BMA Terminal Bids Due


Dec. 8; Expected Costs


Are Far Over Budget


^ '. "- .i RESIDENTS OF OAK Avenue in Bartow are going a little batty
S ., about some new tenants. Tina Gray called in Cyndi Marks, executive
4j ..+ -2 director of The Florida Bat Center (left), to help her rid her historical
i- .: :o\;: home of the bats. Since bats are protected in the state of Florida, Mrs.
Marks uses a humane netting system to encourage the bats to reset-

S- plans to build a bat house for the flying mammals. While bats can be
a little scary in large groups, Danielle Gray (top photo) found a new

are much larger than this little free-tailed bat (above), Mrs. Marks
said many homes in Florida will have small bats. (Staff photos by

'State Of City' Address



Is Thursday At 11:45


This year City Manager Joe DeLegge will
not have to describe hurricane recovery
updates at his State of the City address on
Thursday, Oct. 20.
He will, however, give a report on new
development in Bartow at the luncheon spon-
sored by Citrus & Chemical Bank.
The serving line opens at 11:45 a.m. with
the program beginning promptly at noon.
For over a decade, DeLegge has held the
city manager's position.
Graduating from Santa Fe High School in
1964, he got his bachelor's at the University
of South Florida. He served in the U.S. Navy
for four years.
After spending nine years as a department
manager at Sears, Roebuck & Co., and two
years as a sales representative for Curtis
1000, he worked for the city of Bartow from
*1981 until 1983 as assistant auditor and
clerk, and from 1983 to 1989 as director of
administrative services.
DeLegge left Bartow in 1989 to become city
manager in Madison, and returned to Bartow
in August 1993 as Bartow's city manager.
He served on the State of Florida
Community Development Block Grant
Advisory Council and was appointed by the
governorto serve on the Madison Hospital
Board.
DeLegge is a member of the International
City Managers' Association, the Florida City
and County Managers Association and past
president of the Madison and Bartow Lions
Club.

on this or other Chamber events,, call 533-
7125.


Bids to build Bartow
Municipal Airport's new terminal
and restaurant are due on Dec. 8,
and the city commission plans to
award the contract four days
later.
Current cost estimates are way
over the design budget, commis-
sioners were told Monday by
planners for URS Corp., the air-
port's engineering consultants.
The budget for the 18,000-
square foot building is
$2,575,705. URS told commis-
sioners, meeting as the airport
authority, that the base price for
the building is now projected at
just under $3 million, and added
features such as kitchen equip-
ment and canopies at the two
entrances could add another
$500,000.
Those figures do not include
the estimated cost for aircraft
apron next to the new terminal,
budgeted at $1,361,997 but now
projected at nearly $2.3 million.
The increased cost estimates
reflect not only the skyrocketing
costs of construction materials,
but higher prices generated by
the massive destruction of
Hurricane Katrina, URS plan-
ners told the commission.
Fund Sources
After considering various ways
to cut costs, the commission
instructed Airport Mgr. Cynthia
Barrow to see of the Florida Dept.
of Transportation, which will pay
80 percent, of the cost. ofthe build-.
ing, will increase its budget for
the project. The airport authority
will pay the other 20 percent.
Commissioners expressed less
concern about the additional costs
for the apron. The Federal
Aviation Administration will pay
95 percent of that project, with
the city and the FDOT each pay-
ing 2.5 percent.
Commissioners made final
decisions about the appearance of
the building.
It will be a one-story structure


at the apex of two runways, with
a small two-story section near the
center for air conditioning air
handlers and perhaps a small
storage area.
The exterior walls will be beige
stucco, accented with red bricks.
The roof will be red, and the glass
in windows and doors will have a
blue tint.
The interior of the second-floor
level will have a large mural, and
three one-fifth scale models of P-
51 aircraft will be suspended
from the ceiling.
URS will hold a final planning
meeting with the airport manag-
er on Oct. 24, and will have plans
ready for bidders on Nov. 7.
Restaurant Lease
Commissioners discussed at
length how much rent to charge
for the kitchen and restaurant,
which will occupy 3,950 square
feet of the building. The estimat-
ed cost for kitchen equipment is
$126,310, and commissioners
want to recover that sum plus
rental for the space.
They initially considered a
rental rate of $3,950, but
Commissioners Andy Laurent
and Brian Hinton convinced their
colleagues that the figure would
put the restaurant beyond the
reach of most potential operators.
They finally arrived at a rental
of $2,275 per month for the first
year. The restaurant operator will
pay for utilities metered directly
, to the restaurant, plus the restafi-
rant's share of the air condition-
ing cost each month, and must
provide insurance for the con-
tents of the restaurant, as well as
liability insurance.
Commissioners decided not to
charge the restaurant its share of
insurance coverage on the build-
ing, estimated to be $655 per
month, for the first year, but will
revisit that possibility after one
year.
Eventually, commissioners
said, they want to establish the


rental rate at a percentage of
gross revenues perhaps five
percent with a monthly mini-
mum.
Hangar Approved
By a 4-to-1 vote, commission-
ers approved a request from
Gerry Butterworth, owner of
Florida Aircraft Painting, to build
a 60-by-60-foot aircraft hanger
next to his present business.
Butterworth said he has
received "a very lucrative con-
tract" from Delta Connections,
and that he is no longer consider-
ing selling his business.
Mrs. Barrow recalled that it
took Butterworth four years to
get a permit from the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District, and that she didn't want
to go through that again.
Longworth cited that problem as
his reason for voting against
amending Butterworth's lease.
The commission's approval
carried the stipulation that the
hangar can be used only for
Butterworth's business activities,
and cannot be used for storage of
an airplane or anything else. It
also is contingent on his getting
SWFWMD approval before con-
struction begins.
The commission also:
Amended its standard lease
to prohibit subleases without the
authority's approval; to allow the
airport to refuse to honor renewal
options if a building is needed for
airport purposes; to allow for
negotiation of new rental rates
when renewal options are exer-
cised; and to recapture rental
increases from years when the
authority does not increase rates
by the amount of the Consumer
Price Index.
Ratified the lease of Bldg.
273 to Southern Air Compressor
Service, Inc., for $1,600 per
month for six months, continuing
on a month-to-month basis after
six months.


School Board Denies


Bok Academy Charter


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer

After a long, public battle over
the deficiencies in the Edward W.
Bok Academy charter school
application, Polk County school
board members voted 5-to-2 on
Tuesday to uphold the superin-
tendent's recommendation to
deny the application at their
meeting Tuesday.
The two opposing votes in
favor of granting the charter -
were cast by Board Members
Margaret Lofton and Lori
Cunningham.


Prior to Superintendent Gail
McKinzie's recommendation,
many comments were made by
members of Lake Wales Charter
Schools, teachers who would be
involved with the Bok Academy
program, potential students, and
members of the Lake Wales com-
munity.

