Philip's Antiques Building Declared Unsafe;



May Delay Bartow's Main Street Project


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer
Main Street saw the loss of two
more businesses this week as the
one-time Philip's Department
Store building, which now houses
Philip's Antiques and The Gym,
was declared unsafe by the city.
An inspection resulted in the
building being posted unsafe on
Monday, and the tenants being
ordered by the city to vacate
within 24 hours.
"The structure has become
manifestly unsafe and constitutes
a public nuisance," Bartow
Building Official Donnie True
wrote in a letter to building own-
ers Richard McKinley and Neal
O'Toole on Monday.
"This constitutes a hazard to
the safety and health of the pub-
lic by reasons of inadequate main-
tenance, dilapidation, obsoles-
cence or abandonment. I believe
that the building is also in danger
of collapsing."
True said the city spoke with
an engineer working on the Main
Street improvement project, who
gave him a report on the build-
ing's condition, resulting in the
finding of unsafe conditions.
"We had a'structural engineer
look at the building, and that's
good enough for me," he said.
O'Toole, in his response to the
letter, requested a copy of the
report and said he has contacted
another engineer, who has previ-
ously worked with the property.
On Monday, that engineer,
David Pearce; wrote in an e-mail
that he had inspected the build-
ing in April, and found the east
wall at the southeast corner in
need of repair.
"The east wall at the southeast
corner is structurally unstable
and requires repair, but its insta-
bility does not represent an immi-
nent danger of collapse for the
entire building," he wrote of his
April inspection.
"If the east wall at the south-
east corner of the building were to
collapse, only the section of floor
and roof between the first interior
north-south line of columns and
the east wall would be affected,"
Pearce said.
In his letter, O'Toole said he
and his business partner would
be filing an administrative
appeal. Additionally, the letter
said the partners were reserving
the right to obtain a building per-

One look at a congressional map of Florida
reveals an array of bizarrely-shaped districts
that makes little geographic sense, according
toiformer U.S. Senate candidate Betty Castor.
: On Monday, Ms. Castor spoke to the Tiger
Bay Club of Polk County about this issue on
behalf of the Committee for Fair Elections.
Ms. Castor, a Democrat, is a former Florida
commissioner of education and past president
of the University of South Florida.
She began her talk by highlighting some
election facts about Florida.
In Florida, party registration is 41 percent
Democrat, 38 percent Republican, and 21 per-
cent Independent or third parties.
Despite being such a swing state, most of
the congressional and Florida Legislature
elections are uncompetitive, she said.
SOnly one Congressional race was closer
than 10 percent of the vote, she said; most of
.the others were landslides. In the Florida
Legislature, 72.5 percent of the candidates
were elected without opposition.
No incumbents on any level lost.
For Ms. Castor, this lack of competition is
unacceptable.
"For democracy to work, there must be fair
competition between candidates," she said.

Gerrymandering
What is the reason for this lack of competi-
tion in a state that is so evenly divided and
has a sizable independent contingent?
The key problem is that the incumbent
politicians draw the boundaries of their own


mit to repair the property.
Al Palmer, who owns Philip's
Antiques, which occupies the
ground floor of the building, said
he has seen the cracks in the
building become larger in the
past few weeks, and said the shift
of the building shattered a win-
dow on the east wall about three
weeks ago.
"It's starting to crumble more,"
he said.
While the decision to condemn
the building and the order that it
be vacated developed quickly,


cracks in the wall were spotted
years ago.
Bo Raulerson, owner of Bartow
Christian Books and Gifts, locat-
ed next door to the antique store,
recalls that his friend, the late
Curtis Edds, pointed out the
cracks to him many years ago
when Edds operated Carpets by
Curtis.
The north wall of the building
shows evidence of vertical cracks
having been patched years ago.
A tenant of the building for 20
years, Palmer said he was sad to
see the store close this way.
"I was so excited about the
Main Street project and seeing
things finish. It's hard," he said..


A sign posted on the entrance
to The Gym lists numbers that
customers can call for two weeks
of free access to another facility.
True said the city has directed
road milling not to be done on
Main Street in front of the build-
ing and for one block on either
side.
Sam Allen, project manager
with David Nelson Construction,
general contractor for the
Community Redevelopment
Agency's Main Street redesign


project, said his company will
comply with the directives from
the city to ensure safety of work-
ers and the public.
With the planned completion
date in November approaching,
this could put the redesign project
behind schedule.
"Construction will continue,"
said Jim Duane, executive direc-
tor of Bartow's CRA. "There are a
lot of other things to be done, and
the brickwork and work on other
parts of Main Street will contin-
ue. This will delay the milling,
but we're hoping it doesn't have a
major impact on the project."
Milling is the process in which
the upper layer of asphalt is


districts, Ms. Castor said.
With modern technology, it is possible for
incumbents to gather information even at the
street level in order to divide districts to their
advantage (which is called gerrymandering),
she said.
Both Lakeland and Dundee are split into
two different state House districts, even
though Lakeland's population of 87,900 is 43
times larger than Dundee's population of
.1,951.
No standards for districting in the Florida
Constitution exist, so the legislators are free
to draw districts however they wish, ignoring
geographic boundaries, she said.
For example, one congressional district
stretches from Jacksonville to Tallahassee in
such a way that it has been labeled the


ground up and hauled away, and
replaced by a fresh layer of pave-
ment.
The process creates a great
deal of vibration, and there was
concern that the vibration could
worsen the failure of the cracked
east wall and southeast corner of
the building.
In addition to calling a halt to
plans to mill Main Street in
downtown Bartow, Nelson
Construction also has postponed
the removal of the Main Street
sidewalk in front of the building.
That work, to be accomplished
with a jackhammer, also would
result in substantial vibration.
The plan calls for removing
and rebuilding the sidewalk in
that block.
Philip's Department Store was
named for its long-time owner,
Philip Berkovitz. When Palmer
moved his antique store into the
building, he changed the name to
Philip's Antiques.
The building is believed to be
nearly 100 years old.

This is the second major blow
to Main Street property in slight-
ly more than three months.
On June 6, a fire which started
in a second floor electric fixture
destroyed the one-time Tate-
Phillips Department Store
Building and the former Ritz
Theater.
At the time of the fire, the
Tate-Phillips building was occu-
pied by John Jerua. Truck Broker
and the old theater building by
Bartow Consulting Group, Inc.
Both businesses have resumed
operations in other locations, and
no decision has yet been made
about what use will be made of
the vacant property.

