Escape Bid Short For Two Inmates


By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor


An inmate who risked jump-
ing out of a prison bus going 50
miles per hour is now in serious
condition at Lakeland Regional
Medical Center, and another
inmate who slipped away after
the bus stopped was caught with-
in 30 minutes Friday.
The bus, carrying 42 inmates,
was taking them from court in
Bartow back to the South County
Jail in Frostproof. Around 3:30
p.m., the bus was heading south
on U.S. Highway 17, near
Homeland, about 50 miles per
hour, when the driver, a deten-
tion transport deputy, heard a
noise.
Looking back, he saw a flash
of orange and the back window
kicked out, Polk County Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman Carrie
Rodgers said. He turned the bus
around, and found Michael


Robert Gordon, 30, lying in the
road.
The driver of a car saw the
incident and fortunately missed
hitting the inmate.
It wasn't until a head count
was taken that deputies discov-
ered that Gary Allen Mizell, 34,
had taken off, as well.
Prisoners are handcuffed to
other prisoners, but somehow
Gordon and Mizell slipped out of
their cuffs, Mrs. Rodgers said.
Mizell apparently hitched a
ride to his old apartment at 505
South Broadway, where he called
a family member, Mrs. Rodgers
said. When deputies arrived,
Mizell had already taken off, but
a deputy familiar with Mizell's
background led them to 1055
Mizell Road, where the inmate
was caught about 30 minutes
after his escape.
Gordon was being held on a
warrant from South Carolina,
and also has Polk County


charges of escape and giving a
false name to law enforcement
officers.
Mizell was booked in May 3 on
162 charges, including dealing in


Gary Allen Mizell


stolen property, probation viola-
tion and criminal use of personal
identification of another person.
He now faces an escape charge,
as well.

KYLE ROGERS looks at the area where
Hurricane Katrina struck. "It looks like a big, big
dinosaur hit it," the almost-7-year-old said. Instead


of presents for himself on his birthday, he is asking
for donations to the American Red Cross for hurri-
cane victims. (Staff photo)


All Kyle Wants for His Birthday

Are Donations to Red Cross


By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor

One young boy has chosen to
celebrate his birthday by giving
presents to Hurricane Katrina's
victims.
Kyle Rogers is asking for dona-
tions to. the American Red Cross
to celebrate his seventh birthday.
The Lakeland boy is having a
fundraising birthday party on
Saturday, Sept. 24, at 10 a.m., at
Lake Bonny Park.


In lieu of presents he wants
people to give money to help the
Red Cross bring disaster relief to
those who have suffered from
Katrina.
He has already raised $305,
but he's not stopping there. In
fact, he and his great-grandmoth-
er, Hettie Whatley of Bartow,
have a little competition going
with Kyle's mother, Jessica
Rogers, who raised money for
breast cancer last year.
Mrs. Whatley is no stranger to
relief efforts. She went to


Mississippi after Hurricane
Camille in 1969, and two weeks
ago received her 40-year pin from
the Red Cross.
She said she will pick up dona-
tions "from $1 to $1,000" for those
who can't deliver it. She can be
reached at 533-2259. Donations
also may be dropped in a donation
can at The Democrat office, 190
South Florida Ave., Bartow.
Checks may be made to
American Red Cross with a nota-
tion for the Hurricane Katrina
recovery effort.

After seven hours of debate
and two compromises, Polk
County commissioners approved
a tax package that will have resi-
dents paying more, but not as
much more as originally pro-
posed.
Commissioncrs voted four-to-
one about 1 a.m.. Friday to raise
property taxes for all taxpayers to
8.727 mills, plus an -additional
three-fourths of a mill for proper-
ty in unincorporated areas, an
increase of 24 percent over last
year's rate.


The one-mill countywide
increase is designated for trans-
portation and road projects.
Commissioners say they need
the increase to pay for an "infra-
structure funding gap," due to
growth in the county.
The commission voted to
impose a Municipal Services
Taxing Unit levy on unincorporat-
ed area residents for parks and
for libraries. The park rate is one-
half mill and the library tax is
one-quarter mill. MSTUs are cre-
ated to pay for municipal-type
services in unincorporated areas.
Residents of municipalities don't
pay the MSTU taxes, because


Hometown Heroes


Honored Friday


AT THE END of the "Salute to Hometown
Heroes" event, all the veterans and others in service
were given patriotic Mosaic- caps, and got to meet


and shake the hands of Congressman Adam
Putnam, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, and Joe
Hall. (Staff photos by Brett Lowe)


