City Officials Study Development


Standards For New Subdivisions


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

Bartow city commissioners and
zoning board members seem in
agreement that there needs to be
a meeting of the minds on what
the city wants to achieve in resi-
dential development, particularly
in housing density in new subdi-
visions.
How to achieve it is the prob-
lem.
After a two-hour joint meeting
Monday night, commissioners
instructed City Mgr. Joseph J.
DeLegge and his staff primari-
ly Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
- to figure out how to accomplish
it.
They suggested that City Atty.
George Dunlap be brought into
the discussion to suggest just how
far the city commission can go in
giving guidance to the zoning
board.
A majority of members of both
the city commission and the zon-
ing board have expressed a wish
to see lower density development
on E.F. Griffin Road and other
rural areas annexed into the city
in the past year or two. But both
agencies skirted specific sugges-
tions at the joint meeting.
An audience of 40 to 50 people
representing both sides of the
density issue attended, but were
not invited to participate in the
discussion.
Augie Fragala, a land use
planner who is chairman of the
Polk County planning commis-
sion and treasurer of the Polk
County Builders Assn.,-was cho--
sen by DeLegge to be facilitator of
the discussion. At his recommen-
dation, the two city agencies
agreed to hold further meetings to
chart a direction for the city's
land use planning.
"If anybody thinks you're going
to stop growth, you're nuts,"
Fragala said at the beginning of
the meeting. "You can plan it, you
can control it."


If the more than 100,000
lights that will be turned on dur-
ing Bartow's Magic on Main is a
feast for the eyes, then Bartow's
newly-formed All-City Choir will
certainly be a delight for the
ears.
The group, consisting of
singers from many of Bartow's
area churches, will perform as
one during the lighting ceremony
scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 19,
from 4:15 to 7:15 p.m.
The chorus will sing on the
main stage at the corner of Main
Street and Broadway Avenue,
adjacent to Fort Bount Park.
Long-time friends and well-
known Bartow residents Bonnie
Allen and Janet Heidtman have
organized the choir especially for
Magic on Main, a one-day event
celebrating the renovation of
Bartow's Historic Main Street.
Both agree that putting the
choir together has been fun.
"This may not be the last time
we do this," Mrs. Allen said.
Mrs. Allen is the choir director
at Bartow's First United
Methodist Church and teaches at
the First Methodist School.
Ms. Heidtman serves as the
choir director at the Bartow ARP
Church, located one block south
of First Methodist.
All Bartow area churches have
been invited to participate in the
choir.
"We had 60 people attend the
first rehearsal," Ms. Heidtman
said.
"What a great sound they
have," Mrs. Allen said.
The next rehearsal, for those
interested in participating, will
be held at First United Methodist
Church located at 305 South
Broadway Avenue in Bartow on
Sunday, Nov. 13, at 3 p.m.
Those who would like to partic-
ipate at Magic on Main, but can
not make the rehearsal, are still
invited to "just show up" at the


Zoning Board Member Susan
Brewer, who has supported high-
density development, said: "We're
in a very rare position; we have
an opportunity."
Zoning Board Chm. Michael J.
Marchman said he doesn't like
walled subdivisions, such as the
ones that are going up on County
Road 540-A, just north of Bartow.
He said he would like to see
landscaped buffers of 100 to 150
feet instead of masonry walls.
Zoning Board Member Bo
Raulerson said: "I get the impres-
sion that there are elements in
the community that think one
type of development is right for
the entire city."
He said city officials need to
decide what should drive land use
decisions: the desires of the com-
munity or the financial benefit to
city government. Supporters of
high density development have
argued that it is cheaper to pro-
vide utilities when houses are
closer together and on smaller
lots.
"Bartow is a unique place,"
Zoning Board Member Drew
Guffey said. "We need to identify
what makes it that way.
:"When building neighborhoods
from scratch, what should it look
like?"
Commissioner Brian Hinton
said city government should work
to build consensus.
"There have been some hurt
feelings. I'd like to see that go
away," he said.
"'I don't like walls either,"
Hinton added, supporting
Mkrchman's comment.
,He suggested "a reasonable
tr nsition in home sizes"
between the one-house-per-acre
hopes on E.F. Griffin Road and
,the maximum-density subdivi-
sions on adjoining property.
He said that the city needs to
listen to people who live outside
the city limits, as well as to
Bartow residents.
"We do have a vision,"


Commissioner Andy Laurent
said.
"We have a land use plan.
"When we've gotten down to
specifics, they haven't helped us.
"We see the growth; we see a
lot of places we don't like like
Four Corners and Brandon."
"What I hear is we want man-
aged, smart growth," Mayor Leo
Longworth said.
"City staff is not supposed to
approve or disapprove develop-
ment plans." That decision, he
said, is up to the zoning board
and the city commission.
"Those who live outside the
city have just as much right to
speak," Longworth said.
"I feel the competition; I feel
the negative vibes."
Wiegers, the city's planning
director, said that a city develop-
ment review committee, made up
of department heads, reviews
each proposed development, and
invites developers to explain their
plans.
"Does the staff ever say 'What
is this guy thinking?' Fragala
asked.
Developers "get a fair hearing"
Wiegers said. Some ideas don't
get past the staff review, he
added.
The city coordinates with the
county commission staff on trans-
portation planning, he said.
Wiegers said he makes a for-
mal analysis of each proposed
development, to determine if it is
consistent with the city's compre-
hensive plan.
Asked by Fragala if he makes a
recommendation oireach develop-
ment, he replied:
"Not any more"
But he said that even when the
zoning board recommends disap-
proval of a subdivision, he pre-
pares an ordinance approving the
development for the commission's
action.
Wiegers said he reviews pro-
posed developments for consisten-
cy with the policies in the city's


comprehensive plan.
"Consistency with the compre-
hensive plan is sort of like art; I
know what I like when I see it,"
Fragala told the commission.
Wiegers predicted an increase
in the number of projects that are
processed as "planned develop-
ments."
Fragala said the county uses
that process to negotiate for such
things as sidewalks and street-
lights as a concession for higher
density.
"We already require that,"
Wiegers said of sidewalks and
streetlights.
Wiegers said that the city's
customary density for R-1 devel-
opments is about 3.3 houses per
acre.
"Is three units per acre next to

