City Budget, Tax Rate


Approved by Commission


Bartow's 2005-06 city budget
and property tax rate were
approved by the city commission
Monday night.
Only Gerald Cochran, city gov-
ernment's most vocal critic, com-
mented at a public hearing.
The budget maintains the pre-
sent property tax rate of 4.5 mills
($4.50 per $1,000 of taxable prop-
erty value). Although unchanged,
the tax rate is defined by Florida
law as an increase because it will
bring in 4.12 percent more money
than last year.
The budget is just over $62
million, including transfers from
one fund to another.
Cochran said the property tax
rate is "a little too much," and
called the city's new $45
stormwater tax "highway rob-
bery." He said developers should
pay for the cost of growth, and
that the city should reduce the
number of people on its payroll.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
replied that developers pay
-impact fees to pay for growth, and
that the personnel budget has
been reduced by not filling vacant
positions.
Commissioners also:
Decided, with little discus-
sion, not to increase their salaries
in the coming year.
Deferred until their Oct. 3
meeting a decision on 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.
Approved an increase in fees
for use of city recreational facili-
ties. Most of the fees were
increased by 10 to 20 percent. The
fee for use of the Bartow Civic
Center pool was tripled, from $1
to $3.
Noted DeLegge's report that
he plans to meet with Architect
Ernest Straughn to discuss reno-
vation of the old civic center as a
city hall annex and remodeling of
city hall, and that he wants to
have the city's buildings on North
Mill Avenue remodeled after the
electric department moves to new
quarters at Bartow Municipal
Airport.
Heard Robert Henry ask
police to patrol the Church Street
Historic District for speeders and
"boom boxes," and ask for more
historic-style streetlights.
Noted Dr. Victor Wright's
request that the city consider
making Boulevard Street the pri-
mary access to a planned new
apartment complex to reduce
traffic on Church Street.
Gave preliminary approval
to a zoning board recommenda-
tion that the city sell to Curtis
Schley a parcel of land adjoining
his yard on South Broadway just


south of Floral Avenue
Elementary School.
Named Mayor Leo
Longworth to be the city's voting
delegate to the National League
of Cities convention.
Assigned Commissioners
Rosie Thornburg, Brian Hinton
and Pat Huff to recommend peo-
ple for appointment to the zoning
board of adjustment, the code
enforcement board, and the build-
ing and housing appeals board.
Proclaimed Sept. 25 to 30 as
Race Equality Week, and Oct. 1
as Heart Walk Day.
Passed on final reading ordi-
nances to vacate rights-of-way tor
Nottingham Drive East, and
Boulevard Street west of Hobart
Avenue. The latter closing is to
facilitate construction of an
apartment complex.
Renewed a contract with
Kirk S. Warren for legal services
for the Bartow police department
for $12,000 a year.
Transferred unencumbered
funds to close the books on the
2004-05 fiscal year.
Renewed the city's contract
with the county to provide fire
protection for unincorporated
areas near the city for $87,894,
about $3,000 less than last year
because of property that the city
has annexed.


HIGHWAYS TO TOMORROW, the child care center at the
Dept. of Transportation office in Bartow, held a trike-a-thon to
raise money for St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Director Linda
Cookston organized the event, which is for the pre-K class of 3-
, 4-, and 5-year-olds. Melissa Vasquez, their teacher, said that
last year they raised more than $900. (Staff photos by Brett

Diversity Luncheon Set


A 33-year-old Bartow man was
killed this morning after he was
hit by a car on State Road 60 at
Laurent Ranch Road, east of
Bartow.
According to Florida Highway
Patrol Trooper L.E. Coggins, Jr.,
Andres Pacheco-Munez of 2405
SR 60 East, was lying with a bicy-
cle on the inside lane of west-
bound SR 60 when he was struck


by a 1994 Ford Explorer, driven
by Mark L. Corey, 35, of Babson
Park, around 6:05 a.m.
Corey stopped his car, and
another westbound vehicle, dri-
ven by Manuel 0. San Gabino,
34, of Fort Meade, hit the bicycle.
Pacheco-Munez died at the
scene, Coggins said.
Neither Corey or San Gabino
were injured.

Emily Warren Is Heart Walk Ambassador


Born In Cardiac Arrest, Baby


Now A Thriving 11-Year-Old


Catherine Warren knew some-
thing was wrong during her preg-
nancy, but it wasn't until the
emergency C-section that she dis-
covered her baby had developed a
heart defect. Emily was born
without a heartbeat and she was
in cardiac arrest.
"The doctors told my husband
they were doing everything they
could, but they couldn't control
her heart," explained Mrs.
Warren. "They were having to
continuously shock her heart just
to keep her alive." Emily was
born with long Q-T syndrome, a
disorder of the heart's electrical
rhythm. Unable to regain its nor-
mal rhythm, the heart may go
into spasms that lead to sudden
death.
After several months in the
hospital, Emily was able to come
home, but had to be connected to
a crash cart defibrillator 24 hours
a day, seven days a week. For the
next four years, Emily was per-
manently attached to the
machine so that in the event she
went into cardiac arrest, the
device would sound an alarm
prompting her parents to quickly
administer a life-saving shock.
"We bought a twin stroller so
we could put the baby in front
and the machine in the back,"
Mrs. Warren said. "It went every
where Emily went." From getting
tangled in the wires when learn-
ing to crawl to taking the
machine with her to pre-school,
Emily's parents were desperate
to find another solution.
Thanks to research funded in
part by the American Heart
Association, when Emily was
four, technology had advanced
far enough to produce an
implantable defibrillator that
freed the toddler from the
machine.
Emily, now 11, has survived a
total of six surgeries and within
the past year, has received a life-
saving shock from the internal
defibrillator numerous times.
"Its very painful and scary for
her," Mrs. Warren said. "But she
has a faith that's all her own. She
understands that she's special."
Although she can't play com-
petitive sports or any contact
games, Emily rides her bike and
likes to swing at the park. When
asked about her condition, Emily
explains, "I have a special box
that makes my heart beat right."
Emily is the 2005 Polk County
Heart Walk Red Cap Ambassador.