By JENNIFER STARLING
Staff Writer

Our own "hometown heroes"
were honored during Mosaic's
"Salute to Hometown Heroes"
event Friday morning.
Speakers at the event were
Congressman Adam Putnam,
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd,
and Joe Hall, an ex-Iranian
hostage.
The annual event has tradi-
tionally centered around remem-
bering those who died in the ter-
rorist attacks of Sept. 11, and
honoring those who have fought
to keep us safe. .
"It was a remarkable day for
everyone," Putnam said, speak-
ing of his experience of accompa-
nying President Bush on that
fateful day. "Everyone remem-
bers where they were that day."
"We don't ever forget what
happened, but what we take
away the spirit that is
America that those 19 hijack-
ers didn't understand," he said.
The victims of Hurricane
Katrina, and the men and women
who have stepped up to help
them, also were on everyone's
minds this year.
All too often, Hall said during
his keynote speech, these heroes


never really get the respect and
appreciation they deserve.
"Your rewards are found in
your hearts," he said.
Hall was one of 71 American
Embassy diplomats seized by
militant followers of the
Ayatollah Khomeini on Nov. 4,
1979. He. was released on Jan.
20, 1981, after 444 days of cap-
tivity.
But, he said, he was not there
to speak as a former hostage.
"I am here to speak as some-
one who served," he said.
And during his speech, he hon-
ored others who have served as
well, calling each member of the
military, police and fire depart-
ments, and emergency medical
teams at the event to stand for
applause.
The event also included the
presentation of colors by
Veterans of Foreign Wars, the
singing of patriotic songs, and
the presentation of a flag to
Mosaic employee Billy Davis and
his grandson, Christian Whitney,
whose father is currently fighting
overseas.
"Who is your hero?" Mosaic
Public Relations Manager Debbie
Burdett asked the audience.
"Today, I assure you, you are sit-
ting beside someone's hero."


their city taxes already pay for
those services within the city lim-
its.
Both the MSTU taxes are new,
and were lowered from the origi-
nally proposed rates of three-
fourths of a mill for parks and
recreation and a half-mill for
libraries.
At the public hearing, resi-
dents filled the commission
boardroom and overflowed out
into the lobby, where the meeting
was shown on television.
Some carried signs urging "Ax
the Tax," but Thursday's night's
meeting lacked the poems and
teabag demonstrations that
marked an earlier budget season.
Most of the speakers and the
large audience were polite and
respectful, but twice Commission
Chm. Jack Myers threatened to
clear the room.
While most speakers were
against all of the taxes, several
commended the "courage" of the
commission.
"Thank you for standing up
and doing what the past commis-
sion failed to do," Lakeland resi-
dent Joan Verret said. "I didn't
vote for you, but I will next time."
"There's a saying that there is
no such thing as a free lunch, but
we've had a free lunch for a long
time on property taxes in this
county," John McArthur said.
"The gap is well documented, and
now it's time to play catch up."


Most speakers, however,
opposed the taxes, accusing com-
missioners of irresponsibility and
of lying during their campaigns.
"We depend on our elected offi-
cials to 'manage the county's
money the way we manage our
households," Babson Park-,resi-
dent Edwin Weaver said. "The
people of Polk County are not a
piggy bank to be raided."
Other residents echoed the
sentiment.
"The greed of our elected offi-
cials is apparent," Auburndale
resident Alan Lane said. .
With residents suggesting
higher impact fees, user fees for
parks and libraries, a higher fine
for drivers who run red lights,
and better use of part-time
employees and volunteers,, com-
missioners were asked again and
again not to raise taxes.
Some speakers got :creative,
with one offering a dinner to any-
one willing to place a wager on
whether the taxes would be
passed.
"You all seem to forget that you
work for me. This is a formality,"
Jamie King said of the hearing.
"I'm embarrassed to have you on
my payroll, and offer a free steak
dinner to anyone who thinks this
tax won't pass."
Several soccer moms, dads,
coaches and players attended the

City To Oppose Garbage

At Cedar Trail Landfill


CHRISTIAN WHITNEY (fourth from left), and
his grandfather, Billy Davis, an employee at
Mosaic, were presented with a flag during Mosaic's
"Salute to Hometown Heroes" event on Friday
morning. Christian's father and Davis' son-in-law,


Sgt. John Whitney, is currently serving in
Afghanistan. Also pictured are Joe Hall (far left),
Congressman Adam Putnam, and Polk County
Sheriff Grady Judd.