No Make-up

Day For

Students
Polk County schools will
not have a hurricane make-up
day on Nov. 21.
Students will not be
required to make up the
missed day during Hurricane
Wilma.
According to the Florida
Department of Education, dis-
tricts which missed five days
or fewer will be required to
make up the lost instructional
time to the extent needed to
ensure that all students will
be provided a minimum of 900
hours of instruction.
Districts can use a combi-
nation of make-up days, addi-
tional minutes, or existing
instructional hours beyond
900 hours to meet this
requirement.
Since Polk County has
more than 900 hours of
instructional time in the
schools, the district will not
need to make up for the
instructional time due to can-
celing school on Monday, Oct.
24.
Further information is
available from Dr. Bruce
Tonjes, associate superinten-
dent for school-based opera-
tions, at 534-0521.


SHINY HORNS and the rest of Bartow High
School's Marching Band created a joyful noise for
the beginning of the Crickette Club's annual
Halloween Parade and Carnival Monday afternoon.
The parade was switched from the normal Main
Street route to Summerlin Street because of the


streetscaping project downtown. Parade, watchers
were treated to lots of candy and even beads this
year as decorated floats and vehicles made their
way to the carnival at IMC-Agrico Park. (Staff

Hippies, country singers, devils, pirates, and
other assorted characters turned out in force at
the Halloween Costume Party and Low Country
Boil at the Bartow Golf Course Saturday night.

City's Planning Process


Needs To Be Fixed


Shortly after a joint meeting of the
Bartow city commission and the zoning
board adjourned Monday night, a long-
time observer of city government who
attended the meeting urged us:
"Hurry up and write your story so I
can figure out what they did."
The comment was well-taken.
Commissioners instructed City Mgr.
Joseph J. DeLegge to come up with a way
to implement their objectives, without
making it clear what those objectives are.
It appears that commissioners are
opposed to walled subdivisions.
It appears that commissioners would
like lower density development ...
though they didn't make it clear how
much lower, and wouldn't come right
out and say they were talking about E.F.
Griffin Road.
They indicated that they don't want
Bartow's land use and zoning decisions
to be driven by how much money the
city can make on providing utilities ser-
vice to high-density subdivisions,
though they want to know about the
financial impact of their decisions.
Mayor Leo Longworth emphasized
that it is the city commission, acting on
the recommendation of the zoning
board, that will make land use and zon-
ing decisions, not the city staff. As obvi-
ously correct as his statement was, it
needed to be said.
Commissioners made it abundantly
clear that they want the concerns of all
citizens considered, regardless of
whether they live inside or outside of the
existing city limits. For that attitude, we
commend them.
Augie Fragala, facilitator for the joint
meeting, said that the county has land
use designations that allow one, two,
three, or four houses per acre, and sug-
gested that Bartow might establish simi-
lar designations. It is an excellent idea.
Few people understand that establish-
ing housing density is a two-step
process. The first is assignment of a land
use designation to a parcel; the second is
zoning. They sound like the same thing,
but they're riot.
Under Bartow's comprehensive plan,
"Low Density Residential" land use real-
ly means single-family residential.
Under the city's comp plan, up to six
homes per acre can be crammed into a
"Low Density Residential" develop-
ment. Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers has
said repeatedly that it's not really possi-
ble to put more than 3.3 units per acre,


but six is what the code allows.
To quote a phrase often used at zoning
board meetings, when it comes to the
code: "It is what it is."
We believe that Bartow should change
its terminology.
Six units per acre is not "Low Density
Residential."
That's a fiction.
In place of the terms "Low Density
Residential," "Medium Density
Residential," and "High Density
Residential," we suggest that the city use
terms like "Single Family Residential"
and "Multi-Family Residential."
Following Fragala's suggestion, Single
Family Residential land use designations
could track the county's designations of
one, two, three (or 3.3?) units per acre.
The time to establish that is when the
city's land use map is amended, before
zoning takes place.
That would put developers on notice
up front that Single Family -Residential
zoning would not automatically equate
to the high density development that
already has been approved for most sub-
divisions on E.F. Griffin Road.
The city attorney and the planning
director both have warned city commis-
sioners not to go too far in telling the
zoning board how they would like to see
Bartow developed.
Commissioner Brian Hinton correctly
observed that if the commission can't
give planning guidance to the zoning
board, it can only control decisions by
voting against plans that are presented.
That's an expensive process for develop-
ers. A better system is needed.
"We have heard for years that we
annex land to control it," Hinton said;
"then we approve whatever developers
want." He is correct.
The process isn't working; it needs to
be fixed.

