Owner of Condemned Building


Sues City, Contractor, Engineer


AUDREY MARTHA of Bartow was a passenger
in a Chevrolet pickup truck that crashed Saturday
afternoon in Bartow. Martha, who was not wearing
her seat belt, was thrown from the truck, and later
died from her injuries. Gregorio Baltazar, the driver
of the truck, was arrested and charged with driving


without a license in a crash involving death. The
driver of the Mercury Grand Marquis, Heyok
Bowles of Sebring, was not injured in the crash. -

The owner of the condemned
Philip's Department Store build-
ing filed suit last week against
the city and against the contrac-
tor and thd engineer for the Main
Street redesign.
Neal O'Toole is co-owner with
his law partner, Richard
McKinley, of Bartow Properties,
Inc., which owns the building at
330 East Main St.
In the suit, O'Toole alleges
that the contractor, David Nelson
Construction Co., caused damage
to the building, and that the
engineer, Post, Buckley, Schuh
and Jernigan, which inspected
the building, was wrong when it
told the city the building was in
danger of collapse.
The suit says that the city had
an obligation "to protect the pub-
lic and their property from haz-
ards by work performed by the
contractor."
It also says that the city acted
improperly in inspecting the
building and it ordering its
immediate closure.
"My primary beef is that it
was condemned without notice,"
O'Toole told The Democrat. "It
withstood three hurricanes last
year."
He also said that only the east
end of the ground floor was in
any danger of structural failure,
and that the city should not have


shut down the entire 18,000
square foot building.
One of O'Toole's tenants,
Philip's Antiques, has closed, and
the other, The Gym, has relocat-
ed to another downtown build-
ing.
O'Toole asked City Atty.
George Dunlap last month to
waive the requirement that the
city be given six months notice of
intent to sue, and Dunlap refused
to do so.
O'Toole said that will stop the
suit seeking damages for alleged
negligence by the city, but should
not stop the portion of the suit
relating to the city's order that
the building be vacated.
The contractor and the engi-
neer are not entitled to the six
months notice required for a law-
suit against a government
agency.
O'Toole seeks to have a jury
award compensation for damage
to the building, business losses,
loss of rent, and diminution of
the value of his property. The suit
does not say how much money
the owners are seeking.
On Sept. 12, O'Toole was noti-
fied, that as a result of the engi-
neer's inspection, he had 24
hours to vacate the building,
which the city said "was mani-
festly unsafe, considered a public
nuisance, (and) was in danger of
collapse."
The decision was made based
on "limited damage occurring to
a singular column on the south-


east corner of the structure," the
suit says.
The owners were not given a
chance "to be heard or provided
with a judicial procedure" before
the building was condemned by
the city, the suit says, and the
owners have been refused re-
entry.
Another count of the suit
charges the city with trespass for
"conducting an unauthorized
investigation and removing occu-
pants who were entitled to use
and possession of the property."
It alleges that the engineering
firm "knew that the city and/or
contractor specifically and
expressly retained their services
for the purpose of instituting a
condemnation proceeding."
The firm "failed to perform an
investigation sufficient in scope
to make such a determination,"
the suit says, "failed to perform
the necessary testing or calcula-
tions necessary to render such an
opinion," and failed to consider
vacating only part of the build-
ing.
In a letter to Dunlap, O'Toole
said he had the opinion of three
engineers "stating that there is
no concern of eminent collapse
and condemnation of the entire
structure was not called for."
Dunlap said he notified the
city's insurer of the impending
lawsuit when O'Toole told him
last month that he intended to
file suit.
O'Toole was scheduled for a


hearing before the city's building
and housing board of appeals on
Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 8,
appealing the decision of Donnie
True, the city's building official,
to condemn the building.
The city agreed to postpone
the hearing after O'Toole said he
had not been given sufficient
notice, and that he needed time
to obtain subpoenas for witness-
es.
The hearing has not been
rescheduled.
O'Toole said he has several
contractors looking at two possi-
ble ways to repair the building.
One would involve installation
of steel columns inside the build-
ing and "earthquake rods" to
shore up the exterior walls.
Earthquake rods, installed hori-
zontally across the entire length
of a building, are used in some
earthquake-prone areas of the
country to strengthen walls.
The other option, O'Toole said,
is to replace the existing columns
in the southeast corner of the
building.
Because of the structural dam-
age, the contractor has postponed
milling and repaving of Main
Street.
Milling, a process in which the
upper layer of asphalt is ground
up in preparation for repaving
the street, generates a great deal
of vibration, and the contractor
has declined to do that work until
the building is shored up.