The redesign project stretches
the entire length of Main Street
from State Road 60 West to State
Road 60 East, but most of the
work is in the five blocks in the
heart of downtown Bartow, from
Broadway on the west to Jackson,
Avenue on the east.
In that section, the street is
being narrowed and the side-
walks made wider to create a
more pedestrian-friendly environ-
ment.
Extensive landscaping will
take place on the entire length of
Main Street.


"Finger District."
Other districts stretch from one coast to
the other, covering both highly-populated
urban and low-income rural areas.

Nonpartisan Solution

The solution is to create a nonpartisan,
independent commission to draw the district
lines, Ms. Castor said. Legislative and
Congressional districts are reconfigured every
10 years, after the U.S. Census.
The proposed commission would consist of
six members selected by the majority party,
six members selected by the minority party,

Impact Fee for Schools


Increased To $8,596;


Builders Threaten Suit


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

Despite threats of a lawsuit by
the Polk County Builders Assn.,
Polk County commissioners voted
to increase the impact fee on new
single family homes to pay for
more school classrooms from
$1,600 to $8,596, effective Dec. 1.
The impact fee will be $5,843
for apartment units, and $4,613
for mobile homes.
The vote was 4-to-1, with
Commissioner Randy Wilkinson
voting "no." Wilkinson failed to
get a second on his motion to
increase the fee to $2,836, the fee
recommended by the PCBA.
The difference between the two
figures is the amount of money
that a consultant told the county
would be required to comply with
the Class Size Amendment to the
Florida Constitution. That
amendment requires a dramatic
reduction in class sizes.
The PCBA said it is wrong to
require future home buyers to
pay the cost if implementing that
amendment.
Impact fees are imposed on
new construction to pay for the
public facilities and infrastruc-
ture made necessary by growth.
Several members of the
builders organization said they
expect that either the county
organization or its state equiva-
lent will file suit to block imposi-
tion of the higher tax.
John Wood, Jr., a builder, said
he could accept an impact fee for
new schools, but not to pay for the
Class Size Amendment costs.
He said many voters didn't
realize the cost of implementing
the amendment when they voted
to ratify it.
The Legislature authorized
double sessions, longer school


years, and Internet-based learn-
ing to meet the requirements of
the amendment, he said.
Wood predicted that such
actions would create a voter back-
lash and a vote to repeal the
amendment.
He questioned the legality of
an impact fee to cover class size.
Paul Dimbath said he supports
the $2,836 impact fee, but said
the Legislature should pay the
Class Size Amendment costs.
Dale Smith, a retired school
superintendent, called the Class
Size Amendment "a total debacle
from beginning to end." He said
he doubts that the Legislature
will come up with the funds, and
predicted that the law will be
changed.
Bob Williams, assistant school
superintendent, urged the com-
mission "to adopt the full fee."
The school board has deter-
mined the cost to implement the
Class Size Amendment, he said.
"Now it's time for the county
commission to do their job," he
said. The legality issue already
has been decided by the courts, he
added.
The Legislature has estimated
that the cost to implement the
amendment will be $6 billion for
facilities alone, he said.
"That's a huge wolf in our
yard."
Double sessions and longer
school years are not the solution,
he said, suggesting that "elemen-
tary school students could get out
at 10 o'clock at night."
If the Legislature does provide
funding, the impact fee would be
recomputed automatically, he
said. There would be no refund of
fees previously paid.
By 2010, every classroom in
the state must meet the class size
restrictions, Williams said.


"That's our highest priority;
there is no leeway."
Wilkinson predicted that small
specialized classes, such as
Advanced Placement courses, will
suffer.
"Something's got to give," he
said. "There's going to be an
uprising."
Polk Countians voted against
the amendment, Wilkinson said.
Commissioner Bob English
asked Williams about the $48
million that Polk is receiving
from the state to implement the
amendment.
Williams said that money is
, strictly for operating costs pri-
marily salaries not for new
classrooms.
Commissioner Paul Senft
asked Williams if he thinks the
Legislature "is likely to fund this
monster."
Williams said that legislators
"are sympathetic," but won't come
up with the money.
County Atty. Joe Jarret said it
is unclear what would happen if a
county school board failed to meet
the class size mandate. There is
no penalty in the amendment.
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
asked who would bear the cost of
defending a legal challenge if the
commission were sued over the
$8,596 impact fee.
Jarret said that would depend
on who was sued.
School Board Member Frank
O'Reilly recalled that the school
board asked for a $3,800 impact
fee several years ago, but got only
$1,600.
He reiterated that the impact
fee would be recalculated if the
Legislature provides more money
for school construction.

Character Education Program
Outlined For Bartow Lions


Paul Puckett, president and
board chairman of character
education at Bartow, Inc., gave
Bartow Lions Club members,
during their Sept. 13 meeting,
an overview of the operations of
character education in Bartow
schools, a program which has
been in operation since 1937.
The Bartow program has five,
teachers who teach seven 25-
minute classes in character edu-
cation to grades kindergarten
through fifth, Puckett said.
Originally, the program was
referred to as Bible In The.
Schools. Since it is no longer le-
gal for Christianity to be taught
in schools, Character Education
focuses on morals, 'ethics, and
stories about real people who.
have exemplified admirable
character traits in their lives.
Though the program is now
mandated in Polk. County
M.A.M.A. Rec,


schools, the Polk. County School
Board does not contribute funds
to the Bartow program. Contri-
butions from churches, large cor-
porations, civic clubs, and indi-
viduals, are depended upon to
keep the program going, I'iM ,c .
said.
The greatest needs of the pro-
gram are substitute teachers
and additional funds. Puckett
said teachers are paid $53 per
day for'the seven classes taught.
"We have a great relationship
with the principals of the four
Bartow schools in which we
teach," Puckett said. "Two of the
principals have gone out of their
way to praise our teachers."
Teachers in the program are
Mary Jane Driesler, a 37-year
veteran; Pat Browning, Myrtle
Chapman, Vivian Peacock, and
Sherry Childers.

Walk on Saturday, Sept. 17, at
Lake Hollingsworth'in Lakeland
from 9 a.m. to noon.
September is National Recov-

PCSO, through partnerships
such as MAMA, has reportedly


been successful in its war
against drugs, specifically meth.
Since 2000, 50 meth labs have
been seized and dismantled in
Polk County, and that number
has decreased each year.
"By heightening awareness
and educating the public about
the dangers of meth, we can
have a positive impact on crime
in Polk County," Sheriff Grady
Judd said. "Many of the arrests
'that our deputies make everyday
are in some way related io 'drug
use."

