Two Rezoning Requests


Postponed for Study


LOWE'S WILL OPEN Oct. 28, and will celebrate the grand open-
ing on Nov. 2 with a "board cutting." Employees are now stocking
more than 32,000 items at the superstore at 425 East Van Fleet
Drive. The store has 94,000 square feet of retail sales space, with an
adjacent garden center, stocking items to help customers build,


improve and beautify their homes. A store of this size represents an
average investment for the company of $12 million and creates up to

Commission, Zoning Board


To Discuss Development


The Bartow city commission
will meet with the planning and
zoning board on Monday, Oct. 31,
to discuss the views of the two
boards on residential develop-
ment.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
suggested the meeting to city
commissioners "to discuss where
you want the city to go as far as
development.
"We're beating up on develop-
ers and our staff.
"If we need to stop what we're
doing, we need to say so."
DeLegge's comments were-
prompted by increasing resis-
tance by the zoning board to
approving high density single-
family residential developments
on newly-annexed land.
For months, the board has
been encouraging Planning Dir.


Robert Wiegers to press develop-
ers to create larger lots. The vast
majority of the homesites sub-
mitted to and, for the most part,
approved by the board have been
for R-1 development, the densest
single-family development in
Bartow's zoning code. R-1 allows
lots that are 70 feet wide.
The city commission, at the
board's recommendation, has cre-
ated two Rural Estate zoning cat-
egories, RE-1 for one-acre home-
sites and RE-2 for two homes per
acre.
Most of the resistance to high
density development has come on
the E.F. Griffin Road, where most
existing rural homesites are at
least one acre.
Objections also have come
from residents of Peace River
Estates, north of Connersville.


Commissioner Brian Hinton
asked if the joint meeting could
be opened up for public input, on
the order of the charettes that
were held on the Main Street
redesign.
DeLegge said that shouldn't
be done because of a lawsuit filed
by John and Terry Frost, oppos-
ing the Silver Companies devel-
opment north of Bartow between
U.S. Highway 98 and E.F. Griffin
Road.
"At some point we need to talk
to the people," Hinton said.
Mayor Leo Longworth sup-
ported DeLegge's proposal, say-
ing: "I'm not clear as to what
Bartow wants and what the citi-
zens of Bartow want."
"I think the meeting is a great
idea, but we shouldn't get into
specifics," City Atty. George


Dunlap told the commission.
"Let's not talk about specific
developments."
Dunlap said it is important for
the zoning board to act indepen-
dently as an ai ,ory agency to
the city commission. The com-
mission has the final say on vir-
tually all zoning issues, but his-
torically has followed the recom-
mendations of the zoning board
with only rare exceptions.
The joint meeting on Oct. 31
will be at 5:30 p.m. at city hall.
Although not being conducted for
the purpose of seeking public
input, the meeting is open to the
public under Florida's
Government in the Sunshine
Law.


Kim Tucker Memorial

To Be Built at Park


The late Kimberly Allen
Tucker, wife of Gerald Tucker,
and daughter of Ken and Bonnie
Allen, all of Bartow, will be hon-
ored with a memorial column
being constructed at Summerlin
Park, east of Bartow High School.
The dedication will coincide
with the American Cancer
Society's 'Tow the Distance 5K
Run and Relay, which will be held
as one of the Magic on Main
events on Nov. 19.
The dedication ceremony will
take place at the Magic on Main
stage to be set up adjacent to Fort
Blount Park at the corner of Main
and Broadway.
Mrs. Tucker's sister, Jennifer
Boerger, will sing "I Hope You
Dance," a song that has become
synonymous with Mrs. Tucker's
memorable life.
The ceremony is scheduled for


noon.
The

east side of Bartow High School. (Photo provided)


memorial column will be


Kimberly Allen Tucker


decorated with some 200 hand-
made ceramic tiles created by
Mrs. Tucker's family and friends.
It is being constructed on the
north side of Summerlin Park
next to the student parking lot.
The memorial also will feature
a park bench that has been
donated by the "Cancer Can't
Tucker Us Out" Relay For Life
team, headed by Mrs. Tucker's
husband.
Succumbing to cancer on Aug.
1, 2004, after spending more than
half her life fighting the disease,
Mrs. Tucker continues to be a
source of inspiration to other can-
cer patients.
She was born in Memphis,
Tenn., but was a lifelong resident
of Bartow.
Diagnosed with Hodgkin's dis-
ease at the age of 17, Mrs. Tucker
overcame two bouts of the disease
and went on to become a licensed
mental health counselor
employed by the state of Florida.
In 2001, Mrs. Tucker devel-
oped breast cancer. She under-
went treatment at Hope Lodge in
Gainesville and again returned
home to Bartow, where she was a
member of the Relay for Life
planning committee.
She also was a member of the
Bartow Art Guild, and was
involved in the annual Bartow
Bloomin'Arts Festival.
She was an active member of
the American Cancer Society, and
was a member of the American
Counseling Assn., the Tampa Bay
Assn. for Marriage and Family
Therapists, and of the Assn. for
Spiritual, Ethical, and Religious
Values in Counseling.
She attended First United
Methodist Church of Bartow.