Roll-Out Garbage Carts Proposed


Man Charged In Crash


That Kills Bartow Woman


A Bartow woman, 41-year-old
Audrey Martha, died Saturday
after she was involved in a two-
vehicle crash on State Road 60
and 91 Mine Road in Bartow.
The accident occurred around
2:50 p.m., when Gregorio
Baltazar, 38, of Wahneta, was


traveling east on SR 60 in a 1993
Chevrolet pickup truck, and
made a left turn at 91 Mine
Road, into the path of a west-
bound 2003 Mercury Grand
Marquis, according to Florida
Highway Patrol Trooper Larry
Coggins.


The front of the Grand
Marquis collided with the right
side of the truck, sending the
truck rotating counter-clockwise.
Martha, a passenger in the
truck, was not wearing a seat
belt and was thrown from the
truck onto the highway, Coggins
said.
She was airlifted to Lakeland
Regional Medical Center, where
she later died from her injuries.
The driver of the Grand
Marquis, 54-year-old Heyok
Bowles of Sebring, was wearing a
seat belt and was not injured in
the crash, Coggins said.
Baltazar was transported to
Winter Haven Hospital for treat-
ment of minor injuries.
He was arrested Sunday and
charged with driving without a
license in a crash involving
death, Coggins said.


AT 11 A.M. ON 11/11, Bartow will join communities across the
nation in observing Veterans Day. The local event is sponsored by sev-
eral organizations and will take place on Friday at Veterans Walk on
South Broadway, north of Bartow Public Library. (Photo by Boyce
Garmon)


Veterans Day 2005 will be cel-
ebrated at Veterans Walk on
Friday, Nov. 11, with the program
beginning at 11 a.m.
Veterans Walk is located on
South Broadway Avenue, just
north of the Bartow Public
Library. Featured there are mon-
uments to those who have served
in many wars, and a special walk
with the names of those from
Bartow who have given all for
their country.
The event is sponsored by the
American Legion, Bartow
Chapter Daughters of the
American Revolution, Veterans of
Foreign Wars, Bartow High
School JROTC, and the City of
Bartow.


Bartow residents will begin
using standardized roll-out carts
to take their garbage and trash to
the curb if a proposal being made
to the city commission tonight is
approved.
An ordinance to be considered
on first reading would have the
city provide one roll-out cart to
each home in the city without
charge.
Residents would be required to
place their garbage and trash in
the container, roll it to the curb
before 7 a.m., and return in to the
house before dark.
Both household garbage and
yard trash would have to be
bagged, the same as at present,
and the bags placed in the roll-out
container.
Additional containers would be
furnished to homes for a fee of $2
per month. Replacement carts
would cost $4.
The city's monthly garbage col-
lection fee of $18 would remain
the same.
Customers would be required
to return their carts to the city
when moving, and would be sub-
ject to a $60 fee for neglecting to
do so when having their utilities
disconnected.
Containers that were stolen or
vandalized would be replaced
without cost if a report of the
theft or vandalism were filed with
the police department.
Roll-out carts have been used
in the downtown area by small
businesses for several months.
The household carts would be
identical to the carts in the dowri-


Serving as master of cere-
monies will be S.L. Frisbie, IV,
owner/publisher of The Polk
County Democrat and retired
colonel with the U.S. Army
National Guard.
Others taking part in the cere-
mony are Rev. Cecil Radcliffe, III,
U.S. Army National Guard chap-
lain; Commander James
Slaughter, Bartow Post #2405,
Veterans of Foreign Wars;
Commander Tom Sage, Knowles

Legion; Bartow High School

Seating will be available.


town area, except that they would
be green. The carts for commer-
cial customers are brown.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
said the city plans to purchase
two "side-loader" garbage trucks
which allow one driver to empty
the containers. At present, the
city has a driver and two sanita-
tion workers on each truck.
The city has been using some
temporary labor in addition to
regular city employees to empty
garbage cans. The money now
being spent on temporary employ-
ees would be used to pay for the
carts and trucks.
Full-time sanitation employees
would retain their jobs', DeLegge
said.
Each of the side-loader trucks
will be able to service 900 homes
each, for a total of 3,600 homes
per week (two collections per
week by each truck).
Rear-end loaders with a crew
of three typically serve 805 house-
holds a day. Two of these crews
will be kept on initially.
Eventually, DeLegge said, he
plans to convert to roll-out carts
citywide.
Every household would get a
roll-out cart, he said. Some would
be serviced by the side-loader
trucks, and the others by three-
man crews.
Yard trash collection would
continue to be collected on
Wednesday, and the city would
continue to required household