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

Safe at Last atRay Jay Stadium


Editorial











Hurricane Shows Why


Florida Opposes Drilling


This year's federal energy bill con-
tained a requirement for making an
inventory of oil beneath the Gulf of
Mexico off the coast of Florida. .
That provision clearly the first step
toward drilling for oil despite the virtual-
ly unanimous opposition by Floridians
- becomes even more ominous in the
wake of Hurricane Katrina.
Our neighbor states on the northern
ccst of the Gulf of Mexico have wel-
comed the economic benefits of off-shore
drilling, as is their right.
In Florida, the threat to the tourist
industry, let alone to the environment, is
widely viewed as more important than
the economic benefits of the oil industry.,
Just as the hurricane gives ammuni-
tion to those who want to force off-shore
drilling on Floridians, it underscores
why Florida doesn't want any part of it.
Though of distinctly secondary impor-
tance to the destruction of lives and
property in Alabama, Mississippi and
Louisiana, the hurricane took its toll of
oil rigs off the coast of those states. That
is one of the oil industry's excuses for the
unconscionable spike in gasoline prices.
A little-noticed story published in The


Economist underscores why Florida
doesn't want any part of off-shore
drilling:
At least 20 rigs that were anchored in
the Gulf of Mexico are missing.
Not damaged.
Not leaking.
Missing.
As Hurricane Katrina so dramatically
demonstrated, in an all-out battle
between Man and Nature, the betting
line is always on Nature.
There is no such thing as a hurricane-
proof off-shore oil rig.
For Floridians, it's not worth the risk.

According to research done by
people who clearly don't have
enough to do, taking the family to
a professional football game costs
three or four times as much as my
first car.
Fifty years ago, your first car
typically cost $100. It was used
but mechanically sound. Nobody
kept track of how many miles to
the gallon it got, since gas was 30-
some-odd cents per gallon.
I enjoy professional football -
shoot, I even enjoy the Bucs as
much as the next guy, but my
non-existent Scotch-Irish heritage
frowns at spending several hun-
dred bucks to fight traffic before
and after a game, pay for a park-
ing space what I used to pay for a
tankful of gas, and pay for a hot
dog and a beer what I could pay
for dinner at Bern's.
It's just a matter of priorities.
I have been to two Bucs games,
actually, and watched both from


the comfort of a skybox. Once I
was invited by the PR depart-
ment of a major corporation, the
other time by an old Florida
National Guard buddy who
worked in management for
another major corporation.
It is a great way to watch a ball
game.
Outside of the pre-game and
post-game parking hassles, it has
all the comforts of home, and a
pretty fine home at that.
Attending a Bucs game will
take on a new dimension of
adventure beginning this Sunday.
That's when guests at the ball
game will be treated with all the
hospitality of an airline traveler.
We will protected at last from
some lunatic with a box cutter
commandeering the pressbox
and ordering Bob Costas to fly
Ray Jay stadium into the Trop.
Actually, given average atten-
dance at the Trop, that probably


wouldn't make headlines.
Okay, how, you may ask, is a
hijacker going to commandeer a
football stadium, and what
would he do with it when he did?
And I would reply, I'm not
sure, but thanks to an NFL policy
requiring pat-down searches of
all fans, it's not going to happen
on Malcolm Clazer's watch.
Al[,ai ". in the words of a
Tribune story, the guards will be
looking for "bombs and big
weapons." Apparently those
killer nail-clippers and other
lethal weapons that have caused
a panic in the airline security
business won't be enough to
deny access to the stadium.
But if you're carrying an RPG
in your backpack, or have 20
pounds of plastic explosives
strapped to your butt, you've got
some heavy explaining to do.
By comparison, I am reminded
of my most recent visit to the


Kennedy Space Center. I wai
required to surrender my minia-
ture Swiss Army knife keychain.
We can't be too careful about des-
peradoes hijacking a spaceship.
I am all for reasonable security,
and would have been impressed
if the airport screener who insist-
ed that I turn on my Palm Pilot
had paid enough attention to
notice that it started beeping a
few seconds later.
It was an audible reminder to
me that it was time to be at the
airport, but I would rate it as a
more ominous-appearing device
than Mary's rubber-soled shoes,
that were selected for minute
examination after she insisted on
a hand-search not an X-ray -
of her camera.
So now Ray Jay Stadium will
be protected from Weapons of
Mass Destruction.
I am at peace.

(12"x 18" not available in Fort Meade.)


Robert L. Fryer, Jr., a finan-
cial consultant, has been elected
chairman of Florida Southern
College's board of trustees. .
Fryer, a resident of Lancaster,
Pa., has been a member of the
board since 2002.
"I am both thrilled and hon-
ored to have been elected to
serve as chairman of the Florida
Southern College Board of Trus-
tees," stated Fryer. "I look for-
ward to working with our tal-
ented and experienced Trustees
to build on the strong founda-
tions of our predecessors as we
guide the College to new levels of
academic excellence."
Fryer has spent his career in
the banking and securities in-
dustry, having served in a num-
ber of senior management posi-
tions in b6th industries.
He was executive vice-presi-
dent and chief financial officer of
Hamilton Bank and its parent,
National Central Financial Cor-
poration, a $2 billion bank hold-
ing company, until 1983.
He then joined Hopper Soli-
day & Co., Inc., a securities firm,
serving as chairman, president
and chief executive officer until
1994, and then served as presi-
dent, chief operating officer and
a member of the board of direc-
tors of Dauphin Deposit Corpo-
ration, a $6 billion bank holding
company, until his retirement
from banking.
He rejoined Hopper Soliday as
chairman and continues today as


a registered representative with
RBC Dain Raucher, a successor
firm. He has held numerous
memberships on boards of public
and private companies and non-
profit institutions.
He is a member of the faculty
of the Central Atlantic School of
Banking, Dickinson College, and
the Advanced School of Banking,
Bucknell University.
A 1970 graduate of Florida
Southern College, Fryer is a
member of Sigma Chi fraternity
and Omicron Delta Kappa and a
graduate of the ROTC program.
"I attribute much of my pro-
fessional success to the excep-
tional education I received, at
Florida Southern College,"
stated Fryer. "Not only did my
academic coursework provide a
solid knowledge base for a career
in finance, but the liberal arts
emphasis at Southern instilled
in me a passion for life-long
learning."
"I am so very pleased to have
such an outstanding alumnus
leading our board," said Dr.
Anne Kerr, president of Florida
'Southern. "Bob's business and
investment expertise, as well as
his leadership, are of great value
to the college. Bob's has demon-
strated his commitment to pri-
vate higher education through
exemplary teaching at several
distinguished institutions as
well as his service to and sup-
port, of Florida Southern Col-
lege."