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

Cat Toys: High Tech and Low Tech


If you have a cat and own a
laser pointer, and bring both into
the same room, you have instant
entertainment for you and the
cat, at least until the cat figures
out what's going on.
Which probably won't take
long.
After that, you're on your
own.
Note that I say "own" a laser
and "have" a cat.
We have had one or more cats
in our household since the early
1980s.
We also have one of those craft
fair signs that says: "Dogs have
masters, cats have staff."
And while I'm not sure that we
own a laser pointer, we have
given them as gifts to our daugh-
ters and our son-in-law, all of
whom are professional educators.
It is thus from personal experi-
ence that we are aware of the
energy that a cat will put into
chasing. that little beam of light


around the room.
This is not exactly rocket sci-
ence. Cats love to pounce on
things, which is one reason they
make good mousers. Cats also
understand that anything that
dangles is a cat toy. Shoe laces.
Package ribbons. Low-hanging
light cords. Even fingers.
Laser beam now that's a
high tech cat toy.
You or I, we could just aim the
laser pointer, let Cuddles, or
Fang, or whoever, chase it until
he or she found something more
interesting to do.
End of story.
On the other hand, you can
take the concept of a cat chasing a
beam of light from a laser and
turn it into a federal case.
In 1995, two guys in Virginia
filed a patent on a laser pointer
designed to give a cat some exer-
cise. The filing available, like
everything except a cure for hic-
cups, on the Internet includes


a junior high school-level pair of
sketches. Fig. 1 depicts you, the
person holding the laser pointer,
and Tabby, chasing the beam. Fig.
2 depicts the laser pointer, look-
ing more like a cheap pistol noz-
zle for a garden hose, ready to
put Tabby through his paces.
In highly technical-sounding
jargon, the text describes the use
of an "intense coherent beam of
invisible light" produced by the
laser pointer. It's what you or I
would call "a little red dot."
It also reports that: "Cats are
not characteristically disposed
toward voluntary aerobic exer-
cise."
I believe what that means is
that cats are lazy.
Or at least exertion-averse.
Oriented toward applied
relaxation with (or without) the
slightest provocation.
Our Inker Dinker, a classic
tuxedo cat, is a prototype. He's an
affectionate fellow; he'll curl up


next to you and go to sleep in a
heartbeat.
He understands that anything
that dangles is a cat toy, and that
a laser beam is a thing to be
chased.
As a general rule, he's a little
skittish around children.
Our three-year-old grandson,
Liam, is an exception.
Liam loves to chase Inker, who
responds by scampering away for
a few feet. Then Inker will turn
around to see if Liam is about to
catch up with him; if not, he waits
a little loriger.
Within,: a minute or so, Inker
will permit himself to be caught,
for whidi Liam will reward him
with a gentle hug.
Laser beams are high tech;
Liam is low tech.
Inker prefers low tech.
He thinks of Liam as staff.

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


Fifty Years Ago

Judge D.O. Rogers today set Dec. 12 as the
tentative trial date for 10 of the 13 men indict-
ed for raping an Eloise housewife on Oct. 9.
No date set for trying two of the defendants,
indicted separately, and the 13th man has not
been located.
Etheredge Chevrolet, Inc., advertising
Chevrolet for '56, beginning Friday, Nov. 4,
with prices delivered in Bartow as low as
$2,056.
Halloween carnival royalty: King Tommy
Hyman, Queen Bettylyn Trask, Prince Harris
Conner, and Princess Cecilia Whidden.
George V. Coker, Bartow assistant post-
master, has been named battalion comman-
der of the 149th Armored Field Artillery
Battalion of the Florida National Guard.

Forty-Five Years Ago

An Eloise man who was bitten on the
thumb during a fight, became ill, and 10 days
later died. Doctors at Winter Haven Hospital
diagnosed his illness as tetanus and blood
poisoning, and amputated the thumb, but he
failed to rally. The man who bit him in being
held on a charge of mayhem in an isolation
cell at the county jail.
Nearly all county tax bills are higher in the
wake of a complete reappraisal by Hunnicutt
& Associates, St. Petersburg. And as property
owners got the word from their mail box,
Tax Assessor John B. White and School Board
Member Austin T. Race issued public state-
ments, each blaming. the other for the
increase.

Forty Years Ago

One man was killed and another lost both
legs when they were crushed between two
cars in a 5 a.m. accident on Palmetto Street at
Virginia Avenue. George Bryant of 1810
Palmetto St. and Carl Miller of Miami were
attaching jumper cables from Bryant's car to
Miller's stalled vehicle when a speeding car
crashed into the rear of Bryant's auto. Bryant
died soon after reaching Bartow Memorial
Hospital. Both of Miller's legs were amputat-
ed. The driver of the speeding car was
charged with involuntary manslaughter,
reckless driving at a speed too great for con-
ditions, and driving on the wrong side of the


road.
The Democrat won five awards in the
Florida Press Assn. "Better Newspaper" con-
test for 1965: second place for best original
column, third place for best news story, third
place for best editorial, honorable mention for
best news photo, and a special award for a
series of articles written by Miss Lana
Murray, a former Democrat reporter who
toured Europe as a Fullbright scholar.

Thirty-Five Years Ago

A pay increase of $603 a year in the starting
salary of Bartow police officers was approved
by the city commission Monday night, with
similar raises for sergeants and captains. The
raises had been proposed by Chief C.T. Clark
and endorsed by the city manager and civil
service board.
Florida voters Tuesday elected State Sen.
Lawton Chiles of Lakeland to the U.S. Senate
seat to be vacated by Sen. Spessard Holland
when he retires in January.
Polk County voters, by decisive margins,
rejected a proposal to make the position of
county school superintendent appointive,
and approved county zoning.


Thirty Years Ago

Three masked gunknen robbed a service
station Friday night arid three men proba-
bly the same ones later shot a man in the
foot because he didn't have any money,
police reported.

