$1.2 Billion School Budget Approved


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer

The Polk County School Board approved its
205-2006 budget on Tuesday.
The $1.2 billion budget passed with no
conment during the public hearing.
The largest sources of funds will be from
state and local revenue, each totaling more
than $420 million.
Leftover ftnds from last year, totaling
around $240 million, are also included in the
budget.
Teachers' salaries are the largest expendi-
ture at roughly $410 million.
Facilities acquisition and construction
make up another large portion of the budget
at about $280 million.
The school budget has grown significantly
over the last five years.


The proposed budget for this year is 62 per-
cent larger than the 2001-2002 budget of
about $760 million, and is 13 percent larger
than last year's $1.1 billion budget.
The millage rate imposed by the School
Board has decreased .128 mills from 8.206
mills to 8.087 mills due to state mandates.
The new millage rate is the maximum
allowed by the state.
The budget is available to the public on the
School Board's web site at www.polk-fl.net.
Click on "District Offices" and then "Business
Services Division."
In addition to approving the budget, the
School Board recognized Avatar Properties,
Inc., which donated a 38-acre site for building
a new school.
The site exceeds $2 million value, and
Avatar is looking at another site to donate to
the school system.
The School Board also recognized Polk


County students who were winners at the
FFA State Convention at Keys Technical
Institute.
In their personal reports, several of the
board members spoke about Hurricane
Katrina and its impact on Polk County
schools.
More than 100 students have matriculated
into Polk County from the devastated areas.
Vice Chairwoman Hazel Sellers thanked
fellow board Member Frank O'Reilly for his
work toward including school financing in the
process of approving new housing develop-
ments.
Previously, only utilities such as water
management and sewage were taken into con-
sideration when determining if the county
could afford the new growth.
Mrs. Sellers quoted O'Reilly as saying,
"Let's bring schools up to the level of sewers."


City Makes Fire Plans To Insure

Adequate Main St. Water Supply


The three city 'department heads who
share responsibility for getting water onto a
fire are cooperating to insure that in any
future downtown fires, there will be 3,000
gallons per minute available to firefighters,
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge told the city
commission.
Water for firefighting is a responsibility
shared by the water department, which can
step up the volume of water going into the
system; the public works department, which
installs: ard maintains fire hydrants; and the


fire department.
After the June 6 fire that destroyed the old
Tate-Phillips Hardware and Ritz Theater
buildings on Main Street, there was tension
between the three departments.
Fire Chief Jay Robinson said he was not
able to get the 3,000 gallons per minute that
is the industry standard for fighting a major
fire, while a consultant created a computer
model that showed there should have been
that much water available at the fire scene.
When the three departments teamed up in


a simulation drill, setting up two fire trucks
in the area of the fire, the system was not
able to produce the 3,000 gallons per minute.
The three department heads agreed that if
water were pumped from hydrants a block or
two away from the fire scene, the volume
would be greater.
The city will test the hydrants to insure
that they are working at capacity, and will
pre-plan fire response to insure that an ade-
quate supply of water can be delivered to a
fire, DeLegge said.

After listening to nearly four
hours of often acrimonious and
sometimes emotional debate
Thursday night, Polk County
commissioners voted 4-to-i to
raise taxes in unincorporated
areas of the county by 22.6 per-
cent.
The increase within the city
limits will be 12.9 percent.
Unlike the first public hearing
on the tax increases held a week
earlier, when the crowd over-
flowed into the lobby, the audi-
ence for the second hearing didn't
quite fill the meeting room.
A number of opponents to the
increases threatened to seek to
recall the four commissioners
who voted to raise taxes: Jack
Myers, Bob English, Paul Senft
and Sam Johnson. Some urged
them to leave Polk County.
Randy Wilkinson, the only
commissioner to vote against the
taxes, was commended by the
opponents.
Most of the dozens of speakers
were from unincorporated areas
of the county, which will be hit
hardest by the tax increases.
That is because the Municipal
Services Taxing Unit levies for
parks and recreation and for
libraries will be imposed only in
unincorporated areas, because
cities already are supporting
those services with city taxes.
Many speakers were critical of
the MSTU taxes because they are
imposed only in unincorporated
areas.
Opponents, ranging in age
from a high school junior to
retirees, said they cannot afford


A final public hearing on
Bartow's city budget and ad val-
orem property tax rate for 2005-
06 will be held at tonight's city
commission meeting.
The budget maintains the pre-
sent property tax rate of 4.5 mills
($4.50 per $1,000 of taxable prop-
erty value).
The budget is just over $62
million, including transfers from
one fund to another.
The commission will hold a
work session at 5:30 p.m. at city
hall, and will reconvene for its
regular business meeting at 6:30.
Other items on the agenda:
Consideration of taking a
position on the announced plans
of the Cedar Trail landfill owners
to apply for a state permit to
accept "commercial garbage" for
disposal at the facility, located on
E.F. Griffin Road.
Consideration of an increase
in fees for use of city recreational