Platters, Drifters, Coasters

Head Foundation Fall Gala


Mid-Florida Medical Services
Foundation will host The Plat-
ters, The Coasters and The
Drifters as the headline enter-
tainment at the foundation's
16th annual fall gala, scheduled
for Tuesday, Nov. 8, at Nora
Mayo Hall in Winter Haven.
The annual fundraising event
has raised tens of thousands of
dollars to support the Founda-
tion's health care initiatives in
recent years. These include the
Foundation's Health Care Schol-
arship Endowment fund, Winter
Haven Hospital's new capital
building campaign and the new
Bostick Heart Center, where
open-heart surgery will soon be-
gin after more than a decade of
planning.
"We have many accomplish-
ments to celebrate, such as the
opening of our new cardiovascu-
lar center of excellence, and we'll
lay out the goals we are seeking
to achieve," said Richard
Straughn, Foundation chairman.
The Platters, The Coasters
and The Drifters comprise three
musical groups who have com-
bined to perform some of some of
the biggest hits of the '50s and
'60s.
The Platters are known for
the unique style of their numer-


ous ballads that recapture an
era when life was simpler. They
will perform such ballads as
"Only You," "Great Pretender,"
and "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes."
The Coasters will perform
much of the comedy material
originally created by the late
Cornell Gunter for the original
Coasters. Gunter, known as the
comic genius of the group, cre-
ated numerous skits and rou-
tines that made the original
Coasters the "clown princes of
rock and roll." His legacy lives
on as The Coasters perform such
stellar hits as "Yakty Yak," "Poi-
son Ivy," and "Charley Brown."
The Drifters are known for ty-
ing rhythm and blues songs to
classical strings and melodies.
Their songs include such legen-
dary classics as "This Magic Mo-
ment," "Save the Last Dance for
Me," "Under the Boardwalk,"
"On Broadway," and "Up on the
Roof."
Larry Tucker, Fall Gala chair-
man and Foundation trustee,
said that although several or-
ganizations in East Polk and
Highlands County already have
made sponsorship commitments
to the Fall Gala, a number of ad-
ditional opportunities remain.

Sixty-one applicants have ap-
plied fro the position of president
of Polk Community College.
Dr. Larry Durrence recently
announced his retirement as
PCC's third president in Janu-
ary 2006.
At the Sept. 1 meeting of the
Presidential Search Committee,
consultant Dr. Jeff Hockaday in-
formed the 18 members of the
committee that the pool of appli-
cants includes 15 sitting presi-
dents, 43 males, and 18 females.
Dr. Hockaday, with the North
Carolina firm of Hockaday-
Hunter and Associates, has as-
sisted with the presidential
searches of several Florida com-
munity colleges and knows about
half of the individuals who ap-
plied to PCC.
"This is an extremely strong
pool of blue chip candidates," he
told the committee. "I've never
seen 15 sitting presidents ,ih a
pool of candidates."
Dr. Hockaday said he would
narrow the pool down to 25 ap-


plicants and the committee
members will have until the end
of September to review the appli-
cation packets.
They will meet again on Sept.
29 at 8:30 a.m. in the boardroom
of the administration building on
the Winter Haven campus. At
that meeting they will vote on
the top 12 candidates.
Then the committee will con-
duct telephone interviews or re-
quest video tapes from the appli-
cants with the goal of reducing
the pool to six individuals as
they will recommend to the dis-
trict board of trustees for in-per-
son interviews.
PCC recently placed classified
ads in several media outlets in-
cluding local newspapers and na-
tional higher education periodi-
cals seeking candidates with a
doctorate and five or more years'
senior admistrative experience
in higher education.
The DBOT hopes to have a
new president selected by Febru-
ary 2006.

federal grant that will allow the
college to start a charter high

pus.
PCC's Collegiate High School
has been operating for the past
four years on the Lakeland cam-
pus.
CHS represents the next level
in PCC's dual enrollment, which
allows students to take' college-
level courses while completing
their high school curriculum pro-
gram. CHS has been so success-
ful that there is a waiting list
among junior and senior high
schools for the 200 slots offered.

stration grant will provide
startup monies for equipment,
salaries, travel and training -
everything that is needed to rep-
licate the program at the Winter

Polk Community College has
received a $427,500 Florida Ca-
reer Education Grant that will
be used to increase nursing labs
on both campuses enabling the
college to admit more RN stu-
dents.
The funds have been targeted
to expand PCC's new LPN to RN
bridge program, but all nursing
students will benefit from the ex-
panded lab space and equip-
ment.
The expanded labs will allow
PCC to admit a class of 120
nursing students. The current
capacity is 100 per admission cy-
cle.
Currently there is a waiting
list for PCC's nursing program.
"There are numerous students
on a waiting list. Nursing is a
very, very strong program," said
Stephen Hull, dean of workforce
development.
These state education grant
monies do not provide funds for
nursing faculty or for scholar-
ships, which have been funded
as part of a $1.3 million donation
to the Polk Community College
Foundation by the county's five
hospitals to increase the number
of PCC nursing graduates.
In 2003, faced with a shortage
of registered nurses, Bartow Me-
morial Hospital, Heart of Florida
Regional Medical Center, Lake-
land Regional Medical Center,
Lake Wales Medical Centers and


Winter Haven Hospital estab-
lished a three-year partnership
to increase the number of PCC
nursing graduates.
The program, known as "Part-
nership for Success: A Hospital
Initiative for Nursing Educa-
tion," has been very successful,
Hull said. Funds have been used
to expand the faculty, market
the nursing program and offer
scholarships to students with
need. More than 220 nursing
students have benefited from
these scholarships that range
from $300 to $3,000.
PCC President J. Larry Dur-
rence said it will be important
for PCC and the area hospitals
to continue their partnership
which has provided the addi-
tional funding that PCC needed
to hire the faculty that enabled
PCC to expand enrollment in its
nursing program during the past
two years.
The state grant is part of a
$21 million package being
awarded to Florida public and
private secondary and post-sec-
ondary institutions to support
new or expanding programs in
nursing education and teacher
certification and career acade-
mies.
PCC is one of 17 recipients of
the nursing grants that amount
to $10 million in nursing grants
authorized this year by the Flor-
ida Legislature.