Public Support
Robin Gibson, who is on the
board of trustees for Lake Wales
Charter Schools, said their group
had been working diligently on
the problems listed by the char-
ter review committee and sent


that information to individual
school board members.
One of the problems cited was
a lack of evidence of public sup-
port for Bok Academy. Gibson
said that while the previous sup-
port letters had only been gener-
al support for the charter school
program, the group had since col-
lected letters of support from
more than 25 major groups in
Lake Wales specifically for Bok
Academy.

tendent for the charter schools in

Bartow's Women's Care

Center Loses Resident's

Bicycle To Theft Tuesday


Stealing from the rich and giving to the
poor may have been okay for Robin Hood, but
stealing |from the poor is just wrong.
On TO'esday night, someone broke into the
Women'g. Care Center in Bartow, slitting the
screen and stealing one of the resident's per-
sonal bicycles.
A bicycle that was the homeless woman's
only mode of transportation.
"Thati'. about as low as you can get, steal-
ing froni the homeless," Director Mary Smith
said. I
The crime was discovered around 5 a.m. on
Wednesday morning, when a resident left to
have a baby.
The resident and Ms. Smith discovered the


screen had been cut to allow access to the cen-
ter's locked porch. The thief stole the bike,
then relocked the door.
"This is the first time something like this
has happened," Ms. Smith said. "It's so sad."
With a dependence on donations for so
many needed items, such as food, luxury
items, once stolen are irreplaceable to the res-
idents.
"It's upsetting, as this was her only way to
get around," Ms. Smith said.
The resident is in need of new transporta-
tion, and the Women's Care Center is seeking
a donation from the community of a bicycle
for the resident.
For more information, call 534-3844.

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 our Phase
VIl Expansion Project and the application has been assigned
Docket No. CP06-1-000 at the FERC.

Florida Gas Transmission your clean energy partner

FGT is Florida's leader 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 system that runs from South Texas to Homestead, Florida.
FGT has been 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 Vll Expansion Project refers to Florida Gas
Transmission's proposal to construct three 36-inch natural gas
pipeline loops on the 30-inch West Leg; add 9,800 horsepower at
existing compressor 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 VII 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

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.

Caution This Halloween Hold Grant


Trick-or-treating, celebrations
and decorations are all a part of
the fun of Halloween, and re-
membering to follow a few safety
tips can help ensure the holiday
is not only fun, but safe for all
involved.
The Polk County Sheriffs Of-
fice offers the following tips for
children who trick-or-treat:
As a parent, supervise
young children who trick-or-
treat. Participate in the festivi-
ties yourself, or direct an older
responsible sibling.
Encourage children to walk
in groups. Children should walk
-' not run from house to
house. Trick-or-treaters should
stay away from busy streets.
Stay within your neighbor-
hood and only visit homes you
know, and never enter resi-
dences.
Place reflective safety tape
on children's costumes and treat
bags. Carry working flashlights.
Inspect children's candy be-
fore any is eaten. Only give and


accept wrapped or packaged
candy. Throw away any un-
wrapped treats.
Care should be used when
choosing a costume. Make sure
masks do not obscure a child's
vision. Consider using cosmetics
for a natural mask. T6 avoid
tripping, make sure the costume
is not too long and high heels are
not worn.
Props for costumes such
as swords, knives, etc. should
be soft and flexible replicas, not
the real thing.
When driving, be especially
careful and watch out for chil-
dren trick-or-treating.
Parents also may want to con-
sider other alternatives to trick-
or-treating, such as attending
supervised Halloween events.
Civic clubs, school groups,
merchants and recreation cen-
ters often provide organized
events. With correct supervision,
children can safely participate in
the Halloween holiday tradi-
tions.

Constitutional Rights


Are Not 'Technicalities'


A Tampa television station, in its cover-
age of a murder trial, has said repeatedly
that previous convictions of the accused
were reversed "on technicalities."
It is indeed frustrating to the public, and
in particular to the victims and the families
of victims, when a conviction is over-
turned on appeal.
But to summarily declare that every case
reversed by an appellate court is reversed
"on technicalities" does a great disservice
to our legal system, and to the public's
understanding of it.
Reversals on appeal can generally be
related to such concepts as these:
"The right of the people to be secure in
their persons, houses, papers, and effects,
against unreasonable searches and
seizures, shall not be violated, and. no
Warrants shall issue, but upon probable
cause, supported by Oath or affirmation,
and particularly describing the place to be
searched, and the persons or things to be
seized."
"No person shall be held to answer for a
capital, or otherwise infamous crime,
unless on a presentment or indictment of a
Grand Jury ... nor shall any person be
subject for the same offence to be twice put
in jeopardy of life or limb, nor shall be
compelled in any criminal case to be a wit-
ness against himself, nor be deprived of
life, liberty, or property, wiihput lue
process of law'..."
"In all criminal prosecutions, the
accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy
and public trial, by an impartial jury of the
State and district wherein the crime shall
have been committed. and- to be
informed of the nature and cause of the
accusation; to be confronted, with the wit-
nesses against him; to have compulsory.
process for obtaining witnesses in his
favor, and to have the assistance of counsel
for his defence."
"Excessive bail shall .not be required,
nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and
unusual punishments inflicted."
"No State shall make .or enforce any law
which shall abridge the privileges or
immunities of citizens of the United States;,
nor shall any State deprive any} person of:
life, liberty, or property, without due
process of law; nor deny to any person
within its jurisdiction the equal protection
of the laws."


The first four protections are set forth in
the Bill of Rights to the United States
Constitution (the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and
Eighth Amendments), and the fifth in the
Fourteenth Amendment.
Granted, persons of good conscience can
and do disagree on the application of those
Constitutional protections and the case
law that has developed around them in
specific cases.
For example, we take vigorous excep-
tion to the Florida Supreme Court's find-
ing of violation of probable cause in the
Darryl Moody murder case. A police offi-
cer spotted and stopped Moody, whom he
believed correctly to be driving while
his license was suspended, and as a result
of that stop, a murder weapon was found.
The conviction was overturned wrong-
fully, we believe.
But the Fourth Amendment protection
against unlawful searches and seizures is a
vital right. It protects the innocent as well
as the guilty.
Cases have been dismissed when the
state failed to bring the defendant to trial
within the limits established by Florida's
speedy trial law. That is not a technicality;
it is an error by the state.
Convictions have been reversed when
defendants confessed without being prop-
erly advised of their Fifth Amendment
right not to be forced to be a witness
against themselves, or of their right to
counsel.
These are not "technicalities;" these are
fundamental protections of individual
rights established more than 200 years ago.
We may not always agree with the
results of their application, but our legal
system relies on them. We would have it
no other way.