A controversial zoning ordi-
nance authorizing development
of a subdivision on lots that are
90 feet wide on E.F. Griffin Road
will come up for the Bartow city
commission's action for the sec-
ond time tonight.
On Oct. 17, the commission
deferred action on the ordinance,
because the zoning board recom-
mended that the zoning be disap-
proved.
Commissioners held a joint
meeting with the zoning board on
Oct. 31 to discuss housing densi-
ties, but no decisions were
reached. There was no discussion
of the subdivision, thus far called
simply "E.F. Griffin Road
Development" in planning docu-
ments.


garbage to be -placed out on differ-
ent days from yard trash.
Landfills are required to dispose
of yard trash differently from
household garbage.
The city is anticipating a net
savings in operating costs, result-
ing in a larger transfer of profits
to the general fund after the con-
version is complete and the new
trucks are paid for, DeLegge said.
Projected savings in balance of
the current fiscal year, which
began on Oct. 1, is $41,433,
DeLegge said.
If approved by the city commis-
sion, the conversion will be made
after the first of the year. The
date will depend on when the new
trucks are delivered, DeLegge
said.
The city expects to finance the
purchase of carts and trucks over
a period of five years at a cost of
$771,500.
The revised sanitation ordi-
nance also would establish regu-
lations for commercial refuse
haulers operating within the city
limits.
If passed on first reading
tonight, the roll-out cart ordi-
nance will come up for a public
hearing at the commission's Nov.
21 meeting.
The commission will meet for a
work session at 5:30 this after-
noon at city hall, and will recon-
vene at 6:30 for its regular busi-
ness meeting.
Other items on the agenda:


The usual procedure is for zon-
ing board recommendations to be
submitted to the city commis-
sion, which instructs the city
staff whether or not to draw an
ordinance.
On this item, that procedure
was bypassed, and Planning Dir.
Robert Wiegers prepared an ordi-
nance approving the zoning and
submitted it to the commission.
The text of the ordinance
acknowledges that the zoning
board "recommends against the
zoning" but that the city commis-
sion "does not adopt the recom-
mendation."
Several E.F. Griffin Road resi-
dents have protested the
approval of high-density subdivi-
sions in that largely rural area.


Consideration of pay raises
for the city manager, city auditor,
and city attorney.
A presentation to the city by
the Zonta Club of Bartow com-
memorating the 86th anniversary
of Zonta International.
A proclamation designating
Nov. 8 as Community and
Regional Planning Day.
Appointments to fill vacan-
cies on the board of adjustment
and the zoning and planning com-
mission.
Approval of the Community
Redevelopment Agency's election
of Ken Riley as chairman and
Gary Wilson as vice-chairman.
Final reading and a public
hearing on an ordinance to rezone
15.3 acres of land on U.S.
Highway 17 North, owned by
Duratek Wall Corp., as 1-2 (indus-
trial) and conservation lands.
First reading on ordinances
to:
(1) Zone 16.7 acres of newly-
annexed property on the north
side of Gandy Road as R-1-B,
which requires lots with 90 feet of
frontage and 10,000 square feet
total. The zoning board recom-
mended approval.
(2) Zone 24.4 acres of newly-
annexed land on the west side of
E.F. Griffin Road as R-1-B. The
zoning board recommended
against this action, but it is being
submitted for the commission's

(See Page 11 Col. 7)


Most homes already in the area
are on lots of at least one acre.
The city has created Rural
Estate-1 and Rural Estate-2 zon-
ing categories allowing only one
or two homes per acre, and
neighbors have urged that zoning
be assigned to new subdivisions.
Several subdivisions already
have been approved with R-1
.zoning, the city's highest density
designation for single-family
developments. R-l zoning allows
frontages of 70 feet.
The development coming
before the commission tonight
would be a fenced and gated sub-
division developed to R-1-B stan-
dards, the second highest density
for single-family homes.

