outdoors, use a mi-
crowave oven, or prepare cold
meals to avoid heating up the
kitchen and adding moisture to
the air. Microwaves use less
than half the power of a con-
ventional oven and cook food
in about one-fourth the time.
a For cooking, use small ap-
pliances like a toaster oven or
electric skillet. On average,
they use half the energy of a
full-size oven.
If you experience a power
outage, turn off all major appli-
ances, including the' air condi-
tioner, immediately following
the service interruption. This
will prevent the system serving

loaded when power is restored.
When power is restored, turn
appliances on gradually and
only as needed.

Warriors' Cross Country Team
Preparing For New Season


Five Webber Tennis Players

Earn Student-Athlete Award


QUARTERBACK DEVARIOUS COOK (#9) scrambles to the
side for a run in the first quarter during last Friday's game at Kath-
leen. The Yellow Jackets failed to achieve victory in their first dis-
trict game of the season. (Photo by Jack Littlefield)


Devils Stop Jackets, 21-14


Five members of the Webber
International University men's
tennis team qualified and re-
ceived the intercollegiate Tennis
Association Scholar-Athlete
Award for the 2004-2005 aca-
demic year.
The players named were
Christophe Bonadona, Emerson
Correa, Leigh Griffiths, Nico
Jungkind, and Yuiti Lopes.
This accomplishment leaves
Webber International's men's
tennis team as the only NAIA
school in the country to have five
student-athletes to earn this
award in 2005.
Not only did this team excel
in the classroom, but they were


ranked 15th in the nation in
NAIA. Under first-year coach
Patricio Misitrano, they carried
on a tradition and qualified for
the NAIA national tournament
in Mobile, Ala.
In order to earn ITA scholar-
athlete status, a player must
meet the following criteria: 1) Be
a varsity letter winner; 2) Have
a grade point average of at least
3.5 cumulative; and 3) Have
been enrolled at their present
school for a minimum of two se-
mesters.
The Warriors will be starting
fall practice soon, preparing for
the ITA regional tournament.


The Warriors are busy pre-
paring for the 20.05 cross country
season.
The men are led by All-Con-
ference and All-Region runner
Austin Richmond. Austin was
also an individual NAIA Na-
tional Qualifier for WIU last
year.
"Austin, in my mind, is one of
the top runners in our region
and I believe he will be closely
followed by Marcus Marshall,"
Coach Rick Moody said.
Marcus is the only other vet-
eran and was injured during last
year's cross country season. He
fired up the track last year with


personal best times in the 800
and 1,500 meters.
After these two, the Warriors
are a very young team. The
freshmen team will be led by
Charlie Tempelton, Carlos Guer-
rero, Jimmy Swauger, Thomas
Weeks, and Tommy Chasanoff.
"I am excited about this year's
team because I have runners
that ran cross country in high
school. Last year, I inherited a
few cross country runners and
many sprinters that ran for the
conditioning. I feel that Webber
picked up great student-athletes
that have tremendous potential,"
said Coach Moody.

Bartow came up short in a
tough defensive struggle against
district rival Kathleen,. 21-14,
Friday night at Johnny Johnson
Stadium in Kathleen.
This early season contest was
the first district game for both
teams and featured the top two
teams in the district from a year
ago.
Both offensives had trouble
getting on track, with a light
rain falling throughout the first
half, and two quick and hard hit-
ting defenses. The teams com-
bined for six turnovers, 10 punts,
19 penalties, and less than 300
total offensive yards.
Kathleen held onto a one-
point advantage as Bartow was
driving for a score, when, on the
final play, the Red Devils inter-
cepted their third Yellow Jacket
pass attempt for the game and
returned it 93 yards.for a Kath-
leen touchdown on the game's fi-
nal play.
The Red Devils took an early
lead when Antwan Murray
picked off a Bartow pass on the
Yellow Jackets' first offensive
play. Eight plays later, junior
quarterback Dominique Davis
pushed into.the end zone from
one yard out on fourth and goal.
Bartow's first touchdown was
set up by special teams. Jacket
defensive end Tyrone Berry led a
host of Jackets as they blocked a
Kathleen punt attempt, and re-
covered the ball on the Red Devil
one-yard line. On the next play
Brandon Bridges tied the game
with his first touchdown of the
season.
Bartow took the lead at
halftime, on another touchdown
set up by the special teams. This
time the Red Devil punter never
had a chance to kick the ball as a
swarm of Yellow Jackets tackled
him on the Kathleen 22-yard
line with less than a minute to
play in the first half.
Five plays later, Jacket quar-
terback Devarious Cook scram-
bled off fourth and goal, and con-
nected with Alfrederick Jones in
the corner of the end zone from
three yards out with just four
seconds remaining. Cook then
added the two-point conversion
with a strong run.
Kathleen regained the lead
for good, by scoring points on
their first two possessions of the
third quarter. A 36-yard field

goal by Clint Slappey trimmed
Bartow's lead to five.
Moments later Red Devil
sophomore running Terrell Col-
ston scored from six yards out to
cap a four-play, 37-yard drive
consuming just less than 90 sec-
onds.
Colston finished the night
with 85 yards on 23 carries.
Bartow tried to mounted a
comeback. After forcing a Red
Devil punt, with only three sec-
onds left in the game, Cook
tossed a screen pass to Ryan Col-
son, who ran for 17 yards, and
suffered a late hit out of bounds
by Kathleen. The Red Devils
were flagged for 15 yards, and
gave Bartow one more play.
However, Cook's "hail Mary"
pass toward the end zone was
picked off and returned 93 yards
for a Red Devil touchdown.
Jacket wide receiver Grant
Clover caught five passes for 50
yards, while Bartow's leading
rusher, Colson, was held for only
21 yards on 15 carries.
With the win, Kathleen takes
an early lead in the district
standings, tied with Haines City.
Bartow will travel to Auburn-
dale Friday night, while Kath-
leen will visit George Jenkins.