Better Planning Needed


LAKELAND The reception
and results that the taxpayers and
disgruntled residents of Polk
County who have complained
and pleaded to the county com-
missioners have gone unattended
regarding overbuilding and over-
crowding of the lands, are con-

proven that its priorities are not
with the people, but with the


developers.
Much has been said and many
letters from concerned taxpayers
of Polk County written regarding
the apparent disregard for designs
to discontinue construction within
their districts. Apparently, plans
and studies have failed to con-
vince the commissioners to limit
the amount or number of struc-
tures to be built, overcrowding,

issuing permits that are responsi-
ble for locating structures in
flood-prone districts and disre-
garding the importance to provide
methods for sufficient drinking
water, sewage facilities, roads,
schools and solid waste disposal.
At this point, it appears a
moratorium on all construction
will help mend some of the exist-
ing problematic congestion and
offer some resolution to what we
have experienced and are continu-
ing to endure.
We who continue to live within
this turmoil have been dismayed,
because of the complete disrespect
and apathy shown regarding the
trend to permit these existing con-
ditions to organize this magnitude
of confusion, for those who care.
Condemning is easy but
restoration is difficult, and it has
taken several years, through the
auspices of former and existing
county commissioners, for the
existing problems to crest. Now is
the time to create a new and better
leadership for Polk County.

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

NOPD Inspires Little Confidence


To paraphrase an old military
joke:
What is the difference between
the New Orleans Police Dept. and
the Boy Scouts?
The Boy Scouts have adult
leadership..
A few days ago, a TV crew
shot footage of two NOPD offi-
cers beating a man whom they
claimed to be drunk, while a
third cop went after the camera-
man.
All three have been charged
with battery.
Members of the NOPD came
in for another 15 minutes of fame
during Hurricane Katrina when
they were captured on TV joining
with other looters in emptying
the shelves of New Orleans
department stores.
And in the succeeding days,
250 of them reportedly went
AWOL; the chief resigned in dis-
grace.
The assault on the customer at


a convenience store -who denies
that he was drunk does not
rise to a Rodney King occasion,
but it does raise a couple of ques-
tions:
Since when is being drunk in
New Orleans a' crime? Outside of
the Cafe DuMonde, with its
world famous coffee and
beignets, sobriety is almost a mis-
demeanor. If every person in
New Orleans who is drunk in
public were arrested, the conven-
tion center that proved inade-
quate for evacuees-in-waiting
would be similarly inadequate to
hold all the miscreants.
If you're a rogue cop intent
on roughing up a suspect, don't
you look around first to be sure
the TV cameras aren't rolling?
Being corrupt does not automati-
cally require being stupid.
New Orleans isn't exactly my
second home, but I have visited a
few times. It has been my obser-
vation that people who live else-


where in Louisiana feel about
New Orleans the same way that
many Floridians feel about
Miami: please don't judge the
entire state by that one city.
In my visits, I have admittedly
(and gratefully) had only micro-
cosmic experiences with New
Orleans' finest.
On one visit, with a fellow
Florida National Guard officer,
my van disappeared. He and I
tried to flag down several police
cars; in each case, the officers sim-
ply waved and grinned at us and
drove past.
We finally went to an intersec-
tion and when a police car
stopped at a red light, we got in.
The disappearance was my
own fault; I parked at curbside
late on a Tuesday night, and the
sign warning that it became a
tow-away, zone at 1 a.m.
Wednesday didn't soak in.
The impounding fee was justi-
fied; the inability to flag down a


police car makes a joke of the
classic police motto: "To Serve
and Protect."
On another visit, throngs of
shoppers on one of the Crescent
City's main streets had to walk
around a man who was passed
out drunk on the sidewalk as
police cars drove past. Needless
to say, I did not try to flag one
down.
On yet another visit, with our
children, an officer patrolling on
a bicycle finished a soft drink,
and simply put the empty bottle
on the sidewalk.
"Do you suppose they don't
have a litter law in New
Orleans?" one of my children
asked.
Like most parents, we raised
our children to respect police offi-
cers, and to call on them in time
of need.
You've got to wonder what
parents in New Orleans teach
their kids.

History From Our Files
Compiled from the files of The Democrat by Loyal Frisbie


Fifty Years Ago


V.E. Dozier, Bartow area super-
vising principal, was elected
president of District 9, Florida
Education Assn., at the annual
district meeting in Lakeland yes-
terday.
Leon Hebb, owner of much
local rental property, won a dou-
ble victory over the city of Bartow
in circuit court yesterday when
Judge Don Register signed two
orders in his favor: (1) that the
city does not have the authority
to order him to demolish a house,
as being in dangerous condition;
(2) reversing Hebb's conviction in
city court on a charge of refusing
to obey a court order.

Florida Offers Avian Flu Surveillance


The Polk County Democrat OA


Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Department is
increasing its surveillance pro-
gram of poultry in a stepped-up
effort to look for virulent strains
of avian influenza.
Avian influenza is a serious
disease concern for poultry pro-
ducers and animal health offi-
cials.
There are various influenza
strains which vary considerably
in severity. Some are devastat-
ing to domestic poultry. Recent
information indicates an Asian
strain can infect people and
there is concern that the virus
may mutate and allow for peo-
ple-to-people spread.
Currently, the Asian strain is
spread to people by infected
birds. Infected birds shed flu vi-
rus in their saliva, nasal secre-
tions and feces. It is believed
that most cases of bird flu infec-
tion in humans have resulted
from contact with infected poul-
try or contaminated surfaces.
Symptoms of bird flu in hu-
mans have ranged from typical
flu-like symptoms including fe-
ver, sore throat and aches to eye
infections, pneumonia and se-
vere respiratory diseases
"Its important for the public
to know that this Department is
aggressively looking for any
signs of dangerous strains of
avian influenza and has an ongo-
ing outreach program to educate



Obituary


the industry and poultry flock
owners about these diseases,"
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Charles Bronson
said.
The Department's Division of
Animal Industry is increasing its
collection and testing of samples,
but the division has had a test-
ing program for more than 20
years.
Samples are regularly col-
lected and tested from backyard
flocks and commercial poultry
breeding flocks. For the period of
August 2004 through August
2005, the department tested ap-
proximately 4,000 birds from
over 300 premises or farms.
Starting October 2005, the de-
partment is implementing two
enhanced programs.
The first is a surveillance pro-
gram which will involve increas-
ing the number of birds tested at
small animal sales sites, live
bird markets, county fairs and
exhibitions an( otanicals.
Under this,-:ogram, it is pro-
jected that 6,000 birds will be
tested;
The second program is a sur-
veillance program which will tar-
get the commercial poultry in-
dustry.
This program is projected to
test an additional 7,800 birds
from 36 laying complexes and 25
broiler and pullet premises.
All together, it is estimated

that 15,488 birds, representing
commercial and backyard flocks
throughout Florida, will be
tested by the department, a 387
percent increase from the previ-
ous year.
While the stepped-up testing
is not directly related to the re-
cent outbreak of Asian flu, Bron-
son says it's important that Flor-
ida take every step possible to
prevent the introduction of bird
flu in this state.
The United States does not
permit the importation of poul-
try from areas of the world with
serious strains of avian influ-
enza.
Florida requires all poultry
coming into the state to have a
permit for entry and to originate
from avian influenza-free flocks
in addition to meeting other im-
port requirements.
The Department has 35
authorized agents trained to col-
lect samples and conduct testing
at two diagnostic laboratories.
Veterinarians and others
working with birds also are re-
quired to report diseases sus-
pected of being influenza.
Quarantine and other emer-
gency plans are already in place
to quickly eradicate such a dis-
ease should it be found in Flor-
ida.

