22 of 24 New Live Oaks


i Aren't; Will Be Replaced


Twenty-two of the 24 live oaks planted in down-
town Bartow earlier this month are dead.
They weren't watered properly when they were
planted, Mayme Clark, chairman of the Community
Redevelopment Agency, told the CRA board this
morning.
An arborist from the University of South Florida
examined the trees and determined that all but two
had died.
Some of the dead trees have been cut down, and
all will be replaced.


The trees were warranted by the nursery which
provided them, and will be replaced without cost to
the city or the CRA, Ms. Clark said.
Of the 46 smaller shumard oaks that were plant-
ed, only a few appear dead, though most are losing
their leaves, the arborist reported.
The trees were planted as part of the extensive
redesign of Main Street.
"Magic on Main," a day-long celebration of the
project, will be held on Nov. 19.

Permanent Solution Sought To


As Polk County gas prices con-
tinue to reach record.highs, so too
do the number of people turning
to mass transit.
Between July and September,
ridership on the Winter Haven
Area Transit. (WHAT) system,
Lakeland's Citrus Connection,
and Polk County Transit
Services' rural routes rose 12 per-
cent, 17 percent and 24 percent,
respectively.
Transit officials believe many
of these new riders are non-tradi-
tional "choice" riders those
who have other means of trans-
portation but choose to ride the
bus instead forced to the bus
stop by burgeoning gas prices.
"When gas prices rise slowly,
people may not like it, but they f"
have time to adjust their budgets
accordingly," said Sandra
Winegar, director of Polk County
Transit Services. "When prices
leap like they have recently, it
hits people harder. People seem
much more reluctant to pay $3
for a gallon of gas today when it
was just $2.65 yesterday."
According to Winegar, the
WHAT system has seen a "signif-


icant increase" in ridership since
gas prices leapt to nearly $3 a
gallon in the aftermath of
Hurricane Katrina.
Between July and September,
the number of riders on the pop-
ular "Bartow Express" rose 26
percent from Lakeland to
Bartow, and 13 percent from
Bartow to Winter Haven.
Ridership on Route 20
(PCC/Hospital) rose 23 percent,
ridership on Route #30 from
Eagle Ridge Mall to Cypress
Gardens and Winter Haven rose
27 percent, and ridership on the
Haines City route rose 35 per-
cent.
In just one month, the number
of riders on rural routes 25
(Bartow-Fort Meade) and 35
(Frostproof) shot up 24 percent
and 40 percent, respectively.
"For percentages to jump like
this across the board, we can only
attribute it to gas prices,"
Winegar said.
According to the Energy
Information Administration, gas
prices have increased more than
65 percent since this time last
year. In the week ending Sept. 5,


gas prices soared 46 cents over
the previous week to $3.07 per
gallon the single largest one-
week leap in history.
While the average commuter
spends between $120 and $200
for gasoline each month, taking
the WHAT bus costs $30. One-
way fares are 75 cents for adults,
50 cents for students (grades 1-
12), and 35 cents for seniors (60
and older) and adults with dis-
ability. Children younger than 6
ride free.
Transit officials are urging
Polk County motorists to consid-
er using mass transit as a less
expensive, environmentally
responsible alternative to dri-
ving. Those who cannot use mass
transit are urged to conserve fuel
by eliminating unnecessary trips,
combining trips, and carpooling.

WHAT or PCTS routes and
schedules, call 534-5500 or go to

Slow Action by Polk Utilities


Flooding In Eastern Polk County Department Costs $1.6 Million


Acknowledging that emer-
gency pumping is not a perma-
nent solution to flooding problems
in eastern Polk County, county
commissioners have authorized
two engineering contracts to seek
a permanent fix for drainage from
Saddlebag Lake and Lake Belle.
Natural Resources Dir. Jeff
Spence told the commission that
parts of the county experienced as
much as 7.5 inches of rainfall
from Hurricane Wilma.
"It could have been much
worse," he said. "Overall we fared
very well."
The greatest impact was on
Saddlebag Lake, where more
than 300 homes in the Saddlebag
Lake Resort have been flooded, he
said.
The county has set up a pump


at Saddlebag Lake and is pump-
ing water through two miles of
pipeline into a creek, where it
travels a mile or so into Lake
Rosalie, Spence said.
Pumping began several weeks
ago, and had reduced the water
level by eight inches.
But after Wilma's visit the
water in Saddlebag Lake was two
inches higher than it was when
pumping began.