'Common Reading' Experience


Florida Southern College be-
gan its second year of assigning
summer reading projects to new
students.
The college joins hundreds of
academic institutions across the
country in planning discussion
groups and events among new
students related to their com-
mon reading experience.
The Examined Life freshman
seminar (EXL) introduced stu-
dents to "The Kite Runner," a
best-selling novel by Afghan na-
tive Khaled Hosseini.
"This book is one that stu-
dents have really been able to
sink their teeth into thanks to
its layers of meaning and com-
plexity," said Dr. Marcie Pospi-
chal, director of academic sup-
port services.
Students debated the cultural
and social issues affecting the
book's characters as well as the
turmoil in Afghanistan today.
"I have heard from both stu-
dents and faculty that they
thought it was an excellent
choice for a Common Reading,"
Dr. Popsichal said.
Activities related to "The Kite
Runner" were incorporated into
the new-student orientation ses-
sions, and included building and
decorating kites using themes
and characters from the book.
The best-decorated kites
brought a "Best of Art" award to
orientation groups 1 and 28 for
their collaborative effort, and a
"Best Depiction of a Theme" in
"The Kite Runner" to group 27.
"Every response has been fa-
vorable to the orientation events
surrounding The Kite Runner,'"
said Dr. Pospichal about her
EXL class.
"Each of my 20 students par-
ticipated in the class discussion.
Not everyone agreed with the
opinion of others, but students
shared their insights, ideas and
questions in a lively yet respect-
ful manner."'


Students' comments on the
EXL class and discussion groups
have been positive. Freshman
Megan Higbee, a business ad-
ministration-finance major from
Campbell, Calif., said, "Every
student actively participated and
wanted their opinions heard.
Our class has so much diversity
and different ways of thinking
that it was interesting to hear
their opinions towards the
novel."
Dr. Mary Pharr, professor of
English, believes the reading as-
signment has brought out the
best in the college's new stu-
dents.
"The students in this initial
discussion class were both en-
thusiastic and perceptive," she
says. "They suggested symbolic
readings of the kite game in the
novel that I certainly hadn't
thought of before."
As part of its Founders Week
Celebration in March, Florida
Southern has invited the book's
author to visit the college on
March 22. Hosseini will meet
with EXL students and their
professors and give a presenta-
tion for the campus and guests.
Hosseini was born in Kabul,
Afghanistan, in 1965. His family
relocated to Paris in 1976 where
his father was assigned to the
Afghan embassy. In 1980 the
family asked for political asylum
in the U.S. following the commu-
nist takeover and Soviet inva-
sion of Afghanistan.
Hosseini moved to San Jose,
Calif., with his family, graduated
from the University of California
San Diego School of Medicine,
and currently practices as an in-
ternist.

Betty Castor Speaks At Tiger Bay


(Continued from Page 1A)
and three members selected by
the chief justice of the Florida
Supreme Court.
Standards to guide the com-
mission also would be created:
the districts must be compact,
utilize political and geographical
boundaries, preserve communi-
ties of interest, not be drawn to
favor politicians or their parties,
and be competitive when practi-
cal, without jeopardizing other
standards.
In total, this program would
require three related amend-
ments to the Florida
Constitution, she said: one to
implement the standards, one to
form the commission, and one to
make sure that the new districts
would be in place for the 2008
election. If the amendments
weren't approved until 2010, the
changes wouldn't take place until
after the 2020 Census.
The Committee for Fair
Elections, of which Ms. Castor is
a co-chairman, -is circulating
three petitions to place those pro-
visions on the ballot.
The committee currently has
300,000 signatures, which is
about half of what it needs by
next Feb. 26 in order for the pro-
posals to make it on the 2006 bal-
lot.

Similar Systems

After outlining the proposal,
Ms. Castor responded to ques-
tions from the Tiger Bay Club.


When asked about the
whether there were similar sys-
tens in other states, Ms. Castor
said that Iowa does, and now has
small, rectangular districts.
She also said that Gov. Arnold
Schwarzeoneggar is heading a
similar effort in California.
According to her organiza-
tion's fact sheet, 10 states have
similar standard requirements,
12 have independent commis-
sions to draw legislative districts,
and six states have independent
commissions to draw congres-
sional districts.
Fourteen states currently are
considering redistricting initia-
tives.
In answering a question on
whether the new districts will
have an impact on incumbents
who may find themselves living
in new districts, Ms. Castor said
that one-party districts also
prompt lobbyists to send less
funds to those areas, because
they know who will be elected
long before election day based on
each candidate's party.
Districts would benefit from
more funding by having more
competitive elections, especially
by including independent candi-
dates, Ms. Castor said.

Independents

She also was asked about the
make-up of the Committee for
Fair Elections.
The board members, in addi-
tion to Ms. Castor, are Chairman
Ben Wilcox, executive director of

members after Monday's luncheon. Ms. Castor

cating an independent, nonpartisan redistricting


FSC Receives

Che-mistry

Grant
Florida Southern College stu-
dent affiliate chapter of the
American Chemical Society
(ACS) has been selected to re-
ceive an Innovative Activities
Grant from the ACS.
The FSC chapter was. one of
five affiliates chosen to receive
this award. The funds will be
used to support the chapter's
outreach activities with local
high school students enrolled in
advanced placement chemistry.
Dr. Carmen Gauthier, the stu-
dents' faculty advisor, learned
that little time is allotted to hold
labs in high school AP science
classes.
"I suggested to my students
that one outreach activity could
involve the developing of labs for
AP classes," she said. "We pro-
pose to invite students to come
to FSC to conduct three labs in
the fall and three labs in the
spring." The grant money will
pay for chemical supplies needed
to conduct the experiments.

mer State Comptroller Bob
Milligan (R); former judge and
former Seminole County Atty.