to pay the increases, and accused
the commission of raising taxes
for unimportant purposes.
Some called for higher impact
fees on new construction.
One opponent said that the
Polk County school board and
county commissions in other
counties have reduced millage
rates because of rising tax rolls.
Some criticized the commis-
sion for large pay raises given the
county manager and the county
attorney.
Proponents said the higher
taxes are needed to improve the
quality of life for present resi-
dents and to attract new industry.
For the first three hours, audi-
ence comment was about 10-to-1
in opposition to the new taxes.
But when the hearing turned
specifically to the parks and
recreation tax, the tide turned.
Among the proponents were
youngsters and leaders in youth
sports programs.
By the time the hearing got to
the library tax, only two people
spoke: one for, one against.
Speakers who spoke against
the increases were met with loud
applause, while those who sup-
ported them got lighter applause.
Lynn Breidenbach, dressed as
a Colonial, introduced .a bit of
humor by announcing that oppo-
nents to the tax had delivered
more than 400 pounds of tea and
more than 1,600 teabags to the
lobby of the county administra-
tion building, reminiscent of the
Boston Tea Party.
A speaker with a strong
British accent drew laughter from
the crowd when he said he didn't
understand the reference to tea.
Another speaker told the com-


facilities. Most of the fees would
be increased by 10 to 20 percent.
The fee for use of the Bartow
Civic Center pool would be
tripled, from $1 to $3.
Consideration of 'raising
commissioners' salaries.
A presentation on the state's
revolving fund loan program.
Consideration of a zoning
board recommendation that the
city sell to Curtis Schley a parcel
of land adjoining his yard on
South Broadway just south of
Floral Avenue Elementary
School.
Appointment of the city's vot-
ing delegate to the National
League of Cities convention.
Discussion of appointments
to the zoning board of adjust-
ment, the code enforcement
board, and the building and hous-
ing appeals board.
Proclamations designating
Sept. 25 to 31 as Race Equality


missioners: "I wouldn't have any
of your jobs for all the tea Lynn
brought here tonight."
While several speakers said
the commission caters to develop-
ers, some commended commis-
sioners for the 400-plus percent
increase in impact fees for schools
which the commission imposed
one day earlier.
Responding to threats to
defeat or even recall commission-
ers who supported the increases,
Gene Engle, a developer and civic
leader, said there are voters who
will support commissioners for
raising taxes.
"I admire you for putting what
is best for Polk County ahead of
your personal interests," he said.
The MSTU taxes are imposed
only in unincorporated areas
because city dwellers already
have adequate facilities paid for
with municipal taxes, he said.
Eric Allen, chairman of the
Polk County Republican
Executive Committee, told the
committee that the committee
voted to urge the all-Republican
county commission not to
increase the taxes.
He said the Polk Vision report
cites a $372 million "infrastruc-
ture deficit," while County Mgr.
Mike Herr said the deficit is $600
million.
He suggested that the budget
increase be limited to three per-
cent.
The new county budget
includes a one-mill ad valorem
property tax increase on all prop-
erty in the county to pay for road
improvements. That will be paid

welcoming visitors to Bartow. The Chamber's First Mates program


By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor

Visitors to Bartow will find
friendly faces at the city's new
welcome center, but not in a new
building.
Borrowing a concept from the
Central Florida Visitors and
Convention Bureau (VCB), the
Greater Bartow Chamber of
Commerce has revamped its
First Mate volunteer program to
create the Diplomats. These vol-
unteers will staff a welcome cen-
ter at the Chamber office, answer
the phone, fill brochure racks,
keep tourist information up-to-
date, and greet and help visitors.
For the past 10 years or so, the
First Mates have been primarily
responsible for collating, labeling
and distributing the Chamber's
monthly newsletter.
Neal Duncan, the Chamber's
special events coordinator, heads
up the new Diplomat program.


Before coming to work at the
Bartow Chamber, Duncan
worked at VCB and saw first
hand the success of its Polk DOTs
(Diplomats of Tourism). With
VCB's blessing, the Bartow
Chamber has specialized the pro-
gram to its needs.
Bartow's Welcome Center will
be staffed by volunteers 40 hours
a week. Diplomats spread the
work in 10 shifts a week, Monday
through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 1
p.m. and 1 to 5 p.m.
Some Diplomats will work in
the front office, while others con-
tinue to help with the newsletter,
special projects and events. Each
volunteer receives a name badge
and light khaki shirt with a pur-
ple Chamber logo to wear at the
welcome center and at events.
Duncan hopes to add special
trips and activities in the future.
The new program's volunteers
include Ortelle Bowden, Lavelle
Churchwell, Marylee Conley,


Jack E. Davis, Carolyn Gorman,
Mary C. Henderson, Ilene Hinds,
Mickey Hogan, Kitty Hunt, Bill
Jencowski, Issie Jencowski,
Helen Knight, Jean Long, Pete
Parker, Shirley Pittenger, Jeanne
Scott, Rose Marie Sherwood,
Rhoda Whitten, and Frances
Williams.
The Chamber held an orienta-
tion luncheon for volunteers in
July to learn about the new
duties and sign up for shifts.
Bartow's Crispers Restaurant
didn't let them go hungry, provid-
ing wraps, salads and cookies for
the event.
The Chamber is accepting
applications for additional
Diplomats. Duncan would like to
see the program expand, so that
the work load can be spread out,
especially with a busy time of
year approaching for residents
and winter visitors.

paign celebrated in October to
raise awareness of substance
abuse and encourage communi-

agency's 20th anniversary,
DPRC plans to show the world
how serious our community is
about keeping its citizens safe
and healthy by creating the "
Longest Awareness Ribbon" for a
Guinness World Record to pro-
mote drug prevention education.
The Guinness record attempt