There was a small-pox scare
in Fort Meade in 1897. A Cuban

J.J. Hooker, marshal and collec-

and P.D. Buzzi, councilmen.

Finance Essay Contest

Offered For Teens


Ace Hardware Joins Pirate Lennon Jordan


An essay contest aimed at en-
couraging investor education
among middle and high school
students in Florida has been an-
nounced.
The contest, "Cash in on Your
Money Smarts," offers teens a
chance at more than $7,500 in
prizes statewide, with a top indi-
vidual award of $750 for one stu-
dent in each of five geographic
regions.
"This contest offers Florida
teens a unique opportunity to be
rewarded for their knowledge of
smart investing and their per-
suasive writing skills," said Flor-
ida's Chief Financial Officer Tom
Gallagher. "Learning these
valuable skills now will help
pave the way for a lifetime of fi-
nancial success."
The essay contest is part of
Gallagher's statewide public
education initiative, ."Your
Money, Your Life," which is de-
signed to help Floridians make
better informed financial deci-
sions.
Gallagher launched the pro-
gram in 2004 after learning that
many Floridians put themselves
at financial risk by waiting too
late to save and by running up
debt.
The program includes a com-
prehensive educational website
available at www.yourmoneyy-
ourlife.org.
The essay contest, "Cash in on
Your Money Smarts," is open to
Florida teens who are between
the ages of 14 and 18.
Students must submit a 1000-
word essay to the Florida De-
partment of Financial Services


by Jan. 27.
Essays may be submitted
electronically or by mail, in Eng-
lish or Spanish.
Each essay contest partici-
pant will be asked to consider
and write a comprehensive re-
sponse to the following question:
"If you had $100,000 to invest,
what would you invest in and
why?"
The response should address
why you would invest in certain
companies or products, what in-
formation you used to back up
your investment decisions, and
how investing can help you meet
your money goals.
Judging the contest will be
representatives from the Florida
Council on Economic Education,
a non-profit organization that
supports financial education ini-
tiatives in schools and busi-
nesses statewide.
In addition, department em-
ployees Fred Varn and Greg
Thomas, who also serve on the
Leon County and Wakulla
County School Boards respec-
tively, will participate in the
judging process.
Cash prizes will be awarded
to each of the top.three essays in
five regions across the state, for
a total of 15 winners.
First place offers a $750 cash
reward, second place garners
$500 and third place is $250.

PIRATE LENNON Jordan, 2005 chamber
president-elect, has struck again. First it was The
Polk County Democrat, sponsor of Jordan's treas-
ure hunt; then Community National Bank fell vic-
tim to Pirate Jordan; and now Ace Hardware has
surrendered to this dastardly pirate and given
him treasure for his chest. Ace Hardware is lo-
cated at 1350 East Church Street in Bartow, 519-
9339. They will be hosting Jordan's treasure chest
Oct. 14-21.
The treasure hunt is a fundraising event for
the Greater Bartow Chamber of Commerce and
will culminate at the Chamber's Annual Meeting


on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2006. The theme for the
event is "Treasures of the Chamber."
Beware Bartow Chamber members, as you
might be the next in line to be raided, plundered,
and charged a handsome fee. To avoid walking
the plank, contact Neal Duncan at the Chamber,
533-7125, to sign up for a more dignified ransom.
Pirate Jordan's first mates from Ace Hardware -r
are Phillip Henderson and Trina Waits. They
were spared a trip to Davy Jones Locker by con-

with other concerned conserva-
tion organizations to use this
program as a tool to recruit and
train tomorrow's safe hunters.
The Shikar Safari Club al-
ready has partnered with the
FWC and is providing the fund-
ing for initial start-up costs, but
the program is going to require
substantially more assistance if
it is to be successful.
While introducing Florida's
youth to the hunting tradition,
the Youth Hunting Program can
benefit landowners by assisting
them with their wildlife manage-
ment practices by helping them
reduce does, hogs and other spe-
cies the biologists want to man-
,age on their prrop,_.rty. .
i, All.the landowners or hunting
clubs heed to do is provide access
to their land, and the FWC will
do the rest.
"We promise to run safe, posi-
tive, educational and mentored
youth hunts and are looking for
all types of year-round hunting
opportunities ,including deer,
turkey, hogs, exotics, dove, small
game, and waterfowl," said Alan
Busenbark, FWC's hunter safety
business manager.
"The goal for the first year of
the program is to train at least
25 volunteers throughout the
state to be huntmasters to lead
future youth-training hunts.
Along with enlisting these volun-
teers, another goal is to establish
landowner relationships and se-
cure additional funding to en-
sure the future growth of the
program," Busenbark said.
Those interested in donating
a weekend youth hunt on your
property, volunteering time and
expertise in planning and lead-
ing youth hunts, or sponsoring

Cecil David Butler, Jr., left this life on
October 13, 2000. Now we visit a marble
stone which reads "Your work on earth
is done", but know in our hearts he still
works everyday to protect his family
from above. His grandchildren say
"Papa's fishing' with the angels" because
they loved fishing and camping with him.
This October marks the anniversary of
five years. Years of grief, mourning and
tears but also years of joy, new births
and a torn family reunited. Daddy, not
a day goes by that we don't shed a tear
for your absence or crack a smile for
your angelic presence. Though you're'm
not here in body, we know you've been
here all along. You were there when
your new grandchildren were born,
when your daughter was married,
even when were grieving the loss of
others. Our memories of you fills our
hearts and knowing you walk by our
side daily comforts our souls.
Until that glorious day we cross that
Golden Gate in heaven and once
again embrace you with a hug,
we'll see you in our thoughts and
dreams and hold you within our hearts.
We love you and miss you.