The Heart Walk is the American
Heart Association's signature
fundraising event and a "red cap
survivor" is anyone who survived
a heart disease or stroke who par-
ticipates in the event. They are
distinguished at the Heart Walk
with red baseball caps imprinted
with "Fighting Back."
Not only survivors attend the
Heart Walk on Saturday, Oct. 1,
starting at 8 a.m. at IMC Agrico
Park in Bartow. Many partici-
pants walk in honor or memory of
a friend or family member who
has or had heart disease or a
stroke.
Funds raised from the Heart
Walk support the American Heart
Association's life-saving research,
education and community pro-
grams. Research funded by the
American Heart Association has
yielded important discoveries


such as CPR, life-extending
drugs, pacemakers, .bypass
surgery and surgical techniques
to repair heart defects.
The Polk County Heart Walk is
sponsored locally by Subway.
Other sponsors include Watson
Clinic LLP, the Heart of Florida
Regional Medical Center, GEICO
Direct and Clark & Daughtrey
Medical Group. Media sponsors
include Bright House Networks,
WPCV-FM 97.5, WONN-AM
1230, WLKF-AM 1430, WWRZ-
FM 98.3, The Lakeland Ledger
and The News Chief. The Heart
Walk is sponsored nationally by
Subway restaurants.

Cancer Society Volunteers Honored at
Bartow/Fort Meade Unit Annual Banquet


Volunteers who support the
American Cancer Society were
recognized and celebrated by the
Bartow/Fort Meade Unit of the
ACS at its annual Volunteer Ap-
preciation banquet Sept. 15.
"We are successful in what we
do because of the efforts of our
many volunteers," John Hutto,
member of the unit's board of di-
rectors, said in his opening re-
marks at the dinner. "This is
just one way of showing them
how much we appreciate them
and how important they are to
the mission of the American
Cancer Society."
Invocation was given by Pas-
tor Roy Lowe.
Unit Chairman Pat Huff,
serving as master of ceremonies,
presented a number of individu-
als and groups with awards at
the banquet.
The Courage Award is given
to a survivor who demonstrates
tremendous courage, determina-
tion, and who maintains a posi-
tive attitude during his/her expe-
rience with cancer a survivor
who is a role model and inspira-
tion for other cancer patients.
This year, Sam Curtis, son of
Ray and Kathy Curtis, and
grandson of Zara Frankenbur-
ger, was the recipient of the
Courage Award. At age 5, Sam
was diagnosed with a medulla
blastoma, a brain tumor. After
12 hours of surgery at All Chil-
dren's Hospital in St. Peters-
burg, Sam was hospitalized for
three weeks during recovery.
Following the surgery, he re-
ceived daily radiation therapy
for six weeks, followed by a full
year of chemotherapy.
Sam, who is now 19, has been
declared cancer free for more
than 10 years, and has continu-
ally been involved in cancer re-
search. While in elementary
school, he served as honorary
chairman of the Bartow/Fort
Meade Making Strides Against
Cancer, the predecessor of Relay
for Life.
He has volunteered to partici-
pate in two separate studies in-
vestigating the use of hormones
for cancer survivors in the tran-
sition from adolescence to adult-


hood.
Sam graduated from Bartow
High School this year, where he
was active in video production.
He served as co-executive pro-
ducer of the Bartow High School
entry in a statewide video com-
petition and won a Best of Show
award. This summer, he devoted
a week of his time videoing the
Vacation Bible School program
at the Associate Reformed Pres-
byterian Church in Bartow.
Sam recently was awarded an
American Cancer Society Schol-
arship Award, given to youth
who have experienced cancer
prior to age 21.
The Hope Award, which is
presented to volunteers who
have exhibited exceptional serv-
ice in supporting the causes of
the American Cancer Society,
was presented to Dr. Leslie Lu-
bich.
Dr. Lubich currently serves at
the radiation oncologist at the
Center for Cancer Care & Re-
search in both the Bartow and
Lakeland centers. She also is
medical advisor for the local
board of directors, and speaks to
local service clubs and at Relay
for Life events about the preven-
tion and treatment of cancer.
She is board certified by the
American Board of Radiology,
and has published research find-
ings in the areas of cancer biol-
ogy, breast cancer, and prostate
cancer. She is affiliated with H.
Lee Moffit Cancer Center and
Research Institute in Tampa.
In a space in her Bartow of-
fice, Dr. Lubich has established
a location for wigs and prosthe-
ses for women undergoing treat-
ment for cancer, and she pro-
vides information about the serv-
ices and programs provided by
the American Cancer Society.
Dr. Lubich also has hosted
groups of visitors who have
toured both the Bartow and
Lakeland Centers for Cancer
Care & Research.
"We are most fortunate to
have Dr. Lubich as our spokes-
man and advisor," Hutto said.
The Income Development
Award for Fort Meade was pre-
sented to Barbara Manley and


Melody Bell, who co-chaired the
Relay for Life event in 2005.
With their leadership and
many volunteers, Fort Meade
doubled their goal, bringing in a
total of $41,187.33.
Paula White was presented
the Income Development Award
for Bartow.
Ms. White, a cancer survivor,
has been active with the board of
directors for several years, serv-
ing as its secretary and chairing
the annual Fashion Show.
She also is active in the Cat-
tleman Baron Ball Making
Strides event held in Lakeland,
and Relay for Life in Bartow.
"(Ms. White's) courage and in-
volvement certainly merits this
award," Hutto said.

of Polk County American Cancer
Society, introduced Elizabeth
Hawthorne, who will serve as
community representative for
the Bartow/Fort Meade Unit.
Also introduced was Deborah
O'Neal, who is active in the