Florida's Chief Financial Offi-
cer Tom Gallagher is warning
Floridians to be on the lookout
for anew identity-theft scheme.
In the scheme a .victim re-
ceives a phone call from someone
claiming to be a local court
worker -who tells the victim they
failed to report for jury duty.
To further put the victim off-
guard, they may say an arrest
warrant has been issued. When
the victim says they never re-
ceived a jury duty notice, the
scammer asks for personal infor-
mation to cheqk their records.

one'who calls asking for personal
information," said Gallagher.
"No legitimate business would
ask for such information by
phone."
This latest identity theft
scheme has-, already been re-
ported in Minhigan, Ohio, Texas,
Arizona. Illioibs,,;Pennsylvania,
Minnesota, Oregonifand 'Wash-
ington state.
Gallagher said this scheme
seems to be. a, spin-off of one. in
which 'a caller or an e-mailer
poses as an employee of a finan-
cial instituitioa"requesting infor-
mationi to re-activate a victim's


bank account.
Gallagher has echoed con-
cerns from Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles Bronson that
scammers may set up fake chari-
ties to prey on people's sympathy
for victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Gallagher offered these tips to
Floridians:
Do not give your personal
information to a telephone or e-
mail solicitor.
Only give to disaster relief
charities you know are reliable
and beware of ".-'p.-cat" names
that sound like.reputable chari-
ties. "" ""-' "* "* : :. "1 "
Make checks payable to the
charitable organization and not
to an individual collecting a do-
nation.
Carry only a few credit
cards with you..
*" Shred all': credit .card re-
ceipts, and solicitations, can,
called checks and financial docu-.
ments before throwing them
away.
Don't leave, outgoing, mail in
your mailbox overnight.
Check your credit report at
least twice a year.

Suspect Arrested Following

Theft of PCSO Patrol Car


A 29-year-old man was ar-
rested early yesterday morning
after stealing a Polk County
Sheriffs Office patrol car and
leading deputies on a pursuit.
George Shaw faces charges of
escape, grand theft auto, felony
fleeing to elude, outstanding
warrant charges for grand theft
auto, and has additional traffic
charges pending.
The charges .stem from inci-
dent that occurred Tuesday
night after PCSO Deputy
Shaughn Hurt and Deputy
Trainee Jeremy Cliett conducted
a traffic stop on Shaw in the
area of Highway 27 North and
17B, north of Lake Wales.
Shaw was arrested at that
time on outstanding warrants
for grand theft auto. He was
handcuffed and placed into the
back of the patrol vehicle, PCSO
spokeswoman Michal Shanley
said.
At around 11 p.m., as depu-
ties were completing an inven-
tory of Shaw's vehicle, Shaw
managed to pull his handcuffs in
front of his body and escape from
the back seat.
He then took off in the patrol
car, Shanley said.
Additional patrol deputies, as-
sisted by the PCSO air unit, re-
sponded to locate and apprehend
the fleeing man.
After being spotted in an in-
dustrial park near Jan Phyl Vil-
lage, Shaw drove to the area of
Spirit Lake Road and CR 540,
and finally into the Queens Cove
subdivision.


George Shaw
Shortly after midnight, Dep-
uty Kenny Hill, attempting to
stop the fleeing felon, intention-
ally rammed the stolen vehicle
with his patrol car, causing the
stolen vehicle to spin, and Dep-
uty Hill's vehicle to strike a
nearby garage of a residence.
Captain Tim Holleyman fur-
ther disabled the stolen patrol
car by ramming the front end of
the vehicle.
Deputy Hill was treated and
released from Winter Haven
Hospital for an injured ankle.
Shaw complained of aches
and pains, and was taken to
Winter Haven Hospital for medi-
cal clearance prior to being re-
leased back into PCSO custody,
and he was booked into the Polk
County Jail.
There were no other injuries,
Shanley said.
The incident is still under in-
vestigation.

Survival Advice


, ,r America's Airlines


The oi, *.g really new about the
b ~ r c-, i'ii,, of. Delta Air Lines and
Nc' A'idines last week is that two
major carriers filed on the same day.
Bankr," : *. !, whichh once .signaled the
almost .. t e demise of a corporation, has
become ,- n'; a way of life for the air-
lines. .
hil. ;om.m go belly"up. many go. in and
out of bankruptcy e ery fe; 'years, coming
back to ly anotherr day. Somnetines, as
seems to be fhe case with Delta and
Northwest, business continues as usual.
Nobody 'in the airline industry ever
asked us for our advice, and it seems like-
ly nobody ever vill. But just in case they
should, 1-, :'&s 'Vhat we would offer:
Chnrge enough money for every flight
to make 'a rTeasonable profit. To quote a
retired banker of our acquaintance: When
you're losing money on every'sale, you're,
not going to make it up on volume. ,
Charge..every passenger his or her fair,
share. Sure, it may be necessary to do some
last minute discounting to sell the last few
unfilled seats, but this crazy system under
which every third passenger pays a differ-
ent rate builds ill will. Sure, it's nice if
you're the passenger who beats the sys-
tem; but it lacks simple fairness. If service
stations charged different prices to every
customer, based on the hour of the day, the'
day of the week, or the number of days
since his last fill-up, customers would be
irate.
With the extra money, you would
make by operating every flight at a profit,.
take out a row or two of seats. Passengers
with a touch of claustrophobia are in trou-
ble on today's airlines.
If you. won't take out enough seats to
give passengers a few- extra inches to
stretch their legs, at least fix the seats so
they don't recline. Better that everyone
ride in the upright po-ition than that some
passengers endure other passengers who