While there are no indepen-

explained that the board is bipar-
tisan and that its members work
to find more independents to join
their cause.
In what' was deemed the best
question of the luncheon by
Emcee S. L. Frisbie, IV, Ms.
Castor was asked whether it was
wise to submit governing power
to unelected individuals.
Ms. Castor said that in many
cases, problems can arise when
those with power cannot be held
accountable by the public.
However, on this issue, she
believed an independent commis-
sion was warranted because the
elected politicians are the ones
with the most to gain from abus-
ing the system.
Whichever party is in power
redraws the districts in order to
maintain that power, and incum-
bents on both sides of the aisle
work together in order to keep
themselves in office, she said.
"That's not what I call a fair
election in a democracy."

"We have to comply with it; we
may not like it, we may not agree
with it," he said of the Class Size
Amendment.
He recalled that. two-and-a-
half years ago, there were predic-
tions that home-building would
grind to a halt if impact fees were
imposed.
Instead, he said, 20,000 build-
ing permits have been issued
since then, and it takes six
months to a year on a waiting list
to have a home built.
Growth of the county creates
the need for additional class-
rooms to meet the Class Size
Amendment, O'Reilly said. If the
county were not growing, enroll-
ments would decrease as each
class of seniors graduated, he
said.
Senft asked if impact fee rev-
enues could be used to defend a
suit against the fees.
Randy Young, the county's
impact fee consultant, said they
could not. In other counties,
school boards have paid part or
all of the legal cost of defending
impact fees, he added.

Impact Fees

funding for new classrooms.
Myers told O'Reilly that the
school board should be responsi-
ble for defending any such litiga-
tion.
O'Reilly said he would encour-
age his fellow board members to
bear the cost of legal defense.
School Board Member
Margaret Lofton said the focus
should be on the education of
Polk's children. She also ques-
tioned that the builders would
sue to block school impact fees.
Home building is booming in
Polk County, she said.
She asked if the builders
would prefer double sessions for
school.
Under Florida's concurrency
law, development cannot contin-
ue without sufficient schools and
other facilities, she said.
Wilkinson asked Ms. Lofton if
she would be willing to reassign
high school students from schools
that are overcrowded to schools
that are under capacity.
"If that's something we have to
do, I think the school board will
step up and make the hard deci-
sion," she replied.
Dave Carter said builders and
developers do not pay impact
fees; they only collect them from


mit to him a panel of highly
qualified applicants for these po-
sitions no later than Oct. 25.
Members of the Nominating
Commission are G. Gregory
King, chairman, of Winter Ha-
ven; Billy R. Ready, vice-chair-
man, of Auburndale; Sylvia
Blackmon-Roberts of Lakeland;
Judy Lee Brown of Sebring;
Mitchell D. Franks of Lakeland;
Deborah Lee Oates of Bartow;
John K. Stargel of Lakeland;
Janet M. Stuart of Lakeland;
and Donald H. Wilson of Bartow:


home buyers.
The Class Size Amendment
requires the state to pay for new
classrooms, he said, adding: "To
me it just doesn't seem right."
Carlton Hodges, who rents
residential property, said a law-
suit probably would be filed by
the Florida State Home Builders,
not by the county builders group.
He urged the commission to
adopt the smaller fee.
Another builder said that
impact fees should be collected on
sale of existing homes as well as
on new construction.
English moved adoption of the
full $8,596 for single family
homes; Commissioner Sam
Johnson seconded.
Senft asked if the ordinance
could be made contingent on the
school board's willingness to
defend any lawsuits. Jarret said
the ordinance would have to be
readvertised for another public
hearing.
Senft complained that the
Class Size Amendment is anoth-
er "unfunded mandate" from the
Legislature. Myers agreed.
The increase passed over
Wilkinson's dissent, the commis-
sioners set the effective date as
Dec. 1.


Good Shepherd Hospice will

New BASS Tours Offered to Anglers in 2006


orts




,ws


In 2006, the newly created
CITGO Bassmaster Northern
and Southern Tours will be a
high-performance level of profes-
sional bass fishing, according to
BASS officials.
Now, BASS is detailing the
specifics of the tours and is re-
ceiving positive feedback from
the anglers.
"The younger guys in the
sport have more opportunities
than guys like myself, Denny
Brauer or Larry Nixon have ever
had," said Rick Clunn, winner of
the Greatest Angler Debate pre-
sented by John Deere.
Indeed, Don Rucks, BASS
general manager and vice presi-
dent, said the intention of the
tours is to offer anglers, a higher
level of competition.
"They are the perfect way to
groom those anglers striving to
reach our premier tournament,
the CITGO Bassmaster Elite Se-
ries," he said.
While those anglers strive for
success on the tour level, it won't
be all work and no reward. Each
tournament on the Northern and
Southern Tours pays down 60
places, including $75,000 in cash
and merchandise to the boater
champion and $30,000 in mer-
chandise to the first-place non-
boater, based on a 150-angler
field.
Plus, anglers won't have to
choose between the Tours be-
cause the Southern Tour will
take place in the spring and


summer and the Northern Tour
will occur in the summer and
fall. The full schedules will be
announced at a later date.
"I love the idea of having five
tour events in each division,"
Tour pro Frank Scalish of Ohio
said. "First, the expanded sched-
ule gives you some breathing
room and allows for a slip-up if
an angler has one bad tourna-
ment.
"Second, for guys who are just
starting to experience life on the
road, the expanded tour schedule
gives them a real taste of what
the Elite Series will be like."
And some anglers will, in fact,
be headed to the Elite Series.
The top five pro point leaders
from each division automatically
qualify for the Elite Series and
the top three pro point leaders
from each division automatically
qualify for the CITGO Bassmas-
ter Classic.
Also, BASS is offering a sec-
ond chance to pro anglers who
just missed the cut. Anglers who
finish in sixth through 25th
place in each of these tours will
be matched up against Elite Se-
ries anglers who. have not quali-
fied for the next season to battle
for the final 10 Elite Series spots
in a wild card qualifier.
To give these anglers a finan-
cial head start, the wild card
qualifier will award a total prize
purse of $155,000 in Elite Series
entry fees and cash to the top 12
professional anglers, including a


top prize of one year of paid en-
try fees.
The top 60 non-boaters will
vie for more than $200,000 in
cash, merchandise and paid en-
try fees for one of the following
year's tours.
"You can step up through the
tour level to the Elite Series with
good performance," Clunn added.
"It will be a battle, but there are
so many opportunities to make a
living in this sport now."
Entry fees for the Bassmaster
Tours are $1,500 for boaters and
$350 for non-boaters per event.
A detailed list of payouts is
available at www.bassmaster.
com.
BASS is a worldwide author-
ity on bass fishing, sanctioning
more than 20,000 events
through the BASS Federation
annually.
BASS stages bass fishing
tournaments for every skill level
and culminates with the CITGO
Bassmaster Classic.
Through its clubs, youth pro-
grams, aquatic resource advo-
-cacy, magazine publishing and
multimedia platforms, BASS of-
fers a wide array of services and
support to its nearly 550,000
members. The organization is
headquartered in Celebration.