Two requests to reclassify
small parcels of land in Bartow
from single-family to multi-family
were postponed by the zoning
board in the face of opposition by
neighbors.
One would change the land use
designation on 1.7 acres of land
just west of the new Holiday Inn
Express from low density residen-
tial (LDR) to medium density res-
idential (MDR), a move that
would open the way for apart-
ments or other multi-family hous-
ing.
The other would change the
zoning of a single building lot on
East Hooker Street from R-1-A
(single-family residential) to R-2
(duplexes). That parcel is approx-
imately four-tenths of an acre.
The larger site, owned by
MICC Development, LLC, is just
south of Lucile Street, straddling
an unopened block of North
Floral Avenue.
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
said changing the land use desig-
nation from LDR to MDR would
open the way for construction of
up to 12 units per acre on the site,
which presently is platted for 10
single-family homes.
Russell McDonald, whose
home is just north of the property,
predicted that it would hurt prop-
erty values and the quality of life
in the neighborhood.
Kyle Holland, who lives in the
next block, said residents already
have a hard time entering North
Broadway, and that adding that
many more dwelling units would
make the problem worse.
"Show us what is going to be
there," he urged.


Annexation of another 20
acres of land on the north side of
Lyle Parkway, a half-mile west of
Maple Avenue, for residential
development was approved by
the Bartow city commission.
The commission passed on
first reading ordinances annex-
ing three adjacent parcels: 14.2
acres owned by William and
Catherine Lyle, and two parcels,
each of 2.9 acres, owned by Chet
and Linda Carver and by
Virginia and Dwight Brower.
A public hearing on the annex-
ations will be held at the com-
mission's Oct. 17 meeting.
The land use designation for
the property is low density resi-
dential. The zoning, which will
determine what that density will
be, will be decided later.
The commission also:
Noted City Mgr. Joseph J.
DeLegge's report that the fire
department has received grants
of $161,244 to replace its self-


Mark Sharp, another area res-
ident, said there already is a
major drainage problem in the
area. He urged the zoning board
to maintain the site for single-
family homes.
Terry Markley, owner of the
property, said her original plan
was to build single-family homes,
but the cost for paving and other
infrastructure was too high.
She said she planned "an
upscale development," perhaps
town houses or condominiums.
Board Member Drew Guffey
asked if the site could be desig-
nated for planned development.
Wiegers said that would give
the city more control, but would
limit the site to six units per acre,
not 12.
Chm. Michael J. Marchman
suggested that the board delay
action on the land use request
until it is accompanied by a zon-
ing change, which would be a bet-
ter indication of the use of the
land. Other members agreed.
The other parcel on which
action was postponed is on East
Hooker Street between Orange
Avenue and Lusk Place. It is
owned by Mark and Carla Meeks,
who own six duplex units. The
site is across the street from their
own home.
Carla Meeks said that she
carefully screens all renters,
adding, "I only want high quality
people."
Tim Harris, who lives immedi-
ately north of the property in
what he said is Bartow's only log
home, opposed developing the site
for rentals, and said he had
offered to buy the land for $5,000


contained breathing apparatus
and $15,000 for a thermal imag-
ing camera.
Accepted a state law
enforcement grant of $39,401 for
the police department's victim
assistance program.
Approved a recreation board
recommendation that a column
be placed in Summerlin Park at
Wilson Lake honoring the late
Kim Tucker.
Noted DeLegge's report that
city employees taking part in the
American Heart Assn. Heart
Walk raised more than $7,000.
Agreed to give the Polk
County commission $250 to help
pay for an event honoring World
War II veterans.
Reappointed Phillip Bryan
and Danny Keith to the zoning
board of adjustment; reappointed
Albert Reese to the building and
housing board of appeal; reap-
pointed Donald Odom to the code
enforcement board; and appoint-


more than the couple paid for it.
His wife, Virginia Harris, said
she and her husband had main-
tained both the lot in question
and adjoining property owned by
the city and by the railroad.
Mark Meeks said that when he
and his wife bought the lot, "I had
to mow it with a chainsaw."
Cheri Kelley, who lives east of
the property, also urged that it be
maintained for single-family
housing.
Marchman said he didn't want
to vote on the rezoning until he
had a chance to look at the prop-
erty, and the board voted unani-
mously to delay action.
The board also:
Voted to recommend annexa-
tion of three parcels of land total-
ing 20 acres on the north side of
Lyle Parkway a half-mile west of
Maple Avenue, and designate it
for low density residential devel-
opment. The largest parcel, 14.2
acres, is owned by William and
Catherine Lyle. The smaller
parcels, each 2.9 acres, are owned
by Chet and Linda Carver and by
Virginia and Dwight Brower.
Voted to recommend a land
use designation of industrial for
the old canning plant property on
State Road 60, just west of Crown
Avenue. The property is owned by
Bartow Holding Co., Inc., and
was recently annexed into the
city limits.
Voted to recommend zoning
for the recently annexed Duratek
Wall Corp. property on U.S.
Highway 17, North, as 1-2 (indus-
trial) and C (conservation).

board.
Designated Commissioner
Pat Huff to recommend someone

cation board.
Noted Gerald Cochran's
complaints that parking spaces
around Fort -Blount.. Park fill up
first thing in the morning; that a '
city truck parks in the park; that
the code enforcement board isn't
doing a good enough job citing
owners of overgrown property;
and that the city has too many
potholes.
Approved a pipeline crossing
agreement with CSX Railroad for
extension of fiber optic cable.