A9h-


recline into the precious few inches of leg
room available to them.
Charge for meals and soft drinks if
you must, but make the food worth the
price. "Airline food" is an oxymoron.
And serve it cheerfully. Cabin atten-
dants should carry enough one-dollar bills
to make change on the spot, rather than
making passengers feel "like they are
imposing on their hospitality...
Pay realistic salaries. It won't be easy
after paying wages that are out of sight for
years. Better to have a well-paid job than to
be laid off from an over-paid job. Most of
the workforce understands that 100 per-
cent of nothing is nothing.
Insist on courtesy at every step of the
trip. A friendly .greeting from the flight
attendant won't undo slow and/or surly
service at the check-in counter.
*, Insist that the airport employees show
the same level of courtesy. After all, with-
out the airlines, they wouldn't have jobs.
Security screeners are not your employees,
but they can put the passengers in a bad
frame of mind before they board your air-
planes, and then it becomes your problem.-
Many of these suggestions require
money, or involve risk-taking. Start with
courtesy, which is free. Return to thedays
when flight attendants were a model for
hospitality and courtesy.

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

Reference to God: A Co'mpromise


Once again a federal judge has
ruled that if ours truly is "one
nation under God," we've got to
keep it a secret.
(Incidentally, there is no
comma after "nation." Remember
that; it could be on the final
exam.)
A federal judge in California
(where else?) has ruled in favor of
an avowed atheist who filed suit
on behalf of "three unnamed chil-
dren and their parents," after the
court previously ruled he could
not file suit on behalf of his
daughter because his wife had
legal custody.
How convenient that he now
has found "three unnamed chil-
dren and their parents" who are
aggrieved over reciting the
pledge.
The fact is, I doubt that many
elementary school students (and
even a lot of high school students


and adults) could accurately
define every word in the pledge.
Let's start with the word
"pledge" itself. You figure your
average kindergartener under-
stands the significance?
And "allegiance." That's not
exactly a grammar school word.
"Republic?" It is probably only
because I majored in government
that I can tell you the difference
between a republic and a' pure
democracy. (Ours is a democratic
republic, if that helps muddy the
academic waters; and neither
word has anything to do with
political parties.)
And then there's "indivisible."
I'd lay heavy odds that at least
until middle school, most kids
would tell you the "indivisible"
means that you can't be seen.
Every now and then, you'll
read a story about a teacher who
had her students write out the


Pledge of Allegiance. The phonet-
ic spellings cone out with things
like "United Snakes of A ericaa"
The kids are' ri(ling pounds,
not making a d,Iily pledge of feal-
ty.
The words of ihe Pledge of
Allegiance hav<., meaning, of
course, but only if you reflect,
however briefly, on their mean-
ing. Like grace before meals, the
words tend to flow with little
reflection on the message.
The God I worship, in addition
(I hope) to having a real sense of
humor, is too powerful to be
destroyed, or even bruised, by
the removal of His Name from
the Pledge of Allegiance, or the
banning of prayer at the start of a
football game.
Our kids. will continue to be
reasonably patriotic, I suspect,
whether ours is "one nation
under God," or simply "one


nation, indivisible."
And I feel sure that ACLu
lawyers will continue to accept
payment in greenbacks embla-
zoned with the words "In God
We Trust," even if they don't.
This is a personal thing with
me, and I don't expect everyone
to agree:
There are many other offensive
words which I can (and occasion-
ally do) use in a variety of cre-
ative ways, without ever bringing
God's name into the discourse.
I would gladly eliminate
"under God" from the Pledge of
Allegiance as a gesture of
Freedom of (or from) Religion if
the courts would find that the
taking of God's name in vain in
public places is not a protected
expression of Freedom of Speech.

OUR READERS SAY

A Place Where Everybody Knows Your Name


BARTOW I know a place
where everybody knows your
name.
I can't help but recall the
theme song from the hit televi-
sion show, Cheers, every time I
walk into Ace Hardware and K-T
Pharmacy in Bartow. Not only do
I remember the song, but I
remember the "good old days"
when you entered the local drug
store, hardware store, and gro-
cery, and everybody knew you by
name. We were customers, and
the goal 'of the clerks and man-
agement was to keep the cus-
tomer happy.


What a joy it is to relive those
days when I shop at Ace and K-T
Pharmacy. For 27 years I have
done business with K-T, so it is no
surprise to be treated as family by
John, Steve, Mark and Linda.
Sometimes I feel that it is their
caring attitude and not the medi-
cine that makes me feel better.
Two years ago Ace Hardware
opened its doors at 1350 East
Church St. in Bartow. From the
first visit when I met. Trina, the
owner of the store, I knew it was
the place for me. Her personality
and willingness to help a "hard-
ware-challenged" customer find


what was needed was surprising
and wonderful. It had been a long
time since I had received that
kind of assistance when I
shopped. .
The hurricanes last year
emphasized how much the folks
at Ace care about us, their cus-
tomers. They worked around the
clock to help us get much needed
supplies: generators, plywood,
flashlights, impossible-to-find
batteries, etc. I shall never forget
how hard they worked to keep
their worried customers happy.
If you have not met the people
at Ace, I invite you to just stop by


and introduce yourself to Trina,
Joannie, Leta, Shannon, Bobby,
Bill, Jennifer, Lee and Keith. Take
a few minutes to browse while
you munch on a cookie from their
cookie jar which is sitting on the
check-out counter. Before long
you, too, will know a place
"where everybody knows your
name."
Cheers and thank you to the
folks at Ace Hardware and K-T
Pharmacy.