Lake Belle, from which the
county had pumped more than
three feet of water, rose by about
six inches during the storm, he
said.
But pumping is only a tempo-
rary solution, Spence said, and he
urged the commission to approve
two contracts with Professional
Engineering Consultants, Inc., to
seek permanent solutions for both
lakes. The contract for Saddlebag


Lake is for $70,438, and the con-
tract'for Lake Belle is $67,262.
Spence said there is no guaran-
tee that engineers can find a per-
manent solution for the two lakes,
but that he is optimistic.
Commissioners approved the
contracts, and urged the county
staff to seek funding from the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District and the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency for both projects.

Polk County will pay the
Florida Dept. of Transportation
more than $1.6 million for delays
caused by the county utilities
department on a road improve-
ment project years ago.
In 1993, the county received
notification that the FDOT would
widen Winter Lake Road (County
Road 540).
The county utilities depart-
ment opted to plan and carry out
moving of utilities to make way
for the construction, but failed to
do so on time, Utilities Dir. Greg
Boettcher told the county com-
mission. As a result, the contrac-


tor, Mid-State Paving Co., sub-
mitted a claim to the FDOT for
what it said was $2.3 million in
additional expenses it incurred
because of the delays, Boettcher
said.
The FDOT paid a lesser
amount $1.3 million and
sought reimbursement of that
amount, plus interest, from the
county commission, he said.
The county's legal and techhi-
cal advisors recommended paying
the FDOT $1,634,722, he said.
The FDOT threatened to sue
the county if the money were not
approved in October and paid in


November. If the issue went to
court, the county might be
assessed the original $2.3 million,
plus interest, Boettcher said.
'This is not a good news item,
but none of us was on board in
1993," Commissioner Paul Senft
said. He called the FDOT's claim
"reasonable and understandable."
He said the county has an
excellent relationship with the
FDOT, and is receiving many
times the amount of the settle-
ment in FDOT funds.
The vote to approve the settle-
ment was unanimous.


City Goes on Record


Against Garbage Landfill


Bartow city commissioners
went on record declaring their
"strong and unqualified opposi-
tion" to Cedar Trail Landfill's
plans to begin accepting garbage
at its landfill on E.F. Griffin
Road.
Burying garbage at the land-
fill would violate terms of a set-
tlement to a federal court lawsuit
negotiated more than 10 years
ago, and would violate the city's
land development code, the reso-
lution said.
Operators of the landfill have-
told city commissioners, in one-
on-one private meetings, that
they plan to seek a permit from
the Florida Dept. of
Environmental Regulation to
accept "commercial garbage." At
present, the landfill is licensed
only for disposal of construction
and demolition debris and yard
trash.
Cedar Trail owners have
taken the position that since the
September 1994 lawsuit settle-


ment forbids burying of "house-
hold and residential garbage," it
does not forbid "commercial
garbage."
The city's resolution says that
the settlement "by implication
prohibits the landfilling of all
garbage."
It says that landfilling of
garbage "would have a detrimen-
tal affect on the orderly develop-
ment of lands within the city,
which is proceeding in the gener-
al area" of the landfill.
The resolution notes that the
Chamber of Commerce, the
Highland Lakes Estates
Homeowners' Assn., "and many
other groups and citizens" have
expressed opposition to burying
garbage at the landfill.
The city's resolution, along
with the Chamber's resolution,
will be forwarded to the Florida
DEP and to operators of the land-
fill.
The Chamber's resolution
notes that E.F. Griffin Road is


."Bartow's fastest growing resi-
dential area with new and pro-
posed residential and business
development including a new ele-
mentary school that would be
adversely affected."
It says that allowing the land-
fill to accept garbage "represents
no economic advantage in
regards to the Bartow Chamber's
efforts to promote the esthetics of
the community for the purpose of
economic development," and that
having a garbage landfill within
sight of State Road 60 West
would create "a negative first
impression."
It predicts that accepting
garbage at the landfill would cre-
ate "a significant odor problem."
A petition signed by neighbors
and submitted to the city com-
mission predicts that adding
garbage to the landfill "could pol-
lute our wells, contaminate the
air with noxious smells, and
blight or destroy our property
values."

By LETA WRIGHT
Some good news this week is
that the workmen at the Mu-
seum have put the metal shin-
gles on the porch roof and the
store room roof. They have also
put about seven layers of the
metal shingles on the top north
roof. They are working on the in-
sulation and the walls inside the
Museum, so a little gets done
each day. The outside has been
painted and looks good. Drive by
and take a look.
I had quite an experience this
week. My passport is filled with
country stamps and it also ex-
pires in January, so I called the
passport office to find its location
which is the first door on the
right after you enter the north
door in the courthouse.
Since I never go to the court-
house, I found lots full of cars
and after circling a number of
times, I finally found a place to
park.
As I walked through security
inside the door, the attendant
asked about the scissors in my
purse. I told him I couldn't re-
member having scissors, so we
took everything out of my purse
and found tweezers in my small
cosmetic purse.
He said I could take them
back to my car, or throw them
away in the trash container. So,
I chose to throw them away as it
was too far back to my car and
would take too long before an ap-
, pointment that I had.
So, I go in the first door to the