ACS Honors Bartow Relay


For the third year in a row,
Bartow's Relay For Life has been
included in an elite group known
as the Six Figure Club, the
American Cancer Society's recog-
nition of those community fund-
raisers that bring in more than
$100,000.
The Bartow Relay For Life
raised more than $165,000 dur-
ing its April 2005 Relay, far ex-
ceeding its goal of $135,000.
"We're thrilled, but frankly
not surprised," said Neal Dun-
a can, chairman of the 2005 Relay
and the upcoming 2006 Relay. "
Every year, we have done better
P and better because the Bartow
community is just that a com-
munity. We pull together for
causes we believe in, and it's just
so much fun for everyone."
The Bartow Relay's accom-
plishment is all the more impres-


sive because, unlike last year,
Fort Meade was not part of the
Bartow Relay in 2005.
Fort Meade held its own Re-
lay this year, and more than
doubled its goal of $20,000.
The American Cancer Society
held Relays in several Polk
County communities in 2005, in-
cluding Lakeland, but Bartow's
was the only one that exceeded
the $100,000 mark.
Relay For Life is an overnight
event in which teams of 10 or
more people commit to walking
around a track in shifts during
the entire event, which lasts
from early Friday evening until
mid-morning on Saturday. Prior
to and during the Relay, teams
conduct fundraisers.
Relay For Life is the Ameri-
can Cancer Society's premier
fundraising event. Overall in

Eugene Millers Celebrate

Golden Wedding Anniversary


In a formal candlelight setting
in the Ministry Center of First
Baptist Church of Bartow, Gene
and Marcie Miller celebrated
their 50th wedding anniversary
among family and friends.
Floral arrangements of
mums, roses, stock, delphinum,
statice, and capia by Hilda
Spears decorated the center of
the room.
The bride's wedding gown and
a bridesmaid's gown were dis-
played in a garden setting, along
with the couple's cake, which
held the topper used in Mrs. Mil-
ler's parents, Mr. and Mrs. B.L.
Stewart's, 50th wedding anniver-
sary celebration in 1971.
The highlight of the evening
was Helen Gienau singing, "I
Love Thee," (Grieg), accompa-
nied by Betty Hain, who sang
and played at the ceremony 50
years ago.
The couple's pastor, Dr. Ron
Burks, presented the couple's
wedding pictures on a screen,
and gave a reading entitled,
Yes, I Am a Senior Citizen."

Florida, 258 communities held
Relays and raised more than $17
million. Worldwide, Relay For
Life raised $364 million in 2005,
making the American Cancer So-
ciety among the most effective
fundraising charities in the
world.
"Relay is a real success story,"
Duncan said, "because it's not
just about raising money, it's
about raising awareness about
cancer detection, treatment, edu-
cation, and the incredible sup-
port that organizations like the
American Cancer Society offer
for anyone affected by cancer."
The 2006 Bartow Relay For
Life will be held April 28-29, at
the Bartow High School Sta-
dium.
"We've got an even bigger
challenge for next year," said
Duncan, who is also the director
of communications and special
events at the Bartow Chamber of
Commerce. "Our goal for 2006 is
$175,000."
But Duncan is confident Bar-
tow's Relay can reach that goal.
"We already have a lot of vet-
eran teams signed up and con-
ducting fundraisers."
Anyone interested in signing
up a team for the Relay can call
Duncan at 533-7125.

The Polk County Democrat

lhen The Polk County Democrat published its
first issue, on Aug. 28, 1931, Loyal Frisbic, son
and grandson of the paper's founders, was 16
years old, and worked as an unpaid printer's devil and
stamp collecting columnist. Loyal's newspaper career had
begun at the age of 9, when he and his family still lived in
Tampa. He carefully typed each of the six copies of the
Neighborhood News, which had a staff of three: himself
and two neighborhood girls. One of the girls shared writ-
ing responsibilities, and the other illustrated each copy in
pencil. It was distributed free to the families of the staff. _

Veterans Day: A Time


To Support Our Troops


Eighty-seven years ago this Friday, at
the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th
month in 1918, World War I came to an
end.
America had lost 126,000 soldiers.
Twenty-three years later, America was
drawn into World War II; when it ended
four years later, 405,399 Americans had
died.
They died in a cause that America and
the Free World agreed was worth dying
for.
We didn't ask for either war, but when
we entered them, we entered to win. And
win we did.
As America recognizes all of its men and
women who have served in uniform on
Veterans Day each November, and honors
those who lost their lives in battle on
Memorial Day each May, we often use the
occasion to reemphasize what must be a
fundamental doctrine of this nation:
When Americans are committed to the
battlefield, they must be committed with
the resolve of the American people to see
them through to victory.
No lesser cause is worthy of exposing
American soldiers to the horrors of war; no
lesser cause is worthy of even one
American soldier's life.
War is a way of life for some countries,
particularly in the MiddleEast.A'mnricaris"
have our 'New Year's' Day bowl games;.
other countries have their interminable
wars; a loss this year can be eclipsed by a
victory next year.-
No other nation places a greater premi-
um on the value of human 'life than the
United States of America. ,
We do not have suicide bombers who
are indoctrinated withthe belief that the
Deity will reward them in eternity for
killing themselves and randomly-selected
innocents. '
Ours is not a culture of violence.
History has judged that the American
entry into Vietnam was a strategic blun-
der. The failure was not of American sol-
diers, but of American .leadrs.
The greatest blunder was that we
entered that military morass without a


