Hospital Back Entrance



Could Come in 2007


TH LJURSDAY
September 8, 2005
Copyright 2005 Frisbie Publshing Co. Inc.


Plans for a secondary entrance
to Bartow Regional Medical
Center haven't been forgotten,
but the project appears still to be
well over a year away.
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
told the planning and zoning
board that plans are being made
for an entrance to BRMC off of
the Old Eagle Lake Road as part
of an $850,000 project to rebuild
that road from U.S. Highway 98
to a point 300 feet east of Wilson
Avenue.
That project will include inter-
section improvements at Wilson


and Old Eagle Lake Road, to
include a traffic light.
The secondary entrance into
the hospital will be an extension
of Wilson Avenue, north from its
present end at Old Eagle Lake
Road.
A $150,000 project to correct
drainage problems on Park
Avenue is part of the same pro-
gram, Wiegers said.
The city expects to have plans
for the new road by next Summer,
with construction to follow soon
after, he said.
"So we're looking at a mid-2007


construction time-frame," Board
Member Bo Raulerson said, glum-
ly.
Construction of a secondary
road to the hospital was made a
condition of the certificate of occu-
pancy for the new hospital when
it was opened several years ago,
but no deadline was established
for building the road.
At present the only regular
entrance to the hospital is from
Highway 98. A construction road
from Old Eagle Lake Road can be
used in an emergency by firefight-
ers and other emergency respon-


ders, but the road is gated and
the key is available only to emer-
gency personnel.
It is generally assumed that
when the secondary road is built,
it will become the. primary route
used by both staff and patients,
because motorists will not have to
enter highway traffic upon leav-
ing the hospital.
One motorist already has been
killed and several others injured
in wrecks at the Highway 98
entrance to the hospital.


3 Injured in Crash at Hospital Entrance


A LANDMARK FOR MANY YEARS, this old
fertilizer loading building is being torn down by
owner John V. Simon, Jr. While Morris Mine has
been out of business for decades, the structure has
been an interesting architectural entrance marker


on West Highway 60 for Bartow. Before it was
fenced in, photographers used its angles and pat-
terns as subjects and as settings for portraits. No
plans for the site have been announced. (Staff

Storm Tax May Be Cut


For Churches Next Year


Bartow's churches will be
required to pay the city's new
stormwater utility tax this year,
but that could change in future
years.
City commissioners generally
agreed that churches should be
exempt from the new fee, or at
least given, preferential treat-
ment.
All single-family houses are
charged $45 a year. Other build-
ings are charged based on their
size in relation to a home.
The tax is based on Equivalent
Residential Units, or ERUs. A
building with 10 times are much
impervious surface as the aver-
age home is charged 10 ERUs, or
$450.
Commissioners said they have
gotten a number of calls opposing
the assessment of the stormwater
fee against churches and low
income families.
The city's stormwater fee con-
sultant, Steve Dutch, told the
commission that the stormwater
fee is like an electric bill, even
though it is collected by the coun-
ty tax collector on annual proper-


ty tax bills.
Churches are not exempted by
state law from such fees, even
though they are exempt from ad'
valorem property taxes, he said.
City Atty. George Dunlap told
commissioners they could amend
the stormwater tax ordinance to
exempt churches, but that it is
too late to do so for the coming
year.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
warned the commission: "I think
you're opening the door to all tax-
exempt facilities," such as schools
and other government buildings.
He said churches already get a
break from the city because they
are charged for electricity at resi-
dential not commercial -
rates, and are exempt from the 10
percent public service tax on util-
ities.
Commissioner Andy Laurent
suggested that churches could be
charged the residential stormwa-
ter fee of $45, regardless of size.
Asked how he arrived at the
$45 rate, Dutch, the consultant,
said the city wanted to get
$600,000 from the tax, and he


came up with a fee that would
produce that amount of revenue.
Commissioners said they
would consider that possibility,
but voted to reaffirm the tax in its
present form for the coming year.
DeLegge told the commission
that the $600,000 will pay the
salaries of a five-person stormwa-
ter utility department, but that
they will be moved from the pub-
lic works department, and no new
employees will be hired.
Included in the first year's
budget is $250,000 to pay an engi-
neering firm to prepare a
stormwater master plan, he said.
The stormwater tax is intend-
ed to provide a funding source to
relieve flooding problems
throughout the city.

In response to a complaint
from Gerald Cochran that he was
being assessed on four parcels for
the land on which his house is
located, DeLegge said anyone
who believes a mistake has been
made can file an appeal with Don
Shaw at city hall.


City's Last Fiscal Year


Virtually Break-Even


The city of Bartow ended its
2003-04 fiscal year with a deficit
of $139,000 virtually a break-
even year for a city that handled
more than $50 million the
external.auditor told the city com-
mission.
The city's electric department,
which produces the majority of
the revenue for operating city
government, didn't make as much
money as anticipated, causing the
city to scale back on expenditures


by $2.1 million, Tierso Nunez of
G.T. Nunez and Associates told
the commission.
'You would have been better
off without the hurricanes," he
observed. Hurricane-related
expenses were a factor in both the
city's lackluster financial perfor-
mance and the lateness of the
external audit, which usually is
completed early in the calendar
year.
Nunez was high in his praise of


the performance of Fin. Dir.
David Wright, who completed his
first full year on the job during
the 2003-04 fiscal year.
"The accounting was much,
much better," he said.
"Last year was a pretty good
year.
'You're not out of the woods
yet," he cautioned, saying that
the city needs to reduce its

Three people received minor
injuries in an accident at the
entrance of Bartow Regional
Medical Center late yesterday
morning.
According to Bartow Police
Officer Carl Smith, Leslie Billie
Fogle, 81, of Bartow, was leaving
the hospital driving a 2003
Chevrolet Impala, when she
crossed the northbound lanes of
Highway 98 into the path of a
1999 Dodge Durango, driven by
Candace Barnhart, 39, of Bartow.
The left front end of the Dodge
collided with the side of the
Chevrolet, and came to a stop
just before entering the south-
bound lanes of the highway.
Ms. Fogle complained of head
and neck pains and was trans-
ported to BRMC ,. Polk County
EMS, Officer Smith said. Mrs.
Barnhart sustained injuries on
both of her arms from the
deployed air bag, and a passen-
ger in her vehicle, 22-year-old
Ericka Haas, had injuries to her
left arm, stomach, and left leg
from the air bag and seat belt.
All involved in the crash were
wearing seat belts/restraints,
Officer Smith said.
Three young children who also
were passengers in the vehicle
were not injured.
This was the second accident
to occur in the area in less than a
week.
Two people were injured last
Thursday morning when a car
and tractor trailer collided on
Highway 98 in front of Bartow
Ford.
According to Bartow Police
Officer Kristi Tew, a 1995 Ford
Contour heading south stopped
in the roadway and attempted to
enter the turning lane in front of
Bartow Ford, but instead moved
partially back into the left lane.
A tractor trailer traveling two
vehicles behind the car used
"evasive action," leading his vehi-
cle to the left of the turning area
that leads to Bartow Ford.
The Ford then again turned
left into the path of the tractor
trailer, and was struck. The trac-
tor trailer jackknifed and came to
a stop.





BRMC Sends

Relief To


The driver of the semi, James
Spencer Lawson, 67, of
Lakeland, was transported to
BRMC, where he was treated


and released.
The driver of the Ford, 85-
year-old Ermin Walton Noonan of
Lakeland, was taken to Lakeland


ONLY MINOR INJURIES were reported after
yesterday morning's accident at the entrance of
Bartow Regional Medical Center; however, the
crash left everyone involved pretty shaken up.
According to Bartow police, the accident happened

she was listed in stable condition,

Sister center Mosaic Plans 'Salute To


In Biloxi

Last Friday morning, at 2
a.m., the Bartow Regional
Medical Center sent a medical
team to Biloxi to help with the
life-saving operations there.