Bartow returns home Friday
night for a Class 3A-District 10
contest against the Ridge Com-
munity Bolts.
Kickoff at Bartow Memorial
Stadium is 7:30 p.m. and the
game can be heard on AM 1130
WBF.
The Yellow Jackets are com-
ing off an impressive and bal-
anced offensive performance at
Auburndale, last week. Bartow
posted 366 yards of total offense
on way to their second win of the
season, offset by one loss.
Bartow is scoring an average
of 19 points per game, while the
Yellow Jacket defense is giving


up 17 points per game.
Ridge Community is a brand
new school fielding its very first-
football team. Despite being the
new kids on the block, the Bolts
have plenty of coaching experi-
ence.
In a surprise move, Richard
Tate resigned his position as
Kathleen's head coach to take
the same job at Ridge. Tate has
been coaching football in Polk
County since 1989, first as an as-
sistant coach in Bartow and
Lakeland, before enjoying his'
successful five-year run as the
Red Devils' top man.
In week two, Ridge posted
their first win,' a 29-0 shutout
over Mount Dora. Losses at Avon


Park and a one-point set-back
last week against St. Could Har-
mony, give the Bolts a 1-2 re-
cord.
Ridge's offense is scoring an
average of 14 points per game,
while the Bolt's defense is allow-
ing an impressive 15.6 points per
game.
Bartow has suffered one loss
in district play at Kathleen,
while tomorrow night's game
will be the first district game of
the season for Ridge.
In the only other Class 3A-
District 10 game, Kathleen trav-
els to Lake Wales, while Haines
City enjoys an open date.

Cool Downtown Living


Charming details lay around every corner in the home of Sue
and Howard Hanson above their ice cream parlor, The Cool Shoppe,
on South Central Avenue in Downtown Bartow.
While relaxing, in the bathtub, the couple or their guests can
enjoy a lacy framed view of the Polk County.Historical Courthouse.
From wood, laminate and tiled floors to the original brick walls,
the home is a mix of the historic and modern convenience.

Take a tour of the cutest down-
town your imagination can cre-
ate, and in addition to charming
awnings, shady walkways and
friendly shops, you ai-e'sure to see
charming apartments lining the
second story buildings of Main
Street.
In late August, Bartow's
Community Redevelopment
Agency was advised by a plan-
ning consultant to make down-
town a residential area.
And while the consultant
mostly concentrated on larger,
mixed-use buildings, smaller
upstairs apartments are a great
start.
Sue and Howard Hanson, own-
ers of the popular Cool Shoppe,
have created an adorable and
comfortable home above their
business, lessening their com-
mute to just a flight of stairs.
What was once a large parti-
tioned room with exposed plumb-
ing and electrical-work and brick
walls has become a bright, com-
fortable home for the couple, who
gave up their traditional home in
Waterwood, between Bartow and
Highland City, and moved into
their new home during renova-
tions.
Arid although the couple gave
up a home, they actually gained


ly


square footage in their new flat.
The couple, who saved the
pressed-tin ceiling in the shop,
tried to mix modern convenience
with an appreciation for history.
And while a wide' wooden
planked floor was not salvageable
and the exposed beam ceiling was
also not able to be saved, the
apartment features the original
brick details and views that
couldn't be prettier if they were
on postcards.


light from east facing windows.
Small details, such as a windowsill vase, decanter and: lacy
details add whimsy and charm to an adorable space.
A back alley, filled with murals and plants is the view. from the
guest room.
A well-appointed kitchen with sage cabinets is to the north of the
seating area, all in one large room at the front of the building.

Katrina's Legacy: Chaos and Compassion


By ROGER CAMPBELL
Hurricane Katrina kept the
world glued to television screens
while blowing over the gulf and
then ashore, wreaking havoc on
towns and cities in her path,
forcing an exodus of thousands,
trapping victims of her flood on
rooftops and terrifying young
and old who had fled to the so-
called refuge of last resort in
New Orleans.
During this desperate time,
second guessing and random in-
criminations ran wild as if
anyone could have predicted
with precision the degree of diffi-
culty this vicious storm would
bring to those trying to rescue
the endangered or relieve the
suffering of people caught up in
such a nightmarish natural dis-,
aster.
Now, after days of anguish
over this tragedy, something
positive is happening. The pent-
up compassion that had been
building during the viewing of
multiplied scenes of suffering is
showing itself alive and well.
Families, schools, churches,
businesses, and individuals are
opening their hearts, homes, and
checkbooks to those suffering
from the effects of Katrina's
rage.
The Detroit News reports that
families displaced by, Hurricane
Katrina have, begun arriving in
Metro Detroit and they are being
greeted by volunteers offering.
housing, food, and even educa-
tion for the children, saying the
outpouring of care in this north-
ern community is phenomenal.
And the highway to Detroit
isn't the only road to relief from
Katrina's chaos.
Far from it multiply De-


troit's response by what's hap-
pening in other caring communi-
ties, and you begin to see what
contagious compassion can do.
When compassionate people
become the instruments of their
compassionate Lord in alleviat-
ing suffering, help is on the way.
The Psalmist once described a
violent storm that must have
been similar to Hurricane Ka-
trina. Waves reached high and
then plunged to the depths.
He says the people caught in
this violent storm were so fright-
ened that they staggered as if
they had been drinking and, in
his words, they "were at their
wits" end.
Then, suddenly, in answer to
their prayers, the storm ended
and the sea became calm (Psalm
107:25-30).
Commenting on this storm in
his classic work "A Treasury of
David," the still widely read 19th
century English minister, C.H.
Spurgeon, wrote:
"Where huge billows had been
leaping high, there is now
scarcely a ripple to be seen.
When God makes peace it is
peace indeed, the peace that sur-
passes all understanding. He can.
change the condition of a man's
mind in a moment so that it will
seem an absolute miracle to him
that he has passed so suddenly
from hurricane to calm."
We all pass through storms.
The tempest that tries you to-
day may not measure five on the
hurricane scale, but the wind
and waves of pain or marital
strife or financial desperation
have brought you to your wits'
end. You wonder if anyone cares
and if so, why help is so slow in
arriving.
While riding out a fierce


storm on the Sea of Galilee, the
disciples asked their Lord if He
cared about them and their sur-
vival.
At that chaotic moment, He
demonstrated His compassion by
stilling the storm.
Afraid, the disciples asked an-
other question: "What manner of
man is this that even the wind
and the sea obey him?"
They might have answered
their own question: "He is a man
who cares in a storm."