Nutrition Notes



The Inside Story On Colon Cancer


K aren Collins, MS, RD, CDN
American Instittite for
Cancer Researcth

If you read' weight'loss advice
in diet books, magazines, or on
the, Internet, you might conclude
that a vegetarian diet is a guar-
anteed way to lose weight.
Although surveys show that
vegetarians tend to weigh less
ihan meat-eaters, you may not
experience sustained weight loss
by turning vegetarian.
A recent study compared the
eating habits of people before
and after they began eating
vegetarian.
SAfter following a self-selected
vegetarian diet for six months,
'.the calorie consumption of these
people dropped by almost 200
'calories per day. Their weight
'id not change, but people
seemed to be leaner.
A There were reductions in their
Svaist and hip measurements, as
well as their skinfold measure of
body fat stores.
- A British study did' find
weight differences between vege-
tarians anid meat-eaters. This
study divided more than 65,000
participants into four groups:
meat-eaters, fish-eaters, lacto-
ovovegetarians (who eat eggs
and dairy products but no meat),
and vegans (who eat no animal
products).
The.body mass. index (BMI),
which -is the most common way
to' measure body fatness, was at
a healthy level in all groups.
But the meat-eaters had the
highest BMI as group, which
brought them closest to being


overweight. Fish-eaters and
lacto-ovovegetarians had similar,
intermediate BMI averages,
while vegans had the lowest.
Among meat-eaters, 7 percent
. of the. men and 9 percent of the
women were obese. In the fish-
eater and lacto-ovo groups, 3
percent of the men and 4 percent
of the women were obese.
Only 2 percent of the men and
women vegans were obese.
The difference in weight
among these groups probably
comes from the difference in
calorie intake. Fish-eaters and
lacto-ovovegetarians ate about 4
percent fewer calories than the
meat-eaters.
The vegans' average calorie
intake was 14 percent lower
than the meat-eaters. Anyone
who fills up on more vegetables
and fruits, like the vegans,
should experience' a drop in calo-
ries and weight because these
foods contain fewer calories in
the same size portion, compared
to higher-fat meat or cheese
dishes.,
Age could help explain the
weight differences in this study,
too, since the participants esti-
mated their calorie intakes a bit
inaccurately.
Vegans were much more
likely to be in their 20s and 30s.
Of the people in their 40s and
50s, two-thirds to three-quarters
were meat-eaters.
This age allocation is signifi-
cant because the average BMI
increased one to two points be-
tween the ages of 20 to 40 in
each eating group. The higher
BMI among meat-eaters could'


reflect the greater proportion of
middle-aged people in the group.
Nevertheless, for people of all
ages, the impact of vegetarian
eating on their weight depends
on how it affects their calorie
consumption.
A healthy plant-based diet -
whether it is totally vegan or in-
cludes some dairy, fish, eggs, or
meat focuses on vegetables,
fruits, whole grains and beans.
This eating style, even with
moderate amounts of nuts and
healthful fats, is lower in calo-
ries than a diet with large
amounts of fatty sausages and
cheeseburgers.
You can still consume a lot of
unnecessary calories with a
vegetarian diet, however. A large
proportion of the average Ameri-
can's calorie intake comes from
soft drinks and other sweetened
beverages, chips, French fries
and cookies not meat or dairy
products.
If you want to lose weight,
look at where your excess calo-
ries come from. Try to fill up on
low-calorie vegetables, fruits,
whole grains and beans. This is
the crucial part.
You can choose to omit all
meats or include some fish, poul-
try, or lean kinds of red meat. No
matter which style of eating you
choose, portion control is essen-
tial. Overeating even healthy
foods piles up calories that pre-
vent weight loss.

New Recycling Offered

To County Residents


Effective Oct. 1, the Polk
County Board of County Com-
missioners will implement a new
five-year Solid Waste Collection
and Recycling program with
Florida Refuse Service (FRS).
The new service agreement
will provide residents with
twice-per-week household solid
waste pickup, unlimited routine
yard waste collection services,
and an expanded residential re-
cycling program.
The new agreement includes
the following services:
Household Garbage Pick-up
As the sole residential waste
collection service provider, FRS
will serve an additional 50,000
households that were previously
served by Waste Management
Incorporated.
Yard Waste
FRS will provide once-per-
week unlimited routine yard
waste collection. Previously,
yard waste pick-up was limited
to three cubic yards per week.
Under the new contract, Florida
Refuse will collect all routine
yard waste placed at the curb or
roadside provided shrubs and
tree limbs are reduced to a man-
ageable size.
Recycling
The new agreement expands
the county's recycling program to
provide curbside collection of re-
cyclables once-per-week.
Under the previous solid
waste agreement, approximately
50 percent of households bene-
fited from curbside recycling
service. The remaining house-
holds were able to recycle only
by utilizing drop-off sites located-
throughout the county. Under
the new contract, curbside recy-
cling will be available to at least
75 percent of all homes.
As of Oct. 1, most Polk resi-
dent's can recycle all household
paper and paperboard products
including cardboard, newspa-
pers, office paper (all colors), di-
rect mail advertising ("junk
mail"), magazines, phone books,
paper shopping bags, and food
containers (except those that are
food contaminated or wax


coated).
In addition, all color glass
containers, plastic containers
numbers one through six, alumi-
num and steel cans will be ac-
cepted for recycling.
All paper products must be
bundled with string or placed in
Kraft paper and/or plastic bags
to keep them from blowing away.
Glass, plastic and metal con-
tainers are to be placed in plastic
recycle bins. On collection day,
residents should place tied or
bagged paper beside, or on top
of, the recycle bin at the curb or
roadside.
FRS will provide and deliver
recycling bins to households in
the expanded recycling areas
during late September and early
October.
In addition, FRS also will
service existing recycling drop-
off sites that provide recycling
for multi-family households, ex-
empt communities and mobile
home parks. Various drop-off
sites may be relocated or ex-
panded, depending on local
needs.
To protect residents and the
environment, automotive related
items such as oil, antifreeze and
batteries, as well as household
hazardous waste items such as
paint, chemicals and cleaners,
should be disposed of at the
county's Household Hazardous
Waste Collection Sites.
These sites are located at the
North Central Landfill on High-
way 540 between Winter Haven
and Lakeland, or the Southeast
Landfill located on Golfview Cut-
off Road Southeast of Lake
Wales.
E-waste (television sets, com-
puters, and other electronic
waste) can be delivered to the
North Central Landfill and
Southeast Landfill. The cost for
this disposal service is included
in the homeowner's property
taxes.
For more information about
the new and expanded services,
contact FRS at 665-1489, or the
Polk County Solid Waste Divi-
sion at 284-4319.