.FLORIDA GAS TRANSMISSION COMPANY
PROPOSES A PIPELINE EXPANSION TO
SUPPLY FLORIDA'S CLEAN ENERGY NEEDS

'The Filing October 5th

On October 5, 2005, Florida Gas Transmission Company
(FGT) filed an application for a Certificate of Public Convenience
. and Necessity with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
(FERC) to construct an expansion to our existing interstate
pipeline system. The project has been designated as ourPhase
V iExpansion Project and the application has been assigned
Docket No. CPO6-1-000 at the FERC.

'Florida Gas Transmission your clean energy partner

FGT is Florida's leadei.in providing clean energy solutions,
safely and reliably. FGT is an interstate pipeline company with
offices in'Maitland, Florida and Houston, Texas and employees at
field offices along our pipeline system. FGT operates a 5,000-mile
pipeline systern.that runs from South Texas to Homestead, Florida.
..FGT hasbeen supplying the majority of Florida's natural gas
needs for over 40 years through an extensive network of
underground pipelines.

Phase. VII Expansion Project its scope and purpose

The Phase VII Expansion Project refers to Florida Gas
Transmission's proposal to construct three 36-inch natural gas
pipeline lqops on the 30-inch West Leg; add 9,800 horsepower at
existing.-ompressor stations and associated auxiliary facilities.
The proposed Project will be completed in two phases to meet
customer timing requirements. The proposed in-service dates
are May 1, 2007 and May 1, 2009. FGT proposes to construct
three 36-inch loops totaling 17.3 miles of pipe and adding 9,800
horsepower to two existing compressor stations and re-wheeling two
existing compressor units at Station 26. A new interconnect
will be constructed with Cypress Pipeline along with modifications
to existing metering facilities. These facilities are planned to be in
service on May 1, 2007. FGT proposes to construct two 36-inch loops
totaling 15.3 miles of pipe and re-wheel two existing compressor
units at Station 27, with a planned in service of May 1, 2009.
The purpose of the Phase VIlI Expansion Project is to deliver
additional natural gas volumes for Progress Energy's planned
expansion of generation capacity in 2007 and 2009.

Planned construction in your area

Please refer to the map for a list of facilities to be constructed in
your area. A copy of our FERC application is available for viewing at
the following location:

75 E. Broadway Street
Fort Meade, FL 33841
(863) 285-8287


How Landowners are affected:


A pipeline normally requires a permanent 50-foot wide
right-of-way. During construction, FGT will need an additional
50-foot workspace next to the permanent right-of-way. FGT
may also need temporary workspace in certain areas, such as
road, railroad, or stream crossings, to accommodate particular
construction activities. Property owners are entitled by law to
receive compensation for having a pipeline on their property.
FGT will negotiate with the property owners to receive approvals
through a signed easement for needed property rights.
To the extent that FGT is unable to negotiate easement rights
with landowners whose property the pipeline construction impacts,
such easement rights may be determined in accordance with the
eminent domain laws.

75th Anniversary Nuggeis

The Polk County Democrat

SThen The Polk County Democrat published its
first issue on Aug. 28, 1931, Bartow had an
established five-days-a-week daily newspaper,
The Polk County Record. Starting a second newspaper in
a town the size of Bartow in the depths of the Great
Depression probably would not go down in history as the
most sage decision in the history of American journalism.
But it worked. We're beginning our 75th year in business.

Editorial











Advice To the President:


Listen To Your Friends


For many years, our advice to public
officials (however seldom it is solicited)
has been simple:
Ignore your enemies; listen to your
friends.
It's not exactly rocket science.
Your enemies your political enemies
don't have your best interests at heart.
Your friends do.
If President George W. Bush were to ask
our advice which we don't anticipate -
that would be our counsel on his selection
of Harriet Miers to take the place of Justice
Sandra Day O'Connor on the United States
Supreme Court.
The knee-jerk opposition from
Democrats was to be expected, and the
Republican President is right to ignore it.
But the widespread skepticism from lead-
ers in his own party should give Bush
cause for a second look.
From our vantage point, 1,000 miles or
so south of Washington, D. C., we don't
have a grasp of Ms. Miers' expertise on
legal issues, or her philosophical leanings.
More to the point, those inside the Beltway
don't either.
It has been suggested that the
President's legacy will be his two appoint-
ments to the Supreme Court.
Unfortunately, that is probably so.
The Supreme Court has become the tail
that wags thegovernmental-dog. Until the
case of Marbury vs. Madison, that was not
the case. But in that appeal, the Supreme
Court established its authority as the most
equal of the three branches of government.
In Marbury vs. Madison, the court assert-
ed its right to overrule the other two
branches of government.
Thus it is that President Bush's appoint-
ment of two justices could define his
Presidency.
Supporters of Ms. Miers' appointment
offer only one reason for Senatorial affir-
mation of that decision:
Trust the President.
One of the realities indeed, one of the