Center, the only operating hospi-
tal in the area, is a sister-hospi-
tal to Bartow Regional.
The team rode in an SUV rent-
ed by the CEO of Bartow
Regional, Justin Davis.

Hometown Heroes' On Friday


A "Salute To Hometown
Heroes" will honor those who
keep the community safe to live
and work.
The event, which also remem-
bers the September 11 terrorist
attack, is planned by Mosaic on
Friday, Sept. 9, around the flag-
pole at the Mosaic gate entrance
at 3200 Highway 60 West,
Bartow, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.

mats seized by militant followers


of the Ayatollah Khomeini on
Nov. 4, 1979.
Of the 71, he was among the
52 Iranian hostages held captive
for 444 days. He was released on
Jan. 20, 1981, moments after the
inauguration of President Ronald
Reagan.
Polk County Sheriff Grady
Judd will report on PCSO per-
sonnel who helped in the after-
math of Hurricane Katrina.
Joining them will be special
guest speaker Putnam and repre-
sentatives from the Veterans of
Foreign Wars; servicemen from
all branches of the US military
forces; Polk County Sheriff's
Department; Bartow, Fort Meade
and Mulberry Police and Fire


Departments; the Polk County
Emergency Medical Service

nized for the personal sacrifice
given for freedom. All others are
encouraged to wear red, white
and blue.
"We will remember those who
lost their lives after the terrorist
attack on 9-11 and salute those
who continue to keep us safe,"
Debbie Burdett, spokesman for
Mosaic, said.

International Winning
Peace Posters On Display
At Bartow Public Library


International winners of the
2004 Peace Posters contest,
sponsored by Lions Clubs of the
world, are now on display at the
Bartow Public Library.
"Their creative talent and con-
cept of peace is outstanding," Li-
brarian Carol Schmidt, who
manages the display, said. "Visi-
tors are amazed at the youthful
talent and basic desire for a
peaceful world in which to live."
The Lions Clubs have
1,336,961 members in 193 coun-
tries and geographic areas, and
each district is asked to sponsor
a contest among the 11, 12, and
13 year old students in their
area.
Local judges select the most
outstanding posters in their dis-
trict, with the final judging be-
ing done at the International
Headquarters. The world wide
winner receives a cash reward of
$2,500, and a trip to the United
Nations Headquarters in New
York for the presentation of their
award, accompanied by his par-
ents or sponsors. This annual
ceremony is planned for Febru-
ary or March of 2006.
The Bartow Lions Clubs are
sponsoring the contest in con-
junction with local art teachers
Ren6e Long of Bartow Middle
School, Dorothy Williams of Un-
ion Academy Middle Magnet
School, and Lesha Hall of the


First Methodist 7-8th grade
school.
Bartow Art Guild members
will act as the local judges of all
submitted artwork. Judging will
be on creativeness, originality,
and adherence to the theme of
"Peace Without Borders."
The most outstanding poster
from each school will be for-
warded for judging at state level.
From there, the selected posters
go to International Headquar-
ters for world wide judging.
The Lions Peace Poster Con-
test is open to all students at the
sponsored schools whose births
fall between Nov. 16, 1991, and
Nov. 15, 1994. The artwork may
be on almost any medium, using
any material (chalk, charcoal,
pastels), but must conform to
size requirements of 13" X 20" to
20" X 24" (the usual poster board
size).
All work must be original
with nothing three-dimensional,
pasted or glued, and with no
writing or numbering.
For further contest informa-
tion, contact Lions Chairman Al
Chiles at 533-6792.
Last year's winning posters
may be viewed at the library,
2150 South Broadway, from 9
a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through
Thursday, and from 9 a.m. to 5
p.m. Friday and Saturday.

the Bartow Lions Club, Bartow
Deputy Fire Chief Bobby Pitman

stroyed two buildings at the cor
ner of Main Street and Wilson

Receiving the alarm at 6:59

soon sent a request for another '

- the buildings.
During the course of the fire,
assistance was dispatched from
Mulberry, Winter Haven, Lake
9 Wales, Lakeland, Fort Meade,
and Polk County fire depart-. -
- ments, with back up from the
Bartow Police Department and .
Emergency Medical Services.
At one time during the blaze,
a Bartow firefighter was unac- o
counted for at the fire scene,
causing anxiety until it was
learned he was assisting county
firefighters concerned with sav-
ing the third building on the
block.
"No building is worth the life -
of a firefighter," Pitman said.
The cause of the blaze was de-
termined to be a faulty light fix-
ture above the ceiling in one of
the buildings. .,
Pitman strongly recom- -
mended installing home smoke f-- j '"
alarms, which are available at
any discount or hardware store. -
"It's inexpensive protection for" ^ J --
you and your family," he said. '. \

Historical Museum


HUGE CABBAGES grow in Alaska. (Photo provided)


By LETA WRIGHT

We pay tribute to Ms. Lillian
Driskell this week.
She was a charter member of
the 90 Year Club, sponsored by
the Fort Meade Historical Mu-
seum.
Her birthday was Jan. 15,
1909. She was a lifelong resident
of Fort Meade, who died on Aug.
21.
I have just returned from a
15-day trip to Canada and
Alaska.
I flew from Tampa to Seattle,
took a coach to Vancouver,
boarded the cruise ship, the
Zaandam, and cruised up the in-
land waterway to Skagway.
From there, we took a narrow
gauge train to the Yukon border,
transferred to a coach to White-
horse, Beaver Creek, to Fair-
banks, then the McKinley Ex-
plorer, a plush train, took us to
Denali Park. From there, it was
on to Anchorage in a coach.
The transportation was great.
We stopped at attractions along
the way. The museums were
filled with the history of gold
rush days, and all the artifacts
from that time.
I took a ride on the paddle
wheel show boat at Fairbanks on
the Cheena River and saw a

dressing out a large salmon,
which she made look so easy. I
also saw a waterwheel, a place
where animal pelts were shown
and Susan Hatcher's home.
Susan Hatcher was the Idi-
trod race winner for two years.
She demonstrated her racing
team of 16 dogs by racing around
a track in back of her home. The
dogs pulled a heavy duty jeep
with her on it, instead of a sled.
It was exciting.
This was my fourth trip to De-
nali Park in Alaska, and for the
first time, I saw Mount McKin-
ley in all its snow, sun and
splendor.
The whole mountain was in
full view. We traveled 62 miles
to into the park seeing animals
along the way, and then, that
big, beautiful mountain shinning
so bright and big. It was a thrill.
I met a couple from Iowa who
comes to Fort Meade every Feb-
ruary to the Flywheeler Park.
Also on the cruise ship were
Ronnie and Alliene Godwin from
Bartow. What a surprise. I just
never know who I'll see on these
trips. We had a good visit.

the history of the land. There
was a play and musical every
night in each of the stops.
1 panned for gold in Skagway,
and discovered several little
specks. They grow cabbage that
weighs as much as 125 pounds. I
wondered how much slaw that
would make.
The food was outstanding and
the salmon was especially good.
They serve it everywhere. They
know how to grill it to perfection.
Skagway has wooden sidewalks,
steps, stores and wooden fixtures
in the stores like in the olden
days.
The stores are filled with furs,
jackets, ivory, gemstones, gold
necklaces, pendants, miniature
animals, totem poles and wood
carvings, all of which are very
beautiful.
It was a treasured trip with
glaciers, bald eagles, whales, sea
otters, puffins, seals, caribou,
deer, bears and reindeer. I would
like to go back to Seward and go
salmon fishing.
The weather was so nice and
crispy cool, it was a real pleasure

Bartow Center 'Lending a Helping Hand' Job Fair

With Hurricane Katrina Relief Drive Planned


In an effort to help the victims
of the devastation caused by
Hurricane Katrina, the Bartow
Center has launched a relief
campaign, "Seniors Lending a
Helping Hand."
Staff members and residents
of the center will be collecting
items to add to personal care
kits they will assemble. The kits
will be given to the Bay Area
Food Bank, located in Theodore,
Ala., which is assisting victims
from Alabama and Mississippi.
Bartow Center will provide
toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap,
washcloths, and shampoo for the
kits.
They are reaching out to the
community to donate additional
items to be included in the kits.
Those items could be travel size
facial tissues, razors, nail clip-
pers, hair brushes, combs, dental


floss, travel size lotion, lip balm,
aspirin, antacid tablets, sun-
screen, and insect repellent.
Also acceptable are single-
serving foods and snacks, includ-
ing breakfast bars, nuts, peanut
butter, fruits, applesauce, and
"heat-n-eat" items (pop-off tops
preferred).
Cash donations cannot be ac-
cepted; any cash donations
should be made to the American
Red Cross or Salvation Army.
"Our staff and residents are
very excited about this project -
we all wanted to find some way
to reach out to the victims and
let them know people around the
country are thinking of them,"
said Brian Tenney, spokesman
for the center. "We're extending
this project out to the commu-
nity so that they can help us to
make the daily life of these vic-


tims a little easier."