As Floridians are deep into
hurricane season, Florida's Chief
Financial Officer and State Fire
Marshal Tom Gallagher is urg-
inig residents to identify emer-
gency contacts on their cell
phones.
As State Fire Marshal, Gal-
lagher oversees the search and
rescue functions at Florida's
Emergency Operations Center.
He is recommending cell
phone users put the acronym
ICE, an abbreviation for "in case
of emergency," before the names
of people they want to be con-


tacted on their behalf in an
emergency. The idea was devel-
oped by a British paramedic, and
the idea is spreading across the
nation.
"This simple step could help
emergency workers ensure you
get proper medical care and at
the same time quickly connect
you with your family in an emer-
gency," Gallagher said.
This could save paramedics,
police and firefighters valuable
time trying to figure out which
name in a cell phone to call.

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

The FCAT and I


Okay, it was a sucker pitch.
I am the sucker.
The pigeon.
The mark.
Last week the Florida Dept. of
Education released last year's
10th grade Florida
Comprehensive Achievement
Test, the dreaded FCAT.
Now, anybody in the world,
not just Florida high school
sophomores, can take the test.
I might have been able to resist
had not Dr. Gail McKenzie, our
school superintendent, been the
Rotary Club speaker the day
before the test was released. She
didn't exactly say that anybody
who didn't take it was a lily-liv-
ered wuss, but somehow, I had
the impression that the idea was
in the back of her mind.
"Anybody here taken the
FCAT?" I asked in our newsroom
Friday afternoon.
"I took it when I graduated,"
said our rookie, Brett Lowe,
whom I had never before thought
f as a wise guy.
"I downloaded it," said Peggy
Kehoe, our managing editor. "It's
like 40 pages," she added, by way
of explanation why she was not


hunkered down over it testing
her sophomore skills.
"How about forwarding it to
me," I asked.
If Peggy isn't available to for-
ward it to you, you can look it upl
for yourself at.www.fldoe.org.
It's not 40 pages.
The reading test alone is 40
pages, when you count the
answer sheet and the scoring
sheet and the instructions on how
to compute your score.
The math test runs 59 pages
with all the scoring stuff. And
frankly, I hope I get one point for
counting the number of pages.
Since I have been writing for a
living for most of my adult life, I
didn't feel too intimidated by the
reading test.
It consists of five brief essays
and a blank verse poem, each fol--
lowed by from seven to 11 multi-
ple choice questions about what
you have just read, a total of 56
questions. I hope they'll give me
another point on the math test for
being able to count the number of
questions on the reading test.
It didn't say that you couldn't
refer back to the text, and Brett
said he thinks the rules allow


that, so I did.
The instructions are simple:
you select the best answer from
multiple choice questions.
The essays are really quite
interesting, with subjects ranging
from the origins of baseball to a
science fiction story to a poem on
why you ought to fish tarantulas
out of your swimming pool.
I enjoyed the essays as well as
the test, which I finished in about
an hour.
Copyright restrictions prohibit
me from exact quotes, but let the
record show that with a four-year
degree and three Army schools to
my credit, I got 52 of the 56 ques-
tions correct. Since any score of 44
or higher placed me in the high-
est category of high school tenth
graders, I didn't feel too bad
about missing four questions.
Math? ,
That is something else alto-
gether.
Math is not a difficult subject; I
am a difficult student. There's a
difference.
Remember how simple the
instructions were on the reading
part? Select the best multiple
choice answer, right?


There are four pages of
instructions on how to take the
math test, including a bunch of
formulas for things like (and I am
not making this up, people) com-
puting the total surface area of a
right circular cone. In case you
have forgotten that from your
own sophomore days, the formu-
la is 1/2(2Tr)l+Tnr2=rrrl+Tr.
Come on, don't tell me you
had forgotten that already.
There are only 50 questions on
the math test.
I spent 45 minutes working on
the first 10. Questions 3, 7, and 10,
I simply answered with a ques-
tion mark. I am reasonably confi-
dent that I got the third part of
Question 9 wrong.
At that point, I decided it was
time for recess and I put my pen-
cil down and went to my cubby
to get my peanut butter and jelly
sandwich.
I vowed not to cheat by look-
ing at the answer sheet, but I did
sneak a peek at the grading scale.
I think I may need to repeat the
10th grade.


IP4br w -


Any American with a- scintilla of
human compassion wants to see victims
of Hurricane Katrina get assistance in
recovery from the disaster.
But the question must be asked:
Where's the money to come from?
President Bush has suggested that it
will take $200 billion to put the Gulf com-
munities of Alabama, Mississippi and
Louisiana back on their feet. (Let us not
lose sight of the fact that New Orleans
was not the only city devastated .by the
storm, just the most famous.)
Americans, have opened their hearts
and their pocketbooks, sending food,
clothing, and other essentials directly to
the disaster area, as well as millions of
dollars to relief agencies.
It is understandable that relief agencies
want money, but there is a "people to
people" appeal to the relief efforts mount-
ed by communities to fill trucks with
relief supplies and deliver them directly
to those who are struggling to cope with
their losses and to return to normalcy.
While government will spend billions
in direct aid to communities and individ-
ual citizens stricken by Katrina, we like
the approach taken in legislation that is
moving quickly through Congress.
That legislation provides $6.1 billion in
tax relief to businesses that are struggling
to stay viable, to storm victims who want
to tap into their retirement nest eggs, and
to donors willing to dig deep to con-
tribute money to the effort.
Among the provisions:


Taxes would be waived when mort-
gages on destroyed property are forgiven.
People who provide rent-free lodging
to evacuees for two months would get a
$500 tax deduction.
Hurricane victims would be able to
write off their entire casualty losses with
no deductions.
The 10 percent penalty for early with-
drawals from retirement accounts of
amounts up to $100,000 would be
waived.
Small employers whose businesses
have been closed but who continue to pay
their employees would get a tax credit.
The limit for allowable deductions
for charitable contributions would be lift-
ed temporarily.
No, these measures won't cover the
entire cost of recovery and rebuilding, but
they are an excellent way of supporting
people who are helping themselves and
others.