strengths of the American form of gov-
ernment is its checks and balances.
As the poker-playing founder of this
newspaper was fond of saying 75 years
ago: Trust everybody, but cut the cards.
There is a certain populist appeal to
appointing to the Supreme Court a person
who is not a judge. Indeed, there is an
appeal to appointing someone who is not a
lawyer. It should not take someone with a
law degree to determine the intent of the
Founding Fathers.
Nonetheless, we would counsel the
President to pay attention to his friends,
even as he ignores his enemies.
The history of the court is replete with
appointment of justices whose previous
record of judicial opinions was not consis-
tent with their decisions as members of the
highest court in the land.
Harriet Miers has no such record.
And "Trust me, I'm the President" has a
hollow ring.
We are not ready to -suggest that
President Bush should withdraw his nom-
ination.
But we do believe that the Senate and
President Bush's advisors should
devote special attention to Harriet Miers to
insure that the President is getting what he
thinks he's getting in her selection.
Ignore your enemies; listen to your
friends. .

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

Bragging: It's Okay for Grandchildren


As a general rule, it's not polite
to brag.
But there's an exception to the
rule when you're bragging about
your grandchildren.
If there's not, there should be.
At the age of 2, our little Liam
began attending classes last
month at Florida Southern
College, the school from which
his great-granddaddy graduated
69 years earlier.
Okay, it's a school for toddlers
run by the college's own educa-
tion program to train teachers,
but if you say it real fast and with
a straight face Liam is enrolled
at Florida Southern College it
sounds pretty neat.
On Sunday, Liam turned 3.
It doesn't seem possible that
it's been three years since that
early morning phone call, when
Mary and I bounded across the
room to learn that we were
grandparents, and that the little
fellow was named William Loyal
Holton. William for his paternal
grandfather, Loyal for his mater-
nal great-grandfather, grandfa-
ther and uncle.
He would be called Liam, the
last four letters in his first name.
There is a special love that
develops between grandchildren
and grandparents, instantly for
the grandparents, quickly for the
little ones.
I thank God each day for that
special bond. It is a blessing that
cannot be earned.
Carolyn sends out a weekly


eLiam, which is eMail spelled
backwards. It is the last eMail I
open each Monday; it helps me
dispose of the other stuff a little
quicker.
In it, his parents chronicle, in
words and pictures, what our lit-
tle fellow has been doing in the
past week. Some day, the eLiams
will be a family treasure.
Every eLiam contains pictures
of that irrepressible Liam grin,
and of those little blue eyes that
can see into your soul.
We are fortunate that Liam
lives only a few minutes' drive
from us; we get to see him at least
once a week. Not all grandpar-
ents are so lucky.
The second year is sometimes
called the Terrible Twos. It often
is, but it needn't be.
It is the year when assertive-
ness begins to develop.
Toddlers learn the "N" word.
"No!"
Not "no."
"No!"
We hear it occasionally.
But Liam's "Yes!" is equally
assertive.
Would you like to go to the
children's museum?
"Yes!"
Would you like to go to the
park?
"Yes!"
Would you like ketchup for
your chicken nuggets?
"Yes!"*
Liam has been a good influ-
ence on his GranMary.


These days, when I ask her a
question, like: "Would you like to
go out to dinner tonight?" I no
longer get "Unh," and have to
ask is that a Yes Unh or a No Unh.
Instead, she gives a Liam-like
"Yes!"
.Liam understands that we give
thanks before eating, and when
he is with us, we give thanks for
Liam as well as for our meal. We
also give thanks for any special
blessings that week, and for safe
returns from travels.
The day after going as a family
to see the Disney on Ice perfor-
mance of Finding Nemo, we gave
thanks that Nemo's father found
him. Nemo is a little clown fish.
It's a neat story. Liam can name
every character in it.
Liam loves to paint.
Sometimes he uses his hands,
sometimes his feet. He's creative
that way.
In his second year, he has
become a real little chatterbox,
except when he decides to. put on
his shy act. It is not convincing.
As with all toddlers, it takes a
little extra concentration to
understand some of, the sen-
tences, but it's worth the trouble.
I have gone from being Deedy
to an unmistakable Granddaddy.
At the time of Dad's death last
December, he was still Great-
Deedy.
Liam at 2 and Great-Deedy at
89 were not really sure of the rela-
tionship between them. Liam was
too young to understand just


who this big fellow was who so
enjoyed his hugs, and Dad's men-
tal acuity was too faded to under-
stand exactly who it was who
was hugging him.
But I treasure the memories,
and the photos, of the hugs
exchanged by Liam and Great-
Deedy.
I give thanks daily for the love
and joy in Liam's little heart, and
for the love and joy he inspires in
each member of his family.
Amen.