Passing the Buck


Solves No Problems


It seems that after every major cata-
strophe, there is an obligatory cacophony
of complaints from local officials that
help didn't arrive fast enough.
That is understandable.
When it's your house that's on fire, the
fire department always takes too long to
get there.
NBC has practically demanded that
President Bush fire the director of the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency.
On Meet the Press, Tim Russert, usutal-
ly a courteous TV interviewer, ridiculed
the FEMA director, Michael Brown, for
statements by Brown and by President
Bush that the flooding of New Orleans
caught them by surprise.
When Russert finally had to pause to
inhale, Brown explained that the context
of the statement was that after the
national press reported on Tuesday
morning that New Orleans had "dodged
the bullet" when the storm took a turn to
the northeast, they thought that New
Orleans was out of danger.
It was not an illogical supposition.
Even NBC's telethon Friday night to
raise money for the victims turned into
an attack on the President. There is a time
and a place to attack his leadership; a
telethon to raise money for charity is nei-
ther the time nor the place. -
A newspaper story last Thursday
reported that there were people in the
Superdome who had not had a bath for
four or five days. To appear in a morning
newspaper on Thursday, the story had to
have been written Wednesday. The levy
was breached on Tuesday. People had
only been in the Superdome for a day or
two when it was reported that they had-
n't had a bath for four or five days.
Disaster preparedness and disaster
relief must start at the local level. It was
Mayor Ray Nagin who made the deci-
sion a wise one to order the evacu-
ation of New Orleans. But apparently he
failed to mobilize the city's bus fleet and
school buses to transport the large num-
ber of citizens who don't own cars.
It was the New Orleans police depart-
ment who made the first response to law-
lessness. It was after they proved inca-
pable of handling the problem that
National Guardsmen from several states


were mobilized to restore order. That is
the way the system is supposed to work;
the Guard's job is to support local
authorities, not to push them aside.
At what point should Gov. Kathleen
Blanco, who is white, tell Mayor Nagin,
who is black, that it's time to move over
and let her take charge of relief and
recovery?
At what point should President Bush,
who is a male Republican, tell Governor
Blanco, who is a female Democrat, that
it's time for her to move over and let him
take charge of relief and recovery?
When water bottlers offered to send
truckloads of water for free to
stricken areas, and local officials refused
the offer, somebody wasn't thinking.
Clearly there is a need for better plan-
ning.
Perhaps with the approach of every
major hurricane, FEMA should preposi-
tion truckloads of water, food, ice, med-
ical supplies, tents, generators, and other
essentials, ready to roll as soon as the
roads become passable.
Perhaps there is a need for more pre-
planning for the National Guard of one
state to respond to a crisis in a neighbor-
ing state, not just within its own borders.
Such planning can be done.
Polk County's emergency recovery
efforts were among the best in the' state
after last year's hurricanes. It took prior
planning and a spirit of cooperation.
That's not too much to ask.
There will be many postmortems on
what went wrong, as well as what went
' right, after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf
Coast. Hopefully, there will be some seri-
ous soul-searching into the wisdom of
building a city in a hole in the ground
that is lower than the water levels of the
lake that borders it on one side and the
river that borders it on another.
From all of this can come a plan for
better response in the future, for a
response that will reduce loss of life and
other forms of suffering.
It is unlikely that many of the solutions
will come from television interviewers or
telethon entertainers bent on lambasting
the President, or from local officials
whose concept of emergency response is
to blame all their problems on the feder-
al government.

OUR READERS SAY

Subdivision Is Not Compatible


BARTOW Bartow's plan-
ning and zoning board approved
a recommendation for the
Winding River Cove subdivision
at the Aug. 29 meeting. Mrs.
(Zoning Board Member Susie)
Brewer made the comment:
"Most opponents, are non-resi-
dents of the city of Bartow." Does
she not know there are no city
residents in the area to object?
The results would have been the


same if we were city residents.
What is compatible property?
It appears the officials and devel-
opers have one definition, the
residents another. The properties
adjacent to this subdivision vary
from 16,400 to 261,300 square feet
compared to 10,500 in the pro-
posed subdivision. Is this com-
patible? My opinion is that it is
not.
We are not asking that the sub-


division not be built, just lower
density. Will the tax base on 10 to
12 less houses bankrupt the city
.of Bartow?
I cannot remember a subdivi-
sion not being approved by the
city commission after the zoning
board's recommended approval.
That being said, the public
hearing scheduled for Oct. 3 will
be another waste of time.

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

Sayer Is Out, and This Is Not Mary


"Hello," I answered, cheerful-
ly, because there is always a
chance that a call at home comes
from a member of my family or
our staff.
"Sayer?" came the enthusiastic
response.
"Yeah," I replied, flatly. Sayer
is my first name; the only place it
appears is on sucker lists. I have
been called by my initials, S. L.,
since infancy.
"Sayer, this is Paininthebutt!"
he replied. That is not his real
name, but it fits.
"Yeah."
"How are you today, Sayer?"
"Doing well."
Paininthebutt was delighted to
learn of my well-being.
"I see that you're about ready
to apply for Medicare!"
"Yeah."
"And I understand that you
haven't been able to get answers
to all your tilIL -[Ioni-
"That's not quite true."
We had a Social Security
speaker at Rotary a few weeks
ago, and he answered all my


questions. Mr. Butt was not
deterred.
"I'm going to be in your area
tomorrow, Sayer, and I'd like to
come talk to you about
Medicare!"
He ended every sentence with
an exclamation point. I suspect he
sends E-mails with every third
line in all caps.
"What are you selling?"
"Nothing!"
"Okay, let's get to the point.
Who are you employed by?"
Cornered, he told me. I recog-
nized the name of his company;
they sell nursing home policies.
It's the company Dad had cover-
age with for about 15 years.
"Not interested," I said, and
hung up before he could go to the
next line on his canned pitch.
I am the world's most informal
person.
When I answer the phone and
somebody says "Mr. Frisbie?" my
usual response is "This is S. L."
The same when a visitor comes
to the office.
It doesn't bother me when I get


a puzzled look, or am asked to
repeat.
"S. L., my initials. At one time,
there were four generations of
Frisbies living in this town with
the same' name. They called me
by my initials, because that was
all that was left."
But it is a familiarity that is
mine to extend, not another's to
assume. I extend others the same
courtesy if they are old enough to
be out of school.
Mr. Butt Pain, for short -
blew a sale.

Boiler room callers do not rank
terribly high in my esteem, even
the ones who are calling from
within the United States, and
who share my love of English as a
first language.
There is one sucker list on
which my name appears as
Frisble, not Frisbie. For some rea-
son, those folks never address me
as Sayer; it's always Mr. Frisble.
"That's close," I respond.
They apologize.
I have yet to have a single per-


son ask me for the correct name.

My favorites are the ones who
call and when I answer the phone
say:
"Mary?"
"Do I sound like Mary?"
They're stumped for an
answer.