duty was surprised to see me
leave so quickly and as I walked
back to my car, I wondered what
happens to all the little Imple-
ments in that trash barrel, such
as my good tweezers.
Incidentally, those tweezers
went through security this year
to a cruise ship in the Carib-
bean, a cruise ship to Alaska,
airports in Tampa, Denver, Seat-
tle, Anchorage, Houston, and
Hartford.
So, if you have business at the
county courthouse, take only


your purse locked in the car

To those of you who missed

The building was badly damaged
by last year's three hurricanes,
but now has a new ceiling, walls,

Proper vehicle lighting will be
vital to safety now that daylight-

To prepare for fewer hours of
daylight and the extra hours of
darkness, the Car Care Council
encourages motorists to take a
few minutes to inspect their ve-
hicles to ensure that all of the
lights are working properly.
The Car Care Council recom-
mends checking all vehicle light-
ing on a monthly basis, including
the headlights, turn signals,
brake lights, side lights, parking
lights, tail lights, backup lights
and license plate lights.
Whether you do it yourself or
visit a professional automotive
technician, it is important to re-
pair or replace non-functioning


lights immediately.
Something as simple as a
burnt-out brake light could po-
tentially have major conse-
quences. Results of vehicle in-
spections during National Car
Care Month found:
8 percent of vehicles in-
spected needed work on at least
one of their turn signals.
6 percent of vehicles had
problems with at least one of
their brake lights.
5 percent of vehicles failed
their side light inspection.
1 percent of vehicles failed
the inspection for their head-
lights, parking lights, tail lights,
backup lights and license plate
lights.

Gold Medal twice.
"'This designation is a reflec-
tion of the Governor and Cabi-
net's focus on preservation and
protection of Florida's environ-
ment," said Florida Department
of Environmental Protection Sec-
'etary Colleen M. Castille. "The


dedication of more than 1,000
park rangers and management
staff is the foundation of this
prestigious award, and we could
not have achieved this without
their support."
Florida's state park system is
one of the largest in the country
with 159 parks spanning more
than 723,000 acres and 100
miles of beach.
From swimming and diving in
Florida's rivers and springs to
birding and fishing or hiking and
riding on natural scenic trails,
Florida's state parks offer year-
around outdoor activities for all
ages.
Battle reenactments and Na-
tive American festivals celebrate
Florida's unique history, while
art shows, museums and light-
houses offer a window into Flori-
da's cultural heritage.

Area retailers, along with
agencies that serve older adults,
have joined forces with a local
senior care service to deliver
gifts and c.,'..n,;..i!, hip to iso-
lated seniors during the, busy
hi:.liday season.
Last year, more than 53,000
needy seniors throughout North
America received gifts as part of
the "Be a Santa to a Senior" pro-
gram.
The area office of Home In-
stead Senior Care, the world's
largest provider of non-medical
home care and companionship
for older adults, this year has
teamed with local eldercare
agencies and retailers to provide
presents to seniors who other-
wise might not receive a gift this
holiday season.
Last year 7,000 volunteers
distributed 96,000 gifts to the
deserving seniors.
"We have been thrilled with
the reception and the response to
our program, both on a local ba-
sis as well as nationally," said
Judy Laws, owner of the Home.
Instead Senior Care office serv-
ing Polk and Highlands Coun-
ties. "Be a Santa to a Senior, is
more than just a gift-giving pro-
ject. The program is designed to
help stimulate human contact
and social interaction for seniors
who are unlikely to have guests
during the holidays."
Here's how the program,
which runs from Nov. 1 through
Dec. 9, works:.- prior to the
holiday season, the participating
local non-pri-fit organizations
will identify needy, orphaned'
and 9isilA'.-dl seniors in the com-
munity and provide those names
to Ho:ie Instead Senior Care for
this community service program.
Christmas trees, which will


feature ornaments with the first
names only of the needy seniors
and their respective gift re-
quests, will go up Nov. 1 ,at. mul-
tiple locations.
Holiday shoppers can pick up
an ornament from a tree as
they did last year from 720 re-
tailers nationally buy the
items on 'the list and return
them unwrapped to any tree,
along with the ornament at-
tached.
Home Instead Senior Care
will then enlist the volunteer
help of its staff, senior care busi-
ness associates, non-profit work-
ers and others in the community
to collect, wrap and distribute
the gifts to these seniors.
A citywide gift-wrapping day,
when hundreds of the presents.
will be wrapped, will be held on
'Dec. 9 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at
the Rath Senior CoNextion Cen-
ter, located at 1350.East Main
Street, Suite C200, in Bartow.
Ralph, 76, is one area senior
who will benefit from Be a Santa
to a Senior.
Ralph, a widower in poor
health, has no family and other-
wise would not receive a gift this
holiday season.
."This program is a way that
we. can give back to our commu-
nity by providing gifts and com-
panionship to our area's older
adults who have contributed so
much," Laws said. "Our goal is to
bring a little love and joy of the
season into their lives."
To volunteer to help on the
citywide gift-wrapping day, con-
tact Home Instead Senior Care