Firefighters Serve Children Well


BARTOW On Tuesday, Oct.,
4, I accompanied a group ot
kindergartners to the Bartow fire
department. Each year the mem-
bers present a program of basic
fire safety.
For several years I have
observed the sincere interest: the
firemen have in teaIChing the stu-
dents. It is very obvious by the
facial expressions and body lan-
guage that they want the children
to leave the facility with life-sav-


BARTOW The debate
between people who believe in
acting on principle and those
who believe on acting to be prac-
tical has probably been going on
since humans could talk.
The problem of oil in the
world is a.topic for such debate
now.
The Oct. 2 issue of Parade stat-
ed that currently Iraq can't refine
enough oil to meet its needs and
the American military has to
bring in oil to run its vehicles,
and that significant oil produc-
tion is probably five years off.
Was this situation brought about
by action based on principle or
practicality?
President Bush steadfastly
insists that we must "stay the


iing knowledge.
The activities are well planned
and well executed. Students
move from one learning center to
another quickly enough for their
short attention spans, but slowly
enough that each child has a
chance to participate.
, Over the years I have seen the
firefighters tweak their lesson
plan, showing that they have
learned little tricks to keep the
kindergartners' attention and to


course" we started until Iraq
becomes a; democracy. That
sounds more a matter of principle
than of practicality.
Before we invaded Iraq, that
nation was controlled by a dicta-
torial government that we found
very repulsive. A practical solu-
tion back when we were fooling
around with that weapons of
mass destruction illusion would
have been to let the United
Nations continue its inspections,
and let the Iraqi people revolt, if
they wished to enough, against
the, dictator. Citizens of various
nations have done that, even the
American 13 Colonies of Britain.
Also, in spite of various sanc-
tions, Iraq was exporting consid-
e'rable oil.


maintain proper behavior. The
combination of an excellent les-
son plan and the sincerity and
interest shown by the firefighters
makes a superb field trip.
When the citizens of Bartow
speak of the positives of our city,
our Bartow fire department per-
sonnel should be remembered as
a very important part. I am
extremely grateful for these fine
people.
ANN WHITEHEAD


But the Bush-Cheney-
Halliburton supporters are deter-
mined that Americans will fight
there until democracy is estab-
lished in Iraq. We certainly don't
want to buy oil from a country
that's not a democracy, do we?
So President Bush acted on
principle, not oil. We regret that
his decisions are now costing bil-
lions, filling our veteran's hospi-
tals with wounded, and killing
who knows how many innocent
Iraqi citizens. But principle is
principle, right?
And who has more principle
that the Bush-Cheney-
Halliburton trio?

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES /By PAT BLAKE SIMS

The Joys of Flying


I was looking forward to my
class reunion next week and am
now fuming over the fact that I
cannot go.
The reason I won't be there is
that my left elbow is the size of ai
navel orange and I am not to hit it
on anything that will make it
swell up any larger.
Yesterday I was loading books
into my car, Petunia T. Cruiser,
%%when the trunk lid fell down on
it. It has really been a bummer
and seems to be getting bigger by
the minute.
Maybe I did it subconsciously
to keep from going through the
Atlanta airport again. Boy, do I
have memories of going through
the Atlanta airport.
The first timelI saw the Atlanta
airport, it was right after World
War II. It was iin a Quonset hut,
like the ones in WWV II. You could
go out the back door, stand on the
wooden platform, and watch the
planes land.
I drove out there to see my
father, A. Wade Blake, and have
lunch with him. Lunch was a
ham sandwich and a Coke. He
was on his way to Chicago and I
was on my way back to work at
Rich's.
My next trip to the airport was


several months later when I was
going to the wedding of my sis-
ter, Shirley, in Bartow. It was one
of those red eye flights that left at
2 a.m. I set my hat on fire. This
caused me to get a lot of dirty
looks from people that could
function at 2 a.m.
My hat was velvet with a huge
bunch of floating feathers on the
side. I no longer smoke or wear a
hat.
On the way back, my seat mate
was a chiropractor
from Clearwater who
wanted me to share his
blanket and go dancing
when we landed.
Now the Atlanta air-
port is the second
largest in the country
and you can hardly get
in to the terminal. The
last couple of times I
have flown anywhere I I
have felt lucky to get
home. Ava
I flew out to
California to visit Aunt
Irma and see
California. I saw it and
prefer Florida.
A couple of years
after that, I flew to
Florida, and on the


way back, the plane was caught
in a tail wind or something like
that and we. flew around the air-
port until the plane almost'ran
out of gas and we had to fly to
Birmingham to get more gas.
I got a seat in "steerage" on that
trip. I think it-was in a sort of ex-
kitchen area and there were four
seats in a space lined with black
burlap. It looked like the sort of
place you had to sit if you misbe-
haved.


I was starving to death and the
pilot said on the speaker no one
was to leave the plane, that we
would gas up and leave immedi-
ately. I said I would stay if they
gave me some more peanuts.
The lady across the aisle lived
in Birmingham and said she
would scream if they didn't let
her off. I could have screamed,
myself. I guess I am not a very
good traveler.

BHS Junior Class,

Tom Edwards Dodge

Partner for Fundraiser


A Dodge Drive for the Kids
High School Fundraiser is com-
ing to Bartow High School.
The Class of 2007 will partner
with Dodge to raise money for
this year's prom. BHS is one of
only a few high schools in the na-
tion selected to participate in
this program.
Before the football game at
the BHS student parking lot on
Friday, Oct. 21, between 4 and 7
p.m., Dodge vehicles will be
available to adult drivers to ex-
amine and test drive. This won't
be an actual road test but a
short, get-acquainted mini-drive.
For every test drive completed


with a short questionnaire,
Dodge will donate $5 to the BHS
Junior Class. Licensed students,
accompanied by a parent, may
also test drive.
Vehicles will be provided by
Tom Edwards Chrysler Ply-
mouth Dodge. Dealership staff
will volunteer their time to as-
sist with the fundraiser. A
spokesman said there will be no
sales pressure to purchase a ve-
hicle.
Juniors hope supporters of
BHS will check out the latest
automotive innovations from
Dodge and help the class earn
money.