Twenty-Five Years Ago

President Jimmy Carter paid a half-hour
campaign visit to Lakeland the first incum-
bent President to visit Polk County in five
years. The Democrat's entire general news
staff S. L. Frisbie, IV, Todd Thomas and
Cindy Hardin were there to report the
event, their by-lined article and photos filling
the entire front page. .
Halloween night events: three brothers,
aged 11 to 13, were p ppered with birdshot
fired from a passing! car; and three Fort
Meade men were assaulted by a fourth Fort
Meadean on the steps of the Bartow police
station as they sought, refuge from a fellow
townsman whose car ihey had trashed with
thrown eggs, and who had followed them to
Bartow.

Show Featuring Polk

Murder To Broadcast

Sunday Night at 10:30


An episode, of the, TV show
"Relentless" focusing' on' an un-
dercover investigation by Sher-
iff's Deputy Susan Gorek that re-
sulted in the solving of one of
Polk County's more bizarre mur-
der cases will air Sunday night
at 10:30 on the Oxygen Network.
A number of Polk Countians
were interviewed for -the show.
Ms. Gorek was the key wit-
ness in the trial and conviction
of George Trepal for the murder
of Peggy Carr. Mrs. Carr died of
poisoning with thallium, and two
of her sons suffered disabling ill-
nesses from ingesting the chemi-
cal.


At first, it was not even clear
that a crime had been commit-
ted, since the source of the poi-
son had not been determined.
Testimony at the trial showed
that Trepal, a neighbor, had
carefully pried open some soft
drink bottles in the Carr home,
put thallium in them, then re-
sealed the bottles. Witnesses
said that Trepal had complained
about the Carr children playing
loud music.
Trepal was convicted of first
degree murder and sentenced to
death. The sentence has not
been carried out.

"Who's the judge of what's
compatible, the person living
next door or the city council?"
Fragala asked. "What you do sets
the stage for the next develop-
ment that comes in," Fragala
said.
Laurent said the city staff
needs to tell the zoning board
and the city commission what
density is required to recover the
cost of water and sewer lines.
"We've got to agree on what
'low density residential' means,"
Laurent added.
Wiegers said that the city code
allows six units per acre on '"low
density residential" property,
even though the typical develop-
ment is 3.3 units per acre.
"Is it safe to assume that you
think six units per acre is too
dense?" Fragala asked.
"No," Mrs. Brewer replied.
"It's obviously too dense if it's
single family residential,"
Raulerson said.
People don't like to see hous-
ing so dense that basketball
backboards are set up next to
street for children to shoot hoops,
he said.
Fragala suggested that the
city may want to create new land
development standards to pro-
vide for densities lower than
allowed by the "low density resi-
dential" standard.
He said the county commis-


sion has four land development
standards that allow densities of
one, two, three or four houses per
acre.
But the planning commission
"has the opportunity to do some
horse-trading with developers" to
allow higher densities, he said.
"Do you think the county has
done a good job on County Road
540-A?" Raulerson asked.
After hesitating, Fragala
replied: "Yeah, by and large. I
live on 540-A."
Raulerson -asked if develop-
ment should be halted when
roads become inadequate.
Fragala replied that the
state's concurrency standards
consider that a road is considered
adequate if there are plans to
widen it within three years.
The county underestimated
right-of-way costs on County
Road 540-A, he added. It takes
almost three years to get a subdi-
vision approved by the county, he
said.
Laurent asked if it would be
possible for the commission to
discuss zoning of property desig-
nated "low density residential."
It is the zoning category that
establishes the maximum densi-
ty.
"I think you're stepping off
into a legal area ... without due
process," Wiegers replied.
"If we can't get in on the front
side, all we can do is vote some-
thing down," Hinton said.
He said he would like for the
commission to be able to tell
developers what type of develop-
ment the city will approve.
Wiegers suggested that the
commission say where it will
approve high-density develop-
ment.
"We have heard for years that
we annex land to control it; then

we approve whatever developers
want," Hinton said.
He said he would like a list of
what developments already have
been approved.
Marchman said that the pub-
lic needs to know that the city's
standard for "low density resi-
dential" development allows sub-
divisions with 70-foot lots.
"It's not all about money,"
Longworth said, "but money is
part of it."
"I want to make sure we can
live together in our community,"
Guffey said. "I don't know how
we get to that point."
Fragala suggested that the
commission direct the city man-
ager and his staff to chart a
direction.
Raulerson said that the city
declared a moratorium on new
signs while it drafted a sign ordi-
nance, but added that he was not
proposing a similar moratorium
on development.
"Aaagh!" Fragala exclaimed,
making a cross with his fingers
as if warding off a werewolf.
Noting that several developers
were in the audience, he said:
"Developers want to be cooper-
ative with you."
Wiegers said that at present,
the city generally responds to
what developers want.
He said he could propose
strategies to implement the com-
mission's goals by December.
Mrs. Brewer asked what
developers should expect on
developments on E.F. Griffin
Road.
Fragala said he didn't think
developers .would submit plans
for undeveloped parcels until
they see what the city wants.
Most of the developments on
that road already have been
approved, Mrs. Brewer said.

March Of Dimes To Mark

Preemie Awareness Day


Babies are in crisis today -
nearly half a million are born pre-
maturely every year and the
number is rising.
In 2002, there were 26,609
babies born prematurely in
Florida, representing 13 percent
of live births.
Premature birth is the number
one killer of newborns and a
major cause of serious health
problems. It costs society billions
of dollars every year.
That is why the March of
Dimes has designated November
as Prematurity Awareness
Month, and Nov. 15, as
Prematurity Awareness Day.
The March of Dimes is leading
a national effort to save babies
from premature birth by funding
research to find the causes and by
supporting local programs that
offer hope and help to families
with a baby in intensive care.