OUR READERS SAY

Preserve Main Street Architecture


BARTOW One of the most
attractive aspects of Bartow is'its
turn of the century former court
house with its high dome and
clock and the traditional feel of
Main Street, as can be seen at
Walt Disney World's "Main Street
USA," an appeal that has brought
moviemakers here to film several
major movies in the past.
Due to a recent tragedy that
destroyed two of the 100-year-old
historic buildings' with brick
facades that added to this appear-
ance, as well as the possible con-
demnation of the Philip's build-
ing, the future of our Main Street
is in serious peril.
When the two buildings that
were destroyed were built, it was
a time when builders built for the
ages, taking pride in the build-
ings they constructed, using
attractive architectural features to
enhance the building as well as
durable materials such as brick.
Unfortunately, that ethic and
pride'has been lost to the majori-
ty of today's builders. One thing
that must not happen is to allow a
builder with no sense of history.
to put up replacement buildings
using today's quickie and shoddy
construction methods such as
sheet metal, glass, and feature-
less, shoebox architectural
design.
It would also be cheaper and
in the best interest of our city to
salvage and restore the Philip's
building instead of razing it. It
has many desirable features such
as brick construction, a history,


and a unique sidewalk entrance
that cannot be duplicated by
today's builders at the cost of
replacement.
It is essential that the city be
involved in approving only those
designs that maintain the tradi-
tional Main Street USA type
appearance of our town. The type
of traditional architecture and
construction needed, with brick
facades, corbels, trim and
awnings is more expensive, but
to do less would destroy forever


one of the most appealing aspects
of our town. We can hardly afford
not to do these things, for what
we do today will be a reflection of
our foresightedness and historic
sensitivities for generations to
come.
This is an opportunity to make
Main Street even better with a
true, turn of the century (19th to
20th Century) appearance that is
all too rapidly disappearing. In
this age of stark steel buildings or
even worse, ultra-modern glass


structures, let's protect our city
and its Main Street charm and
only allow buildings to be con-
structed, using tried and true
architectural design and brick
construction, so that citizens will
be able to walk down Main Street
with a sense of pride, instead of
shaking their heads in disgust at
what the city leaders allowed our
once beautiful Main Street to
become through bad decisions
and shortsightedness.

Imagine The Fu
Transportation
Polk Transportation Planning
Organization (TPO), the group
that creates the long range
transportation Plan for Polk
County, is looking for some local
creative kids to think outside the
box and help solve the problems
of the future.
The TPO is sponsoring an art
poster contest for all Polk
County students grades fourth
through 12th to draw what they
think transportation will be like
in the year 2030.
Polk'County has an estimated
population of 528,000 which is
expected to increase to more
than 700,000 by the year 2030.
That means lots more traffic
on overcrowded roads. Also more
than one in five people in Amer-
ica will be over the age of 65 in
the year 2030; that means there
needs to be a mass transit sys-
tem that can take elderly people,
who may or may not be able to
drive, to their doctor's appoint-
ments, grocery shopping, librar-
ies and even to work.
Children should think about
the transportation of the future
and draw their inventions on an


iture Of
With Contest
8-1/2 by 11-inch paper.
Entry forms are available at
local libraries or by downloading
one from the TPO website at
www.PolkTPO.com
Children or parents may fill
out the entry form, attach it to
the back of the drawing and mail
it in to the address on the form
before Dec. 1.
The contest begins on Oct. 1
and ends Dec. 1.
Medals will be given to the
winning students of-each grade
in February at the TPO board
meeting at the Neil Combee Ad-
ministration Building in Bartow.
The award ceremony will be
televised on Polk Government
Television (PGTV) (Brighthouse
Cable channel 19 and Comcast
cable channel 33).
The winning drawings also
will be on a digital display at the
Polk County Public Works Week
event in the spring at Eagle
Ridge Mall in Lake Wales.
For more information, contact
Jan Johnson, public information
specialist for the TPO, at 534-

Polk Community College has
partnered with the Polk County
Public Schools (PCPS) to offer an
accelerated training program
that will train newly-hired
teachers who did not major in
education.
This year-long Educator
Preparation Institute (EPI) is
one of the first 10 in the state to
be approved by the Florida De-
partment of Education and will
satisfy professional preparation
and professional education com-
petence for the Florida Profes-
sional Certificate.
"Through the institute, people
with bachelor's degrees and
teaching aspirations can receive
teacher certification designed to
give them the skills needed to
become a highly effective quali-
fled teacher in less time required
for a traditional education de-
gree," said PCC Professor Bev-
erly Woolery, who is coordinat-
ing the program.
These institutes were estab-
lished throughout Florida to
handle the increasing demand
for teachers.
It is estimated that by next
fall, Florida will-need 29,604 ad-
ditional teachers and in the next


decade 200,000 new teachers
will be needed.
Many recently hired teachers
do not have a degree in educa-
tion.
This program will help rem-
edy that situation. Individuals
attending PCC's EPI will each
have a one-on-one mentor and
will attend training sessions two
Saturday a month and take on-
line training in such subjects as
classroom management, technol-
ogy, foundation of language and
cognition and diversity.
EPI instructors and mentors
are national Board Certified
Teachers from the Polk County
public schools. Participants are
current PCPS teachers.
"The curriculum is based on
the 12 Florida Educator. Accom-
plished Practices determined by
the state to help prepare partici-
pants for the state test required
before completing the program,"
Woolery said.
The program cost is $1,330.56
for tuition and $99 for a pre-as-
sessment test. Textbooks are
free.
There is space for 60 students
and 52 have enrolled at this
time.

75th Anniversary Nugges.