Governor Jeb Bush and First
Lady Columba Bush today
launched a statewide reading in
the arts contest for students in
grades 3-12 focused on the book
"The Lion, the Witch and the
Wardrobe" by C.S. Lewis.
The contest, sponsored by the
Just Read, Florida! initiative,
will coincide with the nationwide
release of the Walt Disney Pic-
tures and Walden Media film ad-
aptation of the renowned story
on Dec. 9.
"The Lion, the Witch and the
Wardrobe is a story many of us
read in school. Now, as the
magic of Narnia takes to the big
screen, we have the opportunity
to share the same adventure
with our children and students,"
said Governor Bush. "This read-
ing contest will bring the story of
the Wardrobe to life, encourag-
ing creativity and allowing stu-
dents to share their own vision
of the timeless.story."
The.contest, "Florida's Jour-
ney into the Land of Narnia," is
open to all students in grades
three through 12 in public, pri-
vate and home schools.
Winners will receive prize
packages including a private


screening of the movie, a week-
end stay at Disney's Swan and
Dolphin Resort, dinner at Orlan-
do's Medieval Times, movie
memorabilia and more.
Teachers of winning students
and their classrooms also will re-
ceive prize packages.
"Arts and education work
hand-in-hand. Music, theater,
media and visual arts can all be
used to express the vision of
what a student experiences
through reading," said Mrs.
Bush. "Not only are students rec-
ognized for their efforts, teachers
will also be rewarded for their
creative implementation of read-
ing and learning in the class-
room."
In addition to contest rules
and deadlines, educators can
find free posters, educator guides
and lesson plans created and
provided by Walden Media.

Florida Plans"'Sweet'

Campaign For Honey


Florida beekeepers and pack-
ers are exploring the creation of
a marketing cooperative to help
the state's honey industry sur-
vive the growing onslaught of
cheap imported honey.
"Our state's honey industry
has suffered on several fronts in
recent years," Florida Agricul-
ture Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson said. "In addition to
the destruction of honeybee colo-
nies caused by mites and hurri-
canes, the flood of cheap im-
ported honey has pushed our
state's honey producers and
packers to the brink of economic
disaster."
In response to growing con-
cerns about the continued viabil-
ity of this crucial segment of
Florida's agriculture industry,
Bronson has directed his division
of marketing and development to
work with representatives of the
honey industry to develop strate-
gies to strengthen Florida's posi-
tion in the marketplace.



Obituary


John Ed
Ward
John Ed Ward, 84, of Lake
Wales, died of heart failure Sun-
day, Oct. 9, 2005, at Palm Gar-
den of Winter Haven.
Born in Bonifay on Dec. 10,
1920, Mr. Ward moved to Lake
Wales from Darlington, Fla., 36
years ago.
He was a fork lift operator at
Citrus World in Lake Wales.
SMr. Ward was preceded in
death by his parents, Willey and
Rose Ward.
He is survived by his wife,
Veleria Ward; one daughter,
Louise Tucker of Bartow; two
brothers, Hubert Ward of Lake
Wales and W.F. Ward of Mul-
berry; one sister, Florence of
Darlington, Fla.; two grandchil-
dren; four great-grandchildren;
and six great-great-grandchil-
dren.
Visitation: Wednesday, Oct,
12, from 10 to 11 a.m., at Whid-
den-McLean Funeral Home in
Bartow.
The funeral will follow
Wednesday at 11 a.m., at the fu-
neral home, with Hilton Bran-
non officiating.
Interment: Homeland Ceme-
tery.


Marketing representatives
met with several producers and
packers last week to seek input
and explore the creation of a co-
operative.
They discussed areas where
vertical integration might be ap-
plicable, development of quality
standards and specifications,
'and development of brand
awareness for Florida honey.
In Florida, there are approxi-
mately 1,200 registered beekeep-
ers, including hobbyists. The
number of commercial producers
which includes those with 500
or more hives currently
stands at just over 100.
With approximately 205,000
honeybee colonies, Florida ranks
third in U.S. honey production
behind California and North Da-
kota.
Yielding an average 98
pounds of honey per colony, Flor-
ida produced more than 20 mil-
lion pounds of honey in 2004 val-
ued at more than $20 million.
The vast majority of Florida
honey is shipped out of state and
commercially blended with
honey from other sources before
it enters the marketplace, essen-
tially as a generic product. But
foreign imports which are be-
ing sold at 25 percent to 50 per-
cent below Florida prices are
squeezing Florida producers out
of this market.
"Our goal is to market the
unique quality attributes of Flor-
ida honey," Bronson said. "We
want to raise consumer aware-
ness about Florida honey and its
value as a distinct product, not
simply part of a mix."
Florida honey producers and
packers who want information
about the formation of the mar-
keting cooperative can contact
Jerry Latner, president of the in-
dustry steering committee, at 1-
877-832-3268 or e mailto:bee-