Bartow city commissioner say
they will go on record at their
Sept. 19 meeting in opposition to
allowing the burying of "commer-
cial garbage" at the Cedar Trail
Landfill on E.F. Griffin Road.
Earlier this year, operators of
the construction and demolition
landfill told city commissioners
individually that they would
apply to the state for a permit to
bury "commercial garbage" at the
landfill. A settlement reached in
a federal court lawsuit bars land-
filling of "residential garbage,"


and Cedar Trail takes position
that the wording would allow
"commercial garbage."
As a C and D landfill, Cedar
Trail now accepts only construc-
tion and demolition debris and
yard trash.
The planning and zoning
board urged the commission to go
on record opposing the landfilling
of garbage, even though the city's
permission is not required.
The decision will be made by
the Florida Dept. of
Environmental Protection.

Pianist Returns to Lake Ridge Art Association Seeks

Wales Arts Center for Recital Entries for New Exhibition


Pianist Scott Watkins will of-
fer a solo recital on Friday, Sept.
16, at 8 p.m., at the Lake Wales
Arts Center, 1099 State Road 60
East.
Watkins' program will include
the Bach First Partita in B flat
major, and the Chopin Third Pi-
ano Sonata in B minor.
Opening his program will be a
rarely heard work by Romanian
composer Georges Enesco; his
Third Piano Sonata in D major,
composed in 1935. Enesco gained
popularity through his colorful
orchestral work, Romanian


Shakespeare

Fest Planned
University of Central Flori-
da's Education Department of
the Shakespeare Festival will
begin the new season with a
morning of interactive activities
for children and their families on
Saturday, Sept. 17, from 10 to
11:30 a.m.
Taking place at the Lowndes
Shakespeare Center, 812 East
Rollins Street, Loch Haven Park,
Orlando, the Festival's acting
teachers will start the event off
with a performance and comedic
reading of The Princess and the
Pea.
This 50-minute "radio-play-
style" reading will be followed by
a family acting game session,
and the morning will conclude
with backstage tours of the Fes-
tival.
There is no charge for the
event however, the Festival re-
quests that families call ahead to
reserve their places. For infor-
mation, call 1-407-447-1700, ext.
254.


Rhapsody No. 1.
Watkins' recital here is in ad-
vance of his return to New York
and a recital at Carnegie Hall's
Weill Recital Hall on Oct. 1.
"The Enesco sonata is a dy-
namic work," Watkins said.
"Opening the program with it
gives more traditional and recog-
nizable works by Bach and
Chopin a perspective not other-
wise noted. The contrast be-
tween the Enesco and the epic
romanticism of the Chopin So-
nata in B minor is unmistak-
able."
Watkins is no stranger to pro-
gramming less traditional works
in his recitals. His last appear-
ance at the hall included works
by Beethoven and Liszt, and an-
other unusual work, the Grand
Sonata by Peter Tchaikovsky.
"I believe that the piano is ca-
pable of speaking. in a language
beyond what is considered sim-
ply piano music. Therefore I
choose repertoire carefully, and
try to allow the piano to speak
its own unique language," Wat-
kins said.
"A unique feature of the pian-
ist's repertoire is the combina-
tion of three equal parts, instru-
ment, composer and interpreter.
All must join forces in the pur-
suit of a viable performance."
Tickets are $10.

Give Houses of Worship


Stormwater Tax Break


We believe Bartow city commission-
ers are correct to consider making an
exception for churches in assessing the
city's new stormwater utility fee.
It's too late for the coming year, but
the change could be made for future
years.
The stormwater tax called a fee,
which doesn't make it any more palat-
able to those who pay it is imposed
on all property, including property nor-
mally exempt from taxes. Chief among
these are churches and government
buildings.
The rationale is that the stormwater
tax covers the proportionate share of
rainfall that each structure sheds.
For simplicity, all single-family
homes are assessed at the same rate
($45), while other buildings are
assessed based on the amount of imper-
vious surface. A business with three
times as much building and paved
parking as a house pays three times as
much as a house. It is a reasonable basis
for computation.
And a school, jail or court house puts
just as much stormwater into the
drainage system as a store, office, or
industrial building ofcomparable size.
A number of- Bartowans have called
their city commissioners to urge ,that
churches be exempted, or at least given
a break. It is a reasonable request.
Governments collect money from
taxpayers, and can collect more by rais-.
ing taxes can and do.
Churches are supported by gifts from
their members, and cannot automati-

OUR READERS SAY


cally increase their revenues to meet
higher expenses. For the most part,
churches with large buildings and
parking lots are more prosperous than
churches with small buildings and
parking lots, but that's not always a
given.
Bartow already has a proud tradition
of giving churches a break. Churches
are charged residential rates not
commercial rates for utilities, and
are exempt from the public service tax
(previously, and more accurately, called
the utilities tax).
Why?
For the best of reasons: because it's
the right thing to do.
We suggest that the same rationale be
used on the stormwater tax: impose it
on churches, but at the residential rate.
Few churches would be hard-pressed
to pay $45 a year.
It is appropriate to extend to houses
of worship the same stormwater tax
rate paid by other houses.