CAROLYN GORMAN


BARTOW -- Which way is
Bartow going to grow in the
future? The 'first steps will be
decided at the city planning com-
mission meeting of Sept. 26, at
5:30 p.m. in the city hall commis-
sion room. At this meeting this
important board will either step
along the ways of the past or step
out boldly and lead toward
"Smart Grow Bartow."
During the past year, the city
planning department, the plan-
ning commission, and the elected
city commissioners have set new
rules for development in the rural
areas of Bartow. They have creat-
ed two new zoning levels; Rural
Estate 1 (one dwelling per acre),
and Rural Estate 2 (two dwellings
per acre). With the commission-
ers adopting these new levels for
the rural area, they will give pre-
sent and future generations of
Bartow something to be proud of.
On Sept. 26, the planning com-
mission will be presented their


first opportunity to enact these
new levels of zoning.
The city planning department
has had its chance and from the
way the zoning is being present-
ed at these important
meetings, nothing has *
changed from the old
ways of doing business.
The developer says, "This
is what I want," and he
gets it.
We hope the planning
commission will act dif-
ferently, and apply the
new Rural Estate 1 zon-
ing. The area in question
at this meeting is on E.F.
Griffin Road; this area is Av
mostly rural with large
tracts, developed one
acre per home or larger.
By enacting the Rural
Estate 1 zoning the, plan-
ning commission would
be forwarding to the city
commissioners their first


new zoning for "Smart Grow meeting at city hall. They need
Bartow." our encouragement.
Let's all support our commis-
sioners and give them a call, or T. FRANKLIN BLACK
better yet attend the Sept. 26

Impact fees adopted by the
Bartow city commission will add
about $5,000 to the price of a
new home, Gene Boles, the city's
impact fee consultant from the
University of Florida, told the
city commission.
On Tuesday night, the com-
mission adopted two more im-
pact fees to pay for roads and for
public buildings. A few weeks
ago, the commission adopted a
fee to pay for recreational facili-
ties.
For years the city has had wa-
ter and sewer impact fees.
Impact fees are imposed on
new construction to help pay for
new public facilities that are
made necessary by growth.
Boles told the commission
that Bartow's impact fees are
comparable with those imposed
by other cities in Polk County.
The city's new impact fee for
roads is in addition to the one
imposed by the county commis-
sion for county roads, he said.
The city's fee will be used only
for city streets.
The public facilities fee will be
collected to pay for land and for
facilities like city hall and police
and fire stations.
Both of the new fees were
adopted by unanimous vote of
the city commission and without
comment from the public at a
public hearing.
At the request of the Polk
County Builders Assn., the city
delayed the effective date of the
new impact fees until Nov. 1.
The commission also adopted
a budget of $54,315,632 (before
inter-fund transfers) for the fis-
cal year that begins on Oct. 1. It


Mike McMillan, director of
System Integration for DSM, a
Lakeland-based company that
specializes 'in systems integra-
tion and data recovery, will pre-
sent a talk at the University of
South Florida Lakeland's
monthly IT Colloquium on
Wednesday, Sept. 21, at noon.
At the meeting, he will dis-
cuss the need for these specific
technologies today and where
much of the system integration
technology is expected to go in
the future.
McMillan recently worked on
a project where data recovery
technology enabled him to re-
cover 95 percent of a company's
data lost during the June 2005
fire that spread through Bar-
tow's historic downtown district.
During the talk, he also will
share what he has learned
through 18 years of experience
in the information technology
field that includes work with the
US Navy's multimillion dollar
air traffic control system, the


maintains the present ad valo-
rem property tax levy of 4.5
mills. That equates to $4.50 per
$1,000 of taxable property value.
Gerald Cochran, speaking at a
public hearing, was critical of
the budget, and said the commis-
sion should adopt the "roll-back
rate" for property taxes, the rate
that would produce the same
amount of revenue as last year.
Cochran also announced his'
annual "evaluations" of city offi-
cials: minus-10 for the city man-
ager, plus-5 for the city auditor
and city attorney, and plus-8 for
the city clerk. Cochran said next
year he will give evaluations to
the commissioners, too.
The commission also:
Noted City Mgr. Joseph J.
DeLegge's report that the city is
meeting with engineers to design
the secondary entrance road to
Bartow Regional Medical Cen-
ter, and will solve drainage prob-
lems on Park Avenue at the
same time. His report came in
response to urging from Al
Snapp that the city move for,
ward with the hospital road,
which will be an extension of
Wilson Avenue.
Accepted the Community
Redevelopment Agency budget of
$852,000.
Accepted a school board site
selection committee's recommen-
dation that a new elementary
school be built between U.S.
Highway 98 and E.F. Griffin
Road, a little south of Catfish
Country restaurant.
Passed on final reading an
ordinance authorizing the city to
borrow up to $3 million to build
the new Carver Recreation Cen-


AN/TPX-42V12.

ings.

pealing a decision of the city's
planning director or building of-
ficial be refunded if the decision
is reversed by the appeal board.