clear objective of what we expected our
troops to do, and ultimately we lost the
national resolve, from the town square to
the White House, to win the war.
We did not achieve "peace with honor;"
we lost the war. The words are bitter and
stick in the throat, but we must speak
them, and vow that we will not make the
same mistake again.
History will judge the wisdom, of the
war in Iraq. While there are.disturbing par-
allels with the war in Vietnam, there are at
least three notable differences:
Members of the armed forces believe
in what they are doing; that was hardly a
unanimous attitude of the American sol-
dier in Vietnam.
Most Americans, even those who
don't support the war, support our troops.
It is possible to do one and not the other.
The survival rate from battlefield
wounds is higher by far than in any previ-
ous war. Body armor and more sophisti-
cated medical care are saving American
lives.
Let each of us regardless of our opin-
ion of the wisdom of the war in Iraq -
pledge our support to our men and
women in uniform. Let us make it clear -
and insist that our nation's political leaders
make it clear that they have behind
them the' will of the American people to
see them through to victory.
No lesser commitment is worthy of the
lives of American troops.

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

Bitterness Is Okay; Ignorance Is Not


A minority of America's politi-
cal leadership and America's
journalists have served in the
armed forces.
That is not an inherently bad
thing, but it means that those
who set the policies for the armed
forces, and those who report
what is going on in the armed
forces, should be sure they know
what they're doing.
Too often, they don't.
A nationally-published colum-
nist for the St. Louis Post-
Dispatch, Kevin Horrigan, last
week showed himself to be igno-
rant of both the substance and
form of the United States Army.
In writing of the death of a sol-
dier, he said: "His rank was spe-
cialist, an E-3 in pay grade. E-3s
are cannon fodder."
Wrong on both counts.
The rank of specialist is what
used to be called specialist four,
an E-4, drawing pay equal to a
corporal, but without the troop-


leading responsibilities of a non-
commissioned officer. It is not an
egregious error, unless you are
supposed to know what you're
talking about. Journalists are.
There are millions of American
veterans who know the differ-
ence.
Far more offensive than that
gaffe was his "cannon fodder"
comment.
It suggests that the Army puts
junior enlisted men (whether E-3s
or E-4s) in harm's way with little
regard for their safety or survival.
It suggests that sergeants, and
staff sergeants, and sergeants first
class, and master sergeants, and
first sergeants, and sergeants
major, and warrant and commis-
sioned officers of all ranks, are
immune to the dangers of the bat-
tlefield, or are unconcerned about
junior soldiers.
That is patently offensive. And
it is untrue.
As a retired member of the


peacetime Army, I watch, with
perhaps more interest than most,
the stories of casualties, including
the ranks of those who are lost.
It is undeniable that junior sol-
diers are more likely to become
casualties, and for the most obvi-
ous reasons: there are more of
them.
Back when I underwent
infantry training, there was one
sergeant for a five-man fire team;
one staff sergeant for a squad
made up of two fire teams; one
sergeant first class for a platoon
of four squads; and one first
sergeant for a company of four
platoons.
The numbers have changed
through reorganization of combat
units, but the principle is the
same.
In my unscientific observation
of casualty reports, the NCO
ranks are experiencing losses pro-
portionally equal to or greater
than the junior soldiers whom


they lead.
In some cases, it is because
they expose themselves to a
greater degree of danger in pro-
tecting the lives of their subordi-
nates. Soldiers do stuff like that.
The death of every member of
the armed forces is a tragedy for
the family and for the nation. The
degree of the tragedy does n.i.
vary with the rank of the casualty.
To be bitter over the loss of a
soldier is understandable; my
best friend in college was killed
on his third tour in Vietnam as a
Marine Corps captain, and I still
harbor some bitterness that he
died in a war that America didn't
have the will to win.
Journalists are entitled to
express their bitterness, but they
have an obligation to know what
they are talking about.
Specialists are not E-3s, and E-
3s are not cannon fodder.