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

Rehnquist: A Life Well Lived


Few of us had the opportunity
to know William Rehnquist, chief
justice of the United States
Supreme Court, during his life-
time, but we have gotten a little
insight into the man after his-
death.
History will record that when
he began his 33 years on the high-
est court in the land, he was
dubbed the "Lone Ranger" for his
conservative dissents from deci-
sions of a liberal-dominated
court. At the time of his death, he
had been chief justice for 20
years, leading a court with a far
more conservative consensus.
History also will record that he
was one of only two chief justices
in American history to preside
over the impeachment trial of a
President of the United States.
But it was the anecdotes told at
his two-hour funeral an event
that lasted longer than most oral
arguments before the Supreme
Court -- that give us a glimpse of
the personal side of the nation's
most powerful jurist.
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor
recalled that the chief justice


would wager on anything from
sports contests to the amount of
snow that would fall in the
court's courtyard.
"If you valued your money,
you would be careful about bet-
ting with the chief; he usually
won," she said.
His, she said, was a life well
lived.
In the final days of his life,
when asked in the hospital emer-
gency room who was his primary
care doctor, his labored response
was "My dentist."
One of his grandchildren
recalled that he counseled her,
when playing cards, to look at the
windows behind her opponents
and pick up reflections of the
cards they held.
During recesses in the
impeachment trial of President
Clinton, he played cards.
Whether his opponents had their
backs to a window has not been
revealed.
Though known as a stickler for
decorum in the courtroom, he is
reported to have made fun of his
predecessor for his pomposity


and micromanagement.

Many years ago, while consid-
ering endorsements of several
candidates for county and circuit
judge, I asked the late Jack
Edmund, arguably the best crim-
inal defense lawyer in Polk
County, for advice.
Almost any lawyer with the
required law degree and five
years of practice probably has
sufficient knowledge of the law
to become a good judge, he told
me. And with experience, he or
she probably will become a better
judge.
But temperament will only get
worse, he counseled. A lawyer
who is a little bit arrogant will
become more arrogant as a judge.
A pompous lawyer will become a
more pompous judge.
In legal circles, there's a name
for it: Robeitis.
From that day forward, I have
made it a point to explore the
issue of temperarrient, both in
interviewing candidates and in
making discreet inquiry into their
reputations with their peers. -


The majority of candidates
have asked me, if they were elect-
ed, to call their hand should I see
them developing a case of
Robeitis. I have agreed to do so,
and on a couple of occasions,
have made good on that commit-
ment. Diplomatically, of course.
As in: "Are you the same
Oliver Wendell Holmes (not his
real name) who asked me to tell
you if you started getting uppi-
ty?"
For the most part, neither the
lawyers who practice before them
nor their fellow judges will call
their hands on it. That is under-
standable, but unfortunate.
It is my impression that judges
in this circuit, by and large, seem
to be a little mellower than they
were in the past. Or perhaps it is I
who have mellowed.
It is nice to learn, in retrospect,
that Chief Justice Rehnquist was
a man who didn't get carried
away by the robe he wore with
distinction for 33 years.

OUR READERS SAY

Volunteers Help Disaster Preparedness


BARTOW The.- city of
Bartow has been pla'lguied by.sev-
eral chronic drainage problems
for as long as I can remember, so
I can understand, why the city
commissi6n'recently adopted an
ordinance .that created a
stormwater utility fee as a source
of ; additional revenue.
Presumably, the funds collected
from the new stormwater fee will
be earmarked to, fund the engi-
neering surveys, design, environ-
mental permitting, and construc-
tion work needed to correct these
troublesome problems.
As usual, there was little com-
ment from private citizens 'when
the commission considered the
recommendations put before
them by the city staff and engi-
neering consultants, and the new
ordinance passed without much
debate.'
Homeowners have received a
notice of proposed property taxes
and assessments'-rom the county
property appraiser that provided
notice that our November tax
bills will include an, assessment
by the city of Bartow in the
amount of $45 per Equivalent
Residential Unit (ERU).
The city used Geographical
Information Systems (GIS) tech-