Polk Commission Raises Tax


(Continued from Page 1)
on property within in cities as
well as in unincorporated areas.
It establishes MSTUs in the
unincorporated areas of the coun-
ty, with a half-mill tax for parks
and recreation and a quarter-mill
for libraries. The MSTU levies
were pared down at the first pub-
lic hearing; the original proposals
were three-quarters of a.mill for
parks and recreation and a half-
mill for libraries.
The commission's, action came
in large part in response to the
Polk Vision process, which called
for the county to close an "infra-
structure gap," particularly
roads, libraries, and parks and
other recreational facilities.
After the four-hour public
hearing, Wilkinson presented an
alternative funding plan. He
urged the commission to cut back
taxes by a quarter-mill or half-
mill.
He also defended past commis-
sions against claims that they
hadn't raised taxes to meet
needs. He said there were 20 tax
increases in the past 18 years.
While opposing his colleagues
on the taxing plans, he urged
them to vote *their convictions
and -not to be influenced by
threats of recall or opposition at


their next election.
County government operating
expenses have increased by 13.2
percent, he said. He suggested a
limit of six percent, which he said
would free up enough money to
cover the MSTU levies.
"You know there are some
things you can do," he said.
Senft said that some road
right-of-way costs have doubled
in the past three years, and gas
tax increases I.Fv .. not been
enough to cover .-iat cost.
"Cost of right-ofway is out of
control," he said.
The county has fewer employ-
ees than it did five years ago, he
said.
Senft said he didn't see a way
to cut costs enough to meet the
county's needs.
He said he wished the county
had done more on impact fees in
prior years.
"Growth will be paying for
itself from now on," he said.
English said the proposed
budget "is the only rational way"
the commission can meet Polk's
needs. He recalled that the Polk
Vision process stressed the need
to close the "infrastructure gap."
Of the budget, he said, "It's the
first year of a 10-year plan to dig
us out of a hole.
"We are still the best place in


Central Florida to live when it
comes to taxes," he said.
Myers said some impact fees
should have been imposed 20
years ago.
Johnson acknowledged that
tax increases create "strong feel-
ings."
The impact on most people
"who raised a big stink" will be
about $20, he said.
"This can change Polk
County," Johnson said. "This is
the only true, viable plan."
After an hour-and-a-quarter of
discussion among themselves,
the commission voted 4-to-I to
approve the taxes, with
Wilkinson voting "no."
For property within munici-
palities, the millage will go from
7.727 to 8.727 mills, while for
property in unincorporated areas
it will be 9.477, including the
MSTU levies.
A mill is equal $1 in tax for
each $1,000 in taxable property
value. On a $100,000 piece of
commercial property, the tax will
be $872.70 in cities, $947.70 in
unincorporated areas.
On a $100,000 house with
$25,000 homestead exemption,
the tax will be $654.53 within
cities, $710.78 in unincorporated
areas.

Fishery Summit

Set In Sebring


A major effort to reorganize
the way Florida menages its
freshwater fisheries :s the topic
of a unique summit leing hosted
in Sebring by the Ylorida Fish
and Wildlife Consevation Com-
mission (FWC).
The Sebring meeting will take
place on Saturday evening, Sept.
24, at 6:30 p.m., it the Sebring
Civic Center, 355 West Center
Ave.
Through this summit, the
FWC is inviting stakeholders to
organize and team with the
agency to help design and imple-
ment management plans that
will have a major effect on Flori-
da's freshwater fisheries.
Anyone interested in the fu-
ture of freshwater resources in
Florida is encouraged to attend
this important interaction with
FWC fishery professionals.
"An online survey recently
conducted by the Division of
Freshwater Fisheries Manage-
ment was the first step in estab-
lishing communications with an-
glers and other resource users,
enabling us to document con-
cerns and determine attitudes
about our future direction," said
Dennis Renfro, FWC Summit co-
ordinator.


The response to the survey
was overwhelming with over
1,500 constituents participating.
Results from this survey were
used to shape the format and
content of six summits soon to be
held in various locations around
the state where survey responses
were-greatest.
"In the past, stakeholders
gave input and FWC staff imple-
mented a plan., In the new proc-
ess stakeholders will partner
with the agency to develop and
implement plans jointly," said
Dave McElveen, FWC Planning
coordinator.
Sebring hosts the first of six
zone meetings throughout the
state that start in September
and continuing through Janu-
ary. All meetings are scheduled
from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

Bartow Blanks Bolts, 30-0


By JEFF THORNBURG
Friday night at Bartow Me-
morial Stadium, the Bartow Yel-
low Jackets shut out a scrappy
Ridge Community squad; 30-0,
improving their record to 3-1 and
an even 1-1 in district play.
Junior quarterback Devarious
Cook, the county's leading pas-
ser, threw two touchdowns and
posted 105 passing yards, while
senior running back Ryan Col-
son scored a touchdown and
rushed for 103 yards on 15 car-
ries.
The versatile Alfrederick
Jones scored two touchdowns,
and recovered a fumble.
The Yellow Jacket defense
dominated first-year school
Ridge.
The eight first-half offensive
possessions for the Bolts ended
with four punts, two fumbles, a
safety, arid halftime.
Ridge was held to just under
100 yards of total offense.
.The Bolts fall to 1-3 overall
and 0-1 in the district.
Bartow scored in the first 20
seconds of the game.
Ridge took the opening kick-
off, and started on their own 14,
yard-line.
Hard-hitting Jacket defensive
back Jack Edmund recovered a
Ridge fumble on their first offen-
sive play, and then on Bartow's
first play, Cook connected with
Jones on a 15-yard touchdown
pass.
Colson capped a 44-yard
Jacket scoring drive with a five-