Fire Prevention Week Focuses

On Safety In the Home


TALLAHASSEE Most fatal
fires happen in homes and at
least half of those are prevent-
able, according to statistics from
the State Fire Marshal's Office.
Having a working smoke
alarm is a must when it comes to
fire safety, said State Fire Mar-
shal Tom Gallagher, but equally
important are practicing an es-
cape plan and avoiding fire risks.
Gallagher is urging Floridi-
ans to check their smoke alarms
and rehearse an escape plan dur-
ing Fire Prevention Week, which
began Sunday.
"If a fire occurs, you may have
only a few seconds to escape,"
Gallagher said. "That's why it is
critical to have a plan that you
have practiced and memorized."
Last year, 415 people died in
Florida and 790 were injured
due to fires. While the very
young and the very old are typi-
cally the most vulnerable to
death or injury from fire, the
highest number of deaths in
2004 was among men between
the ages of 41 and 50.
The leading causes of fires in
homes are cooking, heaters, elec-
trical overloads, worn or dam-
aged wiring, smoking and can-
dles. In fact, the number of fires
caused by candles doubled na-
tionwide between 1980 and
2002, when 130 people died and
1,350 were reported injured as a
result of candle fires. In Florida
last year, candle fires were
blamed for two deaths and 42 in-
juries.
The National Fire Protection
Association has made "Use Can-
dles With Care" the theme of its
national efforts during Fire Pre-
vention Week.
Statistics show the majority of
candle fires begin in a bedroom
after the occupant has fallen
asleep. Common causes of candle
fires are combustible material
coming too close to the candle,
the candle being left unattended,
or someone (often a child) play-
ing with a candle. The number of
candle fires in homes has been
noted to double in December.
"That is why you should never
leave a candle burning unat-

tended and should put it out be-
fore going to bed," Gallagher
said. He also offered these im-
portant fire safety tips for the
home:
Burn candles in a sturdy
holder and keep them away from
children, pets and curtains.
Use flashlights, not candles,
in j ack-o-lanterns.
Use a flashlight instead of
candles during a power outage.
Keep an approved fire extin-
guisher in the kitchen.
Do riot use frayed extension
cords and do not place extension
cords under a rug or near a heat
source.
Do not overload electrical
outlets or extension cords.
a If you smoke, do not smoke
in bed and never walk away
from a lighted cigarette.
a Keep ovens, broiling pans
and kitchen exhaust fans clean.
With small children in the
house, turn handles away from
the front of the stove.
o When frying foods on stove,
do NOT leave the stove unat-
tended.
Do not wear loose or flowing
sleeves when cooking.
If a fuse or circuit breaker
should blow or keeps tripping,
find out why.

During Fire Prevention Week,
Gallagher is asking Floridians
to:
Plan escape routes from
every room and floor to an out-
door meeting place. Be sure eve-
ryone in the family knows and
practices them. If there is only
one exit from the upper floor,
have slides or rope ladders avail-
able and practice proper use.
o Install smoke detectors on
every floor and in hallways lead-
ing to bedrooms.
e Test smoke alarms and
change smoke alarm batteries
when changing the clocks for
daylight savings time in the
spring and fall months.

fice offers seasonal and holiday

During Fire Prevention Week,
the Bureau of Fire Prevention in
the State Fire Marshal's Office
will be visiting college campuses
to provide targeted fire safety in-
formation to students, many of
whom are living on their own for
the first time.
And, for the third consecutive
year, Gallagher has sent third-
graders something to inspire
them to discuss fire safety with
their families a growth chart
designed with age-appropriate
fire safety tips. The third grade
has been identified as a good age
to begin more in-depth fire
safety discussions. In 2003, Gal-
lagher issued a calendar and in
2004 bookmarks, both loaded
with fire safety tips.
Since 2001, the State Fire
Marshal's Office, the Federal Al-
liance for Safe Homes (FLASH)
and the Florida Fire & Emer-
gency Services Foundation have
teamed up to provide more than
12,000 smoke detectors that
have been installed for free in at-
risk home in communities
throughout Florida.

The agency for Workforce .In-
novation announced that Flori-
da's minimum wage will be $6.40
per hour effective Jan. 1, for all
hours worked in Florida.
This represents an increase of
25 cents over the current state
minimum wage of $6.15 per
hour. Florida's minimum wage
was created in a constitutional
amendment approved by voters
on Nov. 2, and covers all employ-
ees in the state covered by the
federal minimum wage.
The Agency for Workforce In-
novation is to perform an annual
calculation to establish a new
minimum wage each year.
The constitution also requires
the adjusted minimum wage to
be published.
The increase in the minimum
wage this year represents a four
percent change in the federal
consumer price index for urban
wage earners and clerical work-
ers in the south region for the
12-month period prior to Sept.
1.
Florida's new minimum wage
will be $1.25 more than the cur-
rent $5.15 federal minimum
wage.
Employers must pay their em-
ployees a wage not less than the
amount of the hourly state mini-
mum wage for all hours worked

The contest offers professional
and novice categories, with a
special student category for high