The worst salesman I ever met
face to face, hands down, was
selling a yellow page directory.
He had actually been referred to
me by a friend, whose name, hap-
pily, I can no longer remember.
This guy gave "pushy" a bad
name.
A minute or two into his
canned spiel, he asked: "What do
people call you?"
I fixed him with my most with-
ering glare and said: "The ones
who are trying to sell me some-
thing usually call me Mr. Frisbie."
Okay, I probably shouldn't
have done that; it was out of char-
acter for me.
But it felt so good.

History From Our Files
Compiled from the files of The Democrat by Loyal Frisbie


Fifty Years Ago "
Total rewards offered for infor-
mation about the blasting of the
Bonnie chemical plant rose to
$12,000 yesterday as International
Minerals & Chemical Corp. raised
its offer to $10,000. The company
previously had offered $5,000 for
information leading to the trial and
conviction of the bombers of the
plant. Local 35, International
Chemical Workers Union, which
has been'on strike for three months,
has offered $500 for solution of the
crime; Southern Labor Journal pub-
lished in Tampa has offered $500;
and the international union has
offered $1,000.
More than $1,000 was stolen
from the safe at Chartrand's
Restaurant in this. morning's early
hours. The safe was found in a
clearing behind the restaurant,
with the door ripped off and looted
of its contents.
For the workers and manage-
ment of International Minerals &
Chemical Corp. and American
Cyanamid Co., the Polk County
phosphate strike is 14 weeks old
today. There are no signs of
progress.
Forty-Five Years Ago
Six sections of second and third
grade pupils at Union Academy
Elementary School are on double
sessions because the school's
enrollment has outstripped the
school's capacity, Supv. Prin. Wm.
S. Lawrence said today.
Sheriff's deputies still are
searching for the burglars who
broke into the Davison Chemical
Corp. headquarters four nights
ago, tied up a night watchman,
cracked a safe, and made off with
between $300 and $400 in cash.
Bartow's golf course will be
leased to a five-man group who
will hire a manager to operate the
course. City commissioners made
the decision Tuesday night after a
lengthy discussion.


Forty Years Ago
Kirby W. Blain of Lakeland, who
retired Tuesday as a deputy circuit
court clerk, was praised for his 28
years of public service in a resolu-
tion adopted by the county com-
mission.
Nine candidates have qualified
for the three city commission seats
which will be on the ballot in the
Oct. 12 election; for Seat 2, the one-
year unexpired term of D.J. Spence
who died in office: W.B. Geiger
(incumbent) and G.C. Blanc; Seat 4,
three years: F.B. Lawrence (incum-
bent), Luther Garner, Mrs. W.P.
Tomasello and W.R. Gillooley; Seat
5, three years, Nye Jordan (incum-
bent), Edward W. Korpa and
Charles A. Richardson.
The Polk County All-Stars have

win over the Palmetto Jaybirds.
Bob Murphy, .Jr., of Nichols
roared to his second consecutive
Armour Invitational victory here
Monday, finishing the 54-hole golf
tournament with a 207 total nine
strokes below par and 13 strokes
ahead of runner-up Tracy Allen of
Winter Park.
Thirty-Five Years Ago
Sept. 7, 1970 The Polk County
Democrat printed for the first time
on its new Goss offset press. We
entered on this new (to us) printing
method although a vital piece of
equipment a platemaker had
not yet arrived. With the friendly
assistance of two other Polk
County publishers Larry Burr of
the Winter Haven Herald and John
Marsh of the Lake Wales
Highlander we made our print-
ing plates on their equipment, then
nervously introduced our new
product to our readers. Still some
bugs to be worked out, but, all in
all, this first effort wasn't bad.
Three virtual unknowns scram-


bled the Democratic races for state
office in Tuesday's election:
Lawton Chiles edged into the run-
off for United States Senator;
Reubin Askew bounded into a run-
off for Governor; and Tom
O'Malley ousted State Treasurer
Broward Williams.
Bruce Scamehorn, 22-year-old
veteran of all eight USS Invitational
golf tournaments, won for the first
time with a 54-hole total of 210, six
strokes under par and 10 strokes
ahead of his nearest rival.

John Finnerty, a Bartow post
office letter carrier for nine years,
has been appointed postmaster of
Intercession City, it was announced
today.
Fire departments from Bartow,
Fort Meade and Mulberry respond-
ed early Tuesday morning to an
alarm at the Brewster Phosphate
plant 10 miles south of Mulberry,
but were unable to save the build-
ing, which housed the company's
medical facility and personnel
office. Company officials placed
the loss at $250,000.
Lamar Pilgrim, always a threat
to win the Girls' Villa golf classic,
finally put it all together this week-
end, and won with a six-under-par
210, three strokes ahead of runner-
up Dave Snyder of Winter Haven.

USDA Modifies Sugar Program


In response to the sugar mar-
ket turmoil created by Hurricane
Katrina, the U.S. Dept. of Agri-
culture has modified the fiscal
year 2005 sugar program.
USDA is increasing the FY
2005 Overall Allotment Quantity
(OAQ), which is the quantity of
domestic sugar that may enter
the market and announced early
entry of the FY 2006 refined
sutgar tariff-rate quota, begin-
ning Sept. 8.
The early entry of the FY
2006 refined sugar tariff-rate
quota does not include specialty
sugar, for which the previously
announced dates of opening re-
main unchanged.
This announcement follows
the Aug. 19 sugar program ac-
tions intended to increase do-
mestic supply.
The catastrophic hurricane
was the latest in a series of
events that has severely tight-
ened the sugar market and


threatened the domestic produc-
tion of sugar containing foods.
The sugar market has pro-
gressively tightened across FY
2005 due to unexpected strong
demand, reduced cane sugar pro-
duction caused by previous hur-
ricanes and expected weather-re-
duced Sept. 2005 beet sugar pro-
duction in the upper Midwest.
The actions taken today are
intended to boost refined sugar
quantities immediately available
to ameliorate already-tight do-
mestic market conditions, exac-
erbated by the forced closure of
two major sugar refineries by
the hurricane..
The refineries in the New Or-
leans area produce about 5,500
tons of sugar daily.
USDA is committed to provide
an adequate supply of sugar to
meet domestic needs, within the
bounds of the current sugar pro-
gram.


Bok Tower Hosts Recital

Historic Bok Sanctuary will
commemorate Anton Brees'
birthday with a special carillon
recital Sept. 14.
Brees was chosen by Edward

feature "America" by Friedrich
Silcher, "The Star-Spangled
Banner," "Intermezzo" from
Cavalleria Rusticana, folk songs
such as the Scottish "Bonnie
Dundee," and hymns such as "
What a Friend We Have in Je-
sus."
The recital is a recording of a
live performance by Brees on
March 1, 1959.
Brees was one of the world's
most famous carillonneurs of his
time and was chosen by the re-
nowned Taylor Bell Foundry in


England to inaugurate numer-
ous carillons throughout the
world.
A native of Antwerp, Belgium,
he began his career at Our La-
dy's Cathedral in Antwerp. He
was carillonneur at Park Avenue
Baptist Church in New York
City, and he also worked at Mer-
cersburg Academy in Pennsylva-
nia before coming to Florida.
Brees played a summer series at
Duke University for many years
during his career at Historic Bok
Sanctuary.
Historic Bok Sanctuary is
open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., with
the last guest admitted at 5 p.m.