nology, to determine how many
square feet of impervious surface
each of us has at our individual
home sites. They determined that
n .average, we each have about
2,500 square feet of roofs, drive-
ways, swimming pools, and side-
walks on our lots, so that became
:the basis for assessing how much
each individual homeowner
,.owes. All 'private residential
property owners are assessed at
one ERU ($45).
I contacted each commissioner
to register the following com-
plaints .about this new tax.
(Although it masquerades as a
"fee" it really is a tax.):
1. My chief complaint is the
assessment against places of wor-
ship and non-profit charitable.
organizations. Our churches
make valuable contributions to
the quality of life in our commu-
nity by providing "multi-pur-
pose" religious, cultural, and
educational facilities that are fre-
quently used by church members
and non-members alike.
I don't think there is a single
church in town that is the cause
of a drainage problem, yet my
own church is being billed
$1,192.50 for stormwater fees. We
have a new multi-purpose facility


that was used last year to tem-
porarily house volunteer workers
during the aftermath of the hurri-
canes. Undoubtedly it will be
used again at no cost to the tax-
payers during .similar emergen-
cies. We also provide space for
the Women's Care Center and
now have to pay this extra premi-
um for the privilege.
2. There are no provisions for
exemptions for the poorest
among us, and I daresay there are
many who cannot afford to pay
$45 per year for anything that
isn't essential such as food or
medicine.
3. In view of all the other tax
increases and the increased ener-
gy costs that are hitting us all at
once, I believe the new stormwa-
ter tax is about double what it
should be initially. (No matter
where it starts, it likely will go up
in the future).
If you share my concerns, I
urge you to contact each member
of the city commission. Please ask
them to provide exemptions for
churches, charitable institutions,
,.and homeowners whose incomes

Appoint Katrina Commission


SLAKELAND I feel that an
Independent Katrina
Commission must be appointed
to investigate the failures in pro-
viding assistance for people of
New Orleans and the Louisianna
and Mississippi 'Gulf Coast com-


munities. This commission must
be independent of government
leadership and control., The com'-
mittee must be provided free
access to materials and informa-
tion needed for their delibera-
tions.


This commission must pub-
lish reports and inform the public
of their findings. Perhaps this
will assist the Gulf Coast commu-
nities when another hurricane
hits.
PHYLLIS OLIN BIELANSKI


BARTOW We all had to
write at least one essay in school
about our activities during the
summer. While it has been a few
days since I studied reading' ,
writing and 'rithmetic," it still
seemed like a good time to let
folks know what a few of our
friends and family members were
up to in the month of July.
Students, teachers, Civil Air
Patrol members, veterans,
retirees, and many others took
time out from their summer vaca-
tions to help our emergency ser-
vice personnel prepare for major
disasters by participating in a
mass casualty drill down
Mulberry way. Talk about your
major Hollywood production.
Just like the. actors in a major
motion picture, volunteer victims
were given a variety of roles to
play, some without speaking
parts, and some with lines to
memorize about their medical
condition.
The scenario was that a bus
that had crashed at a soccer
game, resulting in mass casual-
ties. Many of the injuries were as
good or better than the ones you
see on the TV show "ER," thanks
to well-applied makeup and
moulage that resulted in incredi-
bly realistic burns, lacerations,
and other rather nasty surprises
for emergency responders.
An outstanding job of triage
was done by the various fire res-
cue and emergency medical ser-
vice units as they sorted out the
victims for assessment, treat-
ment, and/or transport to local
medical facilities. Staging areas
were designated for transport by
ambulances that were arriving
and departing every few minutes
to evacuate serious casualties..
and there were even two heli-


copter flights to transport
patients that triage had identified
as having severe, life threatening
trauma.
Outside of the immediate area
of the accident, a fantastic job of
both crowd and traffic control
was provided by local law
enforcement agencies, including
the Mulberry police department
and the Polk County sheriff's
office. Special mention should be
made of the refreshment oasis
provided by the Salvation Army
where participants could get
rehydrated and pick up a snack
to sustain body and soul through-
out the drill.
It would be an understatement
to say that this event was the
highlight of my summer. The
incredible amount of planning
and preparation that went
towards making this exercise run
like clockwork only serves to


underscore the constant prepara-
tion that our emergency respon-
ders put into making sure that
our county is ready for any num-
ber of possible catastrophes. As
we hear about the devastation
that our fellow citizens have
experienced in the wake of
Hurricane Katrina, it is reassur-
ing to know that so many indi-
viduals from all walks of life put
the safety of others first this sum-
mer by participating in a county-
wide disaster drill.
We owe it to ourselves and our
communities to prepare now for
future emergencies. Are you a
student with CPR training? Are
you a former Scout or veteran
with emergency preparedness,
live saving, or first aid skills? Are
you a member of the Red Cross or
other community volunteer?
Don't let your special talents
get rusty. We all need to give'a lit-


tle of our time today to help pre-
pare for the unthinkable. We
never know when we might be
called to be a key player in help-
ing others should our county
once again be hard hit by disaster.
And be sure to say a word of
thanks to the Man Upstairs for
our being blessed with so many
dedicated emergency responders
who are on call "24/7, 365." Our
thoughts and prayers are with all
of those recovering from
Hurricane Katrina as they try to
start getting their lives back
together.
A big, heartfelt "thank you" to
everyone hereabouts for their
assistance to others in their hour
of need well done, and may
God bless America.