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

Cedar Key: Florida As It Used To Be


triall


OPNO


"Copyrighted Material' -


4,Syndicated Content
Available from Commercial News Providers"


Floridians of my generation -
there have been two more gener-
ations (three in some families)
since we came on the scene can
remember when a visit to the
beach meant staying at a mom-
and-pop motel where an "ocean
front room" meant you could see
salt water without binoculars.
No valet parking.
No bellmen.
S-- No concierge.
No frequent guest points.
No signs that say things like
"No shirt, no shoes, no service,"
or even "No pets allowed."
There is such a place left in
Florida, and it may be the only
one.
Cedar Key.
It's 155 miles from central Polk
County on the Gulf of Mexico.
Mary and I spent a four-day vaca-
tion there, even finessed an extra
hour by timing our trip with the
return to Eastern Standard Time.
On the recommendation of a
friend, we made reservations at
the Faraway Inn, a place that is a


prototype for Cedar Key's
ambiance. It has 12 units: some
cottages, some efficiencies.
While real estate prices here
are outrageous (we saw a real
estate ad for a one-bedroom, one-
bath house on a 50-by-100 lot,
with the caveat "Bring Tools"
priced at $225,000), lodging
prices are from yesteryear.
Our room, just across a lightly-
traveled road from the Gulf of
Mexico, was $70 a night. It had a
refrigerator, a microwave, a large
screen TV set, and no telephone.
This is our kind of place. (Smaller
rooms start at $50.)
A sign at the front office
instructs you to hit the page but-
ton on the telephone to call the
owner. For emergencies after
hours, their home phone number
is posted.
Pets are welcomed at the
Faraway, and many local restau-
rants with outdoor seating invite
"well-behaved pets."
The Faraway has barbecue
grills, charcoal provided. And a


fish-cleaning station. Also canoes,
kayaks and bicycles. VCR tapes,
table games, and books in the
office. No charge for any of them.
You don't sign stuff out; you
just take what you want and
return it when you're through.
There's even an herb garden
from which guests may harvest a
half-dozen different herbs.
I told Oliver Bauer, owner of
the Faraway (with his wife,
Doreen) that we might be late
arriving.
He told me we would be in
Room 11, and he would leave the
door unlocked, the lights on, and
the key inside.
We arrived a little after 5, and
Doreen was still on the property. I
commented on the fact that they
could leave a room unlocked.
She said, half kidding, that
about the only thing that gets
stolen in Cedar Key is fishing
tackle.
She also boasted that there are
no chain operations here; okay,
there is one chain auto parts


place, but that's all.
Oliver told us that there are
ordinances that try to keep it that
way, but the main reason that
chains stay out is that it's well
known that the locals some 800
strong would not patronize
businesses owned by chains.
There are two museums, one
at the Cedar Key State Park, the
other an historical museum
downtown. There's a Cedar Key
Wildlife Refuge.
There are a lot of rustic homes
and businesses. The newer ones
within sight of the Gulf are built
on stilts; storm surges from hurri
canes flood anything at ground
level.
And there are excellent
seafood restaurants wherever
you turn.
People smile and wave at you
when they walk or drive past.
Cedar Key is Florida as it used
to be ... Florida as it was intend-
ed to be.


Time To Check


Smoke Alarm Batteries


Most deaths that occur in house fires are
caused by smoke, not flames.
Sometimes the victims die in their sleep;
sometimes they try unsuccessfully to walk
or crawl to safety.
Deaths from smoke inhalation are dou-
bly tragic because they are so easily pre-
ventable.
A 30-year-firefighter told us that in his
career, he: responded toJ'2 t 15 firesdeaths.
"I can't remember a single one where a
smoke detector wouldn't have saved
lives," he said.'
"They work."
Several years ago, Bartow's volunteer
firefighters installed a "special needs"
smoke detector which emits a bright light
in a home occupied by several deaf people.
In July of this year, the detector went off
at 1:40 in the morning, and four or five
sleeping residents were awakened and
safely escaped the house, which was exten-
sively damaged.
Smoke detectors cost only a few bucks,.
little enough that they should be placed in
every bedroom. Many. fire departments
make them. available for free for people
who can't afford them; some even install
them for older citizens who have no busi-
ness climbing ladders.
Dollar for dollar, they probably save
more lives than anything else you can buy
for your home.
But there are two conditions:
(1) Smoke alarms only work if they have
good batteries, properly installed.
(2) Although you can't tell just by look-
ing at them, they don't last forever ....
Fire departments through the land urge
people to check or change the batteries
-twice a year, when the clocks move for-
ward or back for Daylight Savings Time or
Standard Time. That occurred on Sunday.
If you haven't checked or changed your
batteries, now's the time to do so.