OUR READERS SAY


'Too Late for Us'


BARTOW- I read with inter-
est your article "City Officials
Study Development Standards
For New Subdivisions" in the
Nov. 3 issue of The Polk County.
Democrat.
You may remember a few
years ago the saga of Sago Palms
and Taylor Brooke. At that time
the zoning board recommended
R-1-3-A but the commission in
their wisdom allowed R-1. That
opened the floodgates for James
Pointe (this being in the county)
but still R-1; then we dealt with
Taylor Landings.
With the cooperation of the
developer, not, Mr. Wiegers or the
zoning board or the commission,
we will have transitional hous-


ing, starting with 70-foot lots next
to Taylor Brooke increasing to 90-
foot lots next to Sago Palms
which are 110-foot lots.
It appears to me that the dis-
cussion at the "meeting of the
minds" deals with the issues that
were raised by Sago Palms resi-
dents.
As for some members' con-
cerns about walled communities,
they need to drive down Taylor
Road (which should now be re-
named Taylor Alley). It used to be
a quiet little road lined with trees.
It will soon be a busy road lined
with walls and fences. Still little
with no sign of widening or
improvement.
They also refer to County


Road 540-A and the traffic prob-
lems. What about Old Eagle Lake
Road? The new subdivisions that
are in place or proposed consist
of The Meeting House, Taylor
Brooke, James Pointe, Taylor
Landings and another just a little
further east of Taylor Road. All
this on top of the existing proper-
ties amount to a disaster waiting
to happen, and a duplicate of
County Road 540-A.
Their main concern seems to
be E.F. Griffin Road. My concern
is for the whole of Bartow, both
city and county. Sago Palms and
James Pointe may be county, but
it is still Bartow. The majority of
the residents work in Bartow,
their children attend Bartow


schools, they visit Bartow doctors
and the Bartow hospital. Some of
us volunteer for charity work in
Bartow, or contribute to commu-
nity activities in Bartow. Yes we
should have a voice in matters
that concern us all.
Members need to listen to the
community. We are not against
growth and progress, but we do
not want to be another Lakeland
or Orlando. That is why we live
in Bartow.
Taylor Road and Old Eagle
Lake Road have already been
ruined. It is too late for us, but
there is still hope for the rest of
Bartow.

FORT MEADE My hus-
band and I moved here the first
of October from Clearwater.
In all the years of living in
Clearwater, we had as many
trick or treaters as we have
grandchildren, and that eventu-
ally got us up to 10.
When we went for
Halloween treats this year, we
bought 40 popcorn balls. I talked
to my brother and he said this
would be plenty. Another broth-
er said children wouldn't like
popcorn balls, so I went and got
probably 150 candy bars.
Then I felt safe.
When 6:30 rolled around, here
came the witches, mummies,
cowboys, ghosts, scary masks,
etc. Trucks pulling trailers, trac-
tors pulling trailers, walkers.
After 15 minutes, I had to
send Dan for more candy. He
came back with about 300 pieces.
The streets were packed with


children dressed .in
tumes, like a
parade. We had a
ball.
We sat out. pass-
ing out treats for the
children, being
"afraid" of the scary
ones and telling the
princesses how cute
they were.
Every child had
at least one adult
with them, and the
sound of the kids
was unremarkable.
I would have never
experienced such a
thing in Clearwater.
Fort Meade has
the Big City beat
hands down.
We're looking
forward to next
year.
Thanks to all the


their cos- trick or treaters.

ment to the community of Lake
Wales has been demonstrated
for more than two decades."


November Jamboree

Planned Saturday Night


CUTE, ADORABLE and a native of Tampa, Lowry Park's new
baby elephant needs a name, and one Polk school is in the running
to provide it. (Photo provided)


las County, teacher Sarah
Eichler, 2nd grade.
The five baby names will be
available for voting through
Monday, Dec. 12. The calf will
receive the name with the most
votes during a special celebra-
tion at the zoo later that month.
The teachers and students se-
lected as the five finalists will
each receive complimentary ad-
mission passes to Tampa' Lowry
Park Zoo to visit the baby ele-
phant on exhibit.
They also will be invited to
the naming ceremony in Decem-
ber.
The winning classroom will
receive a field trip to the zoo
next year, including transporta-


tion, admission, refreshments
and other rewards.
If all continues to go well with
mother and calf, the pair is ex-
pected to make their public de-
but on Friday, Nov. 11.
Hours on public exhibit will
be limited for some time, and de-
termined by mother and calf as
they establish a pattern of be-
havior.
The calf continues to nurse
and nap frequently, so at this
time, zookeepers anticipate the
pair will spend the mornings
outside in the main elephant
habitat, and the afternoons in
privacy in the elephant night
house.