Property Tax Notices Have Been Sent Include Arts, Crafts Show Need Of Male Mentors


Property tax notices have
been sent to all of Polk County's
property owners.
"Property owners should be
receiving their bills in the mail
in the coming days," Tax Collec-
tor Joe Tedder said. "We want
taxpayers to make sure they get
a bill on or before Nov. 14."
The property tax bill mailing
went out this week to more than
,389,650 property owners.
A separate bill is sent out for
each parcel or account. However,
failure to receive a tax notice for
!4 particular parcel or account
Does not relieve the property
owner of their obligation to pay
,'their taxes.
Florida law makes taxpayers
,"responsible for knowing that
their property taxes are due and
payable each year.
"While the responsibility is on
the property owner to make sure
that they receive a bill," Joe Ted-
der said, "our office works hard

When a neighbor is in your
fruit garden, inattention is the
truest politeness.

each year to notify the public
when tax bills are sent out and
due. And because of the way the
law is written, the burden re-
mains with the property owner
to notify our office should they
fail to receive a bill."
Taxes for 2005 have a total
taxable amount of $523,754,064,
as compared to last year's tax
roll which had a total taxable
amount of $432,892,690.
The increases this year reflect
an increase both in appraised
values across the county as well
as millage rates levied by the
various taxing authorities.
This year's tax roll represents
a 21 percent increase in taxes
and assessments billed from the
prior year.
Tedder's office also provides
an insert with the tax notice to
help answer taxpayer questions.
The insert provides instruc-
tions and information, including
a listing of taxing and levying


authorities and their telephone
numbers, as well as a brief de-
scription of taxes and assess-
ments that may appear on an in-
dividual's tax bill.
Property owners who do not
receive their property tax notice
by Monday, Nov. 14, should con-
tact the Tax Collector's Office at
534-4721.
The office began accepting
2005 property tax payments in
its branch offices as of the begin-
ning of business hours on Tues-
day, Nov. 1.
Payments also maybe made
by mail or on-line at www.polk-
taxes.com.
To pay in person locally, visit
Bartow's Main Office, located at
430 East Main Street.
If paying in person, bring both
parts of your notice form.
Beginning April 1, all unpaid
property taxes become delin-
quent.


A holiday arts and crafts
event will take place Saturday,
Nov. 19, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.,
as part of "Magic on Main," an
all-day grand-reopening celebra-
tion to show off Main Street in
Bartow's completed $2.4 million
streetscape.
Applications are being ac-
cepted for the show, which will
feature handmade crafts of all
types. Space size is 12 feet by 12
feet, and there is a $50 entry fee.
For an arts and crafts fair ap-
plication or further information,
call Main Street Bartow, Inc., at
519-0508.


Many other mini-versions of
annual community events also
are planned at the celebration,
including a run for cancer, cy-
cling event, chili cook-off, live en-
tertainment, street dance, and
more, highlighted by the turning
on of the holiday lights down-
town.
"Magic on Main" is presented
by the Bartow Chamber of Com-
merce, Bartow's Community Re-
development Agency, the City of
Bartow, and Main Street Bar-

Bartow Ends Season Against

Lake Region At Homecoming


By JEFF THOR NBURG
Bartow closes out the 2005
prep football campaign with
their Homecoming game against
the Lake Region Thunder Fri-
day. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
at Bartow Memorial Stadium,
and the game can be heard on
AM 1130 WBF.
The Thunder are struggling
with a 1-8 record. Lake Region is
scoring an average of eight
points per game, while their de-
fense is giving up 33 points per
game. The Thunder suffered a
55-7 district loss against Arm-
wood last week.
Bartow edged the Thunder
last year 31-29 at Lake Region.

Since 1996, Bartow leads the se-
ries 5-4.
The Jackets, coming off a 23-7
win over district rival Lake
Wales, are posting just under 18
points per game, while their de-
fense is allowing 14 points per
game.
Lake Region's offense is cap-
tained, by 6-foot sophomore Matt
Hopkins at quarterback. Hop-
kins has passed for six touch-
downs and just over 616 yards
for the season.
Junior fullback Josh McCor-
mick leads the Thunder rushing
.attack averaging four 'yards per
carry, but has no touchdowns.
Bartow's Devarious Cook


eclipsed the 1,000 yard passing
mark last week in the win over
Lake Wales. Cook has 1,034
passing yards with seven touch-
downs, and ranks second among
county quarterbacks.
The Jacket ground game be-
longs to senior Ryan Colson. Col-
son has eight rushing touch-
downs and almost 850 yards, av-
eraging 6-1/2 yards per carry.
Another game for pride, this
is the final football contest of the
year for both squads, and Bar-
tow's Homecoming.
"We want to finish the year,
positive," said Bartow Head
Coach Shawn Killets. "We arc
excited about next yearr"

Middle School Players

Offer Jacket Tradition


By ELVIS SULFRIDGE
BHS Sports Correspondent
The middle school Bartow
Yellow Jackets aren't very old
but -are playing with the matur-
ity that the NFL would envy.
These young men have to bal-
ance school work: and carry the
tradition of Bartow),football.
Each year the young Jackets
earn respect from their oppo-
nents with high scoring and a
defense that is nothing short of
outstanding.
For five years in a row the
teams have won the champion-
ship, while showing their oppo-
nents what Jacket Pride is really
about.
This year the Jackets have a
6-2 record, posting shut-outs in
two of their last four games.
The shut-outs were led by
middle line backer Reggie Polite,
who is complemented by the rest
of the line backing core.
These shut-outs aren't solely
on the shoulders of the lineback-
ers, but the whole defense. In
the last game Bartow had nu-
merous stops in the backfield on
account of the defensive line's
penetration and the secondary