Florida FWC Officers Work To

Save Hurricane Katrina Victims


FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE Conservation Commission Pi-
lot Lt. Joe Johnston readies his helicopter as it leaves the hanger at
the Lake City Regional Airport. Johnston left Wednesday to assist in
recovery efforts in Mississippi. (Photo provided)

FWC Officers Deploy To

Hurricane Ravaged Areas


Nineteen people from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission's (FWC)
North Central Region are now in
Biloxi, Miss., providing assis-
tance to the victims of Hurricane
Katrina.
They joined up with more
than 50 other FWC personnel
from around Florida as well as
other state agencies to assist in
recovery operations in the storm-'
ravaged Mississippi.
Those deploying include law
enforcement officers, radio tech-
nicians and mechanics.
The FWC contingent also in-
cludes members of the agency's
Special Operations Group that
mobilizes with other law enforce-
ment agencies in times of natu-
ral or man-made disasters.
FWC officers in the Special o
Operations Group undergo spe-
cial training and use the agen-
cy's specialized equipment for
operations on the water and in
wilderness areas.
This is the first time FWC of-
ficers have responded to an
emergency outside of Florida.
One of the latest to leave was
Lt. Joe Johnston, helicopter pilot
for the North Central Region,
who flew from the Lake City Re-
gional Airport this afternoon.
"This is a humanitarian ef-
fort. Anyone who works for a
government agency should be
%%illing.to help. I have a feeling...
that if this storm had hit Florida
and caused the extensive dam-
age that we're now seeing in
Mississippi and Louisiana, those
folks would be coming to help
us," he said.


Johnston's helicopter is
equipped with a Forward Look-
ing Infra-Red (FLIR) system
that can help locate victims with
thermal imaging. Thermal, or in-
frared energy, is light that is not
visible to the human eye. Even
very cold objects, like ice cubes,
emit infrared. The higher the ob-
ject's temperature, the greater
the IR radiation emitted.
."The FLIR can help us locate
people, day or night," Johnston
said. "I'll do the flying while an-
other one of our pilots, who is a
FLIR operator, works the cam-
era."
Johnston also flew over devas-
tated areas after the storms hit
Florida last year.
"It's always different when
you're there. What you see on
television can't even begin to
give you the total picture," John-
ston said. "When you're there,
you can smell it. You can see the
devastation up close. You're
right there with people who have
been affected. You do what you
can to ease the suffering."
Johnston readied his helicop-
ter to make the flight and re-
ceived last-minute instructions
from his supervisor in Tallahas-
see.
"I'm not exactly sure where
I'll be this evening," he said, "but
hopefully I'llbe able to help.
"I got into law enforcement
'-because -I'wawnted to catch 'bad
guys,'" Johnston said. "Then,
once I became 'an officer, I real-
ized there's so much more to the
job. It's about helping people too.
That's why we're all there."


New Tool Helps Seniors Play

It Safe Behind the Wheel


From News USA
Americans are living longer
than before. If you're over 65,
you are part of the fastest-
growing population in the
U.S., thanks to today's ad-
vanced medicine and healthier,
active lifestyles.
If seniors can be. found
swimming, jogging and golfing,'
then who's to say when they
become too old to get behind
the wheel?
By 2020, there will be
more than 40 million licensed
drivers age 65 and older, ac-
cording to AAA. Although
they are more likely to wear,
their seatbelts, less likely to
drink and drive, and less likely
to speed, senior drivers are
more likely to be seriously in-
jured in a car crash.
Seniors have the second-
highest crash death rate per
mile next to teenagers, and are
at the highest risk for intersec-
tion crashes. They also are

more likely to injure them-
selves than others in a crash.
In a recent AAA survey of
more than 1,000 seniors,
nearly 90 percent said they
drive themselves to get around
on a daily basis. And next to fi-
nancial security and the cost of
health care, seniors are most.


concerned about thdir ability
to get around in the future.
This concern, and the ap-
prehension many families share
over whether older loved ones
should drive, has prompted
AAA to make efforts to help
seniors improve driver safety.
The automobile association
has developed "Roadwise Re-
view: A Tool to Help Seniors
Drive Safely Longer," a com-
puter-based screening tool that
enables older drivers to test
their 'cognitive, physical and
visual abilities in the privacy
of their own homes.
The tool helps identify
'physiological changes that
could affect driving and prob-
lem areas correlated with crash
risk. For instance, it tests
flexibility, the ability to see in
low light and to scan across a
field of view, all functional
abilities critical for 'safe driv-
ing. "Roadwise Review" also of-
fers practical suggestions for
improvement.
The measures in, AAA
Roadwise Review were scien-
tifically validated in a study of
crash risk in nearly 1,000 sen-
iors.
For more information, con-
tact your local AAA club or
visit www.aaapublicaffairs.com.

and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) officers and
members of the Mississippi Ma-
rine Patrol and the Florida Na-
tional Guard.
According to FWC Officer
Andy Maltais from the Jackson-
ville Field Office, the rescue in-
volved a 500-pound storm victim,
a National Guard "deuce-and-a-
half" (a 2.5-ton truck) and lots of
manpower.
"We began our water patrol
with the Mississippi Marine Pa-
trol at about 9 a.m., going
through bayous and choked-off
waterways. We saw a flare, but
because of the conditions, we
couldn't reach the people who
had fired it off," Maltais said.
"There was a bulldozer clear-
ing the road in the area and we
managed to get up to the loca-
tion by sighting smoke from a
small fire. When we got there,
we found two men on an in-shore
shrimp boat back up in a small
canal," he said.
Officers found the boat in
Bratts Bayou off the Jordan
River near Henderson Point.
This bayou is between Gulfport,
Miss., and Bay St. Louis, La.
Other FWC officers on the
scene were Officers Tony Wright,
Craig Maguire, Brad Givens and
Investigator Paul Graham, all
from the Jacksonville Field Of-
fice.
"George Reed was in the boat.
He weighed about 500 pounds
and was not ambulatory. He was
in bad shape. He was conscious
and extremely glad to see us,"


Maltais said. "The big problem
we faced was how to get him to a
medical facility."
Emergency services had
reached the area but were un-
able to transport Reed.
"Our helicopter flew over but
also was unable to rescue the
man," Maltais said. "We ended
up getting a deuce-and-a-half
from the Florida National Guard
back there. We constructed a lit-
ter from a door and some four-
by-four lumber. We maneuvered
Mr. Reed onto the litter and got
him into the truck. He was then
transported to a hospital."
Maltais said a younger man
who was with Reed (officers did
not get his name), was the one
who had fired off the flare.
"These two men had banded
together, found this shrimp boat
and rode out the storm," Maltais
said. "The younger man had lost
his wife and son and wanted
help trying to locate them. We
walked through the destroyed
subdivision, looking for other
survivors. We didn't find his
family, but we did locate the
owner of the shrimp boat who
was amazed his boat and these
two men had made it through
the storm."
According to Maltais, the dev-
astation of the area is unbeliev-
able.
"We were in a subdivision of
about 100 houses. There was
nothing left. Three-story houses
have been reduced to sticks," he
said. "The storm surge here
must have been tremendous.
You can see where the bark was
blasted off the trees from the


surge. I can't begin to describe
the scene or the smell. There are
carcasses of dead fish and other
animals littering the area.
There's nothing left."
Maltais told of another sur-
vival story.
"There was a group of four
Vietnamese shrimpers who
wanted to save their boat and
decided to ride out the storm in
it. It got so bad that they ended
up climbing a 90-foot pine tree
and lashing themselves at about
60 feet. They managed to ride
out the storm," Maltais said. "I
was amazed. I saw the rope
burns on their bodies and then
saw the tree. It looked like an
apple core. If the wind had been
much more fierce, they wouldn't
have made it."
Maltais said the shrimp boat
made it through the storm also.
Living conditions for FWC's
109 officers, and other personnel
in the rescue operation have
been described as "primitive."
Maltais laughed, saying,
"That's putting it in a good light.
We're living out of our trucks.
However, our morale is great. In
fact, my squad has just volun-
teered to stay here for another
week."
The squad consists of Lt. Gary
Klein, officers Harold Barry,
Givens, Maltais, Wright, Ma-
guire and Graham. Capt. John
Burton, from the Crystal River
Field Office, is leading the detail.
"I worked the detail in Pensa-
cola after Hurricane Ivan last
year. But this is even worse,"
Maltais said. "I'm just glad to be
here to be able to help out."