The definitions of "employer,"
"employee," and "wage" for state
purposes are the same as those
established under the federal
Fair Labor Standards Act
(FLSA).
For "tipped employees" meet-
ing eligibility requirements for
the tip credit under the FLSA,
"employers may count tips actu-
ally received as wages under the
FLSA, but the employer must
pay "tipped employees" a direct
wage in an amount equal to the
minimum wage of $6.40 minus
$3.02 (which, as required by
Florida's Constitution, is the
2003 tip credit existing under
the FLSA), or a direct hourly
wage of $3.38 on January 1,
2006.
Employees who are not paid
the minimum wage may bring a
civil action in a court of compe-
tent jurisdiction against the em-
ployer or any person violating
Florida's minimum wage law.
The state attorney general
also may bring an enforcement
action to enforce the minimum
wage.

guiding standards under the

FWC Stresses Deer Hunting

Rules To Combat Disease

As fall hunting seasons get
under way, Florida wildlife offi-
cials are reminding hunters it is
illegal to bring home carcasses of
any species of the family Cer-
vidae (e.g. deer, elk and moose)
from 10 states and one Canadian
province where chronic wasting
disease (CWD) has been de-
tected.
The states and Canadian
province where the deadly dis-
ease has been detected are New
Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Wyo-
ming, South Dakota, Nebraska,
Wisconsin, Illinois, New York,
West Virginia and Alberta, Can-
ada.
For the most up-to-date CWD
coverage, visit the United States
Department of Agriculture's Web
site at www.aphis.usda.gov/vs/
nahps/cwd/.
"To date, no cases of CWD
have been found in Florida, and
we want to keep it that way,"
said deer program coordinator
Robert Vanderhoof of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's division of hunting
and game management.
"Hunters can help by observ-
ing the restrictions placed on
bringing carcasses in from other
areas where CWD is a concern."
CWD, first identified in Colo-
rado in 1967, is a disease that af-


fects the central nervous system
and is related to "mad cow" dis-
ease in cattle and scrapie in
sheep. The disease always
proves fatal to the infected ani-
mal, but there are no known
cases of it being transmitted to
people, domestic animals or live-
stock.
Hunters still can bring back
de-boned meat from any CWD-
affected region, as well as fin-
ished taxidermy mounts, hides,
skulls, antlers and teeth as long
as all soft tissue has been re-
moved.
Whole, bone-in carcasses and
parts are permitted to be
brought back to Florida if they
were harvested from non-af-
fected CWD areas.
"Officers will be on the look-
out for violations of the rules on
importation of animal carcasses
into the state," said Julie Jones,
chief of FWC's Division of Law
Enforcement.
"Our first priority is to edu-
cate hunters about this issue,
and we will investigate all situa-
tions involving CWD and take
appropriate enforcement action,"
she said.
"It's very important that we
keep this disease out of Florida."

By JEFF THORNBURG

Friday night, before a capac-
ity crowd at Frank S. Battle
Field in Fort Meade, the Bartow
Yellow Jackets pulled out a
thrilling one-point win in double
overtime over the defending
class A state chinimps Miners, 21-
20.
The MNine-rsL controlled the
first half, mounting a 14-point
halftime lead, on runs of seven
yards by quarterback Danny
Grant and 17 yards by running
back Ortc-ri,:. McCaiebh, during a
three-minute span ita the second
quarter.
"Both tearns played very
physical", said Bartow Coach
Shawn Killets. "I was proud of
our players, they didn't quit af-
ter trailing by 14 at halftime."
The second half belonged to
the Yellow Jackets, scoring on
back-to-back possessions, while
the Bartow defense held Fort
Meade in check, allowing no first
downs, forcing five punts, block-
ing one, and recovering a Miner
fumble.
Jacket running back Brandon
Bridges scored from one yard out
in the third quarter. The 59-
yard, 10-play drive consumed
just under four-and-a-half min-
utes.
The extra point kick failed
and the Miners were up by eight.
Bartow got to within two with
another 'big drive late in the
third quarter.
Quarterback Devarious Cook
faked to the running back and
tossed a seven-yard pass to a
wide open Steven Wesley in the


end zone. The 11-play drive took
four minutes and covered 75
yards. The drive was highlighted
by a 53-yard pass from Cook to
Grant Glover.
Trailing by two, Bartow was
successful on the two-point con-
version on Phillip Jackson's run,
tying the game at 14 entering
the fourth quarter.
The fourth quarter was a
stalemate. Bartow did have a
couple of chances to win in regu-
lation. Wesley sacked the Miner
punter on fourth down, setting
up Bartow on the Fort.Meade
15-yard line; however, three
plays later Fort Meade inter-
cepted a Cook pass.
Later a Miner fumble, with
less than 10 seconds, led to a 35-
yard field goal attempt, which
fell short, setting up overtime.
Neither team scored in the
first overtime. Fort Meade had a
40-yard field goal blocked by
Jackson, and Bartow committed
a fumble.
In the second overtime, Bar-
tow scored on a four-yard run by
Jamal Burgess, and Stout added
the extra point. Bartow was up
by seven.
Two plays later Fort Meade
responded when McCalebb
scored from one yard out. The
Miners took a time out and de-
cided to go for the two-point con-
version and the win.
'McCalebb took the hand-off
and struggled to the goal line.
Officials called his knee was
down before the ball crossed the
goal line, preserving the win for
Bartow.
Bartow improves to 4-3 while


the Miners fall to 3-3. Fort Me-
ade jumps back into district play
Friday against Admiral Farra-
gut, while Bartow will enjoy a
much welcome open date.