Musings From God's Penman


Daylight-Saving Time is Not Quite Like Money in the Bank


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
Once again, it's that time of
the year when we turn our clocks
back one hour.
It is "fall back" and "spring
forward," although I never seem
to get ahead.
Daylight-saving time was de-
signed to add an hour more of
daylight at the end of the usual
working day. Now it is time to
end the daylight-saving time. I
shall miss my old friend.
The thing I want to know is
just how much time I saved dur-
ing these past six months. More
importantly, how can I get to
some of that time when I need
it?
I seem always just a little bit
behind, and an eitra hour or two
would help me out of a pinch
sometimes. In fact, if anyone has
any daylight-saving time they
are not going to use, please con-
tact me. I may be interested in
buying some.
With my luck, if I do see the
light at the end of the tunnel, it
will be an oncoming train.
I have enough time to do eve-
rything I want to do. The prob-
lem could just be that my "to do"
is too much and I should con-
sider rearranging my priorities.
Or, at least cut out some things
which are not that important.
That is the dilemma of my
life. Simply put, it is the obses-
sion that I must finish every-
thing I start.
But why?
It all started with my parents,
who always nagged me about
"finishing" everything.
"Hurry up and finish your


supper," they'd say. Then, "Have
you finished your homework?"
On the weekends it was, "Go
and finish mowing the yard."
I could never understand this
obsession with finishing every-
thing on time. I still can't.
The Pennsylvania Dutch say,
"The hurrier I go, the behinder I
get."
No matter how soon I finished
mowing the lawn, it had to be
mowed again, and usually
sooner than I liked. My idea was
to let the lawn go until the end
of the summer and then mow it
once.
Unfortunately, I could never
sell this time-saving idea to my
father, who had no time for my.
foolishness.
Now that I am an adult and
free to stop hurrying, I haven't.
On Friday afternoons, I usually
sketch out the following week.
Most of the time, it takes a
ream of paper. I have yet to find
any red underwear in my closet
that says, "Super Pastor" on the
front, and yet, I sometimes be-
lieve I can leap tall buildings in
a single bound and run faster
than a speeding bullet.
For,me, the perfect agenda
has yet to be laid out on any
given Friday. Optimist that I
am, I still try. "Sometimes I even
come close, as was the case last
week.
Everything was going fine. In
fact, I was even catching up on
some projects.
I was feeling quite good about
the week and my progress with
my schedule. Then Thursday
dawned.
Early Thursday morning, a


young woman called from the lo-
cal detoxification center and
asked if I could come and visit
her. A pastor has difficulty turn-
ing anyone away even if it
wrecks his schedule.
I cast a wistful eye at my "to-
do-list" and sighed. I almost
made it. I answered her in the
affirmative.
I arrived at the center around
nine o'clock, and registered at
the front desk. Then I was taken
to see the woman. I introduced
myself to her because I never
saw her before. A pastor friend
of mine gave her my name.
My visit lasted from 9 a.m.
until 2 p.m., and I must confess,
I did think about some of those
unfinished tasks lying on my
desk. But, I shook my head vig-
orously and forced myself to fo-
cus on the situation at hand.
At times, the best thing "to
do" is to leave everything unfin-
ished, disrupt my meticulously
prepared schedule, and give my
full time to someone in need.
Everyone seems obsessed
with time, or maybe I should say
the lack of it which is silly
when you think about it. We all
have the same 24 hours per day
but we don't all utilize those
hours the same way.
Only Americans are obsessed
with time. Other cultures have a
different idea about time.
A retired missionary friend of
mine related a story from his
first term in Africa. The area he
was stationed in was quite
primitive, so to keep some sem-
blance of time, he brought with
him a sundial.
The villagers had never seen


a sundial before, but were im-
pressed by the devotion the mis-
sionary gave to it.
To them, time meant very lit-
tle and they could not quite fig-
ure out the purpose of the mis-
sionary's sundial. All they knew
was that it was very important
to him.
One day, the missionary left
on a trip taking him out of the
village for about a month. The
people thought this would be an
excellent opportunity to do some-
thing special for their friend.
Knowing how much the mis-
sionary thought of the sundial,
they centered their attention on
it.
When the missionary re-
turned from his journey, he
found to his dismay that the peo-
ple had built a thatched roof
over his sundial to protect it
from the sun.
The Bible places a lot of im-
portance on time.
The Apostle Paul wrote, "And
that, knowing the time, that now
it is high time to awake out of
sleep: for now is our salvation
nearer than when we believed"
(Romans 13:11 KJV).
I can't save time, but I sure
can take advantage of the time I
have.

Being F(exibfe

At an early age, children usually learn that in order to
get along in this world, they have to be flexible. For exam-
ple, at bedtime a young child may rather stay up and play
than go to bed; however, they should be taught that they
cannot always have their own way, and that it is neces-
sary for them to get their rest. Adults, as well as children,
should be aware that being flexible in our society is nec-
essary .to live in harmony with the world around us.
Often, being flexible simply means being considerate of
others, and when we show this thoughtfulness to others,
our consideration will usually be reflected back to us.
Kindness, generosity, and fairness breeds good will, and
being thoughtful of others reflects God's values. However,
being stubborn and non-yielding, only to save face when
we are wrong, reflects egotism and self pride. Knowledge
is acquired through experience; and, understanding and
respecting another's point of view will help us to grow as
a person. God wants us to live in harmony with those
around us, and not always having things our way shows
respect for others.