Polk County Exploring
Northwest Water Project 'WorksiS33-48833


Polk County is exploring for
new water resources under a co-
operative project with the South-
west Florida Water Management
District.
Progress on a new test well
was delayed due to site procure-
ment challenges.
On Aug. 24, Polk County com-
missioners approved a purchase
and sale agreement with Greater
Homes, Inc./Holly Hills Corpora-
tion for the acquisition of a five-
acre site.
The property is five miles
north of the intersection of Inter-
state 4 and U.S. Hwy. 27 and
will cost $236,480.50.
In addition to providing an
area for the drilling of a 2,450-
foot deep test well into the lower
Floridian aquifer, this site is
planned for a complete water
.... production unit with treatment,
Storage and pumping facilities.
S_ Yields from this aquifer are
. .. predicted as high as nine million
gallons per day. If this full po-
.tential is realized, this project
will help meet the future water
S_ needs of the northeast service
area while simultaneously im-
^ proving service reliability and
quality. *
.. .- The quality of this lower aqui-
.. fer is uncertain, necessitating re-
-o -. served optimism until the drill-
ing, yield and testing is com-
pleted.
.. High quality will enable use
S of the water for potable needs;
*. whereas, lower quality may ne-
S- cessitate utilization as reuse (ir-
rigation) water.
A budget of $1.3 million has
been reserved for this project,
and the Southwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District has
awarded a $412,500 grant in aid
for the test well project.
Bids are being solicited for the
test well construction with an
anticipated start date in Oct. 12.
S Drilling, development and
testing of the well is predicted
for completion by June 2006.
Once this analysis phase of
the project is completed, the cost
i of and schedule for the water
treatment, storage and pumping
Fgig as Ifacilities will be finalized.


The growing demand for wa-
ter service in the Northwest
Service Area warrants ongoing
efforts to secure additional sup-
ply sources, a SWFWMD spokes-
man said.
The Northeast Service Area
contains 18,490 water customers
and 819 reuse customers. Aver-
age daily usages are 6.5 million


gallons of potable water and 0.5
million gallons of reuse water
per day.
Reuse delivers seven percent
of the area's total water' needs
and is an ever-growing conserva-
tion means. Reuse water is ob-
tained by treating and disinfect-
ing wastewater.

UF Experts Help


GAINESVILLE To help
Florida schoolchildren under-
stand farming and.its impact on
their lives, University of Flor-
ida experts are contributing to
a statewide program that en-
ables teachers to incorporate
agricultural education in a va-
riety of courses.
Florida Agriculture in the
Classroom, or FAITC, offers
free or nominally priced materi-
als ,suitable for students from
pre-K to through grade 12 to
public and private school
teachers, said Lisa Gaskalla,
executive director of the pro-
gram. Although the program is
housed at UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences, or UF/IFAS, it is an in-
dependent organization funded
by sales of the agriculture spe-
cialty license plate, and sup-
ported by UF/IFAS, Florida ag-
riculture industry organiza-
tions and the Florida Depart-
merit of Agriculturc arid Con-
sumer Services.
"Many children think food
comes from the grocery store,"
Gaskalla said. "Farming may be
in a family's background, but
it's generally two or more gen-
:erations back. For us, the chal-
lenge is to make agriculture
'relevant to these kids, and pro-
vide information in a form
that's practical for teachers to
.use."
FAITC offers an array of
'grade-specific lesson plans that
'use agricultural topics to teach
language arts, math, science
and social studies lessons, she
said. A typical example gives
students citrus juice produc-
tion data and teaches them

2005 BHS IB Graduates Won


$2.7 Million in Scholarships


The 51 graduates from the In-
ternational Baccalaureate pro-
gram at Bartow High School last
May earned $538,000 for the
Polk County school system in bo-
nuses paid to the county by the
State Dept. of Education for
their high academic perform-
ance, and $2,715,000 in, individ-
ual scholarships.
A few days ago, an IB gradu-
ate at Florida State University
was notified that he has ex-
empted 62 hours of academic
credit, allowing him to enroll as
a junior.
Dr. Ed Vetter, principal of the
IB program, told the Bartow Ro-
tary Club about the history of IB
and the operation of the program
at BHS.
The International Baccalaure-
ate program was established in
1966 in Switzerland with the
creation of the Geneva Interna-
tional School for children of dip-
lomats from many nations. The
first IB school in the United
States was the U.N. Interna-
tional School in New York City,
established in 1974.
The first IB school in Florida
opened in St. Petersburg in
1986, and the IB program at
BHS was established in 1996.
There are now more than
1,200 IB schools around the
world, and more than 40 in Flor-
ida.
Vetter described IB as "a
model of curricular rigor, rele-
vance, and results."
It offers a "world class, stan-
dardized curriculum." The same


final exams are given in all coun-
tries of the world, different only
in the language in which they
are offered.
Finals are graded by outside
examiners often IB faculty in
other countries and not by the
students' own teachers. Final
grades are determined 75 per-
cent from those grades, and only
25 percent by the local faculty.
Students study six areas of
knowledge:
Language A (their own lan-
guage).
Language B (a foreign lan-
guage; French and Spanish are
offered in the BHS program).
History.
Sciences.
Mathematics.
Psychology or the arts.
Students also are required to
study theory of knowledge, to
complete 150 "creative, action
and service" hours, and to write
a 4,000-word essay.
In addition to a regular high
school diploma, students who
pass their final exams in all six
areas and successfully complete
the other three requirements re-


ceive an IB diploma. This is ac-
cepted for about one academic
year of credit in Florida's state
university system.
IB students can choose from a
large offering of advanced place-
ment (AP) courses, which further
increase their chances of ex-
empting college course work.
In the 2005 graduating class,
90 percent of the students re-
ceived an IB diploma.
IB students at BHS lead, the
state in FCAT stores and are in
the top four percent of students
in the nation in AP testing.
Two teachers at BHS were
recognized as having the best AP
courses in the world in the past
year.
Vetter said that strong sup-
port from the school board office
makes it possible for BHS to of-
fer far more AP courses than
most IB schools the size of
Polk's.
He noted that another IB
school is being established in
Haines City. It will become IB
East, and the BHS program will
become IB West.

.STUDENTS AT STEPHENS Elementary
School in Bartow, along with secretaries Shirley
Bazemore and Tanya Peavey, proudly show off
their Hurricane Katrina relief T-shirts. The shirts
were printed by Derons Corporate Apparel in
Winter Haven, at his cost, and are being sold at
the school for $5 each. Money raised from the T-
shirt sales will go to purchase backpacks to be
sent to Keith Elementary School in Texas, where
many students displaced by the hurricane are ex-
pected to enroll, Ms. Peavey said. Keith Elemen-
tary also is holding a T-shirt drive, and will use
the proceeds to buy Wal-Mart gift cards for the


students. Bartow High School and Bartow Ele-
mentary Academy have gotten involved in the
project, as well, Ms. Peavey said. The first batch
of shirts was printed Friday, and Stephens kicked
off their fundraiser Tuesday. They were nearly
sold out of the shirts by the end of the school day,
she said. Other schools wishing to participate in
the relief effort are welcome to order shirts
through Stephens. The drive will be held "as long
as there is a need," Ms. Peavey said. It will proba-

Robertson-Burnett help their daughter, Pippa, snip
the ribbon with giant, golden scissors. Friends,
neighbors and inn guests joined Chamber members


at the occasion. George is originally from Scotland
and Carole from England, so Pippa could be consid-

ity-owned communications tech company in the Southeast. REI chose
to remain in West Bartow to help improve that area, and Burgess
hoped that the city government would remember them when it came
time to determine the location of development projects. (Staff photo

Fort Meade Future Farmers

supplies for Gulf Coast victims
Aug. 29-31.
Fort Meade FFA chapters re-
ceived notice Monday, Aug. 29,
that the Polk County FFA Fed-
eration was asking all FFA chap-
ters in the county to collect hur-
ricane relief supplies to be
hauled via a donated semi truck
to affected areas. The truck left
Saturday, Sept. 3.
The chapter employed the as-
sistance of the First Baptist
Church and their phone tree to
get the word out to church mem-
bers in the hope that they would
contribute to this cause.
"The phone tree message went
out Monday evening so I dropped
by the church Tuesday morning
to see if I needed to set up collec-
.tion bins," Senior FFA Advisor


Nora McLeod said. "I was pleas-
antly surprised to see that bins
would be sorely inadequate. The
boxes of diapers, baby formula,
water, and canned food had al-
ready been dropped off line a
wall in the church's social hall.
The response was overwhelm-
ing," .
Between the supplies the
church collected, the supplies
collected from the school and the
supplies collected at both the
Senior and Middle FFA Chapter
meetings the local FFA chapters
were able to deliver their live-
stock trailer full of hurricane
supplies.
On Thursday and Friday all
Polk County FFA Chapters de-
livered their collected supplies to

grounds to be loaded on the semi
truck.