yard run around the right side,
breaking three tackles on his
way to the corner of the/ end
zone.
Jones completed the first half
of Jacket-scoring with a pound-
ing 44-yard run following a
safety, when the Ridge punter
was trapped in the end zone.
The second half saw more of
the sam-e.
Five Ridge possessions were
stopped by the Bartow defense,
forcing two more punts, an inter-
ception by Lamar Reese, a fum-
ble recovery by Chris Broadhead,
and a turnover on downs.
Bartow's final touchdown was
a seven-yard pass from Cook to
,tight end Steven Wesley, mid-
way through the fourth quarter.
The night was not ideal for
the Yellow Jackets. Bartow com-
mitted three turnovers and were
penalized nine times for 90
yards, including seven flags for
holding.
A new addition to Bartow's
varsity football team is juni:rr
Brent Delph.
A soccer standout, Delph
joined the squad last week at
Auburndale as the team's kicker.
Prior to his arrival, Bartow'
was one of four on extra point
kicks during their first two
games.
Since then, Delph has split
the uprights five consecutive
times, only missing his first at-
tempt.
Delph did attempt a 37-yard
field goal during Fi'iday's game,
which was blocked; however, his


kicking skills filled a missing
piece on the Jacket squad.
Delph is coached by last year's
All-County kicker, Brandon
Pickard, who also'made a suc-
cessful transition from soccer t.o
football at Bartow.
Bartow begins a three-game
road trip on Friday, traveling
south to meet the Hardee Wild-
cats.

Florida FWC Assists Animal

Survivors Of Hurricane Katrina


While deployed in Biloxi,
Miss., Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) law enforcement officers
have taken on the mission of
helping survivors recover from
Hurricane Katrina.
But, in addition to helping the
people, wildlife and pets are also
receiving assistance from FWC.
Officer Jimmy Jordan, from
Alachua County, made a special
run Tuesday morning to the
Wildlife Care and Rescue Center
to deliver 500 pounds of dog food
to Tammi Carson, a volunteer at
the center.
The center was destroyed dur-
ing the storm, and the animals,
had to be moved out to volun-
teers' homes.
"Right now, I have a red-
tailed hawk, three doves and two
crows in small cages in my back
yard, a baby duck in the bath-
tub, a screech owl in my garage
and an assortment of rats, baby
opossums and squirrels in my
living room," Ms. Carson said. "
Many of our cages were de-
stroyed during the hurricane.
I'm just putting them where I
can."
Ms. Carson and her two chil-
dren, Clay, 8, and Chandee, 6,
rode out the storm in Biloxi.
Their house made it through the
storm, but the back yard didn't


fare as well.
"I can't believe I've lost all my
trees. I've been here eight years
and have released so many crit-
ters out here. I can't stand to
come out here. This breaks my
heart," she said.
"It's amazing what you take
for granted. My son has an
iguana and we can't find vegeta-
bles for him. I've been scroung-
ing through garbage looking for
whatever I can find for him. You
just get so used to going to the
store and getting what you need.
In a situation like this, you sim-
ply can't," she said.
"But today, some of my
prayers were answered. I was
still dozing this morning when I
got a phone call from FWC say-
ing they had dog food for me,"
she said. "I asked if they had any
cat food too, since we need that
to feed to some of the animals.
After I hung lip, I went back to
sleep. I bolted up in bed, grabbed
my phone and made sure I had
gotten that call. I thought I was
dreaming. I couldn't believe it.
We need that food so badly."
"Officer Jordan came this
morning and dropped off 10 50-
pound bags. Let me tell you,
there are some happy dogs in the
neighborhood tonight," she said.
In addition to the wildlife
she's caring for, Ms. Carson has


three dogs and she has been
feeding the cats and dogs for
those neighbors who evacuated
before the storm.
Jordan also has been taking
milk to the Carson household
daily. Doctors have instructed
Ms. Carson's daughter to con-
sume dairy products every day.
Jordan ensures she has a con-
stant supply.
"We are trying to get together
volunteers to round up all the
strays in the area too. We have a
big task ahead of us," Ms. Car-
son said. "The Wildlife Care and
Rescue Center is a non-profit or-
ganization, and we need just
about everything from medical
supplies to food and cages as
well as office materials.
"When the center director and
I were going through, the de-
stroyed building, both of us were
in tears. But I told her that we
are going to come back from this.
We're going to get this center up
and running again.
"And it's folks like the FWC
officers who are going to help. I
can't begin to explain what this
donation means to us," she said.
Anyone interested in donating
to the Wildlife Care and Rescue
Center can send donations to
Tammi Carson at P.O. Box 4244,
Biloxi, MS 39531.


FWC Officers Escort Fuel Trucks

For Mississippi Hospital Generators,


With blue lights flashing and
sirens blowing, Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) law enforcement offi-
cers got the tanker truck
through another intersection
with no working lights in Biloxi,
Miss.
FWC officers Billy Giles, from
Perry, and Kevin Larson, from
Jacksonville, helped Jimmy
VanBoskerck, a tanker driver
with Starling Fuel Service in
Jacksonville, maneuver through
traffic to the Memorial Hospital
in Biloxi.
"We're running fuel to the
hospital generators so they can
keep running. Their power isn't
back on yet," Giles said.
The two FWC officers had es-
corted the tanker to Meridian,
Miss., that morning to pick up a
load of diesel and gasoline. When
the truck arrived at the hospital,
Michael Zieman, hospital admin-
istrator, was glad to see it.
"We were crossing our fingers
today," Zieman said. "We were
down to 100 gallons, so we are
happy to see you all. The hospi-
tal generators burn about 225
gallons an hour. Thanks for com-
ing to help. We sure appreciate
it."
The next stop was Singing
River Hospital in Pascagoula,
Miss.
Sonny Freeman, hospital con-
struction craftsman, was on site
when the tanker rolled up. Free-