America Needs Solar Energy


WASHINGTON, D.C. What
if instead of having to conserve
natural gas as the city of Bartow
is recommending in the wake of
hurricane Katrina, we had an
unlimited amount of energy to
use? What if this energy were
cheap and easily accessible to all.
What if this power source was so
readily available that the technol-
ogy already existed to put it in
place?
The answer is that we do.
Converted to electrical power, the
amount of sun that hits the U.S.
every day is an almost incalcula-
ble 385 quadrillion megawatts.
Considering that only five


megawatts are needed to power
500 energy-efficient homes for a
full year, it is apparent that the
sun provides incredible potential
for energy generation.
Clean,, renewable solar-gener-
ated power offers obvious advan-
tages when compared to coal, oil,
natural gas, or nuclear power.
Solar is cost competitive with the
dirty energy sources and has
none of the negative externalities
in the form of health and envi-
ronmental damage.
With no hazardous emissions,
solar energy will reduce air pollu-
tion and global warming, two of
the most pressing and costly


environmental issues of our time.
Solar energy will help the U.S. on
its way to energy independence
and, unlike nuclear power, solar
energy does not produce any
dangerous waste.
While coal, oil, natural gas and
nuclear power continue to pro-
vide profits for industry moguls,
however, the switch to renewable
energy will be slow. It is up to the
citizens of the U.S. to call upon
our government to install 250
megawatts of solar power by
2008 and to provide 20 percent of
our energy needs with renewable
energy by 2020.

Cigarette Litter Prevention Program


Keep Polk County Beautiful,
an affiliate of Keep America
Beautiful, Inc., is one of 28 com-
munities across the country that
is participating in the national
rollout of Keep America Beauti-
ful's Cigarette Litter Prevention
Program.
Keep Polk County Beautiful
selected a three block area in
Downtown Bartow for the pilot,
due to the large amount of foot
traffic the area attracts and the
support of the downtown busi-
nesses, the City of Bartow and
the Bartow Community Redevel-
opment Agency.
Each week through mid-No-
vember, KPCB representatives


will be in the pilot area placing
free pocket ashtrays in busi-
nesses, putting informational
posters in store windows,
and placing ash receptacles out-
side several businesses in part-
nership with the Bartow Leisure
Services Department.
Keep America Beautiful
launched the Cigarette Litter
Prevention Program in 2002 af-
ter identifying cigarette litter
(butts, packaging, and lighting
material) as among the most lit-
tered items found in clean-ups
around the country.
KPCB will use Keep America
Beautiful's "Guide to Cigarette
Litter Prevention," a CD-ROM'


that provides tools for communi-
ties to employ in launching a
plan to reduce cigarette litter.
Keep America Beautiful affili-
ates that used steps outlined in
the guide during field testing, re-
alized reductions in cigarette lit-
ter on an average of 46 percent.
Cigarette litter prevention re-
search and development of the
guide has been made possible by
generous, multi-year support
from Philip Morris USA.

Four Corners area in northeast
Polk County pleaded for better
fields.
"Our clubs could be so much
bigger, but there's nowhere for
our kids to play," Four Corners
Soccer Club representative Chris
Smith said.
Football leagues also sent rep-
resentatives. Neeva Green, from
the Polk City Football 'League,
said her teams now play only
away games.
"These kids need you to do the
right thing," she said.
Commissioners agreed ,the
lack of parks and the rising cost
of land are causing problems to
many residents, but eventually
decided to reduce the MSTU tax
rate.
Myers suggested the MSTU
millage be lowered to .45, and
suggested the commission move
$3.3 million in reserves to the
parks budget.
"We didn't have $3.3 million in
matching reserves last year
when the hurricanes hit," he
said. 'We tightened our belts."