The Polk County Democrat

For its first 15 years, The Polk County Democrat,
which published its first issue on Aug. 28, 1931, had its
offices and did its printing at Bartow Printing Co., a ram-
bling frame structure at 55Q North Broadway, about where
the Chamber of Commerce is located today. The offices
faced the street, and the production department was in the
back. Because of the slope of the land, a short flight of
stairs led down to the production area. In addition to
printing The Democrat and doing commercial printing,
Associated Publications Corp. (parent corporation of
Bartow Printing Co.) published two magazines, The Citrus
Industry and The Fish and Oyster Reporter. The Citrus
Industry is still in publlication. S. L. Frisbie, IV

Medicare Drug Coverage To Begin In January


People with Medicare in Flor-
ida will be able to get prescrip-
tion drug coverage in January,
through, their choice of either a
newly approved stand-alone pre-
scription drug plan that works
with traditional Medicare, or a
Medicare Advantage plan that
offers drug coverage and other
benefits.
In Florida, 18 organizations
will offer stand-alone prescrip-
tion drug plans, including four
with premiums of less than $20
a month.
People with Medicare in Flor-
ida also may get drug coverage
with additional benefits and
even lower total out-of-pocket
costs by enrolling in Medicare
Advantage plans.
The Medicare Advantage op-
tions include two new statewide
PPO plans and in 2006, 23 Medi-
care Advantage organizations
will provide prescription drug
coverage for no additional cost.
"Thanks to the range of op-
tions available, everyone in
Medicare who lives in Florida
will be able to choose a prescrip-
tion drug plan that addresses
their individual concerns about
cost, coverage and convenience,"
Health and Human Services Sec-
retary Mike Leavitt said. "For
premiums that are in many
cases much lower than expected,
seniors will be able to get Medi-
care-approved prescription drug
coverage that will help protect
their health as well as their sav-
ings."
Prescription drug coverage
will be available to everyone in
Medicare, regardless of their in-
come or how they get their Medi-
care coverage.
Extra assistance is available
to those with limited incomes
and resources. Of the organiza-
tions offering drug coverage in
Florida, six will have prescrip-
tion drug plans available with no
premium to beneficiaries who
qualify for that extra help.
"Today CMS notified plans
that have met all of Medicare's
standards and are approved to
compete to provide Medicare pre-
scription drug coverage," said
CMS Administrator Mark
McClellan M.D., Ph.D. "Plan
marketing will begin on schedule
on Oct. 1. As we approach the


start of enrollment on Nov. 15,
Medicare will work with our
partners in Florida and around
the country to help people with
Medicare make their decisions."
All plans approved in Florida
have met Medicare's require-
ments for providing access to
medically necessary drugs, in-
cluding formulary standards as
well as standards for access to
convenient retail pharmacies
and to drugs in nursing homes.
All plans are required to pro-
vide coverage at least as good as
Medicare's standard coverage,
which pays on average 75 per-
cent of drug costs after a $250
deductible up to $2,250 in total
drug spending.
The coverage also pays ap-
proximately 95 percent after
$3,600 in out-of-pocket costs to
protect against very high drug
expenses.
This means that for a monthly
premium that is lower than ex-
pected, Medicare would pay
more than half of a typical bene-
ficiary's drug costs, or more than
$1,100.
"As a result of the strong
competition in Florida, Medicare
coverage will include options
that cost less and that also pro-
vide coverage that goes beyond
Medicare's standard benefit," Dr.
McClellan said. "With better op-
portunities to save and to get the
coverage that works for you, it's
about time to start thinking
about how you or someone you
care about can take advantage of
the new coverage."
"Any time is a good time to
talk about Medicare's drug cov-
erage, but we'd like to create a
national conversation at a time
when a lot of people gather with
family and friends and just catch
up on their lives," Secretary
Leavitt said.
"Take a few minutes to talk
about Medicare's drug coverage
- it could change the life of
someone you love," Dr. McClel-
lan said. "We will use the de-
tailed information on drug plans
that will be available in the
weeks ahead to help every Medi-
care beneficiary choose a plan
that is a good fit."
More information to help
guide these conversations will be
published in the coming weeks.

URS To Celebrate Renovation
With Ribbon Cutting Ceremony


When Len Jordan got the call
on June 6 of this year at his Bar-
tow Breakfast Rotary Club meet-
ing that the 200 block of down-
town Bartow was on fire, he
thought it was a joke.
But, when he got near his of-
fice at URS Corporation South-
ern's location at 212 East Main,
he found the situation was noth-
ing to laugh about.
Although his building re-
ceived no fire damage, there was
plenty of water damage and by
the next afternoon, carpeting
had been stripped from the
floors, and drywall had been cut
out of his office.
Exactly three months to the
day of the fire, Jordan, who is of-
fice manager for URS, and his
staff moved back into the build-
ing, and by Sept. 12, things were
finally back to normal.
The Greater Bartow Chamber
of Commerce will celebrate the
event with a ribbon-cutting for


the new renovation; and URS
will host an open house or Tues-
day, Sept. 27, at 5 p.m.
The Bartow URS Corporation
is one of 10 locations spread
throughout Florida, however the
engineering firm hes many,
many offices around thle globe.
Some of the projects currently
being handled by Ihe Bartow
firm include the 54CA widening
project; and ongoing projects for
Polk Leisure Services. URS also
serves as the county's general
engineering consultant for utili-
ties, helping them manage all of
their capital projects programs.
URS (formerly Greiner) has
been the general consultant to
the Bartow Airport Authority for
the past 14 years and has pro-
vided services to the airport for
more than 20 years.

or any other Bartow Chamber
event, call 533-7125.

a special visitor. Mrs. Wanda Furlong's preschool
class was very excited when the Cat In The Hat
stopped by to see them and read "Bartholomew
and The Oobleck". The following day the students


made their very own Oobleck. Students had a lot
of fun playing with the Oobleck. They tried to
make a ball and see if it would bounce, and tried
to pull it apart, slowly and quickly. (Photo pro-