The Polk County Democrat


October 13, 2005










(Continued from Page 1A)

Lake Wales, spoke passionately
about the need for Lake Wales to
have a charter middle school to
smooth the flow from the charter
elementary schools to the charter
high school.
He said that they had done
everything to address the points
raised by the charter review com-
mittee, and that Lake Wales
deserved to have a charter mid-
dle school like the other commu-
nities have.
Robert Sullivan, president of
Historic Bok Sanctuary, said that
he believed that Edward Bok
would be proud of the effort to
create this middle school not
because it is named after him,
but because he would be excited
about the ideas that were behind
the creation of this middle school.
He quoted Bok's motto, "Make
the world a bit better or more
beautiful because you have lived
in it," and said that the sanctu-
ary would work to further that
goal by providing special educa-
tional opportunities for the stu-
dents at Bok Academy, which
could also be shared by other stu-
dents.
Several students from Lake
Wales expressed their support for
the application, saying that they
hoped to take advantage of the
programs in areas such as tech-
nology and foreign language in
their home communities, as they
currently had to go to Union
Academy in Bartow instead.

Recommendation of Denial
After these comments, Dr.
McKinzie explained how she
decides whether to recommend or
approval or denial of charter
school applications. She said that
she first looks at the letter of the
law so that she is fair and treats
all applicants in a similar fash-
ion.
She said she recommended


Florida Southern College's
Center for Florida History will
present Tracy Jean Revels at the
Florida Lecture Series on Oct.
20.
Revels will discuss her book "
Grander in Her Daughters: Flor-
ida's Women During the Civil
War" beginning at 7 p.m. in the
William M. Hollis Seminar Room
on the Florida Southern campus.
The lecture is free and open to
the public. A.book signing will
follow the lecture.
A specialist in southern his-
tory, Ms. Revels received her
bachelor's, master's and doctoral
degrees from Florida State Uni-
versity.
She is currently an associate
professor of history at Wofford
College in Spartanburg,. S.C.,
and a member of Phi Beta
Kappa, the Florida Historical So-
ciety, and the Southern Histori-
cal Association.
She has published articles in
"The Florida Historical Quar-
terly"and "Forum: The Magazine
of the Florida Humanities Coun-
cil," as well as book reviews in a
wide range of newspapers and
journals.
Her book "Grander in Her
Daughters: Florida's Women
During the Civil War" (Colum-


denial of the Bok Academy char-
ter because she felt that the read-
ing program's strategies and cur-
riculum were not sufficiently laid
out.
Florida law mandates denial
of charter applications if this
requirement is not met; no other
requirement has such strong lan-
guage.
Dr. McKinzie said that she
was concerned because the appli-
cation only said that Bok
Academy "may use" certain pro-
grams, and that the final deci-
sion would not come until the
teachers were hired and had
agreed upon a program.
This lack of specific language
in the application was inade-
quate because it is later made a
part of the contract the school
board uses to review the progress
and success of charter schools,
she said.
Without a definitive state-
ment, Dr. McKinzie said that she
felt she had no choice but to rec-
ommend disapproval.
After the recommendation, the
school board members each com-
mented on their decisions.

Board Members Decide
Board Member Hazel Sellers
said that she would vote to deny
the application because she
shared Dr. McKinzie's concerns
about the reading program, but
she believed Bok Academy would
eventually become a reality and
that she would be glad when it
did.
Board Member Brenda
Reddout had similar concerns,
and also was concerned about the
rigor of the program. She said
that many people talk about a
rigorous program, but that the
goals often do not reflect that,
and she felt Bok Academy had a
similar problem.
Dr. Reddout also referred to
one of the students who spoke
from Babson Park Elementary


bia, 2004) received the Florida
Historical Society's 2005 Rem-
bert Patrick Prize for the best
scholarly work in Florida his-
tory.
She is also the author of "Wa-
tery Eden: A History of Wakulla
Springs" (Tallahassee, 2000).
Ms. Revels was born and still
resides part time in Madison.


who had said that he wanted to
be able to go to a charter middle
school because he felt the pro-
grams would' give him a bigger
drive to succeed.
She said that Babson Park
Elementary had only become a
charter school in the last year,
and that it had always been one
of the top elementaries in the
county. She said that any school
can be successful, not just char-
ter schools, and that more work
needed to be done to improve the
regular public schools.
Board Member Jack English
said that while he appreciated all
of the work Lake Wales Charter
Schools had done to address the
points raised by the review com-
mittee, the deadline for the appli-.
cation was a stringent require-
ment because it becomes part of
the requirement.
Answers to questions and con-
cerns could only be used as sup-
plemental information, he said.
Ms. Lofton, one of the two who
opposed the superintendent's rec-
ommendation for denial, said
that she was concerned why the
review committee had no ques-
tions for the Bok Academy appli-
cation, while all of the other
applicants were given a chance
for explanations.
Ms. Cunningham, who also
voted against the recommenda-
tion for denial, agreed with Ms.
Lofton and said that she thought
the school board should be will-
ing to look past the errors, which
she felt were only minor.
Board Member Frank O'Reilly,
who was not present at the meet-
ing but participated over speak-
er-phone,' said that he had voted
for approval initially, but this
time he would not.
He also was concerned about
the situation for the regular pub-
lic middle schools. He referred to
Sullivan's comments about mak-
ing educational opportunities
available at Historic Bok


Sanctuary, and said, "Why isn't
this being done for McLaughlin
Middle now?"
Board Chm. Kay Fields asked
Dr. McKinzie to repeat her expla-
nation from the work session as
to why the review committee had
no questions about the applica-
tion.
Dr. McKinzie said that they
treat charter school applications
like they would any application,
and once they discover that most
important requirements of the
application have not been met,
there is no further discussion
about whether to approve.
Ms. Fields said that she
remembered when she was writ-
ing grant applications for Girls,
Inc., and that this seemed to be
true in most cases.
Ultimately, she said that she
agreed most with Ms. Sellers,
and that she hoped that Bok
Academy eventually would
become a school.
The roll call vote was 5-to-2 to
reject the charter application.

Reaction

Gibson said that the vote was
"not unexpected."
Dr. Wright said that he was
"highly disappointed.
"I believe we were able to
address all of the review commit-
tee's concerns, but five of the
school board members felt differ-
ently," he said.
Gibson said Lake Wales
Charter Schools will file an
appeal with the Florida Dept. of
Education.-
"I think the application has
substantial merit, and the school
will be a benefit to Lake Wales
students that currently they can
only get by going out of town," he
added.