As for proper installation, we can offer
an example from personal experience.
When grilled fish accidentally becomes
blackened fish and emits a little extra
smoke, and the smoke alarm lets out its
ear-splitting squeal, the natural (and logi-
cal) response is to pull the battery loose
from its moorings.
The equally logical, but easily over-
looked, next step is to re-seat the battery
after the smoke clears.
In our semi-annual smoke alarm check a
few years ago, we discovered that we had
forgotten that vital step.
Also important, though less frequently
mentioned, is the need to replace smoke
detectors periodically.
There's probably something on the
packaging that tells how long you can
expect them to be effective.
If in doubt (you mean you don't save
empty boxes for more than a decade?) fire-
fighters suggest replacing them at least
every 10 years.
If your Scotch ancestry just won't let you
throw away what appears to be a working
smoke detector, do what we did: install
new ones in the bedrooms, and move the
old ones to less critical locations.
Smoke alarms save lives, but only if they
work.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Halloween? Phooey!


When I was in the fifth grade
in Zephyrhills, I went to the
Halloween carnival that the
Rotary. Club was having down-
town.
I had my fortune told by a
woman who claimed to be a
gypsy fortune teller. She had her
head wrapped up in a bandana
tied in a knot in the back and she
had a tooth blacked out in the
front. (I thought it was a piece of
black tape to make it look like she
had a bad dentist.)
She told me that I would have
three husbands and live to be
very, very old. So old that I would


wish someone would come along
and knock me in the head.
I have only had one husband
and he passed away 10 years ago.
I am beginning to think that the
fortune teller was an impostor or
maybe a liar. Yes, a liar right
downtown in Zephyrhills,
Florida.
That is a bad person to turn
loose at a Halloween carnival. I
am wondering if she had a for-
tune telling license. Or even went
to fortune telling school.
Can just anyone become a for-
tune teller? Where would one go
to learn to tell the future? ,


If I knew where she is, I would
certainly let her know that she
was no good at it. As I recall, she
charged a dime which was
almost half of my allowance.
She read my palm and told me
I would come into a.lot of money.
This was interesting, but I really
don't think she knew what she
was talking about. I was taking
tap dancing lessons at the G.A.R.
hall at the time and thought
maybe I could get a job in the
movies dancing.
A couple of months later, I saw
her again, or at least I think it was
her. She wasn't wearing the ban-


dana and had either removed the
tape from her front tooth, or had
it fixed. She was working in the
produce department, weighing
vegetables in a scale with a big
silver scoop on it. She acted like
she had never seen me before.
When I told her I hadn't come
into a lot of money yet, she
looked at me like I was crazy.
Maybe I was, but I didn't go
around telling people thing,
about themselves if I didn't know
they were true.
People like that ought to be
arrested.

Bipartisans Host Discussion

of Commission Recall


Polk County has started down
an unprecedented road the
possible recall of four county
commissioners.
A petition drive appears to be
imminent and it is important to
understand the implications of
this process.
To help members and other
Lakeland area citizens under-
stand the issues this action, the
Lakeland chapter of the Florida
Bipartisan Civic Affairs Group is
sponsoring a public discussion.
Dr. John Long, a Davenport
minister, member of the Republi-
can executive committee and
representative of Ax the Tax -
Polk County, will speak at a
chapter meeting on Monday,
Oct. 24, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Commissioner Bob English
was invited to participate in this
public service forum to provide
the commission's perspective,
but was unavailable to partici-
pate. The invitation will be ex-
tended to other commissioners.
The public event will be held
at the Lakeland Public Library
at 100 Lake Morton Drive.
According to Stephanie. Ar-
mes, Lakeland chapter chair-
woman, Dr. Long will discuss
the reasons for the recall drive,
the statutory basis for the pro-


posed recall, and the reasons
that Ax the Tax believes this ac-
tion is necessary. He also will
take questions from the audi-
ence.
Ms. Armes is careful to note
that the Florida Bipartisans are
itot taking a position on the pro-
posed recall because that could
be inconsistent with the Biparti-
sans' long-established focus on
issues rather than supporting or
opposing individual politicians.
Rather, Ms. Armes said, "It is
our group's tradition to provide
the public with vital information
on issues that concern and affect
our county and its citizens. It is
our hope that the public will
take the information we provide
to make informed and educated
decisions."
Plans for the next general
membership meeting are in pro-
gress and will be announced
soon. The public is always wel-
come at all Florida Bipartisan
general membership meetings
and events.