Children are expected to ex-
hibit good sportsmanship during

cials who set the worst example.

bring, was arrested and taken to
the Polk County Jail on Satur-
day, Nov. 5, charged with bat-
tery on an official.
Starks, who was working as a
lineman during the game, alleg-

According to Fort Meade Po-
lice Officer Steve Parker, Hoff-
man suffered pain to his jaw,
abrasions to his arms, elbows,
knees and nose, and also sus-
tained a loose tooth.
His watch band and prescrip-
tion glasses also were damaged,
Parker said.
Hoffman told police that dur-
ing the game, Starks became an-
gry at him after a call pertaining
to a play.
Hoffman said he wiped his
mustache and heard someone
say, "Did he shoot us a bird?"


Starks then ran toward Hoff-
man and "repeatedly struck him
in the face and head with closed
fist," Parker said.
Clifford Gardner, a witness
from Frostproof, intervened to
defend Hoffman.
After the arrest, Starks told
police he'd had "ongoing prob-
lems" with Hoffman throughout
the game, and that Hoffman
used profane language toward
him after every call.
Starks also said he had acted
in self-defense, and that Hoff-
man had struck him several
times in the mouth.

Congressman Adam H. Put-
nam (R-Bartow) has pledged to
work with U.S. Agriculture Sec-
retary Mike Johanns on behalf of
Florida's farmers and ranchers
who have been battered by Hur-
ricane Wilma.
In a letter to the secretary,
Putnam thanked the administra-
tion for its assistance in provid-
ing relief for Florida's second
largest economic sector, which
has been battered by eight
storms over the past two years.
"Florida has sustained a re-
cord number of hurricanes in the
last two years, including six reg-
istering as a category two or
more in intensity," Putnam said.
"I am writing today to draw your
attention to the agricultural
losses suffered under Hurricane
Wilma that recently swept
through the heart of Florida's
farming and ranching region."
Putnam cited the federal re-
sponse to Hurricanes Charley,
Frances, Ivan and Jeanne as a
model for the future.
"The framework for disaster
assistance developed in response
to the 2004 hurricanes may
serve as a useful tool in provid-
ing meaningful aid those whose
crops where impacted in the
storm path of Hurricane Wilma,"
Putnam said. "As more specific
damage assessments become
available in the coming days and
weeks, I look forward to working
with you to provide assistance
for affected Florida farmers and
ranchers."
In another agriculture-related
development, Putnam praised
passage of the Agriculture, Rural

Administration, and Related
Agencies Appropriations Act for
FY 2006 Conference Report,
which provides more than $17
billion for agricultural opera-
tions and activities.
"I am pleased that funding for
critical initiatives of importance
for Florida agriculture were in-
cluded in the bill, including valu-
able resources to prevent the
spread of citrus canker, which is
currently threatening Florida's
$9 billion citrus industry," said
Putnam, who successfully man-
aged the rule for the bill. "More
than $36.6 million has been des-
ignated for the Federal/State
Citrus Canker joint partnership
to allow detection and eradica-
tion of the disease to move for-
ward."
The FY 06 Agriculture Appro-
priations bill also continued re-
search funding for several Flor-
ida agricultural research pro-
grams. These include continued
resources to combat pests and
disease including citrus canker,
tristeza, and diaprepes at the
University of Florida Lake Al-
fred Station.
In addition, funding was dedi-
cated to help find alternatives to
methyl bromide, a crop protec-
tion for Florida's fruit and vege-
table industry, and other pro-
grams of significance to Florida
farmers and ranchers.
"Despite tight budgetary con-
straints, the overall agriculture
appropriations bill is a signifi-
cant step in addressing Florida's
agriculture needs, as well as
child nutrition, conservation,
food safety and other important
programs," Putnam concluded.