Libraries, too, had their fans,
but commissioners seemed less
swayed by pleas regarding the
services libraries provide, and
cut that tax levy in half.
Commissioner Sam Johnson
said he was in favor of all the
taxes, but felt that asking for so
much money at one time was too
much.
He and Wilkinson both voted
against the library MSTU.
Wilkinson also voted against the
property tax increase for trans-
portation, proposing impact fees
as a better source of funding.
"At this point, we've not come
up with a better solution,"
Commissioner Paul Senft said,
adding that he was still open to
hearing other funding sources.
Johnson agreed, saying the
commission would continue to
seek other sources of funding.
"Taxes are. not something I
ever looked forward to applying,
especially since I will be paying
them too," he said. "We cannot
live on speculation of income;
that's irresponsible of us. We can-
not do what's best for me; we
have to do what's best for the
county."
Commissioners will hold the
second and final budget and tax

State Universities Report

Record Enrollment Numbers


Governor Jeb Bush and Flor-
ida Board of Governors Chair-
man Carolyn Roberts have an-
nounced record enrollment num-
bers for the fall semester in the
state university system.
At Florida's 11 institutions,
enrollment on the first day of
classes topped 281,000 students
a .3.1 percent, increase over
last year. .,
The higher figures include en-
rollment of,98,264 minority stu-
dents, also a 3.1 percent increase
over 2004.
:"These continued increases in
enrollment at our universities
are encouraging and reflect the
commitment of the state's uni-
versity system to providing more
students with the opportunity to
enter higher education," said
Governor Bush. "Florida's uni-
versities deserve recognition for
recruiting the best and the
brightest from all ethnic and so-
cioeconomic backgrounds."
Minority students made up 35
percent of the first day enroll-
ment maintaining last year's re-
cord percentage of minorities in
the university system.
First day enrollment saw its
strongest gain among Hispanic
students, up 7.5 percent over
first day of classes in 2004 and
increasing to 45,486. Since 1998,
Hispanic enrollment has grown
by 47.7 percent.
While enrollment of African-

An article in Thursday's edi-
tion of The Polk County Demo-
crat mistakenly spelled the
name of the principal's secretary
at James E. Stephens Elemen-
tary School as Tanya Peavey,
and listed Bartow Elementary
Academy as a participating
school in the Hurricane Katrina
relief T-shirt drive.
The correct spelling of the sec-
retary's name is Tanya Peavy,
and the two schools who have
purchased T-shirts from Ste-
phens are Bartow Middle School
and Bartow High School.


American students decreased by
1.6 percent, with 38,922 stu-
dents enrolled in the first day of.
classes, African-American enroll-
ment figures are up by nearly 24
percent since 1998. :
In addition to increases in mi-
nority enrollment, the gradua-
tion rate of minority students
has increased.
According to data from the
National Center for Education
Statistics, Florida was third in
overall graduation rates and
first for graduation rates for Af-
rican-American and Hispanic
higher education students
among the nation's ten largest
states.
"More students are well-pre-
pared to enter and complete
their higher education," said
Governor Bush. "This prepara-
tion is being reflected in a rising
graduation rate in our state's
university system. Not only are
more students coming in, but
more are staying in to get their
degrees."
"I applaud our state universi-
ties for their continued commit-
ment to expanding minority en-
rollment," Ms. Roberts said. "In-
novative recruitment efforts will
go a long way to encouraging mi-
nority students to pursue a
higher education, particularly as
we eliminate the achievement
gap in the state's K-12 system."

Hurricane Relief Sent To Law

Enforcement in Devastated Town


All Types Aluminum employ-
ees left Friday to provide hurri-
cane relief to Waveland, Miss.
Major Frances Hart of Polk
County Sheriffs Office told them
where they were needed.
They took a 35-foot RV and
set it up for law enforcement offi-
cers from the Polk County Sher-
iffs Office, the Lakeland Police
Department, Orange County,
Leon County, and the Florida
Fish and Game Commission.
These officers have been
sleeping on the ground, in cars,
and in tents in a Wal-Mart park-


ing lot. They have been the law
enforcement in Waveland since
the town no longer has a police
force.
In addition to the RV, All
Types took two pallets of water,
clothes, food, camping equip-
ment, and personal items do-
nated by Hollywood Cars and
Signs, Bartow Wal-Mart, M & M
Solutions, Bartow Ford, the
Whits, Jerry and Janice Gregg,
Gregg Bluml, and John Detjen.
All Types also took a Bobcat
loader, a four-wheeler, and an
ATV Ranger for law enforcement


to use for recovery.
Anyone who left Waveland
has nothing to come back to, a
company spokesperson said..
It is in question if Waveland
can ever be rebuilt. Salt water is
in everything. There are no busi-
nesses left and virtually no peo-
ple.
Those who go to the area to
help need to be completely self-
sufficient bringing their own
gas, food, and supplies.