Cheeseburger Law Passes


Legislation passed by the U.S.
House of Representatives makes
it safe to sell cheeseburgers
again even with fries.
H.R. 554, the Personal Re-
sponsibility in Food Consump-
tion Act of 2005, passed the
House by a margin of 306-120
and moves to the Senate for con-
sideration.
Similar legislation, known as
the "Cheeseburger Bill," passed
in the 108th Congress.
"The frenzy by the trial bar to
bring suits against legitimate
businesses selling legal products
does nothing more than drive up
prices that are borne by consum-
ers," said U.S. Rep. Adam Put-
nam, who supported the bill.
"People should be responsible
for their own actions, and the
legislation we passed today will
protect consumers and small
businesses from frivolous law-
suits."
There have been numerous
accounts in the media in which
people have sued restaurants
and fast-food establishments be-
cause they claim the food that
was consumed was unhealthy.
"A person who supersizes a
double quarter pounder with
cheese has a reasonable idea
that his meal is not Weight
Watchers approved, and he
should not profit from his own
ignorance," Putnam added.
H.R. 554 requires courts to
dismiss lawsuits seeking dam-
ages for injury resulting from
weight gain, obesity, or any
health condition associated with
obesity filed against manufactur-
ers, distributors, sellers, market-
ers, and advertisers of any food
product as well as the trade as-
sociations that represent them.
However, the ban on lawsuits
does not include:
an action based on allega-
tions of breach of contract or


warranty, provided that the
grounds for recovery are not re-,
lated to a person's weight gain,
obesity, or a health condition as-
sociated with a person's weight
gain or obesity,
an action based on allega-
tions that a manufacturer or
seller of a qualified product
knowingly violated a federal or
state statute applicable to the
marketing, advertisement, or la-
beling of a qualified product
(when reliance on that market-
ing, advertisement, or labeling
caused the injury); or
an action brought by the
Federal Trade Commission
(FTC) under the Federal Trade
Commission Act (15 U.S.C. 41
//et seqJ/) or by the Federal Food
and Drug Administration (FDA)
under the Federal Food, Drug,
and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 301
//et seqJ/);
Lawsuits may still be brought
under state laws that protect
against deceptive trade prac-
tices, as well as when a person'
becomes sick from tainted prod-
ucts.
"Unless we repair our legal
system, businesses face enor-
mous potential liabilities that
decrease revenues and increase
prices," Putnam concluded.
"Americans demand choices, and
they should be able to 'have it
their way' if they so choose. This
legislation will help to ensure
that when a person asks to 'Hold
the pickle, hold the lettuce,' he is
responsible for his own actions."

tional Hospice and Palliative
Care Organization's (NHPCO)
Heart of Hospice Award.

tional organization's 20th Man-
agement and Leadership Confer-
ence held recently in Hollywood,
Fla.
The award was created to ac-
knowledge outstanding work in
the field of end-of-life care.
It also serves to recognize in-
dividuals who have made re-
peated, outstanding accomplish-
ments within hospice care. and
contributions with impact be-
yond the hospice realm, NHPCO
officials said.
Backed by nearly two decades
of hospice experience in Florida,
Ms. Lehotsky has led her organi-
zation in implementing many
new and innovative programs, a
Cornerstone Hospice spokesman'
said.
These include its Pathways
Palliative Care program for pa-

care and the Tuck-In Program
which enables patients to re-


main in their ALF and nursing
home residences.

Hospice, Ms. Lehotsky served as

plate, which has raised thou-
sands of dollars to expand the
mission of FHPC.

things we can do as individuals
in this field is to recognize those
who provide excellent care and
pass this knowledge along to oth-
ers," remarked Don Schumacher,
NHPCO president and CEO.
"By taking the time to focus on.
programs and individuals who
are leading the way in end-of-life
care delivery, we advance the
work being done by all hospice
and palliative care professionals
and ultimately increase the stan-
dard' of care and access for all
those in need."