By ROGER CAMPBELL
I met him at the end of a serv-
ice in a rural New York church.
His name escapes me, but the
question he asked has been un-
forgettable.
Let me explain.
The first meeting of a planned
week-long conference in this sce-
nic area was well attended. At
its conclusion, I learned that
many of the people who had
come to the service had been in-
vited by one man, a new convert,
who had turned into a one man
church growth dynamo.
Faith had so changed this
man's life that he wanted every-
one to know about it and share
in his newfound joy.
This moved him to find ways
to reach out to friends and
neighbors, telling them of the
discovery he had made and invit-
ing them to his church. .
When his prospects didn't
have transportation to respond
to his invitation, he provided it.
He was a pastor's dream, a natu-
ral born pew-packer.
But something was bothering
him, and before the week ended,
he raised the question I'll never
forget.
"What can you tell me," he
asked, "to keep me from becom-
ing like them?"
I wasn't sure what this ques-
tioner meant so asked him to
elaborate.
He explained that he had
great respect for the people in
his church, admiring their faith-
fulness in attendance and in ful-
filling their various offices that
made the church operate so effi-
ciently.
But he recognized that these
seasoned people of faith had


somehow lost something along
the way that he possessed a
compassion for others that moti-
vated him to tell them of God's
love and how to respond to it.
The answer to this new con-
vert's question rests in remem-
bering the simplicity of the good
news we're commissioned to
share (Matthew 28:18-20).
Once we complicate the mes-
sage, we're afraid to get involved
in sharing it, thinking this must
be left to ministers or others we
see as more qualified than the
rest of us, forgetting our Lord
called untrained fishermen to be-
come the first evangelists and to
plant churches in the world.
In order to avoid being "like
them," we'll have to become
more interested in people than
programs, caring for every per-
son we meet regardless of status,
success, or standing in the com-
munity.
We'll also need to take time
out of our busy schedules to talk
to others about their personal
problems and needs, showing
compassion continually.
Once I was irritated by calls
from telemarketers, who I re-
sentedbecause they interrupted
my schedule and often called
when I thought I had more im-
portant things to' do than spend
time talking to them.
Then I began to see each of
these calls as an opportunity to
talk to a person about his or her
needs and explain that God is in-
terested in every obstacle we
face.
Since my attitude has
changed, telemarketers tell me
their problems and often invite
me to send books or other faith
building materials to help them
understand how important they

me expressing their appreciation
for my concern and help when
they've been going through
tough times.
I'm indebted to a new convert
and his unforgettable question
because it reminds me that shar-
ing my faith is more important
than going through religious rou-
tines.
And if you allow his question
to keep you from becoming "like
them," you'll be indebted to him,
too.

God works in moments.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson


When was the last time you surprised a friend or fam-
ily member with something out of the ordinary? Giving
someone flowers for no special reason is always a wel-
come surprise. And, surprising someone doesn't have to
cost a cent. Flowers picked from a field can be just as nice
as the ones delivered by a florist. Calling or writing some-
one you haven't been in touch with in a long time is
another low-cost way to pleasantly surprise someone. In
these times of electronic mail and instant messaging, an
old-fashioned letter delivered by the mailman can be a
wonderful surprise. Baking cookies and bringing them to
work to share with, co-workers is not only a nice surprise,
but also a special way to keep on good terms with those
.at work. Inviting someone to dinner who wouldn't other-
wise expect it is another good way to surprise someone.
And perhaps, the ones who would be most surprised by
an act of kindness are not our friends or family, but our
enemies.

Love your enemies, do good to those who)
hate you. I

By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER

Have you ever noticed that
when you are on vacation time
goes by rapidly?
According to my calculations
(and I'm the first to admit I
didn't do well in calculus), the
average minute during vacation
time is less than 20 seconds.
This is one reason time goes
by so quickly on vacation.
The other reason, as everyone
knows, is that during a vacation
week there are no days begin-
ning with the letter T.
Now you know why your vaca-
tion went by so quickly this sum-
mer. There are always reasons if
you are willing to dig hard
enough.
Now, if this is true, the ques-
tion plaguing my mind is: Where
does all that time go?
Have you ever noticed that
when you are in a hurry to go
somewhere it usually takes twice
as long to get there?
It does not matter what time
of day it is or which day it is, for
that matter, for when you are
running a tad late for some ap-
pointment across town, Old Fa-
ther Time insists that you go
through an intricate obstacle
course. It is his way of having a
little fun. After all, the old boy
needs some kind of diversion.
For example, if I am leisurely
driving across town with plenty
of time on my hands, I never hit
a red light. Every traffic light is
green, and there have been
times when I have arrived at my
destination 10 minutes before I
left.
On the other hand, if I am in


Two guest speakers will help
First Baptist Church of Bartow
"Renew the Vision," at revival
services celebrating 130 years of
ministry at the church.
Dr. Tommy Green, senior pas-
tor of First Baptist Church in
Brandon, will lead services
Wednesday through Sunday,
Sept. 14-18 at 7 p.m. Dr. Ben
Bates, a retired pastor from Ar-
kansas, will preach at Sunday
morning services on Sept. 18, at
8:15 and 11 a.m. The early serv-
ice is contemporary and the 11
o'clock service is traditional/
blended.
Dr. Green and his wife, Karen
Ann, have three sons and a
daughter-in-law. He received is
master of divinity and doctor of
theology from New Orleans Bap-
tist Theological Seminary, and
his bachelor of arts in religion
from Samford University in Ala-
bama.
A past president of the Flor-
ida Baptist Convention, he is
past vice-chairman and cur-
rently on the board of trustees of
Southern Baptist Theological
Seminary: Dr. Green also serves
on the state board of missions of
the Florida Baptist Convention.
He has served two terms as
president of that board.
Dr. Bates responded to the
call to full-time ministry in 1949.
He received' his bachelor's and
master's degrees in theology
from California Baptist Theologi-
cal Seminary and was awarded
an honorary doctorate by Pacific
Bible College.
His first pastorate was the
, First Southern Baptist Church
of Pasadena, *Calif. He has
served as state evangelist for the
Southern Baptist Convention of
California and as evangelist for
Youth for Christ.
Now retired from the pastor-
ate, Dr. Bates is active in reviv-
als and as a supply pastor, and
serves as a chaplain with the
Polk County Sheriffs Office. He
lives in Winter Haven with his
wife. Their son is a pastor in
Winter Park and their son-in-
law is a pastor in Winter Haven.
A covered dish dinner in the


a hurry and running just the
slightest bit late, this is immedi-
ately brought to the attention' of
Old Father Time.
He rubs his hands with glee
and begins his work. Immedi-
ately, every traffic light in town
is on the alert for my arrival.
Their instruction from Father
Time is quite simple: "When you
see Reverend Snyder coming,
turn red."
Sometimes all the attention
Father Time gives me embar-
rasses me. This is his way of us-
ing up all the time I lost during
my vacation.
Then there is the train on
17th Street. I can travel this
street for weeks and never see
that train. There have been
times when I have wondered if
the train has ceased running.
Then I am in a hurry and eve-
rything changes. It has yet to
fail me. When running late, the
train always runs slow and, in
my honor, the train reserves for
me the longest and slowest train.
Perhaps the worse time trick
Old Father Time plays on me is
at the checkout counter. The
checkout personnel are espe-
cially trained by Father Time for
his enjoyment.
In one week alone, I found 17
days I lost during my vacation in
1978, just at a checkout counter.
Last week, my wife and I
were in a hurry to some appoint-
ment. It really does not matter
what the appointment was, we
never really got there, thanks to
Old Father Time.
On the way to this alleged ap-
pointment, I said something
quite foolish to my wife. (What