Jackets Sting Bloodhounds, 25-14


By JEFF THORNBURG

Bartow used a balanced offen-
sive attack to post their second
win of the prep football season, a
25-14 victory over the Auburn-
dale Bloodhounds at Bruce
Canova Stadium in Auburndale
Friday night.
This non-district game fea-
tured four lead changes, a num-
ber of big;plays, and two of the
county's fastest ball carriers,
Auburndale's "Gernade
Gallishaw and Bartow's Ryan
Colson.
Gallishaw, who sat out the
first quarter, rushed for 122
yards, including a 61-yard dash
down the field for the Blood-
hounds first touchdown. At the
time the score gave Auburndale
a one-point lead.
Colson gained 115 yards and
scored three touchdowns, includ-
ing a 67-yard sprint down the
sideline, in the third quarter, re-
gaining the lead for Bartow.
Following a scoreless first
quarter, Bartow posted the
game's first points on a seven-
play, 32-yard drive, capped by an
eight-yard Colson run.
The county's leading rusher,
Gallishaw, put Auburndale on
the scoreboard with his 61-yard
run, with three minutes left in


the first half. But the Yellow
Jackets came right back with an
62-yard pass from junior quar-
terback Devarious Cook to Ja-
mal Darling, moving Bartow to
the Auburndale 19-yard-line.
Three plays later Colson scored
from two yards out, giving Bar-
tow a 12-7 halftime lead.
Auburndale regained the lead
early in the third quarter on a
six-play, 77-yard drive, capped
by a 19-yard run by quarterback
Daniel Evans.
However, just 84 seconds
later, Bartow was leading again,
and this time for good. Colson
exploded down the sideline 67-
yards to the end zone.
Bartow completed the scoring
when Cook connected with Dar-
ling on a 27-yard touchdown
pass late in the fourth quarter.
Darling caught five passes for
125 yards and the game's final
touchdown.
The Yellow Jacket defensive
line forced two Auburndale turn-
overs, stopping Bloodhound
drives. Near the end of the first
quarter Chris Broadhead recover
an Auburndale fumble, and a in-
terception by Steven Wesley,
who returned the ball 47 yards,
set up Bartow's final score.
Bartow is back home Friday
night to meet the new school

skills.

motion of good horsemanship
:and good fellowship in Osceola
County, the Silver Spurs Rodeo
today is one of the most success-
ful in the country. The event fea-
tures traditional rodeo competi-
tions such as bareback, saddle
bronc and bull riding, calf rop-
ing, barrel racing and much
more.

mation on the Kissimmee/St.

The Lady Warriors finally
have a full team.
According to Coach Moody,
"the women should go from
worst in the conference and re-
gion to one of the top three
teams."
"To my knowledge, this is the
first official women's team that
actually filled the women's ros-
ter."
The only returnee from last
year's team is junior Joslyne
Schofield. Coach Moody was able
to recruit six other women to fill
the women's roster.
They will be led by 20:20 5K
high school runner, Carrie Rowe
from St. Augustine.
"Rowe was a big pick-up for
us; she has so much potential
and is a great leader," Coach
Moody said.
She will be followed closely by
Stephanie Reibach and Kather-
ine Ragia.
"The two runners are exact


opposites when it comes to dis-
tance. Reibach will set fire on
the track with a PR of 2:19 in
the 800 meters and Ragia loves
to log the long mileage."
Caryn Dionne and Dabney
Bartlett are both from Marin
County High School. Dionne was
a former All-State runner in the
3200 meters and is a sub-20-
minute 5K runner. Bartlett
could be a solid six or seven run-
ner for the Warriors.
Ashley McClellan from Lin-
coln High School in Tallahassee
is also another freshman that
Coach Moody believes will make
strong improvements throughout
the year.
"As long as everyone stays
healthy, then we look pretty
good. I expect all seven runners
to contribute something big at
each meet," Coach Moody said.
"I can't wait to see the im-
provements we have made dur-
ing the past few weeks."

shaves with an ADVERTISED razor,

brushes his or her teeth with ADVERTISED toothpaste,

washes with ADVERTISED soap,

puts on ADVERTISED clothes,

drinks a cup of ADVERTISED coffee,

drives to work in an ADVERTISED car

and then...
refuses to ADVERTISE, believing that it doesn't pay.

the person ADVERTISES it for sale.

Fort Meade Deputy City Man-
ager Janice Thompson has been
named the outstanding munici-
pal official of the year during a
dinner meeting of the Ridge

nity College.
Mrs. Thompson's more than
43 years of service to the citizens
of Fort Meade were noted in the
award presentation.
The award is given each Sep-
tember to an elected or ap-