$3 Billion Planned For Road Projects


Gov. Jeb Bush has unveiled
more than $3 billion in transport
station improvements as part of
Florida's sweeping growth man-
agement reforms signed into law
last June.
The "pay-as-you-grow" pro-
posal overhauled the state's
growth management laws for the
first time in two decades to en-
sure roads, schools and water
are available to meet the needs
of Florida's growing communi-
ties.
The transportation funding
will be used to relieve a backlog
of road projects and improve ma-
jor transportation corridors
across the state.
"Investing in our transporta-
tion system is vital to Florida's
economic prosperity and our
high quality of life," said Gover-
nor Bush. "These crucial trans-
portation projects will benefit
Florida's citizens, visitors, and
businesses by moving people and
goods more efficiently."
The $3.1 billion in transporta-
tion improvements includes $2.8
billion in state money and $351
million in public .and private
partner funding to enhance the
Strategic Intermodal System
(SIS).
A statewide network of high-
priority transportation facilities,
the SIS makes up the core of
Florida's transportation system
and includes the state's largest
and most significant commercial
service airports, spaceport, deep-
water seaports, freight rail ter-
minals, passenger rail and inter-
city bus terminals, rail corridors,
waterways and highways.
"The department's three top
priorities are safety, mainte-
nance and mobility," said Florida
Department of Transportation
Secretary Denver Stutler. "Ac-
celerating our investment in
road and transportation projects
will improve the quality of life of
millions of Floridians while
strengthening our growing econ-
omy."
Projects planned for the next
five budget cycles will be pre-
sented during public hearings on
the Department of Transporta-
tion's proposed work program
this fall.
SIS projects selected for fund-
ing must be consistent with
adopted local government com-
prehensive plans and link to
growth management objectives
in the new law. Projects must
also relieve a backlog of trans-
portation needs, provide im-
proved alternatives for moving
goods or support mobility within
designated multimodal districts
and urban infill, redevelopment
and revitalization areas.
In addition, $52 million of
County Incentive Grant Program
and Small County Outreach Pro-
gram projects were placed in the
department's work program in
partnership with counties this
year to improve roadways, safety
and transportation facilities.
Major SIS projects funded un-


der the new initiative include:
South Florida
Palmetto Expressway from
Sunset Drive to SW 32 Street:

tawhatchee Bridge to SR 20: ad-
vance acquisition of right of way
for future construction of a four-
lane facility.
With hundreds of new resi-
dents moving to Florida daily,
the state's population is pro-
jected to top more than 20 mil-
lion by 2025.
The "pay-as-you-grow" system
bases decisions about new devel-
opment on the ability of Florida's
communities to provide adequate
infrastructure..
Under the plan, comprehen-
sive plans now require a budget
and timeline to address the
backlog of infrastructure along
with the increased demands of
new development.
The new law will generate
$7.5 billion to address transpor-
tation backlogs and ffiture needs
over the next decade.

Bartow Comes From Behind -
S* Call 285-8625
To Win Homecominf 28-14 or 533-4183


By JEFF THORNBURG
A come-from-behind 28-14 vic-
tory over the Lake Region Thun-
der capped the 2005 prep foot-
ball season Friday for the Bar-
tow Yellow Jackets, in a hard-
hitting, highly emotional contest
at Bartow Memorial Stadium be-
fore 750 fans.
Trailing by seven through
three quarters, Bartow scored
three touchdowns in the fourth,.
to avoid the upset by the scrappy
Thunder.
The game was marred by 21
penalties for 195 yards and four
player injections.
"Regardless of which way the
calls are going," said Bartow
Head Coach Shawn Killets, "you
have to keep your composure."
The Yellow Jackets had two
running backs with 100+ yards,
and four different Jackets who
scored touchdowns. Senior
Brandon Bridges rushed nine
times for 104 yards including the
game's first score, a two-yard
run, capping a 60-yard drive.
Junior Jamal Burgess ran 11
times, gaining 108 yards, and
scored Bartow's final touchdown,
a 39-yard sprint around the left
side with less than a minute re-
maining in the game, to seal the
Bartow victory.
All the Thunder's points came
in the third quarter. Following a
Bartow turnover, Lake Region
tied the game with 19-yard mis-
direction run up the middle by
Rodney Zeally.
Lake Region took the lead on
their next possession when
sophomore quarterback Matt


Hopkins tossed a 56-yard pass to
Justin Beckford, who made an
over-the-shoulder catch, and out-

ran the Jacket secondary.
Bartow tied and then .took the
lead midway through the fourth
quarter within a span of two
minutes.
Junior quarterback Devarious
Cook, who did not play the first
half, finished a 62-yard drive
with a quarterback keeper run
around left side.
About seven starters sat out
different portions of the game
because of a coach's decision.
Moments later, Bartow was
back in front with the longest
play from. scrimmage this year,
an 81-yard off-tackle trap play
through the right side by sopho-
more Willie Henderson.
Senior Jacket defensive back
Jack Edmund, celebrating his
18th birthday, was among the
team leaders in tackles, was in-
jected late in the game, and
then later was crowned Home-
coming king at the dance.
"The positive is that you win
the game and you move on," said
Killets. "You move on to the
spring with a lot of positive mo-
mentum, you saw a lot of young
kids out there starting this foot-
ball game, so we are excited
about what the spring holds".