Florida Unveils First Hydrogen Fuel Cell Fleet


Florida's "hydrogen highway"
took another step forward as Lt.
Governor Toni Jennings joined
representatives from the U.S.
Department of Energy, Ford Mo-
tor Company, BP America, and
Progress Energy Florida at We-
kiwa Springs State Park to laud
the arrival of Florida's first hy-
drogen fuel cell fleet.
Last year, the international
corporations selected the Sun-
shine State as one of three sites
in the nation to demonstrate pol-
lution-free hydrogen fuel cell
cars.
"Florida is advancing pollu-
tion-free hydrogen technology for
the benefit of our citizens and
our environment," said Lieuten-
ant Governor Toni Jennings.
"Florida's public-private partner-
ships are introducing next gen-
eration technologies that, over
time, will reduce our reliance on
traditional fuels and strengthen
the nation's energy security
while protecting natural re-
sources."
The hydrogen demonstration
project is part of an initiative un-
veiled in 2004 by the U.S. De-
partment of Energy. Through
the federal government's Con-
trolled Hydrogen Fleet and In-
frastructure Demonstration and
Validation Project, Ford is sup-
plying Florida's Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)


and Progress Energy with five
hydrogen-powered Ford Focus
Fuel Cell Vehicles. BP America
will supply the cars with hydro-
gen fuel through a grant from
the State of Florida.
U.S. Department of Energy
Acting Assistant Secretary for
Energy Efficiency and Renew-
able Energy Douglas L. Faulk-
ner said, "This project is part of
our Learning Demonstrations,
,which are important to measur-
.ing progress and identifying
real-world technical challenges
that can be addressed by our re-
search programs."
One of the hydrogen-powered
Ford Focus vehicles will give
DEP park rangers a pollution-
free ride during everyday opera-
tions at Wekiwa Springs State
Park, which attracts nearly
185,000 visitors annually. Home
to a handful of freshwater
springs, the 8,000-acre park pro-
tects the headwaters of the We-
kiva River.
Two more vehicles will be util-
ized by DEP's Central Regula-
tory District for field inspections.
Progress Energy's energy-effi-
ciency specialists and customer
account managers will use the
remaining two hydrogen-fueled
cars at their Jamestown Opera-
tions Center.
Hydrogen can power cars by


replacing gasoline in an internal
combustion engine or as a source
of power for a fuel cell. A fuel cell
combines hydrogen and oxygen
to produce electricity, which
powers the car and emits only
steam.
Worldwide, energy companies,
automakers, and oil companies
are investing more than $2 bil-
lion annually on research and
development to advance hydro-
gen technology as a new, sus-
tainable source of energy.
In addition to the hydrogen
fuel cell vehicle demonstration
fleet, Florida became the first
customer for Ford's new 12-pas-
senger hydrogen shuttle bus in.
2004, ordering eight of the hy-
drogen vehicles for use in the Or-
lando area.
In 2003, Governor Bush
launched "H2 Florida," a state-
wide initiative, to grow the hy-
drogen technology industry, spur
investment and economic oppor-
tunity, and safeguard the na-
tion's natural resources. H2 Flor-
ida partners the. state with in-
dustry, local governments, and
academia to accelerate hydrogen
innovation and stimulate a con-
sumer market for the newest hi-
tech approach to cleaner, sus-
tainable sources of energy.

Historic Bok Sanctuary

To Celebrate Founder


On Saturday, Oct. 9, Historic
Bok Sanctuary will commemo-
rate the birthday of its founder
Edward W. Bok with a rare op-
portunity to walk across the
moat that surrounds the Singing
Tower and special carillon recit-
als at 1 and 3 p.m.
During the "Crossing the
Moat" event, visitors will enjoy
an experience rarely granted to
visitors. From 10 to 11 a.m. and
again from 2 to 3 p.m., visitors
can enter the wrought iron gates
to see the exquisite detail of the
Tower's Great Brass Door, which
depicts the Biblical story of crea-
tion.
Designed by renowned master
iron worker Samuel Yellin, the,
masterpiece door weighs ap-
proximately 1,100 pounds. It fea-
tures 32 brass panels crafted in
repouss6, meaning ornamented
with patterns in relief made by
hammering the reverse side.
Visitors also will be able to
watch the 160 new exotic koi
swimming in the moat.
Carillon selections will in-
clude "America the Beautiful,"
by Samuel A. Ward; Stephen
Foster tunes, "Way Down Upon
the Suwannee River" and "My
Old Kentucky Home."
Additionally the recital will
feature a paraphrase on "Come
Down, 0 Love Divine," a compo-


sition by Milford Myhre, carillon-
neur emeritus of Historic Bok
Sanctuary, written in memory of i
Anton Brees, the Sanctuary's
first carillonneur.
The recital presents a state-
of-the-art recording of a past per-
formance by Myhre.
Bok was born in the Nether-
lands on Oct. 9, 1863, and immi-
grated to America at age 6.
He became a highly successful
publisher, Pulitzer Prize-win-
ning author, respected humani-
tarian and an advocate of world
peace and the environment.
He spent his lifetime fulfilling
his grandmother's words, "make
you the world a bit better or
more beautiful because you have
lived in it," and those words con-
tinue to be the mission of the
Sanctuary.
The Sanctuary was a gift of
gratitude from Bok for the op-
portunities he received as an
American, and is his living leg-
acy.
Historic Bok Sanctuary is
open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. with
the last guest admitted at 5 p.m.
Admission is $8 for adults and
$3 for children 5-12. Members
and children younger than 5 are
admitted free.