man, who had lost his house dur-
ing Katrina, was living at the
hospital.
Although the hospital had
just been refueled by another
truck, Freeman thanked the offi-
cers and driver for stopping by to
check on the hospital's situation.
"It sure helps to. know that
people are making sure we stay
up and running," Freeman said.
"We are running our generators
continuously since the power
keeps coming on and off."
According to Lt. Jeff Hudson,
patrol supervisor from the Titus-
ville Field Office, the FWC es-
corts ensure that the tanker
truck gets to its destination and
returns to the command post
compound safely.
"Several FWC officers have
been 'chasing fuel' all over Mis-
sissippi," Hudson said. "We lo-
cate depots that have fuel and
then escort the tanker truck to
get a load. Then two officers (one
in front and one in back of the
truck) escort the tanker to its
destination to make the fuel
drops. Officers Kevin Hansen'
and Herb Fererking have been
escorting the trucks to four area
hospitals to keep them powered
up and running," Hudson said.
"Officer Hansen found fuel all
over Mississippi. He's traveled to
the Meridian Naval Air Station,
Camp Shelby, and several other
depots. In addition to the hospi-
tals, FWC has also delivered fuel


to the county maintenance build-'
ing in Purvis, Miss., and an as-
sisted living facility that. was
within two hours of running
completely out of diesel for their
generators," Hudson said.
According to Dave Walker,
the "fuel boss" who works for B-
Line Carriers out of Brooksville,
"We're providing support to eve-
ryone who is headed out for this
operation. We had 100 vehicles
from Indiana roll in Monday.
They were state troopers, conser-
vation officers, and fire-and-res-
cue units. We made sure that
they had the fuel they needed to
make their destination.
"One of the trucks we have
here can pump from truck to
truck, from truck to tank, from
tank to tank, or from ground to
truck. We also have a small tank
wagon with a 150-foot hose. This
is what we've been using to re-
fuel the 85-foot FWC vessel 'JJ
Brown,' Walker said as he
gassed up FWC vehicles for their
redeployment back to Florida.
The FWC contingent leaving
Tuesday was part of the first
group of officers to deploy to
storm-ravaged Biloxi Aug. 29,.
"I hate to see these guys
leave," Walker said. "I just about
got them all trained. But I am
appreciative of all the support
the FWC officers are providing
to us. It makes the job easier."


AWI Helps Displaced Workers After Hurricane


Volunteers from the Agency
for Workforce Innovation (AWI)
and its workforce partners from
the regional workforce boards
have begun manning self-con-
tained One-Stop Job centers
spread across the hurricane-
trammeled Gulf Coast of Missis-
sippi this week, helping jobless
workers apply for unemployment
compensation and other work-
force, services.
The volunteers are working
with other Florida and Missis-
sippi state agencies to provide
workforce services, including-dis-
aster unemployment assistance
and referrals to humanitarian
and health service agencies.
Destruction in Mississippi,
from Moss Point in the east to
Pass Christian in the west, en-
compasses casinos, hotels, res-
taurants and other businesses
that spanned along Highway 90.
A significant number of busi-
nesses and workers displaced by
the storm are in need of work-
force.services.
"We are providing resources
and on-the-ground assistance to
help the workers of Mississippi
and are very proud of our volun-
teers," said Susan Pareigis, di-
rector of the Agency for Work-
force Innovation. "We will con-
tinue to do everything in our
power to immediately provide re-
lief for those who have been so
devastated by Hurricane Ka-
trina, and our associates and
workforce partners are doing an
outstanding job on-site to help
hurricane victims."
Within the past two weeks,
Agency for Workforce Innovation
volunteers and its workforce
partners from Tampa Bay Work-
Force Alliance, Workforce Cen-


tral Florida and the Suncoast
Workforce Boards'have deployed
and manned mobile one-stop
services in Pascagoula, Ocean
Springs, Bay St. Louis, Pica-
yune, Gulfport and Jackson.
Working closely with employ-
ees of the Mississippi Depart-
ment of Employment, these Flor-
ida volunteers have assisted
Hurricane Katrina victims in fil-
ing for unemployment compensa-
tion and' in accessing other
needed services ;,and
information. Six associates of
AWI's Unemployment Compen-
sation unit are taking claims at
the Jackson Call Center.
Across Florida, Agency for
Workforce Inri'.0 iti.:n staff and
its regional wvorkfforce partners
are assisting Hurricane Katrina
evacuees fr',:nm Louisiana, Missis-
sippi and Alabama with a wide
range of employment and un6m-
ployment asiti-tan'.e and 61her
forms of humanitarian aid.'
Within Florida, assistance i.;

Workforce Boards' One-Stop
Centers.
Evacuees can use the .com-


.puter resource rooms in the Cen-
ters to file unemployment com-
pensation claims and access a
variety of other services.
Displaced workers can apply
for assistance to be provided
from federal agencies and from
their home states, look for tem-
porary work here in Florida, pre-
pare/update resumes, and access

on an ADVERTISED mattress
and pull off ADVERTISED pajamas,
bathes in an ADVERTISED shower,
shaves with an ADVERTISED razor,
brushes his or her teeth with ADVERTISED tooth-

puts on ADVERTISED clothes,
drinks a cup of ADVERTISED coffee,
drives to work in an ADVERTISED car