Pride onlybreeds quarrels, but
wisdom is found in those who take
advice. N.I.V Proverbs 13:10

FM First Presbyterian to Celebrate 95 Years


November 3, 2005 The Polk County Democrat 3J1


By NANCY KITCHENS

In the year 1910, after a five-
day service conducted by Rev.
J.W. Rosenborough, evangelist of
St. Johns Presbytery, the First
Presbyterian Church of Fort
Meade was organized with 20
members, all adults.
Dr. E.L. Williams was elected
and ordained elder, and Kline 0.
Varn was elected deacon.
In 1911, the whole church
membership was organized into
a Sunday School. By May of
1914, the report to Presbytery
gave nine new members with 27
in Sunday School.
In the beginning, services
were held only once a month in
the Baptist house of worship,
then in the Council Chamber of
the city, then in the High School
auditorium and in a store.
"The Presbyterian Missionary
and Aid Society" (Women of the

Church) was organized in April
1913, and immediately set to
work to buy a lot and build a
church.
By 1918, under the direction,
encouragement, and enthusiasm
of Dr. H.A. Tucker, who was
minister at the time, a bunga-
low-type church was built on a
lot, bought by the efforts of the
women.
This first church was built
where First Presbyterian now
stands, 18 North Pine, and stood
there until after the new church
was built in 1959.
Two of the early families, Mr.
and Mrs. Kline 0. Varn, and Mr.
and Mrs. David Hugh Varn, are
still represented in the church's
membership today. Fourth gen-
eration Robert Fort and Jeff
Hancock are ordained session
members. Robert Fort's father,
Dr. Bob Fort, and grandfather,
Richard Fort, also have served


Sunday School teachers Leona Rebinder and
Mrs. Ryan Wood are shown on the steps of the old
church in 1930. Students in the back row in-

Jeff Hancock's mother, Jayne
Varn Bates, and grandparents,
Buddy and Inez Varn, also have
served.
Lois Varn Turner, daughter of
Kline and Laura Varn, was the
first woman elder, elected in
1973.
Mary Varn Fort and Caroline
Varn Loadholtes were baptized
at First Presbyterian on Easter
Sunday, 1922. Both are still very
active in the church today.
Fourth generation Kline Bear-
rentine is Synthia player during
Sunday worship.
Rev. Lawrence Sthreshley
came to First Presbyterian to fill
the pulpit on a temporary basis
in 1959, and continued to serve
the congregation for 30 years.
During that time, he and his
wife, Josephine, raised their
three children, Julia, Rebekah,
and Fitzhugh, in the new manse

Nine years after Lawrence re-
tired, the church sold the manse
to Fitzhugh, who is presently an
elder, and his family. Church
meetings and social events still
continue to be held there.
The congregation, though!
small, continues to thrive under
the leadership of Rev. Dr. Jack
Taylor and his wife, Gena.
A celebration of the first 95
years is being held this weekend,
Nov. 5 and 6.
Saturday will be family and
game day on the grounds of the
church from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Sunday morning's worship serv-
ice will begin at 10:30 with a
processional of bagpipes, fol-
lowed by a covered dish lunch.
Members, friends, and those
who have a connection to the his-
tory of First Presbyterian
Church are invited to attend.


Seeds from

the Sower

By Michael A. Guido


A little fellow was standing on
a scale, and being ambitious to
outweigh others, he puffed out
his cheeks and swelled up like a
frog.
"That won't do you any good,"
cried a friend. "You can only
weigh what you are!"
There was a king who tried
that stunt, and the Lord said to
him, "Thou art weighed in the
balances, and art found want-
ing."
Today the Lord places you on
His scales. They're perfect.
As He checks the weight, He
says, "There is none righteous,
no, not one."
Everyone without Christ is
"found wanting."
Receive the Lord Jesus now,
and let Him give you the right-
eousness you can't earn, won't
you?

Her husband died, and she in-
scribed on his tombstone, "The
light of my life has gone out."
But two years later, she met
and married a very fine gentle-
man, and she asked her pastor,
"What shall I do about that in-
scription?"
"Just. add," he.'answered, "I
struck another match."
Trials and tears will come to
you. They come to everyone. No
one is without suffering.
But no one need be without
the Savior in suffering. Ask Him
to come into your heart and
home, and you'll find He's a very
present help in trouble.
When He' comes in, He'll turn
your tragedy into triumph and
lead you on from victory to vic-
tory.-

Following their time of Bible
reading and prayer, little Debbie
jumped into bed.
Suddenly, her face broke into
a big smile, and she asked excit-
edly, "Do you know what I'm go-
ing to do when I see the Lord?"
"No," answered her father.
"What are you going to do?"
"I'm going to run up to Him,"
she said, "and give Him a big
hug and kiss."
To her arid to all who know
Him, our Lord is approachable
and lovable.
Hear Him as He tenderly in-
vites, "Come unto Me, all ye that
labor and are heavy laden, and I
will give you rest."
You will come to Him now,
won't you?

A hitchhiker, Reginald Camp-
bell of Las Vegas, became aw-
fully angry because he couldn't
get a ride.
Using sticks and stones, he
built a dangerous roadblock in
Death Valley National Monu-
ment.
How. like a lot of people we
know!
Failing in their attempt to
succeed, they build roadblocks of
criticism and condemnation in
the way of others.
But the Bible says, "Let us
stop therefore turning critical
eyes to one another. If we must
be critical, let us be critical of
our own conduct and see that we
do nothing to make a brother
stumble and fall."