Mid-Florida Center

Receives Service Grant


Mid-Florida Center for Men-
tal Health and Substance Abuse
Services, Inc. has received a
grant award to offer Substance
Abuse, HIV and Hepatitis pre-
vention services in Highlands,
Polk and Hardee Counties in the
amount of approximately $1.25
million.
The award is from the Sub-
stance Abuse and Mental Health
Services Administration Center
for Substance Abuse Prevention,
a branch of the federal Depart-
ment of Health and Human
Services, and calls for prevention
, services for minority populations
and minority re-entry popula-
tions in communities of color.
The agency will receive
roughly $250,000 annually for
the next five years.
Mid-Florida is partnering
with local behavioral health and
faith-based organizations as well
as county departmentsof health
to establish prevention initia-
tives and outreach services, pri-
marily in communities of color.
The grant award was based
on the agency's ability to demon-
strate that persons of color in
our local communities are at
higher risk for substance abuse
and HIV and hepatitis, when
compared to national rates for
these problems.
Mid-Florida researched the
data that revealed significantly
higher rates in local communi-
ties of substance abuse as well
as HIV and hepatitis infection,
in comparison to similar commu-
nities across the nation.
The agency and its partners


have proposed a variety of out-
reach activities, and prevention
strategies to address the growing
concern over these public health,
concerns.
Mid-Florida will target special
populations to include men and
women of color, specifically Afri-
can-Americanrs, ispaiiics and
Caribbean-Americans, as well as
youth and adolescents of color
and persons of color re-entering
the community from jails, pris-
ons and detention facilities.
The Mid-Florida Center has a
history of working with other lo-
cal organizations on the develop-
ment of prevention services in
the area and this is its second
grant award from the Center for
Substance Abuse Prevention.
In addition, the agency offers
a wide array of behavioral health
services including substance
abuse and mental health coun-
seling, treatment for youth and
adolescents with mental, emo-
tional and behavioral disorders,
and health education confer-
ences and training.
Persons interested in partici-
pating in these new prevention
initiatives should contact Arlene
Alvarado, the project director or
Dr. Arthur Cox, Sr., the princi-
pal investigator, at either 452-
6818 Highlands County or 533-

Committee's next meeting Nov. 8

Safety is a concern for parents
of children on Halloween, but-
there are dangers for four-legged
family members, too.
Fun Stuff For Dogs.com and

Here -are some excerpts:
Read Before Purchasing a
Costume for Your Dog
Here are 10 things to know
before purchasing or making a
Halloween costume for your dog.
Put the costume on your dog
for a few minutes a day and
build up the amount of time your
dog tolerates it.
Assure that costumes do not
limit your dog's field of vision.
Choose costumes that are
appropriate for your dog's size,
build and temperament. For ex-
ample, a pug may need a cos-
tume that's small, but with a
roomy chest and shoulder area.
A bulldog needs a costume large
enough for the neck, but not so
large that the dog trips on it.
Some breeds can be "thin-
skinned" and ticklish, and may


never get used to costumes.
If your dog has never worn
clothing or a costume, start with
a hat or bandana.
Never leave a dog unat-
tended in a costume
Avoid costumes with small
pieces such as beads that can be
swallowed.
Make sure that the costume
fabric will not overheat your dog.
Assure that elastic bands do
not become uncomfortable. Even
a mildly snug elastic band may
be uncomfortable after an ex-
tended wear (over 30 minutes).
Monitor your dog frequently
for signs of physical discomfort,
such as moving or walking in a
stiff or unusual posture, reluc-
tance to walk, or pawing/biting.
Watch for behavioral signs
that a dog is becoming stressed
by the costume, such as in-
creased agitation or defensive-
ness.

Kids & Dogs
More and more people are
having Halloween pet parties.
Here are three ways to keep both
dogs and kids safe during a pet
party.

Jackets Get, 23-7 'Feel


Good' Win Over Lake Wales


By JEFF THORNBURG

Playing for pride, the Bartow
Yellow Jackets defeated their
arch rival, the Lake Wales High-
landers, 23-7, in a Class 3A-Dis-
trict 10 game, before 1,100 fans
at Bartow Memorial Stadium.
Bartow finished third in the dis-
trict with a 2-2 record, improv-
ing to 5-4 overall.
"This feels good," said Bartow
Head Coach Shawn Killetts.
"Two in a row over Lake Wales,
and first win at home".
Bartow controlled .the clock,
scoring points in all four quar-
ters, and the hard-hitting Jacket
defense forced six punts, recov-
ered two fumbles, intercepted
two passes, blocked a punt and
held Lake Wales to 168 yards of
total offense.
Junior Jacket nose guard
Chris Broadhead recovered his
fourth fumble of the year, setting
up Bartow at the Highlander 20-
yard line. Five plays later junior
Jamal Burgess found the end
zone on a one-yard run.
Bartow sophomore running
back Willie Henderson extended
the Jacket lead to 14 with an 11-
yard dash over left tackle for the
score, capping a 65-yard, six-
play drive.
", Lake Wales answered right
back with a huge 74-yard pass
play from T.J. Hawthorne to
Jerry Pride, cutting Bartow's
lead to seven at halftime.
The, second half was all Jacket