ministry center will follow the 11
a.m. service. Sunday school for
all age groups from children to
adult will begin at 9:30 a.m.
Church members will be working
for high attendance in Sunday
school that day.
Awana children's ministry
will be held from 5:45 to 7:15
p.m. Sunday with Bible memory,
recreation and other activities.
Youth ministry is at 6 p.m. on
Wednesday for grades seven
and up.
First Baptist of Bartow is
celebrating 130 years of minis-
try, but the earliest record book
actually notes the first organiza-
tional meeting in 1873. Several
townspeople looking for a church
home found Jeremiah M. Hay-
man, a bit of a church "traveling
salesman," who organized con-
gregations all over Central Flor-
ida.
Born in December of 1822,
near Savannah, Hayman moved
to Florida at the age of 16 with
his family.
A veteran of the Seminole
Wars, he was baptized in Lake
Lindsey on June 7, 1884. Even-
tually taking up. as church clerk
and later ordained a deacon,
Hayman promised if God would
provide a good wife, he would be-
gin preaching.
Hayman married Martha J.
Carleton in 1846, but it was af-
ter the death of the couple's first
two children that Hayman re-
membered his promise and be-
gan to preach. He delivered his
first sermon on June 18, 1851, in
Hillsborough County.
In the next few years, he
served as a missionary, a justice
of the peace, and as one of 17
delegates who participated in
the organization of the Florida
Baptist State Convention in
Madison.
In 1854, Hayman had assisted
in the organization of the Peace
River Valley's first church,
"Peas" or, later, Peace Creek
Baptist Church. Additionally,
Hayman founded churches in
Gillette and the First Baptist
Church of Lakeland. In 1855, the
Seminole Indians became hes-


husband hasn't?)
"Honey," I said as innocently
as any husband can, "I need to
stop at the grocery store for
something."
Right then, a huge red light
went off to alert Father Time of
my intention.
That wasn't enough. I also
told her, as I jumped out of the
car, "This will only take a min-
ute."
With that, I bounded into the
store.
This put Old Father Time into
hysterics. He lives for this kind
of situation.
When I got in the store, I
knew exactly where the item
was that I needed. Voila -
somehow, the management of
the store had a premonition that
I would be coming in this day
and that I would be in a hurry.
He did the only thing he could
do in that situation. He com-
pletely rearranged the store -
all in my honor.
Now, not only was I in a
hurry, but also I could not find
the product I was after.
If I wasn't a man, I could ask
for directions.
My wife, tired of waiting in
the car, came in and found the
item for me. Now all I needed to
do was get it through the check-
out.
Have you ever noticed that no
matter what line you get in, it is
always the slowest?
Even if I am the only one in
the checkout, I have no better
luck. Usually in that situation, I
get the trainee on her first day
working all alone.
Am I getting harder of hear-


tile, and Hayman moved 'his
family to Tampa, where he
helped organize the First Baptist
Church of Tampa.
In 1873, Hayman met with
Daniel Stanford, William B.
Varn, Benjamin Blount, John
Blount, E.A. Griffin, M.A.C.
Blount, Martha Hayman, Ellen
S. Varn and Elizabeth Tyre "in
the academy at Bartow in Polk
County, Florida, and after read-
ing a portion of Scripture, and
engaging in prayer," the group
signed a covenant and agreed to
organize a church "designated as
Concord Church in the vicinity of
Bartow ." John Blount wrote
in the historical record.
By 1885, the church was pas-
tored by four men on a rotating
basis. Elder W.E. Bostic, Rev.
A.F. Randall and J.M. Hayman
preached each month.
In 1886, the church had 86
members, was led by W.B. Dye
and a choir was first formed.
Since 1883, the church had
been meeting in a small church
house and in 1886, a parsonage
was built..
In 1887, the church was re-
named Bartow Baptist Church.
On Aug. 1, 1894, the paper re-
ported the Baptist church build-
ing had been moved and that a
new building would be started
within the next 30 days. By
1897, the congregation was con-
sidering building again. On July
18, 1900, the paper reported on
the July 11 dedication ceremony.
While the congregation grew
in the small church, eventually
it became clear with Florida's
land boom, a bigger building
would be needed. In 1920, a
building committee was formed
and recommended a new church
building be built at a cost of
around $40,000.
By 1925, a four-story,
$100,000, 71 multi-purpose room
building was erected in yellow
brick on Church Street. It is in
this building the church re-
mains, although the interior is
quite different now, and a new
ministry center opened in March
2002.

ing or are young people, espe-
cially young women, speaking a
different language? It took me 10
minutes to realize that the
young trainee was merely say-
ing, "Hello, how are you?"
Of course, I wanted to pay for
my purchase with a check. It
was then that Old Father Time
roared with devilish delight.
To use a check at many places
requires 16 independent fbrms of
identification and a note irom
your mother. At the time, I only
had 15.
By the time my wife and I got
to our car, it was too late for our
important appointment.
Father Time won another one.
Time is important and often
we are guilty of wasting it. The
biggest area where people waste
time is regarding their relation-
ship with God.
The Apostle Paul warned of
this in his letter to the Romans.
"And that, knowing the time,
that now it is high. tirnme to awake
out of sleep: for now is our salva-
tion nearer than when we be-
lieved." (Romans 13:11 KJV).


Rev. James L. Snyder is pas-
tor of the Family of God Fellow-
ship located at 1471 Pine Road
in Silver Springs Shores. He
lives with his wifk, Martha, in
Silver Springs Shores, and can
be contacted by e-mail at
jamessnyder2@att.net. Reverend
Snyder is the host of the weekly
radio program, Sunday Joy,
heard at 9:30 a.m. on WOCA,

Seeds fronC

the Sower

By Michael A. Guido


There's a clock in a city in Ar-
gentina that keeps the correct
time.
The residents set their
watches by it.
Printed above each face of
that four-sided clock is the re-
minder: "This is the hour to do
good."
He was going to do good to-
morrow. None would be braver,
nor kinder, than he tomorrow.
A friend who was troubled
and weary, he knew, would be
glad for a lift, and needed it, too.
On him he would call, and see
what he could do tomorrow.
But tomorrow never came.
Remember the sign on that
clock: "This is the hour to do
good."

A man came to a store.
He saw a leopard skin that
had been made into a coat.
He looked at it and said, "Ole
cat, you were better off before
you were worth so much."
I've seen many cats like that,
haven't you?
Man may make money, but
money never made a man.
Money never made a man
happy or holy, nor will it. There's
nothing in its nature to produce
happiness here or heaven hereaf-
ter.
Life's poorest investment is
gaining money and losing your
soul.
Our Lord asked, "What shall
it profit a man, if he shall gain
the whole world, and lose his
own soul?"

After stopping for gas in
Montgomery, Ala., a man drove
about, five hours -- without his
wife.
He hadn't noticed her ab-
sence.
He called her, then he went
back to where he left her, and
found her.
Can it be that you, too, have
forgotten Someone the Lord?
Turn back to where you left
Him, and you will' find Him
there. He is waiting by the bed-
side where you used to kneel in
prayer.
You are older, sorer, broken.
You are tired of self, that's true.
But return to where you left
Him. He is waiting for you.

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons chopped water chestnuts, (option-
al)
12 wonton wrappers, (3-1/2-inch square)
3 teaspoons Wesson Pure Vegetable Oil
Drain liquid from soup into small saucepan;

spoon of the rice mixture onto center of each won-
ton wrapper.

gle; sealing edges to completely enclose filling.

Add half of the wontons; cook 2 minutes on each