By ROGER CAMPBELL

What if you were the mother
of 12 children and when the
youngest started preschool you
wondered what to do with the
rest of your life?
Mary Jo Copeland, a Minnea-
polis mother, found herself in
that position and, according to
Margaret Nelson and Kerry
Pickett, co-authors of "Saving
Body and Soul: The Mission of
Mary Jo Copeland," she told her
children they'd have to help
more around the house because
she was going out to share the
love in her family with those
who didn't have that kind of
love.
Little did Mary Jo, her hus-
band, Dick, and their 12 children
know how far that decision to
share their love with those in
need would take them.
On a frigid Minnesota winter
day, a man saw Mary Jo distrib-
uting hot coffee to homeless peo-
ple and donated $2,000 to help
enlarge her work; he also be-
came her first volunteer.
At that time, Mary Jo and
Dick were working out of a
rented run-down storefront
building, but better days were
ahead.
Nelson and Pickett say that
with each success, this once re-
clusive homemaker grew more
confident in what she believed
God was calling her to do, ena-
bling her to move the formerly
small ministry to large facilities,
including an apartment building
that has become a transitional
home to more than 500 people at
a time without any govern-
ment funds.
Mary Jo Copeland's Caring
and Sharing Hands buildings at
the edge of downtown Minneapo-
lis are now filled daily with peo-
ple seeking help because of job
loss, lack of affordable housing,
family problems, addictions, and
other life destroyers.
Hundreds line up for hugs


and help, receiving the benefits
of a woman who became con-
vinced she had been given a mis-
sion to reach out to hurting peo-
ple in need of God's love.
Recent hurricanes, causing
the loss of homes and lives, have
drawn the world's attention
again to the name of an organi-
zation that can always be
counted on to lovingly provide
both physical and spiritual
needs: The Salvation Army.
This helpful ministry was
born in the heart of one man,
William Booth. The poor and suf-
fering people of London became
such a concern to Booth that
meeting them in all their areas
of need became his mission.
When near the end of his life,
Booth was asked for the secret of
his success.
He replied that when he had
become burdened about the poor
of London, he had surrendered
his life entirely to God, seeking
His help in ministering to them.
This kind of commitment estab-
lished a divine partnership that
enabled Booth to accomplish
things that most would have
thought impossible.
My friend, John Gunn, was a
successful pastor who found him-
self unable to ignore the needs of
thousands of children in his com-
munity;
This call to a special mission
moved John to leave his church
and start "The Power Company
Kids Club," an organization that
ministers to more than 2,000
children weekly, bringing them
to faith, changing their lives,
and pointing them to churches
near their homes..
What's your mission?
You're better qualified to meet
the needs of some in your
church, your community, maybe
even the world, than anyone.
So get off the sidelines and
get involved. Trust God to enable
you to do what needs to be done.
Don't miss your mission.


ePEP Launches For Students


E-Personal Education Planner
(ePEP), has launched today on.
FACTS.org, Florida's official on-
line student advising system.
"With the significant in-
creases in enrollment in AP
classes and more high school stu-
dents taking the SAT, it is clear
that students are recognizing the
importance of planning for
higher education," said Governor
Jeb Bush. "e-PEP is an incredi-
bly useful tool, allowing these
students to better chart their
course for future success."
According to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Labor, by 2010, 85 per-
cent of occupations will require
post-high school education and
training.
Adults who have only a high
school diploma are twice as
likely to be unemployed as those
who have a bachelor's degree, ac-
cording to the U.S. Bureau of La-
bor Statistics.
The new tool allows students
to take a proactive part in plan-
ning courses for each year of
high school. The planner offers
course options based on student
goals after graduation, such as
admission to college, attending a
vocational training center or go-
ing directly into the workforce.
FACTS.org has conducted
training sessions at pilot high
schools in Broward, Dade, Or-
ange, Hillsborough, Pinellas, Du-
val and Leon counties to show
students and guidance counsel-
ors how to use the online plan-
ner.
The new tool also was pre-
viewed for more than 3,000 guid-
ance counselors around the state
during the State University Sys-
tem Admissions Workshop tour
held annually each fall.
According to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Education, students who
take rigorous courses in high
school will earn, by the time they


- -


\(^ -

are 27 years old, 13.1 percent
more in wages than those who do
not whether they go to college
or not.
Data from the U.S. Bureau of
the Census, in 2000, showed that
the median annual earnings for
workers ages 25 and over were
$24,267 with a high school di-
ploma, $26,693 with an associ-
ate's degree and $40,314 with a
bachelor's degree.
That translates to a person
with a bachelor's degree earning
66 percent more than a person
with only a high school diploma.
The new ePEP tool is ex-
pected to assist students
throughout the state by allowing
them to make informed choices
about education options, defin-
ing their priorities and getting a
realistic idea of the coursework
that will be required to reach ca-
reer goals.
Guidance counselors can ac-
cess their students' planners on-
line at any time and can leave
comments for students.
"Since our counselor-to-stu-
dent ratio is approximately one
to 450, I've found FACTS.org to
be invaluable in helping stu-
dents plan and view their school
and career options," said Teri
Gimbel, guidance counselor at
Lincoln High School in Tallahas-
see.
"FACTS.org puts the student
in charge of the planning process
and allows me to spend more.
time with those who need indi-
vidual attention."
Students who complete an
ePEP by Dec. 1 can enter a
drawing for an IBM ThinkPad
laptop computer and leather
backpack.

online advising tools, visit www.

ida Center for Advising and Aca-
demic Support at 850-245-0518.