Lee County to Host Senior
Games State Championships


Governor Jeb Bush an-
nounced Lee County as the host
of the 2006, 2007 and 2008 Flor-
ida Senior Games state champi-
onships.
Sponsored annually by the
Florida Sports Foundation, the
Florida Senior Games state
championships is an Olympic-
style sports festival for Florida's
senior athletes age 50 and older.
The Games are held during two
weekends in early December.
"The Florida Senior Games
provide the state's mature ath-,
letes with an exciting opportu-
nity to participate in a wide ar-
ray of sports events that promote
fitness, camaraderie and the
good will of competition," said
Governor Bush. ,
The Lee County host bid was
prepared by the Lee County
Sports Authority, in partnership
with the City of Cape Coral, Lee
County Parks & Recreation and
the School District of Lee
County.
Lee County is the sixth Flor-
ida community to host the an-
nual Florida Senior Games State
Championships.
This year marks the 15th An-
niversary of the Games, and will
be the first time the competition
has been held in the southwest
Florida area since 1998, when
Sarasota hosted the event.
Facilities slated to host events
of the Florida Senior Games
State Championships are the Es-
tero Community Center, Florida
Gulf Coast University, Ida Baker
High School, Cape Coral Festival
Park and Lake Kennedy Senior
Center.
Senior athletes, who compete
in the State Championships
must first qualify at one of
twenty-one local qualifying
games.
Every other year, the Florida
Senior Games State Champion-
ships serves as a qualifier for the


National State Games.
The 2006 State Champion-
ships in Lee County is a qualifier
for the 2007 National State
Games in Louisville, Kentucky.
Al Oerter, a Fort Myers resi-
dent since 1984 and four-time
Olympic Gold Medal winner, will
serve as the honorary chairper-
son for the 2006-08 Florida Sen-
ior Games State Championships.
"The Senior Games, as well as
any c. riipe tit i.-.n involving folks
with a few years on their bones,
is important," said Oerter.
"We should be doing other
things with our lives that don't
involve sitting in front of a tele-
vision. The Senior Games is not
like the Olympic Games 'where
the main focus is winning. It's
just about putting forth an effort
to see how good you can become
at an advanced age."
The 2005 Florida Senior
Games State Championships
will be held Dec. 3 to 11, in The
Villages.
Registration for the 2005
State Championships is cur-
rently underway and materials
can be found at www.fla-
sports.com or can be requested

Reshaping Florida's freshwa-
ter fisheries management proc-
ess is the focus of a unique series
of statewide summits planned by
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC).
Through these summits the
FWC is inviting stakeholders to
organize and team with the
agency. These organized groups
will help the agency identify ar-
eas of public concern and launch
management plans that will
have a major effect on the future
of Florida's freshwater fisheries.
"In the past, the public gave'
input, and FWC staff imple-
mented aplan. In the new proc-
ess, organized stakeholder
groups will partner with the
agency to develop and imple-
ment plans jointly," said Dave
McElveen, FWC planning coordi-
nator.
The first of six zone summits
took place Sept. 24 at Sebring.
Five more are on tap between
now and January. '
Anyone interested in forming
or participating in a freshwater
fisheries stakeholder group is
encouraged to attend these sum-
mits with FWC fishery profes-
sionals.
All meetings are scheduled
from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at:

The initial summit at Sebring
saw a new Highlands County
stakeholder group join the FWC
in an effort to help manage local
lakes and become part of the
new process.
"The first step in establishing
communications with interested
anglers and other resource users
was an online survey by the
FWC's division of freshwater
fisheries management. This sur-
vey enabled us to document con-
cerns and attitudes about our fu-
ture direction, and it gave rise to
these summits," said Dennis
Renfro, FWC summit steering
committee chairman.
The response to the survey
was overwhelming with over
1,500 constituents participating.
Results from this survey helped
structure the format and content
of other summits in various loca-
tions around the state where
survey responses were greatest.

ter fishing survey, or for more in-

Cornucopia


~ Artwork, rom The !eart'


After the critique, Guild members toured the exhibit and discussed some of the com-
ments Brenner made about the artwork.


First place/Best of Show went to Lynne Hughes for her
watercolor painting, "Contentment." Brenner called it "a won-
derful composition," and said it "makes a wonderful impact."


Gene Brenner of Sebring was this year's judge for the
Bartow Art Guild's Cornucopia art exhibit, held in the
Pamplin Art Gallery at the Bartow Public Library.
After teaching school for 30 years, Brenner now travels a lot
judging art shows, and is a restorer of old buildings.
Judging took place on Oct. 5, and was followed by a review
of the winning art.
Brenner opened the critique by thanking the artists for
bringing "such wonderful work" for the exhibit.
"This is not painting for a hobby," he said. "This is painting
as a commitment from your heart. It was very hard to choose."
Honorable mentions went to Richard Bassett, "Good Egg -
Bad Egg," polymer clay; Bonnie Dodson, "Raku Fired Vase,"
ceramic; Carol Frye, "Grains of Sand," mixed media and col-
lage; Elinor Mundy, "Sea Debris," watercolor; Kim Peter,
"Beckoning Chair," mixed media; and Toni Treverton, "Late
Afternoon Cloud, oil.
Best of Show went to Lynne Hughes for her watercolor,
"Contentment;" in second place was Gerri Sage for "Dead
Horse Stamping Mill;" third place went to Pat Heyer for "My
Princess Sarah;" and Miguel Valencia, "Gorden Marsh
Cranes," acrylic, was fourth place.
The deReus People's Choice Award (selected by popular
vote) was given to Martha Post for her watercolor entitled
"Sunrise, Homeland."
The exhibit will be on display through Nov. 28.


Gerri Sage won second place for her acrylic painting "Dead
Horse Stamping Mill." The piece received high praise from Gene
Brenner, who said looking at the painting "makes you want to go
there and just get away."


"Beautiful, well-done work... an overall very good pre-
sentation" is what Brenner said of Elinor Mundy's watercol-
or entitled "Sea Debris." He-gave her an honorable mention,
and said he'd love to have the painting to hang in his own
home. "It's marvelous," he said. "Very pleasant to look at."


., 'The Beckoning Chair," a mixed media
piece by Kim Peter, received an honorable
mention. Brenner said the picture was "very
whimsical," and he loved the use of texture.


Pat Heyer's
watercolor entitled
"My Princess
Sarah" is a "perfect
picture," Brenner
said. She won third
place in the sh6w.


Bartow Art Guild members Lynne Hughes and Richard Bassett discuss
Bassett's polymer clay piece, "Good Egg Bad Egg," which received an hon-
orable mention. "I've never seen anything like this before," Brenner said of the
piece. "It's fantastic; a new media and a wonderful way presented."