I Musings From God's Penman


Why God Gave Us Coffee


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
This week I came face-to-face
with a genuine dilemma.
I had several meetings across
town and for some reason I mis-
calculated and ended up with a
2-1/2 hour gap between meet-
ings.
I hate to waste time, but if I
drove back to my office, I would
simply have to return to my
meeting later, and with the cost
of gas these days, one cannot be
too cautious.
You know gas is getting high
when it costs more to fill up the
car than the car is actually
worth. The most valuable thing
in my car is in my gas tank..
I remedied my situation by
stopping in a small coffee shop
for cup of Joe. As far as I'm con-
cerned, there is no bad time to
have a cup of coffee, in spite of
the price.
I ordered my coffee and when
the waitress brought it to me, I
began to think about coffee.
Why did God give us coffee?
Then my mind went back to'
my grandfather, whose great gift
to me was a love of coffee. No-
body loved coffee more.
I remember one of his favorite
quotes: "You can always tell a
man by the coffee he drinks."
Anathema to my grandfather
was the idea of instant coffee. No
man, in his opinion, would ever
drink anything of the kind.
"If a man would drink instant
coffee," my grandfather perked,
"there's no telling what else he
would do. Never trust a man
who drinks instant coffee."
Making coffee was an art form


to my grandfather. There was a
right way and a wrong way to
make coffee, and he always in-
sisted on the right way.
Of course, the right way was
.the way he made coffee.
In grandfather's kitchen was
an old wood-burning cook stove.
My grandmother cooked meals
on this ancient apparatus for
more than 50 years. Sure, she
eventually got an electric stove,
.but it was more for show than
anything else.
On this old-fashioned stove,
my grandfather brewed his fa-
mous mud broth. He never al-
lowed my grandmother to make
the brew; it was his job, which
he. took very seriously.
Once for his birthday, we all
chipped in and bought him an
electric coffee pot. I had never
seen my grandfather so mad.
When he saw what it was, he
would not even take it out of the
box.
He had strong ideas about cof-
fee and how it should be brewed,
and woe be to the person who
contradicted his ideas.
Grandfather always kept a
fire in the old wood cook stove,
and on the back of the stove he
kept his coffee pot, a large two-
gallon tin coffee pot, one of those
old-fashioned percolators long
since gone out of style. The coffee
was always on, and no matter
when you stopped in to see him,
he always had "fresh" coffee
brewing.
When I say "fresh" I need to
explain. Actually, the coffee was
only fresh on Sunday. On Satur-
day night, he routinely emptied
the coffee pot and prepared fresh


coffee for Sunday morning.
He had an old coffee grinder'
and ground the coffee beans on
Saturday night. He put some
other things in the coffee I have
never figured out.
One thing I know he put in
was a crushed eggshell. What it
ever did to his coffee I have no
idea, but grandfather was sure it
was an important ingredient.
The freshly ground coffee
beans were put in the pot, and
the pot was filled with fresh wa-
ter and set on the back of the
stove to slowly perk.
This coffee would last the en-
tire week. The coffee was so
strong on Sunday that if it didn't
wake you in the morning, you
were dead.
In fact, cousin Ernie died on a
Sunday afternoon, so my grand-
father tells the story, and one sip
of his black coffee roused him
and he lived seven more years,
which was unfortunate for
grandfather, as he had to sup-
port him.
Before retiring each evening,
my grandfather took care of his
coffee. He would freshly grind a
few coffee beans, sprinkle it on
top of the old coffee grounds, and
then add a newly crushed egg-
shell. Then he would refill the
coffee pot with water.
His coffee percolated 24/7 and
by Saturday, it was so strong
you needed a half-cup of sugar
just to drink one cup. It was
thick enough to use as syrup on
your pancakes, but so strong, it
dissolved your pancakes before
you could eat them.
My grandmother once tried
washing the coffee pot. When my


grandfather saw hey, he became
furious.
"Never wash that coffee pot,"
he spouted. "You'll ruin its char-
acter, and a coffee pot needs a lot
of character to make good cof-
fee."
When my grandfather died, I
looked at his old black coffee pot
and discovered two things. One,
the original color was blue. And
two, although it was originally a,
two-gallon pot, it only could take
three quarts of water. The "char-
acter" so important to my grand-
father, had built up so much
over the years its capacity was
diminished.
In pondering my grandfather,.
I thought about my Heavenly
Father and His gifts.
The Bible puts it this way,
"Every good gift and every per-
fect gift is from above, and
cometh down from the Father of
lights, with whom is no variable-
ness, neither shadow ofturning."
(James 1:17 KJV)..
I really don't know why God
gave us coffee, but I do know
God's character is of such a na-
ture that it never diminishes His
ability to bless me each day.

Savoring the Fresent
The pace of modern life is truly dizzying. And
when we combine this frenetic pace with the fact
that most of us have too much going on in our lives,
S" it is no wonder that we rarely savor the present
moment. To make matters even worse, we spend
/- most of our time ruminating about the past and
.,, planning for the future, and thus, we ignore the
Only time that is truly here, i.e., the present. The
past is gone; it no longer exists. The future is not
.yet here; it is just as illusory as the past. The only
time that truly exists is the present moment, this
slender knife-edge between the past and the
future. And unfortunately, we too often spoil this
4.- :.'" wonderful moment by infusing it with recollections
of the past or anticipation of what is to come. So,
how does one go about savoring the present? First,
Slow down. Second, be mindful of what you are
doing or feeling.' Become totally absorbed in what
you are doing, and do just one thing, at a time.
Finally, share your experience with someone.


'Go, eat your bread with enjoyment,
and drink your wine with a merry heart;
for God has already approved what you
do.