defense. Of the eight Highlander
offensive possessions, three
ended with punts, two were
halted with turnovers, two
stalled on downs, and one punt
attempt was blocked by Russ
Workman, and then recovered by
Tyrone Berry.
Lake Wales managed only one
first down in the second half,
thanks to a five-yard offside pen-
alty against Bartow.
While Bartow's defense kept

disease, ALS (Amyotrophic lat-
eral sclerosis) is a neurodegen-
erative disease that usually at-
tacks both upper and lower mo-
tor neurons and causes degen-
eration throughout the brain and
spinal cord.
Lou Gehrig first brought na-
tional and international atten-
tion to the disease in 1939, when
he abruptly retired from baseball
after being diagnosed with ALS.
Most commonly, the disease
strikes people between the ages
of 40 and 70, and as many as
30,000 Americans have the dis-
ease at any given time.
The walk is part of a national
effort in support of local patient
services and nationally directed
research. Last year, 1,000 walk-
ers throughout Florida raised
$300,000. This year's goal is
$400,000.

Lakeland's aggressive eco-
nomic development activities are
having widespread results, from
new downtown housing to major
shopping centers to industrial
plants to corporate offices.
Steve Scruggs, Lakeland's
economic development director,
presented a slide show to the
Bartow Rotary Club featuring
highlights of economic develop-
ment successes.
The old Regency Hotel has
been converted into 51 one-bed-
room apartments and 25 two-
bedroom apartments to provide
downtown housing.
Construction will begin next
year on Lofts on the Park, a 14-
unit condominium development
overlooking Munn Park.
There are 12 major projects in
the works around Lake Mirror
Park, Scruggs said.
Last year, Lakeland ranked
13th nationally in industrial con-
struction, and was the only non-
metropolitan city on the list of
leaders.
Property values are rising
rapidly in Lakeland as around
the country, the speaker said.
The 200-acre site overlooking
the Polk Parkway on which Pub-
lix built its 320,000-square foot
corporate headquarters was pur-
chased in 1991 for $1.1 million,
and was sold to Publix for $5.5
million, he said.
A key to recruiting new busi-
ness and industry is the avail-
ability of buildings, Scruggs said,
noting that most previously va-
cant buildings in Lakeland now
have new owners.
Polk's housing costs are an-


other selling point, he said, with
both sale prices and taxes sub-
stantially lower in Lakeland
than in Orlando, Tampa and
Brandon.
Among major new retail de-
velopments are Dixieland Vil-
lage, Shoppes of Lakeland, and
Lakeside Village, he said.
The University of South Flor-
ida will build a branch campus
.on a 500-acre site on Interstate
4, eventually serving 15,000 stu-
dents. The first building is
scheduled for completion in
2008.
There are 26 residential de-
velopments under way within
the city limits that will provide
6,790 homes and apartment
units, Scruggs said.
Plans will be announced soon,
he said, for an upscale shopping
center on Clubhouse Road near
U.S. Highway 98.
"South Lakeland has had a re-
birth," he said.
In a question-and-answer ses-
sion, Scruggs called Lakeland
Electric "a disaster of Biblical
proportions." The utility is losing
millions of dollars on a sale con-
tract "that shouldn't have been
signed."
In order to attract more
higher-paying jobs, "our school
system has got to get better," he
said.
"Polk County should have
been collecting impact fees a
long time ago."
He said that recent increases
in property taxes by the Polk
County commission will provide
infrastructure that will support
further development.

tion is now accepting applica-
tions for the 2006 Beef Industry

The National Sheriffs' Insti-

During the session, Sheriff
Judd joined 25 other sheriffs

ways to respond effectively as
leaders to emerging and continu-
ing issues in criminal justice and
public safety, such as homeland
security, school violence, court
security, leadership, drugs, dis-
aster relief, jail operations, and
community relations in the cur-
rent context of increased aware-
ness of public safety.
"Sheriff Judd is a leader with
vision for the Polk County Sher-
iffs Office," said Fred Wilson,
NSA director of training. "It is
an honor to have Sheriff Judd
join the more than 3,000 gradu-
ates of NSI since 1973."
Sheriff Judd was awarded his
degree of completion from NSA
Director Fred Wilson and Larry
Solomon, deputy director of the
National Institute of Correc-
tions.

ent will be named national Vi-
sion Award winner.
Each regional winner will re-
ceive a $500 award and is asked
to designate an NCBA affiliate
to also receive a $500 grant.
The national winner will re-
ceive roundtrip airfare, hotel ac-
commodations and two compli-
mentary registrations for the
2006 Cattle Industry Convention
and Trade Show in Denver, Colo-
rado. Regional winners also re-
ceive two complimentary regis-
trations for this event.
Applications and all support-
ing material must be received by