By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
Every job is important to
someone, but many jobs do not
get the recognition they deserve.
One such job is the husband
of the pastor's wife.
' This job carries great respon-
sibility and yet has little, if any,
recognition.
I believe, based on years of
personal experience, the craft
and expertise of this particular
job goes well beyond normal ex-
pectations. Not just anyone can
do this job, and there does not
seem to be any special training
afforded the likely candidates.
Unfortunately, those of us
who are in this position are'
pretty much on our own.
Many responsibilities are as-
sociated with this profession. If
the pastor's wife is to accomplish
all she is supposed to do, she
must have some highly special-
ized help. And most congrega-
tions expect quite a lot from the
pastor's wife.
:, Let me just enumerate some
of a highly skilled responsibili-
ties of the pastor's wife's hus-
band.
The first responsibility is
quite basic. This has to do with
selecting the right person to be
the pastor's wife.
This, I assure you, is no easy
task. It takes a highly skilled in-
dividual to make the proper se-
lection.
Not just any woman will do. If
the wrong woman is chosen, the
entire congregation will suffer
for it.
It may take years to find the
right one, with absolutely no
room for mistakes here. Every
congregation expects the hus-
band of the pastor's wife to make
the proper selection, and so they
should.
Once this selection has been
made, the job has just begun. As
difficult as the selection process
is, the next stage is even more
difficult.
If, for example, the wrong
woman has been selected, this
stage becomes a long and ardu-
ous process guaranteeing no suc-
cess at the end.
The second stage is develop-
ing and training the woman in
the fine art of pastoral wifery.
This phase IS quite tricky and
demands the utmost in disci-
pline and guidance.
Contrary to what people may
think, pastor's, wives are not"


born, but carefully developed by
a highly skilled professional.
Every pastor's wife must have
the dexterity to fit into any
situation she may encounter
throughout her career. If the
learning process is fudged here,
her career will be drastically
shortened, much to the dismay
of some unsuspecting congrega-
tion.
She must be able to relate to
any and all women, children,
and old people within the con-
fines of the congregation.
Part of this training has, to do
with fashion and personal pres-
entation. She must be able to
dress for any and all occasions.
Every dress she buys must be
both casual and formal at the
same time. ;She must be able to
develop her wardrobe on a fixed
budget and at the same time,
look glamorous.
However, her glamour must
be very tasteful and modest.
Another important aspect of
this training is in the area of
hospitality.
When she invites people in
the congregation over for lunch,
she must out-do Martha Stewart
- without, of course, going to
prison.
Everything must be abso-
lutely perfect and in good taste,
and more importantly, within a
fixed budget.
One important word about
this is "fixed budget." The
budget we are talking about was
fixed in 1929, just before the
stock market crashed and never
adjusted for inflation.
Then there is the third stage
in the development of the pas-
tor's wife. Although the first two
stages are difficult, this next
stage goes beyond difficulty and
floats on the sea of improbabil-
ity.
This stage has to do with her
involvement in the congregation,
as well as in the community.
To put it simply, she is to be
"all things to all people at all
times." Her musical ability is to
border on the line of genius. Her
teaching acumen is to run the
age gauntlet of 0 to 129. She is
required to explain the most
complex theological question to
everybody ranging from the pre-
born to the aged forlorn.
A good pastor's wife has the
ability to plan, prepare, and exe-
cute banquets for any group
from two to 1,000, and then
clean up afterward.


Everything; of course, is made
from scratch using her own se-
cret recipe, which must. be
shared with every woman in'the
congregation. .
No problem or difficulty is be-
yond her ability to tackle and
solve to the delight of everyone.
Where two people are having
personal problems with ofie an-
other, the pastor's wife' is able to
solve this difficulty in one short
session, pleasing both sides of
the issue.
The pastor's, wife is, able to,
sing every part at the same time.
And if she cannot sing a quartet
by herself, some will look upon
her with a little bit of suspicion.
She must play every instru-
ment the church can afford to
buy, and every style of music to
please everyone within the
sound of the church. chimes.
This is just a sampling of the
responsibilities of the average
pastor's wife. If it wasn't for the
husband of the pastor's wife, she
would never learn to do all these
things as well as she does.
One final aspect of the -hus-
band of the pastor's wife is that
he does all of this incognito.
Working behind the scenes, he

A realistic conception of oneself is sometimes consid-
ered a hall rark oF the mentally healthy person. A person
with low self-esteem is someone who devalues themself,
or who has a deflated sense of self. Likewise, it is possi-
ble to have an inflated sense of self, and we all know how
insufferable .it is to be around those who think they are
better, wiser, funnier, or more likable than they really
are. Some people's view of themselves is thus inflated,
while others have. a deflated sense of self. Most of us have
areas of our lives where we are seemingly oblivious to our
faults. Current psychological research suggests that
there may be some benefit to positive illusions, both
about, ourselves and others. These positive illusions
become self-fulfilling prophecies. That is, we become the
people we think we are, and others live up to or down to,
the expectations we have of them. So, we should think
positively about ourselves and others, and strive to live
* .* up-tq our own expectations.

We are bound to give thanks to God always
for you, brethren, as is fitting, because your
faith is growing abundantly, and the love of
every one of you for one another is increas-
ing. R.SV. 2 Thessalonians 1:3

St. John's Word Helped Him.

Overcome Depression


By ROGER CAMPBELL

When a minister friend came
to see me, it was to share some
bad news: he had been diagnosed
as having Lou Gehrig's disease.
Understandably, he was hav-
ing a tough time handling this
frightening news and was strug-
gling with depression.
The pat answers he had given
to others who were dealing with
catastrophic predictions weren't
working for him; he was in the
pits.
Sharing his fears and frustra-
tions with me, he admitted he'd
been considering suicide.
Hearing the despair in my
friend's voice was not a new ex-
perience for me. My work has of-
ten placed me with people in the
most trying times of their lives.
Nor was this the first time I
had listened to someone describe
the frightening experience of lis-
tening to a doctor's diagnosis of a
terminal disease.
The family of a woman in her
mid-80s who was told that she
had cancer shared their dread of
her predicted pain and soon com-
ing death with me. But to the
surprise of her doctors, this
woman recovered.
Then in her 90s, she received
a proposal for marriage, proving
God still has the last word on life
or death and that He sometimes
surprises the experts.
Missionary Ted Hummel en-
tered the hospital for surgery,
but the surgeon found him so
full of cancer that they didn't op-
erate. Instead, they sent him
home saying he had about six
months to live.
But when Ted related this'
story to me, it was 14 years after
he had been sent home to die,
and at our last contact, he was
headed for another mission field
to serve his Lord.


Still, not all death sentences
are deferred.
Knowing this, I reached for
words to enable this man who
had helped so many others to
find hope and encouragement
whatever the outcome, but found
none.
Actually, I felt somewhat in-
timidated, especially since my
friend admitted I was not the
first from whom he had sought
counsel. I was, in fact, far down
the totem pole.
He had already gone to sev-
eral well-known ministers and
conference speakers and, not
finding any help from them, had
come to me as a last resort.
Now I was faced with two dif-
ficult questions: "What can I tell
this good man that he doesn't al-
ready know?" and "What can I
say that these highly regarded
people haven't already said?"
Then, almost surprising my-
self, I pulled out a drawer on the
lower right side of my desk and
took out a Gospel of St. John
that we kept on hand for chil-
dren and new converts.
Handing this to the learned
and experienced preacher sitting
across the desk from me, I told
him I thought he had been try-
ing to get too deep and needed to
get back to the basics of God's
love.
There is no better place to
bask in the sunlight of God's love
than in the writings of St. John.
Children quickly grasp the
meaning of John 3:16, the favor-
ite verse of millions.
St. John majors in love.
And a refreshing review of
God's love proved to be just what
my friend needed.
If you're feeling down today
and wonder if life is worth living,
you many want to bypass the ex-
perts and see what St. John's
word can do for you.