FWC Proposes One-Fish Bag
Limit for Gulf Red Grouper


orts

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) today proposed reducing
the daily bag limit from two fish
to one fish per person for red
grouper harvested by recrea-
tional fishermen in Gulf of Mex-
ico state waters.
The FWC expects this action
to result in a 30 percent annual
reduction in the Gulf red grouper
recreational harvest.
A 10-year rebuilding plan for
over-fished stocks of Gulf red
grouper, developed by the Na-
tional Marine Fisheries Service
(NMFS) and the Gulf of Mexico
Fishery Management Council
(GMFMC), annually allocates
1.25 million pounds of red grou-
per to recreational harvesters,
and 5.31 million pounds to com-
mercial harvesters.
More than 90 percent of all
red grouper landed in the Gulf
are harvested from state or fed-
eral waters off Florida, and most
of these fish are harvested far-
ther offshore in federal waters.
State and federal regulations
manage the recreational harvest
of red grouper with bag and size
limits, and the commercial har-
vest is managed with a size
limit, daily vessel trip limits and
an annual harvest quota.
The commercial Gulf red
grouper fishery reached its quota
and closed from Nov. 15 through
Dec. 31 last year, and the com-
mercial fishery will likely reach
its quota and close in October
this year.
Also last year, the recrea-
tional red grouper harvest ex-
ceeded its annual allocation by
159 percent, and as a result, the
NMFS implemented an interim
rule to ensure the recreational
red grouper fishery remained
within its allocation during 2005
and the stock rebuilding sched-
ule stayed on track.
This interim rule reduced the
daily red grouper recreational
bag limit in federal waters from


two fish to one fish and reduce
the aggregate grouper bag limil
in federal waters from five fish
to three fish. The rule also pro-
hibits the recreational harvest ol
all grouper species from Nov. 1
through Dec. 31 this year.
The interim rule will be in ef-
fect for 180 days and could be ex-
tended for an additional 180
days, and NMFS has requested
that the FWC adopt a consistent
rule for Florida state waters.
The NMFS interim rule did not
address the commercial red
grouper fishery because commer-
cial landings did not exceed their
quota in either 2003 or 2004.
In June, the FWC considered
and rejected the NMFS request
to implement its interim rule
provisions in Florida waters, cit-
ing concerns of undue economic
hardship to Florida's recrea-
tional and charter industry. As a
precautionary measure, the
FWC agreed to lower the red
grouper bag limit to one fish only
if NMFS took similar action,
however this did not occur, and,
no action was taken by the FWC.
Currently the GMFMC is con-
sidering a range of management
alternatives for red grouper (and
also for gag and black grouper),
including bag, size and vessel
limits and closed seasons. The
GMFMC is expected to make a
final decision on these alterna-
tive actions in October.
The FWC is proposing a re-
duction in the red grouper rec-
reational daily bag limit from
two fish to one in state waters to
help ensure that recreational
harvests do not impede the re-
building plan for this species,
and a final public hearing on
this proposal will take place at
the FWC's Nov. 30-Dec. 1 meet-
ing in Key Largo.
The FWC will also request
that the GMFMC expedite action
to re-address the recreational anc
commercial harvest allocation of
the Gulf red grouper stock.

Turnovers Prevent Bartow Upset In

Close Loss to Hardee Wildcats, 21-14


By JEFF THORNBURG

The sixth-ranked Hardee
Wildcats extended their regular
season winning streak to 37 with
a 21-14 win over the Bartow Yel-
low Jackets, last Friday night at,
Wildcat Stadium in Wauchula.
Bartow was a serious threat
to break the streak, as the game
was tied through three quarters.
However, Bartow's upset hopes
were dashed by five Yellow
Jacket turnovers and a blocked
punt.
Despite the turnovers, the
tough Jacket defense allowed
only one turnover that resulted
in points for Hardee.
"That's a good football team,"
said Bartow Head Coach Shawn
Killets about Hardee. "We just
can't afford errors in a game like
this."
After fumbling their first pos-
session, Bartow opened the scor-
ing on an 80-yard, 11-play drive
that consumed almost five min-
utes on their second. The drive
was aided by a Wildcat roughing
the kicker penalty on Bartow's
punter, Jasper Stephens.
Bartow quarterback Devarius
Cook tossed his sixth touchdown
pass of the season, when he con-
nected with Jamal Darling on a
23-yard pass play.
Hardee tied the game going
into halftime, with a nine-play,
51-yard scoring drive, capped by
a pass from quarterback Weston
Palmer to his favorite receiver,


Jermain King, covering four
yards.
The second half opened with
both squads scoring touchdowns
on the first possessions. Hardee
took the lead on a 65-yard drive,
ending on a one-yard plunge
from Wildcat fullback Brad Gil-
liard.
The Yellow Jackets roared
right back with a seven-play, 63-
yard drive, knotting the game at
14 on Willie Henderson's four-
yard run.
The drive was highlighted by
a 27-yard Brandon Bridges run
and a 33-yard pass from Cook to
Phillip Jackson.
The Wildcats claimed the lead
for good on the game's most ex-
citing play. Junior Chris Rich
took the hand-off, got outside
and sprinted down the sideline
73-yards for a Hardee touch-
down.
Bartow did not quit. The Yel-
low Jackets started a drive on
their own 37-yard line with
seven minutes left in the game.
Rushes by Ryan Colson and a
couple of passes by Cook moved
the ball inside the Hardee 15-
yard line.
However, Wildcat defensive
pressure on Cook forced a pass
which was intercepted with two
minutes remaining in the game.
"We're a young team," said
Killets, "and I'm proud of the
kids effort."

After a week of no games, the
University of the Cumberlands
Patriot Ladies came out hard.
It had been three weeks since
their last win and they were
hungry for another victory.
Well, all the hard work in the
last week of practice paid off.
The Patriot Ladies defeated
Spalding 8-1 at home on Satur-
day.
Not 15 minutes into the game,
Lesley Bryan, a former BHS soc-
cer player, had a one-on-one
breakaway with the keeper and
easily finished off the goal.
Spalding quickly answered
back when a shot bounced in off
the goal post. That would be the
end of the comeback by Spald-


The Patriot Ladies continued
with an unrelenting charge led
by Bryan, who went on to score
four more goals with an assist
from freshman Rebecca Rube,
who also had three assists of her
own.
Senior Captain Dana Fergu-
son also scored two goals and
freshman forward Nery Saucedo,
another former Lady Jacket, as-
sisted three goals as well.
Overall, the Patriot Ladies
really came together and worked
hard for a long sought-after vic-
tory.
The Patriot Ladies will try to
keep the winning ways alive in
their first conference game at
Campbellsville on Thursday,
Sept. 29, at 5 p.m.