Download and print haunted
house templates from
www.meals.com. Cut each pat-
tern piece out. Each pattern is
labeled as to the amount of each
you will need (2 ends of the
house, 2 sides, 2 roof pieces, etc.).
Roll out cookie dough on
floured surface with rolling pin. If
it is a warm day, you may wish to
freeze dough for about 15 min-
utes before beginning to work
with it. Roll to approximately 1/4-
inch thickness. Place each pat-
tern piece on the dough and cut
out with a knife around the pat-
tern. Transfer pieces to baking
sheet(s) with a large spatula.
Bake according to cookie dough
package directions until light
golden brown. Smaller pieces will
bake faster than larger pieces.
Remove from oven; cool complete-
ly on wire rack(s).
Prepare royal icing.
Place half the icing in medium
bowl. Place remaining icing in
airtight container to keep it from
drying out. Use wooden pick to
transfer black paste food coloring
into icing; stir to mix well.
Continue to add enough food col-
oring until you get a nice rich
black color. With a spatula spread
a thin layer of black icing over all
pieces of the house and allow to
dry for about 30 minutes or until
hard. Place remaining black icing
into heavy-duty plastic storage
bag; cut tiny corner from bag.
Place some remaining white
icing into heavy-duty plastic stor-
age bag; cut tiny corner from bag.
Pipe windows with white icing on
each of the sides and ends of the
house (see template for place-
ment suggestions). Have fun cre-
ating wacky-shaped windows.
Allow these to dry. Once dry, roll
out some Laffy Taffy with a
rolling pin and cut into shutter
shapes. Have fun with the
shapes, they do not need to be
perfectly rectangular. Make sure
that you have enough pieces for
each window to have two shut-
ters. Use white icing as glue. Pipe
icing next to each window, one
shutter at a time and place a
piece of Laffy Taffy on top to glue
down. Or use the Larffy Taffy for
the windows; pipe black icing
over the Laffy Taffy to create win-
dowpanes.
Refill storage bags as neces-
sary with white or black icing.
Pipe a row of black icing down the
end of each of the short side
pieces of the house. Place next to
the end pieces to begin to form
the house. Assemble all four sides
of the house on prepared card-
board base and allow to dry.
Secure house tp the cardboard
base with icing to keep from slid-
ing by piping icing around the
exterior of the house at the base.
Allow to dry. Once dried, assem-
ble the roof. Pipe icing down the


sides of roof pieces and the top of
the short sides of the base. Place
these over the base. Use a line of
piping at the top of the roof to
hold together. Place a glass on the
inside of the house (it will not
show) and on each side of the
house to rest the roof pieces onto
while they dry.
Assemble the small gable win-
dow in the same way that the roof
was just assembled. Pipe icing
around the base and place on
roof.
Attach candies to house using
white icing as glue. Use Gumballs
for large pumpkins, Runts to
make colorful windows, Spooky
Nerds for walkway and Gummy
Bugs to place in ,the yard and in
webs. Place some icing in a cup
and add a little water to make a
paint-like consistency; use paint-
brushes to paint spiderwebs,
shingles and siding on the house.
Sprinkle crushed Butterfinger
around house to create dirt. Paint
white icing on Crunch bars to cre-
ate tombstones. Pipe scary words
like "Boo" or "RIP" on tomb-
stones. Use icing to glue tomb-
stones to board. Have fun and
make it as spooky as you want.
For Royal Icing:
Combine 8 cups (2 lb. bag) sift-
ed powdered sugar, 3/4 cup warm
water and 6 tablespoons
meringue powder (available at
cook's stores) in large mixer bowl;
beat for 5 minutes or until stiff
peaks form.


Spooktacular Spoons
These spoons are perfect for

Virtually every telephone user knows that dialing the digits 8-0-0 to initiate a call insures
a toll-free phone call. Equally recognizable are the digits 9-1-1, which when dialed,.
give consumers a direct line to an emergency services operator. Other three-digit
codes are used in many communities in Florida to provide a range of services. Those
codes and their application are outlined below.


211 Community information
and referral services are
provided via this code in
some communities in Florida.
Potential users should inquire
locally or, alternatively, can
check http://flairs.org/florida211 network
plan.htm for a listing of active 211 provid-
ers. If a community service agency, which
may provide social or health services,
wishes to acquire this number, it must
make a request to the Agency for Health
Care Administration. There are 11 active
211 regional and local call centers serving
33 of Florida's 67 counties, supplying 211
services to 75 percent of the state's popu-
lation.

O311 This code is reserved
for non-emergency police
and other governmental
services. In communities
where this code is in use, it provides
residents with a simple way of gaining
access to local law enforcement in
circumstances that lack urgency or to local
government services deemed appropriate
by city or county officials. In extreme
circumstances, such as hurricanes, the
311 code may be used when .local 911
emergency numbers are overloaded.

, 4 411 Most consumers recognize
this code as providing local di-
*^ rectory assistance. At one time,
OW calls to 411 were free. However,
customers should check to determine what
their calling plan charges for this service.

511 The Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation
implements and adminis-
ters the 511 service in the


state, which, like the 211 code, -is not in
use statewide. In parts of Florida where
the code is in use mostly major markets
- callers can receive travel information.

m 611 This code is assigned
to local phone companies to
provide customers access to
telephone repair services.

711 This number is used to
gain access to the Florida Tele-
communications Relay Service.
This system, created by the Leg-
islature in 1991, provides access
to the telecommunications network for
individuals with speech, hearing or dual
sensory disabilities.


O N 811 The 811 code cur-
r _L rently provides access to
C L the business offices of the
local service company, but this may
change in the next few years. Through
the Pipeline Safety Improvement Act of
2002, Congress mandated the establish-
ment of a three-digit nationwide toll-free
number for states to use for a one-call
notification system. An advisory group to
the Federal Communications Commission
has recommended the use of 811.

O911 Probably the most rec-
ognized of the three-digit
codes, 911 is for emergency
services only.


Braulio L. Baez is the Chairman of the Florida Public
Service Commission. The PSC sets the rates regulated
utility companies charge for natural gas, electric and
telephone service within the state. In 36 counties, it
sets the price you pay for the water you drink, if your
water company is privately owned.
